NEW DELHI: In order to grab power, CM Arvind Kejriwal is offending the religious sentiments of the Hindus, said Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari. “Arvind Kejriwal has been insulting the Hindus and the symbol of Hinduism. Today, in order to grab power, he is offending our religious sentiments of the Hindus. The people will give a befitting reply to these anti-Hindu elements in the forthcoming elections. He said that this act of Kejriwal is also a violation of the Model Code of Conduct. Such mischievous acts of Kejriwal and his hate for Hinduism will prove costly to him,” said Tiwari.

Even before this by tweeting the photo of a cow and our Swastik Symbol he tried to offend our religious sentiments. On this matter Delhi’s LOP Vijender Gupta met the Chief Electoral Officer on Saturday on the same matter. Meanwhile, a Supreme Court lawyer on Saturday filed a complaint against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal over a tweet posted by him recently. In his complaint to Delhi police commissioner Amulya Patnaik, advocate Alakh Alok Shrivastava alleged that CM Kejriwal with his tweet posted on March 20 hurt the religious sentiments of Hindu community. “Around 10:13 pm on March 20, the accused posted a tweet from his official Twitter handle depicting a broom chasing away a ‘Hindu Swastika’ symbol. This is an extremely sacred symbol in Hinduism and is worshipped by many Hindus,” the complaint read. The lawyer alleged that the tweet was published online to promote disharmony, enmity, hatred and ill-will among different religious groups. read more
4 November 2010The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, today strongly condemned this week’s attacks on religious communities in Iraq and urged the Iraqi Government to do more to protect civilians in an effort to prevent a “deadly” upsurge in sectarian violence. The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, today strongly condemned this week’s attacks on religious communities in Iraq and urged the Iraqi Government to do more to protect civilians in an effort to prevent a “deadly” upsurge in sectarian violence. The High Commissioner’s call follows yesterday’s condemnation by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the recent spate of attacks, in which scores of civilians lost their lives and hundreds more were wounded. On Tuesday, 68 civilians were killed and hundreds wounded in a series of explosions in at least ten mostly Shi’a neighborhoods in Baghdad, while at least 50 civilians were killed and dozens of others wounded on Sunday during the attempted rescue of worshippers who had been taken hostage in a Catholic Church. While noting that bringing the perpetrators to justice is essential, but not easy in a country still recovering from years of conflict and violence, Pillay urged the Iraqi Government to take immediate concrete measures to provide better protection for vulnerable groups and minorities. “I realize that dealing with the out-and-out terrorist groups is not an easy task. However, I believe much more could be done to protect groups which are clearly targets and who are particularly vulnerable,” Pillay said. “And it needs to be made clear to everyone in Iraq that sectarian attacks against any group are unacceptable and will be dealt with severely, under the law, no matter who is responsible.” The High Commissioner added that Iraqi authorities should ensure that religious sites and other likely targets are adequately protected, and reach out and demonstrate to different communities that their safety is of paramount concern to the Government. “As part of this process, when attacks do occur, the authorities should launch thorough investigations, conduct prosecutions and promptly provide redress to victims, as well as constantly reviewing and improving the steps they are taking to prevent further attacks,” Pillay said. Speaking after the Sunday attacks, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Iraq, Ad Melkert, said that to ensure the country’s ability to protect its citizens, every effort should be exerted by Iraqi leaders to expedite agreement on formation of the government and other outstanding issues. read more
This Monday, July 25, 2016, photo, shows real estate signs at a new home community in Edmond, Okla. On Tuesday, Aug. 16, the Commerce Department reports on construction of new homes in July. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki) WASHINGTON – Apartment construction in the Northeast fueled a jump in home building in July as the pace of housing starts nationwide reached the strongest pace in six months.The rate of overall construction rose 2.1 per cent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.21 million from 1.19 million in June, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. That was the highest level since February. Most of the gain came from an 8.3 per cent acceleration in the construction of multi-family buildings. Construction of single-family houses edged up just 0.3 per cent.“Continued recovery in housing will be supported by historically low mortgage rates, coupled with a firming labour market that has begun to spur on wage gains for workers,” said Neil Shankar, an economist at TD Bank.Construction climbed 15.3 per cent in the Northeast. The Midwest and South reported smaller gains, while starts slipped in the West.Still, future gains may be limited because current housing starts are outpacing permits to build in the future. Authorized permits slipped 0.1 per cent in July to an annual rate of 1.15 million.Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, expects permits to increase in response to the gains in housing starts.“The gap between the sales and permits numbers is not unprecedented, but it is wide, and we have to expect permits to rebound strongly in the near future,” Shepherdson said.For now, more Americans are upgrading to newly built single-family houses. Ground breakings for houses have shot up 10.6 per cent year-to-date, while starts for apartment buildings have dipped after a torrid pace in recent years to accommodate an increase in renters.Housing starts remain below their recent 25-year average of roughly 1.3 million, even after having rebounded from the depths of the housing crash that triggered the Great Recession nearly nine years ago.Mortgage rates at historic lows and a strong job market have bolstered real estate this year. Sales of new homes are at their strongest pace since early 2008. And existing homes are selling at their best rate since early 2007 as more buyers are finalizing deals despite the lack of available homes for sale.Homebuilders appear optimistic that sales will continue to rise. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index released last week rose two points to 60 following a downwardly revised reading of 58 in July. Readings above 50 indicate more builders view sales conditions as good rather than poor. by Josh Boak, The Associated Press Posted Aug 16, 2016 6:33 am MDT Last Updated Aug 16, 2016 at 8:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email US home construction climbed to a 6-month high in July read more
Dan Hughes wants you to know that climate change is real, it’s serious and it impacts people.In an area of Canada’s North called Old Crow Flats, the impacts are startling with lakes draining and massive erosion along riverbanks and lakeshores.“I want to let everyone else know what’s going on because most of the population doesn’t see these large changes in the middle of the Arctic unless it’s headline news,” the Masters student said.“They don’t see these large changes that also influence First Nations communities, which is what we should be talking about.”Hughes is studying how changes in water chemistry and flow are transforming the landscape of Old Crow Flats, a lake-rich permafrost area of the Yukon.The Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation people are seeing their fishing, hunting and living environments rapidly altered, he said.Hughes explains his work in A Changing Arctic, a 60-second video, he created and submitted to the NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada) Science, Action! Competition.Hughes’ entry, along with three others submitted by Brock students, made it into the Top 40 in the national student research contest and is in the race to make the finals.The 25 videos with the most views on YouTube between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28 will proceed to the final round, where a panel of judges will select the winners.The focus of Hughes’ research — inspired by the work of his supervisor Kevin Turner, assistant professor in the Department of Geography and Tourism Studies — remains on Northern Canada because of the area’s ability to act as a ‘canary in a coal mine’ for climate change.Increasing temperatures and fluctuating precipitation levels in the north are more pronounced than in other parts of the country.Rising temperatures result in permafrost thawing at a greater and faster rate. When this occurs, carbon that’s trapped in the permafrost is released into the water and surrounding environment, changing the water’s chemistry and potentially entering oceans or the atmosphere, perpetuating climate change.Thawing permafrost can also cause erosion on the banks of waterways.The shorelines of Old Crow Flats’ rivers are eroding because warmer temperatures have weakened the permafrost, causing the bank material to tumble into the waters.Hughes said because Old Crow Flats is so isolated, landscape impacts are mainly from global climate changes rather than direct human impact.“Where I live near Brock, you see the landscape impacts that are more influenced by human activity: urbanization, dumps, pollution and others,” he said.“Whereas in the Arctic where I’m working, you’re seeing the natural influence of climate changes: the big landscape changes, the sediment slumps along rivers and lakes, and lakes that drain in a few days.”The 15 NSERC competition finalists will be announced no later than April 5.Editor’s Note: This is the third in a series of four stories profiling the four Brock University students in the running to win the NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada) Science, Action! competition. All four videos are available for viewing on a recent article published in The Brock News. read more
Ohio State senior left tackle Jamarco Jones warms up prior to the Buckeyes’ 38-7 win versus Army on Sept. 16 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorFormer Ohio State left tackle Jamarco Jones was selected in the fifth round with the No. 168 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks.Jones started 27 consecutive games during his junior and senior seasons. He was recognized as a First-team All-Big Ten member last season, and second-team in 2016. Jones played in 50 games, including the 2014 national championship win against Oregon, in his four seasons as a Buckeye.Jones helped Ohio State rank 17th in the country with 243.2 rushing yards per game, while also earning the eighth-most yards per rush at 5.78 yards per carry.Ohio State also gave up the ninth-fewest tackles for loss per game during last season (4.14).Jones did not fare well at the NFL combine. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound lineman finished with the third-slowest 40-yard dash (5.50 seconds) among offensive lineman, and the second-slowest 20-yard shuttle (4.99 seconds).Seattle gave up 43 sacks, the 11th most in the NFL, even with one of the more elusive quarterbacks in the league, Russell Wilson, under center.Jones and the Seahawks open up the 2018 season on Sept. 9 against the Denver Broncos. read more

Seconds after Guy Hall pulled into a parking lot full of Subarus at KTOO in Juneau on Monday, five reporters were gawking at his sleek, red Tesla Model S.Download Audio:Hall is the president of the Sacramento Electric Vehicle Association. He spent 17 days driving from the California-Mexico border to Fairbanks, and now he’s on the return leg. Reporter Jeremy Hsieh hops in for a ride.Guy Hall poses with a battery cell in hand. His Tesla Model S has more than 7,000 of the cells built into the undercarriage. It has a range of about 265 miles.Photo by Jeremy Hsieh/KTOO.“I’m driving Guy Hall’s Tesla. He’s a retired Hewlett-Packard research and development guy and an electric car evangelist. He’s got two more modest electric cars at home in Sacramento: a Nissan Leaf and a Chevy Volt,” Hsieh says.But it’s the sporty, high-end Tesla that made the 3,400 mile journey north and has the wow factor.“Punch it,” Hall says.“Whoa. Wow. It’s pretty fun,” Hsieh says. “OK, I think I’ve got the Tesla grin. Alright, I’ve got to slow down so I don’t get pulled over.”“I won’t say what the speed is that we saw that go up to, but it was worthy of a ticket-me-red color car,” Hall says.There’s no fuel to pump, no engine to rev, no gears to shift, no transmission. Pressing on the accelerator translates into electrons moving at the speed of light to the electric motor driving the rear wheels.Where you’d expect an engine compartment up front is a second trunk. Hall calls it “the frunk.” Another big difference is at start up.“There you go, you’re now in drive. Do you hear that?” Hall says.The windshield wiper makes more noise than the drivetrain. Almost no sound compared to a gas car.Inside, a big touch screen panel in the center console breaks up the leather. It has controls for adjusting the suspension, handling, regenerative braking system, sunroof and more.The battery is a heavy, flat panel that makes up much of the undercarriage. Its shape evenly distributes the weight and the location keeps the center of gravity low; that’s good for handling. The battery is actually made up of a series of more than 7,000 cells, each about the size and shape of a shotgun shell.Hall says besides spreading the word, his trip was about seeing if an electric vehicle could even make it. His battery has a range of about 265 miles and charging stations are rare.“But I was able to determine you can do it. There’s sources of electricity everywhere you go,” Hall says.According to Tesla, a full charge would take more than 3 days from a standard 110-volt outlet. It takes about 9 hours through a less common 240-volt outlet. Beefy appliances like laundry dryers and water heaters use those in the house. Electric car owners get them installed in their garages.The 240-volt outlet is also a common hookup for RVs. So on the road, Hall charged up at RV parks. He says he even traded rides for some charging time at industrial shops and garages along the way.“I wanted to set a baseline of how long it takes to get from the Mexican border up to Fairbanks. And once that’s set, now others can try to beat it. And as someone gets a new record for it, trophy will go on to them and it’ll rotate around,” Hall says.Right now, the only public charging station on Juneau’s isolated road system is at Alaska Electric Light & Power. But more are coming. The Juneau Economic Development Council helped raise $50,000 in grant money to build infrastructure supporting electric vehicles.The council’s Zach Wilkinson says five two-outlet electric vehicle chargers are on their way to Juneau thanks to the grant. They’ll be installed at the Eaglecrest Ski Area, downtown parking garage, new Mendenhall Valley library that’s under construction, University of Alaska Southeast and Eagle Beach State Recreation Area.And Wilkinson says there’s money to buy a few more single-outlet chargers for local businesses willing to pay the installation cost.“Part of what we’re aiming for is to lead the nation in public charging stations per capita,” Wilkinson says.By his math, Juneau would only need 14 outlets. Wilkinson says some may be in place and available for public use before the end of the year.Duff Mitchell is the vice president of the startup Juneau Hydropower, one of the local groups that chipped in for the grant. He’s been driving a Nissan Leaf since October and says electric cars are a great fit for Juneau.“We don’t have range anxiety, it’s a lot cheaper and more effective to use electricity that’s home grown, sustainable, rather than importing other fuel sources into our community,” Mitchell says. “It leaves those dollars here, and also, leaves more money in a person’s pocketbook at the end of the month if they’re using electricity for their transportation needs.”“I call it beer math-it costs me less than a 12-pack of beer to drive my car all month.”The vehicles can be pricey. Teslas start around $71,000, the Nissan Leaf starts at $29,000 and the Chevy Volt at $34,000, though the IRS offers up to $7,500 in tax credits for buying an electric vehicle.Mitchell and Wilkinson estimate there are about 20 electric cars in town now. read more
After a spending freeze by the governor and multiple attempts by the legislative minority to place it back into the state’s general fund, the Susitna-Watana Hydro Project team will now be allowed to spend over six million dollars it has left from previous years.Download AudioLast week, a memorandum from the state’s Office of Management and Budget lifted the spending freeze on the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project instituted by Governor Bill Walker in December. Walker’s order had halted new spending on six projects, including the proposed 735-foot-high dam on the Susitna River.At the time of the administrative order, the Alaska Energy Authority, the state corporation in charge of Susitna-Watana, said it had around $30 million remaining from previous appropriations. Of that, $6.6 million was unencumbered. The rest was already committed to studies for the proposed megaproject.Emily Ford, spokeswoman for AEA, says, now that the funds have been freed up, the pre-licensing study process will continue through the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.“We’re just going to be picking up where we left off as part of this Initial Study Report Process. We essentially pushed a big pause button in the middle of that effort by filing for a license abeyance with FERC. So next, what we’ll do is lift that abeyance and resume with the FERC schedule.”The money that AEA is once-again allowed to spend on Susitna-Watana represents just over three percent of total allocation to the current project proposal to date. Emily Ford says that means there are not currently plans for the type of large-scale research that took place in the Susitna Valley over the last two years.“The focus and the goal is to preserve the investment that the state’s already made in the project by either wrapping up studies that are near completion or synthesizing data that was collected in the field and making sure that it’s in a usable format.”After that, it will be up to the legislature and the governor to determine whether additional funds go to Susitna-Watana. AEA estimates the project’s cost at over $5.5 billion, and Emily Ford says that the agency plans to act based on the funding that the state’s fiscal reality allows.On Thursday, the Talkeetna-based Susitna River Coalition, a group opposed to Susitna-Watana, issued a statement expressing disappointment with Governor Walker’s decision. The Coalition cites criticism by federal agencies, including the National Marine Fisheries Service, of studies conducted as part of the early phases of the project. Coalition board member Becky Long believes the decision runs contrary to Governor Walker’s stated policy goals, and that Susitna-Watana, if built, would be costly beyond the price tag for construction.“We have to look at future litigation costs, future mitigation costs, and, in general, the governor has been talking up a lot about fiscal responsibility and fish-first policies. And we think this goes against those policies.”Becky Long says the Susitna River Coalition is concerned that AEA may not be able to finish the studies already underway without cutting corners, which could lead to litigation.Now that the fiscal picture has, at least temporarily, cleared, AEA plans to establish a new schedule with federal regulators. That schedule will include public meetings on the Initial Study Report completed last year. AEA’s Emily Ford says those meetings will likely occur in late fall of this year. read more

Bangladesh Nationalist Party The BNP’s labour wing Jatiyatabadi Sramik Dalon Tuesday alleged that it could neither hold a workers’ meeting nor take out a rally in the city marking the May Day, reports UNB.BNP leader Nazrul Islam Khan said they were denied permission for holding the May Day programme by the Dhaka metropolitan police (DMP).Khan, also a noted labour leader and BNP standing committee member, said they will lodge a complaint with the International Trade Union (ITU) about depriving the pro-BNP workers of their right to bring out a rally on the May Day.”Having failed to get permission for holding a workers’ rally at Suhrawardy Udyan, we yesterday (Monday) sought permission from the DMP for bringing out a rally on International Workers’ Day. The police informed us that we won’t be allowed to stage any worker’s rally,” said Sramik Dal president Anwar Hossain.He came up with the allegation at a press conference at the BNP’s Nayapaltan central office.Despite being a registered organisation, Anwar said, the police did not permit them to hold a rally on the May Day. “It has demonstrated the government’s autocratic and undemocratic attitude. We strongly condemn and pretest the unfair act of police.”Speaking at the press meet, Nazrul Islam Khan said Bangladesh promised to ensure workers’ freedom of expression as a member of the International Labour Organisation (ILO).”Sramik Dal is the member of the International Trade Union. We used to inform them about our programmes. We’ll now inform them as to why we couldn’t hold our programmes on the May Day,” he said.The BNP leader said the government is showing an unfair and hostile attitude towards Sramik Dal as it is the associate body of the BNP.He said the denial of police permission for taking out a rally by Sramik Dal on the International Workers’ Day has once again justified the German-based research organisation’s report that the government has turned autocrat.1 May, the International Workers’ Day, was observed in Bangladesh as elsewhere across the world on Tuesday amid various programmes highlighting the worker’s rights and safety at workplaces. read more
April 24, 2015 — Volpara Solutions announced the installation of VolparaDensity in Belgium, marking the 31st country where the system has been implemented. New installations were also recently completed in Canada, Turkey, Korea, Japan and the United Kingdom.”We’ve been using Volpara at our imaging clinic for the past nine months and we have full confidence in Volpara’s automated, volumetric density assessments of our patients’ mammograms. My staff has been very pleased with Volpara’s ease of installation and simplicity of operation,” noted Francis Cuigniez, M.D., of Ghent, Belgium. “Additionally, Volpara has been integrated with our RIS [radiology information system] to automatically include breast density scores into the results report that is shared with patients and their referring physicians.”According to Cuigniez, who participates in the official screening program organized by the Flemish Health System offering free mammograms on a biennial basis, “we counsel patients whose breast density scores fall within the ACR [American College of Radiology] Breast Density Categories of “C” and “D” about their increased risk of breast cancer and recommend they talk with their doctors about the possible need for additional imaging, such as ultrasound. In the future, I believe it’s conceivable that adjunctive ultrasound reimbursement will only be approved for patients who have very dense breasts. Having Volpara installed helps us to establish future billing profiles and justifications for additional imaging procedures.”VolparaDensity helps radiologists objectively assess density from both digital mammography and tomosynthesis images to help doctors evaluate who might benefit from additional screening. Highly correlated to breast magnetic resonance (MR) assessments, VolparaDensity automatically generates an objective measurement of volumetric breast density correlated to the ACR breast composition categories.
