Young Huskies team enjoys a solid season

first_img BY WARREN RAPPLEYEAStaff Writer Matawan High School boys tennis team is looking for a strong showing over its last five matches to help carry it into next season. Coach Paul Pacifico’s youthful team is 5-10, but there are plenty of promising players on board, including five freshmen, one of whom, Dab Michelin, who plays third singles, leads the team with 10 wins. “We knew going in that this would be a rebuilding year, so I’m pleased with our progress,” Pacifico said. “We’re also in a tough conference, so our guys are adjusting to varsity play against some very good competition.” Pacifico noted that his two captains, seniors Chris Brady and Heseyin Tunceroglu, who play at first and second singles, respectively, have worked well with the younger players and have proven to be good leaders on and off the court. Both Brady and Tunceroglu have earned academic scholarships, with Brady attending Wake Forest, while Tunceroglu will attend New York University. Juniors Jon Strauss and Mike Lewandowski played well together at first doubles. Lewandowski, a lefty, showed plenty of grit playing despite a broken right wrist. Hardworking Austin Chang and Nick Barrett, an unorthodox newcomer who finds ways to win points, are at second doubles where they have shown much promise, Pacifico said. Two other freshmen, Vincent Ruggerio and Thomas Incorvaia, will also be heard from in the future. Pacifico said both players have worked long hours, regularly staying long after practice officially ends, to work on their skills. “It’s truly a pleasure for a coach when you get a team like this,” Pacifico said. “They’re struggling a bit on the court, but they’re young and they’re getting better every day. And, more important, it’s a great group of kids.” Notes … Although the Huskies did not qualify for the state tournament, several local teams did, and will be in action this week as they start their respective chases for sectional titles. In the North II Group III section, the Holmdel Hornets looked to bounce back from their SCT semifinal loss to Marlboro when they took on Emerson yesterday in a quarterfinal match. The Hornets are the third seed in this bracket, which is headed by Millburn and Livingston. The CBA Colts are the second seed in the Non-Public South A bracket, and as such, received a first-round matchup with St. John Vianney, a team that enjoyed tremendous success this season. CBA advanced with a 5-0 win, and now awaits the winner of the Monsignor Donovan-Bishop Ahr quarterfinal matchup, which was scheduled for yesterday. As for Vianney, they’ve come a long way from last year’s 0-14 team, and deserve all the credit in the world for turning around a program which has struggled to win a match in the past, much less qualify for the state tournament. The Raritan Rockets are the only other local team in the state playoff picture, as the seventh seed in the CJ Group II bracket. Raritan was scheduled to take on second-seeded Delran yesterday, with the winner to get either Rumson-Fair Haven (seeded third and the defending sectional champ) or A.L. Johnson.

There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Scientists have monitored deforestation for several decades using both on-the-ground and remote methods. Although clear-cut logging continues in earnest across the Amazon, deforestation rates in the Brazilian Amazon are lower than in the early 2000s. Degradation, on the other hand, remains a growing issue and historically has received less attention than forest loss.Measuring irregular losses in Amazon forest carbon stock is difficult. Selective logging targets valuable hardwood tree species such as ironwood and mahogany and typically removes several trees per hectare. Similarly, understory fires – caused by agricultural development, flammable debris leftover from logging, or careless disposal of cigarettes – may leave canopy foliage intact despite a charred underbelly. Modern-day satellite images cannot penetrate the forest canopy to record potential damage below, and isolated instances of degradation may not be visible at the 30-meter or higher resolution of standard satellite imagery. Surveillance by foot can more clearly identify degraded forests but is unfeasible for areas larger than a few hectares (or acres).In the last few decades, fortunately, a groundbreaking tool has managed to achieve both the fine resolution of ground inventory and the broad coverage of satellite data.LiDAR provides high-resolution, three-dimensional depictions of forestLight Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is a method of remote sensing that uses light waves to measure distances to a target (in this case the Earth’s surface and vegetation) from a transmitter. Lasers are fired, typically from an airplane, at up to 150,000 pulses per second and bounce back to a highly acute sensor located near the source of the lasers. The distance to the target is calculated from how long it takes for the lasers to return, and different spectrums of light can be fired in order to survey different materials or structural properties. Combining the calculated distances travelled by individual lasers, each to a different point of the target, with a highly precise GPS system results in an impressively accurate three-dimensional representation of the target structure.An airborne LiDAR system includes a GPS to provide the plane’s position, an Inertial Motion Unit (IMU) to record the aircraft’s altitude, and a laser that scans back and forth across the terrain below. The laser sends many thousands of light pulses toward Earth that bounce back to the scanner. The return time of the pulses represents the distances from the known height of the plane to the surfaces below. The distance data are used to generate information about the shape and structure of the area’s vegetation. Image by University of Texas Coastal Studies Group.The incorporation of LiDAR data allowed the study’s researchers to explore dimensions of forest loss that previously were hard to quantify. “With LiDAR, we are able to characterize the fine-scale changes in carbon density associated with degradation,” Rappaport said. “[Carbon losses from degradation] have been trickier to characterize than carbon losses from deforestation, which are less subtle in nature.”The high-resolution data LiDAR produces enable scientists to assess the variability in canopy height, a metric of forest ecological stability. Rappaport and her co-authors determined that degradation due to fire and logging resulted in persistent changes in forest canopy structure, habitat that is critical to arboreal organisms such as saki monkeys in Peru.LiDAR data’s remarkable precision does come at a cost that is prohibitively high for most research teams. Since the technology was only recently developed, historic LiDAR data are not available, so change over a long time series cannot be observed.Historic satellite data, such as from the Landsat series, come in great use. The Landsat satellites have been operating continuously for 46 years, and the two currently orbiting satellites, 7 and 8, in combination record freely available images of almost the entire globe in an eight-day cycle. Although the images do not have the spatial resolution of LiDAR [each Landsat pixel is 30 meters (98 feet) across], Landsat complements LiDAR with resolution across time.Intact rainforest canopy in the Amazon Image by Rhett A. Butler/MongabayLiDAR and satellite imagery can record forest structure across space and time, but determining a ratio of carbon per tree or hectare requires on-the-ground assessment of stored carbon. The researchers used tree species and size data from ground-based carbon inventories to estimate the amount of carbon the trees sequester. In combination, the three methods can be very powerful for measuring forest carbon stocks.“Our work to combine forest inventory measurements, airborne LiDAR, and Landsat time series serves as a blueprint for the synergistic use of multiple datasets to estimate carbon emissions from forest degradation,“ Rappaport said.Using this multifaceted approach, Rappaport and her colleagues estimated the loss of carbon due to forest degradation and the relative contributions by logging and fire. Their estimates of carbon loss due to fire were about three times higher than such estimates derived from field experiments or forest inventories in previous studies. Additionally, forests that experienced three or more recurrent fire events in 15 years or less were left with an average of 10 percent of the carbon stock found in the original forest stand.The researchers conclude that fire has the potential to release more carbon stocks than either selective logging or clear-cutting. And conditions may only get worse for the Amazon: projections of more frequent and intense droughts suggest hotter, bigger fires.Map of degraded and intact forest stands in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso, where researchers from University of Maryland and NASA recorded forest degradation from fire and logging via ground-based, satellite and LiDAR data. Forest appears green, deforested areas appear pink, and circles indicate the center of forest stands with LiDAR coverage (see key for color code; U—undisturbed; L—logged; LB—logged and burned; B—burned). Figure from Rappaport et al. (2018). Quantifying long-term changes in carbon stocks and forest structure from Amazon forest degradation. Environmental Research Letters, 13.Accurate carbon estimates can revise outdated baselinesAlthough high-resolution data from sources such as LiDAR can reveal somber findings, acquiring an accurate depiction of the full amount of carbon lost due to both deforestation and degradation is critical to understanding – and preventing – anthropogenic disturbance of forests.Rappaport recommends that their findings be used to update guidelines for monitoring carbon stocks present within intact and degraded forests, a key requirement for countries seeking performance-based payments from reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) programs.“By combining the emissions factors published in this study with [forest cover change] data from satellite observations, we will be able to verify the long-term role that Amazon forest degradation plays within regional carbon cycling,” she said. Rappaport added that they could also “establish emissions baselines necessary for supporting the implementation of REDD+.”Additionally, because their high-resolution methods revealed that forest carbon stocks vary by about two orders of magnitude, the authors recommend multiple classes of degraded forest under the REDD+ framework.Such baselines and classifications are critical to determining the readiness of a nation to begin a REDD+ program and to monitoring the amount of carbon stock retained. The United Nations and World Bank fund two of the most prominent REDD+ programs, and partner countries, including every Amazonian nation but Brazil and Venezuela, must regularly monitor and report forest carbon stocks. If the monitoring process does not capture the full amount of carbon lost due to forest degradation, participating nations may be given more credit than is deserved.A refined understanding of the drivers of forest degradation can also refocus preventative efforts. The World Bank and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) quickly deployed fire control projects in the aftermath of the massive El Niño drought across the Amazon in 1998. With the provision of additional mapping of forest damage due to fires, and with organizations such as Brazil’s National Institute of Space Research taking note, widespread preventative initiatives could be revitalized.Although some international policy currently lags behind cutting-edge forest monitoring capabilities, it would not be the first time that remote sensing data has induced policy change.Looking over the Amazon forest canopy at dawn. Image by Brazilian things, CC 4.0“[Brazil]’s advanced satellite-based monitoring system was a central agent in spurring increased law enforcement and responsive action against forest clearing,” Rappaport said. More widespread LiDAR coverage throughout the Amazon is on the horizon, and continued surveillance will likely stir up more attention, and policy change, in response to forest degradation and the serious impact of anthropogenic fires. “Remote sensing is uniquely poised to help drive and enforce policy change to stem deforestation and degradation.”CitationRappaport, D, I., Morton, D.

Its effects on the forest interior are often undetectable from satellite imagery. Images by Rhett A. Butler/Mongabay.   Forest degradation has historically been overlooked in accounting and monitoring carbon stocks.A recent study combined ground-based inventory, satellite and LiDAR data to record the loss of carbon due to forest degradation in areas exposed to logging, fire damage, or both, in the arc of deforestation of the southeastern Amazon.The study revealed that fire damage causes greater losses than logging, and fire-damaged forests recovered more slowly than logged forests.Accurate depictions of both deforestation and degradation are necessary to establish emissions baselines used to inform programs to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). The shrieking rip of a chainsaw and the muffled roar of fire: both of these sounds are associated with extensive destruction of Amazon rainforest. But is logging or human-caused fire a larger issue for the fate of the Amazon? And when such activities culminate in a partially degraded forest – rather than complete deforestation – is there much cause for alarm?A recent study published in Environmental Research Letters explored these questions. Using a combination of ground-based, satellite and LiDAR data, scientists from the University of Maryland and NASA recorded the loss of carbon due to forest degradation in areas exposed to logging, fire damage, or both, in 20,000 square kilometers (7,722 square miles) of the southeast Amazon’s “arc of deforestation,” a crescent-shaped strip of intensive forest conversion along the southern and eastern edges of the forest.The Amazon arc of deforestation stretches across the southern and eastern edges of the forest and is rapidly expanding into the forest’s core. Data in Global Forest Watch from Hansen et al (2013) and Brazil’s National Institute of Space Research (INPE) PRODES project.The researchers found that degraded forest stands contained an average of 45.1 percent of the amount of carbon stored in intact forest stands. They compared the impacts of fire and logging, the two most prominent drivers of loss of forest carbon stocks. Fires not only resulted in higher loss of stored carbon than logging, but fire-damaged forests also recovered more slowly than logged forests. Forests subjected to fire remained more impacted after 15 years than forests subjected to logging after the same duration, and neither type of forest recovered to pre-disturbance carbon density.“We combined [forest inventory, satellite and LiDAR data] within a modeling framework to predict how losses and recovery rates of carbon stocks/forest structure are driven by differences in the type, intensity, and frequency of human degradation,“ said the study’s lead author Danielle Rappaport, a doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland. “By providing the first comprehensive set of emissions factors for Amazon forest degradation, this work aims to help support the formal integration of degradation within carbon accounting systems, which have generally excluded degradation all together.”Forest degradation discrete, dangerousDegradation, unlike deforestation, is not absolute. Instead of a complete elimination of forest from the land, degradation is a more subtle process through which patches of forest, or even just individual trees, are lost. But the loss is still significant: 50,815 square kilometers (19,620 square miles) of forest in the Brazilian Amazon was degraded between 2000 and 2010, and emissions from degradation in the Amazon may be higher than those from deforestation. Additionally, the decreased structural complexity of degraded forests cannot support as much biodiversity as primary, undamaged forest.last_img read more

Transgender duo on $100,000 bail

first_img…after arguing inhumanity, cruelty of remanding themTwo commercial sex workers turned the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts into a fashion runway on Monday afternoon, expertly modelling their way out of the prisoners’ chute into the Police outpost while wearing shackles on their feet and hands.Akeem Pyle and Gabrielle Rowe were jointly charged and taken before city Magistrate Judy Latchman for allegedly robbing Anthony Amos of $30,000 on March 25, 2017 at South Road, Georgetown.Attorney-at-Law Paul Fung-A-Fat made three bail applications after the first and second was denied.During his bail application, the lawyer told the court that Pyle was a 24-year-old commercial dancer of Victoria Road, Plaisance, East Coast Demerara, while his co-defendant is a commercial sex worker, permanently residing in Alberttown, Georgetown.Fung-A-Fat pleaded with the Magistrate to grant his clients bail in a reasonable sum, deeming remand to be an inhumane and cruel act, as this would expose the duo to rape and abuse by inmates at the Camp Street Prison.Akeem PyleGabrielle RoweAccording to the prosecution, Pyle and Rowe entered a passing motor car in which the VC was a fellow passenger, and subsequently choked and robbed him. The accused individuals were then reportedly driven to Brickdam Police Station where they were charged with the present offence.Magistrate Latchman adjourned the hearing to 13:30h after she asked the Prosecutor whether any facility existed to accommodate the duo in their present state, which guaranteed them protection as well as those around them.Responding in the affirmative, the Prosecutor stated that the prison infirmary may be an ideal place in light of the situation, causing the Magistrate to leave the bench for a second time while enquiries were being made.A few minutes later, the Magistrate reentered the courtroom and was told of the available status of the prison infirmary, with the Prosecutor mentioning a “special place” at the Lusignan Prison as an alternative.An obviously disgusted Latchman deemed these places unfit for accommodation, declaring that she was not aware of any illness the two accused suffered as to cause them to be placed in an infirmary and she had no knowledge of a “special place” at the Lusignan Prison, leaving her with no choice but to release them on $100,000 bail each.The matter stands adjourned to April 10.last_img read more

Van Persie out for a month

first_img0Shares0000MANCHESTER, December 13 – Manchester United received another setback on Friday when manager David Moyes revealed that striker Robin van Persie will be out for a month with a thigh injury.The Dutchman recently returned from a four-game lay-off due to a groin problem, playing in last weekend’s 1-0 loss to Newcastle United and the midweek victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. However, he injured himself as he took the corner that led to Phil Jones’s 67th-minute winner against Shakhtar and Moyes expects him to be out of action until next year.“Robin Van Persie is out for a month,” Moyes said. “He picked up a thigh strain in taking a corner kick which led to the goal.”Moyes added: “It is unfortunate because I think if you look at our record with Wayne Rooney and Robin in the team, it is actually very good and we have not had them for quite a period recently.“Marouane Fellaini has a bit of a back injury. Michael Carrick is missing and Robin is going to miss four weeks with a thigh strain. That is a big blow to us.”United’s top scorer last season, Van Persie has scored seven goals in 11 league appearances this term.News of his injury comes as United bid to bounce back from successive home defeats in the league, which have left them 13 points behind leaders Arsenal.However, while Moyes has several alternatives in the forward positions — notably Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck — Carrick’s absence with an Achilles problem leaves him bereft of options in central midfield.Asked if he felt that Carrick’s lay-off had hurt United, Moyes replied: “I do. We need him for his creativity. We have missed him for lots of other reasons as well. It is important.“We were looking for a couple of midfield players in the summer. We weren’t able to get two. We got one (Fellaini).“We needed one who could give us something else if we did get an injury to Michael or one who could have played with him. We have definitely been a little bit short in that area.“Hopefully he is not too far away and he will be back in a couple of weeks.”Moyes, whose side visit Aston Villa on Sunday, also moved to quash suggestions that his predecessor Alex Ferguson remains a big influence at the club.Former United captain Roy Keane said on British television this week that he believes the former manager, who is now a director at Old Trafford, wants to control the club and still wields a lot of power.But Moyes refuted those suggestions, insisting that he is the one who gets in touch with Ferguson, rather than the other way round.“I can only tell you that in my time here Alex has been fantastic and helpful,” he said. “Anytime I need something, I can go to him. He’s been very good.”No team has ever come from 13 points back at this stage of the season to win the Premier League, but Moyes wants the players to use it as a source of motivation as they seek to close the gap on leaders Arsenal and the other teams who sit above them.“We do see it as a challenge,” he said. “We have a long way to go. We can only take one game at a time and let’s see what happens later on in the season. We can’t talk about it now. We will do when we are closer.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img– Harriet Jones Northridge Christian-intolerant Re “L.A. County seal has its day in court” (Oct. 18): It is interesting that the state makes an issue over the cross on the county seal because of religion, but isn’t saying anything over the fish, which is also a religious symbol in Christianity, or the cow, which is a symbol to the Hindu religion, or even the central figure on the seal, which is a goddess to the ancient Greeks. How hypocritical is this? Not to mention that this is true “intolerance” toward Christianity, which this nation was founded upon, but the government denies. – Jonathan Reynolds Reseda Video-game skills Re “Video games aid job seekers” (Oct. 18): It was a refreshing expos on how education can be improved. And, the great news is that these technologies and game formats are in schools throughout the world. Programs like Scholastic’s FASTT Math, READ 180 and ReadAbout are helping children gain and maintain critical math and literacy skills. Students are motivated with games and rewards, and are very willing to put forth Herculean effort. The efficiency with which they learn and practice important skills is revolutionary. And we all reap the benefits with students who are competent and performing on grade level. Companies like Scholastic Education are to be commended for their vision and enterprise in improving teaching and learning. – Colleen Driscoll Solomon Tujunga Blaming alcohol When are alcoholics going to take responsibility for their actions? And when are people going to stop blaming alcohol for their bad actions? It’s the cop-out: Find a way to blame something else rather than themselves. Foley blames alcohol for his pedophilia; Gibson blames alcohol and what he terms unfair criticism of his “The Passion of the Christ” for his ranting against Jews. Do these people really expect these lame excuses for their unacceptable behavior to register with people watching their self-indulgent, thoughtless actions? Evidentially so, or at least their spin doctors hope some of it might stick. – Claudia Reame Valley Glen Looking at the plot Re “Don’t waste another day on LAUSD fight” (Their Opinions, Oct. 16): At present, the school board fulfilled a task that was its obligation – to select a new superintendent – and it did just that. Our mayor and his longtime crony (Assembly) Speaker Fabian Nu¤ez are acting like petulant children. When we look at this plot for the mayor to have a leadership role in the school district, some of us wonder what his ultimate goals are. Maybe the pollution of Santa Monica Bay or the California highway system or a million more trees. They see and state the problems of our school district, but the answers are still over the horizon. The mayor’s job is pretty well defined and the LAUSD is a completely separate entity. The people of our city had no say in this political maneuver. Let’s see how it goes after Jan. 1, 2007. – Ira Kaplan Woodland Hills Majority tyranny It seems virtually certain that Proposition 86 will pass in November. It is a good example of the “tyranny of the majority” that our Founding Fathers worried about. The initiative process is the ideal vehicle for the majority to tyrannize minorities. “It is of great importance in a republic not only to guard the society against the oppression of its rulers but to guard one part of the society against the injustice of the other part. If a majority be united by a common interest, the rights of the minority will be insecure.” – Federalist Papers, No. 51. – John Aherne Panorama City Not up to winning As much as I dislike the thought of another Arnold term as governor, I am afraid that is what we will be facing. The reason? Phil Angelides does not have what it takes to win this election. It is too bad that Democrats did not see the light when there was a much better candidate in Steve Westly, since he not only has his own money, he is a stronger personality. Perhaps if his family had been in the spotlight, there would have been a different outcome. He was also more in line with current issues such as abortion, environmental matters, etc. – Lynette Grismore Arleta Sucking us dry I am sick and tired of Democrats and liberals constantly demanding more money from us in the form of bond issues in almost every election year. It seems that they and others (politicians) think by throwing money at a problem, it will simply be corrected and fixed. Our city and county governments are sitting on billions of our tax dollars already and they want even more from us. Why do they continually keep throwing bond issues out to the public in an attempt to circumvent Proposition 13 that was passed so many years ago when the public revolted against our politicians and their inability to spend wisely? I think it is time again to revolt. We need to put forth a proposition that would forbid any further bond issues for five years … That is one I am sure would pass. – Joseph Dillon Chatsworth Protecting us? I wrote to my congressman, Brad Sherman, and asked why he and most Democrats voted against the Federal Election Integrity Act, which requires voters to show a photo identity card to vote in a federal election. In addition, I asked why he voted against The Secure Fence Act, the Illegal Immigration Law Enforcement Act and the Community Protection Act, which were established to protect our citizens. It seems to me that the main responsibility of our elected officials is to do everything necessary to protect us from terrorist and criminal activity and to make sure that only citizens vote in our elections. It’s been over two weeks and he hasn’t answered my questions. – Bill Zelenka Granada Hills Andy Rooney moment I am having an Andy Rooney moment: Have you ever noticed how all politicians, like our governor, are so busy all of a sudden, signing everything put in front of them? You think it’s because voting time is near? And do you wonder why L.A.’s mayor is doing all of those photo ops and traveling all over instead of playing mayor, that he’s building up to run for something else, and didn’t really want to be mayor? And how the borders are wide open and no one is doing anything about it, saying there’s plenty of room in the U.S.? How many more people can we hold? – Joan Olear Burbank160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Re “L.A. meets schools chief” (Oct. 13): I have a great idea! Why don’t we get an educator who has actually taught in the classroom to head our schools? Of course, that’s too simple. I think we need a new school board while we are at it. For a school district that used to lead the country and has been in so much peril for so many years, it makes too much sense for those in charge to try to figure out we need an educator to lead. It’s just another reason for people to send their children to private schools. – Kathy Dudley Northridge A little respect Re “LAUSD’s Brewer enlists community help in Valley visit” (Oct. 18): I agree with David Brewer, our new superintendent for the school district, that we need to get the parents involved. I like his thinking, but I will also go a step further and try to instill in students to have respect for themselves, and they will in turn have respect for others. We should possibly have signs plastered around, saying “respect thyself.” With this, we may not have so many drive-by shootings, etc. last_img read more

Kevin Rose Apologizes for Sexist Joke on Diggnation

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#web Digg founder Kevin Rose issued an apology this morning for statements he made on the latest edition of his video podcast Diggnation. Just after the 4 minute mark in the show Rose and co-host Alex Albrecht were making jokes about men getting into physical fights with women and Rose made a statement that a particular act of violence was appropriate as an act of retribution in some circumstances.An excerpted transcript and the text of Rose’s apology sent to us by email when we inquired this morning are below.Rose said the following on Diggnation:“there is only one time you can strike [a woman -] if she kicks you in the balls, you have the ability and the right, to punch her in the teat – it’s just like that – it’s kinda like tit for tat [Albrecht talks then Kevin again] It hurts them, it does too – or take a scissors to the teat” (Kevin makes cutting action with hand)The part of the statement about cutting was offensive, juvenile and inappropriate, even in jest. It’s sadistic and the double standard that society applies should be clear: if a woman went on Diggnation and talked about how it’s ok to cut men’s genitals with scissors that would be a very big deal to a lot of people. It was also ironic given that Digg and Rose in particular had banned a number of Digg users last month for making offensive, sexist comments on a Digg post about an article in FastCompany by Saabira Chaudhuri about women in technology.Rose sent the following reply this morning in response to our inquiry about the incident.“I’d like to apologize for some comments I made in the latest episode of Diggnation, which came off as insensitive on the topic of violence towards women. Alex and I have always viewed Diggnation as an outlet to push the limits in a comedic fashion. Obviously, violence against women is serious and something we don’t advocate in any way.”Why It’s Not OK to Say Things Like ThisWe’re glad Rose has publicly apologized for the inappropriate statement and hope that he’ll act as a good role model for the many young people who watch his show. Violence against women is endemic around the world and the kind of violence that Rose joked about goes beyond self-defense and enters into the realm of all-too-real tragedy for many people. Pop-culture humor making light of such violence contributes to a cultural climate in which some people mistakenly consider this type or related behavior acceptable. No one is perfect but when some lines are crossed it’s important to discuss why such statements are inappropriate. We hope that Rose and Digg can continue working to make Digg, and the increasingly large part of the world that it influences, a better place. Anyone who reads the comments on the site regularly knows that both Digg and the world we live in have a long way to go. Censorship isn’t necessarily the answer, but discussion, apologies when needed and not saying stupid things in the first place are probably big parts the best solution.

Spat over design of new Chinese telescope goes public

first_img Lu Feng By Yongming HuangAug. 11, 2017 , 12:13 PM China’s astronomers hope to leap from the 4-meter Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope to a new 12-meter telescope. Spat over design of new Chinese telescope goes public center_img A deep division among Chinese astronomers over the design of a proposed 12-meter telescope broke into public view this week as statements from competing camps went viral on social media.The dispute centers on whether to adopt a technically ambitious four-mirror design proposed by optical engineers or a conventional three-mirror option favored by astronomers. The stakes are high. It will be China’s largest optical telescope and serve as the workhorse observational facility for several generations.In a 4 August letter to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Jiansheng Chen, an astronomer at Peking University in Beijing, notes that currently the largest Chinese-built scopes are a 2.16-meter general purpose instrument and the 4-meter Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) that is dedicated to surveys. LAMOST “is not very successful,” he adds, noting that its performance doesn’t match that of the 2.5-meter Sloan Digital Sky Survey telescope at Apache Point Observatory in New Mexico. “You can imagine how much risk there is in leaping from this foundation to 12 meters!” Chen writes in the letter that was posted on WeChat, a popular Chinese social media platform.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) Chen miscalculates LAMOST’s aperture, counter Xiangqun Cui, the instrument’s chief engineer who is at Nanjing Institute of Astronomical Optics & Technology, and Dingqiang Su, an astronomer at Nanjing University, in a joint WeChat response posted 8 August. They write that in terms of its engineering, the aperture is equivalent to almost 8 meters, thus it wouldn’t be a great leap to 12.Chen, Cui, and Su are all prestigious CAS academicians, adding spice to the acrimonious exchange, which is just the latest skirmish in an ongoing battle.Cui and her colleagues are behind the four-mirror design, which has a primary plus three secondary mirrors and relies on what they call an SYZ optical system, named using the initials of three designers who pioneered the scheme on the 2.16-meter telescope. A team from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan has proposed a more conventional Ritchey-Chrétien design that has a primary plus two secondary mirrors. They claim this simpler approach provides better resolution in the central field of view, and “generally better scientific performance.”In April, an international committee convened by CAS’s Center for Astronomical Mega-Science, which is responsible for the project, reviewed the competing designs and recommended the three-mirror option. On 10 July, Cui organized her own review committee that picked the SYZ design as better. Cui’s panel “leaned toward one side,” Chen says. And one member says that the three-mirror design was not sufficiently presented, partly because no one from the Huazhong team was there. Cui and Su explain in their open letter that a member of their own group who knows it well introduced the Huazhong design. “Members were repeatedly reminded they could abstain from voting,” they write. One-third of the 21 committee members did abstain.Meanwhile, to date, more than 130 young astronomers have signed an open letter to the astronomical community urging that the recommendations of the international panel be respected.The fundamental disagreement, according to Chen, is “whether a large science project should be technically or scientifically oriented.” Cui and Su say the choice is between incorporating “rapidly developing new technologies” that ensure a long life for the facility, or “simply replicating a 10-meter telescope built 30 years ago.”This week, more than 800 astronomers are attending the annual meeting of the Chinese Astronomical Society in Xinjiang. The 12-meter telescope battle is not on the program. The society “doesn’t want to cause embarrassment,” says one attendee who adds there is sure to be “a lot of [discussion] in private.”last_img read more


first_imgAfghanistan then had some fine moves in the Indian half Afghanistan then had some fine moves in the Indian half and made some threatening crosses but the home side defence were able to clear them. But they were not to be denied in the 69th minute with Zubayr Amiri giving Afghanistan the lead. Faysals pass sneaked past Arnab Mondal and an overlapping Amiris left footer beat Gurpreet before crashing into the Indian net. India struck back immediately with Jeje bringing the scoreline on level terms in the 72nd minute. Narzary crossed the ball into the box which was headed by Chhetri. Jeje came behind Afghan defender Sayedh Hashemi and slotted the ball into the far corner of the net. Hashemi expected goalkeeper Azizi to come off his line and collect. Both players looking at each other in disbelief. India threatened to take the lead towards the end of the match but Afghan goalkeeper were upto the task to deny them. First, he tipped over Narayan Das long range effort in the 84th minute after the Indian player saw the goalkeeper off his line, and then saved Chhetris right footer from a free-kick. The match went into the extra time and talismanic captain Chhetri scored the winner. Chhetri got the better of Afghan defender Hashemi and he kept his balance intact before sending his low right-footed sliding shot into the corner of the net to the wild jubilation of the home crowd.

How to be kind to yourself as a freelancer when times get tough

first_imgChange it up: Attend a new networking event or check out a group you’ve been wanting to join. Being around others will help you get your mind off your troubles—and it may lead to a valuable new connection. Catch up on your marketing: If you find yourself with some free hours, why not work on all those marketing initiatives you have on your “to do” list? Things like social media, blogging, updating your web site and freelancer profiles…you get the idea. Take a “sanity” day: I know as a freelancer, we sometimes think of our needs last, always putting our clients first. But, there are times when we need to just take a day for ourselves. When you own your own business, you don’t have vacation or sick days—you just have to create them. Taking a day off can help you “re-set” and be ready to get out there again. Remind yourself nothing is a sure thing: Even if you had a full-time job, you can be laid off or fail to get assigned to the project you really want. So, don’t beat yourself up too much. Count your blessings: Even if you’re going through a low point, remember why you started freelancing in the first place. Intangibles like the freedom, the flexibility and the confidence it can bring. Are there times when it feels like the bad outweighs the good? Sure. But, don’t forget, there are plenty of perks that come from working for yourself. Freelancing is a great way of life, but we all have our down days. Just be prepared to ride it out and wait for the sun that always comes after the storm.This is a post from a member of the Freelancers Union community. If you’re interested in sharing your expertise, your story, or some advice you think will help a fellow freelancer out, feel free to send your blog post to us here. Get your support system ready: Build yourself a support network of other friends/colleagues who can help lift your spirits when things don’t go your way (and inevitably, this will happen). Treat yourself: Even if it’s just your favorite coffee or a long walk, be kind to yourself—treat yourself to something you really enjoy. That will certainly help you feel a little better and make it easier to push on. As a long-time consultant, I’ve learned a lot of lessons such as:Hire an accountant.Set up a designated office space, if you work at home.Working in your PJs IS all it’s cracked up to be.But, one not-so-fun lesson I continue to learn over and over again is: Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.I remember when I started my freelance PR and writing business, my biggest fear was not finding enough work. Well, that didn’t happen right away… but over the years, there have definitely been times of feast and famine.So, what do I mean about the chickens? As a freelance consultant, I work with many different clients. Sometimes, they’ll say things like:“Wow, this new year is going to bring a lot of opportunities our way and we can’t wait to work with you on many of them.”Or:“We’re writing a marketing plan for client X and a big piece of that is PR.”So, you think, “Cool, this is going to be my biggest year ever!” But then, none of it comes to pass. This is a hard lesson, because you want to have confidence that the work will be flowing steadily at all times. However, this isn’t always the case. And, when you make choices to turn down other work based on jobs you think are yours, this can be even worse.While as freelancers, we must make choices about which projects to accept — and some projects turn out to be a better fit than others — it’s especially tough when opportunities you banked on don’t pan out. And, if you make enough of the wrong choices when it comes to gigs, you may find yourself in a spot you don’t want to be in.So, if the worst happens and you counted on some projects that didn’t come to pass, then what? Well, you pick yourself and you go on. (After a pity party, of course — you’re allowed to feel sorry for yourself in this scenario. Maybe even grab a friend who can console you and tell you how awesome you are.) You go back to what you know has worked for you and you plow ahead, full force.I was recently talking with a younger consultant who was telling me about some of the ups and downs she’s been through in this first year of her solo business. As we chatted, it occurred to me that it doesn’t even matter how many years each of us has been in business because some of the challenges you face as a freelancer never change. You hope you learn lessons —but sometimes, things can still go south and what you counted on may not be how things actually turn out.Here are some tips I shared with my consultant friend—maybe they’ll help you, too, when the going gets tough:last_img read more

Vancouver Aquarium files civil claim suing city and park board over cetacean

first_imgVANCOUVER — The Vancouver Aquarium is suing the city and park board over the 2017 cetacean ban for breach of contract and claiming it lost millions of dollars in revenue.In May 2017 the Vancouver’s park board voted 6 to 1 to approve a bylaw banning whales, dolphins and porpoises in captivity.The bylaw went into effect immediately, preventing the Vancouver Aquarium from bringing new cetaceans to its facility in Stanley Park.In the civil claim filed May 14, the Vancouver Aquarium states attendance has dropped in the last two years, adding the bylaw has interfered with the aquarium’s “ability to carry out day-to-day administration” of the Marine Science Centre.“Compared to 2016, attendance at the Marine Science Centre in both 2017 and 2018 has declined by approximately 13 per cent,” the aquarium says in the claim.“Based on 2016 admission rates, this decline in attendance equates to a loss of approximately $4 million in revenues for each of 2017 and 2018.”  The Vancouver Aquarium has one senior-aged Pacific white-sided dolphin named Helen that the park board continues to support.“She was rescued from fishing nets many years ago, and has no pectoral fins as a result,” says a spokesperson for the aquarium.A B.C. Supreme Court judge had agreed with the aquarium’s attempt to quash the park board bylaw and declared it void. But that ruling was overturned in February by a panel of three Appeal Court judges, who sent the matter back to the B.C. Supreme Court.The Vancouver Aquarium says as the matter is currently before the B.C. Supreme Court, it is not in a position to provide additional details on the lawsuit.For more than five decades, cetaceans have been a central feature of the aquarium and its efforts to engage the public, the lawsuit says.In January 1999 the aquarium housed five belugas, one killer whale and one Pacific white-sided dolphin, it says.By September 2011 the aquarium had four belugas, three pacific white-sided dolphins and one harbour porpoise, the claim reads.In the early 2000s, it says the aquarium began planning a three-phase, $100-million expansion of the Marine Science Centre. It says the first phase included improvement of “facilities and systems” for cetaceans costing more than $2.75 million, while the second phase included expansion of habitats for cetaceans including the Canada’s Arctic exhibit.Over the last two years the lawsuit says the aquarium wrote off $2.2 million in design and consulting costs for the new Canada’s Arctic habitat for cetaceans, and lost a “major private donation” equal to $7.5 million which was in support of the habitat. The lawsuit says the aquarium also revised its plans for the second phase of the expansion project.The aquarium had announced in February 2017 that it would phase out its cetacean program by 2029. But it intended on bringing in five more belugas in the interim once it opened its Canada’s Arctic exhibit.“The ability to control the day-to-day administration of the Marine Science Centre — including the choice of what aquatic animals to bring into or display at the Marine Science Centre — is crucially linked to the Vancouver Aquarium’s fiscal sustainability,” the lawsuit says.  The lawsuit says since 1995 the aquarium has owned and operated the Marine Science Centre in Stanley Park under a series of licence agreements with the city, represented by the park board.The aquarium pays two licence fees, it says. This includes a fixed fee of $150,000 which is to be increased by $25,000 after every five years, and a monthly amount based on a percentage of gross revenues from retail food and beverage sales, it says.“Despite the changes to its permitted uses under the license agreement, the Vancouver Aquarium has continued to pay combined annual licence fees to the park board and the city in excess of $290,000,” the lawsuit says.A statement from the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation says it has received a claim for damages in response to the 2017 amendment of the bylaw to restrict the importation and keeping of cetaceans at the Vancouver Aquarium.“The Park Board is reviewing the claim with legal counsel and considering its options going forward. The Park Board will have no further comment while this matter is before the courts,” the statement says.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN solemnly marks International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian People

The United Nations today solemnly marked the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People amid widespread calls for efforts to achieve a two-State solution to the Middle East conflict. “This Day of Solidarity is a day of mourning and a day of grief,” Secretary-General Kofi Annan told a commemorative meeting in a message delivered on his behalf by Chef de Cabinet S. Iqbal Riza. Deploring the situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, he noted that the human and material losses suffered by the Palestinians over the past two years have been “nothing short of catastrophic.” The Secretary-General pointed out that Israel’s “excessive and disproportionate” use of force only serves to intensify rage, desperation and a desire for revenge. At the same time, “cruel and devastating” terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians, including suicide bombings, have claimed large numbers of innocent lives while setting back the Palestinian cause. “The result of these actions has been the near-total destruction of the belief on either side that there is genuine partner for a just peace,” he observed. Despite this grim picture, Mr. Annan underscored the importance of efforts to tackle the problem by achieving a two-State solution. Members of the diplomatic Quartet – the UN, United States, European Union and Russian Federation – have been working with the parties on a road map to achieve a final settlement within three years. “With the intensified efforts of all of us, the day will come sooner rather than later, when the Palestinian people will be finally able to enjoy their inalienable rights, including the right to self-determination and to a sovereign State called Palestine,” he said. Also addressing the meeting, General Assembly President Jan Kavan of the Czech Republic called for the prompt resumption of Israeli-Palestinian political negotiations. He noted that the international community has come out strongly against the extrajudicial assassinations of suspected Palestinian militants, and against terrorist acts of Palestinian extremists. The anguish, frustration and anger of the Palestinians is understandable, the President said, but tactics of terror and suicide bombing are counterproductive. The recent terrorist attack in Mombasa “will be justifiably condemned the world over but the Palestinian cause will not be advanced a single inch forward – just the contrary,” he said. Mr. Kavan stressed that the UN should continue to maintain a permanent responsibility towards the question of Palestine until two independent States – Israel and Palestine –live in peace side by side within secure, recognized and respected borders. The Chairman of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, Papa Louis Fall of Senegal, said the root cause of the prevailing violence remains the occupation of Palestinian territory by Israel and its perpetuation of illegal actions, including curfews, arrests, detentions, the demolition of houses, the devastation of farmlands, the deliberate pursuit of the settlements policy and extrajudicial executions. Noting efforts by the Quartet to develop a plan for a sovereign Palestinian State by 2005, he called on the leaders of the two parties, and the wider international community, to take bold and difficult decisions to achieve this end. read more

Rick Snyder accepted the resignation of Department of Environmental Quality Director Dan Wyant and apologized for what occurred in Flint, which switched its drinking water supply in a cost-cutting move while under state financial management. Communications director Brad Wurfel also resigned, and Snyder said he plans additional personnel changes in the agency.Wyant quit the same day a task force appointed by the Republican governor reported that the department was primarily responsible for the fiasco because it did not require Flint to keep corrosive water from leaching lead from service pipes into residents’ homes and belittled concerns from the public. Exposure to lead can cause behaviour problems and learning disabilities in children.“I want the Flint community to know how very sorry I am that this has happened,” Snyder said in a written statement. “And I want all Michigan citizens to know that we will learn from this experience, because Flint is not the only city that has an aging infrastructure.”The five-member task force, which previously brought up concerns about a lack of organization in responding to the disaster, said the environmental department’s Office of Drinking Water and Municipal Assistance has a “minimalist approach” to regulatory oversight in which “technical compliance” is sufficient. It faulted the agency for a “tone of scorn and derision” toward the public, including outside water and health experts who raised alarm bells.The task force confirmed that the state did not follow the federal Lead and Copper Rule when Flint disconnected from Detroit’s water system in April 2014 and switched to Flint River water while waiting to connect to a new regional water authority.Detroit’s water from Lake Huron had been treated for corrosion. State officials thought that after Flint made the transition to the river it could test the new water for lead over two six-month intervals to determine potential corrosion treatment instead of needing to immediately add corrosion controls. Flint returned to Detroit’s water in October after a public health emergency was declared.The task force, which met with Wyant on Dec. 16, noted his substantial agreement with many of its conclusions but expressed disappointment with his “weak defence” regarding the federal rule.The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said in a November memo that there are “differing possible interpretations” of the Lead and Copper Rule, explaining that it does not explicitly discuss a scenario like in Flint.But task force members said, “Individuals and agencies responsible must be held accountable in a timely fashion.”They also cited recent revelations of the Department of Health and Human Services’ apparent early knowledge of and silence about elevated blood-lead levels, and said the committee’s final report in early 2016 would review local governments’ decision processes while under emergency management.“I know many Flint citizens are angry and want more than an apology. That’s why I’m taking the actions today to ensure a culture of openness and trust,” Snyder said.Wyant, 56, led the Environmental Quality Department for nearly five years. He previously served as the state’s agricultural director under Republican Gov. John Engler and Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm.“If these personnel moves and change in tone lead to a more aggressive response and resources to improve public health, then we are finally making progress,” said Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich, a Democrat from Flint.___Follow David Eggert at .

Florida outlasts West Virginia in Jimmy V Classic 6656

NEW YORK — Kevaughn Allen scored a game-high 19 points to lead Florida to a 66-56 win over West Virginia in the second game of the Jimmy V Classic Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.Even though Allen was the only Gator to finish in double-figure scoring as Florida won its third game in its last five starts and improved to 5-3 overall.The loss snapped West Virginia’s four-game winning streak. The Mountaineers fell to 5-3. Chase Harler led West Virginia with 11 points.Despite being outscored 14-4 in the final 7:25 of the first half, Florida went into halftime with a 30-27 lead. The Gators never trailed until Logan Routt drove the lane for a one-handed dunk with 16:39 left in the second half.Florida responded with a 14-2 run in a span of 5:57 to turn a 31-30 deficit to a 44-33 lead. Keyontae Johnson’s driving baseline two-handed jam and Andrew Nembhard ‘s 3 on consecutive possessions highlighted the run and forced Bob Huggins to call a timeout.The stoppage did not slow the Gators and when play resumed Allen drilled a straightaway 3 and Deaundrae Ballard made a free throw to extend the lead to 15.Florida would lead by as many as 16 after Locke made two free throws with 5:15 left. The Gators would make 11 free throws in the final 2:24 to close out the game.BIG PICTURE:FLORIDA: The known is Florida’s defence. Entering Tuesday night’s nationally televised game the Gators ranked second in the SEC in points allowed (62.4 points per game) and third in steals (9.0 per game). The unknown was how potent they could be offensively. Even though the Gators were averaging 71.7 points per game, that number is somewhat misleading due to a 98-point outing against North Florida on Nov. 27. In their remaining six games, however, Florida has averaged just 67.3 points.WEST VIRGINIA: ‘Live by the 3, die by the 3,’ is not the Mountaineers’ motto for the 2018-19 season, but it might as well be. In West Virginia’s five wins prior to Tuesday night it shot 38.2 per cent from behind the arc, but only connected on 29.3 per cent in its two losses. Against Florida, the Mountaineers missed 16 of 23 from 3.UP NEXT:FLORIDA: Hosts No. 10 Michigan State Saturday.WEST VIRGINIA: Hosts Pittsburgh Saturday.___More AP college basketball: and P.

Barrett leads No 3 Duke past Hartford 8454

DURHAM, N.C. — Freshman RJ Barrett had 27 points and a season-best 15 rebounds, and No. 3 Duke pulled away to rout Hartford 84-54 on Wednesday night.Zion Williamson added 18 points and 12 rebounds, and Tre Jones and Javin Delaurier finished with 10 points apiece to help the Blue Devils (8-1) win their third straight. Duke shot 62 per cent in the second half to more than make up for hitting just five 3-pointers — matching a season low.J.R. Lynch scored 13 points and Jason Dunne added 12 for Hartford (3-7), a 38-point underdog that hung around well into the second half before fading. Dunne’s long 3-pointer pulled the Hawks within eight points with just over 12 minutes left.Williamson then hit two free throws, Jack White followed with a steal and dunk and Cameron Reddish — who had missed all six of his 3-pointers to that point — buried a 3 in transition to give the Blue Devils their largest lead to that point at 54-39. Duke rolled from there for its fifth blowout in five home games.BIG PICTUREHartford: There was plenty for the Hawks to build on in this one, and they acquitted themselves much better than their No. 215 Pomeroy ranking — or the final score — might indicate. Their zone defence flummoxed the Blue Devils on the perimeter and their hustle kept them in the game for roughly 30 minutes.Duke: The margin of victory would indicate otherwise, but for much of this one, very little came easy for the Blue Devils — four nights after everything seemed that way in a 64-point rout of Stetson. It’ll look like a blowout in the box score, but coach Mike Krzyzewski will no doubt find plenty of teachable moments during the film review.UP NEXTHartford: At Bryant on Dec. 12.Duke: Hosts Yale on Saturday.___More AP college basketball: and McCreary, The Associated Press read more

Grande Bretagne Facebook évoqué dans un tiers des divorces

first_imgGrande Bretagne : Facebook évoqué dans un tiers des divorces !Facebook serait-il devenu un accélérateur de divorces ? Le réseau social est en tout cas évoqué dans de nombreuses procédures de séparations, au Royaume-Uni notamment, où le site de Mark Zuckerberg serait cité comme témoin dans 33% des dossiers de divorces.Facebook semble jouer un rôle important dans la séparation des couples. Le réseau social de Mark Zuckerberg est présenté comme un accélérateur de divorces par le blog Divorce Online, qui affirme que dans 33% des procédures de séparations au Royaume-Uni, le nom de Facebook est cité comme “témoin”.À lire aussi”Trash Tag Challenge” : le défi utile qui incite Twitter et Instagram à nettoyer la planèteUne estimation basée sur l’étude de 5.000 dossiers de divorces, qui annonce un chiffre en augmentation de 13% en deux ans seulement. A l’origine de ces séparations ? “Des messages inappropriés aux personnes de sexes opposés, un ex-conjoint qui poste des commentaires désagréables sur l’autre ou encore des messages d’amis décrivant le comportement inadapté de son ancien compagnon”, explique le blog. Principal rival de Facebook, Twitter n’est, quant à lui, cité que dans une vingtaine des 5.000 procédures de divorces étudiées. Dans la majorité des cas, des critiques à l’encontre de l’ex-femme ou de l’ex-mari sont évoquées.Pour Mark Keenan, un porte-parole de Divorce Online, ce phénomène est avant tout le signe de la banalisation des réseaux sociaux et de l’usage insuffisamment contrôlé qu’en font les internautes. “Les gens doivent faire attention à ce que ce qu’ils écrivent sur leur mur ne soit pas visibles par les tribunaux, qui peuvent utiliser ces messages comme preuves dans des conflits financiers ou de gardes d’enfants” souligne-t-il.

Amazon’s New Facial Recognition Smells Your Fear

first_imgStay on target We hope you had a good Prime Day because it’s getting pretty tough to be jazzed about a fake holiday created solely to benefit a company as increasingly dystopian as Amazon. From employee exploitation to brutal crackdowns of unions that fight back, maybe it’s not so great that famous divorced dad Jeff Bezos has more money than god, a stranglehold on modern retail, and a major newspaper to boot.There are plenty of ways for Amazon to soften its image, even without really changing its behavior. But a great way to creep everyone out even more is proudly talk about your new fear detection tech.Amazon Rekognition is the company’s controversial face detection and analysis technology. The name alone sounds like it comes from a Paul Verhoeven movie. Since its launch in 2016, critics have decried the potential racial biases of the “objective” invasive software, which is especially dangerous if its profiling functionality is being used by the police, a group known for sensitivity towards marginalized groups.But despite this, Amazon Rekognition is still a thing. And Amazon just announced the ways in which it is now even more accurate. The big new feature is detecting certain facial emotions in videos. Amazon can now determine if you are happy, sad, angry, surprised, disgusted, calm, and confused. If I know Amazon is profiling my face, I’m already pretty sure which of these emotions I’ll be feeling. Rekognition also now does a better job at estimating gender and age range.If you’re still skeptical about the rise of facial recognition software you aren’t alone. London police’s facial recognition system has an 81 percent error rate and the recent Facial Recognition Privacy Act aims to protect your ID. But as this tech spread, even coming into our schools, we have to make sure responsible groups are in charge. Amazon isn’t one of those groups. If you could see my face now, you’d see it’s sad.

If it’s not possible it’s not possible. If it is possible, good for us, if it’s not possible, we’ll keep working hard and believing in the players we’re at the club at this moment.”Matteo Darmian has revealed his intentions to leave the club this summer with Napoli interested in his services whilst Anthony Martial has told Jose he wants out of United with Chelsea and Dortmund rumored to be interested in his services.Manchester United begin their Premier League campaign with a home clash against Leicester City on August 10 at Old Trafford.last_img read more

STB Addresses Competitive Switching Other Rail Oversight Issues

first_imgLast week the Surface Transportation Board (STB) proposed new regulations regarding competitive switching on railroads, which if adopted would give shippers who are served by only one major railroad the option to seek competing bids for access to a second Class I railroad nearby without facing hefty fees.Railroads play an important role in moving soy products in the U.S.The Proposed Rule responds to a petition for rulemaking submitted by the National Industrial Transportation League (NITL) in July of 2011. The STB initiated a proceeding (EP-711) to consider NITL’s proposal, and received public comments.  In March 2014, the STB held a two-day public hearing to receive live testimony from stakeholders. The STB is now granting, in-part, the NITL’s petition for new regulations and setting out proposed regulations for comments, which are due on September 26th. The American Soybean Association (ASA) will be working with agricultural industry partners to analyze the Proposed Rule and potentially submit joint comments.In addition to the Proposed Rule on competitive switching, the STB is working on separate action to expedite consideration of rail rate dispute cases and implementation of the STB reform and reauthorization bill enacted by Congress.This week, the Senate Commerce Committee is holding a field hearing on rail shipper issues in Sioux Falls, S.D. that will focus on implementation of the STB reform and reauthorization bill. STB Board Members Dan Elliot and Deb Miller and a representative of CHS, on behalf of The Fertilizer Institute, will testify at the hearing.last_img read more

Warbug Pincus others eye stake in Catholic Syrian Bank Report

first_imgA bank staff member hands Indian 500 rupee notes to a customer on November 24, 2016, in the wake of the demonetisation of old 500 and 1000 rupee notes in Mumbai (representational image).INDRANIL MUKHERJEE/AFP/Getty ImagesThree months after talks for a stake sale to Canadian billionaire Prem Watsa-controlled Fairfax Holdings failed to materalise, other PE investors are eyeing a stake in Catholic Syrian Bank (CSB).”Yes, we are talking to a new set of investors. Hopefully, within a few weeks, we should be able to start exclusive dialogue with one of them,” the Economic Times (ET) quoted a person familiar with the development, as saying. Also read: Catholic Syrian Bank mulls IPO, again The daily referred to US private equity (PE) firm Warbug Pincus, InCred Finance and Aion Capital as interested to acquire a controlling stake in the Thrissur-based, 97-year-old bank.It may be recalled that talks between the bank and Fairfax Holdings for selling 51 percent stake to the latter were called off over differences in valuation. A Bloomberg report in May this year said that the bank’s share was valued at about Rs 165-200 apiece and Fairfax Financial was offered at a 15 percent premium to the price for acquiring controlling stake.The latest report of PE firms reportedly in talks with the bank to acquire a stake comes even as the Mint had reported last month that CSB was also planning an initial public offering (IPO).AION Capital Partners is a joint PE fund sponsored and run by Apollo Global Management India Advisors Private Limited and ICICI Venture Funds Management Company Ltd., according to the VCCircle.CSB was formed on November 26, 1920, and commenced business from January 1, 1921, with a paid-up capital of Rs 45,270. Currently, it has 430 branches and 240 ATMs in India.In the past few years, very few unlisted banks have approached the capital markets to raise funds, the most prominent being RBL Bank, apart from small finance banks such as AU Small Finance Bank. Another privately-held lender that was in the news in the recent past was Tuticorin-based Tamilnad Mercantile Bank (TMB).TMB issued bonus shares in the ratio of 500:1 (500 equity shares for every one Rs 10 share held) to its eligible shareholders, for which the record date was May 25, 2016.If that sounds unbelievable, here is more. TMB paid an interim dividend at the rate of 14,000 percent, or Rs 1,400 per equity share, for the financial year 2015-16, followed by a second interim dividend of 4 percent.In 2014-15, the bank paid Rs 1,600 per share as dividend in two instalments, same as in 2013-14.The bank was established by Nadars, a community in Tamil Nadu, as The Nadar Bank Ltd. in 1921 and was later renamed as Tamilnad Mercantile Bank on November 26, 1962.last_img read more

PhonePe acquires Zopper Retail to fight competition

first_imgRepresentational image for appsPixabayFlipkart’s digital payment subsidiary PhonePe announced the acquisition of Zopper Retail – a hyperlocal Point of Sale (POS) platform for small and medium businesses. This comes with the company’s strategy to aggressively ramp up its offline business and for making it a ubiquitous payment method for smartphone users. PhonePe, last year developed its own PoS device based on Bluetooth technology to process and boost its offline transactions.Zopper’s CEO Neeraj Jain has joined the team of PhonePe after the acquisition. 32 other employees of Zopper will also be joining the PhonePe team.To take on the rivals and grow in the market, Flipkart is providing PhonePe with the obligatory financial lift. In the month of March, 18′ PhonePe had received Rs 518.22 Crore ($80 million) in a fresh funding round from Singapore-based Flipkart Payments Pvt. Ltd.Sameer Nigam, CEO, PhonePe, said, “Zopper has a very strong technology and innovation DNA, and Neeraj and team are also a great culture fit for PhonePe. Zopper Retail is specifically designed to meet the needs of millions of small retailers in India, and their strategy ties in very well with our overall vision of making digital payments universally accepted across the country.”Earlier, Zopper Retail raised $20 million from investors like Blume Ventures, Tiger Global and Nirvana Ventures Advisors. Founded by Neeraj Jain and Surjendu Kuila in the year 2010, Zopper has hinged twice in the last eight years. In the year 2015, Zopper pivoted and split its business into two distinct divisions – Zopper Retail (a PoS platform for offline merchants) and (Zopper Assure) an extended warranty solutions unit for electronics purchased at offline outlets. However, after the acquisition of Zopper Retail, Zopper Assure will continue being led by Kuila.At present, Zopper claims to have a network of three lakh offline and online merchant outlets covering food, travel, groceries, movie tickets, etc.With this new acquisition, PhonePe will hope that it will help the firm in the intensely competitive payments platform segment. Paytm and Google’s Tez are amongst its biggest competitors in this segment. Last year, Flipkart committed to invest $500 Million in PhonePe to fight off the competition.last_img read more

Home minister requests students to end protest

first_imgAsaduzzaman Khan KamalAssuring the demonstrating students of taking proper actions to ensure road safety, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Wednesday urged them to end the ‘blockade’ and go back home.Also, a senior police officer asked his colleagues not to use force to disperse the young protesters, although he did not refer to assault of a few demonstrators allegedly by the law enforcers in the city on Tuesday.However, terming the students’ demonstration as logical, minister Kamal said, “We have noted the points raised by the students with sympathy. We are also sympathetic to families for the deaths of students. We are promising you that the logical demands raised by you would be met. We will ensure highest punishment to the culprits.”The home minister made the assurance at a press conference also attended by shipping minister Shajahan Khan, whose comments after the death of two students in road crash angered the students.Kamal also said no vehicle without license or route permit would be allowed to ply on the roads, from now on.When they held the briefing, hundreds of thousands of student protesters blocked Dhaka city’s major intersections for the fourth day Wednesday, disrupting traffic movement. They took to the streets after a bus ran over a dozen students killing two of them on the Airport Road on Sunday noon.Requesting the students to end their demonstration, the home minister pointed out that at least 309 vehicles were vandalised and eight more torched in the last three days.Despite calling the protest logical, he still alleged that ‘some vested quarters are trying to use it in favour of their own interests.At a meeting on Wednesday, Dhaka metropolitan police commssioner Asaduzzaman Mia described the situation as ‘anarchic’ and asked the policemen not to commit any excess. He directed them to control the situation by persuading the demonstrating students.Demonstrators alleged that the police on Tuesday beat up and fired bullets on students.A photo that shows a policeman trying to beat a girl student and another showing a policeman grabbing the collar a young student have gone viral.last_img read more

Rocket League devs have figured out PS4 and Xbox One crossplatform play

first_imgEarly last week, Microsoft announced that Xbox Live’s new cross-play feature would not only make it possible for Xbox One users to play with those on PC, but to also play with gamers on other online networks like Sony’s PlayStation Network. Naturally, this got many gamers excited as they might one day be able to play with their friends regardless of what platform they owned. Psyonix Studios, the developers behind the wildly successful Rocket League, were mentioned in the initial report as the first studio that would attemp cross-platform play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Both console iterations of Rocket League are already cross-play compatible with PC so it was just a matter of knocking down that final wall between PSN and XBL. This is something Psyonix says it has figured out.“Technologically everything works, we’ve got it figured out, just a little bit of time to get everything up and running,” said Psyonix vice president Jeremy Dunham in an interview with GameSpot. “Right now, excitement is the best way to put it. We just want to get in there and make it happen.” Though things are going well on the technological side, there is still the matter of getting Sony to sign off on cross-play with Xbox Live. Dunham said: “The only thing we have to do now is sort of find out where we stand politically with everyone, and then it’s full steam ahead to finish the solution that we’ve already started.”“We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play,” said Sony to GameSpot when asked about cross-platform play with Xbox Live. Though this statement seems optimistic on the surface, it doesn’t clearly indicate that the Tokyo-based company is 100 percent on board with cross-play with XBL just yet.Ultimately, it will be up to Sony to open up its network for cross-platform play to work. However, the fact that Psyonix has figured out how to make the two console networks play nice with one another is itself both impressive and promising. If Sony is on board with cross-play, and the process of making games playable across networks is relatively painless, this could signal the start of something many gamers have asked for since the advent of online play.last_img read more

especially demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax Written by Jahangir Aziz | Published: February 12 2016 12:11 am Related News Since August 2014 global oil prices have fallen 70 per cent in dollar and 65 per cent in rupee terms Imagine that the government had passed on the entire decline in global prices to consumers (after eliminating oil-related subsidies) instead of taxing most of it away What would this alternative world have looked like For starters diesel pump price would have been one-third lower at around Rs 30 a litre rather than Rs 45 Households’ real income would have been significantly higher and based on RBI estimates of the direct and indirect effects of oil price CPI inflation would have been nearly one percentage point lower Consistent with implicitly targeting real interest rates the RBI would have likely cut policy rates by one percentage point more Obviously there is no free lunch The FY16 budget is likely to gain about 05 per cent of the GDP from the extra excise taxes In the absence of this additional revenue if the government were to keep to its budget target it would have been compelled to privatise the full amount of the budgeted divestment raising 025 per cent more of the GDP in non-tax revenue and cut expenditure by another 025 per cent The net impact on the stock market and growth is ambiguous While the extra issuance would have exerted downward pressure on stock prices of the privatised assets the one percentage point additional policy rate cut would have buoyed the prices of other stocks The net effect on the overall index could have gone either way but chances are that the impact would have been modest Similarly while the 025 per cent of the GDP cut in public spending would have lowered overall GDP growth by about 033 percentage points consumer spending and corporate investment would have increased because of the higher real income wider profit margins and lower interest rates once again making the net impact on growth unclear But this is not the world we live in because the government chose to tax away most of the oil windfall What was gained Not much Fiscal management was much easier but it is uncertain whether growth was helped or even the stock market buffered much while both inflation and interest rates are likely higher This brings us to next year’s budget and let me focus on what in the last month or so has become a debated issue: Should the government keep to its promised deficit reduction path One can’t believe that we are debating this issue in 2016 given India’s fiscal history and memories of the near crisis in 2013 But be that as it may here are three reasons why the government needs to deliver on its FY16 budget promise to cut next year’s deficit by 05 per cent of the GDP First think how incredulous the alternative sounds: After breaking its commitment in FY16 and promising to go back to the deficit reduction path in FY17 the government should cite weak global growth to break that promise again but vow to do so from FY18 And the market the rating agencies and the public should believe this because global growth which has floundered for the last six years will miraculously recover next year or the added infrastructure spending this year will magically put India on a sustained and higher medium-term growth path Incredible as this sounds more troubling is the question that such a breach of commitment raises: If the government cannot cut the fiscal deficit when oil is at $30 a barrel when can it Such an action would seriously erode the credibility of any promised future path of consolidation Without an anchor for future deficits government bond yields would rise arbitrarily sharply As it has done many times before the RBI would likely come to the government’s rescue with large bond purchases (we have already seen this happen in recent months) This should limit the rise in yields temporarily but would leave the bond market vulnerable to a shock and take away the space for further cuts in banks’ SLR which is key to expanding the private sector’s access to bank credit and developing the domestic bond market Second we have tried this before with disastrous results In the aftermath of the global financial crisis the deficit was increased by 3 per cent of the GDP While one can debate the timing and efficacy of the stimulus by mid-2010 it was clear that it needed to be withdrawn urgently However despite double-digit growth runaway inflation and more than 1 per cent of the GDP in windfall revenue from the first 3G auction the deficit was cut at a glacial pace The continued high fiscal deficit and the rise in gold imports (India’s capital outflows) it triggered as households increasingly lost confidence in the government’s economic management pushed India’s current account deficit to 5 per cent of the GDP by early 2013 setting the stage for the near crisis later that year Third the idea that countercyclical fiscal support will help growth sits starkly at odds with reality By now it should be clear that the global slowdown is not temporary but long-term and structural; that the old manufacturing export-led growth model stands seriously fractured; that just like other emerging markets India’s 2003-08 growth miracle too was driven by corporate investment chasing manufacturing exports; and with global demand for manufacturing unlikely to recover anytime soon corporate investment in India isn’t turning around without a new sustainable source of demand to replace exports Creating an alternative sustainable source of demand requires radically rethinking the structure of public finances Strange as it may sound it requires less infrastructure and more spending on public health and education Only then will households’ astronomical out-of-pocket expenses on health and education be reduced lowering their high precautionary savings thereby boosting consumption on a sustained basis Without the visibility of sustained future demand corporates aren’t about to start investing as they haven’t despite FY16’s experiment with fiscal support And that’s what fiscal policy (along with structural and regulatory reforms) needs to achieve not just in FY17 but also over the medium term The budget needs to recognise and respond to the new reality not wish it away The writer is chief Asia economist JP Morgan

Karimganj district Taking part in the discussion Congress MLA Kamalakhya Dey Purkayastha said the fencing has been erected about 800-1500 metres inside the border resulting in many Indian villages

remains an unsolved mystery (Image for representation Source: NASA) Related News The elusive dark energy thought to make up 68 per cent of the universe may not exist at all scientists have claimed They believe that standard models of the universe fail to take account of its changing structure but that once this is done the need for dark energy disappears From the 1920s mapping the velocities of galaxies led scientists to conclude that the whole universe is expanding and that it began life as a vanishingly small point In the second half of the twentieth century astronomers found evidence for unseen ‘dark’ matter by observing that something extra was needed to explain the motion of stars within galaxies Dark matter is now thought to make up 27 per cent of the content of universe (in contrast ‘ordinary’ matter amounts to only five per cent) Observations of the explosions of white dwarf stars in binary systems in the 1990s led scientists to the conclusion that a third component dark energy made up 68 per cent of the cosmos and is responsible for driving an acceleration in the expansion of the universe In the new work researchers led by PhD student Gabor Racz of Eotvos Lorand University in Hungary question the existence of dark energy and suggest an alternative explanation They argue that conventional models of cosmology (the study of the origin and evolution of the universe) rely on approximations that ignore its structure and where matter is assumed to have a uniform density Also Read:Dark matter lost since birth of universe discovered In practice normal and dark matter fill the universe with a foam-like structure where galaxies are located on the thin walls between bubbles and are grouped into superclusters The insides of the bubbles are in contrast almost empty of both kinds of matter Using a computer simulation to model the effect of gravity on the distribution of millions of particles of dark matter scientists reconstructed the evolution of the universe Unlike conventional simulations with a smoothly expanding universe taking the structure into account led to a model where different regions expand at different rates The average expansion rate though is consistent with present observations which suggest an overall acceleration “Our findings rely on a mathematical conjecture which permits the differential expansion of space consistent with general relativity and they show how the formation of complex structures of matter affects the expansion” researchers said “These issues were previously swept under the rug but taking them into account can explain the acceleration without the need for dark energy” they said If this finding is upheld it could have a significant impact on models of the universe and the direction of research in

This by itself is no surprise Political success in India often depends on family ties of candidates At least two data setsindependently compiled by Patrick French and by ussuggest that dynastic ties are important in Indian politics Others have commented on the rise of the bahu-beti brigadesignalling that women with politically powerful husbandsfathersbrothers or in-laws are more likely to be taken seriously as electoral candidates There ishoweverwidespread criticism of dynastic politics and an obvious incongruity between the idea of democracy and dynastic parties We find that there is a representation deficit when it comes to dynastic parties In those areas where dynastic parties competevoters are far more likely to say that the politician (MLA or MP) does not look after the interests of anyone in the constituency It should come as no surprisethenthat dynastic politics is also associated with the vast number of political parties and electoral volatility that mark contemporary Indian elections Our research shows that in those states where the two main political parties are dynasticthere are greater vote swings for a party from one election to the otherwith the average vote swing reaching 7 per cent Secondwe find that independent candidates are more likely to be elected and win votes The percentage of independent candidates winning moves from 10 per cent under non-dynastic competition to 14 per cent under dynastic competition Finallythere is a proliferation of political partieswith the effective number of political parties moving from less than four to more than four In addition to voter discontentthere are other reasons for these effects In a dynastic party the top spot is limited to members of a family For ambitious politicians who want to rise to the top spot there is only one option to form their own political party or to switch allegiance to another party that will give them a higher position This leads to larger number of parties competing for votes and/ or greater vote swings We understand a dynastic party to be one where the top leadership comes from within one familyor the successor is appointed without an organisational election (like Mayawatis appointment by Kanshi Ram) In Indiathe number of dynastic parties is too large to list The Congress tops everyones list The highest leadership position has stayed within the Nehru-Gandhi familystarting with Nehru himself and flowing to Indira GandhiSanjay GandhiRajiv GandhiSonia Gandhi and possibly Rahul Gandhi Many regional parties are also dynastic: the Akali Dal in Punjab; Shiv Sena in Maharashtra; NCP of Maharashtra; the DMK in Tamil Nadu; the TDP of Andhra Pradesh; the BJD in Orissa; and the SP in UP So why do dynastic parties choose leaders from a particular family The simple answer is that there is nothing to stop these leaders from selecting their successors If a party has a party organisation where other contenders to the chief post can form their independent bases of power or lobby groups within the partyit may be harder to sustain dynastic parties This was the case with the Congress in the 1960s when a strong organisation could discipline the ruling Congress party The CPMa non-dynastic partyhas a massive cadre-based organisation Secondif a party has strong ties to a civil society organisation that constrains the party leader from appointing kin as successorthe party will be non-dynastic The classic case is the BJP The RSS (in which the BJP is societally rooted) exercises enough influence over the choice of leadership to ensure that it is non-dynastic Thirdand most importantis party finance As long as politicians raise their own campaign finances illegallytheir best insurance against disclosure is to keep the money in the family If all politicians in India raised funds independently and openly (as they do in the United States) individual politicians could challenge the party leadership In India this independence is discouraged and substantial campaign contributions are undisclosed or black and collected centrally This centralisation of finances is essential to avoid detection As many have observedthe bulk of the money for the 2009 election campaigns of various parties was allocated to Lok Sabha hopefuls by the central command This gives the central party enormous control and the party leader is influenced by incentives that encourage keeping it all in the family Our research shows that political dynasties are found where they provide risk insurance for politicians Even in stable political systems like Japandynasties are common As Fukui and Fukui observein the 1990 general elections170 second-generation members ran for election to the Diet and 125 were elected They attribute this to the electoral rules that led candidates to develop highly individualistic campaign organisations built by and for particular Diet members and aspirants and that since these organisations are expensive to buildin terms of both money and effort investedthese organisations are valuable assets that are closely guarded by the incumbents andupon their retirement or deathoften passed on to their heirsusually relatives or staffers?000 crore a year) hold the key to this puzzle.why can?

campaignhaving hit a dead-end at Mumbais MMRDA Grounds last Decembernow attempting to ride piggyback on the charismatic and controversial yoga guru whose empire has launched a thousand corruption charges and several notices by the Enforcement Directorate It was also about Team Anna being talked down to by Ramdev And about Anna himself taking that opportunity to the Baba Most of allJantar Mantar last Sunday was about Team Anna surrendering the last vestiges of the ambiguity and fuzziness that had proved to be its biggest strength in the early daysin exchange for a free ride on the giant Ramdev machine For all its self-righteousnessand despite the persistent strain of anti-politicsfrom the first fast at Jantar Mantar in April last year to the August mobilisation at the Ramlila

its audienceonly to be upstaged by it The secret of the Anna phenomenon was that the crowds had rendered him into a symbolic figure Team Anna crucially contributed to this by making a point of keeping itself above the party-political fray That made Symbol Anna seem more capaciousand more embracing of the diverse needs and projections of its audience With Ramdevon the other handthere has never been room for ambiguity There is nothing tantalising or open-ended about the Babas cocktail of yogaswadeshi and muscular nationalism with generous lashings of political Hindutva that last was evident even without BJP president Nitin Gadkari touching his feet You can either be alienated from Ramdevor become his follower and be minded by his well-resourced machine The difference was starkly framed in the

long after Anna had retired for the night and the lights had died out on stage There were other differencestoobetween Baba and Anna If Annas goal is to establish the omnibus anti-corruption LokpalBabas obsession is black money Ramdevs audience is mostly rural while Annas has been largely urban But the main differencetill recentlywas this: while Ramdev was the star of his own showthe

2016 12:03 am Field trials are the second vulnerable stage in the acquisition process Related News The scandal surrounding the procurement of 12 AW-101 VVIP helicopters from AgustaWestland is the latest in a long list of scandals in defence deals There is no question that the guilty must be punished Butit is equally important to ponder why these scandals keep breaking out in spite of a seemingly strong preventive mechanism being in place The Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) which regulates defence procurements requires every vendor to sign a pre-contract integrity pact (PCIP) designed to prevent the vendors from adopting unethical practices to win contracts and remain on course after winning them Share This Article Related Article Those who violate the pact can be slapped with sanctions ranging from the immediate calling off of the negotiations if the transgression is detected before the award of contract to the recovery of the bribe money forfeiture of bank guarantees and even blacklisting Every defence contractalso contains a clause that requires the vendor to declare that no agent had been employed and no agency commission paid tosecure the contract Breach of the clause invites punitive action The presumption underlying all these measures is that corruption in defence deals is almost entirely because of the shenanigans of middlemen and agents In the event all these measures are designed to deal withthe symptoms rather than the root causeof the malady The history of past transgressions shows that at least three stages in the acquisition cycle are potentially vulnerable to undueinfluence and manipulation by unscrupulous elements: Formulation of the services qualitative requirements (SQRs) field evaluation and contract negotiation The manner in which the SQRs — the specifications that the equipment tobe procured must meet — are drawn up could make or mar a vendor’s chances of winning a contract Non-compliance with even one of the several SQR parameters could result in rejection of a vendor’stechnical offer but conversely a minor tweaking of even one parameter could make the same vendor a frontrunner In the first round of tendering the

in the Request for Proposal (RFP) The tender was later cancelled because of lack of competition In the revised RFP issued in 2006 the altitude requirement was reduced to 4500 metres with a view to widening the vendor base and the cabin height of 18 metres was added to the specifications Such is the magic of SQRs that riding on the revised specifications AgustaWestland not only made the cut but eventually went on to win the contract Field trials are the second vulnerable stage in the acquisition process According to a Comptroller & Auditor General (CAG) report instead of the AW-101 helicopter which was offered for sale by AgustaWestland in response to the revised RFP the field (flight) trials were conducted on two other platforms as the AW-101 happened to be at the developmental stage at that point of time The contract negotiation is the third most vulnerable stage The contract negotiation committee (CNC) also negotiates the price with reference to a benchmark price arrived at just before the opening of the commercial offers Determination of the benchmark as indeed the entire process of costing is a weak link in the chain The CAG report on the VVIP helicopter deal points out that the benchmark adopted by the CNC was unreasonably high compared with the offered cost of the AW-101 VVIP helicopters as a result of which it cannot be said with certainty that the deal was struck at a reasonable price This observation does not appear to be too far-fetched The kickback in this deal allegedly involves 10 per cent of the contracted price AgustaWestland was obviously able to include this margin in the offered price and get away with it only because the offer must have appeared reasonable to the CNC with reference to the benchmark price Obviously something had gone wrong while fixing the benchmark because of which even the inflated price with a built-in margin for graft appeared reasonable It would be absolutely wrong to think that transgressions are rampant or to entertain any doubt about the integrity of the procurement officials But it would be naive to deny the possibility of middlemen exerting influence at these and possibly at some other vulnerable stages in the procurement process This is what needs to be fixed It is not that no efforts have been made in the past A policy on regulating the role of agents and authorised representatives was laid down by the ministry of defence in 1989 and revised in 2001 but apparently it never got implemented It was an impractical policy as it sought to micro-manage the role of agents and authorised representatives by going to the extent of saying that the amount of commission to be paid to them will have to be as per the ministry’s guidelines and recorded in the contract The guidelines also stipulated that the principals will be liable for any transgression by their agents The policy remained inoperative as the guidelines for regulating payment of commissions never got issued WATCH INDIAN EXPRESS VIDEOS HERE The problem is compounded by the lack of transparency and difficulty the vendors face in obtaining even legitimate information from the ministry No wonder then that the middlemen thrive as they are able to get not just the legitimate information but much more than that for their principals Information is power that comes at a cost which the vendors are prepared to pay Accessibility of officials and smooth flow of information to vendors will break this stranglehold At a conclave held in New Delhi in December 2014 the defence minister had said that the government was working on apolicy for regulating the activities of thedefence agents and probably also blacklisting of vendors Hopefully the much-awaitedunreleased portion of DPP 2016 will deliver on this
