Click here to vote in our poll“I didn’t expect to be in the top six or seven at the start of the year.“I knew it was going to be tough because of where we were – we came up last year after finishing fourth, pulling off a miracle and scoring a wonder goal when we were under the cosh with 10 men.“It was always going to be hard. We left it late to go into the market and I think we brought some decent players, we just need to bring them up to speed.“It’s just not easy when you throw a team together and we were late doing that. What can you do? You can only do your best.“We just need a win. One win and we can go up about six places.

first_imgAPTN National News SARNIA, Ont.–A rail blockade launched by Aamjiwnaang First Nation members on a CN line in Sarnia, Ont., is expected to end Thursday at midnight.Ron Plain, the spokesman for the blockade, said the blockade was ended in a negotiated settlement with Sarnia police after an Ontario judge ordered it shut down.Plain called it “a huge community victory” and the first victory of the Idle No More movement.He said the blockade, which began Dec. 21, 2012, had proven its point and didn’t need to continue. Plain said they were already negotiating to have the blockade end on Saturday.The blockade was originally launched in support of hunger-striking Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence’s demand for a treaty meeting between Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Gov. Gen. David Johnston and First Nations leaders.Plain was found in contempt Wednesday of a court injunction ordering an end to the blockade. He was ordered by the court not to go near the site of the blockade unless it involved negotiating its end.The ending to the Aamjiwnaang blockade leaves only the Mi’kmaq from Listuguj First Nation still holding a rail blockade. The Mi’kmaq there have been blocking the railway at Pointe-a-la-Croix in Quebec since Dec. 28, 2012.More rail and highway blockades, however, are expected in the coming days and weeks.First Nations chiefs are planning to hold a national day of action on Jan. 16 which could see the beginning of indefinite blockades across the country.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: The state Water Resources Investigation and Development Department (WRIDD) will soon undertake Minor Irrigation Census (MIC) to have a comprehensive figure of the waterbodies in the entire state.The exercise will be conducted by the State Water Investigation Directorate (SWID) that comes under the aegis of the WRIDD and is responsible for carrying out investigation along with a quantitative and qualitative assessment of water resources in the state. This is for the first time when the census will include even the surface waterbodies like very small pools of water. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life”The aim behind the move is to have a concise data for sensible and logical planning when it comes to using water for irrigation. We cannot deny the fact that groundwater level is depleting and we feel that it is high time to take measures to prevent indiscriminate extraction of groundwater,” a senior official of the WRIDD department said. It may be mentioned that Minor Irrigation covers all waterbodies that include an area less than 2000 hectare. It excludes all the river systems like Teesta, Damodar, Kansabati, Mayurakshi that comes under the category of Major Irrigation.

We are waiting for the approval. The census will begin as soon as we get the nod and our target is to complete the study within a period of one year,” the official added. According to the official, as many as 25 to 30 types of waterbodies including tube wells will be covered under the MIC. SWID is also in the process of preparing a scientific database to curb indiscriminate groundwater extraction. The Directorate will classify all the 341 blocks in the state into three categories — critical, semi-critical and safe and accordingly prepare a roadmap for scientific use of groundwater in the near future. Apart from designating blocks based on the three parameters, the state government will also come out with a direction for the agencies about how much water extraction will be allowed for agriculture or industry purposes.last_img read more

first_imgParenting is an art and all of us would like to be the best parents we can be for our children. Quality of parental engagement in a child’s life virtually makes up for his/her outlook on life and a good parent is one who makes decisions in best interest of child. However, in a rapidly changing world where times have changed so drastically parenthood should also be no exception to transformation. So here are a few takeaways that can enable your flower like child to blossom. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfNo one is perfect Being mindful of the fact that no one is perfect – neither the parent nor the child – will help both in fine tuning their great expectations as the times roll on. But that doesn’t mean we shall not work towards that goal. Since children are very potent observers and learn most from their parents, they should become the person they want their child to be. Even some studies suggest that children who hit usually have a role model for aggression at home. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSo, if we want our child to exhibit traits like friendliness, kindness, compassion, respect, honesty then all these soulful things must arise in our beings in the first place. Interestingly, apart from modelling a role for children, one should perhaps also inculcate a subtle sense in them to neither look up to anyone nor look down on anyone as it can transform a child and allow him/her to find his own rhythm in life. Flexing discipline Discipline pervades every household no doubt. Now, as parents we would also want to regulate our children’s behaviour or say assist them in their own regulation of it. But when it is about discipline, being positive about it has always seemed hard. However, incorporating innovative measures like creating a situation where a child has to earn privileges such as TV time only by good attitude or after completing homework rather than lose them as a penalty can help practice positive discipline. Physical discipline like spanking which relatively creates negative experiences in a child should be avoided as it can result in aggressive, unnatural behaviour which may escalate later on in life and hamper individuality. The overall disciplinary message should be that you do love the child but you don’t like the behaviour. Don’t love, become loving Loving someone unconditionally is one of most profound experiences ever and children must be adorned with love as much as possible. Just as food nurtures our body, love is the nourishment for soul. Even science reveals that simple acts love like giving hugs, spending time and listening to their issues seriously, riding together through high and low tides of emotions and so on enables release of feel-good hormones such as as oxytocin, opioids and prolactin which instills a deep sense of serenity, emotional warmth, contentment in them and above all an intimate relation with you is woven. And too much loving isn’t going to spoil the child as long as things like unaware leniency, over-protection, over-parenting, conditionings, material indulgence are swapped for true love and that’s actually when the child is spoiled. Become a safe haven for him, support and accept child as an individual. Love is about freedom. Earning education Being a parent comes with its own perks and hardships and in this socio-economic world there also exist other essential things which indeed play an important role in shaping the child and one of them is education. It is as crucial in shaping one’s perspective towards life as earning and sustaining his/her livelihood, if nothing else. The quality of education child imbibes over time in his life is of immense importance and mustn’t be overlooked by parents. Quality education exudes real learning– it gives insight into things. Undoubtedly, schools and institutions have their place in modern times but unfortunately the kind of education we are familiar with these days has down the years morphed into a ‘discipline-centric’ thing; seems outdated and tends to box the child’s numerous potentialties hidden within which otherwise should flourish. Interdisciplinary learning and the innate experimenting can go a long way in qualitising the education and give it real meaning.last_img read more
