Shambhala Buddhist leader drops teaching in wake of report on sexual misconduct

first_imgHALIFAX — The Halifax-based spiritual leader of the Shambhala International Buddhist organization is stepping back from teaching and administrative duties several weeks after a report found allegations of sexual misconduct to be credible.Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche said in an email to his students today that he is sorry for “all that has happened,” and that he understands he is the main source of suffering and confusion in the community.He also said that he’s been requested to step back from teaching by senior members of the Shambhala community for the “foreseeable future.”However, Sakyong says he will still be available “for contact” with students who want to maintain a relationship with him and he will stay connected to the community by writing occasional messages.He wrote that he hopes that this allows community members to use the Buddhist teachings as “a way of healing and inspiration.”In a report released on Feb. 3, an investigator with the Halifax law firm Wickwire Holm hired by the organization found Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche made inappropriate sexual advances towards two female students.Lawyer Selina Bath noted a “significant power imbalance” in the relationships given the Sakyong’s position of authority as both the spiritual leader and lineage holder of Shambhala — one of the western world’s largest Buddhist organizations.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Mazda recalls nearly 190K cars due to failing wipers

DETROIT — Mazda is recalling nearly 190,000 Mazda 3 compact cars in the U.S. because the windshield wipers can fail.The company says in documents posted Saturday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the recall covers cars from the 2016 through 2018 model years.The Japanese automaker traced the problem to metal deposits that can cause a wiper relay to stick, knocking out the wipers and limiting driver visibility. The company says it has no reports of crashes or injuries due to the problem.Dealers will replace the front wiper control module at no cost to owners starting June 3.The Associated Press read more

Stronger legal protection of World Heritage sites needed

first_imgThe International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) has called on governments to increase the protection given to World Heritage sites. Speaking at the Congress of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), ICMM’s CEO, Tom Butler said: “The congress theme Planet at the crossroads stresses that business as usual is not an option and ICMM agrees.“Our members voluntarily decided in 2003, not to mine or explore in World Heritage sites. Yet 13 years later, other companies and industries are still operating in these precious sites. The conservation of World Heritage sites is a collective responsibility we all share and ICMM wants to see more movement from governments to protect them.”Since the first World Heritage sites were listed in 1978, only two of the 192 countries that have ratified the World Heritage convention1 have enshrined this protection in domestic legislation – South Africa and Australia. This is against a backdrop of a rapid decline in the world’s fauna. WWF’s Living Planet Report found that wildlife populations have halved since 19702.While 23 leading mining companies have voluntarily made a commitment not to mine or explore in World Heritage sites, their voluntary action alone is not enough to safeguard these sites. ICMM and IUCN commissioned an independent report by Dr Stephen Turner on world heritage. It recommended that countries incorporate their commitments under the World Heritage Convention in their national legislation3.The picture (by Clive Finlayson) shows the Gorham’s Cave Complex in the UK.The Convention Concerning the Protection of the World’s Cultural and Natural Heritage was adopted by the General Conference of UNESCO on 16 November 1972. Since then, 192 states parties have ratified the convention.WWF Living Planet Report, 2014 http://www.wwf.org.uk/about_wwf/other_publications/living_planet_report_2014/#.V8aoVU36vIUDr Stephen Turner’s report: World Heritage sites and the extractive industries is available at: http://www.icmm.com/publications/pdfs/3787.pdflast_img read more

Greek continues to protest over job loss

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Forty Civil Pacific workers who lost their contract with construction giant John Holland have been replaced by workers who have agreed to work for cheaper wages, according to Chris Kyriakou. Last week Neos Kosmos English Edition (NKEE) reported on the sacking of twenty-two year old Chris Kyriakou, one of the workers promised a two year contract by Civil Pacific (sub-contractor for John Holland) to work on the West Gate Bridge Strengthening Project. Kyriakou was promised  standard industry rates, as agreed to with the unions, the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU) and the Construction Forestry, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU).“We are still protesting outside the John Holland Office in hope that we will get our jobs back,” says Kyriakou. “It is very disappointing that John Holland is prepared to undermine this industry and rip workers off, and disappointing that the new workers they’ve hired are willing to take other people’s jobs for less money and less entitlements.”Yet spokesperson for John Holland, Stephen Sass denies that John Holland sacked the workers, and that new workers have been hired for the project.“These people were fired by their employer Civil Pacific not John Holland. The pay agreement was muscled by the unions without talking to us, and when we said we were not going to increase the cost of the project, they walked out and then fired people”.According to AMWU Victorian Secretary, Steve Dargavel, the CFMEU and the AMWU wrote a letter on Friday to John Holland seeking to negotiate an agreement and have brought the dispute before the Australian Building and Construction Commissioner. However Sass denies any requests have been received from the unions or Civil Pacific asking for their contracts back. John Holland is part of an alliance of four groups including VIC Roads asked by the State Government to complete the West Gate Bridge Strengthening Project. Neither the Brumby Government, nor other groups in the alliance will intervene in the dispute.“This is a private dispute. We hope that it is resolved as soon as possible but can’t comment further due to matter being before the courts,” says spokesperson for the Brumby Government, Bill Kyriakopoulos. Shadow Minister for Roads, Terry Mulder says that it is, “simply not good enough”.“There has to be a go to person in Government to be able to sit down with contractors and union leaders to resolve the dispute. We saw a similar situation with the meltdown of the rail network and the Government refused to intervene then also”. However Kyriakou fears that, “If they (John Holland) get away with this the whole industry is going to go downhill and every other company will do the same- get rid of award rates and get people to work for a lesser rate. I am hoping for a resolution within the next few weeks – hopefully John Holland will realise what they are doing is wrong and take us back at the industry rate”.Spokesperson for the alliance, Anne Learmonth says that the West Gate Project is proceeding despite the dispute. “We are leaving the industrial relations for John Holland to manage,” she says. “At this stage the dispute has not delayed the installation and temporary public safety barriers will start appearing on the bridge at the beginning of April.” The protests continue.last_img read more

Father and son sentenced to death in Oregon bank bombing

first_imgA jury Wednesday sentenced a father and son to death for planting a bomb that exploded inside an Oregon bank two years ago, killing two police officers and maiming a third.In a trial that spanned three months, prosecutors portrayed Bruce and Joshua Turnidge as bigoted men who hated authorities, were desperate for money and feared that newly elected President Barack Obama would take away their guns.Both defendants stood with their lawyers and stared straight forward, showing no emotion as Marion County Circuit Judge Tom Hart read the jury’s verdict. Sheriff’s deputies handcuffed them with their hands in front of their bodies.The same jury convicted the men Dec. 8 on 18 counts each of aggravated murder and other charges in the December 2008 bombing at a bank in Woodburn.“This is a murderer with no remorse,” prosecutor Matt Kemmy said in his closing argument of the penalty phase Tuesday.Both men have maintained their innocence. Father and son turned on each other in trial, each pointing the finger at the other for building and planting the bomb.last_img read more

China urges Donald Trump to keep his word on Huawei

first_imgBeijing: China on Monday urged US President Donald Trump to keep his word and allow companies in America to do business with Chinese tech giant Huawei, which was banned under trade restrictions put in place by Washington in May. The development comes after Trump on Sunday cast doubt on the possibility of conducting any kind of business with Huawei right before his administration was set to announce whether it was extending a temporary reprieve, set to expire on Monday, of the ban on American companies from buying the tech giant’s components, Efe news reported. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us “Huawei is a company we may not do business with at all,” Trump told mediapersons before departing from Morristown, New Jersey. The President insisted that the Chinese company was a threat to national security and said he would take a decision on the matter later. “So at this moment it looks like we are not going to do business, I don’t want to do business at all because it is a national security threat,” he added. Also Read – Pakistan test-fires 290-km range missile Advertise With Us Reacting to Trump’s remarks, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said here on Monday: “During the Chinese and US presidents’ meeting in Osaka, the US said it will allow US companies to supply Huawei. When and how will it honour its commitments? Concerns the US’ own reputation and credibility. “The world is watching, we hope the US can keep its words and stop the unreasonable oppression and sanctions on Chinese companies including Huawei.” Advertise With Us The commitments Geng referred to were made when Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed to a new truce in the ongoing trade war between their countries during the recent G20 summit in June. Following the truce, Washington delayed the imposition of new tariffs on China and agreed to temporarily allow Huawei to sell small components, such as computer chips, to US companies. In May, Washington banned Huawei from selling its telecommunications equipment to American companies, alleging that the Chinese giant could use those systems for espionage. On July 22, executives of seven tech giants asked Trump to take a decision on Huawei’s trading activity in the US, the White House said in a statement at the time. That day, the US President met executives from Google, Intel, Cisco, Qualcomm, Micron, Broadcom and Western Digital at the White House to discuss the ban on Huawei. During the meeting, the tech companies’ executives requested that the Department of Commerce take “timely licensing decisions” regarding the restrictions on Huawei. US media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, had revealed earlier that the Department of Commerce was considering extending the reprieve given to Huawei for another 90 days.last_img read more

The Undertaker defeats Goldberg at WWE SuperShowDown but fans term it the

first_imgUndertaker and Goldberg had a forgettable matchIf The Undertaker and Goldberg had a match 15 years ago, it would have been the most keenly anticipated contest in the wrestling world. But now, with both wrestlers on the wrong side of 50 and out of action for a long time, their first-ever contest in WWE turned out to be a fest of botches and barely-executed manoeuvres.This painful display of these two legends trying to extract the very last few drops of wrestling left in them left the fans watching around the world feel a great deal of anguish. Many vented their disappointment on social media while some outrightly ridiculed the contest.Highlights from The Undertaker vs Goldberg #WWESSD #WWE pic.twitter.com/P8rvs58IXK— Mordis Gooner ? (@maldivesgooner) June 7, 2019Twitter Twitter Twitter Twitter TwitterOne term that came to be used very commonly on Twitter was ‘worst match.’ For some, it was the worst match of the year while some thought it was the worst match the two had competed in during the course of their entire career.To be fair to the two performers, they did try their best. Goldberg, whose previous run with the company produced only very short matches, did much more in this contest and used moves other than the ‘Spear’ and ‘Jackhammer.’ Undertaker too, tried his absolute best in living up to the expectations. But the fact that they are beyond the age where they can produce great matches was clearly visible. Pulling off their signature moves seemed much too hard for them. Goldberg even came dangerously close to suffering a serious neck injury when Undertaker performed his finisher, Tombstone Piledriver. The fact that the contest ended with a chokeslam from the Deadman where he could barely raise his opponent was rather apt.Hopefully, WWE and its boss Vince McMahon would have enough respect and concern for these two legends to not put them through another such contest. If they still compete, it should be against a younger wrestler who can work a good match against these legends. But the best option would be to let these wrestlers remain in retirement and let their aura remain undiminished.last_img read more

Students Rally Support for Next Phase of HBCU Lawsuit

first_imgBy Deborah Bailey, Special to the AFROThe Maryland HBCU Matters Coalition teamed up with Morgan State University student leaders a week before the midterm elections, to send a message to candidates running in Maryland.“We can actually affect change if we  go out and vote for candidates who express support for our HBCU’s, so we can obtain what we deserve,” said  Morgan Student Government Association (SGA) president Kenold E. Pierre.   Pierre spoke to  scores of student leaders, faculty and staff gathered on the plaza outside of the Earl Richardson School of Business this week to hear an update on the HBCU lawsuit and appeal.Maryland HBCU’s (Courtesy Images/Logos)The groups held a rally protesting the State’s decision to appeal of the Maryland HBCU Equity case,  a US District Court ruling (2017) that would benefit the state’s four HBCU’s.  Oral arguments for the appeal are scheduled to be heard before the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth District in Richmond, Va., the week of December 10.Zanyjah Riche,  student representative from the Political Science Association and Black Girls vote, who spoke at the rally, said she is dedicated to delivering the message.“We must have these conversations in the dormitories; in the cafeteria,” Riche said. “We have to light a fire under students with a knowledge of this court case, Riche emphasized.”“Through my involvement with the Political Science Association and Black Girls Vote, we will definitely make the connection between what is happening with the HBCU court case and next week’s vote. We have to vote for candidates who understand and are dedicated to supporting HBCU’s,” Riche said.HBCU Matters Coalition member and Morgan alumni Sharon Blake is working on the next event to  inform the Morgan community about the status of the Maryland HBCU trial and appeal.“I’m going to do what I can to move the agenda around HBCU’s.   Our goal is for all four campuses to hold an event to inform and update our HBCU’s about the trial and appeal,” Blake said.Blake said the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) will hold an HBCU Matters rally on November 17 and Morgan State will host an additional activity before the appeal hearing and dates for campus activities at Coppin State and Bowie State are still pending, Blake said.HBCU Matters Chairman, Marvin “Doc” Cheatham said he is looking for students, alumni and friends of Maryland’s HBCU’s to pack the 4th Circuit US Court of Appeals the week of December 10. “We don’t know the exact date, but we are reaching out and calling on at least 200 HBCU supporters to join us in Richmond,” Cheatham told the AFRO. Pierre said he and other Morgan classmates who live in the region are ready to travel to the be present at the appeal, even though it is scheduled at the end of the semester, a time when many students are preparing to head home.“I live in PG County so it’s not a long distance for me. I am willing to travel to Virginia and I encourage my classmates who can to make the sacrifice and join me,” said Pierre.last_img read more

Nvidia Will Provide the AI Brains for Autonomous Volkswagens

first_img Aston Martin Will Build You Your Very Own Supervillain LairSony Crammed a 9-Inch Touchscreen Into a Single-DIN Car Stereo Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img Over the next 7 years, Volkswagen plans to introduce 20 fully-electrified vehicles. They’ll start showing up on dealer lots in 2020 loaded with new tech — including Nvidia’s sophisticated AI.In case you weren’t aware, Nvidia is in to way more than GPUs these days. They’re betting big on autonomous vehicles and their Drive IX technology is one of the most advanced platforms around. Several of the auto industry’s big guns — including Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and Tesla — are already partners.Now they’ve added Volkswagen to the list. One of the first vehicles that will benefit is the company’s slick revamped bus, the I.D. Buzz. According to Nvidia’s press release, there’s way more to it then letting Drive IX take the wheel or step on the brakes.AdChoices广告Nvidia has tricked out its AI with advanced functionality including facial and gesture recognition, eye tracking, lip reading, and natural language processing. Drive IX is like an “AI co-pilot,” helping you to get where you’re going and stay safe while you get there, answering questions and taking instructions from you along the way.Volkswagen currently produces around 6 million vehicles per year globally. Even if they’re only shipping Drive IX in a small percentage of those 2020, it’s clear that there are going to be a lot of super-intelligent vehicles on the road in a very short amount of time. Volkswagen is no doubt hoping the all those green, futuristic cars will put some distance between the brand and all that nasty Dieselgate business.As for Nvidia, locking up Volkswagen is a major victory. With two of the world’s three biggest manufacturers on board, Nvidia is poised to dominate the autonomous vehicle game. They’re also tied up with Peterbilt and Kenworth in the trucking segment and Bosch, the biggest supplier of auto parts on the planet.last_img read more

Advances in Molecular Imaging

first_img Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more Data Integration and Analytics No solution alone can address a growing, aging population and increase in chronic and lifestyle diseases, among other pain points in our global healthcare system. This requires an integrated approach that accesses and analyzes data drawn from a multitude of sources, making critical information available to patients and caregivers where, how and when they need it. Molecular imaging is evolving to fulfill these needs, and providing better access to more integrated diagnostic imaging technology will continue to be critical in improving patient care. As the healthcare industry shifts toward value-based care, clinician workflow has become more demanding, but it is not only about integrating data for primary care physicians. Healthcare institutions want and need imaging solutions that provide integrated patient information, automated processes and increased diagnostic confidence on repeat tests. Molecular imaging and nuclear medicine innovations that are primed for today and tomorrow should be able to address three key areas.Integrated patient data. As clinicians look to implement more pre-emptive and definitive treatment programs, they require access to integrated, comprehensive data on the patient’s diagnostic history and not just an image. Through the technologies available, physicians will begin to see these molecular imaging technologies as more than a scanner, but as a whole solution that helps to integrate quality, quantification and analytics. Improved workflow and automation. Clinicians need imaging solutions that provide integrated patient information and automated processes. The latest patient-centered imaging can improve workflow efficiencies via fast scans, and high image quality at a low dose that in turn can help better manage patient care.Enabling personalized medicine. Molecular imaging’s role in disease management is becoming increasingly important. It is critical for clinicians to be able to identify a disease in an early stage, and assess their patient’s response to therapeutic intervention. Access to more data enables clinicians to customize treatment based on their patient’s anatomy, and specific molecular and cellular patterns of disease. Data coupled with digitally advanced imaging tools can help clinicians make faster and more confident disease detection, leading to more patient-specific therapy guided by molecular imaging.  News | Interventional Radiology | July 31, 2019 International Multidisciplinary Group Publishes Recommendations for Personalized HCC Treatment With Y90 TheraSphere New consensus recommendations for personalized treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with BTG’s TheraSphere have… read more Videos | AAPM | July 23, 2019 VIDEO: Bridging Diversity in Medical Physics to Improve Patient Care Cynthia McColl… read more Feature | Radiology Business | July 23, 2019 | Greg Freiherr Liars in Radiology Beware! Can you tell when someone is lying? read more Body language expert Traci Brown spoke at the AHRA 2019 meeting on how to identify when a person is not being honest by their body language. She said medical imaging department administrators can use this knowledge to help in hiring decisions and managing staff.  Three Trends Driving Innovation In addition to the aforementioned drivers that are spurring industry growth, three key trends have emerged and are informing the next generation of solutions, innovations and breakthroughs.Trend No. 1: Increased patient engagement is driving demand for data. As the industry continues to move toward more patient-centric care and patients become increasingly more aware and involved in their health, there is a growing focus on early diagnosis and prevention. Nuclear medicine and molecular imaging are responding by refocusing on digital technologies as well as actionable data and analytics. Clinicians need access to clearer, sharper images and more cost-effective technology that provides quantitative and qualitative measurements. Being able to extract quantified, meaningful data allows physicians to better assess the severity of a condition or disease and measure the degree of change over the course of treatment. Rich data can be turned into actionable insights that help to shape, drive and inform patient care and treatment, earlier and throughout the cycle of care.Trend No. 2: Making personalized medicine a reality. As personalized medicine continues to influence how we deliver care, advances in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging technologies are making it more and more critical in the care continuum. For example, new radiotracers represent a major development that will take nuclear medicine beyond the standard FDG (fluorodeoxyglucose), which will enable greater specificity to target individual tumor types or disease processes. Advances in imaging equipment in digital technology, such as digital PET/CT, have demonstrated that they can provide approximately twice the volumetric resolution, sensitivity gain and quantitative accuracy when compared to analog systems, enhancing patient care. Lastly, in order for physicians to deliver personalized treatment, they need quantitative data that has driven the delivery of advances that give providers more access to actionable information and analytics.Trend No. 3: Integrated solutions for a 360-degree view of the patient. In healthcare, there is no one-size-fits all approach — each patient carries unique characteristics and insights that create a one-of-a-kind care journey. Clinicians (and patients) are looking for solutions that help deliver treatment earlier along that care path, with the aim of providing more preventative, personalized solutions. To do that, clinicians are seeking more pre-emptive and definitive treatment programs, and are demanding access to integrated, comprehensive data on the patient’s diagnostic history. Since radiology and nuclear medicine continue to remain at the heart of diagnosis, access to more integrated diagnostic imaging technology will continue to be critical for improving patient care. With this, we are seeing the advent of more integrated, patient-focused solutions that deliver enhanced image quality through real-time tools tailored to help elevate clinical performance throughout the cycle of care. As our population continues to age and see a rise in multiple complex, chronic diseases such as cancer, dementia and cardiac disease, physicians will find they need more than just scanners to help provide accurate treatment and diagnosis. Nuclear medicine and molecular imaging will continue to advance and develop as an integral part of radiology and diagnostic imaging. Features and capabilities will continue to be innovated to fit the needs of the physicians in need of better quality imaging solutions to provide, which will be critical to improving patient care. Kirill Shalyaev Ph.D., is vice president and general manager of advanced molecular imaging, Philips Healthcare.

Here, PET/CT imaging is used to look inside the stress center of the brain.Advanced imaging and hybrid modalities, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET)/CT and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT are showing significant growth and will continue to do so, despite some slowdown in overall imaging volume due to the changing reimbursement landscape. There are ongoing studies and data that demonstrate the value of molecular imaging and nuclear medicine solutions in both traditional and new use cases. Today, the value in these innovations and the added confidence they provide in informing better patient care is more widely recognized. As a result, PET/CT volume in particular is expected to rise steadily over the next 10 years, driven by new indications, novel tracers obtaining regulatory approval and expanded insurance coverage.Nuclear medicine and molecular imaging have come a long way and continue to evolve, advancing their impact on diagnosis and treatment. There are a number of factors driving the evolution of the nuclear medicine and molecular imaging market, which include a rise in chronic disease, the significant growth of aging population and increasingly limited global resources.  The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans.

Domestic travel needs shakeup

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Tourism companies have been urged to create new products and experience to allure domestic visitors, after domestic visitor night rose by as little as one percent in the December quarter 2010 compared to 2009. According to a National Visitor Survey compiled by Tourism Research Australia overnight expenditure also increased by only one percent. Tourism and Transport Forum chief executive John Lee said the industry needs to look at developing and improving products for domestic travel. “Investing in new tourism infrastructure, products and experiences can play a key role in addressing this issue,” Mr Lee said in an online statement. “It has the double benefit of giving Australians more reasons to holiday at home, but can also attract international visitors.” Mr Lee added that the industry particularly needs to look at its domestic option as the strong Aussie dollar allures travellers overseas. “We can’t compete on price, so we have to compete on quality and offer premium services,” he said. “The shift in focus to the supply side, as outlined in the National Long-Term Tourism Strategy, will not happen overnight but we need to have the right mechanisms in place to help that occur.”last_img read more

The game ended in overtime in a 6-6 tie. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Seattle’s home stadium has been named as one of the toughest stadiums to play in the NFL.However, the Cardinals have found their fair share of success in Seattle, winning the past three out of four meetings at CenturyLink Field.Still, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll laughed off Bruce Arians’ comments about it being the Cardinals’ home turf.“Bruce gets to say whatever he wants, man,” Carroll told MyNorthwest.com. ” “I don’t care, bring it on. We’ll go play some football Sunday and figure it out.”Carroll added that the comments made by Arians may motivate his team, saying they “might have a little fun with that.”The Seahawks playoff chances rely on their ability to beat the Cardinals and an Atlanta Falcons’ loss or tie against the Carolina Panthers. For the Cardinals, a win in Sunday’s game gives them the chance to play spoiler and finish 8-8 in a season riddled with injuries.Arians has confidence in his team and in quarterback Drew Stanton, who will make his second straight start since taking over for Blaine Gabbert after Week 15.Though, Arians admits he wishes he had quarterback who orchestrated the Cardinals three previous wins in Seattle, Carson Palmer. “There is just something about Carson up there and the way he throws the deep ball,” Arians told 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Craig Grialou & Mike Jurecki on Tuesday. “We’ll be fine, I think Drew is going to be healthier. We were real close a couple years ago up there with Drew, we dropped a touchdown right in our hands at halftime.”Still, he expects his team to be ready for what is sure to be another physical matchup in this bitter rivalry.“It’s Seattle,” Arians said. “We’ve had some success up there and every time we play them it’s a knock down, drag out (game).” With the playoffs out of reach, the Cardinals’ chance to end the playoff hopes for Seattle is extra motivation for the players and head coach Bruce Arians. 6 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires LISTEN: Bruce Arians, Cardinals head coach Top Stories Your browser does not support the audio element.last_img read more

destruction of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya in 1992 senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar said on Monday Speaking at a book launch in New Delhi many others including former Congressman Natwar Singh who also worked closely with Rao described the Babri Masjid demolition on 6 December 1992 as "the biggest failure" of the then Prime Minister Rao who otherwise according to them took bold and timely decisions on economic reforms "Rao was completely convinced that by talking to the sadhus and saints he could solve the problem (Ayodhya’s Ram temple issue)" Aiyar said at the release of ‘Half Lion — How PV Narasimha Rao Transformed India’ penned by Vinay Sitapati Former prime minister PV Narasimha Rao File photo PTI Aiyar recalled that on 14 November 1992 his "Ram-Rahim yatra" for peace and communal harmony was stalled at Faizabad and he was arrested by Uttar Pradesh Police "I was summoned by Rao he told me he had no problem with my yatra but he did not agree with my definition of secularism as India is a Hindu-majority country I told Rao that’s exactly how the BJP argues" Aiyar said while countering contentions from the book author Author Sitapati a product of National Law School at Bengaluru and Harvard University maintained that Narasimha Rao had actually only "erred" in judging the situation and that "it was only the Congress creation that Rao conspired for the mosque’s demolition" Senior journalist Shekhar Gupta said the ploy to "demonise" Rao on the Babri issue was a Congress attempt only to win over the Muslims by saying that "look Rao is responsible for the Babri demolition and not the party" "The Muslims of UP are not fools; they knew pretty well who opened the locked gates of the disputed structure" Gupta said in reference to a decision of the then Rajiv Gandhi government Aiyar however maintained that even after the mosque’s demolition Rao told a Congress Parliamentary Party meeting in Delhi that "even kings in ancient India used to consult sages and sadhus and so did I" "Was this a mindset of a 20th century Prime Minister or 12th century This mindset actually encouraged the destruction of Babri Masjid" Aiyar said The Congress leader maintained that Rao could have dismissed the then Kalyan Singh government and imposed President’s Rule in Uttar Pradesh "In fact there was a precedent of such President’s Rule In apprehension that things can go out of control in Tamil Nadu the then DMK government was dismissed and central rule imposed earlier without recommendation from the state Governor" However former bureaucrat and ex-Cabinet Secretary Naresh Chandra strongly defended Rao’s decision not to impose President’s Rule in Uttar Pradesh as that would have been an act with constitutional flaw "The then UP Governor did not recommend President’s Rule but in the case of Tamil Nadu as argued by Mani Shankar Aiyar the Governor (Surjeet Singh Barnala) had only said he is unable to make up his mind whether to impose President’s Rule or not" Chandra said Speaking on the occasion Natwar Singh described the demolition of the Babri mosque as "the biggest failure" of Rao’s tenure He said that after the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi Shankar Dayal Sharma was the first choice of Sonia Gandhi for prime ministership "On the advice of PN Haksar Sonia Gandhi sent me and Aruna Asif Ali to meet Shankar Dayal Sharma but he declined the proposal" Natwar Singh Natwar Singh also threw light on and shared anecdotes about tension in relations between Congress leader Arjun Singh and Narasimha Rao and also between Sonia Gandhi and Rao especially in the context of probe into Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination "Rao completely denied the charge and said he had sent others including P Chidambaram to Sonia Gandhi with the information on the probe" Singh said The book ‘Half Lion — How PV Narasimha Rao Transformed India’ is published by Penguin Books India I would’ve made Aashiqui 2 even if it would’ve been called ‘RJ ki ek love
