Apa, 20, who plays Archie in the Warner Bros.-produced Archie Comics adaptation, apparently fell asleep driving the 45-minute trip home after midnight. He was taken to a local hospital for observation and later discharged without serious injuries. His car, however, didn’t fare as well. The passenger side was apparently destroyed after striking a light pole, and the vehicle was rendered inoperable..The crash has ignited a firestorm of protest on the Riverdale set, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The show routinely requires shoots that last until the early morning hours, and the cast and crew are not provided transportation to and from the set. Actor Cole Sprouse, who co-stars as Archie’s pal Jughead and is one of Apa’s close friends, had apparently planned to be in the car as well that night but changed plans at the last minute. Sprouse, a leader of sorts of the actors on the show, has asked that the Greg Berlanti-produced series provide transportation to cast members working late hours.. Facebook Twitter
Chopra (WB): Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday said the upcoming Lok Sabha elections will drive the BJP out of power and ensure that Narendra Modi will never again be the prime minister. The Trinamool Congress will help form the next government at the Centre, she claimed and urged the people to vote for it. “This time it is a very important election. This election is to defeat the BJP. It is to drive out the BJP from power … This election is to make sure that Narendra Modi can never be the prime minister of the country again. We must ensure that they (BJP) never come back,” Banerjee said at an election rally at Chopra in Uttar Dinajpur.

We will drive out the BJP from the country,” she said urging people to vote for Trinamool Congress. Taking a jibe at Modi, Banerjee said that for the past four-and-half years the prime minister was busy touring foreign countries. “Suddenly he became so conscious about the welfare of countrymen”. “Five years back he was the chaiwala and now he is suddenly the chowkidar. And after the elections people will not find him anywhere. For four and half years he was busy touring the globe and now there is no employment here, farmers have died failing to pay their debts… He was mum when people were lynched. I call him (Modi) dangabaaz (rioteer) and a lutera (looter),” she said.

The Darjeeling Lok Sabha constituency is set to witness a keenly-fought contest between the two warring factions of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) — one led by its supremo Bimal Gurung and his one-time protege Binay Tamang. The ruling TMC in West Bengal is yet to win the Darjeeling seat even once since its inception in 1998, while the BJP has emerged victorious twice.
Mariek Schmidt talks to the Brock News about her work with NASA’s latest Mars mission and the Curiosity rover.Volcanologist and igneous petrologist Mariek Schmidt is one of 400 scientists worldwide monitoring and analyzing data from Mars that’s being collected by the rover vehicle Curiosity, which landed on the Red Planet last August.She spent a couple of months at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, developing plans for the rover to follow a geological route.Schmidt is back in her Brock office, continuing to analyze the data and participate in developing daily plans for the rover.BN: Describe what it was like to work with the team in California last year.Schmidt: We were together for the first 90 sols of the mission. A sol is one day on Mars, consisting of approximately 24.5 Earth hours. The idea was to have the entire science team all together living on Mars time so that we could synchronize communication with the rover and imaging orbiters that orbit Mars once a day.Mars sols and Earth days are similar that it doesn’t mess with you too much initially, but over the span of a week or two weeks it really changes. It adds up. It’s kind-of like living in another time zone. There will be one week a month when its normal time – you go to work at 8 or 9 in the morning and you work a normal day, and then there are other days where you start at 5 o’clock at night and it’s not so much fun.At the end of our shifts we’d have these science discussions where everybody got together and we’d talk things through. The best part about being at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena for the first 90 sols is that I got to work with these really incredibly smart people. We were always talking about science. It’s a really neat environment to be in. It’s an amazing, amazing opportunity and I’m very thankful to be part of this.BN: What is Mars like?Schmidt: Mars is dusty. That dust is generally a pinky-brown colour. It gives everything a pinky-brown hue. There aren’t any plants or animals. We’re not sure if micro-organisms ever existed. There’s water on Mars but not in the form one would normally think. Because the atmospheric pressure of Mars is very low, water is either stable as a solid or gas but not liquid form. There can be groundwater at higher pressures below the surface of the planet.There is evidence in the landscape – river channels and things like that – that could indicate that water was once present, which means the atmosphere used to be at a higher pressure. Mars is 4.65 billion years old. Mars is very dry, very cold and dusty. The temperature varies during the day from around 0°C to -70°C.Mars is a basaltic planet, which means that most of the rocks on Mars are rich in iron and magnesium. On Earth, we have oceanic crust and continental crust. Our oceanic crust is composed of basalt, while our continental crust is composed of granites, which are higher in silica. The dominant form of volcanism on Earth is basaltic, but what’s different from Mars is that we have high silica rock mostly due to plate tectonics, which Mars doesn’t have.BN: What is the purpose of your mission?Schmidt: What we’re trying to do with this mission is to understand whether or not Mars could have once been a habitable place. There’s been an atmosphere change during the planet’s history, from high pressure to low pressure; we want to know why.We’re trying to build a coherent history of Gale Crater by piecing the data together. We want to track how rocks change in composition over time. We do this by reading the layers of rock, where the youngest rocks are on top and the oldest layers on the bottom.BN: What is the rover Curiosity up to these days?Schmidt: Right now the rover is drilling into rock; this is a first-time activity. We’re really excited to get those data down to Earth, which hasn’t happened yet. The rover is drilling rock, taking core samples and turning those samples into powder. The rover has instruments in its body that can analyze powdered samples. It can determine the mineralogy; it also heats up samples and analyzes gases that are emitted from the rock. The rover also takes pictures, shoots a laser beam at rocks and lays instruments down on rocks to collect elemental compositions.BN: Will you ever visit Mars yourself?Schmidt: The next Rover is set to go up in 2020. I think it’s possible within my lifetime that humans will go to Mars. But I wouldn’t want to do it – it’s too far away and I might not come back.
LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has lost Parliament. But he could still win a general election if enough voters approve of his determination to make Britain’s departure from the European Union a reality.The U.K. leader who took office in July failed spectacularly in his first encounter with Parliament, losing six important votes before suspending the legislature for an unexpected five weeks during a crucial period in Britain’s political life. He was unable to convince enough lawmakers to back his call for an early national election, which he hoped would give him a more pliant group of lawmakers.Despite his inability to get a general election set for mid-October — Parliament voted him down twice on that score — most observers think an early election is now inevitable, in part because Johnson’s Conservative Party has lost its working majority in the House of Commons and no longer has enough votes to pass legislation.Parliament is now suspended — or prorogued — until Oct. 14, but once its session resumes, most scenarios lead to a cross-party agreement to hold an early election that would test Johnson’s popularity outside Parliament’s Gothic halls in London. Right now the next British election is not scheduled until 2022.Under a master plan hatched in part by top adviser Dominic Cummings, who played a key role directing pro-Brexit forces during the 2016 referendum campaign on EU membership, Johnson and his team would hope to cast the election as a “people versus Parliament” vote.In this screenplay, the people — represented by Johnson and his Conservative Party candidates — are the good guys intent on implementing the results of the 2016 Brexit referendum that saw British voters, by a 4% margin, choose to leave the EU. Johnson’s Conservative party has been to a large degree purged of moderates who did not share his willingness to countenance a “no-deal” Brexit divorce from the EU and all the economic risks that entails.Parliament and opposition parties, meanwhile, will be cast as villains determined to thwart the will of the people with endless delays.The prime minister, well aware that many voters are tired of the whole thing, claims he doesn’t want an election but sees it as the only way to make Brexit happen. He can blame the current Parliament for tying his hands with its legislation blocking his ability to pull off a “no-deal” Brexit on Oct. 31, and say the legislators are determined to overturn the Brexit referendum because they don’t like the results.This “us versus them” scenario that Johnson’s team is hoping to capitalize on borrows from U.S. President Donald Trump’s “drain the swamp” approach, which helped him win the presidency in 2016.It is too early to predict with clarity what shape a British election would take, since there are too many unknowns, especially about what coalitions could be formed. A key question is whether Johnson will seek an alliance with Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, which could unite Brexit backers.The two teamed up successfully during the 2016 referendum campaign, both touting the idea that leaving the EU would give Britain back control of its laws and borders. Farage is a single-issue politician who was more willing than Johnson to blame immigrants for some of Britain’s problems.John Curtice, a polling expert with the University of Strathclyde, said Johnson could form a winning coalition with Farage if he is unable to wring concessions from the EU and decides to openly embrace a “no-deal” Brexit as his stated goal.“If he does a deal with Farage, and comes out in favour of ‘no-deal’ and Farage is ready to deal with him, that creates the potential of a winning coalition but contains the risk of splitting his own party,” Curtice said.He added that Johnson could also possibly win by getting a deal with the EU that wins parliamentary backing and woos Brexit Party voters back into the Conservative fold.“He’s got two routes, neither of which is easy,” Curtice said.Johnson will need to win the backing of disgruntled voters tempted to vote for candidates like Jonathan Bullock, the Brexit Party’s standard bearer in the pro-Brexit stronghold of Boston in eastern England.“Parliament has completely let us down,” Bullock said, claiming the current legislature is full of “remainers” who are determined to stall Brexit indefinitely. He backs the call for a general election but isn’t sure about Johnson.“Boris says the right thing, but can you trust him?” Bullock said. “The one person you can trust is Nigel Farage, who has been consistently right about this all along. He said that the establishment would try to stop Brexit, and he’s been absolutely right.”Johnson’s team also believes he can capitalize on the opposition Labour Party’s left-wing tilt under leader Jeremy Corbyn, who is a divisive figure for many voter. Just as Johnson has alienated some Conservative moderates, Corbyn has lost the backing of some longtime Labour figures who are turned off by his doctrinaire approach.But Johnson faces a potentially effective informal opposition coalition that would bring together Labour, which under Corbyn has not taken a clear position on Brexit but is opposed to a “no-deal” divorce, the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish Nationalists, which are both strongly opposed to Brexit and smaller regional parties.These groups banded together to block Johnson’s bid for an immediate election, but it’s not clear if they could bury past rivalries and find common ground in a longer campaign.___Associated Press writer Jill Lawless contributed.___Follow AP’s full coverage of Brexit and British politics at: https://www.apnews.com/BrexitGregory Katz, The Associated Press

Ever heard of Soluto? A few years ago, its software launched at TechCrunch Disrupt to help Windows users around the globe deal with common PC frustrations. Slow boot times. Application crashes. Cluttered browser windows.Today, Soluto has evolved into something very different. It’s still designed to fight computing frustration, but it’s been transformed into a slick, friendly remote support platform.There are elements of zero-config remote support apps like LogMeIn and Teamviewer in the new Soluto, but there’s one massive difference that will be music to the ears of anyone who provides casual support services to friends, family members, or even a few select business clients.It’s cheap.Soluto’s new subscription plans start at $9.99 a month for up to ten PCs, and that gives you free reign to charge for what you do while you’re connected. Yes, LogMeIn and Teamviewer offer free options, but strictly speaking they’re only for non-commercial use.Soluto’s Roee Adler told me the team spent a lot of time thinking about the “new IT guy.” The person at the office — or in a circle of friends — that didn’t set out to tackle tech support but got roped into the role for one reason or another. “Ask Lee, he knows about Windows.” You know the sort of thing.Apart from the agent app that you install on the computers you want to support, everything else in Soluto is done from the comfort of a web browser (even on a smartphone or tablet). There’s no desktop or mobile control app to install.All the systems you support are neatly laid out on your dashboard page, and you’re able to take a quick look at details like estimated energy cost, hardware configuration, free disk space, and culprits in the latest frustrations.You can take action, too. Disk cleanup, home page resets, and even software installations (powered by the equally cool Ninite app) can all be initiated without actually connecting to the remote computer. You can even disable pesky browser add-ons this way. Need to do some actual clicking and typing? Fire up a connection and take the reins, just like you like would with Teamviewer or VNC.Performance is excellent, though it’s not quite up to snuff with apps like Teamviewer. Connections are still plenty fast, though: I never found the latency to be a source of irritation.Currently, some more advanced features are lacking. There’s no support for multiple monitors, no file transfer component, no built-in chat, and no screen recording option. Hardcore support specialists might miss these things, but for 98% of geek-powered support Soluto is more than sufficient.While Soluto is a nice tool for the person providing support, it’s also great for the folks who need support. A quick right-click of the system tray icon lets users report a frustration, complete with an automatically-captured screenshot. Problem details and a system summary are instantly zapped to your email so that you can begin your investigation.There’s also a nice human touch to the whole experience. When a problem is fixed, Soluto will inform the end user that you’ve stepped in to help. They’ll see your picture and can give you a virtual high-five to let you know that your hard work is appreciated. A little acknowledgement for a job well done is always welcome, right?And, as previously mentioned, you’re still free to charge. For around a buck a month per computer, there’s an excellent opportunity here for geeky types to make a little extra cash. Integrated support for systems like PayPal, Google Wallet, Flattr, or BitCoin billing would make a nice addition… and guess what? It’s coming soon to Soluto — in the meantime you’ll have to whip up some manual invoices.
A decision by the Council of State has opened the door to extending pharmacy opening hours, a change that has been vehemently opposed by professionals in the sector.According to a ruling on Wednesday, pharmacy owners will be able to operate their businesses on Saturday mornings as well as Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Pharmacists who wish to work beyond the fixed weekly schedule will have to notify their respective pharmaceutical associations and regional authorities, the ruling said.Pharmacists had claimed that expanding opening hours would cause “irreparable damage” by creating confusion among store owners as well as customers. They also argued that the move would undermine free competition in the retail distribution of medicines and medical goods, affecting revenues.Pharmacists have said in the past that the measure is unconstitutional and incompatible with EU legislation.The Council of State rejected the allegations — brought forward by the pharmaceutical associations of Attica, Corinth and Livadia — as being too vague.Pharmacists are among 140 or so “closed professions” that Greece’s foreign lenders — the European Union and the International Monetary Fund — have wanted to see liberalized in exchange for bailout help.In a controversial ruling, the same court earlier this month reversed a decision by the ministers of health and regional development to end the monopoly of pharmacies on the sale of first-stage baby milk by making it available, at lower prices, in super markets.The Panhellenic Union of Pharmacists had objected to the move on the grounds that pharmacists are more qualified to explain mixing procedures to parents than untrained supermarket employees, even though detailed instructions are included on the package.Critics point out that Greek parents are forced to buy baby milk at more than double the price than their British counterparts do.

La Freebox n’aime pas l’heure d’été Ce dimanche, le passage à l’heure d’été a fait disparaître le temps entre 2 et 3h du matin… sauf pour les freebox(s), qui sont restées bloquées en heure d’hiver. Depuis le milieu des années 70, dans le but de faire des économies d’énergie, les mois de mars et d’octobre, l’heure francaise bascule d’une heure en avant ou en arrière. La plupart des appareils électroniques s’ajustent automatiquement. Mais ce dimanche, les processeurs de Freebox ont eu la surprise de voir leurs boitiers server, qui fournissent en accès internet, en décalage avec toutes leurs autres horloges digitales. Les Freebox Server v4 et v5, ainsi que la Freebox Révolution, v6, restent donc à l’heure d’hiver, même après un redémarrage. Ce n’est par contre pas le cas des boîtiers Player, chez qui cela aurait été vraiment gênant puisqu’ils gèrent l’enregistrement des programmes.À lire aussiUn écureuil nous donne une leçon de déblayage de neigeIl s’agit d’un bug mineur, mais qui ne fait pas très sérieux pour Free. Leur Freebox Révolution a connu un succès ravageur : en 2010, Free comptait 3,969 millions d’abonnés haut débit, au 31 décembre 2011, ils atteignent 4,461 millions, soit une progression de 492.000. Autant d’abonnés qui ont profité de cette surprise. Il est probable que Free sortira d’ici ce soir un correctif qui soignera toutes ces boxs décalées et leur fera connaître les joies du printemps.Le 26 mars 2012 à 15:45 • Maxime Lambert
The American Soybean Association (ASA) testified today before the United States Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry to present ASA’s views on international trade issues, including the need for Congress to approve pending Free Trade Agreements, extend Presidential Trade Promotion Authority, and normalize financial relations with Cuba.”ASA was pleased with the President’s commitment to double the value of U.S. exports under the National Export Initiative,” said ASA Vice President Danny Murphy, a soybean producer from Canton, Miss. “Efforts to achieve this goal in the agriculture sector will require Congressional approval of the pending Free Trade Agreements with Colombia, South Korea, and Panama, negotiation of new FTAs with key importing countries, and progress on the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation regional agreement.” Murphy added that “delay in approving the Colombia FTA has caused U.S. soybean producers to lose over 50 percent of their market share.”Soybeans are the second largest commodity in the United States in terms of annual acreage and value, with 78 million acres planted and a farm-gate value of $32 billion in 2009. Soybeans and soybean products are the most important U.S. export commodity, with sales exceeding $21 billion last year. This represented over 50 percent of U.S. soybean production and 21 percent of total U.S. agricultural exports in 2009. “As producers of the largest export-dependent commodity, soybean farmers have historically made international trade a top priority,” Murphy said.Murphy also spoke in favor of renewing Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which allows the President to submit trade agreements to Congress for an up-or-down vote, without amendment. “Negotiation of new FTAs will require renewal of TPA, which is a top priority for ASA,” Murphy said.”Action is also needed on legislation to normalize financial relations with Cuba,” Murphy said. Cuba imported $284 million worth of U.S. soybeans, meal, oil, livestock products in 2009. “Normalizing financial relations would improve the competitiveness of U.S. soy and livestock product exports to the Cuban market,” according to Murphy.On trade provisions in the 2008 Farm Bill, Murphy stated that “ASA strongly supports maintaining funding of both the Foreign Market Development Program and Market Access Program at current levels, and increasing funding for these export promotion programs in the 2012 Farm Bill.”
Webjet recently announced a 24 per cent increase in Total Transaction Value (TTV) for July to September 2010. The company posted third quarter TTV of approximately $149 million in this year’s period compared to $120 million last year, it said in an announcement on 4 October. “As average booking values this year are essentially the same as last year, virtually all of this income is in unit numbers and reflects Webjet’s increasing market footprint where available airline data suggests a general market increase in the order of between 8-10 per cent. In other words, Webjet’s rate of growth is between 2.5 and 3 times the underlying market,” managing director David Clarke said.“This latest quarterly increase relative to 2009, compounds the growth of similar order which we achieved in this quarter last year, when we defied the general industry downturn.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: C.C

editors@timecomWhen I attended my first Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 1976 I was in my mid-20s new to the tech scene and highly impressionable When I entered the show floor back then my senses were bombarded by audio and video displays and vendors hawking their tech toys In those days Playboy Bunnies and Penthouse Pets were routinely used to draw dealers into booths in fact part of CES included an adult video section since VCRs and their tapes were considered tech products Fast-forward to today and CES has morphed into one of the most respectable consumer business events in the world Hosted annually in Las Vegas it spans more than two million square feet of show floor and includes enough gadgetry to fill 35 football fields The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) which puts on the show said it expects between 150000 and 160000 industry professionals to attend CES between Jan 6-10 2015 on par with last years show Every year leading up to CES I get hundreds of

and 51 surround sound audio will also be hot at CES this year 4K TVs tend to be very slim meaning there isn’t much room for serious speakers inside them Sound bars fill that gap greatly enhancing sound quality to match 4K TVs’ incredible visual output Also dont be surprised if we see a couple of 8K televisions launched at the show Although 4K will be the big thing for the next three-to-four years 8K TVs will debut in time for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo which should be broadcast in 8K by that time 2 Connected Everything The Internet of Things (IoT) will be a major theme at CES 2015 Many devices will come with some type of wireless radio that can connect to the Internet or other devices within the home enabling you to control various aspects of your home with your smartphone There

WORLD NEUROSURGERY 114 245 (2018); JOZEF POLC/500PX Top stories: Florida’s HIV problem ancient skull surgery and corrections to a flawed diet study By Katie LanginJun 15 2018 4:05 PM ‘We’re in a mess’ Why Florida is struggling with an unusually severe HIV/AIDS problem In 2016 Miami Florida was first on the list of new HIV diagnoses in US cities Florida also has more cases of AIDS than any other state The problem is complex but it differs significantly in urban and rural regions Miami for example is a diverse community full of immigrants who cannot be reached with a one-size-fits-all message Rural Florida is in the conservative Bible Belt in the deep South which can be homophobic and looks askance at sexual education Now new efforts are underway to try to solve Florida’s AIDS crisis by squarely looking at these shortcomings and confronting them—one by one South America’s Inca civilization was better at skull surgery than Civil War doctors Cranial surgery without modern anesthesia and antibiotics may sound like a death sentence But trepanation—the act of drilling cutting or scraping a hole in the skull for medical reasons—was practiced for thousands of years from ancient Greece to pre-Columbian Peru Not every patient survived But many did including more than 100 subjects of the Inca Empire A new study of their skulls and hundreds of others from pre-Columbian Peru suggests the success rates of premodern surgeons there was shockingly high: up to 80% during the Inca era compared with just 50% during the American Civil War some 400 years later Following charges of flawed

sex: Groundbreaking report details persistent hostility female scientists face Ask someone for an example of sexual harassment and they might cite a professor’s insistent requests to a grad student for sex But such lurid incidents account for only a small portion of a serious and widespread harassment problem in science according to a report released this week by the National Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine Two years in the making the report describes pervasive and damaging “gender harassment”—behaviors that belittle women and make them feel they don’t belong including sexist comments and demeaning jokes Between 17% and 50% of female science and medical students reported this kind of harassment in large surveys conducted by two major university systems across 36 campuses Artificial intelligence can predict how you’ll look decades from now Police searching for a long-lost person or fugitive sometimes have little more to go on than an old photograph Artists or

that’s more realistic (and depressing) than ever HOUSTON (Reuters) – US Gulf of Mexico oil and gas production is returning to near normal levels three days after Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida Panhandle data from an offshore regulator showed on Saturday with oil output off 19 percent and natural gas production down less than 10 percent The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) also said in an midday update that only one evacuated production platform was still unoccupied down from 89 platforms on Wednesday It can take several days after a storm passes to inspect platforms for damages fully return crews and restore production after wells are shut-in ahead of a storm Michael entered the Gulf as a tropical storm and quickly spun into a major hurricane producing rough seas and winds of up to 155 miles per hour (250 kph) when it made landfall near Panama City Florida on Wednesday As of midday on Saturday the storm had left at least 18 dead in four Southeast US states and damages to communities in its path were estimated in the billions of dollars It was one of the most powerful storms recorded in US history The Gulf production still offline on Saturday morning represented 330394 barrels per day of oil production and 247 million cubic feet per day of natural gas output BSEE reported from a survey of 17 oil and gas producers In all Michael cost Gulf producers about 327 million barrels of oil this week Offshore production in federal waters of the US Gulf of Mexico accounts for 17 percent of total US crude output and 5 percent of national natural gas production according to the US Energy Information Administration BSEE said its Saturday survey of producers showed that all drilling rigs and vessels that had been evacuated or moved to

flagged certain issues indicating what seems like a credibility crisis engulfing the Election Commission Concerns about thepoll panel’s independence under AK Joti were raised in the meeting citing issues such as the EC’s decision to delink the announcement of polls in Himachal Pradesh from Gujarat and disqualifying 20 AAP MLAs without holding oral hearings on the veracity of the complaints The Indian Express reported Other issues which were discussed included politicians indulging in hate speech and prolonged election periods as well reforms pertaining to EVMs and polling booths I wholeheartedly welcome this renewed much-needed conversation around electoral reform in the country and this meeting suggests that the EC is willing to improve and transform its functioning to provide the country with more efficient and transparent election processes Representational image AFP The need of the hour is for the Election Commission to implement reforms and measures to streamline its processes on an urgent basis particularly in light of the forthcoming 2019 general elections Here are a few suggestions in three crucial areas of electoral reform: election financing independence of the EC and polling infrastructure Election financing: Restructuring election finance can be crucial in reducing the generation of black money in the economy by eradicating the need for cash transactions Cash transactions which form the primary mode of campaign finance permit anonymity and therefore leave very little room for accountability Till such time we can achieve transparency in funding that is completely traceable through the banking system a halfway point is the introduction of electoral bonds – which though anonymous do not contribute to the generation of black money and provide much greater transparency than cash A second reform in election financing is to increase the stipulated campaign budgets for a candidate Currently the sanctioned limit for a Lok Sabha MP is 70 lakhs which may be unrealistically low and facilitate the use of cash and consequently the generation of black money By increasing expenditure limits the EC can legitimize higher spending within realistic limits and ensure that the money stays within the formal economy Independence of the Election Commission: A recommendation and demand made by the EC itself and reiterated over the years is to constitute an independent Secretariat along the lines of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Secretariats An independent Secretariat for the EC would allow the body to frame its own rules for recruitment appointments promotions and the like affording immunity from political and governmental pressure or interference Other recommendations include establishing a collegium system for the appointment of election commissioners and constitutionally protecting all three members and not just the Chief Election Commissioner Polling Infrastructure:As votes are counted from EVMs in each polling booth it’s easy to discern the voting patterns in various localities which can lead to the use of unfair practices by political parties To counter this phenomenon a popular reform suggestion is the use of totaliser machines which can count the votes recorded in 14 EVMs as a group without revealing the individual voting patterns of any one polling booth The Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) allows a voter to corroborate her vote through a paper slip dispensed by the VVPAT machine immediately after the vote is cast While a pilot was conducted during the 2014 general elections and some state elections have utilized these machines since then they have not been given the kind of investments required for nation-wide coverage and have indeed been resisted As the ex-CECs noted in the meeting currently the VVPAT slips of only one polling both in every seat are matched with EVM-recorded votes I believe the VVPAT is an effective method to safeguard against both human tampering and equipment malfunction and should be given the investment they deserve Washington: The USon Thursdayaccused Russian president Vladimir Putin of breaching Cold War-era treaties by developing a new generation of "invincible" weapons and said American military was fully prepared to defend the country "President Putin has confirmed what the US government has known for a long time but that Russia has denied prior to this" White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said She said Russia has been developing destabilising weapons systems for over a decade in direct violations of its treaty obligations Her comments came hours after President Putin announced that Russia has developed a number of advanced weapons systems including a nuclear-powered cruise missile which make all US capabilities aimed at undermining the Russian nuclear deterrent obsolete Sanders said US president Donald Trump understands the threats facing America and its allies in this century and is determined to protect the homeland and preserve peace through strength "US defence capabilities are and will remain second to none" she told reporters "And now because of the new defence budget of $700 billion our military will be far stronger than ever As President’s Nuclear Posture Review made clear America is moving forward to modernise our nuclear arsenal and ensure our capabilities are unmatched” Sanders said US president Donald Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin Reuters The State Department expressed concern over the Russian video along with the Putin speech which targeted the US "It is certainly concerning to see your government to see your country put together that kind of video that shows the Russian Government attacking the US That’s certainly a concern of ours I don’t think that that’s very constructive nor is it responsible" State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters at a separate news conference The Pentagon said it is not surprised by Putin’s statement and is fully prepared to defend the country "They know very well that it’s not about them Our missile defence has never been about them We need to ensure we have a credible nuclear deterrent and we are confident that we are prepared to defend this nation no matter what" Pentagon chief spokesperson Dana White told reporters Congressman Mac Thornberry Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee said that for too long presidents of both parties have let all sorts of persistent Russian aggression go unanswered whether violations of multiple treaties election meddling planting fake news stories or invading sovereign countries "It took six years for the Obama administration to even admit that Russia was serious about developing new nuclear weapons or violating the INF treaty despite the urging of this Committee and others Even with that admission no action was taken despite the recommendations from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Dempsey That inaction has led to the situation we find ourselves in today" he said was abandoned in the 57th minute after Besiktas coach Senol Gunes was hit by an object hurled out of the stands.
