Govt officials among 140 sued over haor flooding

first_imgA case has been filed against 140 people, including relief and disaster management secretary Shah Kamal, for their alleged involvement in ‘irregularities’ in implementing haor (marshland) embankment projects in the district.Abdul Haque, general secretary of Sunamganj district bar association, filed the case with Sunamganj special judge’s court on Thursday.Taking the cognizance of the case, the court ordered the Ant-Corruption Commission (ACC) to investigate the allegation.Fifteen officials of Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB), four union parishad chairmen, 31 union parishad members and one female union parishad member were among the accused.On 2 July, the ACC filed a case against 61 people, including 15 officials of BWDB for their irregularities in implementing haor embankment projects.According to the first information report (FIR), the BWBD officials in collusion with each other gave clearance to the contractors violating the basic contract rules to continue the unfinished works of 84 packages of fiscal 2015-16 without calling new tenders in fiscal 2016-17.The contractors did not start works on nine packages out of 160 and completed partial works of the remaining 151 packages, paving the way to plunder money from the future haor projects and thus caused huge losses to famers.The FIR said the BWDB took a 6.5-km embankment project in 2011 to prevent flashflood in Sunamganj. The project was supposed to be completed in 2015, but its time was extended up to June 2019 due to delay in launching the project.last_img read more

KMC issues notices to owners of 57 old and dilapidated buildings

first_imgKolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has given notices to the owners of 57 old and dilapidated buildings after they fail to maintain the structure.The KMC had issued notices asking them to take steps to repair them. The civic authorities have identified around 1,500 old and dilapidated buildings that need immediate repair. All these buildings are tenanted. The KMC will now give hearing to the owners and if they fail to take up the work, the KMC will auction the properties to find out builders and new buildings will be constructed with proper rehabilitation of the tenants. If the owners agree, then the structures will be pulled down to make room for the new ones with proper rehabilitation of the tenants. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe KMC had put up billboards all over the city asking owners of building that are more than 50 years old to get the health of the structures examined by structural engineers. Billboards were put up in front of old and dilapidated structures.It may be mentioned that 20 people died when portions of an old structure fell on them in the city. The civic authorities had asked the tenants to vacate the premises but flouting the KMC order, they continued to live in the premises and faced the consequences.

As the buildings are not maintained properly, the waterproofing on the roof has been totally destroyed. As the rain water cannot pass, the roof look like a pond and as the top of the building becomes heavy it collapses. The KMC has so far identified more than 2,000 dilapidated buildings all over the city. Most of the buildings are situated in the areas under Borough II, III, IV, V, VII and IX.The problem has risen with the buildings whose owners could not be traced. Along the river Hooghly, there are many buildings whose owners have died and their descendents could not be traced. Civic officials said if some of the old and dilapidated buildings are not pulled down before monsoon sets in, then there will be the risk of people getting killed due to building collapse.last_img read more

An egg a day can reduce risk of stroke

first_imgConsuming an egg – nutrient-rich source of high quality protein – per day may lead to a 12 per cent reduction in risk of stroke, a new research shows. One large egg boasts six grams of high-quality protein and antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, found within the egg yolk, as well as vitamins E, D, and A, the study said.“Eggs do have many positive nutritional attributes, including antioxidants, which have been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. They are also an excellent source of protein, which has been related to lower blood pressure,” said lead researcher Dominik Alexander of the EpidStat Institute, Michigan, US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor the study, the team conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies dating back between 1982 and 2015. They evaluated relationships between egg intake and coronary heart disease in 2,76,000 participants and stroke in 3,08,000 participants.“The study underscores prior research, showing the lack of a relationship between eggs and heart disease and now suggests a possible beneficial effect of eating eggs on risk of stroke,” added Tia M Rains, Interim Executive Director of the Egg Nutrition Center – the scientific research arm of the American Egg Board. The findings were published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.last_img read more

Learn more The Monterey Car Week auctions left the collector car world in a state of shock. Sales totals were expected to be similar to 2018 when 850 cars sold for US$370 million but when the hammer fell for the final time in Monterey, just 770 cars had fetched $245 million – a shortfall of 80 cars and $125 million, or 34 percent down.While there was no $48.4 million Ferrari 250 GTO this year, all the major yardsticks were down considerably – market analysis from Hagerty showed sell-through rates dropped from 62 percent in 2018 to 58 percent in 2019, and the the average price fell from $436,849 to $319,610.Just why sales fell so dramatically is still just speculation, though David Undercoffler at Forbes puts a plausible argument that changes to Section 1031 of the US tax code could be a major factor in the equation.Another key factor is the generational change we have been discussing for several years. The massive baby boomer generation prefers the poster cars of its youth, and as it is being replaced by newer generations, the new money is going to newer cars. With baby boomers (born 1946 to 1964) now aged 55 to 75, and beginning to sell off their cars, the prices of their poster cars are set for an increase in supply and a decrease in demand, so prices will fall.Regardless, most readers will have their favorite cars and hence the overall state of the market is of little relevance compared to the prices fetched by your particular favorites, so what follows is a car-by-car illustration of the 120 highest bid cars of Monterey 2019. As you’ll see, roughly half of those bids were not considered high enough to be accepted, resulting in a “no sale.”No Sale | 1954/1959 Ferrari 0432M 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL GullwingBrian Henniker / Gooding & Company 1966 FERRARI 275 GTSMecum High Bid: $675,000Auction House: RM-Sotheby’sEstimate: from $800,000 to $1,000,000Official Auction PageNo Sale | 1963 Shelby 289 Cobra DragonSnake 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4Somer Hooker / NewAtlas.com Auction House: Gooding & CompanyEstimate: from $6,000,000 to $8,000,000Official Auction Page$5,100,000 | 1960 Porsche 718 RS 60 Werks 1962 Aston Martin DB4 ‘SS Engine’ Series IVRM-Sotheby’s 1959 Bentley S1 Continental Drophead Coupe by Park WardRM-Sotheby’s Auction House: MecumEstimate: from $1,100,000 to $1,400,000Official Auction PageNo Sale | 2019 McLaren Senna 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Alloy by ScagliettiMo Satarzadeh / RM-Sotheby’s 1953 Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 CM Superflow IVSomer Hooker / NewAtlas.com Auction House: RM-Sotheby’sEstimate: from $21,000,000 to $23,000,000Official Auction PageNo Sale | 1939 Porsche Type 64 1952 ALLARD J2 ROADSTERMecum 1995 Ferrari F50Jorge A.

Bitcoin Core escapes a collapse from a DenialofService vulnerability

first_imgA few days back, Bitcoin Core developers discovered a vulnerability in its Bitcoin Core software that would have allowed a miner to insert a ‘poisoned block’ in its blockchain. This would have crashed the nodes running the Bitcoin software around the world. The software patch notes state, “A denial-of-service vulnerability (CVE-2018-17144) exploitable by miners has been discovered in Bitcoin Core versions 0.14.0 up to 0.16.2.” The developers further recommended users to upgrade any of the vulnerable versions to 0.16.3 as soon as possible. CVE-2018-17144: The denial-of-service vulnerability The vulnerability was introduced in Bitcoin Core version 0.14.0, which was first released in March 2017. But the issue wasn’t found until just two days ago, prompting contributors of the codebase to take action and ultimately release a tested fix within 24 hours. In a report by The Next Web, “The bug relates to its consensus code. It meant that some miners had the option to send transaction data twice, causing the Bitcoin network to crash when attempting to validate them. As such invalid blocks need to be mined anyway, only those willing to disregard block reward of 12.5BTC ($80,000) could actually do any real damage.” Also, the bug was not only in the Bitcoin protocol but also in its most popular software implementation. Some cryptocurrencies built using Bitcoin Core’s code were also affected. For example, Litecoin patched the same vulnerability on Tuesday. However, the bitcoin is far too decentralized to be brought down by any single entity. TNW also states, “While never convenient, responding appropriately to such potential dangers is crucial to maintaining the integrity of blockchain tech – especially when reversing transactions is not an option.” This vulnerability discovery, however, was a great escape from the Bitcoin collapse. To read about this news in detail, head over to The Next Web’s full coverage.
