Saudi Arabia raises Indias Haj quota by 30000

first_imgOsaka: In a significant step, Saudi Arabia has increased India’s Haj quota from 170,000 to 200,000, paving the way for 30,000 more Indians to go for the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca in the kingdom. The issue of India’s Haj quota was discussed during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s bilateral talks with Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman here. Modi, who is in Japan for the G20 Summit, discussed the deepening cooperation in trade and investment, energy security and counter-terrorism with the “invaluable strategic partner”. Also Read – Merkel warns UK Brexit deal ‘unlikely’ without compromise: London Addressing a press conference after the meeting, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said that the Crown Prince had promised Prime Minister Modi that India’s Haj quota would be raised from 170,000 to 200,000 annually. “This is important and this has been done,” he said. Two lakh Indians will have the opportunity to go for Haj which will begin very shortly, Gokhale said. The two leaders also spoke about the need for greater tourism, more flights and agreed to meet again, he said.

The government last year allowed women to go on Haj without ‘Mehram’ or male companion, which saw about 1,300 women going without any male companion. They had been exempted from the lottery system. Last year, Saudi Arabia increased India’s Haj quota by 5,000, while in 2017 it was increased by about 35,000. The Haj subsidy provided by the government was removed last year in the light of a Supreme Court order of 2012.last_img read more

Hate Crime in New York, Man Beats Muslim Store Owner

New York – Another hate crime against Muslims occurred in New York City. A Muslim store owner was heavily beaten by a man who said “I kill Muslims”, according to local news Pix 11.Fifty-three-year old Sarker Haque, an American Muslim from Bangladesh, owner of the Fatima Food Mart on 21st Avenue in Astoria, Queens, recounts how a man stormed through his shop and punched him repeatedly for being a Muslim.In a television news report by the same source, Haque appeared with a black eye and described the incident that occurred on Saturday afternoon.“He punched me here,” the victim said referencing the back of his neck. “I fell down here,” he showed near an ice cream cooler inside the Fatima Food Mart. He went on to add: “I say, ‘What the hell you doing? What’s wrong with you? [The attacker] said, ‘I kill Muslims.’”According to the same source, Astoria police have identified the attacker as Piro Kolvani. He was arrested and charged with hate crime, yet he was later released.“He punched me as much as he can with his left hand,” Haque explained in tears to Pix 11 news reporter. “He grabbed me here. Then punched me here,” he added, while pointing to his face.Fortunately, two unidentified passersby saw the attack against Haque and defended him from the attacker until police arrived.A Latino man, Haque described as one of his loyal customers heard his cries for help and rushed to the scene.“I’m bleeding this time,” the victim said, “so [my customer took] hold of [the attacker]”.Another man called 911 when he saw the incident. Neither of the two good Samaritans that saved the Muslim store owner were Muslims, the same source noted.“It doesn’t matter what color or nationality you are,” the victim said. “We are in America. Everybody came from somewhere.”However, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, whose anti-Muslim rhetoric is turning Muslims into America’s number one “enemies,” does not share that mentality.Trump said on Monday he wants to ban entrance of Muslims into the U.S. He also wants to impose a special ID card for all Muslims in America.A series of hate crimes toward Muslims have occurred in New York and the Northeast of the U.S. following the Paris attacks on November 13.Last Sunday, the same report noted, someone threw a rotting and bloody pig’s head outside of a mosque in Philadelphia.Last month, at P.S. 89 elementary school in the Bronx in New York, a group of sixth-graders bullied and tried to remove a girl’s hijab from her head. The kids accused her of belonging to ISIS. read more

General Fund receipts increase by nearly twopercent

The state says sales increase and use tax and cigarette taxes out-paced declines in the income.Natural resources and property taxes as the impacts of tax law changes continue to influence monthly receipts.State Budget Director Chilton emphasized that economic growth continues in the Commonwealth but until full implementation, tax law changes will dominate the flow of monthly receipts.Related Article: Trump’s campaign agenda found in his new budget proposal“Clearly the impacts of legislation are continuing to enhance several of our revenue accounts and that will continue for many more months. Fiscal Year 2020 has started much like FY19 ended, with strong growth in sales and excise taxes coupled with declines in the income-related revenue sources. Due to the effective dates of the tax law changes and taxpayer responses to the changes, it may be well into the fiscal year until tax policy impacts are more clearly discernible in actual receipts. Additionally, it is common to see large fluctuations in growth rates early in the fiscal year until receipts begin to stabilize; typically, after three or four months. As always, we will closely monitor receipts as well as the economic conditions of the Commonwealth.”Among the major accounts:• Individual income tax receipts fell 0.5 percent as withholding collections fell 0.4 percent.• Sales tax revenues grew 10.7 percent.• Corporation and LLET receipts declined a combined 13.3 percent.• Total cigarette tax collections fell 24.0 percent in July because the floor stocks tax yielded $13.1 million in July 2018 and that revenue was nonrecurring. The cigarette excise and surtax grew 13.9 percent in July 2019 when the effects of the floor stocks tax are eliminated.• Property tax receipts fell 22.0 percent on a very small base of collections.• Coal severance tax revenues fell 1.1 percent to $5.1 million.• Lottery revenues increased by $1 million to $19.0 million.Road Fund revenues for July totaled $128.2 million, a 0.4 percent increase compared to last July. The official Road Fund revenue estimate for FY20 calls for revenue to decline 3.7 percent compared to FY19 actual receipts. Based on the first month’s receipts, revenues can fall 4.0 percent for the rest of the fiscal year and still meet budgeted levels. Like the General Fund, new official Road Fund revenue estimates for the current year and the next two fiscal years will be established by the CFG in December.Among the major Road Fund categories:• Motor fuels tax receipts fell 2.4 percent.• Motor vehicle usage tax grew 10.7 percent.• License and privilege taxes fell 9.7 percent. FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – State Budget Director John Chilton announced on Monday that Kentucky’s General Fund receipts for July, totaled $845.7 million.The state says this is a 1.9% increase compared to July 2018 receipts.- Advertisement – read more

We feared for our lives Visitors stuck hung upsidedown on notorious Smiler

first_imgVisitors at Alton Towers theme park have described their shock after becoming stuck on board the Smiler ride on which four people suffered serious injuries two years ago. Passengers reported being trapped on the ride for as long as 45 minutes while theme park staff investigated a technical fault that had brought the ride to a halt.The incident brought back memories of the June 2015 crash in which 16 people were injured, including two teenagers who subsequently had legs amputated, while another passenger’s knees were shattered and another suffered from a punctured lung and broken leg. Theme park staff insisted the incident on Monday was due to a minor technical fault and that the safety of guests had not been compromised.Visitors posted pictures of the scene to social media, showing a number of people stuck in a steep climb.One poster who recorded the incident on Snapchat said: “Over a year after the accident and they’re stuck again!!” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Forage en mer Arnold Schwarzenegger retire son soutien à la proposition de

first_imgForage en mer : Arnold Schwarzenegger retire son soutien à la proposition de Barack Obama Californie, États-Unis – En faveur de l’extension des forages en mer au large de l’État il y a encore quelques jours, le gouverneur Arnold Schwarzenegger a finalement retiré son soutien à la proposition de Barack Obama. Un volte-face qu’il justifie en invoquant la marée noire sévissant actuellement dans le golfe du Mexique.Lors d’une conférence de presse, l’ancien acteur a expliqué que l’ampleur de la marée noire qui menace les côtes américaines du golfe du Mexique a fait évoluer son opinion quant au forage en mer. Le gouverneur de Californie a assuré qu’il avait jusqu’alors soutenu le projet parce qu’il était certain qu’il remplissait toutes les conditions de sécurité.L’extraction pétrolière au large de Santa Barbara devait contribuer à combler le déficit budgétaire de l’État à hauteur de 100 millions de dollars, “mais si je dois choisir entre 100 millions de dollars et ce que je vois dans le golfe du Mexique, je me dis qu’il faut chercher une autre solution” a expliqué Arnold Schwarzenegger.Et le gouverneur de conclure : “Vous allumez la télévision, vous voyez l’étendue de la catastrophe et vous vous dites: ‘Pourquoi prendre ce risque ?’ Le jeu n’en vaut pas la chandelle”.Le volte-face d’Arnold Schwarzenegger fait suite à celui de Charlie Crist, le gouverneur de Floride. Ce dernier s’est lui-aussi soudainement déclaré contre l’extension des forages en mer aux États-Unis, face à la marée noire qui menace les côtes de son État.Le 6 mai 2010 à 10:31 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Apples idea of the perfect mobile experience costs at least 1177

first_imgApple, as usual, was really enthusiastic about the new gadgets it revealed on stage yesterday. By introducing the iPhone 7, the Apple Watch Series 2, and the wireless AirPods, Apple is attempting to create a complete mobile experience for everyone. However, to get that complete experience is going to cost you a small fortune.At the very least, Apple would like you to purchase an iPhone 7, to have an Apple Watch Series 2 on your wrist, and to be wearing AirPods in your ears. I say “at the very least” because we are talking the bottom end of the range here for the next-gen iGadgets. The 32GB iPhone 7 starts at $649, the Apple Watch Series 2 starts at $369, and the AirPods cost $159.So, the minimum cost of entry to Apple’s “complete” mobile experience is a quite staggering $1,177. If you want the top-end, then that will be a 256GB iPhone 7 Plus ($969), a black stainless steel case and link bracelet Apple Watch ($1049), and AirPods ($159) for a total cost of $2,177. And I haven’t even mentioned the price of any other accessories you’ll want, e.g. a phone case, and then there’s a Mac… but we won’t go there today.If you’re on a tight budget then you can cut the cost of entry significantly by opting to pay for your iPhone 7 monthly as part of a carrier contract, but you’ll still end up paying at least the original price for it eventually. Or you could opt not to get those AirPods and/or the Watch, but don’t expect Apple to stop suggesting you really need them.Apple likes to portray itself as the company providing the best experiences when living inside its gadget ecosystem. But that comes at a cost, and it is the most costly ecosystem out there. Not because the gadgets it creates are expensive to make, but because of how big of a profit margin is always built into their prices.It’s true that the combination of iPhone 7 + Apple Watch 2 + AirPods is unique, but it’s also uniquely expensive. And Apple is skating on thin ice with this seventh generation of  iPhone. The removal of the headphone jack has not been received well, and it’s easy to view Phil Schiller’s reference to “courage” in doing so as actually meaning “more profit and control.”Will the iPhone 7 still sell well? Yes, of course, it’s an iPhone! But it used to be the case that Apple was pushing a pricey smartphone at these events. Now it’s pushing a multi-gadget experience, and with it the price of entry has pretty much doubled. That’s not sustainable, especially when you’re rolling out “our best devices ever” relentlessly every year.last_img read more

Taser Drone Will Give Cops An Autonomous Flying Stun Gun

first_imgStay on target You’ve seen a bunch of stories about companies that want to deliver parcels using autonomous drones. Taser wants to deliver something else with theirs: justice!Yes, that’s the same Taser that makes the stun guns (make that “electrical smart weapons“) police officers around the world use to incapacitate lawbreakers. They make other equipment modern police departments rely upon, like body cameras and dash cams.Like most major companies, Taser is always keeping an eye on the future. And just like Amazon, the U.S. Postal Service, and 7-Eleven, they think that drones will play a major role in their future. At a recent event for law enforcement professionals, Taser showed off what they’re working on.The actual drone they brought along wasn’t one they developed themselves. It was an off-the-shelf unit, modified to carry one of their smart weapons. It’s not permanently attached, though. Taser wants their drone to be adaptable, so the stun gun can be swapped for, say, a super-bright flashlight to illuminate dark rooms before officers enter.But let’s get back to the stun gun, because no one’s worried about the police owning drones that carry flashlights. Is it really a good idea to weaponize drones? Opinions are split, naturally.Some see it as a slippery slope, paving the way for drones equipped with actual guns. They may also point to studies that show stun gun use contributing to 510 deaths since 2001. Others say that Taser’s autonomous drone offers safety benefits for everyone — the public, police officers, and the criminals they’re pursuing. Letting a drone fly into a room, locate, and stun an armed suspect definitely sounds a lot safer than, say, officers bursting in with their weapons drawn.

Porto boss My players are not good enough for the club

first_imgPorto manager Sérgio Conceição did not hold back on what he thought of his own players following their 2-1 defeat to Portimonense in a pre-season friendly on TuesdayThe Primeira Liga champions went two goals down before the break to condemn them to their first defeat of the preseason, despite André Pereira scoring a goal later on.While one could argue that Portimonense are much further ahead in their preparations for the new season, Conceição was not going to bail his players out with any excuses and sent Porto president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa a clear message through the media afterwards.“We need solutions,” said Conceição, according to the Record.“The goals conceded arose from mistakes that cannot happen, it has to do with the work of the defensive line, in which we had some difficulties, the result was a bit misleading at half-time, then I made a scramble, we scored and we could have scored more.”“I have half a dozen players who are not good enough to play for Porto. It’s plain for everybody to see. I ended the match with a defensive line consisting of Oleg, who plays for the B team, Mikel, Diogo Leite, who is also with the B team, and Janko”,“There are a lot of things we have to do, there are half a dozen players who cannot play for FC Porto. Mikel, Leite who came from the B team and Janko, then Ewerton, Bruno Costa, André Pereira … These are, kids who came from team B or borrowed. ”He added: “This is the truth and I can not hide it.”Europa League draw groups G and H George Patchias – August 30, 2019 Europa League groups G and H are a who is who of previous winners.UEFA.com confirmed that Europa League group G consists of, Porto, Young…??#FCPorto #PSCFCP #FCPortopreSeason pic.twitter.com/zJRPbIPIOn— FC Porto (@FCPorto) July 17, 2018And the 43-year-old has already made his feeling clear to the board.“We have to go looking for solutions, I told the management, I already talked to the president,” said Conceição.The coach’s outburst comes after Porto made €60m from sales this summer in the departures of Diogo Dalot, Miguel Layún, Iván Marcano and Ricardo Pereira.And Porto have only added €14m in purchasing new players with just three weeks remaining until they begin their title defence in a home game against Chaves on August 12.last_img read more

Big Victory TCI Sports gets unanimous support for membership

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, February 14, 2017 – The Turks and Caicos is another step closer to having Olympic status, though admittedly there are still many more steps to go… but this time our islands happily settle for a regional acknowledgement that gives TCI athletes the opportunity to compete under the Turks and Caicos flag.The Ministry of Sports today made the announcement that TCI athletes are now eligible to compete in the games of the Central American and Caribbean Sports Organization (CACSO), one of the major regional sporting events associated with the Olympic movement.The country’s sports Director, Judith Robison calls it a big victory for the islands and it enables our athletes to stay tied to their homeland while being a British overseas territory.   “This is a big victory for us because previously our athletes were not eligible to compete due to the fact that TCI does not have Olympic Nation status. However, the vote now makes it possible for us to compete at a very high regional level with other aspiring Olympians, and motivates us to continue pushing and knocking on doors until we acquire our goal as an Olympic body.” This feat was not accomplished due to any one initiative, as a matter of fact because the country has so many active sporting bodies tied to international federations, the nod of approval was given. The report from the Ministry says that the Turks and Caicos qualified with Athletics, Football, Basketball, Sailing, Rugby, Swimming, Cycling, Softball, Tennis and Volleyball.Now, the country prepares for the CACSO Games in August in Colombia.   The decision was made at the 49th General Assembly of CACSO, where delegates voted unanimously to make Turks & Caicos Islands an Associate Member.#MagneticMediaNews Recommended for you The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Related Items:#magneticmedianewslast_img read more

How One Association Publisher Went WebOnly

first_imgCHICAGO—Association publishers are facing six key elements that are changing their roles as publishers, according to Rebecca Rolfes, executive vice president of new business development at Imagination Publishing, who spoke here today at the Society of National Association Publications conference.They include: nichification (“people want more and more of less and less”), speed (“associations are not noted for their speed or flexibility”), peer-to-peer (“historically, associations have controlled the message—now you are no longer in control”), data (“search engines are struggling with the amount of data out there and one-to-one databases are key”), and sophisticated governance (“more boards are based on competence rather than tenure”). Imagination client IPC is an association serving the global electronics market, which in recent years grew globally but fell apart in the U.S. With 2,600 global members spread throughout the supply chain, IPC felt its print products, including a magazine called Review, weren’t connecting with the right audience—and with 7,000 subscribers, the association felt selling advertising wasn’t worth the trouble.In 2007, Imagination suggested a radical step: cease publication of the print product and go Web-only. “The magazine wasn’t getting something and it was seen as just more work,” said Rolfes. “IPC wanted to be seen as a thought-leader in this space, not just a publisher of standards.” The first step was an overhaul of the Web site by placing content at the top of the site. “Previously, there had been bad use of vertical space, there was far too much valuable information too far down the page,” said Rolfes. Current content is open to anyone but archives are available only to members.The site now produces two 600- to 800-word features per week, as well as a podcast and a slideshow each month. A quarterly e-blast promotes rich media features in English and Chinese. While that doesn’t sound like much to most publishers ramping up their Web sites, it appeals to the international crowd. IPC.org produces its content in English, and with the help of a China-based office, offers full translation into Mandarin.The site also offers two “best of list serve” each month. “Think of list serve as a baby social network,” said Rolfes. “Social media marketing is one of the best things you can do for SEO.”IPC hasn’t abandoned print entirely, and now publishes an annual aimed at the leadership of it members. In July, the association launched a German-language version.Since the relaunch, IPC.org has seen the number of visitors grow by 43 percent while the number of individual visits has doubled. Visit duration is up 15 percent to more than 11 minutes per session, and the site has generated more than 10,000 rich media downloads.last_img read more
