UAPA bill clears LS hurdle Shah defends amendments

first_imgNew Delhi: Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday defended amendments to an anti-terror law, saying they are essential to keep law enforcement agencies one step ahead of terrorists.Responding to a debate in Lok Sabha on a bill seeking to amend the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, he asserted anti-terror laws would not be misused and used only to root out terrorism. He said that provision in UAPA (amendment) bill, which was later passed in the Lower House by a voice vote, to designate a person suspected to have terror links as a terrorist is necessary to root out terror.

He said, in the name of ideology, some people promote urban Maoism and the government has no sympathy towards them. The government fights terrorism and it should not matter which party is in power, Shah said, referring to amendments made in anti-terror laws by successive governments. During a division of votes, demanded by AIMIM’s Asaduddin Owaisi for consideration of the bill, as many as 287 MPs supported it and only eight opposed it. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayAmendments brought in by some opposition members were also defeated by huge numbers during the division of votes. When the AIMIM member insisted on a division of votes over amendments, Speaker Om Birla quoted rule to say that he can ask the members supporting or opposing them to stand up for counting, if he feels it appropriate. “The only purpose of this law is to root out terrorism. We will ensure that this law will not be misused,” Shah asserted. The Congress under the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had brought in UAPA, he said, targeting the opposition party, whose members earlier questioned the rationale behind the law. Radical preachers are propagating the ideology of hate and terrorism, Shah said, claiming that terrorism is born out of a person’s mindset and is not about institutions. “Some (opposition) members said that we have destroyed the federal structure by bringing this amendment. If the federal structure has been destroyed then it was destroyed during the UPA time as the law was enacted then,” he said. If somebody indulges in terrorist activities then definitely the NIA will seize his computers and other devices, he added.last_img read more

Modi afraid because time for him to go has arrived Rahul Gandhi

first_imgNew Delhi: Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress President Rahul Gandhi Wednesday said his expression during his address to the nation betrayed his anxiety that “his time to go has come”. Addressing a convention of the party’s Other Backward Classes (OBC) department, Gandhi said the prime minister has realised that the Congress will now give justice to the poor. His reference was to the newly-announced NYAY (minimum income guarantee scheme) whereby the party promises to give Rs 72,000 per year to five crore poor families in the country to bring them out of poverty. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ The Congress president also assured the OBC community that they would see many more MPs and MLAs from among them as the Congress had earlier given two OBC chief ministers to the country. “He (PM) made the country wait for 45 minutes for his announcement, did you look at his face? He has realised that the Congress will now give justice…Modi is now afraid that his time to go has come,” he told the gathering at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium here, ahead of the April-May parliamentary election. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K In an unprecedented broadcast to the nation on television, radio and social media, Modi on Wednesday announced that India had demonstrated anti-satellite missile capability by shooting down a live satellite, describing it as a rare achievement that puts the country in an exclusive club of space superpowers. Attacking the prime minister, Gandhi said he had lied about giving Rs 15 lakh to people in the run-up to the 2014 election, but the Congress would give Rs 72,000 as part of the proposed income guarantee scheme. “We won’t be able to give Rs 15 lakh, but we won’t lie. We will give Rs 3.60 lakh crore in the bank accounts of the poor,” he said. “What we say, we do. I am guaranteeing your community (OBCs) that in the coming days, the Congress will give you space. Today you see two OBC CMs, you will see much more OBC MPs, MLAs,” he said. “We have written in our manifesto that any youth, be it from any category, doesn’t need any permission for the first three years for starting a business…We want make in India, not made by Ambani…we want make in India, not made by Ambani in France,” he said. Gandhi has been alleging that businessman Anil Ambani has benefitted from the Rafale deal with French defence firm Dassault, an allegation denied by the industrialist and the government.last_img read more

In Iraq UNs focal point for conflictrelated sexual violence visits abused women

The United Nations focal point for ending conflict-related sexual violence is in Iraq where she today met with survivors of rape and other abuse by the Islamic State (ISIL).Zainab Hawa Bangura, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict, visited the Girls and Women Support and Treatment Centre in Dohuk Governorate, northern Iraq. Accompanied by Gyorgy Busztin, the Deputy Secretary-General of the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), she met with women and girls who had escaped from Mosul, where Iraqi forces launched an offensive two weeks ago to dislodge ISIL. According to a press release, the Centre – a collaboration with the Dohuk Directorate General and in support from the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) – is “at the forefront of addressing the needs of the Yazidi sexual violence survivors,” including medical and psychosocial support.ISIL has systematically targeted the Yazidi community with rape and other sexual violence, including sexual slavery and forced marriage, according to the Office of Ms. Bangura whose legal and investigative teams have been working to aid survivors from the community. Ms. Bangura has repeatedly called for a multipronged approach from the global to the local levels, to aid the survivors and their families and help them reclaim a role in their community.As part of her visit to Iraq, Ms. Bangura has discussed the need for such support with Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Nechervan Barzani. In addition, she held discussions with Jassim Mohammed Al-Jaf of the Ministry of Migration and Displaced and with Faed Zaidan, the head of the High Judicial Council of Iraq. She also met with Sunni religious leaders to discuss reintegration of survivors of conflict-related sexual violence, and to ensure that children born of rape are not ostracized by the community.

Peyton Manning Undefeated as RecordBreaking Season Continues

Peyton Manning moved second on the career passing list with 61,371 yards Photo: GETTY IMAGESDenver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning continued his record-breaking 2013 season with a high-scoring 51-48 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.Manning was so in the groove he did something he hasn’t done since October 2008–he ran for a touchdown, which can be seen in the GIF below.The 37-year-old veteran executed a naked bootleg on a 3rd-and-goal play in the second quarter so flawlessly that it fooled both the Cowboys defense and the CBS camera crew. Manning practically walked into the endzone with not even one Cowboy defenders’ eye on him.When it was all over, Manning had five touchdown passes and 414 passing yards, breaking Daunte Culpepper’s 1998 record for most touchdown passes thrown in the first five games of a season and taking his team to a 5-0 start for the year. read more

Death snuck in and took a handballer away – remembering Barry Nash

first_imgReproduced with permission from RollOutHandball.comDEATH SNUCK IN and took a young handballer away last Sunday week. Barry Nash from Clare, 18 years of age, is gone.The ripples of shock are still spreading in the small pool of players and supporters, in Ireland and around the world. Barry was a second-year student in UCD, a brilliant hurler with club and county and an outstanding handballer.It jags like an electric shock when such a tragedy occurs, only the empty sadness lingers. The most sickening thing when a young person dies, in many ways, is the thought of what they could have gone on to achieve, the gifts and talents that have been lost to the world. It brings to mind Michael Longley’s poem, Wreaths – “The books he had read, the songs he could sing”…Handball is like a mini-version of the GAA itself – a degree or two separates everyone. No player is more than two phone calls or emails away. When two handballers meet for the first time, they are not strangers; they already have friends and interests in common.That’s part of the reason why the sport is so popular at college and university level – there are great sessions after tournaments, where literally everyone seems to get on, and those friendships endure.I didn’t know Barry personally. He wouldn’t have known me. I first saw him play when he was 13 years old, in Kingscourt, and I followed his progress. He was a powerful, athletic boy, and in time he would win titles at home and in America, culminating in an All-Ireland minor doubles championship.His brother, Diarmaid, a few years his senior, has progressed to the top rung on the ladder. On current form, and with Paul Brady taking a sabbatical, he is the best player in the country, and one of the best in the world.The weekend before last, he competed in a pro tournament in Houston, beating some of the best players in America en route to the final, where he lost to Luis Moreno, Brady’s foe in the 2012 World Championships final. As he waited for his flight home from Houston International Airport, the call came. His kid brother, after leaving the handball alley in Broadford, had picked up three of his friends, turned the car for Dublin and a return to college and, on the M7, skidded off the road after a sudden hail shower.He was killed instantly.The following morning, unaware of the tragic events, I wrote a piece for TheScore.ie on Diarmaid’s achievement in Texas. No sooner had I hit ‘send’, than the devastating news arrived. I doubt there was ever a longer, more sorrowful journey undertaken than that which Diarmaid must have endured from when he lifted off from American soil.The local community in Scariff rallied around, as they do in such times. There were shuttle buses and stewards at the family home, where Barry lay in repose, a photograph of him smiling with Paul Brady at the end of his coffin.The house was decorated with photographs of Barry and Diarmaid’s sporting achievements, with trophies, medals, hurley sticks and handball gloves – a typically warm, happy family home.It will be a sad place now, for the longest time. We can only hope that Barry’s family – who are held in the highest regard by all who know them – can get over his loss. It will seem like the light has been cruelly extinguished from their lives, but, they say, it’s always darkest before the dawn. Maybe, that’s true. I hope to God, for their sake and those of all who lose loved ones, it is.Freak accidents occur, and it is beyond the human brain to comprehend them. It’s like wondering at the size of the universe, or thinking on what the whole thing is about. We’re not equipped with the tools to solve those riddles. We can’t figure them out. It’s in our nature, though, to try, and try.We all know someone, or several, who have been numbed, the joy of life dimmed, in such circumstances. In time, some people learn to cope, to remember things as they were and accept them as they are. Some do not.There was a photograph posted online last week, in which Barry is clad in a green hurling helmet, grinning, clenching his fist in the driving rain, having struck a goal for his local club. I knew him only as a sportsman, and that is how I will remember him. I hope, with time, his family can learn to adjust, and derive some comfort from the life he lived.Bob Dylan’s words are apt for the death of a young handballer. May his hands always be busy, may his feet always be swift. Even for those of us who didn’t know him, Barry Nash will stay forever young.For more handball news, follow @rollouthandball on Twitter and here on Facebook.

Gmail now lets users make custom themes

first_imgGoogle’s free webmail service, Gmail, has never been about its looks. It’s the sort of webmail program built by engineers and ultimately designed with one main goal in mind: it’s about speed. If you want an attractive webmail interface that mimics a real email client, you go for the likes of Yahoo! Mail. Gmail’s for the guys who want their email as fast as possible, not as pretty as possible.That all said, one of Google’s earliest feature additions to Gmail was theming. There are a number of Gmail themes available within Gmail’s settings, and while most of these are extremely minimal CSS tweaks, they do help in giving Gmail some much needed personalization, and can even help you easily identify which account you’re logged into at a glance.The only problem with Gmail’s previous theme system was that you couldn’t actually make themes for yourself. Now that’s all changes, as Google has just introduced a new “Create Your Own Theme” feature which will allow you to make Gmail look however you want.Making your own theme is actually pretty easy. Mostly, what Gmail now offers is the ability to set colors: highlight color, text color, link colors, background colors, and so on. These user-modifiable color choices can be supplemented with a background image.At the end of the day, no matter how absurd your theme, Gmail should probably run just as fast as it did before. The only way you could really choke it on these theming options is by uploading an absurdly high res picture, and Gmail’s already got a process in place to make sure that that won’t happen.For most of us, Gmail’s default theme is probably fine, negligibly attractive though it may be… but if you really just must have your kids as the background image for your webmail client, Gmail probably just got a lot better for you.Read more at The Official Gmail Bloglast_img read more

Microsoft Office on iOS available for free but requires a subscription to

first_imgIt has been rumored for quite some time that Microsoft was building a version of Office for iOS. It’s finally here, and get this: it’s free. The suite’s three core apps — Word, Excel, and PowerPoint — are included, and they’re ready to roll on just about any Apple device running iOS 6.1 or better.There’s a catch, however. While Office Mobile for iOS is free in the App Store, you won’t actually be able to use it without a valid Office 365 subscription.While that’s sure to be a let down for an awful lot of iPad and iPhone users, it’s a nice bonus for the million-plus Microsoft customers that are already using Office 365 Home Premium.And if you do happen to be one of those people, the free Office for iOS app won’t count against your 5 PC install limit. You can use the app on 5 iOS devices and still roll Office 365 on 5 Windows or Mac systems.Beyond those million home users, there are millions more working for businesses that have moved away from traditional Office licensing to the evergreen Office 365 cloud. Many of those businesses also started buying smartphones and tablets at a time when Windows hardware just couldn’t compete with the iPhone and iPad — and for them, the arrival of the iOS app is a massive win.Microsoft may very well start offering a paid version of Office for iOS at some point in the future, but it certainly doesn’t have to. The company’s real push here isn’t for sales of the Office app. It’s trying to rustle up additional customers for Office 365, where it can hopefully lock in loyal users for life.last_img read more

Maximum 15 SIMs against one NID BTRC

first_imgsimThe Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) secretary Sarwar Alam on Tuesday said that a user will now be allowed to use maximum 15 SIM cards with his/her national identity (NID) card, reports UNB.This is a three-time increase from the government’s last decision of allowing up to five SIM cards for each user.Earlier on 12 June 2016, the government decided to allow each consumer to use maximum 20 SIM cards and on 4 August last, they decided to cut the number down to five.BTRC took the latest decision under the instruction of high level authorities of the government, he said adding that, the BTRC also directed all the chief executives of all mobile phone operators regarding the matter.The BTRC will close the numbers randomly after 31 December, if anyone found using more than 15 SIM cards with one national identity card, Sarwar told UNB.Consumers who have more than 15 SIM cards are urged to deactivate their extra contact numbers from the respective customer care offices by themselves within 31 December, he added.According to the BTRC, as it is not realistic to determine SIM card numbers for corporate consumers, people who have corporate permission to buy SIM or RIM will be out of this purview.Consumers can find out about the numbers of SIM cards they have against their passport, NID, driving license or birth certificate in two ways-By dialing *16001# and sending the last four digits of NID number when asked through USSD code or, by sending SMS typing the last four digits of NID number and send it to 16001.last_img read more

Create a Raspberry Pi arcade using IKEAs cheapest table

first_imgI’m always looking for fun projects to make in all the spare time I never have. Like for the better part of last year, I have been collecting the parts to build my own RetroPie rig. Arcade games of the 80s and the NES system was what I cut my teeth on, and emulators on the PC just don’t cut it for me. It doesn’t have the same feel as a joystick or controller, and shush, I know you can get a USB one to plug into my machine, but it still doesn’t feel right.It looks like I’ve finally found just what I want to do with my Arduino Leonardo, Raspberry Pi, and old school joystick and perfectly mashable buttons – thanks to spannerspencer at element14. He released the blueprints for transforming one of those inexpensive IKEA LACK side tables into a perfectly retro gaming table!Here’s what you’ll need:A Raspberry Pi 3 Model B – $35.002.5A USB Power Supply – $10.00An Arduino Leonardo – $24.00Balltop Joystick – $8.004 Buttons, you choice of color – $1.40 each ($5.60 total)Arctic USB Powered Speakers – $27.00IKEA LACK Table in Red (or your favorite color) – $13.0017″ LCD 4:3 Monitor – don’t buy new, look on eBay or ask around!Screws, cables, connectors, drill, 13mm drill it, box cutter, tape, clampsNot counting the monitor and the little bits that you may already have lying around your workshop, the project comes in at $122.60! And of course, this is just based on the parts suggested by spannerspencer. I usually grab my LACK tables in IKEA’s scratch-and-dent section. You can get their cool color ones for around $7.00, and their standard black one for $5.00. They’re great if you want to do a custom color job on them to match your gaming space! It’s also good in case you destroy the table during the cutting process, like what happened in the first go around of this build.Of course, it’s not about slapping some pieces together inside a glorified cardboard side table. There is some engineering and computer programming involved. Luckily element14 has all that covered for you. The Arduino Leonardo is what speaks to the Raspberry Pi and the controls to allow them to work. This particular graph will allow you to configure your buttons for the classic Multiple-Arcade-Machine-Eumlator  style of gameplay.As for the programming part – that’s the easiest bit. Aside from some troubleshooting, you should just be able to download the Arduino IDE by plugging it in via USB to your computer, and the guys at element14 have worked out a sketch code that should make the button configuration work smoothly once you’re up and running. Copy the code on their website and paste it into the IDE window, then go to the Tools menu, hit Arduino Leonardo, the Board. Then go back to Tools and select the Leonardo drop down from the Ports menu. Hit upload and your Arduino board is online.Next it’s just a matter of getting your Raspberry Pi up and running, and that’s easier than installing Windows 10. Download and install RetroPie – which you can do so by getting it right here.Like I said, I’ve been sitting on most of these parts for awhile now (though I probably should upgrade to a Pi 3 Model B, because why not) and this looks like a seriously fun project to have around the house when entertaining guests, or when I need a break from writing about how fun it would be to make all these cool things.last_img read more

Hawkers in city to be surveyed before grant of licences

first_imgKolkata: Officials from Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC), Kolkata Police and representatives from the Hawker Sangram Committee will jointly conduct a survey of hawkers in the city. The decision was taken at the meeting of the Town Vending Committee at KMC headquarters on Friday.The committee has been formed by the state government to have a survey of hawkers in the city and issue licences to them, according to the West Bengal Urban Street Vendors (Protection of Livelihood and Regulation of Street Vending) Rules, 2018. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life”The joint committee will soon start the survey and accordingly, we will come up with the hawker policy,” said Member, Mayor-in- Council (Parking) Debasish Kumar, who chaired the meeting. It may be mentioned that hawkers are banned from doing business on roads and are required to leave two-thirds of every pavement they occupy, to let pedestrians walk comfortably. Kolkata Police had already done a survey of the hawkers. However, the Hawker Sangram Committee had raised objections over the exercise and demanded their inclusion while conducting the survey. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed”We expressed our inhibitions over the single party survey as we feel that there may be deprivation of a section of hawkers,” said Saktiman Ghosh, president of the Hawker Sangram Committee. The job of the Town Vending Committee will be to draw up a list of vending and no-vending zones. A no-vending zone would typically include a bus stop, a small pavement and a narrow street or lane. “Road width, traffic flow and pedestrian movement in a particular area will be taken into consideration during the survey. It will take around five months to complete the process,” Ghosh said.last_img read more

Low Credit Score May be Keeping Many Renters from Homeownership

first_imgLow Credit Score May be Keeping Many Renters from Homeownership March 18, 2016 514 Views An analysis of millions of credit reports comparing financial behavior patterns of those who currently rent and those who have a current mortgage revealed that tens of millions of renters might not qualify for a mortgage due to a low credit score—and that a large share of renters have other outstanding debt that is currently in collections, according to the Urban Institute.In a report released Thursday titled Comparing Credit Profiles of American Renters and Owners by Wei Li, Senior Research Associate, and Laurie Goodman, Director, Housing Finance Policy Center from the Urban Institute, the authors discovered several patterns on how mortgage debt relates to other types of debt when examining the financial habits of 118 million homeowners and 127 million renters nationwide.Homeowners tend to have higher credit scores than renters, the authors reported. About 68 percent of homeowners had a Vantage credit score above 700, compared to just 33 percent of renters; meanwhile, renters accounted for 84 percent of all consumers with scores below 550. About 45 percent of renters who have not had a mortgage in the past 16 years have credit scores below 600; that share becomes 30 percent for renters who have had a mortgage in the past 16 years but do not currently have one; and 9 percent for renters who currently have a mortgage.”Generally, consumers need a minimum credit score of 650 to qualify for a mortgage,” the authors stated. “Using this number, 60.2 million current renters—48 percent of all adult renters—could qualify for a mortgage based on their credit score alone. . . The other 63.8 million—52 percent of renters—do not have a high enough credit score to qualify for a mortgage. This number would be lower once debt-to-income and ability to fund a down payment are considered.”The authors found that 96 million American renters have never had a mortgage—and 42 percent of them have some other type of consumer debt in collections. This group tends to be younger than other groups covered in the report and the members of this group are “less likely to have credit card debt or spending but much more likely than the other five groups to have a debt in collection. This group also has the lowest credit scores, a concern given that this is the largest group and the group that might be interested in eventual homeownership,” according to Li on the Urban Institute’s blog.The report also examined a group of current renters who have had a mortgage at some point in the last 16 years, which totals about 8 percent of American adults (19 million). The authors discovered that this group is typically about the same age as those who currently have mortgages but have more debt, which may have in fact led to their being forced out of homeownership. This group “has the highest percent of public debt records (28 percent) and the second highest percent of debt in collections (37 percent),” Li said. “This group uses auto loans and credit cards less than the two groups with current mortgages, possibly because of difficulties in obtaining credit.”Approximately 12 million renters are also paying on a current mortgage, according to the authors. Current homeowners and those renters who own a mortgage tend to have credit scores higher than 700, while about half the members of both groups have an auto loan and about 80 percent of both groups have some credit card debt.“The percent of debt collections and public records of debts owed are similar and modest; and less than one in five people in each group have a student loan,” Li said. “Renters with current mortgages are, however, slightly younger than owners with current mortgages. The average age of the renters group is 45 compared with 51 for the owners.”Click here to view the Urban Institute’s full report. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Originationcenter_img Credit Score homeowners Renters Urban Institute 2016-03-18 Seth Welborn Sharelast_img read more
