Five men were arrested for allegedly drinking and creating a ruckus in a train compartment which was also occupied by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla. The arrests were made on 12416 Intercity Express, travelling from Delhi to Indore, at the Mathura station around 1 a.m. on Monday, an Inspector of the Railway Protection Force said.Travelling from DelhiShortly after the train left Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station, the five men from Delhi and Gurugram, who were in an AC coach coupe adjacent to the one in which Mr. Birla was travelling to Kota, started creating a ruckus, the police said.When the Speaker sent his PA, Raghavendra, to look into the matter, the five men got into a spat with the assistant. Mr. Birla then asked Mr. Raghavendra to inform the railway authorities about the incident.A railway police squad arrested the five men when the train arrived in Mathura, they said. Liquor bottles were recovered from the AC-I coupe occupied by the men, police said.Vikas Dagar, Rajeev, Manoj Kumar, residents of New Delhi, and Preetam and Amarjeet Singh from Gurugram were booked under Section 145 of the Railways Act, which deals with drunken behaviour in trains, the RPF inspector said.

Now that Samsung has officially confirmed the launch of its new Galaxy M series in India on January 28, it is time to talk about two of the three rumoured phones that are expected to go official first. It is widely speculated that the Galaxy M10 and M20 are going to be the first phones to launch in this new series, while the Galaxy M30 comes out at a later stage. We now have some insight into the design of the two phones as well, courtesy Amazon India and a leaked manual.Soon after Samsung announced the launch of the Galaxy M series in a press note, Amazon India put up a dedicated page on its platform. The page shows off one of the Galaxy M phones from all sides, but we cannot confirm whether it is of the Galaxy M10 or M20. It’s possible that the two phones will look similar in design and may vary in hardware.The Amazon page firstly confirms the first set of Galaxy M phones will come with a waterdrop Infinity-V display. These are the first Samsung phones to employ this new display, allowing the M series to offer something brand new in the affordable segment. The Infinity-V display means the Galaxy M10 and M20 will come with really thin bezels all around and will offer tall, immersive displays, which are most likely going to be LCD rather than AMOLED.The page also shows off the rear of the Galaxy M phone which is likely all metal and houses a dual camera system on the top left corner and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Interestingly, the affordable Galaxy M phones will come with a Type-C port on the bottom with support for fast charge as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.advertisementGalaxy M20 specificationsSeparately, a Dutch website posted images of what seems to be a manual of the Galaxy M20, revealing the design details that match the image on Amazon India’s page, including the Infinity-V or Infinity-U display and Type-C port. Past benchmark listing has told us that the Galaxy M20 will sport a 6.3-inch LCD panel with a FHD+ (1080×2340) resolution, a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 409 ppi. The phone will also be the first Samsung phone to house a 5,000mAh battery as previously rumoured. The handset is said to measure 156.4 x 74.5 x 8.8 mm and weighs 183 grams.Additionally, the dual rear cameras on the Galaxy M20 includes a 13MP primary sensor with f/1.9 aperture and a 5MP depth sensor. The Galaxy M20 will get an Exynos 7885 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. It also looks like the Galaxy M20 will run on Android Oreo rather than Android Pie with One UI. The Galaxy M series will debut in India before Samsung takes it to other markets.ALSO READ | Samsung confirms Galaxy M series India launch on January 28, Galaxy M10, M20 expected firstALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy M10 price in India could start under Rs 10,000
Australian women’s cricket team wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy on Thursday set a new Guinness World Record for the highest catch of a cricket ball ever taken by any player in the sport.Healy successfully completed the catch after the ball was dropped from a drone, 80 metres above the Melbourne Cricket Ground to claim the record which was previously held by Kristan Baumgartner of England in 2016.Fomer England captain Nasser Hussain had first set the record after successfully grabbing on to the ball which was dropped from 49 metres at the Lord’s Cricket Ground before it was broken by Baumgartner.Healy, who has won the T20 World Cup four times with the Southern Stars, took part in the promotional event for the tournament which will be held next year in Australia.”It’s a nice correlation between what the ICC and Cricket Australia are trying to work towards in breaking the world record for attendance at a women’s sporting fixture for the final on International Women’s Day,” Healy said1 year to go to the @ICC Women’s #T20WorldCup in Australia!

Twitter When Canada’s Tatiana Maslany of the hit TV series Orphan Black won the Emmy for lead actress in a drama, she used her acceptance speech to remind the entertainment industry about a glaring problem.“I feel so lucky to be on a show that puts women at the centre,” she announced.Maslany’s moment arrived almost a year after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau implemented gender parity in his cabinet (“Because it’s 2015!”); six months after the National Film Board of Canada announced that 50 per cent of its productions would be by female filmmakers; and a week after TIFF hosted a vital Dialogues session called Women At The Helm: “Because it’s 2016!” Advertisement Advertisement The TIFF panel included representatives from other countries who outlined their initiatives for getting more women in the director’s chair and described the very real struggles in getting there.Sally Caplan, the head of production at Screen Australia, explained the multiple initiatives in place to achieve a 50/50 gender split in the films down under by 2018. The amazing Anna Serner, CEO of the Swedish Film Institute, spelled out how she had already achieved gender parity in her country’s cinema.Then came Carolle Brabant, the executive director of Telefilm Canada, our primary funding body. Since spring, Telefilm had been hyping a major announcement.And Brabant delivered it: “Our intention is to have by 2020 a more diverse portfolio in terms of gender, in terms of cultural diversity and in terms of Indigenous representation.”That’s it. No initiatives. No specific targets. No ideas on how Telefilm plans to improve representation.Brabant sounded like that kid in math class who hadn’t done her homework, scrambling for an answer when the teacher called her to break down a linear equation. She latched onto the “50/50 by 2020” movement but left out the essential 50/50 part. Telefilm’s chief representative instead promised a “working group” that will meet this month to discuss how in four years it will achieve some vague sense of improved diversity (from almost none).“But that doesn’t mean anything,” says Maslany, when I report Telefilm’s some-sort-of-improvement plan to her.We’re at TIFF days after the panel, and just days before the Emmys. Maslany’s gearing up for the premiere of Two Lovers And A Bear, an Arctic-set drama about a turbulent love affair that opens this weekend. She walked into this interview vibrant and cheery, but her mood gave way to concerned and frustrated. She fought to find words.“It just baffles me,” she says. “It is really hard for women to get into rooms that men are freely flowing in and out of. There are weird stigmas around female directors, like they don’t have technical savvy. There’s just all this bullshit. It’s like from the fucking 50s.“This shouldn’t even be a conversation any more,” she adds. “How is there still reticence toward change? We shouldn’t have to get angry because it shouldn’t be happening. I think people are really scared to shift systems. It is such a male system, and it works and makes money.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Advertisement Login/Register With:
Gurgaon: India has neither forgotten nor will forget the Pulwama terror attack and the country’s leadership is “capable and courageous” to mete out effective responses to such acts, NSA Ajit Doval said Tuesday. Speaking for the first time about the attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed on February 14 in Jammu and Kashmir, the national security advisor (NSA) asked the paramilitary force to “constantly” enhance their professionalism, training, physical capabilities and quick response skills. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “What should we do? What should be our way, our aim and our response and time to respond? The country’s leadership is both capable and courageous to (do) that,” Doval said. “The country will tackle all such challenges and we have the courage to do this,” he said while addressing Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel on the paramilitary force’s 80th raising day celebrations at its group centre here. Doval began his 16-minute speech by paying tributes to the 40 personnel who were killed when a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist blew up his explosives-laden vehicle alongside their bus, which was part of a convoy going from Jammu to Srinagar. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The country has not forgotten and will not forget the terror attack, Doval said, referring to the Pulwama incident. The NSA reiterated that the leadership of the country is fully capable to deal with any act of terror and also against those who abet it. Doval, a close aide of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is believed to be the person behind the planning of the air strike on a JeM camp in Balakot in Pakistan. The strike was carried out by the Indian Air Force (IAF) in retaliation to the Pulwama terror incident, which was one of the worst attack on security personnel in Kashmir in three decades. The Pulwama attack was a “very sad incident”, Doval said, adding that the country will always be indebted to these personnel and their families. He asked CRPF personnel to “not look back” as they have a golden future ahead. “If your morale is high, then the country’s future is safe,” the retired Indian Police Service (IPS) officer and chief of the Intelligence Bureau (IB), said. World history is replete with examples when weak internal security mechanisms led to loss of independence, constitutional crises and collapse of governments, he said. Doval said after World War II, out of the 37 nations that faced such crisis, 28 suffered it because of internal security problems. Therefore, the CRPF, as the lead internal security force of the country has an important role and onerous responsibility in ensuring peace, and law and order, he said. Doval praised the force for its quick response in moving from one conflict or combat theatre to the another in a short time and for being a very “credible” force for the Indian government when it comes to ensuring law and order anywhere in the country. He said anywhere in the country if there is a internal security challenge, “you will find CRPF’s tackling it” The CRPF, with about 3 lakh personnel, has 246 operational battalions, and was raised in 1939 as the Crown Representatives Police during British rule. It was re-named as the CRPF in 1949. It was granted the President’s colour this day in 1950 by the first home minister of the country, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.It is the highest honour bestowed on a force in recognition of exceptional service rendered by it to the nation, both during war and peace. This is the second time that Doval attended as chief guest a martial event conducted by any of the Central Armed Police Forces since he was appointed the NSA by the Modi government in 2014. Doval had reviewed an Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) parade in 2015 when the force guarding the China border marked its 54th years of raising. During the event, the NSA also decorated CRPF jawans and officers with gallantry medals that were announced on the occasion of the Republic Day this year.
“We are on the right track. We know that cleaning up the air we breathe gives rise to huge benefits to both human and environmental health, and we know, too, that low-carbon energy efficiency technologies can help us reduce damaging climate change,” said Erik Solheim, Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) in a press release on the new report.At the same time, the UN Environment chief said: “[We are] also clear on the need for greater action on building a circular economy that cuts waste, and on production innovations that could also create new, green jobs.” Entitled “Green Technology Choices: The Environmental and Resource Implications of Low-Carbon Technologies,” the report, released today at the Vienna Energy Forum, was compiled by a group of eminent experts in natural resource management hosted by UN Environment.The panel examined eight energy efficiency technologies and 36 sub-technologies across buildings, industry and transportation and provided a global assessment of the benefits, risks and trade-offs encountered when energy efficiency technologies are deployed alongside low-carbon electricity supply technologies. Among its findings, the report notes that research confirms that demand-side technologies reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as many other environmental impacts. However, the magnitude of those improvements varies widely among technologies and regions. Indeed, in some cases, say the experts, demand-side technologies may increase resource consumption and even greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, it is crucial to understand where, when, and with which technology investment should be placed to maximize benefits.The report compared two scenarios – one for a global temperature rise of 6 degrees Celsius and the other assuming that the global target of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels is achieved. Key findings of the analysis include:Under the 2-degree scenario, low-carbon energy production and energy efficiency technologies have the potential to cut about 25 billion tonnes a year of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, which is about 34 per cent lower than the emissions under business-as-usual. under the 2-degree scenario more than 17 million tonnes per year of particulate matter and over 3 billion tonnes of emissions toxic to humans could be avoided through the use of low-carbon energy technologiesLow-carbon energy technologies could save more than 200 billion cubic metres of water a year and nearly 150,000 square kilometres of land occupation by 2050.Transformation to low-carbon energy technologies will require over 600 million tonnes of metal resources by 2050 for additional infrastructure and wiring needs.
BMT WBM, a subsidiary of BMT Group, a leading international maritime design, environmental and engineering consultancy, has been awarded a contract to design a major new conveyor system for the Loy Yang mine in Victoria, Australia. The dedicated open-pit mine provides the coal supply for the Loy Yang A and B power stations. The new system will transport overburden from Loy Yang mine to a new internal dump in a worked out section of the mine. Historically, overburden spoil was transported to an external dump up to 10 km away from where the material was being excavated.The project will help AGL Energy comply with its environmental goals through mine rehabilitation and energy saving measures.BMT is responsible for the overall design, providing the detailed design for civil, structural and mechanical elements, as well as liaising with AGL Energy’s in-house team which is delivering the electrical design. The new conveyor system will have the capacity to transport up to 8,500 t/h of material on 2 m wide belts running at 5.3 m/s. The new downhill conveyor will be some 1.34 km long, dropping 131 m to the mine floor using three 1,000 kW variable-frequency drives, to generate power and introduce it back into the grid. The new conveyers have been designed as a modular system with inherent flexibility to allow for unstable ground conditions and will deliver a power saving of around 5 MW over the existing system through 1 MW of regeneration and 4 MW of reduction in demand.The project has to be delivered within tight time constraints to ensure the new infrastructure is ready to accept plant currently deployed on the external dump.The very large travelling stacker has to be moved to the floor of the mine crossing the 500 MW ‘Basslink’ cable that connects the electricity grids of Victoria and Tasmania, during an outage planned for March 2017.A spokesperson from AGL Energy said: “AGL Energy is pleased that BMT is supporting the delivery of environmental improvements to its Loy Yang Mine. BMT’s innovative design will ensure that overburden will be moved efficiently and effectively to the new internal dump, backfilling and rehabilitating the mine as part of its day to day activities.”Peter Essig, State Business Unit Manager of BMT WBM’s machinery group comments: “BMT has a long, successful history working with AGL Energy, including being involved with this project since 2006 when we produced the initial conceptual design. We’re delighted to have been awarded the detailed design and look forward to delivering another successful project.”

Of the untested kits, about 400 are cases from the Sheriff’s Department and roughly 600 are from eight other police agencies in the San Diego region.The push to get more evidence tested received strong support last August from the U.S. Justice Department which recommended that all rape kits be tested. Stephan also cited a new law that would require law enforcement agencies within 120 days of collecting an evidence kit to report on why it was not tested.The policy director for a survivors’ advocacy group called Joyful Heart Foundation, founded by actress Mariska Hargitay, said the District Attorney’s efforts would help to bring more perpetrators to justice.“When we test rape kits, we can identify unknown offenders, link serial cases, link crimes together, revealing serial rapists and we can also exonerate the wrongly convicted,” said Ilse Knecht.A sexual assault survivor named Sharon came forward with her story of a brutal rape in which her attacker left her for dead. RAPE KIT TESTING: If you were the victim of a sexual assault and are interested in knowing the status of the DNA test related to your kit, we can connect you with an investigator. Call (858) 514-4661.More info: https://t.co/0TtlyjdzIb@SDSheriff @TheJHF @CCS_SD pic.twitter.com/hfoL53Dpjl— SD District Attorney (@SDDistAtty) April 24, 2018Her rape kit was tested and nearly five years later, the DNA evidence was matched with a man who was incarcerated in another state but was days away from his release.As a result of the DNA match, the man was brought back to San Diego for trial where he was convicted of the sexual assault and sentenced to 106 years in prison. “I was finally able to find justice and start to heal and feel safe again.This person was caught because of a rape kit that was processed. In my mind, there is no excuse that all rape kits should not be processed,” Sharon said.The San Diego Police Department is not part of this new initiative. In a 2016 tour of the crime lab, the police department’s lab manager explained why some rape kits are not tested. Sometimes, investigators can’t determine that a crime actually occurred or there may be reasonable doubt that a DNA sample is from the perpetrator and not from a consensual partner.Lab manager Jennifer Shen also indicated that the tests do not always yield useful results.“Somewhere between 50 to 70 percent of the sexual assault tests do not produce a qualifying, analytically good DNA profile that can even be uploaded to the DNA database,” Shen said.In cases where the victim and the attacker know each other, Shen said investigators may decide that instead of testing a rape kit, they will collect the suspect’s DNA through a mouth swab, “because 100 percent of the time we’re going to get a profile off of that and we can put that profile in the database.”The District Attorney and the advocates for sexual assault survivors who were present at Tuesday’s news conference still see the need for all rape kits to be tested, even if the assault is committed by an acquaintance.“We’re seeing that acquaintance rapists are also serial rapists,” said Knecht. “There may be a series of assaults against someone they know and then someone they don’t know.”The San Diego County District Attorney also announced that survivors of sexual assault can request information about the testing status of their evidence kits, through a phone number or an email address. The phone number is (858) 514-4661.The email address is KitTestResults@sdsheriff.org. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter
HD Kumaraswamy.HD Kumaraswamy Twitter Account [Representational Image]The Income Tax (IT) department is conducting massive raids at the residence of several Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) leaders in Karnataka. It is alleged that nearly 200-300 officers were brought from several states to conduct the raids.Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has termed this as revenge politics organised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi against Congress and JD(S). He also alleged that the offer of a constitutional post to the IT Director General BR Balakrishnan has helped the Prime Minister in his revenge game. The coalition partners have also called the ongoing raids as a political gimmick.The raids are still going on at several places belonging to the politicians, including Minor Irrigation Minister CS Puttaraju, a key man for the party in Mandya. The raids were conducted at his nephew Ashok’s house in Mysuru.Puttaraju has blamed actress-turned-politician Sumalatha for the IT raids. He said that the raids are being conducted after she complained to the Election Commission (EC) about the state government misusing power.On Thursday, the IT sleuths raided the office of BM Farooq, a businessman and JD(S) MLC, on Residency road. The authorities also stopped his staff from entering the premises.They also raided the houses of close aides of Public Works Department (PWD) Minister HD Revanna and PWD office in Hassan. The house of a PWD contractor in Chikamagaluru was also searched by the department.The JD-S leaders have slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the raids. In a tweet, Kumaraswamy said that PM Modi was conducting a surgical strike through IT raids. twitter”PM @narendramodi’s real surgical strike is out in the open through IT dept raids. The constitutional post offer for IT officer Balakrishna helped the PM in his revenge game. Highly deplorable to use govt machinery, corrupt officials to harass opponents during election time,” the tweet read.The former CM and Congress state chief, Siddaramaiah, also slammed the BJP by calling it the most coward party in the world. He said that the opposition is trying to intimidate and demoralise supporters during the election time.Deputy CM G Parameshwara also reacted to the IT raids saying that the BJP is trying to threaten the coalition partners ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.On Thursday, Congress and JD(S) leaders organised protests near the IT office in Queens road. HD Kumaraswamy, HD Devegowda and KPCC president Dinesh Gundu Rao took part in the protests.While the Congress has been seriously slamming the BJP over the IT raids, BJP state president BS Yeddyurappa told media that the leaders of the coalition government should not worry over the raids if they are innocent. He also slammed the minor irrigation minister for his allegation on Sumalatha.Former Deputy CM and senior BJP leader KS Eshwarappa said that Kumaraswamy is unfit to be a CM. “He had got the information about the IT raids and alerted the thieves before the raids,” Eshwarappa said.
Sushma Swaraj.Fiery, feisty and indefatigable, former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who died on Tuesday, was a leader who fit many roles in her long political leader. She might be remembered best for giving an all-new dimension to the role of foreign minister by being proactive in reaching out to Indians in distress in foreign lands.But looking back, it was equally important to have contested against Sonia Gandhi in Bellary on the Congress leader’s electoral debut in what was billed as a evideshi bahu’ versus ebharatiya nari’ contest. Bellary was then a Congress safe seat and for the BJP it was important to fight against the then-new Congress president because the latter’s foreign origin was an important political issue at the time.Her brief tenure as Delhi chief minister was important too, for she broke a glass ceiling as the first woman chief minister of the state. That was about as important as being the youngest cabinet minister at 25 years in the Haryana cabinet in 1977.Her proximity to Bharatiya Janata Party stalwart LK Advani was what led to her rise. She was one of the four Advani acolytes who came to be known as the D4, the four powerful leaders from Delhi who pretty much dominated the party at the time: Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, Ananth Kumar and M Venkaiah Naidu.It was because of the power that they wielded that two of the D4 came to occupy top positions in the party structure when the BJP was in opposition during UPA rule — Sushma Swaraj was the leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha and Arun Jaitley was the leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha.Being outspoken and clear-headed got her into the headlines. What perhaps contributed to that was her confidence in herself — and that she was never afraid to walk alone. Perhaps that was why she allowed media persons to walk up to her and ask questions. Former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.IANSFor her supporters, there might have been mixed feelings about some of the controversies surrounding her — like facilitating the foreign travel documents of former cricket administrator Lalit Modi in 2011 and dancing at Gandhi Samadhi in Rajghat while staging a protest. Her explanations, forceful though they were, had appeared less than fully convincing.She got into a spot of bother when a photograph of her apparently blessing the controversial Bellary brothers appeared in the media. Behind the damage limitation exercise that followed were rumours of her face-off with a prominent party leader because she thought she was taking the fall for someone else’s association with the Bellary duo — that while the BJP leader had backed them, she was being made to look poorly in public because of the photograph. Party insiders say that even though she had moved on from the episode, she never forgave the BJP leader.Sushma Swaraj might not have been in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s inner circle but she held her own, often winning praise from the Prime Minister for her role as External Affairs Minister. Delhi’s insidious grapevine had suggested that she was asked to contest for the Lok Sabha this year but she declined, citing health reasons. The truth about that might never be made public.Women politicians, even the fiery among them, often come to be regarded as mother figures in their later years. Sushma Swaraj was no exception and her role as External Affairs Minister endorsed this image of her. But, behind that amiable exterior was a politician of immense calibre and top-grade firepower. Indeed, those who saw her for the first time were often surprised that she was not quite tall.Hours before she passed away, Sushma Swaraj had tweeted her congratulations to the Prime Minister and Home Minister for the decision on Article 370. Here too, she had a role to play — through her speech in the Lok Sabha in 1996 when she spoke on the BJP’s plan to remove Article 370, which is in the party’s core agenda, along with a uniform civil code and building a Ram temple at Ayodhya.For a committed BJP leader, it is likely that she would have been at peace following the government’s decision on the contentious constitutional provision.
