Now, Kundu khap comes out in support of Haryana stalking victim

first_imgAmid protests by rival political parties across Haryana in the case of alleged stalking of a woman by State BJP president Subhash Barala’s son Vikas and his friend Ashish on a road in Chandigarh, a khap (community organisation representing a clan or a group of related clans) has come out in support of the woman seeking strict action against the accused. The Kundu khap leaders have threatened to intensify an agitation if no concrete action is taken on the issue by August 16.A large number of residents of Titoli village, along with those of the neighbouring Sunderpur and Sisroli villages, blocked the Jind-Rohtak highway on Tuesday afternoon, expressing solidarity with the woman and seeking strict legal action.Also Read ‘Stalking’ case: Chandigarh police summon Vikas Barala, friend Ashish Virender Kundu, a protester, said “The family of the victim belongs to the Kundu clan and her ancestors belong to Titoli village. So she is our daughter, we want justice for her. It seems the government is trying to cover up because the accused belongs to an influential family.”Another protester, Rajesh, said that it was not just the members of the Kundu clan, but members of all 36 communities had come out in support of the victim and were committed to continue their fight till the justice was done to her. “It is not about a girl belonging to a particular community or a clan, it concerns all girls and women. So the members of all the communities came out in her support. We too have girls who go to schools and colleges. It can happen to them as well. If the accused go scot-free, it will set a wrong precedent,” he said.Senior officials reached the spot and persuaded the villagers to lift the blockade.Superintendent of Police, Rohtak, Pankaj Nain, said the blockade lasted for around 30 minutes and a case was registered against the protesters under the relevant Sections of the IPC.Vikas and Ashish allegedly stalked the woman, a disc jockey, when she was returning home in the early hours of August 5 in their sport utility vehicle and blocked her way twice. The duo was later arrested and let off on bail.last_img read more

Feel the power with TI’s power supply design seminars

Continue Reading Previous On readingNext Free: Analog Engineer’s Pocket Reference Guide I don’t know about you, but power supply units (PSUs) are something I tend to take for granted… right up to the point where I find myself needing a specific PSU capability for a particular project, at which point I start running around in ever-decreasing circles shouting “Don’t Panic! Don’t Panic!” Once I’ve quieted down a little, I amble over to see my chum Ivan in the next bay, because he’s forgotten more about PSUs than I will ever know. In the case of my projects, I can invariably use an off-the-shelf PSU; the only trick is tracking down the unit that best satisfies my size, cost, performance requirements.I don’t know what I’d do if I had to design a PSU from the ground up. Actually, that’s not quite true — I do know — I would amble over to see my chum Ivan in the next bay because… (“In order to understand recursion, you must first understand recursion,” as the old joke goes).But what do you do if you don’t have an Ivan to hand? Well, one solution would be to attend one of Texas Instruments’ forthcoming power supply design seminars, which are a bargain at only $79.(Source: Texas Instruments) Since their introduction in 1977, TI’s power supply design seminars have featured a mix of technical and practical presentations that combine basic design principles and advanced new power supply concepts with real-world application examples.(Source: Texas Instruments) When you come to think about it, there are many implications to selecting the correct/incorrect power supply for your specific application, including safety (property damage, injury and/or death, lawsuits…), cost/profit margin (bill-of-materials, labor, testing, potential product recalls…), and performance (meeting efficiency requirements, RF emissions and other standards…).At the end of the day, “stuff” simply doesn’t work unless it’s equipped with the appropriate power supply, so if you are in any way involved in power supply design or selection and you want to make sure you are on top of everything, you may want to consider attending one of these seminars.center_img Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: EDA last_img read more

Commons to provide translation for MPs speaking Indigenous languages

first_imgOTTAWA — When Liberal MP Robert-Falcon Ouellette gave a speech last year entirely in Cree, hardly any of his fellow parliamentarians in the House of Commons understood a word he said.That’s because Commons rules recognized only French and English as languages deserving of simultaneous translation.But no more.Members of Parliament from all parties have accepted a report that recommends interpretation services be made available on request for any MP who wishes to use one of more than 60 Indigenous languages in the Commons or in a Commons committee.Reasonable notice must be given so that the House administration has time to secure, if possible, the required translation service.Ouellette calls it “the most significant event for languages” in Canada since 1952, when French translation services were introduced, and says it signals to Indigenous people that their languages “are just as important as English and French.”“It is a momentous occasion to demonstrate to Indigenous Canadians that this chamber is fully representative of each and every one of us in this country, that we are not half citizens, that we are full citizens of this nation,” he said Thursday outside the Commons as MPs in the chamber were debating the matter.Ouellette expressed hope that the move will help save “the original languages of Canada,” which are in danger dying out.“With this now we have a fighting chance to ensure that our children will be able to speak those languages and speak those languages well and into the future.”Commons Speaker Geoff Regan referred the issue to the procedure and House affairs committee after Ouellette raised a point of privilege about the lack of translation services for his speech last year. The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Ready to face assembly polls in Tamil Nadu Rajinikanth

first_imgChennai:Tamil ‘superstar’ Rajinikanth Friday said his formal political entry will coincide with the next assembly polls in Tamil Nadu. The remarks virtually reiterate his earlier announcement that he will float a party by the next assembly polls in Tamil Nadu, due in 2021, and contest from all the 234 seats. “Whenever the assembly elections are held,” was the actor’s brief response to a question as to when his political entry was expected. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Asked if he would take a decision based on the outcome of bypolls to 18 assembly segments held on Thursday along with 38 Lok Sabha seats, Rajinikanth said he will respond after the results are out. To a question if the results may lead to assembly polls in the state and whether he would then face them, the actor shot back, “Ready to face, whenever they are held.” The outcome of the bypolls to a total of 22 assembly segments in Tamil Nadu could decide the continuance of the AIADMK government in the state. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K The bypolls to four other seats will be held on May 19. In the 234-member House, the K Palaniswami government has 113 MLAs, excluding the Speaker. It needs a simple majority of 117 to continue. All eyes are on the outcome of the bypolls, as a loss for the AIADMK could well lead to the next assembly polls. In December 2017, the superstar had announced that he would take the political plunge and contest the next assembly polls in the state whose politics is dominated by Dravidian majors-the DMK and AIADMK. Since he made his announcement on December 31, 2017, speculations had often been rife about the launch of his political party, although ‘Rajini Makkal Mandram’, a forum seen as a forerunner to his political ambitions, is in vogue. Even in the past, the actor had dropped hints of taking the political plunge, but it was only in 2017 that he made a definitive statement on launching his own political party. To a question on whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi will get a second term, he said it will be known on May 23, the counting day.last_img read more

Kitimats cleaner more productive smelter pours first aluminum

Kitimat’s cleaner, more productive smelter pours first aluminum KITIMAT, B.C. – A ceremonial first pour of molten metal at Rio Tinto Alcan’s aluminum plant Tuesday marked the completion of a multibillion-dollar modernization project in the northern British Columbia community of Kitimat.Plant manager Gaby Poirier said the upgraded smelter will not reach full production until next year, but the pouring celebration starts shipments of aluminum for export from Kitimat’s port.Poirier said the US$4.8-billion project created about 3,600 construction jobs at its peak and the upgrade cuts emissions in half. Aluminum production is expected to increase by 48 per cent to 420,000 tonnes a year.“We are at the start of a new era for the smelter where we will become a supplier of high-quality, low-carbon footprint aluminum to the Pacific Rim,” he said. “For us, what’s the most important is with the new smelter we’re securing jobs for the future here in northern B.C. We’re aiming for nothing less than another 60 years.”The upgraded smelter will employ 1,000 people, at least 1,000 fewer people than employed at the old smelter during the 1970s.Four generations of Kitimat families have worked at the smelter since 1954, Poirier said. The community of about 10,000 residents was carved out of the wilderness to make room for a new industry and what was North America’s first planned city.The smelter’s modernization cuts overall emissions, including hydrocarbons, fluorides and greenhouse gases, by an overall average of 50 per cent, but sulphur-dioxide emissions will increase by 56 per cent, Rio Tinto states on its company website.The Ministry of Environment granted the company a permit to increase sulphur-dioxide emissions as part of the upgrade, but some Kitimat residents have appealed the permit.Environmental groups and residents have said the increase in sulphur-dioxide emissions can cause potential health and environmental harms.Court documents filed by Unifor Local 2301 last March on behalf of Kitimat smelter workers claim the B.C. government permitted Rio Tinto Alcan to undertake its smelter modernization without requiring the company to reduce harmful sulphur-dioxide emissions.The petition seeks to set aside the government’s approval under the Environmental Management Act on the grounds of failure to consider expert advice on pollution-reduction measures, including installing scrubbers to prevent adverse effects on human health.Last July, B.C.’s Environment Ministry released an independent, government-funded report that concluded with proper management, Kitimat’s air, water, land and residents can handle prospective oil, gas and aluminum industry expansions in the area.Kitimat is in the midst of an industrial boom with the development of at least three proposed liquefied natural gas export plants and the completion of the Rio Tinto upgrade. The community was in the economic doldrums less than a decade ago.— By Dirk Meissner in Victoria. by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 7, 2015 2:33 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 7, 2015 at 7:12 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Ben Hueso, D-San Diego, Friday will announce a bill that would expand worker’s compensation availability to law enforcement officers who receive certain injuries.Current state law generally leaves law enforcement agencies to classify certain injuries and illnesses as workplace hazards or not. Because of this, law enforcement with an agency that sidesteps such classifications are forced to use their personal leave time and benefits to recover.According to Hueso, this harms law enforcement agencies by putting their officers in danger of losing healthcare or employment when their leave time runs out.Prospective officers may also shy away from agencies that don’t classify certain injuries as eligible for worker’s compensation, opting instead for an employer with more favorable policies for work-related injuries.Hueso’s bill would expand worker’s compensation benefits to all of the state’s law enforcement officers. Representatives from the Peace Officers Research Association of California are expected to join Hueso at the announcement. The group will unveil the bill at 11 a.m. Friday at San Diego City College.
