first_imgMumbai: The rupee on Monday crashed by 113 paise — the biggest single-day drop in past six years — to close at a five-month low of 70.73 due to heavy capital outflows by investors anxious over the US-China trade tension, a sharp devaluation in yuan and uncertainty over Kashmir issue. This was the third straight session of fall for the rupee, during which it lost a massive 194 paise. The US-China trade-related concerns weighed on the investor community and kept the pressure on the Indian rupee, forex traders said.

The INR should also mirror some of the same weakness and FPIs may continue their dumping spree of Indian assets resulting in a bleak near term outlook for the INR,” he projected. In a highly volatile trade, the rupee opened at 70.20 at the interbank forex market and touched a low of 70.74 and a high of 70.18 against the American currency. The currency finally settled at 70.73 against the US dollar — a level not seen since March 1 — down 113 paise or 1.62 per cent over its previous closing price. This is the highest single-day fall for the rupee since August 2013. Traders said the near term focus will be on the RBI’s monetary policy meeting scheduled to announce outcome on August 7th. The market has already priced in 25 bps cut in interest rate amid lower core CPI and persistent economic slowdown. “Meanwhile, this week is the RBI policy. Widely, RBI is expected to cut rates further by 25 bps and continue to hold the accommodative stance which will weigh on rupee,” Gupta said. Forex traders said, besides the US-China trade-related concerns, Home Minister Amit Shah moving a resolution in the Rajya Sabha that all clauses of Article 370 will not be applicable to Jammu and Kashmir kept the pressure on the Indian rupee. The government on Monday moved a bill proposing bifurcation of the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories — Jammu and Kashmir division and Ladakh. However, easing crude oil prices and weakening of the American currency vis-a-vis other currencies overseas supported the local unit to some extent. Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, fell 1.18 per cent to $61.16 per barrel. The dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, fell 0.39 per cent to 97.69. Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) remained net sellers in the capital markets, pulling out Rs 2,016 crore on Monday, as per provisional data.last_img read more

first_imgREGINA – A clinical psychologist says a young man who killed his teenage girlfriend when he was 16 does not meet the criteria for psychopathy.Hannah Leflar was also 16 when she was repeatedly stabbed with a hunting knife in her Regina home in January 2015.The Crown is seeking an adult sentence for her killer, now 19, who pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.Dr. Terry Nicholaichuk, who met with the youth three times and wrote two reports, appeared for the defence at the stabber’s sentencing hearing.He told court the teen meets some of the criteria for borderline personality disorder and probably has a major depressive disorder.Last week, during the Crown’s presentation, a psychiatrist testified that the teen showed psychopathic tendencies and has anger management issues.It also heard from a girl who became friends with the youth. She tearfully testified that he told her months before the stabbing that he wanted to become a serial killer and do away with his former girlfriend.Online messages also talked about hurting Leflar.Court was told earlier this week that the teen has spent more than two years at the Paul Dojack Youth Centre where he was bullied throughout most of his first year there.The centre’s deputy director testified the youth often talked of self-harm, although there is only one documented instance.He also said the young man has been more engaged in recent months, was awarded a most-improved education certificate and has changed some of his behaviour, although he remains isolated and engages in lone activities such as video games.An agreed statement of facts says the youth stalked Leflar for months after she broke up with him and hatched a plan to attack her and her new boyfriend with bats and knives.That didn’t happen, largely because Leflar broke up with that boy, but when she posted about her latest relationship on Facebook, her old boyfriend murdered her.A second teen pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is expected to be sentenced in September.(CTV Regina, The Canadian Press)last_img read more

MONTREAL — Dare Foods says it will close a cookie-making plant on the south shore of Montreal by mid-2020 in a move that will affect about 275 employees.The Ontario-based company said Thursday that it told employees the production of soft cookies would be moved to other facilities across the country.Spokesman Marc Duchesne says the plant in St-Lambert, Que., can’t be expanded or modernized because it is “landlocked” near residential and commercial areas.He added that retention bonuses, performance payments and severance will exceed the requirements of the collective agreement and the provincial labour law.The plant in Sainte-Martine that makes toasted snack foods and has about 120 employees is unaffected.Dare owns the Whippet, Breton and Grissol brands.The Canadian Press read more

The amount of new measures deployed by countries to protect their industries from dumping also increased between January and the end of June this year, according to a press release issued by the WTO’s Secretariat in Geneva.Some 16 members of WTO initiated 85 new investigations in the first six months of this year, compared to 61 investigations in the corresponding period last year – a 39 per cent jump, the organization noted.The statistics were released at a time of mounting international concern and tension – particularly from senior United Nations officials, including Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon – about the so-called Doha round of trade liberalization talks, which have stalled.Dumping occurs when a manufacturer in one country exports a product to another at a price either below the price it charges in the home country or below its cost of production.The most investigations were into alleged dumping of products in the base metal sector (21 initiations), followed by textiles (20 initiations) and chemicals (10 initiations).Turkey recorded the highest number of initiations, with 13, followed by the United States, India, Argentina, the European Communities, Brazil, Australia and Colombia.China was the most frequent subject of new investigations, with 37 – or nearly half the entire total – directed at its exports. Thailand was the subject of seven investigations, and the European Communities and Indonesia were each the subject of five. 20 October 2008The number of investigations into the practice of dumping, or exporting a product at an unfairly low price, surged in the first half of this year, the World Trade Organization (WTO) reported today. read more

The United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan has dispatched a former Prime Minister of Côte d’Ivoire, Seydou Diarra, to Cameroon as his Special Envoy for the country’s upcoming elections.According to a UN spokesman, Mr. Diarra “will convey the Secretary-General’s personal and the United Nations’ continued support for Cameroon’s efforts towards democratization and appeal to all political parties to carry out the elections in a smooth and transparent manner.”Mr. Diarra, who will stay in Cameroon until 25 June, will also invite political parties and other national stakeholders to address the country’s complex problems peacefully, spokesman Fred Eckhard added.Last month, Cameroonian President Paul Biya requested that the Secretary-General send UN observers to monitor the legislative and municipal elections scheduled for 23 June. Mr. Annan then proposed dispatching a Special Envoy, in order to avoid a total political absence of the UN during the crucial ballot in a country where he has strongly encouraged peaceful political means to resolve differences, according to the spokesman’s office. read more

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Netflix’s groundbreaking “House of Cards” may be the first digital series nominated for a best drama Emmy. But it will start with a Webby.The Webby Awards are honouring “House of Cards” producers Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti with a Webby special achievement award. The political thriller, for which Netflix released all 13 episodes at once, proved that digital media can produce cable-quality drama. Netflix also won for best streaming media site.The 17th annual Webbys, which celebrate Internet achievement, are to be officially announced Tuesday. Winners range from Justin Bieber (for the social media campaign for his fragrance launch) to The Onion (now with a record 19 total Webbys) to Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight blog for The New York Times.The Webby person of the year is Frank Ocean, the R&B singer, whom the Webbys hailed “for proving the power of the Web as a medium for cultural change when he announced his bisexuality to his Tumblr community.”Singled out for outstanding comedic performance is Jerry Seinfeld, whose 10-episode Web series “Comedian in Cars Getting Coffee” showcased the “Seinfeld” star hanging out with comedian friends.Webby categories are split into a regular award, chosen by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, and a “people’s voice” award. The Australian rail safety public service campaign Dumb Ways to Die, which went viral, is an unlikely awards leader with seven Webbys.GIF file inventor Steve Wilhite also will be honoured with a lifetime achievement award. While working at CompuServe in the 1980s, Wilhite created the compressed 8-bit GIF (or Graphics Interchange Format) that remains a popular tool for lo-fi viral sharing.Another special achievement award will go to President Barack Obama’s election campaign for its use of technology in last year’s presidential election. Claire Boucher, the Canadian synth-pop singer who performs under the name Grimes, is the Webby’s artist of the year.Other winners include HBO Go (four awards, including best media streaming service), Lady Gaga (for best celebrity-fan social presence), Conan O’Brien (for best celebrity-fan website) and The New York Times (best news social presence).

Ohio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop (33) attempts a 3-pointer in the first half of the game against Rutgers on Feb. 20. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State has not been a team that relies on 3-point shooting this season.Its offensive strength has come from the ability of its forwards to find space inside and to outscore opponents by significant margins in the paint. The Buckeyes strayed from that identity Thursday, however, attempting 40 triples in their game against South Dakota State. They tried to live and die by the 3. They nearly died.Despite the fact its inefficient 3-point shooting nearly cost Ohio State the game, the team might have to go back to that strategy and hope for more success when the fifth-seeded Buckeyes return to the court Saturday to face fourth-seeded Gonzaga.The Bulldogs are a team without many clear flaws. Gonzaga is bigger than Ohio State and is one of the best post teams in the nation — both offensively and defensively. It has the sixth-best rebounding margin of any team in the nation and averages the 12th-most points per game and 48th-fewest points allowed. There is one potential weakness Ohio State can exploit: Gonzaga’s struggles defending shots from long range.The Bulldogs have allowed opposing teams to make 34.9 percent of shots from 3 this season, 164th in the nation. In all but one of its four losses, Gonzaga allowed teams to make at least 47 percent of 3-point attempts.Despite Gonzaga’s issues defending triples, teams have not always tried to bludgeon them from beyond the arc. No team has attempted as many as the 40 shots from 3 Ohio State attempted Thursday, and only six times have opponents even attempted at least 25 3s.That strategy was not lost on Ohio State in the first matchup. The Buckeyes attempted 20 shots from 3, but only six landed. At times, Ohio State has been a strong 3-point shooting team. At others, it has not. It has made over 40 percent of 3s in 10 of its 33 games and has four times reached double-digit makes. However, nine times this season Ohio State has made fewer than 30 percent of 3s and three times fewer than 20 percent. This inconsistent shooting trend was perfectly exemplified during its first-round matchup with South Dakota State. Ohio State made just two of its first nine attempts from beyond the arc before knocking down six of its next eight attempts from long range. The Buckeyes made just four of their final 23 3-point shots.The one constant between a majority of the attempts was that South Dakota State tended to ease off the Buckeyes and allow them to attempt the 3s. The Jackrabbits seemed comfortable letting Ohio State rattle off 40 shots — a strategy that seemed to work with Ohio State missing 28 of them. Part of the reason Ohio State might have been shooting so frequently from 3 against South Dakota State is because the Jackrabbits are a group that thrives using that offensive style. They attempted 31 3s with 13 makes in the game, leading to a tie for the most 3-point attempts by two teams in an NCAA Tournament game. This season, their 39.3 3-point make percentage ranks 25th in the nation.When faced off against an opponent that likes to attempt a lot of 3s, Ohio State has often tried to mirror the approach.While it won’t be facing a team that lives and dies by the 3, Ohio State will need to be ready for an opponent that can score from deep if given the chance. Gonzaga has made 37 percent of 3-point shots, but relies more heavily on its post play to pick up points. The team has reached double-digit made-3-pointers in 16 of its 35 games and finds that 32 percent of its total points come from 3s, just slightly more than the average team in the country.Ohio State will not need to be making 3s to keep up with another team that will be shooting them all night. But Gonzaga’s offense is one that will be tough to slow down inside and can burn the team outside as well. The Buckeyes can’t afford to abandon their 3-point shooting. Facing a team like Gonzaga that is so strong inside defensively and can be beat from long range, making 3s will be a critical part of scoring. However, Gonzaga is so efficient offensively that the Buckeyes can’t have another game where they miss 28 3-pointers. Against the 12th-seeded Jackrabbits, the Buckeyes can live missing wide-open 3s.It won’t if that happens again Saturday against Gonzaga. read more

Emphasising that the Queen, as head of Commonwealth, would be paying attention to the outcome of the meetings, the Countess told an audience: “Today I bring you special greetings from Her Majesty The Queen, who is delighted this meeting is convening once again and, as you would expect, I am honour bound to return with a good account of the full and productive outcomes of this conference, particularly as an important precursor to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Rwanda next year.” Sophie, Countess of Wessex, rrives at the RefuSHE Girls Empowerment Program and Artisan Collective in Nairobi While the Countess, Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Sussex have recently spoken of gender inequality in public, the speech is a rare example of a member of the Royal Family using the word “feminist” in a major public address.

Jarju, the Alkalo of Babylon Village in Kombo North District – West Coast Region of the Gambia in 2012.“My husband began to develop the land in 2012 but he fell sick and decided to go back to his home village of Boro Kunda Kassay,” she said.Madam Jagne said her husband (Jallow) later visited the said plot of land and found one Nabi Camara constructing a structure on the same piece of land. She added her husband discovered that his building has been demolished.“My husband then decided to resort to the Brikama Magistrate’s Court on the 20th day of January 2018 for justice to be served. The court delivered judgment on the 26th June 2019 and gave possession of the land to my husband and he commenced work on the land after the judgment was delivered,” she said.She said her husband was then attacked by some men who claimed to be working on the order of the District Chief, Mr. Momodou Bojang.According to her, Jallow was detained briefly at the Mandinary Police Station before he was transferred to Mile II, the State Central Prison.Madam Jagne said the family has contacted Magistrate A.B.

(Thania Sanchez via AP) A 20-year-old man whose pickup collided with a church minibus last month in rural Texas, killing 13 people, told state troopers he had taken prescription medication before driving and had marijuana in his truck, according to court records.The records obtained from Uvalde County showed a state trooper found two whole marijuana cigarettes and five partially smoked ones in Jack Dillon Young’s truck after the March 29 crash that happened on a two-lane highway about 75 miles (120 kilometers) west of San Antonio, the San Antonio Express-News ( ) reported Tuesday. An affidavit from another state trooper seeking a blood test for a toxicology report said the trooper had probable cause to believe Young was intoxicated during the collision because the man told a trooper he had taken prescription medication earlier in the day, including clonazepam and the generic forms of Lexapro and Ambien.A phone call to a number listed for Young’s family went unanswered Tuesday. A message left by The Associated Press for the judge who signed the documents was not immediately returned.No charges had been filed in the crash as of Tuesday. District Attorney Daniel Kindred has said it could be more than a month before the investigation file from the Department of Public Safety is forwarded to his office.The collision took place near Garner State Park. The small church bus carrying 14 older congregants from the First Baptist Church of New Braunfels was returning from a retreat.Officials from Uvalde and Real counties confirmed they had received phone calls about a white pickup truck driving erratically and crossing the highway shortly before the wreck. A couple who had been driving behind Young’s pickup filmed his car crossing into the oncoming traffic lane and onto the shoulder.The couple later confirmed they had called the county law enforcement officials and later 911 when the collision occurred. The man later told police and reporters, including the AP, that Young had told him he had been texting before the accident.A National Transportation and Safety Board investigator said Young was not wearing his seatbelt, while most if not all of the 14 church bus occupants had been wearing theirs. Only one passenger in the back row of the bus survived the crash.The NTSB investigation of the crash, which will include a likely cause and any safety recommendations for the future, could take up to a year to complete. Kindred and other officials said that report has no bearing on when or whether criminal charges are filed. Sharelast_img read more
