Polls How BJP gained dominance in Gurugram

first_imgGurugram: Among various highlights of BJP’s massive victory in 2019 general elections, there was also a point that how the party has gained such a stronghold in Haryana­—a state where the party did not even exist in 2009.Gurugram can best be described as the seat where the saffron party always bet on and ultimately it was this seat which ultimately led to BJP, gaining a stronghold in the rest of the state. It was in 1996 when the BJP for the first time won from the Gururgam seat. BJP then had fielded Colonel Ram Singh against Rao Birender Singh who is coincidentally the father of the winning candidate Rao Inderjit Singh who on Thursday had a victory margin over 3.5 lakh votes.

This is for the last time Rao Birender Singh contested in the General elections. In1998, his son Rao Inderjit Singh contested from Congress and won. His victory was shortlived as in 1999 he was defeated by Sudha Yadav from BJP who besides being a tall leader of the saffron party is also the widow of Sukhbir Singh Yadav, a martyr in Kargil war.

Besides Rao Inderjit Singh there was also Rao Narbir Singh who is presently the Badshahpur MLA. Interestingly Prime Minister Narendra Modi started in 2014 Lok Sabha campaign from Rewari whwere large number of ex-Army men reside. It is here he made the promise that if elected he will implement the one rank one pension scheme. Modi factor and the presenc of Rao Inderjit resulted in the victory for BJP. This was again extended in the vidhan sabha elections where Umesh Aggarwal won to set the record by winning over the largest margin. “Even though local issues matter, the electorate of Gurgram realise that it is the national issue for which we vote for and that is whyBJP has alway been a strong force in Gururgam,” said Jatin Yadav the city electorate.last_img read more

Just started asking for equal pay

first_imgLondon: ‘Bodyguard’ star Keeley Hawes has said that she has “only just” started asking to be paid on par with her male counterparts. The actor, who features as the female lead Home Secretary Julia Montague in the BBC thriller, said it is after the success of the show that she has raised her voice demanding equal pay. “I’ve only just asked to be paid the same to do exactly the same work as someone else. In the past, it was always a case of take it, no questions asked, because if you don’t someone else will take it,” Hawes told The Times. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: PriyankaThe 43-year-old actor, who has worked in shows like ‘Line of Duty’ and ‘The Casual Vacancy’, credited fellow artiste Jennifer Lawrence for sparking the conversation regarding equal pay. “You need a big profile to be able to stand up for yourself. It took people like Jennifer Lawrence saying it to move things forward. It made her unpopular at the time but it’s started a hugely powerful movement. Generally, the statistics for women’s pay are still horrific compared with men’s, but it’s all moving in the right direction,” she said. Hawes features in Bodyguard opposite ‘Game of Thrones’ star Richard Madden. Recently, Bodyguard creator Jed Mercurio said he is “optimistic” that there will be a second season of the show.last_img read more

Spanish Policeman Killed in Bust against 2 FrenchMoroccan Drug Trafficking Suspects

Rabat – A Spanish policeman was killed during a bust operation against two Moroccan-French nationals suspected of drug trafficking in Los Barrios, Cadiz in southern Spain.The policeman was killed on Thursday as he was chasing   the car of the suspects, who were carrying cannabis.A spokesperson of the Spanish Civil Guard told AF that the suspects were arrested as part of “an operation against drug trafficking.” But the spokesperson did not give details about the circumstances in which the policeman was killed.Spanish media reported that  was on a motorcycle to chase the drug traffickers car when he was hit with a truck.The spokesperson said, however, that the vehicle of the suspects carried hashish. He did not specify the amount of the illegal substance the suspects were carrying.Cadiz is the entry point for 40 percent of all drugs smuggled into Spain, according to AFP.  In 2017, half of the amount of cannabis seized in Spain were seized in the region (182 tons out of 335).The region is also known for its high unemployment rate. read more

Child removed then returned to Roma family in Athlone

first_imgUpdated 22:54A CHILD HAS been removed, and since returned, to a Roma family in the Athlone.Gardaí have confirmed that a two-year-old boy was taken from his parents under childcare legislation last night and placed in HSE care.Enquiries were carried out regarding the toddler’s identity, and he was returned to his family’s care this morning.A garda spokesperson said that officers were satisfied that the child was back with his real family, and confirmed that no further enquiries were taking place in relation to the case.Speaking on RTÉ’s News at One, the father of the child in question said that gardaí had called to the family home early yesterday evening.The father said he was asked questions about the child’s appearance. Concerns had been raised over the toddler’s identity, as he has fair hair and features, in contrast with the rest of the family.The father said that he had a grandparent who also had fair hair.The family co-operated fully with gardaí when told the child would be taken into care for the night while his identity was confirmed, and the father was informed this morning he could pick his son up from a local centre.Tallaght caseThe news comes just 48 hours after a seven-year-old girl was taken from a Roma family in Tallaght. DNA tests are currently being carried out to determine the identity of the girl in the Dublin case.Described as a seven-year-old with blonde hair and blue eyes, the girl was removed from the address by gardaí using the powers granted under the Child Care Act.Last week, a young girl, named Maria, was discovered in a Roma camp in the central town of Farsala, Greece.That case has prompted a global reaction with thousands of calls being made to a Greek charity about Maria’s possible origins.Pavee Point, which represents the Traveller and Roma communities in Ireland, has said that whatever the explanation for the Irish children being taken into care “this reaction needs examining”.The group says it’s “very hard to know what’s going on in this hysteria”.This article was originally posted at 11.59am.Related: DNA tests being carried out on girl found living with Roma familylast_img read more

PM faces crucial dual test

first_imgAs government officials attempt to finalize an elusive package of 11.5 billion euros in budget cuts for 2013 and 2014 ahead of a brief summer break, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is bracing for what promises to be the toughest stint in his premiership later this month.Government sources told Kathimerini that Samaras faces the tough task of overcoming disagreements within his shaky coalition government regarding the content of the package of measures and convincing European Union leaders that Greece will meet its commitments to international creditors while keeping alive the possibility of a future renegotiation of the more onerous terms of the country’s loan agreement.Samaras is said to be taking a few days off ahead of planned meetings later this month with Eurogroup Chairman Jean-Claude Juncker, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande.But getting the Europeans on his side is not Samaras’s only challenge. He must also overcome the objections of his coalition partners — socialist PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos and Fotis Kouvelis of Democratic Left — to the planned resurrection of a controversial labor reserve scheme, aimed at cutting state spending by reducing civil servant numbers. Kouvelis has dismissed the scheme out of hand as “a fiasco” following several failed efforts by authorities to implement it. Venizelos is less categorically opposed to the plan but is keen to avoid setting a precedent for layoffs in the civil service which he has pledged to avoid at all costs.Both leaders are expected to receive a finalized blueprint for the 11.5 billion euros in cuts — still being worked over by Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras and Labor Minister Yiannis Vroutsis — by around August 20.Assuming that the coalition leaders set aside their objections in the broader interests of the coalition and support the blueprint, the government still faces the challenge of voting the unpopular package of measures — which is certain to include fresh cuts to pensions and social benefits — through Parliament in September.The tripartite coalition has a 178-seat majority in the 300-member House so logically the vote should pass but the severity of the measures might put the convictions of some leftist lawmakers to the test.

Porn star sues Trump over hush deal

first_imgDonald TrumpA porn star sued President Donald Trump on Tuesday to declare a “hush agreement” over their alleged affair invalid because he never signed it, documents say.Los Angeles lawyer Michael Avenatti posted on his Twitter account a copy of what appears to be the suit filed on behalf of the porn star who goes by the name Stormy Daniels. Her real name is Stephanie Clifford.The hush agreement does “not exist, because, among other things, Mr Trump never signed” the document with a Superior Court of California stamp, the suit says.It alleges she had an intimate relationship with Trump from 2006 to 2007, which she sought to reveal after Trump won the Republican Party nomination for president and other women claimed to have had sexual encounters with him.With help from his lawyer Michael Cohen, Trump then sought to “aggressively… silence Ms Clifford as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth, thus helping to ensure he won the presidential election,” the document says.Cohen prepared a non-disclosure agreement, a copy of which is attached to the lawsuit and which required a $130,000 payment to be wired from a company known as Essential Consultants LLC to Clifford in return for her silence, according to the documents.Using the pseudonyms Peggy Peterson and David Dennison, Clifford and Trump were to sign the agreement, along with Essential Consultants.Days before the November 2016 presidential election which Trump won, Clifford put her name to the document, as did Cohen for Essential Consultants, it says.“Mr. Trump, however, did not sign the agreement, thus rendering it legally null and void and of no consequence,” the document adds.Cohen told US media last month that he paid Clifford $130,000, prompting her manager to suggest a non-disclosure agreement had been broken.Cohen declined to give details such as why he made the payment, or if Trump was aware of it at the time.“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen said, according to the New York Times.Trump declined to comment on the issue. The White House has dodged questions about whether allegations of an affair are true, claiming the matter was dealt with during the campaign.Cohen’s comments came after the watchdog group Common Cause filed a federal complaint in January arguing that the payout may have violated campaign finance rules.last_img read more

Trump terms journalist enemy of the people

first_imgA White House staff member reaches for the microphone held by CNN`s Jim Acosta as he questions US president Donald Trump during a news conference in Washington. Photo: ReutersThe White House on Wednesday suspended the press pass of a CNN reporter who earlier sparred with Donald Trump at a news conference, in which the US president branded the journalist an “enemy of the people.”A visibly angry Trump had called reporter Jim Acosta a “rude, terrible person,” after the CNN White House correspondent refused the president’s orders to sit down and give up the microphone during the conference one day after the US midterm vote.”The White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice,” said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders hours later, referring to Acosta, who then tweeted that he had been denied White House entry.The heated exchange began after the prominent journalist clung to the microphone and persisted with questions about the president’s views on a caravan of Central American migrants making its way to the US border.Trump said “that’s enough!” and a White House intern unsuccessfully tried to take the microphone from the CNN journalist.”President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration,” Sanders said in her statement.”We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable,” she said.Acosta shot back at the accusation of misconduct, tweeting “this is a lie” — as his network and a number of Washington journalists who had been at the press conference voiced support for him.”Secretary Sanders lied,” CNN said in a statement, saying the press pass suspension was “done in retaliation for challenging questions.”Sanders “provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened,” the US cable network said.”This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support.”‘ONGOING ATTACKS’An association representing the Washington press corps urged the White House to “immediately reverse this weak and misguided action.””The White House Correspondents’ Association strongly objects to the Trump Administration’s decision to use US Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a difficult relationship,” the group said. “Revoking access to the White House complex is a reaction out of line to the purported offense and is unacceptable.”It was the latest in a long history of fiery run-ins between the mercurial Republican leader and Acosta.At the conference Trump, when asked if he had “demonized immigrants” during the midterms campaign, replied: “No, I want them to come into the country. But they have to come in legally.”Acosta persisted, saying: “They are hundreds of miles away. That is not an invasion.”At that point, the president snapped.”Honestly, I think you should let me run the country. You run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be higher,” Trump said.As the reporter continued, Trump declared: “That’s enough, put down the mic” and walked away from his own podium, as if leaving.The intern attempted to grab the microphone from Acosta, who nevertheless tried to shout out one last question.Waving his finger, Trump berated him.”I’ll tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN,” he said.When NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the mic for the next question, he defended Acosta as a “diligent reporter” — earning Trump’s ire.”I’m not a fan of yours either. To be honest. You aren’t the best,” he said.Looking back at Acosta, who again rose up in his own defense, Trump added: “When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people.”In response, CNN said “this president’s ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far,” in a statement.”They are not only dangerous, they are disturbingly un-American.”last_img

Houston Monthly Vehicle Sales Up Nearly 30 Percent In August

first_img 00:00 /00:49 Listen Houston-area auto dealers sold 28,399 vehicles in August. That’s an increase of 28.2 percent from July, but a drop of 7.2 percent from August 2015.Consumer confidence jumped nationwide last month. That showed up locally, with men and women spending more on big-ticket items.“I believe that the aggressive factory incentives and pretty strong dealer discounts that have been in place now, I think they’re having an effect as well,” says Steve McDowell, president of InfoNation and publisher of TexAuto Facts. “And of course we’re getting to the end of the model year, which means they push pretty hard to clear out the previous year’s models.”SUVs and pick-up trucks sold briskly, thanks in large part to low gasoline prices. By contrast, auto sales continued to fall.Nationally, new vehicle sales hit 1,511,000 units in August. That’s down 0.7 percent from July and 3.5 percent from a year ago.

Quantum guessing game reveals insight into strongerthanquantum correlations

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — In information processing, physicists are often in search of ways to turn classical strategies into quantum ones, with the implication that the quantum version is somehow stronger, faster, or more secure than its classical counterpart. However, quantum strategies do not always perform better than classical ones. As a case in point, a new study has compared the strength of classical and quantum correlations in a simple number guessing game and found no difference in performance. Further, the physicists found that a third form of correlations – post-quantum correlations – could outperform both quantum and classical forms. Post-Quantum Correlations: Exploring the Limits of Quantum Nonlocality More information: Mafalda L. Almeida, et al. “Guess Your Neighbor’s Input: A Multipartite Nonlocal Game with No Quantum Advantage.” Physical Review Letters 104, 230404 (2010). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.104.230404 Copyright 2010 PhysOrg.com. All rights reserved.

The content is provided for information purposes only.center_img In their study, Mafalda Almeida from the ICFO-Institut de Ciencies Fotoniques in Barcelona and coauthors found that classical and quantum correlations performed equally in a game called “Guess Your Neighbor’s Input.” The game involves a group of players in a ring who each receive an input number of either 0 or 1. The point of the game is that each player tries to guess the number of the person to their right. Of course, players are not allowed to know any information about their neighbor’s numbers before guessing, nor to communicate after having received their numbers. In order to win the game, players are allowed to share physical resources, such as classical or quantum correlations. Importantly, all these resources must be “no-signaling”; that is, they cannot enable instantaneous communication.The no-signaling principle is fundamental for physicists dealing with the concept of nonlocality. In nonlocality, one object can influence another object at a distance, such as through entanglement. However, this phenomenon cannot be used to send information faster than light, which prevents a direct conflict with Einstein’s theory of relativity. Nonlocal correlations, which physicists define as those violating a Bell inequality, are important because they serve as a key resource for quantum information processing.However, in the game in this study, the researchers found that players gained no advantage at guessing the correct numbers by using quantum resources compared to classical ones. This makes sense, since it seems that players should require signaling in order to improve their guessing accuracy, and neither quantum nor classical correlations involve signaling.Yet when the physicists looked at what happened when the players use no-signaling correlations (that is, correlations that satisfy the no-signaling principle) that are even stronger than those allowed in quantum mechanics (i.e. they had a higher degree of violation of a Bell inequality), they did find a surprise. No-signaling correlations could actually outperform the quantum and classical correlations, suggesting that quantum correlations obey a stronger version of the no-signaling principle.“Our study highlights a fundamental difference between quantum correlations and certain post-quantum correlations (that is, correlations stronger than those allowed in quantum mechanics, but which nevertheless obey the no-signaling principle),” Nicolas Brunner, coauthor and a physicist at the University of Bristol, told PhysOrg.com. “This is significant because it strongly indicates that quantum correlations could obey a stronger version of the no-signaling principle.”This game is the first that involves entanglement among more than two bits (called “multipartite entanglement”) to identify some of the boundary (or gap) between quantum correlations and the stronger no-signaling correlations. However, the results also raise further questions, such as what kind of physical principle might limit quantum non-local correlations? Why do (theoretical) post-quantum correlations seem to not exist in nature? And if they did exist, could these correlations be used for other information tasks? Right now, these questions are likely a long way from being answered.

Canada names suspect in body parts case

first_img Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Associated PressOTTAWA, Ontario (AP) – A porn actor is wanted in a gruesome case of dismembered body parts that were mailed to different places including the headquarters of the Conservative Party of Canada, police said.Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, is wanted for homicide, Montreal police said Wednesday at a news conference.According to an official close to the investigation Magnotta worked as a porn actor and there is video of the crime. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk publicly about those details. Police said Magnotta is also known by the names Eric Clinton Newman and Vladimir Romanov. They described him as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall (1.78 meters) with blue eyes and black hair.His internet presence indicates he is a bisexual porn actor and model.Police discovered the severed foot after Jenni Bryne, a top political adviser to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, opened a bloodstained box at Conservative party headquarters Tuesday.When Bryne opened the box, a foul odor overcame the office.“It was such a horrible odor. I’m sure many of us will not forget it,” Conservative Party spokesman Fred DeLorey said.Police said the package was addressed to the Conservative Party of Canada and not to a specific person.Canada Post wouldn’t comment on the discoveries.Eric Schorer, the manager of the building where the suspect lived, said Magnotta had been living there for about four months but hadn’t been seen around in a while. He said there were never any complaints about noise in the unit, and that Magnotta passed a credit test to rent there.“He seemed like a nice guy,” Schorer said.Richard Payette, who lived across the hall from Magnotta, said the door of Apartment 208 was left open for part of the day on Wednesday. Payette said there was an overwhelming smell drifting out into the hallway, like bad meat.

Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Top Stories Magnotta, believed to originally be from Toronto, was renting an apartment in a working-class Montreal neighborhood. It was behind that building that police found a man’s torso in a suitcase in a heap of garbage Tuesday, police said. That same day, a foot was found in a package mailed to the Conservative party headquarters in Ottawa, and a hand found at postal warehouse in the Canadian capital. The package with the hand was addressed to the Liberal Party of Canada. Early testing shows the three body parts come from the same man, police said.Police in masks combed through the blood-soaked Montreal studio apartment on Wednesday. A blood stained mattress remained there after they left.“For most of the officers that were there all night long this is the kind of crime scene they’ve never seen in their career,” Montreal Police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere said.Lafreniere said they are investigating the possibility that other body parts might have been mailed. He said the suspect and the victim knew each other. He said it isn’t linked to organized crime.The packages with the foot and the hand had been mailed to Ottawa from Montreal. It wasn’t clear why.“As a father, I would have trouble sleeping at night knowing that the suspect was in my neighborhood,” Lafreniere said. Comments   Share   last_img read more

first_imgCyprus and Israel sign MoU on kidney transplantsCyprus and Israel on Tuesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation in the field of kidney transplants.The agreement was signed by Minister of Health George Pamboridis and his Israeli counterpart Yakov Litzman in the framework of the first trilateral meeting on health between Cyprus, Greece and Israel.The agreement was signed at the Presidential Palace following a bilateral meeting between the two ministers.The ministers of health from Cyprus, Greece and Israel were earlier received by President Nicos Anastasiades.Pamboridis said the agreement is very important since it will allow people who seek to donate kidneys to their loved ones will have a better opportunity to do so through paired donations.The co-operation between the two countries creates a larger pool of potential donors and increases the chances for successful organ exchange between donor-recipient pairs. The programme aims at helping patients in need of kidney transplant and have a living donor available.The memorandum is the result of a joint effort between the specialists in the area of transplantations from the two countries, as well as of the Transplant Centre of the State of Israel and the Transplant Council of Cyprus.“It is an important medical agreement that could save lives of Cypriots and Israelis,” Litzman said.“The excellent results of the Cyprus Transplant Centre have been recognised at international level, a fact that is also confirmed by today’s signed co-operation with Israel, a country with well recognised experience in the field of transplantations,” Pamboridis said.The three ministers issued a joint declaration on intent to co-operate on health issues. These included the health effects of desalinated water and air pollution; emergency preparedness for joint activity during disease outbreaks and natural and man-made disasters; health promotion, mutual purchase or stockpiling and back-up inventories of pharmaceuticals, blood products and vaccines, for routine and emergency use.In addition, bilateral meetings took place between the ministers of Cyprus and Greece and later on between Greece and Israel.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
