River rafting ban: Debate rages between adventure sports cos, environmentalists

first_imgBy Pawan Kumar Singh New Delhi, Jun 22 (PTI) When we think of river rafting, Rishikesh strikes our mind instantly as it is the perfect weekend getaway far from the maddening crowd, with rafting being one of the popular activities.River rafting generates adrenaline rush to adventure enthusiasts as they ride down the thundering rapids of the Ganges with inflatable boats, carbon paddles and helmets.The Uttarakhand High Court’s order imposing a ban on river rafting and paragliding across the state has come as a shocker to adventure sports companies and adventure tourists who say a blanket ban is not the solution.The order has, however, been welcomed by the environmentalists who said the high court order was in interest of the environment and ecology.Arvind Bhardwaj of Red Chilli Adventure said the high court order will hit the rafting business very hard as it would render the people jobless.”I am involved in adventure activities in Rishikesh for the last 24 years. I am surprised to hear of this order. The state government had already issued guidelines for rafting.”To put a ban on white river rafting and paragliding across the state is very harsh direction. Our business has come to a standstill. This is the peak season for tourists. Now we will have to cancel all the bookings. Huge loss would be suffered by us. Putting a blanket ban is not the solution. A proper monitoring has to be put in place for effective implementation of laws,” Bhardwaj told PTI.advertisementWhen contacted, environment activist Vikrant Tongad, who had also filed a petition in National Green Tribunal against camping along the river, welcomed the high court decision, saying it was a very good order which would go a long way in protection of the environment and ecology.”The NGT has already ordered a ban on camping activities within 100 metres of the Ganga from Kaudiyala to Rishikesh. The high court order will go a long way in saving the pristine nature of the river. This is a very good order. Now it is for the Uttarakhand government to properly implement the ban,” Tongad said.Kiran Todaria, president of the Indian Association of Professional Rafting Outfitters (IAPRO), said the livelihood of many families will be affected by this order.”I have not seen the high court order yet. But going by the media report, it looks very absurd. I cannot understand how rafting can cause pollution in river. Banning any activity is not the solution. It is an industry that provides jobs to almost 10,000 families,” he said.Gurgaon resident Pradyumna Sisodia, who was planning to go to Rishikesh this weekend for rafting, said he had already booked a camp site but got a cancellation call from the tour operator last night who told him about the high court order.”Our family was too excited for this trip but our bookings were cancelled at the last minute. I don’t have any idea about the high court order but I don’t understand how rafting would cause pollution to the river,” he said.Rishi Sachdeva of Cradle of Life, who runs campsite on the banks of Ganges in Shivpuri, also told PTI that the order will have a very negative impact on the business.”This order will hit local markets as well. Mostly, the youth come to Rishikesh for camping and rafting. In their absence the local livelihood will be affected to a great extent. Since last night we have cancelled 70-80 per cent bookings. Our major income comes in the weekends but due to this order all reservations have been cancelled,” Sachdeva said.Water rafting business in Uttarakhand is estimated to be generating a turnover of Rs 75-80 crore annually and employs nearly 10,000 people including guides, cooks, instructors and drivers.Underlining the need to regulate adventure sports like white river rafting and paragliding, the Uttarakhand High Court’s division bench of justices Rajiv Sharma and Lokpal Singh in a recent order directed the state government to prepare a transparent policy on adventure sports in the state within two weeks.Till such a policy is framed, no paragliding, white river rafting and other water sports shall be permitted in the state of Uttarakhand, the court said.The high court order came on a PIL filed by Rishikesh-based Hari Om Kashyap. alleging issuance of illegal leases in favour of private parties in Ganga riverbed.

Gov’t to Boost Provisions for Most Vulnerable

first_imgThe Government is moving to strengthen social protection and security for the most vulnerable in the society, through the development of a “unique combination” of projects.Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller made the announcement during her contribution to the 2013/2014 Budget debate in the House of Representatives on April 30 under the theme: ‘Jamaica: Going for Growth and Development, Unleashing our Full Potential.’She said that objectives will be achieved through better targeting and coordination of existing programmes such as the Rural Economic Development Initiatives (REDI) and the Steps to Work programme. “Those at greatest risk will be among the first to participate in these re-designed programmes,” she stated.Mrs. Simpson Miller explained that this strategy will ensure that women, who are often among the most vulnerable and placed at greatest risk by rural and inner-city poverty, will have access to training and appropriate financing to participate as shareholders in cottage industries.She noted that the Government is “duty bound to exercise the greatest care that every dollar is more wisely spent through better coordination and targeted intervention to protect the most vulnerable members of the Jamaican family.”By Latonya Linton, JIS Reporterlast_img read more


Eagle Bulk Opts to Sell Another Bulker, Stays in Red

first_imgzoom After it earlier reached deals to sell three of its bulkers, the owner and operator of Supramax dry bulk vessels Eagle Bulk Shipping has decided to dispose of another ship for net proceeds of USD 4.2 million.The vessel in question is the 2002-built MV Kittiwake, which features 53,146 dwt.During the second quarter of the year, the company concluded the earlier announced sales of MV Peregrine and MV Falcon, raising a total of USD 5.8 million, and subsequently finalized the sale of MV Harrier for net proceeds of USD 3.2 million.The company opted for the additional sale as it reported a net loss of USD 22.5 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared to a net loss of USD 27.5 million seen in the same quarter a year earlier.Net revenues for the quarter increased to USD 25.6 million from USD 22.6 million recorded in the second quarter of 2015, mainly due to an increased number of freight voyages as well as increased available days due to chartered in vessels.In July, the company entered into an agreement to raise USD 88 million in gross proceeds through a sale of its common stock, which is scheduled to close on August 10, 2016, with proceeds targeted for the acquisition of dry bulk vessels and general corporate purposes.“In the midst of a historically weak drybulk market, Eagle Bulk’s second quarter was bookended by two milestone achievements as we seek to re-position the company for future success. First, we entered the quarter having completed a comprehensive balance sheet recapitalization that significantly improved our long-term financial flexibility. Then, subsequent to the quarter’s close, we raised nearly USD 90 million in growth capital through a common stock private placement,” Gary Vogel, Eagle Bulk’s CEO, said.He added that these moves are expected to enable the company to commence a fleet growth and renewal program while developing its commercial operating platform.last_img read more

Moroccos 2nd Surveillance Satellite Mohammed VIB Launches into Orbit

Rabat – The much-anticipated satellite split from its airspace Vega rocket at 2:42 a.m. Moroccan time.According to NASA Spaceflight, the final countdown before the satellite left the ground began nine hours and ten minutes before Vega’s scheduled liftoff.NASA Spaceflight also gave details about the launch, saying that the “rocket’s key systems were powered up, with the multi-functional unit (MFU) that controls Vega’s electronics, turned on at the T-6-hour mark in the count.” The final two steps before the satellite was launched came about 145 minutes and 75 minutes before liftoff, “with the rocket reaching launch readiness at the fifty-minute mark in the countdown.”Like Morocco’s first satellite, the second satellite was named after King Mohammed VI. Beginning orbit in 2017, the Mohammed VI-A satellite was also launched by the Vega Rocket.Mohammed VI-B is the French Arianespace company’s ninth air projects this year. Through the launch, Vega reached a record of 13 successful launches, according to Space News.Thales Alenia Space produced the satellite as the system’s prime contractor and Airbus as c-prime, according to NASA spaceflight.Read Also: Mohammed VI–B Satellite, Outstanding Value to Morocco’s DevelopmentThe Mohammed VI-B satellite is capable of taking double the number of images that Mohammed VI-A can take with a resolution of up to 70 centimeters.The satellites’ usesBoth Morocco’s satellites will work together to ensure strong surveillance for the country’s border and coasts and to manage natural disasters.Weighing 1,110 kilograms, the satellite will also be used for mapping and agricultural monitoring.The satellite will be piloted from Morocco and will fly at the same orbit as the first satellite, 620 kilometers above the earth.On November 13, Arianespace said that the satellite will be complementary to Mohammed VI-A and will “jointly enable a faster coverage of zones of interests.” The satellite information will also help Morocco to have a better observation of the territory, in terms of forest fire control and anticipation. The North African country can anticipate climate variations such as drought or floods. It will also help in case of natural disasters such as earthquakes or fires by showing a cartography of affected areas.The government plans for the satellites to help security agencies track any terrorists or drug trafficking across borders, especially in the Sahel regions.Each satellite has a role to provide military services information to ensure national security. The government acknowledged throughout the year that the first satellite helped the country to track illegal activities of the Polisario Front. Morocco is the third African country to have a reconnaissance satellite after Egypt and South Africa. read more


UNbacked fund launched to help Africa preserve cultural and natural heritage

A United Nations-backed fund to help the States of sub-Saharan Africa improve the preservation of their cultural and natural heritage was launched today in South Africa, which donated $3.5 million to help the project, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said.The African World Heritage Fund will also be used to help boost the number of African sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, because sub-Saharan Africa is “severely under-represented” on the current list despite great cultural and natural diversity in the region, the Paris-based agency said.Under the Fund, grants will be awarded to help African States Parties to the UNESCO World Heritage Convention prepare national inventories of their heritage sites and prepare nomination dossiers for inscription onto the World Heritage List. Currently 40 sub-Saharan African States have ratified the World Heritage Convention although only 24 have sites on the World Heritage List.Conservation and management of heritage properties in general, including those already inscribed on the World Heritage List, will also be eligible for funding. This will also be the case with rehabilitation assistance for properties on the List of World Heritage in Danger.Along with South Africa’s donation, India and Israel have also pledged contributions and UNESCO said that the private sector is also being encouraged to contribute and is expected to become a key partner in the future.The Fund will be run by a Board of Trustees – all experts in heritage preservation – including two for each of the African Union’s five regions and three additional members with permanent observer status. UNESCO and the African Union will have one observer each on the Board. read more


UN representative warns Liberians against mob justice after outbreak of violence

“In our fight against crime, we must always remember that we cannot, and must not take the law into our own hands,” said the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in Liberia Alan Doss.“Mob justice is wrong! It is a violation of the law,” he added, just days after two military police officers with the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) were injured trying to contain a mob attack amid violence following the murder of a local man. “We must allow justice to take its course even though the wheels of justice sometimes turn slowly.”Mr. Doss’ comments also came a day after the Mission’s most recent report on human rights noted that “the judicial system continued to fail to uphold constitutional guarantees and international human rights standards binding on Liberia.”Corruption in the judicial system is an “extremely serious problem… [that] remains an enormous challenge to the rule of law and thus to long-term peace and stability,” the report said.It noted that there is “systemic abuse by magistrates” who operate without effective disciplinary measures, allowing them to continue working even after they have “been found guilty of misconduct amounting to corruption.”There are huge case backlogs and prolonged pre-trial detentions compounded by inefficient investigations, prosecution and hearings, the report added, noting that suspects are frequently released without ever facing trial.Still, Mr. Doss argued for patience. “UNMIL and other partners are working closely with the Government and the judiciary to help reinforce the rule of law and strengthen the administration of justice in Liberia,” he said, adding that he would work for bail regulations to be tightened.More than 90 per cent of those incarcerated are awaiting trial and detention standards are well below minimum standards – particularly medical care, which is generally absent. Pre-trial detainees are not separated from convicts and escapes and illegal releases from some facilities was “a particular problem” during the May-July period covered in the report.Besides allegations of excessive force, there is a shortage of police officers in some areas which encourages vigilante action, the report noted, adding that five circuit courts are still not in operational while “others tried only a fraction of the number of cases listed for trial.”“UNMIL and the UN Police are fully committed to assisting the Liberian National Police become a modern and effective police force that can ensure public order and safety,” added Mr. Doss, noting that the Netherlands has just pledged 2 million euros to help with this effort.The shortage of police in rural areas, where there is also no independent monitoring, leaves isolated communities “particularly vulnerable risk of harmful traditional practices, especially trial by ordeal” which lead to serious injuries and deaths, the report noted.A report last month from Secretary-General Kofi Annan said judicial reform was proceeding “albeit at a slow pace” but noted that more consultants are being hired and that a law reform commission is being established, although its success will depend on adequate international funding. read more


Tumblr Outage Due to Maintenance Error

first_imgTumblr returned yesterday, after a full day out of service. According to the blog hosting site, the outage was not due to a rumored 4Chan attack. Rather it the result of some planned maintenance gone bad.“Yesterday afternoon, during planned maintenance that was not intended to interrupt service, an issue arose that took down a critical database cluster,” wrote the company ina blog post. “This brought down our entire network while our engineers worked feverishly to restore these databases and bring your blogs back online.”Tumblr called the error “unacceptable.” The site, which has been attempting to deal with its own rapid growth came back online yesterday at around 4PM PT. “We’ve nearly quadrupled our engineering team this month alone, and continue to distribute and enhance our architecture to be more resilient to failures like today’s,” wrote Tumblr. “Sorry we let you down today.”last_img read more


Citizens Arrest Jimbalaya turns robber over to Police

first_img ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Related Items:#magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, February 22, 2017 – Residents tired of the crime are increasingly taking matters into their own hands; the latest report of an arrest of a known robber came last night and it was caught on camera.A Popular lounge owner was robbed, had video surveillance which clearly showed the face of that culprit as he unwittingly looked directly into the camera and revealed to the owner a face, he recognized.   After calling the police, according to the cell phone video, and waiting an hour, he says, that businessman decided to go and get the man on the video himself.Colin Williams, better known as Jimbalaya is seen manhandling the alleged suspect, trying to tie him to a steel bar door and eventually turning the man over to two police officers.  Photos of what his security cameras caught are in circulation; and it does appear to be the exact same man from the security footage in that cell phone video in the citizens’ arrest.   It was a relatively smooth arrest by Jimbalaya at his Kew Town bar; Police took over and led the man away in handcuffs.Residents are hoping that charges can stick and this suspect, once found guilty can be locked away and off the streets.  Reports are that crime has decreased in the TCI, but brazen home invasions and armed attacks appear to be more frequent and certainly are more violent.Police confirmed late today that they still have that man caught by Jimbalaya in custody.#MagneticMediaNews Recommended for you Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provolast_img read more


Microsoft tests 50person Skype calls

first_img $59 at eBay Share your voice 40 Photos See all the best laptops from CES 2019 HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) Comment Microsoft Microsoft rolled out a new version of Skype to its Insider Preview program this week that expands the maximum number of people on a call from 25 to 50, as well as making audible notifications optional, for all platforms.According to the update note, “When you start a call in these large groups, it will send a notification instead of ringing all the members, to not interrupt those who can’t join. With this update you will also see that the audio and video buttons are now enabled in these larger groups.”If you think 50 people sounds like horribly large number of video-call participants, you probably don’t work for a big corporation. Competitor Zoom, which has rapidly gained on Microsoft for videoconferencing software and services, can already conference 100 people — 500 with an extra-cost add-on.

With replacements and resignation Walker consolidates control of gas line project

first_imgDan Fauske’s chair was vacant at the Saturday morning meeting of the AGDC board. Photo: Rachel Waldholz/APRNOne doesn’t usually associate “state gas line corporation” and “drama” — but this weekend, the state-owned Alaska Gasline Development Corporation was the source of all kinds of drama.Download Audio:The corporation, known as AGDC, is responsible for the state’s share of the massive Alaska LNG project to bring natural gas from the North Slope. And in the space of 24 hours starting Friday, Gov. Bill Walker removed two board members — including the chairman — and the president resigned.With these changes, Walker has consolidated control over an agency — and a gas line project — originally created by his predecessor, Sean Parnell.The sun wasn’t even up on Saturday morning and already the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation was making news. When board members gathered for their early morning meeting, there were two new nameplates at the table.And then, within minutes of the meeting being called to order, board member Hugh Short said he had an addition for the agenda: discussing the resignation of AGDC president Dan Fauske.Fauske had led the organization since its founding in 2010 as a unit within the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, which he oversaw for the better part of two decades. His resignation letter didn’t give a reason for his departure. But it was clear to everyone in the room why he left.Here’s Governor Bill Walker, speaking at a press conference Saturday afternoon.Walker: I let them know that I think we need to have a person there with different qualifications. There’s no question about that. Did I give a directive that they must do that? No, I don’t give directives, but they certainly knew my belief.Walker couldn’t hire or fire Fauske directly. But he made it clear he wanted new leadership: someone with more natural gas experience — and someone who fully supports his approach.“We need to bring some alignment to this project, internally,” Walker said. “We have agencies sometimes at cross-purposes, and we need to make sure that that’s not the case.”Walker was a fierce critic of AGDC and the gas line project during his campaign last fall, arguing it wasn’t transparent enough, and handed too much power to the state’s partners, ExxonMobil, BP and ConocoPhillips.In January, just after taking office, he removed three board members. With the recent changes, he has now replaced six of seven board members in the last year.There are several other state agencies involved in the gas line project – the Departments of Natural Resources, Revenue and Law. Each of their heads are appointed by the governor. With Fauske’s resignation, almost no one in the gas line leadership is from the previous administration.Republican lawmakers expressed unease about the changes.“I think it creates instability in the project,” said State Sen. Anna MacKinnon (R-Eagle River). “And this administration has continued to insert instability into the project.”MacKinnon said it’s the governor’s prerogative to change board members, but this kind of reshuffle worries her. The governor also recently said he was looking for a different role for the state’s lead negotiator, Rigdon Boykin. MacKinnon said between that change and Fauske’s ouster, she isn’t sure who to go to on the gas line.“I have no idea who’s leading this project,” she said. “Absolutely not.”“Think what your reaction would be if this went on with the Permanent Fund corporation,” said oil and gas consultant Brad Keithley. He pointed out that these changes come as the state is trying to negotiate key agreements with the oil companies.“Firing the president, and going out and having a search for a new president, at a time when we should be keeping on track to get those contracts done…” Keithley said. “I think the governor has the right to appoint the people he has trust in, but it’s the timing in the process that’s troublesome to me.”The board meeting on Saturday was originally called for two very different reasons. Board members were scheduled to take a final vote to buy out TransCanada. That passed unanimously. But a second vote was postponed. That was to authorize work on the Alaska LNG project for another year. All four partners must vote yes by Dec. 4 for the project to move forward.Until the recent shake-up, the state’s vote was a foregone conclusion. But at the press conference Saturday, Walker said the state isn’t yet ready to cast that yes vote. First, he says, he wants assurances from the state’s partners that if any company pulls out, it won’t then withhold gas it controls from the project.“By approving the work plan and budget today, there’s no incentive for us to receive those assurances or not,” Walker said. “We do have leverage. Leverage is not a bad thing.”The board is scheduled to vote on whether to continue the project Dec. 3.last_img read more
