Saffron workers try to make Bashirhat bandh a success obstruct traffic train

first_imgKolkata: Following the day-long drama on Sunday, BJP workers on Monday forcefully tried to make the 12 hour Bashirhat strike a grand success. BJP workers put up road blockades and obstructed train services which resulted in tremendous harassment for the daily commuters.Since morning, several road blockades were put up across the Bashirhat area to obstruct normal traffic. Near Kachithuba More, two rallies of Trinamool Congress and BJP came face to face, which resulted in a scuffle. BJP workers put up tree trunks to block the roads. In some places, BJP workers also burnt car tyres to obstruct normal traffic.

Commentary Decision to elect game captains unfair to Buckeyes proven leaders

Luke Fickell hasn’t even endured his first game as the head coach yet, but he’s already made his first mistake. After a summer full of speculation about which players would lead the team onto the field as OSU’s captains this fall, Fickell announced Tuesday that he would be departing from the program’s tradition of selecting season-long captains. Instead, Fickell said that the team will be choosing captains on a game-by-game basis. The reasoning behind Fickell’s decision is pretty clear; it would be tough to select OSU’s typical four to six captains without including one of four Buckeye seniors who are suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season for receiving impermissible benefits. The decision to select captains on a game-by-game basis essentially rewards DeVier Posey, Mike Adams, Daniel “Boom” Herron and Solomon Thomas by giving them the opportunity to be selected after they return from their suspensions, but that’s not where I have a problem. My issue with Fickell’s decision is the indirect punishment for players who would likely have been season-long captains, regardless of the transgressions committed by the aforementioned players. Even if Posey, Adams, Herron, and Thomas had not been suspended for the start of the 2011 season, it’s almost certain that senior center Michael Brewster would be representing the Buckeyes at midfield for each coin toss this upcoming fall. Brewster committed to OSU during his junior year of high school in Orlando, Fla., but even before then, he was helping recruit a top-rated 2008 recruiting class to Columbus that would go on to be nicknamed the “Brew Crew.” Upon arriving at OSU, all Brewster has done is become a four-year starter and the face of a team who was in desperate need of one when turmoil struck last December. He could have been named a captain as a junior and nobody would have batted an eye. Now it appears he won’t even be a captain for all of his senior season. The absence of season-long defensive captains is even more absurd considering that the only suspended Buckeye on that side of the ball — Thomas — happens to be a back-up. So, thanks to the transgressions of a player who’s played sparingly throughout his time at OSU, a player like sixth-year defensive back Tyler Moeller, who’s bounced back from being the victim of an assault that cost him all of the 2009 season, and a torn pectoral that cost him most of the 2010 season, from being a season-long captain. Or what about senior linebacker Andrew Sweat, who is entering his second season as a starter at OSU and, despite having roomed with former quarterback Terrelle Pryor, has managed to keep his name out of the press for negative reasons?   You mean to tell me that he doesn’t deserve to be a season-long captain? I’ll grant Fickell that allowing players to vote for four (or in the case of last season, six) captains would have likely resulted in one of the suspended players — most likely Posey — being selected a captain, but that doesn’t mean that there weren’t better alternatives than electing game-by-game captains. One option would have been for Fickell to simply select Brewster, Moeller, and Sweat as the team’s three captains and say “that’s that.” Just because former coach Jim Tressel allowed his team to vote for captains doesn’t mean that Fickell needs to do the same. Another option would have been to allow the players to vote on captains and if a suspended player were to be selected, he could either be absent or replaced by a rotation of players for the first five games. There’s even a precedent for this —  during the 2009 season, three defensive captains were named and were then joined by a rotating offensive player each week. Now more than ever, the Buckeye football program needs stability in its leadership. Not just in its coaching staff, but in its players too. The idea of different captains on a game-by-game basis is anything but that. Fickell said that season captains will eventually be named, possibly at the team’s postseason banquet, which will be a nice moment for deserving players like Brewster, Moeller, and Sweat, even if it comes a few months too late. read more

Shoppers should only be given new pound coins in their change says

first_imgCashiers should make sure consumers are only given new pound coins in their change as part of efforts to phase out the old version, a minister has said.The new 12-sided £1 coin was brought into circulation in March, and the old round coin will cease to be legal tender from October 15.The Royal Mint has encouraged consumers to “spend, bank or donate” their old coins before that date. Old pound coin Mr Jones, Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, also warned about companies accidentally returning the new version of the coin rather than the old one, saying “businesses must remain vigilant”.He said: “There has been a fantastic effort from both the public and businesses in returning more than one billion old round pounds, and I thank everybody involved in this process so far. “But there is still more to do before the 15 October deadline.” The new coin was brought in to tackle the problem of fakes. Approximately one in thirty of the old round £1 coins in circulation are counterfeit.The 12-sided coin, with a gold coloured nickel-brass outer ring and silver-coloured nickel-plated alloy inner ring has been described as “the most secure in the world”.It also has a hologram-style image that appears as a £ symbol and a number 1 depending on the angle it is viewed from.center_img Treasury minister Andrew Jones has urged businesses to do their part to make sure shoppers are not given more of the old coins.He said: “Businesses must remain vigilant when returning coins and ensure old and new coins are organised in separate packaging to make the sorting process quicker and easier.”Shopkeepers must “play their part  to ensure only new pound coins are given to shoppers in their change”, he said.

Greek councillors welcome younger veterans push for RSL reforms to pokies

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Councillors Lambros Tapinos (City of Moreland), Mary Lalios (Whittlesea) and Virginia Tachos (Brimbank), yesterday welcomed the campaign by a group of younger veterans for full pokies divestment by the Victorian RSL, as the City of Moreland secured a pivotal VCAT victory which will force the Glenroy RSL to remove 10 of their 50 pokies.The three councillors, who have campaigned for better protections and legislation surrounding pokies, called for the current board of the Victorian RSL to implement a ceasefire on their push for new poker machine approvals until after the 4 July RSL State Conference.“We applaud the work of younger veterans  and call on the incumbent Victorian RSL board to embrace their reform agenda and come up with a new long term business model which does not rely on predatory poker machines which continue to harm veterans.”.“The RSL should be focused on providing welfare services to veterans not pokies”The three councils of Brimbank, Whittlesea and Moreland,  for the period July 2018 to February 2019, collectively lost $223,472,922 through pokies gambling.  This amount is staggering, and is the most recent figure from the VCGLR (Victorian Commission for Gaming and Liquor Regulation).The call from the younger veteran insurgency coincides with the conclusion of a 4-year battle between City of Moreland and Anzac House over 10 extra poker machines at the Glenroy RSL.The Glenroy RSL first applied for the additional pokies in 2015 but after various battles at the VCGLR, VCAT and in the Supreme Court, the push was finally defeated on Thursday when VCAT emphatically rejected the application.READ MORE: Heroic Greek Anzac soldiers fought in WWI for their new country“The 10 additional poker machine were installed by the Glenroy RSL in 2017 after the original VCAT decision but will now have to be removed and potentially sold, which is symbolic of what the wider RSL should now do across Victoria,” Cr Tapinos said.“The City of Moreland should be applauded for its dogged protection of the Glenroy community from further gambling harm and also calls for the 10 machines to be immediately removed, ideally to coincide with ANZAC Day.” Crs Lalios and Tachos agreed.RSL Victoria has wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars fighting to cause more gambling harm in an already vulnerable Glenroy community when these funds could have been directed to veterans welfare rather than lawyers and gambling consultants.“After recent failed attempts to expand its pokies empire it is time for the board to take charge at ANZAC House and end the pokies push once and for all so that younger veterans can proudly associate with an organisation doing no harm in the community.” the councillors agreed.At the very least the Victorian RSL board should commission a full independent audit of the pokies division so members can be informed when they vote at the 4 July State Council.READ MORE: Victorian government to tackle gambling Latest figures from the VCGLR from July 2018 to February 2019 (8 months)BRIMBANK losses  $96,068,255.07MORELAND LOSSES  $43,168,892.65Whittlesea losses $81,235,773.70Recent Victorian RSL attempts to install additional poker machines. Glenroy RSL: applied in 2015 to expand its poker machines numbers by 10 to 50 and after various skirmishes at council, the VCGLR, VCAT and in the Supreme Court, the application was finally rejected by VCAT in April 2019 and the 10 additional machines will now have to be removed.

Anxiety sufferer seeks babysitter to take kids trick or treating

first_imgSomething for the weekend: A mother of three in Wirral, Merseyside, who suffers from social anxiety is offering to pay a babysitter up to £50 an hour to take her children trick or treating on Halloween.In an advert placed on, she explained: “I get very scared at Halloween because of the costumes and speaking to strangers to ask for sweets for the kids. I have severe social anxiety and am uncomfortable with trick or treating, but I’d like for my kids to experience it. I’d hate for them to miss out on this because of me, and having put it off for the last three years I feel I can’t any more.”The mum of two boys and a girl, aged nine, seven and three respectively, also requires the fully qualified babysitter to help the kids get ready, because she is spooked by costumes.She said: “I’d ask friends, but I don’t know many people with children, so they’re not doing trick or treating and are busy on Halloween, as it’s a school night!”Richard Conway, founder of, was touched by the post on the website and decided to spread the word. He said: “She’s clearly trying to do the best for her children and is more than happy to pay someone to perform this service. I got in touch with her to ask how I could help, and promoting this advert seemed like the best way I could help her.”Here at Employee Benefits, we think it is sweet the Merseyside mum is making this effort. We hope someone suitable is found to take the kids round all the local haunts…last_img read more

AL to reshape villages if voted to power PM

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina addresses a public rally at Police Lines Ground in Pabna on Saturday. Photo: PIDUrging the countrymen to cast their votes for ‘boat’, the election symbol of Awami League, in the next general election, prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday said whatever pledges her party and government made will surely be fulfilled.“If you (people) cast your votes for ‘boat’, we’ll get another chance for serving you. Please raise your hands and say that you’ll cast your votes for us. Whatever pledges we’ve given to you, we’ll surely fulfill those … surely Bangladesh will turn into a prosperous and developed country,” she said.The Awami League president was addressing a mammoth public rally at the Pabna police lines ground organized by the district unit of ruling Awami League.Chaired by district AL president and land minster Shamsur Rahman Sherif, the rally was also addressed, among others, by agriculture minister Begum Matia Chowdhury, health minister Mohammed Nasim, AL presidium member M Abdur Razzaque, AL joint general secretaries Dipu Moni and Jahangir Kabir Nanak, and AL central leader SM Kamal Hossain.Referring to the general election to be held this December, the premier said if the countrymen voted AL to power again, they would turn every village of the country into a town.“We’ll ensure urban facilities for each and every community of each village and they’ll live a better life. We’ll turn every village into a town,” she pledged.Mentioning that Bangladesh has become a ‘developing country’ after graduating from the LDC status, the premier said: “We won’t beg from others. By the year 2041, we’ll make Bangladesh a prosperous and developed ‘Sonar Bangladesh’. No one was able to suppress Bengalees in the past and none will be able to do so in future. We’re moving ahead and we’ll continue to move forward,” she said.Referring to the arson attacks and mayhem unleashed by the BNP-Jamaat clique to foil the 5 January polls of 2014, Sheikh Hasina said the BNP-Jamaat hooligans during that time burnt some 3,500 innocent people, set afire some 70 government offices, and burned down 3,500 buses, 29 rail bogies and 6 land offices.“They (BNP-Jamaat) only know how to unleash havoc …. They only mean killing and destruction. Whenever they assumed office, they resorted to killings,” she alleged.The prime minister said on the other hand, AL wants and always works for ensuring development of the people. “We know better how to ensure development of the country and we’re doing that accordingly,” she said.She also said that her party assumed office to change the fate of the common people, not to resort to looting and let its party men make fortune.Turning to the jail-term of BNP chief Khaleda Zia in the Zia Orphanage Trust Case, Sheikh Hasina said Khaleda Zia had been convicted to jail term by the court since she embezzled the fund of the orphanage.Recalling the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with most of his family members on that fateful night on 15 August, the prime minister said her government has been working to turn Bangladesh into a hunger and poverty free ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by the Father of the Nation.Renewing her pledge to free Bangladesh from terrorism, militancy and the clutch of drug, Sheikh Hasina said her government has been continuing drives against terrorism, militancy and drug to free the country from these menaces.In this connection, the prime minister sought cooperation and whole-hearted support from the guardians, teachers, freedom fighters and religious leaders to keep the youth-folk from the evil vices of terrorism, militancy and drug addiction.“Drug addiction destroys a family. Terrorism and militancy not only destroy a family, rather they ruin the whole country … I’ll urge all of you to keep special attention so the youth do not tread the path of terrorism, militancy and drug addiction. We’ll do whatever necessary in this regard,” she added.Listing various achievements in different socio-economic fields over the last nine and a half years of the Awami League government, Sheikh Hasina said her government has been distributing various allowances to different sections of people, providing stipends for students, building houses for the homeless from the Ashrayan project, giving subsidies to farmers through agri-input cards, turning post offices into e-post offices while some 100 special economic zones are being set up to spur economic development.Terming the inaugurations and laying of foundation stones of various development projects at the rally venue as a ‘gift’ from her to the people of Pabna, the prime minister said once the construction of the two units of the Rooppur nuclear power plant is completed, many employment opportunities would be created here.Earlier, the prime minister inaugurated 31 development projects and laid foundation stones of 18 development projects through unveiling plaques from the rally venue.last_img read more
