US government says shutdown shouldnt stop Keystone hearing

first_imgHELENA, Mont. — Justice Department attorneys and the Canadian company behind the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline say the U.S. government shutdown shouldn’t delay a court hearing on a judge’s decision to halt construction.Justice Department attorney Bridget McNeil said in a court filing Monday that government lawyers are prohibited from working except in emergencies during the shutdown. But, she adds, federal attorneys’ participation in the hearing next Monday in U.S. District Court in Great Falls isn’t necessary.TransCanada attorneys previously told U.S. District Judge Brian Morris the company is prepared to hold the hearing without the government being represented.In November, Morris ordered an injunction prohibiting pipeline construction activities. TransCanada plans to argue the order should be stayed while an appeal is pending with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Pujara should be India’s number four in ODIs: Sourav

first_imgKolkata: As the conundrum for India’s number four slot in the batting order continues, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has a unique suggestion for the same — Cheteshwar Pujara. India have tried several batsmen at the same position but are yet to finalise on one name. But according to Ganguly, Pujara could be the answer to the puzzle. “See, I am going to say something that might not sound believable to many viewers and a lot of people might laugh at my suggestion,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by a news channel. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian OpenHowever, Ganguly did admit that Pujara’s fielding could be a cause for concern but his prowess with the bat could help India. “For me, Cheteshwar Pujara should be India’s No. 4 in ODIs. His fielding might be a bit weak but he is a very good batsman. I know people will be shocked by my claim but if you want a quality batsman who is better than the options India has tried off late, I think Pujara is the best choice,” he explained. “I believe Pujara has the capability to perform the role that Rahul Dravid used to for India in ODIs earlier,” he said. Also Read – Fast bowler Behrendorff to undergo spinal surgery”But this would have been my decision and I know a lot of people won’t agree with me on this. Sometimes, you need solidity in one-day cricket and Pujara provides you with that in ample measure. Especially, when your top three batsmen are so capable and are scoring a mountain of runs,” he further said. Another area which is still up for grabs is the second choice wicket-keeper. In that position, Ganguly backed Rishabh Pant over Dinesh Karthik despite the southpaw’s indifferent series against Australia. Explaining the reason behind his choice, the 44-year-old said: “I would back Rishabh Pant over Dinesh Karthik,” he added. “The latter has played a lot of cameos but we haven’t seen him play a big innings while pulling the team out of trouble like Kedar Jadhav does for India. So, if I have to choose one amongst the two, I would go for Pant as he is a player of the future.” “But it is quite possible that none of either Pant or Karthik are selected for the World Cup. The way they have backed Vijay Shankar recently, it is possible that none of the two frontline backup wicket-keepers will make it to England. So in the event that Shankar is chosen, only one amongst K L Rahul, Pant and Karthik will be selected,” Ganguly concluded.last_img read more

Former deputy EC appointed special observer for Tripura

first_imgNew Delhi: Former deputy election commissioner Vinod Zutshi was on Monday appointed as special observer for Tripura where the Lok Sabha polls to one of the seats was postponed in view of the law and order situation. On Tuesday last, the Election Commission had postponed polling in the Tripura (East) Lok Sabha seat to the third phase on April 23 (Tuesday) from April 18, saying the prevailing law and order situation there is not conducive for holding free and fair polls. Official sources said, the Commission has issued orders appointing Zutshi as special observer for Tripura. Citing reports of the state chief electoral officer and special police observer, the poll panel had said, “The law and order situation prevailing is not conducive to the holding of free and fair poll.” The returning officer had feared that “miscreant elements” may thwart the polling process in the constituency. Based on the ground and intelligence reports, he had requested for additional central police force. Elections for the first phase were held on April 11, Congress and CPI(M) demanded re-polling in 460 polling stations on the ground of rigging. Opposition parties had demanded fresh polls in Tripura West Lok Sabha constituency, claiming the April 11 election in the state was “heavily rigged” by the ruling BJP. Denying the charge, the BJP had said the allegations were “baseless and politically motivated”. Around 77.6 per cent voter turnout was recorded in the first phase of election in West Tripura. Zutshi was one of the special observers appointed by the EC to ascertain when the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir can be held. The EC had decided against holding assembly elections in the state along with Lok Sabha polls, fearing law and order situation.last_img read more

Clarett returns to Ohio State for classes

Former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett has enrolled in classes at the university for the second summer session, which began on Monday. “Maurice Clarett has been granted reentry into The Ohio State University, following a review by the College of Education and Human Ecology, where he was originally enrolled,” OSU director of media relations Jim Lynch said in a statement.Clarett was released from the Toledo Correctional Institution in April after serving on 3 ½ years of a 7 ½ year sentence for aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon.In negotiation with his early release, Clarett was ordered to spend four to six months at a dormitory step-down center on Alum Creek Drive. Inmates are permitted leave to work or attend classes.Clarett was quickly recognized on campus. “This is a surreal feeling to be back at Ohio State in such a supportive environment,” Clarett said in a statement. “I have looked forward to being back in school and I’m doing my best to fit in with other students. I don’t want to be a distraction or nuisance to the football team or to students on campus.”Clarett might be back in the classroom, but he won’t be making an appearance on the field. After the Buckeyes’ 2002 National Championship, Clarett signed with an agent, forfeiting any remaining eligibility. read more

TCS Saves 16 Million Reduces Training Time by 20 Through Automation of

first_imgThe $15.5 billion (2014-15 revenues) Tata Consultancy Services has saved about $16 million in costs by automating a part of its training programme for freshers, apart from reducing training time by almost 20 percent.The Mumbia-based software services exporter sees a scope to save as much as $128 million annually by automating its ‘Initial Learning Program’.”The innovation helps faculty to use time saved due to automated graded assessment to coach those needing ‘in-person training’. Self practising trainees improve their learnability in the formative stage. The innovation fuses faculty-designed business rules with technology-driven automated assessment,” the Tata Sons Innovista Awards committee told The Economic Times.Besides, the company has also deployed digital learning tools to pick out “high-performers” during the training period.TCS has given jobs offers to about 35,000 freshers in the current financial year. The company has rolled out a online learning portal for the freshers to do a part of the coursework before joining the company.The company’s headcount stood at 3,19,656 as of 31 March, 2015.IT firms spend about $4,000 per employee and yet have to contend with 10 to 15 percent attrition every year, raising overall costs.  Domestic IT companies are currently investing a total of $2 billion in training programs for the freshers every year, according to Nasscom.Bengaluru-based IT firm Infosys has already given training to nearly 25,000 employees in design-thinking, and plans to extend training to 22,000 more in the current financial year. Besides, it has imparted training to about 1,000 employees in artificial intelligence.”Almost every IT company has strategies to train and re-skill. It’s becoming an increasingly important part of how IT companies will be able to grab hold of the digital economy. I would expect more innovations around training,” an analyst with a Mumbai-based brokerage said, requesting anonymity.Recently, Wipro CEO TK Kurien said that the company’s focus on automation will bring down its headcount by a third in the next three years.last_img read more

China Myanmar hail close ties amid Rohingya outcry

first_imgMyanmar`s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi (C) arrives at the opening ceremony of a high-level meeting held by the Communist Party of China (CPC) at the Great Hall of the People on 1 December, 2017. Photo: AFPChinese president Xi Jinping and Aung San Suu Kyi touted their nations’ close ties on Friday as Myanmar’s civilian leader, under fire over the Rohingya refugee crisis, visited Beijing on Friday.Suu Kyi was in friendly territory in China and neither she nor Xi publicly mentioned the plight of Myanmar’s Muslim minority group as they met in the Chinese capital.”The (Communist) Party and the Chinese government will, as in the past, continue their policy of friendship towards Myanmar,” Xi told Suu Kyi during their meeting, according to the Xinhua news agency.Suu Kyi, who took office in 2015 after five decades of military dictatorship, gave a speech later during a meeting of world parties hosted by the Chinese Communist Party.”China and Myanmar are committed to creating closer ties,” she said, adding that the founding goals of the CCP — “happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation of the Chinese nation” — and those of her National League for Democracy party are “not that dissimilar”.The Nobel Peace Prize winner was adored by the global human rights community but has since been ostracised for failing to speak up in defence of the Rohingya in her Buddhist-majority country.The UN and US say the Rohingya are victims of an ethnic cleansing campaign by Myanmar’s military that has sent 620,000 of them fleeing into Bangladesh since late August.Rohingya refugees have recounted widespread cases of rape, murder and arson at the hands of Myanmar’s military and Buddhist mobs.Myanmar’s army insists its crackdown has been proportionate and targeted only at Rohingya rebels.”Although Myanmar is not yet among the rich and powerful nations of the world, we are ambitious,” Suu Kyi said at the CCP gathering.”Our ambition is to become a responsible member of the international community, willing and able to contribute to its peace and friendship throughout the world.”Myanmar has received unflinching support from China, which has invested billions on ports, gas and oil in Rakhine — including a $2.45 billion pipeline that opened in April.Xi met with Myanmar’s powerful army chief Min Aung Hlaing in Beijing last week.Last month, strong Chinese opposition forced the UN Security Council to drop plans to adopt a resolution demanding an end to the violence.Beijing has presented its own proposal to resolve the crisis with a ceasefire, refugee repatriation and poverty alleviation.Bangladesh and Myanmar have reached a deal to begin returning refugees in two months.Arriving in Bangladesh from Myanmar Thursday, Pope Francis urged the world to take “decisive measures” to resolve the crisis, though he avoided using the term “Rohingya” when he was in Myanmar.The label is seen as incendiary to some in the Buddhist-majority country who deny they are a distinct ethnic group.last_img

UPDATE Woman Struck And Killed By SelfDriving Uber Vehicle In Arizona

first_imgPhoto via Twitter @TravisBDriverUber has been testing the self-driving vehicles in Tempe and Phoenix for months.A self-driving Uber vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in a Phoenix suburb in the first fatality involving a fully autonomous test vehicle, prompting the ride-hailing company Monday to suspend all road-testing of such autos in the U.S. and Canada.Depending on who is found to be at fault, the accident could have far-reaching consequences for the development of self-driving vehicles, which have been billed as potentially safer than human drivers.The Volvo was in self-driving mode with a human operator behind the wheel when a woman walking outside a crosswalk in Tempe on Sunday night was hit, police said. The woman, identified as Elaine Herzberg, 49, died at a hospital.Uber suspended all of its self-driving vehicle testing in the Phoenix area, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto.The testing has been going on for months as automakers and technology companies compete to be the first with the technology.Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi expressed condolences on his Twitter account and said the company is working with local law enforcement on the investigation.The federal government has voluntary guidelines for companies that want to test autonomous vehicles, leaving much of the regulation up to states.But Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao also has said technology and automobile companies need to allay public fears of self-driving vehicles, citing a poll showing that 78 percent of people fear riding in autonomous vehiclesThe number of states considering legislation related to autonomous vehicles gradually has increased each year, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. In 2017 alone, 33 states introduced legislation.California is among those that require manufacturers to report any incidents to the motor vehicle department during the testing phase. As of early March, the agency received 59 such reports.UPDATE: Uber pauses self-driving car tests after crash kills woman in Tempe, Arizona pic.twitter.com/00PKnLtxCz— Josh Caplan (@joshdcaplan) March 19, 2018 Sharelast_img read more

How to Stop Google From Using Your Name and Face in Ads

first_img Google ads starring you — yes, we’re talking your real name and your real face — could already be popping up online.That is, unless you’ve already taken action to stop the search giant from using your Google account information in its ads. If you haven’t, we’ll show you how in just a moment in three easy steps.So you might have heard that Google quietly updated its Terms of Service a few weeks ago. If you’re like most people, you didn’t notice, and you might not make a habit of actually reading any company’s trailing terms and conditions, Google included.Related: Amid Privacy Concerns, Google to Reject Facial Recognition Apps on Glass — For NowWell, this time you might want to because Google’s latest “Privacy & Terms” update says the company can “display” a lot about you in ads and “other commercial contexts.”According to Google’s new and not-so-improved (in our opinion) terms, this includes your “Google profile name, profile photo, and actions you take on Google or third-party applications connected to your Google Account (such as +1’s, review you write and recommendations you post) in our Services.”It’s all part of Google’s new Shared Endorsements plan, which ensures “that your reviews, recommendations and other relevant activity” get in front of “the people you really care about” in the form of ads and in other “shopping contexts” that they might see when cruising for apps, music and other stuff in the Google Play store and elsewhere.Related: Congress to Google: Glass Privacy Issues Must Be Taken Seriously Google lays out how the new initiative works in this example:For example, if you search for “Italian restaurants,” you might see an ad for a nearby restaurant along with your friend’s favorable review. Or, in Google Play, you might see that another friend has +1’d a new song or album.That’s the bad news. The good news: You don’t have to sit idly by and let Google sell you out to sell products, services and who knows what else (even if you must sit idly by as Big Brother Google snoops your emails to better advertise to you, which is also clearly noted in its Terms of Service, in case you didn’t know).Here’s all you have to do to keep your name and face out of Google ads:1. Login to your Google account.2. Go to Google’s Shared Endorsements page here and scroll down to the bottom of the page.3. Uncheck the box that reads “Based upon my activity, Google may show my name and profile photo in shared endorsements that appear in ads.”Once you opt out in a few quick clicks, you won’t exactly be flying under Google’s radar.

Eight Amazing Hawaii Farm Tours

first_img For an archipelago that once relied almost completely on exports, Hawaii’s farms are now true treasures that abound across the islands. And doing what Hawaii does best, a plethora of its farms have melded agriculture with tourism, offering travellers farm tours on each major island. These farm tours feature a range of what are now local Hawaiian products. Here’s a list of some of the best farm tours your clients can find on Hawaii.OahuKahuku Farms has a long history on Oahu, dating back to the 1940s. Two Japanese immigrant families, who came to Hawaii to work on the sugar plantations, began separate farms which then merged to become Kahuku Farms, a company that grows and distributes Hawaii wholesale fruits and vegetables. Today travellers can tour Kahuku Farms and choose from a variety of tour options that include the Smoothie Tour — a 30-minute wagon ride tour of the Papaya, Apple and Banana Farms at Kahuku Farm, which finishes with a fresh fruit smoothie. Kahuku Farms’ Grand Tour takes visitors through the wide variety of fruits and veggies offered at the farm and teaches guests about what it takes for farmers to put fresh food on Hawaii’s supermarket shelves.

Papayas, bananas and other fruit make up one category of this tour but on this farm-to-table tasting tour guests will also visit the reserve’s shrimp and tilapia ponds as well as its fresh oyster farm. From there, it’s on to ranch lands to view the reserve’s 500+ head of grass-fed cattle.
