Mehbooba refutes Amit Shah’s allegations

first_img Hardening her stand on the Kathua rape and murder case, Ms. Mufti, whose government fell on June 19 after the BJP decided to pull out, said, “Not handing over the Rasana rape and murder case to CBI, getting the pro-rapist ministers removed and also issuing orders not to harass the Gujjar and Bakarwal community in the guise of anti encroachment drives were my duties as CM to provide a sense of security to both communities.”In a bid corner the BJP, she said the status quo on Article 370, dialogue with Pakistan and Hurriyat were a part of Agenda of Alliance. “Encouraging dialogue, withdrawing cases against stonepelters and the unilateral ceasefire were much needed measures to restore confidence on the ground. This was recognized and endorsed by BJP,” she said. Referring to Mr. Shah’s speech made in Jammu, PDP leader Abdul rehman Veeri said the BJP president “was careless while presenting the actual facts to the people during his speech”. Mehbooba calls it quits as BJP pulls the plug Was Mehbooba privy to BJP move? PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday took to the social media, Twitter, to issue a point-by-point retort to the former ally and BJP president Amit Shah’s allegations on her “misrule” of J&K.“Many false charges levelled against us by our former allies. Our commitment to the Agenda of Alliance, co-authored by Ram Madhav and endorsed by senior leaders like (Union Home minister) Rajnath (Singh) ji never wavered. It is sad to see them disown their own initiative and label it a soft approach,” said Ms. Mufti, who released six-part tweets.The tweets came just a day after Mr. Shah blew the poll bugle in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday from Jammu and accused Ms. Mufti of being soft on separatists and discriminatory to the Jammu and Ladakh regions. Also Read  “The allegations of discrimination against Jammu and Ladakh have no basis in reality. Yes, the Valley has been in turmoil for a long time and the floods of 2014 were a setback, therefore needed focused attention.“Results on the ground are for all to see. If anything they should review the performance of their own ministers, who largely represented the Jammu region if there were any such concerns, none among them either at state or central level talked about it during the last 3 years,” she added. The former chief minister also took potshots at the BJP over journalist Shujaat Bukhari, who was assassinated in Srinagar on June 14.“After expressing concern about freedom of expression in J&K following Shujaat’s murder, their MLA, notorious and even punished for his role in the aftermath of the unfortunate Kathua case still threatens journalists belonging to the Valley, so what are they going to do about him?” asked Ms. Mufti.Also Readlast_img read more

Ishant Sharma’s resurgence welcome news for India’s pace stocks

first_imgIndia’s batsmen plundered runs and spin spearhead Ravichandran Ashwin got among the wickets against Sri Lanka but it was the resurgence of paceman Ishant Sharma that probably pleased captain Virat Kohli most ahead of their tour of South Africa.Sri Lanka had lost 9-0 to India across all formats a few months back and were therefore never expected to provide the ideal preparation for what will be a challenging trip to South Africa for the world’s top-ranked Test team.After the rain-curtailed opening match at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens ended in a draw, Kohli’s men crushed the visitors by an innings and 239 runs in the second Test, matching their biggest winning margin in the longest format.India’s batsmen compiled up a mammoth first-innings total against Sri Lanka’s toothless attack, while the spin duo of Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja combined to pick up 13 of the touring side’s 20 wickets in Nagpur.But it was Ishant’s match haul of 5-80 that the skipper described as the standout bowling performance of the match.”Even on this wicket, to have that kind of bounce and trouble the batsmen regularly, I think Ishant was outstanding,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation on Monday.”Although the spinners obviously did a good job for us, I think Ishant was the standout bowler in this game.”India’s biggest victory margin until Monday’s win was against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2007, a Test in which Ishant made his debut as a 18-year-old.The lanky right-arm paceman was marked as the future leader of India’s fast bowling attack and while he has gone on to play 78 Tests he has failed to live up to those lofty expectations.advertisementAfter falling behind Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav in the pecking order, the emergence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar as a swing bowler has only made it tougher for Ishant and his chances have largely come due to the unavailability of other fast bowlers.He played three out of four Tests against Australia earlier this year after Shami was ruled out with a knee injury but played no part in three Tests in Sri Lanka in July-August, though he kept himself fit and in form by picking up 20 wickets in four matches for Delhi in the Ranji Trophy.Ishant would probably not have played in Nagpur had Bhuvneshwar not withdrawn from the final two Tests to get married and Shami was not ruled out due to a slight injury concern.In Nagpur, he extracted good bounce and movement from a batting-friendly track, which could prove crucial in South Africa with India set to face wickets that are expected to aid the faster bowlers.”The way Umesh and Shami and even Bhuvi were bowling was tremendous. I didn’t take much wickets in the last 12 Tests I played, specially in India. They deserved to get a chance before me,” Ishant said after Monday’s win.”The problem for me was the wicket column was always empty. But now I am getting wickets, I am felling pretty good about myself.”It’s a healthy competition the way everyone is performing. When you get an opportunity you have to take wickets.”last_img read more

Man Utd: Alex Ferguson in Intensive Care after Brain Surgery

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP) — Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was in intensive care after emergency surgery for a brain hemorrhage on Saturday amid an outpouring of affection and get-well messages from across football.Since retiring from United after almost 27 years in charge in 2013, the 76-year-old Ferguson has continued to attend matches at Old Trafford, participate in coaching initiatives, and has been a regular at horse racing as a prominent owner.“Sir Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery today for a brain hemorrhage,” United said in a statement. “The procedure has gone very well but he needs a period of intensive care to optimize his recovery. His family request privacy in this matter.”The most successful manager in British football history, Ferguson has appeared in good health since ending his intense direct involvement in coaching. The Scot had surgery to fit a pacemaker in 2004 after a heart irregularity was discovered and had a hip operation five years ago shortly after retiring from United.Since leaving the dugout, Ferguson has traveled the world passing on his vast football knowledge to a new generation of coaches and fans through books and talks, including at Harvard University, on how he won 49 honors in his career including 38 titles at United.Starting work as a teenager in a Glasgow shipyard instilled a socialist ethos that the former Glasgow Rangers player carried throughout a career that included a spell coaching Scotland at the 1986 World Cup and eventually saw him knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.FILE – In this file photo dated Wednesday, May 24, 2017, Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, during a Europa League final against Ajax Amsterdam at the Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. Manchester United said Saturday May 5, 2018, that former manager Alex Ferguson has undergone emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage. (AP Photo/Martin Meissner, FILE)He also helped to made households names of two of the game’s biggest stars: David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.“My thoughts and prayers are with you, my dear friend,” Ronaldo wrote on social media accounts. “Be strong, Boss!”Alongside a picture of him signing a contract as a youngster, former United midfielder David Beckham wrote on Instagram : “Keep fighting Boss. Sending prayers and love to (wife) Cathy and the whole family.”Beckham broke into the team in the 1990s as Ferguson turned United into the country’s most successful club. Hired from Aberdeen in 1986, Ferguson held onto his United job despite taking until 1993 to end the club’s title drought. Ferguson retired a champion in 2013, lifting the Premier League trophy for a 13th time to take the club’s haul of English championship crowns to a record 20.Ferguson’s only significant career regret was he managed to win the Champions League only twice, but the first triumph was part of the 1999 treble that also included the Premier League and FA Cup.The scale of Ferguson’s achievements during his dynastic reign is underscored by United’s failure under three managers to win the Premier League in the five years since his retirement.Ferguson stepped away from management just as neighbor Manchester City, which posed little threat until a 2008 takeover by oil-rich Abu Dhabi, became the English team with the biggest spending power.“Hang in there Sir Alex,” said City captain Vincent Kompany, who has won the Premier League three times since 2012. “Thoughts are with the family and close ones.”It is just a week since Ferguson was on the Old Trafford pitch paying tribute to long-time managerial adversary Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman, whose control of Arsenal was reminiscent of Ferguson’s at United, is preparing to leave the London club after 22 years as manager.The first indications of a health emergency came after Ferguson’s son, Darren, the manager at Doncaster, missed the third-tier club’s final match of the season earlier Saturday.The detail on Ferguson’s condition was limited to the statement from United. Headway, the brain injury association, said a hemorrhage can be the result of a ruptured aneurysm or a blow to the head, including a minor injury.“The long-term implications are very difficult to predict,” Headway’s Luke Griggs said. “Every brain injury is unique, as is every individual’s recovery.”—By ROB HARRIS , AP Global Soccer WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Videotape shows murder victim walking into medical students Halifax apartment

first_imgHALIFAX – A Halifax jury watched the last known sighting of a Dalhousie University student Thursday — Taylor Samson walked into his alleged killer’s apartment, but was never seen walking out.The surveillance tape was shown at the first-degree murder trial of medical student William Sandeson, who is accused of killing the 22-year-old during a drug deal.The video captures Samson following the accused into Sandeson’s apartment on Aug. 15, 2015, carrying a big black bag.Samson had brought 20 pounds of marijuana to sell to Sandeson.The 24-year-old told police Samson was shot in the back of the head by two men dressed in black who came into his apartment. Sandeson said he cleaned up after they left, and turned off his surveillance system at their request.The surveillance tape never shows Samson leaving the apartment, but Sandeson is seen carrying garbage bags and other items to his vehicle over the next few days.Detective Constable Roger Sayer, an investigator on the case, testified Thursday that Sandeson texted Samson, “I’m on my way down,” right when he is seen on video walking down a white hallway outside his apartment to go meet Samson.The jury later watched Sandeson walk out of his apartment several times, once completely shirtless, leaving an item on a shoe rack in the hallway.Surveillance footage captured Sandeson’s actions on subsequent days as well.On the morning of Aug. 16, the day after Samson went missing, surveillance footage shows Sandeson leaving his apartment early in the morning with his girlfriend. It also shows him putting items and bags into the back of his car.On Aug. 17, the footage shows Sandeson carrying more items out of his apartment, including a black Dalhousie backpack and a large white box.“These items were seized, and found to be containing what was 20 pounds of marijuana,” said Sayer about these items.On Aug. 18, he is seen carrying out full garbage bags with gloves on his hands and placing them in the back of his car.He was charged with murder the next day.Sayer told the court the investigation is still ongoing because Samson’s body has not been found.last_img read more

UN envoy cites need to deal with underlying causes of DR Congo

9 November 2009While the crisis that plagued eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) last year and threatened to engulf the entire region has eased, some of the factors that led to the fierce fighting and the displacement of hundred of thousands must still be dealt with, a senior United Nations envoy said today. “The slide to war that threatened the region last year was effectively reversed,” Olusegun Obasanjo, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Great Lakes region, told the Security Council today.“But what we have successfully treated were only the symptoms, not the underlying ailments that have led to repeated crises in the region,” he added. “Without dealing effectively with the underlying issues, peace can neither be durable nor irreversible.”Some 250,000 people were uprooted last year – on top of the 800,000 who were already displaced in the region – as the Congolese national armed forces, known as the FARDC, battled with the mainly Tutsi National Congress for People’s Defence (CNDP), formerly led by renegade general Laurent Nkunda.Months of negotiations, facilitated by Mr. Obasanjo and his co-mediator and African Union (AU) Special Envoy Benjamin Mkapa, resulted in the signing on 23 March of the peace agreements between the Government, the CNDP and the other armed groups. Among the “substantial, if intermittent” progress with respect to the 23 March agreements, Mr. Obasanjo cited the transformation of the CNDP and other armed groups into political parties, the return of many internally displaced persons (IDPs) to their homes and a “notable warming” in regional relationships, particularly between the leaders of DRC and Rwanda. At the same time, important provisions of the agreements still remain unimplemented, he said. These include, perhaps most importantly, the identification of means to foster the participation of elements of the former armed group more directly in the political life of the nation, as well as the establishment of a national reconciliation mechanism and reforms in the area of good governance and the proper control of natural resources.“That these provisions remain to be implemented represents risks to the gains that we have witnessed,” said Mr. Obasanjo. He said that he has informed Congolese President Joseph Kabila of his intention to step back from an active role in the peace process in the eastern DRC and the Great Lakes region.Also, in about a month, his Senior Special Adviser will lead a team to the DRC to make a further assessment of progress. Following that, at the end of January, Mr. Obasanjo and Mr. Mkapa, will submit a final report to AU leaders. The Special Envoy said he is now working to retool his existing support office in Nairobi as a small, dedicated “listening post” that would continue to assess the implementation of the 23 March agreements and regional rapprochement.He recalled that the relationships in the region had been so fractured at this time last year that Presidents Kabila and Paul Kagame of Rwanda would neither shake hands nor speak to one another when they attended an emergency summit in Nairobi last November.If anything gave him hope for the future, said Mr. Obasanjo, it was the rapprochement between the DRC and Rwanda and between the two leaders, the fruits of which have been seen in, among other actions, the joint operation against the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), an armed militia involved in clashes in North Kivu.“Generally, an atmosphere of détente and cooperation has developed in the region,” he told reporters after briefing the Council, adding that the 23 March agreements have prepared the foundation for peace and order on which to continue building.Also welcoming the rapprochement between the DRC and Rwanda were members of the Security Council who encouraged the countries “to build further upon this positive momentum,” Ambassador Thomas Mayr-Harting of Austria, which holds the rotating Council presidency for this month, told the press.They also reiterated their deep concern about the impact of the military activities in eastern DRC on civilians since the beginning of 2009, and expressed their support for the recent decision by the UN peacekeeping force in the country, known as MONUC, not to work with units of the FARDC implicated in grave human rights violations. read more

Beware Your digital tattoo will not disappear from the web says cyber

MONTREAL — Cyber criminals will still be out in force in 2014, but privacy is expected to come to the forefront of digital concerns.Along with scams, cyber security firms see a continued risk to citizens’ privacy with basic activities such as posting on social media sites, downloading apps on their smartphones and, of course, through indiscretions.The bad guys are trying to steal your privacy, too“The bad guys are trying to steal your privacy, too,” said Kevin Haley of the security software firm Symantec.But Haley said recent news events revealing how personal information can be scooped up online will get people thinking about their digital privacy.“I think it finally gives people the perspective, the concept, of how much information can be gathered about them online,” said Haley, a director with Symantec’s security response team in Culver City, Calif.For example, documents obtained from former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden showed that the organization gathered as many as five billion records every day from hundreds of millions of cellphones worldwide by tapping into cables that carry international data traffic.Also reported by media outlets were American and British intelligence operations spying on gamers across the world. Reports suggested that the world’s most powerful espionage agencies sent undercover agents into virtual universes to monitor activity in online fantasy games such as “World of Warcraft.”In Canada, the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association has filed a lawsuit against the Communications Security Establishment Canada, or CSEC. The group claims Canadian data is being swept up as CSEC monitors emails, phone calls and text messages of foreign targets, when those targets are communicating with Canadians.Haley said he expects privacy concerns will push app makers to offer users increased data protection.“We will see a lot of failed attempts and partial solutions. We’re not going to solve this problem in 2014, but we’ll begin to make steps and people will begin to do things to try to create a sense of privacy,” he said.Online users, especially younger ones, will move to more obscure or niche social media sites, believing they will have better privacy.“Security by obscurity, in this particular case, by using not as popular or non-popular social media sites is just not going to do it,” Haley said.People will also try to create false identities that only their circle of friends will know, he added.Raj Samani of McAfee Inc. said online users need to understand their “digital tattoo.”“When they put something or post something online, it’s there for life,” said Samani, vice president and chief technology officer for McAfee in Europe, Middle East and Africa.Samani notes that in some cases parents are signing up their children for social media sites when they’re actually underage. Facebook users must be at least 13 years old.“Parents in many cases are enabling children to be on the Internet without any safeguards at all,” he said from London.Both Symantec and McAfee said they expect to see more threats from mobile apps for smartphones next year and consumers should be aware of what they could be consenting to — such as having data and locations collected and sold — when they download an app. Some apps have a list of permissions that must be agreed to before they can be installed — and they can sometimes open the door to malware attacks.Samani said in some cases a user’s camera or microphone can be taken control of by a third party.Added Haley: “People download apps or do things on a phone that they would probably never do on a PC.” read more

Medical exams underway on staff of navy ships where asbestos detected

first_imgMEDICAL SCREENINGS ON civilian employees who worked on the navy ships where asbestos was detected are being carried out.According to the Minister of State at the Departments of An Taoiseach and Defence Paul Kehoe, all staff on board LE Ciara, LE Orla and in the Naval Service dockyard, including the civilian workforce, have been briefed on the situation to date.Answering a parliamentary question, he said that all Naval Service personnel who may have come into contact with asbestos have been screened by the Naval Medical Officer. “Medical screening of civilian employees by an occupational health practitioner has commenced and will be completed in the coming weeks,” said Kehoe.Asbestos Earlier this year while work was being carried out on both LE Orla and LE Ciara material which was suspected as being asbestos was found on both ships. A full survey and analysis of the ships confirmed that the material was asbestos.Kehoe said that the HSA launched its own investigation into the incident and this is ongoing.“I am advised that the HSA has visited the Naval Base a number of times and has served the Naval Service with an improvement notice under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005,” he said.Since the discovery of asbestos, air sampling and monitoring has been conducted by an external contractor on both ships and in the transport workshops and the samples taken were found to be safe.As part of the requirements under the HSA improvement notice, the Naval Service has engaged an external company, Abestaways, who are specialists in asbestos removals, to undertake the deep “environmental clean” of the two ships.This clean-up commenced on 26 May and is estimated to take a number of weeks.On completion of this process an independent asbestos consultancy company, Phoenix Environmental, will carry out air monitoring, analysis and third party assurance and reissue a re-occupational certificate as required by the HSA.Kehoe said that in the early 2000s, an external asbestos company was brought in to inspect the ships. The company gave the fleet the all clear,despite asbsetos being present in some of the ships.“That consultancy is no longer in business,” said Kehoe.Serious situation “I am advised by the Naval Service that a full asbestos audit of all ships in the fleet will be carried out and in the interim a full asbestos risk assessment will be carried out prior to any work commencing. As I mentioned previously, this matter is being treated with the utmost seriousness and attention by the Department of Defence and the Naval Service,” he said.Kehoe said the Naval Service will be launching a formal accident investigation team to investigate all aspects behind this occurrence and “to ensure that there is no repetition in the future”.The minister said that while the cleaning is underway, the Naval Service is only currently operating six of its ships, just 75 per cent of its resources.Read: Asbestos found on LÉ Aoife this week should have been removed a decade ago>Read: Hundreds of Irish soldiers were exposed to asbestos while serving overseas EXCLUSIVE>last_img read more

The government is backing the man who caused Alan Shatter to resign

Uncle names girls killed in Butte fire says trailer needed repairs

first_imgThe uncle of five girls who died in a trailer fire in the Butte community near Palmer Thursday said Friday that they were all members of the same family.Listen nowArmando Astorga identified the fire victims as Jaelynn Flores, 3, Sofia Flores, 6, Lillyanna Flores, 7, Nevaeh Flores, 8, and Alexis Quackenbush, 12.Astorga lives in Los Angeles and spoke by phone while in Seattle about to board a plane to Anchorage.“They were always together, they were always happy,” Astorga said. “They were sisters, and they were a family. That’s all they had was each other.”The girls’ father, Astorga’s brother, had just started a new job as a school bus driver and was going through training early Thursday when his wife called. She had left them home alone for just a few minutes and returned to find their trailer ablaze.The family had been trying to get their landlord to repair the place, including work on both a gas leak and an electrical issue, Astorga said. He said the landlord, who is a relatively new owner of the property, had been making the repairs.Astorga said his brother showed fire investigators the text messages between him and the landlord regarding the repairs.For now, Astorga said, the family is still reeling from the horrible news that the five girls died. He said he hopes to help his brother and sister-in-law through the grieving process.“My brother lost all five of his babies. And in this way, it’s just unimaginable for a parent to go through,” Astorga said.For now, the fire remains under investigation. Neither the Alaska State Troopers nor the state fire marshals office have said publicly what they believe caused the fire.last_img read more

Govt playing foul game over Khaledas bail BNP

first_imgBNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. Prothom Alo File PhotoBangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Thursday alleged that the government is playing a ‘foul game’ to prevent Khaleda’s release from jail only to allow the prime minister to settle her scores.Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Naya Paltan central office, party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi also expressed wonder as top terror, Tofael Ahmed Joseph, has been freed on a presidential clemency cutting short his life sentence in a murder case, reports UNB.He said Khaleda cannot be kept in jail in ‘false and fabricate cases like Cumilla ones’. “But the government is trying to make her suffer to satisfy Sheikh Hasina’s vengeance.””We think the government is playing a foul game over her (Khaleda’s) bail at the behest of the head of the government,” Rizvi added.Earlier in the day, the Appellate Division extended till 24 June its previous order that stayed the High Court order granting bail to BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia in two cases filed in Cumilla.Khaleda’s lawyers said the Appellate Division’s order has left little chance for Khaleda’s release from jail before the Eid-ul-Fitr.About Joseph’s release from jail, Rizvi said the government has secretly sent a top terror abroad after releasing him from jail. “What a strange matter it is indeed!”He said the government has released many other criminals like Joseph but it is keeping a ‘three-time prime minister and democratic leader like Khaleda Zia in an abandoned jail.”It’s a government of terrorists, godfathers and those indulge in illegal activities. The government is also the enemy of the rule of law and justice.”He also warned that the consequences of the government’s repressive acts will not be good.last_img read more

Guaido calls for fresh antiMaduro protest

first_imgVenezuela`s National Assembly head and self-proclaimed `acting president` Juan Guaido speaks to the press after attending a mass in honour to the fallen in the fight for freedom, political prisoners and the exiled, at the San Jose church in Caracas on 27 January 2019. Photo: AFPVenezuela’s self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido called Sunday for two new protests, in an effort to push the military to turn against leader Nicolas Maduro and back a European ultimatum demanding free elections within the week.In a video posted on Twitter, the head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly said the first of the nationwide strikes, on Wednesday from noon to 2:00 pm (1600-1800 GMT), would be one “to demand that the armed forces side with the people.”The second, on Saturday, will be a “big national and international rally to back the support of the European Union and the ultimatum” from Britain, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands that they would recognize Guaido as interim president unless Maduro calls elections by February 3.The EU was more vague, saying it would take “further actions” if elections were not called in the coming days, including the issue of recognition of the country’s “leadership.”Australia, meanwhile, said it “recognizes and supports” Guaido as interim president pending elections. And Italy has called for “a rapid return to democratic legitimacy.”The United States separately warned there would be a “significant response” if US diplomats, Guaido or the opposition-controlled National Assembly were targeted with violence and intimidation.Maduro so far has not budged from his position, telling CNN Turk: “No one can give us an ultimatum.”Nearly 30 people have been killed and more than 350 arrested in clashes with security forces over the past week.- Appeals to the military -Encouraged by the international support for his cause, Guaido is on a mission to weaken the military’s support of Maduro, which has been essential to keeping him in power since 2013.His appeals have included promises of amnesty, and mass protests to dramatize the depth of popular opposition to Maduro, who has presided over a virtual collapse of the economy and a severe humanitarian crisis, with shortages of food and medicines.Supporters circulated copies of amnesty measures approved by the National Assembly to friends and relatives in the military, but some soldiers burned or ripped up the document.Venezuela’s military attache in Washington, Army Colonel Jose Luis Silva, switched his support to Guaido in a video that called on his brothers in arms to follow his lead.Maduro appeared at a military exercise in the state of Carabobo where he called for “union, discipline and cohesion” to defeat what he called an “attempted coup d’etat.””Traitors never, loyal always,” he exhorted the military audience. Televised images showed tanks lined up in a row and soldiers firing their weapons.”Are you coup-backers or are you constitutionalists? Are you pro-imperialist or anti-imperialists?” Maduro asked.Thus far, the military has backed the leftist regime, which was ushered into power more than 20 years ago by the late Hugo Chavez, but there have been some signs of unrest.- Playing down military intervention -Guaido, 35, heads the opposition-controlled National Assembly and declared himself acting president in Caracas on Wednesday during an anti-government rally by tens of thousands of people.He contends that Maduro’s reelection to a second six-year term was fraudulent.His bid was swiftly endorsed by Canada, the United States and many Latin American countries.”Any violence and intimidation against US diplomatic personnel, Venezuela’s democratic leader, Juan Guaido, or the National Assembly itself would represent a grave assault on the rule of law and will be met with a significant response,” US National Security Advisor John Bolton tweeted, without specifying what kind of response he meant.The warning didn’t address specific groups or individuals, but Bolton noted in a linked tweet that Cuba’s “support and control over Maduro’s security and paramilitary forces” was well known.Washington also accepted exiled opposition leader Carlos Vecchio as Venezuela’s new charge d’affaires to the United States after he was tapped by Guaido.Pope Francis, winding up a trip to Panama, said he was praying that “a just and peaceful solution is reached to overcome the crisis, respecting human rights.”Maduro has received backing from China, Russia, Syria and Turkey, as well as longtime allies Cuba and Bolivia.In Washington, Republican Senator Marco Rubio, considered a key architect of the US policy on Venezuela, played down the possibility of a military intervention despite his and Trump’s warnings earlier in the week that “all options are on the table.”The Venezuelan leader earlier had given US diplomats until late Saturday to leave the country.But as the deadline expired, Maduro said he had begun negotiations to set up within 30 days an Interests Section in Caracas to maintain a minimum level of diplomatic contact, similar to the arrangement the US had with Cuba until their 2015 rapprochement.last_img

Egypt referendum firms up Sisi rule

first_imgAn Egyptian man, living in Kuwait, gives the thumbs up as he waves a placard bearing the portrait of president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi before casting their votes in a referendum on constitutional amendments, at the Egyptian embassy in Kuwait City on 19 April 2019. Photo: AFPAs mass protests rock other Arab countries, a snap referendum in Egypt has gone against the grain and cemented president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s rule for years to come.The three-day ballot saw constitutional changes sail through that allow the former military chief to stay in power until 2030, boost his control over the judiciary and give the army even greater influence in political life.Amid criticism that Sisi has silenced opposition and cracked down on freedoms, officials said more than 88 per cent of ballots cast were for “yes”.The government has “made sure Egyptians don’t see any credible alternative to Sisi so that they don’t start to imagine an Egypt that is ruled by anyone else,” said Timothy Kaldas, a non-resident fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy.The vote in the Arab world’s most populous country came on the heels of uprisings that have forced veteran leaders in Algeria and Sudan to step down earlier this month.And Kaldas said after years of turmoil that saw the ouster of long-time ruler Hosni Mubarak and his Islamist successor Mohamed Morsi, stability remains a priority for many Egyptians.“Undoubtedly some still support Sisi and believe that he has prevented Egypt from suffering the fate of neighbours,” he said.“For most Egyptians, they believe they’ve overthrown two presidents and seen their quality of life get worse each time, so there’s little faith that a third uprising will improve the situation.”Around 27 million votes were cast, with a turnout rate of 44.33 per cent, at the referendum after it was called and held within a matter of days.The amendments prolong Sisi’s current term to 2024 from 2022 and allow him to then run for another six-year term.“The country is on the right track and it’s stable… it’s logical that Sisi is given his full chance to finish what he started,” said Mervat Abdel Fattah, a housewife in her fifties.After the result state television broadcast images of Sisi supporters waving flags and blaring national tunes in Tahrir Square—the site of angry protests that toppled his two predecessors.No ‘unified’ oppositionAnalysts put Sisi’s thumping victory down to the fractured state of Egypt’s marginalised opposition and the use of state resources to back the changes.The opposition’s lack of political power and the absence of “a unified stance on the referendum” helped Sisi to an easy win, said Ziad Aqel, political sociology expert at the Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies.Especially when coupled with “mobilisation” at the ballot box by state bodies, he added.While people did take to the streets to celebrate, Aqel said their behaviour was “typical” of a political process controlled almost entirely by the state.The New York-based Soufan Center said before the vote that the amendments helped “solidify Sisi’s grip” on Egyptian politics.The absence of public opposition to the constitutional changes was “likely a result of the oppressive nature of the Egyptian government”, it said in a report published last week.Bucking the trendAs army chief of staff at the time, Sisi led the military’s overthrow of elected president Morsi in 2013 following mass protests against the Islamist leader’s rule.Sisi won his first term as president in 2014, three years after the uprising that toppled Mubarak, and was re-elected in March 2018 with more than 97 per cent of the vote, after standing virtually unopposed.His government has been widely criticised by human rights groups for the repression of political opponents, thousands of whom have been jailed.Sisi’s security services rely on a policy of silencing dissidents on social networks, which played a key role in the overthrow of Mubarak.Reporters Without Borders says there are 33 journalists in Egyptian jail—accusations authorities deny, saying they have no political prisoners.Egypt’s referendum and its outcome have bucked the trend in neighbouring countries like Sudan, where protesters succeeded earlier this month in ousting Omar al-Bashir after 30 years of iron-fisted rule.Now Sudanese protesters are demanding the military, which took power after helping to topple the veteran leader, hand over the reins to a civilian administration.That came little more than a week after an uprising in Algeria forced long-time president Abdelaziz Bouteflika to step down.Protesters there have since kept up their rallies, calling for a complete overhaul of the country’s political system.last_img read more

Fuchsias Xi editor is no longer a Google project

first_imgRaph Levien, an ex-software engineer at Google’s Fuchsia project, announced yesterday that Fuchsia’s Xi editor is no longer a Google-owned project. It is now being hosted in its own GitHub organization. Xi editor was a Google project to create a performant text editor. All editing operations are asynchronous, so the UI is responsive even when editing huge documents. It is used as the basis for text editing services in the Fuchsia operating system. Raph had started working on the Xi editor at his time in Google, where he had been working for 11 years. The Xi editor is thoroughly async with a loosely coupled design which promises performance and rich extensibility. It’s main aim as stated in the project’s abstract is to “push the state of computer science for text handling and build an open-source community for teaching and learning, and working together to create a joyful editing experience.” After his departure from Google in August, he gave an update yesterday on how that will affect Xi’s development going forward. Per his blog, Xi’s core and its Windows and Mac client projects are now under their own xi-editor organization. They had previously been hosted on Google’s GitHub organization where it was a part of Google’s Contributor License Agreement. As per this agreement, Google can use and distribute a developer’s code without taking away its ownership. The new Xi editor project, licensed under the Apache 2 license, also has a new set of contributor guidelines, which explains in more detail what their process will be going forward. Raph stated in his blog, that since he will be busy with creating a music synthesis game, he is inviting contributors to “help share the load, reviewing each other’s code, discussing desired features and implementation strategies for them, and then assigning issues to me when they need my review.” He further adds, “I’m hopeful this will grow a scalable and sustainable structure for the community.” Regarding the state of the Fuchsia front-end, he mentions that it’s still early days for Fuchsia and the platform is not really ready for end-user software or self-hosted development. “ I’m hopeful it will get there in time and feel that xi-editor will be a great fit for it at that time. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with the Fuchsia team and others within Google.” Read Raph’s announcement on his blog. Read Next Google Fuchsia: What’s all the fuss about?
