Life imprisonment for man who created hijack scare on Jet plane

first_imgAhmedabad: A special NIA court here Tuesday awarded life imprisonment to a Mumbai-based businessman and imposed a fine of Rs 5 crore on him for leaving a hijack threat note on a Jet Airways plane in October 2017. The court of special NIA judge K M Dave said the fine amount submitted by the convict, businessman Birju Salla, will be distributed among the crew members and passengers on board the affected plane. Salla was accused of creating a hijack scare by planting a threat note written in English and Urdu in the tissue paper box of the aircraft’s toilet on October 30.

The NIA had in January last year filed a charge sheet against him under sections 3(1), 3(2)(a) and 4(b) of the Anti-Hijacking Act, 2016. The NIA had said Salla prepared a “threat note” in both English and Urdu language and placed it “intentionally” in the tissue paper box of the toilet near the business class of the Mumbai-Delhi Jet Airways flight no.9W339 on October 30, thereby jeopardizing the safety of passengers and crew on board.

He confessed to the crime and told investigators that he had done it in the hope that it would force Jet Airways to close its Delhi operation and his girlfriend, who worked in the airline’s Delhi office, would come back to Mumbai. The note asked the plane to be flown into Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir. The note ended with the words, Allah is Great.last_img read more

BC RCMPs April Fools joke pounced on by cats purrfect resume

first_imgVANCOUVER — When the British Columbia and Yukon division of the RCMP issued an April Fools’ Day announcement seeking a few good cats, it probably didn’t expect any applicants.But the intervening weeks have been just long enough for at least one to send in a kitty curriculum vitae.RCMP say in an online post that a resume has been received from Penny Cirque, a cat once destined for an acrobatic career with Cirque du Soleil but now interested in law — or claw — enforcement.Her resume letter notes she is small and cuddly but has the tough exterior necessary for police work.Unfortunately, the RCMP says the application came without any contact information.The original job posting for the new cat services unit suggested applicants be aloof, pensive, even moody and “capable of working for almost 15 minutes a day before getting bored.”The RCMP doesn’t say if Penny Cirque’s application will survive the vetting process.“The bad guys could easily be taken in by my charm and I am sure they would tell me all the bad things they have done, especially if I offered to let them stroke me when they had confessed and made amends,” the letter says.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Liberals reject most Tory amendments to environmental assessment bill

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal government is rejecting most of the amendments proposed by Conservative senators to Bill C-69.A senior government official speaking on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter, said after going through every amendment — there were 187 by one count ­— the government has concluded most of the proposals by Conservative senators were designed to weaken the bill.“The vast majority of conservative proposals are simply unacceptable,” he said.About 90 per cent of the Conservative amendments will not be agreed to, he said, including allowing the new Impact Assessment Agency flexibility to decide whether to take into account a project’s effect on Indigenous rights or climate change.The government is also rejecting amendments that would make it harder to challenge a project approval in court and limit who can participate in review hearings.The official said the government is OK with the Impact Assessment Agency having discretion to decide how the public can meaningfully participate, but legislating away people’s right to be heard was “just flat out not acceptable.”Many of those amendments were heavily criticized by environment groups that said C-69 provided some balance between protecting the environment and economic growth. They blamed the Conservatives for wanting to give full reign to the oil and gas sector to run roughshod over the environment.Environment Minister Catherine McKenna served notice late Tuesday of her intention to table the government’s motion responding to the Senate amendments in the House of Commons after question period Wednesday.Conservative senators, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers and five conservative premiers have all said that every single amendment has to be accepted or the bill will be the death knell for Canada’s oil and gas sector.The premiers this week warned Trudeau he was threatening national unity if he didn’t accept all the changes. In turn, he  accused them of irresponsibly playing games with national unity simply because they weren’t getting their way.The legislation overhauls how major national resource and transportation projects, such as pipelines, mines and interprovincial highways, are assessed for their impact on the environment, the economy, and the health and social well-being of Canadians.It fulfills a Liberal election promise to replace a 2012 process brought in by the former Conservative government. That process, used to review both the Northern Gateway pipeline and the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, ended up with a federal court overturning the cabinet approval because the review process didn’t adequately consider environmental effects and Indigenous rights.There are many amendments, mostly made by independent senators who were appointed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau since 2016, the government will accept. Those include changes to reduce the discretion of the minister of the environment to interfere in a review process.The government initially wrote the bill so that the minister would be able to intervene to lift time constraints placed on the review process, to appoint the panellists who will review major projects, and, in some cases, to force a proposed project to be assessed under the act even if it isn’t among the list of the types of projects to which the bill is supposed to apply.The changes transfer those authorities from the minister to the head of the new Impact Assessment Agency.Changes that improve the role regional assessments can play to look at proposals will be accepted as the government wants to reduce duplication of reviews at provincial and federal levels. Also, changes that give more clarity to how a new planning and design phase will work are also acceptable to the government.The planning phase is meant to force project proponents to put their cards on the table early so any potential concerns from affected communities can be raised immediately.Mia Rabson, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Food price index starts 2016 dropping to nearly 7year low – UN

FAO’s Food Price Index is a trade-weighted index tracking international market prices for five key commodity groups: major cereals, vegetable oils, dairy, meat and sugar. It averaged 150.4 points in January, down 16 per cent from a year earlier and registering its lowest level since April 2009.The main factors underlying the lingering decline in basic food commodity prices are the generally ample agricultural supply conditions, a slowing global economy, and the strengthening of the United States dollar, the UN agency noted in a news article.This month, FAO also raised its forecast for worldwide cereal stocks in 2016, as a result of lowering its projected consumption and raising 2015 production prospects.The FAO Sugar Price Index fell 4.1 per cent from December, its first drop in four months, as crop conditions improved in Brazil, by far the world’s leading sugar producer and exporter. The Dairy Price Index dropped by 3.0 per cent on the back of large supplies, in both the European Union (EU) and New Zealand, and torpid world import demand.FAO’s Cereal Price Index declined 1.7 per cent (to 149.1 points) amid ample global supplies and increased competition for export markets, especially for wheat and maize, as well as a strong US dollar.The Vegetable Oil Price Index dropped 1.7 per cent, mainly because of a decline in soy oil prices reflecting expectations of ample global soybean supplies.Finally, the Meat Price Index moved 1.1 per cent lower than its revised December value, with prices of all meat categories falling, except pig meat, which was sustained by the opening of private storage aid in the EU.Meanwhile, weather patterns associated with El Niño are sending mixed signals about the early prospects for cereal crops in 2016, especially in the Southern Hemisphere, according to FAO’s Cereal Supply and Demand Brief, also released today.It notes that 2016 crop prospects have been “severely weakened” in Southern Africa, and a 25 per cent cut in wheat production in South Africa now appears likely. Conditions for the crop are generally favourable in the Russian Federation and the EU, but winter plantings declined in the United States and Ukraine. The area under wheat is also expected to be cut in India, following a poor monsoon and below average rains since October.The 2016 outlook for rice along and south of the Equator is “dim” due, at times, to insufficient water and, at others, to excessive rains.As for the 2015 season, FAO modestly raised its forecast for world cereal production to 2,531 million tonnes, up slightly from that released in December.Wheat output in Canada and Russia and maize output in China, Canada and Paraguay drove the upward revision. FAO also slightly raised its expectation regarding 2015 world rice production, mostly on account of higher forecasts for China, Viet Nam and the United States. At the same time, FAO lowered its forecast for world cereal utilization in the 2015/16 season to 2,527 million tonnes, which remains 0.8 per cent above that of the previous year. This reflects a 2.0 per cent increase for wheat, largely on account of higher livestock feed use in developed countries and a 0.3 per cent increase in maize. World rice utilization is projected to expand by 1.1 per cent, keeping world per-capita consumption stable.As a result of the upgraded production and downgraded consumption forecasts, world cereal stocks are set to end the 2016 seasons at 642 million tonnes, higher than they began. That level implies a steady and comfortable global cereal stock-to-use ratio of around 25 per cent. However, the inventory build-up varies geographically and depending on the crop.Notable increases in wheat inventories are forecast for the US, EU and China whereas some reductions are likely in Canada, India and Iran. On the other hand, world rice stocks would need to be drawn down to bridge the expected gap between world production and consumption, with much of the release likely to concern India and Thailand, the two leading rice exporters. read more

Black Friday the new king of retail but allure of Boxing Day is

Boxing Day has long been a massive money-maker for retailers, with slashed prices enticing consumers into both in-store and online shopping. But one expert warns that Boxing Day sales could take a hit this year with the increase of Black Friday sales that have expanded into several days of deals.Eric Dolansky, Associate Professor of Marketing at Brock’s Goodman School of Business, teaches courses on marketing communications and pricing strategy and researches consumer estimations of value.Eric Dolansky“I don’t think Boxing Day is as important as it once was, partially because of the expansion of Black Friday in Canada, which was not really established until a few years ago,” says Dolansky.“While it’s likely that consumers are spending more overall between the two days, having two major sales days within a month of one another will make each less successful as households only have so much money to spend.”But we can still expect to see crowds of Boxing Day bargain hunters as part of an annual tradition.“It’s a time when families are together,” says Dolansky. “A holiday has just occurred and now they can go out and shop together. There is the same sense of having a story behind your purchase, such as, ‘I lined up at 4 a.m.,’ or, ‘I tried to get on the website for an hour before successfully getting through.’”Another factor could be nostalgia or history.“Boxing Day is just something that some families always do, often going to the same stores year after year,” he says. read more

Scottish wildcat nicknamed the beast may be largest ever seen

first_imgPaul O’Donoghue said he had never seen anything like itCredit:Wildcat Haven An “enormous” wildcat that could be the largest specimen recorded anywhere in the world has been caught on camera in Aberdeenshire.It was recorded by a camera trap in Clashindarroch Forest and is estimated to measure 4ft from nose to tail, making it around one foot larger than an average Scottish wildcat.The footage was caught as part of a conservation project run by Wildcat Haven, which puts out food to attract animals to hidden camera sites. The large predator has since been nicknamed the “Clashindarroch Beast”.Kev Bell, a field worker for the organisation, said: “I’ve been fortunate to get footage of quite a few of these ghost cats; there’s about 10 to 15 of them here in the Clashindarroch. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I first saw this cat, he is enormous, a magnificent animal.””The cameras give us amazing insight to this priceless group of wildcats which have somehow survived here and avoided hybridisation. wildcat “Some people say that the wildcat doesn’t exist anymore but we know different and wildcats like ‘The Beast’ prove it.”Steve Sleigh, another fieldworker with Wildcat Haven, added: “These cats are a vital part of Scotland’s wild nature and ecology, and they must be protected wherever they live; they are one of the rarest animals in the world.” wild cat The project involves the neutering of all feral and domestic cats across more than 1,000 square miles of the Highlands to prevent inter-breeding with wildcats. Fears have been expressed previously that there may be no genetically pure wildcats left in Scotland but Dr Paul O’Donoghue, chief scientific adviser on the project, said they believe there is a population of around 13 pure wildcats in the area.He said the large cat caught on camera was in excellent condition and he had never seen anything approaching its size in the past.The organisation is also monitoring wildcat populations in Caithness and Lochaber.

Sevenyearold boy threatened to stab pregnant teacher in stomach  as union warns

Scott McGimpsey, on the executive in Scotland, added: “We have seen pupils say or do pretty much whatever they want.”Emma Thomas, county secretary in Huntingdonshire, told the conference of a case where a pupil pushed a member of staff “with enough force that his arm went through a double glazed window”.She said that violence is “getting out of control, not because of the way the students are but because way back somebody hasn’t dealt with the way they behaved.” The number of “refusal to teach” ballots has doubled in the past five years, from four in 2013 to eight in 2017 Alfredo Gualda, a teacher from Doncaster, said that families need to be held accountable for their children’s behaviour, explaining: “If your child is constantly disruptive, if they are violent, if they are abusive, I think it’s about time that schools and teachers question the parenting of those children. Because it does not happen”.Teachers passed a motion that criticised some headteachers’  “unacceptable” attitude that violence is “part of the job” for teachers and even blame them for misbehaving pupils.The motion called on the union to defend them from threats of violence “through all legitimate means, up to and including industrial action” when their health, safety and welfare is at risk.Figures released by NASUWT earlier this year revealed that school staff are increasingly refusing to teach unruly children,  amid incidents of violence and sexual assault.

A seven-year-old boy threatened to stab a pregnant teacher in the stomach over a literacy lesson, it emerges as a union warns of a rise in children who do not respond to any form of punishment.Pupil indiscipline and violence is a “significant and worsening problem” in schools, according to the National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT).Addressing the delegates at the union’s annual conference in Belfast, David Baxter, a member of the union’s executive in Northern Ireland, said teachers need to find a way to deal with “Teflon kids – the ones that no sanction seems to stick to”.John Devlin, another member from Northern Ireland, described some of the shocking examples of aggressive and violent threats teachers have been subjected to. One pregnant teacher was told by a seven-year-old boy who did not want to do literacy “I’m going to stab you in your pregnant belly”, he said.Meanwhile, another teacher  was left with a bleeding neck from a pupil attack and a third was punched in the face by a ten-year-old boy.Russ Walters, the union’s honorary treasurer, said: “We cannot continue to put up with this lack of dignity, this absolute prostitution of our professionalism.” The number of “refusal to teach” ballots has doubled in the past five years, from four in 2013 to eight in 2017.Under a “refusal to teach” ballot, staff in a particular school can take industrial action as a last resort, to protest against the behaviour of a particular pupil. They can also take action short of a strike, which could involve refusing to cover lessons for colleagues or take on voluntary duties.Chris Keates, general secretary of NASUWT, has previously said that bad behaviour in classrooms is being fuelled by fashionable “restorative justice” schemes.Some schools are interpreting restorative justice as merely having a conversation with a pupil about the incident, without any sanctions being applied, she said.Poor implementation of the policy can lead to teachers becoming “disempowered” and discipline getting worse.

(Apollo) as the vendor to implement its digital pathology informatics network. After conducting extensive research to identify a pathology PACS solution to meet their operational needs, Henry Ford Health System selected Apollo’s PathPACS as the product upon which they will implement the institution’s anatomic and clinical pathology, and outreach vision. The Apollo PathPACS product design is ideally suited to support our vision for expanding the use of digital imaging in the daily practice of surgical pathology and for the expedient delivery of pathology information to organizations outside the institution. It will be implemented to streamline the pathology imaging management process, address patient safety requirements, and optimize pathology case workflow throughout HFHS.A key element critical in the decision to select PathPACS is the product’s ability to provide digital imaging management for HFHS pathology laboratories, integrating with their Sunquest Anatomic Pathology Information System (CoPathPlus) as well as the Sunquest Clinical Laboratory Information System. PathPACS has a reportedly intuitive user environment that will integrate within the existing HFHS IT infrastructure thus minimizing the time required for bringing on-line the pathology image management capability. This will allow HFHS to apply LEAN principles to image acquisition and management following the tenants of the Henry Ford Production System.For more information: www.apollopacs.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more Feature | Information Technology | June 27, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Smart Algorithm Extracts Data from Radiology Reports Radiology reports may contain information essential to figuring out a patient’s condition. read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more News | PACS | June 26, 2019 Mini-PACS Solution for Image Management and Workflow Optimization ImageGrid Mini is a feature-rich, reliable and cost-effective image management and workflow optimization solution, pr read more News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Konica Minolta Healthcare Partners With DiA Imaging Analysis for AI-based Cardiac Ultrasound Analysis DiA Imaging Analysis has partnered with Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. to expand analysis capabilities of… read more News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more last_img read more

Gradle 49 released

first_imgTeam Gradle has released a new version of their tool and that’s Gradle 4.9. Gradle is a build tool for build automation with multi-language development. It offers excellent flexibility to the complete development lifecycle. As per the team, one of the quickest ways to update one’s build to use the new version is by updating the build wrapper properties as follows: ./gradlew wrapper –gradle-version=4.9 However, the standalone downloads are available at gradle.org/install What’s new in the Gradle 4.9 Command line arguments are now supported by JavaExec One can now pass command line arguments to JavaExec using –args. This means if one wants to launch their application using the command line arguments foo –bar, hardcoding it into the build script is not required. One just has to simply run gradle run –args ‘foo –bar. An improved dependency insight report This version features an improved dependency insight report including build scans.  The report helps in easy diagnosis of dependency management problems, locally. Some improvements in this report include: All participants of conflict resolution are shown All custom reasons for a component selection are shown Modules rejected by a rule are displayed Modules which didn’t match the version selector but were considered in the selection are shown This report also solves the readability resolution failures by restricting the report to one path with each dependency. Native ecosystem continues The Gradle Native project stays steady in order to improve and evolve the native ecosystem support for Gradle. Checkout builds are now fast and clean This version now stores more states in the Gradle user home instead of the project directory. This results in clean and faster checkout builds on CI as long as the user home is preserved. Java and Groovy compilers are now leak-proof file descriptors By default, the Java and Groovy compilers both leak file descriptors during the run in-process. This, in turn, can lead to “cannot delete file” exceptions on Windows and “too many open file descriptors” on Unix. In the Gradle 4.9, these leaks have been fixed. Users who had switched to forking mode because of this problem, can now safely switch back to in-process compilation. Experimental new task API Gradle 4.9 includes a new task API which allows builds to avoid the cost of creating and configuring tasks for the ones that will never be executed. By upgrading to this new API, one can experience slightly faster configuration times. The benefits will keep improving as more plugins adopt this API. Note that this API is in incubation and may change before Gradle 5.0. The promoted features are now stable This version includes some promoted features which were in incubation during the previous release. The promoted features which include a stable dependency insight report and the tooling API types and methods are now supported and stable. These two features are also subject to backward compatibility. Potential breaking changes in Gradle 4.9 EclipseProject tasks defined for gradle eclipse are allowed to run in Buildship. Two tasks from the EclipseProject, namely the EclipseClasspath and EclipseProject are now executed by the gradle.

The new tool streamlines the appraisal appointments, allowing lenders and AMCs that are leveraging eTrac to easily set pre-determined appraisal dates, apply specific parameters, and broadcast appraiser communications. The eTrac Pre-Scheduler empowers users with the ability to easily select multiple appraisal appointment dates per appraisal order, automatically search for applicable appraisers that are available to complete the order, and then present potential assignments to eligible appraisers along with the order and specified dates. The appraiser can then quickly accept the order by agreeing to one of the required dates, which can conveniently be done from their cell phone via email and/or text message. The end result is that the entire process of coordinating and completing appraisals becomes quicker, easier, and more efficient. In addition, Pre-Scheduler flexes with unique business processes or special requests from borrowers and clients, as users have the ability to define what appraisers must agree to before accepting orders._______________________________________________________________________Planet Home Lending, LLC, a privately held mortgage lender and servicer headquartered in Connecticut, has announced that Dierk Hohman has joined the company as EVP, Chief General Counsel, and Enterprise Risk Officer.
