He used to brief them about the government’s various welfare schemes and how to make people aware of them. Modi used to review the performances of key ministries and sectors. The Union Cabinet will also meet Wednesday ahead of the council of ministers’ meeting. With Parliament session beginning next week, the ministers of state will have a key role as in most of the ministries they are responsible to handle parliamentary questions which are tabled on the floor of the House. Cabinet ministers usually handle questions for which oral replies are to be given. In the first Cabinet meeting, the Modi government had approved the expansion of the PM-KISAN scheme to cover all farmers who will get Rs 6,000 financial assistance per annum.
London: British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt warned Saturday there was a “great risk” of escalation in the Gulf, adding that Washington wanted the situation to end in negotiations. A Japanese-owned tanker, the Kokuka Courageous, and a Norwegian-operated one, the Front Altair, were attacked on Thursday and left ablaze as they were passing through the Gulf of Oman. Britain has concluded that responsibility “almost certainly” lies with Iran. Asked on BBC television about the possibility of escalation, he said: “This is the great risk of the situation that we are in.

We are urging all sides to de-escalate. “Having spoken to President Trump, I am absolutely clear that for America they want this to end in negotiations. “Let’s see Iran stop its destabilising activities in Lebanon through Hezbollah, in Yemen where they are firing missiles into Saudi Arabia, on the Gulf as we have seen. That is the long-term solution.” The damaged Kokuka Courageous arrived Sunday at a UAE anchorage site as Saudi Arabia accused arch-rival Iran of being behind the attack. US President Donald Trump has said the twin attacks had Iran “written all over it” — rejecting Tehran’s vehement denial. Hunt defended his assertion that Iran was “almost certain” to blame for the attacks. “We have done our own intelligence assessment. We have got videos of what happened. We have seen evidence. We don’t believe anyone else could have done this,” he said.
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Aramco says it has reached an agreement to acquire a $1.25 billion stake in South Korean refiner Hyundai Oilbank that would provide Saudi Arabia’s state-run oil company with a dedicated outlet for its crude to South Korea.Aramco says the deal, announced on Monday, amounts to a 17% stake in Hyundai Oilbank, a private oil refining company that is a subsidiary of the publicly traded Hyundai Heavy Industries Holdings. The refinery complex in the western coastal city of Daesan, where Hyundai Oilbank’s major facilities are located, has a processing capacity of 650,000 barrels per day.Hyundai Oilbank says the Aramco purchase was made on valuation of the business at around $8.8 billion in market capitalization. It comes ahead of plans for an initial public offering by Hyundai Oilbank.The Associated Press
LOGAN, Utah — Police were able to quickly connect a man to the disappearance and death of a 5-year-old Utah girl using a new type of DNA test that can produce results within hours, authorities said.Logan police used a Rapid DNA test to link Alex Whipple to the Saturday disappearance of his niece, Elizabeth “Lizzy” Shelley, KSL-TV reported .Police had announced Tuesday that they had “strong evidence” against the 21-year-old uncle, who had been staying at his sister’s house in Logan, about 80 miles (129 kilometres) north of Salt Lake City.After the girl was reported missing, investigators found her blood on Whipple’s watch and sweatshirt, authorities said. They also found a broken knife taken from the home with the girl’s blood.The Rapid DNA machines allowed investigators to match the evidence within hours, leading to Whipple being charged with aggravated murder and other counts before the girl’s body had been found, said Nate Mutter, a special agent with the state attorney general’s office. The process of matching DNA can take weeks.The child’s body was found in a wooded area less than a block from her home on Wednesday after Whipple gave his lawyer a map of where she was hidden. Prosecutors said they would not pursue the death penalty in exchange for the map.The attorney general’s office has two of the machines.___Information from: KSL-TV, http://www.ksl.com/The Associated Press
TORONTO — Alison Coville, the president of iconic retailer Hudson’s Bay, is stepping down.Hudson’s Bay Co., its Toronto-based parent company which also owns Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord and Taylor stores, did not give a reason for Coville’s departure.A release from HBC says Coville’s exit will be effective Mar. 1 and that the company will be led by key executives until a permanent successor is found.Coville joined HBC in 1999 as a divisional merchandise manager, but eventually rose through the ranks to land the president position in June 2017.Coville also oversaw household goods brand Home Outfitters, which will be shuttering its 37 Home Outfitters stores this year.The company previously said the closure will help it reduce costs, simplify its business and improve overall profitability.Companies in this story: (TSX:HBC)
Emerald Zone Corporation/Regional Economic Development Board/File With nobody to plow the roads or pilot the ferry or provide electricity, Michael Parsons and his wife, Georgina, will soon be alone. They will use candles when the sky is too dark to use solar panels and boil pots of hot water for baths. He will pass the time with books on stoic philosophy, and she will go snowshoeing, and they will walk their dog, Trinity, and simply ponder.“I guess in some respects, it will be kind of an eerie-type feeling,” says Michael, “but I’m not scared or anything. I know this town inside out, every nook and cranny.”After years of debate, the 54 permanent residents of Little Bay Islands, off the northern coast of Newfoundland, voted in February to resettle to the mainland. They signed agreements with the province, which will spend $8.7 million to help them relocate and expects to save $20 million over the next 20 years, according to a press release from the province in early September. The relocation date has been set for Dec. 31.We are unique — or weirdThe Parsons, however, were not eligible to vote on resettlement because they have not lived in the town long enough. Although Michael grew up there, he lived in Ontario for 22 years before moving back to the town two years ago, and Georgina is from a region closer to St. John’s. They expect some of their neighbours to return each summer, but for the sake of adventure and love of the abandoned island, the Parsons will stay the winter.“I have no concept of boredom,” says Michael, 52. “It’s always been a dream of mine to live in a remote area … I never thought for a moment that it would be in my hometown of Little Bay Islands.”Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.As a child, Michael explored the caves and coves of the island, a 30-minute ferry ride from Pilley’s Island and connection to mainland road network. His father was a fisherman, but Michael left after he graduated high school (in a class of seven students) to Memorial University of Newfoundland. He worked for a California-based software company until he retired at age 49, and he has two grown sons. Georgina worked as an accountant, and they lived northwest of Ottawa, where the pair was also often isolated.“I can honestly tell you, in 10 years, we’ve never even really had a fight,” says Georgina. “We are unique — or weird.” Haunting images of life inside Little Bay Islands, a depopulated Newfoundland town Little Bay Islanders voted on whether to relocate. 89.47 per cent said ‘yes.’ They needed 90 per cent ‘Our little community’s dying’: Isolation prompts Newfoundland town to ask province for ‘resettlement’ Other Newfoundlanders urbanized in the early 1900s, says Jeff Webb, a history professor at Memorial. Resettlement traditionally happened when citizens took the initiative themselves, Webb says, but the government has more recently stepped in to encourage resettlement and help cover the costs.“Newfoundland is becoming more urban; this has been happening for a century and a bit,” says Webb. “Much of people’s wealth is tied up in the land that they own, the house that they have … their gardens, their sheds and all that. If a community is resettled without any aid, you’re asking them to give up all their property … so this is a good way of the government helping to ease the transition.”The Parsons have some elderly neighbours they don’t expect to see again, and Michael’s father will move to a seniors home. His father is now packing up the shed that holds a collection of antiques.“It’s breaking my heart to see people packing their lifetime of belongings in the back of a pickup trip or a U-Haul,” says Michael. “I can look across the garden, and I can see my father … he’s wondering, what will become of this place? What will become of these things when I’m gone?” In Newfoundland, she has friends on the mainland who like to play cards and board games, but she rarely visits them now. “It’s a big treat if I leave and I can go to Tim Hortons,” she says.The couple has spent $50,000 to prepare for the winter. They recently moved to a newly built house with reliable insulation. They installed a solar power system and propane and wood stoves, as well as a “good old-fashioned clothesline,” Michael says. They will need to check the weather forecast before doing laundry to ensure they can hang it outside on the line.“It will certainly have a rawness to it,” he says of life off the power grid.For internet, the couple has a satellite connection, and Georgina hopes to continue occasional contract work as an accountant. They will also have a cell phone, and Michael has been testing antennas to secure the best reception. Amazon does not deliver to Little Bay Islands, he says, so he will order items to pick up at his brother’s house on the mainland. For food, the couple expects there will be weeks or a month when they cannot get supplies because their boat cannot get through the ice. Their stock includes dog food for their Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever.The population of Little Bay Islands began to decline in the 1950s, when residents left for lack of electricity, roads, telephones and adequate schools. The town saw a brief resurgence when a ferry service began, but it declined again in the 1980s as the crab and squid supplies became depleted.Related Undated photo of Little Bay Islands, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Hailing recent announcements by two major philanthropic organizations of plans to undertake massive development projects in Africa, Secretary-General Kofi Annan today expressed the hope that others would also come forward to help countries on the continent to fight poverty, hunger and disease.Earlier this week, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation announced an alliance to contribute to a “Green Revolution” in Africa by dramatically increasing the productivity of small farms, starting with a $150 million investment.Also this week, George Soros and his Open Society Institute pledged $50 million for the Millennium Villages Project of the Millennium Promise Organization.In a statement issued by his spokesman, Mr. Annan said the two initiatives “represent the kind of clear, practical support needed to help give Africans living in rural areas, where the needs are greatest, the tools and support needed to help feed themselves and their children and pull themselves out of poverty.”Spokesman Yves Sorokobi voiced Mr. Annan hope that “these far-sighted actions will encourage others to step forward and support the work by the United Nations and other partners in assisting African countries in their fight against the challenges of poverty, disease and hunger.”

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Vehicles covering a period of over a century will be on display at Greece’s first Vehicle Museum in an exhibition that will open in March.The recently-inaugurated Museum, located on the top level of the three-storey Athenian Capitol multipurpose cultural, commercial and recreational facility, features an 1895 fire pump, the oldest exhibit on display. Other highlights of the exhibition include cars belonging to historical figures of the arts and politics, some of which were acquired through international auctions over the last three decades.All the museum’s exhibits are from the private collection of Charagionis Group founder Theodoros Charagionis, which currently numbers 292 vehicles. Initially, 111 of the vehicles will be on display in the alternating exhibition. They will be replaced by 100-120 other vehicles next year, and by the remaining vehicles of the collection the following year.The museum also plans to host parallel theme exhibitions such as racing cars, and exhibits dedicated to vehicles originating from different industries, such as Ferrari, or different countries, such as Italy.Among the current exhibits are actor Paul Newman’s Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing, legendary Led Zeppelin rock group frontman Robert Plant’s 1959 Chrysler Ιmperial, Formula 1 driver Lorenzo Bandini’s personal 1953 Lancia Aurelia with its Gucci-designed interior, as well as cars that belonged to dukes, barons and members of the House of Lords.A special road safety program for children will also be running at the museum on weekdays, specialised for a variety of age groups. Another attraction is a Formula 1 simulator.Source: Athens News
The open house and dedication ceremony will feature a BBQ, and is open to the public. They did not have the storage space for it, and rather than let it sit outside in that salty air environment and rust, they decided to donate it. The engine was generously donated to Ninilchik Emergency Services by them in May.

Unalaska Department of Public Safety offered up the engine for donation in March after they received a brand new fire engine. Ninilchik Emergency Services donated their old engine to the Moose Pass Volunteer Fire Department. “Engine 9” is formally being introduced to the community of Ninilchik as their new engine on Saturday.
, Astrophysical Journal Earth-like planets have Earth-like interiors The team took a logical approach in creating their model, first inputting data that described as much as is known about the early universe—then next adding data about known exoplanets and also information describing the laws of physics and the way they would work on the elements that made up the universe, and how they would grow or change over approximately 13.8 billion years. They then took a virtual census and found the model had “created” approximately 700 million trillion exoplanets—but, to the surprise of the researchers, the vast majority of them were far older than planet Earth.If correct, the models suggest that Earth is much more unique than other models have been showing in the past few years. This is because it is assumed that if life began on other planets far earlier than on Earth, because it would be much older, it should have matured beyond what we have here on Earth to the point that it would be not only noticeable to us, but likely dominant. But because we have not seen any sign of other life, it appears likely that none is there, or is close enough to spot, which suggests that Earth actually is much more unique than other recent models have been suggesting. The model also suggested that most exoplanets likely exist in galaxies that are a lot bigger than the Milky Way, and orbit stars that are quite different from our sun. To date, space scientists have identified approximately 2,000 exoplanets, clearly a very small proportion of the total amount if the new model is to be viewed as accurate.The researchers acknowledge that their model is based on data that is still only partly understood, and that much of what we have observed to date is still somewhat hazy, thus, it is not clear just how accurate their model really is. (Phys.org)—A small team of researchers, three with Swedish Institutions and one from the U.S. has created a computer model of the known universe and in using it to estimate the number of likely other exoplanets able to hold life, has found that there might be fewer Earth-like planets than has been thought. In their paper they have uploaded to the preprint server, arXiv (soon to be published in The Astrophysical Journal), the team describes how they went about creating their model and what it showed. © 2016 Phys.org Explore further Journal information: arXiv More information: Terrestrial planets across space and time, arXiv:1602.00690 [astro-ph.GA] arxiv.org/abs/1602.00690v1AbstractThe study of cosmology, galaxy formation and exoplanetary systems has now advanced to a stage where a cosmic inventory of terrestrial planets may be attempted. By coupling semi-analytic models of galaxy formation to a recipe that relates the occurrence of planets to the mass and metallicity of their host stars, we trace the population of terrestrial planets around both solar-mass (FGK type) and lower-mass (M dwarf) stars throughout all of cosmic history. We find that the mean age of terrestrial planets in the local Universe is 8±1 Gyr and that the typical planet of this type is located in a spheroid-dominated galaxy with total stellar mass about twice that of the Milky Way. We estimate that hot Jupiters have depleted the population of terrestrial planets around FGK stars at redshift z=0 by no more than ≈10%, and predict that ≈1/3 of the terrestrial planets in the local Universe are orbiting stars in a metallicity range for which such planets have yet to be been detected. When looking at the inventory of planets throughout the whole observable Universe (i.e. in all galaxies on our past light cone) we argue for a total of ≈2×1019 and ≈7×1020 terrestrial planets around FGK and M stars, respectively. Due to the hierarchical formation of galaxies and lookback-time effects, the average terrestrial planet on our past light cone has an age of just 1.7±0.2 Gyr and is sitting in a galaxy with a stellar mass a factor of ≈2 lower than that of the Milky Way. These results are discussed in the context of cosmic habitability, the Copernican principle and the prospects of searches for extraterrestrial intelligence at cosmological distances.via ScientificAmerican This document is subject to copyright.

At the NIV art centre was Uma Shankar Pathak’s figurative studies on canvas that speak to us of struggles and metaphors done in the miniature tradition but works that speak to us about reflective deepened translations of a hand that is stealthy and steady and a grammar that is both devout and deeply indepth with an inherent desire for perfection.”My recent works are the visual narratives of the struggle some life of a peasant, conveyed within a vast space with an economy of color”, says the humble Uma Shankar. “They translate the vast expectation of a poor life of a villager, who has come to the city (Delhi) for the sake of money and position.” Also Read – Add new books to your shelfHis canvasses crawl with tiny creatures but it is the balance of elements and the zebras that catch your gaze for the different ways in which they dot his canvas and give us a sense of a life that is balanced through many trials and tribulations.”In my canvases I have juxtaposed both the rural as well as urban life by punching various objects like- plough, ploughshare, the peasant, the representation of crops as motive over the plough or the ploughshare, the huts etc” explains Uma Shankar. ” I add lots of different objects from real life to my canvas, there are cars, buildings and other city signifiers. The plough is shown turns into the zebra crossing, so as to take the viewer into the village and then again bring him back to the city. It also acts as a platform over which the entire activities are shown in a miniature form. The plough or the ploughshare captures the dominating space in this vast universe of ‘nothing in everything’.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIn his figurative display of creatures and animals and objects floating Uma Shankar gives us multiple trajectories that seem to have their own conversations. In that dialectic of dialogues we see that an inherent individual’s desire is one that is swimming in the dreams of a certain world that is torn between one’s own ideals and the many aspirations that keep us living.When we look at the images of the zebras there is a sense of elevated space-the figurative values of integration in daily life, of being on earth and striving between its daily struggles.So in this reality and the mapping of natural behavior we see a case of time zones-there is mythical and real time, there is also the burden of ritual and the horizon that floats with one’s matrix of moods and memories that seem to float with other elements in between.”My present works are an evaluation of hardships through which a middle class person has to travel .The living standard of a simple person also changes when he comes in contact with the city-environment and the satisfaction with the little he earned vanishes and he is left with so little in his hand,” says Uma Shankar whose show just finished at NIV art centre in Delhi.

REGULATIONS for the effective policing of cannabis cultivation remains the main point of reservation for MPs debating the medical cannabis bill.An article-by-article review of the bill seeking to allow the cultivation and distribution of medical cannabis was conducted by the House health committee on Thursday.Following the meeting, Akel MP Adamos Adamou said that “a way has not been found to reassure committee members regarding the controlling of medical cannabis cultivation, and this is the big question which will determine how the plenum will vote on the legislation.”The bill foresees the granting of two licences to private companies for the cultivation and distribution of medical cannabis to pharmacies. The licences will be valid for 15 years, after which they can be renewed.“The police have made it clear that they can only play a supervisory role,” Adamou continued, “since the two licences will be given to private companies, which the police can only supervise.”As such, Adamou said, the police did not manage to reassure committee members that the prohibition of illegal practices in the cultivation of medical cannabis is achievable.Of the bill’s 162 pages, 155 are dedicated to policing and restrictions on patients’ use, though committee members remain unconvinced.“Just as in previous meetings, serious reservations and doubts were expressed today – not regarding the value of medical cannabis in treating illnesses, for which we all agree on – but regarding how cultivation will be controlled and supervised, so that things don’t get out of control,” Adamou said.The committee will reconvene in two weeks in order for members to state their position on the issue before the bill is placed before the plenum for voting.
