It has been the corridor for such illegal trade since a long time to deliver the drugs and other narcotics elements to Bangladesh. Even after trouble cropped up in North East, narcotics racketeers are still using the same area to smuggle in the drugs but changed the corridor to deliver those to Bangladesh using Kolkata and a few other Bangladesh adjacent districts of Bengal.

According to police sources, earlier only rave parties and night clubs were the place where usually drugs and narcotics were used to be sold. After police came to know about such activities, several raids were conducted in late night parties and several persons were apprehended with drugs and narcotics elements. Since then such activities were controlled and supply of drugs and narcotics elements gone down a lot. According to police sources, during the past few months, STF personnel have arrested several narcotics racketeers with huge quantity of such elements and came to know that they are targeting students of educational institutions in the city. During a detailed probe police found that Amphetamines commonly known as ‘Yaba’ in tablet form is the most popular narcotic element among the youths as it is quite cheaper than the other narcotic elements. However, police are trying to create awareness and suggesting authorities of educational institutions across the city to arrange councelling sessions for their students in order to save the students from the clutches of drugs and narcotics elements. “We are concern about the illegal trade. Vigilance has been stepped up to prevent such trade,” said a senior Kolkata Police official.last_img read more

A Canadian Security Intelligence Service assessment highlights a renewed sense of indignation among protesters and clearly indicates the spy service’s ongoing interest in anti-petroleum activism. Civil liberties and environmental activists questioned the rationale for CSIS’s interest, given that opposition to the pipeline project has been peaceful.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. will release its fall 2018 housing market outlook.— Statistics Canada is expected to release its building permits data for September.— Football player Jerome Messam, who is charged with voyeurism, is expected to appear in court.

Transfixing mystery of Malaysia Airlines jet unfolding in region where air travel

HONG KONG – The transfixing mystery of the Malaysia Airlines jet that went missing with 239 people on board has unfolded in a region where air travel is undergoing supercharged growth after decades of being beyond the reach of most people.The still unknown fate of Flight 370, which vanished from civilian radar on a nighttime flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, has riveted the flying public and baffled experts. The backdrop is also compelling even if far removed from the headlines.Air travel in Asia is surging as the middle class gets bigger, discount airlines proliferate and business ties with the rest of the world deepen. Airports are scrambling to expand as they bulge with passengers and an upstart Indonesian carrier has given Boeing and Airbus their biggest jet orders ever.The region’s economic boom, seeded in the early 1990s by China’s embrace of market style reforms, is the underlying reason.“When you’re poor you can’t afford to fly,” said Andrew Herdman, director general of the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines. “The big development of the demographics of Asia in the past 20 years has been the sheer number of people who have been lifted out of poverty into that middle income segment” of $10-$100 of disposable income a day.The International Air Transport Association has forecast airline passengers to grow by 31 per cent worldwide between 2012 and 2017. For Asia, that will mean the number of passengers increases an average of 6.3 per cent each year, nearly three times as fast at the U.S.Routes within or connected to China will be the single largest driver of growth, accounting for nearly a quarter of the additional 300 million passengers during those six years.Whether the Malaysia Airlines jet succumbed to a sudden catastrophe, hijacking or malicious pilot action, it is unlikely to change a two decade trend of ever more travellers, routes and planes.“People become cautious about a particular airline for a while but you don’t see travel patterns change,” said Herdman.Asian demand is a big reason why airlines are on the largest jet-buying spree in aviation history, ordering more than 8,200 new planes from Airbus and Boeing in the past five years. There are now 24 planes rolling off assembly lines each week, up from 11 a decade ago. And that rate is expected to keep climbing.The bulk of the planes are going to new or quickly-growing airlines that serve the expanding middle class in China, India and Southeast Asia.In Asia alone, Airbus has 1,375 unfilled airplane orders or about a quarter of its worldwide order book.The low cost carriers are the hungriest buyers. Malaysia-based AirAsia and its affiliate AirAsia X together have orders for 385 new planes. Those new planes alone have enough seats to put an additional 60,000 passengers in the sky at the same time. Many of those planes will make multiple flights a day, sending that figure even higher.Indonesia’s Lion Air has an order for 234 jets from Airbus and another 301 from Boeing. That’s in additional to the 107 Boeing jets it currently flies.They’re just two of the numerous low budget airlines that have opened up in the past decade, mostly in Southeast Asia, to service the growing demand for affordable air travel.Even China, which for years has enforced restrictive policies aimed at supporting the three dominant state-owned carriers, is starting to give budget airlines a chance.Last month, China’s aviation regulator, the Civil Aviation Administration of China, said it would lower barriers for setting up a low cost airline, simplify approval procedures, cut charges for airports in lower-tier cities and encourage older airports to revamp terminals for budget carriers.“The reins are loosened,” said Will Horton, an analyst at CAPA The Center for Aviation.To keep up, Asian governments are scrambling to build new terminals and runways.Singapore, a wealthy city-state off the southern tip of peninsular Malaysia, expects additions to its airport will within a decade more than double the number of passengers it can handle yearly to 135 million.Airport construction is most rampant in China, with authorities in the world’s second-biggest economy authorizing the construction of dozens of new airports and the expansion of others.“It is clear that airport infrastructure must be expanded to accommodate demand,” said Campbell Wilson, CEO of Singapore-based budget carrier Scoot.He said several airports in the region are already operating near or at capacity including Hong Kong, Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi, Manila, Jakarta and Beijing.“Many more airports will soon reach their limits,” said Wilson.___AP Airline Writer Scott Mayerowitz contributed to this report.

These are the events that folks lament to missing, who wistfully sigh and say, “if only I had know that was this weekend.”Consider this an attempt to ward off the “if onlys” of summer.June is a toast to popular events, featuring the Craft Beer and Wine Fest, a three-day event showcasing the best of Washington’s independent drink makers, especially highlighting the growing number of breweries and wineries in Clark County, running June 9 through June 11 in Esther Short Park, Vancouver’s summer stage.The perennial June highlight in the annual Recycled Arts Festival on June 24 and 25, as regional artists transform refuse into rusty masterpieces. This year will also feature the inaugural Procession of Species, which encourages everyone to create their own mask and costume related to animals or natural elements, linking art making with conservation efforts.The annual Vancouver Rodeo will be the bridge between June and July, as cowboys and cowgirls compete at the Clark County Saddle Club from June 30 to July 3. There will also be dancing, celebrations and plenty of boots. The rodeo also frames the many Fourth of July celebrations that will take place, from the Port of Camas-Washougal’s riverside concert and fireworks, to Ridgefield’s day-long community celebration, also capped by fireworks. Yacolt will be offering up a picnic atmosphere complete with games, while Independence Day at Fort Vancouver will shift to a free event, with evening concerts and food vendors.last_img read more

Zinedine Zidane reveals all on his footballing philosophy

first_imgZinedine Zidane has revealed all on the “footballing philosophy” that he employed while in charge of Real MadridThe French coach led Los Blancos to three Champions League titles in under three full seasons, as well as the La Liga crown in 2016/17.Zidane sat down with the UEFA to discuss why was keen to get Real playing a possession game and how he always stuck to his principle of playing football that wins games, regardless of whoever is your opponent.“I always remained faithful to the footballing philosophy that I had conveyed to my players, regardless of who our opponents were,” said the 46-year-old.“When you have the ball, you’re not trying to win it back, so you’re normally in less danger. You can also make your opponents run and tire them out.“Knowing that my players had the necessary skill set, I felt an obligation to strengthen our identity as a possession-based team – not possession for possession’s sake, but possession for the purposes of attacking our opponents.“At the same time, having possession is no guarantee of victory!”Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.Zidane admitted that he often did a lot of analysing on his team.But he decided not to tell the players everything in order ensure they would continue playing their natural game.He added: “At Real Madrid, my coaching staff and I used to spend time on team-level analysis, but we limited what we passed on, as I wanted our team to remain focused on our own game.“However, I spent time on individual analysis during the week, and I had a word with each player before each match.“When you’re coaching Real Madrid, you have to win everything, while maintaining a certain standard of play – that’s my philosophy.”Zidane is currently on a sabbatical after leaving Real at the end of last season.last_img read more

Winamp 58 Beta leak appears on the Web

first_imgWinamp 5.8 Beta leak appears on the Web by Martin Brinkmann on September 16, 2018 in Music and Video – Last Update: October 19, 2018 – 41 commentsA beta version of the upcoming Winamp 5.8 media player found its way to the darker side of the Web where it is now being distributed heavily.Winamp, which was once a very popular media player for Microsoft Windows devices and is still used by die-hard fans up to this day, has had a rough patch in recent years.AOL, the then-owner of Winamp, announced in 2013 that it would shut down the service and the Internet Radio directory Shoutcast.  The company sold Winamp in a turn of events later that year to Radionomy, owners of a platform to create, discover, and listen-to online radio stations.While that meant that Winamp was saved for the moment, it did not really improve the situation otherwise; new Winamp versions were not released and while developers did mention here and there that a new version was in the works, nothing came out of it in the almost 5 years after Radionomy’s acquisition of Winamp.Update: Winamp 5.8 has been released officially. You can check the changelog here and download it there as well.A Winamp developer revealed in 2016 that work was underway on Winamp 5.8 but that the team did not want to release the beta version at the time because it would lack quite a bit of functionality. A forum post on the official Winamp forum listed the changes of the beta version.Neowin reported today that a beta version of Winamp 5.8 leaked on the Web. It appears to the the “real deal” but a version from October 2016. It is certainly not something that you would install on a production machine or on anything really that is outside of a sandbox or virtual environment.Select Help > About Winamp to check the version of the player. There you find listed the version and the release date of the build (which is October 2016).A scan on Virustotal returns three hits out of 62 different engines; likely false positives. The beta version comes with quite a few important changes including the following ones:Winamp 5.8 is fully compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 8.1Minimum required operating system is Windows XP Service Pack 3.All Pro license features have been removed.Replaced proprietary decoders for mp3, aac, H.264 and Mpeg-4 with open source or free to use decoders.DRM support removed.CD ripping and playback uses Winodws API.Windows Audio (WASAPI) support.Shared DLL files are stored in Winamp\Shared.MP3 Encoder must be downloaded manually.Added an option to disable video support completely.Closing Words and verdictConsidering that the build is from October 2016, it is clear that development is progressing at a snail-speed pace. Whether Winamp 5.8 Final will ever be released is up for debate; what is clear is that lots of users seem to be interested in Winamp despite it being more dead than alive for a long time.It will be tough for the player to compete with regularly updated audio players such as AIMP, MusicBee, or the classic foobar2000.Now You: Would you switch back to Winamp?SummaryArticle NameWinamp 5.8 Beta leak appears on the WebDescriptionA beta version of the upcoming Winamp 5.8 media player found its way to the darker side of the Web where it is now being distributed heavily.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Report urges major steps to help victims of cardiac arrest

first_img Top holiday drink recipes Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Check your body, save your life Mesa family survives lightning strike to home New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Comments   Share   The American Heart Association — which along with the American Red Cross, American College of Cardiology and the federal government had requested the IOM’s study — welcomed the recommendations.Cardiac arrest is “the most critically ill state a human being can be in,” said Dr. Robert W. Neumar of the University of Michigan, who chairs a heart association emergency care committee. The nation needs to create a culture where “if someone collapses in front of you with cardiac arrest, it’s your obligation to help.”Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. That’s not the whole toll: An additional 200,000 cardiac arrests occur in hospitals every year, and even there only a quarter of patients survive, the report found.Cardiac arrest is not a heart attack — it’s worse. It means the heart abruptly stops beating, its electrical activity knocked out of rhythm. CPR can buy critical time if it’s started immediately, but Tuesday’s report concludes the nation must take key steps to give victims a better shot.“Cardiac arrest survival rates are unacceptably low,” said Dr. Robert Graham of George Washington University, who chaired the IOM committee’s investigation. “There is a lot an individual can do to assist somebody if they witness one, and to work with their communities to improve the system of response.”What to do may sound straightforward: Call 911, and then start quick, hard compressions of the person’s chest until trained responders arrive. If a device called an AED — an automated external defibrillator — is available, use it.In reality, the IOM committee said fear, not understanding what cardiac arrest is, lack of first-aid training and concern about legal liability can hamper response and cost precious time. Each year, less than 3 percent of the U.S. population receives training in CPR or defibrillator use, while some European countries mandate training, the report found. –National standards are needed for emergency medical systems, to ensure that 911 callers are talked through how to provide CPR.–The National Institutes of Health should expand research for better treatments. Defibrillators attempt to shock the heart back into rhythm so it can resume beating, but most out-of-hospital cardiac arrests aren’t the kind of abnormal rhythms that a shock can fix, said IOM committee member Dr. Lance Becker of the University of Pennsylvania. Yet the report found the NIH spends far less on cardiac arrest research than on other cardiovascular problems.–Hospitals should have to meet national accreditation standards on cardiac arrest care. Survival of patients who suffer cardiac arrest while hospitalized for some other reason can vary by 10 percent between hospitals, IOM found.Improvement is possible, the IOM found, calling some communities examples. In King County, Washington, there’s a 62 percent survival rate among patients with a specific shockable form of cardiac arrest if they collapse in front of someone. Policymakers there have spent decades studying what care works best, and getting bystanders and professionals on board with response practices. Sponsored Stories Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Moreover, there are wide disparities in outcomes: One study found that survival ranged from about 8 percent to 40 percent across 10 different communities.On Tuesday, the IOM called for a major public education effort to teach people how to recognize and react to cardiac arrest — including making CPR training a graduation requirement for high school. According to the American Heart Association, Connecticut just became the 24th state to pass legislation to do that.State and local health departments should team with health groups to create “a culture of action,” the IOM recommended. It also urged employers to stock defibrillators and train workers to use them, and expanded access to CPR training for people over age 65 and their caregivers.Good Samaritan laws provide varying legal protection by state. At the same time, laymen shouldn’t feel they have to provide perfect care, said IOM committee member Dr. Tom Aufderheide of the Medical College of Wisconsin.“Any CPR and any early defibrillation delivered by the public is better than no care at all,” he said.Other recommendations:–The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should create a national registry of cardiac arrest. There are no good statistics on this killer, the IOM said, calling its own numbers the best available estimates. A registry would track outcomes so communities could take steps to improve. The CDC said it will review the recommendation. WASHINGTON (AP) — Would you know what to do if you see someone collapse, not breathing — a loved one at home, a co-worker at the office, a stranger on the street? Far too many Americans die of cardiac arrest, and now a major new report urges a national campaign to improve survival in part by making sure more bystanders know how to help.Every year, about 395,000 people suffer cardiac arrest in their homes or other non-hospital settings — and less than 6 percent of them survive, the Institute of Medicine estimated Tuesday.
