first_imgThe Congress on Tuesday hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the self-immolation bid by a woman from Hapur who was allegedly turned away by the police in Uttar Pradesh when she reportedly sought to file a complaint about having been gang raped.“The shocking incident being reported today all over India that a woman from Uttar Pradesh set herself ablaze and is in critical condition in AIIMS with 80% burns in order to ensure that her voice reaches the BJP government, specifically Uttar Pradesh government,” Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill said at a press conference.“Will the Prime Minister visit the hospital and reply why her complaint was not registered by the police for the past 7 months? Will he reply to the girl or give answers, why under the BJP government” she was assaulted multiple times, asked Mr. Shergill. A widow is reported to have set herself on fire after she was sold for ₹10,000 and gang-raped but was turned away by the Hapur police.“The Prime Minister and the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister are busy campaigning and not understanding a woman’s pain who became the victim of such a heinous crime,” Mr. Shergill asserted. “The Indian National Congress demands answers and accountability from the Prime Minister and from the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister on account of rising crimes against women,” he said. The Congress spokesperson claimed that crimes against women were increasing in States being ruled by the BJP. He asserted that the latest National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data showed that “after BJP came to power in 2014, crimes against women alone in Uttar Pradesh has increased by 34% and child rape cases have also increased in the country by 83%.”“Under the BJP rule, women have to burn themselves to get justice, Not only in this case but the same happened in Unnao. The victim protested for six long months to get justice. She also threatened the government by saying that she will also burn herself if her plea is not heard,” he alleged.last_img read more

Autocar has reported that Skoda is testing the updated facelift of the car which features both cosmetic and mechanical upgrades.The new Rapid follows the Czech carmaker’s new design philosophy which is heavily evident in other cars like the Octavia. The new Rapid will sport changes to the front fascia of the car with the hood, grille, front bumper, fenders and headlamps getting a revised design.The petrol variant of the car is not set to get mechanical upgrades, but the diesel variant however will be getting a slight bump in power due to heavy localisation and a bigger turbocharger which has also been locally sourced.The Rapid sold in the Indian market is powered by a 1.6-litre TSI petrol motor and a 1.5-litre TDI diesel motor. The updated diesel variant which will be getting a bump in power might be launched at a later date than the new facelift model of the car.last_img read more

first_imgPhoto Attribution: @eknielsenAfter Thursday night’s OSU-Arizona game ,O’Colly sports editor Anthony Slater and I flooded each other’s inboxes with thoughts and ideas for this year’s squad, here’s what we came up with:Anthony Slater: It finally seemed like football was back Thursday night. The opener was a little sluggish, for the team and the town. But it finally felt like the buzz and energy was back in Stillwater, and the team seemed to feed off of it. Defense continues to improve and the offense looks amazing. Thirty-seven points doesn’t seem indicative of the performance we saw Thursday night. That’s 24 points less than the opener, which is puzzling because they were clearly better in game two. I guess stats do lie sometimes. Plenty to talk about. Just wanted to get your initial reaction to the game.Kyle Porter: I thought OSU barely looked like a top 20 team in the opener but turned around and looked like a top 8 team against Arizona.They looked dominant in the way perennially powerful football schools look dominant. Blackmon and Weeden are completely on another level right now and it blows my mind that Weeden doesn’t get the love he deserves from the national media. I saw Heisman ballots being thrown around with the names B.J. Daniels and Tyler Bray on them. Are people for real with this stuff?One thing that stood out to me on Thursday (besides the evolution of Joseph Randle and Blackmon’s video game moves of course) was the student section. Use any descriptive adjective you can find in the thesaurus for “lackluster” and that would be how I would define the crowd against Louisiana, why the shift on Thursday against Arizona?Slater: Huge shift in the energy on Thursday night and I think it was due to a couple of factors. The opener was on a brutally hot day against a terrible team. OSU came out sleepwalking, knowing it could win with about 25% effort. The lack of energy seeped into the crowd. With every TV timeout, the long day of tailgating caught up with the student section more and more.But Thursday, there was different kind of feeling surrounding the game. The Cowboys were still favored, but it was a Pac-12 team coming into Boone Pickens on national TV. Heavy tailgating didn’t begin until later in the day and it showed in the crowd. Plus, OSU came out with incredible energy. The defense was making plays, the offense looked as explosive as I’ve seen, and Blackmon pleaded for noise from the crowd.But back to the game. You mentioned it a little, but I thought Joseph Randle was incredible. Coming into the season, the prevailing thought was split time between him and Smith. But Randle is clearly the No. 1, through no fault of Smith. I feel pretty comfortable saying he is one of the top 5-10 running backs in the nation. What have you thought of his early season performance?Porter: Wow, top 5-10 is strong.I want to see how he holds up being the No. 1 guy throughout a full Big 12 schedule before I go that far. I will say he’s one of the five most versatile backs in the country. His ability to run wheel routes, wait on a screen, or punch it up the middle is everything you want from your feature back. He kind of reminds me of Matt Forte in that way, it’ll serve him well at the next level.I’ve been intrigued in how both have been used this year. I thought their carries would be evenly distributed throughout games but it seems like Gundy is intent on giving Randle the majority of the carries early and letting Smith close. And if there’s somebody that’s going to close harder and with more fervor than Jeremy Smith, then I want to see him.He’s a luxury not many teams in the country have.And speaking of luxuries…Boone was on hand on Thursday (as he always is) and he joined Rece in the booth to talk realignment and Aggies (ours and theirs). Are we cool with him being the unofficial spokesperson for OSU fans at large (not that your answer, or mine, is going to matter one way or the other)?Slater: Yes, top 5-10 does seem like a strong statement, especially for how young he is. But like you said, you can’t get more versatile than Randle. Extremely valuable to the OSU offense because he does everything.As for Boone, it is what it is. Money creates power, and that is what he’s got. Somebody asked me the other day why his opinion on conference realignment mattered. Some people might not like it, but his opinion is extremely important. There is no doubt he is in on the discussions with Holder and whoever else. And he should be. The only reason OSU is in such a good position during this conference realignment is because of the recent success of the athletic department, specifically the football team. Boone’s responsibility for that is well-documented. So what he said matters and if people keep asking for his opinion, then I’m sure he will keep giving it.One thing I want to know from you. As a big OSU fan, two games into this season, are you more optimistic than you were when the season started? Less? About the same?Porter: Great question, I guess that’s why they pay you the big bucks at the O’Colly, right?I am generally a pessimistic fan when it comes to OSU. Not pessimistic, that’s the wrong word, but I try to be realistic about what certain teams can and can’t accomplish. Coming into the season though, I was completely bought in to this team playing in New Orleans in early January.Then, after week 1, I was a little worried and I’ve since written that I probably shouldn’t have been considering the lone detractor from, as you put it, a celebration was one of the three best QBs in the country throwing a few picks. That’s a much smaller issue than say “Louisiana ran all over our defensive front.”After week 2 though? I’m ECSTATIC. In ’09 after that team took care of Georgia there was this aura surrounding Stillwater that we could talk Big 12 and maybe even national titles. People were out of their minds. That all came hurtling back to earth shattering into a billion pieces after Case Keenum and some coordinator named Holgorsen laid it on them at Boone Pickens Stadium the following weekend. All that to say, that scenario would never happen with this year’s team.This year’s team is deep and nasty and they can score whenever they want in any way they want. You’re right that the 37 points against the Wildcats didn’t tell the story. There wasn’t a second of that game that I thought OSU wasn’t going to win by at least three touchdowns.So I’m back where I was going into the season as far as expectations go. That changes if they go to College Station and get a win though. Then I go into full-blown “my gosh we’re one-third of the way to perfection with only a Texas team who can’t find a QB, a not-as-good-advertised Mizzou team, and OU standing in our way” mode.Speaking of national predictions, why isn’t Weeden getting any Heisman love…You can visit the rest of this exchange (as if it wasn’t long enough already) at here.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

first_imgInternationally renowned Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams is calling on Ottawa to change copyright laws to bring them more in line with provisions in the United States.In particular, Adams told a House of Commons committee today that one section of the Copyright Act needs to be amended to give artists the ability to better control what they create.Adams pointed out to MPs the law prevents artists from recovering ownership of their creations until 25 years after they die.He noted that musicians in the U.S. have the ability to recover copyright control over their works 35 years after signing over the rights to record producers.The musician, known for such hits as “Summer of ’69,” said the change he is proposing likely would not affect how much he earns from his music.But he said younger artists could benefit.“I just think it’s fair” to make the change, Adams said.Bryan Adams joins the MPs to discuss pay for Canadian artists and musicians.

by Wayne Parry, The Associated Press Posted Mar 6, 2015 2:53 pm MDT Casino company appeals ruling favouring Trumps in Atlantic City naming rights lawsuit This Jan. 14, 2015 photo shows the name of the former Trump Plaza casino in Atlantic City, N.J. spelled out in dirt on the facade of the shuttered casino three months after work crews removed the letters from the building. On Friday, March 6, 2015, Trump Entertainment Resorts appealed a bankruptcy court order in favor of Donald and Ivanka Trump allowing them to move forward with their lawsuit in New Jersey state court seeking to force the company to strip the Trump name from the rest of trump Plaza and all of the Trump Taj Mahal. (AP Photo/Wayne Parry) ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Donald Trump won’t rest until his name is off every last vestige of the Atlantic City casino empire he once owned.The owners of the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort on Friday appealed a court order in favour of Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, in a lawsuit seeking to strip their name from the casino.Trump Entertainment Resorts — which the real estate mogul and reality TV star no longer runs — filed the appeal in U.S. District Court in Delaware of a Feb. 20 ruling enabling the Trumps to move forward with their lawsuit in state court.The Trumps say Trump Entertainment allowed its two Atlantic City casinos to fall into disrepair. That, the Trumps say, damages their personal brand.The company has stripped the Trump name from most of Trump Plaza, which closed on Sept. 16, but is fighting to keep using it at the Taj Mahal, its lone remaining casino.In filing their lawsuit last August, the Trumps wrote, “The Trump name … has become synonymous with the highest levels of quality, luxury, prestige and success.”Donald Trump does not run or control Trump Entertainment Resorts, which was formed after the Trump casino empire emerged from the second of its three bankruptcies. But he retains a 10 per cent stake in it.He is particularly sensitive to any negative associations of his name with Atlantic City. He has repeatedly said he has had no involvement for at least six years with the casinos that bear his name.In response to the lawsuit, Trump Entertainment began stripping large neon letters spelling out “Trump” on the exterior of Trump Plaza in October. But the result might not be what Donald Trump had in mind: the word is still outlined in dirt or rust in many spots on the former casino facade.Billionaire investor Carl Icahn is acquiring Trump Entertainment by swapping its debt that he owns in return for ownership of the company. Icahn joined Trump Entertainment Resorts in the appeal on Friday.___Wayne Parry can be reached at AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Then-senior wide receiver Devin Smith (9) catches a touchdown during a game against Illinois on Nov. 1 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won 55-14. Credit: Lantern file photoFormer Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith has been selected by the New York Jets with the 37th pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft. This marks the fourth consecutive year a former Buckeye has been taken in the second round.Smith ended his OSU career with 2,503 receiving yards and 30 touchdown receptions. During his senior season in 2014, he had a team-leading 931 receiving yards and 12 touchdown catches. He led the nation among qualified receivers with an average of 28.2 yards per reception and was an All-Big Ten honorable mention in both 2013 and 2014.In 2011 as a true freshman, Smith saw considerable playing time, catching 14 passes for 294 yards. He also caught four touchdowns — including a 40-yard heave from then-freshman quarterback Braxton Miller as time winded down to pull off the upset of Wisconsin.As a sophomore, Smith started 10 games. He more than doubled his receiving yards from the previous season, racking up 618 yards on 30 catches and a team-leading 6 touchdown receptions. Much like as a freshman, one of his touchdowns came in highlight reel fashion. This time, it was a spectacular one-handed grab as he tumbled to the turf against Miami (Ohio).The following season, he continued on his upward trajectory. As a junior, he tallied then-career highs in receptions (44), receiving yards (660), and touchdowns (eight).He established himself as a legitimate NFL prospect during OSU’s three-game national title run, specifically against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game and Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Against the Badgers, Smith caught four passes for 137 yards and three scores. Then versus the Crimson Tide, he tallied 87 yards on two receptions, with a touchdown.The Jets were lead in receiving by Eric Decker during the 2014-15 season with 962 yards. They traded for receiver Brandon Marshall during the offseason.New York is scheduled to open the 2015-16 season Sept. 13 against the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m. read more

first_imgAsked if Ms Bailey’s whereabouts were mentioned at any stage, he replied: “No, nothing.”I assumed she was home as both her cars were there.”Earlier that same day, a nurse he had seen, Lynn Hull, said Stewart appeared “distant” and “spaced out” during an appointment, jurors heard.He had delayed his appointment from the morning until the afternoon, citing car trouble, jurors were told.Stewart was said to have had to frequently visit the doctor to have his dressing changed following surgery on his intestines, which had made him “lethargic and tired”, according to his son.It was the following day that Jamie noticed Ms Bailey was not at home.He said: “Normally when you walk through the front door Boris the dog comes bounding up to meet you – I remember that not happening, which was a bit unusual.”Stewart told his son that Ms Bailey had left a note saying she had gone to her home in Broadstairs, Kent, and wanted to be left alone.He told the court he never saw the note and was informed by his father that it had been “thrown out with the rubbish”.”Throughout that week, he began to get visibly more stressed out. He was spending a lot more time with myself and my brother and wanting to be around us.”Several days later he told Jamie he had reported Ms Bailey missing.”I hadn’t been aware that there Helen hadn’t been in contact with anyone,” he told jurors.He added: “Throughout the week he became more and more stressed and over the weekend he was quite frantic and wanted to help the police find her.”He added that all that appeared to be missing was a raincoat, a pair of Wellington boots and a collar for her dog. The fiance of children’s author Helen Bailey played a game of bowls and had a Chinese takeaway on the day he is accused of drugging and killing the author, a court has heard.Ian Stewart, 56, of Royston, Hertfordshire, repeatedly pushed for a sale of her property to go ahead after he allegedly killed her, a jury at St Albans Crown Court was told.The 51-year-old writer’s body was found dumped alongside her beloved dog Boris in a cesspit deep below her £1.5 million property in Royston in July 2016.Stewart denies charges of murder, fraud, preventing a lawful burial and three counts of perverting the course of justice.

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. It is alleged that the killing had “money as its driving motive”, with Stewart in line to be a “substantial” benefactor of the author’s £4 million fortune in the event of her death.The defendant’s son, Jamie Stewart, told the court that, on the day his father is alleged to have killed Ms Bailey, he had gone to watch him play bowls in Cambridge.He added that, although it was the final of a competition, his father had been unwell so he did not know if he would turn up.He said: “When I went into the bowls club he happened to be just there in front of me – I was a bit surprised to see him there, but I was happy.”After his father lost, the pair had a Chinese takeaway together. The side of a well beneath the garage at the home of Helen Bailey in Royston, Hertfordshire The court previously heard that in 2015 Stewart was given power of attorney alongside Ms Bailey’s brother John, allowing him to control her affairs should she become unfit to administer them.Mr Penn said of one later meeting: “I do remember on this occasion that he was very anxious and he was not at all pleased to hear the news that we were not able to proceed with the transaction; it didn’t go down well.”He was shrugging his shoulders, he was looking anxious, he was not pleased to hear that information, put it that way.”I explained to him obviously, with the question mark over where Helen was, there was a question mark over the power of attorney.”Stewart allegedly told the solicitor he was looking into getting his powers of attorney properly registered.The court heard that this was required for his powers over Ms Bailey’s affairs to become active – and only stood if she was alive.

He talked about a power of attorney and I said in these circumstances we would want to hear from Helen.”last_img read more

first_imgWEEK SIX IS when we assess our progress.  Take a moment to think back to your first session and do an honest assessment of how far you’ve come.Are you progressing as planned? Or have you missed a few days from the plan through illness or injury?You need to be healthy first and fit second and that means not sacrificing health for fitness.Don’t run when injured and don’t run when you’re not feeling well.  If you are starting to feel any niggling pains or discomfort in your legs it might be worth investing in a sports massage as most running related injuries are easily cured.Don’t be tempted to run through the pain as this can make the problem worse.  Don’t test your breaking point and sometimes stopping in time can make all the difference, forget about no pain no gain and instead adopt the train don’t strain mentality.Simple things become complicated when you expect too much and your goals need to be realistic and reflect your current state of fitness and overall condition.  Don’t try to make up for what you may have missed by adding in extra sessions or rejoining the plan where you should be.  When making a return or starting again it’s best to take two steps back before trying to go forward again as this will prevent you from doing too much too soon.Week SixMonday: Five-minute brisk walk.

It gets even trickier when you have certain teams who need access to specific apps with specialized accessibility, and other teams who use different tools entirely. Jamf Now makes it possible to create and change the settings for devices quickly and easily over the air. You can also centrally deploy apps and re-assign licenses for software as your workforce changes and grows.And because it’s essential to ensure that your company data stays safe, Jamf Now helps you establish and maintain security best practices, including making passcodes mandatory and helping you check device usage.

first_imgDomenic “Nicky” Palermo, 34, is in a pretty successful band, but that doesn’t mean he’s had a glamorous life. The frontman of the Philadelphia-based quartetNothing, founded in 2010, plays more than 100 shows per year for up to 1,000 people per show, but he grew up poor in a single-parent family. He’s even done time in jail.And he could never afford health care.“I’ve been a person who hasn’t had health insurance for pretty much my whole life since I was a kid,” Palermo said in a telephone interview with The Washington Post. “I’ve had broken bones. I’ve had to Super Glue my forehead shut when I hit myself with a guitar. I owe money to hospitals for things.”So Palermo was horrified this week to learn that Collect Records, with which Nothing had signed to release two albums, was bankrolled in part by Martin Shkreli. The Turing Pharmaceuticals chief executive was shredded this week by Hillary Clinton, among many, many others, for raising the price of a drug used to treat HIV/AIDS from $18 to $750, or more than 4,000 percent.“Price gouging like this in the specialty drug market is outrageous,” Clinton wrote on Twitter. Price gouging like this in the specialty drug market is outrageous. Tomorrow I’ll lay out a plan to take it on. -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 21, 2015 For Palermo, the problem was political. But it was also personal.“I just can’t spend that five years and then attach myself to someone who is doing what Martin is doing,” Palermo said of his time in Nothing.After facing global outrage and criticism of price-gouging customers for Daraprim, an important treatment for a parasitic infection that can be fatal to those with compromised immune systems, Shkreli retreated Tuesday.“We’ve agreed to lower the price on Daraprim to a point that is more affordable and is able to allow the company to make a profit, but a very small profit,” he told ABC News. “We think these changes will be welcomed.”Shkreli’s compromise may alleviate the concerns of humanitarians – but punk rock has a longer memory. Collect was founded by Geoff Rickly of the iconic band Thursday, who is known for his leftist politics – and now, his regret for Shkreli’s involvement with his label.“My head is still spinning, and though I want to believe that there is some reason that he would do this that is some remotely positive way, the only thing I can see is that it is totally and completely heartbreaking,” Rickly told Noisey about the CEO.Rickly said that he met Shkreli when the CEO – a Thursday fan – contacted him on Twitter to buy his guitar. “As a musician, steady income is hard to come by, so sometimes you do things to make ends meet,” Rickly said of the sale.But the transaction was the beginning of conversations that resulted in Shkreli becoming a “silent partner” in Collect. Rickly said the CEO’s involvement was limited – that he “never asked to see the bottom line” and had no “check and balance.” Morever, Shkreli supported Rickly when he tried to give more control to artists on the label – a punk-rock must.“There were no red flags at that time,” Rickly told Noisey. “I genuinely enjoyed his company, and I was just excited for the opportunity to work with him and to have someone who believed in my vision for the future.”Now, that bright future has turned to ashes.“I can’t see my future at all in the label,” he told Noisey.He pointed a finger at the system.“Artists get blamed for everything and capitalism is never held accountable,” he told Noisey. “I really think that if Collect is going to be scrutinized as being capitalism, but that is how music survives. I’m not making excuses for what has happened, but there is no corner of the music industry that doesn’t live and breathe from subsidies from business. It’s reductive and hypocritical to hold us and only us accountable though, we are all at fault in some greater way.”Some bands on the Collect roster, meanwhile, stood by Rickly – while stridently distancing themselves from Shkreli, saying they had never met him.“I personally 100% am NOT F-KING OK with this guy and his business tactics,” Hether Fortune of Wax Dolls, a Collect band, wrote on the band’s Facebook page. “If any of you have learned anything about me through being a fan of the band, I hope that you would know by now that this kind of advantageous rich guy greed goes against everything that I stand for.”She added: “Shkreli essentially donates money to the label. … Therefore by supporting Wax Idols and buying our record, you are NOT contributing to this a-hole’s bank account.”“We would like to make one thing clear – we would never knowingly work with Martin Shkreli, or anybody willing to walk across the backs of the sick and dying with a smile on their face for the sake of making a profit,” Creepoid, another Collect band, wrote on Facebook. “As long as Shkreli is involved with Collect Records, directly or indirectly, we cannot be.”Palermo of Nothing, meanwhile, said he has a new record – “Tired of Tomorrow” – that belongs to Collect, and isn’t sure how, when or if he can get his music away from the label and the stigma Shkreli has brought it. The CEO’s name isn’t on the contracts Palermo signed, he said, and the band is looking at its legal options.But what will Shkreli do if Nothing jumps ship?“We would probably need to speak to another label,” Palermo said. “We really don’t know what’s going on. That’s the f–ked part. Who knows how this guy could react?”Palermo added: “It’s kind of a bum out.”© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Commentscenter_img Related posts:‘Pharma Bro’ Shkreli arrested for securities fraud New bill would protect HIV positive employees from workplace discrimination Costa Rica doctors association alarmed by low vacciation rates of personnel as 17 dead from AH1N1 virus Untimely death of Costa Rica woman in US leaves family with $70,000 in medical billslast_img read more
