Partners pull plug on Aurora LNG project near Prince Rupert for economic

first_imgCALGARY – In the latest setback to B.C.’s liquefied natural gas export industry prospects, the partners developing the Aurora LNG project say they are ending a feasibility study after four years.Nexen Energy, a Calgary-based subsidiary of Chinese oil giant CNOOC Ltd., says it has decided with Japanese partner INPEX Gas British Columbia Ltd. to stop work on the proposal effective immediately.The company says in a statement the current “macro-economic environment” doesn’t support building a large LNG business as proposed at Digby Island, west of Prince Rupert, B.C.In July, a consortium led by Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas cancelled its $36-billion Pacific NorthWest LNG project near Port Edward, B.C., citing a downturn in market conditions.The project would have included a natural gas export terminal on Lelu Island on the province’s northern coast and a 900-kilometre pipeline to bring the natural gas in from northeastern B.C.The Aurora project was awaiting word on a B.C. environmental assessment certificate. Phase 1 was tentatively set to begin construction in 2020 and begin supercooling natural gas and shipping it to world markets by 2025.Like Petronas, CNOOC says the Aurora partners will continue to produce natural gas from their Horn River wells in northeastern B.C. while monitoring the North American market to evaluate future investments.In a statement Thursday, B.C.’s energy minister said Nexen and their partners were always clear that the project would be based entirely on global market conditions and low commodity prices.“We will continue to work with industry to ensure that LNG development creates jobs and training opportunities for British Columbians, provides a fair rate of return for our resources, engages with First Nations as partners, and protects our air, land and water,” Michelle Mungall said.In a recent report, the National Energy Board warned that Canada is a late entrant to the global LNG market and the next seven years will be critical to the development of the industry.last_img read more

Mamata angry with central force for firing during polling

first_imgKolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday slammed the central forces for allegedly firing “inside” a polling booth in Birbhum district and accused the BJP of misusing the forces in the elections. Stating that the law and order is a state subject, she said it is not the job of the central forces to enter polling booths and they should keep vigil outside. In Dubrajpur area of Birbhum constituency, voters allegedly engaged in a scuffle with the central forces when they were barred from entering booths with mobile phones, a senior election official said.

I am yet to get the detailed report. CRPF personnel can be deputed outside booths, but they do not have the right to lathicharge or fire,” Banerjee, also the TMC supremo, said. She alleged that the firing was a ploy to rig the polls by the BJP with the help of central forces.

Even if the central forces have to conduct a route march, they are required to do it along with the state police,” the TMC chief said while speaking at rallies in Bagdhah and Swaroop Nagar in North 24 Parganas district. Banerjee accused the BJP of misusing the law and bringing in central forces without depending on the state police and using them in garnering votes for themselves. “We know the law. I have heard that complaints were made (before the EC) that the central force personnel have gone inside booths and asked people to vote for the BJP. This will not help the BJP,” she said. “The BJP do not trust the Bengal police. The police are on security duty during the Durga Puja, during Diwali. They protect us from thieves and dacoits. And during elections, you need policemen from Delhi,” Banerjee said. Asking the BJP to trust the people, she said police will not vote for its candidates but the people will. Violence was reported from several parts of the eight Lok Sabha constituencies where polling is going on Monday. Clashes have broken out between the supporters of rival parties in Nanoor, Rampurhat, Nalhati and Siuri areas of Birbhum seat, injuring several people. The Election Commission has deployed central forces at around 98.8 per cent of the booths in the eight seats — Baharampur, Krishnagar, Ranaghat (SC), Burdwan East (SC), Burdwan-Durgapur, Asansol, Bolpur (SC) and Birbhum. Addressing the rallies, Banerjee called upon the people to vote against the BJP and dethrone Prime Minister Narendra Modi from power. “He (Modi) is adept at lying constantly,” Banerjee said adding “Whenever he comes to Bengal, he provokes his supporters to disrupt peace in the state in order to yield political dividend,” she alleged. The BJP brigade is distributing money to purchase voters and resorting to divisive politics which is in contrary to the state’s culture, Banerjee claimed. The TMC chief expressed confidence that her party will win all the 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state and play a pivotal role in forming the next government at the Centre.last_img read more

In Bangladesh UN humanitarian chief commends countrys disaster preparedness

“This is one of the strongest examples of how preparedness saves lives. And preparedness doesn’t have to be costly,” the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Valerie Amos, said in a news release following her first visit to the Asian nation. Ms. Amos added that with 25,000 community volunteers trained to be the first line of response after a natural disaster such as a storm or flood, Bangladesh had proven that such measures not only saves lives, but are also cost effective. Low-lying and with the world’s highest population density, Bangladesh is one of the world’s most disaster-prone countries. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which Ms. Amos heads, an estimated 135 million people have been affected in Bangladesh by disasters over the past 20 years. Nevertheless, the country is also frequently hailed as a leader in disaster risk reduction due to a series of preparedness measures it adopted following a devastating cyclone which hit the country in 1991 and killed more than 140,000 people. In 2001, when another major cyclone struck, numerous volunteers aided those affected, moving thousands of people away from the disaster area and saving many lives. In comparison with ten years earlier, the death toll from that tragedy was limited to 4,000. However, Ms. Amos also noted that Bangladesh – situated in a geologically active area of the planet – was also overdue a severe earthquake with a potentially devastating impact on its capital city, Dhaka, where around 40 million people work and where 65 per cent of the buildings are at risk of collapse following powerful tremors. “The Government is aware that it needs to strengthen this part of disaster preparedness and I commend its initiative to train more than 62,000 community volunteers in urban disaster preparedness,” Ms. Amos continued. During her visit, the UN humanitarian chief met with local Government representatives, as well as UN officials and workers from non-governmental organizations, to discuss the challenges Bangladesh still faces regarding humanitarian access and resilience-building in local communities. In addition, OCHA confirmed the deployment of a senior advisor to help the Government, UN and local partners in Bangladesh to strengthen support on disaster management. The visit to Bangladesh is one part of a three-country visit to the region, which includes Myanmar and Thailand. In Myanmar, Ms. Amos is expected to visit Rakhine state – the location of recent inter-communal violence – and highlight humanitarian concerns in the country, as well as discuss with authorities concrete steps to address the challenges and moves towards reconciliation and stability. read more

Approximately 2500 students attend Ohio State football Student Appreciation Day

Brutus Buckeye gives a high-five to a student during OSU football’s Student Appreciation Day April 5 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Approximately 2,500 students showed up to the practice.Credit: Desiaire Rickman / Lantern photographerWhen 2,500 students are on the playing field, it usually means something big has happened for the Ohio State football team.While the Buckeyes did not pull an upset win or beat a highly ranked team, the intrasquad practice drew a large crowd for the team’s third annual Student Appreciation Day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.The event, started by OSU football coach Urban Meyer in spring 2012, is aimed at getting students involved in the program — as with some of the approximately 2,500 who attended were invited to join the players in their stretching lines prior to practice.Students not only stretched with the team — some even attempted field goals as their peers surrounded the play. Adam Watson, a first-year in biomedical science and Block “O” football director, said plenty of planning went into the event from the student side.“We worked a lot with the football operations director for athletics Fernando Lovo,” Watson said. “We got to come into a practice and talk to a few guys to see what they wanted.”The Block “O” student section tossed T-shirts to the crowd and featured some students with body paint, much like one would see at a game in Ohio Stadium.“Ultimately, we just want to get overall involvement,” Watson said.The finalists in the fastest student competition took their places following practice to compete and see who will race sophomore running back Dontre Wilson and senior wide receiver Devin Smith during halftime of the Spring Game scheduled for April 12. Among the winning finalists were fourth-year in sports industry Mesiah Smith, who was a member of Ohio State’s club football team in 2013.Redshirt-junior tight end Nick Vannett said he appreciated the students coming out to support the football program.“I can honestly say there are very few programs out there that do something like this,” Vannett said. “I think it is good that we have such a good fanbase. I think it is good for the students and for the players. Getting to meet all of the students that support us and I just think all around it is a good event.”One OSU player in particular made his presence felt during his team’s practice, as redshirt-sophomore cornerback Eli Apple intercepted redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett twice. His performance merited the black stripe on his helmet to be removed, fully initiating him as a Buckeye.“He played good,” Vannett said of Apple. “I saw that one hit he had on Jeff Greene and after that, pretty much sealed the deal for his black stripe coming off.”Apple was not the only player who had a big day, as redshirt-freshman tight end Marcus Baugh caught a pair of touchdown passes from Barrett. Baugh said after the practice he is feeling much more comfortable with the offense.“I just try to go out there and go hard … That is what I did on those plays, and J.T. put the ball on the spot,” Baugh said.With senior tight end Jeff Heuerman out for the remainder of spring practice after having surgery on his foot, Baugh said he has the opportunity to work on his game a little more.“It is definitely helping me work on my blocking,” Baugh said of getting more playing time. “With him being out, coach is really giving me a lot of reps on the harder blocks that last year I wasn’t too good at.”After the spring game, the Buckeyes are slated to begin their 2014 campaign Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Share65 Tweet Email center_img http://jrnl.ie/3854642 Gabriel Byrne: ‘People coming in and making films in Ireland cheaply – that’s not an industry’ The legendary actor said that Ireland has the same battle as every small country in succeeding in the film industry. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Aoife Barry Image: Michael Chester info@chester.ie IRISH ACTOR GABRIEL Byrne has spoken about the challenges facing Ireland’s film industry – saying he doesn’t know if the government cares about it, and that people making films cheaply here doesn’t actually constitute an industry.He was speaking at last night’s IFTA awards for film and drama, where he was given a Lifetime Achievement Award at a star-studded ceremony at the Mansion House.When asked about what he thought of the current condition of the Irish film industry, Byrne told TheJournal.ie that Ireland faces many challenges.“Ireland has the same battle that every small country has – because the dominant market is the American market. And it shouldn’t be but it is the test that the film, how it does in America, that’s where the money is, that’s where the rewards are. But you know if you’re a novelist you can sit at a table and you can tell your own story without interference from anybody else,” he said.He described how believes this dependence on success in the US in turn affects the types of films that can be made by Irish people.“We’re not in that position where we’re able to tell our own stories. We’re just not,” he said. “To finance them, and tell them we’re away from that.”He also described how he believes the Irish film industry is not always how people make it out to be, and still needs to grow.“So we’re still not quite a fully functioning film industry and when people say ‘oh yes, it’s really flourishing’, sometimes what they mean is that people come in and make films in Ireland, sometimes cheaper than they’d be able to make them anywhere else. That’s not an industry.”Asked what can be done about this, Byrne said: ”I don’t know. I mean I don’t know if the government look on film as something that is important. I don’t even know if they look at the arts as something important.”Byrne said that having a new Culture Minister – Josepha Madigan – is “a good thing”.But he emphasised that he sees film as belonging not just at awards ceremonies, but in schools.“We have to put it at the forefront, in schools, every child benefits hugely from drama because it gives creative expression to your inner self. It don’t think it’s treated seriously, to be honest.”He said in his own speech at the IFTA awards that even though he didn’t know while younger what leaps he would take into the unknown, he was glad he took them.“If there’s anybody out there who has that silent urging or voice, listen to it, do it, because the doing of it means that you won’t regret it – because it’s better to have done it than to never have done it,” he said.Also at the awards last night was John Connors, who spoke about the challenges funding the film he starred in (and won an IFTA for), Cardboard Gangsters, which was Ireland’s biggest homegrown film at the box office last year.He spoke about the Irish Film Board not funding the film, pointing out that it went on to win multiple awards.He also spoke about the challenges facing him as a Traveller in the acting industry, saying that casting agents won’t look past the point that he’s a Traveller.Connors said that seven years ago he was contemplating suicide, until his brother Joe reached out to him – which resulted in a lightbulb moment where he decided to pursue acting.Read: Black on the red carpet as gender is put on the agenda at IFTA awards>last_img read more

Brush fire in Rancho San Diego spreads to 10 acres

first_img Posted: June 3, 2018 Brush fire in Rancho San Diego spreads to 10 acres June 3, 2018 , Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter RANCHO SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A small brush fire scorched about 10 acres of vegetation and prompted the evacuation of several homes in Rancho San Diego before firefighters knocked down the flames, authorities said Monday.The blaze was reported about 6:25 p.m. Sunday in the area of Brabham Street and Greenwick Road, a little north of Cottonwood Two County Park and the Cottonwood Golf Club, San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Matt Cook said.As crews from Cal Fire and the San Miguel Fire Protection District began battling the blaze, sheriff’s deputies evacuated residents from several flame-threatened homes on Bridgehampton Place, Cook said. The evacuation orders were lifted less than an hour later when fire crews stopped the forward progress of the flames.The fire departments used at least one helicopter to drop water on the flames from above, and the burn area was contained to about 10 acres, according to the sheriff’s department and Cal Fire San Diego.“There were no injuries or damage to any structures,” Cook said,, adding that Cal Fire and San Miguel Fire investigators will probe the cause of the blaze.Dubbed the “Green Fire,” it was the second small brush fire in Rancho San Diego over the weekend, and the second to break out in the county within a few hours Sunday afternoon.

Alaska lawmakers industry grapple with oil subsidies

first_imgLobbyists Kevin Jardell and Dan Seckers talk to Alaska Department of Revenue Commissioner Randall Hoffbeck during a break in a hearing on a state House oil tax credit bill on Wednesday, in Juneau, Alaska. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)House Bill 111 is the latest proposed tweak to the state’s oil tax system, one that supporters hope will hold oil companies to a minimum tax rate and get the state out of the business of writing checks to companies.Listen nowRight now, Alaska has a system of tax credits designed to drive new development to the North Slope. It does this, in part, by offering credits for exploration and development of new fields and then offering cash payments for those credits.But, as oil prices have dropped, so has the state’s production tax revenue. And that’s left it in the awkward position of paying more in cash credits to incentivize new production then it’s making from actual production.House Bill 111 proposes getting the state out of the business of cutting checks to companies and forcing them to pay a minimum tax rate. Not everyone is happy about it.“I mean, I think the state worked feverishly hard to attract some of the new players. And the current bill, House Bill 111, seems to be chasing away those new investors,” Pat Foley Vice President for Alaska Operations at Caelus Energy, said.Caelus is one of the independent companies that headed to the North Slope to look for oil. It has had a lot of support from the state.Foley said the company spent about $125 million drilling two wells out in Smith Bay, earning enough tax credits on those wells to leave the state on the hook for about 70% of the costs. (Though, he said the state hasn’t actually reimbursed the company for those credits yet.)That investment could pay off in a big way: Caelus announced in October, that it thinks its found at least 6 billion barrels of oil in Smith Bay.But the site will be hugely expensive to develop. The company estimates it could cost up to $10 billion. And, under the current tax credit structure the state could be on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars in cash subsidies as the company builds the infrastructure it will need to get that oil into the pipeline.For many lawmakers, like House Resources Committee co-chair Geran Tarr, D-Anchorage, that’s an untenable position.Pat Galvin, Chief Operating Officer of Great Bear Petroleum Operating, LLC., waits for his turn to testify before a House Finance committee on Wednesday in Juneau, Alaska. Galvin and other oil industry representatives were weighing-in on a bill that would curb the state’s oil tax credit program. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)“The state cannot afford cash subsidies to the oil industry,” Tarr said. “We have over $900 million obligated right now. We’re having a struggle meeting our basic needs and paying for essential services. The cash credits have to go.”Tarr said the bill is a change in philosophy for the state. But she, and others in the House, see it as a shift that needs to happen as the state  grapples with low oil prices and a multi-billion dollar budget deficit.Caelus isn’t the only company that has some potentially game-changing finds on the North Slope. And lawmakers are trying to find ways to continue leveling the playing field between legacy producers and the new companies — without writing checks.One change in the bill would let companies carry forward half of their operating losses, plus a little bit of interest for up to seven years–essentially lowering their tax bill instead of giving them credits.And Foley said that could be key to keeping independent producers operating on the North Slope.“If they eliminate all the future cash payments, but there’s something in the system that compensates us for that change – we’re totally going to keep going forward,” Foley said.The bill has a long way to go. It’s gotten a lot of push back from companies who see it as a tax hike at a time when companies are struggling with low oil prices.Plus, it still has to make it through the House Finance committee and over to the Senate with fewer than 23 days left in the regular session.last_img read more

How to find a black hole

first_img Landmark study signals shift in thinking about stem cell differentiation Since the 1960’s, physicists have been analyzing the theory of black holes and astronomers have been looking for examples in the universe.A black hole is a concentration of mass so enormous that it exhibits its own gravitational force. This force is so great, that nothing escapes from it. Researchers have found a method to find black holes and analyze their characteristics, such as their mass and gravitational force, to determine if they are in fact black holes.Astrophysicists first look for compact, massive, dark objects in the center of nearby galaxies. Then they use Newtonian physics and a series of equations to measure the mass and spin angle of the object. If the object is at least three times the mass of the sun, it is classified as a black hole. However, the mass of most objects found are 10 million times the mass of the sun.Current research focuses on finding yet more black holes and in particular, discovering if they contain event horizons. An event horizon is a one-way barrier that causes the isolation of the black hole’s interior from the outside universe. Matter, energy, information, and radiation, for example, can fall into the black hole, but nothing, not even light, can get out.For years, astronomers have been studying a huge, dark object in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy that affects the motion of the stars and gasses that are nearby.Infrared technology has been used to discover that there are stars orbiting this object. The mass of this object is 30 million times the mass of the sun. Most astrophysicists have accepted that this is a black hole in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.Physicists and astronomers alike are working to find even more black holes in many different galaxies, and to find stronger evidence that they have event horizons.So it appears that the existence of black holes may not be such a mystery. However, the intrigue still remains at the thought of enormous black objects with masses at least 10 million times that of the sun.Could they be at the center of every galaxy?Reference:Narayan R. 2005.

The state government has decided to get the issue of soil purchase scam probed by state vigilance bureau" Modi told reporters Modi who also holds portfolios of finance and environment and forest said as of now the government has not fixed any time-frame for completing the investigation but would certainly do it later Referring to the Patna High Court’s 13 October order seeking an inquiry status report from the Bihar government in the "soil purchase scam" Modi said "We will inform the high court that the state government has handed over the probe to the vigilance department" The high court had passed the order while hearing a PIL on the same issue As the then leader of opposition in Legislative Council Modi had on 4 April alleged that soil excavated for construction of two basement floors of a mall was purchased by Patna zoo for over Rs 90 lakh without floating tender The zoo was under Tej Pratap Yadav’s department The shopping mall is being developed on a land owned by a company in which Tej Pratap Yadav and Prasad’s other son Tejashwi Prasad Yadav were directors Modi had charged Tej Pratap with giving the contract of over Rs 90 lakh for earth filling work in the Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park popularly known as Patna zoo Following the allegation the state forest department made an investigation which found that official procedure was duly followed in the case and prima facie no evidence of irregularity had come to light In an embarrassment to Congress articles in its mouthpiece today criticised Jawaharlal Nehru’s policy on Kashmir issue and alleged that Sonia Gandhi’s father was a "fascist soldier" leaving the party squirming over the controversy on its Foundation Day An unsigned write-up in the Mumbai unit’s journal coinciding with the party’s 131st foundation day blamed Nehru for "the state of affairs in Kashmir China and Tibet" even as another write-up made controversial remarks on party chief Sonia Gandhi forcing its editor and Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam to order inquiry even as he claimed he was unaware of the content Both these articles which do not bear the name of the writer have been published in this month’s issue of ‘Congress Darshan’ Hindi edition as a tribute to the country’s first Home Minister Sardar Vallabbhai Patel on his death anniversary on December 15 The article states that Nehru should have listened to freedom fighter and former home minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s views on international affairs “Despite Patel getting the post of deputy prime minister and home minister the relations between the two leaders remained strained and both had threatened to resign time and again” reads the article The article which does not bear the name of the writer has been published in this month’s issue of Congress Darshan Hindi edition as a tribute piece to mark Patel’s death anniversary on 15 December "Despite Patel getting the post of deputy prime minister and home minister the relations between the two leaders remained strained and both had threatened to resign time and again" the article says If Nehru had embraced Patel’s foresight many problems in international affairs would not have arisen it adds Screengrab "Nehru (PM) was in charge of foreign affairs and kept Kashmir with him citing it as an international issue But Patel being deputy PM would sometimes attend the cabinet meetings Today’s problems wouldn’t have existed had Patel’s foresight in the Kashmir issue been considered then" says the article The article cited a letter that Patel wrote to Nehru in 1950 to warn him against China’s policy towards Tibet and where "Patel described China as unfaithful and a future enemy of India…" "Had Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel been heard then (by Nehru) the problems of Kashmir China Tibet and Nepal wouldn’t have existed now Patel opposed Nehru’s move of taking the Kashmir issue to the UNO” stated the article adding “Nehru did not agree with Patel’s views on Nepal" Mumbai Regional Congress Committee chief and editor of the journal Sanjay Nirupam said he is not involved in the day-to-day functioning of the magazine and was unaware of the article "I do not agree with the article It seems to have been sourced but I don’t know who the writer is" Nirupam who in his earlier stint with Shiv Sena edited Hindi newspaper ‘Dopahar Ka Saamana’ said adding that corrective measures would be taken Nirupam however told NDTV: "The kind of words that have been used in Congress Darshan are worrying I take responsibility for this and the matter shall be investigated thoroughly We will take action against those responsible" Another article which focuses on Congress President Sonia Gandhi describes her early life in great detail including her "ambition to become an airhostess" as well as allegation that her father was a member of the Italian forces that lost to the Russians in the World War "Sonia Gandhi’s father Stephano Maino was a former fascist soldier" it alleged The write-up also describes how Sonia quickly rose to the position of party president "Sonia Gandhi registered as a primary member of the Congress in 1997 and became the party’s president in 62 days She also made an unsuccessful attempt to form a government" the article says Reacting to the controversy leader Shashi Tharoor told ANI: What they accomplished is what we are living todayOur freedom is their

Being called a goon or worse won’t trouble him, Interestingly,the Congress vice-president is spending his time and energy in going through the volumes of the Gita and the Upanishads to fight a political battle against the BJP and the RSS Much to the relief of the Congress supporters and sympathisers who still believe in deliverable charisma of the Gandhi-Nehru family Rahul has not yet turned to spirituality Addressing Congress functionaries in Chennai Rahul reportedly said: “Nowadays I study the Upanishads and the Gita since I am fighting the RSS and BJP. I ask them (RSS men) my friend you are doing this you are oppressing people but it is written in the Upanishads that all are the same and how come you are contradicting what your own religion says” The Congress vice-president thereafter brought up his favourite theme against the RSS the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that they don’t "understand India" Rahul’s "how come you (BJP) are contradicting what your own religion says" statement also indicates that he considers the ruling party a Hindu organisation and not a political party The BJP obviously will not take to this kindly The timing of Rahul’s desire to read raises one question — didthe wisdom to study the Upanishads and the Bhagwad Gita dawn on him after Congress’ humiliating defeat in Uttar Pradesh and devbhoomiUttarakhand and upon seeing a saffron-clad Yogi Adityanath becoming the chief minister of India’s most populous state Rahul has not specified which volume of the Upanishads he is studying There are more than 200 volumes of the Upanishads first transferred through shurti(oral tradition) and then codified through the centuries spanning through BC (Before Christ) to early AD (Anno Domini) era Rahul’s reading capacity and ability to internalise it is not something known to the Indians It can’t be assessed if after reading the ancient scriptures Rahul will be able to enter into a debate with the RSS on political philosophy and spirituality During the Uttar Pradesh election Rahul first compared Prime Minister Narendra Modi withShah Rukh Khan of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and then withGabbar Singh of Sholay —neither the Congress workers nor the audience could understand the reference In fact many were seen leaving the ground after Rahul started using his favourite punchline Similarly during the 2014 Lok Sabha election Rahul used to talk about "escape velocity"— his innovative political thoughts remained a mystery to most By the time Rahul gets to campaigning for the next round of Assembly elections —Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh — by the year-end he will most probably come out with more convincing arguments drawn from the Gita and the Upanishads After Rahul is done studying the scriptures may be the Congress workers could coin a catchphrase to respond toSangh Parivar’s ‘Jai Sri Ram’ war cry But the Congress workers also have a reason to fear If Rahul seriously internalises the philosophy in the Gita he might go in the path of renunciation and come to the conclusion that Modi’s victories were for the good and BJP’s gains in other states would be for the good He is responsible for nothing and need not do anything to turn Congress’ fortune for it was never his nor would ever remain attached to him As the well-known precis of the Bhagwad Gita has it: "Whatever happened was good Whatever is happening is good Whatever will happen will also be good You need not have any regrets for the past Do not worry for the future Live in present What of yours has gone to make you cry You came empty-handed and you will go empty-handed Which is yours today belonged to someone else yesterday will belong to someone else tomorrow All these things which give you happiness is the reason of sorrow What did you bring with you that you have lost What did you create which is now destroyed What you have taken you have taken only from here What was given was given only from here What is yours today was someone else’s yesterday will be someone else’s tomorrow Change is the law of the universe" By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: August 4 2017 10:52 am Sana Khan says that she still can’t believe that a normal hug with Salman Khan was trending Related News Salman Khan and Sana Khan hugging at the red carpet of a TV awards ceremony in Mumbai recently was in the limelight for all the wrong reasons When fans on social media noticed that Bollywood’s Bhaijaan was close-fisted and seemed to be smiling in a shy manner they started to call the hug ‘awkward’ This seems to have infuriated the former Bigg Boss contestant who said in an interview to HT “I still can’t believe that a normal hug was trending trolling and rolling People just blew it out of proportion because Salman had a closed fist and some dumb people even called it an awkward hug” On whether her backless attire made Salman uncomfortable Sana quipped “Who am I to make him feel uncomfortable It’s stupid to put somebody down by saying such a nasty thing and showing me in a wrong light It’s not as if I went to hug him and he didn’t recognise me Couldn’t it be somebody’s style Maybe he hugs like that I don’t know I think the best person [whom] to ask this would be Salman Also He has been in the industry for over 25 years so don’t think backless even matters to him… he has seen more than that (laughs) Let’s not talk like a five-year-old and make all this sound so big” Sana Khan who also appeared with Salman Khan in the film Jai Ho is furious that people are calling this a forced hug too She says “I’m not a psychopath to hug somebody if the person doesn’t want to talk to me I’m not someone who makes people stand and keep talking and falling on their lap I am on good
