Govt to give ownership rights to 7K families allotted land under scheme

Posted on by

first_imgNEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party government has decided to grant ownership rights to around 7,200 families that got agricultural land in the mid-70s under a programme for landless people. Under the “20-point programme”, launched during former prime minister Indira Gandhi’s tenure in 1975-76, around 12,500 landless families in Delhi got land for cultivation, according to officials.”At that time, there were around 360 villages in Delhi. Around 12,500 families from these villages got plots measuring an acre or less,” Delhi’s Social Justice Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam said. Recognised as “Asamis” or tenants, these families were required to apply for land ownership with the revenue department.

Considering the rapid rate of urbanisation in the national capital, new housing and infrastructure projects will be undertaken. Therefore, they face a serious threat of eviction,” Gautam said.

They have access to economic opportunities, while these 7,200 families in 89 villages of Delhi are vulnerable to displacement without any compensation, the minister said. “These families have been moving from pillar to post for the last 40 years. The Delhi government had even convened a special session on the issue around one and half years ago. Still, not much has been achieved… the files keep oscillating between the Centre and the city government,” he alleged. Land rights have been granted under the 20-point programme across the country. Only Delhi is lagging behind, Gautam claimed. Recently, at a meeting convened by the minister and Chief Secretary Vijay Dev, district magistrates, divisional commissioners and the principal secretary (revenue) were directed to dispose of the pending cases at the earliest. An official said district magistrates have started meeting such families and the cases will be disposed of soon.last_img read more

President says 25 to 30 active members linked to attacks at large

Posted on by

President Maithripala Sirisena says there are a further 25 to 30 “active members” linked to the Easter Sunday bombings still at large.Sirisena told Reuters on Saturday the security forces would “eradicate terrorism” following devastating suicide attacks on Easter Sunday and restore stability before a presidential election due by year-end. Local intelligence officials believe that Zahran Hashim, a radical Tamil-speaking preacher from the east of the Indian Ocean island nation, may have been a key player in plotting the Easter bombings. Officials believe he was one of nine suicide bombers. “We have already identified all active members of the group and it’s a case of now arresting them,” Sirisena said, adding that there were a further 25 to 30 “active members” linked to the bombings still at large.Sirisena said that all indications suggested Islamic State had been involved, adding: “It’s crystal clear because after the attacks the IS organization made an announcement claiming responsibility for the bombings.” “Elections cannot be postponed, therefore before the elections I will bring about stability and I will eradicate terrorism,” Sirisena told Reuters. The elections are likely to take place between Nov. 10 and Dec. 10. Sirisena also said in an interview he believed Islamic State was behind the April 21 attacks, which targeted churches and luxury hotels and killed more than 250 people including 42 foreign nationals. The group has claimed responsibility. Sri Lanka authorities have previously said that they suspect the attackers had international links, although the precise nature of those connections is not known.Police have said they are also investigating the possible involvement of two previously little-known groups – National Thawheedh Jamaath and Jammiyathul Millathu Ibrahim.Sirisena said that intelligence services from eight countries, including the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and Interpol, were helping Sri Lanka with the investigation. read more

UN agency meeting seeks to boost responsible use of aquaculture

Posted on by

“The potential contribution of aquaculture to rural development, food security, hunger eradication, poverty reduction and national economic development is enormous,” a senior FAO Fisheries Resources Officer, Rohana Subasinghe, said.However debates regarding negative environmental, social and economic impacts of certain kinds of aquaculture practices have also picked up. In 2001, FAO established a sub-committee on Aquaculture – the farming of fish and aquatic plants in coastal sea areas and inland waterways – to inform its work and to promote international discussions on the issue. “The ultimate objective of the sub-committee is to ensure that this important sector is developed in a sustainable, responsible and equitable manner, resulting in a product that is nutritious, affordable, acceptable, safe to eat and accessible to all sectors of society,” said Serge Garcia, Director of FAO’s Fisheries Resources Division.The experts, resource managers and policy-makers gathered this week for the sub-committee’s second meeting are seeking to promote wider use of responsible and sustainable aquaculture as a tool in the fight against hunger and poverty. The agenda includes a discussion on the implementation of best practices within the sector, and talks on creating better systems for recording statistics and promoting the sharing of information and technology. Also slated is a discussion of international strategies for improving the safety and quality of aquaculture products. read more

Annan reports stalemate on Western Sahara dispute

Posted on by

Moreover, there is currently no agreement on what can be done to overcome the existing deadlock over the Peace Plan for the Self-Determination of the People of Western Sahara, the Secretary-General writes in a report to the Security Council. “The goal of enabling the people of Western Sahara to exercise their right to self-determination thus remains elusive,” he says. The plan, originally proposed last year by the Secretary-General’s Personal Envoy James Baker, who has since resigned, envisages a period of transition during which there would be a division of responsibilities between the Morocco and the Frente POLISARIO before the holding of a referendum for self-determination. Mr. Annan also expresses deep concern about the recent escalation in public rhetoric emanating from the parties and the region, and urges them to exercise the utmost restraint. As for the status of the UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO), originally deployed in September 1991 to monitor the ceasefire, the Secretary-General recommends either the maintenance of the status quo or the withdrawal of no more than 37 of the current 203 military observers. “The effective monitoring of the ceasefire between the parties by MINURSO over the last 13 years has been a major stabilizing and confidence-building achievement,” he says. Both sides have “expressed their strong preference that there should be no reduction in the size of the Mission, especially at this time.” If approved by the Council, the mandate would be extended until 30 April 2005. read more

12 pubs of Christmas feeds into Irelands problem with alcohol says charity

Posted on by

first_imgThis kind of festive indulgence feeds into the cultural problem associated with how some people drink in Ireland.In overall terms we drink less often in Ireland than our European counterparts, but when we drink we tend to drink more and at a faster pace.Clearly the 12 Pubs practice exacerbates this ‘binge drinking’ pattern and this style of drinking. Yes (1441) A CHARITY THAT promotes the “mature enjoyment of alcohol” has appealed to Christmas revellers to abandon the much popular “12 pubs of Christmas” excursions.The Chief Executive of MEAS (Mature Enjoyment of Alcohol in Ireland Limited) Fionnuala Sheehan said the practice “is totally contrary to the principle of responsible drinking”.AlcoholShe added that the “12 Pubs of Christmas” is exacerbating the less acceptable way in which some Irish people tend to interact with alcohol. While she acknowledged that it was the season “to be jolly” she said “this kind of pub crawling needs to be dropped”.She added: No (3039) I don’t know (1154) Sheehan said that medical advice states that more than five standard drinks in one sitting can increase the harmful effects of drinking, adding that a standard drink is classed as a glass of cider/lager, a small glass of wine or a pub measure of spirits.“If someone drank only one standard drink in each of the twelve pubs they seriously increase the risk of such harm. If they drank one pint in each of the twelve pubs they very seriously increase the risk of harm,” she said.MEAS is a not-for-profit company to promote the responsible use of alcohol. In 2006 it established drinkaware.ie, an online consumer focused programme.So, we want to know what you think. Do you think that the 12 pubs of Christmas promotes irresponsible drinking?

first_imgSven-Goran Eriksson is convinced that his Lazio protégé Simone Inzaghi is “ready for a big team” after an impressive spell in charge of the clubThe former Italian forward, who is the younger of AC Milan legend Filippo Inzaghi, has been linked with Juventus recently after establishing Lazio as a top-four contender in the Serie A in his two years in charge.“Inzaghi is ready for a big team,” said Eriksson, according to Football-Italia.“As a player, he was very good tactically. He lives and thinks for football. He can coach any team in the world and he’s shown that he can do a great job.”Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….The 70-year-old, who led England to the quarter-finals in both the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, believes that Roberto Mancini would do “very well” if he is to be the new manager of the Italian national side.“Mancini?

Air Force to Apply New EPA Guidelines for Groundwater Contamination

Posted on by

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Air Force will apply new guidance from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for two groundwater contaminants in its ongoing effort to monitor water supplies at U.S. installations and their host communities, officials said last week.“Protecting human health is our priority,” Mark Correll, deputy assistant secretary for environment, safety and infrastructure, said in a news release. “When there’s a potential our missions are having, or may have had, an adverse impact on communities, we take appropriate measures to protect it,” Correll said.Currently, the Air Force has tested for perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) at 30 bases, with 202 homes showing concentrations that exceed the new guidance levels. “AFCEC will continue to reevaluate completed assessments using the revised health advisory levels as part of a continuous process,” the release said. The chemicals are found in firefighting foams used by the military.The Air Force has been following guidance EPA issued in 2009 for perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) at 400 parts per trillion (ppt) and 200 ppt for perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). EPA released new lifetime exposure health advisories on May 19 for PFOS at 70 ppt and for PFOA at 70 ppt.“Where we find PFCs in drinking water supplies where our actions have caused contamination we will immediately notify and provide alternative drinking water supplies,” Correll said.The new guidance has spawned a response from military and local officials at active and former installations across the country.The Air Force Civil Engineer Center, for example, has started supplying four homes outside of Joint Base Cape Cod, Mass., with bottled water as a result of EPA’s stricter guidance for the two emerging contaminants, reported the Cape Cod Times.The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection expanded its free bottled water program to residents near two former installations in suburban Philadelphia — Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove and Naval Air Warfare Center Warminster — whose wells have toxic levels of PFOA and PFOS under the new guidelines, reported NBC Philadelphia.last_img read more

Parnell Walker Spar At Soldotna Gubernatorial Debate

Posted on by

first_imgFour gubernatorial candidates took questions at a Chamber of Commerce forum Wednesday in Soldotna. It quickly turned into a debate between the two bigger names on the ballot, Gov. Sean Parnell and Bill Walker.Download Audio:Wednesday’s forum at the Soldotna Sports Center was mostly an opportunity to lay out broad visions for the state. Especially from the race’s lesser known candidates, like J.R. Meyers, running with the Alaska Constitution party.Meyers: “We’re hoping to gain more than 3% of the vote in this election, which will then give us political party status going into the future. We think the political marketplace in Alaska could benefit from freer exchange of diverse ideas.”Libertarian party candidate Carolyn Clift was the other quote unquote fringe candidate.Clift: “At this time when we are facing fiscal crises for the next few years, you need someone who is libertarian. That’s going to go in there and minimize government, look for the efficiencies and we are going to go in there and lean this government down.”Most of the answers came in the form of similar platitudes, based on each candidate’s agenda. For Walker and Parnell, Wednesday’s agenda was mostly filled with responses to each other’s thinly veiled attacks.Parnell: “I’m not sure it’s being under attack when I point out that Bill Walker plan for cutting the budget is about cutting 16% in one year and then asking him for the plan on how that gets allocated. I call it a fiscal plan; spending less and taxing less, which is the direction we’ve headed and we’ll continue to head.”Walker said his plan to reduce the state’s budget would be put in place over the course of years, if at all. He hopes to improve revenues so those cuts won’t be necessary in the first place.Walker: “Governor Parnell’s administration created the largest deficits we’ve ever had. Every year is deficit spending for the next ten years. That’s his plan. If that’s a plan that works for you at 7 million dollars a day, this is your guy right here.”Budgets and natural gas lines got the lion’s share of attention from the two leading candidates. But less thoroughly examined was the state’s record on domestic abuse and charges of misconduct and abuse within the upper ranks of the Alaska National Guard. After the forum, Parnell said he trusted the National Guard Bureau in its findings that misconduct reporting since 2012 has greatly improved, and he sees more changes in Guard leadership in the future.Parnell: “Certainly those (sexual assault issues) still exist, but we have to restore trust and confidence so people are willing to report. We’re interviewing people for the new adjutant general position, and that person will use their leadership role to bring about full scale change in the guard in conjunction with the National Guard Bureau.”Parnell has been criticized for delaying action after reports of sexual assault were made known to his office and allowing top Guard officers to be re-hired in the wake of misconduct investigations.last_img read more

No guarantees Jon Gruden wins big in his NFL return

Posted on by

first_imgNo guarantees Jon Gruden wins big in his NFL returnJon Gruden’s potential return to the NFL with the Raiders has the NFL world buzzing, but today Colin warned those that think he’ll return to the sidelines after a 9 year lay off and immediately re-establish the Raiders as Super Bowl contenders should pump the brakes.Even though Gruden has stayed “close to the game” during his coaching absence, the NFL is a completely different league than the one he last coached in, and being around the game isn’t the same as being in the fire. There are also numerous examples of coaches returning from broadcasting to coaching after long layoffs that have failed miserably.Darnold over Rosen for ClevelandThe upcoming NFL Draft picture became clearer last night when both Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen declared for the draft, just an hour apart. Colin thinks both made the right decision to go pro, and today he predicted how the Top 3 will play out.At #1, Sam Darnold is the perfect fit for the Browns. Rosen to the Giants at 2. And Saquon Barkley to take the pressure off Andrew Luck in Indy at 3.Guests: Lee Jenkins – SI Senior NBA Writer is in-studio talking Westbrook’s responsibility to recruit Paul George; and what he found out by interviewing Sam Darnold.Greg Cosell – NFL Films Senior Producer is in-studio talking Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen translating to the NFL; the most impressive thing about the Rams offense; and Cam’s unpredictability.Eric Dickerson – FS1 NFL Analyst and NFL Hall of Famer is in-studio talking college QB prospects; and why the Rams resting starters was the right move.last_img read more

A New Challenge to Disruption Theory and a Better Idea for Dealing

Posted on by

first_img 5 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. A few weeks ago an article appeared in The New Yorker  that has shaken the very foundation on which much current startup philosophy depends.  I tried and failed to do that more than 14 years ago but I am hoping that this article makes more progress. Before getting into that, let’s look at the idea, why it matters, how come Jill Lepore’s New Yorker article is causing such a stir and what I think is a better notion about tech innovation.Related: A Look at the Economy of the Future (Motiongraphic)The big theory of disruption holds sway. The idea in question, about disruption, belongs to Clayton Christensen, a Harvard Business School professor who introduced it in his 1997 book, The Innovator’s Dilemma.Disruption happens when a new product comes along that offers mediocre quality at a much lower price than the incumbent product that most customers use. Big companies enjoy fat profit margins from an incumbent product so they ignore the disruptive one, rather than embrace it. Eventually, the disruptive product gobbles up all the incumbent’s customers. And that puts the incumbent out of business. Christensen’s prescriptive for the incumbent was for it set up a separate subsidiary to develop disruptive technologies. He issued a warning to successful corporations: ”Lose at the low end today, lose at the high end tomorrow,” he said in an interview, The New York Times noted in 1999. His prescription for escaping that fate: ”Create a separate subsidiary; free it to attack the parent.”A Harvard professor of history, Lepore explained in her June 23 New Yorker article, “The Disruption Machine,” that this idea has taken on a cultlike following. She cited startup conferences where people will shout out the spelling of “disrupt” to become energized.Related: Is Competition a Catalyst for Innovation?Challenging the disruption model. Lepore then exposed Christensen’s flawed scholarship and flimsy examples. For example, Christensen had discussed how a disk-drive company, Seagate, had failed to adapt to a disruptive technology. Lepore pointed out that Seagate is now alive and prospering while the disrupters cited by Christensen have perished.Disclosure: Like Lepore, I used to work for Michael Porter, another Harvard Business School professor, and I chatted with her on the phone when trying to schedule meetings with him. Moreover, I met with Christensen in 1998 soon after my first book, The Technology Leaders, came out and he gave me a copy of The Innovator’s Dilemma. Two years after I met with Christensen I wrote an article that was a less-than-successful attempt to burst the disruption theory bubble, which has expanded exponentially. My January 2000 article for IDG’s Industry Standard, “The Dilemma of the Innovator’s Dilemma,” was critical of the idea of creating a separate subsidiary to manage disruptive technologies.Instead of setting up a separate subsidiary to manage disruptive technologies, I argued, CEOs should take charge of managing their company’s transition to a new technology — to create superior value for their customers — and integrate the new tech component into their organization as one of its core strengths.Christensen was livid about my article. One of my editors spent what seemed like an hour on the phone with Christensen and me, unsuccessfully trying to broker a truce.And in reading Christensen’s response in Bloomberg Businessweek to Lepore’s article, I see that she has been subjected to an even hotter blast of his fury. (For his part, Christensen believes Lepore did not read all his work.)And in this latest battle of words, I agree with Lepore. She criticized Christensen more for the examples he used to prove his case. She found his examples provided flimsy support and also cited his becoming involved with a failed investment fund whose strategy was to use his model to bet on stocks.To be clear, I think disruption often happens but it does not always wipe out incumbents and disruption does not always come from startups. I agree with Lepore in that disruption is becoming an irrational war whoop issued by startups. But what the startups don’t like to pound their chests about is that 99.99 percent of them fail. Therefore, their enthusiasm for disruption strikes me as a little desperate.Related: Keep Innovation Flowing as Your Startup GrowsExploring Netflix’s reinvention. Take a look at Netflix. A few years ago, its CEO, Reed Hastings, saw that consumers were spending more time watching videos on iPhones and other handheld devices. Netflix had already hastened the demise of retail video rental store chain, Blockbuster, by offering consumers a convenient and cheap DVD-by-mail service.But Hastings realized that unless Netflix offered an online streaming service, it would meet the same fate as Blockbuster had. So Hastings moved forward with a plan  – and in so doing, Netflix developed new corporate strengths – most notably the ability to create popular programs like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black.Christensen’s theory predicts that Netflix could only have accomplished this by running the online streaming project in an isolated subsidiary. In fact, Netflix’s success rested critically on Hastings’ direct leadership of this transformation.I hope Lepore is more effective than I was at bursting the disruption bubble. But I see no reason why managers can’t follow the approach I advocated 14 years ago that Netflix exemplifies so well.Related: 14 Books Every Entrepreneur Should Read in ’14  June 25, 2014last_img read more
