The Government has raised benefits under the Programme of Advancement through Health and Education (PATH) by 30 per cent. PATH is the Government’s flagship social intervention initiative, which is aimed at delivering benefits by way of cash grants to the most needy and vulnerable in the society. Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, said the increase will also move the base benefit from $400 to $600 per child each month. Story Highlights The Government has raised benefits under the Programme of Advancement through Health and Education (PATH) by 30 per cent.This follows Cabinet’s approval of increases in the 2017/18 benefit rates, which came into effect on June 1.Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, said the increase will also move the base benefit from $400 to $600 per child each month.He was speaking at a post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House on Wednesday (June 28).Senator Reid informed that a revised graduation strategy is to be implemented for PATH, which will require reapplication, and the replacement of mass recertification.The graduation strategy targets PATH beneficiaries, who are deemed able to sustain themselves and can therefore exit the programme.Additionally, starting in 2017, PATH families will be required to reapply after three and a half years of participation.Persons eligible for the programme after recertification will continue to receive cash grants.PATH is the Government’s flagship social intervention initiative, which is aimed at delivering benefits by way of cash grants to the most needy and vulnerable in the society.

Washington DC: The Moon and Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, may contain significantly more water ice than previously thought, according to a new analysis of data from NASA spacecraft. The potential ice deposits are found in craters near the poles of both worlds, according to the study published in the journal Nature Geoscience. On the Moon, “we found shallow craters tend to be located in areas where surface ice was previously detected near the south pole of the Moon, and inferred this shallowing is most likely due to the presence of buried thick ice deposits,” said Lior Rubanenko of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the US. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USIn the past, telescopic observations and orbiting spacecraft have found glacier-like ice deposits on Mercury, but as of yet not on the Moon. The new work raises the possibility that thick ice-rich deposits also exist on the Moon. The research may not only help resolve the question regarding the Moon’s apparent low ice abundance relative to Mercury, but it could also have practical applications. “If confirmed, this potential reservoir of frozen water on the Moon may be sufficiently massive to sustain long-term lunar exploration,” said Noah Petro, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) Project Scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in the US. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe poles of Mercury and the Moon are among the coldest places in our solar system. Unlike Earth, the spin axes of Mercury and the Moon are oriented such that, in their polar regions, the Sun never rises high above the horizon. Consequently, polar topographic depressions, such as impact craters, never see the Sun. For decades it has been postulated these so-called permanently shadowed regions are so cold that any ice trapped within them can potentially survive for billions of years. Previous observations of the poles of Mercury with Earth-based radar revealed a signature characteristic of thick, pure ice deposits. Later, MESSENGER spacecraft imaged these ice deposits. “We showed Mercury’s polar deposits to be dominantly composed of water ice and extensively distributed in both Mercury’s north and south polar regions,” said Nancy Chabot, instrument scientist for MESSENGER’s Mercury Dual Imaging System from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in the US. “Mercury’s ice deposits appear to be much less patchy than those on the Moon, and relatively fresh, perhaps emplaced or refreshed within the last tens of millions of years,” Chabot said. Previous radar and imaging studies of the Moon, whose polar thermal environments are very similar to those of Mercury, found only patchy, shallow ice deposits. The airless surfaces of Mercury and the Moon are scarred by many impact craters. These craters form when meteoroids or comets impact the surface. The team analysed simple craters that are formed by smaller, less energetic impactors. These depressions are held together by the strength of the surface dust layer, or regolith and tend to be more circular and symmetrical than large craters. The scientists exploited this inherent symmetry to estimate the thickness of ice trapped within simple craters. The study used elevation data obtained by MESSENGER and LRO to measure approximately 15,000 simple craters with diameters ranging from 2.5 kilometre (km) to 15 km on Mercury and the Moon. Researchers found that craters become up to 10 per cent shallower near the north pole of Mercury and the south pole of the Moon, but not the north pole of the Moon. The researchers concluded that the most probable explanation for these shallower craters is the accumulation of previously undetected thick ice deposits on both worlds. They found that the pole-facing slopes of these craters are slightly shallower than their equator-facing slopes, and that the shallowing is more significant in regions that promote ice stability because of Mercury’s orbit around the Sun. The topographic signal detected by the scientists is relatively more prominent in smaller simple craters, but does not preclude the possibility that ice may be more widespread in larger craters across the lunar pole.

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has asked the Centre not to revoke till April 15 the Person of Indian Origin (PIO) status of controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi’s daughter, who has moved a plea seeking grant of an Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) card.According to a Government of India notification of January 2015, all PIO card holders are deemed to be OCI card holders. However, when Qureshi’s daughter, Pernia Qureshi, applied for the OCI status, she was informed that she was ineligible as her mother and grand parents were Pakistani citizens. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Justice Vibhu Bakhru granted her the interim relief, saying she was an Indian citizen for 12 years before becoming a PIO card holder. He directed the ministries of Home Affairs and External Affairs and the Foreigner Regional Registration Office (FRRO) not to revoke her PIO/OCI card till the next date of hearing on April 15. The ministries, represented by central government standing counsel Anurag Ahluwalia, had contended that according to a provision in the Citizenship Act 1955, “no person, who is or had been a citizen of Pakistan, Bangladesh or such other country as the central government may, by notification in the official gazette, specify, shall be eligible for registration as an OCI card holder”. The government’s stand was opposed by Qureshi’s lawyers who contended that the provision was not applicable to her.

SAN FRANCISCO — CEO Mark Zuckerberg will kick off Facebook’s annual F8 conference Tuesday with what are expected to be more details about his new “privacy-focused” vision for the social network.He’ll also likely do his best to bat away Facebook’s growing array of critics, emboldened regulators and competitors. Zuckerberg and his lieutenant Sheryl Sandberg have apologized repeatedly over the past year for an array of mishaps over privacy, data misuse and security problems.Last week, the company said it is setting aside $3 billion to cover a possible fine from the Federal Trade Commission over privacy violations. Facebook has also suffered hacks, allowed hate speech and live-streamed mass-shooting horror.Zuckerberg is likely to focus on Facebook’s future by emphasizing private messaging, Facebook’s role in “communities,” and harnessing artificial intelligence to improve discourse.Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Press
The ship, which was chartered by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), also brought a WFP team that is part of a UN inter-agency mission that will conduct a rapid needs assessment of the humanitarian situation on the ground. The UN team will also evacuate the wounded and stranded migrants, and deliver up to 700 tons of food and blankets, kitchen sets and medical supplies.The WFP shipment of wheat flour, pulses, vegetable oil, and high-energy biscuits is the fourth time that the agency has sent food assistance to Misrata since 7 April, delivering a total of more than 1,600 tons of food aid to civilians trapped by the fighting that erupted several months ago between Government forces and rebel groups seeking the ouster of Muammar al-Qadhafi. WFP has chartered another vessel which is due to reach Misrata in the next few days carrying more food assistance and providing transport for other humanitarian partners.The agency also announced today that it is extending its regional emergency operation for North Africa for three more months until the end of August. The $100 million operation aims to assist 1.5 million people affected by the violence in Libya and neighbouring countries.WFP has also deployed experts on the ground in Libya to coordinate and strengthen logistics and telecommunications for the entire humanitarian community. A three-month special operation for the WFP-run UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) has already provided at least 15 flights between Malta, Cairo, Benghazi and Djerba.The air operation is currently facing a shortfall of close to $3 million and may have to end unless funds are mobilized, WFP warned.Also today, the UN-ordered panel investigating human rights abuses in Libya submitted its report, which states that Government forces have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity during the course of their crackdown on opposition forces. The three-member International Commission of Inquiry, dispatched by the UN Human Rights Council, called on the Government of Libya to immediately cease acts of violence against civilians and to thoroughly investigate all alleged violations.Meanwhile, diplomatic efforts to help resolve the crisis in Libya are continuing. Yesterday UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs B. Lynn Pascoe told the Security Council that the Secretary-General and his Special Envoy to Libya, Abdul Elah al-Khatib, the African Union and other stakeholders have been making every effort to narrow the differences between the parties and to begin a credible negotiating process. He noted that the parties remain sharply divided on how to start peace talks, with the Government adamant on a truce, including the cessation of an international bombing campaign, and the opposition demanding that Mr. Qadhafi and his family first relinquish power. The pro-democracy movement emerged in Libya in February following similar protests in Tunisia, Egypt and other countries across North Africa and the Middle East. 1 June 2011A ship carrying enough United Nations food assistance to feed 25,000 people for one month arrived in the besieged Libyan city of Misrata today, as the World Food Programme (WFP) voiced concern once again about dwindling food stocks in the strife-torn country.

Thirteen abstained.Cyprus will receive 10 billion euros in loans after its bloated banking sector threatened to destroy the economy.Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, insisted on making those holding large deposits in Cyprus’ biggest banks contribute to the rescue. That position was shared by the German opposition.All the rescue agreements involving euro countries need approval from the German Parliament.Although some in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s centre-right coalition are uneasy about bailouts, the main opposition parties so far have supported them.In separate votes Thursday, lawmakers approved by a similarly wide majority agreements to grant Ireland and Portugal seven years more years to pay their bailout loans — a move meant to ease the burden on their economies and pave the way for a quicker return to sustainable growth.
The United Nations stands ready to lend its support in response to the damage caused by an earthquake which struck Guatemala yesterday, a spokesperson for the world body’s Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, while also noting the UN chief’s sadness over the event.“The United Nations stands ready to lend its assistance to efforts already under way by the Guatemalan authorities to respond to humanitarian needs created by the disaster and to mobilize any international support needed for that response,” the spokesperson told a news briefing at UN Headquarters in New York.According to media reports, at least 48 people are dead, another 150 are injured and dozens are missing, with residents seeking safety in streets due to concerns over aftershocks on Thursday. The earthquake, reportedly measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale, struck off the coast of Guatemala near its border with Mexico on Wednesday, 7 November.The spokesperson added that the Secretary-General is saddened by the loss of life, and the damage to homes and infrastructure in Guatemala as a result of the earthquake. “He extends his sincere condolences to the Guatemalan government and people, particularly the families of those who have been killed or otherwise affected in this disaster,” the spokesperson said.
CINCINNATI — Andy Dalton is out for the season with a thumb injury suffered in the Bengals’ latest loss.Dalton hurt the thumb on his passing hand when he tried to recover a fumble in the second half of a 35-20 rout by the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

In Ohio State’s loss to Southern Cal last night, the theme seemed to be missed opportunity.“Our kids prepared extremely hard and played extremely hard and we just didn’t come up with enough of the things you need to do to win a ball game like that,” coach Jim Tressel said. “You need to score more than five points in the second half and they came up with plays on that last drive when they needed to and so they go home with the spoils.”OSU led the game 15-10 late in the fourth quarter, but gave up a hard-earned touchdown and two-point conversion in the last minute of play.Despite bouncing back from an early interception thrown by Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State was unable to take advantage of their opportunities on offense to win the big game.Pyror vs. Barkley, who stood up in the pressure?Leading up to the game, there was a lot of talk about how USC’s freshman quarterback Matt Barkley was going to handle the pressure of the atmosphere in a stadium like the ‘Shoe. Turns out, it was a record-breaking crowd of 106,033 fans in Ohio Stadium and Barkley seemed to handle just fine.Pryor, on the other hand, really wasn’t playing his game last night. The sophomore, who played a significant amount of last year’s game in southern California, gave up a quick interception on the first drive, which USC returned for a touchdown to lead early.At halftime, Pryor had thrown for 123 yards, leading Barkley, who had thrown for 105 yards. But in the second half, Pryor was virtually shut down and added only 54 yards to Barkley’s 90.Pryor was 11 for 25 with one interception and one sack; Barkley was 15 for 31 with one interception and two sacks. Pryor really didn’t stand out against Barkley the way that a veteran should on his own turf.“I think those two young quarterbacks played against two good defenses and those few good defenses brought a lot of pressure and I’m sure that both of them will learn a lot from the experience and that was a tough ball game, especially if you were a quarterback,” Tressel said.Red zone deficientWhile Ohio State isn’t exactly red zone deficient, they certainly make it there, but they just can’t capitalize on position.The Buckeyes had more than half their points come from outside of the end zone, with two field goals from Aaron Pettrey and a safety half way through the third quarter.The Bucks also struggled getting first downs. They had five first downs in the first quarter and then only five more the rest of the game. The offense had terrible trouble converting on important plays. The Buckeyes were four of 13 for third-down conversions.“We didn’t take advantage of our opportunities that the defense gave us,” said Jake Ballard, senior tight end and fourth Buckeye captain. “We just kept getting three and out. And you can’t do that when you get the ball.”Running game was missingIt has been no secret that USC has one of the deepest and most talented running back depth charts in college football, but with their performance last week, Dan Herron and Brandon Saine were expected to produce much more than they did last night.Herron carried the ball 18 times for 46 yards and a touchdown, while Saine carried the ball just once throughout the entire game, gaining two yrads. Pryor was OSU’s second highest rusher with a net gain of 36 yards on 10 carries. Kick returner Lamaar Thomas made a rare appearance in the backfield and ran for six yards in the fourth quarter.USC out-ran Ohio State 118 yards to 88.Defense stands strong despite lossOne positive that did come out of the game, was that the Ohio State defense really stepped up. The defensive line played an excellent game against the Trojans.“Our defense played extremely had and they came up with plays, they got us a turnover near mid-field and we didn’t cash in on it at all,” Tressel said. “They just kept playing, and I thought the punt unit did a great job of setting up good field position down in there and our defense made it ahrd for them to drive over the course of the game and they played hard, there’s no doubt.”The defensive tackles, captain Doug Worthington and Todd Denlinger combined for six tackles and a tackle-for-loss of four yards. Linebackers Ross Homan, Brian Rolle and Austin Spitler combined for 22 tackles, while Devon Torrence and Cameron Heyward both added sacks to the defensive statistics.“I’m really just physically drained and I know this whole team is just physically drained,” said senior captain Kurt Coleman, who added five tackles of his own. “We worked so hard and it’s just toughâ€¦we knew the ball was going to be in our court and we had to stop them on that last drive and we knew that and it’s just tough, man, I don’t know, it’s tough.”How do we bounce back and win the Big Ten?With a loss under their belts, it is now critical for Ohio State to win their conference. With a big game on the road against Penn State, and several tough games at home, how are the Buckeyes going to get themselves ready to take on the Big Ten?Spitler said that this was obviously a tough loss for the Buckeyes but that they can’t let that get them down.“Have to bound back, tough, and understand that we played a heck of a team and we’ve got a bright future,” Spitler said.Coleman said that he personally, and the team, still have a lot to strive for in the rest of the season and that this loss doesn’t mean the end of their season.“The best thing about this is it’s a nonconference game and we still have things to strive for and things we want to accomplish in the season. We want to win the Big Ten, so we have to regroup and we have to rebound from this,” Coleman said. “We cannot let this affect us at all. So me, myself, and I know the senior are going to really get everybody’s focus back because Toledo’s going to be a tough opponent, so we have to just regroup and get back to the drawing board and get after it.”
A further two reclaimers have been equipped with LASE Industrielle Lasertechnik’s 3D laser measurement system at Adani ports in Mundra, India. The system also includes a specific manager application, where a segmentation of multiple piles is shown as well as volume and weight information. A high reusability for further projects was concluded. The system for heap volume measurement determines information like e.g. volume, 3D profile, peaks by using 3D laser scanners from the LASE 3000D-S-13x Series, which are installed on top of a stacker/reclaimer machine. In total two machines have been equipped with laser scanners at Adani, where three piles can be measured simultaneously. The laser data information from both machines are shown within a manager application. Here all different heaps/piles are displayed clearly and a segmentation of the material is possible, too. To fulfil specific customer needs, weight measurement data will be also recognized within the manager application.Depending on the heap-size, one (or more) 3D-laser scanner is installed on a machine for the realisation. This scanner is ‘looking’ above from the machine on the heap and scans the heap profile. In connection with the current stacker position a 3-D image of the whole heap profile can be developed and compared to a ‘0-profile’ within the application software, which has been taken during the calibration. Out of the obtained data the LASE CEWS application software calculates the profile and the volume of the heap precisely. The current filling level of each single field is transferred to the process control system, which recognises the removal/supply of material automatically.Increasing numbers of customers need to automate their stackers and reclaimers within raw material stockyards. In order to drive the machines automatically, it is necessary to know the profile of the piles on both sides of each machine. For this purpose 3D laser measurement technology is the most suitable technology.The system can be operated intuitively due to user-oriented dialogue control and configuration wizards for simple commissioning. The software analyses the raw data and divides the measured volume into a grid pattern. Then the current filling level of each single field is transferred to the process control system. By this information the process control system recognizes the removal/supply of material automatically. Important state messages are logged and clearly displayed for additional documentation purposes. For integration in production plants all common interfaces are available, too.The application has a high versatility and can be used for volume and profile measurements in several types of bulk material storages. This specific software derives from the product line CEWS Bulk Volume Module.
You will definitely want to take this one with more than a few grains of salt, but the occasionally reliable Taiwanese publication DigiTimes has a couple of bold predictions regarding upcoming Apple products. They say Cupertino will give their entire product line an overhaul in 2012, and that there will be two iPads released next year.As insane as this report sounds at first, it could make some sense. When you break down the individual categories, it isn’t inconceivable that they could all be due for an update soon:The iPhone is the most obvious example, and we would all be shocked if Apple didn’t show us a new external design in the iPhone 5 (or iPhone 6?) next year. Those rumors we heard earlier this year — like a larger screen, a thinner tear-drop design, and a wider capacitive home button — could still be in the cards. At the very least, we should see it slim down soon. The iPhone 4S is still considered to be a thin phone, but by this time next year it might be looking chunky.A separate DigiTimes report goes into more detail about the iPad. It says that we will see a moderate upgrade during the expected March release slot. But they go on to add that the “real” iPad 3 won’t show its face until the second half of 2012.The report says that the first iPad would be thinner than the iPad 2, and would offer longer battery life. They don’t specify what would differentiate the “real” one, but an A6 processor and a Retina display are the most obvious ways for the tablet to get a major update. I’d take this one with the most grains of salt. DigiTimes also predicted that we’d see two iPads in 2011, and know how that turned out.If we’re going to include iPods in the blanket statement that “everything” is getting updated, then the iPod touch would be the most interesting to watch. There were whispers this summer that Apple would bring a 3G-capable iPod touch to market, but that didn’t happen. If they could ever force persuade the wireless carriers to go for that, it could provide a compelling way for customers to cut down their phone bills. It would basically be a data-only iPhone, and VoIP could be used for calls. Other potential iPod touch feature updates would include an A5 processor and Siri.Moving on to Macs, it would make sense for us to see some changes there too. The MacBook Pro has had the same external design since late 2008, the iMac since late 2009, and the MacBook Air got a moderate external refresh last year. If the MacBook Pro is going to lose its optical drive and get thinner (it should happen at some point), then it would probably either merge with the Air line, or the Airs would get even thinner. You can’t have two separate product lines that are nearly identical.As for the rest: Apple TV could get the rumored upgrade to a full TV set (the iTV?), the Mac Mini could get more miniature, and the Mac Pro could be sent to the Mac graveyard.Do I expect all of this to happen? I would say not in one year. If we’re lumping the next two or three years together, we could see most of these changes, with a few surprises to boot. 2011 has largely been a year of moderate Apple updates, so don’t completely rule out some big updates soon. But considering the source’s hit-or-miss track record, along with the inefficiency of trying to overhaul everything at once, I wouldn’t bet on its all happening next year.via DigiTimes
