In another shocking case of rape similar to the Kathua incident, the mutilated body of a girl aged about 11 with 86 marks of injuries was found in the Bhestan locality of Surat. A post-mortem examination confirmed repeated sexual assault. Considering the gruesome nature of the case, the Crime Branch of the Surat police has been asked to take over the investigation. Not yet identifiedSatish Sharma, Commissioner of Police, Surat, said the girl, who probably belonged to the Odiya or Bengali community, was killed and the body dumped outside the city. The victim was yet to be identified. Surat is a hub of migrants from across the country, and large numbers of them come from Odisha and West Bengal to work in textiles factories and construction sites. “The girl is believed to have been murdered on April 5 and the body was recovered the next day,” another police official said. The post-mortem examination revealed sexual assault, “strangulation and smothering”, with 86 signs of minor injuries, Mr. Sharma said.Ganesh Govekar, a doctor at the Civil Hospital in the city, where the post-mortem was conducted, said, “Going by the nature of the injuries, they seem to have been caused over a period ranging from one week to one day prior to the recovery of the body, suggesting that the girl might have been held captive, tortured and possibly raped.”The Police Commissioner appealed to people to come forward and help the police establish the identity of the girl. A ₹20,000 cash reward has been announced.“To identify the deceased, we have taken the help of print and social media, such as WhatsApp, to spread her pictures with the hope that someone who knows her will identify her,” said K.B. Jhala, inspector at the Pandesara police station.Posters of victimThe Surat police have pasted 1,200 posters of her photo across the city and on trains. “In order to identify the girl, her details were matched with those of 8,000 lost children in the city,” Mr. Jhala said. The police have registered a case under Sections 302 (murder) and 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code and provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

zoom If dry bulk ship-owners collectively removed half of all capesize ships over 12 years old, equating to around 20 million dwt of capacity, it would enable earnings to return to profitability by 2018, according to the latest estimates from Drewry.The shipping consultancy believes that dry bulk shipping is facing a perfect storm and requires drastic supply side measures if the industry is to return on course to profitability in the medium term.If they were to remove all old capsize vessels the recovery would occur even sooner.According to Drewry, this could be achieved through a combination of scrapping and temporary vessel idling. While the proposed adjustments may seem harsh, there is now a need for industrywide action otherwise the market will remain loss making for the foreseeable future. Time for drastic supply side measures “The only solution is for shipowners to remove older capesize vessels from the fleet until the market recovers, otherwise the industry faces many more years of losses,” said Rahul Sharan, lead analyst for dry bulk shipping at Drewry.“Any market correction resulting from inevitable insolvencies will not alone be sufficient to correct supply/demand imbalances as vessels will simply be recycled back into the fleet.”The economic slowdown in China continues to negatively impact demand for iron ore and coal shipments while the fleet carries on rising. This week the Baltic Dry Index reached an all-time low of 345 points and Drewry expects earnings to deteriorate further through 2016 as more vessels are fixed at rates well below operating costs.Indian coal import demand is expected to wane as domestic extraction ramps up and ports remain congested. Meanwhile, vessel capacity growth continues to outstrip demand and the orderbook represents a threatening 16% of the global fleet. These factors have caused Drewry to further downgrade its outlook for the sector.“In the absence of radical action, we expect dry bulk shipping freight rates to deteriorate further through the course of the year and to remain weak in 2017. Any recovery will be pushed out further with little near term prospect of a return to profitability,” added Sharan.
Fishermen, their families, and communities are invited to help form the Safe at Sea Alliance and develop a Fishing Safety Action Plan to reduce fatalities and improve fishing safety. About 30 members of the fishing industry were on hand today, March 6, in Halifax, to talk about what needs to be done to improve fishing safety in Nova Scotia. “We’ve certainly come a long way in the industry and there has been a shift in the safety culture over the past couple of years,” said Leonard LeBlanc, of Cheticamp and a member of the Gulf Nova Scotia Fishermen’s Coalition. “But more needs to be done. We need to take things a step further, be more proactive as an industry, and that’s what this new approach is all about.” The fishing industry contributes more than $1 billion to the Nova Scotia economy annually. It is also one of the most dangerous industries. In 2013, there were eight fishing fatalities in Nova Scotia. Just this week a fisherman died in a tragic fishing accident off the coast of Port Mouton. “Fishing is a proud, vibrant industry at the very core of our heritage, but it’s also one of the most dangerous jobs in the province,” said Kelly Regan, Minister of Labour and Advanced Education. “This industry has been touched too deeply by tragedy, and it doesn’t have to be this way. Together, we can help improve safety across the industry.” Fishing safety is a key part of the province’s Workplace Safety Strategy, and was also recently identified as a key pillar of the province’s new Commercial Fishing Strategy. “The number of fatalities and injuries in the fishing industry is unacceptable and must be addressed,” said Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell. “The Fishing Safety Action Plan will be a key contribution to the safety and training part of the Commercial Fisheries Strategy. We are pleased to be part of this important initiative.” “Too many people are dying at work in Nova Scotia’s fishing sector and we need to change that,” says Stuart MacLean, CEO, Workers’ Compensation Board of Nova Scotia. “But in order for there to be real change, it has to be led by the fishing industry. That’s why we’re reaching out to fishermen, their families, and communities. We’re asking them to help drive this change.” Once the Fishing Safety Action Plan is developed provincial and federal government and industry association partners will join the Safe at Sea Alliance to help move the plan forward and implement recommendations.

The Canadian Press VICTORIA — All 17 fish farms in British Columbia’s Broughton Archipelago will either be closed or moved in an effort to create a migration path for wild salmon.The agreement between First Nations, the federal and provincial governments, and fish farm companies Marine Harvest Canada and Cermaq Canada was announced today.Concerns have been raised since the farms were established in the area that salmon in net pens cause harm to the environment and pass on disease to migrating wild salmon.Part of the agreement also mean the creation of a First Nations monitoring and inspection program to oversee the farms that move out of the archipelago.The plan includes the implementation of new technologies to address risks on the farms, such as sea lice, and steps to restore wild salmon habitat in the Broughton Archipelago, a collection of islands off northeastern Vancouver Island.

Texas landowner, TransCanada tussle in court over whether tar sands are the same as crude oil HOUSTON – A Texas landowner is attempting get a county judge to stop construction of a TransCanada Corp. pipeline across his property until the court decides whether the pipe will be carrying crude oil or something fundamentally different.Nacogdoches County Court-at-Law Judge Jack Sinz will hear arguments Wednesday.Landowner Michael Bishop wants all pipeline work on his 20-acre property to stop until the judge rules on whether the pipeline will be actually carrying crude oil.Bishop says the company lied and that tar sands oil is not crude. Calgary-based TransCanada (TSX:TRP) insists it is.The controversial Keystone XL pipeline is meant to transport material from Alberta’s oilsands to Texas refineries.The oilsands’ tarry bitumen — sometimes called tar sands — is usually mixed with a diluent that softens it and makes it easier to flow through pipelines as its transported to refineries.Environmentalists and other critics of the oilsands argue that diluted bitumen is more corrosive than conventional crude but the oilsands industry counters that the modern pipeline technology will protect the environment from spills.The section of the pipeline that would cross the international border has not been approved. A shorter portion from Oklahoma to Texas is under construction.

Simon HeadCredit:Thierry Monasse A spokesman for the Duke said: “His Royal Highness feels incredibly lucky to have benefited from Miguel’s advice and support over the last decade.”He has been an outstanding press secretary and private secretary and has been central to the decisions that have guided the establishment of the Duke’s office. Miguel Head is leaving his role as Private Secretary to the Duke of Cambridge in JulyCredit:Chris Jackson /Getty The Duke has also taken on increasingly challenging overseas tours, including a Brexit “charm offensive” on behalf of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to underline cultural and historic ties with the continent. The arrival of Mr Case is a clear signal about the Duke’s intentions for his future work as a full-time Royal, which will see him increasingly supporting the Queen and meeting leaders from around the world in his official capacity.After a period of handover, he will take over as Private Secretary after the Duke’s tour to Israel, Jordan and the Occupied Palestinian Territories in the summer.Mr Head, who has overseen the recruitment process, is leaving after ten years to pursue a career outside the Royal Household, having stayed in position to support the Duke and Duchess and their children as they in to full-time life in London. Mr Case, who takes up his new role in July, is currently Director General Northern Ireland and Ireland in the Department for Exiting the EU.Aged 39 and with a PhD in political history, his remarkable career has seen him work as director of strategy for GCHQ, director of the implementation group at the Cabinet Office and as Principal Private Secretary to David Cameron and Theresa May.Described by those who have worked with him as master navigator, he has been hailed as a “very smart appointment” by sources who have seen him discreetly negotiate some of the most difficult issues of the day.

Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. “He has also been a valued advisor during an important period in His Royal Highness’s life. He wishes Miguel all the very best for the future.”Mr Case joins the Kensington Palace team not long after Catherine Quinn, who became the Duchess’ Private Secretary fresh from her role as chief operating officer at Oxford University’s Said Business School, with previous roles in leadership positions at Middle Temple and the Wellcome Trust.Since October, the Duchess has spoken on several serious issues, including calling a symposium on supporting children in their early years, pledging to champion nurses and putting her own history of art degree to good use by curating a “patron’s trail” at the National Portrait Gallery.Prince Harry has his own private secretary working closely with the Duke’s, while Meghan Markle has been given an assistant private secretary to help her as she marries into the Kensington Palace team. After stepping up to duty as a full-time Royal, the Duke of Cambridge has vowed to be on hand to support the Queen, charm Europe at the request of government and take on the diplomatic minefield of an official visit to Israel.Today, he gave the the clearest sign yet of his approach to the serious business of being second-in-line to the throne, appointing one of Britain’s leading civil servants as his private secretary.The Duke has welcomed Simon Case, currently tasked with trying to solve the border issue in Northern Ireland and Ireland during Brexit discussions, to the Royal Household.Mr Case will replace Miguel Head, the Duke’s private secretary who has served in the household for ten years.The Duke paid warm tribute to Mr Head yesterday, saying he felt “incredibly lucky to have benefited from Miguel’s advice and support over the last decade”.His tenure, first as press secretary and then as private secretary, has seen Mr Head guide the Duke from his time as a trainee RAF pilot dating girlfriend Kate Middleton, through his high-profile wedding, fatherhood and stepping down from his job as a search and rescue pilot to become a full-time Royal.

Lawmakers want to crack down on surprise phone, internet bills. Getty Images Have you been surprised by the charges on your monthly phone or internet bills? Lawmakers want to get rid of those hidden fees.Sen. Edward Markey, a Democrat from Massachusetts, and Rep. Anna Eshoo, a Democrat from California, last week introduced the Truth-in-Billing, Remedies and User Empowerment over Fees (‘TRUE Fees’) Act. If passed, the bill will require phone, cable and internet companies to include all charges in the prices they advertise for services as well as provide consumers solutions when they’re wrongfully charged.”For too long customers have been surprised each month to find that their cable, phone and internet bills are much higher than the advertised price. The TRUE Fees Act would put an end to these advertising practices that only confuse consumers about the true costs,” Markey said in a release. “If phone, cable and internet companies won’t be fully transparent with consumers, then Congress should act.”Hidden phone and internet fees aren’t rare experiences for consumers. AT&T in June quietly doubled its administrative fee from 76 cents to $1.99, which could help the company rake in $800 million more in revenue. These “below the line” charges aren’t considered to be part of the regular service fee customers pay each month. Instead, they’re generally listed with local and state taxes at the bottom of a bill, though the fees aren’t required by the government.This bill would also allow customers to end their contract early without a penalty if the provider increases prices, prevent providers from increasing equipment fees unless the equipment is improved, and prohibit forced arbitration clauses for wrongful billing errors. Lawmakers who backed the bill include House Reps. Mark Takano, Eleanor Norton, Tim Ryan, Earl Blumenauer, Jamie Raskin, Joe Courtney, Donald Beyer, Janice Schakowsky and Mike Thompson, along with Sens. Richard Blumenthal, Amy Klobuchar, Ben Cardin, Elizabeth Warren, Ron Wyden and Tina Smith. Share your voice Tags Politics Mobile 2 Comments

The relationship between literature and cinema is mutually sustaining, say authors and filmmakers, who are sure the search for new and good content will lead to books.It is a win-win situation where the authors and publishers who are struggling to get a wider reach with their stories, get a chance to pitch stories to film studios as potential film story material.”On the other hand, content creators are always struggling with new and good content for their projects, whether it is a film or web series. Word To Screen Market is bridging that gap. Also, publishers get an acquisition cost and the book gets huge mileage if a film is made out of it,” said filmmaker Kiran Rao. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAuthor Anita Nair cannot but agree. “With the growing digital platform that demands good stories and content, the possibility of adaptation of books into audio-visual story – be it film or web series – is increasing. I see it as a mutually sustaining relationship between authors, publishers and filmmakers.”Nair feels when a story is selected from the framework of a book as opposed to a story of a film for scripting, the scriptwriter gets a lot more details of the world of the story. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”The picture is much clearer… already in the story,” said the writer of books like ‘The Better Man’, ‘Ladies Coupe’, ‘Mistress’, ‘Lesson in Forgetting Idris’ and ‘Cut Like Wound’.Filmmaker Kabir Khan, too, agrees. “We are almost getting a ready story that needs to be just scripted if (the story) has the potential to make a film. And a story cannot be limited to a region… If it has a universal appeal, it will travel,” he said.However, he also pointed out the challenges. “Since it is a change of medium, an adaptation of a book into a film comes with a challenge. Two storytellers are involved in the process – one who wrote the book and the one who is translating that into a film.”The challenge is to maintain that essence of the story in the film,” said the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director.Nair stressed that while there is an “intangible element” that intrigues a filmmaker to make a film, an “artistic integrity” needs to be maintained.”If you lose the essence of the story in the film, that is tragic for the author, really,” she added.While books offer good stories to filmmakers, the process of translating it to film is not as simple as it sounds. Said Rucha Pathak, the Chief Creative Officer of Fox Star Studios: “Turning a book into a script is really time-consuming and, as a studio, we really invest in writing.The process is not as easy as it looks just because we are getting a ready story.”Citing an example, Pathak said: “We took four years to write the script of Kizie Aur Manny, the Hindi remake of The Fault In Our Stars to get it right. But I must say that an initiative like Word toScreen Market is really bringing the world of cinema and literature together, and I am enjoying how it’s growing with each passing year.”Does the dazzle of cinema overpower the world of literature in such collaborations?Emphasising on the aspect of mutual respect, Nair said: “Since the idea is to complement each other in the collaboration, I think respect for the book is important.””The filmmaker and actors should aim to make the best possible film out of the book rather than overpowering the book with commerce and marketing. If the story gets respect, the author gets her due,” he added.
Cancún, Q.R. — Given the large number of complaints by the public against inspectors of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport (Sintra), the state says that as of now, all public personnel must wear an identification badge.Rafael del Pozo Dergal, head of the Secretariat of the State Comptroller, reported that the identification will display the worker’s photograph, name, dependence where he collaborates and a QR code in which it can be validated from the Tak application.He says that it is mandatory that all public servants wear their identification badge while on duty and most importantly, do not overstep with what is authorized.He announced the first two dependencies of the State Government that has its inspectors registered are those of the Secretariat of Infrastructure and Transport (Sintra) and the Commission of Protection Against Sanitary Risks.The move for Sintra workers comes after years of public complaints regarding corruption against motorists.He said that gradually, the rest of the State Government agencies will be added to the system.Citizens can verify the validity of the identification badges in the Tak Pool application, which is available for any smartphone with Android and IOS operating system or by calling their 24/7 help line at 01 800 84 977 84.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)
From right, Luis Jiménez, Aurora Picado and son Sebastian. Jiménez says he has learned to speak Mexican Spanish. Tania Lara Esmit Pérez is an engineer who was relocated from HewlettPackard in Costa Rica to the company’s office in Austin, Texas, in 2010. He misses the warm people, the beaches and the exuberant vegetation of his native country. Spanish-language radio host Mario Hurley remembers the year 2004 as “the toughest in my life” because he did not speak English when he moved to New Jersey. AUSTIN, Texas – There is always surprise when an immigrant in the United States says he or she is from Costa Rica. Sometimes the next question is, “So where in Mexico is Costa Rica?” or “Is Costa Rica an island?” But often, people would just say: “And what are you doing here if Costa Rica is such a beautiful country!”Costa Ricans increasingly follow job opportunities and family ties in the U.S. but they still remain one of the smallest Latino immigrant groups in this country. According to the U.S. Census, roughly 80,000 Costa Ricans live in the U.S., compared to more than 11 million Mexicans, the largest immigrant group in this country. Other studies indicate the actual number of Ticos in the U.S. could be almost twice the U.S. Census number.In Texas, where 60 percent of all immigrants come from Mexico, Costa Ricans blend with the Mexican culture while keeping their own traditions alive. Using social media and spreading the word through Spanish-language media in Texas, Costa Ricans organize social events to gather and preserve their cultural ties. They celebrate Mother’s Day on Aug. 15 instead of the U.S. tradition in May. They commemorate Costa Rica’s Independence Day with the traditional “Desfile de Faroles” (Lantern Parade) on Sept. 15, and they host viewing parties of soccer matches with traditional foods. After 13 years in the U.S., Jiménez not only learned to speak English, but also to speak as a Mexican. He now avoids words like “coger” (grab) because of its sexual meaning in Mexico, and he enjoys spicy Mexican food.Esmit Pérez is an engineer who was relocated from HewlettPackard in Costa Rica to the company’s office in Austin in 2010. He says he still misses the warm people, the beaches and the exuberant vegetation of his native country. “But my plans to move back are postponed every year,” he said. “You start melting with society here and then you become a Texan.”Jiménez and his family plan every year to move back to Costa Rica, but they always end up staying in Gringolandia.Said Jiménez: “This country ends up stealing your heart.” Facebook Comments No related posts. Tania Lara Tania Lara “We share tips to find yucca in Austin and when someone travels to Costa Rica, she gets requests to bring back staple foods like Salsa Lizano, the famous Costa Rican condiment, and tuna cans,” said Jackie Obando, who moved from San José to Texas in 2005.Through social media, immigrants also post job opportunities or organize fundraising events for fellow Ticos in need.In 2005, Luis Jiménez reached out Spanish-language media to offer housing to Costa Rican immigrants displaced by Hurricane Katrina in the coasts of East Texas and Louisiana. As a result of this campaign, 10 displaced families received temporary housing with fellow Ticos in Austin.Jiménez and his family moved to Austin in 2000 after a long period of unemployment in Costa Rica. Finding a new job in Costa Rica was challenging for him because he was over 40, he said. The accountant had to learn the trade of a construction worker when he came to Texas, until he started his own business as a distributor of imported forged doors from Mexico. Costa Rican immigrant and Spanish-language radio host Mario Hurley remembers the year 2004 as “the toughest in my life” because he did not speak English when he moved to New Jersey, and his family faced economic hardships the first year. Nine years later, he is host of Mega 107.5 in Dallas and father of a 2year-old Texan. He no longer longs to move back to Costa Rica, except “maybe when I retire at age 60.”To stay connected with his home country, Hurley manages the Facebook group Pura Vida Dallas, with 273 members. Group members often get together to watch Costa Rica’s soccer matches while enjoying traditional dishes including gallo pinto, arroz con pollo, and plátano maduro.“I saw that people from other countries were organizing events and I wanted to do something similar because I missed the humor, music and food of my people,” he said. Hurley moved to the U.S. when his mother married a U.S. citizen, and from his experience most Ticos came to Texas because they married someone from the U.S.In the Texas capital of Austin, more than 50 Costa Rican women belong to the Facebook group Ticas en Austin.

(BDI) an NGO has called for the setting up of a gender unit in the Presidency to assist prompt resolution of issues arising from discrimination and bias against women Mrs Edema Irom President of the group made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday while reacting to a recent alleged attack on a pregnant woman by three police officers in Lagos Reports said the officers attached to the Satellite Police Division on July 19 allegedly stripped a pregnant woman Mrs Chika Elekawachi naked after accusing her of resisting arrest Elekawachi was allegedly assaulted before being dragged to the police station Irom said the officers had attacked the woman who was over eight months pregnant and as a result she lost her baby who was born premature following the attack “The last report I received is that the woman after hearing her baby died while in the incubator has been crying and begging to be taken to see her child “It is totally wrong and unacceptable for anyone to mistreat an eight-month pregnant woman whatever her offence because she is with child “This is the kind of society we live in today in Africa where men do things like this and go free; it is not right I suggest that a gender desk be set up in the Presidency to address this kind of issue “When something like this happens and there is swift and prompt reaction from the top then such occurrences will begin to reduce drastically” Irom said She also suggested that such a structure be replicated at the government level government departments and corporate organisations “The police who should be our friends are now turning into our enemies hence what we are doing on our part is to assess the situation then take all the necessary measures to address the problem” she

and the officers tried and sanctioned according to orderly room trial rules (NAN) The new boss of the European Commission has sparked criticism with plans to raid the European Union’s science budget to fodder a new investment fund aimed at boosting Europe’s sluggish economy and creating new jobs In his first big move after about 3 weeks in office Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has proposed diverting 27 billion from Horizon 2020 the bloc’s 70 billion 7-year research funding program into a new "Investment Plan for Europe” Combined with money from the Connecting Europe Facility which funds broadband and transport projects from the European Investment Bank and from unspecified “budget margins” the fund would put 21 billion on the table Juncker says this could attract 15 times that amount from industry and national governments to reach 315 billion in the next 3 years Some research organizations aren’t convinced that the 27 billion cut from Horizon 2020 will eventually benefit research as Juncker claimed yesterday when he presented the plan to the European Parliament in Strasbourg France "Horizon 2020 is not a lemon Stop squeezing it" said the League of European Research Universities (LERU) in a statement issued yesterday Money from the new investment pot could go to any EU country and to any project that matches the plan’s priorities The commission has issued few details but says it wants to focus broadly on broadband and energy networks transport infrastructure education research and innovation as well as renewable energy and energy efficiency As an example the commission says the money could help speed up the construction of a “laser-based research infrastructure” "I know some of you are worried about the impact on the research and infrastructure allocations You fear that redirecting money from the Horizon 2020 and Connecting Europe budget lines will mean that money is lost" Juncker told the Parliament yesterday "But this is not the case Every euro from these programs paid into the fund creates 15 euros for those very same research and infrastructure projects We are not just moving money around we are maximizing its input" But some say that plan is too optimistic “What can you do with 21 billion in an economy that amounts to over 12 trillion or more [Juncker]’s trying to do a miracle with very little” says Guntram Wolff director of the economics think tank Bruegel in Brussels Wolff doesn’t believe national and private funds will multiply the commission’s 21 billion by a factor of 15 "Maybe 5 if we’re lucky” he says The plan is likely to bolster projects that would have happened anyway in this short time frame enabling investors to make higher profits instead of attracting actual new investment Wolff says To finance the scheme it would be wiser to tap into other parts of the EU budget such as funds for agriculture or regional development instead of Horizon 2020 he adds LERU says the new fund’s money is likely to go to “quick win projects that may please politicians and citizens but that will not invest in Europe’s future” LERU’s secretary-general Kurt Deketelaere called the plan a “fairytale diversion” that would squeeze the Union’s research budget "Let’s stick with the Horizon 2020 budget which we all welcomed in 2012" he said It is still unclear which parts of the Horizon 2020 budget would suffer “None of [Horizon’s] money [for that period] has been committed at this stage so nobody can claim to be losing out” says a commission representative “On the contrary everyone should mobilize to put forward really good projects” Public bodies companies or nongovernmental organizations will be able to submit proposals which will be vetted by an “investment committee” the representative says Juncker hopes to get the plan off the ground by mid-2015—but he will first have to win the approval of the Parliament and member states which have to agree on the details of the future regulationThe sculptor of Mount Rushmore Gutzon Borglum with a model of the four presidents that included arms and handsBill Groethe The sculptor of Mount Rushmore Gutzon Borglum with a model
