In a major change of strategy to counter red extremists, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) will replace the traditional INSAS weapons used by its personnel in Naxal bastions in 10 States with AK series rifles.And to reduce the influence of Maoists in one of their last bastions, the CRPF is moving a fresh contingent of 2,000 personnel in Chhattisgarh’s south Bastar area, which it said was its “biggest challenge“. A battalion consists of 1,000 personnel.“South Bastar remains one of their [Naxals] last bastions…in that area we plan to reduce their [Maoists] influence.“We are looking to deploy one battalion in that area soon. While one has just moved, we plan to induct more troops,” CRPF Director General R R Bhatnagar told reporters on the eve of the 78th Raising Day of the forceA senior CRPF officer later told PTI that the government has recently authorised the force to replace all its INSAS weapons with the AK series (47 and 56) of assault rifles in the 10 Naxal violence hit states where it is deployed to carry out operations.“It is a generational shift in terms of weaponry. The INSAS has been the standard weapon of the force but the Naxal theatre is very hot and requires quick and heavy fire power.“Hence, all CRPF units in Naxal-hit states will henceforth only have AK rifles. A few INSAS rifles would be kept for special purposes,” the officer said.An AK rifle is considered superior to the indigenously made INSAS (Indian Small Arms System) as its fire is accurate, spews quick bullets and is better to operate in jungle warfare conditions.Talking about the Left Wing Extremism theatre, where the CRPF is declared as the lead operations force, the DG said the area of influence of Maoists in states like Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha and West Bengal has “shrunk” and there has been a sizable impact in the areas they control there.“In the last two—and—a—half years, the incidents of Naxal violence have reduced in all these states,” he said.With the induction of the two new battalions, the CRPF will now establish more camps in the deep jungle areas along the southern tip of Chhattisgarh where the most Naxal violence affected districts of Sukma and Dantewada meet the borders of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Odisha.This tri-junction is considered the most deadliest as Maoists cadres frequently move here taking advantage of the difficult terrain interspersed with hills, jungles and small rivers.“Some permanent camps will now be opened in the ‘Madh’ area of the Abujhmaad jungles in Chhattisgarh where there is no presence of government machinery. But, this will take some time to happen,” an official has saidBhatnagar, who took after the CRPF lost 37 men in Sukma district in a span of few days in March this year, said the force has done some “detailed analysis” of these incidents and have found certain factors that need to be dealt with.“We are now having close coordination with the state police…the security of our troops in terms of their preparedness, equipments, rations and others, is foremost.“Some new standard operating procedures have been made.All round efforts are being made to make the jawan safe,” the DG said.We are looking at different technologies for surveillance in these areas, he said adding that these include procurement of smart gadgets and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).An official data provided by the force said the CRPF has killed 51 Maoists, apprehended 1,111, got surrendered 834 and recovered 562 arms and 1,180 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) from the Naxal violence hit states this year.There are a total of 31 CRPF battalions (31,000 personnel) deployed in Chhattisgarh, with the maximum being in the Bastar region.The Central Reserve Police Force was raised on July 27, 1939 as Crown Representative’s Police (CRP) and at present is the largest paramilitary of the world having about three lakh personnel.
Police on Sunday said two debt-ridden onion farmers from Maharashtra’s Nashik district committed suicide in the last two days, due to indebtedness and low rates commanded by the bulb in markets.The deceased were identified as Tatyabhau Khairnar, 44, and Manoj Dhondage, 33. Both of them hailed from Baglan taluka in the north Maharashtra district. Nashik accounts for 50 per cent of onion production in India. Farmers here have claimed that they are unable to fetch good returns for their produce due to a glut in production. The official said the relatives of Mr. Khairnar said that he was unable to sell his 500 quintals of onions due to low rates. “He had a debt of ₹11 lakh,” one of his relatives said. Mr. Dhondage had an outstanding loan of ₹21 lakh, his family said.Suicide prevention helpline in Mumbai: AASRA: 022-27546669; Chennai: Sneha: 044-24640050; Delhi: Sanjivini: 011-40769002.

AdvertisementThe London club have signed Maurizio Sarri on a three year deal after sacking their current manager Antonio Conte. Conte was sacked by the Blues after just two years at the helm. During those two years, Chelsea added two silver wares to their trophy cabinet having won the Premier League in 2016-17 and the FA Cup in the following year. Conte’s future at the club was questioned towards the business end of his second season as manager as they played a very uninspiring and stagnant style of football and on 13th July, he decided to part ways with the English Club. Chelsea released the official statement just a few days after former Napoli midfielder Jorginho’s medical at Chelsea.Napoli under Sarri have played the most eye catching and attacking style of football in all of Europe. Napoli scored 126 goals last season in all competitions. Much of the credit goes to Sarri and his staff oft-referred to as the four wizards that work along with him. But at Chelsea, Sarri will have to start from scratch as all of his trusted backroom staff have decieded to stay put at Napoli and work under current Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti. Former Chelsea forward Gianfranco Zola has been appointed as Sarri’s assistant manager.This decision to change the manager just a month before Premier League kicks off could prove disastrous as it will tough for the Italian manager to assemble a completely new backroom staff that are familiar with the English style of management.Read also :Football: Antonio Conte set on facing the ‘blues’ as The Blues sack himFIFA World Cup 2018: These 2 teams have been represented at EACH WC Finals since 1982!

Boston Celtics’ Jayson Tatum, left, drives the ball against Golden State Warriors’ Glenn Robinson III (22) in the first half of an NBA basketball game Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, in San Francisco. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)SAN FRANCISCO— Yet another Golden State starter went down with an injury when D’Angelo Russell sprained his right thumb, but the Warriors still made mighty Boston work until the waning moments.Jayson Tatum dunked after a jump ball with 1:36 left to put Boston ahead, and the Celtics held off the undermanned Warriors 105-100 on Friday night for their 10th straight win since losing the season opener.ADVERTISEMENT Russell had 12 points and seven assists but also nine of his team’s 19 turnovers before leaving with that aching thumb in the Warriors’ sixth straight defeat. X-rays were negative and he will have an MRI.Injury-plagued Golden State — playing without Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson — faced the NBA’s top two teams in consecutive games, losing to the Lakers on the road Wednesday.“We played our best defensive game of the year. That’s what really matters,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.Burks scored 20 points off the bench, making 11 of 12 free throws as Golden State’s cast of youngsters nearly pulled off a November upset by outhustling Boston for much of the night, crashing the boards and creating second chances.Jaylen Brown had 22 points and eight rebounds, and Tatum overcame a slow start to score 24 points for the Celtics, who lost Oct. 23 at Philadelphia to start the season before beginning their longest winning streak since 2017.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ View comments Ethel Booba on SEA Games cauldron: ‘Sulit kung corrupt ang panggatong’ Davis block at buzzer seals Lakers win over Kings Who are Filipinos rooting for in the NBA Finals?

As we’re a young team, we’re getting used to being the team that’s being (chased) and handling that better.”The Warriors hung tough until late, keeping the crowd engaged — something that hasn’t always been the case so far given the early struggles for a franchise that’s reached five straight NBA Finals.“Warriors fans have always appreciated high energy, hustle, toughness, great competition,” Kerr said. “You could feel it in the building tonight. Our fans really enjoyed watching our guys compete, and that’s important. We want people to come into this building and be excited about watching our team. It’s been a rough start, but if we can compete that way and play that way we’re going to win some games and our fans will enjoy what we’re doing.”Boston had four starters reach double figures in scoring after seven players did so in a 140-133 win against Washington on Wednesday.Each team was missing a star player following surgery for a broken left hand: Golden State two-time MVP Curry and Boston forward Gordon Hayward, who missed his third straight game and second since the procedure.TIP-INSCeltics: Brown and Tatum had three steals apiece, while Theis and Marcus Smart had two each. … Boston shot 7 for 23 in the first quarter and 10 of 22 in the second to lead 52-51 at the break. … The Celtics won their second straight on Golden State’s home floor and just their eighth in the last 24. … It had been nearly 50 years since Boston played in San Francisco, a 116-111 Warriors win on Feb. 21, 1970, at Civic Auditorium. … Boston is 3-0 vs. the Western Conference and 2-0 on the road.Warriors: Russell had his streak of five straight 20-point games snapped. … Curry, his hand in a brace, cheered when Golden State won a challenge midway through the third and a foul call on Eric Paschall was overturned. … C Kevon Looney, who missed the entire preseason and only played briefly in the season opener, will be re-evaluated next Wednesday for a nerve issue that has contributed to his right hamstring injury. C Alen Smailagic (right ankle sprain) is yet to play and also will be examined again Wednesday, the team said.GOLDEN STATE’S ROUGH STARTAt 2-11, the Warriors are off to their worst start since beginning 2-16 in 1999-00.

NEW YORK — Lionel Hollins had been trying to get a struggling Mason Plumlee to look like the player who won a gold medal with the U.S. national team in the Basketball World Cup.With his coach counting on him more while starting center Brook Lopez recuperated from a lower back strain, Plumlee put everything aside and went to work.Joe Johnson scored 27 points, Plumlee added 19 points and a career-high 13 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Denver Nuggets 102-96 on Dec. 23d.“Mason did a conscious decision to go and just play and not worry about what I say. If I yell at him, if I take him out of the game, just go play. His confidence is rising,” Hollins said.Denver led 85-78 with 9 minutes left after Kenneth Faried capped an 8-0 run with two free throws.Plumlee, whose name recently surfaced in trade rumors involving the Sacramento Kings, ignited Brooklyn’s 19-4 run by scoring six points, grabbing four rebounds and blocking a pair of shots as the Nets took a 97-89 advantage on Johnson’s turnaround fadeaway jumper with 2:41 remaining.“You are just in the moment, in the zone, (as) some people say, but it’s just a great feeling”, Plumlee said. “You just feel like you are anticipating things on defense, where you’re supposed to be on offense and things just come easy.”Lopez played eight minutes and had six points and four rebounds in a reserve role. The Nets can afford to take it slow with him since Plumlee has played so well in his absence. The second-year center shot 9 of 14 from the field and also blocked three shots.“It’s a good feeling, but it’s just something to build on,” Plumlee said. “I’m not where I want to be. It’s a step in the right direction. It feels good to where I was at. It’s still ways to go.”Plumlee failed at flashing his passing game, a behind-the-back pass going awry and off his foot.“Mason’s been great, man. His energy, his effort, taking the challenge and playing some of the premier 4s and 5s in this league,” Johnson said. “I think he’s been doing a tremendous job filling in for the absences of Brook.”Jarrett Jack, who started at the point in place of an injured Deron Williams, had 17 points and eight assists. Sergey Karasev added 12 points for the Nets, who won their second straight game and improved to 11-2 against sub-.500 teams.Ty Lawson led Denver with 29 points and had nine assists. Faried chipped in 20 points and 14 boards for the Nuggets, who lost their second straight game and have dropped nine of 12.After Plumlee’s four straight points trimmed the lead to 85-82 with 8:08 left, Denver coach Brian Shaw called a timeout and removed Faried. By the time Faried came back in, Brooklyn already had a 97-89 lead.“I think Mason did a great job just raising the energy level and getting the crowd involved,” Faried said. “At home, when you do that, guys get involved and it seems like the rim is as big as the ocean. It seemed like everything they put up went in.(ADRY TORRES)TweetPinShare0 Shares

zoom European short sea RoRo specialist CLdN RoRo SA has launched an ambitious expansion program which is expected to include orders for up to 12 new vessels. CLdN has placed firm orders for two 8,000 lane meter RoRo vessels, with a length of 235m, double the capacity of the majority of today’s larger short sea RoRo vessels.The company also revealed plans to place orders for further vessels of classes ranging between 4,700 and 8,000 lane meters across various yards, in Europe and in the Far East.The first orders feature innovative design, offering changeability and flexibility in their deck configuration and will have the “LNG ready” class notation, providing the option for a straightforward conversion to LNG propulsion.The design allows for the vessel to interchange between short sea RoRo services and deep sea trades.The first of these new vessels are due to enter service in Quarter 3 2017.“The expansion programm will allow CLdN to broaden the range of their services whilst also offering a very significant increase of capacity on their existing routes,” the company said in a release.CLdN currently handles 1 million cargo units and 1 million new cars and vans on an annual basis and the new vessels will generate an additional 70% capacity over the next four years, allowing current trades to expand and new routes to be developed, the company further adds.In addition, the company’s ports division C.Ro will simultaneously invest circa Euro 100 million in expanding its terminals for the arrival of the next generation vessels.CLdN operates 24 RoRo vessels, offering in excess of 100 sailings per week between the ports of Zeebrugge, Rotterdam, London, Killingholme, Dublin, Gothenburg, Esbjerg and Porto.

The province is making our roads safer. Amendments introduced today, Nov. 16, to the Motor Vehicle Act will toughen penalties for using a hand-held cellphone while driving and street racing. “Nova Scotians expect their government to take every step possible to decrease risky behaviour on our roads,” said Bill Estabrooks, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal. “By increasing penalties for those who exhibit dangerous behaviour, we are making our roads safer.” The proposed changes to the cellphone legislation will double fines for those caught using a hand-held cellphone while driving and the loss of four demerit points. The fines, range from about$225 to $570. Nova Scotia became the second province to ban hand-held cellphone use while driving in 2008. Since that time, more than 8,300 tickets have been issued. The second amendment to the act will increase penalties for street racing, including a one-year licence suspension for a first conviction, three-years for a second offence and a 10-year suspension for a third conviction. Up to six demerit points will also be assigned to a driver’s records. Actions such as engaging in a race, chasing another vehicle, and driving 50 kilometres per hour, or more, over the posted speed limit are considered street racing or stunt driving. “Some of the things police are reporting on our highways are like a bad video game come to life,” said Mr. Estabrooks. “It’s important that we underline that such behaviour is unacceptable.”

Aurora Cannabis Inc. is the latest Canadian licensed marijuana producer planning to list on an international exchange.The Edmonton-base company has been looking at listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market, the New York Stock Exchange or the London Stock Exchange’s AIM, an international market for smaller, growing companies, for some time now, said Cam Battley, chief corporate officer.Aurora, which already trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “ACB,” hopes to execute on those plans fairly soon, he said, but doesn’t have an immediate timeline.The company hs consistently taken steps to increase its shareholder audience, Battley said, so it makes perfect sense for it to look at additional international listings as it and the shareholder base expand rapidly around the world.As for whether the company could eventually list on multiple international exchanges, Battley said “let’s wait and see.”Late last month, Cronos Group Inc. became the first Canadian cannabis company to have its shares listed on the Nasdaq.It trades on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “CRON” and remains on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “MJN.”Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX:ACB)

CAIRO – Egyptian troops killed a key suspect Tuesday wanted over attacks on the army in the Sinai this year and deadly 2004 and 2006 bombings of tourist resorts, security officials said.Troops killed Mohamed Hussein Mohareb al-Shahir, his son and a third suspected militant in an operation south of the North Sinai town of Sheikh Zuwayed, the officials said.Another four suspected militants were captured in the operation, part of an intensifying campaign by the army in the restive peninsula which borders both Israel and the Gaza Strip. Shahir was suspected of involvement in a spate of attacks on the security forces in the Sinai in recent months, including an August 19 ambush that killed 25 policemen in the deadliest attack of its kind in years.Security sources said he was also implicated in bombings of tourist resorts in the south of the peninsula that killed dozens of people, among them Israeli and Western holidaymakers, in 2004 and 2006.They said he had issued a fatwa, or religious decree, justifying attacks on the security forces.Jihadist militants have stepped up attacks on security personnel in the Sinai since the army overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July.The army has since poured troops and armour into the Sinai, in an operation which Israel says has its blessing, despite provisions in their 1979 peace treaty setting strict limits on military deployments to the peninsula.
WASHINGTON — What does it take to kill the Night King?Definitely not a pair of fire-exhaling dragons. The Night King turns out to be flame retardant.Nor does the ability to loop through time and assume control of ravens’ brains help much. Bran Stark pretty much sat helpless beneath the Weirwood tree, waiting to be rescued in a way that was no different than a damsel tied to train tracks in a silent film.Past experience dueling the Night King provided to be of little help. Jon Snow — after multiple showdowns with the blue-ish personification of cold death — was pinned down far away from the action by the Night King’s own “ice” dragon.In the Associated Press’ weekly “Wealth of Westeros” series, we’re following the HBO fantasy show’s latest plot twists and analyzing the economic and business forces driving the story. This week, Arya’s triumphant assassination of the king ice zombie has prompted an appreciation among us for the role of skills, in economics as well as medieval Westeros.Because — SPOILER ALERT — it took skills to kill the Night King.Arya Stark stabbed the Night King into a shattered death. As he held her aloft in a choke hold, Arya deftly dropped a Valyrian steel knife into her free hand and plunged the blade into the Night King’s surprisingly brittle chest.Arya trained for this precise moment for almost the entire duration of the HBO series. It was the kind of outcome that few fans of the show foresaw, unless they internalized the lessons of the 18th Century philosopher Adam Smith, who is known as the “father of economics.”In his 1776 book “The Wealth of Nations,” Smith theorized that the ability to specialize in a distinct set of skills will lead to stronger economic growth. Skilled blacksmiths, tailors, lawyers, doctors, bankers and software programmers not only work more quickly, but they produce a better product. Getting skills requires a combination of time, training and teachers.This was Arya’s advantage.She took fencing lessons in King’s Landing with Syrio Forel (RIP). Orphaned and alone after Ned Stark’s death in the first season, she mastered the art of hiding in plain sight.Arya then sailed east to study how to become an assassin under the tutelage of the faceless men at the House of Black and White. She trained on the long-staff against the cruel waif, learning how to fight while blind-folded.Just before the battle of Winterfell, she commissioned a special staff with a detachable blade in order to compete against the Night King’s army. And careful viewers saw her dagger move against the Night King before, when Arya was mock-fighting Brienne of Tarth in the seventh season.Arya’s time spent learning closely resembles what economists see as one of the best job training methods available: an apprenticeship. The benefits of apprenticeships — in which companies pay workers, typically younger ones, to learn highly-specific skills — have been touted by both the Trump and Obama administrations, a rare area of bipartisan agreement.Roughly 90% of apprentices have jobs after completing their apprenticeships, with average starting pay of more than $50,000, according to a 2015 report by the Obama White House.Naturally, the unemployment rate is lower for workers who are perceived as having more skills. Just 2% of college graduates are unemployed, almost half the rate of people with only a high school diploma.But the United States isn’t investing sufficiently in skills training, even though such a move is touted as conventional wisdom by business and political leaders. A report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that, out of 29 developed countries, the United States spent the second-least amount on training programs, as a percentage of its economy, ahead of only Mexico.It wasn’t always that way.History also shows that, like Arya Stark, skills can help when circumstances get terrible. During the depths of the Great Depression, productivity increased and laid the foundation for an economy that could meet the demands of World War II and then boom afterward.“The resilience of (productivity) growth in the 1930s reflected U.S. success in creating a strong ‘national innovation system’ based on world-leading investments in human capital and R&D,” the economists Gerben Bakker, Nicholas Crafts and Pieter Woltjer concluded in a 2016 paper.It’s the unique skills possessed by Arya and others that might make the difference in the battle to come over control with Westeros. Queen Cersei may have 20,000 mercenaries serving as fresh troops against the battered survivors of the Battle of Winterfell. But … can any of them be stealth assassins?___Follow Josh Boak on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/JoshBoakFollow Paul Wiseman on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/PaulWisemanAPFollow Christopher Rugaber on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/ChrisRugaber___Read more Wealth of Westeros: https://www.apnews.com/WealthofWesterosJosh Boak, Christopher Rugaber And Paul Wiseman, The Associated Press
