Ravidas, who was the block president of the partys Mahadalit cell, was picked up for interrogation in connection with the kidnapping of a girl wherein he was not named an accused, the sources said.

Some of the villagers alleged that they have noticed injury marks on the forehead of the deceased, which indicated that he was driven to suicide by torture at the hands of the police. They alleged that Ravidas had helped the girl marry the man she loved and take shelter in some far-off city, much to the chagrin of her father who had lodged a case of abduction. The locals further alleged that the police had been in cahoots with the girls father and putting pressure on Ravidas to divulge her whereabouts. Meanwhile, DIG, Central Range, Rajesh Kumar rushed to the spot to take stock of the situation and upon his instructions, the SHO of Nagarnausa Kamlesh Kumar, Additional Sub-Inspector Balwinder Rai and Chowkidar Sanjay Paswan have been placed under arrest, a communication from the district administration said.

“The event was particularly helpful in consolidating our relationship with existing customers. Although Sussex Autoparts does not have a base in central Europe, we can utilise opportunities such as this to access customers under one roof as well as generate new ones,” said Alan Gadd, managing director of Sussex Autoparts.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) “This year’s show has highlighted the increasing demand for UK aftermarket expertise from markets all over the world,” said SMMT chief executive, Paul Everitt. “UK manufacturing has a strong reputation for producing and supplying high quality aftermarket solutions and UK suppliers are seeing the value in trading globally. SMMT continues to support opportunities such as these which help to match-make UK businesses with international customers.” “It was the first time we had been to the show and we have had a very good result with good leads,” Minesh Dhutia, general manager at KS International. “We received interest from companies from all over Europe, as well as markets further afield including Malta and Brazil.” This year’s UK group was the largest ever and received positive feedback from companies commenting on the opportunities for UK automotive exporters. UK automotive suppliers benefitted from record numbers of international attendees at this year’s Automechanika Frankfurt trade show, representing companies looking to source aftermarket parts and solutions. Supported by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and coordinated by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), the UK group was represented in almost every hall at the Messe in Frankfurt in September to secure further business opportunities and to represent the scope and strength of the UK supply chain.According to the event’s organisers, around 155,000 visitors attended the trade show from 180 different countries, representing markets such as Germany, Italy, France, China, Russia and the US. Leigh Bramley, managing director at Merlin Diesel Systems said, “We have a list of over 600 potential customer contacts from enquiries received at the show as well as further interest from existing customers.” “The level of interest in our re-manufactured common rail diesel engine product has been phenomenal. We have been getting enquiries from much further afield than ever before. Carwood was delighted with the show in all respects, the event itself and the support from the SMMT team were excellent. We have over 300 high quality business contacts to follow up with positive actions ranging from the standard ‘add to export mailing list’ through to agreed deals for national distribution of our products. The assistance in organisation, funding and administration were a great help to us as first time exhibitors and the practical aspects of translation services, meeting room and refreshments during the event were invaluable. Please put us down for 2012,” said Alan Baird, manager at Carwoods. SMMT also arranged for all eligible SME exhibitors to receive UKTI trade show grants to help the cost of attending. Many UK businesses reported significant new export business as a result of attending and are already making plans to attend in two years’ time as well as join SMMT International at a number of other international trade shows in the coming months. Kevin Rooke, sales account manager at brake disc and brake drum supplier, Winnards, said: “During the show we collected 175 contact leads from companies all over the world including Russia, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Egypt, Israel and just about every country in Europe. We have pulled in quite a bit of business already, including three new customers, one of whom has placed a firm order for over £50,000 for products that are already being despatched to Denmark. We have also picked up business from existing customers as a result of the face-to-face meetings we had at the show.” SMMT made arrangements for 52 UK companies to exhibit at Automechanika Frankfurt, including facilitating a networking reception that was attended by representatives from UKTI Foreign Posts and many of the other trade associations and overseas groups.
OSU sophomore forward Marc Loving (2) goes up to the rim during a Nov. 18 game against Marquette at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 74-63.Credit: Muyao Shen / Lantern photographerWhile the competition might not be as strong for the Ohio State men’s basketball team early on, the Buckeyes are looking to work on the changes that have come with a new season.The Buckeyes are working four freshmen into a lineup that has just three regular season basketball games under its belt.With a game against Campbell looming Wednesday night, OSU coach Thad Matta said he wants to see his team improve on one particular thing.“Movement defensively, the reads of where we are supposed to go. I think that is probably the biggest thing we took out of Sunday night’s game,” Matta said Tuesday. “We did a lot of good things but we are trying to get our guys to understand that when we do what we are supposed to do we are a lot better than when we try to shortcut stuff.”One of the things that the Buckeyes are still getting used to on the defensive side of the ball is a newly implemented zone scheme. In the past, OSU had primarily run a man-to-man defense, and picking up the zone system was something that senior center Trey McDonald said was tough to understand at first.“It was an adjustment at first for a lot of us,” McDonald said Tuesday. “But I think we just all fell in love with it and we just bought in to owning our spots and learning our spots to the best of our abilities.”The Buckeyes seem to have figured the defense out quickly as they are holding their opponents to just 55.3 points per game while averaging 90.7 themselves, good for 11th best in the country.With the competition not being as stiff in the first three games, the Buckeyes have been able to start implementing their new defense and working out the kinks.McDonald said that the new zone defense specifically puts a new stress on the big men in the paint, something he added he is taking in stride.“He (Matta) made a point to all the bigs to go out there, protect the middle in our zone,” McDonald said. “For me those are the things that, playing this position, things that you should do. It is just something that comes natural.”McDonald’s counterpart at the center position, senior Amir Williams, is set to return to the floor Wednesday night against Campbell, Matta said. Williams sat out Sunday’s 106-48 win over Sacred Heart with soreness in his knee.“He is doing good. He is going to practice today,” Matta said Tuesday. “We were off yesterday. He has been running, doing skill instruction, those type of things. Planning on playing him tomorrow night.”With Williams coming back from the injury, and freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate and redshirt-senior Anthony Lee added to the mix this season, McDonald said the competition for minutes has made things more exciting around the Schottenstein Center.“It does make for a lot more fun in practice than just, me and him (Amir) going at it every day,” McDonald said. “It is a lot more different looks, sizes to play against. That really helped a lot of us, all of us actually.”With the mix of young and old players like Tate and McDonald, Matta said he can’t quite gauge how good the 2014-15 Buckeyes can be this early in the season.“I have asked myself that question. Where I think this team is, where I think this team can be, I don’t have that sense yet. I go back to the Marquette game, we had opportunities in the first half to really extend and we didn’t do it and we go up seven at halftime,” Matta said. “Guys are still kind of feeling their way through. I think once we get a level of consistency I will probably be able to be able to answer that question better.”The Buckeyes are set to take on the Campbell Camels on Wednesday at the Schottenstein Center. Tip is scheduled for 7 p.m.
The Queen and Princess Margaret leaning against a large treeCredit:ITV “These days there is more noise from the air than in 1867, but Frogmore remains a wonderfully relaxing environment.” The monarch also chuckled when Sir David pointed out a sundial “neatly planted in the shade”.Asked how two nonagarians were still going strong, protecting the planet, he said: “We must be very lucky in our constitutions.“There are very many virtuous people I can think of who can’t walk at my age, so it’s a matter of luck isn’t it?” “There were problems in that where the palace is, geographically, there are always police sirens and ambulance sirens that make filming difficult,” he told the Radio Times. Heathrow airport is barely a seven mile drive from Frogmore House and its flight path passes very close to the royal retreat.It was suggested in 2015 that the monarch could receive millions of pounds in compensation to soundproof Windsor Castle due to the noise of planes from an expanded Heathrow.But aside from the noise pollution, the Queen and Sir David clearly revelled in each other’s company. Sir David Attenborough joins Her Majesty the Queen in the gardens of Buckingham Palace Credit:ITV In any other circumstance, two 91-year-olds strolling slowly around a garden, complaining about the prevalence of noisy aircraft would hardly be of note.But when that elderly couple happens to be the Queen and Sir David Attenborough, old friends and undisputed national treasures, the nature of their conversation is rather more of interest.As it happened, the pair’s genial chatter was marred by the aforesaid overhead din.The Queen could not contain her irritation. “Why do they go round and round when you want to talk?” she pondered aloud. “But she took it all in her stride. It was a privilege of course, a very nice occasion — and she was very gracious. “She is very unsolemn, very good at putting people at their ease.”At one point, the Queen teased Sir David because he was struggling to identify the nametags on two oak trees planted to celebrate the births of Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.“The truth was I couldn’t find my glasses,” he said. Sir David Attenborough joins Her Majesty the Queen in the gardens of Buckingham PalaceCredit:ITV The pair, who were born just a month apart, had met after the former agreed to escort Sir David personally around the Buckingham Palace tree collection.Their summer stroll was the culmination of a year’s filming that also involved her grandchildren, Prince William and Prince Harry, for the Queen’s Green Planet documentary, which follows the progress of a project known as the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, which aims to create a network of forests around the globe, second only in size to the Amazon rainforest.Sir David admitted that despite their many previous meetings he was a little nervous about the garden walk because “all sorts of things could have gone wrong.” The Queen in the gardens of Buckingham Palace Credit:ITV Poking fun at the noisy aircraft favoured by US leaders, she joked: “Sounds like President Trump or President Obama.”It is not the first time the monarch has expressed frustration about living under a flight path.Last year, she bemoaned the increasing “noise from the air” that disturbs the peace when she is enjoying the gardens at Frogmore House in Windsor.In a pre-recorded message, she told BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time: “I very much hope you have enjoyed visiting Frogmore House and garden, which holds a special place in my family affections.“Indeed, I would echo the sentiments of Queen Victoria, who, 150 years ago, wrote of this dear lovely garden where all is peace and you only hear the gum of bees, the singing of the birds.

Mining companies, investors, governments and media can expect to see more changes to the 2018 Mining Indaba programme say the event producers. “The Mining Indaba is the biggest investment in mining event in the world – it’s where deal-making happens. Projected attendance is currently estimated to be over 220 mining companies, including 160 plus junior mines.”“We initiated a series of changes to the 2017 event to bring Mining Indaba back to its roots, and to meet the changing needs of the mining industry. For 2018, we’ll be further enhancing networking and deal-making platforms,” says Alex Grose, Mining Indaba MD. The investor programme offers investors one-on-one meetings with mining CEOs and management teams. It’s a tailored programme – Mining Indaba’s in-house investor relations team prearranges interviews for investors according to their particular interest.Mining Indaba is free for qualified, buy-side investors. “That’s a big differentiator for us – the investors who attend the event have capital ready to invest in projects,” says Alex. The 2017 event saw 71% more investors attend the event, and this number is tipped to exceed 350 investors in 2018.In addition, 60 emerging mining companies from across Africa will be found at the new Junior Mining Showcase, a partnership with leading global brokers. Alex explains: “It’s important for us at Mining Indaba to support growth in the industry, and that growth is coming from the juniors.”In the spirit of true engagement, the event organisers say they are also pleased to be hosting an Intergovernmental Summit as part of the 2018 programme. “It will set the scene for African countries to learn from each other and develop best-practice models.”The event takes place in Cape Town between the 5th and 8th of February 2018, visit www.miningindaba.com for more information and programme updates.
Les australopithèques mâles étaient casaniersUne étude publiée hier indique que chez les australopithèques comme chez les chimpanzés ou les bonobos, la femelle avait tendance à changer de groupe en quittant sa famille d’origine, contrairement aux mâles qui restent davantage casaniers.Aujourd’hui, grâce aux technologies que sont le laser et la spectrométrie de masse, il est possible d’analyser les dents d’un mammifère et de déterminer grâce à elles à quel endroit il a vécu, a grandi et est mort. En effet, chaque type de sol se caractérise entre autres par des variations d’ordre atomique du strontium (un métal rare) qu’il contient. En fonction des quantités des isotopes de strontium 86 et 87 retrouvés, il est possible de savoir quelle nourriture a été absorbée par les mammifères, l’émail des dents de celui-ci contenant elle aussi des traces de strontium. Celui-ci se fixe dans l’émail des dents avant l’âge adulte et ne se modifie plus par la suite.C’est ainsi qu’à partir de dents d’hominidés bipèdes (Australopithecus africanus et Paranthropus robustus), une équipe internationale dirigée par Sandi Copeland de l’Institut allemand Max Planck, a réussi à déterminer le mode de vie des australopithèques. Ces lointains cousins de l’homme moderne vivaient il y 24 à 1,7 million d’années et il ne reste que peu de traces de leur passage. Les dents qui ont été retrouvées dans les cavernes de Transvaal, en Afrique du Sud se sont toutefois révélées précieuses.L’analyse de 19 dents montre que les individus les plus grands (certainement des mâles) s’étaient en grande majorité nourris à proximité de cavernes près desquelles ils vivaient. Au contraire, les plus petits spécimens (probablement des femelles) s’étaient essentiellement nourris en dehors de cette même zone géographique avant l’âge de huit ans, rapporte l’AFP.À lire aussiCombien d’amis peut-on avoir au maximum ?Les conclusions publiées dans la revue britannique Nature indiquent donc que les mâles australopithèques auraient eu un comportement plus sédentaire que les femelles. Ils seraient restés au sein de leur groupe de naissance ne se déplaçant pas au-delà de 30 kilomètres. Les femelles, en revanche, auraient changé de groupe pour se joindre aux familles des mâles. Ce comportement se retrouve chez les chimpanzés, les singes bonobos et dans plusieurs sociétés humaines précise l’étude.Toutefois, d’autres indices montrent que la comparaison s’arrête là. Le faible développement des canines suggère que la compétition entre mâles n’était pas aussi importante que chez les singes par exemple. L’étude conclut en indiquant qu’il est peu probable qu’il existe encore à l’heure actuelle une structure sociale analogue à celle de ces australopithèques.Le 2 juin 2011 à 14:44 • Emmanuel Perrin

Climate Change blamed for seawater woes in Grand Turk Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 12 Nov 2015 – National Parks proposes removal of popular nature sites, Outrage at some of the proposed changes to the National Parks Ordinance has forced the production of a video which has elicited the interest of thousands of visitors and residents. West Harbour Bluff or Split Rock or Pirate’s Cove is a five star attraction on Trip Advisor for Providenciales and Daniel Le Vin, a resident, believes removing the area from the protection of environmental law would be a travesty. LeVin, in his near five minute video points out that it would also be a grave mistake to block free access to this historic hot spot and highlights others including Frenchman’s Creek, Pigeon Pond and Silly Cay – all of which would no longer be considered National Parks if the ordinance amendments go ahead. The young activist cried shame on DEMA for what he called a poorly advertised and poorly attended public meeting where major decisions will be made about landmark sites.Up to news production time, there had been nearly 400 shares of the video and nearly 8,000 views.Watch video here: A video has been made showing some of these beautiful areas that are being taken from the parks.

RIDGEFIELD — Whose park is it, anyway?Abrams Park, Ridgefield’s largest public greenspace and recreational area, is the site of a miniature turf battle: Little Leaguers versus canine cavorters.Fenced, upgraded Little League fields have drawn dog lovers hungry for an off-leash area; dogs running in the baseball diamonds have spurred league officials to padlock their gates for the time being.“We’re not anti-dog,” said Ridgefield Little League board member Joseph Vance. “We’re just saying our fields are not a dog park.”“We are absolutely pro-Little League,” said dog lover John Schiessl. “That’s not the issue here. In the end, it’s a matter of public versus private.”The city of Ridgefield, meanwhile, is hunting for real estate for an actual dog park, said public works director Steve Wall.A contract between the city of Ridgefield and the Ridgefield Little League gives the private, nonprofit ball club first priority for field use during the Little League season (Feb. 1 through July 15 and Sept. 1 through Oct. 30) in exchange for upkeep and maintenance. Taxpayers don’t shoulder any burden for development and maintenance of the fields.RLL has invested “literally hundreds of man hours and thousands of dollars preparing and maintaining and upgrading” three baseball diamonds in the 11-acre park, said Vance, who is also RLL’s umpire-in-chief. The work has included trucking in sand and ensuring decent drainage for the infields, he said.“Infields are particularly sensitive,” said Vance. “That’s why you don’t run around on them when they’re wet. It chews them up, and it’s a dickens to fix.”

X Share 00:00 /09:27 Most kids, when they first see Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, fantasize about visiting a real-life version of the candy factory: a wonderland of giant gummy bears growing from trees, over-sized lollipops emerging from the ground, and, of course, that chocolate river – soon to be sullied by Augustus Gloop.And while that’s, unfortunately, merely a fantasy, an attraction visiting town for the next few weeks aims to give Houstonians a tiny taste of that dream. A storefront on the Katy Freeway has been transformed into Candytopia, a vividly colored, walk-through experience that features all kinds of candy-inspired displays and a lot of sculptures made out of actual candy.There’s even a giant ball pit filled with some 250,000 marshmallows for visitors to dive into. Ok, they’re actually fake (that would get messy pretty quickly).It’s all the creation of confectionery artist Jackie Sorkin, who was the star of TLC’s former food show Candy Queen.Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty takes us on a tour of the exhibit and talks with Sorkin about her craft.Candytopia is open in the shopping center at 7620 Katy Fwy. through Sept. 29.
