Shah holds massive road show in Tumkur on last day of campaining

first_imgBengaluru: BJP President Amit Shah Tuesday held a massive road show in Tumkur, where his party nominee is pitted against JDS supremo and former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, as the town was swathed in Saffron. Ahead of the road show, Shah visited Siddaganga mutt, a prominent Lingayat seminary in Karnataka, and paid respects at the “Gadduge” (the final resting place) of its highly revered seer Shivakumara Swami, who passed away at the age of 111-year, in January this year.

Shah canvassed votes for BJP candidate G S Basavaraj on the last day of the electioneering in the constituency, which is going for polls on Thursday along with 13 other seats in the first of the two-phase elections in the state. The remaining 14 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka will have polling on April 23.

Ahead of the “rath”, BJP supporters sporting saffron caps and holding cutouts, placards and party flags danced to drum beats, as slogans of ‘Modi Modi’ rent the air. Accompanying Shah among others were senior leader and MLA V Sonamma, BJP national general secretary and Karnataka in charge P Muralidhar Rao. Deve Gowda is the joint candidate of ruling Congress-JDS coalition in the constituency. He has chosen to contest from Tumkur at the last minute, after vacating Hassan, his home tuft, to grandson Prajwal Revanna. Congress had ceded Tumkur seat to JD(S) as per the seat sharing arrangement, denying ticket to sitting MP Muddahanumegowda, causing resentment within. The fight in Tumkur is also seen as battle between Lingayats and Vokkaligas – the two dominant communities in Karnataka — to which both Basavaraj and Gowda belong to respectively. Basavaraj had represented Tumkur in Lok Sabha in the past- thrice as a Congress nominee and once from BJP. He was defeated by Congress Muddahanumegowda in 2014 polls. For Deve Gowda it is his first electoral battle from Tumkur, which has eight assembly segments. Four of them are held by BJP, three by JD(S) and one by Congress. A total of 15 candidates are in the fray in the seat.last_img read more

No alternative to international cooperation stresses Austrian minister at UN Assembly

“This is a dangerous development because there is no alternative to international cooperation,” he said, addressing the 72nd annual general debate at the United Nations General Assembly. Speaking on terrorism, he underscored that in addition to destroying radical groups militarily where they operate, more action needs to be taken to stop radicalism in societies and to prevent youths from being misled. He also underscored that the migration crisis, could not be managed by any one country on its own. “Uncontrolled migration leads to chaos, therefore, we need to manage orderly migration and support people as much as possible in their countries of origin,” he added, noting the need for more effective control of borders, combatting the activities of human traffickers and effective support for countries of origin. Turning to the crisis emanating from the nuclear weapons development programme of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Minister Kurz reiterated that nuclear disarmament remained the “number one unfinished business.” “Today, we often hear that nuclear weapons are necessary for security. This narrative is not only wrong, it is dangerous,” he said, urging support for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, adopted in July at a UN conference. Concluding his remarks, he noted that a time when universal values are under threat, the international community needs to stand strong for human rights, rule of law and good governance. “I can assure you that Austria will continue to work for effective international cooperation.” Full statement available here read more

Wrens fear loss of memorials to their fallen after church makes way

first_imgBut their history could be lost as church leaders plan to install a controversial Bible museum founded by a conservative American evangelical. For decades St Mary le Strand has been the official church of the Women’s Royal Naval Service, with memorials dedicated to the memory of lost friends. Two churchwardens have resigned over the plans for the 18th century… The church, which was the official home of the WRNS, also contains items associated with the service, including a Pascal candle, alms dish, and altar frontal. The partnership with the Museum of the Bible would involve the temporary removal and storage of the pews, along with the kneelers made by former Wrens in memory of lost servicewomen.last_img read more

The 33 San Jose coppergold miners could see daylight very soon

first_imgEvents, thankfully, have overtaken the Leader in International Mining October that is currently mailing to readers. We hope to be able to report tomorrow that the men are being pulled from underground – considerably sooner than anyone expected, until very recently. Casing of the top 96 m of the Plan B hole is being completed and it is hoped that hoisting of the men up this rescue shaft will start tomorrow. News footage yesterday showed the Plan B Schramm T-130 XD drill, equipped with a Low Profile DTH drill, being driven away from the shaft, job done. It is always a risk writing about a relatively fast moving news situation in a monthly publication. In this case, I am very happy to point out the errors in the Leader. However, the main point about that Leader was to explain that three different holes using three different technologies were being drill to save these men – Plans A, B and C – a fact that was not clear from much of the general media reporting. The technology used to drill the rescue shafts is truly worldclass. The Schramm drill put its hole into the underground workshop on Level 135, a 630 m long hole. A 130 mm diameter pilot was opened out to 660 mm in diameter.Plan A’s Strata 950 raise drilling machine, built in Western Australia, is owned by Murray & Roberts of South Africa. This was developed for downhole pilot drilling at sizes up to 400 mm in diameter either byconventional means or using Mincon’s Rotary Vertical Drilling System (RVDS) tool that continuously self surveys and corrects itself to the vertical. It drilled an initial pilot hole to a diameter of 0.375 m which is being reamed out to excavate a 0.72 m diameter access hole from surface to the location of the trapped miners. This diameter was chosen because a larger diameter would take commensurately longer to drill.Precision Drilling is executing Plan C using an oil industry drill, which only started drilling in late September. The plan for this was to drill a 600 mm hole (no pilot hole required) directly into the rampat level 150 – this will be a hole length of 700 m at 85°, slightly off vertical.In late September, a Chilean Navy technical team delivered the first of three 540 mm diameter, 2.5 m tall cylindrical pods with a reinforced roof to pull the miners up the completed rescue shaft. It is equippedwith a video link to surface, an oxygen supply, lighting system and an escape hatch and safety device so the passenger can lower himself back should such an escape be necessary. It will be hoisted using guide wheels. We look forward to seeing those rescue cages do their job successfully tomorrow.last_img read more

What does TCIs subscription to the UNs Human Rights Convention and International

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, Providenciales, June 14th 2017: Mehul Solanki’s case of unfair, biased treatment at the Detention Centre is not the first of its kind for the TCI.  In this report, we take a look at the basic rights outlined for Detainees under the International Migration Law as set by the United Nations Human Rights Office of the Commissioner.According to the International Migration Law’s General Principles, “Detention must be ordered and approved by a judge and subject to automatic regular judicial review in each individual case”, and they must have access to legal counsel.Solanki claims that he had no opportunity at either a court hearing or a judgement.Its ‘specific rights and standards applicable to migrants in detention’ under Section III (1), says detainees must have the “Right to communicate with the outside world” and must have the “Right to human detention conditions and obligation to respect the inherent dignity of every human person”.Mehul Chandrakant Solanki back home in India and still very distraught and angry after his harrowing ordeal in the TCI at the hands of Immigration Officers at the Detention CentreSolanki says the center failed to live up to decent conditions, putting his health at risk on at least two occasions and his safety was compromised with theft of his belongings which were stolen despite reportedly being in the possession of Immigration authorities.The law adds that detainees have a right to be “Release on bail, bond or surety” under Section IV (3e). This type of measure requires the pledge of a sum of money in order to ensure the individual’s appearance at an official appointment or hearing, organized in the context of processing the case of a migrant by competent authorities.Section 6.3 adds that Long-term residents or migrants whose situation in the country becomes irregular and who are consequently subject to expulsion should not be detained.Solanki says he was resident in TCI for three years and had only gone to authorities to report a missing or stolen passport when he was detained.The law explains that it is “totally unacceptable that legal long-term immigrants who have been sentenced to expulsion are held in prison while awaiting expulsion.”In Mehul Solanki’s case, he had no travel documents and had to wait for them to be issued by his home country.  However, he claims this process was gravely slowed down by the detaining authorities here in Turks and Caicos.The Turks and Caicos as a British overseas territories is subject to all UN conventions.

In Franklins Anthems Women Heard an Empowering Message

first_imgBy JOCELYN NOVECK, AP National WriterNEW YORK (AP) — Aretha Franklin never saw herself as a feminist heroine. That, she quipped, was Gloria Steinem’s role. But she leaves a legacy of indelible anthems that resonated deeply with women by celebrating their strength and individuality — and demanding, well, just a little respect.“I don’t think I was a catalyst for the women’s movement,” she told Rolling Stone in 2014. “Sorry. But if I were? So much the better!”In this April 8, 1975 file photo, singer Aretha Franklin performs during the 47th Annual Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Franklin died Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018 at her home in Detroit. She was 76. (AP Photo, File)The women’s movement was just getting going in 1967 when Franklin took on Otis Redding’s “Respect,” which soon became known as an anthem both for civil rights and for feminism.Franklin changed the song’s meaning, radically, just by singing it in her own, inimitable voice.She may not have intended it to be a feminist anthem, but she surely knew how it would resonate. Instead of a man asking for his “propers” when he got home, here a woman was asking for — no, requiring — that same respect, from her man and in a broader sense, from society.“‘Respect’ is THE second-wave feminist anthem, more than any other song I can think of,” says Evelyn McDonnell, editor of the anthology “Women Who Rock” and professor at Loyola Marymount University. “Aretha was intersectional before the term existed.” She notes that Franklin’s version of “Respect” was the quintessential “answer record” to Redding’s — in this case, with the very same song.To music writer Caryn Rose, Franklin’s message in that song was deliberate. “She knew what the message was, and she intended it,” says Rose, who wrote the essay on Franklin in “Women Who Rock.” Redding himself basically conceded defeat — with good humor — when singing the song at the Monterey Pop Festival. “This next song is a song that a girl took away from me,” he said. “A good friend of mine … but I’m still gonna do it anyway.” It’s hard now to imagine a male voice singing the song.Franklin would later say she intended to convey a message about respect that was broader than any one movement. “The statement was something that was very important, and where it was important to me, it was important to others,” she told Vogue magazine. “Not just me or the civil rights movement or women — it’s important to people. … Because people want respect, even small children, even babies. As people, we deserve respect from one another.”Franklin was, of course, the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in 1987, opening the door for other women. But to call her the greatest female singer is to ignore that in the view of so many she was the greatest singer, period. “There is no one who can touch her,” wrote Mary J. Blige in Rolling Stone, when the magazine chose Franklin as the top singer of all time. “She is the reason why women want to sing.”Though “Respect” was probably her most famous anthem of female empowerment, there were other songs of great resonance to women, like “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” written by Carole King. It’s a love song, of course. But in Franklin’s rendition, somehow it became, unmistakably, about womanhood. “It’s celebrating in the gloriousness of being female,” says McDonnell. “So yes, it’s a feminist anthem, too.”No performance of that song was more lauded than when Franklin performed it for King herself at the 38th annual Kennedy Center Honors in December 2015. As is customary, King didn’t know that Franklin would be there to honor her. She was overwhelmed from the first second. As for President Barack Obama, he was wiping away tears. When Franklin threw off her fur coat toward the end and raised her arms, the crowd erupted.Asked later what the song meant to her, she told Vogue: “I can relate to it very easily. I’m very natural.” But she said she’d never expected it to become an anthem for women. “Women just seemed to take to it like that, and it became a mantra,” she said.She did allow that she could see herself as an example for strong women: “You could say that,” she said. “I am a natural woman. I think women have to be strong. If you don’t, some people will run right over you.” Franklin was even an idol for Murphy Brown, the ultimate career woman, appearing in a charming 1991 cameo to sing “Natural Woman” with the starstruck news anchor played by Candice Bergen.Among other resonant Franklin songs for women, there was the 1968 “Think”: “You better think (think) about what you’re trying to do to me,” she sang. “That line just resonates in terms of respect and how women want to be treated,” says Gail Mitchell, a senior editor at Billboard.And of course there was Franklin’s 1985 duet with the Eurythmics, “Sisters Are Doin’ it For Themselves.” The song announced: “We’re comin’ out of the kitchen, ’cause there’s somethin’ we forgot to say to you.” It was covered by everyone from the Pointer Sisters to the Spice Girls to Lisa Simpson on “The Simpsons.” And it was the rousing finale to a 2011 Franklin tribute at the Grammys, performed by Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, Jennifer Hudson, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams.In the end, however Franklin chose to describe her impact on women, she left them words to live by — in the world, and in relationships.“They say it’s a man’s world,” she sang on her album “I Never Loved a Man The Way I Love You” in 1967, “but you can’t prove that by me. And as long as we’re together baby, show some respect for me.”last_img read more

Women with more social support live longer

first_imgElderly women who have more social support are more likely to live longer, a study claims. Researchers from George Mason University in the US examined perceived social support and its effect on cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality. Even after accounting for factors such as income, race, and education that could have influenced the results, the researchers still found that women in this age range who reported lower levels of social support had a higher death rate during the 10 plus years of the study. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIn fact, they found that when women reported a very low level of social support, that predicted about a 20 per cent greater risk of death during those same 10 plus years compared to those reporting very high levels of social support. “Perceived functional social support, which we examined in this study, can include whether a person believes they could get emotional support, advice, or just company from others to do fun things with, which can help reduce stress,” said Nancy Freeborne from George Mason University. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”It’s a reminder that sometimes the simplest things – like reaching out to a loved one – can have the most profound impact,” Freeborne said. To date, this is the largest study to explore the impact of perceived social support on cardiovascular disease and mortality, researchers said. The data from over 90,000 postmenopausal women aged 50-79 was collected over a period of 10 years. Previous studies have also shown that social support can help decrease the risk of CVD, with the new study the largest to date look at the effect of social support on CVD and all-cause mortality in women. The researchers commented that the results show the benefits of social support for health, possibly through helping to relieve stress, although they add that further research is still needed. The researchers suggest further study to account for perceived social support delivered via social media, and to further examine age and gender differences to determine if social support has different impacts based on gender or different periods in a lifetime.last_img read more

Taxi drivers in North Staffordshire urged to buy electric cabs with THIRTY

Local authorities have been awarded more than £780,000 to create 10 points in their three respective areas with 30 being rolled out in total. The cash has come from Taxi Infrastructure Investment Fund and is designed to help greener cars travel across council borders along with conducting journeys between urban and rural areas.

At the end of the day it will be the customers who have to pick up the tab.” Punter found hiding in bushes But John Scarlett, from JMS TopGear Travel in Sneyd Green, says he would consider investing in an electric car when he swaps his current taxi. He said: “I do think people would take it up. There aren’t many points about and I don’t think I’ve actually seen an electric cab in Stoke-on-Trent.

It has been displayed at the Henry E. Legler branch in the city’s West Garfield Park neighbourhood. A Nov. 15 auction was expected to bring in more than $10 million for an expansion there.Emanuel said he changed plans after hearing opposition, particularly from Marshall.“I was swimming and thought, ‘This is not what I wanted, given the city’s contributions to public art, and Kerry’s a friend and also a great ambassador for Chicago,’” Emanuel said Sunday. “I reached out to him and said, ‘Look, I don’t want this. If you’re not happy, I don’t want to go forward.’”The mural was commissioned in 1995 for $10,000. Marshall said Emanuel’s shift was the “right decision to make.”“It just seemed like a way of exploiting the work of artists in the city for short-term gain in a really shortsighted kind of way,” Marshall said of a possible sale. “It certainly would make one believe there’s no reason to do anything because you have some kind of civic pride as a citizen.”“Knowledge and Wonder” will be displayed again at the library as soon as possible, Emanuel said.Earlier this year, music producer Sean Combs purchased a Marshall painting for $21 million, Marshall’s New York dealer, Jack Shainman, told the New York Times.
