Dont want to get into the rat race

first_imgNew Delhi: Aparshakti Khurana is getting offers of lead roles with great money, but he doesn’t want to rush into it. The actor says he is waiting for the right script and the right part. “There are a lot of people who approached me after Dangal and Stree to do films in lead roles with great money. But I don’t want to rush into it,” said Aparshakti. “I want you to call me with a happy face that the film is rocking… And that will only happen if I make wise and patient decisions. So I am just kind of waiting for the right script and not jumping the gun and not rushing into it,” he added. Explaining the reason behind his decision, he said: “A lot of actors have made that mistake. Apart from Rajkummar Rao, nobody has been able to do that… Somebody who used to do smaller roles and then come into the big proper male lead character. Apart from Rajkummar, I don’t think anyone else has been able to do that.” From Dangal, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Stree to his latest release Luka Chuppi, Aparshakti, the younger brother of Ayushmann Khurrana, has made his presence felt in the narrative irrespective of the length of the supportive characters. Directed by debutant Laxman Utekar, Luka Chuppi starring Kartik Aaryan explores live-in relationships, and is working well at the box office.last_img read more

Peace and development retain focus as Assembly debate continues

“Promoting peace is the United Nations’ raison d’etre,” said Ursula Plassnik, Austria’s Foreign Minister in supporting multilateralism, the rule of international law, and the peace-building commission proposed Secretary-General Kofi Annan and endorsed by leaders at last week’s World Summit.In Africa, regional and international cooperation was necessary in both peace-building, peacekeeping and development assistance, to rid the continent of its many conflicts, according to Morocco’s Foreign Minister Mohamed Benaissa.”The UN Charter governs not only relationship between nations, but also the relations of Governments to their people,” Foreign Minister David Oddsson of Iceland said, urging reform of UN human rights machinery.Foreign Minister Ilinka Mitreva of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, said: “We should all be both speakers of words and doers of deeds,” in accomplishing reforms to meet development targets and better protect people. She added that dialogue was crucial to resolving the conflicts in her region.Terrorism must be dealt through cooperative efforts and not through conflict, and also by reducing the gaps between rich and poor, said Mohamed Vall Ould Bellal, Foreign Minister of Mauritania.Holding the chairmanship of the Counter-Terrorism Committee, Denmark supported outreach to those States that are having difficulties in participating in the struggle against the scourge, said its Foreign Minister, Per Stig Moeller, who also affirmed the importance of arms control in the situation.The Foreign Minister of the Central African Republic, Jean-Paul Ngoupande, said in order to deal better with such challenges, the Security Council needed to undergo reform to better represent his continent and other regions because international solidarity was essential for his own country’s return to peace and security.Supporting the peace-building commission, San Marino’s Foreign Minister, Fabio Berardi, said that small countries, too, needed to be represented on the Security Council.Peace and stability were particularly important in Iraq and the Middle East, Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Comoros Aboudou Soefo said, but efforts at peace could not be undertaken without efforts to address disease pandemics, debt, famine, and poverty. He noted the striking socioeconomic inequalities between the North and the South and said the developing world would suffer the effects of marginalization and the digital divide for years to come.The World Summit had achieved several important goals, such as the creation of a Peacebuilding Commission, but the Government of the Netherlands was disappointed by the failure to address the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, one of the greatest threats to mankind, Netherlands Foreign Minister Bernard Rudolf Bot said.Turning to questions of tolerance, Mr. Bot said the best way to protect tolerance was by treasuring one’s identity, while simultaneously daring to re-assess the prevailing norms and standards and constantly reminding oneself that it would be wrong to hold an entire community responsible for the deeds of individuals.Guinean Minister of Foreign Affairs Foumata Kaba-Sidibé welcomed the decision of the Group of Eight rich countries to increase development aid and alleviate the debt of some highly indebted poor countries in Africa and she called on the international community to exert the political will to eradicate the scourge of terrorism.Lithuania called for rapid progress in making the proposed Peace-Building Commission fully operational and said Security Council reform should not be postponed any longer. Foreign Secretary Oskaras Jusys said the Council’s working methods should be improved and it membership expanded through equitable geographical representation and by taking note of major new actors and contributors on the international scene.Solomon Islands Foreign Minister Laurie Chan said the upcoming Doha trade process in December must provide stable and predictable market access for least developed countries, particularly since her country had a debt level of 100 per cent of its gross domestic product (GDP), while the per capita income had dropped more than 20 per cent below the country’s GDP 10 years ago.The State Secretary in the Foreign Office of Germany, Klaus Scharioth, said the composition of the UN Security Council reflected the world of 1945, not 2005 and the Council risked losing its legitimacy if entire continents were not adequately represented.The proposal submitted by Brazil Germany, India and Japan to add permanent and non-permanent members to the Council was the only one that included a comprehensive proposal for reforming the Council and its working methods and was the only one capable of obtaining the necessary two-thirds majority in the General Assembly, he said.Georgia needed a mechanism through which the international community would effectively support initiatives and policies directed towards the peaceful resolution of conflicts, Foreign Minister Salome Zourabichvili said. Georgia was experiencing “frozen conflicts” on its soil, conflicts which have led to the freezing of both economic and democratic development and producing, therefore, trafficking, criminal activities and possible terrorist activities.Timor Leste, one of the UN’s youngest countries, has made real progress in nation-building, peace-consolidation, economic development, national reconciliation, and enhanced relations with its neighbours, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation José Ramos-Horta said. Malaria and tuberculosis were widespread, however, he said, and food insecurity continued to be a problem. read more

Of the 500 people who cast ballots, they’re essentially in four constituencies: the youth council, the adult council, the professional council and the athletes council.

Carer spared jail for sex activity with boy while she was very

first_imgGatt was set to face trial in September but pleaded guilty to one count of  sexual activity with a child.  The mother was visiting the area, and claims to have had drank far too much to recollect what had happened.Prosecutor Virginia Hayton told Carlisle Crown Court that after being caught naked with the boy on top of her, drunken Gatt fell and injured herself, and so paramedics and police were called to the scene.Miss Hayton said: “She was described as being fairly aggressive to them. She asked if she could just go home as she had made a fool of herself. She was then arrested.”Despite accepting that Gatt was a woman of “hitherto good character”, Miss Hayton told the judge that the crime crossed the custody threshold due to the 22-year-age disparity between Gatt and the boy.The victim is said to be embarrassed that he cannot remember what happened and has had the “mickey took out of him” by his friends since the incident.Brian Williams, defending, said: “She has pleaded guilty at the first opportunity and it is a brave plea because no one can remember what actually happened that evening.”Judge Barbara Forrester then interjected by telling Mr Williams that the relative who caught her engaging in the act does remember what they saw.He added: “The consequences of this conviction have been substantial, upsetting  and distressing for her. She faces hostility within her local community and she’s lost some of her work.”Mr Williams said that the worst consequence was that the single mother was  no longer allowed to be alone with the two young daughters that she has raised be herself.He said: “This is a very unusual case of its kind. One usually finds people facing these offences to be men with a predilection for young boys or girls.”That is not the case here. This offence was committed when she was drunk and she has no interest in young men.  She is not a paedophile.”She was very, very drunk and did something very, very silly and now must face the consequences along with the heavy price she has already paid.”Judge Forrester told Gatt that she took her offence very seriously as it was clear in her initial interviews with police that she did not understand the severity of what she had done.She said: “There is a significant disparity of age, a serious breach of  trust and you had both drunk alcohol but I accept that you did not provide it to him.”What happened after that, we will never know.”Judge Forrester handed Gatt a 20-month prison sentence suspended for two years.She also made her subject to a sexual harm prevention order, placed her on the sex offenders register for 10 years and ordered her to pay £1,000 costs.She also gave Gatt, of Dalrymple, 30 days of rehabilitation work which could be carried out in Scotland.  A mother-of-two has been spared jail after engaging in sexual activity with a 14-year-old boy while she was “very very drunk”.Angela Gatt, 37, was caught in the act after a night of heavy drinking in  North Cumbria in the summer of last year. Neither Gatt, nor her young victim, remember anything about the incident and her barrister said she was “brave” for pleading guilty to her crime. The cleaner, from Ayr, Scotland, was caught in a compromising position by a relative of the boy at the house where she had been drinking Prosecco and her victim had been drinking alco-pops. The boy then fled the room saying he felt sick and Gatt asked the relative, “What is your problem?”, to which she was reminded that he was only 14-years-old.

Meanwhile in Northern Ireland Sinn Féin and DUP are still the big

first_imgTHE DUP AND Sinn Féin look set to cement their positions as the two largest parties in Northern Ireland but their votes are down and there are some positive signs for the other parties.Roughly half of the 463 council seats in the north have been filled so far with the DUP having 72 councillors elected so according to UTV’s running total.Sinn Féin’s first preference of the vote is closing in on the DUP’s, at 23.4 per cent compared to 24.3 per cent. Both percentages are down on 2011 but the DUP’s vote has fallen further, 2.9 per cent compared to 1.4 per cent.Perhaps the most pleased of the party leaders will be the UUP’s Mike Nesbitt with his party growing their first preference vote by almost 2 per cent and returning 56 seats so far. It means that the UUP will have closed the gap on the Unionist side by 5 per cent.The SDLP’s vote has fallen by just over 2 per cent but they continue to provide a nationalist alternative to Sinn Féin on abour 12 per cent of the overall vote. But in John Hume-country in Derry and Strabane the SDLP look likely to have lost control to Sinn Féin.

Detectives baffled as inmates cut through bars to escape California prison

first_img 23,882 Views http://jrnl.ie/3101866 Rogelio Chavez, who escaped from jail on Wednesday. Short URL Detectives baffled as inmates cut through bars to escape California prison The prisoners used a makeshift rope of bedding and clothing to rappel down from the second floor window. 17 Comments Saturday 26 Nov 2016, 7:30 PM FOUR INMATES CUT their way through the bars of a second-story window and rappelled down the side of a California jail using a makeshift rope of bedding and clothing before making their way clear of the facility, the Santa Clara County sheriff’s office said earlier this week.Two of the men were recaptured just outside the jail after the Wednesday night escape, but the other two, Rogelio Chavez and Laron Campbell, remain on at large, Sgt. Rich Glennon said.Crime scene detectives were working to figure out how the men were able to cut through the window’s bars. A deputy patrolling the jail’s perimeter spotted the men as they made their escape.“He kind of thought he saw some movement in the shadows looked up and saw some bedding in the window,” Glennon told The Associated Press.Both Chavez and Campbell were facing false imprisonment and weapons charges, among other counts, when they made their escape. Several agencies are searching for the men, with help from dogs and a helicopter using thermal imaging. Escapee Laron Campbell is also still at large Source: APThe men were last seen in their jail clothing, consisting of an orange top over gray bottoms. Chavez has a distinctive face tattoo that resembles an inky gash going through his left eye.The recaptured men, whose names are not being released, are expected to face charges for the escape.Glennon warned the public off approaching the men if they see them, but is asking people in the area to remain vigilant.“We definitely don’t want the community to approach these individuals, but be aware of anything suspicious,” he said.Read: Two prisoners escape from London prisonRead: Prison worker helped inmates escape after getting “caught up in the fantasy”center_img Rogelio Chavez, who escaped from jail on Wednesday.

VIDEO LaVar Ball puts delusional spin on Lonzos bad debut and criticizes

first_imgLonzo Ball stunk it up in his debut for the Lakers, managing just 3 points and being physically manhandled, but that wasn’t close to enough to stop LaVar Ball from trying to shout into existence another delusional spin on his son’s first game dud.Ball spoke with Stephen A. Smith and Neil Everett after the game and proclaimed Lonzo played great – because of his 9 rebounds – but his teammates need to get out and run the floor more. He said he could score 20 just running down the middle of the floor. This is contrary to the widely known footage of him not being good at basketball. He also dropped the non-excuse/excuse that Lonzo had a bad foot.This seems like it will be exhausting over the course of the season. It already is. It’s not like Magic didn’t know what he was getting into.Here’s LaVar trying to verbally polish a turd:last_img read more

Were Definitely Not in Denmark

first_imgJuly 19, 2010 David Heinemeier Hansson comes from a place where calls never drop and mobile phone customers only pay for the minutes they use. That place isn’t Shangri-La–it’s Copenhagen, Denmark. There are more places like it, but judging from the rate at which U.S. mobile users complain about their service, none of them is in the U.S.Hansson is a partner in 37signals, a Chicago software and Internet applications firm focused on small businesses. He moved from Copenhagen to Chicago four years ago, and he still isn’t accustomed to the differences in quality and cost.”In Denmark, I never had dropped calls, and here it happens all the time, he says. “And everyone in Denmark is on minute plans that amount to about $15 to $20 a month. Here, you pay $50 a month minimum. It’s ludicrously insane.Hansson is an iPhone customer on AT&T’s network, and his complaints about U.S. mobile traditions have not diminished his love of anything with Apple’s name on it.”I’m Apple all the way–iPhone, iPad, iPro. If Apple makes it, I’ll buy it, he says. The latest addition to his collection is the iPad. “Where it really helps are those situations where I’m asking myself if I really want to lug a laptop around, he says. “The iPad is easy to carry around and work on wherever you need to.Hansson’s device family also sets him up for an unwired lifestyle and professional life. “I’ve been exclusively mobile for the last four years, he says. “One number for everything makes everything really simple.Because 37signals is in the business of creating business applications, the mobile apps Hansson uses daily for business tend to be his company’s creations. Most often, he’s using Backpack, an organizational app that helps him keep track of flight plans, photos, to-do lists and multiple calendars. To communicate with co-workers, he uses 37signals’ Campfire, which improves on instant messaging by enabling group chat rooms.Hansson also does a lot of text messaging on the go, and he monitors Twitter from his mobile phone because it’s a major marketing feed for 37signals. For fun, he plays Firemint’s Flight Control and Sid Meier’s Civilization.These are just some of the apps that keep Hansson a devoted Apple user, but it’s clear he doesn’t feel as married to his mobile service provider. “The second that the iPhone is available for any other carrier, I’m switching [from AT&T].

TicoChilean couple seeks to turn any classroom into a science lab

first_imgRelated posts:US Sen. Bill Nelson: Costa Rica has a place in the future of space flight Duolingo language-learning app hits Costa Rican classrooms For a week, people in Costa Rica cast no shadow Costa Rican ants might have the secret to better antibiotics A Tico-Chilean couple is looking to improve science learning in Costa Rica with a new experiment-based teaching program based on mobile laboratories. The modules are designed to give students the tools to conduct their own scientific experiments in any classroom.The lab kits include a supply of materials, equipment and guided instructions for performing experiments such as extracting DNA from fruit, understanding the properties of light and sound, and cultivating microbes.The learning program dubbed Experimenta is the work of Costa Rican biologist Daniela Mendoza and her husband Matías Gutiérrez, a Chilean biochemist.The couple launched their company Bioquímica in Chile in 2010 and two years ago they launched the Experimenta program in public and private schools there.Currently, there are 500 teachers at 170 schools using the program in Chile, and this year the entrepreneurs have set their minds on introducing it in Costa Rica.Learning science by doingThe Experimenta program’s modules come in three sizes: the science box, the mobile lab and the science cabinet. They include chemicals, lab containers, beakers, scales and microscopes.Print guides describe up to 56 scientific experiments in biology, physics and chemistry. Each kit allows experiments in groups of up to 45 students at a time.Gutiérrez said experiments are designed to capture the students’ attention in a learning-by-doing experience. There are modules for students of all ages, from preschool to college.“Students are the lead players in their own learning process, and this allows them to develop their creativity as well as many other skills,” he said.For teachers, the program includes guidebooks and an online training platform. There’s also an online schedule with a detailed description of the program’s learning goals.Mobile labs in Costa RicaMendoza said the idea of ​​offering the program in Costa Rica came in late 2014 when the University of Costa Rica’s Faculty of Education bought three mobile labs and started using them in their teaching programs.“We then started evaluating science programs at elementary and high schools in order to adapt our materials and learning activities to the requirements of Costa Rican schools,” she said.In May, the entrepreneurs presented the program at a public event here. Officials from the Public Education Ministry (MEP) expressed interested in considering the program for local elementary schools, the couple said.“We’re currently in conversation with MEP officials to launch a pilot program to evaluate the results,” Mendoza said.She said various private schools have also requested information about the Experimenta program.The State of Education 2015 report concluded that one of Costa Rica’s main challenges is to boost self-directed learning strategies at public schools.The report also found that students are capable of selecting, managing and assessing their own learning experiences if they are faced with challenging situations that require them to explore and make their own decisions.“As scientists we both are passionate about science learning and we believe our program would help standardize and improve science education here,” Mendoza said.If approved the pilot program would begin as soon as next year at three public schools, she said.

UAEs Tourism sector booming

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: S.P The United Arab Emirates tourism sector has jumped by almost 10 times over the past 40 years as a result of “planned diversification” drive an expert has advised.Mohammed Al Asumi, a former economic adviser at Dubai Executive Office, said diversification of the sources of income is a strategic issue for the UAE, Emirates 24/7 reported.“The country has become a first class tourist destination and is now attracting millions of tourists from all over the world every year,” Mr Asumi said.“The success of the UAE’s tourism sector is evident from its contribution to the GDP, which has gone up from just one percent 40 years ago, when the Union was established, to about 10.4 percent at present.” He added.Mr Asumi said Tourism is one of the most important non oil economic sectors for the UAE.According to Asumi’s figures the number of tourist arrivals in Dubai reached 1.1 million in 2011, while in the UAE the number exceeded two million.Additionally, recent figures reveal 50 million tourists have visited Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF), spending an excess of Dh88billion since its inception 14 years ago, Mr Asumi said.Mr Asumi said the increase in arrivals numbers growing at an annual rate of 10-12 percent annually has rejuvenated UAE airports.“The number through the airport in Dubai last year touched nearly 50 million according to preliminary estimates and arrivals at Abu Dhabi international Airport are also estimated to exceed 10 million for the first time,” Mr Asumi said.last_img read more

first_img 0 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact That Williams was available so late in the third round likely has something to do with his small-school background, because his production — 210 catches, 3,062 yards and 28 TDs in 43 career games — is tough to argue against.As a senior last season, he caught 90 passes for 1,337 yards and 11 touchdowns.However, there is also a red flag in his background, with an arrest for marijuana and possession of a firearm back in May 2016.Keim said the team evaluated that as they always do, on a case-by-case basis, and learned that for Williams it was more of a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time.“All the charges were dismissed and he’s actually a really good kid,” he said. “We spent a lot of time with his coaches, with him, so felt extremely comfortable with his background.”Williams, who said Arizona was the place he wanted to end up, said he was honest with teams who asked about the arrest.“Things like that will never happen again, it will never come up again,” he said. “I just let them know how much I learned from it and it really taught me a lot in the whole process.”With his character not being an issue, the Cardinals snagged a player they, quite simply, liked. TEMPE, Ariz. — Cardinals GM Steve Keim joked that it would not be an Arizona Cardinals draft if they did not take a player from a small school, specifically in the third round.After finding success in past years with John Brown out of Pittsburg State in 2014 and David Johnson from Northern Iowa in 2015, Chad Williams, whom the Cardinals tabbed with the 98th overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, has quite the standards to live up to. “I’ve always said, because you pick guys that you like and you feel like this guy is going to make our team and he can do the things that we want to get done,” Arians said of the confidence in this pick. “To me it has always been easy when you are looking at that guy in the third round, especially at wide receiver.”His combination of size and speed is not necessarily easy to find, especially in the third round. Arians likes the player’s physicality, but said without his wheels, the pick would not have been made.“No, I don’t like slow guys,” he said. “I don’t give a [expletive] how big they are. You’ve got to be able to run past people and if you come in a big, strong, physical package that’s even better.”Follow Adam Green on Twitter – / 16 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Definitely can live up to that,” he said. “Honestly, it doesn’t matter where you get drafted. You have a lot of guys drafted in the third round that were amazing guys.“I just want to come in and be me and I know for a fact I can live up to that third-round hype that you guys got going.”The Cardinals obviously see something in Williams, otherwise, they would not have used their third-round pick on him. Expecting Brown or Johnson-like success, however, would be a bit unfair.Yet, what the Cardinals see in the wideout is someone who at 6-foot-1 at his pro day ran the 40-yard dash at 4.37 seconds while posting a 35.5-inch vertical and 21 reps on the bench press.Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the team was looking for a big receiver, and he believes Williams, who in an early-season game this past season in Tucson against Arizona gained 152 yards on 13 catches, fits the role.“When you look at his tape, screens, making people miss at that size and running people over and doing all the things,” he said. “And then you look at that 40-yard dash without his shirt on, and you go, ‘whoo, this looks like a linebacker and not that fast wide receiver we were looking at on tape.’” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Alcorn State’s Javen Morrison (45) tries to intercept a pass to Grambling State’s Chad Williams (10) during the third quarter of the Southwestern Athletic Conference NCAA college football championship game Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016, in Houston.
