Temple ‘purified’ after woman MLA’s visit

first_imgA temple and ashram in Uttar Pradesh’s Hamirpur district were “purified” and the idols in it cleansed with Ganga-water after a BJP woman MLA visited it.Local tradition bars women from entering the Dhurm Rishi temple. According to locals, Manisha Anuragi, a legislator from the reserved seat Rath, had visited the village Muskura Khurd on July 12 to attend a school function in her constituency. She also offered prayers at the local temple.Following her visit, the village residents called for a meeting, where they decided that the premises of the ashram would have to be “purified.” The idols were sent to Allahabad to get “purified” with the waters of the Sangam.“How could she be allowed to enter the temple. No woman has ever gone there,” a villager told journalists. The villagers believe that if a woman enters the temple, a natural calamity would befall them. They claimed that after the visit, they have stopped getting rainfall.Ms. Anuragi said she was hurt by the incident, calling it an “insult” to women.“There is no ban on women from entering any temple. There should not be any discrimination on the basis of gender,” said the first-time MLA.last_img read more

Will US News Weekly Work

first_imgU.S. News & World Report—having lost its status as a newsweekly in print—has launched a weekly digital magazine called U.S. News Weekly.”I don’t think the newsweekly concept’s outdated,” editor Brian Kelly told Portfolio. “I think it’s the delivery method that’s outdated.”But it remains to be seen if the concept—regardless of the delivery method—will work. Through June 2008, U.S. News saw its circulation fall 10.1 percent to 1.83 million, or about 170,000 copies short of its 2 million rate base guarantee.U.S. News Weekly will be delivered as a downloadable PDF and carries an annual subscription fee of $19.95 (a trial four-issue subscription is available for $3.95). Print subscribers to U.S. News will be able to download the digital edition for free, the publisher said. Sections in digital magazine, produced in partnership with Zinio, include “The Week in Washington,” “The Presidency,” “Washington Whispers” and “Blog Buzz”—repurposed content from U.S. News’ Thomas Jefferson Street blog.In November, U.S. News & World Report said it would scale back its print frequency to monthly.In 2008, U.S. News saw ad pages fall a staggering 32.4 percent, according to Publishers Information Bureau figures. It was the biggest year-over-year loss of any other title in the ailing newsweekly category.last_img read more

Jack Whites Boarding House Reach Reaches No 1

first_img Email Jack White’s ‘Boarding House Reach’ Reaches No. 1 News Twitter GRAMMY winner scores big with fans (and vinyl aficionados) on latest LPPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Apr 2, 2018 – 4:50 pm With a dozen career GRAMMY wins behind him, Jack White’s new album, Boarding House Reach, struck some critics as an experimental departure from what had worked for him in the past. As far as the fans’ take? Given the April 7 Billboard 200 album rankings, the result is resounding: White earned his third No. 1 LP on the strength of 121,000 “traditional album sales,” the most of any rock album in 2018 so far.In addition to topping the Billboard 200, the 27,000 “traditional album sales” that were of the vinyl format variety gives Boarding House Reach the distinction of netting the fourth largest sales week for vinyl since Nielsen started tracking.Boarding House … follows White’s previous solo efforts, 2012’s Blunderbuss and 2014’s Lazaretto. Both went to No. 1 and were nominated for GRAMMY Awards, with the song “Lazaretto” winning Best Rock Performance at the 57th GRAMMY Awards.In 2017 White garnered special recognition from the Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing in receiving the President’s Merit Award in celebration of his ongoing support for the art and craft of recorded music. As someone who helms his own music and produces for other artists, White still feels genuinely gratified by this acknowledgment.”I am very grateful [to the P&E Wing] to bestow upon me something like that. It was a nice pat on the back. It felt very nice,” White recently told KCRW-FM’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic.”With his latest accolade secure, White now turns his attention to taking Boarding House Reach on the road beginning April 19 in Detroit. He is also among the headliners for the 2018 installment of Lollapalooza. Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

Top Gun Maverick trailer shows Tom Cruise still feels need for speed

first_img Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). $299 at Amazon Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR See It Angela Lang/CNET Read Lenovo Smart Clock review Sarah Tew/CNET TV and Movies,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

The film is a sequel to the 1986 smash Top Gun, starring Tom Cruise as a crack fighter pilot with a need for speed. Tom Cruise is back in Top Gun: Maverick. Paramount Pictures In the trailer, a Cruise weathered by more than three decades of service, is confronted by the fact that he can’t get a promotion and refuses to retire. “You should be at least a two-star admiral by now. Yet here you are, captain,” a uniformed and authoritative-looking Ed Harris tells him. “Why is that?”We see a series of shots of Cruise flying through terrain from snowy mountains to barren land to open water as dramatic music plays. Apparently he still likes the danger zone. Top Gun: Maverick is slated for a summer 2020 release and also stars Val Kilmer, Danny Ramirez, Jennifer Connelly and Jon Hamm. Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is directing the sequel.  Rylo 5.8K 360 Video Camera: $250 (save $250) Apple iPhone XS What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them?

September launch for Intel Cedar Trail scrapped

first_img The battery life is said to exceed 10 hours. The new platform will carry Intel Wireless Music, Wireless Display, PC Synch and Fast Boot technologies.So what is the specific problem causing the delay? LG Nilsson writing for VR-Zone says what is clear to him is that it is something fairly crucial, if Microsoft has determined that the drivers are not yet suitable for Windows 7. He said his best guess is that the glitch lies in media decoding.Whatever the reasons, some best guesses and relevant insider insights will converge next month over what happened, what’s next and which dates to watch, at the Intel Developer Forum from September 13 to 15. One vendor that certainly cares about Cedar Trail is computer-maker Asus, a key brand name in netbooks. Asus has confirmed its support for Intel’s Cedar Trail platform. The company presented at Computex the Asus Eee PC 1025, its first Cedar Trail netbook. The machine features a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) display and will be powered by a 32nm Atom CPU (N2600 or N2800). The Eee PC 1025C runs Windows 7. Those familiar with the certification process reckon that submitting the drives for recertification, given the drivers’ complexity, will take some time. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Asus Eee PC Netbook 1000HG WiMAX Coming Soon (Video) (PhysOrg.com) — Intel has changed the launch date of its Cedar Trail-M platform that is targeted for netbooks from September to November. The reason for the delay is a problem with graphics drivers and failing certification for Windows 7. Cedar Trail is the code name being used for Intel’s next generation Atom chips built using the 32nm manufacturing node. A talking point over the Cedar Trail chipset has been that it represents the first netbook platform-based Intel 32nm technology. The platform is described as a unified architecture that packs the processing cores and the graphics processing unit on the same die. The graphics core includes support for DirectX 10.1 and hardware decoding capabilities for HD content, including MPEG2, VC1, AVC, H.264 and Blu-ray 2.0. This document is subject to copyright.
