The Ministry of Home Affairs sometime back approved our proposal and we purchased four such four-wheelers in the first batch.”I can tell you that none of the senior officers in the force including me have such smart and powerful vehicles for their movement as compared to what our men have now,” he said.advertisementIn order to make sure they are utilised for the task they have been sent for, the ITBP boss said, strict instructions have been issued that these vehicles will carry troops while on duty and during patrol, officers can utilise them only when leading such tasks, in order to prevent their misuse.”Its not that my men will misuse the asset but what has to be ensured and kept in mind is that these vehicles have been sent for a special purpose and there should be no dilution in that task,” he added.The force, before deploying these SUVs at border posts, trained a special batch of drivers at the ITBP training centre in Chandigarh, after which they were driven uphill, to their places of deployment.The interiors of the SUVs, a senior official said, have been slightly modified to fix radio communication sets and to seat 6-7 troops with their firearms.The force is tasked with guarding the 3,488 km Sino-India border. Its posts are in some of the harshest areas with locations ranging from 9,000 ft to 18,000 ft where mercury often plunges below zero degree Celsius.<img src="http://image1.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2071/IMG5981.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8188"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Mauricio Pochettino wants quick decisions on Tottenham departures

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://c59.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/C2059/IMG15332.jpg" alt="first_img" />Share via Email Share on WhatsApp Read more Share on Facebook Share on Pinterest Pochettino was outspoken after his team’s final game of the season on Sunday – the 5-4 Wembley win against Leicester – when he prodded Levy over squad strengthening. It felt as though he was flexing his muscles from a position of power, the club having once again qualified for the Champions League, and it might not be coincidence that Pochettino is in talks over a new contract.Pochettino was also seeking to mark his turf over the type of player he wants to sign. Typically Levy has preferred younger ones with resale value but Pochettino would like him to consider more seasoned professionals.Harry Kane has said the emergence of Mohamed Salah at Liverpool has driven him to new heights. The Tottenham striker finished the season with a career-best 30 Premier League goals, though it was not enough for him to win the Golden Boot for a third year in succession.Salah took the award with 32 goals, a record for a 38-game season. Kane scored 25 in 2015-16 and 29 in 2016-17 and he got 21 in 2014-15 when he finished as runner-up to Manchester City’s Sergio Agüero in the Golden Boot. The 24-year-old is determined to maintain his upward path and has set himself the target of bettering Salah’s total.“I am looking forward to the competition again next season,” Kane said. “I haven’t seen Mo to talk with him. But this is what you want at the highest level – you want to be fighting for things and I think we pushed each other. He broke the record for a 38-game season and that is what I will try to do next season.” Share on Messenger Tottenham Hotspur Sign up for The Fiver and get our daily football email.

Harry Kane Mauricio Pochettino hints Spurs future hinges on commitment of transfer funds Yet he is keen for there to be clarity over the assets in the squad on which he could cash in – and it means doing early business with them to give him greater flexibility on his signings. The transfer window in England closes on 8 August.It will doubtless disappoint some fans and players that Pochettino is prepared to consider offers for Dembélé – most of the playing staff rate the midfielder as their No 1 team‑mate. But there are concerns over his fitness – whether he can stay the course, in physical terms, for another season in England.Dembélé had ankle surgery last summer, started this season slowly and finished it back in the treatment room with an ankle injury. The 30-year-old could be tempted by a final major pay day in China, where Beijing Guoan are interested in him. He has one year to run on his contract.Rose blotted his copybook last August when he gave an interview in which he urged the club to sign more world-class players and made plain his frustrations at the wage structure. Everton want the left-back this summer.Alderweireld’s situation has been well documented. Tottenham stand to lose him for £25m next summer because of a release clause in his contract and consequently they are keen to get more for him now. The centre-half has played six times for the club since 1 November, when he injured a hamstring, and the problem could be that his suitors would want him to prove his form and fitness at the World Cup for Belgium before they move for him.

Province Announces New Glasgow School Site

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://b53.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/B2053/IMG1352.jpg" alt="first_img" />Students and families in New Glasgow will soon have a new Primary-Grade 8 school on the site of New Glasgow Junior High School. “The province is putting kids and learning first by building a school that will provide opportunities for students to be successful,” said Justice Minister Ross Landry, on behalf of Education Minister Ramona Jennex. “The site of New Glasgow Junior High has been home to a school for a long time, and I am pleased that students will continue to be educated in the heart of the community.” The $18-million school will replace Temperance Street Elementary, Acadia Street Elementary, and New Glasgow Junior High School. Grade 9 students will attend North Nova High School once the Primary-Grade 8 school opens. “It’s great news that the process for building the new school can now move forward,” said David Linton, chair of the New Glasgow Junior High School Advisory Committee. “The site of the current school — and the new one — is centrally located and well-known to residents and kids in the community. I think people are going to be very excited with this decision.” Funding for the new school is part of the province’s capital investment plan that is putting millions of dollars into projects such as schools, roads, and hospitals. For all new school construction projects that have an existing building on the site, the departments of Education and Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal examine if there are any materials or components of value for re-use, such as the foundation, floor slabs, walls and structure. Re-using materials would result in less waste and less harm to the environment. The Chignecto-Central Regional School Board is working on an arrangement for students at New Glasgow Junior High School while the new school is being built. The school is expected to be completed in September 2014.<img src="http://a43.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/A2043/IMG1495.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8058"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Countries agree on next steps for upcoming UN climate change negotiations

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p> “This week has got us closer to a structured set of decisions that can be agreed in Cancún. Governments addressed what is doable in Cancún, and what may have to be left to later,” Christiana Figueres said on the final day of the UN Climate Change Conference that took place in Tianjin, China. Ms. Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), said that governments had discussed each element of a package of decisions that they will need to finalize when they meet in Cancún from 29 November to 10 December.These include a long-term shared vision, adapting to the inevitable effects of climate change, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, key operational elements of climate finance and capacity building, along with the future of the Kyoto Protocol.Under the Protocol, which has been ratified by 191 of the 194 parties to the Convention, 37 States, consisting of highly industrialized countries and countries undergoing the process of transition to a market economy, have legally binding emission limitation and reduction commitments. The ultimate objective of both treaties is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system.Ms. Figueres noted that action on climate change that could be agreed in Cancún and beyond was about turning “small climate keys to unlock very big doors” into a new level of climate action among rich and poor, business and consumers, governments and citizens.“If climate financing and technology transfer make it possible to give thousands of villages efficient solar cookers and lights, not only do a nation’s entire carbon emissions drop, but children grow healthier, women work easier and families can talk, read and write into the evening,” she said. “In the end, this is about real people being given the opportunity to take control of their future stability, security and sustainability,” she added at the close of the talks that drew around 2,500 participants from more than 176 countries, including government delegates, representatives from business and industry, environmental organizations and research institutions. 9 October 2010The top United Nations climate change official said on Saturday that countries have made progress over the past week in defining what could be achieved at the negotiations slated to begin next month in Cancún, Mexico.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7960"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

UNbacked court sentences key Khmer Rouge figure to life in prison on

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p> The appeals chamber of the United Nations-backed tribunal in Cambodia trying cases of mass murder and other crimes committed under the Khmer Rouge regime today sentenced the former head of a notorious detention camp to life in prison, upholding an earlier conviction and extending the existing jail term.The Supreme Court Chamber of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) upheld the conviction of Kaing Guek Eav, alias Duch, and ordered that he be jailed for life, the maximum sentence under the law for crimes against humanity and grave breaches of the 1949 Geneva Conventions.The court quashed the 35-year sentence handed down by the trial chamber on 26 July 2010 for war crimes and crimes against humanity. It also overturned the trial chamber’s decision to grant Mr. Kaing remedy for illegal detention by the Cambodian military court between 1999 and 2007.The prosecution had argued in its appeal that the earlier judgement gave “insufficient weight to the gravity of Duch’s crimes and his role and his willing participation in those crimes.” The court dismissed Mr. Kaing’s own appeal in which he argued that the ECCC had no jurisdiction over him.Mr. Kaing headed the S-21 security prison in Phnom Penh, where numerous Cambodians were unlawfully detained, subjected to inhumane conditions and forced labour, tortured and executed in the late 1970s. A minimum of 12,272 people died at S-21 over a period of three years.“The crimes committed by Kaing Guek Eav were undoubtedly among the worst in recorded human history,” said Judge Kong Srim, the president of the ECCC’S Supreme Court.“They deserve the highest penalty available to provide a fair and adequate response to the outrage these crimes invoked in victims, their families and relatives, the Cambodian people, and all human beings.”The court rejected claims for reparation either because they would be unenforceable, or due to the fact that implementing them would require Mr. Kaing, who is indigent, to pay, or place the compensation obligation on the State.The ECCC is a hybrid court set up after a 2003 agreement between the UN and the Cambodian Government with the aim of trying those accused of the worst crimes during the Khmer Rouge regime.As many as 2 million people are thought to have died during the rule of the Khmer Rouge between 1975 and 1979, which was then followed by a protracted period of civil war in the South-East Asian country. 3 February 2012The appeals chamber of the United Nations-backed tribunal in Cambodia trying cases of mass murder and other crimes committed under the Khmer Rouge regime today sentenced the former head of a notorious detention camp to life in prison, upholding an earlier conviction and extending the existing jail term.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7957"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Flyers cover statue of singer Smith amid racism allegations

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>The Philadelphia Flyers are covering a statue of singer Kate Smith outside their arena, following the New York Yankees in cutting ties and looking into allegations of racism against the 1930s star with a popular recording of “God Bless America.”Flyers officials said Friday they also plan to remove Smith’s “God Bless America” recording from their library. They say several other songs performed by Smith “contain offensive lyrics that do not reflect our values as an organization.”The New York Daily News reported the Yankees suspending their use of Smith’s recording during the seventh-inning stretch amid conflicting claims about several of her songs, including a 1939 song “That’s Why the Darkies Were Born.” The tune originated in the 1931 Broadway revue “George White’s Scandals,” and was considered satire at the time. Smith’s likeness also appears in a 1939 ad that heavily uses the mammy caricature, one of the most well-known racist depictions of black women.Smith died in 1986.Smith’s connection with the Flyers started in 1969 when a team executive ordered her version of “God Bless America” to be played instead of “The Star Spangled Banner.” That led to her performing the song several times before games in the 1970s.The Yankees have used her recording of “God Bless America” and sometimes live singers during the seventh inning since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. They have used her version twice this season and have mostly played an organ version.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7895"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

OSU won, 11-7.Credit: Brett Amadon / Lantern reporterThe struggle to piece wins together continues for the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team.The Buckeyes (1-5, 0-0) dropped their third straight game early in the season after falling to No. 9 Denver, 9-5, Saturday.Playing as non-conference opponents for the first time since before 1998, freshman midfielder John Kelly opened up the scoring after recording his first career goal on an assist from junior midfielder David Planning, who led the Buckeyes with a career-high three goals and four points.However, Denver responded quickly as freshman attackman Zach Miller scored his first of five goals just more than a minute later.After two more goals put the Pioneers up 3-1, the Buckeyes used a man-up goal from Planning as well as a goal from freshman attackman J.T. Blubaugh to tie the game at three before halftime.Junior midfielder Jesse King, who leads OSU in scoring with 22 points on the year, recorded the assist on Blubaugh’s goal to extend his point streak to 29 games.The teams traded goals coming out of the break, but Denver used a five-goal run to seize a 9-4 lead late in the fourth quarter.Planning scored the fifth goal for the Buckeyes off an assist from Kelly, but OSU — who was stymied for much of the second half — could not draw any closer as the Pioneers closed out the victory.This was the second consecutive game the Buckeyes were limited to five goals, after they fell to Hofstra, 7-5, March 8.Offensively, the Pioneers were led by Miller, who finished with a career-best seven points on five goals and two assists. Senior midfielder Jeremy Noble, who was drafted sixth overall in January’s Major League Lacrosse Draft by the Denver Outlaws, had three points (one goal, two assists) on the night.OSU senior goaltender Dutton made six saves for the Buckeyes.OSU is scheduled to return home next week for its first of three straight games in Columbus, set to take on ECAC opponent Bellarmine (4-2, 0-2).<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7884"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Crackdown on paedophile ring that uses Whatsapp to share images of child

Hundreds of devices containing pornographic material have been seized, it added.Spanish police said the photos and videos that were seized showed “humiliating treatment” and “excessive brutality” involving children from babies to children up to eight years old.Europol and international law enforcement agency Interpol, which also took part in the investigation, said 38 suspects had been arrested but Spanish police said “so far” 39 people had been held, including 17 in Spain.The other arrests took place in Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia, El Salvador, Germany, Italy, Paraguay and Portugal.Spanish police said they found handwritten material at a house they searched in Lugo in the north of the country listing the names, ages, and places where encounters with minors took place. Some of them dated back 20 years.“We need to continue to combine our joint resources and skills to tackle this threat to our children and bring these offenders to justice,” Wainwright said.“Actions like Operation Tantalio send a strong message” that police across the globe will continue to work together to bring to justice those “engaging in or benefitting from the heinous crimes,” added Bjorn Sellstrom, Interpol Crimes Against Children operations coordinator.© – AFP, 2017Read: ‘Courage must lead to convictions’: New garda phoneline set up for victims of child sex abuseRead: False sex abuse allegations against McCabe circulated due to ‘clerical error’ Crackdown on paedophile ring that uses Whatsapp to share images of child sex abuse Arrests were made across Europe and Latin America.

Winston the pigeon took one hour and eight minutes to carry the data across the 60-mile course, and it took another hour to upload the data. During the same time, the ADSL had sent just 4% of the data. The race was held by an IT company in Durban, South Africa, called Unlimited IT. One of Unlimited IT’s employees complained about the slow speed of data transmission on ADSL, saying that data would get transferred faster by carrier pigeon. To highlight just how slow the broadband internet is, the company decided to test that claim. The 11-month-old Winston flew 60 miles from Unlimited IT’s call center in Howick to another office in Durban. To make sure that the bird didn’t have an unfair advantage, Unlimited IT imposed some rules on its website, including “no cats allowed” and “birdseed must not have any performance-enhancing seeds within.” Hundreds of South Africans followed the race on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter.For its part, Telkom said that it was not responsible for Unlimited IT’s slow broadband speeds. A Telkom spokesperson said that they had made several recommendations to Unlimited IT to improve its service, but none of the suggestions had been accepted.As the BBC reports, South Africa is one of the countries that could benefit from three new fiber optic cables being laid around the African continent to improve internet service.via: BBC News© 2009 PhysOrg.com<img src="http://s20.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2020/IMG8587.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7616"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Latin American leaders furious over Austrias decision to kidnap Evo Morales

Leaders from across Latin America and the Caribbean railed against European governments’ decisions to deny the airplane of Bolivian President Evo Morales into their airspace over concerns that National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden might have been on board.Morales’ airplane was eventually routed to Vienna, Austria. Bolivia said the unscheduled stop amounted to kidnapping the South American leader.On Tuesday, Morales was preparing to leave Russia after an energy summit when he told reporters that he would support Snowden’s asylum application.Hours later, France, Portugal and Spain all denied the plane permission to fly into their airspace allegedly under the suspicion that Morales’ diplomatic team secreted Snowden on board in an attempt to grant him asylum in the Andean country, the Christian Science Monitor reported. Running low on fuel, the plane was granted permission to land in Austria, according to several sources, where Austrian authorities searched the plane. Snowden was not on board.Bolivia said Austria’s treatment amounted to the “kidnapping” of Morales, Reuters reported, cited by The New York Times.The Bolivian leader’s plane eventually took off today en route to Bolivia at 11:30 a.m. local time after spending 13 hours on the tarmac, said Peter Kleeman, an airport spokesman, The New York Times reported.Leaders from across the region expressed their furor over Europe’s actions, many blaming meddling from the United States for the unplanned stop.Nicaragua’s Sandinista government condemned France and Portugal’s “criminal actions,” and the country’s First Lady Rosario Murillo interrupted a television broadcast Tuesday evening to denounce the “criminal attempt” against Morales, arguing that the unplanned stopped put the leader’s life at risk, according to the Nicaragua Dispatch.  Cuba gave a statement saying that Europe’s treatment of Morales “offended all Latin America and the Caribbean,” according to a Foreign Ministry statement.“They must be out of their minds,” tweeted Argentine President Christina Fernández de Kirchner, “Head of State and his plane have total immunity. This level of impunity cannot be.”Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa tweeted, “We are with Evo and the outraged Bolivian people. Our America cannot tolerate this abuse! As it goes with Bolivia, so it goes with us all.” South American presidents are trying to organize an emergency meeting of the Union of South American Nations to discuss the offense.Snowden has been living in the international terminal of the Sheremetyevo International Airport since fleeing Hong Kong on June 23. The former-intelligence service employee has been desperately trying to secure asylum to avoid prosecution in the United States. The U.S. government revoked Snowden’s passport, complicating the fugitive’s flight.Reuters compiled a list of the countries where Snowden has applied for asylum, including Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Venezuela.  Facebook Comments<img src="http://s32.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2032/IMG5282.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7535"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

thing But the governors said there is an agreement Most of those talking were not part of the meeting and no amount of noise making by anybody will settle the issue” Mohammed said Six northern organisations – Arewa Consultative Forum and the Northern Elders’ Forum Arewa Reawakening Forum Arewa Research and Development Project Northern Union and the Code Group – had on July 16 2013 insisted
