New Delhi: A Delhi Court Thursday reserved order on a plea by Christian Michel, alleged middleman arrested in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper case, which accused the Enforcement Directorate of politicising the case by leaking the charge sheet to the media.Special judge Arvind Kumar said the order would be pronounced on May 3 in the case after lawyers from both the sides concluded their arguments. Advocate D P Singh, appearing for the agency, told the court that there was nothing wrong if the media published or broadcast its contents as the court has already taken cognisance of the case and only the fresh accused had to be summoned.

Countering his submission, the lawyer appearing for Michel argued that there was a media trial due to the leakage of the charge sheet. The agency had on April 12 told the court that the charge sheet was a public document and there was nothing wrong if someone accessed it. In his application, Michel’s lawyer had told the court that the copy of the charge sheet was provided to the media before it was provided to the accused.

This is only to make the matter sensational and prejudice the case against my client,” he said. The court then directed the ‘ahlmad’ (court staff) to file a report containing information related to the charge sheet, including how many copies were filed by the agency. ED had on April 6 also urged the court to issue a notice to a news organisation asking it to explain how it accessed the documents, while terming the matter as “serious”.
“Given the mobilization of efforts in the past few weeks, what has happened is that the decline has been arrested – you’re getting food in, you’re getting health services, you’re getting attention,” said Margareta Wahlström, the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator as she clarified the increased UN Flash Appeal for Niger at a press conference.“We will not immediately reverse the situation but it will probably take another two months before you can say it has been stopped, or reversed,” she added.Among the important factors to watch for, she said, were the upcoming rains, which were predicted to be adequate, as well as the situation of cattle, the population’s main wealth. Many cattle were sick, did not have fodder and had been moved. Restocking cattle, feeding them and moving them back would take several months.The Government of Niger was insistent on not recreating classical dependence and so they are continuing to monitor the situation to make sure that food assistance is not continued longer than needed, she said.Saying that the crisis had worsened due to poor initial donor response, the UN yesterday raised the Flash Appeal to almost $81 million. The total is five times the original $16,191,000 sought little more than two months ago to address the then “looming food crisis” during the lean season from May to September.Ms. Wahlström said the largest portion of the new appeal – some $59 million – was for the World Food Programme (WFP), with another $10 million for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). To ensure no further deterioration, some 2.5 million people would receive food from WFP and other agencies, in addition to what the Government was already providing from its almost depleted buffer stocks.Among those most in need, 192,000 children – 32,000 severely malnourished and 160,000 moderately malnourished – would be supported, she said.In addition, since children often died from poor access to health facilities, part of the response would be devoted to make health facilities available, in addition to increasing the supply of water.
In the end, Carmelo Anthony said his heart was in New York. It didn’t hurt that $122 million was there, too.The Knicks star forward shunned the Chicago Bulls and other suitors and inked a five-year, $122-million contract to return to New York, where surely there will be pressure to perform with that kind of money going into his direct deposit.He actually took less than the max of $129 million the Knicks could have offered, to allow the team some salary cap flexibility.“I will always remember this chapter in my life. In the end, I am a New York Knick at heart,” Anthony said in the statement. “I am looking forward to continue my career in orange and blue and to work with Phil Jackson, a champion who builds championship teams. Madison Square Garden is the mecca of basketball and I am surrounded by the greatest fans in the world.”Said Jackson, the team’s president: “He did exactly what we kind of asked him to do. Give us a break in the early part of his contract so that when we have some wiggle room next year, which is hopefully big enough wiggle room, we can exploit it, provide a more competitive team for our group.”Luol Deng Bolts Cavs For Heat; He’s LeBron’s ReplacementLuol Deng surely would not like to be called LeBron James’ replacement. But, in essence, that what he signed on for when he agreed to a two-year, $20-million deal to join the Heat.Dallas, Atlanta and Phoenix had been in consideration for Deng, according to ESPN sources. He is entering his 11th NBA season, having spent almost his entire career with the Chicago Bulls, who traded him to Cleveland in January.Chris Bosh On LeBron Going To Cleveland: ‘No Hard Feelings’LeBron James’ move back to Cleveland broke of the erstwhile “Big 3” in Miami. But his decision did not move Bosh to bolt, too, despite a four-year, $88-million offer from Houston.“[There were] very enticing offers,” said Bosh, 30, who re-signed with the Heat for five years and $112 million. “There was some surprising advances made in everything, but I ultimately decided to stay in Miami. I think it was the right choice. I benefit from it, the team will benefit from it, from here. My heart was in Miami. I wanted to be there and keep my family there and build relationships and really keep building on something special.”Bosh said there were “no bitter feelings” about James leaving Miami.“We’re all making decisions to make ourselves happy and our families happy,” Bosh said . “That doesn’t take away what we’ve done together and the special bond that we created and the special bond that we have and just all the memories that we had together. That will never change. As you move forward, you appreciate those moments and keep going forward.”
Florida Marlins199771-256-327 New York Yankees1939438153-285 Last year’s Chicago Cubs were an overwhelming team, riding one of the most impressive run differentials in recent history to a world championship. But this season, the Cubs have struggled to lift themselves above .500 despite playing in a mediocre division. Chicago should watch out — if it keeps playing this poorly, the Cubs will end up undergoing one of the largest drop-offs ever suffered by a World Series winner.Teams often struggle after a championship. Even the most exceptional roster can get pushed back toward average through some combination of a World Series hangover and regression to the mean. But the Cubs’ slide is uncommon even by those standards. According to run differential, only five other champs in history have declined as much as Chicago has this year1For teams that played fewer than 162 games — including the 2017 Cubs — I pro-rated their run differentials to a 162-game schedule.: Detroit Tigers193527153-218 Of the 10 teams on the list, seven played before 1950, when baseball was a very different sport. In the current era (since 1988), the Cubs drop-off is the third worst, trailing only the 2013 Red Sox — more on them later — and the infamous fire-sale 1997 Marlins. Chicago had more room to fall than most champs — only 19 World Series winners matched the 2016 Cubs’ +252 run differential — but that just makes their current mediocrity stand out all the more starkly.Boston’s decline between 2013 and 2014 provides the best recent precedent for Chicago’s slump. Just two years after current Cubs President Theo Epstein left the Sox, Boston won the World Series with a core roster that Epstein mostly assembled. The following year, however, the Red Sox disappointed their fans by scraping together a woeful 71-win season. This was part of a multi-season trend of the Red Sox zig-zagging between contention and mediocrity, and that stretch wound up being the most extreme set of year-to-year swings in MLB history.But unlike the 2014 Red Sox or the ’98 Marlins, the 2017 Cubs have fallen apart while fielding a roster that’s largely unchanged from the year before. The Red Sox lost a star in Jacoby Ellsbury, along with an everyday catcher (Jarrod Saltalamacchia) and some bit players; the Marlins turned over nearly their entire team after winning it all. By contrast, Dexter Fowler counts as the Cubs’ only notable subtraction, and a healthy Kyle Schwarber (fresh off his World Series heroics) was supposed to offset Fowler’s loss. Instead, Schwarber floundered so much that he was was sent to the minors. (Granted, Fowler hasn’t been impressive with his new team, either.)It’s unlikely that the Cubs will continue to be this bad for the rest of the year. Even with their poor play through the season’s first 83 games, most projections call for them to rack up many more wins over the second half. They ought to sneak into the playoffs in a division with few strong contenders, and once they’re there, anything can happen. But even if you credit Chicago with the elevated run differential that these projections expect over the rest of the season, rather than simply pro-rating their differential so far, the Cubs would still end the year with the eighth-largest decline in history. No matter what happens, the Cubs’ 2017 performance will have been just as historic as it was a year earlier, even if it’s not nearly so impressive.

Randomized drug testing is a fact of life for professional athletes. They’re supposed to ensure a level playing field by exposing cheaters… but there are always some who figure they can beat the system.A quick word of advice for would-be cheats: make sure you borrow urine from someone who’s a close match. For example, no man should ever hand in a sample that tests positive for pregnancy hormones.D.J. Cooper may have missed that memo. The former Ohio University standout was recently slapped with a 2-year ban by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) when his drug test results revealed that he was pregnant.Former Ohio star DJ Cooper failed a FIBA drug test by using his pregnant girlfriend’s urine https://t.co/BkkNdqXI6D— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) August 5, 2019Cooper tested positive for human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG. hCG is produced by the placenta and it starts as soon as a fertilized egg attaches to the uterus. You don’t need a fancy drug testing setup to find hCG in urine. A take-home pregnancy test will spot it.Fertilized eggs, uteri, placentas, and hCG are not generally things that are found in a human male.No, Cooper was not moonlighting as a research scientist who wanted to personally test a fertility drug he created. He was just bad at cheating and got the ‘clean’ urine he provided to FIBA’s testers from his girlfriend, who apparently didn’t realize she was pregnant at the time.The cat’s definitely out of the bag at this point, what with news of the Cooper’s botched cheating attempt popping up all over the Internet.But maybe Cooper was never trying to beat the drug test in the first place. Maybe — just maybe — he already knew his girlfriend was pregnant and cooked up an extremely elaborate plan to reveal the news to her… and it just happened to go completely off the rails and turn into the media spectacle we have now.More on Geek.com:Nothin’ But Net for Toyota’s Guinness Record-Winning Basketball BotNBA’s App-Controlled ‘Smart Jersey’ Can Change Your Player Name and NumberWatch: Runner Goes ‘Full Superman’ at Finish Line to Win Race Nothin’ But Net for Toyota’s Guinness Record-Winning Basketball BotWatch: Runner Goes ‘Full Superman’ at Finish Line to Win Race Stay on target
More recently, physicists have been theorizing the possibility of lower dimensionality, in which the universe has only two or even one spatial dimension(s), along with one dimension of time. The theories suggest that the lower dimensions occurred in the past when the universe was much smaller and had a much higher energy level (and temperature) than today. Further, it appears that the concept of lower dimensions may already have some experimental evidence in cosmic ray observations.Now in a new study, physicists Jonas Mureika from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California, and Dejan Stojkovic from SUNY at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York, have proposed a new and independent method for experimentally detecting lower dimensions. They’ve published their study in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.In 2010, a team of physicists including Stojkovic proposed a lower-dimensional framework in which spacetime is fundamentally a (1 + 1)-dimensional universe (meaning it contains one spatial dimension and one time dimension). In other words, the universe is a straight line that is “wrapped up” in such a way so that it appears (3 + 1)-dimensional at today’s higher energy scales, which is what we see. The scientists don’t know the exact energy levels (or the exact age of the universe) when the transitions between dimensions occurred. However, they think that the universe’s energy level and size directly determine its number of dimensions, and that the number of dimensions evolves over time as the energy and size change. They predict that the transition from a (1 + 1)- to a (2 + 1)-dimensional universe happened when the temperature of the universe was about 100 TeV (teraelectronvolts) or less, and the transition from a (2 + 1)- to a (3 + 1)-dimensional universe happened later at about 1 TeV. Today, the temperature of the universe is about 10-3 eV. So far, there may already be one piece of experimental evidence for the existence of a lower-dimensional structure at a higher energy scale. When observing families of cosmic ray particles in space, scientists found that, at energies higher than 1 TeV, the main energy fluxes appear to align in a two-dimensional plane. This means that, above a certain energy level, particles propagate in two dimensions rather than three dimensions. Copyright 2010 PhysOrg.com. All rights reserved.

The content is provided for information purposes only. In the current study, Mureika and Stojkovic have proposed a second test for lower dimensions that would provide independent evidence for their existence. The test is based on the assumption that a (2 + 1)-dimensional spacetime, which is a flat plane, has no gravitational degrees of freedom. This means that gravity waves and gravitons cannot have been produced during this epoch. So the physicists suggest that a future gravitational wave detector looking deep into space might find that primordial gravity waves cannot be produced beyond a certain frequency, and this frequency would represent the transition between dimensions. Looking backwards, it would appear that one of our spatial dimensions has “vanished.”The scientists added that it should be possible, though perhaps more difficult, to test for the existence of (1 + 1)-dimensional spacetime.“It will be challenging with the current experiments,” Stojkovic told PhysOrg.com. “But it is within the reach of both the LHC and cosmic ray experiments if the two-dimensional to one-dimensional crossover scale is 10 TeV.”Lower dimensions at higher energies could have several advantages for cosmologists. For instance, models of quantum gravity in (2 + 1) and (1 + 1) dimensions could overcome some of the problems that plague quantum gravity theories in (3 + 1) dimensions. Also, reducing the dimensions of spacetime might solve the cosmological constant problem, which is that the cosmological constant is fine-tuned to fit observations and does not match theoretical calculations. A solution may lie in the existence of energy that is currently hiding between two folds of our (3 + 1)-dimensional spacetime, which will open up into (4 + 1)-dimensional spacetime in the future when the universe’s decreasing energy level reaches another transition point.“A change of paradigm,” Stojkovic said about the significance of lower dimensions. “It is a new avenue to attack long-standing problems in physics.” More information: Jonas Mureika and Dejan Stojkovic. “Detecting Vanishing Dimensions via Primordial Gravitational Wave Astronomy.” Physical Review Letters 106, 101101 (2011). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.106.101101 Citation: Physicists investigate lower dimensions of the universe (2011, March 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-03-physicists-dimensions-universe.html (PhysOrg.com) — Several speculative theories in physics involve extra dimensions beyond our well-known four (which are broken down into three dimensions of space and one of time). Some theories have suggested 5, 10, 26, or more, with the extra spatial dimensions “hiding” within our observable three dimensions. One thing that all of these extra dimensions have in common is that none has ever been experimentally detected; they are all mathematical predictions. Who cares about the fourth dimension?

I’ve always loved technology and recently became one of the growing number of Americans to buy a drone. Like many drone operators, I marvel at the current commercial and recreational applications as well as the potential for the future. The FAA estimates there are 1.9 million drones used by hobbyists in the U.S. today. By 2020, this number is expected to rise to 4.3 million, showing the huge growth potential for this fledgling industry.Related: Walmart Wants Drones in Stores Shopping for YouBut before this industry expands further, there are a few very valid concerns we need to address. Even as a newcomer, I can immediately recognize the responsibility drone operators need in regards to safety and privacy. As unmanned aerial vehicles become ubiquitous, the technology will move faster than the laws meant to regulate the industry. Thus, it’s crucial that the drone industry is proactive at self-regulation. This includes collaboration between manufacturers to create an industry standards board to oversee the implementation of enhanced safety software, as well as the education for drone operators, and the public, about drone usage.This may create more obstacles for the industry’s short term profits, but its long-range sustainability will be given the chance to flourish when the public sees drones as a beneficial tool, not some snooping eye in the sky.We’ve all heard the stories of drones spying on sunbathing women. As cliché as it is, this happened to my wife while she was on our “private” deck and a drone suddenly appeared above her. While Americans recognize the benefits of drones, especially when used for search and rescue purposes or safety inspection, privacy infringement concerns remain due to misuse of the technology.The government is trying to keep pace. There are state laws in place that outlaw using a drone to capture images of either a nude or partially nude person. But the keywording in these laws is “capturing images” because states can’t dictate where drones can legally fly. These flight path regulations are determined by the FAA, which doesn’t deal with privacy issues, only airborne safety.These sets of guidelines and state laws are inconsistent across the country and lack enforcement, which opens the door for non-compliance. With these challenges comes opportunity. If the drone industry can be proactive by rolling out systems that protect public privacy and safety, it can avoid public backlash as widespread drone usage increases.Related: UPS Tests Drone-Based Package DeliveriesTo keep hobbyist and commercial drones seen as a positive tool, the industry needs to add software that makes it readily apparent when a drone is filming. This could include loud beeps every 10 seconds while recording or every time a drone takes a photo, as well as including bright flashing lights to make it more visible to anyone on the ground. While this does not address government or law enforcement surveillance, it’s a step in the right direction for privacy protection in the hobbyist and commercial markets.While peeping on women dominates the headlines, there is also the potential for much more serious safety concerns. Manufacturers have taken some initiative on protecting public safety by installing collision avoidance algorithms. But the current technology only works if the drone is flying forward, not while ascending, or flying sideways or backwards. Perfecting this safety system will help alleviate concerns regarding collisions with aircraft, people, powerlines and other drones.Geofencing software is also currently available in most high-end consumer drones to limit flying in restricted airspace. DJI, the market leader in the recreational sector, has led the charge with this technology, due in large part to a DJI drone crashing on the White House lawn in 2015. By perfecting this technology and making it ubiquitous across all models, the industry can keep critical airspace uncrowded and decrease public safety concerns. One other major challenge we face is getting drone pilots, young and old, to think and act like commercial airline pilots. These pilots follow safety procedures that have been honed over the past 100 years, including a keen understanding of how human factors, technological limitations and safety systems are interrelated. While the FAA does require drone operators to pass a series of exams for commercial use, the same is not required for hobbyists.The lack of proper training leads to major safety concerns. If any teenager in America (and beyond) can get a drone for Christmas or their birthday, what systems are in place to ensure they use it safely? I’m not trying to suggest that every single drone owner needs to take extensive FAA courses in order to fly. But we do need a standardized training course of high-level safety points as well as a primer on local, state and federal laws.Related: Drone Accidents: Not Your Fault?The sky is the limit for the growth of the drone industry. The issues that could lead to public backlash or government intervention are known. Now it’s up to us as pilots — and the industry as a whole — to prevent this from happening by self-regulating while the government plays catchup.With improved hardware and software that’s pervasive across different manufacturers and models, we can ease privacy and safety concerns. Meanwhile, standardizing basic education will help bring a sense of professionalism and accountability to all new pilots. This is not something we do soon, this is something we need to do now to ensure this transformative technology continues to grow and improve virtually every aspect of our work and lives. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Arizona Cardinals outside linebacker Chandler Jones (55) during the second half of an NFL football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) So, this is what happens when you beat a good team?The Arizona Cardinals scored their most impressive win of 2017 by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-24 at University of Phoenix Stadium last Sunday. Jacksonville came into the game riding a four-game winning streak powered by the league’s best defense and running game. The Cardinals were able to move the ball against the Jags while bottling up Leonard Fournette, who managed only 25 yards on the ground. Ultimately, Arizona is an average team that is going to struggle to maintain consistency down the stretch. That stretch is tough, and I don’t see the Cardinals getting back in the playoff hunt this season.

When the Cardinals can run the ball with some consistency, they can be tough to stop. Bruce Arians is going to find creative ways to throw the ball downfield. The problem is they haven’t been able to run consistently this season.Fortunately, the Jaguars’ biggest defensive weakness is against the run. This helped open the passing game up for Blaine Gabbert, who does have some arm talent and who can make some nice throws.It also helped that the Jaguars have a one-dimensional offense. Arizona was able to sell out against the run and put Jacksonville in a lot of unfavorable situations.

But he switched to tight end with the Cardinals after not being drafted, and after starting the season on the practice squad and not catching a pass before Week 11, Seals-Jones has 128 yards and three touchdowns the last two weeks. He has a great size-speed combination (6-foot-5, 243 pounds, ran a 4.69-second 40-yard dash at the combine) and we might be seeing the start of a really fun breakout.USA Today Power Rankings – Week 13Cardinals rank: #20 (▲9)Dare we ask if Bruce Arians is making a legit quarterback out of Blaine Gabbert, who’s looked un-Gabbert-like against two quality defenses?
