100 years ago airmail took flight

first_imgThis meant two planes for that route, one to provide assistance to the other in the case of a forced landing.In 1926 the company assigned Jean Mermoz to the Casablanca-Dakar airmail link.He became a legend when, following engine failure, he was taken hostage by Moors who freed him after receiving a ransom several days later.Another legend of international postal aviation was French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery, who wrote his first novel “Courrier sud” (Southern Mail) when he was working in the late 1920s at the Cape Juby airfield in the Spanish zone of South Morocco.It was there, between the Atlantic Ocean and the ochre dunes of the Sahara, that he found the setting for his future work “Le Petit Prince” (The Little Prince), which tells of a pilot whose plane crashes in the Sahara, where he meets a young boy.Latin America reachedIn 1927 Latecoere sold the company to French industrialist Marcel Bouilloux-Lafont, who was based in Latin America, where he introduced the service and renamed the company Aeropostale.In May 1930 Jean Mermoz carried out the first commercial air crossing across the south Atlantic, between Saint-Louis in Senegal and Natal in Brazil with a Late 28 seaplane.Aeropostale’s Henri Guillaumet regularly crossed the dangerous Andes Mountains, delivering mail between Buenos Aires and Santiago in Chile. On December 25, 1918 a daring French industrialist launched the world’s first ever airmail service, flying between the southwestern French city of Toulouse and Barcelona in northeastern Spain. NTSB considering technology to avoid accidents, close calls The company set its sights on Dakar in Senegal, also a French colony.That would involve flying over hundreds of kilometres of desert, where rebellious Moorish tribes lived. © 2018 AFP French aviator Jean Mermoz was one of the pioneers of Aeropostale It was the beginning of an adventure which would soon see pioneering pilots from the company, best known as Aeropostale, delivering letters to Morocco, Senegal in Africa and later to Latin America.The plan for a regular airmail service was dreamt up in the last months of World War I by visionary captain of industry, Pierre-Georges Latecoere.If it were to work, he would have to build more efficient planes at his Toulouse factory.It seemed sheer madness in an era when pilots navigated by sight, without sophisticated onboard instruments, and did not even have sealed cockpits, their heads open to the elements.”I’ve redone all the calculations, they confirm the opinion of specialists. Our idea is unachievable,” Latecoere said. “There is only one thing left for us to do, that is to carry it out.”‘Insane’ and ‘unreasonable’When his Salmson biplane set out for Barcelona on Christmas Day in 1918, Latecoere sat behind the pilot, Rene Cornemont, according to the book “Aeropostale” (2010).The plane made the trip in two hours and 20 minutes with its sack of letters and parcels. Civilian airmail was born. In June 1930 his Potez 25 made an emergency landing in the mountains. He was taken in by a villager after walking for several days in the snow.”What I did, no idiot would ever have done,” he told Saint-Exupery when they met several days later.Aeropostale was by this time financially strapped. In 1933 its assets were bought by a group of aviation companies which would later become Air France.Mermoz was lost at sea in 1936. Several decades later his correspondence with his family and friends was published under the title “Defricheur du ciel” (Pioneer of the sky).The Aeropostale saga was just the beginning of a long list of airborne feats around the world between the two World Wars.Among them was the first non-stop transatlantic flight by British aviators John Alcock and Arthur Brown in 1919. The first major national airlines started to form that year with Dutch KLM, followed by Germany’s Lufthansa in 1926 and American Pan Am in 1927.

More fatal accidents came over the following months.The press wrote of an “insane undertaking” and an “unreasonable sacrifice”.Hostage drama and literary legendsBut as aircraft and organisation evolved, the link was extended to Casablanca.By late 1923 the company, by then called Compagnie Generale d’entreprises aeronautiques (CGA), used around 100 planes and had already transported three million letters and 1,344 daring passengers.

Algorithm gives robots an instinctive understanding of how to use tools

first_img For humans, the ability to recognize and use tools is almost instinctive. There are also many examples in which tool use seems hardwired into the brain of animals: some birds and primates use sticks or stones to obtain food, for example. One proposed reason for this neurologically embedded ability to use tools is that the animal’s brain perceives the external object as an extension of its own body. Inspired by this idea, Keng Peng Tee and his colleagues from the A*STAR Institute for Infocomm Research, along with Gowrishankar Ganesh from the CNRS-AIST Joint Robotics Laboratory located in Tsukuba, Japan developed an algorithm that enables robots to recognize, and immediately use tools that they have never seen before.Previous research by Ganesh has indicated that the human brain recognizes a limb not just by its physical features, but by its functionality. Building on this insight, Ganesh and the A*STAR team proposed that a robot can recognize the potential of a tool by comparing its shape with that of its own hand and arm when used to achieve this same task. They wrote an algorithm based on this idea and tested it by setting a robot the task of moving, without grasping, a disk to a desired end point on a table. This involved the robot either pulling the disk toward itself, pushing it away, or shifting it sideways.”The robot is programmed with the ability to complete the task by itself, represented by a hand shape template,” explains Tee. “When the task cannot be completed, because its arms aren’t long enough for example, the robot is able to recognize a viable tool by matching the tool shape with the hand shape template.”Thus, the algorithm enabled the robot to successfully recognize when a task cannot be performed without a tool, to identify an unknown object as a potential tool, and then to use the tool to achieve the task. “Next we will look into automatic learning of the features that represent existing skills, rather than pre-defining hand shape templates,” says Tee.

IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), 2018. oar.a-star.edu.sg/jspui/handle/123456789/2453 A*STAR researchers working with colleagues in Japan have developed a method by which robots can automatically recognize an object as a potential tool and use it, despite never having seen it before.

From toilet to brickyard Recycling biosolids to make sustainable bricks

first_img Provided by RMIT University Biosolids microbes pose manageable risk to workers Biosolids are a by-product of the wastewater treatment process that can be used as fertiliser, in land rehabilitation or as a construction material.Around 30% of the world’s biosolids are stockpiled or sent to landfill, using up valuable land and potentially emitting greenhouse gases, creating an environmental challenge.Now a team at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, has demonstrated that fired-clay bricks incorporating biosolids could be a sustainable solution for both the wastewater treatment and brickmaking industries.Published this month in the journal Buildings, the research showed how making biosolids bricks only required around half the energy of conventional bricks.As well as being cheaper to produce, the biosolids bricks also had a lower thermal conductivity, transferring less heat to potentially give buildings higher environmental performance.The United States produces about 7.1 million tonnes of biosolids a year, while the EU produces over 9 million tonnes. In Australia, 327,000 tonnes of biosolids are produced annually.The study found there was a significant opportunity to create a new beneficial reuse market—bricks.About 5 million tonnes of the biosolids produced in Australia, New Zealand, the EU, US and Canada currently go to landfill or stockpiles each year. Using a minimum 15% biosolids content in 15% of bricks produced could use up this 5 million tonnes. Associate Professor Abbas Mohajerani with a biosolids brick. Credit: RMIT University The research examined the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of fired-clay bricks incorporating different proportions of biosolids, from 10 to 25%.The biosolid-enhanced bricks passed compressive strength tests and analysis demonstrated heavy metals are largely trapped within the brick. Biosolids can have significantly different chemical characteristics, so the researchers recommend further testing before large-scale production.The biosolids bricks are more porous than standard bricks, giving them lower thermal conductivity.The research also showed brick firing energy demand was cut by up to 48.6% for bricks incorporating 25% biosolids. This is due to the organic content of the biosolids and could considerably reduce the carbon footprint of brick manufacturing companies.The results of a comparative Life Cycle Assessment and an emissions study conducted as part of the research confirmed biosolids bricks offered a sustainable alternative approach to addressing the environmental impacts of biosolids management and brick manufacturing.

(AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, File) Nanzer tweeted he will be moving on from Activision Blizzard, the company behind the Overwatch game and league, for a “new opportunity.” He didn’t provide further details or a firm timeline except to say he’ll be leaving “soon.” Epic Games told ESPN they had agreed to hire Nanzer, who will try to help to turn the world’s most popular video game into a sustainable esport.Activision Blizzard says Nanzer will be replaced by Pete Vlastelica, President and CEO of Activision Blizzard Esports Leagues.Nanzer was integral in launching the Overwatch League, a global endeavor with franchises in 20 cities across Asia, North America and Europe that compete in the 6 vs. 6 first-person computer game. Nanzer was working in Blizzard’s marketing department when he hatched the idea for the league, and he has been its only commissioner.The Overwatch League’s first season was a smashing success. It filled Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for a two-night championship in July, becoming the first live esport broadcast in prime time on ESPN and winning the Esports Live Event of the Year at the Esports Awards in November. The league’s initial investors included professional sports owners like the New England Patriots’ Robert Kraft, New York Mets’ Jeff Wilpon and Los Angeles Rams’ Stan Kroenke, and the league had unprecedented success pulling in non-endemic sponsorships to the burgeoning industry.The league is set to fulfill Nanzer’s ultimate vision by launching a global home-and-away format next season. The majority of its regular season matches so far have been held in Southern California.Nanzer tweeted that he “can’t emphasize enough how proud I am of what we’ve all accomplished together.”Now it seems he’ll turn his attention to Fortnite, a cultural sensation that has struggled to convert its popularity into a competitive format. Among the challenges: the battle royale’s 100-player, last-man-standing format has been difficult to broadcast, especially as competitors have taken conservative—and thus less entertaining—approaches to competition.Vlastelica, formerly of Fox Sports, said in a statement he would be “stepping in as Overwatch League commissioner, effective immediately.”We have the best team in the business working incredibly hard to realize the vision we set out to create years ago,” he added, “And I’ll be working very closely with our staff, the teams and partners to do just that.” ‘Overwatch’ eSports expands to new cities, including Parislast_img read more

Google pledges 1 bn for housing crisis in Bay Area

first_img Citation: Google pledges $1 bn for housing crisis in Bay Area (2019, June 18) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-06-google-pledges-bn-housing-crisis.html Google investing billions in US operations Google on Tuesday pledged to commit more than $1 billion to help address the severe housing crisis in the region that includes its headquarters and Silicon Valley. Chief executive Sundar Pichai announced the initiative, saying the internet colossus wants to be “a good neighbor” in the area bursting with technology companies.The move comes with Silicon Valley firms under pressure over the spike in real estate prices, lack of affordable housing and growing homeless problem in the San Francisco Bay region.The region has attracted thousands of highly paid tech workers that has strained the housing supply and led to an explosion in prices.Pichai said Google had previously invested in housing in areas where it has operations.”Today we’re announcing an additional $1 billion investment in housing across the Bay Area,” Pichai said in a blog post.The largest chunk of this would be to “repurpose” over the next 10 years for housing some $750 million of Google’s land, most of which is currently zoned for office or commercial space.”This will enable us to support the development of at least 15,000 new homes at all income levels in the Bay Area, including housing options for middle and low-income families,” he said.”We hope this plays a role in addressing the chronic shortage of affordable housing options for long-time middle and low income residents.”Google, the largest unit of the Alphabet holding company, also pledged a $250 million investment fund providing incentives to build at least 5,000 affordable housing units across the market.An additional $50 million will be funneled through the company’s philanthropic arm Google.org to nonprofits focused on homelessness and displacement, adding to some $18 million in grants given over the past five years.”In the coming months, we’ll continue to work with local municipalities to support plans that allow residential developers to build quickly and economically,” Pichai said.”Our goal is to get housing construction started immediately, and for homes to be available in the next few years.”Earlier this year, companies and organizations, including one started by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, pledged some $500 million for affordable housing in the same region in response to a plea from Governor Gavin Newsom.Microsoft, based in the northwestern city of Seattle, has pledged $500 million for a similar initiative.

Scientists Find an Exceptional Specimen of a Cretaceous LizardInside a Dinosaurs Belly

first_imgAbout 120 million years ago, a small dinosaur gulped down a lizard, swallowing the reptile whole. The wee lizard’s story might have ended there, but the dinosaur died soon after and was preserved as a fossil. Millions of years later, paleontologists discovered the scaly meal in the dinosaur’s belly. Scientists found the lizard when they examined the fossil of a feathered dinosaur named Microraptor zhaoianus, a small carnivore from the early Cretaceous period (145.5 million to 65.5 million years ago) in what is now northeastern China. In Microraptor’s abdomen was a near-complete skeleton that the researchers identified as a previously unknown lizard species. This “exceptional specimen” paints a clearer picture of the animal diversity in this region during the Cretaceous, and it hints at what was on the menu for dinosaur predators like Microraptor, the scientists reported in a new study.

It had flight feathers on its front and back limbs, and it could likely glide or even fly, according to the study. The fossilized lizard’s skeleton was still whole and nearly complete, and it appeared to belong to a juvenile. Its position inside the dinosaur’s gut showed that it was gulped down head first, “consistent with feeding behavior in extant carnivorous lizards and birds,” the study authors wrote. Image Gallery: 25 Amazing Ancient Beasts Tiny Dino: Reconstructing Microraptor’s Black Feathers They dubbed the ingested lizard Indrasaurus wangi: The species name honors paleontologist Yuan Wang, director of the Paleozoological Museum of China, and Indrasaurus refers to a legend from ancient Indian texts about the deity Indra, who was swallowed whole by a dragon. Close examination of the lizard’s teeth revealed that they were widely spaced, short-crowned and nearly square. They were unlike the teeth in other Cretaceous lizards, and their unusual shape suggests that the lizard may have had a diet that differed from that of its close relatives, the scientists said in the study. Microraptor and its lizard lunch provide a rare glimpse of direct interactions between predators and prey in ecosystems that vanished millions of years ago. They were found alongside other Microraptor fossils that hold the remains of mammals, fish and birds in their bellies, according to the study. Using these fossils and others from more than two dozen animal groups, the researchers reconstructed a food web showing who ate whom in the Jehol Biota; this site in Liaoning, China — where Microraptor was discovered in 2005 — holds a diverse array of exceptionally preserved fossils dating from 133 million to 120 million years ago. The findings were published online July 11 in the journal Current Biology.

Rahul promises 50 quota for women at all levels of Congress

first_img Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said he is committed to having 50 per cent women at all levels of the party organisation. While he underlined that this would be a process for which a time-frame is difficult to provide, the Congress President said it was an “ideological” commitment for him along, with the stress on other wider institutional steps such as the Women’s Reservation Bill.The Congress President, while addressing a “Mahila Adhikaar Sammelan” here, promised to extend his party’s full support to the passage of the Women’s Reservation Bill, and said that if the Modi government does not table it in the Lok Sabha, the Congress would, soon after coming to power.Gandhi said the Congress’s commitment to women’s empowerment is what distinguishes it from the ruling BJP along with other fundamental ideological differences on secularism, role of the State in upliftment of the poor through steps such as MNREGA which, he said, the “Prime Minister Narendra Modi mocks and is determined to destroy”.He said the BJP, owing to its ideological affiliation with a patriarchal, male-chauvinistic organisation such as the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is “inherently anti-women” which is why crimes against women have risen sharply under the BJP’s tenure.Attacking the PM for his silence on incidents of alleged rape, including in shelter homes in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, the Amethi MP asserted that what is happening against women during his tenure, “had not happened in the previous 3,000 years in India”. He alleged that Modi had remained silent over the atrocities against women in the backdrop of rapes of girls in shelter homes in Muzaffarpur in Bihar and in Uttar Pradesh.“The Prime Minister speaks on everything — bullet train, aeroplanes, toilets, but not women. Whenever there are atrocities on women, he does not speak up,” Gandhi said. “(He) had talked about changing India, had talked about 70 years…what they have done against women in the last four years, had not happened in the previous 3,000 years in this country, leave alone 70 years.”“In UP women are raped, the Prime Minister does not say a word on it. In Jharkhand, and in various States, women are raped, in Bihar small girls are raped, but our Prime Minister cannot speak a word on it,” he said. In a reference to the Unnao rape case, Gandhi said that in UP “their MLA is accused of rape”, but the prime minister does not say a word.”The Congress chief said bringing women to the forefront in the Congress was his priority and he was committed to get women framing policy, manifesto and strengthening the organisation. “We are going to create space for you in the Congress party. We need to create special space for women in our party. We need to create a space at every level.“The RSS and the BJP will never be able to show the country a similar vision. Their parent organisation, the RSS, in its history has never allowed a woman into its organisation,” Rahul said.“There are other organisations in the BJP that have females in it, but the RSS is a completely male chauvinist organisation that does not believe in giving space to women,” he alleged, adding that they simply “can’t do what we can do“.

90 people favour free rides for women in metros and buses AAP

first_imgSHARE SHARE EMAIL railway June 18, 2019 Published on COMMENT Over 90 per cent of the people favour free rides for women in Delhi metro and buses, the Aam Aadmi Party claimed on Tuesday.Senior AAP leader Gopal Rai said the finding was based on a survey conducted by his party legislators, municipal councillors and women’s wing over a period of 10 days with more than 71,000 people participating in it.“We met all sections of society. The party held 1,120 meetings and found that of 71,572 people, as many as 64,972 were in favour of free rides for women in metros and buses,” Rai told presspersons.He said the report of the survey would be submitted to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The party wants to implement the proposal as soon as possible, Rai added.“The DMRC gave two proposals, one of them being the issuance of pink cards for women. The DMRC said it would take about eight months to implement the proposal, but we would like to enforce it as soon as possible,” he said.Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had on June 3 announced his government’s decision to provide free travel for women in Delhi’s public transport buses and Metro trains.Brushing aside fears of overcrowding in metro trains due to the provision for free travel for women, Kejriwal said the step would not lead to any congestion as the daily ridership would increase by just one lakh. Currently, 25 lakh people travel by metro daily. New Delhi SHARE COMMENTSlast_img read more

IJM contract termination likely due to deadline issue

first_imgNOTHING seems certain in corporate Malaysia, especially when it comes to contracts on the award of jobs. Some contracts awarded under the previous government that was initially perceived to be up for grabs have been given back to the original contractors.The latest is the multi-billion-ringgit Klang Valley double track phase 2 project where the contract has been reinstated to the original contractors – a joint venture between Dhaya Maju Infrastructure (Asia) Sdn Bhd (DMIA) and Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) – at a reduced price of RM4.475bil.The announcement by Transport Minister Anthony Loke on Tuesday put to rest a 10-month period of uncertainty with regard to the project that was awarded to the joint venture by the Barisan Nasional government a week before parliament dissolved.In reinstating the job to DMIA-LTAT, the minister stressed on the sanctity of contract that the government had to honour in considering termination of old contracts. Stock on the Move 10 Jul 2019 Quick take: IJM falls 5.3% on contract termination Related News Earlier this week, IJM Corp Bhd said its RM1.12bil contract for underground works on the light rail transit line 3 (LRT 3) project had been terminated.IJM said its unit IJM Construction Sdn Bhd (IJMC) had received the notice of termination from MRCB George Kent Sdn Bhd (MRCB-GK) on July 8.IJMC had been awarded the contract on March 13, 2018. Preliminary work had commenced before the project was suspended in June 2018.“IJMC is currently consulting its advisers and will seek appropriate legal redress under the contract,” it said.In line with the lower cost of the entire LRT 3 project that was scaled down to RM16.6bil from RM30.2bil, the portion that was to be done by IJM had been reduced substantially.According to sources, the contract was reduced to about RM520mil as there is no underground station involved.It is learnt that both parties have agreed on the pricing. However, the timing to complete the project is said to be an issue.Sources say MRCB-GK felt there was no firm commitment from IJM Corp to complete the project within the stipulated time – estimated at two and a half years.“However IJM Corp contends that timing is not an issue and it could meet the deadline as the tunnel does not require a completely new tunnel-boring machine (TBM). It needs a letter of award to start work,” sources tell StarBizWeek.A completely new TBM would require about eight months to complete while a reconditioned machine would need only half the time.Nevertheless, the termination of IJM Corp from the LRT 3 job came as a surprise, especially after a series of negotiations of the whole LRT 3 project in the last 12 months.MRCB-GK is a joint venture between Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd and George Kent (M) Bhd .Under the new terms, their mandate is to complete the LRT 3 project as the turnkey contractor with a fixed lump-sum payment of RM16.6bil by February 2024.The client for MRCB-GK is Prasarana Sdn Bhd, which now comes under the Transport Ministry.IJM Corp is seeking compensation for termination and the bill is likely to come from Prasarana. Whether it is, the end of its involvement in the project is left to be seen.IJM Corp received the contract in March last year and preliminary works had commenced before the LRT 3 project was stopped in June by the government due to ballooned cost.After a revision, the Finance Ministry has approved the resumption of the project at a lower cost after reducing the number and size of stations, changes in specifications and reduced number of car train sets.In the event a new party comes to take up the job, it is learnt that contractors from China are putting in strong proposals.Market observers say works on the LRT 3 project have already resumed since May and the changes for all the work packages have been concluded. But IJM Corp’s package is still under review.Cut in earnings forecast The contract termination had seen some analysts downgrading their recommendation on IJM Corp.MIDF Research has downgraded its call on IJM Corp to “sell” because the termination could obstruct further upside potential to its share price.“IJM Corp will likely continue facing operational challenges stemming from the slowdown in property and plantation segments.“Concurrently, we saw its share price has priced-in the improved sentiment of construction sector amidst the return of mega projects namely the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) and Bandar Malaysia,” it says in a report.According to Bloomberg data, analysts have varied recommendations on IJM Corp shares – there are five analysts giving “buy” call, eight “hold” and nine “sell”.Since the announcement of the termination, IJM Corp’s share price has declined more than 3% to RM2.38.On a year-to-date basis, the stock has done very well, rising more than 46%, in line with the other constructions counters on Bursa Malaysia that were boosted by the revival of mega infrastructure projects.IJM Corp’s major shareholders are the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), Amanah Saham Bumiputera, Retirement Fund Inc and Urusharta Jamaah.The EPF is the single largest shareholder in IJM Corp with about 15.5% stake.MIDF says the change in the role of MRCB-GK JV from project delivery partner to turnkey contractor has allowed the two firms to participate in the works of LRT 3 projects.“We will not be surprised if MRCB-GK decided to take over the work package.“Another option which the turnkey contractor could adopt is calling for an open re-tendering of the work package.“Taking the latter into consideration, we believe IJM Corp stands a fair chance of winning as a sub-contractor,” it says.A source says other contracts are unlikely to be terminated from the LRT 3 project as the many contractors have agreed on the new contracts and some works have already resumed in May.Analysts say the LRT 3 jobs made about 15% of IJM Corp’s total orderbook and would impact its earnings despite the reimbursement from the termination.“Excluding the LRT 3 contract, IJM Corp’s earnings are expected to be reduced by 3%-4% in financial years 2020-2022, based on our earnings forecast estimates,” UOB Kay Hian Research says.It has suggested a “hold” call on IJM Corp despite lower earnings estimate.Strong construction order bookExcluding the LRT 3 contract, IJM Corp’s order book will stand at about RM6.7bil, mainly from its highway jobs in India.Last year, IJM Corp secured jobs worth RM2.7bil in India. Earlier this year, the group bagged a contract worth RM1.5bil in India for the construction of the Solapur-Bijapur Highway on a 20-year build-on-transfer basis.Aside from its billion-ringgit highway job in India, IJM Corp is building three towers at the Tun Razak Exchange – the new HSBC headquarters, Affin Bank Bhd’s headquarters and Menara Prudential.

Karnataka crisis Parties shift MLAs to resorts as CM readies to move

first_img Next Press Trust of India BengaluruJuly 12, 2019UPDATED: July 12, 2019 22:40 IST Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy (ANI)Its resort politics time again in Karnataka as all three key players — ruling Congress and JDS and opposition BJP — have herded their MLAs in luxury stays to keep their flock intact amid the continuing imbroglio triggered by the legislators’ resignation saga.The JDS has chosen the serene surroundings of Nandi Hill on the city outskirts while its partner Congress opted for a star hotel here, sources in the parties said.The MLAs of the BJP are staying in the cozy comforts of a resort near Yelahanka here and an ultra luxury hotel.The ruling combine has been fighting to save its 13-month old government after 16 of its MLAs resigned from the assembly, putting question marks on its survival.While several rebel MLAs have been staying in a Mumbai hotel since their resignations last Saturday, the Congress and JDS are apparently keen to avoid any further erosion in their strength.Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy’s announcement in assembly Friday he would seek a trust vote and expressing confidence of winning it has only further strengthened the resolve of the parties to keep their numbers intact.In January this year, the Congress and BJP MLAs were shifted to resorts to avoid poaching following a brief spell of instablity then triggered by two independent MLAs withdrawing their support to the government.Now, the lush green resort spread over 275 acres on the foothills of Nandi Hill overlooking a lake is bustling with activity as over 30 MLAs of the JDS have been accommodated there for the past three days.”We have booked 34 rooms there. Except for chief minister and a few others, about 30 MLAs are staying there,” a senior JD(S) functionary told PTI.BJP sources said their MLAs have been shifted to a resort and a hotel.The party is apparently concerned that the ruling side could make an attempt to poach on its MLAs, though former chief minister and senior leader Siddaramaiah Friday ruled out any such move.They (Congress and JDS) are trying to buy time to make some arrangements to keep the government afloat, despite knowing the fact that its end has come. They are working on some equations, which I doubt will work, BJP spokesperson S Prakash told PTI.The woes of the ruling coalition, which has been rocked by dissidence within since last year, mounted after its dismal show in Lok Sabha elections.ALSO READ | Karnataka crisis: Will face all issues on floor of House, says CM KumaraswamyALSO WATCH | Nataka in Karnataka: Rahul Gandhi breaks his silence, says BJP using money power to topple govtsFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

they’re simply driven to reach their goals and quick to eliminate roadblocks and put aside distractions that stand in their way Remarkably effective people set their goals first So decide what success means to you (Your definition of success is and should be different from everyone else’s) You’ll find it’s easy to stay focused and be effective when you truly care about what you hope to achieve Even so once they establish a goal remarkably effective people don’t focus solely on that goal; instead … 2 Then they create systems If you’re an entrepreneur your goal is to build a successful business Your system consists of your processes for sales marketing fulfillment operations etc A goal is great for planning and mapping out what success looks like; a system is great for actually making progress toward that goal Remarkably effective people know a goal can provide direction and even push them forward in the short term but eventually a well-designed system will always win Everyone has goals; committing to a system makes all the difference in achieving that goal 3 They believe in themselves Diligence isn’t easy Hard work is hard Pushing forward when successes are few and far between takes optimism and self-belief That’s why busy people quickly give up and effective people keep going Remarkably effective people embrace the fact (and it is a fact) that the only way to get to where they want to go is to try … and keep on trying They know that eventually they will succeed because … 4 They believe they are in control of their lives Many people feel luck–or outside forces–has a lot to do with success or failure If they succeed luck favored them; if they fail luck was against them Luck certainly does play a part but effective people don’t hope for good luck or worry about bad luck They assume success is totally within their control If they succeed they caused it; if they fail they caused that too Remarkably effective people waste zero mental energy worrying about what might happen to them–they put all their effort into making things happen They know they can never control luck … but they can always control themselves 5 And yet they also embrace “random” When your nose is to the grindstone all you can see is the grindstone And that means you miss opportunities to spot something new try something different or go off on a fruitful tangent Effective people stay almost totally on-task Remarkably effective people build in time and opportunity to experience new things try new methods and benefit from happy accidents They’re not always trying to reinvent the wheel But they’re more than happy to adopt someone else’s perfectly functioning wheel 6 They find happiness in the success of others Great teams win because their most talented members are willing to sacrifice to help others succeed That’s why great companies are made up of employees who help each other know their roles set aside their personal goals and value team success over everything else Where does that attitude come from You Focus only on yourself and ultimately you’ll be by yourself To be remarkably effective find fulfillment in helping other people succeed In the process you will succeed too–in more ways than one 7 They use their goals to make decisions automatic In a podcast Tim Ferriss described how Herb Kelleher the CEO of Southwest Airlines makes so many decisions every day Kelleher applies a simple framework to every issue: Will this help Southwest be the low-cost provider If so the answer is yes If not no Remarkably effective people apply the same framework to the decisions they make “Will this help me reach my goal If not I won’t do it” If you feel like you’re constantly struggling to make decisions take a step back Think about your goals; your goals will help you make decisions That’s why remarkably effective people are so decisive Indecision is born of a lack of purpose: When you know what you truly want most of your decisions can–and should–be almost automatic 8 They don’t multitask Plenty of research says multitasking doesn’t work (Some research says multitasking actually makes you stupid) Maybe you don’t agree Maybe you’re wrong Try to do two things at once and you’ll do both half-assed Remarkably effective people focus on one thing at a time They do that one thing incredibly well … and then they move on to whatever is next And they do that incredibly well 9 They freely ask for help Busy people ask for help getting something done Remarkably effective people ask for help not just because they need help but also because by asking they show respect for the other person and trust his or her experience skill or insight Mutual respect is the foundation of every solid relationship–and the best way to create mutual respect is to first show respect Want to be remarkably effective Surround yourself with people who trust and motivate and inspire you–and in turn are inspired by you Even if you don’t achieve all your goals your life will be infinitely richer Contact us at editors@timecom who lost 1-0 at home to bottom club Benevento on Saturday climbing above AC Milan fulfilling her daughters wish by getting married at Bury Town Hall We spoke with Ariana Grande and her management team "Altru has spent significant time and resources on having a custom baffle built (to comply the noise with city code) the health department had only received one complaint about the noise In 1996 Danny Boyle made a brash Jonny Lee Miller’s Sick Boy and Ewen Bremner’s Spud were funny and awful and exhilarating This is going to be the new normal unless we stop it" The Haridwar-based company had proposed to invest up to Rs 6" says Tracey Brown of the pressure group Sense About Science such as having online commentary by other researchers Friends and family crowded the two on their way out of the courtroom while in Portlandcom Mel Evans—AP Protestors and activits hold a rally in front of Chicago Police Headquarters in Chicago on April 28 On one hand PTI After the state government agreed to accept almost all demands of the agitating farmers when they reached Mumbai With people satisfied with state leadership (if not all The Congress party lost 46 seats while AAP opened its account in MCD by winning 46 seats the absence of forward Kawhi Leonard and guard Danny Green made no difference to the San Antonio Spurs Over the past few months police mobilization since large-scale riots in 2011” President Trump will arrive in Britain on Thursday after the NATO summit in Belgium Interment: Grafton Lutheran Cemetery Jungle Luhdut said WHO refers researchers who want a checklist of what needs to be in a paper to the so-called CONSORT statement who pay for suboptimal or harmful treatments it said with air and ground troops deployed to take back the base is also scheduled to host an event Tuesday night at Trump Tower in New York Previously Bashir Ahmaad The form On its part ” He appealed that the issue be addressed urgently The Baywatch movie was originally conceived as a parody with Bill Hader at its center.

defendant has revealed that we can expect to see Dumbledore enlisting his former student Scamander in an effort to thwart Grindelwalds plans to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beingsDHe was jailed under the National Security Act (NSA) in connection with the Saharanpur riots of May 2017 in which clashes between Thakurs and Scheduled Castes had left 16 injured and one dead A signboard that reads ‘The Great Chamar’ erected outside Ghadkoli village is believed to be the initial feud with the Thakur’s objecting to it but the Bhim Army having its way which led from one event to another resulting in the riots Chandrashekhar was arrested in June 2017 from Dalhousie Himachal Pradesh The Scheduled Caste community in Uttar Pradesh was unhappy with the action taken by the police and government which gradually led to mass scale conversions to Buddhism in Saharanpur and the community maintaining an arm’s distance from the BJP File image of Bhim Army founder Chandrashekhar Azad Ravan Image courtesy: Facebook/@BhimArmyOfficial Chandrashekhar 30 who hails from Shabbirpur village in Saharanpur founded the Bhim Army Ekta Mission in 2015 to counter the dominant Thakurs’ influence in the district The organisation claims to have more than 40000 members across seven states including Haryana Punjab Uttarakhand and Rajasthan Two other persons — Sonu and Shivkumar — who were in jail in connection with the riots were also released on Friday as per a government order The state government decided to release Chandrashekhar on grounds of sympathy due to his mother’s health it states After his release around 230 am on Friday Chandrashekhar told mediapersons that he will continue his fight against the oppressive government in the state and strengthen the mahagathbandhan He also said that the government could not prove any charge against him under the NSA and thus have released him before the next hearing in the case After the Saharanpur riots the Bhim Army had garnered the support of Scheduled Castes across the country particularly in states like Haryana Uttarakhand and Punjab as several protests were held demanding Chandrashekhar’s release Attempt to woo Scheduled Caste community Post the Saharanpur riots the impact of the Scheduled Caste community distancing itself from the BJP was seen to such an extent that despite the latter winning 312 out of 403 seats in the 2017 Assembly elections the party lost both Kairana Lok Sabha and the Noorpur Assembly seats when bypolls took place in May 2018 One of the main reasons behind the BJP’s defeat is believed to be the Bhim Army extending its support to the Opposition (Congress + BSP + SP+ RLD) candidate Tabassum Hasan Adding fuel to the fire the police arrested multiple protesters including minors in connection with the violence that took place during April’s Bharat Bandh This further pushed away an already estranged community In this background it seems like the BJP is going to try hard to reach out to the community According to documentary filmmaker Nakul Singh Sawhney who has been documenting atrocities on Scheduled Castes in Saharanpur it is a win for the movement for the community’s rights “Ravan is the voice of the movement for the rights of the Scheduled Caste community in India and not just in Uttar Pradesh or Saharanpur” says Sawhney That Ravan had been a constant voice bringing to light atrocities committed against the community did not go down well with the government and they unconstitutionally imposed the NSA on him says Sawhney The move to release him is not out of sympathy but out of pressure from the Scheduled Caste community which has been protesting against Ravan’s arrest Sawhney adds Manjit Nautiyal the national spokesperson of the Bhim Army welcomed the decision while also adding that they will not allow the BJP to use the issue for electoral gains in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections “We extend our thanks but if this has been done to woo the Scheduled Castes then we are not going to let it happen” says Nautiyal adding that the community will continue the struggle until they are treated equally Pitching Ravan versus Maya The government’s move to release Chandrashekhar before his jail term ends could also be an attempt of the BJP to break the Scheduled Caste vote bank which has so far supported Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh Chandrashekhar has in the past voiced his dissatisfaction with the BSP supremo while praising party founder Kanshi Ram in the same breath Votes from Scheduled Castes in Uttar Pradesh have been under the firm grip of Mayawati which was evident with the mandate of the Phoolpur and Gorakhpur by-elections where the SP-BSP alliance vanquished an over-confident BJP However according to activist from the community and former IPS officer SR Darapuri Mayawati has been opposing the Bhim Army and has once even said that Chandrashekhar is a product of the RSS “So this move makes it very clear that Ravan will come out as a competitor of Mayawati and will downplay her” he says To break it down the BJP has made a calculated move to sway the votes of Scheduled Castes in its favour in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections However it remains to be seen if voters from the community will align with the saffron party bear with the situation and likening itself to a Neanderthalthe
