ECI unlikely to validate BJPs barb regarding Bengals booths

first_imgKolkata: The Election Commission of India (ECI) may not fulfill BJP’s demand of declaring all the polling booths in Bengal as ‘sensitive’ as there is no situation in the state disturbing law and order.As per the latest observation by the office of the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) in the state, there has been no law and order situation in any part of the state since announcement of the Lok Sabha polls. The CEO’s office has so far identified around 18,461 booths as ‘sensitive’, spreading over 9 districts in the state. The ECI officials in the state are in the process of identifying the sensitive booths across the state, on the basis of their previous records of violence. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellersThey have been carrying out a detailed examination of the nature of polling booths and are trying to identify the pockets which had witnessed violence in the previous few elections. According to sources in the CEO’s office, around 2,357 booths in South 24-Parganas have been designated as sensitive, while Birbhum has 1,556 sensitive booths. There are around 1,220 sensitive booths in Malda and 1,197 such booths in Murshidabad. In case of Hooghly, Cooch Behar, North Dinajpur and North 24-Parganas, the figures are 1,008, 503, 657 and 981 respectively. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaIt may be mentioned here that Trinamool Congress supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had raised her voice against BJP’s demand of declaring all the booths in Bengal as ‘super sensitive’. Banerjee had also asked how BJP prepared the list of sensitive polling booths and slammed the vindictive politics by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah. She also urged the ECI to act impartially. Banerjee’s reaction came soon after a BJP delegation met ECI officials in Delhi on March 13 and apprised them of the party’s demands. Meanwhile, 10 companies of Central forces arrived at different districts on Friday and started area domination to boost the confidence of the voters. One company of CRPF jawans started route march along the bordering areas of Birbhum, Bankura and West Burdwan on Friday morning. They are keeping a close watch on the Jharkhand border as well. Forces are being deployed in various parts of South 24-Parganas, North 24-Parganas, Malda, Murshidabad and others. An ECI team headed by Deputy Election Commissioner Sudip Jain is expected to come to the city on Saturday and meet the senior officials of the CEO’s office and the senior police officers in the state to supervise the poll-preparedness.last_img read more

UN to send humanitarian assessment mission to Ethiopias Somali regional state

The Government of Ethiopia has agreed to facilitate the inter-agency mission at the UN’s request. “It is my hope that the findings of this assessment mission will construct a clearer picture of the humanitarian situation in the Region,” UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator Fidele Sarassoro said today of the mission, which he will launch in Jijiga, the regional capital.“Equally important to us is that the findings of this mission also support the delivery of assistance to the people of Somali Region,” he added.The mission includes staff from the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Food Programme (WFP), World Health Organization (WHO), the UN Department of Safety and Security, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).The UN and other humanitarian actors have been supporting pastoral and agro-pastoral populations in the Somali Region with humanitarian and development assistance, particularly since 2000. 29 August 2007The United Nations is sending a humanitarian mission tomorrow to Ethiopia’s Somali Region, which has been affected by security operations, to assess relief needs, in particular access to food, water, health and nutrition services, and to monitor the dispatch and distribution of emergency food aid. read more

Ban urges greater use of digital technology to improve living conditions

“The United Nations is committed to ensuring that people everywhere have equitable access to information and communication technologies,” Mr. Ban said in a message to mark the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day.“On this International Day, let us resolve to fully harness the great potential of the digital revolution in the service of life-saving relief operations, sustainable development and lasting peace,” the Secretary-General said.He notes that the use of telecommunications was crucial to saving lives in the wake of the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January. Communications technologies were used to coordinate aid and to provide desperately sought information about victims, Mr. Ban said.“The [UN] International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and its commercial partners contributed scores of satellite terminals and helped to provide wireless communications to help disaster relief and clean-up efforts,” he said, lauding efforts by the ITU and its partners to promote broadband access in rural and remote areas around the world.“Greater access can mean faster progress toward the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” the Secretary-General said, referring to the poverty alleviation and social development targets that countries have agreed to make efforts to achieve by 2015.“The Internet drives trade, commerce and even education. Telemedicine is improving health care. Earth monitoring satellites are being used to address climate change. And green technologies are promoting cleaner cities,” said Mr. Ban. “As these innovations grow in importance, so, too, does the need to bridge the digital divide,” he added.The theme of this year’s observance of the day is “Better Cities, Better Life with ICTs.” Mr. Ban said that the theme was a reminder that communications technologies must be employed – and disposed of – in a manner that raises living standards while protecting the environment.“Better Cities, Better Life” is also the theme of the World Expo in Shanghai, where the UN has a permanent Pavilion, and where the ITU today marked its 145th anniversary with the presentation of the World Telecommunication and Information Society Awards.This year’s laureates – Malaysian Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak; Chairman and CEO of China Mobile, Wang Jianzhou; and Robert Kahn, President and CEO of the Corporation for National Research Initiatives – were recognized for their contribution to the ongoing digital revolution and their dedication to promoting ICTs as a means of providing a better life for humanity. 17 May 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today urged the world to harness the power of telecommunications and information technologies to improve life-saving services, promote sustainable development and foster international peace. read more

Closing 2016 Youth Forum senior UN official says young people key to

“We should aim high and we have the potential to reach ambitious goals,” Oh Joon said at the Forum’s closing ceremony. “What else have we learned? The challenges the youth is facing are real,” he said.Mr. Oh listed unemployment, poverty, climate change, and inequality as issues needing to be addressed through “a cross-cutting and interconnected approach.” “This being said, solutions exist and there is a need for an inspiring commitment by all stakeholders to drive the 2030 Agenda forward,” he stressed, referring to the new set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by all UN Member States last September.This year’s Youth Forum, an annual event taking place for the fifth time, focused on how young people can support the goals worldwide. ECOSOC’s President underlined that youth will play an important role in advocating for the SDGs so that people all over the world know about them. “This is a prerequisite to ensure that nobody is left behind,” he declared.Meanwhile, a key message that emerged from the forum was the recognition that young people are not only key actors in advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, but they are also directly affected by the challenges the SDGs seek to tackle.“One of these challenges is the prevailing employment crisis young people face all across the globe,” said Mr. Oh, delivering ECOSOC’s President Statement. “As President of the Economic and Social Council, I welcome the launch of the UN system’s Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth by the ILO Director-General, Guy Ryder, at the opening of our Forum.”The 54-member body also highlighted key messages and recommendations that emerged from the Forum. These included not just working for youth, but with youth to promote the SDGs; creating participatory and inclusive political processes for all the diverse voices of youth to be heard; creating not just jobs but decent jobs for young people; and enhancing the quality of education and training for them to meet today’s labour market needs.Mr. Oh also highlighted that the level of engagement during this year’s Youth Forum has shown that young people are ready to act to implement the SDGs. read more

EYEWITNESS Orwellian world…

Around the time, they “discovered” us (evidently, we’d been lost or misplaced!), sovereignty was defined as residing in the Monarch. He’d been decreed by God to rule and his orders were to be obeyed to the “T”! If you dared disobey, it was” “Off with his head!!”But a strange thing happened over the next few centuries. Ordinary Europeans – especially the ones exploiting the “colonies” – outside of the nobility started improving their material circumstances and soon demanded a share of sovereignty – making rules for themselves. And so, after a gap of 2000 years with Ancient Greece, “democracy” came to Europe! And the Kings were decreed not to be so divine as not to take advice from the people – through their representatives.Now we natives, of course, weren’t as advanced as the Europeans and so had to wait another hundred or so years until we’re tutored in the ways of governing ourselves. So, by 1966, we were declared ready for our “democratic” right to share in our governance and share in the “sovereignty”. Heck…our Constitution declared that sovereignty RESIDED in we, the people!!But, as we know, Burnham and his PNC decided we weren’t REALLY ready…we were still lacking in the nuances of democracy and he had to “mould” our destiny by rigging elections for the next 20-odd (VERY odd!) years. By bringing our country back to a “state of nature” so “we the people” could live like “noble savages”! Burnham, of course, had to make the ultimate sacrifice and accumulate all sovereignty in himself! Poor fella! There were some recalcitrant souls, of course, who chafed at the demands of “noblesse oblige”, which would allow the “small man to be the real man”!Now after the PPP managed to return to office in 1992, they had the temerity to remove the PNC’s debt burden, expand the economy and move us from a “Highly Indebted Poor Country” into a “High Middle Income Country” etc, etc by holding democratic elections in 1997, 2001, 2006, 2011, and 2015. In the last one, of course, the PNC returned to power – they had the troops to guarantee not just “office” but POWER – and promptly promised to return us to the path marked out by the Founder Leader Burnham.And it’s against this background we can understand Prezzie’s unilateral appointment of the GECOM Chair – he has to “mould” us further.It goes without saying, of course, he’ll have to sacrifice himself and allow all sovereignty to flow into his bemedaled body!! …in SugarIn Orwell’s “1984”, written in 1949, he describes the totalitarian future he saw lying ahead for mankind. Well, after what proved to be a false start by the PNC between 1968 and 1985, it’s clear (even if you hadn’t seen the argument above) by the headline in yesterday’s Chronic, we’ll all be goose stepping in unison soon.Here it is, three sugar plantations are going to be shuttered, at least 7000 workers are losing their jobs –which will put at least 30,000 men, women and children on the breadlines and the Chronic announces in banner frontpage headlines: “Future looks sweet for GuySuCo”!!!Like in “1984”, the PNC believes, “…if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told the same tale –then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’But what the PNC forgets, is Orwell also wrote: “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”Guyanese must speak truth to power!!…and teachersAfter the teachers said “enough is enough” to being given Larwah one more time, they threatened to strike.  But after a meeting with Prezzie, they recanted!!In the days of Divine Kings, peasants also fell on their knees in HIS presence!! read more

Top readers comments of the week

first_img“Lily Allen’s Boobs”Disappointingly misleading 😉 Image via @SamScott200Inspired by this story from the US, we asked commenters if they’d ever performed a random act of kindness. Mickey Mouse‘s story was hard to beat: Not really random but I once found over a grand cash in an envelope on the toilet floor in a golf club. It was the day before Christmas Eve and I went around each table until I eventually found the guy who verified it. He wasn’t even playing golf that day but having a pint with friends before he bought the family Christmas presents and he nearly got sick when he realised. I think most people would do the same.Meanwhile Michael Russell has been doing it for a long time: If I have time left on a parking ticket, i always try and give it to someone……. I’ve been doing it for years, then the other day- as I went to pay for a ticket, someone gave me their one with two hours on it…..it finally came full circle! I…feel…old… Hippocrateeth got 694 thumbs up for this observation on an article about how a transatlantic flight had to make an emergency landing at Dublin Airport:I was on an Intercity express bus that stopped the far side of mullingar for 20 mins once. I think there was trouble with the fan belt.Spot any good comments? Let us know: mail christine@thejournal.ie with any suggestions for comments of the week. Michael Kennedy had the second most popular comment on the site this week with more than 1020 thumbs up for this post about the grisly story about how a dog was hacked to death by its owner in Wexford: It is hard to be shocked anymore in this country but stories like this remind us how incredibly cruel an animal mankind is. Hopefully this animal is put behind bars. My mam once said “Do you remember Italia 90? Ah you do, you were going mad in the womb”When prosecutors in the UK insisted on getting a statement from PC Peach, they hadn’t realised that the officer was in fact a dog. They received this witness statement – which Maurice Wrenn described as:Woof Justus EVERY SATURDAY MORNING we like to take a look at all the best comments left on the site by you lot over the past week.This week there was a lot of talk about Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s apology to the Magdalene women, Gardaí protesting over pay and conditions, Oscar Pistorius, and whether Ireland needs a new bank holiday to commemorate the Easter Rising. Then there was more discussion about abortion, bad driving and er, explicit sausage talk.So here, in no particular order, are the standout comments from the week that was.The top 5 articles which received the most comments this week1. Column: Kenny is dragging Fine Gael into a kamikaze mission on abortion (306 comments)2. Sinn Féin wants to make Easter Rising anniversary a bank holiday (245 comments)3.

Sorry about that. Paula Kelly‘s mother had a different perspective: Paddy O’Donnell got 764 thumbs up when he made this comeback to someone who questioned why more people hadn’t turned up to a major rally of frontline public sector staff on Monday:Sorry aoife! I’m at work providing a public service.Bruce Wardrop got 732 thumbs up for this comment underneath an article with the headline “Lily Allen’s boobs, awkward exes: The 6 best things at the Brit Awards”: 5 of the comments which received the most thumbs upThe single most popular comment this week was this from James Halford which got 1069 thumbs up on the article about 13 things today’s Leaving Cert students have no memory of: There was a huge number of comments in response to the Taoiseach’s apology to women held in Magdalene laundries. Mister got 100 thumbs up for this one: A very fine apology. A reflection the way Irish society turned on its own people once we achieved independence and gave us plenty of reason to be uncomfortable with the behaviour, intolerance and indifference of the generation of our parents and grandparents. As an Irish person I am ashamed of that part of my country’s past and the attitudes of those generations. I am proud of the bravery of those women. The Taoiseach’s emotion is unsurprising – he has sat down and listened to some of these horror stories first-hand in the past few weeks. It would take a hard and soulless person not to be affected by this.Fungi the Dolphin is looking his age. Fergus pointed out that it was understandable: My skin would be that wrinkly as well if I was in the bath a long time lolThe number of people calling the national LGBT Helpline has grown so much that more volunteers are needed to deal with the demand. Paul Walsh commented on some of the difficulties still facing young people: I have a young gay relative who suffered from anxiety for years.  Doctor’s would advise him to ‘get out for a walk’.  They didn’t think to ask him about his sexuality and realise that he was hiding this huge secret.  I asked him had he talked to any helplines.  He said that the evening hours of the LGBT helpline meant that he couldn’t talk to tem as it was tea time at his house and he couldn’t talk then.  I’m sure he’d have appreciated being able to talk to someone in the early afternoon when he’d have lots of excuses to be out of the house.  He’d talked to the Samaritans but they would just talk about suicidal tendancies and couldn’t advise him on gay issues.People think that it’s the best time ever to be gay and that there’s a lot of acceptance out there.  However it’s hard for gay adolescents listening to the debates on gay marraige constantly.  People constantly giving their opinion about why ‘gays shouldn’t marry’, and certainly ‘gays shouldn’t rare children’.  We try to tell our children to feel free to come out, not to allow themselves be bullyied, that they are as good as everyone else, yet there is this background noise telling them that really they’re not as good as everyone else.last_img read more

Blazers win fourth straight drop Knicks to 418

first_imgNEW YORK — Portland coach Terry Stotts always knows he can dial up LaMarcus Aldridge’s number when the Trail Blazers need someone to settle them down. Aldridge scored 24 points, including six in the final 2:46, and the Trail Blazers regrouped after blowing a 11-point lead in the fourth quarter to beat the New York Knicks 103-99 on Sunday night for their fourth straight victory.“He does that often,” Stotts said. “He’s a stabilizing influence at the offensive end. We have a lot ways we can score, but when things are going a little sideways we usually rely on him.” Carmelo Anthony had 23 points with LeBron James sitting courtside, but the Knicks lost their eighth straight and 12th in their last 13. J.R. Smith scored 20 points off the bench and Amare Stoudemire added 16 for New York, whose 4-18 start is a franchise worst.“Losing games as close as we are losing them, whether it’s five or six points over the past 13 games, this is new to me. This feeling is new to me,” Anthony said.last_img read more

Startup Playi using friendly robots to teach kids computer programming

first_img(Phys.org) —Startup Play-i has created a crowd-sourcing campaign to gather funds for building and selling its pair of robots called Bo and Yana—both are part of an overall toy design to teach children as young as five years old, to program a computer. The idea, the team says, is to get children interested in programming by making it a part of storytelling. Citation: Startup “Play-i” using friendly robots to teach kids computer programming (2013, October 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-10-startup-play-i-friendly-robots-kids.html More information: www.play-i.com/ The two robots look and behave differently. Yana has three wheels and can roll around, it can also play its little xylophone if programmed to do so. Yana, which the creative team behind the robots calls the storyteller, is able to make different recognizable sounds on demand.The team behind Play-i is a collection of people who used to work for big tech companies such as Google, Apple and Frog Design. They started their company with the idea that children are capable of learning sophisticated concepts if they are presented in the right way. Bo and Yana are programmed using kid-friendly icons on a smartphone or tablet (since the operating system is iOS, that means iPhone and iPad, at least for now). To get either of the robots to do something, children develop a story around what it is they want done, then use the icons to develop the story, which results in the robots carrying out actions that follow what they’ve described. One example would be having Bo retrieve a flower from another robot, or a person, then carry it to someone else for presentation. Yana on the other hand can be taught to emit a sound like a helicopter if someone touches it. The concept is simple, by breaking down something that seems complex into something that is actually small parts of a story, children can develop more complex programs.The Play-i team is also looking to the future with their robots—code that is created from the icons is displayed on the tablet screen so that the child can see what they have wrought—as they grow older they can progress to writing code directly, giving them even more control over their toys.The crowd-funding campaign has a goal of collecting $250,000, if that number is reached, Play-i says the robots will be available for purchase by this summer, likely priced at $199 and $69 for Bo and Yana respectively.

[COLUMN_BREAK]””The spring numbers are very encouraging, especially as we see substantial tightening of the numbers of homes on the market,”” said Michael D. Oldenettel, CRS, GRI, IAR president and managing broker/owner with RE/MAX Results Plus. “”While prices are inching up slightly due to strong demand, the interest rates continue to be a powerful lure for those who want to own a home and the spring housing market looks to be a strong one.””Out of the 102 counties reporting to IAR, 55 showed year-over-year home sales gains, while 42 showed yearly median price improvements. Meanwhile, the inventory of homes for sale in April was 62,503 units, a 30.6 percent drop compared to last year.

We hope such behaviour will not be repeated,” a statement said.“The protection and conservation of these species is an obligation for all of us. Behaviours that harass and or destroy marine life are condemnable.”The department said sea turtles were a priority species and were also protected through the European Habitats Directive, which was transposed into national law in 2003.According to the legislation “the killing, the persecution, or the intentional harassment of these species and their capture, purchase, sale or possession is prohibited,” it added.“Those who are fortunate enough to encounter a sea turtle or other marine species in the beautiful underwater world of Cyprus can admire them from a distance without harassing them. it is important that we can coexist with nature and respect it.” You May LikeCars 2018These Are The Cars Only Millionaires HaveCars 2018UndoCancer Symptoms | Search AdsCommon Signs That Your Body is Battling CancerCancer Symptoms | Search AdsUndoIcePopMan Rescues Moose And She Returns With A Big SurpriseIcePopUndo Bale’s China move called off by Real MadridUndoWidowers threaten legal action over pensionsUndoKorkolis brings magic to the stageUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
