Withdrawing security a retrograde step: Omar

first_imgJ&K’s regional parties, including National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party, reacted sharply on Thursday to the administration’s move to withdraw security from political figures.“Withdrawal of security to mainstream political workers and office-bearers is a retrograde step that will only weaken political activity in the Valley. This is regardless of the fact that no one from NC has had their security withdrawn in yesterday’s list,” said NC vice president and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.The administration on Wednesday withdrew security of 155 political persons and activists, including IAS topper Shah Faesal and PDP’s Waheed Parra. Around 18 separatists’ security was also withdrawn.Mr. Abdulllah said he has no doubt this step was taken without taking into consideration inputs from Central and State intelligence agencies, “which can only mean it’s been done for political purposes and there is an element of pick and choose at play here”.last_img read more

22 Maharashtra MLAs switch parties since 2014 elections; NCP worst-hit

first_imgThe existing Assembly has witnessed 22 MLAs switching their political parties from which they had won the elections in 2014. Of them, 17 are sitting MLAs from the Opposition, who joined either the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or Shiv Sena. The defection started with former Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil joining the BJP before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.Only two legislators — one each from the BJP and Sena — have shifted to the Opposition. Katol’s former BJP MLA Ashish Deshmukh and Suresh Dhanorkar, former Sena MLA from Varora in Chandrapur, joined the Congress before the general elections. Mr. Dhanorkar is now the lone Congress MP from Maharashtra.  BJP’s Anil Gote from Dhule has rebelled against the party while Sena’s Harshvardhan Jadhav from Aurangabad’s Kannad Assembly seat contested the Lok Sabha elections against his party candidate. Sena’s Pratap Chikhlikar is now BJP’s MP from Nanded.Among the opposition MLAs who switched the sides, the NCP has suffered the most with eight of its MLAs deserting the party.Of them, five joined the Sena and rest the BJP. Seven Congress MLAs have quit the party, of whom three joined the Sena and BJP respectively. The lone Congress MLA, Nitesh Rane, is part of the Maharashtra Swabhiman Party, founded by his father Narayan Rane, which is now part of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance.Vilas Tare of the Bahujan Vikas Aghadi and Sharad Sonawane of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena have joined the Sena.“Those who are afraid, those who cannot live without power, and those who have something to hide are joining the ruling alliance. We wish them well. But after the 2019 Assembly polls, they will find themselves either defeated or in the Opposition once again. The people will give them a fitting reply,” NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik said.Social activist Anjali Damania said in olden days, people used to take sides depending on the ideology with which they agree.“Now the only ideology that runs our country is power. The induction of people like Kripashanker Singh, Ganesh Naik and Narayan Rane, who have very serious charges of corruption against them, along with a long list of Congress and NCP leaders, clearly shows that the BJP is not at all interested in fighting corruption. Its only agenda is to destroy the Opposition, and this is very dangerous for democracy,” she said.last_img read more

Asian Games: Sarita Devi loses controversial bout, settles for bronze

first_imgSarita DeviIndian boxer L. Sarita Devi lost her semi-final bout in controversial circumstances and had to be content with the bronze medal in the women’s light weight (57-60kg) event of the 17th Asian Games here on Tuesday.The 32-year-old Indian lost 0-3 in an unanimous decision to South Korea’s Jina Park at the Seonhak Gymnasium.After losing the first round convincingly, Sarita came back strongly in the next.Judges B and C of Italy and Poland awarded the round 10-9 to the Indian, however, Judge A of Tunisia gave it 10-9 to the South Korean.The controversy, though, took place in the third round as the Indian battered Park and had her reeling, but, inexplicably, Judges B and C awarded the round 10-9 in favour of the host fighter while Judge A gave the round 10-9 to Sarita.The fourth and decisive round was also a close fought affair with nothing to separate the two but all three judges awarded the round 10-9 to the South Korean that sealed her passage to the final of the weight category.Sarita Devi was visibly distressed by the judges’ decision and waited for a while before exiting the ring.According to reports, India are mulling an appeal against the verdict.last_img read more

Superb Suarez shows what Madrid are missing

And Barcelona are all the better off because of it.The Blaugrana broke their Anoeta hoodoo and it was in large part thanks to the Uruguayan. Barca had failed to win in La Liga away to the San Sebastian side since 2007 and again found life difficult this time as they went 2-0 down to the Basques in the first half.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player But Paulinho pulled one back before the break and Suarez scored twice in the second half to turn the game on its head – the first with a wonderful curled lob and the second a more opportune finish after a mistake by goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli.That was an 11th goal in as many matches for Suarez and an eighth in his last six appearances, having netted in all of those games. And it is now 14 goals in 25 fixtures for the Uruguayan in 2017-18 – much more like his usual ratio.Barcelona Real Sociedad scoreHe has taken time to get back to his best after picking up an injury in the opening game of the season against Betis and rushing back to help his country in the World Cup qualifiers.In the meantime, Suarez has also had to adjust to a new system with coach Ernesto Valverde preferring 4-4-2, while he was also the player most affected by the summer sale of Neymar and the subsequent injury to Ousmane Dembele.Strikers thrive on confidence too and there were times when the 30-year-old was reduced to a pale shadow of his brilliant best version. With his fitness improved, however, and the goals flying in once more, he now looks like the world’s finest again.Paulinho Barcelona Real SociedadLuis Suarez Andre Gomes Jordi Alba BarcelonaHis return to form is timely as Barca approach the business end of the season in the hunt for three trophies. The Blaugrana are among the favourites in the Champions League, while they face Espanyol in the last eight of the Copa del Rey and are in a commanding position in La Liga.Sunday’s win means Barca are nine clear of second-placed Atletico at the halfway stage, with Real Madrid 19 adrift (albeit with a game in hand) after Los Blancos lost at home to Villarreal on Saturday.No Madrid player has netted more than four in the Primera Division this season and Suarez showed Barca’s rivals the power of an on-form forward on Sunday (along with Lionel Messi, who rounded off a memorable win with a stunning free-kick).Goals win games and that is why clubs pay such big money for players like Suarez. On this form, there is no better striker in the world and should he continue in the same vein, the sky is the limit for Barca this season. Madrid will be looking on with envy.last_img read more

De Ligt reveals why he chose Juventus

first_imgMatthijs de Ligt has revealed that a fascination with Italian football contributed to him opting for a €75 million (£68m/$84m) move to Juventus over a switch to England or Spain.After several months of speculation, the 19-year-old has finally completed a big-money move to the Serie A champions.Old Trafford and Camp Nou had been mooted as potential landing spots for the Netherlands international, with Manchester United and Barcelona reportedly keen, but the Allianz Stadium is his new home.

Such as [Paolo] Maldini, [Franco] Baresi, [Alessandro] Nesta, [Fabio] Cannavaro and [Gaetano] Scirea.”When you talk about defenders, then you soon talk about those names.”I actually fell in love with the Italian way of defending and I made a choice based on that.”Cristiano Ronaldo Matthijs de Ligt GFXDe Ligt’s displays at Ajax, which saw him become club captain while still in his teens, made him one of the most sought-after talents in world football.He admits that the decision to leave his homeland has not been an easy one, but he is convinced that Juve are the best club for him at this stage of his career.”It was a difficult choice,” De Ligt added.”There were several options, but you always have to look what’s the best for you.”Various factors play a role.

Parks Canada painstakingly prepared for deluge of Canada 150 visitors

first_imgCALGARY – From avoiding burned out workers to ensuring washrooms have enough toilet paper, documents show how Parks Canada painstakingly prepared for a record number of visitors this year.To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Ottawa has made admission to Canada’s national parks and historic sites free in 2017.Presentations and memos obtained by The Canadian Press through the Access to Information Act cite traffic snarls, run-ins with wildlife and visitor safety as some of the challenges officials flagged in the months leading up to a projected deluge.“While many Parks Canada places have the capacity to comfortably host more visitors, some of the most popular places are already heavily patronized at peak times,” Parks Canada CEO Daniel Watson wrote in a November 2016 memo to Environment Minister Catherine McKenna.“The possibility of increases during peak visitation has the potential for congestion, visitor safety and ecological impact risks. Parks Canada is preparing plans and measures to manage these risks.”The memo noted a potential increase in human-wildlife interactions, especially on roads and highways.“Furthermore, increased visits by non-traditional audiences who may be less familiar with national parks may lead to entry through unauthorized points, use of unofficial trails or behaviours that may require safety interventions, such as visitors getting lost on trails.”One strategy was to try to spread out the crowds by promoting some places with greater capacity more heavily while reducing the profile of others through the media.“Situations where overloads are occurring or can be expected will be clearly communicated, complemented by suggestions of alternative destinations,” the memo said. “Shoulder season activities and events will be given greater priority.”It said staffing and training would be increased, particularly among janitorial and front-line staff. Seasonal staff were to start their jobs earlier.Parks attendance had already been rising by around six to seven per cent annually in recent years, said Joel Reardon, a spokesman for the agency’s Canada 150 plans.There were 23.2 million visitors in 2015 and 24.6 million in 2016.As of July, Parks Canada was seeing a nine per cent increase from the same time last year across its network, Reardon said.“Some places are busy without a doubt, but nothing out of the ordinary and everything is manageable at this point,” he said.“I can tell you all of our planning going into this summer, going into 2017, is paying off.”This year’s visitor increase to date isn’t far off from the 27.3 million Parks Canada was forecasting for 2017-18 in an undated draft report on how the free admission would be implemented.“There is no precedent for free admission at Parks Canada, which creates unique challenges for forecasting 2017 visitation,” the agency said in the draft.“While Parks Canada believes that visitation forecasts and planning ranges are reasonable, the agency is nonetheless preparing contingencies for exceptional levels of visitation in 2017.”A chart accompanying the draft delved into how the agency would be affected if visitation exceeded estimates.For instance, if there were to be 50 million visitors, it could result in “significant negative media coverage and reputational impacts, staff burnout, and radical measures to deliver services.” It also noted the possibility of “increased costs for facilities and all services.”Public washrooms were an area of concern. At Lake Louise, the picturesque Rockies tourist hotspot, the report said there would need to be 25,000 additional industrial-sized toilet paper rolls — a 25 per cent increase. It also mentioned a “new janitorial rapid response team” and a bolstered vacuum truck operations schedule.A document outlining communications initiatives in 2017 touched on the well-being of Parks staffers.“Information on employee support services would be frequently disseminated to assist employees dealing with added stress, longer hours and potentially challenging public interactions.”Banff National Park, Canada’s busiest, had just over four million visitors in the 2016-17 fiscal year.A slide show presentation on Banff’s preparations said the park was bracing for as much as a 25 per cent increase in 2017-18.But Greg Danchuk, the Banff field unit’s visitor experience manager, said as of the end of July, the park is seeing just a five per cent jump from the same a year ago — in line with the annual increases it’s seen in recent years.Banff has been offering shuttles from Calgary and between various points within the park to deal with congestion, boosted its staffing levels and encouraged visitors to book campsites early.“We’ll be able to ensure that people have a really safe experience, but an outstanding experience as well with lots of opportunities to enjoy this wonderful place.”last_img read more

UN and African Union to convene highlevel meeting on Somali peace process

The meeting will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on the sidelines of the African Union Summit which opened today, and will be jointly convened by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Jean Ping, Chairman of the AU Commission.Mr. Ban’s Special Representative for Somalia, Augustine P. Mahiga, noted that the meeting comes at a very crucial juncture, given that, under the Transitional Federal Charter, the interim authority’s mandate is set to expire in August. “We have less than seven months before the end of the transition, and yet a lot still has to be done,” he stated in a news release issued by the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS).Several tasks remain to be completed such as continuing initiatives on reconciliation, building civilian and security institutions and the completion of the constitution-making process.Mr. Mahiga announced that the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) – which is supported by a UN-backed AU peacekeeping force, known as AMISOM – has come up with a road map, outlining priority tasks which it will have to achieve towards the end of the transition.“There was unanimous agreement, both inside and outside Somalia, that the transitional period has to end in August as envisaged under the Djibouti Peace Agreement,” he said, referring to the UN-facilitated peace process that began in 2008.“In the meantime, consultations are underway to develop a consensus on how to end the transition and on the nature of post-transition political arrangements,” he added. Somalia – which has not had a functioning central government since 1991 – has been torn apart by decades of conflict and factional strife, more recently with al-Shabaab Islamic militants. The country is also facing a dire humanitarian crisis in which 3.2 million people, more than 40 per cent of the population, is in need of aid.Mr. Mahiga called for internal consultations among the Somalis themselves to build consensus on the way forward.“It is critical that the consensus-building process ensures that the gains made so far are sustained and entrenched beyond the end of the transition,” he stated. “After two decades of suffering, the time has come for Somalia to return to a nation in which its citizens are allowed the opportunity to live a fruitful life in peace and security.” 26 January 2011The United Nations and the African Union will hold a high-level meeting in a few days to review efforts to achieve peace, security and reconciliation in strife-torn Somalia, which has been suffering through two decades of conflict and numerous humanitarian challenges. read more

Theatre cancels LGBT play after two cast members were subjected to homophobic

A theatre has cancelled performances of a play about an LGBT couple after two members of the cast were attacked in the street.Two actresses received homophobic abuse from a car and were hit by stones on their way to work at the theatre in Southampton.The producers of ‘Rotterdam’ announced that performances would not go ahead at the Nuffield Southampton Theatre on June 8.Rebecca Bantavla, 27, told The Telegraph she now fears kissing in public after her girlfriend was assaulted.She said: “We kissed in the street, and then when we leaned in again someone from a moving car threw something at Lucy.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Lucy Jane, 31, said: “We were walking down the street having a laugh, we kissed and then heard some young men shouting. “We couldn’t get their reg (sic), it all happened so fast. I was shocked, we got to the theatre and my manager called the police.”I just feel sorry that those boys couldn’t watch the show and learn about the community rather than them being oppressive.”Ms Bantavla, from east London, said her partner was left bruised with her face swollen after she was struck by a flying object.She said: “Lucy was hit in the temple and went down to the floor. All I could hear was the sound of the young boys laughing. “Lucy was in shock, it all happened so fast, all I can remember now is the sound of aggressive noises and seeing her on the ground.”We are still going to continue with the show, now more than ever we want to tell the story of a woman who plans on coming out.” She added: “My reaction was complete shock, what happened has made me much more way of kissing, it shouldn’t be like that.”The producers of Rotterdam confirmed in a statement online that the play was cancelled due to a “homophobic hate crime”.It read: “We are devastated this behaviour is still so prevalent, a fact which reinforces the importance of this play’s message. “We are doing all we can to support the team and thank our audiences and colleagues for their support.“They have sustained only minor injuries but are hugely shaken from this cowardly, homophobic hate crime.”Hampshire constabulary said: “We have received a report from a third party relating to an incident which happened on Hill Lane.“It has been reported that homophobic abuse was shouted at two women, and stones thrown at them, by the occupants of a car.”It comes after Melania Geymonat, 28, and her girlfriend Chris were subjected to a homophobic attack and robbery on a London night bus. The couple were left covered in blood after they refused to kiss on May 30 – and five teenagers arrested over the incident have been bailed.Meanwhile, it was confirmed that the play is going ahead in Eastbourne tonight (Mon), and in Manchester on Thursday and Friday.Rotterdam, by Jon Brittain, premiered at Theatre 503 in south London in 2015 and moved to Trafalgar Studios the following year.It revolves around a couple living in the Netherlands, with both characters grappling with their emerging sexual identities.Director Sam Hodges tweeted: “This only makes us more determined to tell these important stories on our stages.” read more

The Cutting Edge approach to digital marketing

first_imgWith the pace of life increasing by the day, more people are taking the time to question what they want out of their work arrangements; so tired of feeling forever time-poor, and as though they are missing out on the important moments. Balance and flexibility have become the new buzz words. One such person taking matters into her own hands is Reeva Cutting (nee Vassilaros), who, after three years in the world of digital marketing decided to start her own business. “From a family point of view I’ve been able to attend [my child’s]school events and help out when I ordinarily would have been working and unable to get involved,” Reeva, who has been at the helm of her company Cutting Edge Digital for six months now, tells Neos Kosmos. “Being able to work around my life has been the biggest benefit of all. I love choosing where I work and what hours I work, as well as getting out and about meeting new clients and meeting up with my support network of other girl bosses.”Marketing has evolved over the last 10 to 15 years, and with greater value in online marketing where results are measurable and more affordable, new doors have opened for those in the industry seeking greater autonomy. In addition to TV, radio, and print advertising her clients have the option of purchasing Reeva’s online digital marketing packages which include search engine optimisation, Google AdWords, copywriting, and blogging services. Born in Durban, South Africa, to a South African mother and Greek father, Reeva initially pursued studies in film and history at the University of Cape Town. A free spirit at heart however, she admits to never having imagined living in South Africa long-term; looking at her familial history, perhaps this is something that runs in her genes:“My dad was actually born in Alexandria, Egypt, with his mother being from Cyprus and his father from Ikaria. They left Egypt during the Suez crisis and moved to Athens. They then moved to South Africa to start a new life when my dad was six years old.” After completing her tertiary studies, Reeva ventured to France before settling in the UK for 10 years. While there she met her now husband, and worked in the insurance sector as a business and process analyst – a career path far removed from her film and history aspirations, though perhaps serendipitous as an aptitude test she took at the age of 14 suggested it would be a good fit. Despite the test however, it really wasn’t meant to be, career-wise, and for the best it would seem. “After our son was born, we started to explore our options when it came to where we wanted to raise our family and after a very long decision-making process we settled on Perth, Australia,” Reeva says.It was with that new start that Cutting says she decided to take a different career direction, and landed herself a junior role in digital marketing. Over the next three years she worked her way up, learning everything there is to know about digital marketing from SEO and SEM to blogging and social media. “After three years in the same role I realised that what I really wanted to do was work for myself so I took the plunge and started my own business in 2016,” a decision that is already proving to pay off. While new businesses often struggle to promote themselves, she has already gained some loyal and passionate clients and they’ve been recommending her via word of mouth which she says “is the best compliment I could have so early on in my business,” and one that she puts down to hard work, passion, and a true understanding of her clients’ needs.“I feel it’s been because I am able to provide a quality service at an affordable price. I’m passionate about what I do and even though I might finish work on a client’s site, I’ll go the extra mile and continue to provide advice and support if they need it along the way.”One of the most common mistakes she sees businesses making when it comes to marketing is failing to measure online results.“So many people build beautiful websites and don’t bother to add Google Analytics to track how many visitors they have or what those visitors do on the website. Or people add Google Analytics but don’t add any goals to track. Even something as simple as a PDF download or a submission of a contact form should be tracked so you can easily see how much people are engaging with your website,” she explains.Now four years since the move to Australia Reeva is not looking back anytime soon. For the past two years she has been sharing the joy with others, primarily fellow South Africans, through her blog ‘Proudly South African in Perth & WA’ with helpful information for those looking to migrate to Australia, and now has her own sights set on applying for citizenship. “We love the outdoor lifestyle, the great weather and being so close to gorgeous beaches – I’m a beach girl at heart and believe a walk on the beach can truly change your mood.”For more information about the services on offer at Cutting Edge Digital, visit http://cuttingedgedigital.com.au/ Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

rape be pressed against group leader Sunil Kulkarni While posting the matter for Tuesday the Bombay High Court said it would direct the DCP of the Crime Branch to monitor further investigations into the matter and consider if the allegations made by the parents could be considered A bench of Justice R M Savant and Justice Sandeep Shinde said: “With further investigations going on the DCP Crime
