Press Trust of India New DelhiFebruary 19, 2019UPDATED: February 19, 2019 19:40 IST Minerva Punjab said they will not object if the court directs it to first go to the I-League committee (@minervapunjabfc Photo)HIGHLIGHTSMinerva Punjab did not travel to Srinagar for their I-League match against Real KashmirMinerva filed a writ petition at the Delhi High Court, challenging AIFF’s refusal to move the matchAIIF taken a dim view of Minerva’s no-show and said the champions could expect further actionMinerva Punjab’s petition challenging the AIFF’s refusal to postpone their I-League match against Real Kashmir FC in Srinagar is expected to come up for hearing on Friday at the Delhi High court, the club’s lawyers said Tuesday, insisting that the team’s “well-founded” fears have been ignored.Minerva did not show up for their clash against a ready RKFC in Srinagar on Monday after asserting that the home club and the All India Football Federation (AIFF) failed in providing written security assurances in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack.The I-League defending champions filed a writ petition at the Delhi High court, challenging AIFF’s refusal to either move the match to some other venue or postpone it, on Monday itself.Amitabh Tiwari, the counsel for Minerva, said the club will not object if the court directs it to first go to the I-League committee to sort out the issue.”If the AIFF wants to settle the case at the court on the day of hearing, we are fine. But if the court directs us to first go to the I-League committee and see if it is possible to sort out the matter there, we will do so,” Tiwari told PTI.In the petition, Minerva has accused the AIFF of acting arbitrarily and said the AIFF’s rejection of its request to postpone the match was against the principles of equity and are violative of the I-League regulations 2018-19 and the FIFA Safety Guidelines.”The AIFF is acting arbitrarily and without reason as earlier in the month the match between Real Kashmir FC and East Bengal was postponed on account of snow whereas the present situation is much more serious and lives of the players and the spectators are at risk,” the petition said.advertisement”Minerva’s fears are well-founded and a request to postpone the match by 2 weeks would not affect any party especially in light of the fact that it has been done before for completely avoidable reasons.”The Punjab club also said the AIFF has not taken into account the e-mails sent by them wherein they have categorically stated that the international players on their roster have been advised by their respective countries to not travel to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.”If AIFF can postpone the match with East Bengal due to snow then they should have taken the lead and postponed the match for 7-10 days,” said the petition.”It’s ironical that the entire world plays football on snow but on that pretext the match with East Bengal was postponed by almost 3 weeks. The decision smacks of hypocrisy on AIFF’s part.”The decision of AIFF not to postpone the match is akin to forcing the players and spectators to play Russian Roulette with their lives.”The AIFF has not yet called the match a forfeiture by Minerva and has referred the matter to its I-League Committee. As per FIFA rules, a forfeiture leads to the awarding of full points to teh side which shows up, in this case Real Kashmir.The entire sequence of events is a fallout of Thursday’s attack in which at least 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers were killed while several others injured. It has been termed the deadliest terrorist strike in three decades in Jammu and Kashmir.Also Read | Minerva Punjab likely to face action after no-show in Srinagar for Real Kashmir tieAlso Read | Srinagar not the place to play football right now: Minerva boss responds to Real KashmirAlso Read | Real Kashmir to East Bengal: Dear friends, come and play in Srinagar.

New Delhi: Relieved after getting a one- year extension on her residence permit, Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen has expressed hope that the government will consider giving her either a longer permit or a permanent one as she is the “daughter of this soil” and even her cat is Indian.”India is my home. It would have been better if I did not need to worry every year. There is also the option of issuing residence permit for five or 10 years. I requested former home minister Rajnath Singh ji for this in 2014 as I want to live in India for rest of my life,” she told PTI in an interview. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Nasreen’s residence permit was extended for one year by the Home Ministry on Sunday. She is a citizen of Sweden and has been getting residence permit on a continuous basis since 2004. The 56-year-old writer was last week given a three-month residence permit following which she took to Twitter to request Home Minister Amit Shah to extend it for one year. “I am called a foreigner but I feel like the daughter of this soil. I hope the government will reconsider giving me a permanent or a longer resident permit. I have passed 25 years in exile, still I have to worry every year about the ground beneath my feet. It affects my writing also,” she said. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”I feel Delhi is the only place in the subcontinent where I can live peacefully.

If you don’t consider me Indian, my cat is Indian, who is like my daughter and has been with me for 16 years,” she added. Nasreen said that despite several countries offering her permanent residence, she chose India as she felt a cultural connect here. “My home, my books, my clothes, and my documents everything is here. I don’t have any home somewhere else. I am settled here. Why I should leave India,” she said when asked about the reason for staying in the country. “I am a European citizen but I left Europe and the US to live here. I chose India over all other countries which offered me citizenship or permanent resident permit,” said Nasreen. She feels that India is much more liberal than any other country in the world as far as freedom of speech is concerned. PTI
Darjeeling: A step by step approach has been adopted for the conservation of red pandas. Reintroducing zoo bred pandas in the wild is the main objective of this. As a step in this direction a workshop titled “Red Panda Global Species Management Plan was flagged off in Darjeeling.”We are working towards releasing four captive-bred red pandas in the Singhalila National Park in September or October this year,” said Vinod Kumar Yadav, member secretary, West Bengal Zoo Authority and Additional Principal Conservator of Forests, Government of West Bengal. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaPreparations are on for this. “We have already submitted plans for this to the Government of India. Genetic studies; DNA finger printing, habitat evaluation, including satellite mapping, drone images are being combined for this project,” said Yadav. The red pandas will first be released in a special enclosure in Gairibas following which they will be released in the wild. “The conservation programme is a step by step approach. Last year we had a national level workshop involving the Central Zoo Authority and the states like West Bengal, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Uttarkhand. The national workshop paved way to this four-day long global programme which is now being held in Darjeeling. After we successfully introduce red pandas in the Singhalila National Park our next goal will be to introduce them in Neora Valley. This is how we plan to augment the panda population in the wild,” added Yadav. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayA 17 crore programme for 10 years named Special Survival Plan is underway. The expansion of the special breeding facility at Tobgaydanra, Darjeeling is also covered under this programme. In order to introduce fresh blood lines in the captive breeding programme in the Darjeeling zoo, red pandas will be brought in from foreign countries including Australia. The Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park (PNHZP) popular as the Darjeeling Zoo, is the coordinating zoo for the red panda breeding programme (Project Red Panda) in India. The project was initiated in 1990. At present there are 13 female and 8 male red pandas. In 1999, a pair of zoo bred red pandas — Minnie and Sweetie — were released in the forests of Gairibans below Sandakphu. Again in September 2004 another pair Neelam and Dolma were released in the wild in September 2004. Later Sweetie was found to have given birth to a cub in the hollow of an oak tree, thereby bringing the Project Red Panda to a full circle. A red panda census had been launched in 2018. “The census is being conducted in two parts. We have physically identified the red pandas individually, found their nests. In the other part genetic analysis is being done from the scat of red pandas. In this way we will come out with the red panda population” stated Ravi kant Sinha, Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife.) Representatives including experts from USA, Holland, Australia, Hungary, Singapore and Nepal are attending the 4 day long conference in Darjeeling.
3 August 2007A six-member team of international nuclear safety experts, assembled by the United Nations atomic watchdog agency, is set to arrive in Japan on Sunday to begin a six-day mission to examine the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant that was affected by a strong earthquake last month. The mission, at the invitation from the Japanese Government, is important for identifying lessons learned that might have implications for the international nuclear safety regime, UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Mohamed ElBaradei said in a news release today.The team comprises two IAEA experts and four internationally recognized specialists in seismic safety, who will study current conditions at the plant, complementing an ongoing evaluation by Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) and Nuclear Safety Commission (NSC), as well as by the plant’s operators, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO).The experts will report their findings to the Japanese authorities and to the Director General. The team will leave Japan on 11 August.
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said that while cereal stocks in the region are ample, the spell of dry weather and erratic rains earlier in the season signals multiple risks to agricultural yields and may aggravate the impact of the Fall Armyworm pest.Reduced harvests are foreseen to intensify food insecurity in 2018, increasing the number of people in need of assistance, according to a new Special Alert issued by FAO’s Global Information and Early Warning System (GIEWS).Maize production hit a record level in 2017 in the Southern Africa subregion, a welcome development after sharp output declines in the previous year caused by an unusually strong El Niño. Cereal production in the sub-region in 2018 is foreseen to fall due to erratic rains, along with an intense dry period in January.The alert comes as FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva, speaking in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, emphasized the importance of boosting the resilience of communities – particularly in Africa – in making sure that “Zero Hunger is possible.”Precipitation trends also matter greatly for the Fall Armyworm, an invasive species that has now been detected in all countries of the subregion, except Lesotho and Mauritius. While recent heavy rains in some localities may have contributed to containing the pest’s spread, the general dry weather may help it spread and could exacerbate the impact on yields.
Perhaps in the deepest, darkest depths of winter, you seeded too many tomato plants in the hope it would make spring come sooner, and now you are overrun.Or maybe you’ve finally decided to split that unruly hosta but you prefer filling the new gaps in your garden with coral bells rather than that hosta’s leafy offshoots.Digg at Brock has a solution for your burgeoning plant population: its annual plant exchange.People with plants to contribute to the exchange can drop them off to the Brock community garden Tuesday, May 19 to Thursday, May 21 between 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The garden is located next to Theal House, near Zone 2 parking.Plants can also be dropped off on Friday, May 22 at Schmon Tower betwee 8 a.m. and noon.Contributors can return to swap their contributions for something new from noon to 4:30 p.m.For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brock University is launching a major reorganization of key student services in order to streamline and enhance capacity for student success.This spring, two existing service centres — Student Health Services, and the Student Development Centre — will be reorganized into two new administrative units, providing greater integration of student services.The Student Success Centre will be the home of Learning Skills Services, central Academic Advising (currently in the Registrar’s Office) and Aboriginal Academic Supports. These resources will focus on helping students achieve academic success through advising and academic support.The second new unit will incorporate student health services, personal counselling and accessibility services. This new Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre will function as a “one-stop” destination for students seeking health, wellness and accommodation services.Both of these newly configured student services centres will report to the Vice-Provost, Teaching, Learning and Student Success.Neil McCartney, Brock’s Provost and Vice-President Academic, said last year’s departure of former Vice-Provost Kim Meade provided the opportunity to review and reorganize student support services.“We have been able to more effectively concentrate and integrate student support services,” said McCartney.Anna Lathrop, Vice-Provost for Teaching, Learning and Student Success, said creating a fully integrated model for related services will better serve students.“There are natural alignments between Student Success and Student Wellness and Accessibility,” said Lathrop. “Each contributes an essential support network that should be integrated and interdependent.”
6. Dunkerque HB Grand Littora…6105137:148(-11)2 ← Previous Story VIDEO: New face of Jeffrey M’tima Next Story → Zagreb win handball war against Meshkov Vive Tauron Kielce beat at home Aalborg Handball 33:26 and remain at the top of the group D table. Polish team, just like a week ago, had to manage without inured Aginagalde, Reichmannand Rosiński; Aalborg arrived in Kielce without Berggren who played a very good game last week.First half didn’t begin well for the hosts. They couldn’t break through Danish defence while having problems with their own. Aalborg seemed very well prepared – they took advantage of the situation and took the lead. After 15 minutes they lead by 3 goals (5:8) but Olafur Gustafsson got 2-minute-suspension and Kielce in powerplay came from behind (7:8). Polish champions seemed to be getting back on the right track: in 22. minute Karol Bielecki equalized at 10:10 by scoring a penalty shot, and a moment later Denis Buntić gave his team the very first lead in the match. Kielce improved both their defence and attack and forged ahead. 3 minutes from the half-time they lead 16:12; the result at the break was 18:15. Bielecki scored hit the net one more time but the referees decided it was too late and they goal wasn’t accepted.In the beginning of the second half it was Aalborg team that took the better start. In the space of 2 minutes they almost reduced the gap (18:17, 32. minute). They even had a chance to equalize as Kielce made a lot of mistakes but they failed to do that and as a result Kielce started scoring. One of the reasons for this was Marin Šego who did much better than his team mate Szmal in the first half and helped his team with a pair of great saves. On the other side of the court Soren Westphal also managed to save a couple of throws but it wasn’t enough for the Danish team to endanger their opponents. The result became quite stable, Kielce kept leading by 4 or so goals. In the 50. minute a penalty throw executed by Bielecki stirred up some controversies. The ball hit the crossbar and bounced off almost vertically. The referees decided it bounced inside the goal and counted the goal in spite of protests of the Danish players. By the end of the game Marin Šego got a reward for his good performance. Aalborg often played with libero leaving the goal without a goalkeeper. After one of the unsuccessful Danish attacks, Šego got to score a goal for 31:25. The result was closed in 60. minute by Zorman.One of the outstanding players in the Polish team was Denis Buntić who scored 8 goals; it was also a good game of Karol Bielecki who scored 6 times. The top scorer for Aalborg was Sander Sagosen (7 goals).TEXT: MARTYNA USNARSKASTANDINGS: 1. KS Vive Tauron Kielce6600188:162(26)12 5. Kadetten Schaffhausen6114158:181(-23)3 2.

© 2012 PhysOrg.com Then Kaspersky’s Fabio Assolini, a lab expert, said one bit of malware especially caught his team’s attention because the malicious extension was hosted on Google’s own Chrome Web Store. “At this time,” Assolini said in a March 23 blog, “the malicious app has 923 users.”The extension presented itself as Adobe Flash Player. After installation, the extension could gain complete control of the victim’s profile first by downloading a script file. The script file had instructions to send commands to the victim’s Facebook profile. The result was the eventual spread of a malicious message, inviting more users to install the fake extension. So what’s in such a scheme for the malware makers? Profit, in the form of selling Facebook “likes” to businesses looking for (ironically) a reputation boost and may be willing to pay the $27 charged for 1,000 “likes.”According to reports, Google personnel removed the malicious extension after Kaspersky informed them of the hustle – titled Trojan.JS.Agent.bxo—which the Kaspersky experts had discovered on March 6 in a previous similar attack.According to Ars Technica, a Google response was, “When we detect items containing malware or learn of them through reports, we remove them from the Chrome Web Store and from active Chrome instances. We’ve already removed several of these extensions, and we are improving our automated systems to help detect them even faster.” Beyond the Store, one security plus for Google was the launch, earlier this year, of Bouncer, which scans the Android Market for malicious apps. The scan happens when developers first upload an app to the Market and then periodically after that.The Bouncer safeguard does not, however, seem to console observers over thieves who find ways to outsmart Facebook and Google.Those behind the cash-for-likes scheme “are uploading new extensions regularly, in a cat and mouse game,” said Kaspersky’s Assolini.Kaspersky Lab noticed a “huge wave” of attacks in Brazil. Without naming the miscreants, Assolini’s column warning users to “think twice” before installing Chrome extensions simply referred to “Brazil’s bad guys” turning their attention to Chrome and Facebook, which are now Brazil’s two key go-to places on the Internet. Recent statistics show that Google Chrome has become the most popular browser in Brazil with more than 45 percent of market share. Facebook is the most popular social network in Brazil, with 42 million users, displacing Orkut. This document is subject to copyright.

The researchers first discovered extensions leading to the wave of hijackings under an umbrella of assorted themes that were targeting users of Chrome and Facebook. They were rolling out malicious extensions for use to nab Facebook profile data. The lure was in the form of invitations for users to make changes on their profile or to see who was visiting their profile or to remove a virus from their Facebook profile.

Some call it the information age, or the digital era. I call it the age of the mobile phone.It probably won’t last forever, and I have no idea what’s going to come next. But with more and more of the internet access coming from mobile, it’s a fact we have to accept.This is the mobile age.So, as an entrepreneur, what’s your mobile presence like? Are you an app CEO? Or, do you only have a physical store? Are you web only? Are apps something you’ve always talked about getting into, but you didn’t know how to get started?Related: Apple Wants to Teach You How to Make AppsIf so, that’s fine — you’re not alone. I bet you’re still killing it. But you could probably do more. Remember: This is the mobile age.This is your app idea.I’ll make an assumption and say you’re already sold on how bad you need an app. I’ll take it you’ve already got a big app idea. So the next logical step is learning to code it out. DIY, right? No. Absolutely, 100 percent wrong. That’s like building your own house with your own two hands.I mean, why not? You have the idea, the vision of what your perfect house looks like. Supplies are readily available at a big-box store. Wood, nails, tools, go buy some! Hell, you can even find a ton of books and courses on home building. There are entire websites and YouTube channels dedicated to this!So, can you build your own house from scratch? Sure, it will simply take ten times as long to move in. Oh, and don’t ask me to step foot in that death trap.This is how to do it.Seriously, if you’re not a pro already, hire one. There are tons and tons of people who want to build your app. People that know what they’re doing, and can do it pretty damn good too. The bonus is that if you know what you’re looking for, it won’t even cost you close to the $50,000 you probably think it costs to build out your idea!Related: 8 Steps to Hire Best Freelance App DeveloperIf you don’t hire a someone that knows what they’re doing, if you don’t delegate this out to a true professional, congrats! You’ve just taken on a new hobby.Not a business. A hobby. Learning to code takes years to master. Yes, I’ll admit: You can get a prototype out by learning a few things and using some cool tools that you find, but I still think that’s a hobby. So if “learning to code” is your one reason why you’re not in the app game right now, you need to admit that you’re just afraid. This is your obstacle.That’s because learning to code is a roadblock invented by fear. Fear of success (imposter syndrome), fear of delegation (control freak, like me) or fear of something else. It’s all just fear.My favorite pro tip for dealing with fear in your business is simply to examine it. Is it a reasonable fear? Meaning, should you be afraid? If so, you can fix that. There’s something that is wrong with the plan or idea, so fix it. If not, ignore it. Find a mentor to guide you through the process, get a pro to build it out for you and just ignore your fear.

TORONTO — In seven years Club Med’s Groups business has tripled out of the Canadian market.Not only that, the Club Med team dedicated to Group sales has also doubled in the past few years.Last night’s Meetings & Events by Club Med reception, presented with partner Air Transat in Toronto, was hosted by one of those new additions to the Club Med Groups team, Lori de Montmorency.For several months now Montmorency has served as Club Med’s MICE BDM based in Toronto, dedicated to Club Med’s MICE sales for English Canada.And in 2016 the department launched a new brand identity, to better translate how Club Med can offer different types of group experiences. More details are at en.meetings-events-clubmed.ca/.Already the all-inclusive pioneer, Club Med has gone all-in on Groups business too. Why? “The MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) market is very important for Club Med as we are able to offer experiences for corporate clients that want to bring their team at destination,” says Melanie St-Germain, Groups Sales Manager for Meetings & Events by Club Med.More news: Flights cancelled as British Airways hit by computer problemShe added: “Companies value more and more their colleagues working with them. Companies are looking to share a message through corporative events (eg. trainings, meetings), reinforce ties through team buildings activities (creative, social, active) and bring together their teams through pleasant moments including entertainment and dinners.“In one location, Club Med can provide all those aspects thanks to our MICE and leisure offer at destination.”Agents can position Club Med’s product “as a great asset for the company to create immediate return on investment, in regards to employee loyalty,” she adds.The MICE market is a big piece of Groups business but it’s not the only piece and St-Germain wants agents to know that plenty of Groups opportunities exist beyond MICE. “Welcoming groups at Club Med is very diversified and not only for MICE groups,” says St-Germain. Examples include training & educational programs, product launches, sports programs (eg. ski, golf, scuba diving, tennis, etc.) and, of course, family reunions and destinations weddings.More news: CIE Tours launches first-ever River Cruise CollectionClub Med resorts have Groups coordinators on site and together with the property’s G.O.s, “we are able to offer tailored experiences to different types of groups and provide specific atmospheres in different parts of the resort.”Club Med’s dedicated Groups team in Canada can organize and coordinate the program for the client, from activities to booking and setting up meetings rooms, to dining logistics, private dining and excursions, plus flights, she adds. << Previous PostNext Post >> Wednesday, April 25, 2018 Share Travelweek Group Tags: Club Med Posted by All-inclusive pioneer Club Med now going all-in with Groups business
