BSP leader shot dead outside Allahabad University; supporters torch bus, attack hospital

A leader of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) was shot dead at a shelter near Allahabad University in Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh Monday night, police said Tuesday.

Energetic BSP activists staged a violent protest and set fire to a bus that demanded the authors’ premature arrest. Strong police forces were rushed near Indian Press Crossing to control the situation.

Preliminary investigations revealed that Rajesh Yadav had gone to meet someone at the Tara Chand Hostel with his friend, Dr. Mukul Singh, where he had an altercation with some people.

Dr. Singh told police that some people attacked the BSP chief and shot him around 2:30.

Yadav suffered a gunshot wound in the stomach and was transported to a private hospital by Dr. Singh where he died during his treatment.

Allahabad police chief Siddarth Shankar Meena said the empty cartridges were found in the Yadav vehicle.
According to media reports, on Tuesday two buses were set on fire and a hospital was reportedly attacked by BSP workers.

Police investigate the incident and an FIR will be filed after receiving a complaint, authorities said.

Originally from the village of Bhadohi in Duguna, Yadav challenged the assembly elections of Uttar Pradesh in 2017 on a BSP ticket.

Reports indicated that Yadav lived with his family in Haritkunj apartment near Chandrashekhar Azad Park.

Jupiter Is the Oldest Planet in the Solar System, New Evidence Shows

Jupiter – the largest planet in our solar system – is also the oldest, according to scientists who have found that the gas giant was formed four million years after the solar formation.

Knowing the age of Jupiter is essential for understanding how the solar system became its current architecture. Although the models predict that Jupiter was formed relatively early, so far, its formation had not been closed.

“We did not get to test Jupiter (unlike other bodies like Earth, Mars, Moon and Asteroids),” said Thomas Kruijer, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in the US.

“In our study, we used the isotopic signatures of meteorites (derived from asteroids) to infer the age of Jupiter,” said Kruijer, lead author of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Looking for isotopes of tungsten and molybdenum in iron meteorites, scientists have found that meteorites consist of two genetically distinct nebulous tanks that coexisted but remained separated between one million and three to four million years after the formation of the solar system.

In addition, the probe forces Juno SEENASA ‘Claim’ on Jupiter after revealing an astounding detail

“The most plausible mechanism for efficient separation is the formation of Jupiter, opening a space in the disk and preventing the exchange of materials between the two tanks,” said Kruijer.

“Jupiter is the oldest planet in the solar system, and its solid core formed well before the gas in the solar nebula dissipates, according to the base accumulation model for the formation of the giant planet” has, he said.

Jupiter is the most massive planet in the solar system and its presence has had a huge effect on the dynamics of solar disk acceleration.
Scientists have demonstrated, through isotopic analysis of meteorites, the solid nucleus of Jupiter was formed only about a million years after the beginning of the history of the solar system, making it the oldest planet.

Thanks to its rapid formation, Jupiter acts as an effective barrier against the inward transport of the material through the disk, which could explain why our solar system lacks super-Earths (an extrasolar planet with a mass greater than Earth ).

The team found that the Jupiter nucleus has increased about 20 times the Earth’s mass in a million years, followed by a more prolonged growth to 50 times the Earth’s mass until at least 3-4 million years after formation Solar system.

Early theories propose that gaseous giant planets such as Jupiter and Saturn imply high growth solid nuclei of about 10 to 20 times the Earth’s mass, followed by the accumulation of gas in these nuclei.

So the bottom line is that gas-generating nuclei must be formed before the dissipation of the solar nebula – the circum-gaseous disk surrounding the young sun – that probably occurred between 1 million years and 10 million years after Formation of the solar system.

“We are able to get away with Jupiter more accurately within a million years using isotope signatures of meteorites,” the researchers said.

Although this rapid acceleration of the cores was modeled, it was not possible to leave its formation.

“Our measurements show that the growth of Jupiter can be dated with time of genetic formation and meteorites separately,” said Kruijer.

Two-Headed Porpoise Found For First Time

Two-Headed Porpoise Found For First Time

The breeding male newborn porpoises were caught as bycatch and dumped into the North Sea by Dutch fishermen fearing it is illegal to keep them.

The first known case of a two-headed porpoise was documented last month when Dutch fishermen in the North Sea accidentally caught an abnormal creature as incidental catch in a raid nets.

Fearing that it is illegal to keep the marine mammal dead, they threw it into the ocean, but not before taking pictures of their strange research and alert researchers.

While the Siamese twin case studies have been studied in humans, reptiles and companion animals, they are rarely seen in wild mammals. In fact, prior to this finding, only nine cases of cetaceans in both directions of any type have been documented reliably.
A recent study published by the Journal of the Museum of Natural History in Rotterdam contextualizes the scarcity of discoveries.

“Binocular descriptions of whales and dolphins are extremely rare,” said Erwin Kompanje, the National Museum of History in Rotterdam, in his study. “We knew nine [other] published cases.”

Although researchers have lamented not being able to physically examine the dolphin they could gather data on the fisherman’s photos.

Scientists definitely know that the dolphin was both a newborn and a man.

The dorsal fins did not rise, the grandstands (or top of the head) still contain the hair and still contains an umbilical opening, indicating that the dolphin died shortly after birth. The story had not been rigid, necessary development porpoises have to swim.

On average, porpoises produce offspring every one or two years, and even if twins are extremely rare. Nearly 700,000 Marsopas are found worldwide, with 345,000 residents in the North Sea, but never before with two heads (until scientists can determine).

The International Union for Conservation of Nature says that bycatch is the biggest threat to porpoises. As a result, the EU has taken measures to control the impact of trawls and on populations.

It is believed that binoculars symmetrical ensemble, resulting in porpoises when two different embryos fuse or a zygote is only partially divided.

Kompanje noted in his study, however, a complete understanding of what causes twins together remains an enigma.

‘Someone Is Jumping’: After 12 Dead, London Fire Survivors Share The Nightmare

LONDON: Sajad Jamalvatan was at the cinema on Tuesday night when he called his mother in a panic. Returned soon declared himself.

“The building is on fire!” She said.

A few minutes later, the biomedical engineering student 22 years round the corner to see Grenfell Tower transforms into a hell.

“As soon as I arrived, someone pointed and said,” Someone jumps! Someone jumps! “He said Wednesday with the lingering smell of smoke in the air. In his opinion, the person jumped from the 16th or 17th floor of the 24-story tower.

This type of fall is not the type that can survive. The death toll has reached at least 12 – with dozens injured and authorities have warned that the death toll could rise.

Witnesses recalled a mother who abandoned her baby on a balcony and young children frantically knocking on windows before disappearing behind a thick layer of smoke.

“See the people dying in front of you …” he said as his voice stopped and stared at the sidewalk.

He said the shield had advanced rapidly and that the alarms were not activated.

“When I arrived, there were 10 apartments on the fire. After that, the whole building was on fire,” he said.

He snapped his fingers. “It’s like this,” he said.

Accounts such as his quickly added to suspicions that the equipment used in the 24-story building could contribute to rapid fire in an enclave of low-cost units in one of Britain’s richest areas.

The tower residents’ association had already warned that the tower was a potential fire hazard – they highlighted their concerns in a blog post last year – and there was palpable street rage that could have been done to prevent the tower fire.

Some complained that the fire alarms were not working properly. Others said that the staircase in the middle of the building was inadequate. Others have said that those who made the building did things on the cheap.

The London fire department calls the fire “unprecedented” and said an investigation was under way.

In a nearby community center, for their part, hundreds gathered in the hope of finding missing friends and relatives, including Muslim residents who had gathered for dinner during the holy month of Ramadan.

Interested people have also arrived in mass, many plastic bags that carry that collapse with food, diapers, toiletries and blankets. A man pushes a baby stroller with water, milk and baked beans cans.

Ahmed Chellat, 60, a retired community worker, was in a community center in search of his brother, wife and three children living on the 21st floor of the tower. He said he talked to his brother’s wife at 1:45 and told him to stay.
When he asked why they were not going to run out of the building, he said: “We are told to stay in – they ask us to cover the doors with towels. But the fire happens a lot.” , He recalled.

When he remembered 30 minutes later, “the last thing he said was”. The smoke was heavy. ”

“If emergency services tell them to stay indoors, it means they have not just come in. Are they big problems,” he said.

Many residents said that the building has been recently renovated and equipped with plastic panels, which have helped the fire spread quickly. “If you were a brick, you would not have set the fire on so fast,” Chellat said.

In such fires elsewhere, the flammable lining was blamed for several fires Highlands fast – including several plaques among the many skyscrapers of Dubai.

Just before the New Year celebration in the 2016 welcome, a fire swept through the 63-storey hotel in Dubai as millions watched the television coverage of the festivities near Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. A handful of people were injured in the fire.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Appears Before Panel Investigating Family Wealth

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Appears Before Panel Investigating Family Wealth

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif appeared before a committee to investigate his family’s wealth on Thursday, the first time a Pakistani prime minister was grilled by a research agency.

Sharif scrutiny rocked Pakistan, but the investigation – ordered by the Supreme Court – is increasingly politicized. Sharif arrived at the Joint Research Team (JIT) in Islamabad wearing traditional shalwar kameez robe and loose pants, but did not speak to the media.

It was not clear how lengthy the hearing, which was to begin at 11am (0600 GMT).

The prime minister and his sons deny the allegations.

The Supreme Court ruled in April that there was insufficient evidence to remove Sharif from the office of opposition corruption allegations, but ordered further investigations.

The Supreme Court agreed last year to investigate the Sharif family’s marine wealth after the opposition threatened to protest after the leak of “Panama Documents”.

Documents published by the law firm of Panama-based firm Mossack Fonseca appear to show that Sharif’s daughter and his two foreign owned son owned companies located in the British Virgin Islands used them to buy property in London.

Sharif, whose father was a prominent industrialist, said his family wealth was legally acquired.

The three-time prime minister, Sharif was expelled twice in the 1990s, even during a military coup in 1999. He later lived in exile, mainly in Saudi Arabia.

He returned to power in the 2013 elections.
His spokesman did not respond to requests for comments.

Pakistan has been plagued by corruption for decades, politicians who often accuse transplant rivals.

The Supreme Court has given the Committee two months to investigate the family and then give its conclusions.

The six-man group, comprised of members of civilian investigative agencies and military intelligence officers, examines three generations of Sharif family wealth.

The team accused Ministries of falsifying the old files, but Finance Minister Ishaq Dar rejected the allegations on Wednesday, adding that the claims meant the process was becoming “suspicious,” local media reported.

Sharif’s camp tried to withdraw two members of the investigation team and his party in Pakistan Muslim-Nawaz (PML-N) has expressed outrage over a fleeing photograph drawn from a sample of security cameras son of Sharif Hussain, That appears before the panel.

Opinion polls suggest Sharif’s party is likely to win the next election next year.

A senior PML-N told Reuters that the party could not call early elections if Sharif was expelled by a Supreme Court decision and would elect a new prime minister to assume until the general election.

Rodman’s gives Kim the gift of Trump

Dennis Rodman has sent a message from President Donald Trump in North Korea.

On Thursday, the former NBA player gave the country’s Sports Minister a copy of Trump’s book titled “The Art of Boxing”, a gift for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

It was not signed by Mr. Trump, who was the boss of M. Rodman for two seasons of the reality show “Celebrity Apprentice”. M. Rodman said his visit had nothing to do with the White House.

Some other highlights of what has so far been a small trip to Pyongyang often extravagant celebrity, who visited the North four times before,

While his previous visits in 2013 and 2014 have often sparked controversy, M. Rodman said this week that he is there just to meet old friends and have a good time.

M. Rodman also met with the North Korean Olympic athletes, including the judo gold medal Un Kum-ae.

“All of you should be proud of all of you, because, you know, a lot of people do not give him the confidence, because it’s a small country and not a lot of North Korea can not compete in the world,” Rodman has said.

“An old friend”

M. Rodman, one of the few Westerners to have personally met Kim Jong Un, was criticized for an earlier trip when he sang “Happy Birthday” to M. Kim and suggested that an American missionary was to blame for his imprisonment in North Korea , The comments for which he later apologized.

But the Sports Minister said that M. Rodman lives with affection in Pyongyang.

“In the past, our respected supreme leader met many times and used his valuable time to see the basketball game with players he brought here. In the past, we met you, so our people all know well,” Said M. Kim Il Guk M. Rodman. “And we think you’re an old friend.”

There is no role in the student’s release

The arrival of M. Rodman Tuesday came hours after the North has decided to release Otto Warmbier, a university student from the United States who had been imprisoned for 15 years with hard work trying to steal a propaganda banner.

M. Warmbier, who had been confined for 17 months, reportedly fell into a coma shortly after his training and Pyongyang issued a statement Thursday saying he had decided to let him go for “humanitarian reasons.”

Officials from Washington and Pyongyang stated that M. Rodman played no part in the liberation. Discussions on the subject of M. Warmbier were under way long before his visit.

Warmbier, a student at the University of Virginia for 25 years, was convicted in a one-hour trial in North Korea’s Supreme Court in March 2016. It took 15 years in prison with hard work for subversion after tears Of tears had attempted to steal the banner of propaganda.

The publication report of M. Warmbier the official official of the North Korean agency did not mention the health of M. Warmbier.

Although US citizens are not barred from visiting North Korea, the State Department strongly recommends it.

Two Slain Nationals’ ‘Preaching’ Allegation will be Probed, Says China

Beijing: China will maintain coabduction ntrol of the and death of its two citizens by militants in Pakistan’s ISIS and cooperate to investigate their alleged illegal “preaching” activities in the Muslim nation, the Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

The department’s response came after Chinese state media have accused Christian groups in South Korea of ​​converting young Chinese and sending them to proselytize in Muslim countries.

Earlier, Pakistan had said that the two Chinese citizens killed by ISIS were involved in “preaching” in the country.

In a statement Tuesday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said China had received no official confirmation of Pakistan’s death and will do its utmost to ensure that the two died soon possible, Lu said.

According to Pakistan reports, the two were killed by an Islamic state group after being kidnapped by armed police dressed in Quetta last month.

The Islamic State terrorist group said it had killed two Chinese hostages, including one woman, were kidnapped by gunmen in the province of Baluchistan.

China firmly opposes all types of terrorism and extreme violence vis-a-vis the civilian population and supports Pakistan’s efforts to fight terrorism and internal security, he said, adding that China would work with the international community to combat The terrorism.

China appreciates Pakistan’s efforts to rescue the two hostages and the commitment to better protect Chinese citizens and institutions in Pakistan, Lu said.

China has always asked its citizens to comply with local laws and regulations, local customs respect and awareness of risks abroad, he said.

Lu said China will cooperate with the investigation in Pakistan of illegal preaching activities allegedly undertaken by its two nationals.

Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar today called on the department to look, to regulate and expedite the visa process for Chinese nationals.

Nisar said that all Pakistani missions were needed to examine visa applications and must obtain all the necessary details before exercising their authority to issue visas to foreigners.

Pakistan has fought against the Islamist and nationalist insurgency in Baluchistan since 2004, with hundreds of soldiers and militants killed in the fighting.

ISIS has made inroads into Pakistan with the help of its links with local militant groups such as Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Jamaat-ul-Ahrar. However, the government has greatly minimized the presence of the feared terrorist organization.

A bomb attack by Al Shabaab militants at two neighboring restaurants in the Somali capital, Mogadishu killed 18 people. Further information revealed that gunmen were killed by security forces.

The attack began around 8 pm Wednesday night with a suicide bombing at the restaurant and club at Trata Post, after which gunmen stormed the nearby Pizza House restaurant. Both sites are popular with wealthy, young and diaspora Somalis and were busy Wednesday with clients who have broken their Ramadan fast.

“The operation is over and the armed men were killed by security forces,” said Mohamed Ahmed Arab, a spokesman for the Somali Security Ministry.

“They attacked places of business and killed innocent civilians, 18 civilians were killed, including one Syrian citizen, and more than 10 were injured,” he said.
According to statements, gunmen spent the night traveling through the restaurant and killed those they found trapped before the security forces are being produced.

Gunmen had at least 20 people held hostage in a restaurant, police said.

“Fighter jets are still inside Pizza House and they welcome more than 20. We do not know how many are alive or dead,” Ibrahim Hussein, a police chief, told Reuters.

On Wednesday, police said nine people, mostly women who were members of the hotel, were killed in the attack. Security officials said a suicide bomber had driven a car laden with explosives into the hotel entrance before gunmen did not take the restaurant assault.

“A suspect Aboriginal car is parked in front of Pizza House. This and snipers makes it difficult for security forces to move inside,” said Hussein.

Other officials said the victims inside the hotel were safely evacuated, but there are likely to be lower casualties. Al-Shabaab claims the attack; The group carried out a campaign of suicide bombings, in order to overthrow the Somali government and impose a strict interpretation of Islam.

“A mujahid (wrestler) with his car bomb was martyred after entering the elegant hotel, a nightclub. The operation continues,” Abdiasis Abu Musab, a spokesman for the group told Reuters.

Since it lost large swathes of territory to maintain AU peacekeeping forces supporting the government, the group has frequently launched incursions and deadly attacks in Mogadishu and other areas controlled by the federal government.

The East African country has been affected by armed conflict since 1991, when clan-based clan war overthrew dictator Siad Barre and then turned to one another.
