The Police has got powers to use mild force for the maintenance of law and order. However, what is happening in the society is that people gather in group to overpower the Police, abuse and attack him while doing his statutory duty. Many cases of attacks on Police are reported in the newspapers and shown in the visual media.”The Madras High Court on Monday directed the State Government to file a “proper reply” to the queries raised by the Court with regard to prevalence of Goonda Raj in the state. The Division Bench comprising Justice N. Kirubakaran and Justice VM Velumani particularly sought to know from the Government why it had not come out with a new Act to eliminate ‘rowdy gangs’, in suit with the Governments of Maharashtra and Karnataka. The Court insisted that rowdy gangs are active in Tamil Nadu for more than 25 years and thus the State cannot claim there is no necessity for an enactment like Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act, 1999. It noted that a high number of cases are registered in Tamil Nadu by the National Investigation Agency and more number of terror activities are carried out in the State. The State topped in the number of ISI sympathizers arrested from across the country and the illegal activities carried out by anti-social elements. It further noted that in Tamil Nadu, Goondas have got proximity with Police, political leaders and communal leaders. In fact, almost all the political parties have them as office bearers and a few of the MLAs and MPs are with criminal background. Thus batting for enactment of a new Act like Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act, 1999 and The Karnataka Control of Organised Crimes Act, 2000 in Tamil Nadu the Court said, “If such an Act is brought into force it will give more power to the Police to deal with gangsters and antisocial elements effectively in the interest of the society.” The above remarks were made during hearing of a habeas corpus petition seeking release of a ‘rowdy’ accused of murder of a policeman, constable P. Subramanian, by throwing a bomb at him during police chase. In its strongly worded order, the Division Bench criticized the local political leaders/ parties and Human rights activists and organizations, for remaining tight-lipped on the of “brutal murder” of the constable. “Human rights activists and organizations who used to make hue and cry and condemn police action against criminals as violation of human rights, are keeping quiet. Probably, in their perspective, the policemen are not human beings and there is no violation of rights if police suffer or die at the hands of criminals. It is very disheartening to note that the representatives of people, ie., persons who claim to be political leaders, have neither condemned the said incident nor offered condolence for the death of the young policeman to the bereaved family,” the Court observed. The Court proceeded to contemplate the reason behind such “guarded silence” and wondered if the same is due to their “political strategy based on communal considerations in the interest of their political fortunes.” The Court noted that when the 2 years old Sujith Wilson fell into a borewell dug by his own father last year and ultimately died, all the political parties lined up and paid lakhs of rupees to the father of the child. However, the same yardstick is not applied by the political leaders in the present case. “This kind of attitude of political parties including ruling party would demoralize the police force and they will not have any confidence to discharge their duties without fear and they should also have confidence that their family will be looked after not only by the Government but also by the political parties and the representatives of the people, in case, any unfortunate eventuality happens to them,” it said. Upset by the demise of a young policeman, “who laid down his precious life for the sake of the society leaving behind his young wife who is two months pregnant and a 10 month old child in lurch”, the Court remarked, “If a policeman is attacked, the Society is not safe.” The Court strongly deprecated the practice of gathering of crowds that attempt to “overpower” the Police and abuse and attack them during discharge of their statutory duty.

NEWS SCAN: Flu update, pandemic guidance for cleaning vehicles, meningitis in India, Salmonella in sprouts

first_imgMar 13, 2009Flu called widespread in 35 statesThirty-five US states reported widespread influenza activity in the first week of March, four more than a week earlier, and four of nine regions had an increase in medical visits for flu-like illnesses, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today. However, the agency said the overall level of flu activity was about the same as in the previous week. Influenza A/H1N1 viruses continued to predominate, although the proportion of influenza B viruses increased. Most H1N1 viruses tested continued to show resistance to oseltamivir (Tamiflu) but remained sensitive to other flu drugs. The CDC said five more flu-related deaths of children were reported, in Illinois, New York, Texas, and Utah, bringing the season total to 26. The percentage of all deaths attributed to pneumonia and flu remained below the epidemic threshold.[Mar 13 CDC flu update]HHS offers pandemic guidance for cleaning transit vehiclesThe US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has released seven guidance documents on cleaning of transportation vehicles and facilities during an influenza pandemic. The recommendations cover trucks, aircraft, passenger and cargo ships, transit stations, passenger rail cars, port-of-entry detention facilities, and ambulances. The aircraft guidance, for example, spells out which parts of the airplane should be cleaned and disinfected after a passenger has arrived in the United States with a potential case of pandemic flu.[HHS guidance]CDC warns travelers of meningitis outbreak in IndiaThe northeastern Indian states of Tripura, Meghalaya, and Mizoram are dealing with a bacterial meningitis outbreak, making vaccination important for travelers planning to visit the areas, the CDC said this week. The three states have had 230 deaths and 2,000 possible cases of meningitis recently, the CDC said on Mar 10. The states are in the part of India bordered by Bangladesh on the west and Myanmar on the east. Travelers bound for the region should receive a meningococcal vaccine at least 10 days before departure, if possible, the agency said.Salmonella outbreak linked to sprouts approaches 100 casesA five-state Salmonella Saintpaul outbreak that surfaced in Nebraska and is believed to be related to sprouts is approaching 100 cases, recent news reports and health department statements indicate. An Associated Press (AP) report published yesterday cited 45 cases in Nebraska, 21 in Iowa, and at least 5 each in Kansas and South Dakota. The South Dakota Department of Health [SDDH] yesterday reported 24 probable cases in addition to 5 confirmed ones reported earlier. Cases in Missouri have also been mentioned, but the number is unclear. An epidemiologic investigation has linked the outbreak to sprouts, but tests have not yet confirmed them as the source. SunSprout Enterprises of Omaha has recalled three kinds of sprouts as a precaution.[Mar 12 SDDH statement]last_img read more

Pearltrees: A Design Interface for Remapping the Web

first_img Rather than looking at the web as a series of linear pages, this service lets us build tree graphs of connecting arguments, share them and then break them at any time. Using a browser bookmarking tool, we can add and connect related pearls or ideas, place them within other pearls or start a new pearl tree (or train of thought). Rather than displaying a list of items, your pearls connect to your profile. You are literally the center of the universe and your thoughts follow you wherever you go. Naturally, as a newly anointed God of information, other great thinkers will gravitate towards you. Shared pearls connect you to others and allow you to view their collections. From here you can choose your favorite content and omit the noise. From here you can email your pearls, embed them in your blog or broadcast them to Twitter and Facebook. The Future of Touch InterfacesGiven the unique user interface of Pearltrees, Lamothe expects that the company will roll out feature releases and enhancements on an ongoing basis. Says the CEO, “Once we’ve launched the web interface, the potential of a touch product will be very exciting.” At this point, I almost fell out of my chair thinking about the possibilities. Using Pearltrees in conjunction with a touch interface would be extremely practical. Rather than swiping down long lists of links to find articles, images or videos, users could tap on their desired pearl and follow the connectors to the information they wanted. Not only would this greatly improve the research experience, but it could also change device design. For some reason, many touch interfaces mimic the experience of the first personal computers. We are offered a series of boxes from which to start our applications with little room for reorganization or prioritization. The Pearltrees model may prove to be the most efficient way to navigate period.

Pearltrees is such a product. The French site offers us a new way to explore and contextualize the web. In what looks like a mind map structure, users collect “pearls” (links to articles, videos and web pages) and drag and drop them to form a body of knowledge that folds and expands upon itself. In an interview with Pearltrees CEO Patrice Lamothe, ReadWriteWeb found that company already has a loyal user base including our friends at ReadWriteFrance.Said Lamothe, “We wanted a type of game play that was playful to use and map the web…and the fact that you can group and ungroup content easily means that you can re-catalogue it and keep it current.” Related Posts Tags:#start#startups A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

How Does the Cloud Affect Podcasting?

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting I am moderating a discussion about podcasting this morning at the Webvisions conference here in Portland, Oregon. My interest in podcasting these days centers around how cloud computing is affecting the medium, so I thought it would be fun to explore the issue with the podcasters assembled for the event.But, first, how about you? How is podcasting being affected by the advent of cloud computing? I will be taking questions from the online audience. To ask a question, please comment here or use the tag #wv2010. You may also direct questions to the Twitter account: @podcasthotel.So, what are the factors in the cloud that affect podcasting? Here are a few top-level views.CollaborationServices allow for deeper levels of collaboration on everything from commenting to the actual production of a show. Wikis, distributed social networks and even production tools provide a level of collaboration in the cloud that did not really exist back in the early days.For example, GarageBand has a number of Web counterparts such as Ohm Studio. Ohm is designed for music production but as Podcasting News points out, it can easily be used to develop podcasts, too. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#cloud#cloud computing Related Posts StorageThe cloud provides a number of options for storing media. Cloud services can sync files, keeping them at minimal cost. This serves as one way to keep costs down.Amazon, for instance, offers, CloudFront. From Amazon:Amazon CloudFront delivers your static and streaming content using a global network of edge locations. Requests for your objects are automatically routed to the nearest edge location, so content is delivered with the best possible performance. Amazon CloudFront works seamlessly with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) which durably stores the original, definitive versions of your files. Like other Amazon Web Services, there are no contracts or monthly commitments for using Amazon CloudFront – you pay only for as much or as little content as you actually deliver through the service.Dynamic RangeAs Josh Bancroft says, it’s the ability to use media anywhere, any time on any device. And that provides flexibility and a greater dynamic range of hardware capabilities.That means Josh can justify a 17-inch MacBook Pro he keep at his house but can also access any media from his iPad or iPhone. Where before, in a device-centric world of storage, he would have had to compromise on what gave him more portability.Podcasting is going through some interesting changes. The business is more viable, which is due in part to the lower costs and greater distribution that social networking provides. alex williams 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Sensex snaps 4day winning streak drops 180 points

first_imgMumbai: Breaking its four-day rising streak, the Sensex dropped about 180 points Wednesday on profit booking and forecast of below-normal monsoon this year. Despite a strong rally in global equities, Indian market failed to sustain at lifetime highs led by losses in oil and gas, telecom, metal and healthcare stocks. After swinging nearly 450 points, the 30-share Sensex settled 179.53 points, or 0.46 per cent lower at 38,877.12. The broader NSE Nifty too pared early gains and ended 69.25 points, or 0.59 per cent, down at 11,643.95. Benchmark indices gave up all the early gains and ended in red after Skymet predicted below normal monsoon for this year, said Sunil Sharma, Chief Investment Officer, Sanctum Wealth Management. “This news comes just a day before RBI is expected to cut rates by 25 bps and adopt a pro-growth stance. However, expectation of poor rainfall and already slow economic growth alongside subdued inflation may pressurise RBI to go for a higher rate cut, thus surprising the street positively,” Sharma added. The RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) is holding a three-day meeting between April 2 – 4 for the first policy statement for 2019-20. SBI was the biggest loser in the Sensex pack, shedding 2.40 per cent, followed by Yes Bank, Bharti Airtel, L&T, Sun Pharma, M&M, ICICI Bank, ONGC, RIL, Asian Paints, Vedanta and HUL, which lost up to 2.37 per cent. On the other hand, Maruti, HCL Tech, HDFC, Tata Steel, PowerGrid, Hero MotoCorp and TCS ended with gains of up to 2.78 per cent. Sectorally, the BSE oil and gas, telecom, capital goods, energy and healthcare indices fell up to 2.06 per cent. Broader indices too ended in the red, with the BSE Midcap and Smallcap slipping up to 0.87 per cent. Meanwhile, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) remained net buyers in the capital markets, putting in Rs 543.36 crore Tuesday, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) sold equities to the tune of Rs 437.70 crore, provisional data available with stock exchanges showed.last_img read more
