KMC to create dedicated wing to thwart filling up of waterbodies

first_imgKolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) will soon constitute a dedicated wing to curb filling up waterbodies. The move comes in the wake of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee directing her government officials to be vigilant against such acts and take the issue of water conservation very seriously.”We have decided to create a separate department for thwarting attempts of filling up of waterbodies. We are also developing a website which will have a mapping of the ponds in the city and will constantly update the various notifications regarding conservation of waterbodies,” Mayor Firhad Hakim said after visiting the site of a large waterbody at ward 124 in Thakurpukur, Behala. Hakim had received complaints regarding filling up of the waterbody.

We need to take conservation of water very seriously, otherwise our future generation will face serious problems,” he said. Bhattacharya said that a portion of the waterbody was gradually being filled up. “The Mayor has informed me that KMC will put a fencing around the pond,” he added.

They immediately responded and took necessary action within 24 hours,” Hayat said. “It gives me great pleasure to find that my initiative to directly connect with the residents of Kolkata through the ‘Talk to Mayor’ programme is yielding results. We may not be able to resolve all the issues but we are committed to work to the best of our ability,” Hakim said. The Talk to Mayor programme is held every Wednesday, where citizens call on a helpline number and inform their problems directly to the Mayor.last_img read more

Tory critic says old age security report shows need to rethink age

first_imgOTTAWA – Record-high spending forecasts for the old age security program show a need to rethink the age of eligibility, among other measures to keep it sustainable, the opposition Tories say.The chief actuary’s report forecasts spending to hit about $247 billion by 2060 — five times what it is slated to be this year — due to a coming wave of retirements and people living longer, meaning they draw on old age benefits longer than the program originally envisioned.The previous Conservative government raised the age of eligibility for OAS to 67 from 65 to save on costs and prod people to work longer.The Liberals reversed the decision in their first budget, saying the Tories had made the change without any data to support it.The data in the report supports what the Tories tried to do — and what is being done in many other countries — for the program’s long-term financial health, said Conservative social development critic Karen Vecchio.The chief actuary’s report estimates that returning the age of eligibility to 65 will increase spending, which the government says it knew would happen. A spokesman for Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said not doing so would put 100,000 seniors in poverty and cost low-income seniors about $13,000 a year in benefits.Vecchio said the government needs to come up with a long-term plan for OAS to ensure sustainability in its funding without having to raise taxes.Unlike the Canada Pension Plan, people don’t prepay for old age benefits, which are instead funding through annual tax revenues.A February presentation to a group of deputy ministers said “younger generations may be required to pay higher taxes” to cover a shortfall between tax revenues and OAS spending if the retirement age remains at 65, Canadians live longer and there aren’t enough new workers to replace the ones that are going to retire.“It’s not about raising taxes, it’s about expanding the (tax) base,” Vecchio said.The parliamentary budget officer has said old age security is sustainable in the long-term. The actuarial report suggests as much by noting that spending as a percentage of the overall economy would rise by 2030 and fall through to 2060 as economic growth and resulting tax revenues offset rising costs.Costs to the program are also expected to be offset by an expansion to CPP that the chief actuary estimates will mean $3 billion less in spending on the guaranteed income supplement in 2060 and reduce overall spending on OAS benefits, which are scaled back above $75,000 in annual income.NDP pensions critic Scott Duvall said the Liberals must still do more to help Canadians retire comfortably, including a promised seniors price index to ensure seniors benefits keep pace with rising costs.last_img read more

Jayalalithaa writes to Modi again on Sri Lanka

The Sri Lankan strategy of not releasing the fishing boats, the sole source of livelihood of the poor fishermen, was further aggravating the situation. At present, 30 fishing boats were in Sri Lankan custody and were facing the risk of damage beyond repair with the impending advent of the monsoon, Ms. Jayalalithaa said.The Chief Minister reiterated that India should not treat the International Maritime Boundary Line with Sri Lanka as a settled question as the constitutionality of the 1974 and 1976 agreements had been challenged in the Supreme Court. Urging him to secure the release of these fishermen and their craft along with the 21 others and their 30 boats who are already in Sri Lankan custody, Ms. Jayalalithaa requested Mr. Modi to use all diplomatic channels to ensure that “our fishermen are allowed to pursue their livelihood with freedom and peace of mind in their traditional waters.” Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jeyaram  has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again, expressing concern over the repeated arrest of fishermen from Tamil Nadu by the Sri Lankan Navy, The Hindu newspaper reportedThis is the third time in a week that fishermen had been apprehended. Seven fishermen in a motorised boat set sail for fishing from Therespuram fishing base of Tuticorin District on September 26. They were apprehended in the Gulf of Mannar area by the island navy on September 29 and taken to Negombo in Sri Lanka. “In spite of the several steps being taken by my Government with an accommodative frame of mind to devise a permanent solution to this sensitive livelihood issue, the situation at sea remains precarious with the dubious actions of the Sri Lankan Government. I have been requesting the Government of India to wage a strong diplomatic offensive to uphold the rights and interests of our Indian fishermen from Tamil Nadu. The Sri Lankan Government continues its series of arrests of our fishermen while fishing in their traditional waters,” she said. read more

Liverpool Arsenal Chelsea win on dramatic derby day in EPL

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk turned away in disgust. The Kop fell silent in disappointment. Everton fans likely breathed a sigh of relief at the other end of Anfield.A tense and hard-fought Merseyside derby looked destined to finish in a goalless stalemate Sunday after Van Dijk skied a speculative, mishit shot high into the air — and seemingly out of play — in the sixth minute of injury time.Then came the most dramatic ending imaginable.The ball bounced on top of the crossbar not just once but twice, firstly off the fingertips of Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Time seemed to stand still as the ball dropped down to Liverpool striker Divock Origi to nod into the net from a meter out to secure a 1-0 win in extraordinary circumstances.“For me, the situation was finished when the ball left (Van Dijk’s) foot,” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said, scratching his head.Klopp had reacted to the goal by running onto the field and punching the air, before jumping into the arms of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker.“I didn’t want to be disrespectful,” Klopp said, “but I couldn’t stop myself. It just happened.”By losing in the cruelest of ways, Everton remained without a win at Anfield since 1999.If Liverpool goes on to win the English league title for the first time since 1990, the team might just look back on those final, dramatic seconds against Everton as a pivotal moment in the season.Second-placed Liverpool moved back to within two points of Manchester City after 14 games in the Premier League. City won the title last season by a record 19 points but it promises to be much closer a year on.There were also wins for Arsenal and Chelsea on what proved to be a thrilling day of local derbies in the English top flight.___ARSENAL POWERS ONArsenal moved above Tottenham, on goal difference, into fourth place thanks to a 4-2 win over its fierce north London rival in a game that had it all: Penalties, a red card, clashes between players and fans lighting flares in the stands.The victory extended Arsenal’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 19 matches, underscoring the excellent work done by manager Unai Emery in his first season at the club.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted a penalty in the 10th minute to put Arsenal ahead. Britain’s Press Association reported that a Tottenham supporter was arrested for throwing a banana skin onto the field after Aubameyang scored and celebrated in front of away fans.Tottenham replied with two goals in four minutes — from Eric Dier and then Harry Kane from the spot — for a 2-1 halftime lead. Dier celebrated his equalizer by making a shush gesture in front of Arsenal fans and it prompted a scuffle between both sets of players, with substitutes also getting involved in the squabble.Aubameyang equalized in the 56th, with a beautiful curling shot before substitute Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira sent the home fans into a frenzy with goals of their own in the 74th and 77th. Fans lit flares in the stands after the last two goals.Tottenham had centre back Jan Vertonghen sent off in the second half.Arsenal achieved the win without playmaker Mesut Ozil, with the club citing “back spasms” as the reason for his latest non-appearance.KANTE MAKES AMENDSDays after being on the end of some rare criticism, N’Golo Kante showed just why he is such an important player for Chelsea.The France midfielder set up the first goal in Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Fulham by breaking up play near halfway, driving forward at pace, and then laying the ball off for Pedro Rodriguez to score in the fourth minute.It was typical scavenging work by Kante, who was called out publicly in midweek by his coach Maurizio Sarri for his poor performance in Chelsea’s 3-1 loss to Tottenham last weekend. Kante — arguably the world’s best defensive midfielder — is playing further forward for Chelsea this season to accommodate Jorginho, a deep-lying midfield playmaker signed in the off-season.Substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored Chelsea’s second goal in the 82nd minute, with the win lifting Sarri’s team back to third place and seven points behind leader Manchester City.___More AP English soccer: and Douglas is at Douglas, The Associated Press read more

Multotec coal sampling technology helps ensure high quality

first_imgAccurate sampling of product is providing coal mining operations with a distinct advantage. By creating a clear understanding of what raw material quality is being supplied, process managers will achieve an early indication of the final product grade and yields that can be anticipated. Willem Slabbert, Applications and Process Manager at Multotec, says that with accurate and unbiased information, better optimisation decisions can be made regarding how the ore is best beneficiated, and whether a high yield intermediate middling, or high quality final product with lower yield will be produced.“A composite sample will provide a result that is fully representative of the quality of the whole, whether done on a two hourly daily plant production or batch sample. It is also an important facet of a coal operation to allay concerns that out-of specification coal is being supplied. Correct sampling designs facilitate this process by providing the opportunity of achieving the capture of accurate and precise data of the relevant product,” he continues.Rolf Steinhaus, Sampling Specialist at Multotec, says that Multotec has always participated actively in applying sampling best practice and ISO standards in the coal industry, and among other commodities including iron ore, base metals, gold, platinum, heavy mineral sands and manganese. “Our primary focus is on providing reliable and accurate sampling solutions that can be validated by a 3rd party. There is a solid footprint of operational sampling plants and individual sampling machines Multotec can refer to throughout the South African coal mining industry,” says Steinhaus.This in-depth expertise and experience enables Multotec to engineer fit-for-purpose sampling plants capable of achieving successful results. Multotec says its ongoing investment into research and development, in conjunction with its licensor Siebtechnik GmbH in Germany, “has played a major role in positioning Multotec coal sampling technology as one of the most credible in the industry today.” Typical coal sampling applications include plant feed (raw coal), product low ash or middling coal, discard streams and contractual sampling stations. A sampling plant in the coal sector would generally include a primary cross belt or cross stream sampler, sub-divisions of the primary increment after crushing, and increment splitting to ergonomic composite sizes to provide separate physical and chemical samples, the latter often in triplicate.“Multotec sampling solutions can be adapted to accommodate the different maintenance and control strategies of individual customers, extending from supplying a single sampling machine through to supplying full sampling systems,” says Steinhaus. Multotec’s skilled technical maintenance crews support its primary samplers and sampling plants in the field by undertaking regular sampling audits or inspections to verify that the sampling is performed in accordance with the widely recognised ISO 13909 mechanical coal sampling standards (or similar internationally recognised norms ) and application parameters. In recent years, Multotec has engineered and supplied close to 15 sampling stations to both large and small suppliers in the local coal industry as well as many more individual primary samplers throughout industry including some at the large coal export terminal, RBCT in Richards Bay, KwaZulu Natal.last_img read more

Star Marine Infinite Ammo brings Contra to iOS

first_imgRead more at IndieGames For those of you who grew up with a NES as the console under your TV, there is a new iOS game that will bring you back to your childhood. Titled Star Marine: Infinite Ammo, the app borrows heavily from the NES classic Contra and its sequels. There is no word on whether or not the classic Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A) will work to get you 30 lives, but the gameplay looks to be enough to satisfy your need to blast aliens into oblivion.From the famous scatter gun to having to hang from the ceiling while firing your weapon, the title looks to be an excellent homage to one of the most popular game franchises of the 80’s. I can remember the white-knuckled grip I had on my controller during the epic boss-battles for each level, which Star Marine looks to recreate.While I am excited about playing one of my retro favorites, the gameplay may be hindered by its controls. Using a touchscreen to control a game that is modeled to emulate a fast action experience hasn’t really been successful in the past. Running it on an iPad may give you enough space to keep your fingers from blocking the action, but I don’t see this being the case when playing the game on an iPhone. There simply isn’t enough screen real-estate for an action title like this. Still, it’s exciting to see that classic titles are influencing modern day game development. The game costs $1.99 and was released in the App Store last Thursday. You can watch the official preview trailer and a video review from Appolicious below to help decide if it’s worth a purchase.last_img read more

Image: PA Wire/PA Imagescenter_img Greg Clarke (file pic). Follow us: THE CHAIRMAN OF England’s Football Association said Thursday the governing body’s failure to respond after a youth coach’s conviction for sexually abusing young players was “appalling”.Barry Bennell, who worked for Crewe Alexandra, Manchester City, Stoke City and several junior teams in northwest England, was given a four-year sentence for raping a British boy on a football tour of Florida in 1994 and a nine-year sentence for 23 offences against six boys in England in 1998.Yet when approached to comment on Bennell in 1997 by a television documentary crew, the FA refused all requests for interviews.“That is appalling,” Greg Clarke, who became FA chairman in August, told reporters at Wembley Stadium on Thursday.“We’ve got 8,500 safeguarding officers out there in the community and I wrote to 30,000 clubs today to raise their awareness.“These are heinous crimes and they need to be investigated by the police and they will get our support.”- ‘No hiding place’ -Thursday also saw British charity the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) announce it had launched a new telephone helpline after four English former footballers said they were abused by their coaches during childhood.“There must be no hiding place for sexual abuse in our national game and there may be many others who suffered through such horrors as young players, but have never come forward,” said NSPCC chief executive Peter Wanless in a statement released on Thursday.“We welcome the FA’s commitment to helping those in the game get the help and support they need.”Earlier, former Manchester City and England forward David White became the fourth ex-player to allege abuse by a youth coach, following previous announcements by Andy Woodward, Steve Walters and Paul Stewart.White, Woodward and Walters all allege they were abused by Bennell.Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Stewart, capped three times by England, said he was repeatedly sexually assaulted by an unnamed man who threatened to kill his family if he told anyone.Sky News reported Thursday that 11 people have now approached Cheshire Police in northwest England with information regarding alleged football-related abuse and that officers are now in the process of contacting them. No arrests have been made.- Newcastle allegations -Meanwhile The Guardian said it had been approached by a former Newcastle United player, whose identity the newspaper did not reveal, alleging he had been the victim of abuse while at the northeast club.The ex-player has named George Ormond as the offender, claiming he was sexually abused by a man who has already had a six-year prison sentence for convictions involving boys from the club’s youth system over a 24-year period.Both Crewe, a club renowned for its youth development system, and Manchester City have opened investigations into Bennell’s links with their clubs.Crewe’s director of football Dario Gradi, the club’s manager between 1983 and 2007, said he knew nothing about Bennell’s behaviour until around 1994.“I would like to express sympathy to the victims of Barry Bennell not only at Crewe Alexandra, but at other clubs in the north west,” Gradi said in a statement.“The first I knew of Barry Bennell’s crimes was when he was arrested in the United States in 1994. I knew nothing of his crimes before this time when he was employed by us.”A brief statement issued by City to Britain’s Press Association said: “The club is aware of allegations that Barry Bennell had an association with Manchester City in the 1980s.“As a result the club is currently undertaking a thorough investigation of any past links he might have had with the organisation.”– © AFP 2016The42 is on Instagram!

Tony Mokbel hearing continues

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Mokbel pleaded guilty on April 18 and sought several adjournments to prepare plea material. But in September, in an unrelated case, it was indicated that some affidavits had not been sworn in by police when getting search warrants and the practice might have been prevalent. The judge in that case then ruled out evidence that had come from the unsworn affidavits. Notorious crime boss Tony Mokbel pleaded guilty earlier this week over major drug trafficking offences in April. Upon hearing the development of the unrelated case, Mokbel then decided to try and plead not guilty, on the basis that his evidence may have been tainted, when it was revealed that police had neglected to swear on some affidavits, which were used to get search warrants. It is unknown whether the practice was involved in warrants used to get evidence against Mokbel. Mokbel’s barrister Peter Faris QC said if this had occurred in his client’s case it would justify his change of plea. The court were informed on Thursday that it is expected to hear from every officer who swore an affidavit to gather evidence against Mokbel in three drug operations. Prosecutor Peter Kidd said there were 20 officers who swore affidavits in the Mokbel cases and that statements would be gathered from all of them. The prosecution argued that even if some evidence is excluded, there would still be a strong case against Mokbel. The hearing continues this week.last_img read more

Deux somnifères bientôt retirés du marché

first_imgDeux somnifères bientôt retirés du marché Noctran et Mépronizine sont les deux somnifères qui seront retirés respectivement en octobre 2011 et janvier 2012 du marché français. L’Afssaps juge le risque d’effets indésirables ou de mésusage trop grave pour qu’ils continuent d’être commercialisés.La liste des médicaments retirés du marché s’allonge à nouveau. L’Afssaps vient en effet de décider d’arrêter la commercialisation de deux somnifères, le Noctran et le Mépronizine, qui seront respectivement retirés en octobre 2011 et janvier 2012. Commercialisés par le laboratoire Menarini et Sanofi-Aventis, ces deux médicaments étaient pourtant présents dans les pharmacies depuis près de vingt ans. Mais le danger “des risques de cumul d’effets indésirables graves ou de mésusage” a décidé l’Afssaps à intervenir.  Un mauvais usage pointé du doigtÀ lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?En réalité, une grande majorité du problème découle du fait que les patients qui sont sujets à des insomnies chroniques, prennent ce traitement de manière continue, alors que sa durée ne doit normalement pas excéder trois semaines. S’ensuivent des effets secondaires parmi lesquels : risque de chute, trouble de la mémoire, voire coma ou décès en cas de surdosage. L’Afssaps rappelle ainsi que “la prise d’hypnotiques de manière chronique n’est pas recommandée dans l’insomnie”, cite Europe1. En mars 2011, l’Agence sanitaire avait alors déjà émis l’avis que le Noctran devrait faire l’objet d’un retrait du marché.Anticiper l’arrêt du traitement dès maintenant Aujourd’hui, l’Afssaps recommande donc aux médecins d’anticiper le retrait de ces deux somnifères “afin de prévenir ou limiter, à l’arrêt du traitement, un effet rebond ou un syndrome de sevrage”. Dans le cadre de cette décision, l’Agence sanitaire va même plus loin puisqu’elle a mis en ligne sur son site un dossier à disposition contenant une mise au point et des consignes pour l’arrêt du traitement. Elle y invite notamment, durant cette période de transition, à se rendre plus régulièrement chez son médecin afin d’avoir un soutien psychologique et si nécessaire, de réévaluer l’insomnie.Le 26 juillet 2011 à 17:11 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Mack Trucks shows off the LR BEV its first batteryelectric garbage truck

first_img More From Roadshow 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Share your voice 1 Electric Cars Trucks Tags 14 Photoscenter_img The Urban eTruck is your all-electric truck of the future 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Comment This electric bad boy makes over 4,000 lb-ft of torque and can charge at 150 kW, not bad for a trash truck. Mack Trucks Garbage trucks are dirty. I mean, obviously they’re covered in trash juice and I don’t even want to think of what else, but that’s not what I’m talking about. See, they are powered by massive diesel engines and they put almost as much crud into the atmosphere as they take off of our streets.Mack Trucks thinks it has a better way to get trash trucks around the city and it involves electric power. The company unveiled a prototype battery-electric garbage truck on Wednesday at WasteExpo 2019 (aka arguably the convention I’d least want to attend based on name alone).The model it debuted is based on the LR truck that is already popular with municipalities all over the country; only it has a fairly wild battery-electric drivetrain under it that makes a respectable 496 horsepower and a mind-boggling 4,051 pound-feet of torque. It does this with two 130-kilowatt AC motors, a two-speed transmission and some beefy Mack 56,000-pound axles.The diesel engine on an ordinary trash truck doesn’t just make the wheels spin; it also has to run a ton of hydraulics and other systems. The LR BEV uses battery power to drive these systems, including hydraulics. The whole system is powered by four large lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide batteries that can be recharged at up to 150 kW and 200 amps.Mack left out the specifics on the LR BEV’s expected range, but it’s fair to assume that most garbage trucks don’t pile the miles on in the same way that a semi truck would. Also, the hundreds of stops and starts that a truck might see during a shift gives plenty of opportunity for brake regen, which should help range too.The first LR electric truck will do its real-world testing with the New York Department of Sanitation starting in 2020. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything betterlast_img read more

Polls Open As Texas Voters Decide Runoff Races

first_imgIlana Panich-Linsman/KUTAustin residents lined up to vote at the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services on Guadalupe Street on Tuesday.The Latest on primary runoff elections in Texas (all times local): Texas’ primary runoff will test whether the national Democratic Party’s establishment can overcome an insurgent wing more openly hostile to President Donald Trump.It will also set up November races where Democrats hope to flip three Republican-held U.S. House seats, a once unthinkable total in such a conservative state. And the party will learn its gubernatorial nominee, even if Republican Gov. Greg Abbott looks unbeatable.But one Democratic issue not expected to resonate is gun control, even though balloting comes four days after a shooting killed 10 people at Santa Fe High School near Houston.Top Texas Republicans have promised to discuss better fortifying schools — not gun control. And Democrats generally agree on more gun control so there hasn’t been much debate. Polls have opened across most of Texas for voters to decide on primary runoff races, including for party nominees for governor and Congress where no candidate won at least 50 percent of the votes cast during the March primary.The outcome of voting Tuesday will set up November races where Democrats hope to flip three Republican-held U.S. House seats, a once unthinkable total in such a conservative state.Voters, meanwhile, will choose between Democratic gubernatorial candidates Lupe Valdez, ex-Dallas County sheriff, and Houston businessman Andrew White, whose father, Mark, was governor from 1983 to 1987.The runoff elections come just four days after a gunman killed 10 people and wounded 13 others at Santa Fe High School near Houston. That attack sent shockwaves through Texas and the nation, but it’s unlikely to be a major factor in Tuesday’s balloting.___center_img Sharelast_img read more

The goal of these enhancements is to facilitate interoperability and integration with informatics workflow.Enhancements to the AquariusGATE DICOM Router mean it is now possible to automatically relay DICOM data to iNtuition Cloud, with encryption, and with automatic anonymization if required. That data can then be processed in interactive real-time, with any iNtuition tool delivered via a web browser from the cloud.
