Indias CBI tells court no help from Sri Lanka in Rajiv murder

A multi-agency probe was set up in 1998 on the recommendation of the Jain Commission which investigated the conspiracy.On Tuesday, the Supreme Court had asked the Centre to take a decision within three months on a 2016 letter by Tamil Nadu government seeking its concurrence on releasing seven convicts in the assassination case.The letter written on March 2, 2016, had said that while the state government has already decided to release the seven convicts, it is necessary to seek the Centre’s concurrence as per an apex court order of 2015.Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated on the night of May 21, 1991 at Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu by a woman suicide bomber of the separatist Lankan Tamil outfit LTTE, identified as Dhanu, at an election rally.Dhanu greeted him at a rally in Sriperumbudur town with a bomb strapped to her chest. Fourteen others, including Dhanu herself, were also killed. (Colombo Gazette) India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has told the Supreme Court in India that  Sri Lankan authorities were not cooperating in the investigations into the assassination of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.A convict in the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi has moved the Supreme Court requesting to reopen the case and cancel 1999 conviction order, the Press Trust of India reported. In 2017, Perarivalan had asked for a reprieve saying that the CBI dropped the part in his confession where he said he had “absolutely no idea” what the batteries were for.The CBI told SC that the conspiracy behind the bomb that killed former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi could not be investigated as “Sri Lankan authorities were not cooperating”.Perarivalan was 19 when he was arrested weeks after the assassination. He spent 14 years in solitary confinement after being sentenced to death. That was changed to life term by the Supreme Court in 2014. The move comes on Wednesday after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said the apex court that it could not properly investigate the bomb that killed the former prime minister because it “got no help from Sri Lanka” in establishing the origin of the conspiracy.A bench comprising Justices Ranjan Gogoi and R Banumathi asked the CBI to file its response to the application filed by convict AG Perarivalan within three weeks and posted the matter for hearing on February 21. In his application, Perarivalan has said that he is languishing in jail for the past 26 years. AG Perarivalan, who has spent 26 years in jail, was convicted of supplying two nine-volt batteries for the belt-bomb that killed Rajiv Gandhi in 1991, and sentenced to life in jail. During the hearing on Wednesday, advocate Gopal Shankaranarayanan, representing Perarivalan told the court that he has filed an application seeking recall of the 1999 judgement by the top court and the CBI should respond to it. In its May 1999 order, the Supreme Court had upheld the death sentence of four convicts– Perarivalan, Murugan, Santham and Nalini in the assassination case.However, in April 2000, the Tamil Nadu governor commuted the death sentence of Nalini on the basis of state government’s recommendation and an appeal by former Congress president Sonia Gandhi.Later the top court had on February 18, 2014 commuted the death sentence of Perarivalan to life imprisonment, along with two other condemned prisoners — Santhan and Murugan — on grounds of a delay of 11 years in deciding their mercy pleas by the Centre. read more

Organizing and mobilizing social justice at Congress 2014

To do this at Congress 2014, SJRI is helping to promote the social justice events of 21 academic and community organizations, including co-sponsoring 11 high-profile events.“Connections among academics, activists and community partners will produce knowledge that addresses urgent social problems and opens new pathways to social change locally, nationally, and globally,” says Janet Conway, Canada Research Chair in Social Justice, and SJRI affiliate.The institute represents a new organizational model for thematic and transdisciplinary research in social justice in an academic setting. It aims to connect the dots between disciplines without having one true “home” association.“We wouldn’t want a home association because that’s the point,” says Andrea Doucet, Canada Research Chair in Gender, Work and Care and SJRI affiliate.“When we talk about social justice issues we’re focused on problematics,” says Doucet. “And problematics require multiple approaches because, often, it’s not just one disciplinary approach that’s going to make sense of it.”Key events at Congress 2014 that Brock’s Social Justice Research Institute have had a hand in helping to organize or promote, include:* Performance of neXT Company Theatre’s KhalidaSaturday, May 24, 8 p.m., Sean O’Sullivan Theatre, Brock UniversityKhalida features the confessions and testimony of Said, a man in flight from a conflict zone in the Middle East who has found himself in an oil producing country in the economic North.

At Congress 2014, Brock’s Social Justice Research Institute (SJRI) will be creating a transdisciplinary space to foster dialogue and galvanize colleagues from the social sciences and humanities around themes of social justice.A key priority for the newly created institute is to break down boundaries and connect the threads of social justice scholarship taking place across various disciplines. read more

Mens soccer prepares to take on No 7 Notre Dame

Shelby Lum / Photo editorFreshman Craig Zahour plays the ball up the field during a match against IPFW on Aug. 20, at Jesse Owen’s Memorial Stadium. OSU won, 2-0.The Ohio State men’s soccer team will finish exhibition matches when it travels to South Bend, Ind., to play No. 7 Notre Dame. Unranked OSU is currently 1-1 in exhibition this year after falling to West Virginia 1-0 and defeating Indiana University — Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) 2-0 at home.Like the Buckeyes, the Fighting Irish enter this game with an exhibition record of 1-1, after splitting back-to-back road games, losing to Creighton 1-0 and beating Drake 2-0.Notre Dame is coming off a season in which, at one point, it was the top-ranked team in the country, going 17-4-1 and finishing with the program’s best record since 1987. The team is hoping to continue that success despite the loss of two first-team All-Americans, including Big East Offensive Player of the Year forward Ryan Finley, who scored 21 of the Irish’s 52 goals.OSU will treat this game like a regular season one, but coach John Bluem will still be using the exhibition contest as a learning experience for his team.“They (Notre Dame) were the No. 1 team in the country for a while last year,” said Bluem, who is entering his 17thseason at the helm. “It’ll be a really good test to go on the road and play a team of that quality and again, it will expose some of the weaknesses of our team and the strengths of our team as well.”OSU junior midfielder Yianni Sarris, who assisted on both Buckeye goals against IPFW, said that the team will prepare for Notre Dame like it would for a regular season game, even though it knows it is still preseason.“You got to be ready for the season,” Sarris said. “The regular season is just around the corner and we’re going at it 100 percent.”Sarris will look to become a leader of this team after transferring from Florida Gulf Coast University before the 2012 season.The Buckeyes will begin regular season play when they face off against UNC-Wilmington and Northern Illinois in theWolstein Classic Aug. 30 and Sept. 1 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

If she passed, she would become a licentiate of the society, entitling her to use the letters LRPS after her name.Amelia Christmas, spokesman for the Society, said: “The Duchess is a great, positive role model for anyone interested in photography. She has proved her own skills with her portraits of her children, which are not just family snapshots. Confident in her own ability, she bucked tradition by dispensing with “official” photographers to take her own shots, which have been reproduced in newspapers, magazines and calendars around the world. Queen with cine camera She accepted the Society’s offer of an honorary membership last month, and joins such distinguished names as Annie Leibovitz – who has twice photographed the Queen – David Bailey and the newly-knighted war photographer Sir Don McCullin as members of the Society.

They included a photograph of a misty Mount Kinabalu – the highest point in Borneo at 13,400ft above sea level – and a black-and-white image of an orangutan.She continues a long royal tradition of amateur photography and film-making. The Queen loved to shoot cine films during family holidays and during private moments on royal tours, notably aboard the former Royal Yacht Britannia, and both Princess Margaret and her husband Lord Snowdon – a professional photographer – were members of the Royal Photographic Society. Prince Harry also loves taking pictures on royal tours whenever he gets the chance.Queen Victoria and Prince Albert became the Society’s first patrons months after its formation in 1853, and commissioned the Society’s then head to teach the royal children photography.The Queen is the current Patron, granting the Society a royal charter in 2004.Dr Michael Pritchard, chief executive of the RPS, said: “The Duchess of Cambridge is the latest in a long line of royal photographers and the Society is pleased to recognise her talent and enthusiasm through honorary membership.” Prince George kissing Princess Charlotte Show more center_img “We exist to promote photography at all levels, whether it’s with a smartphone or a more expensive camera, and we’re here to help people improve their skills.“So we hope that this will be the beginning of a future relationship with the Duchess because she has such a keen interest in the subject.”The Duchess began publishing her work when her parents Michael and Carole Middleton asked her to take pictures for their Party Pieces website in 2008, and since then she has been able to pick up tips from such famous names as Mario Testino when she has had official portraits taken of herself.

Portal speedrun world record set at 9m 25s

first_imgApparently the video above is the current world record for a speed run of Valve’s brilliant game Portal.The completion time is exactly 9:25.567, with most of that wasted travelling in elevators. The player, YouTube user Transgenic86, does not use any cheats or hacks. He does explain, however, that glitches are taken advantage of:This speedrun uses a majority of the glitches in the game. Unfortunately, it does not use the acute angle glitch, which might be the most useful glitch in the game, if used correctly. He’s also spent a lot of time working on this speedrun:I don’t believe anyone else in there right mind would try to do what I have done in this video. I completed the first segment on September 13, 2008, 06:12 AM and the last segment on July 03, 2010, 08:32 PM. Almost 2 years of working on this. It’s a bit dizzying to watch, but someone has to hold the record and this is how you have to play to get it.

How to install PS3 firmware 446 and fix your bricked console

first_imgOn June 19, Sony may have rendered your PS3 unusable due to releasing firmware update 4.45 and bricking some consoles. The fault seemed to be related to machines whose hard drive had been replaced, but other problems reared their head even if your PS3 continued to work.The frustration this caused gamers was made all the worse by the fact Sony announced they were going to keep everyone waiting until June 27 to issue a fix. Well, it’s now the 27th and Sony has indeed released a new firmware that solves the issues 4.45 introduced.If your PS3 is still functioning, then installing firmware update 4.46 should work as normal. However, if 4.45 bricked your machine then the process of getting it working again is a little more involved. First up, you’re going to need a USB flash drive with at least 168MB of free space on it. CECHA00/CECHB00 model PS3 owners can also use a Memory Stick, SD card, or CompactFlash to carry and apply the update.Whatever storage method you use, you need to create a new folder on the drive called “PS3” and then download the new firmware to it.Before applying the update you need to boot your PS3 in to Safe Mode. This is a pretty simple process:With the PS3 powered off (power light is red) hold the power button down until you have heard 3 beeps then let goRepeat the first step until you’ve heard 3 more beeps, but the last one will be a double beepSafe Mode has been successfully achieved if you see an on screen message asking for a controller to be plugged inSo, with Safe Mode activated and a controller plugged in, insert your flash drive and select option 6 “System Update.” Then press Select and Start at the same time to initiate the update from the USB stick. The rest of the process should work like a normal update.If you get into trouble then Sony has a very detailed step-by-step guide about how to apply the update. But it is as easy as loading the firmware to a USB stick, holding the power button down twice, and choosing System Update from Safe Mode. You should be up and running again in just a few minutes.last_img read more

Sinodinos grilled at ICAC

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Arthur Sinodinos’ six-hour testimony before the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) – over his time on the board of Australian Water Holdings (AWH) – left the former assistant treasurer’s actions open to question this week – after he admitted he did nothing to investigate why a company he chaired was charging exorbitant expenses to the state utility Sydney Water.The ICAC inquiry is looking into AWH and its links to disgraced ex-Labor MP Eddie Obeid, and heard that Mr Sinodinos – a former AWH director and NSW Liberal Party treasurer – stood to make up to $20 million if AWH won a lucrative contract with Sydney Water.During his appearance at the inquiry on Thursday he was asked to defend what he did to earn an alleged $200,000 salary from AWH for undertaking between 25 and 45 hours of work a year.Mr Sinodinos told the hearing that he was not brought into the company as a financial officer or political lobbyist but “in a business sense…as a door-opener.” AWH paid $72,000 in donations to the NSW Liberal Party when the Senator was on its board, which he also denied knowledge of.In testimony punctuated by either “I don’t recall” or “I don’t recollect”, Senator Sinodinos said he had no knowledge of many of the intricate workings of AWH’s business dealings, and that for three years his friend and Liberal fundraiser Paul Nicolaou was on a monthly retainer of $5000 to lobby on behalf of AWH. Evidence presented to the inquiry suggests that three Liberal-aligned lobbying companies were receiving $17,000 a month from AWH while Mr Sinodinos was a director, at a time when the company was hard-pushed to meet obligations to pay tax and superannuation.Without the inquiry’s findings presenting a complete vindication of Senator Sinodinos’ actions at AWH, the damage to his political ambitions could be irreversible. A return to cabinet for one of the Liberal’s most articulate power brokers may be a long way off. The ICAC inquiry is likely to run until the end of next week.last_img read more

Kodak abandonne lappareil photo numérique

first_imgKodak abandonne l’appareil photo numériqueKodak traverse une période sombre de son histoire. La société en faillite a annoncé se retirer du marché de l’appareil photo numérique et vouloir recentrer ses activités vers le monde de l’entreprise.Le fabricant américain Kodak aurait trouvé une manière de sortir de la crise qu’elle traverse actuellement. L’entreprise a annoncé, après s’être placé en faillite en janvier dernier, sortir progressivement de la fabrication d’appareils photos numériques, de caméras ou de cadres photo numériques pour recentrer ses activités vers le monde de l’entreprise. Kodak va capitaliser sur ses acquis dans l’impression, que ce soit dans le domaine de la bureautique ou du tirage photo indique Clubic.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Mais ce retrait du marché grand public ne sera pas total, Kodak compte bien conserver une place dans les magasins via sa ligne d’accessoires, qu’ils soient pour ses appareils photo ou des modèles concurrents. Egalement, on retrouvera le papier photo et les films argentiques qui ont fait la réputation de la marque.”Depuis quelques temps, la stratégie de Kodak consiste à optimiser ses marges dans le domaine de la prise de vue en réduisant sa gamme de produits, sa couverture géographique et sa présence dans la distribution. L’annonce d’aujourd’hui est l’extension logique de ce processus”, résume Pradeep Jotwani, directeur marketing de Kodak, dans un communiqué.Pour effectuer sa restructuration, Kodak a réussi après sa mise en faillite à obtenir un crédit de 950 millions de dollars sur 18 mois. L’entreprise a besoin de faire des économies, 100 millions de dollars par an et l’arrêt de la production de matériel devrait l’y aider. Le 10 février 2012 à 18:20 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Jawonio recognised as breastfeedingfriendly workplace

first_imgThe Rockland County Department of Health in New York has recognised disability services organisation Jawonio as a breastfeeding-friendly workplace as part of its Breastfeeding Promotion and Support Programme.Jawonio, which has 1,100 employees across the Rockland and Lower Westchester county, is the first employer locally to receive the Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite Recognition award for implementing best practice around breastfeeding, as set out in the programme.The Breastfeeding Promotion and Support Programme requires employers to create a written breastfeeding-friendly office policy and implement environmental changes, such as designated lactation spaces and training staff. The programme further encourages employers to support working mothers while they continue to breastfeed and return to work.Organisations that achieve these measures are then recognised with the Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite Recognition award. The employers are presented with a plaque and certificate in acknowledgement, and their business is listed on the Rockland County Department of Health’s website.Jawonio received its recognition award on 14 June 2018.Jill Warner, chief executive officer at Jawonio, said: “We are proud to be a part of a county that strives to meet the needs of its citizens. This Rockland County Breastfeeding Friendly Designation is a wonderful way to share the pride at Jawonio and how much we value the backbone of our organisation, our staff. Our mums are so grateful and happy, and happy mums are positive and productive staff members, and happy and healthy babies are the result of this collaboration.”Dr Patricia Schnabel Ruppert, Rockland County commissioner of health, added: “One of the most commonly cited barriers to continuing breastfeeding is returning to work. This is due to the lack of flexibility for pumping milk during the work day, lack of accommodations to pump or store breast milk and concerns about support from employers and colleagues. It truly takes a village to support breastfeeding and we encourage employers to work with us to make their worksites breastfeeding-friendly environments.”last_img read more

More than 14 million employers have completed autoenrolment duties

first_imgMore than 1.4 million (1,448,774) UK employers have completed their pensions auto-enrolment duties, as at January 2019, according to research by The Pensions Regulator (TPR).Its Declaration of compliance report: July 2012-end January 2019, which is based on information submitted by employers when they complete their declaration of compliance documentation, also found that, since 2012, more than 10 million (10,003,000) employees are now saving for their retirement after being automatically enrolled into a workplace pension.Lesley Titcomb, chief executive officer at TPR, said: “We have worked with employers of all sizes to ensure automatic enrolment is a success and we are delighted that 10 million people are newly saving or saving more towards their retirement.“The vast majority of employers continue to support automatic enrolment. They’ve played a vital role in creating a savings culture by enrolling [employees] so that they can now expect a pension as part and parcel of their employment.”Between September 2015 and January 2019, 89,149 employers confirmed completion of their pensions automatic re-enrolment duties to remain compliant. This means that 603,000 eligible employees have been successfully re-enrolled into their workplace pension over this period.Paul Waters, partner at Hymans Robertson, said: “Despite this obvious good news, it is not time to relax and think that this is ‘job done’. Many employees will assume that their pension contributions will provide them with a comfortable income in retirement, since the [auto-enrolment] pension rate is being set automatically by a combination of the government and their employer. In reality, they will be dismayed to find that they simply haven’t saved enough when they come to retirement. It’s important to remember that this is a marathon.”Paul McGlone, president at The Society of Pension Professionals (SPP), said: “Having 10 million additional people saving for their retirement is a fantastic achievement, and one which the government and industry should rightly feel proud about. This has only happened through symbiosis, through government and industry working together to deliver a common goal.“What we need is more of this type of collaboration across the industry. Having enrolled people, we now head out into more challenging waters where the tricky messages around the benefits of increasing contribution rates and adequacy of retirement need to be navigated. We need people to understand that auto-enrolment alone may not maintain their standard of living and that in a world where annuitisation is unpopular, drawdown may not be cost-effective for modest amounts.”last_img read more

Southeast King Opener to Close After 8 Days

first_imgSoutheast commercial trollers will soon take a break from the king salmon harvest, but the final target this year remains anyone’s guess.The Alaska Department of Fish & Game announced Tuesday (July 7) that the first king opening of the summer will close at midnight on Wednesday (July 8), after eight days of fishing.That opening has been longer than many trollers expected. This year’s king salmon quota was the subject of a months-long dispute between Alaska and its neighbors to the south, including Canada, Washington and Oregon. Alaska challenged the pre-season forecast, which called for relatively low numbers of Chinook in Southeast. In the end, however, the state agreed to fish under the lower estimate, to remain in compliance with the U.S.-Canada Pacific Salmon Treaty.Still, Fish & Game hasn’t released a final number for this year’s king salmon quota, so it’s impossible to know how many kings the fleet is targeting. Even fishermen are in the dark.Exact numbers on how many kings have been taken so far won’t be available for a few weeks, while the Department tabulates fish tickets. But Fish & Game expects a second king opening for trollers in August.last_img read more

9 Indian men stranded in UAE after accepting fake job offers on

first_imgDubai: Nine Indians have been stranded in the UAE after accepting fake job offers through social media, according to a media report on Sunday. The men from Kerala, who are currently stranded in Al Ain and Ajman, claim they met the agent named Shafeeq on WhatsApp and paid up to Rs 70,000 for visit visas to the UAE, Khaleej Times reported. The incident comes months after the Consulate General of India in Dubai asked job seekers to stay away from fraudulent job advertisements luring Indians to the UAE. Also Read – Prominent Hong Kong activists targeted in wave of arrests Advertise With Us The Consulate said “job seekers should not fall prey to such bogus job offers and in case of any doubt, may seek clarification from the Consulate”. Fazil, one of the victims from Malappuram district in Kerala, said that he received the job offer on WhatsApp. “A WhatsApp message that promised jobs in the UAE within 15 days was being widely shared in Kerala, and I also received the forwarded message. I really thought it was genuine as many people were showing interest,” he was quoted as saying in the report. Also Read – Weak European inflation bolsters case for stimulus Advertise With Us Fazil said that he had a conversation with the agent who convinced him of a job in a supermarket in Al Ain. “He told me I will get Dh1,200 (Rs 22,496) as monthly salary and free food and accommodation. I was going through tough times, and thought it would be a good start for me,” said Fazil, who is a qualified technician. Fazil said he mortgaged his mother’s gold ornaments to cough up the money and cannot return home without a job. Mohammed Rafeeq, 30, another victim from Kozhikode in Kerala, said he borrowed Rs 70,000 from friends and family for the job. Advertise With Us “Nine people including myself managed to pay up. And the agent formed a separate WhatsApp group for nine of us and we were communicating with each other,” he said, adding the agent told them that they would be travelling together to the UAE. But as soon as they landed in Abu Dhabi on July 15, the men said they realised they got duped. Rafeeq said a local agent named Shameer met them at the airport and split the men into two groups. “Four people were sent to Ajman and five of us of were taken to Al Ain. When asked about our jobs, he said the supermarket official is in jail and hence they will have to find new jobs for us. We immediately knew we were in trouble,” Rafeeq was quoted as saying by the paper. Indian embassy in Abu Dhabi has stepped in and have offered to assist in sending the men home. Rafeeq said he and his friends are surviving on the allowance given by the embassy. “We have repeatedly highlighted the need for ECR passport holders to not come to UAE on visit visa for employment purpose,” Ambassador Navdeep Singh Suri told the paper. Smita Pant, Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy said they have started pushing for legal action against unscrupulous agents in India. “We have reported about 40 such cases to Indian authorities and police investigations are on. That is important to deter these illegal agents from duping more people,” the official said. Pant said the embassy is encouraging victims to file a police case against the agents.last_img read more
