MODEL GEORGIA TURNS HEADS AT DONEGAL NIGHTCLUB

first_imgTOP Irish model Georgia Salpa certainly turned heads – when she dropped into a Donegal club to say hello to fans.The ex-girlfriend of Calum Best shocked the producers of a panto show earlier this month after pulling out at the last minute. And now we know why – she had a Christmas date at Ink in Letterkenny.“I love being here and I had a fantastic night,” she declared.She wasn’t however tempted by all the male talent on offer; she went back to her room at the Station House Hotel alone.The model upset dads everywhere she pulled out of The Sleeping Beauty in Dublin, a week before it was due to open. The model was due to play the part of Queen Kardashian in the production, and her decision to leave at the last minute left panto star Alan Hughes and his husband Karl Broderick, the show’s producer, non-too pleased.In a statement issued the couple said: “Her representative informed the producers that she feels she can no longer commit to the role. The producers have already been very accommodating to Georgia in her preparation for the role, that was specially written for her, and are angered at her sudden departure, which was beyond their control.”It is the second high profile event that the former girlfriend of Calum Best has withdrawn from. She was due to take part in the charity fundraiser From Catwalk to Kilimanjaro with fellow models in October, but pulled out at the 11th hour. Her place was taken by a journalist. MODEL GEORGIA TURNS HEADS AT DONEGAL NIGHTCLUB was last modified: December 24th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:georgia salplast_img read more

Dalit man’s body exhumed for autopsy

first_imgA day after an FIR was lodged in connection with the death and burial of a 22-year-old Dalit man in the Sirka area of the district, the police on Friday exhumed the body in the presence of a magistrate and sent it for autopsy, official sources said. Mukesh Ram was allegedly beaten up by three men around 12 days ago. He succumbed to his injuries a week later. In a complaint filed on Thursday, Mukesh’s elder sister Champa Kumari said the three men not only assaulted his brother, but also forced her family members to bury the body, Sub-Divisional Police Officer Radha Prem Kishore said. “Mukesh, who was allegedly beaten up on July 23, underwent primary treatment at a local hospital and returned home. A week later, however, his condition deteriorated and he died on the way to hospital,” Mr. Kishore said quoting the FIR.Ms. Kumari also alleged that her family was not allowed to perform the last rites of her brother. Minutes after Ms. Kumari filed the police complaint on Thursday, representatives of various socio-religious organisations, along with local people, gheraoed the Ramgarh police station, demanding immediate arrest of the accused, the officer said. Two of the three accused have been identified as Samir Ansari and Ashique Ansari, the SDPO said. “All three are at large and a team of officers is looking for them. The police are also trying to ascertain the reason behind the assault.”last_img read more

Ecologists protest against govt’s plan to turn Pichavaram mangrove forests into a resort

first_imgThe Pichavaram tourist complex: battlegroundEcologists in Tamil Nadu have declared war on the state Government. The battleground is Pichavaram, 200 km out of Madras, one of the best preserved mangrove forests in the country. The state Government is keen on developing this magnificent 5,000-acre forest into a tourist resort with,The Pichavaram tourist complex: battlegroundEcologists in Tamil Nadu have declared war on the state Government. The battleground is Pichavaram, 200 km out of Madras, one of the best preserved mangrove forests in the country. The state Government is keen on developing this magnificent 5,000-acre forest into a tourist resort with boating, surfing and water-skiing facilities along with cottages located in the area.To fight this, the Tamil Nadu Science Forum and the Madras Naturalists Society recently convened a meeting of prominent biologists, zoologists, naturalists and marine biologists who have cried halt to the project and want the setting up of an expert committee on how to best utilise this “natural laboratory”.Mangrove forests are found only in the tropics where they grow by the seaside and along river banks where the water is brackish. The vegetation is distinctive as it is able to take root in the loose and highly saline soil. India has an estimated 20 lakh acres of mangrove forests, the largest ones being in West Bengal and the Andamans.The reason why Pichavaram has so many crusaders is that it is one of the few left where the complete sequence of mangrove zonation is in evidence from dense foliage with stilted roots on the banks to sparse vegetation at the edge.Increased Erosion: Another factor that has contributed to the lushness of Pichavaram is the three rivers that flow through its 10 km long and 3 km wide area. The rivers form a maze of shallow channels which are so numerous and tricky that the local populace jokingly remarks that even the egrets which are familiar with the waterways get lost in Pichavaram. However, studies done by the French Institute indicate that the development work has already increased coastal erosion.Said Professor V. M. Meher Homji, a botanist at the Institute: Pichavaram must be preserved not only because it is a natural laboratory but also because it has been an important factor in stabilising the shifting coastline. The felling of trees has also led to salt encrustment on the soil thus preventing any new vegetation in the denuded sections.advertisementThe location of the cottages within the wooded area will lead to other problems: ecologists feel that with a growing tourist trade the populace would soon start plundering the forests for fuel and fodder.The repercussions are likely to extend beyond the ecological field. Reports from the Centre for Advanced Studies in Marine Biology of the Annamalai University at Perangipettai reveal that Pichavaram is a rich breeding ground and nursery for such lucrative seafood as prawns, lobsters and crabs.With building activities as well as the introduction of water sports once the resort is completed, the shallow channels which criss-cross the forest will no longer be able to harbour the varied marine life. Warns Meher Homji: Any further disturbances to the delicate balance of the eco-system will lead to the rapid deterioration of the mangrove forests.Limited Success: The ecologists have now asked the Government to stop all further construction in Pichavaram. They suggest that the cottages and the resort area be located in Chidambaram, a tourist centre just 11 km away, and groups be brought to the mangrove forests for day trips.After repeated letters to the Tamil Nadu Government, the Department of Environment and the prime minister, Meher Homji was asked last fortnight to meet the Committee on Tourist Excursions, chaired by V. Chandralekha, collector of Cuddalore district under which Pichavaram falls.The meeting was partly successful with the members agreeing to recommend to the Government a proposal to drop water sports and prohibit motor boats in the channels. Only row boats would be allowed. No decision, however, was taken on the shifting of the cottages. Chandralekha told India Today in Cuddalore: We have no intention of clashing with the ecologists.We are equally keen on preserving Pichavaram and will try our best to implement their suggestions. But with construction of the cottages proceeding briskly, the mangrove forests of Pichavaram may soon become a thing of the past.last_img read more
