NGT raps Delhi pollution control panel over air quality

first_imgNew Delhi: The National Green Tribunal has rapped the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) over its failure to control air pollution in the national capital, saying it was avoiding its duties. A bench, headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel, directed the Delhi chief secretary to look into the matter and take remedial measures about proper manning and effective functioning of the DPCC. “The tribunal may have to consider whether a statutory authority which is repeatedly failing to perform its duties should continue in position as one of the reasons which is contributing to unabated pollution in Delhi resulting in large scale deaths and diseases is the failure of statutory authorities to perform their duties. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder “In absence of responsiveness of the statutory authorities who have to carry out the orders of this tribunal, mere passing of paper orders will not advance the purpose for which this tribunal has been constituted under the law,” the bench said. It said that no officer or authority can be allowed to defeat law in the manner it is being done on regular basis by the DPCC. The tribunal said that in such a situation, option may also have to be explored for action under Section 18(2) of the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974, whereby the central government may handover the functions of defiant DPCC to the Central Pollution Control Board. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings “Before further action, we direct the Chief Secretary, Delhi to look into the matter and take remedial measures about proper manning and effective functioning of the DPCC. The DPCC may file a proper affidavit of the action taken in the matter before the next date,” the bench said. The tribunal was hearing a plea filed by city resident Rajesh Kumar alleging air pollution by a brake lining factory near Chajju Gate, Babarpur here. The NGT had earlier directed DPCC to furnish a factual and action taken report. “A report has been received vide e-mail dated March 29 to the effect that East Delhi Municipal Corporation has sealed the premises and the SHO (Welcome) will be keeping strict vigil. “The report does not show any steps for prosecution or recovery of compensation for damage to the environment on ‘Polluter Pays principle’,” the tribunal noted.last_img read more

Austrian FM Asks Turkish Anti-coup Demonstrators to Leave His Country

Casablanca – Austrian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Integration, Sebastian Kurz, has asked the Turkish community to leave Austria if they want to demonstrate in support of  the Turkish Recep Tayyip Erdo?an against the failed military coup.According to German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung, referenced in Al Jazeera, the Austrian government has summoned the Turkish ambassador to Vienna today to discuss the events and demonstrations organized by the pro-Erdo?an protestors in Austria.The minister stated in a television interview that the demonstrations in Austria in favor of the legitimate government are not at all worthwhile. He added that those who want to involve themselves in the internal affairs of Turkey are free to leave the country. Sebastian Kurz, who has been Austria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Integration since 2013, has distinguished himself as an ardent opponent of the security measures and the campaign of arrests of the coup plotters led by the Turkish government and Turkish Intelligence Services.Kurz has called upon the European leaders to stand firm against Turkey. He addressed a statement to the Turkish president claiming that they “will not allow a dictator state to emerge and grow in Turkey.”  The reaction of the Turkish government, Kurz continues, “is exaggerated and abusive … especially with respect  to reinstating the death penalty.”The same minister made a multiple-day visit to Egypt in May 2015 and met with the Egyptian president Abdelfattah Al-Sisi, who rose to power as a result of a coup against his predecessor, Mursi, who was sentenced to death by an Egyptian court.Edited by Elisabeth Myers read more

Morocco ‘Independent’ in Gulf Crisis, ‘Will Not Give Up’ on Allies:…

Rabat – Moroccan member of the House of Representatives Abdelatif Ouahbi has said that Morocco is not taking sides in the current crisis between the member states of the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC).In an opinion article sent to Morocco World News, the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM) MP writes that the Kingdom’s decision to send food supply to Qatar following the embargo imposed on it by other Gulf countries “should not be interpreted as taking sides with this or that party.”“Morocco affirmed its support for the Gulf’s security, but at the same time it did not cut ties with Qatar,” writes Ouahbi. “Everybody knew that Morocco is independent its decisions.” The MP goes on to say that Morocco’s policy is based on constantly striving to achieve international peace and security, adding that at the same time Morocco “will not give up on its allies and friends when there are disagreements between them.”“This position does not mean siding with or against anyone. It is for everybody’s benefit,” explains Ouahbi.Morocco’s choice for non-alignment in the Gulf crisis, Ouahbi suggests, is a wise decision taken by King Mohammed VI.He states that not taking sides in such a crisis is in the interest of Arab countries, explaining that the Kingdom’s position serves all at a time where conflicts and tensions between Arab states will expose them to more dangers and manipulations by regional and international powers.Earlier in June, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain, along with other allies from the Arab world and elsewhere, announced they would cut ties with Qatar for allegedly supporting terrorism and undermining the security of Gulf states.Qatar rejected the accusations which it called “unfounded.” Morocco abstained from joining in the general campaign against Qatar.King Mohammed VI, who leads the Kingdom’s diplomacy, has sent foreign minister Nasser Bourita to mediate between the Gulf leaders, with whom the king entertains very good relationships.Ouahbi stated that Morocco’s position is “for the benefit of all. It is for building the future because the region’s destiny lies in mutual cooperation, healthy dialogue, and having a long-term vision.” read more

Most important Buckeyes for 2014 – No 6 Jeff Heuerman

Then-junior tight end Jeff Heuerman (86) is tackled out of bounds during a game against Wisconsin Sept. 28 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 31-24.Credit: Lantern file photoAs we rapidly close in on the top five, The Lantern continues its countdown of the top 10 most important Buckeyes for the 2014 Ohio State football season.No. 6: Jeff Heuerman, senior tight endEvery season since Ben Hartsock’s 2003 departure, Buckeye fans across the state have been saying “this is the year” an OSU tight end becomes a key part of the passing game. Over time, after repeated underwhelming displays of production from the position, that statement has become a question.Is this the year?After years of failure, 2013 was a step in the right direction.In 2004 and 2005 it was Ryan Hamby’s chance. He’s best known for a dropped touchdown against Texas in 2005 that could have won the game. From 2006 to 2008 it was Rory Nicol’s chance, but he never managed more than 13 receptions.In 2009 Jake Ballard proved to be a solid player and had a key reception in OSU’s Rose Bowl win against Oregon, but he was not key to the offense.Jake Stoneburner broke through with 21 catches in 2010 and seven touchdowns in 2011, but he was more of an oversized receiver and still didn’t ooze production.After Stoneburner’s departure in 2012, this past season was finally Heuerman’s chance to shine.Heuerman tallied 26 receptions for 466 yards and four touchdowns –– easily the best tight end production OSU has had in a decade –– and proved to be a valuable safety valve for then-junior quarterback Braxton Miller.In 2014, Heuerman’s importance to the team will go well beyond his number of catches or his trips to the end zone. The most important thing will be when those catches occur.Miller is now a senior with another offseason under his belt, but he missed all of spring practice with a shoulder injury. He is expected to be set to go for the season opener, but that injury, and his injury in 2013 that caused then-senior quarterback Kenny Guiton to step in and attempt 109 passes, served as a wake-up call for coach Urban Meyer and his staff.For this team to be successful, Miller must be healthy, and Heuerman can do a lot to ensure he stays that way. Not only is he a strong blocker on the edge, Heuerman’s ability to bail Miller out in tough situations can prevent the signal caller from running as often as normal.Miller is certainly a runner first, but that might have to change of OSU is to be successful, and having the frame of Heuerman on the field gives him a near sure thing to check down to.Heuerman checks in at 6 feet, 5 inches and 255 pounds. He is an imposing presence on the field and the Buckeyes should hope to –– and expect to –– see a jump in his production for 2014.So is this the year? Does it really even matter?Heuerman put up great numbers last year, and as long as he continues his production and elevates his game, even more balls should be headed his way.OSU’s first game of the season is scheduled for Aug. 30 when the Buckeyes face Navy in Baltimore, Md. read more

Cover Critique Time Outs DuctTaped Sex

first_imgTime Out New York followed up its “sex issue” (“How Not to Promote Your Magazine’s Special Issue”) with the anti-sex, err, anti-Sex and the City issue. The cover features a photo illustration of the show’s stars with their mouths duct-taped shut. It’s an effort to combat the relentless hype the HBO-hit-turned-movie has garnered (see Entertainment Weekly’s latest cover, for starters). It also serves as a thinly-veiled shot to its bigger, more established (and, frankly, better-designed) rival, New York magazine, which last week plopped Sex star Sarah Jessica Parker on its cover, declaring “Sex is Back”—as if it had never left.NAME: Tim O’BrienTITLE: Illustrator, Rolling StoneCRITIQUE: I subscribe to Time Out. They often have clever concepts on their covers. For me, a photoshop gag has to be well executed to work. I get that this movie is being talked about way too much, but duct tape over a woman’s mouth, anyone’s mouth is always sick. The trick can work visually, however, if the lighting on the tape matches the lighting on the women. In each, the model who posed with tape on their face for the photographer had one light source from the side and merely turned the head to match the head positions. The lighting on the photo of the Sex ladies is controlled and flat to minimize father time. The mix of both makes the tape too dark on the shadow side but works best on Cynthia Nixon, I guess. I would also have had the headline, “NO MORE SEX!” If I were in on the concept meeting, I might have pitched a photo of a torn and weathered poster on a wall in Manhattan with other images beneath it. New Yorkers show how they’ve move on in the small editorials written on posters in the subways. Perhaps it’s too subtle though. Here [right] is how it might look. After doing it, I might like their cover more. Ha!NAME: Dan TrombettoTITLE: art director, FOLIO:CRITIQUE: I was hesitant to comment on this one, because I felt my opinions might be swayed by the fact that I detest the show and its characters and I cringe whenever I see the trailers for the movie. So because of my feelings toward Sex, this image and concept immediately brings me some perverse sense of joy. Sure, the cover subject with a duct-taped mouth has been done a few times before—but this image does convey exactly how I feel about the franchise at this point. It’s probably safe to say that much of their target audience (New Yorkers) share these sentiments as well. And while I don’t think they were really aiming for a design award with this cover, it still probably could have benefited from a smaller color range. Maybe it’s the reds that aren’t mixing too well with the cooler pinks, lavenders, blues … Color clashing aside, this cover still makes me happy. NAME: Marco TurelliTITLE: Art Director, Wine Enthusiast magazineCRITIQUE: Luckily for TONY, they don’t have to rely on newsstand sales. I think that it is an adequate attempt at not much of a rebuttal to NY Magazine’s coverage. I’m sure that I could enjoy NYC Carrie-free 1965 times between Ave A and B alone, so I don’t think that the cover line really sells me on much. I’m sure readers in Jersey and Queens will be jumping out of their socks when they see this issue. Color palette is horrible. Off the top of my head I’d rather see a pile of designer shoes in a dumpster with the “no sex” cover line. Better than what looks to be stock shots of somewhat asexual, past-their-prime women. (Maybe it does work?) I’d give it two out of five stars, I guess. What do you think?

Fakhrul bursts into tears

first_img: Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir burts into tears during a press conference at the BNP chairperson Gulshan office on Monday. Photo: Abdus Salam Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday broke down during a press conference on Monday.The soft-spoken politician burst into tears as the main opposition party is going to contest the general elections for the first time in absence of the BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia.“This is for the first time, we are contesting the polls without our chairperson,” Mirza Fakhrul told the press conference at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office.Khaleda Zia has been kept in jail since she was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on 8 February 2018.The BNP has all along claimed that the case was a politically motivated one.Several leaders present at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office turned emotional when Mirza Fakhrul broke into tears and ran out of words for at least two minutes.Mirza Fakhrul, who has been running the party in absence of both Khaleda Zia and acting chairman Tarique Rahman, made announcement of distributing letters to party nominees. The first ticket has been handed over to BNP’s joint secretary general Mujibur Rahman Sarowar.Fakhrul, in his speech during the press conference, clarified why the BNP decided to participate in the polls.The BNP is contesting the election as part of movement, although there is no sign of holding a fair election, Mirza Fakhrul said.Khaleda Zia takes the charge of the BNP in 1982 after the death of her husband and former president Ziaur Rahman.Khaleda Zia was one of the key leaders who led the movement to unseat HM Ershad from office and restore democracy.The BNP contested the polls in 1991, 1996, 2001 and 2008 under the leadership of Khaleda Zia and was elected prime minister of Bangladesh thrice. She was defeated in the election of 2008.last_img read more

Only Microsoft Edge can stream Netflix at 1080p on Windows 10

first_imgMicrosoft Edge is good at doing more than just downloading Chrome or Firefox. Turns out it’s also good at streaming 1080p video from Netflix — and it’s the only Windows browser that can do it.That’s right. If you want to watch Netflix in a browser with crisp 1080p video, you’ll have to do it in Edge. PC World recently set up a test that pitted Edge against Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. According to PC World’s test, all three of the challengers maxed out at 720p resolution. Edge alone could handle 1080p.This isn’t something that’s unique to Windows 10, either. On Windows 8 and 8.1, Internet Explorer was the only browser that could handle 1080p playback. Microsoft says that’s because its browsers are “taking full advantage of platform features,” like PlayReady DRM.Google, Mozilla, and Opera are all building browsers for multiple OSes, of course. Microsoft is only worried about one, so it makes sense that they’d do that. Not plugging in to every Windows feature that could give their browser an edge would be a pretty massive failure on their part.Oh, and don’t forget that even though it can handle higher-resolution Netflix video Edge is still the browser that’s the easiest on your battery. A Surface Book looping a full HD video in Edge ran for more than seven hours in Microsoft’s test while Opera pooped out an hour sooner to finish second. Chrome finished dead last and only clocked 4:19.So that’s it then, right? To get the best quality out of Netflix you’re going to have to adapt to a new web browser? Well, not quite. You can always head to the Windows store and grab the Netflix app instead. It can handle 1080p streaming, too.last_img read more

Zip me up inside IndieCade East

first_imgVideo games are back! As easy as it’s been to decry the safe, boring, and arguably borderline offensive state of the firmly established modern AAA scene, independent games have been doing more than their fair share to keep the medium interesting. With mid-tier games from big publishers virtually nonexistent now, indie games moved in to occupy a similar space, only with a lot more creative freedom. And that creative freedom was on full display at this year’s IndieCade East at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York. Here are some of the biggest trends from the show.Sony was the only console maker to have a significant presence at the show. That wasn’t surprising as Sony has almost perfected the art of courting indies to its platform. Remember when that was Microsoft’s thing? The main demo space featured plenty of PlayStation branding as well as kiosks for upcoming offbeat PS4 games such as Push Me Pull You, Gang Beasts, and the perfectly titled 100ft Robot Golf.Richard Marks, director of the PlayStation Magic Lab in Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Research & Development division, gave the keynote about what works and what doesn’t in virtual reality. Lots of student projects on the show floor experimented with VR technology, so it was a useful, timely talk for aspiring developers.Sony had a PlayStation VR demo in the Strange Arcade area. Unfortunately, it didn’t involve getting zipped inside a sleeping bag like another VR demo, Anamorphic Agency, on the same floor. Most indie games you’ll find on the PS4 you’ll find on the PC as well on services such as Steam or itch.io, but it’s encouraging to see Sony bringing these tiny titles to a bigger audience.Speaking of the audience, it was great to see so many children at the event. Another unfortunate side effect of AAA gaming’s self-seriousness is the erroneous belief that video games can’t or shouldn’t be for kids anymore. And while you may not want your kids around nightmare fuel like psychedelic RPG Hylics or Dreams and its vagina controller (unless you’re an awesome parent) there’s no reason families can’t enjoy an indie game like Nest. This local multiplayer game by Ken Amarit’s features an adorable, stop-motion wool art style, and watching kids approach its homemade arcade cabinet all weekend never got old.Based on the games highlighted, I could also see indie games beginning to pivot towards the kinds of games kids these days dig. Gigantic eSports such as Dota and League of Legends, along with their profitable young communities, are among the most important trends in all of gaming. And at IndieCade East it was obvious indie game creators are trying to get in on the electronic sports action, too.I must have played a dozen games that were all variations on “chaotic multiplayer game with vague soccer elements.” The only one that sticks out is the accidental remake of Warlords for the Atari 2600. I don’t remember its real name. On the second floor volunteers hosted matches for games like Pocket Rumble and Ultimate Chicken Horse on a projector throughout the day, complete with running commentary. So no matter what scale you’re operating at, it seems eSports are a smart investment.There were so many weird, intriguing games to play at IndieCade East that ignoring a glut of forgettable eSports was easy. I strapped on a surgical mask and played a veterinarian game where I pounded on a plush dog’s chest and gave it mouth-to-mouth. I joined a drunken game of co-op Tetris where ten players controlled their own falling blocks working together to try and create unbroken lines. I fiddled with a game called Ziff (no relation to Ziff Davis) in which you control a character by manually rearranging limbs on a toy. Take that, amiibo!I replayed Ape Out, a promising NYU student game I check out a few months ago, and enjoyed it even more. Players control an escaped ape navigating a maze of hostile humans with a satisfying combination of stealth and brutality. It’s like Donkey Kong Country meets the first Metal Gear Solid.But my personal game of the show is Disc Jockey Jockey. This Strange Arcade game featured an audio mixing board controller. Players had to listen to various radio channels and skillfully crossfade between music and voice for smooth transitions. My colleague KT Tandler (who also provided these photos) compared its blurred line between play and labor to Papers, Please. It also reminded me of the secret best rhythm game of all time, DJ Hero.IndieCade East was more than just a place to play great, unique games. It also hosted several panels with great, unique perspectives on the industry. Since I’m not a developer, I mostly sat in on panels about the social side of the industry. I saw panels about diversity in video games themselves as well as diversity in who makes video games. I saw a panel about male vs. female objectification using the Street Fighter V “Hot Ryu” meme as a starting point. But the most entertaining panel by far was Robert Yang’s “Let’s Get Lit: How to Light Your Game Like a Strip Club.” Beyond being a thorough introduction to how film lighting techniques can improve game visuals, Yang never missed an opportunity to show a clip from Magic Mike or casually, lovingly diss other video games like Metal Gear Solid V and Overwatch.Overall I really enjoyed my time at IndieCade East. I think it demonstrated the health of an increasingly important part of the video game industry. But next time I have to remember to bring a comb. VR headsets, my small afro, and a public space full of prying eyes definitely don’t mix.last_img read more

Googles Halloween Game Is All About A Spell Casting Cat

first_imgWhen Google first introduced its interactive Doodles they were something to get excited and talk about regularly, especially when they made Pac-Man playable in a browser. But now they’ve become the norm and we expect new ones regularly. However, the Google Doodle for Halloween this year is worth a mention.Google’s Doodle team has created a rather fun and very addictive game for Halloween 2016. It involves casting spells and thwarting an onslaught of ever more persistent ghosts.The game has you play as a freshman feline called Momo who is attending the Magic Cat Academy school when spirits threaten to take over after stealing the master spellbook. Momo has to defeat all the ghosts using appropriate spells cast by swiping on the screen. Each ghost has a symbol or multiple symbols above its head which the player must swipe in the correct order to defeat a specific ghost or ghosts.The more symbols there are, the harder a ghost is to defeat and some ghosts have multiple sets of symbols (end of level bosses). Things can get pretty hectic as an increasing number of ghosts fill the screen and travel towards Momo more quickly.In total, there are 5 levels set across the library, cafeteria, classroom, gym, and school rooftop. It does form quite the challenge in later levels, and requires some very quick and precise mouse actions if you aren’t playing on a touchscreen. Even so, I did manage to beat it with a score of 95,040.See if you can beat that and share your score in the comments…last_img read more
