Justice at last Barasat Court convicts Manua Ajit after 23month trial

first_imgKolkata: The Barasat Fourth Fast Track Court on Thursday convicted Manua Majumdar and her paramour for carrying out the cold-blooded murder of Anupam Singha, Majumdar’s husband.The court held Majumdar guilty for conspiring with her lover Ajit Roy to perform the crime, while Roy has been convicted for executing it. The quantum of the punishment will be pronounced by the court on Friday. Singha was found murdered at his home in May 2017 at the Hridaypur area of North 24-Parganas. Majumdar had scripted her husband’s cold-blooded murder with the help of her lover. The incident had created a sensation across the state.

The victim’s mother broke down in tears in the court area on Thursday and said that she hopes that the highest punishment will be awarded to Roy and Majumdar. Several friends and relatives of Singha also gathered outside the court with posters and placards, demanding the highest possible punishment for the convicted duo. On May 3, Majumdar, a casual staff at Barasat municipality, left work early to meet her boyfriend Roy at her house. They knew each other since college. On the same day, Singha, a manager at a travel agency, was brutally murdered by Roy, the moment the former stepped into his house after returning from work.

Roy hit Singha on the head with an iron rod and then slashed his veins with a knife to ensure his death. Roy also called up Majumdar so that she could hear his dying shrieks over phone. After Singha was dead, Roy cleansed the apartment and took a dip in the Ganges on the very next day, when he threw his clothes and the victim’s cell phone into the river. After starting an investigation, the police arrested both the accused two weeks after the incident.last_img read more

Crown appeals notguilty verdict in shooting death of Jon Styres

first_imgJon Styres, a 29-year-old father of two from Six Nations, was shot dead while trying to break into a truck.APTN NewsThe Crown has filed an appeal notice on Peter Khill’s not-guilty verdict of in the shooting death of Jon Styres.A spokesperson for the Ontario Attorney General confirmed a Notice of Appeal has been filed, but would not provide further comment as the matter is before the courts.Styres, a 29-year-old father of two from Six Nations, was shot dead while breaking into a truck on a rural property near Hamilton, Ont. on Feb. 4, 2016.Khill, the property owner and an ex-military reservist, admitted to firing the gun, but argued he pulled the trigger in self-defence when he thought Styres was armed.Styres was not holding a gun at the time.Khill pleaded not-guilty to second-degree murder and a jury acquitted him on June 27.Jeffrey Manishen, Khill’s lawyer, said his client was “disappointed to learn that he will now have to retain counsel” for the appeal against his acquittal.“He believes that his trial was conducted with fairness for all concerned and without error on the part of the trial judge or the jury,” Manishen wrote in an emailed statement.“He wants the appeal to be heard as soon as possible.”Khill is also facing a $2.25 million civil lawsuit in the matter.Styres’ widow, Lindsay Hill, and the couple’s two young children filed the statement of claim, seeking damages for the “negligent infliction” of mental distress and psychological damage caused by Khill’s actions.The claim, which has yet to be proven in court, alleges Khill meant to injure or kill Styres.“The defendant did not attempt to contact the authorities prior to confronting Jon Styres,” the suit states. “During the confrontation, the defendant – suddenly and without warning – shot Jon Styres multiple times, ultimately resulting in Jon’s death.”The Styres’ lawyer, Robert Hooper, said the jury’s verdict did not affect the civil suit because Khill confirmed he shot Styres.“The claim pleads both an intentional act and a negligent act,” Hooper told The Canadian Press. “We will look at his testimony and decide how to proceed.”Khill had argued in his own defence that his four years of training as an army reservist kicked when he instinctively grabbed a shotgun and went outside to confront a potential intruder or intruders in the early morning hours of Feb. 4, 2016.Evidence was that within seconds of spotting a shadowy figure leaning into his 15-year-old pickup truck parked in the driveway, Khill fired twice from a couple of metres, one shot hitting Styres squarely in the chest, the other passing through the back of his arm and into his chest. Styres died minutes later.Only after the shooting did Khill’s then-girlfriend, now his wife, call 911, court heard.“The incident was caused in whole by the intentional actions of the defendant which consisted of shooting Jon Styres with the intention to cause injury or death,” the suit alleges.Six Nations Elected Council also recently voted to banish Khill from the community situated almost 100 km southwest of Toronto.A number of prominent Indigenous leaders have since spoken out against the not-guilty verdict and called for an appeal.Six Nations Chief Ava Hill told APTN News she was “shocked” by the verdict.“What’s that mean? A car is more important than a young man’s life? I’m in shock,” she said at the time.With files from The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Zero Mika Campaign Awareness Against Plastic Bags in Morocco

By Sara ErrajiRabat – With the Conference of Parties (COP 22) in Marrakech approaching, the “Zero Mika” campaign has launched to replace plastic bags in Marrakech before COP 22. The Moroccan Coalition for Climatic Justice (CMJC), who initiated ‘Zero Mika’, sees the rise of littering of plastic bags as a phenomenon of modern times. CMJC, a coalition of approximately 150 associations, key networks and syndicates, will organize programs of awareness by collecting trash in many cities of the kingdom. This operation will take place locally throughout different associations that compose the (CMCJ), who will organize their collecting companies.This campaign will last from the 24th until the 26th of June with a focus on “black areas,” where plastic bags are numerous. The CMCJ wishes that this project of awareness will strengthen the use of alternative products that will replace the usual plastic bags.This campaign will also seek to mobilize civil engagement in order to make the movement efficient. A call to action for all citizens will be launched so that they can mobilize for the collection operation. The modalities of participation will be communicated in the future.In 2015, the Minister of Industry proposed Bill 77-15 to bans the import, export, manufacture, and use of plastic bags and imposes heavy fines on violators. On March 24, the government ratified a decree  to apply the provisions of 77-15. Plastic bags can take 1,000 years to degrade, and can appear as a blight on the countryside, imposing a real threat to the environment and livestock.According to H24 Info, there are a billion plastic bags used every year in Morocco; moreover, without an effective recycling policy, much of the bags are found in nature, polluting soil and seeping into groundwater as they decay.According to a study cited by the Telegraph, “when seabirds, sea mammals, or fish ingest plastic particles, blocking of the gut is likely to harm or even kill the organism.”A few years ago, Morocco had prohibited the use of black plastic bags for health and environmental reasons.Edited by Kimberly J.

Cyprus talks on schedule UN envoy says

The meetings in Bürgenstock, Switzerland, aim to finalize changes to a plan put forward by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan that will be submitted for approval by the Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots at two separate referenda on 20 April. Greece and Turkey are present at this stage of the talks to lend a hand, and the two countries’ Prime Ministers are expected to join the discussions on Sunday.Should this last push fail to resolve disagreements, Mr. Annan would then step in to use his discretion to complete his blueprint, which would ultimately create a federation of two constituent states – a Greek Cypriot state and a Turkish Cypriot state – and contains some suggestions for security arrangements between Greece and Turkey.The Secretary-General’s Special Adviser, Alvaro de Soto, told the press today that the setting is in many ways ideal, since the participants from the Greek Cypriot side, the Turkish Cypriot side, Greece and Turkey are able to interact in a way that is unusual for them.”I think that to that extent, it is a successful endeavour,” he said, noting that the four parties were able to sit down together at a dinner he hosted and engage each other in a format that allowed “fluid interaction” under the aegis of the UN.The real test, Mr. de Soto added, is whether it will be possible to have an agreed text by 31 March that goes to referenda, rather than one that is finalized by the Secretary-General. “I have hope that it is possible to indeed have such an agreed text and this is what we are striving for,” he said. read more

UN rights office urges probe into Venezuela violence calls for dialogue to

Thousands of people in big cities throughout Venezuela reportedly participated in protests against the detention of student demonstrators earlier in the week, as well as against rising crime rates and increasing economic hardship in the country, according to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).Yesterday, the Public Prosecutor reported that three people lost their lives, 66 were wounded and 69 detained, as a result of various clashes during and after demonstrations, the Office added.“We have also received worrying reports of intimidation of journalists, some of whom have had their equipment seized, as well as reports that some local and international journalists were attacked while covering the protests,” OHCHR spokesperson Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva.“In addition, some protestors have reportedly been detained and may be prosecuted on terrorism charges. It has also been reported that some protesters, including minors, are being denied contact with family or lawyers,” he added.The Regional Representative of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in South America has called on the Venezuelan Government to ensure that the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of opinion and expression are guaranteed, and that a prompt, full and impartial investigation into the killings and any act of excessive use of force is undertaken. He also called for all detainees to be promptly brought before justice in order to decide on the lawfulness of their detention or to order their release. “Perpetrators should be prosecuted and those found responsible for acts of violence, and in particular deaths, should be sanctioned with appropriate penalties,” said Mr. Colville. “We are especially concerned at reports of attacks on demonstrators by armed groups acting with impunity. “We are also concerned that this situation could trigger further outbreaks of violence and that a cycle of violence may take place. We call on all parties in Venezuela to engage in peaceful dialogue to find a way through this crisis.” read more

Alumni of Brock mentorship program headed to Canadawide science fair

Pond Inlet was the site of the Niagara Regional Science and Engineering Fair.Brock’s mentoring program appears to be paying off for three high school students on their way to Canada’s national science fair.Joe EngemannDavid Irwin, Ilia Choly and Tyler Plyley are headed to the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Peterborough, Ont. May 15 to 23. All three participated in the annual Brock Mentorship Program, where they were paired with University experts who guided them through intensive research projects.Irwin, a student at Sir Winston Churchill, and Choly, from Holy Cross Catholic High School, earned a slew of awards at the Niagara Regional Science and Engineering Fair (NRSEF) on March 26 to 28. Their “ACE (Autonomous Co-operative Exploration)” project won “best in fair,” as well as six other awards. In the Brock program, they were mentored by Tom MacDonald from the University electronics shop.Plyley, a student from St. Michael Catholic High School, won four awards for “Alkaloids to be, or not to be in Catharanthus,” including the bronze medal for the senior division and the Niagara Peninsula Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association Award. He was mentored by Vincenzo De Luca, a Biological Sciences professor and expert in plant biochemistry.The Brock Mentorship Program sees gifted Grade 12 students from across Niagara pair up with professors from various Brock faculties. For one semester, participating students devote at least two hours a day to their projects, eventually presenting their findings at a symposium at the University.Joe Engemann, assistant professor of Education, started the program 14 years ago to give students a chance to flex their intellectual muscle. More than 200 local students have participated, mostly in scientific subjects. Many have gone on to earn PhDs.The program gives already bright students an outlet, he said.“Where else are they able to do research like that, that they can eventually present at national and international competitions?” said Engemann, a former elementary school teacher and one-time co-ordinator of the Lincoln County Catholic school board’s gifted program. “Some have presented at scientific conferences even as Grade 12 students.”Jessica Neufeld of Holy Cross Catholic High School, who also participated in the Brock mentorship program, received an honourable mention in the senior division at NRSEF, as well as the Canadian Federation of University Women Award and the U.S. Army Reserve Award (certificate). At Brock, she was mentored by Alan Castle (Biological Sciences).Shawna Daley, also of Holy Cross, earned an honourable mention in the senior division.

Amazingly WellPreserved Fossil Shines Light on Ancient Ichthyosaur

first_imgStay on target Dolphins and ichthyosaurs are a classic example of convergent evolution—the separate species independently evolving similarly streamlined shapes.A recent discovery, however, suggests the Jurassic-era “fish lizard” had more in common with modern whales than we thought.A 180-million-year-old ichthyosaur fossil, found in southwest Germany, provides the best evidence yet that Stenopterygius ichthyosaur were warm-blooded creatures.“You can clearly see both the body outline and remains of internal organs,” lead researcher Johan Lindgren, of Lund University in Sweden, said in a statement. “We can even distinguish the different cellular layers within the skin.”Representation of the 85-cm-long fossil (which corresponds to roughly half of the original length of the animal) (via Johan Lindgren)Fossil preservation was so good, in fact, that Lindgren and his team were able to identify blubber underneath the skin. That thick layer of soft tissue, present in modern marine mammals, suggests that ichthyosaurs had metabolic rates higher than most reptiles living today.Which, according to Lund University, helps explain the ancient animal’s almost-global distribution—even in cold waters—as well as their ability to dive to considerable depths and grow rapidly.Scientists also examined remains of the so-called “sea monster”‘s liver, which included part of its original biochemistry.“It’s truly remarkable that the biomolecules we discovered so closely match the tissues that we could identify,” Lindgren said.On a more queasy note, researchers revealed the fossils contain tissues that “retain a certain degree of elasticity,” even 180 million years after the material was fresh.Comparison between artificially matured modern porpoise integument (left and center) and fossil ichthyosaur blubber (right) (via Johan Lindgren & Martin Jarenmark)Their results, published in the journal Nature, also reveal the coloring of adult ichthyosaurs: a dark upper body and light belly, which acted either as camouflage or UV protection—or both.“Not only do the results provide insights into the biology, physiology, and ecology of derived ichthyosaurs, they also show how little we know about the fossilization process and what can actually be preserved in the fossil record,” a University press release said.“Moreover,” it continued, “they could add to our knowledge on convergent evolution, as ichthyosaurs display an interesting mix of characteristics otherwise found in tooth whales (such as dolphins and porpoises) and the leatherback sea turtle.”More on Geek.com:Whale Fossil Reveals Surprising Evolutionary StepAncient Dinosaur Movement Could Inform Modern RoboticsEarly Turtles Had Beaks, But Not Shells10 Historic Dinosaur Hoaxes You Won’t Believe We Fell For Egg Fossils Provide Glimpse Into Prehistoric ParentingBoy Uncovers Rare Woolly Mammoth Tooth Outside Ohio Resort last_img read more

Here are the highlights:What led to his WWE Departure:It was something that….It wasn’t an overnight decision. I began to feel that I needed to step away from NXT for a while and broaden my horizons and earn my stripes. Get some experience all over the world. Over the past couple of years, I’ve seen guys come in who are great friends of mine that have made names for themselves all over the world and then they come to NXT and you name it, the rest is history, they take off they do great things. I wanna say a lot of it is prior to their experience in NXT and I wanna go through that. I wanna live out of a suitcase for a while. I wanna wrestle in front of different types of crowds and try to get over all over the world, start from the ground up. I finally said, I’m 25, if I’m gonna do it, I gotta do it now.Memories of his last day (WrestleMania Sunday)It was a beautiful thing actually, my last day and I watched my best buddy in the world win the World Heavyweight Championship. What a great day. To see him go out and accomplish that and just to know how hard he worked and as long as I’ve known him. I felt good. I was happy. I’m really excited about the future so there was no sadness.His experiences with Bill DeMott in NXT:The one thing about Bill that nobody can argue about is that he was extremely, extremely, extremely passionate about NXT and he was always… you could ride up at 7am, think you were early and he was there. You could think you were leaving late, he was still there. He put everything he had into the Performance Center and he put everything he had into NXT, he helped it get off the ground and he was truly….he was proud to be a coach and that’s all I really wanna touch on.Search for Inside The Ropes on iTunes or head to http://theinsidenetwork.podomatic.com  to hear the full show where CJ talks getting to WWE, how he got into wrestling and talks more about his departure.Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipSeth Rollins Defends WWE On Two Separate OccasionsVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:30/Current Time 0:02Loaded: 100.00%0:03Remaining Time -0:28 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

CWC and Columbus Promise to Protect Consumer Interest

first_img Cable & Wireless Wins the Americas TMT Deal of the Year Award 2014 Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppDecember 5, 2014 – Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) and Columbus International today announced plans to launch a series of special “Customer Panels” in 14 markets throughout the region, beginning Monday, December 8, 2014.Designed to spark a constructive discussion about the proposed merger, these panels will present customers of both companies with a direct and organized platform to voice their concerns, share their opinions and express their service expectations. The panels will also provide the two companies with an opportunity to gain first-hand feedback to aid in the development of a new, consolidated strategy built around their customers’ appeals.CWC and Columbus will also use the panels to give customers and stakeholders a greater understanding of how the merger will impact the Pan-Caribbean region. These discussions will highlight the pro-competitive nature of this deal, as well as the far-reaching benefits it will have on the development of the region’s infrastructure and the furthering of its general information and communication technology (ICT) agenda. John Reid, president of Columbus Communications indicated that, “our goal is to meet or exceed customer expectations and place their needs at the very heart of the combined company. These panels provide an excellent opportunity for our customers to understand the vision of the new Company and the benefits that they will enjoy as a result of this merger”.While both companies have engaged in similar events in the past, these customer panels will provide CWC and Columbus with a chance to directly address this unique situation. Given their ambition to become the region’s first 21st-century telecommunications provider, the panels will allow the organizations to make informed decisions, once approvals are given and when they are ready to consolidate their efforts to make the new Company the region’s leader in customer service.

Alderweireld expecting different United

first_imgTottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld insists he expects to see an improved Manchester United when both sides meet on Sunday.Spurs host United in the Premier League at White Hart Lane in the reverse fixture after defeating the Red Devils 3-0 at the start of the season.United look revitalized under the tutelage of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho last month, winning all five games under the Norwegian.Tottenham host United looking to maintain their title challenge, which will serve as the biggest test of the Solskjaer era, and the Spurs players know that they will be facing a very different team from the one they dismantled at Old Trafford back in September.“Of course we know they will be in a better moment than they were before,” Alderweireld, said according to the Independent.“We know they have very good players and a very good team. Quality, with some special players. So we have to be tough to beat them. But we can be confident and prepare ourselves the best we can to be ready for them.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.Speaking about Lukaku’s revitalized form under Solskjaer, Alderweireld said: ““He scores so many goals all the time that people get used to it.”“If for a period he does not score or things do not go his way, of course, he plays for a big team in the Premier League so everybody expects a lot of him. But he is coming back to form. He is an unbelievable striker. I have played with him in the national team for a couple of years and he is a great person, too.”Alderweireld also revealed Spurs are determined to achieve something “special” this season.“We are doing very well, although we can do better,” Alderweireld said.“We have a hungry group who wants to play well and beat big teams. We want to do something special and that is normal. That desire is what you can see on the pitch. You see it every season we are out there. There is still some room to improve, though.”last_img read more

Passage of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018

first_imgThe Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 was passed by Congress late last week. This paves the way for a fiscal year 2018 omnibus appropriations bill to be completed in March, addresses the approaching debt ceiling, provides disaster assistance, including for agriculture, and extends the biodiesel tax credit retroactively for 2017.Provisions of the agreement that impact agriculture include fixes for both the cotton and dairy programs in the current farm bill. For cotton, the deal established a seed cotton program, which the American Soybean Association (ASA) supported in communications to Congress and both the Trump and Obama Administrations over the past two years. For dairy, funding allotted to fix the Margin Protection Program will reduce pressure on the Congressional Budget Office baseline when Congress writes the 2018 Farm Bill. Achieving both fixes now rather than delaying the spending bill until late March allows the House and Senate Ag Committees to move forward before Easter, improving chances of finishing the farm bill on time.Shifting gears to biodiesel, the funding package includes a one-year extension of the biodiesel tax credit, retroactive to 2017. While that is not the multi-year extension that ASA supports and has advocated, and while it does not provide certainty for the industry in 2018, it is a positive step for the credit to be reinstated retroactively.ASA appreciates the work of our biofuels advocates in the House and Senate, particularly Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, who pushed hard for a multi-year extension of the credit. We share his frustration that we were unable to secure the incentive for 2018, but applaud his continued leadership and the support of all our friends in both chambers.last_img read more

And there’s even a rival 3-D printer that frosts toast and makes cookie dough, also generating buzz at CES. But those might not cut it for hardcore chocoholics.Related: Calling All Chocolate Lovers: Cocoa May Improve Age-Related Memory LossCocoJet could. It spits out just one thing, our favorite treat — pure, perfectly cooled mouthwatering chocolate. And somewhat surprisingly not in Hershey’s historic Kisses dollops. Rather CocoJet, designed for bakers and chocolatiers, prints rows of chocolate that add up to a yummy medley of interlocking geometric puzzle shapes.The custom designs, none too pretty to sink your teeth into that we’ve seen so far, come in smooth dark, milk or white chocolate. Not into edgy, angular chocolate? Dream up your own tasty shapes using the accompanying software and upload away. CocoJet can handle it.Tastiest new #tech at #CES2015?

Now for the bitter, but it’s not so bad: CocoJet isn’t a speed demon. The countertop touchscreen contraption takes all of about 15 minutes to produce a single bonbon. They look like they’re worth the wait.Related: Get Ready for the ‘Achocolypse’: The World Is Running Out of ChocolateAlso not awesome, 3D Systems, which partnered with Hershey’s last year, isn’t saying when the printer will go on sale, nor how much it will put you back. We can’t imagine it’ll be cheap. Today’s hobby 3-D printers ring up for anywhere between $500 and $3,500, and those don’t even cook up edibles, let alone the most perfect taste bud tickler on earth.  Go on, get an eyeful of CocoJet in action below.

The South Carolina-based 3-D tech pioneer also created ChefJet, the gizmo behind the crunchy printed candies we mentioned above. The company’s first dessert printer, reportedly to come in — hold your wallet — $5,000 and $10,000 versions, also isn’t available for purchase yet. And ChefJet doesn’t just make colorful cakes and sugar sculptures (in flavors like cherry, watermelon, sour apple, chocolate, vanilla and mint). It also pumps out intricate architectural cake supports and cocktail decorations. Because of course it does. Keep your eyes open for ChefJet in mid-2015.CocoJet already has some competition. Print Arsenal launched an Indiegogo campaign just this week to make its $3,800, cocoa bean-liquefying 3-D chocolate printer prototype a reality. Let the 3-D printed chocolate wars begin.

Installing Timeshift into Linux Mint 182 nonBTRFS

first_imgInstalling Timeshift into Linux Mint 18.2 non-BTRFS by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on October 04, 2017 in Linux – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – 6 commentsIn a previous article it was stated that the next version of Linux Mint would include a piece of software called Timeshift, a very popular and powerful backup utility.However, currently Timeshift is not included with Linux Mint, and so an article about how to install it, and use it, is in order.What is Timeshift?Timeshift is a system backup and restore utility similar to Windows System Restore, or Mac OSX Time Machine. Essentially, Timeshift will allow you to make routine backups of your system, and restore them at any time, as well as the option of making manual backups if needed.Installing TimeshiftTimeshift can easily be installed on any Ubuntu based system by use of a PPA:sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppasudo apt updatesudo apt install timeshiftSetting up Timeshift at first runTimeshift is very straightforward with no confusing setup, thankfully. When first run, a short set of questions are asked.The first box asks if you want to use RSYNC or BTRFS, unless you are running a BTRFS system (If you even have to ask, you are not running BTRFS), simply select the RSYNC Option.Next, we are asked for the snapshot location, simply select where you want to store your snapshots, and move on to the next screen.The next window, asks when snapshots should be taken, and how many should be stored in rotation. The default settings are usually fine for most people, opting to take a new snapshot each hour, storing 5 before they are thrown away. This means that at all times, you will have your last five hours constantly at your disposal, so if you do something you might regret, you can rollback to a previous hour, and not have (hopefully) lost much of your work you did after the snapshot was taken.Using TimeshiftOnce the setup is finished, you’ll be taken to the main Timeshift window, which again is very simple to use. For the purpose of this tutorial, let’s make a snapshot, and then restore it (Please don’t be doing anything super important at this time, as restoring the snapshot will cause your machine to reboot!)Click the ‘Create’ button, and voila, a snapshot is automatically created with no mucking around. It took my system around 30 seconds to make a snapshot of my entire 600GB Linux partition on my new Desktop.Now, at the main Timeshift screen you will see your snapshot we just made (and in the future, your other snapshots that were automatically made at the times you specified, such as every hour AND every boot.) To restore the snapshot we just took, simply click the snapshot you wish to restore and then click ‘Restore’ to be taken to the next screen.On this screen you’ll be given the option to select where files will be restored (usually default is fine) as well as whether you want to keep the /boot and /home folders on the Root Device. If you have your /home folder in a separate partition or device, then change this accordingly, but if your system is not customized so heavily and it’s all stored in the same place; simply leave the defaults and click next.Next, select any applications you wish to exclude, such as web browsers, torrent clients etc.The next screen will notify you about what is about to happen, and give the typical “If your computer blows up, or takes over the world, we can’t be held responsible,” type disclaimer. Scan it over to make sure you’re all set, and then click next. You will then be given a black screen with scrolling text as Timeshift does it’s thing, before your machine is rebooted automatically. Upon logging back in, you are now loaded back into that snapshot of how your system was!Last wordsTimeshift is incredibly easy to use, and I for one am glad that it’s making its way into the upcoming Linux Mint by default, as I think everyone should be using it personally, as it’s simply invaluable to keep backups of your system.What about you? Do you use a different utility? If so, will you be using Timeshift in the future on your Mint system, or will you stick with your current way of doing things?SummaryArticle NameInstalling Timeshift into Linux Mint 18.2 non-BTRFSDescriptionMike takes a look at the backup solution Timeshift for Linux which Linux Mint will include in the upcoming Linux Mint 18.3 release.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
