₹ settles 8 paise higher at 6907 against

first_imgMumbai: The Indian rupee pared initial losses and closed 8 paise higher at 69.07 against the US currency on Thursday, supported by easing crude oil prices and weaker greenback. However, the rupee movement was confined to a narrow range as forex traders took a cautious approach ahead of the G20 Summit, which is taking place amidst ongoing US-China trade tiff and rising tensions in the Middle East, according to experts. At the interbank foreign exchange (forex) market, the domestic currency opened at 69.29 a dollar and touched a low of 69.32 and a high of 69.07 during the day. The local unit finally closed at 69.07 against the American currency, up 8 paise over its previous close. On Wednesday, the rupee had settled at 69.15 against the US dollar.”Easing of crude prices and gains in domestic equities markets during the Thursday’s trade helped the rupee to appreciate to the highest level since June 4, 2019,” said V K Sharma, Head PCG & Capital Markets Strategy, HDFC Securities. Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, fell 0.99 per cent to trade at $65.83 per barrel.last_img read more

Beijing confirms arrest of Australian for spying

first_imgBeijing: An Australian academic has been arrested in China for spying, Beijing said Tuesday, prompting Canberra to demand the country upholds “basic standards” of justice. Yang Jun, who also goes by his pen name Yang Hengjun, was detained in January shortly after making a rare return to China from the United States. Beijing said he was formally arrested last Friday and that the case was being “further processed.” Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne said earlier on Tuesday that she was “very concerned” that Yang — a former official turned author — had been arrested on “suspicion of espionage”. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”We expect that basic standards of justice and procedural fairness are met,” she added. After months without access to his lawyer or family, Yang now faces trial on charges that could bring a lengthy prison sentence. China’s near-silence about Yang’s fate has been a point of friction in relations with Australia that have markedly deteriorated in recent months. In a sharply worded statement, Payne said she had raised the case five times with her Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, in person and via letters. “Dr Yang has been held in Beijing in harsh conditions without charge for more than seven months,” Payne said, referencing international rules prohibiting torture.last_img read more

Sri Lankan student jailed for 10 weeks for molesting woman in lift

He followed her into a lift at a block at Buangkok Crescent and randomly pressed for the 10th floor. He then went towards the back of the lift, behind her. He could have been jailed for up to two years, fined, caned or received any combined punishment. (Colombo Gazette) As the lift was going up, he inched closer to the back of the victim.When the lift door opened at the 10th floor, he walked past her and simultaneously used his right hand to grab her buttock once, intending to outrage her modesty. A Sri Lankan student who molested a woman in a HDB lift in Singapore was jailed for 10 weeks today (May 3).Yattowita Withanage Buddhika Padmakumara, 28, pleaded guilty to grabbing the 33-year-old woman’s buttock in a lift at Buangkok Crescent at about 7.20pm on April 13 this year, the Straits Times reported.

Baazov confirms Dubai firm not part of funding for Amaya takeover

Amaya CEO David Baazov attends the company’s annual general meeting in Montreal, Monday, June 22, 2015. Baazov has confirmed that a company he said was financially backing his proposed takeover of the online gaming company has no plans to do so.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Graham Hughes MONTREAL – Amaya founder David Baazov has confirmed that a company he said was financially backing his proposed takeover of the online gaming firm has no plans to do so.In a statement Wednesday, Baazov said an equity commitment letter he received purporting to be from Dubai-based KBC Aldini Capital Ltd. was delivered without KBC’s knowledge or consent.“KBC has not committed to provide financing for the proposed acquisition of Amaya,” he said.He said he intends to secure replacement financing and sticks by his US$6.7 billion proposal to purchase Montreal-based Amaya (TSX:AYA), which would include its debt.Baazov, who resigned as Amaya’s CEO in August, said last week that he is leading a group of investors that has offered C$24 per share for the company, valuing Amaya at about C$3.48 billion.At the time, Baazov said he had lined up US$3.65 billion from Head & Shoulders Global Investment Fund and Goldenway Capital, both based in Hong Kong, Ferdyne Advisory, which is registered in the British Virgin Islands, and KBC Aldini Capital.Amaya has said it is reviewing the matter, adding that it has not entered into a definitive agreement with Baazov.Meanwhile, a Boston law firm said Wednesday it plans to file a lawsuit next week in U.S. federal court alleging that Baazov engaged in securities fraud or manipulation as a result of the proposed takeover offer.Lawyer Joel Fleming of Block & Leviton said it is acting on behalf of an investor who bought Amaya shares after Baazov announced his takeover offer last week, but lost money when Amaya’s share price plunged on reports that surfaced Tuesday saying KBC wasn’t part of the financing.“The allegation is that Baazov made misstatements in connection with the purchase or sale of securities — in other words, inflating the price of the Amaya stock that he owned by making what appeared to be misstatements about the strength of his bid,” Fleming said in an interview.Even if Baazov’s original offer included statements that weren’t deliberately false, he could still be liable if they were made recklessly, Fleming added.“Any sort of reasonable bidder for a company, any serious person, would take detailed steps to confirm their financing sources prior to making a statement,” he said.Baazov couldn’t be reached for comment.Baazov has been in the news this year on a separate matter. He has pleaded not guilty to five charges, including influencing or attempting to influence the market price of the securities of Amaya and communicating privileged information. His case was briefly before a Montreal court on Wednesday before it was adjourned to Dec. 13.He was charged as part of an investigation by the Quebec securities regulator that resulted in 23 charges against three people — Baazov, Yoel Altman and Benjamin Ahdoot — and three companies: Diocles Capital Inc., Sababa Consulting Inc. and 2374879 Ontario Inc. They have all pleaded not guilty.The charges stem from the alleged use of privileged information when trading company shares between December 2013 and the June 2014 announcement about Amaya’s US$4.9-billion deal to acquire the Oldford Group, which includes PokerStars.Baazov owns 17.2 per cent of Amaya’s shares, making him the company’s largest shareholder.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.

Program puts students lab skills to the test

With the help of a unique Brock program, Ben Davis has developed a very particular set of skills.The fifth-year Biotechnology student is at home in a laboratory, calibrating pH meters, differentiating centrifuge readings and administering aseptic cleaning techniques, all without the assistance of a professor or teaching assistant.As an undergraduate student, Davis has made himself stand out thanks to a co-curricular program that has prepared him for many of the practical demands that come with a career in science — Lab Skills Plus.The program, which offers workshops to help students document the laboratory skills they have learned, is the only one of its kind in Ontario. It is open to undergraduate students majoring in Biology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Science, Oenology and Viticulture, and Neuroscience.For Davis, participating in three-hour workshops focused on topics such as appropriate microscope technique and isolating DNA has helped him develop the confidence needed to take the next steps in his career.“I want to go into a field of research, and what better way to learn than to have free practice and guidance that also gets put on your Experience Plus transcript,” he said of the University’s co-curricular tracking mechanism. “In a lot of undergraduate teaching labs, you sometimes forget about developing transferrable skills. The Lab Skills Plus exercises focus on those skills and offer lots of independent practice.”Senior Lab Demonstrator Jacinta Dano, who co-founded the program three years ago, said Lab Skills Plus helps to augment students’ experiences in the lab by reinforcing lessons they will need going forward.“We realized that students were not connecting their lab skills to job opportunities and not seeing the potential that these skills had,” she said. “We felt if we could test them and give them a certificate listing their skills, they could use it in grad school or on job applications.”To do this, the program takes a more relaxed approach than most in-class lab exercises, offering sessions on Saturdays that are graded as pass or fail. Students are required to have a basic knowledge of lab procedures beforehand, but they are also encouraged to review and improve their competencies with the experienced instructors on site.The extra sessions enhanced Davis’ day-to-day studies.“It helped me feel less stressed and ahead of the game in my labs,” he said.  “I was able to focus on other parts of my assignments and was more confident about pursuing an honours research project.”Though he ultimately hopes to use his newly acquired skills to advance in graduate school and a laboratory-based career, Davis has already seen the benefits of completing the program’s beginner and intermediate levels.“The program really kick-started opportunities for me during my undergrad,” he said. “My experience helped me get connected with a PhD student in Professor Vincenzo De Luca’s lab, who I volunteered with in my fourth year. That work led to an honours project with Professor De Luca as well as an undergraduate research grant.”Davis appreciates the care put into the program by those in charge.“Jacinta and her team truly care about teaching people,” he said. “She always goes out of her way to prepare better experiments for us.”As he attempts to complete the program’s advanced level this year and wraps up his honours thesis, Davis is hopeful that other students will realize the advantage Lab Skills Plus provides.“If you want to go into the workforce, you are instantly ahead of anyone else in terms of relevant experience,” he said. And in research, it’s the only extracurricular that will bolster your resumé above anyone else’s.”Lab Skills Plus allows students to sign up at any time and runs its testing sessions for three hours on scheduled Saturdays.Students interested in participating in Lab Skills Plus can email Maja Milakovic at mmilakovic@brocku.cato learn more. read more

first_imgInter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic scored a 94th-minute winner to give the club a well-deserved victory at Sampdoria in a match which saw three goals ruled out by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system, according to BBC.Inter had its two goals disallowed in the game after Radja Naingollan’s strike in the first half. Kwadwo Asamoah’s second-half goals were ruled out, while Sampdoria were also on the wrong side of the VAR system when Gregoire Defrel has his effort disallowed.Ex-Belgium international Radja Naingollan saw his effort ruled out because of an offside in the buildup while Asamoah saw his goal disallowed because the ball had earlier gone out of bounds.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….VAR spotted an offside before what Defrel thought was a late winner for the home side and to make matters worse for the Frenchman, he was booked for removing his shirt for celebrating the disallowed goal.Croatia international Marcelo Brozovic struck in the dying moments to earn Luciano Spalletti’s men only their second win of the Serie A season so far.The win lifts Inter to seventh on the log, one place behind Saturday’s opponents Sampdoria.

New Infant School Opens in Negril Jamaica

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, December 8, 2017 – Montego Bay – The new state-of-the-art West End Infant School, in Negril, Westmoreland, was officially opened on Wednesday, December 6.   The facility, which commenced classes in September, is the result of a public-private partnership among the Sandals Foundation, the CHASE Fund and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information.  The school has the capacity to accommodate 160 students, with 60 students on roll so far.It was built at a cost of just over $111 million with funding from the Sandals Foundation and the CHASE Fund, and comprises eight classrooms with accompanying resource rooms and bathroom facilities, a large kitchen and dining room/recreational area, a staffroom, sickbay and principal’s office.   The property also has a garden and playground. All the furniture and educational resources were donated by School Specialty, a United States-based company that supplies school equipment.In his address at the ceremony, Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, said he is extremely proud that the school has already met 98 per cent of the required standards set by the Early Childhood Commission (ECC), and within a month, following additional requisite teacher-training sessions, will reach the 100 per cent mark.He also expressed gratitude to the two donor agencies for working with the Ministry to establish the school, which he said is crucial to national development.   He called for the provision of further support to other Ministry initiatives, such as the nutrition and school-bus programme, which he said will greatly impact human development in the western end of the island.Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of the CHASE Fund, William ‘Billy’ Heaven, said his organisation, which has been a key supporter of the early-childhood-education sector for the past 15 years, provided $48 million towards the construction of the school.   He emphasised that early-childhood development continues to be of critical importance to the Fund, and that returns of investment in the sector can be as high as $17 for every $1 invested.“We at CHASE understand and we underscore the value of early-childhood education not only to the individual but also to the society.   Even more critical, we understand that this is the stage that determines what adult this child will become, and there is great need to maximise the future well-being of each and every child who attends this institution,” Mr. Heaven said.Release: JIS Related Items:last_img read more

Community joins to fortify sustain support

first_imgWhile a Vancouver police officer recovered in the intensive care unit after being shot, more than 150 community members gathered on the hospital lawn Tuesday at dusk to show him their support. Many had never met Officer Dustin Goudschaal, but they wanted to let him know that he was in their thoughts and prayers; they lit candles and left flowers in front of the hospital. The motorcycle officer was rushed to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center Monday morning after he was shot during a traffic stop in east Vancouver. City councilor Anne McEnerny-Ogle organized Tuesday’s gathering and spread the word through social media. She said she wanted to send some positive energy to Goudschaal. As part of Neighbors On Watch, a volunteer group that works to deter crime, she felt it was the right thing to do. “We can’t heal him, but we can support him,” she said.Sam Robinson of Vancouver, interim chairman of the Chinook Indian Nation, sang a blessing at the gathering. He blessed Goudschaal, his family and friends, the healers at the hospital, and his fellow police officers.“They are warriors just like our ancestors were,” he said. “My heart goes out to everybody.” When Robinson saw police tape just blocks from his house in east Vancouver, his thoughts immediately went to the injured officer. He said he’s always appreciated what police officers do and eagerly took the opportunity to join the healing process.last_img read more

Tim Watson struck out three in two innings while Joe Gronemeyer fanned six in three innings.Ronnan Scafiddi, John Roofe, and Gronemeyer supplied singles while others such as Ethan Afthim, Luke Kitanov, and Watson ripped balls that were flagged down by the Giants’ terrific defense.

Alaskan Writers Push to Finish a Novel in a Month

first_imgDownload AudioNearly 500 Alaskans are trying to write a novel this month. An entire novel. They’re participating in November National Novel Writing Month, a worldwide movement aimed at getting people writing. Some of the writers gathered at Anchorage’s Loussac Public Library. For the most part, the room of writers at the library is pretty quiet. Teens and adults holding laptops and tablets sit at tables and lounge on the bench, occasionally chatting. Except for Abby Foster, who plunks away on the old school typewriter she calls Gus. This is the seventh time she’s participated in National Novel Writing Month, affectionately called NaNoWriMo. She says Gus helped her surpass her goal of writing 50,000 words this month.“It gets rid of the inner editor when I’m using it so I can just keep typing,” she says while typing.  “And there’s no delete key.”Foster volunteers with the non-profit called NaNoWriMo, which runs the novel writing competition and coordinates events like the Write-ins at the library. She says it takes a lot of things to get people through the process.“A little bit of craziness…” she says.  “A lot of people swear by caffeine. I swear by chocolate. But probably the best thing to have if you want to do a novel in a month is support.”Part of Foster’s role is to provide support to a group of teens she’s been volunteering with through different youth writing groups.One of those teens is high school senior Zach Butch. He’s working on a graphic novel about the unplanned misadventures of four goofy friends trying to save an artifact from a corrupt government. He’s a little sensitive about his progress.“Are you trying to insinuate that I haven’t been keeping up with my word count at all?” he says when asked how he’s progressing.Butch admits he hasn’t been, but that’s not his goal. He says he’s working hard on a project he put aside when he was 14 and he’s having fun doing it.Eighth grader Max Kelchner takes his 20,000 word count more seriously since he signed a contract with himself to do it. He says he’s almost finished writing his novel about a boy who is writing a novel. It’s like a book within a book.“There are quite a few parts where it’s funny,” he says. “It’s heartfelt.”Kelchner offers solid advice for people pursuing writing.“Put your work into sections maybe, words a day, words a week. For some people that are really have a bunch of ideas going through their head that disappear quickly, you should really write them down.”Alana Terry, who has already published several novels, says the great thing about NaNoWriMo is that you have a support group and it forces you to really just write.“I think when I’m writing by myself it’s fairly easy to daydream or wander or say, ‘Hey I’m going to go research this.’ When you’re doing it and paying attention to the word count and the time frame, you just get it out.”The program started in 1999. So far this month, Alaskan participants have written nearly 7.8 million words.last_img read more

Fear of trying new food linked to low selfesteem

first_imgChildren who are hesitant to try new food even during their adolescence may have a poor diet and also suffer from low self-esteem and anxiety problems, suggests new research.However, forcing them to try such foods at the dining table against their will may also backfire, the researchers warned. To avoid this problem it is important that there exists a strong parental bond with the child, said researcher Edurne Maiz from University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in Spain. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’She also recommended, “Having a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere at meal times, that the children should participate in preparing the food and doing the shopping, using positive reinforcements and, finally, being a good model”.The behaviour involving rejection of new foodstuffs is a typical phase in infant development, above all in two- to tree-year-olds and which subsides around the age of five.Maiz conducted the study on 831 school children between the ages of eight and 16.  In the study, she used questionnaires on infant neophobia—in which the participants were asked about whether they were prepared to eat new foodstuffs. The neophobic participants displayed a lower quality index in terms of the Mediterranean diet, and this is mainly due to the reduced consumption of fruit and vegetables and an increase in foods regarded as being for occasional consumption.

In adolescence, too, their scores in family and physical self-concept were lower.last_img read more

September 14, 2009 – Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) enables cardiac morphology with high and isotropic spatial resolution, according to a new study published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Volume 54, No. 13. September 22, 2009.Cardiac CT, although mainly used to visualize the coronary arteries after intravenous contrast injection and detect or rule out coronary artery stenoses (coronary computed tomography angiography [CTA]), also allows visualization of cardiac morphology with high and isotropic spatial resolution.In datasets acquired for coronary artery visualization, information on the structure and, in some cases, function of the entire heart is contained. The authors of this retrospective analysis of a large cohort who underwent coronary CTA found that cardiac pathology unrelated to coronary atherosclerosis could be identified in up to 5 percent of cases. Therefore, coronary CTA datasets should be thoroughly evaluated for noncoronary cardiac findings.Reference: Thomas Knickelbine, John R. Lesser, Tammy S. Haas, Eric R. Brandenburg, B.

Pending Home Sales Up Over Last Month Reach Highest Point in Two

first_img April 29, 2015 492 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Pending Home Sales Up Over Last Month, Reach Highest Point in Two Years Pending home sales rose for the third straight month in March, and according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Pending Home Sales Index, they’re at their highest point since June 2013.The index, an indicator of sales based on contract signings, was released this morning. It showed a 1.1 percent increase in pending sales for March and an 11.1 percent increase over the same time last year. This marks the third month in a row the sales have risen and the seventh year that pending sales numbers have improved.The Pending Home Sales Index was at its highest point in June 2013, coming in at 109.4. As of March, it has now reached 108.6, its peak since that time.The index also broke down pending home sales by region. While the South and West saw an increase of 4 percent and 1.7 percent for March, respectively, the Northeast and Midwest saw drops, decreasing by 1.5 percent and 2.5 percent.All regions were up over March 2014. The Northeast rose .6 percent, the Midwest was up 11.3 percent, the West jumped 15.6 percent, and the South increased 12.4 percent.As for explaining the ever-increasing sales, Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR, attributes it to a competitive spring market and an improving number of long-term homeowners.“Demand appears to be stronger in several parts of the country, especially in metro areas that have seen solid job gains and firmer economic growth over the past year,” Yun said. “While contract activity being up convincingly compared to a year ago is certainly good news, the increased number of traditional buyers who appear to be replacing investors paying in cash is even better news. It indicates this year’s activity is being driven by more long-term homeowners.”Yun also said he expects sales to continue improving over the next few months, but that supply and rising prices could hinder them slightly.“Demand in many markets is far exceeding supply, and properties in March sold at a faster rate than any month since last summer,” he said. “This in turn has pushed home prices to unhealthy levels — nearly four or more times above the pace of wage growth in some parts of the country. Simply put, housing inventory for new and existing homes needs to improve measurably to improve affordability.”See the index at Realtor.org.center_img Share Housing Market NAR National Association of Realtors Pending-Home Sales 2015-04-29 Seth Welbornlast_img read more
