Nothing wrong with shastra puja on Rafale jet: Sitharaman

first_imgStating that worship on Vijayadashami was an integral part of Indian culture, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday hit out at those who criticised Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s shashtra puja (worship of weapons) while receiving the first Rafale jet, and said there was nothing superstitious about it. “It was something that was done on Vijayadashami. He marked it [the Rafale jet] with the ‘Om’ symbol. So what is wrong? Everyone worships in some form or the other in this country based on whichever faith they belong to,” she said.Ms. Sitharaman was speaking to reporters in Pune as part of BJP’s election campaign. The Union Finance Minister said that following the criticism over the puja, many social media users had come up with videos showing how an earlier Defence Minister while taking charge of a naval ship, had marked it with a symbol of his religion.She was referring to A.K. Antony’s drawing a ‘cross’ on INS Vikrant during its launch ceremony. “At that time, how many of us were concerned with superstition or blind faith… Similar things [pujas] have happened during earlier regimes in India and also take place across the world,” Ms. Sitharaman said, adding, “Those who have faith, perform worship and that a puja is accorded importance in Indian culture.”“I, too, keep my books and my veena on Saraswati puja,” she added. Auto sectorIn response to questions on the slowdown in the automobile sector, the Finance Minister said she had been regularly interacting with representatives from the automobile sector all over the country and was ready to hold talks with members of other industries as well to accommodate their demands“They [auto sector representatives] have already met me twice in Delhi… While it is true that consumer demand has not revived yet for the automobile sector, they can always talk to me if they want anything particular,” she said.While acknowledging that more steps needed to be taken to revive consumer demand, Ms. Sitharaman said that the Central government was responsive and that changes would be effected as needed.While the Finance Minister praised Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ government in the State, she conceded that more efforts needed to be made to resolve the issue of water scarcity.“Mr. Fadnavis has comprehensively addressed the issue of water shortage in Maharashtra,” Ms. Sitharaman said, adding at the same time that the issue of water shortage needed more time and effort.When asked as to how the matter of the withdrawal of Article 370 from Kashmir was relevant in a State election, she replied that it the abrogation of Article 370 was matter of pride for every Indian and claimed that “not a single bullet had been fired in Kashmir” since then.last_img read more

Deep learning hits a sweet note

As you may recall, a couple of weeks ago I had my mind boggled at the Embedded Vision Summit (see Day 1 and Day 2). That summit left me thinking of DNNs and deep learning primarily in the context of embedded vision applications until……my chum Jay Dowling sent me the links to two very interesting videos on YouTube. First we have this video of a guy singing the same song in a variety of different locations.One thing that’s of interest here is how various aspects of the sound — character, quality, tone, reverberation, highness, lowness, etc. — change depending on the surrounding environment. But the thing that’s truly amazing about all this is how, if we were to see any of these clips in isolation, we wouldn’t think anything of the timbre of the sounds we were hearing (except for things like “I wish I could sing like that” ).The point is that we are used to things sounding one way in the outside world, for example, and the same things sounding very different in a large, empty room and different again in a smaller room jam-packed with furnishings. Of course, the other side to this coin is that we would very quickly twig to the fact that something was “off” if we saw a video of someone appearing to sing outside while being presented with the audio recording from the large empty room.All of the above leads us to this video, in which we see the results of a novel deep learning experiment. Researchers from MIT recorded ~1,000 videos capturing ~46,000 instances of different objects and materials being prodded, scraped, and hit with a drumstick. They then used a deep learning algorithm to analyze the videos and deconstruct the resulting sounds according to a variety of acoustical qualities.Once the algorithm has been trained, the next step is to present the system with silent videos of someone prodding, scraping, and hitting things with the drumstick. The system is charged with generating accompanying sounds that are appropriate to the situation. Amazingly enough, even though this is very early in the game, in many cases the system can generate sounds sufficiently convincing to fool human observers.Of course, you may be thinking to yourself “Why would anyone actually want to do this?” Well, several reasons spring to mind. Think of all the sound effects used in films and on television programs, for example; at some time in the future, it may be that these could be added automatically.We’re all used to the idea that images can be digitally manipulated using programs like Adobe’s Photoshop — hence the use of the term “Photoshopped” to refer to an image that has been altered or enhanced.(Source: A more nefarious application for this auditory generation system might be creating incriminating videos with associated audio-realistic sound effects.One very interesting potential application involves helping robots navigate their way around the world. In the case of humans, our kids use a variety of techniques to create (train) their worldview, including sticking everything they can lay their hands on inside their mouths to see what things taste like and poking, prodding, banging, and stroking objects to discover what they feel like and how they respond both physically and audibly (I still use both of these methods myself).Later in life, as we stroll around, our brains are subconsciously observing the surrounding terrain and predicting what it will feel like to our feet and sound like to our ears. We expect different sensations from different materials like grass, gravel, and carpet. Consider what would happen if we were to be strolling along thinking about what to have for supper and we were to step from a grassy lawn onto a gravel path, for example. Suppose that, instead of hearing the expected “crunch” of gravel, we were actually presented with a “splosh” sound. In this case, we would immediately come to a grinding halt and focus our attention on the “here and now” trying to determine what was happening.Similarly, a robot could look at the various materials in its path ahead and predict qualities such as their relative hardness and “give” and adjust its gait accordingly. When the robot did transition from walking on one material to another, various sensors would provide feedback as to the validity of its assumptions and allow it to adjust its motion to accommodate differences between the “expected” and the “actual.” Adding auditory prediction and feedback to the mix will provide an extra level of sophistication to this process.What say you? Can you think of other applications for deep-learning in general and this auditory deep-learning in particular?

Hockey legend Balbir Singh Sr. remains critical

first_img(Eds: Fresh updates on Singh’s condition) Chandigarh, Oct 4 (PTI) Three-time Olympic gold medal winning hockey legend Balbir Singh Senior continued to remain critical after being admitted to a hospital here due to difficulty in breathing. The legendary centre-forward, who is 94, is being treated at the Respiratory Intensive Care Unit (RICU) of Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research here and his condition was described as “critical” by the doctors attending to him. A senior doctor told PTI on Thursday evening that Singh has been kept on ventilator and under constant observation. “He has been kept on ventilator and we are monitoring him regularly,” he said. Singh has been having acute bronchitis and fluctuations in blood pressure, according to the doctor. Earlier, another doctor had said that an endotracheal tube has been inserted into his trachea. “The purpose of endotracheal intubation is to permit air to pass freely to and fro from the lungs,” the doctor said. Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore wished the legendary player’s speedy recovery. “Wishing the pride of our nation, our hockey legend Shri Balbir Singh Sr. a speedy recovery and good health. Get well soon, sir,” Rathore tweeted. In Punjab and Haryana, famous for producing great hockey players, fans prayed for Singh’s speedy recovery. “Balbir Sr. sir is our nation’s pride. He has given so much to the sport and above all he is a true patriot. I wish and pray that he gets well soon,” said Gurbaj Singh, an ardent fan from Jalandhar. “Ever since I heard the news about his poor health in the morning, I have been praying to God to make him better soon,” said Bimla Kumari, a fan from Shahbad in Haryana.advertisement Singh, a former captain, currently lives in Chandigarh with his daughter Sushbir Kaur and maternal grandson Kabir. The legendary player fell ill at his home a few days back. As complications grew, he was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday and his condition deteriorated since Wednesday. One of the country’s tallest athletes, Singh became the only Indian among 16 legends chosen by the International Olympic Committee across the modern Olympic history. His world record for most goals scored by an individual in the men’s hockey final of the Olympics still remains unbeaten. He had scored five goals in India’s 6-1 victory over the Netherlands in the gold medal match of the 1952 Helsinki Games. He was conferred with the Padma Shri in 1957 and was also the manager of India’s World Cup-winning team in 1975. Less than two months ago, Singh attended a function at Chandigarh Press Club on the occasion of 70 years of India’s first Olympic hockey victory in London in 1948. He went down the memory lane and said he was overwhelmed by a sense of patriotism after that triumph. “The event happened 70 years ago, but it feels like only yesterday. I still remember the feeling when the Indian flag was hoisted at the 1948 Olympics when we beat Britain 4-0,” Singh had said on that occasion. Singh was a member of three Olympic gold medal winning teams in London (1948), Helsinki (1952), and Melbourne (1956 as captain). PTI SUN VSD PDSPDSlast_img read more

Highways Moving in Right Direction Survey Says

first_imgImprovements to provincial highways are leading to more satisfied motorists, according to a customer-satisfaction survey by the Department of Transportation and Public Works. Satisfaction with the provincial highway system stood at 61 per cent in 2006, an increase of 11 per cent since the department first began surveying in 2001. The satisfaction level is based on survey responses of “very satisfied” or “somewhat satisfied” as opposed to “somewhat dissatisfied” or “very dissatisfied.” “It’s reassuring that the public sees us as heading in the right direction,” said Transportation and Public Works Minister Angus MacIsaac. “These surveys are a useful tool in helping our department spotlight the areas where we need improvement.” For the first time the survey asked about satisfaction with winter road-condition information available from the department. Half of the respondents said they had contacted the department for information and 94 per cent said they were “somewhat satisfied” or “very satisfied” with what they received. “We’ve put a lot of time and effort into upgrading our road-condition-reporting methods and I’m happy that our improvements have found such favour with the public,” said Mr. MacIsaac. “We’re continuing to explore other methods that will help keep the motoring public informed.” In total, respondents were asked to rate 17 different aspects of provincial highways, from the number of four-lane highways to the timeliness of a cleanup after a storm. The survey indicated that filling cracks and potholes, snow removal during and after storms, and improved pavement markings were the most important jobs performed by the department. The 2006 customer-satisfaction survey was conducted by the Marketing Research Centre and is based on telephone interviews with 2,072 residents of Nova Scotia, 16 years of age and older. A random sample of this size provides a sampling error of plus or minus 2.15 per cent with a 95 per cent confidence level. The survey is available on the department’s website at .last_img read more

Baloney Meter Has there been a significant reduction in irregular migration

first_imgOTTAWA – “The member opposite’s assertion that the numbers (of irregular migrants) are going up is simply wrong. We have seen a significant reduction of those numbers just over the past few weeks. In the past several months, we have seen as much as a 70-per-cent reduction over what we experienced last year. ” — Border Security Minister Bill Blair.—This was the response Border Security Minister Bill Blair provided on Oct. 25 to a question in the House of Commons posed by Conservative public safety critic Pierre Paul-Hus, who asked about the ongoing influx of irregular migrants crossing into Canada away from official entry points.As part of his question, Paul-Hus said the “number of illegal border crossings continues to rise.”Blair rejected this as “simply wrong,” citing a “significant reduction” of 70 per cent in the last several months compared to last year.But is either statement true?Spoiler alert: The Canadian Press Baloney Meter is a dispassionate examination of political statements culminating in a ranking of accuracy on a scale of “no baloney” to “full of baloney” (complete methodology below).This one earns a rating of “some baloney.” Here’s why.THE FACTSCanada began experiencing an influx of “irregular” border crossers in early 2017, shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump announced he would end a program that offered temporary status to immigrants from several countries to live in the United States.Tens of thousands of asylum-seekers have since arrived in Canada from the U.S., avoiding official border checkpoints where they would have been turned away under the Safe Third Country agreement between the two countries. Instead, they’ve been crossing the border along forest paths and through fields, declaring their intent to seek refugee status once on Canadian soil.THE NUMBERSBlair says the significant drop in asylum seekers happened “in the past several months.” Asylum claim statistics released by the Immigration Department show there was a reduction in the months of July to September this year compared to the same three months in 2017. But it was a drop of 53 per cent, not 70 per cent.Blair’s press secretary Marie-Emmanuelle Cadieux clarified that Blair was comparing only the month of August 2018 with August of 2017 when citing the 70-per-cent reduction.In that month alone, there were indeed 70 per cent fewer irregular migrants compared with the year before.However, year-over-year numbers show that overall, more people have crossed irregularly into Canada so far this year — 15,726, compared to the 15,102 crossings from January to September 2017.THE EXPERTSMeasuring and predicting the number of irregular migrants who might come to Canada is hard, says Janet Dench of the Canadian Council for Refugees.She pointed to the fact that many predicted a major surge this summer, as was experienced in 2017, as the warmer summer months make travel easier. Others predicted an influx of Salvadoran asylum seekers after the Trump administration moved to end temporary protected status for over 250,000 Salvadorans living in the United States.“In the spring we heard people saying, ‘There’s going to be these huge numbers of people crossing over into Quebec,’ and it actually remained pretty steady,” Dench said.“It’s very difficult to predict, but I would say the numbers that are coming in Canada now is more reflective of the total number of refugees in the world.”Jamie Liew, an immigration lawyer and associate professor of law at the University of Ottawa, agreed it is hard to predict the number of irregular migrants who might cross the border. But once they do they show up, Canada has legal obligations to allow them to go through the process of claiming refugee status.“I think the number is only useful in terms of how the government plans to shift resources to address the applications that are coming in or to address issues that are happening at the border.”Both Dench and Liew said too much focus has been put on the numbers of irregular migrants, which is just one aspect of issues involving Canada’s refugee system. The politicians could be debating more important things, such as how we handle migrants’ cases.THE VERDICTDuring the month of August, there was a 70-per-cent decrease in the number of irregular migrants crossing the border compared to the same month last year. However, given that there has been an overall increase in the number of asylum claims from irregular migrants so far this year compared to last year, Blair’s statement that there has been a significant reduction contains “some baloney.”METHODOLOGYThe Baloney Meter is a project of The Canadian Press that examines the level of accuracy in statements made by politicians.Each claim is researched and assigned a rating based on the following scale:No baloney — the statement is completely accurateA little baloney — the statement is mostly accurate but more information is requiredSome baloney — the statement is partly accurate but important details are missingA lot of baloney — the statement is mostly inaccurate but contains elements of truthFull of baloney — the statement is completely inaccurateNote to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version contained two different baloney ratings.last_img read more

2004 record year for UN Population Fund in donors and donations

A record 166 countries contributed to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in 2004 for total contributions of $326 million, the highest ever in the 35-year history of the world’s largest international source of funding for population and reproductive health programmes.But the agency still needs more.“This remarkable level of support from governments demonstrates their commitment to reproductive health and rights, women’s empowerment and gender equality,” UNFPA Executive Director Thoraya Ahmed Obaid said.These investments “are absolutely essential to save lives and reduce poverty in line with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” she added in reference to the targets set by the UN Millennium Summit of 2000 to halve extreme poverty and hunger, slash infant and maternal mortality and greatly increase access to health and education, all by 2015.But she added: “I must put these figures into perspective, because the issues addressed by UNFPA, such as HIV/AIDS, have become far more serious than we could have ever imagined. In other words, I consider it imperative that our regular income continues to grow over the next few years to the $400 million level.”“This will enable UNFPA to maintain its relevance in promoting reproductive and sexual health worldwide and to prevent HIV, particularly with respect to the world’s largest generation of adolescents,” she said.The top six donors were the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Japan, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. The contributions of $326 million, a provisional figure, easily passed the previous high of $300 million in 1996.At the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, 179 governments and civil society organizations committed to a 20-year action plan to ensure universal access to reproductive health information and services, including family planning, and to uphold fundamental human rights, including reproductive rights.The number of UNFPA donors has been steadily increasing over the last few years, from 69 in 1999, to 149 in 2003, and now 166. In addition, more than 40 countries pledged multi-year funding in 2004, another record for UNFPA.UNFPA works with governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in more than 140 countries, supporting programmes that help people plan families and avoid unwanted pregnancies, undergo pregnancy and childbirth safely, avoid sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and combat violence against women. read more

Downing Street feared John Major may accidentally win the first National Lottery

Downing Street was worried John Major may inadvertently win the first National Lottery and drew up contingency plans to avoid embarrassment, newly declassified documents have revealed.Correspondence released by the National Archives showed unease building among Whitehall officials as ministers bought tickets to help promote the lottery launch in 1994.While the inaugural draw was considered a “major opportunity” for the Tories to build support, aides feared it would be “unhelpful” if senior MPs were “seen to be among the early winners”. Guidance was hastily drawn up by the Department of National Heritage, telling ministers that the Prime Minister was donating his lottery ticket to charity and they should follow suit. John Kingman, a private secretary in the National Heritage department, wrote in a note to Mr Major’s office: “The lottery will be a secure operation: no individual will be in a position to influence the outcome of the draw. There is therefore no propriety issue.“But it would still be awkward presentationally if a Minister were to win a major prize.”Such an outcome was almost comically remote, with the chances of winning even a three-figure sum in the first draw at 55,491 to one, according to operator Camelot. The odds of securing a prize in the tens of thousands of pounds – by matching five balls plus the bonus – was 2,330,636 to one.Nonetheless, the Prime Minister’s was asked to weigh in on whether ministers should be able to keep prize money “like any other citizen” or be forced to donate it to charity.Officials fretted about allowing ministers to decide individually if the rule applied to their families, with future cabinet minister Damian Green warning such an approach could unleash “a journalistic ring-round revealing different standards”. More than 22 million people tuned in to BBC to watch the fist draw of the Government-backed National Lottery on November 19 1994, when seven people claimed the jackpot of £839,254.  The National Lottery was seen as a 'major opportunity' for the Tories and ministers rushed to buy tickets It was viewed as a boost to the Government of Mr Major, which was struggling to contain surging Labour popularity due to what it described as the “Blair factor”. Downing Street officials had been planning the launch meticulously to ensure the Prime Minister reaped as much good will from the initiative as possible.During preparations, Christopher Meyer, Mr Major’s press secretary, said there was a willingness “to exploit the Prime Minister’s personal association” with the lottery by getting him to buy a ticket.However, proposals for him to take part in the first televised draw – presented by Noel Edmonds – were firmly rejected by press advisers. “It would look tacky and awkward,” Mr Meyer warned.  In the days that followed, Denis Vaughan, the conductor who lobbied for the National Lottery to be created, wrote to the Director-General of the BBC to complain about its broadcast. “There is no sign of any distinguished sight or sound on the programme so far,” he said in the letter to John Burt, which was part of the National Archives release.Mr Vaughan suggested “light classical music” should be used throughout the broadcast and expressed hope that Prince Charles could become the president of “one big charity” for the lottery. The National Lottery was seen as a ‘major opportunity’ for the Tories and ministers rushed to buy ticketsCredit:PA Similar concerns were voiced by Mr Green, then a Downing Street aide, who suggested “even presenting a cheque to an early winner feels more like a Private Eye cover than a positive photocall”. Another official, Alex Allan, warned they could be struck by a backlash of “bad news stories” that might require the Prime Minister to have an arms-length association to the lottery.Suggesting the type of headlines that could await, he wrote: “The single mother who spends the food money on lottery tickets, the bureaucracy that takes ages to pay out lottery proceeds to deserving causes.”The honour of starting the first draw eventually fell to 18-year-old Deborah Walsh.

DC Republicans Cheer Their Presidential Hopefuls During Debate

(AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)District of Columbia Republicans crowded one of the most popular bars in the Adams Morgan neighborhood to watch the first presidential debate of the 2016 campaign scene on Aug 6.Scores of young Republicans, with an occasional Baby Boomer, watched the 10 leading Republican presidential candidates’ debate on national television at the Johnny Pistolas Mexican Taquiera Bar. There were few Blacks at Johnny Pistolas, but those present were cheering on their favorite candidate.“I’m with [U.S. Senator] Marco Rubio all the way,” Gee-Gee Bean, a branch manager for a construction company, said of the Florida Republican. “Rubio has the right values to be president and I think that he will capture people’s hearts when they get to know him.”The candidates joining Rubio at the debate were businessman Donald Trump; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; governors Chris Christie, Scott Walker, and John Kasich of New Jersey, Wisconsin, and Ohio, respectively; Dr. Ben Carson; Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.); former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). When the candidates came on the stage and were announced by name, the crowded responded with cheers for Trump, Carson, Rubio, and Bush.Republican presidential candidates from left, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson take the stage for the first Republican presidential debate at the Quicken Loans Arena Thursday, Aug. 6, 2015, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)Marcus W. Skelton, a former candidate for a D.C. Council at-large seat in 2006, said he hasn’t chosen which Republican candidate to back for the nomination. “I’m looking at Bush, Carly Fiorina, Christie, Walker, and Paul,” he said, referring to Fiorina, a participant in a run-up presidential debate earlier that day. “I want to see who is going to deal with improving the economy and fighting high unemployment.”During the two-hour event, the questions posed by Fox News journalists Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace, and Brett Baier, had little to do with issues that Blacks, in America, deal with.In a rare instance of a Black-oriented query, Walker was asked whether Black Lives Matter, and the governor responded that law enforcement officers need to be better trained on the proper use of force and hinted that those who didn’t use their training properly should be disciplined accordingly.When Wallace asked the candidates what they would say if Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused them of being insensitive to minority voter suppression, no one directly responded to his question.Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker listens during the first Republican presidential debate at the Quicken Loans Arena Thursday, Aug. 6, 2015, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)Carson, the only major Black candidate for president in the 2016 election cycle, was asked about race. “I don’t need to talk about race,” he said. He said race was not an issue when he performed operations and “it is time for us to move beyond that.”“This is the United States of America, not the divided states of America,” he said.Trump’s comedic one-liners about his opponents and his defense of controversial statements on immigration strengthened Dana Mozie’s support of him. “Donald Trump is getting a lot of support around the country because he is in touch with what America thinks,” Mozie, a Republican consultant said.  “The politicians on that stage are being politically correct and he isn’t, and that’s why people are attracted to him. He is authentic and speaks truth to power.” jwright@afro.comlast_img read more
