‘Extreme selfie craze’ kills 17-year-old schoolboy in Russia

London: In yet another tragic instance of the growing “extreme selfie craze” among teenagers, a 17-year-old schoolboy fell off from the roof-top of a nine-storey building while trying to click an “extreme selfie” in Russia last week, media reports said.The 17-year-old student climbed the building in Vologda city with a friend to capture a stunning selfie while dangling off the towering structure, Mirror.co.uk reported on Wednesday.Once up, he approached the edge in fading light and lowered himself over it with a rope and a smartphone.Suddenly, the rope gave way and he fell down nine floors, suffering massive injuries.The schoolboy, who had posted several selfies in high-risk situations under the handle “drewsssik” on Instagram, was rushed to a nearby hospital where he died after a few hours, the report added.한 남학생이 9층 빌딩 지붕에서 위험한 자세로 셀카를 찍다 사망했습니다. http://t.co/qdh1jpn2ny @drewsssik #셀카 pic.twitter.com/8tEXrA1d0L— 위키트리 (@wikitree) September 30, 2015His other “extreme selfies” include posing on rooftops and balancing on steel girders on the top of buildings.One of the boy’s last Instagram photos shows him hanging on the wall of a building with just one hand. According to reports, he always ignored friends’ warnings.An investigation has been launched into his death.Russia released a safe selfie guide for people this year after a hundred people were injured and a handful died while taking selfies. According to latest media reports, selfies are officially more deadly than sharks.Twelve people have died so far this year in their quest to get that perfect selfie, compared to eight killed in shark attacks.The latest victim of the selfie craze was a 66-year-old Japanese tourist who died after falling down stairs while attempting to take a picture of himself at the Taj Mahal.In a recent incident, a Singaporean man died after falling into the sea off a cliff while attempting to take a selfie on an island in Bali.

Karnataka, TN will have to scale down water requirement: Digvijaya

Panaji: In a year of drought, both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, embroiled in dispute over sharing of Cauvery water, will have to agree to scale down each other’s quantum of water requirement, Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh said on Saturday.”So in a year of drought, both states have to agree to sort of scale down, the quantum of water availability for each state, so that process is on,” said Digvijaya Singh, who is in-charge of party-ruled Karnataka. “Unfortunately, we have had three consistent decisions by the honourable Supreme Court and a different bench has acted beyond the prayer. They have also ignored the recommendations of the supervisory committee set up by the Supreme Court to look into the release of water,” he said, adding that the Karnataka government, following the unanimous resolution passed in the state assembly earlier this week, would challenge the apex court decision. “First charge of water resources is for drinking purpose. Whatever surplus is there, goes to agriculture for irrigation,” he added.

Mallya suffers legal setback in F1 car ad case

MUMBAI (Reuters) – The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by Vijay Mallya to overturn charges against him for allegedly violating foreign exchange rules, adding to the legal challenges facing one of the country’s most prominent businessmen. The country’s enforcement directorate, responsible for fighting financial crime, has alleged Mallya entered into an unauthorised agreement in 1995 to advertise the Kingfisher beer brand name on racing cars during Formula One championships between 1996 and 1998. Mallya is chairman of United Breweries which makes Kingfisher beer and is now around 40 percent owned by Dutch brewer Heineken. The directorate has said he did the advertising deal without seeking permission from the central bank. Such clearance would have been needed because the agreement involved money going out of the country. Lawyers for Mallya, who is also facing pressure from lenders to repay dues linked to his grounded carrier Kingfisher Airlines, had told the court that the non-compliance was not deliberate or wilful, according to the court documents. The country’s top court on Monday rejected the appeal in the long-running case and could now force him to face the enforcement directorate charges. A spokesman for Mallya declined to comment on the court judgement. Mallya remains involved in Formula One as a co-owner of the Force India team. Mallya’s business empire previously included India’s largest spirits company United Spirits Ltd, but he sold most of his shares in the company and gave management control to Britain’s Diageo Plc in 2012. In April, the board of United Spirits begun a procedure to remove Mallya as the company’s chairman due to alleged financial irregularities. Mallya has denied the allegations and has refused to resign. [ID:nL4N0XO483] (Reporting by Sumeet Chatterjee; Editing by Keith Weir)

NASA releases plan outlining next steps in the journey to Mars

NASA releases plan outlining next steps in the journey to Mars

California, Oct 9 (IBNS) NASA is leading our nation and the world on a journey to Mars, and Thursday the agency released a detailed outline of that plan in its report, “NASA’s Journey to Mars: Pioneering Next Steps in Space Exploration.”NASA is closer to sending American astronauts to Mars than at any point in our history, said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. Today, we are publishing additional details about our journey to Mars plan and how we are aligning all of our work in support of this goal. In the coming weeks, I look forward to continuing to discuss the details of our plan with members of Congress, as well as our commercial and our international and partners, many of whom will be attending the International Astronautical Congress next week. The journey to Mars crosses three thresholds, each with increasing challenges as humans move farther from Earth. NASA is managing these challenges by developing and demonstrating capabilities in incremental steps: Earth Reliant exploration is focused on research aboard the International Space Station. From this world-class microgravity laboratory, we are testing technologies and advancing human health and performance research that will enable deep space, long duration missions. In the Proving Ground, NASA will learn to conduct complex operations in a deep space environment that allows crews to return to Earth in a matter of days. Primarily operating in cislunar spacethe volume of space around the moon featuring multiple possible stable staging orbits for future deep space missionsNASA will advance and validate capabilities required for humans to live and work at distances much farther away from our home planet, such as at Mars. Earth Independent activities build on what we learn on the space station and in deep space to enable human missions to the Mars vicinity, possibly to low-Mars orbit or one of the Martian moons, and eventually the Martian surface. Future Mars missions will represent a collaborative effort between NASA and its partnersa global achievement that marks a transition in humanitys expansion as we go to Mars to seek the potential for sustainable life beyond Earth. NASAs strategy connects near-term activities and capability development to the journey to Mars and a future with a sustainable human presence in deep space, said William Gerstenmaier, associate administrator for Human Exploration and Operations at NASA Headquarters. This strategy charts a course toward horizon goals, while delivering near-term benefits, and defining a resilient architecture that can accommodate budgetary changes, political priorities, new scientific discoveries, technological breakthroughs, and evolving partnerships. NASA is charting new territory, and we will adapt to new scientific discoveries and new opportunities. Our current efforts are focused on pieces of the architecture that we know are needed. In parallel, we continue to refine an evolving architecture for the capabilities that require further investigation. These efforts will define the next two decades on the journey to Mars. Living and working in space require accepting risksand the journey to Mars is worth the risks. A new and powerful space transportation system is key to the journey, but NASA also will need to learn new ways of operating in space, based on self-reliance and increased system reliability. We will use proving ground missions to validate transportation and habitation capabilities as well as new operational approaches to stay productive in space while reducing reliance on Earth. We identify the technological and operational challenges in three categories: transportation, sending humans and cargo through space efficiently, safely, and reliably; working in space, enabling productive operations for crew and robotic systems; and staying healthy, developing habitation systems that provide safe, healthy, and sustainable human exploration. Bridging these three categories are the overarching logistical challenges facing crewed missions lasting up to 1,100 days and exploration campaigns that span decades. NASA is investing in powerful capabilities and state-of-the-art technologies that benefit both NASA and our industry partners while minimizing overall costs through innovative partnerships. Through our evolvable transportation infrastructure, ongoing spaceflight architecture studies, and rapid prototyping activities, we are developing resilient architecture concepts that focus on critical capabilities across a range of potential missions. We are investing in technologies that provide large returns, and maximizing flexibility and adaptability through commonality, modularity, and reusability. On the space station, we are advancing human health and behavioral research for Mars-class missions. We are pushing the state-of-the-art life support systems, printing 3-D parts, and analyzing material handling techniques for in-situ resource utilization. The upcoming eighth SpaceX commercial resupply services mission will launch the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, a capability demonstration for inflatable space habitats. With the Space Launch System, Orion crewed spacecraft, and revitalized space launch complex, we are developing core transportation capabilities for the journey to Mars and ensuring continued access for our commercial crew and cargo partners to maintain operations and stimulate new economic activity in low-Earth orbit. This secured U.S. commercial access to low-Earth orbit allows NASA to continue leveraging the station as a microgravity test bed while preparing for missions in the proving ground of deep space and beyond. Through the Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM), we will demonstrate an advanced solar electric propulsion capability that will be a critical component of our journey to Mars. ARM will also provide an unprecedented opportunity for us to validate new spacewalk and sample handling techniques as astronauts investigate several tons of an asteroid boulder potentially opening new scientific discoveries about the formation of our solar system and beginning of life on Earth We are managing and directing the ground-based facilities and services provided by the Deep Space Network (DSN), Near Earth Network (NEN), andSpace Network (SN) critical communications capabilities that we continue to advance for human and robotic communication throughout the solar system. Through our robotic emissaries, we have already been on and around Mars for 40 years, taking nearly every opportunity to send orbiters, landers, and rovers with increasingly complex experiments and sensing systems. These orbiters and rovers have returned vital data about the Martian environment, helping us understand what challenges we may face and resources we may encounter. The revolutionary Curiosity sky crane placed nearly one metric ton about the size of a small car safely on the surface of Mars, but we need to be able to land at least 10 times that weight with humans and then be able to get them off the surface. These challenges are solvable, and NASA and its partners are working on the solutions every day so we can answer some of humanitys fundamental questions about life beyond Earth: Was Mars home to microbial life? Is it today? Could it be a safe home for humans one day? What can it teach us about life elsewhere in the cosmos or how life began on Earth? What can it teach us about Earths past, present and future? The journey to Mars is an historic pioneering endeavora journey made possible by a sustained effort of science and exploration missions beyond low-Earth orbit with successively more capable technologies and partnerships.

Watch: Elephant takes a stroll through a market

Citizens of the small Dutch town of Noordwijkerhout had a strange shock today when their little town market received a very unexpected visitor. Named Buba, the huge pachyderm had apparently just earlier strolled out of her circus in a nearby field and decided to do a little shopping. In a video captured by a surprised shopper, the elephant is seen quite literally checking out the stalls, trunk a-waving and apparently not very interested in the wares as such. In a short while her trainer came along and upon hearing her name, Buba apparently calmly followed him back to the circus. Circus Freiwald spokesman Gerard Guiking told the Ad.nl the 40-year-old elephant does not like to stay within her fences, but is “super sweet”. “She really is like a dog who goes sometimes to walk.” he said.

Kashmir unrest: Pak firing from shoulders of Hurriyat leaders, says Nirmal Singh

[India], Sept. 24 (ANI): Taking a strong exception to Pakistan for the recent Uri terror attack that claimed the lives of as many as 18 soldiers, Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Saturday said Islamabad is firing the gun from the shoulders of the Hurriyat leaders and it is solely responsible for the killings in the Valley.”Pakistan is firing the gun from the shoulders of the Hurriyat leaders and Uri was their direct act and they are talking like this to hide that. Pakistan is giving shelter to proclaimed terrorists like Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and Sayeed Salahudeen. Pakistan is responsible for the situation in Kashmir,” Singh told ANI.Singh further asserted that it was Pakistan’s cowardice and desperation which it wanted to hide.”Since 1947, Pakistan tried to de-stabilize Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan is solely responsible for the killings there. Pakistan is making the whole strategy for violence,” he added.Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier today met with the Indian Army, Air Force Chiefs of Staff and Naval Vice Admiral to discuss the prevailing security conditions.Besides discussing the prevailing security situation in the country, discussions were also held on India’s response to the Uri attack, in which New Delhi has held Islamabad responsible.Asserting that Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif left with an empty bag and with no support at the United Nations following his speech where he glorified Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, India’s permanent representative to the UN, Syed Akbaruddin said that India’s main issue of focus was terrorism and that there is a crescendo of support for counter-terrorism at the UN General Assembly.Last Sunday, a militant attack on an army base in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, has claimed the lives of eighteen soldiers.While 17 soldiers died on Sunday, the army confirmed that one more critically injured soldier succumbed to his injuries on Thursday, pushing the death toll to 18.The armed militants lobbed grenades into their tents and barracks, while the soldiers were sleeping. The ensuing fire led to a large number of casualties. Twenty-eight injured soldiers are being treated at a military hospital.While addressing at the 71st session UNGA, Pakistan Prime Minister Sharif said, “Burhan Wani, the young leader murdered by Indian forces, has emerged as the symbol of the latest Kashmiri Intifada, a popular and peaceful freedom movement, led by Kashmiris.”The Prime Minister also extended support to the demands of Kashmiri people for self determination and called on the UN Security Council to hold free and fair plebiscite.He further demanded an independent inquiry and a UN fact finding mission to investigate the situation in Kashmir.

Asia Grains-India’s wheat imports rise above 1 mln T as mills boost purchases

* India buys 150,000 T of wheat from Ukraine in recent deals * Cost of imported wheat below price of grains sold by govt SINGAPORE, Sept 23 (Reuters) – India’s wheat imports in theyear to June 2017 have risen above 1 million tonnes with millsstepping up purchases from Ukraine as the cost of imported wheatfalls below domestic prices. Traders have booked close to 150,000 of Ukrainian wheatsince the beginning of last week for shipment mainly in Octoberat about $192-$193 a tonne, including cost and freight, twotrade sources said. This includes purchases of 76,000 reported on Tuesday. “Imported wheat is much cheaper even if you include duty andother costs,” said one New Delhi-based trader with aninternational trading company. “Earlier, southern Indian millswere shipping it but now traders are bringing in wheat throughMumbai and Visakhapatnam ports as well.” Imported wheat from Ukraine will cost millers about 19,000rupees ($285) a tonne after taking into account import tariffand inland transport to the processing plants. This compareswith government’s sale price of around 21,000 rupees. “We expect more deals as Indian mills are active now,” saidone Singapore trader who is supplying wheat to Indian mills. Since June, the country has purchased about 700,000 tonnesfrom Australia, and deals signed with Ukraine have reached closeto 350,000 to 400,000 tonnes, traders said. Wheat traders and industry representatives in India expectthe country to step up international purchases significantlyover the coming months. Traders expect the country to buy close to 5 million tonnesin 2016/17. Global wheat prices are hovering close to a 10-yearlow of $3.86-3/4 a bushel, set at August-end, and Indianpurchases are expected to provide a floor under the market.
