first_imgThe crisis within the ruling Naga People’s Front (NPF) government in Nagaland has further deepened with Chief Minister Shurhozelie Liezietsu sacking 10 of his parliamentary secretaries following a demand for his removal, an official said on July 9, 2017.The development comes as former Chief Minister T.R. Zeliang on July 8, 2017 wrote to Governor P.B. Acharya and staked claim to form a new government. He claimed he has the support of 33 NPF legislators and seven Independent legislators. In the wake of the demand for his removal, Mr. Liezietsu, who is also the NPF chief, terminated four NPF legislators and six Independent legislators, as parliamentary secretaries.The Nagaland government issued notifications terminating the appointment of Mr. Zeliang as Advisor (Finance) and Mr. Nuklotoshi as Advisor to Chief Minister.Apart from sacking the legislators, the NPF Disciplinary Action Committee which met on July 8, 2017 also suspended 10 legislators as primary and active members of the party.Those suspended include Home Minister Yanthungo Patton, Power Minister Kipili Sangtam, National Highway and Political Affairs Minister G. Kaito Aye, Forest and Environment Minister Imkong L. Imchen, besides, Shetoyi, Nuklutoshi, Deo Nukhu, Naiba Konyak, Benjongliba and Mr. Zeliang. Mr. Zeliang along with 41 legislators are camping at Borgos resort in Kaziranga National Park in Assam to discuss the transition of power. “All 41 of us are intact and we are waiting only for Governor Acharya to invite Zeliang to form the government,” Forest and Environment Minister Imkong L. Imchen told IANS.“We don’t care about (suspension from the party) it because those people who have signed the suspension order do not have the grassroots support,” Mr. Imchen said, while refusing to divulge further.Governor Acharya is in Maharashtra and he is expected to return to Nagaland in a few days.The fresh political instability has come at a time when Mr. Liezietsu is gearing up for the July 29 byelection from the Northern Angami-I assembly constituency. Mr. Liezietsu has however voiced confidence that the crisis within the NPF would be resolved at the earliest.Mr. Liezietsu was sworn in as Chief Minister on February 22, 2017 after Mr. Zeliang’s resignation following a violent protest by tribal groups who were opposed to his move to hold civic polls with 33% reservation for women.The Chief Minister said that he was deeply pained by the recent disturbing developments affecting the normal functioning of the government.“The current issue is within the NPF party and will be resolved at the earliest to bring about normalcy in the state. The mandate of the people will be respected and the present crisis will be resolved in the larger interest of the people of the state,” Mr. Liezietsu stated.Noting that the NPF-led government will complete its full term, the beleaguered Chief Minister appealed to the people of the state to remain calm.In his letter to the Governor, Mr. Zeliang said “The legislators also urged the present Chief Minister Shurhozelie Liezietsu, who is a non-legislator, to resign and pave way for me (Mr. Zeliang) to take over as the Chief Minister.”Claiming support of 34 (including himself) out of the 47 NPF legislators, he also told Mr. Acharya that seven Independent legislators have also affirmed their support in his favour.The legislators wanted him to continue as leader of NPF legislature party and also authorised him to stake claim to form a new NPF-led Democratic Alliance of Nagaland government.In the truncated 59-member Assembly, the ruling Democratic Alliance of Nagaland coalition government comprises 47 NPF legislators, four BJP and eight Independents. The NPF MLAs include the 10 suspended legislators.Interestingly, Mr. Zeliang has even warmed up to his once bitter rival Neiphiu Rio, a three-time Nagaland Chief Minister. Mr. Rio, the lone Lok Sabha member from Nagaland, was suspended a couple of years back for “anti-party activities”, particularly against Mr. Zeliang.last_img read more

first_imgPercepio has announced a major update of Tracealyzer, its tool for visual software tracing of RTOS-based embedded systems and IoT devices. Tracealyzer version 4 has been redesigned from the bottom up, spanning from much faster data processing to a fresh modern user interface with live visualization. It also sports a host of new features aimed at empowering embedded developers and enabling them to get their products to market faster with fewer bugs.New features are:Unlimited tracing – Monitor your application over long test runs, spanning hours, days or even weeks, and see analysis results, such as task execution times, immediately. Find interesting spots in the new trace preview and drill down into the details using the full power of Tracealyzer.Advanced live visualization – View the trace live while recording. Pause individual views to zoom in and inspect details while recording continues in the background. This way you can spot issues in the trace directly as they occur.Tracealyzer 4 provides better support for tracing Internet-of-Things devices and other connected applications with new awareness of network and I/O events. This allows for visualizing communication data rates over time, as well as the runtime interactions between tasks and communication interfaces like TCP sockets.Adapt Tracealyzer to your specific use case and see what really matters to you. Tracealyzer 4 allows you to define custom intervals that highlight and report the time between selected software events. Moreover, with user-defined state machines you can visualize any state information in the trace, from software state variables or logged hardware states, either as state transition graphs or shown on a time line, much like in a logic analyzer.Tracealyzer version 4 will be on display in Percepio’s booth at Embedded World in Nuremberg next week. It will then be generally available in early March for Keil RTX5, FreeRTOS and Amazon FreeRTOS. Support for other RTOSs will be added during the first half of 2018.In the UK, Tracealyzer is available from high reliability and safety-critical tools specialist, Phaedrus Systems.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous Red Pitaya: ‘Swiss Army PenKnife for engineers’ company to exhibit at embedded worldNext Microsemi: third-party IP offerings for PolarFire FPGAs at embedded worldlast_img read more

first_imgVANCOUVER — A rare encounter with several juvenile bluntnose sixgill sharks in waters off Vancouver implies the population may be larger than previously thought, says a marine biologist.Chris Harvey-Clark of Dalhousie University was part of a team of researchers who used a small submarine to explore the waters about a kilometre off the coast and about 100 metres below the surface.He said they were surprised to see three juvenile sixgills, in part because the population was thought to have been reduced significantly by an experimental fishery that operated in the 1990s.“Over all the years I’ve been doing this, since the 1970s, I’ve only seen maybe two or three juveniles. I think that’s what made the experience off downtown Vancouver so amazing,” he said in an interview.“In thousands of dives I’ve done, I’ve only seen two or three juvenile sixgills. And all of a sudden, bang, in a very short period of time, you see three. To me, that was the dramatic moment that this sub dive led to.”Harvey-Clark, who is also a veterinarian, wrote about the September 2017 discovery in a paper published last month in Sea Technology.He said it’s also unusual to see juvenile sixgills, which are about one to two metres long, because the cannibalistic nature of sharks means that the younger, smaller animals are often forced to hide in deeper waters.“Juveniles of this species are rarely found at that size. It’s a highly cannibalistic species. If a big one finds a little one, they just eat it,” Harvey-Clark said.“These juveniles, almost neonatal sharks, are probably using depth as a way to segregate from other adults of their species who would eat them if they could find them.”The slow-growing, but long-lived species of shark is typically found in waters up to 2,000 metres deep and grows to five or six metres.The researchers put out bait of oily fish but the sharks also appeared to be very attracted to the metal parts of the sub. Because they’re a deep-sea shark, they detect prey based on microvolt amounts of current the bottom fish are putting out, he explained.He said it was also interesting to see that there was a lot of food for sixgills at a depth of only 100 metres.“There was lots of dogfish, lots of ratfish, tons and tons of squid species that we don’t really see much of in shallow water in that part of Vancouver,” he said.“The whole thing was illuminating about the whole life that goes on beneath the surface right off a densely populated city centre. People swimming off the beaches of Vancouver would never imagine the sharks out there.”But he doesn’t think swimmers should be too nervous about the creatures taking a bite out of them.“You don’t want to ever say that about something that gets this big. These sharks get to be a huge size. They eat everything. They have a giant mouth and saw teeth,” he added.“But there have been many, many diver encounters with this species and nobody’s ever really had an aggressive encounter with a sixgill.”He said they’re a slow-moving, relatively sedentary bottom-feeding species, and their favourite food is stuff that’s already dead.“If you want to see a sixgill really get active, some salmon offal on the bottom … That’s really what they’re after.”Laura Kane, The Canadian Presslast_img read more
