Patna: Muslim cleric Maulana Wali Rahmani on Wednesday said mob lynching incidents in the country are like terror acts, and demanded strict punishment to accused. “Mob lynching incidents are like terror acts. It should be treated with seriousness and accused should be given strict punishment. Terror should not be permitted and accepted in any society,” said Rahmani, head of the Imarat-e-Sharia, a Muslim body in Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha. Referring to the recent lynching of a man in Jharkhand on June 24, Rahmani said that mere criticising and condemning the incident is not enough. He urged the central government as well as the state government to act against mob lynching without delay. Rahmani said Imarat-e-Sharia has decided to contest cases of victims of mob lynching in the court. He has appealed family members of victims of mob lynching to approach Imarat-e-Sharia to fight their cases.
New Delhi: Air India Assets Holdings Ltd (AIAHL) on Monday raised Rs 7,000 crore through bonds issue, which was oversubscribed. AIAHL is a special purpose vehicle of national carrier Air India. As part of efforts to clean up the balance sheet of Air India, which has a debt burden of more than Rs 58,000 crore, little over half of the amount is to be repaid by way of proceeds from the issuance of bonds by AIAHL. An Air India spokesperson on Monday said AIAHL’s bond issue with a three-year tenure of Rs 1,000 crore with a green shoe option of Rs 6,000 crore has been fully subscribed at 6.99 per cent. “The company received bids worth Rs 20,830 crore, which is the highest in the yield based bond market in the history of BSE. The company has decided to accept the entire issue of Rs 7,000 crore,” the spokesperson said. Last week, PTI reported that AIAHL would come out with its bonds issue worth Rs 7,000 crore on September 16.

If you travelled the length and breadth of the UK, you’d be met by a huge variety of dialects and words.From the Cockney rhyming slang in parts of London and Scouse accents in Liverpool, to entirely different languages in parts of Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Cornwall, there is incredible diversity in the way that British people speak.New data from Google Trends offers an insight into these regional variations. By looking at the most uniquely searched slang words in each city, we can see slang words that are only used in certain parts of the country.Localised slang words on the platform ranged from “snout” in Edinburgh, to “pony” in London and “rig” in Cardiff. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. It was the only city where the most popular slang word was a name for its own location – or even any location at all.Every other slang word represented a verb or a noun, varying from “snout” for cigarette, “prannock” for idiot or “rig” for face. Money-related slangTwo cities – Belfast and London – had money-themed slang as their most uniquely searched slang words. A “flim” in Belfast means £5, while Londoners use a “pony” to mean £25.While the true origin of a “pony” remains uncertain, some believe that – along with the phrase “monkey” for £500 – it came come from old Indian rupee banknotes which featured images images of animals.Brizzle or Bristol?Creatively, the key slang word for the people of Bristol is “Brizzle” – simply another way of saying the city’s name.
It told The Telegraph it will do all it can to ensure that people who want to be buried at Mount Vernon can still do so.“Where people have been fraudulently sold burial plots we will give them a genuine deed and ensure they can be buried at Mount Vernon,” said an archdiocese spokesman.The court heard how Henderson took cash in hand payments for burial plots at the cemetery, in the Liberton area of the city, that were in reality already occupied or had been previously sold.He altered official records to make it appear the plots were vacant and produced false documents purporting to be deeds showing ownership of the space.The court heard Henderson, who had been employed at the cemetery since 1997, had no authority to sell the plots, as they already contained remains, were either owned by others or were situated in common ground.Fiscal depute Aidan Higgins told the court one man bought a plot from Henderson for £850, but discovered a few weeks later that there might be a “difficulty” with the transaction.He said: “The deeds which had been provided by the accused were studied and found to be false.”The plot which had been sold was a real plot. The plot had been sold to another family in 1988 and was not therefore available for sale. Checks confirmed there was no record of the £850 payment.” The 46-year-old pleaded guilty to a single charge of fraud charge when he appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.The Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh said it “deeply regrets” the actions of the former employee.

William Henderson at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, where he pleading guilty to fraudCredit:CIARAN DONNELLY/LESLEY DONALD PHOTOGRAPHY In another case the family of Rose Webster only discovered the plot for which they had paid £400 lay on an access path when they visited her grave in the spring, after snow which had previously covered the area had melted.Sheriff Donald Corke, who heard the case, warned Henderson he faces a possible prison sentence when he returns to court in a month.Bailing him to an address in Midlothian he said: “This is clearly a very serious matter and you should be aware that although all options are available to the court custody is the most likely outcome.”Henderson’s actions were exposed after administrative changes at the top of the archdiocese uncovered suspicions of fraud in late 2014.Then, in January 2015, the Archdiocese received a complaint from an undertaker regarding a potentially fraudulent burial deed, leading to police being called in to investigate..Dr Elspeth Atkinson, the diocese’s chief operating officer said: “The archdiocese deeply regrets the criminal activities of Willie Henderson and has been working hard over the past months to offer both pastoral and practical support to those families affected by his actions and we will, of course, continue to do so in the months to come. “Families were exploited by him at a time when they were grieving and vulnerable. That’s why his crimes are so shocking.”Detective Chief Inspector Paul Grainger, who led the Police Scotland investigation, said: “William Henderson targeted vulnerable families when they were grieving and distressed.”His deception and exploitation led to Henderson amassing thousands of pounds from these families.” A crooked cemetery official made thousands of pounds by burying the dead on top of each other in a nine year campaign of fraud against grieving families.William Henderson also pocketed hundreds of pounds in cash after selling space that had been reserved by families for future use and in parts of the cemetery where burials were not allowed, such as footpaths and access routes.The former superintendent at Edinburgh’s Mount Vernon Cemetery admitted on Thursday fraudulently mis-selling burial plots to grieving families over a nine-year period.Henderson defrauded the archdiocese that runs the city’s only Catholic cemetery of thousands by illegally selling forged burial deeds.In one case the grieving family only realised their mother had been buried on an access path, following a winter funeral, when they visited her grave in spring, after melting snow had revealed its setting.Henderson’s criminal campaign involved 13 individual cases of fraud totalling more than £14,000, between 2006 and 2015. He sold plots for as much as £6,500, though in one case charged just £20.
In a victim impact statement, Mr Yamba said: “This incident has left me feeling very angry.”The idea someone has the audacity to attack my front door of my home address and target me in this way has affected me in a lasting way.”I’m now constantly on edge and worried about every little noise outside and it has affected my ability to sleep.”My son is very anxious about being alone and I can see this has worried him greatly.”The court heard that Dowd had “exercised his right to silence” in police interview, but the judge asked his solicitor for an explanation for his behaviour.Lorna Wincote, defending, said: “The facts are fully accepted. There’s no issues with regard to any drugs or alcohol, there’s some suggestion of some underlying mental health issue, because there is no other underlying explanation.”The court then heard from an “intervention team” nurse based at the court, who said that, having spoken to the defendant in the cells, there was evidence of issues of depression and anxiety.She also said Dowd “acknowledged a level of compulsivity” and regarded what he had done as a “completely stupid act” without any explanation. A man who daubed “No Blacks” on the home of a family from Africa has been remanded in custody “for his own protection” before he is sentenced next month.Vaughan Dowd, 54, painted the front door of the home of Jackson Yamba, 38, just five days after he moved from a neighbouring block to the same flats where the defendant lived in Irlams o’ th’ Height in Salford, Greater Manchester.After seeing the graffiti as he and his young son, left home, the youngster became tearful and Mr Yamba said the attack had left him fearful and angry.Dowd, who lived close to the Yambas in Irlam Square, covered his face during the attack but was caught by the CCTV installed in the flats and by police checking the record of key-fob entries to the housing association apartment block, Manchester Magistrates’ Court heard.He pleaded guilty to a single count of racially aggravated criminal damage on February 8 and was remanded into custody for sentence on March 21.District Judge Mark Hadfield told him: “I’m satisfied a remand in custody is necessary for your own protection.”Prosecutor Ann Deakin said a possible bail address in south Manchester for Dowd was inappropriate because of the “ethnic diversity” of the area, adding: “There’s a clear risk to the defendant’s safety. “Greater Manchester Police has received complaints from America – that’s how far it’s gone viral about the victims being abused in this way.”The judge said the maximum sentencing powers of a magistrates’ court, of six months in jail, were insufficient to deal with the case.The case only came to light after Mr Yamba, 38, a solicitor who came to the UK from the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2006, tweeted a photo of his front door and complained that no police officers had been to see him after he reported the attack.

It led to outrage online, and an apology and prompt response to the tweet from Greater Manchester Chief Constable Ian Hopkins.Ms Deakin, prosecuting, told the court the victim and his son were leaving for work and school on the morning of February 8 when they discovered the graffiti.The youngster said: “Daddy, something is written on the door.”Ms Deakin continued: “Mr Yamba looked and saw painted on his brown wooden front door was ‘No Blacks’ twice. This was underlined.”Mr Yamba is described as being shocked and distressed and his son was becoming upset.”The same graffiti was also daubed in the same white paint on an internal communal door and the entry door to the block of flats.

http://www.broadsheet.ie/2014/01/29/staying-in-tomorrow-night-3/ A DONEGAL WOMAN has been convicted of animal cruelty and told that she cannot keep dogs for two years.The ISPCA said that the Donegal woman was convicted of animal cruelty at Letterkenny District Court today.ISPCA Inspector McGinley said of the dogs that were found by him at the woman’s property: These dogs were as emaciated as any I have seen in my 14 years with the ISPCA. It is important that those responsible for such severe cruelty are held accountable to send out the message that it will not be tolerated.The Donegal woman submitted a guilty plea through her solicitor Frank Dorrian, said the ISPCA.They said that the case is related to a call made by ISPCA Inspector Kevin McGinley and Gardaí to the woman’s address on 15 January 2013, when two emaciated boxer dogs were discovered.The ISPCA said that the dogs were two-year-old brothers and were named Oscar and Elmo by rescuers. The canines were surrendered into the care of the ISPCA and taken for veterinary treatment.BannedThe ISPCA said that Judge Paul Kelly banned Gallagher from keeping dogs for two years.He also adjourned the matter until 9 June for final sentencing.It was noted in court that the ISPCA had incurred costs of €652.26.When Oscar and Elmo were rescued, the vets who examined them gave them a body score of just one out of five.The duo went on to make a full recovery at the ISPCA’s National Animal Centre and were later rehomed.Read: Hay drive begins to help save “deluge” of dumped horses>Read: Nine dogs saved from death>
58 Comments By Associated Press Tuesday 6 Dec 2016, 10:30 PM We are currently under contract for $170 million to help determine the capabilities of these complex military aircraft that serve the unique requirements of the president of the United States. We look forward to working with the US Air Force on subsequent phases of the programme allowing us to deliver the best planes for the president at the best value for the American taxpayer.The $170 million (about €158 million) figure is just for a portion of the research and development efforts.Trump now uses his own plane, a Boeing 757, which he has outfitted with white leather and gold, a large flat-screen television and a bedroom. But as president it is expected that he will travel aboard the Air Force jet, which is equipped with special safety, defensive and communications equipment. Air Force One also has seating for reporters; Trump generally does not allow the press on his own plane.Trump will tonight use his own 757 to travel to the second stop of his post-election ‘thank you’ tour in North Carolina.Read: Man arrested at Stansted Airport on suspicion of ‘preparing for a terrorist act’Read: Veteran British actor and Game of Thrones star Peter Vaughan dies aged 93 The government has contracted with Boeing to build two new planes which would go into service around 2024. That means Trump might never fly on the aircraft, which carry US presidents around the globe.The Air Force has pressed for a faster schedule, saying the aging current Boeing 747s are becoming too expensive to repair and keep in good flying shape. The contract for developing and building new planes was to be about $3 billion (about €2.8 billion), but costs are reported to be rising. 30,709 Views Source: Evan Vucci AP/Press Association ImagesThe General Accountability Office estimated in March that about $2 billion (about €1.8 billion) of the total — for work between 2010 and 2020 — was for research and development, not the actual planes. The inflated $4 billion (about €3.7 billion) figure Trump cited appears to include operation and maintenance as well.Trump’s tweet came 22 minutes after The Chicago Tribune posted a story in which the Boeing CEO voiced concerns about Trump’s views on trade.The president-elect then descended to the lobby of the Manhattan skyscraper that bears his name to reiterate his case.His own 757Trump had tweeted in 2013 that he owned Boeing stock, but a spokesman today said he sold all of his stock holdings in June. That sale was not publicised by the campaign at the time, and aides did not reveal how much cash it might have generated.If Trump had held onto his stock portfolio, he would have been required to repeatedly file reports with the US Office of Government Ethics.

Extremely Rare, Two-Colored Lobster Found in MaineNew Species of Giant Flying Reptile Identified By Scientists Fossilized bones that appear to have been digested by crocodiles in the Cayman Islands have revealed three previously undescribed extinct mammals that roamed the island more than 300 years ago.The ancient remains were collected from caves, sinkholes, and peat deposits on the Cayman Islands between the 1930s and the 1990s, and belonged to two large rodents Capromys pilorides lewisi and Geocapromys caymanensis, and a small shrew-like mammal named Nesophontes hemicingulus, according to research led by Zoological Society of London (ZSL), the American Museum of Natural History, and the New Mexico Museum of Natural History.The three mammals were unique to the Cayman Islands, existing nowhere else in the world. The scientists calculated that they would have probably become extinct around the 1700s, likely due to the arrival of European settlers and introduced mammals such as rats, cats, and dogs.Capromyid or hutia fossils that were found digested by Cuban crocodiles, found in Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, Grand Cayman. (Photo Credit: New Mexico Museum of Natural History)“Humans are almost certainly to blame for the extinction of these newly described mammals, and this represents just the tip of the iceberg for mammal extinctions in the Caribbean,” said Professor Samuel Turvey, Senior Research Fellow at ZSL’s Institute of Zoology, and co-author of the paper, which was published today in the Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History.Nearly all the mammal species that used to live on these tropical islands, including all of the native Caribbean sloths and monkeys, have recently disappeared, according to Turvey.The state of the teeth and bones for three of the specimens — enamel, dentine and cement were found to be missing from portions of the teeth that would be been exposed above the gum line — indicates that they were digested by crocodiles.Animals described as “coneys” and “little beasts like cats” by Sir Francis Drake when he visited the Cayman Islands in 1586 were probably the now-extinct and newly described rodents Capromys or Geocapromys, according to the scientists.Scientists uncovering the fossils more than 30 years ago in Grand Cayman Cave. (Photo Credit: NMMNH)“With only one possible sighting early in the course of European expansion into the New World, these small mammals from the Cayman Islands were complete unknowns until their fossils were discovered. Their closest relatives are Cuban; how and when did they manage a 250-km journey over open water?” asked Professor Ross MacPhee from the American Museum and a co-author of the study.One possibility is that the Cayman Islands may have originally been colonized by mammals carried across from nearby Cuba on floating rafts of vegetation, which in some cases have been documented to float as far as 62 miles in less than a week.Researchers hope the findings can help further conservation efforts focused on island species.“It’s vitally important to understand the factors responsible for past extinctions of island species, as many threatened species today are found on islands,” said Turvey.” The handful of Caribbean mammals that still exist today are the last survivors of a unique vanished world and represent some of the world’s top conservation priorities.”More on Geek.com:Scientists Discover Fossils of Oldest Known Frog in North AmericaSix New Species of ‘Superhero’ Catfish Discovered in Amazon‘Astonishing’ New Tarantula With Bizarre Horn on Its Back Discovered in Angola Stay on target

Manchester United has joined the race to secure Willian transfer after Brazil’s exit from the World Cup, according to The Sun.The winger is also a subject of interest from Barcelona and the Spanish club saw a transfer bid for the player rejected by Chelsea.The Brazilian is believed to be the number one target of Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and the former English champions are hoping to pip Barcelona to his signature.The duo worked together at Chelsea after Jose signed Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer of 2013.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…Willian is reportedly considering his future at Stamford Bridge and the understanding is the winger will decide to leave should Antonio Conte remain as Chelsea manager.Willian, 29, was one of the few bright sparks in an otherwise lacklustre showing by Brazil at the World Cup in Russia.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 7, 2016 -The seventh annual Green Aruba Conference, held at the Marriott Resort & Stellar is Casino in Aruba during the week of November 15, served as an exceptional platform to showcase Aruba’s progress in sustainable energy transition, a process which began since 2004. This conference provided an ideal opportunity for countries, institutions and experts from all over the world to share valuable information, knowledge, experiences and best practices.Energy Analyst – Ms. Sparkle Prentice participated as a mentee of the Women in Renewable Energy (WIRE) network, an initiative of the Clinton Climate Initiative, connecting women energy leaders from islands worldwide, providing up-to-date information on the status of women in the energy industry and highlighting women doing world-changing work. Ms. Prentice was one of ten women selected as a WIRE Mentee who will benefit from one-on-one mentoring, sharing goals, successes and learning opportunities to develop personal leadership styles and refine tools to progress and excel; thereby achieving professional and personal goals in a male-dominated energy industry. At the Green Aruba Conference, as a WIRE Mentee, Ms. Prentice participated in the panel discussion, “Islands as Leaders in the Evolving Energy Portfolio: The Opportunities and Challenges.” Ms. Prentice spoke about island governments working to create and reform policies that benefit utilities, government, industry and residents, as well as the opportunities or incentives that can be offered to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. She was joined in Aruba by her 2 WIRE Network Ambassadors, Juliet Carvalhal and First Lady of Aruba, Doina Eman Neagoy, as well as other WIRE Network Ambassadors and mentees from Jamaica, St. Lucia, Anguilla, US Virgin Islands and San Andres. Ms. Prentice also participated in the WIRE Mentor Network sessions on leadership, self-awareness, and realizing and embracing power and influence.Energy and Utilities Commissioner – Malike Cummings was a speaker on the first day of the Green Aruba Conference, presenting on the topic, “Energy Sustainability and the Regulator.” He addressed the emerging role of the regulator in promoting sustainable energy, and underscored the increasing complexity and challenges the implementation of sustainable energy brings to the role, function and duty of the regulator, especially in small Caribbean markets. The involvement of the regulator in policy development is fundamentally important in order to contribute and transfer knowledge to the process, and to ensure processes are transparent and actions predictable in order to minimize risks and transaction costs, and instill and reinforce investor confidence in renewable energy initiatives.Cummings also spoke to the many regulatory challenges, namely; having to justifying the value of benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives, which are realizable in the long term, against relatively high costs that must be borne in the short term; the challenge of managing special interests to minimize regulatory capture; dealing with archaic legislative and regulatory frameworks and the challenges of modernizing them; and the coordinating role of the regulator with relevant departments and agencies to minimize conflicts, duplication of efforts and delays in the successful and effective implementation of renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives. He also spoke about the pivotal role of the Regulator in the Integrated Resource Planning for the electric utility, to ensure a least cost energy mix and acquisition of assets. Fundamental to the successful execution of the regulator’s duties is the adequate allocation of resources, especially in this increasingly complex and emerging energy sector, where roles, tasks and functions continue to accrete, Cummings elaborated.

Tucson closer to having network of electric-car chargers Is Chicago leading the way for solar-powered EV charging stations? When you think of advances in making electric vehicles easier to use, you do not normally think of Chicago. San Francisco or Portland often come to mine. Both cities are working to install EV charging stations throughout the city in order to make “filling up” with electricity almost as convenient as filling up with gasoline. But Chicago has gone one better. Not only will Chicago provide EV charging stations, but the city will do so using renewable energy. Solar power will be used to provide electricity, negating the need for fossil fuels altogether if you drive an electric vehicle in the Windy City.There is a tree-like canopy that holds the solar panels. These panels collect the sun’s light and facilitates the transformation into electric energy. Storage of the electricity is underground. The station was built by Carbon Day Automotive. The company hopes that other cities will follow suit, allowing them to build solar-powered EV charging stations for other American cities.For now, the City of Chicago is likely to be the biggest user of the EV station. The city has a fleet of electric cars, and the charging station will be used daily to make sure that the cars have the electricity that they need. It’s a great idea, and proof that innovation and technology can move us into a more sustainable future — one that doesn’t require fossil fuels to keep us going.© 2009 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (PhysOrg.com) — One of the biggest arguments that some have made against plug-in electric vehicles is that they still promote the use of fossil fuels. When you have to plug in a car for a charge, the electricity used to charge the battery often comes from a power plant that gets its energy from oil. Chicago is hoping to change that as it becomes the first city to install an electric vehicle (EV) charging station powered with solar energy.

Losing just a couple hours of sleep at night makes you angrier, especially in frustrating situations, a study has found. Other studies have shown a link between sleep and anger, but questions remained about whether sleep loss was to blame or if anger was responsible for disrupted sleep, said Zlatan Krizan, a professor at Iowa State University in the US. The research answers those questions and provides new insight on our ability to adjust to irritating conditions when tired. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Despite typical tendencies to get somewhat used to irritating conditions – an uncomfortable shirt or a barking dog – sleep-restricted individuals actually showed a trend toward increased anger and distress, essentially reversing their ability to adapt to frustrating conditions over time. No one has shown this before,” Krizan said. Study participants were randomly split into two groups: one maintained their normal sleep routine and the second restricted their sleep by two to four hours each night for two nights. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThose who maintained averaged almost seven hours of sleep a night, while the restricted group got about four and a half hours each night. The difference reflects sleep loss we regularly experience in everyday life, Krizan said. To measure anger, researchers had participants come to the lab – before and after sleep manipulation – to rate different products while listening to brown noise or white noise. Krizan said the purpose was to create uncomfortable conditions, which tend to provoke anger. “In general, anger was substantially higher for those who were sleep restricted. We manipulated how annoying the noise was during the task and as expected, people reported more anger when the noise was more unpleasant,” said Krizan. “When sleep was restricted, people reported even more anger, regardless of the noise,” he said. It is well established that sleep loss increases negative emotions, such as anxiety and sadness, and decreases positive emotions, such as happiness and enthusiasm, Krizan said. Researchers measured these effects to more generally understand the relationship between sleep, anger and emotions. They also tested whether subjective sleepiness explained more intense feelings of anger. Sleepiness accounted for 50 per cent of experimental effect of sleep restriction on anger, suggesting individuals’ sense of sleepiness may point to whether they are likely to become angered.
