Over 1000 Jet Airways pilots to go ahead with no flying call

first_imgMumbai: Over 1,000 pilots of the struggling private carrier Jet Airways have decided to go ahead with their “no flying” call from April 1 following the airline failing to receive funds from the banks Friday, its pilots guild has said. The airline said in a statement that every effort was being made to restore normalcy of operations. The National Aviators Guild (NAG), the body claiming representation of some 1,100 pilots at Jet Airways, had last week announced its decision not to fly from April 1 if their pending salaries were not cleared and clarity on the revival plan not provided by March 31.

Unfortunately, the fund transfer has not taken place, and there is also no update on salary payment from the management. The collective decision of pilots taken at Mumbai and Delhi open house effective 1 April prevails,” NAG president Karan Chopra said in a late evening communication to his members.

Earlier on Friday, a source said that around 200 pilots had written individually to Jet CEO Vinay Dube, threatening to go on “leave of absence”, and they were also planning to take legal recourse over non-payment of salary. A source in the pilots’ community said around 200 pilots have written to the CEO flagging concerns about non-payment of salaries. The pilots are also members of the NAG, the source added.last_img read more

Morocco has Proof of Polisarios Presence in Western Sahara Buffer Zones

Rabat – Morocco’s Head of Government, Saad Eddine El Othmani, has responded to statements made by United Nations Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric on Polisario’s presence in Western Sahara buffer zone, stressing that Morocco has evidence of the separatists’ repeated illegal actions in the region.On April 2, Dujarric said in a briefing in New York that the UN mission in Western Sahara has not observed any military presence in the buffer zones, in contrast to what Morocco’s appeals.In response, El Othmani told the press that the government has evidence of Polisario’s actions. “We have evidence that Moroccan localities beyond the defense resources been taken over by the separatists to install pseudo-administrations,” said the head of government.El Othmani said that Morocco will provide the UN with evidence in “a timely manner,” adding that “nobody has the right to touch a single inch of the Moroccan Sahara.”El Othmani also mentioned the ongoing US visit of Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita, to hold talks with senior officials in Washington and New York.Bourita will also meet with the UNSG Antonio Guterres at about 1 p.m. in New York to discuss Morocco’s concerns over the presence of Polisario and its intention to relocate its facilities, including its “defense headquarters,” to the restricted zone of Bir Lahlou. read more

King Mohammed VI Africa Will Be Key Factor to Migration Compact

Rabat – King Mohammed VI addressed a message to the leaders and representatives of the countries taking place in the intergovernmental conference on migration in Marrakech on Monday.Read by Morocco’s Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani, the King’s message emphasized Morocco’s commitment toward migration and the need for shared responsibility as a principle to tackle migration challenges.He dedicated the first lines of his message to thanking and welcoming  leaders to Marrakech and Africa. “What more symbolic venue could there be for this landmark event that has brought us together today than Africa – the cradle of the first human movement – than Morocco, an origin, transit, and destination country, and, finally, than Marrakech – its timeless melting pot?” he said.Read Also: Guterres Welcomes Marrakech’s ‘Fantastic Miracle’ Conference CenterKing Mohammed VI also expressed pride in Morocco being chosen to host the event: “I say ‘pride’ because the international community has chosen to convene this global even in the kingdom of Morocco and humility, given the magnitude the issue, of what has already been achieved and of what is still to be done.”The monarch also said that Morocco’s efforts throughout the years to tackle migration are “neither recent nor incidental.”The King emphasized Morocco’s “longstanding, voluntary commitment expressed through a policy which is humane in its philosophy, global in its substance, pragmatic in its methodology and responsible in its approach.”The King then recalled his African Agenda on Migration, which was unanimously adopted by the African Union Conference in January 2018.When introduced to the AU through a message read by El Othmani at the 30th AU Summit, the King described the agenda as a “flexible, scalable, and legally non-binding document.”In his message to the AU, the King said that migration should be seen as a “natural phenomenon” and should be celebrated.“We should adopt a positive stance on the issue of migration by highlighting the humanistic rationale of shared responsibility and solidarity.”Today in Marrakech, the sovereign reiterated his message, emphasizing that Africa should not be the subject of the Global Compact, but the African continent “will be an actor—a key one.”He said that the African agenda has been playing a “pioneering role, anticipating the importance of being aware of migratory dynamics, something which has been acknowledged by the global compact.”The King concluded his message by calling for solidarity-based sovereignty, multilateralism, and a shared responsibility to face migration challenges. read more

Bonn UN climate conference to maintain ambition one year after Paris accords

“While Paris represented one of those moments where the best of humanity achieved an agreement so important to our collective futures, Bonn represents how we will move forward to fulfill its promise”, said the Executive Secretary of United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Patricia Espinosa, on the margins of a ministerial meeting in Fiji on 17 October 2017 to prepare for the Bonn Conference of the Convention’s States Parties. “We are running out of time to turn things around. To do so, we must significantly increase our efforts to reduce emissions and our carbon footprints,” she added. The Paris Agreement, which was adopted by the 196 Parties to the UNFCCC in December 2015 in the French capital after which it is named, calls on countries to combat climate change by limiting the rise of global temperature below 2 degrees Celsius and strive not to exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius. A year ago, the Marrakech Climate Conference concluded with the Marrakech Action Proclamation, for our climate and sustainable development, in which the UNFCCC States Parties affirmed their “commitment” to the “full implementation” of the Paris Agreement. Today, 169 Parties have ratified the Agreement. At the Bonn Conference, informally known as COP 23, countries will seek to move forward in completing the rule book for operationalizing the Paris Agreement. The Conference, which runs until 17 November, is chaired by Fiji, an island State particularly affected by the impacts of climate change. “Never has our work been more necessary. We see this with respect to the extreme weather events affecting almost every continent throughout the world,” said Ms. Espinosa. COP 23 President and Fiji Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama agrees. “We can no longer ignore this crisis. Whether it is fires in California, Portugal and Spain. Flooding in Nigeria, India and Bangladesh. The dramatic Arctic melt. Ice breaking off the continent of Antarctica. The recent hurricanes that devastated the Caribbean and the southern United States […] It’s hard to find any part of the world that is unaffected by these events”, he said at the ministerial meeting in Fiji. Bonn Conference an opportunity to boost climate risk management effortsIn an op-ed published in October 2017, Ms. Espinosa, alongside the Administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), Achim Steiner, and the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Disaster Risk Reduction, Robert Glasser, said the Bonn Conference “provides an opportunity to not only accelerate emission reductions but also boost the serious work of ensuring that the management of climate risk is integrated into disaster risk management as a whole.”A week before the opening of the Bonn Conference, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) announced that the levels of carbon dioxide (C02) surged at “record-breaking speed” to new highs in 2016. The Bonn Conference will feature a series of meetings and events, including the high-level segment, on 15 November and 16 November, attended by Heads of State and Government, Ministers, and UN Secretary-General António Guterres.Mr. Guterres has invited leaders to consider championing six high-impact areas at a special Climate Summit in 2019. These areas are investment in clean technology, maturing carbon pricing, enabling the energy transition, risk mitigation and building resilience, augmenting the contribution of sub-national actors and business and mobilizing climate finance. “Increasing ambition is the only way to keep the global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius this century, and as close to 1.5 degree as possible. By focusing on these sectors, we can substantially reduce the gap between where we are and where we need to be,” said UN Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed, at the pre-COP meeting in Fiji. Among the side events scheduled at COP 23, several will be organized under the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action to show how cities, regions, private sector companies and investors are trying to implement the Paris Agreement in the areas of energy, water, agriculture, oceans and coastal areas, human settlements, transportation, industry, and forests. read more

Turners position switch leads to uncertain rotation

It’s no secret that the Ohio State men’s basketball team wants to run its offense through Evan Turner. Coming off a season in which he led the team in nearly every offensive category, the junior will again be the Buckeyes’ focal point, but from a new position.Turner, who spent the majority of his first two years as a forward, is expected to transition this season into OSU’s point guard position.However, his move to the point creates a log jam on the Buckeyes’ roster. Both P.J. Hill and Jeremie Simmons played significant time at the position last season and there is debate where each will fit in this year. Perhaps the easiest and most likely solution for Simmons, a senior, is to move him to shooting guard. The former junior-college transfer is thought to be one of the better outside shooters on the team, and said he expects to see time at both positions.“[The coaches] still want me to play some point guard because I can handle the ball,” Simmons said, “but I think I’ll play a little more wing this year.”It is also possible that because the Buckeyes plan to have a faster pace on offense this year, both Turner and another point guard could be on the court simultaneously, Simmons said.“I like the up-tempo ball,” he said. “We can have two point guards out there at the same time because it’s like the spread offense. Everybody can bring up the ball.”For Hill, also a former junior-college transfer, competing for play time is nothing new. He entered last season as a third-string point guard, behind both Simmons and Anthony Crater. But when Crater transferred out of the program after just 10 games, Hill found himself in competition for the starting spot.In the team’s 26th game of the season, and the 49th game of Hill’s career, the senior made his first start. After waiting his turn for nearly two years, he appeared to be ready to take the reins as the Buckeyes’ point guard. Now Hill might have to take a back seat again. It is inevitable that as Turner takes over the position, Hill will see less playing time than expected, but he said he fully supports the change.“Evan, he’s real versatile and he can do a lot of stuff for us,” Hill said. “Coach [Matta] believes that, and I believe too, that wherever coach puts him at will be best for the team and will make us successful.”While some may see the move as a demotion for Hill, he said being designated to a backup role is more positive than negative.“It definitely doesn’t take away from my game,” Hill said. “It actually adds to it, because it makes me work harder and then be more productive in the time that I’m on the court.”Even though Turner will start at point guard, Matta said he expects the team to use him at nearly every position on the floor. As Turner moves through the lineup, there will be chances for Hill to make an impact.If there was an argument to be made for Hill’s playing time, he made it himself during the team’s summer exhibition games in Canada. In the Buckeyes’ 90-39 win over the University of Windsor, Hill shot seven of nine from the field and recorded 18 points in just 20 minutes of play.Hill’s 18 points were more than he has ever scored in a Buckeye uniform, but just like he has done in the past, Hill has embraced his role on the team, no matter what it is. “I’m just going to get in where I fit in,” Hill said. “When I come in the game I’ll just be productive as usual. I’ll bring energy and just try to make a big impact.”Regardless of when and where Hill and Simmons end up playing this season, the Buckeyes will live and die with the play of Turner at the point, and Hill expects Turner to thrive at his new position.“Evan is such a great player and he can not only create for himself, but he can create for others,” Hill said. “Good things happen when he has the ball. He’s a very special player.” read more

Microsofts privacybydefault in IE10 sparks opposition

first_img(Phys.org) — The Internet browser headache in having to initiate an opt-out exit from advertisers who keep landing on your pages because they think they have a plausible target has turned a corner. Microsoft has moved to turn the practice upside down, or rather inside out. Users will have to opt-in to invite advertisers in the latest version of Internet Explorer, IE10. Microsoft has made the ‘Do Not Track’ feature, which stops companies from being able to trace a user’s web behavior, the default setting. In doing so, Microsoft has made IE10 the only web browser to present the tracking feature as an opt-in, not an opt-out, proposition. Explore further © 2012 Phys.Org More information: ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/ In announcing the on-default DNT policy for IE10 in Windows 8, Brandon Lynch, the Chief Privacy Officer of the company, said the move was inspired by the FTC’s work in calling on both technology and advertising sectors to come up with a uniform mechanism for online behavioral targeting of ads. Also taking the message forward, the corporate vice president of Internet Explorer, Dean Hachamovitch, said a Windows user experience that is ‘private by default’ arrives at a time when so much user data is collected online.”We think it is progress and that consumers will favor products designed with their privacy in mind over products that are designed primarily to gather their data,” he stated.Not surprisingly, news of consumers to experience private by default in their IE browsers fell like a breath of fresh air for greater-privacy supporters and like a ton of bricks for advertisers. The question being posed is whether or not other browser groups will do the same as Microsoft. The sentiment among those against the move is that the decision comes in an already ailing economy, where the move could deal a blow to advertising networks counting on the efficacy of personalized, targeted ads.Voicing its opposition, the Association of National Advertisers issued a statement that Microsoft, in making that decision, had acted “irresponsibly.” The association referred to Microsoft’s “unilateral decision” to embed ‘Do Not Track’ functionality in version 10 of its IE browser with a default setting in the on versus off position. The Association, which has a membership of 450 companies, raised the argument that the decision “removes choice by preventing consumers from experiencing interest-based advertising and making an informed decision about its benefits, the result of which will be untargeted, irrelevant online advertising.”Microsoft looks forward to other industry leaders making the same kind of move, nonetheless. “We also know from experiences – such as the P3P standard recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) – that initiatives to advance privacy are much less effective if other industry leaders don’t join in adopting the approach,” said Lynch. DNT is optional; websites don’t need to support it. Wariness about user-behavior tracking, and now the idea of DNT by default, are likely to raise noise around this issue. Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) who co-sponsored the Do Not Track Kids Act of 2011 along with Joe Barton (R-TX), has called the decision “an important first step towards greater privacy protections for consumers,” but he wants to see some next steps too. “It is my hope that Microsoft and other companies will go further in the future, so that Do Not Track also means ‘Do Not Collect’, giving consumers the ability to say no to both targeted advertising and collection of their personal data.”IE10 will be the browser on Windows 8, due for general release later this year.center_img Microsoft unveils new privacy feature for IE This document is subject to copyright.

Italys new rightwing Minister for Families says gay families dont exist

first_imgLorenzo Fontana is Italy’s new Minister for Families and Disabilities (Photo: Facebook) Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . Italy has finally agreed a new Government following a March 2018 election in which no one party earned a ruling majority. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… GAYSTARNEWS- eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) The new Government is headed by Giuseppe Conte. He has forged a coalition arrangement between the right-wing Northern League and Five Star Movement. Because of this, several Northern League politicians have landed Ministerial positions.One already making headlines is Lorenzo Fontana. The deeply Conservative Catholic has spoken out against women’s reproductive rights and LGBTI families. Previously, addressing an anti-abortion rally, he said that gay marriage and changing concepts of gender would, ‘wipe out our community and our traditions.’Last year, he criticized the Court of Appeal in Trento when it offered parental recognition to two gay dads. He called the ruling, ‘a dangerous precedent, which opens up unsettling scenarios.’In an interview over the weekend with Corriere della Sera following his appointment last week, he was grilled on his attitudes towards gay people.Fontana said that the family was the cornerstone of all society. He has previously stated supporting the notion of the ‘traditional family’. When asked if he was anti-gay, he said ‘I have many homosexual friends. After all I lived in Brussels for many years where many gay people hold positions in institutions.‘They don’t exist at the moment, as far as the law is concerned’Italy does not allow single people or gay couples to adopt or foster children. However, some local courts have offered formal recognition to gay couples – in cases of step-child adoption and some IVF parenting.Nevertheless, Fontana was quick to point out there is no nationwide law offering such recognition.‘A law does not exist in this regard.’ Asked how he planned to treat ‘rainbow families’, he said that he would never discriminate against children, regardless of their parents. However, he questioned whether rainbow families technically ‘exist’ in Italy.When the interviewer says they do exist and there are many in Italy, he responded: ‘They don’t exist at the moment, as far as the law is concerned.’Fontana went on to say that he wanted to empower doctors to do more to discourage women from having abortions.‘I am Catholic, I do not hide it. That’s why I believe the family is the natural one, where a child must have a mother and a father.’In response to the interview, dozens of images of rainbow families have been posted to Fontana’s social media pages with the message: ‘We exist.’Cathy La Torre, who began the campaign, told La Repubblica the ‘troll-bombing’ action ‘will be peaceful, not offensive and with the aim of demonstrating that we exist.’Following Fontana’s appointment, another social media campaign also sprung up after a Twitter user announced she’d donated 10 Euros to Arcigay, one of Italy’s leading LGBT advocacy groups, in the Minister’s name. Others have now followed suit.Ho appena donato 10 euro ad Arcigay a nome del ministro Lorenzo Fontana.Ciao. pic.twitter.com/7rPWRB6ntU— simonamelani (@simonamelani) June 1, 2018See alsoSame-sex couple reach Dancing with the Stars grand final Disappointment for LGBT rights in Taiwan after gay tourism is boomingGay News Europe | Gay news, entertainment, celebrities, family and storiesPoland’s defence minister calls LGBTI parade a ‘march of sodomites’Read the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/italy-lorenzo-fontana-gay-families/last_img read more

With few options organic coffee farmers search for sustainable solutions to devastating

first_imgNo related posts. At first glance, the ochre blotches on the waxy green leaves of a coffee tree appear more like a mild-mannered sunspot than a fungus that has ravaged Central America’s acclaimed coffee industry. Leaf rust, or “la roya” in Spanish, has been making waves since January, when Costa Rica and several other countries declarednational coffee emergencies because of the fungus.Nearly 50 percent of coffee plantations have been infected with the fungus in the region, where nearly 2 million mostly small farmers make their living from coffee, according to a report from the International Coffee Organization. The same report estimates that upwards of 64 percent of Costa Rica’s coffee-growing regions are suffering from leaf rust damage.While conventional coffee growers struggle with the devastating fungus, organic farmers face a unique challenge. Organic farmers in Costa Rica are working to find sustainable solutions to coexisting with leaf rust, Hemileia vastatrix, but there are few organic options to treat roya when it strikes beyond copper sulfate fungicide and a prayer.“There are no silver bullets when it comes to leaf rust and organic farmers have even fewer options,” said Pam Kahl, a representative from Sustainable Harvest, a U.S. coffee importer based in Portland, Oregon, who runs the Roya Recovery Project.  Prevention vs. reactionThe fungus spreads through direct contact. Once infected, the plant’s leaves dry out and its coffee cherries fail to mature properly. Farmers must prune back all the infected parts of the plant to attempt to save the rest of the tree and prevent the fungus’ progression. Large monoculture coffee plantations are especially vulnerable to roya.So far, MAG has been providing organic coffee farmers with an approved copper sulfate fungicide but several sources interviews for this story agreed that it is not a long-term solution, according to Luis Zamora, national coffee manager for Costa Rica’s Agriculture and Livestock Ministry (MAG). He noted that any fungicide or pesticide, regardless of its organic seal of approval, should be used sparingly and with great care so as not to contaminate nearby water sources.Organic coffee’s ethos, however, might be its greatest defense against the spread of leaf rust. “Organic farming is more about anticipating problems than reacting to them,” said Julio César Chacón, who works at Las Lajas organic coffee farm in Sabanilla, Alajuela. “It’s a question of improving the soil and creating ideal conditions for the plant so that it can better resist diseases like leaf rust.”Chacón opined that organic farming practices and the relatively high altitude at which their coffee is grown serves as a strong deterrent to leaf rust.Organic farms like Las Lajas, which climbs as high as 4,900 feet above sea level, plant their coffee under a canopy of banana and other trees. This strategy nurtures a diverse growing environment that makes it difficult for roya to spread quickly from plant to plant. There is a trade-off, however: sun-drenched fields produce more coffee, enticing many farmers to abandon shade-grown coffee.Zamora pointed out that every farm is different, however, and that organic practices alone are not a sure-fire guarantee against the virulent fungus. Dry, hot but humid created an ideal environment for the fungus this year, reaching heights where it was never seen before. Some scientists suggest that climate change may also be responsible for roya’s wide reach.Organic alternativesChristian Mora Rojas, general manager for the Organic Families’ Association of the Caraigres Mountains, or AFAORCA, told The Tico Times that they are experimenting with several organic alternatives to copper-based fungicides. Echoing Chacón’s belief in prevention, Mora agreed that stronger, healthier plants are more likely to successfully fend off roya.Oddly enough, one of the best organic alternatives to fighting leaf rust could be another fungus. Mora said that AFAORCA is experimenting with Lecanicidium, Trichoderma and other parasitic fungi that attack leaf rust and other pests. The parasitic fungi eat leaf rust spores, limiting the fungus’ ability to spread to other plants and farms.While these fungi offer attractive organic alternatives to conventional fungicides, AFAORCA’s experiments remain small-scale, wary about the unknown impact of widespread application of these fungi. The group has also seen promising developments from plants treated with a fish-based fertilizer that comes from the Pacific province of Puntarenas.Mora admitted that these findings, while encouraging, were not immediate solutions to an organic farm in the midst of a roya rash.“There’s no time to experiment, there is a crisis going on,” said Zamora, encouraging farmers to treat their fields when they find evidence of leaf rust.MAG estimates that there will be a 20 percent drop in production next year that could knock tens of thousands of small farmers out of the coffee business for two to three years. The specialty coffee-producing country recently approved debate on a $40 million bill to aid to small farmers affected by the leaf rust outbreak.The current wave of leaf rust in Central America is the worst since it was first found in the isthmus in 1976. PROMECAFE, a coffee research organization based in Guatemala, estimates that roya could cost the isthmus $500 million.Despite the devastation caused by leaf rust in Cost Rica, Mora mused that there might yet be a sliver lining to this crisis. “Many of the plants most affected were the weakest and worn out. If 30 percent of the region’s coffee has to be re-planted, it’s a unique opportunity to replenish the fields,” he said. “If we can find a way to co-exist with the leaf rust, we’ll be stronger for it.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

ACI Reportgender salary gapjob satisfactiontravel

first_imgACI Reportgender salary gapjob satisfactiontravel industry The 2017 ‘Salary & Employment Trends Report’ by ACI HR Solutions released this week confirms that the disparity in the salaries men and women earn across the Asia-Pacific’s travel, tourism, hospitality and lifestyle industry sectors is real, not imagined!In fact, the report points to a widening of the gender salary gap, and says that despite female executives being seen to be making inroads toward professional equality, their male counterparts continue to earn substantially more – the report’s male respondents’ earnings were 55% higher than those of the report’s female respondents. Disappointingly, that 55% figure is augmented because fewer women than men hold senior positions in travel, tourism and hospitality as they move into older age groups.“Surprisingly, given the amount of discussion and coverage professional equality receives, and some of our clients having wonderful initiatives implemented, not only have we not seen the gap narrow, but over the past three years we have actually seen it widen from 48% in 2015 to 55% in 2016,” said ACI founder & CEO Andrew Chan.“While the gap appears large, drilled down the 55% isn’t a position vs position gap – the 55% represented our overall survey, which actually highlights the disparity in the number of women holding senior positions.“The graph that best describes this in the report is the one that indicates the age of respondents by gender showing far less female respondents as the age group increases.“This ultimately shows us, irrespective of the salary component, there are far less females holding senior positions across these industry sectors in roles such as general managers and CEOs.”Read the full report here.last_img read more

first_imgIt appears that not everyone is excited about the possibility of Kevin Kolb joining the Arizona Cardinals.Former Cardinals tight end Anthony Becht recently tweeted that the Cardinals need more help than just a quarterback. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Little salty? RT @Anthony_Becht Breaston out. One playmaker left. At this point QB doesn’t matter. Have fun this yr;) #cardsless than a minute ago via Twittelator Favorite Retweet ReplyJay Feelyjayfeely Comments   Share   What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories While Becht may be on to something, his tweet does come across as bitter or “salty” as Jay Feely puts it.Becht, who had 10 catches and one touchdown in his lone season as a Cardinal is currently a free agent.With the loss of Breaston, the Cardinals are a bit thin at wide receiver and could also use some help on the offensive line.There is no doubt that a team who went 5-11 last season has multiple holes to fill, but as a player with no team, Becht is not in a position to take shots. Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right awaylast_img read more

place of the playground protests erupted “We didn’t want buildings for the current residents but a ground for future generations” says 43-year-old Srinivasan C one of the earliest players here From a team of 30 in the late ’80s over 300 boys aged between 10-22 use the field to practise football now P Dilip Kumar who works as a production editor moonlights as their coach “More and more players take to the sport because of the popularity of leagues like Chennaiyin FC Viva Chennai FC Chennai City FC and others Smart phones and internet access also helps them watch and learn techniques of international players” says Dilip In the ’80s hardly anyone in this slum locality had a graduate degree Today hardly anyone doesn’t In the early ’90s two footballers lost an employment opportunity in Central Excise because they lacked the necessary qualifications This sharpened the spotlight on education “These boys need some exposure to keep them away from drugs drinks and trouble They channel the energy the sport requires into their studies” says Govindammal Loganathan Her 23-year-old son Sai Ram the first person in her family to earn a graduate degree represented the country in Scotland for Slum Soccer an NGO that works with underprivileged communities through the sport It invited attention and won recognition for young Sai So now he uses a part of his salary — Sai works as a coach at Slum Soccer — to pay it forward and buys kits and boots for younger kids who show promise “A lot of children here ask for football boots instead of clothes during festivals” chuckles Govindammal The community hosts close to 15 tournaments each year to test their skills and meet players from neighbouring communities “We also hope it will bring the area visibility and eventually investment and development” says 23-year-old Parthiban Parthasarathy who also works as a coach with Slum Soccer Since the ground is seen as a means to a better life it is still fiercely protected “During the 2015 floods the corporation tried to dump broken branches and debris here but the locality came together to protest it When it comes to football we put aside all difference of opinion and stand together” says Parthiban Practise sessions in Pallakumanagar The boys from Basin Bridge The angry boys of Basin Bridge For the sportsmen of Basin Bridge one part of a cremation ground serves as a community field While football forges a network amongst players from neighbouring localities communal clashes family feuds and competitiveness also allows anger and jealousy to simmer “Earlier there was no match without a fight” recollects M Kavimani Nilavan who works as a coach for Oasis’ football program “Lots of kids have anger issues and are very disrespectful in these localities” says Mathew Nathaniel head of Oasis Chennai As part of the football programme they have team building activities and counselling on the importance of disciple hygiene and respect “Eventually we see changes even in the way they carry themselves and the language they use” says Mathew Like in the case of Joel Joshua who failed his Class 12 exams but was encouraged to “stay with the sport and guide other boys from the community” So in 2016 he and his team mates — Bhoosan R and Aravind — pooled in resources to start Viyyani Sports Academy which currently coaches 70 young boys who show promise but lack the means to be trained formally (L) At Pallakumanagar; (R) The footballers from Vysarpadi Now Joel who works as a coach at an elite football club applies all that he learns there to train the boys in Basin Bridge He also uses his network to find tournaments for the boys so they can get their foot in the door with bigger clubs and private organisations “We also take them to league matches where other coaches can buy them for division teams” says Joel All this opens new opportunities for players Many kids don’t want where they come from to dictate how far they can go But their social realities often clip their fledgling wings “There’s a lot of politics in the sporting world and lots of bias against these boys because they come from slum communities” says Mathew Their inability to afford necessary nutrition attire and keep up with training techniques also affects their chances “It frustrates the boys and discourages them not just in football but in pursuing other career paths as well” Kavimani gives the example of a 24-year-old who played the game since he was 10 but gave it up recently to take to pretty crimes for easy money: “Once he started using drugs it was very difficult to reason with him He just said: ‘this is how my life is gonna be now’” “Our only weapon is football” says Joel “We are not able to reach out to those in our area who don’t play the game But we’ve seen that if one boy changes many change looking at him That’s what we strive to do” Kochi: After being on the run for more than two weeks the prime suspect in the brutal murder of an SFI member in a Kerala college has finally been nabbed police said on Wednesday Mohammed Ali was nabbed from the Kerala-Karnataka border on Tuesday and was being interrogated a police officer said Representational image PTI According to the police Ali was involved in the stabbing of 19-year-old Abhimanyu when the Students’ Federation of India and the Campus Front of India groups clashed late on 2 July over graffiti space on the walls of the Maharajas College Both Abhimanyu and Ali the Alappuzha district president of Campus Front of India and its unit secretary studied at Maharajas College Soon after the 2 July incident Ali along with his parents had gone missing from their home in Alappuzha The police had earlier pointed out that there were 15 people who were directly involved in the murder and had arrested four Another six who were arrested had helped the main culprits Trouble had started after both groups wanted to put up their wall graffitis ahead of the commencement of the new academic year The scuffle led to one death while another student was injured Gov Doug Burgum accepted Schuler’s resignation after Schuler sent a staffwide email and attachment Monday morning expressing his personal thoughts on US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process — a message Burgum described as "unacceptable"In the later email from Monday — with the subject line "Tomorrow is another day" — Schuler said he didn’t feel the initial email was offensive He did send an apology email to commerce department staff and later met with staff to apologize and thank them according to state Department of Commerce spokesman Jesse Bradley"Those of you who know me know I am aggressive and speak my mind Never a politician and never will be" Schuler wrote to foundation members "I sent out an email to the staff this morning I didn’t feel was offensive you judge In hind sight it was a mistake I work for Governor Burgum and bringing controversy to his administration is not the correct thing to do"Schuler added that he "still believe(s) in the Governors vision" and his department "made good strides in many fronts" He also urged foundation members to continue to support the commerce department’s intermodal and intellectual property programsSchuler also said he will "cut back from 60 hours a week to 30 and will help in family businesses" as well as see his grandchildren more oftenBradley said that as of 9:50 am Tuesday Schuler no longer has access to his state government email accountThe state Department of Commerce has a policy governing use of electronic communication devices including email which are "not to be used for political or personal commercial purposes" as well as standards of conduct that prohibit "offensive" material A policy violation can include terminationIn a statement from the governor’s office Schuler apologized for sending to commerce staff his "personal thoughts and opinions" regarding "such a sensitive topic"Mark Jendrysik professor of political science and public administration at the University of North Dakota said there’s likely more to the story of Schuler’s resignation than one email"Perhaps there’s another reason perhaps the governor was dissatisfied with his work" Jendrysik said "You’re not supposed to use state communications for personal political statements so that’s probably sufficient but I imagine there’s more behind this than just this one thing" The governor’s spokesman Mike Nowatzki said Burgum didn’t ask for Schuler’s resignation: "He offered his resignation and the governor accepted it"Burgum appointed Schuler’s deputy Shawn Kessel as interim commerce commissioner until the position is permanently filled Kessel began as deputy commissioner in June after years as Dickinson’s city administratorNowatzki said Schuler’s job will be posted with applications to be reviewed There is not yet a timeline for filling the position Schuler’s annual salary was $160000Schuler was to participate in a visit to Hillsboro today as part of the governor’s Main Street Initiative Nowatzki said the visit proceeded as plannedClarkson who served as deputy assistant secretary for policy and economic development ran a program that guarantees loans for tribal businesses When Zinke appointed Clarkson on June 11 he said in a statement that his "expertise in the areas of law finance and economic development are a valuable asset as we work together with tribes to increase economic opportunity and promote self-determination throughout Indian Country"But before joining the Trump administration Clarkson served as a consultant for tribes that received loans under the program including a $225 million loan for the Lower Sioux Brule tribe that helped finance the purchase of a brokerage firm that eventually went under As a result the Interior Department is now being sued over its refusal to guarantee the remaining $20 million balance on the loanThe IG report which was released Nov 9 found that BIA’s Division of Capital Investment (DCI) which falls under its Office of Indian Energy and Economic Investment (IEED) "did not have adequate controls in place and managed the [loan program] with limited oversight from IEED creating unnecessary risk for an already risky program"While the probe did not specifically name Clarkson it listed the liability incurred from the loan he worked on as one for which taxpayers could end up shouldering the burden"Between 2010 and 2016 DCI paid approximately $124 million in claims resulting from defaults and received an additional claim for approximately $20 million which had not been paid at the time of our review" states the report which notes that as of Sept 30 2016 the program was "potentially liable" for $606 million in loan guarantees" Should any of the borrowers default on these loans it is ultimately taxpayers who would carry out the burden of bailing out the lenders since their obligations are guaranteed by the US government"The IG noted that on at least two occasions the acting DCI chief approved loan guarantee applications over the objections of the program’s credit committee without providing any written justification for the move In one case involving a $16 million loan guarantee for a film project the chief "approved the application without formally documenting his rationale for disregarding the recommendation" of the credit panel Clarkson could not be reached for comment Tuesday At the time of his appointment which did not require Senate confirmation he said that he would "bring new ideas and methods to Indian Affairs for tribal business and energy development I am excited to help tribal nations and tribal entrepreneurs create the conditions under which they can build expand and sustain their economies"In an email Interior press secretary Heather Swift said of his resignation "the department cannot comment on personnel matters"AuthorInformation:Juliet
