Punjab CM blames Akalis for scuttling probe into sacrilege incidents

first_imgChandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Tuesday blamed the Akalis for “scuttling” the probe into three incidents of desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib and accused them of pressurising the CBI to file closure report in the investigations. During the Zero Hour on the third day of the Monsoon Session of the Punjab Assembly, he held the Akalis responsible for their “failure” to bring the culprits to book. Despite the Akalis’ efforts to “obstruct justice”, his government would take the case to its logical conclusion and ensure justice for the victims, Singh told the Assembly. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ He was responding to AAP legislator Aman Arora who had asked the state government to come clean on the closure report of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Singh asked the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), which was in power in 2015, why it handed over the probe into the sacrilege incidents to the CBI when it had the state police for investigation. “You (Akalis) did not rely on your police and what was the point in giving (the probe) to the CBI,” he asked. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K He accused them of handing over the probe to “delay” the investigation and alleged that they pressured the CBI to submit a “hurried” closure report. Singh alleged that the central agency did not conduct a proper inquiry and deliberately did not make any headway in the case on the directives of then deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal. Amid noisy scenes in the assembly, the chief minister claimed that there had been no investigation into the incidents for three years because of the Akalis. “The CBI had shown an interest in challenging the state’s decision to withdraw three sacrilege cases from it, but then suddenly and inexplicably decided to file its closure report. It is obvious that the agency had acted under political pressure,” he alleged. The agency had filed its closure report last month in a special CBI court in Mohali, giving a clean chit to the accused in the three incidents of desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib in 2015 in Faridkot. The previous SAD-BJP government had handed over the cases to the CBI for probe. One was about the theft of a ‘bir’ (copy) of the holy book from a Burj Jawahar Singh Walagurdwara on June 1, 2015, the second one was putting up of hand-written sacrilegious posters in Bargari and Burj Jawahar Singh Wala on September 25 and the third was the torn pages of the book being found at Bargari on October 12, 2015 in Faridkot. Last year, the Punjab government had issued a notification for withdrawing investigation from the CBI after a resolution was passed in the assembly. The matter was handed over to a special investigation team of the Punjab Police. Singh informed the House that the CBI’s “failure” to make any progress in the investigation had been taken note of by the Punjab and Haryana High Court while reading out a judgement in a case filed by some accused police officers. The court, in its verdict in January, had stated, ” the notification withdrawing the consent is pursuant to resolution passed by the Vidhan Sabha which in clear terms states that the investigation of cases given to CBI needed to be taken back. “Besides, during the course of hearing, this court called for the case diary of the CBI and perused the same. It was evident that investigation in the cases had hardly made any headway,” it said. Earlier, Akalis led by SAD MLA Parminder Singh Dhindsa said the investigation into sacrilege incidents was handed over to the CBI by previous SAD-BJP government on the demand of Sant Samaj, Panthia organisations, the AAP and the Congress. The chief minister directed the advocate general to oppose the closure report in the CBI court, saying the agency had no jurisdiction to file the report in the light of the observations made by the high court, an official spokesperson said. Singh issued the directive on basis of the judicial and legal position shared with him by Advocate General Atul Nanda after a detailed examination of the facts and circumstances preceding the closure report, the spokesperson said.last_img read more

UN agency lauds Tanzanias move to naturalize 1972 Burundian refugees

The High Commissioner for Refugee António Guterres, who was at a Burundian settlement in Tanzania when the first formal notification list was posted, called the move an “historic action.”He urged the international community to recognize Tanzania’s gesture and appealed to donors to ensure that the process of integrating the citizens is successful. Some 162,000 people will be affected by the move, Melissa Fleming, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), said today in Geneva. Known as the “1972 Burundians,” the group of primarily Hutu ethnicity fled Burundi in 1972 after a campaign of violence by the country’s Tutsi-dominated Government at the time.An estimated 200,000 people were killed in ethnic violence and hundreds of thousands of people escaped to neighbouring countries, including Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Rwanda and Zambia.In 2008 the Tanzanian Government offered the refugees a choice of either being repatriated or applying for citizenship. In addition to the 1972 Burundians, Tanzania has housed hundreds of thousands of Congolese refugees and other Burundians who fled during the civil war in the 1990s. In 2000, Tanzania had the largest refugee population in Africa with 680,000 people in camps near its northwest border.Since national reconciliation in Burundi – supported by the UN peacekeeping operation there (ONUB) – some 500,000 refugees have returned home. 16 April 2010The top United Nations refugee official praised today Tanzania’s decision to grant citizenship to tens of thousands of Burundian refugees who fled their homeland some 38 years ago. read more

Expert panel at UN on womens rights finds mixed progress chairperson

“We welcome the fact that in almost all countries, there are new laws and legal reforms and efforts to strengthen those national machineries for women,” Feride Acar told a press briefing. “There is a significant improvement in efforts to implement the Convention, both de facto and de jure, in all States parties that we examined.”The Committee, which monitors implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, is examining reports from Belarus, Bhutan, Ethiopia, Germany, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal and Nigeria during the current session, which ends on Friday.”We also once again noted that one of the major difficulties with women’s human rights right now on the basis of these reports is that there continues to be the persistence of stereotypes,” Ms. Acar continued. Entrenched stereotypes may manifest in different ways, “but nonetheless there is a commonality in being disadvantageous for women and discriminatory towards women.”She hailed evidence of “significant efforts” to incorporate the Convention’s principles into the national domestic laws, and noted that a number of national courts have recently made explicit reference to the Convention when ruling on discrimination cases.”More and more, States are adopting laws against violence against women, including domestic violence,” she said, while cautioning that much needs to be done “at the stage of implementation.” read more

Beaudier will control 41.1 per cent of the total voting power while the Caisse will control 8.9 per cent of votes.Beaudier Inc. is a family-owned company controlled by Laurent Beaudoin, who is a former CEO of Bombardier Inc. and a son-in-law of Joseph-Armand Bombardier, the Quebec inventor who founded the company.The prospectus also revealed the company paid $376 million in special distributions on April 13 and an additional $153 million in dividends to its current shareholders on April 30.It doesn’t intend to initially pay a dividend after the IPO.Based in Valcourt, Que., BRP has approximately 6,800 employees around the world. by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted May 22, 2013 10:38 am MDT read more

Addressing Economic and Social Council UN deputy chief advocates true global pact

“The year 2015 presents an historic test and challenge for the international community and national institutions. We are embarking on a voyage of transformative change affecting all sectors of our societies. This change must be built on universality, sustainability and acceptance of interdependence as a win-win proposition for both nations and people,” said Mr. Eliasson in opening remarks to the special meeting convened by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).Held in March 1995 in Copenhagen, the World Summit for Social Development was the largest gathering ever of world leaders at that time. By putting people centre stage, the Summit pledged to make the conquest of poverty, the goal of full employment and the fostering of social integration overriding objectives of development.The commemorative meeting also heard opening remarks from ECOSOC Vice-President Oh Joon, who said that without doubt, the Social Summit was one of the major building blocks in establishing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and the integrated approach advocated at the Summit contributed to the common understanding on the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development and the need for a balanced integration of these three dimensions. Mr. Eliasson stressed that today’s event provides an opportunity for reflection on progress […] as well as on remaining challenges and the road ahead,” especially in promoting social progress, social inclusion and social justice. “Peoples’ needs, rights and aspirations are the glue that should bind together […] efforts at local, national, regional and international levels.”Advances have been made in health and education, assured Mr. Eliasson, who also noted that a smaller proportion of the world’s population now lives in extreme poverty than 15 years ago.“Yet, more than a billion people still live in extreme poverty”, he explained. “Inequality tends to be systemic and is in many cases widening to an alarming degree. Economic opportunities for women and girls are lacking in far too many places. Environmental degradation and climate change threaten the basis of healthy lives and even our survival. We certainly do not live in peace and harmony with Nature. We are endangering the lives of future generations.”Unemployment remains high, observed the Deputy Secretary-General. Globally, he said, as many as 73 million young people are looking for jobs people, three times more likely than adults to be unemployed. “When young people sense frustration and anger at a glaring lack of opportunity, they are more likely to lose faith in government and in institutions. In many parts of the world, this leaves young people receptive and vulnerable to marginalisation and radicalisation.”That is why a set of new sustainable development goals, “universal, people-centred and cross-cutting in nature,” are needed, continued Mr. Eliasson. After the Third World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, which was held in Sendai, Japan, last March, three major international decision-making processes are ahead before the end of the year: the Third International Financing for Development Conference in July, in Addis Ababa; a UN summit to adopt the post-2015 development agenda in September in New York; and the UN climate change conference in December, in Paris. “As was the case with the development conferences of the 1990s, the outcomes of these key meetings will affect global political, economic, social and environmental priorities and policies for many, many years to come. These processes must complement and support each other.“Let us use the lessons of the past to ensure a better future for all. No one must be left behind on our common voyage.”Echoing that call, ECOSOC Vice-President Mr. Oh said that over the past 20 years, the international community had learned that economic and social development and the well-being of all people and the planet are all inter-related and mutually reinforcing.“ECOSOC is mandated to identify emerging challenges and promoting reflection, debate and innovative thinking, as well as achieving a balanced integration of the three dimensions of sustainable development,” he said, reaffirming on behalf of the UN body’s Bureau, the Council’s commitment in carrying out its work in the post-2015 era, keeping the lessons of the pioneers in the Social Summit in mind. read more

Opinion 5 questions for Buckeyes matchup with Indiana

Sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott warms up before a game against Minnesota on Nov. 15 in Minneapolis. OSU won. 31-24.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorThe Ohio State football team has two games left on its schedule, but the Buckeyes know a win — or a Michigan State loss — will give them a third.OSU (9-1, 6-0) is set for a shot to seal a trip to the Big Ten Championship Game against Indiana on Saturday at Ohio Stadium, but when it comes time for the noon kickoff, nothing will be a given.The Lantern sports editors picked five key questions needing answers as the Buckeyes look to book their ticket to Indianapolis and the Hoosiers try to delay their trip.1. Will sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott become coach Urban Meyer’s second 1,000-yard rusher?Chances are Elliott — who has accumulated 954 rushing yards on 167 carries this season — will break the 1,000-yard barrier this season. But if the Buckeyes establish the run game early, he could do it in the first quarter against Indiana.There’s no guarantee, but Elliott’s strong play in recent weeks has been key to OSU’s offensive attack. As he closes in on a career milestone, there’s no reason for the coaching staff to go away from him if he’s playing well from the start.Former Buckeye Carlos Hyde became Meyer’s first-ever 1,000-yard rusher last season, against Indiana, and Elliott — especially in recent weeks — has compared favorably to Hyde’s play.If he doesn’t pick up the necessary 46 yards, OSU won’t be guaranteed a loss. But a big win for the Buckeyes could come behind a big day from Elliott.2. Will playing at home help the Buckeyes eliminate mistakes?OSU is coming off of consecutive road wins against teams ranked in the top 25 of the College Football Playoff standings, but that doesn’t mean the team was flawless against Michigan State and Minnesota.First-half turnovers against Michigan State allowed the Spartans to take a 21-14 lead early on, but the OSU offense found a way to make up for it to take a 28-21 lead into the half. Against Minnesota, a pair of lost fumbles and an interception allowed the Golden Gophers to stay within three at halftime and eventually keep the game within seven when the clock ran out.Both games were played on the road — and the Minnesota game was played in below-20-degree temperatures — but many of the mistakes were still avoidable. Redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall’s two fumbles lost against the Golden Gophers almost single-handedly kept the game close, while the Buckeyes’ offensive explosion helped overcome some big plays given up after turnovers against Michigan State.Returning to Ohio Stadium might be the perfect remedy for OSU’s turnover issues, and if that’s the case, the Buckeyes could be in for a commanding win.3. How many yards will Indiana junior running back Tevin Coleman gain?Meyer said it best during Tuesday’s Big Ten teleconference: Coleman is “ridiculous.”The Hoosier running back is the focal point of the offense, and has carried the load with 214 carries totaling 1,678 yards so far this season. He’s also got 12 touchdowns on the ground, and is coming off a 307-yard performance in a loss to Rutgers last week.It’s hard to say how Indiana managed to lose a game when its running back put up that many yards on the ground, but Coleman getting rolling is one of the few things likely to keep Indiana in the game against OSU.4. Can Indiana freshman quarterback Zander Diamont step up in the Horseshoe?The Hoosiers entered the season with an experienced junior quarterback under center, but since junior Nate Sudfeld went down with a season-ending shoulder injury after playing in six games, Diamont has gotten the call.Sudfeld threw for 1,151 yards and six touchdowns to just three interceptions before getting hurt, and Diamont hasn’t come close to replicating those numbers.  In the first two games of his collegiate career — consecutive losses to Michigan State and Michigan by a combined 63 points — Diamont completed a grand total of 10 passes on 23 attempts. Those 10 completions totaled just 35 yards and no touchdowns. He didn’t throw his first touchdown until his fourth game, and has completed just 46.9 percent of his passes as a Hoosier. Diamont starting wasn’t in Indiana’s this season, and having him start against the No. 6 Buckeyes could be too tall of a task. If he struggles from the start, expect the OSU defense to bring pressure early and often and force at least a few mistakes from the freshman signal caller.5. Can the J.T. Barrett and Joey Bosa combination continue to impress?The 2013 recruiting classmates have arguably been the top two players not only on the OSU team, but in the Big Ten as well. Thursday afternoon, Bosa was named a finalist for the Lombardi Award, which is given to the best lineman or linebacker in the country, while Barrett has the third-best odds to win the Heisman Trophy (15/1 as of Thursday evening) according to Bovada.com, an online gambling site. Both are coming off big games individually as Bosa recorded a season-high seven tackles in a 31-24 win over Minnesota and Barrett broke three school records including longest rush by a quarterback (86), most rushing yards in a game by a quarterback (189) and touchdowns responsible for in a season (38). Bosa will need to play one of his better games in order to shut down Coleman, as he said Wednesday that the goal of the defense is to hold the Indiana back under 100 yards. If Barrett can continue to play like he has since the loss to Virginia Tech, there is a very good chance he could be on a flight to New York City for the Heisman Trophy ceremony in early December. read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse finding its identity through defense

Credit: Jenna Leinasars | Multimedia EditorIf there’s a word to describe what a lacrosse defense needs, it is unity.In almost any team-oriented sport, it is difficult to win if the team is not playing with unity on the defensive side of the ball. While one player might be able to carry the load offensively at times, an out-of-sync defense usually spells disaster.Unity is one thing that the Ohio State men’s lacrosse defense has prided itself on this year.After losing two of the top three goal scorers from last year in Jesse King and David Planning, OSU coach Nick Myers said the players on defense knew they would have to rely on each other in order to help an offense with a lot a fresh faces.“I think it’s big … anytime that you have relationships that you can lean on, that you have confidence in each other,” Myers said. “A lot of defense, and a lot of high-level defense, is trust and communication.”OSU’s scoring defense currently ranks in the top 20 in the nation, only allowing nine goals per game. Senior defensive midfielder and co-captain Kacy Kapinos said he and his teammates have a special relationship that allows them to find their best stuff.“We have that comfort level with each other where we play together, and we can also push each other,” Kapinos said.The starters that make up the defensive side of the ball — seniors Robby Haus and Chris Mahoney, sophomore Erik Evans and redshirt junior goalie Tom Carey — have had the opportunity to play together for more than a year now, helping to create that unity every defense needs.”It’s really beneficial for us. I think me and Chris have been there for the longest amount of time, so we have a really good relationship. Then Tommy came in and we hit it off immediately,” Haus said. “Erik is a young guy, but he acts a lot older than he is, and I think being around some of these seniors and redshirt juniors has helped him a lot.“Our chemistry is awesome.”Carey continued, elaborating on what experience playing with each other means as opposed to playing with freshmen on the team.“I think the relationships we have with one another — (Robby) and I, and Chris and Evans, too — (they) just allow us to hold each other to a little bit different standard than the first-year guys,” Carey said.Those first-year guys, like freshmen midfielders Logan Maccani and Noah Best, have had a great mentor in Kapinos, Haus said.“I know we’re trying to develop some young faces at the defensive midfield, and he’s done a really good job bringing them in and building chemistry with them,” Haus said.OSU senior defender Chris Mahoney (21) during a game against Notre Dame on March 26 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Cameron Carr | Lantern PhotographerCommunication has been essential in the OSU defense’s success this year. Lacrosse is a sport that involves a lot of switching, commonly referred to as sliding.If an on-ball defender lets his man get past him, the defender has to be ready to slide in order to double team the ball-carrier. Then the whole defense has to slide in order to cover the now-open man. It’s a complicated process, one that would result in allowing a goal without constant communication, Kapinos said.“It’s just keeping everybody on the same page so that we’re all organized and making sure that we’re all doing the same thing,” Kapinos said. “You can’t have one guy doing one thing and five guys doing the other.”A lot of what the defense does is communicated by the goalie, and Kapinos said Carey is excellent at his job.“It helps with Tommy in the goal,” Kapinos said. “Tommy gives us a lot of communication and kind of quarterbacks the defense.”The Buckeyes are set to commence Big Ten play on Sunday. They’re scheduled to face a No. 18 Penn State team that ranks 12th in the nation with 12.67 goals per game.The team will be trying to sever its four-game losing streak, including a 15-6 loss to No. 1 Denver in which OSU gave up eight fourth-quarter goals after only being down 7-5 heading into the final period.Carey said he blames himself for the fourth quarter meltdown but said the defense as a unit cannot be making so many mistakes.“I think a lot of that falls back on me, and at the same time we play as a unit,” Carey said. “So, I’ve got to be a lot better, but we have to be better as a whole unit in stopping shots, getting the ball up and out in transition and … getting back to the basics and getting better every single day.”With the chances of an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament dwindling, the Scarlet and Gray will need to turn things around quickly in order to be invited to the Big Ten tournament. A Big Ten championship would give the Buckeyes an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.However, it will take the whole defense, and, really, the whole team, in order to make this happen.“You’re only as strong as your weakest link,” Haus said. read more

Pochettino doesnt mind if Eriksen leaves Tottenham

first_imgTottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino, already revealed that his squad won’t make a huge drama if Christian Eriksen ends up leaving.Tottenham Hotspur has been struggling lately with the dilemma of not knowing if midfielder Christian Eriksen will extend his contract or leave, the Danish player has many offers on the table and there is no certainty that he will remain at the club regardless of what Mauricio Pochettino does.The Argentine manager is well aware of this and has already hinted that the club won’t mind letting him leave if things don’t work out, essentially confirming that they don’t consider him an integral part of the Spurs.“Football is so dynamic, always changing every day. It’s not only your decision but the player’s decision,” said Pochettino via Four Four Two.“Now is a moment to enjoy our present. Players like him are focused on doing a good job and the performances that we need. A decision is going to happen at the end of the season or the next few days.”“Football is so dynamic: it’s about decision, decision, decision, decision. We hope we are going to take the best decision for the club, that the player can take the best decision for their future and the club.”“It’s about negotiation, about many things that happen. Football is so dynamic; you always need to move on.”Pochettino took the time to reflect on how well the squad has grown in the last few years under his tutelage, almost daring Eriksen to leave and regret it for the rest of his career.“We created together a massive platform. The players are enjoying that platform; the fans are enjoying it,” he added.“Four and a half years ago, it was a difficult start for everyone. Every single press conference in the first six months was about ‘how’: ‘How [to] reduce the gap to the top six? How [to] reduce the gap to the top four? How to be competitive in the big games, be consistent, how, how, how, how?’”Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“The last step is the most difficult. It looks so close, but sometimes it’s not so close. That’s why it’s tough to keep going, but we have the energy and we want to try.”“We are competing with big, big sides. We believe in our quality and in the way that we play but when you compete in the Premier League, it’s always difficult,” he continued.“We need to be ready again to compete against Bournemouth. If we are able to cross that line, to stop thinking of that [last] result and be focused and consistent in the next game, maybe we are ready to win [a trophy].”“But this season is a challenge. I told you in the first press conference after the World Cup that this would be the most difficult season for us.”“We’re in a very good position, in the last 16 of the Champions League, semi-final of the [EFL] Cup, we haven’t started the FA Cup but we’re third in the Premier League.”“The circumstances were not the best to start the season, but we fight a lot and we’re doing a fantastic job, but you need to start to prepare the game against Bournemouth because the competition doesn’t wait for you. You need to show again your quality,” he concluded.Christian Eriksen pic.twitter.com/y6sxvYYVQT— dantt (@noamsupernova) December 25, 2018last_img read more

Although not the first to try to appeal to active lifestyles (Samsung has a “super steady” feature on its latest phones for this purpose), the One Action is using its physical camera hardware rather than just software for its headline trick.  Aug 31 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumors Motorola One Action packs a GoPro-like camera for active… See All Post a comment Mobile Phones reading • Motorola One Action is a phone with a GoPro-like camera Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? Flanked by a main 12-megapixel shooter and 5-megapixel depth camera for better portraits, the middle sensor on the One Action is a 16-megapixel lens with a 117-degree ultrawide view. Motorola has also positioned it so that the lens will record landscape video even while the phone is being held vertically.The goal is to give an easier, more natural way to capture wide-screen videos and hold your phone, while partaking in these more adventurous activities.  motorola-one-action-2The Motorola One Action has three cameras, with the middle rear camera acting as the “action” lens with a 117-degree ultrawide lens.   Lori Grunin/CNET The action camera also takes advantage of video stabilization and pixel binning (or as Motorola calls it, Quad Pixel), combining multiple pixels together for better low-light capture. The end result is a 4-megapixel shot. Beyond the cameras, the One Action features an edge-to-edge 6.3-inch full HD+ display with a cutout for the 12-megapixel front camera in the upper left corner. Motorola One Action specs6.3-inch FHD+ (1,080×2,520) display with a 21:9 aspect ratio2.2GHz Samsung Exynos 9609 octa-core processor128GB of storage (expandable via microSD) with 4GB of RAM12MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, 1.25μm, PDAF; 5MP depth sensor; 16MP action camera ultrawide 117-degree field of view, Quad Pixel pixel binning, 2.0μm and f/2.2 aperture.3,500mAh battery with 10-watt fast charging3.5mm headphone jackUSB-CBluetooth 5.0Fingerprint sensor on the backSplash resistanceAndroid 9 Pie (upgradable to Android Q)motorola-one-action-3The front camera cutout on the Motorola One Action.  Lori Grunin/CNET In briefly using the phone, I found it feels significantly more premium than the company’s budget Moto E6. The glass back and higher-resolution display both look nice, though the cutout for the camera is a bit thicker than ones found on Samsung’s Galaxy S10 line. I didn’t have a good environment to really try out the action camera, but in quick use, it seemed to do its job recording video as promised. While it is nice that it records in wide-screen (horizontal video) while held vertically, flipping the phone horizontally will actually make that camera record vertically. So there could be a potential learning curve there.The One Action will be available Friday in Brazil, Mexico and “various European countries” for €259 (roughly $290, £235, AU$425) in either denim blue, pearl white or aqua teal. A US release is slated for October, though it won’t include the aqua teal color option and pricing for the US version hasn’t been announced.  Share your voicelast_img read more

Sullivan US economy nothing to boast about

first_imgU.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan (File photo by Skip Gray/360 North)U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan gave the weekly Republican address on Saturday. The Alaska senator took the opportunity to bash President Obama for what he says is poor economic growth, more reliance on food stamps and a drop in homeownership.“We can do so much better for America,” Sullivan said. “But President Obama tells us differently. He lowers expectations by calling his very weak economic record the ‘new normal.’ He has even taken to bragging about his administration’s economic record.”Sullivan did not list solutions in the five-minute speech but did say it’s important to recognize a problem.“Strong economic growth made the United States the greatest country on Earth,” Sullivan said. “We have a moral imperative to recognize that we have experienced a lost decade of economic growth and opportunity, and we have to change this.” President Obama, in a recent press conference, painted a much different picture, saying the U.S. has enjoyed record job growth and rising wages, despite a grim economy overseas.“We’ve got to do everything we can to strengthen the good trends and to guard against some dangerous trends in the global economy,” Obama said May 6. “And if the Republican Congress joined us to take some steps that are pretty common-sense, then we could put some additional wind at the backs of working Americans.”Obama says Congress should fund infrastructure and raise the federal minimum wage.last_img read more

Five held for cricket betting

first_imgSrikakulam: Rajam police arrested five persons in connection with cricket betting. Speaking to media here on Thursday, Superintendent of Police R N Ammi Reddy said that the betting gang had been operating from Rajam town. The arrested have been identified as G Durga Rao, K Simhachalam, G Anil Kumar, L Appala Naidu and A Bhagavan, he said and added all accused were hailing from Rajam area. The five accused were formed as a gang and calculated ratings prior to betting and inform to interested persons that betting in favour of which team will be beneficial, the SP said. It is nothing but a gambling and illegal, SP stated. For earning money in an easy way and in short span, youth being attracted towards these illegal activities, SP expressed concern. Additional SP G Ganga Raju and Rajam CI G Soma Sekhar also participated.last_img read more

Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack rerecorded by one guy

first_imgFreed from the confines of the MIDI sound system, video games these days more often than not have soundtracks provided by full, classically-recognized orchestras instead of a single part-time musician hammering away on a keyboard in the confines of his garage. Is it really necessary though? We also live in the days of impressive prosumer music editing suites, like Apple’s Garage Band or Adobe‘s own music suite. AdChoices广告As proof that you don’t need an orchestra to recreate even the most sweeping video game score, musician Diwa de Leon has single-handedly recreated the sound track to the Nintendo Wii classic, Super Mario Galaxy, using a combination of his camera, his a capella voice, his violin, a hegalong, a djembe, a tambourine and a guitar… all overlaid and intermixed to pull of a note perfect recreation of the Gutsy Gardens track originally composed by Mahito Yokota and Koji Kondo.

Astronomers detect Xray emitting clumps ejected from the binary PSR B1259–63LS 2883

first_img Pulsar punches hole in stellar disk More information: George G. Pavlov et al. High-speed Ejecta from the Gamma-ray Binary PSR B1259-63/LS 2883. arXiv:1903.00781 [astro-ph.HE]. arxiv.org/abs/1903.00781 Located around 8,800 light-years away in the constellation Crux, PSR B1259–63/LS 2883 is a binary with an orbital period of approximately 3.4 years, composed of a rotation-powered pulsar named PSR B1259-63 and a fast-rotating blue star of spectral type O9.5Ve, designated LS 2883. The pulsar is known for its emission of very high energy (VHE) gamma-rays, which varies on a timescale of several days.Now, a team of astronomers led by George G. Pavlov of Pennsylvania State University reports the detection of X-ray emission having its source in ejecta from PSR B1259–63/LS 2883. The emission was spotted by Chandra’s Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS) during observations of this system between 2010 and 2017. Images from the space telescope clearly show X-ray-emitting clumps moving from the binary.”In this work, we describe the main properties of the X-ray emitting ejecta detected in a series of high-resolution Chandra observations during two binary cycles,” the astronomers wrote in the paper.During observations conducted between 2010 and 2014, the scientists have identified a southward extension in the X-ray image of PSR B1259–63/LS 2883 when the binary was close to its apastron. Another clump, apparently moving in the same direction, was spotted during the next binary cycle between 2014 and 2017.According to the paper, the clumps were moving from the binary with apparent velocities at a level of around 10 percent the speed of light, possibly with a significant acceleration. The research found that the clump detected in the 2010-2014 cycle faded with increasing separation from the binary, while the second clump brightened almost two times in one of the observations.Trying to find the most plausible explanation for the nature of the clump X-ray emission, Pavlov’s team noted that it could be produced by relativistic electrons, likely supplied by the pulsar. They added that in that case, the possible emission mechanisms are synchrotron radiation in the clump’s magnetic field and inverse Compton scattering of ultraviolet photons from the luminous high-mass companion off the relativistic electrons. According to the researchers, the collected data favors the synchrotron mechanism scenario.Furthermore, studying the motion and evolution of the clumps, the astronomers found the lack of any deceleration of these features. This indicates an extremely low density of the ambient medium.”Such a medium could be created by the pulsar wind, which sweeps out the matter of the stellar wind bubble in a cone confined by the shock that separates the colliding stellar and pulsar winds,” the paper reads.Therefore, the authors of the study concluded that the clumps ejected from PSR B1259–63/LS 2883 are likely composed of a mixture of stellar matter with the shocked pulsar wind, noting that they are formed by the complex interaction of the stellar and pulsar winds.

A giant compared to its direct competitors, the Asus Chromebook C523NA flaunts a large 15.6-inch, 1080p panel. You get that crisp display along with an aluminum chassis and good performance for just $349. However, the C523NA’s short battery life damages its strong value.article continued below Asus Chromebook C523NA Price and Configuration Options The Chromebook C523NA is available in two configurations. For $269, the base model gets you a 15.6-inch, 1366 x 768-resolution nontouch display, an Intel Celeron N3350 CPU, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The $349 model I reviewed has better specs across the board, including a 1080p touch screen, a Pentium N4200 CPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash storage. Design Lightweight, slim and made of metal, the Chromebook C523NA isn’t your average budget laptop. In fact, it’s so convincing that I would have been kicked off the Price Is Right if I had been asked to guess the laptop’s price based on its design alone. The Chromebook C523NA’s aluminum chassis distracted me from its bland appearance. A plain silver finish extends from the lid to the deck, a chrome Asus logo and colorful Chrome orb adorn the top of the laptop, and the only contrast on this machine comes from its black keyboard. There was minimal lid flex when I applied pressure to the C523NA, which is reassuring, and even somewhat unusual for an aluminum laptop in this price range. Lightweight, slim and made of metal, the Chromebook C523NA isn’t your average budget laptop. Without the razor-thin bezels we’ve seen on other laptops, the Chromebook C523 has a wide chassis, at 14.1 x 9.8 x 0.6 inches. Still, that’s a good deal smaller than its 15-inch competitor, the Acer Chromebook 15 (14.9 x 10.1 x 0.8 inches). The 11-inch Dell Chromebook 5190 (12 x 8.2 x 0.8 inches) is predictably smaller than the Asus, but it’s much thicker. The Chromebook C523NA’s 3.8-pound weight is nicely distributed across its frame, making it feel light. The Acer Chromebook 15 weighs a bit less at 3.7 pounds, while the smaller Dell Chromebook 5190 weighs in at 2.9 pounds. Ports You won’t have any problems connecting other gadgets to the C523NA, thanks to its four USB ports. Each side of the laptop houses a USB 3.1 Type-A and USB Type-C port for charging and plugging in peripherals, like a mouse and keyboard. You’ll also find a microSD card slot and a headphone/mic jack on the left side of the C523NA. Display I was pleasantly surprised to discover that such a low-cost laptop comes equipped with a 1080p touch-screen display. Although the 15.6-inch panel isn’t the most colorful, the amount of detail it reveals puts it ahead of other budget laptops. When I watched a trailer for the upcoming action sequel John Wick 3: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, I could see individual drops of rain falling on our battered protagonist as he evaded the world’s top assassins. On the down side, while I could read the billboard advertisements behind Keanu Reeves, the illuminated signs reflected muted color against a soaked concrete street. The display was harsh on my eyes when I browsed some of my favorite websites. White balance was on the warm side and whites, in general, were overexposed, making some web pages appear bleached. Although the C523NA’s 15.6-inch panel isn’t the most colorful, the amount of detail it reveals puts it ahead of other budget laptops. I wasn’t surprised to discover that the C523NA’s display covers only 76 percent of the sRGB color gamut. While the displays on the Acer Chromebook 15 (69 percent) and the Dell Chromebook 5190 (73 percent) are even less colorful, the Asus Chromebook failed to reach the category average (81 percent). Conversely, the C523NA’s display (231 nits) topped the Chromebook category average (221 nits) for maximum brightness, but it isn’t as luminous as the 11-inch panel on the Dell Chromebook 5190 (258 nits). The Acer Chromebook 15’s display peaked at a dim 215 nits. MORE: Laptop Screen Guide: Resolution, Refresh Rate, Color and Brightness The C523NA can also be configured with a 1366 x 768-pixel nontouch display. We recommend 1080p as a minimum display resolution, but the lower-end C523NA model may offer better battery life. The optional touch screen is a convenient addition. However, the C523NA can only be folded flat and can’t be flipped into tablet mode, limiting its versatility as a touch-ready device. Keyboard and Touchpad The island-style keyboard on the C523NA provides a decent typing experience. Adequate spacing between the standard-sized keys prevented me from accidentally tapping the wrong letter. I also didn’t bottom out because, despite its relatively slim profile, the laptop’s flat black keys depress 1.5 millimeters (which meets our 1.5-mm to 2-mm key travel recommendation). Better yet, the key’s 62 grams of actuation force allowed me to type at a quick pace, although I wish they were a bit more tactile. I typed at 103 words per minute with a 94 percent accuracy rate on the 10FastFingers typing test. My typical averages are slightly higher, at 109 wpm with 95 percent accuracy. I had no problems using the 4 x 2.8-inch touchpad to move my cursor around the web and execute Chrome OS gestures, like a three-finger swipe up to open all windows. Audio The dual speakers on the bottom of the Chromebook C523 were loud enough to fill a spacious room, but the tunes I listened to sounded thin. When I blared John Mayer’s 2001 hit song “No Such Thing,” the strum of the acoustic guitar was sharp and the sound of the cymbal clashes was piercing. That’s a shame, because Mayer’s smooth vocals would have sounded crisp and clear if the high frequencies hadn’t ruined the presentation. As expected, Swae Lee’s verses were nicely defined in the Ray Sremmurd song “Black Beatles,” but the low end lacked weight. Performance My low performance expectations were proven wrong by the Chromebook C523 when it swiftly opened 15 Google Chrome tabs while I streamed an Australian Open tennis match. There was a brief delay when I loaded a pair of 1080p YouTube videos, but it didn’t take long before everything was fully rendered. Equipped with a quad-core Intel Pentium N4200 CPU and 4GB of RAM, the Chromebook C523 did a solid job in our benchmark tests. The laptop scored a 4,698 on the Geekbench 4 test, which measures overall performance. That edges out the Dell Chromebook 5190 (Intel Celeron N3450, 4,193) and nearly doubles the category average (2,469). I expect Chromebooks to last an entire school day on a charge, but the Chromebook C523NA barely makes it past lunch. The Chromebook C523NA earned a score of 65.6 on the JetStream JavaScript benchmark, falling just short of the category average (68.9) and the Acer Chromebook 15 (Intel Pentium N4200, 66.6). It did, however, outperform the Dell Chromebook 5190 (54.5) by a good margin. MORE: The Laptops with the Best CPU Performance With an integrated HD Graphics 505 GPU, the C523 isn’t meant to run anything beyond what you can download in the Play Games store. For those less-demanding games, the C523 will do just fine. The laptop displayed 500 fish at a smooth 66 frames per second on the WebGL Aquarium benchmark test. That tops the Dell Chromebook 5190 (46 fps), Acer Chromebook 15 (51 fps) and the category average (49 fps). Chrome OS Chromebooks are now the most popular laptops in the K-12 market, and it’s easy to see why. Chrome OS is a simple, streamlined operating system centered on the ubiquitous Chrome web browser. The interface has a familiar layout, with a task bar on the bottom and shortcut icons in the lower-right corner. The OS is secure and easy to use, making it a great fit for low-cost laptops targeted at students. Google added Android app support to Chromebooks, greatly expanding what you can do on a Chrome OS laptop. However, there are still some compatibility kinks to iron out. I noticed those issues right away when I fired up a Snake game that took up only about a third of the Chromebook C523NA’s large display. Fortunately, our touch-screen C523NA avoided some of the annoyances created by Android apps that were written for touch input. Battery Life I expect Chromebooks to last an entire school day on a charge, but the Chromebook C523NA barely makes it past lunch. The laptop powered down after just 6 hours and 30 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test, which involves continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits. That’s a poor result, considering the average Chromebook (9:04) and Acer Chromebook 15 (9:07) endured for just over 9 hours, while the Dell Chromebook 5190 (9:30) stayed powered for more than 3 hours longer than the Asus. Webcam The 720p webcam above the Chromebook C523NA’s display takes blurry, muddy pictures. My facial features were indistinct in a selfie I shot in my brightly lit apartment. The camera also did a poor job capturing the color of my sweater, which appeared dark grey instead of forest green. The webcam is good enough for a quick chat with a teacher or parent, but you’ll want an external solution for frequent use. Heat The C523NA’s fans did an excellent job dispersing heat across the laptop’s wide aluminum frame, preventing it from ever reaching uncomfortable temperatures. Even after we played a 15-minute HD video in full screen, the bottom of the C523NA heated to only 89 degrees Fahrenheit, well below our 95-degree comfort threshold. The rest of the laptop was even cooler, with the touchpad reaching only 80 degrees and the center of the keyboard topping out at 88 degrees. Warranty and Support Asus sells the Chromebook C523NA with a one-year warranty. See how the company performed in our Tech Support Showdown and Best and Worst Brands ranking. Bottom Line The Chromebook C523NA is a lot of laptop for not a lot of money. For just $359, you get a large and detailed display, an aluminum chassis and adequate performance for everyday use. While I wish the display were more vivid, it’s much harder to overlook the laptop’s poor battery life. For the same money, you can purchase the Acer Chromebook 15. This 15.6-inch laptop is extremely similar to the C523NA, but at more than 9 hours, it offers significantly longer battery life. Alternatively, the Dell Chromebook 5190 also has all-day endurance, and its rugged chassis is a reassuring feature if you’re purchasing a laptop for your child. Overall, the Asus Chromebook C523NA is a good option if you want a Chromebook with a large display, but we’d choose the Acer instead.
