Ganguly had given the money in phases between 2015 to 2016. Several years passed but Ganguly did not get the railway committee berth and failed to meet Ghosh or get in touch with him over the phone. On January 25, this year, Ganguly lodged a complaint at the Sarsuna police station against Ghosh and a few others. On Tuesday night, Ghosh was detained at his house at Sakuntala Park in Patuli. He was grilled throughout the night and was arrested early on Wednesday morning. Earlier, Ghosh had tried to set up an organisation by involving Tollywood film actors. At present, he holds the post of BJP trade union president in Bengal. He had reportedly admitted before the police that he took money from Ganguly. However, while he being taken to the Alipore Court, he claimed he was innocent.last_img read more

Soft drink consumption linked to risk of early death

admin No Comments

first_imgConsumption of soft drinks – whether sweetened with sugar or artificial sweeteners – may be associated with an increased risk of premature death, according to a study. The study, involving over 450,000 participants from 10 European countries, found that those who drank two or more glasses of soft drinks, including sugar-sweetened and artificially sweetened soft drinks, per day had a higher risk of mortality from all causes than those who consumed less than one glass per month. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainSpecific associations were also observed between artificially sweetened soft drinks and deaths from circulatory diseases and sugar-sweetened soft drinks with mortality resulting from digestive diseases, researchers said. The study, published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, surveyed participants on their food and drink consumption between 1992 to 2000 and followed up an average of 16 years later. “This study adds to the growing body of evidence that suggests possible negative associations between soft drinks and common causes of deaths such as heart disease and stroke,” said Jonathan Pearson-Stuttard from Imperial College London in the UK. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardWhile the study found an association between consumption of soft drinks and increased mortality the researchers stress that the link is a complex one and cannot be assumed to be causal. “We found that compared with those reporting low consumption, participants who reported high consumption of soft drinks were at greater risk of all-cause death in our study sample,” said Neil Murphy, one of the study’s lead authors, based at International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in France. “This doesn’t mean that soft drinks cause early death as in these types of studies there are other factors which may be behind the association we observed,” Murphy said. “For instance, high soft drink consumption may be a marker of overall unhealthy diet. Also, in our study, high soft drinks consumers had higher body mass Index (BMI) and were also more likely to be current tobacco smokers,” he said. “Additionally, and importantly, we generally saw similar associations in people smoking and non-smoking and among lean and obese participants which adds weight to the soft drink and mortality association not being strongly influenced by smoking habits and BMI,” Murphy said. “However, we cannot rule out the possibility that these factors were influencing our findings, hence why we cannot say the associations we observe are causal,” he said.last_img read more

ALBERTA FILM AND TV PRODUCTION NOW ON ELECTION PLATFORMS OF POLITICAL PARTIES

admin No Comments

first_imgAdvertisement After months of lobbying for attention from politicians and the public, the province’s beleaguered screen industries have made it onto the election platforms of four major political parties running in the April 16 election, with three suggesting they would follow other jurisdictions in making incentives more enticing for big-budget productions.The Alberta Party, United Conservative Party and Alberta Liberals all make reference to the industry in their official platforms, promising to change from a grant-based program to one based on tax credits. The NDP also released its platform, although it was considerably more vague, vowing to consult with industry stakeholders about changes.Damian Petti, spokesman for the Alberta Screen Industry Action Committee and president of the film workers union IATSE 212, said it’s a sign that politicians see the industry as a key player in economic diversification and recognize its system of incentives needs to be changed if Alberta is to compete with Ontario, British Columbia and, increasingly, Manitoba. This is the first time the industry has been mentioned in election platforms of the major political parties, he said.

Infrastructure bank could help build Indigenous projects chairwoman says

admin No Comments

first_imgOTTAWA – The chairwoman of a new federal agency that will help finance the construction of new highways, transit systems and electricity grids says it could also help fund multiple, smaller projects that are badly needed across Indigenous communities.The needs in some Indigenous communities are many: hydro, clean water, safe housing and broadband internet, to name a few.On First Nations reserves alone, the infrastructure gap — the amount that it would cost to replace and repair crumbling roads, homes, bridges and pipes — is estimated to be as much as $40 billion. The Liberals are turning to the private sector for help. Earlier this month, Indigenous Services Minister Jane Philpott challenged private companies to work with Indigenous communities to design, cost and transfer some of the financial risk of projects.Janice Fukakusa, chair of the Liberal’s new infrastructure bank, said the agency could help further by taking a concept or project on one reserve, or one community and rolling it out over a number of communities to build interest from institutional investors.“The ideas you have and what you’re rolling out has to be somewhat repeatable,” said Fukakusa, a former Royal Bank executive.“If you can find a way of leveraging the one thing into many things, then you’ll have a flow of projects, infrastructure that is constantly rolling out and then you’ll get the attention of institutional investors who are always looking for that flow.”The Toronto-based bank will take $35 billion in government funding and seek to leverage three or four times that much in private dollars to help finance infrastructure projects across the country. Eligible projects will have to generate revenue, meaning roads, bridges, water and transit systems will need user fees to defray costs.The agency will help make projects financially viable, either through funding construction, or helping investors project revenues so they can feel more comfortable putting in long-term capital, Fukakusa said in an interview Thursday.“The outcome will be more infrastructure for Canada for the future, because we can attract capital, long-term capital, that will feel the risk profile is acceptable (and) therefore invest more,” she said.“We definitely can’t support all the infrastructure we need through government of Canada balance sheets.”But before that can happen, Fukakusa and the new board of directors have to create an organization from scratch.The federal government unveiled Thursday the 10 people who will guide the new agency as it evaluates projects to see which ones it can help make reality. The list of directors for the Liberal government’s infrastructure bank includes lawyers, business people and Indigenous leaders.Fukakusa said board members have experience overseeing large projects and know what interests investors.The board’s first big project will be to help the Trudeau government decide who should be the agency’s first chief executive.An announcement is expected in the coming weeks, as the agency is supposed to be up and running by the end of the year.last_img read more

Growing number of deaths in Gulf of Aden sparks alarm from UN

admin No Comments

15 April 2011The United Nations refugee agency today voiced alarm at the growing number of deaths in the Gulf of Aden this year, noting that just this week 16 people have drowned and another five are missing – nearly all of them Somalis fleeing strife in their homeland – in two separate incidents. According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), 89 people are known to have drowned in January and February alone – compared to 15 during the whole of 2010. “We also note with the great concern the resurgence of violence and inhumane treatment by smugglers of the refugees, asylum-seekers, and migrants that they are transporting,” UNHCR spokesperson Andrej Mahecic told reporters in Geneva. “The deadly record for the first three months is a stark manifestation of this trend,” he added.The agency expressed concern after survivors from the latest incidents said that their cries for help while at sea to a nearby foreign naval ship and cargo vessel went unheeded.“This is disturbing,” Mr. Mahecic stated. “UNHCR appeals to all shipmasters in the Gulf of Aden to uphold the long-standing tradition of rescue at sea and helping vessels in distress.”On Wednesday a boat carrying 45 Somali refugees sank some two kilometres off the Yemeni shores near the town of Murais, more than 300 kilometres east of Aden, after it reportedly ran into heavy winds and rough seas. Fifteen of those on board are known to have drowned and five are missing, while 25 people managed to swim to shore. The vessel approached the Yemeni coast in the afternoon of 12 April but the smugglers, fearing interception by the Yemeni Coast Guard, refused to approach the shore, said Mr. Mahecic. “The passengers, who by then were dehydrated and hungry, began crying and shouting. Despite their appeals, the crew decided to stay out at sea til the morning. The tattered vessel ultimately sank in rough seas.”The survivors say that during the voyage they saw a cargo vessel and foreign naval ship. Although the naval ship approached their boat, it ignored their cries for help, he reported. In a separate incident, another boat that left from Somalia carrying 79 passengers – 77 Ethiopians and two Somalis – arrived off the coast of Yemen near Al-Kaida in Shabwa governorate on 13 April at around 6 a.m. Mr. Mahecic said that the smugglers dropped anchor in a deep area and forced the passengers into the sea. An Ethiopian man succumbed to the heavy waves and drowned. More than 6,500 Somalis and 18,800 Ethiopians have arrived in Yemen by boat so far this year, according to UNHCR. read more

Coroner told to drop cab rank rule and prioritise Jewish and Muslim

This legal victory will bring immense relief for grieving families to bury their loved ones with respect and dignityRabbi Asher Gratt “What on its face looks like a general policy which applies to everyone equally may in fact have an unequal impact on a minority.”In other words, to treat everyone in the same way is not necessarily to treat them equally. “Uniformity is not the same thing as equality,” they said. They ruled that the policy was unlawful and said she should introduce a new one. Religious groups welcomed the ruling.Rabbi Asher Gratt, speaking on behalf of the Adath Yisroel Burial Society, a charity which arranges burials for Orthodox Jewish people in north London, and which originally brought the case, said: “This legal victory will bring immense relief for grieving families to bury their loved ones with respect and dignity, preventing further unnecessary anguish at the darkest moment of their lives.”Marie van der Zyl, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said Ms Hassell must “consider her position”. “She has previously said that she does not believe that using her discretion to order cases, which she needs to do to uphold the religious freedom of the diverse communities she is meant to serve, is ‘fair’. “If she cannot carry out this basic function of her role, she must vacate her position.” A statement issued by Ms Hassell’s office said that she would implement a new policy following a consultation process.The Chief Coroner is also expected to issue new guidance reflecting the ruling.”In future, instead of considering no family for prioritisation, the Senior Coroner will consider every family for prioritisation. “In deciding the order of priority, she will take into account all relevant considerations, including the special needs of each individual family,” the statement said.  A coroner who operated a “cab rank” system for burials has been told by the High Court to drop her policy and release the bodies of Jews and Muslims first.Judges said the “equality protocol” policy introduced by Mary Hassell, the senior coroner for inner north London, was “discriminatory” and “incapable of rational justification”. The protocol said that “no death will be prioritised in any way over any other because of the religion of the deceased or family, either by the coroner’s officers or coroners.” This meant cases were assessed and bodies released for burial by the coroner’s office in order of when they were received, taking no account of any religious requirements. Ms Hassell introduced the policy at the end of October last year, prompting protests from Jewish and Muslim groups, whose beliefs require a funeral to take place as soon as possible after death.She told the court that she was concerned about the “negative impact that prioritisation of one sector of the community above others has had upon the families of those other deceased”. She also relied on guidance issued in 2014 by the Chief Coroner which said “the law does not allow the Coroner to give priority to any one person over another”.  But in a judgment released on Friday Lord Justice Singh and Mr Justice Whipple said her understanding of the law was “misguided” and the guidance was incorrect.

first_imgTHERE IS NO way of saying that people who don’t pay their water charges will have their flow stopped, the Tánaiste has said.Eamon Gilmore was responding to comments made this morning by John Tierney, the head of Irish Water.Tierney had told Newstalk Breakfast that customers who don’t or can’t pay would suffer disruption to their services.However, Gilmore said that he “didn’t see how that could be the case”.“The government has made it very clear that the charging regime will be on top of a household allowance. There has to be an allowance.“In any event, the question of what regime will be in place is not yet determined and it’s too early to be speculating.”Gilmore also reiterated his comments that the €50 million that has already been spent by Irish Water would have to prove to be money well spent.Read: Tánaiste: Irish Water must show €50m spending on consultants was necessaryRead: ‘A national scandal’: Irish Water facing questions from PAC over €50m consultancy feeslast_img read more

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, November 3, 2017 – Providenciales – While 95% of clinical services offered at both TCI Hospital medical centers have resumed following the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September, the restoration of other departments with temperature-sensitive equipment is dependent upon the stabilization of the hospital’s chiller systems.The chiller system at Cockburn Town Medical Centre on Grand Turk has now been fully repaired and is operating within the standards of the building.   As a result, the Operating Theatre can now accommodate elective surgeries, and most of the remaining routine services currently in emergency mode at the facility will resume shortly.   Appointments for elective surgeries and other procedures will be rescheduled.The chiller system for Cheshire Hall Medical Centre arrived at the health care facility on Thursday, 02 November 2017.   The installation and commissioning is projected to span three days.   Therefore, the full restoration of 100% cooling capacity is expected by next week. Overseas engineers have arrived in country to assist local teams in the installation process.   The industrial chiller system arrived on island inside a 40 foot container.A 60 ton crane was sourced to offload the system.   The chiller generates 370 tons of cubic cooling for the Cheshire Hall Medical Centre facility, which spans 11,500 square meters in size.   Cheshire Hall Medical Centre on Providenciales is the largest of the two medical facilities.   An additional chiller system has also been ordered.   However, the newly arrived system operates within the standards of the building and exclusively produces the cooling capacity required.As a precautionary measure and in accordance with strict patient safety and quality control processes, water quality tests related to culture, sensitivity and endotoxins are being conducted overseas to analyze the quality of the main water supply and ensure there is no bacterial contamination as a result of recent storms.The test results/report is due to arrive on 06 November 2017. In the meantime, Dialysis patients from Grand Turk are still being transferred to Providenciales for same day treatments at Cheshire Hall Medical Centre with assistance from the National Health Insurance Board.Laboratory tests require an incubation period to allow any organisms to grow along with additional testing.   Renal Dynamics, a United States company specializing in dialysis systems, conduct routine maintenance for TCI Hospital Hemodialysis machines, which include a review of water quality records to ensure the best and safest possible care for patients diagnosed with chronic kidney disease.Water is an essential component in the administration of in-patient haemodialysis, which uses up to 100 liters of water for each patient.   Each patient is dialyzed three time per week.During hemodialysis, a hemodialyzer, or artificial kidney, is used to filter fluids and wastes from a dialysis patient’s blood.  We continue to thank our patients for their understanding during our post hurricane recovery efforts.last_img read more

Intel Whiskey Lake and Amber Lake Revealed What You Need to Know

admin No Comments

first_imgIntel today released new versions of the CPUs that power most portable laptops. Unveiled at IFA 2018, the new Y- and U-series chips have higher clock speeds than their predecessors, and come with integrated Gigabit Wi-Fi and enhanced voice support.But before you get too excited, know that these new Amber Lake and Whiskey Lake chips use the same 14++ nanometer process as Coffee Lake CPUs, and join the crowded 8th Gen chip family. Yes, the wait for 10nm continues, so you should expect only minor performance and efficiency improvements this time around.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

Video editing in Adobe is projected to be almost three times faster, and 4K videos should take half the time to create. That all sounds impressive, but Intel didn’t provide comparisons to last year’s Kaby Lake CPUs. Based on the new CPU’s specs, we’re not expecting performance breakthroughs.The new Whiskey Lake-U CPUs contain up to 4 cores and 8 threads, the same as their Kaby Lake predecessors. The three low-power Amber Lake-Y CPU variants are all dual-core and have 4 threads.The performance improvements were enabled by increasing clock speeds. The i7-8565U has a base clock speed of 1.8 GHz and a max turbo frequency of 4.6 GHz, whereas last year’s Kaby Lake Core i7 CPU had a higher base clock speed of 1.9 GHz but topped out at 4.2 GHz. The new Core i5-8265U also bumps the maximum processor frequency up to 3.9 GHz from 3.6 GHz. The Core i3-8145U chip has a base clock speed of 2.1 GHz and maxes out at 3.9 GHz.The Y-series chips were similarly optimized with higher clock speeds. On the high-end, the Core i7-8500Y has a base frequency of 1.5 GHz and tops out at 4.2 GHz. The Core i5-8200Y has a max frequency of 3.9 GHz, while the low-end Core m3-8100Y reaches up to 3.4 GHz.What does this mean for battery life?We’re most interested to see what impact the new chips have on a device’s battery life. Intel claims laptops powered by the new chips can stay powered for up to 16 hours on a charge. That figure comes from the chip maker’s own benchmarks, so take it with a grain of salt. How does Whiskey Lake-U compare to Amber Lake-Y?The 15 watt U-series chips are designated for ultrabooks that offer general productivity, like the Dell XPS 13 or Lenovo X1 Carbon, while 5 watt Y-series chips are better served for thin-and-lightweight laptops with fanless designs, like the 12-inch MacBook or Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. In short, U-series chips offer better performance but draw more power, while Y-series chips enable greater portability but aren’t great for multitasking.  What features are new this year?The new processors come with integrated Gigabit Wi-Fi and improved voice support for assistants like Alexa and Cortana. While most modern laptops already support fast internet speeds through a dedicated Wi-Fi chip, Gigabit connectivity will now come baked into the processor.

first_imgIn other markets – like the EU, which receives around 60% of Brazilian fruit exports – the short-term objective is to increase volumes and profits.”The medium-term strategy is to try to increase the phytosanitary agreements with the U.S. and also with the Middle East, although in the Middle East the work is to develop the habit of consuming tropical fruits,” said Souza.Long-term, China is the key focus.”China is a big grower but during the winter they are not able to produce, so I think we have many opportunities to offer our fruit during the winter in China,” he said.”We are talking with China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan, among other countries, trying to accelerate phytosanitary processes. Ideally, we will have approved the first agreements of fresh fruit shipments to China at the end of 2018, beginning of 2019, which would be melons”.Melons are one of Brazil’s key fruit exports, along with mangos, limes, papayas, table grapes and avocados.At the moment the country sends fresh mangoes to South Korea and both mangoes and melons to Japan, but volumes remain low.Another fruit that they hope to strengthen is the Prata banana, which differs from the Cavendish in appearance and flavor.”We are presenting it in international markets. I was recently at an event in London and we had the opportunity to give it to the consumers to try and everyone has reacted positively,” he said.”We believe that it will be an innovation, definitely”, said Souza.Photo: Shutterstock.com Peruvian avocados: Greater early-season volumes ma … Chilean kiwifruit exports to Europe tumble, contin … September 20 , 2018 You might also be interested in This story is exclusive to Fresh Fruit Portal. If you would like to reproduce any elements of it on other sites or publications, please make a request to our editorial team at news@freshfruitportal.com State of the Market – Week 24, 2019 … Golden Bay Fruit creates “One of a Kind” show … Brazil has traditionally exported a very low portion of its total fruit production, but recently it has devised a plan to greatly increase its presence on the international stage.The country, which is the world’s third-largest fruit producer after China and India, began implementing a new strategy in mid-2017.”In the first half of this year our exports grew 16% in value and 11% in volume”, said Jorge de Souza, project manager of Brazilian fruit association Abrafrutas.Exports increased to US$333 million and 355,170 metric tons (MT) year-on-year, respectively, over the six-month period. Abrafrutas has been working with producers and regional associations to boost international trade, which has also been spurred on over recent years in part due to the government’s reduction in grower subsidies.The aim is to reach US$1 billion in exports in the 2019-20 season.”We are still trying to reach the first billion dollars of exports, we are close to 800 million, but we want to hit the billion-mark by 2020. However, I am sure we can achieve this by next year, following the current plan of action”, said Souza.Asia in the crosshairsThe current focus on taking advantage of commercial windows and strengthening Brazil’s presence in Asia and the Middle East.”For example, Mexico is a big lime producer, and we can adjust our season to start immediately after their season ends to take advantage of those windows in the market,” said Souza.last_img read more
