Take one quarterback off the market and add anothe

first_imgTake one quarterback off the market and add another one to it.While the San Francisco 49ers trading Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs means he is no longer an option for the Arizona Cardinals, his arrival signals departure from Kansas City of someone who could be.Look for Matt Cassel to be one of the quarterbacks on the Cardinals’ radar. Cassel also will receive interest from other teams.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 27, 2013 Cassel, 30, has spent the last four seasons with the Chiefs after starting his career with New England. A Pro Bowler in 2010 when he threw for 27 touchdowns and just seven interceptions, his numbers have dipped since as he dealt with injuries and ineffectiveness. Cassel played in just nine games each of the last two seasons, and in 2012 completed 58.1 percent of his passes for 1,796 yards and six touchdowns while throwing 12 interceptions. Not known for having a big arm, which is something new Cardinals coach Bruce Arians would appear to prefer, it is unclear if Cassel would be a good fit in Arizona. However, with the Chiefs set to release him he would be a reasonably cheap option for a Cardinals team that could use some help at the position.

California there’s evidence of the state’s goal to lead the country in renewable energy Enormous farms of shiny solar panels have popped up across southern California and gigantic wind turbines dot the landscape outside nearly all the major cities There are less flashyand less visibleinvestments in renewables going on too Tucked away in warehouses trailers and industrial parks are lithium ion batteries that if all goes well will play a critical role in helping California hit its ambitious target: to have 50% of all electricity come from renewables by 2050 Some green energy sources come with a built-in challenge: the wind and the sun can’t be turned on and off at will When it’s windy and sunny an abundance of energy may be harnessedbut any excesses go to waste That’s where batteries the most common type of energy storage come in Batteries solve that problem by allowing utility companies to collect excess electricity and store it for times when the sun may not be shining or the wind not blowing "Networks care about reliability" says Logan Goldie-Scot an energy-storage analyst at Bloomberg New Energy Finance "Energy storage is being viewed by network operators as a potential tool in their toolbox and that hasnt been the case up until now” In 2013 California launched an aggressive effort to ramp up large-scale energy storage with an initial goal of building 1325 megawatts of storage by 2020 the equivalent capacity of two average sized coal-fired power plants Today the state is already home to 36% of the country’s battery storage capacity with projects continuing to open on a regular basis according to a Climate Group report Oregon and Massachusetts have since announced their own storage targets Meanwhile dozens of cities have made commitments to get 100% of their electricity from renewables California’s effort will serve as test case for policymakers and utilities across the country hoping to deploy more renewables If it works as planned others will likely follow suit “Everybody looks to California to see what works and what doesnt workand how to tweak it” says Marlene Motyka global renewable energy leader at Deloitte “States are looking at it in terms of renewable technologies and how to get more value out of their systems” Batteries will also change the power sector as homeowners and businesses install their own products Batteries at homes offices and other commercial buildings allow customers to save electricity collected by their solar panels and use it at times when electricity prices are highest One in four businesses with more than 250 employees has already deployed batteries to help with their electricity management according to a Deloitte study Regulatory changes that encourage battery owners to sell back stored electricity when it’s in high demand could increase interest in batteries analysts say Batteries installed in electric vehicles for instance will also affect the electric grid as automakers continue to expand their offerings Experts say the impact will both stress and help utilities manage their electricity supply The stress comes as vehicles create a new demand for energy but at the same time batteries in those vehicles act as a storage unit of their own that may offer new flexibility The largest battery in a Tesla as one example can store enough electricity to power the average American home for more than three days Utilities have begun exploring programs to encourage electric vehicle owners to charge their cars when there is extra power on the grid Perhaps the biggest open question for energy storage remains how muchand wherethe market will grow in the coming yearswhether lithium ion batteries will keep their place as the top way of storing electricity Hydrogen storage molten salt and other forms of batteries all offer alternatives that have received significant investment in recent years But much like photovoltaic solar panels in recent years the cost of lithium ion batteries has already come down so much that the market’s continued growth seems almost inevitable “A few years ago batteries were seen as talked about in terms of innovative technology” says Motyka “Now its here and starting to be used in full force” Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecomArtists are different from the rest of us: they make their pain public Most people conceal their grievances under an official smile fearful that the airing of any animosities will force confrontations and result in emotional defeat But aspiring artists don’t care what their parents or peers think They channel their resentments into a semiautobiographical first novel… …Or in Xavier Dolan’s case a first film Made when he was 19 with Dolan in the lead role and detailing the betrayal he felt when his mother got exasperated by his antics and sent him off to a boarding school the movie bore the ultimate Oedipal revenge title: I Killed My Mother It fairly burst with teen trauma and with the unassimilated visual influences of such auteurs of romantic angst as Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Wong Kar-wai Premiering at Cannes in 2009 the film immediately established Dolan as the enfant terrible of French Canadian cinema Tomorrow the world Make that today At a still-precocious 25 the former Montreal child star takes a more mature but endlessly provocative and exhilarating look at the same relationship in Mommy At last years Cannes it shared the Jury Prize with another daring film the 3-D Goodbye to Language by the 83-year-old Jean-Luc Godard and finally opens this weekend in US theaters Mommy is intimate emotionally choleric sensational and a bit loo long (at 2hr20min) But its excesses are at the heart of its appeal Beginning with a car crash and accelerating from there Mommy administers primal therapy to its viewers and perhaps to Dolan himself10 As in I Killed My Mother the embattled mom is played by Anne Dorval Suzanne Clément a sympathetic teacher in the earlier film takes a similar part here And the role of Dolans charming troubled teen alter ego is brilliantly assumed by Antoine Olivier Piton This time though the viewpoint is reversed Never condemning the son for his explosions Dolan portrays the mother as a boundless fountain of tough love She is Mommy dearest without the twisted Joan Crawford irony “Back in the days of I Killed My Mother” Dolan proclaimed at Cannes “I felt like I wanted to punish my mom [But] through Mommy I’m now seeking her revenge Don’t ask” Widowed for three years Diane “Die” Després (Dorval) cleans houses and occasionally translates children’s books Her 15-year-old son Steve (Piton) afflicted with ADHD and given to violent outbursts has started a fire in the school he’s been assigned to causing the burning of another young inmate Now Diane is to be caregiver and teacher to the blond good-looking Steve Their verbal battles waged at maximum volume in a raw Quebec patois would singe any viewers ears But at heart there is love: in Steve’s buying Diane a necklace with the word MOMMY and in Diane’s indefatigable championing of her son They get unexpected help from their neighbor Kyla (Clément) a high-school teacher on leave for depression who agrees to tutor the boy She and Diane get along like loving sisters especially when they open the box wine and dissolve helplessly into giggles But Steve who has harbors improbable ambitions of going to the Juilliard School hates the idea of sitting still for an education testing his teacher with rude taunts When he rips off Kylas necklace she wrestles him to the floor and her nose to his fiercely lays down the law His response is that of a frightened child or puppy: he wets himself Steve keeps bubbling with an adolescent sexual tension that threatens to boil over into Oedipal transgression But in a film whose only two females are maternal figures the prime primal theme is the love everyone needs not the sex everyone wants “I’m afraid you’ll stop loving me” Steve tells Diane She replies with a mother’s melancholy truth: “What’s gonna happen is I’m gonna be loving you more and more and you’ll be loving me less and less That’s just the natural way of life” Set in “a fictional Canadian future” Mommy is a film about right now and always about any family’s bonds and how the members fight to strengthen or break them Dolan and cinematographer André Turpin chose an unusual screen ratio Instead of wide screen they went for narrow screen like a vertical iPhone shot perfect for capturing the length of a body or the anguish on a face and to dramatize operatic feelings in a narrow field In only two sequences does the image expand to the full screen when Steve or Diane imagines life without social or spatial confines until the sides of the image start closing like prison walls around a convict’s dreams The Motion Picture Academy committee that chooses the Foreign Language Film shortlist excluded Mommy from its semi-final group of nine But that is Oscars problem not Dolans Prizes are irrelevant to a film that should hit audiences in their collective gut Stripping himself of his stylistic borrowings from other directors Dolan has found his own urgent voice and visual style Mommy doesn’t aim for classical grandeur Instead it bursts through the screen with the rough vitality of real people in an explosion of suffocating power and surprising

August 25 2016 10:50 am Ramya remarked that the people she met in Pakistan during her visit there were hospitable Top News Gandhiji described “sedition” as the prince of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) No fundamental right in our Constitution is absolute Freedom of speech and expression guaranteed by Article 19(1)(a) can be reasonably restricted on the grounds specified in Article 19(2) It is significant that during the debates in the Constituent Assembly the founding fathers in view of their bitter experience of the application of the sedition law by the British colonial regime deliberately omitted “sedition” as one of the permissible grounds of restriction under Article 19(2) on freedom of speech and expression However sedition as a criminal offence remains in the IPC under Section 124A and provides for inter alia sentence of life imprisonment and fine upon conviction Section 124A was challenged in the Supreme Court as unconstitutional In its celebrated judgment in the case of Kedarnath vs State of Bihar the Supreme Court explained the scope of sedition law It ruled that “vigorous words in writing and very strong criticism of measures of government or acts of public officials would be outside the scope of Section 124A” The Supreme Court further observed: “A citizen has a right to say or write whatever he likes about the government or its measures by way of criticism or comment so long as he does not incite people to violence against the government established by law or with the intention of creating public disorder” The Supreme Court did not approve of the Privy Council’s judgments according to which any speech or writing which evinced disloyalty or ill feelings towards the government could be regarded as sedition Many freedom fighters were prosecuted and punished for sedition by the British colonial regime The Supreme Court preferred the judgment of the Federal Court delivered by distinguished chief justice Maurice Gwyer who ruled that sedition law is not to be invoked “to minister to the wounded vanity of government The acts or words complained of must either incite to disorder or must be such as to satisfy reasonable men that that is their intention or tendency” The Supreme Court made the following significant observation: “It is only when the words written or spoken etc which have the pernicious tendency or intention of creating public disorder or disturbance of law and order that the law steps in to prevent such activities in the interest of public order So construed the section in our opinion strikes the correct balance between individual fundamental rights and the interest of public order It is also well settled that in interpreting an enactment the court should have regard not merely to the literal meaning of the words used but also take into consideration the antecedent history of the legislation its purpose and the mischief it seeks to suppress” The Supreme Court limited the application of Section 124A to acts involving incitement to violence which is the essential ingredient of the offence of sedition That is our law that is how 124A was interpreted and upheld as constitutional by a Constitution Bench Therefore the question whether certain speech or acts constitute sedition are questions of fact which have to be determined by a court of law keeping in mind the principles enunciated by the Supreme Court in Kedarnath Subsequent judgments of the Supreme Court have reaffirmed the principles laid down in Kedarnath Recently sedition law has been invoked against Amnesty International on the ground that certain slogans insulting to India were uttered at its recent event in Bengaluru If that be so it is certainly deplorable and may expose Amnesty to civil and criminal proceedings One can certainly criticise and condemn the alleged anti-India slogans But mere utterance of slogans by itself does not constitute sedition unless there is exhortation to overthrow the government of the day by recourse to violence which is the prerequisite for invoking the sedition section Surely our country is strong and mature enough to take in its stride alleged insulting slogans without rushing to invoke the law of sedition It is opined by some that Section 124 should be deleted In my view Section 124A “sedition” as interpreted by the Supreme Court is necessary There may be cases where Section 124A can be legitimately invoked Therefore retain the section but strike down actions not in conformity with the section Take the recent case of Divya Spandana alias Ramya who in response to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s statement that Pakistan is hell recounted her recent experience on her visit to Islamabad and stated that Pakistan is not hell and people there are like us — hospitable and friendly I have visited Pakistan on more than one occasion and found Pakistani people to be hospitable If I express my opinion am I in breach of Section 124A of the IPC The purported justification followed for booking Ramya under Section 124A is that her statement is an insult to people of India and therefore she should leave India and go to Pakistan The degree of intolerance exhibited is appalling Section 124A is not to be used as an instrument to muzzle unpalatable views It is high time that appropriate penalties are imposed on those including lawyers who invoke Section 124A wantonly and cause pain and harassment to those who honestly express their opinion and who are intimidated by invocation of Section 124A If this trend is not arrested it would lead to self-censorship a regrettable phenomenon One would expect judicial officers not to entertain manifestly ill-founded complaints It is the need of the hour to contain the forces of bigotry and intolerance which pose a grave threat to our democratic secular republic Ramya deserves to be congratulated for not yielding to intimidation and not saying sorry for expressing her honest views in a

announcing that it would not participate in the human chain called by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in support of prohibition even as the BJP had announced its participation in the programme The announcement to not participate in January 21 mammoth human chain to express commitment towards new liquor law in Bihar was made by HAM President and former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi “The NDA had together described the Excise Act 2016 of Bihar as ‘Talibani’ because of certain stringent provisions like arrest of entire family members on recovery of liquor in a house and community fine among others No Amendment has been brought in the Act and in this condition supporting the Law is not right” Manjhi said The NDA parties had also voiced protest against these stringent provisions in the Excise Act during all party meeting on prohibition late last year he said Watch what else is making news “Before participating in human chain the parties in NDA should first express regret for calling the Liquor law as ‘Talibani’” Manjhi said adding Nitish Kumar could use our participation to justify the Excise Act and make a public criticism of our protest against some inherent provisions On BJP’s announcement of joining the human chain on January 21 Manjhi said “its a unilateral decision of the saffron party without consulting NDA partners” Responding to Nitish Kumar’s appeal to all political

and while the British rider was happy to be on the podium he conceded his impressive collection of honours is incomplete without a Games gold The former world road champion who has also won the Tour de France (2011) the Milan-San Remo (2009) and is a three-times world Madison champion on the track had put everything on the line for Rio The 31-year-old decided to juggle his road season with trying to gain a place on his country’s powerhouse track team but his selection was in the balance after he failed to make the podium in his chosen event the omnium at the world championships in London in March However after sealing his spot on the team Cavendish delivered a superb performance over two intense days of competition eventually taking silver behind fellow road man Elia Viviani Cavendish

points I lost in the elimination I would’ve been right with him” Cavendish said after the points race in which he was responsible for a mid-race crash that grounded Viviani Cavendish’s desire to add an Olympic medal to his collection had become almost obsessive after he missed out on the Madison in 2008 with Bradley Wiggins and the road race in 2012 His improvement in the individual 4km pursuit

Asia Cup was a reflection of his positive mindset and it was a good news for already "favourites" India in the World Twenty20 Dhoni’s well-earned tag of world’s best finisher was under scrutiny following a prolonged poor run but the Indian captain sort of redeemed himself with some fantastic cameos during the Asia Cup "No player in the world has ever been in good form throughout his life as he is not a machine When I heard the sound of the ball meeting Dhoni’s bat I felt that it was a different sound That was the sound that tells you that the batsman is in different mindset" Tendulkar told Aaj Tak news channel on Monday "The biggest asset of Dhoni is his ability to absorb the pressure which has made him a good captain He has matured over the years He does not show even when he is tense which is a good sign Often a captain who is short-tempered or nervous can create panic among ranks which is not the case with Dhoni" Tendulkar explained Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni Getty Yuvraj who has been Tendulkar’s protege has also shown signs of being back in his elements and it has not escaped the legend’s attention "During Asia Cup I found his minddset changing which is good for India Again like Dhoni that feel of the bat hitting the ball was important for me but the most important thing has been Yuvi’s footwork As far as the ‘game Changer’ is concerned I feel Jasprit Bumrah can be that man for India in the World T20 He has a deceptive action and may look slow but hits the bat harder than you can think" said the 42-year-old For the owner of 100 international hundreds the best part about Indian team is its flexibility "The biggest strength in our team is that there is no predictable pattern in our team strategy We have seen Yuvraj and Dhoni being shuffled in the batting order Similarly Ashwin has opened the bowling for India The balance in our side is fantastic So I feel in terms of celebrations April 3 2016 in Kolkata will not be different from April 2 2011" Tendulkar said For Tendulkar England Australia India and South Africa are likely to make the semifinal line-up and England is a team that can trouble India the most "Australia may not have that depth in bowling as they had earlier but is still decent The batting is very good which makes them a good side South Africa may have not done well in crunch matches but they have AB de Villiers England is a very good side with fine T20 players I love their bowling attack "Someone like Moeen Ali who I feel is a cerebral spinner who knows what he is bowling It’s not that he justs lands the ball and gets wickets he uses effective strategy Also they have a leg-spinner Adil Rasheed who can be effective if he can be a bit slower through the air rather than pushing the ball Although India are not scared of anyone England can be a team that can cause some worry" said Tendulkar About New Zealand he felt that absence of Brendon McCullum will be a big factor "Having McCullum used to be a great advantage for them He played fearless brand of cricket which is essential He could hit the first ball of a match for six They will miss McCullum" He was all praise for veteran Ashish Nehra who has done well on his comeback so far "Ashish has bowled brilliantly It’s important to get a good start and Bumrah has followed up brilliantly So this good start given by the duo has also helped Hardik Pandya who comes in after that The spinners have been great Both Ashwin and Jadeja have done well and Harbhajan also did well in the chance that he got" Tendulkar also did not agree that the team has peaked too early winning 10 out of 11 T20 matches this year "I would rather like the state of our team than having a team that is still not confident of winning and does not know what combination to play" PTI London: Belgian winger Kevin Mirallas has signed a new three-year contract with Everton the Premier League club announced on Friday File photo of Kevin Mirallas AFP The 29-year-old Belgium

decades three markets — Nehru Place Bikhaji Cama Place and Basant Lok market — were representative of a nascent capital’s international ambitions Now after decades of administrative apathy and inevitable mushrooming of trendier market places have reduced the erstwhile markets to mere landmarks of a time now almost forgotten The DDA hopes to change this with its new refurbishment plan officials said According to officials the three markets will be renovated by the DDA after the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) hands them over to the Centre “The SDMC has handed over the areas to us and work is likely to begin soon The Union Urban Development Ministry has given in-principle approval for all three projects and the DDA has also got no-objection certificates from the corporation” said an official What unites the three markets officials said is that despite being important landmarks their relationship with the city has been nearly forgotten Take for instance the Basant Lok market where India’s first McDonalds opened in 1996 as did one of Delhi’s most beloved bookshops Fact & Fiction While the McDonalds persists the bookshop has closed its shutters The Nehru Place market is dominated by the 1970-constructed district centre designed by the DDA as an instance “utilitarian modernism” Now it is known as one of the largest market in the world for illegally pirated software and goods A 2012 walkability and accessibility audit by Svayam-National Centre for Inclusive Environments said the Bikhaji Cama Place market had become a symbol of “utter disdain for public property and lack of maintenance” As a part of its plan the DDA will repair the facade of the buildings develop piazzas renovate pavements fix toilets and build new ones and build pedestrian pathways “These markets in a way are also the face of our urban spaces So whether the civic body does it or the DDA doesn’t matter” said the official Officials said once the work on the Nehru Place market is completed the DDA would begin work on the other two markets while adding that redevelopment of Basant Lok Market has also been on the anvil for a long time Sources said an allocation of about Rs 80 crore has been made for the three projects with Rs 55 crore for Nehru Place “There are 11 district commercial centres run by DDA We will renovate other markets after this ends as well” the official said For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Bhaskar Dutta | Updated: April 17 2014 8:58 am The differential performance of states in implementing

bring rights-based social welfare schemes to the forefront All opinion polls suggest that the UPA has only a few weeks left in office After 10 years as prime minister — this gives him the third position in terms of longevity as head of government after Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi — what is going through Manmohan Singh’s mind as he contemplates retirement from public life What legacy will he look back on with a sense of achievement Perhaps more importantly what will history rate as his government’s biggest accomplishments Singh himself is supposed to have said that he counts the Indo-US nuclear deal as one of his finest achievements This was one of the few occasions when he dug in his heels and refused to cow down despite strong opposition from both within the party and outside However while the nuclear deal was a bitterly controversial issue during the early days of the first UPA government it is debatable whether this will occupy more than a footnote in history books There is little doubt that the distinguishing feature of the UPA’s 10-year rule has been the initiation of legislation incorporating rights-based social welfare measures The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) was the flagship programme of the first UPA government The act provided every rural household the right to 100 days of employment at the prevailing minimum wage in any financial year Subsequently the MGNREGA wage has been revised upwards The strategy of reducing rural poverty through employment generation and simultaneously creating durable assets has had a long history in India What was different about the MGNREGA was that it guaranteed employment as a legal right The food security law passed in September 2013 provides 75 per cent of the rural population and 50 per cent of the urban population the legal right to stipulated quantities of foodgrains at subsidised prices Several state as well as successive Central governments have been providing subsidised food through the public distribution system (PDS) for several decades So like MGNREGA the novel feature of the law was that it endowed the target beneficiaries with a legal right The flip side of the coin was that this put pressure on the government to deliver the promised quantities of food The two acts have been amongst the most important pieces of legislation in several decades Not surprisingly they generated a great deal of heated debate Detractors have labelled them acts of sheer folly and blatantly populist They claim that the “huge” expenditure required to fulfil the government’s commitments under the two acts will eventually spell doom for the Central and state governments They emphasise the leakages associated with such schemes Some also allege that quite apart from the drain on public resources the MGNREGA has impeded growth by pushing up rural wages — the rural poor are no longer willing to work except at significantly higher wages Their economic philosophy is simple (and simplistic) — the only way to eradicate poverty is to press full steam ahead with policies that promote growth Since MGNREGA was enacted several years ago many researchers have conducted analyses and some reports are available in the public domain No one can question the fact that contractors and some government officials siphon off large chunks of funds allocated to the programme However the extent of leakage is not uniform across states Some states perform significantly better than others suggesting that diversion of funds is not endemic to the programme There is also little truth to the allegation that MGNREGA has pushed up rural wages Given the relatively small size of the programme this would be tantamount to the tail wagging the dog Rural wages have indeed gone up — but that is surely due to the fast rate of growth The amount of additional resources required to finance the food security act has also been exaggerated by some critics with one estimate putting it at 3 per cent of GDP The government estimate puts it at Rs 125000 crore at prices prevailing in 2013 This figure is misleading since it also includes expenditure on a couple of related schemes such as the Integrated Child Development Services Since the food subsidy bill before the right to food was passed was around Rs 60000 crore the additional expenditure due to the new law would be roughly Rs 25000 crore This is a minuscule sum compared to the overall size of the Central government’s budget Moreover if subsidies have to be reduced prime candidates must surely be subsidies on items consumed by middle and upper income groups a leading example being LPG cylinders The proponents of rights-based social welfare schemes point out that relying solely on the trickle-down process has seldom worked Even China which has grown at astronomical rates for several decades has a more extensive system of safety nets than India The phenomenal pace of growth in China also suggests that the existence of safety nets does not in itself place any constraint on growth In fact the debate on growth versus redistribution which in recent times has been cast in the media as the “Bhagwati versus Sen” debate is rather sterile One can argue about the relative weights that governments should put on growth-oriented and redistribution-oriented policies But only an extremist would advocate exclusive reliance on one at the cost of the other For instance Jagdish Bhagwati himself rightly points out that governments need money to finance redistributive schemes and only a growing economy generates more tax revenues It is debatable whether the UPA government could have afforded the costs of these two laws if the economy did not grow at a fast pace Fortunately despite the slowdown of the economy after 2008 the Indian economy has witnessed the fastest rate of growth in per capita income during the last decade This has provided the Centre with additional revenue and hence the financial cushion required to bear the cost of the bills The differential performance of states in implementing MGNREGA as well as the PDS emphasises both the need to streamline delivery systems as well as the possibility of doing so What are the best practices Should redistribution be in the form of cash or kind These are the issues that should be debated not whether there should be any redistribution at all Perhaps the UPA needs to be thanked for bringing these issues to the forefront The writer is professor Department of Economics University of Warwick UK For all the
