Sudans troubled Darfur region to host national school competition with UN help

Under the theme ‘Peace-building and Reconciliation,’ and organized by the Ministry of Education with significant support from the joint African Union-UN mission in Darfur (UNAMID) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the two-weeks of intellectual and athletic competitions open on 31 December in El Fasher, capital of North Darfur, the first time that state hosts the 21-year-old event.“UNAMID supports this competition in hope that it will provide an infrequent opportunity for young people from all over Sudan to meet across ethnic groups, make friends, dialogue and break stereotypes,” the Mission said in a news release today that bring together students from all 25 states in Africa’s largest country. “The Mission’s objective is to encourage youth to commit to peace in Sudan.”UNAMID has loaned heavy machinery and engineers for the construction of three roads and a camp with tents, beds, mattresses and blankets for competitors. It will also provide 55 vehicles with drivers to transport participants to and from the various events, while a fire truck and five ambulances staffed by UNAMID medical personnel will be on 24-hour standby for the duration. The Mission has also been asked to supply water tankers to deliver potable water, and two electrical generators with technical staff will be on hand to power one of the two stadiums and the camp. The opening and closing ceremonies will be covered by UNAMID Communication and Public Information Division and broadcast live, and the Mission has agreed to support media coverage, providing the local radio station with equipment and necessary training. As part of its community outreach programme UNAMID is donating sports equipment.UNAMID was set up almost two years ago help stabilize the three Darfur states (North West and South), an area torn apart by nearly seven years of war between the Government, its militia allies and rebels seeking greater autonomy, during which at least 300,000 people are estimated to have died and 2.7 million more have been driven from their homes. The Mission has still only reached about 70 per cent of its authorized troop strength – some 14,650 military personnel out of the total 19,555, and 4,450 police – and still lacks key military elements, including two medium transport units, a level II hospital, an aerial reconnaissance unit, and 18 medium utility helicopters. Next year’s competition is scheduled to be held in Juba, South Sudan, a region where another UN peacekeeping mission, the more than 10,000-strong UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS), is helping to restore stability after a peace accord in 2005 ended 20 years of war between Sudanese People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) separatists and the national Government in the north. 24 December 2009The United Nations is providing logistics, security and equipment to the Sudanese Government for its annual National School Competition, bringing together over 7,000 secondary school students from all 25 states in the country’s war-torn Darfur region. read more

Hospital waste found in trash on beach in Peloponnese

first_imgPiles of rubbish and medical waste that had been dumped illegally near Valimitika beach in Aigio, in the Peloponnese, have been unearthed due to coastal erosion at the mouth of the Selinounda River following strong northerly winds, local reports said.Aigialia Mayor Stathis Theodorakopoulos speculated on Monday that the trash had probably been buried at the site many years ago by unknown individuals. He pledged that authorities would clean up the area.However, locals have reportedly already collected part of the rubbish and incinerated it to avoid potential health hazards.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img

La sonde russe PhobosGrunt partira ce soir explorer la plus grande lune

first_imgLa sonde russe Phobos-Grunt partira ce soir explorer la plus grande lune de MarsCe soir, la Russie lancera la mission Phobos-Grunt, destinée à explorer Phobos, la plus grande des lunes de Mars.Prévue pour décoller ce mardi à 20H16 UTC (soit 21H16 heure française), la sonde russe destinée à explorer Phobos, la plus grande des lunes de Mars, sera lancée par une fusée Zenit-2SB. Quittant la Terre à partir du cosmodrome de Baïkonour au Kazakhstan, cette sonde qui constitue la mission Phobos-Grunt aura pour objectif d’étudier l’origine de la planète et l’atmosphère martienne, de collecter des échantillons du satellite et de les ramener sur Terre. Pour mener à bien sa mission, l’engin Phobos-Grunt va emporter avec lui un atterrisseur, doté d’une charge utile scientifique qui va permettre la collecte d’échantillons et d’un module pour son retour sur Terre, rapporte Sciences et Avenir. Au passage, Phobos-Grunt va également déposer un satellite chinois, Yinghuo-1, dans l’orbite de Mars.Pour la Russie ce lancement est fondamental pour relancer le secteur spatial. En effet, la dernière mission interplanétaire remplie avec succès par Moscou remonte à 1986, avec le lancement des sondes soviétiques Vega pour explorer Vénus et la comète de Halley. Et si l’agence spatiale russe (Roskosmos) a toujours porté un intérêt particulier à Phobos, les missions de 1988 et 1989 (sondes Phobos 1 et 2) s’étaient soldées par des échecs.”Une performance d’importance mondiale” À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAPrévu à l’origine en 2009, le lancement de Phobos-Grunt avait été reporté à 2011. Tous les deux ans, la distance entre Mars et la Terre étant réduite, cela facilite les lancements. Selon le Centre national d’études spatiales français (CNES), associé à Roskosmos dans cette mission, le véhicule doit atteindre sa destination en 2013 et les échantillons sont attendus pour 2014 sur Terre.”Cela fait 25 ans qu’il n’y a pas eu de vols interplanétaires. Si Phobos-Grunt atteint Phobos et lance le satellite chinois, ce sera déjà un succès. Et s’il arrive à collecter des échantillons de sol et à les ramener sur Terre, cela dépassera toutes les attentes”, a déclaré à l’AFP l’expert russe, Igor Lissov avant d’ajouter : “le problème de l’astronautique russe est que les gens ont oublié le goût de la victoire. […] La réussite de cette expédition va rétablir la confiance en ses forces”. “Si Phobos-Grunt remplit entièrement ses objectifs, ce sera une performance d’importance mondiale”, a-t-il enfin relevé.Le 8 novembre 2011 à 15:19 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Razers Crazy Tripledisplay Laptop Was Stolen From Their CES Booth

first_imgStay on target Razer’s chunky, mind-blowing Project Valerie laptop and its three 4K displays were one of the most impressive pieces of hardware at CES this year. So impressive someone decided to steal it.At around 2 am Eastern time, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan announced on his Facebook page that he’d just receive word of the crime. The company’s groundbreaking laptop wasn’t the only thing that the thief (or thieves) took, either.The perpetrator(s) also made off with another Razer prototype: Project Ariana. It’s a projector, but not like any you’ve ever used before. Project Ariana is a 4K unit with a pair of depth-sensing cameras and a fisheye lens, and it’s very similar to what Microsoft showed off with their IllumiRoom concept device for the Xbox.Here’s what it looks like in action, courtesy of our friends over at PC Magazine:Pretty sweet, right? Unlike Project Valerie — which you can only drool over for now — Razer was already planning on letting you buy Project Ariana. Though they don’t have a definite date, the projector was due to go on sale sometime later this year.Tan is understandably ticked about the two prototypes being stolen. “At Razer, we play hard, and we play fair,” he posted, adding “our teams worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units.”Authorities are already investigating the crime, and Tan isn’t ready to rule out industrial espionage. That, he says, “is cheating, and cheating doesn’t sit well with us.”He’s probably also not thrilled about history repeating itself. Back in 2011, Razer had a pair of prototypes stolen from their Bay Area offices during a break-in.

Edward Snowdens Back With an App

first_img Geek Pick: Ring Stick Up Cam Battery Is Standalone SecurityAndroid Ransomware Pretends to Be Reddit Porn Privacy advocate (and some would say national hero) Edward Snowden is back in the limelight thanks to a new security app.Snowden, who blew the whistle on the NSA’s illegal surveillance practices, has partnered with the Freedom of the Press Foundation to develop a new app dubbed “Haven.” It’s meant to turn a spare Android phone into a powerful personal security system.The app transforms your phone into an intelligent listening device. You place this anywhere you want to secure, and Haven will listen in. If it detects someone, it will turn on the camera to record the intruder. It also uses the phone’s other features and hardware — like the accelerometer — to detect movement or whether the phone’s been messed with. All of this gets sent to your primary phone via encrypted messaging app Signal, so you can be appraised of the situation as it develops.“Imagine if you had a guard dog you could take with you to any hotel room and leave it in your room when you’re not there,” Snowden told WIRED. “The real idea is to establish that the physical spaces around you can be trusted.”Snowden’s purpose for this app is to protect people against more physical threats. Much of your strongest cybersecurity can be circumvented by anyone with physical access to your devices. Using a specialized and motion-sensitive system to monitor a precious computer or location from physical intrusion is… well, a step probably too far for most, but definitely smart.This system is also far cheaper than a total home security system — especially one with these sorts of features. You can imagine, though, that the intended users are well people like me. I travel a fair bit, and I report on cybersecurity. That makes me a rather frequent target. I’m not terribly concerned most of the time, but if I got advance warning of something, as I have in the past, I don’t see why this wouldn’t be a fantastic option.Outside of that specific use, though, Haven could help teens keep tabs on intrusive parents — which could be huge if the parents are abusive, say. It could also help as a defense against stalkers, for instance. That could be huge in itself, though. Such a simple, cheap, secure, and potentially effective means of personal security is a great resource.If you’re interested, check it out. No paranoia necessary.

Buffon benched for next two games at PSG

first_imgGianluigi Buffon will be benched for Paris Saint-Germain’s next two Ligue 1 games, confirms head coach Thomas TuchelThe 40-year-old goalkeeper joined the French giants this summer on a one-year deal from Juventus.Buffon has since started in both of PSG’s opening games of the new league season, as well as the 4-0 thrashing of AS Monaco in the Trophee des Champions.But, despite having only conceded one goal, Buffon will be dropped in favour of Alphonse Areola for Saturday’s home game against Angers and for the trip to Nimes on September 1.“Alphonse will play against Angers and Nimes. After that, we will see,” said Tuchel, as quoted by AS.“We think it’s important for Alphonse to play. His last match was in May. He must play.“Gigi had three exceptional, magnificent matches. I do not like leaving him out.“I do not like making long-term decisions. It is important during this preparatory stage that Alphonse adapts to the team.“I like complicated decisions. I must make a choice. I like that.”Buona la prima!PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R.

They are four key players, each with different qualities.“I will not say if Edinson will start, or what Kylian’s position will be. Edinson has been working hard for two weeks and he is in top shape. We will decide together.“Mbappe has to get used to playing several positions; there are several possibilities. He will play as an attacker.”last_img read more

Fernandez shares more details about tardy Dembele

first_imgBarcelona’s former technical secretary, Robert Fernandez, spoke in detail about Ousmane Dembele being tardy and his performance.The talk of the day for FC Barcelona was Ousmane Dembele without question, even Robert Fernandez had something to say about the French ‘Bad Boy’ who is tardy and has put the club upside down with his antics.But right after he makes a mistake that is related to poor discipline, he soon comes back and makes amends with a very important goal or assists that keeps helping Barcelona get points.With his goal against Tottenham this Tuesday, Ousmane Dembele has now produced 9 goals in his last 9 matches for Barcelona between scoring and assisting his teammates.This level of performance is already putting him on a similar level to Neymar at the club, the only problem is his distracted mind. On a psychological level, the real issue here is that Ousmane Dembele seems to suffer from ADHD and one of his only ways to control it is to play video games.The main obstacle that gets in the way of him developing the incredible talent he has, is that the French lad doesn’t seem to have his sleeping hours under control because he looks like he simply can’t go to sleep.4 GOLES ⚽⚽⚽⚽5 ASISTENCIAS 🅰🅰🅰🅰🅰¡@Dembouz ha participado en 9 goles en sus últimos 9 partidos con el @FCBarcelona_es en todas las competiciones! 🔥#UCL— LaLiga (@LaLiga) December 11, 2018The club knew about this problem when they first signed him from Borussia Dortmund, but they knew that his level of talent was worth all the trouble and the results are showing that FC Barcelona was right about him.The only problem right now does seem to be that many of the players could not appreciate the special treatment that Dembele is getting, but most of them will end up falling in line if he is the one who gets them all the trophies by the end of the season.Because the type of goal that he scored against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday, is within reach of very few football players in the world.Just by looking at the effort of recovering the ball the way Dembele did, and then going after two defenders to deliver that insane finish as he dribbled on both of them is both insane and beautiful to watch.This goal is already being labeled as one of the best from this last group stage fixture in the Champions League, Ousmane Dembele really is everything that people were getting him hyped for and maybe even more.Kylian Mbappé’s assessment of deeming Ousmane Dembele the most talented young player in the world might just be true.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.¡ESPECTACULAR! 🤩Tremenda escapada de Dembelé, deja tendido a dos rivales del Tottenham y la firma 🖊️#ChampionsxESPN 🏆— Fuera de Juego (@ESPN_FDJ) December 11, 2018Former Barcelona secretary Robert Fernandez, was quoted by Marca when he explained the problems Dembele has.“The press is having a field day with this issue of him falling asleep. But this is not such a bad thing from a certain perspective,” said Fernandez during the interview.“I have seen cases of players who fell asleep in the past. What I wonder is how is it that this news is coming out so quickly? I’m not saying there is a campaign against the club, but I do think that we need to protect this player.”“Although it may be true that he has made mistakes in a number of situations, it is also true that we need to defend him and try to carry him in a way that can benefit him better. This lad is one of the club’s greatest assets.”“We have to defend him in a way that we have also defended other players in the past, both at FC Barcelona and other clubs in the world. There have always been players who fall asleep.”“We are talking about a very young player here, one who makes mistakes. All we need to do is keep him in a short leash with these kinds of details.”“We already knew about his problem with falling asleep, but we decided to bring him due to his incredible quality as a player.”“This is a problem that can be fixed. If he was 27 when we signed him, we obviously wouldn’t have brought him. But he is only 21 and I think Barcelona has what it takes to help him improve,” he concluded.¡@Dembouz pone el TURBO! 😎🔥🏎— LaLiga (@LaLiga) December 12, 2018How long do you think Barcelona will take to help Ousmane Dembele fix his problems with sleep?

A few bugs in medical marijuana garden plot

first_imgThree weeks after state law began allowing gardens with up to 45 marijuana plants for medical use, Clark County leaders are still struggling with sticky issues associated with the new law.The Clark County commissioners scheduled a public hearing for 10 a.m. Tuesday. They were expected to either extend their 60-day ban on collective gardens for the county’s unincorporated areas or end the ban, officials said. Clark County cities such as Vancouver, Camas, Washougal and La Center already have six-month bans in place. Ridgefield, Woodland and Yacolt do not.Change in state lawCities rushed to declare temporary bans last month after the state Legislature approved collective gardens. Officials said they needed time to study where the gardens should be placed, how the crop would be distributed and other details, officials said. The state law, which took effect July 22, is at odds with federal law that bans all marijuana use.State law allows for up to 10 people to grow up to 45 plants in collective gardens. State law also gives cities and counties the authority to establish zoning regulations for the gardens but not to ban them outright.“It’s not an issue whether medical marijuana is legal or not,” Washougal Mayor Sean Guard said, pointing to Senate Bill 5073. “The question has to do with the collective farms and what areas they should be in.”Gov. Chris Gregoire axed portions of proposed legislation allowing dispensaries for medical marijuana. Her decision to allow collective gardens caught many local lawmakers off guard, they said.last_img read more

Wrangell contract talks resume strikers return to work

first_imgInternational Brotherhood of Electrical Workers representative Julius Matthew walked the picket line with Wrangell municipal workers Lorne Cook, Dwight Yancey and Andrew Scambler before the strike ended. (Photo courtesy IBEW)The strike is over, at least for now.Listen nowThe International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and Wrangell Borough officials are returning to the bargaining table.IBEW leader Dave Reaves said the union emailed Wrangell’s borough manager, finance director and assembly members Wednesday morning, asking for talks to resume.“We’d be willing to put the unfair labor practice … in abeyance, which basically means it would be paused or put on hold if they were willing to come back and talk,” Reaves said Wednesday afternoon.Interim Borough Manager Carol Rushmore said the two sides would begin talks at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.About 25 members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers voted last week to go on strike. That came after the union and municipality rejected each other’s final contract offers.The main difference between the two sides is a wage increase. The borough offered 75 cents an hour, while the union proposed $2.50 an hour.Meanwhile, the municipality hired temporary workers to fill in for striking employees.Rushmore told Assembly members Tuesday night that one was working in the water department. She said another was at the solid waste transfer station. It’s open reduced hours, though there’s increased demand, because the strike stopped curbside garbage pickup.Rushmore said there are other problems at the transfer station.Only one of the usual two large containers used to ship trash south was delivered by barge this time around. That could complicate operations.“If that container fills up pretty fast, we may actually have to close the dump again because we have nowhere to put the trash,” Rushmore said.In addition to the temps, approximately 35 managers and other non-union staff continued to work.Union members left the picket line to help with several emergencies during the strike.Reaves said electrical crews took care of two power outages.“The first day, there was an eagle that got into some lines. The linemen responded and fixed that. That outage included the hospital. And then the other day there was another outage, a transformer had internal problems and a crew responded and fixed that too,” Reaves said.The Wrangell Assembly held a closed-door executive session on the strike with its attorney during its Tuesday meeting. But members made no announcement after it was over.last_img read more

Researchers develop new braincomputer interface that lets paralyzed patients use tablets

first_imgResearchers have developed a new iBCI (intracortical brain-computer interface) that allows people with paralysis to control an unmodified, commercially available tablet. This research was based on the fact that most general-purpose computers have been difficult to use for people with some form of paralysis. In their study, three research participants with tetraplegia who had multielectrode arrays implanted in motor cortex as part of the BrainGate2 clinical trial were invited. Using the iBCI, their neural activity was decoded in real time with a point-and-click wireless Bluetooth mouse. This allowed participants to use common and recreational applications (web browsing, email, chatting, playing music on a piano application, sending text messages, etc.). iBCI also allowed two participants to “chat” with each other in real time. The architecture of the setup Participants used seven common applications on the tablet: an email client, a chat program, a web browser, a weather program, a news aggregator, a video sharing program, and a streaming music program. The system consisted of a NeuroPort recording system to record neural signals from the participant’s motor cortex. These signals were routed into a real-time computer running the xPC/Simulink Real-Time operating system for processing and decoding. The output of the decoding algorithm was passed to a Bluetooth interface configured to work as a wireless computer mouse using the Bluetooth Human Interface Device (HID) Profile. This virtual Bluetooth mouse was paired with a commercial Android tablet device with no modifications to the operating system. Participants performed real-time “point-and-click” control over a cursor that appeared on the tablet computer once paired through the Bluetooth interface. The cursor movements and clicks by participants were decoded from neural activity using Kalman filters. 2D cursor velocities were estimated using a Recalibrated Feedback Intention Trained Kalman Filter (ReFIT-KF) and a cumulative closed-loop decoder. Click intentions were classified using a hidden Markov model and a linear discriminant analysis classifier. Future work The researchers want to expand the control stock with additional decoded signals, leveraging more optimized keyboard layouts, exploring accessibility features, and controlling other devices and operating systems. They also want to extend the output of the iBCI to support additional dimensions that may be used to command advanced cursor features. For detailed analysis, go through the research paper.

6 things you need to know about Envision Festival 2015

first_imgIn February, thousands of costume-clad travelers will descend on the lush jungle of the Southern Pacific Coast to attend Envision, Costa Rica’s epic eco-conscious festival.In its fifth installment, the music, art, and sacred-movement festival continues to grow in numbers and production. This year, festival producers are expecting to sell 1,000 more tickets than in 2014. They have secured the festival grounds at Rancho La Merced year-round to plant more shade for campers and to ensure a smoother festival terrain.Envision Festival kicks off February 26 with events day and night through March 1. Here’s what you should know before you go.1. The music has been awesome.In the past, the great lineup, thoughtful scheduling, excellent sound, mesmerizing lights, dancing characters, and jungle setting have transformed the already excellent musical experience in to a magical wonderland. This year should not disappoint. Recently released, the initial lineup includes Groundation, Phaeleh, The Polish Ambassador, Wildlight, Emancipator, Ott, Bluetech, Random Rab, Govinda, Ill-Esha, Dimond-Saints, Stickybirds, AMB, Ayla Nereo, and GsaQi, with Costa Rican reggae headliner Un Rojo and Guatemala’s Los Miseria Cumbia Band.2. It is not just a music festival.While musicians are on stage almost 24/7, there are also a myriad of other things to do, such as explore art installations, attend permaculture and education workshops, participate in a yoga or movement class, eat yummy food, shop unique merchandise booths, explore waterfalls, and play at the beach. It’s going to be hard to get a full 8 hours of sleep in – I recommend naps. Lots and lots of strategically timed naps. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico Times 6. There is more than one way to experience Envision.Buy a ticket or apply to volunteer, work in media, be an official artist, perform, present, intern, or sell your merchandise. Tickets can be bought here and applications can be found here.At press time, $198 Super Early Bird tickets are sold out, but $215 Early Bird tickets are still available. The cost will go up three more times until it reaches $300. There are also VIP packages, tours before and after the event, various add-ons, and discounted prices for Central American residents with valid IDs.The location is Rancho La Merced, Uvita, Costa Rica. The 2015 entrance has been moved to make entering easier and to avoid the long, slow, bumpy, albeit amusing cattle-truck ride from 2014. Facebook Comments 3. You need to read the survival guide.It sounds like a fantasy land, but not everything is rainbows and glitter unicorns. Life in the jungle has the potential to be absolutely miserable without proper preparation. The survival guide can be found in English and Spanish under Event Info on Envision’s new 2015 website.4. They really do care about the environment.Envision has partnered with many companies to benefit the environment through efforts such as rainforest reforestation and sea turtle adoption. They have also implemented initiatives at the event itself such as banning the use of single-use tableware in favor of bamboo and banana leaf alternatives that you make yourself; a festival-wide composting system; trash sorting; permitting only biodegradable products in the showers; green building; and multiple spaces dedicated entirely to environmental education. New this year, Envision 2015 will see the end of offputting port-a-potties and the introduction of the more agreeable alternative – compost toilets!5. They really do care about the community in Costa Rica.Over the years the folks at Envision have donated computers to Dominical schools, built new sidewalks in Uvita, repaired the town of Uvita’s water system, and donated money to build a new police station. Some of the official Envision partnerships include companies that bring school supplies to area youth, support local lifeguards, create projects that support regenerative community living, and educate and empower local youth. Acrobats perform using a hoop hanging from the stage.

all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThe Union environment ministry on Friday modified animal cruelty rules making it mandatory to ensure cattle are not bought or sold for slaughtering from an open market The list of animals covered by the ban includes cows bulls buffaloes heifers calves and camels There has been an uproar over the issue with parties calling this move as motivated by saffronisation politics Export businesses have expressed concern over the impact therule would have on their livelihoods A worker pushes a cart of cow food at the Shree Gopala Goshala cow shelter Getty images Here’s a list of who said what on the cattle slaughter ban: Opposition: Congress leader P Chidambaram on Monday sought to know why the central government was "poking its nose" into cow slaughter regulations which wasthe responsibility of state governments "States make laws regulating cow slaughter —what is permissible and what is not Why does Centre poke its nose" asked Chidambaram in a series of tweets on his official account "People are entitled to choose their food as long as that food is obtained lawfully No government can interfere" he posted The CPM on Saturday termed the ban of sale of cattle for slaughter an attempt to provide a "legal cover" to its communal agenda and demanded the notification’s withdrawal "The notification of the Ministry of Environment Forests and Climate Change that bans sale of cattle for slaughter is an atrocious attempt by the Modi government to give legal cover for its wholly communal and divisive agenda to impose a diet code on the country" the Communist Party of India-Marxist politburo said in a statement It said that the decision will destroy the livelihood of crores of farmers involved in animal husbandry eliminate traditional cattle fairs and put an unfair burden on farmers to care for useless cattle "This further burdens the farmers who are increasingly resorting to distress suicides due to escalating input costs It will also impact the leather industry and the meat export industry affecting the livelihood of lakhs of people The notification is also an encroachment on the rights of the states under whose jurisdiction such issues fall The CPM strongly condemns and opposes the notification and demands its withdrawal" the statement said State governments: West Bengal:Chief minister Mamata Banerjee took a strong stand against cattle smuggling directing the police to catch the offenders even if they were from her Trinamool Congress party However she also asked police and the administration not to abide by the central government’s ban on cattle trade for slaughter "so long as the state doesn’t pass any law" on the issue Banerjee’s directive came during an administrative meeting at Barrackpore in North 24 Parganas district "Cow smuggling has to be stopped at any cost The police should take stern action to put an end to it" Banerjee told the police officers present at the meeting "There should not be any smuggling of cattle whatever the local politicians may say even if they are from my party" she said On Monday Banerjee had lashed out against the Centre’s order terming it as "unconstitutional" and said her government would challenge it legally "This is a destructive attitude to federal structure unnecessary bulldozing encroaching and interference to federal structure" she had said Meghalaya:The National People’s Party (NPP) of Meghalaya on Tuesday differed with its ally BJP on the new rules governing cattle trade and slaughter and demanded that they be withdrawn Conrad K Sangma the lone NPP member in the Lok Sabha urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and direct the environment ministry to denotify the new rules in the larger interest of the people Sangma said in an open letter to Modi that the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules 2017 impose a number of restrictions on cattle trade that would have serious impact on the socio-cultural and economic milieu of millions especially those in the agricultural and related industrial sectors "Imposing unreasonable restriction on the fundamental right to carry on any trade or occupation under Article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution will not stand the test of constitutionality" the NPP chief said Sangma said the new rules violate the basic right of a person to freedom of choice regarding his food Meanwhile former Union minister and Congress MP Vincent H Pala has urged Modi to seeks views from state governments on the new rules In a letter to Modi Pala saidthat tribal states like Meghalaya should be exempt from the application of these rules He urged the Modi government to seek the views of all states and union territories to review the rules and allow their implementation with necessary modifications He said only the Parliament was empowered to expand the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act 1960 Pala said Section 38 of PCA Act 1960 does not authorise the central government to create new provisions new definitions and new organisations like Animal Market Monitoring Committee and Animal Market Committee He said Section 11(3)(e) exempts the slaughter of an animal for food from being deemed as "cruelty" to animal "Animals for slaughter are secured only through livestock markets If animal trade for slaughter is banned it will be tantamount to repeal of Section 11(3)(e) of the principal Act and also has attenuating effect on the Slaughter House Rules of 2001 "This therefore calls for serious application of mind and review" he said BJP leaders in Meghalaya on Tuesday threatened to quit the party if the Modi government refused to repeal the new cattle trade rules "Most party leaders in Meghalaya are not happy with the new rules which are directly affecting the socio-economic status of the people" BJP vice-president John Antonius Lyngdoh told IANS Lyngdoh said the party members went into a huddle on Monday and discussed the issue in depth "We cannot accept the new rules on cattle trade and slaughter We cannot go against our food behaviour besides putting the economic interest of those people dealing in cattle trade and slaughter in jeopardy" the former food and civil supplies minister said He added "It will be difficult for the candidates to campaign as the electorate won’t back a party which goes against the interests of the people" BJP president Shibun Lyngdoh dismissed Lyngdoh’s threat "I would not like to comment on the new rules as it is a legal matter but those who want to leave the party are free to do so" On Monday BJP leader Bernard Marak said his party won’t ban beef and instead legalise slaughter houses if it comes to power in the state "In Meghalaya most BJP leaders eat beef The question of banning beef does not arise in a state like Meghalaya" he said Tripura: Tripura’s Left Front government will not implement the new cattle trade and slaughter rules as it is against the interests of the people a state minister said on Tuesday "The new cattle trade and slaughter rules framed by the central government are against the interest of the people We will not carry out the new rules" Tripura’s agriculture and animal resource development minister Aghore Debbarma told IANS "The central government is yet to send us the new cattle trade and slaughter rules They did not consult us on this issue" "If people are not able to sell their cattle how will they take care of livestock when it turns unnecessary for them How will it be determined that the cattle being purchased from the market is for slaughtering" askedDebbarma also the member of CPM central committee Kerala:Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Wednesday said that the Centre had no right to regulate cattle sale in states Issuing a line-by-line rebuttal of the Centre’s notification on the new cattle slaughter laws Vijayan said that the BJP-led central government was ignoring the federal structure and was making an attempt "to encroach upon the powers of the states" Vijayan was addressing the press after the state’s Cabinet meeting He said that the state Cabinet is of the view that regulating sale of cattle is outside the Centre’s purview adding that they will certainly question the legality of the new legislation in court Vijayan also quashed the government’s argument about animal rights adding that slaughter of cattle for consumption is permitted under the law He said that the all that the existing laws state is that there shouldn’t be aimless pain inflicted to the cattle while slaughtering He said that the people in his state do not need a lesson on food habits from BJP and RSS He had earlier written to Modi asking the central government to repeal the new restrictions against cattle slaughter terming it an intrusion into the rights of states "I request you to kindly intervene in this matter and repeal the newly-imposed restrictions so that the lives and livelihoods of millions of our fellow countrymen can be protected while safeguarding the fundamental principles of our Constitution" Vijayan said in his two-page letter "The absence of efforts to take the states into confidence on such a drastic move with far reaching consequences is detrimental to our democracy I am afraid it amounts to an intrusion into the rights of the states in our federal structure The introduction of such restrictions in a hasty manner would certainly prove to be a challenge in upholding our plurality the essence of our nation It would also be against the principles of secularism and federalism enshrined in our constitution" added Vijayan State agriculture minister VS Sunilkumar said this was nothing but implementing the RSS agenda and that it would not work in Kerala "Under the guise of ‘cruelty to animals’ clause the Centre is trying to push through the RSS agenda This is a foolish decision and we will deal with this legally" the minister said State minister for local self government KT Jaleel said every state has its own eating habits "This new law is not going to be accepted as people will generally accept only if they feel they are doing a wrong" State PWD minister G Sudhakaran said this was the latest in the series of fascist acts of the Modi government "These things can’t be put out simply through an order Has Parliament taken the states into confidence or has there been any discussion with them These things won’t work out in Kerala" said Sudhakaran State Congress president MM Hassan said the order was unconstitutional and infringement of the basic rights of people "The BJP is trying to bring to Kerala the strategy of ‘cow politics’ as they did in Uttar Pradesh Here cow slaughter is not banned We will oppose this tooth and nail" said Hassan State BJP president Kummanem Rajasekheran however said that a section of the media here was presenting the new order in a twisted manner as there was no ban at all "It’s most unfortunate that MM Hassan went to the extent of saying that this order was issued on the eve of Ramadan" Rajasekheran said Tamil Nadu:DMK working president MK Stalin led a protest on Wednesdayagainst the ban The party also hit out at the K Palaniswami government in the state for "keeping mum" on the issue when the neighbouring states of Kerala and Karnataka have opposed it The DMK said the fundamental right to choice of food given by the Constitution has been "snatched away" by the Centre Quoting media reports it said trade was hit at the Anthiyur cattle shandy in Tamil Nadu due to the curbs Stalin will lead a protest at the district collectorate against "the Centre and sate governments" on the issue it added Chief minister Palaniswami had on Saturday said he will comment on the Centre’s ban on cattle sale after going through the related notification The courts: The Rajasthan High Court on Wednesday told the Centre to increase punishment for cow slaughter to life imprisonment and said that the Centre should make it the national animal The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court stayed for four weeks the operation of new central government rules on cattle trade The court issued notice to the central government asking it to file a reply within four weeks Exporters and businesses: Senior members of Council of Leather Exports CLA Tanners Association and Indian Leather Products Association claimed that the decision was "legally null and void" as live cattle belonged to powers bracketed under the state list according to the Indian Constitution "The Centre should have discussed the matter with the state governments first How can they come up with a unilateral notification on a state subject We demand the Centre immediately withdraw or amend the notification" CLA Tanners Association general secretary Imran Ahmed Khan said "If the Centre does not we will approach the court and also hit the streets as ithas handed a death certificate to the industry which will be hugely hit" said Council of Leather Exports’ Eegional Chairman (east) Ramesh Kumar Juneja Khan alleged that the Centre’s decision was a fresh effort to finish off small industries and instead give a boost to multi-nationals and big companies "The small sector will be hit the hardest Onlybig companies and multinationals will gain" he said Industry leaders said the ban will rob 35 million people involved with the industry of their livelihood in the country while exports would be halved from $7 billion to $35 billion Complaining that the industry was yet to overcome the crisis it faced after demonetisation exporters said the latest decision would "finish our industry entirely" "After demonetisation our business declined by 15-20 percent We did badly during Christmas And the latest decision will finish our industry entirely" said finished leather exporter Mohammed Zia Nafis Charging the Centre with "intentionally targeting" the leather industry Khan said hides of animals like cows and buffaloes are used in large scale by the sector "And these animals have been kept under the ambit of the notification The Centre now claims that the decision was meant to stop cruelty to animals Then why have they not mentioned animals like goats in the notification" Nafis alleged that the Centre’s decision would only help Bangladesh which has already eroded India’s grip over the sector "After demonetisation Bangladesh gained considerably at our cost The latest decision would further strengthen Bangladesh’s position" he said Turning to West Bengal industry leaders said 200 tanneries in the state would be shut down because of the ban "We will chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s intervention" said Juneja According to an Economic Times report international brands such as Zara Marks and Spencer Hugo Boss and Armani
