Thapas exit deals another blow to GJMs Bimal faction

first_imgDarjeeling: The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (Bimal Gurung faction) suffered another setback with Rohit Thapa, the organisational secretary of Dooars tendering in his resignation from the party.Talking to mediapersons in Siliguri on Monday, Thapa stated that he has resigned as the party has been taking decisions without consulting the leaders and supporters on ground zero. “Since 2008 I have supported and worked on the behest of Bimal Gurung in Dooars. We have faced so many problems and oppositions yet have worked for the party. However, now decision are being taken unilaterally from Delhi without any consultations,” stated Thapa.

This time also we are ready to support Bista but where is the Gorkhaland issue. We have supported Bimal Gurung just because of the Gorkhaland issue.” Thapa stated that they are not willing to support Gurung’s politics of self survival. “We were having an all-party meet to decide on a consensus candidate. Suddenly, the GNLF left for Delhi. Suddenly, we get an audio clip from Gurung stating that an alliance has been forged with the GNLF and the BJP and to extend all possible support,” stated Thapa.

We have been kept in the dark constantly,” Thapa said. Without naming the BJP he stated that they are adopting double standards on Gorkhaland. “From the Hills till Sukna its Gorkhaland and once they come to the plains Gorkhaland disappears,” added Thapa. When questioned on whether he would join any other party, Thapa stated that he has not decided on this yet. Recently Swaraj Thapa, a close confidant of Bimal Gurung and advisor, had also resigned from the party.last_img read more

Canfor reports 895million firstquarter loss revenue down from year ago

Companies in this story: (TSX:CFP) VANCOUVER — Canfor Corp. reported a loss in its most recent quarter compared with a profit a year ago as revenue fell.The forestry company says it lost $89.5 million or 71 cents per diluted share for the three months ended March 31.That compared with a profit of $112.2 million or 87 cents per diluted share in the same quarter last year.Sales for the first three months of 2019 amounted to $1.15 billion, down from $1.23 billion for the first three months of 2018.On an adjusted basis, Canfor says it lost $36.8 million or 29 cents per diluted share for the quarter compared with an adjusted profit of $145.4 million or $1.13 per diluted share a year earlier.On Monday, Canfor temporarily curtailed operations at its B.C. lumber mills due to low prices and the high cost of fibre. The curtailment is expected to reduce Canfor’s production output by approximately 100 million board feet.“While our B.C. based lumber business experienced significant challenges due to lower than anticipated market prices and difficult operating conditions, our U.S. South and European operations generated solid financial returns,” Canfor chief executive Don Kayne, said in a statement.“We look forward to adding a further 200 million board feet to our U.S. South operations during the second quarter with the upcoming close of the Elliott acquisition, which will help offset the escalating log cost and fibre supply issues impacting our B.C. operations.” The Canadian Press read more

Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia name talks set for next month –

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Personal Envoy Matthew Nimetz added that the venue and time for the talks will be determined at a later date.Representing Greece at the discussions will be Ambassador Adamantios Vassilakis, while the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia will be represented by Ambassador Zoran Jolevski. This will be the first meeting between the parties since the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia instituted proceedings against Greece in November 2008 at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, alleging that Greece blocked its application to join NATO in violation of an agreement between the two countries. When they last met in New York in October, Mr. Nimetz presented a new set of ideas to both sides for their consideration. In the past, the Special Envoy has proposed several compromise names but Skopje and Athens remain far apart on what they consider to be a satisfactory name for the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The Interim Accord of 13 September 1995, which was brokered by the UN, details the difference between the two countries on the issue. It also obliges the two sides to continue negotiations under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General to try to reach agreement. 12 January 2009Talks between the representatives of Greece and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia on the name of the latter country will take place in New York on 11 February, the United Nations official spearheading the discussions announced today. read more

Welcoming Sudans cessation of hostilities Ban urges final peace through national dialogue

In a statement issued this afternoon by his spokesperson, Mr. Ban also welcomed the six-month unilateral cessation of hostilities declared by the Sudan Revolutionary Forces in the Two Areas and Darfur on 28 April 2016. “These commitments should ease the suffering of the people living in the affected areas,” said the statement, through which the UN chief also urged the parties to allow and facilitate urgently needed humanitarian access to these areas.Further to the statement, the Secretary General reiterated his call for the parties which have not signed the Road-map proposed by the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) to do so, and to continue talks with the Sudanese Government and other parties engaged in dialogue inside Sudan to reach agreement on a process for final peace through inclusive national dialogue. read more

60 days in WebOS land an Android users perspective

first_imgWhen I first began this experiment, my Twitter feed exploded from WebOS users imploring me not to judge the OS on the extremely limited hardware that I was using. The Palm Pre Plus is certainly not a new phone after all, and I knew that going into this. Still, the G1 certainly wasn’t a fast phone by any stretch, so I should be able to compare my experiences and move on from there. I find the fact that Palm/HP isn’t moving into the “how big can we make this screen, anyway?” market refreshing. The display on every WebOS device I have used so far has been pleasant in both the sun and indoors. While it’s not the biggest screen out there, text and images still display nicely and it’s just plan nice for a phone to disappear in my pocket from time to time.My Pre came with a Touchstone wireless charger, which I really must say completes the experience with the convenience of just dropping it on the stand to charge instead of hunting for a cord. The keyboard on this Pre was kind of hit or miss. Sometimes it would double-strike and sometimes it would just not recognize the press. This became a problem when entering passwords, and since there is no virtual keyboard you’re essentially stuck. Now, I have seen the newer Pre 2 and Veer, and I know that the keyboard have improved quite a bit, so I won’t hold that against them.The WebOS user experience is refreshing. I was plenty frustrated my first week every time I went for a menu button or to hold the home key to switch apps. I think the gesture controls of WebOS are amazing, and I hope HP continues to grow that feature from its current limitations. When you have more than three cards open, its more work using gesture controls to get to them then it is to switch applications in iOS or Android. That said, I found myself continually impressed with how well my “old slow Pre” switched elegantly from app to app, and even allowed me to close apps under load with ease.For a Google Addict, WebOS has you covered as well as they can I think. From the first time you login you’re given rapid access to Gmail, Google Talk, and the Google Calendar. The WebOS HTML5 support is so good that even the Google Voice website was really easy to use, and the card system allowed me to keep the website open as though it were an app. Unfortunately, the email client doesn’t thread emails like Gmail does, the Google Talk implementation doesn’t sync with your computer. These features remain pretty exclusive to Android, but are really only important for power users I think. All of the major apps that people use today are available for WebOS. Movies by Flixster, Facebook, Twitter clients, and more were all just as nice to use here as anywhere else. It may take a little getting used to, but if Developers continue to support WebOS it would really be quite simple for an Android user to make the change.The hacker/modder community for Android is the definition of fragmented. Team this is at war with Team that. Team so and so stole code from Team those guys and didn’t give credit. Collaboration is almost non-existent and the result is sheer chaos. If you’re not a “techie”, you shouldn’t bother rooting your phone or trying your hand at modding your Android phone. For all of their chaos, however, some really great things have come out of that community. The WebOS modder community is much smaller, and yet I feel like they’ve accomplished more in many aspects.  For starters, they are organized in a near militant fashion. Instead of half a dozen different forums with information and developer scattered about, there’s an app you download to your phone. The app is a step by step manual for downloading and using the tools necessary to start playing with your phone. Within minutes I was cruising an alternative market with apps that were either not vetted for the regular store or developer friendly tools and themes for the phone.This alternative market tapped a nerdy side of me as well because it functioned much like a Linux repository would function, and there was a desktop-side client for installing apps if you were sitting at your computer. The PreWare Homebrew store is just the tip of a very impressive iceberg. Battery management tools, processor clock management, modified kernels, and so much more are available. The Pre Plus was not included in the last update to the latest version of WebOS, but the hombrew guys fixed that quickly, and paired with a clock speed bump it runs really well.  It’s true that there are far fewer WebOS devices, but when you compare just the size of the communities and the quality of the work being generated by these developers, the decrease in signal to noise in the WebOS world shows a clear desire to keep the platform alive.From my conversations with the die hard WebOS fan groups, the belief is that all the platform needs is competitive hardware in order to spring to life. Faster processors, more ram, and a better keyboard will cause people to flock to the OS in their opinion. Well, the first step on that road, being the HP Touchpad, has already come out. Following that, there’s not a whole lot known about the Pre 3 other than it is to be the flagship of the first of the entirely HP owned and manufactured devices. If the tiny but powerful Veer and the absolutely rabid yet organised fan community is any indication of the direction WebOS is heading, the OS could make a rapid recovery under HP’s stewardship.As for me? I’ll be heading back to Android for now, but of all the mobile OS’ out there right now, I think that if the circumstances are right and growth happens quickly, WebOS could definitely be my new home when the Pre 3 comes out. In the mean time, I’ll be putting my hands on a TouchPad soon to compare it to the scattered and messy world of Honeycomb Android. I had resigned myself to be an Android user the day the G1 was announced. I stared at my LG enV 3 with disgust, both at the limitations of my phone and at my carrier. I would spend hours converting music and movies so I could enjoy my phone, and still was really just not feeling it. The G1 represented the entertainment value of a portable media player, the productivity of a smartphone, and the advantages of open source. Since then I’ve used or owned just about every flavor of Android out there, across over 30 devices, and with the exception of the occasional fling with a friends iPhone I had been a loyal Android user. It fit my use case, and I was already deeply inserted into many of Google’s other products.AdChoices广告About six months ago, however, I began to wonder about how the other mobile products had grown. When the HTC HD7 crossed my path a little while ago, I decided to abandon my Nexus S and live among the Windows Phone folks for awhile. The experience was fun, but I eventually went back to my Nexus S. About a month later, I was presented with the opportunity to repeat the experiment, only this time with a Palm Pre Plus. With the HP Touchpad on its way, I wanted to get a feel for how WebOS worked, explore the differences, and take a look into the community that was still loyal to WebOS.last_img read more

State audit finds fault with ESD purchases

first_imgFederal audit findingsAudit reportA state audit has found fault in a Educational Service District 112 program that uses U.S. Department of Agriculture funds to pay for food and snacks served at its child care centers.“The district cannot ensure it obtained the best services at the most competitive price,” according to the audit, released Monday. “However, the products purchased are allowable under the federal program, and as a result, we are not questioning these costs.”Vancouver-based ESD 112 provides a variety of services to school districts and also runs the Southwest Washington Child Care Consortium, which has 24 child care centers.The audit found the Child and Adult Care food program “did not have adequate internal controls to ensure compliance with federal procurement and suspension and debarment requirements,” according to audit findings. The audit period was Sept. 1, 2011 through Aug. 31, 2012.In fiscal year 2012, the district spent $184,670 for lunches and snacks at its child care centers. It purchased food and snacks costing approximately $168,000 and $44,590 from two vendors, the majority paid by federal funds.last_img read more

State government drawing up schemes to promote renewable energy Mamata

first_imgKolkata: The state government is going to promote solar power and renewable energy in a big way, announced Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on National Renewable Day.On the occasion, she tweeted: “Today is #NationalRenewableEnergyDay. Our State Govt is drawing up major schemes for the promotion of solar power & other sources of renewable energy like tidal power in #Bangla… One such scheme is “Aaloshree” under which roofs of all government offices & schools are being fitted with solar panels. #NationalRenewableEnergyDay.” Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe use of solar power will not only bring down the electricity bills in state-run offices and institutions but also help to conserve energy. In New Town, many state and central government offices are being run on solar power. Green buildings that have come up in different locations in New Town and Kolkata, use solar power and are given additional Floor Area Ratio (FAR).Meanwhile, state Power minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay held a high-level meeting in West Midnapore to bring down losses in the power sector. Senior administrative and police officials of West Midnapore and Jhargram districts were present at the meeting. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedSenior officials of the state Power department also attended it.It may be mentioned that Chief Minister had urged the Power department to take steps to bring down the losses. A review meeting will be held a month later to take a stock of the progress.The ways and means to check power thefts and non-payment of bills, the two main causes of the revenue loss were discussed at length. The state Power department has taken up schemes to stop thefts. Outdoor teams have been formed which go out in different areas and those involved in power thefts are arrested. As a result of this, illegal tapping of power from the overhead lines has come down to a great extent. Non-payment of electricity bills in semi-urban and rural areas has become a major concern of the Power department. Rural people are taking new connections but are very reluctant to pay the bill. Seventy senior officials have been deputed who along with district-level officials will visit and urge them to pay the electricity bills. They will be accompanied by cops as well. Though no action will be taken immediately, the department is contemplating steps which include arrest and even disconnection of the line in case of habitual offenders.last_img read more

Citizen group voices support for government moratorium on thermal conversion of solid

first_imgA new citizen group called “Hacia Basura Cero” (“Towards Zero Trash”) joined the ongoing discussion over the government’s temporary ban on the thermal processing of solid waste for energy, such as gasification and other methods, passed by decree on June 27.The group includes environmentalists, academics, specialists in waste management and citizens from several communities who are “concerned about the recent resurgence of initiatives to incinerate trash as the only way to manage it,” the group explained in a letter delivered to the environment and health ministries.The letter had 130 signatures of representatives from local and international conservation groups, universities, civil groups and citizens in support an Environment Ministry decree postponing approval of the implementation of solid waste thermal conversion in Costa Rica.“Thermal degradation plants generate highly toxic substances that pose a high risk to human health and to the environment. Technology associated with energy generation from waste (except for biodigestion) is extremely expensive and is one of the least efficient ways to generate electricity. The huge capital investment required by incinerators usually is paid for by high rates for citizens, and this process also discourages recycling as well as other waste-reduction policies,” the letter stated.The group considers it “illogical to promote a waste management model already in decline worldwide,” and they claimed that Europe hopes to eliminate gasification by the end of the decade. The number of incinerators in the U.S. has steadily declined since the 1990s, the statement added.The Environment Ministry’s executive decree states that that ban will be in place until technical and scientific studies prove with certainty that the process does not harm human health and the environment. Advocates for solid waste thermal conversion also must prove the processes do not violate the country’s health legislation, the decree stated.Last month, the National Association of Municipalities (ANAI) filed a complaint to an administrative court challenging MINAE’s moratorium, arguing it has “legal and constitutional flaws because it limits the freedom of trade and contradicts Law #7200, which allows the Costa Rican Electricity Institute to purchase electricity,” the association’s vice president, Gilberto Monge, said at the time.“We have studies showing this process of electricity generation is not harmful to the environment, and we know that garbage dumps and electricity generation using fuel currently produce more pollution in comparison,” Monge said during a press conference in which lawmakers from several parties joined ANAI in asking the government to cancel the decree.

huge geyser of waterIt had struck a mine which snapped off a large section of the stern sending the piece and its five-inch gun to the bottom with as many as 70 men trapped insideOn Wednesday maritime scientists announced that they had found the sunken stern and its big gun encrusted with sea growth in 290 feet of water amid one of World War II’s most untouched battlefieldsNo remains of sailors were seen or recoveredThe bulk of the Abner Read remained afloat that night It was later repaired and sent back to the battle In 1944 the ship was hit again this time by a Japanese suicide plane and

Read which was named for a Civil War Navy hero begins at Kiska where it had been dispatched after its commissioning in 1943And there 75 years later on July 17 underwater archaeologists found the 75-foot section of the stern where scores of men probably remain entombedThe expedition was funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and run by Project Recover a partnership of the University of Delaware the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the BentProp ProjectIts aim was to study the almost untouched underwater battlefield of the World War II fight between the United States and Japan for the Aleutian Islands The Japanese seized Kiska in June 1942 and weren’t driven off until July 1943 after relentless shelling and bombing by US forcesAlong with the Abner Read’s stern a dozen Japanese ships two Japanese submarines and numerous downed American airplanes are believed to be in the local waters according to Mark Moline of the University of DelawareAnd that in part was what drew Project Recover which focuses mostly on locating World War II aircraft lost at sea said Andrew Pietruszka of the Scripps Institution Project Recover’s lead archaeologistThe project’s attention was first drawn to a downed B-24 bomber near Kiska but it expanded after the team learned about the Abner Read he said Tuesday in a telephone interview"I knew almost nothing about Kiska and the Aleutian campaign so it caught my attention" he said "There’s got to be shipwrecks and there’s got to be submarines [This is]

Only 17 percent of American voters approve of the proposal According to a Quinnipiac University national poll released Thursday 56 percent of Americans disapprove of the Republican alternative to the Affordable Care Act with 26 percent undecided “Replacing Obamacare will come with a price for elected representatives who vote to scrap it say many Americans who clearly feel their health is in peril under the Republican alternative” said Tim Malloy assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll The poll also found that 46 percent said they would be less likely to vote for their lawmakers if

lot to do with their personality But according to a new study it also has to do with the personalities of people around them The behavior of other people can influence traits like laziness impatience and prudenceeven when a person is unaware that its happening The findings are notable says lead author Jean Daunizeau a researcher at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) because these three traits are typically thought to be unique among individuals "They drive most of our daily decisions which are made of trade-offs between the prospect of reward and costs such as risk effort and delay" Daunizeau said in an email What’s surprising here is that these seemingly unique behaviors “are so volatile and prone to others’ influence" TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now In the study published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology Daunizeau and his colleagues asked 56 people to make a series of decisions involving risks delays or effort They asked the people if they would rather enter a lottery with a 90% chance of winning a small payoff or one with a 10% chance of winning a large payoff; if they’d prefer a small reward in three days or a larger reward in several months; and if they’d choose to do a physically demanding task with a big payoff or an easier one with a smaller payoff The participants were then asked to predict how other people would approach these same scenarios After seeing the responses from those other participants (who were actually computer algorithms unknown to the real volunteers) they were then asked to make a second series of decisions In the second round of decision-making peoples attitudes tended to become more similar to those of the fictional participants Many of them also assumed (without any evidence) that the attitudes of others would closely resemble their own The participants were mostly unaware of these biases say the authors They write that these subconscious attitude shifts may be among the many factors that contribute to the natural alignment of collective human behaviorsa phenomenon sometimes known as herd mentality It’s not yet clear how this type of attitude contagion compares to other forms of feedback or peer pressure or how behaviors might change if people become aware of them "For example if your lazy boss rewards you for having invested more effort in your work will you become more or less lazy" Daunizeau says "What if someone makes you realize that you imitate the attitude of your lazy boss" More research is needed and the findings aren’t meant to discourage spending time with certain types of people But Daunizeau says it probably wont hurt for people to surround themselves with others whose dispositions and work ethics they admireand to be more aware of less-desirable traits of friends and family which could potentially rub off on them Contact us at editors@timecomChinas
