BJP leader and Rajasthan Labour Minister Jaswant Singh Yadav has stirred a controversy over his criticism of Congress president Rahul Gandhi on the Rafale deal. Mr. Yadav said the Congress chief was “disturbed” because it was India and not Pakistan which had acquired the fighter jets.Addressing a public meeting in Alwar, Mr. Yadav said Rafale planes were acquired by India after a great difficulty. “Pakistan did not acquire it. Rahul Gandhi is disturbed that [Prime Minister] Modiji and not Pakistan received it,” he said. A video footage of the event showed the audience clapping and raising slogans in support of the BJP.Mr. Yadav said: “He [Mr. Gandhi] tells the people of India that Hindus are terrorists. What does it mean? If you want to please Pakistan, why are you insulting us?” He also questioned Mr. Gandhi’s ability to lead the country and asked, “What will such a man do by becoming the Prime Minister.”
Superstitions are stupid! There is no logic to them whatsoever. And while having faith is a good thing, blind faith is something else altogether. Related Items

Former captain Sunil Gavaskar reckons India will lift the World Cup trophy once again on July 14 if vice-captain Rohit Sharma continues to fire with the bat in the next two games for his team.Rohit has been in red-hot form in the World Cup this year with 647 runs in 8 matches at an average of 92.42 with five hundreds and couple of fifties. Last week he became the only batsman in World Cup history to hit five centuries in a single edition after his match-winning 103 against Sri Lanka in India’s final league game.Rohit Sharma now has 27 ODI hundreds. He also jointly holds the record for most World Cup centuries (6) with Sachin Tendulkar.Ever since Shikhar Dhawan’s injury after the Australia game, Rohit has shouldered the responsibility at the top of the order and has provided superb starts for the team while opening the batting which is why Sunil Gavaskar feels that the World Cup trophy will return to India if the Mumbai batsman continues his form with the bat.”Rohit Sharma is in sublime form. He is batting absolutely unbelievably. He has been the rock for India. He has given the kind of starts that has made life easier for the likes of Virat Kohli coming at No. 3 and the rest.”Even down the order when No. 4, 5 and 6 have not really contributed big runs, the fact that Rohit Sharma has held the innings together has helped ease the burden. And if he continues the same form in the next two games then you can be guaranteed that India will be the world champions once again on Sunday (July 14),” Sunil Gavaskar told India Today.advertisementIndia captain Virat Kohli also stated on Monday that Rohit’s form has made life much easier for him in the batting lineup which is why he is looking to reinvent himself as the team’s middle-overs orchestrator.”It’s been a different kind of role I have played in this World Cup. It’s great that Rohit has been scoring so consistently, which means that coming in the latter half of the innings, you have to play a different role, which is controlling the middle overs and letting guys like Hardik (Pandya), Kedar (Jadhav), MS (Dhoni) and Rishabh (Pant) express themselves..@ImRo45 is the best ODI batsman at the moment – @imVkohli #TeamIndia #CWC19 #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/VhoZSzSrjLBCCI (@BCCI) July 8, 2019″I’ve understood that roles can vary a lot in one day cricket depending on the time you step in to bat and I’ve been very happy holding one end and letting other guys express themselves striking at 150-160 and even 200,” Kohli told reporters at Old Trafford on the eve of the semi-final.Also Read | World Cup 2019: India already have one foot in the final, feels Michael ClarkeAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Hope Rohit Sharma scores 2 more hundreds, says Virat KohliAlso Read | Rohit Sharma, Mitchell Starc, Joe Root and Alex Carey on the verge of all-time World Cup recordsAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Rohit Sharma vs David Warner in race for top run-scorer
Lithuania 0 Scotland 3: Robertson stunner helps earn crucial Group F win Matt Dorman Last updated 2 years ago 04:50 9/2/17 Getty Images Scotland produced an accomplished away win over Lithuania to keep the pressure on second-placed Slovakia in Group F. Stuart Armstrong, Andrew Robertson and James McArthur were all on target as Scotland earned a crucial 3-0 World Cup qualifying Group F win at Lithuania.Having seen victory snatched away by a late Harry Kane equaliser in their last qualifier against England, Scotland travelled to Vilnius knowing anything other than a victory could signal the end of their chances of punching a ticket to Russia.And Gordon Strachan, whose position as Scotland manager has been under pressure through an at times stuttering campaign, saw his side cruise to victory.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Armstrong headed in a deserved opener and Liverpool new boy Robertson joined him on two international goals, exquisitely curling the visitors to a comfortable advantage by half-time.Crystal Palace midfielder McArthur added late polish as Scotland, whose last World Cup appearance was at France 98, kept the pressure on second-placed Slovakia.Slovakia’s 1-0 win over Slovenia means they are four points above Scotland with three matches remaining, but Strachan’s men still have crucial matches with Slovakia and Slovenia to come in the pool.FULL TIME | Lithuania 0 – 3 Scotland in Group F. #LTUSCO pic.twitter.com/NhMSvUblDr— Scotland (@ScottishFA) September 1, 2017Leigh Griffiths was the star of Scotland’s 2-2 draw with England and the Celtic man fired the first warning in the sixth minute, curling a well-struck effort around Ernestas Setkus’ post.Club-mate Armstrong directed the next attempt wide of the left post and the visitors were fortunate not to fall behind moments later as former Hearts forward Arvydas Novikovas cut inside Christophe Berra, only to drag his shot the wrong side of the upright.The early end-to-end action continued with Matt Phillips firing over, while Armstrong – playing behind Griffiths – again tried his luck from range.Craig Gordon was kept busy at the other end, the 34-year-old flying to his left to claw Novikovas’ free-kick away from harm.Scotland remained on top, though, and were rewarded for an attack-minded start when Armstrong ghosted to the far post and headed in Griffiths’ corner for a 25th-minute lead.The visitors doubled the lead five minutes later as Liverpool left-back Robertson received James Forrest’s pass, steadied, and deftly picked out the top corner with a delightful curler.Novikovas found time to end a busy first-half with a harmless shot over the bar as Strachan’s side carried their two-goal advantage into the break.Griffiths should have put the result beyond doubt shortly after the restart as Robertson floated an inviting cross to the far post, but the 27-year-old got his angles wrong in meeting the volley.The striker should have been made to pay for passing up that chance when space opened up for Vykintas Slivka, the Hibernian midfielder only managing to poke a tame attempt past the left upright.Instead, Scotland were gifted a third with 18 minutes remaining as Griffiths was afforded time to collect a throw inside the area and tee up the fast-arriving McArthur for a simple close-range finish.Scotland will expect to make it four matches unbeaten in qualifying when they host bottom-placed Malta on Monday, with remaining matches against Slovakia and Slovenia likely to determine their fate. Key Opta stats:- Scotland are now unbeaten in their last three competitive games (W2 D1), keeping a clean sheet in two of them (v Slovenia and Lithuania). – After the previous four games between these two had produced just two goals, Scotland scored as many in the first half in their eventual 3-0 win. – Gordon Strachan’s side have netted more than once in consecutive international games for the first time since October 2015 (a run of three). – Leigh Griffiths has been directly involved in four of Scotland’s last five goals in 2018 World Cup qualifying (two goals and two assists). – In fact, no Scotland player has had a hand in more goals than Griffiths in the current World Cup qualifying campaign (4). read more

YouTubeFox Sports’ national college football writer Bruce Feldman made an appearance on The Herd with Colin Cowherd today. While on the air, Cowherd put Feldman on the spot and asked for his College Football Playoff foursome, as of right now.Feldman declared he would vote for Clemson, LSU, Baylor and Iowa, based off resume. He chose the Hawkeyes over fellow unbeatens Ohio State and Michigan State and went on to highlight Iowa’s win over Northwestern, which beat Stanford, another playoff hopeful. Feldman did qualify his position as picking who he felt was “most deserving” as opposed to “the best teams.” He said if the latter were his criteria, Iowa would be third in the Big Ten pecking order behind the Buckeyes and Spartans. Somehow, we still don’t think that will make OSU or MSU fans feel any better about his opinion. Here’s the video of Feldman and Cowherd breaking down the CFP. Come for the out-of-the-box projections from Feldman, stay for him accidentally referring to Cowherd as “Clay” when he clearly mixed him up with Clay Travis.

29 October 2007A new initiative backed by the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) aims to help countries know how many people are born and die each year and the main causes of their deaths – key information for well-functioning health systems. The programme was launched today by the Health Metrics Network, a global, WHO-hosted partnership established to address the lack of reliable health information in developing countries. The lack of civil registration systems – by which governments keep track of births, deaths and marital status of their citizens – means that every year, almost 40 per cent – or 48 million – of 128 million births worldwide go unregistered. The situation is even worse for death registration: globally, two-thirds – or 38 million – of 57 million deaths a year are not registered. In addition, WHO receives reliable cause-of-death statistics from only 31 of its 193 Member States. According to WHO, governments cannot design effective public health policies or measure their impact when deaths go uncounted and the causes of death are not documented. Information on births and deaths by age, sex and cause is the “cornerstone of public health planning,” the agency said. “No single UN agency is responsible for ensuring that births and deaths are registered, so it has fallen between the cracks. That is why we have failed to establish, support, and sustain civil registration systems over the past 30 years in the developing world,” WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan said today at the Global Forum for Health Research in Beijing. “Without the statistics that these systems produce, we can only have a partial view of the impact of $120 billion spent annually in official development aid.” The drive to encourage countries to improve civil registration is launched today with a series of papers published in the medical journal The Lancet, entitled “Who counts?” The papers show that most developing countries have rudimentary or non-existent civil registration systems. They also underscore the challenges of establishing civil registration, including new legislation and governance structures. The Health Metrics Network has already started working with Cambodia, Sierra Leone and Syria to improve their civil registration systems, and three other countries are expected to be identified for assistance by the end of the year.
The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce is extending its brand across the U.S. by renaming dozens of recently-purchased locations south of the border as CIBC Bank USA.The Canadian lender closed its acquisition of Chicago-based PrivateBancorp in June.Today, the bank announced it is replacing the U.S. company’s brand called The PrivateBank with the CIBC name on 36 branches and commercial banking offices.A soccer field and a theatre in Chicago have also been renamed as the CIBC Fire Pitch and the CIBC Theatre.CIBC bought the U.S. bank for approximately US$5 billion in a bid to secure its foothold in the country.The Canadian bank has said it hopes to one day generate a quarter of its earnings in the U.S.
“The Secretary-General welcomes the decision of the World Health Assembly to adopt the International Health Regulations 2005, a measure that is among the recommendations in the Secretary-General’s recent report, ‘In Larger Freedom,'” a UN spokesman said.”This decision marks a watershed for global public health and will help the World Health Organization (WHO) to further advance its mandate – the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health – amid the challenges of the new millennium.”The International Health Regulations agreed on in 1969 were designed to monitor and control six serious infectious diseases – cholera, plague, yellow fever, smallpox, relapsing fever and typhus. The new regulations, negotiated over several years, also include such diseases as polio and the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and they bind Governments to notify WHO of their occurrence, the agency said.The regulations, scheduled to come into effect in two years for the 192 members of the World Health Assembly, also include a matrix for countries to decide whether any other incidence constitutes a public health event of international concern. Governments must decide if an outbreak is serious, unusual, or unexpected, measure the risk of international spread and determine whether to impose international travel or trade restrictions.Countries also have to assess their capacities to identify, verify and control public health events and upgrade those capacities within a fixed timeframe.”The new regulations bring disease control into the twenty-first century,” said Dr. Anarfi Asamoa-Baah, WHO Assistant Director-General in charge of communicable diseases. “With this framework, we can now support the work of countries in controlling outbreaks more effectively. The regulations provide WHO with new, clearly defined roles and responsibilities as we help countries to respond to disease outbreaks.”The capacities of WHO offices around the world will be strengthened and they, together with the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN), a technical collaboration network of governments and medical and humanitarian non-governmental organizations (NGO), will continue to provide operational support to countries in identifying and responding to disease outbreaks.
Tower natural gas project in northeastern British Columbia gets green light CALGARY – Construction of the $715-million Tower natural gas procession complex in northeastern British Columbia has received the green light from the Cutbank Ridge partnership formed by Encana (TSX:ECA) and Mitsubishi.Veresen (TSX:VSN) — a Calgary-based company that agreed last year to undertake up to $5 billion of expansion projects for Encana and Cutbank Ridge — says the Tower complex south of Fort St. John, B.C., will be able to process 200 million cubic feet per day of natural gas.The Tower complex includes a processing plant as well as storage and other facilities that are expected to be in service in late 2017.The decision to build the Tower complex follows a previously announced plan to build the $860-million Sunrise natural gas plant near Dawson Creek, B.C., for Cutbank Ridge.Sunrise is expected to process 400 million cubic feet per day of natural gas when it becomes operational in 2017.Both processing plants would handle natural gas from the Montney Formation in northeastern British Columbia. by The Canadian Press Posted Dec 7, 2015 6:47 am MDT Last Updated Dec 7, 2015 at 7:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email

I had to forgo a regular social life and regular eating habits. Your greatest challenge Having to deal with people constantly trying to bring you down and the negative social perception of my sport. It would often be easier to give up, but it’s never an option!Your aspirations/goals for the future My first goal would be to establish my professional career and start developing a professional development/training business in my spare time. I’d also like to win an Australian title in the next two to three years.Best moment of your life Graduating from university and my two trips to Greece over the last four years.One word that describes you the best Stubborn.Persons you most admire and why My parents who taught me values. They all made many sacrifices over time and I hope that I can repay them for these sacrifices.Best thing about being Greek-Australian Being brought up among the two cultures; the Australian lifestyle with Greek values. I also believe in being able to speak both languages.If I could say anything to the Greek community… Stick to your goals no matter what they are and don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done; you can do anything you put your mind to.Most embarrassing or funny Greek (family) momentMy family making all of my favourite foods and force-feeding me to try and fatten me up after competitions. Apparently I was too skinny!Favourite place to go or hang out atProbably Melissa in Templestowe or Bodyworld Gym in Camberwell.Favourite Greek food All of it, but if I had to pick one it would definitely be pastissio for regular food and bougatsas for dessert.I can’t live without… Food, my phone, car, computer and gym.If I was Kevin Rudd for a day I would… Resign and put the Liberals back in power (controversial I know).
Duqu Framework: la partie mystérieuse du code écrite en… langage CLes experts de Kaspersky viennent enfin de déchiffrer la partie du code du cheval de troie Duqu, qui restait mystérieuse. Elle a été écrite en langage C ! Le FrameworkDuqu a de moins de moins de secrets pour les analystes. Cela faisait plusieurs mois que le Kaspersky Labs planchait sur la question du fameux et mystérieux code de Duqu. En janvier dernier, les experts confirment que Duqu et Stuxnet sont issues de la même plateforme, créée en 2007 ou 2008.Entre 2007 et 2011, la plateforme a subi de lourds changements en vue d’éviter les anti-virus.Les experts ont ensuite eu du mal à identifier un bout de code de Duqu, écrit dans un langage inconnu. Cette portion, nommée Duqu Framework, a pour rôle de communiquer avec les serveurs de commande et de contrôle du virus une fois que celui-ci a infecté une machine, précise Le Monde Informatique. Ils ont donc lancé un appel à la communauté internationale spécialisée dans l’écriture informatique.Un appel à l’aide efficaceEt cet appel a, semble-t-il, porté ses fruits. En effet, l’éditeur russe a reçu plus de d’une centaine de contributions, fournissant de nombreuses hypothèses et suggestions. Le Kaspersky Labs a donc pu déterminer que Duqu est constitué de code C, orienté objet et compilé avec Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. Des options spéciales lui ont été appliquées pour optimiser la taille du code et son expansion en ligne.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Selon Igor Soumenkov, du Kaspersky Labs, “les auteurs auraient utiliser ce code car ils n’avaient pas suffisamment confiance dans le C++ ou qu’ils voulaient bénéficier d’une extrême portabilité avec le C. Ces deux raisons semblent indiquer que le code a été écrit par une équipe de développeurs expérimentés et old school. De telles techniques sont normalement rencontrées avec des logiciels professionnels et presque jamais avec des malwares”, explique Generation-nt.Le compilateur Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 a donc été utilisé car il permet de limiter la taille du code. Et selon itespresso, le code C, beaucoup plus polyvalent que le C++, peut être compilé pour de nombreux OS, notamment Mac, Linux et les OS mobiles. Comme quoi, personne n’est à l’abri… Le 21 mars 2012 à 15:45 • Maxime Lambert
