Chandigarh: Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who is facing a 20-year jail for raping his two disciples, has sought a parole of 42 days for tendering sprawling fields in his sects headquarters in Haryana’s Sirsa town, officials said on Sunday. “We are awaiting a reply from central security and intelligence agencies and also from the Sirsa District Magistrate that whether his parole at this point in time is feasible or not,” a government official told IANS, requesting anonymity.

The self-styled godman was sentenced in August 2017 for 20 years in jail for raping two women. A special CBI court in Panchkula this January also sentenced him and three others to life imprisonment for the murder of a journalist over 16 years ago. The 51-year-old is currently lodged at the high-security Sunaria jail in Rohtak.

As per the jail superintendent, Ram Rahim’s conduct in the jail is like a “disciplined inmate”. His conviction on August 25, 2017, had led to violence in Panchkula and Sirsa, leaving 41 people dead and over 260 injured. Ram Rahim was patronized by political leaders and parties of Punjab and Haryana for nearly two decades due to his ability to shift votes of his followers.
ATTAPEU, Laos – Rescuers searched Wednesday for scores of villagers left missing when part of a newly built hydroelectric dam broke in southeastern Laos, flooding the surrounding countryside and killing at least 24 people, officials said.Thousands of people lost their homes when the South Korean-built dam gave way on Monday, flooding surrounding villages.Hundreds took shelter in nearby towns, travelling by bus and pickup trucks and sleeping on plastic sheeting.“The water came so quick we just left the house and ran away,” said Phon Vuongchonpu, whose family of 12 fled as the floodwater rose to roof level. “We’ve lost everything: motorbike, furniture our cows and pigs.”Bounyong Phommachak, a Red Cross official, said 24 bodies had been recovered and 96 people were officially listed as missing. He said by phone that about 6,600 people had been displaced from their homes.China’s state news agency, Xinhua, which maintains one of the very few foreign news bureaus in Laos, reported that Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith said at a news conference that 131 people were missing and the homeless totalled 3,060. He did not give a death toll.The discrepancies in the tolls could be due to difficult communications and heavy rains in the area which have hampered rescue efforts.Photos and videos posted on social media showed people sitting on rooftops to escape the surging water, while others were carried to safety or rescued by boat.One of five auxiliary earth-fill dams at the project began visibly weakening on Friday, said Korea Western Power, one of two South Korean partners in the hydroelectric project.SK Engineering & Construction, the other Korean joint venture partner, said the top of the dam was swept away Sunday as workers were struggling to control the damage amid heavy rain. The situation worsened on Monday as water cascaded out of the reservoir, flooding seven out of 12 villages in the area, SK E&C said. It was helping to evacuate and rescue residents and sent its president and a team of 30 people to the disaster zone.Continued heavy rain and strong winds forecast for the area could hinder rescue efforts, and risks from flooding persisted in the mountainous region. A report by the intergovernmental Mekong River Commission said storms had caused water levels along the river to rise by 3-5 metres (9-15 feet) in the past week.Provincial authorities issued a call for emergency aid, and residents in Paksong were streaming to the evacuation shelter bringing food, as doctors attended to those needing help.“I feel safe here, but worry for my husband and son who are still in the village,” said Tem Namsakhunpiraded, who escaped the floodwaters with three of her children and a 6-month-old grandchild.The International Red Cross said food was a concern because village food supplies were drenched in the flooding. It was arranging for water purification units to be sent to the area to ensure supplies of clean drinking water.The presidential office in South Korea said President Moon Jae-in had ordered an emergency relief team to help with the disaster.The $1.02 billion project encompassing several river basins in a remote corner of southeastern Laos is the first hydroelectric dam to be built by a South Korean company, and it was unclear how severe the damage would be to the overall plan. The dam was due to begin operating in 2019, with 90 per cent of the power generated going to Thailand.Shares of companies affiliated with SK E&C sank on Wednesday on concerns over potential costs for compensation and other financial setbacks from the disaster.Laos has dozens of hydroelectric projects under construction and plans for sales of power to neighbouring countries, now accounting for about a third of its exports, to grow substantially.But dam building along the Mekong River and its tributaries, including those affected by this disaster, has raised concerns over environmental impact and other problems.International Rivers, a nongovernmental group generally critical of such projects, said the catastrophe showed the need to improve warning systems.“With over 70 hydropower projects currently built, under construction and planned across Lao PDR — most of them owned and operated by private companies — authorities must immediately review how dams are being planned, designed and managed,” the group said in a statement.___Associated Press writers Tong-hyung Kim and Youkyung Lee in Seoul, South Korea, contributed to this report. read more
VANCOUVER — Teck Resources (TSX:TECK.B) has announced plans to issue a special dividend to its shareholders, in addition to its regular dividend, and increase its share buyback program by $230 million.The diversified mining company, based in Vancouver, says the two measures are being taken because of Teck’s strong cash position.Its shareholders of record as of Dec. 15 will receive a supplemental dividend of 40 cents per share on top of the regular dividend, which is five cents per quarter.The total cost of the dividend payments on Dec. 29 will be $260 million. Teck will also spend an additional $230 million on its existing share buyback program to repurchase class B shares through the end of March.Teck’s B shares have recently traded about where they began 2017, just above $27, but were below $20 each in mid June. They closed at $27.06 on Thursday and opened Friday at $27.44, a gain of 1.4 per cent.Teck chairman Norman Keevil said in a statement that the board wants shareholders to benefit directly the company’s strong results.“We are also committed to adjusting our capital spending plans consistent with prudent management of our balance sheet as we move into 2018,” Keevil said in the statement, issued Thursday after the Toronto Stock Exchanged closed. read more

Rona CEO turns to food retailing veteran like himself to help with turnaround AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted May 3, 2013 3:32 pm MDT MONTREAL – Rona’s new chief executive has turned to a food retailing veteran like himself to help oversee the transformation of the home renovation company.Robert Sawyer has hired Alain Brisebois, 54, for the newly created position of chief commercial officer. He starts May 27.Both men have previously worked at supermarket chain Metro Inc.Brisebois, who will also hold the title of executive vice-president at Rona, is being brought on board to improve the struggling home improvement retailer’s operational efficiency and to develop synergy between its purchasing, merchandising, procurement and marketing activities.A 30-year veteran of the retail industry, Brisebois was lured away from convenience store chain Alimentation Couche-Tard (TSX:ATD.B), where he served as vice-president of purchasing and supply chain before moving up to senior vice-president of operations in 2010.He has also held key positions at Metro (TSX:MRU), including senior vice-president of the Ontario division.“I’m happy to rely on Alain’s extensive experience in retail to help us review our business processes, improve our efficiency and offer our customers a better shopping experience,” Sawyer said in announcing the move on Friday.Sawyer, 59, joined Rona last month following more than 30 years in grocery retailing, including nearly four years in the No. 2 position at Metro — another large Quebec-based retailer.Analyst Derek Dley of Canaccord Genuity said Brisbois seems like a very good addition as Rona’s reshapes its executive team.But he said the company still faces a weak home renovation spending market in Canada and continued pressure from Home Depot and other large rivals including Lowe’s.“It’s always good when you can bring good people to your team but how does it change the overall outlook for Rona? I don’t think it does, at least not in the near-term,” he said in an interview.“At some point we need to start seeing some earnings growth out of this company for the stock to really turn around and just given the challenges it’s still a very challenging market.”Dley expects Rona’s results on May 14 will once again demonstrate the challenging operating environment.Rona is expected to lose 10 cents per share in adjusted earnings in the first quarter, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.That would be the same loss as a year ago, but revenues are forecast to drop 3.7 per cent to $900 million.Rona is the largest Canadian distributor and retailer of hardware, home renovation and gardening products with a network of more than 800 corporate, franchise and affiliate retail stores and almost 28,000 employees. read more
Statistics Canada says auto sector boosts retail sales in August to $43.6B by Craig Wong, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 22, 2015 6:53 am MDT Last Updated Oct 22, 2015 at 12:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – Canadians who bought new and used cars in August helped boost retail sales for the fourth consecutive month.Statistics Canada said Thursday that higher sales at motor vehicle and parts dealers helped boost retail sales to $43.6 billion in August, up 0.5 per cent from the previous month.Excluding the auto subsector, retail sales were flat for the month.Economists had expected a gain of 0.1 per cent.“Overall, high consumer confidence, continued employment gains and low borrowing costs appear to be supporting the pace of household consumption growth for now,” said economist David Madani of Capital Economics.“But with the worst effects of the oil price shock arguably still ahead, we would expect to see some slowing in the pace of hiring and household spending in the months ahead.”TD Bank economist Brian DePratto said the result suggests there’s a chance growth in the third quarter may be better than the bank’s prediction of a 2.5 per cent annual pace.“Given the strong monthly momentum coming into the quarter, all signs point to a robust exit from the recession that marked the first half of the year,” DePratto said.The retail sales results follow a decision by the Bank of Canada on Wednesday to maintain its key interest rate at 0.5 per cent after cutting it twice this year to help boost the economy.The central bank noted in its monetary policy report that household spending continues to underpin the economy and is expected to continue to grow at a moderate pace.The Bank of Canada raised its estimate for growth in the third quarter to an annual pace of 2.5 per cent in its monetary policy report, but lowered its expectations for the fourth quarter to an annual pace of 1.5 per cent.Retail sales were up in four of the 11 subsectors tracked, representing 56 per cent of retail trade.Motor vehicle and parts dealers increased 2.0 per cent in August, the seventh consecutive increase. New car dealers increased 1.7 per cent, while used car dealers reported a 5.5 per cent increase.Also gaining ground were food and beverage stores, which increased sales 0.5 per, helped by a 4.6 per cent gain at beer, wine and liquor stores. Furniture and home furnishings store sales grew 3.0 per cent, following three months of relatively flat sales.Gasoline stations sales fell 0.6 per cent, while miscellaneous store retailers reported a 2.3 per cent drop.In volume terms, retail sales increased 0.7 per cent.Retail sales rose in seven provinces in August, but declined in Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Newfoundland and Labrador. read more

Footage online appears to show the Canadian Prime Minister’s eyebrow falling off at a live press conference. THE G7 SUMMIT ended with US President Donald Trump renewing the threat of global trade war as he abruptly rejected the text of a consensus statement and branded as “false” statements made by the summit’s Canadian host Justin Trudeau.“Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our US farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our US Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the US Market!” Trump tweeted.“PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that… he ‘will not be pushed around.’ Very dishonest & weak,” continued the US president.But the possibility of a trade war has been ‘overshadowed’ by an unusual theory circulating about Trudeau’s eyebrows, specifically that one of them came off during a live press conference.As the claim is picking up steam, we will examine whether it is true.The claimFootage of Trudeau’s press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron on 7 June appears to show Trudeau’s eyebrow falling off.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece’s labour ministry issued the first circular clarifying the changes to Greece’s pension system under the reforms required by Greece’s creditors on Tuesday.It breaks down the number of old-age pensions to be paid for those who retired after 1 July 2015 and the minimum retirement age according to the memorandum. The minimum age for a full and reduced pension will gradually increase.From 1 January 2022 Greeks will be able to retire at 62 years with 40 years of uninterrupted employment in order to receive a full pension or retire at 67 years of age, having completed 15 years of full employment. Exempted from the above measures are those in strenuous or unhealthy professions, as well as single or widowed mothers and fathers with offspring incapable of gainful employment.The circular also specifies that the changes do not affect those who have already established rights to a pension from social insurance funds, having fulfilled the required years of employment and age. Their right can be exercised at any time.Source: Newsbomb.gr read more

Apple assouplit ses conditions aux entreprises de presseUn porte-parole de la marque à la pomme a confirmé que les règles pour les médias développant des applications pour ses terminaux mobiles allaient être revues.Apple semble vouloir se montrer plus souple envers les médias publiant sur ses supports. Jeudi, un porte-parole de la marque a indiqué à l’agence Dow Jones Newswires, relayé par L’Expansion, que l’entreprise allait cesser d’exiger des éditeurs de journaux, magazines ou sites d’information que le prix de leur abonnement soit inférieur ou égal sur l’iPhone, l’iPad ou l’iPod Touch à ce qu’il est sur d’autres terminaux mobiles. Ces entreprises médiatiques se plaignaient justement de ce système, leur marge étant considérablement réduites à cause des 30% du chiffre d’affaires sur l’App Store prélevés par la firme de Steve Jobs. Par ailleurs, le porte-parole a également confirmé qu’Apple a autorisé ces entreprises à proposer des contenus payants sans passer obligatoirement par l’App Store.

L’élevage de crevettes laisse une énorme empreinte carboneSelon des scientifiques réunis samedi à la réunion annuelle de l’Association américaine pour la promotion de la science (AAAS), à Vancouver, l’élevage de crevette serait une pratique très polluante en matière d’émission de CO2. Un sachet de 450 grammes de crevettes surgelées représenterait une tonne de CO2. C’est l’une des conclusions auxquelles est parvenu le biologiste J. Boone Kauffman, qui mène actuellement des recherches en Indonésie pour l’Université de l’État d’Oregon. Malgré leur petite taille, les crevettes auraient ainsi une empreinte carbone loin d’être négligeable.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ? Comme l’explique J. Boone Kauffman, 50 à 60% des élevages de crevettes seraient implantés en bord de mer dans les pays asiatiques, souvent dans des secteurs où les mangroves ont été rasées. Or, “l’empreinte carbone de crevettes produites sur ce type de terrain est environ dix fois plus importante que la quantité équivalente de bœuf produite en zone de forêt tropicale”, selon le biologiste. A cela s’ajoutent de plus les émissions de gaz à effet de serre provenant de l’élevage, de la nourriture, du conditionnement et de l’expédition des marchandises. En outre, l’élevage est pratiqué de façon peu efficace, souligne le chercheur. Les structures ne produisent qu’un kilo de crevettes sur 13,4 mètres carrés de mangrove. Au lieu de les entretenir sur le long terme, les bassins sont souvent abandonnés par les propriétaires au bout de quelques années alors même qu’il faut 35 à 40 ans au terrain pour se régénérer. Enfin, ce sont des parcelles de forêts entières qui sont sacrifiées alors que la mangrove assure la biodiversité marine et protège les côtes des tempêtes et des tsunamis.

Now, police will try to know the details of the cheques from the concerned bank for the sake of investigation. However, Aditi is stating that Pratul used to pressurise her for money. To fulfill her former husband’s demands, she had to take loan from a jewelry shop against some gold ornaments of hers, which is still not confirmed by the Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedinvestigating officers. As Aditi has kept changing her statements, the sleuths are not believing her before confirming the facts. Primarily, Aditi had claimed that the murder occurred in heat of the moment. But later, it came out that Pratul’s murder was pre-planned. After murdering Pratul, Aditi changed into the dress she brought with her. Later, she disposed of her garments in a canal but by mistake she left her handkerchief at Pratul’s place. In the interrogation, Aditi also admitted to have disposed of several documents of Pratul in the same canal to hide the chit fund connection and details of money. On Wednesday, Pratul’s elder sister Chandana Chakraborty showed up and claimed Pratul was forced to discontinue his relationship with them by Aditi. As a result, they were not aware of what Pratul was upto. He was deliberately murdered on December 20 inside his rented house at Khardah. A food delivery person, who used to deliver food to Pratul everyday, smelled a rat as his repeated knocks on his door yielded no response. However, upon entering, they saw Pratul lying on the bed with a torn garment wrapped around his neck. A detailed probe is on. read more
Points per game17.723.6 Rushing yards per game89.3176.6 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo CARDINALS VS 49ERS Tight end Vernon Davis, quite simply, is a mismatch for everyone. At 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds with excellent speed, Davis can really break a defense down. He’s caught 23 passes for 340 yards and four touchdowns this season, though he was held without a catch last week against Seattle, which ended a streak of games-with-a-reception at 58.Helping Davis in the passing game are receivers Michael Crabtree (34 receptions, 368 yards, 1 TD), Mario Manningham (24 receptions, 258 yards, 1 TD), Randy Moss (12 receptions, 188 yards, 1 TD) and Kyle Williams (nine receptions, 124 yards, 1 TD). Gore also gets in on the act in the receiving game. One other wrinkle the 49ers have unveiled is quarterback Colin Kaepernick as part of a “Wildcat” look. More adept at running than passing, Kaepernick has scored twice this season and is averaging 8.5 yards per carry.

However, Aldon Smith (5.5 sacks) and Ahmad Brooks (3.0 sacks) can wreak some havoc, and it would be unwise to sleep on Patrick Willis, even though he has not recorded a sack this season.When the 49ers have the ball: The 49ers gained a reputation last season for being a smashmouth type of football team. They’d run the ball down your throats and only pass when necessary. Not much has changed, really.The offense is still centered around running back Frank Gore, who has run for 601 yards and four touchdowns this season. His average of 5.8 yards per carry is the best mark of his career. He has not topped the 100-yard mark against the Cardinals since 2009, though, so the visitors may have to take a different approach Monday night.That would, in turn, put the ball in quarterback Alex Smith’s hands. The former number one pick is completing nearly 67 percent of his passes and is averaging 7.5 yards per attempt on the year. He’s thrown nine touchdowns against just five interceptions. However, he’s averaging just a shade under 190 yards per game, as the 49ers would very much prefer to limit his attempts. What’s funny about that is the team actually has some excellent weapons in the receiving game. Rushing yards per game against120.998.9 Top Stories Bad things usually happen.We kid. Sort of.The Cardinals have had their issues with San Francisco’s defense, and will likely try to establish the run again with LaRod Stephens-Howling. ‘Hyphen’ had a career day last week against the Minnesota Vikings, rushing for 104 yards and a touchdown. He also caught four passes for 45 yards, and presents a dynamic option out of the backfield for Arizona. After (and maybe before) Stephens-Howling, Arizona’s best offensive weapon is receiver Larry Fitzgerald. The Cardinals have been unable to consistently get him the ball, though the Niners do not exactly have stud corners to throw his way. Carlos Rogers (20 tackles, 0 interceptions) and Tarell Brown (27 tackles, 0 interceptions) have the size, but if Cardinals QB John Skelton has enough time he should be able to find Fitz down the field. Besides Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts (29 receptions, 389 yards, 5 TD) has emerged as a consistent threat, and tight end Rob Housler has come on strong the last three games, tallying 10 receptions for 111 yards. He has yet to reach the end zone, but he has been getting open and may be key for the Cardinals if they want to move the ball Monday night.

You get out into the country and meet people in little towns and you talk to them.”Much like a touring musician, Burns preached the gospel of country music along the route. He was interviewed by local media outlets, showed clips from the film and soaked up the local music history at places like Sun Studio in Memphis and the Birthplace of Country Music in Bristol, Virginia. The 8-part, 16-hour long film will air Sept. 15-18 and Sept. 22-25.As the bus chugged along Interstate 40, Secor brought out a fiddle once owned by Roy Acuff for an impromptu performance of “Wabash Cannonball” with one of the film’s apprentice editors, Rebecca Branson Jones, on banjo.Burns wrapped up the bus trip at the so-called Mother Church of Country Music, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, on Wednesday with a concert featuring many of the film’s featured artists including Rosanne Cash, Dierks Bentley, Rodney Crowell, Rhiannon Giddens, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, Dwight Yoakam and more. Burns hosted the show, which chronicled the evolution from hillbilly music to one of the nation’s most popular genres that spans radio, TV and film.Burns and his production company, Florentine Films, are known for chronicling wide-ranging topics like the Civil War, baseball and the National Parks. “Many of our stories help illuminate things that are essential to understanding who Americans are,” said Duncan, who also wrote a companion book for the film. “And nothing does that better than country music.”They conducted over 100 interviews with artists like Dolly Parton, Kris Kristofferson, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire, Jack White, Elvis Costello and many more. Twenty of the film’s interview subjects have since died, including Merle Haggard, Ralph Stanley, Little Jimmy Dickens and more. All their recorded interviews will be donated to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.Their team looked through 100,000 photographs and 700 hours of archival footage and there are 600 music cues in the film. Legacy Records will also release a comprehensive music set to accompany the film’s airing.“This is one of the most complicated films we’ve ever had to wrestle because we knew we couldn’t tell every story. We’re not an encyclopedia,” Burns said.The film starts with the earliest recordings of country music in Bristol by producer Ralph Peer, who saw the commercial viability of artists like Jimmie Rodgers with his songs like “In the Jailhouse Now” and the first family of country music, the Carter Family. From there, each chapter features larger-than-life personalities, including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Parton, Kristofferson and ending with the era of Garth Brooks.“We knew we were going to deal with these large, compelling personalities, people who brought themselves up out of poverty, people of enormous creative gifts,” Burns said.The film also shows how country music has reflected the social, economic and cultural movements within America as the genre grew and adapted, from Lynn singing about reproductive rights in “The Pill,” to Charley Pride addressing racism as a black country musician and the outlaw country artists in the ’70s responding to the counter-culture movement.Secor, who also appears in the film, said that he trusted Burns to critically analyze the genre as a whole and not put it on a pedestal.“I’m so glad that Ken and Dayton are doing this, because I don’t really trust country music to tell its own story,” said Secor, who appears in the film as one of the musical experts.“Country music has always been in this commodification bit… Were they trying to create a genre of music or were they trying to capture the voice and champion the voice of America’s hardest working people? I really think it was a business plan that as an afterthought or a sidetrack was able to create this opportunity for Americans.”___Online: https://www.pbs.org/show/country-music___Follow Kristin M.
