The first steps have been taken in the effort to have the Metropolitan Area Networks’s for broadband lit in Buncrana and Carndonagh, Deputy Charlie McConlogue now believes.His comments came following a successful public meeting last night in Buncrana, which was organised by Deputy McConalogue and where local businesses and public sector organisations where represented along with other public representatives.Commenting on the meeting McConalogue said, “It was a productive meeting in that it was about communicating the benefits of the networks to organisations. “Niall Beirne, the e|net representative gave us a full overview of where the networks are currently at. It was informative and it highlighted the further need to work together to make the business case to have the MAN’s lit”.“By working together we can not only communicate the benefits of the networks but also work towards bringing down the costs of the service which are an inhibiting factor at present.“Key to this is to further determine the real level of demand which exists both among private organisations and publically owned organisations. The meeting last night was a useful first step in this process.“It is unacceptable that we are in a situation whereby we have the infrastructure available to us but not in a position to use it. “We need to move towards a solution to this and I believe the interest and support shown to date has been heartening and a collective effort will be instrumental in achieving a result”, concluded McConalogue.EndsMCCONALOGUE PRAISES FIRST STEPS TO HIGH SPEED BROADBAND NETWORKS was last modified: September 27th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:broadbanddeputy charlie mcconalogue
Anukta Mukherjee Ghosh’s magical strokes breathe a symphony of the world around her, as she goes about celebrating life through her colours. Like a child looks at the wonders of the world, experiencing even the ordinary with an amazement, Anukta’s canvas brings to life a fresh perspective – transforming the mundane to the extraordinary.’India on Canvas: A brush with our diversity’ is an exhibition of few such phenomenal works by Anukta. The solo art show will be held from September 6-8, at WelcomArt Gallery, ITC Sonar Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe horizon of her works is beyond the boundaries of categorisation. Just as many India(s) breathe within one India, Anukta gives an ode to that versatility through her works. Ever inspired by the spaces she inhabits, the places she visits and the people she meets, her works are mostly personal insights and associations from the ordinary to the obvious. Colours, forms and lines play a special interest in her works done mostly in contemporary realistic style. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardRising above from her corporate avatar of over a decade, Anukta bid adieu to her successful career and embarked on a new adventure to complete a two year online Diploma course in drawing and painting with a certificate of distinction from the London School of Art, while also honing her skills through guidance from professional artists. For Anukta, painting is not merely about the end result. Between the first brush stroke to the last, what brings her joy is the meditative and spiritual process of losing oneself to the subconscious. In a world that is standing at the brink of chaos, Anukta believes in the redemptive power of art. Her strokes cast a magical spell of positivity and cheerfulness on the audience, reaching not only to the heart but the very soul of those who take respite in art. Anukta’s paintings have been exhibited across India and abroad. Her paintings and commissioned projects find home all across the globe for corporates and individuals alike. For example, Image of her painting ‘Magan’ has been adapted by the Government of India in 2019, for a period of five years as a mascot for its recently launched Pan India project called Womaniya on GeM – supporting woman entrepreneurs and SHGs.The image is currently on the home page of the Govt. e–market website. She has been recently felicitated by the then Union Minister of Commerce and Industries, Mr Suresh Prabhu at a National Launch of the project. One of her paintings from her series ‘My Brush with Bollywood’ found a feature and favourable mention by Amitabh Bachchan in his official blog in February 2018. She has recently done an artwork titled ‘Kolkata Kaleidoscope’ for the public area of the newly launched, super luxury hotel ITC Royal Bengal, as part of an art camp hosted by ITC Ltd., comprising some of the leading artists of Bengal.

1:40 0 Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment Share your voice Google, Twitter and Facebook all signed the Christchurch Call. Getty Images Tech giants and political leaders from around the globe came together in Paris on Wednesday to pledge their commitment to tackling the spread of terrorist content online, following the attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March.In a summit hosted jointly by French President Emmanuel Macron and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, companies including Facebook, Twitter and Google agreed to sign the “Christchurch Call.” The pledge was created in response to the New Zealand terrorist using Facebook to livestream part of the murders of 51 people at two mosques. The tech giants also agreed to a nine-point plan that outlined ways they’re going to work more collaboratively than they have in the past to combat this problem.The move highlights how tech companies plan to take action after failing to stop the live video of the New Zealand attack from spreading on social media sites. The video was viewed many times around the world before it was removed. More than a month after the attack, videos of the attack were still found to be circulating online, illustrating just how hard it is for tech companies to control the spread of viral tragedies. Eight tech companies signed the Christchurch Call, including Microsoft, Amazon and YouTube, along with 17 national governments and the EU. But one significant name is missing from the list of supporters — the White House announced it would not be signing the commitment due to free speech concerns.The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy issued a statement that said while the US supports the goals of the Christchurch Call, it’s “not currently in a position to join the endorsement.””We continue to be proactive in our efforts to counter terrorist content online while also continuing to respect freedom of expression and freedom of the press,” the statement reads.Supporters of the call said in a joint statement that signing the pledge will strengthen partnerships between governments, society and tech companies.”Terrorism and violent extremism are complex societal problems that require an all-of-society response,” supporters said in the statement. Tech giants also said they would be taking actions individually to combat terrorist content. That includes updating their rules against terrorist content, giving users ways to report terrorist and violent extremist content, investing in technology, checking who is livestreaming and publishing reports that include the amount of terrorist and violent content that’s detected and removed. The companies could vet who is streaming a live video by including ratings for people who use the tool and looking at an account’s activity. On Tuesday, Facebook said it would ban users from livestreaming for a period of time if they’ve broken certain rules on the social network, including its policy against terrorist content. The company has pushed back against other ideas though, such as delaying the broadcast of a live video. The companies that support the pledge also outlined steps that will help them work better together. Those actions include sharing data and tools to improve technology aimed at combating terrorist content and educating users about how to report the offensive content and why they shouldn’t spread it online. The companies also plan to support research into combatting hate and bigotry and creating a system for responding quickly to an emerging or active event.

WWE WebsiteArguably the greatest figure in the history of pro-wrestling, The Undertaker, is coming back to WWE’s flagship weekly program SmackDown. He would be part of a special episode that would take place at the iconic Madison Square Garden on September 10.This would be a special moment for the former World Heavyweight Champion as it would be his first appearance on an episode of SmackDown at the legendary arena. September 10 would also be special because both Raw and SmackDown will take place back-to-back at the same venue.The Undertaker had been out of action for a substantial amount of time at the beginning of the year and also was absent from Wrestlemania 35. In this time, he appeared out of character on some non-WWE shows. Eventually, WWE decided to re-sign the superstar and agreed on a highly-lucrative contract for the Deadman.Since then, the superstar has made numerous appearances on WWE and has also competed in two matches. His contest with Goldberg had turned out to be a complete disaster while a tag-team match, with Roman Reigns as his partner, against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre fared better.WWE has also teased a storyline between the Phenom and Hall of Famer Sting. Only time will tell whether this appearance of Undertaker would lead to a new feud.
There are many restaurants to please the Punjabi palette in the Capital, but then there are also classics. Nestled in the post Chanakyapuri locale, we took time to check out Garam Masala, a part of the Forte Grand complex. The complex has the restrobar Garam Masala, a kebab and grill lounge Pepper and a banquet hall as well. The enclosed space is also perfect for out-door parties if the weather is right. But in the terrible Delhi humidity and heat, the AC interiors worked best. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Garam Masala can be described as the perfect family restaurant, it has very comfortable seating arrangements that provide the right amount of comfort and privacy. If you want to take your family out for a nice meal, this is it!Serving a great variety of Indian dishes, the restaurant also holds its own with some Chinese options. The kebabs are a must try, we suggest the chicken tikkas which were quite perfect. If you want something else as well – the dry chilli chicken is what you can pick. They also have a great fish tandoori. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixOf the Indian breads the Lal Mirch Parantha was very well made and it went perfectly with the dal makhni. The parantha is a must try, it is light, flaky and not as spicy as it looks. We have always been a little partial about restaurants that make their dals well and Garam Masala is definitely one of the places that do.What you definitely must not miss are the desserts. Garam Masala dishes out some great Indian deserts like the ever-favourite gulab jamun, rasmalai and the moong ka halwa. After a scrumptious Indian meal, nothing goes better than a nice cold piece of rasmalai. The place also has a very well stocked bar so pick your poison with the meal. A meal for two comes to about Rs 1200 (without taxes and alcohol). Great location, great food and some very comfortable time out – head over.
