Maha to issue GR against illegal pathology labs

first_imgMumbai: The Maharashtra government would issue a resolution (GR) to take action against illegal pathology laboratories in a week, the Legislative Assembly was told Tuesday. Raising the issue of illegal laboratories through a calling attention notice, Sunil Prabhu (Shiv Sena) said nearly 8000 such facilities are currently functioning across the state. He said the government has failed to take action against these illegal laboratories despite directions from the Supreme Court. Prabhu said the government has not even signed a GR despite signing it a year ago. He also said the government did not even have the exact number of legal laboratories operating in the state. To this, Minister of State for Medical Education Ravindra Chavan said the GR would be issued before the end of the ongoing monsoon session of the state legislature–July 2.last_img read more

Faced with clear science real threats countries must remain committed to Paris

Transformation opens door to sustainable futureEchoing Mr. Thomson’s statement, Ms. Espinosa said that it is a necessity to bend the emissions curve, build societies resilient to climate impacts and reduce risk by limiting warming to safe levels.“And the policies that accomplish these goals must be developed with a focus on the sustained wellbeing of people, sound stewardship of the planet and responsible economic growth,” she said, noting that such a transformation opens the door to a future where growing human needs are reconciled against the need for a stable climate and healthy ecosystems. “This challenge is immense. Inaction or insufficient action will destabilize the natural systems that underpin all social and economic development,” she said, urging concerted effort to overcome this challenge.“We have truly entered the era of implementation. It is up to us, collectively as one community of nations, to accelerate action that builds a better future for all,” she said. Secretary-General António Guterres addresses a General Assembly High-Level action event aimed at invigorating political momentum on climate change, highlighting its deep links to the UN 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas INSIDE THIS NEWS STORYStill possible to bend curve on climate change trajectories – General Assembly President Peter ThomsonTransformation opens door to sustainable future – UNFCCC’s Patricia Espinosa“We are dealing with scientific facts, not politics. And the facts are clear. Climate change is a direct threat in itself, and a multiplier of many other threats,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres told a General Assembly High-Level action event aimed at invigorating political momentum on climate change, highlighting its deep links to the UN 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.Mr. Guterres said his messages to the meeting are simple.“First, climate change is an unprecedented and growing threat – to peace and prosperity and the same in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Second, addressing climate change is a massive opportunity that we cannot afford to miss,” he said. The Paris Agreement on climate change adopted in December 2015 is unique in its universality, with every single government having signed it. The pact entered force in less than a year. To date more than 130 Parties have ratified it, and the numbers are growing monthly. The countries that supported the Paris Agreement are the same that adopted the 2030 Agenda – they comprise all UN Member States.The reason for this consensus is clear: all nations recognize that implementing the 2030 Agenda goes hand-in-glove with limiting global temperature rise and increasing climate resilience.VIDEO: “We must act, urgently, and decisively, now” in the fight against climate change, UN chief António Guterres told a General Assembly high-level event today.Mr. Guterres said that last year was once again the hottest on record. Sea ice is at a historic low and sea levels at a historic high. These trends are indisputable, he stressed, explaining that consequences of climate change include food insecurity, water scarcity, poverty and displacement. Tackling climate change is a tremendous opportunity for Governments and business as there is no trade-off between a healthy environment and a healthy economy.“We can have both. Green business is good business,” he said. Climate action is a necessity and can advance the attainment of sustainable development goals. “How we go about it can be the subject of scientific and political debate. But there is no question that we must act, urgently and decisively, now,” Mr. Guterres said. “And it remains the only viable way to safeguard peace, prosperity and a sustainable future.” Also addressing the event, were Peter Thomson, President of the General Assembly, and Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.VIDEO:UN General Assembly President urges climate action for welfare of future generationsStill possible to bend curve on climate change trajectoriesMr. Thomson said that he had recently met with Petteri Taalas, the Secretary-General of the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO), who confirmed that the world is currently on track towards a 3 to 4°C increase in global temperatures.“I have always understood […] that once we reach the 3°C – 4°C range, humanity’s survival on this planet will be put in jeopardy,” he said. Cyclone Winston and Cyclone Pam which devastated Fiji and Vanuatu in recent years were among the strongest tropical cyclones to ever make landfall in the Southern Hemisphere. Fiji, an island nation from which Mr. Thomson hails, has already begun relocating low-lying villages to higher ground, away from the encroaching shoreline and the rising threat of storm surges. “While the prognosis is dire, the scientific community assures us it is possible to bend the curve on current trajectories, if we work together to curb the growth of global greenhouse gas emissions,” Mr. Thomson said, reiterating his call for all parties to the Paris Agreement to ratify it without delay and for those that have already done so to deliver on their commitments.

Motorola Xoom Superbowl Ad Takes on iPad

first_imgBack in December, Motorola let the world know it was planning to take on the iPad at ces the following month. The company released a quick and goofy CGI ad that took more than a few potshots at Apple’s wildly popular tablet. A few weeks later, the company debuted the Xoom, the first tablet to showcase the long awaited Android 3.0, Honeycomb, garnering rave reviews from around the industry.Motorola is offering up another computer-generated video, again devoid of the actual device, strangely. The video will air during the Superbowl, but the company is showcasing it online now (check it out, after the jump).The company references Apple’s own iconic Superbowl ad [above], opening with the text, “2011 looks a lot like 1984. One authority, one design, oneway to work.” The ad largely revolves around an image of the earth wearing those familiar white Apple earbuds.“It’s time for more choices,” the ad implores, offering a laundry list of Xoom features, including a dual-core processor, 1080p video playback, front and rear facing cameras, 4G upgrades, and Honeycomb itself.Is the Xoom ad destined to be as iconic as Apple’s “1984” ad? Not even close. But it does get its point across.AdChoices广告last_img read more

Skitch releases Windows 8 Metro app

first_imgThere’s no Skitch app for Windows Phone yet, though you might think there would be. Evernote has been available in the Marketplace for quite some time, after all. But here’s some good news for those of you who have been waiting patiently for the popular annotation app to arrive: the fact that there’s now a Skitch Windows 8 Metro app is a good indication that one is on the way to Windows Phone in the near future.Those of you running the Windows 8 Consumer Preview can zip over to the Store and download Skitch right now. It’s designed in accordance with Microsoft’s Metro app guidance, with a toolbar along the bottom providing access to the core Skitch functions. To kick things off, you can open an existing picture on your computer, work from scratch on a blank canvas, or capture an image from your camera. At the far right of the bar is the familiar Evernote elephant icon. Click it, enter your credentials, and you’ll be able to save your creations directly to your Evernote cloud storage. Opening files from Evernote isn’t yet supported, though if you’ve got the app installed you can open your local copies in Skitch and changes will be uploaded automatically.The usual Skitch tools are supplied: shapes (line, rectangle, rounded rectangle, and circle), text, marker, and the all-important arrow. Eight colors and four line widths are available, and elements can be modified and moved after they’re placed on the canvas.The Skitch Metro app for Windows 8 performs quite well, is very stable, and a very handy tool to add to your Start Screen. Now that’s they’ve got a version for larger Metro displays that’s pretty polished, it shouldn’t be long before a scaled-down Skitch for Windows Phone arrives.last_img read more

iPhone 6 and iOS 7 show up in developer logs

first_imgLet’s start 2013 off with something new and exciting, shall we? No? Well how about something we all knew was coming? It looks like iOS developers are seeing references to iOS 7 and the next iPhone show up in their logs, sparking the first in the oncoming storm of leaks leading to the next iPhone.Apple releases a new iPhone every year, and that phone comes with the latest version of iOS installed. Apple also follows a two year hardware profile that leads us to believe that the next iPhone will be dubbed the iPhone 5S. Given the stigma that has followed the last two “S” releases, specifically that the phones were merely incremental upgrades of the previous release, Apple could be looking to mix it up this year. We’ve heard several rumors that suggest Apple is planning an early release of the next iPhone this year, dramatically decreasing the full year Apple users have enjoyed between hardware releases.The release of the iPhone 5 was the farthest thing from a mystery Apple has ever managed. By the time the launch day was here, we had seen nearly every part that went into the phone, including several leaks of the casing fully assembled. It was certainly not as exciting as a completed unit being left in a bar or anything, but we knew just about everything we could well before the unveiling. We also saw evidence of internal testing in the form of referenced to iOS 6 showing up in logs as Apple employees tested apps on their hardware. It looks like the same is now being done with iOS 7 and the next iPhone.It is unlikely that this gives us any information regarding the release of the next iPhone, aside from possibly indicating that we can expect one in the first half of this year. Despite the many rumors suggesting that Apple and Samsung are battling internally to one up the other in terms of release date, externally there’s nothing to confirm a release period for the next iPhone or the Samsung Galaxy S4.via TNWlast_img read more

Indias top lender moves court seeking arrest of Vijay Mallya exchairman of

first_imgWithin less than 10 days of London-based Diageo agreeing to pay $75 million to UB Group promoter Vijay Mallya to exit from Diageo-owned United Spirits, India’s biggest lender State Bank of India (SBI) has moved a debt recovery court seeking Mallya’s arrest and seizure of his passport to recover Rs 7,800 crore that he owes to certain Indian lenders, mainly state-owned banks.SBI, which heads a consortium of 17 lenders that lent money to UB Group company Kingfisher Airlines (KFA), moved the Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT) in Bengaluru against Mallya in order to recover the money from him, PTI reported. The agency, quoting sources, said that SBI has approached the DRT for getting Mallya’s passport impounded and getting him arrested, in addition to “securing the lenders’ first right on the payout from Diageo and getting full disclosure of his assets in the country and abroad.”Mallya and KFA together owe about Rs. 7,800 crore to the consortium, of which SBI’s share is about Rs. 1,600 crore. KFA has been grounded since October 2012 for defaulting on loan repayments.Earlier, on Feb. 11, another state-owned bank, Punjab National Bank, had declared another UB Group company, United Breweries (Holdings), “wilful defaulter” as part of its crackdown on borrowers who had failed to repay loans to the bank.KFA owes Rs 1,600 crore to PNB, which published a list of about 900 defaulters who owe it about Rs 11,000 crore.United Breweries (Holdings) and Vijay Mallya had stood guarantors for the loans taken by KFA.Shares of United Spirits, United Breweries (Holdings) and United Breweries were trading down on Indian stock exchanges on Thursday. United Sprits was down 2.13 percent at Rs 2,454.85, United Breweries (Holdings) was trading at a loss of 3.91 percent at Rs 20.90 at around 12.50 p.m. Vijay Mallya owns IPL cricket team Royal Challengers Banglore (RCB), which has New Zealander Daniel Vettori as the head coach and the likes of Virat Kohli, Shane Watson, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle in its 26-member squad for IPL 2016.The deal with Diageo also provides for sponsorship of Force India Formula 1 team, the company said in its statement on Feb. 25, 2016.”The financial terms of today’s agreement with Dr Mallya provide for a payment of $75 million (approximately £53 million) to Dr Mallya over a five year period…Diageo has also extended Smirnoff’s sponsorship of the Force India Formula 1 team of which Dr Mallya is team principal and part-owner for the next five seasons. The cost of this sponsorship continues to be $15 million (approximately £11 million) per season.”last_img read more

2 years after spying flap US Brazil seek to turn the page

first_img Parents, stop beating yourself up Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Brazil pledged to curb illegal deforestation and expand renewable energy use as it gears up to unveil its contribution to a global climate treaty that Obama has been championing and world leaders expect to finalize this year. Although the announcement stopped short of a commitment to bring deforestation down to zero, as many environmentalists wanted, the pledge offered some of the first signs of how Brazil intends to curb its greenhouse gas emissions as part of the treaty.The South American nation also vowed to restore and reforest 12 million hectares — an area roughly the size of England — by 2030. About three-quarters of Brazil’s greenhouse gas emissions come from destruction in the Amazon rainforest, which acts as a giant absorber of carbon dioxide.Both the U.S. and Brazil announced plans to increase the share of renewable, non-hydropower electricity sources to 20 percent by 2030. That will require tripling the amount of renewable energy on the U.S. electricity grid, while doubling it in Brazil. The White House said it was counting on gains from Obama’s controversial power plant emission rules to meet the new goal.From its inception on Monday with a visit to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, Rousseff’s stay in Washington appeared designed to show that the U.S. and Brazil were no longer saddled by the spying flap that drew headlines and outrage from Brazilian lawmakers in 2013 and 2014. WASHINGTON (AP) — Two years after revelations about U.S. spying frayed ties between their countries, President Barack Obama and visiting Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff publicly closed that chapter Tuesday, declaring that the relationship between the U.S. and Brazil is on an upward swing.Rousseff canceled a 2013 visit to Washington in the wake of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden’s disclosures that the U.S. tapped her intercepted emails and phone calls, and U.S. leaders have been working to repair the damage ever since. On Tuesday, the two leaders were all smiles in the East Room of the White House, trading bets about the 2016 Summer Olympics, to be held in Rio de Janeiro. Comments   Share   And after an Oval Office meeting and joint news conference with Obama on Tuesday, Rousseff headed to the State Department for lunch, where she was toasted by Vice President Joe Biden — the point person in the White House’s charm offensive to regain Rousseff’s trust.Rousseff had been scheduled to be honored with a state dinner in October 2013, an honor meant to demonstrate the growing importance of Latin America’s largest nation and a particular nod to Rousseff, who adopted a friendlier foreign policy toward the U.S. than her predecessor when she took office in 2001.That visit was indefinitely postponed after Rousseff learned the NSA had not only read her emails but also mapped out her closest aides and tracked patterns of how those aides communicated with one another and with third parties.“There will always be some frictions,” Obama conceded. But he praised Brazil as a global power and called it an “absolutely indispensable partner” in U.S. efforts to promote its interests and security around the world.___Associated Press writers Adriana Gomez Licon and Brad Brooks in Rio De Janerio contributed to this report.___Reach Josh Lederman on Twitter at http://twitter.com/joshledermanAP 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies “I believe President Obama,” Rousseff said, referring to the U.S. pledge to no longer engage in intrusive spying on friendly nations.“I trust her completely,” Obama rejoined.Both leaders acknowledged that the NSA leaks had strained the relationship between two of the hemisphere’s largest powers. Even still, Rousseff said the conditions today are different than they were in 2013, noting that Obama has since told her that should he ever need confidential information about Brazil, he’ll pick up the phone and call her directly.“Countries do go through crises and difficulties. It’s just natural,” Rousseff said through a translator.Aiming to move past those difficulties, Obama and Rousseff put a spotlight on areas of growing cooperation between the U.S. and Brazil as she wrapped up her two-day visit to the White House. The leaders touted a recent defense agreement as well as a U.S. decision Monday to begin allowing fresh beef imports from all 14 of Brazil’s states — a longstanding Brazilian request.Yet the capstone of the attempt to show common cause was a joint announcement on climate change, an issue Rousseff deemed “one of the central challenges of the 21st century.”center_img The vital role family plays in society Sponsored Stories Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Top Stories Copyright © The Associated Press.
