Supreme Court denies report that two judges met Justice Bobde

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court denied on Sunday a media report that said justices RF Nariman and DY Chandrachud met Justice SA Bobde who is heading an in-house committee inquiring into the sexual harassment allegations against Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.A statement from the apex court said “this is wholly incorrect” that the two judges met justice Bobde on Friday evening. The statement, which has been issued from the office of the Supreme Court’s secretary general, said that it is most unfortunate that a leading newspaper chose to state that the two judges met Justice Bobde. Further, the statement said that the in-house committee which is deliberating on the issue concerning the CJI deliberates on its own without any input from any other judge of the apex court. A report in a leading newspaper Sunday stated that justices Nariman and Chandrachud had met Justice Bobde and had expressed their view that the three-member committee should not go ahead with the proceeding ex parte. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange frameworkThe former woman employee of the apex court, who has levelled the sexual harassment allegations, has opted herself out from participating in the enquiry raising several grievances, including the denial of permission to have her lawyer during the proceedings. The newspaper has stated that justices Nariman and Chandrachud had suggested for the appointment of an advocate as an amicus curiae for assisting the in-house committee. Besides Justice Bobde, other members in the committee are two women judges of the apex court – justices Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee.last_img read more

BC Premier derails bid to forge national energy strategy

HALIFAX — British Columbia Premier Christy Clark said Friday that she couldn’t sign onto a national energy strategy before resolving a dispute over the Northern Gateway pipeline.Clark stepped out of meetings at the Council of the Federation in Halifax to make the announcement as premiers tried to cobble together a pan-Canadian strategy on energy.She said she wouldn’t endorse a deal before discussions take place with Ottawa and Alberta over how B.C. would be compensated for allowing the $6-billion pipeline to transit through the province.“British Columbia will not be participating in any of those discussions until after we’ve seen some progress that our requirements for the shipment of heavy oil will be met,” she told a hastily called news conference.“It’s not a national energy strategy if B.C. hasn’t signed on.”Clark said she and Alberta Premier Alison Redford had a “very frank discussion” about it Friday morning, but didn’t reveal details or if they planned on holding further talks on the matter.At the closing news conference of the premiers meeting, Redford said the lack of unanimity on a national energy plan wasn’t something that concerned her.“I don’t think we should lament the fact that we’re not all the way there yet,” Redford said.“I think we should actually celebrate a tremendous amount of success in that we had almost every premier in the country talking about the fact that we need to come together and talk about how to grow Canada’s energy economy.”Clark has said she decided to ask for an unspecified share of benefits from the Northern Gateway after doing analysis on the development, which will move bitumen from Alberta to the B.C. coast for shipment to Asia.Her government has released five conditions she says need to be met before she can move forward with plans for the pipeline. In addition to the demand for a greater portion of the economic benefits, they include the completion of an environmental review now underway, assurances that the “best” responses will be available for potential spills on land and at sea and recognition of aboriginal rights on the land.Clark repeated her position that the province bears too much risk from oil spills at sea or on land, while receiving only eight per cent in tax benefits.She added another wrinkle to the feud when she called on Ottawa on Wednesday to sit down with her and Redford to hash out the issue. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird weighed in on the dispute, questioning Clark’s stance and reiterating the federal government’s support for the project.Redford has flatly dismissed Clark’s position as one that would “fundamentally change Confederation” because it would mean new negotiations for projects throughout the country.According to research in an application filed by Enbridge, 8.2% of the Northern Gateway’s projected $81 billion tax revenue would flow to B.C. over a 30-year period. That equates to $6.7 billion for B.C., while Ottawa is expected to receive $36 billion and Alberta would earn $32 billion.Saskatchewan is expected to top the remainder of the provinces in terms of tax benefit, receiving about $4 billion.Enbridge’s proposed 1,177-kilometre twin line would carry heavy oil from Alberta across a vast swath of pristine B.C. wilderness and First Nations territory to a port at Kitimat, B.C., for shipment to Asia.Last week, the company announced it will shore up another $500 million in safety improvements.Next year’s Council of the Federation meeting will be held in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont. read more

FlipBooKit mechanical flip book art soliciting orders on Kickstarter

first_imgAt the 2012 Maker Faire a few artists and inventors showed off their idea for a retro mechanical flipbook. The device is based on art projects the group has done since 2011 that harken back to a time before high-resolution LCD panels and HD video. The art pieces themselves sell for upwards of $12,000 in galleries, but now there is a Kickstarter going on to make a simpler version of the contraption available to consumers.The FlipBooKit, as it’s being called, will have 30 flipbook panels and a manual hand crank. This should be enough for a short animation of your choosing. It comes with that iconic trotting horse animation, a reference to the first moving picture. The kit will also come with instruction on printing your own panels with a standard printer to create custom masterpiece.The art project’s FlipBooKit uses electric motors that are carefully timed so that multiple flipbooks can interact with each other, but in the interests of cost the regular FlipBooKit moved to a hand crank. For $38 you can get your own FlipBooKit delivered in time for the holidays, but this level is in limited supply. An identical $48 package is available after that pledge level is full.If cranking this bit of retro art isn’t up your alley, $66 gets you a version of the FlipBooKit with a DC motor and the necessary parts to rig it up to play your animation. A $98 package comes with a steampunk-inspired casing for your flipbook. If you want to go all out, you can get a package of three FlipBooKits with motors and Arduino controllers. This one is $298, but it’s really just for the artistic types out there. You can spend even more if you want some custom made FlipBooKit art.The Kickstarter was only seeking $5,000 to get the project going, and it’s already more than quadrupled that. You’re definitely getting charged if you sign up, and hopefully you’ll see this device in your mailbox this December.via Kickstarterlast_img read more

Building Industry Leader gives San Diego an F grade for new housing

When it comes to building new homes and apartments, one industry expert said the region should receive an “F” grade.Borre Winckel, the President and CEO of the Building Industry Association of San Diego County said it’s clear that we are not even close to meeting the region’s goals for housing production.According to new numbers released by the California Department of Housing and Community Development and the San Diego Association of Governments, which is also known as SANDAG, the City of San Diego and the San Diego region issued fewer building permits in 2018 than the year before. The decline continues the trend of slowing permit activity.To meet the ten year housing production goal of 161,980 units between 2010 and 2020, the region would need to build 14,725 new units each year.Winckel said at this point, we have only been building 7,700 new units annually which is equal to about half of the regional goal. “We have completely blown the goal. We’ve only built 43% of the housing units that we were supposed to deliver by this time,” Winckel said.The head of the building industry group blames state regulations, including new environmental rules, for driving up the costs of construction and deterring new building and development. “What we need is a massive deregulation effort statewide.” As one example of what he calls costly regulation, Winckel pointed to a new state mandate in 2020 for solar panels on new construction. He cited another rule that is supposed to spur development near public transit corridors. Winckel said a requirement called the VMT, vehicle miles traveled, adds more fees and costs for developers who don’t build in areas close to public transit.Winckel said he is certain the current housing deficit is only going to get worse. He said the biggest losers will be middle income households, because excessive regulations and fees make it too expensive to build housing for middle class families. “Economically, it doesn’t pencil out to produce middle income housing because these regulations cost too much. The next target wants to have 19,000 housing units built every year though 2019. It’s impossible,” Winckel said. Sasha Foo, last_img read more

Native tribes in Ketchikan tell Interior department to keep landtrust program

first_imgThe consultation held in the Ketchikan Public Library on August, 3, 2018. (Photo by Liam Niemeyer, KRBD – Ketchikan)In 2014, Alaska tribes won a lawsuit against the Department of the Interior (DOI) for the right to put land into trusts, expelling the “Alaska exception”.Listen nowLand into trust is a process in which tribal organizations can request specific land be exempted from taxation and local zoning laws, and protected from proceedings such as eminent domain or foreclosure. It essentially keeps the land in tribal ownership permanently.DOI officials are talking with tribes across the state in a series of consultations this summer to reconsider land-trust rules in Alaska. Matthew Newman, an attorney with the Native American Rights Fund representing the Village of Saxman, was one of many people who attended the latest consultation Friday afternoon at the Ketchikan Public Library.Newman said DOI has not been clear with the purpose of these consultations.“They’ve given us no real indication of what they’re doing. And what I mean by that is that there was no prompting or impetus or comment period,” Newman said. “We just received letters on July 2nd that just showed up that said we’re reconsidering the program,” Newman said. “The overwhelming message delivered to the Department of the Interior by tribal leaders was one of frustration.”Newman said many tribal leaders at the consultation perceive these meetings as an attack on their rights that they won just recently.Only the Craig Tribal Association has been able to put land into trust since the 2014 decision. The association put about one acre containing the city’s town hall and offices into trust in early 2017.Craig Tribal Association President Clinton Cook Sr. said one of the reasons land-trust rules should remain in place is their association has proven it can work in Alaska.“We knew there was going to be hurdles to come across. We overcame that hurdle, we’re very, very proud of that accomplishment and we look forward to see other tribes in Alaska to put lands into trusts,” Cook said.Jacqueline Pata from Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska also attended the Ketchikan consultation. She says like many tribes in the Lower 48 who have been able to put land into trust for decades, tribes in Alaska and Southeast simply want to protect their land for the future.“These are our lands, we don’t want to lose them from alienation in any form. We want them to be identified as tribal lands. And as we move forward in the future, they’ll be protected for future generations,” Pata said.Pata said she hopes DOI will take this feedback and maintain the land-trust program throughout Alaska. Until that decision, she says it is a waiting game to see what DOI does with this feedback.The next DOI consultation on the land-trust program in Alaska will be held in Anchorage in late October.last_img read more

Trump Administration To Declare Opioid Crisis A Public Health Emergency

first_imgSpencer Platt/Getty ImagesHeroin users prepare the drug in New York City’s South Bronx neighborhood.The Trump administration will declare a public health emergency to deal with the opioid epidemic Thursday, freeing up some resources for treatment. More than 140 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.President Trump is also expected to direct agency and department heads to use all appropriate emergency authorities to reduce number of deaths caused by the opioid crisis, according to senior administration officials.The move stops short of declaring the crisis a national emergency, which Trump first said he’d declare in August. He repeated that pledge this week. The White House said it determined that declaring a public health emergency was more appropriate than a national emergency.MORE: What Will Opioid Declaration Mean For Treatment Efforts In Houston?Some in the field, like Dr. Andrew Kolodny, say it’s been frustrating to wait for the administration to respond to a crisis Trump first acknowledged on the campaign trail when he was running for president.Kolodny, who is co-director of the Opioid Policy Research Collaboration at Brandeis University’s Heller School, says he expected immediate action after the president’s August statement. “If you’re calling something an emergency, you expect people to act urgently and respond as if it’s an emergency.”After taking office, President Trump appointed a commission to study the opioid crisis, headed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. In an interim report, the commission called on the president to declare a national emergency. Doing so would free up funds for treatment, ensure wider access to the anti-overdose drug naloxone and improve monitoring of opioid prescriptions to prevent abuse.In August, days before the president promised to declare a national emergency, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said he didn’t think one was necessary. Flash forward two months, though, and Tom Price is gone.Dr. Keith Humphreys, a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University and a former adviser in the Obama administration says that Price was not a friend to addiction treatment programs. “When he was a congressman, he opposed the parity law which required insurers to cover addiction treatment,” Humphreys says. “He was very skeptical of methadone maintenance which is a very good treatment for heroin addiction. So having him out of the way is a potential plus.”In a policy change this week, the director of the Food and Drug Administration told a congressional committee the agency will begin working to promote medication assisted treatment—using methadone, buprenorphine or naltrexone to help addicts in recovery. That’s significant because some states currently won’t pay for some of those treatments. Advocates will be listening for what, if anything, the president says about that.Humphreys says he’s interested in what measures the president proposes as part of an emergency declaration. For example, he could announce he’ll use his authority to negotiate cheaper prices for drugs. Humphreys says the president could say, “In an emergency, we’re going to use our power as a big purchaser to say to naloxone manufacturers that … we want 40 percent off or whatever, to use that leverage which currently we can’t do legally.”But, when the president speaks on the opioid epidemic Thursday, advocates say the key issue will be what he says about funding. Congress is currently spending $500 million a year on addiction treatment programs. Dr. Kolodny says to help the more that 27 million Americans abusing opioids, much more is needed. He puts the price tag at $6 billion each year. “You want that opioid addicted individual to be able to access effective outpatient treatment more easily than they can get pills, heroin, or fentanyl,” Dr. Kolody says.Kolodny criticizes the Obama administration for being slow to acknowledge opioids, a crisis that he says that began in 1996 and which the CDC declared an epidemic in 2011. President Obama’s health secretary Kathleen Sebelius agrees. “Did we do enough? Probably not,” Sebelius says. “Recognizing how widespread this was, what factors were contributing to it, would have been helpful a number of years ago.” And she says, it might have prevented many overdose deaths.Sebelius notes that the Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid greatly increased coverage for addiction treatment. If President Trump is serious about tackling opioids, she says his first step should be to stop fighting to repeal Obamacare.Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.

1st Muslim in Congress Wants to Take on Trump in Court

first_imgBy KYLE POTTER, Associated PressST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress and a top official with the Democratic National Committee, filed to run for Minnesota attorney general Tuesday, saying he wanted to join the legal fight against President Donald Trump.A sixth-term lawmaker widely regarded as among the most liberal members of Congress, Ellison had been eyeing statewide office in Minnesota for months. He considered running for the Senate seat vacated by former Sen. Al Franken before backing Gov. Mark Dayton’s appointee, Sen. Tina Smith. And he weighed a run for attorney general until Lori Swanson, the current officeholder, decided to run for a fourth term this winter.In this Dec. 2, 2016 file photo, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., listens during a forum on the future of the Democratic Party, in Denver. Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, filed papers Tuesday, June 5, 2018, to run for Minnesota attorney general. Ellison, also the vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee, filed just hours ahead of a deadline. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski, File)But Swanson changed course Monday, launching a late bid for Minnesota governor. Ellison and others pounced, filing for the office on Tuesday.“It was attorneys general who led the fight against the Muslim ban,” Ellison said after filing to run for the office, referring to Trump’s ban on travel to the U.S. by visitors from several Muslim-majority countries. “I want to be a part of that fight.”Among the Democrats rushing to succeed Ellison in his liberal Minneapolis congressional district was state Rep. Ilhan Omar, the first Somali-American Muslim elected to a state legislature in the U.S.Ellison’s first statewide campaign will likely be far more challenging than his congressional runs. He represents a solidly Democratic district in Minneapolis and some surrounding suburbs and has never faced a major challenger since first being elected to Congress in 2006. But outside the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota is more conservative and could be less receptive to his confrontational approach.Ellison co-chaired the House’s Congressional Progressive Caucus from 2011 to 2017 and recently assumed the charge of pushing to expand a Medicare-for-all, single-payer health care program. He has also served as deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee since 2017, after losing the race for its top job to Tom Perez. Both Ellison and the DNC said he would keep his spot as deputy chairman.By entering the race for attorney general, Ellison is taking on the state party’s endorsed candidate as well as longtime Democratic state lawmaker and former Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch. All filed for the office Tuesday.Several Minnesota Democrats immediately joined the race for the U.S. House seat Ellison holds. State Sen. Patricia Torres Ray, a prominent voice on Hispanic issues, filed less than an hour after Ellison filed for attorney general. Former state House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher also jumped in.Omar was elected in 2016 and said at the time that she considered her election to be a “counter-narrative” to then-President-elect Trump.Omar immigrated to the U.S. when she was 12, after her family fled war-torn Somalia and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp. Her story is a familiar one in Minnesota, which is home to the largest Somali population in the United States. While other Somali-Americans have been elected to school boards and the Minneapolis City Council, she was the first to be elected as state lawmaker.Ellison said he wouldn’t endorse a successor.last_img read more

Evading Autoruns or dont rely solely on Autoruns for security

first_imgEvading Autoruns, or: don’t rely solely on Autoruns for security by Martin Brinkmann on November 05, 2017 in Windows – 15 commentsAutoruns is a popular program for Windows to analyze all the different files, programs, and other items that run on system startup.It is probably the most used tool for that purpose, and includes lots of nice to have features such as scanning files on Virustotal, hiding Microsoft entries, or management of autorun files to disable or delete items directly from within the program.Evading Autoruns is a research paper by Kyle Hanslovan and Chris Bisnett from Huntress that reveals multiple evasion methods that malicious users could make use of to hide activities on the computer or in a network.The researchers reveal multiple methods that attackers may use to hide their activity. Nested commands for instance may be used to execute multiple programs using a single startup item. These commands, e.g. &&, & or || combine one or multiple commands, usually by adding a malicious command after a legitimate command.One of the issues that arises in Autoruns is that many users have configured the program to hide Microsoft entries as they are considered save by many. The problem is that hiding Microsoft entries may hide these command constructs.Other techniques that the security researchers describe are:Shell32.dll IndirectionDLL HijackingSyncAppvPublishingServiceService DLL BugExtension Search Order BugSIP Hijacking.INF ScriptletsThe researchers come to the conclusion that Autoruns is a great tool for enumerating startup programs and files, but that it is not a security tool.They suggest that administrators and users use it to enumerate data, and that they analyze the data the tool gathered using other means. Attackers will use these techniques and more complex ones to evade detection in Autoruns.As far as things are concerned that you may do to make it more difficult for attackers to hide something, the following is helpful:Don’t hide Microsoft and Windows entries in Autoruns. You find the option under Options > Hide Microsoft Entries and Options > Hide Windows entries. This displays more data, but it is important to see it from a security point of view.Enable the “verify code signatures” and “check virustotal.com” options in Options > Scan Options.Review any cmd.exe, pcalua, or SyncAppvPublishingService entries.Go through all entries and look for nested commands (may be easier to use the command line options to enumerate all and use find operations to go through the listing).Now You: how do you enumerate autorun items and vet them?

Chinese man fails breathalyzer test after eating d

first_img Chinese man fails breathalyzer test after eating d … November 08 , 2018 Facebook user Amir Zidane filmed the fruit being unloaded after the protest. Source: BBCAround two tons of durian had to be removed from the cargo hold of a plane in Indonesia after passengers complained about the stench.The fruit, considered to be the world’s smelliest, was taken of a Sriwijaya Air flight, bound for Jakarta from Bengkulu.The passengers demanded that the fruit be removed, with some almost coming to blows with crew members, according to the BBC.”When I entered the plane, I could already smell the scent of durian. I complained to the stewardess, but they told me to just fill up a complaint form,” said Amir Zidane, a passenger onboard the plane who detailed the incident in a Facebook post.Zidane said that crew members assured him the smell would vanish as soon as the plane was in the air, reported BBC.However, he was unsatisfied with the answer and called his fellow passengers against flying in those conditions.”I yelled at the other passengers ‘Who on this plane wants to fly?’. They all chanted back ‘not us!!'”Eventually, they were all asked to leave the plane while the crew unloaded the fruit.The airline later said that it was within its rights to carry the fruit in cargo, despite the smell.”It’s not illegal to carry durian in a flight as long as it is wrapped properly in accordance with flight regulations – carried inside the hold. Many airlines do this,” senior corporate communications manager Retri Maya said in a statement to the Jakarta Post.The durian is a delicacy in much of Asia, but due to its potent stench in certain countries, it’s banned from public transportation, hotels, and even planes.Earlier this year an Australian university library was evacuated amid fears of a major gas leak, but the source of the smell later turned out to be durian fruit.center_img You might also be interested inlast_img read more
