Maharashtra’s reply sought on plea against bail to Pragya

first_imgThe Supreme Court on Friday sought a response from the Maharashtra government on a plea challenging the Bombay High Court order granting bail to Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.A Bench led by Justice R.K. Agarwal also listed the bail plea of Thakur’s co-accused Shrikant Purohit for August 14.The petition challenging the bail for Thakur was filed by Nisar Ahmed Haji Sayed Bilal, father of some of the blast victims. It wants a stay of the April 25 High Court order.“The High Court failed to appreciate that Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur is an influential person and is likely to wield her power and influence in an illegal and unlawful manner to tamper with evidence and influence witnesses,” the petition contended.But in an affidavit, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) countered that it had not found “sufficient evidence” to prosecute Thakur. However, on the other hand, the agency contended that there were “several incriminating circumstances” against Purohit to prove “his deep involvement and complicity in the crime.”Thakur was granted bail by the High Court, which, however, had refused a similar relief to Purohit. The NIA contended that there was no question of parity between the two accused and the High Court did not err in granting bail to Thakur.Seven persons were killed in a bomb blast on September 29, 2008, at Malegaon.last_img read more

Football : Liverpool’s Naby Keita believes the Reds can challenge Man City for the…

first_imgAdvertisementNaby Keita was the first of Liverpool’s new arrivals of this summer. Liverpool look at Keita as the heir of the Gerrard’s box to box role having made his name in Leipzig as one of the box to box midfielders of the world. He was signed by Liverpool in August 2017 after triggering his release clause but arrived at joined Liverpool in July 2018. He is one of the first signing of the Klopp’s “project” this summer.Along with Naby Keita, Monaco’s Fabinho came just days later. One would think Liverpool have finished their transfer agenda but Klopp thought otherwise. Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri arrived for a measly 13m and one of the world’s best young goalkeeper Alisson Becker joined for a world record fee of £66.8m weeks later.These four signings have cost a total of more than £150m. Fuelled by the sale of Phllipe Coutinho, Liverpool have splashed the Coutinho transfer money in this transfer window to solve all the positional issues they had. A front three with the likes of Salah, Mane, Firmino who carried Liverpool all the way to the Champions League final followed by a midfield duo of Fabinho and Keita behind them look like the most challenging and impressive team that could lead Liverpool to much waited premier league success. In the back, the presence of breakout stars Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander Arnold in the wings and the centre back duo 2018 world cup team of the tournament defender Dejan Lovren and the world’s most expensive defender Virgil Van Dijk make Liverpool a team that has an attack, midfield and defense of similar prowess bringing in a balance in the team strength.When questioned about the quality of squad to compete with City this season, Keita said: “I know we have enough quality. It’s all about having the mindset and desire to want it and fight for it enough. I think that goes a long way, having that desire and belief. I’m someone who has this real winning mentality, I have a huge desire to win. That’s why I’m aggressive in a positive sense on the field.”When asked about the standard of the Premier League’s physicality, Keita answered: “I don’t think that physical aspect is going to have a negative effect on me at all. I’ve watched a lot of English football and I’m getting used to this kind of physical aspect. Through the process of the pre-season friendlies, hopefully I’ll be up to speed with it. Winning the ball back is something I like.”Read also :Football : Mane gets legendary number 10 Liverpool shirt ahead of teammate Mo SalahFootball: German Wonderkid Max Meyer without a club as Arsenal, Liverpool circle Advertisementlast_img read more

I have to be calm. I’ve spoken to Deschamps and he knows what I think.”Lucas played the full match on Saturday as Atletico were held to a 1-1 draw by promoted Girona at the Wanda Metropolitano, rounding off a disappointing week which also saw them beaten 2-1 at home in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-final by a Sevilla team who had been struggling for form.Up next for Atletico on Tuesday is the return leg at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and Lucas says they go there with “immense desire” to turn things around and secure a semi-final place.”Immense desire we feel for the match,” he said. “We come from a difficult result, but we have hope to progress and everyone must believe in us because we go there for everything.”last_img read more

Bombardier says unrest in Ukraine could delay Russian deal to build Q400s

by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 20, 2014 3:21 pm MDT Bombardier says unrest in Ukraine could delay Russian deal to build Q400s The international crises over events in Crimea could affect Bombardier’s efforts to finalize negotiations for a joint venture to build Q-400 turboprops in Russia, the manufacturer said Thursday.“With the Ukraine and everything that’s happening there, it’s softened up a little bit the discussions but our partner is still very eager to make that happen,” aerospace president Guy Hachey told an investor conference in New York.Hachey didn’t provide any details about the potential impact the crisis might have on what he described as a “big opportunity” for the aircraft.Russia is being targeted by western countries for its annexation of the Crimean peninsula.On Thursday, President Barack Obama expanded U.S. economic sanctions against Moscow, targeting 20 Russian officials as well as a Russian bank that provides them support.Obama also signed an executive order that would allow the U.S. to penalize key sectors of the Russian economy, including its huge energy business, if Russian forces move into other areas of Ukraine.The dispute with Russia is expected to dominate a meeting next week of G7 leaders, which includes the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada.Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) said in January that it was close to finalizing an agreement to establish a joint venture with Rostec, a Russian state corporation, that could lead to some 100 turboprops, valued at US$3.4 billion at list prices, being built for the Russian market.The final assembly line in Russia would complement Bombardier’s Toronto operations, where final assembly of the 70- to 80-seat turboprop currently take place.Hachey told analysts that its efforts to sell the plane in emerging markets is gaining traction in part due to the introduction of an 86-seat version that will make it more financially attractive for customers and challenge main rival ATR.“I’m more bullish on the Q400 than I have been in the last couple of years,” he told analysts.Meanwhile, Hachey said flight testing of its new commercial CSeries aircraft will pick up in the coming months but is already providing proof of the cost savings it has promised customers to attract more than 200 firm orders.“Obviously, we still have a lot more testing to go, we have a lot more hours to fly, but every indication right now is what we have modelled is actually happening in flight testing.”The aircraft’s entry into service has been delayed until the second half of 2015.It is one of several development programs underway. Bombardier is also developing new ultra long-range Global 7000/8000 business jets, coming out with a refreshed Challenger 350 and preparing to introduce an all-composite Learjet 85.Bombardier CEO Pierre Beaudoin said the company has delayed the first flight of its newest Learjet, which was scheduled for Thursday, due to adverse weather.However, the plane will have its first test flight “imminently,” said Beaudoin, who added that is upbeat about the company’s future.“We’ve invested a lot in growth in new products in the last few years and, as the products enter into service, we’re now ready to start seeing the results of all these investments,” he said.The Montreal-based transportation company expects its revenues will grow to more than US$30 billion in five years from US$18.2 billion in 2013 as its pre-tax profit EBIT doubles.For 2016, Beaudoin said revenue should increase to between US$23 billion and US$25 billion.Walter Spracklin of RBC Capital Markets said that’s ahead of his forecast of US$22 billion, while the 2014 EBITDA guidance of US$1.5 billion was US$200 million more than he has predicted.Bombardier expects to generate more free cash this year and will have enough liquidity to fund new aerospace programs while paying $1.8 billion of debt set to mature in 2016.“We believe that the tone and new data points are neutral to a modest positive to our current positive thesis on the Bombardier shares,” he wrote in a report Thursday.New business aircraft are expected to add up to US$3.5 billion in additional revenue, while the CSeries should deliver US$5 billion to US$8 billion in revenue depending on if it produces 120 or 150 aircraft per year.Beaudoin said he also anticipates the railway division revenues to grow from increased orders in high-margin rolling stock and system/signalling contracts, which together account for 39 per cent of Bombardier’s revenues.The company also expects services work will contribute one quarter of Bombardier’s revenues in five years, up from 19 per cent last year.Beaudoin said that’s “a big challenge” given the anticipated growth in overall revenues but can be achieved by acquiring a services business.Lutz Bertling, the new head of the railway division, said the company is addressing past problems while cutting costs to fund research and development.He said that will give it a two-year innovation advantage as its two primary rivals — Alstom and Siemens — are diverted by internal problems.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Bombardier’s shares closed at C$4.15, up six cents in Thursday trading.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

As parties meet in Uganda UN official urges consensual solution to Burundian

“Burundi has gone through difficult times before and has a long history of dialogues. There are lessons to be learned from these past experiences,” Jamal Benomar, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser, said at talks convened in Uganda by President Yoweri Museveni, who is also mediator of the East African Community. “Burundians are the ones who will live with the consequences of the decisions they make. They have the prime responsibility for finding a way forward for the future of their country,” Mr. Benomar added. “This must be a nationally-led and owned effort which we as the international community stand ready to support.” Burundi has been in the midst of a political crisis since President Pierre Nkurunziza decided to run for a controversial third term earlier this year, since when at least 400 people have been killed, with the toll possibly considerably higher, and 220,000 have fled to neighbouring States with many others internally displaced. Just over a week ago, the UN Security Council, voicing deep concern at the escalation of violence in Burundi, called for urgent acceleration of mediation efforts by East African States and urged all Burundian stakeholders to fully cooperate with a proposed African Union peacekeeping mission.The Council stated that only a “genuine and inclusive” dialogue would best enable the Burundian stakeholders to find a consensual solution to the crisis, a point that Mr. Benomar reiterated today. He added that the UN has a wealth of experience in supporting national dialogue processes and is ready “to support you in any possible way,” working in partnership with colleagues in the East African Community and the AU. “I sincerely hope today’s event will mark the beginning of the path towards a peaceful, stable and prosperous Burundi.” read more

President rejects second list of nominees for GECOM Chairmanship

-Opposition Leader says litigation forthcoming if President unilaterally appoints someone  President David GrangerPresident David Granger, has once again, rejected the list of persons submitted by the Opposition Leader Dr Bharat Jagdeo for the  appointment of Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM).Today, the second day of June 2017, Jagdeo received a letter from President Granger informing him that the list of six persons, which he submitted on the second day of May 2017, in accordance with Article 161 (2) of the Constitution, is “unacceptable”.The six nominees for the second list included; retired Justice of Appeal BS Roy, retired Justice William Ramlall, Attorney and former Magistrate Oneidge Walrond Allicock, Attorney Kashir Khan, Attorney Nadia Sagar and Captain Gerald Gouveia.Jagdeo had posited with respect to the now rejected list of nominees that “one(1) is a former Judge of the Court of Appeal of Guyana; one(1) is a former Judge of the High Court of Guyana; three(3) are Attorneys-at-law with over ten(10) years of good standing at the Guyana Bar and one(1) is a former Magistrate and therefore, qualify to be Judges of a Court having unlimited jurisdiction in civil and criminal matters in Guyana, in accordance with the Constitution of Guyana; and one(1) is a former Captain of the Guyana Defence Force, a Pilot, and a Businessman and Entrepreneur.”The President’s letter to the Opposition Leader cites Article 161(2) of the Constitution, more specifically, that the Chairman should be appointed ‘from the list of six persons, not unacceptable to the President.’The President then goes on to say that “I have examined the Curricula Vitae of the six persons in light of the criteria defined in my letter to you dated 2017.03.14…I have found the list to be ‘unacceptable’ within the meaning of the Constitution and of those criteria.”This letter was received a few hours after the Leader of the Opposition concluded a press conference, at which he was critical of the President’s overall approach to this issue, which he considers to be of fundamental national importance.Leader of the Opposition Dr Bharat JagdeoJagdeo, in a subsequent release, said that the letter does not indicate what next steps, if any, the President requires to be taken.The Opposition Leader said he notes “with deep concern the cavalier and callous manner in which the President continues to express no confidence in and denigrates the professional reputation, integrity and competence of Guyanese of high calibre who have rendered sterling contributions to the development of our country and in service to our people and who have distinguished themselves in their individual endeavours and pursuits.”Jagdeo reiterated his party’s apprehension that the “President is bent on unilaterally selecting a person of his choice in violation of the letter and spirit of Article 161 (2) of the Constitution and indeed, the Carter Formula.”Moreover, the Opposition Leader warned that “should the President proceed along this unconstitutional, undemocratic and diabolical path there will be litigation and other consequences for which the President will be responsible.”President Granger had dubbed Jagdeo’s first list of nominees as ‘unacceptable’ while  indicating that they did not meet the requirements of Article 161 (2) of the Constitution.These names included Governance and Conflict Resolution Specialist, Lawrence Lachmansingh; Attorney-at-Law and Chartered Accountant, Christopher Ram; businesswoman and former broadcast executive, Rhyaan Shah; Retired Major General, Norman Mc Lean; Business Executive, Ramesh Dookhoo and History Professor, James Rose.The President’s interpretation adumbrated that a current or sitting judge or someone eligible to be a judge in Guyana or the Commonwealth Caribbean is preferred to be appointed as Chairman of the electoral body.The Opposition’s contention however, is that the Constitution clearly contemplates two categories of persons for the post: “Firstly, a High Court judge or an Appellate Court judge, a former High Court or an Appellate Court judge or a person qualified to be a High Court or an Appellate Court judge. Secondly, or (disjunctive), any “fit and proper” person.The President subsequently amended his position to include his ‘criteria’ that the GECOM Chairman must not only be a Judge, but must not be an activist or member of any political party, among many other provisions.GECOM has been without a Chairman since February 28, 2017 when Dr Steve Surujbally stepped down after 15 years at the helm.

CTran says changes positive more work to do

first_imgChris Forhan uses C-Tran nearly every day and has been a constant rider for a little more than 10 years, so he had a keen interest when the agency made a substantial service change last year and added The Vine in January.C-Tran altered 375 bus stops, changed 11 routes, added three more and dropped two others in September in an effort to improve overall functionality of its system. The changes helped lay the foundation for The Vine, the region’s first bus rapid transit system, which went live a few months later.So, how’d the agency do?By Forhan’s measure and those of a handful of other riders, pretty well.“I think C-Tran’s made a lot of really good improvements over the last year,” Forhan said. “We’re reaching a level with public transit that’s comparable with other cities.”By its own standards, C-Tran saw some positive results, but there’s still work to be done — especially on its commuter routes — according to a report provided to the agency’s board of directors on June 13.In October and November 2015, the 11 routes C-Tran selected ran on schedule about 67 percent of the time. A year later, after they had changed, their performance jumped up to 76 percent.last_img read more

Fixed Samsung Galaxy Fold Launches For Real This September

first_imgStay on target Samsung’s 108MP Camera Sensor Is Coming to a Smartphone Near YouHuge Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Doesn’t Have Room For Headphone Jack One of this year’s most entertaining tech debacles has been the sad saga of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The Android phone, with its ability to unfold from a single screen to an expansive dual screen setup, is certainly ambitious. And we could’ve forgiven some launch issues considering the innovation of the design.But the Samsung Galaxy Fold fell on its face before even leaving the starting block. Tech reviewers experienced massive problems with their pre-release units. All it took was some light use of the hinge, an accidental cover peel, and a trapped speck of dirt to completely wreck the screen and ruin the device. If the phone couldn’t stand up to professionals, it didn’t have a chance with regular consumers.Fortunately, Samsung realized that if they’re going to charge $2,000 for a phone then it better work. The Galaxy Fold was quickly delayed from its original April release date so fixes could be made. And now we know what those fixes are as well as when can expect the phone.AdChoices广告One of the most baffling design choices of the original Galaxy Fold was making its top layer so easy to remove despite being essential to the device. It looked like a piece of film you would rip off any other screen. But if you did that with this phone you’d break the display. Now Samsung has extended the Infinity Flex Display beyond the bezel to hammer home that you shouldn’t remove it.The phone is also more reinforced to ward off harmful external particles and support the hinge you’ll be using a lot. There are new protection caps on the top and bottom, new metal layers beneath the screen, and reduced space between the hinge and body.We’ll see for ourselves how effective these fixes are if and when the Samsung Galaxy Fold manages to meet its new release window this September. In the meantime, here are some other cool Android phones to look forward to.last_img read more
