Indian mens team to tour Belgium ahead of Olympic qualifier vs Russia


first_imgBengaluru: Indian men’s hockey captain Manpreet Singh on Tuesday said that his team will tour Belgium to prepare for the Olympic qualifiers match against Russia. In a favourable draw, the Indian men’s team was on Monday pitted against lower-ranked Russia in the final round of the Tokyo Olympics qualifiers. The men’s team will play back-to-matches against Russia in Bhubaneswar on November 1 and 2 to make it to the Tokyo Games. “First, we will play with Belgium and there is the (Olympic) qualifying round match later. We should not underestimate Russia as well because they have a very good defence. They also want to qualify for the Olympics,” Manpreet said here. Eight-time Olympic champions India are ranked five in the world while the Russians are placed 22 in the FIH world rankings. India had mauled Russia 10-0 during the FIH Series Final in Bhubaneswar earlier this year. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhThe Indian women’s team, on the other hand, has been drawn against United States of America, and the two sides will take on each other on the same dates as men’s matches in Bhubaneswar. Speaking about the preparations, the women’s team captain Rani Rampal said, “Our team is very well prepared for that match. We are focusing on how to perform well. Our focus is not on the US team but on us, how better we perform.” Rampal said the fitness of the team was beyond anybody’s imagination, which will help them face any team in the world. “We have been playing together for a quite long time and now we have to implement the coordination in the match as well,” she added.last_img read more


Video games affect girls more than boys


first_imgDear parents, please take note. When it comes to video gaming, girls in the 6-12 age group are at a heightened risk of developing less social competence than boys, warn researchers. The researchers found that 10-year-old girls who played games frequently had less social competence than 12-year-olds than girls who played less frequently. The study by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), NTNU Social Research, the University of California, Davis, and St. Olav’s Hospital in Norway, however, found that playing video games is generally not harmful to boys’ social development. “Our study may mitigate some concerns about the adverse effects of gaming on children’s development,” said Beate Wold Hygen, post-doctoral fellow at the NTNU and NTNU Social Research. The popularity of interactive video games has sparked concern among parents, educators and policymakers about how the games affect children and adolescents. The new study, conducted in Norway, looked at how playing video games affects the social skills of 6- to 12-year-olds. It found that playing the games affected youth differently by age and gender. For the study, the researchers studied 873 Norwegian youth from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds every two years for six years when the children were aged 6 to 12. The findings suggested that girls who spent more time playing video games at age 10 developed weaker social skills two years later than girls who spent less time playing games.last_img read more


Business Highlights


___Once-counterculture 420 marijuana holiday goes mainstreamLOS ANGELES (AP) — Businesses inside and outside the multibillion-dollar marijuana industry are embracing the once-counterculture four-twenty holiday. Potheads have for decades celebrated their love of cannabis on April 20. But the annual celebration that was all about getting stoned is now so mainstream that Corporate America is starting to embrace it. Lyft and Carl’s Jr. are among the businesses using April 20 to roll out marketing and social media messaging aimed at cannabis consumers.___US home construction slips 0.3% in MarchWASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. home construction slipped 0.3% in March, as housing starts are running below last year’s pace in a sign that inventory could be a challenge for would-be buyers. The Commerce Department says that housing starts last month were a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.14 million.___Ancestry pulls slavery-era ad after backlashNEW YORK (AP) — Ancestry.com is apologizing for its ad that showed a white man and black woman discussing running off together to the North during the Civil War era. The ad drew widespread criticism online for whitewashing slavery. The DNA testing company removed the ad from TV and online in response to the backlash.___Toyota, SoftBank fund, Denso invest $1 billion in UberTOKYO (AP) — Japan’s top automaker Toyota, auto parts maker Denso and internet company SoftBank’s investment fund are investing $1 billion in car-sharing Uber’s technology unit. The companies say Toyota Motor Corp. and Denso Corp. will together invest $667 million and SoftBank Corp.’s Vision Fund will contribute $333 million in Uber ATG, which will try to develop and commercialize automated ridesharing services. Toyota has been stepping up such efforts.___How many cherries in frozen pie? FDA may soon drop rulesNEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump may soon be able to claim a sweet victory for his deregulation push: Officials are preparing to get rid of decades-old rules for labeling frozen cherry pies. The regulations say the products must be at least 25% cherries by weight. The obscure rule is seen as an easy target because there are no rules for other pies. Getting rid of the cherry pie rules is likely to be far less controversial than the debate over what can be called milk.___Global stocks modestly higher in quiet holiday tradingTOKYO (AP) — Global stock indexes are mostly moderately higher in quiet holiday trading on Good Friday as some markets are closed. Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225, South Korea’s Kospi and the Shanghai Composite are higher. Trading was closed in France, Germany and the U.K. Other markets also remain closed for the holiday, including in the U.S., Hong Kong and Australia.___Celebration of Japan’s new era big opportunity for businessTOKYO (AP) — Japan is getting ready for its biggest celebration in years with the advent of the Reiwa era of soon-to-be emperor Naruhito. That means big opportunities for businesses hoping consumers will splash out on long holidays and memorabilia. Many Japanese will get their longest ever “Golden Week” holidays, 10 days, and some are taking advantage of deep discounts. The expected downsides: monster traffic jams and struggles to keep store shelves stocked with so many people getting time off.___Report: FTC considering oversight of Facebook’s ZuckerbergWASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Post says discussions between Facebook and Federal Trade Commission officials about the company’s data-handing lapses have touched on instituting some sort of oversight for company CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The Facebook founder also controls a majority of Facebook’s voting stock.___Panel to review approval of Boeing 737 Max flight controlsDETROIT (AP) — A global team of experts next week will begin reviewing how the Boeing 737 Max’s flight control system was approved by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA says experts from nine international civil aviation authorities have confirmed participation in a technical review promised by the agency. The Boeing jetliner has been grounded around the world since mid-March after two crashes killed 346 people.___China downplays political impact of global development pushBEIJING (AP) — China is downplaying the political implications of its global development campaign known as the Belt and Road initiative, saying that it aims to boost multilateralism amid protectionist trends in the U.S. and elsewhere. Foreign Minister Wang Yi said a meeting to promote the initiative next week in Beijing would draw leaders from 37 countries, underscoring heavy demand for Chinese investment.___Alibaba head’s remarks spark debate over China working hoursBEIJING (AP) — Remarks by the head of Chinese online business giant Alibaba that young people should work from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. six days a week if they want financial success have prompted a debate over work-life balance. Jack Ma is one of China’s richest men and his comments brought both condemnation and support as China’s economic growth has slowed. Grueling hours are credited with fueling China’s economic rise but also a deteriorating quality of life.___Fiat Chrysler recalls over 300K cars due to rollaway riskDETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 300,000 vehicles in North America because a transmission problem could cause them to roll away unexpectedly. The recall covers Dodge Dart compact cars from the 2013 through 2016 with six-speed automatic transmissions. The company says a bushing can fail, causing the shifter cable to come loose from the transmission. That means when a driver shifts to park or another gear, the gear may not change and the car could roll away.The Associated Press read more

UPDATE Horsemeat containing harmful drug entered food chain in France


first_imgFrench firm Spanghero has been at the heart of the scandal after it allegedly passed off 750 tonnes of horsemeat as beef, with the product eventually finding its way into 4.5 million “beef” products sold across Europe.French authorities had initially suspended the company’s sanitary license, but following protests from 300-odd workers allowed the company to resume production of minced meat, sausages and ready-to-eat meals.The company was banned, however, from stocking frozen meat.LasagneItaly has found its first case of horsemeat contamination in frozen lasagne produced in the same region where the famous Italian dish hails from, the ANSA news agency reported today.The horsemeat was found in tests on six tonnes of mincemeat and 2,400 packages labelled as “lasagne bolognese” seized from a company near the city in central Italy.The report identified the company as “Primia” and said it had used meat from another company in Brescia in northern Italy and originally supplied by two other companies also based in Brescia.The tests were carried out as part of sweeping checks by police on 121 brands across the country.Swiss giant Nestle, the world’s biggest food company,  said it was withdrawing two types of pasta meal on Monday from supermarket shelves in Italy and Spain due to contamination that did not constitute a health risk.- – © AFP, 2013Read: Horsemeat labelled ‘beef’ sent to Czech Republic from Ireland>Read: Nestle pulls beef products as horsemeat scandal grows> Updated 14.45pmHORSEMEAT CONTAINING A drug potentially harmful to humans has likely entered the food chain, France said today, adding health concerns to the food scandal raging across Europe.A spokesman for the French agriculture ministry told AFP that several horse carcasses containing the drug Phenylbutazone have probably ended up being eaten by consumers.Phenylbutazone is an anti-inflammatory treatment for horses which is potentially harmful to humans and by law is supposed to be kept off of plates.Britain alerted Paris that six tainted carcasses had been exported to France in January, but the meat had already been processed by the time the warning came, the spokesman said.Although some of the meat had been recalled, the equivalent of three carcasses had “probably” made it to consumers, he said, adding that there was only a “minor” health risk.Mandatory labellingFrench President Francois Hollande said today that he would push for mandatory labelling of meat in ready-made meals.“I want there to eventually be mandatory labels on the meat contained in prepared meals,” Francois Hollande said while visiting an agricultural show in Paris.Until then, I will support… all initiatives for voluntary labelling” so that “consumers know the origin of the products they are consuming, especially meat.last_img read more

UN report blames gas attack on Syrian regime


first_imgThis file photo taken on 4 April 2017 shows an unconscious Syrian child receiving treatment at a hospital in Khan Sheikhun, a rebel-held town in the northwestern Syrian Idlib province, following a suspected toxic gas attack. AFPUnited Nations investigators on Thursday blamed a sarin gas massacre on Bashar al-Assad’s regime, as the United States renewed its warning that he has no role in Syria’s future.The expert panel’s report and tough remarks by US secretary of state Rex Tillerson overshadowed the announcement that UN-sponsored peace talks will resume next month.More than 87 people died on 4 April this year when sarin gas projectiles were fired into Khan Sheikhun, a rebel-held town in the Idlib province of northwestern Syria.Images of dead and dying victims, including young children, in the aftermath of the attack provoked global outrage and a US cruise missile strike on a regime air base.Syria and its ally Russia had suggested that a rebel weapon may have detonated on the ground but the UN panel confirmed Western intelligence reports that blamed the regime.“The panel is confident that the Syrian Arab Republic is responsible for the release of sarin at Khan Sheikhun on 4 April 2017,” the report, seen by AFP, says.The report will increase pressure on Assad’s regime just as Washington, in the wake of battlefield victories against the Islamic State group, renews calls for him to step down.Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s comments to reporters came during a visit to Geneva in which he met UN envoy Staffan de Mistura, who is trying to convene a new round of peace talks next month.The secretary said US policy has not changed, but his remarks represented tougher language from an administration that had previously said Assad’s fate is not a priority.“We do not believe there is a future for the Assad regime, the Assad family,” Tillerson said.“I think I’ve said it on a number of occasions. The reign of the Assad family is coming to an end, and the only issue is how should that be brought about.”Russia, which is running a parallel peace process with Iran and Turkey in a series of talks in the Kazakh capital Astana, reacted coolly to Tillerson’s remarks.“I think we should not pre-empt any future for anybody,” said Moscow’s UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia, who on Tuesday had vetoed a US attempt to extend the gas attack probe.British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the UN panel’s report had reached a “clear conclusion” and urged the “international community to unite to hold Assad’s regime accountable.”“I call on Russia to stop covering up for its abhorrent ally and keep its own commitment to ensure that chemical weapons are never used again,” he said.Civil warDe Mistura hopes to convene an eighth round of Syrian peace talks between Assad’s regime and an opposition coalition in Geneva from 28 November.These will be focused on drafting a new constitution and holding UN-supervised elections in a country devastated by several overlapping bloody civil conflicts.Assad’s regime has been saved by Russian and Iranian military intervention and he insists that he will not stand down in the face of what he regards as “terrorist” rebels.But Western capitals, the opposition and many of Syria’s Arab neighbors hold Assad’s forces responsible for the bulk of the 330,000 people who have died in the conflict.In addition to chemical weapons attacks against his own people, his government is accused of overseeing the large-scale torture and murder of civilian detainees.The previous US administration often said that Assad’s days were numbered, but then president Barack Obama decided not to use force to punish his chemical weapons attacks.His successor, President Donald Trump, did order one missile strike on a Syrian air base in response to a chemical attack.But US policy has otherwise focused solely on the defeat of the Islamic State jihadist group, driving it out of its last bastions in eastern Syria’s Euphrates valley.Tillerson said, however, that he hopes a way to oust Assad will “emerge” as part of de Mistura’s UN-mediated talks.‘Moment of truth’He argued that the UN Security Council resolution setting up the peace process already contains a procedure to hold elections that Washington does not think Assad can win.“The only thing that changed is when this administration came into office, we took a view that it is not a prerequisite that Assad go before that process starts, rather the mechanism by which Assad departs will likely emerge from that process,” he said.Earlier, de Mistura had told the UN Security Council that with the defeat of the Islamic State, the Syrian peace process had reached a “moment of truth.”“We need to get the parties into real negotiations,” the envoy said.Seven rounds of talks have achieved only incremental progress toward a political deal, with negotiations deadlocked over Assad’s fate.The opposition insists any settlement must provide for a transition away from Assad’s rule but, as government forces make gains, there is little likelihood of a breakthrough.last_img read more


Weird Sht Discovered With Google Maps


first_img Easily Assign Tasks With Google AssistantLGBTQ+ Video Creators Sue YouTube, Google Stay on target Information – that’s what Google’s all about. They aim to take the entire world and suck it into their computers, then serve it up as search results to us with ads attached. And we love them for it. It’s hard to imagine a world without Google Maps, especially. Their roving cars and cameras in the sky have snapped shots of pretty much every location on Earth, allowing us to commute faster and cyberstalk more efficiently.While most Google satellite shots are pretty dull, those cameras do occasionally capture some unexpected vistas. Come with us as we scan the world with our hungry eyes to discover ancient temples, modern miracles, and other totally weird stuff that Google Maps discovered.The Badlands GuardianLocation: 50° 0’38.20″ N, 110° 6’48.32″ WHuman beings are notorious egomaniacs, seeing our faces in just about everything from electrical outlets to the stars above. But we have to admit that the Badlands Guardian, a natural geomorphological formation located in southeast Alberta, is a little intense. The outcropping created by natural erosion looks an awful lot like a human head wearing an Aboriginal Canadian headdress. It was discovered in 2006 by a researcher examining random locations on Google Earth.Airplane BoneyardLocation: 32 08’59.96″ N, 110 50’09.03″ WWhere do airplanes go when they die? Why, to a massive graveyard outside of Tucson, Arizona, discovered on Google Maps and surprisingly open to the public. The Airplane Boneyard at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is the single largest aircraft dump site in the world. The region was picked for its low humidity, high altitude and hard alkaline soil, keeping the over 4,400 airplanes there in good shape to be stripped for parts or, in extreme cases, returned to action.White Desert LinesLocation: 40 45’21.07″ N, 93 74’21.18″ WWhen this strange tangle of white lines was discovered on Google Maps in the middle of China’s Gobi Desert, it immediately sparked a frenzy of discussion as to what the obviously man-made arrangement was used for. It’s too chaotic to be a landing strip, but the even lines and steady angles were too orderly to be the result of random chance. The general consensus a few years post-finding seems to be that it’s a calibration pattern for spy satellites – they compare it to an onboard image to ensure that their cameras are lined up and receiving properly.The Lake Of BloodLocation: 33 23’46.08″ N 44 29’17.03″EWhat was referred to as “Lago Vermelho” showed up on a Google Maps survey in 2007 as a lake of bloody crimson red. The explanation for a body of water that striking color in the midst of war-torn Iraq has still not been given, but some speculated that slaughterhouses had been disposing of their runoff blood into it. That’s a little unlikely from a scientific perspective, with the more reasonable theory being that chemical spillage was responsible. The red color didn’t last forever, though, and recent satellite shots show Lago Vermelho back to its normal blue-green hue.The Nevada CircleLocation: 37 40’15.73″ N, -116 86’78.08″ WYou’ve probably noticed by now that a lot of these mysterious markings and strange creations are found in the vast empty deserts of the world. That’s probably because it’s a lot easier to get away with this kind of project when there’s nobody around to ask what you’re doing. This bizarre six-pointed star enclosed in a circle can be found in the southern Nevada wastelands below Stonewall Mountain, and unlike some of the other entries on this list, we don’t have any explanation for it. Cult sacrifice spot? Possibly!Indochinese Border Scale ModelLocation: 38 26’56.52″ N, 10 5’95.17″ WIt’s pretty easy to use Google Maps to keep tabs on the borders of the Earth’s countries, but if you were to zip your camera over Yong Ning Xian, Yinchuan, Ningxia, China you might get confused. For some as yet undisclosed reason, the Chinese government has constructed a 1/20 scale model of a disputed border zone between that nation and India. Measuring 1.8 miles in length, there’s no real consensus on why this was constructed. One Australian publication floated the theory that it is used to train tank drivers, but are the tanks 1/20 of normal size as well? It’s just too weird for me.Trementina BaseLocation: 355 27’46.48″ N, -1045 57’07.96″ WThe Church of Scientology works hard to keep their inner workings shrouded in mystery, but they probably didn’t predict Google Maps would record the entire surface of the Earth and capture the bizarre markings they etched into the ground outside of their secret base in New Mexico. Trementina Base is allegedly the spot where L. Ron Hubbard’s writings and archives are preserved for eternity inside titanium capsules. The Scientology symbols – which look a lot like a nice pair of boobs, just saying – were discovered in 2005, and the Church immediately tried to suppress their release.South Sudan HoleLocation: 9 16’89.62″ N, 30 38’29.05″ WIf you’ve been following Flat Earth truthers, you know they argue that the earth isn’t a ball floating in space but rather a contact lens-shaped disc surrounded by an atmospheric bubble and a wall of ice. How else to explain anomalies like this bizarre circular portal in the jungles of South Sudan? It’s hard to imagine that a natural body of water could be so perfectly round and covered by what appears to be a floating layer of foliage, but there are no roads or other evidence of human intervention. What could it be? Maybe it’s the drain hole for the flat Earth?New Baltimore Hell TownLocation: 42 438’70.22″ N, -73 78’84.39″ WLet’s head down from the satellite and check in with Google’s busy little Street View cars, driving along to document every navigable road in the country. Sometimes those cameras run into a little trouble, and when one was working in upstate New York it seemingly opened a portal to a hell dimension. Residents of New Baltimore are as of last reports not under siege by malevolent demonic entities, and Google sent another car out to get better pictures. While it lasted, though, it was one of the weirdest things we’ve ever seen on Google Maps.A Giant Pink BunnyLocation: 44 24’46.22,” N, 7 76’88.63″ WA who to the what now? Atop a hill in the Piedmont region of Italy rests “Hase,” a 200 foot long stuffed rabbit deposited there by art collective Gelatin as a massive art project. The group spent five years knitting the damn thing and expect it to totally decompose by 2025, so the Google Maps views of the thing are just going to get creepier and creepier every year as nature reclaims it.Satan’s FaceLocation: 34 79’85.48″ N, -84 93’62.25″ WWe started this off with a hidden face and we’ll end it with one as well. In 2010, a man named Luther Blissett claimed to discover the face of Satan lurking in a Google Maps image of a freeway just outside of Dalton, Georgia. The malevolent visage disappeared when Google made their next satellite pass, but true believers never forget. It’s not the first time the face of the Devil has been spotted in natural phenomena – he’s turned up in tornado photographs and other natural disasters. I wouldn’t rank the traffic in Georgia on that level, but it’s pretty bad.last_img read more


DRI seizes exotic birds smuggled from Bangladesh


first_imgKolkata: The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) has seized exotic birds which were smuggled from Bangladesh into West Bengal, an agency statement said today. Acting on a specific input, DRI officials intercepted a vehicle at a place along Kalyani Expressway near here and found three red and blue macaws, three eclectus parrots, eight pygmy falcons and seven white ducks, it said. The birds were found badly crammed up in plastic bags kept in the boot of the car, the statement said. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights These birds were illegally brought into the country from Bangladesh through Indo-Bangla border in North 24 Parganas district, it said. The probe agency said it immediately contacted the office of the principal chief conservator of forests, West Bengal and also the director of Alipore zoo, Kolkata. The birds were handed over by the DRI to the zoo. In March this year, the agency had seized 214 Indian star tortoise in Kolkata. Less than a month back, two hollock gibbons, an endangered species under the Wild life Protection Act, 1972 and two palm civets, another endangered species, along with a variety of exotic birds, which had been smuggled into the country from Bangladesh seized by the DRI. “There is an urgent need to step up the fight against wild life crime, which has environmental, social and economic impact and a concerted effort is needed by all the law enforcement agencies in combating the same,” the agency said.last_img read more
