Endearing tale of a Bengali household

first_imgMukherjee Dar Bou is a story based on a modern dysfunctional family majorly highlighting the complex, intricate yet caring relationship of a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. The story revolves around a Bengali home maker whose name is not known till the end of the film, and who is referred as ‘Mukherjee Dar Bou’ throughout. Mukherjee Dar Bou (Aditi) is married for more than ten years and has a daughter of six years old. Aditi’s married life was usual but it takes a turn when her father-in-law passes away. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainAditi Mukherjee’s (Koneenica Banerjee) mother-in-law (Anushuya Majumdar) starts behaving oddly after her father-in-law’s death which makes the situation difficult for her. After a series of altercations between the two, Aditi decides to grab the bull by its horns, only to discover that the change hasn’t been sudden — society has been programming them to keep crossing swords. It’s often said that films hold up a mirror to society. But only a handful can do it like Mukherjee Dar Bou. Every woman, mother, daughter, mother-in-law will connect on a deep level with this a family drama. It reminds one that every big picture is a collection of seemingly inconsequential dots – that actually define how beautiful or ugly the overall picture is. And obviously, every dot matters. These dots are the actions and words that make up our everyday lives, those almost mechanical aspects of our personality that define how we act or react under different circumstances. And little do we imagine that even the most inconsequential of actions can leave an indelible scar on someone else’s mind. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardThe beauty of the film lies not in dwelling on these scars, but in showing a way how even such stubborn scars can be wiped off with a pinch of understanding and love. It’s about repairing human relationships slowly. And in today’s world, when ‘I’s dominate our lives, it’s reminds us how ‘we’ can solve a lot of problems. Presented by Nandita Roy and Directed by Pritha Chakraborty, it’s a simple endearing tale of a Bengali household.last_img read more

Pandya Rahul back in form Warner warns World Cup rivals

first_imgNew Delhi: Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul’s stellar show drowning their off-field distractions, David Warner sounding a warning bell to his World Cup rivals and a 40-year-old Imran Tahir turning the clock back were some of the takeaways from the just-concluded IPL. While Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s ‘Dad’s Army’ nearly did an encore, Mumbai Indians’ consistency on the big day paid off again during a season where there were more than 30 last-over finishes. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuIn a World Cup year, it was imperative that the focus would be on international stars and the contenders for the silverware have had the form and fitness of their stars analysed threadbare over 50 days. For tournament favourites India, the foremost gain has to be Hardik and Rahul’s performance. The enormously gifted Hardik and the very stylish Rahul seemed to have channelised all their energies on the field during the past seven weeks to produce results that will augur well for India in the upcoming World Cup in England. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersBack after serving a temporary ban for their trash talk, IPL was a platform for the best friends to get their focus back in the game, and they did so in a glorious fashion. Kings XI Punjab couldn’t make it to the play-offs but Rahul did his bit opening the innings, scoring 593 runs and finishing second behind David Warner (692) in the run-scorer’s list. His approach was classical and the six fifties and one hundred will certainly keep him in high spirits if the team management expects him to bat at No. 3 or 4 in the mega event. For Hardik, the IPL triumph couldn’t have come at a better time as he, time and again, proved why he is called the ‘game-changer.’ 402 runs at a strike-rate of 191 plus, 29 sixes, 14 wickets and 11 catches is stuff of any all-rounder’s dreams, statistics that India captain Virat Kohli can find solace in despite his own franchise RCB’s disastrous show. MI skipper Rohit Sharma said: “Hardik is the best example. Before the IPL, he didn’t have a good time, was injured, and missed a few games as well. But he has been tremendous for us — both in batting and bowling.” Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah’s haul of 19 wickets each was an indicator of their wicket-taking ability. David Warner’s 692 runs is one of the best comeback stories of IPL and his form will certainly keep his World Cup opponents on guard. His former captain Steven Smith found a bit of touch towards the end of his IPL campaign, which translated into runs during the practice games against New Zealand.last_img read more

Kenney says Ottawa to proceed with income splitting despite report saying it

OTTAWA — Employment Minister Jason Kenney says the Harper government has no intention of backing away from its income splitting pledge, despite a new report concluding the plan would exacerbate income inequality and bestow the most benefits to the West.Kenney made the statement in the House of Commons on Tuesday while debating an NDP motion to do away with the idea.The report by the left-leaning Broadbent Institute concluded that income splitting would benefit the most affluent single-income families, cost about $3 billion, bestow no benefits to 90% of Canadians, and transfer a disproportionate amount to families in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Conservative strongholds with the strongest economies.“We will treat the family as an economic unit because it is an economic unit“We confirm that it is absolutely our intention to keep that commitment … to introduce income tax fairness, to end the discrimination against certain families, to end the unfairness,” Kenney declared.“We will treat the family as an economic unit because it is an economic unit,” he added, arguing that a family that chooses to keep one spouse at home to care for children or the elderly should not be punished in the tax code for the decision.In 2011, the Conservatives pledged to allow the transfer of up to $50,000 from the higher-earning spouse in a family with children under 18 to the lower earner, thereby reducing the overall tax bite. It said it would introduce the legislation as soon as the budget is balanced.But while the proposal appears to be popular with Canadians, the latest Broadbent study — as have others before it — shows the vast majority of families would see no benefit, because they either have no children under 18, have spouses with similar incomes or are single-parent families.The latest study breaks new ground in finding wide regional disparity in how the benefits will be distributed.It turns out that among the target group — families with minor-age children — the biggest winners by far reside in Alberta, where the average annual tax saving would be $1,359, while families in Saskatchewan come in second at $1,070. Those two provinces, which have a combined 42 federal ridings, sent 40 Conservative MPs to Ottawa in the 2011 election.Families in Prince Edward Island would get the least average benefit at $488, followed closely by Quebec families with children, which would average $510 in benefits. Those two provinces were among the least productive for the Conservatives, electing only six Tories among their combined 79 MPs in 2011.By ascending order of benefits, qualifying Nova Scotia families would average $727 in benefits, followed by Manitoba ($772), New Brunswick ($787), British Columbia ($853), Ontario ($874) and Newfoundland ($925).Broadbent Institute executive director Rick Smith has no explanation for the regional disparity other than that the program as unveiled was designed for a particular type of family — the so-called “Leave It to Beaver” traditional home with a principal breadwinner and a stay at home spouse who takes care of the children.“It turns out there are few families of that type, but there are more of them in Alberta than in Quebec,” he said.To benefit the most, one spouse must make $100,000 more than the other and have a taxable income above $136,270, the highest marginal rate.Peter J. Thompson/National Post Of families with children under 18, the average tax saving is calculated at $841, although that includes the 54% of those households that receive no benefit at all.But for 147,000 Canadian families with a high-income breadwinner, the average benefit would be $7,128.“If the government set out to specifically design a policy to make inequality worse, this would be it,” Smith said.“This policy is an inequality generating machine.”The lack of broad-based benefits is expected to be a major campaign issue should the Conservatives go ahead with income splitting in next year’s budget. It was one reason cited by the late finance minister Jim Flaherty when publicly expressing doubts about the program earlier this year, touching off a fire storm among Conservative MPs who remain committed to seeing it implemented.Kenney was one of the ministers who publicly disagreed with Flaherty and said the government would keep its promise.Although polls show income splitting is popular, Smith believes one reason is that most Canadians assume they will benefit, when in fact they likely won’t.Without seeing the results of the study, which was given to The Canadian Press prior to the official release Tuesday morning, Andrea Mrozek of the Institute of Marriage and Family said income splitting can be implemented “the right way” so as to spread the benefits more broadly.“We can implement this in a way that benefits a bigger group of families. For example, we have always looked at the French model, which allows a single parent to split with a child, so thereby benefiting from income splitting,” she said.According to the Broadbent study, which was based on analysis by Tristat Resources, that would benefit an additional 20% of families.Tax policy expert Jack Mintz of the University of Calgary believes unequal benefits are unavoidable, but can be at least partially mitigated by other means, including increasing the tax credit for child-care costs.Still, Smith says there are far superior ways of delivering tax relief to hard-pressed families, such as enriching the Child Tax Benefit for lower-income families, a similar conclusion reached by the authors of the C.D. Howe study.“We wouldn’t be so concerned about this if it weren’t so darn expensive,” said Smith. “This would cost the federal treasury $3 billion a year, so we are talking about a wealth transfer from nine of 10 Canadians to the wealthiest amongst us.” read more

Big bucks for rural internet cell service

The campaign to bring high-speed internet to all corners of southwestern Ontario received another shot in the arm on Wednesday.The Ford government announced $63.7 million in new funding for the Southwestern Integrated Fibre Technology (SWIFT) initiative at a media event in downtown Simcoe.The announcement is part of the Ford government’s $315-million commitment to bring high-speed internet and more reliable cellphone reception to under-serviced areas of the province.The province last month made a similar announcement of $71 million for improved digital connectivity in eastern Ontario.“With all the things that make Norfolk County amazing, there are still homes and businesses that lack high-speed internet, and that’s unacceptable,” Monte McNaughton, the province’s Minister of Infrastructure, said in front of Joy’s Cafe on Robinson Street.“In this economy, to be disconnected is to be disadvantaged. Things take a while to get from the cities to the town, but I think we have waited long enough for broadband.”The $190-million SWIFT initiative is underwritten by Ottawa, Queen’s Park and member municipalities in southwestern Ontario. The money will be used to run fibre-optic trunk lines into rural areas where market forces alone would not provide them.Similar in scope to the drive for rural electrification 100 years ago, SWIFT’s mandate is to provide high-speed internet to every farm and rural property regardless of how remote.Given the rural nature of the initiative, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affair is overseeing expenditures in this area. As such, Ontario Agriculture Minister Ernie Hardeman was also in Simcoe for Wednesday’s announcement.Hardeman said SWIFT and the province’s support for it are about making rural Ontario “business ready.” In his remarks, Hardeman said high-speed connectivity is no longer optional for the serious agricultural enterprise.“A lot of farms would come to a standstill if not for the internet,” Hardeman said.Haldimand-Norfolk MPP Toby Barrett, host of the event, agreed.“With modern agriculture, you can’t get into a combine with a wrench in one hand without a computer of some kind in the other,” Barrett said. “Imagine now the possibilities for our farms.”SWIFT was launched three years ago by the Western Ontario Wardens’ Caucus. Fifteen rural municipalities undertook the project to address the growing gap between rural and urban connectivity.A number of large, urbanized municipalities such as London, Orillia and Niagara Region have since signed on as key hubs for the delivery of digital services.Nearly two years ago, this prompted some Norfolk County officials to worry that the larger centres would flex their muscle to gain a disproportionate share of SWIFT funding.Port Rowan Coun. Tom Masschaele, Norfolk’s representative to the SWIFT board of directors, says these concerns have proven unfounded.Masschaele reported Wednesday that Norfolk County has moved to the top of SWIFT’s priority list according to the needs criteria the organization has set for itself. This criteria includes miles of rural road, population, and prevalence of dead zones where wireless internet is ineffective.“I’m confident this is going to be what I was looking for and expecting to see from this project,” Masschaele said.“In terms of need, we are No. 1. That’s why this announcement is in Simcoe today. I’m thrilled with the way this is working.“At the outset, I was skeptical. But members of the SWIFT board are very conscious of the equity aspect of this. They get it.”MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

UN agencies surging staff funds to meet urgent humanitarian needs in Iraq

Iraq: new IDPs map by province – as of 18 June 2014. Credits: UN Iraq “The most vulnerable and poorest families have already experienced their share of tragedy over the last few years,” said WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin in a press release summing up her time in Iraq, were she met families who have fled from the violence in Mosul and held high-level talks with the Kurdistan Regional Government and other officials.“Many are displaced in very harsh conditions. Lack of services, support and insecurity is forcing them to move around – in too many cases making these families difficult to reach.”Ms. Cousin said that in Erbil, she met with displaced people at a Kalak transit camp between Mosul and Erbil. They said in newly erected tents and makeshift shelters in 45 degrees Celsius heat, saying they fled with only the clothes on their backs.“Only the strong and lucky, who could walk for hours in this scorching heat or those who have the means to travel by car, arrived here at the transit camp,” she said. Among them was a man from Mosul, who told her he was worried he would not be able to fast during the upcoming holy month of Ramadan in harsh conditions with little access to water, electricity and other necessities.“The UN and the entire humanitarian community are surging staff, releasing funds and drawing on all available stocks to assist people affected by the fighting and meet the urgent growing needs,” added Ms. Cousin. WFP has said it needs $88 million for its operations in the country through the end of the year.Also, the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) today warned that the insecurity in the country could cause widespread hunger. The UN agency is calling for $12.7 million to provide support to farming families. The areas of the greatest conflict, including Nineveh, produce about one-third of the country’s wheat and barley. Speaking on behalf of the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) and the UN agencies in the country, Nickolay Mladenov, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, said that as the environment becomes increasingly sectarian, the UN’s approach to dealing with the humanitarian conflict becomes very vital. “Our assistance continues to be provided in an impartial manner to all,” he underlined. read more

Chaos and missed flights at Gatwick as IT error forces staff to

He said a “poor chap” with a two-way radio was trying to keep hundreds of people up to date. But Elizabeth Humphries, who describes herself as a Canadian mezzo-soprano, described Gatwick as “appalling”, insisting the situation was “typical Britain”.Rob Fahey, from Tokyo, said it was “utter chaos” at south terminal, claiming it was evidence of Britain’s “crumbling infrastructure”.In a tweet showing people crowding around a whiteboard, he said: “This tiny whiteboard is the only departures information in Gatwick Airport right now; every screen is offline.  “Gatwick would like to apologise to any passengers who were inconvenienced by this issue.”Earlier in the day, he said a “handful of people have missed their flights” as a result of the problem, which is understood to have started at around 8.20am on Monday.  Airport staff write on a whiteboard at GatwickCredit:Howard Goller/Reuters Gatwick staff resort to writing flight information on whiteboards as IT error cause tourists to miss flightsCredit:Nigel Lee/Edmund von der Burg Those waiting to depart scrambled to get close enough to read the temporary boards in the departure lounge, before the airport’s technicians managed to project a computer document onto some of the screens around lunchtime. Not everyone caught up in the furore criticised the airport. Actress Kirsty Malpass, who appeared in Jerry Springer: The Opera, tweeted her love for Gatwick’s “old school” and “analogue” approach. She said: “All the information screens down. Could be chaos. But thanks to an old school white board and a lot of people scurrying around with markers and erasers it is surprisingly calm and ordered.”Vodafone’s engineers fixed the cable at around 4pm, but there were further delay as technicians had to reboot the airport’s systems.  Normal service was eventually resumed just after 5pm, and a spokesman told The Telegraph: “The airport’s manual contingency plan – which included displaying information manually in the terminals and having extra staff on hand to help direct passengers – worked well and tens of thousands of passengers departed on time and no flights were cancelled.  Appalling @Gatwick_Airport with broken monitors and a tiny white-board for announcing gates.

Britain’s second busiest airport descended into chaos on Monday as staff were forced to write flight times and gate numbers on whiteboards with marker pens after an IT failure. Passengers at Gatwick had to rely on handwritten information for each departure as a damaged Vodafone fibre cable caused every digital departure board in the south and north terminal to black out.Some tourists missed their flights due to the issue, which saw several airport workers gathered around a number of makeshift display boards trying to update the details. Taking instructions through handheld radios, Gatwick announcers had to to use loud hailers to alert passengers of any changes. The airport’s website was also affected by the outage, which lasted almost eight hours.  A Vodafone spokeswoman told The Telegraph Monday morning: “We have identified a damaged fibre cable which is used by Gatwick airport to display flight information.”Our engineers are working hard to fix the cable as quickly as possible. This is a top priority for us and we are very sorry for any problems caused by this issue. We are keeping Gatwick airport constantly informed of progress.”It is understood the cable was underground.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Strawberries and cream goes vegan as Wimbledon offers variation for first time

Andy Murray, pictured enjoying some Wimbledon strawberries in 2005 Credit:Phil Cole/Getty Strawberries and cream are enjoyed in abundance at Wimbledon Wimbledon has sourced its strawberries from the same Kent farm for nearly 30 years, and each serving has consistently contained exactly ten pieces of fruit, despite changes in size and harvest.They are picked daily from sunrise at Hugh Lowe Farms in Mereworth, near Maidstone, before being delivered to the All England Lawn Tennis Club by 10.30am. The farm provides around 61,700lb (28,000kg) of strawberries to the SW19 site every year, with any surplus made into jam and sold in the club house. Sales have increased each year and throughout the coming fortnight, 190,000 servings will be doled out to spectators, drizzled in 10,000 litres of cream. The first “conscious effort” to include some vegan options on site at the Championships was made last year but Mr Davies admitted that although popular, they were “difficult to find”.Yet in the last 12 months, the popularity of veganism has “ballooned” and he acknowledged it was critical that Wimbledon, as the largest catering event in Europe, reflected that. Mr Davies insisted that the introduction of a plant-based cream was not borne of pressure from spectators or campaigners but was simply a reaction to changing habits.“Our job is to try and anticipate what our spectators are looking for and clearly, when there is such a marked move in the UK marketplace it is incumbent on us to respond,” he said.“It’s about making sure we don’t exclude people from enjoying our signature dish.”This year, every one of the food kiosks, cafes and restaurants on site, from the walled garden to the tea lawn, will feature vegan options and Mr Davies is expecting a “reasonably significant uptake”.They have all, including the cream, been through rigorous taste tests throughout the year. Allergens too, form a key part of the decision making process to ensure the options are as accessible as possible. Strawberries and cream are enjoyed in abundance at WimbledonCredit:Philip Toscano/PA  A man dressed as a strawberry at Wimbledon Credit:Jordan Mansfield/Getty Andy Murray, pictured enjoying some Wimbledon strawberries in 2005   A man dressed as a strawberry at Wimbledon  Strawberries and cream is Wimbledon’s “hero” product, its signature dish that has been served up to hungry spectators since the Championships began in 1877.But this year, for the first time in the tournament’s history, the iconic summer desert is getting a makeover to bring it in line with modern trends.Tennis fans flocking into the SW19 ground next week will be offered the option of vegan cream, made with soya, to reflect the rapidly growing popularity of a meat-free diet.Anthony Davies, head of food and drink at Wimbledon, said the decision had been made to ensure spectators had a choice and that its menus were as “relevant” as possible.“Clearly we need to respond to the UK market place,” he told the Telegraph.“Veganism and flexitarianism have seen a massive growth over the last 12 months in the UK and therefore it seemed pretty obvious to us that we needed to address that in a number of ways but importantly, in our hero product and signature item.” Mr Davies said his team took a “very forensic approach” to reviewing what works each year, looking at sales data as well as the wider market as they formulate each year’s menu.“It’s important for us to stay relevant but equally to hold the tradition and heritage of the hero Wimbledon ingredients that are  at the very heart of what we do,” he added.”We work for the 50 weeks before the championships to perfect our recipes.“The vegan strawberries and cream is our biggest development this year and will impact the majority of people as it’s such an iconic dish.“There are lots more people choosing to eat less meat so for us, the importance of having that choice, quality and great taste across all of our options is really important.”The tradition of eating strawberries and cream at Wimbledon dates back to the very earliest incarnation of the championships, which coincided with the strawberry season at a time when afternoon tea was very much in vogue.Although the season is now much longer due to modern growing methods, the dish has become synonymous with the event.The Vegan Society said the decision to offer a vegan option reflected the rapid growth in veganism in the UK, which has quadrupled to 600,000 vegans, or 1.16 per cent of the population, in four years.Spokeswoman Sam Calvert said: “The more prestigious events want to cater well and reflect the market and more and more people now prefer a plant-based alternative, some just for environmental or health reasons.” She said soya cream had a similar texture to single pouring cream.

Sexton penalty miss proves crucial as Ireland are denied at the death

first_imgThe miss proved crucial as New Zealand committed everything to the final attack and Dane Coles teed up Ryan Crotty up to dot down in the left corner. The crowd called for a forward pass but it was a forlorn hope.There was the added, late drama of Cruden being asked to re-take his conversion as Irish runners rushed the out-half and allowed him a second bite of the cherry. He took it and New Zealand finished 2013 with 14 wins from 14 games.Like rugby? Follow TheScore.ie’s dedicated Twitter account @rugby_ie >As it happened: Ireland v New Zealand, November Tests IRELAND WERE BEATEN by a stoppage-time try from Ryan Crotty and denied a history-making feat against New Zealand.Having led 22-7 at half-time Ireland could not hold out the All Blacks and were pipped at the post in heartbreaking fashion. A missed penalty from Jonathan Sexton on 73 minutes proved crucial and Aaron Cruden’s conversion, which he was asked to re-take, completed a remarkable turnaround.The players, including a concussed Brian O’Driscoll, applauded New Zealand off the pitch after their 24-22 win, their 27th Test victory in 28 games against Ireland.Ireland got off to the perfect start after three minutes when Conor Murray backed himself to gun for the line. Tommy Bowe was screaming for the ball on the right wing but the scrum-half pinned his ears back and touched down despite the attention of three black-shirted Kiwis. The decision was ultimately made by the TMO but Murray was already in his own half and receiving back slaps from his teammates.New Zealand pressed for an immediate response but manic Irish defence saw the ball ripped from Ma’a Nonu’s hands and cleared. The charged-up crowd had more to celebrate soon after as Rory Best dived over within a blade of grass from where Murray scored. Best went off soon after with an arm injury but his departure was barely noticed as another try was on the way.Rory Best dives over to score for Ireland. INPHO/James CrombieThe All Blacks sought to breakthrough Dave Kearney’s flank but pressing defence saw Israel Dagg spill a pass. Kearney snapped it up and sprinted flat-out for 80 minutes; he would not be caught by Aaron smith. Sexton’s conversion struck the post but the lead was 19-0 after 19 minutes.New Zealand got on the board after 25 minutes when Aaron Cruden put in a lovely grubber kick, which bounced fortuitously for Julian Savea to snaffle and dot down. The creator converted and the first semblance of doubt emerged. Ireland rallied well, however, and almost got try number four when Devin Toner went close out on the left flank. They earned a penalty off an attacking scrum as Mike Ross got the better of Wyatt Crockett and Sexton made it 22-7, which it remained until half-time.New Zealand arrived out early for the second-half but found the Irish team out on the pitch already. There were a number of injury and scrum hold-ups in the opening stages but the visitors gradually worked their way into the Irish 22. Dagg thought he had grounded the ball out wide but Murray and the elder Kearney did enough to hold him up.Superb Irish defence looked to have spurned the All Blacks of scoring opportunities between the 49th and 52nd minutes but Devin Toner made a needless obstruction to hand Cruden a simple penalty chance that he did not miss.Referee Nigel Owens then penalised Sean O’Brien for failing to release the tackled man at the breakdown. Cruden’s kick swayed wide and the home fans could breathe again. Ireland then lost Brian O’Driscoll to concussion and Peter O’Mahony would hobble off soon after. The replacements would be required to match the intensity of the starting XV.Ireland were struggling to get out of their half as the game went into its final quarter. Sexton and Boss put in big tackles on Richie McCaw and Kieran Read but the black waves kept rolling and Ben Franks burrowed over on 64 minutes. Cruden converted and there were just five points in it.The home side dipped into their energy reserves and fought their way up the field. Murray put in a superb grubber that forced Beauden Barrett to concede a lineout and a rolling maul ensued. When the Kiwis dragged it down, Owens whistled for a penalty but Sexton’s kick was right and agonisingly wide.last_img read more

Poll Is Cyprus right to tax peoples savings

first_img Poll Results: Yes (212) CYPRUS POLITICIANS FACE an uphill battle today to pass the EU’s bailout deal for the island with its deeply unpopular proposal to tax people’s savings.The one-off  bank levy is unprecedented in EU bailouts. The move is aimed at getting money from rich depositors – particularly Russian oligarchs, who are believed to have billions in Cyprus’s banks – who will pay the most amount of money, but will affect anyone with any money in a savings account. It will also reduce the amount of money that the country will need from EU creditors in the bailout.So today we’re asking: Is Cyprus right to tax people’s savings?

Noonan chases Irish version of Greek deal on ECB profits

first_imgUpdated, 13:01MICHAEL NOONAN has suggested that Ireland’s next mission with European leaders will be to try and get them to hand over the profits they might make from any Irish government bonds owned by the European Central Bank.The finance minister has said Ireland is looking closely at a concession given to Greece, to see if similar arrangements could be sought by Ireland as it looks to draw the line under its EU-IMF bailout.An agreement struck by Eurozone finance ministers in November sees each member state agree to forego the profits that they should receive because of the ECB’s investment in Greek government bonds.The ECB’s ‘securities market programme’, which was particularly active in 2010, saw the Frankfurt-based bank become an active player on the second-hand bond market – hoovering up bonds issued by Eurozone countries in an effort to keep the cost of borrowing artificially low.The bank currently owns €205 billion worth of bonds issued by Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Italy and Spain – with its portfolio of Irish bonds carrying a total face value of €14.2 billion.Ordinarily, any profits made by the European Central Bank are distributed to national central banks, and then on to each national government – but last November leaders agreed to a deal where ECB profits on Greek bonds are instead distributed solely to Greece.The deal effectively means that Greece is able to borrow at no cost – because the interest that it pays on its borrowings is given directly to the bond’s owner (the ECB) and is then given straight back to the government.While Noonan says Ireland’s needs are different to those of Greece, it was “examining the Greek package to see if aspect of it offer any possible benefit to Ireland”.In response to written Dáil questions from Labour’s Dominic Hannigan, he added that the examination would be “in the context of our programme exit.”The deal reached for Greece in November also included a lowering of the interest rate on Greece’s European bailout loans, and an extension of the repayment period for the loans.Ireland is currently seeking a similar extension of its repayment schedule, along with Portugal, the other Eurozone country currently in a bailout.Though the deal would involve the reassignment of ECB funds, ECB approval is not needed for the arrangement because the deal simply involves a commitment from individual governments to reassign their part of the ECB’s profits.Read: Noonan: Europe now owes Ireland after ‘taking one for the team’last_img read more

Et le spécimen est loin d’être semblable aux autres, comme le montrent les photos dévoilées, puisque celui-ci est albinos.Habillé d’une fourrure d’une blancheur immaculée, le petit se porte bien et a d’ores et déjà été mis parmi ses douze congénères dans l’enclos qui leur est réservé. Cet heureux et exceptionnel événement intervient “dans l’esprit des ménageries présentes dans le parc du Domaine aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles”, ont ainsi noté les organisateurs.Toutefois, reste encore une étape : baptiser le petit kangourou blanc. Et pour cela, le Domaine de Chantilly a choisi de faire appel aux internautes sur sa page Facebook. Grâce à un formulaire, il propose de voter pour l’un des six noms proposés : Kasper, Wally, Ivoire, Cream, Killy et Ice. Mais si Cream a déjà remporté pas mal de suffrages, les internautes ne se sont pas privés pour en imaginer d’autres.À lire aussiMigaloo la baleine blanche extrêmement rare a de nouveau été filméeC’est ainsi tout naturellement qu’est venue la proposition de le baptiser “Chantilly”. Une proposition qui remporte déjà un franc succès sur la page Facebook.

ISS Perfectly Photobombs Total Solar Eclipse

first_imgVoila! The #Eclipse2017 shadow from @Space_Station, no words needed // Voilà! L’eclisse vista dalla Stazione Spaziale, non servono parole… pic.twitter.com/7kD5AYb5zj— Paolo Nespoli (@astro_paolo) August 21, 2017Starting off the coast of Oregon and leaving US shores in South Carolina, the celestial phenomenon enveloped 14 states in complete darkness for about two minutes, and left many others partially veiled.Data collected on Monday will allow scientists to continue studying the sun’s atmosphere, helping to understand motions in the corona, cyclical changes in temperature, and more.If you missed this week’s spectacle, just sit tight: The next US eclipse is expected in April 2024. In the meantime, check out our roundup of The Best Eclipses in Sci-Fi History, including that opening scene in Stanley Kubrick’s classic 2001: A Space Odyssey.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. “That’s no moon … It’s a space station.”Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi called it: The International Space Station was caught transiting the sun during Monday’s total solar eclipse.In a stunning photo tweeted by the ISS crew, what looks like a pesky speck of dust is actually the silhouette of the orbiting laboratory during one of its three revolutions around the sun. It’s the moon, sunspots AND the station in front of the sun. @NASA photographer captures station transiting sun during #Eclipse2017 pic.twitter.com/hAVRINz0bv— Intl. Space Station (@Space_Station) August 21, 2017Look closely: That dot on the right, near the curve of the moon’s shadow, looks a bit different from the rest. You can even make out the station’s protruding solar arrays.Carrying a crew of six and traveling at about five miles per second, the lab can be seen much more clearly in this composite image, made from seven frames captured by NASA photographer Joel Kowsky.He also snapped this remarkable picture of the moon passing in front of the sun “at the point of the maximum of the partial solar eclipse” in Wyoming. Stay on target I hope y’all had a great view for the #SolarEclipse2017 yesterday! It was cool to see that ginormous shadow trucking across the USA! pic.twitter.com/7UxIDTGSne— Jack Fischer (@Astro2fish) August 22, 2017 Millions of people saw #Eclipse2017 but only six people saw the umbra, or the moon’s shadow, over the United States from space today. pic.twitter.com/hMgMC5MgRh— Intl. Space Station (@Space_Station) August 21, 2017Onboard as part of Expedition 52 are NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer, and Randy Bresnik; Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazanskiy; and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Paolo Nespoli.Equipped with specially filtered cameras, the team had a few chances to photograph the solar eclipse from space; the ISS traveled over the event three times—the final pass offering the most coverage (84 percent).And they didn’t disappoint.

Halo TV series set for 2021 casts Cortana

first_img Free Echo Dot with an Insignia or Toshiba TV (save $50) Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) E3 2018: Halo Infinite announced Share your voice Share your voice Boost Mobile null Best Buy $999 $299 at Amazon Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. Cortana,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Turo The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters. It normally runs $350, but this deal drops it to $261 when you apply promo code 19LABOR10 at checkout. Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. $60 at Best Buy Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

The network made several announcements about the upcoming Halo TV series during its TV Critics’ Association press tour on Friday. Natascha McElhone, known for Californication and Solaris, will take on the role of Dr. Catherine Halsey and AI construct Cortana, according to CNET sister site GameSpot. Also revealed, Bokeem Woodbine will play Soren-066, a “morally complex privateer” who finds himself in conflict with Master Chief, and Shabana Azmi will play Admiral Margaret Parangosky, a character mentioned throughout multiple iterations of the Halo franchise. The rest of the new roles, all Spartan soldiers, are characters created for the TV series, according to GameSpot. Bentley Kalu will play Vannak-134, Natasha Culzac is taking on the role of Riz-028 and Kate Kennedy will play “Spartan supersoldier” Kai-125.And now we know Halo is scheduled to debut on Showtime in the first quarter of 2021, with filming set to start later this year, according to GameSpot. Microsoft and Halo developer 343 Industries announced last summer that Showtime had ordered a 10-episode season based on the popular video game franchise.This is the latest major news about the series since it was revealed earlier this year that Orange is the New Black and American Gods alum Pablo Schreiber would fill the role of Master Chief, the mysterious masked figure at the center of the video game. Showtime President David Nevins previously called the Halo series his network’s “most ambitious series ever,” and noted that it will be set on multiple planet. (Editors’ note: Showtime is owned by CBS, which also owns CNET.)Rupert Wyatt, who directed Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is executive producer on the show and will direct some episodes. Kyle Killen (Lone Star, Awake) is on board as an executive producer, writer and showrunner. Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. $155 at Google Express Chris Monroe/CNET An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. Turo: Save $30 on any car rental CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet.

In contrast to alternative approaches, by using advanced laser surface scanning technology the need for implanted or even surface located reference markers is avoided. This approach delivers workflow efficiencies for the clinic and greater comfort for the patient.The Sentinel System solution for intra fraction motion monitoring can be used in combination with the HexaPOD evo RT system.
