The Friday news briefing An ataglance survey of some top stories

first_imgHighlights from the news file for Friday, Sept. 1———THE CANADIAN PRESS TURNS 100: The Canadian Press marked its 100th birthday on Friday. The national news agency was created during the First World War to bring home stories from the European battlefields. It went on to become a journalistic institution in Canada, playing a central role in providing news stories, photos, videos and broadcast items to media outlets across Canada.———GOVERNMENT EXPANDS ASYLUM OUTREACH: The Trudeau government is expanding its outreach efforts in the U.S. to send a message that seeking asylum in Canada isn’t a sure bet. Transport Minister Marc Garneau says those thinking about crossing the border into Canada must know there is specific criteria to qualify. There already have been some efforts to reach out to the Haitian community in the U.S. as the vast majority of those who crossed illegally into Quebec this summer have been Haitians. Garneau says that effort will be expanded into other communities.———ORGANIZED LABOUR PUSHES ITS AGENDA AT NAFTA TALKS: The labour movement is trying to ensure its voices are heard at the negotiations on a revamped North American Free Trade Agreement. Union leaders staged a rally Friday as negotiators from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico arrived for a second round of negotiations. They made a number of demands, including a transformation of Mexico’s unionization practices, higher wages in Mexico and an international mechanism to make sure countries respect promises to labour.———CANADIAN IN THIRD ROUND OF US OPEN: An Ontario tennis player has made it to the third round of the U.S. Open after his British opponent retired with an injury. Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., was leading 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 1-0 before Kyle Edmund abandoned the match.———CANADIANS SHELLING OUT MORE AT THE PUMP THIS WEEKEND: The price at the pump is set to soar this weekend after already jumping by nearly 10 cents per litre since hurricane Harvey roared ashore in Texas a week ago. Analysts say the increases will differ greatly by region with prices in Eastern Canada going up by up to nine cents a litre while Western Canadian prices will be more or less stable.———PM SAYS CANADIANS MUST FIGHT ISLAMOPHOBIA: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is calling on Canadians to stand together against Islamophobia. He made the comments in Saskatoon on Friday at an event recognizing the beginning of Eid al-Adha, a Muslim holiday. Trudeau says Canadians must be there for each other and stand up for each other.———BC WILDFIRES WON’T BE OUT UNTIL NEXT YEAR: A municipal leader at the heart of British Columbia’s wildfire zone says the fires raging in the central Interior likely won’t be extinguished until 2018. Cariboo Regional District chairman Al Richmond says hot spots from many of the largest fires likely won’t be doused until the spring. The wildfires have chewed through more than 10,600 square kilometres of woodland this summer.———CANADIAN TROOPS KEEPING AN EYE ON RUSSIAN MILITARY EXERCISE: The Russian bear will be on the prowl this month and Canadian troops in Latvia are feeling the tension in the region. Russia is holding its largest military exercise since the end of the Cold War. The Zapad exercise is set to start Sept. 14 and is also the first of its kind since NATO decided to send troops to eastern Europe to deter further Russian aggression. Canada is leading one of those multinational brigades, with 450 troops based in Latvia. The exercise has already caused jitters in eastern Europe with Poland announcing it will close the airspace on its border with Belarus — which is taking part in Zapad.———RUSSIAN DIPLOMATS IN SAN FRANCISCO APPARENTLY BURN DOCUMENTS: Black smoke was seen coming out of the Russian consulate in San Francisco on Friday, a day after the Trump administration ordered its closure amid escalating tensions between the two countries. San Francisco fire department officials said they received a call about the smoke, but crews who responded determined smoke was coming from a fireplace. The deadline for the consulate to close is Saturday.———HARVEY RELIEF HEADING TO CONGRESS: An initial $5.9 billion down payment in Harvey recovery aid will head for congressional passage as early as next week, and it looks likely to be the vehicle to increase the federal debt limit to stave off default. The Harvey proposal is a first instalment to keep recovery efforts adequately funded. Republican leaders aim to use the popular vote on the Harvey money to sweeten the contentious but necessary vote to increase the nation’s debt limit.———last_img read more

Google benefiting Chinese military US officials

first_imgWashington: Top Pentagon officials have slammed Google, saying its work with China is “indirectly benefiting” the military in that country. In a report published in The Hill on Thursday, senior defence officials blamed the tech giant of favouring China. “The work that Google is doing in China is indirectly benefiting the Chinese military,” General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee. Also Read – Spotify rolls out Siri support, new Apple TV app “We watch with great concern when industry partners work in China knowing there is that indirect benefit,” Dunford said. “And frankly, ‘indirect’ may not be a full characterisation of the way it really is, it’s more of a direct benefit to the Chinese military,” he added. According to CNBC, Dunforda¿s comments come “in the wake of the tech giants’ decision not to pursue some of the Pentagon’s lucrative contracts while considering projects in China”. Also Read – New Instagram tool to help users spot phishing emails Acting Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan also blasted Google during the hearing for pulling out of its defence contracts. Last October, facing President Donald Trump administration’s ire over its censored Chine Search engine project, Google CEO Sundar Pichai met Pentagon officials during his trip to Washington and discussed the controversial “Project Maven”. Pichai met “a group of civilian and military leaders mostly from the office of the Under Secretary of Defence for Intelligence the Defence Department directorate that oversees the Artificial Intelligence (AI) drone system known as Project Maven”. After facing backlash over its involvement in the Pentagon project “Maven”, Pichai in June emphasised that the company will not work on technologies that cause or are likely to cause overall harm. About 4,000 Google employees had signed a petition demanding “a clear policy stating that neither Google nor its contractors will ever build warfare technology”. Following the anger, Google decided not to renew the project with the US Defence Department after it expires in 2019. US senators were also upset with Google about the tech giant’s reported plan to create a censored Chinese version of its search engine. US Vice President Mike Pence in October called on Google to end its “censored” Chinese Search engine — the “Dragonfly” project. The company later reportedly shut down the project amid widespread criticism.last_img read more

CSK restrict RR to 1517

Jaipur: Chennai Super Kings produced yet another disciplined bowling effort to restrict Rajasthan Royals to a modest 151 for seven in an Indian Premier League encounter here on Thursday. Save Jos Buttler (23 off 10 balls) at the top of the order, none of other Royals batsmen looked the part as CSK skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s immaculate reading of the track once again helped the defending champions. Left-arm spin duo Ravindra Jadeja (2/20 in 4 overs) and Mitchell Santner (1/25 in 4 overs) checked the run-flow as Royals batsmen were always playing a catch-up game. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhEven Imran Tahir (0/28 in 4 overs), who went for a few more runs compared to the other two spinners, ended with decent enough figures. Royals skipper Ajinkya Rahane (14 off 11) failed once again with seamer Deepak Chahar (2/33 in 4 overs) trapping him leg before. Buttler belted Shardul Thakur (2/44 in 4 overs) for a few boundaries before he mistiming one which was easily caught by Ambati Rayudu. Once Buttler was gone, Royals lost the momentum as wickets fell at regular imtervals. Steve Smith (15,22 balls) struggled once again as he slog swept Ravindra Jadeja towards deep mid-wicket only to find Rayudu. Samson also top edged a sweep which was caught by substitute fielder Dhruv Shorey. Rahul Tripathi’s struggles in the middle-order continued while Ben Stokes’ 28 off 26 balls wasn’t good enough. It was Shreyas Gopal, who struck a few meaty blows en route his 19 off 7 balls to take the target past 150 despite the home team playing as many as 42 dot balls. Brief scores: Rajasthan Royals: 151/7 (Ben Stokes 28, Shreyas Gopal 19 not out; Ravindra Jadeja 2/20, Deepak Chahar 2/33) vs Chennai Super Kings. read more

Security Council approves international security force for Kabul and nearby areas

Voting unanimously, the Council adopted a resolution calling on States to contribute personnel, equipment and other resources to the new Force to be established for a 6-month period. The 15-member body called on all neighbouring countries and other UN Member States to provide the Force with the needed assistance, including “overflight clearance and transit.” The resolution, passed under Chapter VII of the UN Charter that provides for the use of force, also authorized participating countries to “take all necessary measures” in carrying out their responsibilities. The text notes that in implementing its mandate, the Force will work in close consultation with the Afghan Interim Authority. The Council also called on all Afghans to cooperate with the Force and relevant international organizations, and welcomed the commitment of the parties to the Bonn Agreement – which paved the way for the Interim Authority – to “do all within their means and influence” to ensure the safety, security and freedom of movement of all UN and other international personnel in Afghanistan. The resolution urged the parties to make good on their pledge made in Bonn on 5 December to withdraw all military units from Kabul in cooperation with the Force. Member States participating in the Force were called on to help the Interim Authority in the establishment and training of new Afghan security and armed forces. The Council’s authorization of the Force was envisaged in Annex I to the Bonn Agreement, which stipulated that such a force “could, as appropriate, be progressively expanded to other urban centres and other areas.” Under the Bonn Agreement, the political transition to the Interim Authority is set to take place on 22 December. Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative to Afghanistan, Lakhdar Brahimi, currently in Islamabad, will head to Kabul tomorrow to attend the hand-over ceremony on Saturday. read more

UN cultural agency designates additions to World Heritage List

The 21-member World Heritage Committee of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Suzhou, China, has so far added five new addresses to the World Heritage natural sites, bringing the number to 154, and three to the cultural sites, bringing that number to 585.The committee, chaired by Deputy Education Minister and Chairperson of China’s UNESCO National Commission Zhang Xinsheng, has been considering 48 nominations during its 28th session.The cultural sites added so far include a 17-metre-high mud pyramid built in 1495 in what is now Mali. It marks the grave of Emperor Askia Mohamed of Songhai, the ruler who made Islam the religion of his West African Sahelian territory. The mud tower-houses, or takienta, of the Batammariba in Koutammakou, northeastern Togo, and neighbouring Benin were also new to the list.The Portuguese 16th-century colonial city of Mazagan, renamed El Jadida in Morocco, was listed as an early example of European Renaissance military design.The Ilulissat Icefjord in Greenland, administered by Denmark, and the 2.5 million-hectare Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra, Indonesia, with its 10,000 plant species, 580 kinds of birds and 37 kinds of mammals, were added to the list of natural sites.In the Russian Federation, the committee chose the Wrangel Island Reserve for its extraordinary number of Pacific walruses and closely spaced polar bear dens. The area of the high, conical volcanoes called the Pitons on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia and the unique landscape of the Cape Floral Region in South Africa also joined the nature list. read more

Trump budget timeline mixes deadlines uncertainty

by The Associated Press Posted Mar 13, 2017 6:59 am MDT Last Updated Mar 13, 2017 at 7:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email President Donald Trump’s release of a spending blueprint for the upcoming budget year will set in motion a debate that’s full of uncertainty — and the potential for gridlock, even a government shutdown.There’s also a more immediate quandary: What to do about the current budget year?None of the 12 annual appropriations bills has been enacted and a temporary funding measure expires next month. Trump’s signature is needed on what promises to be an omnibus spending bill with a $1 trillion-plus price tag. The path toward passage may be rocky, given the political land mines such as the southern border wall and a budget-busting supplemental Pentagon request.Some key dates in the process:—Early March: With Wednesday’s deadline to increase the government’s borrowing authority looming, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he would use bookkeeping measures to avert a first-ever government default on U.S. obligations such as Social Security benefits and interest payments. Such “extraordinary measures” will buy time until the fall for lawmakers to approve legislation increasing the debt limit.—Thursday: Trump submits a budget covering only discretionary spending. That’s the $1 trillion-plus portion of the $4 trillion federal budget that passes through Congress each year. Trump’s plan would boost the Pentagon’s budget by $54 billion — about 10 per cent — while cutting domestic programs and foreign aid by an equal amount.—April 28: A temporary, government-wide funding bill expires. Unless Congress passes and Trump signs a catchall spending bill or another extension, the government would partially shut down. Democratic votes are needed to pass the bill through the Senate, but any measure that satisfies Democrats is sure to alienate tea party Republicans.—May: Trump reveals the remainder of his budget, including tax proposals, plans for curbing mandatory spending, economic projections — and large deficits. Around the same time, Congress is likely to work on its annual budget resolution, which promises to be very difficult but is a precursor to Trump’s promise to overhaul tax laws.—Summer-Fall: The Republican-run Congress tries to advance spending bills for the 2018 budget year, which begins Oct. 1. Meeting that deadline is highly unlikely, but at some point, budget talks probably will begin — assuming, as many do, that the regular process will have broken down.

How A Data Scientist Whod Never Heard Of Basketball Mastered March Madness

A 13-year-old in Illinois. A 47-year-old English woman. A 70-year-old Vegas oddsmaker. At first blush, there isn’t much linking them. But last year, all three were among the most successful March Madness prognosticators. That’s where the similarities end.With methods ranging from gut instinct to computational learning theory, these three characters demonstrate just how wide and varied the spectrum of strategies can be. But which strategy will you employ for your own bracket? Watch this video collaboration between FiveThirtyEight and Fictionless and decide for yourself.

Marathons are bad for your health scientists warn runners

first_imgKeen runners are currently gearing up for the London MarathonCredit:NIKLAS HALLE’N/AFP Prof Parikh added: “We need to investigate this further. “Research has shown there are also changes in heart function associated with marathon running.”Our study adds to the story – even the kidney responds to marathon-related stress.” London Marathon Previous research has shown that engaging in unusually vigorous activities – such as military training – in warm climates can damage the kidneys, but little is known about the effects of marathon running. A team of researchers led by Professor Chirag Parikh, of Yale University in the US, studied a small group of participants in the 2015 Hartford Marathon.They collected blood and urine samples before and after the event. They analysed a variety of markers of kidney injury, including serum creatinine levels, kidney cells on microscopy, and proteins in urine. Marathons can be bad for your health, scientists have warned after a study found 80 per cent of competitors suffer kidney injury because of dehydration.Researchers said that although the kidneys of the participants in the 26.2 mile race fully recovered within two days, their findings raise questions concerning the potential long-term impact at a time when marathons are increasing in popularity. The findings were published by the American Journal of Kidney Diseases, as thousands of people prepare for next month’s London Marathon.center_img While the measured kidney injury resolved within two days of running the marathon, the researchers said the study still raises questions about the effects of repeated strenuous activity over time, especially in warm climates.

The researchers found that 82 per cent of the runners that were studied showed Stage 1 Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) soon after the race. AKI is a condition in which the kidneys fail to filter waste from the blood.Prof Parikh said: “The kidney responds to the physical stress of marathon running as if it’s injured, in a way that’s similar to what happens in hospitalised patients when the kidney is affected by medical and surgical complications.”The researchers stated that potential causes of the marathon-related kidney damage could be the sustained rise in core body temperature, dehydration, or decreased blood flow to the kidneys that occur during a marathon.last_img read more

Plastic foam used by council to fill in cliff is putting seals

“Unfortunately, severe weather conditions over the weekend had caused damage to this initial work and resulted in some of the materials used being blown across the island. Council officers and the contractors were back on-site on Monday to assess the damage and clean up the debris. The clean up has now taken place and the essential remedial works are continuing.“We appreciate the concern shown by visitors to Hilbre over the weekend and would like to reassure everyone that we absolutely share their desire to see the islands’ distinct qualities and beauty maintained to the highest possible standard while this work is taking place and long into the future.” She said the council should have used a material which would be safe for wildlife if broken by wind and sea, adding: “Our elements are pretty fierce at times – the sea can even break up concrete.”Chris Cureton, who volunteers for British Divers Marine Life Rescue in the area and looks after the local seal colony, was distressed to see the plastic-strewn area.He said:  “The council is repairing cliff erosion on Hilbre island with expanding foam! Unbelievable! Due to bad weather plastic is being washed directly into sea! This is the seal haul out zone! Crazy!” @WirralCouncil strikes again. Didnt learn a thing from the backlash over last weeks outrageous decisions. This time they filled an unstable cave on Hilbre island with polyurethane foam.

Goldcorp narrows down finalists for DisruptMining PDAC showdown

first_imgGoldcorp has announced the three finalists selected to pitch to a panel of judges at the #DisruptMining 2019 live finale taking place around the PDAC event in Toronto, next month.The trio includes companies looking at a new drilling approach that can unlock the value in narrow vein deposits; a unique way of training artificial intelligence (AI) to autonomously operate a mineral processing facility; and an Internet of Things application that increases the intelligence of belt conveyors used to transport material at mine sites, according to Goldcorp.Todd White, Goldcorp Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of Operations, said: “#DisruptMining continues to represent the best of innovation in the mining industry. These finalists demonstrate break-through thinking and help build digital momentum in mining. The industry needs to help accelerate the development of these kinds of technologies.”After a technical review by a group from the University of British Columbia, shortlisted submissions were reviewed by senior Goldcorp representatives to determine semi-finalists and finalists for #DisruptMining, Goldcorp said. The three finalists pitching their disruptive technology to the panel of judges are:Anaconda Mining, a TSX-listed gold mining company operating in Atlantic Canada, has developed an innovative, two-stage drilling method that enables economic mining of narrow-vein deposits, according to Goldcorp. The technology, known as Sustainable Mining by Drilling (SMD), was developed in collaboration with Memorial University of Newfoundland. Goldcorp said: “SMD has the potential to unlock value in existing deposits that were previously thought to be uneconomic to mine using traditional underground or surface mining methods. The developers also expect this technology could extend the life of current operations by allowing safe excavation to occur beyond the limits of current designs”;ANDRITZ, a leading supplier of machines and automation solutions worldwide, has developed a unique and continuous way of training artificial intelligence to operate a mineral processing facility using ANDRITZ’s digital twin, Goldcorp said. “The AI is trained to respond to a variety of situations, making it capable of adapting to changing inputs and improving upset recovery time,” Goldcorp said. The trained AI’s ability to quickly process information and recommend data-driven solutions will allow for the improvement of the operation, such as start-up and shutdown, and assist operators to achieve plant-wide optimisation, and;Voith Turbo, a division of Voith GmbH & Co KGaA, whose IoT application BeltGenius (pictured) creates a digital twin of belt conveyors which provides real-time insight into the behaviour of the operation. “Resulting from a constant learning system, this information is used to identify potential risks and inefficiencies, allowing for greater uptime, more efficient energy use, predictive maintenance and optimisation of weight and speed,” Goldcorp said. With BeltGenius, mine sites can operate their belt conveyors with greater control and consistency, increasing their savings on repairs and material transportation costs while reducing the environmental impact of traditional haul trucks.Deciding the fate of the three finalists will be Ian Telfer, Chair of Goldcorp; Katie Valentine, Partner at KPMG Australia and Global Head of Mining Consulting; Sue Paish, CEO of Canada’s Digital Technology Supercluster; Jacob Yeung, University of British Columbia student and #DisruptMining UBC Captain; and returning #DisruptMining judge Wal van Lierop, President & CEO, Chrysalix Venture Capital.Co-hosted by KPMG, the #DisruptMining live finale will take place on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at the Rebel Entertainment Complex in Toronto during the PDAC convention. Each finalist will present a short pitch video followed by a Q&A with the judges, in front of a live audience of nearly 600 people, demonstrating how their concept or technology has the potential to #DisruptMining.In addition to finalists, six semi-finalists will showcase their technologies at the #DisruptMining Innovation Expo. The Expo will take place on Sunday March 3, 2019, at the Rebel Entertainment Complex in Toronto.last_img read more

Youth dies after police quizzing

first_imgAshraf Ali who died after police interrogation. A team of Detective Branch police detained van driver Ashraf Ali,42, from Gazipur on 4 May and after a one-day ‘interrogation’, he died in Dhaka Medical College Hospital on 6 May.Ashraf was in a perfect health prior to his interrogation at the Minto Road DB office in Dhaka, but fell seriously ill on 6 May. He died within 38 hours of being detained and after three hours of being taken to hospital.His relatives claimed Ashraf died due to DB police torture. Ashraf had bruises all over his body.According to the hospital authorities, the DB officers did not want to provide any information about his identity or where he had been arrested. He had been admitted there under a false name, Aslam. The police asked the physician to issue a death certificate indicating he died of natural causes. But there were bruises all over the dead body so the certificate wasn’t issued.According to Prothom Alo investigations, Ashraf was from the village Dahan in Charpak of Madarganj upazila, Jamalpur. He had six brothers and a sister. Ashraf had married thrice and lived with his third wife in Poshchim Dogri of Mirzapur, Gazipur.The van he drove belonged to the company Decor Weight Processing Limited. The DB police picked him up along with his wife Ripa and their two children on 4 May midnight.Ashraf’s relatives said he served as a source in the Ashulia area for the DB before.Asked about Ashraf’s sudden sickness in custody, the Dhaka metropolitan DB joint commissioner Abdul Baten said, Ashraf had demanded ransom of a hundred thousand taka from the family of Niamul, a Qatar migrant who was missing. He said the police were investigating Ashraf’s mobile phone records and called him with his wife for interrogation. But, Ashraf felt ill. Ashraf’s wife said he was a hernia patient. They took him to the hospital and he died there.About the bruises, Abdul Baten said, “Just because you claim there are bruises, doesn’t make that true. The autopsy has to be done and then it will be revealed what actually happened.”When asked why his name had been filed as ‘Aslam’, Baten said, “You find out his real name on your own.”The Dhaka Metropolitan additional deputy commissioner Mahmud Naser had been investigating the missing case of Niamul. When contacted over phone, he declined to talk on the matter.The DB officials handed over Ashraf’s body to his brother Abdur Rashid. Abdur Rashid said, “His whole body is covered in bruises. No one could survive such torture.”Ashraf was fineAshraf moved to Poshchim Dogri in Gazipur on 22 April. This reporter talked to the owner of the house where he stayed and also to other tenants there on 9 May. The landlord Abdul Halim said about 15 to 20 DB officials came in two vehicles around 1:00 am 4 May. They searched every tenant’s room. Then they went to Ashraf’s room and blindfolded him and Ripa. They beat up Ashraf and took him away. He had walked normally to the vehicle.Ashraf’s office was near his house. The company director Zahirul Islam said, Ashraf had been working for them since February. He hadn’t ever taken leave nor had he complained of being unwell.Ashraf’s brother Abdur Rashid said they didn’t know anything about any sickness.Autopsy lacks mention of bruisesThe autopsy report does not match the description given by Ashraf’s brother and his second wife, Nasima. They said there were blood clots from both of his knees to his heels and other bruises too.However, the autopsy report submitted by Shahbagh police station sub-inspector Harichand Hajra and Mosharraf Hossain only mentioned “slight darkish patches on both legs.” The autopsy had been carried out by a three-member medical board headed by the forensic department head Sohel Mahmud at the DMCH morgue on 7 May. Sohel Mahmud said, the dead body had bruises on both legs and his intestines were twisted. He added, the actual cause of death would be discerned once the viscera report was done.DB escorts victim’s family and vehicle with dead bodyTwo of Ashraf’s wives and his elder brother Abdur Rashid came to DMCH from Ashulia on 7 May morning. The DB team had been awaiting them. They took them by microbus to the Minto Road office of DB.Abdur Rashid said, senior officials of DB greeted them and offered them refreshments. Around 2:00pm Rashid and Ashraf’s father-in-law were taken to DMCH in a DB vehicle.They stayed with the DB members in the vehicle till 8:00 pm. Rashid said, the law enforcers made him sign a written document and also a blank sheet of paper, and then handed over the dead body.He said, the DB men then rented a microbus for Tk 6000 and an ambulance for Tk 7500. Then they ordered them to get into the microbus and to take the dead body home by the ambulance.The DB police followed them in a different vehicle up till the Gazipur intersection, Rashid said.The missing Qatar migrantNiamul’s brother, Nazmul Hossain, filed a general diary with the Shah Ali police station of Dhaka on 26 April alleging that his brother was missing.Shah Ali police station SI Anuj Kumar Sarkar, who had been investigating the matter, said according to the report, Niamul went to see his cousin in Mirpur-1. Later, he went to meet a friend around 11:00 am on 25 April. He had been missing since then.Anuj Kumar said, the DB additional deputy commissioner Mahmud Naser asked him for information on Niamul including his mobile phone call list. He did not conduct any further investigation.After Ashraf’s death, Nazmul Hossain filed a case on 6 May with Shah Ali police station, alleging Niamul had been kidnapped. The officer-in-charge Mohammad Anwar Hossain said no one had been named in the case. It had only been stated that one million taka ransom had been demanded by the kidnapper.Ashraf’s crimeNazmul Hossain said, Ashraf actually didn’t know anything about the kidnapping of his brother.He said, Ashraf only claimed over phone that he knew Niamul’s whereabouts, but that was a bluff. Ashraf also demanded ransom money.Ashraf’s father-in-law did not want to comment on Ashraf’s detention, nor did he allow this reporter to talk to his daughter.Ashraf’s family cannot accept his unnatural death. His second wife Nasima said, if he had committed crime, then he should have been prosecuted. But, without any trial, the DB police beat him to death, she said.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Nusrat Nowrin.last_img read more

Bungies fourgame Destiny series revealed

first_imgBungie wasn’t quite ready to reveal this yet, but details of their next project have been leaked. It’s called Destiny, and it’s a series coming out in fall 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 on both Xbox 360 and PS3, Microsoft’s and Sony’s next-gen consoles, and of course, PC. To fill the gaps in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020, downloadable expansions, known as Comet for now, are planned to be released, too.So what is Destiny? Well, Bungie aims to create a huge mythical universe, one that your “inner-seven-year-old” would enjoy – so it’s likely a less mature outing than Halo. The story starts seven hundred years in the future on Earth when a huge alien ship mysteriously comes out of nowhere and decides to float above Earth like a second moon. The people of Earth believe it to be their protector. Then, from the edge of the universe, alien monsters appear with the intent of taking Earth and “the Last City”. The player(s) are young knights who must defend what is left of humanity and find out where these creatures came from.It’s not clear what genre this series aims to be just yet, but Bungie makes it sound like a MMO as the leaked document describes the game as “fun and accessible to all”. The gameplay is described as “social” and offers a new world to explore with friends. It also says it wants to be as deep and relatable as the Star Wars universe.Bungie did say in 2011 that their next game would be an MMO, but later they said that was a joke. It was argued that Destiny could be a codename for the project, but there’s a logo for Destiny and a URL for it has also been registered (which is password protected at this time) so it seems to be the game’s final name.Bungie isn’t ready to reveal the full details of Destiny yet and simply recommends you keep watching the official site for further details as they’ll be ready to show you what they’ve been doing “soon.”The story for Destiny sounds a bit cliche so far, but the concept art looks great. PlayStation fans will definitely be rejoicing that a Bungie game is finally coming to their system. We’ll be able to judge this project further when the gameplay style is detailed, which is likely to happen sooner rather than later.More at IGNlast_img read more

Researchers identify sterility genes in hybrid rice

first_imgThey identified three genes that contribute to the sterility in a “killer-protector” system that determines whether or not spores are formed. They found that Open Reading Frame (ORF) 5+ (killer) produces a protein that ORF 4+ influences to cause endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in the spore-producing cells, while a third gene, ORF 3+ (protector), produces a protein in response to the stress that counteracts it and protects the ER. The japonica variety has a different form of the gene, ORF 3-, which means that the hybrids often carry a muted ORF gene that is unable to protect against the hybrid’s more potent form of the killer ORF 5+, often resulting in premature death at the embryo-sac stage in the hybrid.The researchers explained in their paper in Science that a potent combination of ORF 4+ and ORF 5+ would allow genetic differentiation of the two subspecies and prevent genes being passed on, while a potent ORF 3+ and weaker combinations of the killer genes would allow hybrids to be fertile and genes to flow to the next generation.The findings add to the understanding of hybrid sterility, a process that restricts the flow of genes between populations, lead author Qifa Zhang said. He added that understanding the cause of the sterility may allow scientists to overcome it, and this could help in the development of more desirable and higher-yielding cultivated rice crops. Journal information: Science This image shows heterosis and sterility of hybrid between indica and japonica subspecies in rice. Credit: Jiangyi Yang and Qifa Zhang (—Hybrids of many plant and animal species and subspecies are sterile, and a group of researchers in China have now identified the genes that operate to make crossbred rice sterile. This image shows heterosis and sterility of hybrid between indica and japonica subspecies. Credit: Qifa Zhang The scientists, from the National Centre of Plant Gene Research at Huazhong Agricultural University in Wuhan and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, examined two subspecies of the cultivated rice (Oryza sativa L.), japonica and indica, and identified three genes that act together to regulate fertility in these hybrids. Japonica is a common variety of sticky short-grain rice also known as Japanese rice, sinica or sushi rice, and indica is a non-sticky long-grain rice. Both varieties are thought to have been first domesticated in Central China around eight thousand years ago, and from there they spread throughout Asia. When crossbred the hybrids tend to be more vigorous than the parent subspecies and can yield significantly larger crops of rice.The researchers used techniques such as gene sequencing and genotyping to analyze the genetics of hybrid indica-japonica rice in the region of a specific locus (S5) that had previously been shown to be involved in sterility in hybrids. They then compared their findings with genes in that region in other rice varieties, including Nanjing 11 (a subspecies of indica), Balilla (subspecies of japonica), and varieties producing fertile crossbred offspring: Dular and 02428. © 2012 Phys.orgcenter_img Explore further More information: A Killer-Protector System Regulates Both Hybrid Sterility and Segregation Distortion in Rice, Science, 14 September 2012: Vol. 337 no. 6100 pp. 1336-1340. DOI: 10.1126/science.1223702ABSTRACTHybrid sterility is a major form of postzygotic reproductive isolation that restricts gene flow between populations. Cultivated rice (Oryza sativa L.) consists of two subspecies, indica and japonica; inter-subspecific hybrids are usually sterile. We show that a killer-protector system at the S5 locus encoded by three tightly linked genes [Open Reading Frame 3 (ORF3) to ORF5] regulates fertility in indica-japonica hybrids. During female sporogenesis, the action of ORF5+ (killer) and ORF4+ (partner) causes endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. ORF3+ (protector) prevents ER stress and produces normal gametes, but ORF3– cannot prevent ER stress, resulting in premature programmed cell death and leads to embryo-sac abortion. Preferential transmission of ORF3+ gametes results in segregation distortion in the progeny. These results add to our understanding of differences between indica and japonica rice and may aid in rice genetic improvement.

US expats commemorate victims of 911

first_imgAlthough rain delayed a ceremony scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, a small group of expats and U.S. veterans gathered at the Sept. 11 Memorial Sculpture in September 11 Park, at the Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center in Sabana Norte, in northwestern San José.U.S. veteran John DiScipio said the memorial was “for all the victims who passed away on 9/11 and in other terrorist acts across the world.”The monument designed and constructed by U.S. artist Roland Hockett in 2004 was rededicated last year, after the artist visited Costa Rica to repair some damages at the structure.
