STARS Air Ambulance seeking support to renew helicopter fleet

first_imgAccording to Robertson, following the assessment, STARS made the decision to replace the entire fleet by 2022.Robertson says the process of renewing the fleet will be a combination of government contributions, selling the old fleet, and starting a capital campaign. The target of the campaign is $4 million for the Grande Prairie base, with Shell Canada already donating $500,000.Currently, STARS operates an Airbus BK117 helicopter which will be replaced by an Airbus H145 helicopter.STARS is an organization funded by individual donors, service groups, corporate donors and government contributions which provides rapid and specialized emergency care and transportation for critically ill and injured patients across Western Canada.For more information on STARS and to make a donation, you can visit stars.ca. GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – STARS Air Ambulance is seeking support to renew its aging helicopter fleet.STARS President and CEO, Andrea Robertson, says they are using the same helicopter fleet since starting operations in 1985 and launched an independent assessment to start looking at renewing the fleet.“We started STARS in 1985, and as it turns out, we’ve been flying the same aircraft for that entire period of time. We knew they were getting old, so we got some independent assessments done, which told us they are pretty much getting to be at end of life.”last_img read more

Nyay money to be deposited in ac of women Rahul Gandhi

first_imgWanaparthy (Telangana): Seeking to woo women voters, Congress president Rahul Gandhi Monday said the Rs 72,000 money proposed to be given to the poor by Congress under the ‘ Nyay’ scheme would be deposited in their bank accounts. “This money would go to the bank account of the woman in a family. Every month, this money will directly go to the bank account of women. Crores of women will get power and India would stand on its own,” he said, addressing an election rally at Wanaparthy under Nagarkurnool Lok Sabha constituency.

The economy has been paralysed following demonetisation implemented by the NDA government, he alleged. If the UPA came to power, 33 per cent reservation would be given to women in the Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha and State assemblies, Gandhi said. He also said 33 per cent of Central government jobs would be reserved for women.last_img read more

He said that claims that journalists were attacked during the violence will also be investigated.The Minister said that during the protest, when one group moved away after they were assured of a solution to their concerns, another group stayed back and threw petrol bombs and other objects towards the army. He however assured that an independent investigation will be carried out into the clashes and the perpetrators will be brought to book.

The ‘battle for water’ broke out after days of small protests led to a massive demonstration last week with the people blocking the main Kandy – Colombo road.

Thousands of Sri Lankans return home after rebels end factional fighting UN

The 3,303 internally displaced people streamed into two schools in Batticalao and Trincomalee after the fighting broke out Friday, some walking as much as 22 kilometres. According to Sri Lankan Government officials, however, the main LTTE faction put down the uprising, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said.”The swift returns were also prompted by a belief that bad luck will befall those who are not in their homes on Sri Lankan New Year, celebrated today,” UNHCR said.Peace talks between the Government and the LTTE have been under way for two years, under the auspices of the Norwegian Government, UNHCR said, adding that the two decades of war had taken 60,000 lives and displaced millions of people. read more

Highend homes sales up in Toronto Vancouver down in Calgary in 2015

High-end homes sales up in Toronto, Vancouver, down in Calgary in 2015: report by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 7, 2016 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Jan 7, 2016 at 8:46 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Sales of homes worth $1 million or more heated up in Toronto and Vancouver last year as the low loonie fuelled demand from foreign buyers, a new report released Thursday says.The report from Sotheby’s International Realty Canada says 11,112 homes worth $1 million or more were sold in the Greater Toronto Area last year — an increase of 48 per cent over 2014.In Vancouver, 4,578 homes over the $1 million mark were sold in 2015, up 46 per cent from the previous year.The realtor says sales of homes worth more than $4 million grew the most — in Vancouver by 67 per cent, and in Toronto by 71 per cent.But after years of growth, Calgary’s high-end housing market declined last year as the downturn in the oilpatch hurt consumer confidence.The Sotheby’s report says sales of homes over $1 million fell 41 per cent in Alberta’s largest city in 2015 compared with the previous year.Elaine Hung, vice-president of marketing for Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, said low interest rates, high levels of immigration and a limited supply of homes heated up the high-end housing markets in Toronto and Vancouver.“We had a lot of buyers who were very eager to enter the market, and they were bidding on a limited number of homes, particularly in premier neighbourhoods,” said Hung.In many instances, that resulted in bidding wars, she said.The luxury segment — comprised of homes worth $4 million or more — benefited from all of those factors, as well as weakness in the Canadian dollar.“We did see increased interest from international buyers, so that was definitely a factor,” said Hung, referring to the $4-million-plus segment in Toronto and Vancouver.In Montreal, sales of homes worth over $1 million grew by 15 per cent from a year ago.Looking ahead to 2016, Hung predicts more of the same — continued sales growth in Toronto and Vancouver, a further slowdown in Calgary and a balanced market in Montreal.Follow @alexposadzki on Twitter.

Exclusive investigation England manager Sam Allardyce for sale

first_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Sam Allardyce Sam Allardyce, centre, with his financial advisor Shane Moloney, left, his agent Mark Curtis, second left, and football agent and former player Scott McGarvey at a meeting in London The Telegraph detailed its findings in an email to the FA yesterday morning which set out 18 questions about its findings, including Allardyce’s comments in the two meetings. However, the FA declined to answer any of the questions without receiving full transcripts of the conversations.A spokesman replied nine hours later saying: “We have asked The Daily Telegraph to provide us with the full facts in relation to this matter.” The Telegraph put questions to Mr Allardyce, Mr Curtis and Mr Moloney 12 hours before going to press. All failed to respond.Reconstruction: How Sam Allardyce tried to make as much money as possible as England manager – before his first matchWhat he said about the football world: Allardyce mocks Hodgson and criticises others Last week the England manager followed up his initial meeting by having dinner with representatives of the fictitious firm in a Manchester restaurant, where he discussed dates when he could fly to Singapore.Allardyce, who is paid £3 million a year plus bonuses by the FA, now faces questions about his judgment just weeks after his first and so far only match in charge of the national side. During the meetings he also made a  series of remarks about the previous performances of the England team.He said that Roy Hodgson was “too indecisive” during England’s crucial European Championship defeat to Iceland. He also said that Gary Neville – Hodgson’s assistant – was “the wrong influence” and should have been told to “sit down and shut up”.The Telegraph began investigating corruption in English football last year after receiving information that specific managers, officials and agents were giving or receiving cash payments to secure player transfers. Over the coming days, the Telegraph will detail a series of allegations of  financial impropriety in British football which raise serious questions about the governance and influence of money within the game. During this summer’s transfer window, Premier League clubs spent a record £1.17 billion on player transfers, with Championship clubs adding another £214 million.The disclosures are likely to raise concerns at the FA about corruption  in English football and whether the  industry is adequately regulated.  Allardyce’s comments are likely to lead to questions from his employers at the FA, who expect the England manager effectively to act as an ambassador.A £400,000 agreement with a football agency firm is a potential conflict of interest for an international football manager as it raises the possibility that he is “employed” by a company whose footballer clients could benefit from preferential treatment.Allardyce told undercover reporters that the banned practice was still possible in “all of South America, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, all of Africa” and that the Ecuadorean player Enner Valencia had been under a third party ownership agreement when he signed him for £12 million for West Ham from a Mexican club in 2014. The third party ownership arrangement ended on the transfer and West Ham acquired the player “whole”. Asked if it would be a problem to get involved in third party ownership.  Allardyce said: “It’s not a problem.”Third party ownership involves an agent or an investor owning part of the financial rights to a player, meaning transfer fees are partly paid to them when a player moves clubs, rather than the buying club paying all the money to the selling club.During a meeting at a London hotel in August, Allardyce, who was appointed by the FA on July 22, was happy to discuss third party ownership of players with two undercover reporters posing as representatives of a Far East-based company looking to get a foothold in the lucrative world of English football.He attended the meeting with his agent, Mark Curtis, and his  financial adviser, Shane Moloney, after being approached via the football agent Scott McGarvey, a long-time friend of Allardyce who was unaware of the undercover reporters’ involvement.Mr Moloney asked Allardyce: “What do you think they’re doing on the football transfers financing?… the thing they’re talking about is funding football transfers.”Mr Curtis interjected: “Is that third party ownership a problem though?” Sam Allardyce, centre, with his financial advisor Shane Moloney, left, his agent Mark Curtis, second left, and football agent and former player Scott McGarvey at a meeting in LondonCredit:Telegraph Over the course of two meetings, lasting four hours in total, Allardyce told the fictitious businessmen that it was “not a problem” to bypass the rules introduced by his employers in 2008.He said he knew of certain agents who were “doing it all the time” and added: “You can still get around it. I mean obviously the big money’s here.”During Allardyce’s meetings with the reporters he also:Criticised his predecessor Roy Hodgson, dubbing him “Woy” and saying that he “hasn’t got the personality” for public speaking;Said England’s players were underperforming because they had a “psychological barrier” and “can’t cope”;Suggested that players who were not being played for their club should not be picked for England;Described the FA decision to redevelop Wembley as “stupid”.The issue of “third party ownership” in football has been described as “slavery”. It effectively allows companies to own a stake in a footballer. The FA led the way by banning the practice in 2008 and football’s world governing body, Fifa, followed in 2015.Allardyce, 61, told his prospective employers it was “not a problem” to dodge the “ridiculous” rules. Allardyce replied: “It’s not a problem… we got Valencia in. He was third party owned when we bought him from Mexico.” Mr Moloney made it clear that the ownership arrangement ended with the transfer.Allardyce also gave advice on where third party ownership was still possible, despite the worldwide Fifa ban.Allardyce has not been immune to controversy during his career managing clubs including West Ham United, Sunderland and Bolton Wanderers. In 2006 he was implicated in a BBC Panorama programme which alleged that he had taken “bungs” – a claim he denied. An independent investigation by the former Metropolitan Police commissioner Lord Stevens found no evidence of irregular payments.  Sam Allardyce explained to the businessmen how they could circumvent FA rules which prohibit third parties ‘owning’ playersCredit:Telegraph Sam Allardyce used his position as England manager to negotiate a £400,000 deal and offered advice to businessmen on how to “get around” FA rules on player transfers, The Telegraph can disclose.Before he had even held his first training session as England’s new head coach, Allardyce negotiated a deal with men purporting to represent a Far East firm that was hoping to profit from the Premier League’s billion-pound transfer market.He agreed to travel to Singapore and Hong Kong as an ambassador and explained to the “businessmen” how they could circumvent Football Association rules which prohibit third parties “owning” players.Unbeknown to Allardyce, the businessmen were undercover reporters and he was being filmed as part of a 10-month Telegraph investigation that separately unearthed widespread evidence of bribery and corruption in British football.last_img read more

Hodgson expecting an open game against Chelsea

first_imgCrystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has spoken to the press of his plans and expectations when Chelsea visit Selhurst Park on Sunday.Ahead of Sunday afternoon’s London derby, Roy Hodgson has urged his side to maintain a solid defensive organization against a Chelsea team that intends to attack for the entirety of the game.“I’m expecting the game to be a little bit more open, in terms of we’re expecting Chelsea to attack us without ceasing when they have the ball,” he told the club’s website.“If we can defend well enough, it will give us space to play and maybe the chances will be that much more obvious if you like, or more evident.”In the corresponding fixture last season, Crystal Palace ran out 2-1 winners, recording their first goals and first of the season, and Hodgson wants a repeat of that performance.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. We will take a…“It was very, very important because it was the eighth game and we’d had seven straight losses,” Hodgson recalled.“Strangely enough, in the three losses that followed the initial four losses when I came into the club, we still felt that we were making some progress.“We thought we were on the right track and then against Chelsea, a little bit of fortune came our way, especially with the first goal.“A little bit of fortune came our way and I think it was a good moment. It was a spur for us, the spur which showed us that not only are we on the right track but that with a little bit of luck, we can win games and win them against the Champions of England.”last_img read more

JK Rowling under fire Why fans are not pleased over Albus Dumbledores

first_imgFacebook / Harry PotterFans of JK Rowling are not happy after it was revealed that Albus Dumbledore was, in fact, a gay.As earlier reported, JK Rowling talked about Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald in a Blu-Ray feature of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. In the piece, the British author stated that they [Dumbledore and Grindelwald] were in an intense relationship adding, “But as happens in any relationship, gay or straight or whatever label we want to put on it, one never knows, really, what the other person is feeling.”JK Rowling further added that she is less interested in the sexual side of Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald’s relationship but even believes that there was some sexual dimension to the relationship.”I am in the sense of the emotions they felt for each other, which ultimately is the most fascinating thing about all human relationships.”After this news surfaced, several fans of Harry Potter world took to Twitter and other social media handles to share their disdain towards this revelation. There are several who are apparently not pleased that Rowling is exploring this tangent of Albus Dumbledore’s sexuality so late.One Twitter user posted, “I love Harry Potter so much but JK’s blatant (and failing) attempts to make Dumbledore any gayer without actually having the guts or motive to actually write it… Smh, making a character gay to seem woke or give them more depth… Sloppy, Rowling.” JK RowlingReutersWhile the other stated, “jk Rowling reappearing every 2 months to say something literally no one asked about is me adding more random details to my essay to up my word count.”Acclaimed writer-director Hazel Hayes compared this announcement with James Cameron’s Avatar movie sequels. As per Hayes, just like Avatar sequels, no one asked for this.As mentioned already, Albus Dumbledore’s sexuality is not mentioned in the Harry Potter books and the adapted movies. At the same time, there were speculations that in Fantastic Beasts movie series, we will get to see Dumbledore’s intense sexual relationship drama with Gellert Grindelwald, but as it turned out, it was not touched in detail. Fans are hoping that with Fantastic Beasts 3, JK Rowling would try to cover this area as well.last_img read more

16 dengue patients admitted to Bogura hospital

Photo: UNBThe Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College (SZMC) of Bogura on Friday confirmed that it had identified 16 dengue patients in the last four days, reports UNB.Twelve others with symptoms of dengue fever were also being treated at the hospital, said SZMC deputy director Musa Al Mansur.Dengue patients have been kept under mosquito nets to prevent the spread of the disease, he added.The dengue situation has remained grim this year. The government said 9,256 people had been infected with dengue from January till Thursday. Nine of them have lost their lives.Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection that causes flu-like illness and occasionally develops into a potentially lethal complication called severe dengue.Dengue viruses are spread to people through the bite of infected Aedes species mosquitoes.There is no specific treatment for dengue or severe dengue, but early detection and access to proper medical care lowers fatality rates below 1 per cent.last_img read more

Protocol signed for new coalition government in the north

first_imgThe Republican Turkish Party (CTP), the Peoples’ Party (HP), the Social Democratic Party (TDP) and the Democratic Party (DP) on Thursday signed the protocol for the new coalition ‘government’.According to Turkish Cypriot media, the leaders of the four parties finalised work on the protocol at a meeting they held on Wednesday.The leader of the CTP, Tufan Erhurman, will on Friday present his ‘cabinet’ to Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci. Once approved by Akinci, a vote of confidence will be held in ‘parliament’ next week for the new ‘government’.Speaking at the signing ceremony held at the ‘legislative assembly’, Erhurman said that the four parties had a common understanding on the principles on which they will ‘govern’.The goal will be to introduce sweeping reforms, he said, while the coalition ‘government’ will create a more democratic, free, egalitarian and inclusive society based on the rule of law.Erhurman admitted that the four-party coalition would face challenges in solving outstanding problems but expressed his belief that it would be possible to overcome these problems as the working relationship established by the four parties was proof of this.“Everything is possible through cooperation and goodwill. I believe this…I’ve seen this” he said.The CTP leader also said that the new ‘government’ will work towards ending the division that has emerged recently in Turkish Cypriot society.Erhurman was handed the task of forming a ‘government’ on Tuesday by Akinci. Under the proposed four-way coalition, Erhurman is set to become ‘prime-minister’ with his party taking four ‘ministries’. The HP will have three and DP and TDP will each be allocated two ‘ministries’. The coalition will total 27 MPs out of 50 – giving them a slim working majority.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Government strikes deal on Nicosia waste management

first_imgThe government has struck a deal for the management of Nicosia district’s rubbish, paving the way for the closing down of the Kotsiatis landfill.Following extended haggling with Helector, the company running the Koshi waste management unit, an agreement was reached on Friday.According to a statement from the agriculture ministry, the Central Committee on Changes and Claims (KEAA) approved the supplementary agreement for the operation of the Koshi waste management facility, noting that it ‘undoubtedly serves the public interest’.The agreement provides for paying Helector around € 17.5 million instead of the €19.5m the company was initially asking for and €29.1m resulting from the existing agreement.That money was to cover operation fees owed to the company since January 2015.The final text, the ministry said, will be finalised next week.The conclusion of the supplementary agreement it said, ‘undoubtedly serves the public interest, as it provides for the transfer and management of the Nicosia district waste by the Koshi management facility’.Therefore, it said, the Kotsiatis dump will be closed, ‘thus ensuring public health, complying with the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union condemning the Republic of Cyprus and avoiding a possible unbearable fine’.The agreement, the ministry said, achieved the goals pursued without increasing the total cost of the contract but rather decreasing it by approximately €11m, despite the doubling of the quantities of waste that will be received. This, it said, is due to the significant drop in the unit prices and the discount provided to the contractor’s accrued expenses.The agreement also provides that any arrangements will not be linked with or in any way affect the procedures regarding the possibility of committing criminal offenses  or the procedures regarding the possibility of recovering any overpayments from the contractor.The deal was achieved following a last-ditch attempt to find a solution to the problem of the management of Nicosia district’s waste and the pressing need to finally close down the Kotsiatis landfill. The deadline extension given by the EU to close down the landfill expired at the end of last year and that Cyprus was in a difficult spot.Following a meeting at the presidential palace on Wednesday, President Nicos Anastasiades had given instructions for the competent state services to renegotiate with Helector and if possible reach an agreement based on the terms set by the KEAA.The Kotsiatis rubbish dump was supposed to close in 2009 but after a plan to build a separate waste-management plant in Nicosia was scrapped, it was decided to transfer rubbish from Kotsiatis to the Koshi plant in Larnaca. Procedures for this were delayed following the bribery scandals and ensuing trials concerning Helector, which runs Koshi and Paphos sanitary landfills.The issue was even further delayed following constant rejections by the Central Committee on Changes and Claims (KEAA) of deals agreed between the government and Helector on the management of the Nicosia district’s garbage.The KEAA reportedly rejected last week another deal – the fourth rejected by the committee – because it disagreed with the estimated cost per tonne of garbage, in place since 2016. The committee, according to reports, had demanded lower costs.The EU had initiated an infringement process last May for the delays with Cyprus looking at fines of around €30,000 for each day of delay.You May LikeRest PeriodLooking for lush vegetation, swaying from the salt breeze of the palm trees.Rest PeriodUndoStyleBistroLet’s Not Forget These MTV VMA Fashion FirstsStyleBistroUndoOpoopa10 Best Foods That Fights Cancer & Will Keep You Healthy! | opoopa.comOpoopaUndo LED-lighting the way by 2020UndoGreece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoMorphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Investigation launched after man alleges was beaten up by police

first_imgThe police watchdog has launched an investigation into a complaint from a Limassol farmer who said officers violently beat him up and shot at him while he slept in his car.Chairman of the independent authority investigating complaints against police (Iaiacap) Andreas Paschalides told the Cyprus News Agency on Tuesday that two criminal investigators have been appointed to the case instead of one, which is usually the case.The incident took place on the night two officers were shot at in Ypsonas on May 5.The 56-year-old man was in his car in the Polemidia area, not far from where the shoot-out happened.Lawyer for the farmer Loizos Neophytou claims that it is clear officers that night thought they had come across Elias Mouzos, the man who earlier carried out the shooting against the officers.Neophytou told media that the 56-year-old was sleeping in the driver’s seat of his car outside of his farm.His vehicle was shot at and he woke up in a haze unable to understand what was going on.The farmer was allegedly forcibly removed from the car, handcuffed, put on the ground and “beaten repeatedly.”Neophytou claims the man was kicked and stomped on in his genitals while officers threatened him at gunpoint to shout out ‘sorry’ and ‘thank you’ to the police or else they would pull the trigger.“This isn’t a simple case of police violence against a citizen. This is torture.”While officers were beating him, the lawyer claims they were shouting at him for “attacking one of our own.”“It is obvious they thought he was Mouzos,” though they didn’t call him by that name, Neophytou said.Police maintains that the man appeared to have an injury to his head and refused to get out of the car.He was taken to the local station where he apparently told officers he would go to the hospital for treatment.“The circumstances of the night must be taken into consideration,” police spokesman Andreas Angelides said.Once the complaint was filed, the watchdog sent a letter to the attorney general who gave the go ahead for the appointment of an investigator to the case.According to Paschalides, due to the severity of the complaints and the circumstances surrounding it, Iaiacap appointed two criminal investigators instead of one.They are a former police officer and a lawyer, approved by the attorney general.The findings, when complete, will be sent to the attorney general.You May LikeThebest1.xyz10 Habits You Urgently Need To ChangeThebest1.xyzUndoHealth & Human ResearchWhat Happens When You Eat One Avocado A DayHealth & Human ResearchUndoTopix29 Dogs Living Their Best LivesTopixUndo Brazil prison riot kills 52, with 16 decapitatedUndoClear winner in first round of Kition bishop voteUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

lot of those safety nets stayed in place and to have those funds in commodity programs where we need them"House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway R-Texas and Stabenow have been battling as Conaway has been seeking to direct more funds toward commodity programs such as cotton that are geared toward Southern statesPresident Donald Trump has also dinged Stabenow over the opposition to the farm bill primarily for opposing work requirements for food-stamp recipients But a wide majority of senators are against work requirements meaning any version of that bill included won’t pass"I don’t think that’s as much of a sticking point as the other commodity program is but I think when we get back — we have all intentions of getting back to DC after the election and getting it done" Noem saidIn the

” the event Facebook page reads. As two discredited, seems so obviously flawed. Another piece of the puzzle has come to light The Science news team received a copy of e-mail correspondence between a Nature editor and Haruko Obokata the lead author of the papers that indicates the work initially received as rocky a reception there as at two other journals Cell and Science that had rejected the work previously The e-mail dated 4 April 2013 includes detailed separate criticisms of the two papers and suggestions for new data to support the authors’ claims of a simple and novel way to make stem cells that could form the myriad cell types within a body The Nature editor rejected the papers but left open a window writing “Should further experimental data allow you to address these criticisms we would be happy to look at a revised manuscript” The two papers were published 10 months later A representative for Nature declined to comment on the e-mail correspondence or how Obokata and her co-authors revised their manuscripts But the critiques are similar to those Science reviewers reportedly leveled when considering an earlier report on the work Yesterday the website Retraction Watch published what it says are the cover letter and reviews for a manuscript on stem cells submitted to Science by Obokata (Science’s editorial department would not confirm that the reported reviews were genuine but the news staff has received the identical document from an independent source) The Nature reviewers call the manuscripts and the results they describe “very interesting” “potentially groundbreaking” “highly provocative” and “truly remarkable” In the papers Obokata who works at the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB) in Kobe Japan and her co-authors claimed that bathing blood cells from newborn mice in a mildly acidic solution could prompt them to become powerful stem cells They dubbed the phenomenon stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotency or STAP All three Nature reviewers concluded that the data presented in the submitted manuscripts were not enough to support such radical claims “I would recommend the authors to be extremely cautious in their claims … The authors should look into the actual effect that the treatment elicits in the genome and they should assess genomic instability” one writes “There are several issues that I consider should be clarified beyond doubt because of the potential revolutionary nature of the observations” writes another Foreshadowing the difficulty the study authors have had in providing a clear protocol for others to replicate their work one Nature reviewer writes “Of paramount importance for the legitimacy of this paper is that the authors provide a full step by step account of their method such that the community can rapidly validate the reproducibility of the findings The present method description is minimal and key elements are not properly defined” The reviewer notes that the methods mention the use of B27 medium “but B27 is a medium supplement not a medium itself” Nor does the manuscript mention whether any measures were taken to control the final pH the reviewer writes Since the papers were published labs around the world have tried but failed to produce STAP cells The papers’ authors have posted several different protocols online including one as recently as 3 September The reviewers all point out significant inconsistencies and holes in the data One notes that although a chimera was supposedly made with STAP cells from a strain of black mice the offspring are not black “Please explain” the reviewer writes One reviewer summed up “As it stands and whereas this reviewer does not doubt the data presented the process can be summarized as a ‘magical’ approach and none of the conclusions related to the ‘next-generation’ or amplifications in regenerative medicine is supported experimentally” On 1 April 2014 almost a year after the rejection notice a RIKEN investigating committee concluded the papers were marred by falsification and fabrication and judged Obokata guilty of research misconduct Other authors were spared the misconduct charge but the committee said that senior authors who failed to verify the accuracy of the data “bear heavy responsibility for the research misconduct that resulted from this failure on their part” RIKEN leaders have recently announced the radical restructuring of the RIKEN CDB cutting the staff by half It is still not clear what happened between 4 April 2013 when Nature initially rejected the papers and 20 December 2013 when they were accepted Teruhiko Wakayama a co-author formerly at CDB now at the University of Yamanashi in Kofu says that Obokata shared the reviewers’ comments with him and he made suggestions for revisions pertaining only to the chimeric mice experiments which were his responsibility He says he has no idea if the revised papers were again sent to reviewers Wakayama says it might be a good idea for journals to send reviewer comments to all co-authors as another safeguard against problematic papers “However most co-authors just contribute to one or a few parts of the experiments” he says This means that even if all co-authors receive the reviewer comments they might not be in a position to address identified problems Aparna Yadav has been in the news for all the wrong reasons be it taking out rallies against crime against women or clicking selfies with Prime Minister Narendra Modi 2014 the first customer at Cannabis City"After a video tribute of his political career You’re one of the few people I’ve worked with in all my years in the Senate that have reached and maintained that statusWomen and Transport in Indian Citiesby the Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP) and Safetipin For instance women tend to combine multiple destinations within one trip – to pick up groceries on the way back from office or drop a child off to childcare on the way to work “Gender-responsive transportation recognises not only the differences in the way men and women travel but also addresses the inequities which women and girls face as users transport workers and decision makers” said urban planner and the report’s lead author Sonal Shah The goal of such an approach is to “enable women and girls’ access to social and economic opportunities” Safety concerns means women can’t leave home Momeena’s family moved to Bawana from Yamuna Pushta in the early 2000s Like the other houses on her lane her house has no attached toilet and since her daughter cannot be carried to the community toilet she goes to the toilet on her bed and Momeena just washes the sheets everyday Like the other residents here she gets running water for two hours every morning “Public policy can address inequalities in the household division of labour by supporting initiatives that reduce the amount of time women spend doing unpaid work” noted a 1995 World Bankstudy Improved water sanitation electrification and public transport are examples of policy intervention that would enable women to devote more of their time to income-generating income-augmenting and income-saving activities said the study Momeena’s house is located on one of the many identical narrow bylanes of the slum lined with open sewers goats and chickens running alongside Piles of garbage lie rotting Flies are everywhere But more than the lack of sanitation for most parents the big concern is the lack of safety Described as the ‘most crime-wracked borough in the most crime-wracked city in the country’ outer Delhi (including Bawana) saw 1093 abductions of children – an average of three a day – between 1 June 2014 and 31 March 2015 according to National Crime Records Bureau data For parents this means extraordinary vigilance Many mothers are simply unable to leave their children unattended and unsupervised for long hours Momeena’s younger daughter is looked after by her elder daughter who is in the seventh grade Her parents who live above her keep an eye on the girls Is she worried about their safety when she’s gone Momeena shrugged but looked away Shafeeqan who also uses one name has a husband who doesn’t have a regular job So she needs to supplement the household income which she does by packingagarbattis(incense sticks) at home After sorting them according to size she must make bundles of exactly 44 similar-sizedagarbattis six of these bundles are then slipped into in a tight plastic sheath cover For every 1000 of these bundles of six – roughly a full day’s work – she is paid Rs 25 “It’s very hard work but I don’t have a choice since I can’t go out and work until my daughter gets married” she said Bawana was once slated to be the great industrial hub of Delhi with small and medium enterprises churning out plastic toys shoes handbags garments fans light bulbs biscuits and so on This dream didn’t quite materialise and according to onereport over 5500 of 16000 factories and industrial plots are either vacant or not operational The women prefer factory jobs such as they are because they pay better than piecemeal work done at home even though most pay only a third of the legally-mandated minimum wage of Rs 14052 Jamuna Kumari who quit school after the sixth grade has worked in various factories since she was 13 She earns Rs 8500 at her present job at a readymade garments factory working eight hours a day six days a week Both Jamuna’s parents work in factories as do two elder sisters The youngest is still in school in the 11th grade The responsibility of getting dinner ready falls on this sister “Someone has to cook since we’re all exhausted when we get back” shrugged Jamuna Like most women who work in factories Jamuna prefers to walk to work It’s a 30-minute walk each way along the Bawana Canal a long narrow stretch of water where boys can be seen swimming and older men drinking and doing drugs Petty theft along this canal is so commonplace that it is often not even reported to the police said Jamuna The real danger is of more serious crimes against women including rape and so Jamuna knows better than to walk to work and back alone Groups of boys pass lewd comments but it’s a daily hazard that she has learned to ignore she said Sexual harassment on public spaces in Delhi is now so commonplace that it has become a stereotype – a fact of life that girls and women like Jamuna take in their stride Sexual harassment in public places is rampant and an overwhelming concern of 854 percent women – higher than fears of a violent physical attack and even rape – found a 2010studyof 5010 women and men in Delhi by the NGO Jagori Almost two of three women reported facing sexual harassment between two to five times over the previous year The harassment occurred day and night in places secluded and crowded with most being reported from buses public transport and roadsides found the report Anotherreportby ActionAid released in 2016 found that 79 percent of women surveyed had experienced some form of harassment in public ‘Transportation is the fulcrum that gets women to jobs’ The December 2012 gangrape and murder of a young medical student in a bus in Delhi resulted in a focus on safety in public transportation Various schemes have been announced from GPS tracking and video recording in public transport vehicles in 32 cities to a proposal for women-only ‘Tejaswini’ buses with women drivers and conductors in 2016 in Maharashtra “What we need currently is an economic development and a rights-based approach as well as concrete recommendations and actions to be taken by different stakeholders” said Sonal Shah the urban planner “Since gender is not a core competence in urban local bodies there is a gap in understanding what they need to do” “Transportation is the fulcrum that allows women to participate in the workforce” said Shah Yet the factories prefer hiring younger women said Radha a social worker with Jagori who lives in Bawana The reasons are many: Women workers are paid less and they don’t generally unionise or agitate for their rights When a fire at a firecracker storage unit broke out on 21 January 2018 10 of the 17 workers killed were women The women don’t mind working in the factories because this is the best work they can get for their limited education said Radha But after 40 it is impossible to get any work in the factories Aarti Devi was laid off some six months ago and now does piecemeal work for a fan factory assembling a plastic part that she calls a ‘conductor’ making Rs 90 for every 1000 ‘conductors’ she assembles by screwing eight tiny bolts with an equally tiny screwdriver It’s a job that strains her eyes and so when her kids are home everybody pools in and helps her complete her required 1000 pieces Aarti Devi does piecemeal work for a fan factory assembling a plastic part that she calls a ‘conductor’ making Rs 90 for every 1000 ‘conductors’ It’s a job
