Amnesty International chief urges Sri Lanka to halt plans to execute 18

Amnesty also launched an online petition against the use of the death penalty in Sri Lanka. More than four decades ago, your country stopped the implementation of this ultimate, cruel, in human and degrading punishment, becoming one of the few South Asian countries to do so. The death penalty is now only applied by a shrinking minority of countries around the world. In December 2018, Sri Lanka was among the 121 states that voted in favour of a resolution on the “Moratorium on the use of the death penalty” at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly. Only 35 states voted against the resolution.Implementing the death penalty for drug-related offences is unlawful. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Sri Lanka is a state party, restricts the use of the death penalty – in countries that have not yet abolished it – to the “most serious crimes”, or intentional killing.Executions are never the solution. As criminologists have extensively demonstrated, including in studies for the United Nations, the death penalty has no unique deterrent effect. If we look around the world, there are many examples that bear this out. Consider the contrast between Hong Kong and Singapore, two similar-sized cities. Hong Kong stopped executing people more than half a century ago, while Singapore continues to implement the death penalty. The murder rate in the two cities has stayed remarkably similar over the decades. Amnesty International has urged Sri Lanka to halt plans to execute 18 people.Kumi Naidoo, Secretary General of Amnesty International issued an open letter to the President of Sri Lanka opposing the proposed resumption of executions in Sri Lanka. In October 2018, the Malaysian Government announced that it would be abolishing the death penalty – a country that also relied on executions to combat drug use.Mr. President, you have favourably cited the example of the Philippines, but it abolished the death penalty in 1987. Under President Rodrigo Duterte, what the country has seen instead is a horrific wave of extrajudicial executions of suspected drug offenders over the past three years. As Amnesty International has documented, far from ridding the streets of crime, this murderous campaign has claimed the lives of more than 4,000 people – including dozens of children – in what may amount to crimes against humanity. The killings, which overwhelmingly targeted people living in impoverished neighbourhoods, are currently the subject of a preliminary examination by the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court.Putting your own people to death is an irreversible act. There is no coming back from a flawed judicial process. The punishment is absolute. The mistakes are irredeemable. When it comes to the death penalty, a coerced ‘confession’, the bias of a judge, the failure to collect evidence, or an inadequate legal defence can lead to someone innocent paying the ultimate price. When it comes to extrajudicial executions, there is not even a pretence of due process. Establish an official moratorium on executions, with a view to abolishing the death penalty, in line with seven resolutions adopted by the UN General Assembly since 2007, including most recently resolution 73/175 which Sri Lanka supported;We hope that you will consider these recommendations.Yours sincerelyKumi NaidooSecretary GeneralAmnesty International Your ExcellencyI am writing to plead for the lives of prisoners who may soon be put to death if executions resume in Sri Lanka. Lastly, but most importantly, the death penalty is immoral. For those of us who believe that human life must hold the highest value, taking it away is the lowliest act. We understand this clearly when a person commits murder, but we choose to forget it when the state puts someone to death, inflicting the same pain and loss. Executions, Mr. President, are not a show of strength but an admission of weakness. They represent the failure to create a society where the protection of the right to life triumphs over the temptations of vengeance.Amnesty International urges you to:Immediately halt plans to execute 18 people, and review all cases of people under sentence of death with a view to commuting their sentences to terms of imprisonment; OPEN LETTER BY KUMI NAIDOO ON THE DEATH PENALTY Even in countries that retain the death penalty, there is a growing recognition that the death penalty is not an effective deterrent for drug-related crimes. The Islamic Republic of Iran has long been one of the world’s most prolific executioners. It has put to death thousands of people after convicting them of drug trafficking in grossly unfair trials. But drug trafficking and distribution remains rife, according to the Iranian government. “The truth is, the execution of drug smugglers has had no deterrent effect,” as Mohammad Baqer Olfat, Iran’s deputy head of judiciary for social affairs, conceded in 2016. Iran has now relaxed its drug laws and commuted hundreds of death sentences for people convicted of drug-related offences. read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse hosts three teams in Midwest Lacrosse Classic

Credit: Miles McQuinn | Lantern PhotographerAfter rediscovering its winning ways on Friday, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team now turns its attention to the Midwest Lacrosse Classic, where it will host Marquette, Bellarmine and Detroit at Ohio Stadium in a weekend full of lacrosse action.OSU senior defender Robby Haus said he is excited to be able to stay home again this weekend and play in the ‘Shoe.“I think any time a team comes to Ohio, we like to think we have an advantage, in terms of we’re going to defend our home turf,” Haus said. The Buckeyes (3-1) have already played Detroit this year — a 16-5 win on Feb. 13 — so instead they’re set to play Marquette on Friday and Bellarmine on Sunday.OSU coach Nick Myers said he has respect for No. 17 Marquette, which is coming into the weekend with a 2-0 record.“I think looking at them on film, it’s a team from their goal all the way through their attack that’s very well coached and very talented,” Myers said. “We’re going to have to play our very best lacrosse.”A point of focus for the Scarlet and Gray will be stopping Marquette senior attacker Conor Gately. He was named to second-team All-Big East last year and is the program’s all-time points leader.Although the team will partly be focusing on Gately and his team, Haus said the predominate focus comes internally.“A lot of our flaws right now that we’re dealing with are just little schematics that can easily be fixed,” Haus said. “So, right now, that’s our main focus — trying to get us better and focus on how we’re going to be the best that we can be as a team.”After playing Marquette, the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on Bellarmine on Sunday.The Knights come into the weekend on a three-game losing streak, which is why OSU senior defender Chris Mahoney said the visitors will be playing with a chip on their shoulders.“I think they’re going to come out with all engines firing,” Mahoney said. “They certainly have to prove themselves, as we do, too.”Mahoney, however, said he believes his team is up to the task.“We haven’t had a demanding win yet I think, and I know our team can put out a lot more,” Mahoney said. “I’m really looking forward to our team clicking offensively and defensively and everywhere in between.”Myers had high words of praise for Bellarmine and said he looked forward to a weekend full of lacrosse.“They’re very gritty. I think they’ll be extremely motivated on Sunday,” Myers said. “I think you’re going to see some very close lacrosse games this weekend.”Two-game weekendThis is scheduled to be the first time this season the Scarlet and Gray have had to play two games in one weekend. Even so, Mahoney said OSU is ready and excited at the prospect.“It’s going to be a jam-packed weekend, and we’re really looking forward to testing our ability to bounce back in two days, back to back,” Mahoney said. “We’re really looking forward to it as a team and getting more players involved.”Two games in three days means the Buckeyes will have to play more players in order to keep legs fresh. Myers said he will rely on some of his players who do not see much time on the field to play a key role.“I think the growth of our young guys at this point of the season has been really solid,” Myers said. “We’re going to need some different guys to step up in both games this weekend to be successful.”Repeat winner OSU junior midfield specialist Jake Withers was named the Big Ten Specialist of the Week on Tuesday for his role in the Buckeyes’ 12-7 win over University of Maryland, Baltimore County last Friday. This is the second time Withers has received the award this year.Withers won 14 faceoffs, including a 9-of-11 mark in the first half, and picked up a game-high and personal season-best of 10 ground balls.Withers has been an essential component of the Buckeyes’ ability to gain a significant advantage in time of possession this year, as he has had the total-game faceoff advantage in all four matches.What’s nextAfter the two games this weekend, OSU is scheduled to travel to Hempstead, New York, on March 12 to face Hofstra. The game is set to begin at noon. read more

Metso Flow Control highlights mining and mineral processing valve expertise

first_imgMetso’s industry-leading crushing and grinding technology status is well known throughout the mining world, but its valves expertise is, perhaps, not as familiar.Complementing both the minerals processing and pump technology the group produces, Metso has been engineering valve solutions for over 90 years. One of the group milestones was the establishment of Neles Oy in 1956, with a focus on Finland’s pulp & paper sector flow control solutions.Neles®has since become a household name across multiple industries, famous for premium engineered metal-seated valve solutions. The company also acquired the Jamesbury® business some decades ago to add a premium-performance soft-seated valve solution to the portfolio.Ville Kähkönen, Director, Industry Management, Metso Flow Control, told IM on site at the company’s Hakkila facility, close to Helsinki-Vantaa airport, Finland, that there is a clear distinction between the two product families.“Jamesbury valves are used in temperatures below 260°C,” he said, adding that the Neles metal-seated valves are the best choice for higher temperatures or when the process media includes abrasive fluids and solids like sand.Touring the facility and hearing from Kähkönen and Heikki Kärki, Industry Manager, Mining & Minerals Processing, Metso Flow Control, IM discovered just how many of these valves have found their way to mining operations around the globe.The company manufactures not only the valves, but also the actuators and smart controllers; a fact that sets it apart from many of its competitors supplying just one or two of these elements.On average, in a minerals processing plant, there can be around 10,000 valve installations across an operation each serving a specific purpose, according to Kärki.He told IM it is not only Metso knife-gate valves – used for isolation purposes in the mill circuit – that are found in the separation and refinery stages of mining operations; the company provides several types of valve solutions that can be tailor made to the specific application.This wide-ranging expertise is reinforced by a quick scan of the number of valve installations Metso has carried out over 2000-2018. During this period, the company’s supplied base has covered all but one continent (Antarctica the exception), with applications across what it terms “slurry, utility and severe services”.In addition to being one of the few companies able to supply the complete valve assembly, including the valve, the actuator and the intelligent valve controller, Metso is rare in having the capability to custom-engineer valves for the harsh, abrasive and acidic conditions that come with autoclave processing. This is a field that has been growing in the nickel, copper and gold space in recent years, Kähkönen said. Standard valves last a matter of weeks in these applications – where pressures can exceed 30 bars, temperatures can exceed 200°C and concentrations can be highly acidic.A materials technology team with decades of experience, plus an on-going relationship with an autoclave manufacturer, has enabled the company to come up with valve solutions offering a robust coating specifically designed to outlast other solutions in the autoclave market.The company was also keen to highlight its digitalisation capabilities within the valves space during the visit.Metso launched its first NP™ series pneumatic positioner already fifty years ago. A digital valve controller – the Neles ND9000 – was introduced by Metso all the way back in 1995 and, since the launch of this product, the company has established smart controllers that collect data to be analysed by Metso’s in-house team or the client themselves, the latest being its Neles NDX® controller.These controllers have gained such a reputation that other valve manufacturers regularly acquire them to complement their own valve solutions.Hakkila, which focuses on the Neles engineered valves and intelligent positioners, is one of several Metso valve technology centres worldwide. Its Shrewsbury factory, in Massachusetts, in the US, caters to demand for the Jamesbury valves, while its Horgau, Germany, facility specialises in high performance Neles butterfly valves.Chungju, in South Korea, looks after Neles globe valves, and its two plants in the Mumbai area, India, concentrate on Jamesbury EasyFlow valves and Neles scotch yoke actuators manufacturing for the India and global markets.On top of this, it has a second US facility in Minnesota (Fergus Falls), a service and supply centre in Brazil (Sorocaba), a technology hub in Shanghai, China, which manufactures standard Neles and Jamesbury products globally and provides service in the region, and a technology centre in Jiaxing, China, set to open next year.Annually, Metso delivers around 400 000 valves to different process industries. Additionally, Metso completes over 20,000 valve overhauls and 3,000 site visits. It also carries out over 250 major planned valve shutdowns a year – an element that is important to ensure valves keep working for as long as possible.And, the company has recently enhanced its valves manufacturing process with the ability to use 3D printing in certain valve components. This is a process offering previously unavailable engineering options that can, for example, improve some of the design features and decrease the weight of valve components.last_img read more

Just 12 Christian Brothers convicted after 870 allegations

first_imgRape Crisis Centre 1800 778 888Towards Healing 1800 303 416Connect 1800 477 477One in Four 01-6624070The Samaritans 1850 60 9090 First posted at 11.14am Updated at 11.08pmSINCE JANUARY 1975, a total of 870 allegations of sexual abuse have been made about 325 Christian Brothers.In the same period, 12 convictions have been secured against offenders.The greatest concentration (about 70 per cent) of alleged incidences of abuse relate to a 20-year period from 1956 to 1975, the darkest period in the Congregation’s history.All allegations of abuse against Brothers have been disclosed to gardaí and PSNI. Of the 325 men accused, 145 are dead, 130 have left the Congregation and 50 are still living members.The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland’s review of the province was published today and found that safeguarding practices and child protection structures have improved since failures were acknowledged in 2009.In a statement, the Christian Brothers said: they accept that a “deficit existed in the past and they deeply regret the hurt that this causes”.“We want to learn from the mistakes of the past and to create a safe environment for all children and young adults. By developing robust child protection measures and inviting the National Board to independently assess these, we aim to continuously enhance child protection safeguards so that the mistakes of the past may never be repeated,” they continued.The NBSCCCI said the files they read left them in no doubt that a “great number of children were seriously abused by Brothers”.However, it noted that it was not its remit to deal with historical issues but to review current practice and management of risk.To this end, the Christian Brothers said: “The Congregation accepts in full the National Board’s recommendations on how to further enhance safeguarding measures for the future. Half of the Board’s recommendations have already been implemented or are nearing completion and work on the remaining elements is underway.”Reviewers found that until “relatively recently, the internal Church processes within the Christian Brothers were not carried out, much to the detriment of both complainants and accused Brothers”.But there are now “clear protocols in place for Brothers with allegations and accusations”. The NBSCCCI noted the gravity of the challenge faced by those responding to the hurt caused by the abuse.Before 1997, 92 allegations of abuse were received but between 1998 and 2013, 794 allegations were made.“It is evident that the volume of allegations placed overwhelming pressure on the structures designed to address child protection concerns within the Province,” the report explains.Of the 325 Brothers against whom allegations were made, 50 are alive and live as part of the European Province of Christian Brothers. Reviewers says they believe it is safer for children for the accused to remain as part of the community where safety plans can be put in place. It notes that the accused men who have left the congregation and who have not been convicted are no monitored and supervised.Current make-up of the BrothersReviewers were informed that the Christian Brothers’ membership in Ireland now stands at 267 and the average age is 74 years old. There are no new brothers in formation and the Province’s historical base in Ireland has reduced substantially.There has also been a significant shift in the Christian Brothers work with children and young people in Ireland, which is a fractio n of what it was thirty years ago.The Brothers had closed all of the industrial schools between 1954 and 1974. In 2008, declining numbers of Brothers and an aging membership forced the Province to move out of direct education provision, transferring responsibility for the network of mainstream schools.Reporting of allegations now occurs promptly and a positive working relationship exists between them and the HSE.There were some negatives recorded about current practices, including the recording of safeguarding procedures. The board recommended separate files for safeguarding which can be kept alongside legal or litigation documents.It was also unclear from files if Brothers were removed from ministry once an allegation was made, as per the stated policy of the Province leadership.The Brothers were also told to consider a more pastoral response to allegations which would include meeting victims and hearing their experiences.For more from the fourth tranche of reports:Diocese of Down and Connor met 46 of 48 child safety objectivesAccused ‘Kiltegan Fathers’ on African missions “afforded too much tolerance”Diocese of Kerry dealt with 67 allegations of abuse about 21 priestsArchbishop of Cashel and Emly praised for speedy reaction to abuse claimsDiocese of Down and Connor met 46 of 48 child safety objectivesHelplines: last_img read more

A boost from the 132 plate but overall drop of 64 per

first_imgTHERE WAS A drop of 6.4 per cent in the number of new cars licensed in 2013, compared to the previous 12 months, according to the latest figures from the Central Statistics Office.Despite a boost in the middle of the year coinciding with the introduction of the new ’132′ registration plate, just 71,348 private cars were licensed, compared to 76,256 last year.There was a corresponding increase in the number of imported used cars licensed — rising 29.4 per cent to 49,762.Director General of car dealers’ body the SIMI Alan Nolan said that, though 2013 had been a poor year, it would have been far worse without the new number plate system.“Car sales recovered in the second half of the year after a slow first half with July, the first month of the new dual plate, up 160% on the previous July,” Nolan said.He said that, in spite of the low level of new car sales, there was an increase in employment in the sector, with 1,000 new jobs created. Nolan also pointed to an increase in activity on forecourts so far this year, “which may be a result of pent up demand from people holding off buying last year”.Licensing differs from registration in that a vehicle is only considered officially licensed when a valid motor tax disc is issued for it. ‘Registration’ happens when a vehicle gets its licence plate (registration number) for the first time.Licensing data is considered a better true reflection of car sales: in some cases a vehicle may be registered by a dealership in advance of a sale, whereas, typically, vehicles are only licensed at the point of sale.Read: Here’s how the 132 number plate did in its first 13 daysVideo : Motoring industry explains reasons for new number plates>last_img read more

The Justice Department requested the question be added back to the questionnaire so it can enforce the Voting Rights Act with a better count of voting-age citizens. But New York and other states are alleging that adding the question is unconstitutional because it would undermine the government’s constitutional responsibility of counting every person living in the U.S. every 10 years.Their complaint also alleges that the addition of a citizenship question violates the Administrative Procedure Act because there are sufficient citizenship numbers already to enforce the Voting Rights Act and the change does not meet the Census Bureau’s own standards for testing new questions.last_img read more

Rupee depreciation not always leads to export growth EEPC

first_imgKolkata: Contrary to popular belief that rupee depreciation helps exporters, currency volatility not always brings benefits for the fraternity, EEPC India said Monday. “Our view has been that it is a stable currency that helps exporters, providing them with predictability of dealing with the buyers. Any fluctuation and volatility on either side does not help,” EEPC India chairman Ravi Sehgal said in a release. Engineering Export Promotion Council of India (EEPC) said the country’s engineering export growth shrunk to single digit at 9.4 per cent in July, from sharp increases in the previous few months even as the rupee was depreciating against the US dollar during the month. It was a demonstration that a stronger dollar is not the only growth driver and does not always lead to export momentum, EEPC India said in an internal study recently. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life “Rupee depreciated more in July (6.56 per cent) as compared to June (5.19 per cent). But did exports grow at a higher rate and was there a currency depreciation advantage? No, exports in July this year expanded at a lesser pace of 9.37 per cent than 14.17 per cent in June. The dollar appreciation, conversely, is also making the raw material for exports expensive,” EEPC officials said. The rupee strengthened by 23 paise in early trade Monday to 70.77 against the US dollar. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed EEPC officials said the key lies in improving the domestic efficiency levels so that the cost of production is brought down. Engineering exports had grown by 18.92 per cent in April, 2018, 14.59 per cent in May, 14.17 per cent in June and 9.37 per cent in July, a release said. EEPC pointed out that the best thing in the interest of exporters is a stable currency. In any case, the present depreciation of rtupee should get a contextual perspective that it is not the Indian currency alone which has lost ground against the US dollar.last_img read more

Sylvester Stallone Turned Down an Enormous Sum so That he Could Star

first_imgRocky Balboa is a cultural hero, an icon representing the underdog beating the odds and succeeding in following his dreams. His story initially tells of the long shot fight against the “Master of Disaster” boxing star Apollo Creed. Rocky loses by a decision in his first bout but ultimately wins thanks to his unrelenting passion and manages to turn from “nobody” into “somebody”.The original movie won three Oscars out of nine nominations and made 200 million dollars at the box office.As amazing as this movie is, the story behind making it is truly inspiring.Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa and Talia Shire as Adrian in Rocky. (Photo by John Springer Collection/CORBIS/Corbis via Getty Images)Sylvester Stallone did not have it all throughout his life. His unique way of speaking and look to his face were a result of complications at birth that caused him nerve damage.He did not grow up in a stable family environment, with his parents fighting much of the time. Stallone and his brother Frank were therefore put into foster care.Before starting high school, the brothers came back to their home in Philadelphia. However, Stallone’s unstable childhood had left a strong mark on his psychological well-being.Stallone at the Ken Norton / Duane Bobick boxing match in 1977.He continued to struggle with school work and got expelled from different schools.During his teenage years, he discovered his passion for art which served to express things he was going through on the inside.He decided he wanted to try himself out as an actor at 18 years old.

And what I saw was pretty extraordinary. I saw a man called ‘The Bayonne Bleeder’ fight the greatest fighter who ever lived. And for one brief moment, this supposed stumblebum turned out to be magnificent. And he lasted and knocked the champ down. I thought if this isn’t a metaphor for life.”Actor Sylvester Stallone in Rocky Balboa.After witnessing the match Stallone started working on his own script about Rocky, that proved to be a materialization of Stallone’s own path in life. He finished the script of 90 pages in an astonishing three days.Rocky Balboa Statue in Philadelphia. Sylvester Stallone donated the bronze monument to the city.Sometime later, Stallone went to a casting call for a movie for which he was once again not a good fit as people were usually keen to hire already established names.However, on the way out he pitched his screenplay to the producers that agreed to read it.They loved his idea but did not want to have him as the lead role, so they instead offered him $360,000 for the script. An enormous sum in those days.Stallone signing autographs during the filming of Rocky Balboa.In his situation of utter financial insecurity, this offer was more than appealing. However, Stallone did not yield and decided to not settle on anything less than a lead role, no matter the money.The producers finally relented but decided to finance the movie only with 1 million dollars, a meager amount even at the time. But it allowed Stallone to act as Rocky.Rocky statueThe movie was shot fast, filming most of the footage in one takes in order to save film rolls. Stallone’s wife worked as a set photographer and extras worked for fried chicken.Take a closer look with this video:Gabe Sumner was working as a marketing specialist on the movie. He constructed the whole marketing strategy exactly around the similarities of the life paths of Rocky Balboa and Sylvester Stallone. While doing this he exaggerated many aspects so that people could more readily identify with the real underdog success story.Read another story from us: Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Trash Talking MomentsHowever, even when people found out about this nobody really cared. Rocky was already a cultural hero and Sylvester’s struggle to bring him to the silver screen on his own terms is what gave the movie its heart and soul.

Stolen cobalt60 found in Mexico curious thieves likely doomed

first_imgNo related posts. MEXICO CITY — The day after a load of stolen radioactive material was found in a field, Mexican authorities had formed a perimeter around the area and were measuring for contamination as they planned the recovery process Thursday, according to Mexican news reports.Federal police and soldiers formed a cordon of several hundred yards around the highly radioactive container of cobalt-60, stolen earlier in the week in a carjacking as the material was being moved from a public hospital in the border town of Tijuana to a storage facility in central Mexico, news reports said.The carjackers, who set off international alarm bells by absconding with the material, most likely had no idea what they were stealing and will probably die soon from exposure, Mexican authorities said at the end of a brief national scare.The prospect that material that could be used in a radioactive dirty bomb had gone missing sparked an urgent two-day hunt, which concluded Wednesday afternoon when the cobalt-60, used in hospital radiotherapy machines, was found along with the stolen Volkswagen truck. Mexican officials said no public health risk remained, although one family who lived nearby may have been exposed.The driver of the cargo truck and his assistant worked for a licensed private company, and the lethal radioactive substance was sealed in the back, according to news reports.The truck, equipped with a crane, was nearing its destination early Tuesday morning, several hours before the storage facility opened. While waiting for daybreak at a gas station in the state of Hidalgo, north of Mexico City, the drivers were jumped by two gunmen who beat them and stole the truck, said Mardonio Jiménez, a physicist and high-ranking official with Mexico’s nuclear safety commission.With lethal radioactive material on the loose, Mexican authorities posted a lookout across six states. The International Atomic Energy Agency warned that the material “could be extremely dangerous to a person if removed” from its casing.“I believe, definitely, that the thieves did not know what they had,” Jiménez said. “They were interested in the crane, in the vehicle.”The cobalt-60 was found, removed from its casing, in a rural area near the town of Hueypoxtla, about 25 miles from where the truck was stolen. Jiménez said he suspected that curiosity got the better of the thieves, and they opened the box. So far the carjackers have not been arrested, but authorities expect they will not live long.“The people who handled it will have severe problems with radiation,” he said. “They will, without a doubt, die.”© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Civilians biggest losers on Afghan wars new northern front

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The presence of civilians across the battle zone is one of the main factors hindering the tactics and progress of government forces. Officials say that army operations are hampered not only by poor equipment and lack of air support, but by the presence of the militants in people’s homes, and fears that fighting in rural districts could set fire to the wheat crop now ready for harvest.Provincial police chief Gen. Abdul Sabor Nasrati conceded that “progress is slow.”“To avoid civilian casualties we can’t use heavy artillery and we don’t have air support” since the departure last year of international combat troops as the U.S. and NATO operations moved to a training and support role. “It makes our men on the ground extra careful and slows the operation.”A total of 204 war-wounded were admitted to Kunduz’s only trauma hospital, run by French NGO Medecins Sans Frontieres, between April 24, when the assault kicked off the Taliban’s annual warm-weather offensive, and May 11, said project coordinator Laurent Gabriel. “In just one week, May 11-17, 84 people arrived with war wounds, double the number in the same week last year,” he said. In this Thursday, May 21, 2015 photo, an Afghan refugee woman walks near her tent in a makeshift camp on the outskirts of Kunduz province, north of Kabul, Afghanistan. When the Taliban descended a month ago on Dam Shakh, a hamlet on the wheat-growing plains of northern Afghanistan’s Kunduz province, nobody was prepared. By the time they were beaten back from the provincial capital of Kunduz, more than 100,000 people were forced from their homes and total of 204 war-wounded were admitted to Kunduz’s only trauma hospital, run by French NGO Medecins Sans Frontieres in less than a month. (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul) Patients with chronic pain give advice Comments   Share   Mohammad Aslam welcomes the militiamen into his compound in Al-Chin, which he shared with the families of his five brothers until they found themselves on the front line of the newest war. Half the family compound was destroyed and most of the 40 residents fled. He remains with a couple of his young sons to tend the cows and donkeys tethered under a tree, and the chickens and ducks with their newly-hatched broods.“We fought here for a week alone, we were surrounded, we fought until we ran out of ammunition,” he said.Now as he kicks the charred bricks and wood of a brother’s house, Aslam worries that it will be a long time before lasting peace is assured.Copyright © The Associated Press.

He took three bullets in his left leg — now pinned and hoisted — and one in his right leg.In the opposite bed, 18-year-old policeman Abdullah Raouf is recovering from a May 19 mortar attack in Gor Tepa.

The militias in mufti outnumber the army. Military Humvees and armored police vehicles come and go sporadically, and soldiers sit in watchtowers reinforced with dirt-filled Hesco bags. In the fields, the wheat is cut into sheaves, and the occasional shop opens for the residents who are tentatively making a return to their damaged homes.Residents of villages like Talawka, with 4,000 households and just a few kilometers from the front line at Gor Tepa, are not taking their shaky moment of respite for granted. Local militia groups were drafted for the front-line fight, some of them armed and paid by the provincial authorities. Now they patrol the cleared areas, walking in single file along the mud-brick walls of deserted compounds and through the shimmering wheat fields — their automatic rifles, grenade launchers and machine guns slung over baggy cotton shalwar khameez. KUNDUZ, Afghanistan (AP) — When the Taliban descended a month ago on Dam Shakh, a hamlet on the wheat-growing plains of northern Afghanistan’s Kunduz province, nobody was prepared.“They turned up suddenly and took us completely by surprise,” said resident Ghulam Sakhi of the night of April 24 when hundreds of Taliban militants launched a coordinated attack. “It was horrific. People just started running away as fast as they could and for those who stayed, we were on our own for 10 days. The government just couldn’t cope.” Military and intelligence authorities were equally surprised. Armed gunmen took over homes and used residents as human shields. Army reinforcements didn’t arrive for days and then lacked supplies — ammunition, food, fuel — because of poor logistics, Gov. Mohammad Omer Safi said. As government forces rallied their defenses, the fighting raged for more than two weeks as the militants came within three kilometers (less than 2 miles) of the provincial capital, Kunduz city, Safi said.For now, the city of Kunduz appears secured. A combined force of government troops and hastily recruited militiamen has pushed managed to push back the insurgents to Gor Tepa, some 15 kilometers (12 miles) from Kunduz city, and liberated occupied villages and hamlets such as Talawka and Dam Shakh.But the battle continues and Afghan officials concede it will be slow, bloody work to dislodge the insurgents much further. In the meantime, the region’s civilian population will bear the brunt of living on Afghanistan’s new northern front line. Already more than 100,000 people have been forced from their homes, many renting houses or staying with other families and receiving assistance from U.N. agencies and other charities.

Speculation mounts over new cabinet

first_imgSpeculation continues on Tuesday over who would be in President Nicos Anastasiades’ new cabinet, suggestions that Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides will step down and the president himself saying the body would contains new faces, including women.Director of the President’s Office Michalis Sophocleous in a Facebook post all but confirmed Kasoulides’ retirement, saying “your departure would be a loss for the country.”Sophocleous added, “You are leaving as a gentleman, as you have always been. Cyprus owes you tremendous gratitude.”The comments follow those made by Health Minister Giorgos Pamboridis at Anastasiades’ victory speech on Sunday where he said he felt his time at the helm of his troubled ministry had come to an end and someone else should have the chance to take charge.Meanwhile in an interview with Euronews Anastasiades said “there will be more women, and new individuals.”In the current cabinet there is only one woman, Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou. Anastasiades said the new complement of 11 ministers and the under-ministers in the process of being created will include more women.He said the cabinet will also include people in their 40s and 50s who have already shown a significant contribution over the previous five-year period.When asked about Kasoulides he said he would discuss his plans with him in the coming days.Speculation is rife that he will be replaced by current government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides.Earlier in the day on Tuesday in a statement Anastasiades said he wished to make it clear that “his main concern after his re-election is to define and prioritise a series of actions based on his election programme”.He will deal with the makeup of the new cabinet after planning the policies to tackle the problems and challenges the new government has to face, the statement said.Anastasiades is expected to make an announcement before the new government is sworn in on March 1 as to the new cabinet, but there is no indication at the moment as to when that may be.In the same interview Anastasiades said he planned to call Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci in the coming days.Anastasiades responded to Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu’s statement on Sunday that Greek Cypriots need to “change their mentality” if they want negotiations on the Cyprus issue to resume under UN auspices.The president dismissed changing the basis for negotiations as set by the UN Secretary-General. “Based on Mr Cavusoglu’s statements, there is no clear prospect” in sight, he said.Talking to Akinci would determine whether there was room for “productive dialogue,” said Anastasiades, who intends to contact his Turkish Cypriot counterpart “in a few days,” after the National Council convenes.Anastasiades accused the Turkish and Turkish Cypriot negotiating sides of not budging on their initial positions, and of not responding to the Greek Cypriot side’s proposals during talks in Crans-Montana last summer. Their refusal to compromise on the issue of Turkey’s right to intervene and on the presence of Turkish troops on the island led to “the worst” of “many [such] regressions” from progress achieved, he said, referencing recent news that the Turkish Cypriot side had withdrawn a territorial map submitted to the UN during reunification talks. Anastasiades blamed Ankara’s pressure on the Turkish Cypriot leadership for these backtrackings.Echoing Cavusoglu’s statement on Sunday, Akinci called on Anastasiades to “follow a more realistic and constructive policy” with regards to the Cyprus issue as he congratulated the president on his re-election on Monday. Akinci has also confirmed, following Ozdil Nami’s resignation, that he will not appoint a new negotiator, spelling difficulty in restarting talks.In spite of these developments, the president reiterated his commitment to dialogue, though he stressed that he will remain firm on his position on guarantees, rejecting any scenario that would compromise Cyprus’ “independence”. “The current, unacceptable situation is due to the presence of the Turkish army [on the island],” he said.Anastasiades also stressed the benefits that a solution to the Cyprus problem would spell for Turkey, which would gain a close partner in the EU.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

raising questions over calls for the explorer to subsidise retailers amid soaring petrol and diesel rates IOC which has for decades been India’s biggest company by turnover last week posted a record net profit of Rs 21346 crore in the fiscal year ended 31 March 2018 (FY 2017-18) up 12 percent from Rs 19106 crore in the last fiscal Indian Oil Corp Courtesy IOC-Twitter ONGC on Wednesday reported

a row posting highest ever net profit of Rs 36075 crore Tata Consultancy Services India’s largest software services exporter with a net profit of Rs 25880 crore was the second most profitable company in the country ONGC was for long India’s most profitable company but lost the crown to private sector Reliance and TCS three years back In fact its profit was higher than the combined net profit of the three state-owned fuel retailers – IOC Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL) but now it is behind IOC For 2017-18 HPCL last week reported its highest-ever net profit of Rs 6357 crore on a turnover of Rs 243 lakh crore BPCL earlier this week reported a net profit of Rs 7919 crore for the fiscal The sustained profitability of the refining and marketing companies has led to some questioning the rationale of asking ONGC to subsidise fuel that IOC BPCL and HPCL sell "Look at their profits They don’t need any subsidy support" said a senior ONGC official "We are in the capital-intensive business of oil and gas exploration and production which has to be necessarily funded through internal accruals Unlike refiners we cannot get loans for risk E&P business" he said ONGC is investing Rs 30000 crore to Rs 35000 crore annually which cannot be sustained if it is again asked to subsidise fuel he insisted Upstream oil producers ONGC and Oil India Ltd had until June 2015 provided for up to 40 percent of the annual fuel subsidy bill This they did this by way of providing discounts on crude sold to downstream refining and marketing companies IOC BPCL and HPCL This discount helped the retailers make good a part of the losses they incurred on selling petrol and diesel below cost The idea of upstream producers again subsidising

"normal" then a far cry from what she appears to be now"The Brooke I’ve been listening to or things that I’m hearing about her just don’t seem like the Brooke that I knew then" Dyer saidThe change

said MORE ON THIS STORY:Former presidential aide Reno Omokri says Minister of Power Works and Housing Babatunde Fahola on Thursday “exposed” President Buhari and Minister of Information Lai Mohammed as liars He said Fashola while trying to defend himself from allegations of ineptitude as regards the epileptic power supply in the country ended up vindicating both Dr Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP albeit unintentionally Reno noted that at various occasions since coming to power on May 29 2015 both Buhari “and his lying parrot Lai Mohammed have attempted to sell the false narrative that the Jonathan administration and the Peoples Democratic Party destroyed Nigeria’s economy and handed over a collapsed polity” He recalled that on the 14th of August 2017 Buhari through his spokesman Garba Shehu said: “With due respects to the former President Dr Goodluck Jonathan these are the facts about the economy you left behind in case you have forgotten I hope this will help to erase the wrong statement credited to you at your party the PDP Convention at the Eagle Square last weekend that you handed to President Buhari a robustly healthy economy” According to Reno Lai on 26th of January 2018 in an interview with the Sun Newspaper said as follows: “I think it will be tragedy for this country for PDP to come back because they have not even apologised to the nation for how they had destroyed our economy destroyed our infrastructure destroyed our quality and so far from their campaign ask them how they will do it better when they get there” Continuing the author pointed out that speaking on February 1 2018 at a civil society engagement workshop on the Power Sector Recovery Programme in Abuja Fashola stated as follows: “We hear all our so-called experts who say (non-availability of) power is why the economy of Nigeria is not growing” “That is not factual and it is not correct At the time when we had less power in 2013 and 2014 the economy of this country was growing at seven per cent per annum We had less power then than we have now but the economy was growing” Reno insisted that the Buhari government cannot suppress “the fact that former President Jonathan developed and grew Nigeria’s economy at an unprecedented and consistent growth rate of over 6% per annum and handed over a thriving economy that was projected by CNNMoney to be the third fastest growing economy in the world when Dr Jonathan handed over power to President Buhari” “Unfortunately due to the ineptitude of the Buhari administration a booming economy became an economy in recession in just one year under the All Progressive Congress “And this is not the only recent example of the vindication of former President Jonathan by the Buhari administration “Only recently lying Lai Mohammed responded to the letter by former President Olusegun Obasanjo by claiming that the Buhari administration had increased the nation’s foreign reserve from the $24 billion it met it to $40 billion “The question for Lai Mohammed is this: From who did Buhari inherit the $24 billion From ghosts From Killer Fulani herdsmen “In light of the vindicating statements by Raji Fashola I hereby call on both President Muhammadu Buhari and lying Lai Mohammed to tender an unreserved apology to former President Jonathan sad the PDP and to henceforth commit to returning Nigeria’s economy at least to the state that they met it when Dr Jonathan handed over power to them on May 28 2015” https://t which surveyed around 1 95 percent of LPA over South Peninsula and 93 percent of LPA over east and
