The trial in the rape case against Tehelka magazine founder-editor Tarun Tejpal has been postponed to March 15, 16 and 17 by a court in Mapusa in North Goa.Earlier, the court was supposed to hear the case from February 26 to March 1.The postponement was made following a request from Tejpal regarding a change in lawyer, said Special Public Prosecutor Francisco Tavora.The case will begin with the examination of the survivor by the prosecution.The court has already framed charges against Tejpal under various sections of Indian Penal Code , imncluding that of sexual harassment and provisions related to rape of his then junior female journalist colleague in a five-star hotel in North Goa in November 2013 during an annual event of the publication.Tejpal had denied all allegations.The court recently framed charges following a direction of the Supreme Court on December 6 last to complete the trial within three months.Tejpal was arrested on November 30, 2013 by the Goa Crime Branch after his anticipatory bail plea was rejected by a trial court. He has been out on bail since 2014.
Goa police have started an investigation into the case where eight girls with burn injuries were rescued from two flats near Baina beach at Vasco on April 15. The girls, in the 11 to 12 age-group, were under the care of Venus Habeeb, a 65-year-old resident of Baina, who allegedly brought them from Andhra Pradesh. Goa police on Wednesday sent a team to the State to probe the origin of the eight girls.The case came to light when a girl from Mangor-Hill in Vasco in South Goa noticed burn injuries on the hands of the girls when they met at a local church for prayers on the evening of April 15. The girl immediately dialled 1098, CHILDLINE India Foundation’s toll-free helpline, which promptly intimated the police.Vasco police raided the flats owned by the accused and rescued the girls. Ms. Habeeb was arrested and the flats were sealed. The police registered a case against the accused under Sections 363 (kidnapping), 324 (simple injuries) of the Indian Penal Code, and Section 8 of Goa Children’s Act.Ms. Habeeb was produced before the Judicial Magistrate First Class court in Vasco, which remanded her in police custody for five days. Police Sub Inspector Ritesh Tari said, “The police team is visiting Andhra Pradesh to find out if the accused adopted the girls or bought them from their parents.” Mr. Tari said the accused had enrolled the girls in a reputed school in Vasco, but used to allegedly assault them with a belt and pipes. On Tuesday, the court recorded the statements of all the girls, which Mr. Tari said would be kept confidential. The statements will be sent to Goa Children’s Court, which will hear Ms. Habeeb’s bail plea on Thursday. Mr. Tari said more persons could be involved in the case.

By Philem Dipak Singh Colombo, Sep 29 (PTI) Indian team Marathwada Mitra Mandal College of Commerce Saturday finished runner-up in the university level Red Bull Campus Cricket World Finals T20 tournament after losing to Sri Lanka’s Business Management School in the summit clash here. The MMMCC from Pune was the in-form team of the tournament having won all the five league matches, but in the final at the Sinhalese Sports Club, the Sri Lankan side emerged victorious by five wickets in a thrilling match which was decided in the last ball. The Indian team had beaten the home side by seven wickets in the league stage. The Indiam team had straightway qualified for the final after topping the league stage while the Sri Lankan side had defeated Pakistan’s Karachi University in the play-off match on Friday. Put into bat, MMMCC posted 211 for two with opener Murtaza Shabbir (76 not out from 48 balls) and one-down Yash Nahar (58) hitting half centuries, while Divyang Hingekar (46 not out) also made a substantial contribution. The Indians scored 42 runs from the single ‘Energiser Over’ which they took in the 19th over. From 152 for two, they jumped to 194 and then added another 17 runs from the ‘normal’ final over. The Energiser Over, one per side, is chosen by the batting team at any point after the Powerplay overs and each run scored is counted double. Any wicket taken during that over will see five penalty runs being deducted from the batting side. Chasing 212 for a win, the Sri Lankan team remained in the hunt by reaching 141 for two with the ‘Energiser Over’ still to come. But a double dismissal in the 16th over brought two new batsmen on the crease. The home team also could accumulate only 26 runs from the 18th ‘Energiser Over’, leaving it to score 32 runs from the final two ‘normal’ overs.advertisement The Sri Lankan team was five down at that stage but its lower-order batsmen played superbly to pull it off in the final delivery of the match, reaching to 212 for six from 20 overs. Big-hitter Ranitha Liyanarachchi produced an electric finish, hitting a six over deep cover on his way to 26 not out off 14 balls, while MMMCC players allowed nerves to get the better of them as two catches were grassed and four byes conceded in the final overs. Thanks to another big Liyanarachchi six, this one over long on, BMS scored the 15 runs required in the final over. The scores were tied in the penultimate delivery and then Devind Pathmanathan scored a single to trigger celebration at the Sri Lankan camp. This was the second title for BMS, having won the tournament in 2016 while it had finished runner-up last year. For MMMCC, this was the third time it was representing India in the tournament and the team was making its first appearance in the final. D A V College, Chandigarh had won the expanded edition of the tournament in 2013 while Rizvi College from Mumbai won the inaugural event in 2012 when it was competed among Asian countries only. Red Bull Campus Cricket is a global T20 cricket tournament for university teams, serving as an international platform for young and budding cricketers to showcase their talent and hone their skills. The tournament is now in its seventh year. Six teams took part in the World Finals this year. Teams from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and United Arab Emirates took part in this edition. PTI PDS AH

CALGARY — A new report says direct employment in Canada’s oil and gas sector is expected to fall by more than 12,000 jobs this year.PetroLMI says the workforce is forecast to drop to about 173,300 in 2019, a decline of 23 per cent from 226,500 in 2014.It says the oil and gas labour market shrank quickly in 2015 and 2016 following a commodity price collapse and remained relatively flat through 2017 and 2018.In its 2019 labour market update, PetroLMI says about 12,500 jobs are at risk this year due to factors including low commodity prices, a decline in capital spending and uncertainty about getting oil and gas to market.It says workers in oil and gas services will be face the highest employment risk in 2019, while the pipeline sub-sector is the only category that is expected to register slight growth.Provincially, it says British Columbia is poised to lose the fewest jobs while Alberta is expected to lose the most.“Until such time as additional export capacity becomes available, the employment outlook for Canada’s oil and gas sector will continue to be impacted,” said Carol Howes, PetroLMI vice-president.The Canadian Press
Quantitative easing ‘not on the table,’ Finance Minister Joe Oliver says by Michelle Mark, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 21, 2015 4:17 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 22, 2015 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Finance Minister Joe Oliver says he doesn’t see any need for quantitative easing, despite concerns that the country may have fallen into a recession.“We don’t see any need for quantitative easing in this environment,” Oliver said Tuesday at Ryerson University in Toronto, where he was promoting an expanded free trade agreement with Israel.“I mean, after all, we’ve seen 90,000 jobs created this year, and we look forward to a positive year of growth.“Quantitative easing is not on the table.”Some experts have wondered about the possibility of quantitative easing after the Bank of Canada cut its key interest rate last Wednesday by a quarter of a percentage point to 0.5 per cent.Quantitative easing is a monetary policy that would see the Bank of Canada purchase government securities or other securities in an effort to increase the supply of money and stimulate the economy.Other areas of the world have used the measure when they have fallen on hard times.The European Central Bank has been buying 60 billion euros a month in government and corporate bonds, and the U.S. Federal Reserve implemented a $85 billion a month bond-buying program to kick-start its economy before ending the program late last year.The debate over quantitative easing has sparked controversy in the past.Oliver’s predecessor drew criticism in October 2013, when former finance minister Jim Flaherty described the American policy as “the printing of money” and said he never supported it. That was despite appearing to back the Federal Reserve’s decision in 2010.Flaherty also signed off on a similar policy in 2009 during the height of the financial crisis, although it was never implemented.In reducing its overnight rate last week, the central bank also predicted a contraction in the second quarter due to lower oil prices and slumping exports — which, if true, would mean that the country fell into a technical recession, though Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz hasn’t used the r-word.Poloz said he sees reason to believe there will be renewed growth in the third quarter, but he added that if matters don’t unfold as anticipated, the Bank of Canada has room to manoeuvre as well as other “tools” in its monetary policy toolbox.
“The change met the expectations of most Somalis and has raised higher expectations for more change,” the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS), Augustine P. Mahiga, told a Security Council meeting on Somalia. The war-torn Horn of Africa nation now has a new Constitution, a new Parliament and new elected Speaker and President. Earlier this month, President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud appointed Abdi Farah Shirdon as the new Prime Minister. Once confirmed, Mr. Shirdon will form the country’s first post-transition Government. Briefing the 15-member body via video-conference, Mr. Mahiga added that the Somali authorities now urgently need assistance to meet new challenges. Among the priority tasks facing the new administration is to move quickly to lead in the stabilization of the liberated areas.“This is critical in filling the vacuum which could otherwise emerge from the retreat of the insurgents,” the envoy said. “The immediate challenge which the Government faces is, hence, the establishment of local and district administrations, justice and rule of law, as well as to provide basic services to the population.”He noted that the security situation in Somalia has “vastly improved,” thanks to the continuing efforts of the UN-supported African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), the Ethiopian forces and the Somali Government and its local allied forces.“The fall of Kismayo, the last stronghold of the extremist Al-Shabaab insurgents, in late September, marked a decisive turning-point in the conflict,” he stated, referring to the southern port city that was liberated by AMISOM. “The challenge now is to align the security and political strategies in Kismayo as part of the overall stabilization strategy in the newly-recovered areas.” Although the Al-Shabaab has now dispersed into a “rag-tag militia,” it has nonetheless, embarked on more asymmetrical, terrorist and hit-and-run tactics as it occasionally does in Mogadishu, said the UN official. “These are tactics which AMISOM and the Somali forces must be equipped to deal with, as they control more territory and their lines of supply get extended. Another worrying trend is the ongoing assassinations and targeted killings of civilians,” Mr. Mahiga said. “These trends call for the expeditious deployment of AMISOM to its full strength, with the necessary logistical support and the enhanced training and strengthening of the Somali Security Forces.” It is also essential that AMISOM – the current mandate for which expires on 31 October – is supported to control more effectively the coastal waters around Mogadishu, Marka, Baraawe and Kismayo, in order to protect its own forces, supply lines, interrupt Al-Shabaab re-supply lines and effectively secure the ports for commercial use, Mr. Mahiga added.The African Union (AU) has informed the Council that, working together with the UN, it intends to undertake a thorough assessment of AMISOM and how best it can contribute to the stabilization of Somalia in light of the gains made on the ground and the challenges ahead. This process is expected to start in the next few weeks and to be concluded in the coming months. In the meantime, the AU has requested that the Council authorize a technical rollover of the current support package for AMISOM for four additional months, until February 2013, with some slight adjustments “to take into account pressing issues on the ground,” according to a letter before the Council. This includes requests for the deployment of an additional 50 civilian personnel across the Mission area, as well as a maritime component, taking into consideration “the critical role of naval assets for the effective implementation of the AMISOM mandate and the stabilization of Somalia.” Mr. Mahiga said that UNPOS had begun a consultative process to review the future presence of the UN in Somalia, and that this would be led by the needs and expectations of the Somalis.He added that the political and security strides that Somalia has made must not distract the international community from the ongoing dire humanitarian situation, in which more than two million Somalis remain in urgent need of food aid and other assistance. Funding is drying up, less than one year after famine raged and despite negative humanitarian indicators, he noted. “I urge the international partners to sustain and expand their assistance to Somalia, to prevent it from sliding back into famine and misery,” he said.
According to the latest figures from the International Institute of Strategic Studies, Russia’s defence budget was around $46.6bn in 2016 and Britain’s was around $52.5bn or £38.3bn. Yet though Britain apparently spends more, Russia had 831,000 active members of the military compared to 152,000 in the UK and there is a vast difference in the volume of equipment. For two countries that spend similar sums on their defence budgets, the size and scale of the Russian and British military are strikingly different. Comparing armies alone,… The head of the British Army, Gen Sir Nick Carter, has warned that Britain is struggling to keep up with Russian military advances as he makes the case for more money.
Denison Mines Corp has retained Stantec Consulting Inc and ENGCOMP Engineering and Computing Professionals Inc to lead and author the PFS for the Wheeler River project, which is the largest known, undeveloped high-grade uranium project in the infrastructure rich eastern portion of the Athabasca Basin region in northern Saskatchewan.In addition to its in-house project development team, Denison has assembled a group of leading engineering and consulting firms, with mine development, metallurgical, and environmental experience applicable to the development of a large-scale uranium mining operation in northern Saskatchewan, to support the completion of the PFS for the Wheeler River project.Stantec & ENGCOMP have been assigned responsibility for authoring the PFS in accordance with NI 43-101, including completion of the level of engineering design required to assemble a Class 4 capital cost estimate, project schedule, and an evaluation of infrastructure services and systems required for the development of a mining project in northern Saskatchewan. The work is planned to be managed primarily from Saskatoon and Sudbury, and is expected to leverage Stantec’s experience and track-record of executing all phases of mining studies and development, as well as ENGCOMP’s experience in Saskatchewan with heavy industrial projects in uranium and potash mining.Hatch has been assigned responsibility for the mineral processing scope of the PFS, which is expected to include the development of an appropriate process design criteria for the recovery of uranium from the Gryphon and Phoenix deposits, as well as carrying out a capacity review of Denison’s 22.5% owned McClean Lake mill and developing various mineral processing inputs into the overall PFS. In completing this work, Hatch is expected to leverage its previous experience with the McClean Lake mill facility.Throughout the course of the PFS, Denison Environmental Services (DES) has been assigned responsibility for managing the on-going environmental baseline data collection and regulatory aspects of the project to ultimately support the federal and provincial environmental assessment processes. DES is expected to leverage its experience working with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, as a uranium facility operator for the Company’s reclaimed uranium mine sites in Elliot Lake, Ontario.The purpose of the PFS is to establish the best economic options for the development of Wheeler River’s Gryphon and Phoenix deposits into a large scale, low cost uranium mining operation. In addition to focusing on project economics, the company’s development team is committed to addressing the challenge of sustainability – ensuring the Wheeler River project is able to deliver value to the company’s shareholders, while simultaneously providing economic and social benefits to impacted communities and minimizing its environmental footprint and impact.On September 12, 2017, Denison announced a significant increase to the summer 2017 exploration drilling program at Wheeler River, which necessitated the continuation of exploration activities, in the vicinity of the Gryphon deposit, through to late October. On November 27, 2017, the company announced assay results from the 64 drill holes completed during the summer drilling program. The results were highlighted by 91% of drill holes intersecting significant uranium mineralization, leading to considerable geological interpretation and review ahead of the completion of an updated estimate of mineral resources for the Gryphon deposit. The updated estimate is expected to incorporate the results from an additional 141 drill holes completed at Gryphon since the maiden mineral resource estimate for the deposit was completed in late 2015. Work towards the completion of an updated estimate of mineral resources for the Wheeler River project is expected to continue during the first quarter of 2018.The updated estimate of indicated mineral resources for the Wheeler River project is an important part of the PFS process. While the Company is currently targeting completion of the PFS by mid-2018, the timing of the PFS will ultimately be contingent on various factors, which includes the timing of the completion of the updated estimate of the mineral resources.Wheeler River is a joint venture between Denison (60% and operator), Cameco Corp (30%), and JCU (Canada) Exploration Co Ltd (10%), and is host to the high-grade Gryphon and Phoenix uranium deposits discovered by Denison in 2014 and 2008, respectively.On April 4, 2016, Denison announced the results of a PEA for Wheeler River, which considers the potential economic merit of co-developing the high-grade Gryphon and Phoenix deposits as a single underground mining operation. The PEA returned a base case pre-tax IRR of 20.4% based on the current long term contract price of uranium ($44.00/lb U3O8), and Denison’s share of estimated initial capital expenditures of C$336 million (C$560 million on 100% ownership basis). Exploration results from the subsequent drilling programs have not been incorporated into the resource estimate or the PEA.As previously announced on January 10, 2017, Denison has entered into an agreement with its Wheeler River Joint Venture partners, Cameco and JCU, to fund 75% of Joint Venture expenses in 2017 and 2018 (ordinarily 60%) in exchange for an increase in Denison’s interest in the project to up to approximately 66%. Under the terms of the agreement, Cameco will fund 50% of its ordinary 30% share in 2017 and 2018, and JCU is expected to continue to fund its 10% interest in the project.Denison is a uranium exploration and development company with interests focused in the Athabasca Basin region of northern Saskatchewan, Canada. In addition to its 60% owned Wheeler River project, Denison’s exploration portfolio consists of numerous projects covering approximately 347,000 ha in the Athabasca Basin region, including 327,000 ha in the infrastructure rich eastern portion of the Athabasca Basin. Denison’s interests in Saskatchewan also include a 22.5% ownership interest in the McClean Lake joint venture (MLJV), which includes several uranium deposits and the McClean Lake uranium mill, which is currently processing ore from the Cigar Lake mine under a toll milling agreement, plus a 25.17% interest in the Midwest and Midwest A deposits, and a 64.22% interest in the J Zone deposit and Huskie discovery on the Waterbury Lake property. Each of Midwest, Midwest A, J Zone and Huskie are located within 20 km of the McClean Lake mill.

Whatever your opinions of the Geohot lawsuit there’s is no denying that this has made Sony paranoid over the future security of its platform. A perfect example of this is a discovery made in the latest PS3 3.56 firmware upgrade.Already we have seen that the update has stopped users from being able to upgrade/swap their hard drives, albeit this was a small bug and not a deliberate attempt by Sony to deter piracy. But it has also been discovered that the firmware contains a rootkit that allows Sony to perform remote code execution when a console is connected to the PlayStation Network.In plain English this means that certain files could be scanned and detected by Sony i.e. custom firmware/homebrew applications, and a report sent back about them.We are not sure how accurate this is, or what Sony would do with this info, but if true it could be one way for Sony to detect potential security breaches on the system and allow it to implement future updates to combat problems (this perhaps could be with games that have been exploited, MW2 anyone?).Either way, it’s news that will stir yet more arguments within the PS3 community. However, if it can be used to clean up the PlayStation Network, this has to be good for genuine gamers who simply want to play their games clean and fairly.Read more at Jailbreak Scene

The American Soybean Association (ASA) urges all members and state soybean associations to submit comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the Proposed Rule for biodiesel volume requirements under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The deadline for comments to EPA is July 11. Instructions for submitting comments are provided at the Soy Action Center.The Proposed Rule calls for 2.1 billion gallons of biomass-based diesel in 2018. As a point of reference, the biomass-based diesel requirements for 2016 and 2017 are 1.9 billion and 2.0 billion gallons, respectively. The biomass-based diesel utilization in the U.S. was approximately 2.1 billion gallons in 2015 and is expected to exceed that amount in 2016. As you can see, we are already at the levels EPA is proposing for 2018 and the volumes of imports have been increasing the past several years and are expected to continue to grow.There is a 60 day public comment period running through July 11 and states and members are encouraged to submit comments.

TurkeyTurkish police launched a massive manhunt Sunday for a gunman who killed 39 people, including several foreigners, in a rampage at an upmarket nightclub in Istanbul where revellers were celebrating New Year.After the latest in a string of deadly attacks to hit the country, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the carnage sought to sow chaos, but vowed Turkey would never bow to the threat.The shooting spree at the waterside Reina nightclub erupted when 2017 in Turkey was just 75 minutes old, as people were seeing out a year of unprecedented bloodshed that saw hundreds die in strikes blamed on jihadists and Kurdish militants and a failed coup.The assailant shot dead a policeman and a civilian at the club entrance and then turned his gun on partygoers inside where up to 700 people were ringing in the New Year.NTV broadcaster said the gunman fired between 120 and 180 rounds in the seven-minute attack, during which many revellers threw themselves into the freezing waters of the Bosphorus to escape death.‘Our heart is bleeding’ -One witness spoke of the panic and carnage at the venue, considered one of Istanbul’s swankiest.“Just as we were settling down, by the door there was a lot of dust and smoke. Gunshots rang out,” professional footballer Sefa Boydas told AFP.“People were walking on top of people.”Italian tourist Maximilien said: “We came here to have a good time today but everything was suddenly transformed into chaos and a night of horror.”Television pictures showed party-goers dressed to the nines—men in suits and women in cocktail dresses—emerging from the exclusive club in a state of shock.Albert Farhat recounted to Lebanese TV station LBCI the moment the club came under attack.“Around 1.15, we heard Kalashnikov fire. We thought it might be people who had drunk too much and were fighting but then people started throwing themselves to the ground,” said Farhat.Candles and flowers piled up outside the club in tribute to the victims and its Facebook page has been changed to a black square of mourning.“Our heart is bleeding,” wrote the club’s owner Mehmet Kocarslan.The attack evoked memories of the November 2015 carnage in Paris when Islamic State jihadists unleashed a gun and bombing rampage on nightspots in the French capital, killing 130 people including 90 at the Bataclan concert hall.‘Details emerging’ -Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said the gunman was still at large after slipping away unnoticed after the attack, denying earlier reports a Santa Claus costume had been used as a disguise.The assailant “left the gun and went away from the scene of the incident,” he told reporters in Istanbul. “It was an armed terrorist.”Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said the gunman had arrived with a gun concealed underneath an overcoat but subsequently exited the venue wearing a different garment.Police and intelligence services were beginning to piece together clues about the attack and the public would be informed soon, Yildirim said.However, he did not pin the blame on any particular group and no-one has yet claimed responsibility for the bloodshed.The Firat news agency, seen as close to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), quoted PKK leader Murat Karayilan as saying no Kurdish force was involved in the attack.Last year, multiple attacks were blamed on the PKK or claimed by the Kurdistan Freedom Falcons (TAK), a radical offshoot of the group proscribed by Turkey’s Western allies.According to Dogan news agency, 35 of the victims had been identified — 24 foreigners and 11 Turks.Another 65 people were being treated in hospital.One survivor, Francois al-Asmar, from Lebanon, told of his lucky escape.“I was saved by my passport which I was carrying right near my heart,” he told Lebanese television.‘Sneaky’ attack -The Reina club is a magnet for wealthy foreigners and there were a number of Arabs among the dead and wounded, including Saudis, Jordanians, Iraqis and Tunisians.France said a dual-national Tunisian-French woman had died along with her Tunisian husband, while India said it had lost two nationals.A young Arab Israeli woman, 18-year-old Lian Nasser, was killed, according to Israel’s foreign ministry.Istanbul governor Vasip Sahin said the attacker “targeted innocent people who had only come here to celebrate the New Year and have fun”.The attack crystallised fears New Year celebrations could present a tempting target for extremists.From Sydney to Paris, Rio to London, security had been boosted over such fears and at least 17,000 police officers were deployed in Istanbul, some dressed themselves as Santa Claus as cover, according to television reports.World leaders rushed to condemn the attacks, with Russian President Vladimir Putin saying it was “hard to imagine a crime more cynical than the killing of civilians during a New Year’s celebration”.German Chancellor Angela Merkel denounced “an inhumane, sneaky attack on people who wanted to celebrate” while Pope Francis condemned the shooting in his New Year message.
