Alwar gangrape case SCST panel wants FIR against negligent cops

first_imgAlwar/Jaipur: National SC/ST Commission Vice Chairman L Murgan on Friday recommended that an FIR be registered against police officers whose alleged negligence led to delay in action in the Alwar gang rape case.Murgan along with Commission secretary Pritam Singh, Rajasthan Chief Secretary D B Gupta and DGP Kapil Garg held a meeting in Alwar to review the progress in the case, which has triggered wide-spread outrage in Rajasthan. “I have asked that negligent police officers should be booked under section 4 of SC/ST Act, charge sheet should be filed within 15 days and the case should be monitored on a daily basis. The family has demanded government job. I have asked the district magistrate to see how it can be provided, Murgan told reporters in Alwar after the meeting. The victim’s husband had claimed that he had approached the police on April 26 after the incident, but an FIR was filed on May 2. He had alleged that the police did not take action saying that they were busy with elections. On Tuesday night, the Rajasthan government removed Alwar Superintendent of Police Rajiv Pachar and suspended SHO of the Thanagazi police station Sardar Singh while four policemen were taken off active duty. Murgan said that a compensation of Rs 4,12,500 has been paid to the woman victim apart from Rs 50,000 provided by the women and child development department. The victim’s family submitted a memorandum for speedy trial, compensation and government job. The Commission has also asked the state government to check how the victim’s husband can be provided compensation under SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, he added. Meanwhile, protests continued in parts of the state including in Makrana of Nagaur district and Kota where people demanded strict action against the accused. Police have arrested all six accused — Indra Raj Gurjar, Mahesh Gurjar, Ashok Gurjar, Hansraj Gurjar, Chhote Lal Gurjar and Mukesh Gurjar — on charges of gang rape and filming the crime. On April 26, the victim was riding pillion on a motorcycle with her husband when the accused, who were on two bikes, accosted them at Thanagazi-Alwar bypass and took them to an isolated place off. They allegedly beat up the husband and raped her in front of him, threatening them of dire consequences. Mukesh Gurjar allegedly filmed the incident in his mobile phone. The victims went to the police when the accused demanded money for not circulating the video on social media, but the FIR was lodged only on May 2.last_img read more

Algerian FM Accuses Morocco of Laundering Drug Money in SubSaharan Africa

Rabat – The Algerian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Abdelkader Messahel, accused Morocco of “laundering drug money in Sub-Saharan Africa.” Invited to a debate hosted by the Forum of Algerian Business Leaders (FCE), Messahel, accused Morocco of “laundering cannabis money via its banks in the continent.”“Moroccan banks are being used in laundering the revenues from the sales of hashish. Everybody knows that,” the head of Algerian diplomacy claimed.  “I have been told this information by African heads of states,” Messahel claimed.Refusing to consider the Kingdom as an example for investment in Africa, Messahel also accused Morocco’s state-owned carrier, Royal Air Maroc of “carrying something other than passengers” to African destinations.The Algerian foreign minister said that for doing business in North Africa now, there is no “better country than Algeria.”The attack of the Algerian official comes on the heel of Morocco’s successful positioning as a trusted leader in Africa thanks to the African policy adopted by King Mohammed VI over the past 15 years.Morocco’ success in the continent, crowned by its triumphant reintegration to the African Union (UA) in January after thirty-three years of absence, has put Algeria in a difficult spot.The claims of the Algerian foreign minister are debunked by a recent survey that placed Morocco on the top African countries for doing business.According to a survey by an Africa-based economic research institute, Morocco ranked second best African nations for foreign direct investment (FDI) while Algeria ranked seventh.The ranking of Morocco in the Index is based on its solid economic growth, strategic geographic positioning, increased foreign direct investments, import reserve ratio, and an overall favorable business environment. read more

PM spoke to WilsonRaybould after SNCLavalin was denied a remediation deal

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould almost two weeks after federal prosecutors informed SNC-Lavalin it would not be invited to negotiate a settlement to help the company avoid criminal prosecution.Court documents show the Director of Public Prosecutions told the engineering and construction giant last Sept. 4 about its decision not to proceed with negotiations towards a remediation agreement to help SNC-Lavalin avoid bribery and fraud charges.Trudeau has said that he spoke with Wilson-Raybould about the SNC-Lavalin case 13 days later, on Sept. 17.The Sept. 4 decision date adds new information to the timeline of events — until now, it had appeared that Trudeau spoke with Wilson-Raybould before the prosecutor’s decision not to proceed with the settlement negotiation.The Globe and Mail newspaper has reported that Wilson-Raybould, who was shuffled into the veterans affairs portfolio in January, was pressured by staff inside the Prime Minister’s Office to help SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution related to contracts in Libya.Wilson-Raybould resigned from cabinet last week and has sought legal advice from former Supreme Court justice Thomas Cromwell amid questions over the SNC-Lavalin controversy.The Canadian Press read more

Fed says economy growing only modestly could mean longer period of bond

by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Jul 31, 2013 3:11 pm MDT WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve stopped short of signalling any timetable Wednesday for slowing its bond buying.Instead, it dropped hints that it might need to maintain its $85 billion a month in bond purchases, which have helped keep long-term borrowing rates ultra-low.In a statement after a two-day policy meeting the Fed:— Slightly downgraded its assessment of economic growth from “moderate” to “modest.”— Noted for the first time that mortgage rates, which have fueled home sales, “have risen somewhat” from record lows.— Pointed out that inflation has fallen “persistently below” its 2 per cent target. The Fed’s bond purchases could help stop inflation from falling so low that it could pose a threat to the economy.Taken together, such factors could cause the Fed to delay any pullback in its bond buying beyond September. September is when many economists have thought the Fed would start to slow its purchases because of a strengthening economy.“I don’t think the Fed will be ready” to slow its bond purchases in September,” said Brian Bethune, an economics professor at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, Calif. “Not only is growth running below their target, but inflation is below where they would like it to be.”The Fed does expect growth to pick up in the second half of the year. But it doesn’t appear ready to assume it will.Investors offered a muted reaction to the Fed’s policy statement. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 73 points an hour after the statement was released at 2 p.m. Eastern time. It had been up 13 points moments before.The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.62 per cent from 2.66 per cent just before the announcement.In its statement, the Fed said it will keep buying $85 billion a month in bonds to help lower long-term interest rates. And it says it plans to hold its key short-term rate at a record low near zero at least as long as the unemployment rate stays above 6.5 per cent and the inflation outlook remains mild.Stronger job growth has fueled speculation that the Fed could start reducing its purchases as soon as September. But economic growth remains sluggish and unemployment high at 7.6 per cent.At its June meeting, the Fed had described economic growth as “moderate,” and forecast that growth could be at least 2.3 per cent for the year. In the Fed’s sometimes arcane language, “moderate” is stronger than “modest.”Chairman Ben Bernanke said after the June meeting that the Fed could slow the bond purchases later this year if the economy and job market continued to strengthen.But after Wednesday’s meeting, the Fed described the economy as expanding only at a “modest pace.”Earlier Wednesday, the government said the economy grew at a subpar 1.7 per cent annual rate from April through June. The pace was an improvement from than the previous two quarters, which were revised lower. Still, growth remains sluggish and has been below 2 per cent for three straight quarters.Most economists, including those at the Fed, expect growth will strengthen in the second half of the year. That’s because they believe businesses will spend more, stronger job growth will fuel more consumer spending and government spending cuts will weigh less on overall growth.Job growth has averaged 202,000 a month since January, up from 180,000 a month in the last six months of 2012. That makes Friday’s July employment report even more critical to the Fed’s assessment of the economy. The report is expected to show employers kept hiring at roughly the same pace in July, while the unemployment rate ticked down to 7.5 per cent.Fed policymakers will also pay close attention to a report Thursday on July manufacturing activity. That could give them more insight into businesses confidence in the economy and how that will affect third-quarter growth.The Fed’s statement was approved on an 11-1 vote. Esther George, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, objected for the fifth straight meeting because of concerns that the bond buying could make financial markets unstable and increase the risk of inflation.

As Yet Another Jameis Winston Controversy Brews He Clearly

People, the haters, want to see Jameis Winston punished. . . at all costs. If he sneezes and does not cover his mouth, those who detest the Florida State Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback will scream infraction and call for a suspension.In one sense, Winston created this animus by his insistence on showing the youthful silliness of being 20. In another sense, the money-grubbing, victory-seeking adults in the NCAA, ACC and at Florida State have at least magnified his bad judgment by not sufficiently admonishing the young man.Now, whatever he does becomes grounds for punishment for those who cannot stomach the consistent drama Winston has sparked.The latest came Saturday during FSU’s 20-17 victory over Boston College, another Seminoles late-game triumph. In the third quarter, with 5:20 left in a tied game, Winston approached the line of scrimmage to initiate a play. Official Mike Webster stood between Winston and his center.To get to the line to start the play, Winston nudged Webster to the side so he could play football. The ref moved back, stumbled slightly and the play went on.After the game, screams came from all points asking why Winston was not penalized at least, suspended at worse for touching an official. Really?The bull’s eye is on the back of Winston’s jersey. The video clearly shows the referee impeding Winston’s progress. The referee was not offended, did not call a penalty and went on with the action. And yet there are cries of foul from outlets near and far.Winston said:  “He was just holding me because he said we had a substitution. It was actually a fast-tempo play, so I was trying to get up under there and let it ride.”Critics say “so what?” The rules state you cannot touch an official. The spirit of the rule is about forcefully handling an official, particularly in the anxious moments during a shoving match or melee. Winston’s act was not malicious. He was just trying to play football, which is the reason he was on the field.Others, like officiating stalwarts Dave Cutia of ESPN and Mike Pereira of Fox, said Winston should have been ejected and a 15-yard penalty should have been marked off. Seems ejection would have been a bit harsh when the referee caused the situation.The ACC ruled the contact “incidental and insignificant,” coordinator of officials Doug Rhoads said in a statement Sunday. So that should be a wrap with this situation, right?Not right.Because he is Winston and because he’s been embroiled in a sexual assault scandal, because he exited a grocery store without paying for crab legs, because he participated in a silly prank by yelling an obscenity on campus. .  . and, essentially, has not been penalized for any of these situations, some people want him sidelined for this act.If Johnny Manziel had moved a referee to get off a play, he would have been called a “gamer who was trying to do his job.”Winston shows he’s in command of the game, and he should be suspended? It’s not like he grabbed and threw the ref to the ground. He nudged him to the side so he could execute a play.But Winston’s history makes it easy for people to squawk when he’s involved in anything just a tad out of line. It would be a lot easier if Winston grew up. He doesn’t need to be punished to accomplish this. He just has to realize the outcomes of his drama could have been significantly different, and not in a good way.Realizing that would inspire him to grow up and do what’s right. For some, that would be a good thing. For others, it will not be enough. read more

NCAA hits Ohio State with 1year bowl ban loss of scholarships

The Ohio State football program has received a one-year postseason ban for the 2012 season and a loss of scholarships from the NCAA Committee of Infractions. According to a report from The Columbus Dispatch, the Buckeyes will be allowed to play in the Gator Bowl against the University of Florida on Jan. 2, but will forfeit postseason eligibility next season, which would include a possible berth in the Big Ten Football Championship Game and a bowl game.  OSU will also face a reduction of four scholarships over the next three years in addition to the five scholarships the school already forfeited over that time period, according to the report. The NCAA has added an another year of probation the the football program’s self-imposed two-year probation. Former OSU coach Jim Tressel has been handed a five-year “show cause” penalty for his role in the violations meaning any program that attempts to hire him in the next five years could face NCAA sanctions. The penalties stem from a series of NCAA violations the OSU football program committed dating back to December 2010 when OSU became mired in a scandal involving players receiving improper benefits including discounts on tattoos.  The Buckeyes are scheduled to play Jan. 2 in the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., where the team will play Florida. read more

Wintler Parks new stairs are built to last

first_imgAccessing Wintler Park from the east just got a little easier and safer.Contractors Art and Margaret Rojsza finished building a set of galvanized steel stairs that lead down to the waterfront park in Vancouver’s Riverview neighborhood. Site grading and final inspections remain, but otherwise they’re usable stairs.Many people frequent the park, which marks the east end of the popular Waterfront Renaissance Trail. The new stairway has 15 steps and three landings made of galvanized steel with grating supported by concrete, as well as handrails on either side.The project cost $34,308.“Hopefully, they’ll last forever,” Art Rojsza said.Although the Ferndale couple planned to finish the stairs by August, the project took longer to complete than expected. Stairs are among the more technical construction projects, Art Rojsza said. In this case, they couldn’t use heavy machinery to dig the hillside or install the steel stairs, so they used shovels and carried the pieces to the site.The couple also built a set of concrete stairs at Larch Corrections Center.Previously, there were seven railroad ties that had rotted, and the ground next to the steps had eroded. It made the pathway along the railroad and down into the park treacherous for nearby residents and regulars to the park. While neighbors initially offered to pay for and install new railroad ties as a quick, cost-effective way of improving the walkway, the city chose to go with a costlier, longer-term solution. The stairs are designed to be sturdy and safe while mitigating any environmental impact.“In terms of price and product, we went with an extremely durable steel solution, instead of just installing the same railroad ties that do not wear well and will eventually be unsafe due to weather and erosion,” Julie Hannon, director of Vancouver Parks and Recreation, said in an email. “These stairs required plans and specifications that are approved by an engineer. The product is also a steel material that required off-site fabrication and galvanizing. A few inspections were also required. All these items add up to a much more durable, safe and sustainable solution, but there are costs associated with the higher-quality solution.”last_img read more

John Laird To revitalize your love of Clark County try traveling

first_imgThree long trips in five weeks implanted powerful reminders that Clark County is the best place in the world. I often wonder if the grumpiest people around here are the folks who don’t travel much. When you hunker down in your comfort zone, you lose a point of reference. Slowly, the nest becomes not so comfortable, and complaints come too easily. Traveling allows comparisons.After each of the first two trips (six days in Dallas in mid-May, then three days in El Paso in early June), I could not return home quickly enough. On the PDX approach of the late-night flight from Dallas, I suppose not every passenger knew or cared that Mount Hood was passing by in dark secrecy to the left of our plane. But through hands tightly cupped on the window, I beheld an unprecedented sight: the faint vision of the snow-capped peak trying in vain to sneak by undetected. Such magnificence at midnight!The unrestrained joy of returning from these trips confirms that I am nearing the completion of my rehab as a recovering Texan. After 9 1/2 years, I declare myself an Official Northwesterner, free of the demon that stalked me for five-plus decades. Granted, I’ll always be recovering, never fully cleansed. The temptation to fall off the wagon will linger. And I’ll suffer occasional relapses, probably waking up in some gutter in Dallas or El Paso, acting and sounding like a Texan. But just one gully-washing thunderstorm in Big D, or one sniff of New Mexico wildfire smoke wafting into West Texas, will coax me back toward recovery.Warning: Tolls ahead!The third trip (three days in Boulder, Colo., last weekend) reminded me that different places sometimes aren’t so different. Like some people here, Coloradoans are racked by the modern affliction known as Toll Derangement Syndrome. They’re several years ahead of us, but they seem just as bitterly divided in debating whether drivers should suffer the indignity of having to pay to drive.last_img read more

Dragon Lore Origins of the FireBreathing Beast

first_imgFrom ancient Greek myths to Game of Thrones, the legend of the dragon is one of the most enduring and romanticized throughout history. It has been traced back as far as 4000 BC and exists in all parts of the world. In and around Europe dragons are viewed mostly as monsters of evil intent. In ancient Rome, the army used dragons as symbols of strength.During the Renaissance, fear of sea monsters kept sailors from venturing too far from known waters, and the edges of their maps would read “Here be dragons.”Considered one of the great medieval world maps. Probably a copy of the map that adorned the bed chamber of King Henry III.The Oxford English Dictionary explains the etymology of the word dragon, which it says entered the English lexicon in around 1220 and was used in English versions of the Bible from the early 14th century.Dragon derives from Old French, the language used by nobles and law courts following the Norman conquest of 1066. This in turn stems from the Latin draconem or draco meaning “big serpent,” which was derived from ancient Greek δράκων (drakon).An early appearance of the Old English word dracan in Beowulf; a heroic poem of the 8th century,In Greek mythology, the Hesperian Dragon named Ladon was a hundred-headed serpent that guarded the golden apples in the garden of the Hesperides.Historically, European dragons were viewed as being evil, jealous, and greedy hoarders of treasure.Ancient Greek mosaic from Caulonia, Italy, depicting a cetus or sea-dragon.In the stories, they were generally treated as violent monsters who must be slain by heroes and saints. European dragons could have four legs, two legs, or none, and often had wings.Illustration of a winged, fire-breathing dragon by Friedrich Justin Bertuch from 1806.In Asia, and especially China, the view of these creatures was very different. Dragons were thought to live under the ocean in the winter, arising in the spring with a clap of thunder to bring the rain needed for their crops, according to the American Museum of Natural History.Carved imperial Chinese dragons at Nine-Dragon Wall, Beihai Park, Beijing. Photo by splitbrain CC BY-SA 2.0They breathed clouds and moved the seasons. The dragon was the symbol of the Chinese Emperor, and the Imperial throne was called the Dragon Throne. Known as the Dragon, the emperor ruled in harmony, and brought peace and prosperity to all.In Chinese history, the Dragon Throne of the Emperor of China (pictured here in the Palace of Heavenly Purity) was erected at the center of the Forbidden City, which was itself regarded as the center of the world.Chinese dragons are depicted as being more serpent-like, with long, snaking bodies and usually had four legs. They are generally seen as wingless.How people view them and what they believe about them varies widely, but the idea is too widespread not to think there are some common roots.Painting of a Japanese dragon by Hokusai (c. 1730 – 1849).What made people from cultures that may have never met all come up with the idea of dragons?There are several theories about what creatures could have been the source of the dragon myths, any or all of them may be true.Attic red-figure kylix painting from c. 480–470 BC showing Athena observing as the Colchian dragon disgorges the hero Jason.Ancient Origins discusses a number of potential roots. The first one is crocodiles. Saltwater and Nile crocodiles are the two largest living reptiles on earth today.Currently, saltwater crocodiles live in the eastern Indian Ocean region, and Nile crocs in the rivers, marshes, and lakes of Sub-Saharan Africa. But 1,000 years they had a much larger habitat range, and could have been encountered by people living in Greece, Spain, and Southern Italy.Bizarre Blue Dragon-Like Creatures Wash Up on Beach, Experts Warn Not to TouchNile crocodiles can grow to 20 feet in length, and have the ability to lift much of their bodies off the ground. This may be a hint about why European dragons are often described as rearing up.Young Nile Crocodile gaping while basking in the sun.Many archaeologists believe that ancient people envisioned dragons when they found the fossils of certain sorts of dinosaurs, specifically, the types that had very long necks.Having no explanation for the lengthy fossils, they would have imagined a beast that seemed to fit what they were seeing.A bone of the legendary Wawel Dragon (Smok Wawelski), outside Wawel Cathedral, Krakow, Poland. Photo by Yohan eunan CC BY SA 3.0There is evidence to suggest that there were discoveries of dinosaur fossils being uncovered in China as early as the 4th century BC. Fossils belonging to flying dinosaurs, such as pterodactyl or pteranodons, could very well be part of why some cultures envision dragons as having wings.Another, similar, theory is that people imagined dragons when the skeletons of whales washed on shore near early coastal dwellings.Because early people didn’t have suitable sailing and navigation technology, they would most likely only have seen the immense whales from a distance when the creatures were living.The Destruction of Leviathan (1865) by Gustave Doré.This could certainly be the root of sailor’s fear of “dragons” in the waters, as well as the ocean-dwelling Asian view. This could also be one of the reasons that some dragons are pictured as having wings.A medieval bestiary dated to around 1260 AD, contains the oldest recognizable image of a fully modern, western dragon.Snakes are also thought to be a basis for the dragon myth. Although even very large snakes are much smaller than dragons are said to be, humankind has a deeply embedded instinct to fear them.Illustration from an ancient Egyptian papyrus manuscript showing the god Set spearing the serpent Apep as he attacks the sun boat of Ra.In ancient Egypt, for example, Apep was a deity known as the Serpent of the Nile. He was viewed as the lord of Chaos, and opposed to light and truth.Read another story from us: The bizarre story of the dragon’s rib in the cathedral of AtessaEach of these theories show some echo of what we think about when we think of dragons. All of them together show a more complete picture of the huge beasts that feature in so many stories and myths.last_img read more
