first_imgStanding in front of her kuchcha house in Champanagar village in Jharkhand’s Gumla district, 15-year-old Sulekha Oraon speaks impassively about her mother’s death. Jhibal Tirkey, 40, died on August 26, having given birth at home to her eighth child just a couple of days earlier. Sulekha says they didn’t have money to take her to a hospital, and villagers put together money for her cremation. It’s what happened to the eighth child that has now brought the tribal family’s story to government attention. The infant girl was handed over by Tirkey to a family allegedly for Rs 10,000, as she needed the money for her treatment and for her ailing husband’s.

Police haven’t identified the couple who took her. Meanwhile, the Rs 10,000 is almost all gone, spent on treatment, to pay off some old debt, and for the rituals following Tirkey’s death, claimed family members and neighbors. Some also feigned ignorance of where the money was used. Tirkey had been working till the morning of her delivery at a local grocery store, where she did odd jobs as a helper. Sulekha, who studies in Class 10, says they don’t have a ration card, and lived hand to mouth. Tirkey’s husband Charva Oraon, a rickshaw puller, has been bedridden for the past few months due to a stomach ailment, and the Rs 200 she made daily was the family’s only source of income. Since Tirkey’s death, Charva has been in hospital. (Inputs from The Indian Express)last_img read more

“The suffering and displacement of the people, especially women and children, in eastern DRC and beyond have gone on for too long and cannot be tolerated any further,” the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy, Mary Robinson.Fighting between rebels from the 23 March Movement (M23) and the national armed forces (known as the FARDC) broke out again yesterday morning in Kibati and Rusayo, some 12 kilometres from Goma, the capital of North Kivu province.Tensions have been heightened in the region recently as the M23 publicly decried the deployment of an intervention brigade within the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in DRC (MONUSCO) and broke off the so-called Kampala peace talks with the DRC Government.Earlier today, MONUSCO reported that for the second day, fighting between M23 and Congolese forces has resumed in Mutaho, some 12 kilometres from Goma. MONUSCO, which is closely monitoring the situation, has expressed strong concerns about this development while actively intervening to seek de-escalation of the situation. The Mission says that it is actively continuing its diplomatic and political efforts at all levels to contain and end these clashes. The proposed principles Mrs. Robinson presented seek to guide immediate peace efforts to tackle the crisis in the region, while maintaining a focus on long-term solutions. They recognize the importance of ending the suffering of the mostly women and children who have been displaced by the violence, and call for the acceleration of the voluntary return of all refugees in the region. They also call for the demobilization of all armed groups active in eastern DRC, and urge all parties to comply with all their obligations under international law.“Any agreements reached between the parties should contribute to breaking the cycle of violence and impunity for human rights abuses,” her Office said in a news release.Mrs. Robinson, who recently visited the country, also urged the DRC and all other parties to implement their commitments under a recently adopted framework agreement with a focus on a peaceful solution to the crisis in the eastern DRC and the region. The UN-brokered Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework was adopted in February with the support of 11 nations and four international organizations (11+4), and aims to end the cycles of conflict and crisis in the eastern DRC and to build peace in the long-troubled region.Mrs. Robinson will be joining Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim on their upcoming joint visit to the DRC, Rwanda and Uganda from 22-24 May. read more

Senior guard Kelsey Mitchell (3) runs the ball down court during the second quarter of the Ohio State women’s basketball game against Stanford. Ohio State won 85-64. Credit: Ris Twigg | Assistant Photo EditorNo. 9 Ohio State (1-1) will return to action at 7 p.m. Wednesday to take on Idaho (1-0) after beginning the season by splitting a tough weekend series of games, beating No. 14 Stanford 85-64 and falling to No. 5 Louisville 95-90 in overtime.The Vandals opened the year Friday against Colorado State and rode a 21-0 run to an 83-69 win. They finished 19-15 last season and returned their top three scorers — sophomore guard Mikayla Ferenz, junior forward Geraldine McCorkell and sophomore guard Taylor Piece.Ferenz poses a threat to the Buckeyes, who allowed Louisville guard Asia Durr to drop a school-record 47 points in Sunday’s game. Though she has never scored 47 points, Ferenz holds the program record for a 41-point game against Northern Arizona a season ago. The guard averaged a conference-leading 18.5 points per game last season and was honored as first-team All-Big Sky.“She can really shoot the ball,” Ohio State head coach Kevin McGuff said. “She’s a big-time player. She’s great off a screen. She’s got a very quick release. She’s somebody we’ve got to find in transition. She’s capable of absolutely having a huge night, so we’ve got to make sure we can slow her down.”Ferenz connected on 43.9 percent of field goals, 36.3 percent of 3-pointers and 88.8 percent of free throws in 2016-17. McCorkell and Pierce added 12.8 and 12.6 points per game last season, respectively. “The thing about them is they’re so different,” McGuff said. “They’re going to come in and shoot probably 40 3s and if we’re not on point with our defense, they could really make you pay.”McGuff might have exaggerated how many triples Idaho launches, but not by much. Against the Rams, the Vandals tied a school record by hitting 18 3-pointers on 36 attempts. Last season, they ranked third in the country with 10.4 3-point makes per game. “I’m telling you, you guys are going to watch Idaho and watch them run offense and shoot 3s and be like, ‘Wow, they’re hard to play against,’” McGuff said. “And so, I think it’s going to be a really big challenge for us from a mental standpoint.”Though Ohio State will likely have its hands full defending Idaho’s offense, it might have an advantage inside. McCorkell led the team with 6.8 rebounds per game. She will likely be one of the players tasked with defending Ohio State redshirt senior forward Stephanie Mavunga, who dropped 23 points and pulled down 26 rebounds in the season opener against Stanford.Louisville stifled Mavunga and the Buckeyes’ rebounders, but Idaho might struggle due to the physical differences between the two teams.“We will be physically, overall as a team, faster, bigger and stronger than Idaho,” McGuff said. “That’s not what’s going to determine the game. It’s going to be our mental fortitude and our mental toughness to be able to lock in and really defend what they’re doing.”In the offseason, McGuff said Ohio State’s focus was on improving a defense that has held the team back in the past. He said he saw flashes of improvement in the first two games of the season, which encouraged him. Idaho’s 3-point-happy offense, which turned the ball over just 13.2 times per game last season (30th in the country), presents the latest challenge for the Buckeye defense. read more

first_imgA NEW REPORT from the Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation has said that there is a need to boost the level of information and communications technology (ICT) literacy among teachers.The report found that there is a significant gap between the ICT skills which are taught in our schools and those that are required to take up job opportunities in the technology sector.According to a 2008 inspectorate report, only 25 per cent of post-primary teachers rated themselves as having intermediate or advanced IT skills.Commenting on the committee report, Senator Deirdre Clune said it will be “impossible to further the development of computing within schools unless we have teachers who are capable of showing their students how to engage with the creative tools of ICT”.The report also said that inadequate resources and broadband in schools are making the implementation of ICT strategies more difficult.While the committee recognised the decision to include the option of studying short courses in computer programming as part of a new curriculum to replace the Junior Cert the report recommends making programming and/or computer science as much a part of the curriculum as languages.The committee report also highlighted the importance of creating an accreditation system for ICT professionals.“The benefits of creating an accreditation system with in the Irish technology sector include providing greater clarity for those who wish to pursue careers within the ICT sector, assuring a standard for companies investing in Ireland and raising the standard of the entire industry,” said Clune.Among the report’s other findings and recommendations was a suggestion of the development of a Technology Visa for IT professionals that would enable highly skilled workers from abroad to fill temporary skills shortages in Ireland.The committee estimated there are around 4,500 vacancies in IT skills across the country.Read: A review of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) skills demand in Ireland>last_img read more

first_imgIf you ever need to provide proof that texting on your phone is distracting, then use the video above. This girl is walking through a mall while either reading or typing a message. She’s so involved that she doesn’t notice the fountain behind the low wall she is approaching.The inevitable happens and the girl ends up in the fountain. Her phone? We suspect it needs replacing, or if she’s lucky it will dry out and continue to work.The whole incident was picked up on security cameras from multiple angles. There is clearly a wall in front of her that on any normal walk would be seen by everyone, but the use of a phone shuts just about everything else out including peripheral vision.While it’s funny to watch her fall into the fountain, this is a very clear example of why texting while driving is being banned in a lot of places. Your attention is focused on the phone and nothing else, and that’s why accidents a lot worse then getting wet happen.via YouTubelast_img read more

first_imgNew Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians gestures as he is introduced during a news conference Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, in Tampa, Fla. (AP Photo/Chris O’Meara) Bruce Arians couldn’t last through a 12-minute interview without letting one slip.So you can imagine how difficult it was for the former Arizona Cardinals head coach to reel in his tongue in the broadcast booth for CBS Sports this past season.That wasn’t the biggest reason why Arians’ retirement lasted just a year. With the perfect coaching staff available around him and a familiarity with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ front office, he found the perfect opportunity to return to the game as head coach of the Bucs. The year off also helped Arians regain his health.“They gave me this unbelievable physical,” he said Tuesday. “They said I got a C. That’s like the best news I had in 10 years: I got a C on the physical. Yeah, I mean, Cs were always great for me … you know what I mean?“When you’ve been an F health-wise for 10 years, a C is great.”Arizona never contacted Arians about its own head coaching opening, and he never reached out about potentially returning to the desert, he said. The Cardinals were well into their search by the time it became clear to Arians he could leave retirement.Now with the Bucs, Arians will face his former Arizona team at some point in 2019 — as uncomfortable as it’ll be.“Those are always the ones I always hope we get through fast, when you have relationships with people,” he said. “It’s never fun but you got to play the game. Hopefully you can win and get over with it quick.”Arians hosting farewell golf tournamentThe Arians Family Foundation will host its sixth annual golf classic at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, Ariz., on March 22-23.The golf event, a dinner and concert will benefit CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Those wishing to enter the tournament can fill out a form from the Arians Family Foundation website.

I said, ‘Woah, this isn’t my team, I can’t do that.’ Things had to fall into place for me to do it.”The 2018 season wasn’t a waste.Arians visited teams across the NFL, taking tidbits from veteran coaches like the Kansas City Chiefs’ Andy Reid and youngsters such as the Rams’ Sean McVay.“Andy Reid has obviously, he’s always on the cutting edge, always has been,” Arians said. “A lot of these young guys have some things.“None of that stuff works unless you have a Patrick Mahomes and a Tyreek Hill. You can do all kinds of (expletive), man.”Arians remains firm that he was done with coaching when he retired following the 2017 season, leaving the Cardinals after an 8-8 campaign. But as he felt out of place in the booth and began stopping himself from coaching other coaches’ players, the fire started burning.

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterBetween mid-June to early-July 2018, European Waterways is offering wine-lovers an opportunity to visit two wine-making regions in France – the eponymous Champagne and Burgundy – with a new ‘Back-to-Back’ two-week cruise option.Through this option, guests can book the Panache hotel barge in Champagne and L’Impressionniste in neighbouring Burgundy for two consecutive weeks of exploration, education and wine tastings. As an added incentive, European Waterways will also provide a free night’s stay at the Hotel Westminster in Paris; a French institution situated along the Rue De Paix.This back-to-back cruise opportunity is only available for limited weeks, when the 12-passenger Panache cruises the River Marne through Champagne’s peaceful vineyards.A sparkling opportunityBooking consecutive cruises in Champagne and Burgundy during the 12-passenger Panache’s sailings is convenient because European Waterways will transfer guests seamlessly from one vessel to another, with an intervening night spent at the Hotel Westminster in the “city of light”.Among the highlights of Panache’s Champagne cruise is a visit to the village of Hautvilliers, known as the “cradle of Champagne”. It is here that the monk, Dom Pérignon, discovered the Méthode Champenoise, from which the best Champagnes and sparkling wines are made. They’ll also experience a tasting and cellar tour in Epernay, as well as the option to sample different champagnes each evening aboard Panache.Another cruise highlight is La Maison Pannier, a champagne house notable for its labyrinth of medieval underground cellars. Guests can tour these subterranean vaults and finish with a private tasting. During the cruise, Panache will also moor at Château-Thierry.Making a good impressionThe second week of the cruise will continue on the 12-passenger L’Impressionniste hotel barge, which cruises the Burgundy Canal in the wine region of Southern Burgundy. Among wine cellars visited are Clos de Vougeot, headquarters of Chevaliers du Tastevin, which awards a special prized label to the finest Côte d‘Or vintages every year. Guests will also enjoy a wine tasting at Château André Ziltener.In addition to scenic drives through many of the region’s premier vineyards, guests will visit the Vigne de L’Enfant Jésus, a vineyard owned by the Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils. There, a wine expert will explain the vineyard’s production of its Grand Cru and Premier Cru wines. This will be followed by a gastronomic repast in the orangerie of Château de Beaune, owned by the winery since 1820.“Wine is just one aspect of these exceptional, ‘Back-to-Back’ cruises,” noted Derek Banks, Managing Director of European Waterways.“France’s culinary tradition is also on full display – and a worthy companion.
