Mamata lashes out at BJP for denying ticket to Advani, says saffron party doesn’t respect elderly leaders
Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday slammed the BJP at the Centre, over denial of ticket to their veteran leader Lal Krishna Advani in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and said that the saffron party does not respect elderly leaders.”Senior leaders must not be ignored as old is gold. I feel sad for Advani ji. He is a senior man. Advani ji and Vajpayee ji are stalwarts of the BJP. But he has been left out. I feel very sad for this because if you cannot honour senior persons, you should not be disgraceful,” she told reporters at the state secretariat Nabanna.

For Advani ji, this might have been his last chance. I am feeling bad. Sometimes, I used to talk to him. I met him several times in the Parliament and at his residence as well,” Banerjee maintained. According to the Chief Minister, the BJP veteran is a mentor. “They have become so big that they have forgotten the old days. Everybody will be old one day,” she said, adding that it is her personal opinion that the move by BJP is an insult to the veteran Parliamentarian.

Banerjee also referred to the decision of releasing the biopic PM Narendra Modi just ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in the country, as a “clearly politically motivated one”. “It is better if I do not say anything. If somebody wants to release a film in his favour, let him do it. But if it is done just ahead of the election then the motive is very clear,” she said. “I think all my political party friends (Opposition parties) have already complained. There have been complaints against all the political pictures which have come out, be it the Accidental Prime Minister or this biopic. I think we must fight the battle politically,” the Chief Minister added.
Chicago– One third of Americans utterly reject the theory of evolution and believe instead that humans “have existed in their present form since the beginning of time,” a new survey has found.About a quarter of Americans believe that evolution was guided by God while only 32 percent of those surveyed believe that evolution is due to “natural processes such as natural selection,” the Pew Research Center found.The broad results were little changed from a similar survey in 2009, but Pew found a drastically widening gap along party lines. Some 54 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of Democrats said they believed in evolution in 2009.That ten-point gap more than doubled in the latest survey, which found that only 43 percent of Republicans believe in evolution while 67 percent of Democrats said humans have evolved over time.The views of political independents were essentially unchanged, with 65 percent believing in evolution.Evolution has long been a political issue in the United States, where science classes are a battleground between advocates of non-religious teachings in public schools and conservative Christians who push for curriculum that includes creationism or “intelligent design.”The debate has heated up in recent years as the so-called “culture wars” have reignited amid a deepening partisan divide.Differences in the racial, ethnic and religious composition of the Democrats and Republicans surveyed “do not wholly explain partisan differences in beliefs about evolution,” Pew said.“Indeed, the partisan differences remain even when taking these other characteristics into account,” the non-partisan research group said.However, it did find strong differences among religious groups.Two thirds of white evangelical Protestants believe God created humans in their present form while 78 percent of white “mainline” Protestants believe in evolution. Half of black Protestants believe God devised humans as they exist today.Nearly seven in ten white non-Hispanic Catholics and 53 percent of Hispanic Catholics believe in evolution.Meanwhile, three out of four religiously unaffiliated respondents believe in evolution and just 13 percent of them believe evolution was guided by a “supreme being.”The results released Monday were drawn from a telephone survey of 1,983 adults conducted March 21 through April 8 that has a margin of error of three percent.

“The Secretary-General has been named this year’s recipient of the Philadelphia Liberty Medal for his role in promoting peace, social justice and economic development,” spokesman Fred Eckhard told reporters at UN Headquarters in New York. The award, which is given in recognition of achievement by civic, government and business leaders, includes a cash prize of $100,000 that Mr. Annan intends to contribute to the AIDS fund. “The Secretary-General’s donation would be the first to the global fund, which is expected to cover a good portion of the $7-$10 billion required annually to deal with AIDS worldwide,” Mr. Eckhard said.The Secretary-General will receive the award at Philadelphia’s Liberty Hall — where the United States Declaration of Independence and Constitution were adopted — on 4 July, marked in the US as Independence Day.Mr. Annan first proposed the creation of the global fund in a call to action he delivered last month at the African summit meeting in Abuja, Nigeria. Subsequently, he took his rallying cry against AIDS to the Philadelphia-based US Council on Foundations.Tomorrow, the Secretary-General will hold a teleconference during which heads of UN agencies directly involved in the fight against AIDS will report on their increased efforts to tackle the pandemic. “In a nutshell, the Secretary-General will make sure that all agencies are in the same war footing against the disease,” the spokesman said. He noted that the participants would also review the latest developments concerning the establishment of the global fund.

Samsung is celebrating the arrival of the Space Shuttle at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum in New York with a 5-day event called SpaceFest. Today is the first day of SpaceFest, and Samsung has used it to launch the 75-inch ES9000 Smart TV.Announced earlier this month, the ES9000 will only fit in the biggest of TV rooms, but certainly promises a cinema experience. With a bezel that’s just 7.9mm thick and that has no visible seams, you’d be hard pressed to notice it while watching.Even so, Samsung has managed to hide a camera in the upper part of the bezel. That camera allows for a number of new features being added to the Smart TV including video calling through Skype. What we didn’t expect was the ability to control the ES9000 purely with gestures as well as having it recognize your face.Samsung is making the most of the gesture control system by offering a free version of Angry Birds that will be motion controlled. It won’t be available until later this month, but if you own one of Samsung’s 2012 LED 7500 or Plasma 8000 models or above, you will be able to grab it from the Samsung app store.As is now expected on new TVs, the ES9000 displays 3D content and Samsung has decided to include 4 sets of glasses to cater for a typical family. Using the Smart TV features, including surfing the web, should also be quite a speedy affair as Samsung opted for a dual-core processor to power the TV.Of course, a 75-inch Smart TV was never going to be cheap, and you can expect to pay around $9,999 when the ES9000 becomes available to purchase next month.

Media organisation the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has agreed to align median pay for off-air journalists who work at its BBC World Service and BBC Monitoring businesses with employee counterparts who are based at BBC Network News.The pay increase, which will be backdated to 1 August 2017, will apply to BBC World Service and BBC Monitoring staff who work in off-air journalist roles at pay grades two to 11 in the UK. The pay rises will be awarded in line with the BBC’s annual pay settlements, as well as in conjunction with the pay proposals that are currently being consulted on in the organisation’s terms and conditions review.The BBC confirmed the pay increase after results from its World Service pay review, conducted by professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), found differences in pay between off-air editorial employees working at BBC World Service and BBC Monitoring compared to those working at BBC Network News.The review cited historic and economic reasons for the pay differences. For example, historically, the BBC World Service and BBC Monitoring have operated separately to BBC News, and were funded by the UK government rather than via licence fees. PWC’s review further noted that staff employed in the BBC Network News division operate in a different market environment from BBC World Service and BBC Monitoring employees. This provides BBC Network News staff a wider range of career opportunities both inside and outside of the BBC, creating different labour markets.The World Service pay review is distinct from the BBC’s ongoing equal pay audit and gender pay report. Additionally, the BBC will address presenter and on-air employee pay as part of a separate on-air pay review.James Harding, director of BBC News and Current Affairs, said: “We want a BBC where people move around and between our newsrooms. We believe a wider range of voices at work across BBC News will ensure we reach more stories and keep connected to everyone. To help make this happen, we have decided to align median pay.”

Stray dogs menace claims life of a 15-year-old girl in Kerala. [Representative image]Reuters file [Representational Image]A newborn’s body was eaten by stray dogs at a government hospital in Tamil Nadu’s Hosur district. The family members are blaming the hospital authorities for the incident.According to reports, M Nagamma, a resident of Karnoor village in Krishnagiri, had given birth to a boy at the government hospital on Wednesday. The child was born underweight and was kept for observation at the neo-natal intensive care unit. Unfortunately, the boy died on the same night.The body was handed over to the mother. The baby’s kin had planned to transport the body for final rites on Thursday. But other patients objected to keeping the baby’s body in the ward and then Nagamma’s relatives wrapped the body in a plastic bag and kept it in the toilet.However, the bag was reported missing the next morning. When the relatives asked the hospital staff, they said that the bag might have been dumped in the garbage by workers.Meanwhile, people found stray dogs mauling the body of the newborn and informed the hospital staffs, reports Deccan Herald.The hospital staff took the body and kept it at the mortuary for post-mortem. The dogs had nibbled away a major portion of the baby’s face, legs and hands, added the report.After completing the procedures, the baby’s body was handed over to his kin. It is also alleged that the body was dumped by the child’s relatives. A case has been filed over the incident.
The Kids’ Video Games Are All Right at NYU Game Center Student ShowcaseAt GDC, Everyone Wants to Be on Nintendo Switch What sounds like a spoiler for upcoming indie movie Brigsby Bear is really just the premise. But if you’re especially sensitive look away now.Brigsby Bear stars Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney as James Pope, a man who unknowingly spent his entire life raised by kidnappers only to be returned to his real family. As he awkwardly attempts to integrate into the real world, he discovers his beloved TV show obsession Brigsby Bear was actually a thinly veiled scheme by his fake parents to control him with blunt and bizarre life lessons. It’s like a cross between 2015’s Room and my own Street Sharks prank.It sounds silly, and it often is but the film grapples with the legitimate tragedy at the heart of its comedic premise, even if there are few real consequences. Instead of your typical man-child, Mooney’s James is more Kimmy Schmidt as played by Napoleon Dynamite, using weird yet earnest obsessions to deal with actual mental trauma. And rather than have the young people James relates to wind up cruelly mocking him, the film unironically promotes some really chill teen bonding. The entire movie (co-written by Mooney) hinges on Mooney’s performance, and he does an admirable balancing sweet, off-putting, funny, sad, and sheltered but not pathetic or annoying to the point of cringe-worthy.Then there’s Brigsby Bear himself. Looking like a Five Nights at Freddy’s character come to life, the fake TV segments provide some excellent surreal children’s TV schlock. Brigsby is like Barney the Dinosaur starring in Flash Gordon serials (or low-budget public access Star Wars, which then makes the casting a great meta-joke). There are wizards and spaceships and evil faces in the Sun. And most are voiced by Mark Hamill, who also plays James’s kidnapper fake father. Who wouldn’t want him as a dad? More than a nerd delight, it’s a great use of Hamill as both an accomplished screen and voice actor. Plus he’s got his Old Luke Skywalker thing going on now.The extensive, confusing, stupid Brigsby Bear lore serves a real point in the narrative, and not just because Mooney constantly saying “Brigsby” like a vocal tic is always funny. James is obsessed with the show since it was the only thing he knew growing up. He’s memorized all the tapes and storylines. But when he discovers the show is never returning since the creators are in jail, and that all the other “fans” were his kidnappers role-playing, he wants to share his obsession with the real world. Once he learns that movies exist, he tries to create a Brigsby Bear finale movie, and his quiet but unbridled passion gets him support from others, even if they doubt this is the best thing for his mental health.In these sections Brigsby Bear becomes an intriguing allegory for how to relate to art. For fandom, art is made by these inscrutable surrogate gods/parents that sometimes hurt them. James can’t help but turn his Brigsby script into an accidental metaphor for his kidnapping, similar to how outsider artists can’t help but put their own obsessions into their work. But the art is still meaningful to them, meaningful enough to want to reclaim. The shared joy and cathartic therapy of making art, even “bad art,” is what ultimately cuts through very understandable conflicts and unites the characters. Images of James in a giant cartoon head also recall the Michael Fassbender film Frank, also about a strange and introverted but sweet outsider artist.I feel very strongly that art largely belongs to its original creators and that fans need to accept their subservient role in that relationship, but I can admit that Brigsby Bear makes a compelling argument against that. As someone who also suffered a great deal attempting to make a schlocky movie for the internet with young friends, I related a lot to James’s struggle, even if my journey never involved me living out One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.Speaking of my student film, after my viewing I did notice that Brigsby Bear is very much the kind of slight indie movie I saw many peers attempt to make at film school, and not just because Mooney sort of looks like those peers. Sure it has famous actors and backing from Lord & Miller as well as The Lonely Island, but the basic arc is the same when you get reductive about it.A quirky, sad guy and the square “normal” people in his life meet each other halfway and teach each other about really living, with laughs and tears along the way. Think Our Idiot Brother or Safety Not Guaranteed or Martian Child or Radio or K-Pax. But it’s a formula that works, and Brigsby Bear fills it with such great specific and funny details (and Tim Heidecker) that I didn’t let the familiarity bother me all that much. And again, it has Mark Hamill voicing a creepy animatronic bear, so how can you go wrong?Brigsby Bear expands to more theaters July 28th.Now here are some of our other favorite famous fictional bears.View as: One Page Slides1/121.
