first_imgJune 4, 2014 zoom Wavelink Maritime Institute, a training arm of the Singapore Maritime Officers’ Union (SMOU), has launched a new maritime simulation centre powered by Transas simulators.  SMOU is one of the first maritime institutes in Singapore to house four different types of simulators in one location.The centre, which costs $4 million, has a class of 16 workstations to train ECDIS operations. The main bridge with 240° visualisation and secondary bridge with 120° visualisation are based on the latest Transas NTPRO 5000 software and will be used for ship handling training and certification.An integrated Engine room and liquid cargo simulator class of 20 workstations powered by the Transas ERS 5000 / LCHS5000 software will contribute to training of engineering watchkeeping personnel.The new advanced simulator centre will enhance training of maritime cadets and officers by providing an ultimate hands-on experience in compliance with international standards. This is one of the steps the Singapore Maritime Officers’ Union undertakes in order that more Singaporeans will consider seafaring as a career. The simulators will greatly enhance the quality of training and will make the Wavelink Maritime Institute graduates competitive in their careers.SMOU General Secretary Mary Liew said during the opening: “Traditionally, seafaring skills are very much time-based learning, that is the longer you work onboard a ship, the better skills you have. But now with simulation training, the cadets and officers’ skills are accelerated with real-time feedback in a risk-free environment. Thus, they become better officers, have better jobs and better lives. It is a win-win situation for them as well as the shipping companies.”Transas Marine Simulation Business Division Andrey Sitkov mentioned: “We are confident that the quality of Transas simulation solutions will greatly contribute to the challenging task of attracting more Singaporeans to the maritime industry and increasing the safety of navigation in the end.”last_img read more

A combined investigation team of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) quizzed Maryam for an hour at its provincial headquarters in Lahore.

first_imgHisar (Haryana): Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday hit out at the Congress over its poll promise of reviewing the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) and repealing the sedition law. The Haryana chief minister blamed the country’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru for the Kashmir problem. Calling the Congress’ poll manifesto a “Dhakosla patra” (sham manifesto), Khattar, addressing a public meeting at Kaimri in the district, questioned the opposition party’s promise of reviewing AFSPA. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ He said after the Pulwama terror attack in February, which left 40 CRPF personnel dead, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given a free hand to the defence forces to give a befitting reply to the militants. He said, today, anyone who looks at India with an evil eye is made to pay in the same coin. On the other hand, the Congress is promising to review AFSPA and repeal sedition law, he said. “They said they will repeal the sedition law. Those who raise slogans like ‘Bharat tere tukde tukde honge’ (India will disintegrate), will go scot-free. Can we allow this to happen?,” he said, adding many sacrifices have been made to safeguard India and such decisions could undo the armed forces’ good work. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K “Do you care for the human rights of those who give their lives for this nation or those who talk about its disintegration,” he asked. Blaming Nehru for the Kashmir crisis, Khattar said, “Had Sardar Vallabhai Patel been prime minister after Independence there would have been no place for terrorism in Kashmir. “These mistakes were committed by the Congress, which we have to bear today. Now if son-of-the-soil Narendra Modi has come forward to rectify these mistakes, there is talk of human rights violation. If anyone talks about the country’s division and raises slogans, is this human right? Congress has failed to understand this,” he said. “When Rahul Gandhi was asked on whose suggestion they (his party) had incorporated such things in the manifesto (review of AFSPA and repealing of sedition law), he said it was done on the suggestion of surgical strike hero Lt General D S Hooda (retd), but General Hooda has refused any knowledge on this,” Khattar claimed. The world has recognised India as an emerging superpower, he said. “Had Congress been at the helm, neither the 1998 Pokhran nuclear test would have been conducted nor the anti-satellite missile test.” On the Congress’ proposed minimum income scheme ‘NYAY’, Khattar said, “From pandit Nehru to Indira Gandhi to Rajiv Gandhi, promises to eliminate poverty were made before. Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s ‘NYAY’ is one more lie in the series.” He lauded the Modi government for introducing several schemes for the poor, weaker sections and farmers. Khattar claimed the law and order situation had improved in the state after the BJP government formed the government. The present government has given 60,000 jobs out of the 74,000 advertised earlier, all of which were given in a transparent manner on merit as against favouritism which prevailed earlier, said Khattar. Mocking the Haryana Congress’ ‘parivartan yatra’, Khattar said, “Earlier, several Congress men were fighting for the chief ministerial post. After the week-long ‘parivartan yatra’, the Congress Legislative Party leader (Kiran Choudhary) has staked claim for Leader of Opposition (LoP) post, but their party’s state unit chief is saying he will decide (on the matter). Now, they are fighting for the LoP post,” he said.last_img read more

“I can’t think of any country in the world in which children suffer more than in Afghanistan,” Radhika Coomaraswamy, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, told a news conference in Kabul. “Because you not only have the terrible violations that occur during war but also the terrible poverty and hard work that they have to engage in.” During her visit the Special Representative met with President Hamid Karzai and other government officials, as well as representatives of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) military forces, aid agencies, Afghan, international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and children themselves.Ms. Coomaraswamy said one of the grave violations against children in armed conflict is killing and maiming, and during her visit she met with many victims of attacks by the Taliban and other anti-Government elements.She also met victims of the operations by the international forces, including children who had been maimed by aerial bombardment and night raids. “We had discussions with ISAF [International Security Assistance Force] and OEF [Operation Enduring Freedom] commanders on how they should minimize this collateral damage with clear directions and procedures.“It is important to put in place measures to prevent the excesses, to have prompt investigations and where necessary to pay adequate compensation,” she stated.The Special Representative voiced concern over the recruitment and use of children as combatants, saying she had credible information that there has been an increase in the number of children in combat in the last few months, as well as verified reports of individual cases of suicide bombers. “This is a terrible situation and we hope that action will be taken by everyone to help eradicate this,” she stressed, urging all parties, especially the anti-Government elements, to begin to take action to prevent children from being used on the battlefield.Having received reports that there are children associated with the Afghan police force in different parts of the country, Ms. Coomaraswamy also had discussions with the Ministry of Interior and the National Directorate of Security to address this situation.Another concern in Afghanistan is children who are detained after military operations. While she received exact figures from ISAF, she does not know exactly how many minors are being detained by the Afghan authorities or the American forces.“No one seems clear about the guidelines or the standard operating procedures in this regard,” she noted.“As we know from other areas in the world, keeping young people in detention often makes them into hardened individuals and only feeds the cycle of violence,” she added.Afghanistan has also witnessed numerous attacks on schools, resulting in the deaths of innocent students and teachers. Some 228 schools were attacked in 2007 with 75 deaths and 111 injured. So far this year 83 schools have been attacked.The Special Representative also received allegations of sexual violence against boys. “Afghan civil society is particularly concerned about what has been called the Bacha-bazi system or practice for young boys associated with military commanders. This practice has to be eradicated as it is against international humanitarian law,” she stressed.Ms. Coomaraswamy highlighted the need to address the issue of impunity for violence against children. “People continue to violate children’s rights without any sense of feeling that they will be held accountable,” she stated, stressing the need to strengthen the justice system so that cases can be brought to court.One of the major objectives of Ms. Coomaraswamy’s visit was to set in place the monitoring and reporting process called for by the Security Council in resolution 1612 (2005) to assess six grave violations against children in situations of armed conflict.They are the killing or maiming of children, recruitment or use of children as soldiers, rape and other grave sexual abuse of children, abduction of children, attacks against schools or hospitals, and denial of humanitarian access for children.The monitoring and reporting mechanism – which sets up a task force at the country level, led by the UN, but including independent NGOs and independent government institutions – will feed into a comprehensive report on the situation of children and armed conflict in Afghanistan that will be presented to the Security Council in October. 3 July 2008The ongoing violence in Afghanistan is taking a heavy toll on the nation’s children, who continue to be the victims of attacks, recruited and used as combatants and sexually abused, the United Nations envoy for children and armed conflict said today at the end of a five-day visit. read more

first_imgDefendants from top left: Mohammed Whied, Waleed Ali, Asif Ali, Sageer Hussain, Ishtiaq Khaliq, Basharat Hussain, Masoued Malik and Naeem RafiqCredit:South Yorkshire Police/PA Hussain, 30, of Rotherham, was convicted of four rapes and one indecent assault.Mohammed Whied, 32, of Rotherham, was found guilty of one count of aiding and abetting rape.Ishtiaq Khaliq, 33, of Rotherham, was found guilty of one rape and three indecent assaults.Waleed Ali, 34, of Rotherham, was found guilty of one rape and one indecent assault.Asif Ali, 30, of Rotherham, was convicted of one rape.Masoued Malik, 32, of Rotherham, was found guilty of one rape, one count of conspiracy to commit indecent assault and one of false imprisonment.Basharat Hussain, 40, of Goole, was convicted of one indecent assault.And Naeem Rafiq, 33, of Rotherham, was convicted of one count of conspiracy to commit indecent assault and one of false imprisonment.An official inquiry into exploitation in Rotherham in 2014 by Professor Alexis Jay concluded that at least 1,400 children had been raped, trafficked and attacked between 1997 and 2013 by gangs of largely Asian men, and that the victims were effectively ignored.Speaking after the verdicts last month, Detective Chief Inspector Martin Tate said: “The verdicts today are of massive importance to the young women who have come forward to report years of horrific sexual abuse at the hands of these criminals.”They had to endure what no child should and have shown remarkable bravery throughout our inquiry.”He said: “I am so grateful to these women, many of whom remain incredibly vulnerable, for offering their support to our investigative team and I am so pleased that their voices have been heard and their abusers have been held to account for their vile crimes.” Michelle Colborne QC, prosecuting, told the jury the girl, now in her late 20s, and her family withdrew the allegations due to threats.But the court was also told that police lost the girl’s clothes without carrying out any forensic analysis.The family tried to get help from social services as well and took the girl out of school before eventually moving abroad.Ms Colborne said the court case was about three victims “who were sexualised and, in some instances, subjected to acts of a degrading and violent nature at the hands of these men”.She said Hussain played a “key role” and was “instrumental in befriending young girls who were flattered that he and his friends spent time with them”. They were then exploited by Hussain, his friends and associates. Rotherham defendants Eight men have been sentenced for up to 19-years each for sexually exploiting teenage girls in Rotherham.A month-long trial at Sheffield Crown Court heard how the men “sexualised” their victims and, in some instances, subjected them to acts of a “degrading and violent nature”.One girl and her family told police, their MP and the then home secretary David Blunkett about the abuse and eventually moved to Spain to get away from the men.The court heard that this victim had gone to the police in 2003, saying she had been repeatedly raped by Sageer Hussain when she was 13.

He credits his long-running success to making a decision early on about what he wanted to do with his life, and then dedicating all of his energy to pursuing that goal. As he makes plans for his new 2019 world tour, he’s decided he wants to pass along that same motivation for success to his fans.In an intriguing departure from the normal practice of tapping a handful of up and coming performers to accompany him as support acts for his new tour, Pitbull has instead chosen to reach out to famous motivational speaker and life coach Tony Robbins.Details regarding Robbins exact role on the tour, or whether he will be present for all show dates are still forthcoming, but Pitbull explained to Billboard in a recent interview that his family has been close allies of the “mahatma of motivation,” for most of his life, saying, “My mother looked at him as a hero [when I was about 10 years old].”  Robbins was also present at the dedication ceremony when Pitbull received his official star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 2016.”His life could’ve been completely different,” Robbins said of Pitbull’s success. “At 17, he did the most important thing that any of us could do … he decided what life was going to be about.””I’m just being a revolutionary to wake everybody else [up],” said Pitbull of his decision to include a renowned motivational speaker as part of his new tour. “Music brings everybody together.”Details regarding tickets and show dates for Pitbull’s upcoming 2019 world tour are still forthcoming.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

These include Deemo Reborn, Last Strand, and Merkava Avalanche. The latter two are set to release on multiple platforms. Deemo Reborn is going to have PlayStation VR support on PS4. None of these games have release dates at the moment.AdChoices广告This is the first time Sony and Nintendo have collaborated like this in 26 years. For those who may not know, Sony was originally going to create a CD add-on for the Super Nintendo. The “Nintendo PlayStation” never made it to market after Sony and Nintendo severed ties, so it’s interesting to see the two work together like this so many years later. Seeing Sony games on PC isn’t as wild, however. The company released titles such as Planetside 2 and Payday: The Heist on PC through Sony Online Entertainment (now known as Daybreak Entertainment).Given the popularity of indie games, it makes sense that Sony would invest in them. It’s unclear why Unties isn’t under Sony Interactive Entertainment. Perhaps Sony simply wants to avoid confusion by having Unties be its own thing and not directly tied to PlayStation.As for “Unties,” perhaps a slight name change is in order. I know I’m not the only one who thought of underwear when first reading that moniker.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
