‘ILP will be applicable to entire Nagaland, including Dimapur’

first_imgNagaland Governor P.B. Acharya on Thursday said the government has decided to make the Inner Line Permit applicable throughout the State, including the commercial hub of Dimapur.“ILP will be made applicable to the entire State, including Dimapur, and we are committed to streamline the system of issuing ILPs to ensure that no illegal immigrant is able to come to Nagaland,” Mr. Acharya said in his address on the first day of the State Assembly budget session.Under the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation Act of 1853, non-Nagas should have ILP to visit the State, but Dimapur district was not included under the provisions.The Governor said: “While the government will be taking all legal and administrative steps to ensure this, we would also need active support of the civil society, village councils and people in achieving this objective.” He said that while the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was of serious concern to all sections, “we are also aware of the threat that is posed to our society by illegal migrants in the State”. Accordingly, he said, the government had set up a panel to suggest measures to strengthen the existing system of issuing ILPs and recommend modalities to check influx of illegal migrants.last_img read more

A new documentary exposes cricket’s soft underbelly by pointing out how administrators are blithely “killing” what was once the most refined of sports

first_imgIt is always difficult when a filmmaker asks whether you liked his film. In the case of Death of a Gentleman, a new documentary by Englishman Sam Collins and Australian Jarrod Kimber, it’s even harder than usual. Is their film well made? Yes. Does it raise important questions? Definitely. But,It is always difficult when a filmmaker asks whether you liked his film. In the case of Death of a Gentleman, a new documentary by Englishman Sam Collins and Australian Jarrod Kimber, it’s even harder than usual. Is their film well made? Yes. Does it raise important questions? Definitely. But is it fun to watch? Not for any fan of the game. For it points to a harsh reality that makes us both apprehensive and fearful about a sport we love so much. If cricket is indeed at a crossroads, and in urgent need of being saved from the glitz of the Indian Premier League and the hunger of its misguided administrators, Death of a Gentleman offers a harsh reality check that leaves us both scared and anxious.Collins, 32, and Kimber, 34, have exposed the rotten underbelly of our beloved sport and demonstrated how the future of world cricket is anything but healthy in the hands of administrators such as International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman N. Srinivasan and England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Chairman Giles Clarke. At a time when T20 leagues are a success in India and Australia and Sky Sports is planning yet another T20 competition in the UK, concern over cricket’s health could be described as idealistic. And that’s exactly what Clarke tells Collins in the film. In Clarke’s words, Collins and Kimber are coming “straight out of a 1909 Wisden”. However, as we delve deeper, their concerns sound genuine and the filmmakers deserve credit for bringing them to light against all odds.advertisementSo what is at stake here? Why is it that Collins and Kimber, who had started out making a film on Test cricket, ended up making a film with a tagline: “The Biggest Scandal in Sport?” Most importantly, why does it even matter?It matters because cricket is far more than a sport. It is a code and a way of life. “It’s just not cricket” is a statement to highlight any wrongdoing. So when cricket itself is violated, it is indeed a scandal worth talking about. What is alarming is the absolute disdain with which administrators such as Clarke treat Collins and Kimber. Clarke’s comment, “that idiot Sam is waiting outside”, is enough to leave anyone embarrassed. Collins, incidentally, had been waiting outside the ICC office in Dubai to ask Giles and Srinivasan their motive in going ahead with the ICC’s restructuring.When Collins asks Clarke about Allen Stanford, the American billionaire and creator of the Stanford T20 league in 2008-2009 who was later jailed for fraud and whom Clarke had allowed to land at the Lord’s cricket ground in his private aircraft, Clarke replies: “Next Question.” Collins also gets the cold shoulder from Srinivasan who says nothing of consequence in the interview. In fact, to hear Srinivasan say with a smile that there was nothing personal about his differences with former ICC chief Haroon Lorgat is just surreal. For the record, India had cut short their tour to South Africa by close to a month in 2013 because Cricket South Africa, against Srinivasan’s wishes, had appointed him as its CEO.The film ends with an air of despondency. Having watched Srinivasan become the ICC chairman and Clarke the ECB chairman, and having noted that Srinivasan’s deep-rooted conflict of interest-owning Chennai Super Kings and heading the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at the same time-did not provoke a single murmur in the ICC, they say, “It is too late.” But is it, really?As cricket analyst Gideon Haigh says in the film while pointing at an empty field: “That’s where cricket will be 20 years from now because I’ll still be playing it.” Haigh is right. In the ultimate analysis, it is not about the administrators, or the lust and greed for power and money. It is about the fans and their obsessive determination to protect the sport.To leave the final comment to Collins and Kimber: “Death of a Gentleman is not a nostalgic look back at a sport that professionals played against amateurs while stopping for tea. It’s a modern morality tale about a future where sport and money collide, India as a superpower, the curse of the professional administrator and set in a world where fans are better connected to, but more disconnected from, their heroes than ever before.”last_img read more

Share on Messenger Topics Liverpool were close to signing Shaqiri from Bayern in the summer of 2014 and were the player’s preferred option at the time. The winger, however, later claimed Bayern blocked his transfer to Anfield and, with his playing time at the Allianz Arena limited under Pep Guardiola, he joined Internazionale six months later.Klopp has added the Monaco midfielder Fabinho to his squad this summer for £43.7m and wants the highly rated Lyon captain, Nabil Fekir, ideally before the World Cup. Share on Pinterest Reuse this content Share via Email Share on Facebook Transfer window The Switzerland international has a release clause in his contract – understood to be set at about £12m-£13.5m – that can be activated after the club lost their Premier League status. Shaqiri, a £12m arrival from Internazionale in 2015, has made clear he has no interest in playing in the Championship but would “love to stay in England”.Shaqiri’s availability and affordability has alerted a host of clubs in Europe and the Premier League, with Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton – the latter managed by Mark Hughes, who signed the winger for Stoke – among those linked with the 26-year-old. Liverpool also have an interest in the former Bayern Munich player, with Jürgen Klopp looking to strengthen in key areas, although that has not advanced to activating Shaqiri’s release clause.

On Safer Internet Day UN joins global call to boost online safety

On Safer Internet Day UN joins global call to boost online safety

“Child online safety is now much higher on the political agenda of many countries, and has become a top priority for a wide variety of stakeholders, including businesses and financial institutions,” said Houlin Zhao, Secretary-General of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in a message on Safe Internet Day. “I warmly encourage all of you to join us today in promoting the increasingly vital need to keep everyone, and especially our young people, safe online,” Mr. Zhao said.According to ITU, in 2013, 30 per cent of the world’s youth were “digital natives” – defined as 15-24 years old with five or more years of experience online. And by 2018, this is expected to double in the developing world, growing from 22.8 per cent to 53 per cent of young Internet users. “Creating a better Internet together” is this year’s theme,” the ITU Secretary-General said. “The word ‘together’ is the key. It’s a word we hear very often. But in reality, in the online world global collaboration is not so easily implemented.”He went on to say: “Safer Internet Day is a great example of how the international community can start to collaborate in a harmonized way to create a better environment for all.”Meanwhile, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Violence against Children, Marta Santos Pais; the Special Rapporteur on sale and sexual exploitation of children, Maud de Boer-Buquicchio; and the Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression, David Kaye, called on States and the IT industry to tackle head on online child sexual abuse and exploitation, while protecting the right to freedom of expression of both children and adults.In a joint statement, the experts said that “openness and accessibility are fundamental aspects of the Internet – but therein also lie some of the greatest risks.”“New technologies are easing the production and proliferation of child abuse material, with new exploitative activities appearing such as the live streaming of child sexual abuse on demand,” according to their statement. “The quantification and identification of cases are made difficult by the possibility of concealing illegal activities on the Internet. The harm caused to child victims is amplified when images of abuse and exploitation go viral.”The statement went on to note that: considerable progress has been made in recent years in addressing risks and harms while maximizing opportunities offered by new technologies to prevent online abuse and empower children, but “it is high time to scale up these efforts by connecting through a truly global alliance to develop an empowering, safe and inclusive digital agenda for children.”“We need an empowering, inclusive and safe Internet for all children, wherever they are,” it said. “Let us all connect safely to make it happen!”Safer Internet Day is marked on 10 February globally to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and explore the role that all stakeholders can play in helping to create a better internet and safer online community. read more

Urban Meyer praises Larry Johnson hire breaks down keys to Penn State

Urban Meyer praises Larry Johnson hire breaks down keys to Penn State

Four days before the Buckeyes are scheduled to take the field against Penn State, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer took to the Big Ten teleconference to discuss a quality coaching addition, keys to the Penn State matchup and the development of some young Buckeyes.OSU (5-1, 2-0) is set to take on the Nittany Lions (4-2, 1-2) after beating Rutgers, 56-17, last weekend.Meyer said losing Mike Vrabel to the NFL was like losing a key player. “You can’t replace him with a lesser quality coach.” He added that he “pinpointed” Larry Johnson when he first got to OSU, and brought him in after Vrabel left. “He’s done a great job for us.”Meyer said he talked to Johnson about Penn State junior defensive lineman Anthony Zettel. He said Zettel is “a great inside player, pass rusher, spins on contact. He’s an athletic guy playing inside.”He said redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall wasn’t a good practice player last season, and was lazy in the classroom. Meyer said he’s now one of the Buckeyes’ “better practice players” and added that he “does well in school.”More on Marshall: “A gentleman, a guy who represents Ohio State the right way.”Meyer on redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett: “He’s saved our bacon a few times” with his scrambling ability.He said quarterbacks need to have escapability, but don’t need to have world-class speed. “We cannot not have that kind of player again,” he said.Meyer said “everything starts” with the matchup in the trenches. He had specific praise for sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa.He said there are “a bunch” of guys on the defensive line who need to earn more playing time. “It’s time for them to start contributing more,” he said.The Buckeyes are scheduled to face-off with Penn State on Saturday in State College, Pa. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. read more

Settlement Talks Begin With Jerry Sandusky Victims

Settlement Talks Begin With Jerry Sandusky Victims

Jerry Sandusky victims could soon be getting paid for the anguish the convicted child molester inflicted on them. Mediators appointed by Penn State have begun settlement discussions with at least 20 men who accused Sandusky of sexual abuse, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.The accusers involved in the talks include eight who were named in the state prosecutors’ case against Sandusky, four who filed lawsuits or alleged molestation via the media, and at least eight others who have not made their allegations public.“All of these claims will be very different from one another factually and potentially legally,” negotiator Michael K. Rozen told the Inquirer. “We’re having lots of discussions so far about how to go about evaluating them.”Rozen and law partner Kenneth R. Feinberg handled the compensation for the Sept. 11 victims fund and victims of the 2010 BP Gulf oil spill, and Penn State hired them to handle negotiations for settlements with Sandusky’s alleged victims.“Right now, we’re trying to think through how we transparently – both to the claimants and the university – put the claims into some sort of hierarchy,” Rozen said. “Because there’s so much attention being paid to this, we don’t think we can have 20 separate negotiations and 20 separate resolutions.”No one has publicly provided an estimate of how much the university may be willing to pay in settlements to Sandusky’s victims.At 68, the sentence by judge John Cleland means Sandusky will likely die in prison, which is what many of the jurors said he deserved for manipulating youths he preyed on in his charity organization, Second Mile.Legendary coach Joe Paterno was fired in the aftermath of Sandusky’s arrest and later died from complications of cancer.Penn State president Rodney Erickson issued a statement that read, in part: “While today’s sentence cannot erase what has happened, hopefully it can provide comfort to those effected by those horrible events.”Sandusky maintains his innocence and plans to appeal, a process his lawyer, Joe Amedola, has said will probably begin in the coming weeks. read more

2014 Big Ten Media Days Urban Meyer has worries about College Football

2014 Big Ten Media Days Urban Meyer has worries about College Football

If I was on that committee I would have addressed that first.”Meyer went as far to say that be believes the players should be involved.“I think the student-athlete should have a say-so in that,” Meyer said. “It is not just a commissioner’s role. I got a feeling their families will go for free to the national championship game but my starting centers can’t? That’s not right.”Bennett said he thinks the playoff will be fun, but had not yet thought about the cost of travel for families.“That is three big vacation trips in about a month,” Bennett said. “That would be something that families have got to save up for and a lot of families won’t be able to afford.”College Football Playoff Chief Operating Officer Michael Kelly said he was excited about the playoff process, and said that the semi-final and national championship festivities will be similar to those in years past.“We’re going to take the former template of the BCS National Championship game week and transfer that into the College Football Playoff semifinal week,” Kelly said. “And by that they’ll be in town for six nights, but the first half of the event and activities in the community will be front loaded. They’ll have a great time. They’ll enjoy that.”Meyer said he is not so sure.“The kids get to go but the parents have to pay,” Meyer said. “They (parents) drive in the day of the game and they watch the game, and they go home.”Meyer said he believes that a “very small percentage” of his players’ families would be able to afford to travel to the bowl games and “do it the right way.”Bennett said he believes some money could be given to players’ families so that they could attend their sons’ games.“I think that would be nice, and not too much to ask for,” Bennett said of possible funding for the families. “It is not like they need anything extravagant, but to be able to see their children play in big time games instead of having to pick and choose. You don’t want to watch the Big Ten Championship and not have money to watch the national championship.”Meyer said he is not sure if the issue has been addressed yet, but believes it needs to be.“Doesn’t it have to?” Meyer said. “It might have been already discussed. I am hoping it has been. I have not sat in those meetings.”Meyer’s Buckeyes are scheduled to begin the 2014 season at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md., against Navy Aug. 30. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Doctors sent home sepsis sufferer who told them he felt like he

Doctors sent home sepsis sufferer who told them he felt like he

Senior coroner Roger Hatch said doctors should have checked him for sepsis Senior coroner Roger Hatch said doctors should have checked him for sepsisCredit:PA Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust has accepted liability and admitted breaching a duty of care by discharging Mr Mason with such symptoms.Mr Mason died after his organs began to fail and he had a cardiac arrest while in an induced coma.His mother, Fiona Mason, said she hoped these issues would be “acted on with all seriousness” as she remembered her son as a popular man who was looking forward to his career and going travelling.She said: “Our house used to be full of laughter and life. It is now quiet and we are all struggling.”If changes are made that result in lives being saved, that will be of some small comfort.” “This should have occurred when he attended the hospital six hours earlier on March 16 when he first presented.”However, the initial failures to correctly diagnose and treat Mr Mason did not amount to neglect, the coroner said. A student was failed by doctors who didn’t spot he had sepsis, a coroner ruled at his inquest after medics sent him home despite him telling them he “felt like he was dying”.Tim Mason, 21, had flu-like symptoms but was discharged just after 8am on March 16 without further treatment, an inquest in Maidstone, Kent, heard.But hours later the Sussex Downs College student, who was training to be an electrical engineer, was rushed back into Tunbridge Wells Hospital’s accident and emergency department for the second time that day. He was appropriately treated, but died hours later.Senior coroner Roger Hatch, delivering a narrative inquest verdict, said that given the results of his blood test, temperature and heart rate, Mr Mason should have received a sepsis screening and been reviewed by a senior doctor when he was first at hospital.The coroner said: “Had he been correctly diagnosed it is most likely he would have been prescribed intravenous antibiotics and he would not have died.

At least 37 killed as suicide attacker targets Afghan school

At least 37 killed as suicide attacker targets Afghan school

first_imgAfghan volunteers carry an injured youth on a stretcher to a hospital following a suicide attack in Kabul on 15 August 2018. At least 37 people, the majority of them students, were killed when a suicide blast ripped through a school in a Shiite area of Kabul on 15 August, officials said, the latest assault on Afghanistan`s war-weary capital. Photo: AFPAt least 37 people, the majority of them students, were killed when a suicide blast ripped through a school in a Shiite area of Kabul Wednesday, officials said, the latest assault on Afghanistan’s war-weary capital.Around a dozen ambulances rushed to the Mawoud education centre in the western part of the city, where students and relatives described pulling bloodied victims from the rubble of a classroom that had been crowded with teenagers preparing to go to university.”At around 4:00pm this afternoon, a suicide attacker who had strapped explosives to his body detonated himself inside the Mawoud education centre,” police spokesman Hashmat Stanikzai said.”In the explosion 37 people were killed, more than 40 injured,” he said, adding that the “absolute majority” of them had been students.He warned the toll could rise. Other officials have put it at as high as 48 people killed, with scores more injured.It was not clear how many students were at the centre at the time of the attack.One witness, another student named Ali Ahmad, said as many as 100 students may have been inside when the bomber struck, but officials have not yet confirmed the figure.”My brother has been injured, possibly killed, because he wasn’t breathing when I took his bloodied body out of the bloody, burning classroom,” one man, who gave his name as Assadullah, said.He had been nearby when he heard the blast, and ran to the centre, he told AFP.His brother, Nusratullah, was around 17 years old, he said, sobbing over the phone.”He was a smart and energetic boy, top of his class,” Assadullah said. “Now… I am not sure he will survive.”There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which was swiftly condemned by president Ashraf Ghani in a statement.Both the Taliban and the Islamic State group (IS) have carried out devastating, high-profile attacks in Kabul in recent months, but the Taliban quickly denied they were involved.- Grinding conflict -The assault underscores the price that ordinary Afghans have paid in the grinding conflict as the country reels from a recent upsurge in militant violence, including a massive, days-long Taliban onslaught on the eastern city of Ghazni.Afghan forces appeared to have finally pushed Taliban fighters from the strategic provincial capital on Wednesday, as shopkeepers and residents warily returned to the streets after days of intense ground fighting and US airstrikes.Security forces were on patrol and no militants were in sight in the centre of the shattered city, with fighting which began late Thursday seeming to have finally ceased.But analysts said the Taliban had scored a military and psychological victory against Kabul in Ghazni, proving they have the strength to strike a strategically vital city near the capital at will and remain entrenched there for days.The fall of a northern base this week, with at least 17 soldiers killed, was a further blow to Afghan security forces, already demoralised by staggering casualties.”What we’ve seen over the last few days is a microcosm of the war in Afghanistan — overmatched Afghan troops, emboldened Taliban fighters, and American forces that eventually come in to help bail the Afghans out,” analyst Michael Kugelman of the Wilson Center in Washington told AFP.”What’s crystal clear is that nearly four years after the Afghan security forces took over the war efforts, they’re still woefully unprepared for the task — despite very real improvements in capacities in recent years.”That gives the government a strong incentive to build on recent, tentative signs that diplomatic efforts to kick-start peace negotiations are starting to bear fruit, he said.But for the insurgents, Ghazni in particular was being seen as a show of strength. “For the insurgents, the thinking is, ‘why quit when we’re ahead’?” Kugelman said.At least 100 security forces were killed in the fight for Ghazni, officials have said, with unconfirmed fears that at least as many civilians died.The surge in violence comes weeks after Afghans marked an unprecedented country-wide ceasefire between the Taliban and government forces in June, giving some relief to war-weary civilians.It also comes as US and Afghan forces intensify ground and air offensives against the Islamic State (IS), and the Taliban step up their turf war with the group.The Taliban have not claimed a major assault in Kabul for weeks.IS, however, has carried out multiple attacks in the eastern city of Jalalabad and the capital in recent months, and has increasingly targeted the Shiite minority.Earlier this month, IS claimed responsiblity for twin blasts at a mosque in the eastern city of Gardez that killed at least 35 people.last_img
