Kejriwal says Modis nationalism is fake appeals traders not to fall in

first_imgNEW DELHI: A week before the Lok Sabha election in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday took the poll battle to unite the trader community of Delhi. “You have always voted for the BJP but this time I will urge traders to be with us and I promise that I will fight for your causes in every possible way. Modi’s nationalism is fake and do not fall in this trap again” said CM Kejriwal.A large number of Delhi voters belong to the trader community and this has always been a strong voter base of the BJP. However, from the ground reports due to the effect of sealing drive, the community faced troubles with their business.

In a single stroke, demonetisation brought endless miseries to traders. When the traders’ community had barely recovered from this rude shock, the Modi government hastily brought in the GST, which nobody could understand since it was implemented without any proper planning,” he alleged. After note ban, the next jolt came in the form of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) which led to the closure of many shops and factories, causing loss of numerous jobs and heaped miseries on traders, the AAP leader claimed, adding under the Modi government, the traders’ community is feeling “orphaned”.

Now build a relationship with Kejriwal, he will honour the relationship with you till his last breath,” he said. Referring to the violence in Mayapuri on April 13, Kejriwal claimed that the AAP intervened and stopped sealing drive. “Give all the seven Lok Sabha seats (of Delhi) to us, I will ensure that there is no sealing in the national capital. You (traders) strengthen our hands, we will ensure justice,” he said. Around 14 officials were injured after clashes broke out between the security personnel and scrap dealers during the sealing drive in Mayapuri on April 13.last_img read more

As LL Bean cuts costs liberal returns policy could change

FREEPORT, Maine – L.L. Bean is moving to cut costs by freezing pensions and offering voluntary early retirements, and company officials say they are taking a hard look at its generous shipping and return policies.The Freeport-based outdoors retailer will freeze its defined-benefit pension plan and boost its 401(k) savings contributions to all 5,000 workers, including 1,000 out-of-state store employees who were not previously eligible for the full pension, company officials said.It’s part of a broader look at all aspects of the business, company officials said, which could lead to changes that affect shoppers.L.L. Bean currently offers free shipping on everything, and its “satisfaction” guarantee is so liberal that it’s led to abuse of the return policy. Company officials said they will have more to say later this year about shipping and efforts to combat fraudulent returns.The privately held company expects to reduce its workforce by about 500 workers — about 10 per cent — through early retirement incentives, said CEO Steve Smith. Other employment changes include more flexible time off, paid parental leave and paid eldercare support, benefits employees have been seeking, he said.The employment changes were announced by Smith in a memo and in meetings with workers Thursday.The changes, which go into effect next year, were in the works before Smith’s arrival as CEO last year and unwanted publicity surrounding board member Linda Bean’s campaign donations, officials said.Chairman Shawn Gorman, great-grandson of founder L.L. Bean, said such decisions “weigh heavily” on the family-owned business. But he said they’re necessary for the company to remain competitive.“Without a healthy core business, it’s really hard to satisfy any of the stakeholders,” he told The Associated Press. “So the move is designed to get us to a more competitive and modern benefits package that allowed us to be sustainable for the foreseeable future.”The pension move is no big surprise in a challenging retail environment. L.L. Bean’s sales were flat in 2015, and growth for the five years before that was slow.Nationwide, the private sector has been eliminating pensions. In 2015, about one-fifth of Fortune 500 companies offered a traditional or hybrid defined benefit plan to new hires, down from 60 per cent in 1998, according to business consulting firm Willis Towers Watson .Smith said the goal is to return L.L. Bean to the strong growth levels the company experienced in the 1980s and 1990s.“As long as your expenses are growing faster than your sales, then you’re not able to invest in growth,” Smith said. “What we’re focused on is getting to where we’re back in growth mode.” by David Sharp, The Associated Press Posted Feb 9, 2017 12:09 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 9, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email As L.L.

BBC celebrity chef forced to leave his own restaurant over claims he

Dan Doherty, on BBC One’s Britain’s Best Home Cook with Mary Berry But a company insider told The Sunday Times that Mr Doherty left the restaurant voluntarily while the investigation took place and that his new role had nothing to do with limiting his contact with staff.Yesterday, Dave Ahern, the gourmet chef who founded the brand Gastro Punk, said while not condoning the alleged actions, Mr Doherty had been through a tough time, citing a divorce.Mr Doherty did not respond directly to requests from The Telegraph for comment, but a statement from Urban Inns, which runs the gastropub, said: “We take allegations of misconduct in any form very seriously and we used an independent HR company to thoroughly investigate some suggestions of inappropriate communications.”Urban Inns has acted, and continues to do so, on these recommendations, following which Dan returned to work.” A BBC celebrity chef was allegedly forced to leave his own restaurant temporarily over claims that he sexually harassed female staff.Dan Doherty, a judge on BBC One’s Britain’s Best Home Cook with Mary Berry, left his gastropub The Royal Oak in Marylebone, central London, for a month in November after allegations surfaced that he sexually harassed a female staff member, asking her for oral sex.Mr Doherty was also alleged to have told workers that he wanted to see them “without their kitchen whites on”, according to The Sunday Times.Last night the BBC said it was in talks with Mr Doherty, 33, as a result of the allegations but refused to comment when The Telegraph asked if his role in the show would be under review.In a statement, Mr Doherty said: “I would never intentionally make offensive comments to anyone I work with, female or male. I have apologised to the whole team for any offence I may have inadvertently caused. It would never be my intention.” Dan Doherty was a judge on BBC One’s Britain’s Best Home Cook with Mary BerryCredit:BBC screengrab Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Android 24 expected in April with Honeycomb app support

first_imgWith all the talk of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) lately, and its exclusivity for tablets, it’s easy to forget that the 2.X line will continue for smartphones. The latest handsets ship with Android 2.3, but Android 2.4 is only a couple of months away according to manufacturer Viewsonic.Talking to Pocket-lint, the company stated that Android 2.4 will arrive in April and it will ship on Viewsonic’s forthcoming ViewPad 4 smartphone. As to why 2.4 is shipping so soon: it’s all to do with compatibility with Honeycomb-specific apps.AdChoices广告Honeycomb tablets will have dual-core processors and therefore Android 3.0 has to support such chips and apps utilizing both cores. But Android 2.3 and previous versions don’t have such support, so 2.4 is being rushed out to plug that hole. What it means is the Android apps meant for use on a tablet device will run on single-core smartphone processors as long as they are loaded with Android 2.4.What will confuse consumers is that 2.4 will still be classed as Gingerbread which is the name already given to 2.3. The thinking being that 2.4 will quickly replace 2.3 and it’s what 2.3 should have been.So Android 2.4 should be effectively classed as a hotfix for 2.3. As for Ice Cream, there’s suggestions that it’s actually Android 3.1.Read more at Pocket-lintMatthew’s OpinionThis could get confusing fast. It looks as though Android 2.4 is what you want if considering buying a new smartphone in the next couple of months. Otherwise you won’t be able to use some apps meant for Honeycomb on your smartphone. However, to get 2.4 you will have to wait until after April.The big question this throws up is how easy will the upgrade from 2.3 to 2.4 be? Will vendors drag their feet releasing the update to 2.3 users? We suspect the Nexus S will get it quickly, but any new 2.3 smartphones releasing through March and April probably won’t.This news isn’t confirmed by Google, but with the ViewPad 4 expected to arrive at some point in the next few months and shipping with 2.4, it does seem likely to happen.last_img read more

270 Bangladeshi workers cheated

first_imgSome 50 Bangladeshi workers representing 270 victims lodged a police report and held a press conference in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday. — Photo: New Straits TimesA company is believed to have cheated 270 Bangadeshi workers of more than RM2 million and taken their passports, reports New Straits Times.The workers had reportedly approached the company to help them find jobs and apply to the immigration department’s rehiring programme for work permits.Some 50 Bangladeshi workers representing the 270 victims lodged a police report and held a press conference in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, said the newspaper.The Bangladesh workers were said to have asked the authorities to take action against the company and retrieve their passports.One of the victims, Mohamad Alagir, was quoted to have said that most of them started dealing with the company in March last year.He was said to have alleged that the company had asked them to hand over their passports and RM8,000 per head for the application.“The company promised to help us look for jobs and apply for a working permit from the immigration department. However, it is more than a year now and nothing has happened.”According to New Straits Times, Alagir said he and his friends from Johor, Kelantan, Pahang, Selangor, Perak, Penang, Melaka and Negri Sembilan had lodged police reports and filed complaints with the Bangladesh high commission.He told the media that they were living in fear because they did not have their passports and that the company had refused to return their passports.The newspaper quoted another victim, Imran Haz Uzzal, as saying that most of them had worked in Malaysia for more than five years and had entered the country legally through other agents.He was quoted to have said that they started having problems when they approached a company in Bandar Baru Bangi to help them get jobs and renew their working permits.“We hope the authorities will intervene and help us.”last_img read more

S Korea US to suspend major military drills

first_imgU.S. president Donald Trump and North Korea`s leader Kim Jong Un meet in a one-on-one bilateral session at the start of their summit at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa, Singapore 12 June. Photo: AFPSouth Korea and the United States are expected to announce the suspension of “large-scale” military drills this week, with the provision that they would restart if North Korea failed to keep its promise to denuclearise, news agency Yonhap said on Sunday.Citing an unnamed government source, the South Korean news agency said the suspension was likely to affect only major joint exercises, not more routine military training.U.S. president Donald Trump surprised officials in Seoul and Washington when he pledged to end “war games” after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last week.Immediately after the announcement, U.S. forces in Korea said they had received no guidance on stopping any drills, and South Korean officials said they were trying to figure out which exercises Trump was referring to.However, in a sign Seoul may be open to suspending drills, South Korean president Moon Jae-in said on Thursday his government would need to be flexible when it came to applying military pressure on North Korea if it was sincere about denuclearisation.Moon said South Korea would carefully consider joint military drills with the United States and he asked his officials to cooperate with the United States on the issue, his office said in a statement at the time.Yonhap also reported on Sunday that during military talks between the two Koreas on Thursday, South Korean officials asked their northern counterparts to relocate artillery 30 to 40 kilometres away from the heavily fortified military demarcation line that divides the two countries.The South’s defense ministry denied it made such a request, Yonhap said.The talks, the first in more than a decade, held in the border village of Panmunjom in the demilitarised zone (DMZ), followed an inter-Korean summit in April at which leaders of the two Koreas agreed to defuse tensions and cease “all hostile acts”.North and South Korea failed to reach any concrete agreement during those talks, officials said.North Korea proposed to Seoul to disarm, on a trial basis, the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom, the only site in the DMZ where both countries’ soldiers stand almost face to face, the South’s presidential spokesman said on Friday.About 28,500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea, a legacy of the Korean War, which ended in 1953 in an armistice that left the two Koreas technically still at war.At a Senate hearing on Thursday, Trump’s nominee to be ambassador to South Korea, Harry Harris, backed the idea of a “pause” in major military exercises. He said his understanding was that any suspension would involve only major military exercises and that regular training of U.S. forces in South Korea would continue, although final decisions were up to the department of defense.The U.S.-South Korean exercise calendar hits a high point every year with the Foal Eagle and Max Thunder drills, which both wrapped up last month.The next major drill, Ulchi Freedom Guardian, is planned for the end of the summer.Last year, 17,500 American and more than 50,000 South Korean troops participated in the Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills, although the exercise is mostly focused on computerised simulations rather than live field exercises that use weapons, tanks or aircraft.last_img

La Sele takes on Paraguay in a friendly at the National Stadium in western San José on March 5 at 8 p.m. Tickets went on sale this week.Prices for the match range from ₡10,000 ($20) to ₡40,000 ($80). Tickets can be purchased at www.specialticket.net or by calling 2528-8778.Costa Rica has looked miserable in its World Cup warm-ups so far. The team has lost its three friendlies by a combined score of 0-6. But those matches have been played mainly by reserve players, and all took place on the road. Many of Costa Rica’s stars should be suiting up for the Paraguay match, including goalie Keylor Navas who’s breaking records over in Spain’s professional league.The Ticos still have one or two more friendlies to go, but the remaining matches will occur in the United States. Costa Rica has scheduled a showdown against Japan in a yet-to-be-named city in Florida on June 2 and a tentative match against Ghana in Los Angeles at a yet-to-be-determined date in late May. However, Ghana announced last week that it might cancel its match against Costa Rica in favor of more practice.Although Paraguay made the quarterfinals of the World Cup in 2010, the team failed to reach Brazil and finished last among South American teams during qualifying rounds. Therefore, Costa Rica’s top talent will have a strong opportunity to prove itself against a weak South American squad.Costa Rica and Paraguay last met in 2010 in a friendly in Asunción. Paraguay, fresh off its impressive World Cup showing, defeated Costa Rica, 2-0. Costa Rica did not qualify for the 2010 World Cup. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

China concerned about possible US patrols around islands

first_imgSix governments in all claim all or part of the region, which is home to some of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, along with rich fishing grounds and a potential wealth of undersea resources.Chinese officials defend the reclamation, saying it is Beijing’s territory and that the buildings and infrastructure are for public service use and to support fishermen, as well as to assert Chinese sovereignty.It accuses the Philippines, Vietnam and others of carrying out their own building work on other islands.The U.S. says it takes no position on sovereignty claims in the South China Sea, but has an interest in peace and stability in its busy shipping lanes.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvement The Wall Street Journal first reported the remarks out of Washington, citing an anonymous official as saying Defense Secretary Ash Carter had asked for ideas about how to address China’s moves to reinforce islands it occupies in the strategically vital area. Plans under consideration included sending ships and aircraft to within 12 nautical miles of the built-up sites, the report said.While the U.S. military already operates in the South China Sea, crossing the 12 nautical mile (22.2 kilometer) territorial limit around the islands could raise tensions if China chose to respond.“We express serious concern about the U.S. remarks,” Hua told reporters at a daily news briefing.While China’s upholds freedom of navigation in the area, that “doesn’t mean foreign military ships and aircrafts can freely enter into another country’s territorial airspace and seas. China will firmly maintain its territorial sovereignty,” Hua said.China claims virtually the entire South China Sea and its island groups, and has alarmed Washington and its neighbors by embarking on an ambitious island-building program to expand its claims — potentially for military use or airstrips — that has added about 2,000 acres of dry land.
