CBI arrests PC after high drama

first_imgNew Delhi: Former Finance Minister and senior Congress leader, P Chidambaram was on Wednesday night arrested by the CBI amidst the high drama, where officials had to scale the walls of his Jor Bagh home to enter the premises and take him into custody.Investigative agencies sprung into action after the Supreme Court of India closed for business on Wednesday. Earlier in the day, the Apex court had denied an urgent hearing to Chidambaram’s Special Leave Petition (SLP), seeking protection from arrest in the INX Media case. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsOfficials here said that Chidambaram was arrested based on an arrest warrant issued by a competent court. Sources here said that a Rouse Avenue court here had issued the arrest warrant for the former Finance Minister, in the INX case. While, the court referred the matter to the CJI, which lawyers say will now be heard on Friday, Chidambaram was seen in public for the first after the Delhi High Court denied him bail in the case. The veteran Congress leader arrived at the AICC headquarters here, where he delivered a short statement and left. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayHe emphasised that he was not evading the law and that he was trying to get the law’s help in this matter. He added he that had not been named in the FIR or its contents and that the CBI was yet to file a charge sheet in the case against him. A CBI team missed Chidambaram by minutes at the AICC headquarters. However, when he reached his Jor Bagh residence, CBI and ED teams were not being allowed to enter. The drama escalated to a point where officials from both agencies had to scale the wall to enter the premises. At least three teams from CBI and one from ED were at the residence assisted by at least 20 Delhi Police officials. The Enforcement Directorate had issued a Look Out Circular (LOC) against Chidambaram on Tuesday, and so did the CBI. As soon as the Apex court opened on Wednesday, Chidambaram’s lawyers approached the senior-most judge as directed and tried to ask for an urgent hearing to get their client protection from arrest and a stay on the Delhi High Court order that denied him anticipatory bail in the case. However, given the “magnitude” of the case, the court forwarded the matter to the CJI. As Chidambaram’s lawyers went into a huddle trying to get the matter formally listed in the docket, the SC registry cited some “defects” with Chidambaram’s SLP, saying the error might come in the way of listing the matter. In the SLP, Chidambaram’s lawyers asked whether he can be denied bail even when he is not named in the FIR or its contents, and when he has fully co-operated with investigators. The petition asks whether the High Court was right in considering only the case diary and select questions where Chidambaram allegedly gave evasive answers while denying him bail.Chidambaram’s petition also notes that all other arrested accused in the case have already been granted bail. Lawyers later in the day said that the Apex court would not hear the matter until Friday morning, thus allowing agencies time till then to arrest Chidambaram. However, the sitting Congress Rajya Sabha MP had not been seen since he left court premises on Tuesday. Chidambaram did not return to his Jorbagh residence, where a six-member CBI team visited just hours after the Delhi High Court lifted his arrest shield. The CBI team arrived at the residence once again after 11:15 pm to paste a notice outside the house, ordered the former Finance Minister to join the investigation within two hours of receiving it and also sent it to his email address. Sources here said that Chidambaram has not joined the investigation and that no fresh summons has been issued to him as of yet.last_img read more

Canadas inflation is up but retail sales are down

OTTAWA — Canadian consumer prices picked up their pace last month as the annual inflation rate moved up from very low levels and closer to the Bank of Canada’s ideal target of two per cent, Statistics Canada said Friday.Higher gasoline prices helped push the annual inflation rate in September to 1.6 per cent, up from 1.4 per cent a month earlier and away from its two-year low of just one per cent in June, the agency said. Excluding gas prices, inflation was 1.1 per cent.The inflation-targeting central bank scrutinizes inflation ahead of its rate decisions. Its next benchmark rate announcement is scheduled for next Wednesday.However, only one of the bank’s three preferred measures of core inflation, which seek to look through the noise of more-volatile items, increased last month while the others stayed put.Statistics Canada also released numbers Friday that showed retail sales contracted 0.3 per cent in August, after increasing 0.4 per cent in July. Retail sales volumes in August recoiled 0.7 per cent.Excluding sales at gas stations and auto dealers, the report said retail trade was down 1.3 per cent in August. Sales were also down 2.5 per cent at food and beverage stores and 2.4 per cent at furniture and home furnishings stores.The retail sales data suggests the economy is starting to show signs of slowing down, as widely expected, following its red-hot performance in the first half of the year.On inflation, the report highlighted gasoline, travel tours and air transportation as the biggest upward contributors to consumer prices. The downward pressure was led by cheaper electricity, women’s clothing furniture.The report also found that consumer prices rose in seven of the 10 provinces in September. read more

Annan and UN envoy hail success of weekend elections for Kosovo Assembly

“The Secretary-General calls on all of Kosovo’s political leaders to respect the result of the election,” his spokesman said in a statement issued today in New York after the poll for the 120-member Assembly.”The turnout and good management of the electoral process, for the first time by Kosovans themselves, demonstrate their understanding of the importance of making their voices heard and taking a direct hand in shaping Kosovo’s future.”Mr. Annan said he expected a new government would be formed quickly and would cooperate closely with the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), which has been in charge of the province since June 1999.The statement stressed the importance of the incoming government working “for the benefit of all,” including Kosovo’s ethnic minorities.While noting the low turnout among Kosovo Serbs, Mr. Annan praised “those who voted and those who stood as candidates for their courage in the face of severe contrary pressure.”The Secretary-General’s Special Representative Søren Jessen-Petersen, who spent Saturday touring polling stations across the province, described the election as peaceful, well-organized and a success.Acknowledging that many Kosovo Serbs who would have liked to vote did not because they were afraid, he pointed out that there were those who did vote, including some in areas where not a single party had campaigned, and this meant that there would be Kosovo Serb representatives in the Assembly.”This is the important thing: there will be representatives who will be part of the dialogue, and we will now reach out not only to all voters in all communities who did vote, but also to those who wanted to vote but were afraid, because they also share a common interest in the future of Kosovo.” read more

Watership Down actors reveal they were inspired by the terror of watching

Clover, voiced by Gemma Arterton  Clover, voiced by Gemma Arterton  Star Wars actor Boyega, 26, said the realism created by the new animation techniques will increase the “emotional stakes” for viewers.“I was also curious as to how they were going to do this, because the 1978 film was in 2D and it was devastating,” said Boyega, who voices Bigwig.“I was devastated, I can’t lie. It was too much – it was bloody and looked a bit strange and as a kid taking that in was very scary.”Hoult, 29, who plays Fiver, said the story is “scary at times” but “not unsuitable for your children to be watching with you”.The cast spoke after one of the producers, Rory Aitken, said the remake is “clearly not appropriate for younger children”. Stars of the BBC’s new Watership Down adaptation have revealed their performances were shaped by the “terror” they felt as children watching the classic 1978 version.James McAvoy, John Boyega, Gemma Arterton and Nicholas Hoult recalled the traumatic scenes from the cartoon ahead of the new television mini-series which airs this Christmas.The TV remake of Richard Adams’ classic children’s novel, which has sold more than 50 million copies since its release in 1972, uses the latest animation technology to recreate many of the violent scenes which viewers found so affecting in the earlier version.Asked why he took the role, McAvoy, 39, who plays Hazel, said: “From the deep love and terror that watching the 1978 animation put inside my bones, and then from reading the novel later in life when it blew me away all over again.”Arterton, 32, who plays Clover, added: “I remember seeing the 1978 animation when I was very young – and being petrified by it. Having revisited the story as an adult, it’s so pertinent, especially for these days and these times.”The adaptation, which has an all-British cast, will air as two feature-length episodes on BBC One on December 22 and 23.

Happy Pi Day Now go eat pie

first_imgDepending on how much you love or loathe math, today might be a day to celebrate or forget. It is March 14, or 3/14, and is better known in math circles as Pi Day.It was first thought up by the physicist Larry Shaw while working at the San Francisco Exploratorium in 1988. He wanted to celebrate the mathematical constant we all remember from school: 3.14159. But how do you get people to celebrate a number? Simple, you mark the day by offering up an excuse to eat delicious pie.If you’ve never heard of Pi Day before, you may be surprised to find how popular it is. Several universities celebrate the day, with MIT being a standout example as they mail out applicant decision letters today, but do so at 6:28pm. This is known as Tau Time, as tau is twice as large as pi and a major competitor to the crown pi holds in the world of math.It’s also fitting that today is Albert Einstein‘s birthday, so many double celebrations happen including pi reciting competitions. However, I prefer Larry Shaw’s original idea for how to celebrate the day: we all march around in a circle while eating lots of delicious pie. As well as offering up an opportunity to eat, any kids taking part are sure to learn what pi is and how to remember the first 6 digits of it with a rhyme:Cosine, secant, tangent, sine! 3.14159If your main reason for celebrating Pi Day is as an excuse to eat pie, you’ll also be glad to know there’s a second celebration on July 22. That’s Pi Approximation Day as the fraction 22/7 is a common approximation of pi.And there’s one final use to point out for pi outside of math. If you ever need to get the attention of a room full of scientists or mathematicians, The Simpsons‘ Professor Frank has this top tip to offer:Thanks to Wikipedia for background information.last_img read more

It Didnt Take Long for Humans and Neanderthals to Start Boinking

first_img Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Stay on target The prevailing thought for decades was that humans descending from Neanderthals more or less directly. Some thought we may be close cousins, but that’s about as intimate as anyone thought we got for some time. The more we started digging though, the more (and weirder) mysteries we discover lying between us and some of our nearest kin, and a team of researchers has just made the most startling (and bizarre) discovery yet.The group sequenced DNA from the remains of a Neanderthal who lived some 100,000 years ago and compared it that of modern humans. They discovered that some ancient human woman part of the lineage that ultimately birthed homo sapiens mated with a Neanderthal male more than 120,000 years earlier. This is especially weird because that’s well before we thought that our ancestors came into contact with Neanderthals.All this comes from a special kind of genetic information only passed down through the mother — mitochondrial DNA. While the sperm and egg each carry half the chromosomes needed to make life a thing, every cell of any decently complex organism has another bit of DNA in their mitochondria — tiny pseudo-cells that serve as the power plants for their host. Because only eggs have mitochondria though, only the mother’s mtDNA gets passed down. This makes it particularly useful for evolutionary biology, because you can compare the development and changes of that genetic information, with that stored in the rest of the cell.For some time, researchers have been perplexed by the fact that Neanderthals and humans share a lot of the same genetic markers — especially in the mtDNA. This could explain it.“Her children spread her genetic legacy through the Neanderthal lineage,” reads Science Magazine. “In time her African mtDNA completely replaced the ancestral Neanderthal mtDNA.”This is a huge discovery, and shows that humans and our European-based cousins never really stopped intermingling. The two lines are thought to have diverged almost 500,000 years ago, and, over the millennia, we just couldn’t stay apart. I really can’t tell if this is cute or weird. On the one hand, it’s humans mating with not-quite-humans, but then we are (or were, at least) both intellectually capable species, presumably with the ability to make our own choices. And we clearly weren’t so genetically distant that we couldn’t have perfectly healthy and normal kids. But… this is still weird, right? No? Maybe? Damn. Evolution is just… weird.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

David de Gea no longer saves for Manchester United

first_imgNow that Manchester United has been defeated once again, we need to talk about the terrible form that Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea is going through.The match that Manchester United just finished playing against Tottenham Hotspur can be defined as a disaster, the Red Devils fell 3-0 at Old Trafford in what can be considered a historic result for Tottenham and the beginning of the end for many names inside the club. One of the most talked about players that haven’t really been delivering top quality performances is David de Gea, the Spanish goalkeeper who has gone through hell since the summer started and hasn’t really been able to recover from this unexpected situation. David de Gea used to be considered the best goalkeeper in the world just a few months ago, he was Manchester United’s most trusted life insurance and there was nothing the Red Devils couldn’t do against any rivals because they had the confidence of having a goalkeeper of his stature on their side. But something has gone very wrong somewhere down the line, De Gea is no longer the same player and the results of this dramatic level drop are starting to show a little too much.?? David De Gea’s last 16 shots faced for @ManUtd & @SeFutbol:? Saved ⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal ? Saved? Saved ? Saved ⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal⚽️ Goal⚽️ Goal? pic.twitter.com/YOcqRVUGvf— SPORF (@Sporf) August 27, 2018Where it all began.David de Gea’s bad run started since the day in which Spain’s manager Julen Lopetegui was sacked from his position, that gave the Atletico Madrid product a huge responsibility because he would be the one that was going to suffer the most when a rival scored during the World Cup. De Gea’s first match was against Portugal and he got a hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo that was a major factor for his confidence drop as well, De Gea hasn’t really recovered since that moment. During the rest of the World Cup De Gea got a couple more goals from Morrocco, then he got another one against Russia and failed to deliver during the penalty kicks against the hosts. Spain got eventually eliminated from the tournament and David de Gea was one of the most criticized players of that competition because he was far from the level that turned him into the best goalkeeper in the world. All the Spaniard had to look forward to was Manchester United’s new season, but things have only gotten worse since he returned to action for his club.David de Gea for club & country since the start of the 2018 World Cup:• 16 shots on target faced• 12 goals concededDave needs to start saving again. ? pic.twitter.com/Ry5KkUWVvuTammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.— Squawka Football (@Squawka) August 27, 2018Mourinho’s failing Manchester United.For David de Gea after returning from vacations this summer, the top priority has been to return to his former self and help out his squad winning matches. In three Premier League games after this Munday’s defeat against Tottenham Hotspur, David de Gea has received six goals already and they haven’t been his fault really but this goalkeeper used to save everything coming his way just a few months back and how his statistics have become a disaster. Just so you get an idea of what we are talking about let’s look at De Gea’s last 16 shots on target he’s received, the Spaniard has only been able to save four since the World Cup started back in June during activity between his club and country. This is an alarming stat that gives us an idea of how complicated life is right now for David, a goalkeeper who is going through a terrible moment of his career and will keep working to get past it.A disappointing night. #MUFC #MUNTOT pic.twitter.com/Cbw36gRmQd— Manchester United (@ManUtd) August 27, 2018De Gea’s bad luck with his defenders.But it’s not just his fault that this is happening right now, there are other players who are to blame also for the goals that Manchester United receives and we consider it isn’t fair that David de Gea takes all the responsibility for these painful defeats. The Red Devils’ defensive back line is truly a disaster, they weren’t able to sign any new players on that position and they have practically been obligated to play with players of the likes of Chris Smalling or Phil Jones who are just not at the level the manager expects. In this Monday’s match against the Spurs, Jones was clearly the player to blame for Harry Kane’s goal and one of the biggest disappointments for United at Old Trafford. David de Gea could’ve done a lot more in Tottenham’s second goal that Lucas Moura scored, and there was nothing he could really do during the third and final goal that Tottenham Hotspur won at Old Trafford this Monday. I’m sorry to tell you this but, Dave no longer saves for Manchester United.Para quienes apoyasteis, criticasteis con respeto y sufristeis con nosotros, gracias. Estamos jodidos pero nos levantaremos y no dejaremos de intentarlo ??To whom supported, suffered and criticised us with respect, thanks. We’re fucked but we’ll get up again and never give up. pic.twitter.com/es4NBr05CD— David de Gea (@D_DeGea) July 2, 2018What do you think David de Gea’s problem is, could it be a psychological problem or is he just going through a bad run? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.last_img read more
