Burning issues

first_imgA day after complete anarchy unfolded during BJP president Amit Shah’s roadshow in Kolkata when a vicious attack on one of Bengal’s most revered figures, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, took place, the whole state plunged into a cultural vacuum overnight. While preparations were on for his bicentenary celebrations, his bust at Vidyasagar College was desecrated and broken into pieces. The incident drew widespread criticism not only from Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee but also from the Bengali intelligentsia and the people of the state in general. Terming it to be “quite unfortunate and a well-planned attack on the college,” she said: “BJP will have to pay for vandalising the statue of Vidyasagar.” In Bengal, there is a deep connect with the legacy of the land, an emotion that is closely associated with the greatest reformers and social thinkers who were born here and left an ever-lasting impact on the culture and aesthetics of this part of the country that led to the Bengali Renaissance. Any attack and onslaught on such institutions will lead to a massive outcry, as has been witnessed in the case of Vidyasagar College incident. Creative personalities from various professions condemned the attack and raised their voices against what they termed as the “distasteful” attitude of the Narendra Modi government and urged people to “vote for Mamata Banerjee who is putting up a fierce resistance against the Modi-Shah tyranny”. Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, musician Kabir Suman, a former TMC MP, said: “I do not want the Modi-Shah government to remain in power at the Centre. Mamata Banerjee is putting up a fierce resistance against the Modi government and I urge voters to support her. This BJP government does not respect human values and only sow seeds of communalism. BJP is today attempting to use Vivekananda in Bengal for political mileage and shouting out his name but refuses to conform to his ideals.” Echoing similar thoughts, poet Joy Goswami said: “We feel embarrassed that such a time has come when we need to hold conferences discussing how our basic values of life are in jeopardy. BJP is demeaning Bengal.” TMC leaders have come up with irrefutable evidence showing BJP goons, part of Amit Shah’s rally, rampaging and vandalising Vidyasagar’s bust, showing no respect or love for Bengal’s culture. Thus, the burning issue is that such leaders of our nation cannot respect their own icons, they do not believe in the doctrines of those who shaped the identity of this land, and have forgotten the true spirit of revolution that formed the foundation of our freedom. It has, therefore, become absolutely compelling to evoke sentiments of nationalist pride and honour and to judiciously cast one’s own vote because today, it is simply now or never!last_img read more

Masdar and ONEE to Supply 17,670 Homes in Rural Morocco With…

Rabat – UAE-based company Masdar and Morocco’s Office National de L’Electricite et de L’Eau Potable (ONEE) will supply 17,670 homes across 940 villages in Morocco with solar home systems as part of rural electrification. The solar homes, along with broader electrification initiatives, will result in 99 per cent of rural Morocco having access to energy by the end of 2017, a statement said. The project is funded through a grant by the government of Abu Dhabi.The agreement was signed in Casablanca between Ali Fassi-Fihri, director general of ONEE and Sultan Ahmad Al Jaber, UAE minister if state and chairman of clean energy firm Masdar. Ali Fassi-Fihri, director general of ONEE, said: “This project fits perfectly with the strategy of the Moroccan Government for the development of rural areas through the achievement of basic infrastructure.“Rural electrification through Solar Home Systems is part of an ambitious programme launched by the Moroccan Government in 1996, which allowed access by connecting to the national grid more than 12 million people and equipped 51,559 homes with solar systems,” he added.Each solar home system consists of 290-watt solar panels, which charge two batteries with sufficient storage capacity for three days.ONEE and Masdar will design, supply, install and commission the project. Masdar will provide maintenance and operational training for two year, which ONEE will take over and maintain.On this occasion, Masdar chairman Sultan Ahmad Al Jaber said: “the UAE has longstanding bilateral ties with Morocco, and this project reflects our commitment to work together to enhance economic and social opportunity.”“We look forward to working with our strategic partners to complete this project and demonstrate the positive impact of improving access to energy through solar power,” he added. read more

Rich countries fall short on providing safe water sanitation for all –

16 September 2011While three of the world’s most developed countries – United States, Japan and Slovenia – generally comply with the human right of providing their people with safe water and sanitation, they fall short when it comes to marginalized populations, a United Nations expert said today. “I was especially shocked by what I saw in Sacramento, California, where the city decided to shut down or to restrict the opening hours of public restrooms, forcing homeless people to improvise other types of solutions to be able to exercise the right to sanitation,” UN Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, Catarina de Albuquerque, said in releasing her report on her visit to the US earlier this year. “Open defecation, open urination have been criminalized. So what happens is that someone can be criminalized just because he/she does not have a place to do his physiological needs.” She cited parallel discrimination against the Korean minority in Japan and Roma in Slovenia. She noted that people living in the US enjoy near universal access to safe water, but warned that an estimated annual funding gap of $4 billion to $6 billion for infrastructure in the sector raises the question of whether the system will carry the country into the 21st century. She called for targeting policies to reach the hidden and poorest segments, noting that problems of discrimination in the US water and sanitation services may intensify in the coming years with climate change and competing demands for ever scarcer resources.“Ensuring the rights to water and sanitation for all requires a paradigm shift towards new designs and approaches that promote human rights, that are affordable and that create more value in terms of public health improvements, community development, and global ecosystem protection,” she said, calling for a systemic approach that views the water, agricultural, chemical, industrial and energy sectors as one and takes into account pollution and industrial waste.She also urged the Government to ratify international conventions on the issue, adopt a comprehensive federal law guaranteeing the rights to safe water and sanitation without discrimination, and ensure that all municipalities provide access to safe drinking water and sanitation to homeless people, including through ensuring the opening and regular maintenance and upkeep of public restrooms, including during the night.Turning to Japan, Ms. de Albuquerque commended the country for ensuring access to safe water and sanitation for the vast majority of the population, but said special attention was needed for groups that have been marginalized or otherwise disadvantaged. She urged the Government to adopt a comprehensive law on non-discrimination, provide access for homeless people, and eliminate discrimination against minorities and persons with disabilities.She cited the case of a woman, almost 90 years old, in a community near Kyoto with no sewage system, who still had to collect water from a well as she did not have piped water in her house. “And why did this happen?” Ms. de Albuquerque asked. “It happened because she belongs to a minority, she belongs to a Korean minority and because the community she lives in is entrenched in a legal dispute over the ownership of the land where they are living at. All the communities around had access to piped water, of excellent quality, as is normal in Japan, and they all had access to a sewage treatment. But this little community was deprived of this type of access because of this legal dispute.”On Slovenia, Ms. de Albuquerque concluded that the Government was meeting its human rights obligations on water and sanitation for the vast majority of its population, but again voiced serious concerns for those who are excluded in violation of the obligations, calling for steps to provide security of tenure to all Roma communities and in the interim ensure access to safe drinking water and sanitation regardless of legal status.She cited the case of a man who, almost with tears in his eyes, told her his daughter came home saying she did not want to go to school because the other kids teased and said she smelled.“And the father said: ‘I know she smells, but we do not have water in our place.’ And when I asked him, ‘what did you do?,’ he said: ‘The only thing I could do was to hug her and cry with her’.”Summing up, she said: “As human rights, all people, without discrimination, must have access to safe drinking water and sanitation, which is affordable, acceptable, available. States must continually take steps to ensure that access to these fundamental rights is guaranteed.” read more

Robert Griffin III Finally Signs With Redskins

Finally, all the haggling came to an end and the Robert Griffin III era with the Washington Redskins began in earnest today with Griffin signing a contract worth $21,119,098 over the next four years. He can join his teammates in the final days of a five-day mini-camp.Griffin offered on Twitter: “Well people…. It’s Time to go to Work!!! off the unemployment line and oh yeah HTTR!!!!”The deal is very much like the one given to last year’s second-overall pick, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller, and about $12 million less than the guaranteed figure given to St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Jason Smith, the last second-overall pick signed before the rookie wage scale went into effect. Smith signed a six-year, $61.775 million deal with $33 million in guarantees.Griffin’s contract, which includes a $13.8 million signing bonus, contains no “offset language,” according to one person with knowledge of the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because all its aspects have not been made public. That provision had been a stumbling block in negotiations for many top picks.Without the language, the Redskins would owe Griffin the full amount of his guaranteed contract if they release him and he signs with another team, regardless of his salary from the new franchise.As with all contracts given to the top-10 picks, there is a team option for a fifth year. Should the Redskins exercise that option, they would pay Griffin the transition tag value in the fifth season, which is the average salary among the 10 highest-paid quarterbacks in that year.The highest draft pick to sign before today was Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly, who was taken with the ninth overall pick and received a four-year, $12.58 million deal.The Redskins traded up with the St. Louis Rams from the sixth slot to the second to take the highly productive Baylor quarterback, and they paid a high price in doing so. Washington gave up their sixth overall pick in 2012, their first-round picks in 2013 and 2014, and a second-round pick in 2012 for the pleasure of ensuring their franchise quarterback. read more

Male pill one step closer as scientists make startling discovery

first_imgThey approach was tested in the lab on bovine and human sperm, with live animal tests due to start within three years.Prof Howl said it was “too early to say” if the end result would be a pill, a nasal spray or a sub-skin implant, but said all were possibilities.Research has suggested that around half of sexually active men would consider taking the male contraceptive pill.Other studies are examining the use of injections to block sperm, using polymers.John Guillebaud, emeritus professor of family planning and reproductive health at University College London, said a reversible male contraceptive would be “of enormous benefit to many couples” including when women could not take the pill for medical reasons. Lead researcher Professor John Howl, of Wolverhampton University, said the new compound, made in the lab, had shown immediate results.“The results are startling – and almost instant. When you take healthy sperm and add our compound, within a few minutes the sperm basically cannot move,” he said .Working with scientists from Portugal, the team made a compound called a cell-penetrating peptide. So far, male contraception has been limited to condoms and vasectomies Credit:Alamy  Condoms Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings.center_img “This is a totally unique approach,” said Prof Howl. “Nobody else has ever done this before,” he told The Mail on Sunday.Peptides are short chains of amino acids which influence how human cells work. They occur naturally but can also be created synthetically.The breakthough came after scientists in Wolverhampton demonstrated that particular peptides could penetrate sperm cells. Then fertility experts at Aveiro University in Portugal, who had identified the crucial protein which drives sperm to swim, created a bespoke compound which turned the protein off. Scientists have made a breakthrough which could be key to developing a male contraceptive pill.The discovery uses a peptide which changes the way human cells work, “switching off” sperm’s ability to swim, to render men temporarily infertile.Scientists hailed the results as “startling – and almost instant.”It raises the prospect of a fast-acting pill or a nasal spray that a man could take hours or even minutes before sex.Women are typically advised to stop taking the Pill weeks or even months before trying to conceive.But researchers believe the effects of a male pill would happen almost instantly, with effects wearing off within a matter of days.Family planning experts said a reversible male contraceptive could help men control their fertility, and benefit couples where the woman does not want to take the Pill. He added:  “It would also help men who want to have control over their own fertility – for example, to ensure they do not get trapped into having a child by a woman who says she is on the Pill, but isn’t.”last_img read more

Recycling rocks at annual Recycled Arts Festival in Vancouver

first_imgSome humble Clark County creative people who might not consider themselves actual artists have been recycling nature’s leftovers into art for years. Transforming unremarkable stones into whimsical works of art, and then hiding them in the landscape for strangers to find — under a bench, beside a flower, in the hand of the Captain George Vancouver statue near City Hall — has grown into a pastime for these followers of that credo about “committing random acts of kindness and senseless beauty.” They’ve even created a semi-organized online group that’s called, of course, Vancouver Rocks! They should feel right at home at the 13th annual Recycled Arts Festival in Esther Short Park, set for June 23 to 24, where more than 130 folks who definitely consider themselves artists will be showing off an astonishing assortment of cleverly recycled creations. Broken glass becomes glittering, colorful mosaics. Scrap metal and leftover gears and pulleys find new uses as steam-punky furniture, lamps, clocks. Vintage fabrics and fashions become … stylish new fabrics and fashions. Cast-off wood fragments turn into hand-lettered signs and other wall hangings. Watch parts and medallions transform into unique jewelry.It’s all made of at least 75 percent materials that were snatched from the waste stream and transformed from used-up into useful, or simply beautiful. “The Recycled Arts Festival celebrates creativity while promoting environmental sustainability,” said event founder Sally Fisher of Clark County Public Health. “I’m always amazed at the novel ways these artists turn trash into art.”last_img read more

Guardiola impressed by Wolves

Social Entrepreneurs Driving Innovation

first_imgToday we’re innovating. If you head up to the fourth floor of the Loussac Library on just about any given day, you’ll find a number of different groups working in the innovation lab.Download Audio“Groups and what they talk about include everything from overseas consulates, federal organizations, crafters, hobbyists,” Darla Hane, the coordinator of the innovation lab, said. “They really run the gamut.”She says to think of the lab as part brainstorm, part real-world application. For example, let’s say you’re a band that’s looking for a place to practice.“We want to help that group not only create music but also have an understanding of band contracts, band writers and copyright laws and how it applies to them,” Hane said. “If they want help with their websites we can connect them with programmers or web designers.”“It’s a very holistic approach to it.”The group that’s meeting tonight is fairly new; only their second week. They’re called the social entrepreneurs.“Social entrepreneurs approach entrepreneurship in a way that a regular entrepreneur would, but they also approach it with the thought that the outcome of their business model should have a direct impact on the social good of their community,” she said.Hane says the group, much like the lab itself, is diverse. There’s the Dean of APU, a graduate student, a small business owner, and a song writer to name a few. Tonight’s discussion is about how to offer free cash checking and bill paying to Anchorage residents.“The gist of it is there are 13.5 million people in the US that have a job, but don’t have a bank account,” Thomas Gokey, who is part of a group called Strike Debt, said. “I don’t know specific numbers for Anchorage.”He describes it as an Occupy Wall Street offshoot focused on reducing debt in the US. He says free check cashing is just one way to do that.“On average it costs you 10 percent of your income just to access and spend your money if you don’t have a bank account,” Gokey said.Gokey says that’s because banks charge to cash and write checks if you’re not a member. Also, there are penalties for certain purchases if you don’t have a bank account. Purchases like a car. Gokey is hoping his fellow social entrepreneurs can help create a business that could bypass the bank.“The service provided is super simple,” Gokey said. “You just need someone to turn a check into cash, and write a check to pay bills.”“What is the chance that a bank would say ‘we can do that in our bank.’ I mean I can see why they’d say no, but I can also think of benefits to the bank. Because when this person does finally decide they want a bank account, where are they likely to bank?”Oddly enough, director Darla Hane says she knows a few bankers that frequent the innovation lab. She’s going to invite them to the group’s next meeting.“Let’s talk to some bankers. Yay! It’ll be great,” Hane said.I asked Darla how often something works out that perfect at the lab. She tells me it happens all the time.“Collaboration is a big part of the innovation lab,” Hane said. “Just tonight one of the guys here was talking about his patent, and so he used some of the other lab guests to apply for his patent.”The patent wasn’t finalized, so Hane wasn’t able to give me any details. Not unless I show up next week of course.last_img read more

Football FieldSized Asteroid To Pass Close To Earth In September Has Low

first_img DEAL OF THE DAY 2006 QV89 is 131 feet in diameter, and on Sept. 9, the asteroid will pass 4.26 million miles away from the Earth. Just for comparison, the moon is about 238,000 miles away from the Earth.Asteroid 2006 QV89Asteroid 2006 QV89 was actually first observed in 2006 by the Catalina Sky Observatory in Arizona. However, it was not the first time that the space rock flew close to Earth. It flew close to Earth twice in the 1950s, once in the 1960s, once in the 1970s, and twice again in the 1980s. According to ESA, after September, the next time that it will fly close to Earth will be in 2032.Most of space rubble are orbiting the sun around Mars and Jupiter. They are rocky, airless bodies that are actually the remnants of when our solar system was created 4.6 billion years ago. So far, the current asteroid count is at 795,893, with sizes ranging from just 33 feet across to 329 miles in diameter.

Prodemocracy protests may affect travel to Hong Kong

first_imgPro-democracy protests have erupted across the streets of Hong Kong, recently turning aggressive as police have now resorted to using tear gas to halt the protestor’s progress.The protests spawned from Beijing, where the government stated they would allow elections but they would choose the candidates, and the public believe it is a fake democracy, as reported the Sydney Morning Herald.As a result, the protests have caused widespread travel chaos to Hong Kong with many schools and businesses also shut.A representative from the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) in Sydney told ETB News that currently, operation in most districts in Hong Kong remains normal, with various areas including Admirality, Central, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok impacted by special incidents.“We advise visitors to avoid these areas until further notice, unless necessary, and our visitor centres at major ports-of-entry and in the city, as well as the HKTB visitor hotline, is standing by ready to provide visitors with assistance,” HKTB said.No airlines have halted their services to and from Hong Kong, however Cathay Pacific did offer some advice for travellers, saying public transport around the airport is likely to be affected.Travellers needing public transport are advised to have a backup plan for reaching their destination, due to train lines across the city being blocked off by protestors.The main concern is that the protests will make their way to mainland China, which may cause them to get out of control and severely affect travel to the Asian nation.Meanwhile, despite the protests towards the government, the city’s stock exchange says it will operate as usual, although the Hong Kong Monetary Authority says 17 banks have been forced to close 29 branches across the city.Due to the banks closing, Hong Kong’s shares tumbled and the Hong Kong dollar hit a six-month low, and if the protests don’t draw to an end soon the economy could get worse.For further up to date information, please see HKTB’s official websiteSource = ETB News: Lewis Wiseman & Lana Bogunovichlast_img read more
