Twenty-five years ago publisher Ritu Menon cofounded Kali for Women, India’s first feminist publishing press, with Urvashi Butalia. They wanted “a forum that gave women a voice”. Currently, Menon heads Women’s Unlimited, an associate of Kali that discovers and publishes women writers from all over South Asia. “Women’s writing has greater visibility today. Even though a bias against women remains, within the literary circle things have definitely changed,” says Menon. Her tryst with literature began well before her days as a literature student at Miranda House. Keeping true to her cause, Menon is now co-authoring (with Kalpana Kannabiran) a book on violence against women, From Mathura to Manorama.SARIKA SEHRAWAT, 28RallyistSarika Sherawat, RallyistHer first rally was the sub-Himalayan car rally in 2002 where she came ninth out of 14 contestants. Fully charged, Sarika Sehrawat drove on. In 2005, this Venkateshwara College and Fore School of Management graduate topped the women’s category in both the Maruti Suzuki Desert Rally and the gruelling Raid de Himalaya Rally. A member of the JK Tyre woman’s rally team, Sehrawat is currently preparing for her upcoming wedding as well as the Raid de Himalayan rally due in October. “I’ve won the rally for the past two years and am aiming for a hat trick,” she says. Sehrawat has come a long way from the time when she had to persuade her family to let her rally. Today, her brother acts as her manager. Operating in a male-dominated arena, she has faced her share of woman-bashing. “There have been times when people have said that it is easy for me to get sponsors because I am a woman,” she says, “but I’ve worked hard to get where I am today.” Will marriage put on the brakes? “No. My fiance is a car modifier and we intend to run a sports management company that will focus on organising and popularising motor sports in India,” she says. Thumbs up to this professional union.DR DEEPIKA DEKA, 50Professor of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, AIIMSadvertisementDr. Deepika Deka, Professor of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, AIIMSDr Deepika Deka’s warm smile can put the most anxious mother-to-be at ease. As a gynaecology and obstetrics professor at AIIMS, she has not only witnessed hundreds of births, it is her job to ensure that the babies emerge healthy and safe. Deka’s specialisation is maternal foetal medicine, which involves providing care for both mother and foetus in complicated pregnancies. From saving the life of a healthy foetus by sacrificing its abnormal twin to using very fine needles to operate inside the womb, her high-risk cases force Deka to think out of the box constantly. “I have been performing this type of surgery since 1989 and every case poses a new challenge. Being a woman and mother, I understand the stress that goes with pregnancy and being able to help women during this time fills me with pride,” says the good doctor.TRIPTA KHURANA, 57Chief Architect, DMRCTripta Khurana, Chief Architect, DMRCFor someone who had to be cajoled to study architecture, Tripta Khurana’s career has shaped up nicely. As the chief architect of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, Khurana leads a team of eight in planning metro stops, ensuring smooth passenger flow and beautifying the stations. At the moment, the team is busy finalising the layout of the 60 new stations that will come up across the NCR. Khurana got her architecture degree from the School of Planning and Architecture in 1970 and went to work at Himachal University and the CPWD. Thirst for more knowledge saw her return to SPA in 1992 for a postgrad in Urban Design. The Metro deputation in 1998 wasn’t planned but very welcome. There’s a palpable excitement in the architect’s voice as she says, “When the first section of the Metro opened and the train whistled, there was a huge sense of pleasure that our efforts had materialised.”ANJUM CHOPRA, 29CricketerAnjum Chopra, CricketerShe is the best-known face of Indian women’s cricket, a former captain and a long-standing pillar of the national side. Anjum Chopra made her debut for the Indian women’s team in 1995 and after more than a decade of international cricket behind her, wants to be best known for her stylish left-handed batting and competitive spirit. She has played in 12 Tests and 101 ODIs (incidentally, the highest notched up by an Indian woman player), including two World Cups. She was also part of the Indian team that made it to the final of the 2005 Women’s World Cup. Along with stalwarts like Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami, Chopra was a key member of the Indian team which scored its first-ever Test series win in England in 2006. For her standout performances, Chopra was one of the nominees for the ICC’s first-ever Women Player of the Year award. She became better known to vast swathes of the general public as a cricket expert on television commenting on the men’s game, her insightful views coming as a welcome change from the role normally given to women on cricket broadcasts: as clothes hangers or eye candy.SAMITA RATHOR, 35CartoonistadvertisementSamita Rathor, CartoonistOne of the few female cartoonists in the country, Samita Rathor’s powerful cartoons don’t just bring on a smile, they also force people to stop and think. An artistic bent of mind inherited from her mother Minu (who used to run theatre workshops) and a workshop by cartoonist Ponnappa led Rathor to take up freelance cartooning. Says this co-founder of the group Cartoonists Unanimous, “Animals are the pet subjects of my creations. I also like to work with social and environment issues.” Last November saw her showcasing 20 of her animal-themed works at an exhibition organised by the World Wildlife Fund in Delhi.

Spinning a new groove theory in the lounge circuit is disc jockey Alia Gulati. After moving to Delhi four years ago from London, Gulati pursued photography before switching to full-time DJing. “I knew I would indulge in music at some point in my life,” she says. Bringing an element of novelty to the game as a woman DJ, Gulati knows that she has to strive to survive in a profession that is generally considered a male monopoly. “I play music that I like listening to,” she says belting out clubby music with a house beat or world music with an electro lounge mix. Influenced by black music and funk, Gulati prefers music that “is not too produced and not with too much noise.” She played at Nashaa before it was sealed. Now she spins at the new resto-lounge Tabula Rasa, a perfect breeding ground for suave clubbers and gourmets who like their music as the main course.NALINI THAKUR, 54Conservation ArchitectNalini Thakur, Conservation ArchitectDelhi can become a world heritage city. As one of the fantastic historic cities in the world, it is on par with Rome.” Heartening. More so when the comments come from conservation architect Nalini Thakur. Ever since she moved from Madras to Delhi in 1970 to study architecture at the School of Planning and Architecture, Thakur has been working to protect and conserve heritage sites and enlighten people about their heritage. Associated with the SPA for years, first as a student and then working in various departments, Thakur has worked on several conservation projects such as INTACH’s Delhi Chapter on re-discovering Mehrauli, the concept of archaeological parks like Champaner-Pavagadh in Vadodara and Manipur’s Kangla Fort. Today, as a professor with SPA’s department of Architectural Conservation, she feels, “As long as there is heritage, there is work.” And there’s a long road ahead.TANIA SACHDEV, 20Chess PlayeradvertisementTania Sachdev, Chess PlayerTania Sachdev is a typical college student. The 20-year-old hangs out on Orkut, indulges in endless phone calls, loves to shop and goes to the movies. In between, she does her “Venky College” English literature tutorials. Yet Sachdev is not quite your girl next door. As the national chess champion and a Woman Grandmaster ranked 14th in the under-20 age group, she needs to juggle her time better than her peers. Ever since she won the Commonwealth age-group title as a seven-year-old, she has done up to 10 months of annual globetrotting. She won five age-group titles at the 1994 British Championships. At 12, she won the national title, at 16 she was Asian Junior champion. At 18, she became a WGM. Though chess swallows most of her time, she intends to do her MBA. And, yes, she does nurture ambitions to move further up the rankings ladder.WOMEN GUARDS, 25-35Vision Security GroupWomen Guards, Vision Security GroupWhen women take charge of security, you know times have changed. All over the city, in hospitals, in BPOs and even outside the homes of the rich and famous, there are young women in blue standing guard.

first_imgGurugram: In a major relief to the buyers who had invested in Ramprastha Builders to get their flats, the national consumer disputes redressal commission (NCDRC) said. Court passed judgement to refund money to 7 buyers with 12 per cent interest.Each home buyer will get Rs 1.3 crore from the builder. There are more than 350 builders who are waiting for the judgement in their favour. The homebuyers who had purchased apartments in Ramprasth’s skyys housing society did not get the possession of the houses due to repeated delay by the builder. Ultimately it led to the distressed homebuyers to take legal recourse. To make sure that the buyer’s money is protected and is not exploited by the builder a separate account will be created and will not be utilised in other projects as instructed by Department of Town and Country Planning (DTCP). It has also been stated that for drawing the money there have to be designated signatories. Also in case of fraud, the bank officials will be held equally liable. It is estimated that the Rs 10,160 crore are pending by the builders who have not been able to complete their projects on time.

Horst Köhler Satisfied with His 1st Visit to Sahara

Rabat- The UN Secretary General’s Personal Envoy for the Sahara, Horst Köhler, has said he was satisfied with his first visit to the southern provinces of the Kingdom of Morocco, noting that the visit allowed him to “deepen his understanding of the case.”“I am satisfied with this visit during which I met many people and visited different places,” said Köhler in a statement Sunday to the state-owned press Maghreb Arab News (MAP), at his departure from Hassan I Airport in Laayoune at the end of his visit. He indicated that the various meetings he held were fruitful.Köhler also welcomed the progress and development in the region, particularly in the economic and social spheres. He said the final settlement of the Western Sahara question will lead to more investment in the region and the creation of job opportunities, especially for young people. The personal envoy also emphasized his willingness to work towards a mutually agreed solution.During his visit to the southern provinces of the Kingdom, Köhler held a series of meetings with elected officials, sheikhs, notables of Sahrawi tribes, and civil society actors. The meetings were held in Laayoune, Smara and Dakhla, where members reaffirmed their commitment to the autonomy initiative as the only solution for the settlement of the Moroccan Sahara issue.These talks were also an opportunity to stress the need to put pressure on Algeria to authorize a census of inhabitants at the Tindouf camps.Köhler also inquired about development efforts in different sectors in the region, as well as projects registered as part of the southern provinces development model.The personal envoy visited the regional human rights commissions’ headquarters in Laayoune and Dakhla. He also took note of the progress made in the region with regard to the promotion human rights in the wake of reforms Morocco initiated.Köhler’s visit to Morocco is part of his second regional tour which has already taken him to Algeria and Mauritania.This regional tour of Köhler comes after the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2414 on April 27, 2018, by which it reaffirmed the pre-eminence of the Moroccan autonomy initiative.He advocated that realism and a spirit of compromise are essential to progress towards a political, realistic, pragmatic, and sustainable solution to the regional dispute over the Moroccan Sahara, by explicitly asking neighboring countries, and therefore Algeria, “to make an important contribution to the process and to engage more strongly to progress towards political solution.” read more

Mahinda claims his family being used to deflect attention

He also said that for the first time, his youngest son Rohitha was also hauled before the FCID and was asked whether he was a shareholder of ‘Supreme Sat’ which was the first Sri Lankan company to be involved in the launch of a communications satellite.“Rohitha had explained that he does not hold any shares in Supreme Sat directly or indirectly and that he was a paid employee of that company with the designation of Technical Director from July 2012 to July 2014 after which he left to concentrate on higher studies. The FCID had thereupon wanted to know whether he had helped Supreme Sat to get their licences. Rohitha had explained that by the time he joined Supreme Sat in 2012, they had already acquired their licence and that he had been introduced to Supreme Sat by a Chinese businessman who had come to South Hampton University in England to recruit new graduates for his company. The satellite that was launched in 2012 is owned by the Chinese Government and Supreme Sat which is a Sri Lankan private sector entity has leased six of the 36 transponders on the satellite with a view to providing satellite communication services to Sri Lankan customers. I have been informed that the main investor in this company is a prominent Singaporean businessman,” Rajapaksa said. This week three members of Mahinda Rajapaksa’s family – his wife Shiranthi Rajapaksa and younger sons Yoshitha and Rohitha were questioned by the CID and FCID. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says his family is being used to deflect public attention from corruption allegations raised against the Government.He says the extent of the panic in the Government is evident in the shrill announcement that special courts will be established to hear cases involving the Rajapaksas. Mahinda Rajapaksa accused the CID and the FCID of being part of the Government propaganda offensive on his family. (Colombo Gazette) “My wife was asked why the colour of a jeep that had been made available by the Red Cross to her charity SiriliyaSaviya in 2011 and used by the Presidential Secretariat had been changed. International NGOs make their vehicles available to local charities once their projects are over. My wife had told the CID that she knows nothing about the maintenance or repair of vehicles used by the Presidential Secretariat. On Wednesday, the CID obtained a statement from my son Yoshitha on the same matter. He had been asked whether he had given instructions to anyone to change the colour of this vehicle. To this Yohitha had replied in the negative and explained that the transport division of the presidential secretariat maintains the vehicles and gets them painted if necessary. He had been asked whether he had used this jeep as his back up vehicle to which he had replied that it is the PSD that assigns any available vehicle for his back up team and that he had no role in the matter,” Mahinda Rajapaksa said. read more

Outotec providing shut down services to Samarco iron ore pellet plants

first_imgOutotec has been awarded two contracts for the management and execution of shut-down services of Samarco’s four iron ore pellet plants in Brazil. These contracts, to be carried out together with Samarco’s own personnel, will last until the end of 2016. Samarco has, in total, four pellet plants at its manufacturing facility in Ubú, in the state of Espírito Santo. Outotec has designed, supplied and installed the two newest indurating furnaces at the facility, both of which incorporate the use of Outotec core technology. The fourth indurating furnace, in the largest plant of its type in the world, was successfully commissioned in March 2014 and it is currently undergoing ramp-up of production with Outotec’s operational support.Outotec has already performed several big shut-down campaigns for Samarco. Over 250 workers have been involved in the last repair, which was finalised ahead of schedule with a zero accident rate. “Samarco is a major producer of iron ore pellets and our long-term partner. The new service contracts are a further step towards a real life-cycle partnership between our companies. Acquired in 2012, Demil Manutenção Industrial in Guarapari played a significant role in this case. With the purchase, Outotec took over two on-going long-term maintenance contracts for Samarco’s pelletising and filtration areas. By combining our resources we can provide the full range of maintenance, shut-down and technical services for our customers”, comments Kimmo Kontola, head of Outotec’s Americas region.”last_img read more

The Witchers Gwent Coming Soon To Mobile

first_img There are a lot of reasons why people really really really love The Witcher games. They’re excellent open-world action RPGs. They’re chock full of beautifully written dark fantasy quests. They’re maybe the only good example of video games improving on literary source material. And of course Geralt of Rivia is daddy.But 2015’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gave players one more big reason to love the series, the addictive collectible card game Gwent. And just as Hearthstone became a huge game in its own right separate for its Warcraft roots, Gwent is also worth playing even when Geralt is nowhere to be found. Soon you’ll have even fewer excuses to not check it out since Gwent is coming to mobile.Gwent has been more than just a Witcher side mode for a few months now. The standalone game launched late last year after a beta that started back in 2017. That full launch included a full single-player campaign, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. And this week it just got a new expansion, Crimson Curse, adding 100 new cards to the game.AdChoices广告However until now Gwent has only been available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Physical card games are all about being able to play wherever you can bring a deck. And with this upcoming mobile version Gwent players will also be able to take the game on their travels. After getting the game’s online multiplayer compatible with smartphones, developer CD Projekt Red is bringing Gwent to iOS later this year. The Android version will come after that. Is it too much to hope for a Nintendo Switch version, too?For more on The Witcher check out Henry Cavill starring in the upcoming Netflix adaptation.

first_img The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans. This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  PreviousNext Case Study | March 19, 2013 | Hologic Inc. 3D Mammography Finds Cancers Missed by 2D Alone Weinstein Imaging Associates, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Related Content \”In retrospect, we might have seen the larger, 8 mm cancer on the 2D images,\” explains Marcela Bohm-Velez, M.D., FACR, \”But the second cancer was extraordinarily subtle — only 3 mm in size –and there is no way we would have seen it on the 2D images.\”Just weeks after implementing 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) in their practice, radiologists at Weinstein Imaging Associates found breast cancers in three patients that were not seen on the 2D images and the entire staff became instant believers in the new technology.  In one patient, the 3D images identified two cancers. “In retrospect, we might have seen the larger, 8 mm cancer on the 2D images,” explains Marcela Böhm-Vélez, M.D., F.A.C.R., President of Weinstein Imaging. “But the second cancer was extraordinarily subtle — only 3 mm in size — and there is no way we would have seen it on the 2D images.” In two other patients, the first cancers were visible on the 2D images, but the 3D images showed second, smaller cancers that were not seen on 2D.Weinstein Imaging Associates is a premier breast imaging center in the Pittsburgh area with three offices providing a full suite of women’s imaging services, including mammography, breast MRI and stereotactic and ultrasound-guided biopsies. “If we see something suspicious on a mammogram, we work it up the same day, often doing additional imaging, ultrasound or a biopsy, if needed,” explains radiologist and Vice President Michelle R. Straka, M.D. “We don’t want to make patients come back for multiple visits or suffer through the anxiety of waiting and wondering whether they have breast cancer.”Böhm-Vélez followed the development of 3D mammography closely and knew she wanted the technology for her patients when it became available. As soon as it was approved, Weinstein Imaging added a Hologic Selenia Dimensions breast tomosynthesis system to one of its three offices in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, area. “3D mammography supports our commitment to provide patients with the latest, most innovative technology for breast cancer detection,” states Böhm-Vélez. “It allows us to detect cancers earlier and reduce the need for additional imaging.”Performance in Dense Breasts Reduces Need for UltrasoundWeinstein Imaging has found 3D mammography to be particularly effective for women with dense breast tissue, providing a considerable advantage to patients and the radiologists interpreting the images. According to Böhm-Vélez, “The sensitivity of imaging is low when dense breast tissue is involved, making it difficult to identify abnormalities. 3D mammography separates the breast tissue allowing us not only to see the abnormality better, but also to determine whether it is a mass, or just overlapping tissue.” Straka adds, “For some patients with dense breast tissue, the images uncover a previously undetectable nodule or mass.”Böhm-Vélez continues, “Fifty percent of women have dense breasts and it can be quite a challenge to find small cancers in these mammograms. 3D mammography increases our confidence that there is not a small tumor hiding between the breast tissues. Our objective has always been to detect early stage cancers since it has been shown that breast cancer is a treatable disease.”Fewer False Positives, Fewer Unnecessary TestsAnother key benefit of mammography is the ability to reduce false positives. After screening over 900 patients using the Hologic system, Weinstein Imaging has seen a substantial reduction in the need for additional views and ultrasounds in patients where overlapping tissue was the question. “3D mammography lets us scroll through all the breast tissue in 1 mm slices, which takes away tissue overlap and the false positives generated from tissue overlap,” states Straka.Prior to adopting 3D mammography, each time Weinstein Imaging identified a new breast cancer, they routinely performed an ultrasound, because when new breast cancers are detected, a second cancer will be present in approximately 10 percent of patients. “Now, the 3D images help us identify the second cancer,” says Straka.More Patients Choose 3DWeinstein Imaging offers 3D mammography to every patient, screening and diagnostic, and, in the few months since they began, more than 30 percent of women have opted to have the 3D exam. “We provide patients with the innovative technology and accurate interpretation they would find in leading hospitals, but in the environment of a private practice,” explains Straka. “I think 3D mammography is bringing new patients to our practice.” In fact, as a result of the practice’s early educational efforts, many referring physicians are now coming to Weinstein Imaging for their own mammograms.“Our mission is to provide high-quality, innovative imaging and personalized patient care,” concludes Böhm-Vélez. “3D mammography is beneficial to my patients and that is what I am always looking for.”Case study supplied by Hologic Inc.The views and opinions expressed herein are those of Marcela Böhm-Vélez, M.D., F.A.C.R., and her colleagues at Weinstein Imaging and are not necessarily those of Hologic.This information is intended for medical professionals in the U.S. and other markets and is not intended as a product solicitation or promotion where such activities are prohibited.

Nigeria island prison offers nations dark history

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Razor wire and security cameras sat on a 3-meter fence that surrounded what appeared to be dormitories for the site. The main entrance to that area had been padlocked. Someone also left the bones of a small animal on the gate _ a black magic warning to stay away.Locals from nearby villages said the gang members there had rioted some months ago and escaped. They later came back to free other gang members and destroy more of the property, the locals said.Lateef Aderemi Ibirogba, the Lagos state commissioner for information and strategy, did not respond to questions from the AP about the facility.That secret prisons can exist _ and an apparently violent riot can go unreported _ show the ability of Nigeria’s government to keep its citizens unaware. The AP has reported that the Nigerian government now is opening a secret detention center for members of the radical Islamist sect known as Boko Haram, which has been blamed for killing more than 520 people this year alone.Meanwhile, alleged members of the sect arrested in recent months and accused of killing a British and Italian hostage in Sokoto and the Dec. 25 bombing of a Catholic church outside the capital Abuja that killed at least 44 people have yet to appear in a public court hearing. It remains unclear where they are being held. As Nigeria plans to open another classified facility to hold and interrogate members of a radical Islamist sect, the Ita Oko Island prison’s failed state shows the dangers posed by operating secret prisons and stands as a haunting reminder of past abuses of power that seem quickly forgotten.“We’re in the same situation as far as I am concerned as we were in 20 or 30 years ago, but the scenarios and the narrative are different,” said Olisa Agbakoba, a lawyer whose civil rights group helped expose the prison. “We have a rapacious political party in power determined to do everything to retain power and the struggle for power is so intense now that I would not put it past the ruling party to conceal anything to keep it power, including abuses of human rights.”The prison island sits about 100 kilometers (60 miles) outside of Lagos, a rural area where villagers still make a living fishing along the long white sand beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. The 10 square-kilometer (4 square-mile) island is just inland in the lagoon, a wide expanse of water only lightly traveled by locals.In 1978, then-military ruler Olusegun Obasanjo, who would become the country’s elected president, opened the prison he later described as a work farm. But it wasn’t until military ruler Muhammadu Buhari, now a perennial presidential candidate, that the prison became a massive holding cell for political prisoners, Agbakoba said. Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy Sponsored Stories Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Associated PressITA OKO ISLAND, Nigeria (AP) – The prison, cut out of the dense jungle that engulfs this island outside Lagos, never officially existed in records, though critics of Nigeria’s military rulers were locked up here decades ago in harsh conditions.Ita Oko Island, accessible only by boat and helicopter, allowed Nigeria’s military governments to hold opponents far from public scrutiny in the swamps of Lekki Lagoon. A newspaper expose in 1988 forced officials to close the prison, though local authorities later reopened it for what appears to be a failed $1 million effort to rehabilitate the gang members who dominate Lagos’ streets.center_img ___Associated Press writer Lekan Oyekanmi contributed to this report.___Jon Gambrell can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jongambrellap. New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Under a Buhari decree, anyone deemed by the military government to be a security risk could be imprisoned. Though such sentences were to last only a few months, many saw themselves detained indefinitely in Nigeria’s mismanaged prisons.Those deemed to be a major risk politically found themselves taken to Ita Oko by helicopter, where they worked on the farm and had no contact with the outside world, Agbakoba said. Even today, as the country has become a democracy with the guise of free information laws, it remains unclear how many inmates died on the prison island.“It was abused by prison authorities,” Agbakoba said. “If you misbehave, they said we’ll send you as punishment to” the island.In 1988, the wife of one inmate who discovered her husband had been sent there slipped a note to Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka. Soyinka was on the board of Agbakoba’s Civil Liberties Organization, which later traveled to the island with a journalist from The Guardian newspaper who published a story exposing the prison. Authorities quickly closed the prison.In recent years, Lagos state government said it invested about $1 million to rehabilitate the island into a training center for gang members, known locally as “area boys.” But a recent trip to the island by Associated Press journalists found some of the buildings in ruins after what looked like an attack. Fire destroyed some areas, with television sets and other equipment broken on the ground. State government files littered the floor, though a wall clock continued to run on a battery _ suggesting whatever happened occurred recently. 0 Comments   Share   Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Top holiday drink recipeslast_img read more

More than 100 suspects face Thai human trafficking charges

first_imgBANGKOK (AP) — Thailand’s state prosecutors recommended charges against more than 100 people, including a Thai army general, in a multinational human trafficking scandal that came to light after dozens of bodies were discovered in the country’s south earlier this year, a spokesman said Friday.Ninety-one Thais, nine Myanmar nationals and four Bangladeshis face 16 charges, including human trafficking, partaking in a transnational crime network, and assisting or bringing in aliens into the kingdom illegally, Office of the Attorney General spokesman Wanchai Roujanavong told reporters. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall The 15 state officials, including Lt. Gen. Manas Kongpaen, four policemen, a powerful provincial mayor and local politicians, will also face charges of negligence of their duty, according to the spokesman.Human rights groups have long accused Thai authorities of collusion in the trafficking industry, but officials have routinely denied the claims.Wanchai said charges have not been presses against other 15 suspects as recommended by the police, but additional investigations have been ordered.__This story has been corrected to show the number of bodies found were 36, not 33.Copyright © The Associated Press.

There were networks that brought them (the migrants) from overseas into the country systematically,” he said. “There were a lot of damages. Bodies were found. Senior officials were accused, as well as influential figures. The Office of the Attorney General, therefore, treats it as a very important case.”He said provincial prosecutors have pressed charges against 72 arrested suspects and were waiting to proceed with 32 others who remained at large.The sweeping investigation, in which 15 Thai state officials were implicated, came after 36 bodies, believed to be migrants from Myanmar and Bangladesh, were exhumed from various abandoned jungle camps near the Thai-Malaysian border in May.The discovery has intensified international pressure on Thailand to crack down on smugglers. More than 50 people were arrested in a month, including local politicians, government officials, police, and a senior-ranking army officer who once oversaw human trafficking issues in the country’s south. About 50 police officers in the southern provinces were removed from their posts and investigated for possible involvement in trafficking syndicates. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Sponsored Stories last_img read more

MPs call for successful lifeguard pilot scheme to be made law

first_imgMPs are calling for the national beach safety plan, Salamis, which was launched last summer, to be enacted into law.Speaking at the House interior committee on Monday, MPs discussed the government’s failure to form a legislative framework to safeguard lifeguards, though noted that a bill is expected to be tabled before the House before the summer.In statements after the meeting, Disy MP Kyriakos Hadjiyiannis and Akel MP Evanthia Savva, affirmed the success of the Salamis scheme that was piloted last year, and called for its enactment into law.The €3m scheme was unveiled by the interior ministry in May last year, and clearly defined jurisdictions, duties and responsibilities, lifeguard working hours and coordination. Included in the scheme are 85 organised beaches.The scheme sought to address the most pronounced weaknesses of the beach safety system, as it stood prior to the summer of 2018, such as the absence of a comprehensive plan that covered public beaches, a plethora of laws and cabinet decisions, and fragmentation of authority including concession of powers to various committees that issued orders and decisions without coordination.According to Hadjiyiannis, local authorities and parties involved were satisfied with last year’s pilot scheme and have urged for it to be expanded to include more beaches, where lifeguards currently fall under the jurisdiction of local authorities.The number of lifeguards across the island have increased from 154 to 260, Hadjiyiannis said, calling for the bill to be tabled before the House by summer.The economy of Cyprus depends on tourism and the millions of beach visitors, Savva said, adding that their safety was a factor that must be considered.Affirming her support for the Salamis scheme to be enacted into law, Savva said that the scheme requires further provisions in terms of the education of lifeguards. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
