A five-member team of the vigilance department on Thursday carried out raids to arrest Vinod Kumar, senior IAS officer, who was convicted in a corruption case on Tuesday.Vigilance sleuths searched Mr. Kumar’s official residence at VIP Colony in Nayapalli on Thursday, but they had to return empty-handed. They had also raided his residence on Wednesday evening.Special vigilance court, Bhubaneswar, had issued non-bailable arrest warrants while convicting the 1989 batch IAS officer, who as managing director of the Odisha Rural Housing Development Corporation (ORHDC) was involved in arbitrary loan disbursement in the rural housing development programme“We have so far conducted three rounds of searches. The officer is untraceable. It seems he is avoiding arrest. We are trying our best to find him out,” said Nirmal Mohanty, Deputy Superintendent of Police (vigilance).If the officer is not traced by Friday, process would be initiated to declare him a proclaimed absconder and attach his property, he said.
Greece’s Giorgos Samaras celebrates with his team after he scored on a penalty kick in the final minutes of the match. (AP Photo)Georgios Samaras scored an injury-time penalty to put Greece into the second round of the World Cup with a 2-1 win over Ivory Coast on Tuesday. Samaras was adjudged to have been tripped in the area by substitute Giovanni Sio, and calmly slotted in the spot kick for a win that puts Greece through to the knockout stage. Ivory Coast would have advanced with a draw. “This means so much to me, to us … Tonight we had energy,” Samaras said, dedicating the win to Greeks suffering through financial crisis. “We really hope we can make the people happy back home. We are a team. A team – that’s it.” The Greeks had taken the lead just before halftime through substitute Andreas Samaris, but substitute Wilfried Bony equalized for Ivory Coast in the 74th, beating goalkeeper Pangiotis Glykos from close range after being set up by Gervinho. That goal looked like it would put the Africans through until the late drama. Samaras met a cross in the area and went to shoot with his left leg, which got caught against the leg of Sio. Samaras’ foot then hit the ground and he fell to the turf, drawing a penalty. With his country’s hopes on the line, Samaras sent his spot kick past goalkeeper Boubacar Barry, who guessed the right way but couldn’t keep the ball out. Veteran striker Didier Drogba started for Ivory Coast along with Yaya and Kolo Toure despite the recent death of their brother Ibrahim. The Ivorians wore black armbands as a sign of mourning.advertisement Greece, which had failed to score in the previous two Group C matches, finished second in Group C with four points, behind winner Colombia with nine. Ivory Coast had three and Japan one. Greece had not scored in its first two games in Brazil, but missed a handful of scoring chances against Ivory Coast, hitting the crossbar twice with shots from distance. The Greeks were also forced to make two early substitutions after valuable midfielder Pangiotis Kone and goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis were injured in the first half.

The Best CBD Oil and Skincare Creams for Managing Pain This Solar Egg Sauna is Worth Traveling to Sweden For Close 7 Fall Cocktail Recipes to Enjoy With Cooler Weather Editors’ Recommendations If You Haven’t Visited the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, What Are You Waiting For? The McMenamins Effect: How 2 Brothers Helped Start Beervana The Best Whiskey for Whipping Up a Whiskey Sour Swedes and saunas go together better than tequila and limes, and who could blame them— Saunas rock.But it would take a highly-unique, out-of-this-world sauna to make a trek around the world, up to the Arctic circle, worth it for the sake of one schvitz.And that sauna is the Solar Egg.Located in a small town of Kiruna in the northern Lapland area of Sweden (that’s where reindeer and Santa Claus live), the golden Solar Egg sauna sits in the middle of the arctic chill, glowing as a beacon of warmth for both visitors and locals.The brainchild of Swedish design duo Bigert & Bergström, consisting of Mats Bigert and Lars Bergström, Solar Egg was created not only to sweat out the toxins and renew, but as a symbol of identity for the small town.Solar Egg/Studio Bigert & BergströmBigert & Bergström were commissioned by Swedish developer Riksbyggen to design Solar Egg as a commemorative social sculpture for the residents of Kiruna, who were collectively displaced eastward of their home. With the entire city relocated, mining could continue for another 20-some years.The installation has sparked a heated debate (no pun intended) about the impacts large-scale mining has taken on Kiruna.“When Riksbyggen asked us to interpret Kiruna, we felt it was natural to explore a space that unites and encourages conversation,” said Bigert. “Saunas are sacrosanct places where you can discuss all manner of things – from the big to the small.”The duo created this setting with a 16.4-foot-tall and 13-foot-wide geometric egg, encased by a shell of 69 separate pieces of gold-plated stainless steel. The mirrored surface of these panels reflects the landscape of Kiruna back onto itself, and yet boldly stand out against the vast and icy surrounding.The affect truly is otherworldly.To get inside, a drop staircase lowers from an opening in the side, outlined with jagged cracks as opposed to a linear door. The oval sauna features arching rows of light aspen wood, while the wall panels and floor are made from pine.Interior of Solar Egg/Studio Bigert & BergströmThe stove takes property in the center of the room, where the wood-fired burner is molded in the shape of an anatomical heart. Heat eminates from the fill of large stonesBigert & Bergström also designed Solar Egg to be transportable. Each piece can be taken apart and relocated within the city.Solar Egg is spacious enough for eight people.We’re fixin’ to make ourselves a part of that hatch soon, as joining this communal sweat is a way to experience an iconic installation by Bigert & Bergström, and listen and take part in the larger conversation.
New legislation will support children and put their interests first when families break up. Amendments to the Maintenance and Custody Act, introduced today, Nov. 24, will update language and terminology around custody and parenting arrangements, introduce new terms for interacting and spending time with a child, and by establishing the use of a parenting plan, help parents clarify their responsibilities. The amendments will also introduce specific guidelines that families must follow when a parent or guardian wishes to move away with their children. “It is a hard job being a parent; it’s an even harder job when both parents are not living under the same roof,” said Justice Minister Diana Whalen. “We are modernizing Nova Scotia’s family laws to help families manage through the emotional challenges of family break up and to ensure that the best interests of their children are always put first.” New enforcement options are also outlined, giving courts methods to enforce parenting arrangements under a court order. The name of the legislation will also change to the Parenting and Support Act. “The demands and expectations on parents in our society are constantly evolving and it’s important for the law to keep up,” said Kenzie MacKinnon, a family law lawyer and the Nova Scotia Barristers Society’s representative on government’s expert advisory panel on the Maintenance and Custody Act. “These proposed amendments will better align our Nova Scotia legislation with the lives of modern Nova Scotia families.” Key amendments include: replacing the terms “access” and “visiting privileges” with “parenting time”, “contact time” and “interaction” establishing a framework for a parenting plan that outlines each parents’ responsibilities and the living arrangements for the child to encourage planning and reduce confusion new guidelines that require parents who are moving to give advance notice and establish, depending on the parenting arrangements, who must prove whether or not the relocation will benefit the child. For example, a move to another province or country a clear list of actions that can be taken for those who fail to comply with orders for parenting or contact time, or interaction with the child “The changes update the law, address specific challenges and make the law clearer” said Ms. Whalen. “Making our province’s family laws better is part of the work we are doing to make our justice system more accessible.”
porter un vêtement de flottaison individuel et faire en sorte que ce soit obligatoire sur leur bateau; vérifier les conditions météorologiques avant de quitter le port; faire l’examen régulier de leur équipement de sécurité et de celui des autres à bord; examiner leur bateau à l’avance et se tenir aux aguets pour tout risque potentiel pendant leur travail; être prêt à réagir en cas d’urgence. On rappelle aux pêcheurs de homard du sud-ouest de la Nouvelle-Écosse de faire preuve de prudence pendant leur saison de pêche cette année. La saison débute le lundi 26 novembre dans les collectivités des côtes sud et ouest de la province. « La pêche est une profession plus sécuritaire aujourd’hui qu’il y a dix ans, mais il s’agit tout de même d’un travail dangereux et exigeant, souligne Labi Kousoulis, ministre du Travail et de l’Éducation postsecondaire. Je remercie les gens qui ont pris des mesures positives pour assurer leur propre sécurité et la sécurité des personnes à bord de leur vaisseau, et je leur souhaite à tous une saison de pêche sécuritaire et fructueuse dans le sud-ouest de la Nouvelle-Écosse. » On encourage les pêcheurs à prendre les mesures suivantes pour assurer leur sécurité : « L’industrie de la pêche compte sur de nombreux champions de la sécurité qui travaillent fort tous les jours afin d’assurer la sécurité des gens qui prennent la mer, affirme Amanda Dedrick, directrice générale de la Fisheries Safety Association of Nova Scotia. Nous avons un objectif commun qui vise à faire en sorte que les hommes et les femmes qui prennent la mer le jour d’ouverture de la pêche reviennent sains et saufs à la maison. » Cet automne, la Commission des accidents du travail et le ministère du Travail et de l’Éducation postsecondaire ont fait partenariat pour créer une campagne médiatique rappelant aux capitaines et aux équipages le rôle important des vêtements de flottaison individuels dans la sécurité des pêcheurs. C’est ce qui leur permet de retrouver leurs proches après une journée de travail. Il s’agit d’un élément d’une campagne de sensibilisation plus vaste visant à rappeler aux gens de la Nouvelle-Écosse l’importance de la sécurité au travail. Les agents de santé et de sécurité au travail ont aussi renforcé leur présence sur les quais des régions du sud-ouest et de la vallée de l’Annapolis pour promouvoir la sécurité et prendre des mesures pour appuyer la conformité. L’association Fisheries Safety Association of Nova Scotia offre des ressources et de la formation sur la sécurité à l’échelle de la province, incluant des exercices de secours d’une personne à la mer. Cette association rencontre régulièrement le Nova Scotia Fisheries Sector Council, de nombreux pêcheurs, des membres de leur famille et des représentants du secteur public en vue de collaborer à la mise en oeuvre les recommandations formulées dans le plan « Objectif : Sécurité des pêches », un plan de sécurité élaboré par et pour l’industrie de la pêche en 2015.

Kano (Nigeria): Eight people, including three soldiers, were killed in jihadist attacks on an army base and village in northeast Nigeria ahead of Monday’s Eid al-Adha festival, military sources said. Three troops and three civilians died on Saturday when fighters from the IS-aligned Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) group attacked a base in Gubio, a town 80 kilometres (50 miles) from the regional capital Maiduguri, two sources said Sunday. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThree soldiers were killed “defending the base from ISWAP terrorists who wanted to overrun it”, the first source said. “Three civilians were hit and killed in crossfire,” said the source, an officer who asked not to be identified for fear of punishment. Two soldiers and six civilians were injured, he said. The jihadists attacked the base in eight pickup trucks fitted with machine guns, leading to a two-hour long battle, said the second source, who gave the same toll. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe attack was repelled with the aid of a fighter jet which deployed two hours into the clashes, said the officer. “The terrorists were pulverised and forced to withdraw. Eleven of them were killed and three of their vehicles were seized,” he said. ISWAP ransacked the same base in May, killing three soldiers. In a separate assault on Sunday, fighters from rival jihadist faction Boko Haram killed two residents and burnt homes in an attack on the village of Ngwom, 14 km (eight miles) from Maiduguri. Gunmen in pickup trucks stormed the village in a pre-dawn attack, shooting dead two male residents before robbing women of jewelry and torching four houses, anti-Boko Haram militia leader Babakura Kolo said. “A woman had one of her ears chopped off by the insurgents as punishment for resisting being robbed,” Kolo said. The jihadists attempted to seize a nearby military base after the raid, but were rebuffed following a one-hour gunfight, Kolo and a military source said. The decade-long insurgency in northeast Nigeria has killed over 27,000 people, displaced some two million and spilt over into neighbouring countries. The jihadists are notorious for stepping up attacks during the Eid season, prompting heightened security across the region. ISWAP split from the Boko Haram faction headed by long-time leader Abubakar Shekau in 2016. Since mid-2018 ISWAP has ramped up attacks on the military, while Shekau’s group tends to hit softer civilian targets. On Saturday, several soldiers were also wounded when their vehicle hit a mine planted by ISWAP near the border with Niger, the military sources said.

Hyderabad: Claiming that a coalition government would be formed post the Lok Sabha elections with neither the NDA nor UPA getting a majority on its own, TRS working president K T Rama Rao on Thursday said his party can ensure heavy flow of funds for Telangana if it won 16 Lok Sabha seats.”If five-six regional parties or like-minded parties come together…if we can win 17 seats from Telangana, we (TRS) 16 and our friend Asaduddin Owaisi (AIMIM) will anyway win Hyderabad (Lok Sabha)…a situation of Telangana people deciding who should sit in Delhi’s chair will definitely come… Then funds would come like a flood,” he said. The total number of LS seats in Telangana is 17. Rao, who was addressing a TRS meeting at Warangal, in preparation for the coming Lok Sabha polls, said surveys conducted by national-level media organisations showed that neither NDA nor UPA was in a position to form the government on its own. Citing more such surveys, he claimed the NDA and UPA may not get more than 150 and 100 seats, respectively. The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader also alleged that the popularity graph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was waning as seen in BJP’s defeat in Rajasthan and other states in the assembly elections in December last year. Saying that the atmosphere in the country was not the same as in 2014, he said the people have understood after five years that Modi “can give good speeches, but cannot do anything that can bring a change in the lives of common people”. Modi did not agree to the requests of Telangana to give national status to an irrigation project in the state or funds to schemes though the NITI Aayog made recommendations to the effect.
Rabat – National police services caught, in coordination with the general direction for territory surveillance (DGST), four European nationals of Moroccan stock about whom international arrest warrants were issued by the Belgian and Dutch legal authorities, the Interior ministry said in a statement on Saturday.The same source said that these individuals are involved in criminal acts related to voluntary manslaughter, hold-ups against cash in transit companies, jewelry robbery at an European airport and armed assault against a Belgian hospital to help a convict escape, said the same source.These security operations enabled to arrest two other Moroccan citizens, also wanted by an international arrest warrant, the statement added, noting that the first suspect was wanted by the public prosecutor at the Tangiers first instance court for international drug trafficking and the second was wanted by the Tangiers judiciary police for forming a armed gang related to the heist, last February, of the sum of 420,000 MAD from a gas station. These operations are part of international cooperation to fight cross-border organized crime and of Moroccan security services’ efforts to apprehend wanted people by national or international arrest warrants, it said.
Video of press briefing [10mins] The injury to the mother’s birth canal was not only severely traumatic for her, but was usually fatal for the baby, leading to high mortality in Africa from a condition that was wiped out 100 years ago in Europe and the United Sates, the chief of Media Services for the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), Kristen Hetle, told a press briefing today at UN Headquarters in New York. “There’s no nice way to talk about it,” she said. “They (the mothers) leak urine or faeces, or both,” and that results in their being ostracized by their families and the rest of society. “Fistula is unpleasant to talk about, but easy to cure,” she added. The condition was usually brought on by early marriages and pregnancies, when the birth canal is immature, as well as by malnutrition, and an estimate of 800,000 sufferers in Nigeria might be low, Ms. Hetle said. Among the important doctors in the campaign are Dutch surgeon Kees Waaldijk, who has operated on 33,000 women in his 20 years in Nigeria and established seven fistula centres in Nigeria and three in Niger. Nigerian surgeon Said Ahmad has been doing corrective fistula surgery in northern Kano State for 12 years. UNFPA launched its campaign to end fistula in 30 countries in Africa, the Arab states and South Asia year before last. Besides UNFPA, campaign sponsors for the Nigerian effort are the Federal and State Government agencies, the Nigerian Red Cross, the Virgin Group’s key charity arm, Virgin Unite, created “to help out with some of the tougher challenges facing the world today, local and international,” the United Kingdom’s Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) and local non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Surgeon James Marion Sims of the United States performed the first successful fistula surgery in the world in 1849 and established the first fistula hospital in 1857 in Manhattan’s East Side, according to UNFPA. He is seen as the founder of gynaecology.
Labor and transit official trade offers for proposed compromise in BART strike AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Terry Collins, The Associated Press Posted Oct 18, 2013 4:36 am MDT OAKLAND, Calif. – Bay Area rapid transit authorities and striking workers both made offers late Friday they said had a single aim: get stationary trains that move 400,000 commuters on any given workday back on track.After a sluggish morning commute that drew region-wide gripes, BART general manager Grace Crunican said they had reached out to the mediator and were “ready to resume negotiations at any time.”Hours later, as the evening commute was underway, union president Roxanne Sanchez held a news conference with their own offer: sign off on pay, health care and pension issues, and send the remaining sticking point — work rules — to arbitration. But BART officials later said they would be willing to send the entire contract to arbitration but not the work rules alone.Thus, with no deal in place, residents were heading into a weekend without BART service, complicating vacation plans and making it tough for fans heading to events including a music show on Treasure Island and art exhibits throughout San Francisco’s Open Studios.San Francisco Bay Area rapid transit workers are on strike for the second time since July, scrambling the morning commute for hundreds of thousands of workers who were up before dawn to clog highways, swarm buses and shiver on ferry decks as they found alternative ways to the office.Six months of on-again, off-again negotiations have brought agreement on key issues such as raises, health care and pensions. But there remained a snarl Friday: a package of work rules involving when schedules are posted, whether workers can file for overtime when they’ve been out sick, and how paychecks are delivered.The labour details were meaningless to Marsha Smith, who watched the sun rise as she rode toward her office in a crowded bus. Like many commuters Friday, Smith left her house while the moon was still shone brightly to be sure to make it in on time.“I am so tired. I am so frustrated and I’m so over it,” the court records supervisor said.Getting home was no better.Lines were long for charter buses on Friday afternoon as riders usually dependent on Bay Area Rapid Transit waited to board, and traffic maps show jammed roads in San Francisco that lead to eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge. Cars were backed up for at least 10 blocks along streets downtown, waiting to cross the bridge.The Bay Area Rapid Transit system carries a ridership of 400,000 daily through tunnels under the bay and into the region’s urban core of San Francisco from four surrounding counties, relieving what would otherwise be congested bridges.In an effort to alleviate delays, many of the Bay Area’s other 27 transit systems added bus, ferry and rail service Friday. Carpools and rideshare programs were also busy, and more cyclists took the streets.But traffic was sluggish nonetheless, and lines at bridge toll plazas were backed up for miles.Passengers touching down at San Francisco International Airport were warned that trains weren’t running, and it could take twice as long to get into the city.Many simply avoided the hassle, telecommuting instead.The strike could drag through the weekend and into next work week, although both sides indicated interest in finding a solution.Discussions fell apart late Thursday after a marathon 30-hour negotiation with a federal mediator that put representatives from both sides at dueling news conferences, rumpled, unshaven and angry.But the transit agency countered that it needed to control costs to help pay for new rail cars and other improvements.Waiting for a ferry in Oakland, retail worker Mary Nelson said both sides should be able to come to an agreement.“I don’t understand why they’re holding a lot of hardworking people hostage,” she said.___Associated Press writers Martha Mendoza and Haven Daley contributed to this report.
A former Vancouver police officer wrongfully convicted of sexually abusing his children in the 1980s has filed a federal lawsuit against Clark County, alleging false imprisonment and malicious prosecution among a host of other allegations.Through his Seattle attorneys, Clyde Ray Spencer, 63, filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Tacoma on June 2, seeking unspecified damages to be determined at trial.Spencer’s lawsuit is the latest in the former officer’s long quest to clear his name. In 1985, he pleaded no contest — which is considered the same as a guilty plea — to sexually abusing his son, daughter and stepson. He was sentenced to two life terms, plus 14 years. His conviction was commuted by Gov. Gary Locke in 2004, then vacated by the Court of Appeals in 2009. Charges were officially dismissed in September. He served nearly 20 years in prison.Spencer’s case was the subject of a 2005 series, “Reversal of Fortune,” in The Columbian and has drawn nationwide media attention, including from the TV show, “20/20.”The 68-page civil complaint lists several inconsistencies with the police investigation. Those inconsistencies led to Spencer’s eventual exoneration. His two adult children now say the abuse never happened. Other discrepancies included the withholding of medical exams that showed no evidence of abuse and information that the supervising detective was having an affair with Spencer’s wife.

December 29, 2011 — Premier Imaging Ventures announced it has spun off several of its support entities to create a new venture called Lucid Radiology Solutions. The new company’s mission is to empower regional radiology groups with technology and insight that will increase the strategic value of their radiology practices.Many radiology groups find themselves having invested in IT hardware and software but still don’t have the tools to make their radiologists more effective. Consolidation of practices into larger regional groups drives the need to subspecialize, provide 24/7 coverage and increasingly read across multiple acquisition sites with different PACS and dictation systems. Lucid was formed to address these concerns.Core to the Lucid offering is the RadAssist application, which brings complex multi-site worklists into one window pane with no manual routing resources required.

Introducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner work RelatedFlight Geek of the Week: Benjamín Pérez UleciaFlight Geek of the Week: Benjamín Pérez UleciaFlight Geek of the Week – Dario Villanueva-AblanedoIntroducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner workFlight Geek of the Week – Scot CarlsonFlight Geek of the Week – Scot Carlson **1. What do you do at Skyscanner?**I’m a database developer. I design and develop strategies and code to interpret airline time tables, to optimize caching of prices, to calculate route popularities, and whatever else is required to feed the site with data.2. What kind of flight geek are you?A technical geek. I’m always looking for better ways to manipulate data efficiently in order to maximize performance when delivering results.3. What best generally describes your travel style?I usually know which country I want to go to, but am flexible about exactly when and where. I prefer to fly and then hire a car to get about – though this depends where I’m going and what I plan to do. I once drove all the way from Edinburgh to Villeneuve-sur-Lot (near Toulouse, France) and have flown as far as Melbourne, Australia.4. What’s your ideal holiday?Going somewhere quiet and relaxing, with spectacular scenery to investigate and warm sunny weather (though not too hot). I like to read so a collection of great books is also a must.5. Who’s your ideal travel companion?My wife and children.6. Do you fly with children?Two – one is ten and the other nearly eight.7. How do you decide where you want to go?Sometimes we want to visit relatives in Denmark or Australia; sometimes we want to go somewhere new, sometimes we want to return somewhere we really liked.8. How do you decide when you want to go?That depends mainly on school holidays, but also on events – for example someone’s birthday or wedding – and also on flight prices around the time we want to go.9. What annoys you most about planning holidays?Things like prices going up during school holidays, and arbitrary visa requirements that vary according to your nationality. On a trip to Turkey we needed a ‘paid for’ visa for one of us but not the other (my wife’s Danish).10. What are you doing in your job at Skyscanner to sort that?Looking for ways to make it easier and quicker to find the best prices for a trip.11. What’s your favourite thing about the Skyscanner site?The ability to drill down from a general search such as flights from country to country, to a more specific one, in order to find the most suitable flight for a given trip.12. What’s your dream feature?Voice recognition that actually works.13. Favourite websites apart from Skyscanner and why?Google – you can find just about any information you could reasonably need – though finding the right search term can be a pain.14. What’s the geekiest thing about you? Your secret geek shame?I occasionally still play Meteors on an ancient BBC B, which has outlasted many PCs.15. Worst travel experience?Arriving at Paris Charles de Gaul airport to find that the booked hire car was not available as the hire firm were “waiting for customers to return cars”.Waiting in a queue of infuriated fellow travellers for nearly 4 hours with two kids to keep entertained was not fun – not to mention wasting most of the day, and ending up with a substitute car that was so awful it was comical.Meet more Flight Search GeeksReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map
