Out of Aadhaar, NRIs face stumbling blocks

first_imgDespite clear directions from the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on the applicability of Aadhaar as an identity document, non-resident Indians (NRIs) are having a harrowing time in accessing government services and registering land deeds as the Revenue Department is insisting on the biometric identification number.UIDAI chief executive officer Ajay Bhushan Pandey recently issued an order after representations from NRIs, Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) and Overseas Citizens of India (OCIs) pointing out that they are being asked to produce Aadhaar to avail themselves of government benefits and services.Mr. Pandey had asked Central government departments and State governments as well as implementing agencies to keep in mind that Aadhaar as a document may be sought only from those who are eligible for Aadhaar and most of the NRIs, PIOs, OCIs may not be eligible for Aadhaar enrolment as per the Aadhaar Act of 2016.Read it at The Hindu Related Itemslast_img read more

Top 10 world records broken at Rio Olympics

first_imgAt the world’s biggest stage, what does an Olympic athlete want? A few are determined to better their previous records while the first timers look at getting exposure. However, a few among them stand out. It would not be about medals for them but about setting records. Decorated Olympians Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps have gone about setting and breaking their own records in the previous editions of the Summer Games. (Rio Olympics: Full Coverage)There was no dearth of world records at Rio 2016 either. On 23 occasions, athletes created history, went past the ‘best ever’ mark. And the Games didn’t have to wait long for the first world record to be broken as Korean archer Kim Woo-jin set one on the opening day.Here are the top 10 World Records set in Rio.Kim Woo-jin – Men’s Individual ArcheryThe Korean archer Woo-jin was in superior form in the rankings round of men’s individual archery on the opening day of Rio Olympics. He set a recurve record of 700 from a total of 72 arrows. With a maximum score of 720 at sight, Woo-jin shot 52 arrows in the 10 ring and his score never dropped below nine. However, Woo-jin missed out on a medal or even a top-ten finish after losing out to Ega Agatha in the Round of 16.Katie Ledecky – Women’s 400m, 800m freestyleIn Michael Phelps Olympic swansong, America found its new swimming champion in a 19-year-old girl. Katie Ledecky, the freestyle swimmer, bagged a total of four Gold medals and a Silver. And she did it in style in her second Olympic appearance. After winning a Gold in the 800m category in London when she was only 15, Ledecky grew stronger for Rio and set two World Records. (Is Phelps the most dominant swimmer in Rio? Think Again!)advertisementOn the second day of the Games, Ledecky became the fastest woman in the world to complete the 400m freestyle final with a timing of 3.56.46. (Ten reasons behind India’s shambolic show at Rio 2016)And the reigning Olympic champion of the 800m event didn’t disappoint. She defended her title in style with another World Record time of 8.04.79. The next best swimmer in the pool on that day touched the finish wall 11.38 seconds after Ledecky did.  Wayde Van Niekerk – Men’s 400mWayde Van Niekerk smashed a 17-year-old record of American Michael Johnson to clinch Gold in the men’s 400m event. The South African raced past defending champion, Grenada’s James Kirani, American sprinter Lashawn Merritt to complete the race just over 43 seconds. (Rio 2016: Brilliant Van Niekerk smashes 400m world record)Niekerk ran the first 200m at a breakneck speed which gave him the necessary advantage in the last part of the race. He also became the first man in the history of the Games to have won the 400m race after starting from lane 8.Almaz Ayana – 10,000mEthiopia’s Almaz Ayana broke a 13-year-old record to run her way to glory in the women’s 10,000m. She completed the race in 29:17.45 which was 14 seconds lesser than the previous record set by Chinese athlete Wang Junxia in 1993. (Rio 2016: Valerie Adams’ history bid falls short, Almaz Ayana smashes record)Kenyan Vivian Jepkemoi finished the race 15 seconds behind the leader Almaz and the the then defending champion finished in 2:42.56.   Adam Peaty – 100m breaststrokeGreat Britain swimmer Adam Peaty set and broke two World Records in a span of two days. And both the records were his own. In the 100m heats on the second day of the Games, Peaty, with a timing of 57.55 bettered his previous mark of 57.92 set in London on 17 April 2015.The following day in the final, the 21-year-old was expected to clinch the Gold. But the swimmer wasn’t willing to settle for just the Gold. He went after the clock and successfully broke the record he set the previous day with a timing of 57.13 in the final.Peaty finished his campaign with another medal, this time Silver, in the 4x100m medley.Anita Wlodarcyzk – Women’s Hammer ThrowIt was all a one-woman-show in the final of the hammer throw event in Rio. On August 12, Poland’s Anita Wlodarczyk made light work of her fellow competitors and clinched the Gold. Her best throw, 82.29, smashed the World Record. She toyed with her opponents by consistently coming up with 80m-plus throws. Notably, the 31-year-old woman is the only woman to have thrown the hammer further than 80m.  China’s Zhang Wenxiu, who finished second, fell short of the leader’s mark by 5.54m. Unbeaten since June 2014, Wlodarczyk now owns the 11 best throws of all time. Her winning margin was by far the largest in the history of the women’s event.advertisementCycling men’s Team Pursuit broken it twice – Great Britain Qualifying, FinalGreat Britain’s improved showing in Rio 2016 has much to do with their cycling athletes. And their men’s team in cycling team pursuit of Bradley Wiggins, Owain Doull, Steven Burke and Ed Clancy stole the show. On August 11, the four men, in the first round of the team event, clocked a combined timing of 3:50.570, which was better than their country’s London record of 3:51.659.The show wasn’t over there. Bradley, Owain, Steven and Ed came up with yet another spectacle in the final to edge out Team Australia 3:50.265, thereby bettering their own record to set another World Record.last_img read more

Yanks Back in 1st; top Jays 4-3

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares TORONTO, CANADA — Carlos Beltran hit a huge home run in the eighth inning, Andrew Miller escaped a big jam in the ninth and the New York Yankees stopped Toronto’s 11-game winning streak, beating the Blue Jays 4-3 Friday night.Miller struck out Ben Revere and Troy Tulowitzki with runners on second and third to close out the victory. The win moved the Yankees a half-game ahead of Toronto and back into first place in the AL East.David Price took a 3-0 lead into the eighth before New York rallied. He left after Chase Headley’s RBI double and Beltran then greeted reliever Aaron Sanchez (6-5) with a pinch-hit, three-run homer.Ivan Nova (5-4) wound up with the win. Dellin Betances pitched the eighth and Miller finished for his 26th save, fanning Tulowitzki to end a 12-pitch sequence.A one-out walk and single, plus a wild pitch by Miller with one out put the Blue Jays in position in the ninth.Tulowitzki kept fouling off pitches during the tense at-bat, which included several mound meetings between Miller and catcher Brian McCann. Tulowitzki swung and missed at a full-count pitch, silencing a sellout crowd at Rogers Centre.Toronto, which swept a three-game series in the Bronx last weekend while giving up a total of one run, had gone 33 innings without allowing a run to the Yankees broke through.That shutout streak is the longest the Yankees have gone without scoring against a single opponent, eclipsing 31-inning streaks against Detroit in 1934 and the Washington Senators in 1913.The Blue Jays failed to win a franchise-best 12th game for the fifth time in team history. Toronto has won 11 straight twice this season, also doing it in June.Price won with seven shutout innings at Yankee Stadium last weekend.

Blue Jays relievers hadn’t allowed a run since the ninth inning of an Aug. 2 win over Kansas City.All three Blue Jays runs came in the third. Tulowitzki hit an RBI grounder, Jose Bautista doubled home a run and Edwin Encarnacion hit a sacrifice fly.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: Manager Joe Girardi said DH Alex Rodriguez will likely sit out either Saturday or Sunday.Blue Jays: Encarnacion returned at DH after missing the previous four games with a sore left middle finger.last_img read more

UN electoral team arrives in Baghdad as Brahimi continues consultations

A United Nations electoral team arrived today in Iraq, where UN Special Adviser Lakhdar Brahimi continued his meetings with a broad spectrum of the country’s people.Mr. Brahimi met with members of the Iraqi Democratic Current, headed by Saad Saleh Jaber, and then held a discussion with representatives of a new political party called Iraq for the Iraqis, which brings together university professors, farmers, tribal leaders, journalists, student, judges and lawyers, according to a UN spokesman. The envoy also held talks with Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani and Dawa Party chief Ibrahim Al-Jafri. In addition, Mr. Brahimi met with Sunni clerics and prominent religious and civic leaders from Fallujah. “They welcomed Brahimi’s role and looked forward to cooperating with him with a view to finding solutions for the challenges facing Iraq today,” spokesman Fred Eckhard told reporters in New York.

Yemen Senior UN aid official appalled by airstrikes that kill women and

“The manner in which the parties to the conflict are waging this war is taking an unacceptable toll on the civilian population in Yemen and as illustrated by this most recent tragedy, women and children are paying with their lives,” said UN Humanitarian Coordinator Jamie McGoldrick in a statement. The statement, issued by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), said that health authorities confirm six women and a girl killed, as well as at least 15 other women injured, some gravely. Unfortunately, the number of dead could rise as the critically injured struggle to survive.“I am alarmed to see this tragic loss of life further escalate the fighting, with reports of a retaliatory ballistic missile strike into Saudi Arabia’s Asir region,” he said.This incident comes at a time of severe hardship and suffering in Yemen where imposed import restrictions are causing food scarcity and price hikes resulting in worsening food insecurity and malnutrition across the country.The economic decline caused by the conflict is leading to the collapse of basic service provision. Sana’a airport remains closed to commercial flights, limiting options for those who need this service to access life-saving medical care and restricting movements in and out of the country.“The people of Yemen have suffered long enough. Peace is the only solution to help end the suffering in Yemen,” he said, calling on all the parties to return to the negotiation table. In a separate statement on the incident, UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, stressed that every day, across Yemen, civilians are killed by indiscriminate attacks by all parties to the conflict on residential areas in complete disregard of the rules of international humanitarian law. “Attacks on civilians are unjustifiable, regardless of the circumstances. Women and children in particular have been subjected to unspeakable suffering in this brutal conflict. This should stop immediately,” he said, calling an all parties to adhere to their obligations under international humanitarian law and respect the sanctity of civilian life. Mr. Ould Cheikh Ahmed went on to note that the ongoing military clashes on the Red Sea coast are aggravating an already catastrophic humanitarian situation, with tens of thousands of civilians caught in the war zone without access to humanitarian assistance and unable to flee to safety. “The military activities in the region threaten to disrupt the import of commercial and humanitarian supplies which could have a terrible impact on the food security for large parts of the population,” he said, urging all parties to ensure the unhindered movement of commercial and humanitarian supplies, without which millions of Yemenis are at risk of death and famine. read more

Womens basketball Mitchells struggles lead to Buckeyes Big Ten tournament exit

Ohio State junior guard Kelsey Mitchell (3) facilitates the offense against Purdue during the Boilermakers’ 71-60 win against the Buckeyes at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on March 4. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorINDIANAPOLIS — As Ohio State junior guard Kelsey Mitchell goes, so goes the Buckeyes’ women’s basketball team. And the only place Mitchell and her team are going after Saturday afternoon’s game is home.On Friday, against Northwestern in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals, Mitchell led both teams with 27 points en route to a dominant 99-68 OSU victory. But in the following day’s game against Purdue, nothing went right for the Big Ten player of the year. Mitchell scored just nine points as she made 3 of 22 shots and just a single of her 12 3-point attempts, and OSU lost 71-60.“She didn’t have a good game,” said OSU coach Kevin McGuff. “She’s a spectacular player, one of the very best in college basketball, and tonight wasn’t her night.”The Buckeyes could not overcome their star’s struggles, as Purdue pulled off the 71-60 upset win, which knocked OSU out of the tournament and sent the Boilermakers to the final.The season low for the guard who averages 23.5 points per game picked up her second-lowest scoring total as a Buckeye, coming within a point of tying her career low of eight, set in 2015.The Boilermakers keyed in on the left-handed OSU guard’s proclivity to dribble to her dominant hand side.“We wanted to make her play on the right side of the floor,” said Purdue senior guard Ashley Morrissette. “They ran a couple plays where she got looks on the left side of the floor. But I thought, as a team, we did a great job of defending her.”This isn’t the first time the Boilermakers’ defense shut down Mitchell. In January, Purdue used a 1-2-2 zone defense to smother Mitchell, holding her to 14 points and making just 3-of-17 shots. But on Saturday, Purdue implemented a 2-3 zone defense. Purdue coach Sharon Versyp said the change was made due to OSU more frequently utilizing a two-guard lineup.“They executed and they trusted it and said, ‘Hey, let everybody else shoot the outside shot and just corrall her,” said Purdue coach Sharon Versyp.Versyp and Morrissette each noted the importance Purdue placed on surrounding Mitchell with two players at all times to keep her off balance.As a team, the Buckeyes shot just 34 percent from the field and made just 3 of 23 3-point attempts. OSU even struggled at the free throw line, with the Buckeyes making 7 of 15 from the charity stripe. “Once they got a lead, we seemed to get out of doing the things that we’ve done all year and (it) allowed us to be very efficient on offense,” McGuff said. “We were rushing shots and taking quick, contested shots instead of showing a little more patience and a little more trust in the execution.”In her six previous Big Ten tournament games, Mitchell averaged 29.8 points per game on 49 percent shooting.McGuff assuredly stated after Mitchell’s disappointing performance that no one is more likely to bounce back with authority than the OSU guard.“No one’s going to work harder, no one’s going to be in the gym more than she will,” McGuff said. “She’s going to make sure that her having an off night doesn’t happen again this year. I can assure you of that.” read more

Neftex Earth Model for better exploration understanding and prediction

first_imgMajor mineral discoveries are becoming harder to find, with declining grades and fewer expressed at the surface, so exploration is increasingly being driven deeper into the subsurface. This added geological uncertainty exposes explorers and investors to much greater financial risks.Exploration companies increasingly need to think temporally and spatially to have a better understanding of regional geology, deposit models and the drivers of mineralisation in order to effectively and efficiently explore for deeper and/or lower grade deposits. The exploration and mining industry can however benefit from the huge geoscience research budgets spent by the hydrocarbon sector who have been thinking along these lines and successfully exploring ‘deep and blind’ for a long time. Some of their well-developed techniques for global screening, regional understanding and project generation can be directly applied to aid mineral exploration.Neftex is a leading supplier of global geoscience Earth Model products and services to the resource exploration industry (including the oil super-majors). Its sophisticated and industry-leading Earth Model, which includes a global plate tectonic model, can be used to understandwhen and where mineral deposits formed, the distribution of mineral rich areas through time and their intimate connection with differing tectonic environments. The model provides the ability to understand and predict sedimentary basin infill, delineate and track volcanic arc activity, subducting margins, major collisional and inversion events as well as large intrusive events through time. The model can therefore provide a predictive framework and global road map for future mineral exploration.To support mineral exploration within the Earth Model Neftex has compiled a global, geologically focused, multi-commodity dataset of economic mineral deposits with an emphasis on the QA-QC of deposit locations, mineralization ages and geodynamic context. This rapidly expanding dataset currently contains over 20,000 deposit locations that are directly linked to relevant geoscience literature citations from the latest academic and industry sources.This spatial, temporal, tectonic and geological focus offers fresh insight into regional trends, deposit models and the drivers of mineralisation for known mineral deposits and can guide new exploration strategies and highlight where to go (in time and space) and what to expect, in terms of tonnage and grade, when you get there. Understanding these factors is vital to subsurface prediction and therefore, exploration success. (Image © Neftex)last_img read more

I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Read the Rylo camera preview $6 at Tidal See It Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) Sarah Tew/CNET The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Tags Comments DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) Sprint $210 at Best Buy $261 at Daily Steals via Google Express Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen.

It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) $155 at Google Express Best Buy Turo: Save $30 on any car rental $999 Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500.

Sarah Tew/CNET Turo Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. Read Google Home Hub review An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. See it Read Lenovo Smart Clock review Sarah Tew/CNET 50 Photos See at Turo TV and Movies,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

10 Things You Shouldnt Be Putting in Your Recycle Bin

first_img Around 90% of American households recycle these days, which is a great thing. There’s just one little thing that needs work.Well, one little thing in addition to getting that number up another ten points. Many of us are tossing things into our recycling bins that we shouldn’t.That’s a big problem because a few bad apples really can spoil the whole bunch. Contaminated items can cause an entire load of perfectly good recyclables to wind up in a landfill.AdChoices广告The solution is simple enough. We just need to be a bit more careful when we’re sorting.The Detroit Free Press recently spoke to some recycling industry insiders to find out what the most problematic items were. They compiled the top ten, and some of the entries may surprise you.For example, a lot of people don’t realize that tissue paper can’t be recycled, but it rounded out the Freep’s list along with paper towels.Plastic bags are on the list, too. They can get tangled in machinery and cause serious mechanical issues. They’re best left for dedicated bag recycling initiatives, dropped off at a participating store, or taken directly to a recycling center that accepts them.Your old garden hoses and extensions cords? They’re not meant for blue bins either. The same goes for wire clothes hangers in most areas, but many dry cleaners are happy to take them back for re-use… and that’s even better than recycling them.Other metal items can cause problems, too. Old auto parts may need to be taken to a scrap yard (where you may get a few bucks for them anyway) and you can probably take any old pots and pans you want to get rid of there, too.That retro-tastic stash of cassettes and VHS tapes you’ve been hoping might net you a tidy profit one day? When you finally decide to get rid of them, don’t put them with your recycling.Plastic utensils can’t be recycled, and neither can most cardboard pizza boxes. Not unless they somehow manage to stay grease-free while holding their delicious cargo.Styrofoam is another thing you should keep out of your bin, though that may change in the near future. A company in Montreal has figured out a way to turn polystyrene back into pellets that can be formed back into plastic.We’ve been able to make some amazing things from recycled products. Like chewing gum into sneakers, Nissan’s leaf battery solar kits, and wastewater that’s being turned into beer.
