‘Oppn. giving political colour to SMS row’


first_imgIn the thick of controversy over sending inappropriate text messages to a woman IAS officer, Punjab Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Tuesday alleged that the Opposition was giving political colour to the episode as he had been pressing for strict action against Akali Dal leaders in the Bargari sacrilege incident.Mr. Channi said that the messages were “unintentionally and mistakenly” forwarded to the lady officer. “I had apologised to the officer and she had accepted it. I am being targeted by the Opposition as I have been raising the sacrilege incident and issues concerning Dalits in the State,” he said.Mr. Channi added that Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh is aware of the incident and has even issued a statement in this regard. “I will meet him once he is back from abroad [Turkey],” he said.Meanwhile, the Shiromani Akali Dal accused Mr. Channi of playing the “Dalit card” to absolve himself of the incident. Akali Dal leaders Gulzar Singh Ranike, Sohan Singh Thandal and Pawan Kumar Tinu in a joint statement dubbed the incident of sending text messages as a “disgrace” for the government and demanded immediate dismissal of Mr. Channi and a case against him.Mr. Channi was recently accused by a woman IAS officer of sending her inappropriate text messages. The Chief Minister released a statement specifying that the matter had been taken up seriously and, to the best of his knowledge, resolved to the officer’s satisfaction.last_img read more

Kavanaugh Supporters In Kenai Want To Be Heard


first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Early Thursday morning Diane Macrae was among the first to arrive at a rally, off Kalifornsky Beach Road, in support of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK),  is considered a swing vote, and has said she has made “no decision” on Kavanaugh’s fate,  as of Thursday morning. Alaskans urging a “no” vote are also making their case loudly with the support of the ACLU. The ACLU has been flying dozens of Alaskans to D.C. to deliver their message in person. Diane Macrae: “This was just neighbors talking to neighbors, and saying let’s do it, why be silent, if you support them you don’t have to be ashamed of supporting someone you think would be a good Supreme Court Justice.”  Republican Senate leaders and White House officials said Thursday that an FBI background investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh revealed no evidence of wrongdoing. A final vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination could come as early as Saturday, following a procedural vote on Friday morning. Macrae is joined by others in the community hoping that their voices will be heard: “There’s a lot of pressure on Lisa Murkowski from outsiders. It seems like our voice on the nationwide and all over is not being heard. Her phones have been busy, and this was a way to reach out and let her know this is support for Brett.”last_img read more


Esquire Takes Stock of Time


first_imgTime, December 10, 2007; Esquire, June 2008As it’s been noted on this blog before, magazine editors seem to have an endless fascination with putting Barack Obama on their covers. Which, in turn, leads to fascinating graphic portrayals—some, you might say, angelic—and, naturally, perhaps, some overlap. Like this.Both shots come from the same photo shoot. The original shoot (by renowned, one-named photographer Platon) was commissioned by Time; Esquire bought the cover shot from Platon. I asked Esquire design director David Curcurito for background. He referred me to a lengthy interview Michael Norseng, the magazine’s director of photography, gave to Rob Haggart, former photo director for Men’s Journal and Outside and blogger behind A Photo Editor:In response to the original question you refrenced, “we wonder how Esquire failed to get an exclusive portrait for their cover” my guess is that they didn’t bother to read Charles Pierce’s story on the inside of the issue “The Cynic and The Senator Obama.” Charles observed the Obama campaign from the outside, as the millions of us in the crowd are doing, and offered a critical appraisal of the Senator without a sit down interview. As you know, it’s rare, especially for a guy who had bigger fish to fry at the time of the issue, to participate in a shoot when there is no direct involvement with the piece.We were of course aware that the Platon shoot was originally commissioned by Time and how they ran the material. However, Platon has a long history of shooting key political figures for Esquire, starting with, one of the most iconic of all time, the Bill Clinton cover in December of 2000. Since then, he has done others, GOP candidate McCain in ’06 and Senator Edwards in 07. So, if a shoot would have somehow presented itself, its fair to say that he would have been at the top of our list. Thus, we were extremely happy that the B/W shot was available and that we got it for our cover.My guess is that they feel in love with the image, and probably figured that in this election cycle, six months is an eternity, and few readers would notice (given Curcurito’s trademark coverline treatments) and those that did wouldn’t care.last_img read more


Black Virginia Voters Feel Betrayed Left in NoWin Scenario


first_imgBy Errin Haines Whack, The Associated PressEva Siakam’s choice to campaign for Ralph Northam in 2017 was a simple one: He was a Democrat and endorsed by Barack Obama, America’s first Black president.But sitting in a stylist’s chair at Supreme Hair Styling Boutique in Richmond on Feb. 8, she shook her head in disgust when asked about revelations that Northam wore Blackface as a medical student 35 years ago.In this Dec. 18, 2017 file photo, from left, Lt. Governor-elect Justin Fairfax, Attorney General-elect Mark Herring and Governor-elect Ralph Northam listen as Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe addresses a joint meeting of the House and Senate money committees at the Pocahontas Building in Richmond, Va. (Bob Brown/Richmond Times-Dispatch via AP)“I really believed in him,” said Siakam, a 28-year-old student. “To find out that he dressed up in Blackface is disappointing. He’s shown his disdain for Black people.”Black voters who factored prominently in the 2017 election that helped Northam become governor are feeling betrayed over the scandals that have engulfed the state over the past week, leaving them with a less-than-ideal set of choices at the top of the Democratic Party: a governor and attorney general who wore Blackface and a lieutenant governor who stands accused by two women of sexual assault. The next person in line for governor is a conservative Republican.Many are struggling to come to grips with a list of nagging questions: Do they forgive the Democrats, keep Republicans out of power and demand the governor get serious about racism? Should Northam step down and hand the office to African-American Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who faces sexual assault allegations? Or should all three of them walk away and let principle prevail, even if the other party takes charge?The dilemma was being weighed in Black barber shops, salons, restaurants and living rooms and in activist and political circles across the state in the midst of a still-unfolding reckoning around race and scandal in the Old Dominion.“We don’t even know where to take the conversation from here,” community organizer Chelsea Wise said at a meeting of Democrats in Richmond on Feb. 7. “Do we want to address all of them, or are we just sticking with Ralph right now? The fact that it’s all of our top leadership shows that we need to take a hard look at the Virginia Democratic Party as well.”The governor has been facing calls to resign ever since a photo emerged from his medical school yearbook page in 1984 that showed someone in Blackface next to a person wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe.Northam later admitted wearing Blackface and impersonating Michael Jackson around the same time. Days later, Fairfax was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 2004, and Attorney General Mark Herring came forward to admit that he, too, wore Blackface in the 1980s.As of Friday night, Northam informed his cabinet that he was determined to stay in office, Herring remained in a wait-and-see posture, and Fairfax had denied a second accusation of sexual assault, this one from a classmate at Duke University who said he raped her in 2000. Northam is vowing to start an honest conversation on race to begin to heal Virginia’s lingering racial legacy.Siakam said she thinks Northam should resign, but said the conversation must now turn to the larger impacts of racism on communities of color.“There’s nothing you can do for us to forget, but we should focus more now on structural racism,” she said.African Americans, who make up 20 percent of Virginia voters, overwhelmingly supported the commonwealth’s top three Democrats in 2017, in large part as a repudiation of what they saw as the racist rhetoric and policies prevalent in the 2016 presidential campaign and the White supremacist rally in Charlottesville just months before the election. Both Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring campaigned heavily in Black areas, and were given entree into many communities by local officials, faith leaders, business owners and regular citizens.Wise said she had reservations about Northam’s commitment to Black communities during the election, but supported him anyway and was prepared to hold him accountable amid a racially divided national climate.“We knew Trump had just gotten elected and we needed a Democratic governor in Virginia, especially because of the importance of the state in national elections,” Wise, 34, explained. “I almost felt like I couldn’t question him because of the urgency add the importance of what we just had on the national level.”Wise said she felt betrayed by Northam’s revelations, particularly because he remained silent about his own past after the events of Charlottesville.“How in the world did you not come out and do your own truth telling?” she said. “That makes me recognize that you don’t have the insight and emotional capacity to take on what we need in Virginia at this time.”Shemicia Bowen campaigned for Democrats up and down the ticket. The 44-year-old Richmond resident said she gasped when she learned the governor had worn Blackface 35 years ago. She finds Herring’s revelations were even more alarming because he’s the state’s top lawyer and has to deal with daily decisions affecting Black people in the criminal justice system.Still, Bowen struggles with the way forward for Black Virginians. She doesn’t think anyone will step down, and as a loyal Democrat, she’s not sure they should turn over the state to Republicans.“We can’t just throw the whole ticket away at this point,” said Bowen. “But we have to understand that Blackface is a blatant form of disrespect. If an elected official isn’t aware of that, what else are they not aware of? What else do you feel like is not a big deal? How are you able to effectively be a voice for every person?”Norfolk native Joe Dillard said Northam should resign, and that the allegations against Fairfax should be investigated before discussing what consequences he should face. But the idea of a Republican governor should all three step aside was not unpalatable if it’s the right decision, he said.“Do I think I should support Democrats to the point where I allow certain things that my great grandparents would slap me in the face for letting slide? No, I won’t,” Dillard said. “I am not a Democrat before I’m an African-American man. For me, it’s always people over party.”Dillard and Bowen, both members of a group of young Blacks active in Virginia politics, said Northam should immediately allocate at least $20 million to the state’s historically Black colleges and universities, which have been underfunded. Dillard also suggested an African-American liaison in the governor’s office, to establish a pipeline for young Blacks to rise to meaningful positions in government. Wise is already looking ahead to future cycles, where she feels more Black women in leadership would help to restore her confidence in the party.Jim Scurlock, a longtime elections supervisor in Richmond who went to segregated high schools in Roanoke before experiencing the sting of Jim Crow as a young soldier in the Army in 1960, was withholding judgment on Fairfax. And he said given the national political climate and the country’s racist legacy, everyone deserves a second chance.“Probably many, many more in the General Assembly wore Blackface,” Scurlock, 82, said. “Virginia is still a racist state. It hasn’t changed much. And look at the president and all he has done . I haven’t forgiven the president, but he’s still in office, so why should they resign?”last_img read more


Two giant planets detected around an evolved intermediatemass star


first_img Citation: Two giant planets detected around an evolved intermediate-mass star (2016, January 21) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-01-giant-planets-evolved-intermediate-mass-star.html The planets were discovered by an international team of astronomers led by Bun’ei Sato of the Tokyo Institute of Technology. The researchers employed the Okayama Astrophysical Observatory (OAO) in Japan, the Xinglong Station in China and the Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO) to observe HD 47366. The planets were detected by the radial velocity method, also known as Doppler spectroscopy, which uses gravity to detect exoworlds.The astronomers were searching for any signs of wobbling when observing HD 47366, as planets exert a gravitational tug when they orbit their parent stars, causing them to wobble back and forth. Three powerful spectrographs were needed to detect this wobbling: the HIgh Dispersion Echelle Spectrograph (HIDES) at OAO, the Coude Echelle Spectrograph (CES) at Xinglong and the University College London Echelle Spectrograph (UCLES) at AAO.Precise radial-velocity measurements using these spectrographs revealed the presence of two exoplanets orbiting HD 47366. By fitting a double Keplerian model to the obtained radial-velocity data, the researchers were able to determine the mass, semimajor axis and eccentricity of the newly discovered worlds. According to their computations, the inner and outer planet have minimum masses equal to 1.75 and 1.86 Jupiter masses, semimajor axes of 1.214 and 1.853 AU (astronomical units), and eccentricities of 0.089 and 0.278 respectively.With relatively small orbital separations, this planetary system has immediately become very intriguing for the scientists.”The planetary system is intriguing in the points that the best-fit Keplerian orbit is unstable, it is near but less likely in 2:1 mean-motion resonance, and could be stable if the orbits are nearly circular or in retrograde configuration,” the researchers wrote in the paper.To further investigate the orbital stability of the system and constrain orbital parameters, the astronomers performed dynamical analysis for the system. This analysis revealed that the best-fit orbits in prograde configuration are unstable. However, the scientists found that they are stable in the following cases: The two planets are in the 2:1 mean-motion resonance; the eccentricity of the outer planet is less than about 0.15; mutual inclination of two the planets is larger than 160 degrees.The researchers also assume that the current orbital configuration could also be caused by a possible third planet in this system. However, no convincing evidence supporting this theory has yet been released.According to the research team, it is still unknown why multi-giant-planet systems with small orbital separation are mostly found around evolved, intermediate-mass stars. The scientists have offered one possible explanation for this phenomenon.”It may be a primordial property of planets around intermediate-mass stars that could be an outcome of planet formation or an acquired one as a result of orbital evolution caused by stellar evolution (stellar tide and mass loss) of central stars,” the paper reads.To this date, precise radial-velocity surveys have found about 120 substellar companions around evolved stars. The discovery made by Sato and his team is another important finding increasing the population of multi-giant-planet systems found with relatively small orbital separations around evolved intermediate-mass stars. Planets around these type of stars, especially consisting of giant exoplanets, could be crucial for our understanding of formation and evolution of planetary systems. Explore further Monster planet is ‘dancing with the stars’ (Phys.org)—HD 47366 is an evolved star almost twice as massive as our sun. Located about 260 light years from the Earth, the star is approximately 1.6 billion years old, and, as it turns out, hosts two giant planets with a mass nearly two times that of Jupiter’s each. A research paper detailing the new findings was published online on Jan. 18 in the arXiv journal. More information: A Pair of Giant Planets around the Evolved Intermediate-Mass Star HD 47366: Multiple Circular Orbits or a Mutually Retrograde Configuration, arXiv:1601.04417 [astro-ph.EP] arxiv.org/pdf/1601.04417.pdfAbstractWe report the detection of a double planetary system around the evolved intermediate-mass star HD 47366 from precise radial-velocity measurements at Okayama Astrophysical Observatory, Xinglong Station, and Australian Astronomical Observatory. The star is a K1 giant with a mass of 1.81+-0.13M_sun, a radius of 7.30+-0.33R_sun, and solar metallicity. The planetary system is composed of two giant planets with minimum mass of 1.75^{+0.20}_{-0.17}Mjup and 1.86^{+0.16}_{-0.15}Mjup, orbital period of 363.3^{+2.5}_{-2.4} d and 684.7^{+5.0}_{-4.9} d, and eccentricity of 0.089^{+0.079}_{-0.060} and 0.278^{+0.067}_{-0.094}, respectively, which are derived by a double Keplerian orbital fit to the radial-velocity data. The system adds to the population of multi-giant-planet systems with relatively small orbital separations, which are preferentially found around evolved intermediate-mass stars. Dynamical stability analysis for the system revealed, however, that the best-fit orbits are unstable in the case of a prograde configuration. The system could be stable if the planets were in 2:1 mean-motion resonance, but this is less likely considering the observed period ratio and eccentricity. A present possible scenario for the system is that both of the planets have nearly circular orbits, namely the eccentricity of the outer planet is less than ~0.15, which is just within 1.4sigma of the best-fit value, or the planets are in a mutually retrograde configuration with a mutual orbital inclination larger than 160 degree.
