There was no major law and order issues and a CAPF jawan fired one round in the air to disperse crowds (near Arakkonam), he added.

Minor incidents of violence were reported from five towns, including Gudiyatham and Ariyalur, and the situation was brought under control immediately, he added. Police said four BJP men were allegedly injured in a clash with workers of the DMK and Congress in Kanyakumari. On complaints of technical glitches, Sahoo said 375 ballot units, 228 control units and 766 VVPAT were replaced. “Based on the low replacement rates, we can say the EVM performance has been very good.” The EVMs and VVPATs will be moved to counting centres by poll authorities and police in the presence of political parties, the CEO noted. On allegation of deletion of about a lakh of voters’ names in Kanyakumari by the Congress, he said they could give a complaint and it will be acted upon. Tamil Nadu brought out the many colours of elections when several centenarians like 102-year-old Jegadambal of Nagapattinam and lakhs of first time voters braved the scorching sun to cast their vote. From Chief Minister K Palaniswami, Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, DMK chief M K Stalin, Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan were among those who exercised their franchise standing in queues. Party leaders and top film stars including Rajinikanth, Ajit and Vijay were among the prominent personalities who turned up to vote. Indisposed 96-year-old DMK veteran, K Anbazhagan, a colleague of late M Karunanidhi was wheeled in at a booth here to cast his vote. Just after tying the knot, several couples arrived in their traditional bridal attire at the polling stations in areas including Nallampalli (Dharmapuri) and Srivilliputhur (Virudhunagar) to cast their votes. Rain and shine played spoilsport to an extent in some parts of the State in keeping voters away from the polling stations for sometime. While Chennai and other northern parts of Tamil Nadu was blazing hot, some southern parts of the State including Kanyakumari received showers. People switched to protest mode as well in a couple of regions like the villagers of Top Station in Kurangani hill ranges of Theni District to protest lack of basic amenities. “Of the 185 voters of this village, none came forward to cast their vote,” Theni District Collector M Pallavi Baldev said. Two elderly men died after casting their votes in Sivagiri (Erode) and Vedappatti (Salem) respectively. A 65-year-old man, who collapsed after emerging from a polling station, was rushed to a hospital where he was declared brought dead in Coimbatore while an 85-year woman died while she was standing in a queue at a booth there. Deletion of names from voters list, non-issuance of voters’ slips, malfunctioning of EVMs and technical glitches delaying polling process were among the key complaints of the people. After casting his vote, Stalin alleged that there has been distribution of cash and accused the Election Commission of being an “ally” of central and state governments. Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan, DMK’s Dayanidhi Maran and Kanimozhi, and Karti Chidambaram of Congress are among key contenders. Radhakrishnan told reporters in Kanyakumari: “This is a massive democratic festival which will decide the fate of India. I have exercised my franchise… A silent revolution is happening.” AIADMK leader and state minister D Jayakumar said 13 per cent voting in the morning “is a joyous thing.” “This shows there is a wave for Amma and MGR,” he said, exuding confidence that the AIADMK-BJP combine will emerge victorious. Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam leader T T V Dhinakaran alleged “malfunctioning of EVMs is an achievement of the Modi government.” About 1.40 lakh police personnel and 160 companies of CAPF were deployed in 17,720 polling stations to manage law and order.last_img read more

Former Wilmington Trust official sentenced for conspiracy

WILMINGTON, Del. — A former bank executive who co-operated with authorities in an investigation that led to the fraud convictions of four top executives for Wilmington Trust, the only financial institution to be criminally charged in connection with the federal bank bailout program, has been sentenced to almost two years in prison.Fifty-one-year-old Joseph Terranova was sentenced to 21 months behind bars Tuesday, more than five years after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud.Terranova’s attorney had asked for a sentence of home confinement and community service.Terranova, who at one point wore an FBI wire to secretly record his conversations with colleagues and real estate developers, testified last year in the trial of former bank president Robert Harra and three other top Wilmington Trust executives. All were found guilty.Randall Chase, The Associated Press read more

To fight tuberculosis root causes must be addressed says SecretaryGeneral

24 March 2008Tackling tuberculosis – a disease which still kills 4,000 people every day – requires dealing with its root causes, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today on the occasion of World TB Day. Tackling tuberculosis – a disease which still kills 4,000 people every day – requires dealing with its root causes, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today on the occasion of World TB Day.The theme of this year’s Day is “I am stopping TB,” and it is a pledge “we must uphold as we battle the epidemic throughout the year and into the future,” Mr. Ban said in a message.Multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB), which is man-made, and the even more lethal extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) are both spreading.“If we are to prevent a virtually untreatable tuberculosis epidemic, we must tackle the roots of the problem: poor services, poor supplies, poor prescribing and poor use of drugs,” the Secretary-General observed.The fight against tuberculosis “can be won only with the collective commitment of millions of individuals – donors and researchers, doctors and health-care workers, patients and family members.”As a result of collaboration among a range of partners, the proportion of people falling ill with TB is declining. But the advances are not being made at the same rate as population growth, Mr. Ban said, adding that the disease becomes ever more deadly when it overlaps with the HIV epidemic.He also urged a stepped up global response to save lives from tuberculosis, noting that the UN will convene a Global Leaders’ HIV/TB Forum this June. read more

Social media can make children more likely to have eating disorders because

Dr Guerrero said the findings reinforces the importance of the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth.These advise five to 17 year olds get at least 60 minutes a day moderate to vigorous exercise, have a maximum two hours of recreational screen time and manage nine to 11 hours uninterrupted sleep every night. Social media can make children more likely to have eating disorders or try drugs because it makes them more impulsive, a new study suggests. Too much social media – which includes Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube, Instagram and SnapChat – makes them more impulsive, often leading to bad decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives, warn scientists.Children spending a significant amount of time looking at screens, and not getting enough sleep, are most vulnerable, the study found.Lead author Dr Michelle Guerrero, a paediatrican at the University of Ottawa, said: “Impulsive behaviour is associated with numerous mental health and addiction problems, including eating disorders, behavioural addictions and substance abuse.”Her team analysed more than 4,500 eight to 11 year olds. Those who used smartphones more than two hours a day and slept less than nine hours a night were more impulsive.The results were based on the participants’ self reported scores on eight traits such as perserverance, seeking out thrills, setting goals, being sensitive and acting rashly. It adds to increasing evidence that screens are harming children’s mental health, she said.Exercise was also found to lead to less impulsive youngsters. What is more, the benefit of a full night’s sleep is a major factor.Dr Guerrero said: “When people don’t sleep long enough, their behaviour is more impulsive.”The research is the first set of data from the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study, which plans to follow the participants for 10 years.Future feedback will shed fresh light on how physical activity, screen time and sleep relate to children’s impulsivity, Dr Guerrero added.

Meeting all three pillars of the recommendations was associated with more favourable outcomes.Dr Guerrero said: “Impulsive behaviour is associated with numerous mental health and addiction problems, including eating disorders, behavioural addictions and substance abuse.”This study shows the importance of especially paying attention to sleep and recreational screen time.”When kids follow these recommendations, they are more likely to make better decisions and act less rashly than those who do not meet the guidelines.”In one of the first studies of its kind her team looked specifically at the link between screen time and behaviour in adolescents. Dr Guerrero said: “We were looking at how excessive screen time leads to impulsive behaviour.”Impulsivity was defined as acting “without realising the risk involved or the consequences involved with the behaviour.”The characteristic is often connected to mental health issues and is a key component of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.Dr Guerrero said: “When we don’t think before we act, it has huge impacts on our lives.”A key discovery was how easily preventable it is, as as it involves a minor life adjustment – including less screen time and more sleep.Dr Guerrero said: “The behaviours we looked at in our study are modifiable. They can be changed right now, today.” read more

How much pee is in public swimming pools An awful lot actually

first_imgHow much pee is in public swimming pools? An awful lot actually A recent study found 75 litres of urine in one public swimming pool in Canada. Share66 Tweet Email3 No interest/No opinion (251) 32,882 Views By Sean Murray 27 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3267340 Mar 5th 2017, 7:45 AM No (3727) Poll Results:center_img REGULAR SWIMMERS MAY want to look away now, as scientists have developed a test to measure how much urine is contained in a large body of water, and their findings may be unwelcome.Canadian researchers tested both the water before it enters the pool, and then periodically tested it over three weeks in 31 pools across two Canadian cities.By the end of the three weeks, they found that swimmers had released 75 litres of urine in a pool around one-third the size of an Olympic swimming pool, and 30 litres in a pool around half the size.However, that 75 litres comprised a tiny fraction of the 830,000 litre swimming pool.Lead author Lindsay Blackstock, from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, said: “Our study provides additional evidence that people are indeed urinating in public pools and hot tubs.”The test involved measuring the concentration of acesulfame potassium (ACE), which is an artificial sweetener that passes through the body unaltered. Scientists said this made it the “ideal urinary marker”.Blackstock said that there was “no other explanation” for that substance to be in the pools.She noted that urine is considered sterile, and any potentially harmful bacteria that finds its way into pools is usually killed off by chlorine.Although there are moderate health risks, with a small risk of eye irritation and even respiratory problems if exposed to urine-contaminated water over a long period of time, Blackstock said that any potential harm was outweighed by the health benefits of regular exercise through swimming.There was no way, however, to estimate how many swimmers peed while in the pools, as the researchers did not monitor how many people visited the pools over the course of the three-month study.A US survey conducted in 2012 said that one in five people admitted to peeing in a swimming pool.Back in 2012, decorated Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps admitted that he and his fellow swimmers sometimes relieve themselves in the pool, while fellow US swimmer Ryan Lochte also admitted to the practice.So, what do you think? Have you ever peed in a swimming pool?

Silva We lacked aggressiveness

first_imgEverton manager Marco Silva says Southampton deserved to win and slammed his side for not being aggressive enough in their 2-1 loss at St Mary’s on Saturday.After a goalless first half, James Ward-Prowse opened the scoring to give Southampton the lead in the 50th minute.The hosts doubled their advantage 14 minutes later through Lucas Digne’s unfortunate own goal.Gyfil Sigurdsson reduced the deficit in stoppage time, but it was too late for the Toffees to find the equalizer and the game ended 2-1.“To be honest they deserved the three points,” Silva told Sky Sports.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

Portia Doubleday on passing notes and Angelas repressed emotion on Mr

first_img“There’s something to be said about how dangerous these affirmations are.” @PortiaDd on Angela in season_2.0. #MrRobotSDCC— Mr. Robot (@whoismrrobot) July 22, 2016But the real questions may be about Angela’s past. We know the broad strokes, but Doubleday says there are a lot of feelings being shoved down right now. What is she repressing? That’s where the story really is for her this season.She also disclosed that there are several things coming up for Angela. “Things just keep getting slammed her way,” she offered before going on to say there wasn’t much more she could say but rounded it out with “The ending is totally insane…everyone on the show goes through massive changes”.Like Malek, Doubleday has been diving into the fan theories and trying to figure things out, including note passing during the table readings and all sorts of ideas and theories have been discussed and even run by Esmail. However, she also cautioned that, whenever people think they have it figured out, things change. If you think you know where things are going, here’s something to keep in mind –– four of the actors, people who know the show and the characters intimately, all had their own guesses.All of them were wrong.Not that she’s stopped guessing. She recently read the “scarf on the door” theory. If you haven’t heard it, there ya go. The first question Portia Doubleday got when she sat down at our press table at SDCC was “What’s coming up for Angela?”.After joking that she couldn’t tell us, she went on to say that Angela’s quite different this season than she was in the first season and I think the most interesting elements are this idea of brainwash.Doubleday made a commitment to really diving deep this season into the implications of her mother’s death and going to work for E-Corp a.k.a the company that’s responsible for that death and the following cover-up. Guilt and shame are something Angela is living with on a daily basis and Doubleday eschews the idea that Angela “drank the Kool-Aid” or that she’s evil. Instead, she thinks of it as doing what Terry Colby suggested…getting into the company and working her way up to a position where she can effect a change within the company.She’s also looking into the idea of what happens when you finally get power and control. “There’s something very lucrative about it…so there’s that fine line that people relate to.”Asked about Angela’s new affirmations, she described working on them at home so she could see what the experience was. She admitted that they did lift her mood and made her wonder why Angela needs to do them so desperately. I find that answer even more interesting after seeing this tweet during the panel.last_img read more

first_img Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Karlos Dansby is an NFL free agent who is coming off an incredibly successful season with the Arizona Cardinals.The Cardinals, presumably, would like to bring him back. And Dansby would like to be back. In fact, Dansby thinks he will be back.“I definitely expect to be an Arizona Cardinal next year,” he told Sirius XM’s NFL Radio. “We don’t have long here. Eventually we’ll get to talking and try to hammer something out and see how it goes.” Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img Dansby, 32, signed with the Cardinals last March after being cut by the Miami Dolphins. The first six seasons of his NFL career were spent in Arizona after being drafted, so it was a bit of a homecoming for the linebacker. Yet his 2013 was significantly better than anything he had done before.Dansby set career highs in tackles (122), interceptions (4) and passes defensed (19), while also tallying 6.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He returned two of the interceptions for touchdowns, by the way.But for the Cardinals, as was the case in 2010 when they saw Dansby leave for a bigger contract in Miami, the question really comes down to how much the veteran is worth. If he plays like he did last season, Dansby is worth quite a bit. And he expects to be even better next season.“I definitely want to dominate in a winning program, definitely want to be in a winning situation at this point in my career,” he said of his goals. “I’m having fun, man, I’m just getting started. I’ve got some things up my sleeve I’m going to be doing this offseason to really solidify myself as the best linebacker in the league, period.

Go back to the enewsletter Tauck has revealed that

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterTauck has revealed that the name of its new Douro River riverboat will be ms Andorinha. The vessel will operate three new itineraries in Portugal in 2020. ms Andorinha will have a capacity of just 84 guests, carrying fewer guests than any other vessel currently operated by a major line on the Douro.“At Tauck, we measure success by the quality of the experience we provide our guests, and one of the best ways to ensure a warm, relaxing and engaging atmosphere on board is to avoid crowding too many guests into a limited space,” said Tauck CEO Dan Mahar.Riverboats sailing the Douro average 80 metres in length, noted Mahar, and accommodate as many as 130 passengers. “That’s 55% more guests in the same space, and you just can’t deliver the same level [of] experience or ambiance with those kinds of numbers.”Though the ms Andorinha will have far fewer guests than other ships, she will still have more director-level personnel to ensure Tauck’s guests enjoy the highest levels of care and service. As on Tauck riverboats fleet-wide, the newbuild will be staffed by a Tauck Cruise Director and three Tauck Director guides.Mahar hinted that the ms Andorinha will also boast a number of unique design features to make her perfectly suited to cruising the Douro.“The Douro is a very different river, and so we’ve been consciously deliberate with the ship’s design,” said Mahar. “We won’t be the first company to operate on the Douro when we launch next year, but in terms of infrastructure, we’re excited to have some surprises in store that will truly differentiate us.”The new ship will have a crew of 36, and will measure 80.1 metres in length with a beam of 11.5 metres. Guests will be accommodated in 42 cabins, including 12 91.4-square-metre suites on the upper Diamond Deck, and 20 68.6-square-metre staterooms primarily on the vessel’s Ruby or mid-level deck. The remaining accommodations – six 61-square-metre cabins and four 45.7-square-metre cabins – will be on the lower or Emerald Deck.ms Andorinha will also feature a Panorama Lounge, Compass Rose restaurant for fine dining and a second dining venue, Arthur’s (named for company chairman Arthur Tauck Jr.), serving more casual fare.Itinerary details and pricing will be announced later this year.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Pablo Gorondi, The Associated Press Posted Apr 19, 2019 9:27 am PDT The Yawpers, “Human Question” (Bloodshot Records)Denver trio The Yawpers are intense and dynamic on “Human Question,” a rambunctious album tracing some of the many paths that rock ‘n’ roll takes through its deep foundations in the blues.The band’s fourth album encompasses from approximations to white noise and Zeppelin-esque grooves to folky sentiments and indie jangle in R.E.M./Replacements mode. It’s being presented as lead singer Nate Cook’s “therapy” record, a more intimate approach than their previous release.Where “Boy in a Well,” from 2017, explored the story of a semi-abandoned newborn in World War I-era France, “Human Questions” often sounds like the rush and chaos of present times.With exceptions, Cook’s traumas seem to be projected on the world, not kept within. “Carry Me,” an epic track that goes from whispers to screams, a squawking sax solo and a quiet end, is one of the most personal and straightforward, if close to unhinged — “Lie to me, it’s all I need/Tell me you love me … And you’ll carry me through.”The acoustic centre of “Man as Ghost” camouflages an appealing combination of tortured and relaxed, with one of the album’s most haunting, schizophrenic lines — “I’m neighbour with another man/who moves where ever I decide to live.”The title track is another enigmatic highlight echoing the early ’70s, while “Dancing on My Knees,” possibly about coming to terms with divorce, is bluesy and visceral though only half as much as “Forgiveness Through Pain.”Respite comes with the final two tracks, “Can’t Wait,” whose title evoking a Replacements’ classic is not the only similarity, and “Where the Winters End,” which could be a rewrite of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young” in elegy mode.Pablo Gorondi, The Associated Press This image released by Bloodshot Records shows “Human Question” the latest release by The Yawpers.
