Kolkata: The consulting agency engaged by Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) to do the health study of Sealdah flyover, popularly known as Vidyapati Setu, has stated that the bridge is in need of repair.”The preliminary report has pointed out that the Sealdah flyover is in need of repair. But the condition is not such that it needs immediate work. We have sought a detailed report from the consulting agency, in which they will specify the areas that need to be repaired,” state Urban Development minister Firhad Hakim said. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaHakim has already brought the report to the notice of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. A senior KMDA official said that the detailed report will be submitted in the month of July and the tender will be floated for repair of the bridge. “There are seven other bridges for which we have already engaged a consultant and their health study is going on in full swing,” the official said. The flyover, set up in the late 1970s, is one of the busiest in the city. It may be mentioned that soon after the caving in of Majerhat bridge in September last year, the state government had prepared a list of 15 bridges for structural health audit. The list included Dhakuria bridge, Bijon Setu, Auro- bindo Setu, Chetla bridge, Kalighat Bridge, Durgapur bridge and Sealdah flyover among others.
25 September 2008United Nations agencies today called for better regulation of foods for infants and young children in China in light of the contaminated infant formula crisis, reiterating their insistence that breast milk should be used exclusively for the first six months of life. “Whilst any attempt to deceive the public in the area of food production and marketing is unacceptable, deliberate contamination of foods intended for consumption by vulnerable infants and young children is particularly deplorable,” the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and World Health Organization (WHO) Offices in China said in a joint statement.Melamine-contaminated formula produced by Sanlu and other companies has caused more than 6,000 cases of kidney stones in infants and three deaths across the country.“We are confident that swift and firm actions are being taken by China’s food safety authorities to investigate this incident fully,” the statement said. “We also expect that following the investigation and in the context of the Chinese Government’s increasing attention to food safety, better regulation of foods for infants and young children will be enforced.”Noting that global health authorities agree that breast milk is unquestionably better for infant feeding than any formula, the agencies stressed that no formula contains the perfect combination of proteins, carbohydrates and fats to enhance infant growth and brain development as breast milk does.“No infant formula contains antibodies to protect against infection as breast milk does. No infant formula is as safe to administer as breast milk is. And no infant formula is as affordable to families as breast milk is, providing the perfect nutrition for infants while protecting them from infections,” they said.Ideally, all infants should be fed exclusively with breast milk for the first six months of life, receiving thereafter adequate and safe complementary foods while continuing to breastfeed up to at least the age of two years.Working mothers who cannot breastfeed during working hours can express breast milk and save it in a clean container for feeding the child whilst she is away, they added. Breast milk can be stored safely for up to eight hours at room temperature.
National parliaments are key allies of the United Nations in its efforts to haul the world’s most vulnerable people out of the global economic crisis, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today told an international gathering of lawmakers in New York.“The global recession cannot be an excuse to abandon pledges,” Mr. Ban said at the annual parliamentary hearing at UN Headquarters, an event jointly organized by the world body and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).“On the contrary, there is an urgent need to increase the volume, quality and reliability of aid flows,” he said, stressing that this is “central to a coordinated global recovery plan.”This year’s hearing is slated to focus on highlighting effective responses to the global economic crisis, which Mr. Ban said strikes the poorest the hardest. “They are among those who are most affected yet least responsible.”He told participants that as lawmakers they “take the work that is done in these halls and help make it real on the ground. You translate international standards and agreements into domestic legislation and regulations.”In his address to the forum, Mr. Ban outlined the UN system’s broad and coordinated response to the crisis, bringing together funding and initiatives on the ground to meet the needs of each developing country. He said that his call earlier in the year for a global stimulus – a $1 trillion effort backed by the Group of 20 industrialized nations (G-20) to advance the interests of all nations – was only a beginning.Promoting recovery through “green” growth is another critical plank to leveraging recovery efforts, said Mr. Ban, noting that the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen is just days away.“Copenhagen can be a catalyst for powering green growth,” he said. “We know that investing in green sectors improves chances for recovery and sustainable growth while preserving the environment. Let us continue to work together to invest in green.”The Secretary-General also spotlighted the long-term efforts of the UN High-Level Task Force on the Global Food Security Crisis to slash the number of hungry people around the world; the UN Trade Initiative’s work to counter protectionism and promote transparency in trade finance markets; and the Global Jobs Pact’s initiatives focusing attention of decision-makers on employment and decent work as the foundation for long-term recovery. In addition, “inclusive growth requires inclusive institutions,” he said, referring to the Bretton Woods institutions, established towards the end of the Second World War. “The global frameworks and bodies created generations ago must be made more accountable, more representative and more effective. We must work to expand the voice and participation of developing countries – in decision-making in general.” 19 November 2009National parliaments are key allies of the United Nations in its efforts to haul the world’s most vulnerable people out of the global economic crisis, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today told an international gathering of lawmakers in New York.
MEXICO CITY — The United States negotiating team found itself squeezed at home and abroad during NAFTA talks on Monday, with various actors from Canada, Mexico and within the U.S. pressing it to reconsider demands called unworkable and unworthy of serious bargaining.The Canadian and Mexican governments have refused to produce a counter-proposal at the current round of talks on auto policy and are instead delivering a presentation on the self-inflicted damage they claim it would wreak upon America.Their case was bolstered within the U.S. Senate.At NAFTA talks, Canada delivers a lecture on autos, not a counter-offer, in face of ‘ridiculous’ U.S. proposalThe only thing hanging over Canada’s economy is one five-letter wordA major auto association told a hearing that the current proposal could induce companies to leave this continent and simply pay import tariffs. This was on the same day that 18 U.S. senators sent a letter demanding the administration conduct an economic analysis before making any changes to NAFTA.The U.S. stunned its partners by demanding that car companies quickly transform their supply chains to boost North American content; ensure half of a car’s parts come from the U.S.; use a new, stricter formula for calculating the origins of a car’s components; and do it all within a year.”No vehicle produced today could meet such an onerous standard,” the Senate hearing was told by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.”This proposal is unprecedented and would have significant ramifications on our industry and the U.S. economy, as a whole.”The U.S. negotiating team is urging people to tone down the rhetoric.It apparently views such proposals as a starting point. An American source familiar with the talks pointed to evidence of the U.S. willingness to negotiate in good faith: the very broadly phrased list of American objectives published online last week.In a few cases, that list includes specific numbers — like the demand that Canada relax its duties on online purchases by $780. In the case of automobiles, though, there are no numbers — just a reference to a desire for U.S. content in cars.The source said this is normal in negotiating. But what’s less normal, the source said, is the public rhetoric by the Canadian side, with talk of red-lines and non-starters that will make it harder to advance negotiations.The Canadians adopted a deliberate strategy at this round of proposing nothing on the hardest issues.Instead, they will deliver a presentation and demand details. Along with Mexico, Canada will press the American side for clarity on how the auto proposal would work, with the subtext of that conversation being their belief that the proposal would not, in fact, work at all.One stakeholder advising the Canadian government says the proposal was written in vague prose, was light on specifics and never gave clear indications of how it might be applied.Flavio Volpe of the Auto Parts Manufacturers’ Association cites the examples of windshields and plastic components, which are made of sand, oil, and — going back further — carbon-based life forms that died millions of years ago.“So if I’m a glass-maker, my raw material is sand. How am I going to trace (where) sand (comes from)? … Do you do that on the granule level? Do you do it by bag? Or do you have to send a picture of the beach?” Volpe said.“So I think it’s important we get some technical advice from the experts at (the U.S. Trade Representative) on how exactly we’re going to do that… A lot of plastics are petroleum-based. So what’s the methodology there — are we tracing back to bitumen, are we tracing back to sweet crude?“When you say you’re going back to the base raw materials that’s what you’re talking about. So when did the dinosaurs die? And where did they die? And can we claim ownership of that?”Multiple sources say the Canadians want to press the U.S. to refine its own offer on autos, before making a counter-proposal. Canadian officials have noted the internal U.S. opposition to the American proposal, including from six dozen American lawmakers who wrote a letter last week blasting it and the hearing before the Senate on Monday.The senator who convened the hearing opened it by praising NAFTA.”The positive economic impact of the current agreement is no secret to the people in this room or to the citizens of Texas,” said Sen. John Cornyn.”The data is staggering and the verdict is clear: NAFTA worked as intended.”He pressed a U.S. trade official on some of the proposals. That official, Stephen Vaughn, said he understands industries are concerned and that’s why the U.S. wants to wrap up a deal quickly, with a target date set for spring.But he insisted other countries will have to make concessions.”We do not expect these negotiations to be easy,” Vaughn said.”For a very long time, our NAFTA partners have enjoyed an agreement that is tilted in their favour. They do not want to give up that advantage and we can understand why they feel that way. But our job … is to represent the people of this country — and they deserve a better deal.”
According to the proposed mechanism, it is a must to produce the certification of an electrician with the permanent license, which state that the installation was designed, wired and tested to receive the electrical connection to a domestic (up to 30A, single phase). For those who are qualified with National Vocational Qualification 3 (NVQ 3) and above can obtain a permanent license from CIDA within a day, after proving their knowledge at the evaluation facilitated by the Evaluation Panel.For those who are not professionally qualified, but have hands-on experience, are given the opportunity to prove the competency and to qualify for NVQ levels through a process facilitated by CIDA, so that they can apply for the permanent license.With the permanent license, electricians can design, wire, test, the installation of domestic wiring (30 amps Signal phase) and issue a certificate to get the electrical connection which is accepted by CEB and LECO. “With the mechanism in place, it is aimed to standardize the practice of the electricians to match with international standards and will encourage people who want to enter into this industry by transforming their social stigma to a social status.” Kumarasinghe said.PUCSL invites stakeholders views, suggestions, recommendations, concerns and comments related to the following areas;Categories/ classes of License to be issued and corresponding pre-requisite Qualifications.Eligibility Requirements for Licenses and the Responsibilities held.Suggestions on Structure of the Licensing Issuance Framework and Implementation.Accountabilities held by key stakeholders & consortium.Socio-Economic Impacts of the Licensing Issuance Framework Establishment.The proposed mechanism in detail is now available at www.pucsl.gov.lk for reference. Those who are interested can submit their written comments/submissions to the Commission by post/fax or e-mail (email@example.com) and online via www.pucsl.gov.lk on or before 21st March 2018.Further, PUCSL plans to hold an oral submission on the same. The venue and the date of the meeting will be communicated to the interested parties at an early date. (Colombo Gazette) Sri Lanka has about 21000 electricians and data shows that only a few of them are qualified in National Vocational Qualification (NVQ). Most of the wiring and maintenance of the households and other premises are carried out by electricians who have no recognized qualifications but have experience through practice.With the introduction of the mechanism, all the electricians will be issued a temporary license to continue their work and that license will only be valid for three (03) years. Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL), the electricity sector regulator, is to establish an accepted professional status for electricians in the country through accrediting their qualifications and experience.The proposed mechanism was developed by PUCSL in collaboration with the Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka (IESL), Tertiary, Vocational Education Commission (TVEC) and Construction Industry Development Authority (CIDA), Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) and Lanka Electricity Company (PVT) Limited (LECO). Electricians with permanent licenses can also carry-out the wiring, testing and installation of the three phase 30 amps & 60 amps installation, subject to the design by a chartered engineer.The proposed mechanism will also provide a career ladder for the electricians, according to their professional level and expertise, starting from apprentice, junior electrician, senior electrician, master electrician and utility electrician.The Utility electricians are recognized to install and maintain the distribution lines of 1000 Volt to 33000 Volt. Explaining the reasons behind the initiative taken, Director General of Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka, Damitha Kumarasingh said, “Sri Lanka has reported 106 electrocutions in the year 2017. 55 percent of the electrocutions have occurred due to the issues of wiring, maintenance and non-standards. With the system is in place, the professional status of the electricians will be uplifted as well as the safety and quality of the electrical installation will be assured.” PUCSL launched a public consultation on accrediting and licensing of electricians with a view of receiving the public, expertise and other stakeholder comments on the proposed mechanism. The comments will be accommodated to improve the proposed system.

canadian-money Alberta to see lowest salary increases in Canada in 2018 by Jonathan Muma Posted Aug 9, 2017 11:22 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Canadian employers are expected to take a cautious approach to salary increases in 2018.A new report shows the average wage is expected to go up about 2.3 per cent, a bit higher than normal, but it’s a more depressing picture for Alberta.Morneau Shapell’s VP of research and integrative solutions Paula Allen said salaries in Alberta are only going to go up about 1.8 per cent on average.“The good news is that there’s any increases really at all,” she said. “It’s been a difficult time for the (oil and gas) industry, there’s been a lot of changes, there’s been the disruption and rebuilding with the natural disasters”She said wage increases easily could have been zero, or even seen an overall decrease.“Even though oil and gas, the expected increase is just .8 per cent which was the lowest of all industries, I would say that the other industries are pretty much on par with their peers across the country,” said Allen.The report also showed adaptability is one of the top priorities for companies, but they know that is a two-way street.It also showed employers are concerned employees are not prepared for retirement.

More on harassment Share your voice Comments Shachihata A Japanese company is out with a portable UV stamp that lets victims of harassment leave an identifying mark on anyone who tries to assail them. “This is a stamp intended to deter nuisance,” reads a translated product page from Shachihata, a maker of pre-inked rubber stamps and stamp pads.Though the company doesn’t mention groping specifically, uninvited touches from chikan (gropers) are a widely known problem for women on packed rush-hour trains in Japan. Two decades ago, the country introduced female-only cars, and some lines have installed cameras as a deterrent. More recently, an app called DigiPolice came out, allowing victims to broadcast a loud “Stop it!” or pull up a full-screen SOS message they can show to fellow passengers. Shachihata’s new “anti-nuisance stamp” imprints a 9-millimeter image of an open hand in special ink that’s only visible under fluorescent light. The stamp comes in a little yellow case (signaling warning, the maker says) and has a reel cord so it can be attached to a bag or pocket. The product costs ¥2,700 (about $25, £21, AU $38), but a limited run sold out within the first hour. Tags 3 A Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department report from 2017 recorded 1,750 cases of groping or molestation, 30 percent of which occurred during the peak rush hour times of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. But as prevalent as groping is in Japan, the potential for misuse of a gadget like this is clear. What’s to stop someone from stamping someone to get revenge after being jilted? Or tagging someone who’s simply being annoying by talking on the phone too loudly? The ink can be washed off and the product is mainly meant as a deterrent, company spokesman Hirofumi Mukai told the Japan Times. The era of #MeToo has brought other products aimed at discouraging groping and calling attention to the general issue of harassment. The sensor-laden Dress For Respect, for example, measures how many times the wearer was groped and transfers that information via Wi-Fi to a control unit in real time.Originally published Aug. 28, 1:44 p.m PT.

VIT Chancellor Dr G Viswanathan on April 6 urged Government to provide free quality education to all children in the country.Delivering the presidential address at the University Day and Annual Sports Day function held at VIT, Vellore on April 6, Viswanathan said that 40 countries in the world offer free higher education to students, of which countries like Norway, Sweden, Germany, France,etc, provide free education to foreign students too. “It may not be possible to provide free education to foreign students, but we must be able to give free education to our own children. We have suggested that if it is not possible immediately let us begin with free education to girls now, later on we can expand with others also,” he said.

Pointing out that any welfare state should spend enough money on social infrastructure, mainly on education and health as education improves not only family but also society and the country, the Chancellor said that Central Government should spend atleast 6 percent of the GDP on education, but only four percent of GDP is now spent for education. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveComparing India and the United States of America on the expenditure spent per student in the education sector, he said that per student expenditure on schools in US was $ 12,000 whereas it was $1,100 in India. Speaking about VIT, Dr Viswanathan also said that VIT has provided scholarships of Rs 16.07 crore to students through various scholarships this year. “We are the first university to contribute Rs one crore to Kerala cyclone relief fund with the contribution of one day salary of teaching and non-teaching staff. With the help of contribution from teaching and non-teaching staff and the management we have contributed Rs 1.25 crore to the Tamilnadu government cyclone relief fund,” he said. Noting that Six IITs in the country had been the model for the government sector in higher education, he said that he wants VIT to be a model to private sector of this country, in which more than 75 percent of children study higher education. Chief Guest of the function, Justice T Raja, Judge, Madras High Court, Chennai, in his address appreciated VIT management for providing conducive atmosphere with excellent infrastructure for students to get good quality education. “After visiting this university and looking at its infrastructure it gives immense pleasure that I visited one of the top leading University in the world.” He urged students to come up with new technology and newer steps to help society and younger generation.

Kolkata: A no-holds barred political war is on in West Bengal between the ruling Trinamool Congress and the aggressive opposition BJP, with the rivals engaged in a close and often violent duel for control of civic bodies. The intense battles for municipalities are even being played out in the legal corridors. Soon after its Lok Sabha poll successes in the state, the BJP seemed to have taken the upper hand as over 50 councillors of three municipalities joined its fold by deserting the Trinamool. As a result, the Trinamool lost control of the boards in Halishahar, Naihati and Kanchrapara municipalities in North 24 Parganas district.

Further north of the state, the Darjeeling municipality also came BJP’s way when 17 Gorkha Janmukti Morcha councillors crossed over to the saffron camp. However, BJP’s initial euphoria got muted in the coming months as the Trinamool fought back with lot of gusto to reclaim the civic bodies either by engineering defections or by installing administrators. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state The Banerjee led administration appointed an administrator in Naihati, thereby thwarting the BJP’s advance in the civic body where 17 Trinamool councillors had changed sides in Dehi soon after the polls to reduce the ruling party to a minority in the 31-ward body. There is even much speculation that at least four of the Naihati councillors who had crossed over to the BJP are now in safehouses provided by the Trinamool and would rejoin their old party at an opportune time. The Trinamool leadership is also reportedly in talks with four other councillors who had also crossed over to the BJP. Once the talks are successful, the administrator is likely to be removed with the Trinamol forming the board, party sources said. But Trinamool made its most successful counter-attack at Kanchrapara, where it brought back in its ambit 14 of the deserters less than two weeks back, to once again regain the majority in the municipality. Similarly, in Halishahar, nine of the councillors who had joined the BJP, have returned to the Trinamool. But Halishahar’s fate now depends on the judiciary, with the Calcutta High Court ordering an interim stay on a no-trust vote against its chairman. Another municipality Bongaon in North 24 Parganas district is also now in a legal tangle following dispute over a confidence vote, held amid high drama and confusion with Trinamool Congress and BJP councillors both claiming majority. State BJP president Dilip Ghosh said inability of the Trinamool councillors to adapt to the strong disciplinary set-up of his party and the blatant use of the police and administration to threaten them forced them to return to their parent party. “The police is putting pressure, their houses are being damaged, not everybody is able to cope with such pressure,” Ghosh told IANS. On the other hand, state Food and Supplies Minister Jyotipriyo Mullick accused the BJP of engineering the defections under duress. “Many of them had been made to join the BJP with a revolver pointed at them. “But in their heat of heart, they were always with the Trinamool and Mamata Banerjee. They were feeling suffocated in BJP. So they are returning,” said Mullick, the North 24 Parganas district president of Trinamool.
