Police NGOs discuss women safety

first_imgNew Delhi: Security of shelter homes, police patrolling, constables training, surveillance on the illegal supply of drugs were the issues which were raised and discussed in the meeting held between Delhi Police and 17 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working on women’s safety in the city.Police sources told Millennium Post the meeting was held at the Special Police Unit for Women & Children (SPUWAC) in Malviya Nagar area. It was presided by Special Commissioner of Police (Women Safety, SPUWAC & SPUNER). Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderAs many as 26 representatives from 17 NGOs attended the meeting. In the meeting, issues like dark spots, community sensitisation, surveillance on drug peddling were discussed. “One of the NGO officials raised a point that security of shelter homes should be strengthened. Another member said that district-level meeting with NGOs should be organised regularly,” sources said. In the meeting, the discussion was also held on the topic related to training of constables about how to interact with women and children of sexual violence. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThereafter, Special CP suggested few points in the meeting that “there should be interaction amongst police, NGOs and public at the grass-root level”. Adding further, the senior police officer said that the NGOs should submit their complaint, if any, in writing to the concerned DCP/ACP/SHO. They should also have the phone numbers of police officers in their areas. “Soft skill programmes are being organised in districts. NGOs should identify suitable areas to organise the programme. NGOs and the general public should come forward with their issues so that the same could be resolved,” was one of the points suggested by Special CP. The Special CP further suggested that the specific issues of a particular area should be raised. If NGOs want to meet with district DCP, they may seek an appointment and raise their issues itself.last_img read more

For many hotels terror risks make tight security routine

first_imgIn many parts of the world, the constant fear of extremist attacks has led to tighter security measures at hotels and resorts, but that is less so in the United States, where hotels are reluctant to intrude on the privacy of guests.Security experts say the shooting attack that left at least 59 people dead in Las Vegas could lead to more cameras and more training for hotel staff.More aggressive measures such as metal detectors or X-ray screening of guests and luggage — standard for airline travel — are less likely to gain footing in the U.S. because of cost and privacy concerns.Although they are private property, hotels are notably public spaces in most of the world. In many places, luxury hotels have entrances from shopping malls, and their lobbies serve as a refuge from noisy, chaotic streets.Hotel operators in other countries are increasingly deploying armed guards, vehicle barricades, X-ray machines and other measures to reduce the risk of attack.The King David Hotel in Jerusalem, where President Donald Trump and other foreign leaders have stayed, reportedly uses infrared cameras carried by balloons and robots in sewers to search for bombs. Windows on higher floors can withstand gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades, and the air conditioning system is designed to block attacks using poison gas.The Resorts World Manila casino in the Philippines said it hired a security contractor, Blackpanda, and established new security protocols after a man with a gambling addiction carried out an arson attack in June that left 37 dead, the latest major incident in Asia.Even before the attack, visitors to Resorts World — like many other hotels, office buildings and shopping malls in Manila — were required to pass through metal detectors and have their bags X-rayed. Somehow the attacker got past hotel security with an ammunition vest and assault rifle.That was a trifling arsenal compared with the 23 guns and prodigious ammunition stockpile that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock hoarded in his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino overlooking the Las Vegas Strip and a packed country music festival.Attention is certain to focus on how Paddock was able to carefully prepare and stage his deadly attack on Sunday night.“My guess is we will see more security cameras at many hotels and more monitoring of people who bring many large packages to a hotel room,” said Bjorn Hanson, a professor of hospitality and tourism at New York University. “But I don’t think one event will lead to more intrusive measures” in the U.S. such as metal detectors or X-raying guests’ bags.Hanson also believes that hotels, perhaps pressured by their insurance carriers, will increase training of staff to spot suspicious behaviour or materials left in rooms. There is a model for that in training to help staff spot human trafficking, he said.Jeffrey Price, a security expert at Metropolitan State University of Denver, said employees who clean rooms should report it to a supervisor if they see weapons, but that screening guests’ bags would be difficult in a place like Las Vegas, where people having a lot of luggage is not all that unusual.“It would be a logistical nightmare to screen everybody going into and out of the hotel room, not to mention costing billions of dollars,” Price said. “That also gets into all sorts of privacy-rights issues.”Hanson and Price said people who attend major public events should take their own precautions including knowing where the exits are, having an escape route in mind and a place to meet with companions if they get separated.The American Hotel and Lodging Association said that hotels in Las Vegas were working closely with local law enforcement after the shooting.“Hotels have safety and security procedures in place that are regularly reviewed, tested and updated as are their emergency response procedures,” the group’s president, Katherine Lugar, said in a statement. “As we better understand the facts in the coming days, we will continue to work with law enforcement to evaluate these measures.”Hotels already employ security measures such as asking guests to show their room key in the lobby, and limiting access to some floors to those who have a keycard. But because the U.S. hasn’t had the same experience — in frequency or ferocity — of hotel attacks in countries where security is tougher, that could make stringent measures seem less worthy when applied against a cost-benefit ratio.Other regions can’t afford or aren’t willing to take the risk. For instance, Africa saw two attacks on hotels within months of each other in 2015 — 38 died in Tunisia and 18 in Mali.Tunisia depends on tourism and seen arrivals plummet since a spate of attacks. Since 2015, hotels have beefed up police presence and brought in metal detectors.At the Radisson Blu hotel in Mali’s capital of Bamako, there is now a scanner for bags, and vehicles are blocked from driving in front of the building.In some cases, extra security steps were not enough.In 2009, attackers in Indonesia smuggled explosives past security guards and metal detectors and set off a blast at the Marriott and the Ritz-Carlton hotels in Jakarta that killed eight. Six years earlier, a car bomb at the Jakarta Marriott killed 12.In India in 2008, extremists targeted two luxury hotels, a train station and restaurant in a 60-hour siege in Mumbai that left more than 160 dead.Hotel chains operating in India including Accor, Hyatt and Marriott now use handheld trace detectors and X-ray scanners to check for explosives and contraband. The upscale Lemon Tree Hotel at New Delhi’s airport brought in a facial recognition system to keep track of visitors.Indonesia and India have strengthened hotel security since then, said Mario Hardy, CEO of the Pacific Asia Travel Association. Vehicles are checked, many hotels scan luggage with X-rays, and there are more security cameras.“As consumers we may sometime see those as nuisance, but I think events such as these remind us all the importance of security measures,” he said.___Kelvin Chan reported from Hong Kong; David Koenig reported from Dallas.last_img read more

Lawmakers in 9 states unite against offshore drilling

first_imgPORTLAND, Maine — A group of nine Democratic lawmakers from different coastal states say they will use their coming legislative sessions to try to block attempts at offshore drilling.The lawmakers’ announcement Tuesday comes as new and re-elected legislators are entering office. It’s also about a year after Trump’s administration announced plans to expand drilling. The state lawmakers say their bills will seek to limit the possibility of drilling off their coasts.The lawmakers represent Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon and Rhode Island. They say their respective states must do more to encourage renewable energy rather than fossil fuel extraction.State legislatures are limited in what they can do to stop drilling beyond state waters, but the lawmakers say they’re showing a united stand against the practice.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Canadian couple find lost ticket… turn into last-minute lottery millionaires

first_imgMontreal: A Quebec couple won 1 million Canadian dollar (USD750,000) in the lottery after finding a winning ticket that had been forgotten in a book for months, the province’s Loto-Quebec organization said Wednesday. Nicole Pedneault and Roger Larocque only realized last weekend that they had a winning ticket from an April 5, 2018 drawing. While looking through a book about Japan to help her grandson with a school project, Pedneault noticed something had fallen from the pages. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USIt was a lottery ticket the couple had bought for Valentine’s Day last year. “If my grandson hadn’t asked me to give him some things for his presentation, I wouldn’t have ever found the ticket,” Pedneault said. “The first thing I did when I found the ticket in the book was go look at the deadline for claiming winnings on the Loto-Quebec website,” she said. The ticket was still valid, but not for long — only until Friday. “It’s all just by chance that we found it at the last minute like that,” the winner said as she claimed her check.last_img read more

Questions over coverage plague rural broadband expansion

There is widespread agreement that expanding broadband internet in rural America is desperately needed.But the maps the federal government has been using to hand out cash to make it happen don’t accurately reflect how many people have access to high-speed service. Critics say that’s because carriers have overstated their coverage.So when Federal Communications Commission officials assessed who was eligible for a recent $4.5 billion grant program, places such as Kelly Povroznik’s hometown of Weston, West Virginia, were deemed too well-connected to qualify.Povroznik teaches an online college course that has been hampered by slow connections on her computer and phone. She has had to drive a half-hour to her brother’s place just to enter grades into a database.Now, the grant program is on hold as the FCC investigates its speed data and lawmakers call for better maps.Anthony Izaguirre, The Associated Press read more

Only few cases in Lanka resolved says rights group

The organization is currently actively campaigning on the cases of more than 500 individuals who have been subjected to enforced disappearance, and is continuing to pressure governments to determine the fate and whereabouts of all those who have been disappeared. (Colombo Gazette) Tens of thousands are presumed to have disappeared in the conflict between the LTEE and the military which ended in 2009, and in an earlier counter insurgency campaign by the security forces against leftists in 1989-90 and only a very few cases have been resolved, a leading human rights group said today.The London based Amnesty International said that there has also been blatant intimidation reported against families who have dared to ask questions about the whereabouts of their loved ones. Now, even in peacetime, the disappearances continue. Newspaper cartoonist Prageeth Egnalikoda was disappeared shortly before the 2010 presidential election. In a statement to mark the international day of the disappeared which falls on Sunday, Amnesty International noted that several commissions have been appointed by successive governments since 1990 implicating leading politicians and high ranking officers in the police and security forces. However, the authorities have mostly ignored recommendations that these figures, some of whom remain in their positions, should be prosecuted. His wife Sandya told Amnesty International that seeing justice done and the perpetrators convicted has become Sandya’s main struggle in life now.The use of enforced disappearance by governments to silence its critics and instil fear into targeted groups continues unabated in every region of the world, said Amnesty International. read more

John Humphrys I was foolish to chase off intruder with pair of

“What I should have done was end the call swiftly, dial 999 and lock the kitchen door. Instead I grabbed a pair of secateurs, charged out into the garden brandishing them as though they were a cavalryman’s sabre and rushed at him, screaming threats in the sort of language that has no place in a respectable publication.”If he had been only a little less surprised, he would have quickly sized me up. He would have seen a scared, skinny old geezer twice his age, removed my ‘weapon’ from my trembling hands and gone about his business. “That’s assuming he did not do to me what I had been threatening to do to him.”He said the man “muttered something unintelligible” about looking for somewhere to sleep before fleeing the garden over the back wall.” Only then did I dial 999 — and realise what an utter fool I had been. What if he had stood his ground? Would I really have stabbed him with the secateurs?”And what if I had and caused him serious injury –perhaps even killed him? Unlikely but not impossible.”It is not the first time Humphrys, who confirmed earlier this year that he would no longer host the Today show after 32 years at the helm, has had to chase of an intruder in his home.The first time it was about midnight and he was sound asleep in a top-floor bedroom.There was no one else in the house and he was woken by the landing light being switched on.He leaped out of bed naked and chased the burglary down three flights of stairs.Humphreys said: “When the police arrived they pointed to the large bread knife the burglar had passed on his way upstairs. They did not need to say anything nor did they need to point out the risk I had taken. I got the message.” Veteran BBC presenter John Humphrys has revealed how he chased an intruder out of his back garden armed with a pair of garden secateurs.The 75 year old host of Radio 4’s Today programme revealed his angry confrontation in his Waitrose Weekend magazine column.Admitting it was an “unwise choice” to confront the man rather than immediately call the police, he recalled: “It was 9.15 in the morning and I was on the phone.”I wandered into the kitchen. I looked out of the window into the garden and saw a man emerge from behind a big bush”He hadn’t spotted me. He glanced around furtively and started walking towards the house. It was pretty obvious what he had in mind. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Mass Extinctions Ancient Viruses May Hold Clues to Lifes Origins

first_imgCrenarchaeal viruses come in diverse morphologies, as shown by these silhouettes. According to a new model, because these viruses live in hot, acidic environments, they may have been immune to the mass extinctions throughout Earth’s history, which explains why they have almost nothing in common with today’s more modern organisms. Image credit: Jalasvuori and Bamford. Citation: Mass Extinctions, Ancient Viruses May Hold Clues to Life’s Origins (2009, April 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-04-mass-extinctions-ancient-viruses-clues.html Yellowstone viruses ‘jump’ between hot pools While these events may have led to the extinction of the majority of bacterial and archaeal cells living in cool and neutral-pH environments, the naturally acidic and geothermally heated environments of the crenarchaeal viruses and their hosts would not have been greatly affected. The hyperthermophiles are already used to hot acidic conditions, and geothermal heat would protect them from snowball Earth conditions. The scientists propose, then, that crenarchaeal viruses have simply maintained their originally diverse morphologies, whereas viruses of non-hyperthermophile hosts (including other crenarchaeal viruses) have not. In this view, crenarchaeal viruses in geothermally heated areas would have formed from the primordial gene pool. As previous research has shown, the battle between viruses and the cells they try to infect is thought to be a major force in driving evolution. Under pressure from viruses, cells continually develop mutations to avoid infections, but these mutations usually aren’t useful in other ways (except coincidentally). However, as the new model shows, when an extinction event occurs that kills off many of the cells in an environment, the number of viruses also decreases for lack of hosts. The viruses’ main weapon is having a variety of host recognition proteins (HRPs) that know which cells to attack. But fewer viruses means fewer HRPs, so that surviving cells that are immune to the few remaining viruses now have a chance to evolve in an environment free of virus interference. Under virus-free conditions, cells can inherit mutations that are likely to be more useful in the long run, rather than simply defensive strategies. In this way, extinction events speed up the development of new biological functions that might otherwise be unlikely to emerge. Without extinction events, viruses might control all of Earth’s evolution. “I find the idea that viruses face extinctions along with their hosts important,” said Jalasvuori. “It is widely believed that viruses, in a sense, control the evolution of their hosts and kill the evolutionary winners. Therefore, right after extinction level events, such as massive meteorite impacts, there would be very few viruses to bring the success-story of the winner to an end. Some of the novel evolutionary innovations observed today might have emerged for the first time in the genomes of these winners.”Nevertheless, the hot, acidic environments in which ancient species live is not necessarily a hindrance to evolution, and may in fact be essential to life’s origins. Without such regions, emerging life might not have survived meteorite bombardments and volcanic eruptions that repeatedly wipe out species “farther from the nest.” Yet, as Jalasvuori and Bamford note, their proposal is only a model, and more research is required to see how well the model fits with data and laboratory studies. Overall, the study shows that the diversity of crenarchaeal viruses in geothermally heated areas requires further attention, since the details could help scientists better understand the origins of life. “We have experiments taking place within laboratory microcosmoses, in which we attempt to determine the impact of viruses on the evolution of different aspects of their hosts,” said Jalasvuori. “These cosmoses give us the control over the factors that could have an effect on the evolution of the hosts and thus we should be able to see more precisely the adaptive traits that are caused by viruses and those that are not.”More information: Jalasvuori, Matti and Bamford, Jaana K.H. “Did the Ancient Crenarchael Viruses from the Dawn of Life Survive Exceptionally Well the Eons of Meteorite Bombardment?” Astrobiology, Volume 9, Number 1, 2009. © Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

(PhysOrg.com) — Mass extinctions occur repeatedly, though irregularly, throughout Earth’s history, and occasionally these extinctions have been devastating to life on our planet – or have they? Extinction events have sometimes accelerated the evolution of life on earth by eliminating old dominating species and making room for new ones. A new study takes this idea a step further, showing that life may have never achieved the complexity necessary for the development of advanced multi-cellular organisms without recurring extinction events.center_img Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

In their study, Matti Jalasvuori and Jaana K.H. Bamford of the University of Jyväskylä in Jyväskylä, Finland, have developed a model that helps to explain how life evolved from its origins to the complex cellular systems we see today. Their model is based on a type of virus in the archaeal kingdom called Crenarchaeota, which thrives in extremely hot, acidic environments like those found on the bottom of the ocean, where the viruses infiltrate hosts called acidophilic hyperthermophiles. Because crenarchaeal viruses share almost no similarities with other viruses or organisms, they likely originated very early in Earth’s history.”On a personal note, I find it exciting to think that very early life on Earth might have had a wide variety of peculiar viruses,” Jalasvuori told PhysOrg.com. “We may ask whether their presence is a natural consequence of the processes that led to the origin of the first cells.”In addition to having few similarities with other organisms, crenarchaeal viruses are unexpectedly diverse among themselves, as well. Their diverse morphologies include spheres, light bulbs, bottles, tulips, polyhedrons with tails, and more. In an attempt to explain the origins of these differences, Jalasvuori and Bamford propose that mass extinctions caused by meteorites and volcanoes might have wiped out many cellular organisms, but the hyperthermophiles at the bottom of the ocean would have survived, along with their parasitic viruses. As the scientists explain, both meteorite impacts and volcanic eruptions can warm the Earth. Meteorites boil the oceans and heat the atmosphere, as well as vaporize sulfoxides in rocks upon impact, leading to poisonous acidic rain. Similarly, volcanism in the form of flood basalts increases carbon dioxide levels, causing atmospheric warming and acid rain. While meteorites and volcanoes are considered the two main causes of extinctions, the “snowball Earth” scenario, in which Earth is covered in ice, may have been another extinction mechanism.last_img read more

However, the programs ended up to be too long and too expensive in both cases.To decrease the political risks involved in NASA’s missions, the president reportedly told them that they want to be faster in accomplishing their goals, specifically telling them that they want to get to the moon within five years. Following the vice president’s message at the National Space Council reiterating the five-year goal, the administration amended the president’s budget request to provide NASA with the necessary resources to make their missions to Mars and the moon a reality.NASA’s Artemis mission is focused on getting back to the lunar surface in hopes of establishing a permanent human base on the moon by 2028 and creating an easier path to Mars.President Trump Slams NASA’s Moon MissionsPresident Donald Trump has his eyes set on Mars, recently calling out NASA on Twitter for talking about their efforts to return to the moon.
