Arizona Cardinals president Michael Bidwill right

first_imgArizona Cardinals president Michael Bidwill, right, talks with general manager Steve Keim during practice at the NFL football team’s training camp in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) Top Stories Both, however, have also been linked to the New York Giants head coaching vacancy.Despite the speculation and rumors surrounding the coaches the Cardinals have interviewed, Bidwill said he will not rush the process.“The process for me and for Steve, we want to have a thorough process,” he said. “That is going to include second interviews where we can dive down into a little bit more detail. We have now broken the ice with people we didn’t know before and we will have more of a relaxed setting in terms of getting to know people.”The Cardinals have interviewed coaches that have backgrounds in all three phases of the game — offense, defense and special teams. Bidwill explained that they are not looking for a specific background in particular, but does admit that someone with ties to quarterback development could be a factor.It’s quite possible the Cardinals will target a quarterback in the draft, and a new signal caller will likely be on the way regardless; after Carson Palmer’s retirement and Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert both becoming free agents, the Cardinals don’t have a quarterback on their roster for 2018.Related: The 5: Arizona Cardinals’ biggest 2018 roster questions Arians brought a unique personality to the Cardinals organization, a hard-nosed, straight-shooter who never feared to share his opinion. Arians was one-of-a-kind, and Bidwill knows that.“You could never find someone that can be just like BA because he is so unique,” Bidwill said on the Big Red Rage on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station Thursday. “That’s what we loved about him. Each one of these football coaches has their own leadership style. I am convinced that we have a great group here.”Bidwill remains focused on bringing in a coach that will develop a working relationship with all members of the organization, and someone that has a dominant personality to lead a roster filled with talent.Bidwill and Keim have interviewed a total of nine candidates, all of which have “great potential,” according to Bidwill.“It is the best group of candidates that I have ever had the opportunity to interview,” he added.Though Bidwill remained quiet on who the Cardinals would bring in for a second round of interviews, reports have surfaced that Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks are the front runners for the position. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 10 Comments   Share   The Arizona Cardinals are without a head coach for the first time in five years, as Bruce Arians announced his retirement shortly after the season finale win against the Seahawks.Arizona Cardinals president Michael Bidwill and general manager Steve Keim wasted little time scouting potential successors to Arians, requesting to interview numerous coaches just hours after Arians announced his decision to step away from the game. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Shurmur has proven his ability to develop quarterbacks this season, as Vikings quarterback Case Keenum under Shurmer has led the team to the second overall seed in the NFC and a 13-3 record.Keenum is also a free agent after the season, along with other Vikings quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford. Shurmur becoming a head coach could be seen as a potential draw for one or all of the Vikings gun slingers if they are not signed to extensions before hand.Despite his defensive background, Wilks has been reportedly linked to Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, who could become Wilks’ offensive coordinator should he be hired as a head coach. DeFilippo was also one of nine candidates the Cardinals interviewed.With the second round of interviews reportedly beginning in the next week for the Cardinals, Bidwill remains clear that the they will “leave no stone unturned” in the search for a coach that best fits the organization.“What I am trying to do is make the best decision for us,” he said. “To hire the next leader, head coach that will deliver championships to this team and to this town.” – / 9 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

SantAgata BologneseLamborghini Launches The Matte

first_imgSant’Agata BologneseLamborghini Launches The Matte Trend, Proposing A New Dark Blue For Exteriors And Natural Tuscan Leather For Interiors As New Personalization OptionsAutomobili Lamborghini will present three brand-new examples of vehicle personalization, intentionally drawing inspiration from the most glamorous trends of the world of fashion, at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show on January 13-26, 2008.The proposed individualizations are part of the Ad Personam personalization program. The vehicles are based on the concept of “think of the impossible” and offers Lamborghini customers the ability to create their own “original”, perfectly tailor-made super sports car.The Gallardo Spyder will be presented in an innovative Ad Personam matte brown paint, Marrone Apus, now available on standard vehicles in the wake of the enormous success met by the Reventón, the very first Lamborghini offered with a matte finish.Marrone Apus, an elegant shade halfway between brown and black, gives off exquisite golden reflections in the sunlight due to a pigment able to imbue the paint with an iridescent look.The interior also exhibits a new shade of brown Alcantara, named Marrone Gaia which is used to upholster the seats. The fabric is combined with Marrone Janus and Bianco Polar leather, with the addition of Pianolac used to cover the center console and steering wheel.A new shade of light blue, Blu Cepheus, also joins the Ad Personam program. It is proposed for the exteriors of the Murciélago LP640 Coupé and Roadster in Detroit . This pale blue is reminiscent of the naturalistic environment and is deliberately inspired by the purity and transparency of polar ice, in addition to depicting one of the most glamorous shades in fashion today.This shade also benefits from the same iridescent effects of the matte paint. The same pigment selected for Marrone Apus is used in this case to attain and exalt a more primary blue when reflecting sunlight. Blu Cepheus is iridescent in the light just like icebergs, although it maintains its monochromatic nature.Another novelty of the Ad Personam program is the leather selected for the interiors of the Murciélago LP640 Roadster. This leather covers the elegant seats of this super sports car, an Italian leather,in keeping with Tuscany ’s prestigious tanning tradition. It is untreated, inspired by the natural leather found on horse saddles and leads to natural changes in color over time, a tendency that confirms its natural state and total absence of treatments.“Lamborghini is strongly focusing on the Ad Personam personalization program due to the importance of offering customers the widest range of possibilities for individualizing their cars. This allows them the ability to reflect their own personality and style,” states Stephan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini . “Many of our customers take advantage of this program as a tool for owning an even more exclusive Lamborghini.”last_img read more

EU plans golden visa crackdown Updated

first_imgBrussels is planning to crack down on EU countries including Cyprus that award citizenships to rich third-country nationals amid growing concerns over dirty money from Russia, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.The FT quoted EU Commissioner for Justice, Vera Jurova, as saying that such schemes in eight member states will come under tougher scrutiny from Brussels as part of a broader drive against money laundering and corruption.“In cases of any doubt, a person should not have the privilege of citizenship,” Jourova told the Financial Times. “We have no power to ban such a practice but we have an obligation to put high requirements on the member states to be careful.”The EU states with “citizenship by investment” schemes include Malta, Cyprus, but also Austria, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Portugal.In March, the European Commission announced its intention to scrutinise the golden visa programmes of member states after anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International said that such schemes undermined the EU’s fight against corruption and money laundering.Leaked documents showed that the Cypriot scheme attracted mainly candidates from Russia, Ukraine, the Middle East, and South and East Asian countries, many of which are considered high-risk jurisdictions in terms of money laundering.In 2017, 503 foreign investors acquired a Cypriot passport and a further 510 family members.Five years ago, the island took drastic measures to improve its legislation and regulations against money laundering.Three months ago, it also launched a PR campaign to improve its image abroad, tarnished by reports in the past linking it to the legalisation of illicit funds.In July, the committee supervising Cyprus’ ‘golden visa’ programme unveiled the registry of service providers, which includes 255 companies and individuals.The registry includes 133 lawyers, law firms, advocates and legal services providers, 20 administrative service providers, 19 accounting, auditing and tax service providers, 19 real estate and land development companies, and other corporate, citizen and migration service and consultancy providers.The Committee of Supervision of the Cyprus Investment Programme, as it is officially known, was set up in June and was tasked with overseeing the implementation of the programme.The registered service providers will have to compete for the up to 700 visas per year the government will grant to non-Cypriots investing at least €2 million on the island.Registered service providers are required to comply with a code of conduct which bans them from actively advertising the Cypriot passport as a product and need to apply specific anti-money laundering practices, including know-your-customer’s-customer.The registry includes all four major auditing firms and law firms linked to active politicians, such as Nicos Chr. Anastasiades & Partners LCC, linked to President Nicos Anastasiades, and Tassos Papadopoulos & Associates LLC, linked to Diko chairman Nicolas PapadopoulosLater on Monday, the Investment Migration Council (IMC) the worldwide association for investor immigration and citizenship-by-investment, that brings together the leading stakeholders in the field and gives the industry a voice, responded to Jurova’s comments.Bruno L’ecuyer, IMC chief executive said its members were compliant to a comprehensive code of ethics and professional conduct, that addresses any issue pertaining to security.Significant time and capital is spent by professional firms and governments to ensure the tightest levels of security and background checks were carried out by European and global security agencies, he said.Citizenship-by-Investment applications were also vetted against current EU anti-money-laundering and financing of terrorism legislation and must adhere to legal and regulatory obligations that individual EU states have adopted in line with EU law.“It ensures the highest levels of corporate governance and due diligence is in place to prevent any security concerns,” L’ecuyer added.He said the IMC shared and understood the Commissioner’s concerns in respect of the security of EU citizens but believes that the governance, due diligence and transparency of applicants under the provisions in Austria, Malta and Cyprus – the three most active countries in the EU in this field – were not a security threat to the EU, given that very strict due diligence procedures and background checks on applicants are in place in those countries.The IMC said the scheme was is very small in terms of applications – approximately 700 to 1,000 per year.By comparison, it said, according to Eurostat, in 2016 a total of 994,800 people obtained citizenship of an EU-28 Member State, meaning citizenship-by-investment accounted for around  0.1 per cent of the total of new EU citizenships granted each year. The IMC said it would welcome a meeting with Commissioner Jourova to discuss her concerns.  You May LikeGolden GlimpseTake A Look At This Luxurious House of Maria Sharapova In LAGolden GlimpseUndoCaesarPostsSelena Gomez’ Final Net Worth Stuns His FamilyCaesarPostsUndomygreekfriend.travelPlan Your Meditation Vacations to Greece for 9 Days.mygreekfriend.travelUndo Urgent work planned on collapsed section of Nicosia wallsUndoHigh temperatures increase risk of firesUndoProtest outside the House over foreclosures lawUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

law on Oct 22 of that year It was the first major gun control measure in the United States in 30 years but its passage earned this dismissive take in the pages of TIME: “better than nothing” “Forget the democratic processes the judicial system and the talent for organization that have long been the distinctive marks of the US Forget too the affluence (vast if still not general enough) and the fundamental respect for law by most Americans Remember instead the Gun” the magazine had noted earlier that year in a cover story about the role of guns in the United States which was prompted by the assassination of Robert F Kennedy “All too widely the country is regarded as a blood-drenched continent-wide shooting range where toddlers blast off with real rifles housewives pack pearl-handled revolvers and political assassins stalk their victims at will The image of course is wildly overblown but America’s own mythmakers are largely to blame In US folklore nothing has been more romanticized than guns and the larger-than-life men who wielded them From the nation’s beginnings in fact and fiction the gun has been provider and protector” Though the 1968 law was a victory of sorts for gun-control activists many were disappointed it didn’t include a registry of firearms or federal licensing requirements for gun owners TIME reported “It may take another act of horror to push really effective gun curbs through Congress” Those dynamics the disappointment of gun-control activists particularly after moments of tragedy running up against the very real place of guns in American society may sound familiar To mark the law’s anniversary and as TIME once again examines the role of the gun in the nation’s culture TIME spoke to historian Robert Spitzer author of five books on gun policy including Guns Across America and The Politics of Gun Control about that landmark law What was going on in the world and the country when the Gun Control Act of 1968 passed It had been floating around Congress for several years [Discussion] really began after the JFK assassination; there was a strong sense that people shouldn’t buy guns through interstate mail because Lee Harvey Oswald did through an ad that appeared in a NRA magazine Congress held hearings but it didnt really go anywhere Now in 1968 the country is facing rising urban rioting In the mid-to-late ’60s crime begins to increase There’s greater concern about guns and easy accessibility to guns Martin Luther King is assassinated in April In June Robert Kennedy was assassinated and that was really the final push that brought the law back and got it through Congress What are the most important things the law changed It banned interstate shipments of firearms and ammunition to private individuals [and] sales of guns to minors drug addicts and “mental incompetents” This is the first time you have in law that mentally unbalanced people ought not to be able to get guns also convicted felons It also strengthened the licensing and record-keeping requirements for gun dealers and that was significant because gun dealers were subject to virtually no systematic scrutiny up until this time although a 1938 federal law did establish a fee they paid to government to be a licensed dealer It banned importation of foreign-made surplus firearms except those appropriate for sporting purposes Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter How did the NRA react to the law The President of the NRA who had testified before Congress about the bill had said [paraphrasing] ‘Were not thrilled with this but we can live with it I think it’s reasonable’ The fact that he would concede there’s any such thing as a reasonable gun control legislation that represented the prevailing point of view of NRA leadership at the time from 1968 to the late 1970s A change of leadership occurred at the NRA’s annual convention in 1977 in Cincinnati A group of dissidents within the NRA felt the leaders were out of touch not political enough and that the NRA wasnt stepping in to defend gun owners This dissident faction took over and since then the NRA became more political So the 1968 law was part of a larger political process that eventually led to a change of leadership within the NRA It didnt result in any political sea change that doesnt happen or another decade but you could point to the law as one factor that eventually causes more dissident gun owners to say ‘Were getting beat up our leaders arent doing the right kind of job and we need a change’ So how did that larger change eventually happen Portions of the ’68 law were modified by a law passed by Congress in 1986 the Firearms Owners Protections Act which sought to repeal even more of the law It didn’t succeed but the 1986 law does repeal or modify or blunt some of the aspects of the ’68 law [It does that] by amending the ’68 law to allow for the interstate sale of rifles and shotguns as long as it was legal in the states of the buyer and seller eliminating certain record-keeping requirements for ammunition dealers and making it easier for individuals selling guns to do so without a license The 1986 federal law was the culmination of the effort to try to roll back the 1968 law Reagan is the first president to speak at the NRAs annual convention and he was the first presidential candidate ever endorsed by the NRA although past presidents were NRA members The NRA didnt endorse candidates before 1980 How does the Gun Control Act of 1968 relate to the political debate in recent years in particular the conversation about mass shootings It doesnt connect up with that phenomenon which started in 1989 when a gunman shot up an elementary school [The law] had nothing to say about assault weapons; sales were tiny until the mid 1980s when the Chinese dumped cheap assault weapons on the American market and sales began to take off It seems harder to pass federal gun-control legislation now than it was back then If that’s the case why do you think that’s so The gun issue hadnt been politicized in the ’60s the way it has been in the last few decades where it has become even more angry and strident; 1968 was a year of political assassinations that shocked the nation What do people get wrong about the history of gun control Are there any myths you find yourself debunking One of the great myths is the idea that gun-control laws are an artifact of the modern era the 20th century Gun laws are as old as America literally to the very early colonial beginnings of the nation From the beginning of the late 1600s to the end of the 1800s gun laws were everywhere thousands of gun laws of every imaginable variety You find virtually every state in the union enacting laws that bar people from carrying concealed weapons That’s something people don’t realize When we were all colonies there were laws in the 1600s making it illegal to discharge a weapon near a road near buildings populated areas or on Sundays and that barred discharge of a gun during social occasions In New Jersey there was a law that said you werent allowed to discharge a weapon when you were drunk and the two exceptions were at weddings and funerals In the old ‘Wild West’ they took people’s guns away when they were in a populated area only to be retrieved when they left That exemplifies how laws were much tougher 150 years ago than in the last 30 years Correction: Oct 30 2018 The original version of this story misstated the availability of assault weapons for civilian use

for Batman [EW] Contact us at editors@timecomMoving on from an ex can be tough especially if you were the one let go But according to a new study in the Journal of Neuroscience the secret to feeling better is simple: Just do something anything that you think will helpbecause it probably will Psychologists from the University of Colorado Boulder recruited 40 volunteers who had been broken up with in the past six months and asked them each to bring two photos to a brain-imaging lab: one of their ex and one of a platonic friend Everyone was given a functional MRI while being shown one photo after the other Between photos researchers applied heat applied to everyone’s arm with a temperature-controlled device to stimulate mild-to-moderate pain Throughout the scan they were asked to rate how they felt on a scale of 1 to 5 Similar brain regions were activated when people felt the painful heat and saw photos of their exesvalidating the idea of emotional pain It’s real the study authors say and has a measurable effect on chemicals in the brain TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now Then the people in the study were given a nasal spray Half were told it was a "powerful analgesic effective in reducing emotional pain" while the other half were told the truththat it was a simple saline spray In subsequent MRI scans those who thought theyd inhaled a pain-relief spray reported less physical and emotional pain during the experiments Their brains also responded differently when shown photos of their exes: Activity increased sharply in brain regions involved in controlling emotion and decreased in areas associated with rejection Brain activity also increased in a region called the periaqueductal gray or PAG which helps control painkilling and mood-boosting neurochemicals like opioids and dopamine The authors say this is the first study to measure a placebo drugs impact on emotional pain from romantic rejection and it suggests that positive expectations may be enough to influence areas of the brain normally triggered by feel-good chemicals People may be able to use the power of expectation to their advantage they add "Beliefs and expectations matter in the sense that they influence our brain function and physiology as well as our feelings and decisions" says co-author Tor Wager professor of psychology and neuroscience at UC Boulder In other words if people believe that a certain remedy will help mend their broken heart theres a good chance it will "It might open your mind to noticing more positive aspects of your experience and give you a more optimistic outlook" he says Thats important because breakups can be some of the most emotionally negative experiences a person endures This type of social pain has even been associated with a 20-fold higher risk of developing depression in the coming year the study notes Steven Meyers professor and associate chair at Roosevelt University says one important feature of the study was that the participants had all been dumpedmeaning they werent just grieving the loss of their partner but also a loss of control over their relationship "Helplessness is one of the main feelings that worsen anxiety and depression" says Meyers who was not involved in the research The placebo nasal-spray treatments likely helped the participants feel they were taking steps to feel better he adds "A powerful antidote to worry or sadness is to take charge in your life in some way" Meyers suggests a few ways to take charge of your emotions after heartbreak Friends and family can be a source of support and distraction he says and seeking out connections can help you avoid isolation He also recommends keeping a journal for several days "Writing out feelings and thoughts allows people to purge distress from their system and has been shown to be a powerful intervention" he says Finally challenge negative thoughts with reason and evidence Meyers says "People can become more upset when they magnify their situation by thinking something like I’m going to be alone forever” he says "Although it can be hard to do writing out reasons why these thoughts may or may not be true can put things in perspective" Being intentional about these actions makes them even more effective says Meyers And if this new

News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsIt is not for nothing that Amit Shah –peggedas man-of-the-match by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his stellar role in winning 71 of the 80 seats from Uttar Pradesh in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections – has chosen the Samajwadi Party as BJP’s main rival in the upcoming UP Assembly elections In life you don’t get to choose your rival just as you don’t choose your own boss or your parents It’s destiny or circumstances in Darwinian language that decide everything for you BJP president Amit Shah Reuters You can at best do your own best And that’s all Like it or not it’s Mayawati’s BSP that is seen galloping ahead of others in an otherwise fluid scenario in UP at the moment There are compelling reasons why Amit Shah has made this statement deliberately First and foremost the BJP – which is essentially a right-wing Hindu outfit and Maulana Mulayam’s SP – which owes its sustenance primarily to the Muslim-Yadav vote bank happen to be the two ends of the same pole in a socio-religious divide To use the Marxist lexicon they have continuously been locked in a thesis/anti-thesis kind of relationship for over 25 years If one of the two rises the other one falls And if somebody else gains ascendancy in his or her quest for a synthesis both of them fall together To understand all this even better you need to look back into history And once you do this you will find that both the BJP and the SP registered meteoric rises only in the wake of the Ram Janmabhoomi Movement in the late 1980s Mulayam Singh became chief minister for the first time in 1989 Before this he had always lived under the shadow of the likes of Choudhary Charan Singh Chandrashekhar VP Singh Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna and so on Even after the VP Singh government fell at the Centre – thanks to the withdrawal of support by the BJP – Mulayam Singh continued on as chief minister in Lucknow with the support of Chandrashekhar’s Janata Dal And when Chandrashekhar’s government fell in New Delhi general elections were held The BJP replaced the SP and Kalyan Singh became chief minister at the peak of the Mandir Movement in 1991 In the post-Babri mosque demolition era the SP came back to power with the help of the BSP in 1993 Mulayam Singh’s second stint as chief minister lasted till June 1995 when his ally the BSP joined hands with the BJP to form a government together The game of musical chairs went on with new alliances and in the years that followed BJP’s Kalyan Singh Ram Prasad Gupta and Rajnath Singh adorned the chief minister’s chair for shorter periods with the support of allies Thereafter following a fluid post election scenario in 2002 the BJP and BSP again joined hands to form a government under Mayawati But the BJP pulled the rug from under the feet of Mayawati paving the way for Mulayam to become chief minister for the third time in 2003 It’s significant that both the SP and the BJP fared badly in the 2007 Assembly elections Mayawati had come on top by then and she formed a government on her own for full five years after a long time The 2012 elections saw the SP replacing the BJP And the point to be noted here is that the Modi wave swept across UP when the SP ruled Lucknow You can’t understand the riddle of the BJP getting as many as 71 of the total 80 Lok Sabha seats from UP under the shrewd stewardship of Amit Shah in 2014 unless you examine the situation that prevailed in North India in the aftermath of the Muzaffarnagar communal riots of 2013 It was obvious that a huge Hindu backlash had swept across UP and Mulayam Singh’s party which was at the helm of affairs in Lucknow couldn’t or didn’t as is alleged do much to lighten the surcharged atmosphere At least 62 people from both the communities lost their lives and hundreds of others were injured in what was described as “the worst communal flare-up in UP’s recent history” The army had to be called in The scars of this untoward incident are still fresh in public memory particularly in western UP You can now see why the BJP chose to launch its poll campaign from Saharanpur – a place that is quite close to Muzaffarnagar It was hardly surprising that the rally which was addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was a massive success This rally apart RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat shall be holding a major camp in Mulayam Singh’s political bastion in Etawah later this month And after this the BJP will hold its national executive meeting in Allahabad next month Everything has been planned meticulously Meanwhile the see-saw game between the BJP and the SP goes on The otherwise hostile statements and counter-statements that you hear from the players are to be taken with a pinch of salt Indeed With pre-poll surveys indicating a close fight between the two traditional rivals in the coming Assembly polls political parties in Kerala are taking their campaign to the Middle East where about 90 percent of the estimated 20 lakh Non-Resident Keralites (NRKs) live Though only about 15000 of these expatriates have registered their names in the voters’ list so far most parties consider even this small number crucial since the gap between the votes polled by the winner and loser in an election is mostly very thin in the state It was as low as 089 percent in the 2011 Assembly election in which 7512 percent of the total 229 crore voters cast their votes The Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) that came to power then with a wafer thin majority polled only 156 lakh votes more than the total votes secured by rival Left Democratic Front (LDF) Representational image AFP Candidates in many constituencies had razor thin victories A former minister scraped through by a margin of just 157 votes at Piravom in Ernakulam district The margin of victory in three other constituencies was less than 500 It was between 500 and 1000 votes in five constituencies and between 1000 and 5000 in 17 seats Parties count not just the registered NRK voters but also their family members who mostly go by the preference of their bread winners They think they can get the votes of the dependents by winning over the expats Therefore they are focusing more on the expats than their dependents in the state Even though many of the countries in the Middle East do no permit political activity all major parties are active in most of the countries through their cultural wings Some constituencies have even separate organisations in countries like Saudi Arabia UAE Kuwait Qatar and Oman which account for majority of overseas Keralites These organisations run the poll campaign through group meetings and conventions as in the state They also facilitate members to keep in contact with their dependents back home through text messages and telephones They ensure that their members telephone the family members in the morning on the polling day and convey their choice "Dependents of NRKs constitute a major chunk of the electorate in Kerala Assuming that each NRK has at least two dependents back home the number of votes the expats can influence comes to 40 lakh This is a huge number that can definitely influence the poll outcome" says P C Vishnunath Congress candidate at Chengannur in Alappuzha district Vishnunath who has run a personal campaign in Kuwait and Bahrain a month ago said the Overseas Indian Cultural Congress (OICC) the overseas wing of the party has been running a systematic campaign abroad under the supervision of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) targeting the dependents through their kin overseas "We also have Chengannur association in many countries in the Gulf I am keeping in constant touch with members of these organisations through social networking sites and mobile applications" Vishnuath told Firstpost Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) the second largest constituent of the ruling United Democratic Front (UDF) led by the Congress has also launched an aggressive campaign in the Middle East through the Kerala Muslim Cultural Centre (KMC) the overseas wing of the party Apart from canvassing votes of the family members of their members in the Gulf KMCC is also trying to take registered voters to the state for the voting They had operated chartered flights in the last Assembly and Lok Sabha elections for the purpose Party candidate P K Basheer who returned from a week-long campaign in Saudi Arabia said they were expecting more NRKs to come to the state for voting this time Many of them will be coming in advance and join the campaign he said adding that the NRKs were highly enthusiastic about the election "Those who are unable to come for the voting are keeping in touch with their family members and friends and urging them to vote for the UDF They are impressed by the developmental activities and various measures undertaken by the UDF government for the welfare of the expats" said Basheer who is contesting the election from Ernad constituency in Malappuram district His colleague Abdurahman Randathani who returned from a week-long campaign in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said that NRKs from his constituency had already started booking their tickets to come for the voting "We are helping them to do group booking so that they can get discounted fares My attempt is to bring all the registered

ring Top News When light flyweight boxer Sachin Siwach was learning the ropes at a local boxing academy his father Krishan a small-time farmer was worried about how he was going to afford fresh milk — an essential part of the diet the coach had prescribed The wheat the family produced at Mitathal village roughly 15km from Bhiwani was just enough to make both ends meet But with a little ingenuity and a stroke of luck Krishan found a cow that had wandered into the village When nobody came to claim the animal Krishan took it home From that day onwards his younger son got the nutrition he required Sachin won India’s first youth world championship gold since 2010 when he beat Cuba’s Jorge Grinan at St Petersburg And the story about how he got to drink fresh milk everyday though the family of four struggled to put two square meals on the table is also one about the fight against the odds Krishan was determined to make his son a boxer — just like his brother Vijender who was a junior India international as well So even before he turned 10 Sachin was admitted to Sanjay Sheoran’s academy “The coach told me that fresh cow milk would be an essential part of his diet along with almonds chickpeas fruits churma etc” Krishan says “I knew I could somehow manage almonds but I could not afford a cow” It was a year later that Krishan spotted the stray cow “I got her tested by a proper doctor who declared it was safe to consume her milk” Krishan says “So I now have a desi cow and a buffalo which I got around five years ago similarly” Krishan says the cattle is primarily used for his son’s diet But he sells rest of the milk and the money earned from is utilized in maintaining them and to meet Sachin’s other needs “Khana-peena humne karwaya Coach ne mehnat karwai Baaki gau maata hai (We took care of his diet coach focused on his training For the rest we have a cow)” he says Sachin now 17 joined Sheoran’s academy eight years ago This was the time when Bhiwani had shot into limelight as the country’s boxing hub following Vijender Singh and Akhil Kumar’s exploits at the Beijing Olympics The Bhiwani Boxing Club (BBC) was the epicentre Unlike hundreds of kids who joined the BBC during that wave Krishan decided to enrol his son at Sheoran’s club While the BBC boasts of a couple of proper boxing rings gym and other such facilities Sheoran’s academy is just a small piece of dusty pebble-laden land with dry wild grass “Char jhande mitti mein ghaad diye hai Bas wahi hai hamari ring” Sheoran says The academy was started by Sheoran’s father Hawasingh a Dronacharya award-winning boxing coach Hawasingh coached Krishan’s brother and Sachin’s uncle Vijender So to keep the tradition alive Sheoran’s club was chosen over BBC Sheoran says there aren’t many kids training at his centre which gave him the chance to focus on Sachin entirely It was only after a year after he started boxing that Sachin stepped into an actual boxing ring But months of training in the makeshift facility had made his legs stronger and movement faster It was a factor that was visible in the way he punched his way to gold in St Petersburg Russia Orthodox in his style Sachin was more of a counter-puncher At the junior national camp he was moulded into a much more attacking boxer That combined with his quick feet make him a thrill to watch “His side movement is good After landing a punch he is quick to move sideways to avoid getting counter-punched And at 5’6” he is taller than most of the boxers in his weight category So he uses that to his advantage by maintaining distance from his opponents” says Girish Pawar a member of India’s coaching staff at the youth worlds Sachin is only the third Indian after Nanao Singh (2008) and Vikas Krishan (2010) to win a youth world championship gold At the same venue last year Sachin had won the junior world championship bronze medal “So I was pretty confident going into the youth worlds Everyday I used to make a call back

Globally September and October are observed as prostate cancer awareness months Dr Balchandra Kashyapi onco-urologist Jehangir Hospital Pune said “With changing lifestyles and increasing life expectancy the rate of prostate cancer is growing rapidly in India But this trend has not accompanied a corresponding increase in the levels of awareness” Close to 70 per cent of all prostate cancers are diagnosed in men over the age of 65 Prostate cancer is the second-most common cancer in Indian males first being lung cancer It is the sixth most common cause of death “While we hear a lot of awareness on cardiac diseases and diabetes not much is talked about of prostate cancer Indians tend to ignore or misread the early symptoms of cancer which delay diagnosis and treatment until the problem becomes less amenable to medication Time is not far off when prostate cancer will become the most-common cancer among males in India” informed Dr Naresh Rao urologist Ratna Memorial Hospital Pune For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by MANOJ MORE | Aurangabad/pune | Published: April 7 2016 1:01 am Related News Photo for representational purpose AS MANY as 273 farmers have ended their lives in the drought-hit Marathwada region – primarily due to crop failure and mounting debts – in the first three months of this year Compared to first three months of 2015 when 214 farmers had ended lives 59 more farmers have died in the corresponding period this year The state Congress has reacted strongly to soaring suicides of farmers in Marathwada stating that it will grill the Devendra Fadnavis during the ongoing Assembly session on its failure to contain the surging farmers’ suicides in parched Marathwada In 2015 as many as 214 suicides of farmers were reported from the eight districts – Aurangabad Jalna Parbhani Hingoli Nanded Beed Latur and Osmanabad – of Marathwada In 2016 the figure has jumped to 273 in the first three months this year This year Aurangabad recorded 46 cases Beed (46) Nanded (38) and Latur (37) are the top four “suicide districts” Describing it as the biggest failure of the Fadnavis government state Congress Spokesperson Sachin Sawant said “The state government is trying to deflect the attention of the people from its failure on a number of fronts One of those is the unstoppable suicides of farmers by raking up issues which have got nothing to do with the development drought or large number of deaths of farmers The Congress will grill the Fadnavis government during the ongoing Assembly session” Sawant said Congress said the basic reason for the inability of the government to contain the farmers’ suicides is improper implementation of the schemes or dumping of unwarranted schemes on the farmers “Grandiose plans are announced but they are not implemented properly Then there are those plans which are not required but forced on the farmers In short farmers seem to be ending their lives as nothing is reaching them They continue to live in no man’s land” Sawant said adding the rise in suicides by farmers compared to last year reflects “how the so-called efforts and plans of the government have come a cropper” Kishore Tiwari who heads the state government-appointed Vasantrao Naik Sheti Swavlamban Mission and has been especially sent by the chief minister on a stock-taking mission in Marathwada on Wednesday said “I spoke to the farmers in Beed today to find out the problems they are facing I won’t say that everything is hunky dory There are problems but massive efforts are underway from the local administration to meet the expectations of the farmers” Tiwari said the large number of farmers suicides is basically due to the continuous drought of past three-four years “The problems have accumulated over the past few years Therefore it will take time for the scheme that we are implementing to show results” he said Tiwari said the state government has been shaken by the constantly rising of suicides by distressed farmers “The chief minister is disturbed by the suicides of farmers The government is very much concerned about it The government is doing all it could to put brakes to the suicide saga” he said Officials in Beed district however said last year the figure of suicides was almost double than what it is this year “Farmers’ suicides have certainly dipped in our district this year after implementation of the Food Security Act critical health care plan and distribution of financial assistance” said District Collector Naval Kishore Ram “We are getting to the root of the problems faced by the farmers We have succeeded in reducing the gaps between the administration and the farmers” Ram added MIM MLA Imtiaz Jaleel attributed the suicides to corruption in the government schemes which is being implemented in the name of farmers “Be it fooder scheme or cattle camp all these schemes are being implemented so that the contractors make money and from them officials benefit If the government cares to investigate its own plans it will come face to face about the true fate of its so-called plans and schemes meant ostensibly for the benefit of farmers” he said Tiwari however said “At least in Beed where I visited today I did not find anything amiss in the way the fodder scheme or cattle camps are being run” For all the latest Mumbai News download

As he spoke the smiling Horner walked past raising a finger to his nose and ‘cocking a snook’ through the glass of the hospitality unit before mimicking holding a mobile phone to his ear "I think he is a great driver He has incredible skill He is refreshing as a character He is spontaneous intelligent I’m a really big fan He’s just what the doctor ordered for Formula One" said Wolff of Verstappen "The last thing I want and last thing he will do anyway is to change his approach I didn’t say to move out of the way nor to race in any different way" Wolff said he had simply told Jos Verstappen he felt there was a "negative spin in some of the media" about his son’s driving that needed "to be counter-steered" for his own good Germany’s Rosberg has a 19-point lead over Hamilton and can take the title with a race to spare if he wins at Interlagos Germany:The United States and Russia struck an agreement Friday on a ceasefire in southwest Syria crowning President Donald Trump’s first meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin It is the first US-Russian effort under Trump’s presidency to stem Syria’s six-year civil war The ceasefire goes into effect Sunday at noon Damascus time according to US officials and the Jordanian government which is also involved in the deal Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who accompanied Trump in his meeting with Putin said the understanding is designed to reduce violence in an area of Syria near Jordan’s border that is critical to the US ally’s security US president Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin AP It’s a "very complicated part of the Syrian battlefield" Tillerson told reporters after the US and Russian leaders met for more than 2 hours on the sidelines of a global summit in Hamburg Germany Of the agreement he said "I think this is our first indication of the US and Russia being able to work together in Syria" For years the former Cold War foes have been backing opposing sides in Syria’s war Moscow has staunchly backed Syrian president Bashar al-Assad supporting Syrian forces militarily since 2015 Washington has backed rebels fighting Assad Both the US and Russia oppose Islamic State militants and say they’re focused on rooting out the extremist group The potential pitfalls for the ceasefire are clear — not least the challenge of enforcing it Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said Russian military police would monitor the new truce But Tillerson said that was still being worked out A senior US State Department official said the two countries were close to a deal on that issue and hoped to finalise it in the coming days raising the prospect it could take effect Sunday with no clear sense of who is policing it That the deal was announced before all the details were ironed out was a clear indication of how eager the US and Russia were to cast their leaders’ first meeting as a success Officials said the deal had been in the works for weeks or months but came together in time for the meeting The deal marks a new level of involvement for the Trump administration in trying to resolve Syria’s civil war Trump ordered some 60 cruise missiles to be fired at a Syrian air base in April after accusing Assad’s forces of a deadly chemical weapons attack But his top military and national security advisers pointedly said they had no intentions of intervening to oust Assad And they stopped short of endorsing Russian-led or UN peace mediation efforts between Assad’s government and rebel groups Israel also is part of the agreement one US official said who like others wasn’t authorised to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity Like Jordan Israel shares a border with the southern part of Syria and has been concerned about a spillover of violence as well as an amassing of Iranian-aligned forces in the south of the country Jordanian government spokesman Mohammed Momani confirmed the accord in a statement that made no reference to Israel’s participation Syrian government forces and its allies will stay on one side of an agreed demarcation line and rebel fighters will stick to the other side The goal is also to enable aid to reach this area of Syria Momani told state media US officials said the US Russia and Jordan had only agreed on that demarcation line last week clearing the way for a ceasefire to be worked out The deal is separate from an agreement that Russia Turkey and Iran struck earlier this year to try to establish "de-escalation zones" in Syria with reduced bloodshed The US wary of Iran’s involvement stayed away from that effort Follow-up talks this week in Kazakhstan were unable to produce agreement on finalizing a cease-fire in those zones Previous ceasefires in Syria have collapsed or failed to reduce violence for long and it was unclear whether this deal would be any better Tillerson said the difference this time is Russia’s interest in seeing Syria return to stability It’s an argument top US officials such as former Secretary of State John Kerry cited regularly amid his failed efforts to end a conflict that has killed as many as a half-million people contributed to Europe’s worst refugee crisis since World War II and allowed Islamic State to emerge as a global terror threat Tillerson also repeated the US position that a "long-term role for the Assad family and the Assad regime" is untenable and voiced his belief that Russia might be willing to address the future leadership of Syria in tones reminiscent of Kerry Up to now Assad has rejected any proposals that would see him leave power contributing to an impasse that has prolonged Syria’s suffering Earlier in the week Syria’s military said it was halting combat operations in the south of Syria for four days in advance of the new round of Russian-sponsored talks in Kazakhstan That move covered the southern provinces of Daraa Quneitra and Sweida Syria’s government briefly extended that unilateral ceasefire which is now set to expire Saturday — a day before the US and Russian deal was to take effect The US-Russian cease-fire has no set end date one US official said describing it as part of broader discussions with Moscow on lowering violence in Syria The agreement may also reflect Iran’s increasingly prominent role in Syria Washington has been resistant to letting Iranian forces and their proxy militias gain strength in Syria’s south a position shared by Israel and Jordan Friday’s deal could help the Trump administration retain more of a say over who fills the power vacuum left behind as the Islamic State is routed from additional territory in Syria In recent weeks US forces have shot down a Syrian aircraft that got too close to American forces as well as Iranian-made drones A renewed government offensive against Western-backed rebels and Islamic militants in the contested province of Daraa also is sparking tensions and Iranian-backed Hezbollah fighters have shifted south to join the fight Israel has also struck Syrian military installations on several occasions in the past few weeks after shells landed in the Israeli-controlled side of the Golan Heights Ahead of the deal media reports in Israel have suggested unease at any arrangement that relies on Russia policing areas near its frontier Implications for Syria aside the deal marks the biggest diplomatic achievement for the US and Russia since Trump took office Trump’s administration has approached the notoriously strained relationship by trying to identify a few limited issues on which the countries could make progress thereby building trust for a broader repair of ties China’s Nobel peace prize laureate Liu Xiaobo died on Thursday aged 61 after losing a battle with cancer authorities said more than a month after he was transferred to a hospital from prison Liu was the first Chinese citizen to win the Nobel Peace Prize and one of only three people to have won it while detained by their own government At the December 2010 Nobel ceremony in Oslo his statement titled "I Have No Enemies: My Final Statement" was read by an actress with an empty chair representing the imprisoned activist who was also known for his role in the 1989 Tiananmen pro-democracy protests Read the complete statement below: In the course of my life for more than half a century June 1989 was the major turning point Up to that point I was a member of the first class to enter university when college entrance examinations were reinstated following the Cultural Revolution (Class of ‘’77) From BA to MA and on to PhD my academic career was all smooth sailing Upon receiving my degrees I stayed on to teach at Beijing Normal University As a teacher I was well received by the students At the same time I was a public intellectual writing articles and books that created quite a stir during the 1980s frequently receiving invitations to give talks around the country and going abroad as a visiting scholar upon invitation from Europe and America What I demanded of myself was this: whether as a person or as a writer I would lead a life of honesty responsibility and dignity After that because I had returned from the US to take part in the 1989 Movement I was thrown into prison for "the crime of counterrevolutionary propaganda and incitement" I also lost my beloved lectern and could no longer publish essays or give talks in China Merely for publishing different political views and taking part in a peaceful democracy movement a teacher lost his lectern a writer lost his right to publish and a public intellectual lost the opportunity to give talks publicly This is a tragedy both for me personally and for a China that has already seen thirty years of Reform and Opening Up File image of Liu Xiaobo Reuters When I think about it my most dramatic experiences after June Fourth have been surprisingly associated with courts: My two opportunities to address the public have both been provided by trial sessions at the Beijing Municipal Intermediate People’s Court once in January 1991 and again today Although the crimes I have been charged with on the two occasions are different in name their real substance is basically the same – both are speech crimes Twenty years have passed but the ghosts of June Fourth have not yet been laid to rest Upon release from Qincheng Prison in 1991 I who had been led onto the path of political dissent by the psychological chains of June Fourth lost the right to speak publicly in my own country and could only speak through the foreign media Because of this I was subjected to yearround monitoring kept under residential surveillance (May 1995 to January 1996) and sent to ReeducationThroughLabor (October 1996 to October 1999) And now I have been once again shoved into the dock by the enemy mentality of the regime But I still want to say to this regime which is depriving me of my freedom that I stand by the convictions I expressed in my "June Second Hunger Strike Declaration" twenty years ago I have no enemies and no hatred None of the police who monitored arrested and interrogated me none of the prosecutors who indicted me and none of the judges who judged me are my enemies Although there is no way I can accept your monitoring arrests indictments and verdicts I respect your professions and your integrity including those of the two prosecutors Zhang Rongge and Pan Xueqing who are now bringing charges against me on behalf of the prosecution During interrogation on December 3 I could sense your respect and your good faith Hatred can rot away at a person’s intelligence and conscience Enemy mentality will poison the spirit of a nation incite cruel mortal struggles destroy a society’s tolerance and humanity and hinder a nation’s progress toward freedom and democracy That is why I hope to be able to transcend my personal experiences as I look upon our nation’s development and social change to counter the regime’s hostility with utmost goodwill and to dispel hatred with love Everyone knows that it was Reform and Opening Up that brought about our country’s development and social change In my view Reform and Opening Up began with the abandonment of the "using class struggle as guiding principle" government policy of the Mao era and in its place a commitment to economic development and social harmony The process of abandoning the "philosophy of struggle" was also a process of gradual weakening of the enemy mentality and elimination of the psychology of hatred and a process of squeezing out the "wolf’s milk" that had seeped into human nature It was this process that provided a relaxed climate at home and abroad for Reform and Opening Up gentle and humane grounds for restoring mutual affection among people and peaceful coexistence among those with different interests and values thereby providing encouragement in keeping with humanity for the bursting forth of creativity and the restoration of compassion among our countrymen One could say that relinquishing the "antiimperialist and antirevisionist" stance in foreign relations and "class struggle" at home has been the basic premise that has enabled Reform and Opening Up to continue to this very day The market trend in the economy the diversification of culture and the gradual shift in social order toward the rule of law have all benefitted from the weakening of the “enemy mentality" Even in the political arena where progress is slowest the weakening of the enemy mentality has led to an evergrowing tolerance for social pluralism on the part of the regime and substantial decrease in the force of persecution of political dissidents and the official designation of the 1989 Movement has also been changed from "turmoil and riot" to "political disturbance" The weakening of the enemy mentality has paved the way for the regime to gradually accept the universality of human rights In [1997 and] 1998 the Chinese government made a commitment to sign two major United Nations international human rights covenants signaling China’s acceptance of universal human rights standards In 2004 the National People’s Congress (NPC) amended the Constitution writing into the Constitution for the first time that "the state respects and guarantees human rights" signaling that human rights have already become one of the fundamental principles of China’s rule of law At the same time the current regime puts forth the ideas of “putting people first" and "Creating a harmonious society" signaling progress in the CPC’s concept of rule I have also been able to feel this progress on the macro level through my own personal experience since my arrest Although I continue to maintain that I am innocent and that the charges against me are unconstitutional during the one plus year since I have lost my freedom I have been locked up at two different locations and gone through four pretrial police interrogators three prosecutors and two judges but in handling my case they have not been disrespectful overstepped time limitations or tried to force a confession Their manner has been moderate and reasonable; moreover they have often shown goodwill On June 23 I was moved from a location where I was kept under residential surveillance to the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau’s No 1 Detention Center known as "Beikan" During my six months at Beikan I saw improvements in prison management In 1996 I spent time at the old Beikan (located at Banbuqiao) Compared to the old Beikan of more than a decade ago the present Beikan is a huge improvement both in terms of the "hardware" the facilities and the "software" the management In particular the humane management pioneered by the new Beikan based on respect for the rights an integrity of detainees has brought flexible management to bear on every aspect of the behavior of the correctional staff and has found expression in the "comforting broadcasts" Repentance magazine and music before meals on waking and at bedtime This style of management allows detainees to experience a sense of dignity and warmth and stirs their consciousness in maintaining prison order and opposing the bullies among inmates Not only has it provided a humane living environment for detainees it has also greatly improved the environment for their litigation to take place and their state of mind I’ve had close contact with correctional officer Liu Zheng who has been in charge of me in my cell and his respect and care for detainees could be seen in every detail of his work permeating his every word and deed and giving one a warm feeling It was perhaps my good fortune to have gotten to know this sincere honest conscientious and kind correctional officer during my time at Beikan It is precisely because of such convictions and personal experience that I firmly believe that China’s political progress will not stop and I filled with optimism look forward to the advent of a future free China For there is no force that can put an end to the human quest for freedom and China will in the end becomea nation ruled by law where human rights reign supreme I also hope that this sort of progress can be reflected in this trial as I await the impartial ruling of the collegial bench a ruling that will withstand the test of history If I may be permitted to say so the most fortunate experience of these past twenty years has been the selfless love I have received from my wife Liu Xia She could not be present as an observer in court today but I still want to say to you my dear that I firmly believe your love for me will remain the same as it has always been Throughout all these years that I have lived without freedom our love was full of bitterness imposed by outside circumstances but as I savor its aftertaste it remains boundless I am serving my sentence in a tangible prison while you wait in the intangible prison of the heart Your love is the sunlight that leaps over high walls and penetrates the iron bars of my prison window stroking every inch of my skin warming every cell of my body allowing me to always keep peace openness and brightness in my heart and filling every minute of my time in prison with meaning My love for you on the other hand is so full of remorse and regret that it at times makes me stagger under its weight I am an insensate stone in the wilderness whipped by fierce wind and torrential rain so cold that no one dares touch me But my love is solid and sharp capable of piercing through any obstacle Even if I were crushed into powder I would still use my ashes to embrace you My dear with your love I can calmly face my impending trial having no regrets about the choices I’ve made and optimistically awaiting tomorrow I look forward to [the day] when my country is a land with freedom of expression where the speech of every citizen will be treated equally well; where different values ideas beliefs and political views . can both compete with each other and peacefully coexist; where both majority and minority views will be equally guaranteed and where the political views that differ from those currently in power in particular will be fully respected and protected; where all political views will spread out under the sun for people to choose from where every citizen can state political views without fear and where no one can under any circumstances suffer political persecution for voicing divergent political views I hope that I will be the last victim of China’s endless literary inquisitions and that from now on no one will be incriminated because of speech Freedom of expression is the foundation of human rights the source of humanity and the mother of truth To strangle freedom of speech is to trample on human rights stifle humanity and suppress truth In order to exercise the right to freedom of speech conferred by the Constitution one should fulfill the social responsibility of a Chinese citizen There is nothing criminal in anything I have done [But] if charges are brought against me because of this I have no complaints Thank you everyone The entire text has been taken exactly as posted by the official
