Retract decision to demolish Mangu Mutt: Punjab CM

first_imgPunjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh wrote to Odisha’s Naveen Patnaik on Saturday, urging him to retract his government’s decision to demolish the Mangu Mutt in Puri, which is associated with Sikhism founder Guru Nanak.Mr. Singh described as unfortunate the move to demolish the mutt, which has age-old significance for the Sikh community as Guru Nanak Dev visited the holy site to spread his message.‘Shocking decision’“It was shocking that while the whole world was getting ready to commemorate the 550th ‘Prakash Purb’ of the first Sikh Guru, the historically important mutt, a symbol of the connection between Sikhism and the Jagannath Temple, was sought to be demolished by the Odisha government,” said Mr. Singh in a statement.The Mutt is among many structures within 75-metre radius of the Jagannath Temple that are being demolished to ensure safety and security of the 12th century shrine, following a decision of the Odisha government led by Mr. Patnaik.Opposing the move, several organisations earlier said at least 12 major mutts and shrines associated with the Jagannath Temple are located within the 75-metre demolition radius.last_img read more

Florida freshmen team up for Scarlet and Gray

Ohio State’s baseball team didn’t end the season how it wanted to, but it wasn’t a total failure going to Tallahassee, Fla., for the NCAA Regional.The Buckeyes lost to Florida State 37-6 in a game the team would like to forget.Recruiting visits in Tallahassee for the Buckeyes were more successful than the actual baseball playing. Manager Bob Todd was able to snag a right-handed pitcher and an outfielder, both from the same high school.Outfielder Hunter Mayfield and pitcher Cole Brown both decided to leave Tallahassee to go north to play baseball.For Brown, the decision to come to OSU to play baseball was a relatively easy one. Brown said Mayfield committed to OSU and then the coaches started pursuing him.“I came up here on a visit,” Brown said. “I just loved everything about OSU.”Mayfield may have not been the reason for Brown to commit to OSU, but he has been helpful. Brown said that he and Mayfield have been friends since middle school.Mayfield shared the same feelings, saying that it was nice to know at least one person at the start.The Buckeyes will be making a series of trips back to Florida for tournaments over the next month and a half, and both are looking forward to those trips.Unfortunately for Brown, playing time to start off the season will be limited. In his senior year of high school Brown only made two appearances because of an injury to his shoulder.“I’m doing good. I am back to 100 percent,” Brown said. “Now I just need to get my velocity back.”Todd spoke on Brown’s injury, saying he is going to bring him along slowly. Giving him the needed rest and rehab now, Todd is hoping he will be able to be used late in the season.On the other hand, Mayfield said he has been told he might see some playing time early in the season. If he isn’t able to play, Mayfield said he is fine with that. He just wants to do whatever to help the team.Whether the two see playing time or not, they have one positive thing to look forward to. With all the snow that Columbus received over the past few weeks, both are ready for warmer weather.Brown said in Florida they get to play outside throughout the year, while here at OSU they have had to stick to practicing inside. read more

NFL Week 12 guide to fantasy football

Play ‘Em Matt Cassel (Kansas City): One quarterback not getting the respect he deserves is Cassel, who has thrown for 18 touchdowns versus four interceptions. Much of that production is because of Dwayne Bowe’s emergence as a solid wide receiver. Either way, Cassel has a nice matchup against Seattle, which ranks in the top 10 in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Mark Sanchez (New York): Last week, Sanchez, battling a calf injury, threw for 315 yards with three touchdowns and one interception against Houston. That performance gives Sanchez three straight weeks with at least 27 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues. Consider Sanchez a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback against a Bengals defense that got torched by the Bills’ Ryan Fitzpatrick to the tune of 316 yards and four touchdowns last week. Mike Tolbert (San Diego): Tolbert continued his breakout 2010 season with an impressive performance Monday night against Denver, with 111 rushing yards with a touchdown. Look for similar numbers against a Colts run defense that allows the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Darren McFadden (Oakland): McFadden has been quiet the last two weeks, totaling 103 rushing yards with zero touchdowns. Granted, Week 11 was against Pittsburgh. McFadden should return to form against a Dolphins’ defense that allows 113 rushing yards per game. Based on the matchup, McFadden is a low-end No. 1 running back. Steve Johnson (Buffalo): Like Tolbert, Johnson is having a breakout 2010 season, with 728 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Although Johnson faces the Steelers, he is a must-start from now on. The Steelers rank 22nd in pass defense and have allowed five passing touchdowns to opposing wide receivers in their past five games. So, Steve Johnson, “Why So Serious?” Vincent Jackson (San Diego): Jackson is back after serving a three-game suspension and signing his contract late. This is great timing because Patrick Crayton (wrist) is out, Antonio Gates is still battling a foot injury, and Malcom Floyd tweaked his hamstring. Jackson will benefit by having the league’s leading passer in Philip Rivers and going against a Colts defense allowing 208 passing yards per game. Bench ‘Em David Garrard (Jacksonville): Garrard looked terrible last week, with 254 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. The Jaguars’ offense will stall a little with Mike Sims-Walker out. This week, Garrard faces a Giants defense that allowing 14 fantasy points per week. Fred Jackson (Buffalo): Jackson has been solid in his past three games, with four touchdowns and back-to-back 100-yard games. This week, he faces a Steelers defense allowing 63 rushing yards per game and a total of four touchdowns on the ground. Only the Patriots’ BenJarvus Green-Ellis has managed to go over 50 rushing yards against the Steelers. Look for other options at the running back position this week. Beanie Wells (Arizona): Wells had eight carries for 39 yards last week against Kansas City. Wells’ knee continues to be a burden and the Cardinals continue to use a two-back system. In Week 12, Wells faces a Niners defense that ranks ninth in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. Brandon Marshall (Miami): It’s unclear if Marshall will play this week against Oakland (top five pass defense) because of a hamstring injury. Marshall hasn’t recorded double-digit fantasy points in standard leagues since Week 6. The Dolphins’ offense is a mess, led by quarterback Tyler Thigpen. Keep Marshall on your bench and hope he’s ready for the playoffs. Johnny Knox (Chicago): Knox continues to be Cutler’s favorite target, with five catches for 55 yards on eight targets last week. But the attention hasn’t translated to fantasy production. The yards are there but the touchdowns are not (one for the year). Expect corner Asante Samuel, who leads the NFL with seven interceptions, to be defending Knox, who is more of a flex option against the Eagles. read more

Over 1200 killed in road crashes in 3 months

first_imgAt least 1,212 people, including 157 women and 215 children, were killed and 2,429 others injured in 1,168 road accidents in the first three months of the current year.The accidents took place on various highways, national, inter-district and regional roads between 1 January and 31 March across the country.The National Committee to Protect Shipping, Roads and Railways (NCPSRR), a non-government organisation, on Tuesday revealed the information in its regular monthly survey and observation report, reports UNB.The report was prepared on the basis of 22 national dailies, 10 regional newspapers and eight online news portals and news agencies.According to the report, 411 people, including 53 women and 71 children, lost lives and 725 others received injuries in 383 accidents in January. Some 401 accidents occurred in February when 415 people were killed while 884 others injured. Among the deceased, 58 were women and 62 children.In March, 386 people, including 46 women and 82 children, died and 820 others were injured in 384 road crashes.Ashis Kumar Dey, general secretary of the national committee, said they identified 10 major reasons for increasing road accidents.The reasons are: Racing tendency among drivers and reckless driving, contractual leasing of vehicles to drivers or conductors on daily basis, employing drivers without having any licence, lack of awareness of pedestrians and small vehicle drivers, especially motorcyclists, overloading and overtaking tendency of drivers violating traffic rules.Besides, long-time driving without any interval, lack of implementation of law to stop plying of unfit vehicles, violation of traffic rules on long routes, increase in motorcycles and three-wheelers on roads and highways, and carrying passengers and goods in locally-made motorised vehicles.last_img read more

A Path Out Of Poverty Career Training Quality Pre K

first_img Share Logan Faerber/Getty Images/Imagezoo RMWhat makes a high-quality learning program effective not just for the child but the whole family? What else, besides a well-run pre-K, is essential to help families break out of intergenerational poverty?These are some of the key questions that an approach called “two-generation” programs are working to answer. There are many of these “two-gen” programs across the U.S. And while they differ in emphasis and detail, at their core they intentionally focus on ways to help both the child and parent. Usually this happens through targeted education and career training and other vital support such as health services, mentoring, and transportation.NPR Ed has been keeping an eye on one innovative two-gen program in Oklahoma. It’s called Career Advance and is run by the Community Action Project of Tulsa County (CAP Tulsa). I’ve reported on it here and here. It gives low-income mothers access to high-quality Head Start for their children, alongside free career training in nursing and other in-demand health care fields as well as life coaching and support.A new study on the first year impact of Tulsa’s Career Advance that’s just been released shows that, so far, Career Advance is working well for both parents and their children. In fact, the study says, CAP Tulsa’s program is working better than similar combined job training and pre-K programs elsewhere in terms of job certification, employment, income and overall well-being for the parent. And, the report shows, the program has boosted attendance and reduced absenteeism among participating children.I reached out to two of study’s co-authors to find out more. Teresa Eckrich Sommer is a research professor at Northwestern University’s Institute for Policy Research. Chris King is a senior research scientist and lecturer at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin.When I went down to report on the program, no one had studied it in-depth. Is this the first big look at this program and its impact? Teresa Ekrich Sommer: This is the first one. We’re [a colleague, Lindsay Chase-Lansdale at Northwestern University, is the first author on this paper] looking at what happens at the end of year one.In terms of their education, we see that participants had much higher rates of certification in the healthcare fields. And then we see that in terms of employment, a greater proportion of the families, at the end of the first year, are employed in the specific career to which they’ve been trained, as compared to those who weren’t in the program. Sixty-one percent compared to 3 percent.Chris King: I would add to that, Eric, that the kinds of impacts we’re seeing, certainly in terms of job certification, the shifts towards healthcare employment are much larger than anything you see in most other similar career pathway programs. I think this speaks to the components of the model: the career coaching, the peer groups and the incentives.[The program offers a $3,000 a year max incentive if certain goals are reached — for example, attendance at monthly partner meetings for skills training, as well as incentives for achieving milestones such as certification.]You’re saying that there’s no secret sauce, that it’s the whole package? The financial incentives, the career counseling, the mentoring, etc., all together?Eckrich Sommer: We can’t conclusively say what single element matters the most. You know, at the base, just having this high-quality early childhood education is an incredible starting point for them.There’s no question that the financial incentives make an enormous difference to them in their lives. Many of them have previous college debt, and are struggling financially. And we have people in the comparison group that are similar in motivation and interest and talk about how big their financial struggles are. So I think that’s a significant piece.Also, I wouldn’t want to leave out the importance of the fact that these are families doing this together. They’re in a small learning group. They go to school together, they have their schedules for school when they start out coordinated with their child’s Head Start schedule, so they can both pick up and drop off their kids and still go to school. And many continue to work, usually in off hours.And also this coach is an essential element to helping families break down big goals, set specific markers along the way and be able to achieve them. Such as becoming a certified nurse assistant or becoming a licensed nurse practitioner, and knowing how to make those steps and decide, ‘Should I take a full course-load? Can I take a half course-load? How do I do this and manage the work and income I need for my family?’ with the education that they’re trying to pursue at the same time.For the children, I also see that attendance was better and fewer were chronically absent. But the absentee rate is still kinda high. Near 50 percent. Do you think there’s more to do to lower that?Eckrich Sommer: I think there is. I know that the eye goes towards the high rate. The bar is pretty low, it’s missing 10 percent or more of the school days. It tends to be a few kids who are absent a lot that drive up those numbers.Your report argues that Career Advance is doing better than comparable career training programs in other cities in America. In your view, what exactly is Career Advance doing better?King: Career Advance fits within the family of other career pathway sector strategies. Employer-driven strategies based in specific growth sectors of the labor market that offer opportunities for career advancement over time in jobs with good wages and benefits, e.g., health care, advanced manufacturing, transportation and logistics. It may be that they have more of all these elements feeding together to make the success possible. What we really have, I think, blown away is traditional postsecondary workforce and education training which doesn’t have persistence completion and employment kinds of effects the same size, at all, to what we’re seeing here.Eckrich Sommer: What’s incredibly important is that we’re building on what’s already a positive platform, which is early childhood education. So we know the kids are getting these huge benefits. And then we’re adding to that these incredible benefits to the parents.The question is, what is the overall effect over time? And as we follow the kids we’ll know that in a few years.There’s additional help under the program: gas cards, bus passes, childcare outside of Head Start’s normal hours. Overall, it’s costly. Can it be scaled or replicated easily?King: Easily, probably not. … It’s admittedly a high-cost intervention. So you’re paying for both parents and kids to get leading-edge, high-quality services, very intensive. At the same time, the way the Career Advance model has rolled out, it really hasn’t been a model that relied on the other partners involved to ante up.And I think going forward the way to scale this thing up is to go to the workforce system. To go to the community college system. To go to other providers in the community and say ‘OK, we’re providing the wraparound services, the career coaches, the Head Start services.’ You could then begin to share the cost for training those parents going forward and probably cut those costs to some extent.We know that the return on investment for early childhood is what, [between] 7 [and] 13-to-1. I mean, it’s high. We see similar returns for adult services in career pathway sector models. So the theory that we’re operating under, we don’t have the proof yet, is that when you combine them, you should get at least that, if not more.If someone from another city said ‘We want to replicate this, but it looks expensive.’ What do you tell them?Eckrich Sommer: What’s really interesting and important to think about is these initial investments, I think, have led to some changes in the way the local educational partners do their business. And that kind of systems change is essential.So, for example, by buying classes at the local community college, and working very closely with the instructors there, they’ve thought much harder about how do you serve families well? Parents of young children, who in fact, are a large majority of the population at many community colleges nationally.And so if you change the way things are done in a traditional school system, then you’re making improvements that you can’t even quantify, but you know , are the result of this initial big investment.It’s not cheap, but it is less expensive than the initial intensive model.And we will have more results, unfortunately, in about five years.What are the takeaways here for cities and states that might not be able to afford this kind of a gold-standard program, but still want to try to replicate some of the achievements CAP Tulsa is seeing?King: [Colleges need to] make it easier for all students, but especially parents, to navigate what the offerings are, and focus those offerings on sectors that are growing, that will lead to families sustaining jobs. Project Quest in San Antonio has done a good job. [Other leading examples include programs with the Wisconsin Regional Training Partnership, Per Scholas, and Jewish Vocational Services.]Having governors support [two-gen] strategies and having local workforce entities pursue them is now part of the federal legislation and guidance coming out of the U.S. Department of Labor. Under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, governors must support implementation of career, private sector strategies statewide and are encouraged to embed career pathway approaches as well.Eckrich Sommer: I think it’s about partnership. And I think community colleges and early childhood education programs and anti-poverty programs can work together, and figure out how they can both serve parents and children.And I think they’re both invested in that, but they tend to focus on their primary population and if they think about investing in the other, and how it’ll improve the gains for each, then everyone’s better off.[The CAP Tulsa study was funded in part by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as part of the Affordable Care Act’s Health Professions Opportunity Grant]Copyright 2017 NPR.

MAYOR MAOLIOSA MCHUGHRELIVE THE ERA OF THE NORTH W

first_img MAYOR MAOLIOSA MCHUGHRELIVE THE ERA OF THE NORTH WEST DANCE HALLS TONIGHT AT THE ALLEYstrabaneTHE ALLEY THEATRE ShareTweet PEOPLE throughout the North West have a fantastic opportunity to be transported back in time to the golden era of the dancehalls for one night only at the Alley Theatre in Strabane tonight, Thursday, January 25 at 8pm.Fifty years ago almost every town and village in the North West had a dancehall – including the famous Pallidrome Ballroom in Strabane and Orchid Ballroom in Lifford.Indeed, Strabane was also home to the legendary Clipper Carlton showband and the Pallidrome hosted thousands of dancers every Friday and Saturday night.Thanks to this year’s ‘Music to your Ears’ project, 30 men will be playing a range of different instruments at the Alley Theatre tonight – which will feature the story of the Pallidrome and Orchid ballrooms as seen through the eyes and ears of people who lived through the dancehall days. Asking the group where the show title came from, they explained that dancehalls were alcohol free places, so if a girl agreed to go for a mineral then she was agreeing to be your date for the evening!This Derry City and Strabane District Council project is part of the Arts for the Third Age Project and has received support through the lead partner Arts Council of Northern Ireland under their Arts and Older Peoples Programme – which is jointly funded by Arts Council of Northern Ireland, the National Lottery, the Public Health Agency and the Baring Foundation.A fantastic night of entertainment and music nostalgia is guaranteed – featuring songs and stories of the many international stars who graced both stages in Strabane and Lifford – including Roy Orbison, Chubby Checker, Bill Haley and the Comets, Jim Reeves, Engelbert Humperdinck, The Tremelos and many more.Tickets for ‘Are you going for a mineral?’ are £5 and can be purchased via the Alley Theatre Box Office on 02871 384444 or online at www.alley-theatre.comFor further information on the ‘Music to your Ears’ project contact Arts Development Officer at Derry City and Strabane District Council Jean Smyth on 02871 253 253 Ext 4295.RELIVE THE ERA OF THE NORTH WEST DANCE HALLS TONIGHT AT THE ALLEY was last modified: January 25th, 2018 by John2John2 Tags: The ‘Music to your Ears’ project offers an opportunity for men to hone their music skills and enjoy some male company with their peers – as well as gain confidence to accompany fellow musicians.Thirty local guys have being working on music pieces of interest to them at Strabane Library since September under the tutorship of professional musicians Mickey Joe Harte, Terry McCafferty and latterly Ronan Doherty.Many of the guys have engaged in the arts through an earlier project but for others this is their first forte into the world of performance.The goal that the men have been working towards is a finale performance – ‘Are you going for a mineral?’ at the Alley Theatre tonight when they hope to take the audience on a walk down memory lane.last_img read more
