CEO Dawn Farrell says the company has committed to phase out its coal-fired power plants years ahead of Alberta government deadlines.Speaking at the company’s annual meeting Thursday, Farrell said the company will shut some coal units by 2018, while converting others to natural gas to be free of coal-fired power plants by the end of 2023, six years ahead of a deadline set by the provincial government.The move comes after what the board of directors said was the most significant period in many years as the company reached an agreement with the Alberta government on compensation for phasing out coal.The board awarded Farrell $2.73 million in incentive compensation as part of her $7.39 million total compensation for what it said was extraordinary leadership, but shareholders disagreed, voting Thursday against a non-binding resolution on the executive compensation plan with 53 per cent opposed.The coal phase-out plan has TransAlta (TSX:TA) shutting down the 560 megawatts of generation from Sundance Unit 1 and 2 by the start of 2018, two years ahead of a federally required date, while applying to keep open the option of restarting Unit 2 between 2019 and 2021.The company has also committed to convert three other Sundance units and two Keephills units, representing about 2,400 megawatts of capacity, from coal to gas by 2023, which it says will extend the life of the units into the mid-2030s.Farrell said TransAlta would immediately start securing the up to 700 million cubic feet of gas per day that will be required to power the plants, including construction of a needed pipeline.TransAlta is also working to move forward on its Brazeau hydro expansion project in Alberta, but because of a cap on the province’s utility market share, Farrell said the company is looking elsewhere for other expansion projects.The Alberta government has committed to phasing out coal-fired power plants by 2030, and has a target of 30 per cent of power coming from renewables by then.Besides its Alberta assets, TransAlta also has generating capacity in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, as well as in the United States and Australia. read more

Consumers, food retailers and governments can take simple actions to dramatically reduce some 1.3 billion tons of food waste every year, according to a new campaign launched today by the United Nations and its partners.Launched by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and partners, the campaign – ‘Think, Eat, Save. Reduce Your Foodprint’ – seeks to accelerate action to eliminate wasteful practices and help countries share successful initiatives on these issues. It specifically targets food wasted by consumers, retailers and the hospitality industry.“In a world of seven billion people, set to grow to nine billion by 2050, wasting food makes no sense – economically, environmentally and ethically,” said UNEP’s Executive Director, Achim Steiner. “To bring about the vision of a truly sustainable world, we need a transformation in the way we produce and consume our natural resources.”About one-third of all food produced globally, worth around $1 trillion, gets lost or wasted in food production and consumption systems, according to FAO. Food loss occurs mostly at the production stages – harvesting, processing and distribution – while food waste typically takes place at the retailer and consumer end of the food supply chain.Roughly 95 per cent of food loss and waste in developing countries are due to unintentional losses at early stages of the food supply chain as a result of limitations in harvesting techniques, storage, packaging and marketing systems. In the developed world, however, food waste occurs because consumers are quick to throw away food due to over-buying, inappropriate storage, and preparing meals that are too large, while food manufacturers are retailers produce waste because of inefficient practices, confusion over date labels and quality standards that overemphasize appearance.“In industrialized regions, almost half of the total food squandered, around 300 million tons annually, occurs because producers, retailers and consumers discard food that is still fit for consumption,” said FAO’s Director-General, José Graziano da Silva. “This is more than the total net food production of Sub-Saharan Africa, and would be sufficient to feed the estimated 870 million people hungry in the world.”In Europe and North America, the average waste per consumer is between 95 and 115 kilograms per year, while consumers in sub-Saharan Africa, south and Southeast Asia each throw away only six to 11 kilograms annually. “If we can help food producers to reduce losses through better harvesting, processing, storage, transport and marketing methods, and combine this with profound and lasting changes in the way people consume food, then we can have a healthier and hunger-free world,” Mr. da Silva added.The campaign will seek to involve families, supermarkets, hotel chains, schools, sports and social clubs, the private sector, city mayors and world leaders to reach its food potential. It will also provide simple tips in its website that will allow users to make food waste pledges, and a platform for those running campaigns to exchange ideas and create a global culture of sustainable consumption of food. read more

first_imgThe Washington Business Alliance has little interest in partisan politics even in this year’s heightened political climate, but instead suggests that Washingtonians tap business expertise to help solve some of the state’s most vexing social, economic, and environmental challenges.That was the message from two of the alliance’s leaders, former Starbucks Coffee International president Howard Behar and alliance executive director Roz Solomon, who spoke Wednesday to the Rotary Club of Vancouver. Behar, a co-founder of the alliance and vice chairman of its board, said the organization sees its role not as a critic of government, but a helper, in order to get the state moving economically.Behar, an early Starbucks employee who guided its international expansion into 57 countries, said government leaders need to establish plans and set big goals. But the most important improvement in government, Behar said, would be for agencies to “focus on achievement” in their operations.“We realized that’s what was missing in state government,” he said. Oregon is a leader in embracing an achievement-oriented approach to government services, Behar said, and other states have begun embracing the concept that is a foundation of business operations.The alliance has structured its own work by creating committees in five key areas of statewide concern: education, the environment, fiscal governance, health, and transportation.

COPY LINKAD Loading … India has lost out on the right to host the junior Davis Cup and Fed Cup due to the closure of Pakistan’s air space in the aftermath of the Balakot air strikes, reports The Hindu, quoting a source from the national federation who is privy to the developments.Including the Pakistani contingent, a total of 16 Davis Cup teams from across the globe were slated to travel to India to participate in the annual U-16 tournament which is often dubbed as the World Cup of the sport. The junior Davis Cup was to be held at the DLTA complex in Delhi from April 8-13 while the Fed cup matches were scheduled from April 15-20.”Pakistan’s air space was locked down at that time and airports (in India) were also on high alert. No one knew for how long the uncertain situation will prevail. So, a consensus emerged that it’s best to shift the venue and India could host tournaments in future,” a highly-placed source was quoted as saying by The Hindu. Rafael Nadal and Marc Lopez were too strong for Lender Paes and Saketh MyneniIANSThe source said logistics became a big issue for almost all the participating countries.”Since the air space was locked, the flights had to take a detour, which meant increase in cost and more travel time. For instance, Kazakhstan would have taken three-four extra hours to reach New Delhi in the prevailing situation.””So there was a discussion among the International Tennis Federation (ITF), hosts All India Tennis Association (AITA), Asian Tennis Federation (ATF) and a few other stakeholders and it was decided that for the time being, it was prudent to shift the venue. It’s not that India is not a secure place but due to the uncertainty caused by the tension between the two neighbours, everyone felt that it’s a fair call to take the tournament somewhere else,” said the source, privy to the developments.Both the tournaments have been shifted to Bangkok, Thailand and according to another source, who claimed anonymity, this shift has saved India of a potentially sticky situation as there would be a big problem granting visas to the travelling Pakistani contingent.”If the venue was not changed, AITA had to ensure that Pakistan athletes are provided visas. And in prevailing situation, no one can give that guarantee. So it’s wise decision by AITA to agree to the arrangement,” the official said.When the ITF was approached for a comment, an official said, “I would like to inform you that the host nation decided to change the official venue to Bangkok. We were contacted by the ATF of (sic) the venue change for the Asia/Oceania final qualifying event.” Tensions between India and Pakistan are at an all-time high since the February 14 attack in J&K’s Pulwama.ReutersCommenting on the situation, the Secretary-General of All India Tennis Association Hironmoy Chatterjee claimed that AITA failed to raise funds for the tournament which is why it was shifted to Bangkok.”Raising funds for tennis tournaments is very difficult in this country. We had recently hosted the Davis Cup in Kolkata and now we are short of funds. The government also does not help so we informed the ITF that we can’t host it,” Mr Chatterjee said.The Pulwama terror attack which occurred on February 14 has caused massive political tension between India and Pakistan. The tragic incident was carried out by Pakistani-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed and claimed the lives of 40 CRPF jawans.center_img Australian Open 2019: Novak Djokovic Wins Final Over Rafael Nadallast_img read more

first_imgEvery Tuesday during the NFL season, Colin puts out his Herd Hierarchy NFL power rankings, and there are some big shifts after Week 7.This week, the Bills and Texans move back into the Top 10; the Chiefs continue to drop; and the Broncos, Vikings, and Panthers drop out.Here are his Top 10 teams after Week 7:10. Buffalo Bills – Buffalo squeaks in at 10 because even though Colin thinks Tyrod Taylor has limitations, they run the ball down opponents’ throats with LeSean McCoy, who just had his first multiple touchdown game of the season. For the second straight week, the @Eagles are No. 1 in @ColinCowherd‘s #HerdHierarchy pic.twitter.com/tC5BRvkVil— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) October 24, 2017 8. Houston Texans – The Texans have taken off since Deshaun Watson took over, and this week they get All-Pro LT Duane Brown from a holdout. Since Will Fuller returned in Week 4, Deshaun Watson has a Passer Rating of 118.3, 12 TD, and only 2 Interceptions. Fuller has 5 receiving touchdowns since returning to the lineup.Even though Colin has them ranked 8th, he thinks they have a legitimate shot to contend for the AFC if they keep improving. Houston keeps getting stronger. Advertisement 7. Pittsburgh Steelers – Colin was critical of the Steelers early, but they’ve come on since getting embarrassed by the Jags. They’re the only team in NFL outgaining their opponents by 100 yards per game, and have smartly started to pound LeVeon Bell in the run game.They also allow the fewest yards per play in the NFL (4.44), and haven’t allowed more than 313 yards in a game. Pittsburgh is rounding into form. 6. Dallas Cowboys – The Cowboys are averaging 33.7 PPG, 449.7 YPG, while converting 56.8% of their 3rd Downs over their last 3 games, and are one of only 2 teams ranked in the Top 5 in 3rd Down and Red Zone offense.The biggest surprise is their pass rush. They’re the only team in NFL averaging 14 QB Pressures per game. Dallas looks like they’re finally starting to hit on all cylinders after a slow start. 9. Kansas City Chiefs – The Chiefs keep dropping after coming back to Earth from a hot start. Offense isn’t the problem. Alex Smith leads the NFL in Passer Rating (120.5) and Kareem Hunt leads the NFL in Total Yards Per Game (143.1). As a team, they lead the NFL in Yards Per Play (6.48) and Points Per Drive (2.66), but their defense has been exposed by allowing over 470 Yards Per Game in back-to-back losses.Colin loves Andy Reid, but the Chiefs need to figure out how to stop people. 2. Seattle Seahawks – Seattle has the NFL’s best Scoring Defense (15.7) & Red Zone Defense (28.6%), and Russell Wilson is completing 70.6% of his passes at 8.11 Yards Per Pass with a 102.0 Passer Rating during the Seahawks 3-game win streak. Seattle is also 1 of only 2 teams allowing an average Passer Rating below 70. Seattle is always dominant defensively and starting to look better offensively. 3. New England Patriots – Belichick has improved a defense which was atrocious to start the year. In the last three weeks, they’re giving up 12.7 PPG, 94.7 Rushing Yards Per Game, 38.5 3rd Down Percentage, and 36.4 Red Zone Percentage. All drastic improvements from the first 4 weeks of the season.Tom Brady is the only QB that’s thrown for 2,000 yards, and New England is the only team with 5 different players with 25+ receptions. New England always gets better in the second half of the season. 5. New Orleans Saints – New Orleans has traditionally had an awful defense, but they’re only allowing 4.66 yards per play over their last 4 games, and have only allowed 6 drives to reach the Red Zone in that stretch. Even though Drew Brees has thrown 2 Interceptions in each of his last 2 games, there’s no reason to think he won’t snap that slump.If the Saints D can continue shutting down opponents, they’ll continue to hang around the Hierarchy. Philadelphia Eagles –The Eagles grab the top spot for the second week in a row as Carson Wentz  continues his rapid rise to superstardom. Wentz’s 133.1 Passer Rating on 3rd Down leads the NFL, and in addition to Philly ranking 2nd in the NFL in Time of Possession, they’ve also scored 27 points in the final 2 minutes of the 2nd Half (most in NFL). The loss of tackle Jason Peters is significant, and hurts going forward, but Philly is the best NFL team, right now. The Buffalo D has only allowed 5 touchdown passes on the year (2nd fewest in the NFL) and Colin likes their pass rush. They also lead the NFL in Turnover Differential (+10). The Bills aren’t built for shootouts, but they’re run game and D is what gets them in the Top 10. 4. Los Angeles Rams – They’re the only team in NFL averaging 30 ppg, and Todd Gurley has rushed for 100 yards 4 times – the Rams are 4-0 in those games, and 5-0 when they run the ball more than 22 times. The Ram defense is 2nd in the NFC with 23 Sacks.Jared Goff has struggled over his last 4 – 53.9% Completion Percentage, 6.40 Yards Per Pass, 4 TD, 3 INT, 74.2 Passer Rating. That’s a concern, but Colin is still a believer in the Rams.last_img read more

first_imgTom Brady is New England’s systemTom Brady critics have called him a product of Bill Belichick and the Patriots system, and there are other quarterbacks that could duplicate his success. Colin vehemently disagrees and today pointed out that plenty of top assistants have left New England for other jobs with the blueprint to copy it but never have. The reality is that Brady makes the system work with his leadership, pre-snap adjustments, and precision execution of the offense. In a copycat league, no one can copy the Patriots’ system because they don’t have Brady to run it. Brady isn’t a system QB, he is the system.

first_imgUsing GParted in GNU/Linux for beginners by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on August 28, 2017 in Linux – 6 commentsGParted is one of the if not the most popular partitioning tool for GNU/Linux, when it comes to GUI tools. Powerful, easy to navigate, and straight to the point; GParted does what needs doing and it does it well. However, for users who aren’t familiar with it, or are not used to doing custom partition work; it still might seem a little daunting.This article is  an overview of GParted to help new users understand how to use it.InstallationGParted often comes pre-installed on many distributions that use GNOME, Cinnamon, or other GTK based environments. However, if you don’t have it, installation is as simple as installing the package ‘gparted’ with your package manager, and is available in every main repository that I know of.Using GPartedOnce installed, GParted is usually found in your applications menu under ‘System Tools’, and will require your root password upon launch. Once it’s started, you’ll be shown a screen like the screenshot below. I’ve highlighted certain areas, which are listed below:The currently selected drive/deviceA Visual representation of the partition schemeA list of the partitions / the schemeThe number of operations pending to be completed by GPartedGParted can work with any device that is capable of being partitioned, from USB Flash drives and external drives, to internal Hard Disks, etc.The image above shows that the currently selected drive is partitioned to have a 500mb /boot partition, and 931.02GB used for the rest of my system, which is an encrypted LVM (Logical Volume Manager, think of it as a sort of psuedo RAID setup, or a dynamic partition that can be modified,resized, deleted etc, while your system is running.)However, for this example article I will be partitioning a small USB Flash Drive. So, we click the device selector (#1) and select the drive that we want.As you can see from this image, the drive currently has a small partition on it, so we will use GParted to delete the partition. To do so, simply right click the partition you want, and select “Delete.”GParted will automatically change to reflect what you did (although it hasn’t ACTUALLY happened yet) so you’ll have a visual representation to look at.Next, let’s Make two new partitions; one will be ext4 and the other will be NTFS. Right click on the unallocated space, and select “New.” A window will pop up where you can select the size, name, format, whether you want it to be a primary partition, logical, or extended, etc.Generally you’ll want to keep most settings as default unless you know what you are specifically aiming for, like logical volumes. The image below shows me setting up a 4000MB ext4 partition.Once that is done, I need to repeat the process but change the format. GParted automatically set to use the remainder of the free unallocated space for me, however if you don’t want to use all of the space available, that can be changed like we did the first time.Once finished, GParted is ready to proceed with the changes we have queued. However, before we proceed, make extra sure to review the pending operations and make sure that what GParted is about to do, is what you want. Make sure its the right drive, the right formats, etc; mistakes can be fatal if done to the wrong device!If you are sure you are set, then click the bright green checkmark button! GParted will warn you the same warning I just gave you….Click Apply when you are ready!If all goes well, you will now have done what you set out to do! In conclusionGParted can do much, much more, but for beginners this is what you need to know. But always remember to double and triple check your pending operations before you do anything! Making backups is always a good idea too!SummaryArticle NameUsing GParted in GNU/Linux for beginnersDescriptionOur Linux guy Mike explains in Using GParted in GNU/Linux for beginners how to get started with the Linux partitioning tool.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

first_img November 20, 2016 581 Views The Week Ahead: Will First-Time Buyers Step Up Again? in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Existing-Home Sales First-Time Homebuyers 2016-11-20 Seth Welborncenter_img A push from first-time buyers reversed a two-month decline in existing-home sales in September, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).The first-time buyer share of 34 percent in September was the highest in four years, and it pushed the pace of existing-home sales up by 3.2 percent to an adjusted annual rate of 5.47 million.Will first-time buyers continue to drive existing-home sales upward in the face of shrinking inventory and rising prices? The industry will find out on Tuesday, November 22, when NAR publishes its October existing-home sales report.“There’s hope the leap in sales to first-time buyers can stick through the rest of the year and into next spring,” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said. “The market fundamentals—primarily consistent job gains and affordable mortgage rates—are there for the steady rise in first-timers needed to finally reverse the decline in the homeownership rate.”Inventory remains an issue, however.“Inventory has been extremely tight all year and is unlikely to improve now that the seasonal decline in listings is about to kick in,” Yun said. “Unfortunately, there won’t be much relief from new home construction, which continues to be grossly inadequate in relation to demand.”New Home Sales—HUD/Census Bureau, Wednesday, November 23Sales of newly-constructed homes had a solid month in September, with a 3 percent increase over-the-month and a 30 percent increase over-the-year up to an annual rate of 593,000, according to a joint report from HUD and the Census Bureau.New home sales were still well below their historical norms, however.“If we look past the monthly volatility by using the 12-month rolling total of new home sales, September was the best month since August 2008,” said Trulia chief economist Ralph McLaughlin. “By historical standards, however, new home sales per household are still about 36 percent below the long-run average.”Will they move up further toward that historical benchmark in October?

conservatives on forming a government after their leader made an impassioned plea for a free hand to work for a social “United States of Europe” Social Democratic Party (SPD) members vote during an SPD party convention in Berlin Germany December 7 2017 REUTERS/Fabrizio BenschThe vote clears the way for talks that could resolve the impasse into which Europe’s economic powerhouse was plunged after Merkel and the SPD shed support in a September election greatly complicating the parliamentary arithmetic Martin Schulz urged reluctant centre-left SPD members to be open to Merkel’s overtures to renew the coalition that has governed for the past four years saying the party had a responsibility to revive social democracy in Germany A new “grand coalition” with the reluctant SPD is Merkel’s best hope of extending her 12 years in power after talks with two smaller parties failed giving the smaller SPD greater leverage in any negotiations “The question isn’t grand coalition or no grand coalition” he said in a speech to his party’s biennial congress “Nor minority government or fresh elections No – it’s about how we exercise our responsibility including to the next generation” Schulz said the party would only recover if it could offer a clear vision of a Germany and a Europe that worked for their citizens calling for deeper European integration and a “United States of Europe” by 2025 “Europe does not always work for its people rather too often for the big companies” he said outlining a populist vision that goes well beyond Merkel’s own openness to limited structural reforms and bureaucratic streamlining Talks between the two parties are expected to begin in earnest in the new year A special congress will have to be convened at which party members will vote on whether to support a final agreement which could fall short of a formal coalition and could include tolerating a minority government Stephan Weil the influential premier of the state of Lower Saxony said the SPD would want to see its policies reflected in return for supporting any government “I think the majority of the delegates see themselves as a European party and they expect that Germany becomes a driving force in Europe again” he said of Schulz’s proposals regarding the European Union Schulz’s proposals were received more cautiously by Merkel Social Democratic Party (SPD) delegates vote to enter talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives on negotiating a government during an SPD party convention in Berlin Germany November 7 2017 REUTERS/Axel Schmidt“The (EU‘s) ability to act should be at the forefront now” she said at a Berlin press conference “So I will concentrate on more cooperation in defence by 2025 and on other issues” including employment and innovation Outside the congress hall SPD youth activists many of whom want the party to chart a distinctive course after spending eight of the past 12 years in centrist coalitions handed out red cards reading “No Grand Coalition” “Merkel leads this country without direction” said one speaker addressing the conference “She has no plan for Europe she leads the country from week to week We need a strong social democracy in this country” Schulz who initially said his party should go into opposition after being punished for participating in the previous grand coalition under Merkel apologised for his party’s disastrous electoral result Slideshow (3 Images)UNITED STATES OF EUROPE Schulz attacked European moves to support big banks while doing little to counter high youth unemployment “When states can’t balance their budgets they face draconian sanctions from Brussels If we can mobilise billions for bank rescues but have to fight for paltry sums to support jobs for young people then this is definitely not my Europe” He struck a tone that was more critical of big companies than French President Emmanuel Macron who is pushing for deeper euro zone integration and pro-business reforms under a euro zone finance minister He took aim at US technology firms Apple (AAPLO) Facebook (FBO) and Google (GOOGLO) saying a strong Europe was needed to make them stick to the rules and protect the rights of workers in a changing economy “We don’t want an app-directed service society but we want digitalisation to lead to more individual freedom” he said to applause calling for steps to protect the digital economy’s self-employed from becoming “self-exploiters” On the issue of immigration one of the main reasons for the collapse of Merkel’s first attempt at a coalition the SPD opposes a conservative plan to extend a ban on the right to family reunions for some accepted asylum seekers “There can be no upper limit to the right to protection from war and persecution” Schulz told

Published: April 29 2016 1:27 am Related News A DAY after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation declared its intention to use No- Development Zones (NDZ) to create affordable housing open spaces and social amenities environmentalists and activists slammed the move citing the impact of construction on some of these areas that may be ecologically fragile and questioning the definition of ‘affordable’ housing The developable NDZ lands according to the BMC are in areas such as Marve Malvani Aksa and other northern suburbs According to provisions to be introduced in the revised draft of Development Control Regulations all reservations on NDZ lands are to be deleted unlocking these areas for development The NDZ land is to be brought under an Affordable Housing and Amenity policy through which construction will be allowed on these lands only for residential purposes One- third of every NDZ plot will be open for residential construction especially for affordable housing the rest to be given up for amenities and open spaces Share This Article Related Article To incentivize construction of affordable housing the BMC has offered a Floor Space Index (FSI) of three to developers For those not willing or are unable to generate affordable housing existing zonal FSI will remain Flagging environmental concerns activists said most of the NDZs are located in CRZ areas and classified as environmentally sensitive Environmentalist Stalin D said “Development on NDZ is likely to lead to flooding especially in the saltpan areas where the storm water collects and drains during low tide There has been no consideration of environmental issues that will occur The effects of that will be seen this year itself when above average rainfall is expected” Architect and executive director of the Urban Design Research Institute Pankaj Joshi pointed out that there are no transportation facilities or infrastructure to make NDZ areas accessible to people “How would one reach there since there is no proper transportation currently available Apart from simply providing FSI the plan also has to provide credible public transportation and there is nothing proposed so far If it is not holistically planned the whole thing will become a form of speculative development” he said Activists also shared a common view that the term ‘affordable housing’ was deeply problematic and is likely to be misused Activist Rishi Aggarwal said “These decisions would only benefit a group of people who are mingling with the bureaucrats of the city The decision to open up the NDZ land and the Coastal Road has been shaped by the developers especially on the West Coast The bogey of affordable housing has been played for 20 years But the BMC’s track records show consistent failure” Adding to the argument Joshi stated that the term ‘affordable housing’ needs to be defined in terms of pricing “According to UN standards a property is termed affordable if it can be purchased within 100 monthly salaries of the individual The term ‘affordable’ as mentioned in the provision is very subjective and there is no mention of how the BMC will control the price of the property” he said He added that affordable housing is just a form of tokenism Emphasising on improving the quality of life of the people who are current residents of the city Stalin stated that this provision is piling an additional load on the city “The BMC needs to focus on decongesting the city instead of creating space for more people when there isn’t enough infrastructure to support them all” he said WATCH INDIAN

Compiled by Manoj CG For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsAn all-party meeting convened by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on 21 November had resolved to end political violence in the northern district of Kannur but the merchants of death have breached the deal in less than two months by murdering a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker in his own Assembly constituency in the district The cycle of political killings going on since the Assembly election in 2016 May returned to haunt the district with the murder of 52-year old Mullapram Ezhuthan Santhosh An unidentified gang broke into his house at Andallur near Dharmadom at 1130 pm on Wednesday and hacked him to death His wife and two children were not at home at the time of murder Santhosh himself had informed his friends about the attack but he had succumbed to the injury by the time they rushed him to the hospital Blaming the ruling Communist Party of India (Marxist) the district unit of the BJP staged a shut-down strike in the district in protest against the murder The dawn to dusk strike affected normal life in the districts with shops and business establishments downing shutters and vehicles keeping off the road District leaders of the CPM have denied the charge Party Pinarayi area secretary K Manoharan urged the police to bring the killers before the law The leader said in a statement on Thursday that the party would not protect if any party men were found involved in the crime Family of a deceased BJP activist at funeral File image Image sourced by TK Devasia BJP district president Sathya Prakash said Santhosh was murdered by the CPM activists due to political rivalry He told the Firstpost that the party men had targeted him after he contested the local body election at Andallur Local police believe that the murder could be the culmination of the clashes going on between the CPM and BJP activists in the area for some time now An official at Dharmadam station said that the student wings of the two parties had clashed at the local college over the celebration of Vivekanada Jayanthi “The Students Federation of India (SFI) the student wing of the CPM has been unleashing a reign of terror in the area They attacked an RSS activist in the area without any provocation They also assaulted a school student for refusing to attend a meeting of the SFI” the BJP leader said Sathya Prakash said that the RSS office at Thaliparampu was attacked soon after the murder of Santhosh He said that the attack came after the chief minister used the ongoing state school art festival forum at Kannur to warn befitting reply to ‘those’ who try to suppress freedom of expression A debate has been raging in the state over the freedom of expression after senior BJP leaders came down heavily on cultural leaders including noted writer and Jnanpith award winner M T Vasudevan Nair for criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation drive While they questioned the academic qualification of the writer to comment on an economic issue a film director who came to the defence of the writer was asked to leave the country Pinarayi termed this as a manifestation of the Sangh Parivar’s intolerance to criticism finding its way in the state while inaugurating the school arts festival and warned that this will not work in a politically enlightened state like Kerala BJP leader from neighbouring Karnataka and Lok Sabha MP Nalin Kumar Kateel countered the Kerala leader by warning that the Central Government would intervene if BJP workers continued to be physically targeted in the state and the CPM may also face retaliation in other parts of the country as well "They (CPM) will come to know about the strength of the BJP in other parts of the country if they did not stop violence against the BJP workers in Kerala" Kateel said while addressing a meeting of the BJP Kerala state committee at Kottaym The murder in Kannur followed the death of two BJP workers in an attack on their house at Kanjikode in Palakkad district in the last week of December Radhakrishnan (55) and his wife Vimala both members of the BJP were injured when a gas cylinder exploded after a group of CPM workers set fire to three bikes kept in a shed near the kitchen With these deaths the number of people killed in political violence in the state since the assumption office by the Left Democratic Front (LDF) government has gone up to 11 The cycle of deaths started when a CPM worker was killed in a bomb attack on a CPM victory procession at Dharmadom on the votes counting day on 19 May Majority of the murders in the current bout of political violence has occurred at Dharmadom from where Pinarayi was elected to the Assembly in 16 May election The Sangh Parivar had expressed fear over the escalation of political violence in the district in the event of Vijayan becoming chief minister The Prime Minister had urged Pinarayi to take concrete steps to end the spectre of political violence in the state in his fist meeting after assuming office as the chief minister Senior BJP leader say that Pinarayi had not taken any step to restore peace in Kannur because he believed in physical annihilation of political opponents The BJP Kannur district president pointed out that Pinarayi had made foray into active politics by murdering an RSS activist at Thalaserry in the district in 1969 The murder of Vadikkal Ramakrishnan is considered as the first political murder in the northern district Sathya Prakash said that the chief minister and his colleagues in the CPM believe that they can prevent the rise of alternate political forces by creating an atmosphere of terror He sees such a clear pattern in the murder politics in Kannur “The murders in Kannur district clearly suggest a strategy by the CPM to prevent the growth of the BJP and RSS by physically eliminating its workers Though they have not succeeded in achieving the objective even after killing many of our workers the CPM is not ready to abandon the path of violence” he added Sathya Prakash said that the party will face all challenges and emerge as a third alternative in the state A senior leader of the party has sought imposition of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFPSA) in Kannur to enable the political parties to carry out their democratic activities BJP state Intellectual Cell convener TG Mohandas has taken up the matter with Home Minister Rajnath Singh citing the high incidence of violence as well as the terrorist and fake currency rackets He said that he made demand as the police officials had expressed their helplessness in restoring normalcy in the district “The police officials are helpless when the party in power is giving patronage to the perpetrators of the violence and its senior leaders are openly advocating the use of violent methods The law and order has totally collapsed in the district” he added’ Meanwhile the
