KCR meets Stalin, bid for federal front appears a non-starter

first_imgChennai: Telangana Rashtra Samiti chief K Chandrashekhar Rao’s bid to rope in DMK in his proposed alternative front appeared to be a non-starter with the Dravidian party chief M K Stalin urging the Telangana Chief Minister to extend TRS’s support to the Congress.Continuing his efforts to bring together regional parties, Rao called on Stalin at his residence here and discussed with him his proposal for a federal front, DMK sources said. In the meeting that went beyond an hour, Stalin conveyed to Rao that his party was in a pre-poll alliance with the Congress and he had also pitched the name of Rahul Gandhi for the office of the Prime Minister.

Rao, who had days ago called on his Kerala counterpart Pinarayi Vijayan, exuded confidence in the deliberations that regional parties would emerge as a powerful force with a significant number of seats and neither the Congress, nor the BJP would have adequate numbers to form a government. In such an eventuality, the TRS chief told the DMK president that a government could be propped up by the regional parties with the support of “national parties,” a reference perceived to include the Left parties as well. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadPossible “post poll scenarios” that may merge and how a federal front could help regional parties and “southern States,” were put forth by Rao, sources added. To this,the DMK side,which was also represented by senior leaders Duraimurugan and T R Baalu, felt the situation was conducive only for a Congress-led government at the Centre. Also, the Dravidian party pointed out that toying with the idea for a regime steered by regional outfits at the Centre may not work in view of divergent state specific positions of some parties. The TRS is opposed to both Congress and Telugu Desam Party in Telangana. While Rao did not meet waiting reporters, DMK said the meeting was only a “courtesy,” call. Rao had in April 2018 called on Stalin and then DMK chief M Karunanidhi here. Earlier in the day, he offered prayers at the ancient Sri Ranganathaswamy temple at Srirangam in Tiruchirappalli. On May 10 he visited the Sri Ramanathaswamy Temple in Rameswaram after going to Kanyakumari. Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president K S Alagiri downplayed the meeting between the two leaders and asked journalists “why accord importance to the meeting…in India a third front is not possible and not practicable; State parties from Kasmir to Kanyakumari know this very well.” BJP Tamil Nadu unit president Tamilisai Soundararajan wondered what was Stalin’s “hesitation” in his meeting with Rao to assert that he only supported Rahul Gandhi.last_img read more

Video: Moroccan Mechanic Adds Grooves in Old Tires to Make Them…

Rabat- The person taking the video asked the mechanic what he was up to. The mechanic said this way the bus will brake better and will save MAD 5,000, the price of a new tire.The mechanic even acknowledged that doing so was illegal, but he did not stop. The new-looking tire is an attempt to deceive road control authorities. If caught, the mechanic said he would just pay a bribe and that doing so would be normal in Morocco.

On International Day Ban urges human solidarity to build new sustainability agenda

In his message on the International Day, Mr. Ban said this year’s observance comes as the world shapes a new sustainable development agenda to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the largest anti-poverty campaign in history, by 2015.Member States, the UN system, experts, representatives of civil society, business executives and millions of individuals from all corners of the globe, have come together with a shared sense of purpose to make the most of this once-in-a-generation opportunity. “The new agenda will centre on people and planet,” the Secretary-General continued, explainig that it will be underpinned by human rights and supported by a global partnership determined to lift people from poverty, hunger and disease.“It will be built on a foundation of global cooperation and solidarity,” he decalred.Indeed, the United Nations believes that solidarity with people affected by poverty and an absence of human rights is vital, he said adding that, based on equality, inclusion and social justice, solidarity implies a mutual obligation across the global community.“As we map our future development path, we must be firm in our commitment to champion solidarity and shared responsibility as part of the sustainable development agenda. These are fundamental values that must be upheld,” affirmed the UN chief.Only through collective action could the world tackle such far reaching issues as poverty and growing inequality, climate change, chronic poverty and major health challenges, such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.“On International Human Solidarity Day, I call for a renewed commitment to collective action. Let us act together as one to end poverty, achieve shared prosperity and peace, protect the planet and foster a life of dignity for all,” said Mr. Ban, echoing a call he made just two weeks ago when he introduced and advance version of his so-called “synthesis report,” which will guide negotiations for the new global agenda.In an informal briefing to the General Assembly, the UN chief on 4 December presented his report, The Road to Dignity by 2030: Ending Poverty, Transforming All Lives and Protecting the Planet, which aims to support States’ discussions going forward, taking stock of the negotiations on the post-2015 agenda and reviewing lessons from pursuit of the MDGs.It stresses the need to “finish the job” – both to help people now and as a launch pad for the new agenda. In the report’s conclusion, the Secretary-General issues a powerful charge to Member States, saying: “We are on the threshold of the most important year of development since the founding of the United Nations itself. We must give meaning to this Organization’s promise to ‘reaffirm faith in the dignity and worth of the human person’ and to take the world forward to a sustainable future.” read more

first_imgFormer Arsenal star Robert Pires insists Celtic Football Club is still a good club for young players to develop as their players.French youngsters, Olivier Ntcham and £9million striker Odsonne Edouard have followed the path taken by new Olympique Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.Dembele’s £20m exit from Celtic may have been shrouded in acrimony, Pires points to it as evidence that Parkhead can be a profitable place for youngsters to develop.“For these guys it’s a good opportunity to play for Celtic because they can play in the Europa League and fight for the title with Rangers,” Pires said, according to Daily Mail.“It is an opportunity to play with a great club such as Celtic, everyone in Europe knows them. Then, for the future, if you play very well you can join the Premier League, La Liga or Serie A.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“Dembele played very well when he was at Celtic. But, for any French player, an opportunity to sign for Lyon is very tempting because they are a very good club in France.”“I think he can help Lyon. He is fast, has very good skills and can score goals. He looks like he will be very important to that team.”“But when a player changes the country, they always need to adapt to this new life. Some fans and media tell you that playing football is the same everywhere. It’s not.”“When you change country it is totally different. In Scotland it might be more physical than France, so you need that period to adapt. But I think he has started well at Lyon, showing why they spent that money.”last_img read more

Sancho discusses speculation over his future

first_imgBorussia Dortmund youngster Jadon Sancho has discussed speculation over his future after rumors of a potential sale to Paris Saint-Germain surfaced in the press.The 18-year-old says he owes the Germans too much to consider leaving.The former Manchester City trainee has been linked with a move away from the Dortmund but has distanced himself from a switch to France or anywhere else for that matter.Speaking to Bild, as quoted by Mirror Football, the England international has five goals and eight assists already this season, says his only focus is on the title race in Germany.He said: “I’m not wasting any thoughts on a change, I owe a lot to BVB and I have a lot in mind with this team. I’m happy here and did not sign for so long for anything.”“By giving everything and giving our fans full throttle, we know how strong the Bavarians are but we also know that can beat them if we have a good day, especially at home.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“We have respect for them but also a lot of self-confidence and we all stick together.”Meanwhile, England manager Gareth Southgate has again called Sancho up and could feature against Croatia and the USA.“Jadon has tremendous belief in himself,” said the Three Lions boss. “He’s physically ready. I think with some of these younger players, going abroad isn’t such a big deal these days.”“The world is a small place. They know they can fly home in a couple of hours.

Bangladesh UNHCR to survey Rohingya regarding Myanmar return

Reuters File PhotoBangladesh will work with the United Nations refugee agency to determine if more than 3,000 Rohingya refugees will accept Myanmar’s offer to return home, an official said on Monday, nearly a year after a major repatriation plan failed.More than 730,000 Rohingya fled Rakhine for camps in Bangladesh after a military-led crackdown in August 2017 the United Nations has said was perpetrated with “genocidal intent”, but many refugees refuse to go back, fearing more violence.”It will be a joint exercise led by UNHCR,” Abul Kalam, Bangladesh’s Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner, told Reuters by telephone on Monday, referring to the refugee agency.Myanmar has cleared 3,450 people from a list of more than 22,000 refugees provided by Bangladesh, government spokesman Zaw Htay told a news conference in the capital Naypyitaw on Friday.”We have already negotiated with Bangladesh to accept these 3,450 people on August 22,” he said, adding they would be divided into seven groups for repatriation.A foreign ministry spokesman previously gave Reuters a figure of 3,540 refugees verified under the plan.Zaw Htay said officials had scrutinized the list to determine whether the refugees had lived in Myanmar and whether they had been involved in attacks on the military.The 2017 crackdown was preceded by attacks on security forces by insurgents calling themselves the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army, which Myanmar has classified as a terrorist organization.Previous attempts at persuading Rohingya to return to Rakhine have failed due to opposition from refugees. An effort in November sowed fear and confusion in the camps, and finally failed after refugee protests.last_img

Democratic Sheriff Candidate Ed Gonzalez Calls For Overhaul Of Harris County Jail

Gonzalez described the sheriff’s office as “stagnant” and “almost going backwards,” particularly in terms of the way it runs the Harris County Jail. He said overcrowding at the jail threatens the safety not only of inmates and guards but that of citizens throughout the county as well.“That’s why it worries me when we’re pulling money from patrols and investigations to simply plug in a hole on overtime costs in the jail, for example,” Gonzalez said, “because those investigators and those patrol officers are being overworked. It sometimes can lead to mistakes.”Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016Gonzalez admitted the problem predates the current administration under his opponent, Sheriff Ron Hickman. He said part of the solution might involve house arrest or citations rather than imprisonment for certain low-level offenses. But he also stressed the need to deal with the underlying causes of crime.“There’s three things that we’re addressing in law enforcement that do not have a law enforcement response, and that’s mental illness, poverty, and addiction. We’ve got to find community based solutions to that,” he said.Gonzalez argued that his experience as a three-term city council member and an 18-year veteran of the Houston Police Department makes him “uniquely suited” to help find those solutions.Click the play button below to listen to Houston Matters’ interview with Ed Gonzalez.

Scientists Fabricate Organic Transistor with Improved Performance

Scientists Fabricate Organic Transistor with Improved Performance

first_img To address this issue, a team of researchers from Stanford University in the US, the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology in Korea, and Sungkyunkwan University in Korea, has greatly improved the performance of n-channel organic semiconductors in transistors. They demonstrate that their transistor achieves the highest mobility for n-channel organic wire transistors known to date, and is comparable with the best p-channel organic wire transistors. Their fabrication method offers controlled alignment and density of the wires, which helps improve the overall device performance. The results are published in a recent issue of PNAS.“N-channel transistors are needed for complimentary circuits consisting of both p- and n-channel transistors,” coauthor Zhenan Bao of Stanford University told PhysOrg.com. “Such circuits consume less power and are easier to design then the ones with p-channel transistors only. They are less common because electrons flowing in these transistors are easily trapped by ambient oxygen and moisture. Therefore, special molecular design and synthesis is needed and only a few classes of molecules show good air-stable n-channel performance.”In their fabrication approach, the researchers used a solution fabrication method to assemble the organic microwires. Certain organic conjugated molecules, when placed in a hot concentrated solution, readily assemble into wires upon cooling or addition of a “bad” solvent (a solvent that the molecule is not readily soluble in). By controlling the cooling speed and solvent mixing ratio, the researchers could tune the diameter of the wire (in the range of tens of nanometers) and the length of the wire (from several millimeters to several tens of micrometers). Upon completion, the microwires exhibited a structurally perfect single-crystalline nature, with different locations of the same wire showing the same diffraction pattern geometry. In addition, the orientation of the molecules (pi-stacking) along the long axis of the microwires improved the wires’ charge transport efficiency, and overall wire performance.Next, the researchers used a filtration-and-transfer (FAT) alignment method to control the alignment and density of the microwires being deposited on the transistors. In general, organic microwires are difficult to work with due to their fragility, and they’re easily damaged by handling. In the FAT method, the microwires are aligned by fluid flow through a mask in a simple vacuum filtration setup. The method could successfully produce dense films of aligned and undamaged microwires, which is important for achieving a high and uniform current. Unlike most other assembly methods, the FAT method could also create multiple microwire patterns in different directions, simply by using an appropriate mask. As the researchers explained, the high mobility of the new n-channel organic transistors can be attributed to the high level of structural perfection of the microwires, along with good alignment and high density of the microwires on the transistors. Hopefully, this approach will lead to the fabrication of high-performance organic electronic devices, in addition to the transistors shown here. Zhenan added that solar cells and sensors are potential devices, and that the method should be applicable to inorganic nano- and microwire alignment, as well.More information: Joon Hak Oh, et al. “Solution-processed, high-performance n-channel organic microwire transistors.” PNAS, April 14, 2009, vol. 106, no. 15, 6065-6070.Copyright 2009 PhysOrg.com.

(PhysOrg.com) — Organic semiconductors are promising building blocks for many devices, from LEDs to transistors, offering potential advantages such as cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and high performance. Currently, most research in organic semiconductors has focused on p-channel semiconductors, which transport positively charged holes, rather than n-channel semiconductors, which transport negatively charged electrons. The choice of semiconductor depends on the application, and many applications require a combination of both types. However, the few n-channel semiconductors that exist today have performance that lags considerably behind their p-channel counterparts.

GUATEMALA CITY – Guatemalan rescuers searched Thursday for people trapped in the ruins of homes after apowerful earthquake killed 42 people and left thousands spending the cold night outside.Twenty-two people were still missing a day after the magnitude-7.4 quake in the southwestern region of San Marcos toppled homes and cut off power in several towns.The search had been called off during the night for safety reasons.Thousands of people in the town of San Marcos wrapped themselves in blankets to keep warm outside overnight as aftershocks continued to rock the mountainous region. Rescuers found three more bodies in the town of San Cristobal Cucho on Thursday and another one in El Recreo, an emergency response spokesman said.President Otto Pérez Molina said Thursday the death toll had risen to 42. Power was restored in 95 percent of homes, he added.The San Marcos Department, located at the border with Mexico and some 250 kilometers west of Guatemala City, bore the brunt of the earthquake, which crushed cars and spread debris on roads.In San Cristobal Cucho, an entire family of 10, including six children, died when their home was buried in rocks and earth that slid from a hill after the quake, Mayor Pedro Cardona said.Some 16,000 people were affected by the temblor, which was the country’s most violent seismic event since 1976, when almost 23,000 people perished. Authorities opened 11 shelters that can house 800 people.The earthquake was felt as far away as El Salvador and Mexico City.

Going Down Still

first_img The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has conducted its monthly interest rate survey for October 2017 values based on 4,519 reported loans from 20 lenders.The interest rates from September to October for 30-year fixed rates for homes costing less than $424,100 decreased by 3 basis points from 4.14 percent to 4.11 percent.Factoring in other types of mortgages other than a 30-year fixed, the average interest rate on all mortgages showed a decrease of 2 basis points to 3.97 percent from a previous 3.99 percent.The National Average Contract Mortgage Rate for Previously Occupied Homes Index, which calculates interest rates on homes with at least one previous owner, dropped to 3.98 percent for loans closed in late October, compared to 4 percent in September. Similarly, the average effective interest rate on all loans also declined—resulting in a 7 basis point drop from 4.08 percent to 4.01 percent, which is good news for homeowners but less fortunate for lenders.However, the average loan amount for all loans experienced an increase at $307,500 in October, which is up $8,000 from $299,500 in September.It’s worth noting that all reports, with the exception of the specified 30-year fixed, can include 15-year mortgages and adjustable-rate mortgages. The survey, however, does not include mortgages that were refinanced from another mortgage or balloon mortgages. Nor does it include mortgages that are insured or guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration or the United States Department of Veteran Affairs, multi-family loans, or loans on mobile homes.While the FHFA does not name the 20 lenders surveyed for the report specifically, it does specify that they include an array of commercial banks, mortgage companies, savings associations, and mutual savings banks.November’s index values will be released on Thursday, December 28.
