Satara bypoll: suspense over Chavan contesting continues

first_imgSenior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan, who is being pressed by the top brass of both the Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Congress to contest the Satara Lok Sabha by-election, on Sunday said he would announce his decision in a day or two, even as his supporters urged him to contest the Assembly polls instead.“We will come to a decision in one or two days by taking into account your wishes, by respecting the high command’s opinion as well as my own survey,” the former chief minister said at massive gathering of his supporters in Karad.The meeting had been called to discuss the opinions of Mr. Chavan’s supporters.Earlier, in emphatic representations, the Congressman’s ardent followers unanimously urged him not to contest the Satara by-election but fight and win the Karad South seat in the Assembly polls. “Karad does not wish to be indebted to the ‘kindnesses’ of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State chief Chandrakant Patil,” was the refrain of Mr. Chavan’s supporters.Mr. Chavan said, “My firm bond with Karad began in 1991 … today, our democracy, our Congress party is in danger as the BJP government is out to destroy democracy.”Mr. Chavan represented Karad thrice as MP before being elected as MLA from Karad South in the 2014 Assembly polls.Mr. Chavan accused the State government of breaking opposition parties by either misusing probe agencies or by buying out opposition leaders and MLAs. “The BJP’s plan is impose a dictatorship of a single party. They want to destroy the ideology of the Congress, but ours is the party of ideals … Karad shall be the centre of the renaissance of a new Congress,” Mr. Chavan said.According to a close aide, Mr. Chavan would be entirely dependent on the NCP for help if he chose to contest the Satara by-election, as only the Karad seat is with the Congress at the moment and the district is predominantly an NCP bastion.“Furthermore, Mr. Chavan’s work is prominent in his Assembly constituency, and people have immense respect for him as a person,” he said.Meanwhile, speaking in Mumbai, NCP State president Jayant Patil, too, acknowledged Mr. Chavan’s reluctance to contest the Satara Lok Sabha by-election.“It appears that he [Mr. Chavan] and his supporters are not very enthusiastic about him contesting the bypoll. We are holding discussions with the Congress leaders and will reach a decision soon, perhaps by Monday afternoon,” Mr. Patil said.The Satara Lok Sabha bypoll has been necessitated by the resignation of former Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP from Satara, Udayanraje Bhosale, who recently switched alliances to join the BJP. The Election Commission has announced October 21 as the date of the by-election, the same day as the Assembly polls.NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who suggested Mr.Chavan’s name, does not wish to contest the bypoll.last_img read more

Paris: Paris St Germain suffered their second defeat of the season and their first at home in Ligue 1 for 16 months as they lost 2-0 to Stade de Reims on Wednesday.The French champions, who still lead the standings with 15 points from seven games, looked nothing like the team who crushed Real Madrid 3-0 in the Champions League last week, failing to create clear chances at the Parc des Princes. Hassane Kamara headed home in the first half and Boulaye Dia doubled the tally with a bicycle kick in added time to give the visitors a deserved victory.Reims are eighth on 11 points.Earlier, Victor Osimhen scored his sixth league goal of the season to inspire Lille to a 2-0 home win over Racing Strasbourg.The 20-year-old Nigerian opened the scoring and Loic Remy doubled the lead as the side from northern France moved up to third in the standings on 13 points.Angers are second, behind PSG on goal difference, after Rachid Alioui’s late double gave them a 2-0 win at Toulouse.Olympique Lyonnais extended their winless streak to six games in all competitions as goals by Maxwel Cornet and Moussa Dembele were cancelled out by Yoann Court’s double in a 2-2 draw at Stade Brestois.Lille will take on Chelsea in the Champions League next week when Lyon, who are 11th in Ligue 1 on nine points, travel to RB Leipzig.With Idrissa Gueye rested, Marco Verratti suspended and Marquinhos starting on the bench, PSG, already without injured strikers Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, struggled at the Parc des Princes, especially in midfield.Kamara put the visitors ahead on 29 minutes as he headed home from Marshall Munetsi’s cross with his team’s first effort on target.Eric Choupo-Moting was replaced by Angel Di Maria shortly before the interval after colliding with Neymar but that did little to lift the hosts.It was Reims who threatened, but Oudin’s crossed shot from inside the area hit Keylor Navas’s right-hand post in the 78th minute.Thomas Tuchel’s side were unable to create danger in the closing stages and were effectively handed their first home defeat in Ligue 1 since they lost to Rennes 2-0 at the Parc in May 2018, when Dia’s strike four minutes into stoppage time sealed victory for Reims.

The NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a memo to the teams last week that the NFL prefers for players to stand during The Star-Spangled Banner.Earlier, outside of the hotel where the owners are meeting, two dozen supporters of Black Lives Matter New York held a rally backing NFL players for speaking out, particularly former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the anthem last year in protest of racial injustice in America. Demonstrations during the anthem increased when President Donald Trump called the players unpatriotic if they knelt during the anthem, with both players and league executives saying the meaning of the protests has been misconstrued by the president and his supporters. At a game earlier this month, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium after several 49ers knelt during the anthem.Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was confronted by two people in the lobby of the Manhattan hotel where the owners are meeting. The protesters shouted at him about white supremacy while Jones was surrounded by bodyguards. Jones stopped to listen but said nothing, and the protesters were peacefully led away.The players’ union and the league issued a joint statement just before the annual autumn owners meetings began. “Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities,” the statement said. “NFL executives and owners joined NFLPA executives and player leaders to review and discuss plans to utilize our platform to promote equality and effectuate positive change. We agreed that these are common issues and pledged to meet again to continue this work together.“As we said last week, everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military. In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit to the hard work required for positive change.”On hand at the meeting were Goodell, 10 team owners and a number of NFL players including Eric Reid of the San Francisco 49ers and Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long of the Philadelphia Eagles, all of whom have been vocal on matters of social justice.  news Reuse this content NFL NFL players and owners met on Tuesday to discuss social issues, a session Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross called “constructive.”A group of 11 owners and more than a dozen players met at the league’s headquarters in New York.

Fast Forward: Were These Really the Cars of the Future?

first_imgThe funny thing about flipping through the pages of Fast Forward is that it’s often hard to tell whether the car you’re looking at was designed last year or in the first half of the last century. Basically, every vehicle in the book looks like either a spaceship, a time machine, or some sort of spaceship/time machine.Alright, that’s a slight exaggeration. There are a few cars in this recent release from Berlin’s celebrated publisher Gestalten (we’re fans) that look like actual motor vehicles, and there are indeed plenty that reveal their age thanks to the classic curves of roadsters from the ’40s, the fins that popped up on so many cars in the ’50s, and the gull wing doors that rose in popularity (oh, that was punderful) in the 1970s. While the book bills itself as forward-looking — the tome’s full title is Fast Forward: The Cars of the Future and the Future of Cars — this is more of a retrospective of past vehicles than a look ahead. What we see in this gorgeous, 300-page coffee table book is a look at a few dozen cars once billed as vehicles of the future that now offer a unique perspective on the trends and predictions of past generations. (Also, there are a few vehicles that we may see in the 22nd-century toward the end of the book.)As with all of the recent coffee table books published by Gestalten, this one can be enjoyed at random, picked up and thumbed through in no particular order. But, unlike many Gestalten books, the best way to read Fast Forward is indeed from start to finish. The volume is arranged in chronological order, commencing with a chapter titled “Streamliner” that focuses on vehicles from the 1930s and ’40s. It ends with a section called “United Nude” that focuses on an electric concept car unveiled in 2016.In exploring approximately 80 years of cutting-edge automotive development, Fast Forward shares the stories of many of the industry’s most famous and/or influential designers (Harley J. Earl, father of the Corvette, and Marcello Gandini, visionary behind multiple iconic Lamborghinis, to give but a couple examples). Of course, it also showcases a lot of amazing automobiles. What is striking about so many of the at-a-glance outlandish cars of the past is the fact that, on closer inspection, many of the design elements that were once far-fetched have become commonplace. In between every three-foot tail fin that was phased out over the years, one spots a set of doors not unlike that of a Tesla Model X. For every rocket-shaped nose cone, one sees the same lines and curves on a Ferrari designed two generations ago or on a model released earlier this year.Only serious motor heads are going to enjoy reading every single word in this book. I must admit my own eyes glazed and thoughts wandered during some of the bios and articles. But anyone with even a passing appreciation for vehicles and/or for artistic form will love looking at the pictures. And hey, isn’t that what coffee table books are for anyway?

Regional Health Authorities on Agenda for Reform

first_imgThe functions of the Regional Health Authorities will be among the issues put under the microscope, when the Ministry of Health begins discussions on health care reform. Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, told members of the Jamaica Association of Health Service Executives (JAHSE) on Wednesday, March 13, that he intends to undertake the process of health care reform and will soon be engaging them in discussions on the modalities of this reform. “Issues that we need to seriously consider include the functions of the Regional Health Authorities, how we can efficiently utilize our resources, including pharmaceuticals; the use of technology; and improved monitoring and evaluation,” Dr. Ferguson said. He said that as executives of the health sector, they have an important role to play in making this venture a success and bring the country closer to meeting its National Development Plan, Vision 2030. “Your co-operation and deep involvement in this movement is essential for us to achieve our goals. I know that you have had to work in very difficult circumstances and the difficulties will remain for some time to come. However, I am proud to be working with a team that despite the odds, has been able to produce some of the best results,” the Minister said. Vision 2030 Jamaica is the country’s first long-term national development plan, which aims at enabling Jamaica to achieve developed country status by 2030. It is based on a comprehensive vision: “Jamaica, the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business.” The association was having its quarterly luncheon at the Hotel Four Seasons in Kingston, where it presented University of Technology student, Naidia Cooke-Raymond, with a scholarship valued at $100,000. Mrs. Cooke-Raymond, who works at the Falmouth Hospital in Trelawny, is pursuing a Masters degree in Health Services Administration.“I am very honoured and grateful to receive the scholarship. I am so very appreciative of what the association has done to help me in propelling my education. It is a big help and I hope that I will make everybody proud,” she told JIS News.The JAHSE is a broad-based organisation that provides a place for people in health care administration/management, at all levels and with different business and professional background and experience, to network.By Andrea Braham, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

German parties quarrel over samesex marriage

first_imgBERLIN (AA) – Coalition talks between Merkel’s conservatives and Social Democrats faced heightened tensions due to a row over allowing same-sex couples to adopt children.Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives and the Social Democrats had their first serious quarrel in coalition talks due to a row over same-sex marriages, German press reported.The sixth meeting of the joint working group on family, women and equality on late Monday faced heightened tensions and talks on this policy area had been interrupted, Die Welt reported. According to the daily, Merkel’s conservative CDU/CSU alliance had rejected any opening towards allowing same-sex marriages and full adoption right for same-sex couples, as demanded by the SPD.Christian Union (CDU/CSU) signaled readiness to only allowing successive-adoption, the right of the adoption of a same-sex partner’s biological child and accepted adding an anti -discrimination clause in the coalition agreement.The co-chair of the working group, SPD’s vice chairperson Manuela Schwesig harshly criticized the CDU/CSU’s stance. “Under these circumstances, I can not recommend the SPD members to agree to the coalition agreement,” Schwesig was quoted as saying, according to the report by Die Welt.Conservatives and Social Democrats tried to play down their disagreements in their public remarks on Tuesday.Chancellor Angela Merkel and SPD’s leader Sigmar Gabriel will meet again on Wednesday for the fifth round of coalition negotiations. Merkel and Gabriel aim at concluding the negotiations and formulating the coalition agreement before November 27.SPD is planning to hold a mini-referendum in early December among its 470,000 members on the preliminary coalition agreement.

Closure of Ben Moss stores causing trouble for workers and customers

Closure of Ben Moss stores causing trouble for workers and customers by The Canadian Press Posted Aug 8, 2016 7:20 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 9, 2016 at 7:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WINNIPEG – A group of laid-off employees of Winnipeg-based Ben Moss Jewellers is taking the company to the Manitoba Labour Board, alleging they were let go without severance or notice as the company shutters its 54 locations across Canada.Vera Sime worked as an accountant at head office and says she had been assured her job would be safe until December to give her some time to look for work.But Sime, 55, says the company cut off her pay the same day it gave her a termination letter, and that she wasn’t offered a severance package.Ben Moss advertises itself as “diamond experts since 1910” but entered creditor protection last May.Neither Ben Moss nor the Manitoba Labour Board could be reached for comment.Meanwhile, some customers of the company say they fear they will lose life-time warranties they were sold on their jewelry.Karen D’Eon recently purchased two wedding bands from a Winnipeg Ben Moss store, but only days after picking up the rings, she learned the company is planning to close shop and that their warranty is in jeopardy.Angele Taillefer bought the life-time service plan on five Ben Moss rings.“I was informed that my lifetime warranty was void and when I asked about reimbursement they told me no,” says Taillefer, who paid more than $300 for the warranties.“Now if I lose one of the stones in my family ring I’m out of luck, I have to pay to get it replaced.”D’Eon says she would never have paid extra for the warranty, had she known she known the company was closing a week later.“I was shocked there was nothing in that store showing that they were closing, nothing,” she says.(CTV Winnipeg) read more

Ban marks International Day by stressing need for concrete action to pursue

“The best way to honour Monsignor Romero’s legacy of fighting for human rights and human dignity is by taking concrete action to fulfil the right to truth and other fundamental human rights in our time,” Mr. Ban said in a message marking the International Day for the Right to the Truth concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims.The Day, observed on 24 March, was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly five years ago to honour in particular the Roman Catholic priest’s work and values as a human rights defender. “Earlier this year, I had the honour of paying my respects at the gravesite of Monsignor Óscar Arnulfo Romero, who was murdered in El Salvador on this day in 1980,” Mr. Ban said. “Monsignor Romero was an icon for human rights and social justice.”After witnessing numerous violations of human rights, Monsignor Romero began to speak out on behalf of the poor and the victims of repression. On 24 March 1980, an assassin fired from the door of the chapel where Romero, then Archbishop of San Salvador, was celebrating mass and shot him dead.“The right to the truth – which is both an individual and collective right – is essential for victims but also for society at large,” Mr. Ban said. “Uncovering the truth of human rights violations of the past can help prevent human rights abuses in the future.” “That is why,” he said, “the United Nations supports fact-finding missions, commissions of inquiry, and truth commissions to uncover the truth about gross violations of human rights and serious violations of international humanitarian law.”The UN works to promote justice, propose reparations, and recommend reforms of abusive institutions.In addition to the numerous commissions of inquiry supported by the UN, the world body is also providing advice and assistance to a number of transitional justice processes, including in Cote d’Ivoire and Tunisia, the Secretary-General noted.“I once again call for the full implementation of recommendations of commissions of inquiry and truth commissions,” he said.He went on to say: “On this vital day, let us together pledge to help victims, their families and societies realize their right to truth and protect all who strive to see the truth prevail.” read more

TT teen killed after intervening to protect woman from physical abuse

(Trinidad Guardian) When 17-year-old David Sancaro rushed to a bar to protect a woman he didn’t even know from physical abuse being meted out by her enraged lover on Sunday, little did he know his gallantry would have cost him his life.David SancaroAfter his valiant attempt to temper the situation, the abuser turned on Sancaro moments afterwards. Using his Ford Ranger pick-up as a weapon, the 38-year-old South Oropouche man ploughed into the young boy and then reversed the heavy vehicle on him.As the attacker attempted to roll over Sancaro for another time, his friends started pelting the pick-up with stones, causing the driver to flee straight to the Oropouche Police Station, where he is still detained.Sancaro died hours later at the San Fernando General Hospital.The incident began around 9 pm when Sancaro, of St Mary’s Village, South Oropouche, was liming along the Southern Main Road, Otaheite, with friends Stephen Tannis, 22 and Kadeem Elliot, 14, both of Fyzabad. While liming, the group observed the suspect and his girlfriend having a heated argument. Witnesses said the man became violent and the boys rushed over to defend the woman by talking to the suspect. However, the enraged man allegedly picked up a cutlass and chased the boys. The boys ran off and the suspect got into his pick-up and chased them along the Southern Main Road.Knowing they could not outrun the pick-up, Tannis and Elliot ran onto the slope of an adjacent drain. But Sancaro, who recently underwent surgery to remove an abscess, could not keep up. Witnesses said Sancaro was first knocked over before the suspect reversed over his body. The suspect then drove off and later reported the incident to the Oropouche police.Paramedics who arrived on the scene attempted to resuscitate Sancaro before taking him to the SFGH, where he died while receiving treatment. Both Tannis and Elliot were assisting police with investigations yesterday.In an interview outside her home, Tannis’ mother, Joanne Tannis, said Sancaro lived with her family for six years and was considered a son to her. She said Tannis called her on Sunday night with the harrowing news, “Mammy, David is dying you know.”Relating the account she got from Tannis, Joanne said Sancaro saw the suspect hitting the woman and went across to talk to him. She said the suspect became angry and pushed David.“They were talking peacefully, but the fella did not like that. He pushed David and David pushed him back, so the fella ran and took up a blade, and that was when my son stepped in, slapped him (suspect) and the blade fell. The fella did not like that so he went to his van and shouted ‘I coming back for allyuh’ and he really did,” Joanne said.She said while the boys were running Sancaro attempted to climb a wall, but couldn’t because of his surgical wound and ran back to the road and was knocked over. As the driver attempted to roll over Sancaro again, his friends began throwing stones at the pick-up.“Tell me what kind of human being is that? Don’t tell me it was because of alcohol in you, you can’t be that ignorant.”Sancaro’s stepfather Junior Andrews said he had urged his stepson to stay off the road several times. Andrews said when he reached home from work on Sunday and asked for his stepson, he was told Sancaro had gone to a “function” in Fyzabad. He said Sancaro’s brother took him to Fyzabad so they believed he was there. It was around 10 pm that someone came to his gate and told him Sancaro saw a man beating his wife and intervened.Although Sancaro was killed while attempting to rescue someone, Andrews said it was dangerous to be a peacemaker.“Helping people now is a risk because you can see certain things and get licked down for seeing those things. Talking now is also a risk, we have to face facts,” Andrews said.He said Sancaro recently got a job as a welder but could not begin this week because of the surgery.

Lyrics Site Genius Accuses Google of Lifting Content

first_img 50 Attorneys General Launch Bipartisan Probe Into GoogleYouTube Fined $170M For Alleged Child Privacy Law Violation Stay on target is one of the most popular sites for those on a quest for lyrical knowledge. It’s so popular that Google was allegedly busted copying their lyrics.Google, as you’re probably aware, will show snippets from other sources in many different kinds of common search results. Song lyrics happen to be one of those. Tap in a query like “Red Barchetta lyrics” and you’ll see a large card at the top of the results with the words and copyright info.The results can come from a number of different websites. In that example, you’d see that they were pulled right from Rush’s official site.So how did arrive at the conclusion that Google was cribbing? They used Morse code.Genius hid a secret message in certain songs. Instead of using dots and dashes, they subtly switched apostrophes — switching between straight and curved styles. That added a sort of watermark to Genius’ lyrics., where music lovers go to check hip-hop and other pop music lyrics, says Google is lifting and republishing lyrics from its site—and says the proof is in the apostrophes— The Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) June 16, 2019Decode the message and it reads “red handed.” Subtle, right? Genius claims that shortly after the tweak its code started popping up on certain Google results and that’s there really is no way it could be a coincidence.Google quickly countered Genius’s claim, saying that lyrics that appear on cards “are licensed from a variety of sources and are not scraped from sites on the web.” If that’s the case, then things get a bit more complicated.If someone did scrape the “watermarked” lyrics from Genius it was one of Google’s partners, not Google itself. Google says that they’re currently “investigating this issue” and will end agreements with any partners who are not playing by the rules.It’s certainly a curious situation. As Thom Holwerda of OSNews points out, it makes for a rather tricky fair use argument — going after Google when Genius isn’t the original creator of the lyrics either.More on Simplifies Podcast, Music Navigation for SubscribersWatch: Rock Star Tries to Break the World’s First 3D-Printed, Smash-Proof GuitarSpotify Mixes Music, News to Rev Up Your Commutelast_img read more
