New cattle trade rules rattle Punjab farmers

first_imgFarmers and cattle traders in Punjab, who are yet to recover from the losses caused by the Central government’s demonetisation decision, are fearing yet another period of distress following the new rules on prevention of cruelty to animals framed by the Centre.At the Khanna cattle market (mandi), about 70km from the State capital Chandigarh, the anxiety of losing business is palpable among farmers, traders and cattle rearers, who strongly believe that if the new rules are implemented they will hit the farmers, while the traders would suffer eventually.“Cattle trade is already down by nearly 30% since the notification of new rule has come out. Last year, we had taken the annual tender for trading cattle across Punjab at Rs.51.57 crore, which will end this month. The new tenders have been invited, but with the business falling we are seriously thinking of opting out,” Amarjit Singh, a senior partner at the Rajpura Cattle Fair Traders, which manages the cattle trade business at nearly 62 big and small (mandis) markets in the State, told The Hindu.Drop in business“Today (June 15), nearly 2,200 buffaloes and cows have been brought to the mandi while during last two-three months the average figure was between 2,800 and 3,000. This itself is indicative of the drop in business,” he says, adding that many farmers and dairymen, especially those involved in inter-State cattle trade, are reluctant to continue with their business because of the growing number of vigilante groups.Delhi-based Raj Kumar, who has been in the dairy business for over 30 years, said travelling with cattle in a truck has become a risky affair these days. “Earlier I used to travel in the truck with the cattle, but now a days it’s only the driver who transports them (cattle). The so called “vigilante groups” misbehaved with me recently, when I was on my way to Delhi from Jaipur,” he said. “Since then I travel separately,” he added.Still unawareIn cattle trade for over four decades, Ikhlaq, hailing from Shamasabad in Agra, is unaware of the new cattle rules. “I don’t know anything about the new rules. I have hardly faced any problems in this business all these years, but for the harassment at the hands of the police at times,” he said as he loaded the nine buffaloes he bought from the mandi onto a truck.Punjab, one of the country’s leading States in cattle breeding and trade, has a flourishing Rs.2500 crore dairy business, according to the State government data.Manmohan Singh, a partner at Rajpura Cattle Fair Traders, said dairy farming is a big business in Punjab and it cannot be allowed to suffer as a result of the new rules.“The new rules would prove disastrous for farmers, who are already reeling under severe crisis as a result of the huge debt burden. The State government should, in fact, come to the rescue of farmers and traders. This year’s tender for managing cattle trading should be put on halt till the issue is resolved,” he added.The Ministry of Environment had on May 23 issued a notification pertaining to new rules on ‘Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017’, under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.Prashant Govind, a farmer from Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar village, has already started to prepare himself for the new rules. “What can we do if the government will implement this decision? We will have to follow.” “I have been selling cattle in case of urgent need of money. If I am not able to sell it in future then it will only add to my distress,” he added.Sandeep Kumar, another trader, said that new rules such as making it compulsory for a person to possess farm land in order to buy and sell cattle would adversely hit the business. “There are so many landless farmers who are involved in dairy farming. Where will they go? They will be doomed,” he said.Ashok Kumar of Delhi-based Goyla Dairy, who returned empty-handed on Thursday, cited less number of cattle at the mandi as the reason for “no-deal”.last_img read more

Frank Lampard Says Chelsea’s Misfiring Strikers will Come Good

Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. London: Frank Lampard insists Chelsea’s misfiring strikers will rediscover their touch in front of goal.Lampard’s forwards are still waiting for their first Premier League goal this season after midfielder Mason Mount netted in last weekend’s draw with Leicester. Neither Tammy Abraham or Olivier Giroud scored in the opening defeat at Manchester United, while Michy Batshuayi has yet to feature.Lampard has no options to change his forward line with Chelsea serving a transfer ban.France veteran Giroud did score in Chelsea’s European Super Cup loss to Liverpool in Istanbul and Lampard is confident his forwards will come good, starting at Norwich on Saturday.”As I said before, if we’d have been more clinical in front of goal we possibly could have had three wins,” Lampard told reporters on Friday.”The competition is there and that’s the challenge for the strikers.”I’ve got no problems with their attitude and training. We work hard on the training ground as a team to create and also to finish. I used to love practising my finishing in training.”What I have got is great attitude in the three strikers. But others in the squad also always want to stay out, want to work harder.STAY POSITIVE”Tammy’s shot goes in off the post against United, different story for him, different story for the game. But we can’t get too down about that, we’ve got to stay positive and it will come.”We’ve got some great attacking players here and it will come.”Belgium striker Batshuayi scored twice in Chelsea development squad’s 3-0 win over Liverpool earlier this week, but is still working towards full match fitness.Lampard praised the 25-year-old’s showing in the reserves, insisting Chelsea need him to contribute at first team level this season.”I thought it was a good performance and he got the fitness work he needed out of the game,” said Lampard.”It was two good goals; two very good finishes. He worked hard and that’s exactly what the game was for.”We need Michy, we need the competition up front. I thought the team performance was really good.” Chelsea head to Norwich with Lampard also hoping France midfielder N’Golo Kante can shake off an ankle sprain.Antonio Rudiger is not ready to feature this weekend as he closes in on a return after long-term knee trouble.Pedro missed training earlier in the week but was rested after a hectic fixture schedule and is expected to be fit to take on the Canaries.”Kante has got an injury he has carried all week, so we’ll assess that over the next 24 hours,” Lampard said.”Rudiger’s not fit yet, hopefully for next week. That’s the only changes from where we were last week. chelseaFrank LampardNorwich CityPremier League First Published: August 24, 2019, 1:11 PM ISTlast_img read more

Olympiakos Falls To Kutxa, 89-70

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares PIRAEUS – Olympiakos’ unbeaten run in the European League basketball tourney ended with a stinging 89-70 loss to the Spanish team Laboral Kutxa on Nov. 27.Despite the loss, the Greek team remains the favorite to clinch the top spot in its pool and advance deeper into the tourney. It won the title in 2012 and 2013.Olympiakos wasn’t into this game though as the Spanish team led 24-17 after one and 44-37 at the half before going on a 22-9 tear in the third period that put it out of reach, holding a 68-52 lead.Playing poor defense and shooting even worse, the Reds couldn’t get back into it as the winners lead grew to 87-66 and it wasn’t seriously challenged.Olympiakos captain, sharpshooter Vassilis Spanoulis, had 27 points, lifting him to fourth place on the list of all-time scorers in Euroleague competition. He also briefly played for the Houston Rockets in the NBA but wasn’t a factor.last_img read more

Virat Kohli booed at Edgbaston, responds with epic Test hundred

first_imgVirat Kohli was booed on Thursday as he walked out to bat on the second day of the first Test against England at Edgbaston. Kohli had mocked Joe Root with a mic drop celebration on Wednesday after running the England skipper out with a direct hit and the Edgbaston faithfuls were perhaps having a go at the Indian captain.It had all started when Root did the mic drop act after helping England win the ODI series with his second successive hundred. Kohli returned the favour when he ran out Root on the opening day of the five-Test series.Root’s dismissal triggered a familiar England collapse and the hosts eventually folded for 287.READ – Virat Kohli takes a few hours, buries the demons of 2014 England tourKohli, who had had a miserable Test series in England four years ago, was in focus when he walked out to the crease at the fall of India’s second wicket in the 14th over. There were loud boos across the ground but Virat Kohli was determined to play one of the greatest Test innings in history.Virat Kohli being booed to the crease… Kiss blowing and mic drop celebration yesterday remembered by the crowdNick Hoult (@NHoultCricket) August 2, 2018Virat Kohli being booed. You’ll pay for it, Edgbaston.Nikhil (@CricCrazyNIKS) August 2, 2018READ – Virat Kohli slams 1st Test hundred in England, dedicates it to Anushka SharmaEven as he lost partners at the other end, Kohli kept his composure, leaving balls outside the off stump, and scoring runs whenever he got the opportunity.advertisementKohli’s hundred at Edgbaston came in dramatic circumstances, but was historic. Kohli scored his fourth hundred against England in Test cricket – the previous three had been scored in India. Kohli also became only the second Indian to score a hundred in his first Test innings as captain in England. Mohammad Azharuddin (121) had done it first back in 1991.READ – India vs England 1st Test: Virat Kohli’s 149 leaves series opener wide openIshant Sharma became the 9th Indian wicket to fal with Kohli on 97. He was then on strike to Ben Stokes and there was a loud appeal for a catch behind the wickets when he was on 97. However, only Jonny Bairstow seemed interested while Stokes did not even go up in appeal.In the fifth ball of the over, Kohli hit a boundary to bring up his maiden Test hundred in England and took his wedding run out and kissed it, dedicating the hundred to wife Anushka Sharma.Kohli was the last man to fall for India but not before he had scored an epic 149 which was studded with 22 fours and one six.READ – Best batsman on planet: Cricket world pays tribute to Virat KohliEarlier, Root had said Kohli’s mic drop added some humour to the series. England opener Keaton Jennings had also said he was cool with Kohli’s celebration.Root felt that Kohli’s actions spice things up in the series and make it entertaining.READ – Joe Root sees humour in Virat Kohli’s ‘mic drop’ act”I actually think it adds to the whole spectacle of Test cricket, it gives a bit of humour to it, and it makes for a very entertaining series for something like that to happen so early on, so we’ll see how things pan out over the course of the five test matches,” Root told Sky before the second day’s play.Root’s teammate and England opener Keaton Jennings also weighed in on the issue and said that he is completely ‘cool’ with Kohli’s actions.”It’s fine. Everybody is entitled to celebrate how they want to. He celebrated, and that’s cool,” Jennings said at the end of day’s play.last_img read more

We know the qualities of Belgium, a fantastic, powerful team with very creative players. It will be a great test.”We know the team because we have a plan designed to have players ready for every game at the World Cup. Our strategy has made us champions of Europe.

Too many in Congos Ebola outbreak are dying at home

first_imgBeni (Congo): Two-month-old Lahya Kathembo became an orphan in a day. Her mother succumbed to Ebola on a Saturday morning. By sunset her father was dead, too. They had been sick for more than a week before health workers finally persuaded them to seek treatment, neighbours said. They believed their illness was the work of people jealous about their newborn daughter, a community organizer said, and sought the guidance of a traditional spiritual healer. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe Ebola outbreak in eastern Congo is ravaging Beni, a sprawling city of some 600,000, in large part because so many of the sick are choosing to stay at home. In doing so, they unknowingly infect caregivers and those who mourn them. “People are waiting until the last minute to bring their family members and when they do it’s complicated for us,” says Mathieu Kanyama, head of health promotion at the Ebola treatment center in Beni run by the Alliance for International Medical Action, or ALIMA. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”Here there are doctors, not magicians.” Nearly one year into the outbreak which has killed more than 1,700 and was declared a global health emergency this month, a rise in community deaths is fueling a resurgence of Ebola in Beni. During a two-week period in July alone, 30 people died at home. Health teams are now going door-to-door with megaphones trying to get the message out. “Behind every person who has died there is someone developing a fever,” Dr. Gaston Tshapenda, who heads the Ebola response in Beni for Congo’s health ministry, told his teams. Many people still don’t believe Ebola is real, health experts say, which stymies efforts to control the disease’s spread. Ebola symptoms are also similar to common killers like malaria and typhoid, so those afraid of going to a treatment center often try to self-medicate at home with paracetamol to reduce fever. But Ebola, unlike those other illnesses, requires the patient to be kept in isolation and away from the comfort of family. Dr. Maurice Kakule, who became one of this outbreak’s first Ebola patients after he treated a sick woman at his clinic, is now trying to make it easier for those who are ill to get help in and around Beni, near the border with Uganda. He and other survivors, who are now immune to the disease, run a motorcycle taxi ambulance. After receiving a phone call for help they go to homes, reassure the sick and take them for medical care without infecting others. People’s most common fear is that they will only leave an Ebola treatment center in a body bag, Kakule says. “Some have heard of the problem of Ebola but there have been no survivors in their family,” he said. “Since they had relatives die at a treatment center, they think people are killed there and that’s why they categorically refuse to go.” They fear, too, that they will die alone, surrounded only by health care personnel covered in protective gear from head to toe. To try to humanize the care of patients in isolation, ALIMA’s Ebola treatment center in Beni places some patients in their own transparent room called a “CUBE,” where they can see visitors from their beds. Others share a room with one other patient and a glass window where loved ones can gather.last_img read more

Universities stocking up on naloxone kits training staff to deal with opioids

first_imgHALIFAX – Some Canadian universities are gearing up for the new academic year by training staff on how to deal with opioid overdoses and equipping them with naloxone kits.The University of King’s College in Halifax has taught staff how to administer naloxone, the potentially life-saving antidote, and students can access them through residence personnel.The school told Global News it introduced the safety measure because of the growing incidents of opioid misuse across the country, which saw about 2,500 opioid-related deaths last year and hundreds more this year.In British Columbia, where the opioid epidemic has hit the hardest, the University of British Columbia allows students to pick up free naloxone kits on campus if they think they are at risk of an overdose.Health Canada recently put out a warning about the drugs for students during orientation week, also recommending that students carry naloxone kits in case of an overdose caused by opioids.The University of Alberta is giving its Protective Services staff Narcan nasal spray, while Edmonton’s MacEwan University has two naloxone kits with three people trained to administer them.(Global News)last_img read more

Moldova spotlights breakaway region in address to UN Assembly

29 September 2009Hope for a peaceful solution to the separatist conflict in Moldova’s Transdniestrian region lies in its demilitarization and democratization, the country’s ambassador to the United Nations told the General Assembly today. Transdniestria has been a breakaway region on Moldova’s eastern flank – bordered by the Dniester River on the west and Ukraine on the west – following fighting between Moldovan and separatist forces in the early 1990s, when the country gained its independence.“Implementation of democratic reforms, normalization of the economic and social climate to the right side of the Dniester will allow to accelerate the resolution of the Transdniestrian problem,” Alexandru Cujba said, calling for an increased role for the United States and the European Union (EU) in resolving the dispute.Simultaneously, he said, Moldova will “revive its efforts towards withdrawing foreign troops from the country, towards replacing the present peacekeeping operation with a multinational mission with a mandate, towards achieving integration of the country in all socio-economic segments by encouraging wide participation of the non-governmental sector.”In 2007, Mr. Cujba said his country put forward initiatives, in a bid to boost trust, to ensure free movement and modernize infrastructure, among other moves.“Unfortunately, the so-called Transdniestrian authorities boycotted time and again these initiatives through introducing illegal customs taxes,” as well as violating Moldovan citizens’ right to study their native language, he noted, adding that Moldova will press ahead with negotiations to resolve the problem. read more

Citing surge in executions UN expert voices deep concern about right to

Ahmed Shaheed, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, spoke to reporters in New York ahead of the presentation of his latest report to the General Assembly committee dealing with human rights issues (Third Committee) tomorrow. “The main concerns in my report deal with issues of right to life,” he stated, adding that he has observed a “surge” in executions in the country in the past 12 to 15 months. At least 852 individuals were reportedly executed between July 2013 and June 2014, representing an “alarming” increase in the number of executions in relation to the already-high rates of previous years, he wrote in his report.“The Government also continues to execute juvenile offenders,” he added. “In 2014 alone, eight individuals believed to be under 18 years of age at the time of their alleged crimes were reportedly executed.” Mr. Shaheed also noted a “widening of the range of offenses” for which people are put to death, including economic crimes and what are clearly political activities. As pointed out in the report, the new Islamic Penal Code that entered into force in 2013 now omits references to apostasy, witchcraft and heresy, but continues to allow for juvenile executions and retains the death penalty for activities that do not constitute most serious crimes in line with the safeguards guaranteeing protection of the rights of those facing the death penalty such as adultery, repeated alcohol use, and drug possession and trafficking.The expert said he was “shocked” by the execution over the weekend of Reyhaneh Jabbari, a young woman who was hanged in a Tehran prison for killing a man she said was trying to sexually abuse her.Mr. Shaheed had raised his concerns about Ms. Jabbari’s trial with the Government on several occasions but had not received satisfactory replies. He also cited concerns about the rights of lawyers; the right to expression, association and assembly; and extensive measures taken by the Government to restrict access to information.Religious persecution also remains a concern, he said, noting that there are at least 300 people in detention for their religious practices.“Of increasing concern to me is the worsening situation of women in the country,” Mr. Shaheed added, noting that, among other things, the number of women enrolled in university has decreased from 62 per cent to 48 per cent over a two-year period. Other concerns include the lack of opportunities for women in the workplace, as well as wage disparities. Early and forced marriages are another major concern, the expert said. The legal age of marriage for girls in the country is 13 years, but girls as young as 9 years of age may be married with permission from a court.According to the report, at least 48,580 girls between 10 and 14 years of age were married in 2011, 48,567 of whom were reported to have had at least one child before they reached 15 years of age. Some 40,635 marriages of girls under 15 years of age were also registered between March 2012 and March 2013, of which more than 8,000 involved men who were at least 10 years older. Furthermore, at least 1,537 marriages of girls under 10 years of age were registered in 2012, which is a significant increase compared with the 716 registered between March 2010 and March 2011.The number of registered divorces for girls under 15 years of age has also consistently increased since 2010, the report added. The Government has responded by stating that the law prohibits forced marriage, meaning that all marriages in the country are consensual. Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.Mr. Shaheed has not been allowed entry into Iran since he took up his post in 2011. He has prepared his reports based on numerous official Government sources, interviews with Iranians both inside and outside the country and reports sent to him by credible human rights organizations. read more

Set your alarm Australian Open gets its dream final between Federer and

first_img RAFAEL NADAL SENSATIONALLY set up a dream Australian Open final against Roger Federer with a marathon win over Grigor Dimitrov.The Spanish 14-time grand slam champion was forced into a titanic battle on Rod Laver Arena before winning 6-3 5-7 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 in four hours and 56 minutes.Nadal, so impressive throughout the tournament at Melbourne Park, will face great rival Federer in a major final for the ninth time and first since 2011.Sunday’s final (8.30am Irish time) will be the 2009 champion’s 21st in grand slams as he eyes his 15th title, which would see him close in on Federer’s record of 17.Nadal had won seven of his previous eight meetings with Dimitrov, but the Bulgarian 15th seed was the victor in their most recent match and pushed his illustrious opponent to the limit on this occasion.As expected, the ninth seed regularly attacked Dimitrov’s one-handed backhand with his top-spin forehand, just as he is likely to do against Federer on Sunday. Source: Kin CheungBut Dimitrov stood firm, admirably sticking with Nadal in what must surely rank as the standout performance of the 25-year-old’s career.Nadal was under threat early but was the first to break, an approaching Dimitrov unable to return a forehand down the line to fall 3-1 behind.That break was all he would need to take the first set, with Dimitrov struggling against serve after missing his early chances.Somewhat out of nowhere, Dimitrov broke to love in the fourth game of the second set, during which Nadal was given a time violation by chair umpire Pascal Maria.A brilliant backhand pass down the line, followed by a Dimitrov double fault, saw Nadal break back in the seventh game.Sloppiness led to the pair trading breaks again before Nadal saved four set points, two with big serves and another with a forehand winner.Dimitrov would finally, and deservedly, win the set with his third break of serve, Nadal sending a backhand well long to see the match levelled.Nadal lifted to start the third set and Dimitrov made back-to-back errors – one from each wing – to fall a break behind. Source: Andy BrownbillUncharacteristically, Nadal failed to consolidate as the baseline exchanges became more gruelling, before both players started to struggle late in the set.The tie-break was a thriller, but Dimitrov cracked at the decisive moment, sending a forehand wide at 5-5 before Nadal overpowered him, leading to another error to finish the set. To his credit, Dimitrov hung in there in the fourth to force another breaker, twice holding comfortably when serving to stay in the match.He carried that form into the tie-break, taking a 5-2 lead before closing out the set to force a decider.Even as the contest passed the four-hour mark, Nadal again raised the intensity to start the fifth, only for Dimitrov to hold serve after an opening game lasting almost 11 minutes.The baseline battles continued early in the fifth, Nadal incredibly holding from 15-40 down in the eighth game.That proved to be decisive as he broke in the next with a backhand winner down the line, on his way to closing out an amazing victory at 00:44 local time.The42 is on Instagram!

Doctor Who Underrated Villain of the Week Torajii Sun

first_img You know Daleks and Davros and Missy the Master, Angels and Silence hell-bent on disaster. But do you recall the most underrated Doctor Who villains of all?Each week, I will dig into the depths of the Whoniverse to examine one rejected, misjudged, or altogether forgotten big bad. Grab your sunglasses and sunscreen, and maybe a spacesuit, if you’ve got one: It’s going to be a hot one.Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun—but mama, that’s where the fun is (via BBC)TORAJII SUNFirst appearance: “42” (2007)—season 3, episode 7Home planet: N/ADoctor: TenthCompanion: Martha JonesA near-perfect sphere of hot plasma, the sun is our most important source of energy for life on Earth. And it would incinerate you in milliseconds.So it’s safe to assume that crashing into the sun in any solar system is risky.When the Doctor and Martha answer a distress call from the S.S. Pentallian (named after the pentallion drive, part of a transmat used in Fourth Doctor story “Revenge of the Cybermen”), they dock on a sinking ship. But instead of drowning, the crew is hurtling toward the star of the Torajii system.After about half an hour of introductions, murder plots, pub quiz questions, emotional phone calls, and speculating who the real villain is, the Time Lord finally learns the truth.Hal Korwin (Matthew Chambers) is the first to be infected (via BBC)Having saved Martha and Riley from quite imminent danger, he mistakenly looks back into the burning mass, only to find himself infected—just as Korwin and Dev before him.“That sun is alive. A living organism,” the Doctor explains, eyes screwed shut and face contorting. “They scooped out its heart, used it for fuel, and now it’s screaming.”Blaming Captain McDonnell—another greedy human ready to “grab whatever’s nearest and bleed it dry”—he reveals that the sun is “living in me.” And for the first time, it’s clear.Masks worn by crew members possessed by the spirit of the sun were based on Marvel character Cyclops (via BBC)The star is trying to recover its stolen parts, now burned up by the ship’s engines.Like a lost puppy searching for its way home, the sun isn’t inherently evil—just confused, scared, and hurting. I mean, how would you feel if someone ripped out your heart to power their car?There’s a reason fusion scoops are illegal.That looks like it hurts (via BBC)The angry Torajii Sun is the first in a line of other-worldly sentient beings created by incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall: After penning episode “42,” Chibs returned for two-parter “The Hungry Earth”/”Cold Blood,” which reintroduced the Silurians, as well as later chapters “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” and “The Power of Three.”There’s no telling what Chibs will bring to season 11 (aside from a long-awaited female Doctor), set to debut in the fall of 2018.

Injuries Are The Star Of The Finals

first_imgAlso:-Toronto keeping Kawhi will be a tough sell-Boogie Cousins will get a contract-NBA Finals and offseason worst-case scenario-Where Colin was right/wrong Guests:Chris Broussard, Jim Jackson, and Ric Bucher <span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Injuries are the star of The FinalsThe Warriors took Game 2 of the NBA Finals to even the series at one game a piece, but in the process sustained more injuries to Klay Thompson and key role player Kevon Looney. Additionally, Andre Iguodala is hobbled and Boogie Cousins is gingerly coming of his early playoff injury at less than 100%, and Kevin Durant’s return is uncertain. Somehow, they still managed to win the game.In most Finals, a player establishes themselves as the star, but in these Finals the biggest headliner is the injuries, and the fact that Golden State can win without most of their best players proves they are the better team. If Toronto had anywhere close to the same amount of injuries, the Finals wouldn’t even be competitive.last_img read more
