Terrorism akin to cancer hurts India and Afghanistan Afghan diplomat

first_imgNew York: India and Afghanistan have been hurt by terrorism which is “like cancer” and threatens peace in the region, a top Afghan diplomat has said while appealing to the international community not to view his war-torn country as an isolated case. Speaking at an event organised at Asia Society here on Monday, National Security Adviser of Afghanistan Hamdullah Mohib said Pakistan talked about brotherhood and historical linkages but hardly shows any cooperation in combating terrorism.

Replying to a question on Afghanistan’s estimate of cooperation from Islamabad, the top diplomat said Pakistan is “always very nice, they speak about brotherhood, historical linkages and the likes but then all we see is terrorists coming our way and no brotherhood”. Mohib said India and Afghanistan were hurt by terrorism and both the countries have suffered a great deal. “We understand what the cost is that we are paying,” he said.

It is our problem today but it will soon be someone else’s problem once it’s no longer ours,” Mohib said. Referring to the Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS), he said the plan stayed only on paper and did not get implemented. “There hasn’t been any action (on APAPPS) and there is no interest from Pakistan to implement it. There is no cooperation with Afghanistan in any aspect,” he said. Mohib said Afghanistan had diversified its trade from Pakistan, stressing that if it had not done so, the prices of the food items would have skyrocketed this year due to drought. “We have diversified into our northern route through Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan now and through Iran by Chabahar connecting to India. It has opened up opportunities for Afghanistan not only to increase our trade but also to give us more options for import. We had to do that,” he said. Mohib said the easiest and cheapest way for these trade routes for Afghanistan would have been through Pakistan but Islamabad has failed to act. “We have never seen any progress on action. And so until we see willingness to make action, we are not going to buy any more words from Pakistan,” he said. Mohib stressed that it was important that the international community does not view Afghanistan as an isolated case. “It’s an issue that is shared. We are taking the brunt of the issue here and making the sacrifices. If this were to end in Afghanistan – and not in the way that we would want it to be, which is a clear defeat of non-state actors and proxy groups – this precedent could start to haunt other countries in our immediate neighbourhood to begin with,” he said. On the issue of security in the region and terrorism, he said non-state actors were a “dangerous precedents to allow”. “A lot of countries think that because they have not been hit by non-state actors, it’s not their problem. Letting this precedent to be opens doors and opportunities for other groups to operate. “If one of these groups were to be successful, for whatever their objectives may be, it leaves the precedent for many others who are also part of that DNA,” he said.last_img read more

Rhino bone recovered 2 held in Jalpaiguri

first_imgDarjeeling: Two persons were arrested and a bone of a rhinoceros was recovered from their possession in Jalpaiguri district on Monday.Based on a tip-off, the Special Task Force of the Forest department led by Sanjay Dutta, range officer, Belakoba Range, conducted a raid at a location in Fatapukur on National Highway 31 C at around 2 pm on Monday. “We found 3 persons in a huddle beside the road.

UN agencies concerned about worsening humanitarian conditions of displaced Iraqis in Kurdistan

“Most displaced families have already been forced to move multiple times within Kurdistan and the increase in population is putting strain on Kurdistan’s already limited resources and host communities,” said Jane Pearce, Representative and Country Director of WFP in Iraq in a news release issued by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).She added that the conflict has already forced most people to be uprooted several times and are now struggling to find work to feed themselves or their families.OCHA said that over three million people have been displaced throughout Iraq, including an estimated one million within Kurdistan and the neighbouring areas of Ninewa and Diyala governorates, due to the Iraqi crisis, which is now well into its second year.“Where farmers have had their equipment and harvests destroyed, crop production has plummeted and markets are ruined. Price fluctuations, reduced water supply and insecurity have devastated overall food production across the country and put more strains on the 2.4 million food-insecure Iraqis.” said Dr. Fadel ElZubi, FAO Representatives in Iraq.According to the rapid assessment, which surveyed internally displaced Iraqis living in and out of camps as well as local communities, high unemployment rates have driven displaced families to increasingly rely on negative coping mechanisms such as skipping meals, eating smaller portions and spending their savings, in order to meet their basic food needs.The assessment warned that due to high unemployment rates and many IDP families, especially in camps facing severe shortage of funding, additional shocks could have an impact on their ability to afford enough food.Alternatively, amid increased displacements and a severe lack of funding, WFP has been forced to reduce food rations by up to 50 per cent, resulting in many families, who previously had sufficient access to food, now facing the risk of food insecurity.Lastly, OCHA warned that continued conflict, reductions in WFP food assistance and disruptions to the Public Distribution System, a Government-run social protection programme that provides food to all Iraqis, could push more people to cope by selling assets, eating fewer meals and eating less nutritious food, which would in turn cause levels of nutrition to fall further as winter sets in. read more

NBA Finals Preview LeBron vs Curry vs Everybody Else

In the NBA, superstars command so much attention — and affect their teams’ fortunes so deeply relative to other sports — that it’s difficult to resist advertising a playoff series as Star A versus Star B, with teammates and coaches taking lesser billing. Sure enough, this year’s finals bout between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers is already being touted as a struggle between Stephen Curry and LeBron James.That’s usually not a terrible prism through which to view things. Since 1985, the star — defined as the best player available to a team for the series in question, according to wins above replacement (WAR) during the regular season — with the better individual numbers1As measured by leveraged points above replacement. in the playoff series itself has carried his team to victory about two-thirds of the time.In other words, as go the stars, very often so go their teams. But even if James outplays Curry, this series could land in the other third — with a Warriors win — because Golden State has such an edge in the supporting cast department.To judge the delicate balance between star power and sidekick strength, I used Basketball-Reference.com’s playoff data going back to 1985, looking at how much of any given series’s outcome can be explained by the quality2According to a multiyear Statistical Plus/Minus talent projection. of a team’s leading man and that of his supporting cast. According to relative importance, the difference in talent suiting up alongside each star in a series is roughly 2.2 times as important to the series result3Including the margin of games by which the series was won or lost. as the talent disparity between the stars themselves.How well does that mean James will need to play to offset the difference between his Cavs teammates and Curry’s Warriors? If each team followed the distribution of minutes used to generate our Real Plus-Minus series projection (see table above), James would need to put up numbers in the 99th percentile of all single-series star performances for Cleveland’s win probability to overcome the quality of Curry’s teammates and break even against Golden State.It’s a tall task, although one James is certainly capable of. Since 1985, he owns four of the 10 best star turns in a playoff series, all of which would be enough to help the Cavs topple the Warriors. (And that doesn’t even factor in the possibility that Curry could be held below his usual numbers, in which case a brilliant series from James would be even less necessary.) But it may well take an individual effort of that magnitude from James for Cleveland to snap its long pro sports title drought. read more

For Ohio State mens basketball Illinois a chance to right your wrongs

Despite a midseason stretch that figured to knock the No. 14 Ohio State men’s basketball team out of the race for the Big Ten crown, the Buckeyes find themselves in a familiar position: on the cusp of their fourth-straight regular season championship. After a four-game winning streak, highlighted by wins against No. 2 Indiana and then-No. 4 ranked Michigan State, OSU (22-7, 12-5 Big Ten) is set to take on Illinois in its regular season finale Sunday at the Schottenstein Center. For the Buckeyes, it might be also be a chance at revenge after the Illini (21-10, 8-9 Big Ten) dominated the Buckeyes, 74-55, on Jan. 5 in Champaign, Ill. “The benefit of playing a team twice is you get to play smarter basketball,” said senior forward Evan Ravenel at a Friday press conference. “You get an opportunity to right your wrongs.” That opportunity comes three weeks after what might’ve been OSU’s lowest point-a 22-point loss against then-No. 20 Wisconsin in Madison, Wis. Despite the setback, OSU coach Thad Matta left his lineup and rotation virtually unchanged. “I think the biggest thing is we didn’t handle that situation well,” Matta said, reflecting on the Wisconsin loss. “We couldn’t stop the ball from rolling.” OSU, though, finds itself with a chance at yet another league title. The game also serves as Senior Day for the Buckeyes’ lone senior, Ravenel. “It’s going to be a bittersweet feeling. I really enjoyed my time here,” Ravenel said. “My time here at Ohio State has been wonderful.” A win Sunday could put the Buckeyes in position to be crowned Big Ten regular season co-champions. Indiana hits the road to take on No. 7 Michigan Sunday and if the Wolverines and Buckeyes win, it would result in a four-way tie for first place in the conference. Ravenel says the team isn’t letting the game in Ann Arbor, Mich., detract from his attention on Illinois, though. “I’m not focused on what everybody else does. I’m just focused on what we do at 12:30 (Sunday’s tipoff),” Ravenel said. Win or lose, the result could carry over positive or negative momentum into the Big Ten tournament, which starts Thursday. As such, Matta said consistent play is the key for a team competing for not just the league’s tournament championship, but also a potential national title. “Slip ups cost you,” Matta said. “The last couple of years we’ve had a bad half of basketball that cost us our season.” OSU is set to take on the Fighting Illini Sunday at 12:30 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

BBC accused of insulting Jews for employing Corbyn cheerleader on Rise of

The BBC was accused of being “downright insulting” to Jews by selecting a Corbynista who endorsed anti-Israel graffiti in the Warsaw ghetto as an expert in a documentary on the Nazis. Leading figures in British Jewry lined up to condemn the choice of Ash Sarkar to participate in BBC2’s flagship, three-part series Rise of the Nazis. Sir Simon Schama, the historian and broadcaster, said  it was “really appalling” that Ms Sarkar appears in the documentary. Marie van der Zyl, Board of Deputies’ President, said: “We would ask the BBC to explain why someone who defended the desecration of a memorial to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising has been invited to speak on a programme about the rise of the Nazis. …

We were the better team – Lopetegui

first_imgReal Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui insists his team were by far the better team during their goalless draw against rivals Atletico Madrid.Both Jan Oblak and Thibaut Courtois stood out in goal for their respective teams but Lopetegui is adamant his team were the better side on the night.Real Madrid went into the game against Diego Simeone charges on the back of a disappointing 3-0 loss away from home to Sevilla on Wednesday and might have suffered a similar fate if not for the heroics of Courtois in goal.The Belgium international was on hand to deny Atletico Madrid duo of Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa when both players were put through on goal, one-on-one win the goalkeeper.Madrid gained some control over the game in the second half, and were much the better side but failed to create meaningful openings to score a goal.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“We were the better team by far, but if you don’t score a goal, then, obviously, you can’t win,” he told reporters, according to Goal.“The goals will come, I don’t have any doubts about that. We created a lot of chances, and if we keep doing that then I’ve no doubt the goals will flow.”“Atletico are a great team. They have joined the elite with some magnificent signings, they’ve a spectacular squad.”“They are contenders to win everything, so I’m happy because we were better than a great team.”The result means Los Blancos have now gone 229 minutes without scoring a goal.last_img read more

Backstage Acquires Musicians Job Board Sonicbids

first_img“Sonicbids is kind of like Backstage but for musicians and it’s like LinkedIn for musicians,” says Amato. “Sonicbids is the number-one platform for bands and some DJs to find gigs. If you were a band you would use Sonicbids to find your next show—it’s a job platform for creative artists.”Backstage has long been used as a resource guide for the acting and modeling community. When the magazine announced the re-launch of its publication in April, and rolled out its redesigned properties in August, a heavy emphasis was placed on career utility. Amato says this type of job board compliments the existing Backstage structure and also expands its scope.“Our goal at Backstage is and always has been to help performing artists get gigs, educate themselves and manage their careers—this is an extension of that,” he says. “We were very narrowly defining performing artist as model, singer and dancer. Now we include musician and that’s really what extends our platform and scale.”The joint reach of the two companies includes 600,000 registered users, with about 60,000 of them being paying subscribers. Amato says that in addition to audience growth and scale, the acquisition helps Backstage stay current among its existing demographic who look toward celebrity culture overall instead of specific niches.“It’d be different if we bought a company that helped scouts find professional athletes. It’s not out of the question, and I am looking at these companies, but (Sonicbids) is the most adjacent business,” adds Amato. “We’re buyers—if it makes sense—so we’re looking at everything. I think that’s a general strategy of the Guggenheim and Backstage family: We’re interested in aggressively pursuing growth.” Stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, follow us on Facebook & Twitter! Backstage, the niche magazine for the acting and modeling community, is expanding its scope with the acquisition of Sonicbids, a social music marketing platform that connects bands, promoters, consumer brands and music fans. This is the first major deal since the parent company of Backstage, Guggenheim Digital Media, changed its name from Prometheus Global Media and tapped former Yahoo! exec Ross Levinsohn as its CEO earlier this month.According to The New York Times, the deal is estimated to be worth $15 million—a number John Amato, chairman and CEO of Backstage Media, declined to confirm.last_img read more
