Jayalalithaa writes to Modi on Lanka fishing issue

Jayalalithaa recalled that she had recently launched a landmark scheme of providing Rs 30 lakh subsidy assistance to 580 fishermen families for building 171 new Deep Sea Fishing Boats, the first of its kind in the country and a sum of Rs 51.3 crore had been sanctioned for the scheme.The Chief Minister also recalled that she had sought an assistance of Rs 1,520 crore as a comprehensive financial package from the Centre for diversification of fishing into India’s EEZ and to relieve pressure on the Palk Bay. “I request you to direct the Ministry of Agriculture to expeditiously consider and approve this proposal,” she added. “Till a comprehensive solution to this vexatious issue is found, I request you to appropriately convey to the Lankan authorities to instruct their Navy to refrain from apprehending our fishermen and impounding their fishing boats,” the Chief Minister said in her letter to the Prime Minister. She also said that there was high expectation in Tamil Nadu that the government headed by him at the Centre would act decisively on this very sensitive issue, which involved the livelihood of lakhs of poor fishermen in the coastal areas of Tamil Nadu. The Chief Minister requested the Prime Minister to direct the Ministry of External Affairs to take up the matter with the Sri Lankan authorities urgently and secure the immediate release of the 16 fishermen and 26 fishing boats in Lanka’s custody, at the earliest. The Chief Minister said, understanding the plight of Tamil Nadu fishermen, her government had been implementing various innovative schemes to build up their capacity to venture deeper into Indian Exclusive Economic Zone for fishing. Bringing to the notice of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi yet another incident of arrest of Tamil Nadu fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa urged him to take immediate steps to release the 16 fishermen and their boats.She also urged the Prime Minister to initiate proactive measures that would bring about a permanent solution to the sensitive issue affecting the livelihood of thousands of fishermen in Tamil Nadu, The New Indian Express reported. read more

Undercover cop case continues

A Toronto jury heard more allegations against Hamilton detective Constable Craig Ruthowsky today, including new evidence, that the officer was working with drug dealers and pocketing money. The 44 year-old has been suspended with pay since 2012, and is now on trial for charges that include bribery, trafficking cocaine and breach of trust.Former undercover officer Jennifer Lafleur was back on the stand after she broke down in tears yesterday, recalling the first operation that left her truly scared. She and her partner were trying to make a major drug deal with thousands of dollars, and were moved three times before they met up with their targets. Lafleur says she got urgent messages to pull out, and the deal was not completed. She was not allowed to give opinions in court, and her testimony ended with an agreed statement of fact. That it would be inappropriate for an officer to give up the identity of an undercover officer to a criminal.The crown alleges Craig Ruthowsky was being paid to protect a dealer, and that the officer called the dealer after the botched sting with Jennifer Lafleur, telling him he almost sold drugs to undercover officers.Next, the jury heard from Toronto Police drug expert John Margetson, who testified at length on his knowledge. He said he has never heard of a police officer taking a substance to a private lab for testing, as Ruthowsky is alleged to have done, to identify a cocaine cutting agent to cut costs for his dealer-associate. Health Canada does this for free for police.He also said the plants seized in this Stoney Creek bust in 2011 are too young to have produced any of the marijuana sold in the drug market. Court has heard Ruthowsky’s dealer-associate gave up this grow op in return for half the product, and he showed up at the scene to confirm the officer’s assertion the plants were not salable.Finally, the jury heard the beginning of a police interview with another officer who was once on the guns and weapons squad with Ruthowsky. Through his video statement, Robert Hansen says he knew that Ruthowsky got rid of a 5-foot-tall cocaine press that had been sitting in their office for some time.Ruthowsky is alleged to have sold the press to another dealer, taking two thousand and giving his dealer associate, the original cocaine press owner, $3000.Hansen’s video statement continues Friday. read more

UK weather June expected to be wettest on record as Met Office

He added: “The latest wet and wild weather over the weekend now means that we make it odds on to be the wettest on record.”Whilst we should get a warm summer overall it’s impossible to ignore the regular rain and we are taking bets on Wimbledon this year.”  “Heavy and persistent rain will continue for many, particularly across the east with thundery showers, especially in the south. “The driest and brightest weather will be found across the northwest. It will be often cool and windy across the country.”He added said that from Tuesday the rain will move to north east England and the West Midlands – but will last until Thursday.

With British temperatures recently rivalling the Mediterranean, it may have seemed that summer had firmly arrived. But June is now odds on to be the wettest on record, with yellow weather warnings issued for the coming week and the country set to be deluged by heavy rain. England is expected to see four days of rain, as forecasters at the Met Office warn of potential floods across the south east.Meteorologists claimed that 20 hours of continual downpours could be seen on Monday.Simon Partridge, of the Met Office, said: “There’s potential for floods anywhere east from Oxfordshire, extending down to the coast. “There’s weather warnings from Monday to Wednesday and starting from 4am, there will be 20 hours of rain in some places.”The downpours across southern England mean that around a month’s worth of rainfall could fall within 24 hours on Monday.Mr Partridge said: “Across this region we could see 40-60mm of rain and about 14-15 degrees Celsius on Monday, but it will feel colder due to rain.”England will see showers for much of the week. Scotland, in particular the west coast, will have the best of the weather for a change, with up to 18 degrees. strong wet weather Mr Partridge said: “It is unusual that the weather is coming in from the south east – it’s very slow moving and won’t just fizzle out.”This week will see potential highs of just 66.2F (19C), a marked shift from the 82.4F (28C) heat seen in London on June 3.   Bookmakers have said that 2019 could be the wettest year on record, whilst odds were 25-1 for it to rain on each day of Wimbledon. “We’re getting towards the half way point of June now and it’s been an incredibly wet month so far,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead. read more

Australia downgrades longterm outlook for Great Barrier Reef to very poor

first_img Friday 30 Aug 2019, 1:28 PM Short URL AUSTRALIA HAS DOWNGRADED the Great Barrier Reef’s long-term outlook to “very poor” for the first time today, as the world heritage site struggles with “escalating” climate change.In its latest five-yearly report on the health of the world’s largest coral reef system, the government’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority singled out rising sea temperatures as the biggest threat to the giant organism.“The significant and large-scale impacts from record-breaking sea surface temperatures have resulted in coral reef habitat transitioning from poor to very poor condition,” the government agency said.“Climate change is escalating and is the most significant threat to the Region’s long-term outlook.“Significant global action to address climate change is critical to slowing deterioration of the Reef’s ecosystem and heritage values and supporting recovery,” it said.But the agency added that the threats to the 2,300-kilometre reef were “multiple, cumulative and increasing” and, in addition to warming seas, included agricultural runoff and coral-eating crown of thorns starfish. The agency said the outlook downgrade from “poor” in 2014 to “very poor” now reflected the greater expanse of coral deterioration across the massive reef, notably following back-to-back coral bleaching events caused by sea temperature spikes in 2016 and 2017.  “The window of opportunity to improve the reef’s long-term future is now,” it said. The conservative Australian government has faced criticism from environmentalists for favouring an expansion of its massive coal mining and export industry over action to curb climate change. Today’s reef report coincided with the release of new government data showing that Australia’s emissions of greenhouse gases blamed for climate change continued a four-year rising trend during the first half of 2019. The government insists it is meeting its emissions targets as set under international protocols, including the Paris climate agreement, and argues that Australia’s total greenhouse gas output remains far below that of major polluting nations.“This report calls out climate change as the biggest threat to the reef,” Environment Minister Sussan Ley acknowledged at the release of the outlook report.  But she added: “We are taking the action that we’re required to do under our Paris agreements.” Environmentalists said the latest reef outlook put new pressure on Prime Minister Scott Morrison over his support for expanding production of coal, Australia’s biggest export. “Australia must do its fair share in the global effort to tackle climate pollution. That means moving on from digging up and burning coal and gas for our energy,” said Kelly O’Shanassy, CEO of the Australian Conservation Foundation.  The United Nations had asked to receive the latest update on the reef’s health by December so that it can determine whether the site can retain its world heritage status when UNESCO next considers the issue in 2020.  The reef is estimated to be worth at least €3.6 billion a year to the Australian economy – serving as a magnet for tourists and emblem of the country. Ian Poiner, chairman of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, said that “the reef remains vibrant, beautiful, and it is still resilient”.“However, coral reefs globally are declining, including the Great Barrier Reef, and we know why. The reason is… climate change impacts that require a global response.”© – AFP 2019 Image: Shutterstock/JC Photo 18,106 Views Share61 Tweet Email1 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Australia downgrades long-term outlook for Great Barrier Reef to ‘very poor’ “Climate change is escalating and is the most significant threat to the Region’s long-term outlook.” By AFP 45 Comments Aug 30th 2019, 1:28 PM Image: Shutterstock/JC Photolast_img read more

Soy Growers Ask President Trump to Support Renewable Fuel Standard

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) joined the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) and the National Renderers Association on a letter last week, urging President Donald Trump to keep his promises to support and protect the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).Reports indicate the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted exemptions from RFS volume obligations to several refineries for the 2016 and 2017 compliance years. EPA has apparently granted Andeavor a hardship waiver for its three smallest refineries, despite the fact that their profits last year were approximately $1.5 billion dollars. At least two other refineries with hundreds of millions of dollars in annual profits appear to have also been granted exemptions.The biodiesel industry is extremely concerned with EPA’s decision to give large, profitable refiners waivers from their RFS obligations, which reduces demand for biodiesel and feedstock providers.ASA, NBB, and the National Renderers Association also note concern with the inconsistent signals from the administration.“Contrary to your steadfast support, the EPA has undermined the RFS through recent actions granting so-called ‘hardship’ exemptions designed for small refiners,” the letter states. “This has a direct impact on consumers, renderers, fuel marketers, biofuel producers and hundreds of thousands of American soybean farmers. The actions taken by the EPA undermine the integrity of the RFS and stand in direct contrast to your pledge of support…”]Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) led a bipartisan group of 13 senators in writing to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt requesting the agency cease issuing the so-called “hardship” waivers exempting obligated parties from the RFS, provide topline information about the waivers already issued, disclose whether or not the agency redistributed the waived volume obligations among the non-exempted obligated parties and outline the agency’s plan to make the waiver process more transparent. The full text of the senators’ letter can be found here.If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Tom Hance in the ASA Washington office at 202-969-7040 or thance@soy.orglast_img read more

Off Beat Egyptologist finds parallels between ancient modern societies

first_imgAn authority on ancient Egypt provided her expertise recently when The Columbian previewed a new exhibition at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.Kara Cooney enjoys finding modern parallels for ancient concepts. Lots of things can change over the centuries, she said, but people are still people — “Often with the same DNA, and the same social systems and inequalities.”She says that shared humanity is why “being in the presence of a mummified body is very humbling. They were a living, breathing person.”“We’re not invulnerable. We’re just like them,” said Cooney, associate professor of Egyptology at UCLA. “You will be what they are.”Cooney produced and created a series for the Discovery Channel, “Out of Egypt,” showing the ancient roots of elements of modern society.“It’s fun for me. There is a lot of stuff on TV where the producers get it wrong,” she said.She was on Craig Ferguson’s late-night TV show last week, discussing how political unrest has threatened the security of Egypt’s museums and cultural treasures. (The segment is at ‘Lost’ assignmentOn another TV series, however, her job wasn’t to explain: It was to mystify. The producers of ABC’s “Lost” asked Cooney to write Egyptian hieroglyphics that could be sprinkled through episodes of the show.last_img read more

In police custody at night 4 men dead dumped next morning

first_imgJamal Uddin, father of Faruk Hossain, sheds tears after seeing his son`s body at Narayanganj General Hospital. Photo: Dinar MahmudFaruk Hossain was living with his wife and son in Purinda area of Araihazar, Narayanganj. He was earning a living serving as driver of Glory Paribahan bus that runs from Bhulta to Gulistan.Faruk was picked up by a group of plainclothesmen from his house on Friday afternoon and later taken to Bhulta police outpost, his wife Taslima Begum said. Other witnesses said, three others were also detained.Taslima went to Bhulta police outpost to see her husband with homemade foods on Saturday night.The next morning, she came to know that the bullet-hit body of Faruk and those of three others were recovered from beside the highway in Araihazar upazilla.Each of them was shot in the head from point-blank distance, their primary autopsy reports suggest.The three other victims were identified as Zahirul Islam, Sabuj Sardar and Lutfur Rahman.Local transport workers in Bhulta said they heard that bus-driver Faruk was killed in ‘crossfire’ by the police. A bus owner also visited the outpost and saw the dead bodies. Faruk’s father contacted the certain bus owner seeking help to release his son, the family said.The bus owner, however, could not be reached for comments.Officials of Bhulta police outpost and district police denied such allegations.According to the police statements, they recovered four bullet-hit bodies from a place beside the Dhaka-Sylhet highway in Pachrukhi area of Araihazar upazila in Naranyanganj on Sunday morning.The police recovered two loaded firearms and an abandoned microbus from the spot, they said.One of the victims, Lutfur Rahman, was identified by his wife Reshma Akhter at Narayanganj General Hospital morgue on Sunday afternoon.Lutfur was a microbus driver for many years, according to Reshma.Faruk’s wife Taslima told Prothom Alo that, three relatives from their village Sabuj, Zahirul and Liton were staying at their house and they were picked up on Friday.Liton is still missing and no one knows about his whereabouts.Taslima said she did not know Lutfur Rahman, the microbus driver.On Saturday, Taslima came to know from a bus owner that Faruk had been kept in Bhulta police outpost and went there with dinner items for her husband.The police, first, barred her from meeting Faruk. But after her requests, the police let Taslima see her husband. Then, Faruk told her, “They (police) severely beat me. And so, I admitted everything (they wanted I do).”Taslima could not, however, clarify what ‘everything’ meant.Faruk’s father Jamal Uddin, Sabuj’s father Khairul Sardar and Zahirul’s father-in-law came to Narayanganj from Pabna on Saturday morning.Jamal Uddin said he contacted with a bus owner through one of his nephews. The bus owner told him that all of them were kept in Bhulta police outpost.“I requested the bus owner whether the police would send Faruk and others to court. After that, he acquired information and told me that all of them have been kept in the police outpost,” Jamal Uddin told Prothom Alo.And then on Sunday morning the bus owner told Jamal Uddin that three of them were taken to somewhere else early in the morning and only one was kept in the outpost.Faruk’s wife Taslima said she went to the outpost on Sunday morning and finding no one there, she started crying for her husband there. At that time, the police threatened her to open fire on her, she said.Bhulta police outpost in-charge inspector Rafikul Islam told this correspondent that such incidents never took place.Also the police superintendent of Narayanganj said, “Whoever are spreading such rumours, are telling lies.”The police, however, filed two cases against unknown miscreants under Murder and Arms Act following the killing.Liton’s whereaboutsLiton was picked up with Faruk and two others on Friday. His brother Ripon told Prothom Alo that they heard Rupganj highway police recovered the body of an unknown man from the area and later buried it.The body could be Liton’s and the family was trying to identify it, Ripon added.* This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Imam Hossain and Farjana Liakat.last_img

How Facebook Was Able To Siphon Off Phone Call And Text Logs

first_img Share REUTERS/Dado RuvicA smartphone user shows the Facebook application on his phone in the central Bosnian town of Zenica, in this photo illustration, May 2, 2013.The news that Facebook’s Android app has been collecting call and text histories is yet another black eye for the social media giant. But just why was Facebook able to siphon off records of who its users were contacting — and when — in the first place?The short answer: Because Google let it. The longer answer: Well, it’s complicated.The social network acknowledged on Sunday that it began uploading call and text logs from phones running Google’s Android system in 2015 — first via its Messenger app and later through an option in Facebook Lite, a stripped-down version of its main app. Facebook added that only users who gave appropriate permission were affected, that it didn’t collect the contents of messages or calls, and that users can opt out of the data collection and have the stored logs deleted by changing their app settings.Facebook did not respond to multiple requests for more specifics. The kerfuffle over this data collection, first reported by the website Ars Technica , follows a week of turmoil for the social network involving charges that it allowed political consultants to steal the data of 50 million users in order to influence elections.There’s a reason Facebook’s actions were restricted to Android phones. Apple locks down app permissions tightly, which offers more privacy protection to iPhone users. “Apple’s fundamental approach is to collect the minimum amount of information to keep the service running, and keep customers in control of the information,” said Rich Mogull, CEO of the security firm Securosis.But Android has long been more indulgent.Until recently, in fact, Google let app developers gain access to a phone’s call and text logs. All they needed was an app that required access to user contacts. Once users agreed, Android would then also grant access to those communication histories.Starting in 2012 with its “Jelly Bean” release, Android would notify people installing such apps that they were also giving apps access to their call and text logs, but still required them to agree to all those permissions at once. Rejecting the request meant the apps wouldn’t work.It wasn’t until 2015 when Google released Android 6.0, dubbed “Marshmallow,” that Android phones finally split up those permissions. That meant users could agree to share contacts, but reject access to their messaging and phone histories.That’s the same year Facebook says its apps started collecting this information. But many Android users aren’t using the latest version of the software. In fact, they often can’t get it even if they want it.Apple owns both the software and hardware for iPhones, which allows it to push out new versions of its iOS operating software at will. Google, by contrast, is largely at the mercy of both mobile carriers and hardware makers when it comes to distributing new Android versions.There are nearly 20,000 Android phone models now in service, and carriers like to tweak the software for each to ensure that it will work as smoothly as possible on their networks. As a result, new Android versions reach users very slowly.As of January, about 65 percent of iPhone users were using the latest iOS software, introduced in 2017. Less than 1 percent of Android devices currently use the latest version of Android, known as “Oreo.” (Many of them are owners of Google’s new Pixel phones, which get software updates directly from Google.)Just over half of all Android users are using the two previous versions, which allow them to specifically reject the sharing of communication logs. Last October, Google began forcing all apps to follow the new rules when they issue updates, even on phones running older versions of Android.All that leaves two big questions unanswered. Why did Google set up Android permissions this way? And how many other apps have taken advantages of the same setup?Experts and privacy advocates say the answer to the first question is probably related to Google’s advertising-based business model, which — like Facebook — depends on collecting detailed information about users in order to target them with tailored ads. Apple, meanwhile, derives its profits from the sale of devices and services like Apple Music.Another possible factor: Android was playing catch-up with Apple for many years, and was eager to attract app developers in order to attain parity with Apple’s App Store. Some app developers may have found greater access to user data on Android attractive — as Facebook did.Experts say it’s not clear if other apps are going as far as Facebook in terms of tracking call history and texts, but it’s very possible.“In a lot of ways, Facebook is the tip of the iceberg,” said Bob O’Donnell, chief analyst at Technalysis Research. “There are plenty of other people doing this kind of data collection.”It is unclear how many apps gained access to call logs so far or how many users’ call logs had been sent to app developers. A Google spokesperson declined to comment.One major Android phone maker expressed uncertainty over its role in protecting user privacy. “At this time the nature of the data breach is unclear so it is difficult to comment on the cause or the solution,” LG Electronics Inc. said Tuesday in a statement.last_img read more

Trevor Jimenez mines Canadian childhood with Oscar

Growing up as an only child with divorced parents, Trevor Jimenez spent weekdays with his mom in Hamilton and weekends with his dad in Toronto.

Such elements are woven into Jimenez’s touching short animated film, “Weekends,” which is up for an Oscar on Sunday. THE CANADIAN PRESS/ HO, Trevor Jimenez by Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 19, 2019 10:42 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO — Growing up as an only child with divorced parents, Trevor Jimenez spent weekdays with his mom in Hamilton and weekends with his dad in Toronto.His mom was in a few car accidents during Jimenez’s childhood and his memories of that time are often laced with visuals of her with a neck brace on.His dad, meanwhile, lived in a condominium near Toronto’s Chinatown neighbourhood and Jimenez remembers seeing the bright lights of the city zip by as they drove along the Gardiner Expressway to get there.Such elements are woven into Jimenez’s touching short animated film, “Weekends,” which is up for an Oscar on Sunday in a category that also includes Vancouver-based couple David Fine and Alison Snowden for “Animal Behaviour,” and Toronto-raised Domee Shi for “Bao.”“There’s a lot I’ve taken from my childhood and my own experiences and put into the film,” Jimenez said in a phone interview. “So it’s loaded with that kind of sentiment for me.”Jimenez wrote and directed the 15-minute, 2D story, which follows a little boy who splits time between his mom’s house and his dad’s Toronto apartment in the 1980s.The film is free of dialogue, instead telling the story with music, ambient sound, dream-like moments and roughly styled classical animation.His mother’s place is quiet, littered with moving boxes and sparse on furniture at the start of the film, indicating the breakup is fresh and raw. She wears a neck brace and seems to be struggling emotionally. Later, a new man enters her life and the relationship is a volatile one.The neck brace was intended to indicate the car accidents his mother went through, but also “to visually show a fragility in her, to make you care, which is how I felt when I was a kid,” Jimenez, who works in the story department at Pixar, said from Berkeley, Calif.The boy’s experiences with his dad are markedly more vibrant. They drive into the city together with “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits blasting on the speakers, watch body-horror movies on TV while eating popcorn and Chinese takeout, and play with a samurai sword and his father’s antiques.“He’s really into history, just as the character in the film, and antiques in general, so I have memories of going to Harbourfront. He actually had samurai armour in the house and crazy paintings and furniture,” Jimenez said.He also recalls watching David Cronenberg and Akira Kurosawa movies with his dad. “Lots of films I probably shouldn’t have been watching, but it definitely influenced me in a big way.”Jimenez started making “Weekends” more than 10 years ago, after graduating from Ontario’s Sheridan College in 2007 and working with several big companies, including Disney Feature Animation, Illumination Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios.He funded it with a stipend from a Pixar co-op film program that supports independent filmmaking for employees, and in 2016, recruited Chris Sasaki to be the production designer.“Weekends” has already won prizes at various festivals and was nominated for an Annie Award for best animated short subject.When the Oscar nomination came in last month, Jimenez saw it on a live stream with his wife, with whom he was celebrating their wedding anniversary that same day.His mom was also present, on Skype, and cried when she heard her son’s name.“I think it’s a personal story for her too,” he said. “She had been a part of the film before it was created and I’ve shared every version of it with her just to make sure she was comfortable with it. “I think a lot of it is the proud mom but I think it’s a special feeling and moment with for her, too.
