Cuts to humanitarian visas

first_imgHumanitarian visas have been cut to 750 places making it even more difficult for residents trying to bring out persecuted family members to Australia.Only 149 places remain for the next months even though there are currently 20,500 people seeking special humanitarian visas. The change in the program by the Federal Govermenment has direct links to the increase in boat arrivals but the Refugee Council of Australia wants the government to scrap the program that sees every visa granted to a boat arrival means one place is lost from the special humanitarian program. The council has told the government that by linking the two programs, they have caused “tensions and frustrations” between community groups and families which in turn is making refugee families here in Australia consider sending persecuted family members to the county by boat. In a briefing paper, the Immigration Department has warned the special humanitarian program ”is facing the greatest pressure since its inception” and this year is ”likely to be the smallest program in 30 years”.

BJP welcomes court orders to police to file FIR against

first_imgHyderabad: State BJP chief official spokesperson Krishna Saagar Rao said on Friday the party welcomed the direction of a court in Karimnagar to the police to file first information report (FIR) against AIMIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi. Addressing the media here, he said, “It is a slap in the face of the police and has reminded them of their limits and responsibilities.” Also Read – Vemulawada school seized after road accident Advertise With Us Krishna Saagar Rao alleged that the Majlis MLA had repeated his anti-Hindu statements at Karimnagar meeting recently as he is being protected by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and his government. This made him to move freely in Telangana districts and make statements insulting Hindus and Hindu society. He said earlier Akbaruddin was remanded in custody for 40 days for his statements against Hindus in Nirmal. However, the MIM leader had obtained bail in the case. Also Read – Non-bailable warrant to Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury Advertise With Us But, the State government under the TRS government had not filed a charge-sheet against him since 2014. In turn, this emboldened Majlis leader to repeat his anti-Hindu rhetoric at a meeting held recently in Karimnagar, he pointed out. Krishna Saagar Rao further alleged that on the one hand, KCR is protecting the MIM leaders when they are insulting Hindus, on the other, he is conducting Yagas ahead of the GHMC elections. Advertise With Us This exposed the double standards being followed by the TRS chief, he said. He further said the BJP has no objection to individuals performing pujas, yagnas as per their religious beliefs. However, in the name of yagam, the TRS chief should not misuse the government administration. The Chief Minister should not leave governance and peoples’ issues to winds while conducting yaganas at such a large-scale like kings, spending public money ahead of elections, making it look like more a ‘public relations exercise’ and to use it as an election weapon. People in the State are seeing it as “Rajakiya Yagnam” and “Elections Yagnam,” he added. The BJP leader said a city BJP leader Karuna Sagar had also filed a petition in a sessions court in the city seeking cancellation of bail given to the MIM MLA.last_img read more

Doctor Who Underrated Villain of the Week Mister Sweet

first_imgStay on target You know Daleks and Davros and Missy the Master, Angels and Silence hell-bent on disaster. But do you recall the most underrated Doctor Who villains of all?Each week, I will dig into the depths of the Whoniverse to examine one rejected, misjudged, or altogether forgotten big (or little, as the case may be) bad. Now, let’s travel back to Victorian England to the idyllic garden city of Sweetville.DailymotionMISTER SWEETFirst appearance: “The Crimson Horror” (2013)—season 7, episode 12Home planet: EarthDoctor: ElevenCompanion: Clara OswaldYorkshire, 1893. The Paternoster Gang are called to investigate a mysterious case in which victims are found petrified, with bright red skin.The inquest leads Madame Vastra, Jenny, and Strax north to utopian community Sweetville, founded by chemist and mechanical engineer Winifred Gillyflower and her “silent partner,” Mister Sweet.Advertised by Mrs. Gillyflower as a safe haven where people can survive the coming apocalypse, Sweetville is actually a factory for the preservation of “the fittest and the most beautiful,” who will start anew to make a better world.DailymotionOn a two-fold mission—infiltrate the community and find the Doctor (last seen frozen in the retina of a Crimson Horror victim)—Jenny discovers the Time Lord chained up, red-faced, and stiff as a board. A reject from the pickling procedure (which doesn’t appear to work on alien lifeforms), he was saved and stored by Ada Gillyflower, blind daughter of the Sweetville proprietor.Clara, however, wasn’t so lucky: The Doctor finds his companion preserved in a glass dome, from which he gallantly breaks her out and reverses the process with a swish of the sonic screwdriver.Puzzle pieces begin falling into place when Madame Vastra recognizes Sweetville’s serum as the venom of a prehistoric red leech—a major menace to the Silurian race, but a source of life for Mrs. Gillyflower.When confronted by the Doctor and Clara, the businesswoman finally introduces Mister Sweet, the red leech she found feeding on “the filth humanity has pumped into the rivers.”Dailymotion ” His needs are simple,” Mrs. Gillyflower explains of the toothy creature, which resides on her chest. “And in return, he gives me his nectar.”That nectar is the very poison she intends to spread across Earth, killing everyone except the “perfect” people she’s preserved.The gang, of course, foils her plan. And when militaristic Strax takes a shot at her, Gillyflower falls to her death. Abandoning its host, Mister Sweet tries to escape but meets the business end of an angry Ada’s cane.Little is known about the parasitic creatures, aside from their apparent diet of flesh and salt, as alluded to in the episode. Dreamt up by Mark Gatiss, the red leech is a reference to a Sherlock Holmes adventure (perhaps a nod to Gatiss’s other BBC program, Sherlock).Fun fact: “The Crimson Horror” was written specifically for mother-and-daughter pair Diana Rigg (Winifred Gillyflower)—famous for her role in British TV show The Avengers—and Rachael Stirling (Ada Gillyflower), who had never before appeared on screen together.Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership. ‘Doctor Who’ Underrated Villain of the Week: Mire’Doctor Who’ Underrated Villain of the Week: Zygon last_img read more

Improved Superconductivity in MultiWalled Carbon Nanotubes

first_img Physicists found the temperature at which carbon nanotubes become superconductors To be fair, observing a supercurrent through carbon nanotubes is not a new discovery. But past studies, which have used ropes made of single-walled carbon nanotubes (those consisting of just one cylinder rather than several nested cylinders), have only been able to achieve superconductivity by deep-freezing the nanotubes down to about 0.4 degrees Kelvin (K). Such an ultra-low “critical temperature,” as it’s called — just fractions of a degree away from 0 K, the coldest temperature possible — is very difficult to achieve and maintain in a laboratory.“In our study, the nanotubes superconducted at a much more manageable critical temperature of 12 K,” said Aoyama Gakuin University scientist Junji Haruyama. Haruyama is the lead author of the paper describing the work, which appears in the February 10, 2006, online edition of Physical Review Letters. “While 12 K is still extremely cold by everyday standards, it requires far less work to sustain. Also, in terms of potential applications of superconducting nanotubes, such as quantum molecular computing, this higher temperature is far more promising.”The scientists measured the supercurrent through the nanotubes by creating arrays of nano-sized electric “junctions” — very thin conducting layered structures. They began with a layer of aluminum, prepared such that it contained a grid of nanoscale pores. On top of this they deposited a layer of MWNTs, which inserted themselves vertically into the aluminum pores. Finally, they topped the nanotubes with a layer of gold.The group created three of these arrays. By carefully cutting off part of the nanotube layer, they created an array in which the nanotubes were flush with the aluminum surface and another in which the nanotubes jutted out slightly above the surface. For the third array, no cutting was done. As a result, each nanotube remained longer than the depth of each pore, and thus “spilled” over onto the aluminum.These three cases correspond to a different degree of nanotube-gold contact, referred to as “end bonding.” In the first array the nanotubes are only slightly end bonded with the gold, while in the third they are fully end bonded.End bonding turned out to be one important factor affecting the nanotubes’ ability to superconduct. Only the array containing entirely end-bonded MWNTs exhibited superconductivity at 12 K. Because the nanotubes were folded over, the gold could only make contact with the outer shell of each nanotube, rather than also bonding with the inner shells. However, in this third case the gold touched far more nanotube surface area.“We concluded that being entirely end bonded with the gold electrically activated all the shells in each nanotube,” said Haruyama. “In the other two arrays, only some of the shells were activated. This indicates that superconductivity in MWNTs is strongly related to the number of electrically active shells and, by extension, that electric interactions between shells play a large role.”Haruyama and his colleagues are planning several follow-up studies. These include an experiment that will attempt to increase the critical temperature of the nanotubes, as well as an investigation into how coupling neighboring nanotubes in the array’s MWNT layer could affect their superconductivity.Citation: “Superconductivity in Entirely End-Bonded Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes”, Phys.

Air pollution increases asthma risk in babies

first_imgBabies born to mothers exposed to air pollution from traffic sources during pregnancy have an increased risk of developing asthma before the age of five, finds a new study.Exposure to air pollution from traffic sources during pregnancy increases the risk of developing asthma during the first five years of life, even in urban areas with relatively low levels of pollution, the findings revealed. Also, children whose mothers lived close to highways during pregnancy had a 25 per cent increased relative risk of developing asthma, the study said. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“Our study results highlight the importance of exposure to pollution while babies are still in the womb. Air pollution from traffic sources increased the risk of developing asthma during early years before children reach school age, even in an urban area with relatively low levels of air pollution,” said Hind Sbihi, from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. In addition, children born with a low birth weight were more susceptible to the respiratory effects of air pollution, the study showed.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe risk increased with an increase in levels of nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide: two markers of traffic-related air pollution, the researchers said. The study, published in the European Respiratory Journal, looks at the role of variation in air pollution in urban areas and the development of asthma, the researchers said.Over 65,000 Canadian children were included in the study and followed up from birth until the age of 10 years.last_img read more

How to preserve your skins youthfulness

first_imgSkin ageing is a natural process. However, it gets accelerated due to fast-paced lifestyles, imbalanced diet and exposure to harsh weather conditions. Protect your eyes, keep skin moisturised and more for youthful skin, say experts. It is important to start early and help your body replenish the collagen it is losing with the help of preventative treatments and quality skincare products to maintain healthy looking skin.Here are a few suggestions to maintain youthful skin: Also Read – Add new books to your shelf* Moisturise your skin: Look for a herbal day cream that consists of SPF and Edelweiss plant stem cell extract which is known for having antioxidant, anti-ageing and skin conditioning properties. The cream should provide intense hydration, be fast-absorbing and able to re-plump skin.* Follow a healthy diet: An imbalanced diet not only affects your health but also your skin. Therefore, it is important to consume foods that encourage healthy skin renewal. A diet comprising high-vitamin foods such as fruits, salads and natural juices are rich in anti-oxidants that help provide moisturisation and maintain naturally glowing skin. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive* Add a night cream to your skin care regimen: During the night time, skin cell production doubles and skin layers are renewed. While sufficient sleep is the key to flawless skin, enhance this process with an herbal night cream consisting of botanical extracts, by applying it right before sleeping. Night creams work overnight to provide intense hydration making your skin visibly youthful.* Protect your eyes: The area around your eyes is sensitive and most susceptible to developing the first signs of ageing. Use a herbal under eye cream packed with Edelweiss plant stem cells, which will soothe tired eyes. The cream would help gently nourish and hydrate the tender skin around your eyes.* Take a break: Today’s fast-paced life and increased stress levels lead to emotional as well as physical distress. Dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles are signs of ageing that are accelerated due to stress. Indulging in a calming activity such as yoga or meditation can help detoxify your body, balance hormone levels and relieve you of stress.last_img read more

Cabinet greenlights creation of oncology council to streamline cancer services

first_imgThe cabinet on Wednesday approved the creation of a Supreme Council for Oncology tasked with introducing a multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment that aims at offering the most suitable treatment to each patient, Health Minister Giorgos Pamboridis said.The council of ministers, in its last meeting, took a number of decisions concerning cancer patients but also for the extension of the patient referrals programme to the private sector and for the overtime scheme to extend operating hours in state hospitals.According to Pamboridis, the cabinet approved his proposal for the creation of a Supreme Council for Oncology which will be made up of a number of expert committees. The body will look into the needs of each cancer patient and propose the most suitable treatment.Decisions were also taken for unifying all oncology services at the Nicosia and Limassol general hospitals and of the Bank of Cyprus Oncology Centre, also in Nicosia to operate as one unit.This, he said, was part of plans to “modernise procedures, fully embracing the model of the multidisciplinary approach, which is the modern model for oncological services worldwide”.Pamboridis said that multidisciplinary committees of experts would be tasked with determining individualised treatments for each cancer patient. He added that all cancer patients would be referred to this council, which will have specialists on hand for different kinds of cancers, which will decide on the appropriate treatment “to save both resources, but also to better target the treatment of each individual”.The minister also announced that consultations were underway with the newly-established German Oncology Centre based in Limassol to provide services to Limassol and Paphos cancer patients who are currently forced to travel to Nicosia for treatment. Consultations, that are expected to conclude within the coming days, also include referring patients who have to go abroad for certain procedures, like PET/CT scan, Pamboridis said.The cabinet also approved the extension of the overtime scheme for all surgical specialties in state hospitals to extend operating hours during the afternoons, and incentives for non-surgical specialists to also do overtime work to serve more patients.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Man and woman remanded after hitand run that killed Briton Updated

first_imgA 35-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were arrested on Sunday and remanded for eight days after a British tourist, 39 was killed and another, aged 32, was injured in a hit-and-run on the Peyia-Ayios Georghios road in Paphos in the early hours.The pair is facing charges of premeditated murder and attempted murder. They were brought before the Paphos district court and remanded for eight days.Police were alerted to an accident at 3am when someone reported two people lying on the road.  The two British tourists were taken to Paphos hospital where the 39-year-old man was pronounced dead on arrival and the second man was hospitalised but is out of danger.From the evidence collected, it appears that prior to the hit-and-run there had been an altercation at a bar in Coral Bay during which the two Britons reportedly tried to defend the woman who was being hit by the 35-year-old suspect.The couple then left the bar and drove off.The car believed to have been involved in the hit-and-run was found abandoned at dawn at the Ayios Georghios harbour, CNA reported.  It was in the sea and had to be removed by the fire service.Witnesses told police the man and woman were both in the water and that people had helped the woman out when she called for help. The man got out by himself. They both then left the area on foot but were picked up by police shortly afterwards. The abandoned car from hit-and-run (Photo: CNA)   You May LikeAssisted Living | Search AdsAssisted Living Homes in Rowland HeightsAssisted Living | Search AdsUndoBest Of SeniorAmerican Sweetheart Danica Patrick Lives In This Beautiful HomeBest Of SeniorUndoHabit TribeThe Real Reason Moms Are Gluing Pennies To Their Kids’ ShoesHabit TribeUndo Urgent work planned on collapsed section of Nicosia wallsUndoBritain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoFresh case of Blue Nile virus in northUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
