Owaisi critical of Centres view against bringing in new law to curb

first_imgHyderabad: AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday appeared to have found fault with the Centre’s reported view against bringing in a new law to curb mob lynchings. “The Bill I’d proposed to curb mob violence sought to fix shoddy enforcement by ensuring independent investigation & prosecution. Unless errant cops are penalised & accused are imprisoned in a time-bound manner, the mob will only feel emboldened It’s not rocket science @AmitShah,” the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader tweeted. Owaisi, Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad, referred to media reports, quoting officials, that a new law to curb lynching is unlikely as existing laws were enough to combat crimes like lynching and all it required was “enforcement.” He had earlier favoured bringing in a law against lynching. He had also proposed a bill to check incidents of mob lynchings.last_img read more

Undefeated in Big Ten Buckeyes take win in overtime

Ninety minutes wasn’t enough time to for either team to find the back of the net, but it was Paige Maxwell’s overtime goal in the 96th minute that gave the Ohio State women’s soccer team (8-2-1, 2-0-0) a win over rival Penn State (3-7-1, 1-1-0). “Any win you pick up at home is fantastic,” coach Lori Walker said. “Penn State gave us quite a few problems and we pushed through. Our soccer was definitely quality enough to result in a win.” The game-winning goal is Maxwell’s second in as many games, after scoring the difference-maker in last week’s win over Michigan. This week’s goal came after Maxwell intercepted an errant pass from Penn State goalkeeper Krissy Tribbett and then dribbled in and floated a kick over the diving goalie. “My first thought right after the goalie passed it to me was ‘Holy moly, I’m all by myself,” Maxwell said. “It’s my job to just score like a forward is supposed to do.” Maxwell appeared to have an opportunity to score in regulation, but her shot attempt sailed over the goal and out of bounds. “I kind of lost my concentration,” Maxwell said. “I did a whoopsie-doo right over the goalie and right over the goal, too.” Walker said that she was happy to see Maxwell make amends for her previous missed opportunity. “She felt a bit of responsibility ‘cause there was one in the first half that she felt she should have buried,” Walker said. “Good for her to get that back and kind of get the monkey off her back.” As the Buckeyes’ offense struggled to put the ball in the net throughout regulation, it was their tenacious defense that helped carry the scoreless game into overtime, as they limited the Nittany Lions to just two shots on goal, with goalkeeper Rachel Middleman making both saves. “Our defense is pretty much unstoppable and they’re just working so hard,” Maxwell said. “This is our year, we really just want to shine, and we’re putting everything we can toward it.” The Buckeyes will now look forward to a two-game road trip this weekend for a pair of Big Ten games against Iowa and Northwestern, before returning home for a three-game home stand. read more

Monsanto Announces MultiYear Commitment to Help Monarch Butterflies

first_imgMonarch Watch: A nonprofit education, conservation, and research program based at the University of Kansas – focuses on the monarch butterfly, its habitat, and its spectacular fall migration. This grant will enable Monarch Watch to produce and make available milkweed plants free of charge for landscape improvement, including buffer strips on farm-lands, roadsides, rights of way, parks, public lands and demonstration plots along the monarch’s migratory path – which stretches from Mexico to Canada.Iowa Monarch Conservation Consortium: The grant will help drive research to create quality habitat, develop guidance and demonstrations for farmers to cost-effectively improve and expand habitat, and monitor milkweed and adult monarch populations to track progress. The Iowa Monarch Conservation Consortium can serve as a model framework for other state-level initiatives planning to implement monarch conservation.Pheasants Forever: The grant will lead to the planting of monarch and pollinator habitats at more than 70 Monsanto research and manufacturing sites and facilities located in the monarch breeding range. This includes the creation of three Learning Center programs to demonstrate how to establish sustainable monarch and pollinator habitat, which is also the same habitat critical to upland birds. These programs engage, enroll and educate farmers and communities to contribute to a resilient monarch population.University of Guelph: The grant will help to understand migration patterns and identify priority areas for milkweed restoration in the United States and Canada so that investments in habitat improvement are more successful.University of Illinois at Chicago, Energy Resources Center: Researchers will use these resources to identify and prioritize available public and private lands for monarch habitat improvement using geo-spatial analysis. This information will support the success of restoration programs by considering habitat location, quality and cost across diverse landscapes.Beyond those funding commitments, Monsanto also encourages a diverse group of public and private sector stakeholders to fully participate in the Keystone Policy Center Monarch Butterfly Collaborative – an effort to connect the agriculture supply chain with conservationists, farmers, scientists and landscape professionals from across the country to coordinate and scale solutions to the challenges facing monarchs and other pollinators.To learn more about Monsanto’s work to protect and conserve natural resources, go to http://monsanto.info/sustainability. Monsanto Company announced last week a $400,000 commitment to partner with and support the efforts of experts working to benefit monarch butterflies. This comes in addition to the company’s earlier announcement of a $3.6 million grant to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). Monsanto’s funding is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to work with experts in support of important biodiversity initiatives.“Monsanto is committed to preserving and protecting the biodiversity of our planet. While weed management has been a factor in the decline of milkweed habitat, the agricultural sector can absolutely be part of the solution in restoring it,” said Brett Begemann, president and chief operating officer of Monsanto. “We’re proud to collaborate with non-profits, universities, researchers, farmers and others to find ways to improve and protect monarch habitat across North America. It is clear that sufficient progress cannot be made without action. Monsanto will work alongside others to address this important element of biodiversity.”Monsanto grants to the following organizations will support a series of initiatives focused on both immediate and long-term action in protecting biodiversity:National Fish and Wildlife Foundation:  Monsanto will match the initial $1.2 million pledge from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Monarch Butterfly Conservation Fund and provide $2.4 million additional funding to match commitments from federal agencies over the next three years. This support will be targeted to provide habitat restoration, education and outreach and milkweed seed and plant production.last_img read more

Why single out Ranveer Singh when we keep mum on scores of

first_imgWhile Twitterati and several other people on other social media platforms denounced Jack & Jones’s “sexist” advertisement featuring Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh after it was slammed by Tamil actor Siddharth and the ad was eventually pulled down, it may be a sobering exercise to take stock of some other advertisements misinforming and misleading the public.Releasing its data on November 21, the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) said that in August 2016, the ASCI’s Consumer Complaints Council (CCC) upheld complaints against 152 out of 209 advertisements. Though many prominent brands feature in the list, one similar advertisement promoting casual sexism in the workplace like the Jack & Jones ad that made the cut in the CCC’s list was none other than TimesJobs.com, which describes itself as the nation’s leading job portal.Describing its observation, the advertisement industry watchdog held that the advertisement “is suggestive, objectifies women and indecent in the depiction of woman which is likely, in the light of generally prevailing standards of decency, to cause grave and widespread offence.” It also made a similar observation in a follow-up ad.An even more concerning fact embedded in the ASCI’s finding is that among the 152 complaints upheld by them, 66 instances were of education category, followed by 27 belonging to the healthcare category. The list also included 17 in the food and beverages category, 10 in personal care category, five in clothing and accessories category and 27 advertisements from other categories.The overwhelming cause for misleading advertisements for educational institutions was found out to be exaggerated, unsubstantiated, unverified and misleading claims that guaranteed to provide 100% placement/AND/OR they claim to be the No.1 in their respective fields. Although a more exhaustive list can be found here, some of the well-known names in the list included: Lovely Professional University, Sharda University, Pearl Academy, Frankfinn institute of Air Hostess Training and SRM university.Out of the 27 advertisements from the healthcare category whose advertisements were also pulled up for marketing products in a misleading manner, a peculiar trend was observed. Many of these advertisements that were pulled up by the ASCI were found to be in violation of the Drugs and Magic Remedies Act that more specifically, in these cases, concern the prohibition of advertising of drugs and remedies for improving or maintaining the capacity for sexual pleasure.Advertisements of companies and products such as Olefia Biopharma Limited (Votif Range of Products), Chetan Clinic, Nurture Health Care (Ayurex S Capsule) , Jippo African Capsule and African Oil, Amba Health Clinic, and German Homeo Laboratories Pvt. Ltd. (German Homeo Laboratory) that claimed to provide cures for a range of sexual problems were included in the ASCI list.Claims such as “Nightfall, Premature Ejaculation, Sexual weakness in Men”, “Masturbation, Pen** Disorders, Weakness in Nerves”, “You can get rid of loose thin and crooked Pen**”, “Itchiness in your sexual Organs”, “Low Sperm Count”, “Ovarian Cyst”, “Leucorrhoea White Discharge”, “Sagging of Sexual Organs”, “Lack of Sexual Desire”, “Irregular Periods”, “Make you small, loose, underdeveloped chest into a shapely, beautiful and attractive one”, “Enhance your Feminity” and “Improve Husband Wife Relationship” etc. were reported as unsubstantiated after examination of the use of products were found to be inefficacious, besides being in violation of the Act.So how are they still allowed to market and advertise these products?The answer can be found in what prominent sexologist Dr. Narayana Reddy explained to the Hindu: “The law provides them enough room to escape. Section 33EEC of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act of 1940 exempts drugs manufactured by vaidyas or hakims… for the use of their own patients from any regulation. Thus, as long as the quack sells his medicine to patients who come to him of their own accord, no standards or safety regulations apply.”last_img read more
