Madhya Pradesh farmers begin 3day stir supplies affected

first_imgBhopal: Milk and vegetable supplies in Madhya Pradesh are likely to be affected with farmers in the state holding a three-day protest to press the Kamal Nath government to fulfill its loan waiver promise. Madhya Pradesh’s Congress government had promised to waive farm loans up to Rs 2 lakh ahead of the Assembly elections. Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) state chief Anil Yadav said the promise was yet to be fulfilled, as many farmers were still getting notices from banks threatening to declare them defaulters.

CCTV cameras strike at this fear itself. Women can now step outside their homes with the confidence that Delhi government’s cameras are watching out for their security. If anyone misbehaves, they will be captured on camera and nabbed immediately. The Delhi Police SHO of the area will have a live feed of all cameras to avoid any delays in accessing footage. “The footage will also reach our command centre at the PWD headquarters over internet for which a WiFi connection has been provided by the government. I appeal to all people to keep in touch with local RWAs for any issues with respect to the CCTVs and inform the administration in case of any problems faced,” said the Labour Minister.last_img read more

Saudi Arabia spat affecting Canadians embarking on hajj community members say

first_imgTORONTO – Members of Canada’s Muslim community say recent tensions between Ottawa and Saudi Arabia are affecting some people’s ability to perform what’s seen in the faith as a fundamental religious right.They say many currently embarking on hajj, a pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia, are anxious about their travel arrangements in light of the simmering spat, which has seen the country’s state airline cancel flights to and from Canada.At least one travel agent also says some would-be pilgrims decided not to follow through on their travel plans after tensions between the two countries flared up unexpectedly earlier this month.The diplomatic dispute began when Canada’s Ministry of Global Affairs sent a tweet calling for Saudi Arabia to “immediately release” two women’s rights activists currently detained in jail.The kingdom reacted by severing diplomatic ties, suspending future trade, recalling students from Canadian schools and cancelling the state airline’s operations in Canada.People in contact with hajj participants say the move involving the airline has complicated return travel plans for many, and add that they are anticipating other post-pilgrimage issues.“We are having a lot of problems,” said Syed Ahmed, Operation Manager at King Travel agency specializing in trips related to hajj and other religious occasions. “Almost we can say 25 per cent of people are asking for a refund.”Ahmed said travellers booked with the Mississauga, Ont., agency frequently flew to the kingdom using Saudia, the state airline that previously operated at least two direct routes departing from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.But Saudia cancelled those routes effective Monday, leaving travellers who used their services to reach the country with questions as to how they can return home.Ahmed said Saudia has offered to cover the costs of transferring tickets to other airlines, but said spaces — already at a premium during the hectic hajj season — are extremely hard to find.But logistical arrangements are only part of the problem, according to Imam Syed Soharwardy, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada.Hajj, which officially gets under way later this week, looms large in the consciousness of all practising Muslims, Soharwardy said.All followers of Islam with the physical and financial means to make the pilgrimage are expected to do so once in their lifetime, he said. Those who undertake the trip to Mecca seek forgiveness of past sins and hope to draw closer to God.The annual pilgrimage draws people from around the world to Saudi Arabia each year. The crowds, squeezed shoulder to shoulder in prayer five times a day, fill the city of Mecca and surrounding areas to perform a number of physically demanding and intricate rites.Soharwardy said members of congregations spanning from Montreal to Vancouver who are making the trip fear they won’t be in a fit state to deal with the hassles of shifting, uncertain travel arrangements.“Whether the person is a very young man or woman or old man or woman, they get so tired because hajj is not easy,” he said. “Hajj is a very cumbersome, tiring ritual and some people get sick.”Many, he said, also feel anxious about the prospect of travelling on a Canadian passport at a time when open suspicion of Ottawa seems to dominate among Saudi authorities.But Soharwardy said many wary travellers will forge ahead with their plans, saying most have spent years saving up for a once-in-a-lifetime journey or may fear their physical condition could change and leave them unable to go through with the arduous pilgrimage another time.Soharwardy called on the Canadian government to offer support to pilgrims who may encounter difficulties.The Canadian government has maintained talks with Saudi authorities, but has refused to back down on its critical stance against the kingdom’s human rights practices.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently said Ottawa would like to improve its relationship with Saudi Arabia, but will not sacrifice Canada’s position on human rights.last_img read more

Abramovich Will Have to Give Record £375 Million Payout to Sack

New York – Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly losing his patience with manager José Mourinho.Following the ‘Blues’ poor standings in this season’s Premier League, the team’s internal problems for which the coach has been blamed, the Russian billionaire is getting fed up, according to the Daily Star.However, sacking the Portuguese coach would cost Abramovich a world record pay-out of £37.5 Million. If Mourinho were to receive that amount of money, he would become the highest paid-out manager in football history.“Hurricane Abramovich” is known for sacking coaches that do not meet his high expectations. Even though he declared his support to ‘The Special One’ earlier this week, he could fire his head coach if things do not improve quickly.The former Real Madrid coach signed a new 4-year contract with Chelsea this summer worth £10 million in salary per year.Abramovich allegedly agreed to dish out such high per-year salary as a “reward” for the ‘Blues’ exceptional performance last year and winning the 2014 Premier League.Yet, things are completely turning sour this year as the British team stands in 16th place at the Premier League, only a few points away from relegation zone.Mourinho has been harshly criticized and blamed for Chelsea’s current mess. On Tuesday, Italian manager Fabio Capello lashed out at the Portuguese coach saying he “exhausts his players mentally” and their cycles do not last more than 2 years.Capello also accused his decisions on the pitch: “…There have also been tactical errors from the coach, who this year is not preparing for matches very well.” read more

Business leaders worried about biodiversity loss UNbacked report finds

13 July 2010One in four corporate titans worldwide view biodiversity loss as a threat to their business growth, according to a new United Nations-backed study released today. It found that more than half of chief executive officers surveyed in Latin America and 45 per cent of their counterparts in Africa see biodiversity decline as detrimental to profits, compared to less than 20 per cent in Western Europe.The publication also found that business leaders who do not include the sustainable management of ‘natural capital’ as part of their strategies may be at a disadvantage in the global market.Compiled by The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB), a body hosted by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the study said that 80 per cent of consumers would stop purchasing products from companies that disregard ethical considerations in their sourcing practices.“Through the work of the TEEB and others, the economic importance of biodiversity and ecosystems is emerging from the invisible into the visible spectrum,” said Pavan Sukhdev, TEEB Study Leader and head of UNEP’s Green Economy initiative.The new report points to multinational mining giant Rio Tinto as one company that has committed itself to having a so-called “Net Positive Impact” on biodiversity, developing new methods of assessing the biodiversity values of its landholdings. It has also started to apply biodiversity compensation in Madagascar, Australia and other countries.Coca Cola, Walmart and BC Hydro are among corporations with similar commitments on softening biodiversity loss.“We are entering an era where the multi-trillion dollar losses of natural and nature-based resources are starting to shape markets and consumer concerns,” said UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner.“How companies respond to these risks, realities and opportunities will increasingly define their profitability; corporate profile in the market-place and the overall development paradigm of the coming decades on a planet of 6 billion, going to over 9 billion people by 2050,” he added. read more

Mitsubishi announces aircraft design centre in Montreal for SpaceJet series

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 19, 2019Companies in this story: (TSX:BBD.B)The Canadian Press MONTREAL — The Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. is putting down roots in Quebec, unveiling plans for a new product development centre in the Montreal area after reaching a deal in June to buy Bombardier Inc.’s regional jet program.The office will be part of the company’s push to get a single-aisle airliner off the ground in 2020 as it doubles down on regional jets. It plans to hire 100 engineers and certification specialists in Montreal within a year to assist the point team in Washington state.Premier Francois Legault says the Quebec government will lend Mitsubishi $12 million, which will be forgiven if the Japanese firm provides high-paid employment for 250 workers over five years.Alex Bellamy, the company’s chief development officer, says the loan helped Mitsubishi to settle quickly on the Montreal area, which has a rich cluster of aeronautics firms, after idea was first floated at the Paris Air Show in July.Bellamy says Mitsubishi Aircraft, owned by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., aims to seize on the region’s technical expertise to develop the SpaceJet program, which has seen setbacks since 2013, when the first model was initially scheduled for delivery.That 88-seat M90 plane, which will have no middle seats, is now expected to enter into service next year, to be followed in 2023 by the 76-seat M100. read more

Canadian dollar lower amid fiscal cliff concerns lower copper prices

Canadian dollar lower amid fiscal cliff concerns, lower copper prices by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 9, 2012 4:50 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed below parity with the U.S. dollar Friday on worries about the fallout from a string of tax hikes and deep spending cuts set to automatically go into effect in the U.S. in the new year.The loonie was down 0.09 of a cent at 99.87 cents US as worries about the knock-on effects from those hikes and cuts sent traders to the perceived safe haven of U.S. Treasuries.The fiscal cliff label refers to a string of tax increases and steep spending cuts aimed at cutting the deficit which are set to take effect at the first of the year. If they are allowed to take full effect, the cuts and tax increases will total about at least half a trillion dollars and take a big chunk out of GDP, in 2013. Failure to come up with a compromise would likely tip the U.S. back into recession and drag down other economies with it.Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney said Thursday that the fiscal cliff is the most imminent threat facing the Canadian economy.There was no comfort to be found after President Barack Obama said Friday afternoon that he is inviting congressional and business leaders to a meeting next week for talks aimed at finding a compromise.But he added he would stick to his pledge to seek higher taxes from the wealthy as part of his plan to reduce the U.S. government’s budget deficit. That position is opposed by many Republicans in Congress.Commodity prices were mixed amid worries about demand concerns and the higher greenback.The December crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange shook off early losses after encouraging U.S. consumer data was released mid-morning, rising 98 cents to US$86.07 a barrel.The University of Michigan’s consumer sentiment survey index came in at 84.9 in November, the highest reading since July 2007, from a final October reading of 82.6, reflecting lower gasoline prices and the improvement in housing and labour market data. Economists had expected a decline to 81.5 because of concerns over the fiscal cliff and the effects of superstorm Sandy.Copper, viewed as an economic barometer as the metal is used in so many applications, dropped two cents to US$3.45 a pound.December gold bullion rose $4.90 to US$1,730.90 an ounce.Traders also digested positive Chinese economic data. Auto sales, consumer spending and factory output in the world’s second-largest economy all improved in October.The European debt crisis also kept traders on edge as cash-strapped Greece said it would issue unusually short-term debt on Tuesday in the hope of raising enough money to make a key bond repayment days later.It will issue €2.1 billion in four-week treasury bills and €1 billion in 13-week bills.Greece is not expected to get its next batch of international rescue loans by Nov. 16, when it has to roll over €5 billion in three-month treasury bills.Meanwhile, the Greek parliament is to vote on a new budget containing a fresh slew of austerity measures on Sunday. read more

San Francisco Giants Complete Sweep Win World Series Over

On a cool, damp night in Detroit, the San Francisco Giants — who came back from seemingly insurmountable deficits in their two playoff series — completed a sweep of the Tigers in 10 innings to capture the World Series for the second time in three years.Their 4-3 Game 4 win capped a dramatic post-season for San Francisco, which trailed the Cincinnati Reds 0-2 in the divisional series and the St. Louis Cardinals 1-3 in the NLCS.Marco Scutaro, who has been outstanding, delivered one more key hit this October, a go-ahead single with two outs in the 10th inning that proved to be the winning run.“Detroit probably didn’t know what it was in for,” Giants general manager Brian Sabean said. “Our guys had a date with destiny.”The Giants combined the most important elements of championship baseball. After three straight wins that looked relatively easy, they sealed this victory when Sergio Romo got Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera to look at strike three for the final out.A wild on-field celebration ensued, and was carried into the clubhouse.“Tonight was a battle,” Giants star Buster Posey said. “And I think tonight was a fitting way for us to end it because those guys played hard. They didn’t stop, and it’s an unbelievable feeling.”Posey, the only player who was in the starting lineup when San Francisco beat Texas in the 2010 clincher, and the underdog Giants celebrated in the center of the diamond at Comerica Park.They built toward this party all month, winning six elimination games this postseason. In the clubhouse, they hoisted the trophy, passed it around and shouted the name of each player who held it.Benched during the 2010 Series, Pablo Sandoval, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda, went 8 for 16, including a three-homer performance in Game 1.“You learn,” Sandoval said. “You learn from everything that happened in your career. . . We’re working hard to enjoy this moment right now.”Cabrera delivered the first big hit for Detroit, interrupting San Francisco’s run of dominant pitching with a two-run homer that blew over the right-field wall in the third.Posey put the Giants ahead 3-2 with a two-run homer in the sixth and Delmon Young hit a tying home run in the bottom half.It then became a matchup of bullpens, and the Giants prevailed.Ryan Theriot led off the 10th with a single against Phil Coke, moved up on Brandon Crawford’s sacrifice and scored on a shallow single by Scutaro, the MVP of the NL championship series. Center fielder Austin Jackson  made a throw home, to no avail.“That’s what it makes so much special, the way we did it,” Scutaro said. “We’re always against the wall and my team, it just came through first series, second series and now we sweep the Tigers.” read more

Meetings of the group have been held every almost every year since 1954.The original summit, at the Hotel Bilderderberg in the Netherlands, was organised with the stated aim of fostering closer economic and political ties between the US and Europe.Topics for discussion this year include whether the economic recovery is sustainable, whether privacy exists, China’s new political and economic outlook, the situation in Ukraine, ‘current events’, and ‘the future of democracy and the middle class trap’.‘Secretive’The secretive nature of the Bilderberg meetings – and the elite nature of the guest list – means they’ve long been the subject of criticism with accusations that the organisation is a mostly white, mostly male networking opportunity.

Journalist fined for calling Merkel a tart

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Radio journalist Yiorgos Trangas has been fined 25,000 euros for calling Angela Merkel the ‘tart of Berlin’ during a live broadcast that resulted in the station he works for being fined 25,000 euroes. The National Council of Radio and Television (ESR) fined Real FM – the station Trangas works for – for comments made by himself about Angela Markel on two occasions in September and October of last year.The council said Trangas had abused the Greek language and made obscene characterisations about the German chancellor. The ESR issued the fine after it received a number of complaints from listeners to Trangas’ show. On Wednesday morning, a tearful Trangas appeared on the Proino Antenna morning show on Antenna TV, expressing his regret that a fine had been issued. Real FM has the right to appeal the decision.“At 63, I’m being told that I’m a typical Balkan southerner, who is lazy and a schemer. Really! I’ve been working since I was 16! I’ve worked night and day for a half a century. So why are we told we’re lazy and crooks?”He added: “The Greek are the Jews of 2012.

Le Solar Impulse est toujours au Bourget

first_imgLe Solar Impulse est toujours au BourgetLe Solar Impulse, star du 49e salon du Bourget ouvert au grand public du 24 au 26 juin, ne rentrera pas ce vendredi en Suisse en raison de la météo. Le décollage de l’avion solaire expérimental était prévu ce matin pour 07h00 (heure de Paris) et devait atterrir à Payerne (Suisse) à 19h00. Cette étape devait être la dernière du parcours européen du Solar Impulse. “Après une analyse minutieuse de la météo de vendredi et un examen attentif des risques possibles, l’équipe de Solar Impulse préfère renoncer à son vol retour vers la Suisse”, ont annoncé jeudi les organisateurs dans un communiqué cité par l’AFP.Cet avion propulsé à l’énergie solaire (ses ailes sont recouvertes de 12.000 cellules photovoltaïques qui permettent une alimentation des 4 moteurs électriques) a déjà connu quelques péripéties pour se rendre au Salon International de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace : l’avion avait pu se poser au Bourget le 14 juin, trois jours après une tentative ratée due à de mauvaises conditions atmosphériques.Les débuts du Solar Impulse ont été hésitants : il y a un an ses prouesses  consistaient en quelques sauts. Le premier vol d’essai d’une durée 87 min avait eu lieu le 7 avril 2010 à l’aérodrome militaire de Payerne. Aujourd’hui l’avion affiche 26 heures de vol entre la Suisse, Bruxelles, et Paris.À lire aussiLiter of Light, d’étonnantes lampes faites de bouteilles pour apporter la lumière aux habitants sans électricitéLes ambitions pour le Solar Impulse sont  à la mesure de ses progrès rapides : en 2013 ou 2014, est prévu un tour du monde en cinq étapes après un survol de l’Atlantique dès 2013.Malgré ces contretemps, un avenir prometteur est envisageable pour l’énergie solaire : il existe désormais un dispositif dépendant d’une météo optimale comme tout autre, mais à la fois performant et écologique.”Solar Impulse est né pour montrer qu’on peut réaliser des choses impossibles”, avait déclaré Bertrand Piccard, l’année dernière lors d’une conférence de presse à Payerne.Le 1 juillet 2011 à 13:33 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

NSFW Bonecraft World of Warcraft Porn Trailer Debuts

first_imgAfter our original Bonecraft post piqued the interest of some of our readers, I asked the game’s designer, D-Dub, if we might be able to post a safe for work trailer on the site. Of course, it should come as little surprise that we’ve got different concepts of what precisely what qualifies something as “safe for work.” That, after all, largely depends on where you work.I watched some of this trailer at my desk, but after the words “An Erotic Fantasy Quest, Somewhere in Some Galaxy” dissolve, things heat up pretty quickly. There’s probably nothing on here that couldn’t be show on, say, Comedy Central after midnight, but the subject matter may well get you a stern talking to from the boss.AdChoices广告For those who missed the first post, Bonecraft is a World of Warcraft/Starcraft parody from the folks who gave the world the erotic fighting game BoneTown. I spoke to a rep from the company who told me that it fancies itself something of an adult version of South Park.There’s a link to the trailer (we opted not to embed the thing on the site) and some relatively clean screen caps, after the jump.

STF reconstructs plot of smuggling firearms

first_imgKolkata: The Special Task Force (STF) of the Kolkata Police reconstructed the plot in connection with the smuggling of firearms from Rifle Factory Ishapore to the Maoists. A team comprising senior police officers from the STF took one of the six arrested persons, Umesh Ray, alias Bhola, to the spot and reconstructed the plot. Bhola is a resident of Ishapore near Surkikal Kumarpara at Noapara in North 24-Parganas. During reconstruction, the investigating officers have come across the spots from where they used to take scrap firearms out of the rifle factory without getting noticed by the security personnel. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsSources said during reconstruction Bhola showed the window with broken grill at the rifle factory from where they used to take out firearms. Police have found some revolvers, quite similar to those recovered on Tuesday, lying near the window.

10 User Experience Design Trends You Need to Know About in 2019

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. Listen Now 6 min read What is user experience (UX) and what does it mean? On paper, it is how a user feels when they are interacting with a product such as a piece of software, an application or a website. However, its meaning can be the difference between the success and failure of a company. Simply put, a product with a great UX makes our lives easier and makes us feel good, so we want to use it more.In 1955, the wireless remote gave us full control of our televisions from the convenience of our couch. In more recent times, mobile phones have gone from featuring monophonic ringtones and snake to revolutionizing our everyday lives and how we interact with our digital media. 2018 saw many advances in UX and 2019 seeks to improve on those advancements. With that being said, here are the top 10 UX design trends that the rest will start following. 1. Voice-user interfaces (VUIs)With the rise in popularity of virtual assistants such as Siri, Alexa and Bixby, speech recognition and voice command software is not only becoming much more accurate but could help change UI and UX in 2019. Instead of using our fingers to type, our voice could be the main way of interacting with applications going forward. It’s more convenient, delivers quicker results and has a great user experience. Related: 15 Useful Tech Tools for Your Business2. Personal user interfaces (PUIs)Companies such as Netflix have already started implementing and seeing the success of an interface customized to an individual user’s experience. It collects data from previous shows you have watched and then knows what to recommend the next time you log into Netflix, like a best friend who knows your exact taste. It has already shown that if you cater to the needs of the user based on their previous interactions, purchases and preferences, it is a recipe for success. Why risk trying to develop a UI that pleases everyone when you can create an interface that learns from the user and adapts to personalise the experience for each user? 3. Augmented Reality (AR)Popular in games like Pokémon Go, AR has been around for only a few years but Walmart, Ikea, MTV and Cadbury have already implemented AR into their applications. In particular, the Ikea app is revolutionary in its user experience. Instead of wondering how a piece of furniture will look in your home, you can open the app, select which furniture you are looking to buy, point your phone at the desired space in your house and you will instantly see in real time how it will look. Related: A Step-by-Step Guide To Building Your First Mobile App4. Apps designed for every platformWe use multiple devices such as laptops, desktop computers, mobile phones and tablets, so why have an app that’s only designed for one platform? Businesses need to utilize device-neutral, cross-platform apps in order to provide a much better UX and reach a wider audience. “Device agnosticism” may not be a new buzzword, but it will be one of the hottest trends across all industries.5. Material design Minimalism might be a good lifestyle choice, but it’s a terrible UI design choice. Gone are the days of flat design with its simple two-dimensional UI elements, use of simple shapes with no added effects and a “function over fashion” approach. Material design has taken center stage with 3D icons, responsive animations, shadow and lighting depth effects, grid-based layouts and more. We will continue to see the rise of material design being implemented to provide better detailed patterns and textures, customization and increased interactivity for a much more engaging user experience.Related: The 25 Best U.S. Cities for Tech Startups6. Video contentMobile data is becoming less of an issue and file size compression is enabling faster loading times, so videos could be the main form of consumable content. Videos are nothing new, of course, social media is popularizing short videos and it only takes a few seconds to gain or lose the user’s attention. That makes it hard if you want to get a message across in a short amount of time with words. That’s why more companies are implementing short videos on their apps and websites to convey more information in a condensed amount of time while holding the user’s attention. 7. Biometric authenticationOnline digital threats have increased and businesses, as well as customers, are focused on their security more than ever. Biometric authentication can be the answer to that problem. It increases security by scanning the user’s biometrics such as a fingerprint to confirm the user’s identity before granting access to sensitive information. This can be seen in banking apps or before a user makes a purchase from the Google Play store.Related: 8 Online Careers You Can Start Today From Home8. Optimized navigationWhen it comes to loading a webpage, you have about three seconds until your user leaves. This means two things: your webpage has to be optimised with compressed file sizes for faster loading and navigation needs to be clear and simple. Material design allows you to add an incredible amount of detail and effects, but don’t fall into the trap of cluttering the page and making navigation hard. Three seconds is not a lot of time, and businesses have to make the most of those few seconds with clear navigation and faster loading, all crucial to UI and UX design.9. Foldable phonesPrototypes have already started making waves from brands such as Samsung and Huawei with their unique foldable displays. But what’s so great about a foldable phone you may ask? Well, a foldable device takes up less space and is lighter in weight, but one of the biggest benefits is that the material used for a foldable display is stronger and more durable to accidents such as dropping the phone without having to worry about cracking the screen. This is an issue mobile (iPhone) users know far too well. 10. Content always will be kingEvery business needs to have high-quality content, including a compelling story as to why the user needs to buy their product. One way to do this is to use user behavior and preferences to know what to focus on and who to target. Technology will always improve and so will UI and UX design. The game continues to change, and businesses need to keep up with the latest UX trends in order to keep their users happy and engaged.  Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
