Mumbai: Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap on Thursday announced that he is starting a new company and working on a new film. “New company, new film, new beginnings,” Kashyap tweeted on Thursday, without elaborating any further. Kashyap was one of the partners of the creative quartet Phantom Films along with Vikramaditya Motwane, Madhu Mantena and Vikas Bahl. The production company was dissolved last year after seven years of partnership. Founded in 2011, Phantom Films produced films like “Queen”, “Masaan”, “Lootera” and “Udta Punjab”. Kashyap recently became a mentor video-on-demand platform myNK to help curate and oversee content. It brings international arthouse films to Indian audiences.
HALIFAX – Two RCMP doctors under police investigation allegedly abused their power over vulnerable young recruits who were “deeply afraid” that speaking out would damage their careers in the national police force, a lawyer who represents RCMP sexual-misconduct victims says.Megan McPhee, a principal with a Toronto-based law firm serving as counsel in a class-action lawsuit, said women have come forward with similar stories about sexual misconduct during medical examinations by RCMP physicians in Nova Scotia and Ontario.“The issues we’re hearing with respect to the Halifax doctor are arising very early in the employment, when there is a potential power imbalance between a doctor and a woman who is trying to fulfil her dream of becoming an RCMP officer,” she said. “Women simply don’t feel comfortable coming forward because they’re so deeply afraid of the impact that speaking out could have on their careers.”The Halifax doctor, nicknamed Dr. Fingers, has been accused of inappropriate and unnecessary vaginal and rectal examinations, while the Toronto doctor was particularly focused on women’s nipples, McPhee said.“We’re hearing from claimants about common practices and nicknames for both a doctor in Halifax and one in Toronto,” she said.The complainants don’t believe there was any medical necessity to some of the examinations, she said.“For example, an allegation of a woman having a prostate exam,” McPhee said. “Other women have expressed having their breasts fondled for lengthy periods of time and it’s difficult to ascribe any sort of medical necessity to that sort of examination.”The allegations against the doctors mirror widespread complaints about sexual harassment in the force that led the federal court to approve a landmark settlement last May.The claims also reflect a broader societal reckoning with male predatory behaviour that has sparked the Me Too movement and toppled powerful men accused of sexual misconduct.“There are lots of organizations where their history and their structure may be set up to enable the sort of things we’ve heard described here, which is the Old Boys Club,” McPhee said. “For us to see change going forward we need to address the Old Boys Club.”She added: “One of the fundamental goals of the settlement, particularly for the class members, is to shine a light on the harassment that has occurred and to address and prevent future harassment so that we don’t see a recurrence. We’re working to make the force a safer place for the generations of women to come.”Halifax police spokeswoman Carol McIsaac said Friday the force has now received 50 complaints from both men and women against a retired doctor in the Halifax suburb of Bedford.Toronto police investigating sexual assault allegations against a retired doctor in the RCMP’s Ontario division would only confirm Friday that they have received “more than one” complaint.“We will not confirm any details of the allegations that have been brought to our attention except to say that they are historic incidents,” Meaghan Gray with the Toronto Police Service said. “Any allegation is being investigated thoroughly and charges will be laid, if appropriate.”McPhee said her law firm has noticed a “significant increase” in the number of women coming forward to share their stories ahead of the class action settlement deadline of Feb. 8.Some of the allegations are “quite disturbing,” she said.“For some it can be very freeing to be sharing a story with somebody, in some cases for the very first time,” McPhee said. “For many of the claimants, filing a claim can be very traumatic because they are reliving and revisiting traumatic events that they may have compartmentalized or buried so that they could try to deal with their everyday lives and be able to function.”The RCMP sexual harassment class action settlement is uncapped. McPhee said all approved claimants will be entitled to receive compensation, regardless of the number of claims approved.
Make-A-Wish will soon be sending a team of fans to the New York City-area in the form of 13 kids with life-threatening medical conditions who wished to attend Super Bowl XLVIII.The wishes are made possible through the generous support of the NFL and others.The young football fans and their families are traveling from ten states and will arrive in New Jersey and New York on Wednesday, Jan. 29. They will enjoy a welcome reception and a weekend of visiting Super Bowl Boulevard and other activities before the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos face off in Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 2.“Our wish kids and their families will have the time of their life as they take part in a weekend of experiences and memories that they can reflect upon long into the future,” said David A. Williams, president and chief executive officer of Make-A-Wish America. “Through these wishes, the NFL is helping us change the lives of kids with life-threatening medical conditions and everyone involved in the wishes, forever.”Wishing to attend the Super Bowl is a wish that continues to transcend generations. This year marks the 32nd consecutive year that a wish kid will be present at the Super Bowl. For the wish kids who will be in attendance, attending the Super Bowl represents their one, heartfelt wish; however, the positive impact of a wish-come-true begins long before kickoff. Wish kids often say the anticipation of their wish helps them find strength to continue medical treatments and the memories of the experience itself serve as a constant source of hope and joy. The NFL, by continuously demonstrating support for Make-A-Wish, helps to make these long-lasting, impactful experiences possible.Make-A-Wish, the NFL, and Super Bowl wishes have a long history. In 1982, the NFL helped Make-A-Wish grant its first Super Bowl wish to a 12-year-old Arizona boy at Super Bowl XVI in Pontiac, Mich., the 9th wish in the organization’s young history. Since then, every Super Bowl has been attended by at least one wish kid; more than 130 Super Bowl wishes have been fulfilled in the last 10 years alone.

HONOLULU — The USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park is undergoing a $20 million revitalization and expansion project to update its Pearl Harbor campus.The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports officials broke ground Monday on the project that includes adding new exhibits and about 3,000 square feet (279 square meters) of space.The facility will be named the Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum when the project is completed in April 2020.Portions of the campus will be closed during construction, but its centerpiece World War II submarine will remain open.The campus is next to the USS Arizona Memorial visitors’ centre operated by the National Park Service.The submarine museum and other non-profit organizations that operate historic sites at Pearl Harbor are providing financial support to keep the centre open during the U.S. government shutdown.___Information from: Honolulu Star-Advertiser, http://www.staradvertiser.comThe Associated Press
“We cannot afford to lose the current moment of opportunity,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a message read on his behalf to the observance of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.“I ask all in the international community to work together to translate the solidarity expressed on this occasion into positive action for peace and justice,” he added.The special meeting held at UN Headquarters comes ahead of the International Day, observed annually on 29 November. The Day marks the date in 1947 when the General Assembly adopted a resolution partitioning then-mandated Palestine into two States, one Jewish and one Arab.“The goal remains clear – an end to the occupation that started in 1967 and the creation of a sovereign, independent, and viable State of Palestine based on the 1967 borders, living side by side in peace with a secure State of Israel,” Mr. Ban stated. “Jerusalem is to emerge from negotiations as the capital of two States, with arrangements for the holy sites acceptable to all. An agreed solution must be found for millions of Palestinian refugees around the region.” Israelis and Palestinians resumed direct negotiations in August, thanks to the efforts of United States Secretary of State John Kerry, following a three-year hiatus owing to Israel’s refusal to extend its freeze on settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territory.After decades of talks and “far too many” adverse developments on the ground, Mr. Ban urged Palestinian and Israeli leaders to take the decisions that will usher in a political solution to this serious and long-standing conflict. The Chair of the General Assembly’s Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, Abdou Salam Diallo, called on the international community to seize “what seems to be one of the last opportunities” to promote a negotiated solution. “Time is running out. The negotiating process is endangered by certain policies and particularly by the ongoing establishment of Jewish settlements,” he told the meeting. Later today, Mr. Diallo will introduce several draft resolutions related to the question of Palestine to the General Assembly, which will be asked to, among other things, declare 2014 as the “International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.” General Assembly President John Ashe welcomed the Committee’s initiative to have 2014 proclaimed as the International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, and called for using it to redouble efforts to create the necessary environment for successful peace talks. “Ongoing peace negotiations must be given a chance for peace to take root and flourish, but peace cannot be meaningful and durable without taking fully into account the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people, which are key to the solution of the Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East.”“I call on the Governments and people of both Israel and Palestine to avoid actions that would undermine the fragile hope created by this renewed round of negotiations, and to cease and desist from any actions that are in contravention to international law and would pose a major impediment to peace in the Middle East and, more importantly, render the two-State solution impossible,” said Mr. Ashe.Speaking on behalf of the UN agency responsible for assisting five million Palestinian refugees, Filippo Grandi said that solidarity – which transcends political and financial support – is crucial because it makes Palestinians feel that they are not alone.Mr. Grandi, the outgoing Commissioner General of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), said his organization is “sadly familiar” with this loneliness, given how closely it works with refugees whose plight has remained unresolved for over six decades.As part of the observance of the International Day, the Palestinian Rights Committee will hold a concert later today featuring two Palestinian singers – Mohammed Assaf, UNRWA Regional Youth Ambassador and Winner of Arab Idol 2013, and Nai Barghouti. The Committee is also screening the documentary film “State 194,” which focuses on former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad’s 2009 plan to demonstrate that his people were deserving of statehood, inspiring them to change their destiny and seek UN membership.
Physalia, un jardin flottant au service des voies fluviales Artiste engagé et architecte écologique, Vincent Callebaut s’est donné le défi de rendre les eaux de navigation plus saines. Un défi gigantesque qu’il concrétise aujourd’hui avec “Physalia”, un prototype architectural visant à conjuguer écologie, économie d’eau et optimisation du réseau fluvial.Ce vaisseau amphibien de Vincent Callebaut, pensé comme un “monstre” mi-aquatique et mi-terrestre, a pour ambition de faire rimer écologie et économie d’eau avec optimisation des voies fluviales. Laboratoire ambulant, “Physalia” se veut un lieu d’investigations, d’initiatives et de recherches en matière de consommation d’eau (économies d’eau, recharge des nappes, maîtrise et recyclage des eaux pluviales, domestiques et industrielles, entre autres). Son système repose sur une structure bionique. Merveille d’architecture par son aspect translucide et sa forme bombée, ce navire, doté de panneaux solaires, est aussi et surtout une belle avancée. Avant-gardiste, “Physalia” est un vaisseau autonettoyant qui, en plus, filtre l’eau fluviale pour la purifier biologiquement, grâce à sa toiture faite de végétaux et décomposée en quatre jardins thématiques. Chacun des espaces est d’ailleurs dédié aux quatre éléments fondamentaux d’un paysage global amphibien. A savoir : l’eau, la terre, le feu et l’air. Le navire accueillerait les visiteurs dans ces jardins. Il y aurait également des espaces de réception, un laboratoire scientifique, un salon sous-marin et un bar à eau.Découvrez toutes les images de ce projet sur Maxisciences.com.Le 10 février 2011 à 15:46 • Emmanuel Perrin
A woman was stabbed late Sunday evening and was in serious condition at a local hospital Monday night, said Sgt. Mike Davis with the Vancouver Police Department.Davis said Monday the woman was stabbed about 11 p.m. Sunday at a Vancouver apartment and police were called to the 1900 block of Carlson Road, south of Fourth Plain Boulevard and west of Andresen Road. Police are asking anyone who knows the whereabouts of the suspect, Carlos Roman, 19, also known as Carlos Cruz Roman, to call 911. People with information may request to remain anonymous, Davis said.Carlos Roman has an unrelated felony warrant in Oregon and unrelated misdemeanor warrants in Washington, Davis said. He is 5 foot 4 inches tall, 160 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of the word ” Carlitos” on the right side of his neck. Domestic Violence Unit detectives are investigating.
MIAMI SPRINGS, FLA. (WSVN) – Two men are behind bars after a chase ended in a police-involved shooting in Miami Springs, Wednesday afternoon.According to Hialeah Police, two of their undercover detectives were conducting a surveillance of two men suspected of burglary. They followed the subjects to Miami Springs where, detectives said, the men broke into a home on the 1200 block of Partridge Avenue.As the subjects started to drive away, police said, the detectives attempted to stop their vehicle, but the subjects refused and almost ran over one of the law enforcers, who was standing outside his police vehicle. The detective then opened fire, striking both subjects, but they still managed to drive away.However, investigators said, they didn’t get very far. A 7News viewer captured both men being apprehended a few miles away, in Virginia Gardens.Though they were hospitalized, the subjects’ injuries were not life-threatening. No one else was hurt.Thursday afternoon, one of the subjects, identified as 22-year-old Francisco Guerra, appeared in bond court, but his hearing was postponed until Friday.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Shortly thereafter, I received a call from ABM, which was upset about the word “cancelation.”This is not a cancelation, they said. We are just moving locations (to ABM’s offices), shortening it (to a half-day) and are going to broadcast the sessions on the Web, they said. This way, we will be able to reach thousands of people on the Web instead of a few hundred—around the globe!—they said. More than a few phone calls and e-mails later, reluctantly, I changed the headline to this:ABM Digital Event DownsizedTwo-day event now half-day, held in association’s conference room.Still, I’m not convinced.When a publishing conference goes from a 250-attendee, two-day event to a half-day series of Webcasts, produced in a conference room, with less than 50 live attendees expected, can you really call it a “conference”?ABM can. I can’t.And I don’t get it. What’s wrong with saying your publishing event is cancelled? In this economy, it’s not like it’s a surprise, or an embarrassment. It’s reality.The same goes for the sugarcoat-y spin the MPA and ABM try to put on their on monthly advertising figures (“Welcome to the Magazine Spin Zone”). It’s like listening to an Alex Rodriguez press conference—in press release form. More than that, I think what the MPA and ABM are doing is smart: trying to salvage something of value for their members in what’s becoming a brutal, brutal year in magazine publishing.Just call it what it is. On Wednesday afternoon, I was told by a publishing CEO that American Business Media’s Digital Velocity conference, scheduled for March 3-4 at McGraw-Hill’s Conference Center in New York, had been cancelled. Thinking this was an important story—given the cancellation of the American Magazine Conference the week before—I shot an e-mail to ABM and called a couple of the event’s organizers. No response. Our publisher e-mailed three of the event’s scheduled speakers. Each wrote back saying the event was cancelled; two added they were told ABM was “working on a way to recreate the content as a series of Webinars.” Meanwhile, a couple of the event’s exhibitors said that they were told not to send their booths to New York.On Thursday morning, we posted a story with this headline:ABM Cancels Digital ConferenceSecond publishing association event pulled within week.
To highlight the need to commit more spending to expand the Navy’s fleet, the House Armed Services Committee plans to hold a hearing aboard the USS Eisenhower at Norfolk Naval Station later this month.“The Navy’s readiness and force structure shortfalls are real and dangerous,” Randy Forbes (R-Va.), chair of the committee’s Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, told Stars and Stripes.“We are seeing the shrinking fleet directly impact the readiness of our sailors. Fewer ships and growing threats mean longer deployments and greater strain on sailors and their families,” Forbes said.Holding a hearing aboard an aircraft carrier appears to be a first, according to congressional staff. Forbes said holding the hearing outside of Washington will allow lawmakers to gather the “unvarnished opinions” of Navy leaders. Several Navy captains — along with Adm. Phil Davidson, commander of Fleet Forces Command — are expected to deliver testimony.Forbes has criticized the Obama administration for the state of Navy readiness and the inadequate 272-ship Navy. Forbes has called for bolstering the fleet to 350 ships and recommended increasing the Pentagon’s budget request for shipbuilding by $2.3 billion to $20.6 billion in the fiscal 2017 defense authorization bill. That would represent the highest level of funding authorized for shipbuilding since the end of the Cold War, he said.A bigger Navy also has become central to Forbes’ re-election bid in southern Virginia, according to the story.

New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern, right, with her partner Clarke Gayford, holds their newly born baby girl, Neve, at Auckland Hospital on Sunday, 24 June 2018. Ardern made her first public appearance on Sunday since giving birth to her daughter on Thursday. Ardern is just the second elected world leader to give birth while holding office. Photo: APNew Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern and her partner Clarke Gayford have named their baby daughter Neve and say they want her to grow up in a world in which she can make choices about her family and career based on what she wants.Ardern made her first public appearance on Sunday since giving birth to her daughter on Thursday.She answered a few questions from reporters while holding her baby at Auckland City Hospital before she planned on returning home. She will take six weeks of leave before returning to work.Ardern is just the second elected world leader to give birth while holding office. Many hope the 37-year-old will become a role model for combining motherhood with political leadership.She said the couple struggled for months trying to choose a name and decided to wait until the baby was born to figure out which one fitted best. The baby’s full name is Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford.Ardern said Neve means “bright” and “radiant” as well as “snow,” which was fitting because the baby was born on the Southern Hemisphere’s winter solstice. Te Aroha means “love” in New Zealand’s indigenous Maori language, and Ardern said that name reflected the amount of love and generosity that people had shown the couple even before the baby arrived.She said she hoped that one day having a baby while leading a country would not be seen as a novelty.”So I hope for little girls and boys that actually there’s a future where they can make choices about how they raise their family and what kind of career they have that are based on what they want and what makes them happy,” she said. “Simple.”She said that having a child would likely make her view the world differently and enhance political views that were already focused on children.The last leader to give birth while holding office was late Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who had Bakhtawar in 1990.New Zealand’s Deputy prime minister Winston Peters has taken over as the acting prime minister until Ardern returns to work.Ardern said that while she is on leave, she would be finding her way as a new parent.”We’ll do what every other parent does and learn the little nuances of the way that Neve wants to work,” she said. “And just figure things out as we go.”
“It is learned from relevant Chinese competent departments that, as planned, the land reclamation project of China’s construction on some stationed islands and reefs of the Nansha Islands will be completed in the upcoming days,” the statement said, using the Chinese term for the Spratly islands, which lie at the heart of the South China Sea territorial dispute.Apart from satisfying defense goals, it said the main purpose of such projects was civilian in nature and not targeted at any third parties. It said the projects fell within the scope of Chinese sovereignty and were “lawful, reasonable and justified,” while causing no harm to the marine environment.The statement, attributed to ministry spokesman Lu Kang, said the projects “do not affect the freedom of navigation and overflight enjoyed by all countries in accordance with international law in the South China Sea.”That assertion will likely be scrutinized by the U.S. military following an incident last month during which a U.S. Navy plane flying near one of the reclaimed islands was repeatedly challenged by the Chinese military and told to leave the area.The disputed islands lie amid some of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, rich fishing grounds and a potential undersea wealth of oil, gas and minerals. China claims virtually the entire South China Sea, while Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and Taiwan also they own parts or all of it. Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Comments Share The U.S. says it takes no side on the sovereignty questions, but insists on the right of free navigation and urges all parties to negotiate a settlement.The reclamation work has sparked fears China will use the artificial islands as military bases and to assert control over navigation in the South China Sea.According to the U.S., Beijing’s building program on reefs and atolls now totals more than 2,000 acres (800 hectares) and includes up to two airstrips capable of handling large military planes.The announcement is a sign of transparency showing that China is proceeding according to its pre-established schedule, said Ruan Zongze, of the Foreign Ministry think tank China Institute of International Studies, speaking on state broadcaster CCTV.“China is showing that it has its own timetable,” Ruan said.That could be an attempt to reassure others that the projects are not open-ended, in hopes of limiting the damage to China’s relations with its neighbors.Beijing attempted to keep the issue out of the headlines during a low-key visit to Washington this month by Defense Minister Fan Changlong, during which Defense Secretary Ash Carter called on China and others to “implement a lasting halt on land reclamation” and cease further militarization. Vietnam, with whom China has clashed bitterly over the Spratlys and other islands, is sending its defense minister to Beijing this week for talks.China also does not want the issue to overshadow President Xi Jinping’s state visit to Washington in September.Copyright © The Associated Press.
