West Indies all-rouncer Andre Russell, who was introduced into the attack as early as the sixth over, showed his teammates the way forward against Pakistan bowlers by bowling fast and short.Bouncers troubled Pakistan throughout the innings and none of them, including senior batsmen Sarfaraz Ahmed and Mohammad Hafeez found answers to the barrage of short balls that came their way.Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman scored 22 each but none of the others managed to impress. Pakistan managed to past the 100-run mark, thanks to tail-ender Wahab Riaz’s late blitz (11-ball 18 that included 2 sixes).Young and raw pace bowler Oshane Thomas was the star of West Indies bowling as he picked up 4 wickets in just 5.4 overs.

No Toll on Upgraded Road to St. Thomas and Portland

first_img Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has emphasised that motorists will not be charged a toll to use the 110-kilometre roadway between Harbour View, Kingston, and Port Antonio, Portland, that is slated for rehabilitation under the Southern Coastal Highway Improvement Project (SCHIP).“Absolutely not. There is no plan whatsoever for a toll road here…it was never contemplated. This is the only route into this part of the island, and you can only put a toll road where there is an alternative route,” he pointed out.The Prime Minister was responding to questions from residents during the second ‘HOPE for Jamaica’ town hall meeting at the old Goodyear factory complex in Morant Bay, St. Thomas, on July 13, where details of the US$384 million project were outlined.The work, to be carried out by China Harbour Engineering Company Limited (CHEC), will entail realignment and widening of the roadway to four lanes, and rehabilitation of the road from Morant Bay to Cedar Valley.Loan funding has been provided by the China EXIM Bank, and work is expected to get underway in early 2018.Meanwhile, Mr. Holness advised that the Port Authority of Jamaica plans to upgrade the Bowden wharf in St. Thomas to a bulk port to facilitate the movement of aggregates, such as stone, which are used in construction and other activities.This, he said, is aimed at ensuring the road’s longevity by preserving it as best as possible against elements that could potentially damage the surface.The Prime Minister anticipates that the proposed facility could be leveraged and would be pivotal in developing a potential limestone industry in St. Thomas, which has significant reserves of this mineral.“St. Thomas can become a major player in the mining industry (by providing) limestone and other aggregate materials, as part of the general development of the parish.But when we build the road, we have to provide a multimodal transport system to offer an alternative to the haulage of aggregates on the road. So, Bowden is going to be developed to move those materials, so as to ease the pressure on the road,” Mr. Holness said. “Absolutely not. There is no plan whatsoever for a toll road here…it was never contemplated.

DP World Brisbane Orders Two Kalmar Auto Stacking Cranes

first_imgzoom Dubai-based port operator DP World has ordered two new Kalmar automatic stacking cranes (ASCs) for its semi-automated terminal in Brisbane, Australia.The cranes will join a fleet of 14 Kalmar ASCs at Fisherman Islands Terminal, bringing the number of modules servicing container trade to eight and increasing capacity by 14 percent to 720,000 TEUs. The new ASCs will be delivered fully erected in 2016 and they are expected to be commissioned in January 2017.“The acquisition of the two new ASCs is expected to further improve our quayside productivity, while enabling a more efficient transfer of containers from our road side operation,” Glenn Wayne, General Manager Operations, DP World Brisbane, said.”It will also result in a 14 percent increase in yard stacking capacity, while providing an additional five truck lanes which will further reduce truck turn times across all shifts.”Since DP World Australia launched its semi-automated terminal with seven operating modules in May 2014, key performance metrics including truck turnaround time and quay crane productivity have improved significantly.End-to-end efficiency is achieved in the terminal through a combination of Kalmar automated stacking cranes, shuttle carriers and automated truck handling, all integrated to operate within Kalmar terminal logistic system and Navis terminal operating system.last_img read more

Four dead in rebel attack on Thai army base

first_imgPattani(Thailand): Four people were killed in a late-night attack by suspected Muslim insurgents on a military outpost in Thailand’s violence-wracked south, authorities said Wednesday. The attack comes as anger snowballs over the case of a Muslim rebel suspect who was left in a critical condition after spending several hours in a notorious army interrogation unit. The 15-year conflict in the Malay-Muslim majority ‘Deep South’ has left over 7,000 people dead, but garners little global attention. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US Rebels seeking autonomy for the culturally distinct ‘Deep South’ have been fighting the Buddhist-majority Thai state, which colonised the area over a century ago. Late on Tuesday militants struck the remote base in Pattani province, throwing grenades and laying down nearly an hour of automatic fire, an army spokesman told AFP. “Four people were killed including an army sergeant-major, two defence volunteers and a villager,” said Colonel Thanawee Suwannarat. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls The rebels stole five machine guns, burnt tyres and scattered spikes on the road as they fled to hamper any chase, he added. Confirming the death toll, a Pattani police officer said two other people were in hospital in a critical condition, in one of the deadliest single incidents to hit the region in months. The attack comes four days after rebel suspect Abdulloh Esormusor was left unconscious after being arrested under martial law and taken to a notorious military camp in Pattani. Thailand’s army is investigating how the 34-year-old came to be hospitalised with brain swelling hours after arriving at the Inkayuth camp. An army statement said the camp doctor recorded the suspect arriving in good health, but said he was later found unconscious after being held in the “interrogation centre”. Inkayuth is the Thai army’s biggest detention centre in the south, where rebel suspects are taken for questioning and held under the emergency laws governing the conflict-scarred region. The army has vowed to punish anyone found guilty of abuse. But critics say impunity reigns in the security straitjacket of the south — no military personnel have ever been successfully prosecuted for abuses over the conflict. Sunai Phasuk of Human Rights Watch speculated Tuesday’s attack “was in retaliation” for the treatment of Abdulloh. An umbrella group representing some of the shadowy rebel groups said they suspected “foul play” in Abdulloh’s case and called for an international probe. Insurgents operating in small, secretive village-level cells carry out near-daily bomb attacks and shootings in the south — including the murder of Buddhist civilians and Muslims perceived to be collaborating with the state. Attacks are often a swift and targeted kickback against arrests or deaths of suspected rebels or Muslim civilians.last_img read more

Moroccos Letitcluck Hashtag Calls for Boycott of Chicken

Rabat- In Morocco, whole unplucked chickens usually cost no more than MAD 16 per kilo in souks or from chicken vendors. Sometimes prices will drop to MAD 11 or MAD 10 per kilogram. Cleaned whole chickens usually cost MAD 28 to MAD 30 per kilogram in both souks and supermarkets.Lately, chicken prices at regular souks and chicken vendors reached MAD 25 per kilogram, prompting Moroccans to launch the “Let_it_cluck” hashtag to express discontent with the new prices which many considered “over the top.” Moroccans have been wondering why chicken prices have risen.According to a communique by Morocco’s Interprofessional Poultry Federation (FISA), the truck drivers’ strike that started across the country in October crippled transportation, affecting the poultry sector. Many trucks transporting poultry to souks throughout Morocco were unable to operate because of strikers stopping the trucks and threatening to use violence if necessary. Often, the poultry transports were forced to return to villages and poultry farms without transporting the goods.Read Also: Morocco, Canada to Improve Bilateral Cooperation on AeronauticsFISA had already foreseen and warned of “a significant rise in prices” in October following the transportation problems. The strike also led to an increase in vegetables, fruits, and fish prices.The truck drivers led strikes against the Ministry of Equipment, Transport, Logistics, and Water’s decision to require drivers take training costing MAD 4,000- 8,000, which they considered too expensive.Social media activism and boycott campaignsFollowing the major boycott against high prices which sprouted online on April 20 targeting three leading companies in Morocco—Sidi Ali (mineral water), Centrale Danone (dairy products), and Afriquia (gasoline)—Moroccans entered a new era of activism.The boycott caused major economic losses for the targeted companies in its early days. Other less resonant calls for boycott came in summer against the high prices of fish. read more

Migiro calls for more rights for women in HIVAIDS caregiving

This inequality “is unjust and a serious form of discrimination, even a form of violence” against women, she said in remarks in New York at the opening of the 53rd session of the Commission on the Status of Women.Women are restricted in employment, education and public life, while men are held back from taking part in their families’ lives, she said. “Families, communities and society as a whole suffer the consequences.”The HIV and AIDS pandemic has highlighted the need for a comprehensive approach, involving all members of society, to address this imbalance, Ms. Migiro emphasized.She noted several steps that must be taken, including recognizing unpaid work and caregiving at the home and community level, as well as easing the burden of domestic and care responsibilities.Further, the Deputy Secretary-General called for legislation and policies such as closing the pay gap between men and women and stepping up flexible work arrangements.“Ensuring that caregivers have the means to do their work effectively has a cost that society must be ready to meet,” she underscored. “We must provide adequate resources to empower women and girls who are dedicating their time to looking after people living with HIV.”Eliminating inequalities must be a priority, in spite of the challenges posed by the current global and economic crises that are thwarting progress in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), eight internationally agreed targets, including the eradication of poverty and gender inequality, with a 2015 deadline. This session of the CSW will discuss the issue of unequal sharing of responsibilities between men and women in HIV/AIDS caregiving contexts through high-level roundtables and expert panels. UN agencies, permanent missions to the world body and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) will host numerous parallel events during the two-week session.In a related development, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the cosmetics company L’Oréal announced the names of the 15 promising young women post-doctoral researchers selected for fellowships as part of their efforts to foster global scientific cooperation.The two-year fellowships will allow these scientists to pursue research outside their home countries.In addition, the L’Oréal-UNESCO Awards For Women in Science – which seek to change the face of science and support the advancement of women in the scientific field – recognized five outstanding women researchers from five continents in recognition of their work in physical sciences. Nominated by a network of almost 1,000 scientists worldwide, this year’s laureates were selected by an international jury comprising 17 leading scientists, presided over by Ahmed Zewail, winner of the 1999 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.Since its launch in 1998, more than 500 women researchers around the world have benefited from the L’Oréal and UNESCO’s joint “Women in Science” programme. Nearly 140 international and over 400 national fellowships have been awarded, while 57 women scientists have received L’Oréal-UNESCO Awards so far. 2 March 2009Too many women shoulder the heaviest burden in caring for people living with HIV and AIDS, Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro said today, calling for greater balance in responsibilities between men and women. read more

Inside One Of The Best Defensive Matchups In Super Bowl History

During the 2015 regular season, the Broncos and Panthers allowed the NFL’s fewest and second-fewest yards per play, respectively, and finished 1-2 defensively in Football Outsiders’ defense-adjusted value over average (DVOA) ratings. It’s only the eighth time the top two DVOA defenses1Using estimated ratings for seasons prior to 1989. have met in a Super Bowl, and the average defensive index of the teams involved ranks third all-time, trailing only Super Bowls XIV and IV. Everyone is obsessing over the study in contrasts at quarterback — Cam Newton vs. Peyton Manning — but it’s the two defenses that should be taking center stage in the lead-up to Sunday, because by just about any measure, this is one of the best defensive matchups in Super Bowl history. BroncosRunning the ball against the Broncos’ defense is like running into a brick wall erected around another, thicker brick wall. It had the league’s fourth-best defensive DVOA against rushing plays during the regular season and was particularly fearsome up the middle, allowing the league’s fourth-fewest expected points per rush between the tackles. According to ProFootballFocus.com’s player grades, defensive end Derek Wolfe was the eighth-best interior run defender in the NFL; Danny Trevathan and Brandon Marshall also ranked among the top 11 run defenders at linebacker, with Von Miller ranking ninth against the run among edge rushers. If the Broncos have a weakness against the run, it’s in short-yardage situations — they allowed the league’s second-highest power success rate2Defined as the percentage of runs that achieved a first down or touchdown on third or fourth down with 2 yards or less to go, or on first- or second-and-goal from the 2-yard line or closer. — but they offset that with one of the league’s highest rates of stuffing runners behind the line of scrimmage, and they almost never allowed long runs. Only 7.4 percent of carries against the Broncos went for more than 10 yards, the third-lowest rate in the league.And Denver’s ability to stop the run is by far the weaker aspect of this defense. According to DVOA,3Again, indexed relative to the league’s distribution of pass defenses. the 2015 Broncos’ pass D ranks as the 11th-best of the Super Bowl era after blowing away the competition this season. The Panthers’ DVOA against the pass ranked second in the league but was about two-thirds of a standard deviation worse than Denver’s. 2012Chicago140130136 What makes the Broncos so great at defending the pass? For one thing, they led the league in adjusted sack rate, with coordinator Wade Phillips dialing up five or more pass-rushers on 42 percent of opposing pass plays, fourth-most in football. Those plays are statistically graded as blitzes, but in a Denver 3-4 alignment featuring some of the game’s top pass-rushing linebackers, the lines between a blitz and a D-line that simply creates pressure on its own start to blur. According to PFF, Miller was the top pass-rushing edge defender in the game, and his partner on the opposite side, DeMarcus Ware, ranked sixth. Meanwhile, Wolfe and Malik Jackson also finished among the top 11 pass-rushing interior linemen. And when the Broncos do need to blitz from unusual places, safety T.J. Ward can create havoc; he tied for sixth among DBs with a pair of sacks this season.But the front four is only part of the equation — a blitz-heavy scheme falls apart quickly without the ability to cover receivers. This Denver D doesn’t necessarily rely on its secondary as ball hawks; Aqib Talib’s modest total of three interceptions led the roster, and the team’s interception rate was merely average. Instead, all of the Broncos’ primary defensive backs (Talib, Ward, Chris Harris Jr., Darian Stewart and Bradley Roby) and linebackers (Trevathan and Marshall) ranked among the upper quartile at their positions in PFF’s coverage grades, sticking to receivers so effectively that only St. Louis allowed fewer air yards per completion. (“Grading” players is often a fool’s errand, since you can never be sure about coverages and assignments, but when pretty much the entire secondary grades out in the upper crust, those problems are minimized.) And no team allowed fewer overall passing yards per attempt or yards per completion than the Broncos did.PanthersFor all the lofty achievement and outright dominance by the Denver squad, the Panthers’ defense might actually have the edge in star power: Not only will it have arguably the best player on the field Sunday in LB Luke Kuechly, but Carolina’s D also outearned Denver’s in first-team All-Pro selections (3 to 1) and tied it for Pro Bowl nods (4 apiece).It’s indicative of the way these defenses stack up: Carolina’s top defensive players — Kuechly, CB Josh Norman, LB Thomas Davis (playing Sunday with “a plate and probably around 11 or 12 screws” in his arm, which he broke during the NFC championship), DT Kawann Short — can hold their own with anybody on Denver’s roster. But the lesser Panthers defenders aren’t quite as good, which makes Carolina’s statistical profile sort of “Broncos Lite.” Their strengths are similar, but the Panthers are slightly inferior to Denver whether they’re defending the pass or the run.Stylistically, however, the Panthers do operate differently in some important ways. At the most elemental level, they run a 4-3 scheme that relies less on creative blitz packages and pressure from the edges, instead using Short to generate a pass rush from the middle of the defense, and fellow DT Star Lotulelei to occupy blockers and eat up space. The end result was fewer sacks and less pressure overall, but that only makes Carolina’s performance in coverage even more impressive. Despite giving opposing passers the league’s sixth-most seconds in the pocket per drop-back, the Panthers allowed the 11th-fewest air yards per attempt and seventh-lowest completion percentage.It all starts with Norman, who has few peers when it comes to blanketing receivers. Alongside him, the Carolina secondary is littered with such solid cover DBs as Kurt Coleman, Roman Harper, Cortland Finnegan and Tre Boston, all of whom PFF rated among the top half of their respective positions in terms of pass coverage. This depth proved important because Carolina used five or more defensive backs on 463 pass plays this season (26 percent more than the NFL average), more than any other team despite a banged-up secondary that suffered a number of key losses.Speaking of which: The only glaring hole in the DB corps might be Robert McClain, whom PFF rated as one of the worst cover corners in football since signing with Carolina at midseason after a rash of injuries befell the team. But coverage ratings for individual players often don’t tell the whole story, and the rest of Carolina’s roster rates well in pass coverage — Kuechly was graded by PFF as the game’s best cover LB. The all-around cover skills of Carolina’s entire D helped them yield the league’s second-lowest rates of yards per attempt and yards after the catch.Against the rush, Carolina profiled a lot like Denver: It was poor at stopping runners in power situations (worst in the league, in fact), but it also stuffed a lot of runs behind the line of scrimmage. The biggest difference is that, unlike the Broncos, the Panthers did yield some long runs; they ranked 15th at preventing what Football Outsiders calls “open field” yards — i.e., rushing gains starting more than 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage — per carry (Denver ranked second). That’s one reason why this is a good run defense but not a great one.All told, this is the 15th-most evenly matched defensive matchup in Super Bowl history according to DVOA. And the quality of offensive competition each defense will face ought to help level the playing field even more. Denver’s historically great D is facing a very good Carolina offense led by the suddenly amazing Newton at QB; Carolina’s great-but-not-historically-so defense is facing one of the worst offenses to take the field in a Super Bowl — particularly when it comes to passing.The Super Bowl is all about pomp and spectacle, razzle and dazzle, offensive fireworks and star quarterbacks booking FastPass times at the tea cups. Sometimes that leaves little room for an appreciation of subtler things, like defense. But in this case, all eyes should be on that rougher side of the football — it will be a long time before you see another defensive clash of this caliber on Super Bowl Sunday.Check out our live coverage of Super Bowl 50. 2004Buffalo135129135 Source: Football Outsiders, FootballPerspective 2008Pittsburgh133125133 DEFENSIVE DVOA INDEX 1974Pittsburgh139130138 1982Miami12785143 1980Washington11886132 1998Miami133114137 2002Tampa Bay146114148 YEARTEAMOVERALLVS.

In some cases the cats even have problems picking up food because of their flattened ‘grumpy’ faces.A recent study by researchers at the University of Edinburgh concluded that flatter-faced cats were more likely to have breathing problems and that the breathing difficulties were also associated with increased tear staining and a more sedentary lifestyle. Reality TV star Kim Kardashian holding her pet flat faced cat, before finding out she is apparently allergic to cats.center_img Vets have warned the celebrity craze for French bulldogs is helping fuel dangerous overbreeding, resulting in agonising deformities and birth defects, Britain’s leading veterinary experts warn.Rather than being “cute and wrinkly”, experts claim that intensively bred “Frenchies” struggle to breathe due to their exaggerated features – with even short bouts of exercise triggering serious respiratory problems.In Switzerland a prosecution under the Animal Protection Act brought against two people who bred extreme bracycephalic cats led to a strengthening of  animal protection law.New regulations prevent intentional breeding which produces specific traits that compromise the health and wellbeing of an animal. Claire Bessant, chief executive of International Cat Care, said: “It is very depressing to see the life that has been deliberately dealt to some breeds of cats because of a human desire to develop a certain look.“I urge cat lovers to speak out and help others to understand that this is not something we should be doing to cats and not something we should be tolerating.”She added: “One of the best and most beautifully naturally designed animals – the cat – would not normally have any of these problems; we have created them through selective breeding. We should not be encouraging people to breed these cats by calling them ‘cute’, by being amused at their facial characteristics, or by the fact that they snore. We should never deliberately breed cats for any feature or characteristic that impairs their welfare.”The calls follow similar fears over flat faced dogs The problems associated with flat faced or  brachycephalic cats have become more common as the breeds have grown in popularity.Their prominent eyes and downturned mouth – making them look as if they are smiling or scowling – have made flat faced breeds the cat of choice.Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Georgia May Jagger are among the celebrities who have been photographed carrying one.Figures from the pet microchipping database Pet Log show that flat-faced British shorthair and Persian cats are among the top ten most popular breeds in the UK, with more than 77,000 registered between them.

Amnesty launches case challenging standards watchdogs order that it return €137000

first_img Image: Leah Farrell/RollingNews.ie Monday 12 Feb 2018, 4:47 PM Feb 12th 2018, 4:47 PM Amnesty launches case challenging standards watchdog’s order that it return €137,000 The money was donated to the group in order to fund activities around the Eighth Amendment. No Comments Share26 Tweet Email1 By Aodhan O Faolain A demonstration in the Amnesty “My Body My Rights” campaign. Image: Leah Farrell/RollingNews.iecenter_img 7,832 Views Short URL AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL HAS brought a High Court challenge against Standards in Public Office Commission’s (SIPO) order that it return a Swiss-based foundation’s donation of €137,000 for a campaign to increase support for a referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution. The donation was made in August 2015 by the Open Society Foundations (OSF), a body founded by businessman George Soros, for the Irish-based strand of Amnesty’s international “My Body, My Rights” campaign.The objectives of the campaign included increasing support among politicians for the holding of a referendum on the Eighth Amendment and provide a human rights compliant abortion framework. The campaign included lobbying politicians and organising events and seminars for politicians before the 2016 General Election aimed at having the Eighth Amendment repealed. Last November, SIPO directed Amnesty to return the monies after finding the donation was prohibited under Section 23 A2 of the 1997 Electoral Act after deeming it to be a donation for political purposes. Amnesty denies the funds were used for political purposes and says SIPO’s decision is flawed, and should be set aside.As a result Amnesty International Irish Section CLG has brought proceedings against both SIPO, Ireland and the Attorney General where it seeks to quash SIPO’s decision. It also seeks several declarations including that SIPO has acted in error of law, in excess of its jurisdiction, misdirected itself as to the interpretation of Electoral, has failed to give adequate reasons for its decision and has acted irrationally and unreasonably. It further seeks declarations that it should not have to repay the monies, that SIPO has breached both Articles 40. 3 and 43 of the Irish Constitution, the European Convention on Human Rights and EU law.ComplexBrian Murray SC, instructed by Daragh O’Donovan of Orpen Franks Solicitors, for Amnesty said the challenge raises many complex legal issues concerning the interpretation of the Electoral Act. “Amnesty and other NGOs are extremely concerned about the implications of the decision,” counsel said. Counsel said the purpose of the donation was to fund Amnesty’s 2016 campaign whose purpose included to increase public support for repealing the Eighth Amendment, collaborate with other groups working on access to safe and legal abortion.No referendum on the Eighth was planned or had been called when the donation was made, counsel said. Counsel said in 2016 media reports on leaked documents from OSF suggested that the funding was part of a strategy to force the repeal of the Eighth Amendment. SIPO then wrote to Amnesty referring to obligations under the Electoral Act. Counsel said Amnesty told SIPO the donation was not for political purposes.However the Commission said received information and confirmation from the foreign donor that the monies were for explicitly political purposes.OSF has disputed that it provided written confirmation that the donation was for political purposes, and said that SIPO seemed to be basing it decision on an internal document for discussion that was made public after OSF was hacked by Russians, counsel said. Amnesty fears the matter could be referred to the gardaí, leading to a possible criminal prosecution, if if does not return the monies. It also fears reputational damage and financial hardship as Amnesty does not have any significant reserves. The return of the monies would have to come out of its current budget for 2018, counsel added. Permission to bring the challenge was granted, on an ex-parte basis, by Mr Justice Seamus Noonan. The judge made the matter returnable to a date in April.

Lockheed Martin Built Powerful Laser for US Army

first_img Lockheed Martin has built a 60 kW-class beam-combined fiber laser for the US Army.The laser, which recently broke a world record by producing a single beam of 58 kW, is being shipped to the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command in Huntsville, Ala.“Delivery of this laser represents an important milestone along the path to fielding a practical laser weapon system,” Paula Hartley, vice president of Mission Systems & Training at Lockheed Martin, said in a statement.Using fiber optics (transparent solids—typically glass—that transmit light signals), the machine compiles individual lasers to generate a single, intense beam.The scalable technology, based on a design developed under the Department of Defense’s Robust Electric Laser Initiative Program, allows the device to be made more powerful by simply adding additional fiber laser subunits.“The inherent scalability of this beam-combined laser system has allowed us to build the first 60 kW-class fiber laser for the US Army,” Robert Afzal, senior fellow for Laser and Sensor Systems at Lockheed said. “We have shown that a powerful directed energy laser is now sufficiently light-weight, low-volume, and reliable enough to be deployed on tactical vehicles for defensive applications on land, at sea and in the air.”Built to complement traditional kinetic weapons—i.e. bombs—these lasers are aimed at protecting against swarms of drones or high volumes of rockets and mortars.Last week, Gen. David Perkins revealed that a US ally took down an adversary’s off-the-shelf quad-copter with a Patriot missile.The skirmish, which ultimately cost the country millions and the attacker only a few hundred dollars, makes a case for laser lovers. Proponents of the tech, according to the Washington Post, suggest it would be cheaper and more efficient than munition systems.The proof is in the pudding: In 2015, Lockheed used a 30 kW fiber laser weapon, known as ATHENA, to disable a truck from a mile away. Just imagine what 60 kW could do.According to the company, this machine is capable of translating more than 43 percent of its electricity directly into the beam it emits.

Army investigating fatal shooting of soldier during livefire fieldtraining exercise

first_imgSoldiers with the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne) practice warfighting on the Donnelly Training Area last month. (Photo courtesy of the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team)Army investigators have begun looking into the circumstances surrounding last weekend’s death of a soldier from Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson during a field-training exercise on a range near Fort Greely. But, investigators aren’t saying much about the case. U.S. Army Alaska spokesman John Pennell says an investigation into the death of a 20-year-old infantryman during a training exercise near Fort Greely is well under way.“There are multiple levels of investigation that are ongoing,” he said, “including investigations by U.S. Army Alaska, by the Army Criminal Investigation Division and also by the Army Safety Center.”Spc. Nicholas DiMona died early Saturday morning after being shot while his unit was maneuvering during a live-fire exercise at the Donnelly Training Area, Pennell said.“The soldiers were attacking toward an objective … so the soldiers were maneuvering as they were firing,” Pennell said.Visibility was limited when DiMona sustained the fatal gunshot.“It was early in the morning on Saturday, so it was in the dark,” Pennell said.But he says the soldiers with the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne) out of JBER were acquainted with the training area and the scenario.“The unit had been through numerous rehearsals, including daytime and nighttime drills with blank ammunition and also with live ammunition,” Pennell said.But that’s about all Pennell would say Wednesday about the incident, citing the ongoing investigation. He declined to say where in the Donnelly Training Area the exercise was being conducted and what type of weapon killed DiMona. But he noted that several types of firearms were being used. And he says all personnel quickly responded after the soldier was hit.“Once the incident happened, all training immediately stopped,” Pennell said, “and the unit focus was then obviously on providing emergency medical care for the soldier until we could get him evacuated to Fairbanks Memorial (Hospital).”Pennell says Army personnel flew DiMona to Fairbanks in a helicopter that’s kept on stand-by during training exercises. But emergency personnel at the hospital declared DiMona dead. Pennell says the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team soldiers have since been working with investigators sort out what happened. He declined to estimate when they’ll wrap up their work.“It’ll take as long as it takes for us to figure out what happened, why it happened and how we can prevent it from happening in the future,” Pennell said.Pennell says combat is inherently dangerous, and so is realistically training for it. But he says the Army does all it can to make those exercises as safe as possible.last_img read more

BSNL Axes One Lakh Jobs to Recover Profits Offers Voluntary Retirement

first_imgState-owned telecommunication company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) is reportedly planning to lay off one lakh employees to cut down costs.According to Press Trust of India, BSNL is expecting to let go its employees by offering voluntary retirement. Besides the financial constraints of the company, over staffing and lack of skilled employees also forced the company to make the decision.”Around 1 lakh people in BSNL are in excess of the requirement and the company wants these people to take voluntary retirement,” said a top official of the company.BSNL believes that by bringing down the number of employees it will recover a major share of its profit which is currently paid as salaries to the employees. It is said that 48 percent of the company’s revenue went as salaries.”If these people opt for VRS, the salary burden of the company will come down to 10-15 per cent, which is manageable,” official said adding that “Over-staffing is one part which gets compounded by the fact that age is skewed. The average age is about 50 years. These people don’t have the skills set that are required for a service provider.”BSNL was under constant pressure since 2004-05 when the revenue of the company started showing a steep decline. Its profit came down to ₹6,384 crore during the 2010-11 period from ₹10,183 crore due to the salary burden and funding for the 3G and BWA spectrum auction.The company has also drafted a blue print to tap revenue of ₹8,000 crore through monetisation of its real estate. This includes “monetising of towers assets, utilisation of its factories for revenue generation, providing broadband connectivity to schools and leasing out its CDMA network,” PTI reported.last_img read more

Sadhvi Pragya issues apology after calling 2611 martyr Hemant Karkares death as

first_imgTwo days after Sadhvi Pragya ruffled many feathers for calling 26/11 martyr Hemant Karkare’s death as karma and that she cursed him, she issued an apology on Friday (April 19) night and added that she will withdraw her statement.Saying that she felt her enemies were benefitting from her comments, Sadhvi Pragya told reporters, “I felt that the enemies of the country were being benefited from it, therefore I take back my statement and apologise for it, it was my personal pain.”She then said, “He (Hemant Karkare) died from the bullets of terrorists from the enemy country, he is certainly a martyr,”On Thursday, Pragya was an accused in the 2008 Malegaon Blast Case, had accused Hemant Karkare of torturing her when she was jailed. Karkare was killed during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008.She said, “The investigation team called Hemant Karkare and said if you do not have evidence, let her go. He said, I will do anything to get evidence against her. I won’t let her go. This was his hatred (kuteelta). He was anti-national. He was dharam virudh (anti-religion). You won’t believe, but I said, ‘tera sarvanashhoga’. Just after ‘sawa’ month, terrorists killed him.”Pragya’s comments got the entire country in an uproar who called out the sanyasin for her callous remarks and said that Karkare was nothing but a martyr who died fighting for his country.Ashok Chakra awardee late Sri Hemant Karkare, IPS made the supreme sacrifice fighting terrorists. Those of us in uniform condemn the insulting statement made by a candidate and demand that sacrifices of all our martyrs be respected,” the IPS Association tweeted on Friday as a reply to Sadhvi’s comments.Sadhvi Pragya was fielded by the Bharatiya Janata Party in April to contest in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh. She will be facing Congress’ Digvijaya Singh on May 12. She was also a prime accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case. While the investigation showed that the bomb was kept in her bike. However, she was let off the hook by the National Investigation Agency and she is currently out on bail.last_img read more
