Abdul Kalam, Vajpayee, Shekhawat and L.K. AdvaniThe minor reshuffle of portfolios in the Vajpayee Government was indeed minor. The move to depute two BJP ministers for party work fizzled out.While Prime Minister A.B. Vajpayee was forced to replace Shiv Sena’s Suresh Prabhu with Anant Geete as power minister following Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray’s diktat, he stopped short of positive action.While senior Union ministers Arun Jaitley and M. Venkaiah Naidu stepped down from the Cabinet to strengthen the party last month, Vasundhara Raje and Uma Bharati are having second thoughts.The BJP brass has been unable to persuade Minister of State for Personnel Raje to work out a time-table to take over as Rajasthan party chief.After Vice-President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat’s move to the Centre, there is a vacuum in Jaipur, but Raje hasn’t yet obliged. Neither did the former sports minister.Bharati’s shift to the Coal Ministry though is rather surprising, coming as it does after her high-profile presence at the Manchester Commonwealth Games. She was supposed to take over from Madhya Pradesh BJP party president Vikram Verma, who has been given the sports portfolio, but didn’t. Former chief minister Kailash Joshi has been named for the post.The BJP’s “generational shift” strategy has come apart within a month. The other addition in the Vajpayee ministry – now 78 strong – is Sena MP Anantrao Adsul. If Adsul and Geete fail to deliver on Thackeray’s demands, there might be another reshuffle.advertisementlast_img read more

IPL 2019: Shane Watson and Rashid Khan in verbal spat as CSK return to Chepauk

Coach That John Calipari Confronted About Cheating Allegations May Be Cincinnati’s Mick Cronin

(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images) kentucky basketball jones calipari kidd-gilchrist teagueTwitter/@tneelOn Tuesday night, we shared a clip from Gary Parrish’s radio show, in which he told a story about John Calipari accosting a fellow coach over recruiting allegations. Kentucky Sports Radio has look further into things, and as it turns out, this story might not be a new one. KSR’s Drew Franklin found an old story from Parrish in 2010, that is largely the same as the one he told this week. The coach in question? Cincinnati’s Mick Cronin.Parrish noted that Calipari will let people know when he has problems with others and he liked the fact that he is up front. He told a story about a confrontation Calipari had with Cincinnati Coach Mick Cronin after he heard Cronin had told some associates that he didnt understand how he could go to every game for a kid and then Calipari could come in at the last minute and take him (presumably Marquis Teague). Calipari heard the comment, went to Cronin and basically said “you have to go see all the kid’s games…I can sit back and decide which kid I want and come and get them.”While we’re not totally sure that Cronin was the example given again, it does seem like this is the same story. It’d probably be hard for Calipari to get away with using the same rant too many times. This is probably not something Cincinnati basketball fans want to be reminded of too often, though.last_img read more

BMV investigation shows no wrongdoings OSU halts own probe

After the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles concluded its investigation of car purchases made by Ohio State athletes and found that all purchases were legitimate, OSU has canceled its own investigation. According to the BMV’s 65-page report released Tuesday, which examined purchases from the Jack Maxton Chevrolet and Auto Direct dealerships in Columbus, there was “no evidence” to suggest wrongdoing by the dealerships or OSU players. “In light of the report from the BMV and an examination done by the Ohio Independent Automobile Dealers Association, we have seen no evidence that would lead us to believe that Ohio State student athletes violated any policies when purchasing used cars,” OSU spokesman Jim Lynch wrote in an email to The Lantern. “Therefore, we will not be conducting an independent examination outside of what has already been done by these parties.” The report cited that all 25 transactions were legitimate; however, no OSU officials were referenced in the BMV report. In a separate investigation released Tuesday, James R. Mitchell, the executive director of Ohio Independent Automobile Dealers Association, said that each of the 25 cars in question were sold at “fair market value.” “It is my professional opinion in regards to the sales transactions regarding (OSU) student athletes and their family members that there was no preferential treatment,” he wrote in a letter. The BMV’s investigation found that the automobile titles for the cars in question accurately reflected the actual purchase prices of the cars. The report also said there was no evidence of players providing memorabilia or tickets to the dealerships in place of cash. The Columbus Dispatch originally reported OSU’s plan to investigate car sales on May 7. Terrelle Pryor, who was connected to the use of at least six different cars during his time at OSU, departed the university on June 7 to pursue an NFL career.

It’s important to play as a team, focused on both attacking and defending together.”“The win against Empoli was satisfying and we feel the fans have confidence in us, but it’s just the beginning. Kouame and Piatek are extraordinarily interesting, while Gianluca Lapadula never holds back and gives such a big contribution to the team,” he added.“It is a strong club that maintained the team’s identity with players who have been there for many years.

Credit Market Making Publishers Nervous

first_imgThe Bear Stearns acquisition “certainly casts a gloomy outlook over where the markets and economy are headed,” DeSilva + Phillips managing partner Reed Phillips says. Kemp and Phillips are right. What’s going to come of situations like that with Reed Elsevier announcing plans to divest business sector magazine publisher Reed Business Information? A number of potential suitors have emerged, but is there really a strategic buyer out there willing to pony up $2-2.5 billion now?We’ll have to wait and see. Less than a week after its 21st annual media conference wrapped up in Florida, investment firm giant Bear Stearns Co. was sold Monday to rival JP Morgan Chase & Co. for $240 million—or just $2 per share, a 90 percent loss to what the company was worth a week ago.Although the dramatic news doesn’t have a direct impact on the magazine industry (unless Bear Stearns owes your business money, of course), it does have Wall Street traders up in arms again in a credit market that has former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan—who some blame for the housing market fallout—calling the current U.S. economic crisis the “most wrenching since the end of the second world war.” Capital markets across all industries, including media investors, are nervous about yesterday’s news—and for good reason. “Every time that we think that we’ve seen the bottom of the credit market, something like this happens and we see that it can get much, much worse,” Veronis Suhler Stevenson managing partner Tom Kemp told me during a phone conversation this morning. “Every time these things happen, the credit approval process becomes more difficult, leverage will be tougher and pricing will be higher.”last_img read more

Khmer Rouge leaders found guilty of genocide

first_imgThis handout photo taken and released by the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) on 16 November, 2018 shows former Khmer Rouge leader head of state Khieu Samphan stands during his verdict in court at the ECCC in Phnom Penh. Two senior Khmer Rouge leaders were sentenced to life imprisonment for genocide for their part in the regime`s 1975-1979 reign of terror, a UN-backed war crimes court said on 16 November in a historic ruling. Photo: AFPTwo top leaders of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime were found guilty of genocide on Friday, in a landmark ruling almost 40 years after the fall of a brutal regime that presided over the deaths of a quarter of the population.The Khmer Rouge’s former head of state Khieu Samphan, 87, and “Brother Number 2” Nuon Chea, 92, are the two most senior living members of the ultra-Maoist group that seized control of Cambodia from 1975-1979.The reign of terror led by “Brother Number 1″ Pol Pot left some two million Cambodians dead from overwork, starvation and mass executions but Friday’s ruling was the first to acknowledge a genocide.The defendants were previously handed life sentences in 2014 over the violent and forced evacuation of Phnom Penh in April 1975.But the judgement at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) also found Nuon Chea guilty of genocide against the ethnic Vietnamese and Cham Muslim minority group, among a litany of other crimes.”The chamber finds that Nuon Chea exercised ultimate decision-making power with Pol Pot and… therefore finds Nuon Chea is responsible as a superior for all the crimes,” presiding judge Nil Nonn said.”This includes the crime of genocide by killing members of Cham ethnic and religious group.”Khieu Samphan was also found guilty of genocide against ethnic Vietnamese, though not against the Cham, he added.Both parties were sentenced to “life in prison”, merging the two sentences into a single term, Nil Nonn said.Hundreds of people, including dozens of Cham Muslims and Buddhist monks, were bussed to the tribunal located on the outskirts of Phnom Penh to attend the hearing.- Cambodia’s ‘Nuremberg’ -The events covered by the verdict span the four years of the Pol Pot regime and include extensive crimes against humanity.”The verdict is essentially the Nuremberg judgement for the ECCC and thus carries very significant weight for Cambodia, international criminal justice, and the annals of history,” said David Scheffer, who served as the UN secretary general’s special expert on the Khmer Rouge trials from 2012 until last month.The revolutionaries who tried to recreate Buddhist-majority Cambodia in line with their vision of an agrarian Marxist utopia attempted to abolish class and religious distinctions by force.The verdict read out by Nil Nonn presented a society where minorities were targeted and killed, Buddhist monks forcibly defrocked and groups of people executed, while men and women were coerced into marriages and forced to have sex to produce children for the regime.The atrocities fell under the additional list of charges, which the two men were found guilty of as well.Lawyers for Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan said they were planning to appeal.”Khieu Samphan did not have power to make any decision, so the verdict to me is very confusing,” said his lawyer Kong Sam Onn.Los Sat, a 72-year-old Cham Muslim who attended the verdict hearing with his wife, said he had lost “too many” family members under the regime.”I am really satisfied with the sentences,” he said, beaming as he left the court. “They brought suffering to my relatives.”Youk Chhang, head of the Documentation Center of Cambodia — a research organisation that provided the court with evidence — said the verdict will “affirm the collective humanity of the victims and give recognition to the horrible suffering”.”It can provide a sense of closure to a horrible chapter in Cambodian history,” he said.But the verdict is also “bitter justice”, said Amnesty International.”Decades after the crimes and 13 years after it was established, the ECCC should have achieved much more,” said regional director Nicholas Bequelin.The hybrid court, which uses a mix of Cambodian and international law, was created with UN backing in 2006 to try senior Khmer Rouge leaders.It has convicted only three people so far and cost more than $300 million.Former Khmer Rouge foreign minister Ieng Sary and his wife died without facing justice, while Pol Pot passed away in 1998.Many believe Friday’s decision will be the last for the tribunal, which has been marred by allegations of political interference.Prime Minister Hun Sen — himself a former Khmer Rouge cadre — has repeatedly warned he would not allow more investigations to proceed, citing vague threats to stability.The court has launched investigations into four more Khmer Rouge cadres, though one was dismissed in February 2017, highlighting the difficulties of bringing lower level members of the brutal regime to justice.Human Rights Watch’s Phil Robertson on Friday blasted Hun Sen for “truncating the judicial process”.But Craig Etcheson, who previously served as an investigator in the tribunal, said all international tribunals are mired in “a complex web of political interests,” and despite the “expensive, slow” process of the court, the ECCC has provided some form of symbolic justice to the victims.”It is not enough, perhaps, but some justice is better than no justice,” he said.last_img

Study shows brewers yeast hybridizes in wasp gut

first_img(Phys.org)—A team of researchers from Italy, Uruguay and Spain has found via lab study that common brewer’s yeast not only mate in the guts of wasps, but interbreed with other yeast species, producing hybrids. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes their study and results and why they believe their findings could have implications for both environmentalists and manufactures of yeast based products.

Here they suggest is evidence of a fundamental part of the ecological cycle that was not known to exist. They wonder if other insects might be playing a similar role for other yeast or fungus types, such as bees or ants. They plan to continue the work to find out.

To learn more, they started with the findings four years ago by another team—that brewer’s yeast lives inside the guts of wasps while the wasps hibernate. They collected five different strains of the yeast and put them on grapes which were fed to wasps and then turned down the heat, causing the wasps to hibernate. After two months the researchers found that approximately one third of the yeast population had mated with yeast of a different species. After four months that number went up to 90 percent, proving , they claim, that yeast not only mate in wasp guts, but also interbreed.Taking the experiment a step further, the researchers found that the interbred strains tended to be more hardy inside the wasp gut then those that were not—over time, the pure breeds actually died off. This, the researchers claim, proves that wasp gut reproduction is a major driver of yeast diversity in nature. And , they add, that suggests that yeast are dependent on interaction with insects for evolutionary development. © 2016 Phys.org Citation: Study shows brewer’s yeast hybridizes in wasp gut (2016, January 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-01-brewer-yeast-hybridizes-wasp-gut.html The wasp and the grape: a worker hornet (Vespa crabro) feeding on a grape in a Tuscan vineyard in October.
