RSS policies a threat to the countrys secular fabric: Azad

first_imgSrinagar, Jun 5 (PTI) Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Gulam Nabi Azad today termed as a “threat to the secular fabric” of the country the policies of RSS and accused the BJP-led central government of dancing to the right-wing organisations tune.”The policies of the RSS are a threat to the secular fabric of the nation and the principle of unity and diversity, which is the basis of the strength of our pluralistic society. The central government is dancing to the tune of RSS,” Azad said addressing a public meeting at Kupwara in north Kashmir.The Congress leader said his party would defeat the “communal and divisive forces” who were posing a threat to the countrys peace and unity.”It is the commitment of Congress party to strengthen secularism and to defeat the communal and divisive forces in the country who are posing a threat to peace harmony, unity and integrity of the nation,” he said.Azad said deliberate attempts were being made to “instigate” trouble and “vitiate” the atmosphere of religious harmony in the state and in the country.”Incidents at Muzaffarnagar, Udhampurand Dadri were most unfortunate. They were deliberate attempts to instigate trouble and vitiate the atmosphere of religious harmony and brotherhood in the country and the state.”I caution the people of the state against the communal and divisive forces and ask them to defeat such nefarious designs in order to maintain the unity and integrity of the state,” he said and made an appeal to the people to strengthen religious harmony to bring peace for development and overall progress.advertisementThe Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha accused the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for “disrespecting” the peoples mandate.”PDP has been disrespecting the mandate of the people, as it got votes on the promise to checkmate BJP and keep it out of power in order to safeguard the special status of the State.”But the PDP surrendered its political and ideological stand for the sake of power and thus hoodwink the electorate during elections on false promises. There is nothing common between the two coalition partners except that they share power,” he said. PTI SSB SMJ SK SMJlast_img read more

PSG vow to take action as Neymar fails to show up for pre-season

first_imgParis Saint-Germain have vowed to take action after Neymar failed to report to pre-season training, the club announced on Monday, though the player’s father claims the Parisian side were made aware of the delay a year ago.The Ligue 1 champions said they had previously reached an agreement on where and when Neymar would report to training, and the Brazil star failed to arrive while not receiving authorisation for his absence.As a result the 27-year-old star, who missed the Copa America with Brazil due to injury, faces a rebuke and possible disciplinary action from PSG, who, in a statement, “deplores this situation”. Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare An official note reads: “This Monday, July 8, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior was summoned for the resumption of activities of the professional group of Paris Saint-Germain.”Paris Saint-Germain found that the player Neymar Jr did not show up at the agreed time and place, without having been authorized by the Club in advance.”Paris Saint-Germain deplores this situation and will take the appropriate measures resulting from it.”Hours later, Neymar Sr. spoke to Fox Brazil, stating that the club knew a year ago that he would not return until July 15 due to commitments with his foundation, Instituto Neymar.”The reason [for the delay] is known,” he said. “It was scheduled a year ago, with Instituto Neymar, and we couldn’t change it. He will be there on 15th [of July]. Simple as that, no big deal. PSG is aware and participate in Instituto Neymar activities.”The drama is the latest in a tumultuous summer for the Brazil star as talk of a possible exit from the Ligue 1 champions has grown louder.In June, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi had choice words for Neymar, declaring “nobody forced him to sign” with the club for a world-record €222 million (£200m/$262m) fee in 2017.Al-Khelaifi added that he wanted “players willing to give everything to defend the honour of the jersey and to join the club project”, further fueling talk Neymar could be headed for a summer exit after the PSG president had declared  “nothing and nobody is bigger than the club” in May.Neymar PSGNeymar, who remains signed through to 2022, has been heavily linked with a La Liga return, either with Real Madrid or a reunion with Barcelona, with Goal previously reporting he remains a top target for the Catalan club.However, when asked about the Neymar situation last week during the presentation of new signing Frenkie de Jong, Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu appeared to admit defeat in the club’s attempts to re-sign the attacker, citing a PSG’s reluctance to sell despite the player’s desire to leave.”We know that [Neymar] wants to leave PSG, we know that, but we also know PSG do not want him to go. There is no way,” Bartomeu said at a press conference July 5.When healthy, Neymar’s two seasons have been productive as he has scored 34 goals and added 20 assists in 37 Ligue 1 games for the club.But injuries have been an issue, with a broken foot in both seasons causing him to miss extended time, including the second leg of the Champions League last-16 against Real Madrid in 2018 and the entire tie in the same round against Manchester United in 2019.PSG went on to lose both ties, continuing European struggles that have dampened domestic dominance that has seen the club capture six of the past seven Ligue 1 titles.Neymar recovered from injury in time for the Copa America, but a subsequent ankle injury sidelined him for the tournament, as Brazil went on to break a 12-year drought in competition, defeating Peru on Sunday to claim the title in his absence.last_img read more

The Discommon Thermoformed Wallet 2 Makes Cardholders Cool Again

first_imgIn 2016, the men’s creative accessory hub Discommon teamed up with a design team from Hong Kong to create a stunning and sleek thermoformed card wallet that was both functional and truly eye-catching. Because that first creation was such a success, the pair is back to business with the release of the Discommon Thermoformed Wallet 2.The process of thermoforming has been put into practice by manufacturers for quite some time now because the process makes durable, single-use plastic go a long way and allows for simple designs to shine. Discommon and friends have used this technique to their strengths, creating a timeless cardholder that is thoughtful, exquisite, and offers more than your everyday wallet.For the minimalist who appreciates simple yet serviceable aesthetics, the Discommon Thermoformed Wallet 2 offers the same straightforward structure as its predecessor — devoid of all untrustworthy stitching and seams — but it comes bundled with a unique boldness and modern technological perks. Previous The Mission Workshop Khyte Sets a New Standard for Messenger Bags Editors’ Recommendations See ItFor starters, Discommon has integrated an RFID (radio-frequency identification) blocking layer into the non-perforated side of the wallet, which aids in fighting back against card data theft, as well as an increased level of industrial testing to improve adhesive functions and the overall longevity of the cardholder. The perforated edge still lets you carry your travel or access cards that require RFID transparency, however, so you’ll need to be attuned to how the wallet is sitting in your pocket.With an exterior crafted out of Italian calf hide and an interior formed and laminated to a Japanese micro-suede, the Discommon Thermoformed Wallet 2 is a lightweight and ultra-thin cardholder that looks even better looking than the first creation. The wallet is designed to lighten your load, but it can still handle up to eight cards and an assortment of folded bills at your convenience. Even then, you’ll never feel like you have a brick in your pocket, which is a total drawback for many of the larger wallets on the market today. So, take a load off your pants and any theft anxiety with Discommon’s reworked cardholder.See ItAnd if you like this Discommon creation, take a peek at their stunning supercar coffee tables.

Hurtigruten Chooses Names for New Expedition Ships

first_imgzoom Norwegian cruise line Hurtigruten has unveiled the names of its new hybrid-powered expedition ships, Roald Amundsen and Fridtjof Nansen.The expedition ships will be named after the two Norwegian polar pioneers from the period when the company started offering adventure travels.Being built by Hurtigruten’s compatriot shipbuilder Kleven Maritime, the vessels are scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2018.The two ships were ordered in April this year, with an option for two additional expedition vessels.The vessels are designed by Rolls-Royce, in collaboration with the Norwegian yacht designer Espen Øino.“New hybrid technology will make sailing with electric propulsion for 15-30 minutes a reality and substantially longer for ships to come,” Hurtigruten said, adding that the technology, in combination with the construction of the hull and effective use of electricity on board, will reduce emissions from the ships by 20 percent.Intended for voyages in polar waters, the ships will have strengthened hulls for traversing ice.Each of the two vessels will feature a length of 140 meters and a width of 23.6 meters and will be able to accommodate 530 passengers.last_img read more

Spanish Govt Agrees to Negotiate Reform with Dockworkers

first_imgzoom Spanish government has succumbed to the pressure of unions and decided to join the negotiating table with dockworkers on the announced port reform plan, the International Dockworkers’ Council (IDC) said.Namely, as a consequence of the recently announced plan by Inigo de la Serna, the Spanish Minister of Public Works, at least 6,500 dockworkers could be laid off in the future.The plan is in line with a decree issued by the Court of Justice of the Union European Union and it inititally did not include feedback from trade unions on a potential solution that would best implement the mandatory reform of the port system in Spain.In recent days, representatives of tens of thousands of dockworkers from the five continents have sent letters to the Spanish union Coordinadora, the country’s Minister of Public Works Inigo de la Serna, as well as to several Spanish embassies and consulates, urging them to find a solution to end the conflict started ten days ago.Following the unions’ calls the Spanish Ministry of Public Works has decided to pursue negotiation with workers and review proposals from both parties, given that at last Friday’s meeting no proposal was presented, IDC informed.For now, the workers await next Tuesday’s ruling by the Ministry. In case workers’ demands are not met, Spanish trade unions will go on strike on February 20, 22 and 24, 2017.In the words of Jordi Aragunde, the IDC’s General Coordinator, “the Spanish Government must overturn an agreement which 90% of the companies have already signed with the workers, and then proceed to make their own agreement which complies with the European Commission´s judgement in the Court of Luxembourg – which has required the Kingdom of Spain modify the existing stowage model.”“The European Commission neither drafts the jurisprudence of each Member State nor legislates. This is done by each country in a particular way; Spain, in this case,” Aragunde explained.Aragunde further said that it is important for the dockers that the agreement with the government complies with Convention 137 of the International Labor Organization (ILO) which ensures the permanent and regular employment of dockworkers, maintains registers for all categories of dockworkers, and states that registered dockworkers should have priority for dock work. The convention is respected in most countries with maritime traffic, especially when it is ratified by a member state, according to Aragunde.In addition, IDC plans to organize an emergency meeting of its zone coordinators (Europe, Africa, West Coast of North America and Pacific, East Coast of North America, Oceania, and Latin America) in Algeciras, Spain, on February 21 to analyze the situation and give a joint and forceful response to the demands made from Spain.“The conflict should be met with the opportunity of establishing channels of dialogue in good faith and, if necessary, with the presence of European Commission officials. In this way, we can prevent the Spanish economy from suffering consequences. In this sense, the current unilateral decision on the table risks the security of the entire port sector and endangers import and export of Spanish goods in ports,” the general coordinator pointed out.“We have not ruled out proposing actions to influence the movement of Spanish commodities, in case no agreement is reached,” Aragunde added.This would not be the first time that the international workers’ union has taken measures to paralyze or delay the unloading of consumer goods from other countries where the improvement of working conditions is being negotiated, in an effort that governments agree to negotiate with the trade union.last_img read more

Bail hearing for Huawei CFO continues for third day in Vancouver court

first_imgVANCOUVER — The bail hearing for Huawei’s chief financial officer continues for a third day today in a Vancouver court, as lawyers argue about her bail and whether she poses a flight risk.Meng Wanzhou’s lawyer argued Monday that the United States has a political and legal posture against China and Huawei.David Martin told the court that Meng’s husband would pledge a total of $15 million, including the value of two Vancouver homes and $1 million in cash, and would live with her to ensure she complies with the court’s conditions.However, Justice William Ehrcke questioned whether Xiaozong Liu could provide a surety because he is on a six-month visitor’s visa to Canada, and the form to provide the financial guarantee says it must be provided by a resident of B.C.The U.S. wants Meng to face allegations of fraud related to the use of Huawei’s subsidiary Skycom to do business with Iranian telecommunications companies between 2009 and 2014.John Gibb-Carley, a federal prosecutor representing the Attorney General of Canada, asked the judge to deny Meng’s request for bail, saying she has the financial means to flee and has no connection to Vancouver.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Hubble a soufflé ses 20 bougies samedi dernier découvrez ses plus belles

first_imgHubble a soufflé ses 20 bougies samedi dernier, découvrez ses plus belles imagesSamedi dernier, le Doodle (logo de Google) représentait le télescope Hubble. Il faut dire que le télescope spatial fêtait alors le vingtième anniversaire de son lancement. Hubble a révolutionné l’astronomie grâce aux images de galaxies très lointaines qu’il a fait parvenir à la communauté scientifique.Hubble a été lancé le 24 avril 1990, à bord de la navette Discovery. En orbite à 600 kilomètres, il effectue un tour de la Terre toutes les 100 minutes. Il est issu d’une collaboration entre la Nasa et L’Esa (Agence spatiale européenne). Ce télescope pèse environ 11 tonnes et mesure 13,2 mètres de long pour un diamètre maximum de 2,4 mètres. Son coût s’élève à 1 milliard de dollars. Aujourd’hui, il a fourni environ un demi-million de photos de plus de 30.000 objets célestes.Hubble est équipé de deux panneaux solaires, afin de produire de l’électricité ainsi que de deux miroirs. Il faut noter que le miroir principal a causé bien des problèmes : il n’a été fonctionnel que trois ans après la mise en orbite du télescope spatial, à cause d’un défaut de concavité. Des verres correcteurs avaient alors dû être installés. De plus, le lancement de Hubble avait déjà été retardé de quatre ans après l’accident de la navette spatiale Challenger, qui avait provoqué la mort des sept membres de son équipage.Baptisé en hommage à l’astronome Edwin Hubble, le télescope a fourni à la communauté scientifique, mais également au grand public, des images saisissantes de galaxies lointaines, de supernovas, de comètes… Un an après sa mise en fonction, il fournissait ainsi des clichés de la collision de la comète Shoemaker-Levy 9 avec la planète Jupiter. On doit également à Hubble plusieurs découvertes essentielles. Entre autres, la preuve que les trous noirs ne sont pas une simple hypothèse mais existent vraiment. Certaines images ont permis aux scientifiques de déterminer l’âge de l’univers, évalué à 13,7 milliards d’années, et également d’affirmer que celui-ci est en perpétuelle expansion. On sait aussi maintenant que la planète Neptune a des saisons.À lire aussiIls ont vécu la mission Apollo 11, ils nous racontentDeux nouveaux instruments ont été ajoutés à Hubble en mai 2009, durant une mission d’entretien assurée par la navette Atlantis : ils permettent de remonter de 500 à 600 millions d’années après le Big Bang. En 2013, le James Webb Space Télescope (JWST) sera lancé et prendra la relève. Il sera encore plus puissant, et devrait nous faire part du moment même de la création de l’univers.Fêtez l’anniversaire de Hubble en images : https://www.maxisciences.com/hubble/quelques-cliches-pour-retracer-l-039-histoire-du-telescope-hubble_art7067.htmlLe 27 avril 2010 à 13:21 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Latest MiddleEarth Shadow of War Trailer Spotlights Beautiful Locations

first_img Hands-On: ‘Stranded Sails’ Is a Relaxing Farm Sim AdventureHere’s an Hour of Incomprehensible ‘Death Stranding’ Gameplay Stay on target The summer months are usually dry when it comes to major game releases. Thankfully, we’ll be spared the annual drought this year thanks to Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. Warner Bros. has released some impressive looking trailers in the last few weeks that highlight certain aspects of the upcoming title. They’re keeping that party going today with a new video that focuses on the various locations players will visit.Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor took place exclusively within the lands of Mordor. Shadow of War goes beyond the dark lands to include places like the Island of Nurn, Cirith Ungol, Gorgoroth and more. The original game featured a massive open world, but this one promises to be even larger thanks to the additional environments. As you can see from the trailer below, Shadow of War‘s new environments are exceptionally realized. Who could’ve thought such nightmarish locations could look so beautiful?The franchise’s innovative Nemesis system is back with some improvements. Instead of only being able to control a handful of orcs at a time, you’ll now be able to subjugate an entire army of them. This will no doubt be useful when facing off against all of the game’s new enemies. And like Shadow of Mordor, the Nemesis system will ensure that every player has an experience that is unique.Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will be released on Xbox One, Project Scorpio, PC (Windows Store and Steam), PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 4 Pro on August 22, 2017. Preorder here now. The game will be shown at this year’s E3, so expect to get additional details about it at that time.last_img read more

Siren Botnet Finds You Catch More Flies With Porn Than Honey

first_img Pornhub Maybe Wants To Buy TumblrPornhub Credits Government Shutdown For Traffic Increase Want vulgar, young man?Try that pick-up line at the bar, and you’ll end up with a face full of someone’s vodka martini. It seems to do the trick on social media, though.ZeroFOX Threat Research spent five months investigating SIREN, a large-scale spam pornography botnet on Twitter.Named after the mythical Greek creatures that lured sailors to their doom with enchanting songs, the SIREN campaign boasts more than 8.5 million tweets from close to 90,000 accounts.In line with most porn-y spambots, all associated accounts feature a female display name and suggestive photo of a woman; many use profile bios for payload distribution, or target users by quoting their tweets.And if the canned text, often in broken English (“I want to take my #virgin?”), isn’t enough to tip you off, bot tweets adhere to a fairly predictable text pattern: sexually explicit remark followed by phrase enticing user to click shortened goo.gl URL.The redirected website then encourages victims to sign up for a pornography, webcam, or dating site subscription—a scam that tricks customers into handing over personal information that can be shared with other programs, creating a never-ending spam cycle.Details of SIREN were reported to the Twitter and Google security teams, which have removed the offending accounts and links. But not before the digital pimp netted more than 30 million clicks from unsuspecting horndogs.“To our knowledge, the botnet is one of the largest malicious campaigns ever recorded on a social network,” ZeroFOX Research wrote in a blog post. “Previously discovered botnets of this magnitude displayed benign end goals such as generating Star Wars quotes en masse. However, SIREN is in clear violation of Twitter’s Terms of Service.”Security researcher Brian Krebs, meanwhile, recently disclosed a similar email spam botnet driving folks to the same network of pornographic websites.“Both the email botnet discussed by Krebs and [the] Twitter botnet discovered by ZeroFOX have the same end goal and have links to the same network of spam pornography websites,” ZeroFOX said.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Celebrate Voyager Golden Record with Kickstarters Projects of Earth

first_img Forty years ago, images of Olympic sprinters and rush hour traffic, music by Johann Sebastian Bach and Louis Armstrong, and the sounds of birds and Morse code were rocketed into space.The Voyager Golden Record—a 12-inch, gold-plated copper disk—would serve as an introduction to Earth, a way to communicate the story of our world to extraterrestrials.Now, Kickstarter is celebrating NASA’s ambitious 1977 message with one of its own: Projects of Earth.Described as a “parallel ethos,” the new collection explores “our shared and individual experience of life and culture of his pale blue dot,” according to the crowdfunding site, which alludes to the famed photo of the planet, taken in 1990 by the Voyager 1 space probe.“Projects of Earth is a creative initiative inspired by this collective vision of humankind,” a company blog post said.Keep an eye out between Aug. 20 and Sept. 5—the original launch dates of the two Voyager space probes—for new Kickstarter projects that explore life and culture on Earth in 2017.“Together, these projects will create a multifaceted portrait of our world today,” the blog said.To take part in this “showcase of human imagination,” be sure to use the “Projects of Earth” tag in your campaign title or brief; once your project is live, email the URL to earth@kickstarter.com for promotion.“You could make an exploratory photo series, a collection of unique recipes from around the world, a guide to bird songs … Or, you could simply make something inspired by the Voyager Golden Record itself,” the company suggested. “We encourage you to get creative, and take the prompt in whatever direction you like.”Visit the Kickstarter blog and Pinterest page to brainstorm your own ideas. And check out the first set of Projects of Earth ventures, including the already-funded “Ever Decreasing Arctic Circles” photo exhibition and “Voyager 4000” digital paintings series.Other current and upcoming campaigns include Jon Lomberg’s effort to reboot the Voyager Golden Record as a modern collection of content, intended for NASA’s New Horizon spacecraft, the mobile-like Orrery Lamp, and the San Jose Museum of Art’s young refugee mural. This is a  collaboration with Vietnam-based art collective The Propeller Group, Los Angeles street writer El Mac, and children’s author/artist Christopher Meyers.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Neville thinks Emery is using Ozil

first_imgThe Arsenal manager gave the German the captaincy earlier in October and the football legend believes is all to play with the midfielder’s mindFor football legend, Gary Neville Unai Emery is using Mesut Ozil, but only to give Arsenal better results.According to the pundit, Emery gave the German midfielder the captaincy of the Gunners in early October to push him to do better.“Managers are having to make decisions to make people captain to not pacify but force the issue,” he told Sky Sports Monday Night Football as quoted by The Mirror.“Paul Pogba was given the captaincy at the start of the season after a public spat. Same with Ozil at Arsenal. Emery left him out for a couple of games.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“It is almost like they are giving them the captaincy to get more of a performance out of them,” he added.“That would never have happened 20 years ago. You had to earn the captaincy at a football club.”“Managers can sometimes give it to the best player, maybe even to keep a player happy. I look at Van Dijk being captain at Liverpool,” he commented.“I don’t think it as important as it was before as teams change so much now with rotation.”last_img read more

Weight Loss Through Exercise Alone Does Not Protect Knees

This release… read more January 11, 2018 – Obese people who lose a substantial amount of weight can significantly slow down the degeneration of their knee cartilage, but only if they lose weight through diet and exercise or diet alone, according to a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.Obesity is a major risk factor for osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that affects more than a third of adults over the age of 60, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The knee joint is a common site of osteoarthritis, and in many people the condition progresses until total knee replacement becomes necessary.”Once cartilage is lost in osteoarthritis, the disease cannot be reversed,” said the study’s lead author, Alexandra Gersing, M.D., from the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco.Since cartilage loss cannot be reversed, it is important for people at risk of osteoarthritis or with early signs of the disease to slow the degeneration of cartilage. Weight loss has been shown to slow down cartilage degeneration in overweight and obese individuals, but it was unclear if the method used to lose weight made a difference.Gersing and colleagues investigated cartilage degeneration and joint abnormalities over the course of 96 months in overweight and obese individuals who maintained stable weight and who lost weight via differing regimens.The researchers studied 760 men and women with a body mass index of greater than 25 from the Osteoarthritis Initiative, a nationwide research study focused on the prevention and treatment of knee osteoarthritis. The patients either had mild to moderate osteoarthritis or risk factors for the disease. Patients were divided into a group of 380 patients who lost weight, and a control group of 380 patients who lost no weight. The weight-loss group was further segmented by weight loss method: diet and exercise, diet alone and exercise alone. The researchers used MRI to quantify knee osteoarthritis at the beginning of the study, at 48 months and at 96 months.Cartilage degeneration was significantly lower in the weight loss group, compared to the control group over the 96 months. However, this finding was only present among the patients who lost weight through diet and exercise or diet alone. Although patients who only exercised lost as much weight as patients who dieted alone or dieted and exercised, weight loss through exercise alone showed no significant difference in cartilage degeneration, compared to the group who lost no weight.”These results add to the hypothesis that solely exercise as a regimen in order to lose weight in overweight and obese adults may not be as beneficial to the knee joint as weight loss regimens involving diet,” Gersing said.Co-authors on the study are Gabby B.
