Indian Govt to Introduce New Ticket Prices for Taj Mahal

first_imgVisitors to the Taj Mahal will have to pay Rs 200 to enter the main mausoleum and the tombs in the basement from April 1 onwards. Visitors will also have to pay a fee of Rs 50 instead of Rs 40 to enter the UNESCO World Heritage site.While the Indian Ministry of Culture seems to be having a rethink about its proposal to impose a limit on the number of tourists visiting the 16th century monument per day, it is going to change the fee structure. The move will help preserve the Taj Mahal, and ensure better crowd management, Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma said on Feb. 13.There was no entry fee so far for the main mausoleum, where Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal’s tombs are housed. The entry fee will be valid only for three hours, at the end of which the visitor will have to pay the amount again.“We need to preserve Taj Mahal for the generations to come. New barcoded tickets would cost ₹50 instead of the earlier ₹40 and it would be valid only for three hours,” Sharma said at a media briefing. “A separate ticket of ₹200 will be needed to enter into the main mausoleum to ensure the protection of the area and better crowd management.”To avoid misuse, the barcodes on the tickets would help the Archaeological Survey of India to calculate the time spent by the visitor inside the monument.Sharma said: “On an average, Taj Mahal receives about 40,000 to 50,000 tourists daily. This number swells to nearly 1.5 lakh levels over weekends and on holidays. To control crowds, and to conserve the monument better, we consulted the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) and asked them to suggest ways.”The NEERI report recommended that the number of footfall at the mausoleum should be reduced to protect its integrity. “We thought capping the number of tourists per day was not a viable option, but we had to do something. The hike in prices is not to generate revenue, but to ensure that only people who are genuinely interested enter the area,” Sharma said.The ministry will make sure that foreign tourists who pay Rs 1,250 for entering the Taj Mahal get separate queues, separate toilets, complimentary bottles of mineral water, and single-window grievance redressal system. There will also be a provision of safe corridor built for them from Agra railway station to Taj Mahal.The government was exploring how they can bring about the end of “lapka culture” that makes touts fleece and harass tourists at the monument. “We are exploring how we can bring this ‘lapka culture’ to an end by bringing them under the ambit of serious offenses and organized crime so that they can be booked accordingly. First, we will warn them, then we will identify them and then we will punish them… We want to bring this in by April 1. These touts are a menace,” he said.This lapka culture, Sharma said, was not restricted to only the Taj Mahal, but is also present at other places of tourist interest like the Red Fort and Qutub Minar in New Delhi. Many tourists, both domestic and foreign, are “ambushed” right at the railway station, he added.The Supreme Court on Feb. 8 directed the Indian government to submit a vision document on the preservation of the Taj Mahal within four weeks as pollution continued to degrade the monument.

Manpreet to miss Azlan Shah Cup following fathers demise

first_imgIpoh (Malaysia), Apr 6 (PTI) Indian mens hockey team today suffered a big jolt even before the start of their Sultan Azlan Shah Cup opener against Japan after centre-half Manpreet Singh was ruled out of the tournament following the sudden death of his father. Manpreet today returned home on hearing the death of his father just before Indias opening fixture against Japan, which the Sardar Singh-led side won 2-1 at the Sultan Azlan Shah Stadium here. Indias squad was reduced to 17 for the opening match against Japan and to make matters worse they will not be able to get a replacement for Manpreet. Manpreet got the news of his fathers demise hours before the match against Japan. He was immediately given permission to return to Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur and board the evening flight to India. It takes three hours by road to reach Kuala Lumpur from Ipoh. A minutes silence was observed before the start of the match between India and Japan. The Indian team also sported black arm-bands as a mark of respect to Manpreets father. India chief coach Roelant Oltmans said the loss of the pivotal centre-half was a big blow for the team. “Losing Manpreet is a big blow to the team. He has to be with his family at this critical moment,” said Oltmans. Oltmans said after checking with the tournament director and International Hockey Federation (FIH) staffs, he got to know that India were not allowed to bring in a replacement for Manpreet as per the tournament rules. “We cannot bring any replacement. The tournament rules are such that any replacement of players is permitted until the team managers meeting,” said Oltmans. “The meeting of team managers was held yesterday. Theres not much that can be done,” the coach said, adding that the Indian squad would now be officially made 17. PTI Cor SSC SSCadvertisementlast_img read more

Cardiff and Nantes agree extension for first payment of Emiliano Sala fee

first_imgShare on Messenger Share on Pinterest Reuse this content Share via Email Emiliano Sala Emiliano Sala died from head and trunk injuries, inquest hears Share on LinkedIn Share on Twitter Read more Share on Facebook Sala was killed when the private plane bringing him to Cardiff crashed into the Channel on 21 January, two days after his record move. The Lincolnshire pilot David Ibbotson remains missing.Nantes’ lawyers wrote to Cardiff on 5 February asking for the first of three annual payments for the player, as was agreed last month, to be paid within 10 working days. Cardiff, however, want to wait until the investigation into the crash is complete.They are also querying “anomalies” in contract details but their chairman, Mehmet Dalman, has said they will be “honourable” with Nantes over the transfer fee if they are contractually obliged to play.Cardiff say several questions must be answered about the accident. Any wrongdoing in regards to the flight could annul the Welsh club’s reported £16m insurance policy for Sala and, if that wrongdoing was another party’s responsibility, they may have to sue for compensation.Nantes are eager to find a replacement for Sala, their leading scorer for the past three seasons. The situation is further complicated by Nantes owing Bordeaux 50% of the fee because of a sell-on clause agreed when they bought Sala in 2015.If the dispute is not resolved, it could end up in the hands of Fifa and its dispute resolution chamber (DRC), the body that arbitrates when players or clubs have a disagreement. However, it is possible that both sides would agree to go straight to the court of arbitration for sport in Lausanne. Nantes Cardiff City news Cardiff and Nantes have agreed to push back the date for payment of the first instalment of the £15m transfer fee for Emiliano Sala until 27 February.The Premier League club had been asked to pay €6m (£5.27m) to Nantes on 20 February but it is understood a week’s delay has been agreed.

England 2-0 Denmark: five talking points from the World Cup warm-up

first_imgShare on LinkedIn Reuse this content Share on Pinterest Read more Topics England women’s football team Surely not. Phil Neville’s side improved significantly when Karen Carney and Fran Kirby came on and they switched to 4-2-3-1, with Jill Scott dropping deeper alongside Jade Moore in central midfield. Significantly, Kirby, Carney and the withdrawn Georgia Stanway relish deployment in the No 10 role, which a pure 4-3-3 is not designed to accommodate.3) England must do better if they are to prosper in FranceGranted, the somewhat lucky Lionesses found a way to win, but if they are as slapdash in possession as this in France, England will struggle to reach the last eight, let alone the final four. The absence of the rested Steph Houghton and Lucy Bronze was keenly felt and the narrowness of the initial formation invited Denmark’s full-backs to attack, while tight marking negated the first-half influence of Moore.4) Are the Lionesses tired?A disjointed England often looked half a yard off the pace. Could they be jaded after recently completing their first full winter season following the WSL’s switch from a summer game? Perhaps significantly, Japan, one of the Lionesses’ group-stage opponents in France, and the US, the World Cup holders, kicked off their respective domestic campaigns in March. Might teams with fresher legs come to the forefront this summer?5) Jill Scott emphasised her enduring importanceAlthough the Karens, Bardsley and Carney, and Beth Mead impressed, Scott was England’s best player in Walsall. Her knack of making late, catalytic, runs into the box could prove invaluable next month and, from one such manoeuvre, she headed the second goal. Earlier, Scott’s driving run and beautifully weighted through pass almost created a goal for Ellen White.Comments on this article are premoderated to ensure that the discussion remains relevant to the issues raised by the contributor. 1) What a shame Denmark won’t be in FranceIt is testament to the growing strength of the women’s game that a side as decent as Denmark have failed to qualify for this summer’s tournament. The beaten finalists at Euro 2017 lost again here, but were frequently the better team and succeeded in highlighting England’s new-found defensive disorganisation.2) Is 4-3-3 really England’s best formation?

Maersks Focus Switch Prompts Moodys Rating Review

first_imgzoom  Maersk’s separation of energy companies from its core business might drive its rating downgrade, according to Moody’s Investors Service, which has continued its review of the Baa2 issuer rating and senior unsecured rating of Denmark-based shipping and energy company. Moody’s review also includes Maersk’s senior unsecured medium-term note (MTN) programme’s (P) Baa2 rating.“The continuation of the rating review reflects ongoing uncertainty with respect to the application of proceeds of the Total S.A. shares,” said Maria Maslovsky, Moody’s Vice President and the lead analyst for Maersk.“Also, the Maersk Oil sale is not closed yet and the separation of Maersk Drilling and Maersk Supply Service is still pending,” added Maslovsky.Maersk is pursuing a focus switch of its business strategy and plans to concentrate the group’s future activities on transport and logistics.The move was ascribed to recent years’ downfall of the oil and gas industry markets, among other things.The strategy change saw Maersk Oil sold off to Total S.A  in August for USD 7.45 billion in a combined share and debt transaction. In addition, Maersk Tankers was sold to one of the group’s subsidiaries APMH Invest A/S in October for USD 1.17 billion in an all-cash transaction.The proceeds of the sale of the two businesses, including that of the Dansk Supermarked disposition (USD 0.9 billion), are slated for cutting of debt.Buyers for Maersk Drilling and Maersk Supply Service are expected to be found before the end of 2018.“Today’s (December 8) rating action reflects Moody’s understanding that Maersk has not yet determined the exact use of the proceeds of 97.5 million of Total S.A. (Aa3) stable shares it is due to receive as part of the sale of Maersk Oil,” the rating agency said, adding that it would conclude the review once the use of proceeds is determined.Maersk said earlier that it would return a significant portion of the shares to the APMM shareholders during 2018-2019, however, the exact amount depends upon the company’s performance and the solutions found for the Maersk Drilling business, Moody’s added.As indicated, Maersk is expected to gain a high degree of flexibility in terms of managing its leverage levels from the Total deal. However, the conglomerate will need to pay some of its debt soon, especially given the volatile nature of the ocean shipping industry, which is not anticipated to abate in the near term.Maersk has a liquidity reserve of USD 10.6 billion as of September 30, 2017, excluding committed financing for the Hamburg Sud acquisition. The group has a little over USD 1 billion of debt maturities in Q4 2017 and less than USD 2 billion in 2018 which are expected to be refinanced in due course, the rating agency said.Moody’s estimates adjusted Gross Debt to EBITDA of around 3x for the Transportation & Logistics businesses only in 2018, which is high for the Baa2 rating given that the industry has recovered from a low point in the cycle in 2016.In order to keep its strong Baa2 rating grade Maersk will need to maintain its debt/EBITDA below 3.0x at all points in the cycle and demonstrate greater stability in achieving a positive EBIT margin at Maersk Line on a consistent basis.In addition, a debt/EBITDA leverage of below 3.5x would need to be sustained through the shipping cycle for an investment grade credit profile.If the said preconditions are met, Maersk’s rating could be stabilized.However, the rating is likely to be downgraded if the company’s debt/EBITDA ranges between 3.0x and 3.5x pro forma for the separation of the energy businesses whilst not exceeding 3.5x at all points in the cycle. Consistent negative free cash flow (after capex and dividends) would also create pressure on the rating, Moody’s said.last_img read more

Almost 14000 children waiting on orthodontic treatments

first_imgTHERE ARE ALMOST 14,000 children waiting on orthodontic treatments across the country, new figures have revealed.According to the Department of Health, the waiting list is not structured in terms of first-come-first-served, but is manipulated in terms of who is in need of immediate assistance.About 462 patients have been waiting for more than four years but up to 5 per cent of these cases are due to necessary waiting times to allow the jaw to develop fully.Dr Katherine Condren, the President of the Orthodontic Society of Ireland, told TheJournal.ie that the waiting lists are not worse than expected.“You can only treat so many patients at a time,” she said. “The numbers are in line with the fact that there is a moratorium in place within the HSE.”The HSE provides orthodontic treatment to those who have been assessed and referred for treatment before their 16th birthday.“As we know, treatment can go on a long time,” continued Dr Condren. “Particularly in patients with severe issues. Obviously, it is not ideal, we do not want to see children walking around Ireland with crooked teeth and would like to treat them at an opportune time.”However, she added that the system is effective at prioritising those who need to be treated quickly.“When I take patients off the list, some of them have only just been placed on it,” she explained. “Others are waiting on that call that never comes. It is not perfect. Teenagers do not want to not look good during those years but from a clinical point of view, there is not the same impetus on being treated.”Dr Condren, who is a specialist orthodontist practicing in Terenure, said that the lifting of the HSE moratorium on recruitment of both dentists and support staff, including nurses and radiographers, would both improve services and reduce waiting lists.The message is echoed by the Irish Dental Association.Iseult Bouarroudj, the newly elected President of the HSE Dental Surgeon group and a leading representative of the body, told a conference yesterday that the current recruitment embargo was having a hugely negative impact.“Where services have been reduced we have seen an increase in patients presenting with pain and infection, necessitating complex treatment and in certain circumstances, acute hospital admission,” she explained. “Waiting lists for treatment under general anaesthesia, orthodontics and oral surgery have soared due to the lack of resources. This is a reprehensible consequence of the circumstances which now prevails in our public dental service.”About 350 public service dentists see over 250,000 children every year in Ireland.Bouarroudj also said that despite the continued efforts of staff to provide the best service, morale in the public dental sector had plummeted.“We are calling on the Minister for Health to reinstate sufficient numbers of staff in all HSE areas to ensure patients of the public dental service and orthodontic service have access to equitable services, irrespective of geographic location” she said.Figures released in a response to a parliamentary question showed that the largest waiting lists were in the HSE West region.Commenting on the figures, junior minister Alex White noted that an independent review of the services had been commissioned.“The outcome of this review, which is near completion, will give guidance as to what changes will be desirable to provide the best possible model of care delivery, given the current resources available and future demand for services,” he concluded.Related: Warning about ‘quick-fix’ teeth straighteningWarning: Tongue piercings affect speech, sense of taste and cause droolingDailyEdge.ie: 9 things everyone dreads about the dentistlast_img read more

How A Fan Got Weezer To Cover Totos Africa

first_img How A Fan Got Weezer To Cover Toto’s “Africa” Email Twitter OK, drop what you’re doing and listen to Rivers Cuomo and Weezer bless our ears with their version of “Africa”Tim McPhateGRAMMYs May 29, 2018 – 10:23 am Weezer have been in a Toto mood lately. Following last week’s cover of the GRAMMY-winning “Rosanna,” Rivers Cuomo & Co. have swung for the fences in tackling another Toto tune, “Africa,” not only a No. 1 hit but a song science has deemed the best song ever. So, what gives?It turns out the group’s take on blessing the rains down in “Africa” comes with a unique social twist. The rendition has materialized after a Cleveland-based teenage fan named Mary lobbied for months via Twitter to get the group to cover the popular 1982 hit.Starting back in December 2017, Mary tweeted Rivers Cuomo that “it’s about time you bless the rains down in Africa.” Last week, it seemed Weezer may have been listening when they released their cover of “Rosanna.” However, Mary confirmed via Twitter today — from her aptly titled handle @weezerafrica — that the band released their version of “Africa.” News center_img Listen To This: Weezer Covers Toto’s “Africa” how-fan-got-weezer-cover-totos-africa Facebook Why “Africa”? In an interview with Noisey, Mary explained that it was one of those happy accidents.”It was just a goofy joke,” she said. “It was from Weezer talking about [how] they were inspired for their new album Daydream, what inspired them. So I jokingly said, ‘Oh I bet they were inspired by ‘Africa’ by Toto for their new album.'”As for their version, Weezer stay true to form on the classic rock gem, save for more modern-sounding takes on David Paich’s swirly keyboard solo and Steve Lukather’s patented power chord riffing.”Rosanna” and “Africa” were a pair of hits on 1982’s mammoth Toto IV album. At the 25th GRAMMY Awards, “Rosanna” captured Record Of The Year Honors and Toto IV earned Album Of The Year.Weezer were recently featured on the GRAMMY Museum’s “Required Listening” podcast, during which the group detailed their 2016 self-titled album (aka “The White Album”).

A Long Wait for FirstTime Buyers

first_img 21 days ago 301 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination Share A Long Wait for First-Time Buyerscenter_img Rising home prices, competition, and a decrease in inventory are just some of the issues plaguing the housing market. However, a new report by realtor.com says first-time buyers are getting hit the worse.Realtor.com states that of the expected home buyers this spring, 42% were shopping for a home for the first time, and the search for their first home took longer than ever.The report states that a quarter of the first-time buyers searched for a home for more than a year and compared to 11% two years ago. Also, a third of first-time buyers were in the market for more than six months, compared to 18% two years ago. “First-time buyers are usually younger and are motivated by getting married or starting a family,” said Danielle Hale, realtor.com’s Chief Economist. “They’re looking for the type of home where they can have it all: space, affordability, and a good school system.”Realtor.com added that 45% of new buyers are searching for homes in small towns and rural areas, 34% are in suburbs, and 16% plan to stay in the city. A recent Wallethub survey details the best market first first-time buyers, who made up 39% of single-family home purchases in 2018.The report found that Tampa Bay, Florida, was the best market for first-time buyers, as it has a “real estate market” rank of No. 2 and came in at No. 13 for quality of life. Tampa Bay also came in as the best large city for first-time buyers.

let’s not do this any other way Representational image AFP We have written this article to express our worries and concerns over the way we are discriminating against citizens from the North East Incidents of violence and abuse related to racial discrimination have been surfacing from most major cities in the country Students and professionals from the North East have been harassed abused and even murdered simply because they were "different" We have been quick to label people and form judgements; if we see a young boy from the North East with a distinct hairstyle and sporting tattoos we assume that he is either a "junkie" an alcoholic or a drug peddler Nido Tania was just another 20-year-old boy having fun in a Delhi market with his friends when he was mocked for his "funny" hairstyle And just like any other normal teenager he retorted However what ensued after was not normal and Nido lost his life Yes the colour of his skin was of a different shade; yes he had Mongolian features; and yes his food habits and dressing choices were different but all that should not have made him any less worthy of respect and appreciation It was in response to this and other such incidents that the Bezbaruah Committee was set up The committee came up with useful directives to address the growing menace of discrimination However putting these directives into action is our responsibility We need to start by sensitising ourselves towards the needs and concerns of the northeastern community It has been highlighted in a number of reports that migrants from the North East avoid interacting with the police simply because they feel unsafe around them This is bizarre If those who are tasked to protect us do not inspire confidence then we are clearly doing something wrong We therefore need civil society groups to conduct awareness and sensitisation workshops for police officers and constables Sensitising the law enforcement agencies has to be the first step in addressing the problem Bodies such as NCERT can also help sensitise the other stakeholders in society towards the northeastern community NCERT can add a chapter on the history and culture of the North East in school curriculum so that students are familiar with the unique culture of the region from a young age Universities and colleges can also run short orientation sessions designed especially for students from the North East who are new to the city A cultural forum can be set up in collaboration with educational institutions and student associations The main objective of such a forum will be to conduct cultural festivals showcasing different North East traditions cultures handicrafts etc The government should initiate and fund mechanisms to organise awareness campaigns on rights Most surveys have found little understanding of the legal system and low awareness of important legislation such as the Prevention of Atrocities Against Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Act If citizens don’t know how to exercise their rights there is only so much that the legal system do to ensure justice Support can also be offered by running campaigns through social media channels such as Facebook and WhatsApp These channels can play a big role in cultivating a community spirit and offering support and advice in times of need This will not only help them adjust better and faster but people would also know whom to reach out to in case they need help and support By taking these small but proactive steps governments and educational institutions can fulfil their promise of creating a just and equitable society where diversity is not only embraced but also celebrated For it is not only the victimised community that suffers alone;
