The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) has urged the Australian government to increase funding for community broadcasters. CBAA is asking for an extra $AU14 million for “vital community broadcasting services.”

According to CBAA President Deborah Welch, community television is the training ground for the Australian media industry.

“It is the launching pad for the career of thousands of Australian musicians. It is an incredible source of local news, music and culture targeted specifically to local communities and produced by members of the community themselves,” Ms Welch said in a statement.

Stations broadcast a range of programs from religious programing, to car shows and sporting events. Several state based sporting leagues broadcast on community television stations. C31 Melbourne broadcasts an association football show called The Victoria Football Show; Queensland Community Television broadcasts AFL Queensland State League matches; and C31 Adelaide broadcasts Indoor Cricket & Netball and South Australian National Football League matches.

According to the CBAA, the primary income sources for community television stations are sponsorship announcements and community donations.

“The CBBA is calling on the Federal Government to commit $14 million in new funding for content production, infrastructure, training and sector co-ordination and planning,” Ms Walch says. “With $10.4 billion being spent on ‘strengthening the economy’ this is highly targeted $14 million will assist in skills development and employment pathways for many volunteers involved in local stations as well as strengthening local communities ability to sustain themselves in tough times.”

Australian Greens communications spokesperson Senator Scott Ludlum says, “[The] government should always be looking at ways to bring communities together, through sharing information and building partnerships.”

Bangladesh security tightened following Pilkhana massacre and Bashundhara City fire

Bangladesh security tightened following Pilkhana massacre and Bashundhara City fire

Following the Pilkhana massacre which occurred February 25 and 26 leaving 74 dead and the inferno at the Bashundhara City shopping mall complex March 13 leaving seven dead, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said security measures are being tightened countrywide across Bangladesh.

Fire drills will be enacted at all key-point installations (KPI). Fire fighting systems will be examined by the fire brigade and the public works department (PWD) to ensure functionality. Security measures will be enhanced supplementing areas under private security such as at the Bashundhara City Complex.

The Fire Service and Civil Defence Department requires modernization and needs new equipment to fight fires past the sixth floor of buildings. The Fire Brigade says it needs turntable ladders, snorkels, foam-tenders, lighting units, emergency tenders, fireproof uniforms, and rescue ropes for fire fighting and rescue operations. Transportation to fires is also an issue due to narrow roads, low electrical wires and congestion.

The Bangladesh National Building Code requires fire fighting equipment installed in buildings over seven floors. This code is to be monitored by authorities to ensure compliance with the new guidelines and to make sure buildings are being maintained.

The Bashundhara City Complex opened Monday for shoppers two days after Friday’s blaze. A probe is underway to determine the cause of the fire and to assess structural damage.

Loss of life was minimized as the blaze broke out on a Friday, the beginning of the weekend in Bangladesh, so offices in the upper floors were empty. The lower eight floors are used for shopping and the upper floors are all Bashundhara Group offices.

The mall is valued at Tk 7.0 billion (US$100 million). It is not known if the complex is covered by fire insurance.

It is estimated that it will take over two years to rebuild the area damaged by flames which were burned down to a skeleton. Bashundhara City’s technical advisor, Latifur Rahman, estimated damages at Tk 2.0 billion (US$29m).

Only one television cameraman has been allowed in to film the burnt area. None of the 2,500 shops, cinemas or cafes were burnt by the inferno. The seventh and eighth floors still experience smoke damage, and there was water damage to merchandise.

A three member committee is currently investigating the cause of the fire which will consist of Iqbal Khan Chowdhury, joint secretary of the ministry, representatives of the police, IGP Noor Muhammad, and fire brigade, Director General Abu Nayeem Md Shahidullah. The committee is required to report within the week with their findings. The forensics department is also sifting through the burnt remains.

The Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industries has also formed a committee which has begun interviewing witnesses and recording their testimony alongside the government committee.

It has been discovered that 150 closed circuit cameras were not being used when the fire started. Another mystery is why the mall fire fighting system has been found unused.

Why the fire burnt so fiercely is a matter to think….These matters seem to be mysterious

“In the shopping mall there is an ultra-technology elevator which runs even without electricity but we have found that locked,” Iqbal Khan Chowdhury, joint secretary (Police) of the home ministry, said. “Why the fire burnt so fiercely is a matter to think. We have to see if there was any incendiary substance there. These matters seem to be mysterious.”

Mall management has been asked to submit substances and items which would have been in the upper floors when the fire started. The fire erupted on the 17th floor and spread quickly to the two floors above and engulfed the three floors below. The aerial ladders belonging to the Fire Service and Civil Defence reached as high as the 13th floor of the 21-storey building.

Videos have been sent to the United States (US) for examination to assist in determining the cause of the fire and to help in the damage assessment. Experts from the US are expected to arrive soon.

Firefighters were brought to the rooftop of the 20-storey tower by helicopter. The only fatality in this operation was Baki Billa, a firefighter of Bashundhara City firefighting department, who fell when climbing down a rope from a helicopter to the roof of the building. Three other firefighters made the transition safely. At this same time, the chief security officer was safely rescued by the Bangladesh Air Force helicopter, a Bell 212. Six security officers of the complex also lost their lives.

Personal Skin Care Is A Routine

Personal Skin Care is a Routine

by

Charlesmckenz

However, the personal skin care is not very complicated and not so expensive (taking into account how beneficial it is). Skincare is the result of a routine or a procedure to ensure the needs of your skin.

Even before starting a routine, you should determine your skin type (fat, dry, sensitive, normal, etc) and select personal care products that suit the skin (you may need to experiment with some personal product care skin). Here is a routine that should work for most people with normal skin.

YouTube Preview Image

The first thing is a personal hygiene is ‘refining’. Three components of cleaning products are oil, water and surfactants (wetting agents). Oil and surfactants extract dirt and oil on the skin and the water flushing at the time, what your skin clean. You may need to try a couple of clean-up before finding one that suits you best. Should always use soap free cleanser. You should also use hot water for cleaning (hot and cold water, or for damage to the skin). Be careful not to over-cleanse the skin and ultimately harmful to the skin in the process.

The second thing on the routine care for skin exfoliation. Skin follows a natural maintenance process because it removes dead cells and replaces them with new skin cells. Exfoliation is just a means to facilitate the skin in this process. The dead skin cells are unable to meet the personal care of the skin, but still consume these products, thus preventing them from reaching the skin cells. Therefore, removing dead skin cells is important for enhancing the effectiveness of all personal care products for the skin. Generally, exfoliation takes place just after cleansing. As with any procedure for the personal skin care is important that you understand how much exfoliation you need. Exfoliate 4-5 times per week for fat / normal skin and 1-2 times per week for dry skin / sensitive. Exfoliate twice as hot and humid.

The next thing the routine of skin moisturizers personal care. This is one of the most important things in personal skin care. Even people with oily skin need moisturizers. Moisturizer not only seals the moisture of your skin cells, but also attracts moisture (from air) in case of need. Using too much moisturizer can clog the pores of the skin and end up harming your skin. The amount of moisturizer needed by your skin will be clear to you in a week you use a moisturizer. Also the use of moisturizer is best when the skin is still damp.

The last thing on skin care routine is sunscreen personal. A lot of moisturizers (day-time creams / moisturizers) come with UV protection – so you can get the double advantage of them. Moisturizers are recommended for every day (whether sunny or cloudy).

Again, experiment with various personal care products for skin and also by the amount you need to apply. This gives you the best results are the best recipe personal skin care for you. But if you have some kind of skin dilemma, it is best to consult your dermatologist before you actually start to use personal care products. For more information visit http://beautyskincare.us

Four more found guilty in 1993 Mumbai blasts case
By mYCZNbxh On June 13th, 2018

Monday, October 16, 2006

The TADA court in Mumbai held four accused guilty of assisting Tiger Memon in smuggling arms and RDX that were used in the serial blasts. Four others were acquitted for want of evidence. Muzamil Umar Kadri, Khalil Ahmed Sayyed Nazir and Gulam Hafeez Shaikh were convicted of helping land RDX on the Shekhadi coast in February 1993, and also for tranporting weapons and possessing illegal arms.

Tulsiram Dhondu Surve, watchman of high security Wangani microwave tower in Raigad district, was found guilty of allowing Tiger’s men to use government property for the purpose of loading arms into vehicles which then transported them to Mumbai. CBI investigations also revealed that Surve had concealed 59 bags of explosives in his field, before handing them over to the bombers. The watchman was convicted under Section 202 of the Indian Penal Code for “not informing authorities of the smuggling of arms and explosives despite having knowledge of the activities.”

Judge Kode, however, acquitted Anant Bhoir, who had allowed his dumper to be used for disposing of RDX in the Nagla Bunder Creek. The court said that Bhoir had not been aware that the sacks contained explosive material. The court also ruled that Bhoir and his co-accused’s confessions were inadmissible since they “appear to have been taken under duress.”

Avalanche in Canadian Rocky Mountains kills two
By mYCZNbxh On June 13th, 2018

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Two people in the Canadian Rocky Mountains were killed yesterday in an avalanche that struck an informal meeting of 200 snowmobilers. 30 others were hurt, and nineteen people were treated and released at a hospital.

According to reports, the incident occurred on Boulder Mountain near Revelstoke, British Columbia on Saturday at 15.30 local time; officials believe several more people may be trapped beneath the rubble.

“The Canadian Avalanche Centre [CAC] based in Revelstoke has had a warning for the last three weeks expressing extreme caution in the backcountry,” commented Revelstoke mayor David Raven, who noted that the gathering had not been authorised. “A fresh snowfall overnight exacerbated that warning. I know people have been cautioned again and again,” he said to CTV Newsnet. The CAC reports that there were ten avalanches in the vicinity since Friday.

Local police conducted a room-to-room search of a nearby hotel to establish whether anybody with the group was missing. Meanwhile, rescue teams dispatched helicopters to the mountain to see if it was safe to launch a more thorough ground search.
