Srinagar: The security forces in Jammu and Kashmir are taking both immediate and long term remedial measures to counter the threat posed to deployed troops by militants’ use of steel-coated armour piercing bullets. “Many immediate and long term remedial measures are being taken to avert the threat to security forces in light of the recent and past use of steel-coated armour piercing bullets by the terrorists in the state. “Immediate measures would include further reinforcement of protective shields used during counter insurgency operations. Long term measures would include upgrade and improvement in the bullet-proof equipment, including helmets and jackets used by the deployed troops,” a senior security forces officer said. An alert was recently sounded across various security agencies and the state police following an internal probe by the CRPF into the killing of five of its troops and an officer of the state police in a militant attack on K.P.Road in Anantnag town on June 12. The probe findings revealed that the lone Fidayeen militant, a Pakistani national belonging to Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM), involved in the attack was able to inflict maximum damage because of the use of steel-coated bullets. The rifle magazine of the slain militant contained 18 live steel-coated bullets even after he had used quite a few of them to target the CRPF troops and the state Police Station House Officer (SHO), Arshad Khan, sources said. The CRPF probe also revealed that the JeM militants had used steel-coated bullets in 2017, but not during militant attacks carried out last year. “While additional protective layers on bullet proof equipment used by the security forces is being put into practice, future remedial measures would depend on how quickly the present bullet proof equipment is phased out,” said another informed source here.
OTTAWA – Paul Dick, a former Progressive Conservative MP and Mulroney-era cabinet minister, has died at the age of 77.His family says in a statement he died of a heart attack at home on Wednesday.Dick, a lawyer, was first elected to the House of Commons in 1972 and was re-elected five times.He was named to the cabinet by Brian Mulroney in 1986 as associate defence minister and later minister of supply and services.Kim Campbell, Mulroney’s successor, kept Dick in the supply portfolio and later moved him to Public Works.After 21 years in the Commons, he was defeated in the 1993 election which saw the Tories all but wiped out.He went into business after that, finally retiring in 2010.He is survived by his wife, Pierrette Cassista, sons Wyatt and Andrew and two grandchildren.
PulteGroup CEO plans retirement, as founder seeks change by The Associated Press Posted Apr 4, 2016 6:17 am MDT Last Updated Apr 4, 2016 at 5:27 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email PulteGroup Chairman and CEO Richard J. Dugas Jr. will retire next year, a decision the homebuilder attributes in part to a leadership change demanded by the company’s founder and his grandson.But in a letter to the company’s board Monday, founder Bill Pulte wrote that Dugas’ retirement plan “falls far short of the short-term leadership change that PulteGroup shareholders and PulteGroup employees need.” He also criticized the company for saying Monday that it won’t nominate Jim Grosfeld, Pulte’s former chairman and CEO, to stay on the board.Dugas has served as CEO since 2003 and chairman of the company’s board since 2009. The Atlanta-based company said Monday that Dugas decided to retire in May 2017, due in part to the actions of founder Bill Pulte; his grandson, also named Bill Pulte; and Grosfeld, who was appointed to the board in December at the founder’s request.PulteGroup Inc. said Bill Pulte, who founded the company in 1950, and Grosfeld had recently demanded an immediate CEO change and a different direction for the company.The homebuilder said Dugas offered to accelerate the board’s succession plan to avoid a “public battle that would not be in the interests of shareholders.”PulteGroup operates in about 50 markets around the country. Its brands include Centex, Pulte Homes, Del Webb and DiVosta Homes.Company shares fell $1.21, or 6.6 per cent, to close at $17.21 Monday. The stock has declined 24 per cent in the past 12 months.PulteGroup will report first quarter earnings on April 21.___This story has been corrected to show that Jim Grosfeld is not Bill Pulte’s grandson, who is also named Bill Pulte.
The Canadian Press CARDIFF, Wales — Forward Courtney Holtkamp scored two tries Saturday to help Canada rally to defeat Wales 38-21 in women’s rugby play.Wales, which trailed 10-7 at the break, led 21-17 after 58 minutes at Cardiff Arms Park.

Magali Harvey and Brianna Miller each kicked two conversions.Carys Phillips, Sioned Harries and Lisa Neumann scored tries for Wales with Robyn Wilkins kicking the rest of the points.Canada, coached by Sandro Fiorino, closes out its tour on Tuesday against No. 11 Scotland in Glasgow.The victory in Wales came one day after the Canadian men qualified for the 2019 Rugby World Cup with a 27-10 win over Hong Kong at a last-chance repechage in France.
UKRAINE IS VOTING in a presidential election seen as the most important in the country’s history as it battles a deadly pro-Russian insurrection in the east.Turnout was strong in the capital Kiev and the west but across swathes of the rebel-controlled industrial east, most polling stations remained closed.“Ukraine is now another country so I don’t see why we should take part in this election,” said one woman in the rebel-held city of Donetsk who gave her name as Elisabeta.“It doesn’t matter what the result is, it doesn’t concern us today.”The West regards the vote as a crucial step in preventing Ukraine from disintegrating further after Russia seized the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea in March in retaliation for the ouster of pro-Kremlin president Viktor Yanukovych.Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk had issued an appeal for voters to turn out in force on Sunday to “defend Ukraine” in the face of a crisis that has plunged relations between East-West relations to a post-Cold War low.“I hope this election will finally bring peace to Ukraine,” said 38-year-old businessman Oleg as he voted in the western nationalist bastion of Lviv near the Polish border.Voting closes at 1700 GMT, with first results expected from 2100 GMT.Few polling stations openBut in the Donetsk region alone, where rebels declared independence earlier this month in defiance of Kiev, only 426 out of 2,430 polling stations were open, and none in the main city.Even before polling day, election officials had reported numerous cases of intimidation and attacks on polling centres and rebels threatened Saturday they would disrupt the vote “by force if necessary”.An Italian journalist was killed yesterday during a mortar shell attack close to Slavyansk Rome’s foreign ministry announced.Violence had flared on the eve of the vote in eastern flashpoint of Slavyansk, where two Western photographers and their Russian translator wounded after being caught in gunfire between separatist and Ukrainian forces. Pro-Russian militants smash ballot boxes in front of the seized regional administration building in Donetsk Source: AP Photo/Vadim GhirdaPresident Vladimir Putin — authorised by parliament to invade Ukraine if necessary to “protect” ethnic Russians — had appeared to make a major concession Friday by saying he was ready to work with the new Kiev team.“We understand that the people of Ukraine want their country to emerge from this crisis. We will treat their choice with respect,” he said.Russia, threatened with more Western sanctions if it disrupts the vote, also said it has started withdrawing from Ukraine’s border around 40,000 soldiers and dozens of tank battalions whose presence had raised deep suspicions about Russia’s next move.Ukraine has mobilised more than 82,000 police and 17,500 volunteers to ensure security for the vote, being overseen by 1,200 international monitors.

Source: Alexander ZemlianichenkoThe packed field of candidates features clear frontrunner Petro Poroshenko — a billionaire chocolate baron and political veteran who sees Ukraine’s future anchored to Europe — and 17 far less popular hopefuls that include ex-premier Yulia Tymoshenko.The election should give the new president a stamp of legitimacy as he or she battles against the insurgency and tries to repair relations with Ukraine’s former masters in Russia.However, opinion polls show Poroshenko falling just short of the 50-percent threshold needed to avoid a second round on June 15, and three weeks of further political uncertainty.The snap ballot was called by Kiev’s interim leaders who took power after Yanukovych fled in the bloody climax of months of protests sparked by his rejection of a historic EU alliance.At least 150 people have been killed since the separatists took up arms against Kiev in early April, according to an AFP tally based on UN and Ukrainian government figures.- © AFP, 2014Read: Pro-Russian rebels kill 17 Ukrainian troops ahead of vote >More: Nine Ukraine soldiers killed by Russian separatists >
Most people know Teddy Patrick as the Costco employee with a bright smile and sweet voice who serenades shoppers as they leave the Vancouver warehouse store.So it’s only fitting that the community came together to sing for Patrick after a heart attack sidelined the beloved Vancouver resident.About 150 people of all ages — some of whom know Patrick personally, some of whom have had only fleeting encounters with him at Costco — gathered Friday morning at Hillcrest Church of the Nazarene to sing Christmas carols and gospel songs in a show of support. A video of the singalong is being sent to Patrick, who is recovering from open heart surgery in the intensive care unit at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland.“Teddy has inspired each of us,” said Stephanie Johnson, who attends Hillcrest Church with Patrick and helped to organize Friday’s event. “He inspires us to be kind, welcoming and, most important, bold and fearless in sharing a unique light we all have to see and feel.”“It will bring joy to Teddy for each of us to carry his torch while he recovers,” Johnson told the crowd.Patrick, who is in his mid-70s, suffered a heart attack Wednesday and underwent open-heart surgery Thursday morning. The surgery lasted about three hours, and Patrick is recovering well, said Hillcrest Pastor Tim Westerberg.Patrick will be in the ICU for a few days before moving into a lower-level care unit and then returning home, Westerberg said.“He’s doing really well,” he said. “He’s going to be back doing what he loves to do, and that’s brightening our day.”
Ian Wright has praised the performance of the England national team under the guidance of Gareth Southgate.Wright, who was working as a pundit for ITV, watched the Three Lions defeat Croatia 2-1 in their final group game of the UEFA Nations League to progress to the semis.Asked to give Southgate a grade for the year, he said, according to Daily Mail:“Massive progress, talking A+. A++ [if England had won the World Cup]. I’m not going A-, I’m going A+, really progressive, really happy… The mere fact the fans are backing him now, they’re looking forward to international games now. A+”Meanwhile, Wright reserved praise for Harry Kane, who, despite missing a few chances early on, continued to get into the right areas and eventually scored the winner for England.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.‘When you’ve got a manager who’s going to keep you on, Harry Kane is like Lineker, Shearer, Owen, Rooney. They will stay on. If they do miss a chance like that, probably they’re going to get another chance somewhere later on in the game.’After the game, Gareth Southgate also praise Kane, calling the Spurs striker, the ‘best goalscorer in world football.’“Harry Kane knows he’s going to stay on and he knows he’ll get a chance and probably will score,” said Wright.England will be in the Nations League semifinals which take place in Portugal, starting in June 2019.
Driver strife Uber proposes $20M settlement of driver classification lawsuit Lyft and Juno sue NYC over driver pay rules Uber drivers protest low pay ahead of multibillion-dollar IPO After hearing from the drivers, the four supervisors at the committee hearing all agreed more had to be done to protect gig workers. Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, who is chairman of the committee, got choked up saying how hard it was to hear their stories.”I was thinking about the arrogance of people a decade ago that promised disruption, and boy have they delivered,” Mandelman said. “In large part relying on a business model that dismantles more than half a century of advances in worker protections.”He and the other supervisors pledged to get the entire Board of Supervisors to pass the San Francisco resolution supporting AB 5. Mandelman said he’d be surprised if the resolution didn’t pass unanimously. AB 5 passed the California State Assembly on May 29 in a 53 to 11 vote. The State Senate is scheduled to hold a hearing on the bill on July 10.Originally published June 28. Update, July 1: Amends language on possible outcome if AB 5 is signed into law. 56 Share your voice An Uber spokesman said the company isn’t taking a position on AB 5.”We are not seeking a carve out, rather we are seeking new legislation that would give drivers the protections and commitments that they are asking for while providing protections for our business model,” the Uber spokesman said.Nearly every driver who spoke at the committee hearing on Friday said they wanted California to pass AB 5 and they wanted San Francisco to support the bill. Many cited a May study by the Economic Policy Institute that says the average wage for a US ride-hail driver is $9.21 per hour after deducting expenses, such as gas and maintenance. “The only benefit I get with Uber and Lyft is diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol,” said Al Aloudi, who has driven for the two companies since 2015. “Uber and Lyft give us messages that say AB 5 is about flexibility. AB 5 is not about flexibility, it’s about our rights.” Mobile Tech Industry Roadshow Uber drivers protest in front of the company’s San Francisco headquarters in May. Dara Kerr/CNET So many people showed up to a San Francisco Board of Supervisors committee hearing on Friday that the city had to open an overflow room. The topic at hand: Uber and Lyft drivers’ rights.The city’s Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee convened to discuss a resolution that would support a proposed California state bill that could require Uber and Lyft to make their drivers employees. Currently, drivers are classified as independent contractors, sometimes referred to as gig-workers, which means they don’t get benefits including Social Security, health insurance, paid sick days and overtime. More than two dozen drivers took to the podium with similar stories. They said they’ve seen lower pay, higher costs and longer working hours as the cost of living has risen over the years. When they get sick, they said they can’t afford to take time off.”Since Lyft’s incentives have traditionally been tied to number of rides, rather than time on the road, I’m encouraged to push myself to the limit,” said Edan Alva, who’s a Lyft driver in San Francisco. “I feel trapped like one of those caged hamsters running in a wheel.” They are relying on a business model that dismantles more than half a century of worker protections. San Francisco Supervisor Rafael Mandelman The issue of gig worker classification is nothing new. Lawsuits have been brought against both Uber and Lyft going back as far as 2013. Since then, several cities and states have examined the matter. While New York City passed minimum wage laws for drivers last year, the National Labor Relations Board said last month it believes drivers should be classified as contractors instead of employees. Under California’s proposed Assembly Bill 5, drivers could be classified as employees, provided benefits and have the right to collectively organize.Uber and Lyft appear to be opposed to AB 5. One reason why is that the companies will have to re-work their business models if they’re required to turn their drivers into employees. Not only will they have to pay worker costs, they will also have to manage a workforce of tens of thousands of drivers in California.Driver protectionsIn a rare showing of cooperation, Uber and Lyft have banded together over the issue. The CEOs of both companies wrote a joint op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle earlier this month saying they wanted to work with the state to allow drivers to remain independent contractors. In return, the companies said they’d offer drivers a “commitment to driver pay” and let them form a “new driver association.””It’s also no secret that a change to the employment classification of ride-share drivers would pose a risk to our businesses,” the CEOs wrote.The two companies also sent messages to all California drivers saying that if they’re classified as employees, they could lose their flexible work schedules. The messages encouraged drivers to contact state legislators to say what they value about their work. A Lyft spokesman said more than 30,000 emails on the topic have been sent to legislators since it sent out its message.”Lyft is advocating for an approach in line with the interests of our driver community,” the Lyft spokesman said in an email. “Our goal is to preserve drivers’ independence and flexibility.” The only benefit I get with Uber and Lyft is diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Dear Skyscanner,I’m a big fan of Halloween and love to scare myself silly! Do you have any good ideas for haunted holidays or destinations that go bump in the night?Alan, ManchesterDear Alan,If you’re the scary movie and ghost story type, why not take it one step further by indulging in a spooky holiday? Personally, I jump at my own shadow, but if you really want to scare yourself silly on holiday, I’ve got a few ideas for you here – from haunted hotels to creepy festivals – perfect for a Halloween break.I’ll start with Mexico’s Day of the Dead festival, or El Día de Muertos. It celebrates the same All Saint’s Day that Christian and Catholic calendars recognise, but the festival lasts for two days or more around November 1, rather than October 31, or Halloween. It’s all about celebrating dead friends and relatives, and having some fun too.The festival is celebrated in varying degrees across the country, including the Mayan town of Pomuch in the Yucatán peninsula, where relatives exhume the bones of dead relatives, and Oaxaca, where street art goes macabre during the festival.If you’re not going beyond Mexico City, you can still find plenty of spine-tingling activities. Wonder at the intricate altars set up by families to guide the spirits of the dead back to earth, the markets filled with flowers, decorated bread and sugar skulls, and the cemeteries brought to life, as it were, by raucous picnics and parties.If you’re looking for somewhere special to stay in Mexico City, try Habita in Polcano, a stylish minimalist hotel with fascinating architecture and a rooftop pool. You can get a room there for £100 a night.Another place where it really kicks off over All Saints’ Day is the Philippines, where Day of the Dead, or Araw ng mga Patay make November 1 one of the biggest events in the national calendar. Families join for picnics and drinking around the graves of dead relatives. Some cemeteries even host overnight stays, supplying running water and electricity to the visitors. If you want some pool-time with your stay, the Edsa Shangri-La Manila hotel has a resort feel, given it’s a city centre property in Manila, and has rooms from £84 a night.Speaking of cemeteries, a wonderful one to visit is Père Lachaise, the largest burial ground in Paris. With the evenings drawing in earlier around Halloween, a dusk visit is sure to put the wind up you.If, however you’d like to learn a bit more about the dead that reside there, it’s probably best to visit, or at least arrive, in clear daylight. You won’t be alone – it’s reputedly the world’s most visited cemetery, but there’s plenty of space for visitors, and at this time of year it tends to be quieter. As well as the war memorials, there are countless graves of various French and international famous, and infamous, citizens.One of the most visited graves is that of Oscar Wilde, but popular graves also include Jim Morrison, Victor Hugo, Proust, Chopin and Edith Piaf.The cemetery is in 20th arrondisement on Boulevard de Ménilmontant, and the closest metro stations are Philippe Auguste on line 2 and Père Lachaise on line 3. It is open 7:30am-6pm weekdays and from 9am weekends and Bank Holidays, although opening hours change during November, so check before you go.If you want to stay on the right side of the city centre for accessing the cemetery, check out Appartement Blanc on the edge of the Marais. It’s a two-bedroom apartment in a fashionable area with a roof terrace and trendy décor. Great fun and good value for a family or two couples, at around £110 per night for a three-night stay.If you want to find a place that takes Halloween seriously, try the US. The shops are overflowing with costumes, food, toys and games, themed for the big night. Adults and children alike go to town on outfits and throw parties to remember.If you want to meet some fellow Halloween enthusiasts (the kind that celebrate year-round), then the spookiest spot in the country is Salem, in Massachusetts. Thousands of ghoul-spotters convene there every October for a witchcraft exhibition, giant zombie ball, mass séance, and more. Check out salem.org for the overwhelming calendar of events.If you want to enjoy some good old-fashioned American hospitality and a touch of Martha Stewart chintz, check out Northey Street House B&B. It was built around 1809 and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places, but even better, you’ll get a huge American breakfast to set you up for a day of witch-hunting. Rates start at £130 a night at this time of year, and you’ll need to book early to bag a room.Finally, that spooky hotel I mentioned. Staying in the US, how about booking a room at the hotel that inspired Stephen King’s movie, The Shining? The Stanley Hotel in Colorado is in a remote spot in the Rocky Mountain National Park. You can relive the movie fright-fest with a ghost tour (£10, booked in advance), and you might even be “lucky” enough to get room 217, where King stayed and allegedly came up with the idea for the movie. Alongside ghoulish adventures, there’s a spa and outdoor pool as well as countless hiking trails, although many will be closed over the winter. There’s always the option to take a seat by an open fire and curl up with a good book… horror, of course. Rooms start at around £100 a night.Answer by Ginny Light – TimesOnline travel editorGot a travel question?
