Luis Suarez returns home to a hero’s welcome in Uruguay

first_imgLuis Suarez was handed a heavy ban from FIFA after his biting incident in the FIFA World Cup Luis Suarez flew home to Uruguay on Friday after being thrown out of the World Cup and banned from soccer for four months for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini, who criticized the punishment as “excessive”.Liverpool striker Suarez was met by outraged President Jose Mujica when he landed at a military base next to Uruguay’s main airport before dawn, an air force spokesman said.Mujica had joined hundreds of fans who gathered at the airport on Thursday night to show their support for Suarez but they left after a few hours when it became clear he had not yet left Brazil.After his arrival on Friday, Suarez, his wife and other family members were driven to a home he has in the small coastal town of Solymar and the player appeared keen on maintaining a low profile. The 27-year-old star striker has not publicly spoken since soccer’s world governing body FIFA ruled on Thursday that he cannot play in Uruguay’s next nine competitive matches and suspended him from all soccer-related activity for four months.Excessive, says ChielliniThe ban has sparked fury in his homeland and even Chiellini, whose shoulder Suarez sank his teeth into, came out on Friday and said he felt no anger towards the Uruguayan. “Now inside me there’s no feelings of joy, revenge or anger against Suarez for an incident that happened on the pitch and that’s done,” the Juventus centre back said in a statement on his website.advertisement”At the moment my only thought is for Luis and his family, because they will face a very difficult period. I have always considered unequivocal the disciplinary interventions by the competent bodies, but at the same time I believe that the proposed formula is excessive,” Chiellini added.The punishment immediately ended Suarez’s involvement in the World Cup, with Uruguay due to face an in-form Colombia in a round of 16 tie on Saturday. “He is totally distraught. He never thought the punishment would be so severe,” said Alejandro Balbi, a member of the Uruguayan Football Association’s board and Suarez’s lawyer.FIFA ruled that Suarez bit Chiellini during Uruguay’s final group match on Tuesday, as his side knocked Italy out of the tournament with a 1-0 victory. Suarez’s ban is the longest ever imposed at a World Cup. It means he is unlikely to appear in competitive matches for his country until 2016 and he will also miss the first two months of the Premier League season in England.Although it was the third time Suarez has been banned for biting, his team mates and most Uruguayans jumped to defend him, believing the punishment was excessive. “There are different standards. That’s what infuriates and hurts us most,” Mujica said on Thursday night in an appearance on a TV show hosted by former Argentine star Diego Maradona, who also said FIFA had over-reacted.last_img read more

Attorneys Urged to Utilise Sentence Reduction Day Initiative

first_imgStory Highlights Queen’s Counsel, Valerie Neita-Robertson, is encouraging fellow attorneys to utilise the Supreme Court’s Sentence Reduction Day initiative, noting that the reduction of case backlog is favourable to all stakeholders in the justice sector. The Sentence Reduction Day programme is being implemented by the Criminal Case Management Steering Committee, which has as its mandate the implementation of policies and strategies that are geared towards the administration of justice in a timely manner in all the courts. The Sentence Reduction Day initiative provides an opportunity for accused persons to enter a guilty plea and benefit from a maximum of up to 50 per cent reduction in their sentence, according to the provisions of the Criminal Justice Administration Amendment Act, 2015. Queen’s Counsel, Valerie Neita-Robertson, is encouraging fellow attorneys to utilise the Supreme Court’s Sentence Reduction Day initiative, noting that the reduction of case backlog is favourable to all stakeholders in the justice sector.“The backlog is not beneficial to any side; defence attorneys are suffering. When you have a case dragging on for 10 years, there is no amount of money to be paid to you to account for that. So, if you can get rid of it early while doing what is in the best interest of your client, then the system, I think, will begin to work a little better,” she said.The second instalment of the initiative will be available on Thursday, October 19, at the Home Circuit and Gun Court Division of Kingston and St. Andrew and on Friday, October 20, at the St. Catherine Circuit Court.The Sentence Reduction Day initiative provides an opportunity for accused persons to enter a guilty plea and benefit from a maximum of up to 50 per cent reduction in their sentence, according to the provisions of the Criminal Justice Administration Amendment Act, 2015.Mrs. Neita-Robertson, in an interview with JIS News, said it is the obligation of all defence attorneys to facilitate an efficient system in the best interest of justice.“The defence attorney does what is in the best interest of his or her client. If the client is guilty and tells you he is guilty, having indicated that this is his wish, I would really encourage all attorneys [to utilise the Sentence Reduction Days],” she said.She also urged young attorneys to seek assistance and support from senior counsel, if needed, in order to take advantage of the provisions under the programme.Mrs. Neita-Robertson further noted that she personally used the initiative in its initial instalment on May 22 this year, from which her clients benefited significantly.She added that it is also valuable that pleading guilty on the day carries no penalty for the accused, noting that the attorney can get a sentencing indication from the judge ahead of the proceedings.“Persons in the past Sentence Reduction Day have gotten suspended sentences, because when you take away time served, it comes down to zero; but the accused would still have to pay a penalty for breaking the law, such as probation or suspended sentence,” she said.For her part, Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Andrea Martin-Swaby, said that in addition to the benefit of a reduced case load to the prosecution, victims, complainants and witnesses also benefit from the Sentence Reduction Day initiative.“Witnesses, complainants and victims benefit by not having to repeatedly relive or revisit the unpleasant circumstances of the case in a trial… and are, therefore, usually happy to not have to go through the process,” she said.Mrs. Martin-Swaby further noted that a reduced case load also frees up the justice system to adequately handle cases that require the trial process and the use of a jury.The Sentence Reduction Day programme is being implemented by the Criminal Case Management Steering Committee, which has as its mandate the implementation of policies and strategies that are geared towards the administration of justice in a timely manner in all the courts.last_img read more

Learn 2 Fish Program is for Children and Families

first_imgAll ages can benefit from expanded Learn 2 Fish programs being offered this spring around the province. For the first time, a community event for adults and children is being offered in each recreational fishing area. Learn 2 Fish teaches the basics of sportfishing, along with ethics and environmental stewardship. “Learn 2 Fish is one of our department’s most popular programs, reflecting the overall interest in sportfishing,” said Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell. “These sessions help to interest younger Nova Scotians in angling and can plant the seeds for a lifelong love of the outdoors that will ensure sportfishing continues to benefit the economy of our rural communities.” The free community sessions are organized by staff of the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture or volunteers from local sportfishing organizations. Participants will be shown how to assemble basic tackle, casting with both open and closed-face reels and proper handling for catch-and-release. They will be able to keep their fish if they choose. All ages are welcome and early arrival is recommended as participation is on a first come, first served basis. Children will need to be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian. This initiative builds on the success of Learn 2 Fish for school-aged groups. More than 15,000 youth have gained introductory angling skills since the program began in 2006. The program is for youth from grades 4 to high school, and includes 4-H Clubs, scouts and guides and others. Volunteers and staff will be running these sessions in May and June, based on strong enrolment from February. The Learn 2 Fish program is supported by the three provincial hatcheries, which stock the lake or pond with trout so that youth are more likely to catch a fish. If you cannot make it to a community Learn 2 Fish session, you can always take your family fishing at a stocked lake. Check out for a weekly update. Community Learn 2 Fish Sessions are scheduled for: South Ohio, Yarmouth County, a private pond at 533 Highway #340, on May 8, from 6 to 8 p.m. Upper Tantallon, Halifax Regional Municipality, Jerry Lawrence Park, 4775 St. Margarets Bay Rd, May 27, from noon to 2 p.m. with partner Five Bridges Heritage Trust St. Croix, Hants Co., St. Croix Pond, Ball Park Road, June 2, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with partner Hants West Wildlife Association Glace Bay, Cape Breton Regional Municipality, #20 Dam, John Bernard Croak Memorial Park, 53 Beacon St., June 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. with partner Port Morien Wildlife Association Truro, Kiwanis Pond, 32 Juniper St., June 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. Trenton, Trenton Park, 119 Park Rd., June 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. For more details, call 902-485-7021.last_img read more

Assam woman commits suicide ahead of NRC list

first_imgGuwahati: A woman in Assam’s Sonitpur district on Saturday committed suicide shortly before the state’s final National Register of Citizens (NRC) list was released. The incident took place at No 1 Dolabari village, 4 km from Tezpur town. Residents of the village said the victim, Shayera Begun, jumped in a well in the backyard of her house. “She was tensed about inclusion of her name in the NRC,” said some of the villagers, adding that she thought non-inclusion would land the victim and her family in detention centres. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ But Sonitpur Superintendent of Police Kumar Sanjit Krishna dismissed the claim, saying: “The woman was mentally ill. We were told that she jumped into the well and committed suicide. Names of all the members of the family were included in the NRC.” The final list was published on Saturday morning.

Saskatchewan proposes lawsuits should be allowed if intimate images shared

first_imgREGINA – Saskatchewan Justice Minister Don Morgan has introduced a bill that would allow people to sue for compensation if their intimate images have been shared without their permission.A victim would be able to sue in small-claims court where they are claiming damages less than $30,000 and would not have to wait for criminal charges to be laid.Morgan said he’s particularly concerned about how the sharing of intimate images is affecting young people.“Social media is one of those things that’s incredibly pervasive. It follows young people home. It follows them into their bedrooms late at night,” Morgan said Tuesday at the legislature in Regina.“This is a protection that we want to have so that they will have a disincentive for that type of conduct.”The government said it is difficult to rely on the Criminal Code to deter cyberbullying through unauthorized sharing of intimate images because the burden of proof is so high.The proposed legislation would shift the onus of proof to the person that circulated the image by requiring them to show that they had received consent.Saskatchewan is the first province to take such a step, said Morgan.“My advice to somebody would be don’t post something unless you’re absolutely certain that you’ve got the consent from the person’s that in it.”Interim NDP Leader Nicole Sarauer said the Opposition just got the legislation Tuesday and needs time to review it.However, Sarauer said it is time to modernize the law in Saskatchewan to deal with the serious problem.“It’s important because the civil burden of proof is much lower than the criminal burden of proof, that there is that avenue for individuals who are victims of this situation to have an avenue of repercussions outside of the criminal court,” she said.Shannon Lea of the No Touchy Campaign in Saskatchewan said the legislation could force someone to think twice about trying to exact revenge on the internet.“I think it’s huge for people, even in intimate relationships, who have had this happen to them to be able to do something about it instead of sit back and continue to be victimized,” Lea told radio station CKRM.The No Touchy Campaign aims to raise public awareness of the extent of sexual assault in Canada.last_img read more

Pledging ongoing UN support during visit to cyclonehit areas Guterres praises resilience

Mr. Guterres is in Mozambique to take stock of the recovery efforts in areas impacted by devastating cyclones Idai and Kenneth, which hit just a few weeks apart in March and April 2019. Capping an emotional two-day visit, during which the Secretary-General commented repeatedly on the resilience of the Mozambican people, a remarkable thing happened early on Friday during his visit to areas affected by Cyclone Idai.‘You’re going to have a beautiful school’When Mr. Guterres asked a class of students: “How many of you have had your homes destroyed by the cyclone?”, almost every little hand was raised in the crowded classroom, which was baking under the hot sun because much of the roof ripped off by winds of 195-kilometer per hours when the cyclone hit.The school, Escola 25 de Junho, is in Mozambique’s second-largest city, Beira, where 90 per cent of all infrastructure was damaged during Idai on March 14 and 15. Every day now, as people struggle to recover and rebuild, the school hosts close to five thousand children, divided into three shifts, in classes of up to 90 students. It breaks my heart to see children get an education in a classroom with no roof. Months after Cyclones Idai and Kenneth, the situation in Mozambique is still extremely difficult. The international community must continue to provide tangible support & show strong solidarity.— António Guterres (@antonioguterres) July 12, 2019 UN Photo/Eskinder DebebeIn Beira, Mozambique, Secretary-General António Guterres (centre) visits the “25 de Junho” School that is hosting around 5,000 children ranging in ages from five to 14.“It happened suddenly, without any warning, and they went out and saw all the houses falling”, she said.Mr. Guterres said, “the United Nations has the obligation to do everything to help, especially people who are more vulnerable, who suffered the most with this tragedy.”Recovering Mozambicans ‘ready to build their future’A half-hour drive from Beira, Mr.  Guterres visited the Mandruzi Camp, where 480 families have been temporarily resettled. They have been given plots of land by the government, but still live in tents provided by the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and other humanitarian partners.At the Mandruzi Camp, the Secretary-General was warmly welcomed at a UNICEF-supported school with chants of Titio Guterres, or “Uncle Guterres”. The UN chief shared a light moment with a class of first graders when he tested them on how well they knew their numbers – up to four. Mr. Guterres then took a quick tour of the camp, meeting several families. He talked with residents, including two women and a young boy, about life in the camp. A few times, he asked if they liked their new place. “Yes,” he heard every time, because they felt safer.At a media event later in the day, the Secretary-General spoke about the challenges of resettlement in Mozambique. All temporary shelter provisions have ended in the country, and the 46 thousand people still living in camps are not going back to their old neighborhoods and villages. “I am sure that investment will be progressively made, and we will support this investment in education and health and other things necessary for the well-being of these populations”, he told journalists. The Secretary-General lauded the resilience and determination of the Mozambican people.  “I was already impressed with what I saw. What I saw was the great courage and determination of those people. I saw people already sowing and planting. They still don’t have a house, but they are already sowing, they are already planting. They already want to build their future.”‘We need the tools to go back to making a living’Before leaving Beira, an exception was made at a safe space for children and women, where traditionally men are not allowed, and the residents welcomed the Secretary-General. Outside the tent donated by the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), he placed his chair at the door, respecting the sanctity of the space. Mr. Guterres heard some concerns from the women, about how far away the school was for the older children; that they still lacked materials to start building houses; how difficult it is to raise children as a single mother. But mostly he heard how they don’t want to be dependent on help.“We just need the tools necessary to go back and make a living”, one woman said, adding that some of them were seamstresses or farmers, and that others would like to learn how to read and write, or how to make baskets and pottery that they could sell. “We want to feel like we are making a living with our own hands.” UN Photo/Eskinder DebebeSecretary-General António Guterres visits Mandruzi Resettlement Site in Mozambique.After leaving the camp, Mr. Guterres met with the humanitarian leadership team in Mozambique, and received an update on the emergency. He also visited the UN World Food Programme (WFP) warehouse, were he met more than 100 humanitarian workers involved in the response. The UN chief made special note of the Mozambican workers, saying he knew that some of them “had been victims, but have kept on working to help others.”The Secretary-General also visited a system of channels, dams and retention basins that were built with the support of a group of partners, including the World Bank. This investment prevented greater damage during the cyclone. This infrastructure is now being expanded. At the city Mayor’s office, Mr. Guterres went up to the roof to get a 360-degree view of the damage.He saw a tower in the corner of the building and decided to climb it. One old iron ladder after another until he was perched atop of the building, on a small round platform, looking North, where cyclone Kenneth hit six weeks after Idai, affecting 400 thousand people, and looking west, to the areas of Buzi and Dondo, where most of the 648 killed during the disaster lost their lives.The UN Secretary-General leaves Mozambique with the resilience, determination, and independence of the people forever imprinted on heart. The UN Secretary-General took a tour of the school, led by its Principal Frederico Francisco. Going from class to class, the Principal introduced Mr. Guterres and remind the children of “the very special visit” that they had talked about, adding that the UN chief “had come from very far because he heard about what happened here.”When Mr. Francisco led the UN chief to a makeshift class being held in the middle of a patio, Mr Guterres promised that “You’re going to have a beautiful school.” In another class, he urged the children to “keep studying, learn your subjects well, so that you can become engineers and doctors.” To another class, the UN chief explained what the UN stands for. “It’s a place where all the countries get together to try to solve the problems of the world. Sometimes they are able to do so, sometimes they are not”, he said.Among the five pavilions in the school, only one structure had not been damaged by the cyclone and remained solid. It opened in February this year, just before the disaster. It was built according to UN-Habitat’s technical guidance by a programme of the Government of Mozambique as an example of how buildings could be made resistant to extreme climate events. “That’s a great example of a culture of resilience, of how things can resist when they are built the right way”, Mr. Guterres observed. Across Mozambique, the same UN-Habitat good practices has influenced the construction of three thousand resilient classrooms, funded by several development partners, such as UNICEF, World Bank, and ECHO, among others.Guterres pledges UN support to persons with disabilitiesIt was inside this class built with UN-Habitat’s technical guidance that the Secretary-General met with a group of persons with disabilities and one person with albinism, as well as some of the most vulnerable people affected by the disaster. Forty-four-year-old Orlando Machambissa told the UN chief that “people with disabilities suffered twice more” than the rest of the population.  Mr. Machambissa has albinism and is losing his eyesight. He said that the night the cyclone hit was “a night that is impossible to forget”, adding that some people “had the courage to get their things that were being blown away by the wind, but the visually impaired could not see where the things were going.”Mr. Guterres also met 37-year-old Antónia Piripiri, a district coordinator for the Forum of Mozambican Associations of Persons with Disabilities (FAMOD). Ms. Piripiri has a hearing disability and, through an interpreter, explained that, in a country where most people get their news by the radio, people like her “had a lack of information” during the emergency. read more

Trump meets top Saudi prince

first_imgUS president Donald Trump and Saudi deputy crown prince and defense minister Mohammed bin Salman speak to the media in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, DC, on 14 March, 2017. Photo: AFPUS president Donald Trump hosted Saudi Arabia’s powerful deputy crown prince Mohammed bin Salman at the White House Tuesday, for talks expected to focus on the economy and rolling back Iranian influence.Trump welcomed the young prince to the Oval Office, as both countries expect to improve ties that were frequently strained under Barack Obama’s administration.Saudi Arabia is likely to welcome Trump’s harder line on its arch-rival Iran and there is likely to be less friction over Riyadh’s war against Iranian-backed Huthi rebels in Yemen.Saudi Arabia viewed Obama as being too accommodating towards Iran—particularly amid negotiations on a nuclear deal—while Washington held grave misgivings about civilian deaths in Yemen.Trump’s 50-plus days in office have given little indication about his stance on Saudi Arabia’s war, but have seen a dramatic uptick in US action against Al-Qaeda’s Yemen offshoot—AQAP.Second in line to the throne, Prince Mohammed is the son of King Salman and holds the post of defense minister, although much of his focus is on economic issues.He is the chief proponent of Vision 2030, a wide-ranging social and economic reform plan begun last year to diversify the oil dependent economy.He has also played a key role in the Yemen campaign.Trump has expressed hope that Saudi Arabia and other Gulf allies can be helpful across a range of issues, from creating safe zones in Syria to solving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.Riyadh is also seen by the White House as pivotal in any effort to constrain Iran’s influence across the Middle East.But that strategy has been widely questioned.“Anyone experiencing these visions ought to lie down and wait quietly until the sensation passes,” warned Aaron David Miller and Richard Sokolsky—foreign policy advisors to Republican and Democratic administrations.The pair warned in a Washington Post opinion editorial that “the president is likely to find that his vision of US interests, let alone strategy, doesn’t mesh with that of the Arabs on whom he’s relying.”Experts familiar with the region have also warned that any robust effort to counter Iran must be well thought through—as Tehran is likely to hit back at US interests asymmetrically and in a non-attributable way.last_img read more

BBCs 19 Microbit computer is now available to give the Raspberry Pi

first_imgThe BBC partnered with companies like ARM, Samsung, and Microsoft to develop the Micro:bit embedded system. The tiny programmable computers have already been sent out to most year seven students in the UK, and now they’re available for pre-order online with shipping expected in a few weeks. A single Micro:bit costs a mere £13 (about $19), but you’ll have to spend a bit more if you want extras like batteries and a USB cable.The Micro:bit has a lot in common with the hugely popular Raspberry Pi micro-computer, but it’s designed to be simpler to start using and includes some useful hardware and sensors on the board. Before you get started, the Micro:bit comes with an accelerometer, multiple I/O rings, magnetometer, Bluetooth, USB, an array of 25 LEDs, and two programmable buttons. It’s powered by a 32-bit ARM Cortex M0 CPU and has a 20-pin edge connector that allows it to be docked with more powerful modules like an Arduino.This device is aimed at getting kids more interested in technology and programming. The BBC has a site with suggestions for projects you could make with the Micro:bit like a scoreboard, a musical instrument, and more. Some of the projects just require a little light electronics work, but most of it includes creating code. The Micro:bit supports a simple graphical block editor by Microsoft as well as Microsoft Touch Develop, JavaScript (graphical and text), and Python. There are also apps for Android and iOS that can flash software to the board over Bluetooth.The Micro:bit is available from the manufacturer Element14 in bulk, but other resellers have listings live for single purchases. In addition to the lone board, you can get kits with extra hardware like breadboards and tutorials for £15 to£40 (about $21 to $56).

first_imgThe Indian Army is an excellent fighting force, and has few parallels in the world. But  of  late, the image of the soldier is diminishing which calls for immediate action. This is happening because the forces have to face divergent pulls and pressures which are different today than from yesteryears. Institutions have a long memory, take time to change. On the other hand, the Army has to operate in a dynamic environment, with an active press and a changing civil society which are able to apply pressure and push for changes. Also Read – Gateway of criminal justiceThus, it is the Army that is perceived at times to be unable to ‘keep up’ with the societal fluctuations, and due to its strict procedures, it is not able to present its side of the story with the dynamism expected of it. It has prolonged deployment in counter-insurgency operations leading to uncanny situations. Armies are trained, equipped, geared and made ready for the primary task which is to protect the nation from external threat. But today judgement is passed on it for how well it does its secondary task. In short, people tend to judge the doctor by how well the nurse performs. Also Read – Turning a blind eyeThe Army simply has no answer to live media carrying out television debates beaming live to soldiers’ bedrooms the twists and turns of various scams. In a democracy, this is the one thing that is acceptable, adds to transparency. But when quite often, officers are on the mat for becoming ketchup colonels, booze brigadiers, generals fighting over various issues and scams, some of which like the Sukna have been set aside by the Armed Forces Tribunal — the stage is set for a soldier to question: ‘What am I serving for, is this my officer class like?’ Does the Army need to change its value system? In fact, when threatened it must reinforce the old values, but its manner of interaction with the media, its manner of conduct when deployed in prolonged counter-insurgency operations, requires a holistic look and not a knee-jerk reaction. After the recent firing at Budgam, in which two young boys were killed, the Army admitted that it was a “mistake” and a violation of rules of engagement. The Army also said that it would complete its inquiry within ten days and take action against the guilty. The legal catch here is that once the Army Commander has agreed it is a mistake, are all procedural inquiries on the subject irrelevant? On the other hand, while the law enforcers are guilty, in the wake of protests and all good work done by the Army during the recent floods in that area and the fact that elections were around the corner, pressure was going up from civil society, reckless teenagers were moving in a vehicle to a restricted area, isn’t there also a need for civil society to look inwards as well? The ground reality is that because armed sentries are there everywhere in view of the live threat posed by terrorists, such incidents are bound to recur. If there is accidental firing, and a whole host of other scenarios, will the Army now admit to its mistake every time before an inquiry? This could well have happened in Delhi, but the issue inevitably takes a different colour in Jammu and Kashmir. Will the soldier be blamed before an inquiry? Some time ago, a paramilitary force in Delhi waited for its inquiry to take place, before having the added burden of having put the blame on any one. Loss of life is regrettable but loss of soldiers’ morale critical and difficult to restore.The greatest strength of the forces lies in its intangibles: such as, morale, training, ethos and value system, bonded by discipline. The Sukna scam and the Budgam incident touch upon all these intangibles, especially discipline and training. The Budgam affair was at best an operational cum training issue. By declaring the soldiers guilty before inquiry, a whole host of issues, which are morale-sensitive, have been opened up. Are these even debatable?  The Sukna scam AFT judgment opens up another can of worms, which the Army needs to take to its logical conclusion. If the military justice system is shown in poor light, won’t its soldiers need an answer?Television debates do need some introspection. The debates on geostrategy, arms and equipment do become interesting, but when discipline is debated or discussed yet nuts and bolts of the ground situation are generally not known, the picture becomes confusing. Of course, the media needs to report the various scams, it needs to show all the dead wood, but it should exercise its judgement, on what will be the impact on the morale of the soldier?  In the Sukna scam not an inch of Army land was involved, there was no trickery or fraud: then how come the word scam was used for a so-called issue of ‘No Objection Certificate’ (NOC)? Discipline is the very key to a soldier’s being and to impact on his sense of discipline, needs sense of responsibility from all, including the political class, who have left us equipment deficient. The impact of  the movie Haider which shows the soldiers in poor light  has also come at this juncture and what is the ‘langar gup’ one wonders.  How should the Army react in inadvertent cases? It should go back to the Chetwode credo, of safety, honour and welfare of nation first, soldier next and its commanders last. This implies, supreme national interest first, completion of inquiries before pronouncing soldiers guilty second, and the various twists and turns of scams and age related issues last and not on prime time television because of TRP. The Army has had a long stint in counter-insurgency operations. This tells on training there is a need to cut down exposure in counter-insurgency, but the drawdown from foreign forces in Afghanistan opens up a  different scenario and weakening of Army from the border areas improbable. The forces therefore, need to settle these issues in house. The entire issue is of faith and the generals need to have 56-inch chests while interacting with civil society and take on ‘bullets’ flying at the aam sipahi.The author is a retired brigadierlast_img read more

the masthead of pretty much any issue of LIFE magazine in the 1940s ’50s ’60s and even into the early ’70s is an eye-popping experience There in black and white are the names of many of the greatest photojournalists to ever pick up a camera — and without exception these are men and women who were on staff They were in short working stiffs — albeit some of the most talented tenacious innovative and gutsy working stiffs on the planetAnd yet as LIFE’s longtime managing editor George Hunt reportedly once said: "If LIFE could afford only one photographer it would have to be Ralph Morse"Such a claim while perhaps a surprise to photography buffs who might expect another name at the end 0f that sentence — Alfred Eisenstaedt Margaret Bourke-White Paul Schutzer W Eugene Smith or any number of other legends — such a claim makes sense when one considers the totality of Morse’s work through the decadesThe New York City native was LIFE’s youngest World War II correspondent when the magazine hired him when he was just 24 He went on to make several of the defining pictures from that conflict — and some of the most unsettling He covered Broadway and after the war the London stage He covered sports: his classic shot of Jackie Robinson dancing off of third base is one of the greatest baseball photographs ever made He covered science and technology making innovative pictures of modern marvels like the USS Nautilus America’s first nuclear-powered submarine and was the first civilian to fly on one of the Strategic Air Command’s B-47 Strotojet "globetrotter" missions in the mid-1950sHe made the first color photographs of the caves at Lascaux and was so closely identified with LIFE’s coverage of NASA and the Space Race — and spent so much time with John Glenn and the rest

Stadium the first Ali-Liston fight the Oscars and on and onHe was with the magazine up until its demise as a weekly in 1972 and shot for TIME for years afterward But it was with LIFE that he made his best work — the work for which he will forever be rememberedIn John Loengard’s classic 1998 book LIFE Photographers: What They Saw Morse discusses the end of LIFE as a weekly — and decades after the fact it’s clear that it still hurtI was down at Cocoa Beach [Florida] covering Apollo 17 We had made a very special picture of everything you need to go to the moon We shot it and went to bed I called the color lab the next morning and asked "How did the color come out"They said "Oh the color is fine but there’s no magazine to put it in"And that was the first I heard it It was a very bad shock First because I’d been there for 30 years and you sort of reach a point where it’s your home The shock was much worse than whether we could find jobs because we were all pretty well known That didn’t bother me I just went to work for TIME I didn’t retire until April 1988 Then I sold every camera I don’t own a camera I don’t take a pictureIf I had a camera everybody and his brother would say "Gee would you shoot my wedding Would you take my kid getting married" I don’t own a camera so I can’t do itDuring one of the last conversations this writer had with him Morse repeated a bit of wisdom he first shared with LIFEcom years ago — an insight into the man’s approach to his craft and (as so many men and women who worked with him through the years will attest) his seemingly boundless exuberance for meeting new people and learning new things"A good photojournalist goes into any situation prepared" he said in his inimitable sandpaper-raspy voice "You find out something at least one
