Frustrated by the lack of a decision from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leadership on the Indapur Assembly seat, senior Congress leader Harshavardhan Patil has called for a meeting of his followers on Wednesday, lending credence to long-standing speculation that he may join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) soon.Mr. Patil, a four-time MLA from his stronghold Indapur and a former State minister, is one of the few big leaders left in the Congress, which has seen defections to the saffron coalition of late. According to sources, he is expected to announce his decision post-noon at a ‘Jansankalp’ (public resolution) meeting of his followers in Indapur. It remains to be seen whether Mr. Patil announces his decision to contest as an Independent or ally himself with the BJP.After being elected MLA for four consecutive terms beginning in 1995, Mr. Patil had suffered a humiliating defeat at hands of the NCP’s Dattatrey Bharne in the 2014 Assembly elections when the Congress and the NCP had contested separately. Mr. Patil is seeking to reassert himself and contest from Indapur in the Assembly election with the NCP’s help as a ‘return favour’ to the help he had given NCP MP Supriya Sule to ensure her victory from the Baramati Lok Sabha seat.The Indapur Assembly segment forms part of the Baramati Lok Sabha constituency, the stronghold of NCP chief Sharad Pawar. Mr. Patil wields considerable influence over the Indapur and Bhor Assembly segments.The rivalry between the Pawar clan and Mr. Patil’s family was aggravated when Mr. Patil lost the 2014 Assembly elections. However, with the BJP ascendant in Maharashtra and the Congress and Mr. Pawar’s political fortunes on the wane, Mr. Pawar had sought to pacify Mr. Patil in a bid to ensure that he campaigned for the re-election of Ms. Sule, his daughter and cousin of senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar.Just before the Lok Sabha elections, Ajit Pawar had conferred with Mr. Patil at his residence in Pune to ensure that he campaigned for Ms. Sule. According to Mr. Patil’s supporters, the Congressman’s campaign for Ms. Sule helped her secure critical votes that ultimately ensured the NCP MP’s re-election for the third time.However, the NCP leadership including Mr. Pawar, has not shown any inclination to let go of the Indapur Assembly seat for Mr. Patil. Observers say, given the rapid rate of defections in the NCP, the party is unwilling to ‘unseat’ Mr. Bharne and give preference to Mr. Patil. As a result, a visibly disappointed Mr. Patil has been holding meetings of his followers in the past few weeks. “You must decide whether or not I ought to contest the polls. If yes, you must be ready for the electoral fight,” said Mr. Patil, at a meeting, while hitting out at the NCP’s ‘lack of gratitude’.In response, NCP State president Jayant Patil, during the party’s ‘Shiv Swarajya Yatra’ in Indapur has said that decisions on whether to leave a particular seat or not could not be made through the media. “If Mr. Pawar does not take a call on the Indapur Assembly seat soon and if Mr. Patil exits, it will be a situation similar to one that forced the Vikhe-Patils to leave the Congress,” said a city-based analyst.The BJP, on its part, has been trying hard to woo Mr. Patil, with State unit president Chandrakant Patil making overtures to the Congressman before the Lok Sabha elections.

It is now likely the rescue will not go ahead today.AMSA understands that current sea ice conditions prevent the barge from Aurora Australis from reaching the Chinese vessel Xue Long (Snow Dragon) and a rescue may not be possible today.The Xue Long’s helicopter is unable to land on the Aurora Australis due to load rating restrictions. It is not safe to land the helicopter next to Aurora Australis at this time.The preferred and safest option at this stage is to ultimately transfer the passengers onto Aurora Australis.All passengers on board the MV Akademik Shokalskiy are currently safe and well. The preferred option is to wait for conditions that will allow the rescue to be completed in a single operation to reduce unnecessary risk.Alternative measures to complete the rescue operation are now being investigated by AMSA and the ships involved.This rescue is a complex operation involving a number of steps. Operations in Antarctica are all weather and ice dependent and conditions can change rapidly. The priority is to ensure the safety of all involved.RCC Australia continues to be in regular contact with all vessels involved and continues to monitor the situation. The vessels involved are also in close contact with each other via VHF radio.

The Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, in association with the Asian Heritage Foundation, is organising an exhibition of ingeniously woven historic Indian handmade textile forms as a prelude to World Handmade Textile Biennales. The exhibition was inaugurated by Smriti Irani, Minister of Textiles, and Ajay Tamta, Minister of State for Textiles, at the renovated Handloom Haat in Janpath on March 5, in the presence of Padmabhushan Rajeev Sethi, Chairman, Asian Heritage Foundation. The showcase of handmade textiles at the event unfolds an evocative visual language of design, bridging different periods of Indian textile history. Each displayed piece tells a unique story. The five textile forms with deep roots in India and a strong international footprint include Khadi, Brocade, Ikat, Chintz, and Embroider Also Read – An income drop can harm brainWith an aim to deconstruct matrix of threads and fibres, warp and weft associated with the forms, and also to face the changing sensibilities and preferences of the global markets – the proposed Biennales will be organised in the nerve-centers of their practice – Ahmedabad, Varanasi, Hyderabad, Jaipur, and Srinagar respectively. The Biennales’ team has even initiated an unprecedented exercise to map the five principal handmade textile skills on the international level. The data which has been collated so far is laid out graphically on five world political maps presented at the event. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardBeing the curtain raiser for the World Handmade Textile Biennales, the exhibition is being held at those grounds of the country from where it re-imagined its creative identity after Independence, through a group of visionaries who laid the foundations of National Handicrafts and Handlooms Museum, and All India Handloom Board. Celebrating the living heritage of the county, the ongoing exhibition is a homage to such visionaries, with a hopes to recapture the essence of handmade production across the country through these five textile traditions.
By Safaa KasraouiRabat – The Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has announced a new flight from Marrakech to Hamburg, which will be officially launched on October. The new connection will operate twice per week destination, on Wednesdays and Sundays. The announcement comes after Ryanair’s decision made earlier this week to launch 13 new European flights from Marrakech, Nador, Fes, Rabat and Tangier.The cities that will benefit from Ryanair’s newest airlines services from Marrakech airport are Budapest (Hungary), Cologne (Germany), Santander (Spain), Nimes (France), and Perpignan (France). Those flights will be accessible two times per week except for Perpignan (three flights a week).From Fes, all flights to and from Bremen, Munich and Seville will be available twice a week.Nador’s airport will adopt flights to Dusseldorf twice a week. Finally, a flight to Eindhoven will be offered from Rabat and Tangier twice a week.The Irish company also announced additional flights, between Agadir and Brussels and Marrakech and Valencia starting winter 2017.
Cybersecurity experts are worried that the increased frequency of data breaches is becoming normalized by the public, reducing the pressure on organizations that handle private data to do better.“It’s clear that this happens to many major companies, even those who invest heavily in security. I don’t want to say that it’s inevitable, because it’s not, but there is an aspect of frequency to this, that is really startling,” said Ira Goldstein, the chief operating officer at Herjavec Group, in an interview with IT World Canada. “I think there’s kind of a societal and philosophical angle to that where people are becoming quite desensitized to it.”Mark Nunnikhoven, vice-president of cloud research at Trend Micro, said that such a desensitization is one of his biggest fears and the worst-case result of cybersecurity breaches like the one at Capital One Financial Corp., which exposed the private information of around 100 million people in the U.S., and 6 million Canadians.Desensitization among the public could also reduce their motivation to lobby for stronger laws and regulations.“That is what I’m scared of. You can’t go a week without opening one of the major national papers and seeing a breach somewhere. It is very easy to become desensitized to, especially in an area as complex as technology. That is an issue so vast and complex that it’s easier just to say ‘that’s just how it is’,” said Nunnikhoven in an interview with IT World Canada. “There’s a lot of things that organizations can do to strengthen their security to reduce the number of data breaches that there are. But without that demand from the people and that big stick from regulators, it’s unlikely they’re going to undertake that of their own accord.”While Canada does lag behind regulatory leaders like Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the federal government did recently implement a new Digital Privacy Act (DPA) that amended the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) to include regulations that dictate how organizations must report such breaches, although many in the channel community said these new regulations were too vague to have a true impact.But these updated policies, according to Goldstein and Nunnikhoven, don’t include enough financial penalties.Referencing the maximum penalty under the GDPR of 6 per cent of global revenue, Nunnikhoven said that “money talks” and called for additional penalties to be levied against offending Canadian organizations.“That really highlights the biggest weakness in Canadian data privacy regulation. In general, we’ve done a decent job about it. Finally, the nuts and bolts are put in place,” said Nunnikhoven. “The challenge there is that the fines aren’t nearly big enough. We need financial incentives to align security interests of citizens with those of the business. And I think that’s the glaring part.”And with a much lower maximum threshold for fines in Canada than in Europe, Goldstein worries that organizations, especially those who rely on the collection and leveraging of people’s data, will not take them seriously.“With fines up to $100,000, it can be seen as a cost of doing business as opposed to a real penalty that drives behavior.”In its statement, Capital One described the security gap that led to the breach as a “configuration vulnerability”. The charge sheet suggests the alleged hacker used a “firewall misconfiguration” to access the data held by an unnamed cloud computing company. Judging from the email sent to Capital One by a white hat hacker, who refers to an S3, it would suggest this was on Amazon AWS.
A driver and two passengers suffered minor gunshot wounds when their truck was fired on yesterday while travelling in South Darfur, according to information relayed from the UN Mission in the Sudan (UNMIS). The injuries were not life-threatening and they were being treated in El Geneina hospital. Over the weekend, another convoy of three UN trucks en route to Zalingei from Nyala, was ambushed by a group of armed men but it was not immediately clear what injuries were sustained in the attack.Meanwhile, in West Darfur, UNMIS said it has received reports that about 500 Arab militia members, riding horses and camels and supported with Land Cruisers mounted with machine-guns, carried out attacks in several areas there. The African Union Mission in Sudan will investigate reports, the spokesman’s office said.
Canadian court rules in Ecuadorian legal battle involving oil giant Chevron Both sides found positives in a Canadian court ruling issued Friday in a David and Goliath legal battle between oil giant Chevron and a group of Ecuadorian villagers.The villagers are using the Canadian courts to try to collect on a US$9.5-billion Ecuadorian court judgement for environmental damage.Chevron issued a news release Friday saying Ontario’s superior court has ruled the oil company’s Canadian arm isn’t a party to the Ecuadorian court decision.Chevron said the Ontario judgement concluded that Chevron Canada is a separate entity and says it’s confident any jurisdiction that examines the facts of the case will find the Ecuadorian judgment unenforceable.A spokeswoman for the villagers issued a counter statement saying the ruling gave the green light for the villagers to continue legal action against Chevron Corp. in a bid to seize billions in assets to enforce the court judgement. The villagers are now seeking roughly US$12-billion, factoring in interest.Karen Hinton’s statement minimized the setback with regards to Chevron’s Canadian subsidiary, predicting it would be “swiftly reversed” by an appeal court.“Ultimately, we are confident that Canada’s courts will hold Chevron fully accountable for its outrageous and criminal conduct in Ecuador,” said Hinton, who is based in the U.S.Some 30,000 villagers first turned to Ecuador’s justice system in 1993 alleging that Texaco, which is now owned by Chevron, dumped billions of litres of toxic oil-drilling waters into hundreds of open-air pits.Activists have contended the affected area sees, among other problems, the highest rates of childhood leukemia in the country — 130 per cent more frequent cancer deaths than elsewhere, and 150 per cent higher rates of miscarriages.Chevron has no assets in the South American country, so the villagers have turned to courts in several other countries in an effort to have the judgment enforced.Alan Lenczner argued in court previously that the notion that Chevron Corp. is separate from its Canadian arm was nonsense, saying Chevron Canada is a “cash cow” that sends billions to its controlling parent.Chevron has also derided the Ecuador court judgement contending it was the product of fraud, witness tampering and obstruction of justice. It said a U.S. court has already prohibited the Ecuadorian judgment from being enforced in the United States.Hinton’s statement countered Chevron’s fraud claims were debunked by Ecuador’s courts. A Chevron logo appears at a gas station in Miami on July 25, 2011. Both sides found positives in a Canadian court ruling issued Friday in a David and Goliath legal battle between oil giant Chevron and a group of Ecuadorian villagers.The villagers are using the Canadian courts to try to collect on a US$9.5-billion Ecuadorian court judgement for environmental damage.

Stay on target Buy This Comic: CRIMINYBuy This Comic: ARCHIE 1941 #1 Wednesday is New Comic Book Day, which means that it is also the best day of the week. A lot of great comics came out today, but this column is meant to focus on the best of the best, the must have books that should be in everyone’s stack for the week. This week, that book is Black Widow #8 by writers Chris Samnee and Mark Waid, with art also by Samnee, and colors by Matt Wilson.Black Widow #8DARK ROOM FIELD TRIP! Students of the DARK ROOM — the successor of the Red Room — are making their way into the world. One young assassin has her sights set on a VERY high profile target. There’s no shortage of men prepared to stop her, and BLACK WIDOW will have to fight them all to save her.Ever since the title debuted in March of this year as part of the Marvel NOW! initiative, it has been one of the best comics on the shelf. Taking everything that a casual reader would know about the character from the movies, and running with it, the series feels like a perfect set up for a Black Widow solo movie. Forcing Natasha to go on the run from S.H.I.E.L.D. as she is haunted by her past, it strikes a perfect balance of having a lot of fun with how smart and tough the character can be while also really making her feel vulnerable and human. The Red Room, the organization that trained Natasha, and others, from a young age to be Russian assassins has resurfaced as The Dark Room. Fighting to stop this new generation of girls from being brainwashed, as well as preventing their assassination attempts, makes for really compelling drama.Natasha is a tough character to get right, which even the Marvel movies have a hard time of doing. Her characterization isn’t consistent, aside from the stone cold spy. Samnee and Waid go out of their way to show not only what kind of a person Natasha is, but also the amount of work that she goes into hiding it from everyone around her. Always two steps ahead, even when getting the snot kicked out of her, she’ll do whatever it takes to get her mission accomplished. A morally gray character that still manages to be compelling, she stands out as a force to be reckoned with amongst the Marvel Universe.As if the writing wasn’t good enough, Samnee and Wilson are consistently making Black Widow one of the best-looking comics out. This entire creative team had an extensive and critically acclaimed run on Daredevil, which ended last year, and that is still one of my favorite series of all time. Having perfected their craft, they moved onto Black Widow, which takes full advantage of Samnee’s art. Having Samnee be the co-writer for this series seems to add to just how well the pages flow with the eye, as characters are always well established and move in a movie-like way across the page. The action sequences are always top-notch, as Samnee frames everything really well as to not lose track of the characters in the setting, always letting you know where everyone is and what they are doing.As close to perfect as a comic book can be, Black Widow is the best example of the marriage of a script and art. Issue 8 is another excellent entry into the series, and if you are not reading it already, you should be. The issues eight is available in print and online at Comixology.com.Other great new releases for 11/30/16: Monstress #8 from Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda, as well as the second volume of Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan, Cliff Chiang, and Matt Wilson.
Explore further Dylan fans: Jonas Frisén, Konstantinos Meletis, Jon Lundberg, Kenneth Chien and Eddie Weitzberg. Credit: Gustav Mårtensson Journal information: PLoS ONE , Nature Medicine TRMM satellite sees Tropical Storm Dylan make landfall in Queensland Jon Lundberg and Eddie Weitzberg, both professors at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at the Karolinska Institute, were involved in the 1997 article; Lundberg laid out the rules of the bet as “The one who has written most articles with Dylan quotes, before going into retirement wins a lunch at the Solna restaurant Jöns Jacob.”Jonas Frisén and a colleague stepped up to the plate in their 2010 article published in Cell Cycle: “Eph receptors tangled up in two” was inspired by Dylan’s “Tangled up in Blue.” One year later, Lundberg and Weitzberg wrote a paper, “Dietary nitrate – a slow train coming” for The Journal of Physiology. As if they could stop right there. In a paraphrase of Dylan, they inserted in the paper’s conclusion, “We know something is happening, but we don’t know what it is – Do we, Dr Jones?” Lundberg said they were referring to a British colleague with the same surname.The Dylan-inspired scientists have drawn attention to the articles via email. One of the competitors, Joan Frisen, said it was “important that the quote is linked to the scientific content, that it reinforces the message and raises the quality of the article as such, not the reverse.” What could draw researchers exploring cells and inflammation to Bob Dylan? Opinions reflect high esteem for Dylan among the band of scientists, opinions that include Dylan being worthy of a Nobel prize for literature to recognition of Dylan as a modern Shakespeare. A practical parallel was drawn by Konstantinos Meletis, research assistant at the Department of Neuroscience. “A musician who merely continues down the same highway for 30 years is not one who many want to listen to,” he said in KI News. “Good music is innovative, like Bob Dylan’s. And the same thing applies to good research. A researcher must also try to find new and different paths.” News of their bet may also help to bolster the work of scientists who, in exploring the activities of the brain, wish to explore less simplistic notions about one side of the brain working toward art appreciation and the other toward algebra appreciation. A study on PLOS ONE last year from a team at University of Utah and University of Wisconsin, “An Evaluation of the Left-Brain vs. Right-Brain Hypothesis with Resting State Functional Connectivity Magnetic Resonance Imaging,” said that “our analyses suggest that an individual brain is not ‘left-brained’ or ‘right-brained’ as a global property, but that asymmetric lateralization is a property of individual nodes or local subnetworks, and that different aspects of the left-dominant network and right-dominant network may show relatively greater or lesser lateralization within an individual.” , Cell Cycle (Phys.org) —A 17-year old bet among scientists at the Karolinska Institute has been a wager that whoever wrote the most articles with Dylan quotes before they retired would get a free lunch. Results included papers such as Nitric oxide and inflammation: the answer is blowing in the wind,” published in 1997 in Nature Medicine. Then there was another cluster of members preparing an article about whether blood cells change and become nerve cells. They entered the title, “Blood on the tracks: a simple twist of fate.” The first two nitric oxide authors repeated their effort with another paper that had “The times they are a-changin’ in the title. At the same time, they emailed the “blood on tracks” authors and announced an internal competition. Lisa Reimegård chronicled their multi-year wager in KI News, the publication of the Karolinska Institute.

It’s been a rough year for the Knicks and their hastily assembled knock-off Big 3. One of the biggest disappointments has been power forward Joakim Noah, who looks like a shell of his former all-star self after several injury plagued seasons.Last night, the Knicks beat the similarly struggling Pacers, but Noah’s memorable moment from the evening was one he’d probably like to forget.When Noah, a career 70% free throw shooter, stepped to the line for a pair, what resulted was one of the ugliest free throws you’ll ever see by a player not named Shaq. Noah pushed the shot about three feet wide left of the basket, and grimaced at the nasty air ball. Good god, that’s an ugly free-throw.Here’s the video, have a look. Or, maybe, look away:
