As Assam plans to release National Register of Citizens, CM Sonowal assures “genuine Indians” need not worry

first_imgWith Assam on the edge ahead of the publication of the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC), Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal sought to dispel apprehensions saying “genuine” Indians missing from the citizenship register would get enough opportunities to incorporate their names. Massive preparations are in place to ensure peace and no one will be allowed to take law in their hands after publication of the first draft of the NRC, a list of the State’s citizens, on December 31, the chief minister said here on Wednesday.“No one should have any apprehensions. If the name of a genuine Indian citizen is missing in the part draft of the NRC, he or she will get proper chance to incorporate it,” Mr. Sonowal told PTI here. He also made it clear that the government would tolerate no violence.“We have received central forces and they are being deployed across the State to ensure peace. No untoward incident will be allowed to take place,” Mr. Sonowal said. A massive exercise to update the NRC is being carried out in Assam following a directive of the Supreme Court in 2005. However, the exercise started as late as 2015 under the Congress regime. It got a major push only after the BJP came to power with “illegal immigration from Bangladesh” as a poll plank.The apex court had ordered that the first draft of the NRC be published by December 31 after completing the scrutiny of over two crore claims along with that of around 38 lakh people whose documents were suspect. Mr. Sonowal said 40,000 government officials, including deputy commissioners of the districts, sub divisional officers and circle officers, are involved in the massive exercise which has been going on in 6,500 NRC centres.“The district administrations have been holding regular meetings with various socio-cultural, students organisations, senior citizens and writers seeking their help in peaceful publication of the part draft of the NRC. We hope the process will be completed smoothly,” he said. Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba spent two days in the State last week, reviewing preparations for the publication of the part draft of the NRC and security arrangements, as ensuring peace in the state is a top priority for the Centre and the state governments, officials said. Of the 3.28 crore applications submitted, there was confusion over the inclusion of 29 lakh people who had submitted certificates issued by ‘gram panchayats’ as proof of identity, after a Gauhati High Court order in February had deemed ‘panchayat’ certificates invalid, the officials said. The Supreme Court set aside the High Court order and upheld the validity of the certificates as identity proof if they were followed up with proper verification. The apex court also asked authorities to stick to the original deadline for the publication of the draft NRC and include names of those whose claims were verified.The NRC was last updated in Assam way back in 1951. Then, it had recorded 80 lakh citizens in the State. Since then, the process of identification of illegal immigrants in Assam has been debated and become a contentious issue in the State’s politics. A six-year agitation demanding identification and deportation of illegal immigrants was launched by the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) in 1979. It culminated with the signing of the Assam Accord on August 15, 1985 in the presence of the then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.last_img read more

Greek Police Hunt Gun-Toting Soccer Team Owner who Invaded Field

first_imgATHENS – With Greek soccer’s Super League suspended after PAOK owner Ivan Savvidis stormed the field with a gun in his holster to protest a disallowed goal, police were searching to arrest him after he vanished following the game’s cancellation.Savvidis, a Greek-Russian businessman with close ties to Prime Minister and Radical Left SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras, who authorized putting the league in limbo, is owner of a TV station, tobacco company as well as Makedonia Palace Hotel and Souroti Water, the league’s main sponsors.Savvidis, a Georgian-born businessman of Greek ancestry and a former member of the Russian parliament, has holdings in Thessaloniki port and had pleaded for the government to erase big fines imposed on his tobacco company before he bought it.Chaos erupted when Savvidis took to the field at his Thessalonki team’s Toumba stadium wearing the handgun on his belt although Greek laws prevent even police from carrying firearms in sports arenas.Despite that, an arrest warrant that was issued had charged him only with going onto the field – he did it earlier in the game – and not with bringing a weapon it was reported he was licensed to otherwise carry.The image brought ridicule to Greece outside the country and a warning from soccer’s international governing body FIFA that the country’s national team could face a ban even as it is scheduled to play a friendly match on March 23 – in Toumba Stadium.It was the latest in a series of violent incidents and came after Greece’s soccer federation mysteriously erased a series of penalties on PAOK after another violent incident in which the coach of an opposing team was hit in the face with a towel holder thrown from the stands, where fans are allowed to set off incendiary flares and commonly toss objects.The Super League as it is called has been beset with constant violence, threats against referees, charges of match-fixing and is controlled by wealthy interests with strong government influence but has descended into farce and out of control with the soccer federation, Greece’s sports authorities and the government doing almost nothing to stop it until the Savvidis gun incident brought embarrassing international attention.The arrest warrant – not for the gun – was issued by a prosecutor, SKAI TV said, and set police off trying to find one of the country’s most prominent businessman who couldn’t be found initially.Savvidis though was reportedly also being investigated for possession of an object that could cause harm in a sporting venue.PAOK chairman Ivan Savvidis invades the pitch on March 11, 2018. (Photo by Eurokinissi/Antonis Nikolopoulos)Tatyana Gordina, the deputy CEO in charge of corporate communications at Savvidis’ Russia-based Agrocom Group, said he hadn’t made any threatening gestures nor pulleed the gun or aimed it at anyone and was only carrying it openly – in violation of the law.“There were no threats made by Ivan Savvidis, especially not involving the use of a weapon, during yesterday’s match,” she said without explaining why just wearing a gun on the field wasn’t a threat.“There was an emotional walk out onto the field, probably a breach of sporting regulations, and nothing more. Most of the headlines in the Greek press exaggerate the facts,” she said, dismissing it as nothing.Another four people involved in the incidents that led to the PAOK match against AEK of Athens – the league’s two leading teams this year who were on course to meet in the championship final, a rarity in a sport dominated by Athens-based Olympiakos and Panathinaikos – were also wanted by police.SHUT IT DOWNThe incident brought the involvement of Tsipras who met with Deputy Sports Minister Giorgos Vassiliadis, and said it went too far even for Greece’s tolerant standards in which violence is part of the game, especially off the field, and now on it.“I don’t care about the political cost. This issue must end and everybody responsible will be held accountable,” Tsipras reportedly said during the meeting before authorizing the shutdown of the league, which has happened before only to spring back into action.Justice Minister Stavros Kontonis had previously been the Sports Minister and vowed to crack down on violence but so far had said nothing about the gun incident with Savvidis a close ally of the Premier and SYRIZA.Vassiliadis told reporters that a new set of stricter rules will be enforced “after spending three years trying to clean up the game.” He added, “We will not allow anybody to deter us from this path, even if tough decisions are required in consultation with UEFA (European’s soccer’s governing body.)”That echoed similar tough talk before incidents were forgotten and the games allowed to go on again until the next troubles that inevitably erupt and are either ignored or, critics said, implicitly condoned by the soccer federation, sports authority and government.Vasileiadis said the league would not begin again “if there is not a new, clear framework agreed to by all so we can move forward with conditions and regulations,” without explaining why he didn’t just order it.PAOK chairman Ivan Savvidis invades the pitch on March 11, 2018. (Photo by Eurokinissi/Antonis Nikolopoulos)“The government for the past three years has given great battles to manage to clean up the troubled football sector. We have won a lot, but much more remains to be done,” the minister said.“In any case, we will not allow all this effort to be endangered, we will not allow phenomena of the past to be resurrected,” he added, although all governments have and have failed to stop it despite a long line of promises, vows and alleged crackdowns.After the FIFA warning, he said he didn’t care. “Let there be Grexit in soccer, we do not care,” referring to a potential international ban. “Unless club owners stage a moratorium and accept the inclusion in the rule book of penalties for their inflammatory statements, we are not going to back down.”He added: “We cannot have the people who were in favor of sanitizing [Greek soccer] do things like that and fight. They all have a responsibility.” He was to convene a meeting March 13 of the Super League board and with officials from clubs who oppose the suspension of play.The picture of a wealthy team owner carrying a gun onto the field brought a new fusillade of criticism of Tsipras and SYRIZA, which is riddled with anarchist and terrorist sympathizers, for a series of rampages across Athens that targeted banks, foreign embassies, and even the Leftist party’s headquarters, with no one arrested, forcing Tsipras to plead he was not soft on crime before the violence escalated again, this time in soccer.THE FIX IS INNew Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who was on a tour of the United States, said the government had shown it had only empty promises to rein in Greece’s oft-ridiculed and violent soccer and said the new images set back the game, and the country, for years.PAOK chairman Ivan Savvidis invades the pitch on March 11, 2018. (Photo by Eurokinissi/Antonis Nikolopoulos)The center-left Movement for Change said promises by the government, which includes the pro-austerity, marginal, jingoistic Independent Greeks (ANEL) to clean up the game were really a smokescreen to let the wealthy owners with their fingers in the government and businesses keep corrupting the game for their own enrichment.Stavros Theodorakis, head of the To Potami party that was folded into Movement for Change said aftermeeting Tsipras that, “Mafiosi gravitate to football in all countries … However, if we do not now impose strict rules and laws, if we don’t take heads, we’ll be repeatedly faced with such behavior.”A well-known New Democracy MEP, Giorgos Kyrtsos, said he feared the government – with PAOK’s penalties being waived for previous violence – was trying to insure that Savvidis” team would win the title.Kyrtsos said there was an “amalgamation of Russian oligarch corruption, political reasoning a la Maduro and SYRIZA hypocrisy,” partly a reference to Venezuela’s near dictator Nicolas Maduro, who is admired by Tsipras, a former Communist youth leader.Kyrtsos warned that, “rigging the (football) championship by the government in favor of PAOK will cost it dearly”.WEAVE OF INTERESTSthe coalition’s promises to clean up soccer were nothing but a smokescreen to allow vested FIFA, which has done virtually nothing to force Greece to stop soccer troubles, this time said the national team wouldn’t be allowed in international play if “the competent bodies” fail to “take proper actions … to eradicate all sorts of violence in order to guarantee the smooth running of the national competitions.”“The FIFA monitoring committee … strongly condemns the recent incidents in Greece and urges all national football stakeholders to act immediately to put an end to the unacceptable situation arising in Greek football,” a FIFA statement said.European soccer’s governing body UEFA condemned the incident and said because it “occurred in a domestic competition, any disciplinary measure to be imposed falls under the jurisdiction of the relevant bodies of the Hellenic Football Federation,” staying far away from it. Greek teams have failed miserably for years in European play.Savvidis has close links with the new leadership of the soccer federation, led by Vangelis Grammenos – and was able to arrange for the national team to play at his stadium and for its next game on March 27 to be screened live on Epsilon TV, which he also owns.It wasn’t clear how long the suspension would last as PAOK and AEK, if they continue winning, could clash again in the Greek Cup final a year after even more violent incidents at Volos between their fans injured dozens of people and police officers.GREEN WAVEPanathinaikos said the government was unfairly punishing the whole league to protect Savvidis and spoke of a “tried and failed” aimed at “issuing a pardon to the all the indecent and immoral incidents recorded for the umpteenth time by one particular grand official of a soccer team, who enjoys the government’s favor.”“This decision hurts all the other clubs that did not provoke or participate in the incidents, and dissolves the league that sought a new balance with the efforts made by many parties,” the Panathinaikos statement added.The shutdown came quickly and caught some teams off-guard, including Apollon Smyrnis, which had already gone to Ioannina before its March 12th game as cancelled.“Apollon is the only club to pay both in psychological and financial terms for the decision, which we heard of but until three hours before kick-off has not been officially communicated to us,” the Athens club stated.“We have paid good money to travel and stay at Ioannina and now we will have to repeate those expenses in the future,” Apollon protested, asking for a reinbursement.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

NDP calls on Trudeau to comment on sexual harassment allegations against Calgary

first_imgIt’s been four days since news broke of sexual harassment allegations against Liberal Calgary MP Darshan Kang and now the NDP wants to know why Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has not commented on it yet.“I’m particularly surprised that there’s no statement,” said New Democrat Critic on the Status of Women Sheila Malcolmson. “Liberal standard operating procedure is that the MPs are removed from caucus.”The Hill-Times first reported the allegations on Friday and that they came from an unnamed employee at Kang’s northeast Calgary constituency office.“We were made aware of the allegations and referred them, as per the House of Commons process, to the Chief Human Resources Officer,” said Charles-Eric Lepine, the Government Whip’s Office Chief of Staff, in an email to 660 NEWS.Specific details of the allegations are unknown and nothing has been proven.Multiple requests have been sent to Kang for comment, but so far there’s been no statement from him or a spokesperson and the only statement from the Liberals on the matter has been from Lepine.Malcolmson points to the suspension of former Liberal MPs Massimo Pacetti and Scott Andrews, removed over allegations of personal misconduct in November 2015.“He immediately removed two members of Parliament from his caucus and that was with the understanding of innocent until proven guilty,” she said. “I think it’s out of keeping with his past actions, so I’m curious as to why.”They were booted for good from the party several months later following an investigation.Malcolmson said a proper investigation in due course is vital not only to the accuser, but Kang himself.last_img read more

Infanticides le nombre de cas serait largement sousestimé

first_imgInfanticides : le nombre de cas serait largement sous-estiméDes chercheurs de l’Inserm viennent de publier un rapport montrant que le phénomène du néonaticide est beaucoup plus fréquent que ne l’indiquent les chiffres officiels.Alertés par une analyse datant de 2005, qui montrait une sous-estimation importante du nombre d’homicides sur des nourrissons, des scientifiques de l’Inserm, établissement public de recherche à caractère scientifique et technologique, ont recommencé une enquête en prenant en compte les données judiciaires. Ils se sont rendus dans 26 tribunaux afin de relever le nombre de nourrissons tués par leur mère le jour de la naissance. Et leurs résultats montrent que 5 fois plus de cas sont recensés par la justice que par les chiffres de l’administration ! En prenant en compte également les cas où les corps des bébés ne sont pas retrouvés, les chercheurs pensent pouvoir affirmer que le phénomène reste très largement sous-estimé en France.À lire aussiUne femme donne naissance à un bébé cyclope en EgyptePlus que des chiffres, l’Inserm a dressé un profil de ces mères infanticides : il s’agit majoritairement de femmes travaillant, vivant en couple, qui ont déjà au moins 3 enfants et qui sont dans une grande solitude morale. Aucun déni de grossesse n’a été recensé : elles se savent enceintes, mais mentent à leur entourage. Les pères ignorent la situation dans quasiment tous les cas.Le docteur Tursz, pédiatre qui a mené l’enquête, a souhaité qu’une solution soit mise en place pour détecter ces femmes vulnérables afin de pouvoir à l’avenir connaître leur souffrance et leur proposer des solutions adaptées.Le 9 décembre 2010 à 12:24 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Clinton We owe him an open mind chance to lead

first_imgNEW YORK — Hillary Clinton told supporters Wednesday that they owed Donald Trump “an open mind and a chance to lead,” urging acceptance of the celebrity businessman’s stunning win after a campaign that appeared poised until Election Day to make her the first woman elected U.S. president.Addressing stricken staff and voters at a New York City hotel, Clinton said she had offered to work with Trump on behalf of a country that she acknowledged was “more deeply divided than we thought.”Her voice vibrated with emotion at times, especially as she acknowledged that she had not “shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling.”Flanked by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and daughter, Chelsea Clinton Mezvinsky, Clinton then made a direct plea to “all the little girls” watching: “Never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every opportunity in the world and chance to pursue your dreams.”The speech followed a dramatic election night in which Trump captured battleground states like Florida, North Carolina and Ohio and demolished a longstanding “blue wall” of states in the Upper Midwest that had backed every Democratic presidential candidate since Clinton’s husband won the presidency in 1992.Democrats — starting with Clinton’s campaign staff and the White House — were left wondering how they had misread their country so completely. Mournful Clinton backers gathered outside the hotel Wednesday.last_img read more

Fire strikes Vancouver apartment complex

first_imgTwo people leapt for safety from the second story of a burning apartment building Saturday as Vancouver police officers rescued two others from a downstairs unit, according to the Vancouver Fire Department.The fire was reported at about 6:50 p.m. at Fort Vancouver Terrace Apartments, 4710 Plomondon St., in Vancouver’s Bagley Downs neighborhood, according to emergency radio traffic. Multiple callers reported that one of the buildings in the complex was on fire and that someone had jumped from the building.The first firefighters arriving on the scene saw flames venting from the roof of the apartment building and blocking the primary escape route to four apartment units, said firefighter-paramedic Darrin Deming.“There was fire engulfing the entire breezeway of four units,” Deming said. “We pulled a hose line and knocked down that fire, then continued interior to continue the fire attack and conduct an initial search for victims.”Deming said firefighters were assisted by Vancouver police officers, who were able to rescue two people through the backside of a ground floor apartment.last_img read more

DOD Looks to Congress for Direction on Eliminating Unneeded Capacity

first_imgDuring a hearing Thursday of the House Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee, DOD’s installations chief acknowledged the department’s recent failure to secure lawmakers’ support for a new round of base closures and reached out to find common ground on an approach that would allow the military to rightsize its infrastructure.“We realize we have asked for six years and for six years, Congress has said no. We can’t keep doing that. We have to work with you on a common way forward that will allow us to make prudent reductions in our infrastructure,” Lucian Niemeyer, assistant secretary for energy, installations and environment, told the panel during his opening remarks.While emphasizing the need to ensure “our basing infrastructure is ideally sized to increase the lethality of our forces,” Niemeyer said officials are undertaking a comprehensive review of how and where they base new forces and capabilities — including hypersonic systems, autonomous vehicles and cyber forces — called for in the National Defense Strategy. “All of these concepts which are called for, and this country desperately needs, need to have a basing infrastructure that will allow us to deploy and train them effectively,” he said.In the absence of requesting a BRAC round this year, the department is looking at ways to use it facilities more efficiently. Officials, for example, are assessing whether an optimal number of personnel are assigned to each building as part of their effort to determine how much excess infrastructure DOD is carrying.“Our efforts will allow us to work with Congress further on fair, objective and transparent options for future base realignments and closures,” Niemeyer said.Beyond several comments and questions from Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.), BRAC was not an overarching topic during the rest of the hearing. A webcast can be found on the committee website. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

GameStop set to offer really old consoles with brand new warranties

first_imgGameStop will this weekend launch a new pilot program that sees the store embrace retro gaming on a massive scale. Stores spread across New York City and Birmingham, Alabama will start accepting old consoles, games, and accessories for trade-in.From April 25, these GameStop stores will start accepting consoles that date back as far as 1985. That means you can trade a NES, SNES, N64, Genesis, Dreamcast, or PlayStation along with any of each platform’s games and accessories. So if you have some old hardware lying around gathering dust and can get to one of the stores taking part, you could grab yourself some store credit or new hardware/games.It’s unlikely GameStop will be offering a lot of cash for these old systems, so the more exciting side of this equation is actually buying them. GameStop is giving itself 2 months from the April 25 launch date to build up stock, carry out any repairs, and offer these classic systems for sale along with a brand new warranty. So come August, we could be buying guaranteed working condition very old consoles. That’s great news for someone who say, has just had their NES or Genesis die on them, or is missing a game or accessory from their old platform of choice. The only caveat here being that the refurbished stock will only be offered online, not in-store.If all goes well and this pilot program proves popular, GameStop intends to roll it out nationally to thousands of stores, with the number of games on sale expected to surpass 5,000 titles. I can see a few console and game bundles appearing too, and for much less than the cost of a new PS4 or Xbox One.You may notice that the Sega Saturn is missing from the list of consoles being accepted. GameStop hasn’t explained why, and hopefully it’s just an oversight on their part and it will get added to the pilot.[GameStop image courtesy of Mike Mozart on Flickr]last_img read more

In addition to reporting, Nuance’s solutions feature image exchange, workflow orchestration and advanced analytics capabilities that allow physicians to analyze reports and mine data to gain new insights and make decisions more efficiently.The healthcare organizations that recently switched to Nuance solutions include:Capital Health (Pennington, N.J.);City of Hope (Duarte, Calif.);Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (Monterey, Calif.);Desert Radiology (Las Vegas);LRGHealthcare (Laconia, N.H.);Medical University of South Carolina (Charleston, S.C.);Northeast Georgia Health System (Gainesville, Ga.);Orion/Tower Imaging (Florida); andTennova Healthcare (Knoxville, Tenn.).Coordinated Care Health Network (CCHN), Oklahoma’s largest health information exchange (HIE) and a Nuance partner, is another example of how Nuance cloud-based technology can drive patient, clinical and economic outcomes. CCHN sought to disrupt the current HIE industry by providing its 150 subscribing members with more than just the ability to exchange data/images – they wanted to improve awareness across different care locations. With Nuance, clinicians can obtain greater insights into patients’ imaging history, automatically serve up timely, patient-specific information through artificial intelligence (AI) innovation, to make more appropriate clinical decisions. With Nuance PowerShare at the foundation, organizations in the CCHN HIE are now realizing up to 80 percent savings over previous costs for sharing data across the HIE, while significantly improving care decisions, workflow and productivity, according to the company. “At a time when there is mounting industry pressure to prove value and increase efficiency, Nuance’s suite of solutions enables our radiologists to simultaneously enhance patient care, manage their workload and meet documentation requirements. In fact, we chose Nuance PowerShare because of its proven track record to immediately deliver time and value back to our clinicians,” said Brian Yeaman, M.D., chief executive and co-founder of CCHN. “Nuance’s medical imaging solutions have helped us rewrite the playbook on information sharing among member organizations. The sophisticated integration capabilities and practical ease-of-use features allow our providers to devote more time to their primary mission – patient care.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more Feature | Information Technology | June 27, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Smart Algorithm Extracts Data from Radiology Reports Radiology reports may contain information essential to figuring out a patient’s condition. read more News | PACS Accessories | August 30, 2017 Nine U.S. Health Systems Choose Nuance to Improve Radiology Reporting Solutions also help improve image analysis and sharing capabilities Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more News | PACS | July 02, 2019 Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical docu read more News | Enterprise Imaging | June 27, 2019 Ambra Health Announces Integration With Box Ambra Health announced an integration with Box to enable the sharing of medical imaging directly from within Box’s… read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Konica Minolta Healthcare Partners With DiA Imaging Analysis for AI-based Cardiac Ultrasound Analysis DiA Imaging Analysis has partnered with Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. to expand analysis capabilities of… read more last_img read more
