Kolkata: Train services were suspended in Barasat-Hasnabad section of the Eastern Railway (ER), Sealdah Division, for more than three hours on Thursday morning after a group of people put up a blockade.The demonstration was held after the death of an under-trial prisoner who was arrested on May 3 when passengers were agitating due to the cancellation of trains owing to cyclone Fani. It is alleged that on May 3, during the agitation, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) and the Government Railway Police (GRP) personnel arrested several persons while clearing the line.

In the meantime, train services were maintained between Barasat and Sondalia on the Up direction and between Hasnabad and Haroa Road station in the Down line. Also, eight local trains including four Up and four Down trains had to be cancelled while eight locals ran late.
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Michigan’s attorney general has deemed unconstitutional a 2018 law that established a panel to oversee construction and operation of an oil pipeline tunnel beneath the channel linking Lakes Huron and Michigan.Democrat Dana Nessel says in an opinion released Thursday the title of the bill approved by lawmakers did not accurately describe its contents as required by the Michigan Constitution.The Republican-controlled Legislature passed the measure during a lame-duck session in December. Then-Gov. Rick Snyder signed it and appointed members of the new Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority, which later approved a deal Snyder’s administration negotiated with Enbridge Inc. to build the tunnel.It would house a more than 4-mile (6.4-kilometre) section of Enbridge’s Line 5, which carries oil and natural gas liquids between Superior, Wisconsin, and Sarnia, Ontario.John Flesher, The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — U.S. wholesale prices edged up a slight 0.1% in August as energy prices took a big plunge, a further sign that inflation is remaining tame.The Labor Department said Wednesday that the gain in its producer price index, which measures inflation pressures before they reach the consumer, followed a modest 0.2% rise in July. Core inflation, which excludes food and energy, rose a stronger 0.3%.After bigger gains in April and May, driven by a surge in energy costs, wholesale inflation has returned in the past four months to the tiny increases seen during much of this record-long economic expansion, now in its 11th year.Given the low inflation, the Federal Reserve is expected to cut its key interest rate for a second time this year at next week’s meeting.Martin Crutsinger And Bani Sapra, The Associated Press
The agency was set to dispatch two aircraft – each filled with 50 metric tonnes of high-energy biscuits – from the UN Humanitarian Response Depot based in Brindisi, Italy, to Peshawar on Pakistan’s northwest frontier. Two more aircraft are expected to depart Brindisi on Friday, delivering an additional 100 tonnes of biscuits to Peshawar. According to WFP, that cargo will be offloaded and transported by truck to Quetta in Baluchistan province, southwest Pakistan. The UN agency is also scheduling two additional flights to deliver 50 tonnes of biscuits to Mashhad, northeast Iran on Saturday and 15 tonnes to Ashgabat in southern Turkmenistan on Sunday. High energy biscuits are critical in the early stages of a humanitarian emergency when people are on the move and cooking facilities are limited; the 265 tonnes WFP is airlifting out of Brindisi will be enough to feed nearly 1 million people for one day. WFP is already providing food aid to some 117,000 Afghan refugees sheltering in Pakistan and a further 35,500 in Iran, all of whom have fled their country’s devastating cycle of drought and war. The UN warned that those figures could rise sharply over the coming weeks as thousands more Afghans, fearing a military strike, flee their homes and head for the borders.
The UN Forum on Forests (UNFF) is holding a four-day meeting starting today that will consider whether strengthening existing environmental and timber treaties and agreements or establishing a new global pact on forests is the smarter option to reducing deforestation and protecting biodiversity. At least 70 specialists are taking part.Forests continue to disappear at an alarmingly swift pace. Brazil estimates that an average of 40 square kilometres of the Amazon rainforest, Earth’s largest, were destroyed each day last year, while the UN has previously calculated that an area larger than Venezuela was lost during the 1990s.In a statement released on the eve of the meeting, the Forum said the protection of forests is important not only for direct environmental reasons, but because forests play a valuable role in reducing poverty and improving food security and access to affordable energy.The Forum was set up in 2000 to promote the management, conservation and sustainable development of the world’s forest, and is a subsidiary of the UN Economic and Social Council. The recommendations made at this week’s meeting will be discussed at a final session in New York next May.
Britain’s Johanna Konta has also spoken about players pulling out of matchesCredit:Roland Harrison/Action Plus via Getty Images Speaking yesterday after his second round win over the German Dustin Brown, Murray said: “I think there is a big difference if you get injured.”If you’re injured going into the match, then I think you need to be pretty certain you’re going to be okay to, you know, play and be able to compete before stepping out there, because, one, you can do more damage to yourself. Two successive matches on Centre Court were cut short when the opponents of Federer and Novak Djokovic withdrew.It led to accusations that some of the players knew they would not be able to complete their games but had started in order to pick up their cheques. Players who pull out before the tournament are not entitled to the prize money.The row then intensified when two of the eight players who withdrew injured from singles matches to re-enter themselves in the doubles tournament. “You’re playing injured and you could potentially make it worse. She added: “You’ve got to keep in mind that the players work very hard to be in the position they are in, but there is also a responsibility to the fans.”Janko Tipsarevic, who lasted 15 minutes on court in the first round before retiring, said: “If a guy is all his life is playing challengers and suddenly has a chance to play Wimbledon main draw, where the first-round loss is £35,000, I don’t think anybody has the right to judge him, to say ‘you didn’t do the right thing, you’re unfair for going there and picking up a cheque’.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Andy Murray has weighed in on the row over players failing to complete their first round games at Wimbledon and still picking up prize money by calling for changes to be made.The Wimbledon champion said he hopes authorities intervene to stop the practise which has split opinion among players and commentators at the championships.The row began on Tuesday after Roger Federer questioned rules which meant that players who started matches but then withdrew were still entitled to collect £35,000. “But also, you know, for the tournament and the fans and the TV and everyone that’s watching, it’s not good to have guys going on the court already injured and knowing maybe they’re not going to be able to complete the match. That’s not ideal.”But I think, you know, there is a way to fix that is by, you know, if you’re indirectly that you get the prize money even if you’re injured and the Lucky Loser comes in and has the opportunity to play for more prize money. “But it’s a bit frustrating, because, you know, for a long time there has been a lot of players asking, you know, wanting more prize money and trying to get more prize money in the early rounds of the slams.”But then you get situations like there has been yesterday, and it’s really not positive for the tour. Well, for tennis. Yeah, hopefully they will make some changes and avoid more situations like that.”British player Johanna Konta had suggested the rules on prize money may have to change as she said players had a responsibility to their fans.Fresh from her win on Centre Court Ms Konta said: “There needs to be a responsibility towards the ticket holders and what they are paying to see. I think it’s something that will be reassessed. Viktor Troicki of Serbia plays a forehand during mens singles second round match against Donald YoungCredit:Julian Finney/Getty Images
The Jihadi Beatles were responsible for the murders of western hostages Known by some fellow fighters as ‘Red Beard’, because of his facial hair, Elbergouzi, became notorious for his brutality and commitment to the cause. The identity of a British Islamic State executioner, known as the ‘fifth Beatle’, may have been identified as a west Londoner called, Hudaifa Elgerbouzi.The Islamist, who was killed last year in Syria, was thought to be a member of the all British terror cell, responsible for a series of horrific murders in caliphate.Along with fellow Londoners, Alexander Kotey, El Shafee Elsheikh, Aine Davis and Mohammed Emwazi, the group carried out some of the most notorious murders under the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).Dubbed The Beatles, because of their British accents, the gang were thought to be responsible for the kidnapping of 27 people and the murders of at least five western hostages.Initially it was thought there were only four members of the gang, but witnesses had mentioned other associates and sources have now suggested Elbergouzi was also an integral part of the terror cell.He is thought to have been the first Briton to travel to Syria and join up with Isil after the caliphate was first declared in 2013. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. But unlike some of his terrorist comrades, he always remained under the radar, reluctant to allow his identity to be shared online or in propaganda videos.One of his close associates told ITV News: “He was a psychopath… trying to fulfil his violent and criminal fantasies with God’s stamp of approval.”Elberghouzi is understood to have gone to school in west London with Kotey, who along with Elsheikh are now being held in Syria awaiting extradition to the United States.The pair face the potential death penalty if convicted of terrorist offences.According to ITV News, Elberghouzi was a passionate Arsenal fan when he was growing up, and enjoyed going to the gym and playing football.But he travelled to the middle east when he was aged 20, on board an aid convoy.He later entered Turkey from Greece, before traveling over the border into Syria, where he joined Isil in its formative days.He allegedly travelled with Tarik Hassane, who later returned and is now serving life in prison for a plotting to kill police officers, soldiers and civilians in London.Hassane, 24, who also grew up near Elbergouzi, was nicknamed the Surgeon because he was studying medicine in Sudan.

THE RETIRING – and now retired – Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has much in common with 13th-century ‘humble hermit’ Celestine V who quit the papacy after only five months, fed up with Vatican machinations.Celestine set a precedent for Benedict as the only other pope to resign of his own free will, as well as one who accepted the job with great reluctance.“I asked myself, where will I find the knowledge, the wisdom and the experience that I lack? Whom can I trust in the Roman Curia?” he asked, according to historian Ignazio Silone.Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, too, gave every impression of the reluctant pontiff. Just two days after his election in 2005 he likened the enormous responsibility before him to capital punishment – to a “guillotine falling”.“The thought of the guillotine came to me, there now it is falling and hits you,” he later told German biographer Peter Seewald.Celestine V, or Pietro del Morrone, had been a Benedictine monk, renowned for renouncing worldly goods for an ascetic life in a mountain cave in the Abruzzo region of central Italy.‘Pick someone,’ he said – so they picked himAfter the death in 1292 of Pope Nicholas IV, the cardinals of the time – just 12 of them – could not reach agreement on a successor. As their dithering went into a second year, Del Morrone beseeched them in a letter to end their bickering for the good of the Church.His reward was to be chosen himself – becoming one of only six non-cardinals to serve as pope in the Church’s 2,000-year history.Benedict, who has always expressed admiration for the ascetic life, twice paid homage to Celestine.After the 2009 earthquake in the Abruzzo capital L’Aquila, Benedict visited the heavily damaged Basilica of Collemaggio, which houses relics of the 13th-century pope.He laid the traditional “pallium” he wore for his enthronement – a band of cloth placed over the shoulders of a new pope – over Celestine’s remains.The following year in nearby Sulmona, Benedict said of Celestine: “More than 800 years have passed since [his] birth, but he lives on in history on account of the well-known events of his pontificate.”Praising Celestine as “a man who sought the answers to the great questions of our existence”, he said his predecessor “went in search of God, and in order to hear God’s voice decided to detach himself from the world and live as a hermit.”In today’s world, Benedict said: “It seems that every space, every moment must be filled with projects, activities and noise; there is often no time even to listen or to converse.”Benedict wanted to retire to writeBenedict’s older brother Georg Ratzinger said Benedict had dreamed of retiring from the Curia to write theological tomes, but was instead elected pope at age 78.Vatican expert John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter noted that Joseph Ratzinger had twice sought permission to quit his post as the head of the Vatican’s doctrinal enforcement department, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which he held for 24 years.“He wanted to head the Vatican library and putter around with books,” Allen told AFP. “The second idea was to go home to Regensburg [the German university town where Ratzinger taught theology]. He was clearly not scheming to take over the papacy.”Celestine, shortly after taking up the chair of St. Peter, issued a decree declaring it possible for a pope to resign, opening up the way for his own departure.He told his cardinals in a consistory – the same platform chosen by Benedict – that he wanted to regain his “lost tranquility”.The move sparked howls of protest and derision, with Italian poet Dante Alighieri famously condemning him in “The Divine Comedy” to spend eternity in hell’s antechamber for his “cowardice” in making “the great refusal.”Unlike Celestine, who was imprisoned by his successor Boniface VIII and died in captivity, Benedict will live out his years in quiet contemplation and prayer in a monastery within the Vatican walls.At least Celestine did not suffer the fate that Dante prescribed for his afterlife. He was made a saint in 1313.- © AFP, 2013Explainers: Do popes resign? and How is a new Pope chosen?Glossary: Some of the terms you’ll hear during the Papal election
TRAFFICKING VICTIMS FORCED to work in cannabis growhouses are sent to prison more often according to Migrant Rights Centre Ireland.The MRCI are making the case on the UN’s anti-trafficking day that 36 people of Asian origin were placed in custody last year alone in connection with cannabis cultivation.In a two-year period alone between 2011 and 2013 they argue that 14 Vietnamese nationals and 11 Chinese nationals were convicted for cannabis cultivation, this is compared to 18 Irish nationals in the same period.There were eight people convicted from elsewhere in the EU meaning that the total number of convictions for cannabis cultivation was 51.“We have shown that people are being trafficked here and forced to work in cannabis growhouses,” argues MRCI’s Gráinne O’Toole. They should be identified and protected; instead, they are being arrested, tried and convicted of drug offenses. Ireland is not just failing to protect trafficking victims; it is actively harming them through incarceration for crimes they were forced to commit.Furthermore, MRCI research of imprisonment statistics suggest that Asian people convicted of cannabis cultivation are more likely to go to jail.The MRCI say that, of the 14 Vietnamese nationals convicted, 13 were incarcerated. All 11 of the Chinese nationals were sent to jail compared to just 5 of the 18 Irish nationals.In 19 of these cases, Chinese and Vietnamese nationals made claims of exploitation or maltreatment including being forced to work for nothing and being unable to leave.“Only last week a potential victim of human trafficking was given a 7-year prison sentence. His case was not even investigated for trafficking, despite clear indicators of deception, coercion and exploitation,” says O’Toole.O’Toole adds that a new law was introduced in 2013 to protect trafficking victims forced to work but this has not been applied yet.Read: Gardaí believe sex traffickers use voodoo rituals on their victims >Read: Education, training and legal help all lacking for trafficking victims – Immigrant Council of Ireland >
GRESHAM, Ore. — Gresham police arrested four young people after the discovery of a dead body outside an elementary school.The department says officers responded to a report of a gunshot late Monday and found the body of a 24-year-old Troutdale man inside a vehicle in the parking lot.Those arrested Tuesday include 21-year-old Andrew McMahon of Gresham, 20-year-old Austin Brown of Portland, a 17-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl. They face charges of murder and robbery.North Gresham Elementary School canceled classes Tuesday because of the investigation.

The content is provided for information purposes only. Most everyone has heard dog-directed speech, which is similar to speech patterns some use when talking to infants—the voice gets higher, the words come out slower and there is a sort of sing-song phrasing. Some of the phrases are familiar as well, such as “Who’s a good boy?” In this new effort, the researchers looked into the use of dog-directed speech seeking to learn if there might be any modulating factors in its use.The experiments consisted of asking 30 female human volunteers to look at pictures of dogs while reading a script consisting of typical dog-directed speech phrases into a microphone to make recordings. The recordings were then played to 10 puppies and 10 adult dogs at an animal shelter as the researchers watched and recorded their reactions.The researchers report that the volunteers tended to raise their voices in ways similar to people speaking to human infants regardless of the age of the dog they were looking at, though it was noted that the voices were raised slightly higher for puppies than for adult dogs. They also report that at the animal shelter, the puppies responded very clearly to the voices coming from the speakers, acting as if they wanted to play. The adult dogs, on the other hand, after a quick investigation, ignored the recordings altogether.The researchers were not able to explain why the humans spoke in dog-directed speech or why the puppies responded to it while the adult dogs did not, but suggest that humans likely respond to puppies in much the same way they respond to babies—and babies have been shown to respond more to baby-directed speech. As for why the older dogs were not interested, it might have been the case that they were simply older and wiser—they could see very clearly there was no human present speaking to them, so they chose to ignore whatever was being said. (Phys.org)—A small team of researchers from the U.S., the U.K. and France has found that puppies are more receptive to dog-directed speech than are adult dogs. In their paper published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the researchers describe experiments they conducted recording human voices and playing them back to dogs, what they found, and what it might mean for human communications.

Dog-directed speech: why do we use it and do dogs pay attention to it?, Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences (2017). DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2016.2429AbstractPet-directed speech is strikingly similar to infant-directed speech, a peculiar speaking pattern with higher pitch and slower tempo known to engage infants’ attention and promote language learning. Here, we report the first investigation of potential factors modulating the use of dog-directed speech, as well as its immediate impact on dogs’ behaviour. We recorded adult participants speaking in front of pictures of puppies, adult and old dogs, and analysed the quality of their speech. We then performed playback experiments to assess dogs’ reaction to dog-directed speech compared with normal speech. We found that human speakers used dog-directed speech with dogs of all ages and that the acoustic structure of dog-directed speech was mostly independent of dog age, except for sound pitch which was relatively higher when communicating with puppies. Playback demonstrated that, in the absence of other non-auditory cues, puppies were highly reactive to dog-directed speech, and that the pitch was a key factor modulating their behaviour, suggesting that this specific speech register has a functional value in young dogs. Conversely, older dogs did not react differentially to dog-directed speech compared with normal speech. The fact that speakers continue to use dog-directed with older dogs therefore suggests that this speech pattern may mainly be a spontaneous attempt to facilitate interactions with non-verbal listeners.

But you shouldn’t have to work up a sweat when it comes to your mobile computing setup. Hardcore mobile entrepreneurs can take advantage of one of the many ultraportable laptop options on the market.The compromises aren’t as major as they used to be. You still pay a premium to slim down to 4 pounds, but you get plenty of power and features. Hewlett-Packard’s Compaq nc4200 Notebook PC shimmies in at 3.9 pounds and features a 40GB hard drive, 512MB RAM, Wi-Fi and a 1.73GHz Pentium M processor, all for $1,599 (all prices street). You’ll want to add a CD burner or DVD drive.Ultraportables do veer away from the overall trend of increasingly large laptop displays. Expect ultraportables to have diagonal measurements between 8.9 inches and 12.1 inches in varying shapes. Dell’s $1,998 Latitude X1 makes the most of 12.1 inches with a WXGA aspect ratio (1,280 x 768) that improves multimedia or DVD viewing.The Fujitsu LifeBook P1510D takes a slightly different approach, befitting its role as a convertible tablet PC. Its 8.9-inch wide-SVGA display (1,024 x 600) is more rectangular than square for spreadsheet viewing, and it folds back to create a writing slate. At 2.2 pounds, it’s a featherweight, but you sacrifice having an internal CD or DVD drive. Compare it with the heftier Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet, which weighs in at 3.5 pounds and comes stocked with a 12.1-inch display and an integrated fingerprint reader for security. The tablet option isn’t for everyone, but users who work in warehouse environments or who really like the ability to use the handwriting technology will want to consider it. Some buyers may want to wait a bit for the new, improved version of the tablet PC OS set to debut with Windows Vista sometime this year.The style-conscious Sony VAIO TX series starts at about $2,300 and offers a special feature for highly mobile entrepreneurs who need to be on the net. Integrated wireless WAN works in conjunction with a subscription from Cingular to keep you connected anywhere within Cingular’s service area. Throw in 1GB of memory, up to 7.5 hours of battery life, a 60GB hard drive and a CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive, and you get a fully stocked machine that lives up to its price tag. Compare that to the similarly outfitted Toshiba Port�g� R200, which comes with Wi-Fi, 512MB RAM and a slightly larger 12.1-inch screen for $1,999.The try-before-you-buy approach can be especially important when you’re dealing with ultraportables. Their compact size may put a squeeze on some users’ fingers, so find one that’s comfortable. When it comes to battery life, you’re apt to get between three and seven hours with a standard battery. Extended batteries or additional batteries are a must for entrepreneurs who expect to be away from power outlets for long stretches. Ultimately, an ultraportable can be a smart compromise between a hefty standard notebook and the limited capabilities of a PDA. $1,499 HARD DRIVE/ MEMORY 3.9 pounds 1.73GHz Pentium M 12.1-inch display, three-year warranty, fingerprint reader This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

Protect PDF Documents with PDF Anti-copy by Martin Brinkmann on May 19, 2017 in Software – 8 commentsPDF Anti-copy is a free program for Microsoft Windows devices that enables you to protect PDF documents from being copied.Most PDF creation programs come with options to disable functionality such as printing or copying, or password protect PDF documents to prevent unauthorized access.PDF cracking tools are available that may disable the protection, and PDF Anti-copy promises that its methods prevent the copying after it has processed the PDF document.PDF Anti-copy is available as a portable program, and version that needs to be installed, for all recent versions of Windows. The archive that you download has a size of about 19 Megabytes, the extracted files a size of about 30 Megabytes on the hard drive.PDF Anti-copyThe interface of the program is simple and straightforward. Use the load icon to load a PDF document. The application lists all pages of the document in its interface, and you get a preview of the selected page right away in the interface.You may apply the copy protection to individual pages of the document, or use the check all button at the top to mark all pages instead and speed up the process.The only other option that you have is to change the output directory for the processed PDF file. A click on start now runs the process. The processing takes a while, eve if you select just a couple of pages and not all pages.If you open the processed PDF file afterwards, you will notice that the pages that text from the selected pages cannot be copied anymore, and that document conversions won’t change that either.You wonder probably what PDF Anti-copy does to the file that prevents the copying of content. The answer is simple: it replaces the page with a vector image. This means that the quality does not deteriorate, and that the page looks exactly like it did before.The processing has downsides to it though. First, that it will blow up the size of the PDF document as text is replaced by images. Second, that some functionality is lost. You cannot copy text anymore obviously, but search won’t find anything either.The copy protection is not perfect though. As long as you can read the text on your screen, you could copy it manually, use OCR software to automate the process and edit the output afterwards, or even print the document.The copy protection that PDF Anti-copy adds to PDF pages or entire documents won’t prevent experienced users from copying the contents, but they could block inexperienced ones from doing the same or making it more difficult for them to come up with a solution.Closing WordsPDF Anti-copy is not perfect, but it may prevent some users from copying parts of a document, or at least make it more difficult for them to do so.Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 5 votes Software Name PDF Anti-copyOperating System WindowsSoftware Category OfficeLanding Page https://pdfanticopy.com/index.html Advertisement
