Jaipur: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday termed his party’s promise of minimum guaranteed income to the poorest 20 per cent households a “surgical strike on poverty” and said nobody should be poor in 21st century India.Addressing a rally in Suratgarh town of Ganganagar district, a day after declaring his party would roll out the scheme if voted to power, Gandhi alleged that Prime Minster Narendra Modi gave money to the rich and top industrialists of the country, but the Congress would serve the poor.

This is a Congress’s surgical strike on poverty. They (the BJP) worked to eliminate the poor we will eliminate poverty,” Gandhi said. He went on to say that his party consulted former RBI governor Rahuram Rajan and “all big economists, without telling anyone, without giving any speeches”. “We were engaged in this work for six months. Take the list of all big economists of the world, we consulted them…Raghuram Rajan…one by one.” Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayOn helping the poor, he said, “We thought how it should be done. After discussion and brainstorming, we thought that there should be a minimum income line of Rs 12,000 per month. Soon after formation of the Congress government in 2019, the minimum income line in India will be Rs 12,000 per month.” The name of the proposed scheme is ‘Nyuntam Aay Yojana’ or Nyay. The word ‘Nyay’ stands for justice in Hindi. He alleged that poverty and unemployment increased under the Modi government.
Rabat – Moroccan authorities said the existence of a suspicious substance in the COP22 village was a hoax.Marrakech’s General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) was informed on Tuesday that there was a “suspicious dangerous substance in a chair.”The incident was reported by United Nations officials at the twenty-second Conference of the Parties’ (COP22) village in Bab Ighli. After investigators scanned the whole the area with radiation and other sophisticated investigative techniques, the DGSN announced that the substance was not dangerous.Earlier this month, Morocco authorized the mobilization of security forces in preparation for the COP22, which is running until November 18. 7,000 officials of the Royal Gendarmerie and 250 police motorcycles and cars have been deployed throughout Marrakech. Additionally, units of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have been arrayed at the Menara Airport and Marrakech’s tourist sites to help monitor the event and provide security and law enforcement.To ensure the highest level of security during the 12-day event, a stand-by force of rescue teams and dozens of ambulances stand at the ready throughout the city aboard three helicopters endowed with medical supplies.

The Ohio State football team suffered hits to the depth of their defensive backfield this week in the form of two potentially career-ending shoulder injuries.Redshirt junior cornerback Adam Griffin, son of former Buckeyes running back and two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin, underwent shoulder surgery Thursday morning. The injury will “in all likelihood” prevent Adam Griffin from continuing to play football, according to an OSU athletics spokesman.Redshirt senior defensive back Jamie Wood’s attempt to come back from multiple shoulder surgeries, including one that limited him to four games last season, has also ended due to a shoulder injury, according to the spokesman.Griffin played in all 12 games for the Buckeyes last season. He played primarily on special teams and recorded 13 tackles.Wood played in all 13 games of both the 2010 and 2011 seasons for the Buckeyes. He recorded 20 tackles between those two seasons and was, like Griffin, primarily a special teams player.Not including Griffin and Wood, the Buckeyes still have 20 players listed as cornerbacks, safeties or defensive backs on their roster. Sophomore cornerback Najee Murray is currently suspended from the team due to a “training camp issue,” while redshirt junior cornerback Bradley Roby could still face a suspension following a misdemeanor battery arrest in Bloomington, Ind. on July 21.
The father of a grammar school pupil stabbed in March shouted “where is the justice for my son” and collapsed in court, as two teenagers on trial were cleared of his son’s murder.A 17-year-old boy has been found not guilty of the murder of grammar school pupil Yousef Makki, 17, who was stabbed in the heart with a flick-knife in Cheshire.He was also cleared of an alternative charge of manslaughter. As the jury’s verdicts were delivered, Yousef’s father, Ghaleb, stood in Manchester Crown Court’s public gallery and swore at the defendants, as other family members wept.Grammar school student Yousef was stabbed in the heart with a flick knife on a tree-lined street in leafy Hale Barns, an upmarket village, in March.The bright A* student was found slumped against a tree on Gorse Bank Road in the suburb near Altrincham.The jury heard that the death was an “accident waiting to happen” after two the 17-year-old boys on trial indulged in “idiotic fantasies”.The young victim had won a scholarship to prestigious £12,000-a-year Manchester Grammar School, the UK’s largest independent day school for boys.The defendant, Boy A, and another boy, 17, Boy B, both from wealthy Cheshire families, were cleared of all charges following a four-week trial at Manchester Crown Court. Both were also cleared of conspiracy to commit robbery in the lead up to Yousef’s death. Despite the privileged backgrounds of the defendants, they spoke and acted like “middle-class gangsters”, the court heard.Neither of the two defendants can be named because they are under 18. Pupils consoled each other outside Manchester Grammar School in March whilst paying tribute to Yousef MakkiCredit:Mercury Press & Media In his closing speech to the jury, Alastair Webster QC, defending Boy A, said the “silliness” shown in the social media videos shared by the boys showed the stabbing was an “accident waiting to happen”.He added: “Juvenile gangsters playing around with knives. What’s going on with a whole generation of children with the advantage of good families and good education?”They appear to have led double lives, living out idiotic fantasies. Talking in stupid jive talk. Idiotic, juvenile, pathetic, but not sinister – stupid.”Police were first alerted around 6.40pm on Saturday March 2 to reports a teenager had been stabbed.Officers attended the scene and Yousef was taken to hospital, where he died a short time later.Boy A denied murder on March 2, claiming he acted in self-defence.He admitted perverting the course of justice by lying to police and possession of a flick knife.Boy B, was cleared of perverting the course of justice by allegedly lying to police about what he had seen but also admitted possession of a flick knife.

Many of the faults have been caused by falling trees and branches and these need to be cut and removed before the fault can be repaired and supply restored. In addition, some new faults overnight has increased the work for the crews.Crews have travelled from areas less affected to assist in the South and South West where the majority of the faults occurred.During the period 18 – 27 December, seven days were classified as ‘storm’ days and ESB said technicians have now been “working long days in extreme conditions to restore supply to customers”.The impact on customers of this recent storm was 10 times the average of customer minutes lost during a storm.Further updates are expected later today.First published 8:36amRead: About 5,000 homes without power supply tonight>Read: Travel disruption as high winds continue> Updated 12:43pmESB MAINTENANCE CREWS are still working to restore the electricity supply of some 5,000 customers after a storm left tens of thousands without power yesterday.Crews scrambled to work from first light yesterday, with some 70,000 people without power yesterday morning after what the company described as “the worst storm in 15 years”.Workers managed to repair faults and restore power to 65,000 customers but ESB said today that in areas where storms have caused extensive damage to the networks, “fixing the smaller, more localised faults can be frustratingly slow” for both customers and technicians.Today will be a difficult and long day, with an average of eight customers per fault, progress will be frustratingly slow for the effort expended.

Philips has decided to get out of the consumer electronics market, no doubt causing consumers everywhere to either feel nostalgic about the end of a legend, or to think, “Oh yeah, I totally forgot about that company.”It seem Philips has been unable to successfully compete against companies like Samsung and Sony in such a frenetic and quickly evolving industry, and have instead decided to throw in the towel.Philips used to be a titan of consumer electronics, dating back to the 1930s when it was the top seller of radios. It then later invented audio cassette and VCR, and was later responsible for creating the CD medium. It would go on to be a successful supplier of DVD and Blu-ray players. There’s just one problem — almost all of those product categories rely on the necessity of physical medium. Philips was unable to reorganize its company to face the digital revolution.Philips also used to be a major player in the TV business, but it exited that market last year, leaving its consumer electronics department almost entirely rooted in increasingly obsolete technology. It should therefore come as no surprise that the company has had a poor showing in recent quarterly reports, The last of which included a loss of 358 million euros ($482 million).In order to stay afloat, the company has decided that selling its consumer electronics division was necessary. The Philips brand name license and all of its CE assets will go to Japan-based Funai Electric Co. for a total of 150 million euros ($201 million).Although Philips has a lot to be concerned about, it has shown growth in other divisions. The company’s healthcare and lighting segments saw increased sales over the previous year. And thus, those are the divisions that will be its focus moving forward. Although medical equipment is also a competitive industry, it mostly centers around the companies that have been in the business for decades; there is less of a chance some company like Apple could step in and cause a paradigm shift. The same is true for home and commercial lighting.By 2014, Philips CEO Frans van Houten hopes to have reached more than one billion euros in cost-cutting and savings. The sale of its consumer electronics business is a big step toward that goal.via Wall Street Journal
The Humble Bundle is back, but instead of the main Humble line, we have the fifth Android pack. Unlike the main line of Humble Bundles, the Android family tree sports a group of games that not only run on OS X, Windows, and Linux, but Android as well. Due to the requirement that the games are able to run on Android, the pack may not contain games that you’re highly familiar with — or even heard of — but it still offers some great gaming at a low price.This time around, the total value of the items in the pack would reach $110 if bought individually, and as is tradition, the pack includes unlockables. You can pay what you want for the pack, but if you pay more than a buck, you’ll be given Steam keys along with the DRM-free direct downloads. If you pay over whatever the current average bundle price is, you’ll unlock Dungeon Defenders and Super Hexagon, which are likely the two most recognized games included in the pack. Whatever price you pay, you’ll receive Beat Hazard Ultra, Dynamite Jack, Solar 2, and NightSky HD. If you pay above that average bundle price, you’ll receive a soundtrack for each game, apart from Dynamite Jack.If you’re new to the bundle, not only can you pay whatever you want, but you can also dictate where the money goes. You can choose between the game developers, charity, the people that make the Humble Bundle possible, or any combination of those three. You can also gift the bundle to friends, but don’t let them know how much you paid.Grab a bundle here.
Japon : l’activité de la centrale de Hamaoka désormais suspendueSuite à une directive du premier ministre japonais, l’opérateur de la centrale de Hamaoka dans le centre de l’archipel s’est vu contraint samedi de mettre un terme à l’activité de tous les réacteurs de l’installation. Les bâtiments construits dans une région à forte activité sismique laissaient craindre la possibilité d’un nouvel accident semblable à celui de Fukushima. La centrale de Hamaoka est désormais hors-service. La fermeture du réacteur 5 samedi 14 mai à 4h GMT marque la fin de son activité. Toutefois, si les unités 1 et 2 ont été définitivement stoppées en 2009, l’arrêt des unités 3, 4 et 5 n’est quand à lui que provisoire. La suspension a été estimée à hauteur de deux ans, temps au cours duquel l’opérateur de la centrale, Chubu Electric Power, devra construire une digue et améliorer les dispositifs de protection contre un éventuel tsunami.À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéL’initiative a été prise par le premier ministre japonais, Naoto Kan qui, soucieux de préserver la sécurité des populations alentours a demandé à l’opérateur de la centrale de Hamaoka de suspendre définitivement l’activité de l’installation. Selon les estimations établies par les experts, les risques de manifestation d’un séisme de magnitude 8 s’élèvent à 87% pour le centre du Japon durant les 30 prochaines années. Une menace extrêmement élevée d’autant plus que la centrale de Hamaoka a été construite pour résister à des secousses de magnitude 6,5. Selon Naoto Kan, un nouvel accident nucléaire, qui plus est dans cette région, pourrait avoir un “énorme impact sur la société japonaise dans son ensemble”.Une suspension difficile à assumerL’arrêt total d’activité de la centrale de Hamaoka ne devrait pouvoir se faire sans difficultés. En effet, l’installation représente à elle seule 15% de la capacité totale de production d’énergie de l’opérateur qui alimente le centre du Japon. Pour faire face à cette baisse considérable des ressources, Chubu Electric Power prévoit d’augmenter l’activité de ses centrales thermiques, à travers des importations supplémentaires d’hydrocarbure. Le gouvernement a également annoncé son aide dans les opérations visant à compenser l’arrêt des réacteurs. La suspension temporaire de la centrale de Hamaoka marque le début d’un profond changement dans la politique énergétique japonaise. Le premier ministre a en effet exprimé ses souhaits pour l’avenir d’un usage plus important des énergies renouvelables dans la production d’électricité, et d’un remaniement des logiques de consommations actuelles. Actuellement, le Japon représente la troisième puissance économique mondiale et produit entre 25% et 30% de son électricité via 54 réacteurs nucléaires.Le 16 mai 2011 à 11:33 • Emmanuel Perrin
Le TGI pourrait condamner Google et Prisma PresseLe tribunal de grande instance (TGI) de Paris a condamné le géant américain de l’Internet Google suite un lien AdWords renvoyant vers un article de Gala.fr, révèle PC Inpact. L’acteur Olivier Martinez avait porté plainte en juin 2008 contre Prisma Presse (gala.fr) et Google. Selon lui une photographie publiée sur Gala.fr portait atteinte à sa vie privée et il reprochait en même temps à Google d’avoir associé à l’article un lien Adwords. Face à cela, la Cour de justice de l’Union européenne (CJUE) avait précisé que les liens publicitaires devaient renvoyer à un contenu neutre, “impliquant que ledit prestataire n’a pas la connaissance ou de contrôle des informations transmises ou stockées.” Or, si l’un de ces critères manque, l’intermédiaire est responsable du contenu qui transite entre ses mains.

What first comes to mind when you think about Gears of War? Is it guns with chainsaws on them? Is it Marcus Fenix’s doo rag? Is it trailers with sad Mad World covers? Or is it general nostalgia for one of Microsoft’s most iconic Xbox 360-era franchises? Cole Train baby?Well the right answer should be Horde Mode. Arguably Gears’ greatest contribution to online shooter co-op multiplayer was the novel idea that you and your friends could team up to fight increasingly tough waves of monsters. Pretty much every other game ripped off this survival concept. So whenever a new Gears of War game comes out, the team has to prove once again that they aren’t only the original but also the best when it comes to Horde Mode.So check out this first trailer for Horde Mode in Gears 5.Gears 5 isn’t trying to fix what isn’t broken. It’s not like they added Funko Pops are anything. Horde Mode still has you coordinating with teammates to build defenses and take down as many foes as you can while achieving key objectives. The game just gives you more options for strategic slaughter. Perhaps inspired by hero-based multiplayer games like Apex Legends and Overwatch, each character now has a unique Ultimate ability to use on the battlefield. Hijack enemies, call down airstrikes, cloak yourself, and see through walls.In Gears 5 Horde Mode you’ll primarily play as characters from the campaign, including new lead Kait Diaz. But this isn’t canon, so might as well branch out a little bit too. You can also play as a couple of doomed Spartans from Halo: Reach to almost have the Marcus Fenix/Master Chief crossover team-up of your 2008 dreams. There’s even a Terminator: Dark Fate character pack coming featuring the killer robot and the killer Linda Hamilton.Gears 5 launches September 10 for PC and Xbox One. For more on Xbox, learn about the next Xbox indie game coming to Nintendo Switch and here’s everything we know about the upcoming Project Scarlett.

We are more mature, stronger than Doha, we can’t be afraid of Juve,” he commented.“Higuain? You will have to ask those in charge of the transfer market.

The proposed acquisition, valued at US$3.025bn will enable the combined company to significantly accelerate its growth strategy, improve service delivery to customers in the region, offer customers a comprehensive portfolio of high-quality products and services, and strengthen their position against larger competitors. The increased scale and capabilities of the combined company will provide the technical platform and financial capacity to help enable CWC to drive greater innovation and expand our geographic footprint.The combination of the two companies is consistent with global industry trends, where convergence of fixed and mobile networks, increasing content consumption growth, and continuing development of online applications are driving requirements for high bandwidth, fixed line networks and TV capabilities. Operators in Europe and North America, as well as regional competitors, are acquiring and constructing networks that are capable of supporting ever-growing data needs along with new video capabilities. The combination of the two businesses supports CWC’s new strategy and its four primary areas of focus: Drive Mobile Leadership; Accelerate Fixed-Mobile Convergence; Reinforce TV Offer; and Grow Business to Business and Business to Government sectors.

Columbus offers complementary TV, Broadband and B2B capabilities in complementary markets. Together, we will create the best-in-class quad-play offering in the region, delivered on a superior mobile, fibre and subsea network. This is a significant opportunity to better serve our customers and improve the ICT infrastructure of the communities in which we operate, whilst accelerating our strategy and delivering materially enhanced returns and synergy benefits.”Similarly, Columbus’ chairman and CEO, Brendan Paddick indicated that, “Together we will form a truly world-class company focused on our customers in the Caribbean, Central America and the Andean regions. The proposed acquisition makes both companies stronger, faster and smarter in competing with their larger competitors. The proposed transaction reinforces our commitment to transform connectivity in the region, to increase the attractiveness of the region to investors, to support the growth of the communities we serve by making them more globally accessible and to ensure that our customers always have access to the best products and services available.”For both companies, the proposed acquisition also enables greater focus on the Caribbean, Andean and Latin American markets as a region that offers attractive growth. The proposed acquisition will provide new opportunities and focus in Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Peru.“Our goal is to provide customer-focused solutions and the highest level of service across the region. This agreement will accelerate our efforts through a strengthened set of assets and capabilities,” Bentley affirmed.The recent acquisition of both Groupo Sonitel in Panama, combined with Columbus’ Lazus in acquisition in Colombia will accelerate CWC’s progress against the new streamlined strategy.About Cable & Wireless Communications Cable & Wireless Communications Plc (CWC) is a full-service communications provider operating in 16 countries throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.

Prior research has shown that one type, called polykrikos kofoidii, has an organelle that functions as a dart with a tow line that it shoots at prey to capture and retrieve it. In this new effort, the researchers found a way to capture the tiny creature while using its weapon. They also took apart the tiny harpoon to get a close-up look at it under a microscope. They found a three-ring structure that appeared to serve as a nozzle for ejecting the harpoon; the researchers wanted to learn more about how it works and whether it suggests that such creatures might be distant relatives of cnidarians which include such creatures as jellyfish and corals.In looking at the organelle, the researchers found that it actually had three parts: a dart, which is the part fired at prey; a nematocyst, which is a larger dart and has a tube attached to it that functions like a hypodermic needle, injecting an unknown substance into the prey. The other part was a tow line that the polykrikos kofoidii used to retrieve prey once harpooned. Play P. kofoidii hunting L. polyedra. Credit: Gavelis et al. Sci.

They found little relationship between them and cnidarians, which suggests the similarity in design between harpoons is purely coincidental.The researchers also found that another dinoflagellate, neatodinium, had a weapon the team described as rather like a Gatling gun—it shoots multiple rounds of nematocysts.

These ballistic organelles have been hypothesized to be homologous to similarly complex structures in animals (cnidarians); but we show, using structural, functional, and phylogenomic data, that nematocysts evolved independently in both lineages. We also recorded the first high-resolution videos of nematocyst discharge in dinoflagellates. Unexpectedly, our data suggest that different types of dinoflagellate nematocysts use two fundamentally different types of ballistic mechanisms: one type relies on a single pressurized capsule for propulsion, whereas the other type launches 11 to 15 projectiles from an arrangement similar to a Gatling gun. Despite their radical structural differences, these nematocysts share a single origin within dinoflagellates and both potentially use a contraction-based mechanism to generate ballistic force. The diversity of traits in dinoflagellate nematocysts demonstrates a stepwise route by which simple secretory structures diversified to yield elaborate subcellular weaponry.
