Road, transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader. File PhotoAwami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday urged BNP to reconsider its decision to boycott the upazila parishad election.|”I don’t know whether it is their (BNP’s) final decision,” he said at his office in Dhaka when reporters sought his reaction about BNP’s decision to refrain from contesting the polls.The upazila parishad election is scheduled to be held in March.”Their participation would have made the polls competitive,” Quader said. “The government will provide all assistance to organise an acceptable election. But it (polls participation) is up to them (BNP).”Responding to a question about holding parliament session without BNP, he said the party was keeping itself away. “Do we have to force them if they don’t come?” he asked.The ruling Awami League formed the government for a third consecutive term after winning the 30 December election with an overwhelming majority.Quader appreciated the decision of two Gano Forum MPs to take oath, saying that it was an affirmative step.He said prime minister Sheikh Hasina had invited all political parties on 2 February to a tea party where discussions can take place. He criticised Oikya Front for declining to attend the event.”We had dialogues with them twice before the polls. There could have been talks had they decided to come but their reaction was an outburst of negative political practice,” Quader added.
New Delhi: A fine of over Rs 5 lakh has been imposed on the NCERT for heavily pruning 33 trees and cutting five without permission from the Forest Department of Delhi government inside its campus on Aurobindo road here, an official said on Monday.Acting on a complaint from an NGO on August 7, a team of forest rangers visited the campus of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) and found that five trees were cut and 33 heavily pruned, the Forest Department official said.

A few days ago, the Department had issued a penalty of Rs 60,000 on the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) after trees in south Delhi’s Thyagraj Nagar were found to be in poor condition, while one was also found to be uprooted.The fine was imposed recently after a site inspection had taken place at both Thyagraj Nagar and Netaji Nagar, where the proposed redevelopment project is planned to take place, with both construction sites found to be dumping debris around the trees.
Kolkata: The long awaited Hindu Hostel is finally ready for occupancy. A special secretary of the Education department visited the hostel on Monday morning and the necessary certificates that include occupancy, gas connection and fire, were issued.Earlier, state Education minister Partha Chatterjee had told the Assembly on Thursday that steps had been taken to open the hostel on Monday. It may be mentioned that due to agitation of the students protesting against the inordinate delay in handing over the hostel, the convocation was held at Nandan and not in the Presidency University premises. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeProfessor Anuradha Lohia, vice-chancellor of Presidency University, thanked all agencies engaged in the renovation of the century-old hostel. The boarders were temporarily put up at a hostel in Rajarhat. Partha Ranjan Das was the architect and renovation work had started three years ago. Eden Hindu Hostel was constructed in 1886 and was meant for the students of Presidency College, who came to the city from the districts. The building was built with the funds raised by Ashley Eden and the architect was W B Gwyther, while Rai Khetter Chundra Banerjee was the contractor. Now, the hostel has been thrown open to Muslim students as well. There are six blocks in the building.

The old ovens have been replaced by gas ovens. The roof of the hostel, which had been badly damaged, has been repaired as well. The hostel plays an important role in Bengal’s history. The alumni includes India’s first President Rajendra Prasad, Meghnad Saha, Sukhamoy Chakraborty and Rathin Sengupta. Many meritorious students who hailed from erstwhile East Bengal, came to study at Presidency College and used to stay at the hostel. It was here that Subhas Chandra Bose, a former student of Presidency College, had picked up a quarrel with Professor Otten and was expelled from the institution.

The inexorable rise of subscription video-on-demand and the concomitant decline of advertising-based broadcasting is a well-established – and sometimes hotly contested – trend in the media distribution world.Drew Marcus (centre) and Steve Pruett (right) at the NAB ShowThe impact of streaming services on traditional video consumption patterns has been most strongly felt in the US. While over-the-air TV has seen uplift from cord-cutting – as Millennials combine streaming services with good old free TV rather than pay huge cable bills – the bigger story is that changing viewing habits are hitting traditional media.Broadcasters are not standing still. At the NAB Show this week, Steve Pruett, EVP and chief TV development officer at US local broadcast giant Sinclair said that his group could look to develop its own virtual MVPD platform and ultimately develop a wider SVOD offering to counter emerging challenges to over-the-air broadcasting.Sinclair, which has been building a national platform from which to launch new services, already offers a subscription service around The Tennis Channel. However, the rise of streaming outfits such as DISH Networks’ Sling TV has given traditional players such as Sinclair an outline of how the ‘skinny bundle’ model could be shaped to serve broadcasters’ interests.Speaking alongside Pruett, Drew Marcus, senior advisor at Guggenheim Securities, provided the context: he said that TV station stocks in the US were down 21% this year so far. Entertainment stocks in general were flat, he said. However, broadcast stations were only trading at only 5.7 times free cash-flow, indicating that public markets are concerned about their future.Subscriptions and direct-to-consumer plays are of course more complex than advertising-supported TV because they involve a direct relationship with consumers who will blame the broadcaster if something they are paying for isn’t working properly or if a cancellation of the service isn’t properly processed.Pay TV broadcasters already know about the subscription model, but those with sufficient scale are diversifying into low-cost direct-to-consumer offerings, meaning they too need to manage a direct relationship. Disney this week took the plunge with its launch of ESPN+, its new OTT TV service launched alongside a new version of the ESPN app.ESPN has of course invested heavily in the technology platform necessary to support its digital offerings through its investment in BAMTech. Other would-be OTT TV entrants among players that traditionally have focused either on advertising, or on selling channels to affiliates, may find the direct relationship more challenging.They are also pitching their tents in the OTT camp at a time when growth in penetration of SVOD is slowing down. Also this week, Ampere Analysis published research that showed no overall penetration increase of SVOD in the US for four consecutive quarters.The Ampere research did however find that there is still opportunity for growth through ‘service stacking’ – the accumulation of multiple, relatively low-cost subscriptions by individual households – as well as room for growth in international markets beyond the US.According to Ampere, the number of subscriptions per SVOD home the US stands at 2.79, much higher than the nearest European rival Sweden.While even that US number still leaves room for growth, winning a place on a household’s subscription list will prove more challenging the greater the number of services there is to choose from. Netflix and a handful of other services have the marketing power to be perceived as ‘must-have’ offerings, but services with more marginal appeal are likely to struggle, even if the price point is relatively low. The pay-back threshold could of course be lowered if broadcasters outsource the technical and subscriber management aspects of direct-to-consumer, but they still need to license content in a window that makes sense, or make their own content and potentially forego revenues from selling it on to third-party licensees.It’s also worth remembering that while one of the big merits of traditional pay TV was that it delivered predictable cash-flow through recurring subscription revenue, that ‘recurring’ part is a whole lot less certain in the OTT TV world. Here, subscriptions can typically be cancelled after a month, rather than after 18 months or two years, and service providers are competing for eyeballs with multiple other providers, rather than one or two alternative pay TV providers.Which is one reason why, to paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of broadcast’s death may be greatly exaggerated. Another speaker at the NAB Show, Lionsgate chairman Kevin Beggs, made the point that broadcast remains “an amazing business” and that, for most of the shows that studios produce, “the broadcast model is the most lucrative”.if that is true for a studio producing primarily scripted content in the self-proclaimed golden age of drama, it is probably also true for broadcasters themselves. Broadcasters know they need to diversify. They know that consumption patterns are changing. But they are unlikely to put all their eggs in the SVOD basket.
