Five Odisha migrants rescued from Andhra Pradesh brick kiln

first_imgFive migrant labourers from Odisha’s Sundargarh district returned to their village on Saturday after Andhra Pradesh police rescued them from confinement in a brick kiln in Vizianagaram.Odisha had requested Andhra Pradesh government to help rescue five migrant workers who were reportedly kept hostage by a brick kiln operator in Vizianagaram. Concerns were raised over the fate of the workers as another five workers, who had earlier escaped from the brick kiln, narrated the tale of how they were subjected to extreme torture.The Sundargarh district labour office on Saturday recorded statement of workers in presence of executive magistrate. Five workers including three female reached Burta village under Hemgiri block of Sundargarh. They were rescued on Friday evening.“The allegation of finger of a worker being chopped off was found to be untrue. The brick kiln owner had spread rumour of cutting of finger in order to get back the wage paid to these workers. A case has been registered against the Bargarh-based labour contractor who had hired migrant labourers without possessing a valid license,” said Pranab Kumar Patra, Sundargarh district labour officer.Ten villagers from Burta were hired by the labour contractor in September this year. At the time of recruitment, these workers were promised of a payment of Rs. 700 per making of 1000 bricks in Andhra Pradesh. Ten members of three families agreed and went to Vizianagaram. Two of the three families were given Rs. 60,000 as an advance while one family got Rs. 10000.The migrant labourers had left their village on October 25 by train to Vizianagaram. There, they had worked up to December 12 and made 150000 bricks. When workers demanded outstanding wage, the owner forced them to work in the kiln. Even acid was thrown on face of one Jayadev Chandania. Now, he is undergoing treatment.Mr. Patra said the Andhra Pradesh government is expected to initiate criminal proceedings against the brick kiln owner in Vizianagaram.last_img read more

Kohli is worlds best batsman: Lawson

first_imgMumbai, May 28 (PTI) Former Australia pacer Geoff Lawson has heaped praise on in-form Indias Test captain Virat Kohli, saying the star batsman is “arguably the number one batsman in the world”. “Kohli at the moment, is arguably the number one batsman in the world. He is in the form of his life. I was impressed with him when I saw him on the first tour to Australia (in 2011-12),” Lawson told reporters here today. “He was (among) the few Indian batsmen who took on the challenge of playing on the bouncy Australian wickets,” said the former Australia fast bowler, who is on a short coaching sting at the Payyade Sports Club in suburban Kandivili. Lawson, who took 180 wickets in 46 Tests and 88 in 79 ODIs in a career spanning nine years between 1980 and 1989, was referring to Kohli topping the batting averages with 300 runs in the disastrous 0-4 whitewash under Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the 2011-12 season. “You can see in his face, he took it on as a personal challenge to be good on those pitches. While the other batsmen, including (Sachin) Tendulkar, were sort of failing around him, Kohli really relished something different. For him it is not good just playing in India, you need to (be) good all over the world,” Lawson added. Kohli, who has been in tremendous form in the T20 format of the game that includes the ongoing IPL, notched the only century by an Indian in the series – in the Adelaide Test. According to Lawson, since that first visit Down Under Kohli has got better and better. “I wouldnt like to be bowling to him in in the IPL. It is difficult to get him out and if you do so, you have to get out Ab de Villiers and Shane Watson (who both bat in the top order for RCB) as well,” quipped Lawson. Mumbai pacer Shardul Thakur, who has been picked for Indias upcoming four-Test series in the West Indies, was felicitated by Lawson in the presence of Mumbai Cricket Associations joint secretary, P V Shetty.

Manchester United F.C. to swipe right for Tinder?

first_imgIf reports are to be believed, Manchester United are all set to have a new sponsor on their shirt sleeves.According to reports, Tinder will team up with the football giants for a spot on the left sleeve of their shirts.This comes after the Football Association gave the go-ahead to a sponsor on the left sleeve of the team’s jersey replacing the Premier League logo that used to be there on both the sleeves earlier.Reports suggested that the online dating site is set to offer around 12 million pounds a year for a place on United’s sleeves.However, a Tinder spoksperson said that even though they’re in talks with the 13-time Premier League champions, the terms are wrong and not finalised yet.”We are in talks with Manchester United to explore potential partnership opportunities. The associated terms and costs have been inaccurately reported, and nothing has yet been finalized. We are excited to see what we can do together.”Tinder has around 50 million users and almost 1 billion swipes per day are recorded. The site is apparently looking for a more mainstream image and a global following. Hence, the tie up with one of the most followed franchises in the world of sports.Nine clubs, including Chelsea and Manchester City, have signed sleeve deals but none of the deals amount anywhere near the  reported 12 million pounds a year that Tinder are said to be offering.Tinder also has an agreement with Serie A side Napoli.This could be effectively United’s fourth signing of the summer after acquiring the services of Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic till now.advertisementThe Red Devils will begin their 2017/18 campaign on August 8 when they take on the UEFA Champions League winners in the Super Cup, which is going to be followed by the first Premier League game on August 13 at Old Trafford against West Ham.last_img read more

First Sensor: pressure sensors now up to 10 bar and with side pressure connections

first_img Continue Reading Previous NASA’s InSight probe makes successful landingNext IAR expands support for Arm DesignStart with high performance tools for Arm Cortex-A5 First Sensor extends its platform of piezoresistive differential pressure sensors of the HTD series from 1 mbar with measuring ranges of up to 10 bar. In addition to the very small and flat manifold housing with a footprint of 8 x 13 mm, which is ideal for space-saving manifold mounting, the HTD series now offers an SMD housing with side pressure connections. The new housing features barbed pressure ports for secure tube connection, even for higher pressures.A major application of the HTD sensors is differential pressure measurement across a flow-restrictive element (e.g. orifice or laminar flow element) to determine volumetric flow. The differential pressure sensor measures in a bypass to the main flow channel. Typical examples can be found in medical technology (ventilators, anesthesia machines, CPAP, spirometers, oxygen concentrators), HVAC (volumetric flow controllers, filter monitoring, burner control), instrumentation and industrial controls.The HTD differential pressure sensors feature a SPI interface with 15 bit resolution and an analog output signal. With their 3 or 5 V supply and low power consumption, the HTD miniature pressure sensors are ideal for battery-powered applications in mobile and portable devices. For pick-and-place machines in high-volume production, the HTD sensors can optionally be supplied on tape and reel. The sensors are temperature compensated from 0 to 70 °C and provide a temperature reading in addition to the pressure value. Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components last_img read more

US Open: Roger Federer loses to John Millman in last 16, Djokovic in quarters

first_imgRoger Federer crashed out of the US Open after losing his Round of 16 match against world No.55 John Millman of Australia 6-3, 5-7, 6-7(7), 6-7(3) at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York on Tuesday.It was a shocking night for the Federer faithful and almost the entire New York crowd who backed Federer to the hilt till the very last moment of the match that lasted for three hours and 34 minutes. Such was the frailty of Federer’s mind on the night that he asked for some quiet from the crowd, something one rarely sees Federer do.The loss against Millman was Federer’s first against a player outside the world’s top 50 at the US Open and for Millman, this was the biggest win of his career. The Australian showed steely resolve to hold off Federer initially and then went completely on top to down Federer.It will no more be a Federer-Djokovic showdown in the quater-final in New York and instead, John Millman will face the 13-time Grand Slam champion.Absolutely stunning upset as @johnhmillman defeats Federer 3-6, 7-5, 7-6, 7-6 under the lights in Arthur Ashe Stadium!Millman’s first top ten victory lands him a spot in the QF against Djokovic…#USOpen pic.twitter.com/4DPEOJpJw7US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 4, 2018Federer was on top of the game when he took the court against Millman, breaking the Australian right at the start and then holding all his service games to take the first set 6-3.READ – US Open: Sharapova knocked out, Japan’s Osaka makes first Grand Slam quartersadvertisementEarly on in the second set too, Federer broke Millman but the Arthur Ashe Stadium saw a sudden shift in momentum as Millman broke Federer twice at the end of the set to take it 7-5.Federer was serving for the second set but he not only lost that service game, he lost the next to eventually let Millman claw his way back into the match.Both the third and the fourth sets went into tiebreak. The fourth set also saw Federer breaking Millman once but immediately after he was broken back to let go of the advantage.The fourth set tie-break was a gist of the entire match where Federer made several unforced errors to lose the tiebreak 7-3 and the match.Current mood…#USOpen pic.twitter.com/NFdnrQPt9TUS Open Tennis (@usopen) September 4, 2018On the whole, Federer made 76 unforced errors to just 28 from Millman. Double faults was another of Federer’s doom on the night as he made 10 double faults compared to just a single from Millman.DJOKOVIC BEATS HEAT AND SOUSA TO REACH QUARTERSNovak Djokovic sweated his way to a 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 fourth round win over Portugal’s Joao Sousa as the heat returned to the US Open on Monday.Clean sheet for @DjokerNole as he defeats J.

You know, I couldn’t think too much between the points. It’s not easy to focus (on) every point, you know. You lose some concentration,” he said.Kohlschreiber thought the heat — as well as Nishikori’s slick performance — made the match particularly challenging.”He pushed, especially in my weaknesses, pretty good, you know, returning my second serve very aggressively, very deep,” Kohlschreiber told reporters. “He didn’t make many mistakes. He pushed me around. He was too much in control of the game.”Nishikori next faces either seventh-seeded Croat Marin Cilic, which would be a rematch of the 2014 final, or Belgian 10th seed David Goffin in the last eight.CILIC TOPPLES GOFFIN TO ENTER QUARTER-FINALSMarin Cilic showed no ill effects from his gruelling, late-night victory two nights ago as the Croatian seventh seed beat David Goffin 7-6(6), 6-2, 6-4 on Monday to reach the US Open quarter-finals.7-6, 6-2, 6-4@cilic_marin convincingly defeats Goffin to set up a a rematch of the 2014 final against Kei Nishikori!#USOpen pic.twitter.com/W6kKaO4V2tUS Open Tennis (@usopen) September 3, 2018Former champion Cilic, who rallied back from a two-set deficit to clinch a four-hour, third round match that ended after 2:00 a.m. local time, made a sluggish start against the 10th-seeded Goffin but had enough gas in the tank to advance.Goffin, who was bidding to become the first Belgian man to reach the US Open quarter-finals, enjoyed a nice start with a break of serve and grabbed a 5-3 edge before moving within two points of taking the first set.But Cilic suddenly rose to the occasion and deployed his ballistic forehand to get back on serve at 5-5 before securing the opener after an error-filled tiebreak by both players.From there, the Australian Open runnerup settled into a groove and pulled away from Goffin, who was limited by a sore shoulder and unable to take advantage of an uneven serving display from Cilic.advertisement”I started a little bit slower and he was playing good in the beginning and when he was serving in the first set at 5-4 it was a crucial break for me to get back in the game,” said Cilic, who made just 46 percent of his first serves.”After the first set it felt like he slowed down his first serve and at the end he told he’s got some problems with his shoulder so it was a little but unfortunate for him and he was not playing the best the last two sets but I kept my rhythm and played well.”Cilic broke Goffin in the fifth game of the third set to pull ahead and then held serve the rest of the way before sealing the deal on his third match point with a crosscourt forehand.The win puts Cilic into the quarter-finals of the year’s final Grand Slam for the fifth time.Next up for Cilic is a 2014 US Open final rematch with Japan’s Kei Nishikori.(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more

Toronto owner David Argyle stands down from roles after racism row

first_imgThe Toronto Wolfpack owner, David Argyle, has quit as chairman and chief executive of the Championship club over racist comments he made to a Swinton player. Argyle is the subject of an investigation by the Rugby Football League over comments he made to the Swinton forward Jose Kenga in the immediate aftermath of the Lions’ game against the Wolfpack in Toronto in April. Kenga, who was born in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, revealed on social media that Argyle said to him: “Do they allow black people in Swinton?” before laughing and handing over a drink token. Argyle, who has bankrolled Toronto since they entered the English game in 2017, made a public apology on Thursday when the news came to light and on Saturday issued a open letter in which he says he has “sacked himself”. He wrote: “I was incredibly careless with my words when speaking to Swinton Lions player Jose Kenga after our game at Lamport Stadium on 28th April 2019. I understand the unwitting racist connotations of what I said and the distress caused to Jose. “Jose was gracious to take a video call with me today, I apologised and we discussed the matter in depth. I also fully support Jose’s decision to go on social media. I called Swinton RFLC, which I respect and admire as a club. “If any other member of our Wolfpack family had made that comment I made, on balance, regardless of context and environment, I would have fired them. Therefore that also applies to me, so I am firing myself as chairman and CEO.” Argyle says the club have begun the search to fill his roles and has promised to meet all his financial obligations “so that our objective to deliver the best club rugby in the world in Toronto, UK & France remain”. He added: “The Wolfpack and our new chairman and CEO will remain firmly behind the core values and beliefs that make up the foundation of this organisation. The world is a better place with more rugby balls in kids’ hands, we aspire to create a global centre for rugby excellence in Toronto, we actively promote opportunities for transatlantic trade and we support local family-run businesses in Ontario. “I leave with a heavy heart as I have disgraced rugby and my family, which I love.” Since you’re here… Topics Share on Pinterest … we have a small favour to ask.

HMM in Talks to Join 2M Alliance

first_imgzoom In an effort to survive the current weak demand in the container shipping industry, South Korea’s shipping major Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) has started discussions to join the world’s largest alliance 2M, Danish shipping firm Maersk Line told World Maritime News.“We can confirm that we – 2M – are in discussions with the Korean container shipping line Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) on the possibility of HMM joining the 2M vessel sharing agreement (2M VSA) when their membership of the G6 alliance expires in 2017,” Maersk Line’s COO, Søren Toft, said.“We are positively reviewing the proposition. The inclusion of Hyundai Merchant Marine in 2M would for example provide us with extended coverage and a stronger product in the Transpacific trade,” he added.Toft said that the discussions are still in the early days and therefore declined further comments “before there are more substantial developments in the discussions.”The announcement follows HMM’s agreements with containership owners on 20 percent charter rate cuts and with owners of bulk carriers for 25 percent charter rate reductions, which are expected to come in force over the next three and a half years.The final deal is a compromise solution as the company initially sought a 27 percent rate decrease.HMM’s creditor group earlier agreed on the company’s debt restructuring proposal, as the company faces USD 4.48 billion wall of debt.The 2M alliance comprises Maersk Line, the A.P. Moller-Maersk A/S shipping unit, and Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC).World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Warnings to be Given at Stoney Beach

first_imgWater lovers will be getting warnings from beach patrols about Stoney Beach, an unsupervised area near popular Lawrencetown Beach. Beginning Saturday, July 1, a beach patroller from the Nova Scotia Lifeguard Service will be present daily at Stoney Beach when the tide goes out to discourage swimming and to educate the public on the dangers of the nearby currents. New signs will soon be in place to warn that the unsupervised beach is notorious for its strong currents and that swimmers should go to the main beach area of Lawrencetown Beach Provincial Park. The patrol at low tide will continue daily into the September hurricane season. “We have met and worked with residents in the Stoney Beach area to make changes that will better protect Nova Scotians,” said Barry Barnet, Minister of Health Promotion and Protection. “But the beach remains unsupervised.” Local resident and writer Lesley Choyce, an advocate for improved safety on the unsupervised beach, welcomed the changes. “I’m just thrilled that some attention is being given to a place that’s potentially very dangerous to swimmers,” said Mr. Choyce. “This is certainly a change for the better.”last_img read more

SCOC to hear food recall class action by Mr Sub franchisees against

OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada will hear a case on whether a distributor is responsible for a franchisee’s losses during a food recall.The top court has granted an application for leave to appeal by a class-action lawsuit representing Mr. Submarine Inc. franchisees against Maple Leaf Foods Inc. and Maple Leaf Consumer Foods Inc.The case started after a 2008 recall when Toronto-based Maple Leaf pulled roughly 200 products due to a deadly listeria outbreak caused by contamination at one of its plants.The franchisees say that they were bound by an exclusive supply arrangement to purchase ready-to-eat meats through Maple Leaf from a distributor and dealt with a six- to eight-week product shortages, as well as reputational injury and product losses.The Ontario Court of Appeal ruled in favour of Maple Leaf in April 2018 that the duty to supply a product fit for human consumption is to the customers and not the franchisees.Peter Kryworuk, a lawyer for the franchisees, said he was pleased by the top court’s decision to hear the appeal and that he expected the case will be heard later this year.The counsel listed for Maple Leaf Foods did not immediately responded to a request for comment.

Sony uses movie studio to press advantage in ultrahigh definition TV with

Sony uses movie studio to press advantage in ultra-high definition TV with first 4K content by Ryan Nakashima, The Associated Press Posted Jan 8, 2013 12:24 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Sony Corp. is finally pressing its advantage as a conglomerate that owns both high-tech gadgets and the content that plays on them by being the only electronics maker to offer ultra-HD TVs — and a way to get movies to the new super clear screens.Ultra-high definition TVs, which quadruple the number of pixels of current high definition technology, have been the talk of the International CES gadget show so far. But only Sony has offered a content solution to go with them.With the 84-inch (213-centimetre) ultra-HD set it launched in November, Sony threw in a tablet and computer server that has 10 movies preloaded on the device — for $25,000. The movies came from the library of Sony Pictures or its subsidiary Columbia Pictures, like “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “The Karate Kid.”On Monday, Sony unveiled 55-inch (140-centimetre) and 65-inch (165.-centimetre) ultra-HD sets that will sell this spring for an undisclosed price believed to be below $10,000. The Japanese electronics maker said it would launch a download service this summer in the U.S. so buyers of the smaller sets would have access to movies in the clearer format.For now, it will offer the same 10 movies from its library for download.After unveiling the service, Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai told reporters that the ultra-HD movies could be made available to other makers like Samsung or LG later. The company is eyeing co-ordination with other movie studios, but not immediately.“That’s a key differentiator from a Sony perspective that really speaks to the advantage of what we have in terms of both the electronics business and the content business,” he said. “For the time being, that’s something we bring exclusively to our customers.”Sony is betting big on ultra-HD, and is a leading supplier of high-end cameras that shoot in the format, which renders moving images at a resolution of 3,840 pixels wide and 2,160 pixels tall. That is twice the length and width of high definition, resulting in four times as many pixels, or more than 8 million.The company also makes projectors that show movies in so-called 4K, and Hirai said that anyone who has been to the movies lately has probably experienced it firsthand without realizing it.Getting these higher resolution files to home televisions is no small matter. A Blu-ray disc format has not been created yet and broadcasters are years away from offering TV signals at the higher resolution.Sony representatives said that buyers of its 55-inch (140-centimetre) and 65-inch (165-centimetre) TVs may be asked to buy an ultra-HD server separately, although a final decision hadn’t been made. It is also unclear how much downloadable movies will cost.The company said it would offer Blu-ray discs that are mastered in 4K but compressed to fit on a current Blu-ray disc. The TV’s embedded technology presents the compressed movie at close to 4K resolution, but not quite as good as when they are played from the 4K media player.But with all new technologies, there were glitches.Hirai had an embarrassing moment Monday when he introduced the world’s first ultra-HD TV using organic light-emitting diodes (OLED), only to see the screen go blank as the computer running it had an error.“This revolutionary TV combines the world’s largest OLED display with dazzling 4K resolution, including this beautiful … interface screen,” he said, then turned to see a blank screen as chuckles rippled through the crowd.Later, Hirai looked back at the 56-inch (142-centimetre) display only to see the error continue.“Excellent,” he said.A Sony staffer rolled the TV further away and Hirai carried on his presentation. He later appeared to be good-natured with journalists.Hirai said the ultra-HD OLED set is a prototype and didn’t announce price or availability.In the Sony booth after the presentation, other ultra-HD OLED screens played without a problem. read more

Calling Leitrim diaspora Your county needs YOU

first_imgA LOCAL TOURIST board is calling on Irish emigrants to give them a hand in pushing their home county as a tourist destination.Leitrim Tourism has launched a recruitment drive to attract ‘ambassadors’ who would become “advocates” for the attractions of the county. Joe Dolan, chairman of Leitrim Tourism, said that the awareness drive was also to remind Leitrim natives that they were “very welcome” home:There are many Irish people from County Leitrim living in the United Kingdom, some of whom haven’t visited the county in many years and for various reasons were unable to make it home for the Gathering. This initiative lets them know they are very welcome at any time and that there is plenty to do in County Leitrim.Carrick-on-Shannon, the main town in Leitrim, is this year celebrating 400 years as a town – it was granted a charter by King James I in 1613.Leitrim natives are being encouraged to visit enjoyleitrim.com for more information on what’s on in the county and on Twitter and Facebook.IKEA to invest in Leitrim windfarm to power Irish stores>Beara-Breifne Way means you can now walk from Cork to Leitrim>Varadkar wants your views on the future of Irish tourism>last_img read more

On game day, drones are banned from flying within a 30-nautical-mile radius of the stadium up to 17,999 feet in altitude, from 5:30 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. EST. “Law enforcement is spending way too much time on drones, when those resources could be used for other security,” said Kevin Rowson, public affairs specialist with the FBI in Atlanta, according to The Walton Tribune. The FBI has a zero tolerance policy toward drone use in the No Drone Zone, said FBI spokeswoman Shayne Buchwald in an emailed statement.
