Leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Friday accused the West Bengal police of “arresting” party spokesperson Samanay Bandopadhyay for circulating posts critical of the Trinamool Congress government.‘Arrested from home’ Family members and party sources said that Mr. Bandopadhyay was “arrested” by a team of Purulia district police from his home in North 24 Parganas district on Thursday evening. The West Bengal police and Purulia district police neither confirmed nor denied having arrested or detained Mr. Bandopadhyay. “We will get back to you,” a senior official of Purulia police said when enquired about the alleged arrest. Mr. Bandopadhyay is known for his staunch criticism of the TMC government through his social media posts. “The arrest of Samanay Bandopadhyay is a classic example of intolerance of the highest order. Mr. Bandopadhyay was arrested from his home for criticising the State government. Such blatant attack on the freedom of speech and expression by the government will not stop us from protesting against the ruling dispensation. We condemn such undemocratic assault on the freedom of speech and political terrorism unleashed by the Mamata Banerjee government,” Mr. Chowdhury said. Reacting to the allegations, senior TMC leader and party Chief Whip in State Assembly Nirmal Ghosh said, “Mr. Bandopadhyay has been arrested as there were several criminal charges against him. It has nothing to do with criticism of the State government.” The BJP leadership also slammed the State government over the arrest. The CPI(M) and Congress activists on Friday staged a protest outside Khardah police station against the alleged arrest. Mr. Bandopadhyay’s house at Sodepur falls under the jurisdiction of Khardah police station. The incident is reminiscent of the arrest of Jadavpur University professor Ambikesh Mahapatra in April 2012 for posting cartoons of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on the Internet.
enforced Srinagar, Sep 20 (PTI) The business community in Kashmir today warned of snapping commercial ties with Jammu-based traders if an economic blockade is enforced in the Valley as was threatened by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). “We want to send a clear message to our Jammu counterparts to explain their position on VHPs statement. Do they want to do business with us or support radical groups like VHP which are hell-bent on dividing the state on communal lines,” Yasin Khan, president of Kashmir Traders and Manufactures Federation (KTMF), said. VHP had on Friday threatened to launch a massive agitation and enforce an economic blockade in Jammu and Kashmir if the assembly allowed a discussion to revoke provisions criminalizing bovine slaughter and sale of beef in the state. Khan said the business community in Jammu must clear its stand on whether they supported VHP on the matter. “The ball is in the court of the Jammu business community. We want them to go public on the issue,” he said. Khan, who is also chairman of Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA), said if an economic blockade was enforced, they would use Muzaffarabad?Srinagar route for business activities. “We wont hesitate to use Muzaffarabad?Srinagar route for trade so that Kashmir does not remain dependent on Jammu,” he said.

United are the favourites in the group, they are a fantastic team and have done a lot of good transfers as well this season.”For us they are top of the group, but it is a very tough group with some really good teams.”Wicky was promoted to the first-team job in July after looking after the club’s Under-18s and U-21s over the last four years, and he is eager to test himself against a coach of Mourinho’s calibre.He added: “It’s my first job as a professional coach with a professional team, so to be able to coach in the Champions League is an amazing thing. Not every coach can live that and that is why it will be special for me as well.”I am looking forward to all these games and facing a manager with the record of Jose Mourinho is very special for me.”

We are kind of getting back to where I think we should be performance-wise, but then you’ve got to turn performances into results. I think we’ve actually played better than we did today but the basics were done very well.“The quality of the shape, the importance of the details, the resilience that the side showed many times – those features are coming back into the side, and I’ve always said that gives you a base to work from. We still know we can play better with the ball, that technically we can find better moments. We had four or five during the game, and two or three particularly second half that were clear breakaway situations, on the counter, where we should do better, and then we kill the game off.“I think there’s a mixture of joy at a win but also a bit of relief because we’ve been on a tough run, and everyone feels it. The crowd felt it right at the end when they were putting corners in and spinning it in the box from everywhere, that bit of nervousness. But you get that one closed off like we did and then see what comes next. We’ve ground one out today.”The goal came when Ben Mee sent a header towards Mat Ryan in the visitors’ goal, Brighton attempted to clear and the ball came to Cork. The midfielder unleashed a first-time strike and saw it go in via Tarkowski’s chest.Early in the second half Burnley had appeals for a penalty rejected by the referee, Martin Atkinson, after Yves Bissouma had his boot high as he made a clearance and Phil Bardsley went down. Dyche said: “We still can’t get that elusive penalty. I don’t know what incident is going to have to occur, but when it does, I hope it’s something that really counts for us.

Bruno gets done on the run by Robbie Brady and body-checks him. That was a maybe, but you’ve seen them given. The one on Bardo – he’s got kicked in the head more or less. There’s no malice, by the way, I must make that clear. But anywhere on the pitch that is dangerous play. For me that has to be a penalty. We’ve got to start getting a fair share. We haven’t had one in 58 [games].”Burnley did have some fortune and not only with their goal. The Brighton substitute Jürgen Locadia failed to make the most of a great opportunity in the 83rd minute as he headed over the bar.Chris Hughton, whose Brighton side dropped a place to 11th, said: “We were the better team. It was the type of game where you felt there weren’t going to be many chances, up against a team that are quite direct. It was a scrappy goal we conceded and I thought we had the best chance of the game through Locadia. I thought we were the side who looked more likely to score. So, yes, disappointed.

Shakhtar Donetsk fought back to beat Roma 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday.The Ukrainian side won all three of their group games in Kharkiv and maintained that fine record to win just a third Champions League knockout game in their history – remarkably all have come against the Giallorossi.Eusebio Di Francesco’s side were surprise winners of a group including Chelsea and Atletico Madrid and they impressed in the first half, with Shakhtar perhaps slow to start in just their second game back from a long mid-season break.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Having polished the likes of Mohamed Salah and Miralem Pjanic in recent years, Roma look to have unearthed another gem in Cengiz Under and the 20-year-old Turk put the Giallorossi ahead with his fifth goal in four games shortly before the break.Shakhtar’s first-half attacking efforts had amounted to little, but Facundo Ferreyra dragged them level soon after the break with a fine individual goal and Fred turned the game around with a picture-perfect free-kick.Roma were similarly impressive at the Stadio Olimpico earlier in the competition, keeping clean sheets in each of their group games, and they will hope that helps them turn the tie around on March 13.The moment Fred beat international team-mate Alisson Becker #UCL pic.twitter.com/V4N0w6YVsk— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) February 21, 2018Fred scuffed a back-post chance for Shakhtar and Edin Dzeko saw a bundled effort saved as both teams began at breakneck tempo, though Roma soon began to exert a greater threat on the break.Kostas Manolas ought to have done better than heading wide when unmarked from a corner and Dzeko too faltered when played in by Diego Perotti, failing to aim a weak sidefoot finish out of Andriy Pyatov’s reach.Shakhtar based the bulk of their attacks out wide and, though they regularly found room behind Alessandro Florenzi and Aleksandar Kolarov, the final ball was often lacking and Fred summed up their frustrated efforts just after the half-hour with a wild 25-yard effort after the Serie A side had clogged up the route to goal.Roma slowed the pace to exert more control and took a deserved lead five minutes before the break as Dzeko neatly turned into space and played a piercing ball behind Ismaily, which Under raced onto and finished beyond Pyatov to continue his fine run in front of goal.2 – Cengiz Ünder (20yy, 222dd) is the 2nd youngest goalscorer for @OfficialASRoma in UCL history after Antonio Cassano (20yy, 82dd). Wonder.— OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) February 21, 2018Shakhtar hit back less than six minutes into the second half, Ferreyra had been previously starved of service, so took it upon himself to latch onto Yaroslav Rakitskiy’s hopeful punt, nutmeg Manolas and finish calmly beyond Alisson.As Shakhtar surged forwards, the Brazilian goalkeeper had to be on his toes to deny Marlos from close-range before he pulled off a spectacular flying stop when Taison sent a wicked shot arrowing for the top-right corner.But there was absolutely nothing Alisson could do to stop Roma falling behind in the 71st minute as Fred sent a 25-yard set-piece fizzing over the wall and into the net via a pleasing kiss off the crossbar.Shakhtar came within inches of scoring the game’s fourth goal in stoppage time, but Bruno Peres somehow deflected Ferreyra’s effort over the bar while sat on the line – an intervention that could prove to be crucial. read more

Islamabad: A small military plane of the Pakistan Army crashed into a residential area in the garrison city of Rawalpindi early Tuesday, killing 18 people, including five military personnel, officials said. The Pakistan Army Aviation aircraft on a routine training flight crashed in the suburbs of Mora Kalu village, killing 12 civilians and five crew members and destroying five to six houses, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) – the media wing of the Pakistan Army. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details It said that all five crew members, including two pilots, were killed in the crash. However, a local rescue spokesman said that 18 dead bodies were brought to hospital that included 13 civilians and five crew members. District commissioner Rawalpindi Ali Randhawa told the media that the incident occurred between 2:30 to 2:40 am when a small military plane which was on a training mission crashed in Rawalpindi. Rescue teams of 1122 and Pakistan Army immediately reached the site and started the rescue operation. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The ISPR said that rescue officials had extinguished the fire caused by the crash and moved the injured to various hospitals of Rawalpindi, where paramedics said most of the victims were badly burnt. At least 12 people wee injured in the accident, officials said. The cause of the crash is yet to be ascertained and the rescue operation was completed by the morning, they said. The village where the plane crashed is located close to the posh area of Bahria Town. Soon after the crash, a massive fire broke out that engulfed several houses in the locality. Some of the locals have also uploaded pictures of the burning houses on social media. President Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed their grief over the loss of lives in the aircraft crash. Pakistan has a poor air safety track record, with plane and helicopter crashes occurring frequently over the years. In 2016, a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane carrying 48 people, including famous pop singer-turned-Islamic preacher Junaid Jamshed, his wife and Deputy Commissioner Chitral Osama Warraich, crashed and burst into flames in a hilly area near Abbottabad after facing engine problems. In 2012, a Bhoja Airline plane, a Boeing 737 carrying 121 passengers and six crew members, crashed near Islamabad just just before touchdown. The worst aviation tragedy on Pakistani soil came in July 2010 when an Airbus 321 passenger jet operated by the private airline Airblue crashed into hills overlooking Islamabad. The flight was coming from Karachi. All 152 people on board were killed in the accident, which occurred amid heavy rain and poor visibility. Another deadly civilian plane crash involving a Pakistani jet occurred in 1992 when a PIA Airbus A300 crashed into a cloud-covered hillside on its approach to the Nepalese capital Kathmandu, killing 167 people.
MONTREAL — Transcontinental Inc. reported Thursday it had $36.8 million of adjusted earnings in its fiscal second quarter, an increase of 12.9% from a year earlier and ahead of analyst estimates.Its adjusted profit per share was 47 cents, up from 42 cents a year, and four cents per share above estimates compiled by Thomson Reuters.The Montreal-based printing and publishing company says its revenue was down 3.8% from a year earlier, dropping to $498.2 million from $517.8 million, mainly because of soft advertising sales.Under standard accounting, Transcontinental had $34.7 million of net earnings or 45 cents per share for the three months ended April 30, up from $25.3 million or 32 cents per share in the second quarter of 2013.The Montreal-based printing and publishing company has said it completed a previously announced acquisition of 74 weekly newspapers from Sun Media, part of Quebecor Inc. Transcontinental agreed last week to put 34 newspapers up for sale for about two months to win approval from the federal Competition Bureau.During the fiscal second quarter, Transcontinental announced it would receive a $31 million payment after agreeing to adjust a printing contract with Montreal La Presse, Canada’s largest French-language newspaper. The contract, originally signed in 2003, still expires in 2018 but Transcontinental had agreed to price reductions on future services and changes that allow the paper’s owner to reduce the amount of material printed.La Presse is owned by Gesca Ltd., which is part of the Power group of companies and a part-owner of The Canadian Press.Transcontinental also announced on May 5 that it will begin printing the Montreal Gazette starting in August under an outsourcing agreement with Postmedia Network Canada Corp., which also published the National Post and other major city newspapers in Ontario and Western Canada.

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, the leading engineering, construction and service provider for industrial plants and systems, and Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich have agreed to cooperate on the further development of the EIRICH TowerMill, a highly energy-efficient agitated media mill for the wet grinding of ores and minerals. The aim of the partnership is to build high-capacity, powerful TowerMills capable of delivering high throughputs even for fine and superfine grinding.Uwe Schuh, head of Grinding Technology at Industrial Solutions: “We need to keep pace with the complex requirements of our mining industry customers so that we can continue to offer them high-efficiency ore processing solutions in the future. That’s why we are combining the expertise of Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich as the patent holder with our long-standing experience in the development, construction, logistics, installation and service of such large-scale machines.”Technological requirements in mines are growing ever more complex. Mineral deposits around the world contain ever-decreasing ore grades combined with increasingly finegrained orebodies. The partnership is thyssenkrupp and EIRICH’s response to the rising demand for grinding equipment capable of achieving a high degree of mineral liberation at ever higher throughput rates. Stephan Eirich, Managing Director of Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich: “We have always developed and improved our mills. Utilising the significant plant engineering experience of thyssenkrupp will now enable us to expand our portfolio to include large machines with significantly higher throughputs to meet changing market demands.”EIRICH acquired the license to market TowerMills from the Japanese Kubota Corporation in 1999. Today the company supplies TowerMills of various sizes up to a power rating of 1,500 hp. Worldwide over 40 mills with a combined power rating of 26 MW have been installed. Together with thyssenkrupp, the expanded product line will include units of up to 6,000 hp to guarantee the processing of fine and ultrafine grained minerals of <20 μm at high throughput rates. “EIRICH TowerMills are an important addition to thyssenkrupp’s existing one-stop product portfolio, which ranges from primary crushers to ultrafine grinding mills.”
Father Joe’s Villages opens more temporary beds for homeless during rainstorm January 9, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Father Joe’s Villages Tuesday announced a temporary increase in the number of shelter beds it is providing as the first rainstorm of the season continues.During especially cold and wet weather, Father Joe’s will expand its overnight services in partnership with the city Housing Commission. Its East Village building at 1501 Imperial Ave. has space to provide shelter for 250 people.The nonprofit opened its doors Monday night to provide cots for the homeless and also provided them with dinner and breakfast, according to Deacon Jim Vargas, chief executive of the nonprofit.“Last night we were blessed to have 99 individuals here during the evening hours, a number of them were families and children,” Vargas said. “We will continue to do that throughout this winter season when the need arises.”The shelter will be open again Tuesday night, and Father Joe’s officials expect to offer the increased number of beds several more times during the rainy season.The shelter will generally open when it falls under 50 degrees at night or if there is a significant amount of rain, Vargas said.“The reality is we need to do better with those of our neighbors who happen to be on the streets,” Vargas said. “We as a community really need to come together and provide more housing” on a permanent basis.The nonprofit already provides shelter to some 2,100 people in San Diego each night, officials said.

It’s that time of year again. That’s right—turkey time.I sat down at my desk this afternoon and began opening the stacks of magazines that are delivered here to the FOLIO: office daily. First on the pile was Condé Nast’s Bon Appetit, with a delicious-looking turkey resting gently in a roasting pan on the cover. Next came the herb-crusted masterpiece on the cover of American Express Publishing’s Food & Wine. Then I unwrapped the new issue of Martha Stewart Living, with its “simple and sensational” bird with glazed carrots and roasted vegetables, accompanied by a sweet potato casserole. OK, I can’t go on. I’m starting to salivate. Newsstands this time every year are overflowing with magazine covers featuring this succulent bird. But the cover that takes the cake (and the cranberry sauce, and the stuffing) this year is Hearst’s Food Network Magazine. The November issue features what the publisher says is the “first” triple cover in the U.S. (go on, share my hunger pangs—see the covers below). The first cover features the turkey dinner while cover two shows side dishes and the third follows up with dessert. The entire cover package was sponsored by Cargill’s Truvia, a natural sweetener.If that wasn’t already too much, the issue has nearly 140 recipes for creating more than 288,000 variations of the culinary wonder known as Thanksgiving dinner.Have these covers triggered your taste buds? Not to worry. Turkey day is only a little over a month away.

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina receives a bouquet of flowers from retired police officers at a function at her official residence Ganabhaban on Thursday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami have worked out two plans ahead of the election — killing police officers and woo them through bribes.”They’ve chalked out these two plans. There’s a criminal in London who sends plans,” she said while addressing retired senior police officers at a function at her official residence Ganabhaban in the city.A total of 88 police officers from IGP (inspector general of police) rank to ASP (additional superintendent of police) at the function extended their support to Awami League for the 11th national election slated for 30 December.Of the retired police officers, 15 are ex-IGPs, one officer of Police Services of Pakistan (PSP), 19 additional IGPs, 24 DIGs, 3 additional DIGs, 11 AIGs and SPs and 15 additional SPs.Pointing at BNP and Jamaat, Sheikh Hasina, also the president of Awami League, said now they have a target to kill some senior police officials ahead of the election.About the violence and arson attacks unleashed by BNP-Jamaat during the last national election, she said the killers and arson attackers burnt and beat up police members to death mercilessly. “It can’t be thought how much dangerous deeds they can commit.”At the beginning of the function PSP officer Mahbub Uddin Ahmed, Bir Bikram and four ex-IGPs, including AKM Shahidul Haque, on behalf of retired police officers, greeted the prime minister presenting her a bouquet.Former IGP AKM Shahidul Haque conducted the function while several ex-IGPs spoke on the occasion expressing their solidarity with AL in the election.The 15 former IGPs are AT Ahammedul Haque Chowdhury, Kutubur Rahman, Md Shamsher Alam, AKM Enayet Ullah Dewan, Md Abdur Rouf, Md Awlad Hossain Mia, Kazi Bazlur Rahman, Abul Kashem Hawlader, Md Abdul Hannan, Md Ruhul Amin, M Sanaul Haque, Md Nurul Anwar and AKM Shahidul Haq, Md Mominullah Patwari (ex-police officer and former secretary) and Mohammad Abdul Hannan Khan (coordinator with status of IGP).The 19 former additional IGPs include Md Sarwar Hossain, Mohammad Abdus Sattar, Md Abdur Rahim Khan, Md Nurul Alam, Md Ali Imam Chowdhury, Md Fazlul Haque, Md Abdur Rahim, Khandakar Mozammel Haq, Golam Mostafa, Md Lutfor Rahman Mia, Md Matiur Rahman, Md Abdul Mannan, Md Abdul Mabud, Amulya Bhushan Barua, Md Nazmul Haque, Fatema Begum, Binoy Krinshna Bala, Nowsher Ali and Md Abu Hanif.The 24 retired deputy inspectors general include Dewan Habibullah, Md Shafiq Ullah, Khandakar Saheb Ali, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Md Mokhlesur Rahman, Shah Alam Sikder, PR Barua, Md Tofazzal Hossain, Md Waliur Rahman, Nibaran Kumar Chanda, Mostafa Zamal Uddin al Azad, Kazi Anwar Hossain, Md Altaf Hossain Mollah, Chowdhury Ahsanul Kabir, Md Sazzad Hossain, Mostaq Hossain Khan, Shafiqur Rahman, Moqbul Hossain Bhuiyan, Md Obaidullah, Muhammad Abdur Rahim, SM Mahfuzul Haq Nuruzzamn and Moniruzzaman.

More headaches for Eurostar travellers returning back to work from holiday celebrations in the United Kingdom could take place as severe weather could see the same issues which afflicted the train company over Christmas.Already four services were cancelled on Thursday, as Eurostar warns travellers on other scheduled services that there could be “possible delay” due to “severe weather in the UK and France”.“For Friday 8 January and the weekend, Eurostar expects to operate near normal services. There may be a small number of planned cancellations depending on the severity of the weather,” said Eurostar in a statement.This new incident comes just as the company was starting to recover from its pre-Christmas cancellations which saw thousands stranded after “fluffy” snow melted and is believed to have short-circuited trains passing through the Channel Tunnel.Earlier in the week Richard Brown, Eurostar CEO, issued an open letter of apology to the travel trade whose clients had been affected in the disruptions.“I would like to offer my most heartfelt apology to all of our customers and any of your travellers who were inconvenienced as a result of events last week,” said Mr Brown.“I fully appreciate that this situation, particularly for those travellers involved in Friday and Saturday’s train failures, was very difficult and I would like to assure you that I will do everything in my power to ensure that this kind of incident will not happen again.”Ironically in the open letter Mr Brown notes that all passengers travelling for Christmas had now all been accommodated and that Eurostar’s services had returned to normal. <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/29808/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Source = e-Travel Blackboard: W.X
Bahrain Air has entered voluntary liquidation and suspended all operations after sustaining ‘considerable financial losses’.A notice on the airline’s website explained, during Bahrain’s 2011 State of National Emergency the carrier was instructed to suspend flights to several destinations, an order that has cost the airline BD 4.5 million in lost revenues over the last three months.Although a Royal Decree on land, sea and air transportation advising all affected parties to be fairly compensated by the government, the carrier says it has received no compensation.Meanwhile, the carrier’s shareholders have advised they will not support the airline financially and negotiations with the Minister of Transportation to loosen flight restrictions have failed.Despite the airline’s situation, the carrier has been advised to make immediate payment on past government debts or face closure, which effectively ‘strangled’ the carrier and its ability to “generate the necessary revenues both to make these payments and to sustain long term profitability”.“We have created a proud legacy, with one of the best records for on time performance and value for money in the region,” the airline’s notice read.“We would like to thank our staff for their hard working and lasting devotion to the cause of Bahrain Air.”Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Bahrain Air suspends all operations.
