Wasnt it an attempt to score brownie points

first_imgKolkata: The Trinamool Congress on Saturday hit back at outgoing Governor K N Tripathi for his comment that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s appeasement policy had adversely affected the social harmony of the state.Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee wondered why Tripathi did not say this earlier. Next Governor Jagdeep Dhankar will take oath on July 30. “Wasn’t it an attempt to score brownie points? That’s why we (TMC) had said before that the Raj Bhavan has turned into a BJP party office. This has now been proved to be true,” Chatterjee said in a sharp comment. Tripathi had differences of opinion with Banerjee on several occasions regarding various issues during his five-year tenure in the Raj Bhavan.

Any way this observation by him won’t glorify the chair of the Governor.” Tripathi, who has had several run-ins with the Chief Minister, said Banerjee has the vision and power to implement her decisions but needs to keep a check on her sentiments and exercise restraint.last_img read more

Feds explore buying Trans Mountain Morneaus decision coming Tuesday

first_imgFinance Minister Bill Morneau will announce as early as Tuesday morning where the government plans to go with Kinder Morgan to ensure the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion gets built.There are three options on the table, which include the government buying and building the expansion, then selling it once it’s complete; and buying it on an interim basis, then selling it to investors and leaving them to handle the construction.Morneau has already unveiled the third option: leaving original project architect Kinder Morgan to handle construction, but covering any cost overruns incurred as a result of political interference.The federal cabinet has been summoned to meet Tuesday morning, two hours earlier than usual, after which Morneau will discuss which of the three options the government has decided on.Kinder Morgan gave Ottawa until Thursday to convince it to proceed by settling down jittery investors who fear a court challenge from the B.C. government that would make the project too great a liability.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has put a lot of political capital on the project, pledging over and over again that the pipeline expansion is in the national interest and will be built one way or another.last_img read more

Morocco Ranks Worst Country in the World for Netflix Subscribers

By Zainab CalcuttawalaRabat – A new list published by Extremist, an entertainment news site, ranked Morocco as the “worst country” in the world for Netflix subscribers on Tuesday.The report ranked 184 countries based on the number of television shows and movies available to their citizens after they enroll in a monthly subscription for Netflix. The streaming service’s package for Morocco provides users access to a total of 157 shows and movies, which is the lowest in the world. At the top, Netflix’s American customers can view 5750 pieces of content on-demand. French Guinea, Benin, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Peru made up the rest of the countries in the top ten after the United States.Djibouti, Syria and the Palestinian territories were the only members of the Arab League not listed in the rankings. Iraq (56th), Lebanon (73rd), and Kuwait (73rd) were the top three Arab countries listed, while Sudan (177th), Comoros (179th) and Morocco (184th) trailed at the bottom.Netflix rolled out its service to 130 new countries around the world – including Morocco – at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada in early January. The company launched support for 17 new languages, including Arabic, during a keynote speech by CEO Reed Hastings.The company has previously commented that Netflix remains unavailable in Syria, China, North Korea, and Crimea due to complicated content ownership and copyright issues, according to indy100, a British entertainment news source. read more

Kitara The Electric Guitar Goes Digital

first_imgKitara’s tagline is “no strings attached.” It’s a strange new instrument that was drawing a big crowd in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center today. It’s a big plastic thing, shaped like a guitar with no head. There are little touch points (six per fret, corresponding to where the strings usually sit) all along the neck and an eight inch LCD in the body.The guitar comes loaded with hundreds of sounds, which the player can edit, manipulate, and combine–there are millions of sounds, according to the instrument’s manufacturer–you can also output MIDI sounds on the device.Pretty neat.

Awesome music created only from the sounds of Windows 98 and XP

first_imgThese video is pretty old–it was uploaded in 2007–so I have no idea how it escaped our attention for so long because it’s quite good. Using only audio from Windows 98 and Windows XP (Me never gets any respect…) YouTuber SomethingUnreal created the awesome track above. All the sounds were ripped directly from their respective operating system versions. They were played back in the 9 channel audio program seen in the video, obviously with lots of arranging.During the main sections you can barely pick out any specific Windows sounds (especially the guitar-like one) but if you listen closely and focus on individuals sounds then you’ll probably recognize more than a few. If you sit through to the end you’ll see some of the sound files in isolation as they were recorded from XP and Win 98.Using only sounds from Windows is a serious limitation for any track, but SomethingUnreal pulled this one off brilliantly. The Windows start sound in the middle strikes me a bit clunky but past that all I can say is that Microsoft needs to get thing in a Windows 8 commercial!via Geekosystemlast_img read more

Hadopi Reporters sans frontières réclame son abrogation

first_imgHadopi : Reporters sans frontières réclame son abrogationAlors que la Haute Autorité pour la diffusion des oeuvres et la protection des droits sur internet (Hadopi) vient de publier son premier bilan, l’association Reporters sans frontières (RSF) réitère  l’appel qu’elle avait déjà lancé. Elle réclame l’abrogation de la loi contre le téléchargement illégal.Au lendemain de la publication du premier bilan de la Hadopi (voir ici), Reporters sans frontières demande une nouvelle fois l’abrogation de la loi. Dans un communiqué publié sur son site Internet, l’association “regrette que la protection des données personnelles soit mal assurée par Hadopi, la Haute Autorité, à contre-courant, persiste dans sa politique, en dévoilant un premier bilan chiffré de la riposte graduée”. Un manquement pointé du doigt par la CNIL, qui a récemment dénoncé des lacunes en matière de sécurité (voir notre article).Réitérant son appel à abroger la loi Hadopi, RSF rappelle avoir inscrit la France à la liste des “pays sous surveillance” dans son dernier rapport sur les Ennemis d’Internet. Une inscription en grande partie due à l’adoption de la loi sur le téléchargement illégal, qui “outre ses lacunes et dysfonctionnements, (…) va à l’encontre des libertés fondamentales, en prévoyant la coupure de l’accès à Internet” déplore l’association.Une mesure très contestéeLa CNIL n’est pas la seule institution à avoir épinglé la riposte graduée. L’Organisation pour la sécurité et la coopération en Europe (OSCE) et l’ONU l’ont elles aussi pointée du doigt récemment. Dans un rapport publié en juin dernier, Frank Larue, rapporteur spécial pour la liberté d’expression des Nations unies, avait estimé que “couper l’accès Internet des utilisateurs, quelle que soit la justification fournie – et ceci inclut les lois concernant la violation des droits à la propriété intellectuelle – est une mesure disproportionnée”. Et d’ajouter : “Il s’agit d’une violation de l’article 19, paragraphe 3, du Pacte international relatif aux droits civils et politiques”. Comme le rappelle RSF dans son communiqué, la Haute Autorité a annoncé le 11 juillet dernier avoir envoyé 470.000 mails d’avertissement et 20.598 lettres de recommandation depuis son entrée en vigueur. Seuls dix abonnés sont concernés par la troisième étape de la riposte graduée, et devront donc se justifier devant la Hadopi. Les internautes pourront alors voir leur dossier transmis au parquet, risquant ainsi une amende maximum de 1.500 euros, et la suspension de leur abonnement Internet.Le 15 juillet 2011 à 16:40 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Lloris thinks Tottenham can compete without Harry Kane

first_imgNow that the extent of Harry Kane’s injury has been revealed, Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris is convinced that the Spurs can cope without their skipper.As we all know from last Sunday’s match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, striker Harry Kane left the pitch after a nasty tackle that made him sprain his ankle and will be out of competition for at least a full month.Manager Mauricio Pochettino already spoke about how unfortunate this new injury was, many Spurs fans are even afraid of how badly the squad may perform without their best player.But goalkeeper Hugo Lloris doesn’t think that people should be this negative, he is convinced that the squad has what it takes to compete against all the club that will face Tottenham in the upcoming calendar month and Harry Kane’s absence won’t affect them that much.The Spurs have a relatively easy calendar apart from the crucial Carabao Cup match against Chelsea next week, they will certainly miss Harry Kane for this match and his absence could bring the squad’s morale down for such a crucial game.But Lloris wanted to send a message to all the fans, and to the players as well because the club’s whole season depends in this month without their top player.Lloris: @SpursOfficial ready to fight for titles without Kane https://t.co/vyK5KJMe0h pic.twitter.com/bEoizH6yEo— Premier League News (@BarclaysLeague) January 15, 2019“We all know how important Harry is in our team, but he is not all of our team,” said Lloris via Four Four Two.“Football is about the team and every player is ready to help the team.”“In football, during the season, you have ups and downs and you have to always adapt to those and we will see about ‘H’. But I think everybody is ready and the most important thing is the mind: being ready to fight, being ready to help, being ready to compete. It is better when you have all your best players on the field, but that can happen here or it can happen at other clubs.”“Every season is different. Every player is different. With or without him, we will see how we do. The most important thing is to prepare for the games as well as we can.”“We will see for Fulham in the next game with or without Harry, with or without Son [Heung-min]. Throughout the whole team you have important players but the main thing is the collective.”“It is the only way to get trophies. It is not about one or two players, but, as you know, we all know the importance of ‘H’. We are still involved in all competitions, the main thing is to finish in the top four. We said this from the beginning and we don’t change our mind,” he concluded.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.Hugo Lloris reveals Tottenham’s new target after Man Utd defeat – and with Harry Kane injured https://t.co/hraysz10lw pic.twitter.com/izYtIn1yah— Cleansheet (@Cleansheet) January 14, 2019The upcoming Premier League for next weekend for Tottenham Hotspur will be a London Derby against Fulham, this will be the very first match without Kane.Then they have to play against Chelsea in that Carabao Cup semifinal that we mentioned, the Spurs will have to play against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup three days later, and then they will have three consecutive Premier League matches.The first two will be at home against Watford and Newcastle United, two relatively easy matches.The third Premier League match before the full month without Kane passes will also be at home against Leicester City, but the major concern for all the Spurs fans will be the next match exactly one month after Kane’s injury.As we all know, Tottenham will have to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday 13 February and the plan is to have Kane fully recovered by then.The Spurs are looking to get past the Round of 16 in the competition, but they are facing one of the most dangerous squads in European football this season.Not having their best player in top form will be complicated, but he will do everything in his power to be available.Los 1⃣1⃣ de hoy: Lloris (C), Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Kane.#VamosSpurs 👊 pic.twitter.com/y4GMmEsHQY— Tottenham Hotspur (@Spurs_ES) January 13, 2019How do you think Tottenham will do without Harry Kane in the next month?

Sled Dogs Get Their Final PreRace Check Up Before The 32nd Yukon

first_imgSled dogs signed up to run in this year’s Yukon Quest got their final pre-race check up Saturday. (Photo by Emily Schwing KUAC)Download AudioOver the weekend, veterinarians looked over the sled dogs that will run the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race in both Fairbanks and Whitehorse. They wanted to make sure the dogs were healthy, well-fed and ready to race on the 1000 mile trail.Inside a large warehouse, veterinarian Nina Hansen checks the paws and teeth and listens to the heart beats of sled dogs.“I look at their eyes make sure their eyes are bright and clear,” she explained. “I look at their mucus membranes you can get a good idea of how well hydrated a dog is by looking at their mucus membranes,” Hansen said. “I look at their teeth. They should have clean teeth that are in good shape. If there’s a lot of dental disease, just like in people that can lead to problems in the rest of the body and then I will assesse body condition after that and I just run my hands along their spine, feel their ribs, feel their muscles in general,” she said.A small reddish-brown dog stood nearby.  This dog didn’t have a radio frequency microchip, so Hansen reached for a needle and inserted one in the skin just behind the dog’s ear.“So, it’s about the size of a grain of rice,” she said. “It’s a passive identification when you run this scanner over it, it will come up with a unique number that only this dog has so we use this to identify them.”This is Hansen’s first year as the Yukon Quest Head Veterinarian, but she’s worked on the race for the last six years. For the most part, these dogs are calm, alert and many of them wag their tails. Hansen isn’t surprised.“When I was in small animal practice, which I did for three years, there was not a day that went by that a dog did not bite me,” she laughed, “but I have been working with sled dogs for seven years now and I have been bit one time by a sled dog and I have looked at thousands of sled dogs,” she said. “Sled dogs are very well socialized, they’re great to work with they’re great with people they’re used to being handled, they’re used to being around people,” Hansen said.A group of black and orange dogs surround us.  They belong to four-time Yukon Quest Champion Lance Mackey.“Mine are very personable, very opinionated, they always have something to say it seems like,” he said of his dogs.Mackey last ran the race in 2013, but he did not finish that year. He says this year, only one of his dogs is returning as a veteran. The others are young two-year olds he hopes to develop over the coming years.“I want to race them like they are five-year olds, because I feel I have something to prove because of my race season in the last few years,” he said.The fiercely competitive Mackey is one of four returning champions. As well, he’ll face off against a few big names who’ve never raced the Quest – that includes Ray Redington, Junior.“Don’t count me out. I want my two minutes,” Redington said.Redington may be a rookie to the Quest, but he’s run 13 Iditarods, finishing in top ten four times. He decided to sign up after the race committee decreased the mandatory layover at the midway point in Dawson City from 36 to 24 hours this year. “I like the 24 versus the 36, I think the race is going to be definitely ran faster if we have good trail conditions because of that,” he said.This year, mushers are also required to take two additional six-hour layovers at a checkpoint of their choosing in the first and last thirds of the race.  Like most of the sled dogs signed up , Redington’s team checked out well. He says they’ve been in good shape all season.  “Everyday after runs, they’re stretched out. When you’re taking their booties off, we’re going through their feet to make sure everything is good and if they have any problems then you work on it,” he said.… And most of the musher’s set to race are confident their teams will hold up on the 1000 mile trail from Whitehorse.last_img read more

Bangladesh seeks US sanction on perpetrators behind Rohingya persecution

first_imgForeign minister A K Abdul Momen (R) with US senator Christopher Murphy. Photo: CollectedVisiting Bangladesh foreign minister, AK Abdul Momen, on Tuesday met with US senator Christopher Murphy and USAID administrator ambassador Mark Green, says a press statement.“In his meeting with senator Christopher Murphy, Bangladesh minister Momen suggested that it would be effective if both houses of the US Congress could pass resolution with clauses on sanctions to perpetrators and entities in Myanmar who persecuted the minority Rohingyas and grossly violated human rights,” the press statement reads.Momen told the US politicians that the Myanmar authorities took back some Rohingyas in the 1990s when they were isolated internationally.“However, this time they have not taken the required measures to implement the agreements to repatriate the Rohingyas to Myanmar. Senator Murphy thanked the Bangladesh minister for his helpful briefings and assured to remain beside Bangladesh in dealing with this crisis,” it added.At the meeting with the USAID administrator, Bangladesh foreign minister thanked the USA for standing beside the Rohingyas with material help as well as political support.He also said, “The problem was created by Myanmar and the solution lies with Myanmar too.“It is extremely critical to create international pressure on the Myanmar military so that they stop persecution on the Rohingyas and create conducive environment to facilitate the latter’s safe return.”He urged upon the US administration to solicit support on Rohingya issues from the countries who maintain close economic and commercial ties with Myanmar and together create pressure on Myanmar to take back its nationals from Bangladesh as per agreements signed.Ambassador Mark Green then reassured Momen of a peaceful resolution to the Rohingya issue is not just Bangladesh’s concern rather it is a responsibility of the global community.He said, “USAID will continue financial support to the Rohingyas and the host community. He thanked the Government of Bangladesh for its generosity and compassion.”Momen briefed ambassador Green about relocation of one lac Rohingyas from Cox’s Bazar to Bhashanchar, an island which Bangladesh made habitable at own expense.He also said the Rohingyas will have livelihood opportunities in Bhashanchar.Bangladesh Ambassador to the USA Mohammad Ziauddin accompanied the foreign minister during the meetings.last_img read more

Book to highlight beauty of Victoria Memorial garden

first_imgKolkata: To shatter the common belief that the sprawling garden of Victoria Memorial is not merely a hangout spot, the memorial perhaps for the first time in its history is bringing out a publication with a compilation of the flora and fauna that beautify its 64-acre garden.The book will also highlight the method adopted for maintenance of the garden and the water body on the memorial campus. “We want to project the Victoria Memorial highlighting the inclusivity we nurture. We had written to the West Bengal Biodiversity Board to undertake a study of the animals, birds, reptiles and the fishes present in the garden and the water body in the memorial. They have consented and soon a joint meeting will be held to finalise the matter,” said Jayanta Sengupta, curator and secretary of Victoria Memorial.

The Cuban Royal Palm, the Canon Ball tree from the Amazon rainforest and the breadfruit tree from the Pacific come under this category. Talking about the maintenance of the garden Sengupta said the they have procured a composting machine where waste matter is recycled and used as manure for the garden. The falling leaves of the trees and the food waste from the canteen are converted to manure and used for the upkeep of the garden. “People will be amazed to know that when the memorial was established in the year 1921 there was no grass on the campus. It needed a lot of effort to make such an attractive garden,” he added. Out of 38 lakh annual visitors at the Victoria Memorial, 18 lakh avail tickets for the garden.last_img read more
