Flights to and from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport were delayed by 35 minutes owing to heavy rain and low visibility, said an official. Long-distance services on the Central Railway’s Mumbai-Pune sector were hit following the derailment of at least four wagons of a goods train between Jambrung and Thakurwadi in the Monkey Hill section of the Western Ghats early on Monday. Several Mumbai-Pune trains were cancelled, some diverted and other long-distance trains hit at various locations en route as the CR made frantic efforts to restore normalcy. Railway tracks were flooded at locations like Sion, Matunga and Kurla, impacting the CR’s suburban sector with trains running behind schedule, delaying lakhs of office-goers and students. On the Western Railway (WR), some material from ongoing construction work fell and broke the overhead electric wires at Marine Line, hitting services on the slow line between Churchgate-Mumbai Central around 8 a.m. Restoration was taken up on a war-footing and services were restored at 11 a.m., said a WR official, while heavy rains led to cancellation of several outstation services today. Road traffic took the brunt of the heavy rain with water-logging in several areas of the city, eastern and western suburbs, though a majority of the subways escaped flooding as the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation activated pumps to throw out the gushing rain water. As students were stranded in the rain in different areas, some schools in and around central Mumbai declared a precautionary holiday. In Palghar district, the Surya River was hovering near the danger mark, posing a risk to at least 26 villages on its banks even as relief agencies were kept on standby. Thane city and district were also lashed by heavy flooding several parts of the city, including housing complexes, stranding people and halting vehicular traffic. The IMD has forecast heavy to very heavy spells in and around Mumbai on Monday, with rainy conditions likely to continue for the next four days, and temperatures at a maximum of 28 degrees and 23 degrees.last_img read more

The Latest Brazil causes roadblocks at UN climate talks

first_imgKATOWICE, Poland — The Latest on the U.N. climate talks in Poland (all times local):4:30 p.m.Attempts by developed nations at the U.N. climate talks in Poland to create watertight rules for international carbon emissions trading have prompted new, last-minute demands from Brazil.Officials say the closing meeting at the U.N. climate talks has been delayed until 6 p.m. (1700 GMT) Saturday, prompting a collective groan from delegates.Negotiators from almost 200 countries appeared close to clinching a deal Saturday on the rules that will govern the 2015 Paris climate accord, after two weeks of intense negotiations in Poland.The most recent draft agreement published by the Polish official chairing the meeting set out most of the terms under which countries must report their greenhouse gas emissions and efforts to cut them.Language on increasing efforts to curb climate change was postponed until a U.N. summit in New York in September.___9 a.m.A deal on the rules that govern the Paris climate accord appeared within grasp Saturday, as officials from almost 200 countries worked to bridge remaining differences after two weeks of U.N. talks in Poland.The 2015 Paris Agreement was a landmark moment in international diplomacy, bringing together governments with vastly different views to tackle the common threat of global warming. But while the accord set a headline target of keeping average global temperatures from rising by more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) — or 1.5 C (2.7 F) if possible — much of the fine print was left unfinished.The meeting in Poland’s southern city of Katowice was meant to finalize how countries report their emissions of greenhouses gases — a key factor in man-made climate change — and the efforts they’re taking to reduce them. Poor countries also wanted assurances on financial support to help them cut emissions, adapt to inevitable changes such as sea level rise and pay for damage that’s already happened.n?The Associated Presslast_img read more

Media rights group slams comments made against Indian journalist in Colombo

A media rights group has slammed comments made against an Indian journalist based in Colombo after she reported on comments made by President Maithripala Sirisena at a cabinet meeting recently.The Free Media Movement (FMM) said the allegations against The Hindu correspondent Meera Srinivasan by the Government and its supporters regarding her reportage about a statement made at the cabinet meeting go beyond the right of reply and have become a threat, violating media freedom and freedom of expression. The Hindu newspaper had published a news report, under the by-line Meera Srinivasan, as President Maithripala Sirisena at a cabinet meeting had made a statement that RAW is engaged in activities to assassinate him. The news was denied by the President’s side. At the same time, The Hindu newspaper has maintained that this news was confirmed by four ministers. The Free Media Movement feels that the baseless allegation against a Colombo based foreign correspondent is an act of bullying and urged all concerned to respect the right of a journalist to conceal the source of information. (Colombo Gazette) The General Secretary of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Mahinda Amaraweera later claimed that four Ministers were linked to RAW through the Indian correspondent and were providing information. read more

Google tries for the TV a third time now with a 35

first_imgGoogle has been paying attention to the web. They see that people are consuming more and more media online. While most people watch on their computers, very few watch on the television. Google TV was their first attempt to bring the web to the TV, but that didn’t work out very well. Google’s Chrome team has a new approach to bringing the web to the TV, and they have called it Chromecast.Chromecast is a simple HDMI dongle that gets plugged in to the back of the television and works in much the same way that Google’s Nexus Q was designed to work. Your mobile device becomes the controller, and you can share content from your phone to the television. In areas where you are allowed to Chromecast, you’ll see a logo pop up that allows you to stream content from that app to the television. For YouTube, this means being able to re-create the Nexus Q experience with anyone who is on your home network. While streaming, you still have the ability to use your phone the way you want, because the phone is just the instruction point. The actual streaming is happening on the HDMI stick.Chromecast can stream 1080p with 5.1 surround sound, and can be controlled by Android, iOS, or anything running Google Chrome in a PC environment. Apps that are connected to Chromecast are aware of what is streaming on your device, and synchronizes between them. If you leave, the video doesn’t stop being streamed because the stream is actually happening on the dongle. Like the Nexus Q, all of Google’s properties are available to stream. Google Play Music and Movies are included, but Pandora and Netflix are among the list of supported apps as well. A beta feature that is expected to be available with the launch of the Chromecast is the ability to clone your web browser on your television. Anything with a Chrome tab can share just the browser onto the television.Developers who want to take advantage of this tools have access to the Google Cast SDK, with a developer preview being made available today to make their apps compliant with this new feature. According to Google, this will be a very simple tool that can be easily added to any app. The SDK is available for Chrome, iOS, and Android.Chromecast will be available for $35 in the US on the Google Play store, dramatically undercutting competitors like Apple TV and AirPlay. Starting July 28th, Chromecast will also be available in Best Buy locations, and for a limited time will include a free month of Netflix for new subscribers.last_img read more

Claire and Teal split their year between fishing for salmon in Prince William Sound and for halibut in the Aleutians, and spending the winters running Salmon Sisters in Homer. Salmon Sisters has partnered up with Kaladi Brothers Coffee to create a special edition roast, Mug Up, to pass along the tradition and help benefit those in need. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享In Alaska’s commercial fishing industry, ‘Mug Up’ is a time when fishermen and dock workers break together to enjoy a hot cup of coffee and share stories of the sea.

3 Tips for Custom Video Launches

first_imgStack Media, Inc. was founded in 2005 as an athletic print publication, but it’s come a long way in the last eight years with a teen readership in print that now tops 4.88 million per issue. While the company was originally founded as a traditional publisher, it’s evolved to multiplatform media company—according to comScore, Stack.com is ranked among the top 15 largest U.S. digital sports properties with 8 million unique visitors per month.The company introduced video content into the mix in 2007 and currently has a library of 7,000 original videos that generate about 12 million views per month. In 2008, STACK Media launched a custom video initiative to include clients like Gatorade, Nike and Adidas, among others.Here, we detail Stack’s strategies for building a business with custom video from co-founder Chad Zimmerman. Check back with FOLIO: this week for the second half of the list.1. Determine if Custom Video is Right for You Think about your core clients. Does your advertising base care about video?Have you done research with your audience? Does your audience care about video? Don’t assume an ‘If you build it, they will come,’ strategy.Will your brands translate to video? Ask yourself if your content niche lends itself to brand integration, sponsorship or truly custom content.2. Getting Started—Production Capabilities and BudgetsWhen launching this type of initiative, you can start with freelancers if you don’t have internal staff, but maintain control and oversight. As volume grows, bring projects in house. A team of 1-3 talented producers-editors can do a lot to propel this business. Remember to keep things lean. A shoot for digital video shouldn’t require more than 1-2 cameras.Remember that many RFPs won’t have a production budget. Use a percentage of the media spend to fund custom production—this will help to set the scope and scale of the project. If marketers like your concepts but want something bigger, this is a great opportunity to upsell the project. Once you’ve closed the deal, always get the client involved to ensure focus and direction is on point. Don’t forget to be careful—agencies can sometimes get caught up on “new and innovative” and lose site of audience needs and/or budget constraints.3. Be the ExpertKnow what your audience wants from video—long-form or short-form? Entertainment, how-to or episodic? Heavily produced or raw and voyeuristic? Remember, authenticity is always key.Don’t be afraid to suggest new concepts if the marketer’s ideas are off point—always bring ideas back to what’s best for your audience. If the audience doesn’t care about it why create it?Offer format and concept options. Provide your client with product/service overviews and testimonials. Try to introduce product integration into more authentic stories. Offer sponsorships of existing or new content package, but avoid promising viral videos since this can’t be guaranteed.last_img read more

Second shot at love for senior citizens of Kolkata

first_imgKolkata: Age is no bar for finding love, as was evident at a companionship meet in the city, where eleven senior citizens came together in search of a new lease of life. The senior citizen matrimony and companionship meet was organised on Sunday by NGO Anubandh Foundation at Calcutta Sports Journalists Club.One of the participants, a woman in her mid-60s, said she had been running her business successfully since her divorce from her husband in the late 1970s but there is “nothing more to look forward to” in her life. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights”I am looking for someone who can love me unconditionally as a friend, someone I could rely on”” the woman, who did not wish to be named, said.Another woman, a retired school teacher, said she wanted to be with someone with a progressive outlook.”My son does not ask about my whereabouts. A true life-long friend can provide me with the much needed security and solace,” she said.Amitava Desarkar, the founder-secretary of Anubandh Foundation said the project was an attempt to bring cheer to aged singletons, who often fall victim to depression. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedMost of the participants favoured live-in relationships over marriage, Desarkar said.”The void in their lives life, after retiring from a job, can sometimes make them miserable.

We are sure they will try and connect with us on Facebook,” Desarkar said. The participants had to submit their age certificate, stipulating that they were above 50 years. Each of them also submitted a copy of the death certificate of their spouses or a divorce document and a signed declaration of his or her marital status.The NGO will also soon organise a ‘Togetherness Tour’ to an outstation destination for interested senior citizens, the founder-secretary of the NGO said.”The members could find out about each other and bond well during the trip,” he added.last_img read more

It’s really unnecessary,” host Dwight Drummond told Glover. “Just move away from that gentleman.”Neither Glover nor Drummond responded to a request for comment. However, a spokesman for CBC denounced the man’s actions and praised the reporter.“Chris Glover showed remarkable composure and professionalism in the face of a very awkward situation,” Chuck Thompson said. “Unfortunately, the trend of harassing reporters continues and is something we take very seriously.”Thompson called the incident “troubling as they are unacceptable.” He did not say what, if anything, the broadcaster planned to do about the situation. Toronto police said they had no record of a complaint.Saskatchewan-born Banks, who has multiple film and TV credits including the CBC’s “Little Mosque on the Prairie,” could not be immediately reached for comment.In recent years, female reporters in particular have been the subject of crude, harassing catcalls which, in some cases, have resulted in charges against the perpetrator. More recently, other journalists have been physically assaulted while doing their jobs in public.The 40-second clip of Glover sparked outrage on social media, with some condemning what happened as an assault, and others saying they would not have remained so calm.“This is disgusting,” CBC reporter Lorenda Reddekopp tweeted. “I also can’t believe none of the bystanders did anything.”“This is so disturbing and I get more uncomfortable every time I watch,” said Toronto-based writer Jeffrey Vallis on Twitter. “Why do people think it’s OK to harass and assault reporters while they do their job?”Thompson said the particular assignment was viewed as “low risk” but noted situations can be unpredictable. Regardless, Thompson called the incident troubling.“This type of harassment is completely unacceptable from any individual,” he said.Colin Perkel, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Police defend safety policies in wake of teen cyclist death

first_imgTHE police have been forced to defend their road safety policies after a 13-year-old cyclist was killed by a motorist, the second such death in a week.The force was accused on Thursday of seeing bicycles as a problem instead of educating drivers on how the two types of road users can coexist.Damianos Pachy from Anayia was killed on Wednesday when he was hit by a car going in the same direction on the Pera Orinis to Arediou road.The driver of the vehicle, 63, was later arrested while a breathalyser test showed he had not been drinking.Pachy was riding around with three other friends. He had four other siblings. Reports said he had returned to Cyprus in May following treatment abroad for cancer, which he beat.It was the second death of a cyclist in recent days. A 33-year-old man was killed last week after he was hit from behind by a 76-year-old driver who fled the scene. He was arrested later in the day and he claimed he had not seen the cyclist.Chairman of the cycling federation Giorgos Apostolou said on Thursday that the state had been indifferent to their warnings.He said they had repeatedly warned the authorities that the number of cyclists was rising but the state could not adapt.Apostolou also said that police continued to focus on cyclists instead of educating motorists to pay more attention riders.He charged that officers often saw cyclists as an additional problem.Police spokesman Andreas Angelides denied that the force was not doing enough to educate people but conceded that more needed to be done in this respect.“It is understood and recognised that a change in mentality and culture is needed,” he said, announcing a meeting next week to look into what more could be done.He added, however, that it was “inconceivable and unfair” to accuse police of viewing cyclists as a problem.Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said the problem was linked to behaviour on the road and that was not an issue police could tackle alone.“We have conducted a survey into the behaviour of Cypriot drivers, which clearly highlighted the problem. They do not show the necessary respect to those on the road network with bicycles and motorbikes,” Nicolaou said.The minister said the right messages must be given to make drivers understand that they must display the necessary respect.“What the police can do as part of this effort is undertake its own campaign to convey its message through checks,” he said. You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
