Kolkata: The Calcutta Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) authorities have taken up a beautification drive with an aim to provide better environment to the patients admitted to the hospital for treatment.A children’s park is being set up outside the hematology department of the hospital where all the basis amenities will be available for kids. One of the main objectives of the initiative is to ensure that the children coming to the hematology department with various blood related ailments can spend some quality time with their family members.

Once the project is completed, the children admitted to the various departments of the hospital can indulge in recreation at the park. This will reduce the stress of the patients and help them overcome the monotony during their stay at the hospital. It was learnt that there would be various amusement rides and games for children in the park. According to sources in the hospital, a swing will also be put up inside the park. The park will come up close to the hematology ward of the hospital. Patients suffering from Thalassemia and other blood-related problems often visit the hospital for blood transfusion. They have to wait on the hospital campus. Children and their family members can spend some time in the park. Patients, who wait in the queue for a long time, can also step into the park and enjoy the breeze in the hot summer days. Various colourful lights will be installed to illuminate the park. This apart, a fountain will be erected within the park. There will a big water reservoir under the fountain to ensure regular supply of water.

It may be mentioned here that the hospital compound has been given a different look following the construction of new gates. Roads that connect one department with another on the hospital campus have been reconstructed. In a significant move, the CMCH authorities have installed an underground fire fighting system to check fire hazards at the hospital.
Kolkata: Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation Limited (KMRCL) on Friday held a meeting with state Chief Secretary Malay De to overcome the discrepancies that have cropped up in 112 declaration forms submitted by the residents, for claiming compensation for the damages caused to their houses due to construction work of East-West Metro in Bowbazar area.”Today (September 13, 2019), we conducted a meeting with Chief Secretary Malay De at Nabanna in connection with the discrepancies in 112 declaration forms,” said A K Nandy, general manager (Administration), KMRCL.

While the process of handing over the Rs five lakh cheques to beneficiaries started on September 7, the verification of the residents eligible for getting the compensation was being carried out by KMC officials. In a bid to get the compensation, the head of the family has to submit the declaration form mentioning the address and the name of the hotel they have been shifted to, at the control room formed at Goenka College of Commerce and Business Administration. The KMC then verifies the details and approves the names of the beneficiaries.

This apart, different heads of the same family have claimed compensation. According to sources, Subhashish Sen, resident of 9 D, Durga Pithuri Lane, had received a cheque of Rs five lakh but the drawee had stopped the amount. He visited the control room urging the KMRCL officials to issue the compensation on Friday. According to sources in the control room, the amount was apparently stopped because of litigation. Sen is one of four siblings, all of whom claimed that they were beneficiaries of the compensation. The number of beneficiaries in the list is increasing as the residents are still registering their names to avail the compensation at the control room. However, the KMRCL had formed a Human Interface group to prepare a building-wise head count of the people. “We are now disbursing the compensation amount directly to the accounts of beneficiaries. Today, we have transferred Rs five lakh to the accounts of 14 residents through RTGS,” added Nandy. A Building Assessment Committee (BAC) had been formed to categorise the buildings as per their extent of damage in Durga Pithuri Lane, Syakra Para Lane and Gour De Lane. The five-member BAC has already started health study of the buildings that can be restored, as well as the ones that need to be demolished.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has told voters in coal-producing Kentucky that it’s possible to be a friend of coal miners and a believer in climate change and the need for cleaner energy sources to combat it.In blunt terms rarely heard in Kentucky’s political circles, the Vermont senator said Sunday on a stop in Kentucky that bold action is needed to confront the dangers from climate change. That course of action should include turning away from fossil fuels to curb greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming, he said.“Climate change is real,” Sanders told a crowd of supporters during a speech on Sunday in Louisville. “Climate change is caused by human activity. And climate change is causing devastating harm in our country and throughout the world.”Sanders said he recognizes that many Kentuckians have long relied on coal mining to support their families.“So let me be as clear as I can be, coal miners … are not my enemy,” the senator said. “Workers in the fossil fuel industry are not my enemy. Climate change is our enemy.”Sanders vowed to help communities tied to coal and other fossil fuel industries in the transition toward clean energy production.The development of wind, solar and other sustainable energy sources will create jobs, as will modernizing the nation’s electricity grid, he said. He pledged support for expansion of high-speed broadband service in rural regions.“Here is my promise as we transition away from fossil fuel: we will not abandon communities that have relied on fossil fuel jobs,” he said. “We will rebuild those communities.”Republicans made dramatic inroads in Appalachian “coal country” by tying the coal industry’s declines to increased regulations introduced during former Democratic President Barack Obama’s tenure.Republican Donald Trump’s enthusiasm for coal helped make that region one of his most fervent bases of support as Trump racked up big wins in West Virginia, Kentucky and other states in 2016 en route to winning the presidency.Republican National Committee spokesman Kevin Knoth said Sunday that Sanders’ platform would devastate Kentucky in part by eliminating the coal industry.He warned that failure to combat climate change will result in more extreme weather and more suffering.“Future generations deserve a planet that is healthy and is habitable, and we have the moral responsibility to make sure that they have that kind of planet,” he said.Bruce Schreiner, The Associated Press
Anna Tibaijuka of Tanzania, the Executive Director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), was today named Director-General of the UN Office in Nairobi.Mrs. Tibaijuka, the highest ranking African woman in the UN system, will continue to head the Nairobi-based human settlements agency, where she has been serving at the helm since 2000.In June 2005, Secretary General Kofi Annan appointed Mrs. Tibaijuka as his Special Envoy to study the scope of the Zimbabwean Government’s evictions of informal traders and people deemed to be squatting illegally. As Director-General, Mrs. Tibaijuka will serve as a direct link between the UN, the Kenyan Government and the extensive diplomatic community in Nairobi, and as the host of a wide variety of diplomatic gatherings and peacebuilding initiatives that take place there.
The gamers out there will be familiar with the creeping anxious feeling you get as the release of a much awaited game nears. If only you could get access to it early — if only there was a way! Well, now there is a way you can get early access to some games on Steam, and it’s called (fittingly) Early Access. There are currently only a dozen games in Early Access, but this could be huge and is certain to expand.The premise of Early Access is that interested gamers will be able to buy a game before it is “done.” By purchasing the game, you are given access to a title that grows and changes as the developers apply the finishing touches. The title won’t show up in the main Steam Store until it has been finalized, but you can be an important part of that process by offering feedback.It’s important to note this isn’t the same as pre-ordering a game. Content in Early Access is always going to be a full and playable experience, and it is likely you’ll get a break on pricing. Although, that doesn’t mean it’s going to be working perfectly. Developers can update Early Access players on the development process and are encouraged to push out new builds frequently.Early Access is launching with 12 games to start, but more will be added over time (Valve tells interested developers to get in touch). The Early Access titles include ARMA 3 Alpha, Kenshi, Kinetic Void, Under the Ocean, and Gear Up. Pricing varies quite a bit, with ARMA 3 costing $32.99 and Under the Ocean clocking in at just $6.99. Gear Up appears to be the only free game in Early Access right now.This system seems like a win all around. Users get deals on games that can be played early. Developers get crucial feedback during the development process. As for Valve, it benefits by adding a new facet to PC gaming.Check out the full list of Early Access games here.

Observer et analyser des peintures pour mieux diagnostiquerNew Haven, États-Unis – Pour les premières années de l’école de Médecine de Yale, l’enseignement inclut des visites au Centre d’Art Britannique. Les docteurs en herbe testent leurs capacités d’observation en examinant les peintures.”Nous essayons de traiter la peinture comme un patient, un parfait inconnu, le but est d’observer de près ce que pouvez voir sans établir de jugements”. C’est ce qu’a expliqué à la presse le docteur Kalman Watsky, qui enseigne la dermatologie à Yale et conduit ces sessions d’observations.Cette technique a été développée afin d’aider, selon Irwin Braveman, chercheur émérite en dermatologie, les étudiants à développer leurs capacités à établir un diagnostic. Près de 16 écoles développent aussi des méthodes similaires d’observation, et ce type d’enseignement est en vogue. Les écoles de médecine forment les futurs médecins à mémoriser des motifs afin de reconnaître et identifier des syndromes. Il faut donc repérer des ensembles de signes et de symptômes précis. Ainsi, pour définir l’origine de rougeurs et d’éruptions cutanées, les étudiants apprendront à observer deux comportements : tout d’abord, la répartition celle-ci sur le corps, et ensuite, la morphologie des différentes lésions de la rougeur. Ces deux caractéristiques permettent alors à un médecin d’établir un diagnostic. Cependant, une analyse visuelle, comme celle menée lors de la description des peintures, devient importante lorsque la rougeur n’appartient pas à un motif précis que le docteur reconnaît. L’observation ainsi menée reste un atout important dans l’établissement d’un diagnostic bien que les techniques d’imageries telles les IRM et les scanners aient révolutionné la médecine dans les années 1970. Les médecins d’aujourd’hui tendraient plus à se reposer sur ces techniques que sur leur sens de l’observation, a déclaré dans un mail à LiveScience le Dr Braverman. Celui-ci ainsi que ses collègues, ont depuis 1998, commencé à mener une étude sur les capacités d’observations des étudiants et ont lancé ce programme d’observation de peintures et de photographies de patients. Le résultat de cette étude a démontré que les étudiants de Yale ayant suivi cette formation avaient de bien meilleurs résultats. Le 21 novembre 2010 à 09:39 • Emmanuel Perrin

WWE There’s arguably no show in today’s wrestling scene with the pedigree of NXT TakeOver. Held once every few months, the TakeOver shows are reliably excellent, and have been for years. On Saturday NXT goes to Toronto, Canada, as a warmup of sorts for WWE’s SummerSlam in the city on Sunday.The NXT show is headlined by Adam Cole vs. Johnny Gargano for the NXT Championship. It’s the third TakeOver the two have main-evented in a row, with Gargano winning their first match and Cole winning the second. Saturday’s bout will be a best out of three falls, and will likely be the two’s final clash (in NXT, at least). There’s plenty else to get excited over. The Undisputed Era always have terrific matches at TakeOver shows, and on Saturday challenge the Street Profits for the NXT Tag Team Championships. Velveteen Dream will put his North American Championship on the line in a sure-to-be-great Triple Threat match against Pete Dunn and Roderick Strong.Even if you’re not a regular NXT viewer, TakeOver is worth checking out. They’re always fantastic.Start timesNXT TakeOver: Toronto takes place in, you guessed it, Toronto!

In a move is prompted by employees, the University of Alaska Fairbanks is taking action to address workforce diversity and equity issues.Listen nowThe measures laid out this week by University of Alaska Fairbanks Chancellor Dan White come in response to a letter from six female researchers at UAF, and backed by over 200 petition signers. The letter to UAF and UA administrators recommends steps to address unequal pay, bias in hiring, and other challenges faced by women and other underrepresented groups at UAF. White says the letter has given focus to efforts already underway at the university.”I applaud the work of this group of this group of authors and the people who signed onto this, because it brought a lot of the issues to the forefront,” White said.White cited one example of a step being taken to increase diversity in hiring.”We used to have a diversity briefing before any search for faculty or administrators, and I think in recent years, we haven’t been doing that,” White said. “So this is one of the issues that was brought up by the letter and its authors. And that’s an easy one to fix.”White pointed to other equally important steps to be investigated and developed by a new chancellor’s task force.”To take the issues that were laid out in the letter as the first set of issues but to look more broadly on diversity and equity,” White said.‘I’m really excited that the current administration wants to work on these issues,” Lily Cohen, one of the letter’s authors, said.Cohen, a research professional at UAF’s International Arctic Research Center says the letter was inspired by frustration with what they see at UAF.”Right now, the top one percent of people employed at the University of Alaska Fairbanks are 28 people, and three of those are women,” Cohen said. “Which is the same thing as saying that $4.5 million goes to men and $500,000 goes to women. And so when I see numbers like that, I know that there’s something wrong.”Cohen emphasized that they are not looking for mandated representation, but a system that fairly assesses all candidates.”You have to look at who’s writing the qualifications, because maybe a certain candidate has really amazing qualifications, they just aren’t listed as the things the university’s looking for,” Cohen said. “And then also, whenever you’re judging someone’s qualification, everyone comes in with implicit bias or ways of seeing the world in ways that other people don’t see them.”Both Cohen and Chancellor White underscore that the current effort builds on past and ongoing work at the university, which already has a committee on the status of women and diversity, as well as an “inclusion task force” that’s addressing gender issues.
Share Gabriel C. Pérez/KUT NewsGovernor Greg Abbott.State Republican and Democratic party leaders convene for their biannual conventions this month, and Texan members of the GOP have already descended upon San Antonio for the Texas Republican Party Convention to debate their platform and energize activists.The attendees at these conventions tend to be the most dedicated grassroots activists, says Ben Philpott, a senior editor for KUT.“These are the strongest of the strong within the Republican Party,” he says. “These are the people who are most likely to work on all of these campaigns in the fall, so that is, of course, job one of a convention is to make sure these people, who are going to put in the most work leading into 2018 election, that they are excited and enthusiastic and energized about putting in the work that needs to get done.”That means reminding them that, though Republicans regularly win in Texas and have been in control for decades, Democrats could still come out ahead if local campaigns don’t do their part. Governor Greg Abbott brought that message to Dallas earlier this week in a speech he gave at the Southern Baptist Convention Center.“He talked about the need to stay ever-vigilant and make sure that religious liberties are not being trampled on here in Texas,” Philpott says. “And yet of course, the Republicans in Texas control every branch of government here, and have been making sure that, in their eyes, religious liberties are not being trampled on. So it’s putting forward that dystopian view in their minds about what would happen if a Democrat did win, and that’s the stick to get you out the door.”The national convention tends to focus on big-picture goals, but the state convention sets the priorities for the 2019 Texas legislative session with a 26-page party platform document that is updated every two years.Much of the state platform remains the same – focusing on issues like lower taxes and gun rights – but there isn’t consensus on everything.“They can sometimes be a little contentious amongst the delegates here,” Philpott says. “The committees there had spent several hours talking about how they were updating kind of the party’s view on homosexuality, which has been something that has been controversial over the last couple of party platform arguments.”The convention will also reveal how the party has changed since the election of President Donald Trump.“Two years ago, of course these delegates – a lot of them, most of them really – were big Ted Cruz fans when he was running for president. So that convention was a little more somber,” Philpott says. “They were disappointed that Ted Cruz did not get the nomination, and that it was going to be then-candidate Trump. But now of course he is president, and he has a lot of power over how different primaries have kind of played out across the country. And so it will be really interesting to see if they’ve kind of flipped all of a sudden two years [on] and are much more supportive.”Written by Rachel Taube.
In a bizarre mix-up, Swedish police raided an apartment after a couple hung 21-shaped balloons to celebrate a birthday but it was mistaken for ‘IS’ in a reverse image from outside and considered as Islamic State propaganda.Sarah Ericsson hung up the balloons in the shape of the number ‘21’ for her birthday which resulted in her home in Karlskrona, Sweden, being visited by Swedish police who thought it stood for ‘IS’ and had been put up by supporters of the Islamic State extremist group. “It was a little strange,” the 21-year-old told The Local from the library at Blekinge Institute of Technology in southern Sweden, where she is taking a course in Spatial Planning.

The ministry will begin the third stage of the project next month.Traffic lights at 159 intersections in San José already run on solar power. MOPT’s Traffic Engineering Department reported in a news release on Wednesday that work to install 76 more is expected to begin in July or August.The director of the Ministry’s Traffic Lights Department, Diego Rugama, said that he expects to end the year “with total of 235 fully operational solar-powered traffic lights.” The figure represents half of the 474 traffic lights currently in operation in the Greater Metropolitan Area, which includes San José and parts of the provinces of Heredia, Alajuela and Cartago.The ministry’s Roadway Safety Council will fund the new stage of the project, which will require an investment of $1 million, Rugama said.He also said that MOPT seeks to replace all Greater Metropolitan Area traffic lights by 2022. A solar traffic light system includes solar panels and lithium batteries that store energy for operating at nights or during cloudy days. (Via MOPT)Energy savingsThe 159 solar traffic lights currently in operation “represent savings in electricity of 80 percent over traditional traffic lights,” Rugama said.A solar traffic light system includes a solar panel and a set of lithium batteries that store energy that allow them to operate at night or on cloudy days.The batteries can supply enough power to operate an average of 14 hours. If the batteries are depleted, the system automatically switches to the city’s power grid, ensuring that traffic lights do not stop working due to an energy failure.Rugama also explained that before installing a new solar-powered traffic light system, the Ministry conducts technical studies to evaluate two basic conditions. One is the amount of radiation at the site, and the other is an assessment of all nearby obstacles that can block sunlight, “like tall trees or buildings.”Technical staff then calculate the average number of sunlight hours at the location to determine the number of panels and batteries required.MOPT officials have said that the traffic lights replacement project is an important part of Costa Rica’s plan to achieve carbon neutrality.

5. Go to Oistins Fish FryOistins Fish Fry is one of the cheapest and most fun ways to try the wealth of Barbados’ oceans. The huge BBQ spans about 10 different restaurants along the beach and is now an institution in Barbados. Expect to pay around $50 BBD for a huge piece of BBQd fish with all the sides and you’ll need a beer to wash that down with too. 6. Cheap eats do existOf course you can pick up a few bits in the supermarkets on the island to save a few dollars, but that’s no fun is it? Eating out doesn’t have to be too expensive in Barbados anyway. Eat like a true Bajan and go to Chefette, Barbados’ answer to fast food. Barbados is one of the few places where a McDonalds couldn’t survive, thanks to the local love for this place. Go for the chicken roti (£5 with a coke), yum. Or, try the Surfer’s Café in Oistins, where you can get breakfast and coffee for less than £10. Bonus: it’s on the beach. Even The Boatyard, one of Barbados’ best beach bars, served a huge flying fish and fries basket, with two rum and cokes, for £11. Coffee and banana bread at The Crane Hotel costs less than £5, which you can then take down to the beach. Not a bad view for breakfast. You don’t have to confine yourself to supermarket food to save money on food in Barbados, just choose your eatery wisely. 7. Watch those service chargesHow much of a generous tipper are you? In Barbados they add a compulsory 10% service charge to your bill and then some will expect a tip on top too. Whether to give it or not is up to your conscience.8. Take buses over taxisThe bus routes in Barbados are so efficient and easy. You can get to all the main sites of the island for $2 BBD, and enjoy a cultural immersion as you do. Some buses are like little mini vans, while others are big public ones. The driver usually blasts out music, they’ll have a friendly helper who collects the money and you’ll find a mix of tourists and locals on board. Bus stops are easy to work out with signs stating either ‘into the city’ or ‘out of the city’ – it’s down to you to work out which one you need. You can take taxis to and from the airport, which cost between $30-40 BBD each way.

Here are some tried and tested tips on how to do the island on the cheap, from travel blogger [VickyFlipFlop](http://vickyflipfloptravels.com/about-vickyflipflop/).1. Book your flights ASAPIt works out cheaper to book your flights well in advance – so as soon as you know when you’re wanting to go, get bookin’. Check Skyscanner‘s flight comparison tool to get the best deals and savings, or for more information about the best time to book, read up on our seven secrets to finding low cost flights. 4. Know your beach rights!Barbados law states that all beaches on the island are public, so hotels can’t corner sections off and claim it as private, which is great news for us budget travellers. This means you don’t actually need to buy anything from “exclusive” hotels like the Crane Hotel, or Sandy Lane, or even Sandals to access their beaches. You might have a few problems from the security guards if you try to walk through, but by law there will always be some sort of beach access route nearby. So, find the most expensive hotel you can, get your reflective sunglasses on for people watching, and lounge away. 9. Hire a carTo get to the harder to reach places, and to see more, you’d do well to hire a car. Why not opt for a Moke? It’s kind of like a beach buggy and is native to the island. For $200 BBD per 24 hours, you can cruise around with as much mileage as you like. Beware, though: there are stories of Mokes being quite dangerous, so you might be better off with a safer car.10. Just relaxThe cheapest thing you can do in Barbados is to lie on the beach, on a beach towel from your hotel, and relax. You can splash out on a sun lounger if you like, but for free activities, lying under the Caribbean sun, listening to the sound of the waves crashing, is hard to beat. Find cheap flights to Barbados2. Let’s talk money: USD or BBD?US dollars are widely accepted on the island. The exchange rate is fixed at $2BBD to $1USD. This means that if you operate in British pounds, it doesn’t make a different whether you take US or BBD. Just make sure you check which currency the restaurant/tour operator is working in before you commit (just a heads up – it’s usually BBD). 3. Find free sun loungersAh, kicking back and soaking up some sun on a lounger – that’s what we want to go to Barbados for, right? Most beaches will charge for loungers – and you can definitely expect to pay a premium for the fancy ones. Usually, the rate is upwards of $20 BBD, which is OK if you’re there for the day – but if you’re doing a bit of a beach tour it can add up. You need to either perfect the art of looking casual and telling a little fib if anyone asks you if you’re staying at the hotel – or go on a hunt to find the freebies. Browne’s Beach has free loungers, otherwise start setting up your towel on the sand.

MPs have asked private TV channels to consider reducing the cost of subscriptions for small social clubs and cafes, especially in rural areas, they said on Monday.The issue was discussed at the House interior committee where representatives of Cytavision, Primetel and Cablenet, promised to examine the possibility.To remain viable, promote matches and attract business, such small outfits must pay out €500 or €600 a month to be able to show all of the matches broadcast by the three channels, deputies heard.Akel MP and committee deputy chairman Giorgos Georgiou said the issue stemmed from the fact that today small units like social clubs and cafes can’t earn a living from selling 30 or 40 coffees a day, especially those in the countryside.“They also have to sell at lower prices,” he said. “And as we know, the countryside is already in decline.”What the committee was asking was for the pay-TV channels to reconsider their pricing and to offer discounts, incentives and opportunities to rural areas with fewer than 500 inhabitants.The committee, he added, had given the TV stations a month to come up with some proposals or special packages to perhaps have something in place by Christmas to give a boost to these small businesses over the holiday period.Disy deputy Andreas Kyprianou said he was receiving a huge number of complaints from small clubs and cafes that the fees charged by the TV channels “were unbearable, and forcing them to close down”.He said the representatives of the companies promised to look into the demand for reductions so that those small businesses in the countryside could survive.Kyprianou said if a cafe chooses to show all Cytavision matches, three decoders are needed and a total cost of €350 a month, and another €150 for Primetel.You May LikeYahoo SearchResearch Best Compact SUV Cars.

path to the resolution of the Nigerian uprising hit the rock last night as the representative of the Nigerian Labour Congress TUC and the government failed to reach a conclusive agreement on the Fuel subsidy saga Hence the strike moves into its fifth day while the negotiation will continue tomorrow It was confirmed that the NLC had earlier agreed with the president of the Nigerian Senate David Mark over price reduction and had even supported the idea that deregulation could be moved to March from the April date they were proposing initially Authoritative source had confirmed that ” at a marathon meeting attended by President Goodluck Jonathan organised labour the leadership of the Senate and the representatives of state governors labour was given two options for the reinstatement of the N65 per litre price of petrol The first option is to revert to the pre-New Year price on the condition that the subsidy regime would be completely removed in April The second option is to allow the N65 selling price of petrol and withdraw 80% of the subsidy in March meaning that petrol would sell for N120 if the current price regime remains in force” Another source had revealed that” while supporting deregulation “in principle” the Union had requested that price of petrol should first be reduced to N65 per litre while a committee should be inaugurated up to evaluate the entire subsidy
