Kashmir Press Club to hold polls after three decades


first_imgThe journalistic fraternity in Kashmir, where 19 scribes lost their lives to unknown gunmensince 1990, will get to elect its first-ever body for the Kashmir Press Club (KPC) on July 15. As many as 252 working journalists and editors will vote for four posts of office-bearers and a seven-member executive committee. Thirty one candidates are in the fray for the July 15 polls. All the candidates wooed voters through a fierce poster, social media and video campaigns in the past one week, promising social security, exigency funds, free legal support etc.“Holding election for professional organisations is always a welcome step. One hopefully looks forward to its promised positive outcome for the profession as well as the larger public good,” said senior journalist Mohammad Syed Malik. He recalled that regular organisational elections were held prior to 1990 to choose the office-bearers of working journalists’ State unit affiliated to the Indian Federation of Working Journalists (IFWJ). “The onset of turmoil (in 1990) disrupted all. The rest is history,” said Mr. Malik.Kashmir may be a rare place in the country where setting up a press club remained a no-go area. Successive governments identified land and buildings but never handed them over to the journalists. “In the late 1990s, then Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah instructed his Chief Secretary to hand over the keys of a particular building to the media fraternity to start a press club. Later, the Chief Secretary disclosed that the keys of the building had gone missing,” said another senior journalist on condition of anonymity.The setting up of the press club, which was handed over by the previous government to the journalists in 2017, has come at a time when working journalists and editors are under tremendous pressure from many sides in Kashmir.The Kashmir Editors Guild (KEG), a body of editors of local dailies, at a recent meeting said the club “should become a symbol of unity.”Ishfaq Tantry, contesting for general secretary, said, “This election will be a first move towards starting a process of welfare for journalists and their working conditions. It should also become a hub to upscale skills of journalists.”last_img read more

Ohio State senior forward Jae’Sean Tate (1) blocks a shot in the first half of the game against Penn State on Jan. 25 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorPenn State has been the kryptonite for No. 16 Ohio State the entire season. It has accounted for two of the Buckeyes’ three total losses in conference play and is the main reason the Buckeyes did not capture the regular-season Big Ten title.After the Nittany Lions lost 76-64 to Nebraska on Sunday, they could now be in a position to face Ohio State once again. The Buckeyes are the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten tournament and will face the winner of the No. 7 Penn State and No. 10 Northwestern matchup in the third round of the bracket at 6:30 p.m. Friday in Madison Square Garden in New York City.Penn State first won 82-79 on a near-half-court, buzzer-beating shot from guard Tony Carr in Columbus on Jan. 25, and then throttled the Buckeyes 79-56 in State College, Pennsylvania, on Feb. 15.Ohio State faced Northwestern just once this season and survived a late push by the Wildcats to win 71-65 on Jan. 17. read more

Monday Update Swan Lake Fire Transitioning To Type 2 Fire


first_imgAdditional crews were added, the local Yukon Fire crew has joined the three other crews in this critical area of the fire. Saarloos: “Crews will work together today on their continued mission of protecting the community of Sterling by mopping up, securing and monitoring fireline on the southwestern edge of the fire.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Management of the Swan Lake Fire, burning in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, will transition to an incoming Type 2 Alaska incident management team. Sarah Saarloos with DOF: “Fire personnel will be transitioning the Incident Command from the Division of Forestry Kenai-Kodiak Unit in Soldotna to Sterling Elementary School this morning. Expect to see more fire personnel on the Sterling Highway while they complete this move and more presence in Sterling in future.” This move to a Type 2 team increases the capacity of each division of staffing.  More personnel assigned to this fire provides for a comprehensive strategic plan going forward and adds capacity in anticipation of the shift in weather back to drier days, according to a release from the Division of Forestry. The cloudy day on Sunday allowed firefighters on the 12,782 acre Swan Lake Fire to make good progress. The southwestern firelines nearest the community of Sterling were further strengthened and widened as crews strategically tied work with the existing pipeline right-of-way clearing. Motorists are still urged to yield to fire apparatus entering the Sterling Highway and to adhere to traffic signage staged near miles 82 and 92.

Google looks to outside experts to guide work on controversial AI issues


first_img Read Google Home Hub review Share your voice 0 Sarah Tew/CNET Chris Monroe/CNET Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) Read the AirPods review $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. $520 at HP Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Other Labor Day sales you should check out Best Buy: In addition to some pretty solid MacBook deals that have been running for about a week already, Best Buy is offering up to 40% off major appliances like washers, dryers and stoves. There are also gift cards available with the purchase of select appliances. See it at Best BuyDell: Through Aug. 28, Dell is offering an extra 12% off various laptops, desktops and electronics.

Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) See at Turo Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Comments $155 at Google Express Getty Images Google on Tuesday said it’s established an external advisory council to guide its development of artificial intelligence. The Advanced Technology External Advisory Council (ATEAC) will advise the company on topics like facial recognition and fairness in machine learning. Last year in a blog post, Google CEO Sundar Pichai shared Google’s AI Principles, a series of ethical guidelines on the development and use of AI. The ATEAC is designed to “complement the internal governance structure and processes that help us implement the principles,” Kent Walker, Google’s senior vice president of global affairs, said in a post. He also discussed the council’s establishment at MIT Technology Review’s EmTech Digital conference in San Francisco.Members of the inaugural council include Alessandro Acquisti, a behavioral economist and privacy researcher; De Kai, a natural language processing researcher; and Dyan Gibbens, CEO of Trumbull, a startup that works in automation.Those members will serve on the council through 2019, and will hold four meetings beginning next month. Google plans to publish a report summarizing those conversations. “We hope this effort will inform both our own work and the broader technology sector,” Walker wrote. “In addition to consulting with the experts on ATEAC, we’ll continue to exchange ideas and gather feedback from partners and organizations around the world.” Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast.

Tags I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $999 Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. See Itlast_img read more


Two people dead dozens of homes damaged after 73 magnitude


first_imgJAKARTA: A strong earthquake in eastern Indonesia killed two people and damaged at least dozens of homes, a disaster official said Monday, as the government declared a seven-day emergency response period. The magnitude 7.3 quake on Sunday was centred 166 kilometres (103 miles) southeast of Ternate, the capital of North Maluku province, at a depth of just 10 kilometres (6 miles). Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us Shallow quakes can cause more damage. National disaster agency spokesman Agus Wibowo said two women were killed by collapsing houses and more than 2,000 people have fled to temporary shelters. The quake was followed by at least 65 smaller aftershocks. The agency is still assessing the level of destruction but said two bridges and about 58 homes in one village alone, Saketa, were damaged. Also Read – Prominent Hong Kong activists targeted in wave of arrests Advertise With Us Authorities said there was no tsunami risk from the quake, but many people ran to the higher ground anyway. The TV footage showed people screaming while running out of a shopping mall in Ternate. The hardest-hit areas, Sofifi and Labuha, only can be accessed by a 10-hour boat trip from Ternate or by small plane, Wibowo said. With a population of around 1 million, North Maluku is one of Indonesia’s least populous provinces. Indonesia, home to more than 260 million people, is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions due to its location along the Pacific “Ring of Fire.” A powerful Indian Ocean quake and tsunami in 2004 killed a total of 230,000 people in a dozen countries, most of them in Indonesia.last_img read more

Full Housing Recovery Hinges on Young Adults Getting Jobs


first_imgUnemployment,Full Housing Recovery Hinges on Young Adults Getting Jobs While the housing market is showing some signs of promise, a few major indicators continue to lag, according to the latest “”Trulia Housing Barometer.””:http://trends.truliablog.com/2013/12/housing-barometer-winter-2013/ Prices and sales are working their way back to “”normal,”” while employment among young adults and housing construction remain sluggish. [IMAGE]””Trulia””:http://www.trulia.com/ tracks five market indicators as part of its re-launched Housing Barometer: home prices, home sales, delinquencies and foreclosures, construction starts, and employment among young adults ages 25 to 34. Trulia added young adult employment to its barometer because the demographic is “”a key age group for household formation and first-time homeownership””–and it is this indicator that is furthest from normal, presenting a major obstacle for the housing recovery. At 74.9 percent, the employment rate for those ages 25 to 34 is just 23 percent of the way back to its normal rate of 79.3 percent, according to Trulia. “”The housing market cannot fully recover until young adults get back to work,”” said Jed Kolko, chief economist at Trulia, in his report. New home starts are doing a little better in terms of normalization than young adult employment, but they are still lagging–just 36 percent of the way back to their normal level. From August through October, new home starts totaled 870,000, compared to a normal level of 1.5 million. The good news is that construction permits are on the rise, pointing to a future pickup in housing starts, according to Trulia. [COLUMN_BREAK]Home prices “”win the ‘most improved’ award over the past year,”” Trulia stated in its Housing Barometer report. After an ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£astounding recovery├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬Ø this year, prices are 71 percent of their way back to their normal level from their bottom during the recession, up from just 16 percent a year ago, according to Trulia. Home prices are 4 percent undervalued as of the fourth quarter of this year.Home sales have made even more improvement overall, now 79 percent back to normal, up from 51 percent last year. Trulia no longer includes distressed sales in its existing home sales measure but notes, “”While existing and pending home sales have slipped in recent months, distressed sales–foreclosures and short sales–account for much of the drop.”” Delinquencies and foreclosures stand in the middle of Trulia’s Housing Barometer at 59 percent of the way back to normal. The delinquency and foreclosure rate is 8.92 percent as of October, according to Trulia. Florida and “”several other states with long foreclosure processes,”” account for much of the nation’s foreclosure and distressed inventory. In addition to its national barometer, Trulia observes the nation’s 100 largest metro markets. Ten markets are now all the way or almost all the way back to normal, meaning prices are less than 2 percent undervalued and permits are less than 10 percent below normal. Those markets include: Austin, Dallas, and Houston, Texas; Orange County, San Francisco, and San Jose, California; Denver, Colorado; Seattle, Washington; Nashville, Tennessee; and Bethesda, Maryland. It is notable that these are not the markets with the highest price gains over the past year. “”[T]he markets with the biggest price increases in 2013 are those that suffered the biggest price declines after the housing bubble burst,”” according to Trulia, and many of these markets are still undervalued. Instead, the 10 markets that are normal or nearly normal did not suffer the worst of the housing crisis and have experienced “”relatively strong job growth”” recently, Trulia stated. in Data December 13, 2013 466 Views center_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Delinquency Home Prices Home Sales Housing Starts Investors Jobs Lenders & Servicers Service Providers Trulia 2013-12-13 Krista Franks Brock Sharelast_img read more
