Maldives says Sri Lanka most stable democracy in South Asia

Nasheed expressed these views after Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe delivered a speech at the People’s Majlis today while on an official visit to the country. In his speech Wickremesinghe noted that in both countries, executive power is vested in the President. But in Sri Lanka, it is the Cabinet of Ministers, which includes the President, that is in charge of the direction and control of the Government. The Maldives sees Sri Lanka as the most stable democracy in South Asia, the Speaker of the People’s Majlis of the Maldive Islands and former President Mohamed Nasheed said today.He said that Sri Lanka has never transferred power other than through democratic means and through elections. The Prime Minister also said that earlier, the President had the discretionary powers to appoint Ministers from among the Members of Parliament – contrary to the Westminster tradition of Parliament.However, he said the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, corrected this position by requiring the President to appoint Ministers on the advice of the Prime Minister.“This reinforced the collective responsibility of the Cabinet of Ministers to Parliament. Today, the major features of the Westminster Parliamentary Government exist side by side with an Executive Presidency – which we are committed to abolish due to its profound powers that have often been exploited and abused by its incumbents – with impunity,” he added. He also said that the 19th Amendment further strengthened Parliament by restricting the President’s powers to dissolve Parliament. The Prime Minister said that the President cannot dissolve Parliament for four and a half years unless Parliament requests a dissolution by a two-thirds majority.“In October 2018, the President purported to dissolve Parliament without such a resolution but the Supreme Court held that this dissolution to be unconstitutional,” he said.Wickremesinghe said that the 19th amendment was deemed necessary because of the flagrant violations of the constitution under the previous regime. (Colombo Gazette) The Cabinet of Ministers is also collectively responsible to the Parliament. The President is tasked with appointing as the Prime Minister, the person who is likely to command the most support in Parliament.“Furthermore, this position was upheld by the Court of Appeal in 2018 when it issued an interim order restraining Mahinda Rajapaksa, the former President, from functioning as Prime Minister, despite being appointed by the President, since 122 of the 225 Members of Parliament were opposed to him,” he said. read more

Brock researcher honoured by the Austrian Academy of Sciences

Brock Applied Linguistics Professor Gary Libben has been elected as a Corresponding Member to the Austrian Academy of Sciences.He received the prestigious designation at a ceremony in Vienna on May 10.“I am extremely honoured by this,” said Libben, Chair of Brock’s Department of Applied Linguistics. “The Austrian Academy of Sciences is a truly wonderful organization whose mission it is to promote science in every way.”Libben was one of six non-Austrian members, and the only non-European member, elected this year.He has a long-standing association with the Austrian Academy of Sciences, that country’s leading non-university institution for science and research focusing on knowledge transfer and basic research.The Austrian Academy of Sciences is an official partner in the Words in the World international language research project Libben created with funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).Libben has also been a visiting professor several times at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Vienna, where he has ongoing collaborations. “I have the pleasure of working with wonderful colleagues and students in Vienna,” says Libben. “When I cannot visit in person, we hold regular Skype meetings. Those meetings bring together students at Brock and University of Vienna, which I think is a great opportunity on both sides.”The key to this kind of work, says Libben, is a sustained research partnership. He gives the example of his collaboration with his University of Vienna colleague, Professor of Linguistics Wolfgang Dressler.“So far, he and I have published 16 papers together,” says Libben. “The majority of those papers have included students as co-authors. Our most recent work, presented last year at the annual meeting of the Canadian Linguistics Association, has two Brock students and three University of Vienna students as co-authors.”Libben’s recognition by the Austrian Academy of Sciences follows his receipt of the National Achievement Award from the Canadian Linguistics Association in 2017. He is Director of the Words in the World SSHRC Partnership Grant and has been a member of the Royal Society of Canada since 2008.   “I feel myself to be extremely privileged,” says Libben. “I work with fantastic students and colleagues from whom I get to learn new things every day and have the opportunity to break new ground on both pure and applied language research. What could be more fun than that?” read more

Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorHead coach Urban Meyer released a statement on Friday discussing his demeanor during the press conference announcing his three-game suspension from the football program on Wednesday.In this statement, Meyer apologized to Courtney Smith, ex-wife of former Ohio State assistant coach Zach Smith, who was fired on July 23 for domestic violence allegations.“Let me say here and now what I should have said on Wednesday: I sincerely apologize to Courtney Smith and her children for what they have gone through,” Meyer said in the statement.Meyer also said he reminds coaches and players of the seriousness of domestic violence and he extends empathy to all women, men and families affected by domestic violence.Meyer said his “words and demeanor” during Wednesday’s press conference did not depict his concern towards the allegations.“I was taught at a very young age that if I ever hit a woman I would be kicked out of the house and never welcomed back,” Meyer said in the statement. “I have the same rule in my house and in the Football Program at Ohio State.”Meyer said in the statement, through what he considers as a learning experience, he fully intends to use his voice to more effectively be a part of a solution to domestic violence.Meyer was suspended for three games, and can return to the team following the Sept. 1 game against Oregon State for weekly practices.

Cummins brands Stage V offhighway engines as Performance Series

first_imgCummins ultra-clean Stage V engines are to be called Performance Series. Available from 3.8 to 15 litre displacement and 100 hp to 675 hp (75-503 kW) they deliver strong solutions for construction, agriculture, mining and material handing applications with class leading levels of power and torque.“Cummins’ solution has achieved the near-zero emissions levels as demanded by Stage V. All our Stage V engines are in production, some of them ahead of the legislated date of January 2020. It is unclear what the plans are for off-highway emission regulations beyond this, so we have decided to rename these products to highlight what they bring to the market. They are delivering more with less for our customers. More performance with lower installation costs for OEMs and lower running costs for operators. So, they will be called Performance Series moving forward,” said Alexei Ustinov Vice President Cummins Off-Highway Engine Business.The 4-cylinder F3.8 and B4.5 Performance Series engines achieve remarkable increases in power and torque, giving manufacturers the opportunity to improve machine capability and offer more value to their customers. Alternatively, there is a potential to downsize the engine to one of lower displacement, reducing costs while preserving the productivity of their existing machines.The 3.8-litre moves up from 130 hp (97 kW) to 173 hp (129 kW) with the new architecture, 33% higher. The 4.5-litre engine jumps 16% from 173 hp (129 kW) to 200 hp (149 kW). Peak torque of the F3.8 increases by more than 31%, to 620 Nm, and an 11% increase moves the B4.5 up to 780 Nm.The F3.8 also features in Cummins HPP (Hybrid Power Plug-in) concept. Moving forward, Cummins will offer full electric and diesel-electric solutions as part of a wide portfolio of power solutions. The HPP offers a balance of battery power with a compact engine-generator. It works in the same manner as a full electric driveline but has both an F3.8 Performance Series powered generator and plug-in options for charging. It gives much more flexibility where charging infrastructure is more challenging.“The HPP solution lowers total emissions, with the opportunity to operate at zero or near-zero emissions during the shift. Noise and fuel consumption is reduced, using a smaller engine, operating for less time,” continued Ustinov.Moving up the range, the 6-cylinder B6.7 Performance Series engine surges ahead with up to 326 hp and a peak torque of 1375 Nm – a 30% increase over its predecessor. The L9 9-litre Performance Series engine increases power from 400 hp (298 kW) up to 430 hp (321 kW), with a 13% increase in peak torque to 1846 Nm.“The higher torque capability of the Performance Series engines, particularly low in the rev range, makes them more responsive meaning the work gets done quicker which improves productivity,” added Ustinov.The integration of Cummins Stage V Single Module™ aftertreatment system with leading combustion and air handling technology allows EGR to be removed from the F3.8, B4.5, B6.7 and L9 engines. The Single Module™ combines DPF, SCR and urea-dosing technologies in one unit, providing up to 40 percent reduction in envelope size and 20 percent reduction in weight compared to earlier products. This offers OEMs a simpler installation with lower installed costs.Removing EGR offers additional benefits for equipment manufacturers. The same Cummins engine platform can be applicable for sales to multiple emissions standards, from Stage V and Tier 4 Final, all the way down to unregulated levels. Each machine can have the same electronic integration and mechanical hookups, with or without exhaust aftertreatment. This give installation commonality and manufacturing flexibility to OEMs, saving cost.At the top of the range the X12 and X15 engines deliver heavy duty power from 335 to 675 hp (250-503 kW) for larger industrial equipment.“All Performance Series engines are available as Power Units which are more than 70% pre-approved for installation including the engine, exhaust aftertreatment, cooling system, hoses, air cleaner and mounting,” concluded Ustinov.last_img read more

first_imgDERMOT O’LEARY, General Secretary of the National Bus & Railworkers’ Union, has vowed to go ahead with train strikes planned for the the weekends of the All-Ireland football and hurling finals.Speaking to TheJournal.ie today, O’Leary was reacting to new Transport Minister Paschal Donohoe’s first public intervention in a dispute over pay cuts between Irish Rail and its workers.“As long as the company maintains its position in relation to these cuts,” said O’Leary, “the strikes will go ahead as planned.”The National Bus & Railworkers’ Union (NBRU) recently announced that Irish Rail workers will conduct a two-day work stoppage starting on 24 August, the day of the first All-Ireland football semi-final, and further strikes on 7 and 21 September, the days of both All-Ireland finals.‘Slap in the face’Donohoe, who became Transport and Tourism minister in the recent cabinet reshuffle, told the Sunday Independent yesterday that such actions would be “a slap in the face” to taxpayers.The minister also insisted he would not be negotiating with Irish Rail workers regarding pay cuts that have already been put in place by other transport workers.He added that the wage cuts were “vital to the maintenance of services the company provides.”The NBRU chief, however, remained firm in his convictions in a statement sent to TheJournal.ie today: The fact the minister conveniently ignores is that the government has reduced the funding stream which is crucial to providing a public service by €32 million since coming into office, coupled with a €41 million reduction by the previous regime has reduced funding right back to 1998 levels.O’Leary also highlighted what he called “a distinct lack of trust” among rail workers towards both Irish Rail and the government.Irish Rail, for its part, has insisted that the pay cuts are necessary to help make up a €108 million fall in the company’s annual income since the beginning of the economic crisis.Read: Strike by Irish Rail workers to hit All-Ireland semi and finals>Union withdraws from Irish Rail talks as ‘no serious attempts made to address concerns’>last_img read more
