Aurangabad vegetable seller ends life after receiving electricity bill for ₹8.65 lakh

Posted on by

first_imgA vegetable seller in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad district allegedly committed suicide after the Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB) sent him an electricity bill exceeding ₹8 lakh.Jagannath Nehaji Shelke, a resident of Bharatnagar area, took his own life by hanging himself after receiving his bill for the month of April amounting to ₹8,65,020. Police sources said the incident occurred between 4:30 and 5 a.m. on Thursday.Shelke had to pay the bill by May 17. His bill amount, if paid after May 17, read as ₹8,75,830.“The deceased was apparently under severe stress after getting a bill with such figures. He pinned a note to his body saying he was extremely distressed with the humungous electricity bill and hence was forced to take his own life. We are in the process of lodging a complaint,” said an officer from the Garkheda police station, adding that further investigations were on.Mr. Shelke’s kin have demanded that a case be lodged against the Electricity Board for causing his death and have refused to take possession of his body.They further alleged that Shelke had apparently tried to bring this matter to the notice of MSEB authorities, but was ignored by them and asked to pay up by the line man.The MSEB office in Aurangabad said that a clerk had wrongly computed the bill as the vegetable seller had recently installed a new meter. The clerk in question, Sunil Koli, has been suspended for negligence, said sources.last_img read more

No talks with government as yet on India-Pak World Cup tie, says BCCI official

Posted on by

first_imgThe debate over whether India should play Pakistan in their World Cup group-stage encounter in Manchester on June 16 has kicked off again following the Indian Air Force action against terror targets in Balakot, Pakistan.Officials of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are yet to meet the government over the issue and take a call on the matter but one of them said after the Balakot operation that if the government wanted the Indian team to stop playing Pakistan in multi-nation events, the board would follow the directive.There are suggestions that foreign players would be asked to choose between the IPL and the PSL now.A BCCI official confirmed that a member of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) did, in fact, propose this during a meeting last week but it was not backed by others who felt that foreign players should not get involved in India-Pakistan hostility.”The BCCI had resolved at the Special General Meeting that the members participation agreement shall not be executed without the authorization of the general body of the BCCI and the BCCI reserves all its rights regarding the MPA (members participation agreement)and regarding its participation in any other multi-nation tournament or games not covered by the MPA. That answers your question,” BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry had said.Also Read | India vs Australia 2nd T20I: Chinnaswamy pitch expected to be batting-friendlyAlso Read | India strikes back: I salute Indian Air Force.

Video: Maryland Beat Wisconsin On Melo Trimble’s 3-Pointer With 1.2 Seconds Remaining

Posted on by

first_imgMelo Trimble hits game-winning three-pointer as time expires.Melo TrimbleWe just had a Big Ten thriller in Madison. No. 3 Maryland defeated Wisconsin 63-60 on a long three-pointer by point guard Melo Trimble with 1.2 seconds remaining.Trimble’s triple came after Wisconsin’s Bronson Koenig buried a three of a his own to knot the score at 60. Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon elected not to signal for a timeout, instead trusting his All-American point guard to win the game.Good decision.  That shot is the definition of long range. Note ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich saying “Too late” in the background. Dakich thought Trimble took too long before trying to attack.Looks like he knew what he was doing.last_img

Paul Finebaum Believes 1 Major Coach Is Seriously On The Hot Seat

Posted on by

first_img The Tigers had a disappointing 2018 season, one that nearly resulted in the ousting of Malzahn, according to reports. If the same happens in 2019, he’ll likely be done, says Finebaum.Finebaum said on ESPN’s Get Up! this week that he thinks Malzahn will “likely be gone” without a “significant season.”Auburn does have talent, though.“I happen to think top to bottom as a football team, particularly on the defensive side of the ball — and also offensively with some of the weapons they have got coming back, which is virtually everybody, this may be the best top-to-bottom team Gus Malzahn has had,” ESPN’s Tom Luginbill said, per AL.com.Finebaum isn’t quite as high on the Tigers, however.“(Luginbill) is looking at it analytically,” Finebaum added. “He’s as good as anyone there is, but the problem is psychological. (Auburn) is a slight favorite against Oregon, but you have a brand-new quarterback. Oregon has an experienced quarterback. If Oregon gets on the roll and beats them, the pressure becomes intense.“Gus Malzahn was nearly fired last season with 35 million in buyout money hanging in the balance. For as talented as they may be, if they don’t gel well, he’s not going to have an answer for the schedule.”Auburn will get a chance to make a statement right away.The Tigers begin the year on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. E.T. against Oregon.

Rif Protests Amid Tension Between Protestors and Police Brief Moments of

Posted on by

Rabat – While Al Hoceima has seen increased tensions and clashes between protesters and security forces in the past week, videos posted on Youtube show that their relationship has not always been antagonistic.In the video, which was widely shared on social media, a riot policeman is seen talking in Darija (Moroccan Arabic) to a group of young protesters, trying to convince them to leave the place where they came to demonstrate.The protesters try to win the policeman’ sympathy, saying they had come to protest against “corruption” and ask for their “legitimate demands” to be met. The policeman responds, saying he is not the right person to which to air to their grievances, explaining that as a security officer he has to follow instructions.“I’m not a politician,” says the officer. “I’m a policeman. Please, try to understand.”Another policeman addresses the group, speaking in Tamazight, before the Arabic-speaking officer intervenes again, reiterating his request for the protesters to leave the place.Another video brings a more touching image, demonstrating the relative silence in the streets of Al Hoceima during iftar, the fast-breaking Ramadan meal.While demonstrations continued in Al Hoceima after iftar , protesters and riot police were urged to put their tensions aside. In the video, shouts are heard from windows and in the streets calling for “mosamaha” (forgiveness) in this holy month.Both parties submitted to the request, with some cheering for  the small moment of relief amid the high tension. read more

New UN report paints mixed picture of Kosovos Provisional Institutions

Posted on by

In a report to the Security Council on the activities of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), Mr. Annan calls for Kosovo’s leaders and institutions to uphold the values of multi-ethnicity, tolerance and equal rights for all communities.The Secretary-General notes that not all ethnic communities meaningfully participate in the Provisional Institutions – the presidency, the government and the Kosovo Assembly. He voices concern that the Assembly “is once again refusing to take into account legitimate minority concerns in the legislative process, [and is] over-stepping its competencies.”But Mr. Annan says he was encouraged by some progress, including the preparation and adoption of laws at the central and local levels of self-government.Established in June 1999 following war in the province, UNMIK is an interim civilian administration led by the UN under which Kosovans can progressively enjoy greater autonomy.UNMIK retains certain reserved powers in Kosovo, including control over security, foreign relations, minority rights protection and energy, until the province’s final status is determined.Mr. Annan observed that in November a mechanism was set up to review and measure the progress made by the Provisional Institutions towards the benchmarks required before any final decision on Kosovo’s status can be made.In another development, UNMIK customs officers today detected a large quantity of what is suspected to be heroin in the boot of a car leaving Kosovo for Albania.The seized goods – the latest in a series of discoveries by UNMIK customs officers – have been transferred to the border police, with laboratory analysts set to determine the precise nature of the substance. read more

Heads of UN peace missions in West Africa to meet Friday

Posted on by

The gathering comes a week after the Force Commanders of the three UN peacekeeping missions in the area held a coordination meeting of their own to bolster sub-regional cross-border security. Hosted by the UN Office for West Africa, (UNOWA), the meeting will be held Friday on Gorée Island, Senegal. It will be chaired by Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for West Africa, Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, and attended by the chiefs of the UN Mission in Côte d’Ivoire (MINUCI), Albert Tevoedjre; the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), Jacques Paul Klein; the UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL), Daudi Ngelautwa Mwakawago; and the UN Peace-building support Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNOGBIS), David Stephen.

Failure on health bill also hurts prospects for tax overhaul

Posted on by

In this March 24, 2017, photo, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., announces that he is abruptly pulling the troubled Republican health care overhaul bill off the House floor, short of votes and eager to avoid a humiliating defeat for President Donald Trump and GOP leaders, at the Capitol in Washington. Trump wants to tackle tax reform, but the loss on health care deals a blow to that effort. The loss on health care deprives Republicans of $1 trillion in tax cuts, and the GOP is just as divided on what steps to take. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite) Failure on health bill also hurts prospects for tax overhaul WASHINGTON – House Republicans’ failure to repeal Barack Obama’s health care law deals a serious blow to another big part of President Donald Trump’s agenda: tax reform.Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., say they will soon turn their attention to the first major re-write of the tax code in more than 30 years. But they will have to do it without the momentum of victory on health care.Just as important, the loss on health care will deprive Republicans of $1 trillion in tax cuts.The GOP health plan would have repealed nearly $1 trillion in taxes enacted under Obama’s Affordable Care Act. The bill coupled the tax cuts with spending cuts for Medicaid, so it wouldn’t add to the budget deficit.Without the spending cuts, it will be much harder for Republicans to cut taxes without adding to the federal government’s red ink.“Yes this does make tax reform more difficult,” said Ryan. “But it does not in any way make it impossible.”“That just means the Obamacare taxes stay with Obamacare. We’re going to go fix the rest of the tax code,” he added.House Republicans couldn’t round up enough votes Friday to repeal and replace a law they despise, raising questions about their ability to tackle other tough issues.“Doing big things is hard,” Ryan conceded as he vowed to press on.Rep. Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, acknowledged that Friday’s turn of events made him doubtful about the Republicans’ ability to tackle major legislation.“This was my first big vote and our first big initiative in the line of things to come like tax reform,” said the freshman. “I think this would have given us tremendous momentum and I think this hurts that momentum.”Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., said, “You always build on your last accomplishment.”Nevertheless, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Friday the administration plans to turn quickly to tax reform with the goal of getting an overhaul approved by Congress by August.“Health care is a very complicated issue,” Mnuchin said. “In a way, tax reform is a lot simpler.”Don’t tell that to House Republicans who have been struggling with the issue for years.The general goal for Republicans is to lower income tax rates for individuals and corporations, and make up the lost revenue by reducing exemptions, deductions and credits.Overhauling the tax code is hard because every tax break has a constituency. And the biggest tax breaks are among the most popular.For example, nearly 34 million families claimed the mortgage interest deduction in 2016, reducing their tax bills by $65 billion.Also, more than 43 million families deducted their state and local income, sales and personal property taxes from their federal taxable income last year. The deduction reduced their federal tax bills by nearly $70 billion.Mnuchin said he had been overseeing work on the administration’s tax bill for the past two months. He said it would be introduced soon.Mnuchin said the White House plan would cut individual and corporate tax rates, though he didn’t offer specifics.House Republicans have released a blueprint that outlines their goals for a tax overhaul. It would lower the top individual income tax rate from 39.6 per cent to 33 per cent, and reduce the number of tax brackets from seven to three.The House plan retains the mortgage interest deduction but repeals the deduction for state and local taxes.On the corporate side, the plan would repeal the 35 per cent corporate income tax and replace it with a 20 per cent tax on profits from selling imports and domestically produced goods and services consumed in the U.S.Exports would be exempt from the new tax, called a border adjustment tax.The new tax has drawn opposition from Republicans in the Senate. Mnuchin would not reveal whether the administration will include the border adjustment tax in the White House proposal. He was speaking at a public interview event with the news site Axios.Republicans often complained that they couldn’t do a tax overhaul when Obama was president. Now, Republicans control the House, the Senate and the White House, and they see a great opportunity.They plan to use a complicated Senate rule that would prevent Democrats from blocking the bill. But there’s a catch: Under the rule, the package cannot add to long-term budget deficits.That means every tax cut has to be offset by a similar tax increase or a spending cut. That’s why the loss on health care was so damaging to the effort to overhaul taxes.Ryan made this case to fellow House Republicans in his failed effort to gain support for the health plan.“That was part of the calculation of why we had to take care of health care first,” said Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y.___Associated Press writers Kevin Freking and Martin Crutsinger contributed to this report.___Follow Stephen Ohlemacher on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/stephenatap by Stephen OhlemacHer, The Associated Press Posted Mar 25, 2017 10:51 am MDT Last Updated Mar 25, 2017 at 12:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

NFL week 11 guide to fantasy football

Posted on by

Play ‘em Shaun Hill (Detroit): Quarterback Matthew Stafford is hurt once again, which opens up the window of opportunity for Hill. Last week, Hill threw for 323 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Hill has now thrown for 300 yards or more yards in three games this season. Throw in the fact that Hill plays the Cowboys (21st-ranked pass defense), and Hill should be considered a starter, especially for teams fighting for a playoff spot or in need quarterback help. Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh): Roethlisberger is coming off his best game statistically, last week against New England, when he had 387 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Granted, the Steelers had to play catch up, but it was still impressive. Potentially losing Hines Ward to a head injury could decrease Big Ben’s value, but Mike Wallace is emerging as a solid wide receiver. Although Roethlisberger faces the second-best pass defense of Oakland, he had relative success against the Black Hole last year, throwing for 278 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Peyton Hillis (Cleveland): Hillis had a slight setback in Week 10 against the Jets, with 82 rushing yards, one touchdown and a lost fumble. With that touchdown, Hillis has now found the end zone in all but one of the Browns’ nine games. Expect Hillis to get back on track against a Jacksonville defense that surrenders 115 rushing yards per game. Jamaal Charles (Kansas City): The Broncos did a nice job bottling up Charles last week, holding him to 14 carries for 41 yards. However, Charles managed 80 yards receiving with a touchdown. Going forward, Charles will continue to split carries with Thomas Jones but will be the focal point in the Chiefs’ offense. Consider Charles a No. 1 fantasy running back this week against Arizona, which allows the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs and is coming off a 91-yard, touchdown performance by the Bucs’ LaGarrette Blount. Dez Bryant (Dallas): One player benefiting from Tony Romo’s injury has been Bryant. Last week, Bryant had 104 yards and a touchdown. As long as Jon Kitna is the starting quarterback, Bryant will remain a better option than Miles Austin. This week, Bryant faces a Lions defense that allows 233 passing yards per game. Bryant makes a solid No. 2 fantasy wide receiver option this week. Marques Colston (New Orleans): After a slow start to the 2010 season, Colston is starting to produce. In Week 9 against Carolina, Colston caught eight passes for 65 yards. Expect Colston to find the end zone against Seattle, which allows the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Bench ‘em Matt Schaub (Houston): Schaub received treatment on his knee that forced a trip to the hospital this week. Last week, Schaub threw for 314 yards and two touchdowns against Jacksonville. Don’t expect a repeat performance against the Jets. Jay Cutler (Chicago): Cutler has potential to be a quality fantasy quarterback because of the Bears’ offense, but has not shown it yet. Last week against Minnesota, Cutler threw for 237 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Interceptions continue to be Cutler’s problem; he’s thrown nine. Until the Bears get a go-to receiver, Cutler will struggle. Matt Forte (Chicago): Forte continues to get a lot of touches but is unable to pile up the yardage. Last week, Forte had 21 carries for 69 yards. Forte is losing goal-line carries to Chester Taylor and has yet to score a touchdown since Week 6 against Seattle. Forte is too inconsistent to start each week. Brandon Jackson (Green Bay): Jackson showed some versatility in Week 9 against Dallas, with 42 rushing yards, 26 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Jackson won’t put up big numbers against a Vikings defense that allows 100 rushing yards per game and hasn’t allowed a rushing touchdown in two straight games. Mike Williams (Seattle): Williams had a broken pinkie but still had 145 receiving yards last week. Like Forte, Williams’ problem is inconsistency, with three double-digit receiving games versus four games with fewer than two catches. Williams’ production will dip if Matt Hasselbeck is not starting. This week, Williams faces a Saints defense that allows the fewest amount of fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers (9). Chad Ochocinco (Cincinnati): Ocho is battling a shoulder injury but regardless of health, Ocho is a bench player. In his last game against Buffalo, he had three receptions for 48 yards. Also, the Bills have a surprisingly stout pass defense, allowing just 207 yards per game. Expect Terrell Owens to get the majority of the looks against his former team. read more

NORAD Christmas Eve Santa Tracking Begins

Posted on by

first_imgMerry Christmas, everyone. The lists have been assessed. Twice, in fact. The naughty have been weeded out from the nice, and now it’s time for jolly old Saint Nick to get down to what he does best (aside from the whole cookie and milk thing): delivering presents.If you just can’t wait for tonight to get in on the Santa action, good news–NORAD is tracking the jolly old fat man, as it has for the last 50 years, ever since a Colorado-area Sears store accidentally printed the contact information for the missile defense organization under a listing for Mr. Claus.Things are a lot different than they were in 1955, of course–thanks to social networking, it’s now possible to track Santa’s every move (just like it is with the rest of us non-holiday icons). NORAD is utilizing Twitter, Facebook, and Google Earth to track Santa’s deliveries tonight. You can find all of that info over on the official Santa Tracking page.last_img read more

New Kindle lets you unsubscribe from Special Offers for 30

Posted on by

first_imgThe ability to pick up a latest generation Kindle for just $79 is going to be too tempting for a lot of people to pass up. However, in order to achieve that low price, Amazon ships you a Kindle with Special Offers, their nice way of saying “advertising.” Amazon also saved a few dollars by removing the power adaptor from the package.The adverts you see aren’t meant to be too intrusive, but that doesn’t mean a heavy Kindle user won’t tire of seeing them every day. The good news is, if you do get sick of the ads it is possible to remove them from your device.Amazon has included an option to turn off the Special Offers on the latest (K4) generation Kindle from your Amazon account. The only downside to choosing to do so is that it will cost your $30, therefore taking the price back up to the $109 you would have had to pay anyway.Turning off Special Offers is really easy to do. Just visit Amazon and login to your account. You should then be able to see a Manage Your Kindle button or link which you need to click. That will bring up your Kindle options and there should be a Subscribe column. Load that up and then edit the options to turn off the Special Offers and pay the $30.Unfortunately, this won’t work for older Kindles, but then you could also argue that the savings you make with the discounts offered through Special Offers are worth seeing a few adverts now and again. For new Kindle buyers it does mean you now have more choice: spend $79 and see if you can stand the adverts. If you can’t, save up another $30 and get rid of them.via Mobilereadlast_img read more

Pure Planet equalises maternity and paternity benefits

Posted on by

first_imgRenewable energy supplier Pure Planet has equalised its maternity and paternity benefits, enabling both mothers and fathers to take up to 52 weeks of leave to care for a new child at an enhanced pay rate.Pure Planet has been operational for just over six months. It previously had statutory parental leave benefits in place while developing its new policy.Statutory maternity leave enables eligible mothers to take up to 52 weeks of leave to care for a newborn, and statutory maternity pay lasts for the first 39 weeks. The initial 6 weeks are paid at 90% of the employee’s average weekly earnings (AWE), and the remainder at £145.18, or 90% of the employee’s AWE, depending on which is lower. Statutory paternity leave allows eligible fathers to take up to two weeks of consecutive leave, paid at the same rate of either £145.18, or 90% of their AWE.The new parental leave benefit, effective from April 2018, is applicable to all of the organisation’s 30 employees. This includes male and female staff who have a child by birth, surrogacy or adoption.Pure Planet’s new policy allows employees to receive a set amount of leave at full pay, which is then gradually reduced over the duration of the leave period. The enhanced parental leave pay is higher than the statutory pay rates.Steven Day (pictured), co-founder at Pure Planet, said: “Genuinely treating people equally is fundamental. But we are only one of a small number of businesses to offer this benefit in the UK. We hope by doing so we can encourage the type of cultural change that is needed when it comes to parental leave. And we’ll continue to explore other ways to improve as an employer.“Pure Planet is a modern, progressive [organisation] which prides itself on providing clean, affordable energy; we want to create a better world for our children. It’s natural that we would want our team to enjoy equal rights when it comes to spending time with their families too.”last_img read more

Dhaka summons Myanmar ambassador protests at antiBangladesh remarks

Posted on by

first_img.The government of Bangladesh on Wednesday strongly protested Myanmar’s recent ‘anti-Bangladesh and racist’ remarks by a Myanmar minister.Dhaka said Myanmar’s such remarks are “unacceptable” that hurt the sentiment of Muslims, reports UNB.Myanmar ambassador in Dhaka Lwin Oo was summoned at the office of maritime affairs unit secretary at the ministry of foreign affairs M Khurshed Alam to lodge the protest, the agency quoted a diplomatic source as saying.Prothom Alo’s diplomatic correspondent reported that the ambassador Lwin was not served with tea during the meeting while it is customary to serve tea to the visitors in this kind of meeting.Myanmar’s religious affairs and culture minister Thura Aung Ko on Tuesday said Rohingyas living in Bangladesh are being “brainwashed” and Bangladesh is not allowing them to return, according to international media reports.Myanmar refers to the Rohingyas as “Bengalis” apparently to suggest that they are from Bangladesh but Rohingyas say they are from Rakhine state of Myanmar.The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has recently said there is compelling evidence that the Myanmar military committed ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Rohingya, the Muslim minority population of Myanmar.The Museum came to the conclusion based on: a careful analysis in consultation with an advisory group of atrocity experts; its own on-the-ground, original research that resulted in a joint report in 2017 with Fortify Rights; and information recently released in the Department of State’s documentation report and the United Nations Fact-Finding Mission.”The Burmese [Myanmar] military’s campaign against the Rohingya, especially the attacks of August 2017, have been deliberate, systematic, and widespread,” said Lee Feinstein, a member of the Museum’s governing Council and the Chairman of its Committee on Conscience, which advises the genocide prevention work of the Museum.”For the sake of the remnant community of Rohingya still in Burma and those threatened with being returned, we hope this announcement prods action,” Feinstein added.For decades, the Myanmar government has persecuted the Rohingya, stripping them of citizenship and subjecting them to waves of mass violence, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.last_img read more
