PNB scam CBI seeks narco tests on accused Shetty


first_imgMumbai: The CBI on Wednesday urged a special court here to grant permission to conduct polygraph and narco analysis tests on Gokulnath Shetty, a former Punjab National Bank official and key conspirator in the multi-crore fraud case in which diamond merchants Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi are the prime accused. Shetty, who is alleged to have played a key role in the Rs 13,700-crore loan fraud while working as the deputy manager at PNB’s Brady House branch in Mumbai, was arrested in March last year. In the application moved before special CBI court judge J C Jagdale, the central investigating agency said it needs to know about the “pecuniary benefits” received by the accused. “The assets and quid pro quo revealed so far during the investigation is minuscule as compared to the quantum of the fraud or Rs 7080.86 crore. In order to ascertain his (Shetty’s) other motives and details of undue pecuniary advantage obtained by him, as one of the main conspirators, it is very much essential to conduct polygraph test and narco analysis test,” reads the application filed by the CBI. The court will hear the plea on August 14.

In the narco analysis test, a person is put in a semi-conscious condition in which imagination is neutralised, thus making it difficult to lie. The Anti-Corruption wing of the CBI had booked Shetty and his wife Ashalata for allegedly amassing a large number of movable and immovable properties during the period between April 1, 2011 and May 31, 2017, the day he retired.last_img read more

Dubbed Mobile Learning Week, and organized in partnership with the conglomerate Nokia, the meeting has brought together close to 200 policy-makers, educators, academics and researchers from across the globe in an effort to provide insight on how mobile telephones can support teachers and students alike.Initiatives promoting mobile learning have already been spearheaded across a wide range of countries – including Mozambique, Pakistan, South Africa, Niger, Kenya, and Mongolia – where policies have already provided access to distance education in far-flung communities and improved literacy among girls and women.According to recent data, 90 per cent of the world’s population now has access to mobile networks, prompting growing enthusiasm for the potential of mobile devices to improve education access and quality. 12 December 2011With mobile telephone access reaching over five billion of the world’s population, the United Nations educational agency today announced the launch of an initiative to harness the technology and bring mobile phone use into the classroom. read more

Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin on Monday handed over the certificate to the agency at the Herdmanston Lodge.“I think it is another step in the right direction. It is consistent with the mandate of Bureau; if you are promoting standards and you assisting in the accrediting of various bodies, it is only natural that the bureau is accredited as well,” the minister said while commending the agency.Attaining the ISO9001:2015 certificate has always been a goal for the agency for a number of years, according to Director of the GNBS, Candelle Walcott-Bostwick, who noted that the bureau has worked consistently towards improving its system internally.“We cannot sell standards or tell persons how standards will benefit them and we are not demonstrating that. We are indeed using the standards to improve our system so that we can become more efficient.”According to the Director, last year the agency made a commitment to achieve the certificate in one year; this was achieved in January 2018. She commended her staff for their dedication to ensuring all of its Standards Operating Procedures were in keeping with the requirements.“Now that we have received this certification, it is a demonstration that we will provide quality, consistent and reliable services…we will consistently improve our internal system so that we can serve you better.”The ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system. Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.The GNBS aims to improve the quality of goods and services in Guyana by partnering with Government, consumers, and industry through the process of Standardisation.It also aims to promote the National Quality Infrastructure for economic, social development and consumer protection in partnership with key sectors through Standards, Metrology and Conformity Assessment.The Bureau on Monday also launched the World Trade Organisation/Technical Barrier to Trade Agreement (TBT) Enquiry Point (database) to enhance local trade bodies and improve trade relations with member states of the WTO.Gaskin explained the TBT enquiry point is a mechanism used to notify international stakeholders of changes in trade regulations within WTO member states. He noted it also allows for countries to provide feedback on those changes.In March 2010, the GNBS was designated as the TBT Enquiry point for Guyana which was charged with supplying WTO and foreign countries, with information on compulsory local standards and technical regulations related to products under the TBT agreement. read more


Celebs bring Christmas cheer to sick kids at Crumlin hospital


first_imgWe started it off 10 years ago and this is the ninth ward walk. We came up with the concept after I was in hospital for seven weeks before I had my first child. It was at that time I was thinking, ‘my God what must it be like for parents and children’, and when my son was born healthy I said we’re going to give something back, and we came up with this idea.Keating said that the celebrities “are just delighted to come to the hospital” and that from the very start there has never been “any fuss” with the relaxed event.The celebrities visit on a voluntary basis, chat with the children and parents, and get photos taken.The three celebrities who take part every year are Brian Ormond, Brendan O’Carroll and Jenny O’Carroll. “The celebs are amazing – they love to meet them and have their photos taken,” said Valerie.“For a few moments they might forget what’s going on,” she said of the patients, adding that the children and parents love having the photographs to look back on later.The event will begin today with a sing-song before the 35 celebrities are broken up into four different groups to go visit different wards. The big number of celebrities this year means they can visit even more children.It’s just brilliant. For us the most important part of it is that the parents and the kids have a bit of fun today and they get a bit of cheering up.Heinz, who are the sponsors of Ward Walk, also made another generous donation which will go towards funding the day’s activities for children and families at the hospital.Celebrities visiting the children today include Brendan O’Carroll, Rosanna Davison, Pippa O’Connor, Holly Carpenter, Ruby Walsh, Laurence Kinlan, Mary Byrne, Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams.Geraldine Regan, Deputy CEO & Director of Nursing, said that around 100 very ill children will spend this Christmas in the hospital.“We do try to get as many children as we can home for Christmas,” she said. “Having a child with a serious illness puts a lot of strain on families, particularly at this time of year. That is why coming up to Christmas we try to have some fun in the hospital.”She said they are most grateful to Valerie and Gary Keating and Heinz  for their continuous support.Read:Vigil at children’s hospital to highlight medical card removal>Read: Special room for teen cancer patients to open in Crumlin Children’s Hospital> THIS CHRISTMAS DAY, almost 100 children will be at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin, unable to spend the day at home.But thanks to some very familiar faces, they will be getting a boost this Christmas time.This afternoon sees the hospital’s Heinz Celebrity Ward Walk take place, with more than 30 Irish celebrities taking part to brighten up the lives of the sick children there this festive season.Both the children and their families were extremely excited about the event, which is the ninth annual Heinz Celebrity Ward Walk.

DFG 2018 UCI Commercial Salmon Fishery Season Was Poor


first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The overall harvest and value of the 2018 commercial salmon fishery of Upper Cook Inlet (UCI)was poor. The 2018 UCI commercial harvest of approximately 1.3 million salmon was 61% less than the recent 10-year average annual harvest of 3.4 million fish, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Martin: “There’s many different avenues that could be addressed to help give relief to the fishing industry, not only the fishermen, but the processors, on down through all the helpers and all down through that. Could be relieving fees for certain things, waving them for a year, all sorts of different things just to keep people afloat to hopefully face another season, keep going.” The 2018 total run preseason forecast of sockeye salmon for UCI was 4.6 million fish, while the actual inseason run was 3.1 million fish, or 32% less than forecast.center_img President of the United Cook Inlet Drift Association David Martin said in his 47 years of fishing the Cook Inlet, 2018 was “probably the worst” season he’d seen.  He thanked the council for prompting the declaration. At last weeks Kenai City Council meeting members passed a resolution requesting Governor Walker declare an economic disaster for the Upper Cook Inlet Fisheries region and create a recovery plan following 2018’s low salmon returns.last_img read more


Behind Brockhamptons Texas Triumph At Austin City Limits Festival


first_img Facebook Email Go inside the boy band’s prolific—and tumultuous—path to its big-time Texas homecomingRiley Van StewardGRAMMYs Oct 6, 2018 – 9:55 am Beneath the sweltering heat of the Texas sun, Zilker Park bristles with the tents, stages and sounds of the Austin City Limits Festival (ACL.) Every wristband and sign is a bright collage of colors and bold fonts, and every act comes onstage to the screams of fans so enamored by the music and culture of this festival that they are willing to brave the Texas sun. For fans and artists alike, ACL perfectly captures the feeling of Austin.No act better encapsulates this mix of emotions, feelings and spirit than Brockhampton. The Internet generation’s most prominent boy band has recently been rocked by controversy, album delays, album cancellations, and label signings, but they have come to the heart of the lone-star state triumphant on the heels of their No. 1 album, Iridescence.Nine months ago, they were a different band. They were focusing more on rap lead by the cover boy of all three of the Saturation trilogy, Ameer Vann. Their sound was not mainstream by any stretch of the imagination, yet its roots were clearly in the emerging anti-pop rap of Tyler, the Creator and Odd Future. On Iridescence, Brockhampton has escaped all comparison to their predecessors. The sound is experimentally shifting from rap to electronic psychedelia, tapping into the same teen-angst that built such a loyal fan base.Few other artists could claim a following so loyal—and at times impatient—as to complain about a nine-month wait between albums. The crowd made their thoughts clear: it was worth the wait. Twitter Behind Brockhampton’s Texas Triumph At Austin City Limits Festival News https://twitter.com/brckhmptn/status/1042989775983063041 Brockhampton’s Texas-Sized Triumph At ACL behind-brockhamptons-texas-triumph-austin-city-limits-festival Still prolific by most artists’ standards, the gap grew to nine months as Brockhampton met challenges and controversy. Their frontman and cover boy, Ameer Vann, often touted as the most talented rapper of the group by leader Kevin Abstract, faced a wave of allegations beginning on Twitter of physical and emotional abuse. The band was quick to respond, kicking Vann out and disavowing his actions. Vann had been an integral piece of the boy band’s image. They often stated that the quality of their music came from the quality of their friendship. So, fans were wary of the impact this would have on the mental-health and stability of the group. In many minds, this tour was Brockhampton’s response.Taking the stage in all black, Dom Mclennon lead the group out to “New Orleans.” A technical difficulty stopped his mic from working for the beginning of the song, but didn’t stop McLennon, who continued as if nothing happened. The show had begun, and Abstract proclaimed that Brockhampton is “The greatest boy band on earth” to the screams of the crowd.When Kevin asked his fans to put their arms up “Like you’re on a rollercoaster,” the simile was followed by thermal point-of-view images from a rollercoaster displayed on stage. The level of intricacy and detail on the screen behind the band was almost as exciting as the artists’ wild dances across the stage. On screen were shadow-puppets, close-ups, and cartoonish font spelling “peanut butter.” Visuals switched between highly saturated thermal imaging and black-and-white to fit the mood of the music. Often members of the band would kneel while they were not performing. And, then suddenly the group would erupt in monsterish, bold dance moves feeding off the energy of the crowd and each other.Some of the slickest twists were their performance of older songs. Instead of repeating the recorded renditions in a way that may clash with the new style of Iridescence, Brockhampton updated their classics to fit the tone of this new album and era. The greatest example was McLennon’s verse on “Bleach.” His call for moral action in an immobile society previously performed as pseudo-spoken word poetry turned to a soulful ballad.“Boogie” was the finale of this lively ordeal. The light swoon of a violin introduced what is easily the group’s most rambunctious, least-classically inspired single, and still the violin somehow fit into the larger narrative the group weaved on stage. They may be wild, they may be crazy as the Lone Star State itself, they may even be eclectic but their music speaks volumes beautifully and directly to the internet generation.Hozier Opens Up About “Nina Cried Power,” Reveals What’s On His PlaylistRead morelast_img read more

It’s the beginning of something. We waited for the right program to come along to stream on our owned platforms, and now we’ve found it.”Word of CNN’s changes come as Facebook is touting Watch’s momentum. According to Facebook, the number of users for the video service daily has grown to 140 million, up from 75 million six months ago, and now watch an average of 26 minutes of video daily (although Facebook is counting everyone who watched a minimum of 60 seconds of video).“Anderson Cooper Full Circle” will end its run on Facebook Watch on July 17 and then take a summer break before resuming on CNN’s digital platforms after Labor Day. CNN’s decision to move “Full Circle” to its own platforms was first reported by BI Prime.The majority of the audience for “Full Circle” on Facebook was between 13-54, according to Morse. He’s confident the show will find a robust viewership on CNN’s own platforms, noting that in the first quarter of 2019, Anderson’s “AC360” content had 4 million monthly video starts on the CNN mobile app alone, which was up more than six-fold from 2018.According to Shelley Venus, Facebook’s global video lead for news partnerships, CNN’s move to take “Full Circle” to its owned-and-operated properties fits into the social giant’s original premise in funding news content.“One of our intentions with the news in Watch program was to incubate new [intellectual property] with partners and figure out where that video content would be more successful for them in the long term with audiences, both on Watch and in general,” she said in a statement. “The CNN team has demonstrated that they are excited to bring the show to CNN’s core fans and site, and in the meantime, we will be applying the lessons learned over the past year to bring a new show to Facebook to test with them.”center_img CNN said it also will take insights it gleaned from “Anderson Cooper Full Circle” and apply them to “Go There,” which is designed to be a test for a different format.“We learned a number of things in the first year of the show,” Morse wrote in the staff memo. “We saw patterns in stories that resonated and observed how our audience wants to consume this mobile-first streaming content. Most important, we learned that the show’s real special sauce was the audience’s trust in Anderson and our CNN correspondents in the field.”Of the 21 news partners Facebook originally funded, it has renewed shows with about one-third of them, including CNN, ABC News, Business Insider, BuzzFeed News, Fox News Channel, Group Nine Media’s NowThis and Univision, according to Facebook. Popular on Variety After a year on Facebook Watch, CNN’s “Anderson Cooper Full Circle” daily news program will leave the social platform next month — and instead will run on the cable news network’s own digital properties starting in September.At the same time, CNN has set a new show for Facebook Watch slated to debut this summer: “Go There,” described as a single-topic daily news show running 10-15 minutes “built for the next generation of news junkies on Facebook,” according to the network. It will feature a new format in which CNN correspondents in the field will report directly from their mobile devices.The Cooper show relatively speaking was a hit on Facebook: Episodes of “Full Circle,” which have run Monday-Friday since July 2017, on average have reached 2 million people, according to CNN, and “we know it will perform well on our platforms too,” Andrew Morse, executive VP and GM of CNN Digital Worldwide, wrote in a memo to staff that was obtained by Variety.last_img read more

Analyst says Apple could have sold 6 million iPhone X units


first_imgApple hasn’t shared any exact number, but Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang calculated that Apple may have sold as many as 6 million iPhone X units this weekend alone, StreetInsider reported.With such a big number, it’s hard to grasp Apple’s success with the iPhone X. Last quarter, Apple sold 39.3 million iPhones when you combine all iPhone models. In other words, Apple usually sells around 1.75 million iPhones during a 4-day period.So this weekend was a huge weekend for Apple, even if you don’t take into account other iPhone models. The company sold more than 17 iPhone X units every single second during four days.Rosenblatt also says that Apple currently produces 3 million units per week. But this could increase to 4 million units per week in just a few weeks. Overall, Apple may have sold 15 million iPhone X units ever since it went on sale.Zhang says that most people buy the more expensive 256GB model. Apple is currently selling twice as many 256GB units of the iPhone X compared to the 64GB model.This should greatly improve Apple’s average selling price in the company’s next earnings report. Apple could end up selling 30 million iPhone X units during the current quarter that ends in December, and 40 million units during the next quarter. It turns out that a premium iPhone wasn’t a bad idea.Featured Image: Justin Sullivan/Getty Imageslast_img read more
