first_imgKolkata: The Buxa Tiger Reserve (BTR) in Alipurduar district of North Bengal is all set to release 50 sambar deer to guarantee food for the Royal Bengal tigers in the reserve. The deer will be transported from Jaldapara National Park to BTR which is gearing up to introduce 12 Royal Bengal tigers in the reserve, to augment the tiger population there.”We have been bringing in herbivores in phases from different wildlife sanctuaries to boost the food chain ahead of the introduction of the big cats in the BTR. The decision to release the sambar deer is a stride towards that direction,” state Forest minister Binay Krishna Barman said. The BTR authorities have already released 335 deer in the reserve in three phases. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellersThe tigers will be brought from the forest reserves in Assam, which have similar flora and fauna as the Buxa forest. “The climatic conditions and the flora and fauna of Buxa match with that of Assam. We have already written to the Assam government for procuring a dozen tigers,” a senior official of the state Forest department said. It has been learnt that the department has consciously decided not to bring in tigers from the Sunderbans mangrove forest, as it has a completely different mangrove ecosystem and it would have been difficult for the animals to survive in the climatic condition at Buxa if they were brought from there. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaMoreover, BTR is located close to Assam’s Manas Tiger Reserve and some experts believe that animals from Manas often come to Buxa using Bhutan as a corridor. Buxa is one of the three forests in India where the National Tiger Conservation Authority has approved the tiger augmentation programme. The BTR is home to smaller cats such as leopards which occasionally surface in the tea gardens nearby. There are also common clouded leopards, jungle cats and fishing cats. The herbivore list includes elephants, Indian gaur, chital, sambars, barking deer and hog deer. The tiger reserve has an area of about 757.9 sq km, of which 390 sq km lies in the core area, with 367 sq km in the buffer zone. The number of tigers in BTR has been often debated by wildlife enthusiasts. While Forest Department officials claimed there were tigers in the reserve, almost no sighting of the big cats raised questions about their presence. The survey of tigers in 2011 based on DNA analysis of scat put the number of tigers at 20.last_img read more

Rabat – The international TV sensation Vikings has followed its HBO rival Game of Thrones to the desert landscapes of Morocco for the production of its fifth season.Fans of the historical fiction are eagerly anticipating of the fifth season of the show, which will feature North African landscapes as well as a new chapter in Bjorn Iron side’s storyline.Primarily shot in Ireland throughout its four previous season, Vikings has travelled across the Mediterranean and all the way to Morocco for the shooting of its new season. True to the original plotline of the legendary king of Sweden, creator Michael Hirst said  to Entertainment Weekly that “I always knew the real Bjorn Ironside went into the Mediterranean and found himself in what is now Tunisia, on the edge of the Sahara”One of the reasons why Hirst chose to shoot the fifth season in Morocco is because of its rich Saharan land. “One of the things that was constraining us was that we couldn’t reproduce the Sahara desert in the west of Ireland.”The History Channel production shared glimpses on sociall media of its crew in Morocco, with Bjorn, played by Alexander Ludwig who also showed excitement in his journey in Morocco, riding a camel in the desert.“When you see the Vikings in the Sahara, in these sand dunes… you’d never seen that palette on the show before. It’s exquisite and wonderful,” he said.Alex Høgh Andersen, who plays Ivar the Boneless, shared a picture of himself in the rain, leaning against his chariot.“He’s given a chariot to travel around in, and being Ivar, he travels around in it completely recklessly, and crashes it at a very inopportune moment. The moment he’s crashed it and leans up against the wheels, he realizes he’s surrounded by Saxon warriors,” said the director.“He laughs at them and he taunts them. He is Ivar the Boneless, and it doesn’t matter how many arrows they shoot, they cannot kill him,” he added.Vikings’ fifth season is set to premiere later this year on November 29, with a two-hour-long premiere. read more

28 March 2011Africa is well poised to take advantage of a host of opportunities on the continent for building a ‘green economy,’ one that generates decent jobs in an environmentally sustainable way, a senior United Nations official said today. “This continent is in many ways the envy of the 21st century world,” Achim Steiner, Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), told African ministers of finance, planning and economic development gathered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. “Africa is rich in the kinds of natural resources that in many parts of the world have been over-exploited and diminished by centuries of unsustainable development,” he stated. This includes not just precious and semi-precious metals, but also nature-based resources such as forests and biodiversity, which support tourism and could also underpin inventions and pharmaceutical breakthroughs. At the same time, many parts of the continent are rich in so-called natural fuels such as wind, solar and geothermal. “The fundamental question,” said Mr. Steiner, “is how will all this potential be harvested for the benefit of Africa’s citizens and in a way that promotes stability in Africa and beyond.” He noted that the green economy is not a substitute for sustainable development, but a way of realizing it. “It is as relevant to developing economies and it is to developed ones; it is as central to more state-led economies as it is to more market-led ones. It is not a straitjacket, nor is it prescriptive.” In February UNEP released a report outlining how investing 2 per cent of global gross domestic product (GDP) in 10 sectors can catalyze the transition to a green economy. It also provided a global compilation of case studies from across the globe, including Africa, where forward-looking policies by governments are “watering the green shoots” of the global green economy. One example is South Africa, whose Green Economy Plan focuses on investments that create more decent jobs, and where nearly $1 billion is being spent on railways, energy-efficient buildings, and water and waste management. He also highlighted Kenya’s new green energy policy, including a feed-in tariff and 15-year power purchase agreement, which is catalyzing an initial target of 500 megawatts of energy from geothermal, wind and sugar wastes systems. Later this week, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will visit Kenya’s main geothermal sites, located north-west of Nairobi, to learn first-hand how these developments have been achieved, as well as how they are set to generate thousands of new jobs in the clean energy sector while reducing dependency on imported fossil fuels. “The rest of the world can learn from Africa, but Africa can also learn from other continents,” said Mr. Steiner. He added that the upcoming UN Conference on Sustainable Development, set to be held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012 – 20 years after the Earth Summit of 1992, could prove to be one of the most transformative moments in international affairs. “In 1992, we could only perhaps glimpse the scale some of the challenges emerging on the radar from climate change and the loss of healthy, productive cropland,” he noted. “But in the world of the here and now, many of those challenges have become all too real. There is an urgency to swiftly and decisively evolve the sustainable development agenda onto a far more focused and far reaching level.” He said that the question now emerging is not whether a green economy is desirable but how to realize a green economy in practical terms. “Rio+20 offers an opportunity to accelerate and scale-up transitions, already under way across this region and indeed across the world in order to catalyze growth and employment opportunities for around nine billion people by 2050,” he stated. “But in a way that also maintains and enhances the regional and global planetary services that underpin wealth generation in the first place. “Africa’s experience on what has worked and what has not worked over the past two decades offers an invaluable foundation upon which a transformational outcome next year can be built.” read more

The Country Reports on Human Rights Practices, commonly known as the Human Rights Reports, cover the status of human rights in countries around the world. Sri Lanka is expected to figure in the annual U.S human rights report to be released on Thursday, sources told the Colombo Gazette.U.S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Assistant Secretary for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Michael Posner will release the 2011 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices in the Department of State Press Briefing Room. He said the United States shares concerns about accountability for the alleged violations of international humanitarian and human rights law that occurred during Sri Lanka’s recent conflict and is committed to working with the government of Sri Lanka, the United Nations, and the international community to implement a just and equitable reconciliation process for all Sri Lankans.“At the request of Congress, the Department of State prepared two reports in 2009 and 2010 on alleged violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law during Sri Lanka’s recent conflict. These reports can be found at www.state.gov. As we noted in both reports, the United States takes these allegations very seriously. We believe individual accountability for such violations is a critical component of reconciliation, and meaningful steps in this regard will advance Sri Lanka’s own efforts to heal after decades of conflict,” Posner said. Earlier this year Michael H. Posner had said that the United States will push for an international accountability mechanism in Sri Lanka over alleged Human Rights violations. Posner further added that the U.S. hopes the Government of Sri Lanka will address these reconciliation and accountability issues in a manner commensurate with its international obligations, and for its part the U.S. will continue to reiterate to the government of Sri Lanka that, while domestic authorities have primary responsibility to ensure that those responsible for violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law are held accountable, international accountability mechanisms can become appropriate in circumstances in which a government is unable or unwilling to meet its obligations.The annual human rights report was compiled before the recent meeting between External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris and U.S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Washington. (Colombo Gazette) read more

World tourism continues to exceed expectations, showing resilience against factors such as this summer’s Israeli-Hizbollah war in Lebanon and terrorist threats to air travel, with international arrivals for the first eight months up 4.5 per cent and poised to set another all-time high, according to latest United Nations figures released today.“The short term outlook remains very positive, especially against the background of a strong world economy and as favourable exchange rates continue to encourage European and Asian travellers,” the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) said in its World Tourism Barometer. “International tourism is likely to remain buoyant unless major incidents occur.”Growth for the whole of 2006 is forecast at 4.6 per cent. Growth is expected to continue in 2007 at around 4 per cent worldwide, which though slightly slower than in previous years, is much in line with UNWTO’s long-term forecast growth rate of 4.1 per cent a year through 2020.In the first eight months of 2006 international tourist arrivals totalled 578 million worldwide, up from 553 million in the same period of 2005, a year which saw an all-time record of 806 million people travelling internationally.With an increase of 9.8 per cent for the period, Africa is this year again the world’s regional leader. Sub-Saharan Africa, with 12.6 per cent leads the performance so far, pulled notably by South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique, Swaziland and the Seychelles. Asia-Pacific was the world’s second fastest-growing region in the first eight months with 8.3 per cent. While South and South-Eastern destinations surpassed the average growth and the North East Asia was close to it, arrivals to Oceania were on the negative side.The Middle East’s results at 6 per cent are on track despite military-political setbacks. Data so far shows that the 34-day conflict between Israel and Lebanon had only very limited impact on the region as a whole. Although it has taken its toll on demand for some destinations, past experience suggests that consumer confidence can recover quickly and international arrivals could end 2006 up by 7.2 per cent.Europe’s growth of 3.1 per cent is not as modest as it might seem at first glance and if the rate is maintained for the rest of 2006 it would mean 14 million additional arrivals. There has been little evidence of travel plans being cancelled as a result terrorist threats to aircraft, even to the United Kingdom where the plot was centred.Overall growth for the Americas was a 2.5 per cent. Central America (8.7 per cent), South America (8.1 per cent) and the Caribbean (5.1 per cent) exceeded the global growth average but North America at 0.4 per cent fell well below, pulled down by declines in Canada (4.1 per cent) and Mexico (3.8 per cent) in spite of the 4.3 per cent growth in the United States. read more

ATHENS, Greece – National Bank of Greece, the debt-crippled country’s biggest lender by assets, on Friday announced a public offer to merge with its largest domestic competitor, Eurobank.NBG said in a statement that the proposal called for Eurobank shareholders to receive 58 new shares for every 100 that they own. Eurobank CEO Nikolaos Nanopoulos said his bank’s board would examine the proposal “in a constructive spirit.”Greek banks are under pressure to merge after experiencing severe damage from the three-year-old financial crisis and a major write-down in the country’s debt earlier this year.“Today’s public offer aims to create a broader banking group in Greece that will … stabilize the Greek banking system and provide the necessary financing to support Greece’s economic recovery,” NBG chairman George Zannias said in a statement.NBG said that together, the two lenders would have deposits of €87.9 billion ($114.3 billion), loans of €109.7 billion ($142.6 billion) and a network of 925 branches in Greece.Earlier Friday, Greek stock market authorities temporarily suspended trading in the two banks following media reports that a merger was possible.Anticipation of a deal fuelled a strong rally on the Athens stock market, with the benchmark general share index closing 5.05 per cent up. The bank sector posted gains of nearly 10 per cent.Shortly before the decision, NBG and Eurobank shares were up 4.5 and 5.5 per cent, respectively. by News Staff Posted Oct 5, 2012 4:55 pm MDT National Bank of Greece proposes merger with main domestic competitor Eurobank AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Yesterday’s election proved a stern test, but he received just over 54 per cent after all the votes had been counted. “The battle was perfect and the victory was perfect,” declared Chavez, while greeting his supporters from the presidential balcony in Caracas.last_img read more

first_img Apr 27th 2019, 7:30 AM Short URL 77 Comments Parental Leave: ‘Fathers have moved on from sitting in the pub next door to the hospital – Ireland has not’ A lot of what governs Ireland is stuck in the 1960s and hasn’t moved on at all. Parental Leave is one such thing, writes Derek Power. Father of two By Derek Power IRELAND IS A great country to live and bring up a family in, but sadly a lot of what governs Ireland is stuck in the 1960s and hasn’t moved on at all.Parental leave is one such thing. For a long time dads were entitled to very little in terms of parental leave when their little bundles of joy arrived. You got three days, unpaid, and that was it.Which is fantastic, right? Because who wants to spend more than three days at home with their kid?Some people, like myself, save holidays through the nine months of their partner’s pregnancy as best they can and book time off because they actually want to be around and help with the newborn.Because some people, like myself, are not still in that 1960s mindset of what a father is to their significant other after a child is born.We aren’t all sitting in the pub next door to the hospital sipping brandy and smoking cigars while slapping ourselves on the back for a job well done. We’re in the delivery room, hand holding, motivating, encouraging, calming the mother as she has a slight panic over a machine in the corner that went beep for the first time in 17 hours (it was low on battery). Fathers have moved on, Ireland has not.When we were expecting our first child I just happened to get a promotion in work. Part of my new deal was that I told my boss I wanted a once-off additional five days’ annual leave.I had plans to tag them on to any leave I had around the arrival of what turned out to be our little girl. He was surprised at the ballsy ask, but agreed because he knew what I was going to be using them for.When our little boy came along two-and-a-half years later I was in a new job and I was lucky. The three days unpaid thing had been changed to two weeks paid by the government and your employer could voluntarily decide to top up the difference in salary. My employer is one who strives to build a good culture and part of their policy around parental leave for dads is you get the top-up.Money worriesRecent statistics suggest that only 40% of working dads avail of parental leave. The reason being that as the main breadwinner, or the one with the bigger salary, the other 60% cannot afford to take parental leave.This isn’t to say they aren’t taking their own holidays, time off that their employer legally has to pay them the full rate for, it is just saying that they aren’t taking the two weeks of parental leave the government allows for.Two weeks, and each week the dad would receive €245. Money that their employer does not have to top up, by law, if they don’t want to.Some may top up to a percentage of the difference, others may go the whole amount, some may just smile and say enjoy the time off. The reality is there is 60% of the workforce out there that may not work in a company, like I currently do, which adds to the father’s weekly wage during paternity leave.Social Protection Minister Regina Doherty’s solution to this? Extend the leave by an additional two weeks. Now you get four measly weeks off as a new or returning dad at €245 a week. The additional weeks will, in Doherty’s own words, “help incentivise fathers to take more time off work to care for their children”.It isn’t the time that’s the problem. It is the stark reality that living in Ireland is not cheap.When she announced the new parental leave rules, Doherty took a shot at dads the land over by saying they needed to stop using excuses and start stepping up to the plate.Once again: parenthood has moved on from the 1960s, dads are not all useless slobs these days and actually are raising children along with their partners.The reality is if mum isn’t getting maternity pay from her employer then her salary has also been cut to €245 a week. Then dad has to go back to work pretty quickly to continue to pay for the little luxuries in life like food in fridge, power and heating, a roof over the family’s head. Ireland sucks in terms of pay roles, let’s be honest.In most cases it will be the male who is the bigger earner so that leaves no choice but for parental leave to fall to the mum. The government should look at tackling the joke of a situation before telling me I am not stepping up to the plate.I know a dad, great guy, who was the lower earner in his relationship. He quit his job so his wife could go back to work and he would be at home with the kids. If the same situation had been true for myself I’d have done it in a heartbeat. It killed me both times going back to work after two months of my kids’ arrival into the world.Sitting at a desk looking forward to the phone beeping with a photo or video of them from their mum. I wanted to be at home with them, not watching them through a screen.This isn’t the first time Doherty has made such grand and sweeping statements, but as an elected official she needs to be held accountable for her words.It is time that those in government get out of the tower and actually understand what is going on. Why might only 40% of fathers take parental leave? Well, because if they did they would be living hand to mouth.Considering how much tax I pay, and get very little back for such a huge chunk of change, I feel the government could give more back to working parents than they currently do.Derek Power is a working dad with two children aged three and one. He is one half of the parenting podcast Parenting Pobal.  Saturday 27 Apr 2019, 7:30 AM Derek Power 35,975 Views https://jrnl.ie/4608115 Share Tweet Email2 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

first_img500 personnes réunies à Avignon pour demander l’abandon du nucléaireSamedi 24 septembre, des centaines de personnes se sont réunies à Avignon pour réclamer la sortie du nucléaire de la France.

first_imgAtletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has rejected the comparisons between his current team to those of Spanish giants, Real Madrid and Barcelona.With Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from rivals Real Madrid to Juventus earlier in the summer and Atletico’s impressive transfer window, it has led to many suggestions that Simeone’s side now boasts a more impressive squad than that of their more illustrious and successful neighbours.However, Simeone insists he’s not trying to compare his team to that of current La Liga champions, Barcelona or that of Real Madrid.“We do not compare ourselves to Madrid or Barcelona,” Simeone said, according to FourFourTwo.

first_imgPort of Vancouver leaders want the port to be an engine for creating jobs.But making its business tenants happy can be a challenge, as the port’s different approach to two similar requests illustrates. After the port recently decided to negotiate the sale of land to a specialty steel company, The Neil Jones Food Co. asked for similar treatment. Eyeing expansion, the Vancouver-based food processor wants to own, instead of lease, the 15-acre, 400,000-square-foot complex that houses one of its subsidiaries, Northwest Packing Co.But port leaders, who agreed to free up land to bring Farwest Steel to the port in hopes of creating jobs, are hesitant to make a similar deal with Neil Jones, a longtime tenant.The conflict illustrates a difficult balance the port must strike. It wants to support employers who have set up shop on the port’s industrial lands. But selling off land prevents it from developing rail and other infrastructure that could lure more employers to Clark County.Port Commissioner Nancy Baker said Neil Jones’ Northwest Packing, which employs 538 workers at peak times, is important to the community. But if the port grants Neil Jones’ wish, the community loses public ownership, and therefore influence, over the site. Neil Jones leaders see it differently. To compete better in the global food industry, they want more control over their future. That means owning, not leasing, the Northwest Packing site.last_img read more

first_img Listen Share X Last week, Domino’s announced it will launch its first self-driving pizza delivery in Houston. And earlier this year, Kroger chose the Bayou City as one of its first places for driverless grocery delivery.So what is it about Houston that makes it an attractive city for companies to test out their autonomous vehicles?Chris Newport, senior manager with tech consulting firm Accenture in Houston, thinks there are a few reasons – economic, structural, environmental and cultural.“We have in Houston an electrical grid that’s been designed to meet a high demand for power and to do so in a resilient way,” he said. “And our transportation network has been largely designed for cars.”Other factors he mentioned are Houston’s strong population growth, climate, flat geography and tradition of welcoming innovative services.In addition to the corporate driverless vehicles, Metro also launched Houston’s first self-driving shuttle at Texas Southern University last week. Metro aims to use it as a pilot program to see how else autonomous vehicles could be used in the region.Newport ties these developments in with other recent steps toward making Houston more of a tech innovation city.“These projects are another instance of new investment being made here that’s just going to enhance our positioning on the global stage and make us more attractive to create more wind that’s going to lead to more growth for our region,” he said.You can watch a video of Domino’s autonomous pizza delivery vehicle, courtesy of Domino’s, below:Video Playerhttps://cdn.hpm.io/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/24174746/media_nuro-r1_driving_unbranded.mp400:0000:0000:44Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume. center_img 00:00 /00:48 – / 2 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: Brazil’s shock 1-2 defeat to Belgium has all but ended the east Indian city’s FIFA World Cup euphoria with Argentina also bowing out of the football competition earlier.Streets of football-mad Kolkata wore a despondent look on Saturday afternoon as clutters of Brazil and Argentina flags looked colourless in the torrential downpour that lashed the eastern metropolis.Much like the end of the Durga Puja festival, the buzz in tea stalls, local sweet shops and fast food joints went missing. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedBrazil revellers, who until Friday’s reversal were happy at the fact that Argentina had lost to France in the round of 16, disappeared from the streets while jersey sellers at Maidan market were counting their losses.”Like every four years, we had ordered Brazil and Argentina jerseys the most. Yes, there was demand for Portugal as well with Ronaldo jerseys being sold a lot. But since their exit and Germany’s too, Brazil shirts were in huge demand after their win over Mexico (in the pre-quarters). With Brazil gone, we fear a downturn in jersey sales,” a Maidan market shopkeeper said. Also Read – Naihati: 10 councillors return to TMC from BJPArgentina supporters rubbed salt in Brazil counterparts’ wounds by bursting crackers the moment referee Mazic Milorad of Serbia blew the final whistle. Social media groups were awash with taunts between supporters of both parties.”We are not exactly happy but there is a sense of satisfaction as they were celebrating Argentina’s exit like Brazil have won the World Cup. Belgium showed them their place,” said Sandip Misra, an Argentina supporter.”You can say that the World Cup for Bengalis is over,” current India full-back Pritam Kotal said. “For Bengalis, I have grown up watching people support either Brazil or Argentina in my neighbourhood. So the charm will be missing now,” added Kotal, a Brazil supporter.An own goal from Fernandinho and a beauty of a strike from Kevin De Bruyne in the first half helped Belgium subdue Neymar’s Brazil for whom Raphael Augusto scored in the second period. This is the first time that neither Brazil, Germany or Argentinahave reached the semi-finals of the World Cup.last_img read more

first_imgBlue Fin 21 uses sonar pulses to discover whether there are artificial or human made objects on the sea floor and then uses the pulses to develop a high resolution maps. “We haven’t had a single detection in six days so it’s time to go underwater … The deployment of the underwater autonomous vehicle allows us to take a step forward,” Mr Houston said. Meanwhile, the head of Australia’s international search agency, Angus Houston said that the large gap in between signals had justified changing the search focus to under the sea. Blue Fin 21 will be sent from Australia’s ship the Ocean Shield and will be sent on 24 hour search cycles, according to the Guardian Australia. The previous series of pings had allowed the international search team to narrow the search area. “It was chosen for its speed of deployment, and principally the mission right now is to localise. It’s got a tactical capability to do those debris fields but it’s certainly not the tool I would use to do a very, very broad area sonar scan,” Mr Matthews said. Mr Houston also said that an oil slick had been detected near 5.5km near the detection of the latest black box ‘ping’ but that the international search centre was still waiting on the results. The results of each search cycle will then be analysed by crew of the Ocean Shield, along with a private special-ops team from the US Navy contractor Phoenix International. Source = ETB News: Tom Neale US Navy Captain, Mark Matthews, said that Blue Fin 21 was chosen because of its ability to be deployed quickly. Australian authorities will deploy the amphibious vehicle Blue Fin 21 to search the Indian Ocean for the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, after they could not detect any more black box signals from the sea.last_img read more
