Senior Congress leader Raj Kumar Chauhan joins BJP

first_imgNEW DELHI: Delhi Congress unit Chief Sheila Dikshit’s blue-eyed boy and senior Congress leader Raj Kumar Chauhan quit the party to join the BJP on Saturday, a day before the national capital votes in the parliamentary election.Chauhan was upset with the Congress after he was denied ticket from the North West Delhi Lok Sabha seat. Delhi Congress working president Rajesh Lilothia has been fielded by the party from the seat. The former four-time MLA and minister in the Sheila Dikshit government joined the BJP in the presence of its Delhi unit chief Manoj Tiwari and Union minister Vijay Goel. Chauhan said he believed in the policies of Prime Minister Natendra Modi and would work to strengthen bonds of his Khatik community with the BJP. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesOn this occasion, Manoj Tiwari said that Raj Kumar Chauhan has suffered a lot in the Congress Party which completely exposes the real face of Congress. It has been the policy of the Congress Party that whoever opposes should be knocked out. He said that in place of apologizing for the 1984 Anti Sikh Riots, Congress is adding insulting to the injury of Sikhs. There is a long list of Congress leaders who are suffocating due to the unfair treatment by the top leadership. Meanwhile,Loksabha Candidate of Ambedkar National Congress Party from North East Delhi Sunil Vishwakarma gave his support to Tiwari and appeals to make him victorious. Devraha and Outer Delhi District President Manoj Shokeen were present on this occasion. Tiwari said the decision of Chauhan to quit the Congress “exposed” the party’s policy.last_img read more

Saskatoon Liberals cheer Trudeau one day after blackface scandal breaks

Liam Richards / Saskatoon StarPhoenix Justin Trudeau faced just one question about the blackface scandal engulfing his re-election campaign during a hastily-arranged town hall meeting in Saskatoon, the day after it emerged that he has worn skin-darkening makeup on at least three occasions.Challenged to round the number of times he has worn blackface “to the nearest five,” Trudeau again declined to provide a specific figure and instead said he did not want to make light of the situation as far too many people face discrimination every day.“What I did was inexcusable and wrong,” the Liberal leader told the friendly crowd at the Delta Bessborough event, which was originally planned as a campaign rally with local candidates before the format was changed late Thursday afternoon.“And it hurt a lot of people who consider me an ally and that is wrong — I am deeply, deeply sorry,” Trudeau added, echoing the apologies he gave to reporters in Halifax on Wednesday and in Winnipeg earlier in the day. Liam Richards / Saskatoon StarPhoenix Seemingly dissatisfied, the young man who asked the question again challenged the Liberal leader to provide a figure — which he refused to do in Winnipeg. It was the one moment of tension in an otherwise upbeat event amid a major scandal.It was not clear until Thursday morning that Trudeau would even speak at the Saskatoon event, scheduled one day after Time magazine first reported that he donned brownface makeup as part of an Aladdin costume at an Arabian Nights-themed dinner in 2001.That disclosure, which tarnished his reputation as a champion of diversity and inclusion, was followed by Trudeau’s admission that he wore blackface in high school and Global News reported on a video of him wearing blackface in the early 1990s.The scandal did not appear to have shaken many of the roughly 500 people who showed up to hear Trudeau speak, one of whom told the crowd there was no need for Trudeau to apologize for the incidents, the most recent of which happened when he was 29.“Please, when we have this debate, let’s not go back digging up bones. (It’s about) what we do now in the present,” the man said before Trudeau thanked him for the sentiment but said political leaders should not hurt anyone and the apology was necessary.Others seemed to agree, and showed it by cheering Trudeau. Donovan Horvey described himself as a Liberal supporter whose voting decision is made. He said the painted skin controversy won’t change it.“I really personally don’t look that down upon it,” Horvey said. Trudeau was flanked at the event by multiple Saskatchewan Liberal candidates, many of whom face uphill electoral battles in a province that pollsters suggest will overwhelmingly go Conservative when Canadians vote on Oct. 21.Many of those candidates expressed support for Trudeau earlier in the day, after he delivered what one called a “very extensive apology” during a conference call Thursday morning. Others, like Cook-Searson, referred comment back to the party.Speaking to reporters in Regina, Regina–Wascana MP Ralph Goodale said while those who saw the photographs would not feel “anything but sadness and regret,” he nevertheless expects “very broad and very deep” support for the party leader.“He’s been very clear. There’s no obfuscation or no excuse — (he) totally assumed the responsibility that is necessary. And now dealing with repairing,” Goodale said.— With files from Arthur White-Crummey and the National Postamacpherson@postmedia.comtwitter.com/macphersonaRelated Liberal leader Justin Trudeau speaks at a town hall in in Saskatoon, SK on Thursday, September 19, 2019.

Jurell Parris, who was waiting in line for the event behind Horvey, said as a black man he found Trudeau’s actions offensive and disappointing, but noted that he will cast his ballot — which is still undecided — for a party with policies rather than a person.David Snider was among a small group of protesters outside the downtown hotel displaying an “I Love Canadian Oil and Gas” banner. Asked why he came to protest Trudeau, Snider said Western Canada’s oil and gas sector is “losing jobs.” Liam Richards / Saskatoon StarPhoenix Liberal leader Justin Trudeau takes selfies with people following a town hall in in Saskatoon, SK on Thursday, September 19, 2019. Inside the town hall, which required registration from people interested in the campaign rally it was scheduled to be, Trudeau fielded mostly softball questions, including one that included his campaign slogan “choose forward.”The Liberal leader was also queried on Indigenous issues by Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations Vice Chief David Pratt and Saskatoon Tribal Council Chief Mark Arcand. Pratt said he accepted Trudeau’s apology for the blackface incidents.Trudeau was introduced at the town hall by Tammy Cook-Searson, the Liberal candidate for Desnethé–Missinippi–Churchill River, who touted Trudeau’s record on Indigenous issues including lifting numerous drinking water advisories and building homes on reserves.Asked about the environment and climate change, Trudeau took a shot at Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe for spending taxpayers’ money to fight the carbon tax — one of several moments throughout the night that received big cheers from the crowd.

Canadian 3D printing work looks to the past and future

Canadian 3D printing work looks to the past and future TORONTO – Three-dimensional printers have already begun addressing present-day demands around the world by churning out everything from food to firearms, but Canada’s contributions seem geared toward different times.Canadian researchers in medicine and paleontology are hard at work pioneering projects intended to either make life easier in the future or shed light on the past.Innovations emerging from Canadian hospitals and university labs have potential to ease the pain of severe burns and joint replacements, while experiments scheduled to begin this year in a Canadian museum will deepen understanding of a poorly understood dinosaur that lived and moved in water.The common thread between these divergent projects is a piece of technology that has already made international headlines for its versatility.Three-dimensional printers, which use chemical compounds in place of ink to reproduce 3D models of computer-generated files, have been put to work in fields ranging from architecture to archiving.The U.S.-based Smithsonian institution has begun an effort to catalogue its vast collection through 3D printing with a view to making its exhibits accessible to a broader audience. A British company has developed a 3D-printed material resembling marble and already produces enough annual output to construct 12 two-storey buildings.Other enterprising individuals have managed to produce guns, clocks, clothing and even chocolate using devices that work in the home.Canadian 3D-printing pioneers may not have attracted as much attention to date, but their work promises to capture public attention in the years to come.A team of researchers led by staff at Toronto’s Mount Sinai hospital have developed a technique for recreating replacement joints using a patient’s own tissues. The process hinges, however, upon a bone replacement created by a 3D printer.Dr. Rita Kandel, chief of the hospital’s Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, said a joint is comprised of two parts – bone and cartilage. Present-day joint replacements rely on metal or plastic prosthetic parts to take the place of the damaged bone, most of which wear out over time and cause more pain for the patient.Kandel and a team of researchers have devised a way to print a bone replacement using a calcium phosphate compound that has many of the same properties as the human skeleton.That bone is then used as a natural scaffolding for replacement cartilage, which is regenerated from the patient’s stem cells.The 3D-printed part is both porous and biodegradable, Kandel said, adding it will dissolve over time as the patient’s natural bone regrows.“The bone reattaches to the cartilage that was there, and you completely reconstruct a normal joint using the patient’s own cells,” Kandel said. “So there’s no metals or plastic and no typical way of failure that’s found in these prostheses.”Kandel and her team have successfully created new knee joints for animals and hope to apply the procedure to humans in the next few years.These next few years may also usher in another quantum leap in medical care thanks to 3D printing. A team of researchers led by graduate students at the University of Toronto have developed a printer that produces a tissue closely resembling human skin.Stem cells or other genetic matter are combined with calcium chloride to produce a soft tissue that can be adjusted to different thicknesses and textures.Dr. Marc Jeschke, a burn surgeon at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital and close collaborator on the project, said the technology’s primary application would be to treat patients suffering from severe burns.The procedure would reduce hospital wait times, reduce the need for painful skin grafts and revolutionize modern-day approaches to burn treatment, he said.Testing is still in the early stages, with large-scale use still expected to be at least a decade away. Still, Jeschke is brimming with optimism about the printer’s potential impact in the field.“If we are successful in this entire picture, we will definitely change the way we care for burn patients throughout the world,” he said. “The bigger picture of this technology is dramatic, it’s tremendous, it’s incredible.”Not all 3D-printing efforts are focused on future medical innovations. Researchers in Alberta are hoping the technology can help them unlock some historical secrets as well by shedding light on one of the world’s lesser-understood dinosaurs.Plesiosaurs did not roam the land like their more famous counterparts, but spent most of their days in water.Donald Henderson, curator of dinosaurs at Alberta’s Royal Tyrrell Museum, said little is known to date about how the species was able to navigate its aquatic habitats, adding debate centres on whether the animals relied on a back fin to stay afloat.Henderson, in partnership with the University of Calgary, plans to print various plesiosaur models, some of which feature the fin in question. The models will then be put through various tests in a flume tank, and Henderson hopes the results will advance the world’s knowledge of a little-understood species.Jessica Theodor, a paleontologist at the University of Calgary who is collaborating on the project, said more in-depth knowledge of the plesiosaur has present-day implications as well for the scientific community.“They provide another example of different shapes possible for marine tetrapods, so understanding how they could swim is important in understanding different ways that vertebrates can move in aquatic environments,” she said. by Michelle McQuigge, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 22, 2013 5:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Butler Simmons spark 76ers past Grizzlies 10395

PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Butler continued his run as Philadelphia’s stretch-run shooter, scoring 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter to lead the 76ers to a 103-95 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night.Butler hit winning shots against Charlotte and Brooklyn in eight days to quickly earn a reputation as Philly’s newest sharp shooter. Against a Memphis team trying to steal one on the road, Butler hit big buckets in the waning moments.Butler didn’t need the final-minute theatrics to win this one. But he proved his worth in the fourth.Ben Simmons, who had 19 points and 12 rebounds, ran up from behind on MarShon Brooks and poked the ball free for a steal. That led to a pair of free throws for Butler that made it 95-89. Butler buried a turnaround jumper for a 97-89 lead that sealed the win.Butler and Simmons have started wearing white headbands — yes, they are a headband of brothers — as a symbol of their commitment to defence. Butler has tried to take Simmons under his wing and focus more on a defensive toughness. But they’ve been pretty good on offence since Butler’s arrival last month from Minnesota. Butler fed Simmons for a cutting layup in the first quarter and Simmons fed Butler on an alley-oop for an early spark.With the rest of the NBA on a run-and-shoot style of soaring scores, the Grizzlies are grinding out wins in a methodical manner. They kept within striking distance of the Sixers and pulled to 84-81 in the fourth and Marc Gasol hit a 3 to make it 92-84.The Sixers had thumped New York by 16 and Washington by 25 as they rolled to the second-most wins in the NBA. They are 13-1 at home and 8-2 since the acquired Butler in a trade with Minnesota last month.JJ Redick continued his late-career resurgence with 24 points for the Sixers and Joel Embiid had 15 points and 14 rebounds.Mike Conley scored 21 points and Jaren Jackson Jr. had 17 for the Grizzlies.TIP-INSGrizzlies: Had no offensive rebounds out of 17 total in the first half. … The Grizzlies, coming off a 131-125 double-overtime win at Brooklyn on Friday, used their defence to hold the Sixers to just 26 points in the first quarter. The Sixers averaged a league-best 30.3 points in the first quarter this season.76ers: Played without starting F Wilson Chandler (thigh). Chandler was not expected to miss another game. Mike Muscala got the start and scored eight points. … Director M. Night Shyamalan was at the game. … Embiid has scored in double figures in all 25 games.UP NEXTGrizzlies: Host the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.76ers: At Toronto on Wednesday night.__More AP NBA:https://www.apnews.com/NBAandhttps://www.twitter.com/AP_SportsDan Gelston, The Associated Press read more

Getting more gas from lignite brown coal and low rank coal resources

first_imgRegal Resources has signed a Joint Venture Agreement with Enhanced Biogenic Methane. EBM has been granted an exclusive Australian licence to patented biogenetic methane enhancement (BME) technology from the Western Research Institute (WRI) of Wyoming, a company at the forefront of this technology globally. BME speeds up the natural biogenic process that produces methane from coal. Biogenic methane accounts for in excess of 20% of the total methane reserves on earth. Major sources include coal seam gas in the Surat Basin in Queensland and Powder River Basin in Wyoming, USA.Regal, which holds Exploration Licences 4507 and 4510, has granted EBM access to its Oak Park site (within EL 4507), west-northwest of Melbourne, Australia, to conduct a demonstration project (subject to regulatory approvals). EBM will invest A$300,000 to fund a single well technology demonstration at the Oak Park site that is expected, subject to regulatory approval, to commence during the first quarter of 2010.The Joint Venture provides EBM access to 1,000 Mt of brown coal / lignite within the tenement area without causing disruption to the Underground Coal to Liquids (UCTL) pilot test that Regal is undertaking or potential applications of UCTL within the tenements. Any methane produced from the use of the BME technology will be shared between EBM and Regal on a 50/50 basis.BME works by artificially stimulating the micro-organisms called methanogens that break down the coal structure and produce methane as a by product. BME technology works best on lignite (brown coal), low rank black coals and oil shale. This is because of their high volatiles and hydrogen content, which if all converted to methane would yield gas quantities 10 times that of traditional coal seam gas.As there are currently little economic applications for these asset classes and due to their abundance, the BME technology has the potential to be applied on many projects and many locations. Application of BME is expected to be via the same drilling techniques used in the coal seam gas industry or via re-entering wells that are not economic or that have not been successful in previous coal seam methane testing.One of the advantages of BME over coal seam gas is that the groundwater does not need to be extracted. Also, as only a small amount of the coal is converted to methane, there is no surface subsidence as can happen with underground mining or underground coal gasification. BME has been demonstrated to produce methane real time in both bench scale trials (lignite and black coal) and field tests (black coal).Typical hydrogen content of low ranked coals and oil shales is 5% by weight. If all this hydrogen could be converted to methane, gas content of coal would be 10 times that of traditional coal seam gas.last_img read more

Glencore Technology introduces first accurate online calculator for flotation cell installation

first_imgGlencore Technology have introduced the first accurate online calculator for estimating the required cell installation for a given flotation circuit. The result shows what Jameson Cell installation is needed to deliver any given target concentrate. “The online calculator, available for free, takes key parameters like commodity and cell duty to decide what calculations are needed. Then it’s remarkably thorough as it executes them.”It takes specific feed and concentrate grades, recovery targets and percentages of solids and it builds each stage through roughers, cleaners and recleaners. The result is a powerful indicator of what the recommendation could contribute to a flotation circuit and to the downstream flowsheet. It reveals what type of Jameson Cells would deliver the outcome and how many bubble-generating downcomers would be required. While it can’t serve as a specification without human problem-solving, it can help direct information-gathering, planning and show what’s possible.Virginia Lawson, Jameson Cell’s Technology Manager, says, “This is the first time an accurate online estimation tool has been delivered to the market, and it’s incredibly insightful. I think many companies have been coy to share this depth of information, but there’s no loss provided the indicator is meaningful.” The online calculator can be found at the Jameson Cell website: http://www.jamesoncell.com/en/downloads/Pages/JamesonCellOnlineCalculator.aspxlast_img read more

since anti-superstition crusader and rationalist Narendra Dabholkar was shot dead during a morning walk on 20 August 2013 the Central Bureau of Investigation appears to have failed to find any conclusive evidence or the whereabouts of the accused in the case The same appears to be true in the case of Communist leader Govind Pansare who was shot at in Kolhapur in 2015 as well with the Special Investigation Team of Maharashtra Police’s Criminal Investigations Department appointed to investigate the murder conceding before the Bombay High Court that there was little hope now of achieving anything substantial from any further field probe File image of Govind Pansare and Narendra Dabholkar News18/PTI "Field probe including raids at possible hiding places will not lead to anything anymore Our only hope is scientific probe and evidence from call detail records forensics etc" said senior advocate Ashok Mundargi counsel for the state government and the SIT Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh representing the CBI probing Dabholkar’s killing echoed the same view The lawyers view irked the bench of Justices SC Dharamadhikari and Bharati Dangre which rapped the two investigation agencies for their failure to apprehend the culprits in the two cases The bench was hearing pleas by the kin of Dabholkar and Pansare The two justices had sought a court-monitored probe into the killings "How do we then take the case to its logical conclusion" the bench asked "Can we allow for the case to reach a dead-end when similar crimes are on the rise" it asked The bench said while it was not critical so far of the ongoing probes by the two agencies it could not allow them to leave everything to the mere hope that the absconding accused persons in the two cases tired of hiding or fearing threat to their lives would turn themselves in one day "Why don’t you take steps to completely strangulate the organisational backing that the accused persons must be receiving" the bench asked It also directed the agencies to seek the help of expert interrogators in the case The bench warned that if the agencies failed to make any progress by the next date of hearing it would be constrained to summon the senior officials concerned Amid a nation-wide outrage over the Kathua rape-cum-murder and the Unnao rape cases the bench observed that India’s image today has taken a beating with a growing perception abroad that it’s a country of crimes and rapes and the liberal and secular people are not safe here It also said that the rest of the world was now hesitant to engage with India over educational or cultural issues "It is unfortunate that today the image of the country is such that those living abroad feel only crimes and rapes happen in India "Anywhere we go (outside of India) we have to answer a barrage of questions People are under the impression that liberal open-minded and secular people cannot be safe in India and that they are bound to be attacked The image of India is suffering due to the acts of a few people" the bench said "No international body wants to be a part of our educational and cultural projects Investors show interest at first but pull back later on We are very sorry to see this Do we (India) want to live in a cocoon" the bench asked "No institution in the country including the judiciary is spared from this" it said The high court had last year observed that the killings of Dabholkar and Pansare were "well planned" and the perpetrators had an organisational backup With inputs from PTI Tokyo: Malaysia’s newly-elected prime minister called on Monday for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to be "renegotiated" and urged protection for small countries in international trade Malaysia along with 10 other countries pushed ahead with the TPP in March despite Donald Trump having yanked the United States out of the huge multilateral trade deal But Mahathir Mohamad told a gathering in Tokyo he was "not very keen" on the agreement "We need TPP renegotiated" he said in a speech to the "Future of Asia" forum "We have to recognise just as there are infant industries there are infant nations nations which are just beginning to grow" he added File image of Mahathir Mohamad Reuters "They need to have some privileges some protection for themselves because they are not in a position to compete with the great trading nations the great manufacturing nations of the world" Around 11 countries circling the Pacific signed a slimmed-down version of the TPP in March opting to proceed with the deal after it was left for dead when Trump pulled out to pursue his "America First" agenda The US president has since sparked fears of a trade war by levying steep tariffs and denouncing unfair trading practices even rejecting a joint communique at the G7 summit over trade disagreement Mahathir on his first foreign trip since a surprise election victory in May said countries like Malaysia needed a helping hand in international trade "The countries with little capacity to compete must be given due consideration It is like playing golf The weakest people get the highest handicaps" he said "In that way competition would be much fairer" The signatories to the TPP represent 135 percent of the global economy and a market of 500 million people The deal was pushed by former US president Barack Obama’s administration in part as a way to counter growing Chinese commercial power It cuts tariffs and requires members to comply with a high level of regulatory standards in areas like labour law and
