Togo SecretaryGeneral welcomes signing of political reform agreement

A statement from Mr. Annan’s spokesman called yesterday’s agreement “an important undertaking by Togolese as a whole to put the past behind them and to build a brighter future based on reconciliation, transparency and the rule of law.” The death of long-time president Gnassingbé Eyadéma in February 2005 and subsequent disputed presidential elections precipitated a political crisis and factional fighting in which at least 400 people were killed and tens of thousands fled to neighbouring countries. The Secretary-General welcomed President Faure Gnassingbé’s commitment to rapidly implement the agreement and said he was encouraged by the “spirit of conciliation and compromise demonstrated by Togolese political leaders throughout the process.” Mr. Annan also commended President Blaise Compaore of Burkina Faso for his part in facilitating the talks. Mr. Annan also called upon the international community to “help Togo consolidate the new chapter in the country’s process of democratic reform through renewed and increased cooperation and support, in particular to revitalize the economy.” read more

The top speed is 216 miles an hour. It’s just absolutely crazy,” said Gerald Wood, General Manager of Ford Canada Western Region.“We’ve committed to build it for four years. The numbers for Canada will be quite small but we’re excited for every single one of them that comes here. It’s going to be great.”Prospective owners have to apply to buy one and even then, they have to commit to not re-selling it for another two years.Ford has also brought along an ergonomic specialist to the show, allowing onlookers to wear either a pregnancy suit or ‘Third Age Suit.’Both are items that engineers wear so they can design their vehicles with the pregnant or elderly driver in mind.“It’s the old saying about walking a mile in someone’s shoes to understand where they’re coming from,” said Interaction and Ergonomic Specialist Cary Diehl.“What we try and do in any vehicle we engineer (is) we want to do design for 95 per cent of the people who are going to purchase it, to ensure they’re going to be very comfortable.”The Calgary International Auto and Truck Show continues at BMO Centre until Sunday. auto show|Calgary|Ford|YYC read more

Ohio State defense quiets critics Spartans attack

EAST LANSING, Mich. – For about five weeks, the Ohio State football defense heard almost nothing but criticism. For the majority of OSU’s game Saturday against Michigan State, the Buckeyes’ defense heard almost nothing at all. Playing against an MSU team that features one of the nation’s most prolific running backs, OSU, time after time, sent the Spartans’ offense back to its sideline and the bulk of the 76,000-plus screaming fans at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Mich., into their seats with not much to cheer for. A week removed from giving up 403 yards of offense to a now 0-4 Alabama-Birmingham team, the Buckeyes allowed just 303 yards. The Spartans were 4-for-15 on third down, averaged a mere 1.5 yards per carry, and completed only 52 percent of their passes. The stat the Buckeyes are likely most proud of, though, is the 45 yards MSU junior tailback Le’Veon Bell totaled on the ground. Coming into Saturday’s contest, Bell was the nation’s third leading rusher, averaging 153 yards per game. “That’s a good back. He won’t be held to (such low yardage). I’m venturing to say that won’t happen again to that guy. He’s a good player,” said OSU first-year coach Urban Meyer. OSU players agreed with their coach. “It’s amazing, ain’t it?” said OSU redshirt senior defensive end Nathan Williams of the Buckeyes’ bottling up Bell. “It’s incredible. We played our butts off up front.” Saturday’s defensive performance was needed by OSU, and not just to pave the way for a win against a Big Ten foe. Coming into its game against the Spartans, OSU ranked at the bottom of the Big Ten in defense, and it was something that shocked Buckeye players. “Somebody sent us a text last week showing us we were last in defense, and we were just like, ‘Dang,’” said redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby. Williams said he took the criticism aimed at OSU’s defense to heart. “We take things personal, and we showed it (Saturday),” Williams said. Prior to kickoff Saturday, MSU’s defense ranked best in the Big Ten. But by 7:40 p.m., it was the Buckeyes’ defense that looked better, as now No. 12-ranked OSU (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) held on for a 17-16 victory against then No. 20-ranked Spartans (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten). “We have a lot of confidence in this defense. I have a lot of confidence in this defense. I think (Saturday) we finally played to our potential,” said senior linebacker Etienne Sabino, who all but sealed the win with a third-down hit on MSU junior quarterback Andrew Maxwell late in the fourth quarter that stalled a possible game-winning drive. The potential for the defense, according to OSU players, is to be the best in the conference and one of the best in the country. “Michigan State’s supposed to have one of the best defenses in the Big Ten, so we just wanted to come out here (Saturday) and show that we’re the best defense in the Big Ten,” Roby said. The players the OSU defense employed Saturday are mostly the same players that have been playing, and struggling, throughout the first month of the season. Those players’ muscles were not any bigger and their legs were not any quicker Saturday against the Spartans. The difference between OSU’s defensive performance against MSU versus its output during the first month of the season was, according to Buckeye players, the game plan. OSU had nine players in the box most of the game and had its defensive backs play one-on-one coverage. They forced Maxwell to throw and did not let Bell, a 6-foot-2, 244-pound bruiser, gain yards up the middle. Williams, who has been a part of the OSU program since 2008, said the game plan was the best he’s ever been a part of in his career as a Buckeye. “We’ve seen (Bell) get going on tape, and it’s all bad news once he gets running downhill. So we didn’t give him the opportunity to get going downhill. We closed the gaps, and played great defense,” Williams said. As bad as OSU had been on defense heading into its game against MSU, Meyer said he was confident the Buckeyes were capable of the performance they turned in Saturday. “Absolutely I thought (we were good enough to win). I thought our defense was good enough to play better the first four games; that’s how much confidence I’ve got in our players and coaches,” Meyer said. Meyer and his players said they know the strong defensive outings will have to continue for the remainder of the season. This upcoming Saturday, OSU faces No. 21 Nebraska. The Huskers average 44.8 points per game and more than 300 yards per game on the ground. It will be another major test for the Buckeyes’ defense, but Williams said he hopes OSU’s performance against MSU will give OSU a leg up. “I hope Nebraska looks at this tape and realizes they can’t run on us,” Williams said. Whether or not the Huskers hear Williams warning will be proven Saturday, as OSU takes on Nebraska at 8:00 p.m. in Ohio Stadium. read more

Ohio State mens hockey swept at home by NebraskaOmaha

Master Sgt. James Finfrock, a senior military instructor with the OSU ROTC, rappels down to center ice to deliver the puck Nov. 7 before a game between OSU and Nebraska-Omaha at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 4-1. Credit: Michael Griggs / For The LanternDespite wearing camouflage jerseys in honor of Veterans Day, the Ohio State men’s hockey team did not blend into its environment over the weekend. The Buckeyes stood out; they were the team unable to score goals on Friday and unable to stop the opposition the following night.The University of Nebraska-Omaha beat OSU (2-5-1) 4-1 on Friday and 4-3 on Saturday at the Schottenstein Center.“Same result,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said of Saturday’s loss. “You have to play a little smarter with the lead. I thought we gave up a couple of easy goals on some breakdowns.”The Buckeyes squandered a 3-1 lead in the first period of Saturday’s game, then couldn’t score on the power play during the waning moments of their eventual 4-3 loss.With the Buckeyes’ net empty and extra attacker on, Nebraska-Omaha took a penalty with 1:21 remaining in regulation. The penalty put OSU on a two-man advantage.Down 4-3 at the time, OSU couldn’t convert as Maverick sophomore goalie Kirk Thompson kicked aside the Buckeyes’ last-second shot and sealed Nebraska-Omaha’s road sweep.The Buckeyes’ power play went one-for-nine on the weekend and has gone one-for-18 in its past four games.OSU senior forward Darik Angeli scored the Buckeyes’ lone power play goal of the series on Saturday, but the goal, which gave OSU its 3-1 lead, was irrelevant by the end of the night.Goals came early on Saturday as the Buckeyes and Mavericks combined for three goals on the first four shots of the game.OSU’s offense showed good signs in the first period, but OSU sophomore forward Nick Schilkey said the team’s success was lost in the final score.“Obviously a couple went in early on, but it kind of goes by the wayside by the end of the game when we can’t capitalize,” Schilkey said. “It wasn’t our best.”OSU notched the first goal of the night at the 4:05 mark when Schilkey connected with senior forward Tanner Fritz to give Fritz his third goal of the season.Less than a minute later Nebraska-Omaha freshman forward Avery Peterson scored his second of the series and first of the night. Peterson’s wrist shot from the left circle was nearly identical to the shot he beat OSU sophomore goalie Matt Tomkins with on Friday.The Buckeyes regained the lead one-minute later when senior forward Chad Niddery put a backhander behind Thompson.After scoring at nearly a goal-per-minute pace, the teams slowed until the 16:11 mark of period when Angeli and Peterson swapped goals within a two-minute span.Angeli’s goal was OSU’s final cause for celebration. Nebraska-Omaha notched goals in the second and third periods to complete their two-goal comeback.“We weren’t happy with the amount of times that their forwards got behind us,” OSU junior defenseman Sam Jardine said. “That’s just something they were trying to do, stretch us out once we got the lead.”The Mavericks’ game-tying goal came after the Buckeyes had a couple good scoring chances and marked a turning point in the game, Rohlik said.“Sometimes when you start pressing, instead of getting better you start to find yourself maybe not making those fluent plays,” Rohlik said. “That’s almost how we looked.”Buckeye sophomore goalie Christian Frey finished with 26 saves including 12 in the third period.Friday’s result brought a different type of frustration to the Buckeyes. OSU outshot Nebraska-Omaha 26-19 and led 40-22 in the faceoff circle.“Our guys didn’t have a lot of zip tonight,” Nebraska-Omaha coach Dean Blais said on Friday. “Ohio State had the better chances.”The Buckeyes’ possession wasn’t enough to solve Maverick senior goalie Ryan Massa who made 25 saves for the Mavericks. OSU Senior forward Matt Johnson’s goal in the third period ruined what would have otherwise been a well-earned shutout.Tomkins made 15 saves for the Buckeyes on Friday.Loose Pucks-Fritz went 25-12 in the face-off circle against Nebraska-Omaha-OSU is having its worst start to its season since it went 2-5-1 to open the 2009-2010 season.-The last time the Buckeyes were swept at home was Feb. 22-23, 2013 vs. Michigan read more

NYPD detective charged in Queens drunken driving crash that killed Guyanese

Prosecutors charged an off-duty NYPD detective who killed a 22-year-old Guyanese woman in a booze-fueled crash in Queens with criminally negligent homicide during a brief hospital arraignment Wednesday, officials said.Vanessa Raghubar (FACEBOOK photo)According to the New York Daily News, Neville Smith, 32, was also charged with vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving for crashing his 2010 Mercedes-Benz into Vanessa Raghubar’s vehicle on the Van Wyck Expressway near Rockaway Blvd. in South Ozone Park at about 4 a.m. Sunday, authorities said.Moments after the accident, Smith told responding officers he was returning home “from a dinner function for an old co-worker” when he struck Raghbuar’s car, according to court papers.Raghubar, a psychology student at York College preparing to graduate in June, suffered a massive head injury and bleeding on the brain, officials said.She died of her injuries at Jamaica Hospital on Monday, cops said.According to NY Daily, the soon-to-be college grad was driving home from her sister’s birthday celebration when the fatal collision took place, heartbroken family members said.Smith, a detective assigned to the 48th Precinct in the Bronx, was heading south on the Van Wyck Expressway at an unsafe speed when he rear-ended Raghubar’s red Honda Accord in the center lane, according to cops.The collision sent Raghubar’s car careening across the highway onto a grassy shoulder, where it struck a tree and an overhead light pole, critically injuring her and her two passengers.Her younger sister Maria Raghubar, 21, and her sister’s boyfriend, Justin Harricharran, 20, remained at Jamaica Hospital, where Maria has undergone four surgeries for a shattered pelvis, a shredded bladder and a broken arm.Neville Smith, 32, was also charged with vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving for crashing his 2010 Mercedes-Benz into Vanessa Raghubar’s vehicle on the Van Wyck Expressway. (MARC A. HERMANN/FOR NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)Maria Raghubar was seated in the rear seat when Smith struck the car, officials said. Harricharran was sitting in the passenger seat.Smith plowed into a Jersey barrier after hitting Raghubar’s car, officials said. He was rushed to Jamaica Hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries, cops said.Neville appeared drunk and reeked of alcohol, but refused to have a Breathalyzer test taken for several hours after the collision, forcing investigators to get a court order to draw his blood, officials said.A judge ordered Smith held on $300,000 bail, officials said. If convicted, he faces up to seven years in prison, prosecutors said.“Drinking and then driving is a deadly combination,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement. “The defendant — a police officer bound to enforce the law — is now accused of breaking the law and with deadly consequences.”Raghubar’s family has been calling for criminal charges against Smith since the fatal impact.“He was a cop and he was drunk. We want justice,” Raghubar’s aunt Esther Mongul told the Daily News Monday. “He was supposed to protect us, not kill us.”Attempts to reach Raghubar’s family were unsuccessful Wednesday.

US Senate planning probe into Russian spying Trump planning to end Russian

first_img Jan 14th 2017, 9:43 AM Saturday 14 Jan 2017, 9:43 AM released by “Intelligence” even knowing there is no proof, and never will be. My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 13, 2017 And I’m going to do the right thing, whatever it is. I may be right. And they may be right.Over three days of feisty hearings this week, Trump’s nominees warned of the threat posed by Russia, hailed NATO, repudiated torture, defended the US intelligence community and cautioned against withdrawing from the Iran nuclear treaty and the Paris climate accord.On virtually every controversial foreign policy stance that Trump took during the campaign, they hedged and backtracked and sought to assure senators that they shared the consensus that has shaped Western strategic thinking and institutions since World War II.© – AFP, 2017Read: Here’s how plans for Trump’s ‘softly sensual’ inauguration are goingRead: Mother loses four children in station, one catches fast-train to Leipzig The 70-year-old Republican later elaborated, telling reporters at Trump Tower: “I could have said, ‘Do this, say that.’ I don’t want that.

I want them to be themselves and express their own thoughts, not mine!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 13, 2017 Source: Donald J. Trump/Twitter Source: Evan VucciUS SENATORS HAVE launched a probe into Russian spying, saying intelligence reports of Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to American political parties “raise profound concerns”.The investigation, backed by both Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee, could trigger forced testimony by officials of both Barack Obama’s outgoing administration and the incoming government of Donald Trump, who won the 8 November presidential vote.US intelligence agencies allege that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a covert effort to interfere in the election to boost Trump and harm his opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton.A report from the Director of National Intelligence released early this month says the Russians hacked Democratic Party computers and accounts to release files embarrassing to Clinton, and also conducted a campaign of media manipulation with the same aim.But the public version of the report was questioned for offering only weak evidence of its claims.An unproven dossier compiled by a former British MI6 intelligence agent also alleged close ties between the Trump campaign and Russian government, and said Moscow had lurid video of Trump with prostitutes while in Russia.British ex-spy’s report“It is critical to have a full understanding of the scope of Russian intelligence activities impacting the United States,” the Senate panel said.Trump, who will take office in one week, has repeatedly rejected suggestions that Moscow aided in his election victory.He has also compared US intelligence agencies to “Nazi Germany” for allegedly leaking to the media their analyses in order to undermine him.The probe will review the intelligence community’s assessments and also other assessments, “including any intelligence regarding links between Russia and individuals associated with political campaigns” the committee said.That suggested the former British spy’s explosive report could also be reviewed.Vowing to “get it right”, the panel said most of the work will be done outside of public scrutiny to protect classified information.In light of the hacking allegations, Trump’s close ties with Russia, and especially President Vladimir Putin, have come under growing scrutiny.Trump, who sees an opportunity to cooperate with Moscow in fighting jihadist groups like Islamic State, has expressed admiration for Putin, and only reluctantly accepted US intelligence’s conclusion that Russian hackers acting on Putin’s authority interfered in the US elections.Improper contact with Russian envoy? Michael Flynn Source: Andrew HarnikThe Washington Post reported that Trump’s incoming national security advisor Michael Flynn telephoned Moscow’s ambassador to Washington, Sergey Kislyak, several times the day before Obama unveiled punitive measures over Russia’s alleged cyberattacks to influence the US election.Flynn receives a speaking fee from Russian government-funded Russia Today.Trump’s incoming press secretary, Sean Spicer, said Flynn in fact spoke with the envoy on Christmas Day, sending him a text to wish him a merry Christmas and happy New Year.“I look forward to touching base with you, and working with you, and I wish you all the best,” Spicer quoted Flynn as telling the ambassador, adding that the envoy responded with holiday greetings.On 28 December, the pair spoke by phone about “the logistics of setting up a call with the president of Russia and the president-elect after he was sworn in, and they exchanged logistical information on how to initiate and schedule that call,” Spicer said.He added: “That was it. Plain and simple.”In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump hinted he may scrap Obama’s punitive measures altogether, and said he was prepared to meet with Putin after taking office 20 January.Separately, he blasted the leak of the unsubstantiated report that Russia had gathered compromising personal and financial material on him as “totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives”. He promised a “full report” on the hacking claims within 90 days.In the first round of hearings for Trump nominees that wrapped up yesterday, a week before Obama hands the Manhattan billionaire the keys to the White House, several of his cabinet picks publicly contradicted him.But the president-elect dismissed talk of ideological splits.“All of my Cabinet nominee (sic) are looking good and doing a great job,” he said in an early morning tweet. “I want them to be themselves and express their own thoughts, not mine!” 10,918 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Aurecon enhances family benefits for Australian and New Zealand staff

first_imgEngineering organisation Aurecon has enhanced its family-friendly benefits for its 1,890 Australia and New Zealand-based employees, including the launch of a shared care benefit.The new shared care benefit provides financial support to help secondary carers take on primary carer roles. The support can be accessed in three different situations. First, if an Aurecon employee takes over as their child’s primary carer when their partner returns to work, they will then be able to access the organisation’s paid parental leave benefit. Second, an Aurecon employee can receive 150% of their salary if they return to work and their partner is the primary carer for their child, but their partner cannot receive paid primary carers’ leave from their own employer. Third, if both parents work for Aurecon, they can both access the organisation’s paid parental leave arrangement.The scheme is available to birth parents, adoptive parents, foster parents and same-sex parents who have six months’ continuous service at the organisation. The scheme applies in the first year of a child’s life.The organisation currently offers its employees 14 weeks of paid parental leave, although employees can take up to 52 weeks of leave in total if parental leave is combined with other forms of leave, such as annual leave, unpaid leave, and the government’s paid parental scheme. Aurecon provides superannuation payments, the workplace pension arrangement in place in Australia, for both the 14 weeks of paid parental leave as well as 14 weeks of the unpaid portion of the organisation’s parental leave offering.The Australian government’s paid parental leave scheme entitles primary carers to up to 18 weeks of paid leave at the national minimum wage rate, and fathers and partners are entitled to two weeks of paid leave. The rate currently stands at $695 a week (£421).Aurecon will also introduce both a parental room and a children’s room at its Brisbane office to further support its working parents. These rooms are designed to enable employees on parental leave or those with children to bring their children in to the office in order to attend short meetings without having to arrange childcare.Existing initiatives that provide support for employees with caring responsibilities include a flexible-working platform, which allows Aurecon employees to nominate their daily start and finish times across their working week.William Cox, managing director, Australia and New Zealand at Aurecon, said: “Shared care will not suit all Aurecon parents and is not intended to encourage mothers to return to work before they are ready. Rather, it provides a source of financial support for Aurecon primary carers who choose to return to work within the child’s first year. Shared care is inclusive of all families including same-sex relationships, and is available to birth parents, adoptive and foster parents.”last_img read more

Copper butterfly folds wings to avoid unwanted male advances

first_img © 2010 PhysOrg.com More information: Avoiding Male Harassment: Wing-Closing Reactions to Flying Individuals by Female Small Copper Butterflies, Jun-Ya Ide, Ethology, DOI: 10.1111/j.1439-0310.2011.01912.xAbstractMales of many butterfly species persistently court and attempt to mate with females even if the females reject courtship. This male harassment almost certainly has negative effects on female fitness. Therefore, females have likely evolved strategies to avoid such encounters. To investigate the harassment avoidance strategy of females of the small copper butterfly, Lycaena phlaeas daimio, I observed the reactions of females to other individuals flying nearby in the field. In response to the conspecific butterflies, females closed their wings if they had previously been open and did not exhibit any action if the wings had been closed. Females that closed their open wings in response to a conspecific received fewer mating attempts than did females that held their wings open. These results indicate that the wing-closing behaviour of L. phlaeas females functions to deter male mating attempts. The wing-closing reaction occurred primarily in mated females. Because females of L. phlaeas copulate only once during their lives, this behaviour is not considered an indirect mate choice but rather an attempt to avoid persistent mating attempts (i.e. sexual harassment) by males. (PhysOrg.com) — In a move that females of any species would likely recognize, the small copper female butterfly has evolved a strategy of dissuading amorous males that is both effective and energy conserving; she simply closes her wings whenever they come near. When it’s cool, female butterflies chase males in sex role reversal Explore further Citation: Copper butterfly folds wings to avoid unwanted male advances (2011, June 2) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-06-copper-butterfly-wings-unwanted-male.html Lycaenidae – Lycaena phlaeas. Image: Ettore Balocchi/Wikipedia. Japanese associate professor of ecological engineering, Jun-Ya Ide noticed while observing the copper butterfly Lycaena phlaeas daimio, in the wild, that at least some of the females tended to fold their brightly colored wings, or to hold still with their wings closed, whenever males of the same species flew near them (and sometimes even when butterflies from other species came by). Intrigued he devised a simple experiment to test his theory that females that had already mated were folding their wings to ward off unwanted advances by males. In a paper published in Ethology, Ide describes how when he moved a model of a copper butterfly close to an already mated female, she more often than not closed her wings, or remained still if they were already closed. In contrast, virgin females showed no such behavior, indicating that the already mated females were using wing closing as a means to dissuade males from noticing them.Since copper butterflies mate but once in their lifetime, the move makes sense for both genders; the females go un-harassed which helps to ensure their survival and allows them to conserve energy, and the males avoid wasting time and energy on already mated females, allowing them to go after just the virgins, which helps to ensure that all females in any given area are mated.Dr Ide also noted in an interview with the BBC, that over-exuberant mating behavior by males can actually harm females, damaging their delicate butterfly parts, so the wing closing is not just a way to fend off sexual advances, but a means of physical protection as well. He also pointed out that his observations in the wild, showed that the female technique actually worked, those females that closed their wings and remained still, were subjected to less harassment than did those who did not close their wings, and thus likely lived far happier, healthier and less stressful lives as a result.

Being the oldest Indian music label in the country, it was evidently popular as the only Indian Music Company. Rabindranath Tagore recorded his first recording with ‘Hindusthan Records’ and encouraged his disciples to record as well. The music label has the top recording artists of the past hundred years including K L Saigal, S D Burman, Debabrata Biswas, Subinoy Roy, Pankaj Kumar Mullick, Amar Pal, Kanika Banerjee,Pannalal Bhattacharjee, Mohiner Ghoraguli, Abbasuddin, Gyan Prakash Ghosh, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Kanan Devi, Feroza Begum, Begum Akhtar, Mehdi Hassan, Ghulam Ali and other luminaries.

Round 4 Chance of a holiday romance To judge the

first_imgRound 4: Chance of a holiday romanceTo judge the quality of local talent (not that you’ve got a chance) is of course subjective. For every Maksim Mrvica, there’s an Ivica Olić, every Penelope Cruz, there’s a Miguel Ángel Jiménez. But for your average Brit, whose talent pool consists of other drunken holidaymakers, the chances of pulling rest on how much your prospective partner has drunk, and the density of discos in the destination. Basically, forget getting jiggy with hotties on Hvar, but hit up Tropicana in Magaluf, and you’re in there.Winner: Spain. The old dog bites back with dynamite in both hands. This is a real rumble in the jungle and it’s going the distance. Round 1: Cheapest foodThere is often a huge misconception between the perceived and actual cost of holiday destinations. Last year Skyscanner revealed that Spain was actually cheaper than people thought, while Croatia, despite being outside the Eurozone, was more expensive than perceived. Anyway, according to MyTravelCost.com, Spain is 6% more expensive than Croatia for groceries. In Spain, while you can gorge on its famous tapas and paella, a loaf of bread will set you back £2.25. In Croatia, with its tradition of dough-based street snacks like borek, a loaf is 83p, while a loaf of ‘toast bread’ a mere 41p.Winner: Croatia. There are no two words that sum up summer holidays more than ‘toast bread’? Feather-fisted Croatia lands the first blow. Round 2: Cheapest beerTo the less fair sex at least, cheap beer is vital to the enjoyment of a holiday. According to PintPrice.com, Croatia edges it on the price of a pint (£1.65) over Spain (£1.69). Of course it depends where you go: a beer will set you back four quid in Barcelona, and a ridiculous £8.67 in Ibiza, but only 66p in Santanyi. In touristy Dubrovnik, it’s £2.65 a pint, while in Gradac it’s a refreshing 48p. In Brist, according to one comment on PintPrice, one can ‘get pissed for a quid’. Get in!Winner: Croatia. A close round of sparring with no knockout blows. Throwing Ibiza in the mix is below the belt, but pulling punches is not our game. Skyscanner puts two heavyweight summer holiday contenders in the ring to fight it out pound for pound over five hard-hitting rounds. It’s old brawler Spain v. young pretender Croatia. Will it go the distance? Who will land the knockout blow? Ding! Ding! Round 5: Best beachesCroatia’s photogenic Zlatini Rat, on the Dalmatian island of Brac, is regularly voted one of the best beaches in the world. However, Croatia’s beaches lack one vital element: sand. Yes, its coast and islands are stunning, but can the kids build a sandcastle? No. On the other hand, Spain has buckets (and spades) of sandy beaches, from Cadiz to the Costa Brava. Pick from Genoveses in Almeria, El Cotillo on Fuerteventura, Playa de Illetes on Formentura… The Fat Lady is bursting into ‘Eye of the Tiger’.Winner: Spain. No contest. It’s an absolute haymaker from the old pro and Croatia is kissing the canvas. It’s seconds out.The verdict?And the overall winner is… Spain It’s a majority decision. The young pretender Croatia is beaten but not unbowed, down but not out. Cool Croatia is a great alternative for a summer holiday, with a beautiful coastline and exciting cities. But that knockdown in the last sealed it for Spain, which is as popular as ever with UK holidaymakers, and for good reason.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Round 3: Cheapest flightsOne of the Brits’ most popular holiday destinations, Spain is well served by cheap flights from the UK with budget airlines heading to both summer sun resorts on the Costas like Malaga and all-round weekend break choices such as Barcelona. Despite its rise in popularity with UK holidaymakers over the last decade, Croatia is still mostly a summer-only destination and so route choices are limited. Flights to Croatia cost slightly more as there is further to travel, but you can still get cheap flights from as little as £28.Winner: Spain. A few jabs, but no Sunday punch. The old-timer on the ropes does enough to get back in the bout. RelatedHoliday fight club: Spain v.

Senior leader Ashutosh also tweeted “What a boring speech of Modi Put every one to sleep See this pic carefully every one is sleeping” Top News Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech from the Red Fort mentioning Balochistan has set in motion a debate on motives linkages with Jammu & Kashmir and whether India can stay the course However the moot point being missed is the legal status of Balochistan The whole issue hinges on whether or not Kalat (as Balochistan was then called) was an Indian princely state or an independent non-Indian state under British rule If it is the latter then clearly what the Baloch nationalists say about Pakistan’s illegal occupation has merit The British came into contact with Kalat in 1839 seeking passage and provisions during the disastrous first Afghan war The British signed treaties with the Khan of Kalat in 1839 1841 1854 1862 and 1876 While each treaty eroded the Khan’s sphere of action and the territories of the Khanate all of them essentially recognised his independence For example the agreement of 1862 called the Khanate a neighbouring state of India and the 1876 treaty acknowledged the Khan as an independent ruler an ally and a friendly neighbour The legal status of Kalat as an independent state continued till 1947 It was on this basis that the Khan never joined the Chamber of Princes in Delhi and always maintained that they were not a part of Britain’s Indian empire While the 560-odd princely states in India belonged to Category A and were dealt with by the political department states like Kalat Nepal Bhutan and Sikkim were Category B states and dealt with by the external affairs department However for reasons that are not very clear the Government Of India Act 1935 treated the Khanate as a part of India In protest the Khan wrote to the British government demanding that the “restrictions and conditions imposed contrary to the terms of the treaty of 1876… may be withdrawn and rescinded and the independence of the Kalat government may be honoured scrupulously in accordance with the treaty” After his protest on June 10 1939 the British government informed the Khan that “His Excellency recognises the treaty of 1876 as fully valid in every respect and that it would henceforth form the relations between the British and Kalat” In March 1946 the Khan submitted a memorandum to the Cabinet Mission through his lawyer — none other than Muhammad Ali Jinnah The memorandum argued that: “On the transference of power in British India the subsisting treaties between the Khan of Kalat and the British government would come to an end and whatever obligations have been imposed on the Khan by these treaties will ipso facto terminate The consequence will be that the state of Kalat will become fully sovereign and independent in respect of both external and internal matters” As the Cabinet Mission could not find flaws with the legality of the demand it left the issue unresolved At a round table conference held in Delhi on August 4 1947 — attended by Lord Mountbatten the Khan of Kalat and Jinnah — it was decided that the “Kalat State will be independent enjoying the same status as it originally held in 1838” Jinnah also signed a standstill agreement with the Khan on August 4 1947 According to it “The government of Pakistan recognises Kalat as an independent sovereign state in treaty relations with the British government with a status different from that of Indian states” Thereafter the Khan declared the independence of Kalat on August 12 1947 two days before the creation of Pakistan The independence however was short-lived At the end of March 1948 Pakistan occupied Kalat and forced the Khan to sign the instrument of accession From the evidence it is clear that Kalat was not an Indian state Thus legally at least Pakistan’s occupation of Balochistan is dubious at best illegal at worst In either case there is merit in the argument of the Baloch nationalists that Balochistan is not an internal matter of Pakistan As Jinnah argued before the Cabinet Mission the association of Balochistan with India was “merely due to its connection with the British government” It is one of the ironies of history that Jinnah who as Kalat’s lawyer had argued for its independence and as governor general-designate of Pakistan agreed to its independence was later to force its accession to Pakistan The writer retired as special secretary in the cabinet secretariat Government of India For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsNew Delhi: Delhi
