(PHOTO) FRANCE – CROATIA 25:22 (12:10)France reached the final after a semifinal victory over Croatia. The “final before final” as it was labelled, went in French favour, and characterized by Omeyer’s 20 saves, somewhat little less than 50% saves, main reason for French success. The first half went with slight French domination, 12-10 at the half, while in the second despite making 5 goals advantage, the Croatians still managed to fight back and lower as much as 1 goal, but the French still had Omeyer on the goal, and Accambray brought some freshness in the French attack, which was at points clueless. In the end it was France 25-22 Croatia. Narcisse, Honrubia and Abalo each scored 4 goals for France, while Zlatko Horvat scored 6 and Lackovic 4 times for Croatia. read more

High Court to issue ruling in landmark surrogacy case

first_imgTHE HIGH COURT will rule this morning in a landmark case which could pave the way for couples who need to use the services of a surrogate mother to still both be recognised on their child’s birth certificate.Justice Henry Abbott will rule this morning in the case of M R versus the Registrar General, in which a couple who used a surrogate to carry their twins to birth argue that their rights to be identified as their children’s parents are being denied.The State has insisted that only the woman who gives birth to a child can be recognised on its birth certificate as its mother.The outcome has major implications for the family, as the mother recognised on a birth certificate is legally viewed as a child’s mother – and is therefore given legal standing in matters including inheritance, while the genetic mother would be given no legal recognition.In this case the woman who gave birth to the children is the sister of their genetic mother – and both consent to having the genetic mother recognised on the children’s birth certificate.However, the ruling may need to take into account the possibility of other circumstances arising in the future, where the genetic and birth mothers could both seek inclusion in the birth certificate.The couple has argued that the State-endorsed practice where DNA tests are used to establish parenthood is in conflict with its stance on registrations, as a DNA test would establish that the genetic mother was not the woman who gave birth to the child.last_img read more

Mick Wallace Is it appropriate that Martin Callinan was in Garda HQ

first_imgMick Wallace: Is it appropriate that Martin Callinan was in Garda HQ ‘several days last week’? Callinan is one of the central characters in the new tribunal into the Maurice McCabe scandal. Mar 29th 2017, 4:27 PM 31,732 Views She is a law unto herself. Does the Minister know why? It is because the government let her be so. She will remain a law unto herself and the Garda Síochána force is secondary to her interests and concerns. The government is allowing it to happen. The government will eventually get rid of her, but it will be too late and too much damage will be done.Donohoe responded that the “overwhelming prerogative” of this government is the integrity and reputation of An Garda Síochána.“It is part of the glue that holds any society together – the respect for and independence of a police force. That is the very reason that, over the last number of years, in response to many difficulties that have emerged, we have put in place bodies like the Policing Authority,” he told Wallace in the Dáil.It is the very reason we are now in a situation where the Policing Authority itself is the body that makes appointments at senior level. It is the very reason we have GSOC, and the government is now engaged in consultation with GSOC regarding whether further powers are merited for that organisation to respond to the cultural change that we know is needed.“All of this is driven by our acknowledgement of the need for a strong, respected An Garda Síochána that has no shadows or clouds over it.”In response to a query from about Wallace’s comments in the Dáil, the Department of Justice said:“As the Tribunal of Inquiry has now been established it would not be appropriate to comment on any matters relating to it. In particular, the Department has no role in relation to who or who may not be in Garda Headquarters.”The Garda Press Office said it is “not the policy of An Garda Síochána to comment on named individuals”.The Disclosures Tribunal sits tomorrow morning at Dublin Castle.Read: Mícheál Martin withdraws party support for Nóirín O’Sullivan>Read: Whistleblower David Taylor receives letter reminding him he may still face discipline > 54 Comments Share146 Tweet Email Subscribe for more videoscenter_img Source: INDEPENDENT TD MICK Wallace has questioned whether it was appropriate for the former Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan to have spent time at Garda Headquarters in Dublin recently.Wallace was speaking under privilege in the Dáil today, as calls continue for current Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan to step down over the breath test scandal.“Does the Minister think it is appropriate for former Commissioner Callinan to have been in Phoenix Park headquarters on several days last week?” he asked Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Paschal Donohoe, who was taking questions in the chamber this afternoon.“Does he think it is appropriate that the former Commissioner and the present Commissioner would have access to the whole apparatus of An Garda Síochána, a pleasure that will not be afforded to [whistleblowers] Sergeant Maurice McCabe and Superintendent David Taylor?” Wallace continued.Included in the terms of reference of the Charleton Tribunal into the Maurice McCabe scandal is an examination of telephone and text message contact between former press office head Superintendent David Taylor, Callinan and O’Sullivan.It will also investigate whether a meeting took place between Callinan and then TD John McGuinness in a hotel car park in January 2014. McGuinness claims this happened ahead of a mooted appearance by McCabe at the Public Accounts Committee of which he was chair.It has previously been reported that former Commissioner Callinan had met with O’Sullivan as he considered whether to request legal representation from An Garda Síochána.O’Sullivan has put together a team at Garda Headquarters to co-ordinate the garda response to the tribunal and Wallace was today critical of her approach:“The Minister should ask the Commissioner did she consult with John Barrett at human resources before she made appointments to her special unit to deal with the Charleton inquiry,” the Wexford TD said.John Barrett wrote a letter to the head of legal affairs, Ken Ruane, pointing out the corporate risk to An Garda Síochána in setting up this unit, staffed with personal friends and associates. He suggested a firm of outside solicitors should be brought in to act as a conduit between An Garda Síochána and the Charleton inquiry but he was ignored.

Watch Boston Dynamics New Robot Can Stack Boxes Like a Boss

first_img Review: ‘Daemon X Machina’ Has Big Robots, Small Fun on Nintendo SwitchThis Robot Is Equal Parts Lawnmower and Snow Blower Stay on target They’ve given us a dynamic humanoid that does parkour and backflips and a robo dog that twerks, and now Boston Dynamics has unveiled a box-stacking bot that could be king of the warehouse.On Thursday the company showed off a “reimagined” version of Handle, a mobile manipulation robot designed for logistics, on their YouTube channel.The original version of Handle, created in 2017, is a research-robot that stands 6.5 feet tall, travels at 9 mph, and jumps 4 feet vertically.This new Handle robot has been upgraded as a mobile manipulation robot designed for warehouse tasks and logistics, and would probably be Jeff Bezos’ dream Amazon employee.The robot, which  now sports an overhead suction-cup gripper instead of twin arms, can efficiently stack multiple heavy boxes on a pallet, as well as unload them, according to Boston Dynamics.“Handle autonomously performs mixed SKU pallet building and depalletizing after initialization and localizing against the pallets. The on-board vision system on Handle tracks the marked pallets for navigation and finds individual boxes for grasping and placing,” the company said.The boxes shown in the video weigh around 12 pounds, but the company says that Handle is designed to be able to manage boxes weighing up to 33 pounds.“This version of Handle works with pallets that are 48 inches deep and 68 inches tall,” Boston Dynamics said.More on Use Robots to Get Bees and Fish to ‘Talk’ to Each OtherWatch: Here’s the First Four-Legged Robot to Do a BackflipRobots Have Disassembled 700,000 Rockets for the US Militarylast_img read more

Legislative Council to consider sexual harassment working group

first_imgAlaska State Capitol in February. The Legislative Council is scheduled to discuss forming a sexual harassment policy working group on Tuesday. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)The Alaska Legislative Council is scheduled to discuss forming a sexual harassment policy working group Tuesday.Listen nowLawmakers are considering how to revise the Legislature’s sexual harassment policy to ensure that harassment reports are handled appropriately.Juneau Democratic Rep. Sam Kito III, the council’s chairman, said lawmakers need to make sure they’re protecting victims of harassment.“There are some questions about how and when to report and also questions about what kinds of training might need to occur with legislators and staff in order to make sure everybody’s aware of the policy that exists,” Kito said.Recent concerns about sexual harassment both outside Alaska and in Juneau have led lawmakers to consider making changes to the policy.The Legislature’s sexual harassment policy was last updated in January 2000. It spells out what harassment is and how people should report it. The policy also said all reports will be investigated and employees who violate the policy will be subject to disciplinary action.Anchorage Republican Rep. Charisse Millett, a member of the council, said a sexual harassment policy working group could become a permanent subcommittee that would review the policy every year.“Is there under-reporting, is there over-reporting, is there any reporting?” Millett said of the kind of questions a working group could ask. “And how does that work, and how do we make sure that employees and, you know, folks in this building – whether it’s a constituent, whether it’s a staffer, whether it’s the media, we just need to make sure that we have the best policies in place to protect our employees.”Anchorage Democratic Rep. Harriet Drummond is an alternate council member who is scheduled to fill in on Tuesday. She said one challenge for reporting on lawmakers is the limited means of reprimanding them. Each chamber can censure or expel its members. Otherwise, it’s up to voters to weigh allegations. But Drummond said the working group could benefit the Legislature.“We have to provide a lot more clarity throughout this policy,” Drummond said. “And also, …  just in looking at all of these personnel policies in general, it needs some good, close scrutiny.”Before the policy was added to the council agenda, some lawmakers said they wanted policy changes to be in place by early next legislative session in January.last_img read more

Rules are rules Sunil Gavaskar slams people asking Indian team to boycott

first_imgICC has passed its verdict on MS Dhoni’s gloves, the BCCI has decided not to escalate the matter any further and all the focus now shifts to the clash between India and Australia at the Oval. However, there are still debates over this verdict and few people believe India should forfeit the competition.Well, not Sunil Gavaskar. He slammed such theories and said that the rules are in place for a reason and they should be followed without any exceptions. “Rules are there for a reason and they are meant to be followed. That’s why they are there,” Gavaskar told India Today.The former Indian captain also cited the example of Moeen Ali, who was fined by ECB when he sported a wristband back in 2014 and said Dhoni should be no different.’Once the rules are passed, you can do nothing about it’ MS Dhoni wearing the glove containing the ‘Balidaan Badge’IANS”I think Moeen Ali was fined by the ECB when he was wearing a wristband supporting a particular cause in 2014. Last time I checked, MS Dhoni was over 21 years old and wearing the gloves or not is now entirely his call,” he further added.Further clarifying his stance, Gavaskar said that the rules are passed for a reason and all the players should abide by them.”Other countries players’ might do something as well. If you want to object, do that before the rules are passed. Once the rules are passed, you can do nothing about it,” he said.He also said that all this controversy will not effect Dhoni’s performance on the field and he will continue to be an important member of the side with his brilliant wicket-keeping and taking the catches behind the stumps. Virat Kohli and teamRobert Cianflone/Getty Images”This team is focused on winning the World Cup. They know Dhoni will deal with it. As far as I am concerned, as long as he keeps affecting those quick stumpings and keeps taking those brilliant catches, whether he is wearing gloves or not does not matter to me. What he wears and what he does not, I don’t give a toss,” Gavaskar added.India will next take on Australia in their second World Cup match at Kennington Oval, London on Sunday. This match promises to be a real humdinger as both sides are in form – Australia have won 10 matches on the bounce, while India are a team in form and had a complete game in their opening fixture against South Africa.last_img read more

Preparations afoot to net Hilsa as ban ends

first_imgHilsa fish file photoFishermen in coastal districts are preparing to net hilsa as the 22-day government ban on fishing the delicious fish comes to an end on Monday, reports news agency UNB.Earlier, the government imposed a ban on catching, selling, hoarding and transportation of hilsa in different rivers for 22 days from October 12 in 27 districts to boost Hilsa output through protection of the mother fish during its peak breeding season.During a visit to the KB Bazar Ghat in Bagerhat on Saturday, the UNB correspondent saw the fishermen preparing their trawlers and fishing nets to go to the Bay of Bengal to catch hilsa.Trawlers were being towed to rivers from the dockyard. Fishing nets, fuel and daily essentials were being loaded in the trawlers. Thousands of fishermen are waiting to start their journeys to the sea.Locals alleged that fishermen from India enter Bangladesh water territories illegally to catch Hilsa. They demanded government steps so that the Indian fishermen cannot enter Bangladesh territory.Officials at the Fisheries Department, Bangladesh Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, district and upazila administration, police, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) conducted drives to prevent Hilsa fishing during the period.Besides, executive magistrates conducted mobile courts and punished a good number of fishermen who violated the ban.Sheikh Idris Sheikh, president of Bagerhat Coastal Fishermen Association, also alleged Indian fishermen enter Bangladesh territory and catch fish during the restricted period.Zia Haider Chowdhury, district fisheries officer, said: “Now we’ve to save Hilsa fry (under 10 inches). The authorities will impose a ban on catching Hilsa fry from November 1 to June 30 in coastal areas.”“If jatka (hilsa fry) can get the chance to get mature, around five and a half lakh tonnes of hisa could be netted next year,” the official added.last_img read more

Bangladesh govt encroaches on forest land

first_imgDifferent government and private organisations have recently applied for allotment of 16,000 acres of forest land for building offices, industries and other infrastructures, officials concerned said.The government has already allotted a total of 167,689 acres of forest land for such purposes that have brought down the national forest area to below optimum rate.In such a context, the environment and forest ministry has sought opinion of the prime minister’s office on whether to give allotment to various entities in the name of development.”We can’t senselessly allot arable and forest land to whoever wants it. We have sought the prime minister’s opinion in this regard,” said Anwar Hossain, water resources minister, who was earlier in charge of the environment and forest ministry.The environment and forest ministry sent a letter dated 27 December to the principal secretary to the prime minister’s office where a meeting is scheduled to be held on Monday.The ministry wants to raise the national forest area to 20 per cent from 17.62 per cent of the total land area in order to meet the UN development goals, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), according to the letter.Use of forest land for development purposes such as bulding roads, and setting up electricity and gas transmission lines is increasing, despite legal restriction, the forest ministry said.It requested the prime minister’s office not to allow encroachment on forest land in the name of implementing development projects.In case the govenment has to use forest land for meeting the emergency needs of the state, the ministry recommended allotting equal amount of land in favour of the forest department to make up for the loss of forest area.In recent times, the government allotted 4,835 acres of forest land to make camps for Rohingya people who fled Myanmar’s persecution and have taken shelter in Cox’s Bazar.Convenor of Bangladesh Citizen Platform for SDGs, Debapriya Bhattacharya told Prothom Alo that if the forest land is allotted to others, it would not be able to mitigate effects of climate change on agriculture.He pointed out that the forest land decreased alarmingly in the past 15 years. “Expansion of forest area is essential to achieve SDGs,” Debapriya added.Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) is constructing headquarters for its battalion-54 on 60 acres of reserved forest in Baghaihat, Rangamati, without any permission, chief forest conservator Safiul Alam Chowdhury said in a 17 December 2017 letter to the forest ministry secretary.However, the BGB applied for 39.95 acres of land for construction of the headquarters of 54 BGB battalion.Defending the BGB’s position, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan said, “Land was sought for various purposes including setting up of BOP (border outpost). We’ve formulated a policy in this regard and the forest department should take steps as per the policy.”On 18 August last year, BGB authorities sought allotment of forest land in Dipuchhara, Dhupshil, and Uttar Lakkachhara of Babuchhara in the hill tracts for setting up border outposts. Request was made for allotment of five acres of land in Naikhongchhari, Bandarban, to set up border outpost.The textiles directorate has recently requested the forest department to allot five acres of land for setting up Capasia Textiles Engineering College, in Gazipur. There are Gozari trees on the proposed land.On 5 May 2017, Coast Guard applied for one acre of land for carrying its different activities.The forest ministry said the local government engineering department, union parishads and Palli Bidyut Samity have constructed roads and sewerage lines at different places by destroying Shaalban (Shaal forest), ignoring the ban on the construction of roads through the reserved forest.In a letter to the local government division, the environment and forest ministry pointed out that forest officers were presented as opponents of the local people during construction of roads through the forest.The ministry cited a recent case in Gazipur where the LGED was conducting Gosinga-Rajabari road, different roads at Kachighata and Kaliakoir. The ministry also regretted that it is difficult for the department to tackle such situation with scarce manpower.The LGED has constructed Teknaf-Shaplapur road in Cox’s Bazar by felling trees and cutting hills in the reserved forest area. Cases were filed against upazila engineers and contractors but to no avail.The LGED also constructed roads in the reserved forest in Bandarban.Former chief forest conservator Younus Ali told Prothom Alo that such situation is often created since there are no land management mechanism and policy. Still, he insisted that the ministry has to be “very strict”.Bangladesh representative of International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Ishtiak Uddin Ahmed noted that the forest land does not merely mean some trees.”Wildlife and bio-diversity are its essential components,” he said adding that development projects could be implemented elsewhere to save forest and environment.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Rabiul Islam.last_img read more

Metro Last Light requires a GeForce GTX Titan to run optimally

first_imgGames consoles have dominated the games market for several years now, with the side effect being the PC usually just gets a console port. And with the Xbox 360 and PS3 now several years old, their games don’t exactly stress the hardware inside a modern PC.With the Xbox 720 and PS4 both shifting to an x86 architecture, that’s sure to change in the next couple of years. But before then we have a game being released that will truly push the limits of your PC if you have the hardware to run it optimally.Metro: Last Light is a first-person shooter that has been developed by 4A Games and is being published by Deep Silver. It’s set for release on May 14 and is the sequel to Metro 2033. With the release date so close, Deep Silver has released details of what kind of PC hardware you’ll need to run it, specifying minimum, recommended, and optimum specs.To play the game you only need a 2.2GHz dual core processor, 2GB RAM, Windows XP, and either a GeForce GTS 250 or Radeon 4000 DirectX 9 card. That’s a minimum though, and Deep Silver suggest you have at least Windows Vista, a 2.6GHz quad core chip, 4GB RAM, and a DirectX 11 graphics card like the GeForce GTX 580/660 Ti or Radeon HD 7870.It’s the optimum settings that really caught my attention, though. Anyone who has played Metro 2033 knows how gorgeous it can look with a decent rig. I expect that to be the same case with Last Light, and 4A Games will have attempted to use every ounce of performance you can add to a system. That means, if you have one of those $1,000 GeForce GTX Titan graphics, Metro: Last Light will take full advantage of it, as the gameplay trailer below should hint at.In fact, the optimum settings for the game actually read like the ultimate gaming rig at the moment. You’ll need a 3.4GHz Core i7 processor, 8GB RAM, Windows 7 or 8, and a 6GB GeForce GTX Titan. That’s not a cheap system to build, but will future-proof your gaming for 2 or 3 years at least.last_img read more

Three small steps to zero hunger

first_imgHow many times has it happened that you ordered too much food and left it unfinished? Many times, I guess. Food wastage is a universal problem and even after much has been said and done about it, many countries have failed to control it. And India is getting worse than ever. Among 118 developing countries, India ranked 97, in the Global Hunger Index (GHI) 2016. This data is sufficient enough to show how serious the condition is.While we grapple with the crisis of food wastage, three class 11th girls, have already taken small little steps to minimise this wastage. Vandita Bhartiya, Rhea Kapuria, and Ikshita Puri strongly believe in the words of Mother Teresa – “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” Their journey towards zero hunger began when the three girls went to a restaurant in Greater Kailash 1 for a light snack. “When we couldn’t finish what we ordered in that restaurant and saw the amount of food we wasted, it hit us really hard. Here we are sitting in an air conditioned restaurant, wasting food, and outside, dozens of people are begging to have a single meal. We just thought of the fact that we could have given the leftover food to these people instead of throwing it away.” Also Read – Add new books to your shelfTo make a point clear, when you order something, whatever is left on your plate is thrown away but the food in serving bowls can be used again. It is not always that the people order more and don’t finish, sometimes the restaurants also serve more than sufficient.These girls made it their business to know about the amount of food wasted and what is being done to it. “We spoke to the managers of several restaurants and found out about the wasted food. In most of the restaurants, the leftover food was consumed by their staff but even after that, much of it was thrown away because the food gets contaminated,” explained Ikshita. They reached out to over 50 restaurants, out of which only a handful agreed to help their cause. “In the beginning of our endeavour, we also approached a bakery and they agreed to help us. But we couldn’t accept their offer because we don’t have a cold storage vehicle to take it from one place to another,” sighed Vandita. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveCurrently, these students have come to an understanding with only two restaurants to take leftover food – one in Saket and the other in Greater Kailash – and one whole slum area known as Sudhar Camp slum in Kalkaji, with approximately 500 people to feed. They have a single vehicle to go back and forth with oodles of food with a deadline to deliver it on the same day to avoid contamination in the sweltering heat. “We have kind of adopted that area in Kalkaji,” said Ikshita as the two of them agreed with her. Many restaurants don’t want to get associated with a novice, even if their intentions are good. In this case, the food might get contaminated; making a person sick and the restaurants will be blamed ultimately.For the future, the trio plans to deliver food to nearby slum areas of the restaurant they get food from but the current situation demands some more restaurants in the Kalkaji area to help them in their cause. “We picked up this slum purposely because traveling can damage the food. The restaurants that we have are in Saket and GK, so we send one car to Saket and the other (if we get one from any of our friends) to GK and then deliver the food to that area in Kalkaji. The slum looks small from the outside but if you go into the lanes, you will realize that just two restaurants are not enough to fulfill their needs,” said Ikshita.Even though they have scant resources and time, these girls are determined to fulfill the needs of this slum area. “We want that if we are covering an area then we do it properly, there should be no cutbacks on food. So right now our focus is that particular area in Kalkaji,” said Vandita.”We do this work on weekends and we inform the restaurants beforehand. Now the restaurants are attached to us so they also call us. And in the slum area also we have a person who we call up and tell them that we will be getting food for the day,” added Ikshita. While constantly thinking about how to get more and more restaurants to cooperate with them, Ikshita said, “Our steps are small but even if we reach 20-25 people, we will be satisfied because it’s for a good cause.” Zero Hunger by these students is just a small dent in a bigger problem but with support from people and restaurants, they can make a huge difference in the lives of thousands of people.last_img read more
