Union ministers participate in ‘Run for Unity’ on Patel’s birth anniversary

first_imgNew Delhi, Oct 31 (PTI) Several Union ministers participated in the ‘Run for Unity’ across the country Wednesday to mark the 143rd birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the statue of the country’s first Home Minister in Gujarat.At a special function held in the national capital, President Ram Nath Kovind and others paid floral tributes at Patel’s statue on his birth anniversary, which is observed as ‘Rashtriya Ekta Divas’. The ruling BJP has described Patel as the man who thwarted efforts to disintegrate India.Had Sardar Patel not united the country, we would need visas to see lions or pay homage at Somnath or view the Charminar in Hyderabad, the prime minister said while unveiling Patel’s statue, the tallest in the world at 182 metres, in Kevadiya.Several party leaders, including Modi, have accused the Congress of “ignoring” the efforts of Patel, B R Ambedkar and Subhash Chandra Bose in the freedom struggle and creation of post-independence India.The Congress, in turn, has accused the BJP of appropriating its leaders like Patel for political interests.Even before the BJP came to power in 2014, it had organised a similar event in December 2013 to mark the death anniversary of Patel.On this day in 2014, Modi as Prime Minister, had presided over the ‘Run for Unity’ event at Rajpath.Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and his cabinet colleagues Ravi Shankar Prasad, Harsh Vardhan and Vijay Goel Wednesday participated in the ‘Run For Unity’ event organised at different places in the city.advertisementThe home minister and Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore flagged off the main event in Delhi.In Tamil Nadu, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman participated in the run.In Guwahati, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Union Health Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda flagged off the run.PTI NAB SRYlast_img read more

Report: Hoffenheim 2 Bayern 0

first_imgHoffenheim 2 Bayern Munich 0: Ancelotti’s men succumb to in-form Uth double Patric Ridge Last updated 2 years ago 02:26 10/9/2017 Hoffenheim - cropped Getty Images Mark Uth was at the double as Bayern Munich slumped to a surprise 2-0 defeat to Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich slumped to their first defeat of the season as Mark Uth’s clinical double claimed a surprise 2-0 Bundesliga victory for Hoffenheim.Carlo Ancelotti’s side looked leggy throughout Saturday’s encounter at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena, and Uth made sure that Hoffenheim – the last side to beat Bayern in the Bundesliga back in April – took full advantage.Starting up front in the absence of the injured Sandro Wagner, Uth capitalised on sloppy defending from Mats Hummels and Javi Martinez to put Hoffenheim ahead 27 minutes in, with Bayern having failed to test Oliver Baumann at the other end bar an early opportunity for Robert Lewandowski. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing And despite a positive start to the second half from Bayern, Uth doubled his tally and made it five goals in his last five games in all competitions with a precise finish at the culmination of a swift Hoffenheim counter-attack six minutes after the restart.The visitors pressed late on, but a late chance for Martinez – set-up by James Rodriguez on his Bayern debut – was all they could muster, with Hoffenheim holding firm to move level on points with current league leaders Borussia Dortmund.Bayern, meanwhile, must now switch their focus to the Champions League, with Anderlecht visiting the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.On his 400th Bayern appearance, Thomas Muller nearly turned provider with a pinpoint cross into Lewandowski, whose first-time effort clipped off the crossbar on its way over.Despite Bayern’s dominance, Hoffenheim kept the champions at arm’s length, and Julian Nagelsmann’s tactics paid off when quick thinking from Andrej Kramaric from a throw-in caught out Hummels.Uth reacted swiftly, stealing in unchallenged to drive into the area and plant a neat finish past Manuel Neuer at the near post.In search of an immediate response, Lewandowski tried his luck with a free-kick from range, but the Poland striker’s dipping shot inched wide of the left-hand upright.4 – Mark #Uth scored 4 of 8 Hoffenheim goals in all comps 2017-18. Pillar. #TSGFCB— OptaFranz (@OptaFranz) September 9, 2017Bayern’s determination to restore parity stretched their defence, though, with Neuer doing well to keep out Steven Zuber’s low drive prior to the interval, while Corentin Tolisso headed straight at Baumann.Kingsley Coman was the next to test Hoffenheim’s defence, drilling over from the edge of the hosts’ area after cutting inside from the left flank.But it was not to be for Bayern, who found themselves further behind when Uth side-footed home from 10 yards out having latched onto Zuber’s cut-back.Ancelotti was swift to make a change, bringing on Arjen Robben, though it was the introduction of Bayern’s next substitute – James – which almost paid dividends late on.Colombia star James whipped in a delightful free-kick that Martinez met, but, with the aid of the crossbar, Baumann managed to keep it out as Hoffenheim held firm for a well-deserved victory. Key Opta stats: – Thomas Muller made his 400th appearance in competitive games for Bayern Munich – since the club’s promotion to the top flight in 1965, only 13 players appeared in more games.- Mark Uth became the first player to score a brace for Hoffenheim against Bayern.- On matchday three, this is the earliest Bayern loss in a Bundesliga season since 2011-12. Back then they had lost on matchday one to Borussia Monchengladbach.- Hoffenheim have kept clean sheets in their last four league home games – a new record for the team.   read morelast_img read more

Egypt, SCCT Discussing Port Said Concession Extension

first_imgzoom The Egyptian government is in talks with representatives of Suez Canal Container Terminal (SCCT) on a contract extension of the concession for the East Port Said port, located at the entrance of the Suez Canal, Ahmed Amin, an advisor to Egypt’s Transport Minister told Reuters.The focus of the new stage of talks, scheduled to take place in December, will be a 14-year extension estimated to be worth over USD 1.5 billion, Reuters reported.Under the renegotiated deal SCCT would be freed from paying rent and other fees in exchange for an USD 80 million investment into a new pier construction, according to Amin.Carriers are favoring ever more Asia-US East Coast container services via the Suez Canal route instead of the traditional Panama Canal route, according to UK-based shipping consultant Drewry.One of the reasons behind the switch is that substantially larger ships can be deployed on the Suez route.The average size of ships on the Suez route is about 7,500 teu, whereas on the Panama Canal route the average is about 4,500 teu due to the Panama Canal’s current maximum size limit of about 5,000 teu.The switch to the Suez Canal route has now absorbed 91 post-Panamax vessels, Drewry’s data shows.The trend may expand even further as expansion of the Suez Canal gears up.Earlier in October the Egyptian government awarded Suez Canal expansion contracts.The ‘new’ Suez Canal will partially run in parallel to the current waterway and entail widening and deepening of existing parts thereof.It is expected that the expanded canal will result in doubling of revenues for Egypt by 2023.World Maritime News Staff; Image: SCCTlast_img read more

Exxon Mobil withdraws application to approve 25 billion BC LNG project

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – The B.C. government says Exxon Mobil Corp. has withdrawn its environmental assessment application for a $25-billion LNG export facility it proposed in 2015.The apparent shelving of the project is a blow to the West Coast liquefied natural gas export industry which at one time featured about 20 proposals but has resulted in only one firm commitment to build.The withdrawal came in a one-sentence update on the website of the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. Exxon did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The project had been proposed by Exxon and its Canadian partner, Imperial Oil Ltd., for Tuck Inlet in the Prince Rupert area on B.C.’s north coast.Earlier this year, Calgary-based Imperial took a writedown of $289 million on its northern B.C. Horn River shale gas development, a 50-50 venture with Exxon that was once expected to become a major supply source for B.C.’s LNG industry.In October, Royal Dutch Shell and its partners announced final investment approval for the $40-billion LNG Canada project, including a gas liquefaction plant in Kitimat on B.C.’s coast and a 670-kilometre gas supply pipeline.last_img read more

Amid ongoing political tensions situation in Burundi not suitable for credible elections

The overall political situation, along with the Government’s decision to revise the Constitution,  has hampered economic development, said Michel Kafando, the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Burundi.At the same time, though Burundi has made some progress, human rights violations are still being reported and the humanitarian situation remains a worry.The environment is “not suitable” for the conduct of credible elections, planned for 2020, he added.Presenting the Secretary-General’s latest report on the situation in the country, Mr. Kafando highlighted the efforts made at the inter-Burundian dialogue and said the region had decided to continue those talks, with strong commitments from the African Union and other regional partners.“Dialogue remains indispensable, as the process sought to bring Burundians closer together with a view to building a strong nation,” he added.Also at the Security Council meeting, Jürg Lauber (Switzerland), the Chair of the Burundi Configuration of the Peacebuilding Commission, said that the Configuration would align its work with subregional, regional and international efforts, focusing on the East African Community’s mediation initiative, a path to peaceful elections, socioeconomic dialogue with the Government and partners, as well as humanitarian and national reconciliation initiatives.Noting that he would visit Burundi in the coming weeks, Mr. Lauber pledged to focus on five key issues:  mediation efforts of the East African Community; the path leading to the conduct of free, fair and democratic elections in 2020; socioeconomic dialogue with the Government and its international partners; the humanitarian situation; and efforts towards national reconciliation.He also informed the 15-member Security Council that the Peacebuilding Fund had approved three new projects for Burundi worth $6.5 million and outlined several conclusions based on the Configuration’s recent work, which underscored the importance of the regionally-led dialogue, the 2020 elections, humanitarian efforts, improving socioeconomic development, the swift signing of Memoranda of Understanding – both between the Government and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), and between the Government and the African Union – and the deployment of observers to provide a more accurate picture of human rights and civil society developments in Burundi. read more

EYEWITNESS More accomplishments…

…and nation sinksOur Eyewitness blew a fuse when he saw the pic of the “EC Independence Arch” being “commissioned”. Here’s the reason thousands of workers were stuck in traffic for hours; dozens of students were late and stressed out in their CSEC and UG exams and planes had to reschedule their flights, last Thursday: A photo-op of the head of ANSA McAL and his loyal country head handing over the arch to Prezzie and his Infrastructure Minister, Patterson.How low can we sink?? Maybe it’s something woven into our cultural roots?? From the time Columbus came with baubles and pieces of mirrors to exchange for our land and our labour?? When will we learn? So ANSA gives us a $20M shiny Aluminium arch – after the $605 million contract for pharma at TWICE the going price – and we have to spread wide? ANSA’s been making oodles of profits from their operations in Guyana – just check their Balance Sheet on the web? While the Trini economy has been tanking, guess where the profit’s been coming from? But have they made any investment in our manufacturing capabilities?? Not in this life!!How different are they from the old British colonial Bookers that had over 22 companies selling everything from needles to motor cars, but never put down a sugar refinery here to raise the value of our raw sugar. No! That was reserved for Britain just as ANSA’s manufacturing is reserved for Trinidad and elsewhere. We’re just a market into which the Caricom tariffs allow their goods to be dumped. No wonder their name here is ANSA McAL TRADING (GUYANA)!! They’re just traders – same as the Guyanese ones they used to hassle at Piarco Airport – save they ship their goods in containers and know folks at GRA!!Then, of course, there’s their purchase of a radio station – the ownership of which ceased to be questioned by the Government!! All other radio stations were “giveaways” – but this one!! It seems to have gone unnoticed that the moment they took over ownership, ANSA eliminated the diversity in musical genres that used to be aired into its own Trini notion of what is “proper” music.What’s scary about the ANSA Arch is it exposes what’s ahead with our present political leadership and the coming oil production.…in State broadcastingOne of the “125 accomplishments” of the Government, the Director of Public Information (can you think of a more Orwellian totalitarian name??) – but more familiarly known as the PM’s Shill – boasted about was the “$250M subsidy for NCN”!! Yes, the nitwit actually boasted about plunking all this money into broadcasting the Government’s propaganda – but can’t remove VAT on private education which amounts to less than this!! So what if this means stifling variety in the delivery of education – away from demotivated public school teachers??Anyhow, what does NCN need $250 million for? It’s not as if they’re a commercial-free broadcasting unit like the BBC in Britain or PBS in the US. NCN’s rates for TV are higher than all the other TV stations. What are they doing with all those revenues?? What the humungous subsidy means, however, is the Government is subsidising mediocrity.If the programming of NCN was even half-way decent, they could cover their costs. They need the subsidy to reward their propagandists!…in salaries?Another of the shill’s “accomplishments” was a $50,000 bonus to public service workers. But by giving the 10 per cent salary increase “prospectively” – FROM the announcement in August rather than for the year — the raise was LESS than the bonus!! Ouch!!

A proposal was then put forward for the Adaptation and Resilience Building in Guyana’s Agriculture sector.At that time, the OCC head said, Guyana was ahead of its sister countries in terms of capacity building and accessing support but took the opportunity to fast-track the process of mobilising resources for this important sector.Following the meeting in May 2017, the FAO fielded a mission to Guyana in June, 2017 to assist the Ministry of Agriculture, its sub-agencies and the OCC to work on crafting the Readiness Proposal, which will be focused on generating resilience agriculture in the coastal area of Guyana.In October 2017, FAO Guyana, as a first step to formulate the Full Funding proposal, two letters of agreement were signed with the University of Guyana (UG) Faculty of Earth and Environmental Sciences and the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), which currently have a coordinated work plan for the delivery of baseline information, climate change vulnerability and other assessments.These will serve as inputs for the design of the final proposal to be submitted to the GCF.The first workshop is part of FAO’s support to prepare the project Concept Note for the Full Proposal to address climate change adaptation and resilience building within the Agriculture sector will be held from August 2-3 at the Regency Suites.The FAO has committed an additional $40Million (US$200,000) to ensure the necessary baseline data and vulnerability assessment for the agriculture sector is completed, and which is required for the preparation of the full proposal. read more

Vitamine C effets sources carence à quoi ça sert

first_imgVitamine C : effets, sources, carence, qu’est-ce que c’est ?La vitamine C, ou acide ascorbique, est l’une des vitamines hydrosolubles les plus connues. Sa réputation est sans doute proportionnelle aux nombreuses fonctions qu’elle assume au sein du corps humain.Qu’est-ce que la vitamine C ?À l’image de toutes les vitamines, la vitamine C, ou acide ascorbique, est un acide organique qui n’est pas synthétisé par l’organisme, mais qui lui est pourtant indispensable. En effet, la vitamine C est en quelque sorte un composé hydrosoluble multifonctionnel puisqu’il est impliqué dans de nombreux mécanismes métaboliques. Ainsi, l’acide ascorbique possède une action antioxydante particulièrement efficace grâce, notamment, à sa faculté à capturer les radicaux libres. La vitamine s’avère également être un parfait rempart contre les attaques virales et bactériennes tandis qu’elle s’affiche comme un rouage essentiel du processus d’absorption du fer. En outre, elle possède un pouvoir protecteur sur les parois des vaisseaux sanguins ainsi que des propriétés cicatrisantes très importantes.Quels sont les apports journaliers recommandés ?En France, les apports recommandés quotidiennement sont identiques chez l’homme et chez la femme, soit 93 mg/j. Seuls l’âge et quelques exceptions sont des paramètres susceptibles d’accroître les besoins journaliers. C’est le cas, par exemple, pour les enfants âgés de 3 à 17 ans dont les apports doivent atteindre 77 mg/j. Les sportifs et les femmes enceintes ont également des besoins accrus par rapport aux recommandations moyennes puisqu’ils sont respectivement de 1 000 mg et de 80 mg par jour. Il est également possible d’accroître ses apports pendant quelques jours afin de combattre plus efficacement une infection.Quels sont les risques d’une carence en vitamine C ?Face à la polyvalence de cette vitamine, un déficit même léger peut avoir des répercussions notables sur la santé. En France, les carences modérées en acide ascorbique ne sont pas rares et restent assez facilement détectées par le corps médical, car elles se manifestent par des symptômes relativement caractéristiques : asthénie, sensibilité aux virus et aux bactéries, cicatrisation difficile, douleurs articulaires, anorexie, amaigrissement… Généralement, c’est une alimentation mal équilibrée et non diversifiée qui est à l’origine d’une carence en vitamine C même si quelques affections digestives, à l’image de la gastrite, peuvent aussi l’expliquer.Quels aliments contiennent de la vitamine C ?Pour satisfaire les besoins quotidiens en vitamine, il faut consommer environ 500 g de fruits et légumes. Il faut savoir que les fruits, et plus spécifiquement les agrumes et les fruitsrouges, sont les plus riches en acide ascorbique, juste devant les légumes. Pour être sûr de bénéficier de tous les apports nutritionnels nécessaires, il est conseillé d’en manger une partie sous une forme crue, car la cuisson détériore les vitamines.Quelles sont les maladies en lien avec l’acide ascorbique ?À lire aussiAutisme : la vitamine B9 pourrait permettre de réduire le risque à la naissanceUne carence profonde en vitamine C peut occasionner le scorbut. Cette pathologie millénaire n’existe pratiquement plus en France, car les déficits délétères sont devenus très rares. En effet, de nombreux produits agroalimentaires sont enrichis en vitamine C afin de réduire considérablement les risques de développement du scorbut au sein de la population. Il faut savoir que cette maladie grave peut avoir d’importantes conséquences puisqu’elle est susceptible d’entraîner des hémorragies, des œdèmes massifs, des déchaussements de dents, voire le décès. Le 27 juillet 2017 à 15:28 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

PRESIDENT JAMMEH PROMISES TO TRANSFORM JARRA JAPPINEH

first_imgBy Aja Musu Bah DaffehPresident Jammeh the chairman and founder of the APRC party on Sunday 20 November 2016 held meetings in Jappineh Jarra Central District and Soma in the Jarra West District Lower River Region LRR where he was welcomed by a large crowd of jubilant supporters.Speaking at the Jappineh meeting, the President noted that the people of Jarra Central are loyal to the APRC; that since the APRC has always won in Jarra Central he assured them that they will receive massive development in their district which no district will enjoy as they will.“I promise that by the help of the Almighty that a major health centre will be built, the Kabada road will be constructed and you will be provided with electricity supply and if there is a need by 2018, I will provide a power station whether you vote for me or not,” says the President.Fatou lamin Faye thanked the people of Jarra Jappineh for their rousing welcome of the President and entourage. She disclosed that very soon a Secondary School will be built in Jarra Jappineh. She however said the reason why they do not have a Secondary School is because acquiring land for it was a problem but now thanks to the President land has been allocated and the School will be built soon.The Minister of Works, Construction and Infrastructure who doubles as APRC campaign manager Balla Garba Jahumpa revealed to the people of Jappineh that Kabada, Buiba and most of the communities will benefit from electricity, clean drinking water and roads. He appealed to them to increase their votes from 81% to 100%.The women mobiliser Aja Mansata Kebbeh said President Jammeh is one of a kind and that being the reason western people criticise the President because of the Peace, stability, tranquility and security he has brought to our Nation.She continued that since the referendum Jarra Jappineh was behind and is still behind President Jammeh and assured the President that they will massively vote for him, noting that they do not even need ballot boxes.Kebba Sallah the youth mobiliser noted that after the nomination he has mobilised all the youths to vote for the APRC party. He continued to say that all the youths only know the way to the land and say no to “back way’ because they believe in the slogan of  Vision 2016 “eat what you grow and grow what you eat.”Bahum Jallow chairman of Sasida said President Jammeh is known for his generosity because he supplies his Nation with food and agricultural products; that whether they know it or not he has never neglected anyone since he emerged as the leader of the 1994 ‘revolution’.
