first_imgNew Delhi: Rising for the fifth consecutive day, gold prices on Monday again surpassed its previous high by surging Rs 675 to Rs 39,670 per 10 gram in the national capital, according to the All India Sarafa Association, mainly due to a weaker rupee and strong global trend. Gold prices have been hitting a fresh high everyday since August 20. Silver also soared Rs 1,450 to Rs 46,550 per kg on fresh offtake by industrial units and coin makers. According to analysts, apart from persistent buying from jewellers, a weaker rupee and positive trend overseas were among the factors that aided the rally in gold prices.last_img read more

26 June 2007The United Nations stands to benefit from the results of a meeting on good governance bringing together elected officials, experts, business leaders and representatives of civil society groups, Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro told participants assembled in Vienna for the four-day conference. Addressing more than 2,000 delegates attending the Seventh Global Forum on Reinventing Government, she emphasized that Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, upon taking office, “singled out ‘the good name of the United Nations’ as one of its most valuable – and most vulnerable – assets.”She recalled that Mr. Ban, “promising to lead by example,” dubbed his mission “Operation Restore Trust.” Mr. Ban, the first Secretary-General ever to make his personal financial disclosure form public, “has encouraged all of his senior managers to release theirs as well,” said Ms. Migiro, who followed suit.“I can tell you that both the Secretary-General and I eagerly await the outcomes of your discussions,” Ms. Migiro told the participants, who are expected to discuss different perspectives, exchange expertise, forge partnerships, and devise effective governance strategies.The results of the meeting “can help guide our ongoing attempts to make the United Nations the best it can be,” said the Deputy Secretary-General. “And we know that ‘Operation Restore Trust’ can certainly benefit from your combined experience and expertise.”She expressed confidence that, working together, it would be possible to “not only build trust in government and in the United Nations, but also bring people everywhere to believe in a more hopeful future for themselves and for the world.”Welcoming delegates to the Forum, the Director-General of the UN Office at Vienna, Antonio Maria Costa, said corruption is often to blame for a lack of public trust. “All too often the public is robbed of the money that it needs to build schools, roads, sanitation and healthcare,” he said.“The fight against corruption…is another way of reinventing governance,” he said. Since 1999, the Global Forum on Reinventing Government has addressed the need for improvements in governance and public administration. Previous conferences have been held in Washington D.C., Brasilia, Naples, Marrakech, Mexico City and Seoul. This year, for the first time, the Forum is being hosted by the world body as part of a UN-wide partnership led by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs. read more

In a statement from his spokesperson, Secretary-General Ban condemned the 11 June attack on civilian Government workers which he said was “timed and located to maximize civilian casualties.”“Targeted attacks against civilians are unacceptable and a serious breach of international humanitarian law,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said.Mr. Ban “calls upon those responsible to immediately halt such attacks, which only add further to the suffering of the Afghan people.”The attack, for which the Taliban claimed responsibility, killed at least 17 civilians, wounding some 40 more. The Secretary-General extended his sincere condolences to the families of those killed and expressed his hope for the swift recovery of those injured.The UN Security Council and the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) had also condemned the attack.This latest incident follows a series of attacks against Afghan judicial officials elsewhere in the country, most notably the Taliban’s attack against the provincial court in the western province of Farah in April, in which 33 civilians were killed and 105 were wounded.At a news conference in Kabul the day of the incident, the head of UNAMA, Ján Kubiš, noted that the security environment for Afghan civilians has worsened this year, with a 24 per cent rise in the number of civilians killed and injured compared to the same period in 2012.According to UNAMA figures, 3,092 civilians were killed or wounded in the Afghan conflict between 1 January and 6 June this year. read more

The rookie quarterback threw three interceptions and was sacked four times in the Jets’ 13-10 loss to the Pats Thursday. Several Jets receivers missed passes also, adding to Smith’s tough part of the night.“Geno had his (good) moments,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “I don’t know how many balls we dropped today, but it was a bunch.”The Patriots also had a sloppy night of play and only managed just nine first downs in their win.“We have a long way to go,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said. “No one is coming to (our) rescue and save the day, so we’ve just got to fight through it.”Smith’s three interceptions came in the fourth quarter, after the Jets cut into the Patriots lead to 13-10 on Bilal Powell’s 3-yard touchdown run with 5:05 left in the third quarter. read more

first_imgThe Audi logo is pictured during the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show in Los Angeles.ReutersThe automobile market in India is witnessing a fall in the number of cars being sold and the most affected of all is the luxury carmaker Audi. The German auto company has put its further investments in the country on hold due to the fluctuations in the market.Rahil Ansari, head of Audi India told Economic Times that the investments in the country are not confirmed at the moment as any decision would be taken on the basis of how the market develops, during the inauguration of a sales outlet in Gurgaon. He also mentioned that last year the company sold 6,463 units which don’t justify the idea of making commitments of investing in the country in the future, said Ansari.The company, however, decided upon taking a sustainable path that can bring back the overall volume of sales to 10,000 units, provided the taxes and customer satisfaction see a substantial improvement.  Representational ImageINDRANIL MUKHERJEE/AFP/Getty ImagesThe slow pace of the local market may affect Audi’s annual sales to see a dip in 2019. The recent inauguration of a sales outlet would help boost the demand for the luxury car among the Indian public.To recover from this, the company will launch 10 vehicles and special edition vehicles that will contribute to more sales. During the event, Ansari admitted that he doesn’t see a very positive progress for at least one year. But the company is hoping on redeeming its losses in the second half of 2019.The idea for a proposed recovery plan is to launch more petrol, hybrid and fully electric cars as the introduction of 2020 BS-VI norms will make diesel cars costlier as the taxes levied in the norm cannot be adhered to by the manufacturer. This means the consumer would end up paying lot more than the actual price which can decline the sales of the luxury brand.

The center is the third to open in a national network of proton centers being developed by ProCure. It is one of only 10 centers that offer proton therapy nationwide.To mark the critical milestone, members of the local community will gather for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, presentation and tour of the cutting-edge center that features the engine of the center, its cyclotron, which accelerates protons to two-thirds the speed of light to stop with sub-millimeter precision in order to destroy a tumor.“At CentraState, we truly believe that patients who can benefit from protons should have access locally to this important treatment option,” said John T. Gribbin, FACHE, president and CEO of CentraState Health System of Freehold, N.J. “For this reason, we collaborated with both Princeton Radiation Oncology and ProCure Treatment Centers to make this aspiration a reality. We’re thrilled that we’ll be able to help patients with cancer in our local area – and beyond.”The 60,000-square-foot proton center took less than two years to complete and features four treatment rooms – all leveraging the latest technology in the field of proton therapy to be able to treat a wide range of patients. Once fully operational, the center will be able to treat about 1,500 patients a year.Proton therapy is a precise form of radiation treatment for cancer without many of the short- and long-term side effects often experienced with standard X-ray radiation. The clinical benefits of protons are significant: increased tumor control, improved quality of life and reduced damage to healthy tissue, all made possible because the proton radiation dose is designed to peak in the tumor, emitting a radiation dose of almost zero once it leaves the tumor. Studies have shown proton therapy to be effective in treating many types of tumors, including brain, central nervous system, gastrointestinal, head and neck, lung and prostate, as well as sarcomas and many pediatric cancers.It has been a long-time dream of mine to bring proton therapy closer to home,” said Dr. Brian Chon, medical director of the ProCure Proton Therapy Center, Somerset, N.J., and a board-certified radiation oncologist with Princeton Radiation Oncology. “I can’t speak highly enough about my colleagues and their passion, commitment and pure drive to bring this innovative and highly effective treatment option to patients. We’ll now be in a position to reach those in need – with a truly powerful and remarkable tool in the fight against cancer.”Patients at the ProCure Proton Therapy Center will benefit from the expertise of a network of physicians and health care specialists who hail from prestigious institutions around the country, many of whom have direct experience with proton therapy.Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in New Jersey. It’s estimated that approximately 49,000 New Jersey citizens will be diagnosed with cancer each year and more than 107,000 New York citizens will receive such a diagnosis.The ProCure, CentraState and Princeton Radiation Oncology alliance represents individuals united for a common goal: provide the highest standard of care to patients suffering from cancer,” said James Jarrett, president of the ProCure Proton Therapy Center. “The need for a treatment center in the area is immense and from the start, we’ve been focused on one thing and one thing only: serving our patients and their families. With only a handful of proton centers in the U.S., it’s our hope that patients who need treatment will no longer be separated from their families or from their homes while receiving this powerful treatment. Patients can now rest assured that they will have access to effective therapy right here in New Jersey.”The Procure Proton Therapy Center has been evaluating patients since February and will begin the first treatments on March 26.For more information about the center, visit www.procure.com/nj or call 877-887-5807.

He said authorities recovered the remaining six passengers, one of whom is in critical condition.Bugti said the abductors initially captured 70 passengers but let around 50 flee.Private satellite news channel Geo TV aired an interview with a man it identified as a survivor, who said the gunmen who attacked the buses wore security force uniforms. He said the gunmen separated passengers by ethnicity, ordering Pashtun people to stand in line while allowing Baluch passengers to flee.“The gunmen lined up Pashtun passengers after checking their identity cards and then opened fire,” said the survivor, who the channel did not identify by name.No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Baluchistan is the scene of a low-intensity insurgency by Baluch nationalists, separatists and other groups demanding more autonomy and a greater share of the province’s gas and mineral resources. Similar attacks by Baluch nationalists have seen them let Baluch flee.Elsewhere in Pakistan, a suicide bomber blew himself up Friday near a stadium in Lahore where a cricket match was underway between Pakistan and Zimbabwe, killing a police officer and wounding six, Information Minister Pervez Rashid told Geo TV.
