Darjeeling: A Division Bench of the Jalpaiguri Circuit Bench of Calcutta High Court ruled on Wednesday that both the Binay Tamang and Bimal Gurung factions of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha can field candidates for the Darjeeling Assembly by-elections. However, they will have to be fielded as Independent candidates.Incidentally, the Gorkha Janukti Morcha had undergone a split in 2017, with both Bimal Gurung and Binay Tamang claiming stake. Later Anit Thapa, the general secretary of GJM, had filed a writ petition at the single bench of Justice Debangshu Basak in Calcutta High Court.

Joy Saha, the counsel appearing for Anit Thapa, argued that as per Section 29(A) of the Representation of People’s Act, all registered parties have to hand in names of office bearers and constitution to the EC hence. As the EC has access to such information, it is but apt that they should adjudicate. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway”The appeal was admitted. Though the bench did not give the final order , it ruled that both the Binay Tamang and Bimal Gurung factions can use the name of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha during campaign trail, however the names of the factions have to be specified,” stated Chatterjee. The bench further ruled that candidates fielded by the factions will have to be fielded as Independent candidates. “Symbols used by the GJM in previous elections cannot be used by both the sides and they will have to use the symbols accorded by the EC. As nominations for the by-election will have to filed by April 29 and polling is on May 19, the bench did not give the final order but has given a solution to the impasse for the time being. After the election, the matter will be heard again,” added the Special PP.

The report by Environics Analytics says Canadian average household net worth topped $400,000 at the end of 2012 for the first time in history at $400,151, thanks to a 5.8% pickup during the year. The report attributes the improvement to a 5.4% increase in liquid assets and a 5.1 gain in real estate values, in conjunction with a more modest 3.3% rise in debt. The new data shows the Canadian households are still richer than their American counterparts, which had a US$381,086 average wealth at the end of 2012. But the gap is closing. That’s because while Canadian household debt rose modestly by 3.3%, in the U.S. debt actually declined by 2.4% last year. But debt accumulation has slowed markedly since last July, when Ottawa imposed stricter mortgage rules to slow down the housing market. The Bank of Canada has long warned that Canadian households owe too much, at more than 160% of annual disposable income. The household wealth calculation does not take into account government debt, which is far higher in the U.S. than Canada. The data shows households in Regina had the biggest jump in net worth last year, rising 11.2% to $391,826. That was fuelled by the strongest growth in real estate holdings among cities and the second fastest rise in liquid assets, behind Saskatoon, Environics Analytics said. Hamilton experienced the second fastest growth in net worth among major cities, up 9.5% to $420,515. Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto remain Canada’s wealthiest cities.Related: Savvy millennials get an early start on investing — Financial PostMassive writedown for Goldcorp Goldcorp Inc. reported an enormous net loss of US$1.93-billion in the second quarter after taking a big writedown on the Penasquito mine in Mexico, reports the Financial Post‘s Peter Koven.

Cohen, was indicted by a U.S. grand jury as part of the government’s six-year crackdown on insider trading on Wall Street. Federal prosecutors on Thursday unveiled criminal fraud charges against billionaire Steven A. Cohen’s SAC Capital Advisors LP, capping the probe into one of Wall Street’s most renowned firms. The indictment accused SAC and various affiliates of four counts of securities fraud and one count of wire fraud. Cohen was charged last week in a civil case by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the hedge fund said it would fight the charges.Related: Lawyer for SAC’s Cohen: Don’t call him ‘Stevey’ — Financial Post SEC sues billionaire hedge fund founder Steven Cohen for failing to prevent insider trading — Associated PressBell Canada to Ottawa: Close ‘unfair’ foreign ownership loopholesBell Canada has joined Rogers Communications in calling for Ottawa to change its policy on foreign ownership of Canadian wireless communications networks.

College and university students across Ontario walked out of their classrooms Wednesday afternoon to protest the government’s changes to post-secondary funding.The protests were organized by the Canadian Federation of Students’ Ontario chapters and happened around noon at school’s throughout the province. The recent changes to funding include the elimination of free tuition for low-income students in January and made several once-mandatory student fees, such as those that fund campus organizations and clubs, optional.The previous Liberal government had increased the number of grants and made it possible for low-income students to qualify for grants large enough to cover the full cost of tuition. Under the Progressive Conservative’s plan, a portion of the funding they receive will be a loan.Hundreds of students filled the streets around Ryerson University in Toronto to protest the changes. #studentwalkout #wethestudents #nomoredougford pic.twitter.com/oyHloEGPgm— 🌙✨☁️ (@cardosooraquell) March 20, 2019

Just when you thought Kickstarter was never going to produce a worthwhile product, the Spider Tank Mark 6 shows up. This is the culmination of several years of work for toy inventor Jaimie Mantzel, who first demoed the Spider Tank last year. This remote controlled walking robot kit comes with everything you need to build your own — assuming it can raise $350,000 before August 14th.The Spider Tank Mark 6 not only walks around intimidating pets and small children, but it has a full assortment of weapons including a dart launcher, ball blaster, and disc launcher. Each of these accessories attaches in a few seconds, and can be angled up and down for better aim. This is a fully articulated robot — the central stalk can rotate as the body walks around. It’s actually a little eerie and organic-looking.It’s called the Spider Tank, but it should be pointed out there are only six legs. That’s probably okay, because you have to put it together yourself. Yes, this is a kit, not a finished robot. However, a lot of the electronics are pre-assembled. You’ll have to solder the accessories in a few places, but Mantzel promises video walkthroughs of the whole process.This isn’t the only walking robot toy out there, in fact the Spider Tank has the blessing of Wowstuff, which sells a very similar finished robot created by Mantzel. The hope is that building a custom robot will get people interested in robotics and science.If you want in, the basic kit with one weapon costs $77. For $99 you get the deluxe kit with all three weapon attachments and an extra set of “explodo armor” (it pops off when hit). For $107 you get the deluxe set with all the tools you need to build the bot.The campaign still has almost $300,000 to raise, but this is surprisingly one of the least outlandish things I’ve seen on Kickstarter recently.

All three services are embarking on ambitious efforts to increase the environmental sustainability of their installations, with the ultimate goal of reducing the consumption of energy, water and waste resources to an effective rate of zero.These efforts — first launched by the Army in 2011 under its Net Zero Initiative — are helping the military conserve energy while increasing its reliance on renewable energy sources and enhancing its energy security; reduce consumption of freshwater resources so as not to deplete groundwater; and limit the use of landfills. The efforts also are aimed at saving money.To better understand the benefits experienced by the services pursuing net zero goals, as well as the challenges, the House Armed Services’ Readiness Subcommittee directs the Government Accountability Office to report on the successes achieved to date along with areas for improvement. According to report language attached to the panel’s portion of the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill, the report should address:to what extent has DOD developed an integrated net zero strategy for energy, water and waste management at its installations?what impact do net zero initiatives have on maintaining mission capability?what challenges have installations encountered implementing net zero initiatives?what lessons have been learned from the initiative, and how are those lessons being shared and optimized?what have been the costs and benefits of net zero initiatives?how successful have the military departments and installations been in implementing the net zero initiative?The report would be due May 15, 2016. The subcommittee’s portion of the authorization bill is available on the committee website. Dan Cohen AUTHOR
Fans have already dubbed it as the El Classico – and for all their aura, Chennai Super Kings seem to bottle things up against the Mumbai Indians. This season has been no different, Mumbai have already handed CSK defeat in the first round match in Mumbai. However, Dhoni’s side which is only one win away from securing the playoffs berth would want to complicate things for Mumbai Indians by giving one back.Predicted XI of both sides: MS DhoniINDRANIL MUKHERJEE/AFP/Getty ImagesChennai Super Kings: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh, Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Jason Behrendorff, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit BumrahFantasy tips and suggestions:Wicket-keeper: A lot of discussions has been about the nature of the surface in Chennai, but the pitch against Sunrisers was an absolute belter. If the strip remains the same, expect Quinton de Kock to be a big threat in the powerplay overs.Batsmen: Rohit Sharma walks into the side, and has generally the CSK bowling. His biggest nemesis has been Dwayne Bravo, but Dhoni has used Bravo in the backend which could allow the MI skipper to settle down and play innings of note. Also, Suryakumar Yadav, who has not been as prolific season, should be the other batsman in the side.Faf de Plessis, who has shown great temperament, will open the innings for CSK and should be one of the picks. Suresh Raina could enjoy the Mumbai bowling attack but has to be wary of the Jasprit Bumrah threat. File photo of Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya.IANSAll-rounders: Dwayne Bravo, who has not picked up as many wickets as he would have wanted this season, remains an integral member of Dhoni’s plans. He will bowl in the death and will have the opportunity to pick up wickets especially when the batsmen are looking to go after the bowling.Also, Hardik Pandya has been a revelation this season for Mumbai Indians, especially with the bat and if the surface is sluggish, he can be a threat against the CSK spinners. Also, with his cutters, Hardik the bowler can be quite the handful.Spinners: Imran Tahir gets the nod. The leg spinner just knows how to pick up wickets and control proceedings in the middle overs. He gets the ball from Dhoni when the pressure is amped and more often than not, delivers wickets.And then there is the other seasonal pro in Harbhajan Singh, who knows all about the Mumbai Indians camp. The offie has been brilliant at home and picks up wickets early in the powerplay overs to break the back of the opposition.Seamers: Jasprit Bumrah, after an iffy start, has hit his stride and is perhaps the most feared fast bowler in the IPL. Teams do not go after him which presents Rohit with an opportunity to use him as an attacking option.Also, Deepak Chahar, who has been the ace up MS Dhoni’s sleeve this season, more so because he gets the ball to seam around and picks up wickets with the new ball which sets the tone perfectly.
Different countries may have customs that one is unaware of, but it is the responsibility of travellers to leave destinations as they find them and help preserve their natural environment. 4Stay local: Opting for locally-owned and -run accommodation will not only provide you with a more traditional experience but you will be supporting local business owners who often build their livelihood on showing visitors the beauty and sights of where they live. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf4Be respectful of local wildlife: It’s a given, but wildlife is a big part of what makes certain destinations so desirable and there are certain things you might not think of: for example, taking selfies with wildlife could scare creatures and feeding them human food can be really harmful. Just having a heightened awareness is key to respecting the local wildlife and its surroundings.4Buying local: Visiting local markets and shops is a great way to explore a city and buying local is an important part of giving back to the people who live there. You will end up with some lovely, unique souvenirs and with a feeling that you’ve supported a local businessperson. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive4Watching your water usage: When we’re not paying the water bill, it is easy to forget the impact this could have on the local environment, so turning off taps when brushing teeth and keeping shower length to a minimum is still something to bear in mind when on holiday.4Travel with local leaders: Not only will you likely get the most authentic and enjoyable tour with a local guide who has a genuine passion for where they live, but you know you’re supporting a local. That’s how you’re going to find out the most interesting things about a place and, ultimately, have the best time. 4Offset carbon emissions (where possible): It would be naive to think you can be entirely eco-friendly when taking a flight overseas but it is worth bearing in mind which tour operators try to mitigate the impact of flying. That way, you know you are doing your bit to help whilst also still enjoying the sights of the world.4Learn the local language: Just being able to say some key phrases and communicate with local people goes a long way in ensuring tourists are welcome in particular areas. You may just impress your family and friends too.4Pack right: One way to do so while also being a responsible traveller is by packing culturally suitable clothes and avoiding packing disposable goods that may not be recycled.4Think before you click: That click is in reference to photos. Being respectful of the local community means checking that people are happy for you to take photos that they will appear in.

They are musical icons, but they’ve never won a Grammy Award NEW YORK, N.Y. – Remember when the cast of the TV series “Glee” earned a Grammy nomination for their version of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” at the 2011 Grammys, pitting them against Sade, Maroon 5 and Paramore?It’s fair that you don’t recall that moment — but guess who never earned a nomination for “Don’t Stop Believin”’? Journey.The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have never even earned a Grammy Award, and have only been nominated once in their entire career.They’re one of many respected acts in music to have somehow been bypassed by the Grammys, despite much younger acts like Kanye West and Beyonce winning more than 20 awards each.“I’m very grateful that the fans are (still) there regardless of what I have sitting on my shelf,” Journey’s Neal Schon said in an interview with The Associated Press. “If it happens, it’s a nice gesture and something to look it at in memory of everything you’ve done and accomplished, but you know what? I’ve got it in my heart.”The Rolling Stones, surprisingly, have only been awarded two Grammys, and Led Zeppelin finally picked it up its first Grammy in 2014. Lou Reed only has one win, for best long form music video, though his former band, The Velvet Underground, has never been rewarded for its music.Below we take a look at icons who currently, and sadly, can’t put these two words before their names: Grammy winner.______— Diana Ross(asterisk), 12 nominations: Stop in the name of love! How could this be? Maybe this counts for something: Ross did receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, a noncompetitive honour, from the Recording Academy in 2012.— Snoop Dogg, 16 nominations: Give this dog a bone!— Bob Marley(asterisk), 0 nominations: The first reggae Grammy was presented in 1985, four years after Marley died. Despite that, we all know he should have won or earned nominations for album, song and record of the year while he was alive. At least his children are decorated with Grammys: Ziggy and Stephen have eight wins each, while Damian, Cedella and Sharon have three each.— Chuck Berry(asterisk), 0 nominations: Beethoven just rolled over in his grave.— The Beach Boys(asterisk), 4 nominations: “Good Vibrations” brought bad vibrations when it lost in three categories at the 1967 Grammys.— Patsy Cline(asterisk), 0 nominations: Cline died in 1963, just four years after the Grammys handed out its first award.— Jimi Hendrix(asterisk), 1 nomination: What stings more is that his sole nomination was for his instrumental performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and not an original song.— Queen, 4 nominations: Bog Seger and Chicago are to blame for beating out “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Another One Bites the Dust” at the Grammys.— Notorious B.I.G, 4 nominations: It’s sort of heartbreaking that Biggie lost two Grammys at the 1998 show, which occurred almost a year after his death, to his close friend Puff Daddy. But what’s worse? Digesting the fact that B.I.G’s epic song, “Hypnotize,” lost best rap solo performance to Will Smith’s “Men in Black.”— Tupac Shakur, 6 nominations: At least Tupac lost to the Fugees, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Eminem’s debut single, “My Name Is.”— Depeche Mode, 5 nominations: Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson out-danced Depeche Mode in the 2000s when the group was up for best dance recording in separate years.— Patti Smith, 4 nominations: Sheryl Crow and Fiona Apple rocked harder than Smith, according to the Grammys, when Smith was nominated for best female rock vocal performance in two different years. Smith also lost to Carol Burnett and Jimmy Carter in the best spoken word album category.— Janis Joplin(asterisk), 2 nominations: At least Joplin lost at the 1972 show to Carole King’s “Tapestry” and Aretha Franklin’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”— Nas, 13 nominations: Is there another rapper as artistic and lyrically deep as Nas? He’s almost the kind of artist the Grammys were created for, but, somehow, he’s always walked away empty handed.— Run-D.M.C.(asterisk), 1 nomination: Back at the 1987 show rap Grammys didn’t exist, so Run D.M.C. competed for best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocal with their “Raising Hell” album. But they had to kiss the possibility of winning goodbye: Prince and the Revolution was also a nominee for their funky classic hit, “Kiss.”— A Tribe Called Quest, 4 nominations: This is somewhat of a consolation prize: Q-Tip won best dance recording with The Chemical Brothers for “Galvanize.”— Kenny Chesney, 6 nominations: Five out of Chesney’s six Grammy nominations were for his collaborations, so this year’s nomination for best country album marks a new high for the veteran singer. Maybe being solo will seal the deal.— Other well-known acts to also lack in Grammy love include The Ramones(asterisk), The Who(asterisk), Bjork, Guns N Roses, Iggy Pop, Kiss, Morrissey, Buddy Holly(asterisk), Oasis, Rush, The Kinks, The Strokes and Queens of the Stone Age.___The asterisk ((asterisk)) indicate artists who have received the Lifetime Achievement Award by The Recording Academy.___Online: http://www.grammy.com___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason FILE – In this Nov. 19, 2017 file photo, Diana Ross, lifetime achievement award recipient, poses in the press room at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles.

“BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII." Lee said in a press release, 23, However, known for elevated fiction and news-breaking political titles such as Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury announced in 2016 that it had bestowed Bravo TV personality Andy Cohen with his own imprint One of the trailblazers in this space was Anthony Bourdain who died June 8 at age 61 Daniel Halpern president and publisher of Ecco Books gave his star author Bourdain his own imprint in 2011 “It was his love of literature that got him doing this” Halpern says Anthony Bourdain Books has published 13 works since its founding–thanks in large part to Bourdain’s ability to identify talent Even before he had his own imprint Bourdain was bringing in new voices and insisting Halpern publish them Ecco will publish the few remaining under contract before closing in the wake of Bourdain’s death “It’s devastating” Halpern says “Nobody was so curious and committed not even close” The proto–celebrity editor might be Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who took on a consulting editorship at Viking Press in 1975 (In ’77 a Viking spokesperson told the Washington Post that Onassis worked a two- or three-day week “except when she’s out of the country”) The former First Lady oversaw titles on Russian costumes and fairy tales “Jackie Kennedy is one of the models Sarah Jessica and I discussed when we started talking about the partnership” says Molly Stern senior vice president and publisher of Crown Hogarth and Archetype books who first approached Parker about taking a shot at publishing “Jackie was a journalist before she was married to the President and Sarah Jessica was a lifelong reader before she became an actress” SJP for Hogarth will publish literary fiction–Parker’s favorite genre–with an emphasis on multicultural voices “I’m focused on stories that cultivate empathy and expose us to people whose homes I’m not likely to be invited into” the newly minted editorial director says of her mission Fatima Farheen Mirza’s A Place for Us the imprint’s debut novel concerns the dynamics of an Indian-American Muslim family in California While Layla and Rafiq try to uphold their customs their children Huda Hadia and Amar struggle to please their parents while also fitting in with their new schoolmates In polished prose that zeroes in on domestic detail and at its loveliest recalls Jhumpa Lahiri Mirza delivers a portrait of a family straining to hold its center amid rebellions both quiet and explosive “I didn’t even know what an imprint was when Sarah Jessica called me to discuss my novel” says Mirza a 27-year-old graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop “She was so thoughtful and the parts of the book she brought up were the ones most precious to me It was uncanny” Parker says she gets nervous in her new role Taking an approach that’s part book nerd and part method actor she travels to bookseller conventions doodles book-cover ideas and attends Penguin Random House’s launch and marketing meetings–where she presents her selections in hopes of winning over the internal support necessary to any book’s success “I don’t want to look like a lightweight” Parker says “I don’t want people to think I’m dabbling I want them to know I take their work seriously and I try to learn about the trade–I’ve spent a lot of time learning about the importance of bookshelf placement” (If it isn’t visible she notes it’s not going to be purchased) Kirby Kim a literary agent with Janklow & Nesbit Associates has firsthand experience with the soup-to-nuts nature of Parker’s involvement In March when he submitted a novel to multiple houses ahead of the London Book Fair Parker took a break from fair events to read the manuscript and her imprint wasted no time coming in with an offer “Instead of just networking and schmoozing she actually zoomed through the submission” Kim says Ultimately another publisher won the title “You lose books–that has been gutting” Parker says “It’s tough but it’s been good for me I don’t have a limitless budget I have to be thoughtful about how we’re spending our dollars” For their part Dunham and Konner have also remained active in the editorial process by keeping the Lenny list small with a manageable load of only a few books a year “They’re reading right along with us and offering ideas” says Random House editor in chief Andy Ward who is also Dunham’s editor “They’re incredibly good with the cover stuff too with type and illustration and in general coming up with ideas to give these books a look that feels a little different from what we might normally do” The literary world seems largely ready to embrace books from celebrity imprints on their merits Lenny’s 2017 debut Sour Heart by Jenny Zhang a collection of short stories about Chinese-American girls growing up in New York City was a critical hit and landed on multiple best-of-the-year lists The imprint’s next offering is Providence by Caroline Kepnes a modern-day retelling of HP Lovecraft’s horror tale “The Dunwich Horror” about a man who becomes a monster with destructive powers With its campy feel Providence might not seem an obvious sibling for the literary Sour Heart–even more so because it’s a co-product of the author and the book packager Alloy Entertainment which created the Gossip Girl series But the works have in common a pair of uniquely powerful champions in Dunham and Konner who promote their books in their online magazine Lenny Letter Even so certain authors might prefer the imprimatur of a literary institution over a celebrity’s “I could see why celebrity imprints would be ripe for derision–critics might say celebrities are trying to look smart” says Katherine Fausset a literary agent with Curtis Brown Ltd But she adds “maybe Sarah Jessica Parker has a greater chance of sitting next to Meryl Streep at a dinner party than some other editor” And nearly every writer wants to see their book turned into a movie As stars including Reese Witherspoon and Emma Roberts have helped buoy writers to greater visibility with their popular book clubs the walls between publishing and film have only eroded further “If you’re being positive about what’s happening now exciting is the right word” says Smith “If you’re being negative the word is parasitic” It’s also a new take on an old tradition Not long ago the effort was to spin book editors into celebrities Within the last decade or so industry dynamos such as Lee Boudreaux Sarah Crichton and Reagan Arthur were all given their own imprints that featured their names on the spines But those experiments were short-lived The only remaining of the three FSG’s Sarah Crichton Books is set to shutter next year Parker meanwhile is off to the races promoting her first novel Two weeks before its release she posted a picture

the endless stream of emails catty coworkers unpaid overtimethe reasons go on and on But a new study published in the journal Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology found its not only office problems that wear you down (though on-the-job factors can definitely affect you too) Here three other things that may be causing your work burnout: Youre not getting enough support at home Feel like you cant vent to your partner about your day Turns out having an understanding significant other is just as important as having a supportive boss in preventing work burnout the Canadian researchers found If you feel like your partner doesnt get where youre coming from be it at work or at home have a sit-down with them and talk about how a little listening can go a long way Youre not social enough And were not talking about Facebook People who had the support of a social network outside the office hadfewer mental health issues associated with job burnout the study also found So take the time to meet with your friends for coffee or a drink after work even if youre not in the mood after long day And if most of your friends are your officemates consider joining a social group that syncs with a hobby or pastime (think hiking or reading) thats well-removed from your work social circle Youre not taking a lunch break Well at least not away from your desk A separate study from the University of Toronto found that skipping your lunch break can make you less motivated and less productive Researchers say this habit can drain your psychological energy by lunchtime and doesnt give you time to recharge So while you may think youre being an office star by eating your salad at your desk you may actually feel more sluggish and get less done (potentially leading to later nights on the job) A survey by tech company the Draugiem Group takes it one step further: They found the most productive people got up once every 52 minutes (for 17-minute breaks but that seems like a bit much)
