The Tribal University will provide instructional and research facilities in tribal art, culture and customs and advancement in technology to the tribal population of India. At present, there is no central university in Andhra Pradesh while other states, except Goa, have one or more such institution. Setting up a central university and a central tribal university in Andhra Pradesh is obligatory under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014 for creation of Telangana. Participating in the discussion, K Suresh (Cong) said that the bill has not mentioned about detailed funding mechanism and funding of universities have remained an issue in the country. There is also no mention about curriculum and administration of these two universities in the bill, he said. He added that it was also not mentioned whether tribals would get reservation in the central tribal unversity. “The NDA government is known for reducing funding for central universities,” he said, adding there are several vacancies in different universities not yet filled. Rajiv Pratap Rudy (BJP) took a swipe at the TDP for questioning the intentions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. TDP, a former ally of NDA, currently has only 3 Lok Sabha members at against 15 in 2014. He also expressed concern over rise in number of students in coaching centres. Coaching centres have become a big business in the country, he said, adding as per a study, out of four students, one is going for tuitions. He demanded granting of central university status to Patna University and Jai Prakash University in Chhapra. Saugata Roy (TMC) said the Delhi University is one of the best in the country. He said unless the number of seats is increased in the university the “terrible pressure” would stay. He said the cut off marks for its enrollment are touching 95 per cent, 98 per cent and 99 per cent. He also alleged that the Nagpur University is including history of RSS in its curriculum. “Let the university not work on RSS agenda but on national agenda,” he added. Lavu Sri Krishna (YSRCP) said that a central university should attract students and faculty from all parts of the country.

Delegates from some 120 countries today opened a United Nations-supported meeting in Tunis to discuss plant genetics and food resources, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said.Participants at the five-day meeting, the third session of the governing body of the 2004 International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, are seeking agreement on ways to further speed up the benefit-sharing aspects of the Treaty, FAO noted in a press release. “No country is self-sufficient in plant genetic resources; all depend on genetic diversity in crops from other countries and regions. International cooperation and open exchange of genetic resources are therefore essential for food security,” stated the agency. “Climate change has made this challenge even more pressing as there is a need to preserve all the crops developed over millennia that can resist cold winters or hot summers. “Yet, agricultural biodiversity, which is the basis for food production, is in sharp decline due the effects of modernization, changes in diets and increasing population density.” The agency said about three-quarters of the genetic diversity found in agricultural crops has been lost over the last century, and this genetic erosion continues. 1 June 2009Delegates from some 120 countries today opened a United Nations-supported meeting in Tunis to discuss plant genetics and food resources, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said.

Specifically, we’ve been looking for pitchers that replicate some of the success of Hall of Famer Goose Gossage, for whom the goose egg is named. The “firemen” of Gossage’s day didn’t care as much about recording saves. Instead, they pitched in as many high-leverage situations as they could get their hands on: for instance, in tied games, or in the seventh or eighth innings when the situation demanded it. Pitchers like these provided a lot more value to their teams than modern closers who are often used exclusively in save situations. (The goose egg credits pitchers for clutch, scoreless relief innings, whether or not they’re save situations.)From the standpoint of overall bullpen usage patterns, there have been signs of progress around baseball. Major-league teams are placing less emphasis on the save and instead using their best relief pitchers in smarter ways.But no individual pitchers have come close to replicating the workload and value of Gossage, who accumulated a record 82 goose eggs — in 141.2 innings pitched — in 1975. In fact, no pitcher has yet earned even 40 goose eggs so far this season.The major-league leaders are the Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen and the Brewers’ Corey Knebel, who each had 38 goose eggs through Thursday night. Seattle’s Edwin Diaz leads the American League with 33 goose eggs, having helped lead the Mariners to a 25-13 record in one-run games.Knebel has had an outstanding season by any measure, but it’s been a fairly conventional one. The Brewers have dabbled with using him in Gossage-like situations — he’s made seven multi-inning appearances, for instance — but haven’t done so all that consistently.The Dodgers have gone a little further down the goose-feathered road with Jansen, who has 12 multi-inning appearances. The team has also avoided using Jansen with leads of three runs or more, which are usually a waste of an elite reliever’s talents. (A three-run lead is a save situation but not a goose situation.) And Jansen has been remarkably efficient, having converted all 38 of his goose opportunities. Still, Jansen is on pace for only 70 innings — typical for a modern closer, but only about half as many as Gossage threw at his peak.And some pitchers who were handling heavier workloads earlier in the season have seen their teams let up on the gas pedal — or have gotten themselves hurt. An early goose-egg favorite, the Astros’ Chris Devenski, has settled into a more conventional usage pattern as the season has worn on instead of routinely pitching two or more innings at a time. The Indians’ Andrew Miller has been on the DL twice in the past month.So the opportunity to see a truly Gossage-like season won’t happen for at least one more year. In the meantime, you can find complete goose stats for all pitchers this year in the table below.

The production company initially… Ms Maizels is the creator of Pop-Up London, which features paper replicas of Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and other London landmarks. Notably, it includes a model of Tower Bridge that opens for a ship to pass through. The book was published in 2011 and became a best-seller. It is the plot at the heart of the latest Paddington film: a pop-up book of London that leads to all sorts of drama for the bear from Darkest Peru. That pop-up book is also causing trouble behind the scenes. Jennie Maizels, an award-winning illustrator, claims the designs bear more than a little similarity to her own, and wants the film-makers to acknowledge that they copied her ideas.
Yes (222) FORMER FINANCE MINISTER and former IBRC Chairman Alan Dukes told Newstalk’s Breakfast that bankers’ pay needs to be attractive in order to entice the right, skilled people to the job to help in the recovery of Irish banks.His remarks come after it was revealed the chief executive of Bank of Ireland Richie Boucher received a total pay packet worth €843,000 last year – despite the bank posting a pre-tax loss of over €2.1 billion.The sum makes him the highest paid banker in the country.Should loss making banks be allowed pay such large sums to its executives? Do we need to keep bankers’ pay packets high so they don’t leave for higher paid positions elsewhere? Should bankers’ pay be considered in the real-world of the banking market following the Mercer Report which revealed that top bank bosses in Ireland were paid below their international counterparts?So today we are asking, does bankers’ pay need to be high to attract the right people?

Sur les 3.500 tigres sauvages restants, 100 sont tués chaque annéeUne ONG internationale de lutte contre le trafic des espèces menacées a publié un rapport selon lequel 1.000 tigres, pourtant intégralement protégés depuis 1987, ont été tués durant ces dix dernières années. Les écologistes dénoncent un manque de volonté politique et préconisent des mesures plus efficaces.Peaux, os, griffes : 275 saisies douanières (environ 500 tigres abattus) pour l’Inde, 40 saisies (124 animaux) pour la Chine, 39 saisies (environ 120 félins) pour le Népal… Au total, ce sont les rapports de 481 saisies en douane (représentant la mort de 1.069 à 1.220 tigres issus de 11 des 13 pays abritant encore des populations du grand félin), qui ont été épluchés par le réseau Traffic International, qui travaille avec le WWF.À lire aussiVoilà à quoi ressemblent les cris de petits rhinocérosMalgré les mesures de protection et de lutte contre le commerce illicite, les 3.500 tigres subsistant encore à l’état sauvage subissent une pression de braconnage toujours aussi forte, destinée à alimenter le marché clandestin de dépouilles pour la pharmacopée traditionnelle. Les fermes d’élevage chinoises, théoriquement non autorisées à vendre des organes de tigres, le font malgré tout, encourageant une tradition dont pâtissent les félins sauvages, encore plus “appréciés”.Les associations environnementales pointent du doigt un manque de volonté politique de la part des pays concernés, et préconisent une mise en commun des informations sur ce trafic, un durcissement des sanctions, jugées insuffisamment dissuasives, et une action concertée pour réduire la demande en Asie.

Total calls, through July 17: 6,518.Average weekday NextRide calls: 240.5 per day.Average weekend NextRide calls: 213.5 per day.Largest total: 317 on July 16.Smallest total: 152 on June 20.CALLS BY ROUTENo. 4 (Fourth Plain): 1,773.No. 37 (Highway 99/Mill Plain): 1,721.No. 32 (Hazel Dell/Evergreen/Andresen): 867.No. 30 (Burton): 788.No. 44 (Fourth Plain limited): 764.Source: C-TranAbout a month after its launch, C-Tran’s new “NextRide” system appears to be gaining traction. The automated bus-tracking service has fielded more than 6,500 calls since it came online June 20, according to C-Tran.The biggest day so far was Saturday, when NextRide received 317 calls.“As word continues to get out, we certainly expect those numbers to grow,” said Scott Patterson, C-Tran’s public affairs director.Here’s how it works: While waiting at a bus stop, passengers can call C-Tran’s passenger service number, 360-695-0123, to reach NextRide. Enter a four-digit stop ID number posted on the sign, and NextRide will estimate the time until the next bus arrives. If there’s no ID number posted — not all stops have them yet, Patterson said — a series of automated prompts direct callers to find their stop before giving the arrival time of the bus.The system uses GPS tracking devices installed on C-Tran’s fleet a few years ago, keying on bus location and speed to create an arrival estimate. With similar services offered by other transit districts, including Portland’s TriMet, NextRide was a logical step for C-Tran, Patterson said.“We get calls from passengers quite often wondering if their bus is on time,” Patterson said. “It’s more the direction the industry is going, and we knew it would be a highly valued item.”NextRide’s numbers appear to support that. The volume of calls has followed a generally upward trend since the beginning, according to the data.

With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio. 3 More From Roadshow 68 Photos More From Roadshow Comments 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck Recalls Kia 49 Photos 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle Head for the mountains in the 2020 Kia Telluride More about 2019 Kia Forte 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. 71 Photos 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 69 Photos Comments Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 26 Photos 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch 52 Photos Kia,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model 81 Photos Tags Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 10 Photos Share your voice Preview • 2019 Kia Forte: Stinger style and more tech 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks Car Industry SUVs Sedans 12 Photos 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Review • 2019 Kia Forte Review Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama.

Kia Sometimes, a part of the recall process might not go as smoothly as planned, necessitating a second recall for the same vehicles. That’s the case with Kia’s latest recall.Kia this week announced a voluntary recall for approximately 68,000 examples of three models — the 2011-2014 Optima, the 2012-2014 Sorento and the 2011-2013 Sportage. All the vehicles included in this recall were part of a previous recall that involved an engine replacement.The purpose of this second recall is to inspect and, if necessary, remedy a problem in the fuel system. During the engine replacement in the initial recall, the high-pressure fuel pipe might have been “damaged, misaligned or improperly torqued,” which could lead to a fuel leak, increasing the risk of an engine fire. In a bit of good news, Kia said it’s unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the problem.The recalled vehicles will need to return to dealerships after owners receive their recall notifications via first-class mail. Technicians will inspect the high-pressure fuel pipe connections and, if leaks are found, replace the pipe with a new, correctly installed piece. Kia promises that, this time around, it will issue very detailed installation instructions, including a video, which should prevent the same problem from happening yet again. Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama.

Stay on target Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech SuitsRobots to Compete in Underground Challenge in Mining Tunnels The Dubai Police have a new recruit patrolling its streets today, but it’s not a graduate of the UAE’s Police Academy. This one was assembled and programmed specifically to meet the department’s needs.Gulf News reports that it’s the “world’s first operational robot policeman.” The five-foot-seven bot weighs in at approximately 220 pounds, and it’s equipped with cameras, an array of sensors, and a sophisticated AI. Always-on connectivity ensures that the Dubai Police can keep tabs on its whereabouts. They can also tune into a live video stream as the robot makes its rounds.A police spokesperson said that bot’s primary function is “to assist and help people in the malls or on the streets.” That’s only part of what it does, however. Dubai already has an extensive network of CCTV cameras that are plugged into a facial recognition system.The police bot will be connected with that system, too, in order to help its human counterparts identify criminals and bring them to justice… though it’s worth noting that this robocop isn’t equipped with a sidearm and won’t be taking part in any ED-20-style shootouts. Not for the foreseeable future, anyway.Dubai’s version looks just a teensy bit more friendly than an ED-209For now, it’ll be focusing more on providing assistance to the public. With the ability to communicate in six different languages and a large tablet embedded in its chest, the police bot can provide all kinds of helpful information. It can also helpfully take credit card payments on the spot, so perhaps you’ll even be able to settle your tab for infractions such as parking your Aventador in a loading zone.

To access user-made filters on Instagram, users can scroll down to the end of the filter tray in Stories, and click the “Browse More Effects” option.Clicking on the button will open a new interface that lists down all the effects available. Filters are based on specific types or topics of the effects. After a preview of the filter or effect appears, tap on “Try it” to enable the design, or save the filter on a device for later use. Spark AR Studio is also easy to use and allows drag-and-drop functionality for creating and publishing filters on the site.Instagram will also introduce a new Effects Gallery that will enable the sharing of user-created filters with friends and followers. A small tag at the bottom of the filter will make sure that original creators get full credit for their work even if the AR filters or effects go viral. Users can also follow the work of their favorite creators.Last year, Snapchat also opened access to its Lens Studio and created the Lens Explorer to make it easier to find user-made AR lenses.

admit it, when you first heard of people only through the Internet to send an email, you can put yourself room to other people, will definitely feel that this is a crazy idea, perhaps somewhat a feeling with hair standing on end. However, what people are particularly willing to do now is the so-called "sharing economy". For example, if you press a few buttons on your phone, you will have a fashionable black Uber car to pick you up. Now you can walk into a stranger’s room, stay there for a few days, and pass your keys home to someone else via the internet.
