Asian Football Confederation allows 2022 World Cup hosts Qatar to play in qualifiers

first_imgQatar’s national football team will be permitted to play in the preliminary qualifying rounds of the 2022 World Cup despite being given an automatic berth in the finals as tournament hosts, the Asian Football Confederation has said.Under the current system, the 12 teams advancing to the final phase of Asian qualifying for 2022 also secure places at the finals of the Asian Cup the following year.The AFC said the decision was made at a meeting of its competition committee on Tuesday and that, pending FIFA approval, Qatar would also be allowed to play in the final phase of 2022 qualifying should they advance.The AFC has also said it would continue to work with federations in the Gulf region to ensure broadcasts of Asian qualifying matches for next year’s World Cup in Russia, as well as Asian Champions League broadcasts, would not be interrupted by ongoing diplomatic issues.Qatari broadcaster BeIn Sports, a division of the Al Jazeera network, holds the exclusive broadcast rights for matches under the control of the AFC for the Middle East region, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.Those three countries, along with Egypt, severed diplomatic and travel ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants. Doha denies the claims.Lin Xiaohua, who chaired the discussion after Saoud Al Mohannadi, a Qatari, recused himself, said it was important the AFC defended its commercial rights.”This is an extremely complex situation but we are pleased to have received reassurances from SAFF and UAEFA that they have no objection to the AFC delivering the international television feed for the games in Saudi Arabia and the UAE,” said Lin.advertisement”The committee recognises that it is important that the AFC commercial rights be defended and we are confident that the positive work, which is taking place to ensure the matches go ahead, continues.”The diplomatic situation has already resulted in FIFA changing the officials due to take charge of a World Cup qualifier between Thailand and the UAE in June. A referee from Qatar had originally been slated to take charge of that match.The confederation said it would continue to liaise with FIFA over the two remaining World Cup qualifying matches to be played by both Saudi Arabia and the UAE.Saudi Arabia travel to face the UAE on Aug. 29 before hosting Japan on Sept. 5. The UAE play Iraq in Tehran in their final game.The AFC also announced an increase in prize money for the Asian Champions League from 2018, with the winners receiving $3 million and the runners-up claiming $1.5 million.last_img read more

Arsenal have only failed to score in two of their last 19 league games against Crystal Palace – the 0-3 loss last season and a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park in October 1997. After losing their first three home league games of the season without scoring, Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last six at Selhurst Park (W3 D3 L0) and have scored exactly two goals in each game. Arsenal have only won two Premier League away games this season – their joint-fewest tally after nine away games of a campaign in the Premier League era (level with 1994-95, 1998-99, 2000-01 and 2005-06). Arsenal have kept a clean sheet in all three of their Premier League London derbies this season – they haven’t gone four London derbies without conceding since February 1999. Mesut Özil has had a hand in nine goals in his last 10 Premier League appearances for Arsenal (four goals, five assists). Arsene Wenger will take charge of his 810 th game as a Premier League manager in this match; equalling Sir Alex Ferguson’s Premier League record.

Corruption felled dignity

first_imgA four-time former finance minister of India is now in police (CBI) remand. CBI had marked him as an accomplice of Karti Chidambaram a little more than a year ago while the Enforcement Directorate (ED) sought him out on charges of money laundering too. All courts believed he did no wrong and lent him, from time to time, protection from arrest. Emboldened, he sought anticipatory bail from Delhi High Court. He was heard and so was CBI, which presented its case in full-throttle. This was earlier in 2019. A few days ago, the High Court in denying him bail also observed: first, that the case is a classic case of money laundering; second, that Chidambaram is the kingpin in the case and third, it is not a case of political vendetta. And, to cut the long story short, he was arrested and has been remanded in CBI custody for custodial interrogation. Also Read – A special kind of bondThis custody has, among some cognizant, raised a hornet’s nest. The country’s TV channels have gone to town and on Thursday, August 23, several of them debated, right through the day, about the arrest and consequent remand. Since I participated in several channels, let me attempt to state what transpired. The debaters vocally put forth several arguments against the arrest, which broadly echoed the following. When the judge was to retire in 48 hours, his order denying bail and a 24-page virtual judgement, as if it were after trial, was improper. CBI had overacted by dramatically scaling the walls to arrest Chidambaram, incorrectly presuming that he was evading them; they could have waited for the orders of the Supreme Court since his appeal was already pending with it. Moreover, when Karti has all the properties and 22 bank accounts, arrest of Chidambaram was unwarranted and unconstitutional. Further, not arresting five other members of FIPB and going for the throat of Chidambaram highlights the bias of CBI. It was even argued that there was no tenable legal or investigating ground to arrest him when he had been appearing before the agency whenever called, and that he was not a fugitive like Vijaya Mallya, Nirav Modi, etc. Through the brash action, CBI has only spoiled its image – it was indeed a defamatory action, one of the debaters averred. Also Read – Insider threat managementAs the only former CBI officer on various panels, I was well prepared with my response. The 24-page High Court order can be the only basis for CBI action. It called him (Chidambaram) kingpin and the material evidence against him as representing a classic case of money laundering. In all his appearances before CBI, he has been evasive and uncooperative. The CrPC and Indian Evidence Act is there for arrest and custodial investigation; subsequently, collecting evidence from accused is legal and not unconstitutional. By dismissing his security and driver while also switching off and getting rid of his mobile soon after the High Court order, Chidambaram hoodwinked the CBI into thinking that he was slipping into hiding. CBI measures then countered that possibility effectively. Further, it must be remembered that investigation of crime also ensnares those (Chidambaram) who make it profitable to others (Karti & Co) who have done nothing to make a living except indulging in crime. The value of custodial interrogation and evidence collected through that area is beyond members of the panel and when they find fault with it they are out of their ken. On allegations of vendetta by the ruling party and misuse of CBI, I readily conceded. Nevertheless, Chidambaram has been arrested as High Court calls him kingpin of this crime. I also conceded that CBI’s record in political cases is questionable and the present CJI on CBI Founders Memorial said so in as many words. The Centre misuses CBI, and as CJI said, “political oversight” is wrong. One must remember that during NDA’s rule under PM Vajpayee the Justice Malimuth Committee had proposed changes in our codes to eliminate or reduce political oversight. Despite the Criminal Procedure Code (Amendment) 2005 having received the President’s assent after incorporating some changes that would reduce/eliminate political oversight over criminal investigations, it is not being implemented as a law yet. Why – because both Centre and states want to latch on to the advantage of gaining from political oversight in criminal investigation. Further, the FIPB members were not taking bribes. The conspiracy by Chidambaram and Karti is clear and confirmed. Therefore, the fact that those members are not accused is not relevant to the defence of the former finance minister. The scaling wall pictures did undeniably spoil CBI’s image. CBI could have avoided that scenario. Blocking exit points inconspicuously and using a loudspeaker to summon the former finance minister would have been more acceptable. The former home and four-time finance minister, along with his only progeny Karti, is facing serious corruption charges. However, the effort of the opposition to make it a political issue is failing. Courts may deny further remand but then there is the Enforcement Directorate also left to face. Personal integrity in political circles is a quality deeply desired that does the country proud while honouring the person himself – like Lal Bhadur Shastri in the 60s, Rajesh Pilot in the recent past and nobody now.

Feds take new steps to warn about the hazards of getting high

first_imgOTTAWA (NEWS 1130) – The Trudeau government is pumping $15-million into community-based education about the risks of marijuana use.It’s the latest move from the federal government, which is ramping up its efforts to warn people about the risks of weed.“To ensure that everyone gets the facts regarding cannabis use,” Federal Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor said.The funding will be split between 13 organizations to run programs targeting young people, pregnant and breastfeeding women, and other at-risk segments of the population“On cannabis public education and awareness, prevention, and harm-reduction initiatives in communities right across Canada,” Petitpas Taylor added. “We want Canadians to make the smart choices.”The money will help frontline workers get the tools, resources, and training needed to run these programs.“Aimed at preventing and treating substance use, supporting community-led projects that raise awareness about the risks associated to cannabis use.”The minister says the on-the-ground work will compliment the national advertising campaign already underway from the government.The Boys and Girls Club, the Canadian Pediatric Society and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health are just some of the organizations that will benefit from the funding.last_img read more

Benkirane Jennifer Lopez Concert Contained Sexually Suggestive Scenes

Rabat – A week after the controversy sparked by singer Jennifer Lopez at the opening ceremony of the 14th annual Mawazine Festival in Rabat, Morocco’s head of government, Abdelilah Benkirane added his voice to a sizable number of Moroccans who expressed their outrage at the suggestive wardrobe of the American singer during her performance.The concert was broadcast by Moroccan channel 2M and was viewed by millions of viewers. During the concert and immediately following, scores of Moroccan took to social media and expressed their rejection of the “indecent” way in which “J-Lo” appeared on stage in “total disrespect of Morocco’s traditions.”Benkirane expressed his displeasure at the concert broadcast  by the public television network, pointing out that the concert contained sexually suggestive scenes. The concert contained “passages with sexual innuendo that undermine modesty, and provoke the religious and moral values of Moroccan society.”Benkirane added that the channel’s management did not make any effort to intervene to stop the broadcast of the concert despite the fact that it was not live, allowing for the possibility of editing to take place prior to broadcast.“The broadcast of the concert is a blatant violation of the Moroccan Constitution, of audiovisual legislation, and legal provisions related to the company SOREAD 2M,” Benkirane added.Based on this “flagrant violation,” Benkirane called on the High Authority for Audio-visual Communication (HACA) to take “its legal provisions regarding this violation, as it did with others.” read more

Addressing UN Assembly European leaders call for increased funds to ease refugee

King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands praised the UN for its 70-year role in producing a better world, from its role in halving extreme poverty to its peacekeeping.“What would today’s world look like without the United Nations?” he asked the assembled heads of State and Government. “There can be no doubt we would be worse off.”He deplored the “the tragic images” of families forced to flee their countries and leave everything behind in their search for a safe haven because the “despicable conduct” of tyrants, noting that the Netherlands has again increased its humanitarian aid, making it one of the largest donors in the world. “We call on other nations to follow suit and give additional support to the UN so it can provide food and shelter to all those who have been forced to flee, and give them a chance to rebuild their lives,” he said. Portuguese President Aníbal António Cavaco Silva stressed that no conflict, “no matter how complex it may be, may possibly justify barbarism, whether by States or by non-State parties, noting that human rights are the common heritage of all that must be defended regardless of geography.Aníbal António Cavaco Silva, President of Portugal, addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Amanda Voisard “The tragic humanitarian situation in Syria, Iraq, Libya and in many other conflict settings should prompt us to act in a supportive and responsible manner,” he said, praising the UN refugee agency for its humanitarian aid and calling for “strong, concerted responses and a determined fight by the international community” against terrorism. He also hailed the adoption by a UN summit last week of Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, called for “a lasting agreement that is global, fair and binding on all” to be reached at the Paris summit on climate change in December, and urged that the UN Security Council, now restricted to 15 members, be expanded “to mirror the realities of our world.”For his part, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Prime Minister of Denmark said that mass migration is obviously an immense “challenge for our societies; for our international cooperation and our solidarity. First and foremost, mass migration is a global challenge. We must address the root causes.”Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Prime Minister of Denmark, addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Amanda VoisardPeople migrate because they have lost hope at home, he said and inclusive economic growth in developing countries should be a common goal. “There are no easy solutions. The UN is an important part of the answer,” he said, stressing that while Member States have the primary responsibility for development and progress in their own countries, “we must all do our part and provide the necessary financial contributions to ensure that they succeed.”Denmark, he said, was ready to do its part and remained to the UN target of 0.7 percent target of gross national index (GNI) for official development assistance (ODA). In addition, Prime Minister Rasmussen’s Government had just last week decided to allocate some 100 million euros to humanitarian assistance and to measures that support the European efforts to address the mass migration from Syria and its neighbourhood.Swiss President Simonetta Sommaruga called for joint action in tackling the current refugee crisis in the Middle East and in Europe. “If each of us only looks after its own interests, we all lose out in the end: The migrants lose out and the solidarity between states falls by the wayside,” she warned. “We will all be judged on how we respond to this dramatic humanitarian challenge.”Simonetta Sommaruga, President of Switzerland, addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Amanda VoisardWhile acknowledging that the UN has made much progress in reducing poverty and peacekeeping, she stressed that much more needed to be done.“The fact that nearly 120,000 personnel are currently active in UN peacekeeping missions means that there are still far too many crises and wars in this world. We have 60 million displaced persons worldwide, more than at any time since the UN was founded,” she said, also warning that that many countries remain in abject poverty despite their natural wealth.“As we all know, when dealing with poverty and migration challenges, conflicts, terrorism, organised crime and climate change, collective action is vital to meet the needs of states and their citizens,” she declared.“The UN is more necessary than ever. What we need is a “strong UN for a better world”. States get the UN they deserve. It is up to us to strengthen it!” read more

Butter and salt are not a problem when it comes to heart

first_imgButter, crisps and salt are “not a problem” and eating them will not cause heart disease, a top cardiac surgeon has claimed.Samer Nashef, a consultant surgeon at Papworth hospital, suggested people should not modify their lifestyles to stop high cholesterol, which can trigger heart attacks and strokes.They should instead eat what they want, within reason, and take statins – cheap daily pills that reduce the cholesterol levels in the blood.The only things that can combat heart disease are stopping smoking, controlling diabetes or high blood pressure and losing weight if you are obese, he added.  The things that do not matter; butter, salt, crisps. These things are not problems Speaking to The Telegraph after the talk, he added: “I start from the principle that most people, like me, believe that they should not shift from an enjoyable lifestyle to a more restrictive one without solid evidence that there is real benefit in the shift.”When it comes to smoking and obesity, the evidence is overwhelming… the evidence for salt being harmful is nowhere near as clear cut, and the evidence for butter being harmful is virtually nonexistent.”The messianic zeal with which users of salt and butter are harangued is simply not justified by the data.” But Mr Nashef insisted that stopping smoking was the “most important” thing to do. “There are some things you can’t do anything about, I’ll tell you what they are; your family, your genes… you can’t change your parents, your age, sex,” he said.“Men do worse, old people do worse and people with terrible family history do worse. “There are some things that will definitely help. The first thing and most important is don’t smoke because that is absolutely a guarantee.”“Being obese is also bad, if you have a high blood pressure it must be controlled because that is a problem as well and diabetes should be controlled.”Mr Nashef said if he had a set of patients and one was young with no clear risk factors, he could guarantee they smoked. Mr Nashef’s book also claims patients should ask their surgeon when they are going on holiday as the mortality rate is just over double the day before a trip, when compared with the day after. “We looked at the patients operated on by me and my colleagues the day immediately after a holiday and the ones operated on on the day just before we went on holiday and then everybody else, the ones operated on far from holidays and we took the everyone else as a standard,” he said. “And what we found is that the patients operated on the day just before we went on holiday had a mortality rate that was a little bit more than double the ones operated on when we came back. “And that was a bit of a surprise, I wasn’t expecting the getting back to be that safe and there are possibly psychological reasons for that. One of them is being a little bit deskilled and rusty and out probably makes you a little bit more careful… and you don’t cut corners. I can’t prove that but I expect it is one element.”center_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

These things are not problems.”He later added: “If you have high cholesterol and you are worried about that and thinking of taking a statin then the best thing about it is you can take the statin, which will make your cholesterol drop so far that it doesn’t matter what you eat afterwards.”Statins have been the focus of a long-running debate for years, with many professionals claiming they carry the risk of serious and damaging side effects.For decades, health bodies, including the NHS, have also warned people not to consume excess saturated fats, claiming they can damage the heart.Current guidelines recommend that less than 10 per cent of daily calories are taken from saturated fats to reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes.last_img read more

Insituform Technologies receives expanded Australian mining contract – now valued at 214

first_imgUnited Pipeline Systems, a division of Insituform Technologies, has been awarded an additional $10.5 million for the supply and installation of its Tite Liner® HDPE solution in pipelines at the Sino Iron Ore project in Western Australia. This contract expands the $10.9 millionproject for themine previously announced in January 2010. The start date of United Pipeline Systems’ work on the original project was delayed until May 2011, when a new prime contractor was retained by the mine owner. In connection with that, United Pipeline Systems’ scope of work was increased by an additional $10.5 million. The large-scale magnetite iron ore project is the first of its kind in Australia and is the largest magnetite mining and processing operation in Australia. The installation of the Tite Liner product at this mine will protect over 60 km of slurry and process water pipelines. Protecting new slurry and process water pipelines with the Tite Line solution significantly extends the life of the pipeline.Randy Egner, International General Manager, United Pipeline Systems, said, “We are pleased to be working at the Sino iron ore mine and commend the mine owner’s decision to protect and extend the life of these pipelines.

This wind turbine caught fire and threw a flaming blade dozens of

first_imgA FLAMING WIND turbine blade almost sparked a forest fire in Cork after it was thrown several metres from the machine.The cause of the fire the wind farm in Cork is currently under investigation.A flaming 28-metre-long blade from one of the turbines flew as far as 100 metres away from the machine and landed close to nearby gorse and forestry.The turbine, a Gamesa G58, is a common model in operation across the world, but industry experts say it has ‘a strong safety record’.The incident occurred at the Cappaboy Beg Wind Farm in Co Cork on 19 June.A spokesperson for Bantry Fire Station told their main aim was to contain this fire, to ensure it didn’t spread to forest and gorse. The turbine was completely destroyed.They said it took ‘a couple of hours’ to bring the blaze under control due to dry conditions caused by a spell of good weather.Similar incidents, known as “blade throws”, can often occur during very high wind speeds.However, this incident, first reported by the Cork News (P10), occurred in relatively calm conditions but during one of the hottest spells so far this year. A peak of 280MWs of electrify was produced on the day of the incident. Source: EirGrid.ieProlificA source close to manufacturer Gamesa told this website that they are one of the most prolific machines with a ‘great reliability record’, and that there is little suspicion that it was a technical failure.It is understood an investigation is currently under-way.The source explained that turbines are complicated industrial equipment containing a large amount of electronics.“Rare combination”“You can have a spark and an oily rag, some rare combination like that”, he said, “It was a hot day with little wind and so a lot of dust could have accumulated.”He added that it is unlikely that blades on these common turbines would be thrown a large distance during a fire.“They’re made of plastic, and will simply melt,” he said.“The turbines themselves are build on hardstands consisting of rocks. Any plastic, or other material, that falls down is unlikely to spread.”Late last year, a Gamesa turbine at a separate farm close to Killybegs was the subject of an investigation after a blade tip snapped off, reNews reports.However, this incident occurred during high winds.An owner of the wind farm and the Irish Wind Energy Association both declined to comment on last month’s incidentRead: Wind meeting 2% more electricty demand than last year >More: These five graphs dig into the figures behind wind energy in Ireland >last_img read more

Poster confirms Battlefield 4 release date names first DLC

first_imgAt the beginning of April the official Xbox blog accidentally revealed the release date of Battlefield 4 as October 29. It was also only stated that the game was coming to the Xbox 360 on that date, suggesting there may be an exclusivity period.Now a poster has appeared reconfirming an October release date, but stating it’s going to be October 31. That makes sense, as the poster is from EBGames in Australia, and it’s typical to have a couple of days difference in launches between the US, Europe, and Australia.The poster offers more than just a date confirmation, though. There’s a bunch of information included such as details of how going premium will bag you “exclusive expansions” starting with one called Drone Strike. There’s a TBA after the name, but that looks like it could be the first DLC pack for the game.Other nuggets of information on the poster include details of Battlelog 2.0, which is a new version of the Battlefield portal allowing you to track your play stats. Armchair General is also listed and described as a “brand new commander mode” where you get to lead a team.You can see the poster in its entirety below (click to see it full size). And don’t forget there’s quite a few screenshots of the game as well as a 17-minute gameplay video to watch and get excited about.If nothing else the game looks gorgeous and is sure to sell a few million copies in the run up to Christmas. However, there is a concern the game will be always-connected, just like SimCity is, and we all know how well that went down with gamers.last_img read more

First venomous crustacean discovered living in underwater caves

first_img Citation: First venomous crustacean discovered living in underwater caves (2013, October 23) retrieved 18 August 2019 from More information: The first venomous crustacean revealed by transcriptomics and functional morphology: remipede venom glands express a unique toxin cocktail dominated by enzymes and a neurotoxin, Mol Biol Evol (2013) DOI: 10.1093/molbev/mst199AbstractAnimal venoms have evolved many times. Venomous species are especially common in three of the four main groups of arthropods (Chelicerata, Myriapoda, Hexapoda), which together represent tens of thousands of species of venomous spiders, scorpions, centipedes and hymenopterans. Surprisingly, despite their great diversity of body plans there is no unambiguous evidence that any crustacean is venomous. We provide the first conclusive evidence that the aquatic, blind and cave-dwelling remipede crustaceans are venomous, and that venoms evolved in all four major arthropod groups. We produced a three-dimensional reconstruction of the venom delivery apparatus of the remipede Speleonectes tulumensis, showing that remipedes can inject venom in a controlled manner. A transcriptomic profile of its venom glands shows that they express a unique cocktail of transcripts coding for known venom toxins, including a diversity of enzymes and a probable paralytic neurotoxin very similar to one described from spider venom. We screened a transcriptomic library obtained from whole animals and identified a non-toxin paralogue of the remipede neurotoxin that is not expressed in the venom glands. This allowed us to reconstruct its probable evolutionary origin, and underlines the importance of incorporating data derived from non-venom gland tissue to elucidate the evolution of candidate venom proteins. This first glimpse into the venom of a crustacean and primitively aquatic arthropod reveals conspicuous differences from the venoms of other predatory arthropods such as centipedes, scorpions and spiders, and contributes valuable information for ultimately disentangling the many factors shaping the biology and evolution of venoms and venomous species. Speleonectes tanumekes Koenemann, Iliffe, van der Ham, 2003. Credit: PLoS ONE 6 (5): e19627, figure 1. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0019627 ( —A research team with members from the U.K., Germany, and Mexico has confirmed the first known existence of a venomous crustacean. In their paper published in the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution, the researchers describe their study of Speleonectes tulumensis, of the group remipedes as well as their finding that it is indeed the first known crustacean to use venom to capture and kill prey. , Molecular Biology and Evolution © 2013 Journal information: PLoS ONE Remipedes are a type of crustacean, which is a subgroup of arthropods. Venom is of course found in a wide variety of arthropods such as spiders and scorpions, but never before has a crustacean (of which there are 70,000 known kinds) been known to create and use venom.Scientists have suspected S. tulumensis may be unique since they were first discovered living in underwater caves along coastlines in Mexico and Central America as far back as the 1980’s. They have hollow fangs on the sides of their head behind their jaws. No one’s been able to study them up close until now, however because of the difficulty in getting to where they live. In this latest effort, the team was able to collect some samples and then took them back to their lab. There they discovered that the one-of-a-kind creature actually has a complex venom delivery system, and that it produces more than one type of toxin.Specifically, they found that the tiny creature has muscles that contract to pump venom into the fangs, and another set they use for injection once prey is bitten (they are also able to squeeze off the fang chamber to prevent backwash). They also found that the venom has a both a neurotoxin and enzyme in it to deal with prey in two different ways. The neurotoxins (similar to those found in spider venom) act to disable prey, likely by causing spasms, while the enzymes (similar to those found in snake venom) break down body tissue allowing S. tulumensis to suck the body out of the shell and then to digest it.The researchers suggest that if one type of crustacean is venomous, it’s likely there are others that just haven’t been discovered yet. They also can offer no explanation as to why this particular creature out of all the others has developed the trait other than to note that it evolved in an environment that doesn’t have many food sources.

The health awareness camp will be organised at Dr R Ahmed Dental College and Hospital. The IDA has taken a pledge to hold various health camps to make people aware of the ill-effects of tobacco consumption in various forms. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsRallies will be held, where people from all walks of society, will take part only to highlight the danger of consuming tobacco. Various others anti-tobacco drives will also be organised on the occasion of World No Tobacco Day. IDA organises regular health talks, check-up camps and give suggestions to the state government and thus helps in implementing the anti-tobacco laws in West Bengal.India is home to one of the largest number of tobacco consumers in the world and West Bengal contributes largely to that. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedAccording to Global Adult Tobacco Survey 2010(GATS), 36.3% of the population of West Bengal uses tobacco in some form. This would amount to as many as 2.5 crore of people.Oral cancer has been on the rise. Oral cancer constitutes about 40% of all forms of cancer in our country and 30% of them stem from the use of tobacco. People from all sections of the society are victims. Strict measures should be taken to check the use of Gutkha among the people in the state and also a ban on smoking in public places. Smokeless chewing of tobacco like gutkha, khaini, paan and so on leaves people of Bengal vulnerable to various ailments. Also, cigarettes, bidis and alcohol increase the risk further. Almost in all cases, the patient comes for check up due to toothache and finds he is in a pre-cancerous state, a radiation oncologist in the city said.Dr Raju Biswas, State Secretary of the Indian Dental Association said: “Tobacco epidemic is one of the major health threats to the public health system. Our initiative is to free West Bengal from the clutches of Tobacco epidemic. It is very encouraging to get full support from the state government.”last_img read more

Will the single supplement put a dent in rising solo travel numbers

TORONTO — If you’ve noticed more solo travellers on the line requesting a quote, you’re not alone. Solo travel is on an upward trend, says the 2015 Visa Global Travel Intentions Study, with travellers who ventured alone on their most recent overseas leisure trip jumping to 24% from 15% in 2013.This market has more than doubled amongst affluent and first-time travellers (32% up from 14% for the affluent, and 37% up from 16% for first-time travellers), while solo ‘Superboomers’ are also seeing a slow but steady increase (18%, up from 16% in 2013).The study also revealed that solo travellers make for the ideal client: they engage in activities that speak to their passions (sporting events, water sports, etc.), they’re set on their destination but spontaneous about their itineraries (of 2,485 surveyed, 69% of solo travellers said they knew the destination they wanted to go to and did not consider others), and they seek bespoke travel experiences (personal guided tours have become increasingly popular among this market). In fact, the number of solo travellers that seek bespoke travel arrangements has increased almost three-fold compared to 2013 (24% compared to 9%).As a result, many tour operators and cruise lines are taking notice and going out of their way to cater to solos and their needs. In fact, there are enough companies currently focusing on solos to warrant the first annual Solo Travel Awards, which takes place in October and is being sponsored by Solo Traveler and World Nomads. Designed to “acknowledge companies that are serving the solo market well, and to motivate others to follow suit”, the awards identify those with no or very low single supplements.Travellers who ventured alone on their most recent overseas leisure trip jumping to 24% from 15% in 2013.Of course, the single supplement, which ranges from 10% to 100% or more of the standard rate, is an industry-wide practice that has long been regarded as a necessary evil. But as solo travel continues to increase, so too will the need for single supplements. And with more people being slapped with a hefty surcharge, the more risk there is of disgruntling a growing segment of the market.So is there a way to abolish the surcharge once and for all?More news:  Sunwing offers ultimate package deal ahead of YXU flights to SNU, PUJNot anytime soon. Katharine Bonner, SVP, Tauck River & Small Ship Cruising says that the single supplement results from the fact that tour and cruise companies price their products with the assumption that the cost of accommodations will be split between two guests occupying a single room or cabin. “So if a tour operator’s cost for a hotel room in Europe for one night is €300 and two guests sharing that room are paying €150 each, the tour operator breaks even. However, the tour operator’s cost for that room remains the same whether one or two guests are occupying it. So if you have a solo traveller in that same room, paying that same per-person rate of €150, suddenly the tour operator is incurring a substantial loss.Is there a way to abolish the surcharge once and for all?“The single supplement is a way of addressing the fact that hosting a solo traveller reduces the tour operator’s or cruise line’s income by half, while their costs haven’t been reduced accordingly.”From a cruise line’s perspective, Dana Gain, National Director, Sales – Canada for Norwegian Cruise Line says single supplements are a way to remain competitive.“The cruise model is based on sailing double occupancy, so if only one guest sails in a room it affects the overall model. In order to offer competitive pricing and rich, value-added promotional offers, the single supplement aligns to the double occupancy model,” she says.So it looks like it’s not going away anytime soon, but this isn’t to say that solo travellers will always be stuck with the short end of the stick. Tauck, for example, has eliminated the single supplement entirely on all of its Category 1 European riverboat cabins, is waiving the supplement on over 230 river cruise departures this year, and reducing the surcharge by up to $1,000 on 187 departures of 64 itineraries to five continents.NCL, in addition to waiving or reducing the single supplement from time to time, is credited with being the first cruise line to offer Studio cabins, designed specifically for solo cruisers. First debuting on Norwegian Epic in 2010, the well-received Studios (which charge no single supplement) have since been added to five of NCL’s ships.“There was clearly a market need and demand has been strong for these unique staterooms,” added Gain. “We recognized that families are the second largest cruising segment, second only to the 55+ age group. On average, between 15-20% of guests on each cruise are part of a multi-generational travel group, and that often includes family members that may be travelling solo.”More news:  Flights cancelled as British Airways hit by computer problemA growing number of millennials is also choosing to go at it alone. As the largest generation in history, they’re on track to also be the largest market in travel in the next several years. According to a 2015 MMGY Global survey of 2,300 U.S. adults, 37% of millennial respondents indicated they plan to take at least one overnight leisure trip alone during the next six months, up 5% from the previous year and 8% from two years prior.“We have seen an incredible increase of solo travellers as it is now more common – especially among millennials – today than it ever was,” says Damien Bennett, VP Sales North America, Busabout. “Because of this shift in travel habits, operators are realizing that there is a huge market in this sector and are now catering accordingly.”Bennett also cites a recent study by the UNWTO, which found that given the fact that the number of international millennial trips is expected to nearly double to about 300 million by 2020, solo travel will play an even larger role in how young Canadians travel.“From my experience, tour operators have traditionally seen solo travellers as an afterthought and have typically charged them extra for travelling alone. We’re seeing more and more operators following what Busabout is doing, that is by recognizing the benefits of solo travellers travelling with them. They have and continue to be a big part of our business,” he says.Solos are making a similar impact at Tauck, with Bonner saying that solo travel has certainly been a growing part of its business. “I think it points to an increased awareness that guided group travel is a smart choice for solo travellers. Prior to a trip, the work involved in planning a vacation is normally divided among two people. For someone travelling alone, all of that work falls on a single person, and it can be a lot,” she says. “With a guided group tour or cruise, the only work involved is picking the itinerary and departure date. Tauck does the rest.”This story originally ran in the August 3rd, 2017 issue of Travelweek magazine. To get Travelweek delivered to your agency for free, subscribe here.

Greater Miami CVB promotes MiamiNow

first_img Share Greater Miami CVB promotes #MiamiNow Travelweek Group Wednesday, October 4, 2017 << Previous PostNext Post >>center_img Posted by Tags: Florida, Miami TORONTO — Miami’s clean-up crews are very quickly restoring the city to shipshape and that’s perfect for a destination that’s home to the biggest cruise port in the world.Miami took a hit from Hurricane Irma last month but the worst effects from the fierce storm were thankfully limited to water damage and debris. “The biggest thing was the flooding,” said Linda Stilmann, Senior Director of Sales Travel Industry for The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, during a visit to Travelweek’s offices this week. Stilmann was in Toronto as part of an industry sales mission for Greater Miami and the Beaches that included meetings with trade media and a lunch event at Cirillo’s Culinary Academy on Oct. 3.Stilmann says downtown Miami is looking great post-Irma: “They got that cleaned up really quickly. I can’t say we were unscathed but everywhere you go they’re moving quickly to get debris out.”Some of the larger attractions are taking this chance to get ready for the winter high season, she adds. One top spot, Jungle Island, is expected to stay closed until the end of October. Miami Seaquarium plans to open Oct. 15.In the meantime the popular Miami Spice Restaurant Month has been extended through Oct. 31, to drive visitation as the city moves into the final stages of its post-Irma clean-up. Nearly 200 restaurants are taking part in the prix fixe dining promotion, offering reduced prices – US$23 per person for lunch and brunch, and $39 for dinner – at dining venues in top neighbourhoods around the city ( news:  CIE Tours launches first-ever River Cruise CollectionStilmann reports that most of Miami’s hotels are open (about 90%, she says) and everyone in the CVB has been out on the road getting the word out that Miami is open for business. Many hotels are extending special offers through Oct. 31 as part of the #MiamiNow promotion.Stilmann also notes that PortMiami is as busy as ever. Known as the ‘Cruise Capital of the World’, Miami is a gateway for cruise passengers from just about every cruise line, welcoming nearly 5 million cruise vacationers in 2016.From the Canadian market, visitation was down 4% in the first six months of 2017 versus 2016, but Canada is still the number one international market for Miami, delivering 325,856 visitors in the first half of this year. Next up is Argentina with 307,307 visitors (up 10%) and Brazil with 295,842 visitors (down 14%). Colombia and Germany round out the top five.The up-and-down Canadian dollar, currently sitting at US$0.80, continues to be a struggle for every U.S. destination but Stilmann says she’s optimistic. “We really do have something for every taste and pocketbook,” she says. “Sure, there’s the Fontainebleau, the Nobu and the Confidante for high-end clients, but there are also some great three-star properties with four-star amenities, like the South Seas and the Dorchester, both on Collins Avenue. They’re all very reasonable and you’re still getting that South Beach flavour without the cost. You don’t have to be right on Ocean Drive.”More news:  Flights cancelled as British Airways hit by computer problemSee for more details.

Market opening to reduce reliance on EAC

first_imgThursday’s inflation data, shaped by a 40 per cent annual increase in electricity prices has highlighted the continuing vulnerability of the economy to energy price shocks resulting from the over-reliance on heavy fuel oil used by the state-owned power producer.A government source said that the state wants to reduce it by encouraging private investment in power generation.In recent years, both households and industrial consumers benefited from the downward trend in oil prices, which allowed a drop of electricity prices, excluding taxes and other charges, in the second quarter of 2016 to €0.1285 and €0.1211 respectively, roughly half of what they were at the beginning of 2012, Eurostat data show.Power consumers in the euro area, traditionally accustomed to smaller price fluctuations, saw their bills drop until the first half of 2016 only 16 per cent since early 2012 in the case of households and 0.5 per cent in the case of industrial customers.Still, Cypriots paid on average significantly more over the past five years compared with consumers in the euro area. Households had been paying between 2012 and the first half of 2016 some 39 per cent more compared with what households in the euro area paid, while in the case of industrial customers, the difference was on average 92 per cent.“The energy cost does have an impact on competitiveness,” said Marios Tsiakkis, secretary general of the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry in a telephone interview. “And it does not just apply in the case of industrial units, it also applies to hotels”.The drop in energy prices which set off in mid-2014 coincided with the peak of the economic downturn that plagued Cyprus in recent years, and competitiveness gains helped economic recovery. The industrial production index stabilised in 2014 after it fell 13 per cent in 2013 and 10 per cent in 2012. In 2015 and 2016, it rose 3.3 per cent and 8.7 per cent respectively, according to Cystat data. Lower electricity prices also helped attract more tourists to the island, culminating into an all-time high last year.According to a finance ministry document, the price of Brent oil rose from $47.14 (€41.35) per barrel at the end of April last year to $55.64 (€52.49) at the end of February. The prices in euro take account the change in the exchange rates.The increase in electricity prices last month which contributed to accelerating the April inflation rate to 2 per cent, is not expected to result in comparable loss in competitiveness as in the past because wage indexation, which compensated workers for purchasing power losses, has been overhauled in the past few years as part of Cyprus’s bailout terms.“A way had to be found to reduce the share of energy in overall cost for hotels and industrial units as it will take a long time before we see natural gas in power generation” Tsiakkis continued, adding that incentives for the use of renewable energy for self-producers had been helpful.In the absence of market regulations which will allow investment by private producers and will give the right to consumers to choose their own supplier, the only alternative available to commercial customers who today have to buy power from state-owned monopolist Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC), is the production for own needs scheme which in the case of household consumers is called net-metering.Currently, investors representing projects with a combined generation capacity of around 600Mw are waiting for the Cyprus Energy Regulatory Authority to announce and implement market regulations that are expected to put an end to the monopoly of the EAC, which was on the government’s privatisation list until 2015.“The study carried out to examine and analyse all possible options regarding the future ownership status of EAC in 2015, has indicated early on that EAC monopolistic activities would definitely remain under public ownership for legal and financial reasons,” a government source said in an interview on condition of anonymity. “From the investors’ standpoint, the regulated Rate of Return would have to increase to be attractive. Such a development would definitely increase consumer cost”.Instead, the government opted to unbundle the EAC into two separate accounting entities, one in charge of production and supply and the other in charge of transmission and distribution.“The government is focusing on opening up the electricity market to allow competition both from renewable but also conventional generators,” the source continued in reference to the future of power generation.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
