Beef traders refuse to withdraw strike in Goa

first_imgBeef traders in Goa on Saturday declined to withdraw their indefinite strike and demanded that the State government should crack down on vigilante groups who “harass importers of beef from neighbouring States.”Manna Bepari, president of the Qureshi Meat Traders Association of Goa, said that an assurance has been given by the Chief Minister’s Office that the “issue would be resolved within two days.” “We will not sell beef until the government finds a solution to the problem. We went to meet Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, but he is not in Goa. The CMO has assured us that a meeting of all stakeholders will be called within two days and the issue will be resolved,” Mr. Bepari said and added, “beef will not be sold in Goa until this problem involving vigilante groups and clarity on beef-import modalities are not resolved.”Mr. Bepari said that the strike of beef-sellers on Saturday was complete success. With the beef sales completely off on Saturday, the prices of mutton and chicken surged in the range of ₹30-40 across the tourist State. According to official statistics from the State-owned Goa Meat Complex, the State’s only abattoir facility allowed to slaughter cattle and buffaloes, nearly 30 tonnes of fresh beef is consumed in Goa every day. And majority of the beef is imported from Karnataka by the meat traders in Goa to meet the demand for the red meat. The beef traders have been accusing anti-beef vigilante groups and so-called ‘gaurakshaks’ of harassing them. Mr. Bepari said that they were tired of the raids on beef transporters coming from neighbouring states.“They are not allowing our business to function. Every other day these groups target the beef consignments which we order from the open market from Karnataka and government officials also keep harassing us,” Mr. Bepari said on Friday referring to recent raids on beef transporting vehicles, which he alleged were inspired by vigilante groups.last_img read more

Increased Computer Access at Holy Trinity High School

first_imgHoly Trinity High School is on the way to improved academic results, with the assistance of technology, and teachers being able to “walk” with laptop computers for use in classes. Some 300 seventh graders will also benefit from 20 new Internet-enabled desktop computers, which have been installed in the school’s reading room. A total of 45 computers were formally handed over to the institution in Kingston, on Tuesday, March 12, by representatives of William Charter High School in Philadelphia, in the United States. Education Minister, Rev. the Hon. Ronald Thwaites, who witnessed the handing over, noted that the school was described in the past as falling behind, but is now leading the secondary school system in the improvement of Grade Seven Literacy. “If we do not deal with appropriate numeracy and literacy interventions at the Grade Seven level, we are courting failure at the higher grades…therefore young people, you’re being given a tremendous advantage – don’t watch where you come from – consider where you can be at the end of Grade Seven, so that you can be good students in any subject,” he told the students. The Minister emphasised that this is a “big opportunity” which can be duplicated in schools across the country. “We want to ensure that schools recognize the importance of not just taking in grade seven students and moving them through the system – but making the appropriate individual interventions. The technology that you have been given today, affords you the opportunity to do that,” he said. Principal, Margaret Bolt, welcomed the donation. “We really want to use technology to drive improvement in literacy and we also want to be able to assist our teachers to engage in using technology. Many times they don’t have the facility in their rooms. We have a lot of technical areas, and so the teachers want to be able to walk with the technology into the workshops,” she told JIS News. She explained that William Penn Charter High School has also made available two technical persons for installation, and to train the teachers in using the technology. The Grade Seven students use the reading room up to three times per week. Meanwhile, Manager of Technology and Network Services at William Penn Charter High, Paul Blackwood, said the collaboration came about from connection with the Principal years ago, while she was at another institution.“This is the first phase of what we are trying to do. The reading lab was in need of being refurbished, so that was our project to refurbish with desktop computers and then give the heads of department laptops, so they could become a mobile workforce,” he said.Mr. Blackwood further informed that e-mail accounts have been established for all members of the Holy Trinity faculty, with a view to creating accounts for all the students over time.“We believe that by having a presence and point of contact on the web, the stakeholders who want to be vested in the total development of the school will have that point of contact, and see that the school has a professional presence,” he said.The cost for the batch of computers is approximately US$10,000.By Alphea Saunders, JIS Reporterslast_img read more

Feds begin payouts to informants for offshore tax intelligence

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal government has begun making payments to secret informants for intelligence that has so far brought in more than $19 million from offshore tax evaders.Newly released documents say the Canada Revenue Agency issued the first payments under its offshore tax informant program between April 2018 and the end of March this year.The program launched five years ago as part of the government’s efforts against international tax evasion.The revenue agency says it cannot disclose the specific amounts paid to informants, as that data could potentially reveal their identities.However, under the program, the reward is between five and 15 per cent of the federal tax collected in cases where the amount assessed and recouped exceeds $100,000.The new figures were recently presented to the House of Commons in response to written questions from New Democrat MP Pierre-Luc Dusseault.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

BC Chamber of Commerce reports on the Budget 2019

first_imgThe BCCC shares the areas the Budget did not address issues identified by businesses;A commitment to a comprehensive review of the taxation system to make it fair and less cumbersome for businesses.A broad-based commitment to reduce the regulatory burden on businesses. VANCOUVER, B.C. – The BC Chamber of Commerce (BCCC) reports the Budget 2019 leaves business concerns to the side by falling short on addressing fundamental issues that affect B.C. businesses.The BCCC share there were some small wins in the budget, yet the budget failed to address key issues such as global tax competitiveness, reduced business confidence, and a slumping investment in BC businesses.“Our 2018 Collective Perspective Survey showed that confidence in the BC economy is declining in 50% of BC businesses.  “Current tax rates are hurting our ability to compete globally,” says Val Litwin, CEO of the BC Chamber of Commerce. This budget didn’t adequately address productivity or competitiveness in a way that will grow our economy, create meaningful employment, and generate the revenues we need to sustain a healthy prosperous province and country,” Litwin says. The BCCC shares the areas the Budget did deliver in areas significant to BC Businesses;Multiple funding mechanisms to ensure that high-speed internet access is Canada-wide by 2030, with $1.7 billion specifically earmarked for rural, remote and Northern communities.$631.2 million to expand Work-Integrated-Learning (WIL) programs, with a view to create up to 20,000 new WIL opportunities outside of STEM-related fields.$150 million to create new partnerships between government and industry to create up to 20,000 new WIL opportunities.Multiple funding mechanisms to enhance apprentice programs in skilled trades.$3 billion in tax incentives through the SR&ED tax incentive to support business research and development (R&D) in Canada. The program provides a 35-per-cent refundable tax credit to eligible small and medium-sized businesses.center_img A renewed commitment to eliminating inter-provincial trade barriers and mobility.Support for SMEs to find new export opportunities and expand Canada’s ability to diversify its trade.A clear strategy to move the Trans Mountain pipeline forward, given the significant investment made by Canadian taxpayers.Budget 2019 proposals the BCCC share, require more consideration and details before determining the impact on businesses;The Budget identified funding programs to develop “regulatory roadmaps” to address stakeholder issues and irritants. While these efforts align with the BC Chamber’s interest in reducing the regulatory burden on Canadian businesses, the Budget proposals, unfortunately, maintain a lacklustre, made-by-government solution to a made-by-government problem.The new Canadian Training Credit and EI Training Support Benefits to support the up-skilling and re-skilling of Canadians align with the BC Chamber’s recommendations. However, the potential impact on small businesses remains unclear. The BC Chamber needs more information and wants to see a commitment that business is consulted.The Budget offered little new information regarding the national pharmacare plan. The BC Chamber supports focusing on the 10% of Canadians that are uninsured or underinsured and also supports the value of bulk drug purchasing to help British Columbians manage costs.The BC Chamber supports the Global Talent Stream program but would like to see a commitment from the program to bring skilled immigrants to rural communities, where they are often most needed.The BC Chamber network will continue to engage with Federal representatives to prioritize restoring a competitive tax structure, reducing regulatory burdens, and increasing access to skilled labour as critical priorities to maintain prosperity for all British Columbians.last_img read more

The price of silence

first_imgThe small municipal town of Pollachi in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore district has numerous first generation learners. It is easier to soft-target women in such a situation, as precisely has happened in the small town. The apprehension of few accused at the end of February brings more than a semblance of justice to the victims; it brings to highlight the prevalence of normalised sexual abuse of the vulnerable to appalling extents. This has snowballed into a major scandal with the emergence of local reports that at least a few hundred women in the town were victims of organised racket of sexual abuse, blackmail, and extortion. The reports state that just one survivor has filed a complaint despite that fact that many have confirmed on police helpline that they have suffered abuse, blackmail, and extortion at the hands of predators. The apparent reason for them not putting in a written complaint is the pervading culture of victim-shaming. Further, among the accused was a member of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (who was subsequently removed from the party), and Opposition parties allege that the case involves those much higher in the State’s ruling party leadership. What we see here is that the crumpled social fabric is losing focus from the issue at hand and instead, this incident is pushed towards unnecessary politicisation. The case was subsequently handed over to CBI upon the Governor’s consent, but this does not address the reasons that led to such disgrace. Also Read – A compounding difficulty Sexual abuse, assault, misconduct are much more prevalent than perceived but hardly spoken about due to social apathy in general for such things. The price of not speaking up is enormous – and is paid collectively. Young women from the town are expressly avoided for matrimonial consideration by neighbouring regions and communities. Apart from taking a toll on their self-esteem and self-worth, higher education of women is severely threatened. They are encouraged to enroll in correspondence courses instead of regular ones. This is a very retrograde trend whereby education is a mere formality or socially acceptable method of biding time (until marriage) and not valued for its intrinsic quality. If women are not free to go out and get education, they are virtually incapacitated to go out and do anything on their own. Legal intervention is only the first step in setting things right. Ultimately it is a social issue that must be addressed by a concerned civil society. Silence must be actively discouraged. Survivors must be supported.last_img read more

Eerie Easter

first_imgNearly a decade after the 26-year long civil war in Sri Lanka came to a long-awaited close, the people of the island nation were crudely jolted with a series of coordinated attacks on churches and luxury hotels on Easter Sunday. Other nationals killed in the dastardly attack include Indians, Japanese and of USA. In solidarity with Sri Lanka, other nations and world leaders extended their condolences the grieving nation. On a day of worship and cheer, memories of the civil war were wrenched back in a flash. Faraz Shauketaly, a prominent journalist, spoke about the Sri Lanka Civil War and its connection to Sunday’s attack, reiterating that in Sri Lanka, the ethnic conflict began approximately 40 years ago and finished 10 years ago. The 3-decade long war was perpetrated by mainly a group of terrorists who claimed to want independence in the northern part of Sri Lanka, is a tiny island, about 240 miles long and 140 miles wide. May 18, 2019, will mark the 10-year anniversary of the end of the nation’s civil war fought between the Sri Lanka government and its Sinhala Buddhist majority and the Tamil Tigers minority ethnic group. Warning of more attacks in Sri Lanka, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo commented that the United States will keep fighting “radical Islamic terror” in the wake of the Sri Lanka attacks. This comment very easily labels the mishap with a colour and a community that is otherwise vulnerable on the global stage. These attacks come in line with notorious attacks on churches, the latest being the fire that ravaged Notre Dame. The leaders of Sri Lanka, however, showed remarkable grit and insisted that the national suffering must not become a political game.last_img read more

Libyan deputy industry minister shot dead

first_imgTripoli – Assailants gunned down a Libyan deputy minister overnight, officials said on Sunday, in the first killing of a government member since the 2011 overthrow of dictator Moamer Kadhafi.Deputy industry minister Hassan al-Droui was shot dead during a to his hometown of Sirte, east of Tripoli, which was also Kadhafi’s hometown, security and hospital officials said.And in another sign of the instability plaguing the country, the toll from tribal clashes in the southern town of Sebha rose to 27 dead, with another 72 people wounded in the unrest. “Hassan al-Droui, the deputy minister for industry, was killed by unknown attackers overnight, during a visit to his native city of Sirte,” a security official told AFP.“Unidentified gunmen sprayed bullets on Mr. Droui in central Sirte,” the official said on condition of anonymity.A medical official at the city’s Ibn Sina hospital said Droui had suffered multiple gunshot wounds.The Libyan government denounced a “cowardly criminal act” and said in a statement it would “spare no effort to track down the perpetrators and prosecute them.”Droui was a former member of the National Transitional Council, the political arm of the rebellion that brought an end to Kadhafi’s 42-year rule.He was appointed deputy minister for industry by the transitional government’s first premier, Abdelrahim al-Kib, and kept his job when Prime Minister Ali Zeidan took office.Sirte, which lies on the Mediterranean coast about 250 miles (400 kilometres) east of Tripoli, was the last regime bastion to fall into rebel hands in the 2011 uprising during which Kadhafi was killed.Since the collapse of Kadhafi’s autocratic regime, Libya has been plagued by sporadic violence, including a string of assassinations targeting top army and security officials and the brief abduction of Zeidan.Deadly tribal clashesThe number of casualties from clashes between rival tribes in the southern town of Sebha and nearby Murzuq and Al-Shati rose to 27 dead and 72 wounded, a government statement said on Sunday.Fighting broke out in the area on Saturday pitting gunmen from the Arab Awled Sleiman tribe against tribesmen from the Toubou minority.Local sources said the clashes were sparked by the death on Thursday of a militia chief linked to Awled Sleiman, adding that the tribe accused the Toubou of murdering him.The Toubou are black oasis farmers by tradition who also live in southern Libya, northern Chad and Niger, who have repeatedly said they were being marginalised.A previous toll from the town’s local council had said that 19 died in the fighting and another 27 wounded.Fresh fighting broke out in Sebha on Sunday morning, witnesses reported.But in the afternoon the streets appeared to be calm, they said, adding that troops and policemen reinforcements were deployed in the town.The government said in a statement it sent reinforcements to secure residential areas and strategic installations in Sebha and that a “committee of elders” was trying to end the unrest.The fighting was the worst between the rival tribes since they struck a ceasefire agreement in March 2012 following deadly battles that killed at least 150 people and wounded 400 others.The Toubous have long complained of marginalisation by Libyan society, while Arab tribes have accused the minority of employing foreign fighters, particularly from Chad.The tribal clashes in Sebha could have a knock-on effect on production at several nearby oilfields in the mostly-desert south.Libya is currently struggling with a months-long oil crisis, which erupted when security guards at key oil terminals in the east shut them down, accusing the authorities of corruption and demanding a more equitable distribution of oil revenues.Oil Minister Abdelbari al-Arusi said last month that lost production from the blockades had cost Libya about $9.0 billion (6.6 billion euros) in revenues.last_img read more

The Seahawks Dont Stand A Chance Unless Russell Wilson Can Keep Up

The most anticipated matchup of the divisional round of the NFL playoffs might be the Atlanta Falcons’ No. 1 scoring offense against the Seattle Seahawks’ No. 3 scoring defense. But the game between the two teams may be decided when the ball is in Russell Wilson’s hand.When the two met in Week 6, the Seahawks edged the Falcons in Seattle, 26-24. But both teams have played a lot of football since then, and though Wilson has already led the Seahawks to eight playoff wins in his young career, he might not have enough talent around him to go into the Georgia Dome on Saturday and end the Falcons’ season.The most obvious change to either team has been the Seahawks’ loss of safety Earl Thomas; his five-year Pro Bowl streak ended when he missed five of the Seahawks’ last six regular-season games with injuries. With him patrolling the backfield, the Seahawks allowed just 16.4 points per game. In the Seahawks’ five regular-season games without him, opponents averaged 22.4 points, including 34 points in a home capitulation to the already-eliminated Arizona Cardinals.But as much as the Seahawks have missed Thomas, it is their offense that has struggled with explosiveness and consistency all season. The 26-6 final score of last week’s wild card game against the Detroit Lions might make it look as though the Seahawks are back to business as usual. But going into the fourth quarter the score was just 10-6.While the Seahawks’ offensive line earned praise for its dominant run-blocking performance against Detroit, it also allowed slumping Lions pass-rusher Ezekiel Ansah to register two sacks, as many as he tallied throughout the regular season. The Seahawks will have a much tougher task on Saturday when they face the Falcons’ Vic Beasley, who had 15.5 sacks in the regular season.Tailback Thomas Rawls set a franchise playoff rushing record against the Lions, but going into the rematch with the Falcons there’s little depth behind him. Christine Michael, the Seahawks’ top rusher in the first Atlanta game, now plays for the Green Bay Packers. Head coach Pete Carroll told reporters that C.J. Procise, who has been out since Week 11 with a shoulder injury, will be a game-time decision; fifth-round rookie Alex Collins would be the only option behind Rawls if Procise can’t go.Between Michael, tailback C.J. Spiller and receiver/returner Tyler Lockett, 43 percent of the Seahawks’ 333 total yards in Week 6 were produced by players no longer on the Seahawks active roster, and the Falcons still outgained them 362-333 in that game. Wilson targeted wideouts on just 43.2 percent of his attempts; according to Pro Football Reference’s charting, he attempted only two passes deeper than 14 yards all day. He threw no touchdowns.The lack of deep passing that day was partly by design, to keep opposing pass-rushers off the banged-up Wilson.“We’ve been careful in how we would expose Russ,” head coach Pete Carroll later told the team’s official site. “He was begging us to do more and all that, but we were trying to do the right thing by him, and he was doing phenomenal things just to play for the last two months.” But Wilson’s adjusted yards-per-attempt didn’t increase meaningfully after that interview.Though three rushing touchdowns got Seattle the points they needed to win in Week 6, they might not have happened if the Falcons hadn’t set them up: Ryan’s sack-fumble on his own nine-yard line led to the game’s first score; his interception near midfield set up the last one.Even then, it almost wasn’t enough. The Seahawks’ final go-ahead field goal still left Ryan and company with a 1:57 to drive for a game-winning score; a controversial fourth-down no-call sent them packing:Since that play, however, the Falcons spent the season improving — and proving themselves the better team.In Football Outsiders’ Weighted DVOA, which prioritizes recent performance, the Falcons are the No. 4-ranked overall team at 19.8 percent; the Seahawks are ranked 14th at 4.7 percent. While the Seahawks’ offense ranked 17th in both season-long (-2.7 percent) and weighted (-2.1 percent) DVOA, the Falcons’ defense rises from 27th (8.1 percent) to 22nd (5.6 percent) when recent games are more heavily weighted.Now Wilson will have go on the road and score more points against the improved Falcons than Ryan can score against the Seahawks’ struggling defense.Check out our latest NFL playoff predictions. read more
