Killing of DSP Ayub Pandith shows Islamic radicalisation is now firmly rooted in Kashmir

In the event of the death of Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mohammed Ayub Pandith, following the assassination of Lt Ummer Fayaz, for the murder of six police officers of the J & K Police - including SHO police station and mutilation - corpses Leave room for doubt that Islamic radicalization has taken root in Kashmir. It is not that the signs are new but have been brushed beneath the table to politicize the small bank to vote, and will probably continue to happen without them being aware of the detrimental effect on the rest of India. That life security personnel may be the cheapest in India, regardless of bureaucratic policy is well known. There is not much difference between Pakistan and the Islamist terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir who harmonize with the call of the Islamic State to carry out the most violent acts during the holy month of Ramadan, supposedly. While there is recognition in some sectors, now that Kashmiriyat is dead, political parties have encouraged mainly by the same design, while Wahhabism took road in the Kashmir valley. The number of mosques controlled by Wahhabis, including Ahle Hadith, has increased over the past decade from 1000 to 2,000 mosques with the majority of young people who chose them as traditional Sufi shrines in Kashmir. The influence of the Wahhabis has also changed the nature of the insurgency in Kashmir in the pursuit of Kashmir freedom, history has changed with the terrorists who are fighting for the cause of Islam.

But there are two obvious gaps in this discussion. The most important is the role of the clergy in the valley, especially in Wahhabi-controlled mosques, including Ahle Hadith. This is where young people are constantly encouraged, especially during Friday prayers.

Scientists solve centuries-old mystery of “bright nights”

Scientists solve centuries-old mystery of “bright nights”

Scientists have solved a centuries-old mystery of “bright nights” – an unusual brightness appears in the sky after dark and allows observers to see distant mountains, read a newspaper or check their clock.

Researchers suggest that when the waves in the upper atmosphere converge at specific places on Earth, which amplifies the natural light of the air, a weak light in the night sky that often appears in green due to the activities of the oxygen atoms in The upper atmosphere.

Normally, people do not notice the air of light, but nights of light can be visible to the naked eye, producing brightness without detailed explanation of historical observations.

Historical events and bright nights centuries ago. European journals and scientific literature also focused observations of these events in 1783, 1908 and 1916.

“Bright Nights exist, and are part of the variability of light wind that can be seen with satellite instruments,” said Gordon Shepherd, a hydrometer at York University in Toronto, Canada.

“The historical record is so consistent, dating back over centuries, the descriptions are very similar,” said Pastor, lead author of the study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Modern observations of bright nights on Earth are almost nonexistent light pollution. Even dedicated researchers have never seen a real bright night.

However, even before the advent of artificial lighting, bright nights were rare and very localized.

The researchers were able to see bright night events reflected in the wind data analysis Imaging Wind Interferometer (WINDII), an ancient instrument carrying NASA’s upper atmosphere research satellite (1991-2005).

They looked at mechanisms that increase the brightness of visible levels in specific places.

The air comes from the emission of light of different colors of light from chemical reactions in the upper regions of the atmosphere. The green part of the air of light occurs when sunlight divides molecular oxygen into individual oxygen atoms.

When atoms recombine, they eliminate the excess energy in the form of photons in the green part of the spectrum of visible light, giving the sky a greenish tint.

To find the factors that cause peaks in the air light and create bright nights, researchers observed for two years WINDII data from unusual air thrust profiles.

We identified 11 events in which WINDII detected an increase in air levels that would be visible to the human eye, which are described in detail in the study.

Finally, the researchers matched the event with the zoned waves, large waves in the upper atmosphere around the world and are affected by the weather.

Indian students build world’s lightest satellite

CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu an 18-year-old student with his young teammates made history by building the world’s lightest satellites, which weighs approximately 64 grams. Kalamsat call, the 3D satellite printed arrived in the area on Thursday.

Dr. Srimathy Kesan, director of the mission and the founder and CEO of Space Children, said: “The whole mission was to make machinery space cost-effective.

The idea was to see how satellite reacts in space, and if it reacts efficiently, even larger cubes can be developed using this material and the cost will be reduced to phenomenal mode. ”

Taking the humble path Kesan said that we worked for three and a half months of this project. Of 57 proposals, ours was the only meeting before a cube converts satellite.

“In 2015, we launched the satellite balloon (as it is called), which has created ripples due to its high cost and we have worked to build a profitable satellite,” he added.

‘Cubes in Space’, an annual international competition held by the Space Grant Consortium Colorado, DOODLE Learning Ink and NASA was a challenge that we have to establish a pilot proposal in a four-centimeter cube.

It is, fortunately, we have been investigating how to reduce the size and weight of a satellite at that time. We signed up for the competition and were selected, “said one of the teammates.

Speaking to reporters, Rifath Shaarook, the young scientist said: “I am very pleased to have launched the lighter satellite and I am proud to be part of this team.” For its part, the Tamil Nadu Assembly today congratulated the young scientists of their mission successfully.

Rifath Shaarook (Senior Scientist), Vinay S Bharadwaj (Structural Engineer), Yagna Sai (CTO), Tanishq Dwivedi (Flight Engineer), Mohammad Abdul Kashif (Senior Engineer) and Gopinath (Biologist) are team members behind The construction of the lighter satellite.

Edmonton Journal Homepage NEWSOPINIONSPORTSBUSINESSARTSLIFECAREERSOBITSCLASSIFIEDSDRIVING SIGN INSUBSCRIBE Matthew Fisher: Confronting compassion fatigue in South Sudan as millions flee the country

PURE, South Sudan – Kalashnikov rifles in hand, three soldiers from the Liberation Army of Southern Sudan have languished in the shade of a tree in this sleepy little village near the border with Uganda, relieved to be away from one of the conflicts More bloody and lesser known continent where there are too many of them.

Gradually, as the soldiers rested a slow drip of refugee refugees in Uganda, they descended on a dusty dirt road and around a frayed rope attached to a tree that served as an unofficial border.

“We are afraid, especially at night,” said Marguerite Kuyunge shortly after crossing Uganda after a dangerous one-week trip with her seven-year-old son and four-year-old daughter.

“When you see the danger, try moving forward rather than letting you find it,” said the 27-year-old woman.

In telling a repeated story in southern Sudan and Uganda, Kuyunge said her husband had been captured by one of the factions – he did not know what – and that there was no information on what had happened since then.
It was a difficult journey to get to Uganda, where “we would see the bodies and try to hide it,” he said.

“Rebel soldiers found us and told us to move on. We used small trails in the bush, so they do not know where we were.”

Since last August, about 1.8 million southern Sudanese have fled abroad. More than half of them ended up in Uganda.

Many numbers are also reported in Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

More than 2 million southern Sudanese are internally displaced, ie forced to leave their homes and still in the interior of the country, living in camps or trying to defend themselves.

Many women arriving in Uganda have been victims of sexual violence and other forms of abuse and intimidation in southern Sudan.

According to the UN, about two million people who are executed in southern Sudan or temporarily settled in neighboring countries are children, many of whom are orphans.

It is not surprising that the UN had said earlier this year that the civil war in southern Sudan created the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world.

A UN spokesman in South Sudan estimates that as many as 50,000 southern Sudanese have died in tribal struggles between President Salva Kiir Dinka and his former assistant Nuer Riek Machar who started 100 kilometers pure north of the capital, Juba, there two Years and spread rapidly throughout the country despite a peace agreement between the parties to the conflict.

As often happens in Africa, hunger followed the war. Part of the blame was a drought. However, another factor was that people were too scared to plant or harvest their crops because both sides often did not give up food aid.

Despite its own poverty, Uganda has continued to accommodate everyone in southern Sudan, than on the border.

This remarkable display of good will in an impoverished country with many problems of its own stands contrasts with the way European countries as well as Canada and the United States have limited the number of refugees who have withdrawn from the Middle East and Africa.

Canada’s Minister for International Development Marie-Claude Bibeau announced an additional contribution of $ 86 million during a visit to South Sudan this week. This is in addition to the $ 36.9 million that Canada has given south Sudan in March.

“We manage, but there is a serious shortage of funds,” said Robert Baryamwesiga, Bidi Bidi’s commander or mayor, whose population has gone from zero to 272 in August 000 today, making it the largest refugee camp of the world.

“We have about 15 percent of the funds we need.

This is a serious lacuna that can take us beyond the point of rupture, “said the lawyer and sociologist. This could force the government to review its generosity at some point. “

Chants against Israeli occupation in Palestine, Saudi and US as Iran marks Al Quds Day

Chants against Israeli occupation in Palestine, Saudi and US as Iran marks Al Quds Day

The chants against the Saudi royal family and the Islamic State group mixed with traditional shouts of “Death to Israel” and “Death to the United States” at the Jerusalem Day rally through Iran on Friday.

The annual show of solidarity with the Palestinians, which sees hundreds of thousands of people visit the streets, was launched by the leader of the Iranian revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and is now marked by its allies throughout the Middle East.

The commemoration of this year takes place amid a battle intensified by the influence in the region between Shiite Iran and Sunni rival Saudi Arabia, who have had diplomatic relations since January last year.

“Death to the House of Saud and Daesh (IS),” he told the protesters. “Death to the United States”, “Death to Israel”, “Death to Great Britain”.

Iran has been heavily involved in the war against it in Iraq and Syria, where it has trained and advised militias to fight jihadists.

On Sunday, Iran fired six missiles of 750 kilometers (470 miles) on an SI base in eastern Syria, days after the jihadist group called for bombings and gunfire in Tehran.

On Friday, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards showed the same Zolfaghar missiles used in the strike at Valiasr Square, in the heart of the capital, next to a Qadr 2000 mile (1250 miles) missile.

Iran’s ballistic missile program has been a constant concern in Washington and the target of repeated US sanctions.

– Countdown to the Destruction of Israel –

The Tehran metro was working for free, taking them to Tehran University’s Iranians, where the main weekly Muslim prayers were held.

Some protesters burned Israeli and American flags.

Others carried a blasphemous coffin with an image of US President Donald Trump and the motto: “Death to America, Death to the House of Saud.”

In a speech to the crowd in the capital, MP Ali Larijani, called Israel “the mother of terrorism.”

“The displacement of millions of Muslims by the Zionist regime is unprecedented in the history of all terrorist groups,” he said.

President Hassan Rouhani, who joined the march in Tehran, reached a new draft law on sanctions against Iran approved by the United States Senate.

“This year Jerusalem Day is different both by terrorists supported Israel in the region … and because of America, which has always thought to violate the rights of (Iran),” he told state television.

“With the anti-Iranian bills presented to the House of Representatives and the United States Senate, the Iranian nation means to America through the meeting that the government will respond with determination and continue on the path it has chosen.”

Last week, the Senate heavily supported harsh sanctions against Iran over its alleged “permanent support of terrorism.” The bill has been sent to the House for approval.

The Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami leader of the prayer said that the law violates the July 2015 agreement between Iran and the major powers, under which it was agreed to lift sanctions in exchange for a reduction in Iran’s nuclear activities.

“This bill is certainly a violation of the body and mind of the nuclear issue and people expect a serious response to such violations,” he said.

“Ninety-eighteen of 100 US senators voted in favor of this anti-Iranian bill … which shows there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans and they all seek enmity with the Islamic (Iran) system.”

Colombia conflict: ELN rebels free Dutch journalists

Two Dutch journalists kidnapped last week by rebels in Colombia have been released after a day of conflicting reports of their fate.

Derk Bolt and Eugenio Follender were handed over to a delegation from the Office of the Colombian Ombudsman, the agency has been confirmed by a tweet.

Rebels from the National Liberation Army (ELN) said they had released them on Friday, but then retracted the announcement.

Concerns have been raised for peace talks between the rebels and the government.

ELN fighters were heavily armed
However, the Dutch couple were finally transferred to a rural area of the Catatumbo region, near the border with Venezuela.

Dutch Chancellor Bert Koenders welcomed the publication of “very good news”.

Pictures published by the Office of the Ombudsman show that the Dutch are accompanied by the armed and masked combatants of the ELN before being transferred to his delegation.

The Colombian Ombudsman or Colombian Ombudsman is an agency of the national government that protects civil and human rights.

“It was quite heavy”
Television journalist Bolt, 62, and Follender, 58, had started looking for the mother of a Colombian boy adopted in the Netherlands when they were taken.

In an interview by Dutch journalist Edwin Koopman, Bolt told Colombian broadcaster Caracol Radio that the rebels had given him a “very long” document containing points about the peace talks.

People protest against the kidnapping of Dutch journalists Derk Johannes studs and Eugenio Ernest Marie in Bogotá, Colombia.

The protests took place in Colombia this week to demand the release of two Dutch journalists
He and Follender, he said, separate both small cuts and bushes.

They thought they had been stolen during the kidnapping, he said. They were hidden in homes, but one day they were forced to walk for 14 hours to escape the army.

But the rebels were respectful and never threatened with death, he told the radio.

“It was pretty heavy,” he said, “but the people who accompanied us were pretty nice.”

“While our families at home feared for us, we were sitting here drinking coffee with the guerrillas.”

Last year, the ELN kidnapped a Spanish journalist and several Colombians in the same region. All were released later.

The ELN is the second Colombian FARC guerrilla left behind.

FARC signed a peace agreement with the government last November and are preparing to enter civilian life, but that the ELN has initiated peace talks in February this year.

At women-only salon in Brooklyn, Muslim-Americans prepare for Eid

Nevien Shehadeh, 19, was one of many Muslim women who chose Le’Jemalik’s living room and shop in the Brooklyn neighborhood of New York to prepare for the Eid al-Fitr party.

The beauty salon, designed by owner Huda Quhshi to deal with mostly Muslim women, opened in January in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn.

“I actually started wearing the hijab a year ago,” said Shehadeh, a student in math and economics at Fordham University in New York.

“I always wanted to, but I was not ready. Actually, it was during Ramadan last year, a week before Eid has had that feeling of wearing the hijab.”

Shehadeh, a Palestinian-American, went with her two sisters, Shireen, 26 and Nisrien, 18, and her aunt, Najah, 37.

They remembered meeting Quhshi two years ago when the beauty contractor was hired to do the make-up at a family wedding.

Quhshi, 37, said that as Yemen and American women whose standards often prevented from cultural workplace, did not believe that creating a space where conservative Muslim women could receive beauty services a comfortable environment possible .

Between Wednesday and Friday Quhshi reported receiving 48 clients from Eid services.

“Most halls are not all women,” said Shehadeh, who plans to hold the Eid on Sunday at a beach in Staten Island with her family marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. “We feel at ease. We are not paranoid.

About 3.3 million Muslims live in the United States, according to data from the Pew Research Center, many celebrate Eid, one of the two most important festivals of the Islamic calendar.

“The beginning of Ramadan was very quiet, it was so slow, it was to the point that I thought about Ramadan,” Quhshi said.

“Then, suddenly, we had so many reservations that we have had to reject people.”

When the women arrive in the living room, they are invited to sit on a circular ivory sofa, decorated with jewels.

The Indian letter toilet changes the name of the village after Trump
The doors of the living room lead to a private area where guests pamper their guests in peach and white chairs.

Some are cut and colored. Others have done for their composition or elegant hijab Quhshi and his staff of six. A pedicure station functions as a haven of henna.

Shehadeh admired her haircut and died in the ornate mirror.

“We’re here to be pampered for the holidays,” Shehadeh said. “Even if we do not show our hair, it’s good for him to do it for himself.”

Why I’m never signing up for Amazon Prime

Why I’m never signing up for Amazon Prime

Why I’m never signing up for Amazon Prime

This is the first day of 2017, which is the Amazonian annual summer bonus designed to attract some first subscription subscription response.

Thousands of prices are reduced, as if they were punished for their insolence and replaced by the more affordable marginal cost. Shipping is free, unrestricted, same day in many places.

This is the open season of buffet in consumer goods, and Amazon Prime this post hung before our greedy faces. I just do not take the bait, not now and probably not always.

This is not to denigrate those who subscribe to Amazon Prime, because I certainly recognize the wide range of benefits offered by convenience, effortlessly replenishing basic needs in a hurry to all the benefits of streaming movies and music That Amazon continues to develop.

This is a valuable service that returns more value than the annual cost of $ 99, I do not disagree at all. But the first one has many side effects as well, and these are the things I’d like to avoid.

This is both a personal and philosophical question, and I will try to separate the different parts of my constant anti-Semitism into the themes:

Transactions must be addressed first. Offers suck. Discount products are bad for me as a consumer as they push me to buy things that do not need to be frugal and charge the reduction of the inherent “backup” mass.

So I ended up with a collection of completely unused white suits that seemed too cheap to pass up. Discounts are also bad for the provider for the obvious reason that they reduce their income.

There is, of course, the ideal scenario where finding a supplier to free space reduces the prices of seasonal products is going to be replaced at the same time that I need something like this and a meter – a win for both parties.

But browsing through Amazon even without hyperactivity Bonus Day and you will see that the deals are the norm and not the exception. We expect discounts on everything.

Whenever possible, I think we should pay the full price for the things we want. If we want to see more of the headphones like BeoPlay H6, more bags like Backpack Design Pico and phones like the Galaxy S8, the strongest signal we can give suppliers is to buy the full price.

If not, maybe we just bought what was for sale, rather than what we expected in terms of product quality.

Regardless of whether the producer is a local craftsman or a global chaebol such as Samsung, the best way to exert some influence in the management and design of consumer goods is with their expenses. (This is an ideal that I admit I’m not always up to).

Always insisting on the subject of Amazon offers, I think they have a devastating effect on the local slots they offer. The locksmith my local main street has no chance to compete with Amazon price, derived from economies of scale, and if it were not for key repair and duplication service, it would probably be out of business.

During the last decade, I witnessed the closure of most of my nearby independent bookstores, either replaced by real estate agents, pizza chains or by retailer Waterstones book that does not have the charm of the old but at least a bit of The scale of the Amazon.

I do not want to be accused simply amazing and I know that Walmart has done more harm than American trade, but at some point, we must consider our own agency in the evolution towards overwhelming and monolithic stores for everything.
