Sandeep Dixit’s St. Stephen’s barb triggers war of words

first_imgA war of words has broken out in one of the most prestigious colleges in India, St. Stephen’s College, Delhi. After Delhi MP Sandeep Dikshit hit out at his alma mater, alleging that it is being run like a communal institution, another Stephanian and senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar soon contradicted him and claimed that the secular character of the institute has not been compromised. Dikshit lashed out soon after his removal from the governing body of the college and proposal to induct a sitting Delhi High Court judge Justice Sanjay Krishan Kaul.  Sandeep Dikhit’s comments against his own alma mater, which was founded 130 years ago, has done nothing to diminish the popularity of St Stephen’s among admission seekers. Thousands of students have been flocking to the college at the beginning of the admission season in Delhi University. They feel that Dikshit is way off the mark in dubbing the institution as communal. Congress MP and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s son Sandeep Dikshit says, “The leadership in St Stephen’s looks at people with a communal bent of mind. They distinguish and discriminate between people belonging to different communities.” Dikhshit hit out at those at the college’s helm branding them as incompetent. “The leadership is embroiled far more in its own continuity and preservation. Their own qualifications are dodgy to put at best,” Dikshit added. He was on board as the alumni representative to the body since October 28, 2009.  But the administration denies removing him from the post, contending he was never there in the first place. Stephen’s principal Valson Thampu says, “He never accepted this offer. He never became a member, so where does the question of removing him arise? He is trying to mislead the nation.” Thampu further says, “I can’t be silent…because the attack is not on a person but on St Stephen’s, which is a national treasure…Last year, we had 28,000 applications. I see its growing relevance. We must go by facts. It’s treated as the Mecca of education.” “It’s a serious charge: the communalism charge. There’s no doubt that it’s a minority institution. It’s a sad day when a member of Parliament cannot distinguish between minority rights and communalism. I would like him to substantiate his comment in what way we are communal. If he has made statement in public, he’s duty-bound to explain where and how this college is communal,” Thampu added.  But has a rot set in at this premier institute? For sure, the college’s demography has undergone a change in the past. In June 2007, college administrators increased the preferential admissions quota for Christians to 40 per cent. Another 5 per cent was reserved for sports quota, open to Christian candidates as well. The cut-off for Christian students is 15 per cent lower than the general students. But despite all that the students are not ready to buy Dikshit’s version. “There is a quota for students, but it’s a minority institute, so it is their discretion,” says a student, while another says, “I don’t think it is communal in any way.” “Stephen’s has a lot of place in its heart for every community,” says another.  Even ex-Stephanians don’t agree with the Congress MP’s assessment. Aiyar said, “There might be small glitches here and there, but the institutional integrity of St Stephen’s is such that it shall never become a Hindu College.”advertisementlast_img read more

DeMarcus Cousins to get his first playoff chance at last

first_imgIn this Feb. 2, 2019, file photo, Golden State Warriors’ Andre Iguodala, right, tries to move DeMarcus Cousins, center, away from Los Angeles Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma, left, during an NBA basketball game in Oakland, Calif. Cousins cannot wait for his playoff chance at last. He has anticipated this moment so many times and it never happened. That is why he approached the Warriors last summer and asked for a chance, even though he was working back from season-ending surgery for a torn left Achilles tendon. Cousins joined the two-time defending champions for $5.3 million and this very opportunity. (AP Photo/Ben Margot, File)OAKLAND, California— DeMarcus Cousins shoves off assistant coach Jarron Collins and goes hard for the basket. He swishes a 3-pointer from up top, then hits a jumper inside the arc on the right wing. Cousins drives to the hoop and makes a shot from close range, then a turnaround jumper goes in before he moves to the left side to begin the sequence again.Long before the rest of the Golden State regulars have taken the court for pregame warmups, there is Cousins, earbuds in, meticulously focused on his preparation. In the locker room, he is one of the first to pull on his game jersey.ADVERTISEMENT Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated “He’s a fantastic human being, a great teammate. You see his frustration and his passion on the court so people automatically sort of attach labels to him. What I see is passion and emotion because he wants to win.”Teammate Shaun Livingston can only imagine what Cousins’ first playoffs will mean after a nine-year wait, and after all the hours of rehab. Livingston has lived through the grueling recovery from a major injury like Cousins just endured.“We’re all going to be excited for him, and he’s going to be excited,” Livingston said. “I expect him to have a great playoffs because he shows up big in big games.”Livingston’s left leg could have been amputated 12 years ago, and the knee injury he suffered while with the Clippers in 2007 was so serious nobody knew if he’d walk again let alone play basketball. Going for a layup, Livingston’s leg buckled backward, parallel to the court, when he fell in a freak accident.So, he can certainly relate to Cousins’ comeback challenges. Livingston offered an encouraging word whenever Cousins seemed to need that boost or encouragement.“It’s pretty gratifying to see that. … It feels good to see somebody that, you go through the struggle and then you’re able to come back and have success at this level,” Livingston said. “Put in a lot of work, more importantly what is fulfilling to see is to see the hard work pay off, because I remember the hard work he’s put in, getting to the gym early, getting his routine in. He’s put in a lot of work into his body so he could come out and play and perform on the court.”Cousins has taken his offensive game to another level, finding a rhythm in Golden State’s offense and finding the open teammate with solid ball movement. Before his return, Cousins insisted he understood how things might be in a starting lineup of All-Stars: “It’s obvious I won’t be taking as many shots as I have in the past,” he said.He is dangerous from anywhere, shooting the 3, moving well and drawing defenders to him. One of the NBA’s most dominant big men when healthy, he is taking charges on the defensive end and altering shots.“I never doubt DeMarcus. He’s another guy that’s got great pride, great competitor,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “He’s always just wanted to be a part of a winning team and a winning organization. Now he has that here. He’s a guy that he often gets overlooked because of the amount of talent and depth this team.“You worry about this team at the 3-point line, well DeMarcus is a guy that in the playoffs you can go to and pound the ball inside into the post, he’s going to score, get fouled, or create a double-team and find an open teammate. What a great luxury to have.” Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles LATEST STORIES PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Cousins patiently worked back from a nearly yearlong absence after getting hurt in January 2018 with New Orleans, calling it one of the hardest things he has gone through emotionally and physically in his career. He made his Warriors debut Jan. 18 on the road against the Clippers, showing quickly he would make a big impact on both ends of the floor.The four-time All-Star center’s shooting stroke returned in a hurry. For him, finally getting back was largely conditioning and gaining strength in the leg to handle the rigors, pace and low-post pounding of an NBA game again.“What does he call it, the Resurgence?” Stephen Curry said. “… We like his fire. In terms of the playoffs, it’s going to be amazing, it’s his first run, it’s going to be good.”The 28-year-old Cousins steadily found a groove and more minutes in coach Steve Kerr’s rotations. He no longer glares at the coach for taking him out of games.“He has been so much fun to coach,” Kerr said. “And I wouldn’t have said that before he came back when he was rehabbing, he was not that much fun to coach. He would agree with that, he was so frustrated from the injury and from not being able to play and the length of his rehab.

Southampton’s Sofiane Boufal left to hold his head as Stoke escape

first_imgThe Observer Premier League Asked whether this stalemate, which keeps his side teetering above the relegation zone, will affect his future as manager, Pellegrino replied: “For me, the most important now is Southampton. This is more important than me. It’s more important than the players, the manager, every single person that works.”Southampton were roundly booed off at half-time and at the final whistle, with the worry that they are sleepwalking towards the Championship. Pellegrino is concerned about his players’ mentality but there is no quick fix. “For managers, the easier things are the tactical or technical things to put players on the pitch but to connect with human beings who have their feelings, beliefs and values,” he said. “We have to be behind them, support them and be demanding because, at this level, it’s not easy to be there.”Neither team was truly rattled in a poor first half but Lambert introduced Peter Crouch at the interval and the former Saints striker made an immediate impact, flicking on a header for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to race through on goal, but he scooped the ball harmlessly over Alex McCarthy.Xherdan Shaqiri cut a frustrated figure throughout, none more so than when fuming at Mame Biram Diouf’s failure to latch on to his pass, with the Stoke pair through two on one, with Jack Stephens, the Southampton defender, backpedalling. But Shaqiri supplied Stoke’s attacking vigour, flighting a wonderful diagonal pass for the onrushing Badou Ndiaye, only for the January signing to glance wide.“He [Shaqiri] excites you when he’s got the ball; he makes things happen and he has been outstanding in the six games I’ve been here,” Lambert said. “He can keep doing his frustration if he keeps doing what he’s been doing, because he’s genuinely a world-class footballer.” Topics Everton fans turn on Allardyce as Chris Wood completes Burnley comeback Read more With full-time approaching, Southampton swarmed the Stoke back line but never with belief – more in a state of panic. Butland superbly denied Nathan Redmond late on, getting a left hand to the Southampton winger’s curling effort before gleefully cradling Josh Sims’s devious low cross, preventing Guido Carrillo, the £19m club-record signing, notching his first goal since arriving from Monaco in January.“I think he’s the best one around and I think he’s got a fabulous future ahead of him,” Lambert said of the England goalkeeper. “He’s a proper bloke, just a really nice professional, low maintenance and looks after himself.”The Southampton substitute Sofiane Boufal squandered the best chance, though, heading wide after leaping high to meet Redmond’s cross. Neither team’s run-in makes for pleasant viewing and, after failing to seize three priceless points here, both are in for an uneasy ride until May.

This stalemate does few favours for either side, with the outlook increasingly bleak after both teams seemingly froze with fear in a dour meeting in which profligacy ruled.Paul Lambert’s side also had Jack Butland to thank for what the manager described as world‑class saves but the painful reality is Southampton’s attack – nothing short of slapstick in nature at times – failed to infiltrate the leakiest defence in the division.Saints supporters have had little to shout about on home turf for a while; they have won just four league games here in the past 13 months. This result made history for the wrong reasons: a record eighth successive Premier League home game without victory. With nine matches left, three of which are at home, including Manchester City’s visit on the last day of the season, the numbers are simply not adding up for Mauricio Pellegrino.

UN voices concern over demolitions settlement approval in East Jerusalem

13 July 2010The United Nations today expressed concern over the demolition by Israeli authorities of buildings, including homes, and the approval of the construction of a new settlement in East Jerusalem, urging all parties to respect international law and avoid provocative actions. “I continue to follow with concern developments in East Jerusalem and continuing tensions in the city. The approval of new units in the settlement of Pisgat Zeev, in violation of Israel’s Roadmap commitments, is wrong,” said Robert Serry, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process.The Roadmap is the internationally approved plan for a two-State solution to the Middle East conflict.“I am also concerned at reports of house demolitions today,” said Mr. Serry, who added that his office is closely monitoring the fate of four members of the Palestinian Legislative Council who face the threat of expulsion from the city.Israel is reportedly considering revoking the residency permits of Muhammad Abu-Teir, Ahmad Attoun, Muhammad Totah, and Khaled Abu Arafeh, all current or former members of the Palestinian Legislative Council and long-time residents of East Jerusalem. The Israeli High Court of Justice is scheduled to consider their case on 6 September.“At the current juncture, it is essential for all parties to respect international law, refrain from provocative actions, and take positive steps to build confidence and create an environment conducive to successful negotiations,” Mr. Serry said in a statement.Israeli bulldozers have reportedly demolished six buildings, including at least three homes, in East Jerusalem today.According to an April 2009 report by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Israeli authorities have, since 1967, demolished thousands of Palestinian-owned structures in the occupied Palestinian territory, including an estimated 2,000 houses in East Jerusalem.Israel occupied the West Bank in 1967 and unilaterally annexed to its territory 70.5 square kilometres of the occupied area, which were subsequently integrated within the Jerusalem municipality. Irrespective of Israel’s annexation, East Jerusalem is still considered part of the occupied Palestinian territory and its Palestinian residents remain protected by international humanitarian law, the report noted. read more

More cash and effort needed to help Africa reach antipoverty goals UN

UN Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator Mark Malloch Brown painted a mixed global picture when speaking to reporters at a press conference on the final day of the 57th Annual conference of the UN Department of Public Information (DPI) and NGOs, which this year was devoted to assessing progress in reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) set by a 2000 summit meeting.”In large parts of the world, particularly Asia, where the largest concentration of poor people live, we are more on track than many people understand,” he said of the MDGs, which seek to rehabilitate the world’s social fabric, from slashing extreme poverty and hunger to cutting infant mortality to curbing major diseases, all by 2015.But he painted a desperate picture for Africa, where last year’s development report postponed any hope of halving poverty from 2015 to 2147. “Now this year the actual trend line is even worse and so we said we can no longer put a date on it. At the current trend poverty would never halve in Africa,” he warned.The global community cannot carry on with “current benign trends or business as usual” since a huge effort for change is needed in developing countries themselves and in donor countries supporting them, Mr. Malloch Brown said.”What we are hearing this week (from the meeting) is that sense of urgency and alarm but also the united support of civil society that is going to be a key component of the political coalition which gets us back on track,” he added.To get the world back on track requires more trade and growth and more domestic expenditure by developing countries and much will be determined by the investment decisions of India, China, Bangladesh and other very large Asian developing countries. But clearly the original additional annual bill of $50 billion to be footed by the international donor community has been overtaken.”We’re three or four years later,” Mr. Malloch Brown said. “And so today the bill is increasing, not decreasing.” But he declined to say by how much more. He stressed the importance of micro-credits in progressing towards the goals. A strong domestic private sector in developing countries starting with micro-financing, which is essential, but building up through small- and medium-size enterprises there will never be the growth and job creation needed to meet the MDGs, he warned.Jacques Attali, President of PlaNet Finance NGO, also underlined the key importance of micro-credit. Five years ago only 25 million people used micro-credits. “Now there are 60 million – a tremendous growth and a tremendous success – and we hope according to the MDGs that we can reach 200 million in the next five years,” he said. read more

How Foursquare is mining its data to find larger trends

first_imgFoursquare isn’t just a convenient and popular check-in service. It might look that way on the surface, but any time you have an operation that big, amassing that much information, there will be lots to learn from the data you collect. And that doesn’t mean the selling of individual data or spying on users, but rather the ability to see larger trends within the data pool. Figuring out what you want to look for and what metrics will point you in the right direction is the hard bit, but it can be done.Foursquare posted on their engineering blog explaining how they determined the world’s rudest cities. That might seem impossible with just check-in data, but what they did was scan all their data for the use of profanity and then localize that data by city. It turns out Manchester in the United Kingdom has the highest percentage of curse words, which Foursquare translates into the rudest people (though it actually might just be the group that most needs its mouth washed out with soap).We also find out that going through that much data was a bit tougher than running some script you wrote while having a burrito. The query used wasn’t particularly complex, but that’s the easy part. The tough part was getting the data from Amazon’s S3 storage through Apache Hadoop/Apache Hive and then through the data servers on to the requesting clients. Using their own data servers allowed 4SQ to do fun things like cache results, limit user impact on production servers, and to just make things easier to use in general.Reports like these can give users all the important data they need, like how many people from the Vatican checked into Super Bowl parties.Any clever ideas out there for what else you could glean from Foursquare’s data?last_img read more

Surface Pro 2 cant compete with battery life of similarly specced MacBook

first_imgApple might want to copy the Surface by offering an iPad Keyboard Cover, but one thing it shouldn’t copy is its battery life. Initial hands-on testing show the Surface Pro 2 can barely manage 60% of the run time of an 11-inch MacBook Air.As Coding Horror points out, the 2013 Haswell MacBook Air squeezes just over 11 hours out of its 38Wh battery. The Surface Pro 2 — also powered by a Haswell chip — has a 42Wh battery and yet it only lasts for around 7 hours.The hardware inside the devices isn’t identical, obviously, but it’s quite similar. Close enough, certainly, that if the software was the same on both the Air and Surface Pro 2 the numbers should be much closer. It’s possible that OS X is just that much more efficient than Windows 8.1.There are loads of contributing factors here — not the least of which is the size and complexity of the Windows hardware ecosystem. Microsoft has to support a huge number of desktops, laptops, mainboards, video cards, network adapters, and peripherals. Apple, on the other hand, can focus on optimizing for a much smaller product line-up.But with the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2, Microsoft has complete control over both the hardware and software. You’d figure that they’ve chosen the optimal configuration to achieve maximum battery life on their hero device.Sure, it’s easy to say that apples-and-oranges are being compared when you pit the Surface Pro 2 against the 11-inch MacBook Air. There are loads of differences between the two devices, but that doesn’t change the fact that Apple has delivered astonishing battery life on its flagship ultraportable and Microsoft simply hasn’t.last_img read more

Oméga3 manger du poisson allongerait lespérance de vie des personnes âgées

first_imgOméga-3 : manger du poisson allongerait l’espérance de vie des personnes âgéesSelon une étude, les personnes de 65 ans et plus ayant les niveaux d’omega-3 les plus élevés dans leur sang vivent en moyenne 2,2 ans de plus que ceux ayant des taux inférieurs. Ceci suggère que consommer des poissons riches en acide gras pourrait allonger l’espérance de vie.Si l’on savait déjà que les poissons gras sont des aliments de choix à inclure dans une alimentation équilibrée, c’est un nouveau rappel que viennent de donner des chercheurs américains. Selon leur étude publiée lundi dans la revue Annals of Internal Medicine, manger du poisson pourrait en effet permettre aux personnes âgées de vivre plus longtemps.Pour arriver à cette conclusion, les chercheurs de l’université de Harvard (Massachusetts) et de l’université de l’Etat de Washington ont analysé pas moins de 16 années de statistiques portant sur 2.700 adultes de 65 ans et plus aux États-Unis. Ceci leur a permis de constater que les personnes âgés de plus de 65 ans qui présentent des taux d’omega-3 élevés vivent en moyenne 2,2 ans de plus que les autres. Cela équivaut à un risque de mortalité réduit de 27% et même de 35% quand ce risque est causé par des maladies cardiovasculaires.”La consommation de poissons riches en acide gras est considérée depuis longtemps comme une nourriture saine mais peu de recherches avaient évalué jusqu’alors les effets bénéfiques des oméga-3 pour la santé d’adultes plus âgés”, explique à l’AFP le Dr Dariush Mozaffarian, professeur adjoint d’épidémiologie et co-auteur de ces travaux.Du poisson riche en omégas-3 mais pas de complément alimentaireÀ lire aussiVoici pourquoi il faut éviter les aliments ultra-transformésOr, “les résultats de cette recherche confirme l’importance de niveaux suffisants d’omega-3 dans le sang pour la santé cardiovasculaire et laisse penser que, plus tard dans la vie, ces bienfaits pourraient en fait prolonger le nombre d’années restant à vivre”, estime-t-il. D’autant que les personnes qui ont été suivies (et qui étaient toutes en bonne santé au début de l’étude) n’ont pas consommé d’oméga-3 sous forme de complément alimentaire et provenant d’huile de poisson. Les chercheurs ont donc pu évaluer les effets potentiels d’une consommation régulière de poisson sur de multiples causes de mortalité, indépendamment de toute prise de compléments alimentaires.Le 2 avril 2013 à 18:35 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

We havent been able to uproot the militants

first_imgAsaduzzaman Khan Kamal. File PhotoA year has passed since the militant attack on Holey Artisan Bakery, but many questions remain unanswered. Investigations into the incident remain incomplete. Home minister Asaduzzaman Khan talked to Prothom Alo in an exclusive interview.Prothom Alo: With one militant den after the other being uncovered, how satisfied are you with the steps against militancy?Asaduzzaman Khan: We have not been able to completely uproot the militants, but most of the top militants, the leaders and organisers, have been caught. The remaining ones may include supporters of the ideology or activists, but there is no one capable of taking leadership at present.PA: But you haven’t managed to catch the five persons who were actually the ones behind the scenes in last year’s Holey Artisan Bakery attack.AK: They remain behind the scenes. Many of those who have been caught, are now mentioning many other names. These seem to be based on assumptions. But we have caught all those against whom we have information, except retired major Ziaul Huq.PA: Where is Ziaul Huq now?AK: We are rather unclear about that and haven’t been able to locate him.PA: If all the top leaders have been caught, then why is it taking so long to come up with the investigation report for the Holey Artisan Bakery case?AK: We want an accurate report. We need a few more elements to finalise the report. Italian, Japanese and Indian nationals were killed in the incident, as well as our own officers. Unless proper charge sheets are issued, proper sentences can’t be passed against the accused. We will finalise the report very soon.PA: Certain photographs of Hasnat Karim and Tahmid Khan appeared in the media. This gave rise to all sorts of questions in the media, especially the social media.AK: The charge sheet will state everything about the roles everyone played.PA: Why did the government not take up any programme marking the one-year anniversary of the Holey Artisan Bakery attack? Japan and Italy sent representatives to commemorate the day.AK: We told the Holey Artisan Bakery authorities to set up a dais and make necessary arrangements to show respect to the victims. The home ministry paid its respects there. There were condolence meetings and discussions in various places and we extended our cooperation.PA: When such disastrous occurrences take place, generally speaking, a commission is formed to look into the matter and unearth the truth. This happened in the US after the 1/11 attack and in Bangladesh after the Pilkhana incident. Why was no such commission formed for the Holey Artisan Bakery attack?AK: No such demand or appeal was made. In accordance with the prime minister’s orders, we are jointly working towards finding out who were behind the incident.PA: Before the 1 July incident, did any other country issue a warning or did your intelligence have any information?AK: Our intelligence discerned that something big was being planned. But that was just an assumption. There was no information as to when this would happen or who would be carrying this out. We did not get any information from outside. A lot of intelligence information comes in from outside which later doesn’t prove to be true. But there are certain matters which we take into cognizance. A foreign agency had told us something serious was to take place at the Dhamrai fair and we closed it down for a day. We do take note of certain important information like that.PA: The operations against the militants continue, that is, the use of force. But there is gaping inadequacy when it comes to the social or political motivation for the prevention of militancy.AK: We have done a lot to mobilise public opinion. I sat with the ulema (Islamic scholars) every day. I held meetings with leaders of the Hindu, Buddhist and Christian faiths every day. I visited the madrassas in various districts, held human chains. I had repeated meetings with representatives of various universities and the education ministry. Anti-militant material is being included in the syllabuses. I have held meetings with the cultural ministry and its relevant departments, telling them to step up their activities. I have had extensive meetings with madrassa teachers. Our anti-militant committee is also working in full strength. This all has turned people around. When debate emerged over khutba (sermons) in the mosques, we advised the imams to first discuss the matters before delivering the sermons. It is true, however, that those in charge of this have not been able to carry this task out properly.PA: Then there is this debate about the presence of IS. Why are you not admitting the presence of IS?AK: IS is an international group or ideology. Why will it be instilled here? There were attempts to link up with Al Qaeda, that failed. Whenever any incident occurred in Bangladesh, photographs were uploaded within five minutes. This was done as a part of an international conspiracy. Just because it is the same website, how can you prove it’s IS? They might have contact over the internet, but IS has no presence in Bangladesh. It is true that Tamim Chowdhury, known as the mastermind behind the Holey Artisan Bakery attack, came from abroad. We asked Canada for his pictures, passport and all information. We found out that a certain Tamim Chowdhury entered Bangladesh quite some time back, but we did not think he came and established IS here. Prior to that, a British national of Bangladeshi origin had come and he was suspected to be IS. But he later left.Then there were those involved in religion-based politics who went underground and formed various organisations. Most of them are former leaders or workers of Jamaat and Shibir.PA: Politically, BNP was blamed after the killing of the Italian national Cesare Tavella and the Japanese national Kunio Hoshi.AK: We have proof of BNP leader Qayyum’s involvement in the killing of Cesare Tavella. He provided the funding.PA: Who are funding the militancy?AK: Funds are coming in from various groups in Saudi Arabia and various countries of the Middle East. Investigations are being carried out. These funds don’t come through the banking system, they come by hundi (informal money transfer) and so it is hard to detect.PA: Are you receiving any ‘logistic support’ from outside to tackle the militants?AK: We are not getting any such support, but there is sharing of intelligence. That is nothing specific, just based on hypothetical. But many are interested in helping out with investigations.PA: The militants are being released one after the other on bail. Is nothing being done about that?AK: This is very unfortunate. Sometimes there are no witnesses, sometimes we delay in submitting the charge sheet, and perhaps the state prosecutors are not competent enough. We will soon be holding meetings with the concerned persons. Then again, the judiciary is independent.PA: Word is going round that the government has reached an understanding with Hefazat?AK: I am the home minister. Have to work with everyone to prevent militancy. I have told the Hefazat leaders that we can at last reach a minimum level of understanding. We have told them that there is no use in being divided, that they should unify. They have six boards and 11 groups. Now they have united. Allama Shah Ahmad Shafi and Junaid Babunagari have agreed to this. They are speaking against militancy. Shah Ahmad Shafi has even raised his hands in prayer for the prime minister. I think this is something good.PA: How many young people have gone to Syria from Bangladesh? Do you have any information on this? Or have any come from Syria to Bangladesh?AK: No one has gone from Bangladesh. We know that many of Bangladeshi origin have gone from Britain, Singapore and Japan. No one has managed to come here from Syria. There are strict instructions regarding them.PA: It is heard that Rohingyas are getting involved in militancy?AK: We have taken this matter very seriously. Driven by poverty, they may get involved in such activities. They can easily be lured into this. As it is, they have already become involved in all sorts of crime.PA: What measures are you taking to rehabilitate the young persons who want to give up militancy and return to normal life.AK: We are providing financial and other forms of assistance to those who have surrendered. They will be kept under surveillance. We are assisting them in any way they need. We have appealed to the militants to give up their destructive ways. We will provide all support.PA: Thank you.AK: Thank you. *The interview originally published in Prothom Alo Bangla print edition has been rewritten in English by Ayesha Kabir.last_img read more

Gold nanoparticle used to replace virus in new CRISPR approach

first_img More information: Kunwoo Lee et al. Nanoparticle delivery of Cas9 ribonucleoprotein and donor DNA in vivo induces homology-directed DNA repair, Nature Biomedical Engineering (2017). DOI: 10.1038/s41551-017-0137-2AbstractClustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)–CRISPR associated protein 9 (Cas9)-based therapeutics, especially those that can correct gene mutations via homology-directed repair, have the potential to revolutionize the treatment of genetic diseases. However, it is challenging to develop homology-directed repair-based therapeutics because they require the simultaneous in vivo delivery of Cas9 protein, guide RNA and donor DNA. Here, we demonstrate that a delivery vehicle composed of gold nanoparticles conjugated to DNA and complexed with cationic endosomal disruptive polymers can deliver Cas9 ribonucleoprotein and donor DNA into a wide variety of cell types and efficiently correct the DNA mutation that causes Duchenne muscular dystrophy in mice via local injection, with minimal off-target DNA damage. Gene-editing alternative corrects Duchenne muscular dystrophy CRISPR-associated protein Cas9 (white) from Staphylococcus aureus based on Protein Database ID 5AXW. Credit: Thomas Splettstoesser (Wikipedia, CC BY-SA 4.0) CRISPR-Cas9 has been in the news a lot lately because it allows researchers to directly edit genes—either disabling unwanted parts or replacing them altogether. But despite many success stories, the technique still suffers from a major deficit that prevents it from being used as a true medical tool—it sometimes makes mistakes. Those mistakes can cause small or big problems for a host depending on what goes wrong. Prior research has suggested that the majority of mistakes are due to delivery problems, which means that a replacement for the virus part of the technique is required. In this new effort, the researchers report that they have discovered just a such a replacement, and it worked so well that it was able to repair a gene mutation in a Duchenne muscular dystrophy mouse model. The team has named the new technique CRISPR-Gold, because a gold nanoparticle was used to deliver the gene editing molecules instead of a virus.The new package was created by modifying a bit of DNA to cause it to stick to a gold nanoparticle and then a Cas9 protein and also an RNA guide. The package was then coated with a polymer that served as a containment casing—one that also triggered endocytosis (a form of cell transport) and helped the molecules escape endosomes once inside the target cells. The molecules then set to work—the Cas9 cut the target DNA strand, the guide RNA showed what needed to be done and a DNA strand was placed where a mutation had existed. The result was a gene free of a mutation that causes Duchenne muscular dystrophy.There is still a major problem to overcome with the technique, however—it only works in localized applications. Ideally, a mass of packages would be injected into the bloodstream allowing for repair of all cell types, such as muscles impaired by a mutant gene. Explore further (Phys.org)—A team of researchers from the University of California and the University of Tokyo has found a way to use the CRISPR gene editing technique that does not rely on a virus for delivery. In their paper published in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering, the group describes the new technique, how well it works and improvements that need to be made to make it a viable gene editing tool.center_img Journal information: Nature Biomedical Engineering © 2017 Phys.org Citation: Gold nanoparticle used to replace virus in new CRISPR approach (2017, October 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-10-gold-nanoparticle-virus-crispr-approach.html This document is subject to copyright.

Nicaraguas Pastora confirms request to obtain navigation rights on Costa Rican river

first_imgEdén Pastora, the Nicaraguan government official responsible for dredging the Río San Juan, confirmed Wednesday to local Channel 15 that Nicaragua asked the International Court of Justice in The Hague for navigation rights on the Río Colorado, located entirely within Costa Rican territory.The local daily El Diario de Hoy reported that after being questioned about whether Nicaragua had formalized a request to gain navigation rights on the Río Colorado, Pastora said, “This government of Daniel Ortega … applies the logic of  ‘what’s good for the goose is good for the gander’; if [Costa Rica] can navigate our waters, why can’t we travel the waters of the Río Colorado, if 90 percent of its water is from the Río San Juan?”“Until we can establish a safe harbor in Punta Castilla [the mouth of the Río San Juan], we can freely navigate Río Colorado, according to the 1858 Cañas-Jerez Treaty,” Pastora said.Referring to the continuance of work on a border road by the Costa Rican government, the former Sandinista guerrilla told the daily that “the Tico government’s only intentions are to keep provoking.”“The Río San Juan dredging bothered them, so they responded with a trail that they will later call a road. … They will continue endangering nature in Nicaragua and Costa Rica,”  Pastora said.
