A group of 131 academics, intellectuals, professionals and civil society leaders in Assam have sought rescheduling of hearings for National Register of Citizens applicants who have been issued notices to have their citizenship documents re-verified within a very short time.In an appeal to the Supreme Court, which has been monitoring the NRC updating exercise, the 131 signatories said the “sudden, suspicious and mischievous” notices have created panic among a section of the people who were included in the draft NRC published on July 30, 2018.“The people of Assam have been supporting the NRC updating process and participating in the hearings and verifications, sometimes even by paying huge costs in terms of time, energy and financial resources. Nevertheless, they are ready to go through any verification whenever required for the greater interest of an error-free and just NRC,” said the appeal to Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi submitted to the court’s Registrar on Tuesday.‘Panicky situation’“However, we would like to draw your kind attention regarding the panicky situation created by suspicious and mischievous notices served to NRC applicants for reverification by the NRC authority in Assam. Now notices are being served to people and they are asked to go in far-flung areas with a short notice of one or two days,” the appeal reads.Also Read Protest against NRC reverification notices “The people of Assam in general and people living in riverine areas in particular have experienced one of the worst floods in recent years. They are struggling to cope with the losses and many of them are still living in temporary relief camps. Under such circumstances, if these people are asked to attend the NRC hearing giving them just one or two days and summoned to 500-600 km away from their homes, there is little doubt that a large number of them wouldn’t be able to attend the hearings,” the signatories said.‘At least a week’They asked the court to direct the NRC authority to reschedule the hearing either within the district or within adjoining districts and provide at least a week’s time so that the applicants could attend the hearing and complete the process within the August 31 deadline.“Kindly direct the NRC authority to make the notice available on the Internet along with the physical serving so that people living in other States can also access the same and attend the hearing accordingly,” the signatories said, also seeking instruction to the district administration to provide basic transport facilities in the greater interest of an error-free and fair NRC.
Ex-Real Madrid GM Valdano: Isco must do some soul searchingby Carlos Volcano9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano says Isco needs to “do some soul searching”.Valdano recognises Isco is on the outer of coach Santiago Solari’s plans.He said, “A year ago, Isco and Asensio were the great sources of hope at Real Madrid; [now] one has lost his way and the jury is out on the other.”Everyone knows something’s up, but nobody knows what; it has to be resolved in private. Today, [B-team striker] Cristo played ahead of Isco, [so] the issue has clearly developed into a very serious one. I imagine it’s something they’re discussing within the club.

The transformation that would incorporate new facilities and services had previously been estimated at USD 30 million but eventually rose to USD 56 million. The company confirmed that the cost increase was in part due to the installation of exhaust gas cleaning systems.The newest Dream Cruises ship is close to completing the overhaul ahead of the spring/summer 2019 season.Formerly known as the SuperStar Virgo of sister brand Star Cruises, the 1,870-passenger ship is expected to be launched later this month, Genting Cruise Lines confirmed.Genting Cruise Lines has also revealed a new hull artwork for the ship, created by New York-based, Chinese artist, Kuri Huang.“Huang’s artistic style aptly embodies Dream Cruises’ brand essence with its imaginative depiction of mythic creatures on a quest to explore new horizons across the seas,” said Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises.The 75,338- gross-ton Explorer Dream will strengthen the Dream Cruises’ brand in North China with homeports in Shanghai and Tianjin during spring/summer 2019 with a selection of voyages of various durations from Shanghai or Tianjin to Japan.

Chennai: It will be a battle of leadership styles of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ravichandran Ashwin when Chennai Super Kings clash with Kings XI Punjab an IPL match here on Saturday. Dhoni’s ability to stay calm and keep his cool even in the trickiest of situations versus Ashwin’s aggressive approach and out-of-the-box decisions would certainly make for an interesting contest. The two teams have three wins each and both will try to outdo each other to take the upper hand. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhDefending champions CSK suffered their first defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians in their last match after three straight wins, and they would hoping to get back to winning ways as they return to their ‘den’. The two previous matches at MA Chidambaram Stadium have produced contrasting performances. While Royal Challengers Bangalore were shot out for 70, Rajasthan Royals made CSK sweat before going down by eight runs on a better surface for the batters. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterThe spin-heavy CSK will now be up against KXIP, which also have quality spinners in their line-up with Ashwin himself at the forefront apart from Mujeeb Ur Rahman, leggie M Ashwin and mystery bowler C V Varun. The home team’s bowlers will be wary of Chris Gayle’s power-hitting provided he plays after missing the game against Delhi Capitals on April 1. With Gayle sitting out in their last match, KXIP showed it is not about the hard-hitting West Indian alone as KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal put their hands up. And Punjab would hope that they continue to shine. CSK has relied on team effort to win their matches as different players have delivered the goods in the IPL so far. The only worry would be the form of opener Ambati Rayudu, who has struggled to get going after last year’s success, perhaps creating a chance for Murali Vijay at the top. There is uncertainty over the availability of star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo for tomorrow’s game after he suffered a hamstring injury against Mumbai. His absence could open up a spot for the New Zealand pacer Scott Kuggeleijn. Dhoni will expect his bowlers to step up after the Mumbai batsmen went on the rampage during Wednesday’s match. In fact, CSK may opt for an extra spinner in place of either Mohit Sharma or Shardul Thakur. KXIP skipper Ashwin, who was part of CSK before the franchise let him go, would be looking to put his best foot forward against his former team.
Courtesy of MCTMajor League Baseball’s All Star Game featured both up-and-coming players making their first appearance in addition to veterans who have been there many times before. This year’s Mid-Summer Classic saw a pair of Cleveland Indians who had never been invited to the game before and a trio of Cincinnati Reds that have been the part of festivities multiple times. The American League defeated the National League 3-0 Tuesday night, to earn home-field advantage in the World Series.Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has made an incredible turnaround after a tough start to the season. At the end of April, there was probably not a single Tribe fan who believed he would get invited to the All Star Game. With a batting average hovering around .200 at the beginning of May, it was difficult not to think 2013 may be a long season for Kipnis.However, the second baseman solidified his spot on the American League All Star roster with a terrific month of June, hitting a scorching .419 and posting an on-base percentage of .517, both of which led the AL. Kipnis leads the Indians in hits, RBI, batting average and on-base percentage at the break, and if the they have any chance of making the playoffs they are going to need more of the same from him.Aside from Kipnis, Justin Masterson is Cleveland’s other All Star. Also making his first appearance in the game, Masterson has been the one pitcher for Cleveland that the team has received consistency from during the first half.For the Reds, first baseman Joey Votto seemingly has cemented himself as a member of the All Star Game since winning NL MVP in 2010. He leads the National League with a .434 on-base percentage and is seventh in the league with a .318 batting average. The Reds star leads the league in on-base percentage because his plate discipline is something like we have never seen before, and he refuses to swing at pitches out of the zone.Three-time Gold Glove winner Brandon Phillips typically earns a trip to the All Star game due to his defensive abilities, but his bat is also a good reason he played in New York Tuesday. Phillips’ 74 RBI is second in the NL, and that kind of production from a second baseman can be attributed to him consistently hitting fourth in the lineup, a spot that is designated for driving in runs. Reds manager Dusty Baker has put Phillips in the leadoff or second spot in the lineup in years past, but leaving him to bat after Votto is where he really thrives.Aroldis Chapman made his second appearance at the Mid-Summer Classic Tuesday night. Known as the “Cuban Missile” across baseball for his fastball that tops out over 100 miles per hour, the Reds’ closer is on pace to finish the season with over 40 saves. If it were not for the bullpen in front of him blowing leads prior to the ninth inning, Chapman would easily have another five saves to his name.Kipnis doubled in a run in his only plate appearance Tuesday night, and Masterson was not sent to the hill by manager Jim Leyland. Votto and Phillips both went 0-2, and Chapman was able to show off his skills in the seventh inning as he struck out Adam Jones to end the inning.Regardless of each players production Tuesday night, it’s clear that both Cleveland and Cincinnati need their All Stars to keep playing like All Stars as they push toward the playoffs.
Redshirt-sophmore safety Tyvis Powell (23) makes a tackle during a game against Penn State on Oct. 25 in State College, Pa. OSU won in double overtime, 31-24.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorTyvis Powell is living a dream.The redshirt-sophomore safety and Bedford, Ohio, native, who came to OSU in 2012 as a top-100 defensive back according to ESPNU, committed to the Buckeyes when Luke Fickell was the interim coach in 2011, amidst the Tattoo-Gate scandal.Powell said Monday that it didn’t matter who the coach was, he was set on being a Buckeye from day one.“This is a dream. You’re not going to give up your dreams. No matter who is the coach, you grow up your whole life and you watch one certain team, and you root for this team all your life, that’s where you want to go,” Powell said. “Your heart is always going to be with that team. The only place I felt like I would give 100 percent effort all the time would be here.”Once in Columbus, however, Powell said he had thoughts about leaving OSU after being redshirted in 2012.“My redshirt year I struggled a lot,” he said. “Adjusting to college and everything, watching everybody else, all my teammates that came in with me were actually playing and me being a redshirt, it was kind of frustrating. I had some doubts about even being here in the first place, I can honestly admit that.”Powell said a talk with his high school coach Sean Williams helped him to realize OSU was the right place for him.“I had a serious conversation with my mentor, my high school head coach, about what I was going through,” Powell said. “He just kind of reminded me why I came here in the first place, and it kind of triggered some stuff off in my head. I just realized that if you really want something, you got to work for it. They are not just going to give it to you.”Just a year later, Powell was appearing in games for the Buckeyes, starting five as a redshirt-freshman and totaling 48 tackles.Powell said he stepped up his work ethic to earn playing time because he did not want to be just another footnote in OSU football history.“People get here and they say, ‘Oh I arrived, I am just happy with being here.’ I kind of fell (in) with that a little bit, but then, like, I wanted more,” Powell said. “I wanted to be known, I wanted to make plays.”His biggest play as a redshirt-freshman came against Michigan when he stepped in front of a pass from then-redshirt-junior quarterback Devin Gardner on a two-point conversion that sealed a 42-41 OSU victory.The play is considered by some to be one of the biggest plays in recent OSU history, but Powell said he was only thinking about one thing when he made the catch.“I just thought it was something that would help get my seniors get their last pair of gold pants,” Powell said.The gold pants being an accolade Buckeyes receive following a win over Michigan, in the form of a small charm that usually bears the players initials and score of the game.Now a redshirt-sophomore and a full-time starter, Powell has made his presence felt again this season as he is currently second on the team in tackles with 40 and is tied with three other players for first on the team for interceptions with two.The second interception proved to be one of the biggest plays of Saturday’s game against Penn State as Powell dove in front of a pass from sophomore Christian Hackenberg in the second half of a 31-24, double-overtime win.Cornerbacks coach and special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs said he was particularly impressed with the play Powell made.“I thought that interception Saturday night was spectacular,” Coombs said. “Coming across the field, running in front of the receiver, laying out and making that play. That’s just typical of what Tyvis is doing right now.”Heading into Saturday’s game against Illinois at Ohio Stadium, Coombs added that the improvement of Powell from last season to this season has been exceptional.“I noticed, I think we all have, in Tyvis tremendous leaps and strides in this season,” Coombs said Monday. “Knowing that he is coming in, he is going to be a starter. There’s a difference when you are fighting to get a job and when you have a job. And he has got a job and so he can take another step, I think, in his development.”Powell said his development has resulted in a practice drill being named after him by the coaches.“We got a drill on Tuesday that he (co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ash) calls the ‘Tyvis Powell drill’ where we (just) tackle,” Powell said. “He calls it that, because at first I dreaded it, but now I love it. I embrace it. You got to embrace the things that suck.”Now, being one of OSU’s leaders and having a drill named after him, he still credits Williams for helping him achieve his dream.“At first I thought it wasn’t going to be a reality, but then me and my high school head coach came up with this plan,” Powell said. “I told him I wanted to come here, he said ‘Tyvis, you have the talent to get there and I can show you the way.’ He showed me some things, he created the work ethic inside of me that I didn’t know that I had and that ultimately helped me get here.”Powell said being in Columbus was the only choice entering college, adding he would have walked on as a Buckeye before accepting a scholarship elsewhere.“(It was) OSU or nothing,” Powell said.

Caperton’s promotion “makes a lot of sense because she was handling a lot of the editor-in-chief responsibilities” since Toepfer’s departure, said the source.OK!’s ad pages increased 23 percent in 2008, according to Publishers Information Bureau figures. Ad sales in January were up 30 percent over the same month last year, the publisher said last month. Following the high profile departure of former Alpha Media executive Kent Brownridge as general manager, and the subsequent ouster of Susan Toepfer as its editor-in-chief, OK! magazine has promoted executive editor Katie Caperton to the top editor post, a knowledgeable source told FOLIO:.An OK! spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment.Caperton, who joined the celebrity title in 2005 as editorial manager, will report to Sarah Ivens, who stepped down as editor-in-chief in October. Ivens, who moved to Kentucky but had been serving as interim editor-in-chief since Toepfer left last month, will remain with the magazine as editorial director, according to the source.
With use of social media reaching near ubiquity among the U.S. population, its importance to publishers cannot be overstated. Twitter, specifically, has emerged as one of the most important platforms in the space, which has resulted in magazine publishers scrambling to up their number of followers.According to MagazineRadar, which tracks 5,000 titles on a daily basis, Time Inc. dominates in number of followers among magazine brands on the site, with five titles in the top 10, four of which are in the top five. As of yesterday, People leads the way with more than 3.5 million followers; Time is close behind, with 3.2 million followers, while InStyle, in the third spot, trails by 1 million, with an audience of 2.1 million. Fairchild Publications’ Women’s Wear Daily breaks up Time Inc.’s top five dominance, taking the fourth tier position with its almost 1.99 million followers. Entertainment Weekly trails behind just slightly, with 1.97 million. (Entertainment Weekly broke 2 million later in the day.)Even with so many followers, People is still seeing growth, with the number increasing 4.19 percent in just the last 30 days. Of the top ten, National Geographic saw the most growth in the last month, with an 11.48 percent increase to 1.48 million. The Economist saw the second-largest amount of growth, with an 8.64 percent increase to 1.68 million.Engaging FollowersBut while a high number of followers is certainly an advantage, it’s how publishers are engaging with them that, perhaps, matters most.“You’ve only got a few seconds of someone’s attention (at best) on Twitter,” Time’s social media producer Allie Townsend told FOLIO: last year, “so what you’re writing needs to earn their click. Don’t be afraid to be urgent, funny, maybe even a little sarcastic if the story calls for it.”“With magazines in particular, there’s a temptation to send out headlines and get people to click on them,” Solar Industry editor Jessica Lillian said at the time. Her magazine, which serves solar industry professionals, has 15,979 followers. “You have to surround that with conversation; engage, reply and talk to followers.”Measuring Social Media ReachWhile Time Inc. magazines have clearly emerged as leaders on Twitter, it can be difficult to quantify a magazine’s total reach on the site because many brands have more than one handle, each of which may have an overlapping audience: While @glamourmag, for example, currently has 166,208 followers, its @glamour_fashion handle has 255,255.Also, a magazine may be strong on one platform but not so much on another. Playboy, for example, has only 420,330 followers on Twitter, says MagazineRadar, while it leads in Facebook “likes” with more than 5.5 million. People, on the other hand, has just over 1.5 million Facebook “likes.”Meanwhile, other important platforms continue to emerge. Time Inc. has put a significant amount of attention into Pinterest, which is the second biggest social media referral site for its Health. Meredith’s Better Homes and Gardens has also been a leader on the online pinboard site, with almost 60 different boards aligned with the brand’s various editorial categories.Source: Magazine Radar
