Soon, the team from the local police station and the Fire department reached the spot and tried to rescue the injured.

They have been identified as Pankaj and Raju. They all are members of Housekeeping staff of the restaurant,” said a senior police officer. Manual scavenging –a practice by which workers enter sewers and septic tanks to clean out excreta –has historically been connected to Dalit communities, making its prevalence another egregious case of caste discrimination. Though India banned the practice in 1993 and the law was amended to expand its ambit in 2013 , manual scavenging continues across the country. In 2018 alone, more than 10 people died in Delhi cleaning septic tanks. This February, the Delhi government flagged off a fleet of 200 sewer-cleaning machines, with the aim of eradicating manual scavenging in the Capital. “We have registered a case against the accused under relevant sections and the investigation has begun,” said a senior police officer.last_img read more

Financial and Nonfinancial Corporations Main Driver of Moroccan Economy in 2016

Rabat – In 2016, financial and nonfinancial corporations were the first producer of national wealth, according to the recent report released by the High Commissioner for Planning (HCP).Tackling the institutional sector accounts for 2016, the HCP’s recent report noted that these companies have slightly improved their contribution to gross domestic product (GDP) from 42.9 percent in 2015 to 43.2 percent 2016.In addition to increasing the gross national income by 14.9 percent, these companies contributed by 53.6 percent to national savings and by 57 percent to investment (gross fixed capital formation), according to the public body. However, the contribution of households and non-profit institutions serving households (NPISHs) and that of general government registered, by contrast, a decrease of 0.4 percent and 0.1 percent respectively compared to 2015. According to the HCP, they stood respectively at 29.3 percent and 15.8 percent of the national GDP and are, respectively, down 0.4 points and 0.1 points from 2015.According to the data analyzed, the Gross National Income Available (GNI) has, for its part, increased by 3.2 percent in 2016 to reach MAD 1076.9 billion. “This improvement is due to the increase in gross disposable income of 6.8 percent for general government, 3.1 percent for corporations (financial and non-financial) and 2.1 percent for households and NPISHs,” explained the HCP.The public body added that the institutional sector contributions to GNI stood at 62.5 percent for households and NPISHs, 22.6 percent for general government, and 14.9 percent for corporations (with 2.6 percent for financial corporations).The analysis also shows that households’ gross disposable income (RBD) increased by 2.1 percent to MAD 665.1 billion in 2016, 87.6 percent of which was spent on household, final consumption, compared to 86.4 percent in 2015, said the HCP.Under these conditions, the analysts of the HCP established that the savings rate of households fell by 1.2 point, to stand at 12.9 percent in 2016.In relation to the population, they estimated that gross disposable income reached MAD 19,286 in 2016, up 1 percent from last year, and that “the increase in consumer prices being 1.6 percent in 2016, the power of household purchasing has therefore deteriorated by 0.6 percent.”As for gross fixed capital formation (GFCF). It stood at MAD 306.9 billion in 2016, up 9.5 percent from 2015.For the High Commission, there is no doubt that companies (financial and non-financial) remain the largest investor in Morocco, with a contribution increasing from 55.2 percent of GFCF in 2015 to 57 percent in 2016. On the other hand, household and government contributions declined from 26.9 percent to 25.9 percent and from 17.6 percent to 16.8 percent, respectively.“National savings, for its part, stood at MAD 292.7 billion in 2016, an improvement of 2.8 percent. Its breakdown by institutional sector shows that financial and non-financial corporations contribute by 53.6 percent, followed by households and NPISHs by 30.2 percent and general government for 16.2 percent.”In its note, the HCP also indicated that the nation’s financing requirement stood at MAD 43.2 billion in 2016 and represented 4.2 percent of GDP instead of 2 percent a year earlier.According to the explanations of the High Commission, this situation is mainly attributable to “the sharp increase of MAD 17.8 billion in the financing needs of non-financial corporations to reach MAD 54.1 billion in 2016.”On the other hand, the HCP noted that the financing of the public administrations fell by MAD 5.6 billion to represent MAD 9.4 billion. While the financing capacity of households has experienced, for its part, “a decline of MAD 10.4 billion and that of financial companies MAD 976 million, to stand respectively at  5.5 and MAD 14.7 billion in 2016” read more

Pakistan to sell JF17 aircraft to Sri Lanka

Phasing out its older Dassault Mirage III/5s and Chinese F-7Ps fighters, the PAF reportedly plans to induct at least 250 JF-17s. By contrast, China’s People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) does not fly the JF-17. Immediately after the visit AM Bulathsinhala was invited to send an evaluation team of technicians and pilots to PAC’s Kamra facilities near Islamabad, where the JF-17 is produced. The SLAF – which already flies several other Chinese-made aircraft types – is currently looking to upgrade its fighter capabilities. At present these rely on the Israel Aircraft Industries Kfir, which served as the workhorse of SLAF ground attack operations in the 1983-2009 civil war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).Currently the JF-17 is flown only by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF), with the first squadron of Block 1 aircraft becoming operational in 2010. In late December 2015, PAC rolled out the 16th of a planned total of 50 Block 2 aircraft to complete the PAF’s fourth JF-17 squadron in service. Pakistan is expected to secure an agreement for the sale of the JF-17 Thunder Aircraft during Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s visit in Sri Lanka in the first week of January 2016, IHS Jane’s Defence Weekly reported.JF-17 Thunder is a third-generation fighter co-produced by Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) and China’s Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation (CAC). The prime minister’s upcoming talks in Colombo follow a mid-November visit to Pakistan by Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) commander Air Marshal Gagan Bulathsinhala during which the JF-17 was showcased by the Pakistanis. read more

Kate knows when to hold em

first_imgWhile residents of flood ravaged Queensland have been dealt a particularly bad hand in recent weeks, Kate Giouzellis has cashed the chips from her lucky poker hand into flood relief funds. Giouzellis was the winner of the Crown Aussie Millions poker charity fundraiser two Wednesdays ago, which saw poker enthusiasts, celebrities and high rollers turning their sport into charity. The tournament raised just under $50,000, Media Relations Manager for Crown Gaming and Corporate Natasha Stipanov said. “Any other money raised from the night ‘Celebrity Poker Challenge’, will be donated to The Shane Warne Foundation who will then work with Variety – The Children’s Charity, to assist children who have been affected by the Queensland Flood Disaster,” Ms Stipanov said. The Variety club will identify the flood damage to special schools and primary schools in the affected areas and then work with the schools to look at replacing playgrounds etc. Variety will also identify children who have lost items such as bikes, wheelchairs, walking frames and any other similar items, Ms Stipanov said. The Texas Hold ‘Em charity event, held each year in Melbourne’s Crown Casino’s studio 3, is the introduction to the high stakes Crown Aussie Millions tournament, one of the biggest poker events in the world. Many professional poker players enter this event after the world series in Las Vegas, Giouzellis said, adding that out of four tables of 24 players, there were mostly professionals and poker celebrities.“We played in partners, in 15 minute intervals. I’d never played that way but it was good because it makes you consider someone else,” Giouzellis said. Giouzellis, who has played “a bit” of poker before, mainly in womens tournaments at Crown, Shane Warne Foundation and charity matches, also recently played in Las Vegas, but insists poker is “just a hobby”. “I started a couple of years ago just having fun with friends and family. I had a few little wins, played a little online and then got more and more into it,” she said. Giouzellis, who won the tournament with a pair of fives, said bluffing and knowing when to raise are essential. “I love the fact you can make something out of two cards and make a hand out of something that’s usually nothing,” she said. “The key is where you raise it and how you get the rest of the table in, and where,” she added. There were some pretty tough opponents on the night, Giouzellis said. “There was one girl who has won the Millions series before, she was ruthless, and she’s notorious for knocking people out, so it was pretty full-on when I knocked her out of the competition,” she said. The beauty of poker is that you never know where the game will take you, Giouzellis said. “I kind of felt like I was having fun, I felt confident, but then anything can happen.” Giouzellis said the key to poker is keeping your eyes on the prize. “This kind of reinforces that if I can win, anyone can win, but it’s definitely a game of concentration, and a couple of champagnes helps!” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Parents petition to change name of schools mascot that sounds like male

first_img(WSVN) – Parents in one Utah town are petitioning to change the name of their new high school’s mascot because it sounds like male anatomy.When Farmington High School opens in 2018, their mascot will be known as “The Phoenix.” But parents are urging the Davis School District to reconsider the name because when pluralized, some say it would sound like “penises” and lead to crude jokes.Kyle Fraughton, a parent of students who will attend the school, joined his neighbors to practice cheering for the new team.The result, they say, raised eyebrows.The group tried cheering for “Phoenixes,” but the plural form didn’t sound right, Fraughton said.“I looked on Google and a couple hits down I saw that the plural of phoenix was either phoenixes or phoenices,” Kyle Fraughton told The Salt Lake Tribune. “I have no interest in my daughter or my son playing sports and getting referred to as something like a penis.”Fraughton started a petition to change the name, writing, “We were horrified to hear that the phonetics of the word Phoenices are far too close to the word penises. I don’t mean to be crass, but don’t want there to be confusion around the point I am trying to make.” According to the school district, the mascot’s name was selected by students who will be attending the school next fall. The name beat out “Farmers” and “Eagles.”The school’s Principal Richard Swanson told the newspaper that the word would remain singular and not pluralized.“We are one. We are The Phoenix,” Swanson said.Parents, including Fraughton, feel Swanson’s stance will be viewed differently by rival high schools, especially at sporting events.More than 2,600 people so far have signed the petition supporting a name change.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

MA Outlook for 2008

first_imgDoes that mean multiples paid for smaller titles and companies will skyrocket? Not likely. Multiples will probably hover in the same range-four to seven times adjusted cash flow-even though demand is expected to tick upward. Buyers remain cautious, even skittish, and the smaller the deal, the more challenging it will be to close the transaction.Sweet Spot ScarcityMeanwhile, sellers with revenues between $10 million and $20 million with good earnings remain in a very strong position. However, acquisition opportunities in this sweet spot are scarce. Hence, the renewed focus on strategic acquisitions under $10 million. The operative word: Strategic. One caveat, however, is that deals at the lower end of the scale are most vulnerable to whims of the bank lending climate.If you are a publisher with revenues at the lower end of the spectrum, 2008 could be an optimum time to cash in your chips. Here are some of the factors buyers will be examining carefully-and which will have a big influence on whether your properties sell at the higher end or the lower end of the multiples scale:Content remains king. A superb editorial product serving a growing market continues to be a key factor in determining value. Buyers will be looking at content, in all its forms and iterations, as the avenue to enhancing brand awareness, market presence, and profits.A strong management team is vital. Buyers tend to leave top management in place and fund growth initiatives with a proven workforce.Well developed online initiatives. These will be valued in addition to targeting leading magazines in growing markets. Operating a magazine-based Web site is no longer enough. Buyers will measure value against the presence of a host of creative e-services that engage reader and advertiser alike. A successful events division will further increase value. The ideal acquisition candidate will offer the “Golden Trifecta” of communications: Print, online and events.Higher frequencies sell more frequently. Buyers favor print titles with publishing frequencies of monthly or greater. Less-than-monthly publications are viewed as less likely to command reader share-of-mind, even with strong Internet offerings.Numbers remain critical. One factor that won’t change in 2008 or any year is that deals of any size will be largely numbers-driven. Buyers will look closely at sales and earnings history, and although they will not pay a premium for future growth potential, they will indeed favor properties trending upward. Sellers are cautioned not to inflate the bottom line by slashing customary expenses or failing to reinvest in the product. Savvy buyers will see through the guise and instead base financial performance-and, hence, value-on industry norms. This is especially true with the under-$2 million publishers. Operating “lean and mean” is not necessarily an advantage when you put your company or title on the market.Michael D. Kreiter is director at W.B.

House Committee Votes to Raise Spending Caps Bill Unlikely to Move Further

first_img ADC AUTHOR The House Budget Committee advanced legislation Wednesday that would raise statutory spending caps for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. It would allow for $733 billion in defense spending for next year and $749 billion the following year.Three Democrats joined all Republicans opposing the measure, showing the progressive-moderate split in the Democratic caucus that makes the legislation’s fate uncertain on the House floor, where it may not even come up for a vote.The Senate is also unlikely to consider it.House and Senate leaders have talked about finding a bipartisan deal to raise the spending caps, but the White House has so far resisted a deal, instead moving some of its $750 billion defense spending request to the overseas war account, which is not subject to spending caps.The Republican-led Senate Budget Committee passed a budget resolution along party lines that would cut defense spending to $643 billion for fiscal year 2020.last_img read more

CJI proposes happiness classes in judicial academies schools

first_imgNew Delhi: Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on Wednesday said that the judicial academies and other schools across the country can also have happiness classes like Delhi government schools. Speaking at the concluding ceremony of Delhi government’s 15-day long ‘happiness utsav’ to mark the first year of the implementation of happiness curriculum in its schools, the CJI said, “As the chief justice of the country, I was thinking yesterday, if I have a happy lot of people in this country, my problem of litigation will be over.

Test and control your monitor with softMCCS

first_imgTest and control your monitor with softMCCS by Martin Brinkmann on May 08, 2016 in Software – Last Update: May 08, 2016 – 8 commentsSoftMCCS is a free program for Windows devices that lets you test, diagnose and control a computer monitor connected to the PC.Apart from revealing detailed information about the computer monitor and its supported features, it provides you with options to change monitor settings directly from within the application.This can be useful if the monitor does not make available certain features that you want to control (while supporting them), if you want to make changes quicker, or if it does not support hardware calibration at all.SoftMCCSSoftMCCS needs to be installed before it can be used. It will run a compliance test on first start that checks the monitor’s functionality. The test is semi-automated which means that you will have to confirm certain findings while other tests run automatically.You can run the compliance test at any time from the tools menu once you have completed or canceled it.The program loads a huge list of information afterwards that reveal everything there is to know about the monitor.It reveals the functions that the monitor supports, information about the monitor itself such as its product code or serial number, and controls that you can make use of to change certain monitor settings directly from within the program.Here is a short list of controls that it provides you with:Turn of reduced power mode.Restore factory defaults (all, or luminance/contrast, geometry, color)Change horizontal or vertical position of the screen.Change contrast, luminance, or clock.Select color preset (native, 4000k, 5000k, 8200k, 9300k).Control red, blue, green video gain.Manage sharpness and clock phase.Change the display application (various presets such as games, sports, productivity or movie)Control manufacturer specific functions.Once you have made a change, usually in form of moving a slider or checking/unchecking boxes, you need to click on activate usually to send the change to the monitor. The change is reflected on the screen immediately which is great as you can modify the functions as you see fit while previewing the results right away on the monitor.The program supports other features besides this. A click on tools reveals several options such as running auto setup , auto-rotation, restoring values or running a new hardware scan.You may also save all information to a log file, and have all commands (even those not supported by the monitor in question), displayed on the screen.Closing WordsSoftMCCS is a handy program for Windows devices. While designed primarily for business use, it provides anyone with options to manage and control connected monitors using the application. This is usually a lot faster than using the monitor’s functionality to modify values or make changes to it considering that you will have to tap on the provided buttons multiple times for desired results while you can simply click once using the program for the same effect.Additionally, it is useful if the monitor does not provide hardware calibration options at all (rare), or if some options are not implemented but supported. Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 6 votes Software Name SoftMCCSOperating System WindowsSoftware Category HardwareLanding Page http://www.entechtaiwan.com/lib/softmccs.shtm Advertisementlast_img read more

A look at Easy Screenshot for Firefox

first_imgA look at Easy Screenshot for Firefox by Martin Brinkmann on May 27, 2018 in Firefox – Last Update: October 04, 2018 – 11 commentsMozilla’s Firefox web browser comes with built-in screenshot capturing functionality; first launched as a Test Pilot experiment to gather data and interest in the feature, screen capturing is now part of Firefox natively.Just click on the three dots in the Firefox address bar and select the “take a screenshot” item from the menu to start the process. You can capture the entire page or part of it, and save the screenshot online or locally.I spotted Easy Screenshot on Mozilla’s Firefox Add-ons website; it has the fourth largest installation base of all Firefox extensions.Easy ScreenshotEasy Screenshot is created by Mozilla Online, a whole subsidiary of Mozilla Corporation that operates in China. The subsidiary distributes custom Firefox browsers in China and releases some of the extensions that it creates on Mozilla AMO.Easy Screenshot is a screen capturing extension for Firefox that users of the web browser may install. It adds screenshot capturing and editing to the browser; one of the core differences to Firefox’s native screenshot implementation is that Easy Screenshot does not support online uploads or sharing of screenshots online as it saves screenshots to the local system only.The extension has not been updated since 2017 and it is likely that it won’t receive any more updates thanks to the native integration of screen capturing in Firefox; still, it does not appear to be based on Firefox Screenshots.Note: Easy Screenshot is not the first extension to add screen capturing functionality to Firefox. We reviewed NativeShot back in 2016 which supported similar functionality. NativeShot is not compatible with Firefox 57 or newer, though.Easy Screenshot is very simple to use: click on the extension icon displayed on Firefox’s main toolbar and select the type of screenshot that you want to capture. The extension supports capturing the entire web page, the visible part of the web page, or a region on the web page.You draw a rectangle on the screen if you select region from the list of options, the other two screen capturing methods work automatically. All three load the built-in image editor after the capturing.The editor supports a couple of basic options: draw shapes such as rectangles or lines on the screen, use freehand drawing, add text,  or blue content. You can copy the screenshot to the clipboard after the editing or click on the save icon to save it to the local system.Firefox’s native screen capturing tool comes with an editor as well but it does not support some of the options right now; it does not support blur or the drawing of shapes on the screen.Closing WordsEasy Screenshot is a super simple yet powerful screen capturing extension for Firefox. It is compatible with Firefox 57 and newer versions of the web browser. The core differentiating factors between Easy Screenshot and Firefox’s native screen capturing functionality are the former’s focus on saving screenshots locally only and better image editing tools.Now You: How do you you capture screenshots in your browser of choice?Related articlesOverview of the Best Screenshot SoftwareWhat’s the fastest way to take a screenshot on Windows 10 natively?Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 5 votes Software Name Easy ScreenshotSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/easyscreenshot/?src=search Advertisementlast_img read more

New Home Sales Approach a 10Year High

first_imgNew Home Sales Approach a 10-Year High December 18, 2017 570 Views Tight inventory continued to boost home prices as housing activity remained upbeat towards the end of 2017, according to the Economic and Housing outlook released by Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research (ESR) Group on Monday. The monthly forecast, which details interest rate movements, the housing market, mortgage market, and the overall economic climate, noted that total housing starts rose in October to the highest level in a year, even as new home sales approached a decade high. ESR said that existing home sales posted the first back-to-back gains this year, and contract signings to close on existing homes increased for the first time in four months, as sales rebounded from hurricane disruptions.“The housing market continues its upward grind, as it struggles to balance strong demand and house price appreciation with inventory shortages and affordability concerns,” Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae, said.As a percent of real estate value, homeowner equity rose to 58.6 percent, only 1.2 percentage points below the most recent peak at the end of 2005, ESR noted, adding that the yield on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages is expected to average 4 percent this year. ESR said that, while they had expected shortages of skilled labor and land as factors restraining building activity in their January 2017 forecast, the problem was more severe than anticipated. Compared with the January forecast, ESR overestimated mortgage rates for 2017 by two-tenths. However, their forecast for total home sales came very close to the January prediction, as year-to-date sales showed a 2 percent gain in 2017 over 2016, compared with a forecasted 2.2 percent increase at the beginning of the year.Considering 2018, ESR expects mortgage rates to rise gradually, averaging 4.2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018 from 3.9 percent in the current quarter. Total housing starts and total home sales should rise about 5 percent and 3 percent, respectively, in 2018.

Weightloss supplement recalled
