Kushinagar/Deoria/Lucknow: A full-scale war of words broke out on Sunday between Narendra Modi and Mayawati over the Alwar gang rape incident with the prime minister accusing the BSP supremo of “shedding crocodile tears”, a charge trashed by her as his “dirty politics”.Addressing election rallies in Kushinagar and Deoria in eastern Uttar Pradesh, Modi mounted a scathing attack on the BSP supremo and dared her to withdraw support to the Congress government in Rajasthan if she was really serious about the incident.

The BSP will for sure take an appropriate political decision in the absence of stringent and proper legal action in the case,” Mayawati said in a press note responding to the prime minister’s challenge to her to withdraw support to the Congress government in Rajasthan.

After Modi’s barb, Mayawati retorted with a list of incidents on which she said the prime minister should take moral responsibility and resign from his post. “The BSP will take a required political decision soon, but why is PM Modi not taking moral responsibility for the incidents in the past, such as Una flogging incident, Rohit Vemulla case or other cases pertaining to Dalit atrocities? Why is he not resigning?” the BSP press note issued in Lucknow said. On April 26, the gang rape victim was travelling with her husband on a motorcycle when the accused stopped them and took them to an isolated place off the road. They allegedly beat the husband and raped her in front of him, threatening them of dire consequences. Her husband claimed that he had approached Rajasthan police on April 26 after the incident, but an FIR was filed on May 2. He had alleged that the police did not take action saying that they were busy with elections. Addressing election meetings in Kushinagar and Deoria in eastern Uttar Pradesh, Modi said, “Please do not shed crocodile tears. If you are serious, why don’t you withdraw support to the Congress government in Rajasthan.” BSP has given support to the Congress government in the state. Expressing concern over the gang rape of the Dalit woman, Mayawati had on Saturday alleged that the Congress government in Rajasthan did not let the matter come to anyone’s notice by “terrorising” the victim’s family until the completion of the polling process there. “Under these circumstances, the victim and her family will not be able to get proper justice. The BSP appeals to the Supreme Court to take notice for ensuring prompt justice and strict punishment to the accused,” she had said. Hitting out at the BSP chief, Modi said, “Even the Congress government wanted to suppress the incident involving a Dalit woman as the party thought ‘hua toh hua’ (So what, it happened).” His reference was to Congress leader Sam Pitroda’s “hua toh hua” remark about the in 1984 anti-Sikh riots, which raised a political storm over the weekend. Continuing his tirade at the opposition, the prime minister said, “The biggest example of how the ‘mahamilawat’ (highly adulterated) SP-BSP-Congress alliance actually works is Rajasthan.” “When the (Lucknow) guest house incident happened, the entire country was pained. What is the reason that you are not feeling pain now. If you are so honest about the dignity of the daughters, then you should immediately write a letter to the Rajasthan Governor and withdraw your support to the Congress government,” he said. “A Dalit daughter is gang-raped and there is a government of the Congress and ‘naamdaar’ (dynast). And the Rajasthan government is not a dispensation which enjoys full majority. It is working with the support of BSP. It is busy in hushing up the matter,” Modi said.
25 June 2008The Security Council has called on Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to send a fact-finding mission to the border between Djibouti and Eritrea, where several days of fighting earlier this month led to several deaths and dozens of wounded. Council members also reiterated their call to the two countries, especially Eritrea, to withdraw their forces to the status quo, according to a statement to the press read out late yesterday by Ambassador Alejandro D. Wolff of the United States, which holds the rotating Council presidency this month.In the statement the Council also voiced regret that Eritrea has not answered the calls it made in a presidential statement on 12 June, in which the 15-member panel urged maximum restraint and cooperation with diplomatic efforts to resolve the matter peacefully.The Council, which also commended regional peace efforts, said Djibouti and Eritrea must facilitate the work of the Secretary-General’s fact-finding mission and that Mr. Ban should report back on its work, if possible within two weeks.Yesterday’s debate in the Council follows Eritrean military action against Djibouti in Ras Doumeira and Doumeira Island earlier this month.Joao Honwana, Director of the Department of Political Affairs’ (DPA) Africa Division, said the situation along the joint border was calm but tense, with military regrouping occurring on both sides and a de facto ceasefire continuing to hold.
Growth will decelerate in 2006 to 3 per cent, impacting the ability of developing countries to reach the global anti-poverty targets known collectively as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs José Antonio Ocampo told the Economic and Financial Committee on Monday. And the reluctance by some world players to adjust trade and financial imbalances could further add to uncertainty and risk in the world outlook, he added.”At the same time, the broad international economic environment does show some auspicious signs,” Mr. Ocampo said, citing robust growth in international trade as well as trade surpluses for some developing countries.He predicted “a major breakthrough” if development commitments are fully met, particularly for sub-Saharan Africa, where aid is expected to double from $25 billion in 2004 to $50 billion by 2010.But other indicators point to a destabilization of the world economy, including the unravelling of housing prices in developed economies, a significant rise in long term interest rates, and the reduction in the risk appetite of financial markets, he said.
The industry desperately needs more reliable and accurate sensors and technology solutions for tailings dams, not just general plans to do things better under existing codes of practice. Before this years Brumadinho disaster at Vale’s Córrego do Feijão iron ore mine in Brazil, on November 5, 2015, the Samarco Fundão tailings dam collapsed, releasing over 32 Mm3 of tailings into Fundão River, a tributary of Rio Doce River, overtopping Santarém Dam, and causing what at the time before the latest incident was considered to be Brazil’s worst ever environmental accident. Since this failure, new and sophisticated technologies have been used to allow for real-time monitoring of tailings storage facilities, in order to increase safety on these structures.One of the most troublesome causes of dam failures is internal erosion due to uncontrolled flow of water. This can cause distress to an embankment dam, and most embankments exhibit some seepage. However, this seepage must be controlled in velocity and quantity. Seepage occurs through the earthen embankment or dike and/or through its foundation. Seepage, if uncontrolled, can erode fine soil material from the downstream slope or foundation, and continue moving towards the upstream slope to form a pipe or cavity to the pond or lake, often leading to a complete failure of the embankment. Such a failure is usually referred to as internal erosion or “piping.” Silt and fine sands – as is usually the case in iron ore tailings – are most prone to piping, because they erode easily.SureWave Technology Ltd, a privately owned UK company, has developed a “unique” micro seismic technology able to disregard the environmental and man-made “signals” to detect the release of energy from strata under stress. Liquid movement that generates micro seismic ”waves” can also be detected. This can be utilised to monitor a structure or area for stress and/or movement of material and liquid.The system is a new application of a unique technology predominantly used to monitor mine stability. The success in monitoring the build-up of stress during mine operations is invaluable, if advanced notice to a structural failure can be given. By analysis of the source mechanics calculated by the system from the micro seismic events, it can be demonstrated that stress within the structure is releasing seismic energy at a microscopic level. This technique has been used to forewarn of structural failure: in one example some 18 weeks warning was able to be given. The benefits of this are clear in protecting life, assets and the opportunity for the mine owners to take preventative measures to prevent the failure.SureWave Technology with the assistance of Samarco and Fundação Gorceix, both from Minas Gerais, Brazil, initially set up a mine monitor (Model MM2Tri) six channel, at the top of Germano Dam, within Samarco site. Data was recorded from 7 December 2016. The system has solar power and a 3G ‘dongle’ modem connected to the internet. The cables enable the sensors to be placed 300 m apart across the dam wall. The system was moved to the second step from the bottom on the 7 February 2017. During this time, significant site activity prevented collection of meaningful data. This included a hammer drill rig working up the dam for several weeks. There was also some mobile network outages, and initial solar power issues. Between these issues, good data was collected with micro seismic events clearly evident both from the dam and the water reservoir.The Germano Pit Tailings Storage Facility was chosen as the ideal TSF for the tests to be performed. It is a 60 m high upstream dam designed so as to rehabilitate the old iron ore pit. It is used for the disposal of iron ore coarse tailings; typically sand or silt tailings that present high permeability and allow free draining of the TSF. The TSF was built with a 5 m high compacted laterite starter dyke, and subsequent 5 m high raisings, until it reached its current 60 m height. Its drainage system is made up of a draining blanket that was built underneath the TSF starter dyke. Samarco required information on any movements within the dam structure, as well as tracking any moving liquid around the dam wall. The location of any moving water was of paramount interest.The system rapidly started to detect and plot micro seismic events from the first day of installation. The locations were an uncertain factor, as the sand/silt nature of the dam creates a different velocity model for the system. In addition, the automatic process of ”picking” the P and S waves (or body and surface waves) needed significant and time-consuming changes. This work was undertaken between December 2016 and June 2017. Also, it was important to make the system universal, as it must be capable of being deployed at any such dam without further user adjustment or application changes (beyond loading a new site image and such like).“These requirements for a universal system have been achieved. Seismic events and moving liquid were clearly identified, and their locations plotted on a 3D site image. The system also creates a CSV file for further analysis if required. The site velocity model is loaded from a simple text file. However, the exact event distance, calculated from the Primary (P wave) and Surface (‘S’ or Love / Rayleigh) wave time of arrival difference relies on the exact automatic detection of the start of these waves. In this application, the first arrival of these waves is very difficult to detect, and depends on the amount of liquification of the material. In this regard, the S wave will not travel through liquid, and instead we get surface waves. These have a different velocity. The movements detected were plotted according to the source characteristics.”Material movement is plotted in red, whereas other (non-P & S) wave is in blue and is assumed to be liquid. The typical seismic movements recorded from between December 2016 and February 2017 are as shown in the main image above. The area of the water movement – shown in blue, is approximately 250 m wide (across the dam), and extends into the water reservoir some 350 m. The main area for seismic activity shown as red is a line extending into the water reservoir some 150 m.It should be noted that these locations were uncertain, and prior to the changes discussed above. Typical data recorded after the changes, and also after the system, was relocated to the second step from the bottom of the tailing dam, as shown in the image below.“The body of liquid movement is of the same area and size as before. Note it is to one side of the dam. This happens due to the fact that the old mine pit has a natural body of water closer to the right abutment of the dam – this was, in fact, one of the reasons Germano Pit was chosen for the tests in the first place, to check if the monitoring system would be accurate enough to detect this peculiarity. Some of the red seismic events are due to random activity outside of the dam (trucks and the like) and should be ignored as should any single events not forming a line or cluster.”There appear to be two seismic lines running from near sensor ‘B’, and this needs some further investigation, to establish the true nature of the event. For these dams, it would be proposed to monitor with three sensors to enable a triangulation of event location to be 100% accurate. This is a technique already deployed in Australia for monitoring large open pit walls.“For future installations, it is recommended that a minimum of three sensors are deployed to confirm and improve the location accuracy. The location of water to the dam wall would then be able to be accurately measured and displayed. The addition of the third sensor will allow tri-angulation of the source of the events. This technique does not require accurate wave detection of primary and secondary (or surface waves) time of arrival differences. This will resolve any remaining uncertainty about the locations.”“For information, this technique was deployed in Australia where drilling confirmed the event locations provided by the SureWave system (aquifer with moving water near a side wall). It is strongly recommended that the dam is monitored permanently. The system is setup and able to be observed daily via the remote connection and visually checked for any changes or significant events. It should also be established if the seismic activity within the Germano Dam is typical of these types of dams.”This article is based on a paper by Breno Castilho of Norsk Hydro Brasil, Samuel Carneiro of Samarco Mineração and Philip Shaw of SureWave Technology
Just a couple months ago, Geek.com took a look at how Samsung’s refreshed Galaxy Tab 2 stacked up against the Kindle Fire. The short version: quite well, offering comparable power and performance while adding cameras, Android 4.0 ICS, and access to all the apps available in the Google Play marketplace.One key wildcard was its price. Without getting close to that Kindle Fire‘s $199 price tag, the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 may not have stood a chance. Samsung was clearly aware that they needed to be aggressive, and they’ve now announced it will sell for just $249.That extra $50 gets you quite a few nice bonuses. The Galaxy Tab 2 offers a serviceable 3MP rear camera and VGA front camera for video calling. It’s also not limited to the 8GB of built-in storage it ships with as the Kindle Fire is, since Samsung has provided a microSD expansion slot.The Galaxy Tab 2 also packs a full 1GB of RAM, weighs 70 grams less than the Kindle Fire, and offers an IR transmitter that allows the tablet to be used as a remote with Samsung’s smart TVs. The most important difference, of course, may be the fact that users will have access to Google Play. Amazon’s Appstore does offer plenty of good apps and games now, but it can’t compete with the sheer number available in Google’s shop.Samsung’s decision to price the Galaxy Tab 2 could also have something to do with the impending Google/Asus tablet, which has been rumored to be launching at the near-unbelievable price of $150. Nothing official has been announced, of course — not even the existence of the Nexus tablet.More at The Verge

Short URL Share3 Tweet Email http://jrnl.ie/3867680 Feb 25th 2018, 10:31 AM IRAQI SOLDIER ABDULLAH lost his left hand fighting the Islamic State group but now he has a prosthetic one – thanks to a 3D printing lab in Jordan.Abdullah was wounded in a mine blast as Iraqi forces battled to oust the jihadists from Iraq’s second city Mosul last year. His right hand was also seriously wounded.The 22-year-old is one of a group of Iraqi, Syrian and Yemeni amputees to benefit from a 3D-printing prosthetics clinic at a hospital run by the medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF).“It’s not easy to replace a hand, but at least the new device gives me some autonomy and means I don’t rely too much on my brother to eat,” said Abdullah, who asked not to use his real name.Wearing jeans and a dark green shirt, he said he had been transferred from Mosul to a hospital in the Iraqi Kurdish regional capital Arbil before heading to Jordan.“Now I feel better,” he said, managing a small smile. “I hope I can heal my right hand too.”‘Stable place in the middle of a war’ The 3D printing technique allows the team to create simple upper limbs without moving parts, slashing the costs of manufacturing advanced, custom-made prosthetic limbs, according to MSF.The MSF Foundation, a wing of the charity dedicated to research and development, set up a prosthetics production centre in Jordan’s Irbid last June.A team of medics and technicians use the technique to help people born with genetic deformations as well as war wounded from across the region.Doctors start by taking photos and measurements and sending them to the laboratory in Irbid, 100 kilometres (60 miles) north of Amman.The data is entered into a system that designers use to create a virtual model of the limb, which is then printed and sent to MSF’s Al-Mowasah hospital in Amman for fitting.Several organisations have developed 3D printing for amputees in recent years, but MSF says its project is a first in the Middle East.The clinic aims to give orthopaedic care to as many people as possible affected by the region’s conflicts.Project coordinator Pierre Moreau said it had treated 15 Syrians, Iraqis, Yemenis, Palestinians and Jordanians since its launch.“We chose Jordan because we have one of the biggest hospitals and most advanced, and it is a stable place in the middle of a war region so we have access to patients from Syria, Iraq and Yemen,” he said in English.Back to school, back to work It has also benefited people born with deformities, such as seven-year-old Palestinian refugee Asil Abu Ayada from the Gaza camp northwest of Amman.She lives with five brothers and her parents in a mud house, and was born without a right hand.With her new prosthetic hand, she can now go to a normal school and even sketch drawings.Too shy to speak to reporters, she sat manicuring her artificial fingers with the help of her sister Ines.The 3D devices range in cost from €20 to €50 – a fraction of the cost of conventional prosthetic devices, which can cost thousands.“You can design something that can suit this patient and is very specific to the activity of the patient,” Moreau said.The new technique was developed by MSF in collaboration with “Fab Lab”, a digital manufacturing laboratory in Jordan.Another beneficiary was Ibrahim al Mahamid, from Daraa in southern Syria, who suffered injuries to his left hand in a bombing raid in 2013.A 33-year-old taxi driver, he had the hand amputated at a field hospital in Syria before moving to Jordan.“The new prosthesis has given me hope to be able to go back to work and take care of family expenses,” he said.- © AFP 2018 Read: UN wants war crime charges after people in South Sudan ‘forced to watch the rape of loved ones’> 4 Comments By AFP Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A year since the introduction of a blanket ban on smoking in public places, businesses and smokers alike continue to flagrantly flout the law, according to statistics released on Tuesday by the Centre for Infectious Diseases Control (KEEL), which has been running a telephone hot line informing citizens about the restrictions. According to KEEL, a total of 30,878 complaints regarding alleged violations of the smoking ban have been telephoned in to the 1142 hot line since September 1 last year. The overwhelming majority of these complaints – 27,260 – relate to alleged offenses committed in restaurants, bars and cafes. The hot line recorded 2,127 complaints about smoking in public sector offices and another 1,097 claims regarding smoking on the premises of private firm. Nearly half (46.3 per cent) of the complaints related to alleged offenses in Attica, which is home to around a third of the country’s 11-million-strong population. Another 17 per cent of the claims related to transgressions in the northern port of Thessaloniki. The remaining allegations are spread more or less evenly across the rest of the country. Of the 27,260 complaints reporting offenses in bars and restaurants, nearly half (12,502) were prompted by patrons smoking on the premises. Another 8,692 complaints were about the existence of ashtrays on the tables while 5,414 callers called to report bar or restaurant owners for allowing smoking in their establishments. Complaints were also made about the illegal segregation of cafes and restaurants into smoking and nonsmoking areas. KEEL received 366 calls regarding smoking in state hospitals and another 288 about teachers smoking at school. One positive side effect of the smoking ban, according to findings released by the Health Ministry in May is that half of Greek smokers claimed to have reduced their intake of tobacco since the introduction of the restrictions.

Samsung is expected to unveil its next-generation flagship phone next month.Members of the press are invited to a Feb. 25 Galaxy Unpacked event at Mobile World Congress 2018, where we should get our first look at the upcoming S9 handset.Samsung remains mum on the topic: The company revealed only the number 9 and the words “The Camera. Reimagined.” Which all but confirms rumors of a major photo upgrade this year.The Galaxy S9 shooter, TechRadar suggested, could beat top-of-the-line Google Pixel 2, “if it includes a variable aperture or becomes … the world’s first camera that can capture mobile HDR video.”I guess we’ll have to wait and see.The news blog also tipped a 3,000mAh battery (same as the Galaxy S8 lineup), and a $725 price tag, “based on current projections.” (That’s more than rival Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 8 ($699), but less than the 5.5-inch 8 Plus ($799).)There is no official word on when the first S9 will reach customers, but TechRadar anticipates a March 1 pre-order date, with mid-month shipping.As for the device itself, various leaks point to a preserved 5.8-inch size, though one unsubstantiated rumor hints at a smaller 5.65 inches. No matter the proportions, folks can expect Samsung to stick with its traditional curved Super AMOLED screen.The most notable change, as TechRadar pointed out, could be the addition of an in-screen fingerprint scanner.Despite years of whispers that Apple or Samsung would integrate the technology into their smartphone displays, Chinese brand Vivo beat them to the punch with its X20 Plus UD handset.There has been much debate over the inclusion of an in-screen scanner—some reports giving a positive indication, while others claim it isn’t in the cards for the Galaxy S9. Samsung has yet to verify the news one way or the other.You can scour the net for more spilled secrets, or you can wait until Feb. 25 for the official unveiling in Barcelona.

Battle Ground Public Schools on Tuesday announced a special board meeting to consider authorization of legal action to address the ongoing teachers strike.The announcement came at 5:37 p.m., and the meeting agenda contained little information. The meeting is at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Lewisville Campus, 406 N.W. Fifth Ave., Battle Ground.Rita Sanders, district spokeswoman, would not say if this means the district plans to file an injunction against the Battle Ground Education Association in the coming days.“The board is considering legal action,” is all she would say.If Battle Ground Public Schools files an injunction against its teachers, who are on strike in the midst of ongoing salary negotiations, it would be the only district in Clark County to do so. A judge ordered Longview’s teachers back to work Friday after the district filed an injunction, according to The Daily News in Longview. The union and district settled Sunday, avoiding the possibility of striking in contempt of court.Marina Heinz, vice president of the Battle Ground Education Association, said she was unaware the meeting had been called when first contacted by The Columbian. She called the possible resolution “a scare tactic.”“It’s unfortunate that the district would take us to court instead of negotiating in good faith,” Heinz said.Meanwhile, the district and union are bargaining in Olympia with support from a mediator from the Public Employment Relations Commission and its executive director, Mike Sellars. Both the district and union expect they could be in Olympia for several days.
Newly formed HowAboutWe Media announced the relaunch of recently acquired Nerve.com and a redesign of TheDateReport.com. Additionally, the company has introduced two new sites, Swimmingly.com and Famously.com–all four properties will cover different facets of relationships, sex, dating and culture.The company is named after its dating site, HowAboutWe, which launched in 2010. It’s reported that the dating site hosts over 2 million users and has raised over $22 million in venture capital investments. Last year, HowAboutWe extended its brand by developing content for couples as a measure to sustain not only its clients’ relationships, but also its relationship with clients. Nerve launched in 1997 as an online magazine dedicated to delivering irreverent and informative content about sex, culture and relationships. The rekindled Nerve will aim to carry on that legacy, but with a focus on providing alternative perspectives. Details of the acquistion have not beem disclosed. TheDateReport will continue to target dating singles. Essentially, the site’s refresh is aimed at improving the user experience with highly visual content and easy-to-navigate content buckets. The two newest sites, Swimmingly and Famously, will focus in on the complexities of relationships and celebrity couples, respectively. Both sites have a very similar look and feel to TheDateReport.

A number of individuals, companies, and organisations contributed to the collapse of the banking system and the economy, the attorney-general said on Tuesday, as an ongoing probe is looking into whether certain actions constituted criminal offenses.The investigation, launched in July this year, goes as far back as 2006, when HSBC sold its stake in the now defunct Laiki Bank.The investigation has “uncovered a complex network of companies, parent companies, subsidiaries, and affiliates, used to acquire stakes in banks,” Costas Clerides said in a written statement.The probe was also looking into the serious liquidity problems faced by banks and the possibility of using emergency liquidity and debt instruments to cover obligations and other gaps.“The Legal Service reaffirms its determination to carry out a full and thorough investigation into all the aspects … and proceed with the necessary actions when justified by the evidence,” the attorney-general said.The probe, Clerides said, was not expected to finish any time soon.Cyprus agreed to a €10 billion aid package from the International Monetary Fund and the European Union in March after its two major banks were all but decimated by their heavy exposure to debt-crippled Greece.The island was forced to shut down Laiki and raid deposits to recapitalise Bank of Cyprus — the first time in the history of the eurozone’s debt crisis.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboola

affairs there was no reason whatsoever for him to have got himself involved in a private dispute between two businessmen" he said On perusal of the case diary and the statement of witnesses the court came to know that Sivanandi had engaged some people to oversee the withdrawal of the complaints by Pandiraj the judge added Pursuant to this they went and met the advocates of Pandriaj and also went to the magistrate court to ensure that he gave a petition withdrawing the complaint and thereafter collected the documents and returned the same to Sivanandi Justice Prakash noted A case was registered on 2 April 2015 on the basis of the complaint by Pandiraj against Sujai Anand Shylaja Reddy S V Subramanian and others for allegedly cheating him of Rs 50 lakh The complainant had invested

defending an accused he said The services of the Bike Team are available for illegal dispossession of persons from disputed properties and for related attacks he said Perhaps the fear of these gangs could also be one of the reasons for the magistrates not even taking the charge sheets on file each one hoping that he can pass on the baton to his successor the judge noted in his order Justice Prakash said it was time for the high court to "seriously explore the suggestions given in the Justice K Chandru Committee report wherein the ills plaguing the magistracy in the Chennai city have been set out and the remedies therefore have been prescribed" He then directed the registry to place the case of the attack on the then chief justice’s residence before the chief justice to consider all
