New Delhi: The ongoing ‘Delhi Bachao Parivartan Yatra’ will help the BJP galvanise its cadre and assess the organisational preparedness for the Assembly election due early next year, a party leader said on Saturday. Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari launched the outreach campaign on Thursday. The stated goal of the campaign is to “expose” the alleged failures of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government led by Arvind Kejriwal and seek public support to install a BJP dispensation in the national capital.

Tiwari said besides “exposing” the “poor show” of the AAP government in past five years, the campaign would pay attention to BJP workers and their preparedness for the Assembly election. The party is aiming to mobilise all workers in a particular area so that it can be verified if they have renewed their membership in the latest drive, said Delhi BJP media relationship head Neelkant Bakshi. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings In its membership drive that concluded earlier this month, the Delhi unit claimed to have added over 17 lakh people to the party-fold. The Delhi BJP president and other senior leaders are scheduled to visit all the 14 districts and 70 Assembly constituencies during the drive that will conclude by September-end. Bakshi said that in order to ensure quick galvanisation of party leaders and workers in the districts, the schedule of the yatra has not been announced beforehand. “Thus, its easy to check how quickly and in what numbers party leaders and workers can assemble in an area after the yatra reaches there. This is a crucial element of the campaign to ascertain preparedness and efficiency of the organisation to be mobilised for big events like Assembly polls,” Bakshi said. Launching the campaign from outer Delhi’s Bhalaswa Dairy area, the Delhi BJP president had attacked the Kejriwal government over a host of issues, including regularisation of unauthorised colonies and non-implementation of Ayushman Bharat health scheme of the Modi government. Besides these issues, it is being ensured that local issues such as lack of civic amenities, inadequate water and electricity supply, waterlogging, poor roads and streets are also prominently taken up, Bakshi said. Tiwari asserted people are eager to go with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ensure victory of the the party in Delhi because it has suffered during the five years of the Kejriwal government. The BJP was vanquished by the AAP which won 67 of the 70 Assembly seats in Delhi in 2015 elections. The BJP managed to win just three seats, and Congress drew a blank. The Aam Aadmi Party has hit back at the BJP, saying its three leaders, including Tiwari, were involved in a race to become the next chief minister of Delhi and were “obstructing” pro-people schemes of the Kejriwal government.

Rabat – Bouygues Immobilier Maroc announced that its departure is due to the lack of “visibility” on the real-estate market, reports Moroccan news source TelQuel.“Morocco’s real-estate market has become restricted. Because there is no market visibility, and because of the fact that the market is tight, Bouygues Immobilier has decided to leave Morocco,” said Ali Bencheqroun, the director of Bouygues Batiment International for Africa and the Middle East, Bouygues Immobilier’s parent company.Bouygues Immobilier will leave Morocco once it has completed its residential development project “Les Faubourgs D’Anfa,” in one of the wealthier suburbs of Casablanca. In March, Bouygues Immobilier lost its bid for the construction of the headquarters of the bank Credit Agricole Maroc. The 13,000 square meters, eight story building on the Anfa boulevard in Casablanca will, instead, be built by Moroccan construction company Yamed Construction.According to Bencheqroun, “there are no other real-estate market opportunities right now.”Read also: Casablanca’s New Grand Theater Inauguration PostponedBouygues Batiment International has two other subsidiaries in Morocco, Bymaro and Colas. According to Bencheqroun, these subsidiaries will continue to operate unaffected by the withdrawal of the parent company.Bouygues Immobilier Maroc was founded in 2014 and came to Morocco to fulfill the contract on the construction of the Faubourg D’Anfa project in Casablanca, a 400 residential apartment and commercial building development.In a press release at the time, Bouygues stated that “the implantation [of Bouygues Immobilier Maroc] is the foundation stone of a long-lasting presence in Morocco.”Bouygues Immobilier Morocco was unavailable for further comment on the reasons for its withdrawal from the country.

Norfolk Mayor Kristal Chopp introduced herself to the community last year as a frustrated brewer who couldn’t develop her property because of demands from Norfolk County’s planning and building division she deemed unreasonable.Since Chopp was elected last fall, some have criticized the mural that was painted on her building in Port Dover as disrespectful to the county and the office she holds.Friday, a painter was on site removing the message that launched Chopp into local politics.

Concerned by the rising food insecurity in the Central African Republic, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today said that it plans to boost its humanitarian efforts, while also calling for more financial support. “Humanitarian needs have risen in recent months as renewed fighting has exacerbated the already precarious security situation,” WFP spokesperson, Elisabeth Byrs, told journalists in Geneva today, adding that in order to guarantee the continued food assistance in the country, the agency requires an additional $20 million from now until April 2014.The ongoing conflict has disrupted the livelihoods of already vulnerable families since March, leading to some 1.1 million people being food insecure. According to the WFP-backed Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA), which was released in September and which warned of poor harvests now and in coming months, the food security situation will aggravate if the violence continues. Farmers will be forced to leave their farms, depriving them of access to conduct agricultural activities. Therefore, as the EFSA alerted, it will cause poor harvest. The UN agency is carrying out various humanitarian activities on the ground, such as assisting refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs), providing essential nutrition to women, children and HIV-affected people, delivering school meals and conducting livelihood projects.“WFP is planning to reach a total of 500,000 people and introduce a new blanket supplementary feeding program for 66,000 children aged between 6-35 months to prevent moderate acute malnutrition.” Ms. Byrs said, adding that the agency will also launch an emergency school feeding program when schools reopen in November to provide food for 10,000 children.Meanwhile, she warned that the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS), managed by WFP, requires $9 million to operate from January to December 2014. It is the sole means of transport for the humanitarian community to reach most parts of CAR, which are inaccessible due to weak infrastructure and poor roads. Further, the unstable security situation caused the temporary closure of several WFP offices and the relocation of its staff, making the food relief efforts more complicated.Plagued by decades of instability and fighting, the country witnessed a resumption of violence last December when the Séléka rebel coalition launched a series of attacks. A peace agreement was reached in January, but the rebels again seized the capital, Bangui, in March, forcing President François Bozizé to flee.There is now a transitional government, headed by Prime Minister Nicolas Tiangaye, entrusted with restoring law and order and paving the way for democratic elections. But armed clashes in the north-east have increased since the beginning of August, and the country is facing a dire humanitarian situation that affects the entire population of some 4.6 million.

Half of headteachers claim to have done laundry for pupils, as they say their families have “no aspirations and no role models”.Nine in 10 state-funded secondaries have provided clothing for pupils suffering high levels of disadvantage, according to a survey of school leaders.The poll, conducted by the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), found that 47 per cent of headteachers also said they washed clothes for pupils.ASCL questioned 407 headteachers, representing one in ten state-funded secondary schools across England and Wales, ahead of its annual conference which starts on Friday. One headteacher told the poll: “This is the biggest block to pupil progress. We now have children who have parents who are third generation unemployed with little or no aspirations and no role model or sense of a way out. It is a crisis.”Another added: “In 24 years of education I have not seen the extent of poverty like this, children are coming to school hungry, dirty and without the basics to set them up for life. The gap between those that have and those that do not is rising and is stark.”ASCL general secretary Geoff Barton said: “A decade of austerity has wreaked havoc with the social fabric of the nation and schools have been left to pick up the pieces while coping with real-term funding cuts.”They have become an unofficial fourth emergency service for poor and vulnerable children, providing food and clothing and filling in the gaps left by cutbacks to local services.”Politicians must end their fixation with Brexit and work together to build a new sense of social mission in our country.”We simply must do better for struggling families and invest properly in our schools, colleges and other vital public services.”One headteacher commented: “Some of our students do not have a winter coat for the freezing weather. Some have a free breakfast at school and free lunch because they are FSM (free school meals) and then do not have dinner at home.”Some feel they have to help with the earnings and provide food for the family even though they are only 11/12-years-old themselves.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

There were reports late last week that Jonathan Ive, the man behind the design of all recent Apple products, may be about to quit his job and move back to the UK.It is being suggested that Ive wants to go home so his two children can have an education in the UK. But the Apple board has said if he does then he won’t be able to continue working for Apple in his current capacity. Ive would be Apple’s design go-to guy no more.Ive has another option to consider too. An option grant issued in 2008 is now worth $30 million and restrictions on claiming it have ended this year. If he used the option, along with his other Apple stock, he’d walk away from the company with around $128 million, along with whatever personal fortune he has already managed to accrue over his years there.If true, this is another blow for Apple. It’s unclear how ill Steve Jobs is and if he’ll ever return to Apple full-time. The board refuses to discuss a succession plan for Jobs, and now the company’s number one designer may be about to quit.If Ive does decide to leave there would be no shortage of job offers waiting for him in the UK.Read more at Mashable and Mail Online

As the ultrabook category of computers grows more crowded, these machines will need to do three things well in order to survive: They will need to not look like a Macbook AirBest Price at Amazon, to demonstrate that they are ready for Windows 8, and to come in at a good price without sacrificing quality.This requires a delicate balancing act, and while some manufacturers are opting to just throw a fist full of models at the wall in the hopes that one sticks, Toshiba is sticking with their time-honored business model of releasing a single mid-range and a single high-end machine. The Satellite U845Best Price at Amazon is their mid-range ultrabook, and it was designed to meet the three requirements listed above.External hardwareLike most Toshiba laptops, the U845 is a grey slab with the Toshiba logo in a shiny material. At 0.8 inches thick and weighing in at 3.9 pounds, the U845 is neither the thinnest nor the lightest option, but it is still a highly portable machine. Unlike many ultrabook manufacturers, Toshiba has demonstrated that they’re capable of making a machine that is thin and light but still has a solid feeling and functioning hinge. I can open the Ultrabook with a single finger, and the hinge glides the lid to where I position it without moving the rest of the laptop. When I pick the machine up and move around, the screen doesn’t move at all.With a 1.5GHz Intel Core i5-3317U and 4GB of RAM, the U845 is the mobile computer you’ve always dreamed of. Combined with a 500GB SATA drive clocked at 5400RPM, the U845 will seem much slower during the boot sequence than any SSD-powered machine despite having a 32GB SSD on-board for cache. Alongside the full-sized HDMI port, a 7-in-1 card reader and three USB ports (one of which is USB 3.0) fill up the sides of this ultrabook. With these features the machine is ready for just about anything, including impromptu presentations and being used as a multimedia device. The speakers on this model were exactly average in my opinion. As laptop speakers go, there was nothing spectacular about the sound they produced.The bottom of this laptop doesn’t have much in the way of breathing holes. There’s a few speaker ports and access to the RAM, in case you wanted to upgrade from 4GB to 8GB, but that’s about it. On the rear of the device, there’s a ventilation section that fits nicely in between the two hinges. This design supports the ability to use the machine when laying on a couch or bed without it overheating. Unfortunately, you don’t actually need any help making this machine warm. Any amount of strain put on this ultrabook will begin to send warm air out of the back of the device. If you watch a movie or play a game for any significant amount of time, beware of the heat that comes out of that vent.Screen, keyboard, and trackpadToshiba saw fit to give the U845 a screen that outputs at a maximum of 1366×768, despite having it connected to a graphics card that outputs at 1080p via HDMI with no problems at all. On an Ultrabook with a 14-inch screen, this resolution is very one-task-oriented. Your websites are going to take up most of the screen when you open them, and you aren’t likely to take advantage of running very many apps side by side. The screen itself offers terrific viewing angles and great color, even in sunlight. The finish on the screen is neither overly matte nor violently glossy, rather a well designed balance of the two.The keyboard on the U845 offers a unique experience. They keyboard itself is recessed just enough that the keys are just barely raised above the rest of the lower case, but the keys are raised higher than is normally seen with ultrabooks. The individual keys feel almost spongy when you press them in, but they rebound to their starting position quickly. As a keyboard user that prefers a mechanical feel to his keyboards, the U845 was surprisingly comfortable to type on. The layout of the keyboard is slightly different than is normally seen, with Page Up/Down keys placed to the far right of the keyboard.As with the keyboard, the 2.45×3.75-inch trackpad on the U845 is slightly recessed. This creates the gap needed at the front of the ultrabook to open the hinge to fluidly. The recess isn’t quite as steep as the keyboard, but offers enough that you know without a doubt when you have wandered off of the trackpad. Multitouch on this trackpad, specifically for scrolling, was fluid but lacked hardware acceleration. This is a limitation commonly seen on Windows where the pad will scroll at the same rate no matter how fast you sling your fingers across the pad. The left and right click zones are defined by painted on lines, and so you will occasionally mis-click one for the other.Windows 8 ready?When Windows Vista came out, there were several Windows XP machines that labeled themselves as “Vista ready”, but consumers quickly learned that the stickers placed on those machines held little value. In terms of hardware and performance, the U845 should be able to handle Windows 8 gracefully. Because the Ultrabook has a quality touchpad, Windows 8 will be a much easier experience on the U845 than many other machines in this category. The 1366×768 resolution screen will not greatly affect usage in Windows 8, and since the new OS focuses on full screen applications the resolutions will likely not be noticed often. As long as Windows 8 doesn’t do anything to affect the 6.5 hours of battery life that comes from normal use, the U845 will convert to the next version of Windows nicely.It’s not always easy for ultrabooks to stay below the $1,000 mark and still be high quality. The U845 has made cutbacks in some critical areas, and as a result has made a highly portable machine for $850. The U845 is not spectacular in any one way, but altogether Toshiba has made a mid-range ultrabook that is both well assembled and enjoyable to use. This machine will survive the next version of Windows, and is capable of performing reasonably well during typical day-to-day use.

The addition of Outsports fills a gap for the company and helps it to reach new audiences. The SB Nation network includes over 300 distinct team and sport-specific sites, covering every major pro and college program in the U.S. and Canada, as well as non-team sports like NASCAR, MMA and Golf. Each site is devoted to an individual team, sport or league, and has its own writers, logos, team colors and community flavor, reflecting unique team traditions and fan spirit.The deal has been brewing for about two years—in 2011, Vox contacted co-founders Jim Buzinski and Cyd Zeigler after reading about Outsports in the New York Times. Zeigler says that talks began with Vox once the company realized “Outsports presented an opportunity to Vox to dive into a demographic-based model, which is different from what they were doing things.”Lockland adds that the company plans to enhance Outsports’ digital platform to foster better and more community interaction, in addition to enabling the group to produce more multimedia packages, collaborative news with other SB Nation sites and long-form, rich content. “With their resources we can get our articles and posts in front of a larger audience,” says Zeigler. “The sports world does not have the best reputation in regards to gay folks, so a lot of our readers were very concerned that Outsports would become something very different and that SB Nation would change it—someone even said they were afraid if there was homophobia at SB Nation. But they will enhance the product, offer resources and let us keep doing what we’re doing, and they’re a very LGBT friendly company.” Vox Media’s sports group just got bigger and more diverse. The company announced Tuesday that it has acquired Outsports.com, a leader in gay sports journalism, which is slated to join the company’s 20 million unique visitor per month sports network, SB Nation.Vox and Outsports declined to disclose financial terms of the deal. “We look to target young, male, affluent influencers and the Outsports audience fit that profile really well,” says Kevin Lockland, VP of SB Nation’s editorial operations. “Vox’s core mission is about empowering talented digital creators with exceptional products and technologies. Outsports has established that they are thought leaders in the LGBT sports movement and we felt like they fit our network as digital natives, and we can provide them with a better platform for story telling. They cover an area that is underserved and undercovered and no one does it better than these guys.”

The GRAMMY-nominated “Boogie Nights” and “Always And Forever” singer dies at age 65Tim McPhateGRAMMYs Oct 31, 2017 – 5:10 pm Keith Wilder, the lead singer of GRAMMY-nominated ’70s R&B/funk hitmakers Heatwave, died Oct. 29 at the age of 65. Wilder’s death was confirmed by the group’s manager, Les Spaine, via Rolling Stone. No specific cause of death has been confirmed, although fellow Heatwave band member Billy Jones told Dayton.com that Wilder died in his sleep.Wilder, who was born in Dayton, Ohio, formed Heatwave in 1975 in Germany with his brother, Johnnie Wilder Jr., who was serving in the Army. The duo subsequently enlisted songwriter/keyboardist Rod Temperton, drummer Ernest “Bilbo” Berger, bassist Mario Mantese, and guitarists Eric Johns and Roy Carter.In 1976 the group released their debut album, the platinum-plus Too Hot To Handle, which peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200. The album spawned the hits “Boogie Nights” (No. 2) and “Always And Forever,” both of which attained platinum status. Heatwave’s sophomore LP, Central Heating, hit No. 10 on the strength of the Top 20 hit “The Groove Line.” The group’s third album, 1980’s Hot Property, was certified gold.Moving into a new decade, Heatwave released 1980’s Candles and 1982’s Current. By then, the group had lost Mantese, Wilder Jr. and Temperton, who at that point was emerging as a go-to songwriter for the likes of Michael Jackson, George Benson and Michael McDonald, among others.Keith Wilder revamped Heatwave for 1988’s The Fire, and kept the band alive as a touring entity into the ’90s. While Wilder continued to tour in recent years, he was forced to retire from the road after suffering a stroke in 2015.

Raised in Charlottesville, Elizabeth Herendeen talked about how the violent clash beween “Unite the Right” marchers and counter-protestors has affected her hometown. (Emily Kwong/KCAW photo)President Trump said again today the white nationalists who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia weren’t solely to blame for the violence there. As he did this weekend, Trump suggested the left-wing counter-demonstrators were also culpable.Listen now“You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent,” Trump said.Trump also defended the protestors. He said some weren’t neo-Nazis – they just didn’t want to see a Confederate general’s statue come down, a position he sounded sympathetic to.“This week it’s Robert E. Lee,” Trump said. “I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down. I wonder: Is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?”Meanwhile, the events in Charlottesville continued to ripple across the country, with protests to condemn racism and to mourn for the counter-protester who was killed Saturday.About 50 people gathered over the weekend in Homer, and some 300 came out Sunday in downtown Anchorage.On Monday, dozens of people joined a candlelight vigil in Sitka.A little girl watched her mother light a candle at Sitka’s peace vigil, which drew over 100 people around a large totem pole in the center of town. Some brought tea lights cupped in seashells, others housed candles wrapped in aluminum foilThe candles are for creating “a safe space for community, in solidarity with Charlottesville and beyond.” That’s how organizer Hannah Guggenheim described the event on Facebook.Holding a microphone, Guggenheim began the vigil with a quote from anti-Apartheid revolutionary Nelson Mandela.“’No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or religion. People must learn to hate and if they learn to hate, they can be taught to love.’” Guggenheim added, “So that’s why I’m here. That’s why we’re all here, today.”Many attended to talk about the nature of hate in 2017 America and how to move in a direction of love in Sitka. For a town where the majority of the population is white, the gathering was fairly diverse and candid about Sitka’s own history of colonial occupation on Tlingit land.Over 100 people gathered at a vigil in Sitka for the counterprotestor who lost her life in Charlottesville (Photo by Emily Kwong)Lakota Harden brought sage to burn. Dale Williams recalled how in 1965 someone mounted a burning cross on the Sheldon Jackson Campus, in response to a local Civil Rights march.Dionne Brady-Howard hoped the events in Charlottesville would spur further dialogue on not only what happened this weekend, but just how deeply racism in America runs.“If nothing else, it’s brought to light how much hatred there still is and things like institutional racism and generational trauma across our nation,” Brady-Howard said.Martina Kurzer grew up in Germany. She said video footage of the street fighting in Virginia brought flashbacks to stories her grandparents told her, “stories of street fights between Communists and Nazis in the year 1925.”For Elizabeth Herendeen, who moved to Sitka three months ago, this is all new. She grew up in Charlottesville and attended the University of Virginia, where the “Unite the Right” rally converged.“Just talking to my mom this morning, people are afraid to go out and live their lives and just to run errands or go to work,” Herendeen said.Alt-right leaders have vowed to return to her hometown.Over 100 people gathered at a vigil in Sitka for the counterprotestor who lost her life in Charlottesville (Photo by Emily Kwong)In April, the Charlottesville City Council voted to remove a statue of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Opponents sued and a district court judge postponed the decision for six months. The case is still in court, making the city a battleground for white supremacists to push for its protection. In June, the City Council renamed Lee Park — where the statue is erected — Emancipation Park.David Kanosh shared how the possibility of racially-motivated violence was a reality for him in 2003. He was beaten in a bathroom in Sitka’s ANB Harbor.“I was beaten and left for dead by some people who carved a swastika in my chest. Do I have fear of going out that door? Of course. I always have that fear in my heart now. But I always face that fear with love because I always feel the people of Sitka that came out when I was in the hospital,” Kanosh said. “Will this dialogue continue? It must always continue.”Sometimes that dialogue takes shape with music.Joining hands again, the vigil closed with the an anthem from the Civil Rights era — the gospel song, “We Shall Overcome.”Alaska Public Media’s Liz Ruskin contributed to this story.

COPY LINKAD Loading … IndiGo aircraftReutersMajor Indian airlines such as Indigo and Jet Airways are facing hurdles in expanding operations as they are unable to deploy new Airbus A320 Neo and Boeing 737 MAX jets due to curbs by aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation. The aviation watchdog raised operational safety concerns and recently rejected Jet Airways request to ease norms for its newly acquired 737 MAX aircraft. The curbs were put in place after a 737 MAX jet operated by Indonesian airline Lion Air had crashed last year, killing all 189 people on board.We have rejected Jet Airways’ request to relax the Extended Diversion Time Operations (EDTO) limit for Boeing 737 MAX aircraft because we are concerned about the performance of the aircraft, and would like operations to continue with restrictionsThe regulator had earlier rejected the country’s largest airline Indigo’s request for relaxations in operating A320 Neo planes with Pratt & Whitney engines. The Gurugram-based airline has been facing problems with its A320 Neo aircraft powered by P&W engines and there have been many instances of mid-air engine shutdowns. “We have rejected Jet Airways’ request to relax the Extended Diversion Time Operations (EDTO) limit for Boeing 737 MAX aircraft because we are concerned about the performance of the aircraft, and would like operations to continue with restrictions,” an unnamed senior DGCA official told The Economic Times. The EDTO limit for A320 neo aircraft also continues to be restricted.The regulator has limited the EDTO for both the aircraft to 60 minutes, which means that they can be operated only on routes with an airport reachable in an hour. Jet Airways had requested the regulator to relax the limit to 120 minutes for its 737 MAX aircraft. The Mumbai-based operator has five MAX planes in its fleet currently, with 200 on order. In July 2017, Jet Airways had asked its junior pilots, who joined the brand in 2016, to take a 30 percent pay cut or leaveReutersRelaxation in EDTO limitThe airlines need the relaxation in EDTO limit to operate on longer, mainly overseas, routes. “An EDTO approval will permit Jet Airways to replace its existing 737 NG routes operated under EDTO, and connect destinations that are out of range of the airline’s 737 NG fleet,” the airline told the newspaper. The hurdle in flying on longer routes is one of the issues plaguing Jet Airways, which is also facing financial headwinds, leading to delay in salary and debt payments. The company has also withdrawn flights on several routes as lessors have grounded aircraft due to non-payment of dues.

Twenty homes caught fire and a bomb was detonated near a mosque in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, the government said Friday, the latest unrest in a region that has seen hundreds of thousands of Rohinyga Muslims flee in under a month.The violence comes days after Myanmar’s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi declared that the military had ceased its “clearance operations” in the border area.The army claims it is trying to flush out Rohingya militants who attacked police posts on 25 August.But civilian refugees streaming into Bangladesh say they were terrorised by soldiers and vigilante Buddhist mobs who torched their villages to the ground.The testimony, alongside satellite images of some 200 villages reduced to ash, have fuelled accusations that Myanmar’s army is systematically purging a Muslim minority haunted by years of persecution.The UN has described the military campaign as “ethnic cleansing”.The latest violence saw 20 homes catch fire in Maungdaw’s Kyain Chaung village on Thursday night, according to a statement posted by the government’s Information Committee.“Security members went and checked the fire and are investigating its cause,” said the statement, adding that the flames burned through a community previously hit by fire.The following morning a bomb detonated outside of a mosque in Mi Chaung Zay village in nearby Buthidaung township, according to the government.The statement said “terrorists” were to blame for the blast, without specifying if they were linked to the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) — the Rohingya militant group behind the ambushes on police posts.No deaths or injuries were reported in either incident.Myanmar’s government admits that scores of villages have been burned down over the past month.But it has previously accused Rohingya militants of setting the fires and driving the communal violence that has also displaced some 30,000 Buddhists and Hindus.Those refugees have largely fled south, with some cramming into temples and even a derelict football stadium outside the state capital of Sittwe.The government has blocked independent media access to the conflict zone in northern Rakhine, making it difficult to verify the swirl of claims and counterclaims that has amplified Myanmar’s already bitter ethnic divides.Suu Kyi, who lacks control over the army in a delicate power-sharing agreement, broke her silence on the crisis Tuesday in a televised address pitched to an international community baffled by her failure to speak up for the Rohingya.The Muslim minority is denied citizenship by the state and has been the target of festering Islamaophobia in mainly Buddhist Myanmar for years.The Nobel laureate expressed sympathy for the “suffering of all people” swept up in the violence.But she also tried to paint a glass-half-full picture of the situation in Rakhine, announcing that “more than 50 percent of the villages of Muslims are intact.”She said armed clashes and clearance operations had ceased since 5 September, even though AFP reporters have seen homes on fire in the weeks since.

The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact TEMPE — Jaron Brown and Tony Jefferson hit the practice field Monday.They represent a growing group of players in the NFL: The undrafted rookie free agent.According to ESPN’s John Clayton, 77 such players made rosters over the weekend — a better than 50 percent increase over a typical season.Peter Schrager of FOXSports.com noted there are more undrafted free agents (which he pegged at 78) than sixth and seventh rounders on NFL rosters. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments Share The Cardinals hope for the same with former Clemson receiver Jaron Brown, who at 6-foot-2 caught 11 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns in four preseason games.“I think I was more nervous about my Clemson Tigers winning that Georgia game,” he said, smiling when asked how nervous he was over the weekend waiting to find out if he had secured a roster spot.“It’s a blessing really,” continued Brown, one of only four receivers the team decided to keep. “One thing I got to do is just not get complacent and keep working.”At one point, the Cardinals had three undrafted rookie free agents on the final roster, but linebacker Kenny Demens was released Sunday. So, with the addition of Brown and Jefferson, there are now 10 players on the 53-man roster who entered the league as undrafted rookie free agents.“More and more guys, with only seven rounds in the draft, get left out,” Arians said. “There’s a lot of quality football players out there.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “Those guys come in with the same opportunity as everybody else,” Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said. “As soon as we got here, we made it clear that it’s not how you got here; it’s what you do while you here. And Tony Jefferson was a prime example. Jaron Brown was a prime example.”Jefferson, a second-team All-American and first-team All-Big 12 selection out of Oklahoma, is one of six cornerbacks on the roster. He had a team-high two interceptions and tied for third with 14 tackles in the preseason.“Getting here is just one step, one part of it,” Jefferson said. “I got a long way to go to be where I’m satisfied and content, and I’m nowhere near that. This is just a stepping stool to build confidence — let you know you’re good enough to be here. So, now I’ve just got to continue to progress. I want to make plays and get on the field.”Fellow defensive back Patrick Peterson praised Jefferson’s efforts.“I’m excited for him. I thought he had a great preseason,” Peterson said. “I believe he’s definitely ready to go. He’s going to be a player for us in the years to come.”
