Delhi model will be replicated in Punjab if AAP wins: Sisodia

first_imgNawanshahr, Jan 12 (PTI) AAP will replicate the Delhi model of development in Punjab in education and health sectors by setting up mohalla clinics and improving the standard of education if voted to power in the assembly polls, its leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today said.Sisodia said quality medical facilities would be provided to people in Punjab through mohalla clinics as has already been done in Delhi.He said if the party forms the government in the state after the assembly polls on February 4, it would work to improve the standard of education in government-run schools and ensure students from poor section of society get enrolled.Addressing a rally in Banga near Nawanshahr, he said to implement those initiatives funds would be made available by ending corruption and increasing revenue earnings of Punjab.The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi has set up mohalla clinics as the first part of a three-tier healthcare model. These mohalla clinics provide immediate consultation and are equipped to conduct tests and initial diagnosis.AAP now claims that it will replicate the same model in Punjab, if the party is voted to power in the state.Sisodia also said a comprehensive policy for development of sports would be formulated to wean the youth away from drugs – an issue that has recently dominated the headlines.The deputy chief minister of Delhi promised to introduce and improve some other initiatives such as enhancing compensation to farmers in cases of loss of crops.”Let February 4, the polling day in Punjab, be a day for opting for a bright future for the state,” he said.advertisementTwo days after he urged the people of Punjab to vote believing they were voting for Arvind Kejriwal as chief minister and later Kejriwal clarifying he would stay put in Delhi, Sisodia said the chief minister would be from Punjab but Kejriwal would ensure all poll promises made by the party are fulfilled.

Man Utd target Dembele will not leave Lyon – Aulas

first_imgLyon president Jean-Michel Aulas insists that forward Moussa Dembele will not leave the club this summer amid reported interest from Manchester United.The 23-year-old forward has been rumoured to have earned Premier League interest this summer after scoring 23 goals in all competitions for the Ligue 1 outfit last season.But, having already sold Nabil Fekir to Real Betis, Tanguy Ndombele to Tottenham and Ferland Mendy to Real Madrid, Aulas says Lyon will not be selling the club’s star forward as they look to build around the former Celtic striker.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? “Moussa Dembele will not leave. The team was made for him. We recruited according to him,” Aulas said according to Le Parisien.”He becomes the number one striker, which he was not totally last season. It is not a question of money, it is a question of ambition.”He added: “Moussa is part of the project just like  [sporting director] Juninho or others. We want him to succeed and to reach the France team while playing for Lyon. “We have a great deal of confidence in his capabilities and potential.”Dembele has yet to earn his first senior cap for France having featured prominently for his country at the youth level.Originally a Paris Saint-Germain player as a youth, Dembele moved to Fulham in 2012 at age 16 before making his professional debut a year later.He scored 19 goals in 64 appearances for the Craven Cottage outfit before heading to Celtic in 2016, where he became a fixture of two title-winning teams.The striker signed for Lyon on a five-year contract in 2018 for a fee of €22 million (£19.m/$24.7m).Lyon will begin the new campaign under new manager Sylvinho, who takes over from Bruno Genesio.The French club will also have a number of new faces in the squad, including Thiago Mendes, Joachim Andersen, Youssouf Kone and Jean Lucas.Lyon, who finished third in Ligue 1 last season, open their campaign on Friday with a clash against Monaco.last_img read more

Dilip Ghosh courts controversy after saying Vidyasagar wrote ‘Sahaj Path’

first_imgKolkata: The ignorance of BJP leaders about Bengal continues to come to the forefront as the party’s state president Dilip Ghosh said Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar had written Sahaj Path.BJP national president Amit Shah, while addressing an election rally some days ago, had said Rabindranath Tagore was born in Santiniketan. The latest statement of Ghosh has come as a shock to the people of Bengal. Sahaj Path was written by Tagore for children. Vidyasagar had written Barna Parichay to introduce Bengali alphabets to children. He wrote several books for children which include Kathamala, Botrish Singhasan, Betal Panchabingsati along with a Sanskrit grammar book called Byakaran Kaumodi. “This is the culture of BJP. They do not know Bengal and its rich heritage and speak without sense,” said Partha Chatterjee, Trinamool Congress secretary general. He further added: “The way BJP workers desecrated Vidyasagar’s bust may not have ashamed them, but it has made all of us bow our heads in shame. They will only destroy our history and culture.”last_img read more

Ban warns of costs of inaction on climate change

“The more we delay, the more we will pay – in lost opportunities, resources and lives,” Mr. Ban told reporters today.The Copenhagen Accord reached at last December’s UN conference in the Danish capital aims to jump-start immediate action on climate change and guide negotiations on long-term action, scaling up support for developing nations for mitigation and adaptation to reach 100 billion dollars per year by 2020, in addition to 30 billion dollars until 2012.The Secretary-General’s Advisory Group on Climate Change Financing, established in February, is seeking to identify “economically sound” and “politically viable” sources of longer-term financing, Mr. Ban said today.“Climate financing is an investment in a safer, cleaner, more prosperous future for us all,” he said, stressing that “delivering on these pledges is essential.”The Secretary-General attended last evening’s session of the body’s two-day meeting in New York, which he characterized as “very stimulating.”The Group is expected to submit its final report to Mr. Ban before the next conference of parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Cancun, Mexico, later this year.Its co-chairs, Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi and Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, told journalists that discussions are moving forward.Mr. Zenawi voiced confidence that the Group will be able to submit a “very robust” report to the Secretary-General by the end of October.For his part, Mr. Stoltenberg, who replaced former United Kingdom leader Gordon Brown last month as co-chair, noted that there are numerous sources of resources for climate change mitigation and adaptation.“So the problem is not the number of possible sources of financing,” he said, adding that the Group’s main task is translating these potential resources into reality.The New York gathering, which wraps up today, is the body’s second meeting. It met in London in March, and is scheduled to hold its next meeting in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa. Its 21 principals include philanthropist George Soros, French Minister of the Economy, Industry and Employment Christine Lagarde, and prominent British academic Nicholas Stern. 13 July 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today warned of the risks posed by inaction on climate change, as the high-level group he set up earlier this year to mobilize financing to help developing countries combat global warming reported that they have made progress on the issue. read more

Sri Lankan pilot flew with two women in cockpit

“The women were in seat nos. 6C and 9E. They spent whole travel time inside the cockpit. Even though passengers repeatedly requested them to come out, they did not,” he said. In a blatant disregard for aviation rules and ignoring passenger safety, the pilot of a Sri Lankan Airlines flight (No. UL 172) bound for Colombo from Bengaluru International Airport, allegedly allowed two women to accompany him in the cockpit for the entire length of the journey.Passengers on the flight, which took off from BIA around 9.15 pm on Friday, claimed that the two women travelled in the cockpit all through. The passengers, who were worried about their safety, protested. According to Udayashankar, the women, who were carrying bottles of beer in their hand, claimed that the pilot was their cousin.“The flight landed around 11.25 pm and passengers are still at the airport protesting. We will lodge a complaint with the airline authorities on Saturday,” he told Deccan Chronicle from Colombo. (Deccan Chronicle) According to Gowtham Udayashankar, a Bengaluru resident, who travelled by business class on the flight, the two women got into the cockpit immediately after the flight took off from BIA. read more

Via Rail CEO says demographics makes it right time to boost passenger

Via Rail CEO says demographics makes it right time to boost passenger service TORONTO – The chief executive of Via Rail says it’s a good time to expand passenger rail service in Canada by building dedicated tracks and increasing the frequency of its trains.“There is a renaissance and an emergence of a train culture in Canada,” Yves Desjardins-Siciliano said at a luncheon held in Toronto by the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships.Demographic factors such as the pro-environment values of millennials, the growing number of seniors with mobility issues and an influx of immigrants from countries where train culture is prevalent make it a good time to boost passenger service, Desjardins-Siciliano said Thursday.“Young Canadians — millennials — have a green heart,” he said.Via Rail hopes to raise $3 billion from private investors in order to build dedicated passenger tracks between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.The company says the long-standing practice of sharing infrastructure with freight trains has hurt its ridership, which has been eroding in recent years.The number of Via Rail passengers declined to 3.8 million last year from 4.1 million in 2010, according to the company’s financial statements that included a $317.1-million operating loss last year.Desjardins-Siciliano says that by doubling the frequency of service along that route, Via could triple its ridership.“If you add frequency, you add availability and convenience — and you automatically add ridership,” Desjardins-Siciliano said. “But if we don’t own the tracks we can’t add frequency as we wish.”Higher ridership would boost the line’s profitability and could help subsidize other, less profitable routes, ultimately reducing the extent to which taxpayers foot the railway’s bills, he said.But Desjardins-Siciliano said he doesn’t foresee the company going private.“I think Via Rail will always be a public service company, because we’re servicing Canada, and you’ll always have routes that can’t sustain themselves,” he said during an interview following his speech.Desjardins-Siciliano also brushed off the notion of Via Rail implementing high-speed rail lines, such as those in Europe and Japan, calling the development of such lines uneconomical.High-frequency service, such as the kind currently being proposed by Via Rail, delivers “70 per cent of the benefit for 30 per cent of the cost” of high-speed service, he said.“It’s a more profitable model.”The Ontario government is planning to build a high-speed rail line connecting Windsor, London, Kitchener-Waterloo and Toronto.The province intends to invest $29 billion into transit and transportation infrastructure projects over the next decade.Follow @alexposadzki on Twitter. by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 4, 2015 12:29 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 4, 2015 at 5:33 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Jeep is bringing the Gladiator to Europe for 2020

first_img 1 2020 Jeep Gladiator gets the Mopar treatment Comment Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 Jeep Wrangler review: First-place performance Enlarge ImageThe Gladiator is awesome, even if it’s not ideally sized for European roads. Andrew Krok/Roadshow It’s kind of tough to imagine a less European vehicle than the Jeep Gladiator, given its size and aggressive styling. However, the folks at Jeep seem to disagree, and the brand will launch the Gladiator in Europe starting sometime in the first half of 2020, according to a report published Friday by Autocar UK.Bringing the Gladiator to Europe seems like kind of a weird move for FCA, but actually, Jeep has been thriving on the continent. Its sales have been climbing rapidly, with the pint-size Renegade and slightly-less-pint-size Compass leading that charge.For those who haven’t been paying attention, the Gladiator is the long-awaited truck version of the Wrangler. Like with the Wrangler, you can remove all kinds of body panels and doors. It’s V6-powered, also like the Wrangler, and according to our resident Jeep expert Emme Hall, “It looks awesome!”According to European Jeep boss Jeff Hines, the brand doesn’t expect to move Gladiators by the bushel over there, but apparently there is enough interest if FCA is going to go to the trouble of homologating it for sale in the EU. 26 Photos 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff 49 Photos Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness Share your voice Trucks Car Industry 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch 69 Photos Comments 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model 38 Photos 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  52 Photos Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. Share your voice 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Coloradocenter_img Jeep 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto.

Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. 3 18 Photos More From Roadshow Tags 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV 71 Photos 12 Photos More From Roadshow 68 Photos Car Industry Tagslast_img read more

Tyeb Mehta sells for 13 million

first_imgThe South Asian Modern + Contemporary sale on September 12 at Christies Asian Art Week, New York – featured a rare masterpiece by Tyeb Mehta (1925–2009), titled ‘Diagonal XV’ (estimated: $1,500,000-2,000,000). It sold for $1,392,500.Tyeb Mehta, India’s most distinguished Bohra Muslim was an artist of conviction and integrity.Throughout his career, Tyeb Mehta sought to express the struggles of man as a member of contemporary society. From his early trussed bulls – that underline the plight of the helpless animal in Bombay’s slaughterhouses, to his falling figures hurtling toward a metaphorical abyss and trapped rickshaw pullers who cannot escape the vehicles that have become extensions of themselves – Mehta’s paintings reflect his own disillusionment with the world around him. His unique formal treatment of the canvas only serves to heighten the impact of these images. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIn the late 1960s, following a year-long stay in New York on a Rockefeller III Fund Fellowship in 1968, he abandoned the expressionistic style and thickly applied paint that had characterised his work in the preceding years. Instead, moved by minimalism and the work of artists like Barnett Newman that he encountered in America, he worked to achieve pristine planes of saturated colour, on which not a single brush stroke could be discerned. Apart from their precise construction and conscious two-dimensionality – the most striking element of these new paintings was the diagonal line Mehta often included in their composition which aggressively bisected the painted surface. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveTyeb described his diagonal series as an exercise in geometry and human figuration. “I was trying to work out a way to define space…to activate a canvas. If I divided it horizontally and vertically, I merely created a preponderance of smaller squares or rectangles. But if I cut the canvas with a diagonal, I immediately created a certain dislocation. I was able to distribute and divide a figure within the two created triangles and automatically disjoint and fragment it. Yet the diagonal maintained an almost centrifugal unity…in fact became a pictorial element in itself.”Paintings from the diagonal series were the first of Mehta’s mature style, with an emphasis on form over content, and mark a watershed in his long engagement with figuration. The artist explained, “Painters who are overly concerned with content, burn themselves out. My experience is now transformed into colour and form. When you transpose your ideas into colours and forms, you are making a suggestion. A suggestion is stronger than a direct message.”In a 1976, review of Mehta’s new diagonal series, India’s abstract guru, critic and fellow artist Jagdish Swaminathan said, “What strikes one immediately in these works, is the strictly formal geometrical arrangement, or invocation of space-colour, and the line embodying the figure pulled apart like a doll and put together again – laid flat, defining, so to speak, the iconographic area. What appears at first glance as a formal exercise in relating line to colour on a flat plane suddenly becomes very disturbing. While one was immediately moved by the angst portrayed in his former works, one could immediately reach out and share the unfathomable terror, the unrelieved sadness of man alienated, the present works enter the realm of the mystical; terror, pathos, and sorrow are objective entities, masks, implacable deities, setting up a grotesque tableau.””You enter a world of magic and are enthralled by the elemental dance of the emotions, which freeze and cease to speak the moment you seek to identify yourself with them. What Tyeb has achieved is a double transformation. In his former phase, he has isolated and insulated man’s loneliness, protecting it, so to speak, from the profane. Now he has set it up in its own right, impervious to human touch, yet threatening man’s complaisance, he added.In his present work, the focus is on two fragmented figures at the center beautifully balanced by the diagonal. Their bodies, portrayed as disjointed components, are further divided by a green and orange lightning-bolt diagonal that runs from the upper right to the lower left. The blank expression etched on the single face they share reflects the despondency that results from their daily struggles.last_img read more
