Virat Kohli is definitely leading his team from the front as he once again came to the party with a masterly century to guide Royal Challengers Bangalore to a much-needed win over Rising Pune Supergiants at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Saturday. Chasing 192 for a win to stay in contention for top-four spot, RCB rode on Kohli’s strokeful 108 off 58 to post a seven-wicket win for their third victory. Continuing with his rich vein of form, Kohli hit his second century of the season, becoming the second captain after Adam Gilchrist to hit two hundreds in the cash-rich league. Kohli’s first ton against Gujarat Lions had gone in vain. 6000 T20 runs Kohli also joined the league of extraordinary gentlemen as he became the third Indian and seventh batsman overall to reach the 6000-run landmark in T20 cricket. Kohli said he was determined to go the extra mile. “I was pretty determined tonight. I had the motivation to go the extra mile, as we need to win six out of the remaining seven. The chase wasn’t easy, especially as we needed to find the boundary frequently,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony. ‘Rahul, Watson superb’ Kohli also lauded the efforts of fellow opener KL Rahul and Shane Watson for easing the pressure off him. “Superb contributions from Rahul and Watto. It’s important to keep your nerves in check. You can lose what you need to do, in the process otherwise. When you are chasing 12-13 an over, it’s important to not get bogged down despite losing wickets. It’s all about understanding the situation,” he said. Victory matters Kohli continues to lead the top-scorer’s list this season with 541 runs, including two centuries and four fifties. “I hadn’t hit any T20 hundred before this, and now I have two this season. I don’t really think about these things, the victory matters far more. Yeah, I do look at the scoreboard. It’s important to assess the scenarios,” he added.advertisement
New Delhi, May 18 (PTI) In the wake of Maggi controversy, food safety regulator FSSAI is working on new regulations for quality standards of instant noodles to better regulate the quality of taste-maker and other ingredients.The new regulations by the Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is aimed at brining in more clarity in the quality standards, sources said.This will be the first time that FSSAI would come up with quality standards specifically for instant noodles. So far, there have been one common standard for various kinds of ready-to-cook products including noodles.The new norms would clearly set the permissible limits of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and Ash content and also state the specific standards for taste maker, a key ingredient in the instant noodles, sources said.Earlier on April 1, the FSSAI had asked state authorities to launch proceedings against only those noodle or pasta companies that taste-enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG) in their products despite carrying No MSG or No added MSG label on the packets.Glutamate is naturally found in some common foods such as milk, spices, wheat, vegetables, etc.Presently there is no analytical method to determine whether MSG was added to the product during manufacturing or it was naturally present in the product. This can however be checked through inspection of manufacturing premises.In June last year, FSSAI had banned Nestles Maggi noodles over allegations of high lead content and presence of MSG.The Bombay High Court however later lifted the nationwide ban imposed by Indian food regulators on Maggi noodles, and asked Nestle India to go for a fresh test of samples in three independent laboratories across India.advertisementNestle re-launched Maggi noodles in Indian markets in November 2015.

Mumbai, Jul 7 (PTI) A day before the expansion of the Maharashtra Cabinet, Shiv Sena workers today burnt an effigy of Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar over his “demon” remark, which apparently alluded to frequent digs and taunts took by the Sena at the senior partner.Speaking at a party meet here last evening, Shelar, without naming Shiv Sena, had invoked a fable from Mahabharat, of a “small demon making too much of a noise”.Shelar also went on to add that BJPs Lord Krishna, a reference to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, would ensure that this demon would be bottled during the ensuing Mumbai civic polls.Today, Shelar said his analogy was twisted by media to create tension in the government.”I had narrated that tale only with the aim of making BJP workers understand that in every election, the tools are different,” Shelar said.The 20-month-old Fadnavis cabinet is slated to be expanded tomorrow but there is no word yet on Shiv Sena getting any additional berth, after the BJP gave its ally the could shoulder in the Union Cabinet expansion two days back.The state Cabinet expansion ceremony will be held at 9 AM tomorrow at Mantralaya, the state secretariat.

FSSAI will also take steps to bridge standards divideFSSAI will also take steps to bridge standards divide from farm to trade and to rediscover the rich culinary heritage of India.It also launched food safety display board that would help connect consumers directly with food safety officers. Twelve corporates including Mother Dairy, Haldiram, StarBucks, BurgerKing, among others, have already volunteered to display this board at their 1,300 outlets.Addressing a FSSAI conference late last evening, Health Minister J P Nadda had said the Centre will support the state governments in capacity building and setting up high quality labs for proper enforcement of food safety standards.”We are all for capacity building not only at the national level…We are working to have high quality labs. We are working to support states (in setting up) high quality laboratories,” Nadda said.The government will finetune the food safety standards to make it more meaningful, Nadda said. “It is (finetuning) a continuous process. We will be doing it,” the Minister said.He emphasised on more awareness programmes to promote safe food at home, schools, offices and eateries.Nadda said the food standards act is a paradigm shift from regulatory regime under the provisions of Food Adulteration Act to self-regulatory and facilitatory regime.”Now, basic groundwork is done. We are ready for a big leap forward,” Nadda said.The minister emphasised upon two-way communication between the food businesses and the regulator. He advised that the authority should be fully aware of the need and concerns of small food businesses as well in its work of standard formulation and compliance.advertisementFSSAI Chairperson Ashish Bahuguna said, “We have completed 10 formative years of this act and are now striving to work towards a collective approach for building safe food culture in India because food safety cannot be ensured by enforcement alone”.

Their bowlers have still managed to make an impression but the batsmen have let the side down with unending poor run.Languishing at the bottom of the table with four points from eight games, facing an in-form Sunrisers (13 points from 10 games) will be a tough proposition for Delhi especially with the kind of form opposition captain David Warner is in. Except for the initial period, Daredevils have struggled badly and have only gone from bad to worse.It is turning out to be yet another nightmarish season for the hosts and compounding their misery is a hamstring injury to captain Zaheer Khan, forcing him to miss out on the last match against Kings XI Punjab. Zaheer will also miss the game tonight and remains doubtful for the rest of the season. (Read Full Preview here)
Chennai, Dec 7 (PTI) Former world chess champion Viswanathan Anand has been roped in by Poker Sports League (PSL), a premium league in the country, as its brand ambassador. The league, which commenced operations last year, recently launched its second season on a much bigger platform with multiple new additions. “Poker, like chess, is a mind sport. Proud to be associated with PSL,” Anand wrote on his Twitter handle. “In the last couple of years, we have been observing a paradigm shift in peoples mindset for poker as a sport. The zeal displayed by poker lovers has given rise to a lot of platforms,” Anand was quoted as saying in a release. “My association with PSL is an attempt to establish the fact that Poker, like the game of chess, is indeed a game of skill, which involves a lot of strategy and a defined skill set,” he said in the release. “I have played chess all my life and when I was introduced to poker I could instantly draw the parallels, which made me connect better with the game,” Anand added. “PSLs main objective is to establish poker as a mind sport in India. We are proud that Anand agreed to be our brand ambassador. Its the biggest move ever – towards changing the negative perception of poker in India, PSL co-founder Pranav Bagai said. PTI SS VS
Consultant with the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE), Dr. Oscar Coto, says Jamaica has an opportunity to tap into international financing that can assist with its efforts at reducing the impacts of climate change. This, he said, can be accomplished through advancement of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Programme of Activities (PoA) as well as Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs). “If through a supported-type NAMA, the country can get recognition of some incremental critical costs that are involved in delivering some climate change mitigation, through activities in the country…those resources would be used to support the scaling up of (projects) for a better energy sector, more renewable energy, more efficiency within the society (and ultimately) better living for Jamaicans,” he said. Dr. Coto was speaking to JIS News following a workshop on potential for Programmatic CDM and NAMAs in Jamaica, at the Courtleigh Hotel in New Kingston on April 3. The CDM is one of the ‘project-based’ mechanisms defined in the Kyoto Protocol designed to promote projects that reduce green house gas (GHG) emissions. The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement created under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change(UNFCCC). PoAsrefer tovoluntary co-ordinated actions by a private or public entity that lead to GHG reductions through a number of CDM project activities. NAMAs are seen primarily as a way for developing countries – with financial and technological support from the international community – to make progress in reducing their own domestic GHG emissions. OLADE is providing support to the Government through the provision of technical assistance in order to contribute in the identification of opportunities for the development of CDM Programme of Activities as well as NAMAs. This is in keeping with Government’s activities to reduce the impacts of climate change within the energy sector. As such, Dr. Coto has prepared a report based on a ‘Study on the Identification of Potential Project Portfolios Associated to Programmatic CDM and NAMAs in Jamaica’, which he discussed during the workshop. In his presentation, Dr. Coto pointed to current trends to move from strict carbon financing to a broader concept of climate financing, which includes the NAMAs as an opportunity to assist countries in enabling mitigation activities, both at the policy as well as the project/programme level. Carbon financeis a new branch of environmental finance, which explores the financial implications of living in a carbon-constrained world, in which emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases(GHGs) carry a price. In his report, Dr. Coto noted that it is clear that the country has enacted a series of visions, policies and action plans that can contribute significantly to prepare Jamaica for climate financing opportunities. He argued that from the climate mitigation perspective, renewable energy interventions seem to be very cost effective in Jamaica, and associated climate financing could be attracted to assist in removing some of the perceived gaps associated with the regulatory challenges as well as in mobilising financing and guarantees for private sector participation. “It is becoming clear that the paths for most of the identified and discussed potentials for emission reductions in Jamaica lie within the boundaries of the NAMA mechanisms under discussion in the UNFCCC as a vehicle for climate financing,” the report reads. The report recommends that the country needs to engage in strengthening its capabilities to understand the depth of new climate financing opportunities and risks, assess if the emerging mechanisms of climate financing may be attractive to supplement and scale up on-going activities, and from there pursue opportunities that are cost effective and with ample sustainable development benefits for the country.
More than $2 million is now in the hands of small business thanksto the Small Business Financing/Loan Guarantee Program. The loans have created or maintained jobs for more than 135 NovaScotians in 26 businesses. The program is a partnership betweenNova Scotia Economic Development, Credit Union Central of NovaScotia, on behalf of Nova Scotia credit unions, and the NovaScotia Co-operative Council. “This enthusiastic response demonstrates very clearly that theprogram is meeting a need in the small business sector,” saidEconomic Development Minister Ernest Fage. “These modest loansmake a tremendous difference in the life of small businesses andthe communities they serve.” Last spring, the province committed $6 million in loan guaranteesover three years to help meet the financing needs of smallbusiness. The credit union sector has placed an additional $2million in funding to cap the program at $8 million. The programis administered by the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council and loansare approved locally by regional lending committees. “When we promoted this partnership with the province, we wereconvinced of both the need and our capacity to deliver,” saidMarinus Van de Sande, president of the Nova ScotiaCo-operative Council. “We are thrilled with the progress to date,and particularly with the economic and employment impact thatthis program is having on rural communities. This initiative isagain evidence that the co-operative sector is an important partof the overall economic solution for Nova Scotia. As a sector, weare fully committed to not only the success of this program, butto growing and expanding the program in the future.” Credit unions have identified the small business market as anopportunity to participate in community economic development. “This loan has opened a lot of doors for us,” said Glenn Martin,co-owner of Freize and Roy Enterprises, Inc., the oldestcontinuous operating general store in Atlantic Canada, located inMaitland, Hants Co. “We will be offering many new product linesand increasing our staff threefold.” “Credit unions consider small business as a vital and growingsegment of our business,” said Bernie O’Neil, president and CEOof Credit Union Central of Nova Scotia. “This program enhancescredit unions’ ability to provide loans to businesses that maynot otherwise be able to receive financing.” The credit unions issue the loan and monitor compliance underthis program. Loans up to $150,000 are available. The provinceguarantees up to 75 per cent of the loan; credit unions areresponsible for the remaining 25 per cent. The province is alsoproviding $50,000 annually to cover operating costs for thethree-year pilot program. “I like the results this program is getting,” said Mr. Fage.”We’re working with communities and building a more prosperousNova Scotia.” Small business owners are encouraged to approach their localcredit union to get more information on the Small BusinessFinancing/Loan Guarantee Program.
HALIFAX – A fall storm packing winds that gusted to almost 130 kilometres an hour closed schools, shut down ferry services and knocked out power throughout the Maritimes early Thursday.“The Maritimes are closed today. Call again later,” one Twitter user joked after thousands of people in Nova Scotia, P.E.I. and New Brunswick awoke to darkness when the powerful winds blew through the region overnight and into the morning.“It was very quick moving, so it crossed over Nova Scotia and into the Gulf of St. Lawrence in a short time frame,” said Ian Hubbard, a meteorologist with Environment Canada.“It was very intense in terms of its impacts in a short time.”Nova Scotia appeared to be the hardest hit, with more than 24,000 customers without power in outages that spanned much of the province from Bridgewater to northern Cape Breton, which saw the highest wind gusts — 128 km/h — in Grand Etang.By 11 a.m., there were about 200 outages affecting 14,000 customers.In Halifax, the winds temporarily closed the MacKay Bridge to high-sided vehicles and became the butt of a few Twitter jokes, with one man referencing a previous storm, “The surprise hurricane this morning is delightful. Didn’t see this Juan coming.”Several schools in Cape Breton as well as the Nova Scotia Community College in Dartmouth were forced to close for the day due to power outages.P.E.I. was also hit by raging winds that cut off power to about 4,300 customers in dozens of communities early Thursday, closed or delayed the opening of some schools and restricted travel by high-sided vehicles on the Confederation Bridge.Hubbard said wind gusts reached 102 km/h in Charlottetown.New Brunswick also saw a school closed due to a power outage, with NB Power reporting about 1,300 customers in the southern part of the province without power early Thursday. Most of those outages had been restored by midday.The province’s Green party leader, David Coon, used the blustery storm for a political jab, tweeting “Winds of change blowing this morning.”The storm also brought heavy rain to parts of Nova Scotia, which saw 54.9 millimetres of rain in Baccaro Point — almost half of that falling in one hour.Hubbard said the storm is moving north toward Newfoundland and Labrador, which could see wind gusts of 100 km/h and some rain.

APTN National NewsIn Halifax, Aboriginal entrepreneurs took part in a unique business seminar this week.A Mi’kmaq motivational speaker was teaching them to use mind power to achieve success.APTN National News reporter Tim Fontaine has this story.
By Maike EikelmannAPTN National NewsThe First Nations Chief of police made a plea for a toll free number for women who are victims of violence to the special parliamentary committee looking into the issue of violence against Indigenous women.John W. Syrette made the plea Thursday at the committee’s weekly meeting.The data is alarming. According to Statistics Canada the average assaults against Aboriginal women are seven times higher than the national average.And information collected by the Native Women’s Association of Canada shows that more than 600 aboriginal women have either disappeared or have been murdered in the past several decades.Under pressure from NWAC and the Assembly of First Nations, Prime Minister Stephen Harper struck the committee to listen to recommendations from witnesses that deal with the problem in their everyday life.But so far, the Conservative dominated committee has resisted calls from witnesses to call for a national public inquiry.On Thursday committee members heard from Syrette who told them that often there is no officer available for women that want to address the police in an Aboriginal community when they were victims of violence. “This creates a sense of no law, no security and no safety.” Said Syrette.Syrette told the members that a simple toll-free number for all women that were victims of violence would help. “However, many women don’t call us after the first time. The estimation is that some women have 30 incidents of violence before they come to us.” said the President.Moreover he said that especially in northern Canada there are still aboriginal communities where violence against women is accepted. “There is still a dramatic reality in the north” said Constable John C Domm who also testified.Domm added that the Association wants to change this kind of thinking and build a stronger relationship to the indigenous people in each community and to other associations that fight against violence. The “I am a kind man” program, for instance, encourages men to a positive behavior and explains that violence is unusual and unaccepted.“People having jobs and a strong economy in their community supports a kind behavior and as a result there are less incidents of violence.” Said Domm.Furthermore the two officers told the committee that building more shelters in the north, would be a significant help for the women.NDP MP Niki Ashton wants to move on with her motion of a national action plan as recommended by James Anaya. The two witnesses support the idea of the UN.Afterwards, Cree NDP MP Romeo Saganash asked for the number one priority of the two witnesses.“We are completely underfunded.” answered Syrette. ”We would need more funding so that we can allocate at least one responsible officer in each community.”firstname.lastname@example.org
Somasundaram’s own researches reveal that 79 percent of the children in the districts of Kilinochchi, Vavuniya, Mullaitivu and Mannar were exposed to armed combat; 58 percent had seen bombing; 40 percent experienced artillery and mortar shelling; 30 percent had experienced attacks on their home; 40 percent had seen people being killed; and 77 percent had gone through multiple displacement. The thirty year war in Sri Lanka’s Northern Province has had a severe psychological effect on the children there, says Dr. Daya Somasundaram, Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Jaffna, The New Indian Express reported.In his Anandarajan Memorial Oration delivered at Jaffna recently, Somasundaram quotes a 2009 study by T.Ebert, M.Schauer and others to say that 57 percent of North’s children had a “functioning disorder” and 29 percent were “full” cases of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Some of the symptoms of functioning disorder are fright, anxiety, a feeling of disconnect and depression. Among symptoms of PTSD are migraine, epilepsy, stomach ulcer, and chronic fatigue. Describing the effects of such a traumatic background on the mental make up of kids, Somasundaran says: “The hopes, trust, and feelings of security that children need to develop normally, would have been destroyed, causing permanent scarring at an impressionable age.”A study of medical students from the districts of the Wanni revealed that 63 percent had witnessed the unnatural death of a friend or a family member; 67 percent had escaped from the jaws of death; 43 percent had witnessed killings of strangers; and 80 percent had been in the midst of armed combat. Parents too had been disturbing the minds of the young for 30 years by feeding them with horror stories of war, deprivation and right abuses. Family elders and school teachers continue to brutalize kids by relying on corporeal punishment to secure compliance.With traditional control systems collapsing after the war, child abuse has gone up in Jaffna district from 32 to 99 between 2007 and 2014. In the Northern Province as a whole, in 2013, 19 percent were suffering from mental disorders and 17 percent were victims of alcohol and drugs abuse, Somasundaram says.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram On Tuesday, Dora Bakoyannis, a conservative former foreign minister and leader of the centrist party Democratic Alliance, put an end to days of feverish political speculation over the mystery transfer of one million euros abroad last year by saying that her husband, an entrepreneur, had used the sum to purchase of a ship. In comments to reporters outside Parliament, Bakoyannis described the media frenzy over a simple business transaction by a non-politician as “an unbelievable farce.” Bakoyannis said she was questioned by the vice president of Parliament, Vangelis Argyris, about a payment made to a London bank in March last year, and explained that the money had been related to an investment by her husband, Isidoros Kouvelos, the owner of a shipping firm. Bakoyannis said that her husband’s money came from stocks on the New York exchange which were liquidated through a Greek bank and used to buy a ship in London. Bakoyannis said she too had believed the media hype and had been among those demanding that the name of the person be made public. The former minister added that she believed an attempt was being made to “cover up politicians that had really transferred their money to Swiss bank accounts to save it from Greece.” The furor began last Wednesday when the head of the country’s anti money-laundering agency claimed that an unidentified MP had removed one million euros in savings out of the country last spring even as authorities were appealing to Greek citizens not to panic in a bid to avert a bank run.

“Make it happen”.That was the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, and for those attending the Greek Australian Women’s network event last week, it encapsulated both the stagnating state of gender equality and the hope that change will come. Seven highly influential women from the Greek Australian community came together to take part in the discussion ‘Girls and Education’ at the Food For Though Network’s event on Sunday.A packed audience of more than 100 women, girls, and the odd man or two sat down to hear of the struggles many have witnessed in the workplace, and the troubling state of violence against women.Giving the keynote speech, parliament’s first female Greek Australian minister, Jenny Mikakos, spoke of the worldwide gender gap in children attending school. “Only 30 per cent of girls worldwide are enrolled in high school,” she says.“More than 60 per cent of people who lack basic reading and writing skills in the poorest nations are women.“As children grow, so does inequality.” She also spoke of her own heartache at the fact her mother wasn’t able to pursue her dreams to become a teacher in the ’60 and ’70s.Life in education and the gender gap was the topic of the panel’s discussion chaired by Alphington Grammar’s principal, Vivianne Nikou.Acclaimed academics Joy Damousi, Georgina Tsolidis, Ann Mitsis and student Maree Skalistis spoke from experience.“Self esteem and self confidence is at the core of the issues of women in education,” Professor Damousi says.“When you look at why it is that a majority of women graduate university but they’re not moving up, it’s one of the potential issues that I think we need to talk about.“It’s one that doesn’t hit the headlines.”One of the most confronting aspects of the discussion came when the panel discussed domestic violence in the Greek community. “Sixty per cent of women didn’t report the last domestic violence incident,” Professor Georgina Tsolidis said. Women in culturally and linguistically diverse communities are starkly more highly represented in those statistics, many silenced thanks to cultural stigmas and entrenched gender roles. “We need to break that cycle of violence,” Ms Mikakos said.It’s been an ongoing issue in our community and one that is getting worse as our community expands due to an increase of Greek migration thanks to the crisis. Settlement issues and tight finances have pushed the rate of new domestic violence up, with the Australian Greek Welfare Society saying their number of cases has increased dramatically over the past four years.Wife of the Greek Ambassador to Australia, Eyvah Dafaranos highlighted the need for members of the community to embrace newly arrived women by offering them sponsorship in their industry to give them more independence in their family life.The panellists also agreed that “women shouldn’t have to choose between career or family”.Entering into an industry that is very male dominated also had the panellists jumping to give advice.Neos Kosmos asked the group if they had any advice to young Greek Australian women entering the workforce. “Don’t be afraid of it (male dominated field), actually embrace it, you’ve got a lot you can bring to that space,” Dr Ann Mitsis said.“You have to be very confident in your dealings with colleagues,” Professor Damousi says.“I’d also strongly advise to cultivate a number of mentors, not just one, male and female, because there will be various aspects of the job that draw on skills which you’ll need to develop that people can help you with.”Founder of the Food for Thought Network Varvara Ioannou also said the best way to succeed in a career is to “stop judging, stay current in your chosen profession, and seek mentors”.
