Positive signs for Goa mining to be visible in six months CM

first_imgPanaji: Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has said that some positive signs will be visible in the next six months as far as resumption of the mining industry in the state is concerned. The five-decade-old mining industry in the coastal state came to a standstill in March last year, after the Supreme Court quashed the second renewal of 88 iron ore mining leases. Addressing an event organised by Sesa Football Academy on Friday, Sawant said, “The state government would certainly ensure that the mining industry becomes operational once again.” Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh “We are trying our level best to restart the mining industry in Goa. Since the time I have taken over as the chief minister, things are changing. You will see positive changes towards the resumption of mining industry within the next six months,” Sawant, who represents Sankhalim Assembly constituency, which is predominantly a mining belt, has held a series of meetings with the officials of mining companies earlier this week. The Goa government is also exploring the possibility of tapping the 300-odd leases not covered under the Supreme Court’s 2018 ruling.last_img read more

Ontario PC leader Tim Hudak to governing Liberals Reject Chryslers 700M ransom

TORONTO — Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak says the Ontario government should not give Chrysler hundreds of millions of dollars in what he calls “ransom money.”Hudak says Chrysler still owes the province $800 million from the government bailout it received during the recession in 2009.He accuses the auto giant of trying to blackmail the federal and Ontario governments for a reported $700 million, part of a $3.6-billion investment in Chrysler’s plants in Windsor and Brampton.Hudak says the government should not hand over the money and should instead cut taxes to make it a level playing field for all companies.Premier Kathleen Wynne says her Liberal government invested in auto companies in the past and will continue to do so, and calls Hudak “irresponsible” for saying he wouldn’t partner with the auto sector to keep jobs in Ontario.She says his approach would put hundreds of millions of jobs at risk in the province.The Conservatives say Ontario gives out $3 billion a year in what they call “corporate welfare,” and complain it goes almost exclusively to large, foreign companies such as Samsung, which Hudak noted is a direct competitor to BlackBerry.“I don’t blame the corporations for chasing the handouts. I blame the Liberal government for being in the handout business,” he said.“It seems like it’s never the small and medium-sized companies that are growing, and it seems like it’s never Canadian companies.”The federal Conservative government set aside an additional $500 million in the recent budget for its Automotive Innovation Fund, but did not release details. The fund was launched in 2008 with a commitment of $250 million over five years and renewed last year for another five years. read more

Government warns parents not to tweet answers to SATs exams because some

first_imgA spokesman said: “It is part of routine business. We have done posts on Facebook and Twitter, so they are there for people to see.  The Government has warned parents not to tweet about SATs exams because the tests are staggered over two weeks.The Department for Education has tweeted parents and teachers who have complained about aspects of the test to warn them not to spoil the questions as some children may be taking the test later than others. Though the tests are officially scheduled for this week, children who are ill on the day of a SATs exam can take the test up to five school days later.Schools can organise this themselves for pupils on a case-by-case basis. The Department for Education’s Twitter account, @educationgovuk, has been replying to tweets since Monday asking users to remove tweets which include details about questions. A post on its Facebook account read: “Please help us ensure the smooth administration of the tests by ensuring that test content is not discussed online and that all test materials remain secure until 22 May to allow children who are absent this week to take the tests next week using timetable variations.” “It’s just a polite reminder not to share those questions. “Where the team has been asked about it or it has popped up in a feed, they have occasionally reminded someone directly.”He added that the team was not “tracking people down” who were tweeting about the questions by searching for them on Twitter.Several parents continued to discuss English and Maths questions on the social media platform on Thursday afternoon. The exams are currently taken by children in Year 2 and Year 6. The Government is consulting on plans to axe the tests for seven-year-olds after this year.  One of the tweets, sent to Twitter user Matt Thrower, who complained about a maths question, said: “Hi, can you please remove the tweet referring to SATs? We’re trying to maintain the confidentiality & integrity of ongoing tests.”Mr Thrower had not tweeted the department directly, but had used the hashtag #SATS2017. center_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

UK terror plot thwarted within minutes of execution Met chief reveals

first_imgPressed on exactly how many attacks have been thwarted, she said that in “just the last few weeks”, five have been averted.”Overall I think it is well into the teens in the last couple of years, where we know people were intent on attacking and that has been stopped,” she said.”In addition, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of arrests of people who are radicalised, and are either spreading hatred or supporting terrorism, or want to carry out a terrorist attack. Police have thwarted five terror attacks in the last few weeks including some which were “very close” to being carried out, Britain’s most senior police officer has said.This year alone, the UK has been targeted by four terror attacks – three of which happened in London in busy and popular areas – which killed and injured scores of people.Speaking on Nick Ferrari’s show on LBC on Friday, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said a “very large number of plots” have been foiled over the last few years. “Some of them were very close, we would say, to an attack – very close,” she said.When asked if they were “within minutes” of being carried out, Ms Dick replied: “Yes.” “We have had a huge number of successful operations, together with the intelligence agencies and we work very closely with them and with colleagues overseas.”Quizzed on how far-progressed the thwarted attacks were, Ms Dick suggested some of them were within minutes of being executed by terrorists.

Socratous calls for investigation

first_imgFormer Labor staffer Costas Socratous has called for a formal investigation into his allegations that he was engaged in branch-stacking on behalf of MPs Theo Theophanous and Telmo Languiller. “I warned them that I would be coming out if they keep on harassing me.” Costas Socratous ex-Victorian Labor stafferHe also claims that Mr Theophanous and Mr Languiller have been running a smear campaign against him since mid-2009, calling into question his mental stability. Mr Socratous turned whistleblower last week when he alleged that Theo Theophanous masterminded extensive branch stacking in the ALP’s Albion and East Ardeer branches. Mr Socratous told Neos Kosmos, “I was given money to pay for memberships and renewals of people that I know. I would approach them to become members and tell them not to worry about memberships, that they would be fixed by another way.” Mr Socratous said that he had been “targeted” by Mr Theophanous and Mr Languiller since being sacked last year. “I have been pressured by these people,” said Mr Socratous said. “They have been harassing me in the media and everywhere.” “I warned them that I would be coming out if they keep on harassing me.” “They did not want to hear me, that is why we are where we are now,” he said. “At the beginning I asked for an apology from Theo and Telmo and instead they sent me a letter telling me that under parliamentary order not me, nor anyone that represented me could speak to the media to offend them,” said Mr Socratous. “On the other hand they let Theo loose making speeches humiliating me in parliament.” One of the accusations made under parliamentary privilege was that Mr Socratous has a gambling habit, an accusation that Mr Socratous has denied. In response to accusations that he is being groomed by the Liberal Opposition Mr Socratous said, “I went to the Liberals just for one thing, to make sure that they pressure them [the State Government] to call for an investigation.” He alleged that in 2004 and 2005 when he and Telmo Languiller faced an ALP tribunal on claims of branch-stacking, that the ALP, “covered everything up and I don’t want this to happen again.” “The party covered everything up. After that I never made any new members, I just renewed existing members” said Mr Socratous. Mr Theophanous has denied the allegations that he was the mastermind of the branch-stacking operation. He confirmed to Neos Kosmos that he was responsible for the distribution of funds to assist ALP members get re-elected, but denied any involvement in branch-stacking. “I was never in the position to know how the money was used.” “If the money allocated to Mr Languiller’s seat of Derrimut was used improperly then its Mr Socratous’ responsibility,” Mr Theophanous told Neos Kosmos. Mr Theophanous said that his lawyers have written to Mr Socratous, warning he will sue for defamation unless Mr Socratous unconditionally withdraws the branch-stacking allegations. Mr Socratous says neither he nor his lawyers have received any such letter. “My lawyer has not received anything, but I am not worried because I know what I am saying and I have the facts,” said Mr Socratous. It has been reported that Mr Languiller had gone to the police making allegations against Mr Socratous. Speaking to Neos Kosmos from outside Sunshine police station, Mr Socratous said his own inquiries to police had revealed no such allegations. Mr Socratous has also denied allegations by Mr Languiller that he sought compensation for stress. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Judge dismisses Vancouver MAX riders suit

first_imgA Multnomah County judge has thrown out a $1 million suit filed against TriMet by a 30-year-old woman who said the transit agency failed to protect her from being assaulted by an obnoxious group of teens on a Yellow Line MAX train.The highly publicized June 2008 incident in which a group teenagers attacked Staci Lynn Smith, a Vancouver woman taking her first ride on MAX, stirred widespread outrage and calls for greater transit security.The teenagers involved were prosecuted for assault or lesser crimes. While some of the teenagers’ parents said the teens were wrong to strike the woman and take her purse, they contended she wasn’t the innocent bystander portrayed in some initial media accounts.After 1 1/2 days of trial, Judge Michael McShane ruled Tuesday that Smith and her attorney had failed to present a case that could convince the jury that TriMet was negligent The judge also chastised Smith’s attorney, Victor Calzaretta, for his lack of preparation, noting Calzaretta couldn’t say when his next witnesses would show up.Two jurors interviewed after being dismissed said they weren’t inclined to award any money to Smith.Smith’s attorney had contended that TriMet had a policy of not telling passengers that police were on the way because TriMet didn’t want assailants to get away.last_img read more

Tanana Valley Fisheries Center to be opened early June

first_imgThe state plans to open its Tanana Valley Fisheries Center in Fairbanks on June 7. The visitor’s center will realize a long envisioned public interface at the new hatchery.Download AudioThe Tanana Valley Fisheries Center is the final piece at the Ruth Burnet Sport Fish Hatchery. The $46 million state hatchery ran well over budget and behind schedule due to water treatment issues. It finally began producing fish in 2012, and 4 years later the visitor’s center is nearly ready. Hatchery manager Gary George said it will give the public a window on the operation.“It has a 10,000 gallon aquarium in the center of the space, and then it has viewing windows where you can look out on the culture floor.”The sprawling high tech hatchery operation behind the glass is a stark contrast to the state’s first sport fish rearing facility: a log structure on Birch Lake.  George said the visitor’s center includes a scale model of the vintage hatchery.”Inside will have replica production tanks, hopefully very similar to what they used at Birch Hatchery from the late 50’s all the way up to early 1960’s,” George said.Public outreach and education are part of Ruth Burnet Sport Fish Hatchery’s mission, and a visitor’s center is required under its borough land lease. The Tanana Valley Fisheries Center briefly opened in 2014, but offered little to visitors.Terry Thompson is the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Sport Fish communications and outreach coordinator.”We had a large empty room,” Thompson said.Thompson has worked to develop the center, a project he says has lagged for lack of state funding. Thompson credited a $17,000 donation from the Fairbanks North Star Borough with enabling outfitting of the facility.”We constructed the old Birch Lake hatchery,” Thompson said. “We have enhanced our video selection. We will be installing some panels that would house interpretive text.”Thompson said the state recently funded a position to staff the center.“Somebody that can interact with the public, welcome them, answer questions provide limited tours through the public spaces,” Thompson said.Tanana Valley Fisheries Center is scheduled to open June 7th, and operate Tuesday through Saturday through the summer season. Thompson adds that the center will also provide sport fishing information and loaner gear.last_img read more

Veto to debt reimbursement could raise your tax bill

first_imgThe governor’s veto halvedthe amount of money the state will reimburse for school bond debt. The waythe program has long worked is that for parts of Alaska with a sizabletax-base, communities would borrow money through long-term bonds to get enoughcash for renovations that go above and beyond what you’d put in a regular schooloperating budget. One place they may look to closegaps: property tax rolls. “If you’re putting new roofs on,or replacing boilers and HVAC systems, those would be major infrastructureimprovements to extend the life of the buildings,” said Jim Anderson, ChiefFinance Officer for the Anchorage School District. One of the vetoes Governor Mike Dunleavy made, again, when he signed the operating budget on Monday was a cut worth $48,910,300 for reimbursing school bond debt. For many cities, towns and boroughs, that means taking on that cost in their own local budgets. There was a modification to thatsystem when the bottom fell out of the oil market. Because of revenueshortfalls, in 2015 the program was put on a five-year pause. Since then, whencities like Anchorage voted to take on bond debt knew they’d be shouldering thefull burden, up until 2020 when the moratorium was set to expire. Since the action does not affectASD’s operating budget, the reductions won’t be felt in classrooms, but morelikely by property owners. For the city’s tax-base, $20.5 million breaks downto about $60 more per every $100,000 of assessed value for a home, according tothe municipality’s budget office. For the average single-family home-owner,that equates to roughly $200 dollars more on his or her tax bill next spring.center_img Currently, ASD is working withthe city to figure out how Anchorage will absorb $20,538,645 it didn’t expectto be on the line for. Traditionally, the state would reimburse localgovernments for their school bond debt at somewhere between 60 and 70 percentof the construction project, according to Anderson. That means decades ago,when these bonds were approved by Anchorage voters, they would know that of thefull amount for a construction project, local taxpayers would ultimately becovering around a third of it. It was understood that under the Bond DebtReimbursement appropriation would pay for the rest.  “I would think within the municipalitythere would be a lot of discussions as to how we move forward,” Anderson said. But now, it’s unclear if thestate’s prior generosity will return when it comes to helping school districtsfinance major improvements. However, no decision has yet beenmade on whether that’s the route the city’s administration and assembly willtake.last_img read more

Beetlejuice The Warriors Get the Waxwork Records Treatment

first_imgThe soundtrack is a tad short clocking in at 37 minutes, but it’s just enough time to really have fun with it and not overstay its welcome. Since this is not a double-LP, Waxwork included a beautiful print of Erickson’s work depicting Lydia’s final moment from the film. Other than another re-release of the film, this is the perfect way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s greatest achievements. Both versions will be available on in April of this year.   The repressing of The Warriors original soundtrack, unlike Beetlejuice, is a double LP. It includes a remaster of the original soundtrack and the vinyl debut of the complete film score by Barry DeVorzon. While listening to this thing, it’s hard not thinking about that real live bunch from Coney. What started as a novel back in 1965 by Sol Yurick evolved into the ultimate cult classic. You will be transported back to the 70s and onto the streets of New York listening to both the OST and score.   One of the best vinyl releases to come out of Waxwork Records, fans have been clamoring to get their hands on this sold-out record since its announcement in November. Of course the Belafonte tracks are not the only thing special about this soundtrack. International composer (and former Oingo Boingo frontman) Danny Elfman lent his insane talents to Tim Burton back in 1988 for the soundtrack, forever solidifying his unique sound and helping give Burton’s films a unique feel.Waxwork did a wonderful job re-branding the film’s OST into something really special for fans. Artist Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative was brought on to really give the vinyl and gatefold a clean and authentic look. If you are familiar with Tim Burton’s artwork, Erickson really thrives at making us feel like this is a continuation of the directors early concept pieces. The 180 gram vinyl itself includes a sandworm on ‘Side B’ that becomes pretty hypnotic to look at while playing. As for the record’s wax job, there are two styles” “Beetlejuice Swirl”, which includes dashes of the Beet-Man’s facial and hair colors; and the simple half black-and-white vinyl matching our anti-hero’s clothing. Stay on target ‘Astral Chain’ and Other Dumb Nintendo SongsGeek Pick: Ikea Sonos Symfonisk Is A WiFi Bookshelf Speaker center_img When you hear the famous Harry Belafonte’s “Day-O” or “Jump in the Line (Shake, Shake Señora)” tracks, it is almost impossible not think of the Deetz family members and dinner guests getting down and floating around paranormal activity in one of Tim Burton’s most iconic films, Beetlejuice. Waxwork worked directly off the remaster tapes of both the original 1979 soundtrack and the film score. This 180 gram sounds like sweet perfection and has not left my turntable in days. Tracks like “In the City” by Joe Walsh and “Nowhere to Run” by Arnold McCuller sound so warm and perfect on these transfers. Accompanying the double LP is gorgeous artwork on and inside the gatefold from Marvel Comics artist Dave Rapoza. The record’s wax job comes in “Warriors” red and brown, where as the “Boppers” variant comes in purple. It’s now available on just released from Waxwork this month is Richard Einhorn’s famous score from The Prowler. This 1981 cult classic kicks off Waxworks 2019 release list and it looks just as stunning as it sounds. The Prowler was one of America’s first slasher films with make-up effects by Tom Savini. The vinyl itself screams Savini with red splats on army green, which mimics the films icon.The gatefold artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin is easily the coolest we have ever seen this slasher ever depicted. The master recordings to this OST were originally believed to be lost for good. Luckily, Waxwork found and restored the tapes with Einhorn’s help and fans get to reap the benefit right now.More on Record Sales See No Signs of Slowing in 201915 Cool Tech Gifts for Music LoversPandora Launches Voice-Enabled Smart Assistant for Easier Streaminglast_img read more

Dead Sea drilling research project portends ominous future for Middle East

first_imgSalt buildup on the shores of the Dead Sea. Image: Ian and Wendy Sewell/Wikipedia © 2011 Jordan and Israel consider Red Sea canal ( — A team of researchers drilling in the center of the Dead Sea have found that approximately 120,000 years ago, the area became so dry the Sea dried up completely, or nearly so, and worse, it likely occurred over a lengthy period of time. Today the history rich sea, the lowest in the world, is shrinking too, but unlike back then, this time it’s due to human’s siphoning off water from the rivers that feed it leading to a precipitous drop that has reduced the depth of the water by some 10 meters since the mid nineties. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only.center_img Explore further Citation: Dead Sea drilling research project portends ominous future for Middle East (2011, December 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from The Dead Sea Deep Drilling Project, as its been called, involved boring holes in two locations into the sea floor over four months between late 2010 and early 2011 and cost US $2.6 million, and was funded by the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program with additional contributions from other organizations and countries. Over the course of the drilling, the team, managed to pull up a 400 meter length of sediment from beneath the sea floor, giving the researchers a peak 200,000 years into the past. But it was the part of the sample that represented a time around 120,000 that really intrigued them, as there they found rocky pebbles similar to those found currently on the shore line. This meant that the sea had dried to the point where it may have had no water in it at all. And beneath the pebbles was a layer of salt about 45 meters thick, which is what researchers calculate, would occur if all the water in the sea were removed today. Thus, it appears that the Dead Sea was for a time, nothing more than a very large salt flats.The idea that the Dead Sea could go dry is a very scary thing for those in the Middle East, especially for those who follow global warming theories and politics. While the water from the Dead Sea itself isn’t used for much of anything except swimming, the rivers that run into it are critical to the survival of millions of people in the area, and controlling those rivers is rife with controversy which has in the past led to wars, as the Dead Sea sits right between Israel and Jordan.With many global warming models predicting a more arid Middle East, the specter of a dried up Dead Sea could possibly send the area into a period of turmoil dwarfing past conflicts, which would of course cause ripples all across the globe, leading to a very unstable future for virtually everyone.last_img read more

Arizona will play hard; they haven’t quit on Ken Whisenhunt yet, but the lack of a quarterback is just killing them. I look for Lindley to improve some and a heavy dose of Beanie Wells. But this game comes down to who makes more mistakes not who makes more big plays, and that unfortunately is the Cardinals.Final Score: Jets 20, Cardinals 17 Katy HartleySo Lindley is starting and the Cards have lost their center… Looks to be another underwhelming performance by the offense… The defense might be able to keep it close, but typically the Cards struggle on the East coast – I think Jets have the edge with home field advantage.Final Score: Jets 24, Cardinals 17 0 Comments   Share   Dave BurnsTwo teams who win about as often as I hit the gym meet up on Sunday. Hard to pick a winner in this bunch. The Jets’ issues have been magnified because they’re the Jets, but they have the better QB, they’re at home, it’s a long trip for a Cardinals team that is riding a two month losing streak, and the Jets have the benefit of extra time to prepare. As bad as they are, there are more reasons to pick the Jets than the Cards.Final Score: Jets 20, Cardinals 17 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Adam GreenCardinals/Jets is the type of matchup dreams are made of.Horrible, horrible dreams.The Jets might be the only team in the NFL with a worse quarterback situation than the Cardinals, though any difference is pretty negligible. Mark Sanchez isn’t great, but he has some ability — we can’t for sure say the same for Ryan Lindley.This game will not be pretty.Final Score: Jets 20, Cardinals 13 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Carter NackeSunday is going to be ugly. The Jets have been struggling almost as bad as the Cardinals, and Sunday is going to be a toss-up. However, I’m predicting the upset. Cards D is going to come up big and a last-second Feely FG will seal the.Final Score: Cardinals 16, Jets 13 The Arizona Cardinals are 4-7. The New York Jets are 4-7.Someone has to win — or, rather, someone has to not-lose. Can the Cardinals end their losing streak in the Big Apple? The experts from ArizonaSports620 tell you what they think.Share your own prediction with a comment. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Vince MarottaThey’re still playing this game? OK, just kidding. Two 4-7 teams headed in the wrong direction, and there’s some speculation that the losing coach will also lose their job. Unlike the Jets, the Cardinals have been mostly competitive during their seven-game losing streak. Rex Ryan’s team has been blown out by an average of 24 points in their last three losses — including the Thanksgiving night debacle at the hands of the Patriots. Seriously, I laughed about Mark Sanchez’s butt sack and fumble for about 30 solid minutes. But going on the road to the East coast to play an early game is never easy, especially when you’re facing a team that’s a little more rested. If the Jets can overcome their heavy hearts in the wake of Fireman Ed stepping down as the most annoying fan, I mean, the unofficial team mascot, they’ll win.Final Score: Jets 20, Cardinals 17 James MelloThe Cardinals are better in every phase of the game at this point in the season. There are very few teams the Cardinals could say that about offensively, but the Jets are one of them. Offensively the Cards still have more talent because of a lack of receiving threats for the Jets. The Cardinals’ main goal offensively will be to just not lose the game. The defense of the Cards will be able to create problems early and often against the Jets. If they were able to intercept Matt Ryan five times, Mark Sanchez should be no issue. Arizona is better on special teams as well, which was shown by the consistent blunders on Thanksgiving by the Jets against New England. Low scoring game but Arizona wins.Final Score: Cardinals 14, Jets 10 Charlie FeinermanFinally, the Cardinals will end the losing streak. Ryan Lindley has a big game, showing his full potential with at least 250 yards, 3 touchdown passes and one interception. The Jets (unless it becomes Tebow Time) will gain a total of 150 yards against the Cardinals defense. Patrick Peterson finally get a punt return touchdown.Final Score: Cardinals 24, Jets 3 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Dave DulbergThe Jets are 2-4 at home this season, with their four losses coming by an average of 22.7 points per game. The Cardinals are the first NFL team in history to a season 4-0 only to lose their next seven games. The scheduling gods have made it so that one of those awful statistics has to come to a screeching halt on Sunday. Unfortunately for Cardinals fans, brace yourself for loss No. 8. When Mark Sanchez is the more competent starting quarterback, you know you’re in for a long day. Ryan Lindley won’t throw four INTs this week, but he’ll turn the ball over just enough to keep Arizona from competing late.Final Score: Jets 24, Cardinals 14last_img read more
