first_img Eurofighter leading race whatsapp Sunday 7 November 2010 8:53 pm KCS-content Show Comments ▼ THE EUROFIGHTER consortium, made up of Britain, Germany, Spain and Italy, is leading the race to win a £7bn deal to supply 126 Typhoon fighter jets to the Indian Air Force.The deal would create 2,000 new jobs in Britain.The Typhoon, produced by Britain’s BAE Systems, Italy’s Finmeccanica and pan-European aerospace firm EADS, topped the Indian Air Force’s technical assessment of bids, beating the American F16 and F18s, Russian MiG 35 and France’s Dassault Rafale, according to a reports.If the Eurofighter jet wins the deal, India would become the consortium’s third-largest customer and an unofficial fifth partner in the project.“The Indians would be one of the biggest users of Typhoon, which would give them a vote at the table,” a weekend paper cited an official as saying, adding that the findings have been forwarded to India’s defence ministry who will make a final decision in “the next few months”.Eurofighter representatives were yesterday unavailable for comment ahead of an official announcement. center_img Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

AFBF Director of Grassroots Program Development Randy Dwyer says lawmakers are out in their respective districts this week looking to hear from farmers and ranchers.“This week is farm bill action week and we are asking farmers and ranchers across the country to take a minute and to contact their legislators about the farm bill. It’s a great opportunity to spend a little bit of time reaching out and letting your legislators know that the farm bill is extremely important.”The House Agriculture Committee sent its version of the farm bill to the full House for consideration in late April. The House could consider the bill within the next three weeks. Dwyer says farmers and ranchers need to let Congress know the importance of keeping the bill moving forward.“Farm Bureau members across the country need to let their legislators know that they need to support the farm bill. It is extremely important for rural America that this farm bill gets enacted. The opportunity is now to reach out because there is a vote coming up in a couple of weeks in the House of Representatives.”Dwyer is encouraging farmers and ranchers to call, email or even use social media, to make their voice heard by legislators.“There are several ways that our Farm Bureau members can reach out to their legislators this week. One of them is going online, and that’s going to fb.org/advocacy. There, they can send an email to their legislators. It’s quick, it’s simple, and it makes a big impact back in the congressional office.” SHARE AFBF: Contact Lawmakers Now to Support Farm Bill By Hoosier Ag Today – May 3, 2018 last_img read more

Oaxaca community radios hounded for opposing wind farm

first_img News May 13, 2021 Find out more Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state May 5, 2021 Find out more News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Receive email alerts Follow the news on Mexico to go further Reporters Without Borders condemns the harassment of community radio stations in the southern state of Oaxaca by the local authorities and international companies. The radio stations are opposing the proposed construction of a huge wind farm in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec by Mareña Renovables and Gas Natural Fenosa and are criticizing the failure to consult the local indigenous communities.The conflict has intensified in the past few days. Radio Totopo journalist Carlos Sánchez Martínez was arrested and physically attacked yesterday by members of the Oaxaca state police and is still in detention. His case is emblematic of the way this station, which has spearheaded indigenous opposition to the wind farm, has been hounded for months. Just days ago, representatives of the Oaxaca state government attacked the station and confiscated equipment.The persecution of Radio Totopo is not isolated. Other news outlets that have been covering the conflict have also been hounded for months. Radio Xadani journalist Filiberto Vincente Aquino received death threats on 20 March after attending a news conference on opposition to the wind farm.The next day, several journalists – including Ignacio Garrido and Karina Martínez of Radio Voces de los Pueblos, Rosa Rojas of the daily La Jornada, photographer Francisco Olvera, David Henestrosa and Eliseo Ramirez – were arrested by the municipal police in San Mateo del Mar and were held for several hours.Transmitting equipment was stolen a few days ago from Radio Huave, which has been criticizing the wind farm’s potential impact for years.Reporters Without Borders urges the Oaxaca government and international companies to end their campaign of criminalizing the community radio stations and to respect their work. The role they play in defending local community rights is beyond dispute, and they are just covering an ongoing local conflict.Reporters Without Borders also calls on the authorities to comply with their obligation to respect the rights of indigenous peoples as established in International Labour Organization Convention No. 169, which Mexico ratified in 1990, and in Article 2 of the Federal Constitution.The safety of journalists in Mexico, which Reporters Without Borders visited in March, continues to be very worrying, especially in the north and east of the countries where online media and blogs, in particular, are being targeted.Reporters Without Borders is astonished that the Mexican Association of Newspaper Publishers chose to award the governor of Veracruz state a prize for his “efforts to guarantee full use of freedom of expression” on 2 April. Five journalists were killed in Veracruz in 2012, many journalists have fled the state and those responsible for crimes of violence against journalists enjoy complete impunity.

NASA/JPL-CaltechEngineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena are trying to fix a problem with the Mars Curiosity rover’s drill mechanism, as the vehicle remains stationary on the red planet.The rover team at JPL learned on December 1 that Curiosity did not complete the commands for drilling. The rover detected a fault in the “drill feed” mechanism that prevented the drill from touching the rock target.“We are in the process of defining a set of diagnostic tests to carefully assess the drill feed mechanism. We are using our test rover here on Earth to try out these tests before we run them on Mars,” Curiosity Deputy Project Manager Steven Lee at JPL said Monday. “To be cautious, until we run the tests on Curiosity, we want to restrict any dynamic changes that could affect the diagnosis. That means not moving the arm and not driving, which could shake it.”“We said ‘go,’ and it just didn’t go,” says Ashwin Vasavada, a project scientist at JPL told NPR.The drill feed mechanism pushes the front of the drill outward from the turret of tools at the end of Curiosity’s robotic arm. The drill collects powdered rock that is analyzed by laboratory instruments inside the rover.Even as it remains stranded, the rover is studying its surroundings and monitoring the environment, rather than driving or using its arm for science.‘We’re keeping busy with using the other instruments on the rover while they do these tests,’ said Ashwin Vasavada, project scientist.At its current location, Curiosity has driven 9.33 miles since landing inside Mars’ Gale Crater in August 2012. That includes more than half a mile since departing a cluster of scenic mesas and buttes – called “Murray Buttes” – in September. Curiosity has climbed 541 feet in elevation since landing, including 144 feet since departing Murray Buttes, according to NASA.Since 2012, Curiosity has uncovered geologic evidence of an ancient environment that could have supported primitive life early in the red planet’s history. At Mount Sharp, the rover plans to climb to higher and younger rock formations.Before the drill mechanism snag, the six-wheel rover found more evidence of a watery history on the slopes of Mount Sharp including the presence of certain chemicals that suggests a warmer and wetter past unlike the current frigid, harsh environment.JPL, a division of Caltech, manages NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory Project for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington, and built the Curiosity rover.For more information about the mission, visit www.mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl.

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness VarmX appoints Dr. Gerard Short as Chief Medical Officer WhatsApp LEIDEN, The Netherlands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 27, 2021– VarmX, a biotech company focusing on the development of innovative approaches for the reversal of anticoagulation, today announces the appointment of Dr. Gerard Short, MBBS, as Chief Medical Officer (CMO). As CMO, Dr. Short will be responsible for overseeing the clinical development of VarmX’s pipeline, including progression of its lead product, VMX-C001, into clinical proof of concept and registrational studies. Dr. Short brings to VarmX extensive clinical development expertise, with a particular focus on rare diseases and gene therapy for haematological disorders. With more than 20 years of experience working within the sector – for both big pharma and biotech – he has established a strong track record of successfully leading teams in clinical development and medical affairs. Alexander Vos, CEO of VarmX, said:“We are delighted to welcome a person of Gerard’s calibre to our team. His proven knowledge in clinical, medical, and regulatory affairs, combined with his history of successfully advancing programs into the clinic, will be instrumental as VarmX enters a key transition phase to becoming a clinical stage company in 2021.” “I’m pleased to be joining VarmX at this stage in the Company’s evolution,”commented Dr. Gerard Short, CMO of VarmX, on his appointment.“I recognise the potential that the lead compound, VMX-C001, holds as an effective and differentiated antidote to oral anticoagulants, reversing the severe consequences that patients face. As such, I look forward eagerly to further progress the program towards the start of clinical studies later this year.” Dr. Short joins VarmX from Freeline Therapeutics, where he served for five years as SVP Clinical and Regulatory and later SVP Medical Science. During this time, he grew the medical, clinical, and regulatory groups, and established an in-house pharmacovigilance function. Further, he advanced gene therapy clinical programmes in haemophilia B and Fabry’s disease. Before Freeline, Dr. Short spent a decade at Genzyme, preceding and following its acquisition by Sanofi. He held roles of increasing responsibility, ultimately serving as Global Development Team Leader leading innovative treatment programmes targeting Pompe’s disease (phase 3) and acute leukaemia. Prior to Genzyme, Dr. Short established his clinical development career through a series of roles at Novartis, Pfizer and Sanofi-Synthelabo following eight years as a clinical practitioner. Dr. Short received his Bachelor of Medicine (MBBS) degree from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School (now part of Imperial College) and holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from London Business School. In addition, he is a Member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP UK) and a Fellow of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine (FFPM).

In a letter addressed to Chief Justice Govind Mathur, the HCBA has sought clarity as to what matters constitute “urgent matters” and whether all bail/ anticipatory bail applications would alone be treated as urgent for enabling e-filing. Similar queries are also sought with respect to civil cases and the Association has asked whether any categorization has been made for urgency in civil matters. Inter alia, the letter points out that the E-filing notice is silent with respect to filing of vakalatnama and the modes and methods thereto and it also gives an impression that for e-filing, affidavits would be required to be sworn at Allahabad, which makes the entire system illusory amid lockdown. “The necessity of filing vakalatnama and swearing of affidavit at Allahabad would make whole system illusory in this period of lockdown when all movements are restricted. Furthermore, in case a client or pairokar can come to Allahabad in violation of the lockdown, the lawyers and clerks would be subjected to exposure to infection of Covid 19 on account of physical interaction which would defeat the purpose of the system,” the letter states. In this backdrop the Association has suggested that Aadhar based applications may be used for eliminating physical presence of client or pairokar while fixing responsibility on the relevant persons for averments made. “Adhaar e-sign would obviate the necessity of filing affidavits as also digital signatures and secure the physical well being of Advocate and their clerks by eliminating physical interaction,” the letter states. Clarification is also sought in the direction that only lawyers on the Advocates roll of the High Court will be given access to the video link with a corresponding link to the designated senior Advocate whose name may be clearly mentioned in the case. The Association has lastly urged the court to not pass any adverse orders against the lawyers in case they default in following the procedure, given that the changes in the procedure are “drastic” and lawyers need some time to “understand and adopt” the system. They have also urged that the present system of normal filing should be continued for a period of one month so as to provide time to lawyers for upgrading their windows, internet connectivity, etc. Read Letter Next Storylast_img read more

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Local celebs t take stage to raise funds

The competition will be friendly but everybody is dancing to win.“We only have a few weeks to practice,” Sanders said. “Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition will be a fun and entertaining evening and, hopefully, become an annual event in support of BEYONDance in Pike County.”Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition was planned to accommodate the schedule of the professional dancers.Even though “Dancing” is on the same night as the Colley Senior Complex Mardi Gras Gala, February 8, it is possible to do both, Sanders said.“Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition” will begin at 6 p.m. and will conclude at 7:30 p.m. leaving time to attend the Gala, where the dancing will go on into the night.Tickets for Dancing with the Stars are $25 general admission and $15 for Troy University and PRJ Dance Center students.Sponsorships for Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition are available beginning at $500 Theater Sponsorships and increase in $500 increments up to the $3,000 Front Row Sponsor.  A Center Stage Sponsor is $5,000. Invitations to the VIP reception and reserved seating for the show are included in the sponsorships.“BEYONDance is in its third year at Troy Elementary School and it’s amazing what the program means to the kids,” Sanders said. “All students in grades one through six benefit from the program as they are involved in dance as part of the physical education program. Professional dancers from PRJ are the teaching artists for the weekly outreach program.”Sanders said the benefits to the students are many.“Dance improves overall fitness and motor skills,” she said. “Teachers have said the side benefits of the dance program include improved conduct, communication and social skills. For many kids, dance gives them more of a sense of self pride and worth. The dance teachers say dance opens the doors to interaction, especially, among shy children and it’s amazing how much growth children make through dance.”The BEYONDance program also offers dance education scholarships to the Troy Dance Center to students who wish to be more involved in dance.All students in the BEYONDance program have an opportunity to perform in a dance program at the close of the school year.There is no way to know the extent of the benefits of a school dance program, Sanders said.  However, the smiles on the faces of the children and their excitement and energy are good indicators that the benefits of BEYONDance are worth much more than the cost.
