Darjeeling observes 60th Tibetan Womens National Uprising Day

first_imgDarjeeling: The Tibetan Women’s National Uprising Day was commemorated on Tuesday in Darjeeling, along with the rest of the globe. The Tibetan Women’s Association (TWA) has requested United Nations and world community intervention in the Tibetan issue.In 1959 on March 10, thousands of Tibetans had converged on the streets of Lhasa, the Tibetan Capital, as a mark of protest against the Chinese occupation. It marked the beginning of the Lhasa Uprising. On March 12, the Tibetan women had led a peaceful demonstration. The Chinese had quelled the uprising with brutal force, resulting in the death of thousands.

March 12, 1959 marked the first active, women-led non-violent protest against Chinese occupation of Tibet that led to the foundation for a peaceful resistance. The women of Tibet have stood against the most repressive regime with courage and determination and continue to do so,” stated Choden, the president of the Darjeeling chapter of the TWA. A TWA release alleged that the Communist Chinese leaders are determined to eradicate the Tibetan race. “China persistently and deliberately continues to violate human rights in Tibet. They have denied the Tibetans right to self-determination,” stated the release. A programme was held at Darjeeling Chowrasta to commemorate the day. Prayers were offered and speeches reminiscing the sacrifices by the valiant men and women of Tibet were delivered. A peace rally was also held.last_img read more

Cogeco Cable to buy Internet infrastructure company Peer 1 Network for 526M

MONTREAL – Cogeco Cable announced plans Friday for its second major acquisition since the summer, a friendly $526-million deal to buy Canadian Internet infrastructure provider Peer 1 Network Enterprises.The Montreal-based cable company is offering $3.85 in cash per share — 90 cents per share above Peer 1’s closing price of $2.95 Thursday on the Toronto Stock Exchange and a 32 per cent premium on the average share price over 20 days.Peer 1 (TSX:PIX) shares shot up nearly 30 per cent, or 88 cents, to $3.83 in midday trading Friday, while Cogeco Cable (TSX:CCA) stock slid $1.76, or 4.3 per cent, to $39.21.The offer values Peer 1 Network’s equity at $526 million on a fully diluted basis, while Cogeco says Peer 1 has an enterprise value of $635 million, after including other factors.“There are compelling strategic, operational and financial reasons for this transaction,” Cogeco chief executive Louis Audet told a conference call with analysts.Among other things it increases the scale of Cogeco’s existing large business enterprise business into the small- and medium-sized market which has “significant growth prospects.”“It (also) enlarges our footprint and builds on what we had already put together and it gives us access to a state of the art data centre platform across North America and starting in Europe,” he added.Maher Yaghi of Desjardins Capital Markets said the transaction will increase Cogeco’s debt, making it less likely that its dividend will be increased in the short to medium term.“Overall, we see the strategic rationale in acquiring PEER 1, as it should give Cogeco Cable an additional platform for growth in the lucrative SMB market,” he wrote in a report.He said the acquisition will also enhance the company’s capabilities and potentially allow for revenue synergies, but not likely additional profits in the medium term.Cogeco attempted unsuccessfully to expand into Europe several years ago but had to pull out after major losses with an acquisition in Portugal.In July, Cogeco Cable Inc., Canada’s fourth-largest cable TV company with operations in Quebec and southern Ontario, entered the U.S. market with a US$1.36-billion deal to buy regional cable company Atlantic Broadband.Atlantic Broadband, headquartered in Quincy, Mass., is the 12th largest cable television system operator in the United States serving customers in western Pennsylvania, southern Florida, Maryland, Delaware and South Carolina.The U.S. deal was Cogeco’s first big acquisition since its failed venture into Portugal.Audet described Peer 1 is a “leading business and technology service company with talented and committed employees and long-term customer relationships.”And he told analysts that the company’s management team would be joining Cogeco.“Operationally, we will be putting together the Cogeco data services and Peer 1 and we will be benefiting from significant experience in data centre design, building and management, which Peer 1 has perfected.”PEER 1, whose headquarters and primary network centres are in Vancouver, is an Internet infrastructure provider, specializing in managed hosting, dedicated servers, cloud services and colocation.It earned $50 million in EBITDA on $168 million of revenues in fiscal 2013. About 78 per cent of its revenues are in hosting services, 16 per cent in colocation and six per cent in bandwidth.“The acquisition of PEER 1 and combining it with Cogeco Cable’s existing data centre capabilities, will increase the scale and scope by adding the capability to service an additional 10,000 businesses worldwide through 19 data centres and 21 points-of-presence across North America and Europe,” Cogeco said in a release.Peer 1’s board of directors is supporting Cogeco’s offer, subject to their right to consider and accept superior proposals. Cogeco will have a five-day right to match a superior proposal and, under some circumstances, will receive a $18.5-million termination fee if the deal isn’t completed.It needs to secure the support of two-thirds of Peer 1 shareholders and has locked up the backing from 62 per cent.Cogeco said PEER 1’s board received an opinion from RBC Capital Markets that described the offer as fair from a financial point of view.

In Egypt Ban calls on Arab leaders to strengthen bonds for regions

“Today, war and violence in the region, reprehensible acts of terrorism and the seemingly endless Israeli occupation of Palestine, are causing enormous suffering,” said Mr. Ban in remarks to the League of Arab States Summit, taking place in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt, stressing that the impact of all these threats transcends the Arab world and poses “a direct challenge to international peace and security.” “To counter these trends, we must address the root causes that fuel extremism and violence. Even when security measures are needed, reliance on military approaches alone will not solve these problems,” the UN chief declared, adding that security responses must respect human rights. Indeed, fighting extremism while committing abuses is not only wrong, it is counter-productive, he continued, noting that whenever this has been tried, the appeal for extremism actually increases. Without good governance, the rule of law, respect for women’s rights and all human rights, long-term political stability will remain a mirage. Nowhere are the problems of governance and radicalism more pressing than in Syria. The Syrian people have now entered the fifth year of a war that has ripped their country to shreds, said Mr. Ban. “Speaking today to the distinguished leadership of the Arab world, I confess to you my anger and my shame. Anger at observing the Syrian Government, extremist and terrorist groups and terrorists relentlessly destroy their country,” the Secretary-General said, and that he felt shame at sharing in the collective failure of international and regional communities to decisively act to “stop the carnage that has afflicted the Arab brothers and sisters of Syria.” “The crisis risks spreading as fast as our credibility risks shrinking. The Syrian people are being betrayed and this cannot continue,” he said, telling the Summit that he is instructing his Special Envoy, Staffan de Mistura, to intensify UN-backed political efforts and to consult widely with Security Council members as well as throughout the region, including with the Syrian parties themselves. Specifically, he and his team will work to operationalize and flesh out elements in the Geneva communiqué. Following this Summit, Mr. Ban said that will head to the Third International Humanitarian Pledging Conference for Syria and he thanked the Amir of Kuwait for convening that vital gathering. “I also thank you for your generous contributions. I urge you to do even more to respond to the suffering and misery resulting from the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today.” He went on to note that Lebanon remains unique in the face of the continuing impact of the Syrian conflict, including the growing threat by Da’esh (the Arab acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL) and others, as it stands as an example of co-existence. “I urge Lebanese political leaders to overcome their political differences and elect a President to fill the leadership vacuum which has stretched for over a year.” Turning next to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he said seven months after the end of yet another war with Israel, Gaza remains a tinderbox – and the situation is getting worse by the day. “Neither blockade nor military action has made either side safer. I call on donors to make good on the pledges they made in Cairo last October. Help bring Gaza back to life.” The Arab-Israeli peace process is further threatened by calls to discard or undermine the two-state solution endorsed by the international community and outlined in the visionary Arab Peace Initiative adopted at the Arab League’s 2002 Summit. “Once again, I urge Israel to end what is now nearly half a century of occupation. I urge the Palestinians to overcome their divisions. And I call upon the friends and supporters of both to push for a just and lasting solution based on international law,” the Secretary-General said. As for the “unraveling” situation in Yemen and the tremendous toll it is taking on an already suffering population, the UN chief said that earlier in the programme he had listened very carefully to the statements by King Salman of Saudi Arabia and President Hadi of Yemen. “I share those deep concerns. I have repeatedly condemned the attempts by the Houthis and former President Saleh to undermine political agreements by military force. I take note that military action has been undertaken at the request of Yemen’s sovereign and legitimate leader, President Hadi” the Secretary-General said, also recalling the recent Presidential Statement adopted by the Security Council that encourages Yemenis to return as quickly as possible to an inclusive political process, conducted in good faith. Negotiations facilitated by UN Special Envoy Jamal Benomar, as endorsed by the Security Council, remain the only chance to prevent a long drawn out conflict. “It is my fervent hope that at this League of Arab States summit, Arab leaders will lay-down clear guidelines to peacefully resolve the crisis in Yemen,” he added. Looking further to the west, Mr. Ban said it is crucial that the international community continue to encourage dialogue among the Libyan people. UN-facilitated talks between Libyan actors are continuing along multiple tracks, facilitated by UN Special Representative Bernardino Leon. The preservation of Libya’s unity and territorial integrity is essential. “In Iraq, I encourage leaders to continue and deepen national reconciliation efforts. I appreciate the League’s support to the people and Government of Iraq in their fight against Daesh. This support also benefits regional stability.” As for Somalia, the UN chief urged all partners to fully support the political progress in the country, while stepping up efforts to stabilize the areas recovered from Al-Shabaab control. On Sudan, he said that national dialogue is also critical and he urged that the process take place in a credible and conducive environment. “The Doha Document for Peace in Darfur provides a good framework to address the root causes of the conflict. Implementation efforts must continue.” In closing, The Secretary-General said he is pleased by the ever-strengthening cooperation between the UN and the League of Arab States. “This must be a year of global action for sustainable development and dignity for all. We will reach the target date of the Millennium Development Goals and have the chance to adopt a new generation of sustainable development goals in September and a meaningful, global climate agreement in December in Paris.” He also noted that next month, he and the President of the UN General Assembly would bring together leaders from different faith communities to a special event at the United Nations to promote mutual understanding and reconciliation. Further, the UN Counter-Terrorism Center will submit to the General Assembly in September a comprehensive plan to address extremism and terrorism, and M.r Ban thanked King Salman of Saudi Arabia for his generous support for this initiative. “As we advance on the post-2015 development agenda, and work for peaceful resolutions to conflict,” said the Secretary-General. read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse rallies to take down Air Force 109

hat perhaps was expected to be an easy win for the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team Saturday might have proved more challenging than originally thought. The Buckeyes (9-3, 4-2) had to overcome a halftime deficit to earn a 10-9 victory at Air Force Saturday, which stumbled into the contest with a 1-4 Eastern College Athletic Conference record. Now on a three-game winning streak, OSU has secured a playoff spot by guaranteeing at least a top-four finish in the ECAC. The Buckeyes are tied for third in the ECAC standings heading into their regular season finale Saturday. No matter what happens during the final weekend of the season, OSU will be joined by Loyola (Md.), Denver and Fairfield in the conference tournament, since Fairfield clinched its playoff spot Saturday with a 10-9 overtime victory at Denver. OSU jumped out to an early 2-0 lead Saturday against Air Force (6-7, 1-5), but let the Falcons climb their way back into the game, finishing the first quarter tied at four. The Falcons, though, took a one-point lead into halftime, 7-6, before conceding three straight goals in the third quarter and falling behind for good. Co-captain and senior attacker Logan Schuss continued his run of good form, scoring four goals for the Buckeyes, including the series of three in the third quarter, and added one assist. It was his third consecutive game where he scored at least five points, bringing his career total moves to 216, 11 back of second place on the Buckeyes’ all-time points list. Co-captain and senior midfielder Dominique Alexander added a career-high five points, including two goals, and senior midfielder Trey Wilkes won 15 of 21 faceoffs. Having missed the last two games due to injury, junior goalkeeper Greg Dutton made his return for OSU in outstanding fashion on Saturday with a career-high 15 saves against the Falcons. The losses to Denver and Loyola earlier in the year mean that the Buckeyes will finish third in the ECAC with a win over Fairfield Saturday but will drop to fourth with a loss. The Buckeyes are set to close the regular season and celebrate their Senior Day at home against Fairfield on Saturday at 1 p.m. read more

Listen Chance The Rapper Returns With Four New Surprise Songs

first_imgNews Facebook After teasing new music for weeks, the GRAMMY winner drops a fearless foursome of songs Renée FabianGRAMMYs Jul 19, 2018 – 5:47 pm Chance The Rapper had a surprise for us.

He purchased the Chicago-based new and cultural site Chicagoist from public radio station WYNC who owned a variety of similar local city -ist­ news sites.

Four of a family burnt in AC blast fire

first_imgfireFour members of a family sustained severe burn injuries in a fire originated after the air-conditioner of their flat had exploded in the capital’s Kanthalbagan on Monday.The victims are Moniruzzaman Liton, 42, his wife Maria Ferdous, 27, their daughter Laiva, 9, and their nine-month old son Livan.

Amazon CTO We Still Consider Ourselves a Startup

first_imgJuly 29, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 5 min read Register Now »center_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Amazon’s cloud computing business is growing quietly and quickly. Amazon Web Services, whose high-profile clients include Netflix and Spotify, surged 49 percent last year, drawing $4.6 billion in revenue. By comparison, its North America business grew just 24 percent, year over year. Helping drive this effort is Amazon’s chief technology officer Werner Vogels, a Ph.D in Computer Science and spent nearly fourteen years in academia before joining the tech giant in 2004 as the Director of Systems Research. AWS was one of the first to offer services for small businesses and major enterprises when it launched nearly a decade ago. The cloud market is becoming more competitive, with big names like Google and Microsoft trying to chip away at AWS’s 28 percent market share.We sat down with Vogels to talk about why the cloud is becoming more important and why understanding it is essential for any startup’s future success.  RELATED: By the Numbers: Amazon vs. Alibaba (Infographic)Q: What’s surprised you about how cloud computing has evolved?A: We’re heading into almost the tenth anniversary of the first service that we built. We always knew that it was going to be big – we didn’t know how fast.Q: What’s helping to fuel this shift?A. There is such an abundance of applications being built. That has driven this explosion of new businesses and markets. But also, people start to realize that their competition may be coming from a completely different direction than it was in the past. Take for example, hospitality. Airbnb is a major competitor. [Hundreds of thousands] of people each night book rooms brokered by Airbnb. As such, companies in that industry need to be agile, to be able to react, and not only to the competition that comes into the market but also to the feedback that their customers are giving them. In the past, that would take years to implement.Q: What holds companies back from the cloud?A: This is a radical way of consuming IT.  There are emotional barriers to giving up some level of control over the servers that you are running.Q: What aren’t they seeing?A: It’s very important to realize today that with minimal investment you can start building applications. Five, ten years ago you would need millions [of dollars] in investment. It allows entrepreneurs to truly focus on new products without having to worry about the infrastructure, without having to get additional investment to buy hardware. And if you look at the big household names these days, Airbnb, Spotify, Instagram, Pinterest – all of these are born in the cloud. Without cloud, if you asked them, they would probably say they would not have been able to reach this scale at the speed they did, without it.Q: What will AWS need to be successful going forward?A: At Amazon we have this particular philosophy that we are firmly customer-focused. Our goal is to be the earth’s most customer-centric company. We don’t think we have the monopoly on exactly being able to know what you want. So we work very closely with our customers to very quickly add those updates. Last year we added 516 new major features to our AWS. So, we really thrive by this collaboration with our customers that have no problem giving us feedback. Startups and entrepreneurs have always been very close to our heart. We consider ourselves sometimes still to be a startup.Related: Amazon Rolls Out New Marketplace for StartupsQ: How is the cloud solving everyday problems?A: Most of them are in the concept of the Internet of Things, in daily devices. If you look at the consumer side of it, the more of these devices that can generate data might actually help you very easily improve your life. For example, there is a great little device that you can put on your water meter that can show you where in your home the most water is being used. Or, we all get an electricity bill, but it’s never detailed enough to know whether it was the washing machine or the video recorded or the Xbox that I left on? With simple improvements we could get better insights into how we are actually using our technologies.Q: What could be on the horizon?A. With some new toothbrushes, you can look at the graph on your cellphone and you see how well you brushed. Well, you know what? If the toothbrush would change color while you’re brushing, to give you an indication of how well you’re doing it, we’d actually have an immediate effect. Similarly, if you set yourself a goal for energy usage in your house, if you have to look at a graph on your phone, you probably won’t change your behavior. But if you have a clock on the wall that changes color from green to red if you’re using more energy than you’ve planned, then that actually can change your behavior. There are a lot of things to be done in that world that actually have an impact on our daily lives.This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity and brevity. RELATED: Amazon Is the Latest to Get Approval to Fly Forward last_img read more

Indian heartland votes give BJP boon over Congress

first_img Top Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center Parents, stop beating yourself up NEW DELHI (AP) – India’s main Hindu nationalist party trounced the nationally ruling Congress in four heartland states and knocked them out of the Indian capital in a ballot contest closely watched for clues to next year’s general election.The Bharatiya Janata Party, or BJP, had waged a fierce campaign fronted by its prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, who has charmed businesses but worried critics that his rise could worsen sectarian tensions between India’s majority Hindus and its 138 million Muslims. Congress also lost control of Rajasthan, winning 21 seats to BJP’s 162. In central Chhattisgargh, Congress took 39 seats and the BJP 49, while the BJP retained Madhya Pradesh 165 to 58.The BJP’s Modi, a three-time leader in Gujarat, is credited with turning his western state into an industrial haven. But critics question whether the Hindu nationalist chief can be a truly secular leader over India’s many cultures defined by caste, clan, tribe or religion, including Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism and Buddhism.__Follow Katy Daigle on Twitter at (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories Results released late Sunday showed the BJP besting Congress in northwest Rajasthan, in landlocked Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, and in the state of Delhi encompassing the Indian capital.As the votes were being counted, BJP supporters danced and set off firecrackers outside the party’s New Delhi headquarters, while the area outside Congress headquarters was deserted.Congress spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala called the results disappointing, conceding “we have lost.” Modi offered congratulations to his BJP colleagues by Twitter.The elections were seen as a gauge of voter sentiment in this secular democracy of 1.2 billion, where there are no reliable opinion polls and at least one-fifth of the 800 million-strong national electorate will be youths casting their first general election votes next year.Overall, Congress was seen to lose ground due to a national focus on systematic graft marked by high-level corruption scandals and low-level bribery that is an everyday feature in routine tasks, from getting a marriage license to securing a child’s place in school.Congress _ led by the descendants of India’s first prime minister _ also took a beating over stalled economic reforms and soaring living costs, exacerbated by an economic slowdown from growth averages above 8 percent for five years up to 2011 to below 5 percent today.

Final results gave BJP 31 seats and the debutant party 28, with Congress collecting eight.Hundreds of AAP members danced wildly outside the party’s Delhi office while holding up brooms _ the party’s symbol, alluding to its promise to sweep out corruption.It was a stunning fall for Congress, which took 43 seats in the last Delhi elections.“We accept our defeat, and we will analyze what went wrong,” Dikshit told reporters after resigning.last_img

The LEI increased 0.6 percent in July, reaching 96 for the month. An index score of 100 reflects the economic conditions in 2004. [COLUMN_BREAK]””The improvement in the LEI, and pick up in the six-month growth rate, suggest better economic and job growth in the second half of 2013,”” said Ken Goldstein, a Conference Board economist. “”However, the biggest uncertainties remain the pace of business spending and the impact of slower global growth on U.S. exports,”” he added. The worst-performing indicator in the index was workweek manufacturing, according to Ataman Ozildirim, another economist at The Conference Board. However, overall, the economy is improving, according to the Conference Board. “”The pace of the LEI’s growth over the last six months has nearly doubled, pointing to a gradually strengthening expansion through the end of the year.”” In addition to the LEI, the Conference Board also released the results of its Coincident Economic Index and its Lagging Economic Index. The Coincident Index increased 0.2 percent in July to 106.3, while the Lagging Economic Index declined 0.2 percent. However, despite the Lagging Economic Index’s decline, it held the highest index score–118.2–for the month of July. Sharelast_img read more
