Major parties swing into poll mode in Chhattisgarh

Major parties swing into poll mode in Chhattisgarh

first_imgThe three major political parties in Chhattisgarh have swung into election mode with Assembly elections just 10 months away. The State is likely to go for polls in October-November this year along with Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. In the 2013 elections, the difference in vote share between the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and opposition Congress was a mere 0.75%. The stakes are higher this year as the State is likely to witness a three-cornered contest with the entry of former Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi’s Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (J). Mr. Jogi has already declared candidates for 20 of the 90 Assembly seats. Yogesh Tiwari, Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (J) leader, said, “We have almost finalised our candidates for 15 more seats. Our leaders have already covered 75 Assembly segments during various yatras in the last few months. We are also appointing a Panna Prabhari [in-charge of voter list] in every Assembly segment.”The Congress recently appointed its election committee and reshuffled its State party committee. A tribal leader and a Dalit leader have been made the executive presidents of the State unit of the Congress and a tribal MLA has been named as the party’s deputy leader in the Assembly.In the 2013 elections, the Dalit-dominated Assembly segments tilted the outcome in BJP’s favour. This time, the Congress is eyeing Dalit votes and is pinning its hopes on its newly appointed AICC State in-charge P.L. Punia, a Dalit leader from Uttar Pradesh.Congress spokesperson Shailesh Trivedi said, “Mr. Punia has covered almost every district in the State. Bupesh Baghel [the State Congress chief] is also carrying out padyatras in the State.”The BJP sounded the poll bugle six months ago, with party national president Amit Shah asking party workers to focus on cornering 65 Assembly seats during his three-day tour of the State in June last year.Chief Minister Raman Singh also travelled to all the district of the State during his Jan Suraj campaign. A BJP leader said, “Our frontal machinery has already started work. Ministers have been asked to organise religious programmess and health care camps and to get in touch with local party workers.”A BJP Minister said, “With the entry of Ajit Jogi, political equations have changed. Mr. Punia has also activated the Congress machinery. We will also be up against 15 years of anti-incumbency. So this time, we have started election preparations early.”last_img read more

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Widespread praise has rained down on the talented 25-year-old, with Gomez of the opinion that his Reds team-mate now boasts the kind of fear factor associated with the very best in the business.The Liverpool defender told the club’s official website of Salah: “Even when the out ball isn’t on, it’s not on because they’re scared of him doing it so then it creates more space into feet.“He has built a reputation that everyone is wary of. They know if they give him a few yards it’s going to give them a problem.“It’s a massive bonus for us – and it has showed with some of the counter-attacks we have scored from this season. It’s another side to the game that can help us be a better team.”It is not just on the field that Salah has been making a positive impression on Merseyside either, with a seamless transition from Roma to Liverpool having helped him to become a talismanic presence.Gomez added: “He has definitely brought his persona into the team.“He’s always in a good mood and he has always got a good energy about him.“He is just a happy person and he’s nice to be around. If someone can be that nice to be around, on and off the pitch, it’s going to make the whole place a better place to be.“He genuinely enjoys football and he can’t stop scoring.”Liverpool will be hoping to see Salah among the goals again on Saturday when they welcome Premier League rivals West Brom to Anfield for an FA Cup fourth round encounter.

Top UN official hails adoption of missing piece in human rights protection

Top UN official hails adoption of missing piece in human rights protection

The Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights will “provide an important platform to expose abuses that are often linked to poverty, discrimination and neglect, and that victims frequently endure in silence and helplessness,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour said. “It will provide a way for individuals, who may otherwise be isolated and powerless, to make the international community aware of their situation,” she added, calling the adoption of the text by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council “a highly significant achievement.” Ms. Arbour noted that the lack of a complaint procedure for economic, social and cultural rights has been “a missing piece in the international human rights protection system,” since the Covenant – which has 158 States parties – opened for signature in 1966. “As we are celebrating the 60-year anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Optional Protocol reaffirms our commitment to a unified and comprehensive vision of human rights, sending a strong, unequivocal message about the equal value and importance of all human rights,” she stated. The Protocol is expected to get the final approval by the General Assembly later this year. It will enter into force once it has been ratified by 10 States. The adoption of the Optional Protocol was among a series of actions taken by the Human Rights Council, which is scheduled to wrap up its eighth regular session today. It also decided to extend the terms of office of eight of its Special Procedures mandate holders – rapporteurs, experts and working groups which the Council can use to explore either specific country situations or thematic issues – and appointed 13 more. 18 June 2008The top United Nations human rights official has hailed the adoption of a new legal instrument which will enable people to submit complaints on violations of their economic, social and cultural rights to an international human rights body. read more

UN plans another gorilla rescue airlift

UN plans another gorilla rescue airlift

“Together, the orphaned gorillas are hoped to form a new ”family” of 10,” the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), which recommended the airlift along with INTERPOL, said in a press release yesterday.The operation, planned for mid July, is the second to be conducted by the UN peacekeeping force in DRC as part of a wider effort to combat the illegal cross-border trade in baby gorillas, which has intensified in recent years with the proliferation of armed groups in the region.The first rescue was conducted by the peacekeeping mission on 27 May, when four eastern lowland baby gorillas, seized from poachers, were flown to safety by UN helicopters to a sanctuary in Kasughu in North Kivu province.The ultimate objective is to rehabilitate the gorillas and to reintroduce them back in their natural environment.According to a report by UNEP entitled “The Last Stand for the Gorilla”, unless urgent action is taken to strengthen the enforcement of environmental law and counter poaching, endangered gorillas may largely disappear from the Greater Congo Basin, in the next 15 years.Previous projections by the agency in 2002 suggested that only 10 per cent of the original ranges would remain by 2030.Those estimates now appear too optimistic, given the intensification of pressures including illegal logging, mining, charcoal production and increased demand for bushmeat, of which an increasing proportion is ape meat.The Greater Congo Basin, including the Virunga mountain range, is considered one of the world’s most resource-rich but troubled regions.In the context of recent wars and continued unrest, the environment remains the silent victim of conflict in the region.Natural resources are systemically exploited or illegally-harvested. Minerals such as diamonds, gold, cassiterite and coltan – used in laptops and mobile phones – as well as timber, end up crossing borders, passing through middle men and companies before being shipped onto countries in Asia, the European Union and the Persian Gulf. 5 June 2010In continuing efforts to preserve gorillas, one of the world’s most endangered species, the United Nations mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), will next month carry out a second airlift of six baby gorillas to a sanctuary where they will be cared for before they released into the wild. read more

Since Katrin Lunde announced pregnancy, Norway stayed without two key players, as Heidi Loke previously said that “she will take a break from the NT”. But, everything changed now, as one of the Gyor’s duo, Heidi, decided to get back to the national team before the tournament in December.– I am very excited. I’ve been wanting to play on the national team all the time, but had to take a break for the sake of my son Alexander. He goes to school in Hungary and can not be taken out of school. Should I be far away, other suit him. It is not so easy. I’ve had a bad conscience, says Løke to TV 2 and added:– It has not been easy to be left for national team either. I have always been motivated to play there. When I saw the girls in the Golden League in Denmark, I noticed that I really wanted to play, admited legendary Loke, who was voted twice for the WORLD BEST PLAYER by Handball-Planet.com (2011 and 2013). ← Previous Story “3 STARS” – Sanja, Marta and Nora!

Scientists use AI to reconstruct brain activity into speech

Scientists use AI to reconstruct brain activity into speech

first_imgAlfred Pasieka/ Science Photo LIB / Getty Images Being able to think into a machine, which could understand you and then speak out loud for you, may become a reality in the near future.Researchers from three teams have obtained brain activity data during brain tumor removal surgeries or through electrodes planted in epilepsy patients’ brains to pinpoint the origin of seizures, and then trained AI to translate the data into speech, Science Magazine reported Tuesday.At this point, the computer models can only be trained one at a time for each individual because the signals that translate speech apparently differ from person to person. More dramatically, the precise nature of the data requires that the skull be opened.The reconstructed speech ranged from a 40 percent to 80 percent rate of accuracy and understandability. However, none of the researchers has yet figured out how to understand imagined speech — that is, the brain signals when people silently speak or hear a voice in their head.One approach scientists may be considering is to meet in the middle, by having the subject listen to the computer-generated speech and adjust their thoughts to get the desired results. Meanwhile the neural network could also be trained to understand how the person thinks.If successful, patients suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) could have a new and easier way of communicating. Physicist Stephen Hawking, who had ALS and passed away last year, had communicated through the use of his cheek muscles.

Cornyn Rolls Out Bill To Tighten Border Security

Cornyn Rolls Out Bill To Tighten Border Security

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:08 Listen X Bob Daemmrich/Texas TribuneA day after President Trump called for restricting legal immigration, the Senate is laying out a strategy to fight illegal immigration. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) sponsored a bill that would authorize an additional $15 billion dollars on border security over the next four years.The bill would turn Trump’s immigration policies into law. It would strengthen physical infrastructure on the southern border, which Cornyn said could include a wall. It would also toughen immigration law enforcement inside the U.S., including a federal crackdown on “sanctuary cities.”“It is the responsibility of every city and every citizen to cooperate with law enforcement, and that’s what we’re demanding,” Cornyn said. “And if they don’t, this has provisions in place that will withhold federal funds, not for law enforcement, but things like CDBG grants and other things that are important to mayors and local communities, which I think will give it some real teeth.”Jon Taylor, who chairs the political science department at the University of Saint Thomas, says, “That would have an impact on Texas cities such as Houston, San Antonio, and such that have been claimed to be sanctuary cities. So combine that with what the Legislature’s talking about in terms of sanctuary city issues, and it could have a significant impact.”The bill would also include a version of “Kate’s Law.” It would toughen penalties for immigrants who reenter the U.S. illegally after being deported for committing a crime.

Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Assistant U.S. Attorney Wynne Kelly argued that Congress has the power to determine the naturalization process for potential citizens, and the lawsuit was trying to sidestep that. Kelly represented the federal government and three U.S. State Department officials as defendants.Eni Faleomavaega, the territory’s non-voting delegate to the U.S. House, filed a brief last year arguing that Congress is the proper venue to decide citizenship, not the courts.Leon said in his Wednesday ruling that he agreed with the government’s argument that previous Supreme Court and federal court rulings as well as historical practice trumped the plaintiffs’ assertions.“Federal courts have held over and over again that unincorporated territories are not included within the citizenship clause, and this court sees no reason to do otherwise,” Leon said.“To date, Congress has not seen fit to bestow birthright citizenship upon American Samoa, and in accordance with the law, this court must and will respect that choice,” he said.American Samoa is the only U.S. territory without the birthright of citizenship. Leon said people in the unincorporated territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands got birthright citizenship through various laws years after being acquired by the U.S. That wouldn’t have been necessary if the Constitution granted citizenship to people in unincorporated territories, he said. 0 Comments   Share   PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (AP) – A federal judge in Washington, D.C., is dismissing a lawsuit filed by five American Samoa residents who say people born in the unincorporated U.S. territory should automatically receive U.S. citizenship.U.S. District Judge Richard Leon ruled this week that the 14th Amendment’s citizenship clause doesn’t apply to people born in American Samoa.Immigration laws classify people born in American Samoa as U.S. nationals, but it’s the only U.S. territory where U.S. citizenship is not a birthright.

Burkina Faso exhumes graves for answers about Sankara death

Burkina Faso exhumes graves for answers about Sankara death

first_imgOUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) — Nearly 30 years after President Thomas Sankara was killed in a coup as he strived to make his West African country an egalitarian one, his purported grave is being dug up to answer lingering questions about his death.Sankara was a Marxist, anti-imperialist revolutionary who in four years in power in Burkina Faso doubled the number of children in schools, reduced infant mortality, redistributed land from feudal landlords to peasants and planted 10 million trees that still help shade Ouagadougou, the capital. His style was different from other African presidents, ordering ministers to trade in Mercedes for more humble Renaults. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Sankara’s death at 37 in October 1987 after a coup staged by his once best friend Blaise Compaore has remained shrouded in secrecy.Sankara and his followers were hurriedly buried, and his family and many others in Burkina Faso have for years wanted to know how he was killed, and if, in fact, his body is really in the Dagnoen Cemetery, on the eastern outskirts of Ouagadougou.“We want the truth,” many people chanted Monday outside the cemetery, urging the gendarmerie to let journalists in.“We are here to see who is in the grave and we won’t leave until we know the truth,” said 20-year-old mechanic Ismael Sawadogo among a crowd of people waiting on dark brown earth outside the cemetery. “I was not born when Sankara died but I heard that he was righteous and loves justice.”Medical experts from Burkina Faso and France are overseeing the exhumation of the site where Sankara and the 12 others killed alongside him are said to be buried. They will conduct DNA tests to identify the bodies.At the time of the 1987 coup, Compaore said troops loyal to him uncovered a plot by Sankara to arrest and then execute Compaore and two other members of the ruling National Revolutionary Council. Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories When troops entered the government compound, Sankara pulled out a light machine gun and a pistol and died in an exchange of fire, Compaore said in reports from that year. Compaore has denied being a part of Sankara’s killing.Workers with pickaxes and shovels were seen starting the exhumation Monday morning under tents.“The exhumations have started,” Benewinde Sankara, the lawyer for Sankara’s family, who is not related to the former president, told The Associated Press by telephone from the cemetery.He said that in principal they might begin exhuming Sankara’s grave on Monday, but “the process is going to take time.” Sankara’s family will not attend, he said.Sankara’s widow, Mariam Sankara, has long been fighting for the right to have DNA tests on Sankara’s body to prove the remains are really his, but until last year she was blocked in the courts. The family long has doubted that the Ouagadougou cemetery holds his remains.The impoverished West African country’s name was changed from Upper Volta to Burkina Faso when Compaore and Sankara staged a coup in 1983 and ousted a moderate military faction to launch a leftist revolution. The country had gained independence from France in 1960 and had been under military rule since 1966. Patients with chronic pain give advicecenter_img Top Stories Compaore then staged his own coup in 1987. The reasons for his split with Sankara were never fully explained.A new constitution that was supposed to restore democracy was adopted in 1991. Compaore ruled from then until he was driven from the country by large-scale violent protests in October amid resentment over his bid to remain in power.Interim President Michel Kafando last year said investigations into Sankara’s death would go forward “in the name of national reconciliation.” The exhumation was authorized by the interim government in March.On Monday, hundreds gathered outside the cemetery as the exhumations began.Serge Bambara, a musician known as “Smokey” who is a leader for an activist group called The Citizen’s Broom, said it was an important day. He said he hopes that this will help prove who killed Sankara, so that they can be brought to justice.“This should have been done years ago,” he said. “We are here because we are concerned about the truth … there is hope.”___Associated Press reporter Carley Petesch in Dakar, Senegal contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.
