Kolkata court summons Shashi Tharoor

first_imgA Kolkata court has summoned Congress leader and former Union minister Shashi Tharoor for his remark that the BJP will pave the way for creation of a “Hindu Pakistan” if voted to power again, lawyer-petitioner Sumeet Chowdhury said here on Saturday.Mr. Chowdhury moved a petition before a Metropolitan Magistrate Court, alleging that Mr. Tharoor’s comment created disharmony and was “a deliberate and malicious act intended to outrage religious feelings.” Mr. Tharoor was sued under Section 2 of the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (1) M. Dasgupta directed issuance of the summons to the Congress leader through post and on his Twitter handle. The court directed him to appear before it on August 14.In the petition, Mr. Chowdhury said Mr. Tharoor had refused to apologise. In Thiruvananthapuram, Mr. Tharoor said at a meeting that if the BJP returned to power, it would rewrite the Constitution and turn India into a “Hindu Pakistan”.last_img read more

Mike Gundy ‘Disappointed’ In Rules Officials of CMU-Oklahoma State Game

first_imgOn Sunday afternoon Mike Gundy released a statement about the fiasco at Boone Pickens Stadium on Saturday. He continued to blame himself but actually piled on the referees who called the game (as he should have).“I’m disappointed in myself that I called a play that could have been interpreted as intentional grounding,” wrote Gundy. “That play has been in our playbook for 12 years now and intentional grounding and an untimed down after the last play of the game never even crossed my mind. Of course in hindsight, I wish I would have done it differently, but in the big picture, the game should have been over.“While I’m disappointed in myself, I am also disappointed that we had 10 rules officials who didn’t properly apply the rule. I give credit to Central Michigan for coming up with a great play and executing it as well as they did.”In Gundy’s defense, not calling intentional grounding at the end of the game might be considered an unwritten rule in coaching circles. It certainly didn’t apply to Jameis Winston when Oklahoma State played Florida State a few years ago. reason for reaching out to you with this statement is this – we have another game on Saturday and letting the end of the Central Michigan game linger into this week would not help our team in any way,” continued Gundy. “I want this to be our final official comment on the end of the Central Michigan game, so we can close the book on it and move forward to Pittsburgh. In our program, we talk all the time about controlling the things we can control and not getting caught up in the things we can’t control.“We can control how we focus on and prepare for Pittsburgh. We can’t control the decisions that were made Saturday, so I do not believe it benefits our coaches or players to dwell on them and re-hash them beyond what we already did during post-game interviews, the comments that our athletic director made yesterday and now with this statement from me today.”Good stuff from the head man. Regret, disappointment in himself and the officials and looking ahead to next week. OSU might not have lost as much as you thought (which we will talk about later on).If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

The management decided to release Malinga from participating in the Super Provincial; since he would get an opportunity to play with much stronger opposition in IPL; which consist of international players,” read a statement from Sri Lanka Cricket.Earlier Malinga’s IPL availability was under a cloud with the Sri Lankan cricket board insisting on all players participating in a domestic Super Provincial one day tournament (scheduled between April 4-11) to stay in contention for the World Cup.But back channel talks between Sri Lanka cricket, BCCI and Mumbai Indians coached by Mahela Jaywardene has done the trick.SLC Chief selector Ashantha de Mel was earlier quoted saying that Malinga’s place in the World Cup bound squad is guaranteed, so he is free to participate in the IPL.”We have no issues if he goes to IPL – the board had given him a no-objection certificate already, so he’s free to go. Anyway he has been one of our best bowlers in one dayers, so there’s no question about his place in the team,” Mel said.”Anyway he has been one of our best bowlers in one dayers, so there’s no question about his place in the team,” Mel added.With Bumrah’s workload under a scanner, particularly following his on field injury during the Mumbai Indians opening game, he could be seen sitting out in some IPL games.

Liberals signal intent to impose deadlines on 11 bills sitting in the

first_imgOTTAWA — Tempers are flaring in Canada’s chamber of sober second thought, triggered by a government move to impose deadlines on almost a dozen bills to ensure they pass before Parliament rises in June.The Liberal government’s representative in the Senate wants the upper chamber to agree to his motion that would set specific timelines for debates and votes on 11 bills to break up what he describes as a legislative logjam.Sen. Peter Harder, the government’s representative in the Senate, is blaming obstructionist tactics by Conservative senators to slow down legislation already passed by the House of Commons.The list of bills to be fast-tracked includes Bill C-69, which would impose new rules for environmental assessments of energy projects, as well as C-71, which aims to tighten certain regulations on gun ownership laws, including expanded background checks.The government has the ability to put time limits on debate, but usually applies the measure to a single bill or piece of legislation.Sen. Larry Smith, the Conservative leader in the Senate, says what the government proposes is an anti-democratic “time allocation on steroids” and is vowing to use every parliamentary tool available until Harder backs down.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgAdvertisement Twitter PETA’s assistant manager of clothing campaigns Christina Sewell told The Canadian Press the ads were meant to run for four weeks, but were up for less than 24 hours in September.Jackets are on display at the Canada Goose Inc. showroom in Toronto. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Aaron Vincent Elkaim“Astral let us know they had to pull the ads because they had too many numerous complaints,” she said.A spokesperson for Bell Media Inc., which owns Astral, confirmed it removed the ads because they were not in line with a part of the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards that restricts ads from disparaging organizations or causing public ridicule.PETA claims it is not violating the standards.“PETA’s position remains that its right to free expression includes the right to place this particular artwork – in its current form – on city property, and that the removal of its artwork violated this right,” the group said in a letter it sent to the city, Bell Media and Astral Media on Thursday.Asked about the ads, City of Toronto spokesperson Eric Holmes said Astral “is responsible for applying the standards and any decisions related to the approval and removal of advertising content on these assets.”Sewell, who called the ads “benign,” said PETA doesn’t have a timeline for how soon it will take legal action if the ads aren’t reposted, but is committed to carrying out their threat.A Canada Goose spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.The company has long been in PETA’s crosshairs.PETA members, sometimes dressed as coyotes, have protested in front of the apparel company’s stores and have repeatedly billed Canada Goose as a perpetrator of “shameless cruelty.”“There are so many cruelty-free alternatives out there and things that are made out of plants or synthetic. Fur is hugely detrimental to the environment,” Sewell said, noting that Canada Goose hasn’t gotten in touch with PETA since it unveiled the ads.“We have been campaigning for several years now and we are very hard pressed to get a direct response from the company.”Canada Goose previously fought complaints about its use of fur, saying that it is committed to the ethical treatment of animals, that “having fur trim around a jacket hood disrupts airflow which helps protect the face from frostbite” and that it uses goose down because it is “one of the world’s best natural insulators.”“We do not condone any willful mistreatment, neglect, or acts that maliciously cause animals undue suffering,” the company’s website says. “Our standards for the sourcing and use of fur, down and wool reflect our commitment that materials are sourced from animals that are not subject to willful mistreatment or undue harm.”BY TARA DESCHAMPS | THE CANADIAN PRESS Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is threatening to sue the City of Toronto and Astral Media for removing anti-Canada Goose ads.The animal rights group said Friday that it will commence legal action against the city and Astral, if they do not repost ads the group paid to put up in September that criticized the Toronto-based luxury jacket maker for using goose down and coyote fur in its jackets.The ads featured images of the animals with captions saying “I’m a living being, not a piece of fur trim” and “I’m a living being, not jacket filling” and were put up at bus shelters between Canada Goose’s headquarters and the home of the company’s CEO, Dani Reiss.

2 former Buckeyes headed to MLS

Former Ohio State men’s soccer teammates Matt Gold and Konrad Warzycha are headed for Major League Soccer. Defensive midfielder Gold and attacking midfielder Warzycha heard their names called in the third round of the MLS SuperDraft. The two were selected by Toronto FC and Sporting Kansas City, respectively, making them the 11th and 12th players in program history to earn MLS draft selections. Soccer pundits didn’t think highly of Gold’s draft stock, but Toronto selected him with the 43rd overall pick. The selection confirmed Gold’s suspicion that he and Warzycha might “do better than what was expected.” Gold described his performance at the MLS Player Combine as an up-and-down affair, saying, “The first day, I couldn’t have played better; the second day was the opposite; and the third day was somewhere in between.” Despite not being sure how much he helped himself at the combine, Gold got the news he had been waiting for. “I was at a loss for words when I found out,” Gold said. “I’m really excited.” Warzycha, the 46th overall pick, was also excited while describing his emotions about being drafted in spite of a self-described “average” combine performance. “You never see this day coming,” Warzycha said. “It’s surreal; I’m on cloud nine.” In joining Sporting KC, Warzycha will reunite with former OSU teammate Roger Espinoza. They spoke shortly after today’s selection was announced. “I got a chance to talk to Roger, and he told me about the new stadium in Kansas City and the fans,” Warzycha said. “I think this is going to be a great fit.” read more

The seasonending injury which could have been a lot worse

first_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article HAVING BEEN IN that situation before, David Meyler feared the worst when he went down injured as Hull City trained a couple of days before their Premier League visit to Stoke earlier this month.In 2010, Meyler was ruled out for six months after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while playing for Sunderland against Manchester United. He lost another three months of his career by damaging the medial ligament in the same knee shortly after making his comeback.It was the left knee that caused him problems a fortnight ago, but again the cruciate was the concern. With Hull battling relegation and an important World Cup qualifier on the horizon for Ireland, it wasn’t the ideal time to be carried off the training ground for a scan.“I was one-on-one with the goalkeeper and he’s caught my standing leg. It was a bit of a freak accident but these things do happen,” Meyler explains.“I knew something wasn’t right. I was just hoping that it wasn’t the ACL. The physios were on the pitch within 10 seconds. I couldn’t even look down. I was thinking it was gone.“But thankfully I got it confirmed later that the ACL was fully intact, so I was very relieved. It’s a medial ligament injury. I was lucky in that sense. It could have been a lot worse.”Meyler was operated on by renowned surgeon Andy Williams in London last week. With his knee in a brace and crutches required to keep him mobile, he won’t play again this season for Hull, who are two points outside the relegation zone with four games remaining. Meyler challenges Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford. Source: Martin RickettThe 27-year-old midfielder will also definitely miss Ireland’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Austria at the Aviva Stadium on 11 June. Given how well he performed against the same opposition during the win in Vienna in November, being ruled out of the visit of the Austrians to Dublin is a significant blow for the Corkman.“When the injury happened we had six Premier League games left, which I really wanted to play a part in. With Ireland, I played in the last two games — two very important games — against Austria and Wales. I felt I contributed well and the manager was happy,” Meyler says.“Getting the win away to Austria was huge and I’d obviously love to play in the home game as well. I’m disappointed to be missing it but I think we’ve got good depth in the squad to keep us on track for qualifying for Russia.”Meyler’s injury also robs Ireland manager Martin O’Neill of another option at right-back. With Seamus Coleman a long-term absentee after suffering a broken leg against Wales last month, O’Neill may have considered Meyler as an alternative — just as he did for the 1-1 draw away to Germany during the Euro 2016 qualifiers.Meyler: “The manager has asked me to do a job at right-back before, so in the back of his mind he might have known that he had me as an option. I’d give my left arm to play for Ireland. If he wanted me to play at right-back, in goal, up front or wherever, I’d go out and give him 100%.”Meyler remained in regular contact with Coleman to offer his support during a challenging time for his team-mate. It wasn’t long before the Ireland captain could return the favour. Meyler looks on in the aftermath of Neil Taylor’s horror challenge on Seamus Coleman. Source: Niall Carson“I’ve spoken to him a few times over text. Seamus, being the type of person that he is, was on to me when I was having surgery and he was all positive. He’s in good spirits but I was devastated for him,” Meyler explains.“I’ve had major setbacks before and I’ve come back from them. This is his first one but the type of lad he is, the type of character he is, if there’s one man in football I wouldn’t worry about, it’s Seamus.“People ask will he be the same player when he comes back, but I think he’ll be even better. He’ll be a big loss to the Irish team, though, because he’s arguably the best right-back we’ve ever produced. I’d have him right up there with Denis Irwin.”Recalling the tackle from Wales defender Neil Taylor that ended Coleman’s involvement Ireland’s qualifying campaign, Meyler says: “I was in shock. Seamus is one of my close friends in camp — myself, Seamus, and the two James’ [McCarthy and McClean] would be very pally.“We were just devastated for him. Seamus is almost like our superhero in a way; the way he lives his life and the type of pro he is. Anyone who knows Seamus Coleman won’t doubt that he’ll be back stronger from this.”As for his own absence, Meyler knows that watching on from the sidelines during an important spell for both club and country won’t be easy. Ireland manager Martin O’Neill congratulates Meyler after Ireland’s victory over Austria in November. Source: John Walton“It’s hard. Of course it is,” he says. “You’re watching the games and you’re kicking every ball. But we’re professionals and dealing with setbacks like this is part of the game. You have to be able to handle those challenges and come back better. That’s what I intend to do.”Meyler’s aim is to return for Hull City’s opening game of next season. In the meantime, he can only hope that his next competitive outing will be in the Premier League instead of the Championship.‘Time will tell if we decide to pursue it any more’ – Preston boss on Seán MaguireKeane: People are recognising now that the League of Ireland is a good platform Saturday 29 Apr 2017, 12:00 PM David Meyler in possession for Ireland during last month’s goalless draw with Wales at the Aviva Stadium.

See How This VR Dev Recreated Explorable Apartment For Oculus Quest

first_img Neil Gaiman VR Experience ‘Wolves in the Walls’ Wins Primetime Emmy Virtual reality developer Mohen Leo decided to recreate his apartment in VR using Unreal assets to use with his new Oculus Quest, and the results are pretty dang cool. Leo then posted videos and explanations on Twitter, as spotted by Digg.Using his phone as a camera, under his nose, Leo tracked his movement around his actual apartment while walking “virtually” through his VR-recreation of his apartment. It’s the kind of thing you really need to see for yourself, so check out the short video demonstration below. Related Follow-up to yesterday’s Oculus Quest test:This technique is often used in “location-based VR”. The objects you are supposed to touch (in this case the seats) match the real world, while a gap/drop keeps you away from things that don’t match (e.g. door frame). #vr #gamedev #ue4— mohen (@mohenleo) June 4, 2019Leo gave a quick step-by-step of his process on Twitter. For more on the Oculus Quest and the future of VR, check out this Variety feature. This is a pretty exciting experiment, as VR use that is tied to accurate dimensions in the real world (“location-based AR,” as Leo explains) means movement in, say, a VR video game will feel less restrictive. The user can make full use of the space they’re in, without being led straight into objects that the VR world can’t account for, like a coffee table that’s in the way or having to go into a separate room. Check out the demo Leo posted below on how he tied his physical space to a VR space that’s not modeled after his apartment, in which gaps are used to keep users away from objects that should be avoided. First Look: Trailer for Venice-bound VR Experience ‘The Line’ (EXCLUSIVE) So how did he do it? To make a long explanation short, Leo first took many photos of his empty San Francisco apartment to create a photogrammetry scan of the space.“The first steps date back two years, when I moved into an apartment in San Francisco,” Leo told Digg. “My rooms were completely empty, so I thought, ‘What if I used VR to visualize what different furniture options would look like before I actually buy the pieces?’”Leo then used Unreal Engine 4 and assets from the Unreal Marketplace (Assetsville Town pack, specifically) to put the virtual furniture in his virtual apartment space with accurate dimensions compared to his real space and furniture.
