first_imgMumbai, Jul 25 (PTI) The family of Khashaba Jadhav, who won Indias first individual Olympic medal, has put it up for auction to garner funds for building a wrestling academy named after him. “The decision to auction the bronze medal is a painful one but we are left with few options as the state government has reneged on its promise to build the academy,” Ranjit Jadhav, son of the famous wrestler, told PTI over phone from Satara district in western Maharashtra. “In 2009, at a wrestling event in Jalgaon, then state sports minister Dilip Deshmukh had announced that the government would set up a national-level wrestling academy, named after my late father, in Satara district,” Ranjit said.”After eight years, nothing has materialised. In December 2013, Rs 1.58 crore were sanctioned for the project. But the project has failed to take shape,” he said. In the 1952 Helsinki Olympics, Khashaba Jadhav, then 27, went on to create history by becoming the first Indian to win an Olympic medal (bronze) in an individual sport.The hockey team led by Balbir Singh had won India its first gold in the 1948 London Olympics.”My father was an introvert and never marketed his achievements. He was alive till 1984 but the government didnt felicitate him with an Arjuna Award, which came his way 16 years after his death. Why cant we honour accomplished people when they are alive?” asked Ranjit. PTI VT NRB CMlast_img read more

first_imgShare via Email Share on WhatsApp World Athletics Championships “It’s very easy to sit there and make all sorts of Gabby Logan-type judgments over three or four days and clear off back to Match of the Day,” said Coe, seemingly ignoring the fact that Logan also presents the BBC’s coverage of Diamond League athletics, Six Nations rugby, and other sports.“But it’s really important that we see the long-term development of our sport,” added Coe. “That’s not going to be done because we have challenges over ticketing in a stadium for three days. The problem I’ve got with that is it’s the way our sport is being portrayed by some of the people in that studio.”Poor crowds have been a major talking point, especially on Sunday when Dina Asher-Smith won a 100m silver medal, leading to the former Olympic heptathlon champion Denise Lewis accusing the IAAF of letting athletes down.However, Coe believes that the BBC would be better served talking about the athletics. “I’ve got people, whose judgment I do trust, who are saying it would be great if a 1min 42.4sec run and some great performances were being dissected,” he said. “The crowd is an easier subject to talk about rather than some of the more insightful stuff around the events. I accept that, that’s the world we live in.“There are places which are going to take longer for us to go to, but people have to believe this sport is theirs, it’s not just rooted in a handful of European capitals.”The BBC declined to comment but the Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker said that Coe had made a mistake. “Picking the wrong target in Gabby Logan,” he tweeted. “She’s just doing her job brilliantly as always. Maybe look closer to home.”However, Coe insisted again that athletes have been happy in Doha. “I was on the indoor, the outdoor track, they are not talking about the crowds. Can I just be a bit blunt about this, the athletes talking about externalities are probably not the ones who are going to be walking home with medals from here. Go figure.”Coe’s attacks on the BBC came less than 24 hours after its commentators Steve Cram and Paula Radcliffe, both friends of Coe, were criticised on social media for appearing to give Alberto Salazar, Mo Farah’s former coach, an easy ride on Tuesday night following his four-year ban from the US Anti-Doping Agency. news … we have a small favour to ask.

Rabat – Morocco’s Mohammed VI-B surveillance satellite detected Polisario’s provocative maneuvers on Sunday, January 6, in Mehriz, a town east of Morocco’s defense wall in Western Sahara.On Sunday, Polisario’s “army” carried out a military maneuver in the restricted region.The move will escalate tension between the front and Morocco. The United Nations is also expected to release a statement to express concerns over Polisario’s violation of the ceasefire agreement signed between the two parties in 1991. Read Also: Facts about Western Sahara Conflict that You Should KnowIn addition to the military maneuvers, Polisario’s self-styled President Ibrahim Ghali also inaugurated facilities east of Morocco’s defense wall.The news agency of the self-proclaimed Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR)reported that Ghali chaired a ceremony on Monday to inaugurate an “administrative complex in the fourth military region” in Mehriz.Read Also: Polisario Defies UN, Inaugurates Facilities East Morocco’s Defense WallAfter reporting on the inauguration ceremony, the separatist news agency deleted the publication; the article’s page now reads “Unfound Page.”The inauguration of the facilities is a blatant violation of UN resolutions which strongly warned against any action in buffer strips and the region east of Morocco’s defense wall.Read Also: Western Sahara: Everything You Should Know About Morocco’s Autonomy PlanThe violations came two months after the adoption of Resolution 2440 which clearly calls on Polisario to adhere to its commitments to the UN with respect to all restricted regions in Western Sahara. This is not the first time Moroccan military surveillance has detected Polisario’s provocative maneuvers in the region. In 2018, Morocco’s Mohammed VI-A satellite tracked Polisario’s movement and allegedly captured images of collusion between Polisario and Hezbollah. Morocco then cut diplomatic ties with Iran in May 2018.Launched in 2017, the Mohammed VI-A satellite is capable of taking 500 images daily. read more

TORONTO — A new survey says Canadian home prices weakened in September as a change in mortgage rules introduced in the summer appeared to keep some buyers out of the market.The Teranet-National Bank National Composite House Price Index released Wednesday shows that home prices fell 0.4% in September from the previous month.If sales continue to decline, a cumulative price drop of around five per cent is likely in a soft-landing scenario for the Canadian home resale marketThe drop was spread across six of the 11 Canadian cities in the study, with Victoria facing the steepest decline of 1.3%.Prices fell in Vancouver, down 1.2%, and Ottawa, down 0.8%.Other Canadian cities showing weakness were Montreal (down 0.6%), Edmonton (down 0.7%) and Victoria (1.3%).On the upside was Toronto, rising 0.1%, while both Calgary and Halifax rose 0.5%. Hamilton increased 0.3% in September from August.[np-related]On a national level, home prices are still 3.6% higher than they were a year earlier.The report offered further evidence of the summertime slowdown of the domestic economy, as well as the impact of mortgage regulations that were introduced by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty in July.Under the new rules, the maximum amortization period for government-insured mortgages would be reduced to 25 years from 30 years.National Bank senior economist Marc Pinsonneault said in a report that the regulation changes “undoubtedly contributed to cool the market.”But he also noted that third-quarter home sales for the cities in the survey fell eight per cent from the previous three month period, which could be a harbinger for lower house prices next year.“Price declines have occurred outside recessions when sales dropped a few quarters in a row, even if market conditions were overall balanced. We could see a repeat of that,” Pinsonneault said.“In our view, if sales continue to decline, a cumulative price drop of around five per cent is likely in a soft-landing scenario for the Canadian home resale market.”The Canadian PressAndrew Barr/National Post read more

Raquel Urtasun, an expert in artificial intelligence, is seen in Toronto on Friday, April 28, 2017. Uber has tabbed Urtasun, an associate professor at the University of Toronto, to lead a new driverless-car research hub in the city, its first outside the U.S. THE CANADIAN PRESS/ Erica Edwards/Uber Canada-HO MANDATORY CREDIT by Colin Perkel, The Canadian Press Posted May 8, 2017 11:18 am MDT Last Updated May 8, 2017 at 4:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Uber has hailed a prominent artificial-intelligence academic to lead a driverless-car project in Toronto — the ride-hailing company’s first such research hub outside the United States, its CEO announced Monday.In a blog post, Travis Kalanick said he was proud to have Raquel Urtasun, an associate professor at the University of Toronto, on board. He described her as “one of the world’s leading researchers” in the fields of machine perception and artificial intelligence.“Raquel will remain in Toronto to lead a new branch of our advanced technologies group — our first outside the U.S.,” Kalanick said in his blog. “Raquel’s work focuses on developing the software that allows self-driving cars to ‘see:’ recognizing objects so they can navigate the world smoothly and safely.”In an interview from San Francisco, Urtasun told The Canadian Press discussions with Uber began a few months ago. The lab has now begun operation with her and eight of her students with dozens of people still to be hired in the “near future” from what Kalanick described as the region’s “impressive” talent pool.A key area of focus, she said, will be what is called perception — essentially the brain of the self-driving car. That means coming up with formulas to interpret information from sensors such as video cameras about what’s happening around the vehicle — nearby cars, pedestrians, cyclists — and predict what they might do in the coming seconds.“It’s a complicated task and this is why we don’t have self-driving cars everywhere right now, but it’s definitely not an impossible quest,” Urtasun said.The lab will also focus on “localization.”“In any point in time, the car needs to know where it is in the world,” she said.Urtasun said she was not concerned about joining the company that is facing a lawsuit from Google’s self-driving car unit. The claim alleges Uber used stolen trade secrets to develop sensors for its autonomous vehicles. Urtasun said her research area is in a different area.“If I had doubts that Uber did something wrong, I would never have joined the company,” Urtasun said.She also acknowledged her hire as a high-profile woman by a company looking to change an image some have attacked as misogynist, saying she discussed the issue with Kalanick.“The company is doing everything necessary to change whatever the remaining issues are,” she said.The associate computer science professor, originally from Pamplona in Spain, has previously been an assistant professor at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago and a visiting professor in Switzerland. Her research interests include machine learning, computer vision, robotics and remote sensing.In February, she was awarded a fellowship given each year to Canada’s top six scientists and engineers for her work on machine perception for self-driving cars.While she won’t predict when self-driving cars might become a common sight, she does say those able to ply simple, controlled routes might be in place “relatively soon.”Kalanick said Toronto has become an important hub of artificial intelligence research, which he called “critical to the future of transportation.”“That’s why we’re also making a significant multi-year financial commitment as a platinum sponsor of the Vector Institute, which Raquel helped to set up as a co-founder,” Kalanick said.Urtasun is one of the co-founders of the independent, non-profit institute set up in March. Its aim is to push Canada to the forefront of research into artificial intelligence.The new lab will focus on improved mapping for autonomous cars but the company, which also does driverless-car research in San Francisco and Pittsburgh, said it had no plans to actually test the vehicles in Toronto.“Self-driving technology promises to make our roads safer, our environment healthier and our cities more livable,” Kalanick said. “While there’s still a lot of work to be done, we believe that the combination of our global ride-sharing network with the cutting-edge software and hardware being built by our teams will make this vision a reality.” Uber setting up Canadian driverless-car lab headed by Toronto AI expert read more

Photo: UN/MINUSTAH/Frederic Fath UNAMID Peacekeepers provide protection to displaced women and children from Anka and Umm Rai, North Darfur. Photo: Priyanka Chowdhury/UNAMID Speaking first on Haiti, John Ging, Director of the Operational Division at the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) told journalists at the UN Headquarters in New York that lack of funding has had a major impact on the humanitarian response to Hurricane Matthew that struck the island in early October. He reported that the humanitarian appeal for the country, amounting to about $120 million targeting some 750,000 people needing urgent support, has thus far received only 40 per cent funding. According to OCHA, 1.4 million Haitians have been directly affected by the hurricane including some 175,000 internally displaced who have been living in about 307 temporary shelters, including 86 schools.“Forty per cent [of the funding] means that 60 per cent of the [humanitarian work] is not being done. This means a lot of unnecessary suffering for people who have had their livelihoods and their homes completely wiped out,” highlighted Mr. Ging. He, however, added that thanks to the prior preparedness, including pre-deployment of humanitarian surge staff, prompt assistance was provided to hundreds of thousands of affected people. UN agencies, including its emergency food relief agency – World Food Programme (WFP) – has provided food assistance to about 520,000 people, and the UN agricultural agency – Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) – has helped clear agricultural land and provided seeds to ensure that the current planting season is not missed. Mr. Ging also said that programmes related shelter need further scaling up to respond to the humanitarian needs. On a related topic, the OCHA official told journalists that a cholera vaccination campaign in Haiti was launched on 8 November, targeting some 800,000 people for vaccination.Turning to the situation in Sudan, Mr. Ging said that 5.8 million people in the country need of some form of humanitarian assistance. Moreover, 3.2 million people are internally displaced (IDPs). “We have been dealing with this situation for many, many years,” he said, noting that he had visited strife-torn Darfur, where he had met many people that had been recently displaced. As well as hosting more than 2.6 million IDPs, “we have a situation of a protracted crisis for these people who are looking for solutions to their livelihood needs and also for rebuilding their lives. He said that his mission to the region had been very much focused on the issue of connecting humanitarian actions with development. “We [still] have a lot of humanitarian issues […] we have a lot of challenges in reaching all the people we need access to,” Mr. Ging explained, but, after so many years, people are also expecting the international community to help them with recovery, “and we in the humanitarian community absolutely echo that expectation.” To that end, he recalled that the World Humanitarian Summit had emphasized the links between humanitarian and development activities, including taking action earlier on development initiatives to help people rebuild their lives. “So the humanitarian appeal will continue to be something that we as humanitarians raise to international attention,” he said, noting that there is a funding gap of $555 million. “That means this is more evidence of how far we are falling short on the humanitarian side to meet the very basic support that people need in such circumstances,” Mr. Ging said, adding at the same time, that he had seen in Sudan “a lot of opportunities for helping people recover.” As such, OCHA is emphasizing with its development partners to get involved; “it is urgent and it is possible to remove the need for repetitive humanitarian appeals year after year. We should be doing much more in places like Darfur and particularly on the development side.” As for South Sudan, he said that of the three countries he had visited, the young African nation was the most alarming “in terms of the trajectory that [it] is on.” Indeed: “In every element of the functioning of the country, we are seeing a deterioration; obviously the humanitarian situation, as a consequence of the escalation in fighting,” as well as in the economy and the governance capacity. “It’s an extremely worrying situation.” Recalling that Adama Dieng, the UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, had been in South Sudan at the same time, World Humanitarian Summit, Mr. Ging reiterated that envoy’s warning that the escalation and the “ferocity” of the fighting could mean that the country may be heading towards genocide. “The gravity of the situation that the people of South Sudan face cannot be overstated; and this is of course on top of an already very grave humanitarian situation, both in terms of protection of civilians and also the physical needs of the population.”He went on to note that there are 6.1 million people in need of humanitarian assistance and 2.9 million that have been displaced since the conflict erupted in December 2013. “We as a humanitarian community are very concerned about a very fast deteriorating food insecurity situation; it has never been as bad as it is now and it is on a trajectory to get much worse, with 3.7 million people estimated to be severely food insecure – one million more than this time last year,” he said, stressing that children were bearing the brunt of the crisis.While he had been inspired by the dignity and hope the people of South Sudan were showing, he said all should realize that it is a situation and people are suffering immensely. “They are expecting the international community to step up,” he said, explaining that everywhere he went in South Sudan, he had heard “very reasonable and rational demands of more effective engagement by the international community and we have to, all of us, somehow mobilize.”Mr. Ging acknowledged that the donor community had been generous in funding humanitarian work in South Sudan. He also praised the outstanding work humanitarians are doing “in the most dangerous place to work right now.” He said that the humanitarian appeal was the most fully funded – at 75 per cent. read more

Noting increases in number of migrants, including children, attempting to reach European shores using the Central Mediterranean route, and consequent rise in number of deaths, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has called for safe and legal pathways for those who are fleeing conflict, poverty and depravation. According to UNICEF estimates, at least 849 people, including more than 150 children, perished at sea while trying to make the perilous crossing since January this year. “It is deeply concerning that vulnerable people, including thousands of children, are risking their lives to reach Europe’s shores using this incredibly dangerous route,” Afshan Khan, the UNICEF Regional Director and Special Coordinator for the Refugee and Migrant Crisis in Europe, said in a news release today. Since the start of the year, nearly 37,000 refugees and migrants – 13 per cent of them children – have reached Italy by sea via the Central Mediterranean. This is an increase of 42 per cent compared to the same time period last year.In particular, unaccompanied and separated children are at most risk, and these numbers too have seen a dramatic increase. In January and February this year, some 1,865 unaccompanied and separated children arrived in Italy, an increase of 40 per cent compared to the same period last year.This is further evidence that when safe and legal pathways to migration are cut off, desperate children and families will do whatever they can to flee conflict, poverty and depravationUNICEF also noted that recent good weather and calmer waters in the Mediterranean have been accompanied by a surge in refugees and migrants attempting to cross. During the Easter weekend (last weekend) alone, more than 8,300 were rescued from the sea between Libya and Italy. At least eight migrants were reported to have drowned over the weekend.“This is further evidence that when safe and legal pathways to migration are cut off, desperate children and families will do whatever they can to flee conflict, poverty and depravation,” noted Ms. Khan.As part of its global policy for children on the move, the UN agency has been calling for more action to protect child refugees and migrants, particularly unaccompanied children; end the detention of children seeking refugee status or migrating; and to promote measures to combat xenophobia, discrimination and marginalization in countries of transit and destination. It has also underlined the need to keep families together as the best way to protect children and give children legal status; to ensure that all refugee and migrant children have opportunities to learn, access to health care and other quality services; and to address the underlying causes of large scale movements of refugees and migrants. read more

first_imgFor many publishers in 2017, video has become a significant format for audience engagement. In October, Hearst’s popular food site, Delish, had its best month ever, according to data from comScore. The brand saw a rise to 25 million unique visitors, a 43 percent increase over the same period last year, as well as a spike on social platforms, growing to 15 million followers on Facebook, a 100 percent increase over last year. With 500 million video views per month, Folio: spoke with Delish’s editorial director, Joanna Saltz, on the food site’s recipe for success. Joanna SaltzFolio: Tell us about Delish’s content strategy and the audience the brand is hoping to reach.Joanna Saltz: When I came on board two and a half years ago to relaunch Delish, my team and I felt like food media had become too much of an exclusionary experience. It was always about watching other people—more talented people, frankly—make food behind a counter. There was nothing about it that was inviting … like a cool chef party going on that regular people weren’t invited to.We wanted to make a space that was for everyone — people who liked to eat more than they actually liked to cook. We created a content strategy that was as much about delicious, easy recipes as it was about food as a fun lifestyle and cultural phenomenon. We produce nearly 200 recipes a month, but we’re also creating videos about our favorite brands, restaurants, and stores, or celebrities and their eating habits. We package everything with so much personality and humor that you watch because you’re entertained — and you learn something while doing so. When I can compel someone who wasn’t even planning to cook this weekend to make something because it looks fun and easy enough, that’s a huge win.Folio: We saw that Delish had its most successful month ever in October, up 43 percent in unique visitors over the same period last year. What do you think contributed to this growth? Saltz: We’re really big on turning non-moments into food moments. As a culture, we’re always thinking about our next meal, so why does media only obsess about food around holidays like Thanksgiving? So we spent a lot of time this past year strategically putting Delish in places food doesn’t usually go, like creating recipes and content around movie openings or season premieres of TV shows. We had a nice win with our “Stranger Things ” cake this fall, and our audience can’t get enough of “Harry Potter” and “Hocus Pocus” anything. Their fans share our content, and our brand gets in front of eyeballs that maybe it wouldn’t have otherwise.But to be fair, I don’t think any one piece of content contributed to the growth. I think that more and more people are recognizing us as a brand that’s different from the sea of food video producers out there, and they want to come hang out with us.Folio: What about your you describe your social strategy?Saltz: We’re obviously video-heavy — we produce 60 videos a week: fun recipes, long-form features, and episodic series like our runaway hit WTFood?, which is hosted by our deputy editor Lindsay Funston. But we also feel totally comfortable covering royal weddings and other random food-adjacent content—we want to be part of those conversations too. We really try to approach our social platforms as if we’re a person, not a brand. What would your funny, dialed-in friend share? That’s our barometer.Folio: What social platforms have you found to be the most successful for Delish content? How do you generally measure that success?Saltz: Our content plays out so well on Facebook and on Instagram because it’s made to be shared. We definitely look at video views — we now know how a video is going to do within its first 6 minutes of being published. But we’re always more interested in engagement: Are people talking about it? Are they tagging their friends? Are they clicking through to the recipe? It’s one thing to get someone to watch — that’s not too hard in this day and age when we’re all assaulted by video — but if you can make someone stop, maybe laugh for a moment, and then share it with a friend, you’ve made your brand infinitely more memorable.To that end, our social growth has been organic. The people who get our content truly want it, and their friends want in on that fun. That’s why I think we’ve grown so nicely.Folio: What do you think sets apart Delish from its competitors and makes it so appealing to users?Saltz: From the outset, we wanted to create content that felt so different that you’d immediately know a Delish video without even seeing the branding. Voice and vision is really important to us. From a voice perspective, our videos are loaded with soundbites and punctuated with funny kickers, and we’re really particular about the music we choose. But also HDM’s creative director Nick Neubeck has always pushed us to make our content as visually surprising as possible: quirky graphics, emojis, recognizable pop culture moments. We were really the first to do that in the food space — we used them as tricks to make our audience and their friends feel as welcome as possible, to want to come play in our food space, because they weren’t seeing our faces. Nothing we make feels cold or machine-made.Folio: Can you give us a glimpse into what the workplace atmosphere is like at the Delish office? What does a typical day look like?Saltz: I’m sure everyone says this, but nothing about the Delish workplace feels like work. We have two test kitchens constantly blaring Drake, and we’ve turned a corner of the Hearst Tower into what feels like a food circus. Our meeting room, the Pizza Lounge, has more food beanbags than actual open floor space.A typical day is chaos, but in the best way — we usually have two shoots going on in our kitchens and one person shooting out in the field. We’re putting out around six videos and 20 stories a day, so we’re working hard to get all that content approved and posted. Food from the test kitchen will show up throughout the afternoon and while people attack it like vultures, a debate will break out over the best Starburst color … and we’ll get totally derailed. By the way, if anyone reading thinks anything other than “red”, we’ll have words.Folio: What are your plans for Delish moving forward and evolving in the future?Saltz: Right now, we’re really interested in telling the bizarre food stories you won’t see anywhere else — the contestants at the Beer Pong Championships, or the guy who’s been prepping to win the world record for building the most gingerbread houses. But we’re also expanding in the food space as well. We have an insane cookbook coming out in fall 2018, a TV pilot in the works, and we’re working on plans for a major event and new test kitchen that I hope will blow people’s minds.

first_imgSlender lorisTwitter [Representational Image]A severely injured slender loris was rescued by the Press Club staff at Bengaluru’s Cubbon Park on Sunday. The Press Club canteen staff comprising Mahesh, Naveen and Rajesh were at the park at around 9 am when they found the rare mammal surrounded by crows and stray dogs.It was badly hurt and had injury marks on all paws. According to reports, it may have been used for black magic owing to its unique features such as bright eyes and was abandoned after its use. The rescuers took also ascertained that the animal was severely malnourished.They contacted civic body Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and forest officials of Wildlife Rehabilitation and Rescue Centre (WRRC) at Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBP). The slender loris was handed over to the authorities.These arboreal mammals have seen a steady decline in its population due to poaching and cutting down of rain forests. Some of the natives believe that the slender loris has some medicinal values or magical powers due to which they are illegally smuggled.According to the reports, slender loris was not seen at Cubbon Park in the past several years and it is the first incidence of a rescue operation in the city. Slender loris used to be common in the park years ago. A decline in its number was seen in the past few years due to the greater change in the habitats.The BBMP and forest officials have urged people to inform concerned bodies about animal cruelties or injured animals.last_img read more

first_imgSM Rezaul KarimAround 66 per cent buildings in capital Dhaka and its adjoining areas under the jurisdiction of Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (RAJUK) have been constructed in an unplanned way, said housing and public works minister SM Rezaul Karim.”Of the buildings, some have no approval at all while some others flouted approved designs,” he told UNB in an interview citing a recent survey report.The minister, however, said they are taking actions against the very risky buildings and those constructed violating the building code. “Some buildings have already been demolished while the owners of others moved the court and some have given undertakings to modify the buildings.”He also said the officials concerned will be held responsible alongside the owner if any building is constructed illegally. “This will ensure accountability and ultimately help change the mentality (of constructing building illegally).”Rezaul said it will require approval from four organisations instead of 16 to pass a plan for constructing buildings in the RAJUK areas.The approval of building plan needs clearance for land use, non-objection certificate (NOC) from Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (not applicable for the areas where there is no movement of aircraft), NOC from law enforcement agencies for constructing buildings near Key Point Installations (KPIs) and NOC from the Fire Service (only for the construction of over 10-storey buildings).The minister said an automation process has been introduced in design approval which will also reduce the time and hassle of service-seekers. “Anyone can apply for a plan using a computer or a mobile sitting from his/her residence. No one needs to visit any government office to get the plan passed,” he said, adding that if all the requirements are fulfilled, then the online application will be accepted.The decision will be implemented fully from 1 May next, he said.About flouting the building designs for lack of monitoring, Rezaul said this will not happen anymore.He also said a digital monitoring system will be introduced to check the violation of the building code and approved designs.About malpractices in RAJUK, the minister said he will bring a radical change in Dhaka’s development regulator.He also said they are thinking about bifurcating RAJUK to bring dynamism into its activities. “It’s impossible to manage up to Savar, Manikganj and Narayanganj from Dhaka. RAJUK will be divided into two parts like two city corporations if the prime minister gives her consent to it.”About RAJUK’s manpower shortage, he said they have sought manpower from the public administration ministry.From now on, a flat owner needs not to pay fees for transferring his or her flat after buying it from the National Housing Authority, Rezaul said. “Our responsibility will end with the handover of the flat.”He also said he has directed for making the national housing policy a time-befitting one. “One used to need 53 days to transfer the house after the death of his/her father/mother. But this will be done in one day now. Besides, a file will be approved by a single officer instead of clerk, assistant director, deputy director and director.”Asked about his challenges, the minister has initially identified three factors — mitigating public sufferings, creating public-friendly institutions and stopping public harassment. “Insha-allah, I’ll able to accomplish these,” he said.About the Detailed Area Plan (DAB), he said a new committee will be constituted as many ministers who were its members are not part of the present cabinet. “Steps will be taken to implement it through a meeting of the new committee.”Rezaul said they will issue directives soon to use covers while constructing buildings to prevent dust swirling and accidents.About constructing eight satellite towns around Dhaka as per the directives of the prime minister, he said works on Jhilmil, Purbachal and Uttara Phase-3 are underway while more will be set up in Keraniganj and Ashulia areas.He also said Purbachal will be the most modern, digital and environment-friendly town of Dhaka. “All the civic amenities which are not even present in Gulshan and Banani areas will be there for its dwellers. No commercial or educational institution and clinic will be allowed to run haphazardly,” he said.There will be a certain standard for constructing buildings there. “No one can construct a high-rise at one’s will. There’ll be strict monitoring.”last_img read more

first_imgIt’s a veritable Loot Crate-a-palooza this week, and not just because I’m catching up after PAX East and being sick. Loot Crate sent us their April QUEST crate and DUEL Loot Anime crate, and I picked up a third, con-only LootCon 2016 crate at PAX East.We’ll start with the weakest of the three. I love what Loot Crate usually does, but their LootCon crate is pretty underwhelming. It doesn’t have a specific theme, and feels mostly like a box full of leftovers. The crate includes a Captain America t-shirt with a blueprint of his shield (easily the best of the package), a plush Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of If I Make One More Joke About This Movie I’m Going to Get So Much Hate Mail armored Batman that I swear was in a previous Loot Crate, an Uncharted 4 lanyard, a Green Lantern luggage tag, and a The Walking Dead Bob action figure. Solid picks, but thematically disjointed and generally just not my thing.Fortunately, the QUEST Loot Crate and DUEL Loot Anime crate easily make up for it. The QUEST Loot Crate comes with a drinking horn from History’s Vikings, along with a leather neckstrap for it. The box also includes a t-shirt of Jareth from Labyrinth (rest in piece, David Bowie), a silicone D20 ice cube mold, an Uncharted 4 mini poster, and a pair of Harry Potter horcrux socks. And again the molded, enameled Loot Crate pin is fantastic, with a D20-in-shield design.The DUEL Loot Anime crate made me even more excited, not for a specific item in the crate, but for a specific anime used. This is the first Loot Anime crate to include something from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, which is a fantastic, completely crazy, and (outside of North America) surprisingly culturally influential anime and manga series you can watch on Hulu and Crunchyroll. It’s a purple hat with a chibi Jotaro Kujo in front of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure logo, and the underside of the brim has chibi versions of the different characters and Stands from Part 3 (Stardust Crusaders).If that’s not enough to get hype over, the Loot Anime crate also has an amazing t-shirt of Godzilla fighting Ultraman, a pair of Yu-Gi-Oh socks, an anime-themed Superfight deck, and an Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright mini-briefcase business card holder. And the phone charm design is two fists pounding each other over a fighting game bar. Again, Loot Crate has made their subscription worthwhile to any nerd who likes collecting stuff.last_img read more

first_img Posted by Travelweek Group Tuesday, December 18, 2018 Tags: Protection, Transportation Sharecenter_img Up to $2,400 in compensation with proposed new passenger protection plan OTTAWA — Draft regulations for the federal government’s new airline passenger protection plan will be published this Saturday Dec. 22.Air passengers who are bumped from overbooked flights or forced to sit through long delays could receive up to $2,400 in compensation under proposed regulations for the government’s long-promised passenger bill of rights.The proposed compensation will use a sliding scale, with larger airlines and longer delays requiring bigger compensation payments. Payments to passengers whose flights are delayed will max out at $1,000 and cancellations at $2,400, but it will be up to the passenger to file a claim with the airlines.Once draft regulations are published Dec. 22, Canadians will have 60 days to comment, meaning there may be one last battle between consumer advocates and airlines over the breadth of the proposed regulations.Consumer advocates said yesterday that they planned to push the government to further tighten rules around tarmac delays and when an airline can get out of paying compensation.“We want to make sure that the government doesn’t take any steps back in what they’ve already announced, and, if possible, we can move them forward even further,” said Ian Jack, managing director of communications and government relations for the Canadian Automobile Association.Gabor Lukacs, with the advocacy group Air Passenger Rights, said the proposed rules don’t make it easy for passengers to receive compensation when things go wrong.“The public is being deceived here by the government. This has been an industry-friendly legislation that the minister cynically calls an air passenger bill of rights,” Lukacs said.The draft regulations lay out the minimum standards airlines will have to follow for situations in their control, or face a $25,000 fine. The aim is to have the rules take effect by next summer.More news:  CIE Tours launches first-ever River Cruise CollectionAside from situations beyond their control, there are loopholes that could allow an airline to get off the hook for compensation, specifically mechanical issues as defined by the airlines that make it unsafe to fly. Advocates are already calling for a tighter definition so the loophole isn’t abused.Transport Minister Marc Garneau was adamant airlines won’t mess around with safety and dismissed the idea that companies will look for ways to get out of compensating passengers.“If that were to happen – and I don’t believe for one second it will happen – there would be measures taken to penalize them,” Garneau said.The regulations would also force airlines to automatically seat children under age 14 near their parents rather than require them to pay an additional fee to select their own seats. The rules allow airlines to select seats one seat or one row away from parents for older children.The regulations would also require airlines to provide food, water, air conditioning and use of bathrooms during tarmac delays, but not require a flight unload passengers until a delay hits three hours.However, the three-hour limit can get one 45- minute extension if the flight is likely to take off during that period.A Senate committee recommended no more than 90 minutes after a high-profile incident at the Ottawa airport where two Air Transat flights sat on the sweltering tarmac for hours.“We chose a time of three hours that … will be applicable to all airlines that we think is fair and that basically achieves that balance between recognizing that at some point you’ve got to let people off; and on the other hand the other part of it is, people do want to get to their destination,” Garneau said.More news:  Sunwing offers ultimate package deal ahead of YXU flights to SNU, PUJScott Streiner, the chairman of the Canadian Transportation Agency, says a key aspect of the rules is an expectation that airlines clearly communicate with passengers about the status of their flight.A federal analysis pegged the cost to airlines of the new regulations at $2.75 per passenger, and Streiner said it’s not clear if airlines will pass those costs along to consumers.On compensation to passengers, Streiner said the airlines asked for levels that wouldn’t be “punitive.”“Many Canadians came forward and proposed various levels of compensation. I have to say that we did not, in fact, when we consulted Canadians on this, get very many people proposing extremely high levels of compensation,” Streiner said.WestJet’s Vice-President, Industry, Corporate and Airport Affairs, Mike McNaney, commented on the federal government’s announcement, says that as a company, “taking care of our guests is central to our brand and fundamental to our business.”McNaney said that once the draft regulations are released on Dec. 22, WestJet “will review the regulations for potential impact on the obligations of our partners in the air travel supply chain,” including federal government agencies, along with potential impacts on airfares and consumers.“We look forward to the opportunity to participate in the upcoming public consultation to ensure the draft regulations achieve the appropriate balance sought by the Minister of Transport.”With files from The Canadian Press << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

holding firm ostensibly for a strategic buyout soon by the world’s largest retail giant Walmart Inc according to documents it filed for regulatory approvals "Documents filed by Flipkart with the Singapore’s Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) indicate that the holding company has become a private firm – Flipkart Pte Ltd in Singapore where it is registered" business intelligence platform Papervc Founder Vivek Durai told IANS on Friday In a regulatory filing with ACRA on Thursday the city-based e-commerce behemoth said it concluded a second buyback of shares from a set of its investors for $35046 million in a transaction that closed on 27 April "The buyback and the subsequent conversion to private company status appear to be part of a series of steps aimed at easing a proposed acquisition by Walmart" Chennai-based Durai said Though the buyback was on 27 April Flipkart filed the documents on 3 May It has obviously paid from the $25-billion funds it raised from Soft Bank Vision Fund Microsoft E-Bay and other investors last year "The buyback will enable the e-commerce giant to bargain for a favourable deal with the US-based Walmart which is eyeing a majority or controlling equity stake in it to foray into the multi-billion-dollar Indian retail space" a market analyst told IANS earlier The e-commerce major purchased 1895574 redeemable preference shares and 174319 non-redeemable preference shares for $35046 million from a set of investors in a transaction that closed on 27 April The decade-old firm’s first buyback of shares was on 7 December 2017 when it spent a whopping $86915 million to buy 7283175 redeemable preference shares and 2301456 non-redeemable preference shares at $853 per share "As the company needs to have 50 shareholders to become a private entity 94 of the 144 shareholders would have exited in the twin buyback rounds while the remaining would have partially (15-50 percent) sold their equity stake" hinted Durai According to another analyst who declined to be named Flipkart has converted into a private firm so that Walmart could come on board as a strategic investor for controlling stake after the exit of so many institutional and individual investors Binny Bansal (left) and Sachin Bansal co-founders Flipkart "The deal between Flipkart and Walmart is a done thing as evident from the exit of majority of its investors There is no reason otherwise for it to turn into a private firm after being a holding company over a decade" hinted the analyst "Walmart has been losing ground to Amazon in their traditional US market while Flipkart in India has managed to maintain its lead albeit slender over Amazon It’s not surprising that Walmart wants to take over Flipkart which has built an exceptional engineering talent at many levels of operations" affirmed Durai "Flipkart which raised $611 billion in 18 rounds of funding since 2009 and bought back over 26 lakh shares worth $1320 million ($132 billion) places its valuation at $1769 billion" said Durai The valuation is based on the buyback price the holding firm paid to investors including premium With institutional investors holding majority of the combined stake ranging between 2079 percent (highest) by SoftBank and 611 percent by E-Bay (lowest) the share of co-founders Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal is 55 percent and 525 percent According to the filings the company also bought shares from its present and former employees on 13 December 2017 for $100 million that were given as stock options Of the major institutional investors and venture partners besides Soft Bank Tiger Global has 2055 percent stake Nasper 1283 percent Accel Partners 644 percent and Tencent 569 percent among othersbut when the bureau said an outside group helped them
