Acute shortage of public transport in Delhi Only 5554 buses plying against

first_imgNEW DELHI: Delhi is facing an acute shortage of public transport as only 5,554 buses against the required number of 11,000 vehicles are plying in the national capital. As per the directions of the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court, the total requirement of bus fleet in the city was 11,000 but presently only 5,554 CNG -run buses were being operated in Delhi.The Delhi government claimed that 1275 low floor AC buses, 2,506 low floor non-Ac buses and 1,672 orange colour standard low floor buses were being operated under the cluster scheme, which was introduced in 2011 to replace the erstwhile blue line buses, said a senior Transport official.

The buses will start coming this month and 3000 buses would arrive in city by 10-12 months. All these buses will have CCTV installed in them. But in last four years, no any bus has been added to city bus fleets. Reacting on Delhi public Transport, Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari said that the transportation facility of Delhi has been failed completely as the numbers of DTC buses have been halved. “Looking at the population of Delhi, there should be 20,000 buses, but Delhi government has shown a negative approach towards it, rather than increasing the number of buses. In last 54 months, Kejriwal has spent his time in allegations rather than development of Delhi,” said Tiwari.

Farmers to receive compensation as part of historic NAFTA revamp

first_imgOTTAWA – Canada gave up some access to its dairy, egg and poultry industries but will keep its agricultural supply management system and avoid punishing auto tariffs under the new North American trade deal.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hailed the landmark agreement as a win for everyone and U.S. President Donald Trump did a victory lap at the White House as industries across Canada took stock of the new era in continental trade.“Today we are securing a higher standard of living far into the future for the people of Canada,” Trudeau said during a news conference Monday in Ottawa.The revamped NAFTA deal — dubbed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA — was almost 14 months in the making and has 32 chapters, 11 annexes and 12 side letters. One letter promises Canada will be exempt from any future U.S. tariffs imposed on automobiles and auto parts as a matter of national security.The deal does not, however, address the removal of the steel and aluminum tariffs Trump slapped on Canada last spring or the softwood lumber tariffs imposed in 2017. U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Monday there is no timeline for removing those tariffs.Trump said the tariffs he has imposed — or threatened to levy — may be a key reason he landed an agreement after months of agonizing talks. “Without tariffs, we wouldn’t be talking about a deal.”The agreement includes new rules for the auto sector, such as requiring 40 per cent of car parts be made by workers paid at least $16 an hour, a labour rule Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said was unique in trade agreements and a very progressive way to protect jobs for higher-wage workers.Freeland highlighted Canada’s success in maintaining the dispute-resolution process that sends trade quarrels between countries to an independent binational panel. Keeping that provision, previously known as chapter 19 under NAFTA, was one of Canada’s lines in the sand, though the U.S. initially wanted to eliminate it.The B.C. Lumber Trade Council said retaining the dispute mechanism was “absolutely critical.” As with the steel tariffs, the new trade deal does not undo controversial U.S.-imposed duties on Canadian softwood lumber imports.Other key aspects include lengthening the patents on biologic pharmaceuticals by two years to 10 years from eight, and increasing the amount Canadians can spend online at U.S. retailers without paying duty to $150 from $20.Derek Burleton, deputy chief economist at TD Economics, echoed the sentiment of many in expressing relief at an agreement.“The deal is far from perfect, but other, decidedly more negative potential outcomes — such as Canada’s exclusion from a revised agreement, a ‘zombie’ NAFTA, and steep tariffs on Canadian auto exports to the U.S. — have likely been avoided,” he wrote in an analysis Monday.Benoit Fontaine, the chair of Chicken Farmers of Canada, likewise expressed reassurance that “a year of uncertainty over the future of the agricultural landscape in Canada is over.”Canada increased the amount of duty-free access for U.S. farmers in all five of its supply managed sectors — dairy, eggs, chicken, hatching eggs and turkey.Fontaine says that will mean Americans can sell 12 million additional kilograms of chicken in Canada, which doesn’t make chicken farmers happy, but at lets them know what they’re dealing with now.Dairy Farmers of Canada, however, issued a terse statement saying the deal will have “a dramatic impact not only for dairy farmers but for the whole sector.”Under the USMCA Canada is offering the U.S. a 3.6 per cent share of the dairy market, which is more than the 3.25 per cent it offered under the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. Canada is also eliminating a recent pricing assessment for certain types of milk products that was a lightning rod of discontent for Trump.On Monday Trump called dairy a “deal breaker” for him in the negotiations.“Our farmers were not treated properly by Canada,” he said. “Now they’re going to be treated with respect.”Trudeau tried to placate Canadian dairy farmers by promising compensation. The prime minister said he knows there is anxiety for dairy producers but also suggested things could have been a lot worse.“We know full well the American administration targeted the complete scrapping of supply management and what we did with this agreement was to protect supply management for future generations because it is a system that works,” Trudeau said.There are no details yet on how much compensation Canada is willing to provide or what form it will take.Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer called the deal a “failure” by Trudeau to achieve anything new for Canada. Instead, he said, Canada can only brag about what it didn’t have to concede. Scheer said he would have gotten a better deal.NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said Canadians will end up paying more for things like milk and pharmaceuticals under the deal.Notably, the prime minister did not mention Trump in his opening remarks, saying only in answer to a direct question that the relationship with the president has been challenging during the course of tumultuous negotiations.Trump acknowledged relations between himself and Trudeau have been “testy” but added that was simply because of the negotiations. The only thing wrong with Trudeau is that he “loves his people,” the president said.Trump and Trudeau did speak briefly about the agreement by phone Monday. Trudeau also spoke with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.Trump has been threatening for weeks to lock Canada out of a new trade deal and proceed alone with Mexico. Just six days ago he said he didn’t think Canada was negotiating fairly. But on Monday he was all smiles, calling the deal “historic.”— With files from Mike Blanchfield, James McCarten and Kristy Kirkuplast_img read more

At least 10 trains affected

Ariyaratne said that with the 10 train engines being affected, passengers had been stranded with a shortage of trains operating during the day.Last year Sri Lanka faced a similar issue when contaminated petrol affected hundreds of vehicles on the street. Owners of all the damaged vehicles were later paid compensation by the government. (Xinhua) The contaminated diesel was pumped at fuel stations operated by the government owned Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC), Wijeyratne said.He said that some bus operators were now pumping diesel at the Indian owned Lanka Indian Oil Corporation (LIOC) fuel stations hoping that the fuel there is clean. Wijeyratne said his private bus union is to meet over the next day or two to discuss the issue and the possibility of seeking compensation from the government for the damaged buses.Meanwhile the Sri Lankan state owned railway department said at least 10 train engines had been affected so far by contaminated diesel.Sri Lanka Railways General Manager B.A.P. Ariyaratne told Xinhua that the contaminated diesel had forced some trains to stall while others were going at a very slow speed. “The buses started breaking down over the past two days. Most bus owners did not know what the issue was and so they assumed it was a normal breakdown and went and got it fixed. But we now found that more and more buses were breaking down and then it was clear that contaminated diesel was the cause,” LPBOA President Gemunu Wijeyratne told Xinhua. A local private bus union, the Private Bus Operators Association (LPBOA), said that fuel injectors in the bus engines were damaged as a result of the contaminated diesel. He said that a request has now been put forward to the CPC for fresh diesel to operate the trains. Passenger transport in Sri Lanka was hit by contaminated diesel with buses and trains breaking down, officials said on Tuesday.Private bus operators said that more than 70 passenger buses had broken down after running on the contaminated fuel. read more

The judges will decide the distribution of their start-up money on the day – which could amount to upwards of $10,000. read more

Why Women Dont Cycle

For every three men hopping on a bike, just one woman does the same, according to an analysis by BuzzFeed’s Jeremy Singer-Vine, who collected data from the three largest bike-share programs in the United States — New York, Chicago and Boston — and mapped the gender balance in each. Although slightly more women check out a bike on weekends, overall, they still make up only 24.7 percent of riders.This gender gap isn’t unique to bike-share programs or these three cities. The most recent National Household Travel Survey shows that 24 percent of bike trips in 2009 were made by women. The national data also shows that women are slightly less likely to cycle now than they were in 2001; researchers found “the prevalence of any cycling declined significantly for children (by 1.5 percent) and women (by 0.3 percent).” That needn’t be the case: In Germany, 49 percent of cyclists are women. In the Netherlands, that number is 55 percent.Readers were quick to offer explanations for the lack of female cyclers: In fact, most theories fell into one of two categories: fashion or fear.But what’s the evidence for each?For her master’s thesis in urban planning at the University of Washington, Anne Broache examined which influenced women’s decisions about cycling. In 2012, she surveyed 365 women in Seattle — where 28 percent of bike commuters are female, according to the city’s Department of Transportation — about fashion and road safety. One-third of the nondaily riders and one-fifth of daily riders reported general concerns about “grooming issues, bringing spare clothes, helmet hair, and arriving at destinations red-faced and sweaty.” But safety was “by far the leading concern for all riders” — 79 percent of the women cited “distracted driving” as the biggest barrier to them cycling.Although it didn’t ask about fashion, the 2010 Women’s Cycling Survey asked a lot more women about their cycling choices; it, too, found the No. 1 concern was “distracted driving,” which was cited by 73 percent of the 11,453 women questioned.But there’s more to personal safety than the risk of traffic accidents. As @anildash suggests (and Helen Pidd’s personal account on The Guardian’s Bike Blog illustrates), female cyclists might fear sexual assault and harassment. The Women’s Cycling Survey found that 13 percent of women said “stranger attacks” were a concern.And just as fear is a complex issue, so, too, is fashion. Lifestyle barriers affect women’s decision-making around cycling in ways more challenging than footwear or hem length. When the Bikes Belong Coalition surveyed almost 2,000 U.S. adults, they found that women were twice as likely as men to report an “inability to carry children or other passengers” as a factor that discouraged them from cycling. Convenient transport is important for moms, because they spend 3.7 minutes more per day than dads ferrying kids around.Finally, one more reason women aren’t getting on bikes can’t be captured by the fear or fashion explanations; like most lifestyle choices, cycling decisions are affected by wealth. And women earn less than men. As Clarissa Ersoz at the Bicycle Paper explains, “Even a reasonably priced bike is a significant up-front expense for disadvantaged households.” A 2001 report, “The Socioeconomics of Urban Travel,” found that households earning less than $20,000 were no more likely to use bicycles as a mode of transport than those earning $75,000 – $99,999.When it comes to the why of America’s cycling gender gap, the data suggests that fashion really isn’t front of mind for most women. Instead, road safety and practical lifestyle issues are the biggest obstacles to female riders. That makes it all the more disappointing that the recent bike-share data shows that rental systems have been unable to address those concerns.CORRECTION (June 18, 3:59 p.m.): An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that, according to “The Socioeconomics of Urban Travel,” 13.5 percent of households earning less than $20,000 used a bicycle as a mode of transport. The table in the report actually shows that 13.5 percent of all people who use a bicycle as a mode of transport live in households earning less than $20,000. read more

Michael Dyer To Enroll At Little Rock Junior College

Former Auburn and Arkansas State running back Michael Dyer has landed at a junior college near his home in Little Rock, Arkansas, but football won’t be in his immediate future.The former offensive MVP of the 2011 BCS National Championship Game has enrolled at Arkansas Baptist College, but will be working towards an associate’s degree rather than playing football for the Buffaloes.The move is the latest for Dyer, who wore out his welcome at Auburn last fall before transferring to Arkansas State this past January and quickly running amiss with authorities there as well.Arkansas Baptist College president Dr. Fitzgerald Hill, a former San Jose State head football coach, confirmed the news during an interview with a local radio station.“There have been growing pains and bad decisions,” said Dyer’s uncle, Andre Dyer. “So much attention and so many influences from so many decisions. I just want him to be the young man he was when he left Little Rock.”Dyer was an immediate sensation at Auburn during the 2010 season, rushing for 1,093 yards and five touchdowns to help the Tigers claim the national championship. That total easily eclipsed Bo Jackson’s single-season freshman record of 892 yards set in 1982.Dyer followed up that initial success up by chewing up 1,242 yards and 10 touchdowns last fall, only to be suspended indefinitely by Auburn coach Gene Chizik for violating unspecified team rules prior to the Chick-fil-A Bowl.The first-team All-SEC pick soon followed former Tigers offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn to Arkansas State, but the NCAA denied his request to be eligible right away to play for the Red Wolves.Malzahn, who had helped recruit Dyer to Auburn, later dismissed the running back from the team in late July following a traffic stop in March in which a gun and marijuana were found in his car.Dyer will be eligible for the 2013 NFL Draft, meaning it’s unlikely he’ll play collegiately for anybody else. read more

Music Review Western Stars new path for Bruce S

There are hints of Roy Orbison’s soaring vocals and Brian Wilson’s pocket symphonies, but the lyrics are pure Springsteen. Beneath the glossy sheen are the taut narratives, introspection and ambiguous moments familiar to longtime listeners. His storytelling skills are as strong as ever, just presented in a different way.He’s paying homage to an era when the single reigned, and radio airtime went a long way to determining an artist’s success or oblivion, but Springsteen is not looking for No.1 hits with easy hooks. “Western Stars” is understated, without over-the-top orchestration or hyperbole. Each song stands alone as a self-contained story; taken as a whole it’s a panorama of loneliness and heartbreak. The protagonists are mostly men, and mostly beaten down, but there are occasional whiffs of freedom, usually tied to the joys of the open road, that most enduring of American myths.It is no accident that the album opens with “Hitch Hikin’” and this straightforward image of a loner in perpetual motion: “Thumb stuck out as I go/I’m just travelin’ up the road/Maps don’t do much for me, friend/I follow the weather and the wind.” It’s a recurring image dating back to the days of Woody Guthrie.There are other fully-formed characters from Springsteen’s imagination: the failed country music songwriter, his lyrics rejected at every turn, the busted up B-movie stuntman held together by rods and pins, even a rundown hotel with an empty swimming pool with dandelions pushing up through the cracked concrete takes on a life of its own as a character in “Moonlight Motel.”But it’s not all heartbreak. There are small celebrations, too, notably in “Sleepy Joe’s Café,” where working men and women can find solace on the dance floor when weekend comes. It’s a dreamy place where Monday morning is far, far away, and Springsteen has placed it in the context of the postwar economic boom that powered America for decades: “Joe came home in ’45 and took out a G.I. loan/On a sleepy little spot an Army cook could call his own/He married May, the highway come in and they woke up to find they were sitting on top of a pretty little gold mine.”It’s a nostalgic vision, yes, but those roadhouses still exist. You just have to drive a bit.Gregory Katz, The Associated Presslast_img read more
