Nashik: Two farmers dump their onion produce as prices fell

Two distressed farmers in Satana town of Nashik district on Thursday dumped their onions on road to protest against a steep fall in the wholesale price of one of their key crops.

The two farmers, Ravindra Birari and Prashant Mahajan, took the extreme step after they were offered a meager amount of Rs 1.5 per kilogram for their onions, while the production cost of the crop was Rs 9 per kg.

“I have thrown my 17 quintal onion on road to mark my protest after the Agricultural Produce Market Committee offered me the rate of Rs 1.50 per kg for the onion,” said Birari.

“How can we sell it at such a low price? It is affecting our financial situation. We cannot sustain ourselves by selling onions at this rate,” said Mahajan, another farmer.

Only recently a distressed farmer from Maharashtra had sent Rs 1,064 he earned after selling 750 kg onions to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund (PMRF).

It is worth stating that the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 7 approved the Agriculture Export Policy-2018 with an aim to double farmers’ income by 2022. (ANI)

Gehlot, Pilot in Delhi as Rahul to pick new Rajasthan CM

Jaipur: Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and state Congress chief Sachin Pilot reached New Delhi on Thursday to meet party President Rahul Gandhi, who will finalise the name of the new Chief Minister.

With Gehlot and Pilot strong contenders for the post, Gandhi would take the final call, Congress leaders said.

Congress observer K.C. Venugopal and state-in-charge Avinash Pandey were here on Wednesday to attend a Congress Legislature Party meeting of the newly-elected MLAs, who were to give their views on their choice of Chief Minister.

The meeting continued for around eight hours but no consensus could be reached.

Eventually, it was decided that Gandhi would take the final call.

Google Doodle tells why you shouldn’t miss Thursday’s meteor showers

New Delhi: After 9 p.m. on Thursday , you should be able to watch the best Geminid meteor showers to Earth ever and Google has made a Doodle just to make you aware of what a celestial show you could miss if you do not look up at the sky at the right time.

“If the weather is clear, 2018 should be the best year ever to watch the Gemenides — so named because they seem to originate from the constellation Gemini,” Google said.

To experience the celestial show, you do not need to have a telescope or binoculars. Although the showers should be visible to naked eyes after 9 p.m. on Thursday, they are likely to peak after midnight with as many as 120 meteors per hour.

For a better view, get as far away from city lights as possible, face South, and remember to dress warmly as you enjoy one of the greatest shows on — or above — earth, recommends Google.

First discovered via satellite data 35 years ago, an asteroid called “3200 Phaethon” is responsible for bringing the spectacular Geminid meteor showers to Earth’s atmosphere each December.

With each passing year since the mid-1800s, the proliferation of yellowish streaks of light in the night-time sky have grown more intense.

The so-called “rock comet” came within 10.2 million km of Earth this past December, although last year’s supermoon made it harder to appreciate the celestial light show.

That won’t be a factor this year, Google said.

The cosmic dust may have resulted from a crash with another flying object, but there’s little danger of any Geminids landing on earth as it normally disintegrates in the earth’s atmosphere.

The Doodle on Thursday follows the Geminids’ path through Earth’s atmosphere as it lights up the sky through a slideshow.

As Phaethon’s orbit leads it near the sun, the extreme heat causes it to fracture and leaves a trail of debris in its orbital path.

Every December, Earth’s orbit leads us through the trail of 3200 Phaethon and its debris crashes into our atmosphere at 127,000 kms per hour.

Man sets self ablaze outside Kerala Secretariat

[India] (ANI): A 49-year-old man allegedly in an inebriated state set himself on fire outside Kerala government Secretariat in Palayam area of the city during Thursday wee hours.

The victim, identified as Venugopalan Nair, doused himself in some flammable liquid and then lit his clothing outside the Secretariat, the local police said. He was immediately rushed to the nearby Trivandrum Medical College Hospital for the treatment.

Nair is said to be in a critical state and is under observation in the Intense Care Unit. The incident took place at around 1:30 am in the morning near the BJP’s venue of protest against restrictions on women’s entry into Sabarimala temple. Police are yet to ascertain the reason behind the victim’s extreme step.

BJP, however, alleges that Nair was Lord Ayyappa’s devotee and was upset because of the ongoing row over the ban on women of a particular age entering Sabarimala temple.

BJP’s state unit president, P Sreedharan Pillai had on Friday had announced a protest outside Kerala Secretariat over Sabarimala temple issue. The protest which will continue for 14 days is expected to see the party members from each of 14 districts coming to Thiruvananthapuram to protest each day.

Some of the demands of the BJP include lifting the ban on the restrictions over the movement of female devotees in Sabarimala temple and stringent action against the police officials for allegedly filing a false case against K Surendran, the party’s general secretary.

A string of protests has been witnessed in the state after the Supreme Court’s verdict of allowing women of all age groups to enter the Lord Ayappa shrine. Female devotees in the age bracket of 10 to 50 years have not yet succeeded in offering prayer at the shrine even after the Apex Court’s decision. (ANI)

जब गूगल पर सर्च करते हैं Idiot, तो सामने आ जाती है अमेरिका के प्रेसिडेंट की फोटो; गूगल ने बताया ऐसा किस वजह से होता है




गैजेट डेस्क। गूगल पर Idiot सर्च करने पर अमेरिका के राष्ट्रपति डोनाल्ड ट्रंप की फोटो आ जाती हैं। ऐसे में अमेरिकी सांसदों ने इस पर आपत्ति जताते हुए गूगल के CEO सुंदर पिचाई से पूछा कि आखिर ऐसा क्यों होता है? दरअसल गूगल पर Idiot टाइप करने पर सबसे ऊपर ट्रंप की जो फोटो दिखती है, वो बेबीस्पिटल ब्लॉग साइट की है। इस पर डोनाल्ड ट्रंप को बार-बार इडियट कहा गया है। इस ब्लॉग साइट ने डोनाल्ड ट्रंप के खिलाफ कई लेख लिखे हैं।

इस सर्च से जुड़े सवाल पर सुंदर पिचाई ने बताया कि गूगल सर्च इंजन को इस तरह डिजाइन किया गया है कि वो खुद से रिजल्ट शो करता है। इसमें किसी का हस्तक्षेप नहीं है। जब कोई यूजर कीवर्ड डालता है तो वो एल्‍गोरिथम के आधार पर उस वेबपेज और फोटो को खोजता है। जब किसी शब्‍द को बार-बार सर्च किया जाता है, तब सर्च इंजन उस कीवर्ड को लोकप्रिय की श्रेणी में शामिल कर लेता है।

पहले ऐसी खबरें आई थी कि ट्रंप गूगल सर्च में अमेरिकी राष्ट्रपति की गलत छवि बनाने पर कंपनी के खिलाफ कार्रवाई कर सकते हैं। उन्होंने कहा था कि जब से पद संभाला है, मीडिया हमेशा मेरे खिलाफ खबरें चलाता है। ट्रंप ने इसके लिए सीधे गूगल को जिम्मेदार ठहराया था।

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Google search results for “Trump News” shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me &amp; others, so that almost all stories &amp; news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative &amp; Fair Media is shut out. Illegal? 96% of….</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1034456273306243076?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 28, 2018</a></blockquote>
