After HC stay Mayawati says UP govt move to include 17 OBCs

first_imgLucknow: After the Allahabad High Court stayed the notification to include 17 Other Backward Castes in the SC list, BSP president Mayawati on Tuesday said such government decisions are “guided by total selfish political motives” but effects the entire society. She said the move was “most unfortunate”. “The news of the high court staying the forcible declaration of 17 OBCs as Scheduled Castes in Uttar Pradesh is naturally in limelight today. Such decisions guided by total selfish political motives do not affect any party/government but the entire society gets affected by it. Most unfortunate,” Mayawati tweeted in Hindi. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ Staying the notification on Monday, the high court directed the state government to file its reply in three weeks on a petition against its decision to declare 17 OBCs as SCs. The petition stated that the Constitution has empowered the Centre to make such amendments and include a particular community in the Scheduled Caste list. Hence, such a decision by a state government was in violation of Article 341 of the Constitution, it said. According to the petitioner, the Uttar Pradesh government issued a government order in June to include 17 communities of the OBC category into the SC list. Kahar, Kashyap, Kewat, Nishad, Bind, Bhar, Prajapati, Rajbhar, Batham, Gaur, Tura, Majhi, Mallah, Kumhar, Dheemar and Machua sub-castes were among the 17 OBC castes.last_img read more

Hundreds inspired by yellow vest movement rally in London

first_imgLONDON — Hundreds of protesters inspired by France’s yellow vest movement are rallying in Britain, drawing attention to government austerity programs that have hit the poor hard.Wearing yellow vests with slogans such as “Britain is Broken” written on the back, the demonstrators marched in London to demand that politicians pay attention to their plight rather than being endlessly diverted by the spectacle surrounding Britain’s departure from the European Union.They also want to show solidarity with French protesters who have staged weeks of nationwide anti-austerity protests.Some French protesters also joined the London march on Saturday.Erick Simon, 57, who travelled from the Normandy in France to the London rally, says “all European countries must join up in this battle against austerity.”The Associated Presslast_img read more

“China is one of the most powerful countries in the world. We are targetting more Chinese arrivals and we have enough of hotels which are prepared to cater to that market,” Amaratunga said.

Brock partners with Weengushk Film Institute for film program

A new partnership between Brock University and Weengushk Film Institute is opening doors for students studying on Manitoulin Island.Starting in September, Brock is offering a certificate in film production that will be taught at Weengushk.“A lot of the students may want to go on to university and this is a first entry point,” said Scott Henderson, chair of Brock’s Department of Communication, Pop Culture and Film “They’ll have credits under their belt.”The eight-month program provides training and instruction taught by industry professionals.“It’s a really hands-on program. You learn how to make short films from screenwriting all the way up to marketing,” said Weengushk senior manager Nano Debassige.He said students are introduced to the seven core aspects of filmmaking: screenwriting, producing, directing, cinematography, editing, composing and marketing. They work towards writing and directing a short film.Debassige said the affiliation with Brock is a great opportunity for students.“It opens another avenue to higher education for our students,” he said.Jill Brindle, chair of the Board of Directors at the Weengushk Film Institute, said the approach of the Lab 1 certificate film program is sensitive to the needs of individuals coming from under-served communities.Consideration for acceptance into the program is given to students who wish to explore artistic expression in the media arts, including those students who may not meet mainstream requirements or who may have gaps in their education, she said.“This certificate program is designed to help open doors for students, enabling them to pursue further university education, to develop themselves as artists, and bring applicable skills to the work force,” Brindle said.Part of the goal, Henderson said, is to introduce students from the North and indigenous students to university life.“For all first year students, the academic transition is tricky and for indigenous students, especially from the North, it’s also a tricky social situation,” he said, noting many indigenous youth live in small communities and Brock has a student body of over 18,000. “I see this as a bridge. It’s a chance to start getting those academic courses and credits and looking towards coming here. It creates a nice transition.”Debassige said Weengushk has a transition and support program that helps individuals coming from remote locations make that transition and adapt to urban living.Henderson said the program is an adaptation of the institute’s existing Lab 1: Short Film program. Completion of the program will earn students five Brock credits.“Importantly for these students, those who aspire to use this as a launching pad to a career, there’s lots of new production around Sudbury and in the North,” Henderson said. “This is a chance for students to get that production background.”Debassige agreed, noting students in the program work with industry professionals and the networking opportunities often result in work for students.Weengushk, founded by Shirley Cheechoo in 2002, is an artist-focused centre for capacity building in the media arts for both indigenous youth and persons of diversity.Henderson first learned about the institute several years ago at Cinéfest in Sudbury, when he met students who were training there. He was immediately impressed by their work and knowledge.When Cheechoo became the Chancellor of Brock University, Henderson approached her about creating an opportunity for students to train at the institute in a collaborative production environment.The film production certificate program and a spring film production course at Weengushk are the result.Cheechoo said through the Brock-Weengushk Lab 1 partnership, Brock is working towards recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.“Brock is being invited into the indigenous community,” she said. “I am very excited that we will be making history at Brock.”Nano Debassige, senior manager of Weengushk Film Institute, left, and Scott Henderson, chair of Brock University’s Department of Communication, Pop Culture and Film. read more

Former AG representing Ashni Singh in SOCU probe

Former President Dr Bharrat Jagdeo on Tuesday expressed hesitancy in supporting having the two men—both of whom are out of the jurisdiction—return to Guyana to be at the disposal of SOCU, since, according to Jagdeo, the body has become a political outfit.At the time, Jagdeo told media operatives at his Church Street Office, “the thing is, that these people can’t be there, put their whole lives on hold because SOCU one morning, every time the opposition criticizes the government, will get a call from (Attorney General) Basil Williams or (Public Security Minister Khemraj (Ramjattan) or (Public Health Minister) Volda Lawrence to go after Ashni Singh or Nandlall for that day.”According to the opposition leader, “That is how the SOCU is operating, they getting calls, regular calls from government (Minister).”He has in fact suggested that the Commissioner of Police has been sidelined from command of the unit that is supposed to be under his purview.“You hear ministers talking about who will get lock up, ministers have no line responsibility over SOCU…It comes through the Commissioner (of Police).”Jagdeo posited that the entire outfit is being used by the political directorate to pursue a witch-hunt.“It’s a pure witch hunt, SOCU has been converted into a PNC (Peoples National Congress) outfit to go after PPP officials, not drug dealers, not money launderers, not anyone else but to go after PPP people.”The Opposition Leader was adamant his PPP party will, “continue to oppose the witch hunt.”Meanwhile Jagdeo also used the occasion to throw his support behind, the former NICIL Executive Director, Brassington by pointing the questionable audit that was conducted by pro coalition supporter, Former Auditor General, Anand Goolsarran.According to the Former President, the witch hunt is simplypersisting and that the two identified victims for the weekend were Brassington and Dr Singh.He used the occasion to draw reference to a public missive by Brassington in light of the media reports, “where he (Brassington) pointed out that he had responded, paragraph by paragraph to Goolsarran’s audit, if we can call it an audit because it’s more like a propaganda document.”The former president suggested that an impartial editor would juxtapose Brassington’s response along with the actual audit findings presented by Goolsarran, “and then you will see how deficient his audit was.”Jagdeo observed that given the history of the audit and how it was handled in the public domain, “that would be the only fair thing to do.”The Opposition Leader reminded that the audit report was first leaked to the media before it was even turned over to the NICIL staff to provide a formal response after which there was a public handing over ceremony to the Police.“Why would you need to publicly hand over an audit report to the police if it was not done only for propaganda value,” Jagdeo questioned. Former NICIL Executive Director; Winston Brassington and former Finance Minister; Dr Ashni Singh …Jagdeo reluctant to have official return for questioningFormer Finance Minister Dr Ashni Singh, in face of theinterest directed his way by the Guyana Police Force’s Special Organized Crime Unit (SOCU), has secured the services of his former Cabinet colleague, former Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs Anil Nandlall.Nandlall communicated news of this development yesterday to SOCU Chief, Lieutenant Colonel (retired) Sidney James.An official missive dispatched by the law offices of Mohabir A. Nandlall & Associates to SOCU head, Lieutenant Colonel (rtd) Sidney James, read: “Although my client is out of the jurisdiction, he always was and remains accessible, ready, able and willing to provide all, or any information at his disposal which your Unit may require.”Recent media reports have suggested that SOCU may be looking for Dr Singh, the Finance Minister and NICIL (National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited) Chairman during the Donald Ramotar Administration.SOCU is also reportedly focusing on the then NICIL Executive Director, Winston Brassington.

The Hobbit and LoTR calendar of events found in OS X easter

first_imgFans of the Lord of the Rings know that the series transcends the books and movies that gave rise to it. Many of us grew up with the books, and then movies have taken our imaginations and amplified them to untold proportions. We laugh at the occasional reference in pop culture — like a Hobbit-inspired safety video — but it’s still special when you see it referenced somewhere unexpected. An unused file in the OS X calendar has revealed the remnants of a great easter egg, calendar dates for important points in Lord of The Rings.If you head to a terminal in OSX and type in cat /usr/share/calendar/calendar.lotr or take a look at the file on Apple’s Open Source website you’ll see a file that lists dates for all sorts of events in the Lord of the Rings books, each listed in a single line as if the creator expected it to be readable at a glance in the actual OS X calendar.The file contains $FreeBSD: src/usr.bin/calendar/calendars/calendar.lotr,v 1.2 2003/10/09 which likely means that this showed up right around the time that OS 10.3 was released, not to mention the release of The Return of the King to theaters. What’s really impressive is that it remained undiscovered until recently.Given that we’re now weeks away from the release of The Hobbit, the timing for the discovery of this particular easter egg is nothing short of uncanny. Some of the points the the calendar actually come from The Hobbit, like the “Death of Smaug” and “Bilbo rescued from Wargs by Eagles” entries. It’s always great to know that developers are able to sneak fun things like this into our day-to-day lives and have us not be aware of it for years, while other easter eggs are discovered just hours after they are released.via MacObserverlast_img read more

KF8 Kindle propose un nouveau format debook plus ouvert

first_imgKF8 : Kindle propose un nouveau format d’ebook plus ouvert Les nouvelles possibilités du format KF8 devraient aider à son adoption. Ce n’est pas le format unique qu’avait demandé l’Europe, mais c’est déjà ça. Amazon est connu, comme Apple, pour avoir créé un écosystème très efficace et très fermé : le Kindle lit les ebooks Kindle, acheté sur Amazon et créé par Amazon. 2011 ayant amené énormément de concurrents. Le premier d’entre eux est l’iPad et son puissant iBook, mais il y a aussi le très apprécié Kobo de la Fnac (lien non disponible). Amazon tente de rattraper le wagon en proposant à son tour des outils performants. Le Kindle a un succès fou, mais il va falloir que ça dure !À lire aussiL’App-Shop d’Amazon enfin disponible en FranceLe KF8 prend en charge le HTML 5, le CSS 3, la mise en page fixe, les polices, les graphismes vectoriels et beaucoup d’optimisations par rapport au format actuel (nommé Mobi 7.). Les images parlent d’elles-mêmes, les différents Kindle et le Kindle Fire se retrouvent avec des possibilités de mise en page d’un tout autre niveau. On imagine sans peine des livres pour enfants, des BDs ou de cuisine. Grâce à ce format, on peut également envisager une application Kindle sur des tablettes et des smartphones. Sans doute en premier sur la future tablette tactile d’Amazon (lien non disponible). On est toutefois loin du format unique d’ebook qu’avait appelé de ses vœux la commissaire Européenne Neelie Kroes. Au lieu d’un standard achetable sur n’importe quelle machine, Amazon sort un format certes plus performant, mais toujours propriétaire. Le 16 janvier 2012 à 11:15 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Forma8 is a Slow and Steady SciFi Search

first_imgStay on target ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball FormSNES Games Officially Come to Nintendo Switch If you have a Nintendo Switch, chances are you also have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new Zelda is a massive, phenomenal game that you can and should play for dozens of hours. But eventually, you’re going to want to play something new on your Nintendo console/handheld hybrid. Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda is a new column highlighting cool, smaller Switch games to check out once you’ve saved Hyrule.It’s an overused term in gaming circles, but I’d be lying if I said Metroidvanias weren’t one of my favorite genres. Slowly exploring a huge nonlinear map, mastering navigation and expanding your possibilities with new tools, just scratches a specific gaming power fantasy itch. And since you can make meaningful progress in short and long sessions alike, Metroidvanias seem like a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch’s console/handheld hybrid nature.And yet, Metroid: Samus Returns, the new 2D sidescrolling Metroid game coming out soon and the first promising Metroid game in almost a decade, is only releasing on the aging Nintendo 3DS. Meanwhile, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the true successor to classic Castlevania, doesn’t land on Switch or any other platform until next year.Fortunately, Metroidvanias are also a popular genre among indie games. The acclaimed indie Metroid cover Axiom Verge releases on Switch this Fall, but in the meantime, there’s a nifty Metroidvania available on Switch right now that may have flown under your radar. While Forma.8’s pace is slow, its quality is steady.Metroidvania fans tend to like it when the game just throws them into the space with virtually no guidance. Smart level design should point them in the right direction, but players should feel like they are charting their own course, that they are figuring it out for themselves.Forma.8 is definitely a game you need to figure out for yourself since it’s completely wordless and pretty minimal when it comes to other ambient music and sounds. I’m still not entirely sure what’s going on, which helped me empathize with the tiny floating circle hero who also seems completely confused in these alien environments. The maps are super vague, as are the purposes of the optional collectibles.Instead of text, Forma.8 presents itself purely through aesthetic tableaus. The game is full of stark compositions featuring huge, angular, simple but striking forms. The limited colors and heavy use of cute dark silhouettes look like Limbo or Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. The atmosphere does a great job of making you slightly creeped out but super curious to keep poking at every corner. It’s impressive what the game can accomplish with what only seems like a handful of elements.That goes for the gameplay itself, too. While you do get new powers that allow you to reach new areas, you don’t get that many, and they don’t come that frequently. Instead, you are encouraged to find new smart survival applications of powers you already possess. For example, you can release short flash to damage nearby foes, plant a bomb that explodes after a few seconds, or use the flash to safely launch the bomb from a distance at a specific target.All of Forma.8’s strengths coalesced for me during one gameplay sequence where I had to guide a baby monster out of a maze to its parent. For the most part, I was separated from the creature by a wall, but by hitting the wall in just the right way, I could command the creature to move to certain spots and activate certain buttons. I figured this all out through experimentation at my own pace. And when the maze ended with me back where I started but now with the monster in tow, I finally put it together without explanation that freeing the little monster would placate the big monster blocking my path in the overworld, which is exactly what happened.Unfortunately, Forma.8 also has some aspects that aren’t nearly as sublime. In general, the game is incredibly slow-paced. Maybe this is due to its touch-heavy mobile routes, but the floaty flight controls have so much delay it’s like gliding through molasses. All of your powers also feature similar lag. I’ve never been so grateful to receive a speed boost power-up in a video game.The speed issue isn’t too bad in non-threatening sections like guiding the baby monster. But the game is also bafflingly full of perilous sections that require a level of timing and precision the controls just can’t comfortably provide like quickly bouncing bombs into specific boss weak points or participating in full-on races through tight corridors with deadly energy blobs on your tail. Plus the sluggish movement pace discourages backtracking by making it boring for even the most patient players.But if you power through the slow controls, which is totally possible, Forma.8 is a lovely little nonlinear adventure.

A MotherDaughter Bond We Have One Heart You And I

first_imgStoryCorpsSarah Churchill and her daughter Yomi Wrong at their StoryCorps interview in San Francisco.When Yomi Wrong was born in 1972, doctors told her mother, Sarah Churchill, the newborn may die during the night.Yomi was born with a rare genetic disorder called osteogenesis imperfecta, which causes bones to break under the slightest pressure.“Your skull was fractured; your arms, your ribs,” Sarah explained to her daughter at StoryCorps in San Francisco, Calif. Doctors told Sarah the best thing to do was to leave Yomi in the hospital because she probably wouldn’t survive.“There was no way that I was going to leave you there.”In the days following her birth, Sarah would spend the night with her newborn, mother and child together as one, sitting in a hospital rocking chair.“I remember our hearts touched each other.”Growing up with a rare genetic condition was tough for Yomi. She kept track of her bone fractures, but it got out of control.“I would fall or, I remember one time, one of my sisters dropped an orange on me, and that broke something,” Yomi remembers. “You could look at me too hard and I would break.”Courtesy of Yomi WrongSarah Churchill in the Bronx at a family gathering with her daughter Yomi in 1976.It was her mother’s love that kept Yomi strong. A love that she wishes she could have passed on to someone.“You know one of my regrets is that I didn’t have my own children,” Yomi tells her mom. “I think one of the biggest desires for wanting to mother is to be able to carry on this legacy of love that you started with me.”Though Yomi will turn 45 this month, she often thinks about what happened the day she was born. It was the day doctors told her mother that Yomi would be a burden if her family took her home. The day, Yomi says, her mother picked her.“You tell me often that you believe I picked you … but I also feel like you picked me. If you had walked away and left me there when I was born, nobody would have looked askance.”“I felt that you were a part of me,” Sarah says. “I knew that I made the right decision.”Audio produced for Morning Edition by Jud Esty-Kendall.StoryCorps is a national nonprofit that gives people the chance to interview friends and loved ones about their lives.

2 dead in Bhatpara clashes Sec 144 imposed

first_imgKolkata: Two persons were killed in Bhatpara after a major clash took place between two unidentified groups on Thursday morning. Six police personnel have also been reportedly injured in the incident. To control the situation, police had to fire tear gas shells and few rounds of bullet in the air. Internet services have been suspended in three sub-divisions.Authorities have imposed Section 144 in Bhatpara and Jagatdal areas of the North 24-Parganas district following the clashes. Route march has also been carried out in the area. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataAccording to sources, hours before the inauguration of the new Bhatpara police station, one Ram Babu Shaw was shot dead within a few hundred metres of the building. This triggered violence in the area with crude bombs being hurled by miscreants at the labourer colony near Bhatpara More. During the clash, another youth, identified as Dharambir Shaw, and several others got serious injuries. Later, Dharambir was declared brought dead at the hospital. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateImmediately, the police intervened but failed to bring the situation under control. Soon a large contingent of police force, Rapid Action Force (RAF) and combat force arrived in Bhatpara and tried to control the situation. Almost at the same time, Director General of Police (DGP) Virendra was on his way to attend the inauguration programme at the police station. He came to know about the incident and returned to Nabanna, cutting short his journey mid-way. Several police vans were vandalised and were set on fire. After almost one-and-a-half hours of bombing, the police force were able to enter the area and bring the situation under control. Meanwhile, the police started firing tear gas shells to disperse the violent mob. Later, several rounds were fired in the air too. Section 144 CrPC was imposed in Bhatpara and Jagatdal areas to prevent any deterioration of the law and order situation. It is alleged that the two persons died in the crossfire. But locals claimed that bullets were fired by the cops while the miscreants hurled only bombs. According to sources, police alleged that the miscreants also fired bullets aiming the police personnel and people in general. Later in the afternoon, Virendra went to Bhatpara police station after attending an urgent meeting at Nabanna with Chief Secretary Malay De, Home Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Law and Order Gyanwant Singh and other senior police officials. Following the meeting, Bandyopadhyay informed that ADG South Bengal Sanjay Singh and few other senior police officials have been instructed to go to Bhatpara and supervise the police activity there. “Some anti-social elements are active in Bhatpara and are creating an unstable situation. Police have been advised to take strong action. The state government is monitoring the situation from time-to-time. People of Bhatpara, Jagatdal and the neighbouring areas have been requested not to get provoked by any propaganda,” he said.last_img read more

Audit boss irritated by €463000 legal bill incurred by law commissioner

first_imgAuditor-general Odysseas Michaelides told parliament on Thursday that the law commissioner spending €463,000 in legal fees on one private lawyer was a classic case of squandering public money.The House watchdog committee on Thursday discussed the auditor’s report on the legislation commissioner who spent €463,000 in two years on one lawyer who had been tasked with overseeing the drafting of legislation as part of the procedure to solve the Cyprus problem.“I feel strongly, I think it constitutes a classic case of squandering public money,” Michaelides told MPs, of the hiring procedure followed by Leda Koursoumba.He said the lawyer in question received €363,000 between 2015 and 2017 and is owed €100,000 more.Koursoumba said she was merely carrying out a decision taken by the cabinet in line with a finance ministry proposal.The law commissioner said it was huge job done by a group of five lawyers who prepared 272 bills spanning over 9,000 pages.Michaelides said the lawyer in question had a coordinating role and she was receiving €75,000 per six months.The auditor said no timeframes had been set, no one checked if the payments corresponded with the receivables, and the lawyer was overseeing her own and the others’ work.Michaelides said he was not disputing the lawyer’s adequacy but proper practice called for some sort of bidding procedure that never took place. You May LikeWifi BoosterNew Wifi Booster Everybody in United States is Talking aboutWifi BoosterUndoFood PreventEat Grapes Every Day For One Month And This Is What May Happen To Your BodyFood PreventUndoDoctor SymptomWhat Kind of Investor Are You? – Next InvestingDoctor SymptomUndo Two of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoHigh temperatures increase risk of firesUndoLimassol police investigating attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
