JU rank slip prods review of improvement areas

first_imgKolkata: Concerned over the drop in the ranking of National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), which was recently released, the faculty council for engineering and technology of Jadavpur University has decided to conduct a thorough review and identify the areas for improvement. The general meeting of the faculty council that is scheduled on Tuesday is likely to set up a committee in this regard.The Jadavpur University has been ranked 14th in NIRF ranking by the Ministry of Human Resource Development among the engineering institutions in the country slipping from the 9th position, which the varsity attained in 2017 and 12th in 2018.

This is applicable not only to the engineering departments but to all the departments in the varsity. The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) across the country are posing a stiff competition to us. We will examine the different parameters in the score-sheet and will accordingly prepare a road map for the journey forward,” a member of the faculty council for engineering said. In the NIRF ranking, the first eight spots have gone to the Indian Institutes of Technology. The Anna University in Chennai ranked 9th and the 13th spot has gone to IIT Indore, which is a new institution.

These teachers are already getting their projects sanctioned. All these projects will be completed in one year and the output will reflect by the beginning of next year. So we will be able to showcase our research output in a better way,” said the dean of engineering department of the varsity, Chiranjib Bhattacharjee. Members of the faculty council also pointed out that research funding for IITs is much higher than JU. “If there was a parameter in NIRF on output based on input then we would have surely ranked among the very best,” a senior member of the faculty council said. The Jadavpur University will be getting a fund of Rs 100 crore from the Centre under RUSA. A major chunk of the funds have already reached the varsity. The university is the first institute of higher education in the state to have received the grant, based on its NAAC accreditation for five years, beginning September 2014. RUSA is a scheme that provides financial aid to selected state universities to upgrade research facilities. More than 4,000 students are presently pursuing engineering at JU at the undergraduate level while in the post-graduate level it is more than 1,200. The total number of engineering students in the varsity is around 5,500.last_img read more

Mayan Trains fast track raising concerns in Mexico

MEXICO CITY — Maps, renderings and charts paper the walls of a government conference room. They lay out in detail the plans for a rail line that could be Mexico’s biggest infrastructure project in a century.President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has put the multibillion-dollar Mayan Train project on a fast track. He says it will provide an economic boon for the poor communities of Mexico’s long neglected southeast by bringing in more tourists and the hotels, restaurants and other businesses needed to serve them.Yet, among the papers on that wall at Mexico’s tourism development agency is a chart showing that the Mayan Train is being pursued at a pace that outside observers say could threaten its feasibility, the environment and the people the president wants to help.The chart in the Fonatur offices outlines planning, contracting and building times for 45 recent train projects in Canada, Australia, Britain and France. Those projects, which do not approach the Mayan Train’s length, averaged seven to 10 years to complete.And there’s the rub: López Obrador is limited to a single six-year term and wants the trains running before he leaves office Dec. 1, 2024. The chart says the nearly 950 miles (1,525 kilometres) of the Mayan Train will be finished in 4.8 years, with nearly all of the time savings coming from the planning and contracting phases.“Yes, we’ve skipped some steps, but we are forced to by the circumstances of the political terms,” said Rogelio Jiménez Pons, director of Fonatur who says government planners are also working with international experts and the United Nations. “It’s a six-year term, so if you don’t get at least a year of operation for the project it’s at serious risk.”López Obrador himself underlined that point by making one of his first presidential acts the cancelling of a partially built $13 billion new airport for Mexico City that was begun by his predecessor.The Mayan Train would circle the Yucatan Peninsula and drop a spur south to near the border with Guatemala. It would serve tourists and workers at Cancun and the glistening resorts of the Riviera Maya, but also haul cargo.López Obrador says the project will fulfil his dream of helping the people of the southeast and will display a new brand of inclusive development and respect for the environment. “Not a single tree will be felled,” the president has said — a promise that strains credulity for a project that is intended to travel through jungle, even if it is along existing right of way.An immediate question for many is whether planning and executing a megaproject can really be carried out so quickly. And what about its projected cost of $6.3 billion to $7.9 billion (120 billion to 150 billion pesos)?The Mexican Institute for Competitiveness, a public policy think-tank , published a study last month predicting the cost would come in at four times that — $25.3 billion (480 billion pesos).Its report also urged not to rush the project without careful planning.“There aren’t serious cost-benefit analysis studies, nor a study about demand, nor a serious study of bids that will really have a projection of this train,” said Ana Thaís Martínez, a researcher who wrote the study.She also noted that Mexico’s other recent rail project, a 36-mile (58-kilometre) commuter line between Mexico City and Toluca, is already 90% over its initial $2 billion budget and remains unfinished after more than six years of construction. It was supposed to be completed by 2017.Jiménez Pons, the Mayan Train’s point man, said the government will pay only about 10% of the project’s cost, while the private sector picks up the rest through what will essentially be costly contracts to operate the train service. Development around each of the line’s 15 proposed stations would be overseen by Fonatur, but by using real estate investment trusts the land would remain in the hands of property owners, essentially making them partners.The train’s cargo hauling service is to be its most important source of revenue, while passenger ticket prices are expected to be subsidized, Jiménez Pons said. Martinez’s report noted that running passenger and freight trains on the same line is complicated, and it suggested the government’s expectations for cargo revenue could be overly optimistic.There are also concerns about the environmental impact. New track would be laid through the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO-recognized area of wide biological diversity that is Mexico’s largest tropical jungle and home to important pre-Hispanic archaeological ruins. And the region is perforated by underground rivers and caverns.A Fonatur presentation based on a preliminary environmental study in the state of Campeche obtained by The Associated Press highlighted potential “critical impacts” on wildlife during construction of track, stations and associated tourism infrastructure. Some effects could be mitigated, but they would require careful study, it said.So far, people in the areas that would be affected say they have received little information about the project and its impact, even as land speculation surges around them. Jiménez Pons promises that all of the required environmental impact studies and public consultations with indigenous communities will be completed.Jiménez Pons has known López Obrador for decades and says the president has been thinking about this train for many years as a way to benefit the southeast.“This isn’t a whim, an imposition or because Mexico’s president is from the southeast,” López Obrador said in December at an indigenous ceremony in Palenque where he sought Mother Earth’s blessing for the project. “Above all it’s an act of justice, because it’s been the most abandoned region, and now the southeast’s hour has arrived.”Einar Jesús Medina Borges has been shuttling tourists around the colonial gem of Merida in a horse-drawn carriage since he was a teenager. The train sounds good to Medina, who heads the local carriage drivers’ union, because it could bring more tourists to his inland city. Still, he has concerns.“What we also have in mind is what ecological impact is this project going to have?” Medina said. “The people in charge of all this need to make sure it causes the least ecological damage, ecological impact, possible.”Another concern is not so much the train itself, but the tourist infrastructure that would be developed around proposed stations, especially one that would serve the Calakmul reserve. If government projections prove true, bringing 3 million annual visitors to an area that has only about 30,000 residents today would be a mammoth change.“The project has major ecological implications and the design has to change and the magnitude has to change so nothing serious happens,” said Jorge Benítez, an ecologist who has studied the reserve for years and published a paper on the potential impact of the train. He has joined a technical advisory board to the project and says officials have so far been receptive to his concerns and have even heeded calls to include the construction of wildlife corridors over the rail line.Jiménez Pons said environmental impact statements are beginning for areas, including Calakmul, where there are no existing railways — about half the proposed route. But the time pressure looms.“We’re racing the clock, but it’s possible,” he said.___Associated Press writer Peter Orsi in Merida contributed to this report.Christopher Sherman, The Associated Press read more

Ottawas multibilliondollar stake in General Motors could wipe out the federal deficit

That would mean a tidy net gain of $2.3 billion if the shares were sold at the current market valuation of about $3.4 billion.Pulling in $3.4 billion would also leave the government only $600 million short of breaking even on the original investment.Through repaid loans and previous sales of GM holdings, Ottawa has already recouped about $3.2 billion of its initial $7.2-billion contribution to the auto bailout, the Finance Department said.“We’re getting there, but we’re not at that level yet,” Mr. Dykstra said about the prospect of breaking even. He’s not aware of any government timetable to sell shares, he added.However, conditions show the stars could soon be aligned for the government to offload another batch — or the entire lot.Factoring in the exchange rate, Friday’s closing price for GM stock was $47.20 per share — a five-year high after conversion.By comparison, Ottawa sold 30 million GM shares in September 2013 at $37.96 per share, after conversion.This month, the Ontario government sold the last of its GM shares for $1.1 billion, cash it plans to invest in public infrastructure.The worst reason to sell GM shares is to help the government cover its little optics problem with a possible deficitLeslie Shiell, an assistant professor at the University of Ottawa who has studied the auto bailout, cited the Ontario case as an example of how it makes sense for governments to sell one asset in order to pay for another.Selling assets to generate revenue, however — “liquidating your wealth,” he called it — is less prudent, Shiell warned.“That’s selling the family silver to keep eating. That’s not sustainable.”Unifor, the union that represents 7,000 GM workers in Ontario, has urged Ottawa to hold on to the shares.The stock’s value could continue to rise, said Unifor economist Jim Stanford, who noted that remaining a shareholder would ensure the federal government has a seat at the company’s table.“The worst reason to sell GM shares is to help the government cover its little optics problem with a possible deficit,” Stanford said. OTTAWA — The Harper government’s push to deliver a balanced budget despite the burden of low oil prices has attracted fresh attention to a potential stockpile of federal cash: a multi-billion-dollar taxpayer stake in the auto business.The government’s remaining 73.4 million shares in General Motors are now worth more than $3.4 billion in total, thanks to the combined effect of a solid stock price and a weakened Canadian dollar.In fact, once the Canadian exchange rate is factored in on the U.S.-priced stock, its per-share value is higher than it has been in more than five years.The government needs to make $4 billion in proceeds from its remaining shares to break even on its initial investment, which would leave it only $600 million short if it sold the stock at current values.This month, Ottawa became the only North American government still holding stock acquired as part of the 2009 effort to bail out the then-sputtering automaker.Ontario’s recent sale of its last GM holdings may add to the federal government’s temptation to offload some — or all — of its own stock. The U.S. government sold the last of its stake in December 2013.A weaker Canadian dollar unlikely to save country’s ailing auto sector, execs sayGeneral Motors Co to raise quarterly dividend by 20% after big earnings beatRenewed interest in Ottawa’s stash of GM shares surfaced last month as one of several possible money-generating options that could help the Conservative government live up to its promise of balancing the 2015-16 election budget.Fulfilling the pledge will be central to Tory re-election fortunes. The government insists it will achieve a balanced budget even as lower crude prices indirectly carve billions of dollars out of federal revenues.Last fall, the government predicted a $1.6-billion surplus for 2015-16, but the price of oil fell even further in the months that followed and forced Finance Minister Joe Oliver to delay the budget until at least April.Mr. Oliver has even acknowledged achieving balance may mean dipping into Ottawa’s $3-billion contingency reserve, which was set aside for unforeseen circumstances.Selling the GM stock and booking the proceeds in the 2015-16 budget could help Ottawa offset the financial blow from the oil slump. Ottawa has reiterated its intention to eventually unload its shares.But Conservative MP Rick Dykstra — who represents the Ontario riding of St. Catharines, home to a GM plant — said any share sales in the coming months shouldn’t be connected to the balanced-budget objective.The government’s primary goal for holding the shares in the first place is to secure a good return for taxpayers and hopefully get back its initial investment, Mr. Dykstra said. It doesn’t need to sell them off to balance the books, he added.“If we were to do it, it would obviously be because it would be most beneficial to both the federal government and taxpayers.”In last year’s federal budget, the government promised to sell the shares in an “expeditious manner, while maximizing value for Canadian taxpayers.”So, how much does the government stand to gain?Ottawa initially booked the value of the stock at about $1.1 billion, according to the Finance Department. The net gain or loss from a sale would be the total proceeds minus the book value, a spokesman said.Daniel Acker/Bloomberg read more

Investigators work to dispel IRS claim that tea party targeting limited to

Investigators work to dispel IRS claim that tea party targeting limited to Cincinnati office by Stephen OhlemacHer, The Associated Press Posted Jun 7, 2013 8:49 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – Congressional investigators are starting to see cracks in the Internal Revenue Service argument that a small group of agents in the Cincinnati office solely targeted conservative political groups.Investigators, who are still in the early stages of their probe, have not uncovered any direct evidence that senior officials in Washington ordered the agents to target tea party groups, or why they may have done so.But two agents in the IRS’s Cincinnati office say they believe their work was being closely monitored by higher-ups in Washington. One agent, Elizabeth Hofacre, complained to investigators that she was being micromanaged by Washington when she processed applications for tax-exempt status by tea party groups, according to a transcript of her interview with investigators.Her interview suggests a long trail of emails that could support her claim.“It was demeaning,” Hofacre said. “One of the criteria is to work independently and do research and make decisions based on your experience and education, whereas on this case, I had no autonomy at all through the process.”The revelation could prove to be significant if investigators are able to show that Washington officials were involved in singling out tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. IRS officials have said repeatedly that the targeting was initiated by front-line agents in the Cincinnati office and was stopped once senior officials in Washington found out.A yearlong audit by the agency’s inspector general found no evidence that Washington officials ordered or authorized the targeting. However, the inspector general blamed ineffective management by senior IRS officials for allowing the targeting to continue for nearly two years during the 2010 and 2012 elections.In the latest IRS personnel move in the wake of the episode, the agency has replaced one official who helped oversee the workers who process applications from groups seeking tax-exempt status.An internal IRS announcement said Friday that Karen Schiller will have that job starting Monday. Until now that post has been held by Holly Paz.According to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., Paz was involved in an internal IRS investigation that in May 2012 essentially concluded that the agency had been targeting conservative groups. That was a year before the IRS revealed the targeting publicly.Paz has been a top deputy to Lois Lerner, a Washington official who oversaw the Cincinnati IRS division that processed conservative groups’ applications.Friday’s announcement did not address Paz’s status. Since President Barack Obama made Danny Werfel the new IRS chief last month, some IRS workers have been put on administrative leave, including Lerner.Three congressional committees and the Justice Department are also investigating. Investigators for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee have interviewed at least four IRS workers as part of their probe, including Paz.The Associated Press viewed transcripts of interviews with two IRS agents working in the Cincinnati office.Gary Muthert, an IRS agent there, said his local supervisor told him in March 2010 to check the applications for tax-exempt status to see how many were from groups with “tea party” in their names. The supervisor’s name was blacked out in the transcript.“He told me that Washington, D.C., wanted some cases,” Muthert said of his supervisor.Muthert said he came up with fewer than 10 applications. But after checking some of the group’s websites, he noticed similar groups with “patriots” or “9-12 project” in their names, so he started looking for applications that mentioned those terms too.Over a two-month period, Muthert said he found about 40 applications that mentioned tea party, patriots or 9-12 project — the latter being groups that aspire to re-instil a post-9-11 spirit of unity in the country.Muthert said his supervisor told him that someone in Washington wanted to see seven of the applications, so Muthert prepared the files.Muthert did not respond to multiple requests by the AP for comment.The IRS was screening the groups’ applications because agents were trying to determine their level of political activity. IRS regulations say tax-exempt social welfare organizations may engage in some political activity but the activity may not be their primary mission. It is up to the IRS to make that determination.Then-Commissioner Doug Shulman and Steven Miller, who was a top deputy at the time, told Congress that they didn’t learn about tea party groups being targeted until the spring of 2012. They said they didn’t come forward publicly until this year because the agency’s inspector general was investigating the matter.The inspector general’s report said Lerner, who headed the IRS division that oversees tax exempt organizations, had been briefed on the targeting in June 2011. She ordered the initial tea party criteria to be scrapped, but it later evolved to include groups that promoted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the report said.Lerner is the IRS official who first publicly disclosed the targeting at a legal conference in Washington on May 10.Hofacre, who also works in the Cincinnati office, told investigators she was in charge of processing applications from tea party groups — once they were selected by other agents — from April 2010 to October 2010. Hofacre said her supervisor in Cincinnati, whose name was blacked out in the transcript, told her to handle the applications.But, she said, an IRS lawyer in Washington, Carter Hull, micromanaged her work and ultimately delayed the processing of applications by tea party groups.Neither Hofacre nor Hull responded to requests for comment.___Associated Press writer Alan Fram contributed to this report.___Follow Stephen Ohlemacher on Twitter: http://twitter.com/stephenatap read more

Three Rs on the decline as a quarter of adults have a

first_imgThe traditional ‘three Rs’ are on the decline in England, analysis has revealed, with over a quarter of adults having literacy levels so low that they may struggle to read a bus timetable or a wage slip.Five million adults lack basic reading, writing and numeracy skills required in everyday life and to carry out a job, research by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation found.According to government figures, 28 per cent of adults have a standard of literacy of level 1 or below, the equivalent of GCSE grades D-G. For numeracy, 29 per cent of adults scored the level 1 or below.

How you like them apples Growers could be forced to rip up

Tim Bunting, Cider orchards Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Tim Bunting, Cider orchardsCredit:Jay Williams for the Telegraph In a tradition that dates back more than 700 years, Herefordshire is one of the biggest cider making regions in the world.But a trend toward sweeter flavoured fruit ciders is changing the face not only of the industry, but of the countryside in the West Midlands.A glut of apples means that big brewers such as Heineken are cancelling or not renewing their contracts with growers, leaving them with little options but to consider bulldozing the orchards. Some of the less traditional apple bush growers have already started to tear up their plants in favour of different crops, it is said.  –– ADVERTISEMENT ––James Forbes, chairman of the Three Counties Cider and Perry Association, said: “It is a very complex picture, but fundamentally the industry is moving further and further away from the use of apple as the principle ingredient in cider.”That seems very strange to say, but that is the case.”Cider must be made of at least 35 per cent apple juice, but the move toward flavoured or fruit cider – including strawberry and passion fruit – sees brewers using more flavourings and sugars and water to make up the rest of the drink. This means the traditional bitter sweet apple varieties, which are not suitable to eat straight from the tree, are no longer needed in the process in such great quantities.   “That is a real shame, your bitter sweet apples are what defines English cider and this is a fundamental shift away from that,” said Mr Forbes, who is the cider maker at Little Pomona.It is not only a change in the industry but a “change in the face of the Herefordshire countryside”, he said, adding: “Cider has been part of the Herefordshire landscape for a long time and it is a shame to see that go.”According to the Westons Cider Report 2018, regarded as the most authoritative review of the industry, the UK’s £2.98bn cider industry is the biggest in the world.But fruit ciders now make up 27 per cent of all sold, up from 0.08pc in 2005. At its current rate of growth it will represent 48per cent by 2023. Cider must be made of at least 35 per cent apple juiceCredit:Jay Williams for the Telegraph One grower who faces the prospect of having to tear up his traditional orchard is Tim Bunting, who has been at Grove Farm, in Kimbolton, Herefordshire since the 1980s.He did not plant the trees and the farm has been providing apple varieties such as Brown’s, Vilberie and Dabinet to the Bulmer cider presses for more than 60 years. He contributed up to 50 tonnes a year but was informed in February that his contract had come to an end and would not be renewed. He does not blame Bulmers – now owned by Heineken – which has had a good relationship with growers since local vicar’s son, Percy Bulmer, built the cider mill in 1887.  But without the business of the big brewers, Mr Bunting and his neighbours have few choices.When they realised Heineken would not be taking their crop Mr Bunting’s son, Rory, advertised for people to come and take the apples, but whilst they have had some interest from craft cider makers they still face an uncertain future.He is loathed to bulldoze his orchard so, as not only is it part of his living it is a habitat for animals, including two varieties of woodpecker, but also importantly “it is a pick me up”. “It is a thing to see,” he said. “When in spring all the blossom comes out life goes on again.”But like many of the traditional orchard farmers in the region, he grazes his sheep under the apple trees. If the fruit is left to drop and is eaten by the animals it could prove deadly.Craft cider – like that produced by Mr Forbes – is making a comeback but the market is nowhere near the size of the mainstream market.“There are opportunities for farmers out there,” Mr Bunting said. “But they are small and will not take up the glut of apples”.A spokesperson for Heineken said: “Heineken is committed to Herefordshire, investing £58m over the past few years to upgrade our operations. “We have positive long term relationships with our growers, supporting them to improve the productivity and sustainability of their orchards. “It’s no secret that there is an oversupply of apples across the industry driven by increased lifespan of orchards, bumper crops and changing market dynamics. “We’re working closely in partnership with our growers and are committed to ensuring a sustainable long term supply of cider apples.” Cider must be made of at least 35 per cent apple juice, read more

Is Nintendo Ending Production of the NES Classic Mini

first_img As you no doubt know, the NES Classic Mini is an extremely difficult to find game system. For reasons unknown, Nintendo didn’t manufacture enough units of this pint-sized console. If one were lucky, they could find the system at a store for $60. Others had to visit auction sites like eBay where prices could be considerably higher.It looks as though those eBay prices are about to get a lot higher. A NeoGAF user by the name of “Roarer” who claims to work for a “large Nordic retailer” posted that production of the NES Classic Mini is coming to an end.“According to them, production has ended, and we will be receiving a few more shipments before everything dries up,” says the post. “By our estimates, we (as a single retailer) might not be able to fulfill all orders that have been placed so far. Our last shipment should arrive in April or May, and after that, there won’t be any more shipments. I have heard from other retailers that they’ve received the same information. Some of them are emailing customers to tell them that their order might be canceled.”The user updated the post with a link to the Norwegian retailer’s Facebook page where they officially announced the cancellation of the NES Mini.As far as we know, this cancellation is only for Norway. However, it could also mean that production will soon cease worldwide. If that is the case, this would directly contradict what Nintendo had previously said. According to Nintendo’s President, Tatsumi Kimishima, the company was supposed to increase production of the NES Mini.“In November last year, we brought back the nostalgic Famicom and NES home consoles in palm-sized versions and shipped the entire quantity of Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer units we initially prepared for each market,” said Kimishima (via Chris Kohler on Twitter). “We apologize to our consumers and retail partners for the inconvenience caused by product shortages. Some parts require time to produce, but we are working to increase production.”We don’t yet have an official confirmation from Nintendo regarding the supposed cancellation of the NES Mini Classic.

DC Press Feds Detail Effects of Looming Shutdown Farm Bill Expiration

first_imgWith only two weekdays until a simultaneous government shutdown and farm bill expiration at midnight Tuesday, both Capitol Hill publication Roll Call and the Congressional Research Service (CRS) have examined the ramifications of the one-two punch on agriculture. Roll Call this week released an article detailing the potential impacts of a government shutdown on the U.S. Department of Agriculture, while CRS last week issued a report, pasted below, on which programs authorized or funded through the extended 2008 Farm Bill would continue, and which would cease in the event Congress allows the bill to expire on Monday night.With regard to the farm bill, the House has yet to begin the necessary procedure of marrying the two bills it passed as a result of separating the farm bill into separate food and farm pieces. It will need to do so before a bill can be sent to conference with the Senate. Additionally, Speaker John Boehner has yet to name conferees for those negotiations. ASA and other farm groups have been vocal in our demands that conferees be named and the process move forward.As for the Continuing Resolution, the fate of the CR in both chambers rests on the Senate’s ability to move its version off the floor and back to the House, and the House’s ability to pass a resolution that will likely lack its provision to defund the Affordable Care Act.As the process moves forward, ASA will keep members updated on developments, as well as projected impacts on soybean farmers.[gview file=”https://soygrowers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Expiration-and-Extension-of-the-2008-Farm-Bill.pdf”]last_img read more

Police 4 wounded in Bourbon Street shooting

first_imgNEW ORLEANS — Gunshots erupted in a crowd of bead-wearing, drink-carrying late-night revelers on Bourbon Street during the countdown to Mardi Gras, wounding four people and sending bystanders running and screaming. Hours later on Sunday, though, the same stretch was packed with partiers who said they weren’t letting the violence dampen their fun.In a video taken by a witness Saturday night and released the next day, the shootings are preceded by footage of people standing shoulder to shoulder in New Orleans’ famed tourist district, with some holding green plastic cups and wearing gaudy hats or masks. A section of the frame highlighted by police shows people jostling and speaking with angry expressions.Police said in an email that the video depicts an argument involving one of the shooting victims and the suspects. Two men are seen leaving the argument and returning with a third, then approaching the victim as at least one of the suspects begins shooting, according to police. Four shots are heard in rapid succession, followed by screams as some in the crowd stagger into one another and a nearby wall. A man whom police identified as one of the suspects is shown walking through the crowd with his arm extended as the gunshots are heard, though it’s difficult to make out a weapon.Police said Sunday that they were seeking the three men.The shootings wounded two males and two females. One male victim hit in the abdomen, thigh and pelvis was in guarded condition Sunday after surgery the previous night, New Orleans Police spokesman Frank B. Robertson said. The second male was shot in the buttocks, one female was shot on the chin and right foot, and the second female was shot on the toe, according to Robertson’s statement. Those three were in stable condition. No ages or names were released.The shooting came on the last weekend of partying before Mardi Gras, the Fat Tuesday celebration that is the signature tourist event of the year in New Orleans. And for thousands, the partying continued despite the shooting. Parades rolled under cloudy skies Sunday before crowds of onlookers, though the shootings were on the minds of some revelers.last_img read more

Designed and implemented by Parental Choice, the service provides access to a map of nurseries classed as good and outstanding located in a five-mile radius of the Enterprise headquarters in Egham, Surrey.Sarah-Jane Butler, founder of Parental Choice, said: “It is fantastic that Enterprise has identified the needs of working parents as a priority. The Parental Choice team and I are looking forward to making a real difference to Enterprise employees.“Choosing childcare can be stressful for new parents who decide to return to work, so we are confident our search service will assist in the smooth transition back to work for Enterprise parents.”UK employees will also have access to online childcare guides, employee talks and seminars relevant to working parents, as well as discounts on other Parental Choice childcare services, including searches for nannies, childminders, tutors and schools, as well as legal and payroll services.Leigh Lafever-Ayer (pictured), UK HR director at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, said: “We are pleased to partner with Parental Choice to help support our employees who are parents. We know that managing a career and parenthood is not always easy and our aim is that Parental Choice will help our employees in some of the difficult moments, such as finding childcare and dealing with the financial aspects, as well as sharing parenting tips.“We hope that this helps our employees find quality solutions that fit their individual needs perfectly.”The Parental Choice package complements other family-friendly benefits offered by Enterprise Rent-A-Car, including enhanced maternity and shared parental pay, career coaching for women prior to maternity leave, a phase-back programme with full pay for parents returning from leave, an adoption reimbursement benefit, and ‘choice time’ to allow parents to take paid time off to attend activities with their children or to take care of children when they are sick.last_img read more
