Rahul blames local leaders for Amethi defeat says will not abandon constituency

first_imgAmethi (UP): On his first visit here after losing the Lok Sabha seat, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Wednesday attributed his defeat to local leaders staying away from the people and assured he will not abandon the constituency, party functionaries said. “I will not leave Amethi. It is my home and family,” former state Youth Congress chief Nadeem Ashraf Jayasi quoted Gandhi as saying at a meeting. “The development of Amethi will not be hampered. I am the MP from Wayanad but my ties with Amethi are three decades old. I will fight for Amethi in Delhi,” Gandhi reportedly told party workers.

Before the 2019 defeat, Gandhi had represented Amethi since 1999. District Congress committee member Narendra Mishra said Gandhi appreciated the hard work by party workers. According to him, Gandhi said the workers did a lot during the campaign but local leaders remained away from the people, leading to his defeat.

They alleged that some party men worked with the BJP in the constituency. They also unanimously demanded that Gandhi should withdraw his resignation from the party president’s post. The Congress leader has announced his resignation while taking responsibility for the drubbing the party received in the Lok Sabha elections. In Amethi, Gandhi’s representative Chandrakant Dubey and Congress district president Yogendra Mishra have resigned. The meeting with party workers, including booth presidents from five assembly segments — Salon, Amethi, Gauriganj, Jagdishpur and Tiloi – lasted barely 50 minutes. Gandhi then left for two villages in Chhatoh block on the way to Lucknow, from where he flew back to Delhi. On reaching Amethi, the Congress leader first visited the Gauriganj house of his party’s Tiloi assembly in-charge Mata Prasad Vaish to offer condolences over the death of a relative on June 25. Later, he attended the review meeting with party office-bearers at Nirmala Devi Educational Institute in Gauriganj. Ahead of his visit, a poster appeared outside the party office demanding justice for the death of a man who was allegedly denied treatment by a hospital run by the Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Trust. In May, Irani had shared a video on Twitter that showed a man claiming that the hospital refused treatment to his uncle because the family held an Ayushman Bharat card. The hospital had rejected the charge.last_img read more

UN human rights chief voices concern over deportation of Roma from France

“I note the new policies of France towards the Roma, including the dismantling of their settlements and collective deportations to their country of origin,” Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in remarks to the 15th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.“This can only exacerbate the stigmatization of Roma and the extreme poverty in which they live. I urge European States, including France, to adopt policies enabling Roma people to overcome their marginalization,” Ms. Pillay said.Stressing that States were obligated to protect people from terrorism, the High Commissioner pointed out that anti-terrorism measures must never imperil human rights and due process of law.“In this context, I am troubled by reports concerning a program by the United States of targeted killings of suspected terrorists in circumstances that challenge international norms set to protect the right to life and the rule of law,” she added.“I am aware that a federal lawsuit has been filed in a US district court in Washington, DC, challenging the US Government’s authority to target and kill US citizens outside of war zones when they are suspected of involvement in terrorism.”On Mexico, Ms. Pillay said conditions of migrants from that country of those transiting through it warranted utmost vigilance. She highlighted the recent case of 72 migrants from Central and South America who were killed in Mexico, apparently by criminal gangs.“I recognize that the Government of Mexico has made strong efforts to curb the growing climate of violence and encourage it to conduct a thorough, transparent and independent investigation into these killings,” she said.She also spoke out against a trend of intimidating and threatening human rights defenders, including journalists and civil society activists, around the world.“Peaceful dissidents, human rights advocates, lawyers, and press representatives have been targeted and violently attacked in countries, including Iran, Iraq, and Somalia,” Ms. Pillay said.The High Commissioner said the curtailment of civil society’s scope of action and social activism with ad hoc laws or other restrictive measures in countries such as Bahrain, Belarus, China, Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Tunisia is disturbing.“In Israel draft laws have given civil society cause for concern. Peaceful activists have been injured and arrested for protesting the construction of the wall in occupied Palestinian territory. In the Gaza Strip, the de facto authorities shut down civil society organizations.”In Azerbaijan and Russia, little progress had been achieved to bring to justice the perpetrators of murders and attacks against defenders which have occurred during the past few years, she said, while in Guatemala, Mexico and Serbia, State institutions seemed unable to respond to attacks against defenders and activists.“I urge the Human Rights Council and the international community to support squarely and vocally human rights defenders. In this context, I would also like to bring to the attention of the Council the vital need to ensure the safety and protection of defenders and other witnesses who cooperate with UN-mandated fact-finding and investigative initiatives. Such protection must span the whole cycle of these missions’ activities and beyond.”In his remarks, the President of the Council Sihasak Phuangketkeow said the main challenge for the session would be to engage in the review of the Council without losing sight of its already heavy agenda. He urged members to forge unity of purpose and tackle all human rights issues even-handedly. 13 September 2010The United Nations human rights chief voiced concern today over France’s recent deportations of members of the Roma community and reports of a United States programme to kill people suspected of terrorism in circumstances she said were not consistent with international norms on the right to life and the rule of law. read more

Markets close higher ahead of Fed meeting slightly weak US retail sales

Markets close higher ahead of Fed meeting, slightly weak U.S. retail sales by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 13, 2013 8:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – North American markets closed higher Friday amid a spate of economic news from the United States and Canada as attention now focuses on next week’s meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve.The S&P/TSX composite index climbed 22.34 points to 12,723.40. The Canadian dollar was down 0.20 of a cent to 96.65 cents US.Americans bought more cars, furniture and electronics in August, but held back on most other retail purchases. The U.S. Commerce Department says spending at retail businesses rose 0.2 per cent last month, the smallest gain in four months.Analysts had been expecting a gain of 0.4 per cent in August but revised figures issued Friday showed July spending was stronger than first estimated. The department’s revised estimate for July was a gain of 0.4 per cent, up from 0.2 per cent“It came out pretty much in the wash. A tad to the negative side but not by very much,” said Bob Gorman, chief portfolio strategist at TD Waterhouse. “I would say the figures were marginally softer than anticipated but only marginally.”Gorman said the figures likely aren’t strong enough to change the Fed’s mind about starting to reduce its stimulus at the end of its two-day policy meeting next Wednesday.The Fed has been buying US$85 billion in bonds each month in an attempt to keep a lid on interest rates and to boost lending. Currently, most analysts expect the central bank to begin tapering its stimulus by US$10 billion.“Generally speaking, people are not making huge bets prior to the Fed announcement,” said Gorman.Trading was light as the TSX and Wall Street headed into the weekend and the start of the Jewish Yom Kippur holiday at sundown.The Dow Jones industrials jumped 75.42 points to 15,376.06, the Nasdaq was up 6.22 points at 3,722.18 and the S&P 500 was ahead 4.57 points at 1,687.99.Meanwhile, higher energy costs pushed U.S. wholesale prices up 0.3 per cent last month. Prices were up a modest 1.4 per cent over the past year, the lowest year-over-year gain since April.The Commerce Department reported that U.S. businesses restocked their shelves and warehouses in July at the fastest pace since January as sales rose, a hopeful sign for economic growth. The department said business stockpiles increased 0.4 per cent in July from June, after ticking up just 0.1 per cent the previous month.In other economic news, Statistics Canada reported that Canadians boosted their borrowing in the second quarter. The federal agency says the ratio of household credit market debt to disposable income hit a new high of 163.4 per cent in the second quarter, compared with 162.1 per cent in the first three months of 2013. On the other hand, Statistics Canada also said rising home prices pushed up household net worth in the quarter.The metals and mining sector was the leading decliner on the TSX, down 0.9 per cent. Shares in Sherritt International (TSX:S) fell 2.82 per cent, or 11 cents, to $3.79. December copper was down a penny at US$3.20 a pound.The gold sector was the biggest advancer, up 1.82 per cent despite lower bullion prices. On Thursday, the price of gold fell to its lowest level in a month, while on Friday it declined another $22 to US$1,308.60 an ounce.The October crude contract dipped 39 cents to US$108.21 a barrel.Gorman said the price of gold will likely continue to fall if tensions surrounding Syria continue to abate. People tend to buy gold in times of crisis as a safe haven.Earlier this week, the Syrian government agreed to a Russian proposal to hand over its chemical weapons to international control to avoid a U.S. military strike. Top U.S. and Russian diplomats are holding talks in Geneva to discuss the specifics as United Nations inspectors prepare to turn in their report this weekend.In corporate news, several Canadian pipeline companies struck a deal that could resolve a dispute over how key infrastructure is shared in the Greater Toronto Area.TransCanada (TSX:TRP) said it has reached a revised agreement with Enbridge (TSX:ENB), Gaz Metro and Union Gas for a revised framework for tolls on TransCanada’s mainline and the proposed Kings North project. TransCanada shares were down 0.24 per cent to $45.37 and Enbridge shares fell 0.14 per cent to $42.28. read more

Ivan Savvidis linked to arson attacks

first_imgDays after the owner of PAOK FC, Ivan Savvidis, was charged with disciplinary violations for entering the field carrying a gun, during a football game, the Russian-Greek tycoon’s name was implicated in a long-standing case of arson.On Monday, the sports television program ‘I Diki’ (‘The Trial’), broadcast on SKAI TV, revealed that Ivan Savvidi’s DIMERA company had issued an hotel invoice paying for the stay of individuals who were involved in cases of extorsion and arsonry.The first case involved the incident that took place on 30 August 2015, in the city of Xanthi, in Northeast Macedonia, when four individuals entered the parking lot the “La Challe” Hotel, with the purpose of torching the automobile of Razvan Lucescu, a football coach currently managing PAOK FC, who at the time was the coach of Xanthi FC. The arsonists mistakenly targeted the car of the coach’s cousin, Dragos Lucescu, as it was the only one with Romanian license plates.The other case, involves three members of the same ring, who set fire to an automobile belonging to sports agent Yannis Evangelopoulos’ wife. Two of Evangelopoulos’ clients, Yannis Tzandaris and Ergys Kace, were targeted by PAOK, the former opting to accept an offer from Olympiakos FC and the latter refusing to renew his contract with PAOK.Both cases were delt with by the Extortion department of the Thessaloniki Police, and were linked with a criminal organisation led by Grant Agatzanian, who is serving time in the Trikala prison. The Thessaloniki police had declared a PAOK FC employee, Spyros Milioridis, as a person of interest in this case. The former PAOK FC Board member, in charge of the team’s fan clubs, was recorded in phone conversations with another person of interest, Edgar Eritsyan. The latter’s hotel bills, during his stay in Athens at the time of the arson attack against Evangelopoulos, were the subject of the SKAI TV program on Monday.The program revealed that the tourist agent who made the reservations made a sworn testimony, that the initial invoice was initially paid by PAOK FC, but the invoice was subsequently canceled and another one was reissued, this time by DIMERA.“On the morning of 25 September, 2015, I received a telephone call for the owner of the agency […] in order to make a reservation for a room with three beds, which would be occupied by three individuals,” reads the agent’s testimony.“Because it was difficult for me to find such a room, I made a reservation at the “Athens Habitat” hotel. The reservation was made in the name Edgar Eritsyan and involved a one-night stay, and the occupants were to depart on 26 September, 2015, as they indeed did. On the morning of 15 October, 2015, I again received a telephone call from Mr. […] , in order to again make a reservation in the same name, Eritsyan.This time, however, the reservation was for two persons, and for a two-night stay. In other words, the occupants of the room were to depart on 15 October, 2015, as they did. Once again, I made the reservation for the clients at the Athens Habitat hotel, because its location suited them. The invoices for the aforementioned stay of our clients were initially issued for PAOK FC. However, they were canceled, for reasons which I cannot recall, and new invoices were issued for the same stay, in the name of the Dimera Company, which paid the bill.”This revelation links the Russian-Greek billionaire with an extortion ring targeted by the Greek police, raising many questions about the state of Football in Greece. However, despite the fact that the prosecutors are believed to have building a strong case, with the relevant file containing crucial evidence, no charges have been filed yet.Moreover, the file has not been sent to the competent Athletics Prosecutor, as is the usual process, and the whole case had not been made public, up until this week.

FHP struggling with low pay hiring new troopers

first_imgWatson told Fox 13 that the sheer amount of vacancies is making it tougher for troopers to respond to calls in a timely manner, forcing them to, at times, rely on other agencies to help.“DUIs, traffic homicide investigations, making sure the roadways here in Florida are the safest in the nation,” he said. “This is our target. This is our bread and butter.”Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. MIAMI (WSVN) – They are tasked with keeping our roadways safe. But amid a shortage of troopers on the road, the Florida Highway Patrol claims their low pay has kept them from hiring hundreds of new recruits.According to FOX 13, FHP said there are fewer state troopers than ever before.“Being a law enforcement officer is a very challenging career,” FHP trooper Ken Watson said. “You have to get into it for the right reasons.”FHP troopers reportedly make $34,000 a year as a starting salary, which is $10,000 less than other agencies. Since 2010, FHP says it’s lost almost 1,000 troopers to retirement or higher-paying agencies.“It’s very frustrating because you lose these good people and you want to keep them here and you want to see them promoted within our agency,” said Watson. “It’s very difficult to watch another candidate leave us to go somewhere else simply because of salary. We are going to do everything we can to compete with these agencies.”Troopers in the Sunshine State are the lowest-paid in the country, despite the Florida Legislature approving a 5-percent pay increase. That makes it harder to fill hundreds of open positions.There are 44 job openings for state troopers in Southwest Florida alone. Across the state, there are over 200 positions waiting to be filled. last_img read more

Bones of a baby T rex now for sale on eBay

first_img pic.twitter.com/FBPPlHWQOh— KU Natural History (@kunhm) April 9, 2019 Share your voice $2.95 million could get you a baby T. rex. Dave and Les Jacobs/Blend Images/Getty Images If you’ve got an extra $2.95 million lying around (and who doesn’t?), the remains of a baby Tyrannosaurus rex could be yours. An eBay listing for a young T. rex’s 15-foot body and 21-inch skull is drawing attention because, well, when was the last time you saw a dinosaur for sale online?According to the Lawrence Journal-World, the T. rex belongs to Alan Detrich and had been on exhibit at the University of Kansas Natural History Museum. The university pulled the bones from display after the listing went up.Detrich didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment, but in a tweet from April 10 said, “Today I will remove my 68 million year old 4 year old T-Rex Fossil that has been on display at the Museum for the past two years. …….Your Welcome.”Detrich reached out to J.R. Bissell, who runs Pirate Gold Coins, to actually list the bones on eBay. Bissell describes Pirate Gold Coins as a marketplace and “quasi-online museum” for artifacts. In a statement, Bissell said:”Whether or not you agree with the private sale of artifacts such as the baby T-Rex, the simple fact is this — many archaeological explorations require private funding. The individuals or groups that have the capital necessary to provide funding for archaeological exploration cannot sustain their efforts if they do not receive a return on their capital.  As such, a private market that allows investors to recoup costs and derive profit in exchange for the high degree of risk that is required to fund archaeological exploration is absolutely necessary.”On Twitter, the museum sought to clarify that it was not involved in the sale, saying “the specimen on exhibit-loan to us has been removed from exhibit and is being returned to the owner. We have asked that the owner remove any association with us from his sale.” Culture Tagscenter_img So far, no one has made an offer on the bones, although about 774 folks are watching the auction as of this writing. eBay didn’t respond to a request for comment. Detrich told the newspaper he and his brother discovered the bones in Montana in 2013. According to his Twitter account, this isn’t his first T. rex sale. Detrich tweeted that he sold another one he dubbed Samson for “millions of dollars.” In a letter dated April 12, the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology expressed ethical concerns about the sale. “Because vertebrate fossils are rare, most of them contribute uniquely to our knowledge of the history of life. Each one that is lost from the public trust, is part of that already fragmentary history that we will never collectively recover,” the letter said. Originally published April 17, 8:14 a.m. PT.Update, May 2: Adds comment from Pirate Gold Coins. 0 Post a commentlast_img read more

Environmental Groups Sue EPA Over Latest Texas Haze Rule

first_img Share X David Fulmer via FlickrA view from the South Rim trail at Big Bend National Park on a hazy day.Environmental groups say the Environmental Protection Agency is taking a “do-nothing” approach to dealing with pollution in Texas.On Friday, a coalition of groups sued the agency over the latest version of a rule meant to reduce haze in scenic parts of Texas and the U.S., saying it doesn’t go far enough.There is consensus on one point: that haze in national parks is a problem. The EPA acknowledged that when it finalized its new haze cleanup plan in October, saying that average visibility in many national parks and wilderness areas is “about one-half to two-thirds of the visual range that would exist without anthropogenic air pollution.”Stephanie Kodish is an attorney with the National Parks Conservation Association, which worries about pollution in the Big Bend and Guadalupe Mountains parks coming from power plants.“Not only do these sources compromise visibility, but they also affect visitor health, and they’re the same sources that have an impact on our climate,” Kodish said. Her group and others argue the Obama Administration’s approach to cleaning up haze would’ve had better results. The new plan gives Texas power plants alternatives to installing costly emissions controls, one of them being an emissions trading program within the state.The EPA said its policy is to not comment on pending litigation, but in deciding on the new rule, the agency had considered arguments from Texas power companies that the old version would’ve been unnecessarily costly, and that it was an example of federal overreach. The groups suing are also formally petitioning the EPA to reconsider the new rule. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /01:06last_img read more

Toyota to Show Off Autonomous Car Gains at CES

first_imgJanuary 5, 2018 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Toyota Research Institute on Thursday unveiled its next-generation automated driving research vehicle, dubbed Platform 3.0.Built on a Lexus LS 600hL, “Platform 3.0 has a sensor-rich package that makes it one of the most perceptive automated driving test cars on the road,” TRI wrote in a news release. TRI plans to show off this new research vehicle at CES in Las Vegas next week.The company, formed in 2015 to focus on the research and development of artificial intelligence robotics, says Platform 3.0’s LIDAR system, which previously only tracked the forward direction, now covers the vehicle’s complete 360-degree perimeter. The four high-resolution LIDAR scanning heads can “precisely detect objects in the environment including notoriously difficult-to-see dark objects,” TRI wrote. The vehicle also has shorter-range LIDAR sensors on all four sides that can “detect low-level and smaller objects near the car like children and debris in the roadway.”TRI is also touting the sleek design of its vehicle. All the sensors and cameras are small and part of the vehicle’s design, unlike other autonomous test vehicles, which sometimes have a large “spinning bucket” LIDAR sensor mounted on the roof and other equipment bolted on.Production of Platform 3.0 vehicles will kick off this spring at Toyota Motor North America’s Prototype Development Center in York Township, Mich. The vehicles will be produced in from stock Lexus LS models.”Production volume is intentionally low to allow for continued flexibility given the quickness with which TRI has progressed in updating its test platform,” the company wrote. “There have been three major updates, including two new generation test models, in less than a year, and TRI anticipates continued rapid developments.”Meanwhile, TRI isn’t the only company planning to show off automated driving technologies at CES. Lyft, in partnership with autonomous driving technology company Aptiv (formerly known as Delphi Automotive), plans to offer rides in self-driving cabs during the annual tech convention.
