The Madras High Court Bench has set aside an “illegal conviction and seven-year sentence” imposed by a trial court on three people, alleged to be LTTE sympathisers, on charges of conspiring to smuggle acetone, glycerine, formaldehyde and dicyanamide to Sri Lanka for making explosive substances and indulging in unlawful activities in 2008.Disposing of appeals filed by them, Justice S. Nagamuthu ordered retrial in the case since the ‘Q’ branch police and the lower court had made “grave mistakes” in the trial that led to their conviction on March 4 this year. He pointed out that there were inconsistencies between charges framed against the accused and the charges under which they had been convicted. The judge said that he could not set aside the illegal conviction and let the appellants go scot-free for the errors of the prosecution and the trial court. read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram German officials appeared to give out conflicting messages about the country’s position on Greece with officials from both countries playing down reports about a new Greek loan package in the coming months, but expressing support for Athens’s reform efforts, while a top-ranking German official suggested that Greece would be more suited to support from the World Bank than the International Monetary Fund.A government spokesman in Berlin was quick to rebuff reports in Der Spiegel over the weekend, according to which a third aid package of 10 or 20 billion euros could be extended to Greece in exchange for more economic reform commitments. “There is no new situation regarding Greece,” a spokesman said, and ruled out a debt haircut “categorically.”Senior sources at the Greek Finance Ministry also reacted to the German press reports, noting that a funding gap in the Greek financial program was created due to decisions taken by eurozone officials. “We are open to any discussion about a package on the condition that there will be no more fiscal measures, only structural measures,” one official said.The German Finance Ministry’s five-page “position paper,” revealed by Der Spiegel and seen by Kathimerini, clarifies that Berlin does not favor the release of further funding to Greece in the first half of this year, adding that a premature decision on releasing aid to Athens could undermine reform efforts. It also adds that Germany and its European partners should send messages of support for Greece ahead of May elections.German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble expressed Berlin’s fears about Greece’s fragile political situation in an interview in Monday’s Wirtschaftswoche. “Greece is faced with a domestic situation which is anything but easy. It faces many difficulties,” he said, adding that a third loan program for Greece would be a “low-risk” move.Germany’s Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel was much harsher in comments on Monday during a discussion involving European Parliament President Martin Schulz, among others. “Greece’s case falls more within the remit of the World Bank than the International Monetary Fund as its state infrastructure is nonexistent,” he said. The World Bank usually deals only with developing countries while the IMF is one of Greece’s three official creditors, along with the European Commission and European Central Bank.In Athens, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and his coalition partner Evangelos Venizelos are said to have discussed the progress of Greece’s reform efforts, though the date of the troika envoys’ return to Athens remains unclear, as well as tactics for capitalizing on a series of positive economic indicators that Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras is to present in the coming days.In a related development, a statement by German leftist party Die Linke, according to which Greek authorities should impose a one-off capital tax on wealthy citizens, prompted a clash between conservative New Democracy and leftist SYRIZA, with the former referring to “the marginalized allies” of SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras. The furor followed the statement by Die Linke’s vice president, Sahra Wagenknecht, in support of the Bundesbank’s proposal for a capital tax for rich Greeks and her opposition to a third aid package for Greeks.

first_img Wow, the NES Classic Edition has been selling like crazy. It’s like Wii launch numbers here. I know, who would have thought a $60 mini-NES that looks cool and comes with 30 games that upconvert really nicely to 1080p over HDMI would be a hot gift? You’re gonna have a hard time finding one unless you pay way more than retail from eBay scalpers. That doesn’t mean you can’t play classic games, though.Here are some NES Classic Edition alternatives you can hunt down, varying wildly in price and availability. None of them involve illegally downloading anything, either!Wii U/3DS Virtual ConsoleNintendo itself offers the most obvious alternative to the NES Classic. While its online services still lag years behind everyone else’s, Nintendo does have a huge library of classic games you can download straight to your Wii U or 3DS. NES games are $5 a pop, meaning instead of $60 you’ll be spending $150 if you want every game on the NES Classic. The Wii U Virtual Console also doesn’t look quite as good as the NES Classic; its games are darker, less saturated, and the sound isn’t quite right. We’re not sure why.Retro-Bit GenerationsRetro-Bit, a company that makes classic game controllers and has put out cartridge-playing retro systems in the past, recently released the Retro-Bit Generations. It’s basically an NES Classic if none of the games were from Nintendo. It outputs over HDMI just like the NES Classic and features over 100 games from Capcom, Data East, Irem, and Jaleco. No Mario, Zelda, or Samus here, but you get Bionic Commando and Kid Niki Radical Ninja!I reviewed the Generations for, and unfortunately, it’s a pretty crappy device. Really promising on paper, but its HDMI output uses this ugly smoothing filter that might as well be a composite video connection, the gamepads are mushy, and the game list is mediocre to shameful. Seriously, you have over 70 actual retro games, why would you try to pump up that number by adding 2048 and a Flappy Bird rip-off?RetroN 5If you still have your old games, you can enjoy them directly with HDMI upconversion thanks to the Hyperkin RetroN 5. It can play NES, Famicom, SNES/Super Famicom, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, and Game Boy/GBC/GBA games, pulling the roms directly from your cartridge and emulating them as long as the cart is in the slot. There’s some controversy around the RetroN 5’s emulation code and it isn’t the most user-friendly device, but it works in a pinch if you can dig out (or find at flea markets) some classic carts.Retro-Freak Everything the RetroN 5 does, Retro Freak does better (except play NES games). This Japanese retro system can play Famicom, SNES/Super Famicom, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Game Boy/GBC/GBA, and TurbografX-16/PC Engine/SupergrafX games. Not only does it run the games while they’re in the slot, but you can actually rip them to a micro SD card and play them on the go using the system’s processing module, a small box that slides into the bigger cartridge reader shell and is about the size of a SNES cartridge. It only takes USB controllers, but the manufacturer Cybergadget makes a controller adapter that lets you plug in your original gamepads. It also can’t play NES games out of the box, but they’re working on a Cortridge Converter (yes.) that will hopefully come out early next year. Seriously, it says Cortridge Converter. They also have a Sega game converter to let you play Master System and Game Gear games on it. I got mine in Japan because I’m a giant nerd (and I got a great deal), but it’s fairly readily available online in North America now.Classic Game Anthologies Don’t Expect Any More Nintendo Classic ConsolesKonami Announces Live-Action Contra Film and TV Series Stay on target If you have a game system and don’t mind handling discs, there are loads of classic game collections available outside of the Virtual Console. There are Super Mario All-Stars and Kirby’s Dream Collection for the if you want Nintendo games, but my favorite is Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection for the PS3 and Xbox 360. 40 Genesis, seven arcade, and two Master System games covering basically all of the greats of 16-bit Sega (with the sad exception of Gunstar Heroes). There are also plenty of collections and individual classic games on Steam and PSN, and a good handful on Xbox Live.Crappy Drug Store Game SystemsLet’s be real here. You’ve seen those Atari Flashback and Sega Genesis game systems on the shelves behind the check-out line at your local drug store (or in a corner in your local toy or discount store). And they sound awesome. Lots of classic games in a package that look like the original system, just like the NES Classic. They often can even play cartridges if you have them. If that isn’t enough, they’re also usually dirt cheap. There’s just one problem: They’re terrible. The vast majority of these systems are so faithful (read: cheap) to the old electronics that they output video over composite. That’s a standard definition analog connection. Which looks terrible on an HDTV. These game systems sound fun, but if you have a big HDTV or 4K TV, you’re going to be looking at ugly blotches when you plug these things in. Once you play retro games on any of the other alternatives on this list, you won’t be able to play with these cheap systems without eyedrops.last_img read more

first_imgStay on target Monster Hunter: World is one of the year’s biggest games. In fact, it is currently Capcom’s fastest selling title of all time. PS4 and Xbox One owners have sunk countless hours into the beast-slaying phenomenon, but PC owners were left out of the party. Capcom decided to delay the release of the PC version in order to ensure it is of the highest quality. After spending many days trying it out, I can say this was a wise decision. The PC version of Monster Hunter: World lives up to, and oftentimes exceeds, its console counterpart.Fundamentally, Monster Hunter: World on PC is identical to the console versions. Players must hunt monsters to gain materials for crafting better armor and weapons to slay stronger beasts. It’s a simple but highly addictive gameplay loop. It is easy to spend many hours hunting the same monsters to get the right materials. This would be tedious if the hunts weren’t so engaging. Tracking a creature and battling it across each of the game’s enormous maps never gets boring. The feeling one gets when finally taking a monster down is beyond exhilarating. There’s a reason why the series has endured for so long. It’s a total blast.AdChoices广告Monster Hunter: World gives players various options to adjust. This includes things like resolution scaling, texture quality, ambient occlusion, volume rendering quality, and so forth. If you don’t want to fiddle with all of that, you can select from any of the four presets: Low, Mid, High, Highest (Ultra). If you’re a PC gamer, then you’re no doubt familiar with these settings. Though the setting options are robust enough, it is annoying that you can’t switch them on the fly. Attempting to change graphic settings in-game will boot you to the main menu. My advice is to let your PC manually give you the best settings. That way, you don’t have to constantly keep going in and out of the game to see how things look.My PC has a GTX 1080 graphics card with an i7-4790K CPU and 16GB of RAM. This is actually a little above the required specs for the game. Since my rig could handle it, I tested to see how things run at high resolutions. I could run it at 4K resolution, but the frame rate dipped to 30 frames per second and lower. Running it at 1440p resolution worked fine, but the frame rate hovered around 45-60 FPS. Since I prefer a steady frame rate, I set the game to 1080p with a locked 60fps. I can get higher frames if I unlocked the setting, but it fluctuates too much for my tastes. If your rig is more powerful than mine I’m sure you might be able to get 4K/60 or better. But I was happy enough with my settings.Coming off of the PS4 Pro, playing Monster Hunter: World on PC is like seeing things through new glasses. What immediately caught my eye was the higher and steady frame rate. All of the animations look extremely smooth. After playing for a few hours, other improvements start to emerge. The game has a great deal of additional particle effects and animations in the environments. I wouldn’t say things looked vastly different, but the subtle changes were noticeable. Monster Hunter: World is known for feeling “alive,” something which is even truer on PC. The environmental detail really is impressive.The higher frame rate is most evident during combat. The PS4 Pro version runs smooth, but it has nothing on the PC port. I performed attacks with greater ease than on console. The same goes for dodging and blocking. Because of the higher frame rate, I was better able to read monsters’ movements. This allowed me to attack and defend more effectively and quickly. It’s as if playing on console was weight training for the PC edition. My character feels so light and fluid in comparison. As someone who has dumped so much time into the game, playing on PC is just pure joy.While the game certainly looks better on PC, it isn’t a night and day situation. For the most part, Monster Hunter: World on PC is visually on par with consoles. Capcom didn’t throw in a bunch of new hyper-detailed textures or anything. This may be a problem for some, but I don’t mind it. This has a decidedly stylized look that could be lost with uber textures. I appreciate the fact the game looks familiar, but just more polished and clean. I realize the system requirements are on the higher end of the spectrum, but don’t expect anything like The Witcher 3 in terms of visuals. It looks great, but not mind-blowing.You can certainly play all of Monster Hunter: World solo. However, if you really want to appreciate what the game is about, you’ll want to play online. Finding matches online is no different on PC than it is on console. Once in a server, you can jump into others’ quests or post your own. During my time online, I didn’t run into any problems. Things went as well as expected. There was never any lag or stuttering. The only main difference I noticed is that getting into an online session is faster on PC (as is loading in general). Some players are already very far into the game, meaning you should have no problems finding or joining quests.Playing online is great for several reasons. The main one is obviously because it helps keep monsters from focusing solely on you. You’re able to better attack a creature if it is distracted by other players. The other reason is because monsters are actually more challenging when in a party. That isn’t to say they are easy when playing solo, but monsters are extremely aggressive when they’re being hunted by a full party. This makes taking them down all the more satisfying. Also, it’s just plain fun to kill monsters as a group. It helps you feel like part of a greater community, even if your partners are all strangers.The only major gripe I can lobby at Monster Hunter: World on PC is that I can’t use the character I created on PS4. I put a lot of work into my character, so having to start over from scratch on PC is a bummer. That isn’t the say there isn’t a small part of me that is perfectly willing to start from scratch. There’s an appeal to raising a new character since I’ve effectively maxed out mine on PS4. However, given the time invested, I wish I could transfer my Charge Blade wielding badass over to PC. This is the main reason why I will continue playing Monster Hunter: World on PS4 despite all of the advantages of playing on PC.Monster Hunter: World is one of the best games of 2018 and easily the strongest entry in the franchise. Because of that, it is great to see it on PC. At the time of this writing, the PC port has sold well over two million copies on Steam. That’s impressive considering it has only been available for less than a week. Though it isn’t as graphically impressive as other PC titles, its gameplay is what makes it exceptional. Hopefully, we’ll see future sequels release simultaneously on PC and consoles.If you’re a PC gamer, please do yourself a favor and check out one of this generation’s finest gaming experiences.

first_imgA few years ago we had a 6-foot-8-inch reporter whom everyone assumed would be a stellar hoops player in our pickup games. He was an excellent writer but I had my doubts about his basketball prowess. He was slow and plodding when he moved about the newsroom.So one day I asked another reporter — who often played with my friend — how the big guy looked on the court.He smiled, waited a few seconds and responded.“Deliberate.”I thought about that politically correct answer when I wandered into a Vancouver City Council meeting earlier this week.I admit I don’t get to many of these, although I do watch them on TV when I’m having trouble sleeping. But on this evening I was there to listen to Councilor Jeanne Stewart.Stewart — who has been in this role for more than a decade — had just gotten whupped by newcomer Alishia Topper.I felt I saw it coming. I suggested in a column right before the election that Stewart was being out-hustled by Topper and if voters were looking for a fresh perspective she could be in trouble.When you watch Stewart you might agree that she is, ah, deliberate. Now maybe that plays well as a councilor. Maybe. But as a candidate running for office, I suspect it’s trouble.Regardless, I was curious what Stewart thought of the election. She’s been very, very, very quiet since her defeat. This is one step beyond deliberate. This is mum.last_img read more

first_imgCognizantWikiMedia CommonsCognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) is back in the news once again. After the American multinational firm was accused of laying off about 6,000 workers in India to ramp up hiring in its home country, it is now being said that CTS has deferred the promotion and salary hikes of its employees by three months. The main cause of the move is said to be higher business costs, visa curbs, and slow growth.While the employees often get promotion and hikes around June each year, the IT giant informed its employees through an email that promotion and salary hikes would be effective only from October 1 this time, reported Business Standard.Cognizant’s chief people officer Jim Lennox told the employees that they would get a percentage hike on their basic pay up to the managerial level and employees at a senior level would receive a “lump sum” amount. Additionally, they will also get a bonus based on their performance.Cognizant has of late been garnering a lot of attention for the reported layoffs. While Cognizant president Rajiv Mehta told the Economic Times that the company had no layoff plans, he had earlier revealed that it does intend to ramp up hiring in the US. “We are shifting our workforce rapidly in the US with more US jobs and US delivery centres,” he told PTI. Additionally, he attributed the shift to “clients’ need for co-innovation and co-location.”It was also reported that Cognizant might also let go of its senior employees through a voluntary retirement scheme. The firm has reportedly given its senior employees an option to accept a six or nine months’ severance package, whichever is applicable.”We are offering a voluntary separation incentive to some eligible leaders, representing a very small percentage of our total workforce. It is related to our overall company strategy to accelerate our shift to digital and to deliver high-quality, sustainable growth,” a Cognizant spokesperson told ET. Employees of Infosys Technologies Limited walk in the campus of the company’s headquarters in Bangalore on April 13, 2017.MANJUNATH KIRAN/AFP/Getty ImagesMeanwhile, IT giant Infosys also revealed in May that employees may have to wait for a bit longer to see a hike in their paychecks. The salary hike for lower and mid-level employees has been deferred until July, while the senior level employees will see a further delay.Infosys’ chief operating officer UB Pravin Rao had then told the Economic Times that the firm had adopted a few cost reduction measures, but they were done only after consulting the employees. However, the employees were clearly not pleased with the idea and said: “They have delayed the salary hike. They are also raising the cost of parking in the campus and facilities fees. So even if you get a hike, you will end up giving most of it back to the company.”last_img read more

first_imgGST BhavanIANSThe government on Saturday announced a five-day extension for filing GST returns till August 25, after the Goods and Services Tax (GST) return filing portal was hit by a technical glitch and stopped functioning, a day ahead of the last date for filing GST returns.Traders across the country faced problems on Saturday, August 19, due to the technical snag and could not file GST returns.The last date for filing GSTR-3B form for July was August 20, which is a summary return of details of outward supplies, inward supplies, credit and payment of GST.”Some technical glitches were experienced by last minute return filers,” a Finance Ministry statement said.However, the government cautioned the tax filers to file their return well before the deadline to avoid any last moment technical glitches.”Also, since it is the first return to be filed under GST, the tax payers and the tax practitioners have requested for few more days to file their return,” the statement said.”There have been requests from states which are hit by floods to extend the last date for filing of GST returns. The state of Jammu and Kashmir has also requested for extension of time because of late passage of their GST ordinance,” it added.The statement explained that in order to take care of these issues, the GST Implementation Committee, consisting of state and central government officers, has taken a decision to extend the last date for payment of the GST for the month of July to August 25 for those who do not want to avail transitional credit in TRANS1 this month.For those who want to avail TRANS1 this month, the last date for filing of returns will be August 28.Earlier in the day industry experts said the government needs to extend the deadline as too many traders could not file returns due to technical glitches.”The GST site was working intermittently since 12 noon. It created a lot of confusion among traders. Many of our clients called up saying they can’t file returns. If this continues the government might need to extend the last date of filing by another couple of days at least,” Prateek Jain, chairman, Assocham Special Task Force on GST, told IANS.”Due to system errors, taxpayers are not able to file returns and more so today, possibly due to heavy traffic, GST taxpayers are unable to log in for filing of return. This situation is putting taxpayers in distress,” Pune-based chartered accountant Pritam Mahure told IANS.last_img read more

first_imgMap showing bombings in Afghanistan on Tuesday that left 56 people dead. Updates with details of UAE officials killed. AFPFive UAE officials were among 56 people killed in a string of bombings across Afghan cities, authorities said Wednesday, as Taliban militants step up a deadly winter campaign of violence.The Emiratis were among 13 people killed when explosives hidden in a sofa detonated inside the governor’s compound in southern Kandahar on Tuesday, while the UAE’s ambassador to Afghanistan escaped the attack with injuries.Just hours before, twin Taliban blasts in Kabul tore through a parliament annexe, which houses the offices of lawmakers, killing at least 36 people and wounding around 80 others.And earlier Tuesday, a Taliban suicide bomber killed seven people in Lashkar Gah, the capital of volatile Helmand province, as the militants ramp up nationwide attacks in frigid winter months, when fighting usually wanes.The carnage underscores growing insecurity in Afghanistan, where US-backed forces are struggling to combat a resilient Taliban insurgency as well as Al-Qaeda and Islamic State militants.Kandahar’s governor Humayun Azizi and UAE envoy Juma Mohammed Abdullah Al Kaabi were wounded by flames from the explosion, but many others were burned beyond recognition, said provincial police chief Abdul Raziq, who was present when the blast occurred.“I was in the room, but had leave to offer my evening prayer,” Raziq said. “I heard the boom from outside and when I came back I saw people were burning.”Raziq blamed Pakistan’s powerful Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the Taliban-allied Haqqani network for the attack, adding they had long been plotting to eliminate Kandahar’s leadership.“This terrorist attack happened at a time when the ambassador and a number of UAE diplomats in Afghanistan were on a trip to Kandahar to lay the foundation stone of an orphanage,” the Afghan foreign ministry said.President Ashraf Ghani condemned the bombing and ordered an investigation led by Afghanistan’s National Security Council chief Hanif Atmar.The Taliban denied responsibility for the Kandahar attack, but said they were behind the Kabul blasts.In the first explosion, a suicide bomber blew himself up next to a minibus transporting government employees. As rescuers reached the scene, a car bomb went off.Among the 36 dead were four policemen who were killed in the second explosion when they rushed to help the victims of the first blast.Afghanistan’s health ministry warned that the toll was expected to rise as many of the wounded were battling for their lives in hospital.‘Deplorable attacks’ -Condemning the “barbaric attack”, Ghani lashed out at the Taliban for the Kabul assault on civilians, which left the area littered with bloodied bodies.“Such unprincipled, unlawful and deplorable attacks cause immense human suffering and make the peace that Afghans need and deserve even more difficult to achieve,” the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan said in a statement.Tuesday’s carnage came just ten days before Donald Trump is sworn in as US president.The situation in Afghanistan will be an urgent matter for the new leader, even though America’s longest war got scarcely a passing mention in the bitterly contested presidential election.Trump has given few details on his expected foreign policy, with even fewer specifics on how he will tackle the war in Afghanistan.Repeated bids to launch peace negotiations with the Taliban have failed and a fierce new fighting season is expected to kick off in the spring.Afghanistan last week welcomed the Pentagon’s decision to deploy some 300 US Marines to Helmand, where American forces engaged in heated combat until they pulled out in 2014.The Marines will head to the poppy-growing province this spring to assist a NATO-led mission to train Afghan forces, in the latest sign that foreign forces are increasingly being drawn back into the worsening conflict.NATO officially ended its combat mission in December 2014, but US forces were granted greater powers in June to strike at the insurgents as President Barack Obama vowed a more aggressive campaign.last_img read more
