Indian businessman Ratan Tata and Sony president and chief executive Sir Howard Stringer are set to join a raft of hand-picked industry heads in the government’s business interest group. Also in the frame are Centrica chief executive Sam Laidlaw, BAE Systems chairman Dick Olver and WPP advertising magnate Sir Martin Sorrell. The Prime Minister’s Office is set to name the advisory panel today. It is expected to be a more informal affair than Gordon Brown’s Business Council for Britain panel, which caused controversy before the election when the panel said it was happy to serve under a Conservative leadership. The new group will have some overlap in Diageo’s Paul Walsh and GlaxoSmithKline’s Andrew Witty. whatsappcenter_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Cameron ready to announce his panel of business advisers today Share whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

He first came to the limelight when he broke into the under-19 team of Afghanistan in 2019. Soon after when he turned 15 he was roped in by Melbourne Renegades in the 2020-21 edition of Big Bash League (BBL). With his stellar performances in the T20’s he went down in the 2020 auctions at a base price of 30 lakhs rupees but was unable to grab a contract with either of the franchises. This year we will see the bids for him shooting from 20 lakhs. Will his fortunes change in the 2021 IPL Auctions?Let’s have a peek at the three teams who can bid for him:- By Kunal Dhyani – February 14, 2021 TAGSIPL 201 AuctionIPL 2021IPL 2021 Youngest PlayerMI’s Purse BalanceNoor Ahmad SHARE Euro 2020, Italy vs Wales: 3 key battles to watch out for in ITA vs WAL by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likecio.comUnlocking the Success of Digital Transformation with Active Intelligencecio.comUndoMicrosoftBring your desktop to life with Bing WallpaperMicrosoftUndoPhotoStickHow To Back Up All Your Old Photos In SecondsPhotoStickUndoIPL 2021 Auction Live Streaming: Star Sports, Disney+ Hotstar to broadcast IPL Auctions Live on 8 channelsIPL 2021 Auction Maths: IPL franchises ready to spend 196.6 Cr for buying remaining players for 61 spotsIPL 2021 Auctions: BCCI’s big directive to IPL franchises, Kings XI Punjab in a fixIPL 2021 Auction: Delhi Capitals, CSK and others ask BCCI about status of South African players availability1) Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)Don’t be surprised if you see the Kings XI Punjab biding insanely for the stars in the 2021 edition of IPL Auctions as they will be going into the auctions with the maximum salary purse of 53.2 Cr rupees.

With the release of the other Afghan spin master- Mujeeb Ur Rahman, they will be looking to add the other Afghani in their ranks. With the absence of Mujeeb, the spin attack seems less lethal.

Internet still not restored in Xinjiang

first_imgNews ChinaAsia – Pacific March 12, 2021 Find out more Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes ChinaAsia – Pacific News January 29, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Internet still not restored in Xinjiang News Follow the news on China Receive email alerts Despite claims by the Chinese authorities that restrictions on Internet services and communications are gradually being lifted in the northwestern region of Xinjiang, this is not the case. Official websites such as Xinhuanet.com and People.com.cn are again available but most of the Internet is still cut off seven months after the riots.“We condemn the Chinese government’s propaganda, which is trying to give the impression that communications have been restored in Xinjiang,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Despite a few highly-publicised measures, the Internet in Xinjiang continues in practice to be cut off from the rest of the world.”The press freedom organisation added: “Such discrimination against Uyghurs and other local ethnic minorities will not in any way help to restore stability in China. It is archaic, it is a step backwards. China needs to demonstrate its commitment to the modern era by allowing all of its citizens to have unrestricted access to the Internet.”Reporters Without Borders has established that Uyghur websites such as Diyarim (http://www.diyarim.com/), Xabnam (http://www.xabnam.com/), Ulinix (http://www.ulinix.com/), Uzmakan (http://www.uzmakan.com/), Uzonline (http://www.uzonline.net/) and Zyzg (http://zyzg.us/) are still blocked. The complete list can be seen at: http://www.rsf.org/Survey-of-blocked-Uyghur-websites.htmlAnyone connecting to the Internet in Xinjiang cannot leave comments or see the forum sections on websites. Any unpatriotic comment or rumour is banned and people are being urged to denounce violators so that they can be punished. It is also impossible to send or receive emails. The Chinese authorities have continued to closely monitor all information about the Uyghurs since the inter-ethnic rioting on 5 July in Urumqi, Xinjiang’s capital.International calls are still being monitored in post offices and are now more expensive, and therefore beyond the reach of most of the population. The situation is the same with SMS messages. According to the Danwie website, a Uyghur citizen identified as Ma ZZ was arrested for sending an SMS about the security forces and Uyghur demands to several contacts on 17 January. His comments were described as “harmful,” “dangerous” and “undermining social unity and peace and public security” and he was called “criminal.” Another Uyghur, Zhou XX, reportedly confessed to sending “terrorist” SMS messages.Dilshat Parhat, Nureli, Obulkasim and Muhemmet, four cyber-dissidents and creators of Uyghur websites, continue to be detained.center_img News April 27, 2021 Find out more Organisation to go further June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Help by sharing this information China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figureslast_img read more

Prosecutor urged to probe work lead in violent death of NTV journalist

first_img March 2, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prosecutor urged to probe work lead in violent death of NTV journalist “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says BelarusEurope – Central Asia RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Reporters Without Borders has urged the prosecutor to probe a possible link with his work after TV journalist Ilya Zimin of NTV, was found dead in his Moscow apartment. He was 33.Colleagues concerned at his absence from work and failure to answer his phone, went to his home on 26 February 2006 to find the door of his apartment half open and his body lying in the middle of a disordered room. His face was covered with injuries.“Journalists in Russia often face threats when they investigate sensitive matters. The last to pay the price in this way was Paul Khlebnikov. Ilya Zimin was an investigative journalist and some people could have wanted him to disappear because of it,” the press freedom organisation said.“We urge the prosecutor in charge of the investigation not to neglect the professional lead and to make sure light is shed on this murky case.”Zimin worked for various Russian TV channels, TV6, TVS then NTV. He was named “Best Russian TV Reporter” in 2002 by TEFI.Just before his death, he was working on an investigation into the hygiene of the capital’s luxury restaurants. He often worked using a hidden camera. A judicial investigation was opened on 27 February into “injuries leading to death” under Article 11 of the Russian criminal code. The first post mortem examination found that the journalist probably died overnight on Saturday 25 February-Sunday 26 February as a result of a blow to the head with a blunt object.Experts went to the crime scene to search for finger prints and investigators are questioning witnesses. One of them reportedly saw a man running out of the victim’s apartment on the morning of 26 February carrying a suitcase. A second witness who was walking a dog in the street apparently heard someone calling for help but was unable to tell where it was coming from.The concierge said she saw three unknown individuals enter Ilya Zimin’s apartment on Sunday morning, claiming to be police officers. They apparently left the premises one hour later. It appeared that a video camera at the entrance to the building was not working on the night of the murder.Major names in Russian journalism, such as Evgeny Kisseliev, former head of NTV and former proprietor of TV6, paid tribute to Zimin, stressing his talent and professionalism.The Moscow prosecutor has not so far established a link between Zimin’s murder and his work as a journalist.

More new homes registered to be built

first_imgHome » News » Land & New Homes » More new homes registered to be built More new homes registered to be built30th September 20160541 Views Almost 12,500 new homes were registered to be built in the UK in August according to NHBC’s latest registration statistics, an increase of 20 per cent compared to the same month last year. A total of 12,486 new homes (9,225 private sector; 3,261 public sector) were registered in August, compared to 10,391 (8,385 private sector; 2,006 public sector) 12 months ago. Overall, there were 36,869 new home registrations in the rolling quarter (June 2016 – August 2016), compared to 40,123 in the same period last year, a decrease of 8 per cent.However, during these months, which coincided with the industry caution experienced directly after June’s EU Referendum, several UK regions experienced a notable growth in registrations, compared to 2015, including the North East (+54%), Yorkshire & Humberside (+31 per cent) and the South West (+23 per cent).As the leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes in the UK, NHBC’s registration statistics are a lead indicator of UK house-building activity. For 80 years, NHBC has been committed to driving up quality and raising standards in housebuilding and has approximately 80 per cent market share.Commenting on the latest figures, NHBC Chief Executive Mike Quinton said, “August’s registration statistics show that the number of new homes being registered is considerably up compared to the same time last year.“While overall rolling quarter numbers are down 8 per cent, this came during an unprecedented period of uncertainty immediately after the EU Referendum. Despite this over half of the UK regions experienced growth in registrations compared to the same three month period last year.“As ever, NHBC remains fully committed to support the industry to build new homes to the highest possible standards.”NHBC new homes Building statistics 2016-09-30Sheila Manchester Related articles Calls for ‘green belt’ to be explained to public29th April 2021 Young entrepreneur launches UK’s first ‘modern’ land buying and selling portal15th April 2021 Retail and pub re-openings sparked newbuild sales homes surge yesterday13th April 2021What’s your opinion?
