Kanpur: The Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) has asked the elected governments to guard against “misuse of power”. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, while addressing over 600 RSS volunteers, said: “Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view.” The RSS chief’s comments come days after the Narendra Modi government was sworn in, following the BJP’s overwhelming majority in the 17th Lok Sabha.

Kolkata: State Urban Development minister Firhad Hakim has asked Bidhannagar Mayor Sabyasachi Dutta to step down over the recent accusations of anti-party activities brought against him and added that the message has already been communicated to him over phone. The BMC councillors have begun preparations to move a no-confidence motion against Dutta as well.Hakim had met all Trinamool councillors of the BMC excluding Dutta at Trinamool Bhavan on Sunday to discuss the issue where most of the councillors reportedly spoke against Dutta. Hakim had subsequently sent a detailed report of the proceedings of the meeting to party supremo Mamata Banerjee. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellersThe matter had come to the fore on Friday after Dutta addressed a meeting organised by the employees of the West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Limited (WBSEDCL) at Vidyut Bhavan in Salt Lake. The employees demanded payment of DA by the state government, while Dutta criticised state Power minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay for his failure to clear the same. A rumour regarding Dutta joining the BJP has been doing the rounds for the past couple of months, which, however, has been dismissed by the BMC Mayor. On Sunday, BJP leader Mukul Roy had met Dutta at a club and the duo had reportedly had a long discussion. However, Dutta described the meeting as a courtesy call. On Saturday, Roy had said that Dutta had helped “smooth sailing for the BJP in the Lok Sabha election.” Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaMamata Banerjee had become visibly annoyed with Dutta after the poll margin of Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar dropped drastically in the New Town-Rajarhat Assembly segment that falls under Barasat Lok Sabha constituency in the 2019 Lok Sabha election. Hakim said on Monday: “Over the past few months, Sabyasachi has been constantly making statements against the party. He is hobnobbing with those who had killed Gandhiji and are trying to destroy the social fabric of India. This is uncalled for. I have always considered him to be my younger brother. It is a big shock for me.” Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee added: “Sabyasachi does not know what to do. TMC has given him enough leverage but the party’s silence should not be considered as its weakness. Action will be taken against him. Nobody should consider that he is bigger than the party.” Dutta, however, said that he has not received any communiqué from the party and would act accordingly when he receives it and added that he will leave for East Europe in a few days.
TORONTO — A complex trial involving a novel claim to a large swath of Lake Huron lake bed and allegations of broken promises is set to kick off in Toronto today.The trial pits the Saugeen Ojibway Nation against the federal and Ontario governments.The two aboriginal groups who make up the Saugeen Ojibway Nation launched their claims about two decades ago.They say their traditional territory includes what is now the Bruce Peninsula and lands south stretching from Goderich, Ont., to Collingwood, Ont.The territory, they assert, includes most of the waters of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron.The case will likely take years to wind its way through the court system.“We’re working on the schedule,” lawyer Cathy Guirguis, who represents the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, said in an interview on Wednesday. “What’s been requested of the court is over 200 days.”Essentially, two separate claims by the Saugeen Ojibway Nation — known as SON — against Ottawa and Ontario are in play.The first, which appears to be unprecedented in Canada, involves recognition of aboriginal title to land underwater that forms part of the Indigenous groups’ traditional homelands that weren’t surrendered by treaty. As far as she knows, Guirguis said, the courts have never ruled on title to lakes.Chief Lester Anoquot of Saugeen First Nation said the issues at stake are of profound importance.“This trial is not only a watershed moment for SON seeking recognition of our rights, but also for Indigenous peoples and aboriginal rights across Canada,” Anoquot said in a statement.“This is about legally recognizing how integral our waters are to us as Anishinaabe people, and how the relationship we have with, and the responsibilities we have to, our lands and our waters has survived to present day.”The second claim involves the Bruce Peninsula, which separates Lake Huron from Georgian Bay.Under a treaty in 1836, SON gave up more than 600,000 hectares of rich agricultural land south of Owen Sound, Ont. In exchange, the claim asserts, the Crown promised under Treaty 45-1/2 to protect forever what is now the Bruce Peninsula from settler incursion. However, just 18 years later in 1854 under Treaty 72, the Crown demanded the surrender of the peninsula on the basis the government could no longer protect the lands from settlers.SON now asserts that the Crown misled the First Nations and could have protected the peninsula as initially promised. The claim calls for the return of lands on the peninsula still owned by Ontario or Canada or that have not been bought and paid for by third parties. It’s not clear how much of the peninsula could be affected.Any compensation will be dealt with at a later phase of the trial.For their parts, the governments maintain they have dealt with the First Nations properly, have lived up to their treaty obligations and deny aboriginal title to the lands exist. They want the claims thrown out.Currently, court dates have been scheduled through the fall. This week will see two days of opening statements, with a week of evidentiary hearings scheduled for next week in Nawash or Cape Croker. After a week off, the court will then travel for another week of hearings in Saugeen First Nation.Colin Perkel, The Canadian Press

Credit: Gretchen Rudolph | For The LanternThe Ohio State softball team will continue its Big Ten season when it heads to College Park, Pennsylvania, to take on Maryland this weekend. The Buckeyes (18-9, 3-0 Big Ten) will take on the Terrapins (16-15, 0-3 Big Ten) in a three-game series.After three home wins against Indiana to begin conference play, sophomore outfielder Summer Constable said the team is coming in with a lot of momentum and excitement.“I think that if we were able to take that jump that fast, then it’s going to make the rest of our season even more exciting,” Constable said. Like Indiana, Maryland is also a familiar team to Ohio State, especially for Constable, who was a high school teammate of Terrapins sophomore infielder Sammie Stefan.Since 2016, Ohio State has won every game it has played against Maryland, including a 13-5 win in their first matchup this past season.Despite past records, Ohio State head coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly said Maryland is a stronger team, and is very solid and competitive. Maryland freshman infielder Taylor Okada has been the leader of the offense, leading the team with a .426 average, adding nine extra-base hits with 15 RBI. Freshman catcher Gracie Voulgaris has added 10 doubles and three home runs this season. Maryland junior infielder Anna Kufta has been the main power threat, leading the team with five home runs and 35 RBI. “They have winning records. They’ve done well in the preseason. I know in the past we’ve done well but doesn’t predict the future for sure,” Schoenly said. “We have to play well.”Last week, the Terrapins played against Minnesota and scored 13 runs, losing all three games. Schoenly said even in the losses, Maryland demonstrated the ability to put up plenty of runs. She added this puts additional pressure on Ohio State’s offense to keep up with the Terrapins’ bats.“The nice thing about playing Indiana this past weekend is that there were a lot of different situations that happened in the game,” Schoenly said. “My expectation is we are going to continue to get better and performing in the pressure.”This series between Ohio State and Maryland will start at 6 p.m. Friday. The second game will start at 2 p.m. Saturday, and the final game will be at 1 p.m. Sunday.
A lonely-hearted nurse who failed to find love on the internet accidentally killed herself after she posted a desperate last cry for help on Facebook in the hope of being rescued.Joanne Birt, 39, left her front door unlocked and posted an image of a person onto her social media page with the words “Please do not pity me I know.”But it is thought no-one spotted the message in time and she was found hanged in her kitchen by her lodger who arrived at the property to collect some belongings.An inquest heard Miss Birt who studied medicine at Salford University before becoming a podiatry nurse at Yarnspinners Primary Health Care in Nelson, Lancs, had been suffering from low moods since the death of her mother in 2006. Coroner Richard Taylor recorded a conclusion of misadventure, saying: “Joanne very highly thought of and very popular at work and very competent at work.”There are different ways people deal with grief and it couldn’t have been anticipated that for Jo her grief would manifest in the deterioration of her mental health and causing her 10-year spiral.”During those ten years she had the support from her family who she would use as a shoulder to cry on and a listening post and they did that for her. It seems to me she seemed to want help in bursts and she would seek it over the years.”This was a lady whose mood would be changing daily and the day before she did she was seen smiling driving her car. But then we heard from Mr Scott saying she said that she was fed up. These were rather unusual circumstances. The posting on Facebook at 8.30 that night.”Mr Scott spoke to her throughout the day from 2pm to 9.30pm. The leaving of the door open and expecting the lodger to come back to stop her from doing what she was doing and expecting somebody in Facebook-land to have done something.”She died because of a deliberate act but I cannot go that step further and say it was an intentional act to end her life.” She consulted with mental health professionals and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder but began looking for men on online dating sites and would then meet up with them – even travelling to Italy one Christmas to be with one.Her sister Amanda Carney told the Burnley hearing: “She was quite lonely and that did begin to manifest itself more and more. I think she had impulsive thoughts and anything else exacerbated that. She had risk-taking behaviour.”A couple of Christmases ago she flew off to Italy staying with someone she met on the internet for a few days. I find that behaviour to be worrying and risk-taking. She would sign up to dating websites and meet people on there.”Amanda said she last spoke to her sister on the phone on July 14 and added: “She was crying, she was quite in a strange way. She sounded as if she was in pain. She said she couldn’t go on. She said that she couldn’t take anymore. She had definitely got worse in the last 12 months. When I spoke to her last she said ‘I’m going to commit suicide’John Birk “I was trying to ask her exactly what was wrong. We had had many, many conversations over the years like this and I think I had become complacent about them.”She sort of said things about not wanting to go on and she would attribute them to mum’s death and feeling that she couldn’t cope without mum being here.”People are going to decide what they are going to do themselves. I think we did become complacent about it because what more can you say, what more can you do. It always needed Joanne to reach out to somebody. She had a lot of people to reach out to.”Really lots of people did support Joanne both professionally and privately. One minute she would call absolutely desperate for support and help saying that she couldn’t cope or go on. The next day it would magically all be back to being okay.”Miss Birt’s father John Birk said that after her mother died his daughter said: “Don’t worry dad I won’t be here long.”Mr Birt added: “She had definitely got worse in the last 12 months. When I spoke to her last she said ‘I’m going to commit suicide’. I said go on then if you’re going to do it and I feel guilty about that more than anything ever.”Miss Birt’s ex-partner of 22 years Fred Scott told the court that he had been in almost constant contact with her on the day before her death up until 9.21pm, with her expressing that she was “fed up” with another previous boyfriend.Mr Scott said: “She called on and off. She said she was down, feeling a bit fed up. She said I’m fed up with him. She was saying that all day really. I had said to her that if she could get control of her demons we could work something out, I always left the door open for her.”The thing that sticks out is that her door was unlocked, the lodger thought that was strange she didn’t leave the door unlocked.”Miss Birt was found by her lodger who had planned to collect belongings.

Les étoiles se forment toutes de la même façonGrâce à la première image d’un disque de poussières entourant une jeune étoile massive, une équipe internationale d’astronomes met fin au mystère de la formation des étoiles. Petites ou massives, elles naissent toutes de la même façon.”Nous avons fourni la première preuve claire de la présence d’un disque compact de poussières, aussi grand que le système solaire, autour d’une jeune étoile massive”, explique Stefan Kraus, de l’université du Michigan et principal auteur de l’étude publiée dans la revue Nature. Comme il le rappelle, la formation des étoiles a fait l’objet de débats scientifiques pendant plus de vingt ans. La question était de savoir si les étoiles dix fois plus massives que le Soleil se formaient en agrégeant les poussières et gaz d’un large disque comme leurs petites sœurs, ou si elles résultaient de la fusion d’étoiles plus petites.À lire aussiUne femme donne naissance à un bébé cyclope en EgypteCertains astronomes supposaient que le rayonnement puissant émis par les étoiles massives aurait pu empêcher la matière de continuer à s’agglomérer en tombant sur l’astre en formation. Mais l’image d’un disque encerclant de près une très jeune étoile massive vient de résoudre le mystère. Elle est la preuve évidente que toutes les étoiles naissent de la même façon. Stefan Kraus et son équipe ont estimé que le disque qui entoure cette étoile de 60.000 ans, encore enveloppée de son cocon prénatal, s’étend sur une distance correspondant à 130 fois celle qui sépare la Terre du Soleil. Selon les astronomes, le disque devrait rapidement s’évaporer avec le rayonnement de l’étoile, 30.000 fois plus lumineuse que le Soleil.Le 18 juillet 2010 à 18:09 • Emmanuel Perrin

(Editor’s Note: Wilmington’s Lou Cimaglia was finalist for the award in 2016.)SALEM, MA — Below is an announcement from Congressman Seth Moulton, who represents Wilmington in the Sixth Congressional District of Massachusetts:I am proud to announce and open nominations for the third annual Peter J. Gomes Service Award, to be given to an individual in the Sixth Congressional District of Massachusetts who best epitomizes the qualities of integrity, compassion, and commitment to community that were the foundation of the late Reverend Professor Peter J. Gomes’ teachings.The Reverend Professor Peter John Gomes was a Christian minister who served for nearly forty years in The Memorial Church of Harvard University. As a preacher, teacher, author, and leader, he influenced many with his ready wit and wisdom and, perhaps above all, with his commitment to service, whether to his immediate community, in support of those in the armed forces, or to universal humanitarian causes. As the late Professor wrote, “The very definition of service is to love our neighbors as ourselves, work for peace and not for war, and remember that the only hands on earth to do the work of service are our own.” These words, which echoed through the Memorial Church, erected to honor the Harvard public servants who died in World War I, influenced my own journey to serve in the Marines, and later as a Member of Congress.The annual Peter J. Gomes Service Award is awarded to a resident of the Sixth Congressional District who best exemplifies his commitment to service. Last year, we were honored to have an inspiring cohort of nominees for our second ever Peter J. Gomes Service Award. After considerable deliberation we were pleased to present the award to Jason McCuish, a teacher at Lynn Vocational Technical Institute, for his commitment to service and ability to inspire that trait in his students. I was inspired by many of the nominees and was proud to have the opportunity to recognize their work serving the people of the 6th District. The success of the award was made possible by the many community members who took the time to nominate their friends, neighbors, and coworkers for the award; so today I am asking for your participation again.If you or your organization knows of someone who might qualify for the award, please take a moment to nominate them HERE. Nominations should include a list of specific projects with which the individual has been involved, along with pertinent biographical details and an account of his or her vision and practice of service as exemplified by those of the late Professor Gomes.The nomination period will close on Monday, August 20, 2018. The third annual Peter J. Gomes Service Award will be presented on Sunday, September 9, 2018 and will be directly followed by a day of community service.If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Morgan Bell in my district office at email@example.com or (978) 531-1669.Thank you for your consideration and interest.Sincerely,Congressman Seth MoultonLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

It sounds like Sony didn’t like being compared to an arch-rival console, because they’re now going around trying to put forward a very different, yet very similar, message: the PSP2 will be as powerful as the PlayStation 3.According to MCV, Sony reps are making the rounds to developers, trying to sell them on the new (and still unofficial) handheld console by saying it’s got the same oomph as a PS3. That’s probably a bit hyperbolic, but Sony’s got a hard sell on their hands: the Nintendo 3DS‘s release is imminent, and PSP sales have never been nearly as good as DS sales.. and they’ve been totally in the toilet for the PSP Go.In addition to PS3-type horsepower, the PSP2 will allegedly have an app store of sorts, and downloadable content is going to be a major part of the PSP2 sales model, although gamers will still be able to buy physical PSP2 media. Release date is still unknown, but it’s rumored that the PSP2 probably won’t come out until closer to the holidays.Read more at MCV
