  • Uttarakhand BJP MLA suspended over indiscipline

    first_imgDehradun: The ruling BJP in Uttarakhand has suspended Khanpur MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion from the party for three months on charges of indiscipline, a party spokesman said on Sunday. Champion’s suspension on Saturday night came after a preliminary report prepared by the state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Disciplinary Committee found him guilty of gross indiscipline. It also took cognizance of the legislator’s alleged threats to a journalist. State BJP President Ajay Bhatt later suspended Champion. Recently, a video had gone viral in which Champion appeared to be threatening an electronic media journalist. He was also in the news for publicly making fun of BJP MLA from Jhabreda Deshraj Karnawal. Champion, who wanted a ticket for his wife for the Lok Sabha polls from Haridwar, had described then sitting MP from the seat and now Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank as a “migratory bird”. He was among the nine Congress MLAs who had rebelled against Harish Rawat and crossed over to the BJP in 2016. Later, all the nine MLAs were disqualified by the Speaker.last_img read more

  • Catastrophically injured van attack survivor 92 thankful to be alive

    first_imgTORONTO — Aleksandra Kozhevnikova doesn’t remember being hit by the van that careened through north Toronto and mowed down pedestrians on a busy thoroughfare last April.Nor does the 92-year-old woman, one of the 16 injured who survived, want to talk about the attack that killed 10 people and robbed her of the independence she so valued, her son, Vadym Kozhevnikov, said.Before the incident, the retired grandmother lived alone, led an active life and largely took care of herself, Kozhevnikov said in a recent interview. A year later, she requires constant care from a personal support worker and can’t walk more than a few steps without assistance or switching to a wheelchair, he said.And though she’s been told what happened, Kozhevnikova avoids any reminders, her son said. “She is very, very sensitive now, she can start crying . . . she worries about everything,” he said.His mother even cast aside a prized red walker she got a year or two before the attack and often took with her to run errands, he said, because it stirred up too many emotions.“It was very nice, everybody asked, ‘Wow where did you get it?’ . . . This one was very fancy,” he said. But in the wake of the crash, “she put it into (the) garbage,” he said.The brazen daytime attack that played out on Yonge Street on April 23, 2018, sparked a wave of fear and grief in Toronto and beyond, with some saying the city would bear permanent scars.Police allege Alek Minassian deliberately drove a rental van onto the crowded sidewalk. The 26-year-old is charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 16 counts of attempted murder, allegations he will face in a trial scheduled to begin next February. A year later, the more than $4 million raised in support of the victims and their families have been disbursed, and consultations are underway to build permanent memorials.While some wish to avoid memories of the incident, families and communities across the city are marking the grim anniversary with events dedicated to those they lost.A service will be held at a Toronto church to honour Munir Najjar, an 85-year-old Jordanian citizen who was visiting his children in Toronto with his wife when he was killed in the attack, said Harry Malawi, a family friend and president of the Jordanian Canadian Society.Najjar’s wife has been in and out of the city in the last year and their son, a musician with the Canadian Arabic Orchestra, has returned to work, Malawi said. “They’re trying to live their life, they’re trying to move forward,” he said.Marking the milestone is key to ensuring those who lost their lives are not forgotten, he said. “It may bring, on one hand, bad memories but it also brings healing thoughts,” he said.A ceremony is also planned at the Buddhist temple that Renuka Amarasingha, another victim of the crash, attended weekly, said Rev. Ahangama Rathanasiri, chief monk at the Mahavihara Buddhist Meditation Centre.Amarasingha, 45, was an active member of Toronto’s Sri Lankan community and a single mother. Her son Diyon, now eight, was taken in by family friends and continues to attend Sunday school at the temple, Rathanasiri said.Manjula Wickramaratne, a family friend who takes Diyon to the temple each week, said the boy is doing well and has reconnected with his father. The father, who lives in Montreal, is in the process of working out a custody arrangement, she said.  Thousands of people donated to an online fundraiser for the child, for a total of nearly $360,000. A note on the fundraiser page dated a few weeks after the attack said the organizers were working through the “legal formalities” of setting up a trust for Diyon.The last year has involved legal battles for several of those hurt or grieving as a result of the attack.Three people who were injured — Amaresh Tesfamariam, Catherine Riddell and Amir Kiumarsi — have filed lawsuits against Minassian, as has the family of Anne Marie D’Amico, who was killed in the crash.The lawsuits, which have not been tested in court, are seeking millions of dollars from Minassian and Ryder Truck Rental Canada, alleging the devastating injuries and deaths on that day were due to an intentional act by Minassian and negligence on his and the rental company’s part.The lawyer representing the D’Amico family has said that any money his clients may be awarded would be donated to the Anne Marie D’Amico Foundation, which supports women who are victims of violence.Kozhevnikova, meanwhile, was locked in a dispute with her insurance company, which was withholding payments because it contested the gravity of her injuries, her lawyer said.The matter seemed poised for resolution recently after medical experts hired by the company deemed her to be “catastrophically” injured, Michael Taylor said. Kozhevnikova, who suffered neck and spinal injuries, is “as catastrophic as catastrophic can ever get,” Taylor said in a recent interview.The medical designation should raise her insurance coverage limit to $1 million from $65,000, he said. Though Kozhevnikova does not fully grasp the issue, the outcome is a “huge relief,” her lawyer said.Overall, Kozhevnikova has remained positive, though her moods and her ability to communicate can be erratic, he said.“She went through a lot of things in her life. She went through the war as a teen, she went through immigration — that wasn’t easy also — she survived the van attack,” Taylor said. “She’s just thankful of being alive.”— With files from Liam CaseyPaola Loriggio, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

  • AFN hit with surprise 17 million cut

    first_imgAPTN National News OTTAWA–The Harper government has hit the Assembly of First Nations with an about $1.7 million cut in a surprise move that is also expected to impact 46 other First Nation organizations.The cut, which applies to this current fiscal year, was announced in a June 3 letter from Aboriginal Affairs deputy minister Michael Wernick to the AFN. A similar form letter was also sent to other First Nations organizations.“It is going to seriously impact our capacity,” said a senior official with the AFN. “I am not sure how we are going to handle this.”The funding cut targets money set aside by the department for so-called “discretionary project funds” made available for awarding on a “competitive basis,” according to Wernick’s letter, obtained by APTN National News. The department is slashing the pot of money by 30 per cent for all organizations.The cuts will impact policy and analysis work around housing, infrastructure, water, treaties, emergency management, Indian residential schools, education and economic development. It will also impact salaries and travel expenses for the AFN’s executive committee along with the organization’s two annual meetings.According to Wernick’s letter, the department will now narrow the criteria for projects that get funding.“Proposals for project funding will be assessed against a common set of criteria by a national selection committee that will be looking for proposals that will yield concrete results and move shared priorities forward,” wrote Wernick. “This will help to ensure that available resources are focussed on projects that have a real and positive impact on the Aboriginal peoples they are intended to benefit.”Ottawa had already moved to slash spending for First Nations organizations. This past September Aboriginal Affairs announced it was changing its formula for “Aboriginal Representative Organizations” and capping core funding for regional organizations at $500,000.The AFN took a $500,000 hit to its core funding at the time.The department said at the time it would be reducing funds for proposal-based projects.”Wernick said in his latest letter that the funding cuts would not impact the delivery programs and services or for claims and self-government.The AFN official said the full impact of the cut remains unclear, but it’s understood more reductions are expected next year.“We are working hard to get details now and we are working hard to get all the information,” said the official.news@aptn.calast_img read more

  • Mozambique asks for UN food assistance in wake of deadly cyclone

    The Mozambican Government has asked the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to provide emergency assistance for one month to 60,000 people in the north of the country who are still suffering from the impact made by Cyclone Jokwe earlier this month. WFP will start distributing food assistance to cyclone-affected communities early next week, drawing on existing stocks that had been earmarked for other operations, the agency said in a press release issued yesterday in Maputo, the Mozambican capital. About $550,000 is now needed to quickly replenish those stocks. Along with national authorities, other UN agencies and aid organizations, WFP is conducting a rapid-needs assessment in the province of Nampula, the area hit hardest by the cyclone. At least eight people were killed as a result of Jokwe, which struck the Mozambican coast on 8 March with winds of up to 200 kilometres per hour, leaving tens of thousands of people homeless. Numerous power lines were also knocked down, cutting off electricity and water supplies to several towns and villages, while heavy rains led to some flooding. Both WFP and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have already mobilized staff to the affected areas in northern and central Mozambique. 18 March 2008The Mozambican Government has asked the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to provide emergency assistance for one month to 60,000 people in the north of the country who are still suffering from the impact made by Cyclone Jokwe earlier this month. read more

  • Telus files complaint with BC securities regulator over New York hedge fund

    Telus files complaint with B.C. securities regulator over New York hedge fund by LuAnn LaSalle, The Canadian Press Posted May 2, 2012 5:05 pm MDT Telus Corp. (TSX:T) has filed a complaint with the B.C. securities regulator about a New York hedge fund’s opposition to the telecom company’s plan to have one class of common shares.Telus has asked the British Columbia Securities Commission to require Mason Capital Management to issue a press release to provide more information on why it acquired a large voting position in the telecom company.“Telus shareholders have the right to know about Mason’s holdings and intentions,” Telus lawyer Robert Yalden said in a letter to the regulator.The Vancouver telecom company also wants Mason to publicly say when it purchased or sold common and non-voting shares since Telus announced in late February that it planned to have only common shares.“Mason must also disclose that, as a result of its trading strategy, its interests are different from those of other holders of common shares,” said the letter, dated April 30.“Telus shareholders will only be able to make a reasoned judgment about Mason’s opposition to the proposal if they are provided with this information.”Shareholders will vote on the proposal to create a single class of common shares at the company’s annual meeting on May 9 in Edmonton. Telus said a single class will provide better liquidity and benefit all shareholders.“We would like to see Mason put forward more complete information about their holdings and intentions,” Telus spokesman Shawn Hall said Wednesday. “We are simply seeking clarity from the commission in this regard.”Mason Capital Management said Wednesday that it has made its position clear and questioned why Telus was turning to the B.C. securities regulator.“We question Telus’ motivations in submitting a complaint to regulators shortly before its proposal is to be voted upon and making its complaint public before the regulators have had the opportunity to even consider or respond,” Mason said in a statement.Mason said it intends to vote against the Telus proposal to convert all of its non-voting shares into noting shares on a one-to-one basis.“Mason believes Telus’ proposal does not reflect the superior value of the voting shares for which shareholders have historically paid a premium.”Mason has urged Telus shareholders to vote against the plan and has also said one class of common shares would hurt liquidity and reduce the allowed level of foreign investment.Telus said Mason stands to profit by increasing the spread between the common shares and the non-voting shares and has created a credible threat that the proposal may be defeated, which has caused the spread to widen.Telus has said Mason owns 33 million voting shares, or 19 per cent, and shorted almost the same amount in non-voting shares.“All Mason needs to do is create enough uncertainty in the market to cause the spread to widen and then close out some or all of its short position to lock in its profits.”A short-seller profits when the price of a stock falls.Telus has said share gains could fall if shareholders vote against creating a single class of common shares.Telus chief financial officer Robert McFarlane has said that as of last week the company’s common shares were up 5.5 per cent and its non-voting shares up 7.2 per cent since the plan was announced in late February.

  • Buckeyes chop down Penn State in Big Ten hockey play

    Junior forward Matt Johnson (26) fights for the puck during a game against Penn State Jan. 31 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 5-1.Credit: Alexis Hill / Lantern photographerOhio State men’s hockey coach Steve Rohlik had a simple message for his team heading into its matchup with Penn State.“I told our guys, ‘Chop down a tree today,’” Rohlik said after Saturday’s game. Though his use of such a metaphor could come off as confusing to some, his team must have gotten the message.The Buckeyes (14-9-1, 4-5-1-0) made efficient work of cutting down the Nittany Lions (4-17-1, 0-8-0-0), sweeping them in a weekend at the Schottenstein Center.OSU was met with some resistance to begin Saturday’s encounter, as the Nittany Lions held a two-goal advantage heading into the second period.But then the Buckeyes went to work, chopping away at the deficit just as Rohlik intended.Junior forwards Tanner Fritz and Ryan Dzingel scored power play goals in the second period before sophomore forward Anthony Greco posted a goal of his own for the go-ahead late in the period.Two more goals in the third put an exclamation point on the comeback win, one that showed Rohlik what his team can do.“I saw a hockey team grow up today. I’m proud of these guys,” Rohlik said. “They never panicked. They got in the locker room, talked about what we needed to do and got back to the basics.”Freshman goalie Christian Frey started both games on the weekend, making a career-high 46 saves Friday night as OSU dominated the Nittany Lions in a 5-1 win.Frey, who was added to the OSU roster in December because of injuries and the departure of sophomore Collin Olson for the USHL, has won five of his six starts and said he is enjoying his switch to college hockey.“It’s weird coming to a new team halfway through the year,” Frey said after Friday’s win. “But the guys have been great to me and I feel like it’s been a smooth transition.”Dzingel and fellow junior forward Max McCormick led the way with two goals each as the Buckeyes had another three goal second period that put the game beyond doubt.McCormick said the Buckeyes know what they are capable of and just want to live up to their own expectations.“We know we have (potential) in our locker room,” McCormick said. “It’s just a matter of if we execute the things that (our) coaches are asking us to do.”Saturday’s game was a special day for the OSU men’s hockey program as it celebrated its 50th anniversary. Three members of the inaugural team participated in a ceremonial puck drop, while the All-Buckeye Team was recognized during the first intermission.Rohlik was quick to recognize how important the history of the program is to the current team.“Those (alumni) are the reason we’re here, they put the bricks in the wall,” Rohlik said. “We’re just carrying the torch for this program.”Whether it’s carrying the torch or chopping down trees, this OSU team is doing it all with confidence.The Buckeyes are back on the road next weekend to face Michigan State. Friday’s game is set for 6:30 p.m. and Saturday’s game is set for 4 p.m. read more

  • La lèpre est toujours présente dans le monde

    first_imgLa lèpre est toujours présente dans le mondeBien que le nombre de cas de lèpre ne cesse de diminuer depuis un peu plus de dix ans, la maladie est toujours présente dans le monde et nécessite toujours d’être considérée.En 2009, le nombre de cas de lèpre recensés par l’Organisation mondiale de la santé s’est porté à 212.000. Ainsi, chaque jour, près de 600 personnes seraient diagnostiquées comme victimes de la lèpre alors que la maladie est trop souvent considérée comme éradiquée. Il est vrai que le nombre de cas recensés depuis l’an 2000 a fortement diminué mais la lèpre nécessite toujours une importante mobilisation. Ainsi, dimanche 30 janvier aura lieu la 58e Journée mondiale des lépreux.La maladie a largement perdu du terrain depuis de nombreuses années, alors qu’en 2006, seuls 16 pays sur les 192 membres de l’OMS ont enregistré plus de 1.000 nouveaux cas. La lèpre est une vieille maladie qui a été éradiquée dans 98 pays mais qui continuent à en toucher d’autres. Elle se transmet par gouttelettes (buccale ou nasale) qui laissent le bacille mycobacterium leprae entrer dans l’organisme. Les principales conséquences d’une lèpre non soignée sont des lésions de la peau, des nerfs, ou encore des yeux. Aujourd’hui, la lèpre peut être soignée grâce à une combinaison de trois antibiotiques.Le 28 janvier 2011 à 15:17 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

  • Caring for Alaskas seniors during tense budget talks

    first_imgGov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget proposes eliminating more than a third of the state’s funding for the program. To achieve that, some hospitals and nursing homes could be paid less to provide skilled labor.But for one nursing home in Juneau, it’s still business as usual for the staff and the people they care for.Once a week, Wildflower Court has a jam session led by a volunteer. One of the residents picks up an acoustic guitar to join in.Lala Toetuu is watching from the sidelines. She’s an activities and nursing aide at Wildflower Court, where everyone loves calling her by her first name.“They’re like, Lala? Just La-la-la?” Toetuu said with a laugh. “So they’ll be singing my name as I walk in the hall. I think even my name brings out a more fun side to things.”During a rendition of an old Scottish folk song called “My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean,” Toetuu agrees to play a game. She had to do a squat every time the residents sing a lyric starting with the letter “b.”They seem to enjoy watching her get a workout.This is just one of the many hats Toetuu wears during her shift at Wildflower Court. She’s part party captain — making sure the residents are active and having a good time — and part caregiver.Toetuu said she enjoys doing both roles.“What I really love about it is I’m able to see two different sides of the residents,” Toetuu said. “I’m able to be with them when we’re having jam sessions and playing basketball … and I’m also able to see them on this side where I’m able to care for them in a different way.”Such as helping seniors with tasks like eating, dressing and bathing. She said she likes making residents feel confident, so they can present the best version of themselves.Up to 90% of the people who live at Wildflower Court are Medicaid recipients.Mickey Lovell is one of them. She moved to Alaska from Oregon in 1953 after her dad booked a one-way ticket north, because he didn’t like the boy she was dating.“If I’d had the money, I’d gone right back home,” Lovell said. “But I didn’t have the money.”So Lovell settled down in Alaska. She raised her kids here. In her 20s, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. But she wasn’t able to get regular insurance until she was much older because of her pre-existing condition.“Not many people want to get to be 65. But I did,” Lovell said.At 65, she became eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare pays for recovery after an injury. But it’s Medicaid that’s paid for Lovell’s more-than-decade-long stay at Wildflower Court.However, a battle is brewing between the state and providers over how much Medicaid should cost. Dunleavy’s budget proposal suggests cutting state payments for skilled nursing by 5%.That’s what Toetuu, and 50 other staff, does at the nursing home.Ruth Johnson, who oversees operations, said it’s created an air of uncertainty.“You know, it would probably mean we’d have to eliminate some positions,” Johnson said. “That we’d have fewer caregivers on the floor.”Wildflower Court is a non-profit resident long-term-care facility in Juneau. (Photo by Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska)Right now, each resident at Wildflower Court gets about three hours of individual care broken up throughout the day. Johnson isn’t sure how that would change if the cuts are applied to Medicaid.But she said the nursing home is sometimes only operating at a 5% profit margin. So even if a 5% cut seems small, it would make it difficult for Wildflower Court.Still, Johnson is quick to point out she’s remaining optimistic the Medicaid cuts won’t be as deep as the governor’s initial proposal.She’s trying to look at it as the start of a much larger conversation.“Elder care is expensive to deliver in Alaska,” Johnson said. “We have a completely different economy of scale than the Lower 48.”Johnson said that’s because the state is big and spread out. A typical nursing home size is 34 beds — compared to the national average of more than 100.So the issue here is a smaller pool of people responsible for a big expense.The Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association says scaling back the state’s Medicaid payments isn’t the answer. But finding places to cut back within the program will take more time and dialogue than what can be achieved in a single legislative session.In the meantime, Johnson is trying not to worry her Wildflower Court staff and residents. There’s still singing, laughter and community in the halls.This week, Johnson lost a game of cribbage to 86-year-old Mickey Lovell. Lala Toetuu says she enjoys showing up to work at Wildflower Court and spending time with residents. She calls them friends. (Photo by Elizabeth Jenkins/Alaska’s Energy Desk)The Alaska Legislature has been looking at ways to scale back how much the state spends on Medicaid. It’s one of the state’s biggest expenses.last_img read more

  • The Most NonExistent Video Game at E3 2018

    first_img E3 is the place where video game dreams can come true. It’s the event where after years of waiting fans can see a beloved franchise return. Or a brand new game can make a dazzling debut in a terrific trailer.But for as exciting as E3 can be because of what we see, it can also cause heartbreak over what we don’t see. After the excitement of getting fresh looks at games like Cyberpunk 2077, Death Stranding, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there were some other games we were jazzed to see but just… didn’t. For whatever reasons, these are the most non-existent vaporware video games at E3 2018.Starfield/The Elder Scrolls 6We’re pumped that Todd Howard and his team at Bethesda are working on big new games beyond this November’s multiplayer Fallout 76. But details on Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 are so sparse they might as well not even be there. It’s safe to assume that Starfield will be a Bethesda-style open-world RPG in space, and that the sixth Elder Scrolls game will resemble the other five, but making assumptions is really all we can do right now.Star Wars Jedi: Fallen OrderEA knows it messed up bad with how it has handled the Star Wars license so far. The first Battlefront was barely a game. Battlefront II was largely a casino. Visceral’s Star Wars project seems to have been shut down for being too single-player driven. And Galaxy of Heroes just chugs along as a mobile free-to-play money machine. To give us hope, EA announced that the Titanfall developers at Respawn are making a game about the Jedi being hunted down after Episode III. But beyond that premise, the name Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and a release date for next December, that’s all we know.Halo InfiniteForget Halo 6, the next Halo game from 343 goes all the way to infinity. Microsoft opened its 2018 E3 press conference with a look at the lush, expansive natural sci-fi world Master Chief seems to have found himself in. We expected they would return to it at the end of the show with a full explanation of what the game even is. But they didn’t.Microsoft’s New StudiosTo beef up its currently lackluster first-party efforts, Microsoft announced that it purchased four talented teams to make games exclusively for Xbox/PC: Ninja Theory, Playground Games, Undead Labs, and Compulsion Games. Additionally, they have created a whole new studio called The Initiative. But beyond the projects these developers announced they were already making like Forza Horizon 4 and We Happy Few, don’t expect to learn anything else about what Microsoft has in store for these teams until the next generation.2019/Third-Party Nintendo Switch GamesWe’re really really really excited to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Nintendo Switch. But if the mascot fighter isn’t really your jam, and Pokemon Let’s Go isn’t either, then the rest of 2018 maybe isn’t looking quite as stacked for the console/handheld hybrid compared to 2017. Teams are surely hard at work for 2019 Switch games, but we would have liked to see them at E3 2018.Square Enix’s Marvel ProjectLast year Square Enix announced it was partnering with Marvel for an Avengers game. And we haven’t learned anything else since! This is apparently part of Marvel’s big push for quality games. And Square Enix if nothing else can provide production value. Plus we’re right between the releases of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. So this E3 would’ve been the perfect Avengers coming out party. But it was a no-show.Rocksteady’s GameSpeaking superheroes, Rocksteady has already done all the miracles it can with the Batman franchise thanks to the Arkham games. So we were excited to maybe see them reveal a Superman or Justice League game at E3. Unfortunately, the team has now said that their new project just isn’t ready for primetime yet.Mortal Kombat 11NetherRealm Studios puts out games like clockwork ever since being acquired by WB. The pattern dictated that this would be the year to reveal the next Mortal Kombat for release next spring. But it didn’t happen. Hopefully this just means the conclusion to this modern MK Trilogy is getting the extra attention to deserves to truly trump the excellent Injustice II.Sony Release DatesSony centered its bizarre press event around four key PlayStation games: The Last of Us Part II, Spider-Man, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding. We know Spider-Man is coming in September. But besides that, these lengthy gameplay demos didn’t give us any concrete idea of when these games, some of which we’ve been seeing for years, will actually grace our PlayStation 4s, or maybe PlayStation 5s at this point.Buy it now!Nintendo SwitchProtect Your Nintendo Switch With These Awesome CasesLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

The stories they choose to tell, the images they conceive, the lines they draw and embellish with colours, will inextricably draw you into their web. Enjoying a work of art is a highly individualistic experience. If it makes you turn around just so you can see it once more, then the artist has succeeded in his work. For if a mere look can transport you away from the humdrum of life, then it is, in my view, a great piece of art”, said Durgesh Shankar. “Rajasthan has perhaps experienced these influences more than others, and has subsumed them in every aspect of their lives, including art.  In this exhibition, through the 10 artists of diverse genre, who are acknowledged as masters in their fields, and who are working quietly in remote corners of the State, churning out masterpieces, I wish to introduce their work to the audience in Delhi, so that people can admire and enjoy the fine brush-work, the magic of the natural colors and the vivid portrayal of themes known to us since childhood but again presented to us on a modern palette,” he added.last_img read more

  • Story of a mother daughter

    first_imgMother-daughter relationships can be complex, but also filled with compassion and love. They often seem far away from each other than they really are but the care remains. Same goes with Rajni Sahni who loves her daughter with all her life. It was during her labour when she was faced with some major complications in her pregnancy. And Rajni was bed-ridden for almost 6-7 months due to tremendous pain but she found the perfect way to vent out all the pain and frustration – she revived her passion for painting. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIn an exhibition titled, ‘Mimesis’ – which literally means representation of self, Rajni has tried to bring out her pain and feelings during those hard times of pregnancy onto a canvas. Curated by Jitendra Padam Jain, this exhibition of prints and paintings will go on till July 24 at the Shridharani Art Gallery.”The mother-daughter relationship is the most powerful bond in the world, for better or for worse. It sets the stage for all other relationships,” say experts. And Jennie Hannan, executive general manager of services at counselling provider Anglicare WA, agrees. “How a woman sees herself, how she is in her adult relationships with partners, and how she mothers her own children, is profoundly influenced by her relationship with her own mother,” she says. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”But while most five-year-old girls love their mothers with an unshakeable conviction, it’s often a different story by the time they reach adolescence. The once-adored woman who rarely put a foot wrong is suddenly always doing embarrassing things,” Jennie added.Rajni incorporates natural elements to echo a feminine experience. She welcomed her daughter in the new world, who is also her inspiration of creating the artwork displayed at ‘Mimesis’. “We live on the most beautiful planet, earth which has very clean and attractive nature full of greenery. Nature is our best friend which provides us all the resources to live here. It gives us water to drink, pure air to breathe, food to eat, land to stay, animals, plants for our other uses etc. for our betterment. We should fully enjoy the nature without disturbing its ecological balance, and I did, when I conceived my daughter,” said the artist, who takes her inspiration from Rabindra Nath Tagore education hub, Santiniketan.last_img read more

  • Should you get a Cat6 or Cat7 Ethernet cable for your network

    first_imgShould you get a Cat6 or Cat7 Ethernet cable for your network? by Martin Brinkmann on January 30, 2018 in Hardware – Last Update: January 30, 2018 – 30 commentsWhen you search on Amazon, Newegg or any other shopping site for ethernet cables, you will soon encounter terms you may not be familiar with.The shops carry Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a and Cat7 ethernet cables, but how do these differ from each other?More precisely, which cable should you pick for your home network and are there other things that you need to take into consideration?Cat, which stands for category, defines a cable’s specifications. Categories are backward compatible. A Category 7 cable, for instance, is backward compatible with Category 6 and Category 5e.The most important parameters are maximum transmission speed, shielding, the supported distance and price.Cat5Cat5eCat6Cat6aCat7Maximum speed1000 Mbps1000 Mbps10000 Mbps10000 Mbps100000 MbpsMaximum bandwidth100 MHz100 MHz250 MHz500 MHz1000 MHzDistance100 meters100 meters55 meters *100 meters15 meters *** Goes back to 1000 Mbps if the distance is between 55 and 100 meters.** Speed drops after 15 meters, supports 100000 Mbps up to 100 meters.As far as price is concerned: the higher the Category the higher the price. Price does not really play much of a role if you just need to connect a computer to a router but it makes a difference if you cable your entire apartment, house or Office building.Short range Cat7 Ethernet cables are not expensive. You can grab a pack of 2 Cat7 Ethernet 2m cables on Amazon for $8.99, and a ~7.50m cable for $12.98.A three meter Cat6 cable is available for $6.29 and a 15 meter Cat6 Ethernet cable for $11.90.Which cable should you get?The question remains, which cable should you get? The answer depends on your situation. My suggestion is that you pick a Cat6a or Cat7 Ethernet cable even if your network equipment does not require it right now. Getting these cables means that the cable is future proof when you install faster equipment.If you need to cable your entire house, I’d suggest you go with Cat7a if you can afford it and want to be as future proof as possible as you get a maximum speed of 40 Gigabit Ethernet up to 50 meters and 100000 Mbps Ethernet up to 15 meters.You may also pick Cat6a or Cat5e instead which are cheaper and should work equally well in most scenarios. Cat5a’s main advantage besides price is that it is more flexible than Cat6 or Cat7 cables.Most home routers, motherboards and standalone Ethernet cards support up to 1 Gbps which all modern Ethernet cables support.So, any Cat5e or higher cable works fine in that case and if you don’t care about how things may change in the next 5 or 10 years, you can pick a Cat5e cable and get max speed out of your devices.Now You: Which Ethernet cables do you use, and why?ResourcesCategory 6 Cable WikipediaCategory 7 Cable WikipediaDemystifying Ethernet Types— Difference between Cat5e, Cat 6, and Cat7SummaryArticle NameShould you get a Cat6 or Cat7 Ethernet cable for your network?DescriptionWhen you search on Amazon, Newegg or any other shopping site for ethernet cables, you will soon encounter terms you may not be familiar with.The shops carry Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a and Cat7 ethernet cables, but how do these differ from each other?Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

editors@timecomBefore he left for Asia President Trump said his Administration would be working to pass a tax reform bill “They’ll be all over the country working on it” he said “But specifically they’ll be working on the members of the House members of the Senate … We need tax cuts” But while White House staffers have been working with Congress the president himself has taken a number of steps that have only made it much more difficult to pass from feuding with a Republican senator on Twitter to throwing out controversial ideas that could complicate negotiations The president’s unhelpfulness has appeared as it often does on Twitter Last week he took to the platform to ask Republicans to use tax reform to repeal the individual mandate that acts as the linchpin of the Affordable Care Act Such a move would complicate efforts to win over the Republicans who voted against repealing the health care legislation over the summer I am proud of the Rep House & Senate for

Donald J Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19 2017 Republican Congressional aides acknowledge that Trump’s free-wheeling approach has not helped the bill’s chances but they point to outreach from other senior officials in the Administration as constructive Even as other issues occupied Trump’s attention chief White House economic adviser Gary Cohn and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have spent months meeting with Senate and House Republicans to convey a White House position on tax policy Cohn a former investment banker in particular has won over Congressional Republicans who appreciate his knowledge of economic policy and his direct approach “From the Administrations perspective the people doing the heavy lifting come from [the National Economic Council] and Treasury” says a GOP congressional aide “These are seasoned professionals leading” But challenges remain despite the insistence that Congressional Republicans have been collaborating with their colleagues on the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue Cohn has been viewed as embattled since he criticized the president this summer for his controversial remarks on violence Charlottesville Mnuchin meanwhile has less knowledge of the legislative process and has suffered from a series of public relations hiccups including most recently viral photos of he and his wife posing with newly minted money perceived as out of touch Pressed on what Trump aides brought to discussions with Republicans in Congress a GOP aide on the Hill responded that they have “knowledge about how a bill becomes a law” Meantime Trump continues to claim that Democrats could be key to passing tax reform but he and his aides have made little effort to attract votes from across the aisle “Their version of bipartisanship has been to slap down a version of the bill and say we want Democratic support” says a Senate Democratic aide “It was never real” On Monday White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that the Administration still hoped for Democratic votes “Seems like something they should be running to cast their vote for” she said at the daily briefing Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecomRepublican Rep Jason Chaffetz introduced the "Local Enforcement for Local Lands Act” in January that calls for eliminating all US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management officersInstead Chaffetz’ bill HR 622 would provide federal block grants for local sheriff’s offices to expand their patrols to cover the areas now covered by the federal officersThat includes the 39 million-acre Superior National Forest and 655000-acre Chippewa National Forest in Minnesota and the 15 million-acre Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in WisconsinCurrently the Superior National Forest has four law enforcement officers the Chippewa has two officers and the Chequamegon-Nicolet has four officersThe bill is one of several efforts by western state lawmakers aiming to reduce federal control over millions of acres of federal land in those states More than 70 percent of Utah is federal landChaffetz said his bill gets the federal resource management agencies out of a mission law enforcement he says they shouldn’t be in"It’s time to get rid of the BLM and US Forest Service police If there is a problem your local sheriff is the first and best line of defense By restoring local control in law enforcement we enable federal agencies and county sheriffs to each focus on their respective core missionsChaffetz said in a statement announcing the bill in January(Chaffetz at the same time introduced legislation to sell more than three million acres of federal public lands to the highest bidder but has since abandoned that bill after vehement opposition mounted)Critics say the law enforcement bill would leave hundreds of millions of acres vulnerable to abuse and lawless behavior taxing state and local authorities and "fundamentally compromising American’s safety both in and around public lands"Critics said the bill is anti-fishing anti-hunting and anti-camping an effort to push citizens off their own lands to hand control over to poachers as well as mining logging and ranching interests They said the bill caters to local extremists such as the anti-government group that took over a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon last yearCritics of the bill said federal officers of forests are experts on crimes involving archaeological resources tribal treaty rights endangered species timber theft poaching and wildfires Eliminating federal officers would only encourage more illegal behavior they said "To us these are the folks (federal officers) who are on the front lines of conservation making sure that our resources are not only taken care of but that laws are taken care of” said Land Tawney president and CEO of Montana-based Backcountry Hunters & Anglers a group that advocates for public lands "Having local sheriffs handle (natural resource) laws is like having your dentist perform gallbladder surgery"Local state and federal officers enhance each other’s efforts not overlap several retired officers said in a telephone press conference Wednesday Federal agents can cross county and state lines to solve cases they addedIt’s not that local and state officers don’t already work in the national forests but federal officers generally handle issues that pertain to federal laws In many cases when state laws are broken local and state officers already handle cases on federal landsMoreover land being patrolled by federal officers doesn’t belong to residents of just one county but everyone in the nation critics said"Turning the function of federal law enforcement officers to local departments just doesn’t work” said Pat O’Carroll executive director of the 26000-member Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association O’Carroll said federal officers are free from local political pressures that can impact how cases are approachedSt Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman said the bill would only work if enough extra money flowed to local agencies to hire new staff But even then he noted his officers can’t enforce federal laws"Generally speaking we do work very well with all” federal officers Litman said "If we are assuming their responsibilities it means more work for us If the funding doesn’t come along for additional staff that would be a bad deal for our office and the taxpayers of this county The other consideration is we are (state) peace officers We don’t have the authority to enforce federal laws"The House bill has other western state co-authors No similar bill has been introduced as of yet in the SenateFormer Minister of Education Oby Ezekwesili has called on Nigerians to vote out the “old order” politicians in the forthcoming 2019 general election The Convener of the Red Card Movement urged Nigerians to come out in their numbers to vote and protect their votes come 2019 Ezekwesili made the call at a one-day conference organised by ‘The Church Must Vote’ an NGO on Monday in Abuja She said that it was time for Nigerians to determine the quality of leadership they get through massive voting According to her the quality of democracy is dependent on the quality of vote and INEC protection of the vote of Nigerians ”We must compel INEC to gather some of the cases of vote buying and selling that they have identified and take them to court ”We must compel the Judiciary to act and not to defer judgement on such matters because our democracy is under existential treat ”Citizens must understand the power they possess and through that power you determine the quality of leaders to lead the country “It is time to build a nation with leaders who were elected on the bases of character competence and capacity ”So I support The Church Must Vote to say your vote must count because your vote does count if it didn’t count they will not pay for it ”It is time to decide that nobody can pay for your vote because it is priceless the people are dependent on the quality of leaders that they get for themselves ”So let our vote count; we must cry out if we see our vote being bought or stolen” she said it may surprise those who ran the NYC Marathon in its salad days.
