With a view to reduce pollution in the State, the Haryana government on Monday announced that it would give subsidy of ₹61 crore to farmers for the optimum utilisation of crop residue up to December 2017. Renewable energy plants are being established for utilising the crop residue and there is a plan to generate 50 MW electricity from the stubble.The decision was taken at the 7th State-level meeting of a committee constituted to reduce pollution in National Capital Region, held under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary D. S. Dhesi in Chandigarh. The panel was informed by the Agriculture Department that farmers were being encouraged not to burn crop residue and cases were being registered against violators. 236 FIRs so far As many as 2,955 cases of crop residue burning have so far come to light and 236 FIRs have been registered. As compared to last year, the cases of crop residue burning are considerably less this year. The Chief Secretary was informed by the Industries Department that as per the directions of the Supreme Court, the use of Pet Coke and Furnace Oil has been prohibited with effect from November 1, 2017.
Protests by social and students’ organisation greeted the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) on Citizenship (Amendment) Bill of 2016 as it began its two-day hearing in Meghalaya on Thursday.The bill, which the BJP-led NDA government wants to push through, seeks to grant citizenship to minority communities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014 to escape from religious persecution.Organisations such as Khasi Students’ Union, Federation of Khasi-Jaintia and Garo People and Hynniewtrep National Youth Front staged protests outside the State Convention Centre in Shillong where the 16-member JPC team, led by BJP Lok Sabha member Rajendra Agarwal, conducted the hearing.The protests followed the decision of the Conrad K. Sangma Cabinet in the State to oppose the bill. “Constitutionally, Meghalaya is a tribal State, and naturalisation of illegal immigrants into full citizens will only result in influx to capture our already-limited social, economic and political spaces,” a spokesperson of one of the organisations said.The JPC’s three-day hearing in Assam since Monday saw the State being divided on the issue. While almost all organisations and non-BJP political parties in Assamese-speaking Brahmaputra Valley opposed the bill, the Bengali-speaking Barak Valley supported it.
The ICC’s Dispute Resolution Panel Wednesday ordered Pakistan to pay 60 per cent of the cost demanded by the BCCI after the world body’s rejection of the PCB’s compensation claim which blamed India for lack of bilateral series between the two nations.Nearly a month after rejecting the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) compensation claim against India for allegedly failing to honour a Memorandum of Understanding on bilateral cricket, the ICC announced the costs award for the two Boards.”…the Panel orders the PCB to pay the BCCI sixty percent (60%) of: (a) the Claimed Costs; and (b) the administrative costs and expenses of the Panel…,” the ICC committee said in its fresh judgement, which is binding.The BCCI, on the other hand, has been asked to pay 40 per cent of the administrative costs and expenses of the DRC. The judgement did not specify the exact amount that was claimed by the Indian Board.The PCB in response to the verdict by ICC, put out a statement saying, that the fact that they as a board have to pay “significantly lesser costs than claimed by the BCCI reflects that PCB’s case had merit.””The PCB, however, reiterates its disappointment in the original decision/award given against it,” the statement added. The PCB had demanded Rs 447 crore compensation after alleging that the BCCI didn’t honour the MoU that required India to play six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023.The BCCI, on its part, maintained that the alleged MoU was not binding and did not stand as Pakistan failed to honour a commitment to support the revenue model suggested by India for the ICC.advertisementThe ICC then constituted a three-member Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC) to look into the PCB’s compensation claim. The hearing took place at the world body’s headquarters here from October 1-3.”For the BCCI, the victor in the arbitration, to be deprived of all its costs would appear to the Panel to be inappropriate, where the BCCI too had disputed the claim in good faith,” the ICC panel stated.The BCCI had demanded that the PCB “pay the full amount” of its legal costs and the costs of arbitral proceedings including any administrative fees of the ICC, and the fees of the panel, among other expenses.The PCB, on its part, argued that BCCI’s claims are no more than “incomplete summaries”. However, the panel rejected the PCB’s assertion that there should be no order on costs at all.The panel observed that since it had rejected the PCB’s claims for compensation, costs award had to be decided as well.”However, for the BCCI to be granted all of its costs would also be inappropriate…,” the panel noted and cited the letter that the Board had given the PCB which spoke of bilateral cricket between the two countries and which was the basis of Pakistan’s claim.The ICC committee felt that the BCCI could have made it clear to the PCB at the very outset that the letter was merely a declaration of intent and not the MoU that Pakistan perceived it to be.”Such misapprehension – indeed these proceedings – would have been avoided if the BCCI, who proposed the letter, had – as it could so easily have done – made clear that it was only a declaration of intent,” the DRC stated.(With inputs from PTI)Also Read | ICC dismisses Pakistan Cricket Board’s compensation case against BCCIAlso Read | ICC should ensure bilateral ties between all countries: PCB chief

Cardiff: Captain Eoin Morgan is hoping for a better fielding effort as England seek to get their World Cup campaign back on track following their shocking loss to Pakistan. Bidding to win their maiden title in the sport’s showpiece, the hosts started their campaign with a convincing 104-run victory against South Africa before they stumbled in their second game, losing by 14 runs to Pakistan. They now clash with Bangladesh who shocked South Africa in an earlier match. Also Read – We don’t ask for kind of tracks we get: Bowling coach Arun”We didn’t deserve to win the game. But we played some really good cricket, two guys scored a hundred and we nearly chased down 350,” Morgan said in his pre-match press conference in the Welsh capital Friday. “We lacked a bit in the field. And that still remains the case. Hopefully we put in a better showing in the field,” the skipper added. Morgan searched for positives in the defeat. “But defeat presents a huge opportunity to learn more about your game and improve. Games where we have been defeated heavily have been the ones where we learned the most. Also Read – Bastian Schweinsteiger announces retirement, could join Germany set-up”We still managed to stay in the game, we remained in a headspace where we still believed in winning the game. “That shows a lot more to ourselves, probably more than to our supporters, they don’t see that all the time. They see an exciting team the majority of the time. But when we lose we see our character, the other side of our game.” Morgan said England would not change their aggressive approach in Saturday’s match here. “All we talked about is sticking to what we do well, looking at our strengths,” he said. “Previous to the tournament starting we talked about losing games — how would we react? What would we counter that with? “Everything comes back to focusing on ourselves, how we win games of cricket and get the best out of ourselves.” Four years ago, defeat by Bangladesh sent England crashing out of the last edition, but much has changed since then, with the hosts entering the tournament as the number one ODI side. Having beaten South Africa and pushed New Zealand all the way, Bangladesh are a serious threat. “It is going to be a difficult game. They are a good side and I think people underestimate them. We certainly don’t,” Morgan said. “They are a side that has played a lot of cricket, their senior players especially have played a lot of games, more so than our senior players so they are a threat. Hopefully we can play well and overcome them. “We were beaten by a better team in 2015. They deserved to win that night.”

Mounting “inhumane” attacks on humanitarian workers, as well as unacceptable demands made by armed groups, have forced the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to shut down some of distributions for up to one million hungry people in Somalia, the agency said today.Escalating attacks against WFP’s humanitarian operations in southern Somalia have made it “virtually impossible” for the agency to continue its work, it said in a statement.“WFP is deeply concerned about rising hunger and suffering among the most vulnerable due to these unprecedented and inhumane attacks on purely humanitarian operations,” it added.“WFP is an impartial, non-political humanitarian agency that has been working in partnership with the people of Somalia for more than 40 years, providing assistance to the poorest of the poor throughout Somalia’s years of conflict and before,” the agency underscored. “The recent pressures on our work from armed groups in southern Somalia are impeding our humanitarian mandate.”It is repositioning stocks from southern areas in case people begin to move away from areas where food distributions have been suspended. Six of its offices in southern Somalia are temporarily closed, and staff have also been moved to safer areas to ensure the food assistance continues to reach as many of those in need as possible.Staff safety is of paramount concern to WFP, and recent attacks, threats, harassment and demands for payments – for up to $20,000 every six months to ensure staff safety – by armed groups have choked the humanitarian food lifeline. Further, WFP has received demands to remove women from their jobs.Agency spokesperson Emilia Casella told reporters in Geneva that 95 per cent of the territory where WFP operations had been disrupted was controlled by the Al-Shabaab opposition group.In the rest of the Horn of Africa nation, which has not had a functioning government in nearly two decades, WFP continues to provide life-saving food supplies to over two-thirds of the people it has been targeting – or 1.8 million people. “Even in good years, Somalia is only able to meet 40 per cent of the food needs of its population through internal production,” WFP – whose operation to reach all Somalis in need is fully funded for the coming months – pointed out.On average in the past five years, only one-third of the food needed to feed all Somalis was to be locally produced.WFP is working closely with its partners to have supplies ready for Somalis moving within the country and also crossing borders into neighbouring nations. 5 January 2010Mounting “inhumane” attacks on humanitarian workers, as well as unacceptable demands made by armed groups, have forced the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to shut down some of distributions for up to one million hungry people in Somalia, the agency said today.
As one commune was vaccinated, meningitis cases turned up in neighbouring areas, but the World Health Organization (WHO) said while the Government of Burundi estimated that it needed 1 million doses of vaccine, only 455,000 doses were immediately available. The rest would take up to three weeks to arrive from WHO headquarters in Geneva.In its third round of vaccinations, WHO is currently inoculating 102,583 people in Ngozi Province, it said.Meanwhile, a weeklong anti-polio drive employing 1,500 trained local volunteers in the Central African Republic (CAR) and giving the second part of a two-dose vaccine has ended successfully, WHO and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said.Reports of two cases of the deadly “wild polio” in the northern part of the country were confirmed two months ago.
FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva presented on Tuesday the new regional Plan for Food Security, Nutrition and Hunger Eradication by 2025 at summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) in San José, Costa Rica.“This proposal is a tool to help CELAC countries design national plans to transform their commitment to eradicating hunger and extreme poverty in the region into a reality,” said Mr. Graziano da Silva, and later added via social media that CELAC leaders were considering the plan.FAO, in a press release issued Tuesday, said: “The plan was developed by FAO – with support from the Latin American Integration Association (ALADI) and the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) – at the request of CELAC governments.”“It is based on four broad pillars: strategy coordination at the national and regional levels, with a special focus on gender issues; sustainably ensuring access to safe and nutritious foods; widening school feeding programmes with a priority on addressing all forms of malnutrition, from under-nutrition to obesity, and; tackling the challenges posed to food security by climate change,” according to FAO.The plan seeks to identify and establish links that can generate “virtuous circles of development,” the food agency said, citing as an example linking family farming with school feeding programmes. According to FAO, Latin America and the Caribbean represent the only region in the world which has collectively achieved the first Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of halving the proportion of people who suffer from hunger by 2015. And the region is set to reach the more stringent World Food Summit goal of halving the total number of undernourished people.

OFTEN CONSIDERED A weed, corn salad is a super-hardy and low-growing winter salad with a mild, nutty flavour. It is one of the many winter-hardy salad leaves we sow in the late summer and early autumn to last through the winter.We generally do a couple of sowings every two to three weeks from September, to keep us going with occasional pickings of winter leaves until the new season salads arrive in spring.SowingI’ve used two different methods for sowing corn salad and haven’t noticed any real difference between the two. You can either sow it directly in the soil (in drills around 10cm apart) or in module trays for later transplanting (spacing the plants 10cm apart).Germination takes about 1-2 weeks. Corn salad will grow in most soils – it’s not fussy. It’s best sown at the end of the year, and won’t do so well in the hotter weather of summer. So it’s best sown from the end of August to October.GrowingKeep the area weed-free and moist if the weather is dry. Corn salad will get to about 10cm high and wide.HarvestingCorn salad will be ready to crop in about 10 weeks. You can either harvest the whole plant or cut them down at the soil and see if they will grow back (you might get a second growth this way). Alternatively, take the outer leaves only on plants to encourage re-growth. The plants will run to seed eventually in the spring if left in the soil. A groundnut or peanut oil will bring out the lovely nutty flavour in a salad.Recommended VarietiesVit, Lamb’s TongueProblemsMildew can be an issue in the autumn/ winter polytunnel if you don’t keep it well ventilated. Slugs will be partial to it too – so time to put the beer traps back in action.GIY TipsCorn salad is a surprisingly strong performer when it comes to nutrition and is one of the healthiest of all salads. It has three times as much vitamin C as lettuce, and more iron than spinach.Corn salad is often known as Lamb’s lettuce.

This recipe comes from New York Times contributor Florence Fabricant, so she calls the Lamb’s lettuce ‘mache’, naturally.Ingredients• 1 very small rack of lamb or 8 tiny well-trimmed chops• ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil• 2 ½ tablespoons sherry wine vinegar• ½ teaspoon minced fresh rosemary• ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard• Salt and freshly ground black pepper• 250g lamb’s lettuce, rinsed and driedDirectionsPreheat oven to 220 degrees C. Brush rack of lamb with a little olive oil and place in a shallow baking pan in oven. Roast for 20 minutes for medium-rare. Remove from oven.While lamb is roasting, heat vinegar with rosemary in a small, stainless steel saucepan until vinegar is reduced to little more than a tablespoon.Off heat, beat in the mustard and gradually whisk in remaining olive oil until well blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper.Place the lamb’s lettuce in a bowl and toss with all but 2 tablespoons of the warm dressing. Divide salad onto 4 plates. As soon as the rack is cooked, slice into individual chops and place 2 chops on lettuce on each plate.Moisten each chop with a little of remaining dressing and serve at once.Michael Kelly is a freelance journalist, author and founder of GIY.Click here for more GIY tips and recipes.

La mécanique cérébrale des corvidés, ces oiseaux intelligentsPubliant leurs travaux dans Nature Communications, des chercheurs allemands ont étudié la façon dont travaille, durant des tests cognitifs, le cerveau si particulier de ces oiseaux si intelligents que sont les corvidés.”Primates à plumes”, c’est le surnom parfois donné par les éthologistes aux corvidés. Les corbeilles, corneilles et pies notamment sont des oiseaux si intelligents qu’ils sont capables de fabriquer et utiliser des outils (très simples, bien sûr), de se rappeler un grand nombre de sites d’alimentation ou encore de planifier leur comportement social en fonction de celui des autres membres de leur groupe. Des capacités qui ne cessent de fasciner les spécialistes.Pour la première fois, des chercheurs de l’Université de Tübingen (Allemagne) ont étudié ‘en direct’ la physiologie à l’œuvre dans le cerveau de corvidés durant un comportement intelligent. Pour cela, ces scientifiques ont formé des corneilles noires (Corvus corone) à mémoriser une image donnée, pour la reconnaître, un peu plus tard, parmi les 2 images affichées sur l’écran tactile d’un ordinateur. Chaque oiseau devait, suivant la règle édictée par l’expérimentateur, indiquer du bec soit l’image déjà connue, soit l’image nouvelle. Les corneilles ont excellé à ce jeu, passant assez facilement, en outre, d’une règle du jeu à l’autre et s’adaptant aux changements d’images imposés parfois par les expérimentateurs.Intelligent différemment À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Ces derniers, durant les tests, observaient l’activité neuronale des corvidés au niveau du nidopallium caudo-latéral, une région du cerveau associée aux plus hauts niveaux de cognition chez les oiseaux. Les chercheurs ont pu nettement observer l’activation d’un certain groupe de cellules nerveuses lors de l’exercice “trouver l’image connue”, et l’activation d’un autre groupe de neurones lors de l’exercice “trouver l’image nouvelle”. C’est ce système cérébral qui permet la concentration et la souplesse mentale observées chez les corvidés mais atteintes par peu d’animaux. “Beaucoup de fonctions sont réalisées différemment chez les oiseaux, car une longue histoire évolutive nous sépare de ces descendants directs des dinosaures. Cela signifie que les cerveaux d’oiseaux peuvent nous montrer une ‘solution alternative’, une façon dont un comportement intelligent est produit avec une anatomie différente”, explique la neurobiologiste Lena Veit. “Nous pouvons tirer des conclusions […] en examinant les ressemblances et les différences fonctionnelles des zones cérébrales concernées”, conclut le Pr Andreas Nieder.Le 8 décembre 2013 à 19:17 • Maxime Lambert

The case said to be with insufficient evidence to go any further with the matter against Hinson, who had been held since late September — initially in Provo and then he was on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison in Grand Turk. No word yet on his status with the Police Force. Hinson had been suspended for his alleged role in the five fires and this loss for the prosecutor and the police means it is back to square one for the investigation. The public was enraged at the boldness of the incident and destruction of the car and then at the allegation that a police officer was believed responsible. Many thought the case was a slam dunk.

Kit Harrington aka Jon Snow in Game of ThronesFacebook/ Game of ThronesGame of Thrones season 8 may show the fall of Jon Snow. From the several speculations and the theories, it looks like Sansa Stark’s cousin brother won’t survive the end battle.Over the years, hundreds of theories have been discussed when it comes to Jon Snow in Game of Thrones. Ahead of its season eight’s premiere, we bring you some of the best theories about the King in the North that might be true or would change the show, even if something like this remotely happens.Jon Snow marrying Cersei Lannister:This is a far-fetched theory about Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister. Cersei has killed Ned Stark and on her orders, House Frey executed several key members from the Stark family. In the season seven of Game of Thrones, it was revealed that both Jon and Cersei have absolute contempt for each other but at the same time, Jon needs to save everyone from the Night King and Cersei wishes to rule all the Seven Kingdoms. If these two join hands and become partners, then they would become the strongest allies, who can put an end to the White Walkers. Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones season 8Game of Thrones/FacebookIf Jon Snow marries Cersei Lannister, then it will break the heart of Daenerys Targaryen and we might never know how the mother of the dragons will react to this betrayal.Jon Snow becoming Night King:If you don’t know how to put an end to your enemy, the best way is to join hands with him. There is this interesting theory about Jon Snow that suggests that after the death of Daenerys Targaryen and her two dragons, Jon Snow will be left alone and will have no idea how to end Night King. He will then understand that Night King wishes to transform him into a White Walker so that he can go and retire. Jon will accept the offer and will take all the White Walkers beyond the wall and will never come back.This sounds like a fairytale in which the Prince solves everything, but as we all know, Game of Thrones is anything but a fairytale. Jon Snow in Game of Thrones season 8Game of Thrones/FacebookJon Snow’s son is Azor Ahai:We know that Jon Snow is now in a relationship with his aunt Daenerys Targaryen. They might have a child in the upcoming season and their child would become the promised prince. The young prince will reunite all the Seven Kingdoms as it will have the blood of a dragon and a wolf. He would become the mightiest warrior and will ultimately sit on the Iron Throne.Kit Harington will reprise his role of Jon Snow in Game of Thrones season 8. The award-winning show will return in mid-April on HBO and other streaming services.
Kapil Dev with the World Cup trophy in 1983Twitter/Cricket World CupIt is a well-known fact that before the liberalisation of Indian economy, the cricketers who represented the country were paid salaries that are a pittance compared to what players of this current generation earn. Even 20-25 years ago, international cricketers were earning a fortune in comparison to the money that the likes of Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar made.When India won the 1983 World Cup, members of the victorious team hardly made any financial gains. In fact, Lata Mangeshkar, an ardent cricket fan herself, performed at a concert to raise money that can be given as a reward to the triumphant players.Now, a sheet listing the salaries of Indian players for a one-day game from the same year has appeared on social media thanks to sports journalist Makrand Waingankar. He tweeted a photo of this sheet, which contains the name of 14 cricketers in the squad and the team manager Bishen Singh Bedi, who were part of a one-day match played on September 21, 1983. The picture tweeted by WaingankarTwitterAll players as well as the team manager were given Rs 1500 as the match fee and Rs 200/day for three days as daily allowance. In total, the money amounted to Rs 2100 for each player and the manager.Some of the social media users tried to estimate how much Rs 2100 would amount to in modern times. One tweeter said it would be around Rs 30,000. This doesn’t sound all that bad but is still peanuts compared with what today’s cricket stars are making.The likes of Virat Kohli, who are in Grade A+ of the pay-scale, earn Rs 7 Crore per year. Even domestic cricketers are making Rs 35,000 per day for a 4-day game. You can see how things have changed.Many people, on seeing the date and the name of the players, assumed that this sheet relates to a match from the World Cup. All 14 players in the list were part of India’s World Cup-winning squad. Virat Kohli makes Rs 7 crore every year from his BCCI contractGetty imagesHowever, Waingankar revealed that this pay list is from an India vs Pakistan match played during latter team’s tour of India that year. It wasn’t an official ODI but a Prime Minister’s Relief Fund Match played at the iconic Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.
