BJD MLA arrested for forcing engineer to do situps

first_imgBhubaneswar: Odisha Police on Monday arrested newly elected BJD MLA Saroj Kumar Meher for allegedly forcing a junior engineer from a tribal community to do sit-ups in public. The incident came to light in the beginning of the month when a purported video went viral showing the MLA asking the PWD engineer to do sit-ups in public. The incident took place in Patnagarh assembly segment on June 5. After statewide furore, Bolangir Collector Arindam Dakua had ordered an enquiry by the sub-collector to verify the allegations. The enquiry report stated that due to sub-standard road construction work, the Patnagarh MLA “punished” Jayakanta Sabar in public and also asked the engineer-in-charge to slap him. Meher was booked under different sections of the IPC based on the FIR filed by the engineer’s wife. Earlier in the day, the police picked up the MLA from a hotel in Nuapada and brought him to Bolangir for questioning. Meher will be produced at the court of the Additional District Judge, Bolangir, police said. The MLA had apologised for his action, contending that he was compelled to ask the engineer to do sit-ups to assuage public anger.last_img read more

UP cop under fire for posting TikTok videos in uniform

first_imgLucknow: A police constable is under fire for having posted Tik-Tok videos of himself in uniform. Two videos of Sub-Inspector Mohammad Arif, who is posted at the PGI police station in Lucknow, are going viral on the social media. In the first, the cop is seen dubsmashing the dialogue: “Yeh police station hai, tumhare baap ka ghar nahi. Jab tak baithne ko na kaha jaaye khade raho (This is a police station, not your father’s house. Don’t sit till you are asked to).” Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ In the second video, Arif is seen sitting on a chair, pointing towards his service revolver, which is kept on a table behind him, and saying: “Na policewalon ki dosti accchhi na dushmani (Neither friendship nor enmity of cops is good).” Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Lucknow Kalanidhi Naithani said: “We will seek an explanation from the cop for posting the video on the social media. If a cop is on duty and is wearing the uniform, discipline should be followed. General instructions are also being issued to policemen not to indulge in such indiscipline on social media platforms by posting videos in uniform.” This is not the first time a policeman is in trouble for making Tik-Tok videos on duty. In July, a policewoman from Gujarat was suspended after a video of her dancing to a song inside a police station went viral on the social media. Two Delhi Police woman constables also faced disciplinary action when a video of them singing on duty at a VVIP location went viral.last_img read more

True warriors dont reveal plans to enemies says Chief Fox

first_imgBy Jorge Barrera APTN National News OTTAWA–First Nations chiefs say a major showdown with Canada looms on the horizon.Talk of blockades and protest is once again in the air as the diplomatic efforts by the First Nations leadership through the Assembly of First Nations appear to have failed to make any headway with the Harper government to deal with longstanding grievances around land, natural resources and the fiscal relationship between Ottawa and First Nations communities.Instead, the federal government has introduced deep cuts to First Nations organizations and tribal councils and has pushed legislation First Nations leaders say first needed their consent because of its impact on Aboriginal and treaty rights.The growing frustration flowed to the threshold of the House of Commons chamber Tuesday after a group of First Nations chiefs from Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario scuffled with security guards as they tried to enter the domain of MPs.The chiefs involved say that was only the beginning, but what is to come is being held close to the chest.“True warriors don’t go out and tell their enemies, ‘This is what we are going to do in a battle,’” said Onion Lake Cree Nation Chief Wallace Fox, who was among the chiefs involved in the confrontation with Parliament Hill guards.Fox, who leads an oil-rich First Nation in Saskatchewan, has emerged as one of the leading voices in the latest upsurge in First Nations anger over the state of affairs across the country.Samson Cree Elder Cecil Napoose says he’s convinced prophecy foretold the emergence of a leader like Fox who issued the call that led Tuesday to a scuffle between Parliament Hill security guards and chiefs on the threshold of the House of Commons chamber.Napoose was there with Fox and Anishinabek Grand Council Chief Madahbee, Serpent River First Nation Chief Isadore Day and Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs Grand Chief Derek Nepinak when they tried to enter the chamber to deliver a message Prime Minister Stephen Harper that the time for direct action had arrived.“He is the leader to challenge the government that the time has come,” said Napoose, whose community is in Alberta. “He is also a spiritual leader…his people are his power.”Napoose isn’t the only one who believes prophecy is on the side of Fox. Fox admits that others have approached him this week at the Assembly of First Nations special chiefs assembly in Gatineau, Que., saying they also believe his emergence was foretold.Fox, however, says he is not interested in any political office beyond his role as leader of Onion Lake. He believes Ottawa’s cuts to First Nations political organizations will lead to their demise anyway.Fox says he follows the traditional ideas of leadership.“I have to speak on behalf of the people,” said Fox. “I also have to listen to their direction.”Fox said the decision to take the fight to the heart of Canada’s democracy came in response to the demands from First Nations youth who are frustrated with the state of things in their communities across the country.“The youth are very frustrated across the country,” he said. “We wanted to show that we are listening to them.”Fox said Tuesday’s actions are a foreshadowing of things to come and the House of Commons’ passing of Bil C-45, the Harper majority government’s omnibus bill proves Ottawa still doesn’t take First Nations interests seriously.“We are not going to stop,” he said. “We are going to continue this fight.”Other chiefs have also picked up the same call.“I think you will start to see more direct actions and raising the level of awareness in this manner,” said Day.“We’ll stand strong. We’ll fight where we need to fight. We’ll shove where we need to shove and we’ll get into the rooms that we need to regardless of the impediments put in our way,” said Nepinak.But it’s not just chiefs who are driving the agenda of confrontation. Powered in part by social media, youth and grassroots activists are also planning to launch protest campaigns. There was even chatter around launching a blockade on the Trans-Canada in Saskatchewan, but it has since turned into a planned march along the highway.On Facebook and Twitter, a grassroots movement under the name Idle No More has been picking up steam and there are now planned Dec. 10 day of actions across the country under its banner. Plans for the day include protests at city halls, legislative assemblies and outside corporate offices.The movement, founded by a group of women from Saskatchewan, initially began with a focus on the omnibus bill, but has since included the broader cause of Indigenous rights, said one of the founders Jessica Gordon, 34, from Saskatoon.“It is our time now. We have been restless, we have been waiting for a moment to show that we need to be heard and we have been looking for a way to come together,” said Gordon.Gordon said the movement is committed to peaceful means with the broader aims of sending a message to Ottawa and educating the Canadian public about First Nations issues.“We say keep it peaceful,” she said. “The pipe will be raised. When we do that, we know that no that there is no violence involved at all.”This isn’t the first time that First Nations leader and grassroots activists have prepared for protests against the Harper government. Much of the current rhetoric echoes what chiefs said in late 2006 and in 2007 when former Roseau River chief Terry Nelson authored a resolution calling for a day of action on June 29, 2007.The Conservatives reacted by threatening to cut funding to First Nations organizations and then-Aboriginal affairs minister Jim Prentice struck a deal with Nelson. The Harper government also created the Specific Claims Tribunal which was announced by Harper and former AFN national chief Phil Fontaine on Parliament Hill. Only the Tyendinaga Mohawks launched action that day, shutting down the highway between Ottawa and Toronto and blocking a CN rail-line for 12 hours. The action costs about $100 million in economic damage.This time around, however, the Aboriginal Affairs federal portfolio is held by a minister chiefs believe to be “weak” and the Conservatives can no longer threaten funding cuts, because the cuts have already been announced.Several chiefs told APTN National News that the cuts have been liberating and gives them a flexibility they didn’t have before.jbarrera@aptn.calast_img read more

US hits Ukraine separatists Russia officials with sanctions

first_imgWASHINGTON – The Trump administration said Friday it will punish 21 people and nine companies with sanctions over Russia’s actions in Ukraine and annexation of Crimea.Eleven of the individuals are Ukrainian pro-Russian separatists, the Treasury Department said. They hold titles such as minister of finance, trade, justice and security in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine.The United States is also targeting several Russian officials, including Andrey Cherezov, a deputy energy minister in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government. Cherezov is already under EU sanctions for his role in transferring turbines to Crimea. The turbines were sold to Russia by German electricity giant Siemens for use on Russian territory. Several companies involved in building infrastructure in Crimea are also being targeted by the latest sanctions.Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea in 2014 is not recognized by the United States. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has insisted that U.S. sanctions on Russia related to Crimea will remain in place indefinitely as long as Moscow refuses to withdraw from the territory.“The U.S. government is committed to maintaining the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and to targeting those who attempt to undermine the Minsk agreements,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, referring to a 2015 peace agreement reached in Minsk, Belarus, that has never been fully implemented.Russia’s government reacted to the sanctions by calling them “senseless” and arguing that previous sanctions have failed to produce results for Washington. The Russian Foreign Ministry said the U.S. actions would lead to financial losses for American businesses and that the United States was demonstrating “to the whole world their own helplessness.”“If U.S. authorities prefer to break economic and other ties with Russia, it is their right — just as we reserve the right to respond,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.The new U.S. sanctions came as Tillerson met Friday with Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko in Davos, Switzerland.___Associated Press writer Jim Heintz in Moscow contributed to this report.last_img read more

She then rushed over to her quarters to grab her documents, but the fire had already started spreading into her space as well.She continued that she ran out to full water and at the same time alert her neighbour.“It didn’t really had nobody around that I could have called. I called for the neighbour, but she live alone, so it didn’t had any male persons around to help me. I get so stupid I call for the other neighbour, and by then people start running coming… One of my son’s friend come and he started dipping gutter water, and then everybody started helping,” the woman recalled with tears in her eyes.Singh further told this publication that about two months back, one of her other grandsons had started a fire next to the gas bottle, burning two kitchen towels. She has since been cautioning the kids against playing with fire, and had warned their mother to keep a close eye on them.“I’m just confused… I work and build this, nobody don’t help me,” cried the woman who moved into the house only three years ago. At the time she was speaking with this publication, Singh had a towel wrapped around her back – that was the only belonging she is left with. Her neighbour had to provide her with clothing to change into, since she was showering at the time of the fire and rushed out wrapped in her towel.However, after dousing the blaze, fire fighters were able to salvage some of Singh’s important documents, like her transport, but that was all that was saved.Meanwhile, her daughter, Nicole Singh, related that she was at her place of business when a neighbour called and told her that the house was on fire. However, she thought the man was pulling a prank on her, until he put someone else on the phone to confirm the news. She said she immediately left to go home.“When I was coming, the fire truck was actually in front of me, and when I reach home, the place was almost burnt to the ground,” she recalled. The woman said she does not know exactly what happened, but her mother told her that the children were playing with explosives in the house.Luckily, none of the kids were injured in the fire. “I lost everything, every single thing that was in the place…Was a good house, we had everything inside,” said the daughter. read more

Brendan Rodgers issues Celtic warning

first_imgCeltic manager Brendan Rodgers has warned the club to make some quality signings or risk going backward.Brendan Rodgers wants Belgian defender Jason Denayer for a second spell on loan, and the club are refusing to give up in their transfer battle with Aston Villa to sign £2.7m rated John McGinn.Rodgers shared the frustration of supporters over the lack of new signing. He was speaking in a press conference before Wednesday’s Champions League third-round qualifier against AEK Athens. Daily Mail reports.He said: “My role in the summer was clear; to keep the players that were here. And, at the very minimum, replace the players we lost and where we might need improving.”“So we did the first part with Kieran (Tierney) and Tom (Rogic). Tom re-signed, which is great. We sign Odsonne (Edouard), which is a no-brainer.”“But there are still a few key areas where I want to bring in quality and, thus far, we haven’t completed on it.”Leicester City, Manchester UnitedMatch Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.‘Not a lot of players, but we needed quality. And that is something we haven’t got in the building yet to add to the class already here.”“You have to do that when you are in a strong position. I am not sure the club has been in a stronger position this summer than what they have been for quite some time.”Fearing a period of stagnation and regression due to lack of signing, the former Liverpool manager said: “Absolutely, 150 percent. We need to complete deals. It is as simple as that. One is identifying the players – which we do – and then get them over the line.”He admitted hoping to sign some players even after the English transfer deadline closes at 5 pm on Thursday; he added: ‘I would hope so.’last_img read more

Heat from global warming captured by the Pacific Ocean being transferred to

first_img(Phys.org)—A team of researchers working in the U.S. has found what they believe to be the answer to the question of what happened to the heat uptake in the Pacific Ocean due to global warming. In their paper published in Nature Geoscience, they suggest that it has been transferred to the Indian Ocean. Jérôme Vialard with Université Sorbonne offers a News & Views piece on the work done by the team in the same journal issue. Pacific trade winds stall global surface warming—for now Explore further Illustration of increased trade winds in the Pacific and Indian Oceans during the recent warming hiatus, which increased the inter-ocean pressure gradient and thus enhanced Indonesian throughflow. This resulted in an abrupt increase of Indian Ocean heat content. Credit: Sang-Ki Lee Citation: Heat from global warming captured by the Pacific Ocean being transferred to Indian Ocean (2015, May 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-05-global-captured-pacific-ocean-indian.html Journal information: Nature Geosciencecenter_img © 2015 Phys.org More information: Pacific origin of the abrupt increase in Indian Ocean heat content during the warming hiatus, Nature Geoscience (2015) DOI: 10.1038/ngeo2438AbstractGlobal mean surface warming has stalled since the end of the twentieth century, but the net radiation imbalance at the top of the atmosphere continues to suggest an increasingly warming planet. This apparent contradiction has been reconciled by an anomalous heat flux into the ocean, induced by a shift towards a La Niña-like state with cold sea surface temperatures in the eastern tropical Pacific over the past decade or so. A significant portion of the heat missing from the atmosphere is therefore expected to be stored in the Pacific Ocean. However, in situ hydrographic records indicate that Pacific Ocean heat content has been decreasing9. Here, we analyse observations along with simulations from a global ocean–sea ice model to track the pathway of heat. We find that the enhanced heat uptake by the Pacific Ocean has been compensated by an increased heat transport from the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean, carried by the Indonesian throughflow. As a result, Indian Ocean heat content has increased abruptly, which accounts for more than 70% of the global ocean heat gain in the upper 700 m during the past decade. We conclude that the Indian Ocean has become increasingly important in modulating global climate variability. Most scientists now agree that planet Earth is experiencing global warming, and has been for several decades—most also agree that the cause is an influx of carbon dioxide from human activities. But recent reports that global surface temperatures stopped rising over the past ten to fifteen years, has caused some to become skeptical of the whole idea, even as many scientists have suggested that the surface temperature plateau has been caused by the worlds’ oceans serving as a giant heat sink. The problem with that argument though, has been lack of data suggesting that the biggest of our oceans, the Pacific, has seen a temperature increase. In this new effort, the researchers believe they have found out why.In studying ocean temperature data provided by NOAA covering the past several decades, the researchers found that surface temperatures for the Pacific actually decreased over the past ten years. Recognizing that the heat had to go somewhere, the researchers input the data into models that have been built to show global temperatures, wind movement and other meteorological data. The model showed heat building up in the western Pacific and then being carried by easterly trade winds through the Indonesian archipelago. Upon closer inspection, the team found that surface temperatures (down to 700 meters) in the Indian Ocean had in fact increased to the point that it could account for approximately 70 percent of the heat taken up by the atmosphere over the past decade.The finding by the team appears to be both good and bad news. The good news is that it adds credence to global warming theories—the bad news is that it means that it is possible that at some point in the future all that heat in the ocean could be released back into the atmosphere, creating a sudden temperature spike which would almost assuredly cause massive worldwide problems for those of us that caused the problem in the first place.

June 23, 2008 – The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology last week published its final criteria for certification of inpatient (hospital-based) and emergency department electronic health record (EHR) products, as well as a special enterprise EHR certification for vendors that provide comprehensive ambulatory, inpatient, and emergency department EHRs that are interoperable. The first round of applications for certification under these new 2008 criteria will be accepted Aug. 1-14, with certified products expected to be announced in November. The final certification criteria, test scripts and associated program policy documents are published on the commission’s Web site, www.cchit.org.A town call teleconference for vendors interested in certification, especially those offering emergency department EHRs or seeking enterprise certification, is scheduled for Thursday, July 10 to introduce these new programs. Time and details of the teleconference will be available at www.cchit.org.The publication of these materials wraps up the commission’s development work on EHR certification for the CCHIT Certified 2008 program. The commission published the final ambulatory, child health and cardiovascular medicine criteria on May 20, and will be accepting certification applications in those domains from July 1-14.“We believe 08 certification adds value for all stakeholders as well as embracing new domains of care,” said Mark Leavitt, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the commission. “Ambulatory and inpatient EHRs must now be able to send and receive clinical summaries in the CCD format – making basic elements of health records, such as medications and allergies, interoperable and portable for the first time. And with new health IT adoption incentive programs – such as the CMS EHR Demonstration Project – now being launched, vendors serious about the EHR market will want to attain 08 certification.”The commission also announced the participants in the 2008 pilot tests. The pilot tests were designed to validate new or revised criteria, test steps, and testing tools against real products and to solicit vendor comment to fine tune the inspection process. The following companies qualified and participated:- Cerner Corp.- EDIMS LLC- Emergisoft Corp.- Epic Systems Corp.- Greenway Medical Technologies- NextGen Healthcare Information Systems Inc.- Wellsoft Corp.The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) is an independent, nonprofit organization that has been recognized by the federal government as an official certification body for electronic health record products. Its mission is to accelerate the adoption of health information technology by creating a credible, sustainable product certification program. The certification requirements are based on widely accepted industry standards and involve the work of hundreds of expert volunteers and input from a variety of stakeholders throughout the health care industry.

New trial begins this week in Costa Rica for security guard who

first_imgA new trial for the man accused of killing U.S. studentJustin Johnston in 2011 began this week in the province of Alajuela, northwest of the capital.Jorge Guevara, a Nicaraguan national who worked as hotel security guard, is on trial for the shooting death of 16-year-old U.S. tourist Justin Johnston after Guevara mistook him for an intruder on June 2, 2011.A criminal court previously had convicted Guevara and sentenced him to 15 years in prison plus a fine of $650,000 to be paid to Johnston’s family. But a Sentencing Appeals Court in San Ramón, Alajuela, last month ruled in favor of an appeal filed by Guevara’s attorney that claimed “the original trial court did not establish Guevara’s intent to kill Johnston.”Nine witnesses are scheduled to testify during the new trial, which will take place Sept 16-27.The night of the shooting, Johnston and a friend – who were part of a Spanish Club group from the United States – left a hotel in La Fortuna and returned late, after a group curfew. When they returned, the two students attempted to sneak into the hotel without being noticed, passing through an adjoining property with a barbed-wire fence, according to the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ).Guevara testified at trial that he fired a warning shot into the air, frightening the teenagers, who began running towards the hotel. He fired again in the direction of the students and fatally wounded Johnston.But Johnston’s parents say his classmate testified “there was no warning shot.”“Devastating, we received the news of Guevara being granted a new trial from the appeals court on Justin’s birthday. We were actually at the cemetery,” John Johnston, Justin’s father, told a local Fox News affiliate in McLouth, Kansas, in August. Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more
