Canada has a lot to offer travellers during sesquicentennial year

first_img FREDERICTON — Canada already has a lot to offer travellers, but as the country celebrates its 150th birthday in 2017 with a year full of sesquicentennial celebrations, there’s even more to see and do.“Because of the celebrations happening around the country, a normal festival event will be that more special because of the 150th anniversary. We see a lot of interest by Canadians to travel within Canada,” said Gary Howard of the Canadian Automobile Association.Howard said he’s hearing from people interested in exploring areas of the country they haven’t been to, or visiting favourite places again.“I think you will see a lot of movement with people from Eastern Canada going to the West, and vice versa,” he said.Howard said he expects most of the travel will be during the summer months, with the peak around Canada Day, July 1.He said there many great places to enjoy and take part in the birthday celebrations.“Charlottetown and Ottawa are the obvious ones, but I think that we will see each and every city and community is going to have its own celebration. You think about the Calgary Stampede _ it’s going to be much better in 2017 because they’ll use that event to get more excited about the 150th. There’s going to be lots of options right across the country.”More news:  Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaTravel media company Lonely Planet has named Canada as the No.1 country to visit in 2017.“Bolstered by the wave of positivity unleashed by its energenic new leader Justin Trudeau, and with dynamic cities that dominate global livability indices and a reputation for inclusiveness and impeccable politeness, the world’s second-largest country will usher in its sesquicentennial in 2017 in rollicking good health,” their “Best in Travel 2017” guide says.“You add that to the perennial favourites such as Vancouver’s great food scene, the great outdoors in the Canadian Rockies and beautiful fall colours in Nova Scotia. It’s a great destination whatever year it is, but 2017 has a lot to offer,” Lonely Planet spokesman Alex Howard said from his home in Nashville, Tenn.And he said with the weak Canadian dollar, Canada offers a great value.“International travellers, especially those from the United States, are going to have a lot to spend their money on,” he said.More news:  Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaGary Howard said train travel is an interesting way to get across the country and see cities, towns and everything in between.“What we see for Western Canada is rail companies that go from Vancouver to Banff, or Vancouver to Calgary. They do that whole tour through the valley and the Rockies. That’s five to seven days, so it’s a lot shorter, but you have dining onboard, and those companies stop at night so that you’re not missing any of the scenery. They’ll stop at the evening, you stay at a hotel, and get back on in the morning,” he said.He said the cruise ship companies are also adding more ships to routes that make stops on Canada’s east and west coasts. He said it’s a great way to tour Atlantic Canada or British Columbia without having to drive.

Hondurans demand pay for expropriated lands

first_imgTEGUCIGALPA – More than 100 Hondurans on Tuesday demanded the government of Porfirio Lobo pay some $70 million in compensation for the expropriation of 10,000 hectares in the department of Olancho, where a hydroelectric plant project is being developed by a Chinese company.“You want the Patuca III project? Then pay,” read some banners carried by residents of Patuca, a town located 220 miles east of Tegucigalpa, where the project is been built.The government signed an agreement on Feb. 2, 2011, to pay compensation by last October, but landowners have received only 40 percent of the agreed amount, according to Miguel Navarro, president of the board of landowners.Navarro said the dam reservoir and infrastructure will cover some 10,000 hectares expropriated by the government from 400 owners, who he said are still owed $70 million.On April 16, 2011, the Honduran government signed a $50.5 million contract with Chinese firm Sinohydro – one of the world’s largest hydroelectric companies – for the construction of the first stage of the project, which began a month later, despite the lack of diplomatic relations between the two countries.The funds were invested in the construction of a tunnel to divert the powerful flow of the Patuca River, as well as camps for workers and an improvement in access roads to the mountainous areas.A new $350 million contract for the second phase is expected to be signed in coming months to build the dam that will form Lake Patuca, and for the installation of turbines and engine rooms, so that the first tests can be carried out in October.The plant will generate 104 megawatts per hour in the first stage, later expanding to 600 MW per hour.

European Quartet invites travellers from India to Discover Central Europe

first_imgTaking forward a journey that commenced in 2010, the Central European destinations paid their sixth visit to India, encouraging travel fraternity members to ‘Discover Central Europe’ through roadshows conducted in Mumbai followed by New Delhi.The cooperation under foreign national tourist organisations between V4 (European quartet) – Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, dates back to 2003. Despite being strong competitors in the European market, the destinations have collaborated as neighbours to promote themselves at long haul markets like India. “We have established this platform, ‘Discover Central Europe’ for long haul markets. We introduced us in the Indian market for the first time in 2010. Since then, we have been coming every year, hitting different cities. We are now concentrating on Mumbai and New Delhi as the strongest outgoing markets from India,” informed Emilia Kubik, Chief Specialist, Department of Marketing Instruments, Polish Tourist Organisation.Each of the destinations highlighted their respective tourist attractions through audio visual presentations. The delegation comprised Emilia Kubik, Chief Specialist, Department of Marketing Instruments, Polish Tourist Organisation; Robert Vincze, Head, Slovak Convention Bureau; Mark Kinces, International Marketing Manager, Hungarian Tourism Agency; Karina Vitkova, International Marketing Manager, Long-haul Markets, Czech Tourism; Subhash Motwani, Managing Director, Namaste Tourism, Mumbai; along with Mukesh Gupta, Chairman, Tourism Committee, PHD Chamber; Mohit Jain, Chairman, International Affairs Committee Europe, PHD Chamber;  Purrshottam Bhaggeria, Co-Chairman, International Affair Committee Europe, PHD Chamber, and Saurabh Sanyal, Secretary General, PHD Chamber.The roadshow aimed at promoting Central Europe as a all-year-round destination that boasts of a tradition, culture, heritage and visual delights way beyond its respective capital cities of Budapest, Warsaw, Prague and Bratislava.Poland witnessed 26000 Indian arrivals in 2015, informed Kubik. “People are gradually getting familiar with the countries. We have to concentrate on demand from the market. For Polish Tourist Organisation, we plan to bring more and more media people including bloggers, freelancers and others who can influence the community. For tour operators, we are planning some FAM trips as well.”Highlighting Slovakia’s endeavour to promote visitor arrivals from India, Vincze said, “We are trying to use our industry network, find providers interested in the Indian region, find Indian tour operators, to create a matchmaking platform to see the cultural and gastronomical aspects of travellers from India are met. We see potential in Bollywood movie making, MICE, honeymoons and weddings.” Slovakia had a record year last year, registering 4.3 million arrivals to the destination.Czech Republic on the other hand invited all to come and explore the unexplored and experience the ‘Land of Stories’.Motivating travellers to ‘think Hungary-more than expected’, Kinces, corroborated a good value –for-money ratio through an elaborate showcase of its attractions.” For Hungary, India has a great potential. We see huge growth in terms of visitor numbers from the country, this year, by 70% compared to last year. In the last six years, we have seen a growing interest among Indians for the destination. As people get the real experience of Hungary, they are sharing their experience and more and more people tend to come to Hungary. We are encouraging travellers to enjoy the freedom of travel with the Central European region with the Schengen visa,” he said.The presentations were followed by B2B interaction with representations from the destination. “We received a huge response at both Mumbai and New Delhi. The interest from India is very big,” expressed Vincze.last_img read more

The unpaid principal balance for the loans: $73 billion.According to “”_The Business Journal_””:, also pulling from the News Corp. publication, the servicing rights handoff will help Bank of America ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the fourth largest bank as measured on the strength of total deposits ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô resolve and taper off problems it encountered with mortgage-backed securities in the Countrywide Financial purchase.[COLUMN_BREAK]Reuters said the _Journal_ reported that the transfer of rights to Fannie will begin in September and take place over four months, starting with the transition of the first 100,000 loans. It remains unclear how the Bank of America mortgage portfolio sale will impact agency debt at Fannie, which posted $2.9 billion in net losses for second-quarter earnings and announced plans to request $5.1 billion from taxpayers in a recent “”Securities and Exchange Commission””: filing.Speaking to _MReport_, Edward Pinto, a resident fellow with the “”American Enterprise Institute””:, labels federal guarantees for mortgage-backed securities a threat to the overall economic recovery.””The more of this government-guaranteed debt”” Fannie and “”Freddie Mac””: possess, he says, “”the bigger the supply, and the bigger the impact it will have on interest rates, particularly those controlled by the “”Federal Reserve””:””He cites some $5 trillion of public debt outstanding for the GSEs, a combination of mortgage-backed securities and ventures that he says competes with U.S. Treasury debt for attention from investors. Lenders traditionally benchmark mortgage rates against Treasury yields, which plummet when investors buy government bonds.””The Freddie-Fannie agency debt is competing with Treasury debt and driving the costs of interest rates and prices down,”” Pinto says.last_img read more

Tomatoes and other plants naturally rely on molecu

first_imgTomatoes and other plants naturally rely on molecules of ribonucleic acid, or RNA, to recognize and chop up invading sequences of virus DNA, but the pathogen evolves to circumvent this mechanism.“The plants need time to develop another defense if the virus mutates,” Herve said. “It’s kind of an endless battle between the virus and the plant.”Instead of waiting for the process to occur naturally, Nexgen assembles components of existing tomato DNA to target the newest strains of the virus, accelerating the development of resistance, he said.Particles of gold coated with this reconfigured tomato DNA were repeatedly blasted into the plant’s cells. The six virus-resistant lines were created when tomato plants naturally integrated Nexgen’s template into their genes to fight off the viruses.Click here to read the full article.

be a game-changer the likes of which will open the flood gates for television channels to flee the grip of cable companies but there’s also the possibility that for most HBO-watchers it will do nothing at all While HBO already has a streaming service in HBO Go access to it is limited to users who are already paying for HBO through a cable package The new offering HBO Now can be purchased by anybody cable subscriber or not for $1499 a month For the first three months you’ll only be able to sign up on an Apple device That last part the fact that cord cutters can only get HBO independent of big cables bundled programming by using a device like the Apple TV is a bold move to be sure But it might not be all that revolutionary yet Firstly aside from who you pay for the service HBO Now isnt all that different from HBO Go And since the Apple TV set-top box currently offers access to HBO Go Monday’s news isnt all that impactful Thats primarily because HBO doesnt care if you’re a cable subscriber sharing your password (or using one your cable-subscribing friend gave you) Of course HBO’s posture could change dramatically once their new web-only model goes live in April But if not the Apple deal is a red herring to the fact that Apple seems to have lost some cachet in the streaming box space over the last year For instance Apple rival Roku registered 10 million devices in the wild as of September 2014 roughly half of Apples haul at that time The independent streaming set-top box company has long been a popular choice among cord-cutters whose loyalty rivals that of well Apple fans Boasting a no-frill responsive interface that connects with a wide range of video providers Roku got its start as the first box to bring Netflix to televisions and now boasts every major streaming service other than Apples iTunes In fact you can even watch regional Time Warner Cable programming on it As for Google after mothballing its coldly received Google TV service (which launched roughly around the time of the original Apple TV) the search giants Chromecast was the first device to drive the price of streaming gadgets down debuting at just $35 The small dongle doesnt stream video on its own which means it requires a smartphone tablet or computer to push content to it But since smartphones put that capability in just about everyones pocket Chromecast has become a very popular accessory to have in the living room Last year Google also released Android TV a television operating system thats essentially a reboot of Google TV though its much closer in features to Roku and Apple TV It also seems to be following the same downward trajectory as its predecessor The newest major entrant in the race for the living room is the Amazon Fire TV a streaming box thats causing the most problems for Apples unbundled service aspirations Debuting at the special cut-rate price of $69 (its now gone up to $99) Fire TV rivals Apples iTunes offerings with an equally impressive selection of digital rentals or purchases But it also offers the Prime Instant Video library free to the 30 million users who subscribe to Amazons shipping-free shopping program In addition Fire TV will pull live television directly from Sling TVs new $20 per month cord-cutting service a feat that Apple wants to accomplish only without a partnership And Monday’s HBO Now deal was Apple’s first step in that direction But in the meantime the majority of Apple TVs apps require that viewers log in via their cable company user accounts which makes Apple TV less a cord-cutting tool than a cable companion box With a new price of $69 (down from $99) this shortcoming is forgivable but Tim Cook and company are not in the market to make amends they want to make changes to the way television works letting you pick and pay for only the channels you actually want But until the rest of the channels unbundle from big cable like HBO has done Apple TV won’t rule streaming television nor to take

for its sought after Switch hybrid TV-handheld game console has been delayed to 2018 the company announced by way of a revamped website for the service That’s the bad news The good however is that online multiplayer currently offered on a per title basis will remain gratis until the paid service is ready to rock and roll Front or back half of next year Nintendo is only saying “2018” at this point But it’s also divulging other details we didn’t yet know As expected the full service will involve a devoted smartphone app that interacts with your Nintendo Switch and helps you link up with friends for online play The app will include an online lobby and voice chat says Nintendo including the option to invite friends to play online set play appointments or chat with friends during online matches in games that support the feature “all from your smart device” says Nintendo Subscribers will be able to download classic Nintendo titles with additional online features including Super Mario Bros 3 Balloon Fight and Dr Mario says the company They may also enjoy discounts on select titles and other content as a side perk And Nintendo is finally talking service pricing revealing three tiers: $399 per month $799 per three months or $1999 per 12 months Microsoft and Sony whose established services would at this point yield apples-to-oranges comparisons with Nintendo’s each offer online subscription plans for $5999 a year Nintendo As of today the only “paid online” features not available are the online lobby and voice chat app “classic game selection” (Nintendo notes this name is “subject to change”) and eShop deals Everything else announced so far is live now Why not integrate these smartphone app features into the Switch itself Isn’t the Switch essentially a smartphone-ish device shifted sideways Who knows the mind of Nintendo but we can speculate a bit like noticing that smartphones are vastly better at being general social engagement hubs than gamepads

first career win over former world number one Rafael Nadal at the eighth time of asking to reach the semi-finals of the China Open on Friday Dimitrov ranked 20th in the world knocked out the second seed 6-2 6-4 to set up a clash with Canada’s Milos Raonic Top seed Andy Murray faced some stern resistance against fellow Briton Kyle Edmund before winning 7-6(9) 6-2 Edmund’s barrage of heavy forehands worried Murray in the opening set and the world number two trailed 2-5 in the tiebreak and had to save a set point before converting his fifth Despite Edmund breaking early in the second set Murray raised his level to win six games in a row “He (Edmund) made it very tough for me He’s improving at a solid pace now… If he keeps going on the path he’s on just now he’ll be up at the top of the game very soon” Murray a three-times grand slam winner told reporters Murray will face fifth seed David Ferrer in the semis after the Spaniard beat in-form 19-year-old Alexander Zverev 6-7(4) 6-1

beat the 30-year-old Spaniard “It’s obvious that Grigor played much better than me and he deserved to win” Nadal said of a match that began with five consecutive service breaks “I fought until the last ball but was going against psychologically bad feelings because I was suffering with my serve When that happens you have to go to the next tournament because you don’t deserve to win like this”

advance For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsIn stark contrast with the previous rounds round seven of the London Chess Classic saw as many as three decisive games With this explosion in its antepenultimate round the tournament title is now within the reach of seven out of the ten players The biggest result of the round was the game between Ian Nepomniachtchi and Viswanathan Anand which the former won and joined Fabiano Caruana as the tournament leader Playing from the white side of an English Opening Nepomniachtchi played ambitiously from the very start of the game On his seventh move the Russian Grand Master offered a pawn with the hope of generating an attack along the semi-open file that it would create Anand accepted the offered sacrifice and felt his position was pretty good out of the opening But soon complications arose as Nepomniachtchi began his kingside attack along the g-file In the opinion of the computers this was still playable From a human perspective however there were complications that needed to be taken care of and there was definite pressure on Anand’s position And as has been the case with Anand lately he cracked under this pressure and misjudged the position on move 27 A blunder on the 36th move forced resignation on the part of the Indian At one point Anand even missed exchanging queens which could have helped his cause Although Nepomniactchi thought the queen exchange would have given him better prospects in the endgame File image of Viswanathan Anand AFP After his escape in the previous round against Hikaru Nakamura Magnus Carlsen not only escaped another loss but actually ended up winning from a dead lost position against Michael Adams But a few slips by Adams allowed Carlsen to hang on for the time being Carlsen clearly wanted to stir things up against Adams who is one of the players at the bottom Also Carlsen has a dominating overall score against the English No 1 of 10 wins against one in favour of the world champion So it’s natural that he wanted to try and win this one especially since he needs to win games if he wants to catch up with the tournament leader Fabiano Caruana Perhaps therefore Carlsen opened with the Bird’s Opening Adams however was ready for the test it seemed as the otherwise solid English Grand Master went for some complicated variations and sacrificed a knight early in the game in order to catch white’s queen in a mouse trap Soon Carlsen’s position began looking suspect and eventually it seemed the world champion was going to suffer his first loss of the tournament Whichever god Carlsen was praying to at this point more than answered his prayers as Adams failed to find the right continuation and let Carlsen’s queen off the hook Soon afterwards both players made back to back blunders and reached a positon where Carlsen had a rook and two minor pieces against Adams’ two rooks But in this endgame Adamsbegan making inexplicable errors one after another and eventually ended up conceding a full point to the world champion "I obviously miscalculated pretty badly I thought I was basically lost or close to lost if he played 14…Rac8 and then played 15…Bd4+ after that I mean I can fight on like 15Qxa7 Bd4+ 16cxd4 Qxd4+ 17Be3 Nxe3 18Kh1 but even if he just makes quiet move like 18.Bc6 or 18.Be6 or something I thought it should be basically lost At least practically speaking I didn’t think I could possibly hold this” said Carlsen about the initial phase of the game The third win of the day was scored by the French No 1 Maxime Vachier-Lagrave Vachier-Lagrave is one of the contenders for the top spot of the overall Grand Chess Tour and winning this event will put him ahead of the current leader Carlsen This was therefore a welcome victory for him Playing with the whites Sergey Karjakin given the way this tournament is going for him currently made an almost suicidal decision of going for a sharp topical variation of the Sicilian Najdorf an opening in which Vachier-Lagrave is a world renowned expert But amusingly despite the players playing a sharp line there weren’t too many tactical skirmishes in the game With this win the Frenchman has kept the chances of winning not only the London Chess Classic but also the overall Grand Chess Tour alive while Karjakin along with Anand and Adams has no more hopes remaining of winning the title prize in London After this explosive antepenultimate round there have been quite a few changes in the leaderboard With back to back wins in roundssix and seven Nepomniachtchi has raised his score up to 45/7 and joined Caruana in the lead Carlsen and Vachier-Lagrave are just half-a-point behind them with a score of 40/7 Hikaru Nakamura and Levon Aronian have played really enterprising chess so far but haven’t quite been able to pull out a win They remain at 50% with 35/7 Anand Karjakin and Adams are at the bottom of the table with 25/7 Crosstable after round 7 She has come to India. read more

them In case there is some gentleman who uses a wrong expression we inform him that it is inappropriate Almost 5000-plus candidates are contesting from 549 parliamentary constituencies and they end up saying something against each other If somebody uses abusive language he should know that people are watching RAGHVENDRA RAO: How is Amit Shah’s case different from Azam Khan’s After we issued a notice to Amit Shah within 24 hours he sent an apology He gave his arguments but at the same time said that he apologises sincerely and would never repeat such a thing in the elections Azam Khan submitted his reply recently He has also come down a lot from his earlier stand RAGHVENDRA RAO: Is an apology enough The EC is like a referee More than the EC it is the political parties which should take the responsibility for their candidates Who selects the candidate Who campaigns for the candidate The political party If the political party has a strong leadership then the quality of discipline is better The disciplining of a candidate is the responsibility of the chairman of his party The EC can only implement the model code of conduct The role of the political party is paramount D K SINGH: Regarding the legal limitations of the model code of conduct do you feel it needs to change I can gather both strong opposition and strong support for this We conduct elections in less than 60 days — from the day of announcement to the day of results You convert rules of the Act into statuary provisions; for every small thing there will be a case in the court How do you resolve the issue I don’t know what kind of solution we can have for this D K SINGH: What is your opinion on this We have an open mind We have not formed our ideas on what should be the structure or status of code of conduct should we make it into a statute or not I think there needs to be a debate on this; it should be studied in detail Look at the sheer number and size of the country How many violations were there The

while filing their nominations some sort of a gentleman’s agreement Is there no way to crack down on candidates who spend much more than the limit Regarding the expenditure limit I do agree Political parties say they have more than a crore of rupees We had a meeting with political parties and one party mentioned Rs 1 crore-plus There is a rise in income rise in expenditure inflation The limit of Rs 10 lakh which we gave earlier is now Rs 70 lakh This is sufficient India is a cash economy everything is paid in cash There is no bar on carrying money I can carry Rs 100 crore in my car but no one will question me as long as I can give details pertaining to the source of income Nowhere in the world this kind of thing is there In India if you give me cash I am happy That’s why there is a problem SHYAMLAL YADAV: Recently the EC told us in an RTI reply that no action has been taken against candidates who have given false declarations and the Income-Tax department is also not taking your advice seriously What is the use of declaring assets then About the assets you must have seen the Supreme Court’s March 2014 judgment The affidavit you give has to be true If the affidavit is found wrong or you have done something illegal it can be a case in the tribunal punishable with a jail term There is definitely some teeth now; it is deterring people from giving wrong affidavits Maneesh chhibber: There was a controversy about Narendra Modi not declaring his wife during previous elections This elections he has made it public that he is married Did you receive any complaint about this

elections the way we vote I am a strong supporter of using technology There is a need for changes in rules In India earlier there was the ballot box We changed it to EVMs Now to change from EVMs to

communication and technology and these things will soon come RUHI TIWARI: EVMs have faced controversy with the BJP claiming that the machines are not tamper-proof One of the biggest problems with the EVMs is that we are not physically able to see where the vote is going If I talk as a common man I feel empowered to put a paper in a machine which exactly tells me if I have pressed a button and whether the vote has gone to a figure Once we introduced VVPAT (voter-verified paper audit trail) wherein you can press a button and see the printout 999 per cent of the problems will disappear We hope to do this in the next parliamentary elections ALEESHA MATHARU: Are you investigating the claims of booth capturing and rigging in Mewat and Rewari Will action be taken on Yogendra Yadav’s claims There have been complaints Three people can say if these are genuine — our observers in every booth our booth level officers (BLOs) in police stations and agents of political parties SANDEEP SINGH: While going through the affidavits of candidates we found that 10 of them did not have bank accounts When we called these people — they are from prominent parties — they said that they had bank accounts but did not disclose it because they are part of moveable assets If they have wrongfully deliberately hidden something the other candidates should file a case KAUNAIN SHERIfF*: In case of names missing from electoral lists what is the way forward to bridge the gap I accept that it’s a problem We have employed BLOs who are normally permanent government employees either retired government servants or existing PSU officials If voters’ names are missing it means that supervision was slack A booth will not have more than 1200-1400 voters In a city like Delhi 1200 voters can be

happen only when every Indian citizen becomes part of our team There is a new system wherein anyone can give us information from Android or smartphones This has been implemented since April 21 There needs to be much more alertness more publicity and campaigning I don’t think this menace can be controlled 100 per cent but if we can control 70-80 per cent we’ll be better off D K SINGH: What do you do with the cash that is seized It goes to government reserves if nobody is claiming it The expenditure of Government of India per parliamentary seat is about Rs 10 crore which takes care of deployment training transfer posting etc The freebies recovered were worth Rs 250 crore but we can’t sell it because it is contraband We recovered Rs 270 crore in cash Our aim is to recover at least

our tolerance Why should we use such words Our neighbours are watching us I had a Japanese delegation yesterday and they said that they watch our news So it is not just 100 crore Indians the entire

Published: October 2 2017 7:23 pm Everton are 16th after 7 games (Source: Reuters) Top News “It is always about the money” said Everton manager Ronald Koeman when asked after Sunday’s 1-0 home loss to Burnley if his team’s poor start to the season was particularly disappointing given the recent recruitment of new players for around 140 million pounds ($1858 million) “It is so easy in this situation to speak about the money We have got a lot of money and we invest some money and it is always about the difference in spending from transfers” the Dutchman added Koeman’s frustration at the focus on the transfer market dealings of the club is understandable – the pre-season notion that Everton’s transfer activity made them contenders for a top six position always contained a strong degree of hype especially considering the investments of those above them But with Everton 16th after seven games hovering two points above the relegation zone with two wins to their name the line of questioning was fair Far from mounting a challenge to enter the elite so far Everton look to be going backwards and their acquisitions deserve some examination Around half of the money spent on new players came from the sale of the club’s top player striker Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for a reported 75 million pounds Yet the club did not spend any of their money on directly replacing Lukaku with a proven spearhead likely to bag 20 goals a season – instead spreading it around as they brought in nine new players It is a sign of how well those deals are working out that three of the most prominent of those players former England captain Wayne Rooney Dutch midfielder Davy Klaassen and Spanish attacker Sandro Ramirez started Sunday’s loss on the bench Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford looks a sound acquisition as does centre-half Michael Keane while Iceland’s Gylfi Sigurdsson has known qualities But given Sigurdsson Rooney and Klaassen all occupy a similar position and indeed Croatian Nikola Vlasic is another attacking midfielder the priorities are questionable SPURS EXAMPLE Koeman had talked about bringing in an out-and-out striker and there have been suggestions that Arsenal’s French forward Olivier Giroud could be a target in January But the use of resources echoes in many ways the way Tottenham used their windfall after the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in 2013 Spurs sold the Welshman for 85 million pounds and used that money to bring in seven players Most failed to make any sort of impact and only two are still with the club – creative midfielder Christian Eriksen and winger Erik Lamela who has been out for more than a year with a long-term injury Others such as Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches Spanish forward Roberto Soldado and Brazilian midfielder Paulinho struggled to make an impact Spurs have progressed well in recent years with a young English core to their team led by Harry Kane and that might be a route that Everton will eventually consider Dominic Calvert-Lewin is showing great promise in attack and another member of the England Under-20 World Cup winning team Ademola Lookman is a 19-year-old forward who has impressed many but has not been given many opportunities since arriving in January Tom Davies is a talented hard-working midfielder who has shown he is capable at Premier League level while defenders Mason Holgate and Jonjoe Kenny have promise Last season it looked as if Koeman was going the route of blooding young players and complimenting them with some astute signings It was an approach that vanished in the flurry of cash

Chaudhary moved Orissa High Court to seek the recall of the notice issued by it to the election commission last week to disclose the poll expenses of Patnaik The HC had issued a notice to the election commission following a writ petition filed by an RTI activist last year praying that the EC take action against alleged financial irregularities committed by Patnaik "The case by the Ganjam district collector violates the Representation of the People Act" Mohanty told the reporters on Tuesday The BJD rejected the allegation and in turn accused the BJP of attempting to tarnish Patnaik’s image "The man who was defeated in the election in 2014 from Hinjili assembly segment did not make any such complaint Now after three-and-half years of the elections the BJP has been making allegations" BJD

with photographs of the #100sareepact Started by two very innovative women to encourage bringing the sari back into the workplace this virtual platform is a space to celebrate memories and recount personal narratives of the unworn six yards languishing in our cupboards Participants in this pact are attempting to wear a 100 saris before December 2015 They post a picture with a line on how they feel wearing one From what I read of this experiment it’s amazing what dressing up does for your morale Their website has been visited 4000 times and at the last count over 1400 women had participated More than reclaiming the sari for office wear I say let’s start a pact to get it back on the red carpet A previous generation of Bollywood actors like Rekha and Hema Malini always showed up for award ceremonies in gorgeous Kanjeevarams or delicate chiffons They still do They wore what they thought looked good based on instinct rather than trends when the word ‘stylist’ didn’t even exist The look was one of unaffected ethereal beauty that may not make you swoon at its edgy brilliance but it didn’t make you cringe either Cut to Cannes 2015 when actor Sonam Kapoor made a startling appearance in a feathered voluminous gown best described as inexplicable Kapoor’s other fluffy princessy outfit to a press conference raised many eyebrows perhaps because it was right only for a teenager heading to a prom There’s a reason the red carpet revels in the theatrical and absurd — the idea is to show the actor to maximum advantage and hopefully generate hysterical attention from the international press Every look is thought out planned and executed in excruciating detail in accordance with this aim So even though a straight lined unfussy black gown might look better it lacks the requisite feisty brilliance to make heads turn Enter the plumes and feathers verging on pornographic itsy bitsy outfits and the Cleopatra wannabes In this scenario should our desi divas be appreciated for exerting themselves to be different And daring to risk the wrath of the metaphoric fashion police the all-too-observant public When one sees Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai polished to perfection in the Elie Saabs and Oscar De la Rentas more than trying to stand out it appears they’re trying very hard to fit in Elegant beauties they might be but their red carpet effort felt superficial and humourless How much nicer it would have been if they looked like they were just trying to have fun with their fashion By contrast actor Nandita Das in a simple red sari effortlessly cool and perfectly natural made a far greater impact It’s a good time for stylists to rethink the goddess approach to red carpet dressing in a year when the Cannes Film Festival is facing criticism for denying entry to women not wearing

is the second most populated city in the world beaten only by Tokyo But the similarity between the two cities ends there Delhi fails on almost every parameter by which a city’s quality of life is judged Since the Yamuna is highly polluted Delhi depends entirely on water released by neighbouring states — resulting in shortages that reach alarming proportions each summer Its water table remains among the most deficient in the country even though it does not have to meet irrigation demands A sewage system built nearly 80 years ago is now on its last legs even as open defecation along the

matter which party they belong to have always privileged political expediency over urban reform Concepts like segregation and recycling of waste solar photovoltaics on rooftops and the use of technology-based solutions are not part of their vocabulary Of greater importance to the 272 elected councillors 70 MLAs (when they are actually functioning as members of the assembly that is) and MPs is the chance to woo the six lakh new migrants who settle in Delhi each year Regularising unauthorised colonies also remains a priority for every city government always at the cost of bona fide taxpayers as well as land- and house-owners Although every conceivable civic nuisance has been described in vivid detail in the Delhi Municipal Corporation Act 1957 fines are never imposed on the grounds that they are too paltry to make any difference Municipal magistrates are neither seen nor heard The draconian penalties that made Singapore the world’s shining example of civic rectitude are extolled But Delhi’s corporations have continued for decades with a maximum fine of Rs 50 for piling building debris on colony streets to name just one of the terrible public nuisances But all this could change Unknown to most a Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill 2014 has finally been prepared It seeks to introduce an omnibus provision raising the existing paltry fines to Rs 10000 per transgression But the bill which makes eminent sense has a long way to go First it has to be passed by the Delhi assembly whenever its state of suspension is revoked or a new state legislature is elected Even if the new chief minister has the conviction and the numbers to push it through it would need presidential assent since a Central act is sought to be modified Even if the existing or new MLAs are persuaded to bat for the bill it remains to be seen whether the MHA finds it expedient to take it forward to Rashtrapati Bhavan Raising fines for creating a public nuisance is hardly germane to the MHA’s concerns Its control over Delhi affairs has its roots in a system that became obsolete more than half a century ago Back then Delhi was administered by a chief commissioner reporting directly to the MHA Although the city has grown into a megapolis the MHA’s mindset is based on command and control A single officer in charge of the Union Territories who does not necessarily have institutional conversance with city planning is the conduit through which the legislative matters of Delhi are processed Given this irrational situation it is of utmost importance that the municipal bodies are placed under the supervisory umbrella of the ministry of urban development which at least has domain knowledge of civic matters If swachhata is to become visible the capital must show the way by following examples of progressive city management One can only hope that if a Union minister for urban development has been convinced of the need to effect change the MHA will concede to his sensible and justified request The writer is a former secretary to the government of India and former chief secretary Delhi express@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

Mumbai on Thursday PTI Photo Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call on Thursday for businesses to participate in the creation of infrastructure that will make India’s 7500-kilometer coastline an “engine of growth” is certain to be widely welcomed Speaking at a summit in Mumbai he spoke of raising a staggering Rs 100000 crore to more than double India’s port capacity by 2025 — a precondition for creating the smooth logistical networks necessary to link the country’s businesses to the global economy There will have been those in the audience though who would have raised a sceptical brow at the PM’s promise that investors would enjoy “a pleasant journey” This year’s Economic Survey is only the latest of a series of official declarations calling for poor maritime infrastructure to be addressed on a war footing In 2014 for example Union Shipping and Ports Minister Nitin Gadkari promised eight new ports as well as rail connections to the 12 existing ones The same promises give or take a minor matter of detail are made on the National Investment Promotion Agency’s Invest India website — which it seems no one has bothered to update since 2012 In past years money has been frittered away on creating new ports where it might have been better spent improving efficiency at existing ones; the quality of services at many state-run facilities remains by international estimation dismal Ideas for the way forward have never been in short supply Gadkari’s promise of new ports connected by railways and roads is one building block Experts have suggested building small ports along the coast as well as reviving long-disused inland waterways to ease the load on highways and facilitate regional trade Efficiencies at ports business advocates have been saying could also be dramatically increased bringing down the time needed to handle freight and the cost of doing so These measures however need focused political action — and that the record shows has been in somewhat shorter supply than well-meaning speeches This points us in the direction of a deeper malaise For the most part India has been oddly reluctant to embrace its maritime potential: A reluctance that is all the more perplexing because of a heritage of oceanic trading that dates back to the Indus Valley civilisation and ancient networks that spanned from the South China Sea to Zanzibar Aden and Rome The reasons might lie in the dominance of a political culture drawn from the Indo-Gangetic plains The truth however is that no great industrial civilisation has been built without strong maritime foundations including naval power — and India can be no exception In decades to come Indian economic power cannot and will not improve unless it builds a vital maritime tradition and the infrastructure to sustain it News playlist: For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express AppBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: May 6 2017 9:43 pm Kashmiri Gate

Agartala was the second northeastern city to get on India’s metre-gauge railway map in the 1990s but only now can it look forward to joining the mainstream The first broad-gauge locomotive has rolled

excludes travellers without passports which means most Indians on the move For non-passport holders who cannot afford airfares the new rail link will be crucially important It marks the first step in a long overdue project deadlined for 2020 to connect the capitals of all the northeastern states to the rest of India which politically incorrectly is spoken of as the “mainland” Even before that by 2017 a line will be laid to Akhaura in Bangladesh which will offer through connectivity all the way to Chittagong In about the same time another line to the Bangladesh border through the South district of Tripura will be laid These lines will assume significance in the coming decades when international rail links through Asia are expected to play large roles in trade and tourism leaching traffic away from air and road networks The political impact could be even more valuable than the efficiencies offered by rail transport The railway system has served India as a great unifier binding together diverse cultures in a web of steel Now the fact that travellers to and from Agartala will not have to change lines at Lumding the old metre gauge terminus will reduce the psychological
