Prime minister Sheikh Hasina speaks at an Awami League meeting at its Bangabandhu Avenue central office. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday announced to celebrate the year of 2020 as the ‘Mujib Year’ across the country to mark the birth centenary of father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, according to UNB.She made the announcement in her introductory speech at a joint meeting of Awami League Advisory Council and Central Working Committee at party’s Bangabandhu Avenue central office.It was the first such meeting of the party at the newly constructed central office at Bangabandhu Avenue after its inauguration on 23 June.”Elaborate programmes will be taken to celebrate the birth centenary of the great leader as my government and party wants so,” Sheikh Hasina said.She said programmes will be taken at both government and party initiatives involving people from all walks of life, including leaders and workers of political and socio-cultural organisations, educationists, intellectuals, teachers, students, workers and professionals.The prime minister said she has already directed the cabinet secretary to undertake necessary measures to chalk out programmes on government initiatives to this end.On the occasion, various programmes like essay, art and cultural competitions and prize giving ceremonies will be held in educational institutions throughout the year of 2020 and those will continue until 26 March, 2021 — the golden jubilee year of the country’s independence, she added.Sheikh Hasina, also the AL chief, said the decision will be finalised after discussions with the party leaders.She said Awami League leaders and workers want to pay the debt of blood of the great leader through bringing smile to the faces of the poor and distressed people for whom he had sacrificed his life.The PM said the greatest Bangalee of all times had struggled for long 23 years to bring smile to people’s faces eliminating poverty and hunger and started rebuilding the war-ravaged country soon after the independence.Following his footprint, Sheikh Hasina said, her government implemented massive development programmes coming to power in 1996 and again in 2009, whereby it has been able to ensure food security, healthcare, education and other basic needs of people.As a result, Bangladesh is now advancing towards the path of materialising the dream of Bangabandhu as it is now on the highway of development and is recognised as a developing country, she said.Hasina regretted that a section of her political opponents who never wanted the country to be free from poverty and hunger termed Bangladesh’s graduation as a developing country as ‘ruination’.Pointing to the micro-credit system, she said the way of developing own fate with the money of the poor people against distributed micro-credits has now become limited.The prime minister observed that the poor are now getting the benefits of the government’s achievements like low inflation, high growth rate, increased power generation and other pro-people developments.”When the GDP rate is high with low inflation, its benefit will be distributed among all, including those living in rural areas,” she said.She vowed to maintain the ongoing development trend to establish Bangladesh as a country free from poverty and hunger by 2021 as well as a developed one by 2041.Meanwhile, Sheikh Hasina said steps have been taken to publish a book in 14 volumes on Bangabandhu based on the Pakistani intelligence report on his political activities from 1947 to 1971.She said the first volume is at the final stage, while the total volumes will be of 9,000 pages compiled from 40,000 pages of 47 files of the then Pakistani Intelligence Report.Two more books — one on the Agartala Conspiracy Case court proceedings having a number of volumes and another on his Bangabandhu’s to China in 1952– will also be published, the prime minister said.Talking about the history of Awami League, she said the history of AL and Bangladesh is intermingled. “Father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman wanted to build a poverty-and -hunger-free nation and we’re working on that tirelessly. We’ll build the nation so that the people of the country can move around the world keeping their head high,” she said.Hasina also said Bangladesh is now moving fast on the highway of development. “We’ve ensured education, health services and food security for all and we’re distributing textbooks free of cost and sending stipend money on mobile phones.”The prime minister said Bangladesh will move ahead and it will be a middle-income country by 2021 and a developed one by 2041.

Share APFILE – In this May 17, 2015, file photo, authorities investigate a shooting in the parking lot of Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas. A grand jury on Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015, returned indictments for engaging in organized criminal activity against 106 of the 177 bikers arrested following the deadly shootout, the McLennan County district attorney said. (AP Photo/Jerry Larson, File)Three members of the Bandidos motorcycle club were indicted on murder charges Wednesday stemming from a chaotic 2015 shooting that involved police and members of another biker club outside a restaurant in Waco, Texas.The indictments mark the first murder charges in the case, and more than 20 other bikers were re-indicted on new charges ranging from rioting to tampering with evidence. The lesser charges come just eight days before the statute of limitations on such crimes runs out.Police arrested nearly 200 bikers following the shooting at a Twin Peaks restaurant that left nine people dead and 20 injured. Investigators say the incident was sparked by rivalries between the Bandidos and Cossacks motorcycle clubs. Waco police officers monitoring the gathering also fired on the bikers.The murder charges were filed against Jeff Battey, a local sergeant-at-arms with the Bandidos, and two other club members: Ray Allen and Glenn Walker. Their attorneys didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment Wednesday from The Associated Press.Battey, a former Marine, and Allen were seen “triangulated” over Matthew Smith, a Cossacks member who later died at the scene from gunshot wounds, according to Waco police incident reports reviewed by the AP. Ballistics evidence also suggests Walker fired his weapon.Law enforcement evidence reviewed by the AP also showed that police officers killed at least two bikers. A grand jury cleared the officers of wrongdoing.Surveillance footage showed numerous bikers running from the scene and ducking for cover after gunshots rang out. A smaller number could be seen pointing and firing weapons, slinging a chain or participating in fistfights.Law enforcement officers recovered dozens of firearms, knives and other weapons from the restaurant and adjacent parking lot. Dash-cam video showed that officers indiscriminately organized many of the weapons into piles on the pavement and in the back of a police vehicle.All of the bikers arrested following the shooting were charged with engaging in organized criminal activity, a felony, with the underlying offenses of homicide and aggravated assault. They were held on $1 million bonds in county jail, and Battey was among the first to bail out.But prosecutors have dropped 154 of the initial 192 cases in the last four months, saying they wanted to focus on those who were “more culpable.”Only one biker — Jake Carrizal, a locomotive driver and the president of the Dallas chapter of the Bandidos — has been tried. His trial ended in a hung jury and a mistrial last fall, though he was among the bikers re-indicted on Wednesday. Carrizal is now facing a new charge of rioting.The county’s district attorney, Abel Reyna, didn’t return messages seeking more details about the indictments from the AP.Reyna said in February, when announcing the first round of disposed cases, that information gleaned during Carrizal’s trial was “invaluable” in his office’s decision to narrow the focus of its investigation.
This one’s for the art lovers. A solo show titled Play – A Series of the Captured Moments that displays paintings and prints by Priyanka Dua has been organised in the Capital that started off on 1 November at Vivanta by Taj. The paintings on display are a series of some significant moments Dua had which she’s playing as a reel of her real life. Dua says, ‘There are endless ideas which run through my mind with every new moment. Some of them stay with me and I start working on them reliving the experience. Every piece of work ever done by me stands for an emotion felt which started as an inspiration for me to create it’.She added, ‘Every new moment comes with a new emotion. I try and capture those emotions which all of us experience but are unaware of them consciously. I personally love capturing positive emotion as they make us aware of all the happiness around us. Regardless of gender, living or non-living, colour or black and white, my paintings are purely me and my way of expressing and sharing thoughts with the rest of the world.
July 7, 2008 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global For a long time now, software-as-a-service companies have been championing the benefits of no-software and minimal computing infrastructure on the desktop. These companies see a world where the desktop computer is less significant and computing power has moved to powerful internet-accessible servers. In their ideal world, cell phones, smartphones, internet-enabled TVs and other devices replace computers. On the other hand, traditional software vendors continue to champion the importance of traditional software and operating systems on computers and other devices. Now these two sides have started to trade places.The benefits of hosted applications, compared to traditional software, are that there is no software to install and the software and data are easily available by any authorized user with an internet connection. The software-as-a-service companies are beginning to enable their applications to be used with no internet connection, while traditional software companies are increasingly enabling more and more of their applications to be used online.As you consider what type of software your company should use, the importance of access to the software and data if there is no internet connection should be considered.Traditional software has the benefit of giving you physical access to the software and data. If your connection to the internet goes down, you can keep working normally because your individual computers can access your server where the data (and possibly the software itself) are located via a traditional corporate network. If you are using a hosted application and the internet connection goes down, you can’t access the hosted application or data until the internet connection is restored.With a hybrid model of local data, synchronized to remote servers via the internet, you have the best of both worlds. While the internet connection is working, as it will be in most cases, you can access your data via the internet. If the internet connection should go down or you’re somewhere with no internet connectivity, you can still get work done.For many hosted application vendors, using their products in an offline mode is not an option, but you’ll see more and more of these vendors offering offline modes.As you consider the importance of an offline version for your hosted applications, consider the following guidelines:How important is the application that is being served via the internet?How often has the provider’s connection been working properly? As close to 100 percent is what you should look for.How reliable is your business internet connection? Does it go down frequently? Should you purchase a backup internet connection?If the online application does go down, what happens? What are your contingency plans?As more and more businesses use software via the internet, a stable internet connection and contingency plans are important considerations.Ramon Ray is Entrepreneur.com’s “Tech Basics” columnist and editor of Smallbiztechnology.com.
