Anand (Gujarat): Amul Milk prices have been hiked by Rs 2 a litre with effect from Tuesday across all its six brands sold in major markets of Delhi NCR, Gujarat, West Bengal, Uttarakhand and Maharashtra. The Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which markets dairy products under the brand name of Amul, on Monday announced that the revised maximum retail price of 500 ml pack of Amul Gold in Ahmedabad will be Rs 27, Amul Shakti will be Rs 25, Amul Taaza will be Rs 21 and Amul Diamond will be Rs 28. Cow milk prices remain unchanged.

This increase in milk prices by Rs 2 per litre has happened after a gap of two years with an aim to provide remunerative milk purchase price to our milk producers owing to drop in milk production and increase in the cost of production,” a GCMMF statement said. The current decision had also to be taken because of adverse conditions in the national and international dairy markets, it said.

Similarly, the rate of green fodder has seen hike of more than 100 per cent this summer,” the GCMMF said. “For the milk producers, the milk purchase prices paid must cover various input costs such as feed and fodder cost, labour cost, cost of veterinary treatment etc. and some profits for running livelihood of their family,” it added.
A subpoena was issued for Ms. Campbell, 40, to appear on 29 July in The Hague in the Netherlands, where the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL) is sitting for the trial of Mr. Taylor on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity.Three judges of the SCSL’s trial chamber, in announcing the subpoena, said they were responding to a request from prosecutors for Ms. Campbell to testify.Media reports say the prosecution wants to ask Ms. Campbell about allegations that she was given a so-called blood diamond – a diamond that is mined in a war zone and then sold to finance the activities of an army, insurgency or warlord – by Mr. Taylor while attending a private dinner at the home of the former South African president Nelson Mandela in 1997.Mr. Taylor has long been accused of using blood diamonds to fuel conflict in Sierra Leone while he served as president of neighbouring Liberia.Mr. Taylor has pleaded not guilty to 11 charges, which include pillage, slavery for forced marriage purposes, collective punishment and the recruitment and use of child soldiers. The charges relate to his alleged support for two rebel groups in Sierra Leone – the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council and the Revolutionary United Front.The SCSL was set up jointly by the Sierra Leonean Government and the UN in 2002 and is headquartered in Freetown, the capital. It is mandated to try those who bear the greatest responsibility for serious violations of international humanitarian law and national law committed on Sierra Leonean territory since the end of November 1996. 1 July 2010Judges at the United Nations-backed war crimes court in Sierra Leone today ordered the high-profile British model Naomi Campbell to give evidence later this month about a blood diamond in the ongoing trial of the notorious former Liberian president Charles Taylor. read more
OTTAWA — The financial health of Canadian households improved ever so slightly in the final three months of 2013, a development that will give some comfort to the Bank of Canada in maintaining its low-interest-rate policy.Statistics Canada said Friday that household worth in the country rose by 3% to $217,700 on a per capita basis in the fourth quarter, largely as a result of a sharp 5.9% gain in the value of shares and other equities held by Canadians.Overall, national net worth rose 2.7% to $7.7 trillion in the fourth quarter, reaching $218,500 on a per capita basis, a 2.5% gain from the third quarter.And national net foreign debt fell by $98.1 billion, edging Canada into a net asset position of $26.7 billion, the agency said.The most encouraging news was that households accumulated debt in the fourth quarter of last year at the slowest annualized pace since 2001, pushing the much-watched debt to disposable income ratio down two-tenths of a point to 164%.The decrease means Canadians owe nearly $1.64 for every $1 in disposable income they earn in a year.While still at near-record levels, the measure has essentially stalled, as the Bank of Canada has predicted, and is likely to fall back further if housing cools and incomes keep rising as many expect.Most other measures of financial health also improved, with net worth hitting an all-time high on the strength of rising home values and robust strong equity markets. As well, owner equity in real estate rose as did assets to debt.“Canadians are easing back on their reliance on debt,” said Laura Cooper, an economist with RBC.“It’s particularly good news for policy makers because the risks posed by household indebtedness seems to be easing. It does still pose a risk, but the easing allows the Bank of Canada to again focus on spurring inflation and closing the output gap.”Cooper said she expects the moderating trend to continue as the housing market cools and fewer Canadians take out mortgages.BMO chief economist Doug Porter cautions it may be too early to declare victory, however, noting that the household debt to income remains higher than a year ago, and that the winter months usually show a dip in the ratio.“Still, today’s results should be mildly encouraging for policy makers, and suggest that the Bank of Canada’s view that imbalances are evolving constructively is reasonable,” he added.The Bank of Canada has long warned about Canadians accumulating too much debt in this unusual era of low borrowing costs, but has been restrained from pushing back with higher rates for fear of damaging the economy. However, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has moved to restrain borrowing, especially in the housing sector, with measures that made mortgages more costly for high-leverage borrowers.At the end of the fourth quarter, Canadians held $1.1 trillion in mortgage debt, up 1.1% from the third, and $508 billion in credit debt, up 0.5% from the previous period.However, the household debt service ratio — interest paid as a percentage of disposable income — remained at a record low, the agency noted, due to continuing low interest rates and income gains.And household equity in held real estate rose marginally to 69.5%.The Canadian Press read more
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) today rejected an arrest warrant issued April 2000 by Belgium against the then-Foreign Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Court found that the international circulation by Belgium of the arrest warrant against Abdulaye Yerodia Ndombasi failed to respect the immunity from criminal jurisdiction and the inviolability which the incumbent Minister for Foreign Affairs enjoyed under international law. The ICJ also ruled that Belgium must cancel the arrest warrant. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) had brought the case to the ICJ in October 2000 in an attempt to block Belgium’s international arrest warrant. Belgium was seeking Mr. Ndombasi’s extradition for alleged crimes constituting “grave violations of international humanitarian law.” read more
“The Conference has brought the necessary momentum and provided us with a roadmap for South-South and triangular cooperation,” said Achim Steiner, the Administrator of the UN Development Program UNDP and Secretary-General of the Conference, during the closing ceremony.“If we reflect on the changes that have taken place in the global economy, in development, in human wellbeing since the signing of first BAPA 40 years ago, it’s clear that there are no limits to what we can achieve when we combine forces. We have forged new partnerships for current and future concerted efforts and seen the spectrum of opportunities available to us”, he added, inviting Member States to double down on the achievements of the last 40 years to solve some of the greatest challenges of our time.South-South cooperation refers to the technical cooperation among developing countries in the Global South. It is a tool used by the states, international organizations, academics, civil society and the private sector to collaborate and share knowledge, skills and successful initiatives in specific areas such as agricultural development, human rights, urbanization, health, climate change etc. Triangular cooperation is collaboration in which traditional donor countries and multilateral organizations facilitate South-South initiatives through the provision of funding, training, management and technological systems, as well as other forms of support.The outcome document recognizes that South-South and triangular cooperation contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions, asi it shares a comprehensive vision of development, including economic, social and environmental aspects. It furthers acknowledge the importance of triangular cooperation, when a third party, either a developed country or an organization assists a South-South exchange with resources, or expertise.The political declaration also calls to enhance the development effectiveness of those two types of cooperation and notes that they are increasingly taking different and evolving forms in a broader scope that when the Buenos Aires Plan of Action was established in 1978.An example of multilateralismThe President of the UN General Assembly, Maria Fernanda Espinosa, also addressed the closing ceremony, underscoring the positive role of multilateralism in achieving “outstanding results” through cooperation.“Our efforts have been worthwhile, the final document reflects the evolution of South South cooperation and constitutes a path into the future. It opens up a range of possibilities to further expand the horizons of solidarity collaboration, also with other developed countries and other central actors. The triangular cooperation incorporates us as strategic partners, it also includes a mechanism of voluntary reports that will allow us to measure the impact of these cooperation modalities”, she said.Mr. Espinosa highlighted that South-South cooperation and triangular cooperation help to accelerate the implementation of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development by eradicating poverty and hunger, ensuring more health services, quality education, promoting environmental protection and by stopping discrimination and violence against women among other goals.A successful outcome¨Forty years after the conference which gave birth to the idea of South-South cooperation and later triangular cooperation, over 150 countries came back to Buenos Aires not only to celebrate 40 years of evolving a concept that today is part of the mainstream of development, but indeed to provide direction and future impulse,” Mr. Steiner told UN News, stressing his belief that the outcome of the conference was very positive.“The model of development cooperation of the 1960s and 1970s which saw a world of the North transferring technology and models of development to the South is long gone. Much of the innovations that drive development today have their origins in the South” he added.The UNDP chief also underscored that a global community of nations, particularly in the South depend on the world acting together to implement the Paris Agreement and protect biodiversity.“Many of the opportunities today in this domain are in fact being developed in the nations of the Global South. They provide perhaps the best hope of transforming economic development into something else than just mining nature or polluting the atmosphere,” Mr. Steiner stated.For his part, the Special Envoy of South-South Cooperation said that the outcome document brings countries together to commit to a broader scope of collaboration that goes beyond the technical aspects to address global issues.“Not just technical cooperation but also financial, and economical, trade. We also called for the cooperation of new actors in the private sector, civil society organizations, and non-governmental organizations”, said Jorge Chediek.“This conference will be a landmark moment after which more of what is being done already will be better informed and better systematized to show how South South-cooperation is a tool to build a better world”, he told UN news.According to Mr. Chediek, a great step was taken in the declaration by recognizing that South-South and triangular cooperation are essential elements of the international cooperation.“They used to be in the margins. The document ratifies that they are central and essential”, the Special Envoy said.A 160 delegations from member States and almost 4000 participants from non governmental organizations, UN agencies, and civil society participated during four days in BAPA+40.The political declaration reached at the conference also calls to the Secretary General to report on the implementation of the agreements reached, which will be vital to attain the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). read more
Mr Rees explained that significantly three of the bodies were found in almost the same location around St Margarets’ churchyard just yards from the defendant’s flat.The fourth body was found slumped outside the communal entrance to the flats where he lived. Following their deaths, Mr Port is accused of dragging their bodies from his flat and dumping them just yards from his front door.It is suggested he even propped their bodies up in the sitting position and in three cases, planted drugs on them to make it look as if their deaths had been the result of accidental overdoses.The jury was told he even faked a suicide note found on the body of one of the victims, Mr Whitworth.Other alleged victims claim they were surreptitiously drugged by the defendant before he either raped or sexually assaulted them.In total, Mr Port, who worked as a chef in a bus garage canteen, faces 29 charges including four counts of murder, four alternative counts of manslaughter, seven allegations of rape, ten of administering a substance and four of assault by penetration. Opening the case against him at the Old Bailey, Jonathan Rees QC, prosecuting, said Mr Port’s actions were “driven by his appetite for having sexual intercourse with younger gay males while they were unconscious through drugs”.He went on: “The prosecution allege that in order to satisfy this appetite the defendant sought surreptitiously to drug 11 out of 12 of his victims in order to render then unconscious.”The jury was told that he did this either by spiking their drinks or in some cases injecting the substance into them prior to sex.Mr Rees said the defendant would often watch “drug rape pornography” and occasionally filmed himself having sex with men who were unconscious.

The bodies of three of the young men were found dumped in and around St Margaret’s Church in Barking, east LondonCredit:Nick Ansell/PA Court artist sketch of Stephen Port appearing in the dock of the Old Bailey flanked by a security guardCredit:Elizabeth Cook/PA The court heard there was evidence to suggest Mr Port used a range of legal and illegal drugs in the course of his sexual encounters, including poppers, or amyl nitrate, viagra, the amphetamine related stimulant Meow Meow, methamphetimine, otherwise known as Crystal Meth, and GHB, which is a powerful sedative.The post-mortem examinations of the four young men who died revealed each had died from a drug overdose featuring high levels of GHB.The jury heard that there were a number of other similarities between the circumstances of the four deaths, including the fact that each of the victims was aged between 21 and 25; they all died a short time after meeting Mr Port at his flat; three of the victims had a bottle of GHB “planted”’ on them and none of their mobile phones could be found. Anthony Walgate, Daniel Whitworth and Jack TaylorCredit:Facebook Mr Rees said it “offends against common sense to suggest that it was just an unfortunate coincidence” that the four young men had died of a GHB overdose shortly after meeting the defendant.He said: “In a nutshell it is the prosecution case that in respect of each of the four young men who died the defendant had either directly administers a high level of GHB to, or caused GHB to be taken by the victim without his consent so that he could have sexual intercourse with the victim while he was unconscious.”Mr Port denies all the charges and the trial continues. A chef who was “turned on” by having sex with unconscious men killed four of his victims after giving them overdoses of date rape drugs, a court has heard.Stephen Port, 41, who described himself as 70 per cent gay, admitted being attracted to “young boyish-looking men”, in their late teens and early 20s.Using various social media sites, including Grindr, he had a series of one-night stands, during which it is alleged he “spiked” his partners’ drinks in order to satisfy his “propensity for sex with unconscious men”.The prosecution allege that during a period of three-and-a-half years, between 2012 and 2015, he committed a series of sexual offences against 12 young men – four of whom died.The bodies of Anthony Walgate, Gabriel Kovari and Daniel Whitworth, were all discovered in Barking between June and September 2014.The body of Mr Port’s fourth alleged victim, Jack Taylor, was discovered in September 2015, also in Barking. Four of Stephen Port’s alleged victims suffered overdoses and were dumped in or near a churchyard in east LondonCredit:Facebook Stephen Port poses topless for a selfie he posted on Facebook Credit:Facebook Despite the similarities in the four deaths and the fact they took place within 15 months of one another, the cases were not initially linked.But the jury was told Mr Port had even been convicted of an offence of perverting the course of justice and jailed after lying about the circumstances of Mr Walgate’s death. read more

Image: Nature Materials (2012) doi:10.1038/nmat3380 Explore further Journal information: Nature Materials More information: A flexible and highly sensitive strain-gauge sensor using reversible interlocking of nanofibres, Nature Materials (2012) doi:10.1038/nmat3380AbstractFlexible skin-attachable strain-gauge sensors are an essential component in the development of artificial systems that can mimic the complex characteristics of the human skin. In general, such sensors contain a number of circuits or complex layered matrix arrays. Here, we present a simple architecture for a flexible and highly sensitive strain sensor that enables the detection of pressure, shear and torsion. The device is based on two interlocked arrays of high-aspect-ratio Pt-coated polymeric nanofibres that are supported on thin polydimethylsiloxane layers. When different sensing stimuli are applied, the degree of interconnection and the electrical resistance of the sensor changes in a reversible, directional manner with specific, discernible strain-gauge factors. The sensor response is highly repeatable and reproducible up to 10,000 cycles with excellent on/off switching behaviour. We show that the sensor can be used to monitor signals ranging from human heartbeats to the impact of a bouncing water droplet on a superhydrophobic surface. To replicate the beetle sensing abilities, the team attached a multitude of polymer fibers, each just 1 micrometer long and 100 nanometers around, to a solid base, forming what looked like a tiny bed of nails. They then created another just like it and placed in on top of the first, causing the “hairs” of each to intermingle, sort of like pushing two hairbrushes together. Since each fiber was coated with a very thin layer of metal, the team was able to measure electrical current sent though them. The amount of current varied at each hair junction depending on how much of the hair touched another, and that varied depending on external stimulation. With this arrangement, the team was able to measure torque (twisting motion), direct overhead pressure and sheer, which is what happens when the material is subjected to sideways movement, such as a gentle caress.In testing their artificial skin, the team found that they were able to trace the path of a tiny bug as it made its way across its surface, to detect the motion of a water droplet and even the subtle beating of a human heart when it was placed against the skin.The researchers say that their method replaces the complex circuits that others have used to allow robots to “feel” their environment with something that is much simpler to create and use. Their design is also somewhat proven in that the sensor reception electronics is not unlike that used in some screen displays that rely on tactile input via user’s fingers.In addition to allowing robots to gain a better understanding of their environment, it’s possible the new technology might one day be used to help human beings who have lost feeling in their skin or better, as way to restore sensation to those with artificial limbs. Neuroscientist shows bats feel their way through the air using tiny hair sensors (Phys.org) — Engineers from South Korea and the United States working together have developed a new type of artificial skin that is less complex, cheaper to make and more sensitive than other electronic sensors designed to mimic human skin. In their paper published in Nature Materials, the team says the idea for their strain gauging material came from the way tiny hairs on some beetles’ bodies interlock with equally tiny hairs on their wings, allowing them to sense very small external stimuli.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Scientists around the world have reached a consensus regarding the reason that the dinosaurs (except for bird relatives) went extinct—a large asteroid struck the Earth just off what is now the Yucatan peninsula, hurling so much soot and other material into the atmosphere that the planet became too cold (for approximately three years) for the dinosaurs and most other land animals to survive. But now, it appears that they might have survived had the asteroid struck almost anywhere else.To learn more about the event that had such a huge impact on the history of our planet, Kaiho and Oshima used a computer to analyze multiple data sources surrounding the impact and the location where it struck—the resulting simulation showed how much soot would have been generated based on the amount of hydrocarbon material in the ground near the impact site. Such hydrocarbons would include not just oil or coal deposits, but other rocks that also contained oil—more hydrocarbons would mean more soot and gases making their way into the atmosphere. The research pair also created a map showing surface hydrocarbon densities across the globe at the time.They found that the site where the asteroid struck was particularly dense in hydrocarbons—87 percent of the planet surface was less dense. That means, they claim, that if the asteroid had struck a place where it was less dense (which would have been almost anywhere else), much less soot would have been generated, and thus, the planet would not have cooled as much. And if the planet had not cooled so much, the dinosaurs might have survived, and that might have meant that we humans would never have had a chance to evolve. (Phys.org)—A pair of researchers at Tohoku University has found evidence suggesting that if the asteroid that struck the Earth near Chicxulub 66 million years ago had landed almost anywhere else, it would not have been nearly as destructive. In their paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, Kunio Kaiho and Naga Oshima suggest that had the asteroid struck another part of the planet it is likely the dinosaurs would have survived. Mass extinction only occurred when the asteroid having 9-km diameter hit the orange areas. Credit: Kunio Kaiho Did a burning oil spill wipe out the dinosaurs? More information: Kunio Kaiho et al. Site of asteroid impact changed the history of life on Earth: the low probability of mass extinction, Scientific Reports (2017). DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-14199-xAbstractSixty-six million years ago, an asteroid approximately 9 km in diameter hit the hydrocarbon- and sulfur-rich sedimentary rocks in what is now Mexico. Recent studies have shown that this impact at the Yucatan Peninsula heated the hydrocarbon and sulfur in these rocks, forming stratospheric soot and sulfate aerosols and causing extreme global cooling and drought. These events triggered a mass extinction, including dinosaurs, and led to the subsequent macroevolution of mammals. The amount of hydrocarbon and sulfur in rocks varies widely, depending on location, which suggests that cooling and extinction levels were dependent on impact site. Here we show that the probability of significant global cooling, mass extinction, and the subsequent appearance of mammals was quite low after an asteroid impact on the Earth’s surface. This significant event could have occurred if the asteroid hit the hydrocarbon-rich areas occupying approximately 13% of the Earth’s surface. The site of asteroid impact, therefore, changed the history of life on Earth.

They noted also that the Cepheids appeared to be grouped into clusters, suggesting that they may have formed at or near the same time.

In this new effort, the researchers have found that our galaxy is even more wobbly than has been suspected.To create their new map, the researchers used data from the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment—a long term sky surveying project based at the University of Warsaw. More specifically, the researchers wanted data regarding Cepheids, which are a unique type of pulsating star. They were useful to the researchers because they pulse with regularity and brightness. This means that their true brightness can be calculated and compared to the brightness of them as seen here from Earth—doing so allows for very accurately measuring how far away from us they are. By amassing data from 2,431 Cepheids (collected over six years) and putting them all on a map together, the researchers were able to produce a 3-D representation of the Milky Way, at least from the perspective of Cepheids. The model they created is the first to be built using direct measurements of star distances, thus it is the most accurate to date. Play Cepheid stars change their brightness in a very regular pattern as a result of stellar pulsations. Credit: P.

Imagine not experiencing life for a single day. It is difficult to imagine that nearly 1 crore 80 lakh people in India are blind. The tragedy is that 80 percent of the blind population can be cured. But because of lack of awareness and poor donation rate, they live in darkness and are deprived of the joys of life.’Actor Nandana Sen further added, ‘We are proud to pitch in for the cause of eye donations. The movie Rang Rasiya is all about a Painter and the vibrant colours of life. So it is only natural for us to help someone experience the colours of life.

New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Top Stories Instead of being admired for their bravery, some of those “who had escaped were being called Boko Haram wives,” said Segun. After speaking to one of the girls, Segun “got the sense from her that it deeply, deeply shamed her and her companions … they were being discriminated against because of close contact with Boko Haram and stigmatized,” Segun said.She said some of those girls have left Chibok and are living with relatives or supportive family friends elsewhere. “These girls weren’t even touched (raped),” said Segun, “but Boko Haram is so despised that anyone identified with the group shares some of that label, the slur.”___Associated Press writers Haruna Umar in Maiduguri, Nigeria and Ibrahim Abdulaziz in Yola contributed to this story.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Four benefits of having a wireless security system Check your body, save your life “The most important thing is to restore their dignity,” the executive director of the United Nations Population Fund, Babatunde Osotimehin, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from his office in New York.“When you have been in captivity against your will, and God knows whatever they have done to them, some of them will have been violated, some raped, food insecure … We need to take them, work with them and bring them back to the reality of their lives,” said Osotimehin, who is Nigerian.His agency is providing the women and girls with intense psychosocial counseling and medical care for reproductive and maternal health. It is also encouraging communities to allow the girls to return in peace.That will be a challenge, going by comments made last week by Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno, the home state of Boko Haram and the one most affected by the nearly 6-year-old Islamic uprising that has killed more than 12,000 people and forced more than 1.5 million from their homes.The governor said he feared that girls and women raped and made pregnant by the extremists could be breeding a new generation of terrorists.Shettima called for a special monitoring program of the mothers to identify paternity because he said the militants had deliberately impregnated them so they would give birth to future insurgents. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Sponsored Stories YOLA, Nigeria (AP) — The taunts wouldn’t stop. “Boko Haram wives,” the schoolgirls were called because they had been briefly held by Nigeria’s Islamic extremists before escaping. The teasing was so relentless that some of the Chibok girls left their town and families.Their plight does not bode well for hundreds of girls and women recently rescued from months of captivity by Boko Haram, including dozens who are pregnant. After enduring captivity by the militants, the females may now face stigma from their communities. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility “I am seriously worried with the fact that most women tend to hate and abandon children they deliver from rape. Now, the problem is that these children could go to the streets unattended to, they then lack access to food, health care and education. The result is that they could indeed inherit their fathers’ (ideology) somehow,” Shettima told government officials, according to the Nigerian press.Such statements from a man of Shettima’s standing are “very unfortunate” and would reinforce the very stigma he says he wants to avoid, said Human Rights Watch researcher Mausi Segun.Segun has interviewed many females who escaped from Boko Haram and described their experiences as “very traumatizing and horrifying.”The mass kidnapping of nearly 300 students who were writing science exams at a boarding school in the town of Chibok a year ago brought Boko Haram to the attention of the world and elicited international outrage. The extremists abducted a hundreds more in their campaign across northeastern Nigeria.The stigma of Boko Haram has tainted girls who escaped their captors.Segun described the experience of some of “the Chibok girls,” as they have come to be known, who escaped in the first couple of days of their abductions. Some got away as they were being transported in open trucks by grabbing the branches of low hanging trees. Comments Share Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day read more
