Verification of tenants in bordering areas More than 1000 cases registered

first_imgNew Delhi: From a security point of view, bordering areas of Delhi are very sensitive. Even slight negligence in safety, at times, may have serious consequences. Nevertheless, it seems that people living in those areas are taking security measures too lightly.The city police have registered more than 1,000 cases during verification of bordering areas’ tenants. Police sources told Millennium Post that as many as 1,191 cases were registered under sections 188 (Disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of IPC in 11 districts. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder”Most of the cases were against landlords for ignoring the rule and rent out their properties without police verification of their occupants,” an officer said. Various police districts share their borders with other states. Through tenant verification, police can know the history of any occupant whether the person had any criminal record. Sources said that Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik, in a recent meeting, instructed all police officers to be vigilant in their respective districts. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings”The top cop also reviewed security measures including tenant verification,” sources said. Sources claimed that as many as 843 violations were found. The North East district registered 567 cases under section 188 of IPC whereas 375 cases were registered by Outer North district. The South district registered 229 cases. As many as 192 cases were registered by North West district. Adding further, sources disclosed that as many as 145 meetings were organised with bordering districts officers and 7,262 tenants living in bordering areas were verified. The city police also shared details of 2,418 tenants with bordering districts officers. Sources, explaining on tie-up and action against criminals operating across borders, said,” In this regard as many as 132 meetings organised with counterparts. Around 155 joint actions were taken against criminals.” Joint Commissioner of Police (Eastern Range) Alok Kumar, elaborating more on violations at bordering areas, “We look for unverified tenants. And we are registering cases of 188 IPC against landlords when we found that they have not got their tenants verified.” He further added that they also register 188 IPC cases against sim card dealers, cyber cafe and guest house owners for not maintaining proper records. Recently, during a tenant verification drive, North East district police arrested Sandalwood smugglers in the Welcome area.last_img read more

UN and partners unveil programme to combat West Africas growing drug trade

16 December 2010With drug traffickers in West Africa increasingly adjusting their tactics to avoid counter-narcotics efforts, the United Nations and partner organizations today launched a comprehensive, integrated programme to combat drug trafficking and organized crime in the region. The programme – the UN Office on Drugs and Crime Regional Programme for West Africa 2010-2014 – covers 16 countries and will respond to the needs of West African countries on the principle of shared responsibility, addressing the transcontinental nature of the challenge, in particular, the transatlantic route. It will focus on peace building, security sector reform, and national and regional institution- and capacity-building; as well as strengthening action in the areas of organized crime, trafficking and terrorism, justice and integrity, drug prevention and health, and awareness raising and research.The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has often raised the alarm over narcotics trafficking in West Africa, noting that the problem has been compounded by widespread corruption and money-laundering. In its 2009 report on transnational drug-smuggling, UNODC estimated that up to 100 tons of cocaine might have transited through West Africa that year. In some cases, the value of trafficking flows through the region surpasses the gross domestic products of the countries in West Africa, which are among the world’s poorest countries.The launch of the West Africa programme took place at a high-level meeting at UN Headquarters in New York, co-chaired by UNODC, the UN Office for West Africa and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), and in cooperation with the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the UN Department of Political Affairs and the International Criminal Police Organization, better known as INTERPOL. “The added value of UNODC facilitating the entire process will certainly lie in its particular mandate and experience, as well as in its role within the UN system as the main international forum to address crime and drug trafficking as a threat to international security at the global level,” the Executive Director of UNODC, Yury Fedotov, said at the launch. Established in 1997, UNODC is the UN agency charged with assisting countries in their struggle against illicit drugs, crime and terrorism.Mr. Fedotov said that West Africa has become a hub for cocaine trafficking from Latin America to Europe, with its widespread poverty and geographic location halfway between the two continents making it particularly attractive to narcotics smugglers and other organized criminal networks.He also noted that West Africa is a major transit route for counterfeit medicines, the smuggling of commodities and people for sexual exploitation, and risked becoming a major safe haven for terrorists if the narcotics trafficking problem remained unaddressed. Drug use has also been on the rise in the region, Mr. Fedotov added.The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for West Africa, Said Djinnit, described the programme as a “strong and effective alliance” of countries and organizations against organized crime in a region that “has been under severe attack by drug trafficking networks.”“The fight against drug trafficking and organized crime was an essential pillar for any conflict prevention and peace building strategy in West Africa,” said Mr. Djinnit said at the launch. “The UNODC Regional Programme will be key to streamlining support for the ECOWAS regional plan of action and efforts at combating this global threat to peace and security.”The regional programme is a culmination of an ECOWAS ministerial conference in Cape Verde in 2008, which resulted in a political declaration and regional action plan to combat drug trafficking and organized crime in West Africa. That meeting, followed by a multi-agency West Africa Coast Initiative, gave the impetus to the creation of the regional programme launched today. read more

Some of what was said Wednesday as threeway NAFTA talks got underway

WASHINGTON — Some quotes from Day 1 of the NAFTA renegotiation talks:“Our approach stems from one essential insight, we pursue trade, free and fair, knowing it is not a zero-sum game.” — Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.—“Trade is about people, it’s about creating the best possible conditions for jobs, for growth and for prosperity.” — Freeland.—“It is not up to Canadians to choose who is the government of the United States. That is the democratic choice of the American people, and we absolutely respect that choice.” — Freeland, when asked how Canada can negotiate with a U.S. administration that appears to have lost the confidence of business leaders.—“We want to protect NAFTA’s record as an engine of job creation and economic growth. We will work to modernize NAFTA, to bring it up to date. We’re going to take advantage of this opportunity to cut red tape for businesses and to harmonize regulations.” — Freeland.—“We feel that NAFTA has fundamentally failed many, many Americans and needs major improvement.” — American trade representative Robert Lighthizer.—“We cannot ignore the huge trade deficits, the lost manufacturing jobs, the businesses that have closed or moved because of incentives — intended or not — in the current agreement.” — Lighthizer.—“My hope is that together we will produce a result which moves us to freer markets, fairer and balanced trade and stronger ties between our three countries.” — Lighthizer.—“The process we begin today is not about going back to the past. It is about looking to the future. The issue is not about tearing apart what has worked. … For a deal to be successful, it has to work for all parties involved.” — Mexican lead minister, Ildefonso Guajardo.—“Each country has issues that they could bring forward. If we spent our time talking about these, all it would be is a family fight. … the three countries operate in very close relationship, we’re going to have differences and I don’t think it’s bad to have differences and having a healthy discussion around those.” — Canadian Federation of Agriculture president Ron Bonnett.—“Our stand is that we do no harm. This has been a good trade treaty for North American agriculture from Mexico to Canada and we want to make sure that we have our voice heard loud and clear, that we don’t want to harm the gains that we’ve had in it.” — American Farm Bureau Federation president Zippy Duvall. read more

Smartphone ownership way up Canadians addicted to their phones Google study

Smartphone ownership way up, Canadians addicted to their phones: Google study AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Michael Oliveira, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 29, 2013 8:42 am MDT TORONTO – Not only is smartphone ownership way up in Canada, users are getting increasingly addicted to their mobile devices, suggests a new report released by Google.Based on online surveys with 1,000 Canadians earlier this year, the report estimates that 56 per cent of adults were using a smartphone, up from 33 per cent in early 2012.About eight in 10 smartphone owners said they don’t leave home without their mobile device. And two-thirds of them said they had used their phone every day in the past week.About 35 per cent said they’d become so reliant on mobile connectivity that they’d give up TV before having to part with their smartphone.“Mobile has become a core part of how people live their lives today,” said Google Canada’s head of mobile advertising Eric Morris.“The study shows people are using mobile to change all aspects of their life, whether it’s their job, travel, shopping, the way they communicate with others, and specifically trying to understand the world around them.”About 78 per cent of the smartphone users said they connected to social media with their device and 52 per cent said they logged on daily.Morris said he was struck by the number of users who reported they were watching video on their phone. About 75 per cent said they had streamed video on their small screen and almost one in five said they did it daily.“People watch videos on the biggest screen they have available to them,” said Morris.“Sometimes that’s your 50-inch TV at home, sometimes that’s your tablet while you’re on the couch or in bed, and sometimes that’s the smartphone while you’re on the couch or travelling or even in the office.“I think one of the interesting things from this survey is there is a lot of mobile consumption that’s being done in the home…on home WiFi.”Other stats revealed in the report:— The average smartphone user had 30 apps installed on their device and had used an average of 12 in the past month. They had paid for an average of eight apps.— Just over one in four smartphone users had made an online purchase with their device. Of those users, about half had made a purchase in the past month and the same number said they shopped on their phone at least once a month.— About 77 per cent said they had searched for a product or business on their phone, and 27 per cent said they changed their mind about a purchase in a store after completing a mobile search. read more

Justice remains elusive for Guinea stadium killings – UN human rights chief

“The victims have already waited far too long,” said High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein in Geneva.The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said in a press release that on 28 September 2009, tens of thousands of opposition protestors were attacked with tear gas and live ammunition by Guinean security forces. At least 156 people died, 109 women were raped and more than 1,000 people were injured. The whereabouts of dozens of individuals remain unknown five years after the events. In the aftermath, a UN-led international commission of inquiry recommended that the Government should take appropriate measures to respond to this situation. The Guinean Government set up an investigation led by a team of three magistrates, but the probe has yet to be concluded and not a single prosecution has taken place so far.“Five years after the Guinea stadium events, justice remains elusive for the victims,” Mr. Zeid said. “It is particularly disturbing that at least two high-ranking officials who were charged in relation to the September 2009 violations remain in influential positions within the defence and security forces.” Mr. Zeid also noted that many officials have been reluctant to respond to court summons. “Immediate, concrete steps need to be taken to advance the quest for justice and the fight against impunity for the crimes and human rights violations that were perpetrated against unarmed civilians in Conakry in 2009,” he said, adding “a clear message needs to be sent from the highest levels that cooperation with the investigation is compulsory.” “The best way for Guinea to put this terrible episode behind it is to confront it honestly, deal with it in accordance with the law, and in so doing reduce the possibility of such crimes being committed again by the country’s authorities,” the High Commissioner said. read more

Crude Oil Prices May Fall to 20 per Barrel Goldman Sachs

first_imgThe global supply glut can push the crude oil prices to as low as $20 a barrel, says a global brokerage firm.Goldman Sachs said it sees chances of oil prices reaching that level in a worst case scenario.”Forward demand expectations are lower as the emerging market economic outlook continues to deteriorate,” the brokerage said in a report, according to USA Today. The bank has cut its crude oil forecasts for 2016, saying the oversupply situation resulting out of output growth from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), “resilient non-OPEC supply” and sluggish demand growth, might continue through next year.”The oil market is even more oversupplied than we had expected and we now forecast this surplus to persist in 2016,” said Goldman analysts including Damien Courvalin, reported Bloomberg. Goldman Sachs has revised its 2016 forecast for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) to $45 a barrel from earlier projection of $57 made in May. The bank has cut its estimate for Brent crude to $49.50 a barrel from $62.Brent crude prices ended 1.5% lower at $48.59 on Friday, while the WTI closed at $44.63 a barrel.Oil prices have fallen by more than 50% in the past 12 months due to rising concerns over the supply glut. Major oil exporters like Saudi Arabia are reluctant to cut the output, fearing loss of market share.However, the oil production in the US, a main cause for a slump in oil prices, has recently shown some slowdown amid falling prices.”While it is still uncertain about where, when and how the full supply adjustment will take place, we can say with far greater confidence that oil supply growth in North America will likely slow down if not reverse given recent drilling and investment patterns,” Goldman said.”We continue to view US shale as the likely near-term source of supply adjustment,” it said.Meanwhile, Iran is expected to resume its oil supply once the Western sanctions over its nuclear programme are lifted. Iranian oil exports could worsen the oversupply situation in the oil market.last_img read more

Telehealth: Have We Passed the Tipping Point in Clinical Use?“Hospital leaders must carefully examine their strategic and operational plans, and assess the relevance of these new technologies or infrastructure initiatives for their organizations. Our list shows them what’s coming around the bend so they don’t miss out on the newest innovations or get caught up in hype that can lead to a costly mistake,” says Robert Maliff, director, applied solutions, ECRI Institute.For added convenience, each entry includes actionable recommendations in a quick-glance “What to Do” section. Professionals are also encouraged to join ECRI Institute’s new LinkedIn Group, “Emerging Healthcare Technologies in Patient Care,” for further discussion of these topics.The Watch List reflects the unbiased, independent judgment of the Institute’s multidisciplinary staff of clinical and technical researchers, engineers, risk management specialists and healthcare planners and consultants. It is also informed by the work that ECRI Institute performs as a contractor to the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality for the National Healthcare Horizon Scanning System.For more information: www.ecri.org/2015watchlist A 3-D printed tungsten X-ray system collimator. The tungsten alloy powder is printed into the form desired and is laser fused so it can be machined and finished. Previously, making collimators from Tungsten was labor intensive because it required working with sheets of the metal to create the collimator matrix.  News | Medical 3-D Printing | May 03, 2019 New Technique Allows More Complicated 3-D Bioprinting Bioengineers have cleared a major hurdle on the path to 3-D printing replacement organs with a breakthrough technique… read more Henry Ford Hospital’s ViewRay MRIdian linear accelerator system allows real-time MRI-guided radiotherapy.
