We will study it and then details will follow,” East Bengal general secretariat Kalyan Majumdar said. Mohun Bagan general secretary Anjan Mitra said theyre yet to decide and the “discussions are on”. However, a source closely tracking the development said they have been in discussions for three months. “They know what ITB holds for them. Its about making the call,” he said, saying “two international clubs from Europe have also shown interest in ITB and had discussion with ISL office.” Football Sports Development Limited, the ISL organisers, have floated the tender through Invitation to Bid on May 12 and the deadline for submission of documents is May 25.

first_imgHighlights from the news file for Thursday, Dec. 21———MEMORIAL HELD FOR SHERMANS: Thousands of people attended a memorial on Thursday for billionaire philanthropists Barry and Honey Sherman, who were found dead in their Toronto home nearly a week ago. The Shermans’ children say coping with the speculation surrounding their parents’ deaths has compounded the pain of losing their parents. Police have said the Shermans died of “ligature neck compression” and have called the deaths suspicious. The Shermans’ son Jonathon says it has all been a terrible, shocking adjustment.———OPPOSITION WANT TRUDEAU TO REPAY SOME CHRISTMAS VACATION COSTS: The Opposition parties say Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should repay all or part of the transportation and security costs for a Christmas vacation to the Aga Khan’s private Bahamian island last year. The trip cost taxpayers more than $200,000. Ethics commissioner Mary Dawson found the prime minister violated four different provisions of the Conflict of Interest Act. The Tories and New Democrats say Trudeau owes it to taxpayers to repay the bill. The Prime Minister’s Office says Trudeau paid the cost of his and his family’s flights to and from Nassau but would not disclose the precise tab.———MAN FOUND GUILTY OF KILLING NOVA SCOTIA POLICE OFFICER: A Halifax jury has found a man guilty of punching and strangling Nova Scotia police officer Catherine Campbell. The jury rejected Christopher Garnier’s claim that the off-duty officer died accidentally during rough sex. Garnier was convicted of second degree murder, which comes with an automatic life sentence. A hearing to determine Garnier’s parole eligibility is scheduled for May.———HELICOPTER CRASH MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY LOOSE TOOL BAG: The Transportation Safety Board says it appears that an improperly secured tool bag hit the rear rotor of a helicopter that subsequently crashed in eastern Ontario last week. The board says its preliminary investigation into the crash suggested the tool kit carried on a platform outside the helicopter owned by electrical utility Hydro One was the main cause of the deadly incident.———CANADA AVOIDS CRITICIZING TRUMP OVER EMBASSY MOVE: Canada abstained from a vote in the United Nations that criticized U.S. President Donald Trump for his decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The UN voted 128-9 in favour of a resolution declaring the U.S. president’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital to be null and void. Canada was among the 35 countries that abstained. Canada was left in a difficult position because Trump had threatened to retaliate against countries that supported the resolution.———COUGAR HUNTING IN ALBERTA POPULAR, BIOLOGIST SAYS: A wildlife biologist says cougar hunting is not only legal but quite popular in Alberta during the late fall and early winter. Mark Boyce of the University of Alberta says there are at least 2,500 cougars in the province. He says there is an annual quota of up to 155 cougars that can be killed by residents each winter season in Alberta. Another 30 cats can be hunted by non-residents. The issue surfaced after an Alberta-based host of an outdoor TV show triggered outrage online when he bragged about hunting a big cat earlier this month.———FIRST NATIONS ELDER CRITICAL OF CANADIAN TIRE SEARCH: The family of a First Nations elder says he was humiliated when a Canadian Tire employee in Saskatchewan stopped him and searched him this week. Gordon Albert of the Sweetgrass First Nation was in North Battleford shopping for a gift with his family. Albert’s wife Marlene says an anti-theft device at the door beeped as they left and Albert was searched. The store manager denied race had anything to do what happened but Albert’s son disagrees.———FORMER MONTREAL CONDUCTOR ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ASSAULT: Four performers say renowned conductor Charles Dutoit sexually assaulted them, telling The Associated Press he physically restrained them, forced his body against theirs and caused other non-consensual contact. The Swiss-born maestro has not responded to multiple efforts to contact him. The performers — three opera singers and a classical musician — contend the attacks took place between 1985 and 2010 in five different cities in the U.S. Dutoit, who had a 25-year run with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, did not immediately respond to multiple attempts by the AP to reach him.———last_img read more

Her visit on Friday will spotlight a situation which the UN has stressed that the world should know more about – the plight of the children caught up in the 20-year-old conflict between the marauding Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebels and the Ugandan army.Earlier this year, UNICEF estimated that some 20,000 children have been abducted, as many as 12,000 of them since 2002, while the UN World Food Programme (WFP) has on its books 1.4 million internally displaced persons (IDPs), along with 192,000 refugees.On Thursday, Ms. Veneman will join UN Millennium Project Director Jeffrey Sachs in visiting Sauri, a north Kenyan village of nearly 5,000 people near Lake Victoria, to take part in a harvest festival and observe how integrated approaches to development are improving children’s lives.She will also visit UNICEF-supported child survival programmes in Wajir, a district in Kenya’s arid north-east.This will be her second trip to Africa during her first 90 days in office and comes after a stop in Paris, France, to attend the board meeting of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization. There she said, “Progress for African children is essential if the world is to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). There is much more to be done.” read more

Art students fail to recognise famous painter as they spend too much

first_imgMr Uglow warned that whilst art history in universities is an academic pursuit, making it inevitable that students will spend much of their time reading scholarly material, it was vital that students spend time “just looking, and to take pleasure in looking.”Mr Uglow said the course at Manchester is dedicated to connoisseurship, something he says  as become largely extinct in university departments since the 1980s.“For me, connoisseurship is the detailed analysis of style and technique with the aim of identifying authorship,” said Mr Uglow. Mr Grosvenor presents Fake or Fortune on the BBC Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. “My advice was therefore simple: stop reading about art, and go and look at some.”Mr Grosvenor warned that while art history degrees can provide a valuable foundation of knowledge, they are lacking as preparation for the practicalities of working in the art world – whether in galleries, museums or auction houses. The majority of students in Mr Grosvenor’s lecture said wanted to pursue a career as art dealers. Most students would expect to be praised for spending their university years attempting to read every book on their chosen subject in the library.But too much time spent reading instead of simply looking has left some history of art students unable to identify one of the world’s greatest painters.Bendor Grosvenor, the art historian and TV presenter, has told how he recently found that just one out of a class of 40 students from one of the UK’s leading universities was able to identify the work of Titian – the greatest painter of 16th-century Venice, according to the National Gallery.Mr Grosvenor, who presents BBC4’s Britain’s Lost Masterpieces and appears on the BBC1 art programme Fake or Fortune? visited the university to speak to final-year art history students and says he was disappointed to find their connoisseurship skills lacking.He said: “Only one of them could identify the artist [Titian]. I asked what they had all been doing for the past few years? ‘Reading’ came the unenthusiastic answer. The Britain’s Lost Masterpieces presenter was shocked students were not able to recognise the work of TitianCredit: Laura Radford/ Genericscenter_img “For many other art historians, it’s about exercising taste and elitist snobbery, it’s corrupted by market forces and has a distasteful focus on monetary value, it’s pedantic and snide, deeply patriarchal, and terribly old fashioned. But I would say this has more to do with connoisseurs then connoisseurship.” “To my surprise, the most popular choice of career was to be an art dealer,” he wrote in his diary for The Art Newspaper.“Alas, the one student able to identify the Titian wanted to do something else entirely.”According to Mr Grosvenor, two universities in the UK offer an art history degree that includes a dedicated course on connoisseurship.One is led by Luke Uglow of Manchester University. Mr Uglow told The Telegraph: “In my opinion, Titian is the greatest painter that ever lived, and along with Michelangelo, one of the first great artists.“Titian’s work is not as iconic as Michelangelo’s, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the general public failed to recognise one of his paintings, but for art history students it’s definitely a disappointment.” Mr Grosvenor presents Fake or Fortune on the BBCCredit: Antiques Roadshow/ PA The Britain's Lost Masterpieces presenter was shocked students were not able to recognise the work of Titianlast_img read more

The final three days of the Olympic cycle will give the answers about the teams and players who will become a part of the handball history. Some historical moments will be seen in semi-final and clashes during the final day.Here are the 7 REASONS TO NOT MISS THE HANDBALL ACTION IN RIOFRENCH TEAM TO SET NEW OLYMPIC RECORD – GOLDEN HAT-TRICKHandball history didn’t witnessed a domination or era of one team like this generation of the French guys. So many titles, awards, year by year, but the most impressive is the chance to win the third Olympic gold in a row. That didn’t happened in handball, and hardly, you can find it in other team’s sport expect USA basketball dream team.LOOKING FOR ICELANDIC COACHING FINALAn era of fantastic Icelandic coaches could have perfect conclusion with two national teams with Icelanders on the bench in the final. Gudmundur Gudmundsson (Iceland) and Dagur Sigurdsson (Germany) are the best examples of the Icelandic handball phenomen, and not only handball.DAGUR WALKS – LINO FOOTSTEPSEx-Croatian NT coach Lino Červar overtook the „losers“ after their debacle at EHF EURO 2002 when they finished 16. In less than two years, Červar made from Balić, Lacković, Vori the World Champions in Portugal 2003 and Olympic champions in 2004. Could Dagur Sigurdsson do the same with the Germans. First two steps, absence from the TOP teams group for many years and EURO 2016 title, are already made.THE FIRST GOLDEN RUSH FOR POLISH OR DANISH HANDBALL?Denmark have never win medal at Olympic Games despite they have been twice European champions with their girls who know how nice is to be at the TOP at Olympics. Poland have only a bronze medal won 40 years ago in Montreal 1976. Two strong handball nations in the last 10 years fighting to go somewhere where they have never been…KAROL BIELECKI – ONE STORYThe Polish left back lost his eye during friendly match against Croatia in 2010.

Crucial thing was the start of work with Talant Dujshebaev, who found the way to bring Karol back, where he was before accident. With only one eye, but so strong, the real example of athlete and fighter…DUJSHEBAEV LOOKING FOR DOUBLE CROWNThere were no example in handball world that one coach win two most important titles – EHF Champions League (Vive Tauron Kielce) and Olympic tournament, in only three months. If he made it, Talant Dujshebaev will become the unique, absolutely unique, despite his perfect CV ’till now…DUJSHEBAEV VS GUDMUNDSSON – special connection…Do you remember about not ordinary love betweenTalant Dujshebaev and Gudmundur Gudmundsson? This is something what is tough to forget…SCANDAL: Dujshebaev: You are provocator – Gudmundsson: You are liarHope no provocator tonight in Rio…PHOTO: IHF, Stephane Pillaud 7 reasons to watch final Handball days in Rio! ← Previous Story Final placement between 5-12 place: Croatia, Slovenia, Brazil… Next Story → BEIJING, LONDON, RIO: Air France still flying! read more

first_imgInfarctus : 7 heures de sommeil pour l’éviter, ni plus, ni moinsMonde – La revue Sleep vient de publier une étude démontrant les effets néfastes du sommeil, si l’on dort moins, mais également plus de 7 heures par jour.Une durée de sommeil trop courte ou trop longue multiplierait les risques de maladie cardiovasculaires et d’infarctus par deux. Tel est le résultat de l’étude menée par des chercheurs de l’université de Virginie Occidentale, grâce aux données collectées au cours de l’année 2005 auprès de 30.000 adultes ayant participé à une grande enquête de santé. Ce questionnaire fait ressortir la corrélation entre le sommeil et le risque pour la santé. Les individus les plus exposés seraient ceux qui dorment moins de 5 heures par jour sieste comprise, et ceux dormant plus de 9 heures, particulièrement chez les moins de 60 ans. Ces durées s’éloignant de la bonne moyenne de 7 heures par nuit favoriseraient l’augmentation de la pression artérielle, l’intolérance au glucose, l’insensibilité à l’insuline et les troubles des glandes endocrines. Autant de facteurs pouvant être responsables de maladies cardiovasculaires.Le 3 août 2010 à 10:53 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … A Jet Airways passenger aircraft prepares to land at the airport in Ahmedabad August 12, 2013.Reuters fileFacing a daunting cash crunch, leading carrier Jet Airways has raised the red alert, warning it will be grounded in two months’ time if costs are not substantially slashed. India’s biggest full-service carrier has sounded what could be its death knell. According to the latest reports, several ground staff and cabin crew would be fired in the coming days even as the airline struggles to stay in business.The launch of Jet Airways in 1993 marked the opening up of the rusty Indian economy. It’s a paradox that, decades later, the iconic carrier is facing trouble in an era defined by the 100 percent FDI in aviation sector.It’s too early to draw parallels with the failure of Vijay Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines, but things are not rosy for Jet Airways. All eyes will be on Naresh Goyal and what he does to pull from the brink a business he dearly held on to despite challenges. Will he bury personal ego and let Etihad take a controlling stake? Or, will he deal with the cash flow problems in riskier ways, which can result in graver risk for the airline’s future?Here’s a fact file on Jet Airways  ReutersJet Airways has a net debt of 81.5 billion rupees ($1.2 billion)In the year ended 31 March, the airline reported a loss of Rs 636.45 crore. Peers such as SpiceJet and Indigo had reported impressive profits during the same period.Most of Jet’s debts are dollar-denominated and hence a continued fall in the rupee has worsened the debt problem.On Friday, Reuters reported that the company told the staff that it will be grounded in 60 days if costs were not reduced.Business daily Mint reported on Friday that the management has approached investment bankers to facilitate a stake sale.Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways owns 24 percent in Jet Airways.It was reported earlier that Etihad was interested in taking a controlling stake in Jet Airways, but Naresh Goyal, who holds 51 percent, had declined the offer. It remains to be seen if Etihad will raise its stake in the current context.Earlier this week, it was reported that Jet Airways had proposed a pay cut of up to 25 percent, triggering stiff resistance from the pilots.Jet Airways wants to raise loans in the markets but banks have insisted on a turnaround commitment. Loans are unlikely to be approved without significant cost reduction.The management has said jobs will be cut in various verticals but pilots are not on the chopping board. However, pilots have resisted even a 15 percent pay cut.Jet Airways has more than 2,000 pilots. Around 80 percent of them are affiliated to the Jet Airways pilots’ union, the National Aviator’s Guild. The guild has asked its members not to accept a pay cut. There are more than 16,000 employees in Jet Airways.Apart from bloated costs, surging fuel prices and a weaker rupee are hurting Jet Airways.The other reasons cited by senior management in parleys with the staff are an erosion in market share in recent years and the inability to expand into other markets.The rise of Indigo and the launch of Air Asia ate into Jet’s formidable market share.Jet recently placed orders for 75 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, a move it says will help it expand in the domestic sector and reduce fuel and maintenance costs.Naresh Goyal launched the airline in 1993. Jet became a listed company in 2005. Goyal started his career working as a marketing executive in the airline industry. He later launched a marketing agency called Jet Air. When Goyal started his first business venture, his mother had sold her jewellery to raise the seed capital.After starting operations with four Boeing aircraft, Jet Airways became an international carrier in 2004 when it started flights to Colombo.Jet Airways acquired rival Sahara Airlines in 2007.Jet Airways survived a major scare in 2008, when global airline majors faced headwinds. Jet let nearly 2,000 employees go and restructured the operations to stay in business.In its 25 years of operations, Jet Airways aircraft have not been involved in any airline accidents where lives were lost.center_img Mid-air technical snag forces Etihad flight with 349 people on board to make emergency landinglast_img read more

first_imgScreamer Radio 1.0 Internet Radio player by Martin Brinkmann on October 24, 2016 in Music and Video – 11 commentsScreamer Radio 1.0 has been released a couple of days ago as a portable version and installer for all supported versions of Microsoft Windows.We have reviewed Screamer Radio back in 2007 for the first time and again in 2013. Back then it shipped with functionality to record streams which is not supported anymore.Probably the biggest change introduced in Screamer Radio 1.0 is that Windows XP is no longer supported.Users who use machines with Windows XP may use the previous version of Screamer Radio to continue using the program.The author revealed several reasons for dropping support for XP. For one, XP was holding back development because some components would not work at all, or not without fixing issues. Another reason given was that Microsoft dropped support for XP two years ago, and that users should not really be using the operating system anymore.Screamer Radio 1.0The only other changes are options to export favorite radio stations. This can be useful for backup purposes, or for importing those stations on another system.Screamer Radio 1.0 ships with a new installer. The program used Microsoft’s ClickOnce solution, but it was complicated and caused all kinds of issues. The new installer is called Squirrel and is simpler and better according to the author.Users can still download the portable version to use it without any form of installation.The program itself is an Internet Radio player that is easy to use and ships with a truckload of stations that you can tune in right away, and support for custom radio stations on top of that.While you get support for that in several popular media players as well, say AIMP with its library, it is Screamer Radio’s simplicity that may be its most appealing feature.Start the program, click on a station, and start listening right away.The “stations” listing is tag based which means that you can type tags to find stations of interest. The search tag:”classic rock” finds all classic rock stations for instance. While you may use the tag parameter for that, you can also simply enter “classic rock” to find those stations as well.Screamer Radio 1.0 supports the playback of Internet Radio but does not ship with recording options. While you may not need those, users who require them need to look elsewhere for a solution. The excellent program StreamWriter is an option. Consult our Internet Radio recorders overview for other solutions.Closing WordsScreamer Radio is one of those programs that you either like a lot, or cannot understand why anyone would use it. Considering that you can tune in to Internet Radio stations using most media players, it is understandable that some users prefer that solution.Users who want a simple, unobtrusive and easy to use program to play Internet Radio may find Screamer Radio useful for that purpose.Now You: Do you listen to Internet Radio?Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 9 votes Software Name Screamer Radio 1.0Operating System WindowsSoftware Category MultimediaLanding Page https://www.screamer-radio.com/download/ Advertisementlast_img read more

These findings come from a study published January 20 in the Journal of Neuroscience.”These findings have implications for predicting language learning success and failure,” said study author Xiaoqian Chai.The various regions of our brains communicate with each other even when we are resting and aren’t engaged in any specific tasks. The strength of these connections — called resting-state connectivity — varies from person to person, and differences have previously been linked to differences in behavior, including language ability.Led by Chai and Denise Klein, researchers at McGill University explored whether differences in resting-state connectivity relate to performance in a second language. To study this, the group at the Montreal Neurological Institute scanned the brains of 15 adult English speakers who were about to begin an intensive 12-week French course, and then tested their language abilities both before and after the course.Using resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the researchers examined the connectivity within the subjects’ brains prior to the start of the French course. They looked at the strength of connections between various areas in the brain and two specific language regions: an area of the brain implicated in verbal fluency, the left anterior insula/frontal operculum (AI/FO), and an area active in reading, the visual word form area (VWFA).The researchers tested the participants’ verbal fluency and reading speed both prior to the course and after its completion. To test verbal fluency, the researchers gave subjects a prompt and asked them to speak for two minutes in French. The researchers counted the number of unique words that were used correctly. To test reading speed, the researchers had participants read French passages aloud, and they calculated the number of words read per minute.Participants with stronger connections between the left AI/FO and an important region of the brain’s language network called the left superior temporal gyrus showed greater improvement in the speaking test. Participants with greater connectivity between the VWFA and a different area of the left superior temporal gyrus language area in the left temporal lobe showed greater improvement in reading speed by the end of the 12-week course.”The most interesting part of this finding is that the connectivity between the different areas was observed before learning,” said Arturo Hernandez, a neuroscientist at the University of Houston who studies second-language learning and was not involved in the study. “This shows that some individuals may have a particular neuronal activity pattern that may lend itself to better learning of a second language.”However, that doesn’t mean success at a second language is entirely predetermined by the brain’s wiring. The brain is very plastic, meaning that it can be shaped by learning and experience, Chai said.The study is “a first step to understanding individual differences in second language learning,” she added. “In the long term it might help us to develop better methods for helping people to learn better.”For more information: www.jneurosci.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more Related Content News | Stroke | August 16, 2019 Mobile Stroke Unit Gets Patients Quicker Treatment Than Traditional Ambulance Every second counts for stroke patients, as studies show they can lose up to 27 million brain cells per minute…. read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more last_img read more

first_imgAussie women would prefer to visit international landmarks over local ones, according to a recent study.A lastminute.com.au report found that 55 percent of women would prefer to head overseas to see London’s Buckingham Palace, 52 percent want to tick off Paris’ Eiffel Tower but only 25 percent want to venture to Uluru.Despite the desire to head overseas, the study of up to 5,000 Australian women revealed of Australia’s domestic destinations, Melbourne was the clear favourite, with one in two women picking it as their number one place for a city break.And when it comes to staying in touch, 43 percent of travelling Australian women said they feel anxious when they travel without their phones, compared to just 29 percent of men. The majority also say no to in-flight calls, with only 18 percent claiming they would like to make phone calls on the plane. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more

first_imgRising Chinese visitors heading into the Far North. Image: Kuranda Tour Addon – Birdworld The Far North has welcomed a record number of Chinese travellers this year, exceeding 100,000 for the first time. According to a local survey, up to 102,075 Chinese arrivals landed in the Far North for the year ending 30 September, a 38 percent increase year-on-year, Cairns.com.au reported.Tourism Tropical North Queensland chief executive Rob Gaison said the increase ascertained the region’s popularity amongst Chinese travellers and expects China Eastern’s recently launched direct flights to further entice arrivals.Despite a weak-Japan route resulting from last year’s quake, Japanese arrivals into Cairns increased slightly by one percent over the same period from 91,141 to 91,746, while American visitors increased by 6,426 to 79,977.Arrivals from Britain and Germany fell during the period, with 15,133 fewer Britons and 3,724 less Germans.

There were heavy supplies of local kiwifruit available in the European market when Chile began its season, which could explain the sharp drop in shipments to that market.Although India has been a rapid growth market for Chilean kiwifruit over recent years, this year shipments are down 42% at 5,528MT. The Committee said that demand remained strong in the country, but exporters were moderating their shipments so as not to oversupply the market.There were also declines to North America (which is down 13% at 15,972MT), as well as Russia (down 8% at 9,632MT) and the Middle East (down 18% at 4,452MT).The Committee added that although the Northern Hemisphere is in its holiday season at the moment, the market performance of Chilean kiwifruit has been good in key markets. Sales are expected to improve from August.According to a Crop Report by market intelligence company Decofrut, “over the last fortnight, movement of Chilean kiwifruit has remained constant in key markets, achieving improved sales prices”.
