Worker dies after being pinned by machine at Alberta chemical plant

first_imgRED DEER, Alta. – An investigation by Occupational Health and Safety is underway after a worker was killed in an accident at an Alberta plant operated by Dow Canada.The department says the accident happened sometime between Tuesday evening and early Wednesday morning at a polyethylene plant northeast of Red Deer.Trent Bancarz, an OHS spokesman, says the 47-year-old man was pinned by a machine he was using.The equipment — known as a drum dumper — loads material into a hopper.The victim died at the scene and his identity has not been released.OHS has placed a stop-use order on the dumper.Bancarz said the order is usually done for two reasons.“We may issue it because (the equipment) is not safe to use at the time, or so investigators can take measurements and examine things without the machine being altered from the state it was in at the time of the incident,” he said.Dow said in a statement that the company is “deeply saddened by the tragic loss of a colleague, and we are working closely with all parties involved to gather more information and learn from this tragic incident.”The plant site, known as Dow Prentiss, has more than 120 employees.last_img read more

The NBAs Southeast Division Is Historically Awful

The current combined record of the Hornets, Heat, Washington Wizards, Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks is just 119-159. That works out to a 0.428 combined winning percentage — worse than all but eight other divisions since the 2004-05 season. So in terms of the ability of its teams to actually win basketball games, the 2018-19 Southeast ranks among the bottom 10 percent of all divisions since the most recent league expansion. 52004-05Southeast0.417 2005-06NorthwestNuggets0.537 For the most part, divisions in the NBA have become more a formality than anything else. It’s been four years since the league last guaranteed division winners home-court advantage during their first-round playoff series, and it’s been 12 years since division winners were guaranteed a top-three seed regardless of their record.1A division winner was still guaranteed at least a No. 4 seed until the 2016 playoffs. These days, the top team in a division is not guaranteed to make the playoffs at all — the top eight teams from each conference advance to the postseason regardless of division alignment.If we’re being completely honest, it sure seems like the only real use the league has for divisions these days is scheduling.2The NBA schedule works the same way every season: Each NBA team plays each of the 15 teams from the opposite conference twice a year, the four other teams from its own division four times a year, and the 10 teams from the two remaining divisions in its conference either three or four times in a given season, with the determination being made seemingly at random, though it is in actuality largely based on arena availability. The only other benefit appears to be the occasional excuse to make fun of the lonely division winner banners that hang in the rafters of Madison Square Garden.But this season, one of the league’s six divisions really stands out — and not for a good reason. Not a single one of the teams in the Southeast is above .500, with the Charlotte Hornets sitting in first place at 27-28.No division winner has finished below .500 under the NBA’s current alignment, which was established in 2004 when the league expanded to 30 teams and split them into six divisions to accommodate the then-expansion Charlotte Bobcats. Since Charlotte re-entered the league, the worst division winners were the 2005-06 Denver Nuggets, the 2006-07 Miami Heat and the Southeast’s winner from a year ago, the 2017-18 Heat, which each finished with 44 wins and a 0.537 winning percentage.Only 14 division winners (including this year’s Hornets and Houston Rockets, who are leading their divisions) since 2004 have finished with a winning percentage south of 0.600 — otherwise known as the teams that won fewer than 50 games (or the lockout-shortened season equivalent) and still managed to win their division. 12009-10Atlantic0.385 2016-17SoutheastWizards0.598 32015-16Atlantic0.407 Source: Basketball-Reference.com 52004-05AtlanticCeltics0.549 102013-14Central0.0-2.314 12018-19SoutheastHornets0.491 2006-07SoutheastHeat0.537 Top 10 worst collective records among NBA divisions since the league expanded in 2004 82005-06Northwest0.424 92018-19Southeast0.428 The Southeast is even worse when you account for scheduleThe worst NBA divisions by Simple Rating System and point differential since the league expanded in 2004 62017-18Southeast0.420 Source: Basketball-Reference.com Despite the truly historic nature of the Southeast’s horribleness, the division is pretty much guaranteed to get at least one playoff team this season, sparing it the ignominy of being the first NBA division in history to entirely miss the postseason. The dreadful Bulls, Cavaliers and Knicks will surely finish with the three worst records in the conference, which means the worst the Southeast champ can do is finish eighth in the East and earn the right to be smoked by the Bucks or Raptors in the first round of the postseason. (Even with the newly flattened lottery odds, those three awful teams also have a considerably better chance to land the No. 1 pick and the right to select Duke superstar Zion Williamson, while the Hawks, Magic and Wizards will more likely be left picking in the mid-to-late lottery, possibly dooming the Southeast to even more mediocrity in the future.)Meanwhile, only one of the Clippers, Kings and Lakers is likely to be headed to the postseason in the West, despite all three teams being projected to finish with better records than every single team in the Southeast. If the season ends with the 38-win Hornets in the playoffs and, say, the 41-win Lakers staying home, perhaps the NBA will finally decide to move to an open-seeded playoff system — with the best 16 teams making it to the dance regardless of conference alignment.Check out our latest NBA predictions. 82015-16SoutheastHeat0.585 2005-06AtlanticNets0.598 RANKSeasonDIVISIONWIN pct. 62006-07AtlanticRaptors0.573 72018-19SouthwestRockets0.582 22013-14Atlantic-2.7-3.212 102011-12AtlanticCeltics0.591 RANKSeasonDIVISIONPt Diff.SRS 102008-09Pacific0.429 112017-18NorthwestTrail Blazers0.598 22017-18SoutheastHeat0.537 42009-10Atlantic-3.0-3.066 52018-19Southeast-2.6-3.050 42005-06Atlantic0.415 22014-15Atlantic0.395 82008-09Pacific-2.3-2.428 The season isn’t over yet, though, which means there’s still time for the Southeast to get even worse. Washington just traded away Otto Porter and Markieff Morris at the deadline after its star, John Wall, suffered a torn Achilles tendon that will keep him out for at least a year. Miami, likewise, shipped away rotation player Tyler Johnson and received very little on-court help in return. The Hornets did not add Marc Gasol, as had been heavily rumored, while the Hawks are finalizing a buyout with Jeremy Lin, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, and could potentially do the same with Dewayne Dedmon. The Magic added former No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz but dealt away Jonathon Simmons to do it, and Fultz is more of a future asset than a present one, anyway.Accordingly, the FiveThirtyEight NBA predictions expect this division to fall off slightly: The division’s combined projected winning percentage is just 0.420, which would rank sixth-worst among the group of 10 teams listed above. Additionally, the Hornets are projected to win the division with a record of just 38-44, which would fall an incredible six wins short of the 44-win 2018 and 2007 Heat and 2006 Nuggets.What’s remarkable about the Southeast, though, is that each one of these teams has managed to post a losing record despite the opportunity to rack up wins against other Southeast teams. As a result, the win-loss records might actually undersell how bad the division really is. Consider two more reliable indicators of team quality: point differential and Basketball-Reference.com’s Simple Rating System (SRS). Point differential has been shown time and again to be more predictive of a team’s future performance than actual win-loss record, while SRS takes point differential and adjusts for strength of schedule, then scales that adjustment so the league average is 0 and every point represents one point above or below average.The 2018-19 Southeast division has the fifth-worst combined per-game point differential of the 30-team era. And when you adjust for those five teams’ relatively soft schedules, they’ve actually been outscored by 3.050 points per game, seemingly confirming this as the fifth-worst division (out of 90) since the then-Bobcats and now-Hornets came into the league. And given the aforementioned roster realities, it’s not at all difficult to see the Southeast sinking further into the depths of despair.

The next stop is Stis Pargas ton Aniforo

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek traditional music travelled along the Frankston train line this month, together with musicians Joseph Tsompanopoulo, John Kostaraki, Dimitri Hoplaro and the dancing teacher of the Greek Community of Melbourne Nick Papaefthimiou, as they sang Greek traditional songs and played gaida, lyra and kaval, koutalia and ntahare on the first occasion and on the second occasion violin, lute, koutalia and ntahare. The ‘Multicultural Express’ has secured a grant through the Unity Through Partnerships Program, which is funded by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship. The goal is to celebrate diversity along the Frankston train line by showcasing community-based music, food, dancing and cultural experiences. According to Nick Papaefthimiou, the passengers reacted in a positive way; on the first occasion an Asian schoolgirl returning from her music lesson pulled out her violin and joined in and a young guy, who initially looked a little intimidating, asked to play the toumberleki. As Nick describes: “He was fantastic, he was half Greek, half African. We had another young schoolgirl, a Russian Jewish girl with her mother, also join in on toumbeleki. On the second outing we had a teenage girl with an intellectual disability jump up and dance and had the whole train carriage clapping. We have had over 30,000 views of the videos on Facebook and the videos have been shared by many people. Two young girls from Greece commented that they want to move to that city.”Over the last four weeks, many alternative cultural events have taken place to help promote Greek culture to broader Australian society. The First Friday Dance Club, held at Queensbridge Square at Southbank Boulevard, is an initiative of the City of Melbourne’s Arts and Participation program and is supported by Outer Urban Projects. The program provides opportunities for people to come together to learn, share and experience dance. Each month a different dance genre is presented. Ιn 32 degree heat on a Friday afternoon, dozens of people, all of whom were non-Greek, danced in the street under the instructions of dancing teacher Nick Papaefthimiou, who showed them more than forty dances and drank litres of water while dancing in his Greek traditional costume. People were exposed to music and dances from all regions of Greece and were able to experience the diversity of Greece folk traditions.In another event, as part of the Thessaloniki-Melbourne sister city 30 year celebrations, the dancing groups started Sunday’s festivities at Federation Square with musicians and dancers playing music and dancing along the street from Melbourne Town Hall to Federation Square. “The atmosphere was fantastic, with people of all ethnicities joining in,” says Nick.“Unfortunately,” he states, “a vast majority, if not all of Melbourne’s Greek events are aimed at first and second generation Greeks. When dance groups do perform at other events there is generally no opportunity for the audience to jump in and participate. “With Bollywood and Latin dance classes they are full of people from other ethnicities – this is something that has not been achieved by the Greek community. With examples like this we can see that we can showcase our traditions authentically and not modernised in a tacky fashion and they will still appeal to non-Greeks.”Nick Papaefthimiou is very passionate about Greek culture and has been studying the Greek folk tradition and dancing for many years. For the past ten years he has been teaching dancing at the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria as well as working closely with the Adelaide Greek Community (GOCSA). “They started with fewer than 10 people,” he says, “but now have multiple age divisions, and have invested over $70,000 on costumes. Each year we go over and assist in their concert, also giving young musicians a chance to learn and play more songs. I have also worked with the Canberra Greek community dance group for a number of years.” Each year at the Antipodes Festival, Nick and his dancing group try to showcase things that have not been seen before, such as Apokriatika traditions, Thracian dances from the Black Sea, dances from Asia Minor and the islands. For next year, he reveals they have been working on various forms of tsamika, many of which don’t resemble what we refer to as ‘normal tsamika’. “In general,” he says, “most people know the zorba dance and that’s about it. But we as dancing teachers, executive producers of radio stations or presidents of associations have big responsibilities to keep well informed and stay in touch, to collaborate and share ideas with other people from the association down the street, other states and countries, in order to come up with better ideas and new things. “Every day you hear of Greek associations that are closing down. Is anyone wondering why? Is anyone doing anything?” he wonders. “The light at the end of the tunnel may be the new Cultural Centre at the Greek Community in Melbourne. We hope that with the new wave of migrants a fresh injection of life will come into the community. We were lucky to have had Dimitri Hoplaros here for four years.” “Once upon a time,” Nick continues, “children fitted in around parents’ lives and kids had either soccer or dancing as activities. Now parents fit their lives around their children and their multiple activities, which if they are lucky include one day of Greek school where, in three to four hours, they are expected to learn the language and dancing. “If kids don’t fit in with the traditional or folk type of being Greek then they say ‘O Ellinismos den me ekfrazi emena’ (‘Greek does not identify me’) and they become Aussies. They visit Mykonos, Santorini, Paros and Ios when they go to Greece, they go to the Full Moon Party in Bali and they have no idea about the River Party in Nestorio Kastorias, the Houdetsi festival in Crete and countless summer outdoor concerts in every region of Greece.”Our conversation makes me wonder, though, about the final destination … hopefully non-stop culture (and lots of work!).last_img read more

US stocks hit record highs continuing rally

first_imgThe Dow Jones industrial average and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index closed at record highs Monday as the market delivered its fourth gain in four trading days.Pharmaceutical and technology stocks were among the big risers, while shares in energy companies fell sharply as the decline in oil prices deepened. Discouraging data on U.S. home sales failed to derail the “Santa” rally, what traders often call a pre-Christmas advance.Trading volume was lighter than usual as many investors looked ahead to the Christmas holiday. “We’re getting a good Santa Claus rally,” said Sam Stovall, U.S. equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ. After a strong finish last week, investors remained mostly in a buying mood Monday. The major stock indexes drifted between small gains and losses in the morning, as traders digested the latest housing data. The National Association of Realtors reported that sales of previously occupied homes fell 6.1 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.93 million. That’s the slowest pace in six months. By late morning, the major indexes were rising and holding on to gains that were modest, but good enough for a new set of record highs.last_img read more

Walker Begich asked to compromise to prevent Dunleavy governorship

first_imgLibertarian Billy Toien, Democrat Mark Begich and independent Gov. Bill Walker receive audience applause at the end of the Get Out the Native Vote candidate forum on Tuesday in Juneau. The microphone on the right is for Republican Mike Dunleavy, who didn’t attend. (Photo by Andrew Kitchenman/KTOO and Alaska Public Media)Independent Gov. Bill Walker and Democratic candidate for governor Mark Begich answered a question Tuesday about how they’re competing for the same voters. The exchange occurred at the Get Out the Native Vote forum for candidates for governor in Juneau.Listen nowJuneau Rep. Sam Kito III read the question from a member of the audience. Republican candidate Mike Dunleavy wasn’t there.“Please address the fact that there are two candidate vying for the same pool of votes,” Kito read. “Has a compromise been discussed to ensure that no-show Dunleavy does not win by default of vote splitting? And I’m just reading a question provided by the audience.”Begich, a former U.S. senator, said the candidates must earn every vote. He said the voters will have a choice about who can win and who has the best plan of action for the state.“What’s so great about election is you – it’s in your hands,” Begich said. “It’s not in ours. It’s in yours. I think whoever gets to 38 or so percent wins this race.”Walker said he built a cabinet that drew from the entire state because he didn’t discriminate based on partisan affiliation. He said the cabinet spent the first term addressing the state’s budget crisis.“You know we have wrestled with the fiscal issue, but we wrestled it to the ground,” Walker said. “We stayed here; we didn’t quit. We showed up and we did the hard work.”Walker said he’s angry that Dunleavy didn’t attend.“That’s very disrespectful,” Walker said. “Neither he nor his lieutenant governor (candidate Kevin Meyer) had the courtesy of attending today. I’m embarrassed as an Alaskan that we have somebody running for this office who will not show up in this room.”Asked for a reaction, Dunleavy emailed a statement:“Bill Walker should be more embarrassed by his failed record of a weak economy, vetoed PFDs, and skyrocketing crime than by my campaign schedule.I lived in rural Alaska for 19 years with Alaska Native people. It’s where I met my wife, Rose, of 31 years and where our three daughters were born.From a horrific public safety record, to dismal educational outcomes, to low employment and the theft of PFDs, Bill Walker has failed rural Alaska.”Dunleavy’s campaign said he had multiple meetings in Anchorage Tuesday.Libertarian candidate Billy Toien slapped his campaign bumper sticker over Dunleavy’s nameplate. Toien, a hotel concierge, said he doesn’t have a problem with vote splitting.“I think it’s all about voting your conscience,” Toein said. “It isn’t about who is or isn’t running. Win, lose or draw, if everybody decided to throw their vote away by voting for me, I would win.”Dunleavy did attend a candidate forum at the Anchorage Aviation Museum on Monday.last_img read more

Official El Salvador not falling apart

first_imgNo related posts. From the print editionWASHINGTON, D.C. – The top adviser to President Mauricio Funes of El Salvador says his boss was sworn into office in an atmosphere of violence and economic despair – but that with three years down and two to go, El Salvador’s 6.1 million people finally have a leader who gets it.“When we came to power, the government was practically in bankruptcy. We had enough money only for two months’ salary,” said Alexander Segovia, speaking May 18 at the Council of the Americas in Washington. “We knew we would be governing in the midst of capitalism’s deepest crisis in 80 years. We had to be realistic.”The Oxford-trained economist said it was ironic that before the March 2009 election in which Funes – running on the leftist FMLN ticket – defeated Rodrigo Ávila of the right-wing ARENA party, his detractors repeatedly accused Funes of being a communist who would distance El Salvador from the United States.“The opposition warned that if a leftist government came to power, we’d have absolute chaos, that capital would fly out of the country, that we’d do crazy things,” he recalled. “But we were always clear that this was going to be a safe and secure change. After three years, all these perceptions have been shown to be unfounded. We had a democratic transition, we’ve started a new era, and we’ve laid the foundations to get out of this historic quagmire. We now know the country isn’t going to fall apart.”On the contrary, said Segovia, the Funes government inherently understands that private investment is key for generating employment and boosting El Salvador’s sluggish economy. In 2011, gross domestic product grew by only 1.5 percent, with 2 percent growth projected for this year. But that’s a whole lot better than 2009, he said, when the economy contracted by 3.1 percent.“El Salvador had the lowest level of growth in Central America despite all the reforms,” said Segovia. “We have pretty much tried everything there is to do. We’ve opened the economy and we’ve signed free trade agreements, but we still have an economy that does not grow at the rate it needs to grow. We’re in a vicious cycle, and if we don’t get out of that cycle, any government will be very fragile. We must generate a process of high, sustainable growth. That’s going to be our primary challenge over the next 24 months.” The Funes government’s other big headache is violent crime. Last year, El Salvador’s homicide rate exceeded 70 per 100,000 inhabitants, or about 18 killings a day – second in the world only to neighboring Honduras. Last month, the country marked its first murder-free day since Funes was sworn into office nearly three years earlier.The reason: In early March, El Salvador’s two most violent gangs – Barrio 18 and the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) – agreed to stop killing each other’s members. They also vowed to suspend attacks on police officers and military forces, and to no longer recruit new members at schools. Segovia denied media reports that the Funes government had cut a deal with the gangs, 30 of whose leaders were immediately transferred from maximum-security prisons to a common prison following the announcement of the truce.“The government has not made any agreements and will not make any agreements with gangs,” he said. “What we have done is facilitate the dialogue that the Catholic Church is involved in, because we think this is very important. We are saving 300 lives a month, so that alone means it’s worth the effort.”The drop in violence has also been good for business, he said.“Our biggest obstacles to growth have been low productivity and insecurity, especially extortion. A big company can deal with crime; they can hire security firms. But small companies have a harder time. Fortunately, the scenario has changed completely. This initiative by the church began with a lot of skepticism, but it’s now an opportunity we have to take advantage of. This is something we could not have imagined only four or five months ago.”El Salvador registered 255 murders in March, 147 in April and 76 in the first 15 days of May. That’s down 60 percent from the first months of 2012.Great news, Segovia said, “but what happens when the gangs decide they don’t want the ceasefire anymore? We have a great opportunity we haven’t had before. The church has said there’s a social dimension underlying the violence, so let’s try to see if we can build a state policy around security and crime, which we haven’t had before. If society makes a commitment and starts to build programs to deal with youths at risk, we’ll start to have solutions.”Even so, Segovia admitted that his government would not be able to eliminate the gangs without bringing down El Salvador’s notoriously high youth-unemployment rate.“There are lots of doubts, of course, if this ceasefire is sustainable. But the truth is, we’re already seeing some results,” he said. “A lot of people believed you had to have an iron-fist policy, going after criminals and repressing crime. But the issue of crime and security is very complex and has a number of facets. Everyone realizes that simplistic analyses about the origin of crime are not working. We’re starting to understand the issue in all its complexity.” Segovia assured his audience that the Funes government wouldn’t let its guard down when it comes to organized crime and drug trafficking.“We’ll continue to go after these groups, but what we need is a national agreement on employment, because if we have enough jobs, we’ll shut off the faucet of all the young people who get into these activities because they don’t have opportunities,” he said. “We have to show results now. We can’t wait 24 months.”In answer to a question posed by The Tico Times, the presidential adviser disputed suggestions that El Salvador has seen a gradual militarization of its security forces.“We don’t agree with that thesis,” he said. “The constitution is not being violated, and we don’t see this as militarization. The constitution gives an exceptional role to accompany police in security situations. We found a country in crisis when we came in. The investment we made in police was just so that they could have minimum conditions to do their work. They were without vehicles, radio and food. It was a police force completely without resources; the criminals were riding in 4x4s and policemen were on bicycles. We can’t continue that way.”Segovia added: “People sometimes forget that before the peace accords [which ended El Salvador’s long-running civil war in 1992], police had chiefs from the military and nobody said anything back then. Now, the police forces in El Salvador are no longer infiltrated by organized crime. The military did take over for a little while in this process, but how else do you compete with organized crime? Unlike our neighboring countries, it’s very clear that our national civilian police are not infiltrated by organized crime, though our police do need to be strengthened institutionally, and that’s a challenge for the future.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Syrian opposition pushes for interim government

first_img“We are in desperate need for an interim government, a recognized civilian entity that can restore law and order and secure basic services to liberated areas,” said Walid al-Bunni, a spokesman for the Western-backed Syrian National Coalition. “Otherwise we are headed toward a very bad situation.”State institutions have all but collapsed in areas where the Syrian military withdrew, leaving many communities to fend for themselves with little electricity and sometimes no running water. Islamic courts have been set up to resolve local disputes, often one of the few vestiges of any sort of administration.The idea of an interim government that would help administer the large swaths of land in the north and northeast that has been seized by the rebels has been floating around for more than a year, but divisions among members Assad’s foes have kept it from happening. Opposition groups and even members of the same groups disagree over fundamental issues such as whether to hold negotiations with the regime or whether Assad should be allowed to be part of the transition.It is unclear how much sway, if any, interim opposition leaders would hold over the rebels in Syria, where local units made up of tens of thousands of autonomous fighters have very little central organization or command structure. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Al-Khatib provoked a backlash last month when he offered to hold talks with members of the regime if it would help end the bloodshed, which the U.N. says has killed more than 70,000 people. His offer marked a departure from the mainstream opposition’s insistence that Assad step down before any talks. That angered some of his colleagues who accused him of acting unilaterally.Ahead of the Istanbul meeting, American and French diplomats said that the U.S., Russia and France are working together to try to bring the Syrian government and the SNC to the table together, hoping to reach agreement on a government with wide executive powers that would pave the way for a peaceful transition.On Wednesday, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the U.S. was trying to help foster a “preliminary conversation” among Syrians about how to fill a transitional government.“We are not going to decide. The Syrians are going to decide,” she told reporters. “We are encouraging the Russians to see if the Syrian government can put forward anybody who would be acceptable.”French Foreign Ministry spokesman Vincent Floreani echoed the U.S. position Thursday in an online briefing. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) BEIRUT (AP) – The main Syrian opposition group is pushing to form a breakaway interim government to rein in chaotic rebel-held areas in the north. But it faces objections from within its own ranks amid fears that such a move is premature and could lead to the fragmentation of the country.The differing views will be put to the test at a two-day meeting starting Monday in Istanbul, where supporters hope to name a prime minister to oversee the formation of an interim government. Two previous attempts were postponed over seemingly intractable differences. Organizers say consensus has been building as the Syrian civil war enters its third year. Parents, stop beating yourself up Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project “The Syrian drama can only be solved by putting in place a political solution that passes by dialogue between the opposition and members of the regime who do not have blood on their hands,” he said, adding that Assad himself could “not be a party to these discussions.”The comments came as French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said France and Britain are ready to help arm Syrian rebel fighters even if other European Union countries disagree.Some international diplomats warn that more weapons are the last thing that Syria needs after the bitter violence that has wracked the country since the uprising against Assad began in March 2011 and eventually escalated into an armed rebellion in response to a brutal government crackdown of protests. Others believe that only when Assad feels militarily cornered would he agree to come to the negotiating table.Fabius said France and Britain are pushing for an urgent EU meeting to try to persuade the bloc to lift an arms embargo on Syria. “Lifting the embargo is one of the only means left to make things move politically” in Syria, he said on France-Info radio.While they welcomed the French and British comments Thursday, some Syrian opposition leaders accused the West of trying to “impose” an interim government that includes members of Assad’s regime and said this should hasten formation of their own government. Top Stories “This is a very dangerous thing,” said Bassam al-Dada, a Turkey-based Free Syrian Army official. “By agreeing to have any member of Assad’s regime in an interim government, we would be giving the killer legitimacy.”But Mounzir Makhous, a coalition member who was appointed as ambassador to France in November, said an interim civilian government would not only help restore law and order, but it could work on freeing up frozen regime and state assets to help provide the rebels with weapons and pay their salaries.It could also work on securing income and other support from strategic facilities recently seized by rebels in the north and east, including oil fields in the oil-rich Deir el-Zour and Hassakeh provinces near the Iraqi and Turkish borders, the country’s biggest hyrdroelectric dam and grain silos.Most war weary Syrians were skeptical, saying the Syrian opposition has lost credibility because of the constant bickering.“For God’s sake I beg you, for once agree on something, this is not the time for disputes. People are dying,” said one response to the meeting’s announcement on the SNC’s Facebook page.___Associated Press writers Bradley Klapper in Washington and Angela Charlton in Paris contributed to this report. Sponsored Stories But SNC officials say that as the opposition seizes more territory, the need for an interim government has become more pressing and consensus has been building on the need to control the growing chaos and lawlessness.The U.S. has in the past been lukewarm to the idea of a unilateral announcement of an interim government by the divided Syrian opposition, saying the focus should be on uniting in a transitional government that could facilitate a handover of power and take over if Assad steps down. The international community endorsed a broad and ambiguous proposal last year calling for Assad supporters and opponents to propose representatives for the government, with each side able to veto candidates.SNC leader Mouaz al-Khatib, a 52-year-old preacher turned activist has suggested that he himself is opposed to the formation of an interim government, fearing that it would deepen Syrian divisions.“He and others are worried that a breakaway interim government would consecrate the country’s divide between two governments, one in liberated territories and another in areas under Assad’s control,” al-Bunni said. “Either we convince him or he convinces us at the meeting in Istanbul.” Comments   Share   The difference between men and women when it comes to painlast_img read more

set up a nine-member panel dominated by the BJP to probe the alleged breach of Parliament security by AAP’s Bhagwant Mann and "advised" him not to attend the House till the issue is resolved Upset by the decision Mann and the Aam Aadmi Party termed it a "political conspiracy" to malign the AAP’s image Mann said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should also be asked to appear before the committee as he allowed Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI to probe the terror attack on the IAF base at Pathankot File image of Bhagwant Mann CNN-News18 Addressing the Lok Sabha as soon as it met after a weekend break Mahajan said taking audio video footage of security zones in Parliament by Punjab’s Sangrur MP Mann on 21 July and putting it up on social networking sites put the "security of the Parliament in peril" "I have decided to constitute a nine-member Inquiry Committee to probe this incident and submit its report The Inquiry Committee shall inquire into the serious security implications and related aspects arising out of the conduct of the audio visual recording" Mahajan said Mann has been asked to appear before the panel by 1030 am on 26 July and make his submission The Speaker said the panel should submit its report by 3 August and till then Mann was "advised" not to attend the session "The Committee is requested to examine the matter expeditiously and is authorized to follow its own procedure The report of the Committee will be presented to the House for consideration" Mahajan said "In view of the seriousness of the matter Mann is advised not to attend the sittings of the House until a decision is taken in the matter" Describing Parliament as the "sanctum sanctorum" of democracy Mahajan recalled that on 13 December 2001 security personnel had sacrificed their lives for protecting Parliament and after that the entire security system was reviewed and overhauled Therefore the "act of the member" of making an audio visual recording of the security checks inside Parliament and posting it on social media has "put the security of the Parliament in peril" she said Mahajan said she had consulted leaders of all political parties and everyone supported her on this issue The nine-member panel is headed by Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kirit Somaiya and includes Anandrao Adsul (Shiv Sena) Meenakshi Lekhi Satya Pal Singh (both BJP) B Mahtab (BJD) Ratna De Nag (Trinamool Congress) Thota Narasimhan (TDP) KC Venugopal (Congress) and P Venugopal (AIADMK) The panel has also been asked to "suggest remedial measures" so that such episodes are not repeated Mann who was not in the house when Speaker announced her decision looked upset when reporters sought his comment "When the Prime Minister allowed Pakistan’s security agency inside the Pathankot base was not the country’s security put at stake" he asked and demanded that Modi should also be asked to appear before the committee "He should also be suspended from Parliament" he added Terming the Speaker’s decision "one sided" Mann said: "It was a political conspiracy to malign AAP as these parties are scared because we are going to get a majority in the Punjab assembly polls" He reiterated that his intention vis-a-vis the live video was not to jeopardise Parliament’s security "I wanted to make an educational video I wanted to make the people aware how their grievances are selected through lucky draw" he said AAP leader Sanjay Singh defended Mann and blamed the central government for the action taken against the MP "The suspension of Mann from Parliament is like strangling the common man in a democracy" he said Written by Inder Malhotra | Updated: November 13 2014 10:31 am The wide world knows that Nehru was a strikingly handsome man with a disarming smile who exuded a magic charm that swiftly won over individuals and crowds alike Related News In a series on Jawaharlal Nehru it does not seem fair to concentrate only on his role as the builder of modern and democratic India during the 17 long and formative years when he was the country’s first prime minister There ought to be at least one human touch at some stage After deep thought I have chosen an aspect that is discussed rather rarely The wide world knows that Nehru was a strikingly handsome man with a disarming smile who exuded a magic charm that swiftly won over individuals and crowds alike In the words of one of his earliest biographers Michael Brecher there was hardly any difference between Nehru’s photographs at 20 and 60 Evidently his face caught up with his age only after the shattering effect of the brief but brutal border war with China Surprisingly even Acharya Kripalani once said: “It is difficult to compete with the prime minister For he is a darling of the masses and to women he is Prince Charming” Also Nehru had been a widower since 1936 when his long-ailing wife Kamala died in a sanatorium in Switzerland Moreover as he often admitted regretfully well before her passing he had become so busy with politics and rushing from one end of the country to the other that he neglected his wife and other members of the family His loneliness had to have certain consequences and that is where Lord and Lady Mountbatten come in They had stayed in India for no more than 15 months in 1947-48 But they especially Edwina Mountbatten had instantly developed a warm cordial and lasting rapport with Nehru Probably she filled a void in his life In any case during the 12 years that she lived after leaving India Edwina came to Delhi twice a year and stayed at the prime minister’s house For his part whenever in Britain Nehru saw her over the weekend at the Mountbatten country house Broadlands On one occasion the British press published a photograph of Edwina opening the door to Nehru clad in a nightgown In the circumstances is it any surprise that “an enduring love affair” between the two has been widely written on Hundreds of Nehru’s letters to Edwina have been published; hers to him seem to have disappeared Other books on the subject of women in Nehru’s life — one of them written by MO Mathai at one time his most trusted and powerful aide who had to be sacked for a lot of wrongdoing in 1958 — speak of his protracted romance with Padmaja Naidu a daughter of the nation’s “nightingale” Sarojini Naidu who was a poet as well as president of the Congress Khushwant Singh is one of the many authors who insist that Nehru also had a torrid affair with beautiful Shraddha Mata whom many worshipped as a “godwoman” On the other hand we must take note of what Amrita Sher-Gil — an Indian artist so great that even though she died at a very young age a road in Delhi has been named after her — is reported to have said Amrita herself had had numerous affairs of which to her credit she never made a secret One of her partners the famous British writer and journalist Malcolm Muggeridge has written about the “animal intensity” of her personality Many had questioned her about Nehru Her answer always was that she would stay away from him because “Jawaharlal is too handsome and too good a man” However a love affair lasting or fleeting is one thing and a deep friendly relationship between a man and a woman without a trace of sensuousness quite another In Nehru’s case I witnessed it at the end of the first recital of the melody queen MS Subbulakshmi that I heard in Delhi in the early 1950s After cheering her wildly the audience had begun to disperse when Nehru who was present throughout ascended the stage He held MS’s hand said that he hadn’t words enough to praise her performance and asked: “Compared with you what am I A mere prime minister without an iota of your talent” He treated Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay and some other women friends the same way The masterpiece on the subject however is narrated by John Kenneth Galbraith America’s economic guru and his country’s ambassador to India in the early 1960s At one time the famous and highly attractive Hollywood actress Angie Dickinson was in Delhi and staying at the ambassador’s residence Constantly she told her host that her visit to India would be pointless if she couldn’t meet Nehru So the ambassador sent a note to the prime minister asking whether he could spare some time to see Dickinson To his surprise he received a phone call immediately telling him to bring the lady along right away While ushering them into the PM’s office the aide whispered to Galbraith that Nehru had only 20 minutes Actually the meeting lasted nearly two hours with the prime minister and the star absorbed in their lively conversation As Angie and Galbraith were about to leave Nehru asked her: “Does it ever happen that a role you play briefly becomes a part of your personality” Laughingly she replied: “I hope not Mr Prime Minister because the last role I played was that of a prostitute” Let me round this up with what happened when in November 1961 Nehru visited John F Kennedy at the White House He was very tired and somewhat distracted and therefore talks between the two leaders were desultory Kennedy — who in his inaugural address had spoken of the “soaring idealism of Nehru” — was disappointed Arthur J Schlesinger Harvard historian and Kennedy’s aide at the time commented that the prime minister had brightened up “only after the first lady came in” JFK:
