Conrad Sangma heads non-Congress coalition 10 years after father stitched one

first_imgConrad Kongkal Sangma has begun his innings as the head of a non-Congress government in Meghalaya 10 years after his father Purno Agitok Sangma stitched one.The Meghalaya Progressive Alliance that the senior Sangma cobbled up in 2008 had – except for the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the People’s Democratic Front (PDF), a new regional player – the same constituents as younger son Conrad’s coalition government sworn in on Tuesday.But then, the NCP metamorphosed into the National People’s Party (NPP) that is heading the coalition now. Conrad Sangma took over charge of the NPP after his father, who founded the party in January 2013, died two years ago.The Assembly election a decade ago had produced a fractured verdict. The Congress with 25 MLAs was the single largest party, but the NCP with 14 and the United Democratic Party (UDP) with 11 came together to form the government with the BJP (one MLA) and other regional parties such as the Hill State People’s Democratic Party (HSPDP) that had two legislators.This time, the Congress bagged 21 seats including the two that former Chief Minister Mukul M. Sangma won. The NPP won 19, the UDP six, the PDF four and the BJP and the HSPDP two each.In 2008, Purno Sangma gave up the opportunity to become Meghalaya’s Chief Minister for the second time in order to ensure stability in a State notorious for political uncertainty except for the first six years after its birth in 1972.UDP president Donkupar Roy became the Chief Minister that year, but the inevitable happened. The alliance government lasted a year, 365 days to be precise.Mr. Roy has been chosen Speaker of the 60-member Assembly. Elections, though, were held for 59 seats only as suspected militants had gunned down NCP candidate Jonathone N. Sangma in the Williamnagar seat.“History has repeated itself if one takes the composition of the NPP-led government into consideration. But we hope the well-educated, young (40) Conrad Sangma will have fresh ideas to not let the history of instability be repeated,” Tokiwaio Blah, former bureaucrat and political analyst, told The Hindu from Meghalaya capital Shillong.The father and son, he added, have another thing in common. They were sworn in as Chief Minister on the same day – February 6.Purno Sangma was 41 years old when he became the State’s fourth Chief Minister in 1988.last_img read more

‘Nuclearisation of India and Pakistan has acted as a deterrent to war’

SANATH KUMAR, on e-mail Apocalypse Now Barking dogs do not bite and we have learnt with time that Pakistan barks whenever pushed into a corner (“If Pakistan Nukes India”, June 10). However, if General Pervez Musharraf gambles on biting India with a nuclear strike, he will do so at his own peril as Pakistan will be wiped out. R.S. JOSHI, Bharuch In a nuclear war there are no winners, no losers and no survivors, only annihilation. There is still time for Musharraf to change his stance. But as the proverb goes, can a leopard change its spots? DR V.T. BALACHANDRAN, Chennai Why would Musharraf want to destroy terrorist camps in Pakistan when almost all successive rulers reign only by instigating the Pakistanis to become jehadis in their fight against India? G. BALATHANDABANI, Chennai Our no-first-use policy along with the possibility of a virtual extinction of our adversary should keep a nuclear exchange between the two countries at bay. NAVNEET DHAWAN, Delhi “Liberation is both a single woman’s bravado to conceal her insecurity and a euphemism for promiscuity.” H.R. BAPUSATYANARAYAN, MysoreTill now, the only mature act of Indian leaders has been to generate world opinion against Pakistan. It is time for them to exploit the situation and get Pakistan to enter into a dialogue with us to solve all disputes, including the Jammu and Kashmir one. SONIA GARG, on e-mail The nuclearisation of India and Pakistan has acted as a deterrent to war because the global community can no longer afford to look the other way. But for that, the current military brinkmanship would have burgeoned into another full-fledged, ruinous war. NALINI VIJAYARAGHAVAN, Thiruvananthapuram Despite a nuclear threat looming large on the subcontinent for the past few years, we cannot churn out gory facts about nuclear holocausts each time tensions escalate. Reporting the possible scenario is acceptable, making it look like the inevitable is not. NATASHA JOSHI, on e-mail The conjecture was inappropriate given the tension simmering between India and Pakistan. Instead of dealing with possible solutions for changing the hostile stances or elaborating on the developments in the conflict between the two countries, you chose to focus on the sensational subject of the effects of a nuclear war. Such writing only creates panic. A. ALEXANDER, on e-mail Perhaps your intention was to impress upon the enemy the dangers of nuclear warfare. Sadly, the images accompanying the article only helped in sparking fear in the minds of Indians. Humphrey Hawksley’s Dragonfire- an equally sobering but toned down interpretation of just such an event- makes for better reading. RISHABH GULATI, on e-mail Your article does not answer the obvious question: where would India’s command and control be to retaliate in case Pakistan’s nuclear weapons simultaneously destroy Delhi, Mumbai and a good part of north India? And who would be there to execute the counterstrikes? K.R. SHARMA, Mumbai Is there any way in which one could know if a missile is carrying a nu- clear warhead and how the targeted country should react to such an attack? COLONEL (RETD) RIAZ JAFRI, Rawalpindi Self Assertion It is baffling why India is looking for the cooperation and encouragement of other countries in its war against terrorism (“In Striking Distance”, June 3). In a real sense there is no friendship among countries, only interests-economic or political. It is about time India took an independent stand. DIPTANSU SHARMA, Guwahati Might is Right The prospect of war is never far but efforts to delay the battle should not be construed as India’s weakness (“Defending Kashmir”, June 3). In view of the present crisis,we have to defeat the nefarious designs of the enemy and fight a decisive battle. We cannot and should not suffer the terrorist torment forever. R.R. SAMI, Tiruvannamalai The present crisis reminds me of the words of former army chief General K. Sundarji: “Something deep down bothers me. We seem to be convinced that it is immoral to be strong and virtuous to be weak.” It appears that nothing has changed in the past two decades. C.B. DYUTHIKAR, Bangalore Blight Spirit After witnessing the state-sponsored anarchy during the wedding of Laloo Prasad Yadav’s second daughter, I would prefer dying in a war to living in a peaceful democracy where a Laloo-Rabri Devi combine keeps hurting my sensibilities beyond repair (“Married by the Mob”, June 10). SANKALP PRATAP, on e-mail After the wedding of Laloo’s first daughter, there was an income-tax raid at his house. Wiser, he chose the son of an IT commissioner for his second daughter. Sure enough, there was no raid this time. For the next girl in line, he would perhaps be looking for a groom from a judge’s family. DR MANASH R. GHOSE, Kolkata The only silver lining is that Laloo-Rabri have seven more children to marry off so at least seven more villages in Bihar like Hichhanbigha can look forward to salvation. SHITANSHU PRASAD, on e-mail What is frightening businessmen dealing in cars, furniture and jewellery in Patna? The fact that there is a large brood of the Laloo dynasty which will also be married in the near future. UDITA AGRAWAL, Delhi Historical Court The story of a real king was a welcome departure from the self-made royals of modern India-the politicians (“Crowning Glory”, June 10). India is known around the world as the land of maharajas but sadly we are forgetting our history while Britain continues to accord privileged status to its royalty. NANDITA THAKUR, Nadiad The Other Half It is a relief to know that from now on men can be equally responsible for containing a family (“The Male Initiative”, June 10). In a sense, RISUG spells the actual liberation of women. ANUPAMA RAISANGHANI, on e-mail Messiah of Mute Maneka Gandhi needs to be lauded for her courage and for staying true to her principles in a political world where nothing is constant, certainly not principles (“Custodial Crisis”, June 3). There will come a day when we will recognise that she is far more than a politician- she is a national resource. If not for her, savage humans would be running amok and ruining the world of animals. SANGEETHA LAKSHIMI-NARAYANAN, Bangalore Maneka Gandhi’s idea of enforcing the rules of the Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) is ridiculous. In the new era, rules that are almost four decades old are obsolete. It is clear that Gandhi is doing all she can to remain in the limelight. She does not realise that the purpose of experiments on animals is for the betterment of human beings and not to exercise cruelty on them. ANSHU MATHUR, Ahmedabad Since most diseases result from a faulty lifestyle or bad eating habits, why should animals suffer in the search for a cure for these man-made ills? There is no logic in killing animals in the name of research to develop drugs that will save human beings. We should switch to other alternative systems of treatments where no such experiments are required. If this is not checked in time it will also encourage the cosmetic industry to try such experiments and the poachers to have their way. DR RAJIV CHOPRA, Dehradun advertisementadvertisementClan PrerogativeYour article on 50 years of my ascension to the throne covered the event honestly and was visually very pleasing with excellent photographs (“Crowning Glory”, June 10). Unfortunately, when it comes to covering traditional India the media invariably highlights the trivia – the “chiffons and diamonds” – and the exotica – the “pomp and pageantry” with marginalising sidelines like “Indira Gandhi made them relics of the Raj.” The point here is that she may have pulled the official ceremonial red carpet from under our feet but the Gaddi of the clan is very much our own business. Incidentally, contrary to what the article says, my ascension to it was recognised in 1952 by the then President Rajendra Prasad and accordingly I was recognised as a ruler as defined in the Indian Constitution. The privy purses, the official perks and the privileges went with the XXVIth Amendment to the Constitution but the centuries-old Gaddi of the Rathores will remain till such time as the clan and brotherhood will it and with it the social customs, our lifestyles and order of doing things. GAJSINGH, Jodhpur Passion Play With a budget of RS 50 crore, Devdas is the most expensive movie in the history of Bollywood (“Devdas: Bollywood’s Biggest Gamble”, May 20). One must not be surprised at the cost as the investment is not purely in terms of money but also in art and creativity. Devdas could open up new vistas in an industry that is addicted to schmaltzy love stories. RAKESH MOHAPATRA, Bhubaneswar Sanjay Leela Bhansali should be lauded and not criticised for the huge budget of Devdas because unless we pump in money we cannot be the best in any field-perhaps the reason why we lag in the fields of entertainment and sports vis-a-vis developed nations. HIPPU KANUNGO, Cuttack Learning by Rut Our entire system needs to be faulted for the board examination stress: students who do not fare well are shunned in society, they do not get admission into good colleges and lose out on career openings that a prestigious college offers (“Board Games”, May 20). Even at the high school level, those not doing well are denied the subjects of their choice for Class XI. Some schools even refuse re-admission to Class XI. Parents too have become ambitious. Everyone forgets that a three-hour examination is not the only way in which a student can be judged. MAHESH KUMAR, Delhiadvertisementlast_img read more

Insolvency bill passed by Parliament

first_imgNew Delhi, May 12 (PTI) Parliament today passed a bill that seeks to create time-bound processes for insolvency resolution of companies and individuals. Insolvency is a situation where an individual or a company is unable to repay their outstanding debt. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code Bill was approved by the Rajya Sabha by voice vote after a brief debate. The Lok Sabha had passed it on March 5. Replying to a debate on the bill, Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha termed it as a “historic” legislation. The minister allayed apprehensions about the possibility of declaration of repeated bankruptcy by individuals and companies saying creditors will not park their money again and again with such individuals and entities. “We are changing the Indian economy. We will do so while protecting the people who matter most…The most vulnerable are protected first. The way this law is being set up, it protects the workers. We wanted to protect the most. vulnerable. We are trying to create a robust safety note,” Sinha said. With the passage of this law, there would be one law dealing with bankruptcy while doing away with at least 12 different legislations, some of which are centuries old. The government expects that the new framework is expected help in improving Indias position in the World Banks ease of doing business ranking. According to the provisions of the bill, these processes will be completed within 180 days. If insolvency cannot be resolved, the assets of the borrowers may be sold to repay creditors, according to PRS legislative research. Congress member T Subbarami Reddy, who had moved more than a dozen amendments did not press for them citing time constraint and the bill passed without any amendment. The bankruptcy bill was introduced in Lok Sabha on December 21, 2015 and was later referred to the Joint Committee of Parliament. The Committee submitted its recommendations and a modified Code based on its suggestions on April 28, 2016. This modified Code was passed by Lok Sabha on May 5, 2016.

Europe Leads Ryder Cup, 5-3

first_imgGLENEAGLES, Scotland — For the first time in eight years, Europe is ahead after the first full day of play at the Ryder Cup.Europe grabbed a 5-3 lead after Sept. 26th’s two sessions at Gleneagles — even though big guns Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter contributed only half a point.But it was an improbable half point that felt like a win, gave the home side a momentum boost and could prove decisive in the final outcome as Europe bids for its eighth victory in 10 Ryder Cups.”We’ve seen in the Ryder Cups over the years how important momentum switches are and how it can really have a domino effect,” European captain Paul McGinley said.“So when the surge came from America at the end of the session this morning, for our guys to react as well as they did in all four matches, shows real strength of character.”The last time the Europeans led after the opening day was at the K Club in Ireland in 2006. They went on to win 18 ½-9 ½. The Americans led after the first full day in each of the last three Ryder Cups.Trailing the United States 2 ½-1 ½ after the morning fourballs, the Europeans won three of the alternate-shot matches in the afternoon. More dramatic was the late rally by McIlroy and Garcia, who came from two shots down with two to play to halve with Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker.McIlroy made a 30-foot birdie putt at the 17th and Garcia hit a beautiful approach from the rough on the 18th to set up another birdie. “That was probably as good as a win, to come back from where they were,” McGinley said.The No. 1-ranked McIlroy and No. 3 Garcia had lost their fourballs match in the morning, beaten 1-up by Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley. Until the late comeback, it looked like McIlroy would become the first No. 1 player to lose two Ryder Cup matches on the same day since Tiger Woods in 2002.“Sergio and I battled for all 36 holes out there today,” McIlroy said. “It was a long day for both of us, and just glad that we were able to contribute something to the cause today.”He called the half-point a “mini-victory.”“It definitely is a huge halve in terms of momentum for the European team going into tomorrow,” McIlroy said. “It was huge. For Sergio and I, it’s just nice to be able to walk away from today with at least something.”The afternoon began with Lee Westwood and Jamie Donaldson pulling Europe level by beating Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar 2 up. Westwood, playing in his ninth Ryder Cup, enjoyed his role as mentor to the Welsh rookie.“I love it, kind of watching somebody take to it like a duck to water,” he said.Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson won their second match of the day, beating Hunter Mahan and Zach Johnson 2 and 1. Rose said he wouldn’t complain if he’s picked to play in both sessions again on Sept. 27.“There’s so many good players on this team but you can only field eight a day,” he said. “So if that’s what’s called of us, we’ll be up for it.”Graeme McDowell and French rookie Victor Dubuisson secured the final point, defeating Mickelson and Bradley 3 and 2. It’s the first time Mickelson and Keegan have lost together in the Ryder Cup after four straight wins.“Very fortunate to be playing alongside a player who I think really is Europe’s next superstar,” McDowell said of the 24-year-old Dubuisson, the youngest player on the team. “I really believe that. He was awesome today. He didn’t miss a shot.”In the morning, the Americans seemed to strike a big psychological blow by taking down McIlroy and Poulter. Three rookies played a huge part in the U.S. effort.In a stunning performance, 21-year-old Jordan Spieth and 24-year-old Patrick Reed — the youngest pairing in Ryder Cup history — beat Poulter and Scottish rookie Stephen Gallacher 5 and 4.U.S. captain Tom Watson had singled out Poulter as the one player the Americans wanted to target — even more than McIlroy. Poulter had won seven consecutive Ryder Cup matches and was the catalyst of Europe’s remarkable comeback in Medinah two years ago. This was Poulter’s heaviest ever Cup defeat.“We couldn’t manage to get it done today, so it’s a shame,” said the Englishman, who went without a single birdie. “We don’t hole enough putts, that simple.”Watson said he was proud of his rookies, but decided not to send them out for the afternoon foursomes, something which proved to be a mistake. “I said, ‘I know you’re going to be mad at me, but you’ll be playing tomorrow for sure,’” Watson said.(STEPHEN WILSON, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Southern Africas food crisis worsens with over 14 million people now in

Just back from a two-week mission to southern Africa, James T. Morris announced that an additional 1.6 million people in the region are in urgent need of food aid and other humanitarian assistance over the next seven months, bringing the total to 14.4 million. “These new figures confirm what the team and I witnessed during our mission: the humanitarian crisis is not only devastatingly real, it is also worsening faster than was originally projected,” said Mr. Morris, who led a team of technical experts in assessing the problem. “This crisis must be an absolute top priority for the international community.” Officials blame the increasing numbers on limited supplies of maize. Because food imports have been lower than originally projected, prices have soared across the board. In addition, policies on critical issues such as market liberalization and land reform, which are leading to greater food insecurity, have yet to be resolved by governments. Underlying the food crisis is the untold tragedy of families who are being destroyed by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, according to the UN. The situation is characterized by elderly grandparents caring for children and orphans. The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reports that the pandemic is causing the number of orphans to rise dramatically, to 4.2 million in the six worst-affected countries. “This is a very, very different crisis than anything we’ve seen before – HIV/AIDS is laying siege to entire communities, decimating the workforce and putting an even heavier strain on already over-burdened and weak healthcare systems,” Mr. Morris said. The UN has received 36 per cent of the $507 million it requested for food aid to southern Africa. On the non-food side, however, only $12 million has been pledged, and the world body is warning that without funding for urgently needed supplies, the risk of disease outbreak and a prolongation of the crisis will be inevitable. read more

Mens hockey Late goals provided momentum in Game One against Michigan

Ohio State players celebrate after a goal by junior forward Kevin Miller. Credit: Nick Clarkson | Lantern reporterGoals within the final minute of periods have the ability to build momentum, and Ohio State took advantage by netting two of them.On Friday night, the Buckeyes (17-8-6, 8-6-1-1) defeated the Michigan Wolverines (9-17-3, 2-11-2-2) by a score of 4-2. While the Wolverines took the early lead, it was a breakthrough by OSU senior forward David Gust that swung the momentum of the game in favor of the Buckeyes.An interference penalty late in the first period on Michigan defenseman Joseph Cecconi provided the first of the influential power play goals.Sophomore forward Dakota Joshua attacked the net with a powerful wrist shot that deflected off of Michigan goalie Jack Lafontaine. Simultaneously, Gust set himself up in front of goal to put in the rebound with a backhand shot with less than a second left in the first period.In the second period, a late power-play goal by senior forward Nick Schilkey increased the Buckeyes’ lead to two goals. Schilkey set himself up for a rebound similar to Gust and put the puck in net with six seconds left. His 24th goal of the season turned out to be the final tally in the game.Coaches preach to their players that the final two minutes of every period are the most crucial times in a game, and OSU’s Steve Rohlik reaffirmed that message.“It was a difference in the game,” he said. “You score with 0.1 and six seconds left, it’s a heartbreaker for the other team.”The momentum these types of goals create were evident in the flow of the game. Following Gust’s tally, the Buckeyes picked up two quick second-period goals from junior forward Kevin Miller.“Getting (Gust’s late goal) gets us back in the hockey game and you want to build off of late goals like that one,” Joshua said. “We most certainly did coming out and getting those two goals in the second period.”Miller did not focus on his two quick goals, but rather the momentum Gust’s goal had heading into the first break.“You see it all the time in hockey. If there’s a late goal in a period, it really has some momentum heading into the intermission,” said Miller.For the team, OSU will look to carry the momentum gained from Friday’s game into Saturday’s rematch with Michigan. Puck drop is at 5 p.m. for their final regular season matchup with the Wolverines. read more

Save your property in Greece

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Hundreds of thousands of properties that haven’t been declared to the Greece Land Registry will be placed in the ownership of the Greek State starting from 2015. The news comes as a concern for numerous Greeks of third and fourth generations in the diaspora, who have been cut off from their homeland, not having declared properties they have inherited in Greece to the Land Registry. The properties in focus are so called “properties of the unknown owner”, the land registration of which started in 1997-1999 in 340 locations throughout Greece. In most regions of Greece registration of rights over the property – land, fields, houses and apartments and other – started two decades ago, with the system of the Land Registry, the Hellenic National Cadastre. Owners are asked to register what belongs to them and in what percentage – if it is their own or if it belongs to other persons as well, like their siblings. Each time property is registered with the Land Registry, the owner is asked to justify and demonstrate how it was acquired, if it was bought, inherited or acquired in any other way. “In every region of Greece, the cadastre services – the recording of real estate – starts at a different time. From the moment the start of the process is announced in one region, the owners have three months – or six months if they are permanent residents abroad – to declare their property. “Once the deadline has passed, corrections and objections can be made to the initial declaration, in cases when something has been declared wrong. After a final presentation of the rights, the property is registered within Cadastre books,” lawyer for Inheritances, Estates and Real Estate in Greece John Tripidakis told Neos Kosmos. “If the property is not declared, it is stated as that of the “unknown owner”. In this case, the owner is threatened to lose it and the Greek State subsequently gets the ownership over it. Specifically, if an area has started land registration before 2008, then those who have not declared their properties have a period of 12 years from that day – or 14 if they are permanent residents abroad – to claim and prove that this land or house belongs to them. But if a site has started land registration after 2008, then the deadline is 5 years and 7 years for foreign residents,” Mr Tripidakis said. Currently, a risk of losing their properties in 2015 threatens those who own properties in 20 regions and districts of Greece where the deadline for final safeguard of the rights expires in 2015 and 2017 for residents abroad, for example in the areas of Thessaloniki, Arcadia, Argolida, Kavala and Drama. Other 92 locations throughout Greece will enter the ‘red zone’ in 2016, and in 2018 for foreign residents. These relate to eight locations in Attica and eight locations in Thessaloniki, while the list also includes cities like Patras, Kalamata and New Aghialos, and islands of Patmos, Sifnos and Syros. The properties that haven’t been registered with old Land Registry programs come to around 200,000. Of those, 160,000 are land and 40,000 residential or commercial properties. With margins narrowing, Mr Tripidakis advises the owners to properly declare what belongs to them in Greece, instead of loosing it forever. “Anyone with property in Greece is required to declare it to the Cadastral Office of the area. Those who have not declared their properties at all are in danger of loosing them. You should immediately arrange to declare your property in Greece – or if you have already done it, make sure that they are properly recorded in the Cadastre,” he said. Once the property is in the ownership of the Greek state, owners can seek their legal rights and appeal in court, but only to claim financial compensation and not to repossess the property.last_img read more

Crews fighting wildfire near Ellensburg

first_imgELLENSBURG — A wildfire that burned sagebrush and grass south of Ellensburg in central Washington was about 80 percent contained by Friday morning.Debbie Robinson at the state Department of Natural Resources say the blaze held overnight to about 4,000 acres, or six square miles. It was reported Thursday night.Robinson says there were lightning strikes in the area recently, but the cause of the fire is under investigation. No homes are threatened.Crews of about 90 people planned to work Friday to verify the perimeter of the blaze, improve lines around it and tackle hotspots. A section of eastbound Interstate 82 was closed for about three hours Thursday night due to the smoky fire in the Manastash Ridge area. It reopened when the fire was no longer close to the roadway.last_img read more

Volvos US manufacturing operations are more human than machine

first_img Volvo Tags More From Roadshow Comment Volvo 30 Photos Volvo is the most recent car company to begin assembling its vehicles in the US. On Sept. 6, 2018, the Swedish automaker rolled its first S60 sedan out of a new factory in Ridgeville, South Carolina, roughly 30 miles northwest of Charleston. The 2.3 million square-foot facility, Volvo’s first car-assembly plant in North America, will eventually turn out 150,000 vehicles per year, after the next-generation 2021 XC90 SUV comes online.Right now, though, the plant is operating at about one-third of capacity, which gives Volvo some wiggle room to invite members of the media like me — with absolutely zero auto-manufacturing experience — onto an active production line to help assemble a car. That makes me one of only a few people outside of Volvo to get this level of access. I hope I don’t mess anything up.Enlarge ImageThe new Volvo factory in South Carolina sits on 1,600 lush acres. Volvo Pre-assembly jittersThis isn’t my first tour of an automobile factory, but today is different. This time, as I amble along the wide aisles tracing through Volvo’s fresh factory floors, I’m more excited than usual, but also nervous as I contemplate what’s at stake. After shelling out for a home, a new car is typically a consumer’s second-largest expense. This is important.By the end of this particular production day, Volvo has plans to roll 216 finished S60 sedans off the line. Suddenly, that target becomes a little more difficult as an instrumental rendition of Van Halen’s “Jump” erupts from a nearby assembly station. Someone has pulled the Andon Cord that runs parallel with all stages of production. The hanging yellow cable is a way to notify management that there’s a problem.It turns out the line has run out of a single component, necessitating a 10-minute production stoppage while supplies are replenished. This issue stems from the fact that warehousing parts on-site is incredibly expensive, according to Anders Gustafsson, CEO of Volvo Cars in the Americas. “We are a normal family, you know. We have problems, too,” Gustafsson candidly tells me later in an interview.2019 Volvo S60 on South Carolina Production LineEnlarge ImageIt doesn’t help my nervousness that the S60 is a darn-pretty sedan. Volvo This supply issue is one of many challenges, but a necessary evil in order to control costs. There’s a silver lining to this interruption, though. It buys me time before I have to work on the line myself, thus delaying my potential to make a mess of things.As I swivel my head around just before noon on a Friday, none of the Volvo employees seem concerned about my abilities, or the obvious lack thereof. Instead, I see lots of smiles riding a wave of what I sense is good morale. Continuing to take stock of my surroundings, amid the state-of-the-art robotics, I notice the aisles are wider than other factories I’ve toured. Sure, automation continues its march toward further displacing humans on vehicle production lines, but as I peer about, I get the impression that the money saved on the supply side of operations is being invested on human capital, instead.Volvo Marshmallow Car Training ExerciseEnlarge ImageAs I make a fool of myself power-walk-racing around Volvo’s training center, I’m actually learning about improving manufacturing efficiencies. Volvo Outside-the-box trainingThis investment is evident through the abbreviated training I receive all morning leading up to my time on the floor. My assembly education begins with a safety lesson, but things get interesting when the marshmallows and coffee stir sticks come out. Rather than head to the parking lot to fire up some s’mores, my class (consisting entirely of journalists) is flung into an educational exercise. We’re grouped into three racing teams made up of three people each: one driver, one pit chief and one official to help us keep the other teams honest. The pit person constructs a racecar out of the marshmallows and sticks. It’s then my turn to take that vehicle and pretend-race it against the other “drivers,” making a mad power-walk around the upper floor of Volvo’s training facility. As soon as the figurative green flag is waived, I’m encouraged to let loose with sound effects. Jumping to the front of the pack, I oblige by making obnoxiously loud tire-squealing noises in corners and engine revving wails on the straights. Right before I have to pit to get my battery (a big marshmallow in the middle of the “car”) swapped, I’m still in first place. After a much-too-long pit stop, I’m in last place, unable to regain ground from the lengthy “battery” change.It would be funny if Volvo was solely using this race to make fun of the media, but this is actually how the automaker trains new line workers. The team-building and conviviality inherent in assembling and racing marshmallow cars is kind of brilliant in that it makes the importance of proper assembly and teamwork evident in a fun way.After the first heat, our instructor (or “racing team sponsor”) sits down with each group to figure out an investment strategy to help shave seconds off the next race. We’re encouraged to think of every possible way to improve before asking for investment parts, which will cost us a time penalty. My team elects to take the maximum investment, choosing to use two cars so that we won’t have to pit at all. A more inventive competing team decides to enter with a two-wheeled marshmallow machine, in order to shorten its pit stop.Happily, my team ends up posting a 58-second improvement in the second heat, earning us the win. But I have to hand it to the two-wheeled team for its out-of-the-box thinking — which is the whole point of this exercise.Volvo Wooden Car Training ExerciseEnlarge ImageI’m all smiles here, but moments earlier, I was feeling the pressure of the assembly line’s march as I rushed to get parts onto the wooden “training wheels” cars. Volvo After racing like our livelihoods depended on it, we’re sent downstairs to a training area filled with wooden cars on a mock production line. Here, we’ll fit components onto the rigs (charmingly labeled “S60”) to practice our assembly-line flow. It’s on this line where new factory workers are encouraged to keep their outside-the-box thinking switched on, so as to invent new efficiencies and workflows for speeding production, ultimately solidifying the point of the earlier race exercise.According to the Volvo plant’s pretrim supervisor, Luciano Vennitti, line workers frequently find new ways of doing things: “A team member sees something and says, ‘Hey, I think there’s a better way to do this. If we add this tool onto this job,’ or, ‘If we’re able to add [component] mutilation protection on this,’ it happens without going through a lot of red tape.””The days of just grabbing parts [and] putting them on — they’re over,” says Kevin Graham,  Volvo’s director of assembly. “They’re not just wrench turners anymore […] so the skill level is just increasingly coming up.”Volvo South Carolina Production LineIt’s daunting, but also so much fun working the machinery that helps install the S60s sunroof. Volvo Did the training work with me?As soon as the line starts back up again, I report to Pre-Trim Section One, Station Eight in full eye protection and high-visibility orange uniform to install a panoramic moonroof on a real 2019 Volvo S60. Guiding me through this process is pretrim team leader Rennie Taylor-Gordon. With all that roof glass sitting before me, Taylor-Gordon’s cool, calm demeanor is the antidote to any uncertainty or nervousness I might feel.I grab hold of the suction-cup component lift machine and drive it over to the waist-high stack of glass. I pick a moonroof off the top and move it onto a jig that spins the 16 or so fasteners that help secure the glass to the roof. After using the jig to move the glass panel through the windshield opening and and home into its roof aperture, I trigger the machine to spin all the fasteners, and voila! The jig gives me all green lights, indicating all fasteners have been screwed in successfully.To avoid frightening any of the workers, I try to restrain my excitement at the green lights, but my “Woo!” is still pretty loud. It may have been a relatively simple task. But with so much at stake, and never having done line work like this before, my success felt genuinely special.Volvo South Carolina Production LineEnlarge ImageConsidering how labor intensive it is to install a replacement sunroof in the real world, the assembly line makes me feel like a superhero when I can fit roof glass into an S60 in under a minute. Volvo Assembly work ain’t easyI’ve always respected auto workers, but after walking in their shoes for an afternoon — we literally had to use job-specific steel-toed shoes in order to gain access to the production floor — I have an even deeper respect for their craft. Not only do I have a more informed appreciation for what it takes to work on an assembly line, I’m now more ardent about every component I touch inside or outside a car, knowing how much hard work, training and experience it takes to put all those parts together.Not just anyone can cut it on the production front lines, so it shows a lot of courage on Volvo’s part to grant me access to a particularly fragile and vulnerable portion of the assembly process.Update, 11:11 a.m. PDT: Clarifies that this is Volvo’s first US car-manufacturing facility, as Volvo Trucks USA had already been building vehicles in Dublin, Virginia.

Sensex Nifty close at record highs Hero Motocorp Wipro Cipla Adani Ports

first_imgA man looks at a screen displaying news of markets update inside the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) building in Mumbai, June 20, 2016.Reuters fileStock markets were on a roll on Friday after a lacklustre trading the previous day in the wake of weak Q4 GDP data. Benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty hit fresh lifetime highs on Friday on the back of bullish projections by brokerages and fairly positive automobile sales for May.The 30-scrip Sensex ended 136 points higher at 31,273, while the NSE Nifty gained 37 points to end at 9,653, marking new closing highs for both the indices. Top gainers were Hero Motocorp, Wipro, Cipla, Adani Ports and Bharti Airtel.Pharma stocks were star performers with the BSE Healthcare index closing 1.12 percent higher, outperforming Sensex’s gain of 0.44 percent. GMR Infrastructure was one of the top gainers on the BSE, ending 13.71 percent higher at Rs 17 after the company declared upbeat Q4 results. The stock hit a fresh 52-week high of Rs 19 intraday before closing lower.Other stocks that hit new 52-week highs included Adani Transmission, Cadila Healthcare, Escorts, Hero Motocorp, IndusInd Bank, Hindustan Unilever, Voltas and LIC Housing Finance.Volume sales reported by automobile sales for May indicate that two-wheeler companies had an upbeat performance, according to brokerage Nirmal Bang Institutional Equities.”Automobile sales in May 2017 were stronger than expected for two-wheeler players because of strong rural as well as marriage season demand. Most two-wheeler original equipment manufacturers or OEMs reported stronger-than-expected growth, either in high single-digits YoY or in double-digits YoY, barring Bajaj Auto which reported 10% YoY decline in two-wheeler sales.In the car segment, the growth momentum continued for most players with Maruti Suzuki India or MSIL reporting 11% YoY growth while Hyundai India and Mahindra & Mahindra or M&M posted single-digit YoY growth in sales.Commercial vehicle or CV sales continued to remain weak, although they improved sharply on MoM basis. Tata Motors reported double-digit 12% YoY decline in CV sales while Ashok Leyland posted 8% YoY decline and VE Commercial Vehicles or VECV registered 21% YoY fall in sales,” Nirmal Bang Institutional Equities said in a note on Friday.On Thursday, foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) were net sellers of Indian equities worth Rs 517 crore, according to provisional data released by the National Stock Exchange (NSE).In related news, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council will be meeting for two days starting on Saturday to finalise tax rates for gold, footwear, textiles and biscuits.last_img read more

Housing Doon students unique initiative

first_imgJayadityavir Singh, a student of The Doon School, Chand Bagh, Dehra Dun has come up with an initiative which uses plastic bottles filled with mud and other wastes instead of bricks for the construction of homes. Titled-Project Plastech, the main focus is to cut down costs of construction in which bricks is an integral part.“In this initiative we fill plastic bottles with any form of sand or waste and then we use these bottles as substitutes for bricks,” said Jayadityavir Singh. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’He reveals that Plastech is an initiative that aims at working towards providing sustainable cost-effective housing from a completely different perspective. This initiative places emphasis on the use of plastic bottles as substitutes for bricks, thereby cutting down total costs by a significant amount. It started for the sole purpose of providing housing cheaply for the underprivileged and the needy. The economic aspect as well as the relative cost cuts serve as great pluses from which this initiative can appeal to the masses.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHe reveals the level of skepticism he had to face regarding this project, he said: “Yes, we tend to have a large amount of skeptics when we describe our technology, but as you continue to read and see our various projects, it will be clear that we, indeed, know what we’re talking about. This initiative has several other advantages, the use of plastic bottles mean there will be a significant reduction of bricks being baked, minimising the carbon dioxide emissions.” A great problem faced by farmers and agriculturists in our country today is the lack of top soil cover in states to provide adequate incomes for farmers and people related with agriculture in India as a whole. This is primarily due to majority of farmers selling off top soil to brick kilns. These kilns require top clay soil in order to bake bricks, but this has adverse affects on the  yieldsof the land.It tends to amplify into butterfly effect hampering the productivity per hectare of farmers all around the country and obviously pushes the productivity of the country backward in terms of yields per hectare.last_img read more
