The court is trying a group of men accused of the murder and is due to hold its next hearing on 20 April. “The court must examine the links that may have existed between certain Ergenekon members and Dink’s murderers,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If the court takes account of this evidence, the trial could enter a new phase that could lead to an impartial verdict in the weeks ahead.”The Dink family was told about the possible links by a friend of Dink’s, Ali Bayramoglu, a reporter with Yeni Safak, a daily newspaper that supports Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP). Bayramoglu first began suspecting Ergenekon’s involvement a few days after Dink’s murder.Ögün Samast, the youth who allegedly fired the shots that killed Dink, Yasin Hayal, the accused mastermind, and Erbil Susaman, another of the defendants, were all allegedly in physical and telephone contract with the Ergenekon network. They are believed to have been in contact with Mustafa Öztürk, who at the time was the head of the far-right group Foyer Alperen, and with Veli Küçük, one of those who have been charged and detained for alleged participation in the Ergenekon conspiracy.The Dink family’s lawyers have given this information to the Istanbul court handling the Dink murder trial and to the Istanbul court handling the Ergenekon case.The editor of the newspaper Agos, Dink was gunned down outside the newspaper’s headquarters in Istanbul on 19 January 2007. The trial of his alleged killers began in July 2007.An alleged clandestine network with links to the military and security forces and inspired by the secular convictions of the Turkish republic’s founder, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Ergenekon is accused of plotting against the AKP government. The trial of 86 alleged participants – 41 of whom are being held in Silivri prison, west of Istanbul – began last October.Turkey was ranked 103rd out of 173 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

highlights New Delhi: In the recently concluded five-match ODI series against England, Pakistan lost 4-0 has eventually resulted in three major changes to their bowling arsenal for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Inzamam-ul-Haq, the chief selector, announced the final 15-man squad for the mega event as Pakistan made three changes to the preliminary side. Amir’s inclusion though looked inevitable after the way the bowlers were taken away for plenty of runs by the English batters on flat pitches.The 27-year-old wasn’t the part of the provisional squad announced last month. However, Amir was given a last chance to prove his mettle in the England series and picked in the extended squad for the tour. Unfortunately, the pacer fell ill ahead of the second ODI after the first game was washed out and never recovered. He was down with the suspected chicken pox and many felt that his dream to play the World Cup will vanish again. Mohammad Amir will play his first 50-over World Cup. Wahab Riaz will play his third 50-over World Cup. Pakistan will play it’s first game against West Indies on May 31. Elated with the inclusion in the World Cup squad, Mohammad Amir took to his official Twitter handle to express his happiness and felt proud to be part of the team. “Allhamdulilah, humbled and proud to be part of the Pakistan WC squad InshAllah going to give 100% and we all will try and make our nation proud, thank u all for ur support and endless duas we all need them more now. #pakistanZindabad,” his tweet read.Moreover, Mohammad Amir has also fully recovered from his illness now and is expected to join the squad on May 22 in Bristol.

A solid start in the league and in Europe while playing some attractive football – it’s been a successful few months for Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.While much of the focus has been on Manchester City’s seemingly inevitable battle with Liverpool for the title, the Italian has settled into life extremely well in West London since being appointed in the summer, guiding his side through the opening four months without incident, aside from their recent defeat to Spurs, putting the club into a great position heading into the new year. While the Blues have had a relatively kind few months in terms of fixtures, not many expected Chelsea to be in this position as we neared the busy festive period.via GIPHYChelsea’s start to the season has made the January transfer window even more important than it would have been if they were off the pace. With Manchester City and Liverpool both expected to have somewhat quiet Januarys, the question is whether Chelsea can strengthen enough to not only keep pace with the league leaders, but potentially even overtake them as the season enters the final few weeks. It’s fair to say the bookies don’t think Chelsea can do it, priced around 17/1 to win the title, but those looking to use the free bet offers available at Oddchecker to back the Londoners to finish in the top two this season could do a lot worse.The title might be a bit beyond them this year, but you never know in the Premier League, and Sarri’s men may well prove a lot of people wrong and push City and Liverpool all the way. But, if Chelsea are going to upset the odds, you’d think they need to add a couple of fresh faces to the squad in January. So let’s take a look at those players Sarri could be targeting in the new year.Alex Sandro (Juventus)Ever since making the move to Juventus from Porto in 2015, the Brazilian has established himself as one of the world’s best left backs. The defender was a crucial part of the Juventus team who won a domestic double in 2016/17 and reached the Champions League Final. It was then that Sandro caught the eye of the Chelsea scouts, with Antonio Conte willing to spend £62 million on the defender, only for the departures of Dani Alves and Leonardo Bonucci to put paid to any chance the Premier League side had of signing their man.A lot has changed since then, though, and while Juventus would rather keep Sandro in Turin, the Brazilian’s desire to move to England may well be a factor in the Serie A champions deciding to sell him. Sarri’s desire to add some cover and competition for Marcos Alonso on the left side of defence saw Emerson Palmieri arrive from Roma in the summer, but Sandro would likely be the first choice option despite the presence of two international left backs in the squad.Houssem Aouar (Lyon)Another player of Sarri’s radar is Lyon’s young playmaker Houssem Aouar. The France under-21 international has been in electric form for the Ligue 1 side this season, scoring five goals and recording three assists in the Champions League. The attacking midfielder is only in his second full season since breaking through at his boyhood club, but it hasn’t taken long for Aouar to catch the eye of some of European football’s biggest clubs. While Lyon has insisted they aren’t looking to sell the Frenchman, that could change if they receive a huge bid in January.As well as Chelsea, Barcelona are long-time admirers of Aouar, although it’s unlikely the 20-year old would be thrown into the first team straight away at the Nou Camp. While it remains to be seen whether Sarri feels Aouar is someone he could use this season, the exciting youngster is clearly on the Italian’s list of potential signings. Arsenal are another Premier League club who have been credited with an interest in Aouar, who are looking for an energetic midfielder to replace the outgoing Aaron Ramsey. Liverpool actually offered the Frenchman a contract before he signed his first professional deal with Lyon and have continued to monitor Aouar since then.

23 November 2011 If you want to find out what the South African government, business and NGOs are doing about climate change – visit the upcoming South Africa Climate Change Response Expo alongside Durban’s International Convention Centre. An initiative of the Department of Environmental Affairs, the expo runs concurrently with the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change – from 28 November to 9 December – and is free of charge and open to the public. The expo will showcase “green” initiatives undertaken by the government, corporates, NGOs and small business, educating visitors on how climate change affects us all, and on various steps taken to ensure that people start living a “greener” life.Local suppliers, indigenous plants Environmental Affairs deputy director-general Blessing Manale said that, in line with the greening principle, the expo organisers would be using as many local KwaZulu-Natal suppliers as possible. “We want to indicate to people of our country that South Africa has resources that can form part of green living,” Manale said. “It is only when capacity is limited that we are sourcing suppliers from elsewhere in South Africa. For example, only plants indigenous to KZN have been chosen to beautify the SACCR Expo.” Bottled water has been banned from the exhibition space. Water coolers will be supplied throughout the venue, with clean drinking water – filled from the taps. Plastic cups will be supplied, and these and the coolers will be branded with water conservation messaging. “People may question the use of plastic cups, but these have been chosen as they can then be recycled through our onsite waste management system,” Manale said. “We did consider having biodegradable cups, but there was a concern that these may be confused with plastic and added to the recycling – which, being non-recyclable, would cause problems in this waste stream.”Shuttle service The different sections of the exhibition space have been named after trees, and each tree will be showcased by its own marquee. Small ecosystem displays will also be set up, accompanied by information to on their role and value in environmental systems. Avoiding private vehicle usage as much as possible, on arrival from the airport, a shuttle service will be made available to transport all COP 17 participants to their accommodation or the central transport hub, which is 10 minutes away from the expo venue. “The emissions associated with transportation typically compromise the largest wedge of an event’s carbon footprint, and this has spurred an impressive range of interventions to reduce the need for emissions – intensive private transportation,” Manale said. The expo is situated at Centrum Car Park, Bram Fischer Road, within 300 metres of the International Convention Centre, directly between the COP 17 transport hub and the formal COP 17 negotiating space in the Convention Centre. It will be open from 10am to 6pm Sundays through Thursdays, and from 10am to 8pm on the Fridays and Saturdays of COP 17. Source: BuaNews
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Spraying our crops is an important process to ensure a healthy, successful season. However, Mother Nature can make it difficult to find the right spray conditions. Drift damage to neighboring crops, animals and landscapes can not only be expensive, but also damage neighbor relationships and give agriculture a bad name. Drift is also an economic loss as the product is not reaching the target pest at the intended rate. This could result in treatment failure in some cases.Drift can result from a number of factors with wind speed and direction being the number one cause for spray drift. Spray equipment can also cause drift. Droplet size coming from the spray nozzle is a combination of the type of nozzle and spray pressure.Smaller droplet sizes are effective in reaching smaller targets such as insects and complete foliage coverage; however, they are also more prone to drift. Droplet size is measured in micrometers (1/25,000 of an inch) usually referred to as microns. The droplet sizes most prone to drift are those less than 150 micron in diameter. Droplets of 200 micron and larger are far less likely to drift so this size is the most desired size whenever possible (Ozkan). There are several low-drift nozzles available on the market today. The OSU Extension Fact Sheet cited below provides an overview of some of them.Another important step in reducing drift damage is to know what neighboring farms are producing. The new Ohio Sensitive Crop Registry allows growers of sensitive crops, organic, aquaculture or bees to list their location on the registry. Spray operators can then log into the site and see what is in the area where they will be spraying. Users need to create an account but contact information is voluntary and no information will be available to the general public. For registered apiaries, pesticide applicators are required by law to contact apiaries within one half mile of a field larger than half an acre and in bloom when using a pesticide that contains a bee advisory on the label. Remember that farmers using restricted-use pesticides are required to keep records about their applications. I would also recommend for farmers to keep records for general-use pesticide applications so if anyone has questions about what is sprayed, the farmer has the documentation regarding the sprays used. The registry is available at: http://www.agri.ohio.gov/scr/.Reference:Ozkan, Erdal. New Nozzles for Spray Drift Reduction. Retrieved from http://ohioline.osu.edu/aex-fact/0523.html.

Summer is gone now, so all the amazing pop colours that you might have invested in for your makeup arsenal is going to go on a well deserved sabbatical. While in the grey monsoons, it is quite a craving to colour up the day with something bright – but as fashion experts would tell you – the colour should be in your clothes and accessories this season, not in the makeup. This season, go natural. The nude makeup look is polished and pretty and because you’re simply boosting your skin tone, it’ll never appear as if you tried too hard. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Nude should not mean the same thing to all people. Picking flashy colors that complement your complexion will prevent you from looking washed-out. That means honey and taupe for fair skin; tawny and caramel for medium; chocolate, gold and terra-cotta for dark, says makeup expert Nidhi Khurana.For nude makeup we should always start with primer and most importantly use mascara first and last. Depending up on your skin tone, use peach undertone; for fair skin. For medium complexions, pinks and caramels for darker skin tones. Choose a foundation that is slightly lighter than your skin tone and apply to the rounded parts of your face: cheeks, bridge of the nose, chin and forehead. Use powder blushes, highlighters and a soft brush to contour around the hairline, and the outer perimeter of the face.For ideal nude eye apply matted eyes colours like pink, peach and caramel. It gives eyes very nude yet classy look. For lips to look natural you can choose a gloss or a matted lip stick.
Kolkata: Calcutta High Court on Thursday directed all processes of the West Bengal rural polls to be suspended till April 16, when the State Election Commission (SEC) will submit a report on the measures it has taken to ensure peaceful filing of nominations by the Opposition.Justice Subrata Talukdar also imposed a fine of Rs 5 lakh on the BJP for misrepresentation, likening the party’s conduct to “forum hopping” after the saffron brigade approached both the high court and the Supreme Court on similar pleas. The state government has decided to move the division Bench of the high court on Friday challenging the single Bench’s verdict. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe high court has ordered the SEC to submit on April 16 a comprehensive status report on the poll process, detailing the number of nominations filed and the percentage of nominations rejected, amongst other information.Trinamool counsel and party MP, Kalyan Banerjee, argued both inside the court and outside that according to Article 243-O of the Constitution, courts do not have right to interfere in electoral matters after the election process has begun. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed”We are approaching a Division Bench against this order,” said Banerjee.The BJP had already moved a caveat before the Division Bench of Justice Biswanath Somadder and Arindam Mukherjee where the TMC is supposed to move their petition challenging the single Bench order.It is learnt that Justice Talukdar will take a decision on resuming the poll process after getting the SEC’s report.Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee said the Opposition has nothing to rejoice as the people of Bengal are with the TMC and its development agenda. “We have full faith in the judiciary. They are trying to delay the election process as they have no organisational strength. Elections will be held today or tomorrow and then it will be proved clearly that the people of the state have full faith in our development agenda. The changes that we have brought about will reflect in the vote box,” Chatterjee said. It may be mentioned that Justice Talukdar’s order came in the wake of a petition moved by the Bengal unit of the BJP, alleging that the ruling Trinamool Congress has resorted to violence to prevent their candidates from filing nominations for the forthcoming Panchayat polls.The Congress welcomed the high court orders. “I salute the high court. At least they are listening to our agony when the government, police and even the State Election Commission are turning a deaf ear to our pleas,” said state Congress president Adhir Chowdhury.”We welcome the decision of the Calcutta High Court,” said MoS heavy industry and Lok Sabha MP Babul Supriyo.Left Front chairman Biman Bose said the verdict of the single Bench has proved that the allegations that we have made are genuine.Elections are scheduled to be held in three phases from May 1, 3 and 5 with the counting happening on May 8. The filing of nominations for the Panchayat polls began on April 2 and ended on April 9. Scrutiny of nominations took place on April 11. The withdrawal of nomination had started on Thursday and with the high court’s order, the process has been stalled.
