Nepals Pashupatinath temple reveals assets for first timeNepals Pashupatinath temple reveals assets for first time

first_imgKathmandu: Nepal’s iconic Pashupatinath temple owns 9.276 kg gold, 316 kg silver and Rs 120 crore cash, according to a report made public for the first time by a committee formed to study the assets of the country’s most revered and the richest Hindu shrine. According to a probe panel formed by Pashupati Area Development Trust to inquire the income of the temple, the revenue in gold and silver cover the period of 56 years from 1962 to 2018. This is the first time we are making public the report on the assets of Pashupati Area Development Trust, the trust’s Executive Director Ramesh Upreti was quoted as saying by the Kathmandu Post.

The actual value of the treasures stored in the main temple of Pashupatinath, however, is not included in the report as the Supreme Court had on December 24, 2009, asked authorities not to open its coffers. The 5th century Pashupatinath Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Kathmandu dating back to 400 AD. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and several of his Cabinet colleagues visited the temple during their visit to Nepal.

But due to inadequate evidence, we have not been able to bring them under the trust, said Thapa, expressing concern that land plots belonging to the trust in various places have been encroached upon. Of the total registered land, the trust has leased 1,161 ropanis (59 hectares) to Tribhuvan International Airport and a golf course for 99 years at an annual rent of Rs 5 million a year. Similarly, the trust has leased 17 ropanis of land to five-star hotel Hyatt Regency in Bouddha. In Gothathar, the trust has 534 ropanis (27 hectares) of land which the government had registered under it’s name in 1998. It had acquired 1,505 ropanis (76.5 hecatres) of land near the temple between 2002 and 2013. Padip Dhakal, member secretary at the trust, said Wednesday announcement is the first step towards making public the temple’s assets.last_img read more

Paralympian and politician Michelle Stilwell cant find gold medal in her officeParalympian and politician Michelle Stilwell cant find gold medal in her office

first_imgVICTORIA – Former paralympian and politician Michelle Stilwell says one of her gold medals has gone missing from an office at British Columbia’s legislature.The former cabinet minister says when she moved offices following last May’s provincial election a box containing one of her world championship gold medals disappeared.Stilwell says in a statement she kept the medal in her office from her time as a wheelchair athlete to show visitors because she was proud of the achievement and wanted to share her accomplishments with others.Stilwell won six Paralympic gold medals in both basketball and track, in addition to being a nine time world champion.She is asking anybody with information that might help find the medal to come forward.Stilwell says the medal is priceless to her and represents the hard work and sacrifices she endured to earn the victory.“So far no one has reported the missing box or the medal and it’s unsettling given the fact that this is a secure building. I would like to put any concerns in my mind to rest that the box with my medal in it is somewhere in this building and someone knows about it,” she said in a statement issued on Wednesday.“It is a priceless and irreplaceable item and I worked very hard to earn it.”Stilwell, who represents the Vancouver Island constituency of Parksville-Qualicum for the Liberals, announced her retirement from international competition last February.last_img read more

Boyle family captivity shows the risks of going to dangerous countries ExpertsBoyle family captivity shows the risks of going to dangerous countries Experts

first_imgTORONTO – Globe-trotters who deliberately flout government travel advisories are actively placing themselves both in harm’s way and beyond the reach of most traditional rescue efforts if disaster strikes, security experts said Saturday.The case of a Canadian man held in captivity in Afghanistan for five years highlights the many risks of venturing into countries where the government has little recourse for helping its citizens.Joshua Boyle and his American wife Caitlan Coleman were abducted in October 2012 and held in captivity for five years by the Haqqani Network, a group linked to the Taliban. The couple gave birth to four children and endured the slaying of one of them before being rescued by Pakistani commandos on Wednesday.Security advisers say the length of time the family spent in captivity is not surprising given Canada’s official stance on negotiating with terrorist organizations as well as the limited intelligence resources available to government officials.Security consultant David Hyde said Canada telegraphs its ability to help citizens through its travel advisories, which groups countries into four categories. Afghanistan joins nations such as Iraq and North Korea in the class of destinations that Canada suggests avoiding entirely.Those who opt not to heed the warnings, he said, place the government in a difficult position by forcing them to try to intervene in areas where they’re poorly equipped to do so.“There’s an official posture that we don’t do this, but of course we care, and we will try to bring forward information to facilitate the release,” Hyde said in a telephone interview. “Behind the scenes, the government gets very involved with a wide variety of interactions to try and lead towards some kind of repatriation.”The Canadian government did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but has consistently stated that it will not negotiate with or pay ransomed to terrorists.Hyde said many western countries adopt this position, fearing that leniency on this point will make its citizens more likely targets for abduction when travelling abroad.But in cases where citizens run afoul of “bad actors,” Hyde said Canada will typically make use of whatever resources are at their disposal.This can include tapping into local intelligence contacts, which Hyde said are typically scarce in countries with strong travel advisories.An alternative approach, he said, is to work with other countries who may have a more robust network in place, he said.Such may have been the case in 2016 when Colin Rutherford, a Toronto resident vacationing in Pakistan to study historic sites, was rescued by helicopter after five years in Taliban custody.Canada credited the government of Qatar for playing a key part in Rutherford’s release, though it didn’t provide details of what the Middle East country’s involvement was.Eventually, however, Hyde said government resources run dry and the families of those in captivity are usually left to fend for themselves.Such was the case for Alberta journalist Amanda Lindhout, who along with Australian photographer Nigel Brennan was seized by masked men while covering a story in Somalia and held prisoner for more than a year.Lindhout’s mother has spoken in court of her family’s desperate attempts to raise funds to pay the US$2.5 million ransom the kidnappers were seeking. In the end, the Lindhout and Brennan families raised less than US$700,000.When government channels peter out, former RCMP officer and current security consultant Chris Mathers said some families will seek support from private companies to take up negotiations.Mathers said such companies use similar tactics to the government by relying on networks of local contacts to determine where captives are held and what their captors may be seeking.Even then, however, Mathers said the odds of recovering a kidnapping victim alive depend largely on the group that’s holding them prisoner.Groups whose actions are driven by ideology are more likely to kill their hostages, he said, while those seeking ransom and promising release are more likely to be affiliated with a local brand of organized crime.“If a person is kidnapped, their survival very much depends on where that group is located on that continuum,” he said. “Are they still in the ideological phase, or have they started to migrate towards criminality completely? The more they migrate towards criminality, the higher your chances of survival.”Mathers and Hyde agree that the best safeguard against such scenarios, however, is to heed Canada’s travel warnings and stay clear of regions where Ottawa has limited power to intervene.“What happened was tragic and awful for the people involved,” Hyde said of those who have been captured over the years. “But as someone making a conscious decision to go over there, you have to know that you’re going into an area where there really is no government protection. You’re really on your own.”last_img read more

Bill shelved by Nova Scotia legislature is no attempt to hide assetsofficialBill shelved by Nova Scotia legislature is no attempt to hide assetsofficial

first_imgHALIFAX – A church official says there was nothing “nefarious” about a proposed bill to reorganize the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth that was shelved by a committee of the Nova Scotia legislature after concerns from a lawyer representing sexual abuse victims.The local and private bills committee deferred the bill Tuesday after Halifax lawyer John McKiggan expressed concerns the bill would allow the archdiocese to divest itself of assets and place them into sub-corporations held by individual parishes.McKiggan, who represents hundreds of sexual assault victims who were abused by priests, said the change would make it harder for survivors to be able to receive “just and fair compensation for their injuries.”In an interview Wednesday, the chancellor of the archdiocese, deacon Bob Britton, said there is no attempt to hide assets from potential legal action.“First of all under the church rules the bishop can’t do that,” said Britton. “And if he did that then the question would be: How much longer would he be the bishop?”He said lawyers have also told the church that the courts have already determined that the archdiocese and individual parishes would be responsible for any future claims of sexual abuse.“The unintended consequences that are alluded to are simply not there,” he said.Britton said the intent of the bill is to recognize in civil law what is already a church reality in that each parish is an entity “unto itself,” while still joined with the archdiocese.“The claims of a kind of nefarious motives I assure you — they are not there,” said Britton.A lawyer for the archdiocese also told the committee that the bill’s intent wasn’t to shelter assets.The bill came before a committee that often deals with bills that are of local concern and are largely uncontroversial.But Premier Stephen McNeil said Tuesday the committee did the right thing in deferring the bill so the government can review it to ensure there are no unintended consequences that would result from it.In 2012, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Antigonish in Nova Scotia agreed to a $16-million compensation settlement for 125 confirmed and alleged victims of sexual abuse.The diocese put about 150 properties up for sale. More than 100 parishes were drained of their savings.last_img read more

Urgent measures needed to stop climate change trapping worlds poorest – UNUrgent measures needed to stop climate change trapping worlds poorest – UN

Without immediate action, climate change could have a disastrous impact for the world’s poorest people and reverse any gains made in poverty reduction, nutrition, health and education, according to the annual United Nations Human Development Report released today.The world’s 2.6 billion people living on less than $2 daily have contributed least to global emissions. But they are “paying a high price for the actions of others,” Claes Johansson of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), which prepared the report, told reporters in New York.“Therefore, developed nations have a historic responsibility to cut emissions, to climate-proof their growth and to invest in efforts that can help prevent catastrophic reversals in human development,” he added.Developing countries, in turn, must do their part to reduce their own emissions, but cannot do so without the help of wealthier nations, Mr. Johansson observed.The report – entitled “Fighting climate change: Human solidarity in a divided world” – was released as governments prepare for next week’s UN Climate Change Conference in Bali, Indonesia, where delegates are expected to negotiate a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol, a legally binding pact limiting greenhouse gas emissions that is due to expire in 2012.The potential toll on humans of climate change has been understated, the report concluded, pointing out that meteorological shocks such as droughts, floods and storms, whose intensity and frequency are only increasing, contribute greatly to poverty and inequality.“For millions of people, these are events that offer a one-way ticket to poverty and long-run cycles of disadvantage,” it said. A “twin track” approach merging mitigation efforts to limit global warming this century to under 2°C with bolstered global cooperation on adaptation measures was recommended.On mitigation, the report urged developed countries to slash greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 per cent of 1990 levels by 2050, and promote carbon taxation, more stringent cap-and-trade programmes and energy regulation, among others.If developed and developing nations are able to cut emissions overall by 50 per cent by 2050, “this gives us a 50-50 chance of avoiding dangerous climate change so this is an absolute minimum required reduction in emissions,” Mr. Johanssen noted.For rich nations to help poor ones achieve this goal, the report proposed a Climate Change Mitigate Facility at a cost of $25-$50 billion per year to finance development of low-carbon energy systems in developing nations. Regarding adaptation, the disparity in ability between rich and poor countries to respond to climate change are creating even larger inequalities both between and within countries, the report warned, calling on developed nations to make global warming a main priority in their international partnerships to reduce poverty.Currently, only $26 million has been spent multilaterally for adaptation measures, which the report noted is the equivalent of one week’s worth of spending on flood defences in the United Kingdom. 27 November 2007Without immediate action, climate change could have a disastrous impact for the world’s poorest people and reverse any gains made in poverty reduction, nutrition, health and education, according to the annual United Nations Human Development Report released today. read more

No 12 Ohio State tops Morehead State 8771 in Thad Mattas 500thNo 12 Ohio State tops Morehead State 8771 in Thad Mattas 500th

Freshman guard D’Angelo Russell (0) drives the lane during a game against Morehead State on Dec. 13 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 87-71.Credit: Muyao Shen / Lantern photographerIn his 500th game as a collegiate head coach, Thad Matta led the No. 12 Ohio State men’s basketball team to a 16-point victory over Morehead State for his 385th career win.Matta is 282-84 in his 11 seasons at OSU and 385-115 overall. He’s just 15 wins away from tying Fred Taylor for the most wins in program history.After the game, Matta said he feels like he’s coached even more than those 500 games over his career.“Yes it does, maybe a 1,000,” Matta said. “I didn’t know that (it was 500 games) until yesterday. I was joking when I gave the pregame speech today, I walked out and I said ‘god, it feels like the 500th time I have done that.’”After taking a 19-point lead at halftime, the Buckeyes (8-1) polished off a 87-71 victory over the Eagles (4-8) on Saturday afternoon at the Schottenstein Center.“We jumped out quick, got a quick lead on the team,” senior center Amir Williams said after the game. “And I think we just didn’t look back from there.”OSU turned the ball over six times in the first 8:13 of the second half, allowing Morehead State to cut the deficit to 14. By that time, the Eagles were still shooting 50 percent from 3-point range and 54.5 percent overall.Going into the game, OSU opponents had averaged a .359 shooting percentage this season.A layup from freshman guard Jae’Sean Tate followed by a jumper from senior guard Shannon Scott stopped the Eagles’ run, giving the home team a 66-48 lead with about nine minutes to play.With 6:51 to play, the Buckeyes held an 18-point advantage when Williams left the game with an injury before heading back to the locker room. At the time, Williams had registered 12 points on five-of-six shooting and nine rebounds.Williams returned to the OSU bench with 5:31 left in the game but didn’t re-enter the game.After the game, Williams said his injury was just a rolled ankle, and nothing he hasn’t gone through in the past.“A little sprain, nothing serious,” Williams said. “It’s nothing I haven’t dealt with before, so I’ll be practicing tomorrow.”Morehead State cut the lead to 78-65 with 2:26 to play, partially because of sloppy play from OSU. After turning the ball over just three times in the first half, the Buckeyes had turned it over 14 times in the final 20 minutes.Senior forward Sam Thompson said OSU’s mindset in the second half and increased intensity from the Eagles led to the higher number of turnovers.“They definitely turned up their pressure, that was big-time pressure,” Thompson said after the game. “But our minds just weren’t right. I think that they just didn’t press us much in the first half, and then we sort of came out with the first half mindset in the second half.”The teams traded baskets as the clock ticked past two minutes, and the Buckeyes extended the lead to 18 points with just 38 seconds remaining.Morehead State shot 62.5 percent in the second half, and ended up outscoring the Buckeyes, 43-40, after the break.Thompson said Matta was “not too happy” after the Eagles shot such a high percentage, and outscored his team, in the second half.“First of all, Morehead State’s a really good team, not taking anything away from them,” Thompson said. “We had a really good first half, and we sort of let our guard down in the second half. We didn’t have that same type of energy and intensity and execution in the second half on both sides of the floor.”Matta stressed that his guards have to take better care of the ball, and added the Buckeyes’ play in the second half wasn’t up to the standard that he expects.“D’Angelo (Russell) and Shannon can’t combine for 10 turnovers in a game and only nine assists. We were sloppy. We weren’t as sharp as we needed to be on really both ends,” Matta said. “We did some things that lead one to believe that we weren’t as tuned in as we needed to be.”OSU jumped out to an early 12-2 lead, but Morehead State kept it close for much of the first half, partially because of the play of redshirt-sophomore guard Corban Collins.Collins started off five-for-five from the field, including a four-of-four mark from beyond the 3-point line. He finished the first half with a game-high 14 points, but a late OSU run helped the Buckeyes to their big halftime lead.The Buckeyes’ leading scorer — freshman guard D’Angelo Russell — didn’t register a point through the first 16:31 of the game as OSU held just a nine-point advantage with 3:29 on the clock. Russell followed up two free throws with a 3-pointer just over a minute later before closing out the half with a mid-range jumper with just three seconds to play.Russell’s seven-point burst helped OSU to a 47-28 lead at the break as the Buckeyes opened and closed the first half with 12-2 runs.When the teams entered the locker room, Thompson had 11 points to lead OSU while Williams had 10 points and four rebounds.Williams said he has room to improve, but added that he came into the game hoping to help spark the Buckeyes from the start.“Still some errors to be corrected, but I just tried to get out to a good start,” he said. “Coach always tells me, and the players tell me as well, if I come out with energy it gets my teammates going as well, so I try to come out and play with as much energy as I can.”Russell and Thompson led OSU with 15 points apiece, while Tate and Williams each finished the game with 12 points. Russell led all players with seven assists and Williams’ nine rebounds were a game high, as were his five blocks.Thompson said Williams’ play inside helps set the tone for the rest of the team, especially on defense.“Amir does such a great job blocking shots, and we put a lot of pressure on him because our zone really funnels everything to him,” he said. “He’s always a big force in the middle, he’s always blocking shots and getting rebounds.”Collins led all players with 22 points as he made six of seven 3-point attempts.OSU is scheduled to return to the court on Wednesday against North Carolina A&T. That game is set to be played at Nationwide Arena in downtown Columbus at 7 p.m. read more

Another Baltimore Cop Out of Control…When Will It EndAnother Baltimore Cop Out of Control…When Will It End

first_imgBy Stephen Janis and Taya Graham, Special to the AFROA Baltimore police officer caught on cellphone video repeatedly punching an unarmed man is under indictment for felony assault by a Baltimore Grand Jury and turned himself in to authorities.The officer, identified as Arthur Williams, is facing charges of first degree and second-degree assault. He has also been charged with misconduct in office.Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said the felony assault charges stemmed from the officer’s alleged attempt to inflict serious bodily harm. She also said her office reviewed evidence in addition to the viral video of the assault.“I can tell you we don’t just consider what you all have viewed,” she said at a press conference Aug. 14.  “We consider a great deal more evidence.”Williams resigned from the department earlier this week.The incident is yet another scandal that has engulfed the beleaguered law enforcement agency which is already under a federal consent decree.The video of Williams made national headlines and prompted outrage in the community.“It really shocked me when I saw how they did that young man,” Michelle Sterrette, who witnessed the beating, told the AFRO.The video shows Williams engaging in a prolonged assault of Dashawn McGrier. Williams throws more than a dozen punches before taking McGrier to the ground and striking him on the head as McGrier bleeds from the mouth onto the sidewalk.Interim Police Commissioner Gary Tuggle called the video “disturbing” and mildly condemned the officer’s actions at a press conference Aug. 13.“My preliminary review of the public video is extremely disappointing to me, I don’t think there is any room for the activity we saw,” he said.But noticeably absent from the discussion is Mayor Catherine Pugh, who has not responded to multiple requests for comment.According to McGrier’s attorney Warren Brown, he sustained fractures to his jaw and ribs and remains hospitalized.At the Aug. 13 press conference Tuggle faced questions about Williams, who recently joined the force and was still on probation.  The city’s top cop confirmed that Williams was recognized as one of the top cadets of his academy class.Tuggle seemed hard pressed to explain how his agency, already under the increased scrutiny from a federal monitor tasked with overseeing compliance with a consent decree, could continue to find itself embroiled in controversies over officer conduct.“We want the community to know that these issues are not going to go unaddressed–when they arise we are going to address them.
