Tumbling price of oil prompts Newfoundland and Labrador to tighten fiscal belt

Tumbling price of oil prompts Newfoundland and Labrador to tighten fiscal belt by Sue Bailey, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 23, 2012 4:48 pm MDT ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Kathy Dunderdale is freezing non-essential travel and other discretionary spending as her government faces a deficit that could top $600 million — up from a projected $258-million shortfall.Cabinet ministers have been asked to call off all but the most vital departmental travel in an effort to save tens of millions of dollars, Dunderdale said Monday outside the legislature.The measure is on top of a review announced earlier this year to cut administrative fat and inefficiencies across departments.At issue is the price of Brent crude oil which at around US$103 per barrel is far lower than the US$124 per barrel on which the provincial budget relies. And some analysts are predicting prices will stay low well into 2013 as economic woes in Europe reduce demand on the global market.“For every dollar that oil goes down, it has an effect of almost $20 million on our budget,” Dunderdale said. “So … if everything stays where it is now, our deficit could be up around $600 million or $700 million.”Dunderdale said she’s even more worried about 2013-14, when a deficit of almost $433 million is already projected.“If oil stays where it is, our deficit could be around $1 billion,” she said. “Now that’s a reality check for everybody in the province.”Dunderdale said she’ll be watching expenses closely over the next few months and some government job vacancies may not be filled. But she said it’s not yet time to consider deeper cuts to programs or services.Newfoundland and Labrador depends on offshore oil for about one-third of its revenues.Finance Minister Tom Marshall opted for two years of overspending rather than austerity as he tabled his budget last April. He blamed a $1.1-billion hole in the province’s finances due to a dip in oil production during refits and maintenance plus the loss of federal cash as the Atlantic Accord expired.The joint offshore management program with Ottawa put $536 million in provincial coffers last year.Marshall predicted a return to the black in 2014-15 with a $44-million surplus as higher offshore oil royalty rates kick in.The last budget was a far cry from surpluses worth $5.5 billion racked up in six of the last seven budgets —largely thanks to higher oil production and prices. It was also a sobering reminder of the province’s risky addiction to fossil fuels.Dunderdale said it’s a reality that bolsters the government’s support for the proposed $6.2-billion Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project in Labrador. The plan to harness power from the lower Churchill River would help wean the province off oil, she said.An all-party debate on Muskrat Falls is planned this fall before the government decides whether to go ahead.Some critics say the government squandered a chance to pay down more debt when it was flush with surplus cash. Before the price of oil dropped, net debt was expected to reach $8.5 billion by the end of next March. That’s up from $7.8 billion last year but down from a high net debt of almost $12 billion in 2004.“This so-called Conservative government has been throwing around money like sailors on leave for the last eight or nine years,” said Liberal Opposition member Jim Bennett.“And if they can’t manage prosperity, heaven help us when we hit a downturn like we’re going into right now.”The Progressive Conservative government anchored its budget, as it has for the last nine years, using an independent average oil price provided by New York-based consultant PIRA Energy Group.Bennett said the government should have considered at least two other forecasts before choosing a lower price to err on the side of caution. In the past, the government has been accused of low-balling oil prices to mute spending demands when surpluses wound up being dramatically higher than predicted.Dunderdale said the fossil fuel market is being dragged down by economic slowdowns in Europe, China and India.“I worry about it,” she said. “It doesn’t keep me up at night — it is what it is — and I think it just reinforces again our argument that we need to move from a place where we’re so reliant on the revenue from oil.”Provincial New Democrat Leader Lorraine Michael said Dunderdale’s suddenly dire fiscal forecasts expose a slap-dash approach to governing.“I don’t see this government really planning, and that’s what I find very disturbing. Everything seems to be reaction.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Scourge of sexual violence in armed conflict far from being rooted out

Briefing the Council’s open debate, which focused on the vulnerabilities of conflict-affected women and girls, Deputy UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Kyung-Wha Kang said that from Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya, to the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria, South Sudan, Sudan, Ukraine and many others, civilians caught up in armed conflict are being killed and maimed, fleeing their homes and fearing for their lives.“Now more than ever, the protection of civilians needs to be at the top of our priorities,” said Ms. Kang, explaining that at the start of 2014, humanitarian organizations appealed for aid to help 52 million people in urgent need of assistance and protection. By the end of the year, the number had gone up by almost 50 per cent to 76 million. Overwhelmingly, these people are civilians affected by conflict – and the majority are women and girls. Joined at the Council by Helen Durham, Director for International Law and Policy for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and Iwad Elman, of the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security, Mr. Kang said that currently, the average length of conflict-related displacement is now 17 years. “One of the worst examples of this is Syria, where half of the population has been displaced…but the numbers are growing elsewhere, for example in Darfur, where 450,000 people were displaced last year, adding to the more than two million people already in internally displaced persons camps (IDP) camps,” she continued, stressing that while the Council has taken action to bolster civilian protection and recognized the specific needs of women and girls, more overall measures are required as “the scourge of sexual violence in armed conflict is far from being rooted out.”Spotlighting several troubling examples of the “consistent and persistent” brutalization women face, Ms. Kang said that as militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (ISIL) have captured territory in Iraq and Syria, they have used and punished women to demonstrate their power. Women have been repeatedly raped, forced into marriage and sold into slavery. Nigerian women and girls have given harrowing accounts of their experiences at the hands of Boko Haram, she added. “Simply, crisis exacerbates gender inequalities. While entire communities suffer the impact of armed conflict, women and girls are often the first to lose their rights to education, to political participation and to livelihoods, among other rights being bluntly violated,” she continued, and such challenges are manifestations of deeper, systemic problems. “We need to better understand the social, economic and power dynamics which result in the continued enslavement of and use of violence against women, particularly in conflict situations. We must also make concerted efforts to expand women’s representation and participation in rule of law processes and protection mechanisms. Women must be included in the political leadership, security forces and accountability mechanisms in countries,” she said.To facilitate these efforts on the ground, 17 Women Protection Advisers have been deployed to six UN peacekeeping operations and embedded in the Offices of the Special Representatives. In South Sudan, the UN Mission regularly consults displaced women in the POC sites through consultation groups which have been formed. Those consultations help to ensure that prevention and protection strategies led by the mission take into account the perceptions and security needs of women. Yet much remained to be done, she said, and while the primary responsibility for protecting and assisting civilians affected by armed conflict lies with the parties to the conflict, many parties have demonstrated complete disregard for their obligations under international humanitarian law and human rights law. “In some cases, parties to conflict deliberately target civilians and use tactics designed to cause them the greatest harm possible,” noted Ms. Kang again drawing attention to Boko Haram, which she said had massacred hundreds of civilians and destroyed thousands of homes, schools and medical clinics in Nigeria during the past few weeks. This follows repeated incidents of kidnapping of hundreds of women and children. In Syria and Iraq, all parties have been targeting civilians based on ethnic and religious grounds. Despite this troubling context, she said, “International law is clear: parties to conflict are responsible for meeting the basic needs of persons under their control. Yet, time and again, we see parties to conflict violating these basic obligations with impunity, with grave consequences for civilians.” As such, conflict parties must be pressed to do more to comply with their legal obligations and ensure accountability whenever such obligations are violated. But the responsibility does not lie solely with the parties themselves. “This Council and the international community must take steps to tackle the impunity that continues to fuel many conflicts, as well as the endless flow of weapons and arms. There is nothing that emboldens violators more than knowing that they will not be brought to account for their crimes,” she declared, adding: “We also need to build up our collective capacity, to find political solutions to conflicts at an early stage, rather than struggling to cope with the consequences.”The efforts of humanitarian workers and peacekeepers are no substitute for timely and resolute political action to prevent and resolve conflict. And women must be full participants in the process, Ms. Kang stressed, as she urged stakeholders to be more attuned to the specific threats that civilians are facing and the risk of escalation of violence and violations, often manifested through heightened discrimination and repression of minorities, including against women and girls. “When we see early warning signs, we must be able to act quickly and effectively,” she concluded, drawing attention to the importance of the Secretary-General’s Human Rights Up Front initiative. read more

Late comeback falls short as Ohio State mens basketball loses at Indiana

OSU freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate in action during a game against Marquette on Nov. 18 in Columbus. Credit: Muyao Shen / Lantern photographerDespite a fast start, the No. 22 Ohio State men’s basketball couldn’t maintain its advantage in a 66-69 loss to the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday afternoon in Bloomington, Ind.The Buckeyes (13-4, 2-2) had a chance to tie the game with less than a minute remaining, as Sam Thompson went to the free throw line while OSU was only down by one. But the senior forward missed his attempt, and the OSU comeback against the Hoosiers (12-4, 2-1) fell short.OSU began the game with a 9-6 lead, aided by five Hoosier turnovers. Coach Thad Matta’s team remained in the lead until the 11:25 mark of the first half, when Indiana redshirt-junior guard Nick Zeisloft hit a three-pointer to give his team a 14-13 advantage.The Hoosiers built on their lead, eventually going on a 24-9 run to put them up 26-15. Eventually, the Buckeyes fought back to come within six at halftime, with freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate leading the team with seven points.OSU freshman guard D’Angelo Russell hit a three-pointer to open the second half, putting the Buckeyes within three. That was the closest they got until the 5:43 mark, though, when Thompson hit a floater to cut the deficit to only two.Then the Hoosiers managed another scoring run, this time a 8-0 spurt, which looked to have put the home team out of sight. But the Buckeyes fought back as the clock wound down, and they had their shot to get even when Thompson was fouled after a basket. Unfortunately for OSU, the senior’s attempt hit the back of the rim, and Russell’s attempt to tie the game at the buzzer was also off the mark.Senior guard Shannon Scott led the Buckeyes with 16 points, while Russell’s seven rebounds led the team on the glass.Russell, OSU’s leading scorer on the season, made three of his 15 field goal attempts, and only one of his five tries from beyond the arc.Freshman guard James Blackmon Jr. led the Hoosiers with 18 points, while sophomore forward Troy Williams led all rebounders with 12.OSU returns home on Tuesday to face Michigan. Tipoff against the Wolverines is set for 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Varadkar tells allmale lunch that real change requires courage

Ireland as she ought to be.”Read: Fianna Fáil criticises Tánaiste for ‘snubbing’ men-only dinner in Georgia THE MINISTER FOR Transport Leo Varadkar yesterday told an all-male lunch that Ireland should be “free and independent”.Speaking at the Hibernian Society in Savannah, Georgia, Varadkar said that Irish people should aspire to a country that includes everyone.“Catholic, Protestant, believer and non-believer, gay, straight, male, female,” Varadkar told the event, which caused headlines last year when Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore declined to attend.Varadkar recalled images of Robert Emmett in his speech.last_img read more

Ireland v France Well take 30 as well says underpressure Declan Kidney

first_img“Against England they ran the ball and kept possession better,” said Kidney. “They had one or two chances that ran abegging but there was not much in that game between the two teams. They were strong up front and I thought they were much more patient than they had been in the matches against Italy and Wales. One freak turnover (which led to England’s second-half try by Manu Tuilagi and set them up for a 23-13 win) decided the game.”For his own part Kidney thought the Irish too had been guilty of pushing too hard and making errors when they were in good positions against both England and Scotland.“Against England we set ourselves up well and got to level terms. We also put ourselves into good positions,” he said. “We just needed to execute better and be more patient. Sometimes you can try too hard,” he said.- © AFP, 2013In pictures: Paddy Jackson gets in some late kicking practice on Captain’s Run at Aviva Stadium IRELAND WOULD GLADLY take a 3-0 win over France in their Six Nations clash tomorrow, said under-pressure coach Declan Kidney earlier.Kidney and his France counterpart Philippe Saint-Andre are desperate for a win that will ease both the pressure on them and also fears of a wooden spoon.Kidney at least has one win to his credit this season — victory over last season’s Grand Slam winners Wales built around a stunning opening 43 minutes — but two narrow defeats since against England and Scotland has re-opened debate about his future. Thus it was in the same spirit that Kidney agreed with Saint-Andre, whose side have yet to register a win and are in danger of their first wooden spoon since 1957, that the narrowest of victories would suffice.“I’d take 3-0 as well,” said the 53-year-old. “I don’t think it will be because the games in the recent past have seen plenty of points scored.“You can never second guess things in the Six Nations. You are constantly surprised by the way things pan out. I believe the first 20 minutes will decide things. Who settles first will be crucial.”Kidney said he knew France were capable of playing far better than they have done already and saw some improvement in their last game against England.last_img read more

Contrary to Popular Belief Our Altruism Is Pretty Natural

first_imgStay on target One of evolution’s biggest mysteries, for a time, was altruism. It didn’t make sense to many early thinkers why one animal would ever choose to help another. That costs time and energy, and in the state of nature, those are very precious commodities. But, recently we’ve come to understand the phenomenon quite a bit. Lots of animals will help one another out in the short-term. If you come back from the day’s hunt without food and someone share’s a little so you’re not hungry, one day you’ll probably return the favor. Sharing that load makes things easier for everyone.But that’s not “true altruism.” True altruism means helping another without ever expecting them to help you back. Giving a stranger directions or holding a door open for someone carrying a stack of books are classic examples. And while that’s something humans do all the time, we had yet to find evidence of that in our closest relatives — chimpanzees. But, thanks to a new pair of studies, though, that may no longer be the case.Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany trained several chimps to pull different ropes and then paired them with another chimp, Tai, who had a different training regimen. Each had a different effect. One would give the pulling chimp a banana pellet (apes and their bananas, jesus), and the others would give her partner a pellet, give them both pellets, or pass the decision off the partner.Tai was taught to only pull the last rope — offering the other chimps a choice and putting herself at the risk of getting nothing in the process. But the others didn’t know she was taught to do that on purpose. As a result, most chimps could understand that if they pulled rope three, they’d be getting some food and rewarding Tai’s risk-risking.As a follow-up, the team wanted to see if some chimps would be able to recognize that Tai took a risk without necessarily expecting anything in return.“That kind of reciprocity is often claimed to be a landmark of human cooperation, and we wanted to see how far we could push it with the chimps,” study co-author Sebastian Grüneisen tells Science.To test this, scientists changed the rules. This time, when Tai passed her turn, subjects could choose to give themselves four pellets — and none for Tai — or they could choose to give both three pellets. Almost half the time the subjects recognized Tai’s altruism and chose to reward it — sacrificing a whole banana pellet in the process. That’s compared with 17% of the time when researchers made the first choice.“We were very surprised to get that finding,” Grüneisen says. “This psychological dimension to chimps’ decision-making, taking into account how much a partner risked to help them, is novel.”The second study is far more robust — using both observations of wild chimps, and collating data from almost 4,000 males over the past 20 years.One of the reasons scientists are so interested in chimps, specifically, is that they’re a bit like our rowdy cousins. They commit genocide, are one of the only other species on Earth that actually have “battles,” of sorts, and will outright murder and even cannibalize one another. Yeah, black widows and such do this too, but intelligence matters. Often chimps will kill or slaughter or beat others to death with clubs for no direct reason.To help protect their group, male chimps will often get together to patrol the borders of their band’s territory. What’s bizarre is that more than a quarter of the chimps studied didn’t have any direct family in the main group. They would sign up, essentially, to patrol without any direct incentive. The group didn’t punish those who opted out, and at least one-third of the time, encounters with rival groups end in bloodshed.From a raw evolutionary perspective, this doesn’t quite make sense. If you’re protecting your genetic kin, that’s one thing. That still fits within many evolutionary models. This doesn’t.To be clear, it also doesn’t upend evolution or anything. As of right now, evolution is among the most robust and best-supported theories in all of science. It’s so certain, we understand it better than almost all physical or chemical or other laws and theories in any other field. Evolution is, if you’ll forgive the corny analogy, an 80-ton gorilla dominating the skylines of science, 1930s King Kong-style.What it does mean, is that there’s more going on here. Those with emotional attachments that transcend strict evolutionary incentives do exist and will genuinely seek to help out those they care about — regardless of the consequences. Think of it like you wanting to protect your hometown, perhaps, even if your family and everyone you knew moved away. Your attachment may still be strong enough that you’ll go to bat for that old movie theater or take up arms should the need arise. Not everyone’s quite so selfless, but the assumption that people are doing for their benefit doesn’t quite either.“One of the most unusual things about human cooperation is its large scale,” study author Kevin Langergraber says. “Hundreds or thousands of unrelated individuals can work together to build a canal, or send a human to the moon. Perhaps the mechanisms that allow collective action among chimpanzees served as building blocks for the subsequent evolution of even more sophisticated cooperation later in human evolution.”Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Dr Web antivirus firm warns of new Mac Trojan

first_img For years, Mac users have felt nearly immune to malware attacks—such computers rarely if ever got viruses, much less Trojans. But those days are over Dr. Web says, noting that they’ve seen a steady climb in malware on the Internet targeting Mac users since the beginning of the year. Impacted by this new Trojan are users of computers running OS X, with Safari, Chrome or Firefox browsers.The Trojan is actually fairly straightforward, users wandering onto certain websites, attracted by the idea of watching movie trailers are told their viewing experience will be better if they install a program called “Free Twit Tube.” If the user agrees, they are presented with a familiar looking pop-up asking if they’d like to continue. If they do so, the Trojan will be installed into all of the browsers on the computer. Dr. Web notes that there are variants of the initial ploy used to entice users—some advertise a new media player, another promises to speed up downloads, etc. The end result for all of them is the same, the user is redirected to another page where they are prompted to download the program, which actually does nothing except install its Trojan app into all available browsers.Fortunately for Mac users, the Trojan.Yontoo.1 is both easy to spot and remove. It shows up as an app in all three browser types as “Yontoo,” and thus can be disabled just like any other app, or deleted from the computer altogether.The purpose of the Trojan appears to be a means for providing those that made it a way to create revenue for themselves by creating false page views by the people using the infected computers. Ads pop up on web sites that weren’t meant to be there, and the perpetuators of the Trojan receive credit for them. Dr. Web advises users to only ever download programs or apps from reliable and/or well-known providers.

Environment department rejects Pera Pedi development

first_imgThe environment department has rejected a plan for the development of a large forest area in the Limassol village of Pera Pedi on the Troodos range, reports said on Saturday.Media reports said the department has put a halt on the development, which involved an expanse totalling almost 200,000 square metres, of which construction would cover more than 24,000 square metres, including a hotel, a spa, five villas, a church, and a horse stable.According to the reports, the department said the development would irreparably and irreversibly affect the geomorphology and biodiversity in the area by razing over 2,100 pine trees – “an unprecedented deforestation by Cypriot standards.”The department also raises the risk of pollution of the water in the Kouris reservoir considering that the development is close to the Pera Pedi dam.The issue, which emerged late last year, also took a political hue after it transpired that land belonging to President Nicos Anastasiades and his family was included in the large tract of forest acquired by Parnitha Development Ltd, a company first set up in 1979 but now belonging to one Leonid Buryy, who has been granted Cypriot citizenship.The president owned approximately one-twelfth of a 83,279 square metre parcel in Pera Pedi which the developers bought. The company’s acquisition of the land involved purchasing some of the real estate from the president’s brother and sister.In the wake of the political controversy after the reveal, Anastasiades denied any wrongdoing and requested that the auditor-general investigate the case.The audit office said it uncovered no evidence that Anastasiades unduly influenced or stood to gain financially from a planned development.In its report, the audit office confirmed that the share of parcel 57 that was registered under Anastasiades’ name is not included in the planned development project.It also found no evidence of suspicious dealings between Anastasiades’ relatives and the developers.The price (per square metre) at which the plots were sold by the president’s relatives to the company were in line with – and in some cases lower than – the prices of adjacent parcels, some of which formed part of the planned development and others did not.Moreover, the auditor-general found that the share of the parcel owned by the president is not eligible for development because it lacks any road access, per regulations. This could change in the future, the report added.However, the report does point out an irregularity, in that the planning application for the development filed to the Limassol district town planning office on January 17, 2017 is not signed – as it ought to be – by all the registered owners of the land slated for the development.Specifically, the signature missing from the application is that of Anastasiades. His signature is required as well, because formally he is still part-owner of parcel 57, pending approval of a separate application for separation of the parcel’s plots.“It is, therefore, our position that the [planning] application should not have been advanced without Mr Anastasiades’ signature,” the audit office said.The report also raises questions about the granting of Cypriot citizenship to the Russian national  Buryy and his spouse via the investment-for-citizenship scheme.The citizenships were approved by a cabinet decision on December 14, 2015.Citizenship is granted to foreign nationals who buy a residence in Cyprus worth at least €500,000 and who “demonstrably participate in a special collective investment scheme, provided that the total value of the investment is at least €12.5 million.”The ‘collective investment scheme’ was the criterion by which Buryy and his spouse received Cypriot citizenship.But according to the audit office, the investments for which the naturalisations were approved appear to be unrelated, and therefore cannot be considered a collective investment scheme, and thus should have made the applicants ineligible for Cypriot citizenship.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoBOLT InsuranceCompare and Save on Auto InsuranceBOLT InsuranceUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

he says. the committee said. In a fact sheet about the institutes USDA notes that the participants should be chosen on a competitive basis and the institutes should build on university company and USDA infrastructure “Funds should go to research not to bricks and mortar” the department writes USDA is asking for funding for institutes that would work on biomanufacturing and bioproducts development pollination and pollinator health and antimicrobial resistance research to fill emerging information gaps There are many details to work out PCAST mentioned a few: “Such a structure needs to be built and will likely require a clear definition of research responsibility for each aspect of the research from conception to handling of data and publication An open environment of investigation and publication is usually most beneficial although the need to protect proprietary aspects of research must be considered for businesses to participate fully” The institutes appear to be a priority for administration officials They were mentioned in Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack’s public remarks about the budget and they were included in the agency’s core budget request not a separate $56 billion fund—known as the Opportunity Growth and Security Initiative—that Congress is unlikely to fully fund USDA may be covering the cost by trimming its intramural research arm which would decline under the budget request by 21% to $12 billion In line with recent administration efforts to boost competitive extramural funding however the proposed budget for 2015 would increase the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative by 28% to $325 millionNigerian Government has described the criticisms trailing the approval of $1bn for the fight against insurgency and other violent crimes in the country as unnecessary and unhelpful Minister of Information Culture and Tourism Alhaji Lai Mohammed at a news conference in Lagos said the Nigerian Governor’s Forum acted wisely in approving the fund from the Excess Crude Account based on the need to properly fund security operations in the country to adequately respond to threats by Boko Haram and other criminals Mohammed pointed out that the approved fund was not to fight Boko Haram in the North East alone but also to tackle kidnapping cattle rustling illegal oil bunkering and other crimes He expressed dismay that an action intended to make the country safer had been subjected to attacks by people with ulterior motives “There has been an unnecessary uninformed and highly-partisan criticism of the one billion dollars which was recently approved by the Nigeria Governors Forum for the military to tackle the security challenges facing the country including Boko Haram illegal oil bunkering kidnapping and cattle rustling “I said unnecessary and uninformed because everyone knows the role the military is playing in helping to tackle the numerous security crisis facing the states much less the war against Boko Haram “The fact that Boko Haram has been largely degraded does not mean the war is over As we have said times without number asymmetric wars like the one against Boko Haram do not end with an armistice “It is therefore curious that some of those who have criticised the $1bn approval have hinged their argument on the fact that the Boko Haram has been degraded “Perhaps also the critics do not know that fighting an asymmetric war is costlier than fighting a conventional war In any case wars especially the war against terror are never fought with budgetary provisions “It is common knowledge that the annual budgetary allocation to the military is not commensurate with the internal security challenges we face for which we have had to continuously rely on the military to assist the police and the Civil Defence Corps “When insurgents take over a chunk of our nation’s territory we turn to the military When the farmers/herders clash escalate we turn to the military When kidnappers up their game we turn to the military when illegal bunkerers and pipeline vandals are seeking to overwhelm our oil production and export we turn to the military “When ethno-religious clashes occur we turn to the military But when it is time to give the military the resources it needs to function we say it is a waste of scarce resources We come up with spurious reasons to deny the military its due “The Nigeria Governors Forum acted wisely in approving the withdrawal of one billion dollars from the Excess Crude Account to fight Boko Haram and other security challenges in the country “The one billion dollars is not too much to fight our security challenges Afterall security of lives and property is at the core of the existence of any government and the NGF understands this quite well going by its action in approving the withdrawal from the ECA” he said Further justifying the approval the Mohammed said military operations in the North East cost the country a lot of money He said the aircraft being used for the war including fighter jets and helicopters altogether consumed 6402108 litres of fuel per day amounting to N15153m daily to fuel the aircraft The minister said that spares for the aircraft from January to November 2017 cost a total of N20019m while consumables for the aircraft and here I am talking of engine oil plugs etc amounted to N 386m monthly Mohammed said that between November 5th to December 17th the amount spent on ammunition was over $5m “Since we are using the air force as a reference point here what about the cost of acquiring air force platforms For example the twelve Super Tuscano aircraft recently approved for sale to Nigeria by the US Government costs a whopping $490m yet this is Government to Government contract and the costs of spares ammunition and other consumables are not included “The costs stated above are for the air force alone and restricted to operations in the North East alone “We have not even talked of the army or the navy which are also fully involved in tackling internal security challenges in the country Neither have we included the operating cost of the Nigerian Air Force in the Niger Delta to curb pipeline vandalism in the North West to contain cattle rustlers in the North Central to curtail herdsmen and farmers clashes or kidnappings armed robberies and separatism in other parts of the country” the minister said Mohammed said there was nothing wrong in the opposition offering constructive criticism as democracy allowed freedom of expression He however said freedom of expression was not a licence for anyone to distort facts engage in crass sensationalism or bring partisanship to every issue especially that concerned security of the nation The minister said those who viewed this one billion-dollar approval by the NGF from the prism of partisanship were wrong cautioning that the military was arguably undoubtedly the most national of the country’s institutions and hence should not be dragged into partisanship Knudson 38 served as

(but) the onus is on Pakistan to create a conducive atmosphere for a constructive and substantive comprehensive bilateral dialogue" the minister added Swaraj said India’s "principled and consistent" position has been that the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of the Indian Union and that a part of the state is under "forcible and illegal occupation of Pakistan" In a written reply to another question the minister denied relations with Pakistan were tense in the last three years "It is not true that bilateral relations between India and Pakistan have been very tense during the last three years In fact during 2014 and 2015 there was considerable improvement in bilateral relations" she said Swaraj said during her December 2015 visit to Islamabad both sides agreed to a meeting at the foreign secretaries level to work out the modalities for a comprehensive dialogue However the terror attack at the Pathankot airbase in Punjab in January 2016 continued support to

Unfortunately the polity and the situation in Pakistan is such that not much headway takes place when it comes to things on the actual ground I am sorry to say "The limited takeaway was that a dialogue has started after a long gap" BSF DG KK Sharma told reporters on the talks that were held in Delhi recently A delegation of Pak Rangers led by their DG had visited the Border Security Force headquarters here for the bi-annual talks early this month "We had a meeting after about 15 months" the BSF DG said adding that itself is a "big achievement" Representational image PTI "Our relations

said The force said the IB especially in Jammu and Kashmir "witnessed 1020 incidents of ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces followed by numerous armed infiltration attempts" in the last one year Asked about erection of a similar smart fence along the Indo-Pak border the DG said a pilot project is currently on at two 5-km stretches in the Jammu area and the system will be in place by March 2018 To a question about the security of his troops who hail from Jammu and Kashmir and go home on leave the DG said appropriate advisories have been issued to its officers and troops "When people go on leave to their homes (in Jammu and Kashmir) we sensitise them that they should not publicise their visit It is also not possible to provide security to each and every person going on leave to Kashmir as we do not render law and order duties in the state "We have requested the local police and other agencies there to take care in this regard and hopefully things will improve" he said Sharma while taking a question on the recent deployment of uniformed troops during a marriage event in the family of a senior officer in Punjab said it was not a "misuse of the manpower and was a normal administrative duty" "In paramilitary forces such arrangements are made when the DG is visiting So if something has gone wrong I am guilty And you see this is nothing new by the way "Such traditions are there in the army and in all the forces It may have been blown out of proportion This is not a misuse of manpower" he said The place where the event took place is an administrative base (outskirts

return from a knee ligament injury against Osasuna earlier this month and missed last weekend’s win at Espanyol due to illness Real’s lead over Barcelona at the top of the table now stands at a solitary point having failed to bounce back from a 1-1 draw with Villarreal on Wednesday that snapped a 16-game winning streak in La Liga Of most concern for Madrid is their leaky defence as they have now kept just one clean sheet in their last six games "Sometimes there are games like this where you have the chances to win and you don’t take them" continued Zidane "I think there is a lack of concentration in the second goal I have to analyse it but I am not going to complain Playing like this for 90 minutes we will be at the top of the league I have no doubt" Gareth Bale had been the star member of Madrid’s front line most often sacrificed by Zidane in recent weeks as the Welshman was replaced in each of his last three outings However Bale looked back close to the form which saw him shine towards the end of last season and at Euro 2016 and believes Ronaldo will also need time to get back to 100 percent fitness following his two-month injury layoff after the Euros "He’s been working hard on his injuries since he came back" said Bale "He hasn’t had a pre-season like me and it takes a little bit of time" Bale is yet to score since the opening day of the La Liga season but insists the goals will arrive if Real continue to create the number of chances they did in the Canary Islands "We’re not happy to lose four points but if you look at the league overall we are in a good position" he added "You have to look at the positives Of course we are disappointed but we are still unbeaten We are still creating chances and if we keep doing that we’ll score plenty of goals"

more eye-catching players in the English team Hudson-Odoi joined Chelsea as an eight-year-old and ever since he has played in a higher age group In fact the youngster signed a three-year contract with the ‘Blues’ after an impressive debut season with the Under-18s which saw the club lift three trophies Hudson-Odoi followed that up by scoring for the under-23s against Manchester United in September

of a learning process particularly for the younger players in the team “I have to agree with the referee that it was actually a penalty (against ATK) and it happened due to inexperience When you are 18 (years old) you tend to make these mistakes; if not only 30 year or older players will play You have to learn from these mistake and be cautious in the penalty area” said the Chennaiyin FC head
