Cong. will form the next govt. in Rajasthan: Pilot

first_imgRajasthan Congress president Sachin Pilot on Thursday said the party will come to power in the State after the Assembly elections later this year, while accusing Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje of ignoring people’s plight. He was speaking at the Congress’s ‘Sankalp Rally’ in Dungarpur district’s Sagwara area. Congress president Rahul Gandhi also addressed the rally. “Congress is going to form the government in Rajasthan and you will feel that it is your own government,” Mr. Pilot said. ‘CM nowhere to be seen’Training his guns at Ms. Raje, he said the Chief Minister was nowhere to be seen when children died due to malnutrition near Udaipur, infants died in Banswara and farmers committed suicide. He alleged that law and order situation in Rajasthan had deteriorated during her tenure. “Every day 8-10 rapes take place, atrocities against Dalits and others take place and the crime rate has also grown in Rajasthan,” the Congress leader said. Mr. Pilot claimed that Ms. Raje’s pre-poll tour, ‘Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra’, had proved to be a flop with the High Court banning the use of public money for it and poor public response. “People have understood her (Raje). She had a golden opportunity (to serve the people) as her party (BJP) had got a huge mandate (in the last elections) but she betrayed the people,” he said.Mr. Pilot also targeted the Chief Minister over her claim that ₹17,000 crore were spent in Jhalawar district, her constituency, during her tenure. The Chief Minister should tell where the ₹17,000 crore went if the collector feels that the district is backward, he said.last_img read more

Hong Kong selects To The Fore as Oscar contender

first_imgLos Angeles, Sep 22 (PTI) Hong Kong has selected sports action drama “To The Fore” as its contender for the foreign-language Academy Awards race. The film, directed Dante Lam, popular for helming crime thrillers, stars Eddie Choi, Shawn Dou and Wang Luo Dan, reported Variety. “To The Fore” was chosen by the selection committee of the Hong Kong Film Producers Association, which said it had also shortlisted Ringo Lams “Wild City”, Mabel Cheungs “Three Cities” and Lau Ho-leungs “Two Thumbs Up”.

The Wintersmiths Ice Baller

first_img How to Make a Whiskey Sour 5 Classic Whiskey Cocktails You Should Know How to Make Live Out Your Westworld Dreams at Casteel Creek Retreat How to Make a Rye Whiskey Smash Editors’ Recommendations The Best Steakhouse Whiskey Collections in the United States There are dozens of different ways to serve up a glass of whiskey — on the rocks, neat, on some whiskey stones, or even on those nifty little “balls of steel.” Each method has its merits, but if you enjoy just a slight bit of dilution (just a tiny bit!), we highly recommend you snag yourself an ice baller. Here’s why:Whiskey stones and steel balls work just fine for cooling down your drink, but they don’t give you that slight bit of dilution that most of us find desirable. They’re essentially just a cool-looking way to refrigerate your liquor without actually putting it in the fridge.The other method is to go the old-fashioned route and simply pour your whiskey (or scotch, or whatever) over some regular ice cubes. This tried-and-true technique will simultaneously cool and dilute your hooch, but more often than not, regular rocks will melt too quickly and make it too watery.If you find yourself struggling to find that perfect Goldilocks level of dilution, ice balls are the answer. Because they’ve got less surface area than a set of separate cubes, they melt more gradually, leaving you with the ideal water/whiskey ratio.Generally speaking, any old ice baller will do the trick, but if you want one that will turn some heads at parties, check out this one from Wintersmiths. Born from a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter a couple years ago, the Wintersmiths Ice Baller is the only contraption of it’s kind that makes perfectly clear, perfectly spherical ice balls.Unlike other ice ballers, which typically require you to smash cubes into a spherical shape, Wintersmiths achieves such perfect ice balls by freezing water directionally, from bottom to top, with the help of a cleverly-designed silicon insert. The result is a flawless ball of ice that melts more slowly than a set of small cubes, and also dilutes your drinks to a lesser extent.Get your hands on one here.last_img read more

Premier Commends Seven Wonders of Canada Contest for Selecting Pier 21

first_imgPremier Rodney MacDonald saluted CBC’s Seven Wonders of Canada contest which selected Nova Scotia’s historic Pier 21 as one of the country’s most remarkable places. “Nova Scotians have known about this historic treasure for some time and I am thrilled to know how much others appreciate this site and its importance to Canada,” Premier MacDonald said. The premier noted the efforts of the many volunteers, staff and supporters who have, over recent years, revitalized Pier 21, and turned it into such a popular museum. “To have so much attention, now, on this gateway for both our military personnel and for immigrants entering our country over years past, will be tremendous for Pier 21,” Premier MacDonald said. “It has become a living history lesson as well as a place for those who once passed through its gates to relive the past. As one contest judge so eloquently noted: Pier 21 is the ‘personification of the promise that this country holds.'” The premier encouraged all Nova Scotians and travellers to visit what is now known as one of Canada’s Seven Wonders. He also thanked those voters who supported the other Nova Scotia nominees, the Bay of Fundy and the Cabot Trail, both of which were rated among the top seven by online participants. The Bay Of Fundy drew almost 68,000 votes and the Cabot Trail more than 44,000 from among the about one million votes cast to both earn a spot in the audience category of the Seven Wonders contest. There were 52 nominees from 25,000 suggestions. “The contest was a tremendous geography and natural-history lesson for us all and the results offered a beautiful snapshot of our country,” the premier said.last_img read more

Miner digs up fossilized skull of extinct monster muskox in Yukon

first_imgDAWSON CITY, Yn – An ancient “monster” muskox skull has been uncovered by a miner working near Dawson City, Yukon.The Klondike Placer Miners’ Association said Stuart Schmidt was using heavy equipment at a site in western Yukon on Monday when he stumbled upon an intact skull of a North American helmeted muskox.The species is a distant relative of today’s tundra muskox and is extinct, the association said in a release.Schmidt said in the release that he saw something unusual sticking out of the gravel and decided to investigate.“I got off the ‘dozer and gave it a pull, thinking it was a fragment of bison horn but it did not budge so I pulled harder with both hands and out came a monster from the past,” he said.Grant Zazula, a paleontologist with the territorial government, said his jaw dropped when he got a photo of the skull.“He knew it was something special because we’ve worked with Stuart for years and he’s seen thousands and thousands of fossils before, bones of ice-age animals. And he knew this was something unique when he saw it,” Zazula said.Two of Zazula’s assistants now have the specimen and plans are underway to do carbon dating to determine the age of the fossil.“Because of the incredible preservation, it will give us the opportunity to do all kinds of other work, like genetic studies on this species,” he said.Helmeted muskox were hunted by early First Nations and went extinct about 11,000 years ago, Zazula said.The animals had giant battering rams on their heads, were twice the width of today’s muskox, stood about two feet taller and weighed around 450 kilograms.

End of IsraeliPalestinian conflict critical for regional peace Turkey tells UN debate

24 September 2009A resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on two States existing side by side in peace and security is indispensable to both regional and global peace, the Turkish Prime Minister told the General Assembly today, demanding an opening of barriers which he said were thwarting the reconstruction of Gaza. “Turkey has on every possible occasion stressed that it is not possible to turn a blind eye to the appalling conditions in Gaza,” Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the second day of the high-level segment of the Assembly, held at United Nations Headquarters in New York.“It is our common humanitarian and moral responsibility to ensure that the tragedy unfolding in Gaza is brought to an end, and an atmosphere of lasting peace is created in the region,” said Mr. Erdogan.He told the 192-member Assembly that the three-week Israeli military offensive at the start of the year, which had the stated aim of ending rocket attacks by militants operating in Gaza, quickly turned into a human tragedy.The conflict resulted in the deaths of some 1,400 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and over 5,000 injuries. Many buildings in Gaza were turned to rubble, and even UN sites came under attack, said Mr. Erdogan.“It has been eight months since the declaration of the ceasefires that ended the hostilities in Gaza,” he said, adding that six months have also passed since an international conference in Egypt pledged billions of dollars for the reconstruction of the area. “However, I regret that the human tragedy in Gaza still goes on.”Mr. Erdogan noted that closures at border crossings block reconstruction materials and supplies from entering Gaza, causing extended suffering for the 1.4 million people living in the Strip.“We demand that these obstacles are immediately lifted and normalcy restored to Gaza for the sake of peace and security of both Israel and the Palestinians,” he said. Urging the international community to reinvigorate efforts to resolve the problem, the Prime Minister said told the Assembly that it “is our common humanitarian and moral responsibility to ensure that the tragedy unfolding in Gaza is brought to an end, and an atmosphere of lasting peace is created in the region.” He underscored the importance of resuming Israeli-Palestinian talks – disrupted by the Gaza conflict – as soon as possible, in a wide-ranging speech that touched on talks with Greece over the reunification of Cyprus, reform of the UN, stability in the Caucasus, the territorial integrity of Iraq, and climate change. read more

Grenada accedes to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court

The International Criminal Court (ICC) today welcomed Grenada as a new State party to the Rome Statute, the treaty that established the tribunal, three months after the Caribbean nation deposited its instrument of accession to the accord, becoming the 115th signatory.The statute took effect in Grenada on 1 August, the ICC said in a statement issued after the President of the Court, Sang-Hyun Song, presented the ambassador of Grenada, Stephen Fletcher, with a special edition of the Rome Statute in The Hague, where the court is based.“Each State that joins the ICC sends out a powerful message that it does not tolerate genocide, crimes against humanity or the other atrocious offences listed in the Statute, and it will not provide refuge to those suspected of such crimes,” said Mr. Song.The Vice-President of the Assembly of States Parties and Ambassador of Mexico, Jorge Lomónaco, placed the occasion in Grenada’s historical context.“After 300 years as a colony, an overthrow of the government, an invasion in the mid-’80s and a full restoration of democracy to follow, Grenada has come out as a strong and independent State of the Caribbean Community.” That community, he added, is strongly committed to “combating impunity and bringing justice to victims.”Established by the Rome Statute of 1998, the ICC can try cases involving individuals charged with war crimes committed since July 2002. The Security Council, the ICC Prosecutor or a State Party to the court can initiate any proceedings, and the ICC only acts when countries themselves are unwilling or unable to investigate or prosecute. 23 August 2011The International Criminal Court (ICC) today welcomed Grenada as a new State party to the Rome Statute, the treaty that established the tribunal, three months after the Caribbean nation deposited its instrument of accession to the accord, becoming the 115th signatory. read more

UN winding up repatriation operations for Angolans and some Somalis

The United Nations refugee agency is winding down its repatriation of Angolans with a final convoy from the southern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) today and it is also sending home the last convoy from eastern Ethiopia to north-western Somalia tomorrow.The Angolan refugees left the Kisenge refugee site in southern DRC to Luau in eastern Angola, from which the refugees will go home, with help from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), to communities in Moxico and Lunda Sul provinces.UNHCR has helped 42,400 Angolans go home since the start of the voluntary repatriation in June 2003 and has helped nearly 24,000 refugees who returned to Angola on their own.Some 22,000 Angolans remain in refugee camps and settlements in the DRC and another 72,000 may seek permission from Congolese authorities to settle there, it said.The Angolan repatriation movement ends in October.Meanwhile, the 325 Somalis in the 213th convoy leaving Aisha camp in Ethiopia for the self-declared Republic of Somaliland will carry plastic sheeting, blankets, jerry cans, kerosene stoves and a nine-month supply of food.UNHCR will spend $50,000 on cleaning and replanting Aisha camp, which was the largest refugee-hosting area in 1991 when it housed 26,694 people during one of the peaks of Somali refugee flight, and will then hand it over to the Ethiopian authorities.Last July UNHCR closed Ethiopia’s Hartisheik camp, which was the world’s largest refugee camp in the late 1980s when it housed 250,000 Somalis. read more

Global economic watchdog warns of weak recovery slashes US Canada forecasts

by The Associated Press Posted Jun 3, 2015 4:28 am MDT Last Updated Jun 3, 2015 at 8:31 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Indian laborers work at an under construction residential building in Bangalore, India, Tuesday, June 2, 2015. India’s central bank cut a key interest rate by a quarter percentage point Tuesday, the third such reduction this year in support of government efforts to boost growth. (AP Photo/Aijaz Rahi) Global economic watchdog warns of weak recovery, slashes U.S., Canada forecasts PARIS – The world economy risks being bogged down in a low-growth spiral unless measures are taken to spur demand and incite businesses to boost their stubbornly sluggish investments.That’s the conclusion of the latest economic forecast from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Paris-based body made up of 34 of the world’s most developed countries.In its biannual checkup on the world’s economic health, the OECD has slashed its forecast for the U.S. economy, where winter blizzards in the Northeast and port disruptions on the West Coast caused a first quarter economic contraction.The OECD now expects U.S. economic growth to slow to two per cent this year from 2.4 per cent in 2014, compared to March when it forecast an acceleration to 3.1 per cent in 2015.The Canadian growth estimate was also lowered to 1.5 per cent, from a March prediction of 2.2 per cent and November’s estimate of 2.5 per cent.The Canadian economy has been hit hard by the collapse of global oil prices that began in late November as well as weak conditions in the United States, its biggest trading partner.Statistics Canada reported last week that the economy shrank in the first quarter, with gross domestic product declining by 0.6 per cent.The OECD reported Wednesday that non-energy exports from Canada are begnning to pick up with the help of favourable currency fluctuations and stronger markets.“Non-oil related business investment should strengthen with a lag. Following recent weather-related weakness, consumption growth should pick up,” the OECD report says.Two of Canada’s major banks also updated their economic projections Wednesday. CIBC was even more pessimistic about this year’s growth than the OECD while Royal Bank took more positive view.RBC is projecting Canada’s economy will show 1.8 per cent inflation-adjusted growth this year and 2.6 per cent in 2016, while CIBC is estimating 1.4 per cent growth this year.The OECD is now projecting overall global economic growth at 3.1 per cent this year — a half-point less than in November. Next year’s growth projection has been trimmed slightly to 3.8 per cent, from the previous estimate of 3.9 per cent.The 19-member eurozone is still expected to grow 1.4 per cent this year, unchanged from the March forecast. The OECD also trimmed its forecasts slightly for China and Japan.The world economy has suffered from stubbornly weak growth throughout its recovery from 2009’s Great Recession. This, the OECD notes, “has had very real costs in terms of foregone employment, stagnant living standards in advanced economies, less vigorous development in some emerging economies, and rising inequality nearly everywhere.”The OECD says weak investment, with growth of little more than 2 per cent this year, is partly to blame for the slack recovery. Its forecast of stronger growth in 2016 hinges on its prediction that investment will almost double to 4 per cent next year _ although it warns that this upturn “could remain elusive.”One consequence of the economy’s unusually weak recovery is that unemployment in the OECD region has fallen only 1 per cent since its 2010 peak. By 2016, the group warned, 40 million people will be out of work, 7.5 million more than immediately before the crisis. read more

Le prix du permis d’observation augmentera de 50%. Une décision justifiée par l’augmentation de la population des gorilles comme par celle des visiteurs.Le Rwanda a décidé d’augmenter sensiblement le prix de ces permis pour rendre visite aux gorilles des montagnes, l’attraction touristique principale du pays. Dans un communiqué rapporté par l’AFP, l’Office rwandais de développement (RDB) annonce que le prix passera de 500 à 750 dollars pour les étrangers non-résidents, de 250 à 375 dollars pour les étrangers résidents et de 20.000 francs rwandais (33 dollars) à 30.000 francs (49 dollars) pour les nationaux.

Former Scotland striker says fans should behave

first_imgAccording to ex-Celtic forward Andy Walker, the Scottish government might be forced to intervene if the clubs cannot force their fans to behave well.During the 2018-2019 season, there has been a lot of talk about the supporters’ behavior in the Scottish Premier League.There have been a lot of incidents of racist abuse, fans throwing objects at players and referees, and even fights between the fanatics.This is why former Celtic and Scotland national team striker Andy Walker has said that maybe the Scottish government will have to be involved.“When you see stuff like bottles, coconuts, lighters, coins coming onto the pitch, they could be hitting fellow supporters. We’ve had one that’s hit a linesman, we’ve got players that are under threat,” he said to Sky Sports.Mikey Johnston, CelticJohnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“I feel for the clubs. If you are an individual and you are determined to throw something on the pitch, then I think you’re going to do that. I don’t know what the clubs can do about it.”“I think we’ve had so much fan misbehavior this season. We’ve also got a problem with pyrotechnics, despite the clubs continually telling their supporters not to do it,” he added.“I do fear at some stage it will be taken out of the clubs’ hands and the government will intervene. That will mean, after a couple of steps, they might end up closing a stand.”“I think that’s the road we’re going down because supporters just aren’t listening,” he continued.“I think the vast majority of supporters just want to go and watch the football, but some of the individuals are hell-bent on causing trouble. I don’t know what you can do about it.”last_img read more

Weather Eye Fifth dry weekend in a row introduces a warm dry

first_imgSkies were slow to clear Saturday afternoon but they did it, and began the fifth weekend in a row without drenching rain. And with clearing skies a glimpse of the full moon was in the cards too.Extended forecast charts show dry weather all week — not always clear and sunny, but warmer than average and plenty of sunshine. Some clouds roll by at times but rain will remain far to our north.May has been very cold so far, and wet — as of Saturday afternoon, Vancouver’s month was running 4.5 degrees below average and rainfall was 1.08 inches above average.Our daily highs are normally 66 degrees and we have reached 60 degrees only once — on May 3. Today will be close to 70 and Monday 80. The remainder of the week should be near 70 degrees or so — maybe cooler on Wednesday if the morning clouds don’t clear off in time.I noticed Saturday that the Columbia River and many of the larger streams are running high. It will rise slowly into June with the spring runoff. The higher elevations in the Cascades, however, received 2-4 feet of snow last week — we should have no problems with water shortages again this year.last_img read more
