Enrollment of Indian Students in US Engineering Colleges Declines by 21 Per Cent

first_imgA report from National Foundation for American Policy shows the number of Indian students enrolled in graduate level programme in computer science and engineering in the United States has declined by 21 percent from 2016-2017.The report indicated that decline is attributed to US president Donald Trump’s restrictive visa and work policies. Last year, US has made H-1B visas rules more tougher which has affected the prospects of attracting foreign students making a significant contribution to the US economy. The H-1B visas allow US companies to hire foreign talent for temporary employment. The non-immigrant workers are selected through a lottery system. Indian IT companies are the largest users of this type of visa applications.Read it at India Related Itemslast_img read more

Cyprus UN envoy says negotiations should start where they ended

“It’s our view that the process should continue on the basis of what has taken place so far,” Alexander Downer, Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Cyprus, told journalists in New York. “We don’t want to see the process start all over again when so much has been achieved over the past 18 or so months.” In 2008, Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat and Greek Cypriot leader Dimitris Christofias committed themselves to working towards “a bi-communal, bi-zonal federation with political equality, as defined by relevant Security Council resolution.” Following the last round of talks on 30 March, Mr. Talat and Mr. Christofias said important progress had been made in the areas of governance and power-sharing, European Union (EU) matters and the economy. Last week, Mr. Talat was voted out of office, replaced by Dervis Eroglu. Mr. Downer said today that both he and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon have since spoken to Mr. Eroglu, as well as to Ahmet Davutoglu, the Foreign Minister of Turkey. “We would like to see the progress continue from there, for the two leaders to build on the process made.” Noting that the negotiations are hosted by the UN on its grounds, Mr. Downer emphasized that he hoped they would come to a successful conclusion before too long. “This is not an indefinite process. This is a process that needs to move forward – at least to move forward with a good deal of momentum.” While in New York, Mr. Downer has also met with senior UN political and peacekeeping officials and the head of key countries as well as other interested parties. “A basis for these negotiations is to create a united federal system in Cyprus and I’ve been impressed with what has been achieved. It has taken time. But I’ve been impressed,” Mr. Downer said. A UN peacekeeping mission, known as UNFICYP, has been in place on the island since 1964 after an outbreak of inter-communal violence. 27 April 2010Negotiations on the unification of Cyprus should continue where they left off, the United Nations envoy tasked with steering the talks said today as he made his first public remarks since the election of a new Turkish Cypriot leader. read more


Security Council debates closer links between multilateral organizations in Europe and Asia

His message of support came at the start of a ministerial-level debate in the Security Council, focusing on the role of the three bodies – whose member countries include Russia, China, former members of the Soviet Union, as well as India and Pakistan – in bolstering peace and security, particularly with countering terrorist threats.Mr. Guterres outlined the “unprecedented threat” posed by intolerance, violent extremism and terrorism, including cyber-terrorism which, he said, is constantly evolving and affects every country. The UN, he continued, has a comprehensive framework for action, provided by the Organization’s Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, and related Security Council resolutions.Address root causes, promote gender equality, respect human rightsWhilst security measures to pursue and dismantle terrorist groups are “vital”, they must be complemented by efforts to identify and address root causes, counselled the Secretary-General, such as fear and hopelessness, while always respecting human rights: “We must reinforce the social compact, including the provision of basic services and opportunities, particularly for young people. Most recruits to terrorist groups are between 17 and 27 years old. We need to provide paths that offer a sense of hope and purpose to our young men and women, including education, training and jobs”. The frequent subjugation of women and girls, which is a “foundational” purpose of many extremist and terrorist groups, was raised by Mr. Guterres, who said that gender equality and engaging women and girls must be central to efforts to prevent and counter terrorism: “Terrorist groups share an agenda that is authoritarian, intolerant and frequently misogynistic. Our efforts to counter terrorist ideology must be founded on respect for the dignity and human rights of all”. Turning to the specific role of the three organizations at the centre of Wednesday’s debate, Mr. Guterres noted that countries need to cooperate in order to meet cross-border challenges such as the return and relocation of foreign terrorist fighters, and include private sector and civil society partners in these efforts. The UN chief stressed that the UN is strengthening its institutional links with each of them, establishing frameworks for joint activities, and collaboration on capacity-building assistance. He singled out the UN Joint Plan of Action for the Implementation of the Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy in Central Asia as showing what can be achieved with collective action, leadership and political will.Sergei Lavrov, Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs, said that more needs to be done to work together with regional and sub-regional organizations, such as the three bodies under discussion at the debate (the CSTO, CIS and SCO). These organizations, he said, have a “rich experience of fighting terrorism and contribute to stability in the Eurasian continent. Their activity is a gauge of security of their Member States, and the effective counter-terrorism efforts they undertake help noticeably to stabilize the situation in Central Asia”.Mr. Lavrov expressed concern at ongoing recruitment by various terror groups in the region, and noted that the CSTO is working to close recruitment channels and illegal migration, as well as paying close attention to the role of the internet in spreading extremist ideologies. He welcomed the commitment from all three organizations to further broadening cooperation in the area of combating terrorism with the UN, in order to maintain regional and international peace and security.China’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Wang Yi, said that counter-terrorism is a shared responsibility for all countries, in a world where terrorism, separatism, and extremism are “rampant”, and are becoming increasingly pervasive and home-grown.This requires that international cooperation against terrorism, continued Mr. Wang, be strengthened and not weakened. No country should link terrorism to a particular country, ethnicity or religion, he added.Promoting political settlements is, he said, the best option for addressing “hot spot” issues, and ensuring that different civilizations and religions live in harmony, and mutual respect. read more


Ohio State field hockey faces off against two top15 opponents

Then-sophomore forward/midfielder Maddy Humphrey during a game against St. Louis on Aug. 28, 2015. OSU won 5-0.Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz | Oller ReporterThe Ohio State field hockey team is looking to add to its three game winning streak this weekend as they take on No. 15 Northwestern at home before traveling to compete against No. 6 Louisville. OSU vs. Northwestern History Northwestern heads into Friday’s competition having won four of its last five games, including an 8-0 victory over Colgate.  Isabel Flens, who has six goals and four assists, and Dominique Masters, owner of four goals and two assists, return as the Wildcats’ top scorers, leading an offensive line that averages 3.83 goals and 21.8 shots per game. Goalie Lindsey von der Luft maintains a .806 save percentage, along with a 1.19 goals-against average. 11/05/15: Northwestern 4, Ohio State 0 (Bloomington, Ind.)10/23/15: Northwestern 2, Ohio State 0 (Columbus, Ohio)10/25/14: Northwestern 4, Ohio State 1 (Evanston, Ill.)11/07/13: Northwestern 2, Ohio State 3 (Columbus, Ohio)11/01/13: Northwestern 5, Ohio State 0 (Evanston, Ill.) The Wildcats lead the series with a 30-27-2 record, with Friday’s match marking the 60th time the teams have faced off since 1981. The Buckeyes have lost the last three games against Northwestern, most recently in a shutout loss in the quarterfinal of the 2015 Big Ten tournament. Previous matchups include: 10/11/15: Louisville 1, Ohio State 0 (Columbus, Ohio)09/23/14: Louisville 6, Ohio State 3 (Louisville, Ky.)10/01/13: Louisville 6, Ohio State 3 (Columbus, Ohio)10/22/12: Louisville 4, Ohio State 3 OT (Louisville, Ky.)10/04/11: Louisville 1, Ohio State 2 (Columbus, Ohio) “We’re really going to have to use each other, let the ball do the work and just really give them hard shots,” Humphrey said. “Probably the best shots we’ll have to hit at a goalie this year because they have such a strong defense.” The Scarlet and Gray host Northwestern on Friday, Sept. 16 at 3 p.m. The team will then leave the confines of Buckeye Varsity Field and head to Louisville, Kentucky, to square off against the Cardinals on Sunday, Sept. 18 at 1 p.m. “You need to play 70 minutes because if you have a low and you’re not managing it, [Northwestern will] make you pay,” Coach Wilkinson said. “No matter what we do all week in practice, once the game starts it’s really about them making decisions for themselves and going out there and really competing.” The Buckeyes (3-3) head into a weekend of competition following a 2-1 victory in overtime against Miami (3-4) on Sunday, marking Ohio State’s third consecutive win in a five-game homestand. The game was a showcase of Buckeye fitness and skill, with junior goalie Liz Tamburro out-saving Miami 5-1 and freshman midfielder Adelaide Penzone scoring the winning point in overtime, marking her third career goal and securing her position as the third leading scorer among Big Ten freshman. Friday’s matchup between the Buckeyes and the Wildcats (4-2) will mark the beginning of Big Ten play for both teams this season. Three of Ohio State’s last five Big Ten openers have weighed in its favor, including a 2-1 victory over Northwestern in 2011. Still, head coach Anne Wilkinson knows that the Buckeyes are going to have to bring a lot of intensity and focus to Friday’s game. OSU vs. Louisville History Sunday’s contest will be the 26th time the Cardinals and the Buckeyes have faced-off since 1989. Ohio State leads the series 16-9, with Louisville emerging victorious from the teams’ last four games. The most recent matches include: Louisville (6-0) remains undefeated, averaging 4.64 goals per game. Offense is lead by Minout Mink, who has eight goals and one assist. Goalie Ayeisha McFerran boasts a .857 save percentage and has only allowed three goals in the last six games. Ohio State junior forward midfielder Maddy Humphrey said that in order to get around the top scoring defense in the country, the Buckeyes’ offensive line is going to have to play its best game of the season. read more


Arniel happy with Blue Jackets performance despite loss to Ducks

Tuesday night’s 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks was the Columbus Blue Jackets’ first regulation defeat in their last six games — and it hurt. Goals from left winger captain Rick Nash, who has scored in the Jackets’ past eight games, and center Derick Brassard were not enough to overcome early power-play goals by Anaheim at Nationwide Arena. In the first period, Jackets winger Derek Dorsett unleashed a dangerous hit on Ducks winger Corey Perry, sending him headfirst into the boards. Perry fell to the ice, and players from both teams exchanged shoves behind the Anaheim goal before referees separated the players and assessed a five-minute boarding penalty to Dorsett. “It was a hit from behind,” Jackets coach Scott Arniel said. “It’s the referee’s judgment call. When you give (Anaheim) a five-minute major, that gets them off to a pretty good start.” That judgment call produced a two-goal lead for the Ducks. Anaheim wingers teamed up for the first tally. Bobby Ryan fed a pass across the slot to a streaking Teemu Selanne, who had no trouble scoring his 15th goal of the year to give Anaheim a 1-0 lead. Defenseman Cam Fowler’s fifth goal of the year gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead just more than a minute later. After being fed by defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky and center Saku Koivu, Fowler snapped a long-range shot that snuck past Jackets goalie Steve Mason. Before Columbus fans had settled into their seats, the Ducks had scored their first two shots of the game. But the Jackets responded with a power-play goal of their own just before the first intermission. Nash cut the Ducks’ lead in half with a wrist shot from the slot. Brassard assisted on Nash’s 23rd goal of the season, which made the score 2-1. A quiet second period saw the teams exchange scoring opportunities, but Mason and Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller denied everything. Mason and Hiller finished the night with 19 and 35 saves, respectively. But the game had more goals in store, as Ducks winger Jason Blake would give the Ducks breathing room early in the third period. Blake scored his 10th goal of the season on an uncontested backhand shot, extending the Ducks’ lead to 3-1. Mason was left helpless and hunched in the lower, left-hand corner of his goal when Blake emerged from behind the net. Brassard later narrowed Columbus’ deficit to 3-2 after a redirected shot from the blue line fell to him just outside Hiller’s crease. The tap-in goal, assisted on by winger Jakub Voracek, was Brassard’s 12th of the season. Thanks to Hiller, who extinguished a late surge by the Jackets, the Ducks eventually held on for a 3-2 win. Despite Tuesday’s loss, Columbus will enter the NHL All-Star break with a 3-1-2 record in its last six games. Brassard focused on the Jackets’ recent improvements following the loss to Anaheim. “I think we had a good push tonight,” Brassard said. “In the third, we competed really hard. We are just going to take some rest right now and make sure we are ready to make a big push.” Coach Randy Carlyle’s Ducks head into the midseason break in fifth place in the Western Conference. Carlyle commended his players for their effort. “The guys are putting it on the line,” Carlyle said. “Our guys have worked extremely hard to get themselves in the position we are in. We’re having some fun right now.” Arniel managed to stay upbeat about his team’s current standing after the game. “What we’ve done in the last two weeks has been very good,” Arniel said. “I like the way we’re working and competing.” The Blue Jackets will host the Chicago Blackhawks at 7 p.m. Tuesday. read more

Max Mosley porte plainte contre Google

first_imgMax Mosley porte plainte contre GoogleL’ancien président de la Fédération internationale de l’automobile (FIA) attaque en justice le moteur de recherches pour forcer le géant américain à revoir son système de modération.Si vous tapez “Max Mosley” sur Google, les premiers résultats que vous trouverez seront les suivants : “max mosley nazi”, “max mosley video”, “max mosley nazi video” et “max mosley nazi scandal”. Pas étonnant quand on sait que l’ancien président de la FIA, fils d’un dirigeant de l’équivalent du FN anglais, a été surpris en 2008 par le quotidien à scandales News of the World dans une vidéo montrant ses pratiques sadomasochistes avec un groupe de prostituées, le tout en costumes à connotation nazie. À lire aussiÉquinoxe du Printemps : pourquoi tombe-t-il le 20 mars ?Mêlé à une affaire d’écoutes téléphoniques cette année, le tabloïd aurait versé plus d’un million de livres sterling à “des victimes” pour tenter d’étouffer l’affaire, dont justement Max Mosley. Amené à témoigner dans l’enquête lancée par la justice britannique, l’ex-patron de l’automobile mondiale a, à cette occasion, révélé qu’il avait engagé des poursuites à propos de cette fameuse vidéo contre Google, en France et en Allemagne. Pour lui, le moteur de recherches américain est trop lent à faire retirer les pages de son index. “Le point fondamental, c’est que Google pourrait empêcher (cette vidéo) d’apparaître, mais ils refusent au nom d’une question de principe”, explique l’ancien avocat qu’est Mosley.”Nous ne voulons pas et nous ne pouvons pas contrôler tout ce qui est publié sur Internet”, a de son côté répondu la firme de Mountain View. “Mais lorsque nous apprenons via une requête de la cour qu’une page en particulier présente du contenu illégal alors nous faisons tout ce que nous pouvons pour l’ôter de nos résultats de recherche”.

The iPhone 8 Will Be Revealed September 12

first_imgUPDATE: Apple itself has now confirmed this date is real. The next iPhone will make its debut on September 12, 10 A.M. Pacific Time as the first event in the new Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino.I’m a very qualified Apple fan. I prefer PCs to Macs. I love my iPad but think it’s ultimately unnecessary. And while I never looked back after jumping from Android to iOS, I think every recent iPhone that isn’t the iPhone SE has just gotten worse with their needlessly large screens and lack of headphone jacks.The iPhone is a decade old now, so if there’s any time to show how the product will continue to be a massive success for the next ten years, that time is now. We already knew we didn’t have to wait much longer since iPhone events always happen this time of year, but now we might have an exact date. The future of iPhone may be revealed on Tuesday, September 12.via Nodus and Gordon KellyThat report comes from Mac4Ever, which is claiming that Apple has told carriers to expect the event that day. So this is by no means confirmed, but again, given past iPhone fall events, September 12 isn’t a crazy prediction. Official pre-orders and sales should go up not too long after this reveal.More exciting is what we might see on September 12. Like I said before, recent iPhone disappointments mean I don’t follow the device as closely as I used to. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t rumors to dredge up.Our previous stories have suggested that the next iPhone, whether it’s an iPhone 8 or iPhone 7s or both, will feature an elongated, 5.8-inch bezel-less screen with a virtual home button instead of a physical one. While the headphone jack is still shamefully missing, a Lightning port remains (as opposed to a switch to USB-C). With Apple’s recent push into augmented reality, the cameras will be getting an upgrade to improve object and facial scanning and recognition. This will also tie in with the new security features.That’s what we think we’ll see from Apple on September 12, but it could be all wrong, even the date. In any case, the iPhone’s destiny should be revealed soon enough.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

We were lucky to score the fourth goal in the final minute of the first half because otherwise, it would have been complicated after half-time.“As a team, he [Mark Hughes] demanded a lot, and today we were very clinical, especially at the start, and we had the feeling we would create a lot of chances.“But when they had the ball in midfield we didn’t control the balls, they won all the second balls, we had to defend deeper and were not stable enough – and that’s why the fourth goal was so crucial.”last_img read more
