Donkey hall ticket won’t have any impact on credibility of recruiting agency, says J&K Minister

first_imgThe Jammu and Kashmir government on April 28 played down the reported issuance of an “admit card” (hall ticket) by the Services Selection Board to a “donkey”, saying it would have no impact on the credibility of the recruiting agency.A prankster reportedly got an admit card issued by the SSB in the name of “Kachur Khar” (brown donkey) to write the examination for recruitment of naib tehsildars, scheduled for April 29.“I don’t think it (reported issuance of an admit card to a donkey) is going to dent the image of the SSB. It is a technology-driven era and the cards are computer generated,” State Education Minister Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari told reporters in Jammu.Though the admit card was deleted by the board from its system soon after it went viral, social media users had a field day over the apparent lapse by the authorities. A photograph of the admit card is being widely circulated on Twitter and Facebook. The admit card has a donkey’s photograph on it.In 2015, the Board of Professional Entrance Examinations in the State had issued an admit card to a “cow” to write an examination.last_img read more

USCG Keeps an Eye on Grounded Bulker for Pollution

first_imgzoom A Panamanian-flagged bulk carrier Sparna, fully-loaded with grain, is under observation for pollution after it ran aground in the Columbia River on March 21, according to the US Coast Guard.The 2006-built Sparna is heavily loaded with 218,380 gallons of high sulfur fuel and 39,380 gallons of marine diesel.“The positive news so far is that responders have not observed any oil in the water,” said Capt. Dan Travers, Coast Guard Captain of the Port for the Columbia River.The 623-foot bulker grounded in a narrow part of the river near Cathlamet, Washington, while a river pilot was still onboard.Sparna sustained damages below the waterline, but the authorities decided that it will maintain position and be repaired at the site.Two tugs, the PJ Brix and Pacific Escort, were launched to help stabilize the vessel as it listed to its port side after taking on water in void spaces.There are no reports of injuries due to the grounding, and the authorities launched an investigation into the cause of the incident.According to USCG, the navigable channel of the river has not been closed.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

HMM CEO 2020 Will Be a Year of Quantum Leap for Us

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: PxHere under CCO license /Public Domain 2020 will be a year of quantum leap for the South Korean shipping company Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), the company’s CEO C. K. Yoo believes.  The leap would be led by the newly ordered 23,000 TEU containerships, Yoo pointed out, but also by considerable investment in IT, global network, education and improvement of customer service. In addition, HMM has managed to reduce its terminal handling charges by re-acquiring rights of the Hyundai Pusan New Port Terminal, thus maximizing profitability, Yoo explained.As World Maritime News reported earlier, HMM acquired 50 ownership in the Hyundai Pusan New-Port Terminal that was sold off in 2016 as part of the company’s restructuring.“Last year, we steadily made preparations for a new leap in the midst of difficult internal and external circumstances, including US sanctions on Iran, soaring oil prices, and global trade conflict, achieving a 150% increase in handling cargo volume from 3 million TEU in 2016 to 4.5 million TEU in 2018, thereby restoring trust of our customers,” he commented.“We have also launched the Asia Europe Express (AEX) service, which links Asia-Northern Europe, as a basis to prepare for the introduction of mega vessels in 2020. We have also introduced M/V HMM Promise and HMM Blessing, the first mega containerships in the world to be equipped with scrubbers, so that we are able to preemptively cope with changes in the competitive environment caused by new environmental regulations.”In order to prepare for the operation of the colossal vessels, including the five very large crude carriers (VLCCs), which will be deployed every two months from January this year, the company’s staff needs to prepare.To remind, the five 300,000 dwt VLCCs were ordered in 2017 from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) for a total of approximately USD 417 billion.According to Yoo, the preparation process would see reforming of HMM’s global organization as well as relocation and investment in human resources.Commenting on the growing uncertainty in the industry from environmental regulations, Yoo called on gathering wisdom and knowledge across the company to turn the challenge from the environmental regulation paradigm into an opportunity.last_img read more

International Volunteer Day

first_imgThe province is celebrating the dedication and commitment of Nova Scotia volunteers today, Dec. 5, International Volunteer Day. “Volunteers are an important part of this province’s past, present and future,” said Barry Barnet, Minister of Volunteerism. “There is great work being done by volunteers across our province, and it’s important that we take the time to recognize and celebrate it.” Nova Scotia, has 253,000 volunteers. Each year, these volunteers contribute $2 billion to the economic well-being of our province. “We all volunteer for different reasons, whether it is to help out a friend, meet new people, or to build our community,” said Mr. Barnet. “Volunteers give comfort, compassion, guidance and hope. They are tireless friends who believe in human dignity. They also know that to rise above adversity, to be the very best that we can be, we need each other.” Mr. Barnet was appointed Minister of Volunteerism by Premier Rodney MacDonald in May. Since that time, a partnership between government and Nova Scotia’s Canada Volunteerism Initiative has worked to develop a comprehensive action plan to support volunteerism in Nova Scotia. Action plan priorities include: addressing insurance issues; retaining and recruiting volunteers; and working with existing volunteers across the province to identify opportunities and gaps. The aim of supporting volunteers and their work, is to foster a culture of caring in this province. International Volunteer Day was adopted by United National General Assembly resolution in 1985. Since this date, the UN system, governments and international social agencies have joined volunteers around the world to celebrate International Volunteer Day on Dec. 5 For more information on International Volunteer Day, please visit the website at read more

CBI files chargesheet in IMA Ponzi scam

first_imgNew Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation has filed a chargesheet in the I Monetary Advisory Ponzi scheme case, against the chit fund company’s Managing Director Mansoor Khan and 14 others in a Bengaluru court, officials here said.The chargesheet was filed by the central probe agency on Saturday (September 7), after it registered a case against the Bengaluru-based company and 26 people including Khan, on August 30. The chargesheet has been filed against seven directors, five members, one auditor and four of IMA’s group companies. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The CBI had taken over the investigation in the case, pegged by the ED to be around Rs 4,000 crore, after the state government in Karnataka had decided to hand it over to the central probe agency, weeks after BS Yeddiyurappa’s BJP government came to power in the state at the end of July. The CBI had subsequently registered another FIR in connection with the Ponzi scheme case, where an executive engineer of the Bengaluru Development Authority was allegedly paid Rs 5 crore in bribe by directors of IMA, to influence the Principal Secretary of the Revenue Department so that the chit fund company could obtain a No Objection Certificate. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KOfficials said that the central agency has formed a 12-member Multi-Disciplinary Investigation Team, assisted by Chartered Accountants, forensic auditors, computer forensic experts and bankers to probe the case. The case had revealed political overtones as well, when a video of Khan alleging that Shivajinagar’s Congress MLA, Roshan Baig, had taken Rs 400 crore from him and was not returning it. The CBI’ FIR is based on a complaint first lodged by the Bengaluru City police, where the complainant alleged that more than Rs 1.3 crore of his investment was stuck with IMA and that Khan’s company also owed him more than Rs 3 crore in construction payments. The central agency’s FIR also acknowledges 15 more similar cases lodged by the Bengaluru Police and will investigate all of the cases together. The IMA chief, Mansoor Khan had fled the country days before the scam surfaced, after causing a stir amongst investors by releasing a video where he threatened to kill himself. At the time, more than 35,000 investors had filed complaints with the Bengaluru City Police, taking cognizance of which the ED registered a money-laundering case in the matter. After tracking Khan down in Dubai, the Karnataka SIT, which was initially probing the case, convinced him to return to India so he could join the investigation. But as soon as he landed in Delhi sometime in mid-July, he was detained by immigration authorities on account of an LOC against him, after which ED officials arrested him. Khan is currently in judicial custody.last_img read more

Sidewalk Toronto faces growing opposition calls to cancel project

TORONTO — Plans for a high tech Toronto community led by an Alphabet Inc.-backed entity should be scrapped, say politicians and prominent Canadian business and technology leaders.In the wake of a leaked report last week that revealed Sidewalk Labs’ interest in laying claim to developer fees and taxes usually routed to the city in exchange for funding Toronto’s waterfront transit, longtime critics of the project said it is time to revisit whether the project should continue to move forward.The project — a partnership with Waterfront Toronto that hopes to bring affordable housing, heated sidewalks, raincoats for buildings and autonomous vehicle infrastructure to 12 acres of the city’s waterfront known as Quayside —  has been mired in controversy since Sidewalk won a contract in 2017.In addition to funding a light rail transit line, the latest round of ideas floated by Sidewalk includes plans to provide infrastructure to a waterfront area bigger than, but surrounding, Quayside.City councillor Gord Perks, who represents the west-end Parkdale-High Park neighbourhood, has long fretted about Sidewalk’s data privacy policies, lack of transparency and desires around solid waste and transportation, but considered Thursday’s revelations around it wanting to fund a light rail transit line a “confirmation of our worst fears.”“The three governments who are involved should halt the process with Google and go to the public and say we have an area of land as big as the downtown, what would you like to do?” he told The Canadian Press.“Based on that we should figure out what pieces need to be developed publicly and which pieces involve the private sector.”Perks was adamant that he would not support Sidewalk’s light rail transit plan and said “rather than wasting time chasing after a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow, we should get on and do what we know does work: build it with public dollars.”Despite the criticisms, Sidewalk spokesperson Keerthana Rang said in an email to The Canadian Press that the company is still “excited” about the project, which she said “will be up to residents, Waterfront Toronto and all three levels of government to decide if it should go forward.”“Unfortunately, there are some who have never been open to exploring what a partnership between Waterfront Toronto and Sidewalk Labs might make possible on the waterfront, and so this is not particularly surprising,” she said.Waterfront Toronto spokesperson Andrew Tumilty wrote in an email that his organization “values all points of views from the community and remains committed to a full evaluation of Sidewalk Labs’ proposal when it is received.”An Ontario government source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Canadian Press previously that the scope of Sidewalk’s ideas was “concerning” and said “As it is written, there is no way our government would sign off on that plan.”Among those who were calling for the project’s cancellation Monday was Bianca Wylie, the co-founder of the advocacy group Tech Reset Canada, who has long been advocating for the project to end.“It should absolutely be shut down, but the reason for that isn’t what was in the plan. It’s the process,” she said. “There has been inadequate transparency from the very beginning.”Despite Sidewalk hosting several meetings to collect public feedback, Wylie has long worried about the company being secretive with its plans — its transit ideas were only shared after slide decks containing the concepts were leaked to media — and is concerned about the breadth of topics Sidewalk has been lobbying all three levels of government on.The Canadian Press found at least 32 lobbyist registration records for the company at the City of Toronto, where Sidewalk staff as prominent as chief executive officer Dan Doctoroff have registered to lobby on everything from transportation to public health.Records show the company has registered at least 40 people to lobby the province and eight, including Doctoroff, to lobby the federal government on similar matters. Federal records show Sidewalk’s lobbyists have aimed their efforts at a broad swath of departments including the prime minister’s office and the treasury board.“Nobody asked for an omnibus proposal of putting a vendor in a place where they could influence all kinds of different things in a neighbourhood,” said Wylie. “There is no reason for anyone to have any trust in this project.”Developer Julie Di Lorenzo, who resigned from the Waterfront Toronto board over the project, also cast aspersions on the integrity of the project and its future.“They are trying again to act like a master developer of hundreds of acres of lands that belong to The City of Toronto and its residents. Its outrageous,” she told The Canadian Press.“Those monies belong to our democratically elected governments and property owners. Every time Sidewalk shows us a map, the land area they ‘need’ gets bigger.” read more

Extraordinary Visitors to Dublins Little Museum up 114 per cent

first_imgIRISH PEOPLE AND tourists are clearly very interested in the country’s past, as the 2013 visitor numbers for the Little Museum of Dublin show.While in 2012 a total 24,248 people passed through its doors, that jumped by 114 per cent to 51,783 in 2013.GobsmackedTrevor White of the museum told “We are slightly gobsmacked that the figures are that high. We had an extraordinary few months – December and November were just way way higher than we thought they’d be.”The three days between Christmas and New Year were some of its busiest last year. “It speaks to the interest that Dubliners have in their history,” said White.The museum is filled with items that members of the public donated themselves. “For many people, it’s a trip down memory lane,” said White, adding that they find many visitors have been recommended to go there by friends or family.“A lot of people might be in tears, moved by the experience,” he added, saying that running the museum is “a huge privilege”.White said that “the fact that the people in Dublin have taken ownership of this place in a way, that is gobsmacking”, and that there has been massive interest across a range of age groups.Its newest exhibition – a collection of photographs of Dublin, taken on vivid colour Kodachrome film by a tourist called Charles Cushman in 1961 – went on show today.“They are extraordinary photos that have never been exhibited here before,” said White.Also in 2014, to mark the millennium of the Battle of Clontarf the Little Museum is working with contemporary artist Fergal McCarthy.  “We have lots of exciting plans,” said White of the year ahead.The museum is housed in a building owned by its primary patron, Dublin City Council, and it recently achieved charity status. It opened in 2011 and White said that a huge amount of the footfall is due to word of mouth.ExhibitionsCurator Simon O’Connor said that their temporary exhibitions in particular have drawn in the crowds. “It’s a very difficult time for cultural institutions,” he pointed out. “A very important part for local visitors was that what we were doing was changing all the time.”One of the four temporary exhibitions – there is also one permanent exhibition – was of early U2 photographs, which proved to be incredibly popular; another was photos of Dublin street style, and a further exhibit was of photographs from during the 1913 Lockout.The focus at the Little Museum is social history, a look at “what’s going on behind the scenes for regular people” rather than solely the broader political narrative. “We want to be popular, not necessarily populist,” said O’Connor.“To create that emotional response and that personal response to what we’re doing. Our goal is to encourage an interest in the city and really be a place that fosters civic pride and civic awareness.”The Little Museum of Dublin is housed in a landmark Georgian building overlooking St Stephen’s Green. Admission costs €6 and the museum is open seven days a week.

Syndrome de Cushing symptômes traitement diagnostic de quoi sagitil

first_imgSyndrome de Cushing : symptômes, traitement, diagnostic, de quoi s’agit-il ?Le syndrome de Cushing se caractérise par un ensemble de signes et de symptômes dus à un excès de cortisol dans l’organisme. C’est une maladie rare qui touche environ 130 personnes par an en France. Définition : qu’est ce que le syndrome de Cushing ?Le syndrome de Cushing est dû à une production excessive de cortisol. On parle de syndrome de Cushing lorsqu’une personne présente une association de symptômes et de signes cliniques qui sont dus à un excès d’hormones à action glucocorticoïde.Assez rare, le syndrome de Cushing survient généralement entre 20 et 40 ans et touche plus souvent les femmes que les hommes. Origine du syndrome de CushingIl existe deux types d’hormones à action glucocorticoïde. L’une, qui se trouve naturellement dans notre organisme et qui se nomme le cortisol, est sécrétée par les deux surrénales. L’autre est une hormone synthétique appelée aussi “corticoïdes de synthèse” qui est prescrite sous forme de médicaments pour son effet anti-inflammatoire. On parle de syndrome de Cushing endogène lorsque le cortisol est sécrété en excès par les surrénales et de syndrome de Cushing exogène ou iatrogène lorsqu’il apparaît suite à la prise de médicaments.Symptômes du syndrome de CushingLe syndrome de Cushing associe différents symptômes qui peuvent s’installer progressivement et s’aggraver au fil des mois et des ans. Les signes les plus évocateurs d’un syndrome de Cushing sont : – Une prise de poids au niveau du visage et du haut du corps – Un visage bouffi et rouge- Une hypertension artérielle- Un excès de pilosité chez les femmes- Une fragilité de la peau (bleus, hématomes, vergetures)- Des cycles menstruels irréguliers- De la fatigueCauses du syndrome de CushingLe syndrome de Cushing peut être provoqué par des médicaments (les corticoïdes de synthèse) ou par une tumeur. Il peut s’agir d’une tumeur dans la glande surrénale qui fabrique trop de cortisol ou une tumeur située dans la glande hypophyse. À lire aussiACC (anticoagulants circulants) : définition, rôle, comment analyser les résultats ?Certaines tumeurs de l’hypophyse entraînent en effet une surproduction d’une autre hormone, l’ ACTH ou hormone corticotrope, et conduisent les glandes surrénales à produire trop de cortisol. On l’appelle alors “maladie de Cushing”.Traitement du syndrome de CushingLe syndrome de Cushing se soigne dans la majorité des cas par une intervention chirurgicale. Il s’agit de retirer la tumeur pour réduire la surproduction de cortisol ou d’enlever la surrénale malade. La radiothérapie et la chimiothérapie peuvent également être utilisées en cas de tumeur. Le 5 décembre 2016 à 12:30 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more
