Singh sought replies from the Deputy Commissioner (DC) and the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) on Sayeed Ahmed Khan’s petition and scheduled the matter for further hearing on Apr 26 with a batch of other similar matters.The plea cited the Delhi Government’s Assistance Scheme for the Help of Delhi Riot Victims formulated by the AAP-led Delhi Government, according to which, the Petitioner claimed to be qualifying for Rs. 5 lakh as permanent compensation and Rs. 50,000 as interim compensation. The petitioner stated that the compensation was necessary to get families of riots victims back on their feet in the present time.Praying for a “holistic compensation”, the plea states that till now it had infact seemed that instead of making efforts for the rehabilitation of the victims, the respondent authorities had infact perpetuated more grief and distress amongst them, and said that the compensation was necessary as through it, “the government tries to rectify its mistakes and makes an honest effort to put the victims of violence back to their previous positions, as they would have been before the violence.”The scheme mandates Rs. 5 lakhs in toto for uninsured commercial units.Khan was allegedly informed of the damage to his shop on Feb 25 last year, on a call from his friend, Arvind, who also seemed to have cautioned Khan from coming down to Shiv Vihar as the area was volatile and “dangerous for the Muslim community”, according to the plea.The petitioner has also sought court’s direction to the Delhi government to modify the present Government Assistance Scheme for the Delhi Riot Victims and to take into consideration the looting, theft and vandalism of residential and commercial places during the riot.

Instagram Takeover | Katie Cahn

first_imgThis month’s Instagram Takeover features Boone, North Carolina-based fly fisher Katie Cahn. You might recognize Katie from the March issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors where she is featured prominently. She spends much of her time with a fly rod in hand, combing the rivers and streams of Western North Carolina in search of wily brook, rainbow and brown trout. Lucky for us she documents her adventures on Instagram.Follow along as we feature some of Katie’s favorite Instagram posts this week, and get to know the girl behind the March cover a little better with our Q & A below the photos.Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 9.23.49 AM“There’s so much beauty in the world, you just have to find it. I would start in Western North Carolina.”Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 10.09.49 AM“Drying off.”Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 10.26.20 AM“Upstream.”Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 10.12.57 AM“Easing my soul. One rainbow at a time.”Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 10.33.04 AM“What you can’t see in this photo is the bald eagle that graced me with its presence or the kingfishers and pileated woodpeckers that tolerated my presence. Or the big brown I had on that literally spit the fly out into my face.”Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 10.32.21 AM“Is it fall yet?”[divider]Q & A with Katie[/divider]BRO: How did you get into fly fishing?KC: I had always “fished,” but never practiced the art of angling.  I started dating a guy who fly fished and this was at the time I was going to school at WCU. For three years I lived 50 yards from the Tuckasegee River.  Within that time, I spent many study breaks at the river fly fishing. During those years I got to know the Tuckasegee, Nantahala and a few other undisclosed streams pretty well. BRO: Do you have a favorite fly?KC: Yeah, it’s that green, red, and yellow sparkly one with the bead head in my fly box that I haven’t lost yet.  I’m kidding, but really, my favorite way to fish is with dry flies. There’s nothing like having a trout come up to the surface for a fly.  It takes my breath away. BRO: Where do you do most of your fishing?KC: I fish mainly upstream in tight rhododendron and mountain laurel thickets where people tend to not go. I try to stay away from crowds. When I fish, I’m looking for solitude. There’s nothing worse than having some person walk up on your fishing hole, and I think any angler would agree to that. BRO: Got a favorite fish story you’d like to share?KC: One story that comes to mind is a time I was fishing on the Tuck. I was in one of my secret spots and this amazing hatch was going off. There were mayflies everywhere. This was in July of last year so the temperature of the water was stressing the fish. I fought this big, beautiful, wild rainbow for what felt like 10 minutes. When I finally netted it I could tell it was spent. It took about 3 minutes to revive, but when it finally got the strength to swim away from my hands, my heart melted. I share this story because there were no photos from that day, it was just me and the essence of nature.BRO: If you could choose only one river to fish for the rest of your life what would it be?KC: This is a hard one. Each river I fish has so many different qualities, but the one that does come to mind, I wouldn’t tell you the name of it (wink wink).BRO: If you could fish anywhere in the world for one day where would it be?KC: Patagonia, baby! BRO: One piece of fly fishing gear you wouldn’t head into the woods without…KC: I wouldn’t go fly fishing without my hemostats. Some people might say their felt soul boots or their favorite rod and reel, but for me, being able to quickly crush a barb or gently release a hook from a trout’s mouth is crucial.[divider]Related Articles[/divider]last_img read more

H1N1 FLU BREAKING NEWS: Second wave in China?, on-campus cases multiply, vaccination in Britain, vaccine protest in Germany

first_imgChina showing signs of second pandemic flu waveChina appears to be entering its second wave of the novel H1N1 pandemic, said an epidemiologist at the country’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention who was quoted yesterday in China Daily. Cases are increasing rapidly, and the virus is spreading to small and medium-sized cities. China has had 26,300 known cases but just two deaths, the story said. The World Health Organization reported last week that the seasonal H3N2 flu virus was co-circulating in China with the pandemic H1N1 strain. 20 China Daily storyFlu cases increase on US campusesFlu-like illnesses on college campuses rose modestly last week, with schools in the mid Atlantic region reporting increases, while those in the Midwest, Rocky Mountains, and Southwest still cited robust activity, the American College Health Association (ACHA) said today. The report for the week ending Oct 16 says infections may have already peaked in the Southeast and Northeast. The incidence of flu-like illnesses on member campuses was 20.9 per 10,000 students, 9% higher than a week earlier.Oct 21 ACHA weekly surveillance reportH1N1 vaccinations begin in BritainBritain today became the latest European country to roll out nationwide shots against H1N1 flu, beginning vaccination of front-line health care workers and high-risk hospital patients. High-risk patients in the community will begin receiving shots Oct 26, Reuters reported. Other European Union countries have already begun campaigns, including France, Italy and Sweden, with Germany expected to begin Oct. 26. 21 Reuters reportGerman vaccine roll-out sparks protestA press outcry and political objections are following news that Germany’s H1N1 vaccination campaign plans to use two different formulas: Baxter’s cell culture-based Celvapan for politicians and essential workers and GlaxoSmithKline’s egg-based, adjuvanted Pandemrix for the general public. To defuse the protest, Chancellor Angela Merkel has agreed to receive the GSK vaccine from her private doctor, Agence France Press reported. The story said Celvapan has fewer side effects than Pandemrix.H1N1 found in Japanese swine herdPooled samples from 10 pigs on a 1,000-head swine farm near Osaka, Japan, were positive for H1N1 flu during routine surveillance, according to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). None of the pigs died or showed signs of illness. The farm, which raises pigs from birth to slaughter age, is under limited movement control. The finding marks the first identification of H1N1 flu in swine in Japan.Oct 21 OIE reportArgentinean report cites high rate of lung disease in H1N1 casesAn unexpectedly high rate of lower respiratory disease (8%, 166 of 2,135 patients) was found in adults with flu-like illness who were treated at a tertiary hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the H1N1 outbreak in June and July, says a report in Emerging Infectious Diseases. Although other pathogens were not ruled out, the authors say the finding suggests that “a unique pattern of virulence, pulmonary tropism, or both” may characterize 2009 H1N1 cases.

Cops seen with teacher likely to be sacked – senior official

first_imgKescia Branche’s murderAs the Guyana Police Force digs deeper into the brutal murder of high school teacher Kescia Branche, the two cops who were initially implicated in the crime are to be sanctioned and likely to be sent home.Dead: Kescia BrancheFollowing internal investigations, departmental charges were filed against the two Police constables who were placed under close arrest during the early stages of the murder probes surrounding the incidents which led to the death of the 22-year-old Richard Ishmael Secondary School teacher.This is according to a release issued by the Guyana Police Force on Thursday, which detailed that the two ranks were found to be in breach of the Police Discipline Act.Based on Chapter 17:01 of the said legislation, the implicated ranks are said to be guilty of four offences. These offences are: neglect of duty; consuming intoxicating liquor while on duty; improper entrance to licensed premises; and acting in a manner likely to bring discredit on the reputation of the Force.However, while speaking to the Guyana Times on Friday, a high-ranking official of the GFP hinted that given that the ranks were at the centre of the murder of a civilian, they are likely to be sacked after the departmental charges are instituted.This is as the two Police constables were caught on camera leaving the Blue Martini Night Club in the company of the 22-year-old teacher just hours before she was found in a battered and unconscious state on Princes Street, Georgetown.Moreover, the three were shortly after sighted at a popular food outlet on Mandela Avenue, from which one of the cops claimed the now dead woman had left with a taxi, but instead she went missing.Branche succumbed to injuries while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital after she was found.As such, the implicated duo, along with two other ranks of the GPF, were taken into custody, but were later released.Nevertheless, Acting Crime Chief Paul Williams, earlier this month, told the media that the Force continues to seek legal advice in regard to alleged involved of the two Police officers in the murder of the school teacher.While positing that the ranks may not have been guilty of murder, Williams contended that they were nevertheless in breach of regulations of the Force.It was then that he assured that actions would be taken based on the findings of the investigation in relations to the involvement of the two ranks.Meanwhile, taxi driver 47-year-old Matthew Munroe of Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara (EBD) was earlier this month taken into custody and charged for the murder of Branche.His vehicle was impounded at the Brickdam Police Station after he fled the country just after the injured teacher was picked up off the streets.A post mortem examination conducted on the body of the woman revealed that Branche died as a result of blunt trauma to the head and haemorrhage.last_img read more

Jose Mourinho questions players’ ‘quality’ after 3-1 defeat at West Ham

first_img deals Mourinho believes the first result affected the second and also apportioned some blame to officials’ decisions in both matches.“I think a team that comes with that mental fragility of the bad results and after five minutes is losing 1-0 is not the best way to start,” the 55-year-old told BT Sport in his post-match interview.“A goal offside [from Felipe Anderson], a goal last Tuesday [against Derby] which with VAR would not be a goal.“Then in the first half we have a reaction, we have a good reaction, but an own goal makes 2-0.“We are not aggressive and intense enough to close that shot and then we are losing 2-0 with an offside goal and an own goal.“Second half we took a little bit of time to react and then we did. We score 2-1 and, instead of the linesman’s mistake, it’s the referee’s mistake… A foul on Marcus Rashford… Pablo Zabaleta had no intent to play the ball.“The third goal kills mentally the team.” silverware Matic one of two players for sale with ‘two Premier League clubs’ interested targets IN DEMAND 2 Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January gameday cracker Latest Manchester United News Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Goals from Felipe Anderson, Victor Lindelof (og) and Marko Arnautovic cancelled out Marcus Rashford’s strike Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?

Jose Mourinho’s team selection raised eyebrows before the match had even kicked off, as it featured 21-year-old midfielder Scott McTominay as a centre-back.Alexis Sanchez was left out completely while Juan Mata, Fred and Marcus Rashford started on the bench.When asked about McTominay, Mourinho replied: “He was the best [centre-back]. He had a fantastic attitude, he’s aggressive, he’s brave… Really happy with the job the kid did.”On his lack of attacking options, the Portuguese stated: “For many months people are asking for Martial, Martial, Martial.“For many months people are saying Alexis Sanchez is not playing well enough.“So this week it was time to agree and to say let’s give a chance to Martial and let’s leave Alexis out.” Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland REVEALED Solskjaer gives Pogba fitness update and calls him world’s best all-round midfielder FAREWELL Jose Mourinho’s frustrations were evident during the match boost In conclusion, Mourinho said that while he was happy with his players’ general attitudes, there is still plenty to be desired in terms of quality and mental approach to tough tackles.“I have no complaints with the players’ attitude,” he added.“I can have complaints with some quality, I can have some complaints with some mental approach in certain duels….
