Kolkata: Coming down heavily on the BJP for running a ‘parallel government’ for the last five years, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday urged the CPI(M) and the Congress to join hands with Trinamool Congress to fight the BJP.”The situation in Bhatpara has made the people of the state realize what happens if you vote for BJP. The way they are functioning in the country, I apprehend they will change the Constitution one day. I feel all of us (TMC, Congress and CPIM) should come together in the fight against the saffron party. It doesn’t mean we have to join hands politically, but on common issues at the national level, we can come together,” she said while speaking in the state Assembly.

She appealed to the Congress and the CPI(M) to be vocal against alleged EVM manipulation on the part of BJP to swing votes in their favour. “It is your prerogative with whom you should forge an alliance. But I feel, we need to be united to fight the fascist BJP. We stand by the Congress in various issues in Parliament and it should be the same in our state too,” she asserted. BJP had managed to win 18 out of 42 seats in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls against TMC’s 22 seats. Congress won two seats while the Left failed to open its account. It may be mentioned that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said time and again that CPI(M) and the Congress have connived against the TMC right from the Panchayats to the Lok Sabha polls.

By Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsAssembly of First Nations National Chief Shawn Atleo on Friday confirmed Prime Minister Stephen Harper won’t be present for the full Crown-First Nations Gathering next Tuesday.The country’s most prominent First Nations leader downplayed the impact saying that it wouldn’t take away from potential of the event between the Conservative government and hundreds of First Nations chiefs.“No I don’t think (the prime minister) is going to be there to the end of the day,” said Atleo, in an interview with APTN National News. “There are around a dozen cabinet ministers (that will be there) and he’s sent a signal to all of government that this is really important and this is led by him.”A total of 11 cabinet ministers and a number of federal officials are expected to attend the meeting. Gov. Gen. David Johnston is also expected to attend the opening ceremonies and make a short speech.Harper said in December he hoped the meeting would be “historic.” The prime minister announced the meeting on Dec. 1 in his Parliament Hill office with Atleo sitting next to him as the political fallout from the Attawapiskat housing crisis was reaching its climax.Some chiefs, however, have expressed displeasure over Harper’s planned departure during the meeting. Chiefs have been told that the prime minister would leave the meeting by lunch time to prepare for a trip to Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum.Chiefs have been told that Harper will only be present for the opening ceremonies and speeches, one of which he will deliver.Saskatchewan’s main First Nations organization called on Harper to change his plans and “and meet directly with First Nations” leaders.“According to the draft agenda, there is no opportunity for chiefs or the regional chiefs to speak directly with the prime minister,” said Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations vice-chief Morley Watson.Watson called on the Conservatives to commit to a yearly Canada-First Nations gathering and a first ministers meeting to deal with “outstanding inherent and treaty rights issues.”Wahta Mohawks band Coun. Stuart Lane said he doesn’t expect much to come out of the meeting.“I don’t know what we can really do at any kind of meeting like that,” said Lane, whose community is in Ontario. “We need more internal things that need to be done between nations to support each other.”Lane said he wasn’t attending the meeting, but the Wahta Mohawks did plan to send a delegation.According to a consultant who has been involved in discussions around the upcoming gathering, the prime minister’s planned departure is “a big issue” among many chiefs.“The expectations are too high, a lot of people are going to be disappointed,” said the consultant, who requested anonymity because they are currently working on files involving Ottawa and First Nations. The consultant said other chiefs could pick up the call issued by the FSIN for a meeting between premiers, the prime minister and First Nations leaders, but he doubted Harper would ever agree to it.Harper, however, was once open to a meeting with premiers and First Nations leaders.He actually planned to hold one within two or three years of taking office, according to a letter he sent to the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples shortly before he was first elected in February 2006.“The Conservative Party of Canada is committed to holding another meeting with first ministers and national Aboriginal leaders within the next two or three years,” wrote Harper, in a Jan. 10, 2006, letter to CAP.Harper wanted the meeting to “measure progress” on the $5 billion Kelowna Accord which former prime minister Paul Martin signed with First Nations leaders before losing office.Once Harper became prime minister, his government scrapped the deal.Atleo, however, believes that Canada is on the cusp of a new relationship with First Nations peoples and Harper wants to succeed where so many other governments have failed.Atleo said Tuesday’s meeting is the first step on that path.“It is an opportunity…to push for a reset of the relationship and become full partners and set out a plan of action,” he said. “Where we work with not just a single minister, but the full machinery of government and the prime minister expressed his commitment to do that.”firstname.lastname@example.org
NEW YORK — In time for her 60th birthday, Barbie has a new collaborator bringing her wide-ranging style to life for humans.One of the largest sellers of vintage-inspired clothes, Unique Vintage, is working with Barbie parent Mattel on the first women’s line to meticulously duplicate some of the doll’s most iconic early looks. In the process, the company also has taken care of the one thing critics love to hate about Barbie, her very plastic hourglass physique, by offering the outfits in sizes XS to 4X.The collaboration, Barbie x Unique Vintage, celebrates 1950s and ’60s Babs. The company that sells online and in about 500 boutiques around the world plans to go even bigger for Barbie’s big 6-0 next year, offering key fashion moments from across the rest of her decades.Until then, for fall, we caught up with all things Barbie x Unique Vintage in the swanky Jewel Suite designed by jeweler-to-the-stars Martin Katz in the Lotte New York Palace hotel on Madison Avenue. Katz paired a few of the looks with some of his own bling, from $36,000 button earrings in a rainbow of sapphires, garnets and tourmaline to a $48,000 cocktail ring of Bombay spinel cabochons and round diamonds.All of the glam pleases Katie Echeverry. She’s the founder, CEO and creative director of Unique Vintage, an 18-year-old company with 60 employees based in Burbank, California. With her long blonde locks and Barbie-esque dimensions, Echeverry said she was a Babs fan as a girl but was also a “tomboy” who loved to play softball.During a recent round of media interviews explaining how the collab came about, Echeverry donned a Kelly-green shawl dress worn by Barbie in 1962 and done by Unique Vintage in a forgiving stretch fabric. Noteworthy was Echeverry’s most definitely un-Barbie upper-arm tattoo, on proud display in the off-shoulder outfit, as she recalled her luck.“When I emailed Mattel, I didn’t think they’d actually reply back, but they did, and I was thrilled,” Echeverry told The Associated Press. “They ran with it. I couldn’t believe they hadn’t done it before.”Echeverry worked closely with Mattel but “they didn’t dictate what I chose.” Mattel opened its archives to her as she went about duplicating outfits, with adjustments to account for the real human form. She said she chose looks that “spoke to me.”Barbie, the doll, first hit store shelves in 1959. That year, she stepped out in a swirl of gold and white brocade for evening. The dress was among those Echeverry picked and sells for $118 on uniquevintage.com. The matching collar coat with three-quarter sleeves trimmed in faux fur goes for $148.Unique Vintage has brought Barbie fashion full circle, in a sense. It was a designer for actual women, Charlotte Johnson, who was hired to be the doll’s first fashion creator. A Mattel team took over soon after Barbie’s debut.Echeverry’s first Barbie go-around dropped in the spring. Social media fans of vintage and of Barbie took notice and sales have been brisk, she said. For fall, her prices range from $88 for an A-shaped Barbie flare skirt in green with a white hem to $198 for the doll’s red matinee sleeveless sheath dress and short jacket trimmed with calico-colored faux fur.It was important to Echeverry to choose looks that have remained iconic through the years but were wearable by women in the broad range of sizes she is committed to providing.“I was like a kid in a candy store,” she said. After the first season went on sale, Echeverry watched the response online, where nostalgia kicked in among fans who recalled favourite outfits, some gushing how they’d always wondered what it would be like to wear the looks themselves.That goes a long way in explaining why Echeverry was more than a little dedicated to getting the clothes right.“I went online and ordered every single vintage outfit myself. Mattel offered to lend them to me, but I was a little nervous about having some of their archives,” she said. “In our fittings, we literally had the original Barbie dress next to the model. We moved Barbie. When I sourced fabrics overseas, I had Barbie clothes in my pocket and I was making sure we got as close as possible.”She was also dedicated to the price points she knows her buyers are after.“I know our customer and she doesn’t want to spend a lot of money, and I understand that,” Echeverry said.Unique Vintage sells shoes, hats, gloves, sunglasses and jewelry to complement the Barbie outfits. The company offers a red pillbox hat, for instance, to go with Barbie’s 1962 red flare coat done in a soft felt with the same swing and puffy three-quarter sleeves and bow the doll wore, down to the white lining done in a white poly satin.Barbie wore a cloche tweed hat with a rose with her “Career Girl” tweed pencil skirt set in 1963. Unique Vintage offers a black fascinator with a rose instead, for $22.As for her afternoon of glam in the Martin Katz suite, with its shiny black grand piano and sparkling crystal ceiling decor on the 53rd floor of the Towers at Lotte, Echeverry was impressed.“This is so glamorous. It’s so much fun. The view’s incredible,” she said.While noting Barbie’s evolution as a “strong kick-ass woman” over the years, Echeverry said she was ready for a bit of her own reality after her recent promotional go-round.“It’s unusual to find me in a dress,” she said. “As soon as this interview’s over I’ll be putting on my jeans and my T-shirt and be back to the regular Katie.”Leanne Italie, The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS — A woman who says JD.com founder Richard Liu raped her in Minneapolis is suing the Chinese billionaire and his company.Jingyao Liu, a student at the University of Minnesota, sued Liu on Tuesday, alleging that he raped her at her apartment.Liu was arrested Aug. 31 in Minneapolis on suspicion of felony rape and released within hours. He had been attending a weeklong residency as part of the University of Minnesota’s doctor of business administration China program.Prosecutors announced in December that Liu would not face criminal charges because they could not prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Liu’s attorneys said at the time that his arrest was based on a false claim.The Associated Press does not generally name alleged victims of sexual assault without their consent. Jingyao Liu’s attorney Wil Florin said she had agreed to allow her name to be used.Amy Forliti, The Associated Press
Ohio State head women’s volleyball coach Geoff Carlston watches theaction during his team’s match with Purdue on Friday, Oct. 27 at St. John Arena inColumbus, Ohio. Purdue won the match 3-0. Credit: Jeff Helfrich | Former Lantern ReporterThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team (11-7, 2-4 Big Ten) takes on the state of Michigan in a weekend-long battle as the women’s volleyball team welcomes No. 13 Michigan and Michigan State to St. John arena this weekend. The Wolverines bring the most impressive record the Buckeyes have faced this season at 15-2, and 4-2 within the conference. The Spartans stand at 14-5 and 2-4 in the Big Ten.“The Big Ten is all kind of beating each other up right now. Each weekend can flip everything so this is a big weekend for us, we’re excited for it,” head coach Geoff Carlston said. The Michigan teams bring impressive players, with each of their top attackers leading the teams with 225 kills, compared to the leading Buckeye, freshman opposite hitter Vanja Bukilić, with 199. Michigan senior outside hitter and team captain Carly Skjodt poses a threat to the Buckeyes, and according to Carlston, the rest of the Big Ten as well. “She’s tough man, she has all the shots, she grinds, she’s definitely one of their leaders,” Carlston said. “There’s lots of great outside hitters but her back-row attack is maybe one of the best in the conference.”Skjodt received Big Ten Player of the Week on Oct. 8, along with two other award-winning Wolverines. Senior libero Jenna Lerg earned Big Ten Conference Defensive Player of the Week and junior MacKenzi Welsh earned Big Ten Conference Co-Setter of the Week.“There’s always a big sense of rivalry between us and Michigan and they’ve been playing well so obviously we need to raise the stakes a little bit,” said freshman defensive specialist Camryn Moeller. Carlston agreed the heightened rivalry changes the dynamic of the match. “We feel it like everyone does,” he said. “We’ve beaten them most of the time hear, and they’ve beaten us there. The environment is huge so we’re hoping to have this place rocking for sure on Friday. It’s a big match for both of us.”With a large number of player injuries this season, the Buckeyes have not enjoyed the consistency of any one lineup. The team and staff continue to work on communication and comfort on the court. “As a staff we’re trying to be more creative and do different things to keep it fresh,” said Carlston. “The chemistry on the floor is so important. You have to really be comfortable with the people to your left and right and that’s been tough because we haven’t had that ability to have the same group on the floor this year.”Ohio State will face Michigan on Friday at 7 p.m. and Michigan State on Sunday at 1 p.m. for Ohio State’s Dig Pink match to honor breast cancer survivors.
GREAT WHITE SHARKS are likely to be rising in numbers off the coast of California and are not at risk of extinction despite some reports to the contrary, US researchers have confirmed.The findings are good news for the ocean predator, suggesting that around 2,000 of them are swimming about in the Eastern North Pacific, not 219 as research released three years ago had indicated.“If something is wrong with the largest, most powerful group in the sea, then something is wrong with the sea, so it’s a relief to find they’re in good shape,” said George Burgess, director of the Florida Program for Shark Research.“That we found these sharks are doing OK, better than OK, is a real positive in light of the fact that other shark populations are not necessarily doing as well,” said Burgess, a co-founder of the Shark Specialist Group of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.The study appears in the journal PLOS ONE.The earlier count was based on research at two sites — the Farallon Islands west of San Francisco, and nearby Tomales Point — where seals congregate and so do the sharks that eat them.By accounting for all life stages of sharks there, researchers found that their numbers were more likely around 2,000, not 200.Since sharks are difficult to count, and populations were so fluid at those two sites, researchers also widened their research scope to include other known gathering spots from Mexico into British Columbia and Alaska.The US National Marine Fisheries Service has declined petitions to add white sharks to the endangered species list, estimating the Eastern North Pacific population at about 3,000 sharks.- © AFP, 2014Read: Incredible photo captures huge shark approaching swimmer off Kerry beach >Read: The googles and swimming cap of a woman taken by a shark have been found >
Buses were delayed and several schools were closed on Wednesday following overnight snowfall across Clark County. And forecasters predict more snow may hit the area this weekend.The National Weather Service in Portland had forecasted a mix of snow and rain across the Portland-Vancouver area for Wednesday morning, but weather officials were somewhat surprised by the amount of snowfall in one portion of the county.The county’s school districts sent out alerts warning of the delays and closures.The Battle Ground, Camas, Green Mountain, Hockinson and La Center school districts’ buses traveled on snow routes, which caused two-hour delays for the start of the school day.Battle Ground and Hockinson schools canceled morning preschool programs.Battle Ground announced around 7:30 a.m. that its north schools had been closed for the day. Washougal School District said about an hour later that it had closed its facilities for the day.Green Mountain cancelled its lunch service and asked students to bring a lunch.Meteorologist Evan Bentley said areas around 500 feet in the Vancouver area got a light dusting of snow, but not a measurable amount. The snow quickly melted in lower areas, he said.
Exceptional Women in Publishing (EWIP) will hold its 6th Annual Women’s Leadership Conference, a popular media, technology and publishing industry event, in March with a slew of fresh ideas on the theme “How to Move Forward: Women Leaders in Media.”“The goal of this year’s conference program is to illuminate the many ways women are moving forward in the industry,” says Máire Walsh, EWIP president, in a statement.For the first time, the non-profit educational organization will be accepting proposals for session topics at the conference. Founded in 1998, EWIP was created to address the ambitions of women and girls in the magazine publishing industry with a concentration on education, empowerment and community support.“By opening up the program for public submissions, we will be able to tap into the depth of experience and talent in the publishing community,” Walsh says.Applications should be submitted electronically through the Convene A Session form by Nov. 15, 2013. Session selections will be announced on Dec. 12, 2013 and the conference will be held March 5, 2014 in San Francisco with more than 250 attendees expected.

Lett. October 2014 vol. 10 no. 10 20140643. Published 1 October 2014 DOI: 10.1098/rsbl.2014.0643AbstractThe acoustic ecology of marine fishes has traditionally focused on adults, while overlooking the early life-history stages. Here, we document the first acoustic recordings of pre-settlement stage grey snapper larvae (Lutjanus griseus). Through a combination of in situ and unprovoked laboratory recordings, we found that L. griseus larvae are acoustically active during the night, producing ‘knock’ and ‘growl’ sounds that are spectrally and temporally similar to those of adults. While the exact function and physiological mechanisms of sound production in fish larvae are unknown, we suggest that these sounds may enable snapper larvae to maintain group cohesion at night when visual cues are reduced.

But, as the research trio point out, few studies have been conducted to learn about the possibly of noise made by young fish or even fish larvae. In their study, they looked at gray snappers (Lutjanus griseus) that live off the coast of Florida.Adult female gray snappers drop their eggs in the open ocean into beds of seagrass—larvae that emerge live off food in the seagrass bed until reaching maturity. To find out if the larvae make noise, the researches put a camera, microphone and lights into a waterproof clear box and dropped it into the sea at night—the lights helped find where the snappers congregated. To make sure the noises they were recording were coming from the larvae, the researchers captured several larvae samples and took them back to their lab where they were recorded in a tank of water. Analysis of the recordings showed the larvae made two kinds of sounds: “knocking” and “growling.” Interestingly, the knocking sound was very similar to the knocking sounds made by adults of the same species. They noted also that the pattern of sounds generated by the larva differed depending on if they were in the open ocean or in the lab tank—in the lab, the larvae produced more sounds per interval and had longer times between them, suggesting perhaps that they were waiting to hear a reply.The researchers can’t say for sure why the larva make noise but suggest it might help the snappers as a whole maintain group cohesion at night when it’s more difficult to see. They suggest the growling sound may be similar to the cries that babies of many species make to get the attention of the adults. This document is subject to copyright.

Friday, September 15, 2017 Tags: Hawaii Hotels facing US$10,000 fines for hidden resort fees HONOLULU — Resort fees are now rampant in top tourism destinations like Florida, Hawaii, Las Vegas and parts of the Caribbean, however a consumer protection agency in at least one state is pulling out all the stops to bring hidden fees to light, in a move that could drive a hidden fee crackdown in other destinations.The Hawaii Office of Consumer Protection says it’s investigating resort fees charged by hotel operators as part of a nationwide effort to curb hidden industry fees.Hawaii News Now reports that state and federal regulators are cracking down on hotels that charge resort fees without fully disclosing the charges to visitors.The resort fees cover costs of hotel amenities ranging from use of hotel gyms, telephone services, access to business centres and other amenities.Resort fees at Hawaii hotels typically range between US$10 and $40 a night and aren’t usually included in the standard room rate online.Stephen Levins, the Office of Consumer Protection’s executive director, says a hotel operator can be fined up to $10,000 per violation if the resort fees are found to be unfair or deceptive. << Previous PostNext Post >> Posted by Share Travelweek Group

AirAsia X celebrates new route to Jaipur, the “Pink City”AirAsia X celebrates new route to Jaipur, the “Pink City”AirAsia X is celebrating the launch of four times-weekly flights to Jaipur, India via Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia commencing 5 February 2018.The world’s best low cost airline is running a special promotion with all-in fares to Jaipur from AUD$241* one-way. Fares are available on airasia.com and on the AirAsia mobile app for booking now until 25 November 2017 for travel from 5 February 2018 until 06 May 2018.AirAsia X is the first low-cost long-haul carrier to fly direct from Kuala Lumpur to Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan. This follows a successful launch of the Bangkok-Jaipur route in September this year operated by its short-haul affiliate AirAsia Thailand.The award-winning airline also flies to New Delhi, which commenced in February 2016 and has registered a healthy average load factor of 88 per cent. Jaipur is the 12th destination in India on the AirAsia Group network.AirAsia X Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Kamarudin Meranun said, “We are very happy and proud to be the first low cost carrier to offer connectivity between Jaipur in India through this unique route. India is a very important market to us, and we will continue to expand our services to key Indian cities including the second and third tier cities especially those that lack good connectivity.”AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer Benyamin Ismail said, “This new route will offer travel convenience and affordable options for our guests. Before this, guests wanting to travel to Jaipur with us would have had to first fly from Kuala Lumpur to Delhi for five hours and 30 minutes, or to Mumbai for five hours before taking a domestic flight, spending quite a bit for another hour from Delhi or two and a half hours from Mumbai to reach Jaipur. For those who opt for ground travel, it will take at least five hours to get to Jaipur from Delhi and about half the journey from Mumbai. We are expecting to carry between 132,000 and 143,000 passengers between February and December next year for this route with a frequency of 4 times a week.”Pink in color and pink in vibrancy, the city of Jaipur is one of most beautiful and magnificent cities of India. As the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is also the largest city of the state and is the first planned city of India.Jaipur’s rich cultural heritage is displayed in the traditions, customs, lifestyle, art, jewellery, textiles and architecture of the place. Jaipur’s culture is evident through its art, music and architecture. It is one city that, even after modernisation, still holds to its history, culture and values.The majestic forts and havelis, the beautiful temples, the serene landscapes, and the rich cultural heritage, have made Jaipur an ideal destination for tourists. The foundation of the city dates back to the eighteenth century, with credit to the great warrior Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, who ascended the Amber Throne in 1699.The glorious past of Jaipur comes alive in the palaces and forts in the city where once lived by the royal clans. Apart from Amber Palace, among the must-see magnificent iconic landmarks in Jaipur are City Palace, Hawa Mahal, Jal Mahal, Nahargarh Fort, Birla Temple, Jantar Mantar and Panna Meena ka Kund.

The majority of political leaders were non-committal on Friday leaving the National Council ahead of Sunday’s meeting between President Nicos Anastasiades in New York, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.The National Council was called by Anastasiades to brief political leaders on his upcoming meeting with Guterres and Akinci at UN headquarters in New York.The National Council was attended by the leaders of the parliamentary parties, except Elam, House speaker Demetris Syllouris and former presidents Demetris Christofias and George Vasiliou. Present also were Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides, Government Spokesman Nicos Christodoulides and chief negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis.Political leaders, except those of Diko and Edek, left the meeting without making any comments.Diko leader Nicolas Papadopoulos said that he was not satisfied by what the president told them, and called for a change of strategy as to the settlement negotiations.“I fear that at the moment, not only do we not have a strategy, but our positions are not convincing,” Papadopoulos said on his way out. He added that the president goes back and forth on his positions.Edek’s Marinos Sizopoulos warned that the New York meeting could be a trap.“The president could not of course decline the invitation, but this meeting might entail pitfalls. We have advised the president to be careful to avoid these pitfalls that might land our side in a difficult position,” Sizopoulos said.Akel leader, Andros Kyprianou, said that he would speak only after the UN dinner, and wished good luck to the president.Disy head Averof Neophytou wished the president good luck in a tweet, whereas the leader of the Citizens’ Alliance tweeted that political leaders pledged to refrain from criticism until the end of the meeting. “We will honour it,” Lillikas said.Earlier in the day, Anastasiades had a telephone conversation with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.Deputy Government Spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said following the meeting, that the president briefed political leaders in detail as to what took place since last week’s National Council meeting, and on the results of the visits earlier in the week of UN Special Adviser Espen Barth Eide in Athens and Ankara.Guterres had invited the two leaders to a dinner on Sunday that is hoped to produce agreement on the resumption of the Geneva conference on Cyprus.The talks stumbled on May 17, when both leaders agreed to the need for a resumption of the Geneva conference but Anastasiades proposed that security, guarantees, and territory be tackled first, in isolation, before the open-ended conference touches on other issues for as long as it takes.This was rejected by Akinci, who countered that the agreement has always been that all issues are discussed interdependently.The deputy spokesman said that the Anastasiades’ proposal on how to proceed with the settlement negotiations, “is the most realistic and feasible one” and the only one that can take the talks a step further.The president, Papadopoulos said, made a call for unity in view of the critical meeting in New York.Last Friday, Eide officially announced ending his efforts to facilitate agreement between the two sides over the issue and said he would consult with Guterres on the way forward.A diplomatic source said the secretary-general’s intention is not to impose the way forward on the two leaders but to listen to their views, with regard to both where things stand and, crucially, the next steps.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
