A series of reactions have started pouring in following the 2015-16 Union Budget. Earlier presenting the national budget for the next fiscal, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday said the state of the country’s economy was better placed today with its credibility re-established by a series of measures taken by his government.”I am presenting the union budget in an economic environment which is far more positive than in the recent past. While major economies of the world face difficulties, India is poised for higher growth trajectory,” Jaitley said as he started his budget speech in the Lok Sabha, reports IANS.Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted that the Budget was progressive, pragmatic and practical.Here are some of the comments by other BJP leaders:Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said the union budget has given the “highest priority” to infrastructure that will boost employment in the country.”This is the first time in the Indian history the FM (finance minister) has given highest priority to the infrastructure,” Gadkari told reporters outside Parliament House.”Investment in infrastructure will boost employment opportunities, give priority to rural development and agriculture,” he added.Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar termed the budget as a historical one, saying: “It has given social security to all. It’s of the poor, for the poor.”Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani praised Jaitley for giving importance to girls’ education. She said it is “a pragmatic budget that gives lot of thrust on infrastructure, skill, innovation, girls’ education.”According to Rail Minister Suresh Prabhu, the budget is in the interest of the people of the country. “Steps have been taken to control inflation and increase investment.”Budget pragmatic, will re-ignite growth, says Modi Budget pragmatic, will re-ignite growth, says Modi Prime Minist… http://t.co/1MaFhWhNGO— 9ijaNews (@9ijaNews) February 28, 2015

Handout picture released by the Archeological Zone of Caral on 16 August 2018 showing high relief decorations on a recently unearthed wall at the archaeological site of Vichama, on the Huaura Valley, on the coast of the Peru, 140 km north of Lima. Photo: AFPA set of Roman-era tombs dating back some 2,000 years have been discovered near the Palestinian city of Hebron in the occupied West Bank during road works, an official said Thursday.The cemetery dating to the first century AD, when the region was under Roman rule, was found in the village of Idna in the southern West Bank around two weeks ago.It was discovered during road work in mountainous terrain in the area, said Taleb Jubran, director of the department of tourism and antiquities in Hebron.Bones, pottery and some 32 tombs set into stone were found. It was clear to archaeologists that artifacts had been stolen from the site before it was officially discovered, said Jubran.”This discovery is very important for us to study it and to preserve it,” Jubran said.The tombs were set out over a space of some 50 metres.Officials also hoped to turn the site into a tourist attraction, while further study of it would continue to turn up details of what was found and its importance, he said.A large number of remains from the Roman era can be found and visited in Israel and the Palestinian territories as well as the region as a whole.
Prime minister Sheikh Hasina gives an interview to BBC Bangla in London on 6 August. Photo: BBC BanglaPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday shrugged off the allegations of torture in custody by Bangladeshi law enforcement agencies, reports news agency UNB.“Information is gathered from criminals using the methods the other countries apply and nothing is done beyond it,” she said in an interview with the BBC.Noting that there are international rules to interrogate suspected criminals, Hasina said her government trained members of law enforcement agencies by sending them to countries like the USA and the UK.But some stray incidents may occur, she said adding that custodial deaths are currently very rare in Bangladesh.The prime minister said a “culture of impunity” had developed under the previous governments and she herself was a victim of that situation.She further said this culture of impunity continued for many years when military dictators ruled the country directly, and often in the guise of politicians, after the assassination of father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.Asked about initiatives taken by her government to stop such culture, Sheikh Hasina replied: “All appropriate measures in this regard.”“It was a difficult task to bring the country back to a healthy trend and we’ve performed that difficult task,” she said.She also criticised a section of people spearheading propaganda on the rights situation.“This section is always desperate to find our faults, their status become elevated when an unconstitutional or abnormal government or martial law rules the country,” the prime minister said, UNB reports.Asked whether the people are getting the benefits of economic growth, Hasina said they certainly are. She noted that the country’s poverty rate had been brought down to 21.04 per cent from over 41 per cent in 2005-2006.The prime minister also said per capita income increased to about $2,000 from $400-500 and the country achieved 8.1 per cent growth in the last fiscal year.“When higher growth is achieved, the inflation increases naturally. But we didn’t allow raising inflation and we maintained it at 5.5 or 6 per cent,” she said.Hasina also said the fruits of economic uplift are reaching the common people very naturally.When asked about the “vulnerable situation” in banking sector and loan default culture, she said the matter is not at that extent as much as it publicised.“It was started while the military dictators were in power. When we came to power, we tried to realise the loans,” she said.About freedom of media, Hasina said the mass media is enjoying full freedom. “If it doesn’t exist, [then] how a propaganda mixing with truth and falsehood is being carried out against me and my government?” she asked.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina gives an interview to BBC Bangla in London on 6 August. Photo: BBC BanglaThe prime minister said many people are saying that there is no freedom of mass media. “But how [can] they speak so much if freedom of speech doesn’t exist,” she asked.She said her government is trying hard to maintain a peaceful atmosphere in the country.“If anybody delivers provocative speech, will then anybody and the country remain idle? … no, they cannot, security will have to be given to people first and we’ll have to do whatever necessary for their security,” she added.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina also was critical of reports on the patients suffering from dengue fever.She said too many reports on dengue are being published and this is creating panic.“Many reports about dengue are being published. This is making people panicked and creating problems. It (dengue) has mainly spread in the upscale areas. We always focus on the slum areas and drains (for spraying insecticides). Mosquito killing is a regular act,” she said.Hasina also shrugged off the allegation of corruption in buying mosquito killing insecticides.She did not find any substance in the allegation that two city corporations — Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) and Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) — did not take any steps to control the spread of aedes mosquito or failed to take timely step considering the matter as an important one.The prime minister also called on people to be more cautious instead of blaming the city corporations only.Hasina further said the Awami League leaders and activists have been asked alongside the government bodies to conduct cleaning programmes in their areas to curb the spread of aedes mosquito.She said cleaning campaign is necessary not only in Dhaka, but also across the whole country.The prime minister also warned people of facing fine if mosquito larvae are found inside their home or in the nearby areas.Sheikh Hasina said if people remain prepared for the future such a situation won’t be repeated.
White Oak Music HallWhite Oak Music Hall To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:14 Harris County District Judge Kristen Hawkins recently granted a temporary injunction prohibiting two planned outdoor concerts at the North Main music venue. A lawsuit that was filed by nearby residents is set for May 15th, but attorney Cris Feldman says they’re now asking for a hearing in a separate action. Listen X “Residents are asking that Section 30-11 of the Municipal Code be invoked. That provision allows for a hearing on the sound permit. In papers publicly filed by White Oak Music Hall, they state it would be impossible — and they actually italicize the term ‘impossible’ — to keep their music to 75 decibels at the perimeter of their property.” But Diana Pfeifer of the Lindale Park area says the music hall has been forthcoming about its plans when it first presented its Memorandum of Understanding, or MOU. “White Oak Music Hall never hid the fact that they wanted to have an outdoor venue, and that’s why components like sound and parking and traffic were included in the MOU.” Attorney Feldman says the citizens he represents are not asking that the indoor stages be shut down — only that the hearing be held on the sound permit allowing outdoor amplified music.

Share The Senate Judiciary Committee holds the second day of hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.On Wednesday, Kavanaugh can expect to spend most of the day in the hot seat, sparring with Democratic senators over abortion, guns, executive power and other high-profile issues.A long day of questioning awaits the 53-year-old appellate judge, whom Trump nominated in July to fill the seat of retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. The change could make the court more conservative on a range of issues.Barring a surprise, Republicans appear on track to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, perhaps in time for the first day of the new term, Oct. 1, little more than a month before congressional elections.However, the first of at least four days of hearings by the Senate Judiciary Committee began with partisan quarreling over the nomination and persistent protests from members of the audience, followed by their arrests.Strong Democratic opposition to Trump’s nominee reflects the political stakes for both parties in advance of the November elections, Robert Mueller’s investigation of Trump’s 2016 campaign and the potentially pivotal role Kavanaugh could play in moving the court to the right.Democrats, including several senators poised for 2020 presidential bids, tried to block the proceedings in a dispute over Kavanaugh records withheld by the White House. Republicans in turn accused the Democrats of turning the hearing into a circus.Trump jumped into the fray late in the day, saying on Twitter that Democrats were “looking to inflict pain and embarrassment” on Kavanaugh.The president’s comment followed the statements of Democratic senators who warned that Trump was, in the words of Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, “selecting a justice on the Supreme Court who potentially will cast a decisive vote in his own case.”On Tuesday, during Kavanaugh’s own statement at the end of more than seven hours of arguing, the federal appeals judge spoke repeatedly about the importance of an independent judiciary and the need to keep the court above partisan politics, common refrains among Supreme Court nominees that had added salience in the fraught political atmosphere of the moment.With his wife, two children and parents sitting behind him, Kavanaugh called himself a judge with a straightforward judicial philosophy.“A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written. A judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent,” he said.The most likely outcome of this week’s hearings is a vote along party lines to send Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate.Majority Republicans can confirm Kavanaugh without any Democratic votes, though they’ll have little margin for error.“There are battles worth fighting, regardless of the outcome,” Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said in an unsparing opening statement that criticized Kavanaugh’s judicial opinions and the Senate process that Democrats said had deprived them of access to records of important chunks of Kavanaugh’s time as an aide to President George W. Bush.Democrats raised objections from the moment Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, gaveled the committee to order. One by one, Democrats, including Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, all potential presidential contenders, demanded that Republicans delay the hearing. They railed against the unusual vetting process by Republicans that failed to include documents from three years Kavanaugh worked in the Bush administration, and 100,000 more pages withheld by the Trump White House. Some 42,000 pages were released to senators only, not the public, on the evening before the hearing.As protesters repeatedly interrupted the session, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who is fighting for his own re-election in Texas, apologized to Kavanaugh for the spectacle he said had less to do about the judge’s legal record than Trump in the White House.“It is about politics,” said Cruz. “It is about Democratic senators re-litigating the 2016 election.”Republicans will hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate once Jon Kyl, the former Arizona senator, is sworn in to fill the seat held by the late Sen. John McCain.Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are the only two Republicans even remotely open to voting against Kavanaugh, though neither has said she would do so. Abortion rights supporters are trying to appeal to those senators, who both favor abortion access.
A damning report has found that a third of the District’s public high school graduates last year missed too many classes or did not properly make up their classes, findings officials fear could cheapen the value of public high school diplomas from D.C.“We very much are committed to putting out the news, the good the bad, or the ugly,” Mayor Muriel Bowser said during her Jan. 30 Mayor’s Breakfast. “None of us around this table who have been very committed to the transformation of our schools wins with fake numbers. And certainly, our children don’t win with fake numbers.”Dunbar High School had one of the highest rates of graduating students who did not meet attendance requirements. The others are Anacostia High School, Ballou High School, Eastern High School, Roosevelt High School and H.D. Woodson High School. (Courtesy photo)The D.C. City Council has scheduled a hearing for Feb. 8 with government witnesses to discuss next steps. Meanwhile, Chancellor Antwan Wilson has rolled out reforms that include transcript reviews to ensure the class of 2018 has earned the grades required to graduate.DCPS will work to improve grading and credit recovery policies by next school year while showing the importance of attendance. By May, DCPS will have a plan to regularly audit grading practices in the high schools, implement a new student information system allowing school leaders, teachers and families to monitor student grades, attendance, and information, and have a process in place to regularly train new staff on policies.Plans are also in place for resource fairs focused on students and families to receive support for school success and attendance. Looking ahead to 2022, DCPS will offer stronger final exams for core courses while offering support for students who fail.“I’m committed to ensuring that our students here in D.C. get what they deserve and that is the opportunity to know that they are privileged for growing up in D.C. and having attended our schools,” said Wilson, chancellor for 11 months.The audit, conducted by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education and released Jan. 29, discovered policy violations in 937 out of 2,758 graduating students’ records at nearly all schools. In Dunbar High School’s case, more than 4,000 changes were made to attendance records for 118 graduates, the report said. The Washington Post reported that the Dunbar principal has been removed from the school.Most high schools operated under a mindset of passing and graduating students, according to a DCPS concurrent review of attendance and grading policies. At Ballou High School, DCPS uncovered a culture of doing “whatever it takes” to pass students so they could receive diplomas.The DCPS review found that six high schools were the worst offenders at graduating students who exceeded the number of absences allowed, and failed to follow DCPS grading and credit recovery policies. Those schools were Anacostia High School, Ballou High School, Dunbar High School, Eastern High School, Roosevelt High School and H.D. Woodson High School.Ballou Principal Yetunde Reeves was removed from her position and Dunbar Principal Abdullah Zaki was placed on leave in the wake of the allegations.DCPS Central Office failed to offer sufficient training and support or adequate oversight in grading and credit recovery policies, the DCPS review said.Despite the sobering news, Bowser remains confident that the district has improved dramatically in the 10 years since the mayor took over the schools. She dodged a question on whether investigators interviewed former chancellor Kaya Henderson and then-interim chancellor John Davis.Bowser ordered the audit and an internal review of DCPS policies and procedures in December following a November report from NPR and WAMU that unearthed a graduation scandal at Ballou. The joint investigation found that the high school was graduating students with repeated absences and others who couldn’t read and write. DCPS has since removed Principal Yetunde Reeves from the school.Councilwoman Mary Cheh took DCPS to task over a school culture she said discourages teachers and principals from coming forward to report malfeasance.“They don’t want to rock the boat because the culture, it’s almost totalitarian from the central office, they don’t want to stick their neck out,” Cheh said. “They feel, maybe they’re not correct, but they certainly feel that there will be reprisals and that they just have to be quiet.”Wilson is putting a system in place that allows school staff to lodge complaints directly to him and intimidation from school leaders is not acceptable, he said.At the upcoming hearing on Feb. 8, David Grosso chairman of the committee on education, wants to understand why some students have attendance issues, an answer that’s eluded officials for years, he said.“I look forward to the opportunity for us to work together to get to the solutions that we need to get to so that students feel like school is the best option in the morning when they get up,” Grosso said. “And that’s the challenge that we have before us.”
(Phys.org)—When an earthquake strikes, damage to buildings such as nuclear power stations can worsen the catastrophe. Researchers from France’s Institut Fresnel and the French division of Menard, a ground-improvement specialist company, have developed an invisibility cloak that could protect buildings during an earthquake by redirecting seismic waves around them. The researchers studied invisibility cloaks that make objects invisible to light waves. These cloaks are made of metamaterials smaller than the wavelength of light. They divert light waves around themselves, so light cannot reach anything hidden inside.While invisibility cloaks are standard fare in science fiction and fantasy, in reality, it is very difficult to create a metamaterial capable of manipulating light waves, which are extremely short and travel very long distances. Seismic waves, however, are longer than light waves and do not travel as far, so developing a seismic metamaterial could be easier.Last year, physicists at Mokpo National Maritime University in South Korea and the Australian National University in Canberra developed a model for a seismic invisibility cloak. The French team, however, was the first to build and test one. The team simulated an earthquake by using a vibraphone to create 50-hertz acoustic waves across a silty clay alluvial basin, up to 200 meters deep, near Grenoble, France. Acoustic sensors measured the waves’ movement.They then created a metamaterial by drilling three rows of holes into the basin. There were 10 holes in each row, spaced 1.73 meters apart. Each hole was about five meters deep and had an average diameter of 320 millimeters. When the French team re-transmitted the 50-hertz waves, energy levels near the source of the waves almost doubled, indicating that the metamaterial was reflecting the waves, which barely made it past the second row of holes. While a seismic metamaterial like this might eventually save lives during an earthquake, engineers and physicists still need to address some important issues. For example, it is impossible to predict the length of an earthquake’s seismic waves. This makes it difficult to determine how far to space the holes in the array. A way to get around this might be to arrange the holes to match the resonance of the building needing protection.There is also a danger that seismic waves reflected off a building could damage nearby buildings. A metamaterial that absorbs, rather than reflects, seismic waves might be a better choice. Copyright 2013 Phys.org All rights reserved.

Kolkata: A person has reportedly drowned while bathing in the sea at Digha on Friday afternoon. He was rescued by the ‘nuliahs’ and rushed to Digha State General Hospital (DSGH) where the attending doctor declared him brought dead.According to sources, one Shankar Deb, aged around 44 years, had gone to Digha with his family on Thursday. He had rented a room at a hotel located in New Digha. On Friday afternoon, he went to Old Digha along with his wife and five-year-old daughter Atrika. There, he consumed alcohol and went to Ghat number 1 to bathe in the sea.

But Shankar did not bother to listen. When he reached near the water, some ‘nuliahs’ and civic volunteers saw him and asked him not to venture into the sea. They tried to reach Shankar but before they could get to him, he reportedly went into the water with Atrika. Just after that, a huge wave came and landed on both. As the force of the wave was very strong, both Shankar and Atrika were beginning to get washed away.

Just after saving his daughter, the ‘nuliahs’ went in the water with safety measures to save Shankar. After a few minutes, Shankar was rescued and taken to the DSGH where he was declared brought dead by the doctor. An Unnatural Death (UD) case has been lodged. It is not clear whether Shankar had died due to excessive consumption of alcohol or by drowning. To identify the cause, sleuths are waiting for the autopsy report. According to police sources, despite repeated requests and warnings, Shankar did not bother to listen to either his wife or the security persons and ventured into the sea in an inebriated state that proved very risky and he ended up paying with his life.
Categories: LaSata News 30Mar Budget increases funds for state universities, holds tuition costs down The House Higher Education Subcommittee on Appropriations today approved a budget that increases funding for the state’s 15 public universities while also tightening tuition restraint language to keep the cost to families down, state Rep. Kim LaSata announced.“I firmly believe in the importance of education and I am proud of the increased investment we were able to propose,” said LaSata of Bainbridge Township, subcommittee chair. “By keeping costs low and increasing access to education, we can better train the workforce of the future.”Overall, the budget increases funding for higher education by 2.3 percent, including a 1.9 percent increase to University Operations Grants. The Tuition Incentive Program, Michigan Competitive Scholarship and the Tuition Grant Program also received increases. In addition, the budget protects Michigan families by lowering the percentage that state universities can increase tuition for Michigan students, and adds new reporting requirements for sexual assault incidents that occur on campus.“The increases we made are an investment in Michigan’s students and lead our state down a path towards more jobs, higher personal incomes, and a healthier economy,” LaSata said, “I look forward to advocating for our budget in the coming weeks and demonstrating how responsible increases to higher education can eventually make Michigan a top ten state.”The higher education budget bill now advances to the House Appropriations Committee.###
