first_imgKolkata: The dengue situation in North 24-Parganas’ Habra continues to be grim with the number of dengue affected victims mounting up with each passing day.According to sources in the Habra State General Hospital, more than 800 patients were admitted to the hospital with dengue or dengue-like symptoms in the past 15 days. The number goes up despite several measures taken up by the state health department and the district administration. Sources in the hospital said that three persons have already died of dengue in the Habra State General Hospital.

The number of patients admitted to the hospital has far outweighed the bed capacity of the hospital. The total bed strength of the hospital is around 131. Nearly 70 seats have been increased in the hospital on an emergency basis,” an official from the hospital said.

Dr Sankarlal Ghosh, superintendent of the Habra State General Hospital, said health department’s initiatives are not enough to check the disease unless people are aware on how to take preventive measures. People are mostly affected in Daharthuba area of Habra. More than 100 people are down with dengue.last_img read more

Environmental concerns must be addressed in Enbridge pipeline reversal plan Wynne

TORONTO — Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is promising to address environmental concerns amid protests over a west-east pipeline plan that would transport Alberta oil to foreign markets.Protests that have cropped up in the province include a blockade of an Enbridge pumping station near Hamilton in June.Eighteen people were arrested and charged in that incident when they refused to leave the station.They oppose Enbridge’s plan to reverse the flow of oil in a stretch of pipeline from Westover, Ont., — about 30 kilometres northwest of Hamilton —  to Montreal, saying the move could lead to a possible breach.Wynne says environmental concerns have to be at the centre of any talk about the movement of fuel through the province.She says the province has to work with all groups, including First Nations communities, to make sure there are protections in place.The premier says Ontario also has to work with other provinces with the understanding that they all share energy needs. read more

IndoLanka accord hailed as helping defeat Prabakaran

The 1987 agreement between India and Sri Lanka helped defeat the LTTE led by Vellupillai Prabakaran, Minister of Plantation Industries Navin Dissanayake said.Dissanayake said that when the Indo-Lanka accord was signed at the time his father, Gamini Dissanayake, was a Minister in the United National Party (UNP) Government, the Sri Lanka Freedom Party opposed it. He says if the agreement was not signed India would not have supported Sri Lanka to defeat Vellupillai Prabakaran. “After 1987 India did not oppose Sri Lanka’s moves to defeat Prabakaran,” he said. The Minister said that if India had helped Prabakaran, terrorism in Sri Lanka would have been worse that what it was. (Colombo Gazette)

Wind of hope blowing through Horn of Africa says UN chief as

Saudi Arabia facilitated the agreement, and in a message on Twitter, the Foreign Ministry said that the accord, signed in Jeddah “is a historic milestone for the peoples of Ethiopia and Eritrea, and will contribute to strengthening security and stability in the region at large”.“The signature of the peace agreement between the President of Eritrea and the Prime Minister of Ethiopia is indeed a historic event,” said the Secretary-General, speaking at a press conference following the signing in Saudi Arabia’s second-largest city, on the Red Sea coast, with Foreign Minister Adel Aljubeir.We have seen a conflict that has lasted for decades, ending, and that has a very important meaning in a world where we see, unfortunately, so many conflicts multiplying, and lasting forever – UN chief, António Guterres“We have seen a conflict that has lasted for decades, ending, and that has a very important meaning in a world where we see, unfortunately, so many conflicts multiplying, and lasting forever,” added Mr. Guterres.He expressed his “deep appreciation” for the role played by Saudi Arabia, before paying tribute “on one hand to the courage, the vision, the wisdom of the Prime Minister of Ethiopia – who has had the capacity to overcome enormous resistance from the past and open a new chapter in the history of his country – and also the way the President of Eritrea has promptly responded to his peace initiatives.”The thaw in relations between the neighbouring countries, who fought a bloody, unresolved war in the late 1990s, began in earnest in June, when Ethiopia’s newly-elected leader, Abiy Ahmed, made peace overtures to his counterpart, which have now come to fruition.Seizing on the implications for the whole region, Mr. Guterres said that the agreement meant that “there is a wind of hope blowing in the Horn of Africa. It is not only the peace between Ethiopia and Eritrea – it is the fact that tomorrow and the day after tomorrow we will have, here in Saudi Arabia, the President of Djibouti and the President of Eritrea – two countries that have also been at odds with each other.”According to news reports, Eritrea and Djibouti announced on Friday that they would also normalize diplomatic relations with each other following a falling out on the border, in 2008, which left several dead and resulted in prisoners being taken on both sides.The UN chief also noted the peace agreement between the President and his former Vice President in South Sudan, that was signed on Thursday – in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa – as another indicator of real diplomatic movement across the Horn of Africa and its borders.“I want to say that this window of hope is enormously important in a world where, unfortunately, hope has been very scarce,” added the Secretary-General. read more

Former Ohio State players AJ Hawk Mike Nugent among NFL successes

Green Bay Packers inside linebacker A.J. Hawk (50) pressures Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (5) Oct. 13 at M&T Bank Stadium. The Packers won, 19-17.Credit: Courtesy of MCTThe Ohio State football program has produced players now considered to be NFL greats, such as Bill Willis, Cris Carter and Eddie George. With the 2013 season heading into the home stretch, a new class of Buckeyes, young and experienced, is looking to succeed at football’s highest level.As of Wednesday, a total of 35 former Buckeyes currently hold NFL roster spots, including three that were taken in the 2013 NFL Draft.These players were defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, drafted 49th overall by the New York Giants, defensive end John Simon, who was drafted 129th by the Baltimore Ravens and offensive lineman Reid Fragel, who was taken by the Cincinnati Bengals 240th overall but was later signed by the Cleveland Browns.Arguably the most noteworthy performance from the first three weeks of the season came from former quarterback Terrelle Pryor, currently the starter for the Oakland Raiders.During week one, Pryor threw for 217 yards and rushed for 112 more, both game highs. That came in a losing effort, as the Raiders were defeated by the Indianapolis Colts, 21-17.The next week, he led the Raiders to their first win, a 19-9 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.Mike Nugent, OSU’s kicker from 2001-04, gained newfound popularity with Ohio fans after kicking a game-winning 54 yard field goal for the Cincinnati Bengals to defeat the Detroit Lions Oct. 20.Other Buckeyes have been in the league for much longer than Pryor and Nugent, and have played on Super Bowl and Pro Bowl teams.One of the most successful veterans is linebacker A.J. Hawk, who was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 2006 and currently in his eighth season.Hawk was named to the Pro Football Weekly/Pro Football Writers Association All-Rookie Team in 2006, a Pro Bowl alternate in 2010, and was a member of the Packers team that defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV in 2011.Hawk’s former teammate, Santonio Holmes, is an eight-year veteran and current wide receiver for the New York Jets. In 2009, Holmes caught the game-winning touchdown and was named MVP of Super Bowl XLIII for the Pittsburgh Steelers in their victory against the Arizona Cardinals.In recent years, more college players enter the NFL Draft when they believe they are ready to join the professional ranks before they graduate. The decision to consider the draft also depends on if there are more benefits in joining the draft or staying an extra year in college.Buckeye coach Urban Meyer said for underclassmen, the decision to declare for the NFL Draft is ultimately up to the players themselves. However, he is critical in how the current NFL drafting system takes players after a very short college experience.“There’s a process in place by the National Football League that at first, I was very disappointed in the process, it’s very vague and I didn’t like it at all,” Meyer told ESPN’s Austin Ward in December. “I actually talked to (NFL commissioner) Roger Goodell several times about it … I think they’ve done a better job, I’m not here to berate that because I think they do a fine job, but it’s a very imperfect system.”Many players acknowledge their experiences as part of the Buckeye football program even after accomplishing major success in the professional ranks. Former Buckeye wide receiver Carter gave thanks to his alma mater during his acceptance speech to the NFL Hall of Fame earlier in 2013.“Buckeye, Born and Bred, now Hall of Famer, even after I’m dead,” Carter said.OSU is seen as one of the top schools for NFL talent, producing the third most draft picks of all time, and because of this, is able to assemble a very strong recruiting class. read more

Former Ohio State wide receiver Ray Small arrested

Former Ohio State receiver Ray Small was arrested in Meigs County, Ohio Sunday evening by the Ohio State Highway Patrol for allegedly possessing over 200 suspected Oxycontin tablets. According to a report from the Pomeroy Daily Sentinel, Trooper James Trelka of the Gallia-Meigs Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol arrested Small, 24, Sunday evening at 5:56 p.m. The report said that Small allegedly possessed 243 Oxycontin pills, an undisclosed amount of suspected heroin, hand-rolled marijuana cigarettes and a loaded 25-caliber pistol. The Lantern was able to confirm with the Meigs County Sheriff Office that they had Small in custody until Monday evening. Small was scheduled to report to Meigs County Court Monday where, reportedly, he was charged with the possession of a schedule II narcotic. According to the report, Small has since been released, although further charges are pending. The Ohio State Highway Patrol did not immediately respond to The Lantern‘s request for comment. It’s not the first time Small has been in hot water. Small, who was suspended a number of times throughout his career, told The Lantern last spring that he sold OSU memorabilia for cash, opening the floodgates on the OSU football tattoo scandal that began in December, 2010. The Lantern attempted to contact Small using the phone number he responded to during the May interview, but the number is no longer active. During his controversial career as a Buckeye, Small totaled 61 receptions for 659 yards and three touchdowns from 2006-09. read more

Ohio State baseball Thank God we got into this tournament

On the final day of the regular season, the Ohio State baseball team (31-25, 11-13 Big Ten) clinched the final spot in the Big Ten Tournament, but the scene was far from picturesque. The Buckeyes were swept in their final three regular-season series against Indiana, but advanced to the conference tournament because they held a tiebreaker advantage after finishing in the three-way tie for the final spot with Illinois and Minnesota. OSU coach Greg Beals said he was unaware of the tie-breaker scenario and thought the season had ended after his team’s Saturday loss against Indiana. “I did think it was over when we lost,” Beals said. “It was a crazy two-minute period of time when you go from trying to figure out how to tie the game up, then we lose and figuring out what I’m going to say to these guys.” Then, Beals got the good news. “I was met by Brett (Rybak), our (sports information director), and he tells us we’re in,” Beals said. Following this past weekend’s conference action, the Buckeyes had the best record of the three teams against common Big Ten opponents and won the tiebreaker. Sophomore first baseman Josh Dezse said it was incredible to find out the team made it in the Big Ten Tournament. “We thank God we got into this tournament,” Dezse said. “When we found out at the end of the game, we thought we were out and it was not pretty. When we found out we were in there, we couldn’t help but smile even though we were just swept. It was kind of weird because we didn’t know what to do, what coach was thinking. Do we smile? Are we happy or are we not happy? We had mixed emotions.” Players said it was tough playing the Indiana series and they didn’t stay loose as they had throughout the season. “All season we’ve played loose and felt that’s when we play our best baseball,” said sophomore outfielder Tim Wetzel. “Lately we haven’t been doing that. We’ve been pressing a little too hard and you can’t do that in this game. You have to play loose and fast and that’s what we’re going to try to do this tournament.” The Buckeyes finished the regular season with the most walks (264), sacrifice flies (31) and stolen bases (84) in the Big Ten. In addition to team accomplishments, Dezse was named to the John Olerud watch list for the best two-way player in the nation. “It’s like having two players in one,” Beals said about Dezse, who is the team’s first baseman and closer. “You have a limited number of scholarships and when you’re putting a team together, it’s really huge.” Dezse hit .305 with five home runs and 32 RBI, all of which were second-best on the team. Dezse led the team in saves with seven and also posted a 3.08 ERA. Sophomore pitcher John Kuchno led the Buckeyes in wins with an 8-3 record. However, sophomore pitcher Jaron Long led the team in ERA among starters with 2.29 and was the Buckeyes’ Friday night starter throughout Big Ten play. “He’s our guy and he’s proven that he’s our guy,” Beals said. “He’s earned the respect and confidence of our team. We knew that he had the ability and that he has a knack for knowing how to pitch.” The Buckeyes came into the season with what Beals said were “ramped-up expectations.” Beals said before the season, the team watched the movie “Miracle” and players drew inspiration from the story and will use it in the Big Ten Tournament. “With the U.S.A. team, I just keep going back to what did they have to lose,” Dezse said. “They had nothing to lose. Same with us, make us the underdog, whatever. We’re here to play and we’re here to win. We have enough talent here that we’ll be just fine.” The Buckeyes’ first game of the tournament is at 3:35 p.m. on Wednesday at Huntington Park in downtown Columbus. The Buckeyes’ second game will be based on the result of their game and the result of the noon game between Nebraska and Michigan State. read more

Trumps Indonesian business partner summoned

first_imgDonald TrumpUS President Donald Trump’s Indonesian business partner has been questioned by police over alleged threats against a public prosecutor, officials said Friday.Hary Tanoesoedibjo, a media and property mogul who is building two Trump Organization hotel projects, was summoned as a suspect Friday after an investigation was issued against him in June, a police spokesman said.The 51-year-old business tycoon and politician is being named a suspect after police charged him with violating the electronic information and transaction law.”Today is actually the second time we have summoned Hary Tanoesoedibjo. We have summoned him before but at that time his lawyer said he couldn’t show up,” national police spokesman Setyo Wasisto said.The billionaire was reported to police by an attorney named Yulianto, who like many Indonesians goes by one name.Yulianto claimed Tanoesoedibyo had threatened him via text messages in January 2016.The attorney was handling a graft case which involved Mobile-8 Telecom, a telecommunication company owned by Tanoesoedibyo.Tanoesoedibyo’s lawyer, Hotman Paris Hutapea, denied the messages were threats.”As humans we know what would be considered as threats and what not. What he said is something all politicians do,” Hutapea told AFP.Tanoesoedibyo’s company is in the process of building two luxury resorts in Indonesia which would be managed by Trump Hotels.The resorts are planned to be built on the popular tourist island of Bali and in Lido, West Java, just a couple of hours away from capital Jakarta. Construction on the hotels has not yet begun.Tanoesoedibyo attended the US president’s inauguration in January, and described Trump’s win as inspiring.Tanoesoedibyo is now banned from travelling abroad for the next six months, a spokesman of the immigration office told AFP, and if found guilty could be jailed for four years maximum.The billionaire ran in Indonesia’s 2014 election as candidate for vice president but failed to make it to the final round with his running mate.He later founded his own political party with many speculating he might run in the 2019 presidential election.last_img read more

Fears of Gentrification Shadow Northeast Community Development

first_imgSondra Phillips-Gilbert is a second term commissioner for the Rosedale Community,A new housing developments being built in Northeast, D.C. is raising concerns for members of the community, according an advisory neighborhood commissioner for Ward 6.Sondra Phillips-Gilbert is a second term commissioner for the Rosedale community that is located east of the H Street Corridor and northeast of Capitol Hill.“The fear of the community is we are being pushed out,” she told the AFRO, explaining that new construction in the community, specifically the Benning Road apartment building that will take the place of Trinidad Baptist Church, will displace several residents.  “A lot of people are going to be uprooted.”According to Phillips-Gilbert, Trinidad Baptist Church, which is across the street from Hechinger Mall, sold the building and now Valor Development is building a 10-story apartment complex in its place.The development date is scheduled for 2018 for what Valor Development has named The Valvaere. According to the company’s website, the Benning Road building will have 285 units.The major concern for current residents is whether the new development will include affordable housing that can apply with their budgets. The subsidized housing being offered is too expensive for current neighbors, according to Phillips-Gilbert, who said many low income people will be forced to move because they won’t be able to afford to live in the area anymore.She said she met with the developers at multiple ANC meetings, and asked if Valor Development would consider reducing the cost so current community members could afford to live at Valvaere.According to Felipe Serpa, a development manager from Valor Development, the company bases their rates off of the affordable housing numbers that the city council produces and regulates.Out of the projected 285 units, Serpa told the AFRO April 18 that they plan to make 20 to 23 units inclusionary zoning, which is based off of the area’s median income that is used to calculate subsidiary rents for future occupants.As of now, people making less than half of the area’s median income would have to pay $1,024 for a one bedroom unit and $1,229 for a two bedroom unit. Future occupants making around 80 percent of the area’s median income would have to pay $1,638 for a one bedroom unit and would pay $1,966 for a two bedroom, according to city guidelines.Serpa said the prices are subject to change because the company is three years out from actual developing the residence. The remaining units will be priced at market rent, he said.“The truth of the matter is development is going on all over the city,” Phillips-Gilbert said. “The areas where you find a lot of low income people are gold mines for developers.”“Money talks andpeople look up and they don’t have homes,” she said. Philips-Gilbert said a solution to the problem would be for the government to create laws that lower the affordable housing rates and ensure that businesses and developers follow the rates appropriately.“Somebody has to lookout for the little person because a lot of times no one cares about the poor,” she said.last_img read more
